LIVE PEACEABLY WITH ALL MEN
What's a Christian to do as the one world order rapidly falls into place right before our eyes? Do we buy guys and arm ourselves? What would Jesus do? What did the early disciples do?

LIKE THEIR LORD, THE DISCIPLES TRUSTED IN THEIR GOD AND HARMED NO ONE. Did they loose their lives? Yes. Remember, this is not our home - we are just passing through and our job is to glorify God in all that we think, say and do, sharing the love of the resurrected Christ wherever we go.

I have heard Christians today say they need to defend their family and will kill if need be. Is this what the Bible teaches? No! Jesus said, "Love your enemies".

Don't allow Satan to provoke you to sin and possibly loose your salvation. There is an evil agenda to stir up the Christians to panic and be fearful, but we must remember: For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. And For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Paul wrote to the believers in Rome, "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. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." Romans 12:17-21

Our battle is NOT against flesh and blood but against Satan and his demons. As followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, may we each read the Word of God, obey what it says, and live peaceably with all men!
