Editorial – The Coming Storm

The sun shone warm as I stepped outside on my way to teach a class. I considered driving, but opted to walk in the sunshine. Then, just beforclass let out, a sudden storm blew in. The wind howled and the rain fell in torrents as small branches crashed against the buildingWithout my car or even an umbrella, I regretted not making preparation!

As I dashed through the pelting rain, I thought of an even greater storm that is coming—a storwe need to preparfor before it is too late. This coming storm is not a thunderstorm or any other meteorological disturbance, but the final storm of evil that will break upon this world before Jesus comes to rescue His people. 

Angels are norestraining the winds of strife, that they may not blow until the world shall be warned of its coming doom; but a storm is gatheringready to burst upon the earth; and when God shall bid His angels loose the winds, there will be such a scene of strife as no pen can picture.” Education, 179, 180.

There will be no escape from this coming storm except as we make preparation now

Now the great work from which the mind should not be diverted is the consideration of our personal safety in the sight of God. Are our feet on the rock of ages? Arwe hiding our- selves in our onlrefuge? The storm is comingrelent- less in its fury. Arwe prepared to meet it? Arwone with Christ as He is one with the Father? Arwe heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ? Arwworking in copartnership with Christ?” Evangelism, 199.

In great mercy, the Lord is holding back the winds. Mawe be diligent to prepare and help others preparfor the soon coming storm!
