SECURITY IS OF GOD

Security is very vital to human existence that was why after God has created Adam and Eve He put them in a garden for them to be secured. To further buttress this, Cain after the murder of Abel his brother told God, “Today you are driving me from the land and i will be hidden from your presence, i will be restless wanderer on the earth and whoever fined me will kill me”. Genesis 4:14. And from that time to this day man is always making effort to secure himself from intruder to his place of resident or other environments. The bible says, “Unless the lord watches over the city the guards’ stands watch in vain”, Psalm 127:2.that is to say no matter the effort we make to secure our lives; we cannot really secure ourselves hundred percent without leaving some loopholes. It is only in the presence of God-Garden of Eden- that we can have full security.

They say, when the hunter learns how to aim at birds, the birds learn to fly without perching. Today with the advent of technology, so many sophisticated security gadgets have been invented. Even at that, can anyone say he is fully secured in this world? Remember these guns and weapons are operated by imperfect and careless beings, who at times at the slightest provocation uses the weapons against those they are suppose to protect. Have you not heard of accidental discharge, where innocent souls are killed? Human errors cannot be completely ruled out when it comes to human handling of these weapons. It can be intended or unintended; it is intended when defenseless civilians and colleagues of these security men are killed in arguments over trivial things. Think of the suicide bombing that is rampant in the world today as a result of the wickedness of man. It is unintended when the man is drunk or asleep- unconscious of himself and the environment he is expected to secure-, and the opponent takes advantage of that to disarm him and cause havoc. When those that are suppose to secure lives and properties go drinking, getting drunk and go sleeping then God takes over the security of his people. This is very true in the case of president Obama as seen in the bbc news report below.

The US Secret Service is investigating two senior agents after a car crash at the White House. A spokesman for the Secret Service told the BBC the collision happened during the evening on 4 March. The Washington Post reported the agents drove the car into a security barricade after a night of drinking and partying. The crash is the latest in a series of embarrassing incidents involving the agency charged with protecting President Barack Obama. The Washington Post has identified the agents as Mark Connolly, deputy in charge of the president's security detail, and George Ogilvie, a senior supervisor in the agency's Washington office. They had been attending a party at a nearby bar before the incident occurred, the Post reported. A spokesman for the Secret Service said Director Joe Clancy had directed the department's internal investigator to look into the incident. The Secret Service has reassigned the two agents to non supervisory, non-operational jobs during the investigation.

Trouble at the Secret Service

11 November 2011: A man fires several bullets at the White House and hits a second floor window. Four days pass before agents determine the building had been shot at. One of the president's daughters was home at the time.

13 April 2012: Agents providing security for President Obama in Colombia are recalled after being implicated in a prostitution scandal during a summit.

23 March 2014: Three agents protecting the president in Amsterdam are put on administrative leave after a night of drinking. One agent is reportedly found passed out in a hotel hallway.

16 September 2014: An armed man with an arrest record is allowed on an elevator with the president, violating Secret Service rules.

19 September 2014: A man with a knife climbs over the White House fence and is able to enter the building before being stopped by agents. The president had left the White House minutes earlier.

1 October 2014: Julia Pierson resigns as Secret Service director after a series of security lapses.

4 March 2015: Two agents crash a car into a White House security barrier.

Witnesses reportedly saw the officers in a car with illuminated emergency lights and said they had shown their badges in an attempt to get through a secured section of the White House complex. The vehicle ran through security tape and hit temporary barricades that had been set up while security services investigated a suspicious package. On Thursday, an unnamed White House official told Reuters Mr Obama was "aware of the allegations and supports director Clancy's decision to turn the investigation over to the DHS Inspector General for a thorough review". Over the past several months, several of the agency's top officials have been forced to step down following multiple security lapses. A man from Texas was able to scale a fence and run into the White House while brandishing a knife before being detained. The Secret Service is charged with protecting the president, vice-president, their families and other officials. "The fact that this event involved senior-level agents is not only embarrassing but exhibits a clear lack of judgment in a potentially dangerous situation," the leaders of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee - Republican chairman Jason Chaffetz of Utah and top Democrat Elijah Cummings of Maryland - said on Wednesday. Ohio Republican Senator Rob Portman said he looked forward to hearing how Mr. Clancy will respond to the incident. "He has talked about 'zero tolerance' and I expect him to react accordingly," Mr. Portman told reporters Having read through this report you will agree with me that security is of God. GOTO

THE APPOINTED TIME OF THE LORD

There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens.(Ecclesiastes 3:1) That is to say there is time there are times,there is season there are seasons. But there is an appointed time which God alone determines. Because this appointed time is under the control of God Almighty, extraordinary, marvelous,wonderful, miracles breakthroughs happens at such a time. But who can wait for such a time. Do you have issue(s) that has to do with time? Are you of the age of getting married and no man is showing up or no money to put things in place and you are counting months ,years that has gone by. Have you ever thought of the appointed time. In Genesis Chapter 3 after God has created man(Adam) and put him in the garden of Eden to tend it with his companion Eve. They disobeyed God and were driven out of the garden. Man fell from grace to grass from son to slave,from righteousness to unrighteousness. But because of the unfailing love of God for mankind he look for a means to reconcile with fallen man.' But when the set time had fully come, He sent his son born of woman,born under the law,to redeem those under the law that we might receive adoption to sonship' (Gal.4:4-5). At other times it may or may not happen, but at the appointed time what is foretold must come to pass. In Genesis Chapter.18 God visited Abraham and his wife in the form of three men. Where is your wife?, they ask him. "There in the tent" he said. Then one of them said ,' i will surely return to you about this time next year, and sarah your wife will have a son'. (Gen:18:9-10) Though they doubted but because the one that has control over time has spoken, at the appointed time it came to pass. In the gospel according to Saint Luke there was a woman in a town known as Nain who had an only son and eventually the son died. The community felt it just as the woman but they could do nothing rather than to simpathise with her. No wonder they were following her to bury the dead son. But when they got to the gate of the town, Jesus and his disciples met them. when the lord saw her his heart went out to her and he said "Don't cry"(Luke7:13) That is to say Jesus had empathy towards her not just being sympathetic. He felt her pain and did something to alleviate her pain because that is the appointed time. Gal:7:14-15, Then he went up and touched the brier they were carrying him on and the bearer stood still. He said"Young man, i say to you get up". The dead man sat up and began to talk and Jesus gave him back to her.The brierer stoped when the brier was touch by Jesus because that touch was an extraordinary one,it was a touch that makes a diffrence and also the appointed time has come. He spoke to the dead man 'get up' it was so . "For my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways", declared the lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways and your thoughts than my thoughts". (Isaiah55:8-9) Our timing is contrary to God's timing. God is never late .He is always on time if only you and i will wait for the appointed time and listen to his voice and follow his instruction greater things will happen to us. 44452664
