  Persecuted Christians

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


"The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies." Psalm 18:2-3

"Please pray for Christians around the world who are persecuted for their faith!  May God protect His people and guide our nation through these tumultuous times! 


War.  Democrat erupts on Obama for 'World War 3 potential': "A member of Congress recently undressed President Obama’s Middle East policy as 'illegal' and 'counter-productive' because it is 'arming our enemies which are radical Islam' and trying to take down a bulwark against that enemy in Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. The potential for a 'wider conflict,' potentially World War III, is real....

     "Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, said the U.S. and Russia are on a collision course over Syria that could result in World War III if not de-escalated.... The U.S. and the CIA should stop this illegal and counter-productive war to overthrow the Syrian government of Assad and should stay focused on fighting against who our enemy is, the Islamic extremist groups,' she said....

     "...right now we’re seeing why this is counter-productive... by working toward the overthrow of Assad we are not only strengthening our enemy, the Islamic extremists... but it also puts us in that position of a potential direct head to head conflict with Russia... a potential World War III situation.”


Taking a Stand. Top Christian voice uncorks on liars in media, politics: "Ravi Zacharias says Europe, America, and the entire free world are being lied to by their politicians and most of their media, who refuse to ask the appropriate questions ... War in small increments can be deadlier than large scale war because it doesn’t just desensitize the killers; it desensitizes all of humanity.....

     "...those who try to break with Islam invite horrific consequences of their own. A man in Britain who converted a decade about from Islam to Christianity lives in constant fear of attacks. The father of six, Nissar Hussain, was brutally beaten outside his home.... 'This is the new Britain. This is the path Britain has chosen,' 'Zacharias says.... The lie has a shelf life. The truth abides forever,' he said. 'God can even conquer through our perversion.” See The School of Joyful Endurance


War.  Female ISIS Recruiting Cell Uncovered in the Heart Of London: "A cell of ISIS-supporting women has been uncovered operating in London, meeting in tax payer funded buildings and recruiting young women into the terrorist group. The women... claiming that the British were at war with Muslims, that Muslims had a 'duty' to join the Islamic State and decrying the 'filthy Jews'. The women also urged immediate 'Lee Rigby style beheadings' on the streets of London..." See Four Faces of Islam


Persecution. Get Ready for Persecution in the West: "...the tide of public opinion is rapidly turning against true Bible believing Christians. It is time for followers of Jesus to get ready for persecution in the West.

     "...our brothers and sisters are facing severe persecution in many parts of the world. Beatings, starvation, beheadings, and burned homes & churches are everyday life for them. I want to ask you to stand in prayer for them because they have placed everything on the line for faith in Jesus. They are family and we are called to support each other....

    "This world celebrates the lives of the wicked and vilifies the lives of the righteous. We are certainly living in a day when evil is called good and good is called evil.… When I say that persecution is coming, I’m referring to the hate and actions of a godless world against Christians."


"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness." Isaiah 5:20


Islam.  Orange County Government School Has ISIS/Muslim Promoter as 7th Grade Teacher? "The School Board needs to question how a promoter of ISIS/Muslim 'values' got into a government. No need to worry about Syrian refugees bringing terrorism into our nation—in Orange County TEACHERS are promoting bigotry, hatred, anti-Jewish and anti-Christian attitudes—as part of the education experience.” See Spreading Islam through Public Schools


Transforming America.  150 on flight from Mexico allowed to skip customs, leave JFK airport: "American Airlines Flight 1671 arrived at JFK from Cancun, Mexico, at 8:50 p.m. Friday. When the plane landed, passengers walked out of the airport without having their passports or bags checked by Customs and Border Protection..."

Islam. Obama Strategy for Containing ISIS: Shut GITMO, Cancel Christmas? "As our beleaguered president mulls the chaotic state of the world, much of which is attributable to his arrogant, ignorant behavior, and his adamant refusal to accept the truth about the correlation between terrorism and Islam, our fragile planet spins irrevocably towards World War III. ... Indeed, Obama believes that Islam is the epitome of righteous, humane principles, fully deserving of being admired and respected globally as a 'Religion of Peace.'”

Islam.  We Absolutely Need a Religious Test for Refugees: "...Obama hit Republicans last week for suggesting the U.S. should favor Christian refugees over Muslims: '…[W]hen I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which a person who’s fleeing from a war-torn country is admitted... that’s shameful...' But there are very good reasons to apply a religious test to Syrian refugees. The first is that some religious groups – Yazidis and Christian Arabs in particular – have been singled out for slaughter, slavery, and expulsion..."See Islamic Villages (in America) and European Muslim 'No-Go' Zones

Corruption of Education.  University of Missouri Audience Applauds as Ben Shapiro Rips Aggressive Professor: "Shapiro said, 'There’s never been a bad person on planet Earth who has not felt justified in doing his or her bad thing. All colleges do now is give people reasons to feel justified in doing the bad things that they want to do....'

     "At the end, Shapiro added a heartfelt personal comment...: 'You can ban reporters by calling for muscle. By the way, why Melissa Click is still employed at this University is absolutely beyond me.' ...The crowd’s applause showed the cathartic impact of someone speaking the truth out loud at the University of Missouri." See Mandatory Training in Orwellian Thinking


Video: Journalist speaks the truth about Paris attack & much more.


Spiritual Warfare.  Exposed: Obama’s Love for Jihadis and Hate for Christians: "Obama recently lashed out against the idea of giving preference to Christian refugees, describing it as 'shameful.'  ...Of the 2,184 Syrian refugees admitted to the United States so far, only 53 are Christians while 2,098 are Muslim. .

      "..the overwhelming majority of 'refugees' being brought into the United States are not just Muslim, but Sunnisthe one Muslim sect that the Islamic State is not persecuting and displacing. After all, ISIS—and most Islamic terrorist groups (Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, Al Shabaab, Hamas, et al)—are all Sunnis. Even Obama was arguably raised a Sunni.... As for those who are being raped, slaughtered, and enslaved based on their non-Sunni religious identity... many of them are being denied refuge in America." See Rage


Climate. Prominent Scientists Rip Climate Change Ahead of UN Summit: ‘Irrational’ – ‘Nonsense’ – ‘False Path’:  "Sorry, Al Gore. Your 'science' is a total scam and you know it. There is a major push to discredit this false science at the Paris summit starting on November 30. The United Nations is using global warming as the motivator to stampede world leaders into accepting Sustainable Development. If enough leaders of other countries understand this, they will balk and turn the summit into chaos." See Green Lies and Deceptive Science


No Conscience.  Obama blames Republicans for rise of ISIS: "In the wake of widespread ISIS terror, most recently seen in Paris, France, with the death and injury of hundreds, President Obama came out swinging against Republicans, calling the political party a 'potent recruitment tool' for the terrorist organization. He was referring to the GOP’s growing call to refuse Syrian refugees into the United States out of concerns for safety of American citizens....  Obama also called it 'offensive' that anyone would suggest only Christian refugees, not Muslims, should be admitted across America’s borders." See A Chronology of the UN: The Revolutionary Steps to Global Tyranny


Conspiracy.  Honduras arrests five Syrians headed to US with stolen passports: "'Five Syrian citizens have been detained and will be taken to our offices to be investigated because it is suspected they are carrying false documents, passports stolen in Greece,' Baca said....' 'This year, 12,600 foreigners were detected illegally entering Honduras, almost all of them with the aim of getting to the United States." See The Fall and Rise of Human Violence


Lawlessness.  Al Qaeda Terrorists Entered United States Through Refugee Program: "Two Al Qaeda terrorists who had killed American soldiers were able to enter the country as refugees.... [The]...two Iraqi refugees settled in Bowling Green, Kentucky, after killing American soldiers, whom they bragged about having 'for lunch and dinner." See The Emerging New World Order


Lawlessness.  8 Syrians Caught at Texas Border in Laredo: "Two federal agents operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are claiming that eight Syrian illegal aliens attempted to enter Texas from Mexico in the Laredo Sector."


Obama's heritage. Did Obama just say he's a Muslim (again)?: "Born to a Muslim father and raised in his early childhood by a Muslim stepfather in a Muslim nation, where he was registered in school as Muslim, Barack Obama has many ties to Islam.... Obama, who as president has supported the Muslim Brotherhood, even referred in a television interview to 'my Muslim faith.'...    "The headline... following a recent Obama speech in Turkey read: 'Did President Obama Just Admit He Was Muslim?” See From Freedom to Servitude


Obama Administration. Obama says Syrian refugees are no bigger threat to U.S. than ‘tourists’: "President Obama said Thursday that Syrian refugees are no more dangerous to the U.S. than tourists, and he accused Republican presidential candidates of stoking fears about the refugees...."


Islamic Transformation.  Obama is importing Muslims, deporting Christians: "Those of us who fear that Islamic radicals might be lurking among the refugees have been called every name in the book: bigots, Islamophobes and un-American. But the cold hard reality is that Protestants, Catholics and Jews aren't the ones beheading people. "But the president says such prudence only further enflames the Islamic jihadists. “ISIL seeks to exploit the idea that there is a war between Islam and the West,” he said. “When you starting seeing individuals in positions of responsibility suggesting that Christians are more worthy of protection than Muslims are – in a war torn land – that feeds the ISIL narrative.” "...maybe he could explain why his administration is importing Muslims and deporting Christians." See Islamic Villages (in America) and European Muslim 'No-Go' Zone


Lawlessness.  Why Won’t We Call This Islamist Terrorism?  "...radical Muslims, like moths to a flame, gravitate toward the affluent and leisured West — the recruiting grounds of ISIS are often in Europe and North America — as if they too want the security of civilized landscapes, but not the institutions that birth and nurture them....

     "'The more the West welcomes in migrants from the Middle East who break immigration laws and issue demands on their hosts upon arrival, the more radical Muslims see such hospitality as weakness to be despised rather than as magnanimity to be appreciated.'"


Administration.  Top Aide Huma Abedin Warning State Department Staffer That Hillary Clinton Is 'Often Confused': "...Abedin advised Clinton aide and frequent companion Monica Hanley that it was 'very important' to go over phone calls with Clinton because the former Secretary of State was 'often confused.

"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
