Islamic Freedom Lovers

If there is any doubt about what the change in Egypt means, this article about a mob of nearly four thousand Muslims attacking Coptic Christian homes and Churches should be revealing. Don't expect to hear this story in the mainstream media because it doesn't fit with the pervasive worldview that radical Islam has nothing to do with the unrest in the Mideast. No one in the media wants to admit that there is a spiritual component to what is going on there.

I've observed a pattern, when people get a little taste of political power, their true nature becomes manifest. That is why the Muslims in Egypt feel free to now attack Christians. Most people just don't want to face the fact that Islam is the doctrine of demons Satan will use to subjugate the world under his representative. One thing I look forward to when the Lord returns is an end of political correctness; only the truth will be tolerated.

The Egyptian mobs seeking to rid themselves of Christians is a mild foreshadowing of what it will be like for followers of Jesus during the Tribulation. Jesus said His followers can expect persecution... "If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you" (John 15:20, NKJ). Christians have always experienced some degree of persecution but it will be hell on earth when Satan and his minions are given free-reign during the time following the rapture of the Church.

I wouldn't want to put off following Jesus until the rapture occurred which some think they need to prove that the Bible is true. Besides the severe persecution, there will be a "strong delusion" that will cause people to believe the rapture to be something other than what it really is (2 Thessalonians 2:11). It will be a lot harder to be a follower of Jesus after the rapture than it is now.

The spirit of Antichrist is rapidly growing in the world; now is not the time to equivocate about Jesus Christ.
