“Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” Revelations 21:5
Jesus expresses His displeasure with independent decisions resulting from lawlessness and at the same time, His ultimate intentions for His creation. He will replace what appears to be the norm, which has been generated by the gradual falling away, with something different. While the evolution of thought continues on a natural course of rebellion in defiance to God’s rule, He still remains on the throne. His authority overrules what has been placed into motion by laws and decrees which only make sense to the spiritually insensitive. Yet He awakens and disturbs those who wish to know what He thinks about matters that concern the future of all mankind. Only those who are willing to inquire and allow their inquiries to extend beyond their pleasures will stop long enough to question the established course. It is not by coincidence that moral failures are now being celebrated and normalized today. And consequently, uncertainties are increasing and threatening the security of the whole human race. He who sits on the throne allows circumstances to arise in order for all people to consider their ways. The unheard warnings cannot be heard through instructions are experienced through unusual phenomena.
The prophetic warnings of God are not there to add to humanity’s frustrations, but rather to afford an opportunity for those who will participate in the process of renewal. The Church of God is discontented with the direction of Christendom. Christendom is what the world sees and what the world thinks of the Church as a whole in contrast to those who have “contended for the faith which was once delivered to the saints.” He who sat on the throne arises from His throne in order to address the current state of the Church and the world. This is the judgment that began at the House of God which carries over to the world. The light of God exposes the darkness of the world. He allows those who see what He sees to be disturbed as we see examples throughout the Scriptures. The prophets could not find rest among those who paraded their defiance in the face of God. The blindness of the people occurred through the gradual conditioning taking place through entertainment, false messages, and false signs. God’s Word cuts through the propaganda of this modern age as His truth is being published. “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” In a feel-good world, these words are very disturbing. They speak of the end of things as we know them and a birthing of what glorifies God completely.
The signs are all around us and the foundations of manufactured truths are now being shaken. Some would think that His silence is either acceptance or His content. However, He is removing the residue of the past from the hearts of His people as they are purged to want nothing other than His kingdom to come and will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. This is not an addendum to what they desired beforehand, but a new passion that is genuine, sincere, and a revelation to His eternal purpose that is not limited to time or space.
