An Easter message to all those who want to create Utopia on earth

Easter's coming up and I feel a gun rant coming on. For all those who say we should ban all guns, and also ban all knives, baseball bats, anything that can be used as a club and anything else in the universe that could possibly be used as a weapon, up to and including ballpoint pens, I say OK, that's fine with me.

Let's go back to writing with quill pens. With dull points so you can't stab anybody with 'em.

I really look forward to the day when there will be eternal peace throughout the universe and no need whatsoever for any weapons of any type.

The ancient Old Testament prophet Micah gives us a vision of that day he predicted is coming.

Micah 4:3 (New King James Version)

3 He shall judge between many peoples,
And rebuke strong nations afar off;
They shall beat their swords into plowshares,
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
Neither shall they learn war anymore.
Sounds like heaven, don't it? Well, that's just what it is, heaven on earth. And it will happen.

But it will not happen until the "He" referred to by Micah is sitting on His throne here on earth.

That He is the Lord Jesus Christ, the one who died for all mankind on Easter more than 2000 years ago, but was resurrected from the dead and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God the Father, waiting for His Father to turn to Him and say, "Time for your 2nd coming."

Then and only then we will no longer have any need for weapons. Until then, if we try to bring about that utopia by banning guns, wherever those banned guns are stored away, some thugs will take a sledge hammer and bust in and help themselves, just as a bunch of punks did last week at the gun store where I work.

They were either too lazy to get a job and buy their guns or already with criminal records so they couldn't buy one, so they did what punks have been doing since Hector was a pup. They stole them. And you can pass all the blinkin' laws you want, the crooks don't care one whit.

That's why they're crooks, because they break the law. So take all your anti-gun laws and all your high and airy talk about creating utopia here on earth and stuff it where the sun don't shine.

Because we're not gonna have a utopia until King Jesus establishes his Kingdom here and rules and reigns for all eternity. Until then, I'm gonna keep my guns loaded and close to hand.
