A prayer for our Iraqi brothers - and all who must endure suffering for the name of Christ:<br>"Sovereign Lord, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them, 25 who through the mouth of our father David, your servant, said by the Holy Spirit,<br> <br><br> â€œ â€˜Why did the Gentiles rage,<br> <br>and the peoples plot in vain?<br> <br>26 The kings of the earth set themselves,<br> <br>and the rulers were gathered together,<br> <br>against the Lord and against his Anointedâ€™ â€”<br> <br><br>27 for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, 28 to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place. 29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, 30 while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus."<br>Acts 4:24-30 (ESV)<br>And, amen on the come quickly, Lord.
It's not what they should have done but what should we now do? Certainly not turn them into lapsi like the Novatians did to the early Christians were too afraid to choose martyrdom. <br><br>We should pray for them. We should figure out how we can help them. <br>What a mess. Who knows what any of us might do in their situation.
They did what they should do acccording to the Bible in the Epistle of Paul The nApostle to the Romans Chapter 12 Verse 19 it says: Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselfs , but rather give placeunto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. These are the last days and soon the word of life (Bible) say in the book of Revelation chapter 6 verse 10 (please read it) also read Deut. 32:43 GOD Bless you.
