It's been a while since I shared some special info with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). Today, I'll do it, again.
Even though I receive e-mail from this group on a fairly regular basis, I don't always share it with you. But, I will, now.
The e-mail was from Jay Sekulow, ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) Chief Council. I copied and pasted it, so you can read it:
The evil gets more unspeakable each day.
The latest reports reveal ISIS (the Islamic State) is using exploding necklaces to barbarically blow up alleged spies.
They've been committing these atrocities against Christians for years. Enough is enough.
Somewhere between 1 and 2 million Christians have been slaughtered or displaced in the cradle of Christianity - abducted, raped, beheaded, crucified, and worse.
We successfully pressured the Obama Administration to recognize this "genocide against Christians."
Now we have an obligation to act under the Genocide Convention.
We've launched a multi-pronged legal advocacy campaign. We're mobilizing our global offices in the most expansive campaign for the persecuted Church we've ever undertaken, preparing numerous legal memoranda, advocacy letters, and policy proposals to Congress, President Obama, the U.N., and genocide agencies.
Be heard for your persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ today.
Sign Our New Petition: Stop the Genocide. Protect Christians.
ACLJ Chief Counsel
Reading this, and thinking about it, makes me pray.
Every day, I pray for those who are being persecuted for their faith.
After all, God has revealed the truth about what is happening throughout the world. About how Christians are being persecuted. Just as you read in today's letter from ACLJ.
Whenever I think of the persecution brothers and sisters in the Lord are experiencing, makes me think of many Bible verses, including Matthew 10:22, "And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved."
My friend, if you truly stand up for Christ, you shall be hated of all men for His name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
The end, is usually... death.
Life isn't easy. But, God is good.
He helps everyone through the troubles they experience in life. As long as they belong to Him.
Are you trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ?
If not, then you may not suffer through this life, here on earth, as much as those who have gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ. But, when your life here on earth ends, you will suffer for eternity... in Hell... separated from God, with no chance of escape.
If you have truly gained salvation, then you belong to Him. You may suffer here on earth. But, once your life here on earth ends, you'll spend eternity with God... in Heaven. Yes, forever.
My friend, if you haven't yet gained salvation, please come to Christ, today. Tomorrow, may be too late.
Until next time...
