Whatever you may personally think of President Trump, for good or bad, or of his take on various policies, or his “flourish” on Twitter, God used him this past Friday to give all of us a warning, and extra time.
God is in control of everything that goes on. I believe He was showing us this past Friday that we are in the zone for the Second Signpost to occur any time. The Second Signpost—with its chaos, oil price skyrocketing, and all the economic turbulence that could possibly come from all that—was put on hold. How long, we cannot know.
Apparently, we have been given some time. Use these days wisely. Draw close to Christ, and He will draw close to you (James 4:8). Do not deceive yourselves by only reading the Bible—do what it says (James 1:22).
By doing what the Bible says, obeying Christ’s commands, obeying what the writers of the Epistles wrote, you will experience God’s love directly. He will show up in your life in amazing ways. Pursue what He wants you to do. Pursue His business. If you do we have His promise that if we seek first His kingdom and righteousness He will provide all the things we need (food, drink, clothes) as well.
Finally, if you believe He is showing you to be a Joseph, that is, to store up things for the hard times to come, then do it. Do not delay. We have been given some time. A day, a year, we do not know.
Financial analysts have said that if Iran does what the Second Signpost shows it might, you cannot count on the western banking system to continue to exist. Do not depend on your savings account or portfolio.
So if you are to plant a garden, do it. If you are to acquire some gold or silver, do it. If you are to acquire the means to feed and care for people, do it. God may do miraculous things to care for His people, or He may just use you and what He has showed you to do to prepare. And wouldn’t that be a blessing?
Like the lesson Peter learned on the Sea of Galilee during the storm, keep your eyes on Jesus. Only concern yourself with Christ and what He is showing you to do. By doing this, you build your house on the Rock.
