The terrorism that once plagued other nations took on new meaning as America's own borders were infiltrated in a profound way in 2001 by the terror attacks on New York and Washington. Shooting rampages at schools and college campuses have sent shockwaves of fear and panic through our nation like never before. Today the word terror has become a buzzword in America and a source of anxiety among many. Regardless of the method of wickedness, it has robbed innocence and stirred up vulnerability as people wonder, What's next?

While some people have faced personal crises, our world is experiencing the shaking of natural disasters which are the signs of the last days in which we live. There has been an increase of shaking and tremors in the earth as mighty earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, volcanoes, floods, and tornadoes have claimed thousands of lives, injured countless others, and left people homeless or displaced. The effect of sin upon the earth has been devastating. It seems that the appearing of our Lord and Savior could happen at any possible moment.

How can we have no fear of terror in times like these? Is it truly possible? The shaking will not end soon, for Hebrews 12:25-29 tells us:
See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him [jesus] who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him [Jesus] who speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, "Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven."

Now this, "Yet once more," indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.
I want to encourage you to do everything you can to draw near to the Lord in these days—in your personal life, in your walk with the Lord, in Bible reading, in prayer time, and in church attendance. Reading of the Word of God is powerful, and I challenge you to read it out loud. Read large portions of it at a time. As you read, I want to encourage you to pray in the early morning, throughout the day, and in the evening. I especially challenge you to establish a time of family prayer, where you can unite and read the Word of God, pray, testify, and share together.

The message of "no fear" is not just for you, but it is also for your children and grandchildren. Isaiah 54:13-14 says,
All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you.
It's time to get rid of nightmares, fear, and anxiety in our homes and in our land. The principles in this book can set you free from the power of fear to control and manipulate you in your future. If the Lord tarries, we have a job to do unlike any in history. As the world reels in chaos and confusion, we do not have to succumb to the rising fears and worry in the land. We can rise up, take our places of leadership, and finish the course that Jesus began.
