Yesterday our President took a stand for America in the Middle East by approving an airstrike that killed an Iranian general responsible for terror.
Just a few minutes ago, President Trump released this statement: “General Qassem Soleimani has killed or badly wounded thousands of Americans over an extended period of time, and was plotting to kill many more…but got caught! He was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of millions of people, including the recent large number of PROTESTERS killed in Iran itself. While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. They are not nearly as saddened as the leaders will let the outside world believe. He should have been taken out many years ago!”
However, the president’s opposition party has already been scrambling to microphones and declaring their fear that our president has just started a war with Iran. Well, I think the truth is our president just responded to the war that Iran has brought to us and he didn’t do it with pallets of unmarked cash.
Please don’t buy into the fear that our media is helping to create in opposition to our president’s steps to stop evil. Judges 20 shares a similar story of the men of Israel coming together to and stop the murderous evil within the tribe of Benjamin.
Let’s be in prayer about whatever the Iranians do in retaliation and let’s be in prayer that there remain hedge of protection around our president and his team as the seek our well-being.
Here is what I want you to know now…
Jesus told us there would be war, and there is, and Jesus told us it would be escalating and it is, but he also told us not to be alarmed, troubled, or worried about it.
Matthew 24:6 says, “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”
Jesus also reminds us in John 14:27, “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
We face a greater chance of being struck by a heart attack or a drunk driver than we do of an Iranian missile, so let’s keep our minds fixed on the Blessed Hope and “the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).
