As students of the Word of God, we should neither be amazed nor perplexed by current events in our nation and the world we live in. As crisis after crisis unfolds, believers will be continually confronted with decisions on how to respond to people and events. Jesus predicted that in the end times, the exponential increase in lawlessness will cause the love of many (even believers) to grow cold. Basic foundational principles form the core response pattern for believers. This is also our platform for gospel of the kingdom to be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations. Ready or not, Jesus is coming back.
