Geographical Trivialities and No Nonsense Belly Aching

For the last few months the news has zeroed in on Syria. Another country chained to a sadistic dictator.

President Assad continues to ravage his people with death all in the name of power.

The ultimate in greed and selfishness, these people will do anything to keep their position.

As if that isn’t bad enough, Afghanistan insurgents beheaded 17 civilians at a party.

Pakistan has displaced 700,000 people after flooding. Civil unrest continues along with the
mistreatment of women and young girls. Rape, forced marriage and domestic violence are abuses being done every day.

Recently the police recovered the dead body of Muqadas Kainat and postmortem was
conducted which proved that Muqadas Kainat was gang raped and later strangled to death by five men. She was a Christian.

August 16, 2012 in Islamabad, a 13 year old Christian girl was beaten, and imprisoned for burning the Koran; she did not do this. She wasn’t even aware of the law. She is one of a family of about 500 Christians who were living in Islamabad who after this false accusation fled their colony as the Muslims announced over the loud speaker what she had done. Angry attackers attacked their homes, breaking down doors, and beating many of them. They burned what little they had and told them to leave.

These horrific accounts happen daily in these countries. The last 2 are the ones we, in America rarely hear about. There is little or no protection for Christians and women.

And we think we have problems here.

We have nothing to complain about.

How can we possibly be fighting over such trivialities in America when in these other countries they are glad to have lived one more day?

Our peacekeeping measures work as long as our military is present but once we leave territories full of extremists; they start all over again with the “war mindset.”  They know nothing else. They fight. They hurt. They kill.

We in America have been spared of so much. Why I wasn’t born in Pakistan or Afghanistan is a mystery. It could have been any of us living in these war ravaged countries.

Crossing my mind, many times is the huge body of water that separates America from Europe; the Atlantic Ocean.

Had that body of water not been there, our lives here may have been very different. Due to the distance between the two continents  in a strange sort of way it has cushioned us from battles; wars, and attacks of all kinds. Who would have thought a body of water would be a wall of natural protection. God?

Do you think he planned it that way?

Do you think he had reasons we don’t know about for placing the earth’s geographical regions where they are?

If that is what he did, why is Israel a sitting duck? Why is that tiny little spot on earth surrounded by groups of people that want to annihilate it?

The only answer I can come up with is God is going to show his awesome power by preserving his people and his land. No one will be able to take what belongs to him.

And maybe, just maybe our position on earth in America is the support system God planned for Israel.

Anyone want to bellyache now?

  1. Just read this morning about the rise of persecution of Christians in Muslim majority nations. The nation names are always the same. The problem is that gap called an ocean has not prevented them from bringing their violence and hatred to the US. It is our enforcement of freedoms in this nation that protects us, and yet at the same time allows them to infringe upon our freedoms.
    I read your blog and agree, but I despise what they do in the name of a god.

  2. “…And maybe, just maybe our position on earth in America is the support system God planned for Israel…”

    The nation which was the first to recognize Israel as a sovereign nation is doing everything it can to undermine its continued blessings from God. It’s almost like we want to commit suicide.

  3. It’s getting rough out there! And we better protect Israel if we want God’s Blessings!
    God Bless You, Cathy!

  4. Hi Cathy, yes we were born in Australia and America which are afluent Countries this is because of our Christian heritage but as we degress into evil and idolertry we too will be like those Countries in extreem poverty. We remember that the whole known world received the Gospel Romans 10:17-19 but they were guilty of not passing it on to the next generation the same as the Jews. Thankfully there will be a remenant of the old Isrealites saved ( see below ) all those who believe in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour as some do today but we are as Born again Christians, God’s chosen Spiritual Israelites’ the Children of the Promise, not of flesh circumstation but of The Spirit, Jews in order of heritage meaning co -hires with Jesus and as the new Isrelites we will all be saved ,

    Romans 9:26-27 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:

    Romans 2:28-29 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
    .
    But ye are a chosen Generation, a Royal Priesthood, an Holy Nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; ( 1Peter 2: 9-11 KJV )

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne
