AWAKENING AFTER THE SHAKING

April 18, 2020

Last week I wrote a blog titled “PRESSURED TO COMPLY” and in it, I speculated whether the Covid-19 was God’s judgment of the earth inhabitants. This week’s blog can be considered a continuation of that theme because of some of the events that happened this past week such as the decrease in the number of Covid-19 hospital admissions and the talk of lifting the shut-in status in several states. My present concern and questions are, “If Covid-19 is God’s judgment, did we learn anything and when things stabilize will we return to the practices that caused God’s hand of judgment to come upon us?”

The book of Judges talks about twelve leaders chosen by God to bring about justice and deliverance for the oppressed people of Israel for they appeared to be in a cycle of sin, suffering, supplication, and salvation. Thus, Israel needed God’s repeated interventions due to their disregard for His laws, commandments, and statutes. God was always delivering them and bringing them out of their captivity but after a period of repentance they forgot about the hardships and oppression they experienced and they returned to their sinful practices. This is seen in a key verse that describes them in Judges 21:25 “In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.”

In Revelation chapters, two and three John the disciple of Jesus was told to address the seven churches in Asia. In these letters were instructions on what was needed to be an overcomer and at the end of the letter was this statement, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” God gave them the vital directions for their success, but would they listen.

This is where we are today. Many voices are saying, “The world has been shaken and now there is an awakening.” However, I fear that we will follow in the footsteps of those that have gone before us and when we settle back into our daily routine we will forget. Our awakening will be momentary and not permanent and it will be necessary for God to judge us again. Furthermore, as stated in Matthew 24 by Jesus who knew the failures and immoral habits of man that wars, famines, pestilences, calamities, and earthquakes would intensify and become more frequent as the end time draws nigh. And these catastrophes are not even the 21 judgments that will occur on earth during the tribulation.

All I can say and pray is “God help us to remain awaken after the shaking.”
