(Voice of the Persecuted) [updated] Over 70 people including Christians were slaughtered celebrating Easter at a children’s park in Pakistan. Jamaat-ul-Ahrar has claimed responsibility for the attack admitting they targeted Pakistani Christians and threatened future attacks. The death toll in Brussel’s has risen to 35. Israel has warned it’s people to get out of Turkey. Syria and Iraq are on fire as is Africa. Maajid Nawaz addressed what needs to be understood in this report,
“… in the context of the global jihadist insurgency that is upon us: unprecedented in its scale, pluralistic in its leadership, fractured in its strategy, nevertheless inspiring in its central message, and popular enough in its appeal that it is able to move masses.”
“…in the month of March there have been jihadist attacks in eight different countries, and I’m not including the ongoing jihadist civil wars in Afghanistan or Syria, the similar one brewing in Libya, and smaller scale attacks and killings across the world. Turkey, Ivory Coast, Iraq, Mali, Nigeria, and Belgium have all fallen prey to this insurgency.
A jihadist guerrilla war is being waged against world order, and the international community is woefully unprepared to address the problem.”
Christians are slaughtered and kidnapped yet barely a whisper from the churches in the West. We have asked many American Christians to raise their voices but the majority remain silent. Not even a mention when 2 of our own were killed in the Brussel’s attack. What’s happening? Do you not know that silence condones evil? That it is evil?
Take a trip through social media posts and it will sicken you. Christians are more concerned with tearing each other apart and judging others, including Christians, than they are in saving people from the coming disaster. Then, those who watch and warn and are met with scoffers and disdain, too many wishing to ignore the “doom and gloom”. However, they’re quick to put out prayer requests when hardships or illness affects them. Is that wrong? Absolutely not! We should be willing to lift one another up. But how can we pray for the persecuted church when we have no willingness to share or even hear news of their persecutions? How can we come to their aid when we have no idea what they need?
Where are the calls for unity in the Body to defeat this evil in prayer? The persecuted are receiving visions to use the weapon of prayer against the dark forces coming against them. Do we doubt that reality because we have never had a divine vision? Even the Pope is calling for prayers for God’s hand to stop this evil. Prayer is our direct line to the Father. Yet the majority of the churches in the West are silent.
Our Brethren across the globe are suffering, dying and enduring torture, and we can’t even unite in prayer. It is one of the worst humanitarian crises the modern world is facing. But we are sound asleep as the bridesmaids in the parable of the Bridegroom. It’s sad and it’s shameful.
God did not command us to carry on as everything is normal. Jesus said it would be as in the day’s of Noah, people would be marrying, and celebrating as though nothing was wrong. Our own leader in America dances the tango in the face of evil while the world explodes in violence. Using the excuse, we can’t let them disrupt our life. My God, have mercy on us. Forgive us Father.
Dear brothers and sisters, Jesus knew man’s reaction to things unpleasant. He warned us in advance of the troubles we’d face, particularly as the Day of the Lord draws near. He warned us so we would not be caught off guard. That we could brace ourselves and stand firm, unable to be knocked off the foundation. He is with us, he makes us strong and we can handle anything when we are in Christ! When one in the Body suffers, we all suffer. But we can go through it with them as if a part of our own body has been injured. Jesus makes that possible!
Open your mouth, demand your church leaders address this. Unite in prayer. We are in a great spiritual battle with evil forces. There’s a reason God said, “Come out of her my people lest you go down with her.”
“For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.” I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.…
What are we doing? Instead of getting into the word of God we are trusting in man, some even trusting in horoscopes, mediums and evil spirits though we’ve been warned against it. Some call it entertainment so it doesn’t count. Who whispers these things in their ears? We find ourselves more concerned with offending those who are lost and worshiping false gods, than we are with saving the lost. Political correctness, the buzzword of the decade has effectively silenced the Body of Christ. Wake up! I recall a dream I had about many executions by hanging and being woke up with the words: “They will die in their sins.” But we are silent because we don’t want to offend? The One we’re offending is the One who may tell us, “I don’t know you.” Wake up sleeping bride.
The world is reeling like a drunkard. You would think that the body of Christ would be on it’s knees in prayer, not partying and carrying on like nothing is wrong. We can only warn, hope you listen and open your eyes. LORD, wake up Your Church! Church, listen to the LORD.
Remember Jesus said:
But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’

(Patheos.com) The clock is ticking in the final hours before Secretary of State John Kerry’s announcement. Will the State Department make a determination of genocide for the victims of ISIS? And if so, will that critical determination be given only to the Yazidis — who definitely deserve it — or also to Christians and other religious minorities targeted for extinction by ISIS?
According to law, the State Department must make its determination to Congress by March 17. But before that, Congress is set to make its own determination. Scheduled for 6:30 PM tonight, Monday, March 14, the full United States House of Representatives will vote on U.S. Representative Jeff Fortenberry’s (R-NE) H. Con. Resolution 75 (mentioned in this previous post).
Explaining the rationale for this resolution, Fortenberry said in a press statement on Friday, March 11, “When ISIS systematically targets Christians, Yezidis, and other ethnic and religious minorities for extermination, this is not only a grave injustice—it is a threat to civilization itself. We must call the violence by its proper name: genocide.”
On March 2 the House Committee on Foreign Affairs passed the resolution by unanimous consent. And when it goes to the full House for tonight’s vote, it goes with 203 co-sponsors from both the sides of the aisle. Chances are very good that by tonight, the full House of Representatives will have taken a stand for the Christians, Yazidis, and other victims of the Islamic State’s horrific genocidal brutality.
But will that stand extend to the U.S. State Department? If the House passes the resolution, it will be more pressure on the State Department to come back on March 17 with a genocide determination that includes Christians.
It is absurd to even have to type that sentence! Of COURSE it is genocide. Statements have come out in recent days from several human rights organizations, Christian leaders, newspaper editors, and even top genocide scholars providing overwhelming evidence of ISIS’ genocidal intentions and genocidal actions. Previous to this, international bodies such as the European Parliament, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, and others have declared ISIS’ actions to be genocide.
But the Obama Administration has attempted to justify a possible omission of the Christians by basing their determination only on the findings of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s report on the Yazidis. It is also reported that the State Department’s perspective is that ISIS’ actions against Christians can’t be considered genocide because if the Christians pay the jizya, the Islamic tax, they get to live!
On that topic, first of all, whoopee! How noble and magnanimous of ISIS (and every other Islamic supremacist group from the time that Islam starting invading) to allow people to pay a shakedown fee and then be allowed to survive and have a miserable existence as a conquered people, constantly humiliated and reminded of their second-class status!
Second, ISIS is not applying the jizya in the way that is prescribed by Islamic law. The tax has always been onerous, but it has at least been within the realm of possibility for Christians to pay. The payments demanded by ISIS have been outrageous and nothing that anyone could ever afford to pay. And there have been cases where Christians have paid a “tribute” and then they or members of their families have been killed anyway.
And finally…ISIS is attempting not only to eradicate Christians, but to eradicate Christianity itself from the Middle East. Yazidis, Mandaeans, and the people of all the other religious minority groups are “offensive” to ISIS, but Christians are not just offensive, they are a threat. They know full well that Christianity is the biggest obstacle to their global Caliphate. They know that the “People of the Cross,” which is how they addressed Christians in their “snuff video” of the 21 Martyrs in Libya, are a threat to Islam. And although they can’t stop God from sending dreams and visions of Jesus to Muslims that are resulting in record numbers of converts, they can try to kill all the converts.
You can read about the difference the designation “genocide” makes for Iraqi and Syrian Christians in this article. But to see what is, call it by its proper name, and defend the victims of this evil is not only important for the victims of genocide. It is important for the moral health of our own nation and for our own spiritual health. God said it best (naturally), when He says in Isaiah 58:
Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
(Isaiah 58: 6-9, emphasis added)
Here are some prayer resources you may find useful:
Please pray for the House resolution tonight, and especially for the State Department determination on Thursday.
*”The Way of the Cross” is a painting by a Christian from the churches in the Nineveh Plains, now living in a village outside of Dohuk in the KRI. The rivers represent the Tigris and Euphrates, and so the lands that the Christians have lived in for 2000 years. They have always suffered, but always climb the way of the Cross. The snakes represent the evil that they must run from, and the black snake is ISIS.
Voice Of The Persecuted Editor’s note: Please pray that hearts will be softened, and eyes open in this country for lawmakers to recognize the world wide persecution of Christians.
