Gathering Theme Verse

'They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever' - Psalm 125:1

We live in a world which is in a state of fear, anxiety and chaos. And whereas the world about us attempts to deal with the events which are happening on a daily basis and are discouraged and perplexed by them, we can take encouragement from these events, for in them we see increasing signs that the return of Christ is very near. We take encouragement from the words of Christ when he told his disciples that 'for the elects sake those days shall be shortened' and 'when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.' We are admonished to 'watch therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.' Let us, therefore, place our full trust in the Lord.
