In looking at the headlines today I see much is going on. There are demonstrations and riots but when they, the demonstrators, are asked “why” those participating don’t seem to have a concrete answer. They submit some generic excuse for bad behavior most of which is hate espousing and the inquiring reporter moves on. Perhaps the reporter is smarter than any of us in knowing there isn’t any wise reason to dig deeper into an empty well.
In London, a car rams a group of people near the Parliament. In Italy, a bridge collapses. In South Africa white farmers are being murdered by blacks for the simple reason they are white. And to top it off, Boco Haram, the Muslim terrorist group situated in Nigera, Chad, Niger and Cameroon – you know, the group that kidnaps Christian girls and forces them to be their wives or kills them – yes, that group, a part of ISIS. They are so noble that they recently outlawed plastic bags as being non-environmental friendly!
In the meantime, in the United States, the western portion of the country, namely California, Oregon and Washington are burning. Miles and miles of beautiful land either have burned or are burning and we wonder why. Really? California has been the seat of much spiritual activity that isn’t pro-God or pro-Jesus but the absolute opposite. California is burning and there doesn’t seem to be much they can do to stop it. Yet California continues to dry up rivers by allowing their waters to rush into the Pacific Ocean all in the name of saving the declining numbers of ‘winter-run Chinook salmon’. What ever that is, it is apparently more important to save that fish than to provide adequate water to keep the farms running and water flowing to the people of California.
In Israel, there is an insane situation going on where kites, once the simple toys of children, have become incendiary bombs floating freely above the protective barriers from Gaza into Israel with payloads of Molotov cocktails that ignite upon impact setting acres upon acres of vital farmland and forests on fire. In addition to that, there have been so many rockets lobbed into Israel from Gaza that it is easy to lose count. Those who have the ‘red alert’ program on their cell phones hear them going off again and again, all night long. The object is to disturb Israelis from their sleep, depriving them of rest and setting these floating bombs off during high traffic times causing dangerous confusion on the already congested highways. Hatred is the wind that fans the flames that are designed to destroy a country the PA, Hamas and Hezbollah claim they love so much and want back so badly. Yeah, right!
Israel seems to be sitting paralyzed, doing nothing other than targeted strikes into Gaza where they pinpoint the location of Hama’s headquarters, send in a smart rocket and take it out without hurting anything else. Unfortunately, it seems a great deal of Hama’s leaders managed to escape from these rocket attacks. So what will stop it? Certainly not the UN. Certainly not the feeble, flimsy cease fire issue by Egypt. Only an all out and out war where Israel finally attacks Gaza and wipes out – completely – Hamas, Hezbollah and the PA. That is the only way Israel will ever have the peace she gave up the Gaza strip for.
I could go on and on but the point is, the world is out of control. Idiots in Washington calling each other names. Vitriolic reporters asking hostile and pointed questions in the White House Briefing Room so they can get their faces on camera. Former employees of the White House who are coming forth with blatant lies about their leadership just to get more media coverage for their self-centered 15 minutes of fame.
Where does it all end?
Only God knows that. Could it be this hate filled world we now live in will lead to the return of the Lord or will He turn His back on us in disgust? It is time, really time, that the world repented while there is anything left to hang on to.
