Listening to Wanna-be-leaders is convincing, that they do Not have a clue - that they are following Prophecy from 2,000 - 4,000 yrs. ago. Terror and war are not new: with the common denominator being covetousness = extreme greed; an insatiable appetite for power. For 2,015 yrs. the "wars and rumors of war" have been over Empires expanding, and people fighting against the expansion: this is fairly simple.
"Peace and Security" is the hot topic: but it can Not come from man. Psalms 127 "Except the LORD builds the city, they labor in vain that build it: Except the LORD keeps the city, the watchman wake but in vain."
Our LORD states "If you love ME, keep MY Commandments." We have been Commanded not to follow Blind-leaders "let them alone."
As individuals, how do we distance ourselves from the mess? Is.54:14 "In Righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from Oppression; for thou shalt not Fear: and from Terror; for it shall not come near thee."
With the Locust-Army[Joel2, Is.54:16, Rev.9:3]coming down the tracks, one simply has to reposition their thoughts: then get off the track. Thoughts? Yes: No man or system can Save. "Without Faith in our LORD, it is impossible to please HIM." The LORD knows those that are HIS[2Tim:19]. They must have HIS-Spirit: The-Holy-Spirit, our Comforter, is Immanuel's-Spirit.
