To Clelebrate or not to Celebrate

The question has been raised, to celebrate or not to celebrate the killing of Osama bin Laden by our military (Seal team 6). Celebrating victories in times of war goes back thousands of years. Israel celebrated and thanked God, when they got the victory over their enemies, from the destruction of the army at the Red Sea to King David and many other times. So it is good to thank God for delivering an enemy into our hands and to thank our military and government leaders past and present for a job well done. But, we are still at war and we must continue to fight or the enemies of this nation will rebuild and attack again. Remember  their stated goal is to kill every United States Citizen, every man, woman or child and to kill every christian and Jew in the world and for them to absolute control over the earth.This is not only a physical war but a spiritual war as well (in spite of what we are being told).
 The spirit of anti-christ is at work today, trying to stop prophecies of the Bible from coming to past. These prophecies spell out the final defeat of Satan and all who follow him. This is why there is this war. Satan is trying to wipe out every christian and Jew in a last ditch effort to stop his final defeat from happening. Satan tried to wipe out the Jews with Hitler and Hitler had also declared that Christianity was also an an enemy of the Nazis Party and we know what was done to their enemies.
Abortion is another attack, millions have been murdered, trying to stop to a generation that is rising up that will know God and do his will.
   We must also remember what God says in 2 Peter 3:9  The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. So,while we can celebrate a victory, we must remember that God desires everyone to be saved even Osama bin Laden.Osama bin Laden  like everyone else makes a choice to follow Christ or not to follow Christ.
 I am sadden that Osama bin Laden never repented and came to know Christ. For anyone to spend
eternity without God saddens the Lord and should sadden everyone that knows him.  So celebrate, but temper it with the fact another person God loves just entered hell and is separated from God for eternity.
