Stopping Hatred

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1

The past several years here in America there has been much talk about gun control stopping acts of violence against innocent victims. What causes this in the first place is not the guns, but it is sheer hatred for another. For those of us who claim to not hate anyone it is hard to fathom just how someone could hate Christians, Jews, and Americans so bad that they would kill them at any expense. Only God can set us free from this cycle of hatred. Many false voices try to plant seeds of anger and division in our hearts and some of these are at the highest government level. 

First off when it comes to Islam, these folks are not guided by love but by the Quran and a whole different mindset and god. No true loving God tells people to hate others and kill an entire race of people or as they call us 'infidels'. The God of the Bible is about peace, love, forgiveness, redemption, kindness, freedom, and truth not hate, violence, prejudice, anger, rage,rape, lying, division. We are to not be fearful but to keep praying. As mad as we may be at those in our own country who say this is not a problem all we can do is pray for them and not stop. 

In order to change a person needs to turn away from sin and give their heart to Jesus. If you yourself are struggling with hate for others why not ask God to do that transforming work today and set you free. 

PRAYER: Oh Lord Jesus our nation is not taking care of who is being allowed within our borders and is letting people in that seek to destroy us. First I pray for this practice to stop. Next I pray for a transformation of hearts of those who hate not just Americans and Jewish people but who hate anything. The word hate has been misused as well in this nation simply if I disagree with a lifestyle I am said to hate it. I know Lord that is not true. Guide us to the perfect truth found only in your Word. In Jesus' name. Amen.
