When there is a loss of power, life changes drastically. Chaos will inevitably overcome society when there is a loss of power. Will you be prepared when there is a loss of power?
I’m not a prophet of doom by any stretch of the imagination. I’d just like to talk about how things have played out historically and urge you to consider making appropriate plans for you and yours when there is a loss of power in the future.
If we could turn the switch of God’s power off in this world for just 5 minutes, we would see a very frightening place. The loss of the power of God here in the earth would be like turning the lights out in a brightly lit room.
The loss of power strikes fear into the hearts of city and state agencies. When there is a loss of power, communication goes out the window. When there is a loss of power, food sources begin to dry up. When there is a loss of power, darkness abounds. When there is a loss of power there are riots and looting in the streets and society spirals out of control.
Fear is Present when there is a Loss of Power
The most prevalent force that shows up when there is a loss of power is fear. Fear of what caused the loss of power, Fear of what the neighbor whom we trusted yesterday will do out of desperation today.
Under the Protection of the Umbrella of the Presence of God
Think of the presence of power in our society as a huge umbrella which shields us from the elements. When under the protection of an umbrella, we can walk in the rain without getting wet. The purpose of the umbrella is to keep us dry even though rain is falling all around us. Take away the protection of the umbrella, and we become drenched from the falling rain that was present all along.
There are many unfortunate things that happen in this world to Christians and non-Christians alike. But as horrible as this world may seem sometimes, the presence of the power of God is here in the earth. Because of our individual situations and circumstances we may not always see or acknowledge God’s power at work in our lives, but none the less the power of God is at work 24/7 on our behalf.
If we could somehow turn the switch of God’s power off in this world for just 5 minutes, we would see a very frightening place. This world would putrefy right before our very eyes. The loss of the power of God here in the earth would be like turning the lights out in a brightly lit room.
Where will you be when the Power goes out?
The day is coming when the presence of God will no longer engulf this world. When the power of God is no longer present, this world will not be a very nice place to be. Where will you be when the power goes out?
Today we can turn on our local news broadcasts and see the rain of horrendous things that take place in the lives of people all over the world. These things are taking place daily even though the power of God is present in the earth.
One can only imagine what this world will be like when the presence of God leaves the earth. The good news is that you don’t have to fear or be concerned about being caught without the protection of the power of God.
Through the acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we can have confidence in the fact that we won’t be left behind when the power goes out here on earth.
God has never said anything that has not or will not come to pass. There will come a day when the presence of God will no longer serve as our umbrella of protection here in the earth. In that day this world won’t be a very nice place to be. Where will you be when the power goes out?
