How can we possibly live in the middle of a world filled with danger and distress without it troubling us? Those are fair questions and Jesus answered them in that very passage. and shall deceive many. I am Christ. The Bible tells us Jesus upholds all things—that’s right all things! —“by the word of his power” (Hebrews 1:3). the very power by which this world and everything in it exists.by Kenneth Copeland From the BVOV Archives: This classic teaching originally appeared in November 2004. He talked about the very things we are seeing in the world today. we might find we needed Him to say something He hadn’t said yet. O Lord. Why didn’t He say that He upholds all things by the power of His WORD? Then it dawned on me. in fact. Take heed that no man deceive you. but my words shall not pass away” (verses 34-35). He talked about nation rising against nation. the disciples came unto him privately. And if He hadn’t said it. Jesus warned us about these things so they wouldn’t take us by surprise— so we would know there would be trouble. Time is running out. He sa id. He has already said everything that needs to be said!

“Well. Circumstances aren’t going to get easier. time is short. and a light unto my path. What does that mean to you in these troublesome times? It means a great deal! It means that in the midst of danger it’s already been settled in heaven: “There shall no evil befall thee. It’s not enough for us to just lie back and say. He’ll just heal me. if it’s God’s will for me to have victory I guess He’ll just give it to me.
