“How shall freedom be defended? By arms when it is attacked by arms, by truth when it is attacked by lies, by faith when it is attacked by authoritarian dogma. Always, in the final act, by determination and faith.” ― Archibald MacLeish

Trusting GOD When We Don't Understand What's Happening in The Philippines Now!


Trusting GOD When We Don't Understand 
What's Happening in The Philippines Now
DISTURBING:A boy arrives at the spot where his father was killed in drug BuyBust operation.
Another EJK. 
May Jesus comfort him this Christmas.
…2How long, O LORD, will I call for help, And You will not hear? I cry out to You, "Violence!" Yet You do not save. 
3Why do You make me see iniquity, And cause me to look on wickedness? Yes, destruction and violence are before me; Strife exists and contention arises. 4Therefore the law is ignored And justice is never upheld. For the wicked surround the righteous; Therefore justice comes out perverted.…
Habakkuk 1-4
Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men;
Preserve me from violent men,
2 Who plan evil things in their hearts;
They continually gather together for war.
3 They sharpen their tongues like a serpent;
The poison of asps is under their lips. 
Psalm 140 NKJV
I said to the Lord: “You are my God;
Hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord.
7 O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
You have covered my head in the day of battle.
8 Do not grant, O Lord, the desires of the wicked;
Do not further his wicked scheme,
Lest they be exalted.
Psalm 140
“As for the head of those who surround me,
Let the evil of their lips cover them;
10 Let burning coals fall upon them;
Let them be cast into the fire,
Into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
11 Let not a slanderer be established in the earth;
Let evil hunt the violent man to overthrow him.”
12 I know that the Lord will maintain
The cause of the afflicted,
And justice for the poor.
13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name;
The upright shall dwell in Your presence.
Psalm 140
He will repay them for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness; the LORD our God will destroy them.
Psalm 94:23
He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.
Isaiah 53:7
Do not show partiality in judging; hear both small and great alike. Do not be afraid of anyone, for judgment belongs to God. Bring me any case too hard for you, and I will hear it."
Deuteronomy 1:17
“So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” 
John 8:7
Prayer for National Deliverance and Security
A Psalm of David.

144 Blessed be the Lord, my rock,
who trains my hands for war,
    and my fingers for battle;
2 my rock[a] and my fortress,
    my stronghold and my deliverer,
my shield and he in whom I take refuge,
    who subdues the peoples under him.[b]
3 O Lord, what is man that thou dost regard him,
    or the son of man that thou dost think of him?
4 Man is like a breath,
    his days are like a passing shadow.
5 Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down!
    Touch the mountains that they smoke!
6 Flash forth the lightning and scatter them,
    send out thy arrows and rout them!
7 Stretch forth thy hand from on high,
    rescue me and deliver me from the many waters,
    from the hand of aliens,
8 whose mouths speak lies,
    and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
9 I will sing a new song to thee, O God;
    upon a ten-stringed harp I will play to thee,
10 who givest victory to kings,
    who rescuest David thy[c] servant.
11 Rescue me from the cruel sword,
    and deliver me from the hand of aliens,
whose mouths speak lies,
    and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
12 May our sons in their youth
    be like plants full grown,
our daughters like corner pillars
    cut for the structure of a palace;
13 may our garners be full,
    providing all manner of store;
may our sheep bring forth thousands
    and ten thousands in our fields;
14 may our cattle be heavy with young,
    suffering no mischance or failure in bearing;
may there be no cry of distress in our streets!
15 Happy the people to whom such blessings fall!
Happy the people whose God is the Lord!
