I was wondering about this recent perspective that has developed (since the sixties) in the world and has infiltrated the body of Christ as well.
In today’s life we are told that people do horrible things because of low self-esteem -if we can only build someone’s self-esteem, they will be positive and will make the right choices. However, God in His word, says the exact opposite. He says – all of us are sinners (Romans 3: 23), that we love ourselves (Ephesians 5:29) and it doesn’t matter how much we try and change our actions, heart, or our behavior, we can’t. Sometimes we can pretend to ourselves we have changed – but it is not permanent (Romans 7:18-20).
“Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?” (Romans 7:24)
I was reading Elizabeth Kendall‘s blog this morning and was saddened by how bad it is for Christians in the world. Prophecy is being fulfilled as Yahshua spoke of in Matthew 24:9: “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me”, which is also a good indication of where we are on His timeline.
Please have a look at http://www.elizabethkendal.com/action/, an article written by Elizabeth Kendall in which she gives good information for how we as Christians can help.
There are organisations like https://barnabasfund.org/ who works on ground level with the Body of Christ in countries like Syria. They also offer ideas and support how to practically get involved e.g. writing to our governments.
We should all pray and ask God how to get involved and to receive grace to stand with Him and his persecuted body in this last hour.
Just the other day I happened upon a Youtube clip of Nadine Al- Budair – a courageous Muslim woman brave enough to speak the truth. An ezer-kenegedo in action, we want to acknowledge her voice and share it with you. Below is the (translated) transcript of the video clip of her for those who have the time to read, otherwise view the Memri TV Youtube clip here.
