Anyone Hurting? 

Pray one for another. 

Galatians 6:1

Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

Join me in Prayer for Parwasha-Christian Family

Islam?  I  ask where is the peace loving in Islam when they can take an innocent 8 year old girl and beat her and strip her naked and leave her on the side of the street?  How can anyone call that peaceful?

This morning this 8 year old girl was listed in our bullitan under prayer requests. It didn’t go into great detail so I looked it up to get more information and below is the article I found. Please pray.

A Muslim family in Pakistan beat an eight-year-old Christian girl and left her naked on the street in order to punish her uncle for courting a Muslim girl, according to reports.

The Muslim family allegedly abducted the Christian girl, named Parwasha, on her way home from school, before beating her and stripping her naked, leaving her clothes in the garbage.

Parwasha’s uncle, Iftikhar Masih, had been dating a Muslim girl named Samina, which infuriated the girl’s family. They decided to take revenge by dishonoring his niece as they felt Samina had been dishonored by Masih.

After being released, the girl ran home to her family, who appealed to the village elders for help. Not receiving any, the family then went to the local police station, but were told that the Muslim family had already filed a complaint against the Christian family for shaming Masih’s Muslim girlfriend, Samina. The police then arrested several members of the Christian family.

In its 2015 report, the U.S. Commission for International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) presenting a damning picture of religious liberty in Pakistan, noting that “the Pakistani government engaged in and tolerated systematic, ongoing, and egregious violations of freedom of religion or belief.”

The report stated that Pakistan’s legal environment is “particularly repressive due to its religiously discriminatory constitutional provisions and legislation” and that the government “failed to protect citizens, minority and majority alike, from sectarian and religiously-motivated violence.”

Pakistan’s Organization for Legal Aid is preparing to file charges of assault for the aggression suffered by the girl, though the outcome is anything but certain.

“Sadly these cases go to Shariah Courts where Christian lawyers are not allowed to defend victims and Muslim lawyers notoriously provide shallow prosecution services,” said Wilson Chowdhry, Chair of the British Pakistani Christian association (BPCA), in reference to a recent similar case.

In this 95% Muslim country, “Pakistani authorities have not consistently brought perpetrators to justice or taken action against societal actors who incite violence,” the USCIRF 2015 report found.

Middle East Prophecy Update July 19th 2015

Thank you Pastor JD Farag.
Time is short.  God bless everyone

I Pray for Preparedness

This verse and commentary speaks volumes to true Christians.   Many of our brothers and sisters in the Middle East and China and India and Asia and numerous other places around the world are already undergoing this type of persecution.  It is beginning in America.  Brothers and sisters, judgment WILL begin in the church.  Why?  It has too. I kept hearing that but yesterday during prayer time it hit me like a ton of rocks.  I will cover that in a blog later today.   We first need to know it will happen.   I pray we are each prepared to stand up and give testament for Jesus Christ regardless if our families are running the opposite direction.   WHERE WILL YOU STAND WHEN THE RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD?

Mark 13:9-11
You must be on your guard. You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues. On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them.  And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.  Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.
COMMENTARY
In a great many situations, the Holy Spirit is engaging us to “say whatever is given to us at the time”. Today my prayer for us all is that we would be receptive and able to recognize the Holy Spirit engaging us and also be obedient to His leading. Doing this may or may not cost us our lives each time; perhaps it will cost our reputation, our free time, our sense of convenience or comfort. Often, being obedient to the Holy Spirit leads us to situations where we need to depend on God more and more. That is where we live for Christ: ruthlessly depending on God for everything, every day.

Look Forward to Your Goal

Keep hold and stand firm!
Walk in the Spirit not in the flesh.  I know…it is a minute by minute thing most days!  Keep on and don’t lose hope and DON’T LOOKING BACK LIKE LOT’S WIFE DID!  We have nothing in  this world but we have a better future in Christ Jesus!  Do you know Him?

2 Timothy 1:7

7 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

Lift Up Your Face to Heaven

Praise His mighty name! Our King of Kings and the King of glory!   Fear not dear brothers and sisters.  If you are looking death in the face today…fear not. Praise the name of the Lord.  Do nor fear what man can do to the body but instead fear the Lord God Almighty,  who was and is and is to come!

Psalm 90:2
2 Before the mountains were brought forth,or ever you had formed the earth and the world,from everlasting to everlasting you are God. #Bible
