Part 18:
The Tribulation—Not Just for Jews

There have been periods in history so terrible they are too shocking and ghastly they are impossible to fully describe. But guess what, things could get worse. When Jesus was telling His disciples about the fate of the Jews and of Jerusalem, He added: “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (Matt. 24:21.) From biblical prophecy, and the observance of history, this “tribulation” seems to be an ongoing process which will culminate in events which the world has never known. But what part does the Islamic religion have to play in this? Let’s take a brief look.

The entire purpose of Satan is to destroy and nullify the work of Christ, and the death and devastation of mankind is of no consequence to him in the process. The purpose of the Islamic religion is no different. Although that old devil is trying to accomplish his nefarious deeds through other entities upon this earth at the same time, the actual goal of Islam is not to just worship a god of their choice, but to annihilate the belief in Jesus Christ through spiritual slavery, or by savage bloodshed, if necessary. Here are just four of many quotes from the Qur’an concerning their true intentions (The Qur’an has 114 chapters, called suras. Quotations from the Quar’an will have the citation of “sura” followed by chapter and verse):

But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them and lie in wait [ambush] for them in every stratagem (of war)” (Sura 9:5).

Fight those who believe not in God [Allah] and his apostle [Muhammad], nor acknowledge the religion of truth [even if they are] of the people of the book [i.e. Jews and Christians], until they pay jizya [humiliating tax] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued [enslaved]” (Sura 9:29).

O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers” (Sura 9:123).

Therefore when ye meet the unbelievers [in fight] smite at their necks; at length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly [on them]” (Sura 47:4).

Where the Holy Bible speaks of love, forgiveness, and peace, the Qur’an inflames the believer to violence and bloodshed of those who choose not to believe in a false god. For further illustration of the mind set the leaders of Islam, here are a few quotes from Ayatollah Khomeini:

Ayatollah Khomeini taught a five point agenda:
Stage 1: Iran must become a theocratic, fundamentalist Islamic State.
Stage 2: Iraq must become a theocratic, fundamentalist Islamic State.
Stage 3: Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Egypt, have to become fundamentalist, theocratic Islamic States.
Stage 4: Jerusalem must be retaken and the Jewish people destroyed.
Stage 5: Conquest of the nations.

In 1984, Ayatollah Khomeini declared to the entire world:
“In order to achieve the victory of Islam in the world, we need to provoke repeated crises, restored value to the idea of death and martyrdom. If Iran has to vanish, that is not important.
The important thing is to engulf the world in crises.”

This evil obviously is not about Islamic hatred for the Jews or Zionism, but rather the 1400 year long war of Islam is against the non-Islamic world. Following are a few news flashes from around the world:

From Moriel Ministries:,
Moslems Firebomb English Church During Islam Awareness Week

“In the recent UK observances of Islamic Awareness Week, the church burnings that are normal Moslem behaviour in Nigeria, Pakistan, Indonesia and elsewhere, came home to Great Britain. Islamic gangs hurled anti-white racist insults at an Anglican vicar in a parish church in Bradford, setting alight an automobile parked in front of it, and then attacked the church with the aim of burning it down.

“We have warned for years that Islam is not a tolerant religion, and would do the very things in Britain and elsewhere in the West, to Christians and Jews, that they do in Islamic countries. The fact is, that the British and American Governments, wilfully ignore the fact that the rights of Christians are guaranteed nowhere in the Islamic world, and their basic human rights consistently violated. In no place does Islam accord to Christians and Jews the same rights they themselves demand in Judeo-Christian democracies.

“The British Government, of course, has not been honest with the country in confronting the militant Islamic threat or the reality of it. This came after the violent assault by Moslem youth on a 70 year old veteran of the Normandy invasions—in Oldham, beating him within reach of his life for the crime of being a “white Christian” on “their territory”. The media and the Government and stupidly, so much of the church, refuses to recognize the reality of jihad and what it really means. The bombardment of the Australian cricket team on the field, with projectiles, by raging Islamic supporters of the Pakistan team is, to the militant Moslem mind, part of jihad. It is not mere sport. So too, the devotion of British Islamic youth to the now defeated boxer Prince Nazim, who was humiliated in the ring when he was finally obligated to fight a viable contender—was not mere sports— but a battle between Islam and the West.”

In other news:
From Indonesia: Three teenage girls were beheaded on their way to their Christian school and one of their heads left on the steps of a Church. The note left behind reads: “We will murder 100 more Christian teenagers and their heads will be presented as presents.”

“Once again, women are the targets. In mid-March, rebels assaulted three women gathering firewood and cut off their ears, lips, and breasts.”

“Starting in 2003, Janjaweed Arabs, a Sudan-backed militia, have driven 2 million villagers from their homes in ethnic-cleansing attacks designed to suppress local rebels.”

“Eyewitness accounts detailing the militia attacks are horrifying. ‘They killed my 3-year-old son right in front of my eyes,’ one father from West Darfur said. Since last fall, women have reported more than 500 rapes. Three women said five militiamen beat and raped them last August. The women said, ‘After they abused us, they told us that now we would have Arab babies. And, if they would find any [more] women, they would rape them again to change the color of their children.’”

Also, a Christian evangelist disappeared into the Palestinian territory for a couple of weeks and was butchered and cut into 4 parts and sent back home to his family in a box.

Moslems are victims of their own religion:
AP - December 06, 2006 MOGADISHU, Somalia—“Residents of a southern Somalia town who do not pray five times a day will be beheaded, an Islamic courts official said Wednesday, adding the edict will be implemented in three days.”

In Mogadishu, Somalia, there is a beheading edict for not showing up for prayer 5 times a day.

Two million killed in the Sudan alone. Do these Sudanese (pictured at right) ever question where the tribulation is? And Nigeria is not far behind.

In Saudia Arabia 15 girls were killed because Islamic religious police sent them back into a burning school for trying to emerge from the burning building without head coverings. “The English-language Saudi Gazette, in a front-page report yesterday quoted witnesses as saying that members of the religious police stopped men who tried to help the girls escape from the building, saying: ‘It is sinful to approach them.’”

Today, in “civilized” Saudi Arabia, if an Arab lets it be known that they converted to Christianity they are beheaded. Death is the punishment for apostasy required by the Qur’an for turning away from Islam. In world news man saw the same resolve displayed by the Afghans. The Afghani government had to pretend the Christian was mentally retarded to avoid the required beheading, which would have subsequently exposed their evil before the world community.

“Rand Abdel-Qader, 17, was killed by her father after falling in love with a British soldier.” Though she had no sexual relations with the man, she told a girlfriend she was in love with him. When her father found out he threw her down, stood on her neck and started to stab her to death. Her brothers came running to help, but when their father told them what he found out, they helped him kill her.

And in the U.S., “Mo Hassan, founder of Bridges TV, a station whose mission was “fostering understanding between cultures and diverse populations,” cut off the head of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, 37, who had recently filed for divorce.” NBC originally reporting on it now remains considerably silent about it.

A likeness of the First Jihad is springing up all over the world. The fastest growing religion in Europe is Islam and as of this writing, the largest mosque in the western world is in Rome. The largest place of worship in Toronto is a Moslem mosque, and there are more people attending mosques in England than there are going to the Church of England. In fact, Islamic Mullahs in England claim they will soon control that whole country. In Holland, state-owned Christian churches are being turned over to Moslems; and in the United States, 14% of the immigrants are Islamic.

Worldwide, there are about 1.5 billion people in Islam today. Best estimates are that 10-15 percent of all Moslems are violently anti-Israel and anti-Christian. In other words, 150 to 200 million people are ardent supporters of the world’s most violent religion. Since there are an estimated five to six million Moslems here in the United States, if that 10-15% statistic holds true for us, we could reasonably conclude that between 500,000 and 900,000 American Moslems support a jihad against their adopted country; and a major portion of funding for Hamas comes from Moslems in the United States.

To illustrate, a Washington DC Muslim cleric recently (2009) created the symbol (at right) for the upcoming war in America that most people do not believe is coming. Notice that it is on the “right hand” and bears the stylized Bismillah.

Are we are being taken for fools? While claiming to be our friends, Islamic militias are killing thousands of Christians in Nigeria, over a million Christians in the Sudan, many by crucifixion, thousands in Indonesia, the Philippines and anywhere else in the world where there are large Islamic populations. So what are the differences between the United States and Nigeria, the Sudan, and Indonesia? Many! But there is one glaring difference between us—there are a lot more Moslems in those countries than there are here. Can you guess what it would be like in America if the Muslem population increased proportionately as in those countries?

Who in America is willing to call us to awaken? Despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary, the pseudo-President of the United States publically claims that Islam is love and peace, and that America is no longer a Christian nation. There are peaceful Moslems, but the Qur’an has always called for war. Maybe a few verses from Revelation 16 might come to life with our new perspective.

Revelation 16:12-14:And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates [which flows between Iraq and Iran]; and the water thereof was dried up [the “waters” that separated them were figuratively dried up by Muhammad because through Islam they have become one people in spirit], that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared [The major Islamic countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia are East of Israel]. And I saw three unclean spirits [the Leopard-Bear-Lion is a three-part empire] like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon [Satan], and out of the mouth of the [Islamic] beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet [now historically, who might that be?]. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world [for the first time in history, Islam is now spreading into the Western world], to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”

Note the location of this prophecy: the River Euphrates that runs between Iran and Iraq and into Syria. So Revelation again points to Islam—the lair of the beast formed by Daniel’s leopard, bear, and lion. Notice how many evil spirits like frogs there are: THREE! And John’s beast of Revelation 13 is a composite of the leopard, bear, and lion. It is the release of these three demons into the world that is triggering the war we’re fighting right now. To our own destruction, the two-horned beast is helping John’s three-part beast regain its strength.

Christian martyrdom still happens in countries controlled by Islam, but all of that is far away and could never be a danger to America, right? Well, by the time of Bush’s War on Terror, Islam was already a major force among Afro-American youth, and many prison populations are now controlled by Black Muslims as has been reported time again on Fox and CNN news.

Such incidents as considered above, and worse, will soon be happening here in America if we are not careful. But let’s avoid “ethnic profiling” because someone’s feelings might get hurt, allowing our enemies to use our unbelievable gullibility against us. We suffer from a deadly new psychosis known as “political correctness,” a malady that will eventually kill us!
And don’t expect to see Christian persecution reported on ABC, CBS, NBC or CNN.
