"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found" (Psalm 32:6)
Bush Concerned About "Suitcase Nukes"
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty... "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust."... You shall not be afraid of the terror...the arrow...the pestilence...the destruction that lays waste. A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you... Because you have made the LORD...your dwelling place... He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him...and show him My salvation" (Ps 91).
The FBI on Monday issued a new terrorism warning - the second this month - a asking Americans to be on their highest alert for possible attacks this week.
--President Bush is reportedly concerned that al Qaida, the terrorist group led by Osama bin Laden, may try to use a small nuclear device in a "super-spectacular" strike to decapitate the U.S. political leadership. (UPI Correspondent Richard Sale, see http://www.unitedstates.com/news/fcontent/771366/nuke).
--Attorney General John Ashcroft said the FBI warning was based upon "credible" intelligence from a variety of different sources and "should be taken seriously."
--The U.S. intelligence community believes tactical nuclear weapons may have been sold to the terrorists by corrupt Russian military officers and/or members of the Russian or Chechen mafias with whom bin Laden is known to be in contact. The Soviet Union developed "suitcase bombs" during the 1960s.
--Homeland Security Directory Tom Ridge frustrated some of America's governors during a conference call in which he exhorted them to put their state apparatus on the highest possible alert. Many states have been on their highest alert and their governors are hard pressed to know how to ratchet it higher.
America has entered a perilous period during which terrorist attacks of any magnitude could lead to paralyzing fear, widespread panic, disruptions in government, a stock market crash and/or a meltdown of our already contracting economy. Our nation is under the judgment of God. The measure of devastation we must face will depend upon the measure with which God's people "humble themselves and pray, and turn from their wicked ways." Even yet, a repentant praying people with clean hands and pure hearts will find safety in and lenience from the God of the Bible. It is time for God's people to pray!
