WHAT TO DO THROUGH ’22?
For genuine Christians exactly what to do in these strange days – is something we seek an answer to, regardless of what age category we fit into.
We are all faced with some undeniable facts (unless you are an atheist):
Wars and rumours of wars, pestilences, earthquakes in diverse places, evil men growing worse and worse, and all that Israel’s return to their homeland signifies, as we keep tabs on their ongoing history. (Matt. 24. II Timothy 3)
We brace ourselves for what is ahead, but from time to time drift into thinking what is happening on the earth is simply surreal.
And if you are like myself you have not totally landed on an eschatological position. I think there are six choices now, regarding ‘a position’ on the timescale, and order of events regarding the rapture and the tribulation etc., (six – but I might be mistaken?).
The powers of darkness have been invited by mankind through sin and unbelief – to achieve further entrenchment in the human psyche.
A satanic fog thickens on the brains of a wayward world.
Lies become perceived truth, and truth is dismissed by the mentally blind who cannot see. (II Corinthians 4/4)
Despite all that is happening on the planet – sound doctrine is still sound doctrine.
The scriptures cannot be broken. The word of God shall never pass away. It is the bread of spiritual life. It is the only pure thing in a fallen world.
We the elect, must hold it in our hearts like never before. There is nothing else. And in the midst of the chaos – ‘if God be for us who can be against us…?’
God is building His church and we echo the words of Elisha
2 Kings 6:17
17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
Eyes opened – to see the mighty army of God in the heavenly places, standing to attention at the behest of The Captain of our salvation. Ready to do His bidding as the fulfilment of prophesy unfolds.
God watches the battle for men’s souls – but we read, and are encouraged for now and the future, to take heed to this wonderful Word of God, that has contextual application but more than that – is ‘spirit and life’ – for those who will embrace it.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
3 The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.
We often hear the term used in the USA: ‘fellow Americans’. Well ‘fellow gentiles’ let me call you out of darkness into God’s glorious light.
Seek God while He may be found. All He needs is for you to have a needy soul, and He will respond to your cry.
God is not extinguished by the darkness – He extinguishes the darkness with His Light.
Non-Christian come to the light – Christian come for more light.
…the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
