ISLAM: Is it...anti-Christ?
The World needs to know!
by Bishop Samuel Smith

  • The facts are in: Islam is a fierce religion, and a major component of the Judgment of God against America.
  • This article contains undeniable quotes from the Islamic Quran. The Quran does incite violence against those who do not convert.
  • America has passed the tipping point, there is no hope, short of a spiritual awakening.
  • Classical Christianity, both liberals and conservatives have missed the mark.
  • Only a Biblical reformation can produce a true Christian revival as prescribed in the book of Acts, that records the birth of the New Testament Church.
  • The 1st century Church, its doctrine, attitude, and vision, is the hope of the 21st Century World.

While preaching soon after the infamous attack, September 11, 2001, by Islamists upon the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, I said; "Judgment is coming to America," immediately I was checked by the Holy Spirit, I felt the Lord say to me, "Judgment is already here."


As it was in the days of Noah before the flood, America is eating, drinking, indulging in every type of leisure and pleasure, much of it decadent and ungodly. "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people" (Proverbs 14:34). I remember hearing, as a young preacher in the 1960's, "If God does not judge America, He would have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah." Fifty years later, clearly the 60's were mild in comparison.


How can America continue on this mad spiral? Our dollar is weaker by the day. Our unsustainable national debt has gone from a 250 billion dollar surplus in 1994 to a 17 trillion dollar deficit by 2014. Every notable economist predicts the financial bubble will inevitably burst. Even in Sodom and Gomorrah there is no record of men marrying men, and women marrying women. Decadence prevails in every facet of American life: politics, entertainment, music, TV, Hollywood, and sports.


When the incredible assault occurred on September 11, 2001, there was a momentary turning to God throughout our nation. People prayed and went to church. At that time I remember two of the most prominent preachers in America, saying; "This is the judgment of God, He is trying to get the nation's attention for our sins." Immediately, an outcry arose from the late night TV hosts, the socially liberal crowd, the same bunch that always discredits preachers, churches, and God, saying that it was absurd to connect, in any way, the lifestyle of America with the attacks by terrorist Muslims. Feeling the heat, the two well-known TV preachers backed down. Clearly, the stiff-neckness of the politically-correct crowd was shared by a wider spectrum of America, because across the country, for the most part, the pulpits grew silent regarding the apparent attempt of God to get our attention. America continued to party; in fact, the decadence increased.


In Bible times when judgment came to Israel, one of two things occurred; either they turned to God, and changed, or, they became defensive and hard-hearted; sinning all the more, trusting in their horses, chariots, armor and weaponry. This is what happened in America. We now boast of the best military in the world. Our nation is now much more decadent and less God conscious than it was in 2001. Recently, a well know politician preparing to run for the presidency of the USA, said; that as a young woman, growing up in America, like everyone else, she never envisioned the day would come when there would be same-sex marriage. She continued; like other Americans, she had now grown to approve same-sex marriage. She continued that she had never seen a more dramatic shift in the mindset of the public than she had seen presently with the rapid acceptance of same-sex marriage.


Across America, base carnal behavior is encouraged; permissiveness and boredom with established values have led to experimentation with that which is forbidden; challenging Bible standards that have been the landmarks of every prosperous and blessed culture from the beginning of mankind upon earth until now. There are few voices of caution any longer, even in fundamental/evangelical churches.


The leader of once communist Russia said recently, that his country had tried living without God for 70 years, that now they realize that they need and want God in their culture. He continued that while Russia now protects traditional marriage, have passed laws to forbid desecration of churches, and made profanity and gratuitous sex in their movies illegal; America approves each of these issues. He asks, "who are the pagans now?" Then, he states an observance that should cause every American to stop and think; he says that America's churches have become Sunday circuses. Sadly, in too many cases, he is correct. In America, the majority of churches either chill or thrill their congregants; meaning, dead formalism leaves them cold and unchallenged, while spectacular programs entertains others with an adrenalin high. What we need is a Christian Reformation, a Holy Ghost Revival that stirs the embers of commitment, death to self, a love for the Word of God, Bible teaching and preaching that causes one to take up his cross and follow Jesus, reaching a dimension of faith and works that cause miracles of healing and salvation, emphasizing the hope of eternity with our Lord. That, is the real deal!


A review of Old Testament history shows that when Israel refused chastisement and insisted on going their way, the Lord sent pestilence and heathen armies to wreak judgment upon them. This example is consistent throughout the history of mankind; great nations that became corrupt and self-indulgent, eventually fell victim to attacks, invasions, and assaults by vicious enemies, often their cultural inferiors; who were supercharged with violent purpose to kill and destroy. Rome, the greatest empire of its time, and one of the greats of all time, was overrun by virtually uncivilized wild hoards of aggressors who only came to conquer, and destroy. Rome's columned legal centers, their ornate places of worship, their luxurious homes, and their extravagant places of entertainment, were all put to the torch, pillaged and ruined in days, what had taken centuries to build, and by whom; men in animals skins, living in tents and caves, wielding axes and clubs.


Will America be judged by those who live in tents and caves, following the philosophy of a seventh century madman? It is there for anyone to see: the religious zealots in Iran saying, "...death to America, America's days are numbered." Masked men standing beside dead bodies and burned out tanks in Iraq, boasting that after they destroy Israel and conquer all the Middle East,... Europe and America will be next. They say that Islam will rule the world. America says it can't happen; but, news analysts who know history and current events agree that all that is happening today in Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Afghanistan is the beginning of a worldwide push to spread Islam everywhere by means of violent conquest; using the same methods today that they have used in the past. Clearly, history tells us that great nation after great nation have fallen this way. The Bible prophesies it will happen again!


These five scriptures are revelatory! Remember them at all times.


1... Referring to the descendants of Ishmael; "And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him..." (Genesis 16:12).


2..."Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed..." (Genesis 9:6).


3..."Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes" (Romans 3:15-17).


4... "Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths" (Isaiah 59:7).


5... "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:8).


Subsequent to the unprovoked, 9/11 attack upon innocent Americans, on our home soil; waves of alarms were sounded everywhere. Unfortunately, as the fear subsided and political correctness prevailed; the lessons we should have learned have been forgotten.


Shortly after the 9/11 attack, the TV History channel carried an illustrated documentary reporting that there had once been a prosperous culture, the Berbers, that existed in North Africa, in the seventh century. The History channel showed archaeological remains of their advanced civilization, housing, communities, and general environment wherein the Berbers had lived. The documentary aptly recorded that they dramatically disappeared, not because of disease, climate disaster, economic collapse, nor any such calamity; but, a violent invasion came out of what is now Saudi Arabia, by savage Muslim warriors, led by Muhammad, destroying everything in their sight. Nothing was spared that did not convert to Islam.


Does anyone find it strange, that the Middle East, Asia Minor and North Africa, the home of the birth place of Christianity, has so few Christians today. A true and honest study of history reveals that the Muslims for centuries have slaughtered, without pity those who have not converted to Islam, leaving only small Christian enclaves. Only eternity will reveal the number of martyrs who have given their lives in that region because of the cross and to gain a crown in eternity.


Now, the entire world is Islam's target! In just 10 years the Christian population in Iraq has fallen from 1.5 million to less than 300 thousand. Bethlehem, the birthplace of our Lord Jesus was once 80% Christian, it is now less than 2% Christian. More than 430 Christian churches have been burned in Muslim dominated countries this year. There are eye-witness accounts in Egypt of Christians being crucified. The persecution, even slaughter and mass migration from Islamic areas of the world is the most under-reported, if not unreported, story of our time.


Who was Muhammad? What is the goal of Islam in the world today? What does this mean to America?


Muhammad was born in Mecca, 570 A.D. Shortly after his birth, his mother died, his father had died before his birth, thus, he became an orphan. He was raised primarily by his uncle, for whom he worked as a shepherd. As a young man he worked as a camel driver between Syria and Arabia. Later he established a career managing caravans on behalf of merchants. Thus, Muhammad came into contact with many nationalities and faiths, Jews, Christians, and pagans. At the age of 25, he married a wealthy woman, 15 years his senior. Not lacking for money, he had time to spend in meditation; one day in a cave, he reported that the angel Gabriel came to him, after which he called himself a prophet. Subsequently, he claimed a series of visions that frequently occurred while he meditated in the caves, hills and ravines around Mecca.


Apostle Paul said; "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed" (Galatians 18).


Muhammad came along at a time when Arabs were fighting each other to survive, many living in great poverty and oppression. He spent thirteen years building a spiritual platform; then the remaining ten years of his life as a warrior. It was his military success, accompanied with cruel and ruthless behavior, that cemented his place in history. In a single decade he fought eight major battles, led 18 raids, and planned 38 military operations.


He revolutionized Arabian warfare and mobilized an army motivated by an ideology of holy war (jihad) and martyrdom. But, for his military success, Muhammad would not have gained momentum leading to 1.4 billion followers today. He skillfully merged his brand of spirituality and warfare to establish the religion called Islam. Supposedly, when he started preaching, he was not violent; later, to gain leverage, he began to preach that if anyone gained a victory over the men of Jews, they should kill them. After some acts of violence where his men killed for him, he saw that his strategy was successful and it further empowered him; thus, he became a cold blooded murderer of anyone, Jewish, non-Muslim, whoever stood in his way. This led to the brand of terrorism that has carried forward until today. Jesus taught;"Ye shall know them by their fruits...Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit" (Matthew 7:16, 17).


Consider the fruit of Islam in the world today. When Saddam Hussein, one of the most vile, cruel men who ever lived; responsible for three wars during his evil reign in Iraq; countless executions, whose actions ultimately triggered the turmoil that engulfs the Middle East today; when about to be executed for his crimes, said; "There is no God but Allah, and his messenger is Muhammad."


From the Abu Sayeff in the Philippines, the Boko Haram in East Africa, ISIS in Syria and Iraq, Al Queda throughout the Middle East, the Taliban in Afghanistan, Hamas and Hezbollah in Palestine, the Chechen rebels in South-east Europe, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt; all inciting suicide bombings, kidnappings, mass executions, (even beheadings), bloodshed of all kinds, threatening terrorism worldwide, in our cities, even our airplanes; all are Islamic.


Present Islamic propaganda spins the history of Muhammad as the true prophet of their god (Allah). Who is Allah? The following can be researched by anyone: www.biblebelievers.org.au/moongod.htm As you read the following, keep in mind what President Ronald Reagan said: "Facts are stubborn things."


ALLAH-the Moon God: The Archaeology of the Middle East


The religion of Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of "Allah." The Muslims claim that Allah in pre-Islamic times was the biblical God of the patriarchs, prophets, and apostles. The issue is thus one of continuity. Was "Allah" the biblical God or a pagan god in Arabia during pre-Islamic times? The Muslim claim of continuity is essential to their attempt to convert Jews and Christians for if "Allah" is part of the flow of divine revelation in Scripture, then it is the next step in biblical religion. Thus we should all become Muslims. But, on the other hand, if Allah was a pre-Islamic pagan deity, then its core claim is refuted. Religious claims often fall before the results of hard sciences such as archeology. We can endlessly speculate about the past or go and dig it up and see what the evidence reveals. This is the only way to find out the truth concerning the origins of Allah. As we shall see, the hard evidence demonstrates that the god Allah was a pagan deity. In fact, he was the moon-god who was married to the sun goddesses and the stars were his daughters.


(Author's note: God forbade the worship of the sun, moon, or any of the host of heaven, and He angrily accused Israel of backsliding when they did; "And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded" (Deuteronomy 17:3).


Archaeologists have uncovered temples to the moon-god throughout the Middle East. From the mountains of Turkey to the banks of the Nile, the most wide-spread religion of the ancient world was the worship of the moon-god. In the first literate civilization, the Sumerians have left us thousands of clay tablets in which they described their religious beliefs. The ancient Sumerians worshipped a moon-god who was called many different names. The most popular names were Nanna, Suen, and Asimbabbar. His symbol was the crescent moon. Given the amount of artifacts concerning the worship of this moon-god, it is clear that this was the dominant religion in Sumeria. The cult of the moon-god was the most popular religion throughout ancient Mesopotamia. The Assyrians, Babylonians, and the Akkadians took the word Suen and transformed it into the word Sin as their favorite name for the moon-god. As Prof. Potts pointed out, "Sin is a name essentially Sumerian in origin which had been borrowed by the Semites."


In ancient Syria and Canna, the moon-god Sin was usually represented by the moon in its crescent phase. At times the full moon was placed inside the crescent moon to emphasize all the phases of the moon. The sun-goddess was the wife of in Sin and the stars were their daughters. For example, Istar was a daughter of Sin. Sacrifices to the moon-god are described in the Pas Shamara texts. In the Ugaritic texts, the moon-god was sometimes called Kusuh. In Persia, as well as in Egypt, the moon-god is depicted on wall murals and on the heads of statues. He was the Judge of men and gods. The Old Testament constantly rebuked the worship of the moon-god (Dueteronomy 4:19; 17:3; II Kings 21:3, & 5; 23:5; Jeremiah 8:2; 19:13; Zephaniah 1:5). When Israel fell into idolatry, it was usually the cult of the moon-god.


As a matter of fact, everywhere in the ancient world, the symbol of the crescent moon can be found on seal impressions, pottery, clay tablets, earrings, necklaces, wall murals, etc. In Tell-el-Obeid, a copper calf was found with a crescent moon on its forehead. An idol with the body of a bull and the head of man has a crescent moon inlaid on its forehead with shells. In Ur, the Stele of Ur-Nammu has the crescent symbol placed at the top of the register of gods because the moon-god was the head of the gods. Even bread was baked in the form of a crescent as an act of devotion to the moon-god. The Ur of the Chaldees was so devoted to the moon-god that it was sometimes called Nannar in tablets from that time period.


History proves conclusively that before Islam came into existence, the Sabbeans in Arabia worshipped the moon-god Allah who was married to the sun-goddess. We have also seen that it was a matter of common practice to use the name of the moon-god in personal names in Muhammad's tribe. That Allah was a pagan deity in pre-Islamic times is incontestable. And so we must ask ourselves the question: why was Muhammad's god named after a pagan deity in his own tribe?


It is an undeniable fact that an Allah idol was set up at the Kabah along with all other idols of the time. The pagans prayed towards Mecca and the Kabah because that is where their gods were stationed. It made sense to them to face in the direction of their god and pray since that is where he was. Since the idol of their moon god, Allah, was at Mecca, they prayed towards Mecca.


The moon-god was called al-ilah, the god, which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad's father and uncle had Allah as part of their names. The fact that they were given such names by their parents proves that Allah was the title of the moon-god even in Muhammad's early life.


Muhammad was raised in the religion of the moon-god Allah. But he went one step further than his fellow pagan Arabs. While they believed that Allah the moon-god was the greatest of all gods and the supreme deity in the pantheon of deities, Muhammad decided that Allah was not only the greatest god but the only god.


In effect he said, "Look, you already believe that the moon-god Allah is the greatest of all gods. All I want you to do is accept the idea that he is the only god. I am not taking away the Allah you already worship. I am only taking away his wife and his daughters and all the other gods."


This is seen from the fact that the first point of the Muslim creed is not "Allah is great" but "Allah is the greatest" - he is the greatest among the gods. Why would Muhammad say that Allah is the greatest except in polytheistic (many gods) context? The Arabic word is used to contrast the greater from the lesser.


That this is true is seen from the fact that the pagan Arabs never accused Muhammad of preaching a different Allah than the one they already worshipped. Thus Allah was the moon-god according to the archaeological evidence.


Muhammad thus attempted to have it both ways. To the pagans, he said that he still believed in the moon-god Allah. To the Jews and the Christians he said that Allah was their God, too. But both the Jews and the Christians, who worshipped Yahweh, knew better and they rejected his god Allah as a false god.


Al-kindi, one of the early Christian apologists against Islam, pointed out that Islam and its god Allah did not come from the Bible but from the paganism of the Sabeans. They did not worship the God of the Bible but the moon-god and his daughters al-Ussa, al-Lat, and Manat. (Three Early Christian-Muslim Debates, by N. A. Newman, 1994, pages 357, 413, and 426).


Dr. Newman concludes his study of the early Christian-Muslim debates by stating, "Islam proved itself to be...a separate and antagonistic religion which had sprung up from idolatry" (page 719). Islamic scholar Caesar Farah concluded, "There is no reason, therefore, to accept the idea that Allah passed to the Muslims from the Christians and Jews" (Caesar Farah, Islam: Beliefs and Observances, Barrons, 1987, page 28).


The Arabs worshipped the moon-god as a supreme deity. But that was not biblical monotheism. While the moon-god was greater than all the other gods and goddesses, this was still a polytheistic pantheon of deities. Now that we have the actual idols of the moon-god, it is no longer possible to avoid the fact that Allah was a pagan god in pre-Islamic times.


Is it any wonder that the symbol of Islam is the crescent moon? That a crescent moon sits on top of their mosques and minarets? That a crescent is found on the flags of Islamic nations? That the Muslims fast during the month which begins and ends with appearance of the crescent moon in the sky.


The pagan Arabs (before Muhammad) worshipped the moon-god Allah by praying toward Mecca several times a day; making a pilgrimage to Mecca; running around the temple of the moon-god; throwing stones at the devil; fasting for the month which begins and ends with the crescent moon; giving alms to the poor, etc., (exactly like they do today following Muhammad's religion called Islam).


The Muslim's claim that Allah is the god of the Bible and Islam arose from the religion of the prophets and apostles is refuted by solid, overwhelming archeological evidence. Islam is nothing more than a revival of the ancient moon-god cult. It has taken the symbols, the rites, the ceremonies, and even the name of its god from the ancient pagan religion of the moon-god. As such it is sheer idolatry and must be rejected by all those who follow the Bible. - (End of researched article)


Now, the facts and the plain truth.


When former U.S. President George Bush said, "Allah is the same God that we worship, just the name that Muslims use," he is flat wrong. When Christians call Muslims their brothers because they allegedly believe in one God, they are flat wrong. When prominent American theologians promote a new theology called "Chrislam", the merging of Christianity and Islam, using both the Bible and the Quran in order to further fellowship and unity, they are flat wrong!


The words and violence of Muhammad and the threatening verses in the Quran, attributed to Allah, are smoothed over by moderate Muslims in an attempt to calm the fears of non-Muslims; but, facts are stubborn things. Clearly, history records the atrocities of Muhammad, and an honest study of current events reveals that his disciples continue to wreak bloodshed throughout the world today. Why? The answer is simple; Muhammad and Allah, in the Quran tells them to.


What does the Quran, the alleged book of peace, really say?


Please carefully note these random passages from the Quran, a book that is held as holy among Islamists, who claim to be a religion of peace. One of the most notable signs of the end-time, spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ;
"Take heed that no man deceive you" (Matthew 24:4).


Quran, Sura 2:191.... "And kill them wherever you find them."

Quran, Sura, 2:244... "Then fight in the cause of Allah."

Quran, Sura, 4:104... "And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy."

Quran, Sura, 5:37..... "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and feet cut off in opposite sides."

Quran, Sura, 8:12...... "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them."

Quran, Sura, 8:57....... "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them."

Quran, Sura, 8:65....... "O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight."

Quran, Sura, 9:5......... "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them."

Quran, Sura, 9:123..... "O you who believe, fight those of the unbelievers who are near you and let them find you in hardness (no mercy)."

Quran, Sura, 17:16...... "And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who live easy lives, but they transgress therein, thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction."

Quran, Sura, 47:3-4..... "Those who reject Allah follow vanities. Therefore when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until you have overcome them."

Quran, Sura, 48:29....... "Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers."


Do these samplings from the Quran appear to be messages that describe a religion of peace? Now, compare the Quran to the following verses from the Holy Bible.


Compare the Quran with the Holy Bible


Our Lord Jesus said: "But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also" (Mathew 5:39).


"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you, and persecute you. That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust" (Mathew 5:44, 45).


Luke records the words of Jesus: "But, I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also" (Luke 6:27-29).


The beloved apostle John quoted Jesus, saying: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another" (John 13:34, 35). Having rested his head on the chest of Jesus, John knew the heartbeat of our Lord, thus, he continued; "Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren" (I John 3:16).


The chief apostle, Paul, wrote: "Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another" (Romans 12:10).


Sometimes, brevity is the highest tribute to truth, thus; "I am so blessed to be a Christian."


There are multiple accounts in history that witness to the savage acts of Muhammad and his Islamic hoards. I present only two for examples.


(1)... In 627 A.D., there was the mass killing of the men of Banu Qurayza, a Jewish tribe of Medina; there Muhammad approved the beheading of 600-900 men who surrendered unconditionally after a siege of their city. They were buried in a mass grave in the Medina market place and the women and children sold into slavery.


(2)...In the same year, after the Jewish settlement in Khaybar was overrun by Muslims, the chief of the Jews, Kinana ibn al-Rabi, was tortured by fire upon his chest, and then beheaded; his young wife was then taken by Muhammad to be his concubine.


The fate of those conquered by Islam


Once, the Muslims conquer a land, they impose a tax upon non-Muslims, who are called Dhimmis, who must live under Muslim rule according to the Quran and Hadith. "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor hold forbidden which have been forbidden by Allah and his messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth until they pay the Jizyah (protection tax) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued" (Quran, Sura 9:29).


Under Dhimmitud (the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for non-Muslims) Dhimmis usually are not permitted to carry arms to protect themselves, serve in the army or government, display symbols of their faith, build or repair places of worship. If the conquered do not wish to pay or convert to Islam, their fate may very well be slavery (under which rape is permitted) or death.


Fox News, July 23, 2014: Dr. Sallama Al Khafaji, a member of the Iraq High Commission for Human Rights, reportedly told a local news agency that Islamists forced their way into the home of an Assyrian family in Mosul demanding a "jizya" tax. When the family said they could not produce the money, three jihadist (militant Islamic warriors) raped the mother and daughter in front of the husband and father, who later committed suicide.


IT IS HAPPENING NOW!!!


Please note this startling report taken from Reuters News, one of the world's most respected news outlets, July 18, 2014: In a region where Christians predate Muslims by centuries, over one million Christians have been killed or have had to flee Iraq because of Islamist persecution, during the last eleven years. This is the sad news that Breitbart's National Security Editor and one of the world's leading experts on asymmetric warfare, Dr. Sebastian Gorka reports. Dr. Gorka explained that "in the last 48 hours, ISIS, which is now called the "Islamic State" in Mosul, has painted the letter "N" for Nazarene on the houses of all surviving Christians in the city. ISIS has basically given an ultimatum to all the Christians remaining: "You can either flee or convert to Islam, or we will kill you."


Gorka points out that, over the last 20 years, America has stood up around the world to save Muslims. "Whether it was to save Muslims in Bosnia or the Albanians, Kosovars, and Muslims in Serbia, it is now time for the American people and our representatives to do something for Christians remaining in the Middle East."


The report continued on July 19, 2014: Iraq's Christian leaders have just made a desperate cry for help. Patriarch Louis Raphael I Sako, head of Iraq's Catholic church, has issued an appeal "to all who have a living conscience in Iraq and all the world." Bishop Yousif Habash, from Qaraqosh, a city where Christians still speak Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus. Bishop Habash said, "Christians throughout the Middle East have been targeted, and we are on the verge of being exterminated. The West must step in now and save the Middle East's Christians, or we will be wiped out."


From AFP News, July 19, 2014; Mosul Iraq: For Iraqi Christian Fadi and his young family, it is a lonely wait to see whether they will be executed soon. Along with the rest of the city's estimated 25,000 Christians who had not already fled years of kidnappings, bombings and shootings, Sunni militants gave 36 year old Fadi, his wife and son until Saturday to convert to Islam, pay a tax, leave the city, or die. I'm staying. I already feel dead," Fadi, a teacher, told AFP by telephone moments before the deadline ran out.


On Friday, Mosul's mosques called through loudspeakers for Christians to leave, after centuries of being part of the once cosmopolitan city's social fabric. Fadi said he could not afford to flee and argued that the prospects of those who did were hardly better. Islamic State militants robbed departing Christians of their belongings, he said, leaving them to face destitution in grim camps for the displaced. "They were stopped by members of the Islamic State, who took everything they had. Mobile phones, money, jewelry," he said, speaking of the fate of some 25 families who had recently fled. "When my cousin and friends, from three families, tried to plead with them, they took their cars. They even took wedding rings from women fleeing the city at checkpoints. "


Ahlam, a 34 year old mother of two boys, and her husband carried their children on their shoulders on their long march out of Mosul. She described an exodus of hundreds of Christians walking on foot in Iraq's searing summer heat, the elderly and the disabled among them. "We first reached our destination in a state of exhaustion. We hadn't had anything to eat or drink for a whole day," she said. "I left my home in Mosul, that my family had built decades ago. And it was taken away in an instant," Ahlam said with tears in her eyes. "Everything is gone, all of our memories. Our home has become the property of the Islamic State."


The Islamic State claims its goal is to return the lands they conquer to a state approximating that of early Islam, in which Jews and Christians who did not convert had to pay a "jizya" a tribute to their Muslim rulers. "From one old woman they took $15,000. She asked for just $100 of it so she could reach a safe city. They told her that these are the funds of the Islamic State, and we cannot give it to you," Fadi said.


Robbed of their cars and cash, many Christians were forced to walk to safety. Some of Mosul's Christians might be able to afford to pay the jizya, but they appear unwilling to take their chances living under the thumb of rulers notorious for executing and crucifying their opponents.


In a statement issued by the Islamic State last week which detailed the ultimatum for Mosul's Christians, there will be nothing left for those who do not comply "but the sword."


News item, BBC (British Broadcasting Company), July 26, 2014: The vicar of the only Anglican church in Iraq has warned the end for Christians in the country appears "very near" as he appealed for help after a deadline set by Islamic conquerors to convert or be killed. The Islamists warned that those who did not leave or convert would "receive the sword". Rev. Andrew White, bishop of Baghdad told BBC Radio 4 Today, desperate Christians were trapped in the desert or on the streets with nowhere to go. "They are so desperate, our people are disappearing," he said. "We have had people massacred, their heads chopped off. Are we seeing the end of Christianity? We are committed come what may. We will keep going to the end, but it looks as though the end could be very near."


Fox News, August 1, 2014: In June, Islamic State posted a video of a public execution in the main square of Manjib, near the Syrian city of Aleppo. It showed two men being executed and then crucified before a large group of people, including children, who cheered and shouted "Allahu Akbar (God is great).


CNN, August 7, 2014: "If you are following news about the Islamic State, you might think you've mistakenly clicked onto an historical story about barbarians from a millennia ago. In a matter of months, the group has seized territory in both Syria and Iraq and declared an Islamic caliphate, celebrating its own shocking slaughter along the way. In one day they killed more than two thousand in Sinjar. In Syria, the group hoisted some of their victims heads on poles. One of the latest videos of the savagery shows a Christian man forced to his knees at gunpoint by masked militants and made to "convert" to Islam. Then, the group beheads him."


The Telegraph, August 7, 2014: Islamic State, have occupied churches in Iraq, removing crosses and destroying manuscripts. They have caused thousands to flee with nothing but the clothes on their back or be killed. Now, trapped without food, water or medical care in summer heat, thousands are in desperate need. It is already too late to save dozens of children who have died of thirst."


Mail Online News, August 10, 2014: "When the terrified residents looked out of their windows, they saw that Kosho, their traditional walled village in the mountains of northern Iraq, had been surrounded by militant Muslims. More than 200 militants had besieged the village. Their leader offered them a chance to save their lives. 'He told us that either we become Muslims or they would kill us all,' said Falah, mayor of the village. It is feared an entire village of 2,500 innocent people might be slaughtered in cold blood. This is thought to be the first time these blood-drenched fanatics who delight in boasting of their barbarism and posting sickening murder videos on social media, have threatened to wipe out an entire village."


ABC New, August 15, 2014: "The photo showed a hand holding up an image of the Islamic State flag in front of the White House. It was tweeted on August 9th with the accompanying message: 'We are in your state, we are in your cities, we are in your streets. We are coming for you.' Another photo in front of the White House showed a note written in Arabic, saying; 'Soldiers of Allah will pass from here soon'."

Reuters News, August 19, 2014: "Islamic State message to America; 'We will drown all of you in blood'."


Wake up America! What is happening throughout the world today is exactly what the Quran teaches. It is exactly how Muhammad began the Islamic movement in the seventh century, an example for his followers ever since. It is exactly how Islam has spread around the world. All one has to do is read history. And, it has already come to America: (1) September 11,2001, thousands died as a result of the attacks upon the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon, and the failed attempt to fly a plane into either the White House or the U.S. Capitol building, thwarted only by the brave passengers aboard, causing it to crash in Pennsylvania before the Muslims could complete their suicide mission. (2) The vicious murders of 13 Army personnel, and wounding many others, at Fort Hood, Texas, by a professed Soldier of Allah, shouting "Allahu Akbar". (3) The assassination of an Army recruiter by a Muslim extremist at a recruiting station in Arkansas.


These current gross atrocities and irrefutable facts from history are conveniently overlooked by the politically correct crowd who unwittingly fulfill the prophecy of Jesus, (See Matthew 24:38) that in the last days they would be eating and drinking, indulging in the pleasures of life while Satan subtly places a strangle hold upon them, with the sure Judgment of God waiting. They justify their complacency, believing that only the fanatical fringe of Islam commits these deplorable acts: that they are outnumbered by moderate, peace-loving Muslims, therefore wrongfully concluding that Islam is not a threat. Indeed, there are moderate Muslims, who enjoy the freedoms, benefits, and prosperity of western-styled democracies. But, in their heart of hearts, at the end of the day, they believe what the Quran teaches, and are willing to let the fanatics do their dirty work; otherwise, why is there no outcry, no protest, by the moderate Muslims against the savagery of the terrorists?

These facts are irrefutable; wealthy Muslims, even those allegedly moderate Muslims, many support the terrorists financially, their shared goal being a Caliphate, an Islamic dominated world under sharia law. If they were truly peace-loving, the wealthy, moderate Muslims would be building hospitals, infrastructure, roads, housing, digging water wells, starting businesses, and creating jobs for the millions of poor among them. Instead, they invest in conventional weapons and ammunition, working feverishly to develop weapons of mass destruction, building elaborate multi-million dollar tunnels to invade and overthrow Israel, admittedly to go house to house killing every Jew. Yes, they threaten the world, and yes, they have already struck America, and they plan to again.


Why don't more Americans, on every level, take seriously, a terrorist Islamic leader who boasts, that one day Islam will raise the banner of sharia law over the White House in Washington, D.C.? It is noteworthy that when the murderous leader of the Islamic State, now sweeping throughout Iraq and Syria, leaving a path strewn with mass executions, even beheading children, burning churches, rape, and pillage, was prematurely released from an Iraq prison after only four years for his previous terrorism; said he, to his American captors, "I will see you guys in New York."


Additional facts about Muhammad


It is well documented that Muhammad suffered from seizures, causing many to believe, (and even himself at one point), that he was demon possessed. He loved violent warfare, even naming his weapons of death and destruction. Three swords he took from a Jewish settlement he banished in Quaynuya, in 624 A.D., he called, "Pluck Out, Very Sharp, and Death". Two others he named, "Sharp" and "That is wont to sink" (presumably into human flesh). He called himself the "obliterator". Another time he called himself the "The prophet who laughs when he slits the throats of the infidels."


Another revealing story, recorded in the Islamic Hadith: A woman came to Muhammad asking how to be forgiven for her sin, confessing that she was pregnant as a result of her act of fornication. Muhammad told her to wait until she had given birth and weaned the child. When the day arrived for the child to take solid food, Muhammad handed the child to the community and ordered the woman to be stoned, (found in Muslim, no. 4206)


Please compare the harshness of Muhammad to that recorded in the New Testament, John 8:1-11. The account is given of a woman brought to Jesus who had been taken in the very act of adultery. Her accusers reminded him of the severity of the Old Testament law; but, thank God for grace; Jesus admonished those angry men, that the one with no sin, should cast the first stone; of course there were no takers. Then, our beloved Lord turned to the woman and said that he would not condemn her to death, "Go and sin no more." What wisdom, to remind the accusers of their own sinfulness, making them aware that they had no right to judge. What mercy, to refuse to condemn the woman to death, but, give her a chance to repent and to live. What an example to her accusers, that they too should seek forgiveness, and sin no more, and live. No wonder, the prophet Isaiah announced him as, "Wonderful, and the Prince of Peace" (see Isaiah 9:6).


Muhammad had multiple wives (12) after his first wife died; one wife (Aisha) was only 9 years old, and several he took after killing their husbands. For centuries, scholars and prominent leaders have called Muhammad a mass-murderer and pedophile. Strangely, it is only a recent phenomenon when the compromised, ill-informed, willfully deceived politically-correct crowd promotes the ideology that Islam is a religion of peace, and that we have nothing to fear from it. They would scrub and rewrite history, conveniently ignoring the lessons of the past; thus, making it more than possible that America suffer the same fate as those in other times and other places, under Islamic domination. America, wake up! It is an indisputable truth, supported by history, that this nation was founded upon the Judea-Christian ethic. "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord..." (Psalm 33;12). Come Home America!


The noted Protestant reformer, Martin Luther, said; "Muhammad is a devil, the firstborn of Satan." In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI caused a social-media firestorm when he quoted the Byzantine emperor, Manuel II Paleologus, who in 1391 A.D. said; "Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."


With such a mountain of evidence available: the undeniable bloody history of Muhammad and Islam; the actual words of the Quran; the countless events of cruelty and blood-letting that is taking place before our eyes today, in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, and even in the USA; is anyone surprised at the present terrorism, bombings, beheadings; the wholesale slaughter of innocents, worldwide? Clearly, the blueprint is there in the acts of Muhammad and the commandments in the Quran.


What will it take for the world to wake up?


The world is horrified at the pictures coming out of Iraq of more than 1700 men captured by Islamist militants, forcing them to lie face down on the ground, hundreds at a time, hands tied behind their backs, and shot; their blood spreading over the sand. We are sickened by the pictures of 11 old men in Afghanistan, whose fingers were chopped off by Islamists for voting. We have seen stacks of bodies of men in Kenya, who while watching the World Cup Soccer games; minibuses of Islamic militants poured into their village, shooting and hacking to death any non-Muslim they could find, then going door to door killing everyone who said they were Christian.


We have heard the accounts of those on location, who report that in the Iraqi cities captured by militant Islamists, that lining the streets are the heads of their hapless victims. Civilized people everywhere can hardly believe that a lady, a physician, waited to be executed after she gave birth to her baby and weaned it, before being given 100 lashes and then hung by her neck until dead. Her crime? She lived in a country under Sharia law, where the penalty for a Muslim converting to Christianity is death.


A very basic study of Muhammad and Islam, considering the facts therein, it is apparent that Muhammad borrowed bits and pieces from several religions in an attempt to legitimize and fashion Islam; then used violence to suppress resistance and terrorize people into compliance. He took from the Old Testament, harsh penalties for sin, without regarding the context and allowing for forgiveness and mercy; the Old Testament Prophet/King David said of our God: "Great are thy tender mercies, O Lord: quicken me according to thy judgments....Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O Lord, according to thy lovingkindness" (Psalms 119:156 & 159).


The Quran even quotes the New Testament, saying that Jesus was born of a virgin. From the Quran, Sura 3:42, it explains how Mary conceived Jesus; "Behold the angels said: 'O Mary! God hath chosen thee and purified thee---chosen thee above the women of all nations.'" The Quran describes how she was chosen and purified, Sura 3:43; "O Mary! Worship thy Lord devoutly; prostrate thyself and bow down (in prayer) with those who bow down." Note the following dramatic declaration from the Quran, Sura 3:45, 46; "Behold the Angels said: O Mary! God giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: His name will be Christ Jesus, The son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and (the Company) of those nearest to God, He shall speak to the people in Childhood and in maturity, and He shall be (of the Company) of the righteous." Mary's reply, according to the Quran, Sura 3:47; "'O my Lord! How shall I Have a son when no man has touched me? The angel replied, Even so: God createth what He willeth: When He hath decreed a Plan, He but saith to it, Be, and it is!"


Yet Muslims, who will fight, die, and kill for the Quran, conveniently ignore the Quran when it does not suit their purpose. Regardless of what their own Quran says about the birth of Jesus, (obviously borrowing from the New Testament) the Muslims say that He is not the Son of God. If, according to their holy book, he was born of a virgin,... who is His father?


Again, borrowing from the New Testament, the Quran records; Sura. 4:157, 158; "We killed Jesus Christ, the Son of Mary the Apostle of God; But they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for a surety they killed him not. Nay God raised him up unto himself: and God is exalted in power, wise." Note, that their Quran, plainly borrowing from the New Testament, alludes to the miraculous resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Even the Quran does not attribute a supernatural resurrection to Muhammad, the alleged superior prophet.


Muhammad is buried in the Al Masjid al-Nabaw (Mosque of the Prophet) in the city of Medina in Saudi Arabia. Muhammad's grave lies within the confines of what used to be his and his wife Alisha's house, (his nine year old bride). Muhammad's grave itself cannot be seen as the area is cordoned off by a gold mesh and black curtains. As per Islamic tradition the grave itself is not imbellished or decorated and it is two cubits high. The grave is marked by an austere green dome above it, built by the Ottoman Turks, and was earlier white in color.


I have been to Jerusalem eight times and each time I have visited the garden tomb where the body of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ laid for three days, it is empty. He is not there!


Islamic Terror in the USA


America was shocked in 2009 when 13 U.S. Army personnel were mercilessly gunned down and murdered on their own base, Fort Hood, Texas. Adding to our dismay was the fact that the shooter was a U.S. Army officer, a major, and a psychiatrist at that. How could this be? So many slaughtered on their own base, by an officer? The answer is understanding the man, the shooter. Forget about the politically-correct crowd's constant harping about the unfair matter of racial profiling and Islamaphobia.


Major Nidal Malik Hasan, was the son of an immigrant Palestinian family, born in the USA. His parents chose to give him the name, Nidal; the name means struggle. Hasan was not an ordinary homicidal "nut"; he had deliberately chosen to be part of Islamic Jihad, (holy war). In fact, on his business cards, along-side his name was SOA, which stood for Soldier of Allah. It is the strategy of the Jihadist to spread terror and murder around the globe to accomplish the same ends as their prophet Muhammad. When Hasan went on his shooting rampage, killing 13, and wounding more, he cried, "Allahu Akbar!" The war-cry of Islamists worldwide, meaning, "God is great."


Jacob Thomas, an expert on the history of Islam, points out; "All Muslims carry in their cultural and religious baggage a strong exclusivist belief that they are the guardians of Allah's mission and message for all mankind. Danger is on the horizon when this belief becomes extreme and radicalized in certain Muslims. For such persons, this exclusivism may lie dormant in their consciousness until commission of terrorist acts. A Muslim man's journey starts in earnest when he begins attending mosques led by fiery and radical Imams. Such Imams harangue worshippers during the Friday worship services with messages filled with invectives against the Kuffar, all non-Muslims who do not submit to Islam fit into this hated category.


Even the most 'moderate' Muslim, attending this type of Friday propagandistic services week after week and month after month, would be made susceptible to forming attitudes and a mindset extremely critical of all non-Muslims that could eventually wreak havoc in various ways, including terror attacks. The continuous virulence of such an Imam's sermons, coupled no doubt with copious quotations from the Quran and the Hadiths backing up such rants, would inevitably trigger in the psyche of a believer a dangerous urge to do something 'fi Sabeel Allah' (in the pathway of Allah). As recent history has proven, Muhammad Atta (who led the 9/11 hijackers who attacked the twin towers and the Pentagon) and his vicious cohorts certainly gleaned hatred from such instruction and perpetrated the horror of 9/11.


Research into Muhammad Atta's background is revealing. Testimony from his German professor at Hamburg University notes that Atta had been a normal student doing excellent work in his chosen field. His thesis was in regard to "Urban Renewal," a much needed work in his native Egypt. What radicalized an otherwise intellectually brilliant student who had so much to offer his native country? One answer is certainly his mosque attendance while a student in Hamburg. He chose to worship at the Jerusalem Mosque notoriously famous for being led by a fiery Imam who never ceased hurling curses and imprecations at the infidels. I can only conclude that Atta's conscious and subconscious mind became saturated with that fire and brimstone preaching of the radical cleric. He now had justification from his spiritual leader to go on a jihad and do something great for Allah. His aim became to murder as many infidels as possible.


How influential such teachings from radical mosques and Imams were in the life of Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood terrorist, is yet to be determined." - (End of Jacob Thomas's article).


America is under Judgment!


America is under Judgment, now! The spirit of anti-Christ is already working. How else can one explain the dramatic increase of senseless violence; mothers willfully drowning their children; a father purposely allowing his child to suffocate in an enclosed car in summertime; our schools and public gathering places becoming shooting galleries. The present violence rivals the days of Noah. Of Noah's day, the Bible records; "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually" (Genesis 6:5). Jesus said; "But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be" (Matthew 24:37).


Same sex marriage, homosexuality, is now common-place across the land."Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot... the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day that the Son of man is revealed" (Luke 17:28,29,30). "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire" (Jude 7). Surely, these are the "beginning of sorrows" that Jesus spoke of, (see Matthew 24:8).


Our nation is drowning in unsustainable debt. Extreme weather everywhere; Bible prophecy predicted a time when all creation would groan. Apostle Paul, speaking of the end-time, said; "For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now" (Romans 8:22). America now endures its longest wars, endless conflicts, costing precious blood and treasure with nothing to show for them. We are engaged in a futile fight with enemies led by a blood-thirsty philosophy founded by a false prophet, preaching allegiance to a pagan god he borrowed from a pantheon of false religions from the darkest of primitive times. We sit by helplessly as Christian children in Africa are kidnapped by sneering Islamists who taunt the parents, saying they will sell the children into slavery. Our government is confused, our wise men in Washington, D.C. stand befuddled. Our military, the most technologically advanced in world history, is stale-mated, unable to subdue primitive masked warriors, who live in tents and caves.


It is obvious, America is under judgment and what does the nightly news report? The news media rushes to report the multi-million dollar contract of an athlete; giving same-sex marriage partners rights to be buried in veterans cemeteries; the antics of a spoiled teen idol; the bizarre behavior of an out of control, addicted actress; even reporting in prime-time that a soccer player bit another in a World Cup game; and the controversy surrounding the offensive name of a professional football team. All this, while the world, even our beloved America, deteriorates before our eyes, racing further into judgment, day by day. Yes, judgment is here, even now the "beginning of sorrows". Ignoring it won't make it go away!


The American-Christian churches can no longer continue their programs that either freeze their congregants with cold liturgies, or entertains them with Sunday Circuses! Our God is stirring the souls of watchmen who will climb upon the wall, put the trumpet to their mouths and sound the alarm. It will be disastrous for the ministry and the laity to sit by idly while America and the world goes to hell.


"But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand" (Ezekiel 33:6).


Note what the 18th century revivalist, John Wesley, had to say about a careless ministry, even in his day. "A worldly clergyman is a fool above all fools, a madman above all madmen! Such vile, infamous wretches as these are the real 'reason for the contempt for the clergy. Indolent clergymen, pleasure-taking clergymen, money-loving clergymen, praise-loving clergymen, preferment-seeking clergymen-these are the wretches that cause clergymen in general to be condemned. Worldly clergymen are the pest of the Christian world, the grand nuisance of mankind, a stink in the nostrils of God! Such as these were they who made St. Chrysostom say, 'Hell is paved with the souls of Christian priests'."


Our Lord Jesus said; "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work" (John 9:4). Do you believe that Jesus is the way, the light and the truth? Indeed He spoke truth because He is the Truth, and there will come a time when work must be done quickly, before the night (total anti-Christ control) comes, causing an environment where no man can work! A very simple, yet honest appraisal of our age, clearly reveals that end-time Bible prophecy fits our day like a glove. That time is now! Today the front pages of the newspaper read like the last pages of the Bible.


It is time to preach, teach, and declare this Truth that we hold so dear, to every creature, abroad and at home. Our Lord Jesus did not suggest, he commanded: "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15). We must saturate our culture with the Gospel. Apostle Paul said; "...I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some" (I Corinthians 9:22). Over 30 years ago there was a popular choir-song, saying; "It is time to carry the water to the desert". It is not too late!


Jesus promised that the very gates of hell would not prevail against the last-day Church, built upon the rock, the sure foundation, knowing Him, worshipping in spirit and truth, empowered to do exploits, meeting the needs of people, walking in Christ-like love, declaring to them the message of salvation, healing and restoration. Regardless of the culture, region, race, gender, national identity; the needs of mankind are the same, only the Gospel of Christ, in its purest presentation fulfills the truest desire of every soul.


"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him" (John 4:23). The truth, taught by Christ, and preached by the Apostles, is the rock upon which the Church is built. "And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone" (Ephesians 2:20). "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost" (II Corinthians 4:3). Our Lord Jesus said; "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3).


David hated every false way, (see Psalm 119:104). Know the truth, study it, preach it with the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is so plain that it does not take a genius to figure it out. The Holy Ghost does more than break the yoke of spiritual bondage, it destroys the yoke! Why is it that people can't figure this out? Why is it that alleged wise men split hairs and endlessly debate scriptures; being only hearers of the Word, never doers? "But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only..." (James 1:22). It is because Satan has deceived them, or they are blinded by religious pride, hoping to gain prestige and feed their ego because of their special interpretation of Holy Scripture. Apostle Peter, the man with the keys, solved the issue, saying; "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation" (II Peter 1:20). The New Birth, proclaimed in the Gospel of Christ, clearly articulated by Jesus and the Apostles; is simply a matter of who will believe it and obey it.


Three years ago, Fox TV news carried an hour long evening special reporting the incredible story of the conversion to Christianity from Islam by the son of the founder of Hamas, one the most violent Islamic movements in the world. The program detailed the story of the young Muslim who was witnessed to by a Christian tourist on the streets of the Arab section of old Jerusalem. He then attended a Bible study and forthright gave his heart to Jesus. Subsequently, he became a passionate witness for Christ, even witnessing to his father, the founder of Hamas, who is serving a life-time prison sentence in Israel for terrorism. He said in secret, his father hearing his testimony, wept; furthermore, the young man said that throughout the Arab world there is increasing disgust for violent Islam, and a hunger for something spiritual that until now has eluded them. He continued, saying that it was only fear that was stopping many from converting from Islam. The Fox documentary concluded with the young man saying that he knew his life was in danger; but, he must be a witness for Christ to Muslims who desire truth; that he believed an awakening was coming, and was willing to die for the Gospel.


Those who would kill us, we must love them. Jesus said; "...forgive them; for they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34). And, we must find means to declare the Gospel to them.


"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds" (II Corinthians 10:4). The spirit of anti-Christ is the most formidable stronghold that the Church has ever faced. Christ will prevail over anti-Christ; the name, Jesus, is greater than the number, 666; the Lamb will conquer the Beast.


In Revelation, the final book in the Bible, our Lord Jesus states the conclusion of the matter, saying; "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne..." (Revelation 3:21).


In Christ, in His Church, our destiny is mightier than our history; and the power within us is greater than the challenge before us. We win!
