In this present day, our life appears to be normal; however, we need to remind ourselves that in the coming last days or end of years of time before Jesus’ return, there will be a period when life as we know it will change in an instant. Many people will be undoubtedly frightened because “there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:25–26). However, those with faith having refuge in the Kingdom of God will not be afraid.

“[THEN COMETH THE END], when he shall have [DELIVERED UP] the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).
“But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another” (Psalm 75:7).

“THE LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: [THE WORLD ALSO IS STABLISHED, THAT IT CANNOT BE MOVED].Thy throne is [ESTABLISHED OF OLD: THOU ART FROM EVERLASTING]” (Psalm 93:1-2).
“Fear before him, all the earth: [THE WORLD ALSO SHALL BE STABLE, THAT IT BE NOT MOVED]. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth” (1 Chronicles 16: 30-31).
