My heart is breaking, our dear brothers and sisters have endured such tribulation. Such death, and destruction, I find myself saying over and over, How much longer O Lord?”
The stench of death continues to grow in this part of the world as does the blindness from the media. This poisonous, abomination of desolation is truly evil, coming only from the darkness of the pit. And this religious belief (sharia law) is allowed to grow. This tax on non-muslims is absolutely unbelievable. In today’s world the fact that this type of evil destructive force is able to grow is unfathomable. Prophecy is unfolding and the west sleeps. “How long o Lord?”
(Brietbart News) Locals told Nigeria’s Daily Post that Boko Haram members had previously come to the town two months ago. They requested the citizens pay a tax of 250,000 Nigerian Naira $1500 US currency so “God’s work” can be carried out. When the Islamists returned, they were apparently infuriated that the locals, many of whom lived in abject poverty, could only raise 70,000 Naira. A local told the Daily Post, “Actually, when they issued such threat, we all took it lightly, as we are all relaxed, and nobody bothered to make any extra effort to put in the amount they requested. Maybe that was what ignited this bloody attack because we were unable to meet their demand.”Boko Haram members believe in a society that strictly follows the Shariah, or Islamic law. Under Shariah law, non-Muslims must pay a Jizya tax because, since they are not Muslims, they are viewed as second-class subjects. Boko Haram Slaughters 20 Villagers for Failure to Pay Islamic Tax.
When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also.
