The Bible offers up quite a few examples of people who faced some of the same challenges that we will soon face, as these Last Days accelerate. Men and women throughout the Bible were tested in their resolve to believe God and obey Him. And, the Bible records these successes – in enough detail to draw strength from their example.
One of those examples is Gideon (pronounced in Hebrew: GEED-ohn). He was a nobody, with faith in God. That made him a ‘somebody’ in God’s eyes, an enough of a ‘somebody’ to be used by God to demonstrate the power of God.
My hope is that we will take these examples to heart, as we gaze into a terrifying future.
I stand amazed by how little truth and faith there is. God calls us to believe what He says in the Bible, and to ignore all who speak contrary to the Bible. Yet, we refuse. And yes, I put myself in that category, since I have been as guilty as anyone.
All of the prophecies in the Bible will be fulfilled, yet we tend to look around us and think that it can’t be possible. Everything looks so normal.
That’s because we are walking by sight, instead of by faith.
With all that is happening right now, you would think that a book review would be the last thing for me to talk about. But, it is precisely because there is so much going on that I must do this book review.
Spiritual blindness is the one thing keeping Christians from seeing what is happening and what is about to happen. If our brothers and sisters were spiritually awake and following the Holy Spirit, I would not need to tell you anything.
But, I believe that this book is vital for many to read. So, bear with me as I discuss A Bucket Full of Holes.
