Certainties Amidst Uncertainties

“Come now. you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit;’ whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that’” (James 4:13-15)

To say that we live in dangerous days would be an understatement! I hear people say, “This world is going mad.” “It is a crazy, topsy-turvy world.” I would like to suggest that instead of “mad” or “crazy” or any other adjectives, we should use the word “evil!”

Navigating Life in a Sea of Uncertainty - Michael Hyatt
The Bible not only mentions the uncertainties of our lives today, but also some things that are absolutely certain:
  1. “But know this, that in the last days perilous (demonic, fierce,
    treacherous) times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves,
    lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, …”
    (II Timothy 3:1)
  2. “But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and
    being deceived”
    (II Timothy (3:13)
  3. “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the
    beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be”

    (Matthew 24:21)
  4. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the
    heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt
    with fervent heat, both the earth and the works that are in it will be
    burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what
    manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness”

    (II Peter 3:10,11)
  5. “Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, BUT NOW COMMANDS
    ALL MEN EVERYWHERE TO REPENT, because He has appointed a day on
    which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man
    (Jesus Christ)
    whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising
    Him from the dead”
    (Acts 17:30, 31)
