Where is the urgency?

Very few ministers of God’s Word are discussing the return of Jesus and the upcoming tribulation. Those who may mention it, in regards mostly to the moral decline of America, do not seem to have a sense of urgency in their messages. Jesus is coming back, folks! Look around you! The signs are EVERYWHERE. The rapture is imminent and just around the corner. This should make ALL of us, not just preachers, have a sense of urgency to spread the Word. If you really believe that what you believe is really real, then now is the time to shout it!

Scoffers Waxing Worse and Worse

Scoffers Waxing Worse and Worse by Jan Markell

Scoffing has hit a whole new level but be of good cheer, it means the hour is very late.

If you have perused headlines recently, or watched a TV news hour, you are stunned at what’s going on. I am every morning as I post headlines here. I let them sink in and I shake my head. When has the world been in this much chaos? When have people been this unhappy, confused, addicted, pagan, angry and tuned out?

So Hollywood is making the apocalypse a joke in two movies:This is the End and Rapture Palooza. The latter features a scene where Jesus is blown out of the sky as He returns in His Second Coming. It doesn’t get any more outrageous. (What if a movie shot Mohammed or Allah out of the sky?!) And one movie critic states, “Satan, God, and Jesus are ultimately killed, leaving non-believers to live in peace.”

Well, not quite because that’s not the way it will happen. And if “the end” plays out sooner rather than later, the producers of such nonsense will not be laughing for long.

Sadly, it’s not just the pagans doing the mocking and scoffing, however. Many Christians, churches, and even entire denominations have similar attitudes. And while they are hardly as offensive, the end result is similar. Read More

Some thoughts about Islam, Prophecy and End-times

Consider this a brainstorming post, if you will. As I gather more research and information, my opinions here might change. If/when they do, I will let you know.

Evidence seems to be building concerning Islam’s role in end-time events. The likelihood that the antichrist will be Imam al Mahdi is increasing in my mind. Many prophecy scholars that I would consider “mentors” believe that the antichrist will NOT be of muslim origin, for reasons I will explain later. I find myself having to disagree.

If there ever was an ideology/religion birthed by satan it is Islam. It is the greatest delusion of our time, rivaling even atheism. Allow me to consider the following points:

*satan wants to be worshiped as God

*satan despises God’s people, the Jews.

*satan hates the bride of Christ, true followers of Jesus, the Son of God

*he continues to gnash his teeth at what Jesus did on the cross, and that He rose again conquering death and sin

*he roams around, seeking whom he may devour

*he is the father of lies and the master of deception

islam

Islam is the perfect satanic religion.  he is worshiped as god, by the name of allah. he does not care by what name or in what form, so long as the One True God is denied. Anyone who does not follow Jesus, follows satan by default. Period.

Islam denies Jesus as the Son of God. It hates all infidels, all those who do not submit to allah: the Jews first, as well as Christians.

“They” say Islam is a religion of peace. “They” say the butchers we read about in the news are radicals and that true muslims do not condone such violent actions. It is true that there are many peaceful, kind, generous, loving muslims in the world today. There are some, maybe MOST westernized muslims (as in converts in America, American citizens etc) who sincerely believe theirs is a religion of peace and they themselves are nice, friendly people who work hard and do good in the community.

Nevertheless, they are deceived.  Once again, satan does not care how he is worshiped so long as Christ is NOT. He has a hayday with those willing to murder in his name (or Allah’s), but he is also satisfied with the nice ones. It is the nice ones that make it so appealing, so….not evil…in the eyes of the world.

Keeping all this in mind, satan wants to be worshiped. he wants to rule. Enter the twelfth imam; the muslim messiah.

All the “educated ignorant” of the world will be first amazed and then convinced that islam prophecy is being fulfilled upon the arrival of the messiah and hear that the era of peace has arrived, amid all the signs and wonders performed by the son of perdition. Followers of Jesus will of course have been raptured by this point. antichrist will explain it as Allah’s way of cleansing the world of the hateful, blasphemous Christians. How he’ll explain the disappearance of all the innocent children remains to be seen, but I’m sure he’ll come up with a “logical” explanation.

Take a moment to read this post and watch the video below.  Let me know your thoughts and I’ll post more as I organize my thoughts and do more research. I know there are readers of this blog that have more experience in studying prophecy and world events and I appreciate your input as well as your insights as revealed in your blogs.

Texas Mega-Church Welcomes Islamists to ‘Global Faith Forum’

The 3,000-member NorthWood Church of Keller, T.X. is holding a “Global Faith Forum” in November. In yet another Islamist-attended interfaith event, Christians will hear from a former Saudi intelligence chief, a former director-general of Al-Jazeera, officials from U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entities and the non-Muslims who embrace them.

“There is a ‘clear and present’ danger the U.S. courts have ruled in regard to freedom of speech—I think that has to extend globally.”

Pastor Bob Roberts. Jr. is known for his efforts to build-bridges with Muslims. He spoke at the “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference put together by Palestinian Christians at Bethlehem Bible College. So did Florida Pastor Joel C. Hunter, who has been negative attention for his association with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. Hunter is also critical of “Christian Zionists.”

An article posted on Hunter’s website reports how the “Christ at the Checkpoint” audience, including students from Wheaton and Eastern Universities, “were moved by the testimony of Palestinian men and women who shared the pain and suffering they experience on a daily basis caused primarily by the continuing occupation.” Pastor Roberts reacted to the anti-Islam Innocence of Muslims video by suggesting that governments crack down on its distribution. He said, “There is a ‘clear and present’ danger the U.S. courts have ruled in regard to freedom of speech—I think that has to extend globally.”  Read More
