Pretending World Peace

I’m grateful for the relationship I have in Jesus Christ.  He keeps me on track with the truth.  It’s not a pretend relationship.  Because of that eternal relationship, I want to pursue Him with my entire being.   That gives me the practical outworking of His peace.  Paul writes, “and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Phi 4:7).  There are, however,  many unsettling issues in the world.  Some people might be very bothered and wonder, “What is happening?”

But let’s cut to the chase.  The uprisings in the Middle East against American interests are only the tip of the anger sword Islam is waving at America.  Ambassador Rice, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, says it was a spontaneous attack.  But the Libyan leader says it was pre-meditated, especially for the day on which it happen – 9-11.  For some reason, I’m more confident the Libyan leader, President El-Magariaf, is right.

I’m confident many are being pulled along by those who have set their mind against America and may not really know what they are doing.  Yet, the attacks on the embassy in Egypt, the killing of the four Americans in Libya, including the ambassador and several other attacks on embassies in Sudan, Yemen and Tunisia are not only from extremists.  They present the spread of not just American hatred, but what America represents – the stronghold of Christianity and support of Israel.

Let’s get wise America and the church!  We need to pray the White House wakes up.  They are playing the United States into the hands of a few. The WH is pretending they are asleep and you can’t wake up someone who is pretending they are asleep.  What is happening is no accident and it isn’t some spontaneous reaction from a film.  The film is only an excuse to expand Islam’s influence.  Steel up your thinking!

We need to grow in geo-political awareness.  Let’s get out of our comfort zone and prepare our mind for opportunities to shine the gospel of truth.  Are you ready to share the gospel with your neighbor?  Are you familiar with what the Koran says about you?  The only answer is found in the truth of the gospel.  In the mean time, become equipped mentally and practically.  Let’s not pretend everything is fine when it is not.
