For then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matthew 24:21. GREAT is my boldness of speech toward you, GREAT is my glorying of you: I am filled with comfort, I AM EXCEEDING JOYFUL IN ALL OUR TRIBULATION. 2 Corinthians 7:4. Have you noticed, everything about the soon coming (?) future is GREAT. We have Great Tribulation and Great Boldness. One will be very hard, one will be very Powerful. What else will be Great? God has ALWAYS been Great, He will continue TO be Great, and will FOREVER BE GREAT. Everything He does is Great. All throughout the Bible are many stories of Great and Marvellous Things He has done for His People. And He wants to share some of that Greatness THROUGH His People to a lost and dying world. Yes, some people "get" a taste of that greatness and try to grab it for themselves declaring how great THEIR ministry is and what kind of great things THEY have done. They've already received their rewards here, now. They'll have the rest of eternity wishing they Knew Christ and had lifted Him up and not themselves. So if a Great God does Great Things for His people, can He not continue to do Great, AND GREATER THINGS FOR HIS PEOPLE, ABOVE AND BEYOND the greatness of the great Tribulation? "... When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him". Isaiah 59:19. No matter what kind of Great Tribulation is raised up against sinners and God-Haters of this world, the Lord God Almighty WILL raise up a VERY GREAT-ER STANDARD FOR HIS PEOPLE, AGAINST the enemy's flood of sin and filthiness. For the Believer, Great Tribulation will be met with GREATER PROVISION, MERCY AND GRACE than ever seen before on this earth. If God can keep Christ Pure in the face of Satanic Death and Destruction, than He will SURELY keep you too. DECIDE, is your God Greater than ALL your tribulations and trials? Is He able to Keep You, that You too may, Be Blessed?
