Imams Rage as Christ Wins Muslim Converts
The Christian Diarist ^ | July 20, 2014 | JP

Posted on 07/20/2014 7:51:27 AM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST

Naeem Fazal was born and raised in the deserts of Kuwait. He is the son of Pakistani parents who grounded him and his siblings in Islam.

Naeem moved to the United States after the first Gulf War, following his older brother Mahmoud, who had previously enrolled in Spartanburg Methodist College in South Carolina.

While attending the college, Mahmoud found the Lord. And on a visit to Kuwait to see his family he announced he had converted to Christianity.

Naeem was furious with his brother, cursing him for renouncing the Islamic faith they grew up with. He even went so far as threatening to kill his brother, in accordance with the Koranic punishment for infidels like Ahmed who turn away from the “religion of peace.”

There was tension between the two brothers for a period of time. Nevertheless, Naeem decided he would visit his older brother in the U.S. But, though Mahmoud tried to share the Gospel with his younger brother, Naeem remained unreceptive. Then an amazing thing happened, Pastor Naeem recounted, in a recent appearance at a Southern California church: He had a supernatural experience with the Lord that changed his life, much as Saul of Tarsus had a life-changing encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus.

As he lay in bed one night, a demonic presence entered his room. It told him, “I’m going to kill you.” Naheem got up and raced down the hall to his brother’s bedroom to ask him what to do.

Mahmoud told his scared-to-death younger brother that he knew but only one name he might call upon that had authority over demons and angels alike, and that was Jesus.

So Naeem returned to his room, sat on his bed, eyes wide open. And he espied another presence, which had chased away the malevolent presence stalking the young man.

“I am Jesus,” said the new, benevolent presence. “Your life is not your own.” And, indeed, the Lord anointed Pastor Naeem that night to take the Gospel to the Muslim community.

To let them know that the God who created them desires that none would perish, but that all would have everlasting life. And that there is no other name under heaven given among men by which they might be saved besides Jesus.

Pastor Naeem, who in 2006 planted Mosiac Church in North Carolina, is one of the growing ranks of ex-Muslims not only here in the United States, but throughout the world, who have been called into the service of Christ.

They have lifted up their eyes and looked at the fields, and found them already white for the harvest.

And it is because men like Pastor Naeem, author of the recently published book “Ex-Muslim,” are doing the work the Lord has set before them that Islam is losing millions of adherents to Christianity.

Indeed, that mass exodus has been corroborated by Ahmad Al Qataani, president of The Companions Lighthouse for the Science of Islamic Law, which is based in Libya, and which trains imams and Islamic preachers.

“In every hour,” said the Muslim cleric, in an interview that aired some years back on the Al Jazeera news network, “667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Every year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity.”

And that’s just in Africa.

The growing Christianization of the Dark Continent confirms the words of the Apostle Paul: “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow” and “every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

It's not a coincidence that millions of Muslims are converting to Christianity as opposed to the other way around. Jesus is Lord, indeed.

I would think that some Muslims, particularly the more educated ones living in the west, would be sickened by how their religion has condoned violence and hatred and even justified mass murder as being pleasing to God. It would be natural to turn to Christianity as a true religion of peace and tolerance.

And as for us: We ought to be prepared to show the new converts how to walk in the Spirit that points to Jesus Christ who reveals the Father to us who believe.

I'm prompted this morning to turn away from my naturally confrontive ways (lately especially here on FR) which I have been reminded that I must resist or lose much more effectiveness in my moment-by-moment walk in, of, and by the Holy Spirit.

One needs to be careful when addressing Muslims regarding conversion to believer status.

Those who lack a regenerate human spirit will perceive conversion as simply a change in a comparative religion using soulish perspectives.

Conversion to Christianity is purely the work of God, namely faith. His work is used by Himself to also convert the unbeliever into a believer. The believer himself isn’t the author of conversion, nor able to convert themselves to become a believer. Conversion in the spirit is a work of God.

Of course the imams are going to rage.

If ever there was proof of who is behind Islam, that sort of reaction is it.

Even better news would be for these converted Muslims to speak up against the atrocities daily perpetrated by their former religionists — something that “peaceful” muzzies should really be doing but don’t.

Two Christian books; Firefall and another entitled Revival discuss some of the huge changes in China and in the third world toward Christianity. There is a reason the devil rages, why Boko Haram and Al Shabab have turned to violence in killing Christians. They see on the ground what our media is hiding from us here in Europe and the U.S. The world is being evangelized and we are sitting on the sidelines.

When a religion squashes self identity, and any
infraction becomes a judgment of
dismembership; when that same religion also
demands the deaths of those outside that
religion; and conquest by sword is advocated, that
religion must be shucked off by any thinking
human being, and that same human being
would do well to run to the arms of their
Creator.

Mohammedanism is slavery of the mind and soul,
no less different than Statism or Communism,
where the very thoughts of the individual
become sins against authority.

God can never be stopped, yes.

But Mankind has free will.

So, a man MAY resist God’s free gift of salvation.

Read Revelation and see what some will do even instead of turning to God even though Hell itself is brought to earth.

**“In every hour,” said the Muslim cleric, in an interview that aired some years back on the Al Jazeera news network, “667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Every year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity.”
And that’s just in Africa.**

------------------------------

Amazing story.

==============================

I don't believe it. THOSE statistics just AREN'T available and we all know it. They are MADE UP numbers to scare or validate. NO WAY TO KNOW THOSE STATS.

Changing faiths, the "faith of our fathers," just ISN'T done often or blatantly and we all know that too.

The middle east newspapers also LIE as much as do ALL THE OTHER RAGS in the world.
Also, NO Muslim cleric would ever say that because he wouldn't want it known. He probably couldn't read anyway. Their radio and T.V. news is mostly from abroad. Everyone lies about faith. If the imam said it, he was stoned or nuts.

Mecca, the HOME of Islam's holiest site, is run by the Saudis. They HAVE to be super-sensitive about Islam BECAUSE they have Mecca (and Medina).

BOTTOM LINE: We and they HAVE to stay nicey-nice because the Saudis BOUGHT BACK all the petroleum and natural gas in 1982 or so. (Probably with pocket change). We were there when it happened.
In the late 1920's early 1930's the King had SOLD all those mineral rights to the "BIG FOUR" oil companies. Later on a consortium came to be that was called the SEVEN SISTERS and it had the major interests in the petroleum/natural gas fields (on and off shore).

From the Internet: The "Seven Sisters " was a term coined in the 1950s by businessman Enrico Mattei, then-head of the Italian state oil company Eni, to describe the seven oil companies which formed the "Consortium for Iran" cartel and dominated the global petroleum industry from the mid-1940s to the 1970s.
The group comprised Anglo-Persian Oil Company (now BP); Gulf Oil, Standard Oil of California (SoCal), Texaco (now Chevron); Royal Dutch Shell; Standard Oil of New Jersey (Esso) and Standard Oil Company of New York (Socony) (now ExxonMobil).

Since we were there in 1982 when the King BOUGHT BACK all the petroleum/natural gas rights we KNOW it happened so NOW the Saudi king is 100% in charge of the destiny of his country.

Side note: Some of those gulf oil-rich countries are getting low on petroleum. NO ONE had/has as much as does the KSA.

The news about Oman is that it is OUT of the black gold.
Saudi Arabia still has another 200 years of crude, very sweet stuff too, PLUS all the natural gas that always comes out WITH the petroleum.

-------------------------------------

So, that being said, no imam over there is going to be STUPID enough to say falsehoods like that. Their news sources are absurd. The rags over there are the worst because those folks over there respect the written word, so if LIES are WRITTEN, they are more apt to be believed.
MOST of the anti-Christian rhetoric comes from Pakistan.
"Pak" means "pure" and "stan" means "land of" and the Pakis REALLY think that they are special. They ARE more educated than most because when the British were there they had most schools/universities built in Pakistan rather than India, so the Pakis are generally more literate than the rest of the Muslims. SO, they spew their anti-Christian rhetoric with IMPUNITY all over the middle and near east. It used to make me sick!

One of my oldest friends is a Pakistani Christian. Talk about an anomaly. He and his family finally did emigrate, yep, to the good ole USA.

My opinion: People don't change faiths often or easily because their families from eons back were always of one faith.
Those converts would have to give up forever ALL THEIR FAMILY, friends, the friends of their families, their jobs, acquaintances...everything.

And even then, SOME brother might just "honor kill" the convert. No one likes turncoats and changing from one faith to another is seen as a huge betrayal to all their world.

The statistics from Africa are even MORE unbelievable because their world is even MORE chaotic than the middle east. We have a priest from Nigeria and he gets the sad news of that country's civil war fighting from HIS family.
Sorry.

God wins. Not Mankind as a whole. Some men will accept the gift of God, but some will not.

God does not take pleasure in the death of the wicked. He is righteous.

God could if he wanted to, MAKE every man believe. But that is not the desire (or character) of God.

At least one form of "Christian" religion has exhibited this form of domination in the past, and in whose roots it is still firmly present today --

The bad part about humans acting as ostriches,
is that the extremity left to the wind, is the most
precious for a human to lose.

Those that dont get the point, need one less martini
a day. Those that duck the point, might be the ones
quacking the loudest, when it befalls them.
