TIMES WILL GET BETTER

Our planet is wrought with fears of pandemics, wars, earthquakes, and global economic meltdowns. The worst is yet to come for planet earth, for there is a future seven year period known as the Tribulation. At the end of the Tribulation, Jesus Christ will descend from heaven transform nations, and give us a preview of eternity. He will also fulfill all the promises made in the Old Testament to the nation of Israel.

The Millennium will be a time of great peace. It will also be a time of prosperity. The whole world will be economically healthy, and the land of Israel will flourish beyond anything imaginable.

Don't peer into the future with fear and foreboding. Gaze forward with anticipation. Things are going to get better - much better!

Isaiah 11:9 For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord.
