    Dear Timothy; the Lord is fanning His threshing floor to drive out the chaff and show the wheat. Also in Psalm 92 it says that the "springing of the wicked" was a sign of their imminent and eternal destruction. All these things coming to pass, yet they will not know, and will not repent! But the wise shall know, and prepare their hearts and their ways, as those who are about to stand before Him.
