THE PERSECUTED CHURCH

Born-again Christians are being persecuted today like never before. Despotic governments, radical religious factions, and the Islamic beast are persecuting and murdering Christians in unprecedented numbers.

Many Christians are being tortured and killed, and in some places modern-day crucifixion’s are taking place. So when you pray, please remember our brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering horribly because of the rampant evil that is in the world.

Its getting worse and will continue to increase as time moves forward. In fact, many of these people think they are doing service to God by murdering Christians, just as Jesus predicted:

These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service (John 16:2).
Radical Islam is like a spreading cancer, in that it consumes all that it touches. Unfortunately, (in the United States in particular) liberal politics and political correctness are interfering with efforts to deal with it in an efficient and effective manner. It is quite clear that these Islamic radicals understand only one thing–brutal force, and that is how they need to be dealt with.
Evidently, President Obama can not even begin to believe that evil on this level exist in the world, and he seems to waffle when speaking about radical Islam. That he appears to be at least somewhat sympathetic with the radical cause (to remove Christianity) is evident, at least in my opinion, because he is lackadaisical and weak when speaking about it, let alone his  willingness to confront and eradicate its brutal influence.
When any religion (deviant forms of Christianity included, e.g. the inquisition of Catholicism) evolves to the point that men, women, and children are being systematically and brutally tortured, mutilated, beheaded, crucified, and dismembered on the level that we are seeing today, it has moved beyond normal human sin into the level of depravity that is influenced by vicious, evil, spiritual forces.
It appears that the spiritual floodgates are beginning to crack open, and it appears, at least in my opinion, that we may be entering into a time when the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit is lifting around the world.
“And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed (the Antichrist), whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders…” (2 Thessalonians 2:6-9).
I will be writing more on this in the near future, but in the meantime please pray for the persecuted church.
Thanks for visiting.
