Blood Moon, John McCormack, Albuquerque Realtor

Morning Inspiration: "Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers." Jesus, quoted in Matthew 24:9

 

"Are you a Christian?" the shooter asked. Those who said yes were shot and killed, according to eyewitnesses. Ten people who thought everything was fine yesterday, are dead today. We mourn for them and their families, and we wonder "WHAT is the world coming to?"

 

We're shocked...but shouldn't be. Jesus warned us over 2,000 years ago this was coming...and the beginning of those days have arrived. Until now, we have been incredibly blessed, favored and protected in this nation. We've seen all the beheadings, burnings and mass killings of Christians in the middle east and Europe...but never believed it would happen here. Even after a recent mass murder at a US church, we've been in denial. Fact is, attacks on churches and Christians have been growing steadily, and we should expect that to continue. At least the government is not attacking us, as happens in many other nations. At least not yet.

 

I believe we must pray for the best...and prepare for the worst. Talk with family and close friends about your faith. Discuss what you would say or do if faced with a life and death question or situation. Make SURE you are spiritually prepared to meet Jesus face to face! Pray for the courage to do what is right in God's sight, no matter what. Refuse to let anger and hatred have any place in your heart. Whatever happens, continue to trust completely in God, and do NOT be afraid! In Matthew 10:28, Jesus tells us: Don't be afraid of those who want to kill your body, they cannot touch your soul."

 

Live EVERY day as if it's your last one on this earth, by making Jesus the center of everything you think, say and do. This life has great value...but it is not our final destination.

I don't know if there is much sense that can be made of mental illness.  And, certainly the senseless killings at the community college in Roseberg, Oregon, fall into that realm.  

I keep wondering what the earth would be like if folks began seeing themselves as more alike, rather than different!

I have thought about this and discussed it with my husband.  I need to discuss this with my grown children too but I'm sure that they all feel the same way.  Yeshua' said that if we acknowledge him before others, He would acknowledge us before The Father .  These brave young people did that.

Hi John McCormack ,  Those that think that this violence is only in the news and not for them, don't realize that some of those people thought the same thing.

John McCormack this is so sad! Was it an effect of Blood Moon? One never knows. Still -

Thanks john.  I certainly believe there are things we can do to minimize these senseless attacks.

I am so saddened by this recent tragedy so close to home. Regardless of where it happens, or why, it's horrific. There are no words.

I just re read Rebecca's comment and realize there is more to this than meets my eyes. There is the element that touches one's true being, their essence, their soul. Once again upon the cliffs of Darian, toes upon the edge, faith awaits. cheers cvc

It is very sad. There seems to be no end and until we can get change at the top to initiate real change, we are stuck as a nation. I think it starts by keeping these peoples face and names off tv and out of the limelight. Locally as you, we stay strong as a family, community and be alert. Faith will lead us.

I just shake my head and hope that mental illness will be dealt with as a true disease instead of being put in the closet, John.

It is chilling.  God is bigger than all of it, though, and will never leave us without His help.  Great post.  Thank you.

Reading this reminds me of your video of yours regarding the monuments of Jesus' last days in Texas. I cried because it was so sad and so beautiful and uplifting at the same time. 

Your heart is true and your message the same. Thank you for being a walking inspiration.

Hi John McCormack 

We are living in scary times though these religious wars have been going on almost since creation. All I can say is "God Bless America" and I loved  the fact that Pope Francis came to visit our country.
