LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat discuss the recent decision of the Obama Administration’s decision to appoint Rabbi David Saperstein as the U.S. Ambassador for Religious Freedom. This is a significant decision, as Rabbi Saperstein would be the first non-Christian to be appointed to this role. Persecution against Christians is being cranked up around the world; Christians in Northern Iraq are being given a 4 option ultimatum: leave, convert, pay Jizya Tax, or die. A true holocaust is being played out on the stage of the Middle East. CBN reports, in Iraq alone, 1.5 million Christians were once present; now it’s more like 350,000. The letter N, in the Muslim religion, is being marked on the sides of Christian homes and business, as “Nazarenes”, to bring persecution to them. With so much unrest happening in the Middle East, it all seems to come back to a piece of land that stretches 70 miles wide: Israel. Why is this such a concerning truth? When one looks far enough back into history, a similar story comes into picture. This story involves a King named Ahab, a Queen named Jezebel, and a Godly man named Naboth. What is the issue at stake in this story; Naboth’s land.
As the church, we cannot simply sit idly by and watch what is happening and receive it as present value, we must look deeper. We must look at it with a Biblical perspective. We must stand up for Israel and be the voice of truth amidst so much evil in the world. Right now, the silent majority is going to have to wake up and be a voice for truth and for Israel. When a stand is made for truth, persecution should not be a surprise. Jesus said it best from the Sermon on the Mount:
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Find out how moments such as these are so deeply important, what happens if we do not stand, what can happen if we do stand, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: President Obama, George Soros, Rabbi David Saperstein, persecution, Hamas, Mosul, Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and prayer. WATCH FULL PROGRAM!
