So, last week (the last week of July 2019) some moron killed innocents in California at a food festival. Yesterday, some sicko killed 20 people at a Walmart in El Paso, and this morning, yet another kook with a gun killed 9 and wounded 20 in in Dayton Ohio at a community event.
The gunman used a .223-caliber high-capacity magazine and was wearing body armor, according to the Mayor. The suspect had additional magazines. Officers neutralized him in under a minute, and killed him.
I don't care what anyone says - there is NO WAY to "predict" that someone will do this! Our society is completely out of control. Why? Because we don't pay any attention to YHWH's Divine Instructions! There's no respect for anything or anybody anymore. We're a totally me-oriented society that doesn't like rules of ANY kind and tends to "side" with criminals instead of the law.
How sad, because there is no turning back now.
And for those who will insist we "pray" and endlessly remind us that "God is in control" here's a wakeup call:
YHWH gives us all FREE WILL! He isn't going to stop lunatics with guns from committing mass murders - just like He hasn't stopped Israel's enemies from attacking; just like He hasn't stopped the endless wars in the Middle East, nor has prayer eradicated pedophelia, sex or human trafficking, or beastiality, or child abuse, or poverty.
Prayer hasn't stopped the ills or diseases of the world. It hasn't stopped man's destruction of our planet and our environment, or entire species of animals from being driven into extinction by mankind.
Prayer also hasn't put a stop to prejudice, pedophelia, spouse abuse, "gay marriage" or anything else YHWH hates; nor did it stop the two world wars or the Holocaust where at least six million of HIS people were killed by a raving lunatic and his blind and brainless followers.
Wanna know why? Because most of the world does NOT belong to YHWH, and consequently He doesn't hear the prayers! (Please think about that before posting a response!)
Proverbs 28:9 If a person will not listen to Torah, even his prayer is an abomination. (CJB)
1 Corinthians 6:19 Or don't you know that your body is a temple for the Ruach HaKodesh who lives inside you, whom you received from God? The fact is, you don't belong to yourselves; 20 for you were bought at a price. So use your bodies to glorify God. (CJB)
1 Corinthians 3:12 Some will use gold, silver or precious stones in building on this foundation; while others will use wood, grass or straw. 13 But each one's work will be shown for what it is; the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire - the fire will test the quality of each one's work.
14 If the work someone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward; 15 if it is burned up, he will have to bear the loss: he will still escape with his life, but it will be like escaping through a fire. 16 Don't you know that you people are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you? 17 So if anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you yourselves are that temple. (CJB)
One has to wonder whether those who refuse to adhere to the WHOLE Bible and are only "believing in Jesus" and NOT OBEYING Torah, truly belong to Him....Surely, those who pick and choose and dismiss one "testament" over another, are not His servants....
