Embracing Uncertainty in the Lord:
The Key to Spiritual Flight and End Time Deliverance
Like most believers, I loathe uncertainty in life. My heart gravitates toward order, predictability and establishment. With this is an inbred tendency to fear and resist uncertainty. In contemplating an enterprise, I want to plan out as much as possible beforehand, leaving as little to chance as possible. I want to minimize my unknowable risks in life as much as I can. And there is a natural wisdom in this.
But risk and unknowability are also a part of life’s wisdom and plan. Obviously, it isn’t possible to totally eliminate the unexpected. And for believers, following the Lord brings us to face with uncertainty in a way the world does not face. Encountering uncertainty in the course of obeying the Spirit is an inescapable reality in the life of faith.
Nevertheless, while accepting this “uncertainty factor” as a fact of spiritual life, my heart has always continued to handle it by resistance: by inwardly recoiling and turning away from it. I have always looked to the Lord in faith for my direction and obeyed, no matter what the unknowable risks. But I have also used my looking to Him to try to protect me from the subconscious awareness of uncertainty beneath my faith.
Lately however, the Lord has begun dealing with me about this. My continued looking to the Lord in faith while resisting the uncertainty attending that faith has put a hidden stress on my heart that over time has become unbearable. By exposing my inner dissonance between embracing faith and resisting uncertainty, the Lord has begun changing my heart regarding uncertainty itself. In the process, He has revealed major truths to me in an end time context to share with you. For I believe I am not alone in bearing this tension, but that many of us bear it—especially as we contemplate the uncertain times ahead, the signs of impending tribulation ahead, and what our costs may be in remaining faithful to the Lord against an increasingly hostile society.
The Quest for Security: Cause and Catalyst of the Great Tribulation
The prophetic utterances of Paul and Jesus are very clear about the cause of the coming worldwide tribulation. They tell us that the quest for human security (the elimination of all risk, uncertainty and liability) will be its cause, and that this quest will catalyze the tribulation in such a way that it arrives as a trap suddenly snapping shut:
I Th. 5:3 For when they say, "Peace and safety!" then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.— Lk. 21: 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.
The word translated here as “safety” (asphaleia) is also defined as certainty and security (as in “social security” or “homeland security”). A synonym for this word (bebaiosis) means confirmation or making sure—relatable to the Hebrew Old Testament concept of contract “surety” through the striking of hands (what we today call “insurance”).
In other words, Paul is saying that when the world becomes motivated by the demand for total human security and insurance from all risk, it will catalyze a tribulation of worldwide tyranny that will fall suddenly on the earth. The Lord calls this tribulation a “snare” (ie, a trap). The concept of snare is important because it identifies the quest for absolute security as a front for a hidden agenda (i.e., a conspiracy toward world slavery which lies behind the enticement to world security).
If you are astute, then you can recognize that I am putting into words something you already know to be true, but perhaps could not define about world political developments. Today all domestic legislative policy in the West is driven toward one purpose—the reduction and elimination of all risk, uncertainty and liability. It does not matter what political party is campaigning, the promises are the same. Only the approaches to achieving the ends differ.
Every demagogue is consumed with appeasing the public with promises of financial security, social security, homeland security and universal health insurance. This drive, which began in earnest in the 1930’s has become so massive that the legal and insurance professions are now virtually indistinguishable and form the essence of western government.
Importantly, with each legislation of increased security comes an incremental decrease in personal liberty, whether it be the requirement to wear seat belts, to carry an insurance card to get a job or drive a car, or the simple inability to carry a pair of nail clippers onto an airplane. The final price of total security is open slavery under tyranny.
But the West is oblivious to this. That’s because at the same time, the West has been deceived into redefining liberty as security. Therefore it still believes it is free, seeing every security measure as a “protection of liberty,” even though personal liberty is evaporating before everyone’s eyes. The West has been graduating toward security-based tyranny masked as liberty for several generations now, and it is only a matter of time before the trap of overt tyranny is sprung in earnest, revealing the Great Tribulation.
Escaping the Trap through Spiritual Flight
Pr. 1:17 Surely, in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
It’s at this point that my own personal lessons regarding faith and uncertainty come into play. I’ll explain in a moment. First, I want to tie some other revelational concepts together.
Immediately after his statement about the end time worldwide snare, Jesus offers a word of exhortative encouragement:
36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
The Lord tells us that through preparatory watchful prayer there is a way to escape this coming snare / trap of worldwide security-based tyranny. Now, He does not actually tell us how it can be escaped. But other prophetically applied scripture does tell us how to escape. In this mind, please consider Proverbs 1:17 above.
Solomon tells us that a bird can easily escape the trap of a net laid in its sight. Why is the bird able to escape the trap? It’s because of the difference between where the bird is and where the trap is. The trap is laid on the ground, or perhaps on a grounded tree. But the bird is in the air. An earthly trap cannot be sprung on an airborne bird.
Now there is extreme prophetic significance to all this, and your spirit should already have it. The trap of Proverbs 1:17 answers to the snare of Luke 21:34-35. It pictures the Great Tribulation sprung through the “peace and safety” agenda. (If you’re really sharp, you will realize that government actually refers to the social security system as a “safety net.” Ha Ha.) The bird however pictures those of Luke 21:36—that is, those who have found the grace to escape the disguised “safety net” through some type of flight. The question then is, “What is this flight?” How can we fly so as to escape this trap of tyranny being laid before our very eyes?
Please don’t jump to conclusions here. Some will immediately think I will identify this flight as the rapture of the church. Now, to be clear, I do believe that some believers will be translated prior to that time and thus be able to “fly” in that way to escape. But that is not what I am referring to nor is it what the Lord has revealed to me about this. The truth is that, despite any initial manifestation of the rapture, most believers will still be here during the Tyranny.
Yet we must believe that a way to escape by flight is still possible for those who give themselves to watchful prayer, even if they are not translated. Don’t forget, the prophetic woman of Rev. 12 is given “wings to fly” into the desert as a way of escape during the tribulation:
12:14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
See, the “woman” (who represents the church) is still on earth, yet can fly, and so is delivered from the tyrannical World Security Regime. What kind of flight then is available to us for escaping the Trap while still living on the earth?
Isa. 40:31 tells us that those who wait on the Lord will “mount up with wings like eagles.” All these pictures of believers in flight as birds describe a flight of the spirit above the tribulations of the earth. The Bible consistently draws a contrast between the earth and the heavens (sky) as a prophetic contrast between the things of natural man and a very present spiritual reality that surrounds man. The sky therefore into which we are to fly is a spiritual sky and the flight we are to take is a spiritual flight.
It will be by means of spiritual flight borne of watchful prayer (waiting on the Lord) that we are to be given our means of escape when the Tyranny appears in earnest. It is because we can spiritually fly that the earthly Net will be laid in vain for us!
“But can you be more specific? Just what is this ‘spiritual flight’ or ability to ‘spiritually fly’?” Simply, it is the ability to so spiritually perceive the word and leading of the Holy Spirit, the Breath of God under our wings, that we will be able to move in the Spirit with such obliviousness to the surrounding pressures of the Tyranny and with such sensitivity to the Spirit’s saving directives that we are delivered from (“escape”) those “security-enforced” laws, injunctions, shortages, rationings, pestilences, etc that will be the rule of that day.
During the Tyranny, the times will be desperate beyond description! But for those with the adequately developed “deadness” to this life in favor of sensitivity to the Spirit and only to the Spirit, there will be a constant open “flight path” of direction and provision.
Know this: there will be ways to buy and sell outside the beast system. But only for those Spirit-aware enough to know how to recognize them and unlock them. There will be miracles of healing for those who can no longer access the beast’s hospital system—but only for those who have the adequately developed Spirit-faith to obtain and receive it! Believe me (no, believe HIM), the provision WILL be there, the escape WILL be there, we WILL indeed fly—and the trap will have no effect on us! It will be spread in vain in our sight.
Understand this well. The Spirit is the “Air of God” surrounding our lives here on the earth. Therefore it is as we dwell in the Spirit of God, who is the Air of God, that we are safe above and outside the Trap laid on earth among men. Woe to those who do not know how to fly in that day!
There’s just one little thing left, though. We need wings! Without wings, ie, developed wings, we can’t fly. Until we do, the Air is useless to save us. How then do we get these wings??
Embrace of Divine Uncertainty: The Key to Spiritual Flight
Some time ago I received a prophecy through a lady who I did not know. The Lord accurately identified through her that I was an engineer, and then proceeded to tell me that He was going to “engineer a change” concerning me and “push me out of my nest.” I took this to mean God was going to change my job, and that I was going to be out again somehow on my own, and of course that would mean uncertainty, and of course, I wouldn’t like that. Dutifully I accepted the prophecy, believing it to be true, even though not overjoyed about the prospect of another move, another possible period of no visible resources, etc., etc. (You know the feeling!)
Over the next two years, uncertainties did begin unfolding in my job. The job location moved farther from home resulting in a pay cut. Then more major uncertainties. Entire departments were let go. I was told I would be next. But I never was. Yet my entire existence became a twilight of uncertainty—kind of like living on death row. This increasing uncertainty grew and grew. It came to be that each time a new uncertainty about anything arose—anything that rocked my boat—I began to break under the pressure. I would even lose my temper at times trying to “stay in the Lord.” (Sorry to confess that to you!)
In all things I unflinchingly trusted the Lord enough not to try to make my own way in things. I obeyed the Spirit in what to do, or in following any leading. I did nothing to try to save myself out of a core fear. Nevertheless, there was something still in me at issue. I still maintained that internal wall against the fact of the uncertainties. I looked to the Lord in all things I could see, but looked to Him for one thing too much…
I wanted the Lord to hide me from the uncertainty factor. I didn’t want to face it. And I was looking to Him to “make it go away”—to just somehow vaporize it out of my awareness. But it never went away, only grew worse in my sub-psyche. The more I trusted Him amid the circumstances while resisting the uncertainty of the circumstances, the more subconscious stress I entertained. Finally, we took a badly needed vacation. A week later, after several words from the Spirit, there came a really critical word and revelation:
“Embrace the uncertainty.”
As the words came from deep within, so did the picture from the now two-year-old prophecy—the picture of the eaglet being pushed out of the nest. In a flash, I was made to know that the past prophecy about the eaglet was not about the job per se, or any of the circumstances. It was about my secret attitude toward uncertainty itself! When an eaglet is pushed from a nest, even though it cannot fly, it must embrace the air with all the uncertainty which air represents. An eaglet cannot fly and simultaneously resist the uncertain nature of the air in which he flies! To embrace the air, he must embrace its uncertain invisible nature.
That was the Lord’s word to me—to no longer resist the uncertainties in the sidelines of looking to Him for direction, but to embrace them as part of embracing Him. Only by embracing the uncertainties can I truly learn to fly in the Spirit. To embrace the air, I must embrace the uncertainty of its nature. I can’t embrace the air without embracing its nature! And that is what I was inwardly trying to do—without realizing it. Now I understood that the change the Lord wanted to “engineer” was one in my own heart. At each conscious moment of uncertainty I am now learning to say, “I welcome you, uncertainty.”
Overcoming the Conflicting Natures of Air and Land Security
It was out of my own personal struggle and revelation regarding uncertainty that the Lord gave this greater macro revelation about the end, and this word for the Body of Christ. In order for any of us to escape the imminent earthbound Security-Tyranny regime through Air-flight into the Spirit, we have to learn now how to follow the Lord by embracing uncertainty outside the nest, trusting Him to catch us underneath and keep bringing us back up for another trial flight—until we are so secure in our embrace of the Air’s uncertainty that we can finally confidently testify, “I know how to fly.”
The difficulty is that the natures of security on earth and security in the air are diametrically opposed. To learn security in the Air, one must shun the security of the earth. We cannot have two sources of security and survive what’s coming. There’s no “half beast / half eagle” solution here. It will not work. We will either be all eagle, or else succumb like ants to the trampling beast.
In practical terms, this means if we are to escape the final Security-Tyranny trap before it is sprung on us—if we are to fly by the Spirit’s security then, we must learn NOW how to give up the various human security programs that have nurtured us all our lives—as well as the security of our incomes, our possessions and our dwelling places to follow the Lord.
To the degree we are legally empowered and spiritually enabled, we must seek the Lord about how to start giving up our ties to governmentally provisioned “benefits” and “insurance” policies of every kind. (The more socialized your country, the more difficult this will be.) We must begin to recognize and reject the liability-free “entitlement” mentality into which our generations have been born. Only by becoming divested of dependency on the welfare schemes of the earthly “peace and safety machine” and embracing the uncertainty that comes with doing so can we take Spirit-flight ahead of the Trap now being laid in the name of “protected liberty.”
For added context, it is important here to recognize the cultural season that is upon the West. The foundations of the nations of North America and the Outback were laid by pioneers. Pioneers are risk takers without natural insurance and fallbacks. The natural liberty established in these nations is due in part to the high risk-taking nature of the pioneering founders—men who had little to no natural securities on which to rely for sustenance and protection from calamity.
In our season however, the pioneering nature has been replaced by the liability-free “Security and Entitlement” mentality. Most people today have never known anything but enjoyment of blessings purchased by others, and have been deceived to believe they are somehow “owed” the “right” to them. It’s because the pioneer spirit has been replaced by the entitlement spirit that the shadow liberty of the West will finally return to tyranny before the Lord’s Kingdom of True Liberty finally manifests. No superficial token “revival” on the face of the culture is going to change this.
What About the Promise of Establishment?
I have to admit to you that one of the great mental blocks keeping me from embracing uncertainty underneath faith has been the fact that I’ve also had many promises and prophecies of fruitful establishment in the earth—family establishment…business establishment…dwelling establishment. Not having obtained all of these, and continuing to actively believe for them, it was psychologically contrary to me to also accept and embrace uncertainty. “How can I accept uncertainty if God has promised to establish me? Establishment speaks only of certainty, and God’s promises are certain!”
Before answering this problem, let’s get mature about something. God’s will for our earthly destiny involves both establishment and disestablishment. Too many of us accept only one of these realities or the other. Most prophetic believers embrace only the promises of establishment. And the scriptures are full of them. Indeed, establishment is the legitimate God-breathed cry of every human heart. Consequently, it’s hard to find prophecies in the dominant prophetic circles that admit of any kind of disestablishment.
On the other hand, a fewer number embrace only the predictions of disestablishment. Their lives revolve about the Biblical “promises” of earthly trial, scattering, uncertain roaming, and persecution that attend true discipleship. Reacting to the majority error, this “John-the-Baptist”-styled stream may deny the legitimacy of any promise or prophecy of prosperous earthly establishment from the Lord, even though it is the God-breathed cry of their own stifled hearts. “Unless you are living hand-to-mouth out of a car somewhere between engagements preaching the gospel on street corners and being chased off by police, I cannot consider you to be a true disciple!” (sure…)
It’s time for us to outgrow these partial visions of God’s heart and mature into receiving both realities as part of the pattern designed for us. While our truest establishment is not in this world, and we must pass through “many tribulations” (disestablishments) here to obtain it, it is not true that God wills no prosperous establishment of any kind in this world! To the contrary, Jesus promises that those who suffer disestablishment for Him now will find a return establishment “now—in this present time” as well as in the world to come (Mk. 10:30; Lk. 18:30).
The problem though is in how to reconcile these contrary realities into our vision for our present destiny. We’re back to the question, “How can my faith embrace both uncertainty—a mark of disestablishment—and the promise of God to establish me here and now?” Because I hadn’t reconciled this internally, I resisted the uncertainty beneath my faith for establishment.
But the Lord also answered this through the prophecy about the eaglet. (In honesty, it was my wife who actually saw it before I did.) The answer is that, eaglets cannot build nests! Only mature eagles—birds that can already fly—can also build nests. By interpretation, only those who first learn to “fly” by embracing the uncertainties of faith become capable of entering into the “nested” establishment that the Lord has eventually promised them. In fact, because this is so, to resist uncertainty now is to actually hinder our progress toward the establishment God has promised!
In the end, the two realities are not contradictory to our faith. They are necessary to one another.
Establishment during the Great Tribulation (GT): Is it Possible?
The issue of divine earthly establishment versus embracing uncertainty in light of our larger topic of the Great Tribulation opens up an interesting side question worth touching: “With the trap of the Great Tribulation so near, how am I ever to embrace any promise of personal establishment here and now?”
Because of the horrific nature of the coming Security-Tyranny, it has been—for those honest and brave enough to believe Christians will pass through it—it has been pretty psychologically impossible to envision any kind of prosperous establishment for believers at all during that period. Again, the concepts of “Great Tribulation” and “Prosperous Establishment” appear absolutely antithetical. When thinking of the tribulation, we can think of nothing but martyrdom and on-the-run deprivation. (The Spirit has trained us well.)
Those who sense the “GT” is very near, yet have received prophetic promises of establishment, have been at a loss for how to hold these beliefs together. Because of the impending darkness, some have felt pressed to abandon their prophecies—maybe to even deny them as “false.” Others have denied the GT, calling it an “illusion of the devil” and proclaiming a wishful “kingdom now” theology—though deep inside, their gut knows they are “whistling Dixie.”
The truth however is that, just as the uncertainties of our personal faith walk are not antithetical to divine earthly establishment, neither will the GT prove antithetical to it. The Great Tribulation—despite its theme of “world peace and security”—will be the most uncertain, insecure time the world has ever known. The extreme embrace by saints of extreme uncertainty in that hour will prove to work an extreme earthly establishment dovetailing with manifest establishment of the Lord’s very Kingdom on earth! This establishment amidst chaos will prove to fulfill the prophecies of establishment received by many now. It’s just that this establishment will be of an entirely different and advanced order than what is presently known in society.
Right now, as eaglets who have not learned to fly, when we think of establishment, we can think only in terms of the nest we are in now. That is, we can think only of what we have now in society here in the West. And since we know the Great Tribulation will not allow to us the kind of established nest we have now in society, we don’t see how there can be any nest for us at all.
But the “Tribulation-Era Nest” God will build for and through us as matured eagles during the coming evil will not look like the nest we currently know. What it will look like, I cannot tell. But what I do know is that the promises of God for establishment are not contrary to the predictions of God for Great Tribulation. What I also know is that, the protected establishment God has for us amidst the Great Tribulation will only be found as we first embrace the uncertainties of present disestablishments now as eaglets.
As long as we cling to the societal nest we are in now, and fail to learn to fly by embracing faith’s uncertainties contrary to the present human security systems, we will not have a nest in the wilderness in the evil day—we will not have the wings to fly there as part of the Rev. 12 woman—and our present societal nest will close in on us like the “Venus Fly Trap” Jesus prophesied. And in that horrible case, we will either renounce our faith altogether, or be martyred outside God’s perfect will, or die due to the deprivations.*
[*Note: martyrdom and death due to deprivation is not the de facto perfect will of God for all Tribulation saints. If it were, the Lord would not have encouraged us to pray for escape from the Tribulation nor provided the Rev. 12 woman wings to escape the serpent’s wrath!]
Exhortations Regarding the Insurance Industry
This article cannot be complete without returning more deeply to the issue of insurance. Insurance is something we’ve grown up with in our generations. We were born into it (our parents enrolled us into the governmental social insurance systems set up in the early 20th century, or we were forced to enroll in them if we wanted a job.) Insurance was legally mandated into the automobile system, so we have always had liability car insurance. Now the insurance industry has also taken over the health care profession—to the point of now being mandated in some countries and states.
Insurance is now available for just about anything, and the industry has done an extremely good job of converting us to its “faith” in God’s inability to provide for and protect mankind, as well as to replace the role of the community of faith in helping support one another in times of distress (something that the Amish and some Mennonites still exemplify.)
What everyone should know however is that the principle of insurance is condemned in the Old Testament, specifically in the Book of Proverbs. Solomon repeatedly warns against the concept of “surety” for strangers—which is the principle on which all insurance is based. (See Pr. 6:1-5; 11:15; 17:18; 20:16; 22:28-27; 27:13. And remember that, as a king, Solomon is speaking from a national governmental perspective.)
In these Proverbs, Solomon speaks directly to the would-be Insurer. But the warning is against an entire principle and so applies equally to the would-be Insured as well as the Insurer! According to Solomon, the principle of insurance breeds bankruptcy. Further examination shows it also breeds contractual fraud and distrust.
To evade making good on insurance pledges, Insurers cheat their policy holders through legal loopholes in policy language. And to avoid paying premiums and/or to cash in on policies, insured parties make false claims and/or commit insurance fraud through destroying insured assets. The costs of the legal bureaucratic red tape associated with this mutual fraud force costs to skyrocket for all, leading to the bankrupting of the “insured” industry or economy infested by it.
This cycle of fraud and distrust and the fruit of community destruction is inherent in the nature of the insurance principle. Once the cycle begins, it is extremely difficult to stop. And if it comes to infest the bloodstream of an entire nation or culture, like any lethal cancer it spells the death of that culture, apart from a miracle of divine intervention.
Ultimately, insurance is the betting against God’s ability to protect and provide for man in times of distress. It is inimical to faith. (Ironically, I was once part of a church called “Faith” whose primary leadership and financial backing came from men employed in and dedicated to the insurance industry.)
By contrast, David expresses his pure trust in the Lord alone as his surety:
Ps. 4:8 I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety—110:122 Be surety for Your servant for good; Do not let the proud oppress me.
Please note again the connection between “peace,” “safety” and “surety” in these verses. They mean the same thing, and apply to Paul’s word about peace and safety. “Safety” and “surety” mean insurance. “Peace” means “peace of mind”—as is promised by the insurance companies. David is telling us that these security qualities can only be found in the Lord, not by third party human Insurers. (Where do you think Solomon got his wisdom on this one?)
Proverbs 6:1-5 wraps up the prophetic connection between the insurance industry and our end time escape from the Security-Tyranny:
1 My son, if you become surety for your friend, If you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger, 2 You are snared by the words of your mouth; You are taken by the words of your mouth. 3 So do this, my son, and deliver yourself; For you have come into the hand of your friend: Go and humble yourself; Plead with your friend. 4 Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids. 5 Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.
Notice that the snare or trap is referred to as “the words of your own mouth.” In other words, by prophetic application, the end time Security-Tyranny is a snare of our own making. “We the people” are setting the trap for ourselves because we are the ones ignorantly signing all the contracts and taking out all the policies that exchange liberty for security!
But notice that there is a way of escape (“deliverance”). The possibility is there. What is it? Solomon is prophetically telling the end time saints to go “plead with your friend”—meaning, while you can—any way you legally can—get out of the insurance contract! Notice he then says, “Give no sleep to you your eyes.” This beautifully mirrors Paul who, after warning of the coming tyrannical security destruction, says,
I Th. 5:4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
So, just like Jesus and Paul, now Solomon too prophesies “Wake up!” to the end time saints. “Get out of your insurance dependency.” And in so doing, “deliver yourself…like a bird from the hand of the fowler.” Solomon is giving us the exact formula for spiritual flight up and away from the end time Trap.
Closing Exhortation and Encouragement
What does all this mean for us? And what is the lesson of this article?
The lesson here is that we should all start examining how the Lord wants to start divorcing us now from our inherent trust in the human security and insurance programs we have indentured ourselves into—if we are to have any hope of learning to fly in time to escape the Trap shortly to be sprung on the earth. And to do this, we must learn to embrace the uncertainty attending such contemplations.
As society’s security blanket continues descending on us all, I earnestly exhort you to seek the Lord about your ties to the present security systems. Let him awaken you to what is really happening to your country. Next, determine like David to give yourself to His surety alone. (Here’s a great place to become a Davidic worshipper in deed as well as in song.) In all this, let him lead you in the specific details of the hows and whens of giving up your governmental benefits programs and insurance policies. I have only given you principles. The Spirit must lead you in their timely specific applications.
Of course, as our central theme has already observed, the big psychological hurdle involved in acting obediently on these things is dealing with the power of uncertainty. But that is why I have given you my testimony. If you have the conviction from the Lord to act on a matter, but subconscious uncertainty is dogging your otherwise steadfast but stressed faith, let me encourage you to embrace the uncertainty. See it as your friend, not your enemy.
Remember that uncertainty is the nature of the Air in which we aspire to fly. Picture yourself embracing that “airy nothingness” of the Spirit as the eaglet falling from the nest! Keep stepping out and keep embracing the uncertainty as you do, flapping to capture it as you go—always remembering that “underneath are the everlasting arms.”
If you start doing this now and keep doing it, you will learn to fly…you will mount up with wings like eagles to that protected place in the desert, and—raptured or not—
…you will escape the end time Trap laid in vain in your sight!
