The world seems to be ready to snap these days and it shouldn’t be. God created all of us and there is very little difference in our genetic makeup. I mean if you could track it down there is only about 1% or so that is different between people all over the world. Most of that has to do with eye color, skin color, hair color, and texture but very little else.
Still, we keep shooting at each other and killing each other for mostly cultural reasons. Some of it is also because of religious beliefs but…why? We are individuals and we should be tolerant of other people’s beliefs and their culture too, so why can’t we?
Is it because of hate or greed or just being an extremist in our own belief which keeps us at each other’s throats?
The real reason is that this is supposed to happen. It is foretold in the book of Revelation. Tension and strife over petty differences and religious beliefs will become worse toward the end of the age and that is exactly where we are. If you have read the Bible and pay attention to the news all of these things are not unusual at all. They are disturbing and hurtful but God knew this was going to happen a long time ago.
Remember, God is not surprised by anything which happens. God loves us and He has things under His control. Nothing can happen without His authority. I pray that many who read this will seek Him out because one day soon the church will be taken from the Earth and life will get even harder for those who are still here.
Make sure of your salvation since it is the difference between living into eternity and being in torment for eternity.
