Testing, Trials, Tribulation

Situations are becoming more serious!
These are tests to determine the faith of you and me.
Assess, acknowledge, appreciate God’s help,
Doing what He says, obediently. 

Wars and rumors of wars are increasing,
More threats and lies and dastardly deeds;
People more wicked than we can imagine,
It’s not more empty promises anyone needs. 

Bad weather, terrible storms are increasing!
Believers, let’s get this message clear; 
God warns us to repent, so let’s do it now,
The Bible tells about it, the end times are here.

His judgments are surely coming upon the world,
Sinfulness grows worse, people’s hearts growing cold;
The LORD enables believers to stand strong,
Thankfully, He continues to make us bold. 

Our example, our words to everyone
must point them to Jesus, Savior of all;
The Judgment Day brings the final word,
so now heed and obey our LORD’s call.
