Yes, the song titled Jesus Is Coming Soon starts off with the words troublesome times are here. It’s an upbeat song composed by R.E. Winsett in 1942. I remember singing it in church as a child. As you look at the lyrics you will see that the words in the first verse of this song seem very relevant to what we are going through in our world today. Here are the lyrics:

Verse 1

Troublesome times are here, filling men’s hearts with fear

Freedom we all hold dear now is at stake

Humbling your hearts to God saves from the chastening rod

Seek the way pilgrims trod, Christians awake

Chorus

Jesus is coming soon, morning or night or noon

Many will meet their doom, trumpets will sound

All of the dead shall rise, righteous meet in the skies

Going where no one dies, heavenward bound

Verse 2

Troubles will soon be o’er, happy forevermore

When we meet on that shore, free from all care

Rising up in the sky, telling this world goodbye

Homeward we then shall fly, glory to share

Chorus

Jesus is coming soon, morning or night or noon

Many will meet their doom, trumpets will sound

All of the dead shall rise, righteous meet in the skies

Going where no one dies, heavenward bound

As we navigate through these days when many are saying troublesome times are here and some people’s hearts are filling with fear. The next line says, freedom we all hold dear now is at stake. Many today feel that our freedom is at stake because of the things we see in the news. The words to this song definitely seem relevant to these times we are living in.

Let’s look at Matthew 24:4-13.

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Jesus warned us that these troublesome times would come. He also told us to be careful not to let any man deceive us. He says many will be deceived so whomever this person is must be very cunning. He tells us in verse 6 not to be troubled because these things must happen but the end is not yet. He warns that we will experience famines, pestilences and earthquakes. Following that up in verse 8 with words much less than encouraging that these are the beginning of sorrows. We see many Christians being martyred in some countries around the world. Persecution seems to be on the rise in general. In verse 11 Jesus warns that many false prophets will arise and that many will be deceived by them. We are fold that the love of many will grow cold. Verse 13 tells us it’s possible to endure to the end of all these things.

John 13:35 (KJV) By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

If you don’t have a bible or have one but aren’t studying it.  I strongly suggest you try to make some time in your schedule to start experiencing all that it has to say especially about these days we now find ourselves living in.  If you’re needing to get a new bible or maybe one for a friend you can order one from this Amazon link.
Stay safe, be prepared, and don’t be deceived.  Blessings my sisters.
