The spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus. What Jesus has said (and is saying to the Church) stands–God is Father (Abba).
God has given the body clarity by His Word first. With regard to the claims of Islam and those demanding that you be politically correct, we do not need to be conflicted or blown around by various winds of teaching or opinion.
Islam is a lie! God has spoken:
“Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son” (1 John 2:22). [emphasis mine]
Islam denies BOTH! Father and Son.
Islam claims that no god but allah exists. And that Mohammad is his Prophet. This is the first lie–allah is the moon god of the Canaanites. It is not just an Arabic name of our God. To Islam, allah is not Yahweh–the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. They argue that God is not a Father because he has no children. If their god is not a father, then He is not Yahweh. If their god has no son, then their god is not our God–he is a usurper. Do not be deceived by any claim of Islam to be compatible with Christianity. Or by any “Christian” who believes that allah is our God. If ANYONE teaches you other than what you have heard the apostles of Christ teach you, let them be eternally condemned:
“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:6–10, ESV) [emphasis mine]
Please turn away from compromise with Islam immediately or you will lose your way. Do not forfeit the truth in order to “please man.” We already have been told that the Good News, the Gospel, will offend. So appeasing in order not to offend should be out of the question. It’s one thing to not intentionally offend when a better delivery can pave the way for an acceptance of the Gospel, but to change Scripture or deny God or Christ as his Son in order to not offend a Muslim is not an option for those who love God.
Islam says that allah has no Son (sons). That is the second lie and denial. God the Father has declared that Jesus is His “beloved Son” in whom, He is well pleased.
Therefore, comparing Islam’s stated beliefs with the biblical text above, Islam is Antichrist. Flee from it.
When 2+2 no longer equals 4, rational discussion is at an end because facts no longer matter. This is how far relativism has splintered the modern mind.
Scripture warns that even Christians will believe a “strong delusion” in the end times.
“The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9–12, ESV)
If you have read this far, You have been clearly warned.
“Do not despise prophecies,” (1 Thessalonians 5:20, ESV)
Do not reject or dismiss prophetic warnings. This is an imperative–a command of the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul. Instead, take action. Do not believe what the politically correct appeasers both inside and outside the church believe. They are misleading you in the same way Israel was misled in the Prophets, by false prophets.
No religion that demands that you compromise the Gospel or the Word of God has any validity in the Church of Jesus Christ–among the regenerate sons and daughters of Abba (Yahweh). We are to love Muslims but reject their belief system–lock, stock, and barrel. We are to proclaim the Good News to Muslims–that they can be set free of enslavement to this moon-god and can know a Father who loves them enough to have given his Son.
How much do you love Muslims? Do you love them enough to discern and clearly speak the truth to them in love?
Understand that the only God who deserves our love and honor is Yahweh–the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

**I have intentionally not capitalized “allah” because I cannot bring myself to capitalize the name of a usurping, fallen principality–the moon god of the Arabs. No such honor is deserved.
