Dear Sirs,

Vengeance is Mine, Saith the Lord

If this is still a Christian nation, (which is debatable with Jesus Christ and prayer kicked out of school and government and all) one might ask what is now the Christian thing to do. The Jehovah God of the Bible chose the nation of Israel to be His People. Two hundred and twenty five years ago our nation chose Jehovah God of the Bible to be their God.

The Bible is clear for those who trust Christ, (Christians) and are not faint of heart. Send Prayer and Psalm 23 to the victims. Send retaliation and Psalm 83 to our enemies; Israel's enemies; Jehovah God's enemies. This prayer of Israel could be a prayer of ours today.

Psal 83:1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah,and as Zalmunna:

12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.

17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

That men may know.

Sincerely Yours

Pastor Edward G. Rice
