“I will bring a sword on you, executing the vengeance of the covenant…” (Leviticus 26:25).
Despite the dreadfulness of events occurring around the world, the West still does not seem to know the hour of its visitation. More particularly, the nominal Christian world is in some kind of stupor, one in which it cannot discern the signs of the times rushing upon it with a vengeance. Why is it so blind, so insensitive to the vicious menace that stares it in the face? Why can it not see the obvious? The answer is sin. Sin desensitizes, blinds, deafens and deadens. More specifically, more than a billion people have taken upon themselves the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ in vain. They have professed to believe in Him, to love and worship Him, but their hearts are far from Him and they do not care.
Hypocrisy covers them as a large hooded cloak, from head to toe.
Around the world, wherever we find Jesus Christ’s Name in use, there is every sin known to man in practice. The worst offenders are the most religious ones, the more “pious” ones. The more religious they are, the worse they are. Hypocrisy covers them as a large hooded cloak, from head to toe. They sin in every way, in mind and heart, if not in the flesh, in adultery, fornication, homosexuality, pedophilia, pornography, sexual perversions of every sort, lies, fraud, theft, blasphemies, drugs, drunkenness, tyranny, murder, genocide, blackmail, treachery, destruction, idolatry, pollution, and every kind of lawlessness known to man. They claim their sins to be “under the blood,” forgiven by God because Christ died on the cross for them. Instead of, “Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die,” the motto is, “Eat, drink, be merry, and do anything you please, because the tab is covered, and we will live forever.” The former motto was evil enough; the latter is greater still.
We have just seen the destruction of New Orleans and surrounding areas, which came because of the crime and debauchery countenanced and approved by America and the world. Lo and behold, the ungodly Mardi Gras Festival continues. Do they learn? Obviously, they do not. But who does? Let me ask the fans of the Olympics. As I write, the world stages the Olympics in Turin, Italy. Here we have a reveling and exaltation of the flesh. So you can ski to the bottom of a slope at a super speed, above all others. So what? You spend your youth training for it and in a few years, you will not be able to do so.
While you are the fastest, or the strongest, or the best trained, do you excel in virtues of importance to God? Goliath was a giant warrior, frightening the entire Israelite army. What good did it do? Was David as big and as strong? David’s strength was in his faith in God, in his desire for righteousness. His godly strengths overcame the strengths of the flesh. Goliath, the mighty Olympic champion, bit the dust. Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Savior of the world, became known as the “Son of David.”
While the Olympics are a show of carnal, earthly strength and skill, God is looking for genuine faith and holiness. Are the Olympics any better than the Mardi Gras? Are not both products of the flesh, which, according to the Word of God, is at enmity with Him? How is it that the world is so intent on spending hundreds of millions of dollars and hours of energy showing off, when there are millions of needy people starving to death, homeless people, and millions of victims dying of AIDS? How is it that the world considers a 9.7-second, one hundred yard dash more important than helping fellow man? What does it accomplish?
How many other activities are there in America that are contemned by God?
Furthermore, are the assessments of merit just and true? What is fair competition? People can cheat and get away with it, winning medals without true merit. Can anyone be sure the winners are fair and honest? Even if not cheating, what about attitude? Can we tell who had the better attitude, which we hypocritically proclaim is more important? Are medals awarded for good attitude or faith, without which, the Bible says, it is impossible to please God?
What is fair? People come from varying backgrounds of determinative circumstances and conditions. What about race? Are not blacks superior in certain physical capabilities, and thus in the performance of many sports? How is it then fair to pit a Caucasian against a black? How often does one see a white world champion boxer or sprinter? What is fair?
Could it be that Israel, the chosen nation of God, was chastened by Him at Munich, more than other nations, because God is not pleased with Israel participating in the pagan activities? Could it be that God has much better things for them than to copy the world’s ways? Certainly!
While one can cheat in sports, one cannot cheat in faith. Faith produces the fruits according to its strength and quality. The spirit and work of the Olympics is abomination to God. The whole thing is a charade, a vanity of utmost proportions. It is little different from the debauchery of the Mardi Gras, an event identified with worshipping God, a religious event of the Roman Catholic Church’s making and tacit sanction. Oh, how wicked!
How many other activities are there in America that are contemned by God? What about the vain activities of “Monster Trucks,” bodybuilding, “tummy-tucking,” facelifts, abortions, the proliferation of gambling casinos, drugs, the vanities of many sports, and the indulgence of every pleasure imaginable, costly or otherwise, while millions perish in poverty, disease and starvation around the world? What about the sexual perversions in the churches? What about the corruption, fraud, embezzlement, theft and deceit of every form in governments and business entities? How often does one see an honest commercial on television? It is rare.
What about all the false religion, the hypocritical professions of faith in Christ, with churches in His Name on many streets in many cities, towns and villages? What about all the vileness on television and the internet? What about the egotistic, vain and ridiculous pursuits as American Idol or Survivor or Fear Factor? Is not the world mad? Can God allow it to remain that way? Can it be sustained on its own, even if God did not do anything? How can a self-destructive mechanism abide?
In comes the judgment and scourge of God, approaching swiftly, murderously.
Many revile us because of our messages of truth and call to faith and godliness, who would not be offended if some get-rich-quick scheme or pornography were sent to them unsolicited. There is violence on every side, from every quarter, and people love to have it so. It is no different than it was in Noah’s day. The word “violence” in Genesis has the meaning of “unjust gain.” Does that sound familiar?
In comes the judgment and scourge of God, approaching swiftly, stealthily, deceptively, determinedly, murderously, mercilessly, uncompromisingly, with a zeal not common, the kind that possesses those who would fulfill their intended mission to gladly spill their own blood if necessary. They are a vicious people whose goal is nothing less than total world domination. In their minds, they cannot lose. If they live, they conquer and plunder; if they die, they enter bliss with every lustful desire fulfilled… beautiful gardens, wining, dining, women and song. In life, they have the praise of their people and their spiritual leaders. In death, they have their virgins, banquetings, and eternal bliss. How can they lose? I speak with tongue in cheek.
How can those standing on the other side win? Fearful for their lives, comforts, rights, and privileges, those confronted are left with three choices: become a Muslim, become the slave of a Muslim, or die. There is no other alternative.
My, aren’t their god and prophet nice, peaceful, and loving? Have Westerners any idea what the Koran (Qu’ran) teaches? Is the Muslim religion indeed a religion of love and peace as Muslims claim? (See Appendix and Islam: Neither Good nor Godly.) Let me solemnly declare to you today that the Koran is in perfect enmity with the Bible and represents anything but peace and love. Do not take my word for it. Read it. The Koran sets itself in diametrical opposition to “the people of the Book (Bible),” meaning Jews and Christians. The Koran preaches conquest by sword. It teaches the breaking of contracts and agreements, sanctioned by Allah, if those agreements were made with infidels, that is, non-Muslims, which means that if they sign a contract with you, and you have kept your end of the bargain, they do not have to keep theirs. Convenient? I’ll say! Especially when their god approves. They walk away with the free goods and a clear conscience.
Muslims are committed to the subjugation or eradication of the “Saturday people” and of the “Sunday people.” All who name the Name of Christ or God of the Jews are infidels to the Muslims, along with every other non-Muslim, but especially “Christians” and Jews. They are obligated to oppose and even kill, if necessary, all infidels. They intend to do it. You say, “Those are the extremists, of which there are but few.” In reply, I ask you, “Do they not all read the same Koran?” Yes, they do, and the Koran teaches those very things that the extremists are doing. The extremists are more faithful to the Koran than are the “moderates.” Furthermore, when these passages are pointed out in the Koran by the powerful ayatollahs and mullahs, the young moderates are inclined to do their duty and become “extremists,” especially with the alleged rewards proffered or promised them.
The Muslims are here because of the sins of the West and of nominal Christianity.
Look at the fruits. How is it that if there are so few “extremists,” that they can be so present all over the world in huge numbers? Where does one see Jews and Christians blowing themselves up and burning down mosques? Where does one see laws framed in Western countries to forbid or restrain the Muslim religion? Nominal Christians are confronted with all sorts of punishments, including death, for preaching and proselytizing in Muslim-governed countries. Around the world, particularly in Africa, Muslim countries, and Asia, they are being slaughtered, and churches and synagogues are being destroyed. Westerners are kidnapped, held for ransom, and beheaded.
Are there protests and demonstrations by the West against such atrocities? Not at all. Draw one silly cartoon, and the Muslims riot, burn embassies and kill all over the world. If the Muslims publicly behead a few Westerners, the West is fearful, turns a blind eye, tries to appease and compromise, or tries to reason and make peace. Does it succeed in its approach? If the answer is “yes,” then why is the Muslim menace growing in intensity? Why are the Twin Towers no longer? Why are Iran and other Muslim countries, organizations and individuals preaching death and destruction? How is it that homegrown British citizens of the Muslim religion are ready and able to kill their fellow Britons indiscriminately, with no respect of age, sex, religion or any other factor? How is it they are publicly declaring hatred and death for Israel and America? Do we find Americans and Jews dancing and raging in the streets, shouting for the blood of a cartoonist and his country, and for all countries sympathetic to his?
Why are the Muslims coming, and now in the door? They are here because of the sins of the West and because of the sins of nominal Christianity. It is God’s judgment. Better to be hot or cold than lukewarm, says Jesus. The Muslims are freezing cold, pretending to be hot, and they will annihilate the lukewarm that have no stomach for right. When we try to preach the truth to people on our website and in The Issues of Life, we are mocked, reviled, scorned, cursed, hated, abused, censored, threatened, rejected, despised, and condemned. The majority of those to whom we send mail do so. We know that we preach the truth and way to life. We know that we do the will of God. We know that we preach not to condemn, though our preaching condemns those who cling to their darkness and their sins. We preach to warn, to save, and to prevent that which will happen if they do not listen. They are not listening.
War, terrorism, suffering, and death are on the steps of America.
North America has had relative peace in its recent history. Yes, it has fought in the great wars, in Korea, Vietnam, in the Middle East, and somewhat in other places, but its own soil has remained relatively peaceful. God has been merciful. But He is finished winking. Who will escape? Now we have the torch-lighting ceremony of the Twin Towers of the great city of the United States, New York, to begin the bloodletting and burning of America (Canada included).
You can’t imagine it happening, can you? I am sorry to have to be the bearer of news that is not pleasing at all. It is horrible news. It is close to the worst news you will want to receive. War, terrorism, suffering, and death are on the steps of America. Europe, too, is on the agenda. Take the bombs in Spain and England, and the Paris riots and 2015 attack, for examples. God is no longer winking at the wickedness, the hardheartedness of so-called God-loving Christians, of atheists, humanists, New Agers, ecumenists, Catholics, Mormons, “Jehovah’s Witnesses,” Seventh Day Adventists, socialists, democrats, evolutionists, and every other kind of self-righteous, misinformed, willingly ignorant entity contrary to God. The harlot church is about to undergo, and is already undergoing, the beating of its life. Would you believe destruction?
A logical question forms: If the Muslim scourge is directed toward sinners, then why is it that the greatest vehemence is focused on Jews? Are they the greatest sinners of all? No, and yes. On the one hand, we are all guilty of the blood of Jesus Christ, Gentile and Jew alike. We are all sinners and have all been judged guilty by God. Jews are guilty, just as Luther and Hitler said, but Luther and Hitler were both as guilty as Judas. We are all guilty. On that point, the Bible is very clear. Ask me why Luther did not know that. My answer is that Luther did not have the Spirit of God. Had he had the Spirit, he would not have been able to attack and vilify Jews or anyone else. While he came out of the Catholic Church, the Catholic Church did not entirely come out of him.
On the other hand, like it or not, debate it or not, the Jews are the chosen people and nation of God. Yes, God cast them off and turned to the Gentiles, but the Bible also makes it very clear that God is going to save the Jews when all is said and done:
“And so all Israel shall be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer shall come out of Zion, and He shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins'” (Romans 11:26-27 EMTV).
From what other nation did the Messiah come? From where did the Bible come, if not from the Jews? What other book compares to the Bible? What other nation has been restored in the world after destruction and 2000 years of dispersion throughout the world, back to its original territory, if only in part…for now? That is what the Bible calls the “new birth” or being “born again.” It is also written:
“As regards to the gospel, they are enemies for your sake; but as regards to election, they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now you were shown mercy through their disobedience, even so these now were disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also might be shown mercy. For God has shut up all to disobedience, that He might show mercy to all. Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and untraceable are His ways! ‘For who has known the mind of the LORD? Or who has been His counselor?’ ‘Or who has first given to Him, and it shall be repaid to him?’ For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things; to Him be the glory forever! Amen” (Romans 11:28-36 EMTV).
God uses them as instruments of chastening His people.
Because the Jews are God’s chosen in this world, God requires more from them. Because they have known the things of God more than has any other nation, being the bearers of the Covenant and the Law and the Messiah, they are the more responsible. “To whom much is given, much is required.” The Jews have taken and will take the greater chastening, but I solemnly and thankfully guarantee you, by the Word of God, that when the Lord is done chastening His people, whereas they were the last, they will be first; whereas they were the tail, they will be the head; whereas they were hated and despised and destroyed, they will be loved and honored and saved, and their enemies will be hated, despised and destroyed. He has hardened the hearts of those who hate Israel that He might destroy them. It will happen. Even now, where is Saddam Hussein, for example? Where is Iraq? Watch these things unfold. God uses them as instruments of chastening His people, then He casts aside those instruments into the fire.
Here is God’s promise for Hitler (already fulfilled) and for all enemies of the Jews, including the Muslims: “I will bless them that bless you and I will curse them that curse you.”
I constantly look for the Jews to be better and to do better, but all they do is copy the world, worship its gods, and live in all ways as do the Gentiles. Shame on the Jews! Shame on Israel! Though you are no worse than the rest, you are not any better, which you ought to be, and therefore your sin is greater. Your sin being greater, your punishment is greater. Yet your God will deliver you along with everyone else.
I must mention yet one more great sin of the West. It has hypocritically criticized Israel, demanding that Israel show restraint while being bludgeoned ruthlessly within and without its borders. No nation suffers the contradiction imposed upon it as does Israel. Now how does America react when it is attacked? All the firepower comes out in the name of “justice.” Yes, how righteous of America, how righteous! (Though my mouth is closed, you can see my tongue touching my cheek.)
We are by no means the first to say the things I have said in this paper. Many have seen and heard the obscenities of religion in the Name of Christ. Many have protested the ungodliness of America, and those warnings and rebukes have gone unheeded. And when preachers who are greatly loved by America and Europe stand to speak, what do they preach? They preach pity and peace. Billy Graham could only condemn Al Qaeda and its violence in New York. Did he preach against the cause of that tragedy? Did he even know the cause of that event? Did he recognize the chastening hand of God? The cause is America’s sins and its hypocrisy, its decadent lifestyle, its pride and arrogance, its wealth at the cost of others. Why did Billy Graham not call for repentance, informing America that unless it repented, there would be hell to pay? It is because Billy Graham, Benny Hinn and thousands of other preachers are all in whoredoms before God…all of them. It is all about appearances, feeling good, men thinking they are “covering a multitude of sins with love,” while scratching backs, tickling ears, valuing men’s praise, winking at one another’s sins, worshipping worship in the Name of God. “Every man is doing that which is right in his own eyes.” It is lawlessness gone rampant, but with a pious pose, a religious relish, a saintly stance, a form of godliness that makes God want to puke.
It is time for the punishment because the warnings have gone unheeded.
When we tell people these things, we are known as the ones who make God puke. We are the ones who are hateful, arrogant, mean, stupid, ridiculous, false, divisive, ignorant, heretical, fanatical, legalistic, ungracious, pretentious, proud, and without love. What a hardened, stubborn, corrupt and implacable audience we have! Many of our detractors claim to love fellow mankind, to have its best interests at heart, but they show their colors in their manifest hate for us and God when we call on them to repent of their sins and to turn to God. Loving, we are accused of hate; those to whom we preach do hate, yet claim to love. They call good evil, and evil good.
Why should so-called believers in God need to be told that images are forbidden? Why should they need to be told that sexual debauchery, drunkenness, and careless living are sin? How is it that an evil nation can tell a so-called righteous nation what is good and what is evil, even if in limited measure?
Now the Muslims come to steal, to kill and to destroy. They are doing it now and have barely introduced themselves, some with guns, and some with roses, building their free speech platforms in our countries, their mosques from which they will infiltrate, inculcate, indoctrinate and incite against the host country, taking from it the freedoms not afforded to Westerners or even themselves in Muslim countries. The Muslims are here, sent of God, for the very purpose of judging America and the West. As Muslims are perfectly hypocritical and contradictory, so has the West been with God.
The West needs the Muslims badly. I remember my parents saying to me when I was unruly, “You are itching for a spanking!” The West has begged for the sword and destruction and is now beginning to receive that which it has insisted upon having. It is time for the punishment because the warnings have gone unheeded and despised. It won’t be long. The process has begun and will intensify without letup, until many are taken away.
Where is freedom of speech? Am I allowed to speak the truth? Will I be sued now for what I have said? Will I be killed by Muslims whose mullahs now put out contracts for novelists and cartoonists? You tell me. While some guess, the guesswork is swiftly giving way to certainty. Everyone needs to repent to God.
From Ali Sina’s website, www.faithfreedom.org:
“In order for you to appreciate the evilness of Islam, let us choose a few verses of the Quran and switch the words ‘Muslim’ and ‘non-Muslims’ and see how they look:
We will cast terror into the hearts of Muslims. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them. 8:12,
Let not the non-Muslims take for friends or helpers the Muslims. 3:28,
Rouse the non-Muslims to the fight against Muslims. 8:65,
Then fight and slay the Muslims wherever ye find them, 9:5,
Fight the Muslims, and God will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame. 9:14,
O ye the non-Muslims take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love Islam. 9:23,
O ye the non-Muslims! Truly the Muslims are unclean. 9:28,
O ye non-Muslims! fight the Muslims who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you. 9:123,
Therefore, when ye meet the Muslims, smite at their necks. 47:4
People have it backwards thinking the "extremist" jihadists of Islam are the greatest threat and "moderate" Muslims aren't so dangerous.
Are all religions beautiful, deserving of praise and respect, if not admiration? Muslim Mike says so. But what does his Koran say about that? What does the Bible, God’s Word, say? We answer Mike’s contention that we are out to bash Islam.
A customer at Harvest Haven takes leave of us, “shocked and horrified” that we “spread such inflammatory words about a whole religion,” and regretting “every dollar ever spent in [our] store.” She says, with a straight face, that she will never come back because she “values freedom of religion and respect for ALL people.”
