Relax :: By Jim Towers

At the title of this writing, you may be asking “Who can relax in this chaotic climate!?” If you are a spiritual Christian who knows scripture, YOU can, knowing that Almighty God is in control. However, too many nominal Christians who only go to church to be seen and to climb social circles, they have been caught off guard and are now scared out of their wits. Today, with most churches closed, there is no reason to continue the charade, and God may just be sitting back to see what we are going to do now without the trappings of a meeting place. Will we draw closer to Him and His Son or will we sit home and fret?

The thing about human nature is that as long as we have needs and wants met, we couldn’t care less about others.

Criminality is a way of life for many in our culture. Satan the Destroyer has blinded the eyes of those who today are rampaging across the country causing destruction, making them believe they are doing something good for the country while at the same time taking things that don’t belong to them and wreaking havoc on others. Theft is wrong no matter who does it, and the word of God condemns it.

Today, many people are wringing their hands in anxiety, wondering what’s going to happen next. Some are even ending it all because of the things they see looming in the immediate future. If they had read the Bible, they would know that these things have to happen because we are living in the time of the beginning of sorrows. What with plagues, lawlessness and moral breakdown, things can begin to look pretty scary, especially for those unaccustomed to these uncomfortable situations.

But who can relax in this chaotic, lawless, and Godless society? Christians should, which isn’t to say we should be complacent. Instead, we must by all means engage culture with the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Non-Christians can’t help it if they don’t know better than to drug out, get drunk and flip out completely – they don’t have a solid and sure foundation on which to plant their feet.

Many people are still reeling from the covid thing, and now insurrection is sweeping across the country. Things are beginning to look bad for us, but I would be hard-pressed to believe that the Christian community is going to sit idle while our country burns to the ground, even though I’ve seen their complacency time and again.

As for lukewarm Christians who are distressed over the present insurrection, the Bible says,

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7, NKJV).

That’s what the unadulterated word of God says, and I have chosen to believe it. It really works – so relax, God’s got your back.

Insofar as my screenplay is concerned, now I may have to inject the lawlessness that’s sweeping across the nation into the script alongside the epidemic lockdown. If these things continue to happen as predicted by the prophets and Jesus in present tense – then I really have my work cut out for me. It could be that I will be pounding the keys without let-up about the chaos that is erupting around the nation and the world at large.

With all that’s going on in the world, I can see that this film is a much-needed endeavor. After all, without answers from the word of God, where does one look for solace? There will be no man-made thoughts or ideas coming from me in this film.

I may be asking for permission from world-renowned Christians like Jonathan Cahn to show a clip of their thoughts in one of the many scenes depicting world news on television and/or the internet. After all, I’m not the only one able to discern the signs of the times. I chose to stand with men who – because of their knowledge of scripture – have had their senses sharpened.

Whether there is still time or not to pull this thing off before the rapture sweeps true believers away, is all up to God’s timing. To me, all that’s happening is indicative of the last of the Last Days that usher in the Rapture of the church, so I’ve been expecting these things to happen and am fully prepared physically and emotionally.

I’ve been tying up loose ends, such as reaching out to friends and family, hoping for the best – but prepared for the worst. My prayer life is becoming stronger and more intimate by cutting straight to the chase.

I know that World history is rife with this sort of behavior, but this time there may not be a reprieve since China and Russia are gearing up for war along with Iran, following their lead against us (and Israel) just as the prophets of God predicted. Can the rapture of the church be upon us?

A good Book:

Even though I have experienced a good number of miracles throughout my life, I never fail to be inspired by the miracles that others have experienced as well. It seems that God knows just what you need – when you need it, be it an affirmation of His existence, or something helpful to yours.

I just finished reading Dr. Eben Alexander’s “Proof of Heaven” written in 2012. (I somehow failed to read it when it was first published.) Here is a world-class neurosurgeon who, for all intents and purposes, “died” on the operating table. The tale he has to tell is astounding to those who have never experienced an epiphany like his.

I believe God chose this former atheist to be a vessel of this welcome good news because of his brilliance in his chosen profession. What an encouraging read!
