Often, when it comes to the things that scare us or assault our faith, we tend to go into a brain freeze, to zone out, to habitually rationalize and procrastinate away the issue like Rocky Balboa in Rocky III when he faced fighting Clubber Lang. He was afraid and ashamed of his fear. He’d lost all confidence in himself. He no longer believed he still had what he once possessed that made him Heavyweight Champion of the World. And he was ready to give up. When Appolo Creed kept pressuring him to work harder, Rocky’s only response was, “Tomorrow. We’ll train tomorrow.” To which Appolo said over and over again, “There is no tomorrow!”
We face a time in our nation when it appears God’s judgment has finally fallen. After allowing the murder of over 65,000,000 unborn children on our watch as the church, God seems to have allowed us to experience the consequences of our sin. Since we, as the church and as a nation, “did not like to retain God in their (our) knowledge, God gave them (us) over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting” (Rom. 1:28). And what are those things which are not fitting? Abortion, sexual promiscuity, homosexuality, idolatry, greed, violence, rebellion, arrogance, transgenderism— you name it, we as a culture are embracing it with open arms.
So what are we to do? How bad is it really going to get? And what can we do to have the faith necessary to persevere during the coming dark times?
These are vital questions for the church today. So keep listening and we’ll discover how to become a Faith Prepper together.
This study is on the importance of preparing your faith today. Why? Because “there is no tomorrow!”
