I can't believe it's been three days since I've blogged. Time goes by so fast.
Well, it's official, I'm weird. I have a favorite pair of jeans that I refuse to let go of even though they are falling apart.
This morning I ironed patches onto them. Yes, I did.
Have you heard about God.tv? From their web site:
Rory and Wendy Alec broke new ground for the Gospel establishing the first daily Christian television network in Europe. 11 years on, GOD TV broadcasts a new breed of original Christian programming around the world, and now to the USA.
Since the fall of Saddam Hussein GOD TV now broadcasts into Iraq with 30-40% of Iraqi homes able to watch GOD TV. Our programs can also be viewed in Iran, Syria, Jordan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Rachel here: War is one way God moves boundaries. I've heard from many reliable sources Christianity is booming in Iraq since Saddam left power.
I was moved by Saddam's death. I felt for him, though a man who lives by the sword dies by the sword. He was violent and cruel. But God will prevail. If any of us get in the way of Him reaching out to the human race He died to save, and loves without measure, we will be removed.
I personally know of a man who was sent by the Lord to Saddam many times to preach the Gospel. In fact, the United States government knows about this man of God. I believe Saddam was being beckoned by the Lord of Host to let His Word go forth. He was given many chances to surrender, just like Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 4.
God is merciful. He is great and good, but His will is premier to our man's.
