In Christ Alone: Hope in a World of Futility

In Christ Alone: Hope in a World of Futility

CO | YNightingale

As of today most Americans are still living in relative peace and safety, but we are increasingly becoming aware how vulnerable that peace and safety is.

In spite of a lot of disinformation, the internet has successfully pulled back the media propaganda veil for those with eyes to see, exposing issues like chemtrails, EMF dangers, vaccines, GMO’s, and the mass social engineering of society to steer it away from everything that is godly.

With the recent widespread information about Directed Energy Weapons, particularly in correlation with unprecedented “wildfires” worldwide, many are coming to the sober realization that we are living in what will soon be the most terrifying time in history. The world has always faced terror at the hands of evil men, but with today’s technologies, that terror is no longer restricted to any geographical or political demographic; it is worldwide.

Given these merciless realities, it is easy to fall into fear, but God’s Word tells us that when we find ourselves experiencing hardships, calamities and persecutions (2 Corinthians 12:10), we shouldn’t think that something strange is happening, (1 Peter 4:12) but that these things should be expected because we are living in a fallen world that has been subjected to futility. (Romans 8:20)

But the next verse tells us that it was subjected to futility in hope:

“that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.” (Romans 8:21)

For those in Christ, there is a deep inner groaning as we wait for the completion of our redemption. (Romans 8:22–23) But that groaning is infused with hope for what is to come! (Hebrews 13:14)

This is what is meant by being “sorrowful, yet always rejoicing” (2 Corinthians 6:10) We expect sorrow from the world but redemption from our Savior, Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, who will work all things for ultimate good (Romans 8:28).

Jesus understands how frightening the dark days in this world can be (Hebrews 4:15) and He wants us to take heart:

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

This world is not our home.
