Today's blog is going to be somewhat of a downer -- but it's just kind of where I am right now. I feel like I'm on foreign turf. Like a kid who is out playing, and suddenly finds himself surrounded by thugs. Except the thugs are Satan and his henchmen.
It doesn't seem like there is ever a let-up. Just about the time we get through one crisis -- he hits us with another. Tsunami. Hurricanes. Drought. People are quick to blame God for all these things. But check out the book of Job, and you will see that Satan brought the tornado, etc.
On top of that, there is always some nutcase waiting to replace the last one. From Qadafi to Amin to Ayatollah Khomeini to Saddam Hussein to the current leader of North Korea (I can't remenber his name) -- and the list goes on and on. People who threaten the stability of the world. And if that wasn't enough, now we have a real lulu: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the leader of Iran. This guy has some serious issues. He believes the holocaust was fabricated by the Jews. He has called for the extermination of all Jews. And he is actively seeking nuclear weapon capabilities.
Interesting: Other than the North Korean guy, notice a common thread with the rest. They are all Islamic (you know, that religion that claims to be all about peace). I really wish that the US would rachet up our pursuit of alternative fuels and cut off supporting these nations by buying their oil.
So, it appears that we may be fighting a war on three fronts: Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran. And we're not far from being in North Korea.
It all wears me out. I'm ready to be on home turf. I'm tired of the playground bullies. All the more reason to pray, "Lord, come quickly."
