If you have been a Christian for long enough, you will have noticed that God will often move you from place to place by first breaking the ties to where you are now, so that you can go to where you need to be.
It’s never an easy thing to go through, but it always results in a blessing. Often, an unintended blessing. So, as we see the skies darken around us, we should welcome those times when God breaks the bonds that keep us where we are, so that we can be where we need to be.
Three eleven. That’s what we – in East Asia – call the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami of March 11th, 2011. The rest of you think of it as the time when the Fukushima nuclear reactors melted down and blew up.
However, it’s more than a disaster. It’s also an allegory of the future – an allegory that we need to pay attention to. Those who do not internalize this warning about the future, will be lucky to survive when that future arrives.
Why do I say this?
Most who died in the 3/11 Tsunami, did so because they ignored the warning – or didn’t hear it.
