From time to time, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I share e-mails that I receive. Today, I will do this.
On October 14, 2015, I received this e-mail from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). Here's what was sent to me:
ISIS - the Islamic State - is raping, crucifying, and beheading Syrian Christian missionaries.
The horror is unspeakable, but we must speak out.
ISIS jihadists are now targeting Christian missionaries for public atrocities. In one Syrian town, Christian women missionaries were publicly raped.
These Christian women responded by singing and praying aloud to Jesus. Then ISIS beheaded them and crucified their dead bodies on crosses.
In another location, ISIS’s barbaric army captured Christian missionaries, including a 12-year-old boy. They crucified them – forcing a crowd to watch in horror.
At the ACLJ, we’re engaged through our international offices. We’re working in Congress as our critical recommendations are being considered in key legislation, and aggressively advocating to defend the persecuted Church and defeat ISIS.
But now is the time for your voice to be heard. ISIS must be defeated. Christians must be protected. It is our sacred duty to be heard.
Sign Our Urgent Petition: Stop the Genocide of Christians Today.
ACLJ Chief Counsel
Yes, the horror is unspeakable, just as was written here. But, we must speak out, just as what was said on this e-mail message.
We must try and do whatever we can for those being persecuted for their faith.
I must admit that I feel badly that I am not aware of any Christian group doing in Canada, what the ACLJ is doing in USA.
Sometimes, the general public doesn't truly know what is truly happening. Or, may not understand.
Much like I've heard a lot, lately on the newscasts... by those, who think that it matters not if our government confirms that those who claim to be refugees, truly deserve refugee status.
No matter the case, there are wicked people working for ISIS. They seek to slay infidels. Meaning, they seek to slay anyone who is not Muslim.
They watch the righteous. Meaning, they watch true Christian believers. And, then attack, whenever they can.
Just as we read, in Psalm 37:32, "The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him."
God has told us so very much, in His Word, the Bible.
He has made it clear that the wicked do whatever they can to slay righteous people. People who are truly walking/living for God.
We know this will happen.
Not just because it is truly happening, at this time. But, also because God gave us the prophecy that is being fulfilled, at this time.
Even though I am a person who can be slayed, I am grateful to belong to Him.
For, if I wasn't saved by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, then I would spend eternity in Hell, separated from God, with no chance of escape.
However, because I have gained salvation, I will not have to worry. I will spend eternity in Heaven, once my life here on earth, ends.
By speaking up/out, we can then plant those seeds for Christ. This way, people can come to realize they too, need salvation.
So my friend, please... speak up/out. And, do whatever you can to help those being persecuted.
May God bless you, for doing this.
Until next time...
