Global Persecution Of Christians Skyrocketing

by JASmius

And nobody outside The Way cares, but are either oblivious to it, cheering it, or doing it themselves:

Attacks against Christians around the world have increased significantly last year, human rights organizations say, and raising awareness among Americans is difficult because news coverage in part is tailored to consumer demand.

"I don't believe most Americans have an accurate understanding of the real state of Christian persecution around the world," David Curry, CEO of Open Doors USA, told the Daily Beast. "But for news consumers to clamor for such coverage, they need to be aware of the extent of the problem."

Kind of a self-defeating proposition, isn't it?  For "news consumers to clamor for" coverage of the rising planetary tide of genocidal Christophobia - assuming more than a smattering of them would - "they need to be aware of the extent of the problem".  But they can't be "made aware of the extent of the problem" unless they get the news coverage of it for which they don't know to "clamor".  Which is another way of saying that the major media do not and will not cover anti-Christian persecution because they either couldn't care less or they enthusiastically support it.  And so the escalating massacres continue, blacked out, embargoed, and not even learned about to be forgotten.

Because "those bible-thumpers and snake-handlers and 'fundies' had it coming," I'm guessing.

Based in Santa Ana, California, Open Doors USA is part of an international organization that tracks and brings awareness of Christian persecution.

More than seven thousand Christians were killed last year because of their faith — "almost three thousand more than the previous year," Open Doors told the Daily Beast.

The largest areas that have seen the fastest growth are the Middle East, Africa, and Central Asia, he said. The numbers are expected to climb this year.

And not be limited to those parts of the world, either.  It will spread and escalate to the levels of Revelation 6:9-11 and 13:7-10 while being celebrated as in Revelation 11:7-10.  And lest you doubt me on this, feast your eyes on this little detail:

Last month, human rights organizations pressured the Obama administration to declare deaths of Christians by the Islamic State genocide....

They had to be pressured to do this.  And the only reason they did was because they threw in apostate Muslims as well, downgrading the fallen Brethren to second-class/dhimmi status even in death.

"We were the sole secular humanist organization to press the State [Commissaria]t to label ISIS' crimes against Muslims and Christians as genocide," Paul Fidalgo, the communications director for the Center for Inquiry, told the Daily Beast. [emphasis added]

Nobody cares about the plight of the true martyrs except their brothers and sisters in Christ.  But if they were "Muzzies"?  The persecutors would feel Godbama's avenging devil wrath.  Or however much of it could be loaded onto TOTUS, anyway.

But those who slay the followers of Jesus Christ will face genuine wrath, eventually:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He Who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.  His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself.  He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.  And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.

That's the raptured Church.

From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.  And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in mid-heaven, “Come, assemble for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great.”

And I saw the beast and the kings of Earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him Who sat on the horse and against His army.

And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.  And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him Who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.

The Good News is, He Who will sit on the horse has already made it possible for all to join the winning side in this conflict.  But as Revelation tells us, not all will.  And those that do not will perish.

Enjoy your winning "battles" while you can, heathen, because you WILL lose the war.
