The Word of God tells us that a civilization collapses from within; one person at a time, like a pebble tossed into a peaceful lake, causing a ripple effect that creates a disturbance across the entire surface of the water. However before the peaceful water can be altered, the pebble must cause it to lose its stability.
“…For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:6 b-8)
Once the water has become unstable, a chain reaction begins that cannot be stopped or controlled. Only time or a miracle, some intervention from God Himself, can restore peace to the water.
People are double minded and unstable everyday and yet, somehow, we have been able (for the most part) to avoid the more obvious consequences of this instability. But this does not prove that consequences are not on the way.
History has recorded the dramatic collapse of previous countries and civilizations, which eventually over time have been able to rebuild and recover. So we may erroneously conclude that collapse comes and goes and will do so forever. But God has revealed that some time in the near future the inhabitants of planet Earth will experience a worldwide collapse of civilization, which will be so catastrophic that it will require the personal intervention of God Himself in order to rebuild and recover.

If society collapses, you can bet that the foods the pioneers ate will become dietary staples
Double mindedness could also be called, “indecisiveness,” “confusion,” or “chaos.” The Bible tells us that confusion is “of the devil” because it is contrary to the necessary order God has established to maintain human life. So we can conclude that double mindedness is like an illness, very similar to mental illness that requires God’s method of healing in order to recover.
When considering any illness and what is required to make someone “whole,” we must also consider all of the dimensions of the body that may be involved and contributing to illness. The dimensions which comprise the whole person include the spirit, body, mind, and emotions. Therefore it is wise to address each dimension and discover the role it may be playing in each specific illness.
God has created the body to heal itself, when it is given what it needs to function properly. Originally the environment in which we live and the food God created for us to eat were specifically designed to meet these needs. However over time, the integrity of our food and environment have been altered and degraded so we must now supplement in order to meet the needs of the body and remain healthy.
Therefore, when we address double mindedness, we must not address it solely as a problem that exists within the mind. The Word of God tells us that “double mindedness” can originate in the spirit and manifest itself through indecisiveness, confusion, and chaos. So if we desire to heal the mind, we must also address the spirit, body, and emotions in order to discover what is needed to heal.
Considering the spiritual dimension, if double mindedness leads ultimately to collapse and self-destruction, then we must pursue the opposite of double mindedness. That is “single mindedness.”
What is single mindedness?
If double mindedness is indecisiveness, confusion, and chaos, single mindedness must be based on decisiveness, order, and peace. If we follow after decisiveness, order, and peace, we will eventually be led to Truth. This Truth (with a capital “T”) is not the conflicting “truths” based on the confusing and chaotic changing presumptions and opinions of the world, but the Truth grounded in one absolute Truth provided by the One True God who created all things and ordained how everything created should function and be maintained.
God Himself is the only one who is qualified to provide genuine, absolute Truth. “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” (Romans 3:4)
Since Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and since He is also the Living Word of God in the flesh, the only way we can find life and avoid the double mindedness that leads to self-destruction and the collapse of civilization is to embrace the Truth of God’s Word.
Perhaps it is not too late and the collapse can still be avoided by following 2 Chronicles 7:14 which gives us the promise of God that He will intervene, if His people will turn from their wicked ways. But maybe it is already too late and He knows that His people, as a whole, will not repent.
Even if the pebble has already been cast into the water and it is not possible to avoid the coming collapse, we can still personally repent (denounce and turn from) going our own way and submit to the preeminence and absolute Word of our Creator, God Almighty. Clinging to God and His Word is the only way we will be able to personally endure to the end and be eternally saved, while the world around us is being destroyed.
God Himself has promised that He will intervene to rebuild and restore what has been destroyed through human selfishness and rebellion. Those who genuinely love Him and His Word will inherit the new heaven and earth.
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” (John 14:1-3)
Believing in Jesus Christ means accepting what He says as the preeminent standard for Truth. When we entrust our eternal lives to Him, we will one day receive all that He has promised.
We have His Word on it:
“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35)

Because we will show you America’s natural nuclear bunkers that are also EMP proof. When the sirens start wailing, all you need to do is pick the closest one to your home, where you can take cover before it hits.

The eternal standard against which all things must be judged.
But man is a fallen creature; and those who have not been saved from the wrath to come will continue on the broad downwards path.
As to being “already too late”, God’s purposes will always be fulfilled; and He has sworn by Himself that all these things must come to pass.
“Only he that hindereth will continue to hinder, until he be taken out of the way” – and he has been taken out of the way.
Wickedness is now ubiquitous; and Judgement is therefore coming.
Let he that hath ears to hear, hear.
Powerful serving of the bread of life… thank you and God Bless!
Thank you for this post, and I agree with every word of it…and every Word of God. For me it is Christ, not religion. I have witnessed miracles and without God saving me from evil events I’d be dead, literally. Further, God inspired me to author a trilogy of novels based on Luke 15 Parable of the Prodigal Son, called The Prodigal Band Trilogy. Will follow your blog now.
Thanks for this post and I agree with every word of it and every Word of God. For me it is Christ, not religion. Have had miracles in my life and saved twice from death by Will of God, Who inspired me to author a trilogy based on Luke 15 Parable of the prodigal son, called The Prodigal Band Trilogy. Will follow your blog.
The Word. How dare anyone challenge Him and His Word. We have been given His life, His love and the war that is beginning to play out in Ukraine is how they thank Him. How dare they willfully and maliciously do Satan’s work while knowing they’re responsible for so much loss of life on Earth. They must be stopped.
Beautifully stated! I had forgotten the power of the pebble.
