A Word from David
I predict that 2016 will continue the trend of the past 2,000 years, bringing with it a combination of increasing darkness and light. Concerning the darkness, like all generations of believers who have lived before us, we wonder how much darker it might get. Yet all the while, the tiny mustard seed that was planted 2,000 years ago—which became a small mustard tree—silently keeps growing larger (see Matt. 13:31-32). One day it will be the biggest tree in the garden!
Jesus did warn that “night is coming when no one can work” (John 9:4b). So we, like Him, must “work the works of Him who sent us as long as it is day” (John 9:4a). And that is just what we’ll be doing at Heaven’s Family in 2016. Our mission is to build Jesus’ kingdom on earth, certain that one day, His will be the only kingdom.
As the darkness increases in 2016, let us advance with God’s light! — David
