In Times of Distress Who Can You Turn to for Comfort?

In a recent article I wrote about the need for those of us who know the truth to "stand firm" against the forces of evil, and tell other people the good news that the end will come when Jesus restores everything, defeating Satan and handing the Kingdom over to the Father. I wrote: "And living by these truths makes us enemies of the world system currently ruled by Satan, which means any beliefs we have that make us think we deserve an easy and carefree life, is a lie from Satan himself. The true believer who lives by these truths is ALWAYS a persecuted believer who has to endure great hardship. It has always been that way, and it always will be, until the final end where Christ returns." Does this mean that as we watch the world around us descend into chaos, where many have already suffered or died due to the eugenic practices of the medical mafia and the vaccine cult, and where many more may die and suffer in the days ahead, that we are to just expect that our lives will be filled with stress, anxiety, and extreme sorrow and pain with no hope for relief in this life? No. For the person who truly believes and knows Jesus Christ, we are promised great comfort while we endure extreme sorrow and hardships in this life, and that is what I want to look at in this article. In his second letter to the believers living in the city of Corinth contained in the Bible, Paul wrote: "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows."
