Last Shift in Tacoma
After 17 years as a medic in the state of Washington, I’ll be moving to a slightly warmer location next week. I’ve taken a job in Phoenix, Arizona. I’m sorry – that’s as much as I can say about the new job for now.
Our nation and indeed, the world is at a crossroads. I’m not trying to be cliche’. I’m concerned about some things God has shown me. I’m concerned – but not afraid. We need to be prepared for major changes in the way we live. The times we’re entering will require us to be united like we’ve never been before. I see darkness advancing swiftly, but I also see the light growing more intense. There is a separation coming; a defining of light and dark. Lines will be drawn and we’ll be forced to stand on one side or the other. We need to prepare our hearts and minds for some big challenges and if you’re just hearing about this, you’re late getting started.
When you need food and there isn’t any to be found, don’t give in to fear. Know that God can provide what you need. His disciples multiplied the loaves of bread and fed thousands. We’re going to need this kind of faith in the days ahead. Share what you have and God will give more. He knows your needs and cares for you. Remember that these difficulties aren’t His doing; they come from the enemy. Don’t blame God – trust Him. Be people of the kingdom.When hospitals won’t take the sick and injured anymore, remember what you’ve seen here and consider the miracles of Jesus. All this has been an example for you, to use in your community. Gather friends and heal the sick wherever they are. Be people of the kingdom.When shortages come, don’t go to the cities looking for what isn’t there any more. Stay home and live off what you have. Don’t give in to fear. God can provide what you need. Don’t get caught in the riots or you’ll become a casualty. Learn the lessons from those who have been down this road before you. Keep yourself and family in good spirits, help others in whatever way you can and God will be your rear guard. Be people of the kingdom.Establish communities of safety when chaos comes. Band together with neighbors, share what you have. Live simply, not extravagantly or violently. Pray for one another. Heal one another, and watch out for the safety of the group. There is strength in numbers. Don’t give in to corruption because lawlessness abounds; integrity matters. Be people of the kingdom.
Consider praying for my family as we prepare to embark on a new chapter of our lives. We greatly covet your prayers. Thanks in advance.Thank you for allowing me into your life. I never thought it would turn out this way. It really is a dream come true.
