Easter is upon us. Tomorrow is Good Friday when Christians celebrate and remember the death of Jesus Christ. He was in the grave for three days when He arose from the dead. He paid the ultimate price for all of us but what was it like? What did He go through? A medical perspective from a real doctor gives us a glimpse into what Jesus went through. He performed the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live. He did so lovingly and willingly. It makes you think that He loved us so much He suffered all that pain and agony for us. How can it not affect you?
You may enjoy this interview with Jim Caviezel who played Jesus in “The Passion of the Christ.” He also played John Reese in the recent TV hit, “Person of Interest.”
I haven’t always agreed with Piers Morgan especially on gun control but he’s been making quite a bit of sense on various issues lately. He’s right that this Christian genocide in the Middle East is not getting the media attention that it should. This is a huge story should be on reported extensively. As Tucker points out, where are the Christian leaders? They seem to be MIA on this issue. I say to them “Shame on you!” You’re letting these people down. Come out, Come out where ever you are and say something! These people are being slaughtered!
Holy Week started yesterday with Palm Sunday. It was the day in which Jesus Christ leading up to His death and resurrection entered the City of Jerusalem riding a donkey. Both adults and children a like waving palm branches praising Him shouting “Hosanna.” In the midst of Egyptian Christians were worshiping the day bombs were set off in two churches killing 44, leaving many injured leaving a lot chaos. ISIS taking responsibility for the horrible massacre.
Survivors of the twin suicide bombings that targeted Coptic churches in Egypt Sunday, leaving 44 dead and more than 100 injured, described a scene panic and uncertainty immediately after the blasts.
The Palm Sunday bombings targeted worshippers celebrating the start of Holy Week. The first blast occurred at St. George Church in Tanta, which left 27 dead. The second was at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Alexandria, which left 17 others dead, including three police officers.
What a horrendous thing to happen! We must pray for those Christians in the middle east. They are the ones who being targeted the most and persecuted. We must wake our leaders up to make sure these Christians are protected.
If we are to bring refugees to the western nations, it should be Christians. They are the ones in most danger.
Even though yesterday was a sad and horrific day, we should remember what they worshiping. They were worshiping Jesus Christ on His way to what would lead to His crucifixion and later His resurrection.
So as we remember our Lord Jesus Christ this week, we in the West need to thank God for our blessings. At ISIS has not targeted our churches yet. Let’s remember those Christians who died yesterday and pray for the protection loved ones. We should pray that this not happen again.
Persecution of Christians in the Middle East have been going on for a while now and it seems like no one cares, anyway no one in the main stream media or in the political class.
Christians are being murdered everyday. Girls and women are being used as sex slaves. They have done nothing wrong. They are being persecuted just for being Christian.
Ezra Levant was given a Bible that ISIS tried to destroy.
These Christians need our help. Stay tuned to what Ezra has planned.
In the mean time contact your MP and demand they allow some of these Christian refugees (real refugees) come to Canada and find some peace. Justin Trudeau refuses to help these Christians by allowing them to come to Canada. Instead he favors Muslims. Our politicians need to be pressured.
The Christians also need our prayers. If you are a praying person, please include them in your prayers. If you’re not a praying person, send them positive thoughts.
Let’s not forget these people. Let your friends and neighbors know what’s going on. They deserve our help just like anyone else.
