While many in this country with a left-leaning political slant bemoan the security threats to this nation–placing unwarranted suspicion at the feet of Evangelical Christians, home educators, talk radio, gun owners, war vets, etc.–they remain strangely (and suspiciously) silent regarding the only real threat–the same threat that keeps spewing its venomous hate speech day after day, week after week, year after year: Islam.
While this nation slumbers, those who seek it’s demise are wide awake and ever planning . . . planning on murdering you, your children, your family, and friends. Yet half of our nation will continue to see threats where they don’t exist while ignoring the real threat breathing down our necks, and the other half of our nation is simply too busy to care–continuing to entertain themselves into a coma.
Everyone needs to watch this video clip to understand what’s coming from the “Religion of Peace.” This is especially enlightening when you consider that this video was made long before the Quran-burning controversy arose.
While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. – 1 Thessalonians 5:3
I’m praying that God will lead more Muslims and Americans “Church-ians” to know Him.
Considering the identity of Mystery Babylon, the slumbering was actually prophesied thousands of years ago.
Isaiah 47:11 Therefore evil shall come upon you; You shall not know from where it arises. And trouble shall fall upon you; You will not be able to put it off. And desolation shall come upon you suddenly, Which you shall not know.
When you observe how the media has the sheeple in the US believing that islam is a “religion of peace”, it’s easy to understand why “You shall not know from where it arises.”.
I also believe the whole counsel of God clearly identifies 2 of the ten horns in Revelation.
Jeremiah 50:3 For out of the north a nation comes up against her, Which shall make her land desolate, And no one shall dwell therein. They shall move, they shall depart, Both man and beast.
Jeremiah 50:9 For behold, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon An assembly of great nations from the north country, And they shall array themselves against her; From there she shall be captured. Their arrows shall be like those of an expert warrior; None shall return in vain.
There is only one “north country” in the world today that has made the transition from a nation to an assembly of great nations in our lifetimes. The U.S.S.R. to Russia.
Jeremiah 50:14 “Put yourselves in array against Babylon all around, All you who bend the bow; Shoot at her, spare no arrows, For she has sinned against the Lord.
Jeremiah 51:11 Make the arrows bright! Gather the shields! The Lord has raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes. For His plan is against Babylon to destroy it, Because it is the vengeance of the Lord, The vengeance for His temple.
“The Medes, (Greek ??d??, from an Old Persian Madai; Middle Persian Mah, Assyrian Madayu, modern Med or Medya or; New Persian) were an ancient Iranian people who lived in the northwestern portions of present-day Iran.”
So what is the Biblical response to such a threat? Maybe to burn their scriptures? No, it is to pray for them and to present them with the Law of God and the good news of Christ’s atonement on the Cross. In all the “christian-vs-muslim” talk this week, I have seen very few people who are willing to try reaching the islamic people with the true Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Bang on CS, this one viewpoint has been missed by so many so called Christians on many website comment forums. It’s all dominance/conquering talk. Sign of the times with most ministries teaching self empowerment and self deification, it’s no wonder.
I can’t – and don’t pretend to – speak for Pilgrim as he’s more than capable of speaking for himself, but I took the article as being a commentary on the state of the nation, not the church. In fact Pilgrim alludes to the progressive left’s collective and incessant hand-wringing over their fevered high-noon fantasies about an eminent coup d’etat by redneck militia members – which never materializes – when in fact the real threat continues to blow things up, including buildings, planes, trains, automobiles, and people, all in the name of their false god, and his false prophet.
One of the duties of human government as instituted by God is to bear the sword (Romans 13). This is certainly applicable to matters of national defense as well as matters of internal domestic civil/criminal law. In God’s design human governments are permitted, and even duty bound, to bear the sword to protect their citizenry from aggressors, both foreign and domestic. What the Pilgrim succinctly points out is that our country is presently either unable, or unwilling, to recognize and act upon the obvious national security threat posed by the religio-political system of world domination known as Islam. Obviously this fallen world system lies in the lap of Satan, and God is in control upon His glorious throne working all things according to the counsel of His most holy and perfect will, yet the simple fact remains; the house of Islam (Dar al-Islam) has been at war with the rest of the world (Dar al-Harb) for the last 1400 years or so with only one goal in mind – ultimate global conquest in the name of Allah. Infidels (“kafirs”) will convert, be killed, or suffer dhimmitude, and this group includes their MINO (Muslim-In-Name-Only) cultural hangers-on as well.
How the non-Muslim nations respond to this stark reality is yet to be seen, but there can really only be two possible options: 1) submit and be conquered, or 2) destroy the enemy. Yet this is the very point where things become so interesting and complex. Our own nation was founded upon certain principles that were intended to prevent a “state-church” from gaining dominance. I’m not referring to the so-called “separation of church and state”, but rather to the protections afforded to the church to protect it from the state, not vice-versa. And mind you that I’m not waxing nostalgic for the Crusades, but at that time the state-church mixture allowed for, and even lent itself, to the concept of a “Holy War” where the state-church took up arms under the banner of the state-church, for religio-political purposes. Today our more “modern” and “enlightened” societies in both the far East and the West are more or less secular, materialistic, naturalistic, and de-facto atheistic. The political leaders of these nations have no stomach for a “Holy War”, and they can’t even properly view Islam for what it actually is, a remnant of the archaic, feudal, tribal theocratic religio-political state, not to mention a destructive and Satanic religion supernaturally empowered by demons.
But on the other hand Islam has a long memory. Speaking broadly Dar al-Islam is like a perverse and extremely dangerous version of the Hatfields and the McCoys where they can never forget any real or perceived slight, insult, or humiliation, no matter how small, because it shames Allah; and like a real-world, maliciously evil, and malevolent version of “Brain” from “Pinky and the Brain”, every day is the same for far too many of them.
Pinky: “What are we going to do tomorrow, Brain?” Brain: “The same thing we do every day Pinky, try to take over the world.
Should believers pray for the Muslims and reach out to them with the truth in love? Absolutely.
Should believers burn their false holy book and add a stumbling block in addition to the stumbling block inherent within the Gospel itself? I see no Biblical warrant for it.
And if you’ve not seen many people willing to reach out to Muslims with the Gospel then you should check out Dr. James White at Alpha and Omega Ministries, David Wood and Nabeel Qureshi at Acts 17, and Answering Islam for some encouragement.
Well said, CD.
We have no muslims where I’m from so few witnessing opportunities present themselves.
Rest assured they would hear the truth from me.
Some day in the future, we will all get the chance to witness to muslims….while waiting in line to get beheaded.
It would seem that many end time students have gotten it wrong about the identity of the beast, the eighth king of Revelation 17.
A good look around the world reveals only one group that is keen to behead prople as shown in the picture above.
The last western nation to behead people was France run by the “free”masons behind the scenes.
In fact, beheading is the “free”masons “official” method of execution.
The only other group that advocates beheading as a form of execution are Talmudists looking to enforce Noahide laws on Gentiles.
