God will not stand by and allow satan to rule and reign over His creation. The devil was able to turn an entire world population against the knowledge of God. God found one righteous man, Noah and his family. He instructed Noah to build an ark and to book his passage for his family and every pair of animals. Than God sent the rain and destroyed every living creature from the earth. Years later, sin resurfaced in Sodom and Gomorrah and it was threatening to spread over the whole world. God sent fire and brimstone and destroyed those cities. He had to protect what little righteousness there was in the world.
Man in general has not paid much attention to his history with his Creator. Man is reverting back to the rebellion that brought two floods and fire. God promised He would never send another flood, but He didn’t say He wouldn't send fire. If God said He would never send fire, we would not have the Holy Ghost today. God will not let sin overtake the world as it tried to in the past.
Genesis 3:17 Adam, because you listened to your wife and not Me, the ground is cursed.
Sin brought the curse into our land and now there is a revival of sin every where. Natural disasters are the result of sin, earthquakes, floods, droughts and fires. Man knows his planet is in trouble and now he’s trying to save it. All of man’s ingenuity and wealth cannot save this planet, it is connected to his fallen nature. Man was given dominion over the earth, but he did not speak what was right. God saved man and He can save the planet, but the leaders have no faith for such a deliverance. So sin once again has overtaken man in strategic locations all over the world. So what will God do now? He can’t send a flood. Besides all this, the righteous are intermingled with the sinners!
Acts 2:18 On My servants, I will pour out My Spirit. 19 I will show signs and wonders. 21 And it will come to pass that whosoever will call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
God’s final attempt to deal with sin will not be anything like He did in the past. I know most Christians were hoping God would bring judgment, but God has a master plan. God is sending revival fires that will be so obvious, no man will be able to discount it. The world is so full of darkness, a little light will be seen afar and by many. Every man will know he must choose his darkness or God’smarvelous light. I believe millions will turn to Christ. I don’t
know how many will continue to embrace the darkness.
This will be a great time to be a saint or a sinner. The saints will pray the revival in and the sinner will know the way to eternal life. I don’t profess to know all the details of God’s master plan, but I know He is the Lord of the supernatural. I perceive this is God taking the winning hand away from the devil. If God were to send a flood or fire to destroy man, the devil would claim victory. But if God orders a world-wide revival and billions get saved, God gets the victory. God needs our prayers. We still have dominion and He is moved by our desires. We desire that all men might be saved.
