With Southern California’s proximity to the porous U.S.—Mexico Border, the federal Department of Homeland Security is stressing the need for an extra level of vigilance. The San Diego Joint Terrorism Task Force has developed eight warning signs of potential terrorism risk and posted these “Eight Signs of Terrorisms.”
The Bible describes the world’s major terrorist, who “walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8) We are told to discipline ourselves and be alert to this demonic terrorist’s tactics and temptations (v. 9). We are to respond to satanic opposition with faith and firm resistance.
As we do this, the Bible says we can “step away from worry” by casting all our care upon God, for He cares for us!
