If you notice in the news, there are more and more landslides, earthquakes, and sink holes appearing by the day and in different places around the world… The ground and the earth is literally giving away and all that has been built on top of it is sinking and caving in…. So it is in our spiritual lives, when we build our lives on weak foundations… World philosophies, new age ideas, false teachings and false doctrines, occult practices, witch-craft, immoral laws, sinful living…. Our foundation will eventually fall down, sink in the sand and then everything around us will begin to cave in…..
Just as the foolish man who built his house on sinking sand.. When the storms and winds came, they beat against his house and it eventually fell.. But the wise man who built his house on the rock (the true Word of God), when the storms and the trials came… He withstood the storms and his house remained standing because the storms could not destroy the foundation…. So it is with us today, getting a word for a cheap trill and a quick fix for your life is not the answer and will only cause you to break down instead of breaking through… But when you eat the true Word of God… It may be bitter going down.. But its better for you as an end result….. Because when everything begins to sink, cave in and fall around you, you will be still standing on the rock of god’s word.. Just like a tree that is planted by the rivers of water….(Jeremiah 17:8)
Even the systems of this world are sinking, caving in and failing, …. Right before the eyes of the world!!! God is showing that he is the only true and sure foundation… Times are too critical to be playing church and to play with souls… The only sure thing that is true and that will keep you and allow you to continue to stand in this evil wicked world… Where even the physical earth is shrinking and giving away…. Is the true word of the living God!
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash” Matthew 7:24.
“They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit” Jeremiah 17:8.
