Do you not see with your eyes how the main stream news media in your country fails to report all the persecution of Christians worldwide?
In places where war is taking place, nation against nation and tribe against tribe, sect against sect, persecution of those following Christ Jesus is at highest to the point that many are being put to death via many forms, decapitation, burning and various other forms.
Yet do we see the news media trumpet this persecution and violence against those who follow Christ on their front pages? No we do not and if it is reported it is consigned to some back page and only a very words are written about those who follow Christ in these countries being put to death for their belief.
All the main stream news media outlets are being carefully managed as to what news is released for the masses to read and consume. Even in this country, New Zealand, I have watched how very little news on Christians in Syria and the tremendous persecution they are facing actually is written about. Again if it is written about it is very carefully hidden within their digital and hard copy publications so it is difficult to find.
In a world that blows its own trumpet in saying all men are free to worship whom or what they believe without fear of persecution, are words that are hollow and have absolutely no meaning whatsoever for their actions prove something different.
The world and its news makers speak of many other religions but when it comes to the followers of Christ Jesus, they turn their backs on them and totally ignore them and choose not to stand by their side.
When Jesus was taken before Pilot in one encounter these were the words spoken: John 19:10-11 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee? Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
In this exchange Jesus made it clear to Pilot those who had delivered Him (Jesus) to him (Pilot) had the greater sin.
The news makers of this world without a whimper had over Christ followers to those in this world who are intent on spilling their blood on the ground. My words here are to you all and you shall hear them again from the mouth of God himself in the day of judgement.
In the matter of the lives of my people being put to death for their belief in me and for failing to stand with them, you have the greater sin for you looked away and choose not to see or hear their cries in the time of their need. You had the power and means to speak to the whole world but you choose not to do this thing and so their blood is upon your hands and you are now required to account for it.
He who has ears let him hear. Knowing all things and seeing all things the Lord God Almighty knows man will even ignore these words as their hearts are hardened and they are stiff-necked and will not hear my words as it was in times past, but my justice and wrath will come upon all who have laid their hands on my anointed ones and it shall be swift and sure and in a time they least expect it to happen.
