Prophecy Update 2015-12-13

Sunday, 13 December 2015

-For today’s prophecy update I will calmly present the Biblical truth in response to the continuing lies concerning what Islam is. -I say calmly chiefly because I recently purchased a blood pressure machine, which I check daily to make sure I’m doing okay. -Actually, I’m serious that I check it every day, and you’ll be happy to know my blood pressure is in the normal range of 120/80.

Be that as it may, I would like to draw your attention to President Obama's address to the nation last Sunday, in the wake of the San Bernardino Islamic terror attack and the so-called war on ISIS. Quoting the President -“The victims were brutally murdered and injured by one of their coworkers and his wife. So far, we have no evidence that the killers were directed by a terrorist organization overseas, or that they were part of a broader conspiracy here at home. But it is clear that the two of them had gone down the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West. … We cannot turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam. That, too, is what groups like ISIL want. ISIL does not speak for Islam. … Muslim leaders here and around the globe have to continue working with us to decisively and unequivocally reject the hateful ideology that groups like ISIL and al Qaeda promote; to speak out against not just acts of violence, but also those interpretations of Islam that are incompatible with the values of religious tolerance, mutual respect, and human dignity. … We were founded upon a belief in human dignity --that no matter who you are, or where you come from, or what you look like, or what religion you practice, you are equal in the eyes of God and equal in the eyes of the law.”

-In the interest of time I’ve condensed and organized these excerpts into 4 questions, which are as follows in no particular order.

Question #1 Have so-called radicalized Muslims embraced a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America? Question #2 Does ISIS (the President only refers to as ISIL, which is the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant), speak for Islam? Question #3 Are interpretations of Islam incompatible with the values of religious tolerance, mutual respect, and human dignity? Question #4 Is it true that we’re all equal in the eyes of God regardless of what religion we practice, whether Muslim or Christian?

-Perhaps you’ll indulge me as I quickly quote directly from the Qur’an citing chapter and verse so as to answer these questions.

Qur’an 2:191 -"…kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out…”

Qur’an 9:123 -"O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."

Qur’an 5:33 -"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger …is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned…

Qur’an 8:12 -"I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them" 

Qur’an 9:29 "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."

Qur’an 8:39 Make war on them until idolatry is no more and Allah's religion reigns supreme

Qur’an 47:4 -When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then when you have made wide slaughter among them…

Qur’an 4:76 "Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…"

Qur’an 48:25 Muslims are harsh against the unbelievers, merciful to one another.

Qur’an 8:67 It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he has made slaughter in the land.

Qur’an 9:2-3 Allah will humble the unbelievers. …Proclaim a woeful punishment to the unbelievers.

Qur’an 9:5 …slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them.

Qur’an 9:41 Whether unarmed or well-equipped, march on and fight for the cause of Allah, with your wealth and your persons.

Qur’an 9:73 …make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites. Be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is hell…

Qur’an 66:9 Prophet! Make war on the unbelievers …and deal sternly with them. Hell shall be their home, evil their fate.

Qur’an 5:54 -O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other….

Qur’an 3:151 "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah…

Qur’an 4:89 "…take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks."

Qur’an 98:51 unbelievers among the People of the Book…shall burn forever in the fire of hell. They are the vilest of all creatures.

-I would submit, the answer to the aforementioned questions is abundantly clear; it’s not a perversion of Islam, this is pure Islam. -Moreover, ISIS not only speaks for Islam, their interpretation of Islam is correctly intolerant, with no respect for human dignity. -Lastly, the question of all being equal in the eyes of God regardless of what religion we practice, this is how Jesus answered it:

John 14:6 (NIV) — 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
