It seems that this week, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), has been a week of prayer. Needed prayer.
Today, is another one of those days. Much prayer is needed.
Here is a link by usnews.com for you to read the article entitled, Nigerian Army Rescues Nearly 300 Women and Girls: http://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2015/04/28/nigerian-army-says-it-has-rescued-200-girls. This article says that none are from Chibok, who disappeared about a year ago.
This article is filled with information. I didn't copy/paste it all, but did a little, as follows:
Boko Haram has kidnapped an unknown number of girls, women and young men to be used as sex slaves and fighters. Many have escaped or been released as Boko Haram has fled a multinational offensive that began at the end of January.
A military source who was in Sambisa told The Associated Press that some of the women rescued Tuesday fought back, and that Boko Haram was using armed women as human shields, putting them as their first line of defense.
The Nigerian troops managed to subdue them and rounded them all up, and some said they were forced to fight for Boko Haram, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
Boko Haram also has used girls and women as suicide bombers, sending them into crowded market places and elsewhere.
If you read this whole article and watched the video, you'll know that women, girls and even some young men are being used by this Muslim group, in ways that are truly unloving.
Please... pray for all being affected by those who stand up for Islam, for they are truly suffering in this life.
Yes, this may not yet be happening, here in North America, but people are being misled here. People are being told that Islam is truly a religion of peace... when the truth is, it is NOT.
Christian prayer and Bible verses used to be part of opening ceremonies in school, when I was young. Today, this is not allowed. It is claimed today, that religion is not allowed in public schools.
Yet, in some areas schools are allowing things to be done, by Muslims, that may lead those non-Muslim children astray.
Like what you'll see if you read this article by conservativepost.com entitled, American school forcing girls to follow Muslim dress code, wear head scarves, cover ankles: http://conservativepost.com/american-school-forcing-girls-to-follow-muslim-dress-code2/.
Why are they doing this?
Why are schools trying to mislead people into thinking Islam is okay?
It is NOT!
Don't believe me??
Read this article by cbn.com entitled, Ex-Muslim: Koran Revealed a Religion I Did Not Like: http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/world/2015/April/Ex-Muslim-Koran-Revealed-a-Religion-I-Did-Not-Like/?cpid=:ID:-1250-:DT:-2015-04-28-12:03:11-:US:-AB1-:CN:-CP1-:PO:-NC1-:ME:-SU1-:SO:-FB1-:SP:-NW1-:PF:-VI1-.
Hopefully, you watched the video that was linked to that article. If you did, you'll understand that this was an ex-Muslim, who told the truth.
You see, as I've said in the past, Muslims are taught to not question anything the Qur'an (Koran, in English) says. But, this woman did.
This ex-Muslim woman knew and understood that what she read in the Qur'an was exactly the reason why those who are fighting and killing others, are doing so. She even admitted info that I have claimed was truth, and in the past was accused of being hateful.
She said that those who are being involved in groups like ISIS, Boko Haram, and others, are doing so, because they are truly committed Muslims, who have read the Qur'an, and are doing what they were taught true Muslims would be doing.
As this woman said, if all Muslims knew and understood the truth about Islam, many would leave it behind. Just as she did.
For this, I praise God!
Much prayer is needed.
After all, not everyone trusts in/believes upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Especially, not Muslims... whose prophet has taught them how to live sinfully, by fighting and killing others. Much like Satan.
Thinking about this, reminded me of 2 Corinthians 11:14, "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."
In my opinion, and in the opinion of many others who understand how Islam works, the angel of light has promoted himself to be who Muslims believe their god is.
Even though, he is NOT the same God as we Christians believe upon.
So please, pray.
And, plant those seeds for Christ. Just as God told us to do.
Not just with Muslims. But, also with other people who do not believe that Jesus is the way to Heaven.
After all, God told us... that we are saved by grace (alone), through faith (alone), in Christ (alone), for there is nothing we humans can do, to lead ourselves to gain salvation, other than by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
May God bless you, for the work you do for Him.
Until next time...
