Looking Bad in Baghdad
I knew it would happen. No doubt, you knew it would happen and now it’s happening. Barely hours following the pull out of US forces from Iraq, the country is ablaze and falling into chaos.
Did Barack Obama know this was going to happen? Yes! The CIA warned him this would happen.
I didn’t need counsel of the CIA to know what would happen. Democracy is unsuitable to any people that are neither Christians nor Jews. What about India, you ask. Don’t kid yourself – the illegal caste system, religious persecution and murder of baby girl rage in India.
Only a strongman can restrain Islamic nations. Turkey’s attempt at secular society has blown up in their faces. The Shah of Iran took his country into a modern, secular society that began to enjoy western materialism until Jimmy Carter helped that “harmless cleric” overthrow the Iranian government. Anwar Sadat worked tirelessly to modernize, westernize Egypt and today the Muslim Brotherhood stands poised to take over the country. I see a trend and Jordan is not far behind.
Egypt, Turkey, Iran and Egypt had peace treaties with Israel. Practically overnight, radical Muslims are poised to establish a Middle East caliphate that threatens to annihilate tiny Israel.
Given the fact the CIA warned President Obama, what conclusions can one draw? Yes, Obama’s hatred of Jews (isn’t this a characteristic of radical Islam) motivated him to remove all US military presence from Iraq.
Beforehand, Iraq’s minority Sunni (Arab Muslim) population ruled under strongman Saddam Hussein, holding the majority Shia (non-Arab Muslim) population at bay.
What’s The Cure?
Will we successfully restore America to her greatness? Never. Only the miraculous intervention of the Living God can save us. Fear is overtaking America: fear of bankruptcy, fear of homelessness, fear of hunger, fear of unemployment, fear of war, fear of terrorism – fears we simply do not need. We do need a healthy fear of God.
The man or woman who fears God fears nothing else. Faith is a gift from God; belief is the act of taking ownership of that gift.
I encourage you to absorb the Word of God – the Bible, attach yourself to a Bible-believing local church, learn to overcome difficulties of life through the teachings of great pastors like Robert Morris of Gateway Church in Texas. His very popular book “The Blessed Life” holds the key to living a successful life in difficult times.
Regarding Gaining Wealth in Difficult Times (anytime for that matter)
Be a giver. According to Proverbs 19:17: “If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord – and he will repay you.” Give selflessly to the Salvation Army USA, the North Texas Food Bank and local ministries to the poor. Here in Rockwall County we have Helping Hands. Because of high unemployment and other economic dynamics, all these resources have been stretched beyond their normal capacity to relieve hunger.
Regarding keeping what you have
Possibly the oldest book of the Bible, the book of Job, tells the story of a good man who lost everything. In chapter 3, verse 25, Job confesses: “What I always feared has happened to me. What I dreaded has come true.” Don’t become a product of your fears.
Regarding Peace for Your Family
Pray for Israel and especially pray for Peace in Jerusalem. Psalm 122:6 is a commandment with a benefit: “Pray for peace in Jerusalem. Mall who love this city prosper.”
Regarding Peace for Your Nation
Pray for all elected and non-elected officials in authority over you. 1 Timothy 2:2 says, “Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.”
