Muslims Reportedly Coming To Christ In Nigeria Despite Brutal Persecution Of Christians

02/25/2016 2 comments

As long as there is breath in your nostrils, there is hope in our hearts …

Matthew 11:28-30, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

b6d12-6a014e5f57cd90970c0147e3824036970b-piBy Florence Taylor, Christian Today – “Muslims are converting to Christianity in northern Nigeria amid rapidly rising levels of Christian persecution, which has seen more than ten thousand Christians killed in five years, according to a new report released today.

While much media attention has been focussed on Islamic State and the plight of persecuted minorities in the Middle East, 11,500 Christians in northern Nigeria were killed in five years between 2006-2014, and 13,000 churches were destroyed, forcing 1.3 million Christians to flee to safer areas of the country.

In 2014, Boko Haram, an Islamist militant group active mainly in northern Nigeria, was named the world’s deadliest terror organisation by the Global Terrorism Index.

In 2015, the number of Christians violently killed in the country increased by 62 per cent, to 4,028 people, and 198 churches were attacked, according to persecution charity Open Doors’ 2016 World Watch List.

A new report, Crushed but not defeated, the impact of persistent violence on the Church in Northern Nigeria, by Open Doors and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) reveals a horrific degree of violence against Christians, but also glimmers of hope from a Church that is determined to remain strong.

CAN, Nigeria’s largest confederation of churches, has committed to revive the Church in northern Nigeria, both by grass roots action and by advocacy. It is calling on the UN and other international bodies to engage with the plight of Christians who feel long abandoned.

While Nigeria is technically a secular federal state with religious freedom enshrined in its constitution, ‘the reality in Northern Nigeria is radically different,’ said Lisa Pearce, chief executive of Open Doors UK and Ireland.

‘For decades, Christians in the region have suffered marginalisation and discrimination as well as targeted violence. This is happening not only in the Sharia states of the Far North where the pressure of Islam is hard felt, but also in the non-Sharia Middle Belt states where Sharia has not been formally implemented.'” Read more.

Rumors Of War: Putin Threatens Turkey With Tactical Nukes

02/25/2016 Leave a comment

This is a bad neighborhood to be in right now …

Matthew 24:6-7, “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.”

1-963JN – “Award-winning Iran-Contra journalist Robert Parry has been told by a source close to Vladimir Putin that Russia has threatened Turkey with the use of tactical nuclear weapons if it launches a joint invasion of Syria with Saudi Arabia.

Writing for Consortium News, Parry warns that the risk of the United States and its allies escalating the conflict in Syria to rescue rebels who are now on the verge of defeat could spark ‘World War III’.

“If Turkey (with hundreds of thousands of troops massed near the Syrian border) and Saudi Arabia (with its sophisticated air force) follow through on threats and intervene militarily to save their rebel clients, who include Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, from a powerful Russian-backed Syrian government offensive, then Russia will have to decide what to do to protect its 20,000 or so military personnel inside Syria,” writes Parry.

“A source close to Russian President Vladimir Putin told me that the Russians have warned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Moscow is prepared to use tactical nuclear weapons if necessary to save their troops in the face of a Turkish-Saudi onslaught. Since Turkey is a member of NATO, any such conflict could quickly escalate into a full-scale nuclear confrontation.”

Parry’s background suggests the information should be treated seriously. He covered the Iran-Contra scandal for the Associated Press and Newsweek and was later given a George Polk award for his work on intelligence matters.

According to Parry, although President Obama has ‘sought to calm Erdogan down and made clear that the U.S. military would not join the invasion,’ he has been ‘unwilling to flatly prohibit such an intervention’.

Moscow’s alleged threat to repel a Turkish invasion of Syria with nuclear weapons follows comments by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in which he warned of a new world war if the United States and its allies send ground troops into Syria.

Rumor: Saudi Arabia Moves Planes To Turkey, Joint Attack On Russian, Syrian And Kurdish Forces About To Begin – “Russian and Syrian jets are on standby to shoot down any Turkish or Saudi plane that crosses into Syria. Turkey is prepared to close the Bosporus and attack Russian ships in the Mediterranean… Our sources confirm that Saudi Arabia has delivered tactical nuclear weapons to Turkey. Turkey already has 84 nuclear weapons at Incirlik Air Base under NATO control. We have confirmed that both Saudi Arabia and Turkey have American planes, both F 15 and F 16 modified for nuclear attack by Israel. America has removed all nuclear attack planes from Turkey under orders of President Obama. We have confirmed that Turkey has a contingency plan to seize the NATO nuclear arsenal at Incirlik with the help of Saudi Special Forces, who have been trained in Israel to defeat US nuclear weapon security measures.” Read more.

Beheaded, Shot, Burned: Hundreds Of Christians Flee Northeast Kenya After Islamists Begin Hunting Them Down

There’s a good reason why Scripture likens the kingdom of Islam to a predatory beast …

Qur’an Sura 2:191-193, “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out … fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”

africa-islam-christianBy BosNewsLife Africa Service – “Hundreds of Christians in northeastern Kenya have fled their homes after at least six Christians were killed in a new wave of Islamic attacks, Christians and aid workers say.

In the latest published incident, Islamic militants of the al Shabaab group entered Maporomoko village in Lamu County, killing four believers, local Christians and aid workers said.

‘Two were shot, one was beheaded, and another died because his house had been set on fire,’ explained Voice of the Martyrs Canada (VOMC), an advocacy group closely monitoring the situation in a statement obtained by BosNewsLife.

Some reportedly survived the January 31st attack, details of which only emerged recently. Eyewitnesses said it’s clear that the attackers were hunting down Christians.

In other known attacks, two people were killed on December 21st, 2015 when al Shabaab militants stopped a bus that was travelling to the capital of Mandera region. ‘Fortunately, they were unsuccessful in their attempts to segregate the Christian passengers from those who were Muslim. This was largely due to several Muslim passengers who, in their efforts to protect the Christians aboard, refused to cooperate with the rebels,’ VOMC said

‘One of the Christian passengers, however, was killed while trying to escape, and so was the driver of a separate vehicle after he approached the stopped bus.’ Witnesses said militants killed the other driver when they learned he was a Christian.” Read more.

Libya: Islamic State Seizes Government Security HQ, Beheads 12

They were simply following the divine commands of the god-like “prophet” of Islam …

Qur’an Sura 48:10, “Indeed, those who pledge allegiance to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually pledging allegiance to Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 4:80, “He who obeys the Messenger [Mohammed] has obeyed Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 47:4, “So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them …”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘A second security official said that the militants used the headless bodies of the officers they killed to block the roads leading to the security headquarters—which they occupied for about three hours.’

‘Narrated Anas: The Prophet cut off the hands and feet of the men belonging to the tribe of Uraina and did not cauterize (their bleeding) till they died.’ (Bukhari 8.82.795)

‘Where ISIS Is Doubling,’ by Adam Chandler, The Atlantic, February 24, 2016:

The Libyan branch of ISIS staged a gruesome attack Wednesday on government-security headquarters in the western city of Sabratha. According to the AP, the group beheaded 12 officers before taking control of the complex.

“A second security official said that the militants used the headless bodies of the officers they killed to block the roads leading to the security headquarters—which they occupied for about three hours,” the report added.

The attack came less than a week after American airstrikes hit an ISIS training camp in the city, killing about 40 people, including two Serbian hostages. The renascent U.S. efforts in Libya speak to a growing concern shared by a number of countries about ISIS’s increasing ability to flourish in the North African country.

American intelligence officials estimate that the group’s ranks in Libya have grown to 6,500 fighters, more than doubling since the fall. ISIS first declared its intentions to establish a presence in Libya in 2014 and has been launching attacks ever since. The group is now thought to control 150 miles of Libyan coastline.

Part of this surge is being attributed to the civil discord in Libya among the country’s competing political factions and militias, which have produce rival governments with their own security forces. The chaos has had major economic repercussions as well. Last month, the head of the country’s national oil company estimated that Libya has lost $68 billion in oil sales since 2013.

With Islamic State fighters suffering under heavy fire in Iraq and Syria, the group’s strategy of exploiting the security vacuum in Libya also appears to be a conscious one….

No kidding, really? You mean, they didn’t just luck into it?

The media as well as the governments of the West continue to underestimate the Islamic State.” Source – Jihad Watch.

New York: ISIS-Inspired Muslim Develops Sudden Urge To Create List Of Americans To Behead

Because the “word of Allah” says to “slay them wherever you may come upon them”  (Qur’an 4:89). The more seriously a Muslim takes their faith, the more likely they’ll want to see you dead …

Revelation 13:15-18, “The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed… This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate [ψηφίζω – ‘reckon’] the number [ἀριθμός – ‘multitude’ of people] of the beast, for it is the number of a man [the false prophet Mohammed]. That number is [χξς – ‘In The Name of Allah’ in Arabic].”

Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror.” – The “Prophet” Mohammed

Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day …”

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

Qur’an: Sura 4:89, “… Kill the unbelievers [non-Muslims] wherever you find them …”

Proverbs 10:6, “… violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.”

Buffalo Reflex – “When 15 to 20 FBI agents gathered early Thursday morning at the Hunte Pet Company parking lot, people wondered what was going on.

A couple of hours later, the agents arrested Safya Roe Yassin, 38, Buffalo, and she was later charged with communicating threats of violence over the Internet. Federal investigators said Yassin made a post on Twitter in August with the names, cities and phone numbers of two FBI agents, with the words ‘Wanted to Kill.’

She also allegedly made threats against government officials and members of the military, recommending that many needed to be beheaded.

Stacie Lane, special agent for the FBI, wrote a 17-page affidavit outlining a criminal complaint against Yassin, who had moved to Buffalo from Bolivar a few months earlier.

In the affidavit, Lane stated that on Aug. 24, 2015, Yassin tweeted a link containing photographs, addresses, other contact information and even credit-card information of United States service men and women and State Department employees. She also allegedly said that a media personality ‘would be better off without her head.’

Lane reported that Yassin tweeted a list of town of residence and phone numbers of approximately 150 U.S. Air Force personnel with the following quote: ‘Rejoice, O supporters of the Caliphate State, with the dissemination of the information to be delivered to lone wolves … God said: ‘And slay them wherever you may come upon them.’

The FBI agent pointed out that it is against the law to transmit in interstate or foreign commerce ‘any communication containing any threat to kidnap any person or any threat to injure the person of another.’ Also, the law prohibits aiding, abetting, counseling, commanding, inducing or procuring the commission of an offense against the United States.

The FBI first identified Yassin through a complaint call on Jan. 30, 2015, from a person who had befriended Yassin on Facebook several years ago. According to the complainant, Yassin was nonthreatening at first, but later Yassin was convinced that ISIL is going to save the world and was trying to rally support for the radical Islamist organization.” Read more.

Recommended: When The “Word of Allah” Is Given The Power To Speak, Death Ensues – “Time and again, we read in the Old Testament how the word of the Lord would speak to His people through the prophets and how those words would serve to warn, guide or instruct them (cf. Deut. 18:21, Jer. 10:1, Ezek. 12:25). In the Book of Revelation, John foresaw the Islamic Beast somehow giving its ‘image’ the power to ‘speak’ which, in doing so, would then compel those who follow the Beast to kill and even behead those who held to the faith of Jesus and the Word of God. Five centuries after these prophetic texts of Revelation were penned by John, the self-declared ‘prophet’ of Islam claimed to receive his own ‘revelations’ from Allah which have been compiled into the Qur’an. Interestingly, the word ‘Qur’an’ means ‘The Recitation’ or ‘Continuous Recitation’ or, in other words, to literally speak. In fact, Muslims even believe that the ‘revelations’ Mohammed spoke are word-for-word directly from Allah and read the Qur’an as if it is Allah himself who is speaking directly in the first person to them through their prophet to warn, guide and instruct.” Read more.
