Many of us like a good “whodunit,” and current events give a wide field for investigation and imagination. Following the money – and the power – gives some general indications that modern economies, central banking institutions, and corporations are in the hands of rich and influential individuals, and with them the military, media, and government agencies. The Lord has told us that there are conspiracies against his rule and the rule of his blessed Son, Jesus Christ (Ps. 2), so there is no surprise here.

Giving Thanks Unto the Father

We must not allow life’s trouble and sorrow to harden our souls or to make us forget our Father’s mercies. Seek the heart of our Lord Jesus on that last night. He had Satan to fight the next day, to yield himself into the power of death and hell, and to drink the cup of his Father’s wrath against sin – but he knelt down and washed the disciples’ feet, taught them of the Father’s love, and prepared them for the great gift of the Holy Spirit. Overwhelmed with the terror facing him, he kept his eye on the prize set before him.
