1962… a year that will live in infamy

 

1962 a year that will live in infamy

In two landmark decisions, Engel v. Vitale (1962) and Abington School District v. Schempp (1963), the US Supreme Court established what is now the current prohibition on state-sponsored prayer in schools.

Following the catastrophe of September 11, 2001 an increasing number of California public school mandated students must attend an intensive three-week course on Islam. The purpose of the plan was to insure America would not have negative connotations about Islam.

Wednesday, January 9, 2002- ASSIST News Service

As children return to school this week, following the Christmas break, 7th graders in a growing number of public schools, who are not permitted to wear a cross or speak the name of Jesus, will be required to attend an intensive three week course on Islam; a course in which students are mandated to learn the tenets of Islam, study the important figures of the faith, wear a robe, adopt a Muslim name and stage their own Jihad.
In Byron, California, parents were outraged when students came home with their handouts and were told what was being taught. Their complaints to the school principal not only were ignored, but officials of this public school, funded by tax dollars, essentially fluffed them off.
The public schools in California so stealthily slipped this course into the 7th grade curriculum that even another 7th grade teacher, Elizabeth Christina Lemings, was totally in the dark that this was being taught until her son, Joseph, who is a 7th grader in the same school where she teaches, brought home the handouts.
“We could never teach Christianity like this,” Lemings said to ANS during an on-site interview. “We can’t even mention the name of Jesus in the public schools, but over there…,” she pointed to the building next to hers, “they teach Islam as the true religion, and students are taught about Islam and how to pray to Allah.” [2]


On October 22, 2014, John Wood discovered that his daughter was being forced to repeat religious tenets of Islam as a part of her World History class assignment. She was required to write how the prophet Muhammad was visited by the angel Gabriel and preached that there is only one true god, who is Allah. The assignment made her write that Mohammad is the messenger of Allah and that the Quran is holy text.

The assignment required her to affirm that “Allah is the same god that is worshipped in Christianity and Judaism” and that the “Quran is the word of Allah revealed to Mohammad in the same way that Jews and Christians believe the Torah and the Gospels were revealed to Moses and the New Testament writers.” The assignment also forced young women such as the Woods’ daughter, to fill in the following sentences: “Men are the managers of the affairs of women” and “Righteous women are therefore obedient.” [3]

When John Wood petitioned La Plata High School in Maryland over the Islamic indoctrination of their 11th-grade daughter in her World History class, he was met with steadfast opposition. Wood’s conversation with a La Plata vice principal “indicated that his daughter, a high school junior with college hopes, would receive zeros on her assignments on Islam if she did not complete them.”  Yes, his daughter has received a failing grade in her World History Class.


By Cheryl K. Chumley – The Washington Times – Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Ron Wagner, a Florida father, said his son’s world history book has gone too far with a lesson that teaches Muhammad is the messenger of God.

One part of the book, for instance, reads: “There is no god, but God. Muhammad is the messenger of God,” he said, quoting from his son’s Lyman High School history book, WFTV reported.

“Students were instructed to recite this prayer as the first Pillar of Islam, off of the board at the teacher’s instruction,” Mr. Wagner said. “For it to be mandatory and part of the curriculum and in the textbooks, didn’t seem right.”

The chapter in the history book is called the “Rise of Islam,” and includes text of the faith’s prayers and scriptures, right from the Koran, WFTV reported.

Mr. Wagner also complained that the first 100 pages of the of the religious-based chapters that deal with Judaism and Christianity are missing — and the school district explains that omission by saying the defect, which impacted 68 books, is due to a manufacturer mistake, WFTV reported.

The school also said that the “Pillars of Islam are benchmarks in the state curriculum” and must be taught, WFTV reported. [4]


As the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, I fear your minds should be corrupted in like fashion. Take it from someone that is tracking the progress at the ground level…

Dr. William Saxton is the founder and chairman of Citizens for National Security, a nonprofit think tank biased in Boca Raton whose mission is to educate and activate U.S. citizens concerning the dangers of “homegrown” fundamentalist Islam, particularly the long tentacles of the Islamic Brotherhood. Saxton has a Harvard PhD in physics and a degree from MIT, and he’s worked as a consultant for NASA. Now he’s devoting himself full time, and without pay, to documenting what he sees as the pernicious effects of Islam in the U.S.

Saxton says he first realized the extent of the problem when he was in California, looking at his grandchildren’s textbooks. The problem isn’t limited to Florida. “This is an epidemic!” Saxton says. [5]


On June 09, 2008, I posted an article entitled…

‘the green flag will eventually succumb to the red blood’

In the article I reference some quotes by Sheik Abu Saqer, leader of Gaza’s Jihadia Salafiya Islamic outreach movement, which seeks to make secular Muslims more religious, and calls for holy war against the pope. He said Christian leaders such as Benedict are “afraid” because they realize Islam is Allah’s favorite religion and they are going to hell unless they convert. The Gaza preacher declared the “green flag of Muhammad” would soon be raised over the Vatican.

The Gaza preacher said the pope and the Christian world are “panicking” because they realize “who is winning”.

“See how Islam is progressing and gaining more and more members and see the moral crisis in the West. See today the support of Islam in the Arab and Muslim world and how Islam is gaining more and more adherents in Europe and even in the United States and you understand that Islam is the future and that this dwarf pope was wrong. But I can sympathize with him. He is frustrated because he understands where things are heading.”

The ‘green flag of Muhammad’ is not atop the Vatican, but is beginning to wave proudly over the public school systems of the Untied States of America.

As the ‘green flag of Muhammad’ continues to gain preeminence in America, the sound of Rachel’s weeping and lamentations of great mourning will only grow louder.

the circle of passion… understanding the radical elements of Islam and Christianity

    pas·sion ˈpaSHən/: noun

    1. strong and barely controllable emotion. "a man of impetuous passion"
    2. the suffering and death of Jesus. "meditations on the Passion of Christ"

    synonyms: crucifixion, suffering, agony, martyrdom [1]

    According to David Barrett et al, editors of the "World Christian Encyclopedia: A comparative survey of churches and religions – AD 30 to 2200," there are 19 major world religions which are subdivided into a total of 270 large religious groups, and many smaller ones. [2]

    The circle of passion above is an illustration of how I see the religions in all of the world.The blue portion of the circle, which makeup all the known religions, comprise Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Muslims, Chinese and Catholics, Orthodox and Protestant Christianity, etc…

    The blue portion of the graphic representing the ‘world of religion’ is a picture of what the Coexist Foundation and the Chrislam Movement is all about. [3]  Their  ultimate goal is for all the religions of the world to coexist in peace and harmony. Dwelling in a warm, cozy community without conflict, while joining hands and singing a round of kumbaya my lord, kumbaya. For the most part the vast majority of the world religions have no problem with this concept, except for a couple of radical segment of Islam and Christianity.

    A careful examination of the circle of passion reveals two very small slivers which are located at the extreme edges. Even though they are part of the larger circle, they are distinct from the larger, vast majority of religionist. These slivers would be considered outside the norm of their respective religion, and labeled as radical or extremist. It is hard to understand what the actual percentage of the smaller slivers are in relationship to the majority, but we can surmise they are miniscule in comparison to the majority.

    The religionist that are within these smaller slivers are not only smaller in number, but possess a different conviction than those in the larger area of the circle. The conviction of the patrons in the slivers are so strong and determined they are willing to die for these  convictions. In order to understand these radical elements we must understand some foundational teachings of Islam and Christianity.

    Islam:

    Shahid or Shaheed (Arabic: شهيد,‎ šahīd, plural: شُهَدَاء šuhadāʾ ) originates from the Qur’anic Arabic word meaning "witness" and is also used to denote a "martyr." It is used as an honorific for Muslims who have died fulfilling a religious commandment, especially those who die wielding jihad, or historically in the military expansion of Islam.

    The word shahid in Arabic means "witness". Its development closely parallels that of Greek marturos "witness", the origin of the term martyr. Shahid occurs frequently in the Quran in the generic sense "witness", but only once in the sense "martyr; one who dies deliberately for his faith"; this latter sense becomes standardized in the hadiths. [4]

    Christianity:

    Mat 10:34  Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
    Mat 10:35  For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
    Mat 10:36  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
    Mat 10:37  He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
    Mat 10:38  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
    Mat 10:39  He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

    1Pe 4:12  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
    1Pe 4:13  But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
    1Pe 4:14  If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
    1Pe 4:15  But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.
    1Pe 4:16  Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
    1Pe 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
    1Pe 4:18  And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
    1Pe 4:19  Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

    The radical patrons in the two slivers are not only located 180  degrees of each other, their conviction are just as diametrically opposed. Radical Islam lives to kill. Taking innocent life is no problem for this violent segment of Islam and if their own death is required during the Shahid, they willingly die. Those dwelling in the radical Christianity sliver do not take innocent life. They are generally the innocent lives that are taken by the violent, Islamic extremist, yet they are willing to die for the cause of the gospel and the testimony of their Christ.

    Now every patron of Islam does not have the conviction to “die wielding jihad or for the expansion of Islam” nor every Christian to be “reproached for the name of Christ”. The blue portion of the circle of passion is reserved for them to coexist in peace, but those that inhabit the slivers are fully committed… even to death!

    Though the inhabitants of the slivers have similar convictions and commitment, their end  is quite different. Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God, commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

     

    “A man who does not have something for which he is willing to die, is not fit to live.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.

    King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee, for his efforts to end segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means.

    The ONLY true peace, in both this life and the one to come is in Yeshua:

    Iraq: Isis cruelty graphically revealed in gay man’s savage rooftop execution in Mosul

    January 16,2015

    The Islamic State [IS] group has released photographs that allegedly show the final moments before a man is thrown from the roof of a building in the Iraqi city of Mosul as punishment for being gay.

    The photos were uploaded to Justpaste.it by jihadists and circulated on social media sites by IS-affiliated accounts.

    The photo shows a man about to be pushed to his death by two IS militants and another shows that a large crowd had gathered to watch below.

    A caption on one of the photographs explains that the man had committed a crime of ‘the people of Lot’, meaning that he is alleged to have committed an act of sodomy, and was ‘thrown from a high place’ as punishment. [1]

    As the large crowd (Muslims) gathered below to watch the brutal execution, there does not appear, at least openly, to be any opposition to the judgment meted out by ISIS against the homosexual.

    Below is a YouTube video of protestors in the Palm Springs, CA that gathered back in 2008 to protest the unanimous approval of Prop-8 initiative.

    Proposition 8 was a ballot initiative, and a California state constitutional amendment, passed in the November 2008 elections, which says that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

    The video is from a local news report covering the protest that took place at the Palm Springs City Hall. Wonder if the protestors in the video would have been as vocal in the Iraqi city of Mosul as they are against the Christian grand-mother in the USA?

    Anti-Proposition 8 Mob Attacking Grandmother – YouTube Video

    YouTube Note: Public Advocate of the US has been sending volunteers all over the United States conducting a Citizens Survey to find out if Americans support traditional marriage and the Marriage Protection Amendment, legally defining marriage as between a man and a woman at the Federal level. An overwhelming majority said that they do and wanted to encourage President-elect Obama to do the same.
    The recent passing of Proposition 8 in California shows that we were absolutely right. If the people of California believe in traditional marriage, what must the rest of the country support? The radical lefts reaction shows how obscenely dedicated they are to silencing the American people, even sparking violence against those who do not fit into their narrow ideological box. Public Advocate will be covering these events as they unfold. For more information about our organization visit us on the web at

    Surah Al-A’raf 7:80-84 [2]

    (7:80) And remember when We sent Lot, as a Messenger to his people and he said to them: Do you realize you practice an indecency of which no other people in the world were guilty of before you?

    (7:81) You approach men lustfully in place of women. You are a people who exceed all bounds.

    (7:82) Their only answer was: ‘Banish them from your town. They are a people who pretend to be pure.

    (7:83) Then We delivered Lot and his household save his wife who stayed behind,

    (7:84) and We let loose a shower [of stones] upon them, Observe, then, the end of the evil-doers


    Leviticus 20:13 Young’s Literal Translation[3]

    Lev 20:13  If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

    Romans 1:26-28 Young’s Literal Translation- [4]

    Rom 1:26  Because of this did God give them up to dishonourable affections, for even their females did change the natural use into that against nature;
    Rom 1:27  and in like manner also the males having left the natural use of the female, did burn in their longing toward one another; males with males working shame, and the recompense of their error that was fit, in themselves receiving.
    Rom 1:28  And, according as they did not approve of having God in knowledge, God gave them up to a disapproved mind, to do the things not seemly;


    I have selected one of the many references from the Quran, the Old and New Testaments (Holy Bible), that condemns the act of homosexuality as being an egregious sin.  Having established such, it  seems a little disingenuous that the ant-Christian / pro-homosexual movement, in America, would be so vocal against Christianity while turning a mute tongue to Islam… or does it.

    Duke’s Downsized Call to Prayer Draws Hundreds in Support of School’s Muslims

    Hundreds of students of varying religions gathered outside of the chapel on Duke University’s campus Friday, , to take part in an Islamic call to prayer — in support of the school’s Muslim population, which had been offered then denied the opportunity to broadcast the call from the chapel’s bell tower.

    The adhan was heard over a small amplifier on Friday, but Duke had announced Tuesday that the three minute chant would resonate from the chapel’s bell tower each Friday before the Duke Muslim Students Association met for their weekly prayers in the chapel’s basement, as they have been doing for years.

    "This opportunity represents a larger commitment to religious pluralism that is at the heart of Duke’s mission," Christy Lohr Sapp, the chapel’s associate dean for religious life, had said in an earlier statement. In an article in the News & Observer of Raleigh, Lorr Sapp elaborated that recent attacks in Paris and Pakistan had shed a light on Muslims that wasn’t accurate, and Duke championed the more public call to prayer to celebrate a Muslim community that is "peaceful and prayerful." [5]

    January 17, 2016

    Muslim leaders from across America will gather in Texas this weekend to hold the annual Stand With the Prophet in Honor and Respect conference, a weekend forum that is being billed as a “movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message,” according to event information.

    The Saturday event, which seeks to combat “Islamophobes in America” who have turned the Islamic Prophet Muhammad “into an object of hate,” according to organizers, comes just a week after radicalized Islamists in France killed 17 people.

    “This is not an event. It is the beginning of a movement,” organizers write on their website, which blames Americans for giving Islam a bad name. “A movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message.”

    Evangelist Franklin Graham was particularly opposed to the call the prayer idea, taking to Twitter and Facebook to discourage alumni and donors from supporting the school until Duke reversed their decision.

    "As Christianity is being excluded from the public square and followers of Islam are raping, butchering, and beheading Christians, Jews, and anyone who doesn’t submit to their Sharia Islamic law, Duke is promoting this in the name of religious pluralism," Graham said. [6]

    While Islam is being promoted as a ‘religion of peace’ across the west, in the shadow of this past weeks rampage, the homosexual community’s silence is deafening. When Sharia Islamic Law comes to America, it will be interesting to see how the two ‘spirits’ get along.

    Pray for the peace of Yeshua

    oh, love of God

     

    CHRISTIAN HYMN – ‘The Love of God’

    Fredrick M. Lehman _1917

    The love of God is greater far
    Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
    It goes beyond the highest star,
    And reaches to the lowest hell;
    The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
    God gave His Son to win;
    His erring child He reconciled,
    And pardoned from his sin

     

    Refrain:

    Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!

    How measureless and strong!

    It shall forevermore endure—

    The saints’ and angels’ song.

    When years of time shall pass away,
    And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
    When men who here refuse to pray,
    On rocks and hills and mountains call,
    God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
    All measureless and strong;
    Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
    The saints’ and angels’ song. [Refrain]

     

    Could we with ink the ocean fill,
    And were the skies of parchment made,
    Were every stalk on earth a quill,
    And every man a scribe by trade;
    To write the love of God above
    Would drain the ocean dry;
    Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
    Though stretched from sky to sky.
    [Refrain]


    Above is one of my favorite Christian hymns, ‘The Love of God’ written by Fredrik M. Lehman. Some years after Lehman wrote the hymn, he told a story of how he had found the third stanza of the hymn “penciled on the wall of a patient’s room in an insane asylum after he had been carried to his grave.” Lehman added, “We picked up a scrap of paper and, seated upon an empty lemon box, pushed against the wall with a stub pencil, added the (first) two stanzas and chorus of the song.” [1]

    We are not told who the patient was or where he found the words. There are a couple of possibilities and quite the contrast.


    The Quran

    The Quran contains two verses strikingly similar to the 3rd stanza in Lehman’s hymn:

    “Were the sea ink for the words of my Lord, the sea would surely fail before the words of my Lord fail.” (Sura 18, verse 109)
    And
    “Were the trees that are in the earth pens, were the sea ink with seven more seas to swell its tide, the words of God would not be spent.” (Sura 31, verse 27).

    Muslims believe that the Quran was verbally revealed by God to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel (Jibril), gradually over a period of approximately 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 CE when Muhammad was 40, and concluding in 632 CE, the year of his death. [2]


    The Akdamut

    There is another spiritual literary work that uses this similar wording.

    The Akdamut is a Jewish writing that was written by Rabbi Meir ben Isaac Nehorai (c.1030-1096). The Akdamut (entire poem is 90 versus) was read on Shavuot as a celebrations of God’s gift of the Torah to the Jewish people. When the Torah was read publicly, the words were translated into Aramaic so the worshipers could better understand what had been read. Again, we are not sure if Rabbi Meir received the words from an earlier source.

    For Shavuot-

    Before reading the ten divine commands, O let me speak in awe two words, or three, Of the One who wrought the world and sustained it since time’s beginning.

    At God’s command is infinite power, which words cannot define. Were all the skies parchment, and all the reeds pens, and all the oceans ink, and all who dwell on earth scribes, God’s grandeur could not be told.

    Sovereign over the heavens above, God reigns supreme on earth below. God launched creation unaided and contains it in the bound of His law.

    Without weariness, God created, only by divine will, uttered in a gentle sound. God wrought His works in six days, then established His glorious sovereignty over the life of the universe.

    Myriads of angelic host serve God, Divine messengers that propel life’s destiny. They arise each morning to their calling.

    The adoption of the Akdamut into the regular liturgy took some time; it is not mentioned as part of the Shavuos liturgy until the first decade of the 15th century and the earliest prayer book to contain it was published in 1557[3]


    So the question is left unanswered… the origin of the 3rd stanza?

    Now if one comes from the other, the origination would have to be the Quran, as it was written almost 400 years before Rabbi Mier was born. But this can be nothing more than speculation or coincidence at best.

    Others might argue that the words scrawled on the wall of the insane asylum have no association with the Akdamut or the Quran, only an uncanny similarity.

    One thing that cannot be argued, is the greatness of God’s love for humanity.

    Consider such a love… “for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”, the Creator, taking on flesh and blood so that He could die for His creation.  “He who knew no sin becoming sin that His creation might have His righteousness.” Oh, love of God!

    I’ll bet, if it were left to you or I to write God’s love song, we would not have written in the same manner as He did. “For greater love hath no man than this, that he would lay down his life for a friend”.

    My prayer for the reader is that you will find the peace of Yeshua , which can only be found in the love of God… “Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved!”

    ‘a common word’….. Chrislam

    What is Chrislam?

    Chrislam is a religious movement that had its origin in Nigeria. Its agenda is a global attempt to commingle  the teachings and practices of Christianity and Islam under one large religious umbrella.

    There are two different religious movements of Chrislam in Nigeria, one called Ifeoluwa and founded by Tela Tella in the 1980s and another called Oke-Tude founded by Samson Saka in 1999. Tela Tella claims that an angel of God came to him and told him that he gave him the mission and the name “Ifeoluwa: The Will of God Mission”. [1]

    It recognizes both the Bible and Qur’an as holy books and reads from both sources during its gatherings. Likewise, both Christian and Muslim holidays are celebrated as equal. God and Allah are considered the same god and the Chrislamic people believe that Muhammad, Moses and Jesus were all great prophets and we need to love them all. [1]

    Spiritual sirens should be sounding at this point of the read. Muhammad and Moses were but mere man, but the Christian Faith teaches that Jesus was Yeshua ha Mashiach… God in the flesh! Islam and Judaism DO NOT believe the same..

    In an attempt to bring about Chrislam’s unification, the Coexist Foundation has filled the role that  Satan is using to drive this spiritual awaking globally.

    To learn more about the Coexist Foundation click on the Coexist Foundation link in the paragraph below, but BEWARE! clicking on the link  haphazardly could be dangerous to your spiritual health, even though  you attend church with some regularity. For one to entertain  thoughts of error, without having a sound teaching in God’s word, can leave one in a very  vulnerable condition and found wanting.

    WARNING

    “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity (singleness) that is in Christ.”

    The   Coexist Foundation  is a charitable organization based in Washington, DC and London, England, which aims to advance social cohesion through education and innovation. en.wikipedia.org

    So  with  education as a  focus,  the  Coexist   Foundation  has merged  with the   Yale Center of Faith & Culture to take the spiritual error to the collegiate level of the American society. This modus operandi has proven to be a very productive avenue for dispensing both error and moral decay to our society for decades, so no reason to change the tactic at this stage of the game.

    It is pretty apparent that Yale University is nothing less than the mouth piece for the Coexist Foundation.

     

    The goal of the Reconciliation Program is to promote reconciliation between Muslims and Christians, and between Muslim-majority nations and the West, drawing on the resources of the Abrahamic faiths and the teachings and person of Jesus.”

    The curriculum is the same, down to the very use of the scriptures from the Qur’an, the Holy Bible and the Torah to propagate their deception…

    Bring about reconciliation between your brothers, and fear God, that you may receive mercy. —  Qur’an, Surat al-Hujurat (49):10

    In Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
    —  New Testament, 2 Corinthians 5:19

    You shall not take vengeance nor bear any grudge against any of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself. —  Torah, Leviticus 19:18

    Needless to say, the non-profit organization is financially sound and their agenda well established …

    “they hope that their research and resulting publications may provide a fresh approach and new foundations to help Muslims, Christians and Jews understand one another more sympathetically.”

    I find it somewhat perplexing that the COEXIST bumper-stickers are becoming more prevalent among the protestant churches all across America. Just reinforces the fact that there is a spiritual ignorance of the same.

    The organization’s to attempt to repair the divides caused by prejudice, hate and violence, by creating opportunity for people to work and learn together, in order to help build relationships, knowledge and common purpose to advance coexistence, is an admirable goal, but when the cause begins to dabble in the spiritual realm, it can only be likened to the mixing of oil and water. The two are diametrically opposed and not compatible at all. Even if you shake the two vigorously, it seems that the two substrates are comingled, but when the container is left stagnate, the blending will only return to its separated state. For it is impossible for “the two to become one”!

     


    So how should the church in America respond to such deception? We would do well to consider how Zerrubbabel, Jeshua and the rest of the chief of the father’s of Israel handled a similar situation, when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin made an offer to help rebuild the temple after the captivity.

    In the book of Ezra, we find the account of Israel, post Babylonian captivity. Zerrubbabel took 49,897 of the congregation and returned to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple.

    As the reconstruction was under way, we are told the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the Lord God of Israel. Then they came to Zerrubbabel and to the chief of the fathers and said unto them, “Let us build with you, for we seek your God as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esar-had-don king of Assur.” Ezra 4:1-2

    Zerrubbabel and Jeshua and  the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them “Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the Lord God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us”. Ezra 4:3-4

    The adversaries of Judah and Benjamin, feigned them selves as seekers of the same God as Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but Zerrubbabel and Jeshua had no part of their deception. We would do well to learn from the same.. After all, oil and water do not mix very well, at least for any extended period of time.

     

    Gird  up the loins of your minds lest you find yourself wallowing in this pool of deception.

    the Balm of Gilead’s sweet aroma

    Myrrh gum is commonly harvested from the species Commiphora myrrha, which is native to Yemen, Somalia,Eritrea and eastern Ethiopia. Another farmed species is C. momol. The related Commiphora gileadensis, native to Eastern Mediterranean and particularly the Arabian Peninsula, is the biblically referenced Balm of Gilead,also known as Balsam of Mecca. Several other species yield bdellium and Indian myrrh. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myrrh

    Where there is no cross, there is no crown. This lesson cannot be learned from books, and men do not usually taste this sweetness. This rich life does not exist in a comfortable environment. If the spices are not refined to become oil, the fragrance of the perfume cannot flow forth; and if the grapes are not crushed in the vat, they will not become wine.

    FROM A CHINESE CHRISTIAN

    He was the most wanted criminal in all of Saudi Arabia. He was not wanted for robbery, or murder, or rape. He was wanted for being a Christian pastor and for leading a large secret church in the Saudi Arabian capital city.

        Without being charged, the pastor was taken from his home and into a room with three men. There he was slapped, kicked, and punched. The most painful abuse was the lashes on the bottoms of his feet. When the lashing was done, his hands and feet were the purple color of eggplant.
        In the midst of that pain, the torturers ordered the Christian to stand. “I cannot,” he told them. Every square inch of his feet hurt, and there was no way to support his weight. “Please just allow me to kneel.” The torturers refused.
        While the three men beat him, the pastor prayed for them. His prayers reminded him of a verse. “For he will command his angels . . . they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone” (Psalm 91:11–12). In spite of his feet, Wally stood straight up among the men. They were shocked that he could stand after such a beating.
        “I was standing on the hands of God’s angels,” the Christian pastor  later said. “They could not see angels, but I felt that they were there to help me stand.” – VOM

    And a Christian pastor is the most wanted criminal in all of Saudi Arabia?

    Just for the record, Saudi Arabia’s support for anti-Christian activities does not take the Body of Christ by surprise, nor does the United States support for Saudi Arabia. There is a kindred spirit that opposes the Christ and His gospel… and that spirit is alive and well, throughout the whole world.

    Map – Persecution of Christians in the Muslim World  Islamization Watch Blog

    From the above map we start to understand why a Christian pastor would be the most wanted criminal in Saudi Arabia. The “RELIGION OF PEACE” doesn’t tolerate any religion but Islam. The strange thing is, the whole world seems to have believed the ‘LIE’!

    Pray for our brothers and sisters that are living in anti-Christian world.

    Spiritual Salmonella Sprawled Across a Chick-fil-A

    Chick-fil-A Vandal Comes Out of the Closet

    Homosexual activists vandalized a Chick-fil-A in Torrance, California. The graffiti showed a cow with the writing "Tastes like hate."

    Homosexual LA artist, Manny Castro, has come forward as the vandal. Castro has been pretty open about his actions and has celebrated with other radical activists.

    Homosexuals hate Christians for believing Scripture and not accepting or affirming their sinful lifestyle as legitimate. [1]

     

    Muslim Terrorists Tell Nigeria’s Christian President: ‘Convert or Resign’

    (CNSNews.com) – Boko Haram is demanding that Nigeria’s Christian president convert to Islam or resign, a stance that again calls into question the Obama administration’s playing down of religion as the primary motivation for the radical group.

    In an online video clip released over the weekend, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau told President Goodluck Jonathan to “repent and forsake Christianity.”

    The News Agency of Nigeria said Shekau, speaking in Hausa, said the president should convert or resign if he wanted Boko Haram to end its violent campaign. [2]

    Burnt Church

    Burnt Church

    In northern Nigeria, radical Muslims of the Boko Haram sect have chosen Sunday as their favored day for bombing churches.

    “We attacked simply because it’s a church, and we can decide to attack any other church. We have just started.” -Boko Haram spokesperson in a UPI interview

    Many Christians have been martyred in Nigeria, including church leaders, the elderly and even children in Sunday school classes. While some want to retaliate against their Muslim attackers, many Christian leaders urge prayer as the best recourse. [3]

     

    Inviting an enemy to convert to Islam or face the consequences is a longstanding tradition in Islam, modeled on the example set by the religion’s seventh century prophet.

    A hadith (the writings and sayings of the prophet) by Sahih al-Bukhari quotes Mohammed as saying, “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform a that, then they save their lives an property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.”

    Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for dozens of deadly bombings and other attacks, mostly targeting Christians in northern parts of Africa’s most populous country. It has vowed to cleanse northern Nigeria of Christians.

    Despite its increasingly bloody campaign, the Obama administration so far has resisted calls by U.S. lawmakers to designate Boko Haram as a foreign terrorist organization (FTO) under American law. [2]


    Homosexual Iranians executed for homosexual lifestyle:

    Following photo is linked to an article posted by this author in December of 2008. Please read the article in its entirety at the link below. The times online.co.uk article linked to the post has been removed, but there are enough quotes from the Times article to get the full intent of the message.

    ‘do as I say, not as I do… from the homosexual perspective’

    Even though the above article was posted in 2008, there still seems to be some strong similarities in this day we are living.

    A Kindred Spirit

    The spirit that is found in both the radical homosexual and radical Islamist has the same author (origin) and is without question, an anti-Christ spirit. Opposition from this spirit is vehement and openly defiant when it encounters the unadulterated teaching of God’s word.


    Islamic Teaching from the Quran

    Quran Teachings- “A religion of peace”, quite the contrary. A religion of hate and destruction!

    Of the Unbelievers: Sura 4:89 “seize them and slay them wherever you find them: and in any case take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

    Slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush. (Sura 9:5)

    8:59-60 “Let not the unbelievers think that they can get the better (of the godly): they will never frustrate (them). Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.”

    Another translation makes this plain – “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them.”


    As you can see from the Quranic teaching, radical Islam does not differentiate between the homosexual and the Christian. In adherence to the Quran’s teaching, Islam would hang the both (homosexual and Christian) from the same rope, or decapitate the infidel for emphasis. So much for the religion of peace and a societies freedom of choice and speech…

    While the spirit in the radical homosexual is akin to this Islamic spirit it is somewhat different in its mode of operation. Like the Islamic spirit,  the attacks against the clear teaching of God’s word is very vocal and on some occasions can manifest rather violent  tendencies against those who follow Jesus. Ironic though, this homosexual spirit is seemingly tight lipped concerning the destructive practices of the Islamic religion.

    Contrast the teaching of Jesus Christ with Islam. Christ’s message was immersed in mercy and grace. Jesus was a ‘friend of sinners’, offering a message of hope, peace and reconciliation to God, while Islam’s god decries not only the Christian faith, but the homosexual alike and would desire nothing less than total destruction of the both… infidels in the eyes of Islam. How can the homosexual find this attack by Islam any less offensive than the issue of sin propagated in God’s word?

    At the Heart of the Problem

    The Word of God is the crux of the matter. When one stands upon the clear teaching of God’s holy word, he/she will encounter this radical spirit of opposition.

    Religion does not like for the word of God to belittle it’s god. The thought that there is one True and Living God and He has denounced (in His word) all other gods as foolish and useless does not set well with other religions. They cannot attack God, so they direct the persecution toward His people. This same anti-Christ (religious) spirit opposed Jesus Christ at every turn.

    Additional ‘salt in the wound’ is when an individual stands face to face with the same word and find they are dead in their trespasses and sin and in need of a savior. Sin is not a pretty picture and to constantly be reminded by the Word of God, that all have sinned and that the heart is deceitful above all things is desperately wicked, is not palatable to the flesh.

    We all like to think that we are correct in our thought process. When a man/woman is told that the way that seemeth right unto them is in fact the way of death, the natural tendencies of the human spirit is to resist this truth. For both the radical homosexual and Islamist this kindles the anti-Christ spirit afore mentioned, but for the true follower of Jesus Christ there cannot be a shadow of turning. 

    It has been almost four years since the posting in 2008. Not much has changed. If anything, things have digressed, which are to be expected.

     

    Radical Homosexuality

    It is not enough now that the radical homosexual suppresses the truth of God’s word by their unlawful deeds, but like the radical Islamist, they want to mold the independent thought processes unto their own way of thinking. When it encounters dissension, the attack begins. When the thought process is aligned with the truth of God’s word, the vitriolic attack intensifies.

    What we seeing in America is a concerted effort from every level of our society to not only stop the mouth of free speech, but to completely remove any hint of God’s word from our society. In other words, the homosexual in essence is attempting to make us more like an Islamic nations.

    It is rather strange, to see the radical homosexual continue its vehement spirit of opposition against Christianity, while Islam is seemingly receiving a free pass. As the radical homosexual and radical Islamist fight for the thought process of our society, and the both seeking to shut out the Word of God, if Islam prevails, where will this leave the homosexual life style?

    Envision this new America… No Christian churches or bible book stores or Christian doctrine permeating the radio or television. No need to Google Christianity because there will no Christian churches, only mosque in every town in America with the call to daily prayers vocalized across the airwaves. Oh, and in every town square, a gallows, for non-conforming thinkers. And instead of freedom of speech and independent thinking, Shuria law. You think Chick-fil-A taste like hate… smoke this new America over my friend! What you’ll find is a catch-22 for a hopeless society immersed in darkness, with no Light at the end of the tunnel.

     

     

    Radical Islam

    The spirit of radical Islam has not changed. It continues its attempt to stop the mouths and the testimony of the people of God. When all measures to force their thought processes to align with Islam fails, the only option left is annihilation. In the most brutal manner, but to my brothers and sisters in Christ, stand firm, for our Lord has already traveled this road and has overcome. We will too!

     

    The Heart of the Problem

    The real problem is God’s word has not changed. A word that is cemented in the righteousness of a Holy, True, and Living God cannot and will not change. His word is the same today, the same yesterday and forever, just like His mercy and forgiveness.

    It is this same word that has the power to change the spirit of homosexuality and Islam. The Ethiopian can not change the color of his skin nor the leopard his spots, but when a man is born again, he is a new creature in Christ. Old things are passed away and all things shall become new.

    May you come face to face with Jesus (Yeshua, Isa) and find the peace that surpasses understanding.

      "Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me." Martin Niemoller

      “Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, ‘But we knew nothing about this’, does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who guards your life know it? Will not He repay each one according to what he has done?” Proverbs 24:11-12
