We had always been taught that when Russia signed a treaty with Israel the Anti-Christ would appear within the next three years. I think it was in the late 90’s when a friend called me to report that she had just heard on the radio that such a treaty had just been signed, I fell on my knees in fear.
“God I have not prayed enough. I have not done enough for you. I am not ready for you.” The Holy Spirit reminded me that we are not saved by our works, but by the blood of Jesus. What an amazing relief swept over me.
I no longer look for his coming in fear, but in hope of the revelation of Jesus Christ and of the brethren (Romans 8:15-17; 1 John 2:28; 1 Peter 1:5)
