    God rest his soul in peace and protect his family. Ours is such a temporary world.

    May our King Jesus come quickly and reign on earth.

    “Precious in the sight of the Lord Is the death of His saints. …Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all you peoples! For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord endures forever.” (Psalm 116 and 117)

          Yes, that’s also why “moderate” Muslims cannot outcry anything. Our God will bring His justice upon the earth. Lord Jesus is worth our life. He is infinitely much more.
