The news from Israel is troubling. Grief and mourning on both sides. Wars and rumors of wars. An unprovoked attack by militant extremist in the Ukraine has caused the death of almost three hundred people. How many were believers… how many were not? Diseased illegal children are flooding into America in record numbers while BHO promises members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that he will be as “generous and broad” as he can to “stop the deportation of ‘their’ people each and every day.”  ISIS issues a statement in Iraq's Nineveh province calling for a meeting with Christian leaders to give them the choice between converting to Islam or pay a dhimmi –- a tax imposed on non-Muslims. If Christians rejected both options, the only choice left is “the use of the sword”…. Islam welcomed in the churches “chrislam”- abortion on demand, numbers of homosexual weddings and homosexual clergy on the increase in the name of tolerance and diversification. Governments determined to destroy Judeo-Christianity, encouraging Christians to embrace the differences ‘within the body’...

Where is the outcry from Christians around the world? Where are the pastors and congregational leaders? Where are the calls for prayer and fasting by those who call themselves ‘christians’?

Where is His church and why is she silent?

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Martin Niemöller


  1. Good post Ali. Why aren't the men in the pulpits encouraging us to look up? Or to be much in prayer because of the shortness of time? Or to warn the lost of impending judgment?
    Perhaps there is no outcry because there are so few true Christians. Or it could be that so many are in such an apathetic state, they are oblivious to what's happening. Even worse, many are so caught up in worldliness; chasing after money, things, careers, etc.
    The best thing that could happen is for America to be brought low, for prosperity to be taken away. Christ is not truly precious until He is ALL we have...

  2. Ali,

    I watched this video and think you will be very interested in what this man has to say, it will send shivers down your spine -

  3. Thanks for the link.

    We live in difficult days, and they will continue to grow more difficult and dark day by day. The church is weak, disengaged and dysfunctual not knowing or seemingly caring that apart from God, we can do nothing.

  4. The problem is that most Christians, like the rest of the world, suffer from apathy. And of course the main stream media doesn't even report the truth on any of these issues.

  5. Could not agree with you more. Our left leaning liberal media controlled by the powers that satan uses to create this darkness.

    Judgement begins in the house of God so from all we see within the church as a whole, it has begun.
