A 5.8 magnitude tremor recently shook the White House, Capitol and Pentagon and was felt up and down the eastern seaboard. Focused there at the center of our nation’s political and economic core, this shaking should cause American families to “consider our ways” and “return to the Lord,” who said through the ancient Hebrew Prophet Haggai:
“For thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Once more in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth, the sea also and the dry land. I will shake all the nations….I am going to shake the heavens and the earth. I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the nations.” (Haggai 2:6, 7, 21, 22)
The chaos of the Arab Spring has given way to the seasonal uncertainties of this summer, with its destructive tornadoes, triple-digit temperatures, harvest-ending droughts, and angry rioters around the world.
May the Lord be merciful to us and show believing families how we should live—in these critical end-times!
