Day and night, night and day ... so it is in nature, and so it has been with the history of man since the time of creation.
God blesses us with a time of Light and we turn again to darkness, and day is followed by night down through the ages.
The unravelling of the world 100 years ago in the First World War was only the ending of a decay.
The old system had reached its end and had no answers for the world around.
There was no workable replacement.
In the preceding years over half a dozen national leaders had been murdered by anarchists ...the "activists" of their time...from President McKinley in USA to Tsar Alexander the Second of Russia.
Royalty, prime ministers and presidents, fell under the onslaught in different countries.
A century later our world is in the same place - a place where there are no answers.
Darkness has descended again, and around us chaos reigns ... and our leaders find no response, no solution, no way forward.
The music of an ordered world has given place to dissonance ... clashes of conflict, without the resolution of order.
Darkness blinds us in our searching, and we are unable to find our way out, or find reason.
Only in God is there Light and without Him all must ever fall apart.
In the darkness He finds His own, and His own can find Him awaiting.
Push on, Beloved, through the darkness...He is your Light.
He rose again to bring us "out of darkness into His marvellous Light" ( 1 Peter 2.9)
This is our Journey and this is our goal.
