Birth Pangs to a Breakthrough


Clearly, in Matthew 24 Jesus speaks of times when many will be speaking saying that ‘this is of the Lord’, there will be wars, and rumors of wars, there will be racial unrest, there will be political strife, there will be famine, pestilence and earthquakes. But He said that these are merely the beginning of ‘birth pangs’. Paul wrote in Romans 8: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.19For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God (or the manifestation of the children of God). 20For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope 21that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.” You would have to be blind person to miss this…… "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which do not believe, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." – 2nd Corinthians 4:3-4
