One Brave Christian Woman Contra Mundum

Feb 8, 2014

In my books, Heidi Mund is a Christian superstar, a champion, and a hero. We so desperately need more like her. Instead we have millions of gutless, spineless effeminate churchians who will never open their mouth about anything. Indeed, our churches are filled with craven cowards and spineless wonders.

So who is Heidi Mund? She is a small, frail, quiet German woman, but one who allows the Holy Ghost to empower her greatly, speaking out forcefully and fearlessly against syncretism, idolatry and the lies of the enemy. Her story has been captured in a video which has gone viral, and rightly so. You can see the 6-minute video here.

All this has to do with a very worrying new development which I have written often about: the interfaith movement and Chrislam. As a Muslim imam was doing his Allahu Akbar thing in the middle of an old Reformation church, this was just too much for this brave and conscientious woman.

It was yet another foolish interfaith service – you know the ones I am talking about. The ones in which all the duped Christians become slavish dhimmies, while the Muslims simply consolidate their power and take over the churches from within.

mund, heidiArticles have already been written about this feisty supersaint, so no need for me to repeat myself here. Let me quote parts of a recent piece on her: “Islam continues to grow in power and influence across Europe. But at a recent concert in Germany, one Christian woman decided to stand up to it. ‘The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace’ by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins was supposed to be an interfaith event to bring Christianity and Islam together.

“But when the Muslim imam began his call to prayer during the concert, he was interrupted by a small woman in the balcony proclaiming that ‘Jesus Christ alone is Lord of Germany,’ and shouting, ‘I break this curse.’ She also invoked the name of Martin Luther and warned the audience that what was happening was ‘a lie’.”

Hey, that alone tells me she is my kind of woman. Indeed, she is more of a man than most men I know of. Finally someone with guts and conviction, willing to face hostile, deceived mobs to speak the truth. But wait, there’s more:

“It happened on Nov. 10, 2013, at the Memorial Church of the Reformation in the Rhineland city of Speyer, built to honor Martin Luther. It isn’t just any church. It’s a monument to the Protestant Reformation and a memorial to the spiritual transformation of Germany.

“It was at this spiritual landmark that a Muslim imam was invited to give the call to prayer. When the brave German woman, whose real name is Heidi Mund, heard about the event, she prayed. ‘I was asking Jesus, “Lord, shall I go there?” So, when I have to drive one and half hours, you know, I think, “Is it worth it to go or can others go?” So, this is human laziness, yeah?’ Mund recalled.

“She grabbed her German flag emblazoned with the words ‘Jesus Christ is Lord’ and headed for the concert, still not sure what she would do when she got there. ‘Until the imam started with his shouting, I did not really know what to do. I was just prepared for what God wants me to do,’ she told CBN News. Then the Muslim call to prayer began, and Heidi said she felt something rising up inside her.

“‘I would call it a holy anger,’ she recounted. ‘And then I rose with my flag and I was calling and proclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord over Germany.’ ‘My purpose was, I broke this curse because [Muslims] say, “Only Allah is the Lord. He is God, the only God.” And I broke this curse in this church and I broke it over my country,’ she continued.

“And she repeated the words of Martin Luther in 1521 after he refused to recant his faith in scripture alone: ‘Here I stand. I can do no other’ and ‘Save the church of Martin Luther!’ Video shows another concert-goer trying to calm her by saying, ‘This is a concert for peace.’

“Mund can be heard responding in German, ‘No it’s not! Allahu Akbar is what Muslims scream while murdering people! Don’t be fooled! Don’t be fooled! This is a lie!’ She was thrown out of the church.” And she was a hundred per cent correct to compare the rise of Islam in Germany with the rise of Nazism.

Both are murderous political ideologies bent on conquest, happy to use any means – including bloodshed and terror – to achieve world domination. And her story is even more amazing here, given that she was not always a Christian:

“An evangelist by gifting, Mund grew up an atheist in communist East Germany. But now, as a believer, her burden and her ministry is for the spiritual rebirth of Germany. ‘I feel I have to protect my country and my people. I am only a little woman but I feel I have to protect them,’ she said.”

And like a true woman of God with a true prophetic calling, she is believing God that things can be turned around big time: “Mund is trusting God for a miracle in what is a very wealthy and, some would say, spiritually dead nation. ‘I know nothing is impossible for my God. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing,’ she said.

“‘From a human point of view I feel our country is lost. It’s already lost. It’s done. Because I see so many changes in the country, in every area,’ she continued. ‘But I trust God that he has a “Plan A” and that my country is not lost and that He will reach us and He will come and change the whole situation’.”

Wow, what a woman. Amen and amen. Just imagine if we had 100 more Christian champions in the world like her. With that kind of Holy Ghost firepower we could do tremendous things for Christ and the Kingdom. But sadly our churches are packed full of weenies, whiners and woosies.

Perhaps never before in church history do we have so many invertebrate Christians on the planet – at least in the West. I suspect that 95 per cent of believers today would never open their mouths in this way in defence of their faith and their Lord.

They are instead gutless wonders who live in fear: fear of what others might think; fear of being criticised; fear of offending people; fear of being seen as controversial and intolerant; fear of rocking the boat. Well, such cowards have no place in the church of Jesus Christ.

We are in desperate need for a million more Heidis. Lord raise them up please. Replace our wimps with warriors and our cowards with courageous saints. Oh God, raise up an army of anointed, Holy Ghost-empowered warriors who will never fear man but only fear you.

Thank you Lord for Heidi Mund. And since this is Germany we are talking about, let me finish with the words of another brave German Christian, from his hymn “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”:

“And though this world with devils filled should threaten to undo us, we will not fear, for God has willed his truth to triumph through us. The Prince of darkness grim, we tremble not for him. His rage we can endure for lo his doom is sure – One little Word shall fell him.”

  • So inspiring to see Heidi defend Jesus Christ and call the event for what it is – a lie. She gave public witness in an intimidating setting. Yes, she does deserve to be called a champion just like many around the world giving public witness outside abortion mills (very often hostile environments), counselling and praying for mothers and the Unborn. God bless us.

  • It is a blessing that there are people like Heidi who make a strong stand against this blasphemous religion Islam.

    When I was in Germany I noticed there are some fairly strong groups both Christian and non-Christian raising awareness amongst the public of the dangers of Islam.

    Unfortunately here in Australia there seems to be the constant threat of prosecution against people who make a stand like this (which of course is one sided against Christians).

  • More power to Heidi, in the name of Jesus Christ. It is a pity there were not hundreds more like Her.

    Her action should be a catyalist for enshrining more Christians to speak out against the odds and speak the Truth no matter what the consequences.

    I love people like Heidi, more so when they do what they do for Jesus Christ and rebuke Satan with courage and conviction.

  • Heidi Mund is amazing!! She is the modern day embodiment of Daniel in the Lion’s den!!! May YHWH raise up a million more like her… And may I be among that number!!

    This performance by Steve Green at a Billy Graham crusade unaccompanied captures, I think, the heart of the Reformation, and the Spirit that is, in these last days, calling for a holy revolution in the earth, where the glory of The Lord is filling the earth, as the waters cover the seas.. Please enjoy: m.youtube.com/watch?v=NRJHKzU_t1M

  • Thanks Bill, for drawing this to our attention. This feisty and faithful Christian lady has shown a heart that beats for the same Gospel that Luther believed and proclaimed, and for the honour of her Lord.

    I was not aware of the incident or the video until now. Your comment is spot on, and I Intend to circulate both. Heidi Mund speaks of Germany being only nominally Christian, but here in the UK the position is not much different, and the same spirit of compromise with the secular world and Islam prevails – especially in the ‘State’ church. Heidi is an inspiration, and as as you say – may the Lord raise up an army of believers who will be willing to make the same courageous stand for the Gospel when similar circumstances call. “Allahu Akbar” is not the same God as revealed in Scripture and in Christ.

  • it is true. They came for my father-in-law, a pastor in Pakistan and told him that after 30+ years of preaching about Jesus Christ he had to stop preaching or they would kill him. He refused, so they broke into his house and beat him to death in front of his daughter-in-law and his grandchildren.
    Beware, Muslims are not peaceful!! If they claim to be it is a lie, so don’t e fooled by it.
    Remember the Holy Scriptures tell you: The TRUTH shall set you free!!! The Quran will NOT set you free. It will enslave you and your family

  • Sad that Heidi was thrown out, and not the Imam.

    How can you dialogue with and have peace with, a religion that states Jesus was not crucified, {in its unholy book}

    The spirit of Judas Iscariot was active in that place.

    Thank you Lord Jesus for Heidi`s witness.

  • Thanks for the link to the Youtube video. It’s really encouraging to see a woman doing *something* out there in the world 🙂

  • Fantastic!

    We could definitely do with a million more Heidis…or maybe a hundred Danny Nalliahs…

  • What a brave woman! Inspirational! Thanks for posting the video.

  • Yes, Joel, I echo your prayer. It is so easy to wish for more people to be like Heidi, but would we be that person if it were required of us? I pray, by His grace I would.
    There are some more inspiring words of that great hymn. “Let friend and kindred go, your mortal life also, the body they may kill, his truth abideth still.”

    And perhaps never before in church history have we been in need of all believers being true soldiers of Jesus Christ like Heidi. If we could only consider how much tragedy might be prevented by a little bit of courage now. This is one of the lessons, I am sure we were meant to learn from history.

  • Heidi is right: Jesus Christ is not only Lord over Germany – He is Lord of the Universe!

    For many Westerners, the ideas of democracy and theocracy are mutually exclusive. Surely the truth of God’s sovereignty admits of Him being able to work through any human political regime – either with the particular political system or in spite of the political system and its stated intent.

    The historical nexus between Hitler’s Third Reich and the anti-Zionist Pan-Arab nationalist movements of the Middle East is well-documented.

  • When I started as a student at Swinburne College (now Swinburne University) in 1974, on almost my first day there I stood up and objected to the evolutionary view being taught. I was most heartened after the class was over to have another new student, a complete stranger to me, come up and say that she was 100% behind me.

    I’m sorry that Heidi (apparently) did not have anyone else in the church support her when she took her stand (apart from the two who came with her). Even if we are afraid or unsure of ourselves to stand alone and take the initiative (I’m not sure I would have done what she did), surely, if we are there, we can immediately show our support for someone else who does. I think I would have done that at least, and they would have had to throw me out as well.

  • One blog suggests that this is probably the same woman. I suspect the blog is correct in that.

  • Bill, You and I have discussed religion and other subjects several times over an extensive time frame. You are also aware that I am an atheist and I offer no apologies. However, I totally support Heidi Mund against Islam. And you are absolutely correct with reference to Muslims across the globe. One only has to watch SBS news to see the type of people that scream ‘whilst slaughtering each other’, God is Great!! When will our spineless politicians wake up??

  • I join others in praising God for this wonderful woman. I for one am always raising the alarm about the world wide aim of Islam, which is to dominate and rule.
    However, there are other ways to make a public stand for Christ in Australia such as candidating for Parliament, writing to papers about issues from a biblical viewpoint (and risking ridicule), taking part in street marches, quite apart from giving a consistent witness in the workplace and/or neighbourhood.
    There are many heroes in my local church and other churches I know and I salute them.
    So Bill, weren’t you rather sweeping in some of your comments and I quote, “Our churches are filled with craven cowards and spineless wonders—-Our churches are packed full of weenies, whiners and woosies.”
    By all means wake up the sleeping but be balanced.

  • Thanks Graham. But you may be missing the point here. I try to explain this elsewhere:

  • Dear Bill,

    Thankyou for letting us know about Heidi. The Holy Spirit does indeed blow where it wills. I too am elderly so I can also understand the sacrifice she made just getting to the church in the first place. I would have dearly liked to have attended one of the massive demonstrations against the drum lines aimed to cull the sharks but wasn’t physically able to get there. I like to think I would have had the courage to shout out ‘What about closing the abortion clinics which are culling 8,000 human beings every year in WA?” Hopefully someone else was moved by the Holy Spirit to do this but of course we wouldn’t get to know if they did. Not through the MSM anyway.

  • Islam: “God is great”
    Christianity: “God is good” (and thankfully great as well.)

  • Enjoyed the video and was quite tickled ( and drawn to notice) that during the part where she was interviewed in her own home that there was a Shofar lying on the mantel behind her….I think that is profound…….
    Curious to know how many noticed….

  • Praise Jesus for Heidi!! I too think my own America is lost but then faith rises up in me again and I cry out to the Lord for my nation. There are many Heidi’s all over Germany, America and the whole world who know NOTHING is impossible for our God!! I cry out for the lost to be saved (Muslims, Jews, atheists etc) and trust that He will sweep those into His Kingdom who belong there. Not one wil perish!! Thank you Heidi for your strong faith. it encourages mine as well!!

  • It is not surprising that YouTube has now removed the video, probably felt muslim’s would be offended.

  • Video is still available here

  • New Year’s greetings to you Bill our commander-in-chief in our battling against the savage political and religious ideology of Islam as well as the deviance and pervertedness of homosexuality and LGBT, meanwhile continuing praying for God’s full protection of you and your family against all the enemies’ attack. May God richly bless you and use you that your undaunted endeavour of speaking forcefully and fearlessly against all things anti-God and anti-Christianity be effective.

    What a courageous and conscientious German woman Heidi Mund is, she is without doubt a genuine heroin. Gutless, coward Christian men are put to shame. You are absolutely right that “She makes most believers look like spineless wonders.” The country of Germany and its people should be very proud of having her as paragon citizen. May I use my very-limited German to express my acclamation of her as ‘eine große Deutschen’ (‘a great German’).

    Bill, I’ve also penned a piece recently, how can I have it shared with you?
