THE YEOVIL CHRISTADELPHIANS
A SICK WORLD - THE ONLY CURE
We live today in rather a strange world. In many ways it is wonderful - scientists have made astounding advances in medicine, transport and communications. But there is a negative side which seems from the daily news to be growing and which appears to be getting out of control. How often do we hear of countries going to war with each other, sometimes there is unrest between different races living in the same country, even the same towns. Theft, vandalism, murder and famine are the topics of many news headlines - we have heard them so many times that they seem to be the norm. Many today disregard the law, believing that they can do as they please so long as they don't get caught.
Really we live in a sick world, but we need not be surprised, because Jesus told his disciples 2000 years ago that it would be like this in the last days: "There shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars, and upon the earth distress of nations . . . men's hearts failing them for fear". Jesus' message was not a negative one - he left us with a real hope, he said "when these things start to happen, then look up and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh".
The Bible makes it clear that Jesus will return to the earth and we are sure from words spoken by men of old that his coming will be soon. When the Lord Jesus returns the earth will be restored to how it was at the beginning, everything will again be "very good" men will "beat their swords into plough-shares and their spears into pruning-hooks".
The Bible makes us certain that the return of the Lord Jesus is the only cure for this sick world, and you can become part of God's future plan.
