Evil...

It's been a while since I discussed here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), about wicked things happening.

No, they are not happening to me.   At least not, what I will be discussing, here.

As you're probably aware, I've been recovering from major surgery.  Even though I've been watching television (TV), I've tried to not watch and/or listen to news programmes. 

Why?

Well, it's mainly due to the fact that it upsets me, hearing about things that happen, here in Canada.  And/or, in other countries around the world.

Like what I became aware of, recently.

A Facebook (FB) friend made a posting about the Nigerian school girls who were kidnapped.  The posting included a link to an article by The National Post, discussing the issue.

Here is a link, so you can watch and/or listen to it:  http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/05/12/nigeria-school-girls-shown-in-boko-haram-video-offered-in-exchange-for-imprisoned-militants/

There is another situation that requires God's help.

It involves a pregnant woman, whose mom was Christian, but whose dad was Muslim.  From what I've read, her dad left the marriage and she was raised by her mom, as a Christian... and never as a Muslim.

Now, her life has changed, drastically.

Even though I am Canadian and not American, I receive e-mails from the American Center for Law and Justice,  www.aclj.org.

Here is a message I received recently:

Lynn,
Meriam Ibrahim faces death. Martin, her American toddler, is imprisoned and sick.
He could lose his mother and be turned over to the very radical Islamists who hung her.
A judge in Sudan ordered Meriam to renounce her Christian faith or die. She's refused, saying, "I will remain a Christian."
She's pregnant, and once her American baby is born, she'll be flogged and then executed.
Prayer and public pressure are Meriam and her American children's only hope.
Already over 200,000 have signed our petition for her freedom.
We're working directly at the U.N. and with Members of Congress to save her life.
This is a death penalty case. Your voice can make the difference, but time is of the essence. This is your final chance to sign before we send our letter to Sudan.
Sign Our Urgent Petition Today: Save Meriam.

P.S. If you've already signed, please forward this message and share it on Facebook today.
Please know, I have prayed for this woman.  And, for others, who are being persecuted for their faith.

Even though prayer is powerful, and God is in control of all things, I believe we must stand up for our faith and be counted.

I believe that we must stand up for what is right.  And, not for evil.

And, believe me, the world is filled with evilness.  It's filled with those who hurt us, greatly.

Just as we read in Psalm 37:12-13, "The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.  The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming."

Yes, his day is coming.  Just as my day is coming.  And, so is yours.

Each of us will one day stand before Christ, in judgement.

But, here on earth, we must do what we must do.  Please, stand up for what is right.

Plant those seeds for Christ, that God commanded us to do. 

But also, stand up and speak up, for what is evil in this world.  There are many unsaved who have no idea what kind of evilness is evolving, especially through Islam.

And, pray.


Until next time...
