The Immolation of the Imams and the Mauling of the Mahdi.
Much speculation is taking place among the Shias of Islam concerning the coming of the last Imam, their Muslim messiah, also called the Mahdi.
The president of Iran is a firm believer that he must prepare the way for this antichrist by destroying the great satan, America, and the little satan, Israel. And so he is working on his nuclear ability at breakneck speed.
Radical Islam is bent on the annihilation of Christianity and Judaism. For them, the sooner, the better. This Jihad against the west has changed the landscape of the world. (think 9/11, et al). There really is no hope for peace as long as their perverted mindset remains in place.
Daily we hear of successful bomb attacks, foiled terrorist attempts, threats to security, martyrdom of non-radicalized Muslims, beheading of those not loyal to the Regime, ad nausea.
Frankly, I fear for this world. I am saddened that our children will grow up in a world where peace and security can never be attained as long as these crazies in the army of Allah have sworn to kill "infidels" at every turn.
I have to wonder which cargo container in which port contains a nuke. I fear that every dirty bomb or suitcase bomb or car cannot possibly be foiled by Homeland Security, the NSA, FBI or CIA. Our intelligence community cannot possibly short circuit every Islamic attack on American or European (add African and Asian) soil.
But today, I read the 37th Psalm and have found great comfort. The following verses have ministered to me in allaying my discomfort:
Psa 37:1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
Psa 37:2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
Psa 37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Psa 37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
Psa 37:10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
Psa 37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
Psa 37:12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
Psa 37:13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
Psa 37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
Psa 37:15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
Psa 37:17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
Psa 37:18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
Psa 37:19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
Psa 37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
Psa 37:28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
Psa 37:29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
Psa 37:32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
Psa 37:33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
Psa 37:34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
Psa 37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
Psa 37:36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
Psa 37:37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
Psa 37:38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
Psa 37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
Psa 37:40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
I hope and pray that these inspired promises of Holy Writ will calm your fear and give you comfort for today and hope for tomorrow. Though the CIA cannot have sufficient intelligence on every sleeper cell, our omniscient Creator and Sustainer knows where the WMDs are hidden. And though the terrorists will one day anoint their messiah, The Lord will cut him off in his wickedness and preserve His saints.
