Has the persecution of the end times begun? All over the globe, Christians are being beaten, intimidated, tortured and even killed. In India, Christianity is being called "an AIDS virus". In Afghanistan, political leaders openly call for the public execution of Christians on the floor of their parliament. In Indonesia, there is one city where Muslims spread dead rats and cow dung all over the area where Christians gather to worship, so the Christians have to clean it all up every week before they are able to gather for service.
Things are getting very intense out there.
Now there are increasing reports from around the world of Christians that are being sentenced to death for believing in Jesus.
In Iran, Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been convicted of "thought crimes" and he is now scheduled to be hung for the crime of "apostasy". Please pray for him and his family.
In Pakistan, a 37-year-old mother of two named Asia Bibi has been was convicted of committing "blasphemy" and has been sentenced to death. According to Asia News, Bibi was the one that was actually abused and attacked.....
Unfortunately, it was not the violent Muslims that were charged. Instead, Bibi had to face trial and now her children are going to be deprived of a mother.
Some of the women workers had reportedly been pressuring Bibi to renounce her Christian faith and accept Islam. During one discussion, Bibi responded by speaking of how Jesus had died on the cross for the sins of humanity and asking the Muslim women what Muhammad had done for them.
The Muslim women took offence and began beating Bibi. Afterwards she was locked in a room. According to Release International, a mob reportedly formed and “violently abused” her and her children.
In fact, a radical Islamic cleric in northwest Pakistan has offered a reward of $6,000 to the person who finally does put Asia Bibi to death.
How sick is that?
And we are supposed to believe that Islam is a "religion of peace"?
The truth is that persecution is coming to North America too. You can see the signs popping up everywhere now. For example, an atheist billboard that calls Christmas "a myth" has been posted in a prominent location near the Lincoln Tunnel - a 1.5-mile-long tunnel that connects New Jersey to New York.
Back on June 18th, two Christians decided that they would peacefully pass out copies of the gospel of John on a public sidewalk outside a public Arab festival in Dearborn, Michigan and within 3 minutes 8 policemen surrounded them and placed them under arrest. Remember, these Christians were on a public sidewalk and were only very quietly handing out literature.
The entire world is turning against the Christian faith. If you are going to be a Christian in the future, it may just end up costing you everything. Now is the time to decide which side you are going to stand on.
