And her gates languish;
Her people sit on the ground in mourning garments,
And the cry of Jerusalem has ascended.
3 Their nobles have sent their servants for water;
They have come to the cisterns and found no water.
They have returned with their containers empty;
They have been put to shame and humiliated,

“Expert Climatologists” say we are the victims of our own success as a species. Prophecy buffs are convinced that “the end is near”. They can’t all be right. At times like these I find that the greatest comfort to be had comes from the Word of God. “Peace! Be still!” (Mark 4:39) Jesus said to the raging storm. And what happened? According to the witness of the twelve the wind and the waves obeyed this sharp rebuke from the Son of man. We may very well perish in the current “crisis”. Either way what is ahead is far better than what is behind. So, like Paul I will endeavor with as much as is in me to “press on toward the goal” (Philippians 3:14) and leave the worry to Him who knows the beginning from the end
