1: A Time of Tribulations (Matthew 24:21)

Jesus Himself warned us that there would be times of great tribulation in this world. These tribulations may come in various forms, such as persecution, trials, and hardships. However, we are called to take heart and find our refuge and strength in the Lord, knowing that He has overcome the world.

2: The Spiritual Warfare We Are Involved in (Ephesians 6:12)

We are engaged in a spiritual battle against the forces of darkness, powers, and principalities. Our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the spiritual forces of evil. Therefore, we must arm ourselves with the armor of God and stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

3: The Consequence of Sin and Rebellion against God (Romans 6:23)

Sin separates us from God and leads to death. The consequences of sin are grave, but God offers us the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. We must repent of our sins and turn back to God, seeking His forgiveness and mercy.

4: The Need for Repentance in This Time (Acts 3:19)

In times of tribulation and spiritual warfare, it is crucial that we humble ourselves before God, repent of our sins, and turn back to Him with contrite hearts. Through genuine repentance, we open the door for God's forgiveness and restoration in our lives.

5: The Warning Against Idolatry and the Worship of Other Gods (Exodus 20:4)

Idolatry is a grave sin that displeases God. We are warned against worshiping anything or anyone other than the one true God. In times of tribulation, we must guard our hearts against the temptation to put our trust and devotion in idols or false gods.

6: The Importance of Prayer and Seeking Divine Guidance (Jeremiah 33:3)

In the midst of tribulations and spiritual warfare, prayer becomes our lifeline to God. We are encouraged to call upon the Lord and seek His guidance and wisdom. God promises to answer us and show us great and unsearchable things that we do not know.

7: The Call to Be Salt and Light in a Dark World (Matthew 5:14)

As followers of Christ, we are called to be salt and light in this world, shining brightly amidst the darkness and preserving the truth of God's Word. Even in times of tribulation and turmoil, we are to let our light shine before others, pointing them to the hope and salvation found in Jesus Christ.
