Grace? Grace!

There's something I feel I need to let you know about, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's something that I feel is wonderful.  It truly touched my heart.

It's what was commented on an article I read.  Here is a link for the article by that is entitled, Isis Assassin Meets Jesus The Moment He Runs To Kill Christian Evangelist - Powerful Encounter!:

Even the title truly made me feel good.  Hopefully, you read the article.  In case you didn't, I decided to share with you the article (I copied/pasted):

Even an ISIS terrorist isn't too far from God's love, truth, healing and redemption!

The so called Islamic State, or ISIS, is a militant organization that emerged as an offshoot of al Qaeda in 2014, by Jordanian Islamist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. It was a major player in the insurgency against the US-led forces that toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003.  It quickly took control of large parts of Iraq and Syria, raising its black flag in victory and declaring the creation of a caliphate and imposing strict Islamic rule.

Just hearing the word ‘ISIS’ makes many tremble.  There has been much media coverage about them, with reports of deadly suicide bombings and merciless persecution of Christians. However, this story is different, it has a silver lining and hope.  This is a story of something gloriously done by God in the midst of chaos and violence in the lives of people who joined the ISIS movement.

From darkness to light, violence to kindness, hopelessness to hope.  Our God is so good.  His heart is that ALL will find Him.  He loves all people, no matter what their religious or cultural background happens to be.  He wants to see us living joyously and victoriously in step with Him.  He delights in us and wants us to delight in Him!

This is a story of an ISIS assassin, Fadi from Syria who set out to kill a Christian evangelist, Abraham who was on their hit list.  But upon approaching the evangelist, a sudden occurrence made the assassin shake and he dropped his knife to the ground.  What happened next will give you goose bumps and leave you in awe and wonder! Watch the video below as Shaun Feucht of Bethel Music shares this amazing testimony from Voice of the Martyrs.

In case you couldn't access that article, here is a link to the YouTube video that was included in the article, that is entitled:  ISIS Assassin Meets Jesus | Testimony by Sean Feucht

Hopefully, you watched the video, also.  If you did, you'll realize all of what happened.

It's so wonderful that the gift of salvation, was received by that ISIS assassin.

Thinking of that, made me think of Ephesians 2:8, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:".

Amen!  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

It was such a blessing that Jesus spoke to that Muslim ISIS assassin, and changed his heart, so that he gain salvation, for he was then saved through faith.  And, it was truly a gift of God.


Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
