As illustrated in the previous article, this movement of the Holy Spirit is not just reaching Christian communities; it is reaching every corner of the earth. Amidst the chaos, the confusion, the corruption and greed comes Hope in the form of a still small inner voice calling us back to our creator. This calling is our great occasion to find the Answer we have been looking for, the question is will we take heed or not.
For naysayers, look at the statistics of global change in every area of our lives, and there the pattern emerges. The first Spatial Statistic conference 2011 mapping global change, being held in The Netherlands in March of 2011 is an unprecedented attempt to quantify the uncertainty of rapid changes in environmental, ecological, climatic, energy, health and economic issues while speculating the potential consequences. Experts from academia, research, and industry are invited to participate to find answers.
Ironically, what these experts in various fields will use research and intellect to come to some scientific conclusions, the individuals who believe in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit will already know. This paradigm shift in global thinking becomes even more evident as followers of Jesus Christ develop a deeper relationship. The story is unfolding for those who have the eyes to see, and the ears to hear.
To follow this calling to what is not seen, but sensed intuitively is a move from the natural to the supernatural. God did not leave us here to wander in the dark, he gave us clear instruction through the His divinely inspired Word –the Bible. This Spirit-led book chronicles both man’s existence and destiny; all the while, pointing to one pivotal moment that brings man into union with God. This one moment in history was the birth, death and subsequent resurrection of God’s Word made flesh (John 1:14) –His Son, Jesus Christ.
Our choice to answer this personal intimate calling to the love of Jesus Christ is to choose eternal life. It is not just life after death, but eternal life living within us here and now. This one simple choice opens the door to the Kingdom of God, and His Glory (Luke 17:21) takes residence within you.
