ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS

Image

As a small child I sang the song, “Onward Christian Soldiers.” I pictured in my mind, machine guns, mortars and perhaps a plane or two dropping bombs like was performed on the movies I watched in black and white on TV. I didn’t as a small girl know people faced death or became martyrs for Christ.  I lived in the safety net of my mother and father, my church and United States, who allowed freedom of worship.

How would you like to face the possibility of death, watching your love ones hacked to death or gun downed because you attend church? Unfortunately, I held anger against the perpetrators and yes, maybe hatred towards these people who wish to destroy Christianity. Yet, Jesus didn’t teach this. He said in Matthew 5:44 “I say this to love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”

Times are changing and have changed. Today in church I listened to a young woman, a spokesperson for our district from Voice of the Martyrs, discuss but a few for want of time talk about the murders of Christians taking place every day.  A young, African girl described how her parents were gunned down in their church by men. She said, she knew she’d see her parents in heaven.

A man, Max, described how his church family in Columbia were riding in a bus and taken hostage by a gang of terrorists. The group ranging from young to old, lined up according to the instructions of the terrorist and were shot. Max survived after receiving two gun shots. Today, the person who shot him and murdered those blessed saints because Max believed in what Jesus taught him, is now a Christian. After all Jesus is our example. When he hung on the cross He asked God to forgive those who persecuted Him and said, they know not what they do.

Here is another example of a Godly man who lost his life for the glory of Christ. Pastor Lawrence Kazungu Kadenge murdered on February 2, 2014 while guarding the Glory of Ministries Church in Momboasa. He was murdered for preaching the gospel too close to a mosque. He left behind his widow and thirteen children. The mosque is believed to recruiting Islamic expremists for Somalias al-habaab terrorist organization. An alteracation occurred between the youths wielding daggers and the police returned fire when a policeman and a young man was killed. The Mombasa’s pastors fear for their lives because they have received threatening text messages alluding to the fact, they are next if they continue to preach the gospel. Kenya is listed as 40th on Open Doors World Watch List of the 50 most persecuted nations. In which the persecution comes from Islamic extremists, especially al-Shabaab or at-Shaabab-inspired groups.

Another atrocity occurred when Charles Mathole, a leader of Mombasa’s Redeemer Gosphel Church in Mtopanga was found dead on October 20, shot in the head with the Bible in his lap.

On October 21, Bishop Wilfred Lai, Chiarman of the Mombasa Church Forum stated, “that no attack on Christians or their church leader sill deter us from our way of worship and our freedom of religion. To the perpetrators of these heinous attacts, we hereby state that we ill not be intimidated and will continue to worship our Lord in our churches.”

http://www.worldwatchmonitor.org/2013/10/2779656/

Kenya has a Christian majority of 85% and has little history of interfaith tensions. However, in the past recent years persecution has occurred.

Each of these examples touched my heart. Tears fell as I read about these beautiful men for Christ who lost their lives.

I wonder if the church of this country meaning Christians those who attend church and those who don’t attend church but claim they’re Christians would be willing to give up their lives in the name of Jesus. I wonder if those who claim to be Christians and believe they are going to heaven because of their good works would stand up to receive a bullet or watch their son or daughter chopped to death in the name of Jesus?

Wake up my friends, easy street is fast coming to an end in this country. Our freedom to worship without persecution is under attack. We too are going to face persecution the same as my brothers and sisters across the world.

Please pray for the persecuted Christians across the world. Please pray for the families of those murdered and the church members.

Jesus said “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23

God bless you all. Remember Jesus is coming soon. Are you ready? Have you asked Him to come into your heart?  I John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is able and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Ask and you will receive forgiveness no matter what you have done. Your slate will be wiped clean. It is through his blood we are cleansed. Accept the gift and believe. sle

 

 

 

 

Bee Stings LIKE NOAH AND THE FLOOD

Image 

Good Sunday to all of you my friends and followers. As I told you, this Sunday’s blog was going to be different. I wanted to let you know the reason for my focusing on the themes I do every Sunday.

CHANGE-My earlier blogs covered emotions experienced by women as they travel through life. I decided on a new plan of action.

RESEARCH-I began to research the various issues brought to my attention. These issues astonished me. I couldn’t believe the extent of the evil in this country and in this world. I couldn’t believe the devious actions of some church leaders and of course our political leaders.

EASE-To focus on a blog which strictly focused on recipes. I know I would have found it easier and certainly not as alarming. Certainly, I would not have found it as scary.

BELIEVED-I believed like Noah I must become a beacon light and direct a beam on these horrible issues which are eating away at the fiber of our society, nationally and in the world.  Oh please, do not get me wrong, I do not by any means compare myself to the man Noah was. I am a Christian woman meaning I believe in the Creator, Lord Jesus and know the Bible is true without a shadow of a doubt. 

What brought my attention to some of these issues is when I followed the blog, “Sharia unveiled.” He reflects in his hundreds, yes, I said hundreds of videos the action of Muslims all around the world and in this country as well. Along the way, as I posted my various blogs, I was called a racist. My own family complained when I pointed a finger against the Muslims and their agenda. My own family rolled their eyes when I reported Obama’s evil intentions for this country. To change this country as he said into a different country. This is the only thing as of right now that is Obama’s so called transparency. I’m not sure those who possessed brains to think with would have voted to have their nation become a socialistic/communist country, if they knew. I’m not sure if those who voted for him would have realized the change in status of our country to eliminate the middle class. Thereby, United States will become a two class society-the very rich who are growing wealthier every day and the middle class now finding themselves squeezed. We would result in a two class society:  the very rich and the very poor, who will depend on the government for their lives.  

Many years ago, a woman I worked with escaped the Iron Curtain that they called the USSR. She worked as a registered nurse. She told me she had to work for one month to buy a sweater. Not a fancy sweater, a regular sweater. I thought, boy this is terrible. Yet, this very well can happen to our country. I’m afraid this is the plans of our leaders. 

WHY? Politics were for other people, I thought. Yes, I voted. Yes, I demonstrated against abortions and helped form a national chain. Yes, I demonstrated in support of our troops and gave blood after 9/11, but this is it.  The metamorphosis occurred after realizing how much change was occurring in my country, and the way this change would affect my children and generations to come.  So, I researched Pedophilia, Muslims and their agenda, the new religion and the leaders of Chrislam, Common Core and so many others. I have plans to expose so many issues which are going to affect us, Christians, the country’s citizens and the world’s people.

BEE STINGS

As Noah warned the people of his day, and God telling him a flood was coming and water would flood the whole world. People scoffed at him. My aim is to let you know the diabolical actions of these people in power. I use links to support the facts and even supply many times more links in case one is interested to know more. I spend hours sifting through the hundreds of facts to give you what I think is reliable information. There are many issues I have plans to cover as long as I’m allowed to report it as long as Free Speech is allowed in this country. Yet, I know I have like Noah many scoffers.

I become downhearted when I receive no comments on the various issues I report.  Perhaps, I should not take offense to this. I would imagine if people didn’t like what they read than they would issue a complaint.

Noah boarded the ark with family members along with two of every kind of animal as God told him to do so. The rains came and flooded the land. This is the bee sting I’m referring to-these issues. Are you prepared to be herded into NATO camps? Are you prepared to see your children bowing down when call to worship occurs for the nation to bow toward the East? This is intent of the Muslims. You say it can’t happen. Look at Sharia unveiled blog on WordPress and listen as the Muslims occupy the sidewalk of Manhattan, New York. What a scary thing you say. I shake with fear. So my call to you all is to BEWARE of those who wish to destroy this nation. STOP THEM IN THEIR TRACKS!

HONEY

The honey is the knowledge that nothing happens without God’s approval. He let’s things happen to wake us up. The honey is Jesus loves us. Though things around us may lead to the destruction of this nation as we know it, it is written.

 

HERE IS A BLUE PRINT FOR TAKING ACTION

1. Cling to Him my friends.

2.  If you find yourself able to make some changes, make a bold step.       

3.  Research the issues I present and others.

4.  Tell others.

5.  Demonstrate against those things which are wrong such as abortions.      

6.  Research the candidates running for office. Do they support your belief system?

7.  Vote wisely on the issues of the day. Don’t let emotions lead you to vote wrongly, but know and understand the various issues. Common Core was not elected into our system. This was a United Nation and federal event. Affordable Care Act was not voted in by us. DON’T LET FREEDOM SLIP THROUGH YOUR FINGERS LIKE THE CITIZENS LONG AGO IN GERMANY  DID. BECAUSE HISTORY DOES REPEAT ITS’ SELF!

MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS!

My next blog will be on Tuesday, December 10, a scrumptious recipe mommas and papas can make if they so desire, but loved and consumed by the mouthful by all. The next blog after this will be Jokes to make us laugh especially in this crazy, emotional time of the year on Thursday, December 11, and on December 12, Friday, scripture of the week. Then my normal blog on December 14, Sunday. Can you believe that in ten more days we will celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus, the Son of God?

Take care, Remember Jesus Loves you. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son whosoever believes in Him shall not perish. BELIEVE. FALL on your knees and CONFESS your sins. ACCEPT the gift and TELL someone. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU!  sle  I’d loved to hear from you. Please drop me a line or two. We can discuss whatever you want to.

 

  

 

 

THE MILITARY WAR ON CHRISTIANITY

Image

Christianity is under attack not only around the world but in this country. The attempt to stifle Christians is not only occurring to the citizens of this country, but through research we see an iron fist and intolerance of Christianity in the Arm Forces is occurring. However, little do those performing this censorship realize any attempt to wipe out the name of the Lord intensifies the zeal of believers in Christ to  spread the word even more. Once again Sunday arrived and once again I can share with you events occurring in this country.

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary the definition of the word, “BLACKLIST” means “a list of persons who are disapproved of or are to be punished or boycotted.” Let’s examined a few of the hundreds events  occurring to our men and women in the military.

The Air Force seemed to be the genius of Obama’s campaign to annihilate any mention of God.  The U.S. Academy at Colorado Springs has omitted from their oath, “So help me God.” that candidates take in their oath when entering the Academy. This, also, was removed from their handbook. A spokesperson for them stated, “This was just an oversight.” Liar! This was brought to their attention by Rep. Jim Bridenstein and signed by 28 other lawmakers that the Constitution  that this phrase not be omitted from their oath. http://www.independentsentinel.com/air-force-omits-so-help-me-god-after-saying-they-wouldnt/

A predevelopment meeting held for the service people attending Fort Hood  were reported by an soldier, who wished to remain anonymous to Fox news. In this discussion, groups like American Family Association and evangelical Christians as well as Tea Party members were reported as tearing the fabric of this country apart. They were told if they were found donating to any of these groups, they would suffer punishments under military regulations. The soldier continued pro-life movement was considered radicalization. Then, one of the most ridiculous statement made was evangelical Christians were mobilizing together to bomb abortion clinics.  I’m a Christian who is against abortions, I consider how dare a woman step forward to rid herself of what she considers a live nuisance as reported in one of my earlier blogs.  I’d like to see all abortion clinics legally closed, but never would I consider violence to close them down. I, also find it crazy that not one mention was made of Al Qaeda or Moslems  whose life is centered on destroying this nation as mentioned in a prior blog.http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/10/23/does-army-consider-christians-tea-party-terror-threat/

In June, 2013, Obama Administration strongly objected to a proposal to a Defense Authorization amendment to protect the constitutionally-guaranteed religious right of the soldiers and chaplains including evangelical Christian Service men and women. As reported, according to the Obama Administration, “the amendment would have a ‘significant adverse effect on good order.’” These ignorant men do not recognize what the acronym of GOD means: Good Orderly Direction.   They continue that this would effect discipline and morale.” This never affected the military before in the last 200 years. I find this thinking reprehensible. However, in my thinking the Left thinking is never substantiated and can never hold truth. The White House now endorses military reprimands  of members of the service who have a Bible on their desk or express a religious belief.

http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/obama-strongly-objects-to-religious-liberty-amendment.html

In April, 2013, the U.S. Army directed the troops to scratch off and paint over any scripture verse reference that for decades was forged into weapon scopes.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/apr/23/army-orders-troops-scratch-bible-inscription-scope/ 

The number of offenses continue to things like the defunding of the Obama Department of Justice in a Louisiana Parish a Young Marines chapter because they mentioned God and they prayed. 

http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/doj-defunds-young-marines-chapter-that-referenced-god.html

There are hundreds of instances where Christian men and women are court marshaled to talking about Jesus.

http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=13866

The question is why? When the Christianity and military worked for over the last two hundred years, why is it the agenda of the Obama Administration to eradicate any mention of God? Do they not realize their folly when they think they can duel with the Creator of this Universe?  All events in this world happen because God lets it happen.

Revelation 14:6,7: “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” The word “fear” means to have a profound reverence for God resulting in strict obedience to His requirements.

These men who aren’t afraid of the power of Christ and his followers do not realize their foolishness. Their pompousness and their strutting will not save them. For it is written jn Romans 14:11, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

Are you ready if you were to die this very minute to face God.? All you have to do is believe Jesus died on the cross. He arose again and confess with your mouth and your heart you believe in Him.  Romans 10:9 says If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. What a wonderful gift He has given us. I pray you have accepted the gift.

If you have any questions, let’s discuss them. If you want to comment I’d love to hear from you. Please comment. Until then, God Bless You.  I will post again a Thanksgiving yummy recipe on Tuesday, November 26. Then I think I might change things around and post  a Bible verse on Wednesday, 27.  Friday, November 29, I’ll post Humor of the week and then my normal blog on December 1. Can you believe it December 1 already!

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH CHRISTIANS MARTYERS

Image

Today, a video displayed Christian children murdered. A man picked up what looked to be perhaps a three-year-old girl who was beheaded. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Once again the horror and almost disbelief hit my brain. I wanted to hit, strike out, and hurt the Syrians rebels who gave praise to Allah as they beheaded her. This is only one small example of the way Muslim radicals treat Christians. (Video on http//www.shariaunveiled.wordpress.com)

Professor Majid Khaddiuri, world’s leading authority on Islam law and jurisdiction states, “There are just as many Muslim radicals as there are American radicals. The term Spoel (ghanima) is applied specifically to property acquired by force from non-Muslims included (moveable and immoveable), but also persons whether in the capacity of asna (prisoner of war) or sabi (women and children). If the slave were a woman the master’s permitted to have sexual connection with her as a concubine.”(http://www.Clarianproject.org/analysis/rapeamd-murder-pak

Countries around the world

09/08/2013 Maaloula, Syria Three Christian children murdered in their homes while six were held hostages. (Nothing was recorded of what happened to the hostages.)

09/03/2013 Adu, Nigeria Nine Christian villagers including two children machined gunned in their home by Muslim terrorists.

09/01/2013 Beledweyne, Somalia a Christian mother was murdered in front of her child. She was targeted by Islamic radicals.

08/06/2012 Ain Shams, Egypt a ten-year-old Christian was shot through the heart in front of the church by pro Muslim Brotherhood Activists.

08/06/2013 Richmond, CA a recent Muslim convert on a mission from Allah stabed a store clerk to death.

07/29/2013 Kano, Nigeria  Forty-five people were massacred and fifteen injured by Islamic bombers who targeted the Christian district and churches

01/15/2013 Haugesund, Norway A Muslim stabs two Christians who converted from Islam. .

The incidents continues.  These are only an sample of the number of murderous incidents occurring across the world.

Taken from “The Religion of Peace.com http://www.therrelgionsofpeace.com/Pages/Christian/Attacts.1 

Here is one more story about a Christian woman who took a sip of water from a Muslim cup. She was tried and found guilty and sentenced to death. Aasiya Noreen “Asia” ’dictated to her husband a book called “Blasphemy” with hopes of giving money to her family while she sits in prison, Here’s one excerpt of an reader’s  comments about her life. “

The true, heartbreaking story of the woman who kept her humanity in the face of unbelievable cruelty and injustice.” Asia Bibi was sentenced to hang by Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, laws which allow innocent people to be accused and punished unjustly. Many have spoken for her including the Pope yet three years on and she is no closer to freedom. What can we do? I asked this question over and over. When tens of thousands of people can gather to call for the death of one woman, where are the crowds to call for her release? If the west is so large and so strong why can’t we free her?”

Bibi was working in the field and became thirsty and went to the nearest well to get a drink of water. Two other women saw her drinking from the well and called it Blasphemy  Bibi’s life turned upside down. A large crowd accosted her, and she was found guilty to be sentenced to hang. Two public official spoke out against this unjust sentence and were murdered. A Pakistan government official spoke about the unfairness of Bibli’s imprisonment. She later was murdered.

Bibli was moved by the Pakistan government out of embarrassment and placed in a remote prison with hopes someone would poison her. Her family live in fear and in hiding. Bibi dictated this story to her husband for four of the many years she stays in jail. The book is called, Blasphemy: A Memoir: Sentenced to Death Over a Cup of Water Paperback and Kendal by(Asa Bibli, Author,  Anne-Isabelle Tollet,  Author) http://www.Amazon.com

I hope those of you who read this blog will consider the buying the paperback or get it on Kendal. This is something we can all do to in a small way  help this poor family.

Consider

I given you a few incidents with many more occurrences found if a goggle search is made. I described only a few of the atrocities of what is taking place in our world. What surprised me is murder by an Islamists in this country. I have a hunch this is only an genesis of what will come to myr/your nearest neighborhood.

Remember what the professor said we are nothing but property and expendable if we refuse to convert to  Islam. I wonder how many of us are going to for the sake of our belieft/our religious beliefs be willing to watch someone chop off the head of our daughters or grand daughters?

Please leave me your comments. I’d love to read them. Until the next time, we connect which is set for Sunday, September 22, God Bless you and this country.
