Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), we'll be discussing some rather heartbreaking issues that happened, here in Canada.
Outside Montreal is where the first incident took place.
Here is an article published by the National Post entitled, Driver who ran over two Canadian soldiers near Montreal, 'had become radicalized,' PMO says: http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/10/20/driver-runs-over-two-canadian-soldiers-outside-montreal-police-shoot-and-kill-driver-after-high-speed-chase/.
It is clear that the person who ran down, and injured two (2) Canadian soldiers, did so as an apparent terrorist attack.
Unfortunately, one (1) of the soldiers died. Here's a link by The Independent entitled, Canadian soldier dies after being run over by suspected Islamic extremist: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/canadian-soldier-dies-after-being-run-over-by-suspected-islamist-extremist-9808851.html.
Then, on Wednesday, October 22nd, a soldier was shot at the National War Memorial, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
The shooter ran into our Parliament building, and began shooting. He was killed, there.
CBC News posted article and video entitled, Parliament Hill attack: 1 gunman dead after soldier shot at National War Memorial. Here is a link so you can check it out: http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/parliament-hill-attack-1-gunman-dead-after-soldier-shot-at-national-war-memorial-1.2808710.
CTV News posted an article and video series entitled, Canada will never be intimidated, Harper says after shootings in Ottawa. Here is a link so you can read and watch/listen: http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/canada-will-never-be-intimidated-harper-says-after-shootings-in-ottawa-1.2065443.
All I can say, is that we live in a truly evil world. A world, whose god is Satan.
Thinking about what will happen in this world, made me think about Revelation 6:7-8, "And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth."
Whether or not the fourth seal has truly been opened, I cannot say. Only God knows for sure.
However, I do believe that Islam has been sending their people to countries all over the world. And, after many countries ignoring the fact that non-Muslims have been murdered if they didn't convert to Islam, it makes me wonder if in fact, that is why so many areas of the earth, Islamists feel they have power over part of the earth. Power to kill with sword, and more.
What can we do about it?
Nothing much, in my opinion... other than do whatever we can to protect ourselves, and others.
Even so, as a Christian, I do believe that we need to stand up, speak out against what Islam is doing. By speaking up and out, we can open the door for others to become aware that their lives may end, through terrorist acts. Acts that may kill people by bombings, or by cutting off heads.
By speaking up and out, unsaved people may come to the realization that their lives will be at risk. And, they may die.
I believe this will open the door for the unsaved to realize that when they die, there will only be two (2) places for them to spend eternity. Heaven... or Hell.
For those who realize they don't want to spend eternity in Hell, with no chance of escape, I believe many will come to Christ, by trusting in/believing upon Jesus. By doing so, they will be able to spend eternity in Heaven.
So, my question to you, is: Where will you spend eternity?
Until next time...
