I Will Not Fear

“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28
Today is the anniversary of 9/11, and as a country we pause in solemnity to remember the people who lost their lives on that tragic day at the hand of terrorists. We recall with gratitude and honor those who gave their lives in the service of others. We meditate on the horror of the day and pray that we’ll never see an attack of that kind again. We pray for peace and comfort for those who mourn their lost loved ones.
When I think of 9/11, I not only think of the tragedy, but I also bring to remembrance the American resolve and the spirit of unity that formed as people rushed to aid the injured and to comfort the hurting. I have the picture in my mind of tired, blood-stained workers lifting high the American flag as a sign of hope. I also think of the prayer, the candle lighting, the fundraising, and the other acts of love performed for strangers. Wounded but not destroyed.
Today we have many enemies. Terrorists have not repented of their murderous acts. As we mourn, they celebrate. Their religion tells them to do it. They won’t stop. They don’t desire peace. We could spend our lives in fear of what they may do, but then they’ve won, haven’t they? What do terrorists want? They want to kill and incite terror. They want  to terrorize us into submission unto a false god. NO!
I will not fear what man can do. I’ve got a God who is stronger and mightier than anything the enemy can throw at me. Even if I lose my life, I’m alive in Christ. When we are in the Lord, we cannot be destroyed. Like Daniel in the lion’s den, we are surrounded by danger, but if we put our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, we have nothing to fear.
As we continue to remember 9/11, we must not forget to pray for peace. The peace we desire is not a false peace negotiated by crooked politicians and enemies with false smiles. The peace we pray for comes only from the Prince of Peace. Praying that every terrorist would fall to his knees and know the power and love of Jesus Christ. Praying for eyes to be opened. Praying for the peace of Jerusalem. Praying that every man and woman would be ready for the coming of Jesus.

Obama’s Response to the Attack on US Embassies

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Ch 7:14

Please excuse me for taking a break from my normal subject matter to interject my feelings on a most pressing issue for the American people. My heart has been saddened and my anger stirred up as I’ve been watching the events unfold over at our Embassies in Egypt and Libya over the past couple days. For those who do not know, mobs have stormed our Embassies in both of these countries. The riots started in Egypt, where the thugs tore down the American flag, replacing it with one that represents Islam and is often used by Al Queda terrorists. The riots there continue. In Libya, our Embassy was stormed and four Americans were murdered, including our Ambassador Chris Stephens. Now they are rioting at the Embassy in Yemen as well. All of it starting by design no doubt on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

To get a few more facts straight, they are claiming that these attacks were brought on by the release of a video by some guy in FL that spoke negatively about the Muslim prophet Mohammad. As the Embassy in Cairo started hearing about the riots that were about to start, they released a statement saying that they condemned misguided people hurting the feelings of Muslims. Condemn freedom of speech? It was a glorified apology to the terrorists who were almost at their gate. Then the riots started and Cairo released another statement standing by the original one.

So basically Muslim terrorists have attacked the US again, this time via our embassies, and have done so purposefully as we mourn the lives they took on 9/11/01, and our President has made it clear to them that we are sorry for hurting their feelings? Shocking. Shame on you and your administration Mr. President! I don’t care if we hurt the feelings of terrorists. Our government should be standing up for what we believe in instead of trying to appease and please these murderers. These terrorists understand nothing but violence. You won’t fix this problem by having long conversations or asking Israel to give up more land. They hate Israel and they hate us and they will continue to kill us until they have made us submit to their religion unless we stand up and do something about it!

We do not need a passive poodle in the White House, saying all the right things and looking good but without any bite in him. We need a pit bull. We need a rottweiler. We need someone who can lead America as a strong nation so that we can protect our children, our people, our ambassadors and our way of life. President Obama’s speech in the Rose Garden regarding these attacks was infuriating. There was no heart in it. His words were like dry leaves blowing in the wind. We needed to see some spirit in him. We needed to see that he was outraged by what has happened. Where is his passion? Where is his anger? We needed to see that, but more importantly the rest of the world needed to see it. The terrorists needed to see it. Stop apologizing to them and tell them this will not be tolerated. Tell them that attacks on Americans is an act of war and go after them. We will not allow it!

I think the timing is so very important here. Why are these riots breaking out? Because the terrorists see a president who is weak and who refuses to acknowledge the truth about what’s going on over there. Why is the Egyptian government not stopping the riot in Cairo? Because they don’t fear Obama. Not at all. He won’t retaliate. He won’t act. He will apologize that some little guy in FL made a movie that hurt their feelings. Stop apologizing and let our capable and amazing troops go take these guys out!

My fellow Americans, I fear to think of what will become of our nation and our foreign relations if we have another four years of this administration. It’s time to elect a new president—one who will lead our country in strength. We need a president who recognizes that we are at war with terror and that we must never back down while there are people willing to take innocent lives in the name of their religion. We need a president who will make it abundantly clear that attacks on America will not be tolerated and that to attack us is to bring peril on yourselves. It doesn’t matter if we are Republicans, Democrats or Libertarians…we need to vote for Romney for President. For the safety of our country and my family I will vote for Romney. Thanks for reading.
