Have you ever wondered why there is such persecution happening by fundamentalist Muslims towards the body of Christ all over the world? Have you ever wondered why the West is coming under a LOT of pressure from Islamic fundamentalists to sanction Islamic practices that actually creates a subculture and divides the us and the them? Have you wondered why the West is being beguiled into believing that Islam is a religion of peace, YET on the daily news the actions of fundamentalist Muslims are contrary to a peaceful religion? Do you want to know the answer why this is happening? It’s God’s handiwork. Yep, you heard right. Think about this… The western church has most definitely lost its salt. At best, it stays silent or at worse, ENDORSES sinful practices. Yep. We ALL know what’s happening within the institutionalised church. We have a church that refuses to address sin! What sin are we talking about? Adultery, Fornication, Homosexuality, Abortion. Now think a bit further on this… These sins are often ignored, but worse still, in regards to homosexuality are endorsed by having laymen and woman lead the church even though they are practising homosexuals. Now bear with me. Think about this… WHAT religion do we have today that actually punishes these sins… adultery, fornication, homosexuality and abortion? What religion do we see that publicly kills anyone committing any of these sins? ISLAM! I find it ironic that where the church has failed in addressing these sins and pointing to FORGIVENESS, GRACE, MERCY AND THE LOVE OF GOD, that we now have a religion that exercises brutal punishments and NO forgiveness, grace, mercy and the love of God for these very same sins. I am 100% convinced that if the church separated worldly and always ever-changing social morality from biblical morality, then Islam would NOT be an issue today. If the church fails in pointing towards Grace that is bestowed upon the sinner (the church fails because it’s too scared to teach about biblical morality) then the House of God will be cleaned out. Remember; “For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And “If the righteous is scarcely saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?” 1 Peter 4:17-18. But because of your hardness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment is revealed. He will repay each one according to his works: but wrath and indignation to those who are self-seeking and disobey the truth but are obeying unrighteousness; affliction and distress for every human being who does evil, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek; Romans 2: 5-9 WHY is the church (I use this term in the broader visible sense) not only failing to bring people to repentance because of sin, but now it’s failing to divide between biblical truth and error? I cannot even begin to fathom that there is now a joining of truth and error. And I’m not talking about secondary issues here. I’m talking about the basic tenets between two faiths. In this post-modern, politically correct world we see not just a church who has lost its salt, but a church that cannot properly divide truth between error! And I mean BASIC truth, fundamental truth about the biblical Jesus! The church is literally a whitewashed tomb. It appears to be clean, but inside are dead bones! The common mantra; Oh, we all worship the same God! We believe in the same Jesus! Allah and God are the same! NO! The Islamic religion is under the spirit of something other than the Holy Spirit. It’s very clear that the Koran and the Hadith and ALL of its teachings deny the deity of Christ and God being the Father. It says so, not only in it’s teachings but this is also inscribed on all compass points on the Dome of the Rock. NOT only does it deny the deity of Christ and God the Father and Holy Spirit, it denies that Christ EVER died and was raised. That is also written in the Koran and Islam’s other holy books. Islam has NO concept of God being a Father, according to Islam any such thoughts are to be accursed and anyone accepting these truths are to be put to death! Any Christian who thinks that Islam is another expression of a path towards God is biblically ignorant as the bible is very clear that anyone who denies the Son and the Father is in the Spirit of Antichrist and these same Christians have also fallen under the spell of this Spirit. Each Christian has to ask themselves, do the very basic tenets of Islam, the Koran, the Hadith and the Sharia law line up with the bible? Islam is either true, or the bible is. Both cannot be true when they are the very antithesis of each other. Compare the differences:
- It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, “Be”, and it is. Verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord: therefore serve Him; this is the Straight Way. [The Holy Qur’an, Surah 19:35-36 A long inscription is found on the inside walls of the octagonal structure of the Dome of the Rock. It denies Jesus as the Son of God, His resurrection as well as the Trinity. The Dome of the Rock is filled with inscriptions from the Koran that DENY Jesus as the Son of God. The Koranic verses that speak about our Lord are the very antithesis of what the bible says about God and His Son.
- Here are the inscriptions on the Dome of the Rock which are taken from the Koran: S: In the name of God the Merciful, the Compassionate. There is no god but God alone, without partner. To Him belongs dominion and to Him belongs praise. He gives life and He makes to die; He is powerful over all things. [conflation of Qur’an 64:1 and 57:2] Muhammad is God’s servant and His messenger. SE: God and His angels send blessings on the Prophet. 0 you who believe, send blessings on him and salute him with all respect. [Qur’an 33:56] May God bless him and grant him peace and mercy. 0 people of the book, do not go beyond the bounds in your religion, E: nor say anything but the truth about God. The Messiah Jesus son of Mary, was only God’s messenger, His word that He committed to Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him. So believe in God and His messengers. Do not say ‘three’. Refrain, NE: it is better for you. For God is one god. Glory he to Him — that He should have a son! To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and in the earth. God suffices for a guardian [Qur’an 4:171]. The Messiah will not disdain to be N: God’s servant; nor will the angels who are stationed near to Him. Whoever disdains to serve him and waxes proud, He will muster them to Him, all of them. [Qur’an 4:172] 0 God, bless your messenger and servant, Jesus NW: son of Mary. Peace be upon him the day he was born, the day he dies, and the day he is raised up alive. That is Jesus son of Mary, in word of truth, about which they are doubting. It is not for God to take a son. Glory be to Him. W: When He decrees a thing, he only says to it ‘Be’ and it is. God is my lord and your lord. So serve Him. This is a straight path. [Qur’an 19:34-36 paraphrased] God, His angels, and men possessed of knowledge and upholding justice uphold bear witness that there is no god but He. There is no god but He SW: the all-mighty, the all-wise. The true religion with God is Islam. Those who were given the book did not dissent except after knowledge came to them, when they became envious of each other. Whoever disbelieves in God’s-signs, God will swiftly call to account. [Qur’an 3:18-19].
- How do they line up with the bible? 1 John 2:22-23 “Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.”
2 John 1:7 “For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.” “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast (the coming Antichrist), for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.” (Revelation 13:18) Islam denies Jesus as the Son of God, according to the bible this is the VERY SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST! Those who are Christians yet ignorantly say that Islam is a religion of peace have to realise that biblically speaking this religion is the very ANTITHESIS of the biblical triune God, that being the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit! Islam IS the spirit of ANTICHRIST and will act accordingly to it’s revealed word in the Koran! We are suppose to be the Children of Light and be a witness to JESUS as the SON OF THE FATHER!!! 2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? John 8:12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Ephesians 5:11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. Amos 3:3 – Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Read that last question again… can we walk together unless we agree. DO NOT BE UNEQUALLY YOKED! What does that mean to us? We must let our light SHINE in the truth that it is Jesus who IS the Son of God and that Jesus is the way, the truth and the LIGHT! That ANY who DENY him will NOT see the FATHER or have everlasting life, and that any who DENY JESUS, so to JESUS will deny that person JESUS will DENY them to His Father. So we want that for our Muslim friends and family? NO!!! We SHOULD want them to be saved away from their ANTICHRIST religion that promises nothing. THE SON OF GOD, JESUS is the ONLY way and the gift of salvation is FREE! No earning it, JESUS paid the price! “But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 10:33 It is a battle, that’s for sure. We are told that we should hold the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God! Christians, we have our Helmet of Salvation, and we have the Sword, we are told to use it! Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. The Sword of the Spirit is a divisive tool. We may not like to wield it, we may feel that we are being unkind. But, why should we hide our light under a bushel? We have been instructed clearly to illuminate that light in the darkness, to share the good news of Jesus being the SON OF GOD. HE IS NOT DEAD, AND NEITHER IS IS WORD! Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. DON’T HIDE YOU LIGHT UNDER A BUSHEL! Pray about this before speaking out. It is promised that we will be given strength via the Holy Spirit to have the right words! Trust HIM, and let the Holy Spirit do His work in us.
