The TERROR of the STORM ~ a Word from The LORD ~ 2 Thessalonians 2: 5-12
THE TERROR OF THE STORM
The wind howled. The trees bent and branches whipped wildly. The unmerciful rain poured in pounding sheets on houses, plants, cars... people. Hail started falling, growing larger as it fell. No-one was safe. Windows were popping in cars and vehicles, then buildings and homes.
The police and "first-responders" were helpless to stop the raging weather. They could rescue no-one. Emergencies were happening. Radios and phones were jammed, those that were working. A terrible panic ensued.
In the cities, people were trapped. Their buildings were not safe and it was impossible to flee by vehicle in the storm. All they could do was watch ... and pray. They huddled together, helpless to ward off the storm tide. It was bearing down upon them, their families, the children.
There were no storm-chasers.
This storm was chasing THEM.
Some called it the wrath of GOD. A few knew they deserved it. Some blasphemed and cursed GOD in the storm... cursed GOD, the only ONE Who could help them.
Why didn't HE help them?
Maybe HE did not like the curses??
Maybe HE knew once the storm was lifted, they would not think about HIM seriously until the next storm. Maybe HE knew they would not be changed... once the storm had lifted.
They would be proud and arrogant and hard , as before, congratulating themselves on how tough and strong they were to weather such a storm. Their own "toughness" got them through, after all.
Why should HE answer their cries for help ? Since they refused to acknowledge HIS almighty power when it was calm, why should HE deign to help them through the crisis? Undoubtedly, they would not acknowledge HIS almighty power when the storm ended.
Relentlessly, the raging storm continues as the “sons of belial” shake their fists in GOD'S face for "hindering" their lives ... the very lives which sprang from GOD, and were going back very soon to stand before HIM, at the Great Judgment of all the dead who rejected GOD'S offer of Love and Mercy.
Soon, too soon for their comfort, they will be standing before the Judge of the Whole Earth. This Judge+ of the Whole Earth will most assuredly DO RIGHT... just like HE did in ancient times in the five cities of Sodom and Gomorrah's region.
There is a COMING STORM, RAGING. Raging its way across the face of civilization... the Western-most Civilization is included this time.
There is NO ESCAPING this storm; it is the fire-storm promised by GOD. Only HE is powerful enough to stop it. HE wills not to do that. HE is going to allow this high-tech society to reap what it has sown. Full-time. For decades, at the least, but being birthed hundreds of years ago. The harvest of evil is coming to maturity.
The demons who have been nurtured and promoted by the highest "civilization" on earth are soon to be given more authority than the authorities bargained for. More authority than the basest of people --- both high-born and lowly --- ever thought possible when they flaunted their evil in the eyes of GOD.
How many babies have been slain, chopped apart for sorcery and to hide their mother-and-father's sin ? About 60 million ? [ Numbers may be a bit off due to errors in the official records, but the Judge of the Whole Earth has a most accurate accounting system ... and HE does not miss one little scream from the Little Ones being slain in the womb. ]
"As your ears have been deaf to the cries of these Little Ones, so MY+ Ears are deaf to your cries in the STORM," saith The LORD.
"As your heart has hardened itself against calling evil "EVIL," so MY Heart will be hardened TO THE SAME DEGREE when the STORM erupts against you," saith The LORD.
There is nothing secret that will remain hidden. The sweeping STORM will reveal it all.
You care only about your own life and how much pleasure you can extract from it. Self rules. Self is led by demons.
So... the rule of demons --- undisguised --- will be your portion. You will see how much "pleasure" the demons will give your flesh. You will call for Death, but Death will not answer you.
You trample my People by every method you can use, so now it is your turn. Only this time, I will use the methods I CAN USE... and there is no escape.
2 Thessalonians 2:5 -12 warns us:
[ ESV ]
You cannot but remember that I told you this while I was still with you; you must now be aware of the Restraining Hand which ensures that he [ the wicked one ] shall be revealed only at the proper time.
For already the secret power of wickedness is at work, secret only for the present until the Restrainer disappears from the scene. And then he will be revealed, that wicked man whom the LORD JESUS will destroy with the breath of his mouth, and annihilated by the radiance of his coming.
is after the working of satan
with all power
and signs and lying wonders,
And with all deceivableness
in them that perish;
because they received not
the love of the truth,
that they might be saved.
And for this cause
GOD shall send them strong delusion,
that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned
who believed not the truth,
but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Romans 8: 13-14
For if ye live after the flesh,
ye shall die:
but if ye through the SPIRIT
do mortify ( put to death )
the deeds of the body,
ye shall live.
For as many as are led
by the SPIRIT of GOD,
they are the sons of GOD.
