Musings On the Eve of the 9th of Av

The opening of the 2012 Olympics is tonight and the world will be watching.  There are videos circulating that show mass killings at the games, based on an Illuminatti card game that showed up in the 1990’s.  What is interesting about this card game is that it shows the Twin Towers being hit and collapsing, as well as the Gulf Oil Spill.   One card in the deck depicts Big Ben being destroyed.  The cards were in circulation before those events took place.  Added to this is the video that Gordy posted a few days ago that ties the occult into the opening ceremony at the Olympics.

Then we have the 9th of Av, a day that is historically catastrophic to Israel, as both the first and second Temple were destroyed on that day.  Tomorrow, Saturday, is the 9th of Av.

The Syrian civil war continues to escalate and Israel is preparing for a chemical weapon attack.  The Moslem Brotherhood has set its eyes on the rest of the Arab Gulf States in hope of creating an Islamic Caliphate.   There was a video that I posted in May, right before the Egyptian elections in which the fiery Imam, Hegazi, in front of tens of thousands of people gathered in Tahrir square, declares that Jerusalem will be the capital of the United Arab States.

There is also a report about the Batman Shooter, where a witness in the theater allegedly saw someone get up and go to the emergency door and open ut before Holmes entered.  There are reports of a second gas mask being found in the theater, as well as Holmes not remembering the shooting.  You may recall this is exactly what Sirhan Sirhan has stated for decades, claiming that he has no recollection of shooting RFK.

In closing today’s post.  Forty years ago 11 Israeli athletes were killed at the Olympic village.  Antisemitism is on the rise throughout Europe and with the bombing of Israeli tourist in Bulgaria last week, one wonders what the future holds. The Olympic committee has chosen not to have a moment of silence for the victims on this 40th anniversary.  I hope nothing happens over the weekend.  I pray that all will be OK and that peace will prevail.  I hope for an end to the war in Syria and elsewhere.  However, nothing would surprise me at this point.   As Chuck Missler states, It’s a managed agenda….

Here’s an update sent to me by Watcher Will.  It’s a quote from the late Bill Cooper and it speaks volumes.

Amazingly Bill Cooper, the author of Behold a Pale Horse, made the following statement on page 177 of the book.

“Can you imagine what will happen if Los Angeles is hit with a 9.0 quake, New York City is destroyed by a terrorist-planted atomic bombWorld War III breaks out in the Middle East, the banks and stock markets collapseExtraterrestrials land on the White House lawn, food disappears from the markets, some people disappear, the Messiah presents himself to the world, and all in a very short period of time? Can you imagine? The world power structure can, and will if necessary, make some or all of these things happen to bring about the New World Order.” ["Behold A Pale Horse"., p. 177-8]

    “There has NEVER been a time like it… nor shall there EVER be again… and if those days had not been shortened, no flesh would survive…”

    • I’m currently looking into this. If we count days 0-1 being the days of Noah. From Noah-to Great Tribulation as days 1-2 and then Tribulation to Jesus return as days 2-3 then you would have
      0-1 – ~1000yrs
      1-2 – ~5000yrs
      * 2-3 – ~ 3 1/2yrs (Days shortened)

      Just a thought

    • Kirk Domitrovic said

      “Days shortened” …does NOT mean days are shortened…

      IT MEANS: FULLNESS of the times alloted AND NOT ONE DAY LONGER.

      IT is translated wrongly. 7 YEAR TRIBULATION is what the time is.

      3 1/2 years 42 months 1,260 Days is the FIRST HALF plus

      The second half is the same. Revelation 11 makes it clear that the 2 witnesses

      fulfill their purpose in 1,260 days and then are KILLED IN JERUSALEM

      at the half way point….AND THEN … the devil is given FULL POWER

      over “the saints”…see Daniel 7:21-22…and these are NOT the Church.

      At mid point of TRIBULATION is also when the Abomination of Desolation

      is set up in Temple and THEN the JEWS ALIVE at that time FLEE !!!

      REASON: FROM THIS POINT ON (Matt 24:15) …1/2 way point of TRIB…

      it gets WORSE THAN EVER…see verse Matt 24:21-22. REMEMBER,

      the first holocaust with Hitler wiped out 1/3 of Jews Alive on the planet.

      The TRIBULATION will wipe out 2/3 of Jews Alive on the planet!!!

      see Zechariah 13:8-9 You see, God gives the promise to the Jews alive

      at the time of the TRIBULATION so that they would understand that there

      WOULD BE A REMNANT WHO WILL COME THROUGH THE FIRE

      of the TRIBULATION. IF satan could destroy all the Jews, then satan

      would prove God a liar and thus win. Obviously, God wins.

      Hope that clarifies things. My email if you need it … kirksmiles@yahoo.com

    Okay, my musings on some of the opening ceremony’s features. I am sure it is just my overactive imagination, but this is what struck me, not in any chronological order.

    -Of course, the illuminated pyramids. My daughter counted 13.
    -The theme of rural serfdom carried over into the industrial revolution, perhaps with the idea of the slavery being carried over into our addiction to music and entertainment. The images include illuminati harlequin-checkered dancers.
    -The iron-smelting river turning into a ring of molten fire: did that look like a giant sperm to anyone?
    -Because the next thing that happened, if I recall correctly, were giant rings of fire/light, coming in like huge UFO’s
    -Then they join into Olympic rings, which someone posted in a video telling they signify the Oracle of Apollo at Delphi, the symbol having been found in the last century and adopted for the games. Apollo is Apollyon, the antichrist, of Revelation. So the UFO rings of fire join to make Apollo’s symbol.
    –Then, the rings rain fire upon the awestruck masses. Isn’t that the whole Apollo/Hermes/Lucifer thing? Stealing fire from the gods (the light of knowledge) and bringing it to man? And the awestruck wonder of the crowd gazing at the rings, and the applause.

    Sperm= seed of the serpent
    Rings= UFO’s
    Olympic insignia= Apollo or antichrist
    Raining fire= He comes with lying wonders and ‘divine” gifts and knowledge.
    Crowd’s wonder= The worship of the beast

    Hope I’m wrong and it’s business as usual. I am starting to feel a little crazy.

    (I accidentally posted this on yesterday’s thread first, so I reposted here.)

    • Deirdre said

      Hi, I counted 14 lighted pyramids. There are 13 steps on the one dollar bill pyramid. The all seeing eye cap stone floating above b/c it has not landed yet. So the 14 pyramids could mean that antichrist has landed.

    • Linda said

      “landed” do you mean as on the 25TH when the man jumped the 6+6+6=18 …I saw a star faling from heaven…(I am prob. not saying it exact) and then on 7/27 BHO signed the Enhancement Act/Treat/Covenant/Agreement to make 2 States Palest. & Israel? He is here now and ready to Cap the Pyramid/Enlightenment for all the people(who will swear allegience to him!). The clock is now ticking for that cause?

      Whatever it means and it could be the AC has declared himself, I look for something TERRIBLE to transpire soon because everytime we try to take land from Israel(GOD’s land) HE takes some of our land!!!! 9TH of Av! Terrible foreboding! (for Israel) we are grafted in so we suffer also. I saw some things ? for 8/1 & 8/4. (so many videos=??)

    Any update from anyone on Rose of Kentucky?

  4. Ally said

    LA-please keep us updated on Rose! Still praying.
    Troy-If God is telling you to have children, then I would. But if its just your personal desire and you are trying to get him to come around to your point if view….I dunno, its getting really dark out here and you might want to rethink that. Believe me, there is nothing that hurts quite like looking into your own childs hungry little face when you have no food to eat nor safe place to sleep.

    I wish I had the reminders you guys get, a thing flitting by here or there. I always get sleep paralysis, right away call to Jesus and the
    demons go away.

    For a while they were in my dreams in disguise, but I knew. So in my dreams I called to Jesus or asked Him to send them to the abyss. and then I would awake.

    After that, I had one sleep paralysis where they touched me, I could feel it on my chest/shoulder and right away I awoke and audibly called to Jesus stopping it immediately.

    Hi Frank: have you had the “sleep paralysis” often? I have been having them on and off for over 2 years! I do the exact same thing – call on the Lord Jesus Christ and it goes away, but I have trouble even saying the entire name of Jesus for at least 20 seconds; once I can say his complete name, “they” go away – thought I was going crazy at first, but these things are real. What do you think is causing this to happen to us? thanks Gwen

    • I used to live in a place where I was constantly harrased by demons/aliens at night… Believe it or not, keeping an open Bible by my bed, AND, (seriously) having a fan running in the room… ceiling fan, box fan, whatever…. something about the Electro-magnetic motor, or maybe just Wind in general, I don’t know why or how… I just know that it works, and others have confirmed this!!!

    • Frank said

      I only get it once in a while.

      What causes it? Demons, lol.

      My recent one, I suspect its because I slept in a room a relative has done qigong in. I stupidly did not pray over the room, so I had a nocturnal visitor.

      Prior to that, demons in dreams, I couldn’t say. Perhaps I had some stronghold open to satan (that I’ve since taken to the Lord).

      my next most recent true sleep paralysis was when I had just started my blog two years ago. I wasn’t sure, and I was talking with gaz parker and he encouraged me to do it. So this one I think was the Lord allowing me to be tested to show His power and the authority of His so.

      Not long after that though, I woke up screaming. I had been looking at the cover to “Communion” (yeah, the alien one) and I had also been perhaps cocky about the previous sleep paralysis. I saw something either in a dream, like a really evil statue or something but in my room. Or else in my sleep I had seen my clothes hamper and translated it in my drea as a demonic thing. Either way, I clung tightly to Jesus that night!

      All that to say, sleep paralysis = demons and being a Christian and calling on Jesus when it comes will stop it. How to keep it from coming back permanently, I can’t say, but I always ask the Lord to sweep the house out and rebuke anything present and rebuke anything that comes in the night. I’ve even gone so far as to ask Him to send anything that comes in the night to the abyss, but I don’t know if that’s really Biblical or something I should do.

    HAS ISRAEL ENTERED INTO A COVENANT WITH DEATH ON JULY 27, 2012 THE 9TH OF AV???
    H.R. 4133: United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012

    Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Isa 28:15

    IT IS AMAZING THAT THIS OCCURRED ON JULY 27TH THE 9TH OF AV (TISH B’ AV) WHICH IS A DAY OF CALAMITY, WAILING, CRYING MOURNING AND TROUBLE FOR ISRAEL. MANY TRAGEDIES HAVE BEFALLEN ISRAEL ON THIS DAY: BOTH THE 1ST & 2ND TEMPLES WERE DESTROYED IN ISRAEL ON THIS DAY. WWI broke out on this day Aug 1, 1914 setting the stage for the HOLOCAUST. On the eve of TISH B’Av in 1942 marked the mass deportation of Jews from the Warsaw ghetto to Treblinka.

    And he shall CONFIRM the COVENANT with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
    Dan 9:27

    COULD THIS BE THE CONFIRMATION- STRENGTHENING OF THE COVENANT?
    Strongs H1396 CONFIRM- gabar- to make strong, STRENGTHEN, to BIND,
    Strongs H1285 COVENANT- bĕriyth- ALLIANCE OF FRIENDSHIP!!!, COVENANT ENTERED BETWEEN NATIONS!!!! PLEDGE, LEAGUE

    • The sacrifice is the problem however as it hasnt started yet.

    • Ally said

      While significant, esp the date, this is NOT IT! The real thing will be between many nations and will return the temple mount back to the Jews and allow rebuilding of the Temple!

    • Jacqueline said

      Richard, my understanding is that the enactment and the enforcement (confirmation) can be two entirely different matters. So seeing that an act is created on Tisha B’Av, it appears this very well could be the event. Then again, someone mentioned that the real Tisha B’Av will begin sundown tomorrow. However, I entirely agree–this is probably catastrophic. No surprise. God have mercy.

      But the key is not that the covenant is made–it is the one who enforces the covenant, and the temple reconstruction begins.

    • Deirdre said

      Hi,
      In the King James Version it reads like this:
      American King James Version
      And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the middle of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured on the desolate. ((I am quite sure this is speaking of what YAHSHUA did on the cross. If you read the NIV, it adds that “and on a wing of the temple…” ))) pray on this.

    • Linda said

      :( It will be a COLD day in hel before I would read the NIV corrupted versio I can elaborate for you if you desire! :)

    • Frank said

      Faithful.

      Perhaps what we’re seeing is a pseudo-antichrist. That is a reasonable facsimile of a peace treaty is formed, a reasonable (or believable enough) antichrist figure has been identified. And many people want to believe it, and think the tribulation starts on day X.

      However, perhaps what we see is the pseudo-antichrist, making his pseudo-beast kingdom, and many are on board thinking the current globalist power structure is evil.

      THEN, what will happen is a Jesus-like figure will come and overthrow this regime. Maybe he’s in a UFO (angel driven, or underground secret hidden human driven) and says he’s an alien, yada yada yada. BOOM!

      Christians (maybe) accept him as Jesus because he overthrew “the antichrist”. Jews accept him as messiah because he will do things they excpect the messiah to do. Muslims will accept him as mahdi, etc. Basically LA’s great deception plays out then.

      OR

      UFOs come “invading” and taking an obvious “antichrist role” then the real antichrist saves us all from them and does his antichrist thing called the tribulation.

      Wild speculation here. Trying to see what the enemy might be trying to thinks.

      We know that the following are part of his plan somehow. But which ones are the main event and which ones are throwaways to get him to the culmination of installing himself as God?

      + UFOs (a lot invested here, but could it be a throw away? Could he pull this out as a phony threat to save us from? Or will the Ufos save us from item # 2)

      + global government (obviously evil now, no one will believe a “world leader” of the current regime is anything but evil. One theory, they unite us against ET who shows up for “our good”. But the current NWO gets overthrown by UFO “saviors” and sets up. A real NWO

      + to be worshipped as though he were God (which will happen in the sanctuary of the temple)

      + General paranormal stuff (just a distraction)

      + transhumanism (potentially involving nephilim, but not necessarily)

      Ok, I’m tired and rambling….

    • Linda said

      Frank you are not the first to say a false perception to distract from the real deal! The NWO as the deception with al it’s trimmings 1st, and then the real AC coming in to save us, because he comes in not with force, but the people wiingly choose him the AC!

    • Debra said

      Frank, that’s some cwazy wambling. You’ve just portrayed deception to foil the deception. One deception to cover another deception. Double deception dip. Devils food layer cake deception. Whoa… my head’s spinning. (( O_O ))

    • Great point Faithfulelect!

      “Oba’s” no doubt part of an unfolding apocalyptic pattern. Just the same as nero, antiochus epiphanes, hitler and many lesser instances like Waco. Basically a foreshadowing or reflection or fractal instance of the main occurrence.

      That means that I expect that pattern to extend to the nation and to Israel, even if only in part.

      In like manner, we can say the “birth pangs” (the time of Jacob’s Trouble) are a smaller fractal instance of the Tribulation which is likewise a smaller fractal instance of the Great Tribulation.

      Likewise, the beast kingdoms reflect each other in the progression of rebel angel empires down through the generation from babylon through rome to the clay-&-iron empire shattered by the coming of the King (and kingdom of Heaven) outwardly and openly into the world.

      The point is that even if this is not the-covenant between the-antichrist and Israel to establish the-false-peace, it’s a covenant between an antichrist and Israel to establish a false peace. It’s in the same spirit, with likely the same type of results.

      Which means plenty of harvest and plenty of opportunity for overcoming.

      ps. That said, I’ll still assert that obama manifest more the spirit of false-witness (the dragon) than of the antichrist.

    • Kirk Domitrovic said

      Folks LISTEN !!!

      There wasn’t ANY “strengthening of a covenant” here…because it is CLEARLY

      declared in SCRIPTURE from Daniel 9:27 read it

      “And he (the anti-CHRIST) will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, BUT in the middle of the week (he) will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; …”

      This video SAYS NOTHING of a 7 YEAR period of time. That is KEY !!!!

      The 7 YEAR COVENANT BEGINS THE TRIBULATION !!! ( NOT the rapture)

      Rapture can happen at ANY time….HOWEVER, see Romans 11:25…
      WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE “FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES” to come in…
      That means EVERY MEMBER of THE BODY of CHRIST…THE BRIDE….
      MUST RECEIVE SALVATION…and that is why we must continue to proclaim
      THE GOSPEL and WIN PEOPLE TO THE LORD!!!

      The RAPTURE will NOT occur until that FULL NUMBER of BELIEVERS
      has come in to the BODY of CHRIST…The Bride…HIS CHURCH.

      God is waiting “FOR THE PRECIOUS FRUIT of THE EARTH”…people!!!!

      BLESS GOD….LET’s GET BUSY PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL !!!!!!!!

    My Sons Rapture Dream on RITA

    Dear All,

    My son Ebuka is 11 years old and will be graduating elementary school by July 13th. He woke up about 2 weeks ago and narrated how a week or two after his graduation ceremony, there was a VERY LOUD trumpet sound that immediately pulled people away into the sky.

    He said that the noise was so loud that the whole world heard it. Since then my son has been on the edge and insists that it will happen even today. His guess is end of July or early August. I am even tensed myself.

    Brethren, something really BIG is about to unleash…..what we do not have is the day or the hour, I think we have the time frame.

    • Linda said

      I await this Rosh Hashanah :) the Last Trump for the Church :) Possible! The. There’s the Last Trump @the End! We can’t be long for this wicked world !

    • Frank said

      That would be nice. I strive to be ready and ask the Lord to come back almost every day. I am so weary of this world, but I also understand that His tarrying is so others can come to Him like I did. That’s the only thing that helps me endure..

    • Kirk Domitrovic said

      RIGHT ON LINDA !!!

      Rosh Hashanah is a 2 Day feast …for which Jesus said, “No man knows
      The day or The hour”…which was understood by His disciples as a reference
      to the FEAST of TRUMPETS …a.k.a. “Rosh Hashanah”.

      EVERY FEAST so far has been fulfilled ON THE DAY !!!

      I fully expect Jesus to fulfill THE NEXT FEAST on the EXACT “DAY”.

      The NEXT FEAST on the calendar is TRUMPETS…the 5th FEAST !!!

      REMEMBER, Trumpets is the ONLY “2 day” FEAST … where they
      do NOT know when it begins… UNTIL they see the silver sliver of the moon.
      THEN it begins! (A NEW moon is a concealed moon…you can’t see it.)

      SO, there is a “2 day” window of time WHEN IT COULD BEGIN
      …but they were NOT sure at what point during THOSE 2 DAYS !!!

      THUS, “No man knew The Day or The Hour”. Pretty Awesome Huh!!!!!!!!
      Jesus gives us THE CLUE to His return. AWESOME.
      A 48 hour …2 day…window of time!!! “No man knows THE DAY or THE HOUR.”

      Also worth a note: Trumpets is also a time of “Concealment”….
      Where in this case THE CHURCH is concealed in Heaven from Tribulation.
      The people left on earth ARE NOT CONCEALED from God’s Wrath!!!

      The Feasts go IN ORDER as listed in LEVITICUS 23

      FEAST 1 is verse 5 PASSOVER…Jesus Christ’s Death
      FEAST 2 is verse 6 Unleavened Bread…Jesus Christ’s Burial
      FEAST 3 is verse 10 First Fruits…Jesus Christ Resurrected !!!
      FEAST 4 is verse 16 PENTECOST…BIRTH of the CHURCH
      FEAST 5 is verse 24 TRUMPETS…RAPTURE of the CHURCH
      FEAST 6 is verse 27 ATONEMENT…Judgment of Israel & The Nations
      FEAST 7 is verse 34 TABERNACLES…Kingdom Age of Messiah-1,ooo Yrs

      The first 3 FEASTS are SPRING time frame.

      The last 3 FEASTS are FALL time frame.

      Rosh Hashanah this year 2012 is september 17 and 18.
      Each day in Jewish Calendar starts at 6pm in the evening and goes 24 hrs.

      ALSO to be considered:
      There is a Time Differential from ISRAEL time zone to other parts of world.
      SO, WHEN does each “day” begin…??? this also MAY adjust time too!!

      I recommend watching “The Ancient Jewish Wedding” by Perry Stone
      on youtube.com as it CLEARLY teaches how a Jewish Wedding proceeds.

      It will answer SOOO many questions !!!

    • Linda said

      Kirk, do you think the Covenant is a 7 yr binding agreement, or that God alerts us to a time frame of what the AC will do? (Breach it in the middlle/renig on it(he is the deceiver!)

    • Well rosh hashanah is interesting, but there some other interesting facts. Rosh hashanah starts the days of awe and end with yom kippur, which is the most important Jewish solemn holiday. This holiday means the day of atonement, which is very significant considering the circumstances. Incidentally, there are 10 days in the days of awe.

      I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days.

      Rosh Hashanah:
      the trumpet or shofarRosh haShanah, Yom Teruah, or Feast of Trumpetsseason of TeshuvahJesus and Rosh haShanahthe great assemblagebloodless bodiesJesus and Joshuajudgment of worksDay of the Lord judgmentYamim Nora’im, Days of Awe, or Day of the Lord
      the trumpet or shofar
      In ancient Israel, a trumpet or shofar (ram’s horn) was blown for two major purposes. One purpose was to announce an important assembly of the people, such as a festival, so as to gather them together into the presence of the Lord (Lev. 23:24b,25; Num. 10:2,3,7,10; Psalm 81:3; Joel 2:15,16). Another purpose was to sound a fanfare or an alarm, so as to muster troops or gather people for war or for judgment (Num. 10:9; Josh. 6:5; Judg. 7:22a; 2 Chr. 13:14c,15a; Jer. 4:19e; Joel 2:1).

      Rosh haShanah, Yom Teruah, or Feast of Trumpets
      Rosh haShanah (literally, “Head of the Year”), also called the Feast of Trumpets, is the New Year (and first new moon) of the civil calendar and is the first of three festivals/holy days in the Fall (the previous four are in the Spring—see C-4). God commanded that it be commemorated with trumpet blasts (using a shofar or ram’s horn) on the “first day of the seventh month” (Lev. 23:23-25; Num. 29:1-6), which is Tishri 1. The trumpet blown on Rosh HaShanah, in Hebrew tradition, is considered to be the “Last Trumpet.”

      (The “Last Trump” for the Church! Not the Last Trump for Israel at the end.) Calling the assembly to Christ!

    • Linda said

      :) The only thing I disagree with is the birth of the Church, I ,according to scripture believe it started around Acts 18 when Paul announced to the Jews that because they denied the Resurrected Christ they were set aside and he would go to the Gentiles(to provoke the Jesw to jealousy remember).

      I can provide this scripture study for you/anyone for their review! :) LLM/Pastor David Picos D.D.

      I believe Acts. 2 was for the Apostles to begin their Ministry to the Jews/Brethern (Jesus came to His own) with all power and wonder/ miracles so they would believe their testimony. :)

    “U.S.-backed rebels are committing Christian genocide in Syria, where they are sacking churches and issuing threats that all Christians will be cleansed from rebel-held territory.

    A mass exodus of thousands of Christians is taking place, even as mainstream Western reporters, such as Robert Fisk, demonize these same Christians for being supportive of the secular regime.

    The bloody jihad waged against Nigeria’s Christians, which has seen hundreds killed this year alone, now includes plans to kill Christians with poisoned food, as part of the Islamic organization Boko Haram’s stated goal of purging Nigeria of all Christian presence.

    During Egypt’s presidential elections, Al Ahram reported that “the Muslim Brotherhood blockaded entire streets; prevented Copts, at gunpoint, from voting and threatened Christian families not to let their children go out and vote” for the secular candidate.

    Meanwhile, under President Obama, the U.S. State Department, in an unprecedented move, purged the sections dealing with religious persecution from its recently released Country Reports on Human Rights.

    Similarly, the Obama administration insists that the Nigeria crisis has nothing to do with religion, even as Obama offered his hearty blessings to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood president, in the midst of allegations of electoral fraud.

    Categorized by theme, June’s assemblage of Muslim persecution of Christians around the world includes, but is not limited to, the following accounts, listed in alphabetical order by country, not severity.

    Church Attacks

    Egypt: Because many visitors were in attendance, Muslims surrounded a Coptic church during divine liturgy, “demanding that the visiting Copts leave the church before the completion of prayers, and threatening to burn down the church if their demands were not met.” The priest contacted police and asked for aid, only to be told to comply with their demands, “and do not let buses with visitors come to the church anymore.”

    Christian worshippers exited halfway through liturgy; they were subjected to jeers outside. As the Christians drove away, Muslims hurled stones at their buses. Also, repairs to a Coptic church that was torched and gutted a year ago by rioting Muslims were woefully inadequate, leaving the congregation with a staggering debt from further necessary repairs.

    Indonesia: A Muslim mob of 300 wrecked a store that was being used for a Sunday church service on the pretext that it had not obtained “permission to hold Mass.” The mob wrecked the first floor of the store, breaking windows and damaging furniture. Police stopped the mob before it reached the third floor, where some 60 Christians had congregated. Twelve Christians were taken into custody for questioning; none of the Muslims was arrested.

    Separately, in compliance with calls by Islamic clerics, authorities ordered 20 churches to be torn down after the closure last month of 16 smaller Christian places of worship in the same district. The congregations continue to hold services inside their sealed-off buildings as a few members stand guard outside.

    Iran: Authorities ordered the closure of yet another church in the capital, Tehran, “amid a government campaign to crack down on the few recognized churches offering Farsi-speaking services,” according to a human rights group.

    The church originally served Christians of an Assyrian background; however, “due to an increasing number of Farsi-speaking believers—mostly [MMBs] Muslim Background Believers—it [the church] has become a cause of concern for the authorities and they now ordered it to shut down.”

    Kashmir: A 119-year-old church was torched by Muslims. The local bishop “said that the Muslim fundamentalists want Christians to leave the state…. He said that the church had filed a case with the police but had been advised not to ‘play up’ such incidents.”

    Christian minorities “are coming under growing threat from Kashmir’s Muslim majority. A Christian human rights group in India said that over 400 Christians have been displaced as a result.”

    Kazakhstan: Land use regulations are being exploited “as a means to prevent religious communities and their members exercising freedom of religion or belief.” Most recently, authorities “forced a Methodist church to close ‘voluntarily’,” and fined the wife of the Church’s Pastor, who paid for an announcement in newspapers; it said the church was “liquidating itself,” because “We do not want more punishment from the authorities.”

    Nigeria: Islamic militants attacked several churches with bombs and guns during every Sunday of the month; they killed dozens of Christian worshippers, and critically wounded hundreds, including many children.
    Growing numbers of Christians “dare not” attend church services anymore, even as reports suggest that some police are intentionally abandoning their watch prior to such attacks.

    Sudan: Authorities bulldozed two church buildings to the ground and confiscated three Catholic schools, as a response to the secession of South Sudan in July 2011; the authorities said that such buildings, largely associated with the South Sudanese Christians in this Islamic-ruled country, are now unwelcome.

    Another church building belonging to the Full Gospel Church was destroyed in the same area two months ago, also on the claim that it belonged to the South Sudanese.

    Turkmenistan: An Evangelical church in this Muslim-majority nation was raided by authorities: “All adult believers at the meeting were questioned about their faith and all of their Christian literature was confiscated.” Their literature was returned two weeks later.

    Apostasy, Blasphemy, Proselytism

    Egypt: A Christian student handing out Christian literature in Assuit University “raised the ire of Muslim students;” this action apparently resulted in clashes on campus, and caused many injuries “amid shouts of sectarian chants.” Likewise, a Salafi leader declared on Egyptian TV that Muslims have no right “to convert to Christianity.”

    Iran: Five months after five Christian converts were arrested, their condition and fate remain unknown. They are accused of “attending house church services, promoting Christianity, agitating against the regime and disturbing national security.” Being imprisoned for 130 days without word “is an obvious example of physical and mental abuse of the detainees….

    One of the prison guards openly told one of those Christian detainees that all these pressures and uncertainties are intended to make them flee the country after they are released.”

    In addition, a young Iranian woman, who recently converted to Christianity and was an outspoken activist against the Islamic regime, was found dead, slumped over her car’s steering wheel, with a single gunshot wound to her head.

    Pakistan: A banned Islamic group filed a blasphemy case against a 25-year-old Christian man, later deemed mentally retarded. Muslims had converted him to Islam two years earlier, to use him as a pretext to annex his Christian village. In the words of a witness: “These people [Muslims] do not let us live. We are poor but are working hard to survive. On the night of the incident a mob of Muslim clerics gathered [around] our colony to burn us all because of the blasphemy Ramzan [the retarded man] committed.

    Everyone was scared. We all have small children in our houses and we didn’t know what to do. The mob surrounded our colony and shouted a slogan to burn all the houses; they had torches in their hands and petrol in the cans. We called police; thank God the police arrived just in time.”

    Saudi Arabia: Thirty-five Ethiopian Christians who were arrested in December for praying in a private home remain jailed, even as Saudi officials offer contradictory reasons for their arrest. Meanwhile, the Ethiopian Christians have been beaten and subjected to interrogations and strip searches.

    Saudi Arabia formally bans all religions other than Islam. In 2006, Saudi authorities told the United States that they would “guarantee and protect the right to private worship for all, including non-Muslims who gather in homes for religious practice.”

    Sudan: A Muslim woman divorced her husband, a convert to Christianity; the court therefore automatically granted her custody of their two sons. When their father tried to visit his children, his wife threatened to notify authorities. “They might take the case to a prosecution court, which might lead to my being sentenced to death according to Islamic apostasy law—but I am ready for this,” said the Christian.

    “I want the world to know this. What crime have I done? Is it because I became a Christian? I know if the world is watching, they [the Sudanese authorities] will be afraid to do any harm to me.”

    United States: Two Christian men in Saint Louis, Missouri received death threats from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard, apparently for converting to Christianity and preaching it. One of the men formerly served in the Revolutionary Guard and was once even assigned a suicide mission against Israel, before converting and immigrating to the U.S.

    “The two men believe that Islam is a religion that could easily radicalize a Muslim into a terrorist.” Similarly, in Dearborn Michigan, Christian demonstrators exercising their free speech rights were stoned by Muslims shouting, “Allahu Akbar!” ["Allah is Greater!"].

    Dhimmitude

    [General Abuse, Debasement, and Suppression of non-Muslims as "Tolerated" Citizens]

    Indonesia: “The number of violations of Christians’ religious rights in Indonesia reached 40 in the first five months of the year, nearly two-thirds the amount of anti-Christian actions in all of last year,” according to the Jakarta Christian Communication Forum. The Christian minority in Indonesia faced 64 cases of violations of religious freedom last year, up from 47 in 2010.” Violence against Christians also increased.

    Mali: “Islamists in control of northern Mali are enforcing a strict version of Sharia law that victimizes Christians, women and other vulnerable groups.” The radicals took control of northern Mali in April after ousting the armed forces of the government of Mali. “All the Christians have left Timbuktu (the main city in north Mali) because of the Sharia law as well as because of the presence of people linked with al-Qaeda,” said a Christian leader who fled from northern Mali.

    Pakistan: Police are siding with the Muslims accused of beating a pregnant Christian woman, causing her to miscarry twins, and gang-raping her 13-year-old Christian niece. “Muslim criminals believe police and courts will give little credence to the complaints of Christians in the country, which is nearly 96 percent Muslim,” adds the report. The Christian family is “paying a huge price for being poor … and for being Christian,” said the uncle.

    “What can we expect from the police when they are not paying heed even to the court orders? They are distorting facts and have even gone to the extent of accusing a 13-year-old [raped girl] of committing adultery with three men.” Another Christian politician’s ID mistook him for a Muslim, causing him to insist “on the floor of the Punjab Assembly that he was born a Christian and appealed to them and the media not to indulge in propaganda against him that could incite Muslim extremists to kill him.”

    Turkey: Thousands of devout Muslims prayed outside the Hagia Sophia—formerly Christendom’s greatest cathedral, now a museum—shouting, “Allahu Akbar!” and demanding that the building be opened as a mosque in honor of the jihadi sultan who conquered Constantinople in the 15th century.

    South Africa: More than 70 students were kicked out of the Coastal KZN As-Salaam campus dormitories and are currently homeless because campus officials tried to make the students observe Islam, including by banning Bibles, which the students resisted. “All we wanted was to be free to practice our own religions and not be forced to follow Islam, but now we have been punished by being deprived of safe accommodation,” said one student.”

      Listen to Avi Lipkin’s predictions on PITN He says the Christians will pull their money and themselves out (Egypt) and it will finacially collapse and they will be flooding in here(Muslims) we will then reach a majority! It was either Egypt or the Mdl East. Obama will be glad to let them in!!
