Praying for the Korean Hostages

For the hostage in Afghan, there had been a lot of discussions these days. Including the "stupidity" of the Christians.

Voices like :-
"Christians are so naive that they think they can evangelize the Muslims where the culture bond existed for ages in this land."
"It is because of the evangelists that we have to have to release the criminals!"

... ...

In the Christian websites, people are crying for the Korean hostages. Begging the Lord to intervene and release these people.

... ...

In which case, the burden and stress that are on the hostages' shoulders and their families are not going to be any lesser.

Please pray that the Lord break the stronghold of Taliban. Stronghold of cult, spirit of destruction and spirit of deceptiveness!

Wake up! Do not forget this is a warfare of NATION, it is not only personal healing and deliverance. There are differences here.

The spiritual warfare this round is not merely on person, the cause was not about spreading Christianity in Afghan. At surface, it is about using them as a reason to force the government to free the captured Taliban leaders. It's a political game here. And when this happens, it involve the prince of the world.

What do they really want? What are their purposes? Be discern, do not be dragged along to the deceptiveness that they want us to see! It's not about the Lord, it's about greed and power, a matter of live and survive. It's about what they believe! ---- for us, what can change their beliefs?

The prince of world is using this as a cause to threaten, to deceive and to blasphemy! Any chances that he could have to tease God for His love and mercy and righteousness! We as soldier of Christ need to discern, do not listen to other voices than our commander.

As Joshua approached the city of Jericho, he looked up and saw a man facing him
with sword in hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, "Are you friend or foe?"
"Neither one," he replied. "I am commander of the LORD's army."

~ Joshua 5:13-15

Ask for His Kingdom, and it will be given to you!

Ask in His favor, and seek His heart! Do not loose heart ourselves.

Therefor when we intercede for the Korean brothers and sisters, is not only about the hostages' safety. But it's about "RETURNING TO JESUS".

We need to seek the comfort and mercy of the Lord not only for the hostages, but the whole Korean nation.

Are you aware of Korean being the second largest sending nation? And are you aware that the percentage of born again Christians in this nation had went to a peak surge and came down swiftly just in a few decades? Do you know that even Korean needs missionaries to tell them, to reassure them how much God loves them?

Be wise, brothers and sisters! Somehow Korea means to me much not only because of this is a sending nation, but also of her similarities with Japan. We still have a long battle to go, and North Korea is another place that we have no time to loose!

I am with you in prayer. I know that there are those who do not agree with them being there, but that is earthly mindedness. If we are to look at things from a Kingdom perspective, then they will look much differently. The day is coming when persecution will rise in all nations, this is just a foreshadowing of things to come. For those unwilling to lay down their lives then their religion is worthless (I know I sound harsh here, but hear me out) Christianity is about that divine exchange, we lay down our lives and He lives in us, therefore there is no death here. Each of those Korean Martyrs have transitioned from here to home. I have been praying for their faith and testimony to impact the area. The bibles says that the blood of the Martyrs cries out from the ground, I pray that those cries of salvation will be quickly answered and like Saul, many of the captors will become Paul!
