Salvation, Not Destruction

If you've noticed, the safety of our planet, let alone our country, has been steadily deteriorating as time goes on. From the start of the millennium, 2001, we had the terrorist attack on 9/11 followed a few years later by the Indonesian Tsunami. The very next year, two major hurricanes attacked Lousiana, leaving the well-known city under ruins of water. Global warming is no longer a theory, but a worldwide threat. It seems as if there has been fire after fire, earthquake after earthquake...

How secure are we of our own safety? When we look at our own society, sure it may appear as "the norm" and everyday life, but do you really have any idea how deep we are in danger? All the events that I have mentioned thus far are all stories that we've read about in newspapers, saw on the news, heard word of mouth, or unfortunately participated in. But if any disaster came to all of us directly, what could we do to protect ourselves?
You may think now of a bomb shelter, your cellar, or some other place of hiding, but only one thing...the Bible prophecies that all of these disasters cannot compare to the coming disaster described in the Book of Revelation...and there is no place to hide. Only God can save us!

Yes, there are many sources leading to the prophecy of the end in 2012, but how many of them have taught us how to survive, how to be saved? The end is also prophesied in the Bible:

2 Pet. 3:7 'By the same word the present heavens
and earth are reserved for fire
, being kept
for the day
of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.'

Amos 9:1 "...Not one will get away, none will escape.
Though they dig down to the depths of the grave,
from there my hand will take them.

Though they climb up to the heavens,
from there I will bring them down.
Though they hide themselves on the top of Carmel,
there I will hunt them down and seize them.

Though they hide from me at the bottom of the sea,

there I will command the serpent to bite them.

Though they are driven into exile by their enemies,
there I will command the sword to slay them.
I will fix my eyes upon them
for evil and not for good."
The Lord, the LORD Almighty, he who touches the earth
and it melts,
and all who live in it mourn—"

Sure many churches speak of a final disaster of how the world will end, because we cannot dispute this fact; it is Bible prophecy. However, the only church who proclaims the way to be saved IS IN FACT CHURCH OF GOD WORLD MISSION SOCIETY. Since God controls ALL THINGS, only God can protect and save us. Then let's see in the next post what is the world disaster coming, why is it coming and how will God save us...
