God’s intervention saves 72 captive Nigerian Christians from Boko Haram firing squad
19 March 2019

A group of 500 Nigerian Muslim-background Christians, who gathered together for safety after a string of Boko Haram attacks, were later attacked again by the Islamist militant group. Most escaped, apart from 76 men, women and children who were taken captive, according to a Barnabas Fund contact.

The 76 were taken to a Boko Haram terrorists’ camp where they were tortured. The four male leaders of the group were told at gunpoint to renounce their faith in Christ and revert to Islam. When they refused, holding fast to their Saviour, the men were shot in front of their families and friends.

The following week, the wives of the four martyred men were also ordered to renounce their faith or their children would be executed.

As the mothers struggled under this terrible burden into the night, the children came running in and said that the Lord Jesus had appeared to them and “all would be well”. According to the account, the Lord Jesus then appeared to all of the group and told them not to fear, that He would protect them. They should not renounce Him, but stay strong knowing that “He is the way, the truth and the life”.

The next morning the children, one a girl as young as four, were lined up against a wall by the terrorists and their four mothers were told they could save them if they renounced Jesus Christ and returned to Islam. The mothers refused. The soldiers cocked their rifles and prepared to take aim when they suddenly started to grab at their heads, screaming and shouting “Snakes, snakes!” Some ran away and others dropped dead where they stood.

As one of the soldiers fell down dead, a Christian captive reached down to pick up the soldier’s gun to fire at the fleeing Boko Haram militants, but the youngest child put her hand on his arm and said, “You don’t need to do that. Can you not see the men in white fighting for us?”

All 72 lives were spared and the group is now living in other regions of Nigeria that are safe for Christians. When our English-speaking contact asked their pastor why Jesus appeared to them and not to others he replied, “He does not need to. You have over 200 versions of Scripture and many people able to explain the Bible to you. These people do not.”

I am a person who believes that miracles happen, so I'm not going to pass judgment on these people and their experience. They've been through hell and back, and I'm happy they managed to escape their captors.

You're sure this wasn't because of Michelle Oboner's Hashtag campaign?

Leftists have tried to take credit for everything else Trump has done.

Maybe. Or, they are deluded and came to believe this nonsense. They don't all have to be intentionally lying. It's, no doubt, a mix of both.
