This is just a beautiful song and JD brought up what the Christians are facing in the ME – thought I would post this.
It’s by Audrey Assad – you can check out her website for the full story but she wrote this song after she saw the Christians beheaded on the beach. She watched them praying and wondered what her prayer would be in that situation.August 30, 2016 at 3:01 pm #109627
Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father's children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and to him shall the gathering of the people be. Gen 49

Yes, what would we pray in their shoes.
Have you ever wondered why the enemy of our souls encourages beheadings of Christians? I had never thought of this question before but today ran across an article explaining why the enemy focuses on beheadings. Who is the head of a Christian? Who is he in relationship with? Satan is in an angry rage because he knows his time is short and his destiny. The Christian has what he wants and because of his rebellion can never have. Relationship with God where God is the head of the Christian. So beheadings are symbolic of destroying this relationship. Separating the Christian from God as his head.
Satan is a defeated foe. He can’t and won’t win but for the Trib he chooses this message to send. Why the focus on beheadings. Yes, it is fearful and gruesome; frightening but knowing our Savior He will make this beautiful in His time. For the Christian, it will become beautiful. God won’t leave him in this state. His soul is right with the Lord. He will be blessed in the end. But it serves as a scary control mechanism in the meantime.
Reading this it made sense.. why the beheadings. The symbolism of intent.
The eyes of the Lord range throughout the entire earth, to strengthen those whose heart is true to him.August 30, 2016 at 6:20 pm #109640
Beautiful song. Abba, in Your mercy, would You please endow Your children with Your strength and Your courage to empower us to stand faithful and firm until the end, come what may. We cannot do it without You at work in us through the power of Your Spirit in the Name of Your Son. We love You Lord, but it seems so often, at least in my life, with such an imperfect love. Have mercy on Your children, Abba. In wrath, remember mercy. Amen.
John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."August 31, 2016 at 11:15 am #109683
How can we fathom what our Lord ‘permits’ ~ the sheer horror of satan’s rebellion is too overwhelming at times like these ~~ still, we KNOW the Head of the Church is Sovereign and in control ~~ Jesus promises His Grace is powerful to stay the faith of His Bride ~~ the devil increasingly is enraged, his madness is exactly what Jesus said he is; a murderer out to destroy and kill ~
oh ~ The true Bride of Christ is in the Hand of Almighty God and no creature can remove her from the Creator and Beloved Groom holding His Bride in waiting, His prized possession ~ it’s inconceivable all the wicked schemes of the enemy these days ~~ Jesus our Lord is ready to call HOME His Bride ~~as we witness the ‘false’ church that has no Light, God knows His own little lights intimately . our Father shall lose none ~ ~through the power of Christ, He owns all Authority both on earth and in Heaven ~~ His Majestic, Splendid and amazing Grace will never let us leave His ‘fold’ ~~
