Sunday saw me at the Palm Sunday Mass, celebrating Christ's entry into Jerusalem. Here the Mighty Son of the Almighty God had palm leaves strewn before him. The week's end will see him conquor Death itself and leave an everlasting Legacy for us.
And just to keep you up to date so you can all 'get with the programme' Mishka Gora laid it out for us.
The Christian message from my Supplier remains as it has for 2000 years. Love My Father in Heaven and Love thy neighbour. Peace to Men of Goodwill.
But not everyone has that Good Will.
There are those that refuse point blank to do either and reject peace.
And there are those who will value their neighbour just as highly as themselves.
We saw examples of each in the past few days. Two faces stand out.
The Muslim world is not 'of this world' nor simply of the flesh despite its focus on carnality, be that raping young girls in an increasing number of British cities while the police stand guard to stop anyone criticising, or suiciding to get at waiting virgins in their parody of heaven under the sardonic grin of Allah.
No, Islam is of the Devil.
Islam is Satan's response to the Resurrection which we will celebrate in Love and Joy next Sunday.
Satan will writhe in anger and agony.
Satan's Islamic army mocks God and seeks to destroy anything to do with Christianity. And Christianity's origin, Judaism.
If Revelation's date for Armageddon is as yet unknown, it would seem that Turkey is keen to bring it on along with the end of the world.
One might remind them that the outcome is already known.
They see themselves as mighty, but as is so often the case, enough to make an aphorism, the mighty will be fallen.
Turkish newspaper with close ties to (President) Erdogan (of Turkey) calls for joint Islamic army to fight IsraelThe article calls for establishing joint bases for the army's ground, air and naval forces that will arrive from all over the Muslim world to besiege Israel, while noting that Pakistan, as the only nuclear country, has “a special status” among the OIC countries.
On Dec. 12, 2017, ahead of the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Istanbul, the Turkish daily Yeni Şafak, which is close to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his ruling AKP party, published an article titled “A Call for Urgent Action,” which also appeared on the paper’s website under the title “What If an Army of Islam Was Formed Against Israel?”The article called on the 57 member states of the OIC to form a joint “Army of Islam” to besiege and attack the state of Israel. It notes that such a joint army will greatly exceed the Israeli army in manpower, equipment and budget, and presents statistics to prove this.It also advocates establishing joint bases for the army’s ground, air and naval forces that will arrive from all over the Muslim world to besiege Israel, while noting that Pakistan, as the only nuclear country, has “a special status” among the OIC countries. An interactive map provides information on military forces stationed in various locations and the role they can play in the potential joint Muslim attack on Israel.
I am getting a tad old for fighting, but if Turkey does lead Islamic forces onto the fields of Armageddon, they will be met by many on God's side and the Israeli's. I shall be in the Crypt praying for souls. But... I might still harbour a wish to die with a sword in my hand.If the OIC member states unite and form a joint military force, it will be the largest army in the world. These countries’ total population is 1,674,526,931. The number of soldiers in active service in these countries is at least 5,206,100. Their [overall] military defense budget, of $174,728,420,000 is also worthy of emphasis.As for Israel, it is significantly inferior. The population of this country, which attempted to occupy Jerusalem while surrounded by Muslim states, is 8,049,314. Note that the population of Istanbul alone exceeds 14 million. The number of soldiers in active service in the [Israeli] occupation forces is 160,000, and [Israel’s] defense budget is approximately $15, 600,000,000.
But there was another face in the news. This week also saw a French chap offer his life for that of a hostage. A hostage of an Islamic madman, of course.
Officer who traded places with hostage, dies moments after marryingCOLONEL Arnaud Beltrame, 44, gave himself up to the gun-wielding extremist when the shop was stormed by in Trebes, near Toulouse.
The brave officer secretly left his phone on so officers outside could hear what was happening inside — meaning they knew to storm the supermarket straight away when they heard gunshots.
It has now emerged he wed partner Marielle while on his death bed in a hugely moving ceremony performed in a hospital in Carcassonne, in the south west of the country.His bride was left in floods of tears as they said their prayers in the Catholic ceremony before the hero succumbed to his four bullet wounds.
Greater Love has no man, than he lay down his life for another.
Rest in the arms of Christ, Bro.
Christ wrote the book about 'Laying down His life' for all others.
Including the mad and the bad Muslims seduced by Satan's last ditch effort to thwart the Will of God.
Drink up: drink deep: Pray for us all, now and in the conflict to come.
