True to itself; the Bible spells out what will happen as people see the world degenerate into worse and worse evil. I’m already affected, and know that I’m slowly proving the above Scripture (in the title of this post) to be true.
Quite honestly – in this world, there is nothing left to warm me. The Scriptures tell us not to abandon fellowship as we see our redemption drawing near, (or, as we see the Day approaching). The times I read that; I never saw the warning that quite honestly, everyone else would be turning cold and insular as well. Therefore, there’s nowhere to go for fellowship.
You can’t ‘do’ Christianity on the Internet. If the only ‘contacts’ you have live thousands of miles from you, you, as another believer remain isolated. There’s no one to watch over you and warn you not to sin. There’s no one to encourage you or chuck an arm around your shoulder to buck you up. You are empty of feeling in the end, and the warmth you thought you had, drains away. The thing that brings you to this realisation is your absolute isolation which has been there for years on end. Your cries are not heard and you know all too well by now that they never will be.
It’s like a plant being left in the desert. Plants need water to survive. If they don’t get it, they die.
Be careful, anyone who is in this position. If you can; find somewhere to go. You cannot do Christianity on your own; no matter how strong you think you are. If you’ve prayed for fellowship and none has come, many years later, it’s probably because you haven’t got off your bum to go and look for it.
Get up and go.
