My heart and prayers go out to the families and friends left behind. To have to deal with such a loss must be unbearable. Students going to school one day to advance their futures and teachers there to teach all they know to help students with their future ahead, are shot dead or injured for what?? Because a man that may have been so desperate that he looses it and decides to kill himself and take other dear lives with him or a man mad at the world or just someone and takes his life and these poor unexpected people. What is the reason for all this?? Evil comes within the heart of man.
Mark 7:21-23 21 "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 "thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. 23 "All these evil things come from within and defile a man."
A man whose heart is evil has taken these poor souls and lead them into eternity, which path only God knows and they know, now. A lot of young folks don't really think about their future when they leave this world. They think they have a life time ahead of them and they should. But who knows what tomorrow will bring?
This is a good reason why the bible teaches today is the day for Salvation.
For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of of salvation. (II Corinthians 6:2)
My heart grieves for those 33 or more people and all their families and friends left behind and the shooter and his family and friends. Let us hold up those folks left behind up in prayer.
There is an essential difference between the decease of the godly and the death of the ungodly. Death comes to the ungodly man as a penal infliction, but to the righteous as a summons to his Father's palace. To the sinner it is an execution, to the saint an undressing from his sins and infirmities. Death to the wicked is the King of terrors. Death to the saint is the end of terrors, the commencement of glory.
