Watchfulness

Every Eye Shall SeeLast week we looked at the overarching theme of deception: that we should be very careful and not be deceived by a “false prophet, false Christs, or a false messiah.” Today I want to look at the next major theme of Matthew 24 which is watchfulness. Again we discern this major theme because our Lord repeated it three times using three separate illustrations to stress its importance and if that were not enough it was followed up with a parable about the ten virgins in the next chapter. In the first illustration it indicates that the world will be happily busy or involved in the pleasantries’ of life eating, drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage when suddenly without any warning people will be swept away in the same way as those who lived during the great flood. Sudden planetary events are more widely accepted as we fast approach the end of days. As tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, and volcanoes increase in numbers and severity around the globe the possibility of a global catastrophe is even more certain yet less predictable. In recent months we have witnessed an increase in asteroids flying ever closer to the planet with almost no warning.

Superstorm

Have we become more globally connected and the reporting just gotten better or is there an increase in natural disasters afflicting our planet? If the answer is yes, then what should be our response? What stands out is the multitude of major earthquakes felt around the world and in some events only moments apart. Then there are the massive storms (superstorms) the kind headed for the East coast of America requiring a new alert language, “mass devastation,” “unsurvivable,” “catastrophic,” and a 24 hour warning system aimed at getting more people to take heed. I have lost count of the number of active volcanoes around the world that all seem to be preparing for one massive event. If that were not enough there are the immense flooding, droughts, forest fires, and unexplained shaking with loud noises heard around the globe. Yet with all this we still have unbelievers proclaiming all is the same, nothing has changed! Yet, I’m convinced that things have changed and they are only going to get worse. So what should be our response? Continue reading Superstorm
