VOP Nigerian Foreign Correspondent

(Voice of the Persecuted) The Islamic Ideology of converting the Christian community with violence has come to stay in Northern Nigeria. The capture of Gwoza local wolfgovernment by Islamic Militants on 6th August 2014 was reported all over the media. They mounted their black flag with sword logo in the middle of the town, destroyed several houses, burnt down churches, captured military personnel and brutally massacred the people. Muslim owned media houses quickly went on air and told world cable channels that Muslims were the ones that suffered in the attacks. They didn’t report that Christians were slaughtered like animals on account of their faith, some burned alive after being thrown into fire. And that Christian remains were left unburied decomposing on the ground .

Prominent Christians who suffered in the attack stated that many Christian youths were forcefully recruited to join the insurgents in working for Allah. One eyewitness named those he knew that were massacred in Church of Brethren (EYN) as Markus Kulka (50 years) Ishaku Zhadava (55 Years) and Student Pastor Gambo Zakariya (35 Years) who had his throat slit for refusing to convert to Islam.

Another witness who narrowly escaped the insurgents recalled that there were many Christians who gave up and the insurgents took them away. He told Voice of the Persecuted’s correspondent, “I’m not sure whether they have killed them or not.” “There were also brave Christians who died because they refused to compromise. Adamu Vime (55 years) and Godiya Markus (20 years) were killed in my presence” he said. Sharing his own experience he observed the Boko haram seemed to hate the sign of the cross most. “All the Christians wearing a cross were said to be slaughtered. Any church building that had a cross on it was brought down.”

Since from the time the insurgents took over Gwoza and mounted their flag, hundreds of Christians have been killed and their property were looted. Those who were able to escape went to Michika (a Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Nigeria) as displaced people, some stopped in Madagali, Gulak, Mubi and other villages in the borders of Borno and Adamawa States helpless without shelter, food or water to drink. “I have not eaten for 6 days,” said one of the survivors.

Our correspondent gathered that thousands of Christians who ran to the hills were still trapped there by the Boko haram. “They have been there for a week without food or water”, a witness said. Many who escaped to the hills, but bled to death from bullet wounds. One of the pastors spoke directly with the Boko Haram telling them, “What you’re doing is not a work of Allah, repent or else you will enter hell.” They then killed the pastor. One of the Christians told our correspondent, “I saw it with my eyes. His corpse laid decomposing on the ground until some elderly women went and buried it.”

    “… (what) the Boko Haram seemed to hate the most was the sign of the Cross. “All the Christians wearing a cross were said to be slaughtered. Any church building that had cross on it were brought down.”

    A comment in another article was made about the spirit that inhabited all of the inhabitants of Canaan – who were ‘giants’ (Numbers 13:26-33) may now inhabit those of Hamas / Hezbulloh / IS / Al-Qaeda / Boko Haram / etc …
    [Hamas: We Killed Jewish Teens, and What of It? | Israel Today, Saturday, August 23, 2014]

    There is a comment in another article – that an evil spirit that came upon a convert to Mohammedenism – which seems to clearly be actual ‘demonic possession’
    [UK: Convert To Islam Has Sudden Urge To Wage Jihad On The Streets Of London | MidnightWatcher’s Blogspot, 08/22/2014]

    My understanding is that indeed massive numbers of Satanic spirits have been loosed. There has been an exponential increase in the absolute barbarity, viscousness and evil that has occurred – specifically within
    the last 4-5 weeks – primarily in the Mid-East [which includes North Africa (Somalia / Western Sahara)].
    – What is happening are Satanic Ritual Blood Sacrifices knowingly being made by the following ‘extremely fundamental followers’ of the false moon-god ‘Allah’ and his lying Satanic prophet Mohammed – Hamas / IS /
    Boko Haram / Al-Qaeda / others? – specifically sacrificing CHRISTians and JEWS – and it matters not what the ‘ethnicity’ of those men, women, boys, and girls are!
    Think about how many of the victims are murdered by beheading – in which there is large quantities of blood spilled!
    It must always be remembered that Satan hates “the LORD GOD”, and all mankind – but uses whomever he can ‘snare’ with his “wiles” (Eph 6:11 | 1 Peter 5:8 – KJV)
    – and he is cleverly and with great and deliberate evil desirous of the destruction of all Mohammedens also.

    “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
    Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.”
    (Luke 17:26-29 – KJV)


    The absolute truth and reality of “the words of the LORD” should be very clear:
    “The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.”
    (Ps 12:8 – KJV)

    Me thinks that the whole world is becoming ever more and more rapidly ‘as it was in the days of Noah and of Lot’ – TODAY – RIGHT NOW!

    The time of massive ‘spiritual deception’ that those that have “an heart to perceive”, “ears to hear”, and “eyes to see” that which is written about in “the truth”, “the word of the LORD”, the Holy Bible – both in the Old and New Testaments – BEFORE “the time of Jacob’s trouble”, “the day of the Lord”, the “great tribulation” are here – right now!!!

    CHRISTians – We need to put on – and keep on the “whole armor of God”
    (Eph 6:10-20 | 2 Cor 10:3-5 | James 4:6-10 – KJV) and pray for the protection of “the Lord God Almighty”
    – for all CHRISTians – in the MID-EAST, and wherever else they may live
    – for the JEWISH people and the land of ISRAEL
    – and all of the other people – CHRISTians and lost!!!

    • There has been an exponential increase in the absolute barbarity, viciousness and evil that has occurred – specifically within
      the last 4-5 weeks – primarily in the Mid-East [which includes North Africa (Somalia / Western Sahara)].

      Yes Brother Nick, this is true – abominable crimes beyond comprehension. It can only be describe as evil. We must commit to pray as warriors and stay in the Truth, GOD’s Word. For those wishing to know God and put on the HIS armor—Go to our STUDY THE BIBLE page.

      God bless you, brother
