Active Enemies

12 The next morning some Jews formed a conspiracy and bound themselves with an oath not to eat or drink until they had killed Paul. 13 More than forty men were involved in this plot. 14 They went to the chief priests and the elders and said, “We have taken a solemn oath not to eat anything until we have killed Paul. 15 Now then, you and the Sanhedrin petition the commander to bring him before you on the pretext of wanting more accurate information about his case. We are ready to kill him before he gets here.” Acts 23:12-15

It’s one thing to have enemies that you do not talk to ever. It’s a whole new level when these enemies are plotting to kill you, and are willing to kill themselves if they don’t kill you! How could you possibly defend against such thinking?

You can’t.

Actually, there are Muslims whose goal is to see the destruction of the West and of Israel. Many Muslim immigrants are pouring into Europe and overwhelming the system there. Most Western Europe’s leadership is welcoming the migration despite the violence and havoc these Muslims bring with them. Islamic leadership has announced the destruction of the West, but Western Europe ignores the blatant threats as rhetoric.

This has long past the legal vs. illegal immigration issue. It’s now a matter of whether Europe wants to survive. Leadership doesn’t seem to, but do the people?

Pray for the leaders in Western Europe. I’m not sure why they seem to ignore Muslim immigration as being a significant problem in their countries, but they do.

On the other hand, pray for Christian missionaries in Europe. Yes, there are violent and extremist Muslims preying on Europeans and those from their own countries. There are victims that need to be ministered to. Those are the people who see the face of Islam up close and are searching for answers.
