Sabbath blessings and happy New Year! As we begin another year, everything around us indicates that Jesus’ coming is near at hand. So many devastating events are happening so quickly that it’s almost impossible to keep up with them all. Thoughts of fear for the future cascade across the minds of many. Yet as Christians this alarming state of affairs shouldn’t take us by surprise for Jesus says, “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Matt. 24:21. Events of such stupendous magnitude will soon occur, and many will be shaken to their very core. We’re in the midst of a global Tsunami, and no one seems able to halt this tidal wave of destruction and despair.

Because of the hurricane gales coming our way, it’s of the utmost importance that we prepare ourselves and our children. There will be no sideliners. Everyone will be a participant in this game we call life. But there are only two teams—one will open the doors to life eternal and the other will close them forevermore. Our young people must be equipped—physically, mentally, and spiritually—to survive the surging tempest that is swirling around the earth. And when the storm has passed and the battle is over, I pray that we and our children will be numbered with those standing on the sea of glass.

Berean, in this New Year, let’s not falter in our commitment to prepare our youth to stand in the power of God’s might during these closing days of world’s history. We can do this by supporting Christian education. We can place our generous love gifts in the baskets that are brought to us by the children at Offering time or in a tithe envelope (indicate the amount on the Education line). Thank you so much for your past support of Christian education. May God bless you and yours during this New Year.
