About

Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

Islamist Militants Slaughter 106 Christians in Borneo


Kano, Nigeria (CNN) -- Dozens of residents in northeastern Nigeria have been killed in two separate attacks launched by Boko Haram Islamists, according to officials and residents.

Scored of Islamist insurgents dressed in military uniforms stormed the Christian farming village of Izghe, in Borno state, late Saturday and opened sporadic fire on residents, killing at least 106 people in an attack specifically targeted at male residents.The gunmen, who arrived in the village riding in trucks and on several motorcycles, opened fire and hacked male residents they had assembled in the village square. They moved door to door in search of male residents who were hiding.

The attack prompted an exodus of hundreds of panic-stricken residents of nearby villages to the neighboring Madagali district in Adamawa state. "We suspect that the gunmen were members of Boko Haram. They have taken over the village," said Madagali local government chairman, Maina Ularamu.. The attackers looted businesses and food stores "and loaded all their spoils into vehicles owned by residents and fled into the bush," said Ularamu.

A survivor of the attack, farmer Barnabas Idi, said he scaled the fence of his house and crawled for about 40 minutes to safety. Idi said that security agents were not present during the attack. In the second attack early Saturday, suspected Boko Haram gunmen opened fire on Doron Baga, a fishing village along Lake Chad.

"They opened fire from all directions, forcing residents to jump into the lake in a bid to escape, and many drowned while others were gunned down," said Babagana Gwoni, a survivor of the attack. The gunmen looted fish and foodstuffs before setting houses on fire, Gwoni said. Lt. Col. Mohammed Dole, a military spokesman, confirmed the Doron Baga attack but declined to give details. 

Gunmen suspected to be members of Islamist Boko Haram, Saturday night slaughtered several Christian villagers in a latest attack in Borno State. The local government Chairman, Maina Ularamu told newsmen that he got reports that over 50 people were killed in an attack launched Saturday night’s on Izghe village. One of the survivors who miraculously escaped the deadly attack said over 63 villagers were decimated in the renewed attack. It was learnt that the dare-devil attackers looted the village food stores and went away with about 10 vehicles.

Yes, this is in far off Africa, and yes, their methods of worship are different than ours, but they are our brothers and sisters that are suffering and dying for their love and faith in Jesus Christ. If you have eyes to see and ears to hear you surely know that the day of the Lord is coming, the signs of a world and society in its death throes are all around us. If you watched the Grammy awards you know how far society has slid, and if you're a Christian in the military you may soon get a briefing on how your government frowns on your faith in Jesus


If you think that persecution for your faith in Jesus will not happen on these shores you need to think again Christian. It may not come in the form of armed Islamist fanatics, here in the United States the method in which Satan's wrath (not God's wrath) will be poured out on us will more than likely be political and economic variety, which will explain the mark of the beast quite nicely. Couple that with churches that are gleefully leading the faithful astray I believe we are looking down the barrel of the end times right now. It's not going to be long before it becomes clear to all of the remaining faithful.

As for me, I personally believe that getting a 'Get Out of Tribulation Free' card just for having been born in this time period is not going to happen. To me the idea of letting a generation that has had their faith untested and an easy life avoid the tribulation feels like a demonic trick. This generation is no better than the previous generations, and much worse in many ways, why should we stroll into heaven unscathed while generations were hunted down and murdered for their faith?

The on-going slaughter of our christian brothers and sisters in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia should serve as a reminder that God's word is the final authority. No where in the bible does it say we're going to have a good time, that it's going to be easy. In fact Jesus Himself told us that we are going to suffer because we love him:
21 Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22 You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved. 23 “But whenever they persecute you in one city, flee to the next; for truly I say to you, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel until the Son of Man comes.  (Matthew 10:21-23)
