Before I begin writing here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I feel I need to express the fact that had my now deceased husband Gordon lived, today would have been his birthday. May you enjoy this special day, and indeed every day, in heaven with Jesus, Gordon. xoxo
In yesterday's LwL entry, I wrote about how some people are for us, and some against us.
If you've been a reader of LwL for any amount of time, you'll be aware that I speak up for truth.
So does my previous pastor, Donald McKay, who now pastors at Bloomfield Hills Baptist Church, in Michigan, USA. He also teaches about Islam.
Please, I ask you to take the time to listen to a sermon pastor McKay preached April 28, 2013. Here is a link: http://www.bloomfieldchurch.org/interact/audio/wake-america
In addition, here is an article entitled, 20 dead in Muslim attack on Christian Funeral that I will share with you, as it was published on The Commentator, http://www.thecommentator.com/article/3445/20_dead_in_muslim_attack_on_christian_funeral
At least 20 people have been murdered in a violent attack on a Christian funeral in central Nigeria's Taraba state on Friday. A round-the-clock curfew is now in place as a result of the "Muslim mob" action, according to a report by the Agence France Presse.
An aid worker told the AFP, "We have recovered 20 bodies from the violence so far," adding that the unrest had occurred in the town of Wukari, some 125 miles from the state capital Jalingo.
"We are still going round the town in search of more bodies," he said on condition of anonymity. AFP reports that the source was not authorised to speak to the media about death tolls.
A curfew has been imposed in the area, said officials, in an effort to contain the violence.
Residents reported that Friday's violence erupted when the funeral procession of a traditional chief from the predominantly Christian Jukun ethnic group marched through a Muslim neighbourhood chanting slogans, which Muslims viewed as an act of provocation.
Tensions have been on the rise in the mostly Christian town of Wukari since February, when a dispute over the use of a football pitch between Muslim and Christian soccer teams set off sectarian riots that claimed several lives.
No matter what the cause was, do you honestly believe that there was any justification in this? I don't.
Here is another article entitled, Persecuted Pastors Attacked, Stabbed in Tanzania: http://www.charismanews.com/world/39891-persecuted-pastors-attacked-stabbed-in-tanzania
There are articles like these in the news, every day. Maybe not on our mainstream media; after all, they don't really like to report on issues like these.
Yet, there are people who read articles or hear on the news that these things are happening, and still refuse to accept the fact that Islam is not peaceful.
Please, take a few minutes to listen/watch John MacArthur's Youtube video entitled, Islam In The Last Days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDxBYCgua0s&feature=player_embedded
In it, he explains how Muslims think. And, about the teaching of Islam.
The best part is that he explains how Islamic teaching relates to Christian teaching of the Bible. You will truly have your eyes opened.
Well, it's time to wake up! Open your eyes! Take the cotton out of your ears! Hear and see the truth!
Speaking of truth, I came across a Bible verse that stuck out in my mind. Acts 26:18, "To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me."
Whether or not you are saved, if you are having trouble seeing, believing and understanding the truth of what is happening in our world, I pray that God will open your eyes, so you can see the truth.
Truth of this world. And, His truth. Through of salvation, through Jesus Christ, my Lord.
And do your work, for Him. Pass along the truth, so that others can have the blinders removed from their eyes. And, pray.
Pray... for all to come to Christ.
Until next time...
