And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Mt. 24:11,12.
Jesus warned us that after him false prophets would rise. One of those false prophets certainly was Mohammed who founded the Mohammedan religion by plagiarizing content from the Judeao-Christian sacred writings and then mixing them with pagan Arab moon worship and his own lust for power and self-gratification.
10 years ago we observed the evil fruit caused by deceived men who blindly followed a false prophet. 10 years ago Mohammedanism lost its moral justification and became unfit for the future. Since the teachings of Mohammedanism contradict Bible truth it never had a spiritual justification since its founding in the 7th century.
10 years ago we saw how a once strong America became vulnerable because America no longer has that reverence for God that it used to have and upon which it was actually founded. We must remember the Bible principle that if we forsake God then his blessings and protection will forsake us. God will not utterly forsake us because in His love he is waiting for us to repent and return to Him.
Islam is not a world religion. When I open up my 1828 Webster’s dictionary the term ‘Islam’ is not eve included. But Webster’s dictionary speaks of Mohammedans and Mohammedanism to remind us that this religion is based on the rantings of one man who considered himself to be a prophet.
Billions have people have suffered under the cruel oppression of the Quran teachings. Whatever sign of “peace” or “love” is found in Islam most likely is that which Mohammed merely plagiarized from the Bible and copied from the limited Christian teaching he was exposed to in his day. But it is time to introduce the real thing to the Muslim world. Let us pray for those people who are lost in the Muslim world. Let us spend time on our knees that the teachings of Christ and His gospel will flood the darkness of Mohammedan strongholds with the true gospel light.
We have seen regime change in nations such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt and Libya. We cannot implement democracy upon them with military force. America can not afford any foreign wars anymore but must cut its budget tremendously to pay off its entire debt. Only cuts to the military budget are not wise because a strong national defense is necessary to secure freedom, borders and peace through strength without being entangled abroad.
The terror and violence of Mohammedanism reveals that Islam has failed as a source of guidance or peace for the soul. There are about 1.2 to 1.6 billion Mohammedans in the world and we need to introduce them to the love and worship of Jesus. Neoconservative nation-building in multiple war zones is not the solution. The war on terror should not be a blank check for police state methods, world government and wars and rumors of wars.
Many Mohammedans have moved to Europe and America for economic and religious reasons. Their homelands did not offer the freedom and the opportunity for them to live happy and prosperous lives. While these Mohammedans are in Europe and America we can win them to Christ right there. We have opportunity to show them that Allah is not Got and that the Lord wants to save them the same way He did us when we repented and turned to Christ in faith. All people are saved the same way – by faith in Jesus alone. No other religions, rituals or prophets necessary. No pilgrimage to Mecca necessary.
In the world after 9/11 we should not allow our love to grow cold because of the terror. Our lives should not be disabled by distrust and fear. This day more than ever America must remain resilient by making God her strength and abiding in His ways.
This year we celebrate the 400th anniversary of our King James Bible, the most dominant English Bible that has produced forth fruit in the form of revival , mission work, saved souls and faithful churches. I rejoice every time when I see the King James Bible in a motel night stand. Its language preserves the English language from corruption and its reading and personal application keeps our lives from corruption. Nothing would make my heart rejoice more than an ex-Muslim getting saved and becoming a King Jame Bible Berean student of the Bible. The English language is understood even in many of these Arab nations. The Bible gets the job done when political and diplomatic sources won’t get it done. The Bible gets the job done when nation-building, foreign aid, world trade, military intervention can’t do it anymore. We must trust God and not the arm of flesh. We do not fight against flesh and blood. In fact we need to love the oppressed billions in the Muslim world. We should never treat them as inferior people. But we must stand against false doctrine. Mohammedanism is false doctrine just as Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witness, Prosperity Gospel, Scientology and other secular isms. We fight with mighty weapons through God to cast down imaginations and bring every thought to the obedience of Christ. So we must win the battle of ideas. Sometimes the Muslim world is outraged over the moral perversion in the western, so-called “Christian” countries. Muslims are outraged because of divorce, sexual deviancy, family break-ups, profanity, lewd cothing, weak men and un-female women in the western nations. I believe we would not have this confrontation with radical Mohammedan terror if people in western countries loved the Lord Jesus Christ, lived in healthy family relationships, and their newspapers and magazines and media were not filled with displays of nudity, perversion, lewdness and adultery. We have lost our sense of holiness. We have lost precious moral standards. Clothes have become too short and too revealing. Up until the 1980s modest clothing was very common in society. Now it is frowned upon and those who remain faithful to the Biblical standard are condemnd as bizarre legalists or worse.
Even on this day we must consider the Bible principle: When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. Proverbs 16:7. Let us make sure our ways please God so that we can have a good testimony to spread the gospel everywhere including the Muslim world. How can our ways please God? In order for our ways to please God we must seek God’s ways and walk in them. Psalm 128. Now is the time to follow Christ because we have had enough of watching the evil fruit that comes from following false prophets. The teachings of false prophets such as Mohammed have become unsustainable. Let us be a blessing to those Mohammedans who are seeking new orientation for their life. Let us not hinder them but help them find Jesus Christ who gives rest to the souls of them who seek Him and come to Him. How dreadful must be the life under a regime such as in Iran and under the Taleban militia. Christ has to offer grace, forgiveness, love and eternal life.
Personally, I rejoice about the missionary work of Global Hope, founded by Heather Mercer who along with other missionaries 10 years ago was held captive by the Taleban in Afghanistan. The US invasion later on helped free her and the other missionaries. Global Hope now works in Iraq to establish the Freedom Center where the gospel goes out largely to Muslim women in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq. Here is more information:
