A burglar attempted unsuccessfully to break into Knowles Apothecary in Kensington, MD, on Wednesday night. A surveillance video caught the vandal placing tape on the glass door, then trying to kick it in. He broke some glass, but the door wouldn’t cave. Once the burglar alarm sounded, the potential thief fled and he remains at large.

This was actually the second time within the last week that Knowles was burglarized. A thief, or thieves, broke into the pharmacy on Monday and made off with narcotics, including Oxycontin.

The owner, Hossein Ejtemai, said another store he co-owns, Brookeville Pharmacy in Chevy Chase, was also burglarized and Oxycontin was stolen from that store as well.

The Rollins Pharmacy in Rockville was burglarized also on Monday. The co-owner of that store, Alan Chiet, speculated that the thief, or thieves, want the narcotics because of their street value.

The latest estimate (put out by McClatchy DC) is that as many as 52 million Americans will lose their health insurance by December 31, 2013, or shortly thereafter.

Already a vast number of people all over the nation have complained that they can't afford the increased premiums through the Obamacare exchange.

There will undoubtedly be many people who are highly addicted to their painkillers, in desperate need for their medications by the start of the new year.

People need to consider the level of desperation some will face, not being able to get their medications.

It is very possible that people are going to panic, unless they know how to pray and get help from God.

There may be a flurry of robberies for narcotics all over the United States, because withdrawals from these medications can literally be life threatening. The reasons for these particular robberies may have been someone’s attempt to prepare and store medications for the lack of health insurance effective January 1, 2014.

Chronically ill and terminal patients can’t even tolerate withdrawals from the high doses of narcotics they are accustomed to. Without help, they will literally die.

I was taken aback when I saw Obama's televised response to the millions who are losing insurance. He said,

"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," he told NBC News Thursday evening. "We've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything that we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this."

"Deal with folks?" What kind of help is that? "A tough position?" How about, "I'm sorry that God only knows how many people are going to die because of what I have done to this nation, and here is what I intend to do about it..."

No, I'm afraid we didn't hear that. What he did say absolutely means - nothing, zero, zilch, nein!

Representative Todd Young (R-IND) will present a bill next week to the House, the "Keep Your Health Care Act," to prevent the cancellations of millions of policies. However, It was reported on NBC News Saturday that the administration has made it clear that Obama is not for any new legislation, but they will "work within the current system." In other words, Obama isn't interested in signing new law that would ensure people will not lose their health insurance.

If Americans riot, the Bilderbergers would like nothing more than to see Barack Obama declare martial law in the United States. A situation like that would only advance their plans to place “vise-grip” control over the US population. In fact, with Obamacare legislation, they are most likely anticipating it, counting on it.

It is such a time as this that people need to turn to God with all of their hearts, all of their souls and with all of their might. There is really no other way to survive during such turmoil as the people of our nation face today. The Word of God says,

"Let us, therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need" Hebrews 4:16.

The call of God is going out to the nations now,

“If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” 2 Chronicles 7:14.

The prophet Joel wrote that darkness would come in the last days, but the Lord also said this,

"Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn even to Me with all of your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning, and rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and He repents of the evil" Joel 2:12-13.

God isn’t willing for anyone to perish, but He wants all to come to repentance and receive everlasting life, through His Son, Jesus. The promise of God is this,

"Therefore, if any man be in Christ (receive Him, live for Him), he is a new creature, old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new" 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Many people who have put their trust in God have received healing and instant deliverance from drug addiction. God can save any soul; He can heal any situation, if we pray, rely on Him and help one another.

Rage and violence will only make a very bad situation much worse, which is exactly what satan, the destroyer of souls, wants to do.
