There have been some really terrifying and horrible things happening lately both near and far. That is because although we live in an earthly environment with earthly values, man fails to consider that this is not our end—eternity is. Due to technology, we are witness to the atrocities facing many of our holy brethren, to quote Hebrews. Our hearts scream “why” and “how” can this be happening. We fail to realize that this is not a new phenomenon. As far back as Cain killing his brother Abel we have seen that men have a mindset that they are invincible. That is why Cain felt empowered to kill. What he did not consider is that as we saw in Hebrews 4, nothing is hidden from the Lord God Almighty. All things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him who is holy righteous and is omnipotent. Cain soon found out, as many who have this warped mindset, there will be an accounting. That is why we can boldly state as the psalmist: no matter what man considers his “just” action against me, we can ask: “what can mere man do to me?
Jesus reminded us of this principle: Mat 10:28 Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
We know and trust that God will set the record straight one day.
Men distort what we say in an effort to confuse. Their thoughts are evil, and like Cain, they take the advantage to attack and sometimes even wait to take our lives. Sometimes they are even successful in that attempt. That is why we must remember that although they think “The Lord does not see, Nor does the God of Jacob pay heed. [Psa 94:7] they will find out that they are the fool because God will not be mocked, for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. [Gal 6]
