Most of the news items below illustrate the challenges Christians will face in a world that's growing increasingly hostile to Biblical values. We hope the information will encourage you to stand firm in God's Truth -- no matter how great the pressure to compromise.

  Persecuted Christians

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

"...let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

looking unto Jesus... who for the joy set before Him endured the cross." 

Hebrews 12:1-2

"Pray for God's people around the world! The sobering links below show the rapid transformation of our nation and its values. As in Europe,  Christian faith is  fading fast and God's Word is banned from most of our public schools. Jews and Christians are persecuted in many parts of the world. But in the midst of these changes, our God still reigns! "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord!" As the spiritual war intensifies, may He draw us ever closer to Himself!

 

Remembering WWII Genocide.  World to mark 70th anniversary of Auschwitz liberation next week: "World to mark 70th anniversary of Auschwitz liberation next week. 'I am proud to represent Israel on the 10th anniversary of the U.N. resolution making the International Holocaust Remembrance Day a significant event across Europe..." See Nazi Death Camp

Spiritual Warfare.  What You Saw Here Today Was Naked, Blind Antisemitism:’ NYC Councilman Slams Palestine Activists Who Disrupted Auschwitz Commemoration Debate: "Moments after the demonstrators were escorted from the chamber by security guards, Greenfield, the grandchild of Holocaust survivors, began a speech that rapidly evolved into an impassioned discourse on the overlap between hatred of Israel and hatred of Jews.    

      "While we were discussing a resolution regarding the murder of 1.1 million human beings – I will point out that 90 percent of them were Jewish, but the other 10 percent, they were political dissidents, they were Jehovah’s Witnesses, they were gays, those were the people who were being killed together at Auschwitz-Birkenau,' Greenfield declared, 'while we were discussing that, they had the chutzpah, the nerve, the temerity, to unfurl a Palestinian flag and yell at us.” See Hating Truth and Primed for Deception!

Faith. Faith of Christians in Niger Grows Stronger in Face of Unprecedented Violence: "Christians in Niger [Nigeria] are joyfully meeting in homes under police protection as they plan to rebuild church buildings and houses after attacks last weekend (Jan. 16-18) that were unprecedented in scale. Churches could see further attacks as the task of rebuilding begins.

     “'Nothing of this magnitude has ever happened in this nation,' wrote one missionary couple in the capital, Niamey. 'Nearly every church in the capital city of Niamey was burned or looted, along with some schools and orphanages and several other churches and Christian homes throughout the nation.'...

     “Last night the church members met for prayer as the pastor, who lost everything, encouraged them by flashlight to not only stand strong, but to move forward and to know that this attack will grow the church,' wrote the missionary couple.... 'The room was dark on the outside but illuminated by the fire in the hearts of His people, even as stones were being thrown on the roof.”

     "In spite of the violence, so many present at the church meeting were eager to share testimonies of God’s faithfulness during the attacks that they were asked to wait until Sunday, they added." See Praise to God in the midst of trials!

 

Faith. Boot in the Face? "Richard Page, a 68-year-old British Justice of the Peace and evangelical Christian, has been condemned by the country’s highest legal authorities, suspended, and subjected to a day-long re-education session to rid him of the dangerous belief that a child would be better off being adopted by a family with a mother and a father than by a same-sex couple....

     "But he doesn’t believe he is guilty of misconduct, or of putting his religious beliefs ahead of the evidence. 'What I did was put the interest of the child first. I thought he’d be better off with a mother and father....'

     "As for Page’s retraining session, 'it was quite interesting,' he said. 'Rather like what you used to hear about Communist countries, all about equity and diversity.”

 

Corrupting the Bible. Presbyterian Church and Arab Palestinian Group rewriting the Bible to remove references to Israel: "Have you heard that there is a new version of our Bible? ...This new version blatantly changes God’s Word. Any mention of Israel – gone. Any mention of Jesus being a Jew – gone.

    "The movement which has brought the world a NEW bible, is called Palestinian Liberation Theology. At its heart is hatred for the Jewish people and for Israel. Of course, keeping in line with this hatred, the leaders of this satanic movement have changed Jesus (Yeshua) from being Jewish to being a Palestinian Arab....

    "But remember, the leaders and teachers of the PLT are reading from a new source – their own bible, hence they have made for themselves a new Jesus.... The other mainline churches who have jumped on this heretical bandwagon are: Episcopalian, Methodist, Lutheran....  [N]o wonder, the Presbyterian Church in recent years has become rabidly anti-Israel and ferociously pro-LGBT."

 

War.  Iran's New Terror Base against Israel: "The new base in Syria gives Hezbollah the option of attacking Israel and drawing Israel's return fire away from Lebanon, where its most precious assets are hidden: well over 100,000 rockets and missiles that might be saved for a future battle over Iran's nuclear weapons program." See A Taste of Blood: Human nature without a moral conscience!

 

Migration. European 'No-Go' Zones for Non-Muslims Proliferating: "Many of the 'no-go' zones function as microstates governed by Islamic Sharia law. Host-country authorities effectively have lost control in these areas and in many instances are unable to provide even basic public aid such as police, fire fighting and ambulance services."

 

Border Scam. Immigration Officers Blast Border Bill: "The new 'border security' bill is 'a global joke,” Palinkas says: “H.R. 399 ...does nothing to preclude anyone in the world from turning themselves in at the US border and obtaining automatic entry and federal benefits."

 

War.  Iran, Obama, Boehner and Netanyahu: "Iran has apparently produced an intercontinental ballistic missile whose range far exceeds the distance between Iran and Israel, and between Iran and Europe.... The expanded range of Iran’s ballistic missile program ... makes clear that its nuclear weapons program is not merely a threat... to Israel and Europe. It is a direct threat to the United States as well.

    "Boehner has asked Netanyahu to address US lawmakers on February 11 regarding Iran’s nuclear program and the threat to international security posed by radical Islam. ... [By] having Netanyahu speak on the issues of Iran’s nuclear program and radical Islam, he will advance America’s national security."

 

Planning Genocide?  Europe Offers Israel the Peace of the Dead: "...what the Europeans are promoting by their actions is the exterminationist agenda of the Palestinian leadership and reeks of age-old, murderous European anti-Jewish bias. 'Palestinian Authority media, mosques, and schools, like those of Hamas, incessantly indoctrinate their audiences in the message that the Jews are colonial usurpers and their presence, and their state, must be expunged. ...it is the responsibility of all to emulate those heroes in the struggle for Israel's annihilation." See GENOCIDE & Human Nature

 

Planning Genocide?  2,000 People Killed in Nigeria as “Allah has Commanded Us in His Book”: "Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau has claimed responsibility for the mass killings in the northeast Nigerian town of Baga and threatened more violence. As many as 2,000 civilians were killed and 3,700 homes and business were destroyed in the Jan. 3 attack on the town near Nigeria’s border with Cameroon, said Amnesty International." 

 

Promoting Islam. UCLA Broadcasting Muslim Call to Prayer Declaring ‘Allah is Great’ on Campus: "'I bear witness that there is none worthy of being worshiped except Allah,' the common Muslim chant, known as the adhan, declares.'“I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. … Allah is most great.'”

 

Empowering Obama.  GOP leaders to grant Obama 'enormous' new power: "Buried in his State of the Union address, Obama said he will ask Congress to give him 'trade promotion authority.' ... But critics charge that it would cede the Republican majority’s control of the congressional agenda to Obama and strip Congress of its ability to vet and amend international agreements....

    "The sweeping international agreement would merge the U.S. economy with 11 other nations, including Brunei, Malaysia and Vietnam, nations that practice Islamic law and persecute Christians and other non-Muslims." Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

 

Immorality.  Obama in State of Union: Same-Sex Marriage is ‘America at Its Best: "...in his State of the Union Address, Obama said that legalization of same-sex marriage in the United States is one of the things he has seen that represents 'America at its best.'”

 

Scorning Christians. Christian school forced to close as inspectors brand children "BIGOTS" for not knowing what a Muslim is: "Inspectors have labeled pupils at a Christian school bigots and forced it to close after a young boy gave the wrong answer when asked what a Muslim was. ...[The school's] inspectors concluded: 'Leaders are failing to prepare students for life in modern Britain.'"

Mass Abortion.  The twisted medicine of immoral America: Killing your baby is a choice; protecting your baby is a crime: "Throughout the history of collapsed civilizations, nearly all of them experienced a phase of rapid morality decline that preceded their ultimate implosion. The Nazi regime promoted the 'science' of genetically-selected eugenics and mass death to 'cleanse' the human race... and then went on to commit heinous crimes against humanity, many of which were carried out by chemical companies that later became today's best-known pharmaceutical giants such as Bayer." See Who defines Right or Wrong in today's corrupt culture? 

 

Mind Control.  Parents frantic as public schools indoctrinating students in Islam and Sharia: "..the United States public school system curriculum has been hijacked by the Pro-Muslim Common Core platform with sickening results. Children are being forced to say the shahada, and forced to learn the Five Pillars Of Islam. ... The Arabic writing on the black flag of jihad (al Qaeda flag or ISIS flag) is the shahada. This chant of supremacism and imperialism is being forced on American school kids." See Spreading Islam through Public Schools

"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
