What has the Lord revealed to you about all the tornadoes, flooding, earthquakes and shaking? Nothing? You say you never even asked Him? Hmm. That’s interesting. It’s the first thing I did when I watched all the news coverage in Texas and Oklahoma. I have family scattered all over Texas and my prayers are constantly going up. Yes, every spring Texas and Oklahoma (and other states as well) have tornadoes, hailstorms and so on. But, ask anyone who lives there if this is a typical spring deluge and you will hear them lament that it is definitely not the norm.
Seismologists are reporting an incredibly high instance of earthquakes all across the USA. Some are very light and they range all the way to pretty stout. Even volcanoes are waking from their dormant state. And, in the midst of all this chaos, what are people doing? Are they getting on their knees before God to ask for His mercy? Are they repenting of their sins and asking Him to draw near and instruct them for the day’s safety and provision? Unfortunately, I haven’t seen that. I feel sure that there are those who are doing just that, but most of what I see on facebook, twitter, etc., is people pretending nothing is changing and going on about their shopping, vacation planning and recreation without a thought for tomorrow. Or…mocking those who are hearing from God and preparing for more to come.
Dear people, please stop mocking, ignoring and pretending that everything will always be status quo. It will not. God’s judgments on our world are now beginning to fall. He has removed some of His protections where people have spit in His face and there will be consequences. You can ignore or even try to fight with God all day, but after all is said and done, He is God. He is in control. He loves us so much that He doesn’t want any to perish, but if some choose to perish, He will allow them that right. It is heartbreaking to watch people who have no understanding of who the real God is, or how He operates, make fools of themselves with their misguided opinions. There will be a price to pay.
Don’t call me a hater. I love you and that’s why I long to see you turn your eyes upon Jesus. When the tornado hits your home or you lose your loved one in a flood or earthquake, where will you turn? You can get angry at God, but when did you surrender your life to Him and follow His leading? No matter what the storm brings, we can rest in the arms of our God. He brings peace, encouragement and comfort that no human flesh can do. It’s a divine, supernatural work of the Lord that no mortal can replicate. Please stop and talk to Him now. He is ready and willing to minister to you in disasters, but if you don’t know how to hear His voice or if you don’t know how to turn to Him, you will be lost and broken.
My prayers continue. Our Father is waiting patiently for hearts to turn to Him. His mercy and grace are amazing. But…as the Bible teaches us, there will be a time of judgment for ignoring Him, and it is upon us now. Please stop and pray and think and be wise. Your entire eternity depends on it.
