There is so much hatred in the world. A police couple was stabbed in France. An MP was assassinated in England. A young, budding pop star was sacrificed in Orlando, along with all those victims at the gay bar, Pulse.
Was what I read on Facebook true? Was one of these victims refused a funeral service at his church for being gay? Really? Wasn’t every man present at the condemning of a prostitute in Israel also found guilty of one sin or another?
There was no one who could throw a stone.
Hatred, Chaos as UK Leaves the European Union
Before we get covered and smothered with all of this rubble, before the weight of the world gets too heavy to bear, remember this: Earth holds no sorrow heaven can’t heal.
Along with this hatred is growing global chaos. The oil and mining industries are dangerously unstable. An impending financial crisis is looming. Science and technology invent and develop beyond what our minds can comprehend. Either Trump or Clinton will soon be leading America into its demise as the UK has already begun its own after leaving the European Union.
The powers that be are all around watching our every move, following us on social media. We are too busy being entertained to worry or become paranoid. What is happening?
Are we nearing the end of the world like so many religious fanatics are predicting? Or are they just making a huge profit by creating panic? Is there anyone we can trust?
Nothing Takes God by Surprise
I don’t know, but I know nothing escapes the Almighty. Nothing is hidden from His sight. He is neither startled, nor is He in a panic. He isn’t asleep, either.
In fact, if you read the bible, you might understand that by His very hand, by His very word, He sends deceiving spirits. He does this to confuse the enemy. He sends angelic superbeings to wage His wars, to conquer mighty men, to fulfill His purposes.
So don’t be frustrated. Don’t be taken back by everything you see on the news or read on social media. Don’t shrink back from the hatred all around. Stand your ground. Gear up for battle. Stop fighting with a plastic fork and grab your sword! Love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! And don’t be surprised by the fiery ordeals all around you…
