Kenya: Al-Shabaab Claims Responsibility For Church Attacks, Will Continue To Kill Those Who Do Not Worship Allah


Revelation 13:12a, 15b, “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast … and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”

Food for thought. Although most translations render Revelation 13:12 and other relevant portions of this chapter to say that “he” exercises all the power of the first Beast before “him”, the Greek text does not necessitate an anthropomorphic “he” or “him.”  The Greek text could also be understood as saying that “it” exercises all the power of the first Beast before “it” …

KBC News – “Somalia militia group Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for Sunday’s twin attacks on two churches in Garissa County that left 17 people dead.

The latest development came even as muslim leaders in Kenya agreed to form self-defence groups to protect churches following the deadly attacks.

In a tweet on Wednesday morning, the insurgents said they carried out the attacks in retaliation for Kenya Defence Forces (KDF)’s incursion in Somalia.

An Al-Shabaab loyalist Sheikh Hassan Takar said that the militia killed people who did not profess allegiance to Allah.

‘The mujahedeen (holy warriors) punished with their hands those believing and worshipping other than Allah,’ he said.

‘The militants will continue until such practice is eliminated.’ He added

They urged the Kenyan government to pull its troops out of Somalia, warning that they will target major buildings in Nairobi if they continue fighting the insurgents.

At the same time, Adan Wachu, head of the Supreme Council of Kenyan Muslims, told the BBC the attacks were acts of terrorism.

‘There are people out there who are determined to make Kenya another Nigeria,’ Mr Wachu, who also chairs the Inter-Religious Council of Kenya, told the BBC Network Africa programme.” Read more.

Revelation 13: A Commentary – “For the second Beast I see two possibilities. One, it may be referring to a reawakening as it were of all radical Islamic terrorist organizations rising up from within this new Islamic Empire with a massive upswing in their ‘membership numbers’. Since both the Shiite and Sunni branches of Islam are actively seeking the implementation of the Caliphate or, essentially, an Islamic Empire akin to a neo-Ottoman Caliphate where Sharia is the law of the land, the two horns here could be representing the extremist organizations within both the Shia and Sunni branches of radical Islam …” Read more.

2 Thessalonians 2:4 — A Rebuilt Jewish Temple, or Something Else? – “We should not discount the possibility that the ‘man of sin’ may not be pointing to one single person as it were, though the general consensus is precisely that, but could instead be pointing to one single entity.  The ekklesia of God is comprised of a great multitude of believing Jews and Gentiles created as ‘one new man’ in Christ who are marked by God (Eph. 2:15, Rev. 14:1) and described by John in Revelation 7 as the ‘multitude of the lamb‘, ie, the multitude of Christ. Conversely, the ‘man of sin’ (2 Thess 2:3) could therefore be its direct antithesis comprised of those who have the Mark of the Beast and described by John in Revelation 13 as the ‘multitude of a man’, ie, the multitude of Mohammed.” Read more.

    So much for some Muslims’ and Christians’ claims that Christians also worship the same ‘god’.
