There is a step in our Messiah’s prophecy in the Apocalytic chapter in Matthew’s account that involves malevolent spirits invading the earth.
I hear people freaking out. This is the time of the “storm” that Messiah spoke of in Matthew 7. It is one thing to believe that He once existed and He is coming back. But it is another to follow through with His words and commands. This time will divide down the line those that listened to Messiah and those that view His verses in the Gospel as reference material. Isn’t that what has been coming down from the majority of the pulpits? The guy on stage lets you think about it.
24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
There are two types of houses. The unfortunate house is still someone who believes in something about Messiah. But he or she did not bring Him inside his or her house. And that house shall be destroyed.When a house falls, it is a metaphor that the building will be inhabitable. The resident is thus homeless.
The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell,
There is another house, that has welcomed in the commands of Messiah.
The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock;
The rain and the flood are past children Sunday School. The rain comes from above. The flood is allegorical to the Deluge at Noe’s time, the great springs burst forth from the deep. This refers to the shaking of the heavens where angels and demons come to invade humans and their minds. If the Word in hidden in your heart, the house, then you will be passed over by the evil spirits. Those who go by a token or by lip service are empty inside. They house of cards will fall, Messiah says.
