There are legitimate causes for fear in our society today. Not since the Civil War have we encountered so much danger. Never have we seen, on so many fronts, the potential of mass destruction and the possibility of violent death, as we now do in our country.
Technology, when used for good, benefits mankind in health, communication, and every other area of our life. Technology, in the hands of evil forces, sends mankind in a deadly downward spiral to destruction.
We who have a great respect and love for our country find it hard to cope as we realize how far we have descended into a morass of evil. There is no need to make a list. If your senses are working, you know.
Am I wringing my hands crying, "Woe is me? We're done." No, a thousand times, no! Let's bring our Almighty God into the picture with His promises for the future.
"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear"
1 John 4:18a (NASB)
"Say to those with an anxious heart, 'take courage, fear not'" Isaiah 35:4 (NASB)

Keep reading! Read on in Isaiah 41:10, Jeremiah 32:27 and Luke 2:10.
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus" Philippians 4:6, 7 (NASB).

"Lord's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Thy faithfulness" Lamentations 3:22, 23 (NASB).
"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" Romans 8:38, 39 (NASB).
BTR is still providing teaching material from Bible lessons that Don has taught. Please pray with us that God will supply every need and throw open the doors for ministry that will glorify Him.
Listen to Zacharias as he glorifies God at the birth of John the Baptist in Luke 1:74, 75:
"That He would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life."
"He will shield you with his wings. He will shelter you with his feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection" Psalm 91:4 (NLT).
There is absolutely nothing to fear about tomorrow, for God is already there!
