Bastille Day Terror Attack in France ~ News release:
On the evening of 14 July 2016, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a Tunisian resident of France,deliberately drove a 19-tonne cargo truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, killing 84 people and injuring hundreds more. He was shot and killed by police. . . .
A truck driven by hate mowed down people like so many weeds in a field. Men, women and children were killed and injured. Who is the god of hatred but satan himself? Yes, we have a satanic move of violence sweeping across our world in these last days. Jihadist are led by a hatred in their souls for all but those who would follow their ways.
We pray today for the people of France who are fighting a desperate battle against these murderers inspired by the devil to find ways of destroying God’s children. Yes, that is the origin of all this violence. This is a spiritual attack, as well as an earthly one.
You see, in ancient days before time began there was a battle in heaven. Lucifer, a beautiful angel of music became jealous of God, through pride convinced himself that he should be god. Lucifer began conspiring with other angels and led a revolution against God Almighty.
Imagine a revolution against God. Lucifer was defeated and cast out of heaven. He became the devil we now call satan, and God’s bitter enemy who now casts his traps for God’s children. Our enemy, satan, will be defeated in this battle also!
It began with first man we call Adam. Through deception the devil convinced Adam to disobey God, and that betrayal against God became the sin that stained the blood of Adam and carried to all his decedents. However, God so loved us that from our conception He planned a way of salvation for all His kids. The sin of our origin, that was passed down through the blood line of Adam to all of us, was a sin of man against God. Therefore, it had to be mitigated by a God-man, and so God sent His own Son Jesus to be the sacrifice that would redeem us. Jesus came upon the earth born to a Jewish couple named Mary and Joseph. He grew in wisdom and knowledge to become our Savior. After teaching and performing miracles for three short years, He was falsely accused by the devil’s cohorts, then beaten and cruelly crucified on the cross. It is His shed blood that cleanses sin from our blood.
When we repent of our sins, accept Jesus gift of salvation making Him Lord of our lives, we take on a new identity as God’s child with His DNA. With our new nature now bathed in the blood of Jesus we can approach Father God and actually build intimacy with Him. (If you desire this, the book Cast Up A Highway is a good guide) Once we belong to Jesus we will be blessed here on earth and are guaranteed entrance into heaven when we die.
Titus 3:3-8The Message (MSG)
It wasn’t so long ago that we ourselves were stupid and stubborn, dupes of sin, ordered every which way by our glands,
going around with a chip on our shoulder, hated and hating back.
But when God, our kind and loving Savior God, stepped in,
He saved us from all that. It was all his doing;
we had nothing to do with it.
He gave us a good bath, and we came out of it new people,
washed inside and out by the Holy Spirit.
Our Savior Jesus poured out new life so generously.
God’s gift has restored our relationship with him and given us back our lives.
And there’s more life to come—
an eternity of life! You can count on this.
My friends, all this terror in our world shows us that none has guarantee of another day. Many of our brothers and sisters in France never knew that when they awakened on Bastille Day they would die before the day’s end. Please my friends, deeply consider the truths I share here, and ask Jesus to show you the light of salvation so that we can be together in eternity. What have you got to lose?
God loves us so much! It is His desire that you hear His heart and accept His Son’s sacrifice for you. He wants you to live with Him in eternity. The Book of Revelation in the Bible clearly depicts the end of time and the results of our choices. Disdaining God and rejecting Jesus' gift ends up in terrible tragedy with death bringing hellfire and damnation, pain of losing God and suffering under satan’s hatred forever, for eternity. Please do not mess around with this truth.
I love you and want to spend my eternity with you in heaven. Will you meet me there at the end of our days on earth?
