Everything in this life happens for a reason.
The great tsunami in Japan, the series of furious record breaking tornadoes that swept across the US, the political turmoil and chaos in the Middle East, the massacre of hapless innocent victims in Oslo, Norway, in the US and around the world, people taking their own lives out of confusion, delusion and disillusion, proliferation of pornography, abortion, sex, rape and violence almost every where, uttering obscene words, slander and blasphemies in almost every step we make, in media and in the movies, you can name more and it all spells the lack of love in this world and it is just like hell breaking loose.
Very recently, the handling of the debt deal has come to focus in US politics. Practically, a big chunk of the whole world is affected by whatever happens and decided upon in the United States.
Being the number one economy in the world, America has to face this naked truth as it now humbled to having to tackle the biggest debt problem at $14.3 trillion. It is just unbelievable how great minds and talents backed up by high technology in its arsenal, the US has become defenseless in its fight against a monster of its own making.
Pondering for a moment the truth about hell, God seems to be sending us a message, that in this life, we can experience hell by making a hell of our life, especially when we deny Christ as we deny the truth in this words, and as we deny to follow him.
If heaven is the presence of God, is hell then, which is the absence of God, not the opposite, where evil reigns?
And in order to guide us in this gift of life and the gift of 'free will,' Jesus has said inMatthew 6:24 that we cannot serve two masters at the same time. We choose only one … either God or Mammon (money, material things, sins of lust, power). If we opt to be ruled by material things or by money, which the evil one prefers, can we ever attain satisfaction and peace in our life?
Psalm 95:8-11, it states, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah (means quarreling), as you did that day at Massah (means testing) in the desert, where your fathers tested and tried me, though they had seen what I did. For forty years I was angry with that generation. I said, “They are apeople whose hearts go astray, and they have not known my ways.” So I declared an oath in my anger, “They shall never enter my rest.”
Reading through our linked post above on the definition of 'love' by Saint Paul, which for me is the best definition of 'pure and unconditional love' thus far, as it brings forth the truth in God's words in Christ Jesus, His only begotten Son, the message of 'love of others' is foremost in the commandment of God as it tells us its importance in keeping us, others and our God happy in this life.
And through this kind of love, we may be able to straighten our path to glory, and our glory is God's glory in Christ. And where the love of others in Christ conquers all.

Praying through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I have come to this revelation of God's message of love that He wants to impart to all men, together with humility, understanding, mercy and forgiveness, we can all unite in spreading the light in Christ Jesus and his words of truth in the love of others, to give us hope, and to give us peace in this beautiful world we live in as this is God's gift for us.
God wants us to to put an end to writing our own destruction. He wants us to show our love for others, and with Christ and in Christ, He will heal our land as we see the light from darkness, fear and anxiety.
In 2 Chronicles 7:14, let us listen to God's words, “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
If we are in Christ, we have nothing to fear, for in our faith and in our love for others, we are saved.
