My heart is heavy today, as once again, my attention is drawn to the suffering my own brothers and sisters are enduring. It is a cold heart—a heart not belonging to the body of Christ, which is able to remain unaffected by the following news. Those we love are being tortured and killed. Persecution is widespread and running rampant. The forces of wickedness are angrily lashing out to heap misery and death upon believers of The Way: Followers of Jesus the Nazarene.
Hundreds of Christians around the globe have purposefully adopted a symbol, a mark which enemies of the cross have used to identify us, and label us as infidels. We wear the “N” for Nazarene with proud distinction as being believers in Jesus the Christ, the Son of the Living God. For we know it is not Christians who are the infidels. The bible declares those who reject Christ as Messiah and perpetrate violence against their fellow man to be the infidels. Arrogant reprobates, deceived by the enemy of every man, woman and child.
We take comfort in God’s promises, knowing that He cannot lie, and that He has all power to mete out His holy justice upon those who are true infidels. And we shall be fully vindicated, wearing the brilliant white robes of our righteous Christ.
“I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant, and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless.”
Isaiah 13:11 ESV
Please take a moment to view this short trailer produced by ‘Voice of the Martyrs’, an organization I fully stand behind. Join us as we pray for those who are suffering and dying for the cause of Christ. And if you live in a free country where you are able to worship and pray without fear of your government or others attacking you for your beliefs (if such a nation exists) be thankful. Persecution is coming for all of us. It is here in the U.S. right now. We are being sued and taken to court for exercising our right to freedom of religion. It will get worse. Remember that we have been told ahead of time: “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” 2 Timothy 3:12 NIV
