Jihad? Jihad!

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

It's about something that is happening, here in Canada.  Well, about some of the people.

Please click on the article by boom1019.com that is entitled, ISIS video allegedly shows doctor from Canada urging 'jihad'https://boom1019.com/news/4879291/isis-video-doctor-jihad/.

Here is some info from the article (I copied/pasted):
A video released Wednesday by the Somali branch of ISIS featured a man it described as a doctor from Canada urging jihad.
A video released Wednesday by the ISIS affiliate in Somalia showed a man it said was a doctor from Canada urging supporters to “get on the path of jihad.”
The 15-minute propaganda video introduced him as Dr. Youssef Al Majeerteyn and said he had “died bravely.” A man then spoke to the camera in Canadian-sounding English.
Wearing a stethoscope and seated in front of a rifle and ISIS flag, he encouraged “brothers and sisters” to join the terrorist group, which has a small presence in Somalia.

“What will you say to Allah on the day of judgment when you are asked what have you done for the ummah while your fellow Muslims are being bombed by the kuffar and murtadeen day and night?” he said.
“Get on the path of jihad and book yourself the highest places in jannah .”
It did not say how he died but the United States military has been conducting airstrikes in Somalia targeting ISIS and Al Shabab, which claimed responsibility for last week’s attack in Nairobi.
Canadian terrorism researcher Amarnath Amarasingam said the video was one of the first to acknowledge that Western foreign fighters were active in the so-called Somalia province of ISIS.
“I suspect we may see more of this going forward as ISIS provinces outside Syria and Iraq start to attract some foreign fighters,” said Amarasingam, a senior fellow at the Institute for Strategic Dialogue.
“It won’t be in great numbers like Syria but there will be a trickle, I’m sure.”

More than a decade ago, a handful of Canadians travelled to Somalia to join Al Shabab. Syria and Iraq later became the preferred destination for would-be jihadists.
But with ISIS dislodged from most of Iraq, and surrounded in northeastern Syria, extremists appear to be attempting to join the affiliates that have sprung up in Africa and Asia.
On Monday, the FBI arrested three Michigan men on terrorism charges. One was caught at the airport in Grand Rapids as he was allegedly leaving to join ISIS in Somalia.
Wow!  Is it amazing to you?

It is to me!

Even though evilness was happening, God helped those people realize that they have lost.  Lost what they truly wanted to do.

After all, those who belong to God, were able to be helped by Him.

Thinking of that, made me think of John 15:7, "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.".

Amen!  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

I abide in Him.  I do whatever I can for whatever I believe He wants me to do.

And, He helps me.

Why?

I belong to Him.

Do you?

If you haven't yet, trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, and you'll not just gain salvation and everlasting life, you'll receive so much more.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
