If you've read Life with Lynnie (LwL) over the last couple of days, you'll know that a Christian brother in the Lord, died.
If you've read LwL recently, you'll also know how my deceased husband Gordon, and I helped support him, when he first came to Canada.
Yes, it was shocking to me to read that he died.
While looking on the internet, I found a couple of YouTube videos that you may want to watch. Both give information about Zachariah 'Zak' Anani.
Here is a YouTube link entitled, Muslim Militia Leader Islam Zachariah Anani Christian martyr: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqbIS23EIMw.
Here is another YouTube link entitled, The Terrorist Who Met God: The True Story of Zachariah Anani: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHwWv3Jrn18.
If you go onto YouTube, you'll probably see more videos regarding Zak.
Just so you know, I didn't just meet Zak.
His wife eventually came to Canada with their children. I saw her at a worship service, along with his two (2) daughters.
Prior to their arrival into Canada, Zak had told us how one (1) of his daughters had been attacked by Muslims. Yes, his wife and family were also Christians.
When I saw his daughter who had just become a teenager, I realized who she was.
How did I know?
We had been told that his daughter's face had been cut open by a Muslim terrorist.
Her face was cut open from one side of her face, up near her hairline. The cut went down to the bottom of her face, like half an X. Meaning the knife opening was on the other side of her face, near her chin.
This had broken my heart, when I first heard about what had happened to his daughter. When I saw her, it was even more heartbreaking.
Even so, I was happy she hadn't died. I praised God that He kept her alive, and was able to bring her with her other family members, to be with her dad.
After being here not too long, her mom returned to Lebanon. She didn't want to stay in Canada.
Apparently, from what I heard, Zak's wife liked the fact that he had come to Canada to stop having his life at risk.
But, that wasn't the case. Zak was being threatened by Muslims... even here in Windsor, Ontario. This was what I heard was the reason Zak's wife left Canada.
This was truly upsetting to me when this happened.
However, I was grateful that God protected Zak. And, Zak didn't seem to be afraid.
Just as we read, in Isaiah 41:10, "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."
We are to fear not, for He is with us: we need to be not dismayed, for He is our God: He will strengthen us; yes, He will help us and He will uphold us with the right hand of His righteousness.
For this, I am thankful. Truly thankful.
Zak came across to me, my now deceased husband, and many other people, as a brother in the Lord, who was thankful to God for saving him.
I'm saved, too.
Do you know that in order to become saved, you need to trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ?
If you haven't gained salvation yet, please read God's Word, the Bible... and begin in the New Testament. There you'll come to realize that God has provided for you.
Hopefully, you'll gain salvation.
If you do, then some time in the future, I'll see you in Heaven, instead of you going to spend eternity in Hell, separated from God... with no chance of escape.
And, while you're in Heaven, you'll will see Zak.
Until next time...
