One day we will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ and be required to account for our lives. Now is the time to repent, before it is too late! “In the past, God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31). Dear friend, if you sense the conviction of the Holy Spirit tugging at your conscience, then fall on your knees and cry out to God from a repentant heart. Ask the Holy Spirit to take full control of your life and to help you daily walk in humility and dependence on Him.
-Brother Yun (with Paul Hattaway) from “Repentance,” pg 21

JUBA, South Sudan – The 17-year-old beaten to death for refusing to marry a man old enough to be her grandfather. The teen dragged by her family to be raped to force her into marrying an elderly man. They are among 39,000 girls forced into marriage every day around the world, sold like cattle to enrich their families.
More than one-third of all girls are married in 42 countries, according to the U.N. Population Fund, referring to females under the age of 18. The highest number of cases occurs in some of the poorest countries, the agency figures show, with the West African nation of Niger at the bottom of the list with 75 percent of girls married before they turn 18.

As the international community watches in growing concern, the death toll continues to rise in Syria. According to a United Nations report in early January, more than 60,000 people – including government troops, members of the Free Syria Army (rebel forces), and innocent civilians – have been killed in the conflict.

This film may offend some people, it may disturb many and yet, despite the drastic revelations that the film makes, it may make sense to countless others.
Persecution and deception are never “easy” topics. They are rampant today, and this video sheds a new light on them.
I am posting it so that viewers can come to their own conclusions.
While radical Russian Muslims are fighting to take over Dagestan for Islam there are secret Christians engaging in a different type of war, a spiritual one.
“I want to do something a little different this morning. I have been pouring over the news, from the State of the Union Address to the war in Syria, the uprisings in Egypt, the tensions between China, and Japan, China is even growing tired of North Korea, and the UN is trying to figure out how to respond. The recent mass killings and the manhunt for a shooter. There have been 2 murders in the East of our Country of 2 Christian men from New Jersey, they were beheaded and their hands cut off.

Human-rights activists say the situation for Christians in Syria is growing more intense and that the ever-shrinking Christian population is near the breaking point. Middle East Forum fellow and analyst Raymond Ibrahim is one who holds that opinion, and adds U.S. support for the rebels is the major reason for Christians fleeing Syria. “In Syria, again in the name of democracy, the U.S. is supporting jihadis who are eradicating the nation’s Christians,” Ibrahim said. “U.S.-backed freedom-fighters are driving away Syria’s indigenous Christians.” Which, he said, leaves Christians few options.“Christians in the Middle East are running out of places to survive,” Ibrahim said. Syria’s Christians have also been the victims of inhumane violence. Ibrahim says one example was an incident involving a Christian cab driver. MORE
