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.
