If you aren’t already, now is the time to pray for Christians in Iraq and worldwide.
Several Iraqi Christians “are nailed to a cross and their arms are tied up with ropes. The ropes are put on fire,” Voordewind said.Voordewind described how a person, who “survived” a crucifixion, “even showed holes in his hands,” apparently from nails. Voordewind said victims of the crucifixions are “in most cases Christian converts who abandoned Islam or people who, religiously speaking, are involved in mixed marriages.” –BosNewsLife
The so called religion of peace has persecuted us for our faith for almost 1400 years and today the liberally biased media continues let atrocities like this go unreported day after day, week after week, like it never happens.
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me. (John 15:18-22 NIV)
When you pray for the persecuted in this world, don’t forget to pray for your fellow Christians.
