The news from Iraq is very dire and shocking. What is more shocking than this is the silence from western governments and the UN. As ISIS continues it’s demonic rampage thousands are being sysematically slaughtered, starving or dying of thirst.
The Washington Post is reporting on the Yazidis who have taken refuge in a Mountainous area, they are dying of thirst. The Iraqi government attempted to drop water to them, but many children and innocent people are dying.
One lawmaker in Iraq begs the parliament there for help, begs the world for help stating “”Mr. Speaker, we are being butchered under the banner of ‘There is no God but Allah!”
Why in a world where our leaders like Obama have created chaos and havoc in creating a diverse world where a cry for freedom for all, is this allowed and even condoned. Condoned because silence is complicity, and complicity is aid to this demonic ideology. Why is the world afraid to confront this? Not only in Iraq, but Syria, Libya, Nigeria, Sudan and other places, even Gaza. Why? The sin of omission is sin just the same. (James 4:17) So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
What is even more shocking is that Christian communities are even silent, or denying that this is transpiring. Why when the gates of Hell have been unleashed are they silent? We have an abomination claiming to be God, we have demonic forces slaughtering by the hundreds and there is nothing but silence from the Body of Christ. We have church leaders in these areas begging the world for help and silence. We have one voice in our government here speaking out and even defining for the world the definition of ‘genocide’ and still silence. (More) There are very few recognizing what this is.
God’s people started here, Christianity spread here, and satan is trying to end it here. Why is God’s warnings unheeded? Why do some think that tribulation has not begun? Why are some denying persecution? Persecution of Christians, Jews, and other minorities like the Yazidis? John gives a clue: they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?” The whole of Revelation warns of this very thing. John tells us of a kingdom divided that unites to devour God’s children, he tells us of the very scenario we are witnessing, forcing all under threat of death to accept this ideology, forcing all to accept or face starvation. And even today we are hearing the cries of these saints: “How long Oh Lord?” It’s time to watch, it’s time to actually see what is happening, it’s time to prepare, it’s time to unite in Christ, it’s time to pray.
