We are in the time of shaking, and things are being shaken, but as we look at it, it has only just begun.
Jesus says behold I stand at the door and knock. Many sleep, they don't hear him knock. So what does he do. He bashes the door down and comes as a thief. Only to shake one out of their slumber.
God in his love is prepared to take drastic measures or order for you to see that your inheritance is at hand.
It is true he chastises them he loves, yet he is now inviting us to come, come, come he says, the feast has been prepared. He has good things to share with those who come.
There is also a darker side of his judgment to those who refuse him, let us not go there. But let us seek him to find our portion in him, it is the time of comfort to those who believe and are willing. A time of great comfort. He says comfort comfort. Come unto me, Jesus is calling, Who will listen!
