Liberal France has taken another look at its immigrant policy. It has a large population of Muslims and has found it has a problem. France is attempting to send some of the militants back home.

Most of the world hates God and His law. The U.N. is an example of the nations of the world.

There is another story of large proportions and it is not being reported properly. It is political and very sad. We as a people ought to be ashamed for not speaking up loudly about what is happening.

Sudan: Darfur Crisis Deepens As Adventist Churches Are Destroyed


May 28, 2004 Darfur, Sudan .... [Alex Elmadjian/Paul Yithak/ANN]


Seventh-day Adventist churches in the Abu Garajil and Juruf districts of the Darfur region of western Sudan have been destroyed during the escalating humanitarian and security crisis unfolding there, church leaders say.

"Our members have been displaced. They are without food, clothing or shelter to sleep under," reports William Kabi Oliver, a pastor and district leader for the Adventist Church in the area.

In spite of their difficulties and constant threat to personal security, Oliver says that the members are eagerly gathering for worship services. "Since the forest there is not thick, they find it difficult even to shelter under the trees for services. Instead they prefer to worship in the evening when the sun goes down because during the day you cannot bear the hot sun."

Paul Yithak, secretary for the Adventist Church's regional headquarters in northern Sudan, explains how the situation in Darfur has been tragically excluded from the peace talks currently underway to end decades of civil war between the governing authorities of the North and South. "May 27 was a remarkable day in the history of Sudan. The two warring parties have signed very important protocols for power sharing. These agreements are major steps toward lasting peace in Sudan. But we still have the war in Darfur, which is considered to be the worst human tragedy on the face of the earth at the moment."

The Brussels-based International Crisis Group confirms this assertion. In their May 23, 2004 report, they state, "A month after the international community solemnly marked the tenth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide in April 2004 with promises of 'never again,' it faces a man-made humanitarian catastrophe in western Sudan [Darfur] that can easily become nearly as deadly."

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA), the humanitarian arm of the Adventist Church, sent a crisis assessment team to the region April 24 through 30 this year. Observations published in their May bulletin are equally grim: "In general, all internally displaced people are living in miserable conditions, having lost all their belongings and all their livestock except for one or two starved donkeys. Crops and houses have been burned down and agricultural land is inaccessible due to insecurity."

ADRA's initial response will be centered on the area of water and sanitation with the overall goal of improving the health of the people.

Responding to the news from Darfur, Pastor Peter Roennfeldt, responsible for the Adventist Church's Global Mission evangelism projects in the Trans-European region, incorporating Sudan, said, "This is an extremely difficult and tragic situation for our people. Of course we are saddened to hear of the destruction of these church buildings--however, we are even more concerned about the injury and death suffered by the people."

From reading the ANN story you would never know what the battle is all about. It is a Muslim "holy" war against Christians. Against our brothers and sisters. It has been going on for a long time.

According to the liberal press in Europe and the U.S., Muslims are unhappy with the U.S. because of Israel, therefore all the violence. Not so. Muslims are active all over the world against more than Israel and the U.S. The following story ought to touch the hearts of all who read. Christianity does not have as a basic tenant, violence against infidels as does Islam.

*****************************************

"Sudan's militant Muslim regime is slaughtering Christians who refuse to convert to Islam, according to the head of an aid group who recently returned from the African nation."  There is much more, please read the stories linked.

From September 1999:  

After 16 years of civil war pitting the mainly Muslim north against the Christians and animists of the south, "the government at the top level knows that we have to tolerate one another,"Rorec said. "We admit there are some atrocities or mistakes that are being committed. This it will take us time to correct."

Sudan's war began in 1983 when the south rebelled against northerners' attempts to impose Islamic law and against what southerners' contend was discrimination and unfair allocation of government resources by the north.

The division is also based on ethnicity: The north is largely Arab and the south mostly African. Sudan's 26 million people belong to 20 ethnic groups, with about three-fifths of the population  Muslim and the rest Christian or of tribal faiths."

Thailand has been having a problem with Muslim violence. The country is 95% Buddhist. No one seems to know exactly what is going on here in the predominantly Muslim southern tip of Thailand. Mysterious insurgents are terrorizing the countryside, bewildering the government in Bangkok and raising fears that radical Islamic groups from outside Thailand may have found a new base in Southeast Asia.

The United States is looking at the problem in Sudan. It is interesting that the silence continues as to the "religious" nature of the killings. The BBC story calls it "ethnic". Not a mention of religion. BBC

All the events about the upsurge of Muslim power is trying and scarey for us these days, but Bible prophecy seems to indicate that the Muslims will not be  major players in the Time of Trouble.  The Muslims, Apostate Christians, Hindu's, and non-religious will bow to the Papacy and take the Mark of the Beast.  Apparently the Muslim problem will "dry up" like the Euphrates when the Four Winds are loosed.  I think it is the "coming great calamity" that sister White speaks of, that we need to be looking for next. That will change the course of the whole world and usher in the Papacy as the total world force. That's how I'm reading the Adventist prophetic studies.

A group calling itself the Islambouli Brigades claimed responsibility Friday, for the downing of two Russian planes on a militant Muslim web site, Associated Press reports.

Mos News

It seems that we easily overlook the degree of Muslim violence in the world today. There is no peace and safety anywhere in the world. In a moment a whole city in any country can be destroyed by people who believe they are serving God. As in the first and second woe, God is allowing this evil to come upon a world that has rejected His truth and His love. We can expect that the violence will continue. It is impossible to protect against this type of evil at every point. Only God can protect and He will protect those who love, reverence, and obey Him.

Sister Restin, it would be a great blessing if the "Muslim problem" would dry up quickly. The longer it goes on and the more broad its extent, the more interested I am in seeing it in prophecy. It keeps coming to my mind that the first two  woes were in response to the wickedness in the church. You don't suppose there is a similar action taking place today?

Today was a special day for Muslim terrorists world-wide. France is reaping what it has sown. Two French reporters have been taken hostage by Muslim terrorists and they are demanding that France repeal its head scarf ban that is to go into effect today.

Twelve Nepalese workers in Irag were murdered by Muslim terrorists because they were working in Iraq.   Philladelphis Inquirer

The two crashed Russian jets are now believed to have been the work of Islamic terrorists as was a bomb blast last night in Russia that killed eight and wounded 50.

Today, 400 are being held hostage in a Russian school. 200 are believed to be students who have been targeted for death if any of the terrorists are injured or killed.  The hostages have threatened "for every destroyed fighter, they will kill 50 children and for every injured fighter 20   (children)," the ITAR-Tass news agency reported.   IDS News

Kind of makes you wonder what is going on. How many Muslims are there world-wide?

They did it today. They killed hundreds of the hostages including many children. This will open the eyes of many who have been slow to condemn Muslim violence.  It ought to provoke questions about violence in other religions also. It gives us opportunity to point to Christ and His ways and how there are false "Christian" churches.

Here is a thought for our Muslim friends to consider and also those of other religious faiths. Jesus is called a Savior for a good reason. The Jews in Christ day did not understand. The Roman Catholics don't understand, Hindus, Buddhists, and Pantheists don't understand. Jesus is the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world. He is our sacrifice. There is no other sacrifice acceptable to God.

Muslims cannot earn salvation. They do not understand this. They believe and are taught that they can make themselves acceptable to God. They believe murdering their enemies and their enemies children will make them more acceptable in God's eyes...that it will earn them something. It will not.

If we go back to the Old Testament which the Jews, the Muslims, and Christians accept as the Word of God we find there the lessons that point to Jesus as the only acceptable sacrifice for sin. Man cannot earn salvation, it is a free gift from the God of heaven. Here is a lesson for our Muslim friends to learn. They have been deceived about the character of God and the plan of salvation. As they learn the lesson God intends from the offering of Isaac, they will see that God's love is revealed in the death of Christ.

We sympathize with Muslims who for over eighteen hundred years have witnessed a very poor representation of Christianity. They have had the true gospel hidden from their eyes to a great degree. They have not been given a correct interpretation of the sacrificial system that pointed to Christ as the Sacrifice for sin. We pray that those of the Muslim faith who are honest of heart will seek after God with the whole heart and will find Him.

Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

Jesus was crucified by the Jews because He was a rebuke to their error and sin. Jesus claimed to be God in the flesh and the Jews saw this as an excuse to kill Him. To call oneself God was worthy of death. Their Saviour came to save them and they knew Him not.

The Muslim may understand that Christ is not just a prophet, but that He is the Son of God and did not remain in the grave. He lives today as the Saviour for all humanity including the Muslim. It is His Spirit that speaks to the conscience of all men.
