A small band of Christians have formed an army to fight and kill jihadists who attack the holy sites of Syria. This is an incredible story of heroism, of how a few men can defeat entire armies, and it has never been reported before in the English language, until now.
The followers of Muhammad have invaded the entire Christian city of Saidnaya, in Syria, and as they debase and scoff the churches with their heretical presence, they oppress the saints as they cry out their blasphemous utterances, as the Pharaoh did, saying, “Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go?” (Exodus 5:2)
They have flooded the city, and when it seemed that the moon of Allah had eclipsed the sun and its incommensurable glory, the darkness was hindered, a ray of the heavens charged through the fog of confusion, and the mist of its holiness illuminated the single most lofty point of Saidnaya: a high pinnacle upon which stands a statue of Jesus Christ and a beautiful church called Deir Cherubim, or The House of the Cherubim.
The building of the statue was supported by the Russian Orthodox Church and the Russian government; it bears the title, “I Have Come to Save the World,” and it is a glimmering glade in the midst of a hellish forest of beastly and sinister devils.
Why is such a high position still preserved from the rapacious hands of the deceptive Islamists? While its protection is under the providence of the Almighty, it is physically guarded by those Christians who “endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Titus 2:3), and who have hope in the God Who “shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.” (Romans 16:20)
They call themselves the Defenders of the Church, or The Lions of the Cherubim, an order of crusaders who exclaim that Jesus is the highest point, and make this explicit; who stand upon the lighthouse of Christ in the midst of a turbid ocean of Muslims whose waves of violence hit against the house of wise men, and though they come against the fortress guided by Heaven, it falls not, “for it was founded upon a rock.” (Matthew 7:25)
One of the Christian militants valiantly declared:
We are going to make graves for the terrorists in this land. These are our holy places, and those churches are thousands of years old, we will never give up on them. If they think they will come and destroy it and pillage it, we will not permit them, we will be hear stedfast till we finish the last of them. If they think the money that comes from the Arab world is going to help them, they are mistaken. We are the owners of this land, not them.
The Syrian army positioned a tank to defend the church, and the terrorists blew it up. But the Lions of Cherubim still cannot be defeated.
Here is a video of the Muslims blowing up the tank as it guards the church:
The Christians vanquished them, “smote them, and slew them,” (Joshua 10:26), and killed 65 Muslims. And as the Israelites did unto their enemies, the Christians came to the bodies of the slain Muslims, “and put their feet upon the necks of them.” (Joshua 10:24)
Here is a video showing the Christians stepping in triumph upon the corpses of their enemies (NOTE: The Christians say Allahu Akbar in mockery of the jihadists): (Note: Original Video removed by YouTube) “This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube’s policy on shocking and disgusting content.”
The battle lasted 7 hours. The attack was fearsome, but our men were very eager to fight.
Another statement from the holy army recounted:
Not one of the Jihadists was able to come to the vicinity of the church. …The Jihadists were hiding behind a big boulder. And our heroes did their duty. We had four martyrs and six injured.
The jihadists fled to the mosque, but this did not stop the Christians. They attacked the mosque, ripped right through it with bullets. Here is the video of the attacked mosque:
Wipe thy tear O Syria, your enemies make a tumult against thee, they gather together, with the arrow of treachory, and they have destroyed their reputation, they take the cover of religion to steal your monuments out of greed. Even their young and old fear to go to Friday prayers. The destruction will end, and victory will come shining forth, and tomorrow we will have victory with Assad and light up the candle.
It was on this very spot of Syria where the Crusaders of old, in their striving to defend the holy sites of Christendom, came to meditate upon the sublime tenets of Heaven, and it is now here where the Christians war against the citizens of Satan’s tyranny, to defend the holy sites of Syria from those who desire to defile them. As one of the Christian militants said:
We have to defend Deir Cherubim because it’s a high place and a holy church. We are here to defend this place because of its religious importance.
Truly the land of Syria is sacred, for its earth was blessed by the feet of saintly fighters who established the model to which every holy crusader followed and still follows.
It was in Syria where Abraham smote the wicked king Chedorlaomer and his confederacy of despots, and liberated Lot (Genesis 14:15); it was in Syria where David slew 22,000 pagans (2 Samuel 8:5); it was in Syria where Heaven’s light enwrapped St. Paul, and “he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?” (Acts 9:3-4). It is in Syria where holy warriors now fight the persecutors of Christ; and it will be in this same land, when Christ returns in the final crusade, that “Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap”, (Isaiah 17:1) in which the Islamists will be wiped out, and the saints triumphant.
Saidnaya, the city in which this fighting is taking place, literally means “Our Lady” in Syriac, referring to the Virgin Mary. It was Mary who said in her song, that God “hath shewed strength with his arm” (Luke 1:51), and it is through these Christian militants, that God has illustrated the fortitude of His arm, in that while the whole of Saidnaya is conquered, the Muslims still cannot take the Church of the Cherubim.
It is said by the native Christians that Saidnaya is the place where Cain killed Abel; and how profound is it, that now, in this very spot, the successors of Cain are still butchering the successors of Abel, but with these modern crusaders, the followers of the holy son of Adam has succeeded in crushing the acolytes of his wicked brother.
And on this holy soil, where the blood of the martyr Abel “crieth unto me from the ground” (Genesis 4:10), the sublime image of Christ ascends the city, and the hope that it emanates enriches the soul of the crusader, to put out the darkness, so that the brilliance of Heaven may forevermore shine again and eclipse the citadels of Allah with its eternal rays of light.
After reading this, PLEASE DONATE TO SAVE CHRISTIAN LIVES IN SYRIA.
