Lucas 21:12 “But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of My name.”
The spirit of antichrist is here! On hundred million Christians around the globe are currently suffering. They are real, and they are our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Headlines across this world tell the stories of kidnapping and torture, bombings of Christian churches, and the torching of Christian businesses. Christians are being subjected to sharia law. Other headlines state that if you are a suspected Christian missionary, you will be “dealt with harshly.”
Islamic imams are preaching religious hatred in mosques. The systematic destruction of churches and desecration of Christian religious objects by Jihad is becoming common place. The city of Mecca is officially barred to non-Muslims. As a Christian you could be sentenced to death under frequently invoked Islamic blasphemy laws.
A Muslim mob armed with guns, axes and sticks attacked Christians worshipping in a Salvation Army church. Christian converts were beaten by Muslim villagers wielding bricks and clubs, and threatened with death if they did not leave town. Christians were prevented from using the only potable water well in town because 42 former Muslims were baptized as Christian believers in the local river.
Government authorities recently demolished a church building, despite prior government approval of the project. The church was built on donated property after the entire village had converted to Christianity.
New Christian converts must officially be de-registered as Muslims and re-registered as a Christian. Hundreds of Christian churches have been burned to the ground and never rebuilt due to Muslim violence. Torture and ritual slaughter is an everyday occurrence. Regulations require advance permission for non-Muslim public events, aimed at limiting Christian evangelism.
Moroccans are considered Muslims at birth and face three years in prison if they attempt to convert. Moroccan Christians must operate covertly for fear of imprisonment by the government and attacks by Islamists. They cannot bury their dead in Christian cemeteries, and they must be married by Islamic authorities or face charges of adultery. A Muslim mob stoned, stripped, beat, and finally stabbed to death a Christian teacher and publicly burned confiscated Bibles.
Needless to say, any country where you will find radical Islam, you will find persecution of Christians. The following is only a partial list of countries that are openly hostile to Christians. Be warned, you would not want to be caught dead here: Irã, Iraque, Egito, Gaza, Arábia Saudita, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Indonesia, Peru, Cyprus, Líbano, Algeria, Morocco, Nigeria and Eritrea.
In many instances, the government and religious authorities in Muslim countries work hand-in-hand with their campaign of religious persecution. Incidents of violence, discrimination, intimidation and murder targeting Christians in the Islamic world are on the rise. The fact remains that not a single Christian or Jew will be able to live in peace within a Muslim new world order.
Modern Muslims are raging a global war against the Jews and the Christians. (“Saturday people first, then the Sunday people”) This issue needs to be addressed. We are heading toward a new Holocaust perpetrated in the name of Islam. The headlines prove it, the Bible declares it.
