Freedom?

This morning Margie called me to tell me of a situation I needed to pray over. This young husband and wife want to become Christian. They have been considering it for a while and finally have started to attend a Bhutanese church, but they have been getting resistance from her family. The wife was with the Christians practicing a Nepali dance for some up coming event and the father of the lady called and told the Pastor if he did not send his daughter home he would call the police and say he kidnapped her. They have been experiencing persecution here in a America... simply because they want to believe and follow Yahew. My heart is heavy!

My true feelings on all of the persecution is I AM SICK OF IT!

The Hindu father, I believe he is scared... maybe scared of the unknown. Scared to lose his daughter and not knowing anything about what her heart is longing for. The father hasn't had the opportunity to feel what his daughter is feeling. So, I pray for her and her family. I pray for the Lord to penetrate the Father's heart with the two-edged sword. And I pray for this family to press on and to seek what they feel so strongly... and that Yahweh will reveal himself to them.

I am done hearing about the whole Duck Dynasty issue as well. You wanna know why? Because this is going to happen. As the days become closer to the time of Christ's return, we will be persecuted! Yes, even us American's, who think we are to worthy to be questioned or persecuted over our freedom of speech and our beliefs. The day is going to come where we too will have to fight and stand up for our Savior and what he has done for us. We as believers here in the U.S. have lost what it really means to be a Christian. It doesn't mean go to church when you feel like it, or only go when there is a good Pastor preaching... We have lost the desire to get on our knees and cry out in a loud moan, sobbing, and seeking our Creator. We have lost it! It is not the end of the world that Duck Dynasty has lost their air time. What we need to focus our time and effort on is seeking our Lord, because the time is getting near where we to will be fighting for what we want to say and how we want to worship. Do I agree with what Phil said? Yes, but that is not the point... the point is now to see and feel the groaning and contractions of the world as it becomes closer to when Christ will return.

This blog post may seem to be going all over the place (and maybe it is)... But, here is a sweet Hindu family in America seeing, hearing, and believing in the Messiah and they are being restricted. Then here we are as Americans turning our backs against the Truth that has been here since the beginning of time... its right at our finger tips and we give up. We have little faith, because we can't see it, we can't feel it... so it must not be real. I think my heart aches more for Americans than for my Hindu friend seeking after the Lord.
