When The Cats Away…

When the cats away…

Grandfather sat us down and told us a story of Moses on the mountaintop. When Moses dwelt on the mountaintop of Sinai, he said, the people began to lose faith in the days of his absence. They began to fall into apostasy and build the golden calf.

There’s a revelation about civilization and the last days in this story. For almost two thousand years, parts of civilization was viewed as “Christian.” But Jesus, like Moses, went up to be with God, leaving His people below. Just as with the physical absence of Moses, the Hebrews descended into apostasy, so with the physical absence of Jesus, our civilization is descending into its own apostasy.

So we shouldn’t be completely shocked to see the apostasy around us in the media, the culture, or even in the church world. All the more, it’s crucial that you live like one of the faithful in the days of the absence of Moses. All the more, don’t go along with the majority. All the more, abstain from the ways of the world. And all the more, keep your eyes above. For Jesus, like Moses, will return and will reward those who stayed faithful in the days of His absence.

See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power, and he rules with a mighty arm. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him. Isaiah 40:10

Commit to do what’s right no matter what. Stand apart from the world and faithful to your coming King.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
