Here We Go Again!

Here we go again!  Could Queensland, Australia be the site of a new Jonestown or Waco tragedy?  Or follow the devastation of a sweat lodge ministry in America’s Southwest?

He calls himself Yeshua, Jesus. People are flocking to the self-proclaimed Messiah’s compound for a titillating mixture of pop psychology and New Age “mind cleansing.”  I can’t blame people for hoping the guy, as disillusioned as he may be, offers salvation from the worlds growing financial troubles, unending wars, and the incessant violence against women and children.  With hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, and raging fires, even Mother Nature is screaming for a Savior.

That someone would claim to be the Promised One does not come as a surprise.  As we near the End of the Age, Jesus warned there would be false prophets, men claiming to be the Christ. Fame, fortune, whatever the impostors’ games may be, God’s kids won’t be snookered.

“If anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the desert, do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.  For as lightning that comes from the east and is visible in the west, so will it be with the coming of the Song of Man.”  Matthew 24:26 NIV

I do not need to be fooled or deceived.  I know the manner of His return.  I do need to be patient for Jesus always keeps His promises.  It may not be today; it may not be tomorrow, but in His perfect time, “Every knee will bow; every tongue will swear…”  Isaiah 45:23 NIV

And one day I will declare Him to be the One and Only Yeshua, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
