by Moody Adams Labor pains are terrible, however they contain the wonderful promise of a child coming. Election pains are terrible, but they contain the wonderful promise of a new world coming.
Jesus Christ made reference to the travail of Christians while they await Delivery by the Deliverer: "A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you." (John 16:21-22 KJV).
The Bible tells us the dollar will die, homosexuality will prevail and democracy will disappear. President Obama has contributed to all of these during his first 4 years. These are the pains of travail. However, the birth of a new world is coming at the return of Jesus Christ.
Remember, travail is terribly painful, but it is worth it.
