Remembering September 11, 2001

Habakkuk 3:16-19 –
“I trembled inside when I hear all this; my lips quivered with fear. My legs gave way beneath me, and I shook in terror. I will wait quietly for the coming day when disaster will strike the people who invade us. Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vine, even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the LORD! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation. The Sovereign LORD is my strength! He will make me as surefooted as a deer and bring me safely over the mountains.
     Yes, our hope is in our Lord Jesus Christ in every situation, however, after fifteen years, we are more unsafe then at any time I can remember. I hear a lot of Christians say that God’s will for three thousand people who went to work on 9-11-01 to die by terrorists flying airplanes in the Twin Towers. I do not believe it is God’s will that three thousand babies be aborted monthly in the United States of America. I do not believe it is God’s will that Americans go to the polls and cast a vote for anyone who continue to allow these murderous attacks to continue.
     Jesus made it clear we can protect ourselves and our families. Luke 22:36 “He (Jesus) said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.” Jesus knew future opposition would require them to be prepared. They would need defense and protection.
     Keep watch and pray without ceasing. Jesus is coming soon.
