Why Are There So Few Christian Refugees From Syria In The UK?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 7, 2016

bishop-angaelos-in-the-church-of-the-holy-sepulchre-in-jerusalemFaith leaders and aid workers have spoken out against the tiny proportion of Christian refugees admitted to Britain under the Government scheme to help the suffering people of Syria.

Under two per cent of Syrian refugees admitted to Britain since the scheme began are Christian, compared to 97.5 per cent that are Muslim.

Before the war began, an estimated 10 per cent of the population of Syria was Christian. Even now that so many have fled and been displaced, there are still 772,000 Christians in Syria, more than four per cent of the population of 1.86 million.

David Cameron, then Prime Minister, pledged in September last year to take 20,000 Syrian refugees to Britain.

The faith of refugees admitted under the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettleent Scheme (VPR) has not previously been made publicly available but Christian Today obtained the figures via a Freedom of Information Request.

Home Office records show that between September 7, 2015 and June 30 this year, 2,659 individuals were resettled under the VPR scheme.

These included 2,592 Muslims and just 51 Christians, four of whom are identified as Eastern Orthodox. There are also three Druze and 13 Yazidis

The end of June is the date of the most recently published statistics.

John Pontifex, head of information at Aid to the Church in Need, a charity that has been active in helping Christians in the region, said he had visited Christian communities in Syria decimated by Daesh, or Islamic State.

He described the underlying fear that the whole community will be wiped out.

“It is clear that in many communities, a very high proportion of Christians have suffered and been forced away. So a disproportionately high number of Christians are in need of help in Syria. The fact that out of 2,659 Syrian refugees resettled in the UK there are only 51 Christians takes no account of the reality on the ground. It takes no account of the high level of suffering inflicted on Christian and other minority groups such as Yazidis that have been specifically targeted and displaced. These figures show their suffering is being ignored.”

He said many Christians slipped through the net because they did not want to register as Christians at refugee camps, as this itself could lead to them being “targeted” in the camps. So they preferred to seek sanctuary in the homes of other Christians, even if that meant sleeping 30 people to a room.

“This highlights the degree to which Christians are being left out. They are unable to claim proper help or to seek asylum in the West,” he said. “This is a community of suffering that has just disappeared below the radar. It is a crying shame, and these figures point to the way the crisis facing Christians, Yazidis and other minority faiths has been completely overlooked.”

Bishop Angaelos of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the UK told Christian Today that Christians are marginalised in the scheme because many of them feel unable to register through the official UNHCR channels.

He said the answer was to use Church networks on the ground to register the Christians needing resettlement, but at the moment there is no mechanism for that to happen.

He said: “It is not that they cannot register. They do not register. It is almost as if they are anxious about registering for resettlement. They fear this will make it look as though they are not citizens, and do not wish to stay in their own country.”

In addition, they fear that registering for resettlement will make them a greater “target” than they are already, and more vulnerable to persecution.

“To use the local church networks would be ideal. We need to encourage UNHCR to work with local churches to provide registration points.”

He added: “It is very good people are given the opportunity to come to Britain, whether they are Muslim or Christian or whatever their faith is. But Christians need to be encouraged as much as possible to register.”

Christian Today is awaiting a comment from the Home Office.

Is God Already Judging Britain?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 1, 2014

When will they stop being patronizing towards Africans?

A sandstormThis is the frequent question many ask when they note typical European trait of displaying ignorance and arrogance
 
While a hostile western press still likes to propagate exactly the image of Africa that these “all-knowing” British readers are referring to – incompetence, corruption and inept government – the fact is that Africa is by itself changing for the better, despite experiencing persistent hostility from the Europeans and their Arab tools. (Coalition of Esau and Ishmael)
 
We learn from biblical history; once man moved away from the spirit of truth the demise of man entered into the Garden of Eden. Once man was cast out, death or the demise of man began to unfold. As Cain and Abel, when Cain rose up to slay his brother, because sin and death had filled his heart, for the demise of that nation had come to it’s end.
 
Since the middle of the 20th century, Britain’s government, media, and vocal minorities have deliberately and consistently rejected the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Many people are led away from biblical truth and morality as Britain’s laws and culture are gradually usurped by wicked laws from Europe, particularly ‘Equality Law’. And the media is responsible for promoting anti-Christian themes 24/7.
 
Has Britain Angered God?
  • Britain does not ‘seek the Lord’, the God of Israel (Zeph 2.3), or ‘seek the truth’ (Jer 5.1) as found in the Bible. e.g. declining church attendance (just 6% of the population)

  • Britain goes after other ‘gods’ and worships ‘idols’ (Jer 19.4,5)(Deut 7.25,26) e.g. the rapid growth of Islamic mosques and Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist and Jain temples across Britain.

  • Britain targets believers in Christ (Mat 10.17-20)(Mat 5.11) e.g. Christians offering a public service, as in the social services.

  • Britain is rebellious (Zeph 3.1)(Ps 2.1-3) e.g. the police openly support gay marches and some councils wish to abolish Christmas.

  • Britain’s secular leaders, those in positions of power, are reckless, arrogant and dishonest (Dan 9.8)(Ezek 22.27)(Zeph 3.3) e.g. reckless bankers, dishonest MPs and the quiet devolution of Britain’s laws to the EU.

  • Britain’s religious leaders fall into error (Zeph 3.4)(Hos 9.7) e.g. the political correctness of Britain’s Christian church leaders who no longer hold up Christianity as unique amongst faiths.

  • Britain teaches its children error (Mat 18.6,7) e.g. Godless macro-evolution is claimed to be ‘proved beyond all doubt’ and the biblical account of creation is taught as myth.

  • Britain kills the unborn that are already known to God as people (Jer 1.5) e.g. Britain aborts some 200,000 babies each year. 

  • Britain views divorce as ‘acceptable’, rather than as the exception (Mat 19.1-9). Britain now has one of the highest divorce rates in the world.

  • Britain glorified paganism in the 2012 London Olympics, especially in the closing ceremony.

  • Britain (England and Wales) legalized same-sex marriage in 2013. The UK government now defies the biblical concept of marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman (Gen 2.24).


Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness.” Isaiah 10:1

 
The following phenomenon occurs, 3 days after Britain made same-sex marriage legal
 
Britain is covered in layer of dust after African storms carry in sand from the SAHARA desert 2,000 miles away (and even Cameron’s car got hit)
Britons woke up this morning to find their homes and cars covered in dust from the Sahara Desert.
 
Unusual atmospheric conditions have blown up a sandstorm from Africa – and a thin layer of dust was seen today in areas of southern England including Cornwall and Greater London.
 
The Met Office has forecast a ten out of ten level of air pollution for London for tomorrow and Wednesday, with warnings that the dust will this week cause one of the worst smogs of the year.
 
I’m quite interested in weather and I follow it all the time, but I have never seen anything like this before. It happened this afternoon.
 
Most of the cars in the street are also covered in the thin layer of sand. It’s amazing when you think about how far it has come.’

God Sending Warnings to Hollywood and The Makers of the “Noah” Movie?
 
In the movie “Noah”, almost everything is the opposite of what it should be. Instead of villains, the fallen angels are heroes. Instead of a preacher of righteousness, Noah is depicted as a psychopathic maniac that hates humanity and wants to kill his unborn grandchild if it is a girl. The movie somehow finds a way to avoid using the word “God” the entire time, and during a scene where Noah explains to his family how the world was “created”, the film displays visuals depicting Darwinian evolution.
 
In the Book of Enoch, the Watchers are angels dispatched to Earth to watch over the humans. These fallen angels soon begin to lust for human women and, at the prodding of their leader Samyaza, defect en masse to illicitly instruct humanity and procreate among them. The offspring of these unions are the Nephilim, savage giants who pillage the earth and endanger humanity. Samyaza and his associates further taught their human charges arts and technologies such as weaponry, cosmetics, mirrors, sorcery, and other techniques that would otherwise be discovered gradually over time by humans, not foisted upon them all at once.
 
Names and Misdeeds of the Watchers
 
img-blake3The following are Names and Misdeeds of the Fallen Angels (aka the Five Satans) in [1 Enoch 69:4-12.] (1 Enoch gives other lists of the names of the fallen angels as well.) This passage is mysterious because it mentions angels that are not mentioned elsewhere.
 
Yeqon – “one who misled all the children of the angels, brought them down upon the earth, and perverted them by the daughters of the people”
 
Asb’el– “one who gave the children of the holy angels an evil counsel and misled them so that they would defile their bodies by the daughters of the people”
 
Gader’el – “he who showed the children of the people all the blows of death, who misled Eve, who showed the children of the people (how to make) the instruments of death (such as) the shield, the breastplate, and the sword for warfare, and all (the other) instruments of death to the children of the people”
 
Pinem’e – “demonstrated to the children of the people the bitter and the sweet and revealed to them all the secrets of their wisdom. Furthermore he caused the people to penetrate (the secret of) writing and (the use of) ink and paper”
 
Kasadya – “he who revealed to the children of the people (the various) flagellations of all evil – (the flagellation) of the souls and the demons, the smashing of the embryo in the womb so that it may be crushed, the flagellation of the soul, snake bites, sunstrokes, the son of the serpent, whose name is Taba’ta”
 
Names of other fallen angels – Semyaz, Aristaqis, Armen, Kokba’el, Tur’el, Rumyal, Danyul, Neqa’el, Baraqel, Azaz’el, Armaros, Betryal, Basas’el, Hanan’el, Tur’el, Sipwese’el, Yeter’el, Tuma’el, Tur’el, Rum’el, and Azaz’el[1 Enoch 69:2]
 
Eventually God allows a Great Flood to rid the earth of the Nephilim, but first sends Uriel to warn Noah so as not to eradicate the human race. The Watchers are bound “in the valleys of the Earth” until Judgment Day. (Jude verse 6 says that these fallen angels are kept “in everlasting chains under darkness” until Judgment Day.)
In Aronofsky’s movie, these fallen angels are actually good guys that help Noah build the ark…
 
This is the film that will introduce most of the country to the Watchers. At the end of the movie, instead of receiving judgment, the fallen angels get to ascend to heaven as they die defending Noah’s ark from a violent horde of people trying to board it. I’m sad that one of my favorite actresses, Jennifer Connelly would participate in this project. Jennifer and Russell Crowe made a wonderful movie,“A Beautiful Mind”. But, now, they seem to have lost their minds. Forgive them for they know not what they do!
 
The most worrisome thing at the moment is that many people around the globe could end up seeing this movie over the next several years, and instead of learning about one of the most important events in human history, they are going to be manipulated in getting a twisted version of the story that is almost totally opposite of what it should be.
 
Fact is that fallen angels are real, they really did mate with human women, and the Nephilim really did exist.
 
And Noah really did exist as well, and Jesus told us that we should learn from him, because the days when Jesus returns will be very much like the days of Noah. In [Matthew 24:37-39] it says the following…
 
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”
 
Through his latest ‘Noah movie’, the director of the film, Darren Aronofsky – who by the way is of Ukrainian descent – is committing a blasphemous sin of defaming the biblical Noah and the ramifications of it against the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
 
The Bible calls these types of slanderers “false witness”. Where do the “false witness” of Character Assassination come from:
 
For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander. These are what defile you. Eating with unwashed hands will never defile you.” [Matthew 15:19-20]
 
[Proverbs 6:16] also says: “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:… A false witness that speaks lies,” [Proverbs 6:19]
 

Earthquake in California: This Fault Could Bring an Earthquake Worse Than ‘The Big One’

185 AR

 
The Puente Hills fault, which scientists believe could be responsible for Friday’s 5.1 earthquake in La Habra, is considered very dangerous.
 
The Puente Hills thrust fault is so dangerous because of its location, running from the suburbs of northern Orange County, through the San Gabriel Valley and under the skyscrapers of downtown Los Angeles before ending in Hollywood.
