No Christians will not respond to kidnapping-murder of fellow citizens in Christ

It is difficult to determine how many Christians understand what the Church of Jesus Christ is suppose to represent. But from the lack of rage, from the church over global atrocities. Like the kidnapping of 23 South Korean Christians in Afghanistan. Followed by the murder of two Christians by Muslims, it seems accurate to say few.

This is an age old problem that dates back before the church came into existence. In Matthew 23:37, Jesus expressed his grief over his generations failure to understand. “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets, and stone them sent to you. How often would I have gathered your children together even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not!”

Would not do what? Intervene by stopping the killings and stoning of those sent to announce God’s plan for humanity. Because of such behavior, Jesus said, “your house is left unto you desolate,” verse 38. Meaning without power or influence. It has always been God’s plan for his house to call the people and the nations to righteousness. Failure to do so starting with the Jews of his generations. Progressing to the converts of Christianity through the centuries has had the same effect; a house desolate. Because even in conversion to Christianity, most will not!

Always leaving the job to the few, but a few is all Christ expects. For in Revelation, the plan of God sweeps quickly across the centuries of time. “Blessed are those who read, and hear the words of this prophecy (entire Bible). Keeping those things which are written in it; (plan and purpose) for the time is at hand,” Revelation 1:3.

Time at hand meaning to get busy with the work of the Church. Through out the Bible wherever God expresses dissatisfaction he offers hope. It is no different as one pages through the book of Revelation. Study and understand the prophecy from Genesis through Revelation. Then swing into action implementing God’s plan and purpose for humanity. So that like John, an angel might someday signify there is a servant of Jesus Christ. Who bore witness of the word of God. And of the testimony of Jesus Christ, Revelation 1:1-2.

Concisely, the above represents the will of God for individuals. How individuals execute the will of God is a different matter. What does matter is that Christians to do something to advance the plan and purpose of God.

This can be exemplified in this following manner. By now most know, that 23 South Korean, Christians were recently kidnapped. The kidnappers are practitioners of Islam. Who executed the groups Christian pastor, Bae Hyung-kyu. Followed by the murder, execution of Christian volunteer worker Shim Sung-min. In South Korea, he worked as an information technology professional. In Afghanistan he worked to help the poor. Helping to carry out the plan and purpose of God. Which, included following Peter’s example. By encouraging people to repent, and to be baptized every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, Acts 2:38. No doubt that was the reason the 23 South Koreans came to Afghanistan.

The 23 South Korean Christians fate should be of grave concern to all Christians around the world. To Jesus Christ they are more than Koreans. They are our fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God, Ephesians 2:19. Whose house no doubt is not left desolate according to Matthew 23:38.

The execution murder of our fellow Christian citizens does not have to be left to governments to resolve. Because, they can not with out compromise. The Taliban is demanding that Afghan President Hamid Karzai, release from prison their colleagues in murder and slaughter of the innocent. So that they can turn around, and commit more atrocities in the name of Islam.

Christians need to quickly come to understand that Islam is of Satan. Islam once may have been a religion of merit. Islam has lost its way and now travels the path of darkness. Today, Islam is the enemy of gender equality and pluralism within modern civilized societies. This the first thing Christians can do to exemplify the plan and purpose of God. Christians need to expose the evil of Islam.

Next, every Christian body (Catholic-Protestant) should organize. Inform mosque leaders in their community around the globe. Of their absolute repugnance, for the kidnapping, and murder of our fellow Christian citizens. Marches, and demonstration should occur wherever a mosque is found. Muslim sympathizers, and propagandist must be made to feel our Christian outrage.

Muslim organizations like C.A.I.R. or the Council American Islamic Relations. With a mission they say is to protect the civil rights of Muslims. Rights that Islam denies through out the Muslim world. It would appear from observing Muslim murder and mayhem around the world. That C.A.I.R.’s real motive is sooth to sleep an unsuspecting community with smooth talk. Then they strike when the time is right to extinguish an unsuspecting civil and pluralistic society. Substituting democracies with Taliban like regimens.

More could be said, like the closing down of local mosques. Not allowing the creation of additional mosques. Making it impossible for Muslims to immigrate to Western countries. While making it easier to get rid of this Muslim menace, on our collective shores. This paragraph is the subject matter of workshops. This writer clergyman, can be found through the navigation link.

From South Carolina President Bush got it right

Ever think about what the world population thinks about God? Why some people are willing to surrender their lives for Allah and his prophet Muhammad? While others, not all, curse both Allah and Muhammad. Of course, it works the other way from the Muslim perspective when looking at Judaism and Christianity. Sure it applies to other religions as well. But it seems that the Jews, Christians, or Muslims are the religions that will ultimately determine the outcome of world history. Even whether there will even be a world, as we know it, in the future. Now no matter how one looks at religion that is powerful stuff. The ultimate say for human destiny from the perspective of their God.

President Bush might be close to understanding this modern day phenomenon. When addressing the world, from a South Carolina military base. Attempting to deflect criticism from congress concerning his Iraqi policy. The President said, “That would be news to Osama bin Laden. He’s claimed that the third world war is raging in Iraq.” Osama bin Laden on another occasion said, “I was ordered to fight the people until they say there is no god but Allah, and his prophet Muhammad,” November 2001. The President again quoting bin Laden, “The war is for you or for us to win. If we win it, it means your defeat and disgrace forever.” The President has said on other occasions. If America with draws from Iraq, al Qaeda will follow us home. On this issue, President George W. Bush, is correct.

A new paradigm is now on the world horizon. One which is not understood by many. Unfortunately, most in the United States Congress. And with a swelling American following, steeped in ignorance, as to what really is occurring in Iraq. Making it very difficult for this President to navigate this war. This Iraqi war takes the world back centuries. To a time, when war was about religious dominance. For many in the Muslim world, that is what the Iraqi war now represents. No matter how the Iraqi war turns out there will never again be any sense of global stability. This Islamic revolution has been launched, and it will know, no turning back.

Without doubt there will be some very satisfied religionist if the end occurs from the perspective of their God. Leaving the rest of humanity not doing so well, if they hooked up with the wrong God.

It’s safe to say, from a Christian perspective that our God is not happy about the choices, we Christians have made. So, it seems fitting that the last book of the Bible tells us how the end will play out. Much like a national sporting championship event. With the coach’s having developed the perfect game plan to guarantee a national championship.

Now here, we are, we got the Bible! The perfect life plan to guarantee a happy ending. Lets trust that we as Christians do not find the end not to our satisfaction. The end time religiously is the final outcome between two historic foes Judaism and Islam. With Christianity getting involved with the advent of Christ. Making it a Judaism/Christian verses Islamic struggle. Only one of these three religions can emerge with the final prize. Just like in sporting events there can not be two champions.

No matter how it finally ends, humanity will ultimately experience some not so pleasant times. During this journey, God gave humanity the church. The church has not been up to doing the job God expected. That last book of the Bible makes that very clear.

John, the writer of that book records God’s displeasure. An angel tells John, that the Amen, the faithful and true witness, of the beginning of the creation of God. Finds the church a deplorable mess. This church is in a state of not being very useful. It is in a state of decay. Without vision or any sense of direction, Revelation 3:14-17. God orders the church to become zealous for his cause and repent, verse nineteen.

Apparently, the church becoming a zealot for God and repenting did not occur. Because John, takes us on a journey to the fifth trumpet, chapter nine, of the book of Revelation, verses seven-twelve.

Some theologians think that this fifth trumpet is in reference to Islam.

John writes, about these Muslims, but first a look back in history.The book of Judges suggests that the description of the locusts parallels another account in history. In Judges, the Midianite Arabs are pictured in massive numbers afflicting great suffering on Israel for seven years, Judges chapter six. These theologians report that Islamic history says that locusts fell from the sky’s into the hands of Muhammad with the following inscription on their wings,”We are the army of the Great God.” Note verses, 3, emphasis on children of the East, Midianites, Amalekites or Muslims. Verse four, destroying the agriculture, and live stock, all the way to Gaza. The number was so great that they are pictured as grasshoppers on camels as they entered into the land to destroy it, verse five. And the story continues with Israel being impoverished, v.6, and begging for help because of the Arab’s, v.7. Then the Lord sends a prophet telling them in behalf of God what has been done for them. Constant deliverance from the Arab’s. The account tells us that God gave the people of Israel; Arab lands, v.8-9. Telling them not to fear Allah, verse ten. The problem all through history is that the people will not obey God, verse ten. Always forced to suffer the consequences.

From that picture in Judges, we return to another picture in Revelation chapter nine. Where we see the picture of the “shaped like locusts” who were like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore crowns that were like gold. The Muslim turban is a head dress of importance. To some Muslims its a symbol of status in the community. Also showing them, as descendants from Muhammad. Intentional knocking off a man’s turban insults his dignity. Thus we have “crowns like gold,” verse seven. In verses seven and eight, we have the expression,”their faces (locusts) were like the faces of men,” “hair like the hair of women.” A reference to long beards and uncut head hair of Muslim men. They are also characterized in verse eight as being very strong capable of inflicting much damage. Then in verse nine we have “breastplates of iron, ” considered to symbolize that they are protected by Allah as they go into battle. This fighting force has great versatility going into battle. Symbolized by having “wings like the sound of chariots,” also suggesting speed or ability to come and go. An enemy hard to define and contain. They have “tails like scorpions with unusual stings,” verse ten. Suggesting a new weapon of warfare that the enemy (Jews/Christians) are not expecting. They had “power to hurt for a short time; five months,” verse ten. Suggesting shortness of time to defeat the enemy. This power and effectiveness was so great because of great leadership. Categorized as an unwanted experience like something from hell itself. Described as “Abaddon” and Apollyon” meaning “destruction” and “destroyer,” verse eleven.

And there is more to come, verse twelve. Because the call found earlier, was ignored. Revelation 3:19-20, ” As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten; be zealous, therefore, and repent. I stand at the door, and knock. Hear my voice, and I will come to you.

This writer is available to lecture on the times and trends of these days. Making connections to Biblical texts. Audiences will either accept or reject such theories. That is what choice is all about. One thing is certain, people will have their thinking cords stimulated.

There is no way of knowing with certainty whether the analogies made in this posting pertain to the global conflicts between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Leading to a global conflict requiring the Muslim God, Allah, or the Jewish/Christian God to intervene and spare humanity from self annihilation. That is what the book of Revelation ultimately reveals. Unfolding world events suggest the possibility of such a scenario.

What makes this very interesting is that three great religions have varying Gods. These God’s have given the world three great books. Referred to as game plans earlier as a take on the national championship sporting events. And like those events, only one team could emerge as the winner. So, it is with these great religions, and their great books. Only one religion has the winning game plan from their God. Subsequently, to emerge with the truth and its subsequent rewards.
