Christian Bishop In Egypt: Christians Are Currently Experiencing Their Worst Time In Recent Centuries, Many Now Unable To Buy Or Sell


If we believed that all of these things were only supposed to happen after the rapture of the Church, then it’s high time to rethink what we thought we knew …

Revelation 13:16-18, “… it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate [‘psēphizō’ – reckon] the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is χξς.”

CopticChristianPersecution

ACN News – “Christians in Egypt are currently experiencing their worst time in recent centuries. This statement was made by the Coptic Orthodox Bishop Stephanos of Beba and Elfashn to the international Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN). Christians are being violently killed under the eyes of the international media. Also, for the first time in many years, churches are being systematically burned and destroyed. The police are taking no action and nobody is punished for it. In the Egyptian media, ‘the facts are systematically covered up in order to keep the international media from reporting the truth and bringing pressure from outside,’ he complained. However, video films showing the massacre of demonstrators on 9 October were broadcast by the three television stations operated by the Coptic Church and have thus also found their way into the international media. This time the attacks on Copts ‘have been better documented’.

Problems are also experienced in day-to-day life because calls are often made in the media not to buy from Christian merchants or to sell anything to Christians. Businessmen are therefore faced with a struggle for economic survival. Christians are indirectly excluded from employment, for example by job advertisements specifying ‘a female employee with headscarf’. Attempts are being made ‘to drive the Christians out’.” Read more.

‘Bloody’: Christian Persecution is ‘Coursing Through Muslim-Majority Nations from One End of the Globe to the Other’ – “We hear so often about Muslims as victims of abuse in the West and combatants in the Arab Spring’s fight against tyranny. But, in fact, a wholly different kind of war is underway—an unrecognized battle costing thousands of lives. Christians are being killed in the Islamic world because of their religion. It is a rising genocide that ought to provoke global alarm… In recent years the violent oppression of Christian minorities has become the norm in Muslim-majority nations stretching from West Africa and the Middle East to South Asia and Oceania. In some countries it is governments and their agents that have burned churches and imprisoned parishioners. In others, rebel groups and vigilantes have taken matters into their own hands…” Read more.

Egypt: Rising Islamic Leader Declares ‘We Will Launch a Campaign of Islamic Conquest Throughout the World’, ‘Exterminate’ Christians Who Get In the Way of Sharia – “A rising leader in the radical Islamic movement in Egypt that has become a major political player since the demise of Hosni Mubarak’s regime says Christian churches may need to be blown up and Christians exterminated to allow the advance of Islamic law, or Shariah. The comments come from Sheik ‘Adel Shehato, a senior leader with the Egyptian Islamic Jihad terrorist group… The sheik, a senior jihadist leader, responded to a question about using violence against Christians, who make up a substantial minority in Egypt.” Read more.

Islamic Militants Calling Themselves ‘The Unknown Soldiers of The Hidden Imam’ Threaten to Hunt Down and Execute Christians Who Flee Iran – “Islamic militants with suspected ties to Iranian security forces have been terrorizing evangelical Christians with threats to ‘repent’ or die, it was reported Sunday. Christian Solidarity Worldwide has reported that 11 Iranian Christians who fled Iran in the wake of a government campaign against Christianity have received threats via email to ‘repent’ or face extrajudicial execution, from a group identifying itself as the ‘The Unknown Soldiers of The Hidden Imam.’ The threatening emails that were sent to each individual on Sept. 14 aspired to extend the arm of Iranian Islamic militancy beyond the borders of Iran by implying that, although the recipients have left Iran, they have not escaped the ‘acute eyes of the unknown soldiers.’” Read more.

‘It’s Just the Beginning’: The Unprecedented Persecution of Christians – “‘It’s just the beginning.’ That’s what one of the attackers said while bombing a church in eastern Kenya last week. Two people were killed and three others injured in the attack, which authorities believe was carried out by the al-Qaida-linked militant group al-Shabab. This month at least 65 people were killed in the city of Damaturu in northeastern Nigeria, when Islamist insurgents bombed churches, mosques and police stations. The Boko Haram militant sect claimed responsibility.” Read more.

    Hi AHF, thanks for the link. A good example of Islamic supremacy. We have a pretty good idea what Dan 7:25 refers when it speaks of the “king” desiring to change “laws” (ie, to institute the dictates of the Sharia), and although the Islamic world has its own calendar and would love to see the entire world based upon “Mecca Time” instead of Greenwich Mean Time, I wonder if thinking to change the “times” could also be referring to blatant historical revisionism, such as this:

    “Muslim religious figures regularly claim that Israel is plotting to destroy the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque to pave the way for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple, which the Muslims now insist never previously existed.”

    I think Joel R. pointed out a verse concerning the other persuasion. One verse (from AH, S. Al-B) claimed that in the ‘last day’ that the crescent persuasion would force non believers to bow before the name of the other god and that act would leave a mark on the forehead and hand from the dirty ground, which is a spiritual act, but a mark as well.

      Kind of like an “outward sign” of the spiritual condition. On the forehead it’s a “prayer scar” called the “zabiba.” But even those who do not show any visible mark on their forehead will still have the Mark of the Beast.

        Very true ICA. It is just one point I was drawing out and not an all encompassing definition limited to one thing. The invisible mark is the one to watch out for. Some fear the rice grain sized transmitters and ID’s, and while they are something to keep in mind, some people limit the M.O.B. to just that, and in doing so have a glazed over look when hearing other menaings like the one in Exodus. There is so much confusion and deception out there that we must be led by Him at all times. It is not of our own strength to withstand a day like this. He must add to us continually. He must add wisdom to us also – not what we interpret as His wisdom but truly His lead. It is mind blowing to even be having conversations like this. God bles you guys, JJJHS

    For what it’s worth, I read an interesting post today over on Joel’s Trumpet. Joel Richardson writes:

    A friend from Egypt, who lives in Cairo says that she is regularly greeted in Muslim places of business with ‘lā ilāha illà l-Lāh, Muḥammadun rasūlu l-Lāh’ (There is no God other than Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger). If she does not respond in kind, she is asked to leave.

    Yet another example where someone not considered part of “the multitude” of Mohammed being unable to buy or sell. Looks like those calls in the media not to buy from or sell to Christians is continuing to have its intended effect …

    Christianity did the dirty work for Islam by eliminating Paganism from Europe, America and Africa. Then Christianity sought spiritual whoredom with Islam during the Cold War, and during the Population Conference of Cairo in 1994. Even after 9-11 Bush allied with Islam against gay marriage. Chickens are now coming home to roost.

    It shouldn’t be too long before Muslims feel so emboldened, by killing without consequences, that they decide to take their unholy war to the American streets. If anyone thinks that it could never happen here, just look at what Obama has gotten away with. I doubt that this aberration will be confined only to the Middle East. Islam’s goal is global jihad, and global submission. Obama is doing everything in his power to weaken America and our allies, and to strengthen our enemies with our food, arms, and with our treasure.
    I believe that there are FEMA camps already waiting, and ready to receive those who refuse to comply with the new Islamic world order.
    Then there will always be the huge throngs of Muslims, roaming the streets in packs who will seize any opportunity to rape, kill, and destroy everything in their paths.
    These are the prophetic days spoken of in scripture. We know to expect this, everything written in the word of G-d must be fulfilled. So we must endure for just a little while, before the time of human rule comes to an end. Come Lord Jesus!
