When You Want to Holler, “When Will It End?”

When You Want to Holler, “When Will It End?”

“Through his cunning
He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule;

And he shall exalt himself in his heart.
He shall destroy many in their prosperity.
He shall even rise against the Prince of princes;
But he shall be broken without human means.”

Daniel 8:25 (NKJV)

 “There is so much hate on Facebook,” one of my friends said in a post.

I reflected on her statement then agreed with her, “This whole country is full of hate – rich against poor, politicians against regular people, gun supporters against those who don’t own firearms, and of course the continuing race division, that seems to have grown wider.”

And as I’m writing this post I hear on the radio that the fast-food chain “Sonic ” has been hacked. Millions are already dealing with the Equifax security breach.

It makes you want to holler, “When will it end?”

We, as Christians, should not lose heart, although the things happening in our world can be disheartening. We serve the “Controller” of the universe, the Mighty God, who is observing everything that is going on.

And when Jehovah gets fed up, He will stretch out His hands and take control. Just like He wanted to stretch out His hands against the disobedient, complaining Israelites in the wilderness; He confused the language when mankind became so intelligent that humankind wanted to build a tower to heaven, and He sent a flood when He could not tolerate any more of His creation’s wickedness.

The prophet Daniel informed us centuries ago that Beelzebub would cause deceit to succeed by his influence. We know it is the Prince of the Air’ that is causing all of the havoc in our world – hate, jealousy, bigotry, racism, judgmentalness, pride, injustices, inequities – to name a few.

The good news is that Lucifer will be broken without human intervention by the hand of God.

And there will be peace and love and respect and justice.

Let’s keep praying for our President, Congress, the Senate, our country, and our world.
