...and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. -Matthew 7:25 (NKJV)
Christ and the New Testament writers have commanded and instructed the Church to prepare our families and fellowships for the inevitable storms of this life - storms of chaos, affliction, and persecution.
Have we made the necessary preparations?
Do we know what God desires and Jesus commands? Do we recognize these storms for what they are - spiritual battles we cannot avoid?
Is our house founded on the rock of our obedience to the commands of Christ?
In The Storms Have Only Just Begun, Rob Streetman challenges the Church to inspect our individual and corporate foundations - to expose any spiritual shallowness, cracks, or vulnerabilities threatening the stability and security of our house.
Once our houses are adequately inspected, necessary repair and restoration must follow, lest the storms catch us unprepared and vulnerable to the deceptions, distractions, and destruction our enemies intend.
With God's inspection and restoration complete, abiding as He desires becomes our final consideration. How do we respond to the storms of this decade and the destruction they produce?
Rob Streetman encourages the Church to abide in Christ and embrace the responsibilities and opportunities entrusted to the inhabitants of strong houses: providing refuge, encouragement, and truth to those who have lost theirs.
God's purpose and desire for The Storms Have Only Just Begun is the ultimate perfecting of our houses, for His glory and kingdom!
