Nature unveils here pleasures, and wrath’s upon us earthlings as her seasons chase the sun. Most take her pleasures for granted, as though it’s a birth wright. It is, and it’s for all to enjoy.
Because the Bible says so, and here’s what’s said. After addressing some naughty behaviors, it’s declared, “Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons fillings our hearts with food and gladness,” Acts 14:17.
But there’s the side of the coin. And it also comes from the Bible. Elijah was upset over the way things were going and so he complained. It started with a question. It started with a question. “What are you doing here Elijah?” So he said, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God of Hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken your covenant, torn down your alters, and killed your prophets with the sword! I alone am left, and they seek to take my life,” 1 Kings 19:9-10.
In response, Elijah was given this directive. “Go out and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold the LORD passed buy, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains, and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake, and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice,” 1 Kings 19:11-12.
Elijah heard that voice and received additional directives which he obeyed. So he heard it. cp. 1 kings 19:13 …. v.21. Then he arose and followed Elijah.
Fortunate are those who, who are zealous for the LORD God of hosts. Because different identities for the supernatural doesn’t mitigate the abilities or faithfulness of God.
In our era Jesus in due time will deal with all those, who not only disobey His edicts, and engage themselves with every effort at their disposal to erase any reverences and obedience to the LORD GOD of hosts.
And Jesus may privilege His Zealots with Elijah like experiences.
Perhaps the lesson here is to leave the nasty work to Jesus. While listening to that still small voice, who has many messages for us, as there stars in the sky. Then being obedient to the directives of that still small voice.
The world will go the way of the world, as it hurries down to the roads of nothingness.
For the zealous in Christ be diligent in learning the art of sanctification. Then that still small voice, may privilege the zealous with God honoring directives. That just might stun those travelers going down to the road of nothingness.
