“They are bewildered by the land; the wilderness has closed them in.” [Exodus 14:3]

We live in a land of the ‘downward spiral’.  Rather than influencing the world, the world is pressing in hard to influence the people of God.   These days of darkening clouds are actually not about the world.  The world has always been ruled by darkness and always will be until the Son of Righteousness returns.  What God is looking at very intently is His family – those that call themselves ‘Christians’.

We have the greatest opportunity man has ever known to become vessels of power and authority.  It is for such a time as this we have been chosen.  Don’t straddle the fence, you and those that look to you will all die in the wilderness.    It is for freedom Christ has set us free; don’t allow the world or good sounding words bewilder you.  Time is running out, God’s people are in the cross-hairs of choice.   God’s Word is eternal and shall never change no matter how hard man tries to blur the edges.

Don’t forget behind the story line God is in control of the darkness.  He purchased that privilege with His life on Calvary.   Ours is the privilege to do as the Israelites did, “the children of Israel went out with boldness”.   As God’s chosen vessels we need to act in accordance with who God has made us to be.

Find a group, a church, a fellowship that is following hard after Jesus Christ and God will open the windows of heaven for you to be the light that the darkness of this world needs.
