All Christians 'targets,' Iraqi militant group says

CNN Reports:

All Christians in the Middle East are now "legitimate targets," al Qaeda in Iraq announced Wednesday, as the group's deadline for Egypt's Coptic church to release alleged Muslim female prisoners expired.

An audio message released Monday gave the church 48 hours to disclose the status of Muslim women it said are imprisoned in Coptic churches in Egypt.

The message purportedly came from the Islamic State of Iraq, which claimed responsibility for an attack on a Baghdad church Sunday that killed 58 people and wounded 75. The umbrella group includes a number of Sunni extremist organizations and has ties to al Qaeda in Iraq.
The group said the women's alleged plight was the reason it stormed the church.

Wednesday, the group released a new message saying, "The Ministry of War of Islamic State of Iraq declares that all the centers, organizations and bodies of Christian leaders and followers have become legitimate targets by the Mujahedeens, wherever our hands will reach them."

I'm praying for my brothers and sisters-in-Christ in Iraq. I hope Jesus Christ keeps them and protects them. I also pray that He emboldens them so preach the gospel and that they don't be afraid.

Greetings From Berlin, Germany,

The open call from the islamist to kill christians in egypt wherever they find them is bible prophecy forfilling. I know the copts have being persecuted for a long time, but it has gotten worse and worse and now every muslim is called to kill them wherever they can reach them. That means the last day might come sooner than we think, because God will resuce the persecuted christians in egypt before they are all killed, lets check the bible:
Isaiah 20:20 "And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them."
So, now lets do the math, muslime have mangaged to kill basically all the christians in turkey, there are 0.1% christians in turkey today, 100 years ago there were about 35-40% christians there, that means when the copts are getting killed more and more, very soon they will cease to exist there, some will escape, lots will die, BUT as it says in Isaiah the lord will deliver them, that means that Jesus comes back before the christians in egypt are gone, that leaves us with a very narrow time window.
I would like to hear your opinion on that, am I totally wrong here, or does it make sense what I say? Pls let me know.

God bless you

Magdalene Ashraf, a Pakistani Christian trainee nurse, was raped by several Muslim men at the Jinnah Post - Graduate Medical Centre, Karachi, in July. After her ordeal, a doctor threw her out of a fourth - floor window. Please pray that she will recover from her severe physical injuries as well as from the trauma of the incident, and that those involved will be brought to justice.

'Israel may lease east Jerusalem from a Palestinian State'

Arab newspaper reports that US, Israel are discussing future borders; one option is leasing land from Palestinians for up to 99 years.
29 October 2010 The US is negotiating the future borders of the Palestinian state with Israel,
according to a report released by Arab newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat on Friday.
One option is reportedly that Israel would lease land in east Jerusalem from the Palestinian state for 40-99 years.
Palestinian sources confirmed to the paper that the US and Israel are discussing borders and
settlements, but PA President Mahmoud Abbas does not yet know the details.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's office refused to confirm or deny the reports, and State Department sources told the paper that Israel and the US are discussing matters "as a part of
the close relations between the two countries."
Asharq Al-Awsat also reported that Israel and the Palestinians discussed the option of leasing
land in talks at Taba in 2001, but they discussed leasing for 6-9 years, and not 99.


Dan.9:27And he [Anti-Christ]shall confirm the covenant with many for one week [7yrs]: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Yeshua/Jesus said: Matt.24:15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)...

Luke 21:28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

1 Thess.4:16For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,..

1 Cor.15:51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. 52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the trump of God...

This is just so atrocious, detestable, abhorrent, dreadful, hideous, ghastly, foul, horrible, nasty, and evil.

But then i remember, its all in good Islam.

Please pray for our brothers and sisters.

The kingdom of Christ is a spiritual kingdom.
No bloodshed changes it.
No rage cows it.
No Muslim righteousness will ever destroy it.
That's not empty pride.
That's the simple truth.
In times of martyrdom, Christianity expands. The bravery of its adherents is its best recommendation.
