The threat of terrorism seems to be something that will always haunt us. It is a threat so real in both local and international scale. Terrorist attacks can happen any minute without any warning. Many experts believe that terrorism will not die down in the near foreseeable future. In fact, it is predicted to get worse each passing day.
Human efforts in stopping terrorism
There are a lot of suggestions and discussions being made to prevent terrorism. Some people put the blame on immigration and calling out to ban a particular religion. Some suggest that we need to have a stronger security border, boost police visibility, expand our intelligence gathering, and even respond with more brutal retaliation.
We have seen this during the 9/11 attack. Two commercial airplanes took down the Twin Towers in New York City. The United States responded by declaring an all-out war against the perpetrators. Also, on November 13, 2015, France was attacked by ISIS terrorists. The country immediately retaliated by boosting their air strikes against ISIS in the Middle East.
We have seen that even some of the wealthiest nations of this world are not immune to terrorist attacks. They should have been the best nations who are equipped with the technology, expertise, and experience to combat terrorism. We have seen how they fail over and over again.
Last July 14, 2016, we saw the latest terror attack in Nice, France. The lone killer does not need big guns or lots of fire powers. Rather, we have seen how a lorry truck can be used to perform mass murder. The said attack left at least 80 people dead. (For more about this, please read Terror Attack in Nice, France, and How it is Fulfilling Bible Prophecy.)
Now, in the recent news, we have the Taliban, an islamic group, considered by most as terrorists, who now took over the country of Afghanistan. After 20 years, trillions of dollars, and thousands of people dying, the United States, the most powerful military power in the world, have lost in their battle.

How we fail in stopping terrorism
The government can do everything that they can do to prevent terrorism. However, we have to face it. We cannot stop terrorism but only lessen the threat. This is a sad fact that we all need to face.
It is very easy to kill. It is much simpler to take a life rather than give one. This is why we must not be surprised why a person who is least suspected of becoming a terrorist will suddenly transform into a suicide bomber.
One man can easily buy materials from the nearest hardware store, assemble an improvised explosive device, and take a hold an entire building as a hostage.
Experts agree that everything is POSSIBLE in the world of terrorism. They can quickly turn non-fatal materials into a destructive weapon. There is NO limit to the imagination of a terrorist, and we have seen that in the case of the terror attack in Nice, France. Anything can be a weapon.
Maybe, the greatest terrorist attack that the world hasn’t yet witnessed is the use of nuclear bombs. Imagine if a single atomic weapon and all the apparatus needed to launch it will fall into the hands of the terrorist. This world would never be the same again!
The message is clear: terrorism can NEVER be completely eradicated in this world.
When the government successfully destroy a terrorist group, another one will come out. One that can be more ruthless and violent.
The BEST solution to Terrorism finally revealed!
In the midst of all the discussions about terrorism, it is astounding and even disappointing that mainstream media left out a crucial piece of the puzzle. If only people don’t disregard this critical factor, this world could have a better understanding why there are so much terror and chaos right now.
Mainstream media and even the world should turn to the Bible for answers!
It is the best place to start and see why we are in such a messy world right now! If only people turn to the Bible, they would have a better grasp about terrorism and its implication to Bible prophecy.
Thankfully, the Bible revealed the only solution that completely eradicate terrorism, and this cannot be accomplished through human effort. It will only be done through the DIRECT INTERVENTION of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Bible prophecies tell us that everything will get worse before they get better. Christ even warned us, “For then there will be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, NO FLESH would be saved [alive]; but for the elect’s sake, those days will be shortened” (Matthew 24:21-22).
Thankfully, humanity will not be completely be annihilated from the face of the planet. Before man destroys himself, Christ will directly intervene in human affairs! He will no longer come as a helpless baby in the manger! But rather, HE WILL COME AS A CONQUERING KING!
He will finally establish his perfect and peaceful kingdom — and that my friend is how terrorism can be stopped once and for all! Satan, the author of all terrorist attacks, will be banished and sent to the bottomless pit where he will be imprisoned for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-3).
Christ’s return is the ONLY solution to the rampant and indescribable violence in this world. Though we may be living in a dark and gloomy age, we can have the full confidence that Christ will someday stop terrorism, and we will all experience lasting and genuine peace on earth. MAY GOD SPEED THAT DAY!
