Violence, Sickness and Death Will End
God's Kingdom Is "The Solution"
In #San Bernardino, California a terrorist attack on a employee gathering where fourteen were killed and more than seventeen injured. The baffling question by everyone was, "Why?" Yes, it is complicated to understand, why a mother and father would drop their six month old baby off to a grandmother and then go on a killing spree. A young woman named Vera said, "Its not difficult to understand. We must admit, we are living in the last days just as 2 Timothy 3:1-7 explains. In those verses it talk about how people would be disloyal, 'having no natural affection.' This is exactly what we see in mankind today. These verses are like reading a newspaper and are appropriate for the times we live in."
The #Presidential Address from the oval office in Washington, DC was his attempt to bring unity and peace to people in the United States. "It is the responsibility of all Americans to reject discrimination," expressed #President Obama. He went on to say, "No matter where you come, we are all equal in the eyes of God." The President's address was in response to terrorist acts, discrimination and a lack of gun control that is so exuberant today.
Mental Health Issues Will Be Eliminated
The horrific fatal #flight 9525, armed with a homicidal killer of 150 people has left the world in complete confusion in search of answers concerning "why" did #Andreas Lubitz the co-pilot commit such a heinous act. Such explanations were given by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent of Live CNN who stated that, "Lubitz received anti-psychotic medication. Someone with delusions such as Lubitz, was still able to get his pilot's license and still fly the plane. Someone should have known that. It is not about demonizing mental health. It is about getting help where it is needed."
Numerous experts have been interviewed in an attempt to explain the actions of co-pilot Lubitz. German Prosecutor Christoph Kumpa of Dusseldorf acknowledged, "We can't speculate on motive of the co-pilot. We can only communicate facts." Kumpa, then went on to explain that no evidence was found to prove what motivated Andreas Lubitz. He had "no organic illness." For a full eight minutes these 149 human beings knew that their death was eminent. Andreas Lubitz, crashed flight 9525 into the alps, killing and pulverizing the bodies of these innocent people. A viewer of these news stories stated, "Why do we need to make this murderer mentally disturbed? Call it what it is, pure murder of innocent victims." It is extremely disturbing that Lubitz was breathing normal with no expressions of "why" as he silently killed over one hundred people. What causes individuals to react so violently? In the end we must acknowledge that something possibly beyond mental instability was involved in this action.
Unfortunately, our family went through a similar situation where our nephew killed his ex-wife and himself. He wanted to commit suicide and still decided to not only kill himself but also take her innocent life, leaving their two sons without a mother or father. You can see the selfishness of my nephew based on his decision to kill. Our family had no clue that our nephew had gotten to the point of murder and suicide. Yet, this actually happened. Our families were devastated.
The Origin of Selfishness
Selfishness, began in heaven with Satan the Devil, when he desired the honor, praise and glory of our Grand Creator, Jehovah. Satan thought too much of himself because he maintained, one of the highest ranked positions within the angelic structure which had been given to Satan by God. The Devil wanted to be a god, so that people would worship him rather than Almighty God. Of course, Satan never disregarded these desires but pursued them as he persuaded other angels to follow in his footsteps which created demons. Satan and his demons were eventually cast out of heaven down to the earth based on Revelation 12:9 which states, "So down the great dragon was hurled the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth and his angels were hurled down with him." New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures
Is it possible that selfishness along with self centered ideals regardless of their mental capacities, allowed Satanic thoughts to control the minds of these murderous individuals. Lubitz, the terrorist couple and my nephew, were possessed by the devil to the point that they just wanted to destroy as many lives as they could? It became all about the demons possessing these individuals and using them as puppets. Satan, who wanted to be god, used a serpent like a puppet to deceive Adam and Eve. His tactics have not changed. How sad that even today, Satan will persuade anyone to become godlike through homicidal murder just to gain a name for themselves. We must move on and learn to talk about more positive things in the world today as we try to be the best person we can be. These demonic acts will continue to occur because they were foretold in the Bible. We must learn to be aware so that we won't be shaken.
The Solution to Selfish Acts
If we read God's word daily, we will not be devastated or shocked. We are living in the #last days of this system. Recently, news commentators have expressed that more people than ever filled out applications for guns. More weapons is definitely not the answer. Legislation on #gun control, will accomplish very little. We should look to our Heavenly Creator, Jehovah God and his precious son Jesus for the answers. There you will find peace in all their solutions.

#Terrorism, Abundant Violence, What is the answer?
Bombings in major cities such as Boston, Massachusetts, where three were killed and over one hundred and forty injured. Chemical warfare upon the residents in Syria, by members of its government. Severe floods throughout an Illinois area caused people to flee their homes. Greed and scams are abundant throughout the world causing victims pure anguish. Hacking of major websites, where personal information is stolen for criminal purposes. Innocent children and parents are killed through violent acts on a daily basis. All of these perplexing senarios, do have a solution which is Jehovah God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matthew 6: 9, 10. "You must pray then, this way. Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth." New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures
Revenge brought on by the Taliban terrorist, against the #Pakistan military caused the horrific deaths of more than one hundred and thirty children. On #Live CNN, Christiane Amanpour explained how, "A handful of Taliban suicide bombers scaled the walls of a school to kill the older children." After this massacre, parents had to then go and identify their dead loved ones. The Nobel Peace Prize winner, #Malala made this statement concerning this terrorist attack, "It was heartbreaking." She went on to express such words as, "atrocious and cowardly."
The events of this world daily, have proven that mankind desperately need the solution of their Grand Creator; due to the increase of animalistic characteristics demonstrated by people today. Imagine how a mass murderer, can look directly into the eyes of an innocent child and shoot them numerous times with a weapon or kill them with a bomb. Ezekiel the prophet described these very days we are living in by stating, ". . . like the roaring lion, tearing prey. A soul they actually devour. Treasure and precious things they keep taking. Her widows they have multiplied in the midst of her." Ezekiel 22:25 Some humans do act like animals when they kill and destroy. Millions have died in this century and centuries in the past from animalistic criminals and terrorists. These type of individuals will not be a part of God's Kingdom ruled by Jesus Christ, which is the solution to all these type of problems we experience today.

People wander the earth daily, complaining about their surroundings that are filled with violence, sickness and death. Our whimsical lifestyles are filled with materialism and "a striving after the wind," which leave many empty and hopeless. Fortunately, billions have the definitive answer on a shelf or just lying somewhere within their home. The legendary Holy Scriptures, or as many refer to this book as The Bible or God's Word. This divinely inspired book, consist of the superlative thoughts and actions of our Almighty Creator, Jehovah God. He is the originator of life. The Creator of every living being on earth and in heaven.
Our exquisite sun which brightens the day and inspires all forms of life for survival daily. The alluring and resplendent moon magnifies the sky at night with radiant light. Then our precious Creative One, gave us this elegant place to reside called, earth. Jehovah, then created man and woman to live on this place of serenity and peace, so that we could multiply and extend this blissful source of living. Obedience, was the only thing required of them. Even after Adam and Eve disobeyed Our Grand Creator, under the deceit of Satan; God still gave us His cherished and divine thoughts, through the Holy Scriptures. (Genesis chapters 1-3)
The Bible can be a "light to our roadway," in life. Through this dark world full of violence, sickness and death, we can reside in spiritual tranquility, based on the hope given to us concerning God's Kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matthew 6:9,10. By studying, meditating and applying what we learn from God's word, we can comprehend how Jesus proved that he was sent by his Heavenly Father to give his life on behalf of all mankind. (John 3:16) Before being put to death by Jehovah's enemies, Jesus proved through the performance of various miracles that he could; feed the hungry, heal the sick and raise the dead. After this spellbinding experience Jesus, sacrificed his life for all mankind, with his Heavenly Father's approval so that we might have a chance for everlasting life. What an awe inspiring gift we have received!
We Have the Solution, Now What Must We Do?
Humility, is vital in order for us to gain spiritual stability. We must put faith in the promises spoken of in the Bible. The examples of faithful servants such as King David, Abraham, Moses and Sarah, demonstrate that we do not have to be perfect but maintain obedience to God. We cannot move forward without admitting that we are in desperate need of help. Prayer, to our Heavenly Father Jehovah through his son Jesus Christ is important. When we take in accurate knowledge of our Creator's purpose based on John 17:3 which states, "This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ." If we adhere to God's regulations and do not fall by the wayside to false teachings and lies, we will be part of this promised paradise on earth without sickness, death, pain or sorrow. (Revelation 21;3.4) This is my prayer and hope for all mankind, that all violence, sickness and death will end soon; when God's Kingdom rules over all the earth in the future.
