We are close to the ten year mark in the “war on terror”, so much propaganda and fear has been used to motivate the citizens of the United States, we’ve been taught in no uncertain terms that our danger is so severe that we should give up our Christian nation’s identity of “love your neighbor”.
We have become accomplices by our acceptance of the most monstrous acts against foreigners beginning with the Afghanistan and Iraqi vengeances in which by standing civilians were caught up in the bombings and raids which we excused ourselves for by justifying them as infidels who our government said hate our way of life, our democracy.
If we can open our eyes, take in these many events reported and recorded in the record of these increasingly vengeful ten years can we not repent before we have no heritage to give to our children?
My 17 year old son told me yesterday that he had been reading in the Bible where it says that it is the duty of parents to give an heritage to their children. He looked so clear eyed and venerable as he sat there strong and armed with his belief in those words, and I saw his incredulity that his future could be robbed by the unjust and thieves in his own country.
Proverbs 13:22 – A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.
In the Hebrew this word Good is: towb, tobe; which has several meanings such as (1) bountiful, (2) prosperity or prosperous, and (3) wealthy.
In the Hebrew this word inheritance is: nachal, naw-khal’; which has several meanings such as (1) to inherit, (2) to occupy, (3) to be-queath, or to leave somebody something in a will, and (4) to distribute or to divide an estate.
Today we need to think of our posterity, look at the record of God’s Word.
In the course of this decade these present fears have come home to include everyone, no exceptions, no logic applies, nothing but the blind whim of the minimum wage TSA employee.
We’ve been persuaded to adopt defensive suspicion of everyone including our own countrymen & family while we look on “helplessly” as TSA molests our children, women, & handicapped. They have stopped ZERO terrorists in these humiliating random causeless invasions and traumatized thousands directly and millions indirectly by our witnessing these assaults.
The fear now extends into Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya, not many of us quite understand how our leaders have concluded these peoples threaten us. Yet we hear them threatening Yemen, Syria, and ultimately hoping to catch Iran in actionable cause for war. Now our ally Pakistan is under the light of interrogation for their accused harboring of Bin Laden.
All I can think is that this FEAR JUSTIFYING EVERY violent imprisonment and restriction of nations and individuals means all out war upon the entire Middle East + North African + Muslim world which will end in +Russian intervention, possible + Chinese too = World War 3.
We don’t want this! We don’t want to give our children debt and bondage and wars!
We have to stop before we lose every shred of our heritage as a free nation, however imperfect it has ever been, we still have the US Constitution although it is under dire threat, not from terrorists, but from the government that engaged us in this fear lead quest to go to war and conquer every nation and person the leaders of both political parties of our country arbitrarily label terrorist.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. [2 Chronicles 7:14]
