Why Should Anyone Fear Radical Islam?


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:

 

The REAL Hate Crime


Open hand raised, Stop Hating sign painted, multi purpose concep“They hated me without cause.”

–Jesus Christ

I find it interesting that in our current culture, those who cry “hate” the loudest are non-believers, atheists, and the religious Christmas and Easter crowd. In reality, they are the haters.

They hate the followers of Jesus who must speak the truth. How the guilty project upon the innocent is an interesting psychological phenomenon. But since I am no psychologist or psychiatrist, I’ll stick with the Son of God’s evaluation. His perspective cannot be improved upon and proves, after all, to not be limited to a time in history. Hating has been going on for a very long time. However, Jesus tells us who the real haters are, giving us also the reason behind the hatred.

“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. 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. 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. But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have been guilty of sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin, but now they have seen and hated both me and my Father. But the word that is written in their Law must be fulfilled: ‘They hated me without a cause.’” (John 15:18–25, ESV)

Here Jesus warns his disciples—those who know and love Him. He tells them in advance the many strange things that are going to come upon them so that they won’t lose heart as they stand in a sinful culture holding out to a hateful world the word of life and love.

First he makes it crystal clear: When you are hated, recognize what is really going on underneath that hatred. The world does not recognize you as its own. You are not seen as a part. Since you are not of their world any longer, they hate you. When you were with them in their sinful, self-directed lifestyle, they loved you . . . or not. But now that you have been rescued from that way of life, you no longer belong—as you grow in Christlikeness. You are no longer under their control. You don’t have to perform to prove your value. Your value is intrinsic in your relationship to Christ.

The reason

They hate Christ. His righteous life shows the decadence of theirs or at least does not recognize their self-made “goodness.” But beyond that . . . why do they hate Jesus? Because, Jesus says: “all these things they will do ON ACCOUNT OF MY NAME (because of Jesus), because THEY DO NOT KNOW HIM WHO SENT ME.” (That would be God, the Father). Nor do they want to know Him.

Think of the immense danger their souls are in. In hating you and me, they hate Jesus and in hating Jesus, they hate God the Father. They are lost to the uttermost and until they turn from their hatred—instead of falsely accusing us of hate—they will remain lost and forfeit immortality.

So . . . what’s our response as disciples and followers of Jesus—sons of the Father? We are to continue to love them. Jesus said to love those who persecute and despitefully abuse you. We must love them. We must pray (as someone prayed for us), that the veil that covers their hearts and minds from seeing who Jesus really is and who they were meant to be will be removed. In doing this, we ransack the kingdoms of this world which are under the operation of the enemy. We displace darkness with light, lies with truth until all of God’s children know that they are loved by Him and find their way home.

God’s View on Benghazi Matters Most


130123101106-06-hillary-clinton-libya-hearing-0123-story-top

Jeremiah 23:23–24 (NIV)

23 “Am I only a God nearby,” declares the Lord, “and not a God far away? 24 Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the Lord. “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.

I admit that for some–ON BOTH SIDES of the political isle–Benghazi is about politics. But not for God.

And not for many loyal, godly citizens–ON BOTH SIDES politically. Those of us who love truth and who love what is right, are not satisfied with the political posturing of either party. And we do not agree that Benghazi is “old news.” Nor will we stand by and allow it to be hidden or swept away. We stand with the Lord and with the families who demand the truth.

The past Secretary of State showed her insensitivity to truth by sweeping the lives of four Americans under her already lumpy carpet. According to God’s revealed will, the lies spun by the Administration and State Department over four human beings–sacrificed to political expediency–are unacceptable to God.

It’s time for everyone to get a clue, that God is not fooled by lies, whitewashes, and political deflection. To Him there is no such thing as “cover-up.” He sees it all!

“What difference does it make” Madame Secretary? Here’s the difference . . . 

aa-caskets-of-benghazi-victims

You may fool and deceive some of the people, but . . . what if one of these coffins had YOUR daughter in it? Would the lies and cover-up still be “old news?” Would it be unimportant to get to the bottom of the failures in order to correct the way we handle international security? Would you settle for a Secretary of State telling you that your daughter’s death is “old news?”

What if a Republican or Libertarian Administration were covering up and lying? Would it make a difference then? Do you think the Obama/Clinton Media would be covering it then? Or would they drop it as “old news”? Is there any genuine integrity left in Washington? Where are the real statesmen and women? Where are the real journalists . . . who will not allow themselves to be mesmerized by liars on the left or the right?

Ecclesiastes 12:14 (NIV)

14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.

Revelation 22:14–15 (ESV)

14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

Word of Warning to Politicians and National Leaders


ImageImage

A Word of warning to the politicians–ON ALL SIDES–who whisper, lie, and cover up. Be warned you who think that you will never be held to account:

Psalm 2:10–12 (NIV)

10 Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. 12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Be certain:

Proverbs 17:13 (NIV)

13 Evil will never leave the house of one who pays back evil for good.

Proverbs 6:16–19 (NIV)

16 There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood [think here abortion & infanticide too], 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes [think cover-ups too], feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

Proverbs 15:31 (NIV)

31 Whoever heeds life-giving correction will be at home among the wise.

Ecclesiastes 4:13 (NIV)

13 Better a poor but wise youth than an old but foolish king who no longer knows how to heed a warning.

Be warned, the mouth of the Lord has spoken!

A New Approach?


A pastor friend of mine from Nova Scotia shared his approach to preaching, teaching, and writing. He decided to not speak “against” anything. Instead he speaks and writes “for” what is biblical and good. This keeps him positive and lets people draw their own conclusions about how the positive message should inform their values and opinions (I think it keeps him out of the line of fire too, although he might disagree).

I’m beginning to think that I’ll adopt a version of that philosophy, but I’d like YOUR opinion. I shared with another friend in ministry and he said that Jesus often spoke out against things, especially injustice and sin. Who could do better than to follow the model of Jesus? Except that his approach led him to amass a huge crowd of enemies among the unrepentent and the religious heirarchy. Ultimately his values and worldview took him to the cross, where he absorbed their evil and took the penalty that their sins deserved. By the way, Jesus did this willingly. According to his own testimony, as the Son of God, he had at his disposal tens of thousands of powerful spiritual beings (angels, Cherubim, Seraphim, etc) who could have wiped out everyone around him and rescued him, but he surrendered willingly. Ponder that sometime.

I’m not sure, if Jesus walked today, that anyone would even listen to him. Well, they might listen, but I KNOW they wouldn’t HEAR.  I’m certain, beyond a shadow of doubt, that he would be labeled a bigot, intolerant, noninclusive (he called the Syrophonecian woman a “dog”–meaning Gentile), he could get physical at times (as in the temple courts when he overturned the seller’s tables). No, he would not really be taken seriously. He would be viewed as unruly and narrow-minded, judgmental, holier-than-thou.

Perhaps that’s why we–as true disciples of Jesus–were invited to “go outside the city” and take our stand there, with Him. We are not taken seriously in this culture. No one’s listening to the warnings of implosion. No one, including the church, wants to hear messages or writings that confront our sin, hypocrisy (pretending to have virtues but acting opposite to them), or waywardness. We want positive, feel-good, affirm-my-sin-and-opinion, messages.

So . . . that leads me to my new approach. I’m not settled upon it yet. I know I’m called to write and speak plainly so that people can take warning, turn and be saved. But what do I do in an evil culture that’s not really listening? I think I should do what God does . . . I will speak ONLY to those who are really listening–that would be believers who want to grow and know intimate fellowship with Jesus. I will also speak to genuine seekers. And I will speak only what the Lord gives me to speak. That would be values aligned to his Word, the Bible. If people want to argue, they can argue with God. He who has ears to hear, let him/her hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.

2 Timothy 4:3 (ESV)

3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,
