“Unreal” Destruction

Unprecedented Mayhem and Destruction Hijackings and Bombings the deaths and Injury of many innocent people.

What Does it mean?

1) It means that Human Life is fragile and fleeting.

2) It also means that we exist in a world and in a time of great disobedience and disrespect. Disrespect and disobedience directed at both God and people.

Yes, this could have Major Biblical *(End Time) Significance.

Biblically for the “End Times” the world will be Governed by one world leader. This world leader will lead from Europe and not from the USA.

This series of catastrophes could have the end time Biblical significance in causing the UN Hq. Building to relocate from NY (USA) to Europe and this would fit Bible Prophecy in that the UN or some global agency would be in Europe.

*End Times means the End of the Times that humans will spend separated from Jesus (God). End time is Not the end of time, it is the end of separation time, before the return of Jesus to unite with people and to reign here on earth.

Why does God Allow such tragedies to Happen?
God allows tragedy to happen to reveal that Human life is precious and that the real tragedy is human separation from God.

These Tragedies and Death itself will cease when Jesus reigns and rules from earth.

The last Prayer in the Bible is a prayer Requesting the speedy, coming return of Jesus. Reflecting on these end time events the Disciple John prays that Jesus would come quickly.

Revelation 22:20,21 He (Jesus) which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen Even so come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen

Bombing and terror with major loss of life happens all over the world tragically often. We in America are so arrogant to assume that the whole world is now coming to an end just because our own country is finally having to suffer the same terror the rest of the world has been living with on a routine basis for years.

The tragedy-and these responses-have the same source.

Religious extremism.

Imagine all the secular people killed today for a god they don't worship. Pick which one.

Since when did exercising Free Speech and Bible study become Extremism?

I have spent the day in Mourning and in Prayer for the people involved and their families.

Since I know that God is in Control and in Charge and not man and certainly not terrorists I have sought to put today’s tragic events into Biblical context.

Maybe the biggest problem in the world today is the demeaning Stereotyping which some are so quick to engage in.
