    All I can say about this is that God Says in His Word” I will destroy those who spill innocent blood.” He is keeping account of all of those who are His Children and He will have His vengence on those who have been harming them! My prayers are for and with all of them and their families. Jesus(Yeshua) is coming so quickly and He is raising up His Army and The Body of Christ is coming together! People need to search their hearts and ask themselves” Am I ready for what God is preparing me for?” Am I ready for the “GREAT CATCHING AWAY?” I am! I forgive those who are killing God’s children, and I love them with the love of God, His love that He has instilled in me.

      Me too…were you aware that Samaritan’s Purse has officially estimated the total of Christian martyrs in the ME at well over 900,000??? That total completely eclipses Fox’s Book of Martyrs up to 2014. It got so bad that Putin went to the UN in 2015 and threatened that if other nations did nothing, Russia was going to attempt to rescue as many as possible. Putin was able to get 5000 Christian families out of the hottest spots. Well, until the US stepped in and bombed Syria. As much as Assad brutalized his people, he left Christian families and towns alone…figure that one out!

      Our world is filled with sin, and there is no easy way to ameliorate it. After reading the evidence concerning Assad’s chemical attacks (over 100 in the last 5 years), I threw up my hands…the MSM has really botched a prime opportunity to truthfully turn the world against another bloody dictator and terrorists and save (omg I can’t say it!) CHRISTIANS from horrible deaths at the hands of Sharia nations and law (Syria, Saudia Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Oman, UAE, Yemen)!!!

      Do you realize that only Jordan and Egypt support us and Israel in the entire ME? Much less, the world!

      Well written comment, Laura!
