With ISIS in the news so frequently now, I decided to repost a portion of a blog I wrote in 2011 called Islam’s Days Are Numbered. So, here it is.
Contrary to all the reassuring voices abroad in the land today, Islam is not a religion of peace. Rather, it is a tool of the devil. Islam will have no peace with any other belief system, religious or otherwise, because Islam demands submission from all to Allah and his requirements. And since even Muslims differ about what those requirements are, they can’t even make peace among themselves– much less will they ever bring peace to the world. Again, Islam is not a religion of peace.
Islam not only lacks peace, it also lacks the freedom it purports to offer. According to Islam, its followers are freed from all the requirements of other religions and the traditions of men. The catch is, all the world must live under the Sharia Law of Allah, and those laws are strictly enforced with all the authority of the government.
Yes, Islam is a tyrannical religious/political system. It favors Muslim males. Its laws are especially hard on women and Non-Muslims (second class citizens who are denied basic human rights and only allowed to live as long as they honor and obey Muslims, and pay the special taxes required of them), but no one is truly safe under such a system. Corrupt officials endanger the lives of all who find themselves subject to Sharia Law and there is no higher authority to appeal to.
Islam not only lacks peace and freedom, it fails to place a high value on human life. Islam is not grounded in moral teachings from a God who values all human life. Rather, it is a religion that glorifies death! Its adherents rejoice when “unbelievers” perish. And, they celebrate the death of their own who die killing others. Untold millions have already perished globally in the 1400 years since this bloody, tyrannical system arose in the desert land of the Hagarites, known today as Saudi Arabia. How many more will be destroyed before the light finally conquers this malignant force of darkness?
Islamic Jihadists kill without provocation. They kill randomly and they kill based on the clear teachings of the Quran and as the obedient warriors of Allah. They are not Islamic extremists. They are actually Islamic fundamentalists. In fact, imitating their prophet, they kill without compassion or remorse and even rejoice in the name of their god; before, during and after their deadly attacks.
And, Jihadists believe they are blessed for the murders they commit. Those who die in the act of killing are martyrs and are promised they will bypass any suffering in hell and go straight into the arms of 72 virgins prepared especially for them. They also hope to be able to deliver 70 close relatives from hell, as well. That’s a powerful incentive! (Without Jesus to save them, they have no other hope of avoiding suffering.)
What god makes promises of such base sensual gratification to his followers for laying down their lives to murder unsuspecting innocents who are given no opportunity to repent? It’s not a loving God like Yahweh, of the Holy Bible, Who is “not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance!” It sounds more like the being described by Jesus when He said, “Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy.” Who but Satan could be behind such a deceptive, destructive religious/political system?
Yes, Satan is the god and father of Islam. He, like a roaring lion, goes about seeking whom he may devour.
The world will have no peace until Jesus Christ, the Jewish Prince of Peace, comes to conquer the destroyer and beat the swords into plowshares as He rules the world in peace from Jerusalem. That’s why Satan, working through Islam, hates Israel and seeks to destroy it. But don’t worry, Islam’s days are numbered and Jesus is coming soon!
New Living Translation (©2007)
The LORD (Jesus) will mediate between peoples and will settle disputes between strong nations far away. They will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will no longer fight against nation, nor train for war anymore. Micah 4:3
I urge all readers of my blog to seek eternal salvation through faith in Jesus Christ alone. He died on the cross of Calvary for the sins of all mankind to set us free from sin’s penalty and to give us abundant life now and forever! Please turn to Him. He loves you! Today is the day of salvation!
For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2
