The Thirty Christian Ethiopians Are in Heaven While Your Souls Will Rot in Hell, You Devil Worshipers

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 20, 2015

Why did the Muslims of ISIS behead 30 Ethiopian Christians whose lineage is said to go all the way back to Philip the Apostle?

አንረሳም

From the video (see 3:26) we translated, ISIS gave a way out:

We tell the Christians everywhere that the Islamic state will spread by Allah’s will. It [the Islamic state] will get to you even if you are safe in your fortresses. Who ever converts to Islam, he will have peace and who accepts the Dhimmi status will be at peace. But who rejects our terms he will receive nothing from us except the sharpness of the sword. Men will be slaughtered and the women and children will be enslaved and their monies are confiscated as booty. This is the rule of Allah and his prophet. And to Allah is the pride and also to the believers but the hypocrites do not understand.

They gave that message only in Arabic.

So according to ISIS these Christians refused to convert and submit to Islam, so they got slaughtered.

This is perhaps why they did not translate this part of their message to English, which was for Copts and Ethiopians who are known for their stubbornness not to convert. And so ISIS did not want to admit, as they did in the previous release with the 21 Copts, that these Christians refused to convert, as usual. These Christians are not like some liberal journalist hostage who plays along and moves his lips saying “I declare there is no God but Allah …” while he ‘repents later’, when he is on the other side.

The Muslims know that it is extremly rare that Copts and Ethiopians convert. It is perhaps fitting to call these “Stubborn For Jesus”.

So of course, the rest is translated in the English in which it is all about breaking the cross as the message is clear, it is the breaking of the will of the Christians which ISIS failed to do with these saints.

The scene is a microcosm of what is to come as John the Revelator predicted that prior to Christ’s coming:

” … I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.[Revelation 20:4]

But the first part of the verse says: “I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge.” So in the end it will be the slain who will judge these executioners.

My Message To Muslims

So Muslim, go ahead, execute, slice and decapitate, for the time is coming when you will suffer eternally in hell while your ‘Nebi Muhammad’ (false prophet Muhammad) will stoop. As the Scriptures say: “Bel bows, Nebo stoops” (Isaiah 46:1). And bow he will from the fear of the Son of God. We fear not your blade, “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28)

In other words, the thirty are in heaven while your souls will rot in hell. Come to our fortresses and see the wrath you will receive. In other words, go to hell.

Here, let me explain to you how it works, biblically. Your victories by the sword can only be announced when all Christians bow towards your idol image in Mecca which you Muslims will eventually destroy with your own hands. As long as Christians choose your scimitar blade over prostrating in submission towards your idol, the victory will always be for the slain and not the stupid butcher; we are the ones who submit to die for God while you only die for your pleasure and for booty. Indeed, you are slaves to yourselves. The devil thought he was victorious when the lamb of God, Christ, was slain, but the victory was Christ’s and ours. The devil fooled you to believe that Christ was not crucified and you thought yourselves to be smart by filling yourselves with pride saying “we will conquer … and we will dominate …”. Your pride comes from your Allah who is the devil disguised as God and the Magi, as you call them “Majus”, the Shiites shall destroy your idol in Mecca. It is written and so it will be.

You lost against these Ethiopian saints. The history of these Ethiopian Christians stems way before your heresiarch Muhammad. Ethiopian Christians stem from the 8th chapter of Acts is that Philip the Evangelist has been sent from Jerusalem by an angel of the Lord “…to go toward south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” (v. 26) It is on this road that Philip meets the Ethiopian who “had come to Jerusalem and was returning home” (v.28-29). So Christianity in Ethiopia dates to the 1st century, way before your false prophet making Ethiopia unique amongst sub-Saharan African countries.

Today you show the killing of thirty, yet the Ethiopian Church has 40-45 million and is thus the largest of all Oriental Orthodox churches. There are also 13.7 million Protestants and half million Catholics who love Christ and are willing to die for Him.

To our Christian brethren, please consider the serious issue on Christian persecution which will increase as we see these events unfold. we operate a very effective mission in rescuing fellow Christians who live under the Muslim yoke baking bricks as slaves, burned in furnaces and slaughtered.

The Time Is Coming That Whoever Kills You Will Think That He Is Offering A Service To God’

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 20, 2015

How do you deal with psychotic religious warriors that believe that they are offering a service to God by killing Christians?

Ever since 9/11, we were endlessly told about what a great threat “al-Qaeda” was, but I don’t remember a single time when al-Qaeda ever marched a group of Christians out and beheaded them on camera. ISIS appears to be an entirely different animal than al-Qaeda ever was, and it is about time that we started taking them seriously.

But the Obama administration is actually allowing Americans that went overseas to fight for ISIS to come back into the country and resume their normal lives. To me, that is absolutely insane. These are people that believe that they score major points with their god when they kill us. And they especially seem to relish the opportunity to kill Christians. Sadly, this is all part of a rising trend of Christian persecution all over the planet. Christian churches are being burned to the ground in places such as Egypt, India and West Africa, and earlier this month we witnessed a horrific incident during which more than a hundred Christians were mercilessly gunned down in Kenya. It is becoming increasingly dangerous to be a Christian, and it is only going to get worse in the years ahead.

You have to keep in mind that these ISIS fighters are actually convinced that they are the good guys. They don’t believe that what they are doing is evil. When they kill Christians, they are just doing what they believe their god wants them to do

A shocking new video appearing to show at least 30 Christian Ethiopians being beheaded and shot by ISIS in Libya has been released.

The 29-minute video, titled ‘Until It Came To Them – Clear Evidence’, shows dozens of militants holding two separate groups captive, thought to be in the south and the west of the country.

At least 16 men, described by Islamic State as the ‘followers of the cross from the enemy Ethiopian Church’, are lined up and shot in a desert area while 12 others are filmed being forced to walk down a beach before being beheaded.

This follows another video in February of the beheading of a group of 21 Coptic Christians on the beach in Libya, though that terrain was rockier than the one shown in the latest film.

This video that was released makes it abundantly clear what these killers are motivated by. The following description of the audio on this latest ISIS video comes from CNN

All praise be to Allah, the Lord and cherisher of the world and may peace and blessings be upon the Prophet Mohammed. To the nation of the cross, we are back again on the sands, where the companions of the Prophet, peace be upon him, have stepped on before, telling you: Muslim blood that was shed under the hands of your religion is not cheap,” the narrator says in Arabic on the 30-minute video.

The narrator continues, “In fact, their blood is the purest blood because there is a nation behind them (which) inherits revenge. And we swear to Allah: the one who disgraced you by our hands, you will not have safety, even in your dreams, until you embrace Islam.”

Do you understand what is being said there?

They will not stop fighting until we all embrace Islam.

Not much room for negotiation there.

Meanwhile, other Islamic groups all over the planet are starting to take their cues from ISIS, and this is resulting in a rising tide of violence against Christians.

For example, recall the incident in the Mediterranean Sea the other day in which a dozen innocent Christians were tossed to their deaths

When a rubber dinghy carrying around 100 African refugees across the Mediterranean began to sink, a Nigerian Christian prayed for his life in an innocent act that would end in the deaths of 12 fellow migrants.

One of the Muslims on board the rickety craft ordered him to stop, saying: ‘Here, we only pray to Allah.’

When he refused, a violent fight ensued and 12 Christians drowned when they were thrown overboard by the Muslim refugees.

Who in the world would do such a thing?

The only reason those 12 people were killed was because they were Christians.

The following is what Reverend Franklin Graham had to say about this incident…

The Italian police have arrested 15 Muslims for throwing 12 people overboard and watching them helplessly drown in the Mediterranean,” said Rev. Graham in an Apr. 17 Facebook post.

He continued, “Why? Just because they were Christians! Because Islam has a deep and relentless hatred for people who bear the Name of Christ. These Christians were among a group of 105 people who were trying to escape war and poverty in Africa and were headed to Italy to look for work.”

We saw another example of this kind of violence against Christians earlier this year in West Africa

It took only a few hours, but it was enough time for hundreds of radical Muslims in Niger, West Africa, to destroy dozens of churches and several Christian homes. Ten people lost their lives and hundreds were injured when Muslim mobs went on the deadly rampage in early January.

Now, three months later, Christians living there are moving forward, determined to still preach the Gospel despite the dangers.

In most of these attacks around the globe, those involved do not believe that they are doing anything wrong.

Rather, most of the people involved in this violence believe that they are actually offering a service to their god.

And the tide is turning in the western world as well. I don’t know if you have noticed, but it is quite socially acceptable to make jokes about Christians and to portray them as bad guys and lunatics in movies and on television shows. Evangelical Christians are even being labeled as “potential terrorists” in official government documents, and every trace of the Christian faith is being pushed out of public life in the United States. I discussed how this is being done in the U.S. military in this recent article, but just about everywhere you look Christianity is being pushed into the shadows. The disdain for the faith of our forefathers has reached a crescendo, and it is not going to be any easier to be a Christian in this country in the years ahead – that is for sure.
