INSECURE?

 
"The great God has revealed to the king what shall be in the future." —Daniel 2:45
 

The gold Babylonian, silver Median, bronze Persian, and iron Hellenistic kingdoms have crumbled (Dn 2:36ff). The great Temple of Jerusalem was destroyed with not one stone left on another (Lk 21:6). The U.S.A. is a young country which may not grow old. "The world as we know it is passing away" (1 Cor 7:31). "The heavens will vanish with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire" (2 Pt 3:10). "Shaken, created things will pass away, so that only what is unshaken may remain. Wherefore, we who are receiving the unshakable kingdom should hold fast to God's grace" (Heb 12:27-28). "The God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed or delivered up to another people; rather, it shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and put an end to them, and it shall stand forever" (Dn 2:44).

We are living in a doomed land. We are living on a bomb about to explode. We are fools if we think there is security in anything other than in Jesus. "Only in God be at rest, my soul, for from Him comes my hope. He only is my Rock and my Salvation, my Stronghold; I shall not be disturbed" (Ps 62:6-7). Praise Jesus forever!

 
Prayer: Jesus, I put my trust in You — alone.
Promise: "Neither must you be perturbed when you hear of wars and insurrections." —Lk 21:9
Praise: St. Cecilia died a slow, painful martyr's death. Although she couldn't talk due to the pain, she is said to have died giving witness to her faith, holding out three fingers, one for each Person of the Holy Trinity.
