What good is a lighthouse without a light?

Posted by appolus on April 18, 2019

Dan 7:25  And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Saints, we are living in these times. No matter which way you turn in this world today, say the wrong thing and it can mean you job, your reputation and your place in society. The young Australian rugby player who was recently dismissed because he quoted a scripture that dared to challenge the great golden calf of our day, homosexuality, is a good example. Not just homosexuality, but transgenderism and other forms of mental illness. I would love to tell you that things are going to get better but they are not. As Daniel says above, the powers that be are changing the times and the laws and the saints indeed are being worn down by this. Daniel also says that we shall we shall be given over to this for a time. Rev 13:7  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. You see there that John in the book of Revelation is confirming what Daniel wrote. Given that truth saints, it is vital that we stand firm.

Daniel speaks of a time when the saints will be worn down. I believe the process of the saints being worn down has already begun. Times have been changed and wrong has become right and truth, at best, is relative. This is wearing the saints out as they struggle to come to terms with these fast changing circumstances. There has been a blitzkrieg so to speak in the realms of the spirit. Compromise and unrighteousness has surrounded the saints. We are an obstacle that at some point will have to be removed if the enemy is to have total dominance. More laws will be changed and we will witness more compromise by Christendom

These are the days where it is vital that we find our strength in Jesus. We must press into Him, we must abide under the shadow of the almighty. It is time to be unashamed of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus. Yes you will lose friends, even Christian friends. Co-workers and family will find you unacceptable as they are drawn ever deeper into the sea of compromise and corruption. But listen brothers and sisters, if we lose our saltiness, then what good are we? If we allow the light that is in us to become dim and we cover it, then what is our purpose on earth? If the light in the lighthouse is turned of then what good is the lighthouse? It would be a structure without a purpose and countless people would drown in the storm as they are crushed upon the rocks.

It is life itself to know the King of Kings who sits upon the throne and the train of His robe fills the temple. He also is the Shepherd who takes us in His arms and carries us when we are wearied. He never sleeps and is never wearied and I love Him. And when I wait on Him I can find the strength to run and the weariness is left below as I am caught up in the updrafts of His presence and I am carried up into His arms. Wait upon Him saints , we shall find our strength in Him. Do not be tempted to remain silent, speak the truth in love. The whole world is headed directly onto the rocks and its only hope is the light in the lighthouses. We are that light and now more than ever we must allow that light to shine forth into a dark world being consumed in a storm of confusion and rebellion.

    This word fits the times we are living in perfectly. You hit a home run on this one brother Frank. Also a good word that fits right in with what you are saying, and it is an encouragement for our Aussie brother that just got the boot for being a Christian. The word is Isaiah 59:14,15 “And judgement is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off, for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea truth faileth, and he that departeth from evil, maketh himself a prey. And the Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgement,” …. We can take comfort in the fact that the Lord is watching even the sparrow that falls to the ground. He will keep his eye on his saints. There is an appointed time for the reprobate people of this world. To our young Australian brother. “lift up your head and lpok up, for our redemption draweth nigh” Luke 21:28

      Amen Robert! It is a perfect scripture and you of course are right, not a single sparrow falls to the ground without the Lord knowing about it, how much more does He care about His children……………….bro Frank
