Sensing the Supernatural

Forgive me if this sounds a bit callous.

I’d bet that a few New England Patriots fans felt what I did last night during the pregame show.

Doom.

Starting wide receiver Torrey Smith, for our opponent the Baltimore Ravens, was in tears on the sideline, mourning the death of his 19-year-old brother, less than 24 hours earlier, from a motorcycle crash.

Hearts all across America went out to this young man, especially for the courage he had to play through his grief.

I had no doubt that Torrey would have a monster game.

In fact it was so good, he helped his teammates to victory with two touchdowns, aided by a last second field goal, despite being down 9 points in the fourth quarter.

Football is just a game, so my team’s loss is hardly newsworthy as it pertains to life.

World politics are not a game.

As important as the economy is right now as an election topic, (that Republicans must talk about and Democrats ignore by attacking Mitt Romney’s success and words) our world is ready to explode.

The President’s unwillingness to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu, as if he’s some kind of overly persistent life insurance salesman, is giving me a very similar sense of doom, like I had last night before the Patriots v. Ravens game.

But instead of believing something good was about to happen to the likes of  a Torrey Smith, a victim of tragedy, I sense something bad ready to occur.

Christians and Jews must pray harder than we’ve ever prayed for the peace of Jerusalem.

Our current leadership in Washington is less skilled than NFL replacement referees and our enemy, Iran, has the mind and blood lust of a 9/11 terrorist.

God help us overcome this enemy and insure that our lives are preserved for a few more generations.

If we can’t, then the next best thing we can say is “Come Lord Jesus.”
