Disobedience can create sinkholes in life. They may not be as drastic as the one mentioned in Numbers, but spiritual sinkholes exist as well. One can sink into caverns of rebellion when they leave the good grounds of truth and start living on the temporary surfaces of greed and self gratification. When bedrocks of doctrine erode in the hidden places of the heart; the danger of falling into pits of perversion and apostasy increase.
God can erode the underground areas beneath Satanic strongholds, swallowing them up in ground shifting moments of revival. The earlier reference to the Dead Sea’s sinkholes due to intrusion of fresh water gives us a great spiritual insight. God often attacks the hidden places of darkness with deep flows of fresh anointing. It may appear on the surface that the enemy is winning; but what takes place in the heart of the matter, in the hidden caverns of intercession and spiritual warfare influences a victorious outcome. The sinkholes of revival will open and Satan’s powerhouses of deception will come down!
