Never in my life have I seen three viruses descend upon the planet all at the same time. Is there any hope for humanity? Only for the true Christian is their hope, because no matter what happens at least he is assured of eternal life free from all the pain that’s coming upon the world. I am afraid that the coming Antichrist and his New World Order will use each of these viruses as a means to their end to establish total control over all of humanity. These viruses will unleash an unimaginable fear to have ever fallen upon the entire world. No, this is not a plot for an upcoming horror movie nor is it the vain imagination of a would be prophet. Perhaps it’s only reality in the making that simply needs to be unmasked. Only time will prove or disprove what I am about to write. The order in which these viruses are unveiled should in no way elevate their importance or the magnitude of their destruction. What is important however is that they all work in tandem to frighten the entire world into total submission to its new world leaders. Continue reading The Three Viruses
Depression is an exhaustive subject that needs our serious consideration, because of the great number of people now experiencing its devastating effect. Webster’s dictionary simply states that depression is an emotional condition characterized by feelings of hopelessness, inadequacy, etc. I am afraid that definition is now inadequate to say the least. Although a mild form of depression may be as simple as feeling sort of sad or that things just aren’t working out as they should. It can on the other hand turn quickly into a more serious condition if not dealt with properly.
As we have already seen in the previous article many different problems not dealt with biblically can cause depression. The more unresolved problems the deeper the depression. So let’s look at another major problem that many Christians experience because they have not turned to God’s Word, but have chosen to listen to the world’s counselors. The problem of guilt is an issue never dealt with in psychiatry. Yet it is very common for the devil to keep whispering in your ear that you have not been really forgiven and if believed your guilt remains. Guilt is a virus that eats deeply into the heart of man keeping him from experiencing the joy of his salvation.
The world is gripped with fear for many different reasons, such as life-threatening illness, losing your job, being deeply in debt, hounded by your creditors, arrested as a Christian or facing persecution along with many other problems can cause fear and if not dealt with in a biblical way can also cause depression. So as a Christian, how do you respond to fear in a biblical way? If you have a life-threatening illness, or lost your job or been arrested and cannot work or even facing persecution, you may feel as though you have lost everything and may even lose your life. You may feel helpless to provide for your love ones. You may need a complete re-orientation on how you have been looking at things. You may need what they call a reality check.
As we have already seen in the previous articles many things can cause depression and the more problems not dealt with in a biblical way, the deeper the depression. So let’s look at another problem that can cause depression, which so many suffer from today – loneliness. Why does loneliness run so rampant in our society? Could it be because there is little face to face fellowship with other people on a regular basis? Much of the world spends an enormous amount of time sitting in front of their TV sets, their computers, or on their Smartphones. Indeed there is plenty to keep us busy, but many have only a few friends, if any at all, and they too are busy sitting in front of their TV sets, their computers, and on their Smartphones. After awhile, loneliness can turn into depression especially if there are other problems present that are not dealt with in a biblical way.
