Nothing cuts deeper than losing the attention of someone you admire, yet once we have shifted all our adoration to Christ; nothing heals more fully.
Don’t you feel it, beloved? Don’t you hear the song of Heaven singing His grace? Don’t you see the wounds that bought you? Look up and see that you have the full attention of Christ; and be renewed in that glorious revelation."
Yesterday the Islamist group ISIS read out an ultimatum to Chrisians from its Mosques. It called on Christians to comply by midday on Saturday or face death if they did not leave the northern city.
The ultimatum cited a historic contract known as “dhimma,” under which non-Muslims in Islamic societies who refuse to convert are offered protection if they pay a fee, called a “jizya”.
"We offer them three choices: Islam; the dhimma contract - involving payment of jizya; if they refuse this they will have nothing but the sword," the Isis statement said.
Please keep the native Christians of Iraq in your prayers as they face this threat against their very existence.
Pray for my people! God have mercy over all of the suffering souls and help us never forget that the world hated You first. Amen.
GOD is JUST.
HE WILL EXECUTE JUSTICE FOR HIS PEOPLE.
I was meditating earlier this afternoon that God is Just. I attended the prayer meeting tonight and was told to read the scriptures. I don’t have any idea what the scriptures say. And then as I read the verses, tears are lingering in my eyes. I did my best to hide my emotions. Tonight was all about God’s Justice and the revelation of God is: “Prayer is our road to Justice.” Afterwards, I told the preacher what God has done and how well-time is His Words and revelations. Praise GOD! One accord because of the Holy Spirit. All glory to God. [Luke 18:1-8]
