Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 4th, 2016 Are You ن ?

We are living in a time of heroes of the Cross but we’re so enslaved to our American comfort that we live our days unaware. Meanwhile, brothers and sisters we’ve never met are losing everything, driven by persecution to flee for their lives with nothing but the literal clothes on their backs to live in tents, or worse. Those who do not make it out, or stay in defiance of Islamists to be the light of Christ in a darkening world, are being martyred for the Savior they love more than life itself.

What are you and I doing, not only to shine God’s light in our own darkening world, but to bring some relief to our brothers and sisters of faith who have lost all for the Cross of Christ?

Talon’s Point of the Day – Aug 28th 2015 Get Cross

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.” Jesus, Matthew 5:11 NIV

There are now entire denominations of self proclaimed “Christians” who never have to worry about being persecuted because they have voted to conform to this world’s views on sin. Blessed are you ONLY if you daily take up your cross and follow after Jesus.

Talon’s Point – March 21st, 2015 Should The Political Winds….

To paraphrase someone who claimed to be a follower of Christ but wars against him with every breath,

Should the political winds shift in an ugly direction against God, His precepts, and His word made flesh in Christ Jesus I will stand with Christ, and the tempest is building.

What winds are you prepared to face?

Talon’s Point of the Day – Jan 30th, 2015 “You’ve Seen One Communist, You’ve Seen Them All”

China, Russia (I know, they claim to no longer be communist) and other communist nations torture and murder their own citizens for believing in God and you think America and Europe’s power hungry communists, ie socialists, ie democrats wouldn’t secretly love to do the same?

More Run Ministries workers killed in Iraq

This is the second email I have received concerning Run Ministries workers killed trying to assist the Christians under attack in Iraq. I thought I would share it including the link to donate.

Dear (redacted),

I received devastating news this morning that we lost more workers in northern Iraq. Last night, three were killed and eight were injured in a terrorist attack.

Our teams were put on high alert several days ago after we learned that the jihadists were intent on continuing their terror in refugee camps, leaving no place safe for Christians and Yazidis. We increased our security in and around our network of safe homes in hopes that they would surely not harm people who were housing refugees.

But there seems to be no rule of law, no sense of dignity for human life among these jihadists. We have lost more of our team to their ruthless killings, but this has only strengthened our resolve to not let evil win!
Obviously, the security of our “Community of Hope” refugee camps is extremely vital right now. We are currently working on building camp #3, which will house 1,500 people. But with 7,350 Iraqi refugees now under our care — requiring food, water, shelter, medicine and protection — we need your help now more than ever before.

Your prayers and continued support ARE making a difference.

Thank you!

Talon’s Point of the Day – Oct 7th 2013

Talon’s Point of the Day has always been used to share, concisely as possible, what is on my mind and in my own words. When it come to the subject of suffering for one’s faith I am wholly unqualified compared to the hero of faith Richard Wurmbrand, so this quote is his from the 1970’s

“Friendship with Jesus is costly. Faith alone saves, but saving faith is never alone. It’s always accompanied by sacrifices for Christ’s sake” – Richard Wurmbrand, tortured for Christ by the Nazis and Soviets for a combined 13 years

In 1966, Wurmbrand testified before the US Senate’s Internal Security Subcommittee, removing his shirt in front of TV cameras to show the scars of his torture,

Talon’s Point of the Day June 27th 2013

“The movement to establish homosexual unions as “marriage” rather than simply acknowledged legal property contracts commonly referred to as civil unions is part of the groundwork being laid for a coming persecution in America against anyone who holds to anything traditional, especially religious beliefs. Europe’s law curtailing religious liberty, often exhibited in the issue of “gay” “rights” is the pattern, or the means. All out persecution is the intended ends.” – Talon

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.” – Jesus, Matthew 5:11
