To-day, as I sit at my desk concerned very deeply for the World around us and the terrible state we as world citizens have allowed our home to become, I wonder, is there anything that can be done short of the second coming of our Lord and Savior to save us from total annihilation. The Bible tells of the great tribulation where all those who believe that God sent his son Jesus to save us from our sins and take us away to be with him in Heaven and to join with him in the destruction of all unsaved sinners and followers of the Devil on this earth at what we call “ the Holocaust.” Personally, I know that I want to be on the side of our Maker for that scuffle. The Devil and his lot will get their final taste of what we well know as The Wrath of God. But In the meantime, what are we to do? The Pope and the Roman Catholic Church have been strangely silent while thousands are being slaughtered in the Middle East. Our clergy in the Protestant church pulpits seem to be on another page at least in the churches I have attended. Some TV evangelists are putting out the words of warning but sadly mostly to the already saved, but how do we know we are saved and ready to meet with our God? The answer is only by our giving over to our Maker all our sins, and believing that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died for our sins on the cross of Calvary.
We hear very little of the plight of the Messianic Christians that are being slaughtered by the hundreds, perhaps the thousands by ISIS bullies. This small group of Christians that worship the birth of Christ and follow the Bible of to-day but still hold true to many of the old Jewish traditions and worship in the Hebrew language will cease to exist if Muslims have their way. I am a Baptist Christian and have many of the same beliefs as the Messianic Christians, that being, adult or believers baptism. They believe in the birth of Christ but not the satanic rituals of the world of Santa or the Easter bunny.
Coptic Christians, all 13 million are in grave danger; 10 million are in Egypt and are facing terrible persecution. We are all on the hit list as far as the Koran believers are concerned. That book of worship tells it’s believers to kill the Infidel more than 60 times between its covers. Christians and all that are not Muslim are Infidels. This book of worship endorses hate and murder. Our book, the Bible, endorses Love. What side do you want to be on?
