July—August 2024

The world is on precipice of major geopolitical changes. The United States is suffering severe decline and is increasingly being challenged globally. Lawlessness is rising in countries worldwide, with increasing hostility to those following biblical principles. This widespread lawlessness is seen as a biblical sign of the end times. While many hope for political solutions and restored national power, such hopes are likely to be disappointed, and conditions will worsen. However, there is no need for despair! Ultimate hope lies in the future that Jesus Christ will bring.

They know it will impact their future.

The Last Best Hope of Earth

As the United States celebrates its national birthday and gears up for a rancorous political election season, many lament how far the nation has fallen from its early aspirations and fear its soon-coming demise—of losing what Abraham Lincoln called “the last best hope of earth.” But America was never that. The true last best hope is yet ahead.
