Today, I want us to address a mindset, a dark fear and anxiety, that has probably taken hold of most people here at some point in their walk with Christ. If this has not been a problem for you, it is only a matter of time before Satan attempts to use this tactic against you. Some of you, if you were honest, have been plagued by this issue for some time—having your joy, and maybe even your faith diminished greatly because of difficult events in our lives. Or sometimes, just because we watch the world around us, as we are trying to serve Christ. Many of us, if not all, experience times when we just don't think things are adding up the way they should be.

The entire Old Testament was used through stories, prophecies, laws, instruction, poetry, etc. to tell about the coming of, give the details of, prepare the way for the Messiah. The New Testament is the story of that long awaited event as it actually unfolded (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), the story of how God worked to spread the message of His Son to the first century world through the most unexpected and unwilling people (Acts), the instructions God gave for establishing and growing His new Bride the Church (Epistles) so that He might show His love to a broken world and heal and save as many people as possible, and the future plans God has for His Redeemed Beloved (Revelation).
