Back in the days when I wanted to be motivated, I used to listen to a motivational speaker now and then. One I remember is Jim Rohn. In one talk he mentioned something about reading the Bible. I’m paraphrasing here, but he said, “When I read the Bible, about all I can be certain of is that God is a fan of high drama.”
More than a few arguments could be made for that position. The Bible is full of accounts where God steps onto the stage and delivers His own high drama. It usually happens during a production we are just a bit too proud of making.
Today we sometimes hear interventions described as “Red Sea moments.” Just when everything seems lost, the enemy has won, and disaster or annihilation is all that remains for the people of God, the Author steps onto the stage and delivers a crushing defeat to his enemies and victory to his people.
Many people refer to these as Bible stories, because they don’t believe they are true. Some of those people are in churches on Sundays. Some of those people preach in churches on Sundays. I refer to them as biblical accounts, because I believe they are true. We’re each entitled to our own view. Perhaps the “story” building before us now on the high-drama stage that covers the entire earth will change some minds.
Creation would have to be the first such moment. There was nothing. Then there was something. Then there was us, humanity. The idea that men and women evolved from pond scum is how we got to where we are today in the world. We come to believe that we are the only law there is.
The idea that men and women were created by God is where we are going as this Red Sea moment breaks over the earth. A Great Awakening moving across the earth will demonstrate that a brutal and corrupt society can no longer be justified, even in the minds of the brutal and corrupt.
It’s difficult – no, it’s flat out impossible for us to comprehend the scale upon which God operates. Thankfully, we don’t have to comprehend it. All we have to comprehend is His Love for us, which Jesus demonstrated for all of eternity on the Cross. For many of us, accepting that love is difficult, indeed a lifetime journey.
When it comes to outcomes, God of course can do whatever He pleases. In that sense our problem on earth is that we have too many people who mistake themselves for God – and believe they can do whatever they wish with humanity.
God has dealt with that misunderstanding before, and He will surely deal with it again, now. That is how the Tower of Babel came to an end. God simply confused what had been a one-world language. The Flood did a very complete job of cleaning up our earlier effort at human hybridization. Big tech and big pharma’s impending tyranny over humanity will suffer its own demise at God’s hand. We are due for that Red Sea moment.
But how does God orchestrate these events? I believe He speaks to everyone, but not everyone hears him. If the idea of God speaking to you makes you nervous, the Apostle John gave the definitive test for that conversation a long time ago (“test the spirits,” 1 John 4:1). Some of us hear better or worse at different times in our lives. Far fewer both hear and obey. But those are the ones who will be at center stage when God makes his rapidly approaching appearance in what we thought was entirely our own production.
Even in the midst of our wired and COVID-crippled world, God still communicates with us. Is it our conscience? Our spirit? Our soul? Our mind? I don’t have the definitive answer, perhaps because there isn’t one. But God does have an open communication channel with his creation, including us, and he is using it now.
“What am I to do?” Ramous whispered. “It is an impossible task. God alone could not –” Ramous cut that thought short. God alone could, of course, do whatever he wished. “You do not need our assistance,” he muttered. “Why do you not simply do whatever pleases you? Why do you seek to involve us in your plans?” [“Earth’s Final Kingdom”]
