A lot of times, we tend to think of God as a God of the past. We say things like, “Sure, He did some amazing stuff 2000+ years ago, but this is the 21st century. Is He really still around?”
The answer is yes. Our God is a God of the past, present, and future. Let’s take a look at Habakkuk 1:5.
Look around at the nations; look and be amazed! For I am about to do something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.
The book of Habakkuk was written 600 years before Christ was born, but this verse still applies to us today. When we see miracles around us (family members healed from sickness, friends receiving Christ into their hearts), we can’t deny that God is active in our daily lives.
The truth is, God cares about us very much. Enough to send his only Son to die on a cross for us, so that we wouldn’t have to pay the price for our sins–death (John 3:16; Romans 5:8; Romans 6:23).
As for the future? Check out my Rapture and Tribulation page. God is coming back soon. He’s going to take His church home, and we’re going to spend the rest of eternity with him. Sure sounds like the future to me, and one that I want to be a part of!
We will never really have faith in God until we realize that He is not only a God of the past. God knew you before time began; He loves you today; and He knows who you’ll one day be. He’s the God who was and is and is to come.
I am the Alpha and the Omega–the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come–the Almighty One.” (Revelation 1:8)
