I think i get what your sayin now, sorry....please make a quote next time if possible....anyways...i will never stop beign an open christian my friend....we cannot deny Christ or he will rightfully deny us before the father....we should proclaim the name of Jesus ....but i do see what you are saying to a point....we should not welcome it...like we should perhaps not stick a massive billboard on our yard with the ten commandments maybe...that would be asking for trouble......kind of defeat the purpose of taking the church UNDERGROUND as thats what we will have to do when all this kicks off.........but if it came to it and i was asked if i was Christian, then i would most definately tell them..."too right i am and i will NEVER stop being one either".

Well, it sounds like someone is saying we, as Christians, should hide our faith so the government doesn't come to get us.

Then another friend mentions that, essensially, who cares if the government gets you since God is more likely to catch you in the act (all knowing, seeing, all that stuff). God, through Christ, gave us the Great Commission of spreading our faith.



I'm not afraid to let you know
I want this light in me to show
I'm not ashamed to speak the name
Of Jesus Christ


This is our Great Commission. Someone told you to lead you to Christ, now you need to tell others. You need to be that light that someone was for you at some point in time. surfnaked notes that if we shut up, we'll stop being harassed (I know in the past I've used the word persecuted, but what Christians encounter in America is nowhere near Persecution). Yet, Christ told us that they persecuted him (torture, insult, hung Him from a tree, wrote a bunch of lies about Him in the DaVinvi Code, etc.) and would do so us since the servents are not greater than the master. djohnsto77's got the right idea, to hide our faith is to curse it. That ain't for me, I pray that, if there are Guillotines, that I be one of the first taken to them, because it would mean I'm making a difference for Christ.

Rock, rock on.

Sadly, this does happen in America. Michael W. Smith wrote a song commemorating one of the two little girls at Columbine, Cassie Bernall. Either Dylan or Eric (don't remember which) put a gun to her head and asked her if she believed in God. She said yes, he pulled the trigger.

To quote Smitty, "What would you say?"

Here are someone's words who say it far better than I while analyzing Michael W. Smith's song, "This Is Your Time"

In light of that jungle jack...i wanan post a prayer that i got on my site....a teacher said at school assembly.....but sadly apologised for saying it as it wasnt 'popular' and therefore he joined the popularity team and became lukewarm. The following prayer sums modern society up to a T.....persecution is already here...just not as hardcore as it wants to be...but its coming...be sure its coming;

The below poem is a classic example on how the EVIL is prevailing as in the quote above, and how Christian Morals are being OUTLAWED rapidly as we approach the Final Storm: The FINAL INQUISITION.......

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule.

For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.

If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.

And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.

The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.

In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the state.

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.

They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the "unwed daddy,'' our Senior King.

It's "inappropriate'' to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such "judgments'' do not belong.

We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.

But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.

So, Lord Jesus, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot, my soul please take!

Amen.

I just came across an incredibly logicall article....it explains why most men are not real christians anymore and why many men like to avoid church because of its namby pamby 'mr nice guy-no backbone-' persona and not enough of what God really designed males for....war and rescuing those who are oppressed. Iw dawned on me when i just read the article...that this is indeed true and althouhg i knew it all along, this article made me realise it much more clearly that Men arent being REAL men as the Bible wishes.here it is;

Persecution is coming. It's our burden as Christans. Yet, in America the persecution has been lacking. Granted, it is the only nation on the face of the planet (that I know of) that started as the first Christian nation established as a Christian nation. That could explain why it has been such a coast ride for us to date. However, there is a concerted effort to take this country by the Enemy. And they were winning because we were silent little lambs amidst the pain, but that's no longer good enough. So we screamed out with a vengance that had the secular world reeling, and they still are. There are all kinds of words used for us now, since the secular world started attacking America. We're neo-cons, the religious right, idiots, etc. Look to the past of prejudice. It starts with a special title for the group about to be persecuted. Happened with the Indians, blacks, and jews at various points in history, and it will happen to Christians. The only difference between us and those groups is we already know who wins. Even if we don't live through it in our physical bodies, we don't have much to fear. God beats Satan. Religion beats secularism. Jesus Christ beats Michael Newdow.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light, but do not resort to the secular means of attack. We are Christians. Much like America, we fight with our own rules which are above those of other people. Or, at least, they should. We don't attack the individual, we attack the concept. Remember, beloved, for the world to know the truth, there could be no greater proof than to live Christ's life. More converts have been won over by people crying out "Forgive them" as they die, by far, than people who have been won over to the Truth by someone shouting, "Jesus will have vengance, see you in Hell!" Turn the other cheek, and take the persecution as a sign that you're doing the job Christ wanted you to do. He carried and was nailed to a cross. We have to deal with people calling us stupid and naive because we disagree with what they say. We have a ways to go before guillotines come to the US, but we're on the right path.

i just know what its like to be in very dangerous situations and how ive seen people do nothing....it was all left upto me


How do you know what type of situations people on this board have been through and how they have responded? It’s pretty arrogant to say that, you have no idea what any of us have done to protect people in the past. Are you the type of guy that would call a combat medic a coward because he would not carry a gun into battle, but faced the same risk and danger to help his fellow men?

Then there is the fact that this situation is entirely different then many other situations. This is not a criminal/rapist/murderer breaking into your house, this is something that is preordained by God, and it is a battle of faith and between faiths. As in who is your God, this world and worldly life (what you so desperately want to protect), or God. Regardless of what the Mark of the Beast may be, this is what it represents, choosing this world over a direct order from God, to protect your ability to maintain a worldly lifestyle. That is why it hits people financially (shall not buy or sell), right in the hardest thing for most here to give up, their comfy worldly lifestyle…



Originally By soldier_of_the_lord
Do not tell me Christians should not be fighting...there is not an ounce of evidence anywhere in the bible...but rather the opposite


Actually you are EXTREAMLY wrong here. There is NO evidence at all of Christians ever killing in the Bible, now the Jews are a different story. As a matter of fact when Jesus was being lead away from the Garden to be tortured to death and Peter struck the soldier with the sword, what was Christ’s response to that?
I believe that he not only scolded peter, but also healed the soldier.

When the Christians were being taken to Rome to be eaten alive and tortured to death, did they put up a fight?
No.

What happened to turn the other cheek?

Has it ever dawned on you that maybe God shows his power in the obedience of his people even through torture and death?

If you remember correctly the Centurions where teasing Christ on the Cross about coming down and showing his power. He could have, he could have destroyed them all, and it must have been tempting, but it was not the will of God. If he had given into this temptation, then none of us would have been saved through his death.

There is also some difference here between several of the scenarios that you put out. I have no problem with putting myself in harms way to protect someone, but in the end time scenario, it is like Christ on the cross, it is something that has to be done the way that God wants it done. There is no changing it, no matter how much you fight it, because it is predestined. You think that by putting up a resistance you are going to change Gods outcome in the situation. You are only fooling yourself if you believe this. A foolish hope of someone that IS afraid to die, a hope that your desire to live and fight will overpower Gods will.


One more thing for you to chew on. Has it ever dawned on you that right now we are at war because of the actions of a few violent religious zealots?
Ninety-nine percent of the Christians out there are not violently radical, but the groups like you that show your type of attitude are EXACTLY what they could use to outlaw ALL religions they deem radical or dangerous. Therefore, you could actually be handing them the ammo to do to the Christians the very thing that you so greatly fear?

Turn the other cheek is so misunderstood...it means NOTHNG to do with letting someone beat the living daylights out of you and do nothing to defend yourselves...look into old customs....a slap on the right cheek b the BACK OF THE LEFT hand was an insult like spitting infront of someones walkway.....letting them know you dont approve of them.....turn th other cheek simply means take insults ...not ASSAULTS.....Jesus didnt make our lives impractical....if we went with the logic you are using then when you are married or if you are already...or even girlfriend...you tell me that if your girl was being beat and raped by a man or 2 men, you would do nothing and 'turn the other cheek'?....thats hardly christian and i am sure you can see why the logic you are using is flawed....but this is understandable that you believe such things as the pacifist lie has been spread so deeply into the root of christianity that its hard to look into things for ourselves and not simply take the JESUIT pastors (or jesuit influenced) word for it. They want NO RESISTANCE so they can torture us for their own sicko pleasures with ease. Think about it....wouldnt this be a good strategy to spread a lie about christ being pacifist so that a number of years down the road, when the final inquisition comes, they can take us to the death camps to be tortured and finally executed with no effort....they are laughing at you my friend.....they are mad at me because i know the truth....ive been threatened by a man claiming to be military intelligence for this very reason...he told me to keep my mouth shut or "something bad could happen". I touched a nerve..i got the right line....Come on...wake up and be a real man...the men the bible is made of......you ever see them turning the other cheek whilst their citizens are raped and countries invaded by foreign forces...ever see jesus tell us to throw away all weapons as they are evil or to never defend ourselves? no...because its not practical and God knows it.....and you and everyone else knows it deep down....just sift thru the false info you have been fed and you will see....seek the common sense logic that God gave you....you will see.

This Catholic website has modern-day prophecies and information about "safe havens, etc.

And John Leary has a website listing numerous messages he has received purportedly from Jesus and Mary, which mention the end times and advisements for preparations for tribulation times:

I will be the first to admit, pardon the language (I never saw in the Bible where it said "thou shalt not say '#'"
), if you # with my family, you pay. My family is the closest thing I hold on to in this world. Yet, I know that's imperfect. Do you mean to tell me, soldier, that you don't have confidence that God will not exact vengance on those who deserve it?

Jesus did NOT mean only turn the other cheek to insults. How often did He call on His father to wreak vengance on the Romans when he was nailed to that tree? How often did he call on His Father to wreak vengance as he was being thrashed by the cat o' nine tails? Never. Never, never, never. We need to learn from that. I know I'm not perfect, and never will be. I have a protective instinct in me that violates that which I believe, but you come in here and mess with any of my family, and I will end you. And you know what? That statement proves I have a long ways to go on my spiritual journey. I'm getting pissed just thinking about it, but I shouldn't be. Soldier, we worship an all powerful God who can do whatever He wishes. To think that we need to take justice into our own hands because God doesn't understand or react quickly enough...That's not holyness, that's pride...And we all know what pride is...

I'm currently reading the 'Left Behind' series of books. In the eighth in the series they have a 'Loyalty enforcement facilitator' which stands beside the booths where the Mark of the Beast is applied. This is a guillotine and is used for intimidation.

You been deceive bro cuz i can see your common sense attitude coming out (apart from your death threat).....thin kwith your own mind...not others...why jump onthe bandwagon just to feel safe....stand on your own 2 feet brother and be a man. Stop taking the Jesuit infiltrated lie of pacifism...if you let others get tortured and murdered in the near future...i pray God will punish you severely....you will make it to heaven but you will receive less of a reward that you could have had by excersising your CHRISTIAN WALK AND actually did something real for a brother in peril....not simply pray....prayer alone is for the weak and lazy....prayer andACTION is for the TRUE soldier of God. God be with you

Solider of the Lord,read Genesis and only a few pages in you will come across the FIRST murderer Caine,now even God marked Caine so that nobody will kill him in revenge,and if they did they would receive a curse much greater than Caine received for killing Abel,that was OT let alone NT as Christ as our example.

The sword of Christ is not a metal knife,it is his word that is the sword.so listen to Defcon5 and Saint For God,pray with the bible to God for understanding on these issues,so you will be a true warrior for Christ.Until then you will be playing into their (NWO)hands.

Christ said the greatest thing anyone could do was to die for someone else,NOT kill for someone else,he was saying to take the place for someone else.It has nothing to do with being gutless,it is strength and bravery and Love to take punishment ridicule slander etc for anyone else even if they dont deserve it,that was Christs example.

GPS the mark of cain is for a certain reason...not all fields ....i gave a ton of scriptures where God says its ok to kill for self defence or to defend others.....look up above or maybe its on page 2....either way look up the scriptures...also the old t DOES apply ...matthew 5:17 jesus says "i DID NOT COME to TAKE AWAY THE LAW or the prophets but to fulfill"........even in Acts and Hebrews the NEW TESTAMENT CHRISTIANS CONDONE the activities of the OLD T WARRIORS...clearly telling us they did nothing wrong and even paul himself tells us certain sinners should be executed...homosexuals etc...Romans 1: 32 Acts

Hebrews 11: 30-34

Obviously blessing and justifying the WARRIORS of old in how they had God on their side and were ALWAYS victorious in BATTLE....who said the New Testament NEVER mentions violence? This is one clear scripture that does

Acts 7: 22-25

This repeats the account which happened in the Old Testament as referenced earlier above. It is clearly justifying the killing Moses did as an act of 'avenging the oppressed'

Look up the other scriptures too ....be a man of the Bible...we christians today are acting just like WOMEN...we are MEN.

Again, you miss the point, did you not even read my post. I am getting quite tired and perhaps I did not state my case clearly. The two situations you are talking about are entirely different.

One is fighting a band of criminals over a crime, the second is being a criminal yourself that is standing up to an unjust government over an issue of faith.

By the way how do you figure that any of us deny that this is going to happen, I have not seen a single person here dispute that it is prophesied. So stop with the attempts to scare people into reading your site, and with the nonsense that you have some special insight into the end times. Everyone that is a Christian sees what is coming down the pike. The ones that I worry about are the ones that believe in this Jesuit inspired wishful thinking that they are going to be whisked away before anything bad happens to them.

...Come on...wake up and be a real man...


Oh, so your measure of a REAL man is based on their level of violence. You tell me which is more of a real man, the one that is willing to be tortured to death for his beliefs, who understands Gods logic behind the end times, and that accepts God’s will?

Or the guy cringing in some hole somewhere, with 7 years of MRE’s and ammo, because he’s scared that someone might put the thumbscrews to him?

People on this site are generally pretty sharp, and I am sure that most have picked up, just by skimming your sight that it sells fear, it plays on fear, and it comes through clearly because it is written by someone that is afraid.

Maybe rather then being worried about what is going to happen to the rest of the Christians out there, you should be worried about why you’re afraid to meet your maker?

Something deep in your subconscious mind knows this is true, because you’re afraid to face physical pain, you’re afraid to lose your worldly goods, family, or life.

If this were not true, you would realize there is no fighting it and no escaping it, the end is coming, and you and your shotgun ain’t gonna make a dent in its front fender as it approaches.

Here is the final answer to this whole philosophy of yours and why it is wrong, in a nut shell:



Mark 8:34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life will lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.
