Summary: Sweet peace the gift of God’s love.
Peace Peace When There Is No Peace
The latest violence in the Mid-East has gotten everyone in an uproar and some are talking about Armageddon while others are screaming for peace and cease fires. I find it interesting that the Secretary General of the UN could have been called Kofi Anonymous while suicide bombers were killing civilians in Israel but when the Israel had enough and started fighting back then he gets vocal. How sweet. Most of the UN is made up of countries that hate the US so I say we need to kick them out of NY. Let them build a new building in Germany or Moscow. The crime rate in NYC would go way down as criminals that are diplomatically immune leave. Trying to get a consensus from your enemies is not only foolish but very dangerous. If we sought God’s will rather than the will of the UN we would be much more prosperous and secure than we are now.
If I weren’t a Christian, I would say that we just need to back off and let the Israelis solve their problem. I have a coworker that says the answer to every problem is quantities of high explosives. From a human perspective, that might be fairly accurate. Two nukes and Japan backed off. Two strategically delivered today might alleviate some issues but only temporarily. Israel could conquer every country over there and stop the chaos for a time. However, since I know the future of Israel and that region I know that will not happen but they for sure will not be totally destroyed as is the desire of its neighbors and the UN.
24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. KJV
