A Perfect Storm – Final Warning or Final Judgment

In our haste to examine the pandemic that sweeps the globe, we have forgotten that we live in the last chapter of history. So, maybe we should think a little more deeply about why this is happening at this moment in time.

Why has this virus arisen at such a vulnerable time?

Why are people and politicians reacting with such insanity?

Why have we forgotten that evil NEVER goes unpunished?

I sense the Hand of God in all of this, but I understand if you don’t agree. However, it is undeniable that there is something unique going on.

We Forgot that God is JUST

One of the most pernicious movements to sweep the church is this idea that God is a kindly old man who wouldn’t hurt a fly and is willing and ready to overlook any and all sin. Along with it came an easy-believism and permission to ‘follow your heart’.

Truth was optional, and the Old Testament didn’t reflect God, anymore.

What we forgot in the process was that God doesn’t change. Ever. We forgot that the sins that made Him angry four thousand years ago, make Him angry today.

We forgot that God is JUST.

2019 – The Difficult Year

At the beginning of January, it is a tradition to try and forecast the events of the coming year. And, I’ve tried to do that, every year, with limited success. Timing is not my strength, as I have demonstrated over the past few years. Having said that, there aren’t many who have done any better. So, I’m in good company.

However, there is one thing that I can predict with a great deal of confidence:

2019 will be difficult.

My fear is that this will be a great understatement. I certainly hope that it will be smooth sailing with perfect sunsets and fields of green. But, don’t bet on it.

Fear God

With the unusual events of this past week and an impromptu family reunion in central Taiwan, I find myself on a different topic than what I wanted to talk about.

However, it is so much more important than the destruction of our civilization that it’s like the difference between night and day. And, I find that our churches have destroyed themselves because they do not do the one thing that would keep them safe:

Fear God.

We serve God and follow God, because we love Him. But, we keep ourselves pure and holy because we fear Him.

And yes, we need both.

In the Footsteps of Jeremiah

Poor Jeremiah was a righteous man who did his very best to warn the people of God, to repent and escape the wrath that God was going to pour out upon Judah. Some listened and saved themselves, but most did not. And, Jeremiah had to watch the rebels among God’s people destroy themselves and everyone around them.

For those who are giving warning to the Body of Christ, to repent and escape the wrath of God, you are walking in the footsteps of Jeremiah. Some of our brothers and sisters will repent and escape. Most will not.
