News from Syria since the migrant crises’ birth is confusing at best. Where are the Christians? Are they left behind? I have heard that many are hanging on by a thread of Faith. Reports from Catholic agencies paint a dire picture for those Christians that have stayed in both Syria and Iraq. Some aid coming from Lebanon, but those who have chosen to stay are in dire straits. Especially with the conflict escalating no aid is forthcoming. As we know reporters are unable to travel freely due to the threats and the fact that Journalists are a prime target for the Daesh. One report from Catholic News Agency cries out as I have, where is the outrage, where is the demonstrations, where is the thousands of letters written to our government?

At the beginning of 2015 a report by the BBC cited a Christian Patriarch’s statement about the crises and plight of Christians in Syria: “There is no safe place left in Syria. The future of Christians in Syria is threatened not by Muslims but by… chaos… and the infiltration of uncontrollable fanatical, fundamentalist groups,” he said.” Read More
I have to agree with others that this Arab Spring and so called civil war in Syria is not concerned with religious liberty or democracy with freedoms for the people. It is more concerned with spoils of war and toppling dictators. Assad is not a angel, nor is he the perfect leader, but religious freedom was not an issue under him.
I know that in areas like Homs when Assad’s forces pulled out it left the minorities like Christians there to be slaughtered as sitting ducks. I know that these Christians who have stayed are suffering untold events not only from the Daesh, but from the Chaos that has transpired in this region. NO aid can get through, no one is focused on victims, no one appears to care. No one heeds the pleas for help as these cries are silenced by the flood of immigrants and what chaos this millions of people are causing in Europe.
We must not remain silent. We have been shamed into deeper silence by the left in this country and even our own president. By shaming the very thought that we want to know about the Christians in Iraq and Syria. That we would want attention drawn to them, most don’t want to leave. Most want to stay in their homeland. Some have fled leaving families who refused to leave there, and fear they will die. They have faith, they have faith in God but have lost faith in the world at large to help.
As our president and others join in the war to topple Assad, Daesh becomes less significant than what western leaders are causing there. We must speak out, don’t let them shame us back into silence. Speak out, be a voice, demand our congress take action for Christians and other minorities left in the dirt in this chaos. Speak out. Don’t let them bury the genocide of Christians and their suffering anymore.

AS THE SILENT CRIES OF TORTURED BABES IN A MOTHER’S WOMB CRIES OUT FOR JUSTICE SO IT IS WITH THE PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS GLOBALLY!! THEIR BLOOD FLOWS AS ABEL’S DID WHEN CAIN SLEW HIM AND THE ROCKS CRIED OUT. WHAT WILL JESUS SAY WHEN WE STAND BEFORE HIM? IN SHAME WE SHALL HANG OUR HEADS BECAUSE WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO EVEN SPEAK. CHURCH, PASTORS, MEMBERS OF THE BODY OF CHRIST…..ARE YOU READY FOR PERSECUTION? WILL YOU STAND FOR CHRIST OR LAY DOWN AS EVIL SPREADS. WE HAVE BEEN SOUNDING THE WATCHER’S CRY FOR YEARS. DEAF EARS AND ONLY FEW HEAR. WHAT SAY YOU?
The government is working its plan. It appears that the representatives have “sold out” for the sake of money and position, and oil.
It appears that those in authority do not care AT ALL what the people think or want. It is plain that “we the people” are being ignored. It is obvious that Christian Genocide is happening globally. It comes from the highest offices. It is part of “the plan”.
Our ONLY HELP is in the LORD our GOD.
A malaise has descended over much of the population, and it looks like the governments of the world are aiding and abetting the wave of CHAOS that is pouring over the earth, both here and in Europe.
We must FAST and PRAY and WEEP before the LORD+. We must enter in The “War Room”. The weapons of our WARFARE are NOT carnal, but ARE MIGHTY through GOD to the DEMOLISHING of Strongholds. Let us send TERROR in Prayer, through the unclean beings in the heavenly places, in JESUS’ Name.
HEAVENLY FATHER, help our Family, our Brothers and Sisters across the earth. Protect the Body of Your Beloved SON+.
Amen. And you are totally right. It’s time to put on the Armor of God, plant our feet firmly and take a stand. For we battle not with flesh and blood: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12
