Do you think there is a correlation between school shootings and the Liberal agenda of abortion, their removal of God and His Word from our schools, such as removing prayer and the 10 Commandments, removing teaching the Constitution and removing teaching respecting others lives, rights and property?
Your thoughts?” – M Beth Holland (my dear friend and sister in Christ)
My response to Beth’s very good question:
I think man alone isn’t smart enough and doesn’t have the capacity of longevity to weave the tapestry of this type of a well developed war campaign against God. From generation to generation and over thousands of years, man hasn’t possessed the magnitude of cunning and deviant interweaving that’s constructed such powerful well organized opposition to God, to His ways or against His people. We are vessels used for either good or evil; for God or Satan. Everyone has free will to choose which side we’re on but ultimately we are not the architects of the big picture; even though we are responsible and will be held accountable for what we choose.
It’s really heart numbing and astounding to witness the level of ignorance and deprivation that’s happening around the world; it appears the world is imploding. The world is falling apart because the foundation of God’s just and righteous ways, morality, laws and government are being abandoned and/or removed; and all wisdom and common sense with it. How can evil sustain itself? Evil is guaranteed to implode. The very essence of sin, evil and wickedness produces death and destruction.
The question then becomes how do we occupy until He returns. The answer is by faith toward God, through faith in the power of God to carry us through.
“Hearken unto Me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by Me from the belly, which are carried from the womb: And even to your old age I am He; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.”
“In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain? For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart. IF THE FOUNDATIONS BE DESTROYED, what can the righteous do? The LORD is in HIS holy temple, the LORD’S throne is in heaven: HIS eyes behold, HIS eyelids try, the children of men.”
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only HE who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
“Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, THAT YE MAY LIVE, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you. Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, THAT YE MAY KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS of the LORD your God which I command you. Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baalpeor: for all the men that followed Baalpeor, the LORD thy God hath destroyed them from among you. BUT YE THAT DID CLEAVE UNTO the LORD your God ARE ALIVE every one of you this day. Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. KEEP THEREFORE AND DO THEM; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
For what nation is there so great,
who hath God so nigh unto them,
as the LORD our God is in all things
that we call upon HIM for?
And what nation is there so great, that hath STATUTES and JUDGMENTS so RIGHTEOUS as all THIS LAW, which I set before you this day? Only take heed to thyself, and KEEP THY SOUL DILIGENTLY, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons”
In my opinion, the testimony of the man in this video gives one of the strongest proofs of the accuracy of the Bible and to the existence of God, to the truth of His word and of the existence of Satan. The reason is because this man knows what destroys any people. Balaam also taught this principle to Balak.
“Righteousness exalteth a nation:
but sin is a reproach to any people.”
