Last night in the Manchester Arena where people were soaking in the entertainment of a well known American Pop Artist "Ariana Grande" electronic devices and Nail-Bombs were detonated bringing fatality to 22 victims and injuring 59. Children were found among the devastation and families grieved over this tragic wave of Terrorism. Britain has yet again been shaken with another Shockwave Since 2005 when the Bombings in London happened on 7/7. Young peoples lives were destroyed. Families hearts torn and shaken by the news that they will never see their loved ones again!
God weeps over the victims also. His heart is torn as His beautiful creation came to an abrupt end. Their purpose and future being cut off! He was in the midst of the carnage last night and felt the pain as well as heartache. God reached His hand of comfort to those who were hurting. He comes to heal today. To comfort and pour out His love into broken hearts bringing Hope to those who are looking for answers. Those who are left confused and devastated! His promise is that every tear drop will not be wasted.
Psalm 56:8 You number my wanderings. You put my tears into your bottle. Aren't they in your book?
During the events last night, citizens of Manchester pulled together and unified with the ones who weren't able to make it back to their homes due to fear or shock. Some opened their homes providing food and shelter. Comforting those who mourned. Expressing the heart of Christ.
When Jesus died on the cross He left His Holy Spirit who the bible names as "The Comforter." He sympathizes with our weakness and pain. The questions that many will ask on this day especially those who have lost loved ones through this tragedy is "Why did it happen? Who would do such an evil thing?." Evil is what has created such destruction and is eating at the very core of Humanity! It creates war, hatred, and anger. The ingredient of Satan's recipe as he continues to cook in hells kitchen. Feeding the vulnerable, the ones with no hope, with this poisonous food! Evil comes out of the heart! It gives birth to death and destruction. It starts in the mind then corrupts the heart. When our hearts are not submitted to God they become polluted and filled with deadly poison that oozes out causing an epidemic! We can choose Evil or Good! We are what we eat. What we feed upon we then become. Adam and Eve were told NOT to eat from the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil but they disobeyed God. They ate their own destruction and devastation
Genesis 2:16 Yahweh God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it; for in the day that you eat of it you will surely die."
That's why the world is the way it is! Not because of God but because of our disobedience. We need to throw ourselves onto the mercy of God, embracing His purposes and plan for our lives! There is so much deception and lying in this world. We have to bridge the gap between God and man. Reach out our hand and allow God to lead us through this dark corrupt world. Let Him be your guide, shelter, eyes, and ears. Let God consume, shaping us into Men and woman He wants us to be. There is strength when we reach out to Him. He offers us a life for Eternity. Some have chosen it and some have rejected it. When we accept Eternal life we live forever with Him. Even though our bodies die, our spirit and souls are with Him in Eternity!
Luke 12:4 "I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. 5 But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.
Run to the Savior. He is our refuge! Bombs, Guns, Knives, and other things that can take a life cannot separate you from God once your life is in His care! Time is short!! The clock is ticking and the world is crumbling and fading away. God is Everlasting! His Kingdom which is Not of this Earth is unshakable and when we are joined to Christ we become citizens of His unshakable kingdom. Citizens of Heaven!! So what shook Manchester last night did not shake the Heavens!
As we pray we speak the words
"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven".
Lets bring Heaven down on earth. Let the light of Christ shine in this corrupt world.
We pray for the victims of this horrendous attack and speak comfort and peace over their families. We pray for justice to be done and for Gods sovereignty to rule over our countries! Most of all we pray for Unity and love to spread reaching every heart!
In Jesus mighty name!! Amen.
If you're someone who doesn't know Jesus take time to connect with Him. Reach out now and pray this prayer!
Lord Jesus, I need you to open my eyes to the reality of your existence. I open my heart to you. I believe in faith you died on the cross and rose again to give me life making a way to God the Father. Forgive me for my sins. I accept you as my savior from sin and judgement. Amen!
