With Walden Pond essayist Henry David Thoreau (1817-62)
"The change from storm and winter to serene and mild weather, from dark and sluggish hours to bright and elastic ones, is a memorable crisis which all things proclaim. It is seemingly instantaneous at last."
This reminds me of the Torah/Prophets passage about Ariel found in Isaiah 29:5
"Moreover the mutlitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the mutlitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passaweth away; yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly."
In fact, when reading vs 1-8 is an awesome picture Yah paints in our minds -- a movie with the GREATEST end.
We see Ariel, besieged by her enemies, being distressed by Yah, judgment meted against her -- surrounded by millions and millions of enemies -- and then, in an instant suddenly, those lustful enemies are suddenly -- AWAKENED RUDELY and Ariel becomes TRIUMPHANT ZION! In an instant, like at that point in Star Wars when you think Darth Vader and the evil Empire are going to win and it looks like the good guys have no hope -- and then, in an instant, the side of good triumphs over evil.
This is the picture we have in Isaiah 29.
And, years from now, there will come a revived French Revolution of bloody proportions which will be global -- a tribulation in which apostate religious leaders will persecute the faithful in Messiah, and it will seem as if all hope is lost, as if Ariel is being judged, as if those who love YahShua will perish from off the face of the earth as the Whore spills blood . . .
And then, in an instant suddenly, YahShua will burst from the sky, and all the tribes of the earth will wail and mourn, and the faithful will embrace resurrection. What a time it shall be, when the kingdoms of this earth become the kingdoms of Messiah -- when Ariel, in an instant, transforms into Zion.
Even so, come quickly Master YahShua ha Maschiach!
Love in YahShua and by His Torah,
Apostle Daniel Yochanon Lee
