In the United States, nine 'Christians' wanted to do something extraordinary for 'God' but 'praise be to God', they were nabbed before they could carry it out. These are the members of the Hutaree, and according to the group's website, consider themselves "Christian warriors." They were preparing for armed conflict with the police in anticipating for the arrival of the Antichrist.
According to FBI, the suspects had been plotting to kill a local law enforcement officer, and then attack with homemade bombs the officers who came to the funeral. They believe in the nearness of the Second Coming of Jesus and before that could happen, they must stop the one world government.
The neighbours did not suspect anything as they trained themselves in the forest near to where they stay.
Whew! I have always believe in one thing, "What you believe today will determine what action you will take tomorrow!" Yes, it is a good thing to believe in the Second Coming of Jesus and I believe He is coming soon too. But we are not (I repeat 'NOT') fighting against flesh and blood but against evil powers in this world (Ephesian 6).
It is not using our own strength to fight them either because our weapons or fire power are not the weapons of the world (2 Cor. 10:4) but DIVINE powers! Therefore, it is through prayer and living out our godly lives that we demolish any power that sets itself up against God!
What you did, Hutaree is contrary to the very words of God!! For God so loved the world (for everyone is precious to Him) that He sent Jesus (John 3:16). The police that you wanted to kill is precious to God whom you serve and would die for! He or she has also a family like yours and have a story to tell!
Christians are representing Christ and that's why everything Christians do or say can reflect Him, either good or bad! The eyes of the world are watching!
Just as we are celebrating Good Friday this week, let us remind ourselves again that Jesus came to earth to do one thing, save the world. Before he comes again to set the kingdom of heaven on earth, he asks us to do one thing, to serve, even to give our lives for others if need be.
Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place." (John 18:36).
