SAUDI ARABIA ] tu hai un TALMUD a cui fu dato il nome: di: nobile sacro, CORANO, parola increata di Dio
NON TE NE FARE UNA COLPA AMICO MIO SHARIA SALAFITA SALMAN! TUTTI GLI ENLIGHTENED COME TE, SONO OSSESSIONATI E COSTRETTI DA SATANA A LEGGERE I MIEI ARTICOLI! PENSA CHE IL TUO MORTO FRATELLO ALL'INFERNO? LUI HA ANCHE FINTO DI FARE IL MORTO PUR DI POTER SFUGGIRE ALLA SUA COSCIENZA DI ASSASSINO! PERCHé è SATANA A COSTRINGERVI? OVVIAMENTE, LUI è GELOSO E VUOLE VEDERE SE QUALCUNO DI VOI LO TRADISCE! COSì PUò FARVI TERRORIZZARE: RECIPROCAMENTE, AVENDO VOI, SEMPRE PAURA L'UNO DELL'ALTRO NEL NWO! IN QUESTO MODO VOI ASPETTATE LA MORTE COME UNA LIBERAZIONE, MA SOLTANTO PERCHé, VOI NON AVETE ESPERIENZA DI QUELLO CHE VI ATTENDE ALL'INFERNO! Iraq: come stanno i cristiani a Baghdad, Sintesi: l'attenzione dei media è concentrata sulle zone di conflitto in Iraq, ma la guerra continua anche a Baghdad. L'estate scorsa, 76 persone sono state uccise in  un unico attentato. Diversi cristiani sono stati rapiti negli ultimi mesi e alcuni sono stati uccisi. Come fa una chiesa a sopravvivere in Iraq? E cosa può imparare la Chiesa di tutto il mondo da questa situazione? Per rispondere a queste domande abbiamo intervistato il pastore Farouk di Baghdad. Come stanno i cristiani nella vostra chiesa a Baghdad?
Nonostante tutta la violenza subita, cerchiamo di vivere il più possibile la nostra vita in modo normale. Andiamo a lavorare, prendiamo i bambini da scuola e ci visitiamo l'un l'altro. Ogni sera abbiamo attività presso la chiesa e la maggior parte dei credenti sono attivi. La guerra, purtroppo, è diventata normale a Baghdad. Subiamo attentati, seppelliamo i morti e proseguiamo. Ne siamo afflitti, ma tutti questi anni di guerra hanno indurito la nostra pelle.
Come fate ad andare avanti in questo modo? Non è facile. In guerra si potrebbe dire che anche i bambini nascono con l'ansia. Fortunatamente, negli ultimi 5 anni, nessuno nella nostra chiesa è morto a causa della guerra, ma ognuno ha la propria storia. Molti hanno sperimentato perdite: di familiari o di beni. Viviamo continuamente discriminazione, rifiuto, risentimento e amarezza oltre alla mancanza di pace. Cerchiamo di curare le ferite interiori della nostra gente. Facciamo molta consulenza e formiamo dei giovani collaboratori. Non posso dire che questo sia abbastanza, ma facciamo quello che possiamo e preghiamo per ciò che non possiamo fare.
Come influisce la minaccia dell'ISIS sulle persone a Baghdad? E' stato un campanello d'allarme. Come cristiani, abbiamo bisogno di restare fermi nella nostra identità. Milioni di persone hanno perso tutto, ma alcuni hanno trovato Cristo. Alla nostra chiesa, l'afflusso di sfollati interni ha dato l'opportunità di praticare il cristianesimo vero, per aiutare tutti coloro che hanno bisogno; non importa se sono cristiani come noi o meno. Dio ci ha chiesto di essere amorevoli con tutti.
Quale è il ruolo di Dio nella vostra vita? Dio è tutto per noi. Ci guida e manda le persone giuste sul nostro cammino. Ci dona pace e gioia, nonostante la situazione. Sperimentiamo la Sua guarigione interiore e la Sua libertà. Davvero, non siamo nulla senza di Lui; la speranza è solo in Lui.     13 gennaio 2016: online la WWL2016! Appuntamento al 13 gennaio 2016 per l'uscita della nuova World Watch List 2016. La World Watch List è la lista dei 50 paesi dove la persecuzione dei cristiani è più forte.

ITALIA è UNA COLONIA DI UK ] TUTTO DOCUMENTATO [ Pubblicato il 12 nov 2015 https://youtu.be/yE81l3449rg  I nuovi documenti desecretati UK testimoniano delle manovre eversive del Regno Unito per manipolare e controllare l'Italia fin dal secondo dopo guerra, e portano dritti dritti alla morte di Enrico Mattei e di Aldo Moro. Sono agghiaccianti, parlano di manovre eversive e della necessità, fallita l'idea di realizzare un rovesciamento del Governo, di agire con i servizi segreti di Sua Maestà.

NON PUò L'EGITTO DIVENTARE UN GIGANTE MILITARE, SE è DALLA PARTE DEI SAUDITI, CHE GLI HANNO COMPRATO LE MISTRAL.. Egyptian warplanes pound ISIS affiliated groups in Southern Gaza Region. The Egyptian security forces killed 15 suspected Islamic State terrorists in an eight-hour raid in North Sinai on Thursday, Egyptian media reported. The raids targeted Ansar Bait al-Maqdis, a group that pledged allegiance to Islamic State, a security source told the Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry al-Youm. Arab witnesses in the Gazan side of Rafah said that Egyptian warplanes hit targets on the Egyptian side of Rafah. Video obtained by Reuters showed what the cameraman said was an Egyptian warplane flying over Gaza, followed by the sound of an air strike and a cloud of black smoke rising from Rafah. Meanwhile, terrorists in Sinai shelled a home near a security checkpoint in Rafah, killing an entire family of five and wounding a neighbor, AP quoted Egyptian officials as saying. Watch Here. The Egyptian Army has demolished thousands of homes on the Egyptian side of Rafah during the past year to create a buffer zone with nearby Gaza, an effort by Egypt to end smuggling of arms via secret tunnels. Egypt decided in November 2014 to double the width of the security buffer zone after an outbreak of some of the worst anti-state violence since ousted president Mohamed Morsi was overthrown in 2013. Separately, Russia signed an agreement with Egypt to deliver 46 Ka-52 attack helicopters, the director- general of the JSC Russian Helicopters holding company, Alexander Mikheyev, said on Wednesday, Tass Russian News Agency reported. “A large agreement for delivery of 46 Ka-52 Alligator helicopters has been signed with Egypt through [the state weaponry trading company] Rosoboronexport,” he said.

FINCHé President Al-Sisi NON CONDANNA LA SHARIA? QUESTA è TUTTA UNA CONGIURA CONTRO ISRAELE, EUROPA E CONTRO TUTTO IL RESTO DEL MONDO! President Al-Sisi STA CIRCONDANDO ISRAELE! ] [ Egyptian President Al-Sisi Delivers Speech That May Change the World Forever. ] QUESTO DISCORSO? è UNA TRAPPOLA [ In a speech delivered at Al-Azhar at the end of 2014, Egyptian President Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sisi called to combat extremist ideology and said: “We need to revolutionize our religion.” Calling for “religious discourse that is in keeping with its times,” Al-Sisi warned that “the Islamic nation is being torn apart and destroyed” by extremism. There is something very levelheaded about Egypt’s president. Since entering office in June 2014, Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sisi, has incorporated reforms meant to strengthen Egypt’s economy, improve education, overcome the country’s energy crisis, the expansion of the Suez Canal project, and, perhaps most importantly for world peace and stability, Al-Sasi would like Islam to be perceived as more tolerant and this speech to Muslim clergymen is part of a long process of creating a democratic, religiously tolerant country. Al-Sasi has made changes in school textbooks which discuss Islam and in the second video is seen delivering a speech to Egyptian Christians at the Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Cairo during their Christmas mass. Al-Sasi has bravely begun to lead Egypt on a road towards tolerance and democracy. If only other Muslim countries would follow.

eih, SALMAN SAUDI ARABIA, TU HAI FIRMATO QUESTA PETIZIONE CONTRO DI TE? Al menos 15 muertos en el ataque de hoy de Boko Haram en Maiduguri (Nigeria) Apoyo internacional para los cristianos de Nigeria. Los cristianos en Nigeria sufren persecución diaria por parte de Boko Haram. En los últimos 6 años han sido asesinados 150.000 personas. En la diócesis de Maiduguri han destruído 50 capillas e iglesias. Cerca de 60.000 de los 125.000 fieles de la diócesis han tenido que abandonar sus casas. Los que permanecen conviven con el trauma y el miedo. Necesitan agua potable, medicina y vivienda. El país necesita ayuda política, económica y militar. Le pido que no mire para otro lado, redoble las políticas de cooperación y refuerce a la coalición internacional de países africanos que combate a Boko Haram. Atentamente, #BastaYA
Escribe a la UE, ONU y Unión de Estados Africanos y pídeles que frenen de una vez la BARBARIE
Hola, lorenzoJHWH ] [ Probablemente pocos medios lo contarán, pero esta mañana Boko Haram ha vuelto a atacar en Maiduguri (Nigeria) con AK47 y granadas. Iban 10 suicidas y la cifra de muertos de momento asciende a 15. Como recordarás, el obispo de Maiduguri pedía hace unas semanas que hubiera una posición más firme por parte de la comunidad internacional. ¿Quieres sumarte al pedido? Tu mensaje llegará a la Unión Europea, ONU y Unión de Estados Africanos http://citizengo.org/es/sy/30920-ayuda-y-solidaridad-con-cristianos-nigerianos
Si ya firmaste, por favor, comparte este petición. La situación en Nigeria es DRAMATICA.
Por si fuera poco, el ataque se produce a los pocos días de que el presidente nigeriano afirmase que la banda yihadista estaba “técnicamente derrotada”. O erró en el cálculo o hay vínculos inconfesables… El caso es que es el genocidio de cristianos continúa… ¡¡en plena Navidad!! Debemos de pararlo. Por favor, escribe a los organismos internacionales y pideles una actuación firme que frene la barbarie. http://citizengo.org/es/sy/30920-ayuda-y-solidaridad-con-cristianos-nigerianos Leo en la prensa española el testimonio de Godiya Ousman, una mujer de unos 50 años que lleva 20 meses huyendo el error. Ahora se encuentra en el Chad, refugiada en una choza con 3 ollas. Ese es su hogar… Esto es lo que dice: “Los cristianos de Nigeria estamos sufriendo mucho (…) Si ven que un cristiano sale a vender algo al mercado, en uno o dos minutos aparecen, te matan y nadie dice nada”. Tremendo…
El salesiano argentino Jorge Casafulli, lleva 20 años en Africa. Acaba de instalarse en el norte de Nigeria. Su testimonio también es muy impactante: “Los cristianos no tienen acceso a cargos públicos, no se puede predicar a Cristo abiertamente en las calles, no se permite la manifestación pública de fe (…) Si no te conviertes, la alternativa es la tortura o la muerte”
¿Hasta cuando va a seguir la comunidad internacional mirando para otro lado?
http://citizengo.org/es/sy/30920-ayuda-y-solidaridad-con-cristianos-nigerianos
Gracias por tu solidaridad. Gracias por aportar tu graito de arena en frenar esta barbarie. Nuestros hermanos nigerianos están dando muestra de fe, fortaleza y esperanza. Lo mínimo que cabe es devolverles algo de solidaridad, Un fuerte abrazo, Luis Losada Pescador y todo el equipo de CitizenGO PD1. ¡Paremos el genocidio cristiano en Navidad! Escribe a los organismos internacionales y pídeles que paren la barbarie de Boko Haram. PD2. Un grupo de amigos están ahora en Iraq. Fueron a vivir la Navidad con los cristianos refugiados.

    QUANDO ONU AMNESTY UE USA E NATO NON SANNO DI AVERE LA LINGUA! Le giovani vittime del regime turco. 06.01.2016 Tra il 26 luglio e il 30 novembre 2015 il regime turco ha causato la morte di 44 bambini curdi tra i 35 giorni e i 18 anni di età. Secondo il rapporto stilato da Humanist Bureau, organizzazione attiva dal 2010, la cui missione è quella di portare all'attenzione dell'opinione pubblica in Turchia i diritti dei bambini, tra il 26 luglio e il 30 novembre 2015, il regime turco ha provocato la morte di 44 bambini curdi.
Il più piccolo, un bimbo di appena 35 giorni, il più grande un ragazzo di 18 anni. In Turchia, ne parlano il quotidiano Cumhuriyet e la rivista satirica LeMan, la quale rende omaggio alle giovani vittime con un'illustrazione a tema in prima pagina. Teatro dei tristi eventi le città di Diyarbekir, Şırnak, Ağrı, Istanbul, Mardin, Van, Ankara, Hakkâri e Adana. Sono almeno 52 i bambini feriti. Turchia, serie raid militari uccidono centinaia di ribelli curdi. Stando al rapporto di Humanist Bureau, le morti e le ferite subite dai giovani curdi sono state provocate da diversi fattori. Alcuni hanno perso la vita a causa dell'esplosione di una bomba, altri sono morti per l'impossibilità di accedere alle cure mediche o per le percosse della polizia, altri ancora sono stati uccisi nel corso di una manifestazione o mentre giocavano nel parco davanti alla propria casa: http://it.sputniknews.com/mondo/20160106/1842705/bambini-giovani-vittime-regime-turco.html#ixzz3wTlw7NJm
Alla Polonia serve la “minaccia russa” per rafforzare l'esercito sfruttando la NATO. [ SOLTANTO LA LEGA ARABA STA INVADENDO LE NAZIONI, NON CON I MIGRANTI, E NANCHE CON LA SUA RELIGIONE, MA CON LA SUA IDEOLOGIA NAZISMO SHARIA: TUTTO IL GENERE UMANO è PER QUESTO SOTTO MINACCIA DI TERRORISMO MONDIALE  ] 06.01.2016)  Le forti dichiarazioni di Varsavia sulla grave minaccia proveniente dalla Russia si basano sul nulla. In realtà la Polonia cerca di schierare le truppe della NATO sulle spalle degli altri membri dell'Alleanza, scrive sulla rivista “The National Interest” Doug Bandow, esperto presso il Cato Institute. La Polonia cerca di schierare le truppe NATO sul suo territorio e ricorda sempre la "minaccia russa", mentre gli altri Paesi europei non percepiscono la Russia come una forza che minacci la loro esistenza, scrive l'analista del Cato Institute ed ex assistente speciale del presidente Ronald Reagan Doug Bandow nel suo articolo per "The National Interest". Come Paese ospitante del vertice della NATO nel 2016, la Polonia ha messo in chiaro che il suo obiettivo principale nei prossimi mesi sarà quello di mettere pressioni sui membri dell'Alleanza in modo che forniscano aiuti militari. Come annunciato dal governo polacco, i leader mondiali si riuniranno a luglio a Varsavia per discutere di come "affrontare più efficacemente le minacce", compresa "l'aggressività della Russia". Ora le autorità polacche chiedono il dislocamento delle truppe della NATO sul suo territorio e contemporaneamente cercano di stringere un accordo con Londra. In cambio, i polacchi promettono di contribuire a "limitare il flusso di migranti in Gran Bretagna", scrive Doug Bandow. Allo stesso tempo la maggior parte degli Stati membri europei della NATO riduce le spese militari. I membri europei della NATO, ad eccezione dell'Estonia, della Grecia (per contrastare la Turchia) e della Polonia (per la prima volta in assoluto) non arrivano a spendere per la difesa nemmeno il 2% del PIL, come richiesto ai membri della NATO. "Anche il 2% è poco se si è certi che il proprio Paese veda minacciata la propria esistenza a seguito dell'aggressività di una forza autoritaria. Eppure la Polonia si sente vulnerabile ai confini orientali della NATO ed esprime forte preoccupazione per la "minaccia russa." Non volendo investire un soldo, Varsavia conta sul fatto che gli altri membri della NATO si carichino dell'onere di proteggerla,"- si dice nell'articolo. Naturalmente la "minaccia russa" non è così grande dal momento che la Polonia fa affidamento sugli altri. Secondo l'autore, è giunto il momento per l'Europa di provvedere autonomamente alla propria sicurezza. L'imprescindibilità della NATO con al centro gli Stati Uniti è ormai venuta a mancare alcuni anni fa. Ora serve una nuova alleanza militare che costringa l'Europa ad investire nella propria sicurezza, come ora si stanno facendo carico gli USA. http://it.sputniknews.com/mondo/20160106/1843823/Russia-Europa-USA-Difesa-Geopolitica.html#ixzz3wTnDGNHw

COLONIA, 6 GEN - La polizia di Colonia ritiene che gli aggressori che a Capodanno hanno molestato o anche stuprato decine di donne alla stazione fossero organizzati, fossero almeno 1.000 e che abbiano agito in piccoli gruppi, che circondavano donne isolate anche con lo scopo di rapinarle. Tre di loro sono stati identificati, ma non ancora arrestati.  ROMA, 6 GEN - Un 'codice' di comportamento rivolto alle donne al fine di prevenire orribili aggressioni come quella avvenuta a Colonia la notte di Capodanno è stato suggerito dalla sindaco della città tedesca. Lo riportano i media tedeschi. In particolare, Henriette Reker ha raccomandato alle donne di "tenere dagli estranei una distanza equivalente alla lunghezza di un braccio" nei luoghi pubblici, di non isolarsi dal proprio gruppo, di chiedere aiuto a un passante o di chiamare la polizia.

Corsi anti-cristiani all'Università: Attenti, vogliono convertirvi ] [ Un seminario universitario, rivolto agli studenti islamici, per insegnare come difendersi dai cristiani. Dal loro proselitismo e dal rischio che possano esserci conversioni dalla fede di Maometto a quella di Gesù.
E' ciò che accade in Malaysia, dove il campus della Universiti Teknologi Mara di Kuala Lumpur, la capitale, ha organizzato dei seminari per mettere in guardia i musulmani dal pericolo di cristianizzazione: Attenti, vogliono convertirvi. Il mondo sta diventando sempre meno un posto per cristiani. Che in più parti del mondo subiscono umiliazioni e discriminazioni. Anche in Malaysia, una soietà multietnica, in cui l'Islam è la religione di stato ma in cui convivono il 40% di cittadini che hanno fedi diverse, dal buddismo all'induismo, passando per il cristianesimo. Eppure, nonostante le libertà di culto, l'Islam rimane la religione obbligatoria per i cittadini di origine malese, che se volessero abbandonare la fede in Allah, dovrebbero ottenere uno speciale permesso da un tribunale della Sharia. Che, ovviamente, lo concede malvolentieri.
Come racconta oggi La Stampa, la Federazione dei cristiani della Malaysia ha sollevato una forte polemica, defindendo l'apertura dei seminari all'università come un tentativo di diffondere propaganda e violenza settaria. Un modo per aumentare l'odio nei confronti dei cristiani. Immaginatevi se in Italia, in una università pubblica, fossero istituiti corsi per difendersi dall'islamizzazione. Ne verrebbe fuori un circolo di proteste e denunce di razzismo senza eguali.
Quando ad essere vittime sono i cristiani, invece, tutto rimane nel silenzio.

la Bibbia è una PAROLA INCREATA? no! Quindi ad eccezione dei 10 Comandamenti, può essere interpretata! MA IL CORANO è UNA PAROLA DOGMATICA INCREATA, QUINDI VOI POTETE UCCIDERE ISLAM, O POTETE ESSERE UCCISI DA ISLAM!
QUINDI la UNICA PAROLA INCREATA DELLA Bibbia ? SONO i 10 Comandamenti, EPPURE in realtà, nella sostanza quella è l'unica PAROLA di Dio, che il TALMUD destruttura e interpreta, dato che dice il Talmud, come le bambine dei goym a tre anni possono già essere stuprate!
poi, non ci vuole una grande scienza per capire, come e da chi i Maomettani hanno copiato il Corano, dopo la morte di Maometto, cioè dopo che lui è asceso da Geruslemme 7 anni dopo la sua morte! Islamici sono sempre stati ignoranti, ieri come oggi? sono sempre islamici, quindi il Corano increato merda? loro lo potevano copiare e pasticciare, soltanto partendo da testi bestia sacri precedenti soltanto! Infatti hanno usato i Vangeli Apocrifi, e il Talmud, che, proprio satana li ha scritti entrambi!
E PERCHé, secondo te, loro i Enlightened, Bildenberg Rothschild SpA FED, ecc.. massoni tutti, loro stanno sempre a fare le (RIFORME COSTITUZIONALI)? 1. per distruggere definitivamente, le sovranità dei popoli, e per: 2. santificare in pompa magna il Sodoma Darwin scimmia GENDER Satana LGBT, del posto cattivo sporco, ovviamente, il tutto senza nessun fondamento scientifico, ovviamente!

SAUDI ARABIA ] [ DOPOTUTTO CHE DIRITTI PIù DI TE , POSSONO AVERE GLI EBREI DI RIMANERE NELLA BIBBIA, MANCANDO A LORO LE GENEALOGIE PATERNE? L'AMORE MOLTIPLICA LE SUE RICCHEZZE, IO POSSO FARE ENTRARE NELLA BIBBIA, ANCHE, TUTTI COLORO CHE VOGLIONO ENTRARE, IN TUTTO IL MONDO, QUESTA è LA mia FRATELLANZA UNIVERSALE!
SAUDI ARABIA ] [ DOPOTUTTO quando i profeti nella Bibbia hanno detto: " IL DESERTO FIORIRà " loro sapevano che è il deserto della Arabia Saudita, e quello egiziano, che principalmete sarebbe fiorito.
chi è quella donna che ha detto; " LUI FA PAURA!", MA IO SONO SEMPRE LA LEGGE, e come ogni legge è sempre matematica, è qualcosa di prevedibile è razionale, mentre da una irrazionale Guerra Mondiale nucleare? tu non hai gli strumenti per uscirne razionalmente! TU PENSI CHE IO SONO LA TUA PAURA SOLTANTO PERCHé TU NON CONOSCI COSA VIENE DOPO DI ME!
POSSIAMO noi gestire l'odio: NON NE ABBIAMO TROPPO PAURA, perché nell'odio noi conserviamo il possesso, quindi, l'odio è razionale per noi. Mentre, essendo l'amore non razionale, poi, tutti abbiamo paura di amare! ed io sono il primo vigliacco dell'amore su questo pianeta, ma, ci dobbiamo lasciare andare alla corrente della vita, ci dobbiamo fidare, per perderci e perdere, PERCHé tutto vuole l'amore di noi! MA SE il CHICCO DI GRANO NON SI DONA TOTALMENTE ALLA MORTE DI SE? POI, NON CONOSCERà MAI IL MIRACOLO della RICCHEZZA E LA PROSPERITà DELLA VITA: il Paradiso è la felicità!
non è che l'amore non sia razionale, ma trascende la razionalità, dato che noi diciamo: "Dio è infinito amore!" non possiamo controllare l'AMORE, perché non possiamo controllare Dio! non è che l'amore non sia razionale, ma trascende la razionalità, dato che noi diciamo: "Dio è infinito amore!" non possiamo controllare l'AMORE, perché non possiamo controllare Dio!
========================
eppure nessuna legge prevede l'amore, perché obbiga soltanto a rispettare il comandamento, e poiché tutti sanno che Dio è AMORE, ecco perché, nessuna religione è salvifica! Gesù di Betlemme è stato la prima legge dell'amore universale, altruistico ed universale: perché ha detto: "ama il prossimo tuo come te stesso", ed ha dilatato il concetto di prossimo ad ogni uomo , iniziando da colui, chiunque, che ti è più vicino! "prossimo è il vicino fisicamente" Quindi Gesù è stata l'immagine più precisa di cosa significa: "Dio è amore infinito ed universale"PERCHé L'AMORE è LA LEGGE DELL'UNIVERSO ED IL SENSO DI TUTTE LE COSE! MENTRE I FARISEI HANNO MALEDETTO IL LORO STESSO POPOLO ED HANNO DETTO: "MA QUESTO POPOLO CHE NON CONOSCE LA LEGGE è MALEDETTO!" QUINDI LO HANNO MALEDETTO FACENDOGLI RINUNCIARE, CIOè PRIVANDOLO DELLE SUE GENEALOGIE PATERNE! IN QUESTO MODO LO HANNO ESCLUSO DALLE ALLEANZE E LO HANNO ESTROMESSO DALLA BIBBIA, Eppure la natura di Dio è quella di essere una PERSONA divina, Quindi Dio non è una filosofia, la sua caratteristica non è la legge: ECCO PERCHé PUò ESSERE DETTO: "NULLA è IMPOSSIBILE PER DIO!" QUINDI, Gesù era l'amore ed i Farisei Enlightened talmud kabbalah SpA FED, ecc... erano e sono i servi ABUSIVI IDOLATRI e cattivi, tutti abusivi nella casa di Dio, loro non entrano nel Regno di Dio ed impediscono agli altri di poterci entrare, ed ancora oggi è così, come Gesù disse!
la massoneria bancaria ha totalmente preso il controllo della POLONIA, quindi la CIA è il governo della POLONIA e della NATO, loro sono diventati, una incombente minaccia di morte per noi!!


Theology of Persecution for innocent christinas martyrs ] chi fa del male a persone innocenti, lui dichiara al mondo di servire e di adorare il demonio in ogni modo.

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. For almost 60 years Open Doors has worked in the world's most oppressive and restrictive countries, strengthening Christians to stand strong in the face of persecution and equipping them to shine Christ's light in these places. These believers stand strong, despite the many obstacles that they face. What are some of the things that we can we learn from their faith? There is something about hardship that allows us to know God deeply. When times get really tough, we discover more about who God is and how He works. Christians who have endured persecution for their faith, know this well. There are no easy answers for why God allows his followers to face suffering. However, the lives of persecuted Christians reveal that even when things look out of control believers can rest secure, knowing that God is still in control. He is able to give courage, peace and even joy to stand strong through the storm. It is through these storms that believers discover God's love in new and powerful ways. Standing Strong Through The Storm is the curriculum that Open Doors uses to help Christians stand strong in the face of persecution. There are six theological and biblical lessons from this curriculum: 1. Sometimes you need to build yourself a cell

Be still, and know that I am God—Psalms 46:10. One Chinese church leader, who spent 23 years in prison, once said this to Christians who did not face persecution: I was pushed into a cell, but you have to push yourself into one. You have no time to know God. You need to build yourself a cell, so you can do for yourself what persecution did for me—simplify your life and know God." It is vital that we spend time with God, to grow in Him, so we are prepared to stand strong in the face of persecution. 2. God keeps secrets. "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts—Isaiah 55:8-9. There have been countless stories of persecuted Christians who have died without seeing the fruits of their labor. However, God know all that has been and all that is to come. Our labor is not in vein, it is in His hands.
3. Weakness is a direct path to power. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong—2 Corinthians 12:10. An Egyptian Christian reflected on the way he was treated when he converted to Christ:. "In great suffering you discover a different Jesus than you do in normal life… Pain and suffering bring up to the surface all the weak points of your personality. In my weakest state, I had an incredible realization that Jesus loved me even right then." True empowerment does not come from human means, but through Christ alone. It often takes being at our weakest point to realize this. 4. Overcoming is greater than deliverance. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. —Romans 12:21. Persecuted Christians, no matter what country they are from, do not ask us to pray that persecution would end, but rather ask us to pray that they stand strong through the persecution. They do not wish to be delivered from the persecution, but rather ask us to pray that they would be able to overcome the trials that they are facing in a way that is honoring to God.
5. Extreme hurt requires extreme forgiveness. And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." And they cast lots to divide his garments—Luke 23:34. A Christian widow from Iran said: "I only had hatred in my heart for my enemies who had murdered my husband. But one day a miracle happened. God taught me how I could love my enemies… I had been praying for this, even though on the deepest level I didn't want it to happen. Gradually, through a process of ups and downs, God answered this prayer." The only way we can get through extreme hurt is by forgiving people as Christ did. 6. Prayer is the ultimate fellowship. Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering—Hebrews 13:3. Many persecuted Christians often feel isolated and alone, since they are unable to fellowship with other believers. However, prayers from Christians half a world away have brought the same amount of encouragement that fellowship would have for these persecuted Christians. Prayer is vital—not only as a direct line to God, but as a way to encourage our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. 1 Corinthians 12:26 tells us that we are one body—when one member suffers, we all suffer. When one member is lifted up, we all rejoice. The persecuted church and the church in the free world are not two separate entities, but rather are one body. The persecuted church needs the free church to support them and most importantly to lift them up in prayer. The church in the free world learns lessons from the persecuted who have stood strong in the face of persecution. Christ is the head of the body and uses both churches in unique and powerful ways.

Christian woman dies in Eritrean jail, as prisoner of conscience
Nov 01 2013
Shipping containers, such as these photographed in South Sudan, are used as makeshift prison cells in neighbouring Eritrea. Wehazit Berhane Debesai died during the week of Oct. 14 in an Eritrea prison, though it was not reported if she was being held in a shipping containter.
An Eritrean Christian woman has become the latest known prisoner of conscience to have died in Eritrea.
The death of Wehazit Berhane Debesai, who was in her thirties, comes amidst renewed condemnation of Eritrea's human rights abuses by the United Nations and NGOs.
 Debesai died during the week of Oct. 14 of pneumonia, following a year of imprisonment in harsh conditions, where she was denied access to medical treatment because she refused to denounce her Christian beliefs.
Debesai's death also coincided with the arrest of around 70 Christians at a prayer gathering in Asmara, the capital.
These arrests bring to nearly 300 the number of Christians known to have been taken into custody this year in what local Christians have called the most serious campaign against the Eritrean Church yet.
This follows the deaths earlier this month of around 380 mostly Eritrean and Somali migrants as they attempted to flee to Europe in ill-equipped vessels, crossing the Mediterranean from Libya.
The United Nations' special rapporteur on human rights in Eritrea, Sheila Keetharuth, recently told the General Assembly that human rights abuses in Eritrea are causing "countless Eritreans to desert from their positions and flee the country". Eritreans are second only to Syrians in terms of the number of those who have fled to Italy by sea up to 30 September this year (UN figures). "It demonstrates the desperation of those who decide to flee, despite the extreme dangers along escape routes and an unknown future," said Keetharuth.
 UN figures claim that between 2,000 and 3,000 people are fleeing Eritrea every month despite a "shoot-to-kill policy" for those who attempt to leave. More than 300,000 Eritreans are believed to have fled the country in the past decade.
 Keetharuth said the most serious violations include a lack of freedom of expression, assembly, religious belief and movement; extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances, extended incommunicado detention, torture and indefinite national service.
 Eritrea's ambassador to the UN, Arya Desta, rejected these claims, saying they were being used as a "tool of political pressure" for making "unfair and unjust" sanctions. He also denied the implementation of a shoot-to-kill policy.
 Debesai had been taking part in national service when she was arrested last year for her involvement in Christian activities outside of the government-sanctioned Orthodox, Catholic and Evangelical Lutheran church groups.
 Debesai, who was engaged to be married, was then kept incommunicado in Adi Quala, near the Ethiopian border.
 Her fiancé Yohannes was arrested on the same day and also held in Adi Quala.
 A representative of Open Doors, a charity that works with Christians under pressure for their faith, said that many Christian men and women are being held in underground dungeons, metal shipping containers and military detention centres.
 "They face exposure, hard labour and insufficient food, water and hygiene. They are regularly denied medical treatment for malaria and pneumonia contracted while in prison or diseases like diabetes, hypertension or cancer that they may have arrived with," said the representative.
A number of rights organisations, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, have condemned Eritrea's human rights record. Amnesty International claims that Eritrea's prisons are filled with "thousands of political prisoners, locked up without ever being charged with a crime, many of whom are never heard from again".
At least 10,000 political prisoners have been imprisoned since 1993, claims the organisation, and many die in detention as a result of "torture, appalling conditions or suicide".
Speaking to the BBC World Service in the aftermath of the first Eritrean deaths off the island of Lampedusa, Gaiam Ciprian of London's South Bank University said that every Eritrean between 16 and 40 has to do national service, and since there is no effective de-mobilisation, so no-one really leaves it.
He also said the Eritrean economy has virtually collapsed.

Download. Christian woman raped and murdered in Madhya Pradesh
Sep 10 2013. The bed where the woman's body was found. Courtesy: World Watch Monitor. Four men were today convicted of the fatal gang rape of a medical student in Delhi - a story that has grabbed the world's attention. Meanwhile, a little further south, the case of a Christian woman who suffered the same fate has gone relatively unnoticed.. The 30-year-old was raped and killed on August 29 in Bakoudi village in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.
The woman, whose name has not been released to protect her family's security and privacy, was found the next morning by her mother-in-law.
Witnesses told World Watch Monitor she had suffered multiple stab wounds to her torso and had been strangled with her own sari.
Two suspects, both Hindus, have been arrested. Mahesh Dohre, 23, who worked with the victim's husband, and Durgesh Potfode, 25, are residents of Bakoudi. They have both been released. It is unclear whether they will face further official charges. The local Christian community has been shocked by the event and expressed concerns about its vulnerability to local authorities. It is uncertain whether the attack took place because of the woman's faith, but Christian women often report threats in the area. Christians comprise a tiny fraction of the population of Madhya Pradesh (the 2001 census put the figure at around 170,000 people, or 0.3%) and just 2.3% of the total population of India (2011 census).
In the vast and diverse country, Christians often live freely. However, India ranks among the 50 countries where life as a Christian is most difficult, according to Open Doors International, a global ministry that serves Christians who are pressured because of their faith. The country is No. 31 on Open Doors' 2013 World Watch List, largely because of a streak of Hindu nationalism, or Hindutva, that envisions India as a purely Hindu state. Source:World Watch Monitor.

Conflicting reports are emerging about the whereabouts and welfare of an Italian Jesuit priest who went missing almost one month ago.
Reuters reported on July 29 that Fr. Paolo Dall'Oglio had been abducted by Islamists with links to al-Qaeda in the northern Syrian city of ar-Raqqah, but the Vatican would not confirm the news.
Now, as various reports claim the priest has been killed, the Vatican remains tight-lipped.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported last week that the priest had been killed, but retracted its statement on Monday, Aug. 19.
The rights organisation said sources close to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS, which claimed it has kidnaped Dall'Oglio, said he was still alive. ISIS has yet to make a statement.
"No side refuting the report that Father Paolo was killed has shown any evidence to prove that he is alive, despite their empty assurances," said a statement released by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The group called for "solid evidence" to be given, such as a recent video proving that he is alive, and a statement from a "clear and honest" member of the Syrian opposition.
"Any harm inflicted on Father Paolo is harm inflicted on the Syrian revolution and on the Syrian peoples' freedoms and dignity," SOHR said.

A Jesuit spokesperson earlier this month expressed "deep worry" about the fate of Dall'Oglio.
Italian Foreign Minister Emma Bonino said: "We are still groping in the dark".
Dall'Oglio worked in Syria for more than 30 years, and described his work as "promoting Islamic-Christian harmony-building". He was expelled last year after speaking out against President Bashar al-Assad and helping victims of the civil war. Since then, he has been working predominantly in Europe. On July 22, he posted an online petition asking Pope Francis to advocate on behalf of suffering Syrians.
However, his stance has been controversial for many Syrian Christian leaders. Nadim Nassar, the only Syrian Anglican priest, told World Watch Monitor: "Any attempt to politicise the voice of Christians in Syria is wrong, and devastating for them, because it weakens them".
Meanwhile, there is nothing new to report about the two Syrian bishops – Yohanna Ibrahim and Boulos Yaziji – kidnapped four months ago.
Metropolitan Timotheus Matta Fadil Alkhouri, patriarchal Assistant for the Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch, urged members of the press and politicians to refrain from speculation.
"Every week some politician or some journalist pulls out some story on the two Metropolitan Bishops of Aleppo kidnapped," he told Fides. "But so far they have always been unverifiable deductions. The reality is that… we do not know who kidnapped them."

Throughout its history, ancient and modern, Syria has played host to ethnic and religious minorities living together very much in harmony.
Syria, in the original sense of what is now known as "Greater Syria", encompassed much of the Levant – today's states of Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and Jordan, plus a portion of Turkey. This is the cradle of the three major monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam; two were born in Syria, and Islam found its way there very early in its existence.
Its geopolitical position brought Syria to the attention of many different superpowers and, sadly, it has often been a battleground for these foreign powers. Throughout millennia of occupation and recent decades of independence, the minorities in Syria have always stayed true to their homeland: they played a major role in the liberation from the Ottomans after more than 500 years of oppression, and from the French Mandate in the twentieth century, leading to independence in 1946.
Christians, Druze, Alawites, Kurds and other, smaller minorities worked hand in hand with the majority Sunnis to secure the liberation of Syria from all foreign occupation.
In 1970 the political situation in Syria took a dramatic turn when a faction of military leaders who were Alawites – an Islamic sect – took power. After many centuries in which the Syrians had been ruled by outsiders, they now found themselves ruled by one of their own minorities.
For years Syrians hoped that the Assads, the ruling family, would bring stability and freedom after the troubled 1950s and 60s, during which a series of coups d'états pushed the country into uncertainty and military conflict. In 1973, just three years after he seized power, Hafez al-Assad joined with Egyptian President Anwar al-Sadat in a new major war against Israel. The Soviet Union supplied Egypt and Syria with arms, while the United States of America backed Israel. This disastrous war damaged relations throughout the Middle East and achieved little for Syria.
Before the region could recover, civil war engulfed Syria's southern neighbour, Lebanon. The superpowers and regional powers, including Syria, used their allies in Lebanon to wage their own proxy wars in the midst of the 17-year-long Lebanese Civil War. This act by the ruling minority dragged Syria into the heart of the bloodshed through indirect and direct military intervention.
At this time, President Hafez al-Assad focused most of his energy on foreign politics, especially the on-going conflict with Israel, and left Syria to be run mainly by members of his family and the Intelligence Services.
Trade with the rest of the world was tightly controlled by the Assad regime, and many benefitted from the Lebanese Civil War through establishing smuggling rings and black markets across the Syrian-Lebanese border – with the support of many of those in power; this was the beginning of the awful corruption that has infected Syria.
In an extremely closed economy, smuggling became the norm – even fruit, vegetables and daily products like butter, tea, sugar, bananas and tissues had to be smuggled into Syria from Lebanon and Jordan.
The corruption deepened as time went on, creating a new upper class of people from all religions who took advantage of the situation and got closer to the Alawite regime in order to further their business.
This squeezed the traditional middle class and deprived them of much of their income, fomenting anger and hostility towards the regime and towards Alawites in general.
"What is happening in Syria today is not merely the result of a minority ruling a majority. Some of those who are supported by external powers would like the conflict to be seen in this way, but the changes the people seek have nothing to do with Assad coming from a minority." --Revd. Nadim Nassar
The regime maintained its hold on power through the usual measures employed by a dictatorship: eliminating dissent through censoring the media, silencing opponents and critics, preventing free speech and denying political expression.
That created an atmosphere of fear and resentment of the Alawites and the Assad family in particular.
In the early eighties the Assad regime killed tens of thousands in the western city of Hama to silence the uprising of a Sunni group, the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood had been terrorising parts of Syria through assassination and bombing.
This brutal act did not end the Syrian people's resentment against the regime but merely drove it deeper underground where it would smoulder under the fist of the regime.
When Hafez al-Assad died in 2000, his second son, Bashar, an ophthalmologist living in London, inherited the Presidency.
The people hoped that a young President, who studied in the West and who had married an intelligent and charming Syrian-British woman, could change the situation which his father had created. Many people were almost euphorically optimistic – they saw Bashar as an open-minded, well-travelled reformer.
Indeed, Bashar al-Assad began to restore proper international trade and he started to reform the country, but everything quickly slipped back to the old corrupt ways. Most of the promises of change that Bashar made in his inauguration speech evaporated.
For most Syrians, religion was not a source of tension and conflict. I have always had dear Muslim, Alawite and Druze friends, and differences in belief were never an issue.
Sadly this has now changed in my homeland. Sectarianism was not a part of a Syrian lifestyle until recently. It has been imported by foreign religious fanatics.
The conflict in Syria began as a protest against the corruption that blighted every aspect of people's lives and the lack of freedom; the people demanded radical reforms in how Syria was governed.
The lack of response to these demands was followed by severe and sustained military action against those who protested, and this violence drove some in the opposition to seek help from foreign governments in the region. Many of these governments are keen to shatter the age-old alliance between Syria and Iran, and the fall of the Assad regime would help them greatly; for this reason, they offered military and financial aid to the opposition but only on the condition that the "new Syria" would cut links with Iran and with Hezbollah in South Lebanon.
Some religious leaders outside Syria then called for a Sunni uprising against the minorities – with the Alawites being at the top of the list. Sadly, Christians are also on that list because they are wrongly seen as having been protected by the Alawites.
As the conflict continued, this new sectarianism spread; it became popular because it legitimised violence against others – even those who were not part of the regime. The regime's acts of war against its own people across Syria only encouraged further resentment against the regime and the Alawites.
What is happening in Syria today is not merely the result of a minority ruling a majority. Some of those who are supported by external powers would like the conflict to be seen in this way, but the changes the people seek have nothing to do with Assad coming from a minority.
The change the Syrians desire with all their hearts is the change from oppression to freedom, from corruption to the rule of law, from dictatorship to democracy. This change would be to the great benefit of all Syrians. Source: World Watch Monitor. Churches across Egypt attacked, Aug 14 2013
