This is surely connected to the previous Off the Cuff post.
Yesterday something stuck in my craw, but it wasn’t anything my conscious mind could identify. Overnight I had some dreams that were indicative in the sense of a parable; the content was not the point. This morning I awoke to the very powerful sense that something wasn’t right.
My first instinct was to pray, of course. I went through a mental routine of checking to see if I could identify it, a sort of moral checklist where I start with confession and repentance to make sure it wasn’t me. Right away I could tell it was somewhere else. So I started checking a few news sources to see if something triggered in my soul. In the midst of my morning routine of life, I went back a couple of times to check. Right when I was about to give up, I spotted something that was a red flag to me.
You don’t have to agree; the primary reason I share this is to teach how a prophetic heart works. A primary element in what I do on this blog is transparency. It’s outside my authority to tell you what to make of this stuff I share, but I can tell when I must cry out and let you see enough to learn or realize it’s time to step away from my peculiar madness.
That red flag had to do with Israel threatening Syria. Keep in mind that it’s just a flag, not the real problem. It signals something evil and nasty going on in the background. This isn’t simply more of the unbearable chutzpah that we’ve all seen before, that insufferable sense of entitlement that justifies the most egregious misbehavior. A specific course of action has been set in motion, covered in secrecy that involves the US government getting dirty hands involved.
And it could just start WW3.
I cannot present to you some reasoned argument, nor would I value anything such arguments could produce. We aren’t into activism because this is something God has permitted as part of the coming tribulation. It’s more of that same cattle herding to some ends we cannot comprehend. All we can know is that it will result in His glory shining brightly. And maybe this post won’t represent any useful prophetic warning to you personally, but it does give you a glimpse at how I do what I do in my ministry.
Now those of you who aren’t driven away, pray with me about our need for wisdom and moral discernment. Pray for mercy on the victims.
