Syria is now threatening to strike back at Israel for an attack on Wednesday that hit a convoy in Syria carrying weapons to Hezbollah. “Hezbollah condemned the attack as “barbaric aggression” and Syrian ally Russia said it appeared to be an unprovoked attack on a sovereign nation.”
I know the answer to this question but I must ask it before I explode: How do the anti-Semites not see the difference between one small nation trying to protect herself and the rest of the nations surrounding her actively attempting to destroy her because of religious hatred?
The answer is that they do know. They know and yet they still persist in spreading the lies, fabrications and obfuscations to draw others into their web. Some join their hatred because they are also anti-Semites. Others believe the lie because they have given over themselves to a reprobate mind.
Try as we do, we are unable to spread the truth to enough people to change public opinion to affect the current leadership in our country. The Arab nations, and those supporting them, are virtually lost to any attempt to reason; so deep and abiding is their hatred of the truth. The United States has long been a major world deterrent to massive attempts by any nation to obliterate Israel. But due to said current leadership of the United States, deterrence is being lost day by day.
What do we do? How do we live with what is happening to our once great nation and the fall of Israel that seems inevitable? Every day, and seemingly every hour, something new is added to the turmoil of war that the enemies of goodness are waging. How can we sleep at night in order to get up the next day to carry on the activities of living and teaching our children our morals? Even the action of teaching our children our morals is subverted every day they attend school. And it’s not just public schools. Some of our treasured private and religious schools are buckling to the enemies of truth by political correctness.
Again, what do we do? I will share with you the only thing I have been able to do to cope with the world’s slide into the horror of evil (after I swear, scream, rant and cry). I trust God. Faith. I know that God rules this world. He rules the universe. He is in charge.
I know it doesn’t seem like it, but Gods Providence is at work. Do you know what that means? I didn’t fully understand it until I read this terrific article that explains the Providence of God beautifully.
God has a purpose for what is happening. I don’t know what that purpose is and neither does any other person on this earth. I just know that I trust him and that he is what the Bible says he is. Trustworthy, Holy, Powerful, Wise, Just, Truth, and Good. There’s more, but those are just not his character; they are who God is.
What I just stated does not excuse us from trying to fight evil; fight the lies spread by those who would see our world descend into chaos and darkness. It helps us to continue that fight when all seems lost, when we become overwhelmed with the stupidity of people who cannot or will not see the truth.
May God bless our fight and keep us strong.
