I have no idea how it would feel to lose a child. I can't even begin to imagine how it would feel to bury a son that had been murdered by his brother!! The first murder in the Bible is "Brother killing Brother", so goes the first chapters of the Bible, so goes the world!! Our nation barely gets past one season of mourning and we are in a state of mourning again. In Charleston, SC nine innocent people were murdered by a very mentality unstable person. He walked into their church, of all places, sat with them an hour and shot them down without a chance!! Our nation mourns the deaths of these precious people and we pray for their families!! Our walls have been breached by a "Spirit of Division" which brings with it destruction and death!!
"And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand."
(Mark 3:25 KJV)
We must be united in things of value realizing we will never all be the same, we will never all look the same, speak the same language but we can unite against evil!!! Jesus Christ taught us to pray, "Deliver us from evil", the spirit of evil and hatred brought this tragedy to pass!! God's Word tells us that we, his followers, have the power to heal this land!! We must stop killing our fellow Americans and cry out to God for healing. " 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 Chronicles 7:14 KJV) As Adam dug the grave for one son, I'm sure he wept for both sons because life would never be the same again in their family which is our family. "United we stand, Divided we fall!"
