Recently my wife, Marcy, read me a quote from an “Open Doors” ministry memo. Islamic extremists (devout Mohammedans) issued an ultimatum following “prayers on July 18.” Following PRAYERS! [which tells as much about their god as it does them] Are you ready?
We offer Christians three choices: convert to Islam, pay the Jizya [a protection tax], or you will have ‘nothing but the sword.’”
In other words, their god tells them that either you convert, submit, or die. This is the core of Islamic devotion to Mohammed.
The memo goes on to report that Mosul was home to 3,000 Christians before the attacks by ISIS—the Islamic State in June 2014. Now the majority of those followers of Jesus Christ have had to flee. Why? Because the god of death has issued an ultimatum against the God of Life and His people—Jews and followers of Christ.
This is not a new war. This is not a new version of Islam. Nor is it merely a human war. We’ve seen this all through history.
I was amazed when I heard Bill O’Reilly say that he just didn’t get it where all the antisemitism came from in history. I’ve watched O’Reilly for years. I appreciate his take on things. But I was shocked that a student of history who also testifies to being a Christian doesn’t know where it came from.
[True followers of Christ do not go around forcing anyone to believe in Yahweh or Jesus. We certainly present Him as the Truth, but that is because Truth is who HE revealed himself to be. We simply present HIS claims. People are free to choose or not. God grants this liberty, this freedom to all human beings. Therefore no one in heaven or earth, human or non-human can take it away. That’s why genuine followers of Christ (I can’t speak for all who claim the title “Christian” because horrors have been perpetrated upon the world in the name of God by those who did not know Him). Those Jesus said were His true followers, understand Him and will not follow another, or DO THINGS THAT DENY HIS CHARACTER. They are possessed by the Spirit of Christ.
ISIS is a typical example of the anti-Yahweh, anti-Christ spirit. This is the demonic principality that was in Haman, Herod the Great [who, sometime between 4BC-2BC, had all Jewish boys below the age of 2 murdered], Mohammad, Catholic zealots of the Inquisition, countless others in the dark ages, in Hitler and his SS, and today continues to possess Islam’s decadent followers of allah. I assure you demon oppression and possession is real, not figurative. I have been involved in deliverance ministry in the past and I assure you, what I’ve encountered there is the same reality that Jesus encountered in His own ministry. I didn’t just read about deliverance ministry, I live it. So I recognize it when I see it.
Jesus Christ said that you can know a people by the spiritual animus and character of their god. The god of Islam demands that people die. The God and Father of Jesus Christ demands that people not murder one another: “Thou Shalt not Kill” and “Love your enemies.” The Spirit of Yahweh’s unique Son—Jesus Christ—animates His true followers. You will not find them threatening, killing, hating, and hunting down those who will not accept their worldview. They serve the only true God—a God of LIFE! The author of love, who has chosen to reveal Himself through the Messiah as “Father.” And not a dysfunctional father either.
Allah is a god of death who has no son.
Yahweh is the author of Life and love, and testifies that He has a Son–Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
They obviously are NOT the same god.
Christians MUST take a stand in prayer against this evil demonic god and his demonized followers. Jesus identified the Father of all (including the Jews) who would commit murder and say they’re doing it for God . . . Their father, allah, is the father of lies. The Pharisee’s father was Satan himself–the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning. Hear Jesus:
“ . . . your father the devil. A liar and murderer.”
You can easily know who a person is following as his god by the fruit that follows. Jesus said of FALSE prophets (including, and especially Mohammad) that “ . . . you shall know them by their fruits.” What do their lives produce. Even their words can fool you, but their character and what they leave in their wake will not (if you have eyes to see and ears to hear).
Those who love and follow Christ are too busy winning the world for Christ to hate people and want to massacre them. We will win the world, not through violence but through the love and transformative power of God upon the human heart. Those who further both nationalistic Zionism and orthodox Islam, do so by threats and murder. They have one and the same god–Satan. Their fruit proves it.
If they really thought their god was all powerful, he could defend his own reputation. He wouldn’t need mindless, robotic, evil murderers to do his dirty work for him. No this exposes the rotten core of Islam for all the world to see. And we’ve seen it before. The Ottoman Empire was destroyed by the West on 9/11/1835. It will be consumed again, but not by the West. The West is lost in a politically correct dream. Islam will be destroyed when Yahweh destroys allah, his followers– all liars and murderers who have not repented of their evil deeds–in the Lake of Fire at the coming of Christ.
I speak to the church. Don’t let the world (islam or otherwise) squeeze you into its mold. Allah, the Canaanite moon-god should NEVER be mistaken for Yahweh–the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Creator of everything seen and unseen.
We are to put on the spiritual armor and STAND against the evil forces and principalities of this world. Jesus will deal with them when He returns. But we must stand in the Love of the Father, by speaking the truth and not allowing others to be convinced that we have the same God. Those who still seek truth and God need to see the difference as we glorify Him in our lives.
As I was reading posts and articles regarding France, I was struck by three thoughts.
1. Our American youth who fought for France in WW II died for nothing. Those brave men who died on the Normandy beaches and in the little towns in France paid the highest price so that France could turn its back on God and pursue the freedom of demeaning people of faith. Interestingly, they are embracing the values of their WW II enemies. France was our longtime friend. The French helped us in our fight for freedom. They gave us lady Liberty–our famous Statue of Liberty.
We saved France from Hitler. Ironic how now they’ve turned and embraced him from the grave. Even to the point that many of them don’t believe that the Nazis murdered anyone. I wish some of the members of their heroic French Underground were still alive, and that their stories were valued. That brings us to point two.
2. Perhaps, since France wants to be a secular nation, all people of sincere faith and belief should leave France. Let them have their Godless society and see how long it lasts. I know one thing, I for one will not be buying French products. I’m standing with those who value the American and FRENCH blood shed to save them from the horror of the Nazis Third Reich. I’m standing with the followers of Christ and believing Jews who face ridicule and public humiliation for their faith.
3. France’s famed patriots–the French Resistance–died for what? Their sacrifice disappears into the mist of history in the hearts and minds of France’s newest conceit. The French have always considered themselves as above normal humans elsewhere in the world, yet look how pride blinds an entire society. They are willing to devalue and forget the past; therefore, they’re assured to repeat it. And they are repeating it! Nazis swastikas and anti-semitic sayings can be found everywhere. The authorities at least are fair, they don’t single out any particular faith, they despise ALL faiths. Why did France bother with retribution against Nazis sympathizers following the great war? Today, those people would be heroes in France and could hold public office.
Remember this is the home of the French Revolution–you don’t like someone . . . Off with their heads! That’s a good reason that Islam will do well there. Only a matter of time. Only this time. Let’s not run off across the Atlantic Ocean to help the French–who seem no longer to value friendship with America. Let them enjoy their free choice. Let them enjoy the right to need no one and no God to stand with them. Let them stand alone. After all they’re still free to choose . . . for a little while longer. Only pity their patriots, especially the French Underground and all the young Frenchmen who paid the ultimate price for this generation’s sad and selfish choices.

BACKGROUND & DISCLAIMER: [The following is an open letter I wrote to young leaders (and friends) I’m coaching. I wrote it to suggest a course of action in response to the growing global menace of covert, Qur’anic Islam. The email embedded in the letter is set off by >>>>>>>>. I did not write the email nor do I agree with every view of its author.
Upon research I found that though it made bogus source-claims, it states some important truths whomever the author].
An Open Letter to the sons I coach,
Given my studies in both Medieval Islam and the History of the Ottoman Empire, I found the following email very interesting and believable, though it’s not what it claims to be (it never appeared in any Spanish newspaper or publication). Even so, what it says about Islam is verifiable.
I do not consider the article racist either, or culturally insensitive or whatever other politically correct label could be pinned to it. Truth is never racist. Speaking what is true is not intolerance. Remember, that this world-system rejects the Truth–Jesus. The world does not know or receive truth. Jesus made it clear that only those who hungered and thirsted for righteousness would find what they were looking for.
Islam is a covert religion which has no qualms about deception to accomplish its purposes. Deception is permitted, even encouraged. This belief is called “El Takria.”
Saladin, one of the early military heroes of Islam, asked the question: Why choose peace when we have the upper hand? Peace is only spoken when we are not yet in power.
The early Crusades were a mix of defensive campaigns against a violent and aggressive religion, fueled by the greed of popes and kings. But the truth is that if the Crusades had not beat back Islam, we would all be under Sharia law today (the global intent and goal of Islam). Because Islam is not only one religion among many, it is a political system that believes in subjugating people to accomplish its purposes.
The final verse in Qur’an is called the “Verse of the Sword.” Sirah 9:5 says – “Kill the unbeliever wherever you find them . . . “ [“unbeliever” refers to anyone of any religion who will not acknowledge–and embrace–Allah as God and Mohammad as his Prophet.]
Jihadist (fundamental) Muslims (as opposed to nominal Muslims) do not commit suicide. That’s not the way they view it; that’s the West’s view. Recently, I heard the Muslim side presented:
Jihadists are not committing suicide, they are assuring their salvation through supreme sacrifice to the rule of Allah worldwide. See 9:111
Islam is, and always has been, a religion of violence. Muslims who deny this are one of three types: ignorant of their own holy writings, lying, or nominal in their beliefs. True believers, educated in their faith know that Islam demands the violent subjugation of everything under Allah.
You can see its violence in the everyday lives of those who live in Muslim lands. All their texts mandate war and violence (47.4). All other faiths must be suppressed or destroyed to impose the order of Allah–Sharia Law–over all. Peace, in their definition, is only when all has been subjected to Allah. Then and only then can there be peace. Until then anything that stands in the way is to be converted or destroyed.
MAIN PROBLEM? The Holy Spirit says that all things are being made subject, not to Allah, but to Jesus
As a result, I agree with Benjamin Net when he says:
‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.” –Benjamin Netanyahu
So I have sent the following article/email along to you in order to better inform you. I did not write it, but I agree with much of it.
ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ
By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez
I walked down the street in Barcelona , and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz … We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.
The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.
And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.
They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.
Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.
And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.
We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.
What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe …

The Jews are NOT promoting brain washing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims. The Jews don’t hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants. There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church. There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people.
The Jews don’t traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.
Perhaps the world’s Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.
Muslims must ask ‘what can they do for humankind’ before they demand that humankind respects them.
Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel ‘s part, the following two sentences really say it all:
‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel .” —Benjamin Netanyahu
General Eisenhower Warned Us It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.
He did this because he said in words to this effect:
Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses – because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened
Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the, 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated’ while many people looked the other way.
Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.
How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center ‘NEVER HAPPENED’ because it offends some Muslim in the United States ?
Our response should be to ask Father to draw the hearts of all Muslims to Messiah, Jesus. We must seek the Lord on their behalf. We must ask Him to display His love for them through signs and wonders–sons and daughters healed, blind receiving sight, lame uncles and fathers walking again, disturbed jihadists delivered from demons. That’s how we love our enemies.
We must not operate in the same spirit as they and other religious fanatics (wherever they’re found) do [see my post, Why I Despise Religion]. For those zealous for God, but lacking in understanding, always serve murder and vengeance. Murder and terror are NOT THE SPIRIT OF MESSIAH or FATHER. We are ambassadors of love. And if love will not work in this world, then this world is undeserving of us. As it is, we an outpost of the Kingdom of our Lord and God. We MUST reflect Him and His character–which is the complete OPPOSITE of Allah.
Even Muslims know this, that’s why their religious zeal seeks to convert or kill Christians “wherever they are found.” Their book, which they consider the word of God, says specifically addressed to Christians:
Allah is only one God; far be It from His glory that He should have a son, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His, and Allah is sufficient for a Protector. —the Women, 4.171
I remember the wisdom of my Professor of World Missions at GCTS–J. “Cristy” Wilson. He served for 15 years as a missionary in Afghanistan and became familiar with Islam and its mindset. He said to our class:
“A Muslim will NEVER be reached by an argument [biblical truth].”
He will only be reached by the Power and Love of God. He must see the miraculous in signs and wonders. He must see the love of Jesus in those who claim fellowship with Him. This is the only Evangelism that will impress him.
So . . . I’m praying “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Remove the veil from their hearts and minds. I’m also asking God to defeat the religious spirits at work in ALL religions. That Messiah, Jesus, may be clearly seen. That His Spirit alone will reign over the hearts of men and women of peace. Only then will the world be a safe place to raise our children.
