Rumors subsided when the Russian Space Agency determined the cause of the dramatic fire ball that blazed across the horizon was a 10 ton meteor. With the force of 20 atomic bombs… the meteor exploded, just before crashing into a frozen lake.
News of this cosmic spectacle spread like wildfire around the globe. Reality hit home realizing we are vulnerable and not always able to ward off the forces of nature. We have this pre-conceived notion we are immune to global catastrophe. We put faith in our government to protect us and count on science to warn us, but our trust in man quickly falters when we find ourselves at the mercy of what’s beyond our control.
It’s unnerving to realize that any ordinary day could quickly rock our world and shatter our perception of life on earth. Scripture forewarns us of a time when God would shake not only the earth, but the heavens. Mountains will tremble and fire will fall from heaven but this shouldn’t really shock us if we’re trusting in the one thing that will last forever, the word of God. This universal shaking began at the first coming of Christ and will continue until His second coming. This shaking causes you to see just how fallible you are and awakens the reality that yes, in the twinkling of an eye… one day the entire earth will pass away. So, rather than trust in man... put your trust in God, for the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable and the mortal with immortality.
“For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. Haggai 2:6-7
