Remembrance... of Marathon Bombing & More...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I will be writing about the Boston Marathon bombing that took place a April 15th, 2013 even though today is April 14th.  Tomorrow, you'll understand why.

If you'd like to read about it, please click on this posting by en.wikipedia.org regarding the Boston Marathon bombinghttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Marathon_bombing.

By now, I believe most people have watched videos of the bombing, but in case you have not yet seen what happened, here is a Youtube link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=046MuD1pYJg&feature=player_embedded

One reason I decided to delay writing about the bombing at first, was because I wondered if it was terrorist activity.  However, it turned out that it was done by Muslims, as a terrorist activity.  I'm sure you read about or heard about that on news broadcasts.

It didn't take long before I read Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah celebrate Boston terror attackhttp://www.israelnewsagency.com/bostonmarathonterrorattackpalestiniansdancingcandygazaobamahamasislamicjihadhezbollahiran48041513.html

If you would like to read the full article, just click on the link above.  I must say that after reading the first few lines:
 
By Israel News Agency Staff
Jerusalem, Israel --- April 15, 2013 … Shortly after terror bombs exploded and murdered over 12 people at the Boston Marathon, members of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah were reported to be dancing in the streets of Gaza, handing out candies to passerbys.
A number of Palestinians had danced in the street in celebration of the 9/11 attacks in 2001 on the World Trade Center and Washington resulting in the deaths of thousands of Americans.
The head of an Islamic terror organization in Jordan - the Muslim Salafi group says he’s “happy to see the horror in America” after the bombing attacks in Boston.
 
I realized that Islamic people, were celebrating the bombing issue that happened in Boston, MA, USA.
 
The fact is, we need to be praying for all unbelievers.  Especially, those who want to rid the world of Christians and other groups, like Muslim believers in Islam do.

Some Muslims have actually come to Christ, and gained salvation.  For this, I praise God! 

This next article is one that I am happy about.  It's from Charisma News and is entitled, Muslim Woman Receives Jesus Revelation Through Visionhttp://www.charismanews.com/world/40892-muslim-woman-receives-jesus-revelation-through-vision.

Why am I happy some Muslims have come to Christ?

It's not just because they will no longer attack Christians, Jews and other infidels (non-believer of Islam).  It's mainly due to the fact that I pray that all who are non-Christian, will gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Thinking of this, brought to mind Acts 16:31, "And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house."

Yes, those who believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, shall be saved. 

However, this does not mean that those who believe Jesus existed, become saved.  Even Muslims believe He existed.  And, He's written in their holy books, like the Qur'an (Koran).

Believing upon Him, also means that you need to trust in Him.  And, that you need to be committed to Him.

My friend, I pray you have committed yourself to Jesus Christ.  For if you have, I'll be glad to see you in Heaven, some day!


Until next time...
