There is a fragile membrane, a thin layer between great storms and great calms.
Calamity can become blessing in the twinkling of an eye, because in our universe, good, not evil, is the ruling principle.
In this sad world, evil is easily ruptured.
In our evil world, death can be overcome by life in the twinkling of an eye.
Internal or external trouble can be swallowed up by peace, without an obvious explanation.
It depends on who you are – fallen human or redeemed human.
It depends on who you identify with, the first Adam or the last Adam.
Shattering calamities, swallowing up troubles, overcoming death, is a matter of faith, of knowledge and of skill, not religion, not sentiment and not luck.
If I did not consider it truth, I would say this apologetically, “Jesus is peace seeking to invade our troubled worlds now.”
