“…Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
If you had asked me 20 years ago if I would ever see Christians and those not of the Islamic faith murdered in public I would have said, “That day is coming…. but probably not for a long time.” Today, we watch Christians kidnapped and publicly murdered. We watch historical artifacts demolished. We watch the Middle East exploding in hatred not only toward Christians but also to Jews and Muslims that don’t follow ISIS stringent interpretation of the Koran across the world. I recommend looking up Wahhabism to get a better understanding of this form of Islam and the ideology behind the movement today. I am not an historical scholar, nor do I pretend to be a know all about Biblical eschatology. I have read numerous books and articles on WWII and the tragic and sick murders of millions of Jews at the hands of the Nazi’s. I have read of the 1915 Armenian genocide and I am very concerned with the same kind of ideology behind what is taking place today.
Here we are today with an evil group called ISIS that is calling for a Caliphate in order to empty the Middle East and even the world of those that are not of their faith. This Caliphate is not about those underprivileged and without jobs as our president believes. This Caliphate is of Biblical significance as this group goes through the land murdering those not of their faith and desires to make it’s ideology, that is their stringent form of Wahhabism of not just the land but where ever it goes, ultimately believe it or not to be the religion of the world.
This murderous crew kills moderate Muslims because the moderate Muslim is not “living” their ideology and theology correctly. ISIS is Evil. And this evil is I believe the beginning of the surge of the battle spoken of in the book of Revelation.
Do I believe we Christians just let this continue to happen? If I were living in Germany back in the 30’s and 40’s would I just let the Jews be slaughtered? That is the question today isn’t it? We as Christians understand the battle being waged against God and His creation – Humanity. We understand the battle being waged, don’t we? We understand the evil, the real satanic battle that is present in the flesh as people are getting their heads cut off. Don’t we?
Are we actually listening to our leaders deny what is really happening? Do we actually believe that somehow giving into those that want the Jew dead, that want our Christianity silenced as something that is righteous and good for the world? We are watching the beginning of evil versus God. We are watching the devil run rampant now… not in theory any more, he is actually doing what he has always done. Killing. Destroying. This is the devil’s work.
So? This is not a political issue as many in leadership would like us to believe. The propaganda machine at work called PC is literally killing the conscience of people. For to all humanity this murderous Evil is not PC. Nor was killing the unborn PC. Now we have a world that is literally watching heads being cut off. People being burned alive. The time is now to throw out the whole Political Correctness in the garbage. The time has come for Christians especially to not lay down, coward or listen to leaders that won’t call this regime evil. The time has come to stand up and fight this dastardly, barbaric, evil. Oh I know, fighting this evil may prolong the inevitable, but is it o.k. to watch lives being butchered? Is it o.k. to stay passively angry and upset and say or do nothing? I know, I know, if you would have asked me 20 years ago “Did I believe anything like this would be happening?” I would have said, “Not in my life time.” I know to many this interpretation of what is going on is far fetched. But to those that actually believe the Bible to be true this dilemma is really not so far off. I urge you to get reacquainted reading some Biblical articles on the book of revelation.
Yes, those of us that know of what the end will bring should not be surprised at the events unfolding. Nor should we believe one bit or even listen to how many are explaining these barbaric acts. We know what this really is…. the battle of good and evil is rapidly upon us. Don’t be afraid to care. Don’t be afraid to look deeply into truth. Don’t be afraid to be a Christ follower. Remember, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4.4
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless.
Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer
