The Dangerous Act
of a Baptism
Nine major Islamic extremist groups currently persecuting Christians around the world.We MUST learn how to pray more specifically for persecuted Christians facing Islamic extremists.
When Nazeera noticed the positive change in her husband after he became a Christian, she, too, placed her faith in Christ. But since they lived in the Arabian Peninsula, they had to keep their new faith quiet. After studying the biblical teaching on baptism, Nazeera and her husband decided it was time to be baptized.
Somehow, the photos of Nazeera’s baptism made it into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood an Islamic "extremist" group that is becoming more mainstream and was founded in Egypt. The group routinely targets Egyptian Christians who get in the way of their goal of Islamic world domination. Through active cell groups in many Muslim nations, they have exported their terror against Christians to other parts of the Muslim world, including the Arabian Peninsula.
Despite the Muslim Brotherhood’s growing influence in the Muslim world, Christians continue to advance the gospel. Christians face terrible persecution at the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood . So what can we do in a world at the least gives lip service concerning the injustice or at the most turns a blind eye to this persecution? Prayer. It is our specific way to combat this horrible fact as CHRISTIANS FACING ISLAMIC "EXTREMISTS" ( Hindu Extremist or Socialist States for that matter ).
Prayer is our weapon. We are required to pray for one another. God chooses to move in and through our prayers. If we stand by and don't at least pray, when we face Christ Jesus at the Bema Seat judgement will He be pleased with our rebelliousness concerning this matter, if we allow this to continue without a broken and deeply grieved heart that is praying to Him to move on their behalf. He doesn't need our prayers but He desires to hear from us about this matter, it shows unity, it show love, it shows God's heart manifesting in us. God allows this as seen in His permissible will but it is not His perfect will. I submit that His perfect will is to stand in the gap for our brothers and sister who suffer for Christ's sake. We fight over the tits and tittles of Scripture here or how to be more acceptable to a culture that doesn't care one iota about Christ here but there is little conversation concerning the Persecuted Church. So why are we any different then Pharisees of old?. So what do we do with the I got mine and the persecuted church doesn't effect me attitude here? Pray !!!!!
