Minnesota Undercover – Part Two

Tim D. McConnaughy Jr.

 

 

 

The gruff sounding cab driver was the first to respond.

“Uh, no… They’re saying the whole area is down. Both cities too…and probably others in the state.”

The gentleman seated in front of me seemed to agree.

“This had to be a major attack if both Minneapolis and St. Paul are out.” he added.

Our cab got into a long line of cars already entering the interstate. It was as if we were part of a funeral procession and the whole state had been invited. Once on the interstate we crept along for about a mile for what seemed like an hour and then I saw it as I looked out my right-side window. Off in the nearby distance, smoke and flames were shooting up from a large building ahead. I turned my head back to glance out the cab’s rear window. I caught a glimpse of the airport we just left. There were flames with black and gray smoke billowing from what appeared to be the airport’s main terminal. I saw police and news choppers darting around the moonless night sky. I quickly turned my head forward again toward the building we were approaching. This time I caught what looked like red and orange flames coming from the front.

Holy mackerel, I thought, is that the Mall of America?

Democrats Compare Christianity to Islam, but is there a bigger meaning?

cross-1448946_1920

A recent poll found that a majority of Democrats believe Christianity is as violent as Islam.   Ludicrous? Crazy? Certainly but there is more to the story.  I would like to take you back over 2000 years ago as we consider for a moment another “poll” and ultimately a verdict reached by a majority of people.

Barabbas or Jesus

[The following is from Mark 15:7-15

And there was one named Barabbas, who was chained with his fellow rebels; they had committed murder in the rebellion.
 Then the multitude, crying aloud, began to ask him to do just as he had always done for them.
But Pilate answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?”For he knew that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy.
 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd, so that he should rather release Barabbas to them.
Pilate answered and said to them again, “What then do you want me to do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?”
 So they cried out again, “Crucify Him!”
Then Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, “Crucify Him!”
So Pilate, wanting to gratify the crowd, released Barabbas to them; and he delivered Jesus, after he had scourged Him, to be crucified. ]

A murderer by the name of Barabbas was chosen by the people instead of a peacemaker.  Jesus Christ the only true Peacemaker was put on trial and found not guilty yet was murdered in the place of a murderer.   When Jesus was standing before Pilate, the crowd began chanting “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!”   Are we any different today?  Has our hearts changed or are we seeking again the murderer instead of the Peacemaker?

Like a Mirror

As God Himself, Jesus Christ willingly died to pay the penalty of us breaking God’s law.   Check this out.   Ever lied?  Stolen something even something small?  Ever lusted after another person? Jesus said lust is the same committing adultery in the heart.  Always put God first in your life?  Ever taken God’s name and used it as a cuss word?  Muhammad and Hitler are not even hated as much to use their names to express disgust.

These questions reflect just a part of the Ten Commandments.  They (the Ten Commandments) are a mirror showing us how we have all broken God’s law.  We deserve Hell.  We cannot keep God’s law and yet God demands perfection and complete holiness to enter Heaven. (In other words a person who could fulfill the whole law perfectly could enter Heaven).

Hope

God provided the perfect sacrifice, the one person who has ever been perfect and be sinless.  Of course only God Himself is the only One who could fulfill this.  Therefore as God in human form, Jesus Christ paid a penalty we could never pay so that all who repent and trust in Him alone can enter Heaven.   Jesus rose again after three days in the grave defeating death (the second death, Hell – see Revelation 21:8).

“The cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”   Revelation 21:8

So whether we think Christianity is like Islam or not, there is still hope.   Our once broken relationship with God can be restored because of what Jesus Christ has done for us!

“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”  Romans 5:8

The biggest dilemma for humankind: We love sin but God hates it

1_Peter3_12

It seems simple enough for a few of us to understand why Obama and the current Democrat party are consistent apologists of Islamic Jihad while they demonstrate outrage and hatred toward Christians and biblical based thinking.   So why do they do it?   Simply because they are on the same side and working for the same one who is behind the carnage of Islamic Jihad, murders, crimes, deceit and all evil in the world.   (The evil we see and commit is called sin. Sin is the breaking of God’s commands as described in the Ten Commandments–which by the way no one is exempt from breaking).

These apologies and excuses for atrocities carried out about the Jihadis that are led by Barack Obama, Hillary or other leaders are done for the same reason people in LGBT community can be targeted and murdered in cold blood while the community as a whole goes on to condemn another group unrelated to the crimes (in this case is was Christians).     And similarly the real reason Islam in many cases is being ignored for the crimes, beheadings, murders and persecution committed around the world is because the god of this world has blinded the minds of those who commit, excuse and ignore such acts whether they call themselves Muslim or not.

Cannot escape Bible predictions coming true

Many people scoff at the Bible and people who proclaim Jesus but in the Bible it is written that this kind of lawlessness will increase on this earth.  People will rise up against followers of Jesus Christ and such hatred of God would manifest itself daily more increasingly while lies would be believed and truth would be ignored and even hated.   We are seeing these and other Biblical predictions coming true despite people not even knowing why it’s happening or aware they are fulfilling biblical prophecies on a daily basis.

Who’s our spiritual father and which side are you on?

Jesus said our father is the devil himself unless we are born again meaning our broken relationship with God is renewed.   And the only way that can happen is if sin can be forgiven and some kind of payment made to forgive such sin against God.   All crimes and acts of violence and sin will not go unpunished.   God is perfect and holy and cannot have sin in His presence. Therefore someone must pay the penalty for sin.     However, we as human beings by nature love sin so its quite apparent we have a problem….. especially if God is real and really cannot have sin His presence.   We love sin but God hates sin.    This creates the biggest dilemma for humankind.   People must somehow try to remove God, destroy His followers, ignore His existence and that He hates sin or…… repent and submit to God.    Simply put, we all either find ourselves on God’s side or Satan’s side.    We’re either working for and serving God or we’re working for the Devil and living to serve sin.

Despite what people might attempt to do with God whether it be to ignore Him in their minds and actions, or whether it be to seek Him with their whole heart,  He says we are by nature children of His anger (children of wrath).   We deserve judgment in hell no matter what we think about God, Religion or other people.    The reason is because our deserving of judgment has nothing to do with our actual goodness or our perceived goodness and good deeds.       But when it seemed like there was no hope for any of us to escape God’s judgment for breaking His Law or enter His presence, God made a way of escape and way of salvation.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.  Proverbs 9:10

” There is none righteous, no, not one;
There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God.
They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.”
” Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit”; ” The poison of asps is under their lips”;
” Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”
” Their feet are swift to shed blood;
Destruction and misery are in their ways;
And the way of peace they have not known.”
” There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

Romans 3:10-18

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.    Romans 5:8

Why are so many people quick to protect murderers?

good_evil

It needs to be pointed out that not all people who call themselves Muslim in actuality are.  And likewise not all people who say they are Christian are actually followers of Jesus.  Of course, this would be true in all belief systems.  In light of this knowledge, I believe it would be fair to say that a true Muslim is one who first and foremost follows Muhammad (which includes his actions and beliefs) and also follow the basic tenets of the Islamic religion.     And this is why the graphic below is so frightening to me and should be frightening to all non-Muslims (Kafirs).

sharia

So why are there are so many people not standing up against this evil that is being perpetrated against humanity?   I believe the answer is simple.  It is because they don’t believe that what is being done is evil (they hate the God of the Bible too) and therefore have become part of the problem.  And some people may not believe that it’s evil enough to care.  While others are ignorant of the facts about what Muhammad did and what his current followers do to non-Muslims.   Still others are just afraid to say what they believe.  We shouldn’t be afraid.  We must stand against evil and sin (breaking God’s commands).

The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.”  Proverbs 8:13

Whatever category we fall under, the Bible predicts terrible times ahead.   I hope you are ready before it’s too late and will escape the wrath to come.   Hope has come into the world and His name is Jesus.  www.areyougood.us

In San Bernardino, Paris and around the World, what is going on?

Sb_2004_dt_snowskyline_003a

“Political Correctness”

You may have heard the saying “Follow the money”.   When seeking the source of terror or criminal activity one usually can follow the money and find the answer.   But how about when the terror is based on a belief system?

Despite government authorities statements they were still seeking a motive related to the San Bernardino massacre,  I suggest we can know the motive of the Muslim murderers, not only San Bernardino CA but Paris, New York, the middle-east and elsewhere.   We can know the motive if only we are able to look at history and ideologies.   The answers are right before our eyes yet it seems many in government and law enforcement including the FBI (at least publicly) choose to close their eyes and instead invent motives and causes that remain politically correct.

“Follow the Leader”

The greatest way to know how one is to act within a particular belief is to follow the leader of the belief system.   As example, in Christianity Jesus is the one we are to follow.  Although it’s true that Jesus is more than a “great leader” because He is God–He is the perfect example of what it means to be a Christian.    Therefore, all one needs to do to know about Islam is to see how their leader acted.  In this case the leader is Muhammad.

Motive for the beheadings, mass murder and massacres we see by Muslims committed around the world is simply done because of what Muhammad already did.  He believed in the annihilation and subjugation of societies.   Don’t believe me, watch the video below.

Paris 2015: Again Islamic Terrorists Capitalize on World’s Ignorance

drudge_hl

When referring to the recent deadly attacks in Paris France, The Drudge Report got the headline right when it posted “Muslim Rampage in Paris“.   The attacks where not caused by some fringe group of terrorists nor were they random in nature.  This Paris attack, like all the other bombings and murderous rampages which usually include the infamous words “Allahu Akbar” before destruction is unleashed, is done deliberately by followers of one of the first mass murderers in history: Muhammad.

In a day when so-called tolerance of all except for Christians and Jews is the talking point and political correctness is the mantra for many, we will see terror increase.   Until leaders and authorities around the world wake up to the harsh and unpopular reality that the religion of Islam is not really a religion of peace but is in fact behind the destruction and persecution we have around the world there will be an increase of terror and murder against Christians, Jews and the rest of the Kafirs (all non-Muslims).

Such ignorance will not be without a cost.   We are paying for our ignorance with beheadings, suicide bombings, mass tortures and murders like 9/11 and Paris 2015.   Whether we call the terrorism ISIS, al-Qaeda, jihad or something else the written manual and source is the same.  And while authorities continue to be ignorant of the source for these attacks and wonder at the motive of the attacks themselves, the attacks and Islamic terrorist activity will grow because Islam, Muhammad and the god allah demand it.

Roseburg Shooter hated the God of the Bible

roseburg

After the shooting that took place in Roseburg Oregon today at a community college there, Barrack Obama blamed the shooting on the lack of gun laws in place.  Even though the identity of the murderer has not been released yet, one thing is for certain:  the shooter was not a Christian.   However,  if it turns out that the shooter was a Muslim, I and many other people know gun laws will have nothing to do with whether murder is carried out or not.    People who have determined to murder someone else do not care about a gun law or not.  People who hate God, Christians and Jews don’t care whether a gun law in place makes it difficult to get a gun or not.  Terrorists are terrorists because they already have access to whatever they need to inflict harm on others.  Until we all understand this simple reality, we can never begin to get a handle on shootings, and mass murders.  Until we understand that evil exists in the hearts of all men and that we all by nature are hostile to God without Jesus Christ, we are going to continue be subject to continued madness in this world.  Unless we each humble ourselves before Almighty God, repent of our sins against Him and put our complete trust in Him through Jesus Christ, we can never escape coming Judgment.   Will you be ready?

It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.  Hebrews 9:27

“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”    John 3:36
