Yup. Interestingly, as a kid, I was taught what Jeremiah is teaching and could never understand who in this day and age would behead people? (those who live during the tribulation and are beheaded are resurrected first). I always imagined the french guillotine. Not anymore. And the people I see doing it, invaded Israel when God avenged the innocent children sacrificed to a false god. Interesting, indeed.
I don't think that there has been a year since Christ's death where somewhere somebody has not been beheaded or done other atrocious acts. We are no different than our predecessors.
