Saints Alive January 2010 Newsletter
A Note from Ed
I wonder if I can get this message out of my gut right now. It has been brewing there for months, just hanging around beneath the surface. It isn’t my usual topic of discussion.
If you are wondering what is happening to our country right now, it is not much of a mystery. It has been coming for a long time and it is going to get a lot worse.
It is imperative that we place our faith and trust in the Lord and not the government leaders, not in the economy, not in our savings or our retirement plans and our health insurance policies, nor in our credit lines and definitely not in the news.
The founding Fathers created a map or plan for the future when they came out with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It was not perfect, but it gave the fledgling government something on which to stand and it was based on faith in God and laws based on His principles.
Today, that base has been crumbling all around us. One of the central positions of the newly formed Republic was the right to worship freely. Our forefathers had escaped from a world of State controlled religions and wanted that yoke broken from the people. Today, the one religion that seems despised and repugnant to our leaders is Christianity, while Islam is welcomed with open arms.
What was once freedom of religion has become freedom from religion and the freedom to do or say any foul or despicable thing that can be conceived in the corrupt human mind. In fact, in many cases, these things are done at taxpayer expense with government approval.
There is no need to go through the list. You know the evils that are pulling this once great country into the sewer. I have said repeatedly that we are entering into the post Christian era. Even much of the church is swirling around in darkness, grasping at one new extra-biblical concept after the other, trying to reconcile its platform to new ideologies.
With pastors being jailed for speaking out against blatant sin and the Hate Crime Bill particulars spreading to include ‘hurtful’ speech against a person’s faith, and with government plans for taxing everything that is not nailed down and most of what is nailed down, I believe that ministries like Saints Alive will be shut down within the next five years.
I see tax exemptions for churches; their properties and the tithes and gifts of their congregations going away next.
Friends, it is time to stand up and be the kinds of Christians that paved the way for the freedoms this nation once had. It is time to be bold for Christ and take back what the enemy would steal. Be as the bold men and women of God who endured tortures and death to speak as ambassadors for the true King.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly,
as I ought to speak. Eph 6:17-20 KJV
Your brother in Christ,
It Has Been Foretold By the Lord
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying,
Tell us, when shall these things be?
and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
And Jesus answered and said unto them,
Take heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:
see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you:
and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another,
and shall hate one another.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Matt 24:3-13 KJV
An Urgent Word About Finances
I hesitate to bring up the subject of finances while the economy is so shaken, but for the sake of the ministry and those we must reach for His Cause, I ask you to consider a special gift to the ministry this week.
We are in serious need of some special gifts. January and February are always tight months, but this year is as bad as it gets. We are unable to send out our regular newsletter and the new website that was supposed to go live on January 1st is back on the table again because of several serious glitches that we need expert help in resolving and the lack of funds to make it happen.
We really need a few heroes.
Please pray about sending in a gift toDAy.
You can do that by
sending in a gift on line at our website www.saintsalive.com
or by sending a PayPal gift to firstname.lastname@example.org
[These gifts go directly into our account]
Or by calling us at 1-800-861-9888
your gifts are still tax-deductible
The Muslim Plan for World Dominion
Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.
Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.
Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.
When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.
Here’s how it works:
As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:
United States — Muslim 0.6%
Australia — Muslim 1..5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1.8%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%
At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:
Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%
From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:
France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:
Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 15%
After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, as in:
Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%
At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:
Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%
From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:
Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77..5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%
After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:
Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco– Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:
Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 100%
Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.
‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. — Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’
It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.
Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century.

Christians of Egypt are Massacred, and President Mubarak is Still Silent
WASHINGTON, Jan. 19 /Christian Newswire/ — The Copts, Egypt ‘s Christian minority, number approximately 12 million, about 15% of Egypt ‘s population. Under the rule of President Mubarak, violent attacks against them run rampant. These attacks were once carried out mainly by organized Islamic terrorist groups. The climate of hatred in Egypt has worsened to the point that attacks against Christians are now carried out by their Muslim neighbors.
The latest attack took place in Naga Hamady, Upper Egypt , during the late hours of Wednesday, January 6, 2010. Drive-by gunmen opened fire from machineguns at worshippers coming out of church after celebrating Coptic Christmas mass. Seven people were instantly killed, and many others were seriously wounded.
President Mubarak, now in power for almost 3 decades, during which 7 American presidents took office, turns a blind eye to what happens to the Coptic citizens of his country.
Egypt, the recipient of 2 billion dollars yearly of American foreign aid since the signing of the Camp David peace treaty in1978, can not continue abusing the human rights of its Coptic Christian citizens, a basic perquisite for receiving American foreign aid.
