  Persecuted Christians

God's Word  ~  Trusting God  ~  Topical Scripture List  ~  Names of God  ~  Chronologies

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me,  for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29

"Please pray for God's people around the world!  As in Europe,  Christian faith is  fading in America, while persecution is spreading in many other parts of the world. Yet, countless Christians would rather face death than deny their beloved Lord! .


Lawlessness. Cybersecurity Expert: Massive Hack 'Devastating' to U.S. National Security: "... the recent hacking of the Office of Personnel Management was 'devastating' and will hurt the national security of the United States. Hackers linked to China reportedly gained access to sensitive background information submitted by intelligence and military employees for security clearances. Millions of security clearance holders, including CIA, NSA... are potentially exposed in the breach." See The fall and rise of human violence


Gratefulness!  'Thank You for Risking Your Life': Woman Leaves Kind Note on Police Cruiser: "A woman wrote a touching thank you note and left it on a Denver Police cruiser. ...the letter read: 'Dear Officer, I'm from San Jose, CA, and we lost an asset to an amazing team last week. Thank you for risking your life every day for my safety. You are important and I am super thankful for you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. God Bless, Lauren."


Whose Rights?  Obama: 'If Catholics Have Their Schools... and Protestants Have Theirs ... that Encourages Division': "Likening religious schools to segregation--a racist system that forced blacks to attend different schools and use different facilities than whites in the American South--President Barack Obama told a town hall meeting for youth in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Monday that there should not be Catholic and Protestant schools because such schools cause division." See Trusting God as Freedom Fades


Transforming America.  American Flag is Next in Left's Crosshairs: "If you take a look at the timeline of progressive events, their speed and rapidity with which the left is conducting this assault on all of these American traditions and institutions, if you don't think the American flag's in their crosshairs down the road, you had better stop and reconsider..."

Control. Secret Document Reveals US to Give Iran Nuclear Equipment: "...the US and world powers will give the Islamic regime state-of-the-art nuclear equipment in return for Iran stepping down its nuclear weapons program."

Signs of the Times. 'No One is Surprised Anymore that Israel is Singled Out': “'Most of the countries in the United Nations - they don’t know what the words ‘civil rights’ mean, they don’t know what ‘human rights’ means, because they don’t practice it.... 'Israel is treated differently than any other country in the world.... What would any country do if their cities were being bombarded with missiles every single day...?'  'Israel... 'does everything in the world' to ensure that civilians aren’t hurt, but 'Israel is singled out.” See Spiritual Warfare


Persecution. Christian Carnage and Western Indifference: Muslim Persecution of Christians: "One group of Christians were shot execution style to the back of their heads, the others had their heads carved off.... The IS spokesman further addressed 'Christians everywhere': We say to Christians everywhere, the Islamic State will expand, with Allah’s permission. And it will reach you even if you are in fortified strongholds. So whoever enters Islam will have security.... But whoever refuses will see nothing from us but the edge of a spear.” See Preparing for Persecution


Persecution. ISIS in Syria Hangs Two Boys for Eating During Ramadan: "'Residents of the village of Mayadeen in Deir Ezzor province reported that IS hanged from a crossbar two boys aged under 18 near the HQ of the Hissba', the jihadist police, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told the AFP news agency. The children have been suspended by ropes from a pole since noon, and they were still there in the late evening,' he added. 'Apparently, they were caught eating."


Signs of the times. Netanyahu Warns Jewish World: The Threat is Growing; Code Words for Genocide: "The prime minister said the number one threat against the Jewish people is a nuclear armed Iran, warning that the Iran deal being discussed becomes 'worse by the day'.... He also spoke about the terrorist proxies of Iran acting throughout the Middle East, as well as the Islamic regime's brazenness regarding their goals to destroy Israel."  See Jews in Holy Land? What Jews? 


Persecution. Jihad on Churches: Muslim Persecution of Christians, March 2015: "The children were isolated and put in cages. Adults who do not deny their faith will be decapitated, and their children burned alive in the cages." — Sister Monique of the Vincentian Daughters of Charity, Syria.


Persecution. Terror attacks, deaths up sharply in 2014 - U.S. State Department: "Terrorist attacks worldwide surged by more than a third and fatalities soared by 81 percent in 2014, a year that also saw Islamic State eclipse al Qaeda as the leading jihadist militant group..."

      "... the department also charts an unprecedented flow of foreign fighters to Syria, often lured by Islamic State's use of social media and drawn from diverse social backgrounds. Taken together, the trends point to a sobering challenge from militant groups worldwide to the United States and its allies." See Persecution Scriptures

Muslim Mosques.  Muslim Leader Plans to Turn Thousands of Churches Into Mosques; Claims Christians and Muslims Worship 'the Same God': "A prominent Muslim leader in France has suggested that thousands of the country's abandoned Catholic churches should be turned into mosques to accommodate the growing French Muslim population, which is the largest Muslim population in Europe." See Muslim Brotherhood & the Plots to Rule an Islamic World

Whose Rights?  Micro-Totalitarianism: "Professors at the University of California at Berkeley have been officially warned against saying such things as 'America is the land of opportunity.' Why? Because this is considered to be an act of 'micro-aggression' against minorities and women. Supposedly it shows that you don’t take their grievances seriously and are therefore guilty of being aggressive toward them."

Taking Control.  Obama's secret TPP scheme will criminalize saving seeds, push biotech patent monopolies: "The hidden details of a treasonous new 'trade' agreement currently being negotiated between the U.S. and 11 other countries in secret continue to be leaked, with new evidence pointing to the further erosion of national food sovereignty under the sinister plan. The so-called 'Trans-Pacific Partnership,' or TPP, threatens to eliminate the freedom of farmers to save seeds while forcing signatory nations to allow multinational biotechnology companies to patent whole plants as intellectual property."

Signs of the Times.  US rebuffs Israel’s last-ditch bid for nuclear constraints in Iran accord: "Very few of the conditions for a deal stipulated by the US upon embarking on the negotiations had survived: Iran would continue to enrich uranium, be allowed to bar international inspections of military facilities suspected of hosting nuclear research activity (where were Obama's 'intrusive inspections') and ... the Iranian UCF facility at Isfahan would be expanded..."  See The Emerging New World Order


Inviting Lawlessness.  Illegal Immigration Nightmare: Obama Has Been Releasing 1000s Of Convicted Criminals Back Into Our Communities: "Why...? ...more than 36,000 were released from custody in Fiscal Year 2013 alone. These individuals were actually convicted of committing crimes, and many of them went on to commit new crimes once they were released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ...

     "...more than 100 American citizens are now dead because of Obama’s foolish policies. Why is Obama doing this? He knows that one out of every five illegal immigrants has a criminal record, and he knows that many of these convicted criminals that he is releasing will go on to commit new crimes...."?" See The fall and rise of human violence


Internment Camps? The UN Is Preparing to Manage Mass Casualty Events Under Jade Helm: "The following information is strongly suggestive that the United Nations is poised to seize control of Jade Helm. Further, the nature of UN involvement with Jade Helm is strongly suggestive of the fact that massive numbers of people will be relocated to camps following a chemical/biological attack. Further, this administration has established the protocols for just such a forced relocation of massive amounts of people." See The National Defense Authorization Act is the Greatest Threat to Civil Liberties Americans Face (I can't verify this article, and access to the site may be a bit confusing)

Massive Depopulation.  Vatican speaker and California Governor in push for massive depopulation: "The depopulationists are on the move again, pushing hard for the elimination of six billion people on planet Earth in order to bring the planet down to what's being touted as its 'sustainable carrying capacity of one billion people." See Agenda 21 - The U.N. Plan for Your Community


"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ... Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us..." Romans 8:35, 37

"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

When enemy forces threatened to attack God's people, [King] Jehoshaphat simply turned His eyes and heart to His faithful Lord and expressed his faith:

“O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You?
     ...we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, BUT OUR EYES ARE UPON YOU." 2 Chronicles 20:6, 12
