UI – Part 328 – A Christian Awakening Needed
To all in the world who are loved by God and called to be his people.
1400 Year Holy War
There is a holy war taking place. It has been underway without interruption for 1400 years. Attempts to curb the advances have enjoyed success and failure. Until the mid-1900’s Islam’s attempt to take Europe All-for-Allah and the Law of Shari’a was thwarted. We can be thankful for Pope Urban II’s decision, which he felt was vitally necessary, to have an army of Christ followers blessed in an effort to curb the advances of the Saladin’s army and displace Muslims from holy places in existence well before the dawn of the militant barbaric example of Muhammad. Muhammad emerged from the desert sands of the Arabian Peninsula as a whirling cloud of spinning sand particles. He settled as both an oasis for a new tribe and pit of quicksand for those that expressed dissent for his bad behavior; those who he hated. The Crusades mounted by the vassals of Christ lasted less than 200 years – ending in failure.
Morning Has Come – Time to Awake
As the cup of truth of the saving grace of Jesus Christ is being spilled as blood, the acts of Islam’s warriors beheading, dismembering and brutalizing to extirpate all but devout Muslims, Christians must awake from their stupor and publicly proclaim their faith. They have been asleep, complacent, for too long. Church attendance is down and if you believe and avoid worship services and the company of other believers, you are allowing personal idols to replace God as your priority. The doors of the Cathedrals are ajar and many now open to Muslims as mosques. There are many new places of Islam worship where Allah is now preaching and teaching in the West. The words heard are ‘death to the infidel and hatred towards Jews and Christians’ until all earthly territory is his. For Jews and Christians the Quran offers the option to be taxed, bow to the superior Muslim and pay, or die. Protection is provided until the overseers of the State of Islam deem otherwise. For Europeans and other free nations the invasion has begun, surreptitiously, and is gaining from an indirect attack, when in the past the direct attacks failed. Welfare received by Muslims is gleefully accepted as by infidels paying the jizya.
The Train of Reality
ISIS is not Hollywood. The entity, ideology and blood is real. This is not a story being told, but history in the making. It is like a lengthy train. The engine is an ideology powered by diesel produced from oil spewing from the underground and land from whence Muhammad was born. The caboose is black. A flag flies as it passes with the Shahadah in white on a field of black. In its path is destruction, smoke and dust billowing from the aftermath of doom imparted by Islam’s human element. Inside the caboose is the Scripture of Islam, thousands of pages of Hadith’s and sayings, the Reliance of the Traveller, and writings of Maududi, Sayd, Wahhab, Bin Laden along with scholars spouting the fighting expressions and the time has come.
The make-up of the length of this moving doomsday machine are passenger and cargo cars, currently 56 or 57, adding more as they bloody new cities and towns and dominate the people, converting them to their Law, voluntarily on not. The added vehicle has doors locked, wide-eyes peering from the windows, despair on the faces, and mostly women and children occupying the seats. The new car is watched carefully by those ahead and behind. Where light once shone the darkness of imperialism suddenly appears, death, destruction, oppression and poverty, as exemplified by those areas previously subdued over the past 1400 miles of the Muslim Zepher, follows and the slaves are carried off.
It is a circus train. All passengers are to obey the conductor and proceed as a whole to the same destination. The barker, his lengthy whip readily used as a flogging tool, dictates compliance, his carnival police always observing and prepared to address any deviation from their Law. Hearing or feeling the crack of the lash or the penetration of the knout announces an independent mind has doubted or questioned the lifestyle requirements. Any attempt to jump from the moving vessel, even if not aboard willingly, will be subject to the wrath of the Prophet-ticketmaster, his example applied, the punishment severe and the outcome deadly. As a beast under the tent the cast will be of one nature, one mind, and one way to live. “Or die” – It is a proclamation always in the wind.
The diesel stench belching locomotion of terror cannot be stopped. It has traveled too far. It may be contained, but annihilation, needed yes, but possible, doubtful. Headed towards lands where incredulity, ignorance of the reality of this death cult, and optimism that such evil cannot exist, the train will soon arrive. Welcoming will be persons who care not to understand Islam. Included in the greeting committee are advance squads of subversive groups that prefer Shari’a to a constitution for everyone. They will seek to add to their numbers with a majority objective. The advance team will help to convince the welcoming committee they are to allow the Zephyr to proceed. The Media will be pliable and facilitate, knowingly or as an obtuse reporter. Those not aboard today, however, will be tomorrow, or they will die. This logic fuels the man whose hand is on the throttle, a follower of the evil self-titled conductor. If they are short of diesel they know the fat of the captives can be used instead as it is the flame of fear that propels.
Welcome or Resist
A crowd stands firm carrying banners calling for awareness, their public appeal looked at with disdain. Wanting others to see they are condemned as provocateurs. In the crosshairs of the sights of weapons of mass execution, attached to the engine yet unseen, they attempt to appeal. They pray. They are mocked. The war machine proceeds with only rhetoric trying to apply the breaks. But as tissue paper the rhetoric is easily penetrated and the ideological progression continues. Cries to call this moving monster what it is are met with politically correct tepid responses and appeasement. When the responses are heard by the engineers there is laughter and comfort that their forward movement will not find enough resistance to be of concern. One of those at the barricades peeks over hearing a belly laugh as a bullet penetrates their forehead; a serpent standing tall in a black tunic holds the Kalashnikov with more brass encased lead pellets ready to kill the next to rise up. The laughter continues, more the cackle of a hyena than joy.
History repeats itself. Other demonic army caravans have been curtailed. But the advances of this new stealth da’wa Zephyr from the trash of past vanquished arenas, the horn blaring Allahu Akbar as it proceeds, is creating the fear it desires so it can transform remaining verdant gardens into the black hole of evil which is Allah’s creation. The artistry of this cabal is more like an infant spreading its feces on a wall, yet they call the completed work paradise.
Love Trumps Hatred
Christian love can trump Islam’s hatred. More as a benevolent hero, a strong man for the glory of freedom, willing to resist and be victorious, and not feeling guilty when there is triumph over the oppressor. The Christian community must become the barrier between the evil of Islam and the love of freedom. Evangelize believers and others to take their heart for the Lord into their districts and bring others along to worship and pray together in an established or restored church or cathedral. Encourage the planting of new centers for the children of God. Families must discuss matters frankly and with concern as well as awareness. Join hands. Follow the example of Christ. Go public with what you believe. The private heart for God is worthy, but concerns about exposure as a Christian must be erased. There is no reason not to be proud of your faith in God. The Lord gives Christians the power to overcome. Share the gospel. It speaks not of war. It does defend the faith. Do not be ashamed of the gospel , as Paul said, “it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes.” (Rom 1:16)
“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth of their wickedness….” (Rom 1:18) “God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice…they invent ways of doing evil, they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy… they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” (Rom 1:28-32) Even the Quran states that Allah is the Best of Deceivers.
God will protect his people. But fighting back is permitted. Stop the train. Go back to your church. Lead the way for others to follow. Accept freedom and not a theocratic society. Know we all sin and are subject to temptation. The test is in how we embrace the Lord voluntarily, not under the coercive whip of an autocrat or self-styled maniacal servant of satan. Seek to live under a constitution that is for others as well as you.
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” (2 Corinthians 3:17) “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by the yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1) “Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom.” (James 2:12)
People are slaves to whatever they have allowed to master them.
Grace and Peace.
