The reports coming out from a variety of sources worldwide regarding persecution of Christians, largely at the hands of Muslims is indeed a Tsunami from hell! Do a web search on Christian persecution and see what you come up with - it will be mind-boggling as well as mind opening.
The following news items are from Voice of the Martyrs.
Afghanistan: Christian Imprisoned
Somalia: Teenage Girl Shot
Barb and I give to Voice of the Martyrs on a regular basis. There are sever similar ministries to VOM and I am thankful for such ministries. I have several of these type ministries posted on our website.
Remember Islam is a peaceful religion, but just a glance at headlines around the world will prove to the contrary. Islam represents hate and Islam hates! But we in America are in love with Islam. We have fallen in love with our captors. We are living out the Stockholm Syndrome personified! They have captured many through various tactics, i.e. the liberal media, liberal education, and out right intimidation. While it saddens and angers me that the American press as a whole will not report these attacks, it saddens and angers me more that the "prosperity preachers" in the American Church are so preoccupied will spreading their beguiling message of selfishness that they do not hear the cries of the ones who are suffering for the sake of Christ. These narcissistic thespians will wave their wallets as they prance across the stage and demand that God fill it while our true brothers and sisters are actually praying "Lord give us our daily bread" . They pray this Godly prayer as they continue to worship in their underground churches, built in abject poverty, and surrounded by hostile enemies. Lying on my desk before me is the January copy of VOM. On the front cover is a picture of a girl who was so badly burned she barely looks human, in fact she portrays the face of a monster more than a young girl. Her name is Yubelina. This beautiful angel of faith was horribly burned while fleeing a Muslim attack on her Christian village in Indonesia. I cannot bring to mind with any real clarity what this young girls must have suffered. Thanks to God using VOM to provide several plastic surgeries, Yubelina will look more and more human. I thank God for thousands like Yubelina who I am not worthy to even write about. In the amount of time you have taken to read this article many Christians have been martyred, tortured, and imprisoned for their faith in Yeshua. I hope you will remember these brothers and sisters in prayer.
In closing I would like to remind you that more
Christians died for their faith in the twentieth century than at
any other time in history, says Christian Solidarity
International. It is estimated that 150,000 Christians were
martyred last year, in various nations outside of the United
States. That will change!!! While persecution will continue
to grow against Christians in other countries it will also happen
I want to warn you with all the urgency I have that persecution
is coming to the United States. In many ways it is already here
and raising its ugly head. "Here now but not yet"
