Please Pray for Orrisa-Christians Persecuted
We take so many things for granite in America-such as being able to Worship our Lord Jesus Christ!!In countries like Orrisa-people are being tortured, killed or forced to convert or die!!This is real and heartbreaking-but our God knows all and he is with these Christians and their suffering!!As Christians the most powerful thing we can do is -Pray Pray Pray.Take these peoples and all Christians to our Heavenly Father in prayer!!The World is more and more turning from God in very hateful and violent forms, governments are condoning and sometimes assisting in the attempt to eradicate Christianity!!Our God in his Sovereignty ,his will be done!!We as Christians must stand strong and bind together in prayer for our sisters and brothers.The persecution will not stop, in fact it is becoming more prevalent and with a veracity not seen before. Even in America we are being called haters!Why haters?Because we trust in our Lord and believe his Word. He is the same yesterday today and forever.And believing His Word we are put at a stark contrast with the World and it's need to satisfy self and not serve our God!!In their need to satisfy self,in it's wretched state,they hate our God!!Their love for themselves,brings out the depravity of their souls.
Ephesians 2:3-Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.Ephesian 4:19-and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness. (NASB ©1995)Romans 1:28-And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper
In this day and time we cannot be divided among ourselves in Christ's church-we must unite in our passion for our Lord. Standing firm in our Faith-Knowing that as they have came for the Christians in Indian,Russia,Sudan,Iran,Iraq,Turkey,Britain,they will come for us also!!They have, from the day Jesus died on the Cross,but in the last year it has been with a fervor that is sometimes hard to digest,even as a Christian!!
Stay strong-Matthew 6:20-But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal;Ephesians 6:13-Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
