In northern Nigeria, Muslims have instituted Sharia Law—the strictest Islamic legal code. Christians dominate the Nigerian population, so the Islamic leaders insist that the law only applies to domestic matters for Muslims. However, the Christians know better. Hundreds of their churches have already been destroyed. If they are rebuilt, they are burned down again. Many Christians are being martyred.

    In the city of Kaduna in northern Nigeria, one church leader claims that Muslim extremists have placed a bounty on the heads of all Christian leaders, offering one hundred thousand naira (about one thousand U.S. dollars) for each one killed. Likewise, there was also a bounty on Christ’s head, and he was betrayed for just thirty pieces of silver.
    With the continued threat, some believers are contemplating fighting back. But one Christian leader recently challenged believers in Kaduna: “In the midst of this we need to remember our Lord’s teaching about turning evil to good and patiently suffering in the face of what is happening. And because Nigeria is a proclaimed democracy, there is a responsibility for Christians to make sure everyone is treated justly and fairly.”
    Christ delivered a similar challenge almost two thousand years ago: “‘Love the Lord your God’ . . . This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’” (Matthew 22:37–39).

It was midnight when officers burst into their home and abruptly awakened Eskinder Menghis and his wife and three children. They walked out to find agents with Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Interior ransacking their home.

    “What are you doing? You have no right to destroy our home like this.”
    “And you have no right to practice your religion in the land of Mohammed! You were warned before you came to leave your religion behind.” The officer pushed Eskinder out the door as the others gathered up the Bibles, hymnals, photos albums, audiotapes, and anything else they could use as evidence.
    Eskinder was brought to the police headquarters for interrogation, leaving behind his frightened wife and children. Eskinder and his family are Ethiopian Christians. They are among the many foreigners who make up one-third of Saudi Arabia’s population, working in the oil-rich nation. Many of these foreigners are Christians who face a terrible predicament when it comes to expressing their faith.
    Many Christians never intend to practice their faith when they go to work in a Muslim nation. But once under the dark cloud of Islam, they begin to look toward heaven and find fellowship with other believers around them. Many even start to witness to their Muslim employers. In Saudi Arabia, converting a Muslim to Christianity carries a death penalty for both parties.

O LORD, you persuaded me, and I allowed myself to be persuaded. You are stronger than I am, and you overpowered me. Now I am mocked by everyone in the city. Whenever I speak, the words come out in a violent outburst. “Violence and destruction!” I shout. So these messages from the LORD have made me a household joke. And I can’t stop! If I say I’ll never mention the LORD or speak in his name, his word burns in my heart like a fire. It’s like a fire in my bones! I am weary of holding it in! I have heard the many rumors about me. They call me “The Man Who Lives in Terror.” And they say, “If you say anything, we will report it.” Even my old friends are watching me, waiting for a fatal slip. “He will trap himself,” they say, “and then we will get our revenge on him.” But the LORD stands beside me like a great warrior. Before him they will stumble. They cannot defeat me. They will be shamed and thoroughly humiliated. Their dishonor will never be forgotten. Jeremiah 20:7-11

The spirit that is personified in the radical Islamic religion and the radical homosexual movement is a spirit of hate and intolerance. It shall not relent until it has shut the mouth of all of Christendom. Hear and see their testimony!

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit saith.
