‘the world loves it’s own’

South Korean protesters rally in support of Ling and Lee.

“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.”  John 15:18-21Anyone that keeps up with world news is aware of the two journalist that worked for Al Gore’s independent media network Current TV, that were held captive in North Korea under the suspicion of espionage.

Euna Lee and Laura Ling were found guilty by North Korea’s highest court for “committing hostilities against the Korean nation and illegal entry” and were sentenced to twelve years of hard labor.

We are seeing a consensus of a world outcry against such treatment of the two innocent young ladies. Even the Obama administration is publicly considering putting North Korea back on its terrorist list, and is also weighing intercepting sea and air shipments from the country that may contain weapons or nuclear technology. Even our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has demanded that the government release the two women.

Now before I get bombarded with emails from malachi’s readers lambasting me for manifesting a insensitive spirit let me say that my heart goes out, not only to Euna Lee and Laura Ling but their families that will live in concern and fear for their well being everyday that they are held captive.

For decades North Korea  has been the leading aggressor against  human rights in the world. The price of a bullet carries more value  by the ruthless dictator, Kim Jong Il than the innocent life that it will snuff out. The North Korean government allows the populace to literally starve to death in darkness, while Kim Jong Il and his cronies live in the pinnacle of wealth and luxury.

Although the violent actions of the North Korean government perpetrated against these innocent journalist is nothing new, the outcry of the entire world against such injustice is new. It seems the world is standing in unity demanding this injustice be mad right. Where has the cry been for Christians in North Korea that have been accustomed to such injustice for decades?

North Korean Christians aren’t simply killed for their faith in Christ. They’re pulverized with steamrollers, used to test biological weapons, shipped off to death camps or shot in front of children, while newborn babies are killed by having their brains pithed with forceps in front of their mothers. Crimes against humanity reminiscent of Auschwitz and Treblinka, to which the world declared, “Never Again!” more than 60 years ago, are being perpetrated today against the North Korean Christians. North Korean Christians.comWhere is the outcry of the world for the Christians that are being handed down similar persecutions in China, Africa, India, South America? I can only liken it to the outcry against the millions of innocent babies that have been brutally murdered at the hand of the abortionist in America, and that ordained by a government that is propagating the same atrocities against innocent life as Kim Jong Il and his government.For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Romans 13:3-4When the government is corrupt and no longer a minister of God to those who do good, it will be a terror to ‘good works’….
Pray for those that are in bondage as though you were in the same. One day we may be and we will desire that they will pray for us!

  1. Malachi, my heart dropped at a statement made in this message:

    ” When the government is corrupt and no longer a minister of God to those who do good, it will be a terror to ‘good works’…. ”

    Is that not where our country is headed? I believe that there are those in the persecuted church throughout the world that are praying for our country as they see the path that we are on! How sad is that?

    • Yes Marianne, we should be concerned with what we are seeing taking place in our government, but not surprised for it is the end time prophecy we see unfolding before I very eyes.

      My heart goes out to the families of these two young ladies, but my heart is greater burdened that the world has not cried out for the injustice perpetrated against our brothers and sisters.

      This should not surprise us for the world does not love the body of Christ… it loves it’s own but turns a blind eye to the open persecution that is taking place in North Korea, Africa, Indonesia, India, China, South America, etc… But we serve a God and have a Saviour that does not miss a thing. These corrupt leaders in government will give an account for raping and pillaging the responsibility that God has given them in that He ordained authority… government that should be to protect innocence and good while keeping evil in check. Every man will give an account sister.

      Please pray for those that are suffering and keep them before our faithful God daily.

      Peace in Yeshua
      malachi
