Living with Anticipation

He who is the faithful witness to all these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
—Revelation 22:20

We can study Bible prophecy all day long, but if it isn’t impacting the way that we live, then we are missing the point. As 1 John 3:2-3 tells us, “Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is. And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as he is pure.” Living in the light of Christ’s imminent return should make a difference in our behavior.

At the opening of annual economic forum in St. Petersburg, Russia where hundreds of global chief executives are gathered, the Russian President Medvedev said that he and his government are willing to help lead efforts to build a new world economic order after the old system collapsed in the present global financial crisis. Medvedev says that the bubbles that created the illusion of flourishing economies have burst which the Russian leader said is a situation which creates a challenge and an opportunity for Russia to build a modern, flourishing, and strong Russia that would then be a co-founder of a world economic order and a full partner in the collective political leadership of the post economic crisis world – a new world order.
