Chicken Little Fears.


According to the chicken-little fear-monger's mongering fear tactics “The Sky Is Falling In”. The gloom and doom say-ers have more faith in Islamic power to bring destruction and chaos and give rise to “the antichrist” than in God’s power of love and grace.

These gloomers and doomers sing their song of “gloom, doom, despair and agony on me” and encourage people to take a stand against what is happening on the world scene, if not we will be overthrown by the terrorists, our cities will be flattened by tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and typhoons brought on by God because of the sins of the people. Should not the gloomers and doomers know, if the Bible...a book they believe is error-less...prophesy's such, is not standing against all the perceived evils the Bible prophesies will happen, standing against the Bible and God?

I understand that it is easy to get people to believe their fear-mongering tactics; the choir of voices out there singing the “gloom, doom, despair and agony on me” song is convincing because of: racism, violence, greed, pain, bigotry, selfishness, hatred portrayed by people is convincing, to say the least.

These gloomers and doomers parade the bad news across the T.V. screens and internet feeds. We hear it in politician's speeches, and through many gloom and doom preachers.

They preach that the society has fallen apart, the devil is in control and that God is kicked out of town. They tell us that God’s grace and love has no power to stem the tide of evilness, and unless God pours out judgement and wrath to destroy people He created the devil will win. They show us how awful it is and tell us it is only going to get worse because the Bible predicts it. If the Bible says it is only going to get worse...isn’t fighting against it, fighting against God’s will?

It is easy to assume they’re right. I mean, I am not as dumb as some people think, I have eyes and ears. I watch and listen to the news. I see what people are posting on the internet. Yes it is enough to make you throw in the towel, to run fast and far until by breath and body fail. Some days, In the natural it is tough and to admit defeat and just give up would be easy.

But then I remember a TRUTH; GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL!

I am reminded that God who started the show, runs the show and will wrap-up the show by tweaking it until it’s perfect.

And when my mind and heart settle on that truthful truth, I can take my focus off of the religious gloom and doomers and their incessant noise of fear and doubt and distraction and  realize that all is not lost, and I can rest in His Grace and Love.

If God is who He says He is; if He is a God worth worshiping at all, then I have no right to be taking things into my own hands or be lost in hopelessness. Pessimism is not an option. Giving-in to the gloom and doomers simply will not do. Why? Because God is:

Greater than sin...
Greater than the economy...
Greater than the governments...
Greater than the Obama's of the world...
Greater than religious fear-mongering...
Greater than natural disasters...
Greater than stock market crashes...
Greater than job losses and downturns...
Greater than the judgmental and condemning people on facebook...
Greater than the mess that you and I create that we find ourselves in...

God’s GRACE and LOVE is GREATER than it ALL!

So, do not despair or worry when they tell you that the sky is falling and the anti-christ is about to appear, either they don't know or need to be reminded…Why do you say, O Jacob, and complain, O Israel, “My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God”? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:27-31)

People, the sky is not falling, because our loving Father God is holding up the sky.

The gloomers and doomers...as in the past...will slink away with their tail between their legs and their heads hung in shame for such a shallow view of our ALL POWERFUL GOD and the POWER of HIS NEVER FAILING LOVE AND GRACE! Things are going to work out, His plan for humanity will prevail despite the gloom and doom fear-mongers.

In the words of God Himself..."BE NOT AFRAID." He has all the bases covered.
