I’m an American, and I marked Christmas with a fear of the future. I think things are going to get very rough for Christians worldwide.
Remember, the same person who is funding Morsi and the Islamist takeover of Egypt...is also president of the United States.
The Islamists are only allowing Christmas to be celebrated in order to more readily identify Christians so that they can persecute them more efficiently.
But in the end, those who put their faith in Christ, will come out of this victorous because of a victorous Savior.
That is exactly right. We have already won,the entire Heavenly and demonic hosts know it, and too many Christians are trembling in their foxholes.
Prayers up for them.
Pray for believers in harms way in the middle east,
For anyone sitting on the sidelines, this is spiritual warfare at work, its past time to choose sides.
Isaiah Chapter 27:13
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem.
