A Woman's Perspective On The Times We Live In

Could This Become Our Nightmare?

   
     No more excuses!  Everyone in this country should be fully awake now.  The horrendous massacre of innocent students in Peshawar, Pakistan is to be condemned by every human being on the planet.  But lest we think that this is a nightmare in some far-off land, we need to quit fooling ourselves and pretending that we are somehow exempt from such atrocities.
     We have a real enemy, people! It is an enemy that has broadcast their plans to strike us from within.  And from the 2004 Beslan school massacre, carried out by Islamic terrorists to this one in Pakistan, the surest way to devastate any nation is to harm its children.  So let's not be naive.  It is by the grace of God that we have yet to suffer such a tragedy.
    It is time the American people got real about what we are facing.  It is time we made plans to protect our most innocent citizens.  Read William Forstchen's Day of Wrath, and you will see how easily this threat could be carried out against our politically correct society.  Ignoring the extent of the depravity ... reports of headless children; teachers burned alive in front of students; suicide bombs placed amongst the children ... will not make it disappear, or less likely to occur again.  And we must not make it easy for the terrorists to commit such a horrendous campaign on our soil.
     Do you think they aren't aware that our schools are "gun-free zones"?  And do you think that well-armed and well-trained teachers just might be a deterrent to their evil plans?  When are we going to realize that the Western mindset of civilized and rational behavior is no defense against ancient cultures that celebrate cruel and savage attacks to demoralize their enemy?
      And for all those who, in recent days, have criticized the CIA and their advanced interrogation methods as "torture", I would ask you to consider this ... if you knew that your child was going to be in that Pakistani school this morning when the terrorists stormed through a cemetery to launch their attack, would you approve of a water boarding session -- or a few nights without sleep -- of one of the terrorists in order to gain information to stop the possibility of your child being shot, beheaded, or worse?
     I have heard people referring to the CIA methods as "barbaric" and "diabolical".  While, I absolutely hate the idea of war and what it makes men do to each other, I cannot equate interrogating a prisoner to the merciless and monstrous acts of these terrorists.  It is they, who are the barbarians.  And, unfortunately, what we may be called upon to do to stop Evil incarnate, goes against everything that our faith asks us to do in serving our fellow man.  While I never want to take another person's life, I have decided I must adopt the attitude of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German pastor who faced the worst that the devil could throw at him, in the person of Adolph Hitler.
     Pastor Bonhoeffer made the difficult decision to become involved in an assassination plot against the Fuhrer.  As he struggled with his conscience, he came to the final conclusion that God would have to understand that his decision was based on the need to stop such heinous evil.  He would take his chances at the throne of God, instead of living one more day doing nothing to stop Hitler's atrocities.  Have you given thought to the idea that we, too, may soon be faced with similar dilemmas?
     It is time that we come out of our national fog.  It is time that we see our enemy for who he is.  It is time that each individual must decide what he is willing to do to protect himself, his family, and his nation.  And it is time that we turn back to our God in repentance and supplication to "Deliver us from Evil."
     This is more than a matter of law and order; Evil does not respect the rules of a society ... it demands chaos, ruin, and death.  Are we going to wait until it targets our children, or are we going to get mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually ready to defend what's ours?

Psalm 44:5    "Through You we will push down our enemies; through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, nor shall my sword save me. But You have saved us from our enemies, and have put to shame those who hated us. In God we boast all day long, and praise Your name forever."

  1. The book called "Day of Wrath" is certainly an eye opener as you said. I recommend everyone read it and I would also suggest that this is a warning. It's a quick book to read and once you open it, you will have a hard time putting it down. Yep, it's depressing, but what he puts in this book is exactly what we've all been warned about. Just brings the whole picture into a clearer understanding. The world we all live in is not some sci-fi or Hollywood film we can turn off and go back to sleep. We're all standing in the middle of the field now wondering what direction we should take. I myself will be led by the Lord and He continues to direct me. Please continue to try to reach others and thank you for doing so.

    1. I agree! Just like Forstchen's "One Second After", this book will shake you to your core, and should be used as an impetus to develop your own plan to secure the safety of your family.

  2. I would like to think that everyone in the country is awake now, but I fear that they are not.
    Late last spring, my husband and I were in a Goodwill store in a small Midwest town. Suddenly about six men dressed in Islamic garb (slacks and a long tunic in matching color) came into the store and appeared to be on a mission. One of them grabbed up about four book bags (remember those before back packs? They look like plastic brief cases). He didn't slow down but kept moving onward. I followed one over to the toy section and he picked up a giant stuffed animal and turned it over and over doing a thorough inspection. Then he put that one down and picked up a stuffed unicorn that was attached to a plastic box that likely contained batteries at one time. Again he inspected it by turning it over and over. Red flag - people who buy stuffed toys for their kids just pick one out and throw it in the cart - especially dads. He finally decided on the unicorn. Then they all met up at the checkout. My son is a policeman, so I called him on my cell phone and he thought I was being a little paranoid. I didn't care what he thought, I knew what I was witnessing. I instructed my husband that he and I would work together to get the license plates of their vehicle. We went to the front window and watched them enter into a fairly new white Town and Country van with dark tinted windows. As the van pulled out from it's parking spot and started to turn out into the road we both moved near the window and focused on the license plate. To our utter amazement - the license plate was a yellow municipal license plate, like one that is used for those working on the State highways. Probably the most amazing thing of all though, was that I was the only one who noticed them. I told my husband - "Look around, no one even sees this going on". I wanted to shout to get everyone's attention. We are asleep! With all of the happenings in the news and the threats and the warnings that even our government keep giving us, we should be more alert than ever - but we aren't. It would be so easy for someone to come in and commit this horrendous campaign, which you write about.
    I did send an email to the CIA as soon as I got home. I told them the name and location of the store and the exact time it occurred thinking that they could ask for a video camera and check on the purchases. No one ever contacted me for more information. Perhaps they still checked into it - I will never know.
    By the way, as we left the Goodwill, we noticed that there was an Islamic center right next door. I asked my husband to circle around. The white van was not there.
    We need to pray that our people wake up!
    A good Psalm to pray over your family for such a time as this is Psalm 91.

    1. Kim, I had a similar experience over 8 years ago in a Walmart. (Just realizing that this kind of thing has been going on under our very noses for over 8 years is sobering!) This was right after the Islamic men were stopped outside an East Coast military installation with the makings of bombs in the trunk of their car -- all the components were from Walmart. I called the FBI, and they took the information, but like you, we will never know if it was acted upon.
      I would hate to think that alert citizens are being ignored, but I hate it even more that there are so many UNalert citizens! Psalm 91 should be a daily prayer of protection for everyone!

    2. The CIA and FBI are involved. Our government is FUNDING them.

  3. I don't like what the Islamic groups or individuals do in the name of Allah. I don't agree with torture.
    This is really a dangerous view to agree with torture. Because these people have had no jury or trial and our government can then do anything they want including by torturing their own citizens. I have read about our own soldiers tortured in the Vietnam war. Torture is inhumane makes us no better than the Islamic barbarians
    Please read up on torture then decide

    1. The problem is that "torture" is a vague word and can be misused for propaganda purposes. What is torture to one person may not be to another. I don't think any sane human being would advocate the intentional harm of another. But the truth is that we live in a fallen world and war is an ugly part of our existence. Individual decisions must be made, sometimes costing innocent lives in the attempt to save more innocent lives. I don't believe anyone can paint a broad brush over the issue of what constitutes torture, what doesn't, and when -- or if -- it should be used. It is a fact that barbarism seems to be running rampant and how far are we willing to go to stop it. God help us!

  4. I so appreciate the way you started your article ... " No more excuses ! " I am really bothered by the cavalier attitude of most people that I meet. Don't rock the boat, don't cause a scene, you are paranoid and on and on it goes. I fear our politicians are exactly that ... too concerned about how " their stance " might appear to their electorate, and are willing to sell our nation down the drain to keep them getting their free stuff.

    Rom 1:20
    For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    We have no excuse ! By now we have all seen what EVIL is and what it wants. Just like our acceptance of Christy and who he is.... I fear that sometime in the future we will be reminded .... YOU HAVE NO EXCUSES for idly standing by and accepting this change in our national fiber. RB

    1. There comes a time when every man or woman must decide to remain apathetic or to become knowledgeable about his world. To deny that Evil is on the march is to invite chaos and catastrophe in your life. Know who you are, where you stand, and who you serve. There will soon come a time when those factors will come into play and determine your future. God Bless!

  5. Christians aren't awake. I still have friends who refuse to think America is going to collapse. Muslims are invading our land now that the borders are "open". And president o (can't even say his name out of disgust) is bringing radical muslims into our country as "refugees". An attack will happen here again. Make a plan with your child for an escape route home from school and to be aware of their surroundings. Stock up on food and water because if the banks go down, you can't buy food. Get your money out of the bank and buy gold and silver. Your 401k will be ransacked so get it out of the bank's hands. I'm just telling you practical steps for preparation. Set your house in order. The second Great Depression is coming soon.

    1. You, my friend, are wise! It's best to lay it on the line; no more time for political correctness or "hinting" at what "might happen". When Evil is out in the open and boldly proclaiming its' plans, then only the foolish will choose to ignore the warnings. Just because people call themselves Christians will not guarantee that they will escape the coming mayhem. Now is the time to prepare physically and spiritually!
