Over ten Muslims entered a church in the Nigerian village of Antagara, but the Muslims did not know that numerous of the Christian men inside the church were armed with guns. When the Muslims got entry they immediately began opening fire on the congregation, killing nine people. The armed men retaliated, gathered together and planned a counter attack. They then chased after the Muslim heathens in a surprise ambush and slaughtered four of the Muslim heathens.
It was found out that the Muslim attack was a response to what the Christian militants did on some of their members the day before the conflict. The Muslims were conducting a funeral for the Emir of Gwoza, and during the burial some Christian militants approached the procession and arrested three Muslims because they were members of Boko Harm and were currently planning on killing more Christians.
The warriors were diligent enough to arrest the three devils in order to prevent more violence and shedding saintly blood. The next day, the Muslims, wanting seemingly vengeance, attacked the local church, only to suffer the sword of justice and have four of their heathen fellows righteously killed. One survivor of the attack on the church described the conflict:
The attack occurred at EYN Church (Church of Brethren, Nigeria) while the service was going on… Our church has some men as security group. They usually keep vigilance on the church especially when service is going on. As we were holding service, we started hearing gunshots and everybody fled, some through the windows and ran into a bush. Some whose houses are near the church also ran to their houses. Men in the community immediately mobilised and pursued the Boko Haram men. They were more than 10; they came with motorcycles and a car. Our vigilante killed four of the Boko Haram and arrested three. I later discovered nine of our men in the church security group were shot dead. I left Attangara yesterday afternoon, slept at Gwoza to get to Maiduguri today.
The whole battle is just one example of the eternal life of the saint. Christianity is a struggle, between good and evil, the Spirit and the flesh, the Sword of God and the scimitar of Satan. When the Christian wages the sword against the wicked, he is not partaking in the holy combat alone, but is also “compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1), “ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation” (Hebrews 1:14), the “armies of heaven” (Revelation 19:14) who assist the holy warriors who fight those who “help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD” (2 Chronicles 19:2).
When the Christian strikes, God strikes with him, for “God himself is with us for our captain” (2 Chronicles 13:12); He rules “over all the kingdoms of the heathen” (2 Chronicles 20:6); the Lord is “the shield of thy help” (Deuteronomy 33:29) Who “cut off the enemies of David every one from the face of the earth.” (1 Samuel 20:15)
Christianity is holy war; the Spirit of Christianity is militant, and entirely consists of an eternal struggle against evil. To learn more about our obligation to be soldiers in this war, THEN CLICK HERE TO GET OUR NEW 2-DISK SPECIAL ON CHRISTIAN MILITANCY AND WARFARE.
