Evilness... Towards Others... and Me!


Hopefully, you've read recent Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries.  If so, you'll know I've been discussing the situation in Sudan, Africa, regarding Meriam Ibrahim.  She's the Christian woman I wrote about; please read past entries, if you're not aware of her situation.

As I discussed in the past, after people like me had posted and encouraged others to stand up for what is right, the Sudan government claimed that she would be released.  Later, after sending out that message, the claimed release that was to take place, was revoked. 

When I posted about Meriam Ibrahim again on Facebook (FB), I did it differently.  Normally, I didn't say anything other than please help her.  But, that day, I was truly upset and wanted people to realize the truth about Islam.  So, here's what I posted on FB:

(Lynn McKenzie) has posted about Meriam Ibrahim recently several times, asking for prayer and for those to contact ACLJ and sign a petition. I also e-mailed my Canadian Prime Minister asking for help for her and her children. A few days ago, the governme...nt in Sudan announced they would release Meriam Ibrahim; then, shortly afterwards, they renounced the statement. She is still being held and is still scheduled to be flogged 100 times, before hanging/murdering her. Why? Because she's Christian and would not renounce Jesus Christ. How peaceful and loving Islam is, isn't it? Wow! Would this be acceptable if the reverse were to happen? What if Christians held a Muslim woman and her children, threatening to flog and murder her? I believe Hell on earth would happen. Please... speak up... share... contact your government officials and insist they help Meriam Ibrahim, and her children who also will not be returned to their American dad. Thank you. Blessings...

I cannot even imagine how awful it was for Meriam to be jailed and shackled during her pregnancy and delivery, while waiting to be flogged and hanged...  How awful!
 
Yes, some FB friends posted remarks in support of Meriam Ibrahim.  For this, I was grateful.  And, for prayer.  Thank you, friends. 

You need to know that on June 5th, I received a private message on FB, from a Muslim.  Here's what the message said:

Dear Lynn It is a great privilege for us to invite you to Human Right conference meeting held in U.S.A /Dakar contact us secretariat@cirwo.org
 
I responded:
May I ask why you want to invite me?

When I didn't get a response quickly, I googled the group he claimed to be a member of.  After all, his FB page shows information so that people can think he's participating as secretariat@cirwo.org, United Nations Human Rights office of the High Commissioner.

The whole thing is a scam!!!

Instead of finding a link, I found sites telling people that it is a scam.  Here's a link to one site talking about it being a scam:  http://www.uia.org/content/5817.  Here's what I found:

About the Fraud Monitor
An increasing number of email scams are using NGOs, International NGOs, development agencies, meetings, international conferences etc as the hook to defraud or cheat unsuspecting recipients. Always use caution when responding to or acting on unsolicited bulk email or paper mail.
A checklist, compiled by the International Dance Council CID-UNESCO, is also available to help distinguish between real and fictitious events and non-profit organizations, claiming national or international status.

Then, I read the main message, as follows:

Wow!  Whoever set this up, has obviously done their best to scam people.
But, not me. God didn't let them scam me.I praise God for protecting me. And, mindfully giving me the ability to discern truth from lies. Especially, since liars and others who are not following Christ, will have their part of the lake of fire.
 
Just a we read, in Revelation 21:6-8, "And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
How grateful I am for God's Word, the Bible. How thankful I am that He revealed His truth to us!Without His truth, we would be battling life in a very different way. But, with His truth, we can discern what is acceptable to Him, and what is not.
Please, pray for all who are being persecuted for their faith.  Pray for all who are being affected by Islam.
On Sunday, on Facebook, I saw a message that touched my heart.  Even though I have known that Christian believers have been affected, I was grateful to see that a person posted the following article. 
Please understand.  As Islam grows and becomes more and more interested in taking over, people are being persecuted.  Not just Christians.  All who refuse to believe in Islam are... and will be persecuted... and/or murdered.  Please pray.

Father, I come before you on bended knee, because You are my God. You are everything to me, and to all who love and adore You. I pray in the name of Jesus, that You will save each and every person reading this entry, if they are not saved, already. I pray You will reveal the truth You have shown some of us, to all. For it seems that not everyone has gotten to know truth. Truth about You. And, truth about Islam. I pray in a special way for all who are being persecuted by Muslims.  And, I pray for Meriam Ibrahim, her children, her husband, and her family. For this, and so much more, I thank you. And, pray this, in the name of my Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.


Until next time...
