Preparing For The Day Of Calamity, Part 2 of 2 (Famines, Deserts And Other Hard Places)

June 25, 2021

Many people stash away cash in case the day of calamity comes. But what if your money is of no value on that day? To trust in riches is to trust in a vapor that passes away. James talks a great deal about economic justice for the poor, telling us that one day, our gold and silver will not buy anything. This message contains some stark lessons for a future that may be just around the corner.

Many people watch the stock market like a hawk. Some get nervous when the price of gold drops. We all need money. But one day the money we crave will be no more. One day, all that gives us security will vanish, and that is the day of final judgment. Then, who we are before God will be all that matters.

Sometimes, we are tempted to take the easy way out of a trial, even though we know that the easy way is not God’s way. Jesus, hungry and thirsty, was offered all the kingdoms of the world if only He would worship Satan. Sometimes we see a quick solution to our crisis, and we are tempted to dishonor God to meet legitimate needs.

Sometimes we find ourselves going directly from great blessing to times of great trial. That’s what happened to Jesus. He was led by God into the wilderness and found Himself tempted to sin by the devil. Hungry and thirsty, He was very vulnerable—but He fought off Satan by using the word of God.

Advertisers say that having more is what life is all about. We need more money, a bigger house, and nicer vacations. But having less can be a greater blessing. Having less means reaching out to those around you because you have to. Family and community mean much more when tough times come. As we face tough times, let’s learn important lessons from the life of a woman in the Old Testament.

It’s been said that if all the tears people ever cried could be gathered up, they’d fill an ocean. Sorrow comes to all of us. Life does have joys, and some people think that’s all it should have. But God also allows tears, because through tears we learn to depend on God for every breath, every bite of food, and every dollar in our wallets. In this message we hear a story of God’s provision.

When tough times come—and they are coming—God shakes us up to make sure we remember who our real provider is. He can sustain us through adversity. Downsizing might not be fun, especially when it may be necessary. But even through trials God is working to develop our character. This message contains some key principles to hang onto when your crisis comes.

When God wants to deepen our spiritual maturity, He sometimes takes away all the comforts we’re used to. Some of us move out of state, where a new job falls apart. Some of us are told that we have only weeks or months to live. It’s possible for God to lead His people into the wilderness for their greater good and His greater glory.

When God chooses to judge a nation, He has several methods at His disposal. One of them is economic collapse. When the house of cards called “Debt” comes crashing down, everybody loses. Society may well break down if hyperinflation ruins our currencies. God can allow human greed to cause massive suffering. In this message we learn how God can exact judgment on nations.

The days ahead may well be days of less money, fewer options, higher prices, and more uncertainty. For many, the comforts we’ve known may fade away into an even tougher reality—no job, no insurance, perhaps a foreclosed home. How do we handle deprivation when all we’ve known is abundance? This message will help prepare us for “such a time as this.”

Our bad habits create prisons of our own making. The walls we build keep us from being all that we could and should be. But God wants us to be free. That’s why He’s made for us a way of escape. In this message we hear final thoughts on breaking the chains that bind us.
