I don't like the feeling in my gut...

I don't like the feeling in my gut... by Paula Neal Mooney

Last night I went to bed thinking about Rev. Pat Robertson's predictions of an upcoming attack on the US. Rev. Robertson said that God told him the attack will result in "mass killings" and direly affect millions of folks.

This morning I woke up with Rev. Pat Robertson's words on my mind and in my soul. This is not good...I thought.

You see, I lean heavily on the Lord and Holy Spirit to tell me what to write each day. I don't like that Rev. Pat Robertson's words are still with me this morning. I don't like that I can't dismiss and mock Robertson's words as easily as some (not all) of the folks below have, a small portion of the bloggers who've pounced (except dennyrburk) and called Rev. Pat Robertson everything from a liar to a loon.

For once in my life I'm hoping all the atheists, agnostics and "science is God" folks who so suredly declare that Rev. Pat Robertson isn't hearing from God are correct in that regard alone. But I keep asking myself: What if Robertson's right this time? What if Robertson's right?

Maybe it's the fact that Keith Ellison will swear in on a Koran tomorrow that's got me feeling this way. Maybe it's the way most Christians go silent whenever Rev. Pat Robertson speaks, or side with the unbelievers like the folks in the prophet Jeremiah's day no doubt did. Most likely it's the sin in my own soul that I know God will someday answer...

Right or wrong, disdain for Rev. Pat Robertson always amazes me:

So there you have a sampling of the bile being spewed against Rev. Pat Robertson, whom I hope inspires the saints to take up a national fasting and prayer campaign. Because all that's ringing in my soul are the might Words from a God Who has proved His might to people who've scoffed Him in the past:

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

wow, you have really gotten my attention with this post, thank you. I usually pay more attention to what I call my church everyday, but today my cable was not working so well. I will pray hard for this not to happen, for God to remember his people and have mercy. That I might have to go through 9/11 one more time, this time with two sons in the service of this country scares me. Thank you for posting this. And like you, I have a tummy that leads me a bit, always has. And now mine is doing back flips :-(
