What the Bible says about what's in the News?

I am not a big fan of watching the news. It's sad and depressing to me and scary to my children. I do however receive Fox breaking news emails about top stories. I am very much out of the loop when it comes to things like Robin Williams committing suicide. The ice bucket challenge seemed silly to me and just simply a waste of water. A football star kicked out of the NFL for drugs hardly seems relevant. Who won the US Open is not interesting AT ALL! I am just not lured in by all the nonsense.

The stuff that does catch my attention is what is happening to Christians in other countries. Beheading another human being is the most gruesome form of murder I have ever seen. How anybody in their right mind can do this and sleep at night is just crazy! I will never understand the way they think but I do know who is in control. God knew this was going to happen. We are warned of this in the Bible how things will only get worse on this earth before Jesus returns. It's getting closer to his return the signs of the time are all around us.

 Matthew 24:6-7 - And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Luke 21:11 - And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

 2 Timothy 3:1-5 - This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

 1 Thessalonians 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

I hope that when you watch the news you are reminded of what the Bible says.
