I cannot sleep. There is a thick and present darkness that is hovering the world. This heavy oppression that has tightened it’s grips on everyone I know has been magnified over the past few years. It’s intense and unrelenting and you feel it wherever you go.
People are angry and volatile. They are guarded and hostile. The magnitude of division and hate are at boiling levels. We are steamrolling in a direction of no return.
He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts. These are the days. These are the end days. And there is an uncanny and frightening resemblance to the days of Noah. God warned us about these days. And while it is exciting, we need to take heed and be on guard.
People are flocking to deranged ideologies. It’s as if common sense and rationale don’t exist. They are doing whatever is right in their own eyes and will not tolerate contrary thinking. Up is down, black is white, right is wrong and all logical thinking is thrown into question.
We are re-educating the world with untruths so delusional it hard to believe the masses that follow. We have now entered the twilight zone and there is no return.
The enemy no longer subtly pops in and out. He no longer lays dormant waiting for opportunity to strike. He’s in full frontal attack and nobody is immune from his wicked and evil tentacles. As the great divide widens, he is positioning himself for his latest moves. And this should terrify us straight to the arms of Jesus, our only protection.
Such serious and intense times. It’s a battle, a war, and it is not to be taken lightly. We were told, he seeks to devour; to kill, steal and destroy. We need to be on guard with unrelenting grit. Sword in hand and postured in prayer, our only defense.
There is a separation happening, a falling away. And, like everything else, we were told this would happen. We need to gird our loins, protect ourselves and fight this spiritual enemy because he won’t go away.
We are distracted. Shouldn’t we be off milk by now? Aren’t we supposed to spur one another on? We don’t have time for pettiness. We don’t have time to let our hurt and emotions dictate in a way that divides, and separates. We can’t hold so tightly to our feelings that it becomes toxic and destructive. These are distractions. Hurt, frustration, anger are distractions we allow the enemy to use to keep us from what is important. Distractions keeping us from being about the Father’s business. And there’s lots of business that needs attention.
Don’t be divisive. Don’t be destructive. Guard your tongue. We are called to be that city on a hill. Don’t allow your light to diminish. The war is raging. There’s work to be done. Fight the good fight. The race isn’t over.
