Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And “The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse”

Revelation 6:1, “And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see…”

Were John’s apocalyptic snapshots and descriptions of the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” in the Book of Revelation pointing to events that would only take place nearly 2000 years after the visions were first revealed? All too often, many of today’s Christian teachers and Bible prophecy experts have repeated the belief that the entirety of the Book of Revelation, with the exception of the first three chapters, are to be understood in futuristic terms only. I have done this myself in the past. Whether it be the Seven Seals or the Seven Trumpets or the Seven Bowls of wrath, everything contained therein and described by John from Revelation 4:1 onward must be treated as little more than a description of apocalyptic earth-shattering events that we, as Christians, will never witness taking place upon the world in which we live, events that can only begin to come to fruition after an imminent rapture has suddenly removed all followers of Christ from the face of the earth to deliver them from the impending wrath of God and the last-days Beast of Revelation. If we take the time to engage in a careful examination of the text, however, we may begin to see that some of the events often understood as yet to come, are events that are already taking place today.

An Overview Of History: The Islamic Beast Of Revelation – The Past And The Present

After careful study, I have come to the conclusion that, judging from the description of events and their sequence provided for us in Scripture, the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” described in the first four Seals of Revelation 6 are four separate Read more…

Christian Bishop In Egypt: Christians Are Currently Experiencing Their Worst Time In Recent Centuries, Many Now Unable To Buy Or Sell

If we believed that all of these things were only supposed to happen after the rapture of the Church, then it’s high time to rethink what we thought we knew …

Revelation 13:16-18, “… it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate ['psēphizō' - reckon] the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is χξς.”

CopticChristianPersecution
ACN News – “Christians in Egypt are currently experiencing their worst time in recent centuries. This statement was made by the Coptic Orthodox Bishop Stephanos of Beba and Elfashn to the international Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN). Christians are being violently killed under the eyes of the international media. Also, for the first time in many years, churches are being systematically burned and destroyed. The police are taking no action and nobody is punished for it. In the Egyptian media, ‘the facts are systematically covered up in order to keep the international media from reporting the truth and bringing pressure from outside,’ he complained. However, video films showing the massacre of demonstrators on 9 October were broadcast by the three television stations operated by the Coptic Church and have thus also found their way into the international media. This time the attacks on Copts ‘have been better documented’.

Problems are also experienced in day-to-day life because calls are often made in the media not to buy from Christian merchants or to sell anything to Christians. Businessmen are therefore faced with a struggle for economic survival. Christians are indirectly excluded from employment, for example by job advertisements specifying ‘a female employee with headscarf’. Attempts are being made ‘to drive the Christians out’.” Read more.

‘Bloody’: Christian Persecution is ‘Coursing Through Muslim-Majority Nations from One End of the Globe to the Other’ – “We hear so often about Muslims as victims of abuse in the West and combatants in the Arab Spring’s fight against tyranny. But, in fact, a wholly different kind of war is underway—an unrecognized battle costing thousands of lives. Christians are being killed in the Islamic world because of their religion. It is a rising genocide that ought to provoke global alarm… In recent years the violent oppression of Christian minorities has become the norm in Muslim-majority nations stretching from West Africa and the Middle East to South Asia and Oceania. In some countries it is governments and their agents that have burned churches and imprisoned parishioners. In others, rebel groups and vigilantes have taken matters into their own hands…” Read more.

Nigeria: Muslims Attack Christian Villages In Plateau And Kaduna States In Search Of Christians To Kill

08/21/2014 1 comment

Because “Allah” hath spoken …

Qur’an: Sura 4:89, “Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers [non-Muslims] wherever you find them.”

Revelation 14:12, “Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.”

Morning Star News – “The 14 people killed in an attack by Muslim Fulani herdsmen last week in Plateau state were Christians killed for their faith, not cattlemen slain for their livestock, area Christians said.

In Yelwa, where Muslim Fulani cattlemen have largely replaced Christian ethnicities over the years by means of slash-and-shoot attacks, a throng of heavily armed herdsmen attacked the remnant Christian community in the early hours of Aug. 11, the sources said.

‘These Muslim Fulani gunmen were more than 150, and they were armed,’ a 40-year-old Christian from the village who fled to Jos told Morning Star News. ‘They attacked us in Yelwa. Many of the members of our community were killed by them. And they also burned down our houses. Those of us who survived had to run out of the village, some to Shendam town and others to places like Garkawa, Langtang, Pankshin or Jos.’

Yelwa is part of the Shendam Local Government Area in the southern part of Plateau state. On the same morning in Zarazong, in the Jos East Local Government Area, a group of gunmen killed two other Christians, and between the two villages 15 homes were burned down, sources said.

‘The gunmen came into the village and began shooting indiscriminately – I saw two dead bodies as I tried escaping from our village,’ said a 23-year-old woman of Zarazong whose name, like that of the previous source, is withheld for security reasons. ‘I cannot for now say who the victims are, as it was difficult for me to know who they are as I was running away. But, I know they are from our village. We are all Christians in our village and are members of COCIN [Church of Christ in Nations].’

Stories of cattle-rustling as a motive for the attacks seeped into the Nigerian press as a means of dousing potential religious conflict, but any stolen cattle was incidental to the attacks, sources said.

The Rev. Sonja Bewarang, chairman of the Plateau chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, confirmed the killings and house burnings.” Read more.

Cairoscene – “A British mum has vowed to become the first female ISIS executioner, just hours after the group beheaded US journalist James Foley.

Khadijah Dare, who posts using the Twitter name Muhajirah fi Sham , meaning ‘immigrant in Syria,’ left the UK in 2012.

Last night, the 22-year-old mother-of-one, launched a sickening tirade and promised to become the group’s first female murder queen.

She tweeted: ‘Any links 4 da execution of da journalist plz. Allahu Akbar. UK must b shaking up haha. I wna b da 1st UK woman 2 kill a UK or US terorrist!(sic)’.

Dare previously sparked outrage after pictures emerged of her toddler son holding an AK47.

Earlier this year, the radical posted a worrying message calling for fellow British people to join her, saying: ‘All da people back in dar ul kufr [land of disbelievers] what are you waiting for … hurry up and join da caravan to where the laws of allah is implemented.’

‘Shame on all those people who afford fancy meals and clothes and do not make hijra [the word for Mohammad’s journey]. Shame on you.’

Dare has previously described witnessing the execution of a young ‘rapist’ in Raqqa, the Syrian town where she lives with her Swedish husband.

She tweeted: ‘On da way 2 da market in Manbij, me and sum sisters was wonderin wat da commotion was all about…On da way back frm da market, we see da body of a young man, with blood comin his nose…tied onto a tree.’

UK: Muslim Preacher Gloats Over Beheading Of US Journalist, Local Jihadists Proud Killer Was British

Revelation 9:21a, “And they did not repent of their murders …”

This unrepentant imam, Anjem Choudary, contends that all non-Muslims are guilty of crimes against “Allah” for the simple fact that they are not Muslim. During an interview with the BBC in 2005, Choudary asserted that only Muslims were innocent people. Non-Muslims “have not accepted Islam, and as far as we are concerned, that is a crime against [Allah] … you are guilty of not believing in [Allah].” If you don’t believe in “Allah” then you’ve rejected the scriptures of the “holy” Qur’an. If you’ve rejected the “holy” Qur’an then you must be embracing something else. And to embrace something else is a bloody capital offense that deserves a bloody end …

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

Anjem Choudary: In Love With Hate

Anjem Choudary: In Love With Hate

By John Simpson, Matt Charles and Duncan Gardham, The Times – “British jihadists gloated and cracked jokes as the news of James Foley’s death spread yesterday.

Some posted in Arabic, others in English. All legitimised the brutal act as religiously ordained.

Abu Aminah, under the username of @ghazisami, tweeted: ‘My hopes and prayers in this whole James Foley fiasco goes to the mujahid executioner. May Allah keep him and his family safe.’ He used verses from the Koran and Hadiths to support the beheading. Indicating that he was British, he said of the knifeman: ‘Half of UK Pakis speak like that.’

Abul Muthanna, a self-described ‘soldier of the Islamic State’, described the British ‘brother’ as a ‘lion’. Tweeting under the username of @abulmuthanna313, he said: ‘They went on a mad one.’ He later wrote: ‘U can call our acts horrific but calling us cowards? Our men love death like u love life, they come at u with explosive belts #DeathSeekers’. The writer is thought to be Nasser Muthana, 20, from Cardiff. His younger brother Aseel, 17, and their friend Reyaad Khan, 20, are among about 500 British jihadists believed to have fought alongside IS forces in Syria and Iraq.

Anjem Choudary, the radical British preacher, said that the killing was the result of the bombing by ‘America and its allies’ and added: ‘You reap what you sow. The effect has a cause.’ He said that Foley ‘got in the way’ and was ‘from their perspective the voice of the Americans and British who has to sell his piece and is not in any way shape or form someone independent’.

He said there was ‘no need’ for journalists to go to Syria to report and they should ‘keep clear and allow the implementation of the Shariah’. ‘Muslims don’t rely on Western journalists,’ he added.

Mr Choudary refused to condemn the killing and said it was irrelevant that the man was from Britain and a British passport was ‘just a travel document’. But he added: ‘Muslims in Britain are much more politicised than other western countries. They talk about jihad, Shariah and call for the khilafah [Muslim state] while others are talking about halal food and circumcision. I am not surprised so many are currently going to Syria and are prepared to sacrifice their lives abroad.’

Junaid Hussain, 19, a British hacker, is believed to have slipped police supervision and escaped to Syria after serving a jail sentence for stealing personal information about Tony Blair.

Calling himself Abu Abdullah al-Britani, he wrote on Twitter: ‘And know that the one who kills for the sake of His Lord will never go to the same place as the one he killed.’

Less than two weeks ago, Mr Hussain posted a photo of a fellow fighter sitting in the front seat of a vehicle, captioned: ‘From the streets of London to the dirt roads of Jihad.’ He also posted pictures of various rifles and his ‘little Princess’ dressed in a full niqab. He has encouraged his followers to take action, saying: ‘Some of you will only move when it is your mum in that prison and your wife that has been raped.’

Abu Turaab al-Kanadi, a Canadian fighter with the username of @AlTuraabSVD, made light of the decapitation, saying it was ‘time to play soccer’…

Abu Bakr Al-Janabi, who tweeted images of other Isis fighters brandishing knives in what he said was preparation for further beheadings, wrote: ‘The man who carried out the execution was British. which send a signal by saying ‘We are everywhere, we will come after you’.” Read more.

Seattle: Muslim Convicted Sex Offender Claiming To Be A Jihadist Suspected In Multiple Killings

08/20/2014 1 comment

We shouldn’t be surprised when those who choose to follow a religion of lawlessness refuse to follow the rule of law …

Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day …”

By Jennifer Sullivan, The Seattle Times – “Ali Muhammad Brown, the convicted sex offender charged with killing two men in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood on June 1, is now suspected of fatally shooting a Skyway man about one month earlier.

Brown, 29, is being investigated in connection with the death of Leroy Henderson in Skyway’s 12200 block of 68th Avenue South shortly after 11:45 p.m. on April 27, according to a King County sheriff’s report. Henderson, 30, was walking home from a nearby store when he was shot several times, the report said.

Detectives linked Brown to Henderson’s slaying through 9-mm bullets and casings found in and around Henderson’s body, according to the report.

Two law-enforcement sources say aggravated-murder charges will be sought against Brown for Henderson’s slaying and could be filed as early as Wednesday.

If that happens, the new murder charge would be the fourth against Brown, who is being held in New Jersey in connection with the June 25 slaying of college student Brendan Tevlin, 19. Brown was arrested last month in West Orange, N.J.

King County prosecutors have already filed two counts of aggravated first-degree murder against Brown in connection with the Leschi slayings of Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, and Ahmed Said, 27.

Police say Brown left with the two victims from RPlace, a gay Capitol Hill nightclub, and drove toward Anderson-Young’s house in Said’s Mitsubishi Galant. As they were outside Anderson-Young’s home, Brown pulled out a gun and killed the men, police said.

Mark Larson, chief of staff for King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg, said they have not decided whether to pursue the death penalty in the deaths of Anderson-Young and Said.

After Brown’s arrest in New Jersey, testing done by the Newark Police Department Crime Lab determined that a 9-mm handgun found on Brown was used to kill all four victims, according to the report.

Brown, a Muslim who law-enforcement sources say claims to be a jihadi, served federal prison time for conspiracy to commit bank fraud in connection with a plot to defraud several banks.” Read more.

Flashback: The ‘Prophet’ Of Islam Exposed: ‘Islam Only Brings Evil On Others Due To Such A Founder And Example’ – “Muhammad, the founder of Islam, should be remembered for his evil that he has caused to the whole of humanity. Contrary to what the Muslims tell you about Muhammad being an example to humanity… Muhammad the founder of Islam is not a prophet of God, but a heartless, degenerate brigand and therefore Islam only brings evil on others due to such a founder and example. Only such a person with no conscience would make a doctrine out of evil behaviour. May God grant Muslims with any conscience in them to leave this evil teaching and go to a better path. Either Christianity or Judaism would be the better alternatives for such people. Praise God that many are leaving because of these evil teachings and more. May Islam be exterminated from both the earth and heaven.” Read more.

For Peaceful Purposes: Muslims Love To Burn “Infidel” Flags And Threaten Mass Killings

By Timothy Whiteman, Examiner – “‘We do not wish to live together with dirty beasts like you…’

The Norwegian news portal VG Nett is reporting that a Muslim terrorist group, Ansar al-Sunna’, is threatening that if a section of the nation’s capitol isn’t transformed into a sharia-complaint Muslim nation, an attack rivaling 9/11 will be launched upon the Scandinavian nation.

VG Nett has stated that the Norwegian Police Security Service (Politiets sikkerhetstjeneste - PST) is already familiar with many members of this particular terror group.

As translated by Michael Laudahn,

“If norwegian soldiers can take planes to Afghanistan, then Osama and Mohammed can also take planes to Norway, inshaAllah.

Now, the government must wake up and assume responsibility, before this war spreads to Norway. Before the counterpart reacts. Before moslems take the step necessary.

Do not confuse the moslems’ silence with weakness. Do not profit from the moslems’ patience. Do not force us to do something that can be avoided. This is not a threat, only the words of truth. The words of justice.

A warning that the consequences can be fatal.

Confirmed: ISIS Beheads US Journalist, Killer May Be British National, Muslims On Twitter Defend Slaughter

Because beheading is, after all, the modus operandi of those who follow and worship Mohammed

Revelation 6:8, “And I looked, and behold a [chlōros - green] horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts [thērion - savage, brutal, beastial men] of the earth…”

SavagesFOX News – “The U.S. intelligence community has confirmed the authenticity of a video showing Islamic State extremists beheading American journalist James Foley, as military analysts and U.S. lawmakers say the execution should be a wake-up call to the need to dismantle the militant organization.

President Obama, currently in Martha’s Vineyard, plans to make a statement at 12:45 p.m. ET.

The remarks come after the White House National Security Council released a brief statement saying the intelligence community reviewed the video and has ‘reached the judgment that this video is authentic.’

The beheading marks the first time the Islamic State — also known as ISIS, or ISIL — has killed an American citizen since the Syrian conflict broke out in March 2011, upping the stakes in an increasingly chaotic and multilayered war.

‘America got a glimpse of exactly who they are,’ House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., told Fox News on Wednesday. ‘This is a group you need to deal with.’

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., called the ‘brutal execution’ of a hostage ‘the clearest indication to date that ISIL has declared war on the United States.’

The militants in the video railed against U.S. airstrikes in Iraq and threatened to kill a second American journalist, depending on Obama’s ‘next decision’ – an apparent reference to U.S. military policy in the region.

The video puts pressure on the White House to weigh the risks of ramping up airstrikes in Iraq targeting the Islamic State, and the possibility that militants could kill more Americans in response.

But in an indication that the U.S. response is not changing, a U.S. official said …” Read more.

Incitement To Violence

By Anthony Weiss, St. Louis Jewish Light – “A Swedish woman wearing a star of David was attacked while walking through a largely Muslim neighborhood in central Sweden.

Anna Sjogren, who is Jewish, discussed the attack on Monday with the World Zionist Organization Center for Countering Antisemitism.

Sjogren was attacked Aug. 14 while walking in Gottsunda, a suburb of the city of Uppsala in central Sweden, according to a report by the Israeli daily Maariv. Sjogren told the newspaper that the incident began when a Muslim girl saw that Sjogren was wearing a Star of David around her neck and spit on her. Sjogren then pushed the girl in retaliation, whereupon she was attacked by a group of Muslim teenagers, whom Sjogren said were wearing scarves with colors of the Palestinian flag.

The attack left Sjogren bruised, with her eyes swollen and her jaw so badly damaged that she was initially unable to speak after the attack.

Sjogren told Maariv that she had not told the Swedish police for fear that giving her name and address would leave her vulnerable to further attack.

Sjogren is reportedly helping to plan a Sept. 7 rally in support of Israel in conjunction with the WZO, something she was involved with before the attack.” Source – St. Louis Jewish Light.
