CLARITY – 6-21-18 Meanwhile…Back and Forth


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 6-21-18


Meanwhile…Back and Forth


What’s Happening:  “Meanwhile, as if border troubles, denuclearization talks, trade wars, and the legalization of marijuana in Canada were not enough to be dealing with, Israel just hit targets in Gaza, in response to Hamas sending 45 rockets crashing into Israeli neighborhoods, in response to Israel’s targeting of kite and balloon launch sites (Palestinians have been sending over the border incendiary devices),which was in response to…it seems the world is busy ( ‘Just imagine living in fear..’ said Cabinet Minister Naftali Bennett.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Just more reasons to realize things are out of control!”


Biblical Response:  “You mean, just more fodder for prayer. ‘In the world, you shall have tribulation…(John 16:33)…but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world.’As long as we’re in this world,we’ll have to deal with the chaos of this world. Thankfully, ‘Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.’ (1 John 4:4)


“Christians? We realize that there are two competing agendas (John 10:10)…and which one will prevail.”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to see all the chaos around us and rejoice…not only do we have the answer, we know the Answer…and better still, He knows us; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
