My heart hurts today. The news is filled with images from South Carolina and the senseless killing of nine precious saints in the AME Church in Charleston. My heart weeps for the destruction.
Satan has stepped up his unholy boldness.
Evil now invades our homes to steal our children right from their beds only to rape, maim and murder the innocents – all in the name of evil. And satan laughs.
Evil now walks upright in the full light of day directly through the front door of our schools and opens fire on the innocents – killing all in it’s path; leaving a trail of destruction and tears that can never be repaired – all in the name of evil. And satan laughs.
Evil now boards our airplanes – unafraid and undaunted. It take control and three thousand innocents are murdered – all in the name of evil. And satan laughs.
Evil now plots and plans and stands boldly in the midst of goodness and accomplishment and tradition and jubilation to purposefully plant a device created purely to inflict death and untold damage and destruction of hundreds of lives – all in the name of evil. And satan laughs.
satan and his minions have become so bold that they now walk – upright and unchecked straight through the front doors, and into the heart of a House of God. Evil sat while the Word of God was spoken and taught. Yet that didn’t matter to evil. Evil stood up and methodically struck down nine lives. And satan laughs. I’m sure he was dancing with glee knowing that evil struck while the Words of God still hung in the air.
Where are we going to allow him go next?
People of God – Remember this:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
