Beshir Kamel, a Christian musician, lost two of his brothers when 21 Coptic Christians were beheaded in Libya by animals being enabled by President Obama. They were faithful unto death. Their murderers were Islamic State members, in affiliation with the main body of ISIS, which is in Syria and in Iraq.
Appearing on the Arabic Christian TV network SAT-7, Kamel told Fayez Maher that he was proud of his brothers Bishoy Estafanos Kamel, 25, and Samuel Estafanos Kamel, 23, because they were “a badge of honour to Christianity.”
The video of their beheading has been videoed all around the globe as a witness for Christ, in which many of the men’s final words were “Lord Jesus Christ.”
Kamel’s thankfulness that his brother’s witness being included is nothing shy of understanding how the hand of God works in these situations. After all, I’m sure the Islamists deemed that their testimony and their martyrdom would cause fear to rise in the hearts of Christians not only in the area they are in, but also around the world. However, they fail to realize something that Tertullian wrote in the second century, hundreds of years before Islam was even known.
“The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.” (Apologeticus, Chapter 50)
“Since the Roman era, Christians have been martyred and have learned to handle everything that comes our way,” he said. “This only makes us stronger in our faith because the Bible told us to love our enemies and bless those who curse us.”
President Obama golfs while Egypt is taking care of business, anyway..
