The Christian Faith Under Attack written by Ruth Dickson.

The Christian Faith Under Attack.

“Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” 2 Timothy 3:12
In these last days, the Bible tells us Christians will find in harder to practice the Christian faith in a world sold out to idols and idolatry. True followers of Jesus Christ face persecution globally, but scripture shows us that all who persevere to the end will be saved.

As of today, Christians are being terrorised, victimised, killed and maltreated in Nigeria, North Korea, Yemen, Libya, China, Pakistan, India, Iran, Afghanistan, Sudan, Eritrea just to name a few countries. Hatred and persecution is going on in  many more countries. Who will hear the cries of the Christians who lament day and night? Except the Lord God Almighty God protects and intervenes there is no hope. Every Christian should be encouraged to pray for persecuted Christians globally.

According to Christian today, “every month, 182 churches or Christian buildings are attacked and every month, 309 Christians are imprisoned unjustly.”

Many atrocities and injustices are hidden and unreported.

Focus on Nigeria:

The Christian Community cannot turn a blind eye to what is being described as the silent genocide taking place in Nigeria. I say silent because many of the massacres are taking place and nothing is being done about it. There are hotspots of killings all across Nigeria, especially in the rural areas.

Internally Displaced Persons:

IDP (Internally Displaced Persons), are people who are forced to flee from their homes  due to harassment, arson, killings, land-grabbing and other such evil practices. IDP camps of safety  are set up  within the borders of any given country. Nigeria, right now, is  bursting at the seams with IDP camps. The living conditions within these camps are deplorable, especially during these times of Corona Virus.

Nigeria is currently facing one of the worst crisis of Internally Displaced People in the world and the situation is not getting better.

The borders of Nigeria are porous and the routes through which killers, bandits and terrorists have invaded Nigeria to execute mayhem on its citizens and communities, remain open.

While most of these atrocious crimes against humanity have taken place in rural parts of  northern Nigeria, the rural communities in the South, East and West have not been spared.

“Oil for the Journey” a Daily Devotional Translated into the Hausa Language:

A few years ago I wrote, “Oil for the Journey” a Daily Devotional for Christians who desire daily spiritual nourishment. You will agree, while we live on earth, we need the oil of the Holy Spirit.

As well as praying for the physical needs of Christians globally, it is also important to pray for their spiritual needs, that they may be met, especially in places of spiritual drought.

With the help of the Holy Spirit, this  book has been translated into other languages to meet the spiritual needs of Christians globally, especially those facing  persecution. Prayers, encouragement, direction, instruction, comfort, wisdom, grace motivation, guidance and all things pertaining to our life here on earth and eternity are what God’s Word provides.

“Oil for the Journey” reminds us daily of Christ’s great work on the Cross, how He loves us, the privileges and promises of our Salvation.

There is an eternal hope for all who love the Lord Jesus, despite their external situations.

Why the Hausa Language?

The Holy Spirit translates books according to need. May it be a blessing and reach all  who need it at this critical moment in time, in Jesus name.

May the name of the Lord be exalted and glorified forever. Amen.
