"for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name." - Jesus. Revelation 3: 8
There is a Jesus revolution happening around the world. The Holy Spirit is going to shake the foundations. I really believe that Jesus is out to see as many people saved as He can and bless the pants off the world with His goodness and message of this being the year of His favour. The enemy knows it and Satan is doing the only thing he knows to attempt to stop it. Killing and destroying as many Christians and non Christians as possible under the cover of 'gods name'. We all know what happened when he orchestrated the death of Jesus by the Jewish Pharisees (who claimed to know God). Salvation's by the thousands. Some Christians are calling for physical vengeance and retaliation and also God to be vengeful. We need to spur Christians on to fight a spiritual battle where God will set captives free, heal the broken hearted and bring life.
Yes, stand against the atrocities that are taking place. Speak out against it. Pray for the ones who are being persecuted, but also for Gods goodness to penetrate the lost that are witnessing, instigating and even perpetrating these things.
This is not the time of Gods Judgement on earth. We save that for Jesus' return.
This is a time where God can be found and the year of His favour. It is disgusting what is happening in Iraq and other places and I cannot imagine what I would do in the situation. But those people, in the face of death and the horrible deaths of their children refuse to denounce Jesus as their Lord and saviour. That's saying something about Gods role in this. Jesus knew this was coming. It happened to Him. We are on the edge of revolution and revival. A time this world has never seen.
I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.
Its Gods heart that every man be saved and its by loving and forgiving that causes men and woman to turn to him. Not through coercion. Until Jesus comes back, that’s my view.
