Did God Send the Coronavirus?

Pfff … amazing video …

Dear Friends,

Many people have wondered if God is the one who’s brought us the coronavirus. This is an important question, because it teaches us about the character of God. Watch what Ray Comfort has to say, and then watch a heart-touching evangelism encounter.

Walk for Jesus – Jerusalem Pilgrimage: Episode 13

Dear Friends,

This episode of my pilgrimage to Jerusalem covers the distance from Les Valettes (CH) to Verrès (IT). For a day by day impression (starting with day 1) of my ‘Walk for Jesus’ you can also follow my ‘Pilgrim’s Corner‘ Instagram account.

Have a look at our new International Hiker Online website and let me know if you are in the area next time I’m out there. God willing I will be back in Italy beginning of next month to continue the route of the Via Francigena.

Perhaps we can meet each other and have some fellowship together. Enjoy the route and the pictures I made of this trip below.

God bless!

50 countries where it’s most dangerous to follow Jesus

WORLD WATCH LIST 2020

What is the World Watch List? The World Watch List is an annual report on the global persecution of Christians, ranking the top 50 countries where Christians are persecuted for their faith. Released at the beginning of each year, the list uses data from Open Doors field workers and external experts to quantify and analyze persecution worldwide.

How are the countries ranked?

Countries are ranked by the severity of persecution of Christians, calculated by analyzing the level of violent persecution plus the pressure experienced in five spheres of life. Church life, Community life, Private life, National life and Family life.

Trends in Global persecution

1. In the most populated countries on earth, Christians live in a surveillance state
2. Violent Islamic extremism pikes in sub-Saharan Africa
3. Militant Islam spreads violence and fear in Southeast and South Asia
4. Christianity is on the verge of disappearing in Iraq and Syria

Open Doors

For more than 60 years, Open Doors has served persecuted Christians. Now in more than 60 countries, Open Doors supports God’s people with what they need—Bibles, emergency relief aid, trauma counseling, advocacy, training and much more. We’re committed to those who suffer for following Jesus, and we believe the persecuted church is part of the DNA of every Christian.

One Church

We’re present—on the ground— and understand the full story, not just sound bites or secondhand reports. We pull back the curtain to inspire and invite others— people like you—to be part of the amazing story God is writing for His Church. No matter where they live, we believe God’s people are one Church, one Family.

Blessings

NOTE 1

This video was banned by YouTube as “hate speech,” and my channel received a Community Guidelines strike. I was banned for seven days for the “hate speech” in this video.” I submitted an appeal, and the appeal was rejected by YouTube. Apparently, discussing the persecution of Christians in various parts of the world is now “hate speech.” If you’d like some clarification on YouTube’s policies, you can send a message to @TeamYouTube on Twitter.” – DavidWoodVideos

NOTE 2 – 2-7-2020

Today YouTube has restored the video mentioned above. David Wood responds as follows:

LIVE Interview with Zakariah Botros and Brother Rachid

Zakariah Botros

Father Zakariah Boutros was born on the 24th October 1934 in the town of Kafr el Dawar in the governorate of Behaira, in close proximity to Alexandria. He was born in a Christian family who were deeply involved in evangelical work and cared for all those who crossed their way. It is in this context that Fayez Boutros (Father Zakariah’s name before ordination) developed an awareness of the importance of evangelism to the Muslims.

In the 1960s Father Zakariah wrote a few booklets targeting Muslims, aiming to show common grounds between Christianity and Islam and explaining issues that obstructed Muslims’ openness to Christianity, such as the Trinity, Crucifixtion and the Incarnation of God in Christ.

During Father Zakariah’s service in Egypt, he became famous for his evangelical work with Muslims, preaching Christ’s love, and engaging in many dialogues with the Muslim religious leaders (sheikhs). The Lord blessed his service and many converted from Islam to Christianity. By 1989 Father Zakariah had baptized over five hundred men and women.

Internet

In May 2000, Father Zakariah started a new service aimed at expanding the outreach to Muslims via the internet-based Paltalk. The Holy Spirit used Paltalk as a channel to reach out to thousands of Muslims from different countries around the world …

Brother Rachid

“I criticize Islam as a doctrine, but I love Muslims and respect them. Criticizing a religion should not be confused with hate towards its adherents.”

Rachid was born in Morocco to a conservative Muslim family and raised in Doukkala. His father was an Imam. He memorized one-sixth of the Quran by age 6. He studied economics and computer science at Hassan II University in Casablanca. In 1990, at the age of 19, he converted from Islam to Christianity after studying the differences between the two faiths with the original intent to defend Islam.

When his parents found out about his conversion, they ejected him from their home and he went to live with a missionary but was eventually forced to flee Morocco. After determining that over 80 million Arabs did not truly understand the Classical Arabic dialect that the Quran was written in, he undertook the translation of the Quran into local Arabic dialects believing that if more Muslims understood the words of the Quran, they would leave the faith.

Television

In 2005, he began hosting his own television program on Al hayat TV comparing the virtues of Christianity over Islam, including 55 taped episodes of Lifting the Veil and 555 live episodes of Daring Questions, ending in 2018, after 12 years which allowed Muslims to call in and ask questions about Christianity, and also featured testimonies from former Muslims who have converted to Christianity.

The channel is controversial in the Islamic world and is banned in several Muslim countries. The channel was founded in Cyprus in 2003 by Al Hayat Ministries, an evangelical organization. In 2006, new evangelical partners joined Al Hayat TV, including Joyce Meyer Ministries.

Have a great day.
