DO NOT BE DECEIVED: The current rise in violence across major US cities plays right into the devil’s, aka Satan’s plans to STEAL peoples SALVATION because he knows the word of God: “The LORD trieth the righteous: but [THE WICKED AND HIM THAT LOVETH VIOLENCE HIS SOUL HATETH]” (Psalm 11:5).
People ALL OVER THIS WORLD would be WISE to come to KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH and CEASE from LIES, VIOLENCE, HATRED AND KILLING AND WICKEDNESS!
The word of God says: “God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.
The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and [WILL NOT AT ALL ACQUIT THE WICKED]: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet” (Hanhum 1:2-3).
The Apostle Paul said: “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, [VENGEANCE IS MINE; I WILL REPAY, SAITH THE LORD]” (Romans 12:19).
“[RECOMPENSE TO NO MAN EVIL FOR EVIL]. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, [LIVE PEACEABLY WITH ALL MEN]. Be not overcome of evil, but [OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD]” (Romans 12:17-18, 21).
Our Lord Jesus says: “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: [BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT YE RESIST NOT EVIL]: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
[BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES], bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
[THAT YE MAY BE THE CHILDREN OF YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN: FOR HE MAKETH HIS SUN TO RISE ON THE EVIL AND ON THE GOOD, AND SENDETH RAIN ON THE JUST AND ON THE UNJUST]” (Matthew 5:38-39-45).
The Apostle Paul also said: “[BE YE THEREFORE FOLLOWERS OF GOD], as dear children; [AND WALK IN LOVE, AS CHRIST ALSO HATH LOVED US], and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour” (Ephesians 4:27, 5:1-2).
Finally, Jesus also says: “[BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS]: for they shall be called the [CHILDREN OF GOD]. [BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART: FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD]” (Matthew 5:8-9).
