Letters to the editor – Dec. 14, 2010
From the desk of Mr. Matson
Increasing yearly, the obvious and many troubles in our world make us all more uncertain and fearful. But what does it mean? What will happen? Scripture says that people will even “die of fright” at the terrible calamities unfolding. And “unless those days had been shortened no living creature would survive.” “Therefore stay awake!” “You must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.” But the prophets of old brought us glad tidings as God promises the world peace and love. “For then the wolf will be a guest of the lamb…the lion will eat hay like the ox…and there shall be no harm or ruin.” So in conclusion, this is not a time for judgemant [sic] but for hope, hope in the ancient promises of God. For we have “good news” proclaimed to us. But again I say “Stay awake!” to the signs of our times. And keep to or return to your Godly way of life.
John Mark Matson
