Three times my doorbell has rung at unusual times with no one there. That does not sound unusual except that people around here don’t tend to come calling at these hours.
The first time, was on Monday or Tuesday I think, around 9 pm. I was online listing items for sale when the doorbell rang once. It took me about two minutes to get to the door but no one was there and no one was outside at all. I thought it was a neighbor who didn’t wait for me so I didn’t think much of it.
Second time, I was upstairs spending too much time on unimportant things. When the doorbell rang I looked out the window but saw no one. I thought, maybe it was a solicitor who left me a brochure. Once I got downstairs and opened the door, no one and nothing was there. Then I thought, maybe neighborhood kids were playing a prank but I learned later that they weren’t actually home.
Third time, was this Monday morning around 1 am. I fell asleep on the sofa with the TV on when 4 rings in quick succession woke me like an alarm. I felt scared and I didn’t move! A show was on TV where they were discussing neuro research about how addictions cause problems with reason and judgment. The researcher emphasized any type of addiction not only drugs but also porno, gambling, and caffeine addictions cause decreased blood flow to the brain. I don’t know why that got my attention. Perhaps, it’s a topic that I should write about.
My mind thought: Is someone watching me? Is someone trying to get in? Are evil spirits trying to get inside my home? Is the Lord telling me something?
I’m worried about loosing my home and I’m late on the mortgage payments. A woman down the street just lost her home. Another woman said many times that she wanted to sell her home but she would work on that later because she had all the time in the world. She died last month and never did anything she wanted to do.
Is God telling me, “WAKE UP! You’re running out of time!” Is the home He gave me in danger of foreclosure?
Revelation 3:20 “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.” Jesus can use the doorbell if He wants.
