DON’T BE FOOLED….

We read and hear every day about the existing and possible ISIS terrorist threats from  within this country and overseas.

Let me plain here, as I have said to many before: “Love the people but know the spirit we fight”. Here are a few things you should understand:

Allah is Love?

Muslims today portray Allah as loving and kind yet obligate each follower to obey whenever one of Allah’s “spokesman” calls for a jihad or holy war. Since Allah is not the one and only true loving God of which the Bible speaks, suicidal terrorists were assuredly most unpleasantly surprised on September 11, 2001 when they caused the very planes on which they traveled to crash into American buildings. They believed that they would enter into Paradise and live happily ever after with Allah and Muhammad.

They had put “faith in faith” rather than putting faith in Jesus Christ.

 

Islam … 
The simplest way to describe Islam is that it is a religion of submission to the will of Allah. To Muslims, Allah is the God that they worship, the one God. But his character revealed in the Qur’an is not the same as the character of the God of the Bible. If one is to submit to Allah, one must submit to Muhammad and all the people that are leaders of Islam. Faith in Islam is based upon the fundamentals of the Qur’an as well as the lifestyle of Muhammad. True, his historical life was not all that exemplary. According to Islam, however, Muhammad was actually sinless. He is portrayed as having been the holiest person on planet Earth. He is a revered by Muslims worldwide.

TV’s talking heads would have us believe that Muslims are very peace-loving people and that there’s nothing in Islam that encourages war. Though the majority of Muslims are good people (all the ones I know are great), in actuality, through warfare and terrorism, Islam has spread since the 7th century devouring nation after nation as Christians neglected the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus to “go and make disciples.”

There are currently about one billion adherents to Islam. In Safa’s book, there is a passage taken from Sura 9:5 of the Qur’an: “When the sacred months are passed, kill those who join other gods wherever you find them, and seize them, beleaguer them and lie in wait for them with every kind of ambush But if they convert and observe prayer and pay the obligatory alms, then let them go their way.”


 Is the typical Muslim even able to read the Qur’an? Fact is, as with most Christians, the majority of Muslims are ignorant of what their holy book actually teaches. Though some may have an idea regarding its message, the majority are led about by their leaders like lambs to slaughter. Most people cannot understand the Qur’an, because it is in Arabic and they are told you have to understand the Qur’an in Arabic or you don’t understand what it’s saying at all. For all the Muslim nations that are not Arab, such as Iran, the Muslims must learn the language and study the Qur’an in Arabic. Most won’t put forth the effort.

Here a short video from a former Muslim: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxzOVSMUrGM

 

Does God love Muslims?

Of COURSE He does. The vast majority are wonderful, loving, hospitable people who, like the rest of us, must trust Jesus ALONE for their salvation. We must differentiate between these people and those who have yielded to the spirit of jihad and resist the tendency to prejudge every Middle-Eastern person. Typically, once a person yields to the Islamic spirit, they fall within the grasp of a very vengeful, hateful, demonic, Spirit of Death.

 The Good News?

As Islamic terrorism grips the nations, a confident, peaceful Kingdom of God people will be given the Divine opportunity to tell the world about our source of peace amidst the Islamic storm. This is exactly how Reza Safa, an ex-radical Muslim from Iran was saved through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We can tell them about what it is we’ve found through the intimacy of our personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

You DO have that type of relationship with Him, don’t you?

    Very perceptive and clear article John. Well done
    As a missionary and minister in Asia, Africa, India and Australia I can speak with authority that the followers of Islam are the first victims of Islam and Muhammed’s false claims to divine inspirtion and the subsequent 14 centuries have borne out the truth of that from what it has inspired in it’s followers. No nation on earth that has any advanced society is Islamic, no university that rates as worthwhile studying in is Islamic, no social movements for justice, honour, truth, love or compassion are Islamic. It is the Judaeo Chritian Ideals, set forth by Christ, that give sinful humanity it’s greatest model of social values, cohesive compassion and inventive industry, as Christ extolls the virtues of Loving God and Loving our neighbours, therefore valuing the infinite worth of all and the pursuit of everything worthwhile together..
    I have found that exploring the Qu’ran with a Muslim eventually leads them to the same conclusion any intelligent person arrives at, that Muhammed was duplicit in deceiving people, as he said “Allah is the greatest of all deceivers”. This is taken from Sura 3:54, as explored by the excellent website; http://www.answering-islam.org,
    The specific page is pasted here….
    http://www.answering-islam.org/Shamoun/allah_best_deceiver.htm,
    Where it states;
    “The Quran describes Allah as the best deceiver there is, a liar who is not above using the same evil and wicked schemes of his opponents.
    For example, the Quran calls Allah a makr, in fact the best makr there is:
    But they (the Jews) were deceptive, and Allah was deceptive, for Allah is the best of deceivers (Wamakaroo wamakara Allahu waAllahu khayru al-makireena)! S. 3:54; cf. 8:30
    Other texts that identify Allah as a makr include:
    Are they then secure from Allah’s deception (makra Allahi)? None deemeth himself secure from Allah’s deception (makra Allahi) save folk that perish. S. 7:99
    So they schemed a scheme: and We schemed a scheme (Wamakaroo makran wamakarna makran), while they perceived not. S. 27:50
    The word for deception/deceiver/scheme is makr. The lexical sources define the term as:
    Miim-Kaf-Ra = To practice deceit or guile or circumvention, practice evasion or elusion, to plot, to exercise art or craft or cunning, act with policy, practice stratagem.”

    If we are to free Muslims from the tyranny of 14 centuries of deception, we have to first understand where it arises from and how best to explore this with them, the Holy Spirit will enlighten their minds as we take the time to really know their worldview and show how God is not Allah, but He is real and there for them…
