Recently the US embassies in Egypt and Libya have been attacked, killing one ambassador and three staff members (click here for the story.)
The rage that is coming from Islam is sweeping the globe. It is captured in in this picture of a blogger who has come to be known as "Islamic Rage Boy." Since 2006 he has dispensed what Wikapedia calls an exaggerated form of Islamic justice. Lawlessness is sweeping the globe in many nations spurred on by the demonic spirit behind it.
Our own nation seems to have forgotten what the first role of government is, and that is the protection of its people (Romans 13:1-4). Because of our nation's growing sin we've become blinded to certain truths and principles which have led to our economic decline and the weakening of our power to protect freedom, liberty and human rights.
The excuse for this mob violence was a protest to an Egyptian Christian who created a movie in America criticizing Islam. Many may not be aware but since the Muslim Brotherhood took over in Egypt, the violence against Christians and those who oppose that violent regime has escalated to the point where people are being CRUCIFIED (click here). Bringing the world's attention to a human rights violation is an issue of justice. In America we have a First Amendment which guarantees among other things, free speech.
Our embassy's first response to the mob violence and attack on our sovereign soil of the embassy was an apology. Here is a biblical principle of government:
Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
Now, with all this being said, the truth is our government's response is less than half the issue. Many do not recognize that this is a spiritual war that has gone on for thousands of years before America was even discovered.

So how do we confront the "RAGE" that is sweeping the globe?
Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, 3 "Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us." 4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;The Lord shall hold them in derision. 5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure: 6 "Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion." 7 "I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, 'You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. 8 Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance,And the ends of the earth for Your possession. 9 You shall break them with a rod of iron;You shall dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel.'" 10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fear, And rejoice with trembling. NKJV
How was the King set in Zion? It was demonstrated through David's Tabernacle which God is restoring in these last days (Acts 15:16-17). It is the key to the harvest and salvation of men's souls (Amos 9:11). When the natural courts fail to dispense justice and protect the people, we have the opportunity to appeal to a higher authority: God himself!
It is time for a new breed of Christian to arise. One that knows God's word and prays God's word (ie. Hebrews 4:12, Isaiah 55:11, Daniel 7:21-22, Acts 12:23, Acts 13:11...) Ones that pray the prayers that David prayed and sang in the Psalms. Not just the nice sweet things, but all of the Psalms which address the promises God made regarding His "sure mercies." In mercy God would cut off an offending part to save a nation. In mercy God would defeat an enemy to defend a people.
