Terrorism — Living in fear

By
Real Estate Agent

Is anyone surprise by terrorism we see coming into this country in our own home town or a city nearby?  The unthinkable has happened, the city of Boston, MA was put on a lock down today.  Even if you are spared such inhuman cruelty, you may still have to deal with harassment, neighborhood skirmishes co workers deviousness, or family quarrels.  

Never before in history has there been so much bad news about bombings, shootings, crime, violence and now the dreaded terrorism.  We listen to the news or read about bombings  in other countries but now it is here in the US and someone will try to repeat what has happened.  The Police and political leaders are powerless to stop the senseless acts plaguing us while terrorist bring about what they see as a solution to injustices by instilling fear.   

The world is full of strife and wickedness.  Have you ever wondered who really is behind these horrible attacks?  The scale of evil, its ubiquity  seem our of proportion to what man can do on his own.  The book of Revelation yes the bible, I'm going there, speaks of the Devil who is angry because he has a short period of time.   And this anger will increase during the last days our time period.

Going forward the overall outlook for man's future looks bleak.  The once-cherished sense of personal safety seem to be slipping away.  We are going through a critical era called in the bible "the last days".  

But know this:  God will not allow such things to continue indefinitely.  The Kingdom that many were taught to pray for in the Lord's Pray will bring peace to this earth.  And the words found on a wall in the United Nations building "...Nations shall not lift up sword against nation.  Neither shall they learn war no more", will really come true.

Dee: I do appreciate your words from the heart...I have a sister up in New Hampshire--an hour from Boston and she is sickened with what is going on in her back yard! Yet we continue to allow terrorists freedom; freedom to move freely among us---what do we do? Stop everybody's ability to move freely? We are living in such unbearable times! We can no longer live without fear--it has been pushed upon us by those who are not even from this beloved country--and yet, do we stop all from coming here??? We are in a dilemma of awesome dimensions and your ability to speak of it so clearly and from the heart is helpful--it helps to see that others are going through what I am going through over what has happened. I am comforted by your statement: "God will not allow such things to continue indefinitely". Thank you!

Evil comes in many forms.  One still has to appreciate the fine work being done by the FBI, Homeland Security, and maybe a little better scrutiny by INS going forward.

Paula,

Thank you,I'm glad to be of help.  We can't stop terrorists from moving around freely because they don't show their true colors until it is too late.  There is nothing really in our power to stop evil on such a wide scale.  We have to rely on the Creator to put a stop to it.  Trusting in his promise to correct injustice can help us to gain peace of mind in this ungodly and unfair world.

 

Alix,

I agree, without them it would be chaos.  But can government officials deal with world problems?  They are limited in what they can accomplish because terrorism is a global problem.

Hi Dee,

it has been a horrible few months and I am praying that it gets better soon. Some countries do not respect the United Nations or anyone else. We need to tighten up our borders and make it harder to get in from other countries.

Kristin,

I'm afraid  tightening up the borders is only a band aid to the global problem of terrorism.   We need a real solution and that solution can only come from above.  I have confidence that it will get better because the promises for a better world are made by God , not by men.  And God "cannot lie" so said Titus 1:2  And if we learn to trust in God's promises, we will retain peace of mind despite the horrible things happening around us.
