when you read this headline, what is your representation of this scenario?
Do you see some red colors, fire, lava perhaps, coming out of the earth or from somewhere?
Do you see something breaking open or a lock bursting or a portal opening and evil coming out?
Or do you even recall a time (hopefully not your present!) or a moment or a phase in your life when you would say hell broke loose?
Whatever you are seeing or feeling or remembering or imagining when you hear this term, I am sure it is nothing nice.
Am I right?
Well, perhaps it is nice in a way!
Not pleasant, that’s for sure.
But still good.
How can that be?
Well, when hell breaks loose other to hell being somehow contained or boxed or captivated or in control, it means that whatever and whoever is in hell, evil in my understanding, must have mustered up a lot of extra strength to get free.
Make any sense?
When someone breaks loose and when they decide that they have to, it means that their situation must have changed.
Before, they didn’t escape, try to break loose.
They were able to cope somehow, to stay in the box, cage, cell, prison where they were.
But then, they had to get out.
I mean everybody wants to get out when they are in prison.
But sometimes, some people escape or try to – same with the evil in hell.
Evil is evil, minding its business, doing its job, doing what they can to make our lives miserable and painful and frustrating… business as usual… yes?
But when hell breaks loose, something must have happened for hell to make the decision that they must break loose NOW.
Something must have changed so that their situation worstened to a degree that they were no longer able to stay in it and had to break loose.
What could that have been?
There is only one possible explanation:
our life must have become more godly, more pure, more sanctified, more holy.
Our life must have changed for the better, there must have been one or more great breakthroughs, revelations, elevations…
We must have made a huge step towards our GOD given destiny.
And the enemy hates it.
So they intensify their attacks, they gather all they have for one last blow.
That’s when hell breaks loose.
And what it looks like is that there is terror, opposition, chaos and hardships in EVERY area of our lives.
It is how the devil operates.
He intensifies the quality and the increases the quantity of his attacks – it is the only strategy he has!
It is really very simple and once you can see it, it is easy to understand.
He is using people, circumstances, trying to shake you, overwhelm you, frustrate you to an amount that you think you will never, ever get out of this or over this mess.
EVERYBODY will be against you, everything will go wrong, you will be completely alone, feel unloved, will most likely also become sick and everything will look as if your life is truly, completely over and will never, ever change for the better.
The thing that will probably “get you” the most is that offense and resistance and trouble will also come from your “safe places” and in times or situations where you are never expecting it – that’s just the consequence of the extra effort the devil makes to destroy you and it is part of the scheme.
The devil is a liar.
And do you want to know something else?
You can congratulate yourself!
Why is that you may ask?
Well, if you weren’t about to bring something great into this world, something good, something godly, a ministry, a teaching, a revelation, a “birth” of some kind, the devil wouldn’t make such a fuzz in order to hinder you and even eliminate you.
You are on the right track!
Yes, I know it is not easy.
I know this better than you can ever possibly imagine.
But what I also know is OUR GOD.
Not only will HE bring you through, HE will also reward you and show you riches that are not of this world.
Hang in there my friend, when hell breaks loose, it means that they know they have already lost.
That’s all it means.
You can see it as a tantrum if you will.
A 3 year old hellboy is literally lying on the floor kicking and screaming…
It could be funny if it wasn’t so unpleasant…
GOD is with you, my friend.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
I hope and pray that this will inspire, heal and bless you. And that THE LORD will bless you abundantly in all areas of your life, that he will keep you and shine his face upon you and bring you peace. In JESUS’ name I pray. AMEN.
