Again, when Mount Vesuvius back in the latter part of the first century it exploded with lava streaming down the mountainside burying the town with it's contents AND with it's people. In that day and in their minds, the end of the world had come, and it did. In 1896, Japan suffered an earthquake and tsunami that killed 26,000 people, their world ended, but the earth continued. Katrina with horrifying devastation destroyed a whole section, their world had come to an end, but the sea roared and drew back it's deadly force and the earth continued and people shake themselves and rebuild.
It's awful when we are moved out of our comfort zone, when our world is turned upside down. The wind of the Lord blows everything that we have built down to rubble in just a few minutes, like snapping a match stick. But that doesn't mean it's the end of the earth's existence, it just means that our world has been destroyed.
At one time, there was nothing but trees in these areas and those winds would have blown and tore the earth up and left devastation in it's wake. There was no news coverage, no one to document the damage, but it happened and the earth continued it's orbit and seasons passed and God would bless His creation again and again.
We are in a season where the world is ripe to receive the word of God, it's troubled on every side. It's looking for hope and finding nothing. It has reached out to us but is laughing at us because we are no different than they.
The Churches are closing it's doors and the body of Christ is going underground where God is restoring the souls that He has charged with His power and anointing to do exploits in the name of Jesus. We are truly in a season of hope for the body of Christ, the intensity of the drastic weather changes are hints to us that God is doing something in the spiritual realm. We are not to look at the intensity of these events but looking unto Jesus who is the author and the finisher of our faith. We must stay focused on Him and only see what is happening around as a foot note only, not taking our eyes off the real purpose as to why Christ has apprehended us for this time and this season.
Many see the wrath of God being poured out, lets not look for this dear saints, lets instead look to our Lord as the merciful God that can save lives and to which God came in the likeness of sinful flesh because He sooooooo loved the world.
You'll know that your growing in more likeness of the Father when you'll stand in the gap and make up the hedge and seek to save and not to condemn, not even to whisper a thought of judgment but reserving judgment to the Son.
Judgment always comes and many nations have been judged since Christ sat down at the right hand of power. Nations have been judged and put down and others have been lifted up. It is my prayer that the United States of America sees the error of it's ways and turns back to God, so that it can truly say with a repentant heart, God Bless America! But I think it's going to take a lot of harassment from the Lord for her to begin to say, "something is wrong, we've departed from the Lord".
