You’re Not Afraid
The world is telling Christians that they must be blindly tolerant of all things or they are haters. If we are intolerant of radical Muslims we are put in our place by a bully mentality and told we have islamophobia. I don’t have to tolerate everything that crosses my path or that you or others think I should tolerate.
When Jesus wrote to the church of Thyatira he rebuked them for their tolerance of a person, a teaching and way of life that was clearly against scripture. I don’t have to understand or tolerate Radical Islam or Sharia law.
I am not afraid of, scared of or hate anyone. However, I am required to take a stand against those teachings and tolerances, that plague, divide and destroy the people of God.
Before all this radical Muslim, satanic advance started I was preparing my children for just such a time. For their entire lives, I never hid the fact that WE ARE CHRISTIANS and the battle was coming. They are not afraid and they are caring for their families for Last Days Living, and at the same time living prosperous godly lives.
I want you to have a clear understanding of how Islamic Radicals turned so swiftly in our lifetime.
Why did a people who America had helped drive Russia out of its country turn so quickly? One reason and only one reason is these Islamic leaders saw America as the central power of Christianity. In their mind, Christianity is THE ARCHENEMY. This hatred and battle will never end until the last victory of Islam, which will never happen. Only a fool will profess this is not a religious war.
By returning to Sharia law, radical Islam can draw a line against the West (Christians & Jews). Everything about the West they view as Christian, all that we find valuable they hate; democracy, transparency, the rule of law, human rights, the separation of religion from governments are all discredited in the eyes of the jihadis(Wayne Grudem; Politics according to the bible). I’m teaching you all this so that you have a sound response either in your own mind or when people are attempting to discredit the truth that this is a battle between satan and the Jews and satan and Christians.
On August 11, 1988 a few months before the final withdrawal of Soviet forces from Afghanistan in 1989, bin Laden and other leaders of the Arab resistance had a meeting and decided to form an organization called al-Qaeda, meaning (The Base) that it would be The Base for the hoped for future society that would implement strict Islamic rule, destroy Jews and Christians. When you hear politicians say this is not a religious war, you can shake your head because that’s all it is. It may not be for us, but it is for Islam.
This whole blame America doctrine blame the west is a fouled up and ridiculous lie created by fools. It’s like blaming the holocaust on the Jewish people. The real reason Radical Islamist attack America is born out of a want to create an Islamic State and destroy Jews & Christians. It’s important that we understand the background. These attacks are not caused by people experiencing poverty or oppression in poor nations. This was started and is maintained by well-educated upper class, largely college-educated mostly wealthy men. (Wayne Grudem: politics according to the bible)
The underlying truth is satan is attacking the women and her offspring,(The Church) according to Revelation 12.
Revelation 12:14- “Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.”
Radical Islam vs Peaceful Islam
Revelation 20:4, NIV, “And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They[a] had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands.”
Who would have predicted that beheading would be the Last Days popular means of executing Christians? The bible says that there will be a large group of Last Days Christians who have been beheaded and would await under the Throne of God until the rest of their brothers and sisters receive the same sentence.
So are there peaceful Muslims? Yes, but I am going to borrow from a response that I heard by Bridgette Gabriel.
“There are peaceful Muslims in the world that simply want to live their lives just like you and want their children to live peaceful and successful lives. The problem is not the peaceful Muslims but the radical Muslims. There are 1.2 billion Muslims, not all are radical. The radicals are 15-25% according to all intelligence reports around the world. That leaves 75% who are relatively peaceful people.
25% are 180-300 million people who are dedicated to the destruction of western civilization. that is the size of the United states. So why should we be concerned about the 15-25%? Because it’s the radicals that kill, it is the radicals that enforce their will upon people and will stop at nothing including the murder and massacre of their own people to get what they want. Most Germans were peaceful and the Nazis slaughtered their own people who stood in the way. and as a result of the radical germans 60 million people died. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.
When you look at Russia, most Russians were peaceful as well, but the radical Russians killed 20 million, the peaceful majority were irrelevant. China, most Chinese were peaceful people, yet the Radical Chinese were able to kill 70 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. The Japanese were peaceful people as well, but the radicals were able to butcher their way across southeast Asia killing 12 million people killing them mostly with bayonets and shovels. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.
September 11 we had 2.3 million Muslims in the United States and it took 19 radical Muslims to bring America to its knees killing over 3,000 Americans. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.
Where were the Germans, Russians, Chinese, Japanese and American Muslims during these times? They quietly let these things happen, the peaceful majority is irrelevant. So don’t talk to me about the peaceful loving Muslims. My history teaches me that we have not learned from the past and we are PRESENTLY making the same mistakes. The peaceful Muslims are irrelevant and are remaining quiet and I don’t care why. All of our politicking and all our political correctness in America is not doing us one bit of good.”
We cannot defeat this enemy through weapons of warfare, you cannot defeat an ideology through understanding their plight.
Russia threw in the towel and have adopted democracy, “sort of” the communist ideals are prospering all over the world. Canada just voted in a socialistic, communistic form of government. The dictatorship of Russia is still in control.
Germany was decimated in WW2 but the hatred for jews is on the rise today. Islam has been around for nearly 1500 years. It is not going away. We cannot defeat an ideology through military opposition or political activism.
So what is our response to Islam because it is growing, it is racing toward you. Radical Islam is not taking a vacation or some downtime it is moving fast and furious to decimate the Jewish and Christian populations.
What is the churches response?
The people who we know who are outside of believing faith need Jesus. People that are nominal need Jesus, people that are backslidden need Jesus.
So we can pray, we can pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are personally affected by this radical Muslim advance. There are organizations we can give to in order to help them. We can pray for those who are backslidden, nominal or unbelieving. We can embrace those that live here and do everything in our power through prayer and action to draw people into an ever closer relationship with Jesus.
And we can become equally radical and propagate true Christianity.
