This is what God gave me today in his word:
Be broken, you peoples, and be shattered; give ear, all you far countries; strap on your armor and be shattered; strap on your armor and be shattered. Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing; speak a word, but it will not stand, for God is with us. (Isa 8:9-10)
As you most likely know, a tsunami has very recently hit Japan… The Gospel is spreading there.
As you most likely know, an earthquake hit Hati, and Hati is now in ruins… The Gospel is spreading there.
in 9/11 the World Trade Center was destroyed… People began to flood into churches.
I don’t know about you, but I seem to see a bit of a pattern here… I think that God is using the terrorists to attack the USA and “shake” them… It always happens, name any major disaster, the great depression, the earthquake, the tsunami in Japan… The gospel has spread in every one of those situations! …
No matter how much people may “resent” it, I believe the Gospel will begin to spread in America:
“Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing; speak a word, but it will not stand, for God is with us.”
No matter how many people may try to stop God from shaking the USA, no matter how many people “take counsel” and try to stop it, it will happen… But God is with us, so there really isn’t anything to be afraid of :-):
“He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.”
I’m not sure about you, but at the moment, I am glad I’m a Christian :-)… Please remember, God loves you too! Sometimes, like in the war that going on now, it seems like he’s gone… And that’s true, he’s gone from America as far as I can see, but he’s still with you, in you, and with you.
You are loved!
