….or what Muslims really believe.
Let me preface his by saying that the vast majority of Muslims I have interacted with have been kind and gracious. Here in the twin cities we have a huge population of Somali Muslims. I personally have observed them to be loving parents, respectful, polite, etc. I don’t have a problem with Muslims at all. I see them as people that God dearly loves and wants us to reach with the Gospel. Ok now that the disclaimer is out of the way 😉 lets get to it….
First off, wherever there is Islam there is the strong possibility of radicalization and terrorism. We have it here. Just this last week Somali Muslims were calling for a devastating attack on our very own Mall of America (I practically grew up there! jk…kind of) which is like 45 minutes from my house. Minnesota has the distinction of exporting radicalized young Muslim men to the killing fields of ISIS. Local restaurants are removing pork anything from menus to accommodate the population that thinks pigs are evil and don’t want anyone to enjoy some ribs or bacon.
My heart broke reading about the 21 young Coptic Christians murdered and martyred for their faith by these extremists. I feel it in my spirit- this great evil is growing and expanding rapidly. They are the great evil of our time- raping, murdering, terrorizing wherever they go. We need to understand it. We need to pray against it. It is spreading. If we think we can ignore it and not be affected, we are dead wrong. Burying our heads in the sand (ALA the World while Germany was slaughtering Jews) is not the answer.
They (the extremists) have a message for us. It won’t stop. They want our blood spilt. The want the cross of Christ shattered. The don’t want freedom anywhere for anyone. It isn’t enough to turn the Middle East into Hell on Earth. They want to spread their evil around the globe.
The video (of the martyring of the Egyptians Christians) was entitled “A Message Signed With Blood to the Nation of the Cross.” This is a threat directed at all who identify with the Cross of Christ. Make no mistake, this is a religious war on Christianity.
The lead executioner said, “We will fight you until Christ descends, breaks the cross and kills the pig.”
He is talking about teachings out of the Koran itself. They believe that the Jihad (terrorism) will bring about the appearance of the Muslim Savior. http://www.answering-islam.org/Quran/Themes/jihad_passages.html It is in the Koran. Murdering Christians, Jews and infidels is a key tenant of the Muslim faith. Fact.
“Therefore let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world’s life for the hereafter; and whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward. …fight in the way of Allah… Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the way of the Satan. Fight therefore against the friends of the Satan… …when fighting is prescribed for them…Our Lord! why hast Thou ordained fighting for us?…” Excerpt K 4:074-077
To the faithful Muslim WE are ‘friends of Satan’ and they are to fight us to the death. The terrorists are being faithful to obey the words of Mohammed.
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah…nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection….. …slay the idolaters wherever you find them…take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush…” Excerpt K 9:005
This is exactly what the ISIS goons are doing. They aren’t deviants from Islam. They are Islam.
Allah’s apostle was asked, “What is the best deed?” He replied, “To believe in Allah and his Apostle.” The questioner then asked, “What is the next?” He replied, “To participate in Jihad in Allah’s cause.” (Hadith vol. 1, no. 25).
For those who aren’t aware- Jihad is them killing us…and subjugating, raping, torturing, pillaging, etc.
From top Islamist leaders- Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud declared: “We shall never call for or accept a negotiated peace. We shall only accept war – Jihad – the holy war. We resolve to drench the lands of Palestine and Arabia with the blood of the infidels or to accept martyrdom for the glory of Allah”. “We shall export our revolution, to the whole world. Until the cry ‘Allah Akbar’ resounds over the whole world. There will be struggle. There will be Jihad . . . Islam is the religion of militant individuals . . . Islam will be victorious in all the countries of the world, and Islam and the teachings of the Quran will prevail all over the world . . . This is the duty that all Muslims must fullfil . . .” Ayatollah Khomeini Source: http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religions/Islamic%20Muslim/islam_beliefs.htm
Every time there is another terrorist attack our President goes out and babbles about Islam being a religion of peace and apologizes to the misunderstood Muslims and blah blah blah. We all need to wake up to the obvious truth here. Clearly Islam is a religion of war and bloodshed. Their definition of ‘peace’ is complete tyrannical Islamist rule. So in that sense, yes, they are striving for ‘peace’.
I know this post is sure to ruffle some feathers. The truth usually does. Please join me in praying against the great evil of Islamic extremism. Let’s pray for protection for their would-be victims. Let’s pray that the Holy Spirit would break through their demonic religious fervor and show them the truth. That God is clearly seen in the face of Christ. Colossians 1:15 God is love. 1 John 4:8 Jesus is the only way to Heaven aka paradise. John 14:6
