EU Playing ‘Hot Potato’ With Refugees

Refugees pdGreece (Mission Network News) The European Union is looking to play ‘hot potato’ with the refugee crisis. Under the Dublin Regulation, the EU is considering sending refugees currently in other European countries back to Greece, their original point of entry, before they can apply for a new host country.

However, leaders in Greece say such a move would overwhelm their nation as they are still struggling to get on their feet economically. Greek authorities say other countries in Europe are not pulling their own weight in taking the refugees ready for relocation. There are currently around 60,000 refugees stranded in Greece.

Tasos Ioannidis of AMG International says in the midst of these national struggles, Greek citizens are looking for something or someone to blame. And they are seeing a rise in anti-immigrant sentiments in Greece.

    Europe and North America and Australia are the most coveted nations on earth because white Christians of yesteryears worked hard and made excellent nations for everyone to live in with Christian principles and for all others to learn so much from. Mankind learned that leaders must become servants from Jesus Christ. If only today’s West respect God and their Christian ancestors and are not so pleasure-oriented or indocrinate immorality in public schools… Our God’s will be done on earth.

      May you be remembered before God sister because what you said is true. But God’s Word WILL be fulfilled. So do not be alarmed or disheartened when you see all this evil coming in the West. Instead I say look up and know that your redemption is drawing near. The book of Revelations says that the antichrist and all his forces will make war with the saints and overcome them for a short time. But then God will be with His saints. It will be a test for them, but not long, probably about three and a half years at its worst when Christians in the West will be persecuted or killed and then Jesus will return. We are living in this time. This is the time when the saints are described as with the “patience of the saints, keeping the commandments of God and the testimony of Jesus.” We do have to patiently endure, keep all His commandments and the testimony of Jesus which is the spirit of prophecy. Why do we love? because He loved us first. How do we know the Word is all true? because of all the prophecy in it that has been fulfilled in reality or is being fulfilled before our very eyes. Do not worry about yourselves. Keep your eyes on Jesus and His way. The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the saints. It is for only a little while.

        Amen. We must do something to protect global children from barbarism and perv cultures as long as the Church is on earth. Praying and evangelizing and educating. We cannot yield to the Western Sodomites when we do not know the date of Christ’s Second Coming, for the sake of God’s honor and for all children. Our forefathers fought for freedom to declare God’s truth. So should we in anyway we can. (Proverbs ch.24)
