ISIS Sends Out This Message To All Christians: ‘You Will Soon See An Ocean Of Blood For All The Nation Of The Cross’

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

ISIS today sent out a “Coming Soon” documentary titled “Warning: Message Signed In Blood Coming Soon To ‘Nation Of The Cross’”. It will be as ISIS promised, showing a wave of Christian blood which it has spilt. It is quite horrifying.

This morning I noticed some western speculation as to what ISIS had in mind for this sinister surprise which makes it obvious that from the beach wave mixed in blood as to another slaughter of Christians.



Some social media in the west speculated that this has something to do with Denmark, for example:

“Speculation as to ‘nation of the cross’ spans from Denmark (flag with cross) to ‘community of Christendom’. This announcement came after the Denmark attacks yesterday, so is not a reference to yesterday’s attacks.” (Weasel Zippers)

Westerners care more about Charlie Hebdo, a liberal who mocked Christ portraying the Virgin Mary giving birth to a pig. But all throughout the Middle East, the speculation is quite different, the beach and the waves shaped red, a reference to the blood was a clear message to the Copts in Egypt, a people who are rarely cared for and to Egypt it is about the slaughter of the 21 Christian Copts who were dragged to a beach front in Libya dressed in orange jump suits. The picture shows from ISIS magazine Dabiq, a group of Copts bowing on a beach, which can be linked to the image of the new promotional video issued by ISIS.





While ISIS did not issue any additional information about the nature of the video, and what can be contained, the phrase “Cross nation” referred to in the Tweet, raise doubts about the fate of 21 Coptic Egyptian kidnapped by a group “Soldiers Of The Caliph” loyal to ISIS in Libya, and who had been abducted from the city Sirte, Libya.

And while the families anticipate the fate of their 21 sons in suffering, I am reminded of Christ’s descending on earth. The two places in Scripture I find Jesus landing to rescue folks is in Zechariah 14 and Isaiah 19.

We all know that Zechariah 14 is about rescuing the Jews and converting them to Him, but Isaiah 19 should shock some folks and get us to ask, who and why is Christ coming for in Egypt:

“And it will be for a sign and for a witness to the LORD of Hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the LORD because of the oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them.” (Isaiah 19:20)

Here we have the “Mighty One” is the Messiah who fights on the day of the Lord to fight the oppressors. Here, see for yourself your brothers and sisters in Egypt suffering from the oppressors and calling for Jesus to come down and save them:

And where do we see such faith like this? Where do we see multitudes of Christians taking to the streets when there are 90% Muslims and in the face of such a massive threat the Copt stands for Christ, yet here, we fear a handful of bickering Muslims.

The call on Christ to appear and rescue the 21 Copts has become a typical occurrence in Egypt since Egypt is mentioned in Scripture that upon His return (Isaiah 19) “they will call on the Lord to send them a Savior and a Mighty One”. And so in the demonstration calling for Christ to descent and rescue the 21 brethren, they cried out: “Have mercy, save us O Lord for You are our salvation … Kurielaison (Lord have mercy) … O Lord of hosts …” as they did the sign of the crucifix (see 1:40) declaring their faith publicly as to take the mark of God in the midst of a Muslim majority population yelling out “we are not kafir (heathen)”.

And this is exactly what these Copts are doing, calling on Jesus to descend and save them. Christ was called “Mighty One”, Isaiah 19:20 leaves no question as to who Christ comes to rescue: “He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them.”

The Egyptian Coptics are increasingly being oppressed by the Muslim majority. But if God sees their cause as being so important to personally send His Son, the Savior and Mighty God to rescue them, then we need to ask: what are the Coptic Christians of Egypt doing right and what are they doing differently from the western church?

He comes to rescue the Christians, the remnant in Egypt, the 10% Christians. There is no doubt that the “Savior” and “Mighty One” is Christ. In the Psalms, Messiah is portrayed as a soldier and a fighter with the same reference, “Mighty One”:

“Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, With Your glory and Your majesty” (Psalm 45:3).

In Zephaniah 3 this “Mighty One” is physically present in Israel’s midst:

“The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save” (Zephaniah 3:17)

He comes for Israel to convert the Jewish people to Him. And if in doubt that Christ lands in Egypt, explain this:

“See, Jehovah rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt. The idols of Egypt tremble before him, and the hearts of the Egyptians melt within them” (Isaiah 19:1).

Who comes on the clouds? We also meet Him in the clouds. We even sing “Behold He comes riding on the clouds”, yet we eliminate Egypt from the song. Indeed, we are lacking. We eliminate essential clues from our songs we sing. Why?

This is Messiah personally coming to defeat Egypt. Obviously Egypt is a 90% Muslim nation with 10% Christians who will be caught up in the clouds and then landing to fight tyranny and Antichrist.

But here is the dilemma, the Egyptian Christians are Copts who believe that the bread and wine in the Eucharist are miraculously, and mysteriously, changed in to the Body and Blood of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. They also believe in the intercessions of the Virgin Mary or of the angels or of the saints.

Yet Christ is personally coming to rescue them and snatch them up in the clouds from the persecution by the Antichrist, the tyrant.

Ever think about it?

If Christ loves these, who are we to judge what He considers His brethren? Is it perhaps that even their theology is more sound than ours?

They even have a Pope. The previous Pope Shenouda III (بابا الإسكندرية شنودة الثالث‎) before his death on 17 March 2012, he wrote a thesis on responding to the western Protestant style Christianity and its in English.

He called for unity:

“We are in an age in which Ecumenical work and attempts towards the recovery of the Christian Unity have flourished. The meetings between the Churches, in councils, conferences and symposiums have increased, and the fields of co-operation and co-working have multiplied. However, unity is in a much higher level than cooperation. The Christian Unity should be built on the foundation of the “One Faith”. Thus began the theological discussions between the Churches. This book in your hands is a step in this theological discussion between our brethren the Protestants and us.”

Go ahead, read his work, its an eye opener.

My friends are concerned, why am I focused on the ancient East and Church Fathers in my theology lately? Some think I have gone mad because I do not sound like your typical tele evangelist prophecy teacher.

And why shouldn’t I focus on the east? The Coptic Christians are extremely devout to Christ. The coptic church is probably the most devoute and active church in the world. Their youth were raised in the church and are very close to their church community and are just as pious as their parents.

The Coptic Orthodox Church of Egypt was founded in the first century by St. Mark, one of the disciples of Jesus. St. Mark is regarded as the first patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church. He planted the Church in Alexandria, where he wrote his gospel—the Gospel of Mark, in the Greek language. After winning many converts to Christianity in several journeys, he was brutally martyred by pagans in the streets of Alexandria in 68 AD.

The Christian Church of Egypt (the Coptic Orthodox Church) produced world-wide distinguished Christian leaders and theologians who defended the Orthodox faith tirelessly.

I had asked a fellow Christian on my blog to tell me about St. Athanasius the Apostolic, the twentieth patriarch of Egypt (328-373) who fought the Arian heresy. She knew nothing and the name wasn’t interesting enough for her.

He is known for his staunch defense of the orthodox faith, St. Athanasius suffered exile from his See five times.

There was also St. Cyril the Great, the twenty-forth patriarch of the Coptic Church (412-444), refuted the Nestorian heresy. His theology is regarded by Christendom as the key to orthodoxy. At the time of his death, the Coptic Church occupied the position of undisputed leadership in the entire Christian world, and Christianity covered most of the land of Egypt.

Christ loves the Copts, and so will I. Not only will I love them, but I will also learn from the remnants of St. Mark, the apostle. We always talk Bible, yet we forget who wrote it and where they lived and what they said and how they interpreted it. If I want to know what Mark meant by certain verses, I will sure check with the Copts before I check with Rick Warren!

Yesterday, we have decided to send help to the heart of Egypt. We will find these families and we will send them help and support. The west needs to think on more serious issues on Christian persecution which will increase as we see these events unfold. For example, we operate a very effective mission in rescuing fellow Christians who literally live under slavery. We are a unique organization (Rescue Christians) who rescue Christians, perdominately in Pakistan that live under the Muslim yoke baking bricks in kilns under the heating sun. Christians too are burned in furnaces in Pakistan with no one to morn them. To see an example out of the thousands we rescue, click here, and listen to the amazing testimonies first hand on how you can help and make a difference, now in this life and for eternity.

  • AnthonyM

    Kyrie eleison – Lord have mercy.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    It is amazing to me that the Copts’ pronunciation of “Kurielaison” sounds identical as our Latin pronunciation in the Mass “Kyrie eleison”. For any protestant reading, the Latin phrase ‘Kyrie eleison’ translates into English as “Lord have mercy.”

  • Fhr68

    Blessed be the Copts, children of God. Our Saviours brethren. who suffer in His Passion. Thank God your going to help the Copts. Kyrie eleison. you’ve lightened my heart just a micro speck from its torment over the Copts. if we can help them in anyway to help ease their suffering,

    Libyan parliament confirms death of 21 kidnapped Coptic Egyptians

    • Sister E

      These events are unfolding in an alarming rate: they will intensify and escalate until thos whole situation reaches a boiling point.
      Now what will obama say about the death of these 21 kidnapped Coptic Christians?
      If I was at the recent prayer breakfast as soon as I hear him speak against the rightful Crusades, I would have immediately left the room! I don’t know why Christians attending that prayer breakfast stayed on to listen to him. They should have had the guts to leave immediately!

      • Fhr68

        at this point I dont much care what Obama has to say, it will most likey be how muslims are victims, Isis is not islamic, islam is peace, same old retoric thats the usual to squeak out of him. hes like an annoying ol crow, you want to throw a rock at to stop it from squawking. Christians who attended that prayer meeting were probably hand selected, because they dont know anything about their christian heritage, or better yet like many comments on here,would zealously agree with the Muslim Pres. stupid retoric and erronous facts about the historical crusades and the inqusition. man what a time for a rack to get the truth out of people. lies lies and more lies. world is full of lies now, maybe its because they are fascinated with the beast! Rev 13:3-4 . see the libtard politicans bow their heads at imams prayers! yeah if thats not worship of the beast, i dont know what is. I may sound mad, but im not just enjoying my freedom of speech before its taken away alltogheter. if I say anything in public I could very well get arrested up here. so I have to do it one on one in a very stealth manner. Stealth Crusade lol.

        • Julie

          Also…I studied history of liturgy…and there was a growing clasm between the clergy and the peasants…very crude….and wonder if these were part of those who joined the Crusades…

          The clericalism…and ignorance of the peasants…in their lack of spirituality…most likely led to atrocities to the Jews.

          Sr Lucia said we are in the chapters of Revelation 8 through 13.

          • Fhr68

            yes I know what Sr Lucia told us about the third secret what chapters to read in the book of revelations about it. chapter 13 we are seeing it today the beast out of the sea is the 8th. 2nd beast is the Madhi. chapter 8 the first 4 trumpets is the result of the Global warming crisis they claim today. Jesus spoke about this as well.
            and I do believe you are right about the clergy and the peasants. neither of these were blessed by the Pope at the time which lead to the atrocities of the crusades some countries in the east refused to allow them access within their boarders. these traveled ahead of the crusading knights, causing havoc and attacking the Jews.

          • Julie

            Get hold of Martin Malachi’s book, ‘The Keys to the Blood’…i cannot help but believe that when East and West is rejoined…afterall the European kings ignored the pope and would not save Constantinople…..the Blood of Christ will bind us….in unity.

            And when our unity comes…then we will be attacked from the outside…we reunited…and many divisions and sects in Christianity will be restored as well…

            There is a very deep and scholarly article at….it is called ‘The Shaping of Biblical Criticism Politicizing of Bible’….and points to the nationalistic movements within Christianity to split it up…

        • Julie

          Check out Drudge Report 2015….Sessions Report on Immigration….and if you go down….you see Boston is sanctuary to illegals….and country has reversed itself of not allowing terrorists in…I have to read this all again…I could have mistaken..I am going to work….

          Boston is now sanctuary….look at how God now speaks to Boston…great inclemency….of snow….

          and….illegals can join military in 3 months….

          And…they are not letting anyone read this 332 page report what they plan to do to internet.

          Alot can be happening once they take control of the internet and we won’t even know what is happening in our country.

          • Fhr68

            I certainly will Julie , like you I’m at work at the moment . God love you dear, your in my heart.

          • Julie

            Thanks,…..and look at the weather in the country…you have to know how to live in this climate…and you cannot plant seeds in the ground whenever you want to have food…such a terribly different world for those who come here from warm lush countries from the South…

          • Fhr68

            All part of Gods plan my dear. But I don’t think they are coming here to plant seeds. I live way up north summer is short and winter is long, but the weather is changing at a rapid speed, in the past decade it has warmed up over 10 degrees. Winters have become moderated where temperatures are concerned.

          • Julie

            Interesting…I remember in Puget Sound…it so that we had to wait 3 years to have snow so I could use my sled I got for Christmas….in 88 cold weather and snow began to set in…

            Actually out here in Pacific NW…we are cooling….weather in May would be very hot and sunny…June cool and rainy…July and August hot. Now there are many places summers are cool and rainy.

          • Fhr68

            To the south it’s cooling down and to the north it’s warming up, how unusual and seems unnatural given throw the planet sits we are further away from the sun, where we only get a few hours of darkness during the summer time and a few hours of daylight during the winter. We also enjoy the aurora borealis, and live in the borealis forest region before you hit the tundra to the north , we are loosing these northern lights because the magnetic pole is shifting towards Siberia at so ever an increasing speed .

          • Julie

            Yes…I also have read that the magnetic pole is shifting…is that man made or a condition of nature?

          • Fhr68

            All conditions of nature along with it the North Pole is shifting as well towards Russia. And it’s picking up momentum, Which I believe is the cause in changes and upheavals in temperatures , the planet is going through natural changes, sadly they are using this to create the global warming crisis. Actual data tells us that the warming is not global spread. We are experiencing warming up and cooling down in different regions of the planet. Our springs come a month early now here in the north and fall tends to linger because of it. Yet the green folk claim it’s man made. Which is a Pack of lies. Antarctica is making ice. North Pole has melted over 50% since the 1940s. It’s all in the shift of the poles.

          • Julie

            By the way…I read about P Francis from solid source…he is not going to uphold the fake scientists either….

          • Fhr68

            Still like to read his cyclical, and I look forward to it. Thank you for the update.

          • Julie

            Don’t pay attention to the seculars…either they are deliberately deceitful or hopeful to say the least….P Benedict also spoke of the need to take care of the earth…but not politicized.

          • Fhr68
          • Fhr68

            aw I rely on our Holy Mothers message the seculars are working to suppress. you can certanily say they are deceitful. hopeful maybe. I dont believe pope Frances was being overly politicized when he addressed the farmers in Italy. P benedict or should we now call him Pope Emeritus but he perfers to now be called father benedict, to avoid any confusion. hes staying quiet in the divorced/ remarried debate.

          • Julie

            The Bishops’ Synods are on par with priestly chapter meetings, the chapters coming about every 3 years for religious orders…and similar time frame for diocesan…

            Here they finally let it all hang out after keeping issues to themselves for several years.

            I attended an Italian one..and the priests were really letting it all hang out, shouting, etc…and I asked at one point…lay and religious allowed to they understood each other with everyone going at the same time…they answered meekly’ Oh, we understand each other..’

            The bishops’ synod…according to Cardinal Wuerl our head prelate…and our local archbishop….both said the way the media was presenting the Synod wasn’t at all what was happening in there.

            Bishops are more a sedate class compared to our village clergy…so they let it all hang out….have a year in their own diocese…as they are on equal par in jurisdiction over their entire diocese as the pope…they can decide to refuse pope on any issues…as they are in total charge…believe it or not…so they have a year of more private consultation.

            You really have to go to Catholic sources to find the truth…and not those reacting to this or that..objective, detached reporting.

          • Fhr68

            Changes are coming for the better I hope. Still they won’t release the third secret, I’ve been waiting nearly my whole life for it.
            here is a insert of a prayer in a rosary booklet I purchased a few months back on the third joyful mystery ( the birth of Jesus ) ” o dying souls, behold your living spring, o dazzled eyes, behold your sun of grace , dull ears attend what word this word doth bring …” Notice the word sun , and spring? shouldn’t it be son ? Why sun instead of son or spring ? Why call Jesus your sun? Needless to say I don’t use the booklet for my rosary. I’m looking into the Rev who edited it. Since when is the sun full of grace? Should Jesus be described as sun ?. The prayer don’t make sense to me. It sounds almost pagan not Christian. I don’t like it. I’ll stick to the traditional prayers .

          • Julie

            Consider Christ…Who brought us life in Eternal time and space here on earth….we can enter eternal life right now…and this universe created by our Heavenly Father through the Son…who Himself came last to crown creation…and many times…on Resurrection Sunday, greatest feast of the Christian Church….the rising sun was likewise symbolizing Christ Himself…not paganism…but again Christ breaking the power of linear time…where so many people are imprisoned by their past sins and traumas…

            I think you would greatly enjoy studying the liturgical year…and going back to studying a little the Jewish calendar…

            What you are reading….is contemplative symbolism…recognizing the Holy Trinity….

            Our altars face east…to face Christ rising again each day to give us new life.

            There is a difference between being human and being pagan…and what you are reading is endearing humanity.

          • Fhr68

            aye that I would love to study. but sad to say no such courses in my region, not coming from my parish. see what I can find out in the next city.

          • Julie

            That is the problem for everyone….we had metropolitan workshop on the Triduum Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday vigil….so much to it….just a few came from my parish…one did and it all came together…she had an epiphany so to speak regarding the liturgy….and what comes hourly..the Liturgy of the Hours…online…

            ‘Spirit of the Liturgy’…is tops! Cardinal Ratzinger.

          • Fhr68

            Awsome I’ll check it out. Wish I could find a full course online. The church should make it accessible for those who can’t get to the sit in ones at least living in remote areas and working wacky shift schedules. Thanks for the tip Julie, God Love your heart. We have the bishop visiting next week for sessions although they didnt specify what he was going to minister on.

          • Julie

            By the way….on side here…why is West Coast warm…same latitude but East coast with so much snow…with axis changing???

          • Fhr68

            The ocean currents pacific travels from the south tropic, Atlantic current runs from the north , Atlantic is warming up at a very slow pase, it has warmed up enought in the past couple of decades to impact sea life .

          • Julie

            After the defining of papal infallibility in 1856….popes pretty much speak to us in regards to morality…as the faith is defined…all the way up to how Catholics have always believed about Mary since the get go….3 dogmas…two of Mary….what else can the Church say about faith? Not much.

            So…papal encyclicals are the means popes speak to us…letters…and not every letter carries the same weight of truth and obedience…there are a few people have ignored….

            To find out how much we follow…our local bishop gives directive in the perspective to receive them.

          • Fhr68

            All. Due to the melt from the shift in the North Pole. When the northern ice melts it has to release somewhere. Greenlands massive ice glacier is melting as well. The northern regions is slowly moving into the Tropic of Capricorn where the US and Southern region of Europe sits today. Be interesting to see a study showing the arc degrees we have moved since the 1970s. the planet is rotating at a very slow pace northern Canada moving south is the direction it’s heading . This is a natural movement in the planets travel around the sun, my cousin works in research ships that carry scientist to the North Pole, they find high volumes of tropical plant species frozen in the north from drills into the perma ice. Water from the icebergs is delicious to drink. It’s the best water to drink. The North Atlantic region ocean is warming up. Many species do not live there anymore. Our star fish have disappeared. And hurricanes are becoming very intense. Moving up from the tropics, places like New York Boston along the eastern sea board are experiencing the effects from the northern sea warm up. Rather strange isn’t it how the Atlantic is warming and the pacific is cooling. In the north is where you can really see drastic changes. But it’s all due to the shifts of the poles. Thing is the earths crust moves and shifts all the time. People forget about that.

      • Julie

        I have been looking at the history of the Crusades…and another by a Muslim of course, not referring back to how Islam took over Egypt, Syria, Palestine…parts of India…the Sikhs were boiled in oil….but the atrocities committed against the Jews happened in Germany…French crusaders were really more rogue…and only two Catholic clerics incited them….one a monk….and St. Bernard Clairvoux travelled a long distance to meet up with the Cistercian monk and told him to go back to the monastery where he was supposed to remain…and there was a Rudolf who also incited the peasants going into the Crusades….to inflict harm against the Jews living in the Rhineland/Danube…

        But the popes and bishops opposed killing of the Jews….this is where info is wrong…they are the administrators of the Church and it did not condone killing of Jews…

        Constantinople was overtaken, the pope asked the kings to go fight the Muslims, and they refused…New World endeavors. Not helping Byzantine Church was great sin of omission and led to so much fratricide and loss of faith.

    Hear what the Spirit told me today:
    People want to blame demons a lot. While their wickedness is legendary, MAN is capable of evil so vile it boggles the mind. Man needs salvation. It is tempting to want vengeance, but vengeance is left to God. He really knows how to serve vengeance. We as Christians hold a power so explosive, so vital it is mind blowing! The Copts are using this power. Martyrs throughout time have latched onto this power as they were tortured so grievously for their faith. The Faithful have led armies to fight the good fight with hearts bursting with this power. Of course you know I’m speaking about LOVE. Love as God produces in us –NO OTHER KIND–cuts through everything, gets down to the marrow. It will make a way to stand when everything else fails. When you try to picture the coming tribulations, do you feel faint? Do you feel fear? Or maybe you feel hate. Please hear this word–you will overcome, but you will only do so if you allow Christ’ love to wash through you. When your hour comes whether via disease or battle or whatever the Lord has planned for you–YOU will stand. His love will show the way.

    This word is for several people. Your God hears your prayers.

    I listented to the entire part of the mother who was speaking up for the kidnapping of her daughter…

    I wish this video would be made public every where………………..

    I cannot respond much to the articles today as they are so so so evil these people.

    Again…I cannot help believe that these Muslims are the very worst ever. I see in them Satan rising up to his apex…only to be overthrown. How, when? I don’t know.

    But I think these videos should be shown and put out throughout the world…NewAgeIslam is another place to show it.

    God bless these people….Lord come soon to save your people….He is coming….He is coming….

  • Fhr68

    Totally agree with Pope Shenouda III’s work! an excellent Point he made about the Church. plus many many more. incredible read.

    Faith and doctrine were the task of the Church, represented by
    her councils and bishops, and were interpreted by the clergymen to
    the people. Preachers are not entitled to teach their own opinions on
    the subjects of faith and doctrine but they must teach what is
    recorded in the Church doctrine entrusted to them. For if the
    freedom is given to every person to spread his own opinions, we
    will have differing dogmas and we cannot call this the Church

    • Sister E

      This is why in the Catholic Church we stick to the luturgy (bible readings) for the daily mass. The liturgy of the mass (2 readings from passages in the old testament) and one reading from a passage in the new testament. Each year represents a cycle. We have cycle A B C – covering the whole Bible. In each cycle of the liturgical calendar, we have six seasons:
      Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Sat. night/Easter Vigil)
      Ordinary TIme
      No matter where you go to attend mass (worldwide) the liturgy is the SAME. The priest celebrating the mass will deliver his sermon based on the liturgy of the day (the Bible readings). Thus there is UNIFORMITY, HARMONY, and ORDER regarding how we use the Bible.

      • Fhr68

        yes I know Im a Catholic. but the ordinary sunday missal has alot of changes from the old missal of 1960. Vat IIs new missal, from traditional latin Mass sunday missal. ever compare the two? quite different. liturgy has been changed quite a bit since then. Thank fully changes are put into place to bring it back to the Traditions. which will bring the liturgy back inline with the Orthodox Churches, dont know about you, but I read the Catechism of Trent, along with my Bible, and of course the Popes encyclicals. can’t wait to read Pope Frances new encyclical on global warming. which is going to be a very interesting read. remember his statement to the UN on dec 11 2014?
        Quote :
        “The effective struggle against global warming will only be possible with a responsible collective answer, that goes beyond particular interests and behavior and is developed free of political and economic pressures … On climate change, there is a clear, definitive and ineluctable ethical imperative to act … The establishment of an international climate change treaty is a grave ethical and moral responsibility.”

    Wisdom 3: 1 – 9 1 But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment will ever touch them. 2 In the eyes of the foolish they seemed to have died, and their departure was thought to be an affliction, 3 and their going from us to be their destruction; but they are at peace. 4 For though in the sight of men they were punished, their hope is full of immortality. 5 Having been disciplined a little, they will receive great good, because God tested them and found them worthy of himself; 6 like gold in the furnace he tried them, and like a sacrificial burnt offering he accepted them. 7 In the time of their visitation they will shine forth, and will run like sparks through the stubble. 8 They will govern nations and rule over peoples, and the Lord will reign over them for ever. 9 Those who trust in him will understand truth, and the faithful will abide with him in love, because grace and mercy are upon his elect, and he watches over his holy ones.

      Fully loaded Bibles are amazing.

        Amen Julie…And to think I went most of my life with Bibles partially loaded. No wonder I was such a lousy shot!

        • Julie LaBrecque

          That’s funny!

        • Grandmere

          Good one. you get a big SNAP!

    Thanks for the correction, I assumed Latin since it is used in the Latin Mass – guess it is an transliteration of it, thanks for providing the link, I read through it, and saw that the same phraseology is used in Tobit! Did you notice how similar it sounds to how we say it?

  • Julie LaBrecque

    Like that stance! Wish the US would have it.

    I may be speaking out of turn, but I believe that this information was provided in one of his past articles, not sure which one, maybe the one about ‘The Ark Has been Discovered”. Go to the search box and enter that and see what it brings up. One of their 19th century martyrs, (I believe he had hot tar poured over his face), in the account of his martyrdom he is recording as calling out to the Virgin and to Christ during his ordeal. The Copts are awesome, have true devotion to the Virgin, they fast from meats for 210 days each year! Western Christianity does not have any ascetic disciplines. We need to be more like the Copts!

    Just finished the video, enjoyed it immensely, had not seen this one. I had not known that these appearances traced the trip of the holy family while in exile there. Thanks again.

    Walid, you are not mad for focusing on the East. Many in the West are dumb and asleep because they don’t have any of that focus.

    yes I know, thats what makes it an interesting read. I want to hear the popes word on this.
    I dont fall for global warming and read it a number of times in the bible. as well as news. their man made crisis is all based on one mans theory Loveland. the 2 billion dollar green house scam. aq: UN invention. all countries agreed to it, but uncertain how many if any actually signed a contract. as the UN was attempting to do.

    …and in the end…. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord…He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored….He has loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword His truth is marching on.’

    Awesome stanza. Awesome hymn

    well….it implies also the growing rift between the clergy and those peasants not open to a greater and deeper faith….that led to the cause of the reformation…..clericalism.

    The next cruel cross and sword element might indeed be on mentioned..but not in rome,most likely it will be in bosnia hercegovina mountain plateu attack on pope franscis motorcade and the pope..this was mentioned in nostradamus prophecy..the last by bullet..this time by sword beware sround easter..beware at time of blood moon..blood is the keyword

    True….but it is the peasants…and a cleric and Cistercian monk who went to these to rile them up against the Jews….the pope and bishops telling Christians not to attack the Jews.

    I don’t even see how anyone could call them Christian…and they must have been the cause for the growing anti clericalism based on their own pride and nationalism. I now see the problem that came in the Church prior to the Reformatoin was not just the clergy but the willfully ignorant masses.

    How many times do we go to church and hear of people not obeying the Christian directives of their pastors here in America?…happens all the time…and the scandal these give.

    Right on…the British minister proposed this 150 years ago…and then later recanted…it does not fit with the 2000 year old spirit of the Church.

    Yes there will be rapture…but much more pronounced…no airplanes going along with no pilot…etc….that is corn ball…flying cornball..

  • Julie

    USA has greatest voting bloc: Christianity..and there are 34,000 derivatives of Protestantism…cannot stand being with each other and so split up and start a new true Church…

    Problem is…there is no perfection in this life…for this perspective and context…we all have to wait for the New Jerusalem that is coming…a new heaven and earth..and it is Jesus Who will decide who enters.

    So our best position is to be on trembling knee before the Lord all the time and not presume our pride gets us into heaven.

    Afterall, pride dies 4 hours after the body.

    Hello Danny! I am assuming you are not a Christian since you have not stated otherwise. I suggest you acquire some new inner and outer wear. Ephesian 6:13 So take up every piece of war equipment God provides; so that when the evil day comes, you will be able to resist; and when the battle is won, you will still be standing. 14 Therefore, stand! Have the belt of truth buckled around your waist, put on righteousness for a breastplate, 15 and wear on your feet the readiness that comes from the Good News of shalom. (peace) 16 Always carry the shield of trust, with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the Evil One. 17 And take the helmet of deliverance, along with the sword given by the Spirit, that is the Word of God; 18 as you pray at all times, with all kinds of prayers and requests, in the Spirit, vigilantly and persistently for all God’s people. When Obama makes statements like this…….

    Obama: Call to [Muslim] prayer “is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset”
    you do the math……. Google to your hearts content with plenty of articles and video of Obama expressing his views. After all, “American will never be at war with Islam,” Welcome to the most important website, ever, for learning what is quickly coming on the world.
