The Nation of the Cross

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 22, 2015, 6:00 PM



Vision: We want to tell the world of the great and mighty things of the Lord through



As the world responds to the Islamic State with hatred and vengeance, there is one group that is responding differently. They are not allies with ISIS but their enemies. And they have been slain by the thousands in the hands of ISIS. ISIS calls them The Nation of the Cross - The ones they have killed are bringing a message of forgiveness and hope. Declaring a love that they do not know - A love that reconciles even the worst of us and can make enemies into brothers.

We worked with several Arab Christians and Middle East Refugees to get their feedback. Also had it translated by an Arab Christian from Egypt.

A Letter from the People of the Cross to ISIS



Transcript:

The world is talking about you
Your apocalyptic dreams and spectacular sins
Are now awakening the middle east
In your holy war, come to holy ground
Come children of Abraham come
The people of the cross gathers at your gates with a message

Love is coming after you.
Like a rush of wind grazing over the pacific
From hills of the mount of olives to the desert winds of Jordan
From the cedars of lebanon to the silk roads of the East
An army comes. With no tanks or soldiers
But an army of martyrs faithful unto death
Carrying a message of life
The people of the cross
Comes to die at your gates.
If you wont hear our message with words
Then we will show you with our lives
Laid down.

For every throat you slit and every woman you rape
For every man you burn and every child you turn to dust
There is blood on your hands brother

But Come Brothers Come

Come with your bloodstained hands,
Come with your eyes full of murder for the people of the Cross,
Come lay your guns and your knives at the foot of the cross
A love that is overdue and overwhelming
Breathes through your cities

Though your sins are like scarlet
They can be washed white as snow
Though you call yourselves servants
He will make you into Sons
Where can you run from His love?
Even the darkness cannot hide you

Come Brothers Come
There is the sound of a rushing rain
To remove your sins and bind your wounds
You die for your god but our God died for us
The King of Kings comes to be the sacrificial lamb
Slain on the altar where we should have been
Jesus Christ, Isa Al Masih
Walks through the Middle East

There is forgiveness tonight oh brother
There is healing for your sins oh brother
We are no different.
Apart from Christ, we are no better than the worst jihadist
Christ has been crucified once. and for All.
To make sinners like you and me into brothers
Even you.
Even now.


Isaias 41:9-13 by levite
Isaias 41:9-13
This passage meant a lot to me as I came to NY for the first time. [FULL VIEW]

____

Isaías 41:9-13 Reina-Valera 1960 (RVR1960)

Porque te tomé de los confines de la tierra, y de tierras lejanas te llamé, y te dije: Mi siervo eres tú; te escogí, y no te deseché.

10 No temas, porque yo estoy contigo; no desmayes, porque yo soy tu Dios que te esfuerzo; siempre te ayudaré, siempre te sustentaré con la diestra de mi justicia.

11 He aquí que todos los que se enojan contra ti serán avergonzados y confundidos; serán como nada y perecerán los que contienden contigo.

12 Buscarás a los que tienen contienda contigo, y no los hallarás; serán como nada, y como cosa que no es, aquellos que te hacen la guerra.

13 Porque yo Jehová soy tu Dios, quien te sostiene de tu mano derecha, y te dice: No temas, yo te ayudo.

Isaiah 41:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.

10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

11 Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.

12 Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.

13 For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

Romans 8:30Living Bible (TLB)

30 And having chosen us, he called us to come to him; and when we came, he declared us “not guilty,” filled us with Christ’s goodness, gave us right standing with himself, and promised us his glory.

Remorse Warning

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 10, 2014, 3:25 PM
Remorse does NOT equate to repentance even if it is the beginning of what it can become. Real repentance forms a will of action and executes a turning away. The warning is to CUT the umbilical cord, don't just look at it and feel sorry -- will your action. Decisively "separate" from sin at ALL cost. (Rey Torres)

Christian Quotes

Devotion

“I give my life for the sheep.” John 10:15

The ropes used to tie our Lord’s hands and the soldiers used to lead him to cross were unnecessary. They were incidental. Had they not been there, had there been no trial, no Pilate and no crowd, the very same crucifixion would have occurred. Had Jesus been forced to nail himself to the cross, he would have done it.

For it was not the soldiers who killed him, nor the screams of the mob. It was his devotion to us.

Question, do you believe in young earth or old earth creationism and if so, can you cite some information to validate your arguement?

Can I ask, who are you, and why have you chosen to hide your identity?

Atheism is a disbelieve, not a belief. Is bald head a hairstyle?
