Yesterday I met with two Russian evangelists that have immigrated to the United States but travel extensively back and forth into Russia in an effort to evangelize that vast land. Theirs is a daunting challenge, because almost all of Russia is atheistic, (which is the ugly byproduct of the near annihilation of all Christians at the ruthless evil hands of Stalin and Lenin during the wicked, murderous days of communism and the Soviet Union).
These evangelists want to translate my book, Miracle on Luckie Street to Russian and distribute it throughout that land. They mentioned that it is a country almost entirely devoid of hope, and they told me that one hardly ever sees anyone smile there.
Hmmm . . . It’s kind of hard to smile when you want to cry. The pain of the non-Christian world is easy to distinguish just by simple observation.
Nowhere have I noticed this phenomenon more than when observing the expression on the faces of radical Islamists that are so often splashed all over the media? Just Google up photos of those five murderous terrorist leaders that were incarcerated in Gitmo that our prez traded for the Afghanistan Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl and you will see pure hatred, especially in their mean eyes.
I watched a five minute video last night on the real problem going on in the Middle East conflict. I urge you to check it out; it is the best and most concise explanation of the problem that I’ve seen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EDW88CBo-8&feature=youtu.be
Did you notice the motto of Hamas in the video? “We love death as much as the Jews love life!”
Members of Hamas love death?
What kind of person advocates loving death? The Bible has the answer in John 8:44:
For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does.
He was a murderer from the beginning.
My new Russian friends told me that my personal story is one of hope through Jesus Christ. I agreed to allow them to translate and reproduce the book free of charge and use it however they could to reach those 300 million or so lost souls who are filled with the hopelessness of a world gone mad. I even agreed to rewrite it into a much shorter, less expensive version in order to reduce the cost of printing and distribution. (Just what I need another project – What was I thinking?)
In this country, (unlike many countries throughout the world), practically everyone has heard the word of God preached and yet we keep right on sinning and not surprisingly we are seeing less and less smiles in our own country. What does that say about our nation? God has an answer to that question below and also what He intends to do about it. Time is short. Turn to Jesus Christ and away from sin and satan – Time is getting VERY short . . .
1 John 3:8
But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil
