The psalmist Asaph recalled in Psalm 78 how, when facing death, the Israelites remembered they “should put their confidence in God and not forget the works of God but keep His commandments.” (v. 7) Then they “sought Him (God) and returned and search diligently for God and they remembered that God was their Rock and the Most High their Redeemer. (vv. 34-35)
Here, today, in 2020, see how quickly fear spread over the entire earth.
I believe the media and social media will be the anti-christ’s major weapon.
Imagine, in less than two months more than 7 billion people have been reduced to a cowering, trembling mass so laden with dread and panic they will happily give up all their freedom and privacy to ease that fear even a smidgeon.
Man’s technology, combined with a media driven by the knowledge that hysteria breeds readers, has led to his own undoing. And when the anti-christ grabs those reins, watch out!
Psalm 78:53 says: “He led them safely, so that they did not fear but the sea engulfed their enemies.”
There’s plenty to pray for nowadays. Pray this: That people seek God diligently in this time of stress and death and fear.
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than me, Lord.
