11/08 Matthew 2:16-18
Herod was furious when he realized that the wise men had outwitted him. He sent soldiers to kill all the boys in and around Bethlehem who were two years old and under, based on the wise men’s report of the star’s first appearance. 17 Herod’s brutal action fulfilled what God had spoken through the prophet Jeremiah: 18 “A cry was heard in Ramah— weeping and great mourning. Rachel weeps for her children, refusing to be comforted, for they are dead.”
Evil comes from many places but it is a product of the chaos and submission to the Evil One in this world. In this world we will have strife and heartache but one day we will stand in Paradise with Jesus and everything changes. No more crying, sin, heartache or evil where God lives and we will have life like His.
