There is a trend developing in alternative media and online forums, with certain “influencers” claiming that they’re finally fed up with the restrictions and aren’t going to take it anymore. What they’re trying to do with their public show of frustration is to rally the troops, with the ultimate aim of getting a large-scale organized resistance movement going.
As a born-again believer, you need to be very careful about becoming involved in any kind of resistance movement other than the one you were grandfathered into when you were born-again. I’m not going to get into a discussion here about whether or not I believe some of these influencers may or may not be controlled opposition. I’m only interested in what they’re trying to do, which is to tempt their audience to show their hand (that is, to identify themselves) and to react openly and violently against the ptb, first with words and then with actions.
Now is not the time for heroics. I had a vision a few days ago of an avalanche moving down a mountainside in slow-motion. The avalanche was moving slowly, but it was massive and unstoppable. As it inched down the mountain, it swallowed everything in its path, including people who were standing in front of it shaking their fists.
Off to the side of the mountain, just out of reach of the avalanche, a few people were standing and watching. They weren’t doing anything, these people, other than for watching the avalanche descend. They weren’t shaking their fists or trying to stop it; they were just standing and watching.
The avalanche is coming, whether we want it to or not. No-one can stop it. It has been put into motion, and no-one can stop it, any more than the flood could be stopped in Noah’s day or the rain of fire and brimstone could be stopped in Lot’s. There is no praying or fasting this avalanche away. This is not a Nineveh event, where everything will go back to normal if everyone would just repent in sackcloth and ashes. This avalanche cannot and will not be stopped.
Knowing that, if you choose to stand in front of it shaking your fists, thinking you’re somehow a hero to do so, you’ll get swallowed up by it, just like everyone else in its path.
We need to be like the people in the vision who were standing off to the side as the avalanche descended. We need to be aware of what’s going on, but not to be part of it. We need to let it happen, like Noah let the flood happen and Lot let the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah happen. This is entirely in God’s hands. We need to get out of the way and let God take care of business.
The time for spiritual heroism will come, but it isn’t now.
If you step out now, you’ll join the ranks of Barabbas and Judas Iscariot, who also believed they were fighting the ptb and were heroes.
Me, I’ll continue to stand with Jesus, off to the side of the mountain, and let God’s will be done.
