Reflexive Commentary follows:
Kenya attack survivor says gunmen had scouted the campusLaughing Somali gunmen taunted victims in university massacre
The same demons and devilish paradigm which lead Cain to murder Abel,
· the Roman authorities to murder the Christians the Coliseum,
· the Catholics to murder Christians during the Inquisition,
· the Nazis to murder Jews,
· the Hutu majority to murder Tutsis and moderate Hutus,
· the “Islamic State” to murder Christians and others,
have again lead “Islamic Terrorists” to murder Christians specifically.
But before we get too shocked, let us consider ourselves. According to John 8:44
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Many of us are under the false assumption that we are not under demonic influence/control. However, the reality is easily verifiable.
Matthew 7:16-20 (personalized)
16 We shall know us by our fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by our fruits we shall know ourselves.
Do we indulge in lusts/ anger/ hatred, bitterness/ revenge/ ill will/ gambling/ gossiping/ overeating/ intemperance/ sexual immorality/ stealing/ robbing/ cheating/ deceiving/ untruths/ lies/ etc./ etc./ etc./ dishonoring GOD?
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
1 John 3:15
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
JESUS stated a Universal Truth containing Condition, Consequences and Hope in John 14:15-18
15 If ye love me, keep (obey) my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not,neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
I pray the Spirit of Truth lead us to Know=Love JESUS & FATHER & COMFORTER that we may Repent and be Comforted in Heavenly things and abhor the sinful things of this world which result in temporal and eternal death. Amen.
May the Holistic Healing Peace of the CREATOR’s Presence encompass you this Sabbath.
