Something Big is About to Happen (WIsh I knew what it is!)

I ran into an old friend today.  We met in the 60’s and he looked like he still lives there. Long unwashed hair, one of the 99% of occupy SF. Locked in to the same music, trying to make yesterday his today and hoping others will join him.

Who am I to judge? No not me. I am all too aware of the pattern of history, the masses clinging to what was, afraid to raise their heads and look at what is.

We do not understand what is. We CANNOT understand what is, for “what is” unfolds before our very eyes and most of us won’t understand until we look back on it. As has been said, “life can only be understood backwards, but must be lived forwards.”

We are on the cusp of something and I do not know what it is.  I sense God is about to do something really big, but I do not know what it is.

Prophets are not so much people who see the future. They are those who see the present through God as revealed in the past, yet very real and still speaking today.

They seem wise because they have sunk deep roots in God’s patterns throughout history. They seem wild and unruly because seeing today through God’s eyes, they speak words like these: “Who may abide the day of his coming? For He is like a refiners fire.”

I hear a voice in my head, I know it is Howard Beale from the classic movie Network “”I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!!”

But it seems like it could just as easily be the voice of God.
