Summary: We live in a scary time. People are worried about so many things. The Bible is being fulfilled on a daily basis. There are some things that we don’t have to be afraid.


Luke 21:26-28

Luke 21:26-28 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

We live in a scary time. People are worried about Terrorism. People are worried about the weather. They are worried about natural disasters. People are worried about their jobs. People are worried about the government. Folks are worried about escalating prices. There are people who are afraid to go outside their home after dark. Our schools are armed camps. You can’t go to city hall without being checked for weapons. You have to take you shoes off before you fly. People are shooting people on the freeways today. and so on.

Certainly we can say that the powers of the heaven are being shaken today.

The Apostle Paul spoke well of the morals of our day:

2Ti 3:1-5 {The message} Don’t be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They’ll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes they’re animals. Stay clear of these people.

Most of the things we as American’s a few years ago thought would always remain steadfast – all of a sudden we realize that we can’t depend on any of these things. We live in radically CHANGING TIME.

What we need today is some things we can really depend on.

T/S Let me share with you 6 things that we can COUNT ON. (I am sure there are many, many more . . .


God is unchangeable in His glory everlasting to everlasting thou are God. (Psa. 90:2)

Isa 6:3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. 4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.

You cannot get a vision of God and it not change you.

God is unchangeable in His purpose. It is to bring all things under the control of his son.

Col 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;

He told one of his friends – Funny you should mention that -– the same

Then went to the Rabbi - Funny you should mention that -– the same

They prayed to God – a thundering voice said, "Funny you should mention that.

God plan and purpose is to bring all things to the feet of Jesus.

that in all things he might have the preeminence. Every knee will bow.


Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Death and taxes.

However, there is an escape clause for the child of God.

1 Co 15:51-55 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
