When the righteous flourish, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, people groan.” Proverbs 29:2 (HCSB)

In the wake of the shooting at Lakewood Church, there is a bill being put forth that will make it illegal for churches to have armed security guards on site! What?! This is being proposed by Senators Edward Markey (D-MA) and Laphonza Butler (D-CA). This bill would make the security team at a church liable in the event that an active shooter was shot and killed in a worship service setting. This team would be subject to criminal charges and penalties that range from 5 years to life! I wonder if these politicians want unarmed security details protecting them?

Btw, while politicians push for harder laws against gun owners, the states that have the most stringent guns laws have the highest crime. Where civilians are disarmed, criminals are the only ones with weapons, and they rule! With our open borders, guns, drugs, gangs, terrorists and mentally disturbed people pour in without restrictions!

Isn’t it said that the best deterrent from enemy attack or invasion is a strong military. Imagine getting rid of our weapons, and weakening our military. Oh, I guess you don’t need to imagine that because it has already been happening. Well, our weakness emboldens our enemies. We are threatened today because our military has been weakened through woke policies, and decommissioned weaponry. So, if that is the case nationally, how much more personally, over our cities, our churches and our homes. Should we not be able to protect and defend ourselves from evil, whether it be from the outside or in?!

Nevertheless, our protection comes from the Lord! Cry out for warring and protection angels to surround your church, your home, your family and yourself. Declare that your church has a wall of fire around it and the glory of God within (Zechariah 2:5). Pray Psalm 91 over your life, your family, your pastor and your church, daily! As we hide ourselves in the shelter of the Most High, declare that no weapon formed against us will prosper. And please do, pray this bill would be seen for what it is and would die before it becomes law!

I’ll wrap up this post by saying, Jesus is coming back as a lion! Though He is returning for His prepared bride (Revelation 19), He is coming back to vanquish evil, to rule and reign with an iron scepter, to judge with a two-edged sword coming out of His mouth, and to release justice upon His enemies!!! His roar is already being heard!!! Though evil is constantly getting more blatant, guess what, it is also being exposed! Unrighteous judges, leaders, politicians, businessmen, and influencers are being seen for who and what they are… as absolutely evil. The Lord is saying, “Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with the grave will not stand. When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by you will be beaten down by it” (Isaiah 28:18).
