Paris attacks, more links and more encouragement

I'll be passing along links and verses and essays during the day on The End Time Facebook page that in my opinion help us work thought last night's Paris horror, to dampen fear of the same occurring in the US and pointing to Christ.

Here is last night's essay, I pray it encourages you.

Everything is ALL about man's relationship to God. He gives peace (reconciliation) that passes all understanding. Those without His peace perform war and horror and carnage. It is nothing new. It only upsets us because it is fresh.

Yet in Christ there are three words:

Reconciliation:

For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.... Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others. ... ll this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;  that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5:5, 11, 18-19).

Peace

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. (John 14:27)

Joy

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. (Romans 2:12)

The Atlantic: What ISIS Really Wants

As Challies said, "as we were transfixed by the horror of the Paris terror attacks last night, what is there to do but mourn the depravity of man. Denny Burk asks us to consider praying Psalm 10."

Arise Lord! Break the arm of the wicked man!

  1. In addition to Psalm 10, I believe it is prudent to also pray the 58th and 59th Psalms over Barack Obama and the rest of his corrupt government. (And no, "break the teeth" does not mean to kill. It means "to break the power and authority.")

    The United States is entering a desperate time to fight to protect our families and our nation, though it is under judgment. Having an elected leader who is destroying our country means that God is one to break the power and authority of Barack Obama
