Part 2 of 2 [Wait, I want to read Part 1 first]
DISCLAIMER: If you could hear my voice it would not be enraged, but insistent and urgent. I am deeply concerned for those Muslims and non-Muslims who I believe are asleep, or perhaps waiting on the sidelines to see how things shake down. I am most concerned for those who are followers of Jesus, to hear the Lord’s urgency that the time is short. My sincere desire is for ALL to come to a saving encounter with a loving God, not the god of Islam (where there is no love, no forgiveness, no assurance of righteousness and salvation). I want my readers to encounter the living God, Yahweh, and his truth expressed through loving engagement and most clearly in Yahweh’s Son, Jesus of Nazareth—Messiah.
We must not accept the view that Islam is a peaceful religion.
This view is at best, naive or at worst, an intentional lie; but, BOTH are a demonic deception. Only its nominal adherents–American converts, and the politically correct–would fall for such a lie in the light of Islam’s history (remember, our American youth are pretty much historically bankrupt. Consider their teachers. Then consider their teachers’ professors in the politically correct, historically castrated secular temples of tolerance, where history is remade in its authors’ images). This lie of Islam’s peacefulness is being exposed by many brave voices. Those voices are criticized and silenced by a new alliance.
The political left in the United States has formed what one author called, “an unholy alliance,” sustaining and maintaining the lie through political correctness. The alliance utilizes the tactic of “labeling.” If you disagree with someone of a different race or religion you will be labeled by them as a bigot, a racist, an islamophobe, or whatever new doublespeak they invent this week with their new bedfellows–the jihadists.
If the politically correct, pluralistic elite really cared about Muslims, they would open their eyes. They would face reality. They would learn the history and dogma of Islam. They’d compare it to the self-revelation of God in the Bible and realize–and help Muslims to realize–their error and escape from their captivity to post-modernism and the resurgence of oppressive Islam. Those who appease and accommodate Islam today, will not find Islam accommodating them tomorrow. Unless eyes open, Islam will be the religion of the land and sharia law, not the Constitution, will govern.
As I said in my book, “Blitzkrieg” is on its way again. Change will come fast. Change will unleash terror. . . . Unless, we do something NOW!
Doesn’t anyone see the obvious deception of Islam? Are you tired of the deception, of being lied to? Of course we know that in the last days, people will have their eyes closed until it’s too late. And they will maintain their freedom to embrace alliances against Jesus of Nazareth and his followers until their freedoms no longer exist under the legal system of the Antichrist (Mahdi). Then, according to the Bible, they will cry out and long for death but will not be able to find it (Rev. 9:6). In my opinion, this is the suffering that awaits our unwillingness to confront the darkness of Islam before it’s too late to do so. The Bible calls it the Great Tribulation.
Look to Europe, the UK, and the Netherlands. Listen to the brave voices willing to confront this present darkness. Look at the human rights violations–yes, include Christians too (many do not include suffering Christians among their concerns over human rights violations. Satan blinds them to see only what he wants them to see.)
Yet with all this, DON’T respond in hatred toward Muslims.
Hate their religion, YES! But separate that from the people. They are victims of deception. Love them by sharing truth, love, and the Good News of the Kingdom of Jesus with them. Believe me, this will not be THEIR response to us. Herein lies the truth of which worldview is truly of God–How do you treat other PEOPLE who disagree with you? Satan’s children hate and do violence no matter what they call themselves. God’s children return good for evil, truth for lies, love for hatred.
Our God will never require us to kill you if you don’t believe us . . . or Him. He has given EVERY human being freedom to choose what he/she will believe. Yahweh (God of the Jews and Christians), is the ONLY source of truth. He is the ONLY source of freedom. Freedom is your right. Freedom is my right. Freedom is the right of every Muslim trapped in the Devil’s doctrine of Islam. No one has the right to take away what only Yahweh can give. Yahweh preserves freedom; Allah steals it away. Allah is bondage (legalism). Allah is darkness though he proclaims himself an angel of light.
I agree with Walid Shoebat:
“The very descriptions of the devil in the Bible are the very descriptions of Allah in the Koran. The very descriptions of the Antichrist in the Bible are the very descriptions of the Mahdi of Islam.”
What I’m about to say is not about sequence (timing), but consequence (results):
Before God and as an ambassador of Jesus Christ of Nazareth–Lord and Savior of heaven and earth–I submit that:
- Yahweh alone is God. There is no other. Only pretenders.
- Yahweh is ONE God.
- Jesus Christ is his Only Begotten Son (the right Hand of the Father), crucified, murdered by evil men, but raised to life. Now holding ALL authority in heaven and on earth.
- He is giving us all time to turn to Him and discover the Beautiful News of the Royal Reign of Yahweh.
- He stands ready to return to this world—not as a Muslim evangelist (as the Koran teaches)–but as the Judge of all the living and the dead.
- He will destroy every enemy of Yahweh by his Word and establish the Kingdom of Love (NOTICE: HE will destroy, not us).
- We will be seated with Christ and judge the supernatural powers behind all Antichrist worldviews.
- They will all be destroyed in the Lake of Fire–Satan, the Mahdi, Allah, and all his demonic hordes (jin), along with all those who, by their own free choice, served them willingly and knowingly and whose names were not recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
- God will remake the heavens and earth. The New Heavens and New Earth will be the home of righteousness for those who loved Jesus and his appearing.
By the way, if you read The Revelation of Jesus Christ from our library–the Bible–you’ll find that Yahweh and His Son, Jesus will be victorious over Allah at Armageddon. The nations that surround Israel and have sought the life of the believing Jews will be totally destroyed by the Messiah . He is God’s choice because of His righteous life and sacrificial love.
“Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9–11, ESV)
If you are Muslim and have not understood these things; and if God’s Holy Spirit is giving you insight and opening your heart to God’s love for you, why not turn to Him. If you have a genuine heart after God, ask Him to show you more or Himself. Tell Him you’d rather know his love and know that your sins have been forgiven, than to hope that you might make it into Allah’s paradise. God’s provision for your freedom cost Him everything, including His only Son, Jesus the Messiah. God has made it possible for you to turn from religion to Him. Simply turn from your way to his, from Allah to Him. He is waiting to transform you supernaturally to truly know him. If you want the true faith of peace and love, then you need to know Your heavenly Father. He is the heart at the head of the Universe. You are not his slave, but can be a beloved child—a member of His own household. He will not hold you at a distance as Allah does. He will embrace you in His presence. He will welcome you home—the home where your heart always longed to belong.

Someone predicted that Jesus was supposed to return today. Of course, He has not yet returned. He never does return when men or women predict that He will. History is repleat with the anticipation and disappointments of His immanent return. That is not to say that He couldn’t come the day after tomorrow (no, I’m not setting a date–just making a point).
Jesus WILL come, but not when someone announces what day and hour he will come. NO ONE knows when He will return. We only know the season. Since I’m writing this, we have yet another PROOF of what Jesus said in answer to those who want to know the day and time of His return.
Our Challenge: To not become scoffers with others who mock because of misplaced zeal. For the plan of the enemy is and has always been to cause us to distrust the Father’s word. “Has God really said?.” Reread what the devil said to Eve in the Garden. That was precisely his tactic. It has not changed throughout history. His strategy: Cause them to doubt God’s goodness and love.
When people set dates about the coming of Jesus, the enemy creates disappointment, discouragement, and makes Christ’s followers look naive. Ultimately, false predictions close the ears for our more important announcement: God, the Father, loves you with an undying love. He has bridged the gap between Him and us through the death and resurrection of Jesus. So now we can be members of His household and precious Family members with him. Ultimately Jesus will come and when He does, he will sort out everything. Then God will create the New Heavens and New Earth–the home of all those who trusted that he is Lord and Savior of humankind. What’s required on our part? To believe that this Good News is true and includes any who desire a relationship with the Father of that new world.
What an awesome message!
The quick answer to the questions posed in the title of this post is:
Jesus is with His Father, in the heavenlies. He is in His resurrected body and will return physically and visibly. By means of the Holy Spirit, He is in the midst of His people–those who have received and accepted his gift of reconciliation and peace.
He will return at a time appointed by the Father. According to the Scriptures, even the Son of God did not know that time. Nor do we! Jesus told us that we would understand the signs of the times and that the season of His coming would be obvious. We ARE in the season of His return. I happen to believe it is immanent, but have NO IDEA about what day or hour He will return. So I remain ready. How about you?
Because the most important question is: ARE YOU READY?
