Various sides and positions are polarizing, whether it’s in Turkey or the United States. Because of that, violence is rising everywhere. That shouldn’t be surprising because we were told this would occur in the last days. But that doesn’t mean we should look at it with a casual eye and just shake out heads. There is torture, brutality and death occurring across the globe, and that is very real for those trapped in various situations and nations. They should be in our prayers as we intercede on their behalf.
Just because we aren’t personally experiencing that level of suffering doesn’t mean that we can afford to look away and forget. In the United States, what we appear to be seeing is a disintegration within the Democratic Party and the exposure of excessive corruption behind the scenes. Part of that comes from the desperation of those seeking to maintain power and to force their agenda for radical change on the nation. The Hard Left is ruthless in its pursuit of its aims, yet they appear to be stumbling. For that, we must thank God. But though it seems that we may be given a reprieve, we’re seeing God’s warning about judgment as well, and that too should drive us to our knees. We may be regaining some lost ground, but we haven’t won a war. That still continues, and eventually it will become even more fierce.
