The Christian Era In The Middle East Is Over, ‘Will Be Completely Green, The Colour Of Islam’


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 thērion [brutal, savage men] of the earth.”

In Revelation 6:8 John describes the “fourth horseman of the Apocalypse” as being “chlōros, literally translated as “green”. Green is the official color of Islam and is believed to have been Mohammed’s favoriteThe “fourth horseman” is described as having power over the fourth part of the earth. I don’t believe that it is a mere coincidence that Islam today has dominion over a fourth part of the earth. John describes the “fourth horseman” as having the power to “kill with sword.” Islam is spread through Jihad, the “Sword of Islam.”  The “fourth horseman” also kills with hunger/famine. Spiritual destitution aside, Islamists would even prefer to see children starve to death than have them receive life-saving aid from the “Christian West.” The “fourth horseman” kills with “death”, and the love of death in suicide and martyrdom operations against men, women and children for the cause of “Allah” permeates Islamic culture, so much that they openly declare to “love death more than you love life.” Lastly, the “fourth horseman” is described as killing with “the beasts of the earth.” The Greek word “thērion” here is, I believe, being used metaphorically to refer to “savage”, “brutal” and “bestial” men, a perfect description of what we see today in the radical world of Islam’s death seekers

By Giulio Meotti – “Ramallah was 90% Christian before the 1948 War of Independence and Bethlehem was 80% Christian. Today Ramallah is a large Islamic city and Bethlehem’s Christians are near extinction. Arab Christianity joined evil forces to buy temporary security.

Israel has become the only safe haven for Christians in the Middle East, Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, wrote in a recent op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal.

‘As 800,000 Jews were once expelled from Arab countries, so are Christians being forced from lands they’ve inhabited for centuries’, Ambassador Oren stated, comparing the expulsion of Jews after the establishment of the state of Israel with the Arab countries’ current treatment of their Christian minorities.

The numbers are telling. Today there is only one Middle Eastern country where the number of Christians has grown: Israel. As documented in the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics, the Christian community that numbered 34,000 people in 1949 is now 163,000-strong, and will reach 187,000 in 2020.

In the rest of the Middle East, the drive for Islamic purity is going to banish all traces of pre-Islamic pasts. When the Islamists will have prevailed, the Middle East will be completely green, the colour of Islam.” Read more.

Flashback: ‘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… The conspiracy of silence surrounding this violent expression of religious intolerance has to stop. Nothing less than the fate of Christianity—and ultimately of all religious minorities—in the Islamic world is at stake.” Read more.

    Thank you. Before I knew the translation for pale, the Holy Spirit guided me to understand this. This is not the first time I have seen this recently. Do we need anymore signs? I think not. And yes Europe is already deep into this. Come quickly Lord Jesus.

    If thousands upon thousands of Islamic people in the Middle East were not coming to Y’shua, I would agree completely with these words, but in fact imams, sheiks and whole mosques are repenting and coming to the Lord. I do, however, think that Islam as the fourth horse being green makes a lot of sense. Death seems to be what many of them stand for, although that alone is turning off many Muslims and is making them rethink their beliefs.

    Jim Vollmer, “If thousands upon thousands of Islamic people in the Middle East were not coming to Y’shua, I would agree completely with these words, but in fact imams, sheiks and whole mosques are repenting and coming to the Lord.”

    Though there are good reports of such conversions happening, let us not forget: Muslims who are turning to Christ are now facing certain persecution, imprisonment and even death as a result. Many who are alive and remain are also being driven from their homes, from their communities, and are being forced to emigrate to other countries or go underground. Here are a few examples. This is just the tip of the iceberg:

    * Uganda’s 12% Muslim Minority is Increasingly ‘Radicalizing’, Converts to Christianity Coming Under Attack
    * Iran: Ten Converts to Christianity Arrested in House Church After Gathering for Prayer
    * Bangladesh: Former Imam Nearly Beaten to Death For Converting to Christianity
    * Iran’s Final Verdict: Allah’s Law Has Spoken, Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani Should Be Killed for Rejecting Islam
    * Somalia: Muslim Extremists from Al Shabaab Behead Another Christian for Leaving Islam
    * Iran: Christian Convert Receives 3-Year Prison Sentence in Kermanshah
    * India: Police Detain, Beat Converts from Islam to Christianity in Muslim-Majority Kashmir Valley
    * Somalia: Christian Aid Workers Beheaded for Converting from Islam
    * Islamists Again Behead Another for Leaving Islam and Converting to Christianity
    * Norway: Christian Convert Tortured with Boiling Water: ‘Return to Islam or We Kill You’
    * Fearing ‘The Growth of Christianity Like Never Before’ Iranian Authorities Escalate Crackdown on Christians in Ahwaz, Shiraz, Esfahan and Kermanshah
    * Cameroon: Militant Muslims Warn Christian Converts to Return to Islam or ‘Face Allah’s Wrath’
    * Turkey: Ex-Muslim Boy Clings to Christian Faith Despite Beatings for Not Reciting Muslim Prayer
    * Sweden: Two Iranian Converts from Islam to Christianity Attacked and Stabbed by Muslims
    * Islamic Militants Calling Themselves ‘The Unknown Soldiers of The Hidden Imam’ Threaten to Hunt Down and Execute Christians Who Flee Iran
    * Iran: Christian Convert from Islam Sentenced to Six Years in Prison for Having ‘Baptism Performed in Turkey’
    * Afghan Christians in Danger at Home and Abroad, ‘Whoever Changes His [Muslim] Religion Should Be Executed’
    * Sweden: Imam Calls to Kill Converts on Radio Sweden, ‘It is the Duty of Every Muslim to Kill Those Who Leave Islam’
    * Not a Single Christian Church Left in Afghanistan, Says State Department

    I agree that those who convert are under the gun, however, we know the irony that persecution seems to bring an increase in numbers. There are many instances of this happening

    Understand, I am not arguing. Sometimes there are shade of gray to consider. I know that Muslims turning to Y’shua face terrible dangers. For that reason, many go through the motions in Islam and hide their new faith in their hearts, being careful not to share with just anyone. We living in the west may soon know the dangers they face first hand.

    Thank you for your enlightening articles.
