This is not meant to strike fear in the Christian's heart. This is meant to show that in order for us to be brought home, we need to be in complete devastation as a universe. Each person must have the chance to experience God, and we must fight through the battles of the world for the one most high!
When they say...Peace and Safety!! For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.(1 Thessalonians 5:9-10)
