I heard about the school shootings of 17 students last night and I am still in shock! If this doesn’t get us on our knees seeking God, I don’t know what will.
Society continues to crumble all around us while we fill our minds with meaningless entertainment. To tell you the truth, I have no desire to watch fiction on TV any more.
Reality keeps grabbing my attention…
This was the worst school shooting since 2012. That was when 26 people died in Newton, CT. But these two are just the tips of icebergs. Just this year, there have been 18(!) school shootings! Eighteen! And its only February! That’s a lot of school shootings! And its getting worse… Our schools have become war zones…
I’m afraid the next step will be stricter gun control laws… The Democrats scream that every time one of these happens. That may slow it down it a little, but I doubt it. There is fundamentally something wrong with us and our society that won’t be fixed by more laws. And that, along with freedom of religion which they are desperately trying to destroy too, will be the end of our country and any liberty we have left…
Of course, we have not seen liberty of the press for a long time. We have the internet, but that will soon be regulated and it will go away…too…
“No?” You say. Well, the younger generation that is coming up now has been raised on Humanism and Marxism in our schools so why should we be surprised when all our liberty is gone?
Where are the fiery messages from our pulpits? Why are we not sounding the alarm? Are we still asleep while the world burns? Where are the warnings and pleadings for repentance? God is judging us and its not going to get any better unless we repent.
Unless we turn back to God.
But, the Lord has His own agenda. One thing is certain, though. Jesus coming back soon! I know I sound like a broken record, but its just the truth whether it happens tomorrow or in 50 years. We still need to be ready.
Are you ready, friend? Are you, as the old saints would say, “prayed up?” If not, then just turn back to Him. He loves you and is ready for you to draw closer to Him.
My two verses for today are: Isaiah 51:1: Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: Look unto the Rock whence ye are hewn and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.
If we don’t look to the Rock, we will get crushed!
Blow ye the trumpet in Zion and sound the alarm in my holy mountain; let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the Day of the Lord cometh for it is nigh at hand. Joel 2:1.
Sound the alarm!
(Note: I found out later that the 18 shootings were just mostly accidents. The group that figure came from was a liberal group pushing for gun control. However, they did say that about one fatal shooting happens every week in America at a school… So, about 5 or 6 of them could have been considered dangerous where actual injuries or death occurred. See, the liberal press is going to try to skewer the facts so we think that gun control is the only answer…)
