All Quiet On the Western Front?
Seemingly, all is quiet on the Western Front…
North Korea claims to have “powerful modern weapons” capable of defeating the United States, a top military chief claims. As well, the nation has almost completed preparations for a third nuclear test, a senior source with close ties to Pyongyang and Beijing said.
Meanwhile, back in the States, we’re consumed with all manner of celebrity doings and a coming Presidential election; but is this in and of itself really news?
In this third week of April of 2012, America is blessed to be living in a bubble; but eventually all bubbles will burst.
Indeed, all seems quiet on the Western Front, but we must continue to diligently keep watch as the wall. Some are called to watch, to lead, and to warn, and perhaps you have heard such a calling? Be prepared for the blow-back from mockers and scoffers who today are enjoying the false security of the bubble. Those mockers and scoffers will be vicious, indignant, and profane – and their legions seem innumerable.
Don’t become pacified by the quiet on the Western Front, as it is only a temporary break in the storm. Use the quiet time to pray that Jesus will refresh you and restore you and know that He can and will.
Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.” – 2 Peter 3:3-4
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid? - Psalm 27:1
I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: you that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, – Isaiah 62:6
