Today, it is a commonly known fact that all over the world, many Muslims leave Islam on a daily basis and embrace Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Their numbers are so high and every day so many more of them come to Jesus that nobody really knows how many Muslim background Christians are around us. Continue reading “The Need for Disciple Makers”
During the recent years more and more Muslims, mainly men, have been legally or illegally immigrating to non-Muslim countries. South Africa has been the favourite destination of immigration especially for the Pakistani and Bangladeshi Muslims. Continue reading “From Muslim Immigrants To Christian Preachers”
One of the key characteristics of Islam is that it is a religion of lies and deception. So much so that, Allah, the god of Islam, introduces himself as the “best of deceivers” in the Quran (3:54; 7:99 and 8:30). Continue reading “Let Them Know The Truth”
Islam is a religion of fear. It rules by fear. Most Muslim never decided to be a Muslim. Since the day they were born Islam has been forced upon them. They were told again and again that if they ever question or oppose Islam, they would be severely punished. Continue reading “Let Them Be Courageous”
The Need for Modern-day Ananias’
Saul would have never become the Saint Paul without the courageous obedience and initiatives of Ananias. Saul was confronted and converted by Jesus on the way to Damascus (Act 9:1-9). However, it was Ananias who baptised and possibly sheltered and discipled Saul (Act 9:10-25). Continue reading “The Need for Modern-day Ananias’”
From Terrorist to Saint
Perhaps, the most fascinating conversion story in the New Testament is the story of Saul. As a staunch religious leader, he persecuted the followers of Jesus Christ. He was instrumental in starting the “great persecution” against Christians in Jerusalem as he supervised the stoning to death of Stephen (Act 8:1). Continue reading “From Terrorist to Saint”
Married to a Muslim
During the second half of the 20th century and in the 21st century, increasing numbers of Western Christian women converted to Islam after marrying Muslim men. This is partly due to the fact that many Muslim men intentionally target vulnerable Christian ladies to lure them into Islam via marriage. Continue reading “Married to a Muslim”
“So don’t worry, saying, ‘What will we eat? ’ or ‘What will we drink? ’ or ‘What will we wear? ’For the idolaters eagerly seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.” (Matt 6:31-33, HCSB).
According to these words of Jesus, believers should not run after things such as food and clothing but rather seek God’s kingdom. The concepts of food and clothing in these words boil down to money. Naturally, money is the top priority for mankind as they work and fight for money.
However, the top priority of Christians shall not be money but God’s Kingdom. We shall prioritise God’s kingdom above money and all earthly gains. At the same time we shall trust Jesus for the provision of our needs as He assures us that God will provide for us.
Let us check our hearts and life-styles, repent and re-prioritise if we have been doing it wrong.
Lets work hard for God’s Kingdom. Lets fight for truth and freedom of faith. Lets work and fight to give others the freedom and the opportunities to know, to love and to worship God freely. Also remember, today we are able to freely learn about God and worship God because some men such as Martin Luther and King Jan III Sobieski worked and fought very hard to give us this freedom and opportunities to love and serve God.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil 4:4-7, ESV2011). Continue reading “Come, let us present our nation to God”
