Faith and Obedience in Desperate Times

Desperate times are at our doorstep. For some, they are already here. The question on our minds is…

…What do we do when danger threatens us, our family and our neighbors?

Well, I can tell you that nothing tests your faith and obedience like a desperate situation. You might THINK that you know how  you will react, but you won’t KNOW until it happens.

Will you keep your faith and obey God, when everything falls apart?

If you don’t know the answer to that, now is the time to make sure.

The Balfour Declaration – 100 Years

Thursday marked the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. It laid the groundwork for the completely legal distribution of land rights to the Jews, as the foul and evil Ottoman Empire was being dismembered. And, make no mistake, the Ottoman Empire was truly corrupt and Satanic.

(Remember the Armenian Genocide?)

It was also a moment in time that marked the spread of the idea of the Nation State. The monarchies were dying. The ‘divine right of kings’ was losing recognition. And, it was the high water mark for Christianity in Europe and North America. After that, it was downhill.

Never forget that the founding of the State of Israel and her success has been entirely due to the Christians.

Before the Storm

After last week’s article, Hurricane Irma blundered through Florida and Georgia. Then, Typhoon Talim set its sights on my apartment building. However, Talim veered off to the North and didn’t do much more than rain on us, here in Taipei. But, Irma left a gigantic swath of destruction in her wake.

Half of Florida might be without power for weeks. People have been displaced. Lives and jobs disrupted and even ruined. And the loss of lives…

That was a terrible hurricane, and Florida hasn’t had one of those in a long time. But, I have an interesting observation, from all the typhoons that my wife and I have been through…

…did you notice how quiet and normal everything was, the day before?

Gideon in the Last Days

The Bible offers up quite a few examples of people who faced some of the same challenges that we will soon face, as these Last Days accelerate. Men and women throughout the Bible were tested in their resolve to believe God and obey Him. And, the Bible records these successes – in enough detail to draw strength from their example.

One of those examples is Gideon (pronounced in Hebrew: GEED-ohn). He was a nobody, with faith in God. That made him a ‘somebody’ in God’s eyes, an enough of a ‘somebody’ to be used by God to demonstrate the power of God.

My hope is that we will take these examples to heart, as we gaze into a terrifying future.

That Hairy Buffalo

People need to wake up, and I don’t know what it will take for them to do that. But, I believe that he first step is to stop doing the thing that is putting you to sleep.

We talk about drinking the Kool-Aid. That was a reference to the Jonestown Massacre – where followers of Jim Jones drank cyanide-laced Kool-Aid. But, there’s more than just poisoned Kool-Aid.

Lots of Christians are sitting around the punch bowl, not realizing the potency of what they are drinking. And, what’s in that bowl is designed to keep you from realizing just how intoxicating it is.

Just like a Hairy Buffalo.
