A Great Church Is A United Church Under The Headship Of Jesus Christ

Psalm 133:1  King James Version (KJV)
133 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

Playing in Concert
June 23, 2017

Read: Romans 12:3–8
Bible in a Year: Esther 9–10; Acts 7:1–21

So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.—Romans 12:5-6
During our granddaughter’s school band concert, I was impressed by how well this group of 11- and 12-year-olds played together. If each of them had wanted to be a solo performer, they could not have achieved individually what the band did collectively. The woodwinds, brass, and percussion sections all played their parts and the result was beautiful music!
To the followers of Jesus in Rome, Paul wrote, “In Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us” (Rom. 12:5-6). Among the gifts Paul mentioned are prophecy, service, teaching, encouragement, giving, leadership, and mercy (vv. 7-8). Each gift is to be exercised freely for the good of all (1 Cor. 12:7).
One definition of in concert is “agreement in design or plan; combined action; harmony or accord.” That’s the Lord’s plan for us as His children through faith in Jesus Christ. “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves” (v. 10). The goal is cooperation, not competition.
In a sense, we are “on stage” before a watching and listening world every day. There are no soloists in God’s concert band, but every instrument is essential. The music is best when we each play our part in unity with others. —David C. McCasland
Lord, You are the Conductor of our lives. We want to play Your song of love and grace in concert with Your children today.
There are no soloists in God’s orchestra.

INSIGHT: There are five listings of spiritual gifts in the New Testament: Romans 12:6-8; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11; 12:28-30; Ephesians 4:9-11; and 1 Peter 4:11. In each of these lists the emphasis is not on how many different types of gifts there are, but on how we are to use them in a loving way that promotes unity in the church, builds up the spiritual maturity of the believers, and brings glory to the Lord. To achieve this, Paul tells us not to think too highly or too lowly of ourselves (Rom. 12:3). We are to use our spiritual giftedness in humility (v. 3) and embrace diversity in the body of Christ with sincere love (v. 9) and mutual respect (v. 10).How has God gifted you? How can you use your spiritual gifts to promote unity and harmony in the church? Sim Kay Tee

Bloodshed Is Coming To America

By Jason and David Benham

God warned of this long ago

 

Bloodshed is coming to America, and it won’t be a response to oppression but the result of aggression – against God and our constitutional form of government.
The increasingly violent acts in our streets, town-hall meetings and university campuses are simply birth pangs for a greater upheaval that’s brewing hot – and it’s not by accident.
Although the narrative is that street protests and student uprisings are simply a response to Trump as president or guest speakers with conservative values, the truth is they are coordinated attacks resulting from a subversive anti-God, anti-American ideology that has indoctrinated our universities for more than 50 years.
Let us explain.
In 1963, a book written by Cleon Skousen titled “The Naked Communist” was presented to Congress by Rep A.S. Herlong Jr. of Florida. In his remarks, he submitted the book’s list of goals, which revealed how revolutionaries intended to turn our nation from constitutionalism to communism without firing a single bullet. And the schoolroom provided the perfect staging ground. The full list of goals can be found in the Congressional Record – Appendix, Pages A34-A35, Jan. 10, 1963.
Here are just a few:
17) Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18) Gain control of all student newspapers.
19) Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations, which are under Communist attack.
20) Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21) Gain control of key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures.
24) Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25) Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.
26) Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
28) Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
29) Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30) Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31) Belittle all forms of American culture, and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.”
32) Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
40) Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
42) Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition, that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.
Sound familiar? These goals aren’t simply being taught to our youth, they are being caught – and now carried out.
The problem is many of the cultural leaders in this movement are now calling for – and sometimes even demanding – bloodshed.
Listen to some of these horrifying statements:
“I wish they (Republicans) were all f—ing dead!” – Dan Savage
“If I had my way, I would see Katherine Harris and Ken Blackwell strapped down to electric chairs and lit up like Christmas trees. The better to light the way for American democracy and American freedom!” – Democratic talk radio’s Stephen Crockett
“Republicans, whose goal in life is to profit from disaster and who don’t give a hoot about human beings, either can’t or won’t. Which is why I personally think they should be exterminated before they cause any more harm.” – The Village Voice’s Michael Feingold
“Michele (Bachmann), slit your wrist. Go ahead. .. or, do us all a better thing [sic]. Move that knife up about two feet. Start right at the collarbone.” – Montel Williams
“I have zero doubt that if Dick Cheney was not in power, people wouldn’t be dying needlessly tomorrow. … I’m just saying if he did die, other people, more people would live. That’s a fact.” – Bill Maher
“F— God d-mned Joe the God D-mned Motherf—ing Plumber! I want Motherf—ing Joe the Plumber dead.” – Liberal talk-show host Charles Karel Bouley on the air.
“That Scott down there that’s running for governor of Florida. Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him.” – Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa.
“Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Well, we’ve been watching intifada in Palestine, we’ve been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? … It’s about time that we have an intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here. And we know every – They’re gonna say some Palestinian being too radical – well, you haven’t seen radicalism yet.” – U.C. Berkeley lecturer Hatem Bazian
Click here for a full list of calls to violence.
This is serious stuff, folks. Calls for bloodshed are on the rise.
But we should know God warned of this long ago. When a nation devalues His precepts, distorts His principles, and denies His path bloodshed will follow bloodshed.
The prophet Hosea said, “Listen to the word of the LORD, O sons of Israel, for the LORD has a case against the inhabitants of the land, because there is no faithfulness or kindness or knowledge of God in the land. There is swearing, deception, murder, stealing and adultery. They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed. Therefore the land mourns, and everyone who lives in it languishes” (Hosea 4:1-3).
Today, we are beginning to languish as a nation – and it’s high time we turn back to God.
“Therefore, return to your God, observe kindness and justice, and wait for your God continually” (Hosea 12:6).
Just as bloodshed is the result of turning away from God, liberty and freedom are His response when we turn back to Him. Let’s pray for this today.

Heaven Or Hell? Wheat And The Tares. Light Verses Darkness. Sheep And The Goats. Eternity Offers Only Two Destinations.

Revelation 14:11  King James Version (KJV)
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

*****************

Those who reject God and His offer of salvation will have no rest forever and ever-a most sobering thought.  But this is the patience of the saints-that the grace of God gives them rest from working for their salvation, but they have an eternal rest and reward prepared for them.  Until then let us labour to enter into that rest, and let us not be weary in well doing.   -D. Pickup

Work, for the night is coming, work thro’ the sunny noon;  Fill brightest hours with labour, rest comes sure and soon.  Give every flying minute something to keep in store;  Work, for the night is coming, when man works no more.   -Annie Coghill

 

2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 53

Dan Goodwin    ~    2520: God’s Prophetic Number

Dan Goodwin is a full time evangelist and prophecy teacher.  Now, 99% of his ministry is Bible prophecy.  His calling is to warn the saints that Jesus is coming back soon.

God sealed many truths until the time of the end.

Revelation 19: 9-11 King James Version (KJV)

And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Jesus returns at the end of the 70th week of Daniel, at the end of the Tribulation Period, on a white horse, carrying the title deed to the planet earth, He ends the battle of Armageddon, He comes to the Mount of Olives, goes through the Kidron Valley, and into the eastern gate of Jerusalem.  Jesus starts the millennial reign, the kingdom age, and takes possession of the planet earth.
********************
Dan went into a review of the seven Levitical feasts that are all in Leviticus 23.  These feasts are all of the Lord, and are His prophetic calendar.  Please refer to the 2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 52, also hosted by Dan Goodwin, for a review of these seven feasts.  Dan Goodwin believes the Old Testament will last for 4,000 years, the New Testament will last for 2,000 years, and the millennium will last for 1,000 years for a total of 7,000 years.
Dan said he knew when Christ was coming.  He is coming on the day appointed.
Dan revealed the law of the harvest as well, also on Part 52 of this conference.  He reviewed three different calendars as well.
Dan believes that Revelation 4:1 is the rapture of the church.  Many theologians agree with this view.  He also believes the seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3 represent seven different church ages within the time of the church.  [I do not agree with this understanding because the seven churches are seven ACTUAL churches.  The Bible does not tell us that they represent seven different periods of history.  When the Bible is silent, we should be also].
The Tribulation Period is not about us.  It is about the 70th week of Daniel, the Holy City, the Tribulation and the children of Israel.  Dan believes the rapture will happen during a new moon in the fall.
The purpose of the seven feasts is to prepare people to dwell with the Lord.  These feasts also are indicative of prophetic events.  
Dan reviewed the three major Sabbaths in the Bible and the Year of the Jubilee, also mentioned in Part 52.  Dan then expounded on the seventy weeks of Daniel.  
In the year of Jubilee, the land goes back to the original owner.  Dan believes the next Jubilee will be the 70th Jubilee.  
The Tribulation Period is not mentioned in the Bible as seven years.  It is two halves of 42 months each.  There are 1260 days in each half.  There are 2520 days in the Tribulation Period.  Dan believes Christ will come in the fall on the Day of Atonement on a white horse.  He will return on the new moon.  Christ’s return revolves around the barley harvests.  
Dan then attempted to endorse 2520 as a significant prophetical number.  I did not agree with his computations.
As summed up in Part 52, I thought that Dan Goodwin has a tremendous burden for Christ’s return and for the lost.  He does a great job revealing the relevance of the Levitical feasts, the Sabbaths, and the Year of Jubilee with Bible prophecy.  He is, however, too dogmatic for me, and skirts the issue of date setting, although he does not set an actual date.                 

Ex Muslim Preaching Christ In Hyde Park, London

Kevin Clarkson, Host of Prophecy in the News:  “God hates Islam and He loves Muslims.”

Lost souls are not the enemy, they are victims of the enemy.

God always has His remnant, and this street preacher is living proof.  As I listened to him, it took only two minutes for me to realize he could preach rings around 98% of American pastors.  Why?  He has not only knowledge, but fears God and not man.  He is anointed, with unction, fervor, passion and zeal.  He loves Jesus and the truth.  He preaches the Bible with boldness and clarity, and does not focus on the latest program.  He is a soul winner.  May the Lord continue to anoint and use him.  He inspires me.  This preaching is what we need all over the world.  I will listen to him next Saturday night.

2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 52

Dan Goodwin    ~    God’s Final Jubilee

2520 are the number of days in the Tribulation Period, Daniel’s 70th week.  Dan’s teaching in his seminar tomorrow revolves around this topic.  The theme of Revelation 4:1 is the rapture.  The church is not mentioned again after Revelation 4:1.  Revelation 19:11 is one of Dan’s favorite verses.  This is the Lord Jesus Christ at the end of the Tribulation Period, at the end of Daniel’s 70th week.  Jesus rides a white horse and returns to the planet earth and to Jerusalem to set up the millennium.  Christ is the first fruits.  He rose bodily.  The rapture is the main harvest.  After that, is the gleaning.  The gleaning are the saved people on earth after the Tribulation Period.

God’s Final Jubilee-  The Jubilee is intertwined in the seven feasts of the Bible.  The seven feasts are in Leviticus, chapter 23:  1)Passover, 2)Unleavened Bread, 3)First fruits, 4)Pentecost, 5)Feast Of Trumpets, 6)Day Of Atonement (Yom Kippur), 7)Feast Of Tabernacles (Type of the millennium).  Feasts 5, 6 and 7 are yet to be fulfilled.  Dan believes the Feast Of Trumpets is the rapture, to be fulfilled during the new moon in the fall.  He believes Jesus will return at the end of the Tribulation Period on the Day of Atonement.  The Jubilee takes place on the Day Of Atonement.  This happens every 49 years, and the 50th year is a Jubilee.

There are three major Sabbaths in the Bible:  1)The seventh day Sabbath.  2)The seven year Sabbath.  The Israelites were not to plant on every 7th year.  Slaves were to be freed.  (For 490 years, the Jews did not keep the Sabbath rest.  The 70 year Babylonian captivity returned all 70 years back to God for the land to rest).  3)Jubilee- Seven of the seven year cycles made 49 years.  Every 49 years there was the big Sabbath called a Jubilee.  The trumpets blew, all the slaves were set free, all debts were forgiven, and all property and land went back to the original owners.  The Jubilee is a reset button or a fresh start.  Some Jews believe 1967 was a Jubilee year.  Dan believes they may be right.  That would make 1917 a Jubilee year as well.  General Allenby took Jerusalem from the Muslim Turks, leading to the Balfour Declaration in 1917.  The Balfour Declaration led to Israel becoming a nation in 1948.  ***   The Jews in Israel are the only nation to lose their sovereignty and come back!   ***  In 1967 Israel was blessed in the six day war.  Israel received property in both 1917 and 1967.  Fifty years from 1967 is 2017.  Jesus Christ is coming back on a Jubilee year, on the Day Of Atonement, and taking back what is His.  It could be 2016 or 2017.

Dan said he is 110% Pre Tribulation rapture in his eschatological beliefs.  Jesus is coming.  Harvest is in the fall.

The Jubilee started in 1500 B.C. with Moses.  The next Jubilee will be the 70th Jubilee.

Dan has a real urgency about the end times and the return of Jesus Christ.  In my opinion, however, he should be careful about date setting in reference to the Jubilees and other dates.  False prophet Harold Camping fell into this trap in his book “1994,” whereby he proposed a similar scenario of dates, ending up with Christ’s return in the fall of the year 1994, around the Day Of Atonement.  He considered 1994 to be a Jubilee of Jubilees, or the fiftieth Jubilee.  He was obviously wrong.

The ABCs of Salvation

Some people think a personal relationship with God is something only theologians can comprehend.  Actually, God’s plan of salvation is simple enough for everyone to understand.  Here are the ABCs of salvation.

Admit

Admit to God that you are a sinner.  All persons need salvation.  Each of us has a problem the Bible calls sin.  Sin is a refusal to acknowledge God’s authority over our lives.  Everyone who does not live a life of perfect obedience to the Lord is guilty of sin.  “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”  (Romans 3:23).  Since none of us is perfect, all of us are sinners (Romans 3:10-18).

The result of sin is spiritual death (Romans 6:23).  Spiritual death means eternal separation from God.  By God’s perfect standard we are guilty of sin and therefore subject to the punishment for sin, which is separation from God.  Admitting that you are a sinner and separated from God is the first step of repentance, which is turning from sin and self and turning toward God.

Believe

Believe in Jesus Christ as God’s Son and receive Jesus’ gift of forgiveness from sin.  God loves each of us.  God offers us salvation.  Although we have done nothing to deserve His love and salvation, God wants to save us.  In the death of Jesus on the cross, God provided salvation for all who would repent of their sins and believe in Jesus.  “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life”  (John 3:16).

Confess

Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to others.  After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, share your decision with another person.  Tell your pastor or a Christian friend about your decision.  Following Christ’s example, ask for baptism by immersion in your local church as a public expression of your faith.  “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”  (Romans 10:9-10).

Lyrics
What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King…
You were the Word at the beginning
One With God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ
What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
You didn’t want heaven without us
So Jesus, You brought heaven down
My sin was great, Your love was greater
What could separate us now
What a wonderful Name it is
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a wonderful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
How sweet is your name, Lord, how good You are
Love to sing in the name of the Lord, love to sing for you all?
Death could not hold You, the veil tore before You
You silenced the boast, of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring, the praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again
You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever, Our God reigns
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name, above all names
What a powerful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a powerful Name it is
Nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever, Our God reigns
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name, above all names
What a powerful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a powerful Name it is
Nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

Profound Insight And Quotations From The Sword Of The Lord – January 27, 2017 And February 10, 2017

INSIGHT:

When the Lord Jesus Christ hung upon the cross, cosmic events accompanied by signs and wonders occurred between heaven and earth. A supernatural darkness came over the earth midday. Many theologians believe that for the first time in eternity past the fellowship between the triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—was interrupted. As Christ took our sins upon Himself on the cross, His Father could not stay in fellowship with Him. An earthquake opened the tombs of some Old Testament believers, who were brought back to life. So dramatic were these events that even a Gentile, such as the Roman centurion who oversaw Jesus’s crucifixion, made a declaration of faith.

***************

The world will not be Christianized, but it should be evangelized.  -Vance Havner

How often a good sister or brother rises to testify, “I want to live such a godly life that sinners will see my daily walk and be saved!”  Living a godly life is important; but the first condition of soul winning is this: Get up and go after sinners! -John R. Rice

Christ’s last act was winning a soul.  His last command was to win a soul.  His last prayer was forgiveness to a soul.

The Lord has given you much light from the Word and will hold you responsible for its use.  If you obey Him and walk in the light, you will have more.  If not, the light will be withdrawn.  -George Muller

I don’t know any more about theology than a jackrabbit does about Ping-Pong, but I’m on my way to Glory!  -Billy Sunday

A good character is the best tombstone.  Those who loved you and were helped you will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered.  Carve your name on hearts and not on marble.  -Charles Spurgeon

There is no gathering a rose without a thorn until we get to Beulah land.  -D.L. Moody

Our greatest trouble is, as I see it, that we have Christianity without Christ; forgiveness without repentance; salvation without regeneration; politics without God; and Heaven without Hell.  -Oscar Lowry

Do not in the darkest night what you’d shun in broad daylight.

The chief danger of the church today is that it is trying to get on the same side as the world instead of turning the world upside down.  Our Master expects us to accomplish results, even if they bring opposition and conflict.  Anything is better than compromise, apathy, and paralysis.  God, give us an intense cry for the old-time power of the Gospel and the Holy Ghost!  -A.B. Simpson

I’m more impressed with what a preacher gets thrown out of than with what he gets invited to.  -Tom Malone

In some circles, God has been abridged, reduced, modified, edited, changed, and amended until He is no longer the God whom Isaiah saw, high and lifted up.  -A.W. Tozer

I hope I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an “honest man.”  -George Washington

Youth today is asking, “Who am I?”  But few are willing to face what they really are-sinners separated from God.  -Vance Havner

Many people will not kill a mouse without publicizing it.  Samson killed a lion and said nothing about it.  Say much of what the Lord has done for you.  Say little of what you have done for the Lord.  Do not speak a self-glorifying sentence.  -Charles Spurgeon

Men will wrangle for religion, write for it, fight for it, die for it-anything but live for it.  -D.L. Moody

If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and counsel, there is no telling how great a catastrophe shall come upon us and bury our glory in profound obscurity.  -Daniel Webster

You may be deeply religious and still be lost.  It is sad but true that many will be in Hell not because of lack of religion, but because of their religion.  -Curtis Hutson

The religion that makes a man look sick certainly won’t cure the world.  -Phillips Brooks

 

 

The History Of Islam

The following history of Islam is a six part series the blog author wrote about five years ago, based on Patrick Buchanan’s book “Death Of The West,” and the sequel “Day Of Reckoning.”  I reprised it from six parts into this one lengthly article.  One of the important precepts in this story is that the Lord is allowing the wickedness of Radical Islam to harm the West because of our decadence.  If we stood squarely upon our original Judeo Christian foundation, Islam would not even be on the radar.  Islam can only enter a spiritual vacuum.  They intentionally attempt to strip a nation of their heritage, which in our case is Christianity.  They desire to make our nation secular, which is the spiritual vacuum that Islam builds upon.  Our nation is so spiritually lethargic, that it seems we are lacking a fervor and urgency to stop Islam from growing.  If ever born again Christians were called to pray, intercede and get involved, the time is now!  

Pray For Revival In America!   

 

 

“The Death Of The West” is the title of a book written by former presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan about ten years ago. He also wrote a sequel called The Day Of Reckoning. In his book, Russia, Europe and America are considered the west. His thesis is that immorality and a lack of conviction for the values that made our nation great are contributing to the rapid decay of the United States of America. We have gone from a country built on the Judeo Christian ethic to a pluralistic, multi cultural melting pot that stands for less and less everyday. Today’s buzzword is tolerance. That is tolerance for anything except the values that our country was built upon. We have entered the theatre of the absurd as special interest groups make outrageous claims. You can read about PETA, the ACLU, ACORN, Greenpeace and a host of others on a daily basis. President Obama claims he is a Christian, yet sanctifies sodomy, even making the marriage month of June, Gay Pride month. Nearly 60 million babies have been aborted since Roe vs. Wade, and our citizenry has the audacity to wonder why so many immigrants without traditional American values are “taking over.” It is called the law of sowing and reaping. The traditional and Biblical family is becoming extinct as the universal means for people living together. Now we are told that any living arrangements constitute a family. People boldly come into the Christian Church desiring to serve even though they are living in sin! Because the Christian Church has not stood on the Word of God, the church is having less and less impact on our culture. Buchanan suggests that our only hope as a unified nation is revival. He hit the nail on the head. Lately, there has been a lot of emphasis on “hosting the largest prayer meeting ever for our nation or in the state in which we live.” Our needs go far deeper. We need repentance within the church and we need 24/7/365 prayer “without ceasing!” Our nation is spiritually and morally adrift, economically challenged, and no longer do we feel secure from terrorists and other nefarious groups of people. God has always desired for us to walk with Him again but if we insist on doing that “which is right in our own eyes,” then He will let us go. 9-11 is the proof that He has indeed done just that.

There is great concern in our nation today about the building of mosques and the advancement of the agenda of radical Islam. This religion is built upon falsehoods and can only enter a vacuum created when people leave the One True God of the Bible. They have been setting their sights on the west because they perceive that we are currently in the “post Christian era.” They will erroneously conclude that Christianity does not work as they correctly observe the decay of the west. What they do not understand is that God did not leave us—we left Him. England left the Lord decades ago and is now paying the price. They stopped supporting Israel long ago, Christianity barely exists in England, and London is an international city that would best represent all beliefs. It is said that sharia law will soon be accepted in Great Britain, as England will be the first European Country to succumb to it. No longer can one say that the sun never sets on the British Empire. If you go as a visitor to England today, you will see people of Anglo Saxon descent serving at the tourist centers like Big Ben, the Parliament, Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. If you walk for a block or two past these aforementioned locales, you will think you are in the Middle East. Radical Islam views all of the west in this manner, as nations to rapidly take over. Future entries on this site, the Lord willing, will reveal in detail the history, beliefs, mindset and agenda of radical Islam for the
west. The sole purpose of these articles is to incite the Christian Church to awareness and prayer. That is, “prayer without ceasing.”

The Seedbeds Of Islam:

Mohammed was not born until 570 A.D., long after the Bible was completed, both Old and New Testaments. The mindsets for the monotheistic religion of Islam, however, were already established. We will have to go back to the days of the original Biblical patriarchs in order to examine the fundamentals upon which this religion was built.
There are several Biblical characters who established the foundation for the religion of Islam. The first and foremost personality is Ishmael, born from the union of Abraham and Hagar. Isaac was Abraham’s rightful son of God’s promise, and was born later through Abraham and Sarah. Ishmael was blessed of God with a great number of progeny, yet he was lacking in spiritual and eternal blessings. Ishmael’s legacy of his people is best summed up in Genesis 16:12- “And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him: and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” This verse beautifully sums up both the religion of Islam and Ishmael’s people and descendants. Ishmael had a nephew Esau who was likeminded with his uncle. Both Ishmael and Esau were older brothers in their respective households, yet against the grain of Jewish law and protocol, their younger brothers both received the blessings and promises of God. Esau was a hunter, a hairy man, rugged, and the favorite of his father Isaac. He thought little of spiritual blessings however, and the familiar Biblical story has it that he sold his birthright in order to meet his hunger. Arabic descendants from both Ishmael and Esau were key players in the future religion of Islam, but there are others. When Mohammed came on the scene, descendants from the following Arabic peoples were also ripe for conversion to Islam: The descendants of Abraham’s nephew Lot made up the countries of Moab and Ammon who would also figure heavily as converts to Islam in the future. Less frequently cited is Abraham’s later wife Keturah, after Sarah’s death, who had many more sons with Abraham, further populating the Middle East with additional Arabic peoples. Abraham and Keturah had one son Sheba who settled in the southern Arabian peninsula. The Queen of Sheba who later visited Solomon, of course, came from this locale. Today, the nations of Yeman and Oman have replaced the ancient Sheba, yet the same progeny of Abraham and Keturah live in these countries. These early Arabic peoples lived under chieftans and sheiks, who were autocratic leaders over their respective families and clans. They populated the Arabic peninsula, living nomadic lifestyles in the desert, fighting off other people and neighbors, and if there was no one else to quarrel with, they fought amongst themselves. One can easily observe the fulfillment of the above cited Genesis 16:12 through the descendants of Ishmael and the early Arabic peoples. Hence the groundwork for the yet future religion of Islam has been laid.
Future entries will document the background and life of Mohammed, the pugilistic history and spread of Islam, and we will follow the tracks of this religion from the loins of Abraham to Armageddon.

Enter Mohammad………….

Mohammad is an enigma wrapped in a riddle. To understand Mohammad and his convoluted theology is to understand Islam. The Western version of “Islam” and the little Americans know is usually not the real thing. Do you want to study nations that represent Mohammad’s teachings? Then examine Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Iran. Mohammad’s teachings, when implemented to the fullest, give the citizen the choice to convert or die. Infidels (anyone who is not a Muslim) are disparaged throughout the Koran, with Jews and Christians referred to as pigs and apes/monkeys. This belief system is a far cry from orthodox Christianity. Christians respect a person’s right to believe as they desire and do not attempt to force conversion on anyone, realizing that true salvation is a change of heart that only God can bring. We pray for the lost and have no desire to kill them, and do NOT want them to die without salvation. Islam is obviously a religion promoting fear in anyone who does not convert. This is why Franklin Graham was nixed on our National Day Of Prayer by President Obama, because he called Islam an evil religion. Most Christian leaders do not have the fortitude to make such a statement. Let us examine the theology of Mohammad:
Mohammad is now the most common name given to newborn boys in London, England! It is a name taken by countless sport celebrities, and other notables around the globe. When I went to Jordan/Israel in 1987 this was the name of the young man who pulled my donkey through a narrow siq as I entered the famous city of Petra, carved out of solid rock and featured in the Indiana Jones movie Temple of Doom. Let us now carefully examine the famous person behind those who are named after him. Mohammad (570-632A.D.)— Mohammad had spiritual visitations from Genes, beings who tormented him for a great amount of time until he became the catalyst for the Muslim faith. Today, the well known Arabic word Genie is derived from the beings who were bothersome to Mohammad. In my opinion the Genes seem as if they are one and the same as what a Christian would refer to as a demon or fallen angel. There were times when Mohammad seriously contemplated suicide. Mohammad lived in Mecca, a city that grew quite large on the Arabian trade route. Mecca, a leftover urban center that can trace its’ roots to the previous Babylonian Empire, was polytheistic, believing in many gods. Mohammad became monotheistic in his beliefs and promoted only one god, the moon god Allah, taken from the pantheon of Babylonian deities. [Abraham also lived in lands and cities who worshipped primarily the moon god in both Ur of the Chaldees and later in Haran. This is one of the reasons that God called him to a different place.] Mohammad attempted to institute this belief system in Mecca without success. He also tried to convince the local Jewish people to convert to this religion since they were also monotheistic, but they considered him to be a false prophet and would have nothing to do with him. This laid the groundwork for an absolute and perfect hatred of Mohammad toward the Jewish people and the antisemitism we see everywhere. [This is why the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hamas, Hezbolah, Iran, Iraq and countless other nations and leaders will accept nothing short of the total annihilation of Israel.]
Mohammad successfully gained a foothold for Islam in the nearby Arabic city of Medina. The faith of Islam grew so fast and so large that it can only be explained as a supernatural phenomena. His armies converted thousands and slew thousands, and it was not long before he took over the entire Arabian peninsula, threatening nearby Asia, Africa and Europe during his life and the years immediately following. To understand Islam is to understand the sword, and their growth is through intimidation and threats of “convert or die.”
The Lord willing, future entries will thoroughly examine the beliefs of Islam. We will isolate several Arabic words that give us a comprehensive understanding of their philosophy, as their beliefs are often totally foreign to us. We will examine the history of Islam’s expansion throughout the world, and Biblical eschatology (end times prophecy) that traces their steps clear to the battle of Armageddon. One cannot understand our world today without understanding Islam. One final important note: Islam cannot possibly exist as a democracy or coexist with other religions! Islam is a religion, a culture, a social, political, economic and military system capturing every aspect of life. In the Islamic mindset, there is no alternative beyond their faith. Islam will promote peace only when everyone is Islamic.  Islam even means submission, and there will be global peace only when everyone submits to the teachings of Islam.  Until then, their war cry is Jihad. This is why it is foolish for any other nation to attempt to instill a democracy or republic in a Muslim nation. Put simply, the West does not understand the East and the radical agenda of the Islamic religion.

Increasing Our Arabic Vocabulary:

There is a politically correct, sanitized, western Muslim spin that makes this religion appear innocuous. Canada features a television show called “Little Mosque On The Prairie.” Not to be outdone, our nation now displays “All American Muslim.” These shows come on the heels of radical Islamic unrest in the Middle East in order to alter the western understanding of the naive. An excellant website for anyone who wants to understand the real agenda of this movement is RadicalIslam.org  The packaged agenda mentioned above intentionally glosses over jihadist terrorism, inequality with non-Muslims, misogyny, honor killings, the apostasy death penalty, etc., etc.  When the tentacles of this religion start taking over a nation, then the real intent of the belief system tends to dominate. Liberal or western Muslims will be urged to take Mohammad and the teachings of the Koran more seriously or they will not advance in the state under the radical Islamic agenda, and something could happen to their family members as well. Make no mistake, the teachings of their founder Mohammad and the Koran are what this faith is all about. They feature: * The sword against infidels. * All the teachings of Mohammad. * All the teachings of the Koran. * Jesus is not the Messiah and He is not the Son of God. He is a mere prophet and he is subordinate to Mohammad. * Ishmael was really Isaac. * Jerusalem really belongs to Islam even though the city is not mentioned in the Koran. * The Bible is full of errors and corrupt. The Koran was given later on in order to amend the corruptions. And the list goes on and on and on…. As you see, lies are a part of this religion and we will examine some of their words that describe their beliefs in detail: **Taqiyya is used to deceive Non-Muslims about Islam. It means deceit. Not only does Islam encourage believers to lie, it even commands it.  Muslims lie in order to make their beliefs more appealing to outsiders.  Since lying is so integral to Muslims, the ONLY way one can understand them is by watching what they DO, NOT by listening to what they SAY. Because of this, I believe Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim. He CLAIMS to be a Christian yet has offered no testimony of his “new birth.” [John 3:3] He has disparaged the Christian roots of the U.S.A. whenever he has the opportunity, and he is also opposed to Israel more than any other president. He bowed down low to the king of Saudi Arabia with his chin nearly scraping the floor, yet he blows off the prime minister of Israel and the queen of England like they were dust on his shoes. He is pro abortion and pro sodomy as well!  I believe that he is in favor of these later awful twin sins because they harm our nation and other countries in a great way, reduce our respective populations, and polarize Americans against each other. These sins may go against the teachings of Islam, but since they hurt our western nations of infidels and pave the way for a Muslim advance in the near future, they would be expedient and favorably endorsed by Muslim leadership! His wife Michelle told him years ago that if he wanted to succeed in American politics, he would have to change his religion.  Hence he is a political and not a truly born again Christian. [i.e. In name only since it was politically advantageous for him to do so]. Obama, of course, belongs to a radical political “Christian” Church and not an evangelical Christian Church, because he is not a Christian. This is why he eliminated Franklin Graham from the National Day of Prayer, and every representation of true Christianity from the White House during his term in office. But my oh my, they are having Ramadan celebrations in the president’s home on a regular basis. If you remember, Rick Warren led in his Presidential Inaugural since Warren’s idea of the Christian faith is less offensive, more tolerant and all inclusive. Obama made the comment that “… we are no longer a Christian nation…” at the Presidential Inaugural event as well. That comment should have been a clue to anyone listening with absolutely any amount of discernment. Since this belief system is based on the father of lies, there are featured yet other words that encourage untruths. **The Qurayah Model for instance, encourages lies about peace. An example of this can be found in the case of Islamic treatment of the nation of Israel. The Post World War I plan for Israel (based originally on the Balfour Declaration) was a good sized nation, featuring a large land mass including all of Transjordan. This original plan has been attacked for nearly a century, and now Israel is nothing but a carved up small piece of the original intended country, roughly the size of New Jersey. The surrounding Arabic nations like Syria, Egypt, and Jordan, and radical groups such as the PLO, Hezbollah and Hamas, demand more and more of their land in exchange for “peace.”  It is a repetitious cycle of Israel’s land for a pseudo peace, intended only to destroy this Jewish nation. **Sharia Law- Their way of life and their religious, economic, and political beliefs are mandated for all. This is implemented when they take over in mass. Great Britain is on the verge of this actually occurring in their nation.  In the United States they would usurp our Constitution and every statute upon which this country was founded. **Jihad- A war is declared on behalf of Allah. It can be against an individual, a group or a nation. **Dhimmis (dhimmitude)- This belief allows infidels to live so that the state can make third class citizens out of them and tax them to the extreme (50%). When this is no longer expedient, then claims that the infidels are not submitting to Sharia Law are made and they can then be killed. The Lord willing, on the next entry, we will briefly and succinctly examine the history of this religion from Abraham to Armageddon.

Maranatha, Pastor Steve

We already laid the groundwork for Islamic expansion, discussing their foundation as they came to rapid and total domination of the Arabian peninsula. A century after these initial victories, they took over a lot of the decaying lands in the post Roman Empire, sweeping west along the Mediterranean Sea and getting a strong foothold and conquering most of Spain. Remember, Islam advances only wherever a vacuum exists and when people lose their former character, beliefs and moral fiber. Spanish and Mexican people today have dark complexions because of this Islamic advance nearly 1300 years ago. The Muslims were about to attack all of Europe from the west but they ran into an obstacle that made their military operations grind to a halt. The Franco leader Charles (the Hammer) Martel defeated the Islamic advance in Tours in 732 AD (100 years after Mohammad died) or they would have taken over all of Europe. For you history buffs, Charles Martel was the grandfather of Charlemagne, king of the Franks and emperor of the so called Holy Roman Empire.
Islamic advances are noted throughout history to occur about every 700 years, so let us fast forward to the 1400’s. The religion of Islam had a very strong base by this time in the Middle East, and were led by the Ottoman Turks for a lengthly period. The Ottoman Empire is noted for hindering and thwarting the attempts by European Crusaders to conquer the Holy Land. The Ottoman’s also captured Constantinople, the capital of the Eastern Byzantine Roman Empire, and renamed the city Istanbul. This became their base of operations for another attack on Europe—–this time from the east. This time they advanced into modern day Romania and ran into a powerful local chieftan named Count Vladimer Dracul. He was a leader who became involved in psychological warfare and impaled his victims on stakes out in the open for all to see. Count Vlad is considered a hero in Romania today; unfortunately his life has become fictionalized with supernatural folklore in our nation and if you have not already guessed, we know him as Count Dracula. There are several castles in Romania today that face the great plains to the east and the once advancing Muslim Turks. At any rate, after initial success in advancing into eastern Europe, the Turks and the religion of Islam were once again turned back, or else Europe could have submitted to Islam and Sharia Law.
Early in our nation’s history, we had some encounters with Muslims that made our founding fathers wonder what kind of people we were dealing with. The Muslim Barbary pirates were pillaging and attacking the shores of western Europe and northern Africa. During the American Revolution, we had civilian ships with innocent women and children attacked by these pirates. Our marines were sent to Tripoli in order to quell these disturbances, hence the phrase in the Marine Corp’s Hymn: “…to the shores of Tripoli.” Our founding father’s were aghast that anyone would attack civilians in such a manner. [Fighting on a level playing field does not compute in Islam. They are noted for using women and children as human shields, and simply consider their atrocities from 9/11. They consider this cowardly act to be a great victory, hence they desire to build a mosque near ground zero]. Praise the Lord that the next 200 years of our history were free from this wicked and radical movement.
We are once again 700 years down the road and Islam believes that the time is ripe for the twelfth Imam to initiate world conquest and for Allah to rule over all. Today Islam controls the equatorial belt including Indonesia, North Africa, the Middle East and much of Asia. Their sights are set on the decaying west. Mosques and Muslim neighborhoods are going up all over Europe, Scandinavia and they are coming to the Americas. Detroit is an Islamic stronghold along with other areas of our nation. Israel is surrounded by Islamic countries and terrorist groups who will one day attack her in unison. The Bible refers to these events in Ezekiel 38 and 39, as well as Daniel 11 and in many other places. The ultimate war will be the Battle of Armageddon. Israel will be trapped, outnumbered and without hope. God will intervene in her behalf, defeat all of her enemies with the breath of His nostrils, and set up the millenial rule of Christ.
The next, and final entry of this series will focus on our present day world, and what our spiritual mindset should be in light of all these apocalyptic events that are rapidly coming into view, and will one day come to fruition in the very near future.

Wrapping It All Up

This site is a summary of the theme “Death Of The West,” and the previous five entries. The reader may find much of what will be said to be disconcerting—-BUT it is true. This summary will reveal what will soon be coming upon our nation unless God intervenes through the prayers and actions of the saints. The later part of this entry will place our focus where it should be— on the only God of the universe El Shaddai and the hope He gives us.
Before we sum up everything that has been said in these aforementioned writings, I would like to direct everyone to a three DVD set called “Political Islam’s War On The West” by Bill Federer. The set is 210 minutes long and I have heard lengthly parts of it and it is good. It runs $20.00 (the cost of about six gallons of gas) and is by far the best comprehensive coverage that I have heard about the Muslim strategy to subdue and conquer the world for Allah. It is distributed by Southwest Radio Ministries (www.swrc.com) at 1(800)652-1144. If one desires to be well informed about the topic of these six entries, these DVD’s will do it.
There are no words to describe Christianity in our nation today. Perhaps I can refer to one example that seems to be a reflection of what I see everywhere——spiritual apathy. While preparing for a Christmas Eve service, I quickly went outside to make a final check for our church mail. A young couple who I baptized and married a few years ago were driving by. I have not seen them in church for years but I was nonetheless thankful that they were still together. I encouraged them to come to the evening service but they did not come. That is a microcosm of what I see everywhere. While the average Muslim family has eight people, the “families” I observe in our area can consist of literally anybody cohabitating together. There are usually several last names, and loose knit guardians who hold down the fort. I often hear the mate referred to as a “fiancee.” A fiancee use to be the individual that one was betrothed to. One was always a virgin when they had a fiancee until their relationship was fully consummated through marriage. That is of course the intended meaning. Now “fiancee” often means the one who someone is fornicating with. I have met scores of people who typically have several children, all with different last names, and they always seem to have a “fiancee” and never a spouse. Our population is going down in number by the way, and in the future will not be able to provide for the needed work force of our nation. All of these blended families are destroying our nation’s moral fiber and bleeding our nation of tax dollars, since hard working decent people must subsidize their existence.
This whole scenario provides the ideal backdrop for the gradual Muslim takeover. Muslims start by integrating, and their immigrants commence to populate the land. That has indeed been happening in America. Detroit and Dearborn, Michigan are the little Meccas of the west. Mosques are being built all over our nation, and neighborhoods are in the planning stages in many places. Our mortgage financial crisis sets the stage beautifully for low cost, affordable housing for the masses of immigrants who are sure to come. The moral breakdown of our nation is also a platform that Islam can build on. Their strategy is to initially immigrate, then to saturate through political involvement and “Chicago politics,” and then to change the laws of the land, dominate and take over. When they take over a neighborhood, infidels are encouraged to move out. If they do not, they are often secretly murdered, and if one Muslim witnesses another Muslim commit the crime, he cannot testify against a brother in the faith. This has already happened in Europe, and due to the tremendous lack of spiritual discernment of Americans, I am sure it will happen here as well. I find it hard to swallow that about one half of Americans would put Obama back in office for another term, despite the fact that he has forever destroyed our nation through an unbelievable federal deficit that will reach sixteen trillion dollars by election time in November, and Obamacare which alone will do irreversible financial damage. I dare say that many Americans are not even aware that our president’s desire is to undermine every principle upon which this nation was built: our great middle class, our way of life, our moral fabric, freedoms and our economy. No Christian president would condone sodomy and the killing of unborn babies. His strategy is obviously to consummate his campaign slogan of “change.” What I have noticed for the first time during my life, is there are no reputable opponents to counter his nefarious ambitions. The Republicans have no clear leader who resonates with everyone. Mitt Romney looks like he may be the Republicans’ default candidate. There are no heroes on the horizon. Where is the strong voice in our nation who lives with integrity, opposes evil and we can unite with?
A clear barometer of the lukewarmness within today’s Christian Church is the lack of fruit evidenced in true salvation experiences and commitment from younger people. I have also noticed faulty doctrine within the beliefs of so many. Instead of the repentance that accompanies true salvation, the idea is how many things I can still do as a believer when I take advantage of my “liberties.” (Read Romans 6:1-2 and Jude 4) Another noteworthy concern is that the church is top heavy with seniors in leadership, and lacking with the younger generation and the church of tomorrow. The antibiblical mindset that our culture and schools has instilled upon our youth has been very comprehensive to say the least. This is a universal phenomena in our nation and transcends the size of the church and its’ location. True servant disciples and servant leaders are lacking in younger people. People in their late 50’s/60’s are still leading in ministries and outreach, often with no younger successor on the radar. This is unprecedented. Do you have concerns about the church of tomorrow? I do.
Praise the Lord, however, that He always has His remnant! True and committed believers will stand out today as the pretenders are falling by the wayside. God is and will be purging His church. I think there is a great analogy we can use with our nation and Israel. When Israel sinned and left the Lord, He used the nations of Assyria and Babylon to judge them. I believe He may be using Islam in the same way with the United States of America today. As Patrick Buchanan said in his book Death Of The West: “a revival may be the only thing that will turn this spiritual drift, complacency and backsliding around.”  I tremble that God’s judgment and justice will not sleep forever.  I fear for a nation that has aborted nearly 60 million babies.  I am in awe of our God who will one day balance the books in the realm of “gay marriage,” which is an oxymoron. Did you know that homosexual “marriages” never existed in the history of mankind until now? Homosexuality existed with the Greeks, Romans and other cultures, yet “marriage” was out of the question. We definately received the president we deserve.  Can judgment be far off for America?  I would not think highly of a God who did not judge wickedness in a nation.  What we have done will soon come back to us: Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”  Our judgment will be severe because our nation has received more light than any country in history: Hosea 8:7 “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.”  I would like to mention the statement again that was made in the first entry in this six part series Death Of The West— The whole purpose for pointing out these things is to encourage Christians to get on our knees and then to take action. If we do not, can you imagine the world that our children and grandchildren will inherit?  Yes, I know, the Lord may come for His church but we should not count on this happening in order to avoid trials. He may tarry. The really good news is the following: After Habakkuk realized that his nation of Israel was toast and was about to go into captivity into Babylon, he said “Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls- Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hill.” Habakkuk 3:17-19

A Hymn Of Faith
Faith overcomes all of our circumstances and gives the true believer undiminished joy. “Without faith it is impossible to please God.” The Lord wants us to pray in faith, with great trust and expectation for whatever His response may be. Let us be grateful for the freedoms that we still have and USE THEM FOR HIS GLORY!
