It is with great sadness that we are witnessing terror attacks, sexual assaults of women and children, and violence against innocent people in Europe. People who came as refugees and received a warm and generous welcome seem to hate these Christian nations and act not with gratefulness but with the demeanour of new bosses. Christianity is being replaced by tolerance of the intolerable. Child marriages and honour killings are being excused with cultural differences. The European people are confused. Why aren’t their leaders standing up for them and protecting them like they are supposed to? When a nation’s leaders deny the Lord Jesus in order to appease business partners and other agendas, it will have spiritual repercussions. When Christians don’t deny themselves anymore for the sake of the cross, they might lose their very soul.
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
Are Christians still able to deny themselves, their desire to be popular, to blend in, to nto be criticized, to be seen as modern, tolerant? Are they ashamed of the gospel, the fundamental truth, are they ashamed to conserve the faith and stand up for ancient truth?
Worldwide Christians have flirted with tolerance of evil just to avoid being called conservative or even right leaning.
Germany is called as a strong bulwark of Christianity. The German church is called to be bold and outspoken. As Christians have dropped their shields (Ephesians 6) in order to tolerate anything that was thrown at them, being afraid of labels, trying to virtue signal, they have become like powerless salt, ready to be trampled underfoot.
While Muslim nations forbid Christmas celebrations, German officials have congratulated Muslim immigrants to their religious holidays and then proceeded to repurpose Christmas markets as oriental bazaars and winter markets. Instead of teaching immigrants about Christianity and the values that made the European countries so attractive to migrants in the first place, German kids had to endure compulsory visits to mosques this year. There was very little resistance from churches, in fact leaders of state financed churches rose up to claim Allah and the God of the bible are the same. Christian refugees who often flee serious persecution in Muslim nations are being assaulted in Germany, the country they came to for safety. By Muslims, who are treated with utter cultural sensibility.
But there are many strong believers in Germany. Intercede for them to rise up, unashamed. There are pastors who are warning against Islamisation and face severe disciplinary actions against them.
The German people will drastically change from their passive stance to an aggressive stance. There will be much conflict in Germany in the coming days.
Pray that Christians take up their calling and become a beacon of light once more.
The nations surrounding Germany are waiting for the German people to speak up; they There is a rejoicing coming as the stance is taken against Islam and the slogan that Islam is part of Germany will be removed from over the nation.
God wants to remove shame and guilt from this nation and reveal His plan for them. Ministers from other countries will be invited to churches, they will bring this message to churches, and healing will come.
Please pray for German Christians to not operate from a place of appeasement but to stand boldly for biblical truth.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. Romans 1:16
But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven. Matthew 10:33
