Terror; The Lost War

Zephaniah 1:14-1:18

{Terror; Intense, overpowering fear.An emotion experienced in anticipation of some specific pain or danger (usually accompanied by a desire to flee or fight).A feeling of agitation and anxiety caused by the presence or imminence of danger. A state or condition marked by this feeling: living in fear. A feeling of disquiet or apprehension: a fear of looking foolish. Extreme reverence or awe, as toward a supreme power. A reason for dread or apprehension} As the Iraq war turns into another Vietnam and Iran remains a nation of anti-Christian, anti-Israely people. I wonder why the Government still insists that the middle east will turn into a democratic stronghold. Democracy and the middle east will never take place. Even the election in Iran was an exercise in futility. No matter who is elected, the Clerics still run the country. Why cant people see that Gods prophecy's, will and are, taking place.

Luke 21:20 tells us, "And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh." Doesnt Luke 21:20 reviele the truth of the world as we see it today. There are many in the Middle East that are preaching peace between them and Israel, but this is because they are afraid of Israel. When the time is right they will strike. Africa is starving to death, The Dead Sea is drying up, Israel is under attack, Earth Quakes are increasing in number, Marriage is being destroyed and the values of many, that were strong just 20 years ago, are slowly slipping away in the name of compromise and unity. Man has polluted and almost used up all natural resources. Familys are afraid to walk down the streets at night, Mothers and Dads are afraid to send their children to school. This my frends is all terror. Terror is right down town, all around. The war on terror cannot be won. Many are deceived that this world will last forever. That things can be changed if we have one world, Religion, Government and Bank. One head of all religious matters. Its time to wake up and smell the smoke. Religion is "NOT" Salvation ! I must say that again,Religion is "NOT" Salvation. Wars and rumors of wars are an item in the news each and every day. 20 years ago we seldom heard of terrorist or wars in multiple countries.

We never heard of combining religions into one unit. God was God and Jesus reigned supreme in our lives. Today we are seeing wars over, Oil, Land, Religion and Power. In just the last few weeks I have read of murder-suicides in our home town. Stalkers and terror on ever hand. Saying that a war on terror is win-able is misleading. Terrorist have been on this earth from the beginning and will be untill the end of time. Don't misunderstand, protecting people from murder is essential but the war on terror is a lost war before it started. We lock our doors because of fear and terror. Lets read an article that was mailed to me from Jerusalem; Foreign Minister Shalom commented on the Iranian elections, maintaining that the election of Ahmadinejad proves that Iran is not interested in reform, conciliation and progress; rather, it is interested in conservatism and extremism.

The foreign minister said that it is more probable now than ever before that the Iranian government will arm the terrorist organizations with nuclear weapons and will thereby distribute the nuclear threat all over the world. The connection between terrorism and nuclear weapons is a global existential threat. The international community must form a unified and decisive policy towards Iran, which will assure that the enlightened western nations will not become hostages of an extremist Iran.

Lets read a little scripture. 1Peter 3:12- 14: For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 1Peter 3:12- 14 is mistaken by some who believe that God, in these verses ,is promising Christians a peaceful life. That couldn't be farther from the truth. The key phrase is this; "But and if ye suffer for righteousness'"

Many Christians will be immune from violence and terror and then again many will be victims of it. We hear of the wars but very seldom does the news tell of the murders and terrors of Christians, that are taking place each and every day. We Don't hear of the Christian, women being raped, Christian children being kidnaped and brane washed, nor about Christian preachers being beaten savagely, because of their beliefe in Jesus Christ. This is a war on terror that is being ignored by man. This is a war on terror that is destroying this earth. This is a war on terror that is being lost. Zep 1:14-18 tells it the way it is; "The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land." The Day of Wrath is comming upon this earth and nothing is going to stop it. I wonder sometimes, what it will take for people to understand the God loves them, just the way they are. He is willing to protect them from that awful day but will not wait long. The days of the gentiles is just about over. 911 was another sign. Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and the terrorist that came with them are all signs that this earth is ready for a change. Gods word will cover the Globe but Christianity will not win the world to Christ. Thats not Biblical. Luke 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
