God is at work all around us. Will we join Him?
IT’S WORTH CONSIDERING
One of the most-often asked questions regarding prophecy is where are we in biblical prophecy. While that question is impossible to answer with great detail, we can know that a major change is happening that is causing us to re-think some of our long-held “positions.” One of the greatest changes is taking place in Europe. The influx of refugees is inflicting massive and far-reaching change. The face of Europe is changing and it’s happening overnight.
As the population changes, so does the culture, the religion, and the government. Not only are nations changing, but several are debating whether to join or leave the EU. Twenty years ago it looked like the stage was set for the ten-nation confederacy as described in the prophecies of Daniel. Now all bets are off…. for the moment. The face of Europe is changing. Something big is taking shape and the world seems powerless to stop it.
This is because the world is powerless to stop it. It’s already written in the Book of Truth, and everything is going according to what was written long ago. Who would have thought that London would ever have a Muslim mayor? God knew it from the beginning of time. Who would have thought that an upstart band of religious fanatics named ISIS would change the balance of power in the Middle East? God knew it. Islam is on the march around the world. God knew that too.
AS I SEE IT
God also knew that He was going to use the chaos to advance His kingdom. He knew that He was going to bring former Muslims to Him as they saw what their Muslim “brothers” were doing in the name of their religion. God also knew that He would have His people in crucial places using all the latest technology to provide hope in their native languages via satellite TV. I am so encouraged as I read the stories from ministries like SAT-7 and others. The real God is drawing Muslims to Him by the thousands as they search for meaning for their lives and hope for their families.
God loves to bring hope in the midst of despair, and He loves to see His children joining Him in doing just that. Yes, the face of Europe is changing, but in the midst of it all, the face of Jesus is being seen through the love of His followers. God is up to something big and His children have a choice. We can do our own thing, or we can join Him in what He is doing to reveal Himself and His love to the world.
The face of America is also changing, and the same opportunity to join God in His work is available right here, right where you live. Look around. Where is He working? Where is His name becoming known? Where are people asking questions? Where are the people who really need hope? Where is God inviting you to join Him?
Just as a slave in biblical times was to look out for the interests of his master, so are the bond-servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are to see things from His point of view, not ours, thinking about what’s best for His kingdom, not ours.
The world is changing. What will we do to make it better where God has placed us?

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic, our government could find a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right down to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? What’s more, they tracked her calves to their stalls, too. But they are unable to locate fifteen million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.
