Muslims burn church leaving 12 people dead

CAIRO – Relations between Egypt’s Muslims and Christians degenerated to a new low Sunday after riots overnight left 12 people dead and a church burned, adding to the disorder of the country’s post-revolution transition to democracy.

The attack on the church was the latest sign of assertiveness by an extreme, ultraconservative movement of Muslims known as Salafis, whose increasing hostility toward Egypt’s Coptic Christians over the past few months has met with little interference from the country’s military rulers.

Salafis have been blamed for other recent attacks on Christians and others they don’t approve of. In one attack, a Christian man had an ear cut off for renting an apartment to a Muslim woman suspected of involvement in prostitution.

The latest violence, which erupted in fresh clashes Sunday between Muslims and Christians who pelted each other with stones in another part of Cairo, also pointed to what many see as reluctance of the armed forces council to act. The council took temporary control of the country after President Hosni Mubarak was deposed on Feb. 11.

After the overnight clashes in the slum of Imbaba, residents turned their anger toward the military. Some said they and the police did almost nothing to intervene in the five-hour frenzy of violence.

Analysts warned of signs of Coptic violence, especially with reports that some Christians have opened fire at Muslims.

“The Coptic volcano is exploding,” Coptic expert Youssef Sedhom said. “How would Copts respond if they find their back to the wall facing guns? They would have no option but self defense,” adding, “don’t blame Copts for what they do.”

My Comment:

The violence against those that believe in Jesus Christ will worsen. These are one of the signs Our Messiah spoke would occur prior to his coming, and time and tiem again Jesus Christ has proven that his words will always remain true.

Luke 21:12-19

12 “But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you. They will hand you over to synagogues and put you in prison, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. 13 And so you will bear testimony to me. 14 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. 15 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. 16 You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. 17 Everyone will hate you because of me. 18 But not a hair of your head will perish. 19 Stand firm, and you will win life.

Stand firm. Trust in God completely. We are but a short time here on Earth, but will be with Our King Forever.

To those who have not accepted Jesus, it is not too late to repent for the Word of God says the Kingdom of Heaven is near, and it is the complete Truth!

  1. God is about to pour out His wrath on apostate Christianity. All these things are prophesied in the OT, especially Jeremiah and Ezekial. “Coptic” Christianity is NOT true Christianity. I don’t even like to call myself “Christian” anymore because of so many false, man made, government controlled denominations or “daughters of the Harlot” as the Bible refers to them. I call myself a follower of the Truth (Jesus/John 14:6). This looks like the beginning stages of the tares being bundled together and burned, just as God’s word said. “Let both (wheat and tares) grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles (false church denominations) to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” Matthew 13:29,30 All followers of the Truth have heard His voice to “come out of her (harlot organized religion) My people…” Rev 18:4 God will destroy all the false “churches” on every street corner. The true church is the scattered body of Christ and the elect bride not buildings with Freemasonic steeples protuding proudly to let the Devil’s children know who really controls them and their blind sheep. “You erected your shrine at the head of every road, and built your high place in every street. Yet you were not like a harlot, because you scorned payment. You are an adulterous wife, who takes strangers (pastors, priests, etc. taught by freemasonic controlled seminaries) instead of her husband (Christ). Men make payment to all harlots, but you made your payments to all your lovers, and HIRED them to come to you from all around for your harlotry. ~Ezekial 16:31-33
    “My hand will be against the prophets (pastors, priests, etc.) who envision futility and who divine lies; they shall not be in the assembly of My people, nor be written in the record of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter into the land of Israel (Kingdom of God). ~Ezekial 13:9
    “Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark (has Holy Spirit of Truth); and begin at My sanctuary.” ~Ezekial 9:6
    “I have not sat with idolatrous (pastor, priest-worshipping) mortals, Nor will I go in with hypocrites. I have hated the assembly of evildoers, And will not sit with the wicked.” ~Psalm 26:4,5

      My comment:

      We must not let false Christians steal our birthright to call our self Christians. Sometimes I tell “Christians” that I am a follower of Jesus. Than I ask them: Are you? Do you really walk on Earth the way Jesus walked the Earth?
