Kenyan woman leaves Islam after having visions of Jesus
On January 13, 2021, Mansitula Buliro, a Kenyan woman, experienced visions of Jesus, calling for her to follow Him, amid her Muslim evening prayers, reports International Christian Concern.
For hours, Buliro asked her Christian neighbor about her visions. She concluded that Jesus was real, put her complete faith in Him, and returned home to pray to the one true God. Suddenly, a neighbor knocked on the door. He discovered Buliro praying as a Christian and left immediately.
Buliro’s husband believed her to be possessed and became angry. She explained, “I kept quiet. [He] started slapping and kicking me indiscriminately. I then fell. He went inside the house and came back with a knife and started cutting my mouth, saying, ‘Allahu akbar,’ (which means the Muslim god is greater), I am punishing you to not speak about Yeshua in my house. This is a Muslim home!”
Her screams, along with her children’s cries, alarmed the neighbors who stopped the attack. He divorced her on the spot and threatened to kill her if she did not leave. Tragically, as a result of the attack, Buliro miscarried their 13-week-old baby. She is now living with a Christian family.
Proverbs 2:22 says, “But the wicked will be cut off from the land and the treacherous will be uprooted from it.”
Karl Rove: Biden’s call for unity marred by “racism, nativism, and fear” reference
Fox News contributor Karl Rove took issue with President Joe Biden’s inaugural call for unity in light of his misguided slam against the 74 million Americans who voted for former President Donald Trump.
ROVE: “He talked about the forces dividing America and said what was dividing us as a country was the difference between the American ideal and ‘racism, nativism, and fear.’ Well, I think opposition to racism, nativism, and fear is what unites Americans. I don’t think this is a question of some of us believe in the American ideal and 74 million people believed in racism, nativism, and fear. I don’t think that’s the division.”
President Biden’s mask double standard
Last Thursday, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy challenged White House press secretary Jen Psaki on President Biden’s mask-wearing hypocrisy as he was maskless on federal land at the Lincoln Memorial on Wednesday night despite his 100-day Executive Order requiring masks on all federal lands.
DOOCY: “Why weren’t President Biden and all members of the Biden family math at all times on federal lands last night, if he signed an executive order that mandates masks on federal lands at all times?”
PSAKI: “He was celebrating an evening of a historic day in our country. And certainly he signed the mask mandate because it’s a way to send a message to the American public about the importance of wearing masks, how it can save tens of thousands of lives. We take a number of COVID precautions, as you know, here in terms of testing, social distancing mask-wearing ourselves.”
DOOCY: “But Joe Biden often talks about it is not just important, the example of power, but the power of our example. Was that a good example for people who are watching who might not pay attention?”
PSAKI: “The power of his example is also the message he sends by signing 25 executive orders including almost half of them related to COVID. I think we have bigger issues to worry about at this moment in time.”
Matthew 7:5 says, “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”
Tennessee mayor lowers flag on Biden’s inauguration day
A Tennessee mayor lowered his small town’s American flag to half-staff in mourning for the country on the day of President Joe Biden’s inauguration. He posted about lowering the flag on Facebook, reports TheBlaze.com.
Bruceton Mayor Robert Keeton announced on Facebook, “The Town of Bruceton grieves for our Republic and our loss of freedoms. We mourn the victims of the Chinese plague. … We pray that God delivers and restores us and that we do not fall to the clutches of communism.”
Keeton’s Facebook post drew a plethora of attention.
One critic wrote, “This is a slap in the face of all of our military heroes and leaders who have sacrificed their lives for this country. That’s why we lower the flag. Mayor, you’re placing the importance of your own personal, childish pouting on the same level with the men and women who have died fighting for you. This is shameless.”
In an interview with The Jackson Sun, Mayor Keeton explained, “I’m an attorney, and I’m seeing our constitutional rights being trampled on virtually every day, and I’m concerned for our republic, even though I’ve lost people that I know to this Chinese virus.”
Amazon refused to help with vaccine distribution under Trump
And finally, after the announcement last Thursday that Amazon will assist the Biden administration with the COVID-19 vaccine distribution, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said it would be “disgusting” if Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos chose not to help the Trump administration in like manner.
GRAHAM: “Let’s ask ourselves the following question: ‘Is Jeff Bezos friendly to the Democratic cause?’ Yes. He owns The Washington Post. I think it’s pretty bad if they had this capability. They should have shared it with the Trump administration. Here’s what I think. The drug companies had the vaccine. They knew it was going to work days before the election; they waited till after the election to announce it.
“I think if it’d been a Democratic president, they would have announced it before the election. I think what Amazon’s doing is pretty disgusting, if, in fact, they could have helped the Trump administration and they chose not to because they don’t like him. That’s not a good moment for the Amazon company.”
