A World in Transition
Time seems to be moving very quickly now. And God, and his angels, are moving, too.
Old, scandal-ridden systems that have been in place for centuries are crumbling with new spiritual directions, world-transforming ideas and inventions taking their place. Industries we grew up with that served as our pastime, moral compass, and helped us understand the world around us through images that produced laughter and tears are dying, with new visionaries taking their place.
Some formerly privileged individuals—e.g., Catholic bishops accused of pedophilia—are now being exposed. And this coming week may very well prove revealing as famous people who were involved with Jeffrey Epstein’s so-called ‘Pedophile Island’ may be named publicly.
God is certainly no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). If you are interested in reading about how God deals with the most vulnerable of victims in such cases, young children, I encourage you to read my book, Veronica’s Story. It describes how angels helped a young woman named Veronica through an absolutely horrific experience involving sex trafficking.
Although chaos seems to rule the world, we must never forget that God remains firmly in control.
The world, in fact, is undergoing a great transition. I wrote a Facebook note about this called A World in Transition that you can read here.
In the midst of change and a pandemic that, in the natural, appears to remain active, feeling lost and anguished would not be unusual. This holds especially true for the most vulnerable, those who don’t have a firm base—religious or spiritual, economic, psychological, emotional, physical etc.—on which to stand, so to speak. Analogously, Scientific American recently described Covid-19 as an x-ray of our society here.
But did you know that the words ‘fear not’ or a variation thereof appear at least 71 times in the Bible? When angels come into contact with people, this is typically one of the first things they say! ‘Fear not. Do not be afraid. Everything will be alright and let me tell you what your role is in all of this is.’
In spite of bleak outward appearances, however, God is actively working both on earth and in heaven on behalf of his righteous children. The truths expressed in the first half of this post may shake you up. But God’s love is evident in his care for the children—the righteous and the unrighteous. According to scripture, the righteous (the wheat) must grow up side by side with the tares (the unrighteous) until Jesus’ return. This is because uprooting the tares might harm the wheat. Furthermore, it wouldn’t give the tares an opportunity to repent. In Jesus’ own words, ‘While you are gathering up the tares, you may uproot the wheat with them. Allow both to grow together until the harvest.’ Matt 13:29-30). (Source: Nelson Walter’s video.)
The Signs Are Already Here
Although no one knows when the harvest will come except God, there are signs.
I wrote a Facebook note about this called The Angels Are Already Here that you can read here. I believe that heightened angelic activity in the world is, indeed, a sign that the wheat and the tares are bearing fruit. This sign is in addition to other signs.
What a wonderful time to be alive!
God bless and may you see angels,
