Praise the Living God. Letter writer John Laker's recent letter was inspiring. I have not heard of anyone who believed in God in a coon's age. He had a worldly conclusion to a spiritual message, however.
"Jesus is the Prince of Peace and the mediator with God." The Bible does not mention "world peace" but only "Peace on earth." This peace is with God and our neighbor.
Israel was punished with prolonged "captivity." Jesus taught, "My kingdom is not of this world."
The book of Proverbs states: "The fear of 'he is' (why) is the beginning of knowledge"
What this means is that God is a killer. (This knowledge promotes faith and obedience.) Our present dilemma is described: "I will visit iniquities of the fathers on the third and fourth generation." As, Israel was 215 years in Egypt for sending the prophet Joseph into slavery; We are in, "Satan loosed a little" since 1960 when the Bible message was banned worldwide. (I was there.)
