Bible Verses About Dark Times (KJV)

Joshua 2:22
Photo by mohamed_hassan

There were 3 days of darkness after Jesus died. This was a time of great sorrow for his followers. Some people say that this was also a time of great miracles. Jesus appeared to many people during those 3 days, and he gave them messages of hope and comfort.

On the third day, Jesus rose from the dead. He appeared to his disciples and many other people. He showed them that he was alive, and he talked with them about God’s kingdom. Afterward, Jesus ascended into heaven.

During the 3 days of darkness, God’s people were grieving. But they also experienced hope and comfort because they knew that Jesus was alive. And they had the promise of eternal life with him.

No matter how dark things seem, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. The Bible tells us that God is the light that shines in the darkness, and that he will never leave us or forsake us. So when we feel like we’re in the midst of a dark time, we can rest assured that God is with us and will see us through to the other side. Just as Jesus was resurrected after three days in the tomb, we can have hope that our dark times will eventually give way to new life. Because of God’s unfailing love for us, we can be confident that He will bring us through whatever challenges we face.

God always had a plan for humanity. He wanted us to be happy and have a good life. But, we sinned and fell short of His glory. As a result, we experience darkness and tragedy in this life. But God still loves us. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins so that we could be forgiven and have eternal life.

No one knows when the end of the world will come, but we can be sure that it will be a time of great darkness. The Bible tells us that there will be wars, famines, plagues, and natural disasters. People will be fearful and desperate. But we don’t need to be afraid. We know that Jesus is coming back to take us to be with Him forever. And we know that God will ultimately triumph over all evil.

So, as we experience the dark times in this world, let us remember that our hope is in Jesus Christ. He is the Light of the world, and He will lead us through the darkness into eternal life.
