Imam Embraces Christ: ‘I Started Reading The Bible, And Upon Its Completion I Was Absolutely Convinced’ That Christianity Was True

11/19/2013 7 comments

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing the Word of God. If one earnestly seeks to know Truth, then Truth can set free even those who have been bound and held captive by the shackles of Islam. May the Author and the Finisher of our faith, He who is faithful to complete it in all who seek Him, continue moving in the hearts and minds of those who yearn for His Salvation …

1 Corinthians 1:18, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

Romans 10:9, “… if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”

Pravoslavie – “The Linga portal with the reference to the Spanish radio station Сadena Сope tells about the joys and tragedies of a young man who turned to Christianity from Islam.

Mario Joseph was born in an ordinary Muslim Indian family. His father prepared him—the third among six brothers—as a spiritual leader: thus, aged 10, Mario entered a Koranic school, and when he returned from it at the age of 18, he became an Imam-khatib in a local village Mosque.

However, the young man turned to Christ, and this choice made him a target even for his own father who, having known about his son’s conversion to another faith, threatened to kill him. Moreover, his father erected a gravestone in advance in a local Muslim cemetery with the epitaph containing the young man’s name and date of birth.

The Spanish radio station Сadena Сope managed to talk with this young Catholic preacher and learn certain facts from the history of his tremendous trials.

‘From age 18, I was an imam and regularly delivered sermons,’ begins Joseph. ‘One Friday I was fervently talking about Isa al-Masih [Jesus the Messiah], saying that He was not Allah. When I finished my speech, someone asked me: ‘But, after all, who is the Messiah?’ On that day I could not find a proper answer; my knowledge in this sphere was extremely poor’.

Again and again Mario returned to the Koran, to the Muslim Holy Tradition (the Sunna), to various commentaries of the exegetes of authority, but could not find the answer. To the contrary, he noticed instead that the only woman’s name mentioned in the Koran, was the Name of the Most Holy Mary; moreover, according to tradition Muhammad died, while Isa was taken to Heaven alive. ‘Then, after long thought, I decided to leave the dead one and to follow the Living one,’ explained the young man.

According to Mario, the choice was not an easy one: ‘Before making the final decision, I besought the Lord for a long time to give me true guidance… Once, still hesitating, I Read more…

Dark News: Sun’s Flipping Poles Could Mean Lights Out For America

11/19/2013 1 comment

By F. Michael Maloof, WND – “A vulnerability test by the electric-power industry of the national electrical grid shows the system would fail during certain catastrophes – and would fail even if only some of the impacts of certain catastrophes were experienced.

That is the sobering message from a preliminary readout of the results of a vulnerability test called Grid Ex II.

It revealed that even though the test was done under circumstances that didn’t represent the full impact of what would occur in the event of a grid blackout – caused either by a cyber or electromagnetic pulse attack – the system failed.

The North American Electric Power Reliability Corporation, or NERC, led the nationwide exercise to examine just how vulnerable the nation’s electric power grid would be under a limited nationwide cyber or EMP attack.

The test, regarded by experts as presenting less of an impact than a real EMP, comes as the sun is about to ‘flip’ its own magnetic poles at the peak of its expected 11-year cycle.

The sun flips the polarity of its magnetic north and south, causing huge intergalactic geomagnetic storms which can affect the earth’s grid and communications including satellites.

The sun’s 11-year cycle started peaking a few months ago, and will continue through 2014, according to NASA scientists.

Todd Hoeksema, director of the Wilcox Solar Observatory at Stanford University, said the polarity change builds up throughout the 11-year cycle, and the sun’s magnetic field goes to zero before coming back with the opposite polarity.

It is during that time that flares sometimes are huge, and if one hit the earth directly, it could deliver a life-changing EMP blast.

‘Something big is about to happen on the sun,’ according to an August 2013 NASA statement. At the time, Hoeksema said the big event, the solar flip, was three to four months away – placing that time in a November-December 2013 time-frame.” Read more.

Israeli PM: Islamism Taking The World Back To The Past, ‘They Are For A Dark Medievalism … With Weapons Of Death’

11/19/2013 1 comment

Netanyahu again speaks truth where others fear to tread …

Proverbs 15:7a, “The lips of the wise disperse knowledge …”

By Tova Dvorin, INN – “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, at an Israeli-French technology conference Tuesday, contrasted Israel’s goals with those of Islamic radicals as a matter of modernity and anachronism.

Referencing the scientific studies before him, Netanyahu stated, ‘What we are seeing is the future. I think where radical Islam is trying to take us is the past.’ He elaborated, ‘We are for modernity. They are for a dark medievalism.’

‘We’re for opening up our societies for everyone – men, women, minorities, the right to be different,’ the Prime Minister continued, ‘They’re for uniform suppression of a rigid doctrine and they want to back it up with weapons of death.’

Netanyahu related those concerns to the threat of a nuclear Iran.

‘I think it would be a grave mistake to repeat the mistake that was done vis-à-vis North Korea, another closed society, doctrinaire, rigid and aggressive,’ he explained. ‘I think in the case of Iran, there is an opportunity. It would be a great mistake to capitulate before Iran when they have all reasons right now to respond to the pressures that have been put on them. Rather than surrendering to their charm offensive, it’s important that they surrender to the pressure that can be brought to them to have them abandon their nuclear program.’

The Prime Minister’s remarks follow heightened international tensions regarding a possible nuclear Iran deal, which is slated to be discussed in Geneva this Thursday, November 20.” Read more.

Flashback: Radical Islam Is, In Truth, The Normative Islam – “When will we believe the threat in the words of Mohammed? When will we believe the Muslims’ word when they proclaim their intention to kill us? When will we believe that they proclaim their intention to wipe Israel off the face of the map? When will we believe that they want to see the entire world including Europe and America, under submission to Islam and Muslim law?… Why do so many Western political leaders keep trying to tell us that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’?  Bombings, explosions and mass killings are certainly not demonstrations of peace.  Do our leaders support them or are they so afraid of them that they continually insist on ‘political correctness’ most often at the expense of Christians.  Will they insist on PC all the way to the grave?” Read more.

Islamic ‘Racism’: Muslim Blood Is Superior To Infidel Blood

11/19/2013 3 comments

Qur’an Sura 8:55, “Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve [non-Muslims] …”

Qur’an Sura 3:110, “Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind …”

Qur’an Sura 3:110, “Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind …”

By Raymond Ibrahim, Frontpage Mag – “Arguing that Muslim blood is more precious than infidel blood, Muslim clerics in and out of Sudan are outraged because a Sudanese court has condemned a Muslim man to death—simply because he murdered American Diplomat John Granville on January 1, 2008.

A 2009 report offers context:

The court had sentenced the men [originally four] to death in June for killing Granville and his driver in January 2008, but the sentence was cancelled in August after [his Muslim driver] Abbas’s father forgave the men.

Under Islamic law, the victim’s family has the right to forgive the murderer, ask for compensation (fedia) or demand execution.

Granville’s mother, Jane Granville, at the time had asked for the men’s execution, but her letter was rejected because it was not notarized.

The judge said the sentence was confirmed because Granville’s family, from Buffalo, in northern New York State, had requested it.

Then, in 2010, the four men convicted of murder, in the words of the U.S. State Department, ‘escaped from a maximum security prison’ in Khartoum. One of the men, Abdul Ra’uf Abu Zaid Muhammad Hamza, was recaptured and is currently in prison awaiting execution.

Finding the punishment unjust, several international Islamic organizations, most recently, the London-based Islamic Media Observatory, have been trying to commute the death sentence, mostly by arguing for Abdul Ra’uf’s ‘human rights.’

However, the Legitimate League of Scholars and Preachers in Sudan (an influential body of Muslim clerics) issued a statement last month titled ‘Let no Muslim be killed because of an infidel’—a verbatim quote, in fact, from Islam’s prophet Muhammad—revealing the true reason why so many Muslims are trying to overturn the death sentence.

The Arabic language statement begins by asserting that ‘Allah has honored human beings over creation and multiplied the Muslim’s honor over the infidel’s, because Islam elevates and nothing is elevated above it. The value of the blood of Muslims is equal, or should be, but not so the value of the blood of others.’  (The Koran itself, e.g., 2:221, confirms this idea that even the lowliest Muslim is superior to any non-Muslim.)

Next, the statement quotes the clear words of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad, as recorded in a canonical hadith: ‘Let no Muslim be killed because of an infidel.’ It then elaborates on the meaning of this statement by quoting from ‘the consensus of Islamic scholars,’ or ijma‘, a legitimate source of Islamic jurisprudence.” Read more.

Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “John describes the rider of the Black Horse in Revelation 6:5 as having ‘scales’ or ‘balances’ in his hands, employing the Greek word ‘zygos‘ which is also used metaphorically to refer to any sort of ‘burden’ or ‘bondage’ as well as the imposition of ‘troublesome laws’… inequality [is] rampant in the Islamic world where Muslim men are considered superior to women and all non-Muslims in general … The fruit of Islam and its laws have produced and will continue to produce the type of conditions that precipitate and perpetuate all sort of pestilences, all manner of plagues, any number of conflicts and hardships both inside and outside the Islamic world.” Read more.

Afghanistan: Devout ‘Religion Of Peace’ Followers Kill Over 800 Clerics For Promoting Peace

11/19/2013 1 comment

For peaceful purposes …

Qur’an Sura 2:216,  “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”

Qur’an Sura (4:76, “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

By Dawood Azami, BBC – “The last decade has seen a little-reported but systematic campaign by insurgents to silence Afghan clerics who disagree with their tactics and ideology.

More than 800 religious scholars who confronted the Taliban by calling their insurgency un-Islamic and unlawful have been killed.

The most recent killing took place a week ago when prominent religious scholar Maulawi Ata Muhammad was shot dead in Kandahar. He was head of programming for local radio station, Voice of Islam.

Some targets are very high profile. Among the first to be killed in this way was, Maulawi Abdullah Fayaz, head of the Kandahar religious scholars council, in May 2005.

The Taliban – a word which actually means religious student – have accepted responsibility for a number of these killings. Indeed, many of those killed either taught or influenced the men who went on to join the Taliban – in effect these students are now murdering their teachers.

The militants describe themselves as being at the vanguard defending Afghanistan’s ‘original Islamic values’. They accuse anti-Taliban clerics of justifying ‘foreign occupation and creating discord within the Muslim community'”. Read more.

Flashback: Taliban: Mass Slaughter Of Christians At Peshawar Church OK According To Sharia Law – “Proscribed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has once again denied having involvement in the attack on a Peshawar church last month but said it was according to Sharia. ‘We didn’t carry out the church attack. However, we believe it’s according to the Sharia,’ TTP spokesperson Shahidullah Shahid told BBC in a telephonic interview from an anonymous location on Friday. He said that there are numerous component groups of TTP but the motives of all of them are same.” Read more.

Flashback: Mosque To Church Ratio In Afghanistan: 48,000 To 0 – “Afghanistan ranks third among nations most severely opposed to the Cross. There are 48,000 mosques in the country—but not a single church building. Afghanistan’s population is 31 million, but estimates show there are less than 5,000 indigenous believers in this nation that has radical Islamic sharia law written into its constitution. Because of strong family traditions, any Muslim who comes to Christ is often in danger of an ‘honor killing’ by the family even before the government decides to pursue them, and Muslims who convert to Christ are subject to harsh imprisonment and possible execution by the authorities.” Read more.

‘This Has Shocked Us’: Little Children In Tanzania Taught How To Stab Non-Muslims To Death

11/19/2013 3 comments

All for the glory of the god of forces. Fortunately, this “school” was closed by the authorities. Unfortunately, where there is one, there are certainly many more just like it elsewhere …

Luke 17:1-2, “Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come. It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones [children] to sin.’”

By Deodatus Balile, Sabahi – “Tanzanian police broke up an al-Shabaab training operation in Tanga region, arresting 69 suspects and freeing dozens of recruits ranging from 4 to 13 years old in a security sweep carried out October 28th to November 5th.

‘This has shocked us, we have increased security in Kilindi district and we have deployed enough community police who know the place properly, and through joint operations with our police we are getting encouraging results,’ Tanga Regional Police Commander Constantine Massawe told Sabahi, confirming the number of arrests.

On the first day of the operation, police rescued 54 children and 32 women who were found at a training facility in Lwande and reunited them with their families the first week of November, according to Kilindi District Commissioner Selemani Liwowa…

Another 20 children, aged between 4 and 13 and who ‘had been completely brainwashed’ by al-Shabaab at a local mosque, were placed in a rehabilitation programme, Liwowa told Sabahi.

When police found them at Madina mosque, the youngsters possessed exercise books which contained teachings on ‘how to kill using a knife [or] a machete, how to fight aggressors with weapons and without [weapons], how to sabotage the economy and how to liberate East Africa from the hands of the kuffar [infidels],’ according to Liwowa.

Al-Shabaab had brainwashed these children to the point that they disowned their parents as not being true Muslims because they intermingled with non-Muslims, he said.

During the raid on the mosque, police also seized 12 videos containing al-Shabaab teachings on how to liberate Muslims in East Africa and the world at large, he said…

The children were handed over to social workers for a three-week rehabilitation programme, said Tanga District Commissioner Halima Dendego. If they are able, the children will be reunited with their families, she said.

‘My surprise is how these young children came in contact with these trainers,’ Dendego told Sabahi. ‘You find a four-year-old child whose parents are not known, and you wonder how they got hold of such a young child.'” Read more.

Flashback: Bangladesh: 19 Christian Children Rescued From Trafficker Intending To Sell Them To Radical Islamic Centers For ‘Suicide Squads’ – “International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that 19 children, who were to be sold to fundamentalist Islamic boarding schools (madrassas), have been rescued. Traffickers lied to the children’s parents, saying they would take the children to Christian boarding schools in Dhaka, when in fact, they were intending to sell the children to various madrassas… This is not the first instance of Christian children being trafficked to madrassas. This year alone, 55 children have been rescued from madrassas in Dhaka… once fully brainwashed at the madrassa, were ‘destined for suicide squads’ for use in jihad.” Read more.

Obama Removes ‘God’ From Gettysburg Address

11/19/2013 17 comments

It must really irk Barack Hussein Obama that he can’t use the word “Allah” instead …

Matthew 7:16a, “You will know them by their fruits …”

By Larry O’Connor, Breitbart – “Washington DC talk show host Chris Plante reported today that Barack Obama omitted the words ‘under God’ from the Gettysburg Address when reciting the great speech for a Ken Burns documentary.

Burns had filmed all living presidents as well as various Hollywood personalities and luminaries to pay homage to the speech which was delivered by Abraham Lincoln 150 years ago, today.

Plante broke the story on Washington DC talk radio station WMAL on his mid-morning program, ‘The Chris Plante Show.’

WMAL reports:

Curiously enough, in his version of the speech, President Barack Obama’s delivery contained an omission – in a line that every other celebrity delivered as “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom,” the President left out the words “under God.”

The video of Obama’s rendition of the speech can be seen below. It is unlisted (for now) on the Ken Burns YouTube page.” Source – Breitbart.
