The headlines are grim from RELIGION TODAY. Christians are being persecuted around the world, and we hear very little about it. It is hard to bear. Yet, it is written. Persecution will continue until the last days, until the number of martyrs killed would be completed, according to His Plan. We are not yet destined to be free of such atrocity.
Still, I wonder. Why do we not hear about this in our usual media outlets? ABC, NBC, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, and all the rest, shame on you! You are so censored that even worthy news can no longer be broadcast. It actually embarrasses me. I can no longer watch this boatload of pap in America. It is a travesty and smacks of neglect, brainwashing, and elitism. Apostasy! Ugly!
Following are just a few of the headlines that are being kept from Americans today:
Christian Persecution Abounds Worldwide
Syria: Christians Increasingly Being Targeted, Driven From Homes
Church Attacks in Kenya More Reason for U.S. Focus on Growing Africa Terror Groups

The Fifth Seal, The Martyrs
9 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained;
10 and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “ How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”
11 And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also.
You can help. A very good place to start is to order a free copy of The Voice of the Martyrs for yourself and for your friends. Without going into too much detail about the torture and abuse that Christians endured under Communist Regime (and are still enduring today), Richard Wurmbrand, himself a prisoner, gives great insight into the workings and the successes of the Underground Church, not only in his homeland of Romania, but around the world. Please visit persecution.com to find more current news and to order your free copy of this enlightening message. It is a message of hope, one that may lead you to become a working member of the Underground Church. God works His Plan in the most incredible and wondrous of ways.
