Things were abnormal for us on the morning of September 11th, 2001. We were out of sorts. We had just brought our new born son, Jacob, home from the hospital on Sunday afternoon the 9th. That morning I woke up and turned on the news to see everyone talking about a small plane that had flown into one of the towers. Just a few minutes later, I was watching live as the second plane hit the 2nd Tower, and we knew this was no accident. We were under attack!
Let us remember and remain vigilant concerning the threats of our world and never given in to the political correctness that would ultimately destroy us. Bible teacher, Chuck Missler is often asked, "where is the USA in Bible prophecy?" His answer is: "It is conspicuously absent!" Why? What happens to America. Is it that we were not able to stand our ground? Or was America so weakened after the Rapture because enough people were taken to be with the Lord due to a new awakening? Whatever the answer, it is up to us to continue to serve the Lord with gladness and to be the Salt and Light of the earth.
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. - Matthew 5:13-16
Salt's main purpose in Bible days was to preserve meats. We need to be a preserving influence and to awaken a thirst for the things of God in others. Light destroys darkness and helps us to see. Help others to see by Being a light in your world today! God Bless!
