We say here in America that we will not see tribulation as Christians. I wish someone would tell that to the Christians in the Middle East right now who are being beheaded and run out of their homes by this antichrist spirit ISIS.
It is time for us who are at ease in Zion to be praying for these people. I pray that they would be praying for us if it were happening here.
“Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar; and let them say, Have pity and spare Your people, O Lord, and give not Your heritage to reproach, that the [heathen] nations should rule over them or use a byword against them. Why should they say among the peoples, Where is their God?”
Then was the Lord jealous for His land and had pity on His people. Yes, the Lord answered and said to His people, Behold, I am sending you grain and juice [of the grape] and oil, and you shall be satisfied with them; and I will no more make you a reproach among the [heathen] nations. But I will remove far off from you the northern [destroyer’s] army and will drive it into a land barren and desolate, with its front toward the eastern [Dead] Sea and with its rear toward the western [Mediterranean] Sea.
And its stench shall come up [like that of a decaying mass of locusts, a symbol and forecast of the fate of the northern army in the final day of the Lord], and its foul odor shall come up, because [He has done great things [the Lord will have destroyed the invaders]!”Joel 2:17-20 (AMP).
