If the Foundations Shake…

“For look! The wicked bend their bow, They make ready their arrow on the string, That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart. If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?”      Psalm 11:2

If you’ve read a fair amount of my articles, you know that I am trying to “watch” as Jesus warned us to do in Matthew 24. I know every generation has had its moment when calamity abounded and The End seemed near.  Two World Wars and many other conflicts have had many thinking the same.

You also know I’ve decried abortion, assisted suicide, and other practices that have become more and more common, even lauded.

Europe was a Christian continent decades ago. No longer.  The same is true of America.  The continent of Africa is in chaos.  Mexico and South America?  I wouldn’t feel safe going most anywhere  in those places.  I can’t identify a wholly Christian nation on the planet anymore.  China seems to hold the most hope for having a large Christian population.  See my article https://jeffreyhking.wordpress.com/2014/05/01/china-more-christian-than-usa/

“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

Not only has the Christian world seen decline in safe countries, but there seems to be nowhere to go for security, period. America is increasingly hostile to Christians.  Bloody, horrific open persecution is the norm in many parts of the globe.

There is talk of an imminent global economic collapse, and the signs are indeed ominous. Society would break down, gangs rampaging to find food and water.  Forget going to the grocery; that’s the first place that’ll be attacked.  Talk of a New World Order, the Bohemian Grove, Illuminati-controlled entertainment industry, and the Mark of the Beast in the form of implanted micro-chips to buy and sell and even run driverless cars make the world seem to be closing in on us all.

“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

More and more mysterious and supernatural things continue to appear; strange noises in the skies, UFO’s and alien encounters, increasing activity in demon possession and exorcisms. The latest is the erecting of exact replicas of the entrance arch to the original Temple of BAAL in Times Square and Trafalgar Square coordinated to happen on the same day this month!

“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. There is plenty to be concerned about.

Unless you read the rest of Psalm 11:

“The Lord is in His holy temple, The Lord’s throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men. The Lord tests the righteous, But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates. Upon the wicked He will rain coals; Fire and brimstone and a burning wind Shall be the portion of their cup.

For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright.”

Look to Jesus, who said, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33

The world and its demonic, evil ruler is having his day, to be sure. But it won’t last.

Whenever I’m having a very tough day or week or month, and I just don’t think I’ll make it, I remind myself that the end of the day or month will come one way or the other. Just hang on till then.  Just make it to 5:00, Saturday,…whenever.  It will be over at the appointed time.  And I will live past that.

So it is in this world where the foundations do indeed shake and are destroyed. Know that not only is the end going to come – and with it our suffering, not our lives – the end has already happened!  Jesus overcame the world on the cross!

Jesus says, “I’m already there, my brothers and sisters!”

We just need to catch up!
