    SYRIA: Christians in Syria concerned about present situation

    Christians in Syria concerned about present situation


    "As Christians in Syria, we have been living in peace for a long period of time. The evangelical church including other Christian denominations have been practicing their faith under the current government without any threats or danger. The Christian community has been blessed and protected in the majority Muslim nation of Syria under the current secular regime. It has been our prayer and thanksgiving for the past years where we were able to flourish and live in prosperity and peace with our neighbours and other religious sects.


    Since the situation in the Middle East erupted, many small and other self interest groups have been exploiting the situation to achieve their agenda in the region. For example, many extremist foreign fighters have travelled to Iraq and killed innocent Iraqis, Shiites, Sunnis and Christians. These same extremist groups have turned their Jihad to neighbour Syria, exploiting the situation to establish their Islamic Emirate. These groups have been living and operating in Syria during the past three months. They have been entering houses and threatening many Christians and minority groups. They even entered government buildings and murdered men and women for no reason other than working in a government building.


    Many of the "peaceful" demonstrations have been shouting, "Christians, your men belong to our sword and your women belong to our pleasure." Other extremist Muslim clerks, who belong to the opposition overseas, are calling the Muslim in Syria to shed the blood of more than one million Christians and Allawits in Syria to make up for the past years where the Christians and other minorities were living in peace.


    Other peaceful Muslims in the region are suggesting that Christian in Syria should run away to Lebanon or other nations; however, it is the desire of the Christians to remain living in Syria and never leave their home nation.


    We want the people to know that Christians in Syria do exist and we do not want what happened in Iraq to the Christians to happen in Syria to the Christian community. This is not a war for freedom, this is not a war for democracy, it is a sectarian war and if people do not realize what is happening, it will be too late for many minorities group, including the Christian community. Please pray for the Christians in Syria."

    Please pray:


    1. That the outside forces working to turn Syria into an extremist Islamic nation will be pushed back and not succeed in their quest.


    2. For the protection of Christians from those who wish to destroy, abuse and kill them.


    3. That the Christians will have courage as they stand firm and resist fear and the calls to flee their homeland.


    With many thanks for your prayers

    Re: SYRIA: Christians in Syria concerned about present situation

    I have prayed as requested above, but I am also hoping that some will find safety and a better life outside of Syrai -wherever YHWH knows is best - for as Scriptures say, "When you are persecuted in one town [and this case it could be all the towns of Syria], flee to another."
    Per Hebrew 13:3 please "Remember those in prison": http://bibleforums.org/forumdisplay....secuted-Church

    Acts 21 Now they have been informed about you that you continually teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn back from and forsake Moses...Therefore do just what we tell you....thus everybody will know that there is no truth in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself walk in observance of the Law of Moses.
