It's a madhouse!!!

So says Charlton Heston in the 1970’s movie, Planet of the Apes upon realizing he was on earth in a future time when talking apes ruled the planet.So says Charlton Heston in the 1970’s movie, Planet of the Apes upon realizing he was on earth in a future time when talking apes ruled the planet.On one hand we have the futurists with their constant denial of the obvious time texts. They contort and fabricate strange scenarios to fit their end times fatalistic fantasies.
(Let us not forget, we were futurists at one time)
On the other hand we have the godless atheists who could care a less about all of our little theological squabbles. To them it is all rubbish, down to whether Jesus came back in 70 A.D. or is yet to return. They live out their lives with little to no regard for these things and seem no less tormented (at least not in the here and now).
We should not become elitists, thinking we are the only ones that know what’s going on.
But is this really a madhouse world where nothing can ever be known for certain? Where what seems clear is to be questioned and distorted to infinity? Doesn’t it just make you want to run out into the street yelling the same phrase that Heston so dramatically uttered with the precise anguish? – “It’s a madhouse!!! A madhouse!!!”
I pray to God that if this really is a Reformation that He is bringing about, that He help us all keep our sanity while we are labeled everything under the sun. While we are left feeling like little lonesome Elijahs. While we struggle with self doubt and feelings of seclusion. God help us. Carry us. Be as the Pillar of Smoke and Fire that led your people through the wilderness. Be as the ever present Light shinning without the aid of the sun or moon.
