It seems like more countries than usual are experiencing political unrest/turmoil. It’s disconcerting. The first thing I think of is the signs of Christ’s Return. The older I get the more eagerly I await the Return of Christ.  Today I read in 2 Peter 3:12 that we should be “looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God.” Backing up to verse 9, apparently one of the reasons  the day of Christ’s Return appears to “slowed down” could be that the Lord is not willing that any should perish but the ALL would come to repentance.  Is that possible? He is patient and wants to see more people saved before He returns?  Chew on that one for a while.

When we hear of all the countries with polical uprisings, civil wars, etc., it’s a reminder to pray for the salvation of the people in these countries.  Now Russia is having similar uprisings against Putin.  Praise International sponsors about 20 Russian pastors.  Pray for these pastos and for their families.
