Firery Wake Up Call?


Hearts are mourning and tears are falling as people begin to realize the depth of destruction they have suffered from the terrifying fires sweeping through our mountains this week. Many lost almost everything material that they owned, as well as somethings non-material like memories stored in photos and computers, thoughts and perhaps books stored on computers that were burned up. Some are stout and surface with thankfulness that they and their families are alive and well! Others lost something intangible, like the couple who worked all their lives ready to enjoy a good retirement in their “special place” to finish out their lives. Then one day ‘poof’ that ‘special place’ was gone up in smoke.

Saddest of all were were two people who thought their belongings were too precious to leave behind. They took too long packing everything and died along with their home. How sad! They were disobedient to the mandatory call to leave immediately thinking surely they had time to pack up some things. How often do our disobedient actions cause us to lose out?

Please pray for these two people and for all victims of the fires! Remember them as you happen to look at a picture of your family.

We may not die outwardly from all rebelliousness, but we can die inwardly, spiritually. Not obeying God’s directions and commandments, can open the door for the enemy to come in and lead us to destruction in the sinful pride of “I know better”. Yes, as surely as it led that poor couple into a burning death, our deliberate rebelliousness can cause spiritual death thus losing our chance to spend an eternity with our loving Father and Jesus in heaven. It will cast us into a hellfire of eternal suffering.

These are different times we are living in right now. Confusion reigns in many minds. Division separates people and even families. Coldness of heart grows as the enemy battles for the souls of mankind. We can use these fires as a wake up call to search our minds, and souls for true meaning in life. Its too late for the non-essentials, for flippant words, for attempting to hold onto former thoughts, hurts and false values.

What if all these nonessential things were suddenly gone? What is left of value? Find truth within. Find God and His passionate desire to be close to us, then seek His face with fire in our hearts!
