Following Up

Posted by cindyhfrench on 08/16/2014

WOW! I sure got a lot of action with that last post! I know that Islam, Muslims, ISLA, are all hot topics today. Imagine my surprise when former FL Rep Allen West  came out today with his report of why Obama is an Islamist! God knew what I was going to write just as He Knew what Rep. West was going to write. Why are these things important? Because my God is also all-loving, most compassionate and full of mercy. He has prompted His people to write now as in times past to alert people about things that are happening (as well as going to happen). I do not claim to be a prophet–not at all. However, I do listen to what my Father says when He wants me to post something. I have said that often enough in most anything I have posted.  Last night after that post with the speech, I went right to bed.  As I lay there waiting for sleep to come,  I felt in my spirit, my Lord telling me that I needed to follow up with His Good News. 

Please stay with me as I go through this with you. It may be really important information for you–if not today, then someday.

Most of you will have already noticed that I talk about a personal God, (my and Father probably gave it away!) One thing you may not know is that my God, the God of the Universe, the Creator, the Father of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Peter, Paul , John and so many others, is the only God of any kind to have a relationship with His followers? No other religion’s god does that. Another thing, my God has created a Holy Book, well, it’s actually 66 books, written by 40 different authors, most of whom didn’t know each other personally. They came from a variety of backgrounds: shepherds, fishermen, doctors, kings, prophets and others. It was written in 3 different languages (Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic) on 3 different continents, over a period of 1500 years. It has a common storyline throughout each book, of God and His love and forgiveness and mercy. There are no historical errors or contradictions. Anyone who has studied any kind of laws of averages, knows that unless God wrote those Books, through the authors, there would be no way that ordinary man could have accomplished that!

For me to continue now, using Holy Scriptures, you see why it was important that you understand where they came from. From the beginning, God has always had plan to rescue man. He has always known that none of us could ever be perfect enough to come into His heaven. That is why He sent His Son, prophesied from Genesis and continually through the Old Testament, even to His flogging and method of death, although it had not even been invented yet! Here is the first scripture, Genesis 3: 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he (the Messiah) will crush your head, and you will strike his heel. (crucifixion) Then,  I am going to skip over to Isaiah 53. Bear with me, there is a lot of important scripture here. Starting in verse 1 through 9: Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised and we esteemed him not. Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of my people he was stricken. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was their any deceit in his mouth.

If you have never read that passage before, that is Isaiah’s description of the Messiah’s trials, beatings and crucifixion. It even talks about the fact that Jesus never defended himself…hundreds of years before it happened. And yes, our Lord was assigned a grave with the wicked, but a rich man, a believer, gave him his tomb. I hope that this will make you want to read for yourself the accounts of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Savior of the world’s crucifixion. You can read about it in Matthew 26: 47- 27:60, Mark 14: 43-15:47, Luke 22:47-23:54 and John 18:1-19:42.

Thank our God and Father the story doesn’t end there! If you keep reading in each of those books, to the end of the chapters, you will read of the glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ, who conquered death and rose to sit at the right hand of the Father.

So for those of you who have stuck with me so far, thank you, but the reward will be yours. Let me leave you with 3 more scriptures… some of my favorites. 

John 1:12  Yet to all who received him (Jesus), to those he gave the right to become the children of God.

John 14:6  Jesus answered and said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. 

Revelation 3:20  Here I am! (the Holy Spirit of God) I stand at the door (of your heart) and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and abide (stay forever) with him/her and he/her with me.

Very simply to become a child of the most high God, you have to accept His Son. There is no other way, no other religion. The way you do it, is ask Him to forgive you for going your own way-which is never His way! because we just aren’t perfect people! Then you simply ask Him to come into your heart and He will! He always keeps His promises! It sounds too simple doesn’t it? But Jesus said it was so simple a child could understand and do it and many do. I wasn’t one of those. I had to go my own way for many years, but I am so glad that I made the decision to ask Him into my heart on June 20, 1971. I have been anything but a perfect woman since,  but God has never let me go and keeps me closer than ever now. It has been a growing process of getting to know Him, getting to know His Word. If I studied all day, everyday of every year, I still would not be able to know and understand all that is there, but that’s certainly the challenge of it! Learning and understanding.

I hope that you have listened as God’s Spirit has spoken tonight.

In His Love,

Cindy

WE MUST NOT FAIL

Posted by cindyhfrench on 08/15/2014

 

Be sure to notice the check with SNOPES at the very end of this very long note.

This speech was given in 2009, has been circulated numerous times on the internet, but the information is still valid, and needs to be kept in circulation until every American understands the message fully

For those who know me and have spoken to me or read earlier posts, you know of my concerns. I have been studying extensively what the Holy Word of God says about all this. I really believe that we are on the edge of eternity-does that mean days, years, decades? I am not a prophet. I can only point you to the scriptures. Read them for yourselves. God always keeps His promises and prophecies.

 Geert Wilders was a Member of the Dutch Parliament.

 In a generation or two, the   US   will ask itself: “Who lost   Europe   ?” Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom the   Netherlands   , at the Four Seasons in   New York   , introducing an   Alliance   of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in   Jerusalem   .

 

Dear friends,

 Thank you very much for inviting me.

   I come to   America   with a mission.  All is not well in the old world.  There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic.  We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe.  This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of   Europe   itself, it is a threat to   America   and the sheer survival of the West.  The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.

 First, I will describe the situation on the ground in   Europe   …  Then, I will say a few things about Islam.  To close I will tell you about a meeting in   Jerusalem   ..

 The Europe you know is changing. You have probably seen the landmarks.  But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world.  It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.

 All throughout   Europe   a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen.  And if they are, they might regret it.  This goes for the police as well.  It’s the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners.  The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across   Europe   .. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of   Europe   , street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.

 There are now thousands of mosques throughout   Europe   .  With larger congregations than there are in churches.  And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region.  Clearly, the signal is: we rule.

 Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take   Amsterdam   , Marseille and   Malmo   in   Sweden   ..  In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim.  Paris   is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.

 In some elementary schools in   Amsterdam   the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.

 Many state schools in   Belgium   and   Denmark   only serve halal food to all pupils.  In once-tolerant   Amsterdam   gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims.  Non-Muslim women routinely hear ‘whore, whore’.  Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.

 In  France  school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of   Darwin   .  The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.

 In   England   sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in   France   are no-go areas for women without head scarves.  Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in   Brussels   , because he was drinking during the Ramadan.

 Jews are fleeing   France   in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II.  French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya   ,   Israel   ..  I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.

 San Diego   University   recently calculated that a staggering  25 percent of the population in   Europe   will be Muslim just 12 years from now.  Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.

 Now these are just numbers.  And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate.  But there are few signs of that.  The   Pew Research   Center   reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to   France   .  One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call ‘respect’.  And this is how we give them respect.  We have Muslim official state holidays.

 The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in the   Netherlands   if there is a Muslim majority.  We have cabinet members with passports from   Morocco   and Turkey   .

 Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example, against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots.    Paris   has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus.  I call the perpetrators ‘settlers’,  because that is what they are.  They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam.  Therefore, they are settlers.

 Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries.  Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.

 The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet.  His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized.  Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem.  But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages – at the same time.  Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed.  Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza.  If it is good for Islam, it is good.  If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.

 Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion.  Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins.  But in its essence Islam is a political ideology.  It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person.  Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life.  Islam means ‘submission’.  Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia.  If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

 Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde force in the world’, and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.  The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees   Israel   as the aggressor.  I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times.  I support Israel , first, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz , second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.

 This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam’s territorial advance.    Israel   is facing the front lines of Jihad, like   Kashmir , Kosovo, the   Philippines   ,   Southern Thailand ,   Darfur   in   Sudan   ,   Lebanon   , and Aceh in   Indonesia   ..    Israel   is simply in the way, the same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

 The war against   Israel   is not a war against   Israel   .  It is a war against the West.  It is Jihad.    Israel   is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us.  If there would have been no   Israel   , Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest.  Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in   Europe   and   America   can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.

 Many in   Europe   argue in favor of abandoning   Israel   in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities.  But if   Israel   were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West ..  It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values.  On the contrary, the end of   Israel   would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam.  They would, and rightly so, see the demise of   Israel   as proof that the West is weak, and doomed.  The end of   Israel   would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning.  It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination.  If they can get   Israel   , they can get everything.  So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a ‘right-wing extremists’ or ‘racists’.  In my country, the   Netherlands   , 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II.  And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat.  Yet there is a greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of   America   as the last man standing.  The lights may go out in   Europe   faster than you can imagine.  An Islamic Europe means a   Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for   America   – as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs.  With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to   America   alone to preserve the heritage of   Rome   ,   Athens   and   Jerusalem   …..

 Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts.  My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives.  All throughout   Europe   , American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish.  My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians.  We can only hand over this hard won liberty to   Europe   ‘s children in the same state in which it was offered to us.  We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams.  Future generations would never forgive us.  We cannot squander our liberties.  We simply do not have the right to do so.

 We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know.

 Please take the time to read and understand what is written here, Please send it to every free person that you know, it is so very important.
