More horrible, unspeakable accounts of atrocities are coming out of Iraq perpetrated against everyone of non-muslim faith, mostly women and children, by ISIS. Women being raped, beaten and buried alive; innocent children being tortured and beheaded wholesale by the hundreds ; and when I think of our children and grandchildren . . . . The local villagers who would normally effectively defend their homes and families are out-gunned being that ISIS is caring top-of-the-line US weaponry. A picture was also taken today of an ISIS insignia posted in front of the White House.
For a little while we need to set aside our debates concerning pronunciations and traditions and pray for those that are in harm’s way in fashions that most of us could not even begin to fathom. Yes, we are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and Israel, understanding peace will not come until the Prince of Peace returns. God will fight for His land and keep His promise. We MUST stand in the gap for these that are being systematically exterminated for their failure to convert to Islam . . . or just for being.
Just like the ‘Simultaneous Sh’ma’, we implore you, as a world-wide body of believers, to cry out to God for His intervention in this virtual genocide. We must bombard the throne room with our petitions to the Righteous Judge who ‘hears the prayers of His people’.
Secondly, we are challenging everyone on Facebook that has one ounce of compassion for these people that are being exposed to unimaginable terror to contact every government representative you can get access to and DEMAND we take direct, immediate and decisive action to help the helpless from this onslaught. This is what needs to dominate FACEBOOK, every other media outlet and our prayers until relief comes. ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ this if you agree, but don’t stop there. If you don’t agree, God help you in the place where you are . . . for it’s a sad, dark place.
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me and their was no one to speak for me . . .
