Unsettled. Knowing that our current situation is only temporary keeps us from truly settling in and becoming comfortable. When you think about it, isn’t that the reason God instituted the Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot? He wants us to trust him alone and rely on him for our every need, including our home and freedom. He wants his people to set up temporary shelters as a memorial to what he did when he brought his people out from under slavery in Egypt. I believe he intends to release us from our captivity again, but this time it is a worldwide event! As soon as we comprehend that we have the power through God to overcome the evil that has overtaken and is currently dominating this world, he will set us free. He freed his people from Egyptian tyranny through Moses; then, he freed our conscience through our salvation in Jesus; next, I believe he will set us free from the clutches of Satan and bind him to give us true peace. Don’t give up hope, and hold on to what you have until Jesus comes again.
Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.” “Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. Revelation 22:11-12
Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, Philippians 3:19-20
