“If it looks like a duck,
quacks like a duck,
it’s a duck!”
“Your words have the power of life and death.
Choose them wisely.”

A most edifying annoucnement came today from the State Department.
That’s what ISIS is indeed doing…
to Shia Muslims
“We must recognize what Daesh [the Arabic name for ISIS] is doing to its victims,”
Kerry said, speaking from the State Department podium.
“We must hold the perpetrators accountable.”
The treaty commits signatory nations to take steps to “prevent and to punish”
the “odious scourge” of genocide.
Will the “recognition” change things?
Sadly, probably not…
But what it will change is the lens to which the world’s powerful leaders will use to view the vile acts committed by this terrorist organization….
and with the changing of the lens, we pray for the changing of hearts….
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.
