Dr. Gary Frazier ~ The Isis Crisis and You
Gary has made 187 trips to Israel. He is a pastor and a Southern Baptist evangelist. (He is leaving for #188 trip to Israel after the conference).
People are beheaded, dumped into mass graves because they will not renounce Christ, and burned alive. Why are they doing this, and what should be an appropriate response from us?
FACT: 1 We are the Terminal generation!
Jesus tells us this begins with the return of the Jews to their land. Matthew 24:32-33 Learn the lesson from the fig tree (Israel). In the last days, Israel would be gathered back into their land. 1948 was the year that Israel once again became a nation. A generation is 100 years. We need to always be ready for Christ’s return.
FACT: 2 World will turn against Israel and the Jews!
There are antisemitic feelings against the Jews in our nation and all around the world. It is satanically driven. Zechariah 12:2-3. God will protect Israel. This passage refers to the Tribulation Period.
FACT: 3 We are engaged in 2 wars! Physical and Spiritual!
Physical against Satanic religion of Islam! Islam is determined to rule the world. I John 2:22. One fourth of the world is Islamic. Biologically, they are exploding while the west is dying. Europe has 1.3 children per family. The United States has 1.6 children per family. A Muslim woman has 8-14 children. They know they will win through biological growth. We will never win this war. But God will step out of heaven and fight for Israel. Ezekiel 38-39.
We are fighting a spiritual war as well. We are fighting against Satan and his demons. Most American Christians are not engaged in spiritual warfare. Ephesians 6:10-17. We are all under spiritual attack. Over 1,000 churches are closing their doors every year in America. Every 13 minutes in England a church closes, and every 18 minutes in England a Mosque opens. Most of God’s army is totally disengaged from the conflict. Many Christians fail to share the Gospel with people. If you are willing to fight the fight, you will see God do unbelievable things. People are held bound by the religion of Islam, and we need to intercede. Muslims can go to heaven only if they kill a Jew or die as a martyr.
FACT: 4 People inside/outside church are uninformed & disengaged!
Many really do not have a clue about what is going on. They would say they are Christians. There is no longer a premium on the teaching and preaching of the Word of God. People desire only to be entertained. We have more Bible knowledge available than ever, yet we are living in the most spiritually ignorant generation in our nation’s history. The falling away reveals that we are the Terminal generation.
We have fallen in love with the world and think we are safe from the coming danger! Americans believe Isis a war fought only upon foreign soil. The fact is, it is coming to our nation. There are sleeper cells ready to engage at a moment’s notice. I John 2:15. Love of the world will make you spiritually blind.
FACT: 5 We have been brainwashed with Love/Tolerance/Political Correctness.
It is creeping in the churches now. We do not want to offend anyone. Let us not talk about homosexual marriage, etc. Truth, however, always offends. Unrepentant sinners will attack the messenger. Isaiah 55:11. God’s Word never comes back void. God’s love and His truth must have balance in our lives. Do not read books about the Bible more than you read the Bible. The power for Godly living is found in the Word of God. Jude 3. …”contend for the faith…”
Israel= hatred= Barbaric acts terrorism i.e. 9-11= Military response= Increased terror= Confused responses= Increased terror/beheadings= Rage, cries of action= More hideous acts/crucifixions of children, human torches= Desensitizing= fear/trembling peoples and nations= economic crisis= war!
This war is never going to end, and war drains the economy.
There is only ONE religion that advocates and rewards acts of violence and terror: ISLAM. Their goal is to dominate the world. They will arrive even at the White House. (Have they already arrived at the White House?). Radical Islam are actually the ones who are reading and obeying the Koran. Obedient radical Muslims are killing those who do not submit to the Koran.
There is only one nation that has pledged to destroy Israel: IRAN.
You will never resolve a religious problem with a political solution.
We will never win the world to Jesus, nor will we win this war! Matthew 7:13 “…broad is the way to destruction, narrow is the road to eternal life and there be few who find it.”
We will not win the world to Jesus, nor will we win this war against Islam. We will not win the world to Jesus, but we can win one!
True Christians can say yes to the following three questions:
Do you have a desire to be more like Christ? Do you have a love for the Word of God? When you are alone, do you pray?
