Will All People Ever Love One Another?

I read this story about a retired businesswoman who had a widow for a neighbor. One evening the widow knocked on her door and said she was lonely. The businesswoman told her bluntly that she was busy, so the widow apologized for disturbing her, and left. The next day, the businesswoman found out that the widow had taken her own life, that very night and she regretted turning her away. There is a lack of neighbor love throughout the world today, sadly. Did you know that, several years ago, during ethnic conflicts in Bosnia and Herzegovina, over a million people were forced from their homes and tens of thousands were killed. One person who had been driven from her village said that her neighbors were the ones who forced them out of their home. “We knew them.” She said. Also in Rwanda, several years ago, hundreds of thousands of people were slaughtered, often by their own neighbors. “The New York Times” reported that, “Hutu and Tutsi lived together and intermarried, not caring or not even knowing who was a Hutu and who was a Tutsi, and then something snapped and the killings began.” Have you ever seen the movie: "Hotel Rwanda?" This lack of love attitude, is going on in many other countries, even today. Jews and Arabs who live side by side in Israel have no love for each other. Catholics and Protestants in Ireland showed hostility to each other. People are being driven out of Serbia. Never before in history has the world been so lacking in love. Why do you think this is happening in the world today? There is a REASON. Do you know what that reason is? When will it end? Stay tuned.

Although we are suppose to love one another it isn't happening. The Bible talks about war. Religious wars will occur and are occurring. These are the times we live in. No matter how we speak about about "love." Hate will be here, separation will be here, envy will be here. The best thing to do is continue to pray and try to make it through the mess.

Prayer is very important. Hate will not always prevail, however. The time is coming when hate will be removed from this earth. The Bible promises us that. Watch for my next article. The earth will soon be filled with peaceful persons. Psalm 72:7; Isaiah 45:18; Isaiah 9:6, 7; Revelation 21:3-5 These promises involve the earth. The literal earth is permanent. Jesus said: "Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth." Psalms 37:9-11 explains that it's the wicked that will be gone from the earth, but the earth will remain.
