I just read a little more sickening national history. Beastly. I am so disturbed. So I think about this:
"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.
And the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up
together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
Therefore comfort one another with these words."
~ 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17
Thus we shall always be with the Lord. Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus. Catch us up. Meet us. Be with us. The reign of beasts has gone on long enough.
