Mini-Documentary: “The Nine – Overcoming ISIS”

1 John 5:4, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.”

Matthew 5:44-45a, “… I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven …”

“I know from the Bible that this is not them. It is Satan who leads them. They are people just like me but Satan controls them. I forgive them with all my heart and we love them. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray their minds and their hearts would change.” In the midst of a time when following Christ means being unable to buy or sell and virtually guarantees persecution and even death, look up and lift up your heads. Your Redemption is drawing near … 

Islam: What The Book Of Revelation Foretold – “Satan had waged war in Heaven against God, and was cast out. Filled with great wrath, Satan’s next battle plan against the Most High is to now destroy the elect of God, those ‘who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ’ (12:17). How? Through mass deception of a different body of people whose primary focus would become the conversion or elimination of everyone who opposed them (cf. Revelation 20:3). Satan’s new plan of attack sets up for himself a people who would be conformed to his own image in order to achieve the goal of destroying the elect of God. And what is Satan’s weapon of mass deception and destruction, the key to achieving that goal? It is Islam …” Read more.

 

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

02/25/2016 Leave a comment

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.

Germany: Entire Muslim Communities Threatening Christians In Refugee Camps

02/19/2016 1 comment

Let’s invite the closest thing to Nazism since WWII into Germany and call it “good for integration.” What could possibly go wrong? …

Qur’an Sura 2:256a, “Let there be no compulsion in religion …”

Hadith, Sahih Muslim 1:33a, “… fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Mohammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish [Islamic] prayer …”

Zechariah 5:3a, 8a, … This is the curse [אָלָה – alah] that goes out over the face of the whole earth … This is Wickedness …”

Proverbs 4:17, “… they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “These churchmen are courageous enough to note this problem when most of their colleagues are encouraging it to grow larger. But what do they think will happen when these Muslim refugees are fully settled in Germany? Do they think they will stop persecuting Christians then? Europe is committing suicide before our eyes.

‘Christian refugees are under threat from other asylum seekers, says German bishop,’ Catholic Herald, February 19, 2016:

The Archbishop of Cologne has warned that Christian refugees are being threatened by other asylum seekers in refugee camps, according to a report in The Tablet.

Speaking at an ecumenical service in Dusseldorf last Saturday, Cardinal Rainer Woelki said: “Concern is growing that politicians and the authorities might not be taking such threats seriously enough. Christian persecution is not a topic of bygone ages,” he warned.

He said Germany must speak out more loudly for religious freedom rights, a right that Christians in Muslim countries also had. “That is what we demand,” Woelki said.

That kind of talk, if Woelki follows its logical progression, will lead him right into Islamic theology. It is virtually certain that he will not follow it that far.

Meanwhile, Gottfried Martens, a Protestant pastor told katholisch.de that the “mobbing” of Christian refugees in refugee camps in Germany was increasing.

He said it was no longer rare for entire Muslim communities in refugee shelters to threaten Christians.

He claimed that Christians had been forced to watch videos of beheadings, were barred from using the kitchen because they were “unclean” and had been beaten up and their crosses removed from their necks.

As a solution, he suggested accommodation Muslims and Christians separately. He said: “In our efforts to be tolerant, which are in themselves praiseworthy, we cannot just let Christians become some kind of guinea pigs.

I can hear Catholic bishops in Europe and the U.S. responding, ‘Oh, yes we can.’

“Whenever I talk to politicians, I’m told that the churches do not think that separate housing is necessary and I’m left looking stupid.”

Yes, the Church as a whole seems determined to ignore and deny the Muslim persecution of Christians.” Source – Jihad Watch.

Hadith, Bukhari 9.84.57, “Muhammad said, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.’”

Flashback: Germany: Christian Man Hospitalized After Muslim ‘Refugee’ Beats Him For Sharing Faith – “A Muslim man at a refugee camp in Germany beat a 24 year old Iranian Christian convert because he shared his faith with people at the camp. The young Iranian Christian man was hospitalized, according to a German police report. The attacker is an Afghan national and is currently under arrest for physical assault. Hamburger Abendblatt, a German paper, reported the Iranian Christian man’s name as Amir Ali. He is 24 years old and came to know Christ in Germany. Eye-witnesses reported that Mohammad, the attacker, had an argument with Amir Ali about Christianity before starting to beat him up.” Read more.

Michigan Muslim Plots Mass Murder Of Detroit Christians For The Cause Of Allah

“If I can’t do jihad in the Middle East, I would do my jihad over here.” Even in America, the Beast is alive and well, working hard to seek the extermination of “vile” Christians …

1 Peter 5:8b, “… the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

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

Qur’an Sura 9:30, “… the Christians say, ‘The Messiah is the son of [God].’ That is their statement from their mouths … May Allah destroy them …”

Proverbs 12:20, “Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil …”

By Niraj Warikoo, Detroit Free Press – “A 21-year-old Dearborn Heights man threatened terror attacks in support of ISIS with targets including police and a Detroit church with up to 6,000 members, according to a federal criminal complaint unsealed Thursday.

Khalil Abu-Rayyan, 21, has not been charged with any terrorism crime. In an affidavit filed in a criminal complaint on a weapons and marijuana charge, he’s described as being an ISIS supporter who talked about committing violent acts of terrorism, including shootings and beheadings.

In his affidavit, FBI Special Agent Alan Southard said that Abu-Rayyan had been investigated by the FBI since May.

‘Since May of 2015, the FBI has been conducting an investigation of Khalil Abu-Rayyan regarding increasingly violent threats he has made to others about committing acts of terror and martydom — including brutal acts against police officers, churchgoers and others — on behalf of the foreign terrorist organization Islamic State of Iraqi and Levant.’ …

The FBI had been tracking Abu-Rayyan through social media, phone conversations, and surveillance. He had two Twitter accounts on which he expressed support for ISIS, the FBI said in the complaint.

According to the affidavit in the complaint, an undercover FBI employee was communicating with Abu-Rayyan. In December, the undercover FBI employee and Abu-Rayyan had ‘daily conversations’ that took place ‘over the course of several weeks,’ said the affidavit.

‘During these conversations, Abu-Rayyan consistently expressed support for ISIL and repeatedly expressed his desire to commit a martyrdom operation.’

According to the affidavit, Abu-Rayyan also told the undercover FBI employee: ‘I tried to shoot up a church one day. I don’t know the name of it, but it’s close to my job. It’s one of the biggest ones in Detroit. Ya, I had it planned out. I bought a bunch of bullets. I practice a lot with it. I practice reloading and unloading. But my dad searched my car one day and he found everything. He found the gun and the bullets and a mask.’

‘Abu-Rayyan said he targeted a church because, ‘it’s easy and a lot of people go there. Plus people are not allowed to carry guns in church. Plus, it would make the news. Everyone would’ve heard. Honestly, I regret not doing it. If I can’t do jihad in the Middle East, I would do my jihad over here.”” Read more.

Flashback: Study: Hundreds Of Thousands Of Muslim Americans Believe Anyone Insulting Mohammed Should Be Killed – “If, for the sake of argument, we use a figure of 5 million Muslims in America and if, for the sake of argument, the poll below correctly reflects the percentage of Muslims who believe that anyone insulting their prophet should face the death penalty, then the following number we can extrapolate from this data is frightening: The United States is home to 625,000 of your ‘average-all-American’ Muslims who believe you should die for hurting their feelings. That’s more people than the number of military personnel on active duty in Australia, Canada, Germany, Poland and the UK combined …” Read more.

Burned Alive: ISIS Reportedly Forcing Christians Into Coffins, Setting Them On Fire

01/08/2016 1 comment

How long, O Lord? To the Islamist mindset, burning Christians to death is perfectly acceptable, but don’t even think about ever burning a single page of the “holy” Qur’an …

Hadith, Tabari 9:69, “Killing Unbelievers [non-Muslims] is a small matter to us” – The Words of Mohammad, “Prophet” of Islam

Qur’an Sura 24:2, “Let not compassion move you from carrying out [Allah’s] law …”

Matthew 24:29-31, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days … they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect …”

Colossians 3:12-13, “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another …”

Titus 1:2, 2:13,In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began … Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing [epiphaneiaof the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ …”

2 Thessalonians 2:8, “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness [epiphaneia] of His coming.”

Flashback: Moments Before Four Iraqi Fighters Are Burned Alive By ISIS

By Raymond Ibrahim, Jihad Watch – “According to the recently published testimony of Karam Sa‘ad — a former sergeant in the Iraqi army who was imprisoned and tortured by the Islamic State in June 2014 but recently escaped — ISIS engages in atrocities that the West remains largely ignorant of.  Among these and in the words of the escapee:

They [ISIS] tormented them [Christians] in horrendous ways and many of them died [from the torture] during their captivity….  They used to put them inside what resembled coffins and then set them on fire from the inside.

The Western world was horrified when ISIS set a Jordanian pilot on fire, but as more escapees and former hostages share their experiences, it appears that such savagery is the tip of the iceberg.” Source – Jihad Watch.

Tribulation: Euro Parliament President Says Christians Are No Longer Safe In Europe

12/03/2015 1 comment

Anyone care to venture a guess as to why? …

Zechariah 5:3a, 8a, … This is the curse [אָלָה – alah] that goes out over the face of the whole earth … This is Wickedness …”

Hadith, Muslim 2889, “Verily Allah has shown me the eastern and western part of the earth, and I saw the authority of my Ummah (Islamic nation) dominate all that I saw.”

Revelation 13:15, “… the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”

By Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart – “In a high-level meeting on religious persecution in Brussels, the President of the European Parliament (EP) said that Europe cannot afford to continue ignoring the fate of Christians, who are ‘clearly the most persecuted group’ in the world.

In Wednesday’s meeting, EP President Martin Schulz said that the persecution of Christians is ‘undervalued’ and does not receive enough attention, which has also meant that it ‘hasn’t been properly addressed.’

Schulz’s concerns were echoed by EP Vice President Antonio Tajani, who warned that Europe sometimes ‘falls into the temptation of thinking we can ignore this task,’ referring to the protection Christians throughout the world who suffer persecution.

Speakers cited the work of Open Doors, a human rights organization that monitors the persecution of Christians, noting that 150 million Christians worldwide suffer torture, rape and arbitrary imprisonment. Christians in Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Pakistan, North Korea and Nigeria are among those hardest hit.

The Open Doors report for 2015 found that ‘Islamic extremism is by far the most significant persecution engine’ of Christians in the world today and that ’40 of the 50 countries on the World Watch List are affected by this kind of persecution.’

For Islamists, Tajani said, Christians are the new ‘crusaders’ of Europe, and because of Islamic persecution in the Middle East more than 70 percent of Christians have fled Iraq since 2003, with another 700 thousand Christians who have been forced to leave their home in Syria since the outbreak of civil war.

‘Each month 200 churches and places of worship in the world are attacked and destroyed. Every day and in every region of the world, there are new cases of persecution against Christians,’ said Tajani.

‘No religious community is as subject to hatred, violence and systematic aggression as the Christians,’ he said…

‘It should shake us up,’ said Schulz, ‘that on our continent, Christians are not safe.'” Read more.

After a relative lull, Islamic persecution has literally exploded once again in the aftermath of 9/11 and the rise of the Arab Spring. The Prophet Daniel writes that this final Beast would be ‘dreadful and terrifying’ and would ‘speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One’ and ‘intend to make alterations in times and in law’ (Daniel 7:7, 25).

Mali: Dozens Slaughtered After Muslim Gunmen Storm Hotel, Search For Non-Muslims To Kill

11/20/2015 Leave a comment

Devout Muslims are spreading the “peaceful message” of the all-compassionate and all-merciful Allah from here to Timbuktu. Literally …

Zechariah 5:3a, 8a, … This is the curse [אָלָה – alah] that goes out over the face of the whole earth … This is Wickedness …”

malimapBy Meg Wagner, New York Daily News – “At least 27 people were killed when 10 Al Qaeda gunmen stormed the Radisson Blu Hotel in Mali’s capital and took 170 hostages — but the grenade-toting assailants spared the Muslims inside.

The hostage situation ended Friday when Mali troops, backed by U.S. Special Forces and a unit from France, freed dozens of the hostages, including six Americans.

Security forces killed two of the militants during their rescue operation, and the troops are still battling the rest of the gunmen who are holed up in the five-star hotel.

‘The attackers no longer have hostages,’ Mali security ministry spokesman Amadou Sangho said. ‘They are alone with the Malian special forces who are trying to dislodge them.’

The gunmen arrived in a diplomatic car and locked in 140 guests and 30 employees inside the Bamako resort Friday morning. By the end of the bloody raid, 27 bodies were found inside the hotel after the attack, a U.N. peacekeeper said.

Al-Mourabitoun, an African Jihadist group affiliated with al Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the attack.

The armed Islamic attackers, who shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ as they overran the resort, released hostages who were able to recite the Koran, a security source said.” Read more.
