Prayer Alert- CUFI: Chemical Weapons Being Scattered Throughout Syria
LISTEN NOW! Greg, John and Pat discuss a recent prayer alert from Christians United for Israel that stated that a highly secretive Syrian military unit known as Unit 450 has been scattering and hiding chemical weapons throughout Syria. They continue to share how nothing has changed with our enemy; he still wants to kill, steal and destroy. Christians in Syria are being persecuted. Some have been burned and have even been beheaded. You can’t be diplomatic with evil. At the same time of these great atrocities there is a ray of hope as Charisma News shares what is happening in Syria in the midst of Christians being persecuted. Charisma News reports that so many Muslims are fleeing Syria and are running for refuge. “Many of the Muslim families came to our church, and now our church has 2,000 families of refugees. They told us, “We don’t know if this is the real Islam.” We said, “Yes, this is Islam. This is what they teach in Quran.” They said, “We don’t want to follow Muhammad anymore. We don’t want Islam. We want to know the real God.” So we give them New Testaments, and we follow up with them, have meetings, preach the gospel, and then we give them food. Thank God, we saw how He is moving among those families that before we couldn’t reach because they don’t even know there are Christians in this country. They are covered; it’s very hard. So we thank God, because everything happens because of His goodness.” They encourage us to continue to pray for the persecuted church in Syria and throughout the world.
BIG Difference: Islam Religion ,Earthly Kingdom, Christianity and the Kingdom of God that Spreads in the hearts of Men
Greg, John and Pat discuss the big difference between Islam and Christianity. CBN reports that’s Islamic extremists have forced Christians in a town in Egypt to pay a daily Jizya tax which in U.S. dollars can be as little as $29 or $203 per week! Also on VFNRadio we have spoken about Zakat during the segmentWashington DC Bully Pulpit-Don’t let them push you to do Wrong, which is when the Quran tells the Muslims to give money in an obligatory way. Some of these monies go towards the “Jihadist type war”. Not too long ago President Obama was trying to make it that so Zakat could fall under a 501c3 status so that giving in this way would fall under tax exemption. Islam and Christianity are very different as Islam is governmental in nature as Muslims goals are a Caliphate where everyone one comes under Sharia law. The Quran teaches that there are only 3 things that can happen to those who are not Muslims. They have the choice to convert, submit to servitude, or die. Christianity is not about an earthly physical kingdom but rather the Kingdom of God that expands in the hearts of men. The kingdom of God expands when we Christians share Jesus with others and they accept Jesus as Lord. Every Christian is a kingdom container all they have to do is release the kingdom with others.
