Like a Drunkard

The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and be removed like a cottage; Isaiah 24:20

Surely we don't mean the whole physical planet. This passage couldn't be literal. The spiritualizers must find a non literal meaning for this part of Isaiah. Or better yet, ignore it entirely.

If we are now in the kingdom of God, such a drastic fate surely cannot be in store for the planet. Why, it's a matter of our faulty theology vs. the Bible, and we know how that will come out. I was in such a church for a while, though I never honored their "kingdom now" interpretation.

For those who see the Earth as in store for just such a physical upheaval, we find support for this catastrophic event in--of all places--physical science, both past and future. Only these folks refer to such an occurance as a "pole shift" and not only champion such a shift, but maintain that one is due any time now.

For one who studies and believes Bible prophecy, the Earth is a seething instability of physical change. In the history of geology we find that the original scientists believed the Bible, and positing violence on a world wide scale was not at all contrary to the physical evidence they discovered. These original scientists were aptly named "catastrophists".

With the progression toward atheism there arose a school of thought called "uniformatism". Isn't it amazing how these latter deniers of the Word resemble the men Peter described who claimed there never was a flood? Many would say that Bible theology makes for bad science. But I say that bad science makes bad theology.

More and more, even unbelievers, see that the globe is fated for great violence, including the well documented pole shift. Since I believe Isaiah, speaking through the Holy Spirit, was right, I recommend that those who are left behind at the Rapture, invest in East-West compasses.
