The whole town of Paradise California is now gone, burned (for the most part) to the ground. And this includes the home in which my son's fiance grew up, and the town in which, up until a week ago, lived in. They are now homeless, along with everyone else in town. In addition, due to the intense smoke from the fire, and the stress from losing their home, Erica's father had a severe stroke the day before yesterday, and is now in the hospital in Chico, where he will be until further notice. It is hard to imagine how people cope with such tragedy, but they do. All of this because of a massive fire that might have been avoided, or at least mitigated with better planning and forest maintainance by the state. The people of Paradise did not expect a fire to destroy their town, nor did they anticipate the intensity with which the fire burned, and the speed at which the fire traveled in destroying their homes and businesses.
Most Christians today are in a spiritual condition where they are feeling comfortable and cozy in the 'town' of their church, believing that God will not allow them to suffer the fires of the judgement because they have been saved by grace through faith. They believe this because that is a lot easier and more comfortable to believe than the idea of having to go through the process of being sanctified through the words of Jesus; words that require obedience to the Law of the Covenant of the Kingdom.
Little to they realize that they will have to go through a fire cleansing one way or another, either through the fire of the Holy Spirit and the words of God which they will cleansed from ALL unrighteousness by doing the truth, or the fire that will destroy the unrighteousness still in them, along with their very being, in the second death. Both of these cleansings are permanent and irrevocable; one leading to eternal death, the other leading to eternal life.
