Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I feel the need to speak about something. Something that is very serious.
It doesn't concern other people. It concerns, me.
In the past, I've rarely mentioned that I have had things happen where Muslims have been approaching me. In various ways. Ways, that I believe were meant to be terrorizing to me.
I won't go into details, here on LwL. At least not to do about things in the past. Even though I did talk about these things with our Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
However, last week, I had a couple of things happen, once again.
Before I begin letting you know what happened, I need to say that I've been approached by many men, on Facebook (FB). Men, who just want to be friends. And, men who are looking for someone to love.
One such fellow chatted with me. He let me know he lives in USA (I won't say where).
This man seemed to be very nice to chat with. At least, in some ways.
Then, as he told me places he had travelled to, I asked him why he went to a place that was Islamic.
Instead of letting me know why he had travelled there, he got angry with me. I asked him if he was Muslim. He got even more angry.
I realized he was probably a scammer. Someone who claimed to be Christian, but probably wasn't. I unfriended him.
It was then that I seriously wondered if he was another Muslim, trying to get to know me, by lying to me. Someone who might possibly hurt me, or terrorize me.
You may be wondering why I would think this.
Well, other things have happened in the past, just like I previously mentioned. Plus, something else happened to me, last week.
Around the same time as with that scammer, another one approached me.
I won't give the name of the page that was used to contact me with. It wasn't a person's name. It actually referred to a city, here in Ontario.
That person claimed to be interested in meeting with me for coffee. To get to know me, and become good friends.
After asking the person's name, I was only given a first name that would be suitable for either males or females. No last/family name.
So, I checked on the site being used to contact me through, by messaging on FB. The site said it was 'female'.
I asked if the person was male or female. The response was they were 'male'.
Realizing that person was a liar, I didn't let them know I found out the truth.
I asked if the person was Christian. In the response, they refused to tell me. But, did tell me they were concerned about peace. That person apparently likes... peace. Much like most Muslims say they like.
However, they did let me know they knew about some people in the Bible. The way the referral was made (sorry, I'm not releasing that information), let me know that the person was most likely, Muslim.
Then, on SONday, a real-life friend of mine, who is also on FB, let me know that city name wanted to become friends with her. She felt the person wanted to know about me. She refused friendship.
I'm glad she let me know she had also checked out their site on FB. I went there again, and found there was information about relationships with Muslims. Not people. Islamic sites.
It was then, when I knew the Holy Spirit had truly led me to believe the truth. Truth, that I was being approached by a Muslim, once again.
A Muslim, who insisted on meeting with me. Of which, I refused, and stopped chatting with.
Am I saying these things were threats to me? I can't say that. Except, I wonder why they lied. Why that last fellow insisted on meeting with me.
I can only imagine, it may have possibly been to threaten me. Possibly, hurt me. Or, possibly even kill me... but, only if that was the plan. I truly have no idea.
However, do I find this upsetting (if this were really the truth)?
Well, in some ways, yes. And, in some ways, no.
I must admit, I do not love my life.
If you know me, or if you've read LwL and/or the book I authored, Love Never Fails You... you will surely know that I've experienced a lot of pain, and suffering in this life.
I must admit, that in some ways I hate my life.
Thinking of this, brought to mind, John 12:25, "He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal."
When a true Christian reads God's Word, the Bible... they come to realize that they will suffer. And, need to overcome. Just as Jesus said we can do, because He did.
As I said, I do not love my life. It's been a horrible experience. But, understanding God's Word, means that I will not lose eternal life, for I truly hate my life, in this world.
Does this mean I'd be happy if I were to be hurt and/or killed by Muslims, who hate me for speaking truth about Islam? No.
For this is not what people would want. Christian, or not.
However, Heaven is good. Especially, for eternity.
What a blessing that will be, for me.
Will it be for you?
Are you trusting in/believing upon Jesus Christ? Have you repented of the sin in your life? Have you committed your life to our Lord?
Hopefully, you have.
If not, you'll suffer for eternity in Hell, when you lose your life, here on this earth.
If you have, and have a relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ, then I shall one day see you in Heaven.
The choice is yours.
Until next time...
