As "Islamic" doctrines spread, suicide bombers and brutal terrorism follows...Islam means "submission" a full surrender of one's life, not merely for an hour or two on Sunday. Muslims who leave their religion are under a death sentence. Islam offers a sense of power and absolutism that Christians once had but have now compromised.
Future homegrown Jihadists right now being bred in US prisonsAs Fox News reports in this article, prisons are recruiting grounds and those who feel oppressed freely join. Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, reaching into the walls of U.S. prisons and in some cases converting former long time violent gang members who are serving time now into loyal Muslims with a cause... that cause is to destroy the U.S. government and instill a Sharia government.
Two branches of Islam: Sunni and ShiaThere are two main branches of Islam: the Sunni and the Shia. Both differ in many ways but still adhere to the Quran and Sharia Law. In today's geopolitical world ISIS represents a violent Sunni view of Islam and Iran presents a well-financed, well-organized and technologically savvy Shia Islamic nation.
In their goals of bringing about a world conquest of Islam, The Mahdi is the key. This is the Last Imam and according to Islamic doctrine, he will appear after a worldwide catastrophe occurs and the world looks for a leader. This is important to understand ...
Why is this important? The war against terrorists...When it comes to surviving in a world with growing terrorism, and explaining to your family, children, and neighbors why Radical Islam will send suicide bombers into a concert headlined by a famous U.S. popstar and gladly blow children to bits, knowing the doctrine of Islam helps us understand why this is going to get worse.
Islam awaits the Mahdi and seeks death for the InfidelsMass media ignores the Mahdi for fear of being accused of "Islamophobia". Now this is where things get interesting, when trying to piece together how all this "Islamic" insanity feeds into the modern world we live in today.
Over here in the West, where we have a lot more Christians than Muslims currently, millions of Christians are also waiting for specific figures to make their appearance. One, according to the Bible, is Christ, who returns in the last days to claim the earth as God's and free the world from the chains of sin, sickness, and death. But before Christ returns, according to the Bible, the Anti-Christ is let loose on earth during the greatest time of brutality and evil the world has yet seen. Which brings us to the point of this article... Islam's Mahdi.
The Mahdi and the Anti-Christ ... one and the same?The Mahdi fits the role of Anti-Christ in many ways. No Christian or Jew can accept Islam as an equal. The almost overwhelming pluralistic, anti-Biblical movements in government and the mass media have opened up the way for the advance of Islam. Brutal Sharia Law is now included in the legal systems of many nations. Islam is the world's fastest growing religion. In time, Europe will be a Muslim region, completing the attempts at conquest that began in the 700's.
Gog, Magog and the Anti-Christ ... will it happen?Much has been written about the end times, the Apocalypse and the Anti-Christ. Movies, books and television shows explore who this figure is, his origins and scenarios and timetables. The Kings of Gog and Magog are listed in Ezekiel and Revelation as the principal forces which wage the last war against Israel and catapult the world into the arrival of the Anti-Christ. But who is the best candidate for the Anti-Christ and what to expect?
Gog and Magog are referred to in prophecy in Ezekiel and Revelation. In Revelation, they lead the last war after the 1,000 year reign of the returned Messiah (Christ) when God allows one last test of His faithful. Much speculation has been made and numerous authors place Russia and Iran in the roles of these nations. Gog and Magog referring to the nations of the world who unite against Israel (and the Church). The recent votes by UNESCO and too numerous votes against Israel in the General Assembly show how many nations oppose Israel and its right to exist.
The late Paul Boyer (Boyer, Paul. 1992. When Time Shall Be No More: Prophecy belief in modern American culture. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press.) quotes Governor Ronald Reagan's citing of the Prophet Ezekiel's foretelling of the coming attack of the nations against Israel and then Soviet Russia's role in it.
What Ronald Reagen believed about RussiaWe all remember Ronald Reagan as one of America's most sincere and respected Presidents; coincidentally he was also a Christian and if you or I had the honor of being one of his close friends, he of course would have gladly discussed his faith, Bible beliefs, and how he viewed world politics and where he thought the world was going, as the Bible tells us in teachings going back 2000 years and even before that. It is one reason Reagen took the Cold War as seriously as he did.
Reagen openly discoursed on Bible prophecySpeaking to members of the California State Legislature at a dinner in 1971, Governor Reagan said, "Ezekiel tells us that Gog, the nation that will lead all of the other powers of darkness against Israel, will come out of the north. Biblical scholars have been saying for generations that Gog must be Russia. What other powerful nation is to the north of Israel? None. But it didn't seem to make sense before the Russian revolution, when Russia was a Christian country. Now it does, now that Russia has become Communistic and atheistic, now that Russia has set itself against God. Now it fits the description of Gog perfectly."
Russia, Iran and TurkeyThe international scene today is beyond complicated. Vladimir Putin, President of Russia is a key figure in the tense and dangerous situation. His aggressive, nationalistic movements in re-assembling the states of the former Soviet Union into a greater Russian state have surprised and unsettled the United States and NATO. Russian's alliances with Islamic Syria, Iran and China point to a series of movements that could include an attack on Israel that would draw the United States into a war. This catastrophe would make the scene for the arrival of The Apocalyptic Mahdi complete.
Recent events in the Middle East, especially the civil war in Syria and the violent rise of ISIS have moved Russia into military action on behalf of the Assad Government. The strange relationships of nominally Christian Russia, Muslim Iran and Turkey, a nation trying to re-establish the Ottoman Empire are confusing to say the least. Each nation is playing its own game, promoting its own goals and in Turkey's situation, both sides of the fence. Turkey was once the most populous part of the early Christian world. Paul was from Tarsus, Constantine set up the Eastern Roman Empire in Constantinople.
What can we do?It is popular in the media and society to call anyone who defends their Christian beliefs an "Islamophobe". Many are shocked into silence while a media, entirely ignorant of the violent and non-Biblical goals of Islam are promoted on television and print by celebrity hosts. Standing firm is an absolute requirement.
Read and study. There is a huge difference in the way Westerners and Muslims view the world. Until our leaders acknowledge that, we will continue to lose ground. Muslims do not separate the secular from the religious. Islam is a way of life. The Quran allows the faithful to use deception to overcome infidels (you and me). Use of Social media to circulate factual information about the necessity of opposing Islamic growth, bringing in Sharia into our legal system and sharing facts and reports from reliable sources is important. As President Reagan said" Trust but verify"; this applies to any information found on the internet.
The flashpoint, hair trigger world situation requires responsible persons to be prepared to "have oil in their lamps" as Jesus said, be ready for harsh times ahead and that will likely mean for many being ready to protect family, friends and neighbors from a terrorist war taking place across U.S. cities. For some of you, this should mean being able to move or relocate to where like-minded people will gather and ride out the coming storm -- or at least make a valiant attempt to ride out that storm.
For everyone, this means having and investing in backup emergency supplies of everything from bottled water, water storage tanks, survival foods and knowledge, home security and defense, and of course everyone getting their lives right with God while we still have time.
We each need our own "Noah's Ark""As it was in the days of Noah so shall it be..." It's time to build your ark and wait for the rain to come down. Then go inside and potentially wait it out for that rainbow at the end of it all.
Of course this follows a famous story from the Bible about the first time God judged the world. Since the Bible teaches God is going to judge the world one more final time in a series of post-apocalyptic events, if it has been a long time since you considered the story of Noah and the Ark maybe it's time to go back to that story as just one of many lessons from the Bible that have been passed down through the ages we need to look closely at.
There's a reason for it all, and there's a reason you're here reading this today.
