Fear is fed by hurt, hopelessness and the lack of Love. Which causes people to lashes out, it doesn't matter if it is races, religion, creed, etc. The evil of sin, which created Fear is the enemy of all mankind. As the scriptures ring TRUTH: "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." ~ 1 John 4:18
It is this PERFECT LOVE, YAH asked us to strive for, beyond all rewards. LOVE equals LIFE. That Yeshua, the Christ is the perfect example for us: "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you." ~ John 15:12-15
There is no better example than Yeshua, that he lay down his life that we may gain it back, because we are already dead in the spirit.
These men and women who lash out against others were already dead in the spirit, so without hope, love and healing how would he value his life or others? Yes, evil may have targeted Christians, Muslims, blacks, whites, culture and/or customs, that's not the real issue. Any True Christian, who know the words of the scriptures, these last days will be full of tribulations. Certainly, true biblical Christian will feel the affects and we will be face the burden.
The issue is LOVE THY NEIGHBOR, AS CHRIST LOVE US! Reach out, our Mission fields are right in front of us. Give Love, before Love is completely taken away from the boy, girl, man and woman. FEAR in the FLESH is our weakness. Satan and the other fallen spirits and yes, the mankind working in conjunction with them, know this weakness, very well and use it against us everyday.
Many may have never felt the LOVE of Christ, even among the church goers. The Church has no excuse. Don't just be a goer, but we must be doers. Not just listeners, but doers!
Understand WHY Christ gave us a NEW COMMANDMENT: "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." ~ John 13:34
We are to be EXAMPLE to the WORLD, as Yeshua was an example to us.
The Father YAH and his Christ knew that the lack of value for oneself was going to flee from us. In that one statement shows the TRUE HOLY HEAVENLY FATHER and his Christ has the value for us inside Themselves, because the Father taught the Son, that value for us.
Mourn, Yes. Pray, Yes! Forgive, Yes! LOVE, YES! Until the day Yeshua comes back and beyond!
YHVH Bless, Peace and Prayers!
