Recently, while discussing the authenticity, or the lack
thereof, of the 'Protocols of the Wise Elders of Zion', one
of my readers brought up the topic of the German holocaust
in order to point out the evil fruit which had resulted from
the belief in said documents. Like many who have blindly
accepted the words of historians and the propaganda of the
Zionist-controlled media, this person referred to the 'six
million innocents' who had died at the hand of Adolf Hitler
during World War II. As I have made abundantly clear in a
number of my politically-oriented articles, due to my
personal understanding of God's Word, I do not believe that
it is the responsibility of the modern Christian to become
entangled in worldly affairs. There are many verses to
support this view, but for brevity's sake, I will quote but
two of them:

"...My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of
this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not
be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from
hence." (John 18:36)

"If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but
because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out
of the world, therefore the world hateth you."
(John 15:19)

However, while I do not actively participate in politics, I
do have my views; and I will discuss an issue, such as the
holocaust, when it is in some way related to our Christian
faith and heritage. While this will undoubtedly shock and
possibly even offend some of my readers, I am not personally
convinced that six million Jewish people were cold-bloodedly
slaughtered during the second World War. Before you arrive
at erroneous conclusions, allow me to continue by clarifying
that I am not saying that no Jews were killed during that
time; but what I am suggesting is that the number of victims
has been greatly exaggerated by the Jews, and/or by their
puppets, in order to use this piece of information to their
own advantage.

Allow me to explain. It is my belief that the number 'six
million' has been carefully and intentionally etched into
our minds as a sort of buzz word which, when read, heard or
spoken, will create a desired response within us. It is very
similar to the experiments carried out by noted Russian
physiologist and Nobel Prize winner Ivan Petrovich Pavlov.
It is from his work that we derive the term 'Pavlov dog'. An
example of the 'Pavlov dog' response is teaching a rat that
it will be rewarded with a piece of cheese if it finds the
correct path through the maze. By being repeatedly subjected
to a certain set of stimuli, such as an electrical shock, or
the sound of a bell, or a flashing light, the correct path
is eventually burned into the mind of the animal. As I point
out in the 'The International Jew And The Protocols Of
Zion', this is precisely how we non-Jews, that is, Gentiles,
are viewed by the Jews. We are non-human. We are cattle. We
are animals meant to be trained for the use of our Jewish
masters.

In the case of the holocaust, the term 'six million' is used
as a stimuli to create an inner response which is usually a
combination of horror, guilt and sympathy; horror for what
Adolf Hitler is alleged to have done, guilt for allowing it
to happen, or simply because we are a part of the white
race, and sympathy for the Jewish victims and survivors of
his treacherous acts. In short, the term 'six million' is
used to shape world opinion in favor of the Jew in order to
bring about a certain result which will be advantageous to
the Zionist cause. This is the very same purpose of such
things as the various holocaust museums around the world.
While the world at large would just rather forget the entire
incident and place it in the past, just like the bombing of
Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Viet Nam war, etc., the Jews
want to make sure that this never happens. They want to use
Hitler's atrocities as long as they possibly can to reap as
many benefits as they possibly can.

As I mention in other articles, in a sense, the Catholic
Church and certain other religions do the very same thing.
Through instilling a strong sense of guilt in their members
through such things as crucifixes, pictures of the
crucifixion, repetitive prayers of repentance, and the gloom
which accompanies some of their other rituals, these people
are made to feel a certain dependence upon their particular
church or organization. In the case of Roman Catholics, they
are erroneously led to believe that Salvation is only to be
found in the 'holy mother church'. Thus, the cycle remains
unbroken, and the Catholic faithful, regardless of their own
impoverished state, continue to attend their church and fill
the coffers of their spiritual overlords.

In thinking about this idea of 'six million' Jews being
slaughtered by Hitler and his cronies, I was reminded of a
few verses from the Old Testament. As we know from Biblical
history, once ancient Israel had grown into a great nation
in the lush lowland of Goshen in northern Egypt, the Lord
put on the pressure in order to drive them out, so that they
would obey Him and migrate northeastward to the land He had
promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Two years after their
miraculous deliverance, when Moses performed a census of the
people, excluding the Levites, the women, the young children
and the old men, we are told that there were over six
hundred and three thousand fighting men of twenty years of
age or older:

"So were all those that were numbered of the children of
Israel, by the house of their fathers, from twenty years old
and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Israel;
Even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand
and three thousand and five hundred and fifty. But the
Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered
among them." (Numbers 1:45-47)

I think it is a fair estimate to say then, that after
several hundred years of bondage, when the Children of
Israel finally left Egypt, they were at the very least a
good one million strong, and possibly more, if we include
all of the women, children and old people. To continue, as I
point out in 'The Fruits Of Disobedience', because of their
sins of rebellion and unbelief, the Lord caused the now
liberated children of Israel to wander in the wilderness of
the deserts of Sinai for forty years until the complaining
older generation had died off. This number was based on the
number of days that the Tribal Elders had spied out the land
of Canaan. According to the Lord's command, the only two of
that older generation who survived the ordeal of the desert,
were Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jehunneh:

"And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, How
long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur
against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of
Israel, which they murmur against me. Say unto them, As
truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine
ears, so will I do to you: Your carcases shall fall in this
wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to
your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which
have murmured against me, Doubtless ye shall not come into
the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell
therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son
of Nun. But your little ones, which ye said should be a
prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land
which ye have despised. But as for you, your carcases, they
shall fall in this wilderness. And your children shall
wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your
whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.
After the number of the days in which ye searched the land,
even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your
iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of
promise. I the LORD have said, I will surely do it unto all
this evil congregation, that are gathered together against
me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there
they shall die. And the men, which Moses sent to search the
land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur
against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land, Even
those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land,
died by the plague before the LORD. But Joshua the son of
Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men
that went to search the land, lived still."
(Numbers 14:26-38)

As the previous Scriptures reveal, all of the six hundred
thousand men of war died of old age or else of other causes
without having ever reached the Promised Land of Canaan. It
is for this reason that the Lord instructed Joshua to
perform a second circumcision:

"And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the
people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the
men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they
came out of Egypt. Now all the people that came out were
circumcised: but all the people that were born in the
wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, them
they had not circumcised. For the children of Israel walked
forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were
men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because
they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD
sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD
sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that
floweth with milk and honey." (Joshua 5:4-6)

So basically, what we see here is that during that forty
year period of wandering in the wilderness, due to their
disobedience and unbelief, the Lord slew about the same
number of men who had come out of Egypt, that is, around six
hundred thousand people. If you will read such articles as
'The Fruits Of Disobedience', 'The Children Of God And
Politics', 'The Seven Heads', etc., you will discover that
every time the Children of Israel went astray, the Lord
severely dealt with them by permitting their foreign enemies
to come in and chastise them. In some instances, such as
with Babylon, this chastisement included years of slavery.
Following the Seventy Years of Captivity, we are told in the
Book of Ezra that some fifty thousand people returned to
rebuild Jerusalem:

"Now these are the children of the province that went up out
of the captivity, of those which had been carried away, whom
Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away unto
Babylon, and came again unto Jerusalem and Judah, every one
unto his city;...The whole congregation together was forty
and two thousand three hundred and threescore, Beside their
servants and their maids, of whom there were seven thousand
three hundred thirty and seven: and there were among them
two hundred singing men and singing women."
(Ezra 2:1, 64-65)

Moving up several thousand years in history to the first
century, we discover that in 70 A.D., Titus, the son of
Emperor Vespasian, and a future Emperor himself, invaded
Jerusalem with the Roman legions. This of course was in
direct fulfillment of the Lord's own words in Matthew
chapter twenty-four:

"And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his
disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the
temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these
things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here
one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down."
(Matthew 24:1-2)

As I explain in some of the aforementioned articles, this
invasion was clearly yet another chastisement from the Lord
due to the sins of rebellion and unbelief of the Jewish
people; and specifically because the self-righteous Jews had
murdered the very Son of God! In fact, in this case, they
asked to be judged for their own sins when they cried out:

"...His blood be on us, and on our children."
(Matthew 27:25)

As a result of this vicious attack by the ruthless Imperial
Roman forces, the Second Temple was totally destroyed, and
the population of Jerusalem was slaughtered. Different
sources I have read state that during an approximate three
and a half year period, as many as one million Jews may have
been killed by Roman hands. I suppose we will never know the
true number as it is lost to history. For the sake of
argument, let us assume that it was one million.

Keeping in mind the previous figures, let us now move up to
our current day. As I explain in 'The Seven Heads' series,
as late as the early nineteenth century, the population of
Jerusalem was under ten thousand inhabitants. This was due
primarily to the various invasions and occupations by the
Muslims and the so-called 'Christian' Crusaders, which had
reduced the Jewish population to only a few souls. If we
consider the reasons for all past invasions as found in the
Bible, we can only conclude once again that these too must
have been due to the Lord's Hand of chastisement against a
rebellious unbelieving people. By the middle of the
nineteenth century, the Jewish population of Jerusalem had
risen to some five thousand souls. As I write this today in
May of 1998, the total population of the state of Israel is
just under six million inhabitants. If I recall correctly,
the entire worldwide population of Jews is estimated at
around fourteen million, but please don't quote me on this.

Based on all of the previous examples of God's chastisements
against the Jews, and the numbers involved, doesn't it seem
rather odd to you that in a matter of a few years, Adolf
Hitler was successfully able to massacre six million of
these people? In other words, we are being asked to not only
believe that he killed what amounts to the entire population
of current-day Israel, but we are also being asked to
believe that the world was not privy to it, or else that it
simply turned a blind eye to this hideous act and allowed
Hitler to get away with it for a time. Doesn't this seem to
defy logic? Doesn't it seem to be exaggerated for the very
same purposes I described earlier? I will leave it up to you
the reader to come to your own conclusions.

The next point I wish to address is the fact that this
particular reader referred to the slaughtered Jews as
'innocents'. Obviously, this idea is a complete fallacy.
This is clearly proven by such verses as the following:

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
(Romans 3:23)

"...The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They
are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none
that doeth good." (Psalms 14:1b)

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we
were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

"Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto
sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord."
(Romans 6:11)

"And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin;
but the Spirit is life because of righteousness."
(Romans 8:10)

As can be clearly seen, we are all born in sin. We all start
out on equal footing before God. He alone is the one Who
determines innocence, and not we humans. The only innocence,
and the only righteousness that we have is through faith in
the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ. If we reject His loving
Sacrifice as the Jews have done repeatedly for thousands of
years, then we have nothing to look forward to but wrath and
death as is born out by the following verses:

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is
eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)

"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he
that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath
of God abideth on him." (John 3:36)

As I mention in the 'International Jew And The Protocols Of
Zion' series, while I cannot prove this equivocally, I
entertain the possibility that the Lord may hold the Jews
more responsible than any other nation or people upon the
face of this Earth if they choose not to repent of their
unbelief. This is because they have had the Truth longer
than anyone else. They had Moses and the Prophets, they had
Jesus Christ, and they had His Disciples. They had the very
Oracles of God! The Lord even went so far as to make them
the guardians of His Word. Despite all of these things, they
have turned out to be the most antichrist people upon the
face of the Earth; yet, even in this, God has a plan.
Consider what Paul wrote in his Epistle to the Romans:

"For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of
this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits;
that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the
fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall
be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the
Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For
this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their
sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your
sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for
the fathers' sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are
without repentance. For as ye in times past have not
believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their
unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that
through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath
concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy
upon all. O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and
knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and
his ways past finding out!" (Romans 11:25-33)

What happened in Nazi Germany was tragic; from a human point
of view it was wrong; however, what we all need to learn to
do is to look beyond the physical occurrences, and seek out
their spiritual cause. This can be a very difficult thing to
do. Most people are too proud and unwilling to do this. They
don't want to want to admit that perhaps God is dealing with
them. It makes them very uncomfortable. It destroys their
public reputation, or else it bursts the false inflated
image they have of themselves. Due to the hardness of their
own hearts, they prefer to attribute God's chastisements to
natural scientific causes such as meteorological patterns,
tectonic plate movement, 'el nino', and other things. They
prefer to be deceived; and therefore, as the Apostle Paul
wrote, they heap unto themselves teachers with itching ears
who will tell them exactly what they want to hear:

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound
doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to
themselves teachers, having itching ears;"
(2 Timothy 4:3)

If my readers expect me to be like that, then they have come
to the wrong place. I tend to tell it like it is. I am
interested only in the Truth, regardless of how many people
it may offend. I am not in this ministry to gain popularity;
I am in it to tell the Truth, and to win as many to Christ
as I possibly can. While my views on the reason for the
holocaust may be unpopular, they are nevertheless
Scripturally sound. If God chose to chastise those Jews, it
is for a reason which He alone knows. It is not for us to
question His ways, for as He said through the Prophet
Isaiah:

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your
ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher
than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my
thoughts than your thoughts." (Isaiah 55:8-9)

I also believe in the absolute Power of God. I believe He
could have prevented the holocaust if He had so desired. The
fact that He didn't should tell us something. Do you
honestly think that the Lord allowed the slaughter of an
undetermined number of Jews just so one man, (Hitler), could
fill up his cup of iniquity? I seriously doubt it. I don't
think the Lord is going to allow any man to kill 'six
million' people just so He can righteously judge him. I
think there is more here than what some people are willing
to admit. Allow me to ask you the reader a question: Does
God take care of His own or doesn't He? Do you believe the
following verses with all your heart?:

"And we know that all things work together for good to them
that love God, to them who are the called according to his
purpose." (Romans 8:28)

"The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear
him, and delivereth them." (Psalms 34:7)

"A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy
right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee."
(Psalms 91:7)

I believe that God is in absolute control of everything that
happens on this planet. When he releases Satan's wrath, it
is for a darn good reason. When He removed His Aura of
Protection, and permitted Satan to afflict Job, it was for a
very specific reason: Job had some important lessons to
learn about humility. I have spoken about this in many of my
articles. As I pointed out earlier, when God punished the
Children of Israel throughout the Old Testament, it was
because He was dealing with their sins. In like manner, if
He allowed Hitler to do what he did, even if the number is
greatly exaggerated, it is also for a very good reason.

These ideas are Biblical truth which absolutely no one can
deny. To do so is to deny the Sovereignty and the Power of
Almighty God. Perhaps those Jews may have been innocent in
the eyes of the world who have been duped by Zionist
propaganda and controlled mass media; but in God's eyes they
apparently were not. To suggest that those people were
innocent, is to say that God made a mistake; it is to judge
God; and that is precisely what Satan did: 'Well, if I were
God, that isn't how I would do things! If it were up to me,
I would run things differently!'...and soon he will get his
chance!

At this point, some might argue, 'Well, what about the
millions of Christians who died under Roman persecution?
What about the Prophets who died in the Old Testament? What
about those who died under the Catholic Inquisition?' What
about all of the Christians who have died in foreign
countries since then? Was God dealing with them as well? Did
He remove His Protection from them?'. Frankly, I think that
such questions are ludicrous and totally baseless. It is
grabbing at straws. In my view, to lump Christians and
non-believers together in one pile is an err in judgment. As
the Apostle Paul and others clearly point out, when those
early Prophets and then the Christians died at the hands of
their enemies, they were martyrs for the Faith. They died
for the testimony of Jesus Christ:

"These all died in faith, not having received the promises,
but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them,
and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers
and pilgrims on the earth...And these all, having obtained a
good report through faith, received not the promise: God
having provided some better thing for us, that they without
us should not be made perfect." (Hebrews 11:13, 39-40)

"And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the
altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God,
and for the testimony which they held:" (Revelation 6:9)

Just as we look back two thousand years in faith to Jesus
Christ, those in the Old Testament looked forward in faith
to the same. They knew who He was. YHVH, or Jehovah, was
none other than Jesus Christ. In fact, the Prophet Daniel
saw our Heavenly Father and Jesus together in a Celestial
Vision:

"I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient
of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the
hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the
fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire...I saw in the
night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came
with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days,
and they brought him near before him." (Daniel 7:9, 13)

The point then is this: All of God's holy children from the
Prophets of old to the Christians of today who have lost
their lives to the sword of persecution, have done so for
their faith in Jesus Christ. I have fully covered this topic
in other articles; as such, I will share but a few more
verses here:

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not
greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will
also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will
keep yours also." (John 15:20)

"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall
suffer persecution." (2 Timothy 3:12)

"Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his
saints." (Psalms 116:15)

Now let us honestly ask ourselves: Did the Jews who died
during the holocaust die for the name of the Lord Jesus
Christ? In most cases, probably not. You can attribute it to
the insanity of Adolf Hitler; you can attribute it to the
racial prejudice of the time; you can attribute it to the
fear surrounding the 'Protocols'; you can attribute it to
other socio-political motivations; but you most certainly
cannot attribute it to faith in Jesus Christ. As such, to
even compare Christian martyrdom to Jewish persecution
during World War II and suggest that this was the
persecution of God's people, or of 'innocents', as this
reader put it, is laughable. They may say they are God's
people, but until they repent of their unbelief, He has
turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to their cries. As cruel
and as heartless and this may sound, it is nevertheless a
Scriptural truth which any openminded person can discover.

When a person rejects God's love and Salvation through His
Son, sooner or later, His wrath is going to fall upon that
person. For some, it seems that this may happen in this
current life if they are evil enough. Perhaps the holocaust
was simply another one of the Lord's chastisements on a
wicked and rebellious people who have rejected His Son. As
we have already seen, God has been dealing with the Jews
non-stop since the Old Testament. Do you honestly think that
all of a sudden He has just stopped dealing with them for
some mysterious reason because we are now living in the
twentieth century? Until they repent of their unbelief, it
is my view that God will continue to chastise the Jews. In
fact, I know that this is so because, as I point out in some
of my Endtime articles, we are clearly told in the Book of
Zechariah, that Jerusalem will be invaded by the Muslim
armies, and her women ravished, and half of the city will go
into captivity:

"Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be
divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations
against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken,
and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of
the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of
the people shall not be cut off from the city."
(Zechariah 14:1-2)

In light of this fact, and the many other points I have
presented in this article, the only Scriptural conclusion to
which I can personally arrive, is that just as Hitler and
other political and military leaders of the past were God's
scourge upon a wicked and unbelieving people, a people who
still falsely claim to be His people, so too will be the
Muslims when they surround and invade Jerusalem. As the
Apostle Paul tells us, all of these people and nations have
been, or else will be God's vessels of wrath to perform His
Will:

"For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same
purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in
thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the
earth. Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy,
and whom he will he hardeneth. Thou wilt say then unto me,
Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?
Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God?
Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast
thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay,
of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another
unto dishonour? What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and
to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the
vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:" (Romans 9:17-22)

What we all need to remember is that whenever God chastises
us, it is a token of His Divine Love; even if we don't
understand it at the time. A small child doesn't always
understand a parent's motivations; and he may even hold a
grudge against him for chastising him; but hopefully,
eventually he will come to realize that the parent punished
him for his own good because he truly loves him and wants to
see him turn from the error of his ways. This is
precisely what the Apostle Paul tells us:

"And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto
you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the
chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of
him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth
every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God
dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the
father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement,
whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not
sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which
corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much
rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and
live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after
their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be
partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present
seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward
it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them
which are exercised thereby. Wherefore lift up the hands
which hang down, and the feeble knees; And make straight
paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out
of the way; but let it rather be healed. "
Hebrews 12:5-13)

Likewise in the Old Testament we find such verses concerning
discipline as the following:

"Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul
spare for his crying." (Proverbs 19:18)

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is
old, he will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6)

"The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to
himself bringeth his mother to shame." (Proverbs 29:15)

While God's punishments may at times appear to be overly
cruel and unwarranted from a human perspective, we must
always remember that, unlike corrupt Earthly judges and
impatient human parents who may at times be excessive in
their dealings with their children, the chastisements of our
Heavenly Father are always just and equal to the crime. I
would much prefer to appear in His Courts, than in the
courtroom of men. I am reminded of several of my favorite
verses from the Book of the Lamentations of Jeremiah:

"It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not. They are new every
morning: great is thy faithfulness."
(Lamentations 3:22-23)

As I mention in 'Are Personal Tragedies Due To Sin?', one
danger which we all need to watch out for, is that we do not
adopt a self-righteous attitude when we see the Lord dealing
with others; after all, we could be next in line. As the old
saying goes, 'There but for the grace of God go I'. Jesus
gave an excellent example of this in the following incident
from the Gospel of Luke:

"There were present at that season some that told him of the
Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their
sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye
that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans,
because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but,
except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those
eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them,
think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in
Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall
all likewise perish." (Luke 13:1-5)

As can be seen, whether we be Jew or Gentile, unless we
repent of our wicked unbelief and accept the Lord Jesus
Christ, we will all likewise perish. With these thoughts, I
am going to bring this article to a close. I trust that it
has been a blessing in your life.
