The believers will certainly survive the last days when they can neither buy nor sell. Jesus said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” ( John 16:33). God does not want us to live by fear, but rather by faith “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love” (1 John 4:18).
During the last days, God will supply the greatest peace and faith. We need only to remember that Jesus is in the boat with us. Though the furnace be heated seven times over, we can pass safely and survive through it if Jesus is at our side. How did the children of Israel in Egypt survive when the plagues fell? God took care of them miraculously during the plagues. Likewise, He will care for His end time church.
The ninety-first Psalm contains special promises for those living during the last days. It says, “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked” (Psalm 91:5-8, NKJV). The Psalmist makes it clear we will be in the midst of the world during the plagues yet remain untouched. If God is our refuge “No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling” (Psalm 91:10, NKJV).
God promised that He will provide for His children at the last days “He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure” (Isaiah 33:16). The promise here given will prove of special comfort to God’s people during the great crisis of the last days, when places of safety will be provided for them out of reach of those bent on their destruction (Ps. 61:2, 3; 91:1, 2). While the wicked suffer for lack of food and water (Rev. 16:4–9) the saints will have life’s necessities provided them and they will survive during the last days.
