You are entitled to your own opinions; but, you are not entitled to your own FACTS.
“You shall know the TRUTH, and the truth will set you free.” from deception and wishful thinking.
This video is a factual education for anyone who, through ignorance of Islam’s holy teachings or ignorance of the history of Islam and the Ottoman Empire, believes that Islam is a peaceful religion. The facts are a wake-up call for those who don’t understand the need to vet the Muslims who enter our nation. Remember, fundamental Islam is the enemy of everything our nation and God has proclaimed and stood for.
If apocalyptic Islam ever gained a foothold in the USA, blood would run in the streets. They’ve told us as much. First the homosexuals, then all the feminists who exposed their shame, then Jews and Christians. Those who remained would submit from fear, not love. Fundamental, apocalyptic, radical Islam is a horrible and demonic totalitarian worldview couched in lies and founded by a sick, demonized sexual predator whom we should pity rather than submit to. His end is the Lake of Fire in the Book of Revelation.
Are there ANY peaceful, friendly kind, compassionate Muslims? YES. But they are ignorant of history and are considered nominal by the fundamental sects of Islam. Many would submit to a Caliphate if it were established though. Otherwise, we would see them protesting radical Islam and battling that instead of complaining that they can’t get more of them into our country. A rare handful have helped us but we have to be careful. One the camel gets its nose and then head into the tent, the body is not far behind.
Anyone ever heard of the Trojan Horse? Do a study. Learn history for Pete’s sake and you will understand part of what is going on here. Read the Book of Revelation and Matthew 25 and you’ll understand the rest.
This video is a wake up call for those spiritually ignorant regarding the true warfare and its demonic source:
This video trailer of Europe’s Last Stand: America’s Final Warning, summarizes how Islam’s strategy will dominate your country. Like it or not, you will be affected, your children will be affected, your grandchildren will be affected–husbands and wives, sons and daughters, no one will be unaffected.
I was affected over a decade ago, since my step-brother flew into the North Tower of the world-trade center on American, Flight 11. My mom said to him that morning, “Do you have to go? Couldn’t you stay one more day?” He said “No Betty. I really have business I need to take care of.” Several hours later . . . his business was left undone. That was many years ago. Then we had little idea of what Islam was capable of. Ask anyone who lives near a “no-go zone” in UK if YOU and your family will remain unaffected by Islam or ISIS because you live “safely” in the U.S.
Only the uninformed or the most spiritually and intellectually obtuse do not recognize the truth and the danger. We are almost at the point of no return. I spent all day Saturday with Walid Shoebat. We invited him to inform us. He knows from the inside what Islam’s agenda is. And they are not shy about announcing it. Watch this video. Study on your own to see what’s ahead.

If I were wanting to get up to speed on Islam, Sharia Law, Jihad, and the Islamization of Europe, UK, and America; I’d begin with a bibliography of resources on the topic. Unfortunately when I began my study in 1980, no such bibliography existed that I’m aware of. So over the years, I have built one. This resource includes, books, articles and videos. I hope it is helpful to you.
One disclaimer: The resources listed in this bibliography may or may not reflect my own personal views. In many cases they do not reflect them. Those cases would be where the recommended action is to hate or demonize ALL Muslims. Many Muslims are warm, sincere, and loving people. Perhaps even the majority. The problem is that not All Muslims are sincere, loving, peaceful people.
The other problem has more to do with the nature of Islam than its nominal adherents.
The Problem is NOT Exclusively the People
The problem is Islam itself.
Islam is the direct antithesis of Christianity and Judaism. Though Judaism and Christianity both offer a God who is believed to rule over the Kingdoms of this world, He is a God of love and freedom. He does not command his followers to force conversion, nor violate our free will. Nor has he commanded His followers to kill those who don’t agree with or worship Him. He allows the world the consequences of free choice. Yahweh, our God, is NOT the god, Allah. They have little in common and are opposites where it comes to love, life, and liberty.
These resources should help to give you the facts concerning what Islam says about itself in its holy books and through those who rightly understand it.

I despise religion. I despise all dead religion wherever it is found. Let’s define our terms so that if you’re still reading, we’re talking about the same things. Be courageous and stay with me to the end. Be open and honest and you may find that you agree.
Religion–man’s attempt–apart from God–to appease or serve a deity/deities through rules, lifeless rituals, regulations, empty traditions, and vain babbling (empty repetition). Religion enslaves. Dead religion inoculates against relationship. And the TRUE GOD is all about relationship from beginning to end.
Despise–means intensely dislike and have no use for, to count as worthless.
It’s OK if you don’t agree with me, though I wish you would. Then you’d be tracking with God, because I’m agreeing with God. God–Yahweh–HATES religion too. He despises it. God is being quoted here by the prophet Amos:
“I hate, I despise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. –Amos 5.21(ESV)[emphasis mine]
So does Jesus as he speaks to the Pharisees and teachers of tradition:
41 . . . We have one Father—even God.” 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? 47 Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.” –John 8:41–47 (ESV)
It helps to know where you stand when you substitute religion for relationship–loving Jesus and Yahweh. There are only two Fathers. One is the father of lies and religion. The other is the Father of Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah and of all those who have been transformed supernaturally by the power of the living God.
The Apostle, Paul summarizes a section on empty religion by saying:
20 If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations—21 “Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch” 22 (referring to things that all perish as they are used)—according to human precepts and teachings? 23 These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion and asceticism and severity to the body, but they are of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh. –Colossians 2:20–23 (ESV)
You notice that God actually uses BOTH words “hate” and “despise” in the Amos passage. WHY?
“Religion” is a man’s or woman’s attempt to placate some god, or practice some rituals to make them feel closer to their imagined view of a deity or spirituality of some sort. Hinduism has millions of these gods. Pagans worship mother earth, Sophia. or darkness itself. Monotheists have ONE God (though–contrary to modern opinion–not the same one). For example, contrary to ex-Presidents, and nominal Muslims, the god of Islam is not the God and Father of Jesus–Yahweh. They have diametrically opposed values and character (if Mohamed is any indicator of the type of leader Islam produces). Read the history of the Ottoman Empire. Read a life of Mohamed and see if you can honestly say that he knows the biblical God of Love and Life–the Father of Messiah, Jesus. Read A God Who Hates by Wafa Sulton. The God who hates people and the God who loves people are not the same God. The Muslim who must model his life after its founder must love what he loved; he must love violence, hate and demean women, be duplicitous (loves lies) and embrace evil. These character traits come from the father of lies, Jesus pointed out when He said:
44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. –John 8:44 (ESV)
Couldn’t someone say the same about Yahweh–that if the Inquisition and Crusades are an example of the kind of believer the biblical God produces then He is not the true God either? One could, except that according to the Apostle John, those who committed those acts were clearly serving religion. They were obviously not in relationship with Jesus or His Spirit:
4 Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, 5 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: 6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. –1 John 2:4-6(ESV)[emphasis mine]
For in Jesus, we see the kind of person that IS in relationship with Yahweh. He walked in love with God and people. Even his anger served Love. Those who walk in the same way He did, know God, the Father. And throughout history, those few have been treated with contempt and treachery even from so-called “Christians”–the keepers of dead Orthodoxy–both Roman Catholic and Reformation Protestant. Dead religious Christianity is no better than radical Islam–and both will one day see the demonic principality behind their systems.
Only the voices outside the city get it right–those who are standing with Jesus, living out of His Spirit. That’s why the world hates us and our voice. Jesus warned as much:
19 If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. –John 15:19 (ESV)
13 And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. –Mark 13:13 (ESV)
22 “Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you and revile you and spurn your name as evil, on account of the Son of Man! 23 Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets. –Luke 6:22–23 (ESV)
It’s all about relationship–ON GOD’s TERMS, THROUGH GOD’s BELOVED–Jesus. Those in the love of the Father are not threatening, not killing, not oppressing anyone. If you want to see how they live, look at their Lord, their King. They will reflect his lifestyle and values and Life, though imperfectly. But murder, torture, killing, hating, are not even named among them. I hear some “Christians” now. Well, that leaves me out I guess. Not if you have forsaken religion for Messiah Jesus. You are not guaranteed Life by being a “Christian,” only by being in a living relationship with the living Lord Jesus–the Lord of Love. And His way is narrow and few ever find it.
Let’s not make the mistake of imagining that all paths lead to the same place, or that all the waterslides of live lead into the same pool of whatever . . . That’s one of the lies that floats around. The all-paths option disintegrated when Jesus burst upon the scene and made it crystal clear, beyond a shadow of doubt that only One God was the true God–Yahweh–the Father of the Messiah. There is NO OTHER GOD. And that Jesus is the ONLY conduit to a relationship with Yahweh.
5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.” –John 14:5–7 (ESV)
Demons and fallen angels masquerade as gods, but they have no deity. They only seek to usurp and mimic true deity.
Are you telling me that you believe in demons? Are you nuts or something? Don’t you know that this is the 21st Century? Since we know that psychology has explained all of human behavior and demons don’t really exist, Why do you believe in them?
Well . . . a professor asked me that very question at a Christian college one day in English class. I thought about it for a moment and then the Holy Spirit gave me an answer for the professor. “I believe in them because JESUS BELIEVED in them! And I am a follower and disciple of his.” The professor had no answer. But following class, many of my classmates came and affirmed the answer, some questioned me further out of curiosity.
Jesus was not commanding psychological manifestations when he commanded legion to leave the demonized man and go into the pigs. I see more people today who are demonized, including children, but treating their symptoms by going to people who don’t acknowledge the existence of demonic activity or power so they see little freedom. This is the main reason I hate religion. Because of what religion–and the demons behind it–does to people.
The antisupernatural bias of western culture has so permeated our thinking, that few people entertain the possibility that their “issue” or “condition” could be a symptom of demonic oppression. Even among believers . . . I have seen a rush to secular answers before they explore the biblical witness. And now that this post has come out, I’ll be curious as to how many of my “friends” will distance themselves from me. But I have weighed the cost . . . and will stand with Jesus in what He believes.
It’s time to speak up and let the chips fall where they may. I have tried to be diplomatic for too long, but I’m tired of the powerlessness of a pluralism that sacrifices truth in order to seem tolerant or open minded. G. K. Chesterton once said, “An open mind is like an open mouth; it’s meant to be closed around something solid.” Relativism is not the foundation upon which I intend to build my eternal future.
I happen to have experienced demonic deliverance and have seen the freedom it brings. I have participated in seeing people healed of Aids and other hopeless diseases. I have seen the power of Yahweh in the name of Jesus and I have the Spirit of boldness upon me to BE A WITNESS to the name and work of Jesus. So . . . I’m finished with trying to couch my words and witness in nice, comfortable, insipidities that offend no one.
12 Then the disciples came and said to him, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?” 13 He answered, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up. 14 Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.” –Matthew 15:12–14 (ESV)
24 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. –John 5:24 (ESV)
20 Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. –John 15:20 (ESV)
19 If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. –John 15:19 (ESV)
Yahweh is so far above and beyond any other so-called gods that other gods–in the words of God–are no gods at all. If they are no gods, and I believe God’s Holy Spirit, then those who follow or propitiate them are in bondage to beings or images that have no right to rule in their lives. Religion keeps people in slavery to earth-bound systems and powers. Most religious people are not evil, simply lost. Some are genuine seekers. Some have the beginnings of a relationship with God. Only the keepers of these systems know the truth behind them and are themselves empty, deceived and deceiving. Remember what Jesus said to the religious leaders of his day: 44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires.” –John 8.44 (ESV)
Relationship on the other hand, brings people into close fellowship with the One who created humankind. His resurrection Life is a Way for us to know him. And in that knowing to realize that He is Love and indwells those who receive Him. That ALL his purposes for people are good and loving. He has removed our hardened hearts by showing his love. There exists NO OTHER RELIGION on the face of the earth that can claim that their God so loves us that He gave His Son to us, to indwell us. That God himself made a propitiation–a gift–for our separation from the Father.
Consider this: He did not give a gift to himself–He gave the Gift of Himself to us. Whoever receives this Gift–Jesus–has immortality. Whoever rejects the Gift has so hated God that he or she remains in alienation and death. That ends forever any talk about eternal life of ANY KIND (including in Hell). For only those in Jesus have the Life (immortality). Whoever does not have the Son, does not have the Life. (1 John 5:11)
Religion has no life, no relationship. Religion is demonic and lifeless. Religion hates God. Religion goes nowhere and takes countless millions with it.
13 “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. –Matthew 7:13–14 (ESV)
Jesus is the narrow gate to Life. Religion–human performance and pride–is the wide and easy way to destruction, deceiving “many.” . So, along with God, I despise religion and choose relationship.
QUESTION: How about you–have you entered the narrow gate or still within the wide. Will you make Jesus Lord of your life today. Have you forever turned from religion to relationship with Jesus and Father?
