I pray all is well with you!
I want to thank some of you that purchased "The Ten Minute Tribulation" a couple of weeks ago after I announced that Amazon was selling it at an unbelievable low price. If you were not able to get it then I have some good news for you! Don't ask me how they are able to do it, BUT, when God wants something done, HE ALWAYS makes a way! Somehow "The Ten Minute Tribulation" has been made available for only $1.64! It is possible that there is only 13 left at this price but grab it and be blessed if you have not yet read it! Don't fall for anymore of those phony U TURN rapture stories!!! If you NEVER know the TRUTH, You will NEVER know the lies!
You can click any of the book titles to go directly to Amazon and get your copy today!
Now let me get into the topic I mentioned in the heading "What Storm Are You Going Through?"
On Saturday night I visited a small local church here in the Fairfax area and there was a lot of talk about the storm that is approaching the east coast in the next day or so. As the talk continued, I saw a lady come into the church in a wheel chair and suddenly I realized that the approaching storm is nothing compared to the storms that some people are facing every day. All of the talk and hype on Hurricane Sandy will be over in just a couple of days, but, what storm will you be facing when this one has passed?
Luke 8:22-25 Now it came to pass on a certain day, that He went into a ship with His disciples; and He said unto them, Let us go unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. BUT, as they sailed He fell asleep; and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then He arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water; and they ceased, and there was a calm. And He said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for He commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey Him.
Maybe Jesus is napping again as another storm grows, and once again, He is testing the faith of His followers! Waiting to see if we have put our eyes on where we are heading and thinking we have everything under control without JESUS. Sometimes it takes a storm to get His disciples to call on Him like they mean it! Oh, if we could just call on the Name of the LORD like there was a storm approaching on the days when the sky is blue and the smoke from our favorite restaurant is blowing our way! If, we could just see the storm in some people's lives on the bluest and sunniest days that is far worse than Hurricane Sandy could ever be!
One thing amazed me as I watched this lady in the church going through her storm in the wheel chair. She was smiling in the middle of her storm, while some in the church, were frowning about the storm that is coming. The more I thought about that, the more I wondered at how nice it would be,If, that where ever this storm hits the most, how awesome would it be if the people in that area praised God and called on His Name, as hard as the winds outside are blowing!
I remember a major tornado that hit LaPlata, Md on a Sunday about 10 years ago and when I walked through the damage the next day I passed by a few people at different times that I knew from various churches in the area. Trying to have compassion on them as I walked through the unbelievable destruction, I asked each one if they had lost their house not being able to comprehend how it would be possible not to have lost it in this area. To my surprise a few different individuals I spoke with all had about the same story. Most everything around them was destroyed but somehow their house was not touched!
What a PROMISE we have in Psalm 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; BUT it shall NOT come nigh thee!
When you reach the "other side" of this storm be sure to give JESUS ALL THE GLORY for bringing peace during and after it! Whether your storm is called Sandy or Dandy, call on JESUS, and find peace in the middle of it. Praise God for the storm! A time to thank HIM for the ones your gonna be couped up with during the storm!
God bless you! AND be SURE to tell someone on the job about JESUS!
