Mr. Gadhafi is now dead and the transitional government is already moving in. Not for democracy but for an unholy theocracy. They are calling for Sharia Law. Sharia Law allows for great persecution for Jews and Christians. It calls for the killing and beheading of the infidels. Parts of Sharia Law is the worse kind of human rights violations known to man, but many in the world turn a deaf ear to the cries of those who suffer under its pain. If you have a voice or speak out against it; you are quickly hauled off and put to death. This is not the justice of the living God! This is not what the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob intended for mankind. Sin brings it own judgment, and we need not to help it along. If you have to kill people who are not of your faith then your faith is shallow and you really don't believe in it.
Look at the link below. I warn there are some graphic images.
I have met some pretty nice Muslims during my travels. Some even listened to the message of Christ. We had a Muslim on my last trip out of the States who was a very nice taxi driver.( No Stereotype intended) He took us where we needed to be and was very generous in speech and mannerisms. I have to believe that most Muslims don't agree with this type of extreme within the Sharia Law. Someone once said, " All it takes for evil to thrive is for good men to sit back and do nothing..."
Lybia just got free from a horrorable dictator. A man who killed his own people and robbed them of their humanity, but now they are getting something worse. Now Christians will be severly presucted even more. We are seeing this in Eygpt and other nations who have overthrown their governements and replaced it with Islam. Syria will be the next country that will meet that fate.
We helped to free Iraq and Afghanistan from horrible dictators and Islamic extremists to only see those countries replace their freedom with bondage. Christians have suffered worse under the new leadership of those countries than they did in the previous. Afghanistan has officially no christian churches in it's country any longer. No Schools, no churches, they have all been wiped out on an official level. The the church of the living God is still present but not recognized by the government. This country ranks third on the Open Doors World Watch List. ( A list stating the worst countries that persecute Christians. )
Christians we need to pray more than ever. The Muslim agenda is growing. I read a story from Charisma Magazine which talked about a teenage Christian who was beheaded in Somalia just because of his faith. The Muslims there have vowed to eradicate any Christians left in their nation. The parents of this young man had to flee for their lives and could not even give him a proper burial. We desperately need to pray for the revelation of Jesus to be present in all countries around the world.
Matthew 16:13-17 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?" (14) They answered, "Some say you are John the Baptizer, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." (15) He asked them, "But who do you say I am?" (16) Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God!" (17) Jesus replied, "Simon, son of Jonah, you are blessed! No human revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven revealed it to you.
Peter caught the revelation of who Jesus was and is. The world needs this revelation more and more today.
Sharia Law is trying to hit even my country in places like Detroit and other stronghold Muslim cities. No country is immune.
I personally love the Muslim people. I don't agree with their faith obliviously but they have a right to believe what they want to believe. Muslims have contributed in a good way to modern society today and we can honor this truth. I admire the devotion the Muslims have in their faith something that is sometimes lacked in the Christian faith. They pray 5 times a day, we can't even get Christians to pray for 5 minutes. I know in my heart that some Muslims are not evil or destructive but the interpretation from some over the Sharia Law is very dangerous. I have personally read some of the KORAN. There are some similarities of what we believe in the word of God that are good.
We must be careful. We must pray more than ever. We must share our faith with those who desire to listen and respect those who don't agree with us.I don't agree with the Muslims faith as a whole but that does not mean I am going to kill them for it. That is ridiculous and ludicrous. My Faith has a stronger foundation than that.
If you want the world to stay the same, then sit back and do nothing. If you want to make some minute difference then rise up and take a stand. There is still hope. Yes, Christ is returning soon. Yes, the world is heading in the wrong direction, but where in God's word our we commanded to quit? We have a revelation that no other religion in the world can lay claim to. Our Savior came to earth fulfilling generations of prophecies about him. He lived, died, rose again from the grave and declared His definite return. His body is not in a glass case or on display in some historical museum. He is alive and sitting on the right hand side of the Father! We serve a Living Savior who will one day come back to this planet and overcome the diseased growth of evil. Rejoice brothers and sisters! And look to the heavens for our redemption draws nigh. Until that time we must be diligent. We must be about our Father's business. We must be seekers and be those who obtain his kingdom.
