Pray for Christians in Sub Continent

Last year the Christians in India were targeted by Hindu and Islamic cults.
This year, it seems that Pakistan, Bangladesh and the other sub continent nations are having wide spread abuse against Christians including rape and forcible conversions. We need to keep our prayers going for these nations to abide by international law and human rights and protect Christians from these attacks.

It would help if those Islamic nations that do allow Christians to worship freely would speak up against those who use force, terror and violence in every case.
For more information go to persecution.org and Voice of the Martyrs. And remmember that as long as there are those who use fear, terror and evil to spread their faith, Christians will be persued as enemies. Evil’s father is the Devil, and those who use evil to spread their beliefs are tools of Satan not any God that they claim.

Allah is Arabic for Anonia. Anonia is Hebrew for Yahweh, the God of Abraham and all who believe in Him.

Songs of the Persecuted and the Redeemed

Psalm 14 and Psalm 15

Only fools say in their hearts,
“there is no God.”
They are corrupt. and their actions are evil;
not one of them does good!
Psalm 14:1

Only fools say in their hearts there is no God. When David was pursued by Saul, king of Israel and Judea, and the Philistines, he wrote songs that lamented his conditions. He complained to God that he was surrounded by fools that did fear God nor respected Him. Even in the Land of the Chosen of God, His own people, rejected the word of God and sought after their own ways. Today it is much the same. Christians are challenged each day and in every way as they try to live in the Will of God. Enemies of the True Faith in God seek to force us to renounce our beliefs or to alter them in such ways as to make the Word of God no longer valid. In order to stay in their safe circles or to include those outside of faithfulness to the Word, they make concessions or attack those who stay fast in the principles of Right Living. By their actions they show that evil lives within them. And those who persecute the Faithful, those who hunt them down or make false charges against them, are corrupt and fools. Psalm 10:4 says, “The prideful have no room for God.” And so it is, those who reject the Word even in part, reject God. Their Pride has become God and they have no room for the reality of His Grace.

Prepare For More Persucutions in the World Today

As we sit at our computers and complain that we are going through “hard times”. suffering from the effects of the recession, the possibility of job loss (if we haven’t lost our job already), and the high cost of food and gas, in reality we are just a bunch of whiners. Still here in America we are the most blessed with the fortunes of low costs in comparison to other nations and we still have more food per capita than any other country in the world. We more importantly have a freedom of religion that is still the bench mark for the rest of the world. Even as we complain about the secular and anti god movement to restrict public displays of our faith, we still enjoy the right to worship were and how we please.

The real struggle is there are places with no food all, no jobs, no future. And because the “rich” nations are held synonymous with “The West” and the West is “Christian”, and add to the fact that most Christian Churches do not run around armed to the teeth, Christians have become targets of their poverty and suffering. Churches, schools , orphanages and health clinics are targets of their frustration. While we sit in our comfortable homes watching wide screen PPV in HD with surround sound, while we drive our SUVs to the mall to buy the latest IPODs, blackberries and Blu Ray discs, poor hungry people are being led to believe that it is the fault of greedy Christians that live decadent lives. They have nothing and because “Christians” want to change the way they have lived for hundreds of years, change is for the worst and to them, disaster. they are being told that “Christians” want to keep them impoverished and enslaved.

God’s Law on Widows and Orphans: (The Prophets)

Psalm 146 is one of the most powerful songs of the Old Law. It is referred to as The LORD an Abundant Helper. “How blessed is he whose help is the God Jacob (vs. 5),Who executes justice for the oppressed(vs.7) The LORD protects the strangers; He supports the fatherless and the widow;But he thwarts the way of the wicked. (vs.9)”

It has always been clear to me that the responsibility of caring for the neglected has rested on the churches. Because the Nations have been under the Law of God, they should share in the burden for those who can not be helped by a church. Because the churches and the synagogues are unable to take on the burden of those who are not afflicted with a faith. But it also takes a commitment by the people to be honest with their tithe and their offerings. There are many organizations that are not Church Affiliated that are doing wonderful work but it still falls upon the Children to set aside a portion to care for the needs of the community. Because of the many that do not know the Lord and who unreachable to the Word, the government should reach out to them.

The message that is being placed here is that the churches need to step up and take charge of the caring for the widow, orphans and the homeless sojourners that fill our towns and cities. When God told the people Judea and Israel through Isaiah to Repent, He said (Isaiah 1:17) “Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the ruthless; Defend the orphan, plead for the widow.” He continues with (vs.18) ” Come now, and let us reason together.” He then proceeds to tell them of the transgressions against God and he ends with: (Isaiah 1:23) “…They do not bring justice to the fatherless ant the widow’s cause does not come to them.”
