Christians in many 3rd world and developing countries are persecuted because of their faith in Jesus Christ. At the Sunday School, the teacher asked whether the children were willing to die for Christ? in a few moments later, many were dead being killed by faith based terrorist. For Christianity, it is a sacrifice for standing firm in faith to believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. This firm standing to the end caused their deaths, not any religious wars or causing harm to others. Just standing is a fight of faith.
The children who died for their faith were part of a small Christian community in Sri Lanka, where over 400 died due multiple suicide bombers who were motivated by religious faith. There were more than 8 times the numbers died, yet the response from liberal Christians was deeply sickening and very quiet as many such as Clinton and Obama, refused even to mention that they were Christians (she called them Easter Worshipers, nor they even mentioned the faith motivations of the terrorist).
Deep in antisemitism, are liberal Christians any different from the white supremacist? not really, the liberal Christians are mostly white anyways. If they do no harm, and return to let justice flows down like a river instead of trying to be god themselves, perhaps there is hope yet for their message of love which is now clouded with humanism, prejudice, hypocrisy and harm.
Their very dull response to the Sri Lankan terrorist acts is contrasted with the repeated mentions of White Supremacist and religious phobia in the Christchurch bombings. Liberal Christians have shown great bigotry and Christophobia because these Sri Lankan Christians died for their faith in Jesus Christ whom the liberals have all but rejected Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Mentioning the faith motivations of the terrorist would all but destroy their religious construction that faith is about love. They don’t have tinted glasses, but they just do not want to open their eyes to a see the real world but hide behind their own bigotry and faith construction.
That was the problem with the Student Christian Movement whom in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, have turned from preaching Jesus Christ as Savior, to a Marxist liberation theology. There was no conspiracy, they were simply turning away from faith in the Cross of Calvary to worshiping self. That was their own prerogative to have Marxist beliefs hidden behind the facade of social justice. They just couldn’t see the evil and anti-Christianity of the despot Marxist rulers of the last 50 years.
Matt 23:37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! 38 See! Your house is left to you desolate; 39 for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ ”
The Liberals in Europe and Britain are doing their best to condemn Israel in what they termed as occupation of the West Bank or Palestine. Ironically, the word Palaestina was given by the Romans after the Jewish revolt about 60 years after the fall of Jerusalem. The Romans killed millions and ultimately even wanted wanted to wipe the remnants of Jews by calling Judea a new name, Palaestina. Therefore, when liberal Christians called Jesus, a Palestinian, they are subscribing to the harm and the millions killed and deported from Judea. The Europeans (ancient Romans) will call for the state of Palestine as separate from Israel not because of social justice but because of conscience. If the Jewish lands stolen and taken from them by the Romans become a separate non Jewish state, it would forever absolve the Romans (aka European Union) of the deaths of millions. It would whitewash history.
The Jews were persecuted because they remained in the faith in the God of Israel, and hope remained for the freedom of Zion, for the freedom of Jerusalem from her occupiers, the Romans, Ottomans, and the Arab nations. They had remained faithful to the God of Israel for two thousand years, and soon they will call Jesus Christ as the blessed one, the Messiah who is the Son of God, for they will see Him and His glory protecting Israel from harm, as the Ottomans and Persia seek to invade from the north.
Liberal Christians are white washing history and doing replacement theology where the Cross becomes upside down, the epitome of human effort and the symbol of the anti-Christ. There were many anti-Christs in the past, the Ceases who killed millions in Judea, the Jesuits and their counter reformation, the rise of Nazis and the 6 million died in the Holocaust, the destruction of Constantinople by the crusades of the church hierarchical leading to the rise of the Ottoman empire.
It is said that the world is getting darker before Jesus comes back which is not true, because it has always been dark ever since the fall of Jerusalem in AD70. The Reformation in 1517, and aborted by the Counter Reformation with millions dead, and the Holocaust in Europe, the deadly plaques of the Dark Ages, and the two World Wars. The crusades brought the fall of the Eastern Church thus enabling the invasion of Europe by the Arab people of faith thus resulting in millions dying. Massive faith based religious wars have been a constant together with nations conquering other nations to steal their resources.
The Holy Spirit of God is moving mightily and the heavens suffers violence, as territories are taken away from the demonic principalities who rules the world. We are not called to take up arms, to side with other faith/civil/activist groups, or even to rise up against governments. Jesus didn’t do that. He didn’t call for the Romans uprising. He only called for believers to be baptized unto the cleansing by water and blood because of Jesus death and resurrection. We are risen from our baptismal waters because Christ is risen. We are cleansed because His blood washes us. The hardest is to remain in the faith that Jesus died and rose again, and the only fight really is the fight of faith to enter into the rest bought for us by Jesus Christ at the Cross of Calvary.
We eat the bread at communion because we eat of the broken body partaking the blessings of Christ for His body was broken in our place so that we can receive healing and spiritual blessings. We are called to receive the Holy Spirit and not the Spirit of humanism of their world. We stay at the upper room and pray so that we receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit as contrasted by the baptism of the demonic spirit of the world ruled by Satan through pagan worship.
The greatest Spiritual battle is happening and it is not gay marriages, but the Full Gospel returning to the liberal Western nations including Australia and New Zealand. And it will get much worst with the economic collapse of Europe, the collapse of the stock market in the US. There will be anger and uprising by the white supremacist in response in wide spread unemployment and suffering. Meanwhile, the Ottomans and Persia, the ancient enemies of Israel will have hardened hearts and will try to attack Israel but will not be able even to enter the borders for the days of the gentiles are long over.
It is sad, but we are having massive persecutions of Christians in Africa, Middle East, South Asia and China because God is working in these nations to bring revival like never before. The Great Wall of China is going to break down, the victimization of Christians by Marxist China. It will start with the massive economic upheaval in China as a result of the severe economic, housing, and stock market downturns in the US and Europe, with regional conflicts in the Middle East and South Asia. In the meantime, the church hierarchical burdened by gross sexual abuses will fight for her existence against the rising Pentecostals and the Charismatics in South America, Asia and Europe.
In the midst of the coming turmoil, there will be increasing peace in Jerusalem and revelation of the return to the Freedom of Zion, for even the rockets by night would return to the sender.
Is 52.7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
Rom 10:15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
And the Good News of Jesus Christ as God’s grace, love and mercy will be preached to the ends of the Earth for Jesus Christ is coming back to Jerusalem. Prepare yea the way.
