2 Samuel 24:25 New American Standard Bible
25 David built there an altar to the Lord and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. Thus the Lord was moved by prayer for the land, and the plague was held back from Israel.
Instead of praying, some of us are rioting. Fortunately, the riots are losing popularity.
The Chinese Communist coronavirus isn’t the only epidemic in the land.
America’s news media are suffering mass amnesia, stuffing down a memory hole the extent of destruction from the ongoing Black Lives Matter/Antifa race riots.
Apart from lots of happy stories depicting the whole country kneeling to the BLM’s anti-White, Marxist demands, you won’t see much about the real costs. (continued here (washingtontimes.com))
Recent news, pointing to leaked video footage prosecutors kept hid from the public, indicates that at the very least the police did not intend to harm George Floyd, Leaked Bodycam Footage Of George Floyd’s Arrest Provides New Context To Police Apprehension (thefederalist.com). When prosecutors selectively withheld pertinent information from the public, did they intentionally inflame race riots? That needs to be investigated.
Because of the Coronavirus (COVID -19) and the race riots, commerce has nearly ceased in major urban areas. Will we abandon our cities to chaos? To what extent? Why are we behaving this way?
So, what is the point of this post? Pray for an end to the riots and for an end to the plague. Pray for Americans to repent of their unbelief, to open their Bibles and regain their sanity in the Word of God.
