Christ is the strength of Israel. Psalms says the following about him "the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people." (Psalms 68:35).
In Joel we read that before the second coming, the Lord's voice will roar from Jerusalem, and the earth will quake, "but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel." (Joel 3:16)
In the doctrine and covenants, we are told the same thing, that even though the judgements of God will come upon the earth, that "my people shall be redeemed and shall reign with me on the earth." (D&C 43:29)
What peace these scriptures give us. Even though the world is in turmoil, the Lord will redeem his people before and during the second coming. It helps us to have faith in the future.
May we ever follow the Lord, and trust in him, he who is the strength of Israel.
May we ever make Christ our Rock, for he is our salvation.
