"WHEN I wrote about Revolution! two years ago, it was not a word being used much in the mainstream. But today, it is being spoken everywhere… and now, the words "global revolution" are rippling throughout the world. From the "Tea Party" revolution in the United States to the uprisings in the Middle East that are spreading like "a virus," there is indeed a global upheaval underway.
I will rouse Egypt against Egypt: brother will war against brother, neighbour against neighbour, city against city, kingdom against kingdom. (Isaiah 19:2)
But it is a Revolution that has been in the making for a very long time…"
It seems to me that we are in the beginning of the second act of a play that spans the globe. Violent revolution, which began in Europe and has now spread to North Africa and the Middle East, is the opening scene. I don't know what follows but I have my suspicions. Fuel prices will rise and food shortages will grow, increasing pressure on governments the world over and fanning the flames of further uprisings.
When will it reach our shores? It already has. But it's just a spark here and there, sparks waiting for a little wind to ignite into a full fledged maelstrom, burning down our government and our way of life, leaving open the door for a "savior".
We are, each and every one of us, graced or cursed to be living in these times. It's up to each of us to either rise to the occasion or to be reduced to ash. And it's only through prayer that we can find the strength to face the future.
I don't know whether the violence we see on the news will erupt into a full scale wildfire or if it will recede back to a smoldering ember waiting to ignite in the future. But I do believe we are witnessing the events foretold in the Bible. We're living in a singular time, never seen before and never to be seen again.
Watch for the signs along the way.
