Recently when recording Jim Cantelon Today TV I was asked by the director what my thoughts were re: the state of the world. He referenced the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban, the ongoing conflicts  in Ethiopia, Yemen, Sudan, Libya etc, the wildfires in California, Greece, Turkey, Italy, and Israel, the floods in Turkey, Japan, and China, the virulent “fourth wave” of Covid, and on and on…What do you think Jim? Are we living in the last days?”

My thoughts, of course, are just that-my thoughts. But I’m sure our world has never seen so many crises at one time. We’re in a global perfect storm.

Two things come to mind. One is that God is omniscient. There are no surprises for him, nor is anything beyond his control. He is sovereign. As to the “last days” the Bible teaches that a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like a day to him. In heaven’s view we’re only two days on from the resurrection of Jesus. So…

What do I think? I think this is our Father’s world and we’re in his care. How things shake out is entirely up to him. I trust his love.
