A century ago the Brits found 200,000 Jews in Baghdad. Today there are five remaining. Christians born and raised in Iraq are near extinction. This is the land where Yahweh raised up and chastened kings day back in the 7th BC. This the land where one king decreed to establish a protected status for Judaism.
Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.Daniel 3:29
Today we see a concerted effort to dull the effect of faith groups. Government support of spiritual life is all lip service. Government defence of spiritual values is required but denied so that the phony world government can make its claim over all souls.
Let’s pray for disappearing believers. Let us pray for courage for Jews, Christians and all religious minorities. Let us pray too for religious majorities in Canada and the United States whose voice and messsge has been coopted by cheap political slogans and nationalist ideology. Pray for peace to dominate government action.
