Why is there so much violence in this world???
Is it because we think that we are superior from one another? Is it our hatred towards other nationalities? Or is it the religious side of it?
What has given and who has given us the right to kill innocent people just for our own beliefs, wants and desires. Who are we to take a life without mercy and compassion. What has become of this humanity that instead of spreading love towards one another; we instead incite fear and hatred in the hearts of other people.
I truly believe that we have lost the mercy and compassion but most of all the love for human beings. There is so much violence in this world that sometimes I just get sick of watching news after news about a shooting, bombing and homicide. This world is becoming more darker as the days become shorter. I don’t know if you can’t feel this huge oppression in the air. Some might call me crazy but there is no peace at night. No one can go anywhere without being armed or no one can sleep at their own home without an alarm system.
1 Thessalonians 5:2
“For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night”
What are we doing?
To stop this spread of violence, I believe that we need to really turn back to God. The world has done whatever it wanted. When I talk about the world I’m not talking about earth itself but us the humans that live in this planet. We have turn our back to God, because he is not a huge thing. He does not give you the riches of the world, he does not give you fame, he does not give you constant sexual relationships or normal ones. All our reasons for having giving our back to God is going to come back.
2 Timothy 3:2
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous,boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents,unthankful, unholy,
We humans need structure; you might think you know everything or that there is no higher power out there that watches your every move and every thought. But at the end of all of this destruction will come for humanity. We have been rebellious toward someone that gave his only son to die and be torture in a cross for our sins. That someone that as a father loved his child but he knew that if that sacrifice was not made we would never have the opportunity to be face to face with him. He chose to give salvation and redemption to a humanity that constantly sins and has always being ungrateful and has stomped on that blood and sacrifice. And he continues to be merciful towards this humanity but a moment will come that his wrath will descend upon us for our sins and transgression.
“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
It’s time for us to go back toward that God that is merciful, compassionate, loving but also wrathful. It’s time to live under his commandments not our flesh desires and wants. What are you humanity doing to this beautiful planet and the lives that were created here.? It’s so tragic that nowadays we live in fear because we don’t know the intentions of our neighbors or friends. I ask anyone that reads this post to pray for your neighbors, community and even state; its time to rise up this country in prayer. Love one another as if you are blood related and show kindness and compassion but most of all Love to the needy.
P.S. Lets keep praying for violence to decrease in this world. May God bless you all, Shalom.
