Derek Prince – Bible Teacher
Now, if you turn to this, we’re going to say it, more or less, from the New King James. You’ll find it’s addressed to people. It says, what does it say? Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God. But we make it personal. And so we say, we humble ourselves. You understand, it’s our way of saying, we believe the Word, we take it seriously, we apply it to our lives. So God helping us, and I feel the need of help at this moment, we’ll say it.
Therefore we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt us in due time. Having cast all our care. I think we’d better start again. My problem is, I’ve known all these scriptures in the Old King James Version and sometimes the two compete. Alright.
1 Peter 5:6-11: Therefore we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt us in due time, having cast all our care upon Him, for He cares for us. We are sober, we are vigilant, because our adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. We resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by our brotherhood in the world. But the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after we have suffered a while, will perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle us. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Thank you. Now in these evening meetings we’ve been dealing with the theme of the end time or the last days. And we’re going to continue with that.
Last night I took the words of the greatest of all the Hebrew prophets. The Hebrew people have produced a wonderful line of prophets, but there’s one who towers above them all, and His name is Jesus. And we examined what I believe to be the greatest of all His prophetic discourses, which He gave from the Mount of Olives just before He suffered. It’s recorded in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21.
Tonight I want to move on from there, and I want by the help of the Lord to give you a kind of general picture of what the condition of the world will be like in the last time. And this I believe is something that concerns all of us. We need to understand the kind of situation in which we are living, because it is not an easy situation, and it is not going to get any easier. In fact, it’s going to get a lot tougher. So we need to be prepared.
LIGHT AND DARKNESS SIDE BY SIDE
The first thing that we need to bear in mind is that there’s more than one side to the situation in the world in these last days. There’s a bright side and a dark side. There is wonderful good and terrible evil, and they are coexisting side by side in the world today. And we have to consider both, because otherwise we’ll give people a very one-sided impression of the condition of the world and the situation that confronts us. We can speak only about the good and give people an unrealistic sense of optimism which will be shattered when they encounter reality. Or we can speak only about the evil and leave people with a sense of hopelessness.
I remember years ago I was teaching on the need to pray for our government, and a dear lady came up to me at the end and said, ‘Brother Prince, doesn’t the Bible teach that all things are going to get worse and worse?’
So I said, ‘No, I believe it teaches some things are going to get worse and worse, and some things are going to get better and better. And I’m one of the things that’s going to get better.’ So that’s the attitude that I want to impart to you.
