Living in a Snow Globe
March 1, 2021
Have you ever shaken a snow globe? One moment the world inside the globe is picture-perfect. The next, everything is a swirling mess of glitter and confusion until it all settles down again.
Have you ever imagined living INSIDE a snow globe? Well, you are.
Our world is in the hands of forces much greater than ourselves. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, and already many people don’t know what is up or down, right or left. It seems like some sinister personality is playing shadow tricks with us. Almost everything we thought was reality is proving to be a shadow, only to be replaced by the next false reality.
It is in times like these, and much worse to come, that Jesus said men’s hearts would fail. A boat that is not anchored will flounder in a storm. If you are not anchored on the Truth, you will also flounder.
The enemy of your soul does not care much which of his puppets rule the political stage. What he is after is your deception. Like the serpent that he is, he has a deadly intrigue in keeping you enamored and captivated with his own seductive and deadly moves. Politics and religion are the oldest tricks in his book.
Snap out of it! Awake, sleeper, and Christ will give you light! The Kingdom of God is here, and our salvation is much closer than when we first believed. Do not let the times draw your heart away from the soon-coming Bridegroom.
The Truth is a person: Jesus. Love Him. Worship Him in Spirit and in truth, for the Father seeks such. Follow Him. Listen to His voice. Obey Him. Our faith was built for such a time as this. The church of God is the pillar and ground of the Truth, and as all other truth is shaken, ours is greater than ever.
During this time, it has been hard for me (and many other believers that I see struggling with the same) to not be unreasonably consumed with going after all the “inside information” that is out there clamoring for attention. For all of the hype, I do not feel much informed or in any advantage.
We have an inside Informant, and we need to be listening to Him. Each of us have the witness of God within us, an ever-present Unction from the Holy One, leading us into all truth and planting our feet on solid ground. Let us heed Him, and nothing less. Listen for His quiet voice, for it remains persistent through the shaking.
“See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.”
