Dear friend of KHCS,
It’s difficult to write this. But you
have no doubt heard about the recent wave of beheadings committed by
Journalist Daniel Pearl in Pakistan . .
. engineer Nicholas Berg and translator Kim Sun-il in Iraq . . .
helicopter mechanic Philip Johnson, Jr. in Saudi Arabia.
And these are just the tip of the
iceberg. Similar jihad-inspired barbarism occurs around the globe daily.
From Christians in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Nigeria to Hindu
priests and “unveiled” Hindu women in Kashmir
─ no “infidel” is safe.
And this is not just a new phenomenon.
These gruesome acts go back to the founding of Islam, when Mohammed
commanded the beheading of the Jewish Qurayza tribe in Arabia because they
refused to convert to Islam. The Qur’an commands, “When you encounter
those (infidels) who deny (Islam) then strike (their) necks.” (Surah
And in the 16th Century,
Babur, founder of the Mughal Empire in India, wrote, “Those who were
brought in alive [having surrendered] were ordered beheaded, after which a
tower of skulls was erected in the camp.”
You have to realize that, according to
Islamic dogma, you and I are “infidels.” And as such, we are potential
targets for this kind of Muslim butchery. The Qur’an commands it!
Is this a fulfillment of the Biblical
prophecy from the book of Revelation, given at the top of this letter? I
don’t know ─ but it is
But here’s the big question: Would you
deny the Lord Jesus Christ to keep your head? The choice really comes
down to: would you rather keep your head and lose your soul? That makes
the decision easier, doesn’t it?
This is the time to stand firm on the
Word of God, not the spurious claims of the Qur’an
─ on the Son of God, not
some self-proclaimed “prophet” ─
on the one true, living God, not the false god “Allah.”
These last days are also the time to
support the work of Christ, starting with your local church fellowship.
The non-commercial ministry of Joy 92-FM is also in need of
extra tax-deductible contributions.
While we are now broadcasting from our
new location, there is still much work left to be done to complete this
transition. We also need to report that funding for our move is still
many thousand dollars short of what is needed.
I know that August is typically a “lean”
time for many ministries, especially here in the Coachella Valley. I pray
that in spite of this, you will be able to send an extra-generous
contribution this month.
Your generous support enables KHCS
to keep on serving you with Information and Inspiration, 24 hours a day!
