This week’s news plus the link between holiness and safety
IT’S NEWS TO ME
Islamic Infiltration of the Christian Church (MUST READ)
SETTING OUR MINDS ON THINGS ABOVE
The Safest Place We Can Ever Be
In the news this week, we have the State Department vowing not to cooperate with the Trump administration’s plans to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. We also have a government cover-up of the fact that the Ft. Lauderdale shooter was a Muslim convert, and the startling revelation that our government offered no objection to Russia’s massive uranium shipment to Iran.
Then there’s all the misinformation masquerading as actual news and threats of a massive disruption at the Trump inauguration. Yes, Hillary was defeated, but major efforts to undermine our nation’s security and the next administration are accelerating at an alarming rate.
What we’re seeing is just the latest installment of the lawlessness that has characterized our nation for the past eight years. Lawlessness, of course, is one of the signs that the last days are near. How near is impossible to say. What we can know for sure is that we must be alert to everything that is transpiring on the world stage. More and more people will be lulled to sleep, missing all the signs, and will buy into the lies that sound so good.
Those of us who wear the banner of “Christian” are called to be as shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. While we are to be watchmen, alerting those around us to the impending danger, we have also been called to be holy and blameless. We are to be light as God is light. To raise the bar even more, in Him there is no darkness at all.
We can spend so much time educating ourselves about the threats we face that we fail to remember that the battle belongs to the Lord. Our part is to represent Him nobly by being holy and blameless in everything. This is the primary way we can do our part to defeat our greatest enemy-by denying him access to our lives by removing every remnant of sin that we have allowed to weaken us.
As the world moves toward its inevitable end, we must be moving toward holiness, fighting the good fight by being blameless in everything we do, say and think. That will place us in the safest place we can ever be-in the center of God’s will.
