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.

The Qur’an And Unending, Obligatory War Against The Non-Muslim World

11/28/2014 1 comment

Read the Old Testament and it becomes apparent that it describes much violence and war that took place in the past between Israel and those who sought to oppress and destroy the Hebrew children. Unlike the Bible, however, the Qur’an doesn’t simply describe violence and wars. It calls upon all followers to continue down the same path today …

Qur’an Sura 4:95, “Not equal are those believers [Muslims] who sit at home and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit at home …”

Qur’an Sura 8:39, “And fight with them [non-Muslims] until … religion should be only for Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 4:76, “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 4:76, “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah …”

By Raymond Ibrahim, Gatestone Institute – “News recently emerged that Russia was banning key Islamic scriptures — including Sahih Bukhari — on the charge that they promote ‘exclusivity [supremacism] of one of the world’s religions,’ namely Islam; or, in the words of a senior assistant to the prosecutor of Tatarstan Ruslan Galliev, ‘a militant Islam’ which ‘arouses ethnic, religious enmity.’

If Sahih Bukhari, a nine-volume hadith collection compiled in the 9th century and seen by Sunni Muslims as second in importance only to the Koran itself is being banned for inciting hostility, where does that leave the Koran?

After all, if Sahih Bukhari contains pro-terrorism statements attributed to the prophet of Islam and calls to kill Muslims who leave Islam, the Koran, Islam’s number one holy book itself is full of intolerance and calls for violence against non-believers. A tiny sampling of proclamations from Allah follows:

  • ‘I will cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, so strike [them] upon the necks [behead them] and strike from them every fingertip’’ (Koran 8:12).
  • ‘Fight those among the People of the Book [Christians and Jews] who do not believe in Allah nor the Last Day, who do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden, and who do not embrace the religion of truth [Islam], until they pay the jizya with willing submissiveness and feel themselves utterly subdued’ (Koran 9:29).
  • ‘Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever you find them — seize them, besiege them, and make ready to ambush them!’ (Koran 9:5).
  • ‘Fighting has been enjoined upon you [Muslims] while it is hateful to you’ (2:216).

That Islam’s core texts incite violence and intolerance has many ramifications, for those willing to go down this path of logic.

For example, as I argued more fully here, although Muslims around the world, especially in the guise of the 57-member state Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), continue to push for the enforcement of ‘religious defamation’ laws in the international arena, one great irony is lost, especially on Muslims: if such laws would ban movies and cartoons that defame Islam, they would also, by logical extension, need to ban the religion of Islam itself — the only religion whose core texts actively defame other religions.

Consider what the word ‘defamation’ means: ‘to blacken another’s reputation’ and ‘false or unjustified injury of the good reputation of another, as by slander or libel,’ are typical dictionary definitions.

What, then, do we do with Islam’s core religious texts — not just Sahih Bukhari but the Koran itself, which slanders, denigrates and blackens the reputation of other religions?

Consider Christianity alone: Koran 5:73 declares that ‘Infidels are they who say God [or ‘Allah’] is one of three,’ a reference to the Christian Trinity; Koran 5:72 says ‘Infidels are they who say God is the Christ, [Jesus] son of Mary'; and Koran 9:30 complains that ‘the Christians say the Christ is the son of God … may Allah’s curse be upon them!’

Surely such verses defame the Christian religion and its central tenets — not to mention create hostility towards its practitioners.

In short, the argument that some Islamic books should be banned on grounds that they incite segregation and violence is applicable to the Koran itself, which Read more…

Nigeria: Massive Deaths And Injuries Reported After “Religion Of Peace” Killers Attack Mosque For Resisting Terrorism

11/28/2014 1 comment

Yet again we have more body parts and chunks of flesh spreading the message of Islam as those still with legs to run are bathed in bullets, all because Boko Haram’s feelings were hurt by a few “corrupt” things being disseminated by the leader of Kano’s Grand Mosque. The mosque’s Emir had reportedly encouraged others to take up arms against Boko Haram’s purveyors of death and destruction. But any call to fight against terrorism was evidently akin to fighting against “Allah” and his messenger of misery. And for many unfortunate attendees, their own Qur’an had a thing or two to say about that …

Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The “Prophet” Of Islam, Mohammed

Qur’an Sura 5:33a, “Surely the only recompense of the ones who war against Allah and His Messenger and diligently endeavor to do corruption in the earth, is that they should be all massacred or crucified, or that their hands and legs should be cut asunder alternately or that they should be exiled from the land …” [Or, in the 21st century, blown to bits and pieces]

Qur’an Sura 48:29, “Mohammed is [Allah’s] apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.”

Sky News – “At least 92 people are feared dead and scores more injured after gunmen and suicide bombers attacked a mosque in northern Nigeria.

Nigerian official Captain Ikechukwu Eze said the blasts occurred at the main mosque in Nigeria’s second-largest city, Kano.

Reuters also reported that gunmen opened fire on worshippers in the attack which analysts said bore the hallmarks of one carried out by Islamist militant group Boko Haram.

Hundreds had been gathering to listen to a sermon from the city’s chief imam and prayers had got under way at around 2pm, local time.

Witness Aminu Abdullahi said: ‘Two bombs exploded, one after the other, in the premises of the Grand Mosque seconds after the prayers had started.’

He said another bomb went off nearby, but reports on the actual number of blasts differed.

The mosque’s leader is the Emir of Kano, the second highest Islamic authority in the country. Reports also varied as to whether he was present at the time.

The Emir, who is also known as Muhammad Sanusi II, said last week at the mosque that people in the north of Nigeria should take up arms against Boko Haram.

The Islamist organisation has been fighting a guerilla war to bring about a hardline Islamic state since 2009.

Boko Haram was responsible for the kidnap of more than 200 teenage girls from a school in the northern town of Chibok in April this year.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the country, more than 1.5 million Nigerians displaced by Boko Haram have been flocking to refugee camps across the country’s northeast, where facilities are overcrowded and there is a shortage of supplies.” Source – Sky News.

Missouri: Two Converts To Islam Charged With Plotting To Blow Up Gateway Arch, Kill Prosecutor And Ferguson Police Chief

After all, the rule for every radical is to never let a serious crisis go to waste …

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” – Rahm Emmanuel, former White House Chief of Staff for Barack Obama, referring to Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

By Christine Byers, St. Louis Post Dispatch – “Two men indicted last week on federal weapons charges allegedly had plans to bomb the Gateway Arch — and to kill St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch and Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson — the Post-Dispatch has learned.

Sources close to the investigation were uncertain whether the men had the capability to carry out the plans, although the two allegedly did buy what they thought was a pipe bomb in an undercover law enforcement sting.

The men wanted to acquire two more bombs, the sources said, but could not afford to do it until one suspect’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer card was replenished.

An indictment, with no mention of bombs or killings, was returned in federal court here Nov. 19 and unsealed Fridayupon the arrest of Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Ali Davis. Their addresses and Baldwin’s age were not available; Davis is 22.

The arrest came three days before McCulloch revealed that a grand jury would not indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the controversial killing of Michael Brown. The announcement triggered looting and multiple arsons in Ferguson.

The charges say that between Nov. 1 and Nov. 13, at the Cabela’s store in Hazelwood, Baldwin claimed to be buying two Hi-Point .45-caliber pistols for himself when they were really for another person. Brandon also is known as Brandon Muhammad, according to court documents, and Davis now goes by the last name Ali, his attorney said. Each faces a charge of aiding and abetting the making of a false written statement made in connection with a firearms purchase.

The sources said additional charges, reflecting the plot, were expected to be filed. They said Davis was considered the leader of the plot, which police documented on hidden video.” Read more.

“They May Go After Christians”: US Reportedly “Alarmed” By The Rate At Which ISIS Is Spreading Into Northern Africa

The article seems to suggest that nobody in the Obama Administration saw it coming, but the fact of the matter is they did. They simply chose to do nothing about it

Daniel 11:43, “He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Nubians [Sudan] in submission.”

Qur’an Sura 18:26, “[Allah] maketh none to share in his government.”

Qur’an Sura 18:26, “[Allah] maketh none to share in his government.”

By Guy Taylor, The Washington Times – “In its war to create a caliphate across Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State is opening a front in North Africa, where affiliated militants are wreaking havoc in eastern Libya and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula — presenting a complex challenge for Washington and its allies in the region.

Through its savvy use of social media and slick production of recruitment videos, the Islamic State — also known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL — is attracting a growing number of individual jihadis to its harsh interpretation of Islamic, or Shariah, law.

‘ISIL’s stated goal of expanding its caliphate and its adherence to a strict form of Shariah has definitely resonated with a collection of extremists across North Africa, who appear to be mimicking ISIL’s rhetoric and brutality,’ said a U.S. intelligence official who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss security issues freely.

What remains to be seen is whether the region will face a surge of unbridled Islamic State-style violence, including beheadings. Counterterrorism analysts say there is little doubt of that — especially in Libya, where the government is under threat of being overrun by militants, and in Egypt, where the military has struggled to contain Sinai extremists for years.

‘I don’t think there’s any doubt that the Islamic State is going to commit and claim responsibility for an increasing number of attacks in North Africa, both in Libya and in the Sinai during the year ahead,’ said Thomas Joscelyn, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies in Washington.

‘But it’s not yet clear how it’s going to play out,’ Mr. Joscelyn said. ‘If they go in the direction of more horror killings the way the Islamic State is doing in Syria and Iraq, they may go after Christians and others, and that could end up triggering sectarian violence in Egypt. But that remains to be seen.’

The U.S. intelligence community regards the Islamic State as the world’s most violent terrorist organization, and officials say its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, sees himself as a kind of Osama bin Laden figure.” Read more.

Pakistan: Muslims Expel All Christians From Village

11/27/2014 1 comment

Hating Christians. Whether outwardly or inwardly, it’s what every “good” Muslim must do …

“[B]elievers are allowed to show friendship outwardly, but never inwardly” –  Ibn Kathir, Renowned Islamic Scholar

Qur’an Sura 5:51, “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them …”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘In a Pakistani village in the Punjab province, Christian families are being forced to leave because a Christian married a Muslim woman. The Muslims in this village became enraged when this occurred and began threatening them.’ Islamic law forbids Muslim women from marrying non-Muslim men. Muslim men can marry non-Muslim women, but not the other way around: the intention of this inconsistency is inherently supremacist.

‘Muslims Expel All Christians From a Village in Pakistan,’ Aleteia, November 26, 2014:

Pakistan/Aleteia (Aleteia.org/ar) – In a Pakistani village in the Punjab province, Christian families are being forced to leave because a Christian married a Muslim woman. The Muslims in this village became enraged when this occurred and began threatening them.

This event is happening as little was two weeks after the atrocious crime wherein a Christian couple was burned in a brick kiln by a Muslim mob. The couple had been working there when they were accused of blasphemy; a crime they did not commit. The Punjab has once again become the scene for a new tragedy.

All of the Christian families in one of the villages of the Sahiwal region were forced to flee from their homes due to these threats from Muslims. They condemned one of the Christians for getting married to someone from their group. ‘Abid Masih, a friend of the couple, revealed to Press Trust of India news agency on the 13th of November that, “They were married in October and once the Muslims in the village learned of the marriage they demanded that the young woman be returned or we would bear the consequences.”

Prohibited by Islamic Law
The names of the newly married couple are Shahab Masih and Ruksana Kosar, who is in her twenties. They no longer live in the village where the young woman was raised. They now live in the Khanewal region, which is where the young Christian man lived. The future couple met in the village of Sahiwal, where Shahab frequently traveled to visit his family.

When the news of the marriage was learned, the Muslims in Sahiwal attacked Shahab’s family as well as other Christian families in the village. The Muslims demanded that Ruksana be returned immediately, according to Sharia which prohibits Muslim women from marrying a man from another religion.

In this regard ‘Abid clarified saying, “We told them that Shahab is now living in Khanewal with his wife and that it would be better for them to go and discuss the matter with him there. However, they would not listen. Then, the Muslim woman’s father Jamil Hussein proceeded to file a complaint with the Shahkot police, accusing Shahab and two of his family members with kidnapping. Meanwhile, the entire Muslim community was threatening to kill Shahab’s father and all of the village’s Christians.

The Police provided no assistance
The Christians’ pleas for help from the local police were all in vain. In light of this fact, the nine Christian families living in Sahiwal (approximately 25 people) were forced to flee during the night leaving their homes and jobs. The Investigator, Muhammad Riyad from the Shahkot police defended himself by saying, “We have not arrested anyone yet due to the sensitive nature of this case. We will not take any further steps before undergoing a thorough investigation.”…

“They Even Cut The Throats Of The Babies”: Yazidi Survivors Share How They Lost Their Families To ISIS

11/27/2014 1 comment

The ancient Aztecs killed children for the clouds of “Tlaloc.” The Phoenicians killed children for the coals of “Molech.” The Jihadists kill children for the cause of “Allah.” No matter what name they give to the god they serve, he remains the prince of demons

Qur’an Sura 9:111a, “… they fight in the cause of Allah , so they kill and are killed …”

John 8:44a, “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him …”

Hadith, Sahih Muslim 4457, “The Messenger of Allah … used not to kill the children, so thou shouldst not kill them unless … you could distinguish between a child who would grow up to be a believer (and a child who would grow up to be a non-believer), so that you killed the (prospective) non-believer and left the (prospective) believer aside.”

By Frances Martel, Breitbart – “In Kurdish-protected and internationally-organized refugee camps throughout Iraq and Syria, Christians, Yazidis, and Muslim Kurds live a tentative life in which many have lost their entire families and have no sense of when they will be able to return to a life of normalcy.

Speaking to the UK’s Daily Mail, a number of refugees living in various centers across Iraq told stories and shared photos of the family they had either never seen again or watched die before their eyes. ‘My older brother, my father, my mother, my wife and even my two kids were killed. All I have left of them is just one picture on my mobile phone,’ says one man, Tahysn, whose two sons were aged three and four when killed.

A Yazidi grandmother identified as Rezal, who escaped Mount Sinjar, managed to escape the wrath of the Islamic State, but watched children die on the mountain of thirst and heat. ‘When we left Sinjar, the kids suffered a lot… Many men from our village died, many women have been captured. I saw some kids dying because of the heat,’ she said. ‘Daesh [the local name for ISIS based on their Arabic acronym]… even cutir god the throats of the babies,’ she said.

The camps are also full of extremely traumatized children, many orphans. The Daily Mail describes the children as ‘heartbreakingly matter-of-fact’ when describing watching their parents die. One child, a boy wielding a toy gun, told the reporters that his life’s mission now was to defeat ISIS. ‘When I grow up, I will beat the Daesh…I will kill them all,’ he says. ‘I want the Daesh to live through what we suffered because of them.’

The Daily Mail’s latest report, based on refugee camp experiences, is only one facet of the unspeakable tragedy of those standing in the Islamic State’s way as they force their ‘caliphate’ upon the Middle East.” Read more.

“Convert To Islam Or Be Killed”: Before Being Beheaded The Children Told ISIS, “No, We Love Jesus”

11/27/2014 4 comments

When the Qur’an speaks, people young and old from all walks of life … die. These precious little children chose to lay down their lives for the faith of Jesus. How many of us today are willing to do the same? …

Revelation 13:15, “The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”

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

Revelation 20:4, “… And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”

Mark 10:14, "... Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God."

Mark 10:14, “… Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”

Israel, Islam & End Times – “CANON Andrew White recounts the story of Iraqi Christian children who when told by ISIS militants to convert to Islam or be killed, they said ‘No, We Love Yeshua (Jesus).’

Few people understand or have seen the persecution of Christians in the Middle East like Canon Andrew White, who has been in the eye of the storm.

White oversees St. George’s Church in Baghdad. His ministry, The Foundation for the Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East offers comfort and humanitarian supplies to many of the Christians devastated by the march of ISIS throughout Iraq and Syria.

Here’s an excerpt from a recent and revealing interview with the man known as the ‘Vicar of Baghdad.’
