All this I have told you so that you will not go astray.
Jesus reminded the disciples and us that we live in a wicked world. He told of the deceiver and how he would try and leas us away. We must remain focused in Christ. The world will hate us and try to tear us down, but we are to remember that it is because we have Christ in us is why they hate us. Until the lost have the peace of Christ they will fight against Him. God reminds us that there is a victorious end for us. No matter what we go through on earth it will be okay - we have hope - we have a great Comforter, Savior and Friend! Be aware that many things will try to take our focus away from Christ, but we know the Truth and can stay focused!
Continue to read through verse 4 – this is a WOW! It truly explains the times that we are living in. We see evidence because of the suicide bombers who believe they are doing this for God, it's just a false god. How people can doubt the Bible is beyond me. Even though it was written 2,000 years ago it speaks so clear of what is going on today.
