Psalm 11 asks the question: what happens if you find yourself living in a society in a world in which the foundations have been destroyed? What do you do?
You have two options:
- One of them is to flee like a bird to the mountains,
- The other is to trust in the Lord and to make known His righteousness.
If you choose option 2, you may risk coming under attack from the evil one, but the Lord will defend you.
Sometimes I think of it, you know, I’ve reached a stage in my life where I could actually quit everything and leave London and go and find somewhere quiet and forget about all this preaching about the last days, and stop telling people about the judgments that are coming, and stop talking about that which might get me into trouble.
Let’s flee from it, let’s be free from the situation and have a peaceful life. A good option, don’t you agree?
On the other hand, I won’t do it because I want to trust in the Lord and to do His will, and to make known His message.
There is a cost in doing that. You may be attacked by the wicked and you may have opposition. But if the opposition comes, we have to trust in the Lord, and He will deal with it.
