Yes indeed, that is a great principle! It is taught in Scripture in many places.

So if you are not trying to predict the future, what did you mean when you spoke of the "unfolding of events" and the "days that are fast coming upon us?" That sounds like predicting the future to me. Did I misunderstand your words? Here is an example of what I mean (from your Preparing for the days ahead thread).
I completely realize that some folks here don't see the times we're going into as tribulation. That's okay but I'd like to give you these scriptures to consider. Richard
More than that, I'd like to make them available to those that are of that mindset. The question is what we individually (and as heads of families) should consider as a matter of faith. Out of fear, Noah prepared an Ark. I'm not suggesting that anyone should respond out of human fear, but out of fear and trembling for His Living Word for these days that are fast coming upon us.
