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


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.

    I rejoice seeing Quran followers come to Christ. They will see God as ligfht not5- seeing b-him as fire. They will rise into the air to meet Jesus when he comes back. The repentant Muslims will get away from the Satan when he shows up as a bright angel standing on the earth trying to prove that he is God. God does not have to prove anything.
    Hebrews 7:25King James Version (KJV) Cambridge editon bible 1611 or 1900.
    25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
    Luke 20:38“For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.”
    Romans 13:10-14 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
    11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
    12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
    13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
    14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
    The gay is your neighbour not rushing the door of anyone not being the Sodomite. They have love willing to give that love to others.
    Jesus willingly laid his life down that we might have life having it more abundantly!
    Philippians 2:12 12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

    12 places in KJV says the heart figuratively is to be circumcised not the sexual organs at all. Deuteronomy 30:6, Deuteronomy 10:16; Jeremiah 4:4, Jeremiah 9:26; Colossians 2:11-15; Acts 7:51;Leviticus 26:41;Romans 2:29, Romans 3: 30, ROMANS 2:25. 1611 King James Version of Galatians 6:15:
    For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision,
    but a new creature. Romans: 4:11 “And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:”

    1 Timothy 4:4: For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if
    it be received with thanksgiving:

    Proverbs 12: 10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast:
    but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.
