Ceaseless rumblings

“God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭46:1-3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Ceaseless rumblings

There is much to be concerned about when one turns on the news. There is much to be concerned about when one goes shopping for food, or other basic needs, or even setting about paying the bills. There seems to be ceaseless rumblings, growing in magnitude, as we sense that something big and horrible is approaching. Those in power are trying to dissuade our concerns, but our experiences cannot be explained away.

In these times, I try and imagine what life would be like without God, facing these rumblings. I know that I would be in one of two extremes: either I would be in denial, actively ignoring all that I see and hear, or I would be completely hopeless, fearing the coming of each successive day.

I needed Psalm forty six this morning. There are forces and alliances being formed that will set the stage for the tumultuous times to come. All of the players are stepping into position, and all that is needed is the spark. There is some thought that Speaker Pelosi will stop in Taiwan this week. There have been warnings from the Chinese that they will take action.

I made the mistake of watching a documentary on Xi Xinping. The part where he is organizing his own new “new world order” shook me to the core. What he is organizing is direct assault on the old “new world order”, the Harlot of old. The groundwork for the destruction of the Harlot is being laid.

““The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’”
Revelation 18:9-10 NKJV

I am thankful that God is our refuge and strength, the He is a very present help in trouble. Because of God, I have no fear. Because of Jesus, I have twenty four/seven access to the Father. I have the Holy Spirit in me to guide me and remind me that I am not alone.

The great city of Babylon, the system now running this world and born Babel, will be destroyed. I am thankful that there is another city coming, one where the glory of God will provide the light and those who inhabit her will be glad.

“There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn. The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah”
Psalms 46:4-7 NKJV

Brothers and sisters, there is much to come on this journey, and I can tell you the truth that the rumblings are about to become far more intense and all the more ceaseless. But we have a great Salvation in Jesus and a destiny with Him.

These times caused me to look ahead to eternity, and to look back to the past to consider the goodness of the Lord and all the faithfulness He has demonstrated in my life. I know that He is a very present help because He always has been.

As we feel the rumblings, let us reflect on the Lord and all that He has done for us, let us also read His word and reminded of the great things He has done. And rejoice as wait expectantly for what He will do. Some day all the rumblings will cease and the Lord will reign.

“Come, behold the works of the Lord, Who has made desolations in the earth. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah”
Psalms 46:8-11 NKJV

Have a Blessed Lord’s Day!
