I cried like a baby the first time I saw the news about the plight of the Ukrainian refugees. Can you imagine how you would feel if suddenly, your entire world was being turned upside-down by some madman who declares war and threatens to bomb your country to smithereens unless everyone agrees to allow him to take over and expand his kingdom?
Can you imagine how it would feel to be told you and your family have just a few hours to pack a suitcase and flee to a bordering country? Can you imagine having left everything you know and love behind, and suddenly becoming homeless, in a strange land?
This is so reminiscent of Iraq and other Middle Eastern Countries where people have been evacuating to Europe for several decades now - all because of some power-hungry, wild-eyed lunatics! (It's nothing new; mankind, the world over, has been doing this since the beginning of time!)
Here's the thing, folks: If you know the Bible, then you understand all this is a direct result of the Original Sin by Adam and Eve who "had it made" in the Garden of Eden; but incurred YHWH's wrath by choosing to ignore His Divine Instructions. Consequently, WE inherited a dangerous world fraught with natural disasters, illness, diseases, pain, death, tears, the rising of false messiahs, and an endless onslaught of wars and rumors of wars. (See Matthew 24)
We live in an EVIL world because it is run by haSatan, the former angel, Lucifer, who went up against YHWH and lost; whose end IS COMING (see Isaiah 14:3-20, 2 Peter 1:19 and Revelation 12 and 20). His only goal, in the little time he has left, is to take as many to Sheol with him, as he possibly can. (And judging from the looks of things, he WILL be taking most of humanity....)
The only GOOD news in this, is that YHWH's grace and mercy allowed us a way to reconcile with Him through His Divine Messiah whose precious shed blood atoned for our past sins, thus allowing us a "second chance" to "get right with ELOHIM" by choosing to live a holy/set apart life designed to prepare us for Eternity. I highly urge you to choose THAT life, instead of the alternative, which is eternal separation from YHWH/Yeshua (2 Thess 1:9).
Those who know the Bible, KNOW that YHWH is allowing all these "bad" things to happen, because He knew from the very beginning that humans - to whom He gave FREE WILL - were going to stray. And so now, we're experiencing the beginning of the end. HOW you react to it, and what you choose to do, reveals WHOM you serve, and how you really feel about ADONAI....
Deuteronomy 30:5 “Look! I am presenting you today with, on the one hand, life and good; and on the other, death and evil — 16 in that I am ordering you today to love Adonai your God, to follow his ways, and to obey his mitzvot, regulations and rulings; for if you do, you will live and increase your numbers; and Adonai your God will bless you in the land you are entering in order to take possession of it. 17 But if your heart turns away, if you refuse to listen, if you are drawn away to prostrate yourselves before other gods and serve them; 18 I am announcing to you today that you will certainly perish; you will not live long in the land you are crossing the Yarden to enter and possess.
19 “I call on heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have presented you with life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore, choose life, so that you will live, you and your descendants, 20 loving Adonai your God, paying attention to what he says and clinging to him — for that is the purpose of your life!....
