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

11/05/2011 24 comments

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.

Islamic Militants Calling Themselves ‘The Unknown Soldiers of The Hidden Imam’ Threaten to Hunt Down and Execute Christians Who Flee Iran – “Islamic militants with suspected ties to Iranian security forces have been terrorizing evangelical Christians with threats to ‘repent’ or die, it was reported Sunday. Christian Solidarity Worldwide has reported that 11 Iranian Christians who fled Iran in the wake of a government campaign against Christianity have received threats via email to ‘repent’ or face extrajudicial execution, from a group identifying itself as the ‘The Unknown Soldiers of The Hidden Imam.’ The threatening emails that were sent to each individual on Sept. 14 aspired to extend the arm of Iranian Islamic militancy beyond the borders of Iran by implying that, although the recipients have left Iran, they have not escaped the ‘acute eyes of the unknown soldiers.’” Read more.

Mississippi: Muslim Man Threatens To Kill All Non-Muslims At Local Hospital

09/01/2015 Leave a comment

Proverbs 12:20, “Deceit is in the hearts of those who plot evil …”

Deadly heart issues continue to plague the Islamic world. According to Allah and his co-equal partner, however, the best way to heal a Muslim’s beating heart is by stopping the infidel’s …

Qur’an Sura 9:14, “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and assist you against them and heal the hearts of a believing people.”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘The Iranian was then sent to the hospital, and at the hospital he’s still threatening to kill anyone who isn’t a member of Islam or Muslim.’ This was after he assaulted two sheriff’s deputies and threatened to set off a bomb while ‘praying to Allah.’

Note how defensive Hancock County Sheriff Ricky Adam is: ‘When we have somebody that’s making these threats, we know he’s Iranian, we know he’s a Muslim, and regardless what anybody says, dammit, they’ve killed people. So we have to take it seriously and we are.’ Clearly, Adam is already anticipating charges of ‘Islamophobia’ resulting from his daring to arrest a Muslim making terrorist threats: ‘regardless of what anybody says,’ he says, they have to ‘take it seriously’ — in other words, they can’t back down for fear of charges of ‘racism’ and ‘bigotry’ that he obviously knows will be coming, because they always do.

Meanwhile, Safa Alidoust does appear to be legitimately mentally ill. All too often authorities ascribe jihad activity as mental illness in order to cover up that it’s really jihad activity, but this business about praying in the nude does make it seem as if Alidoust has really gone round the bend. No sect of Islam requires nudity for prayer. Unfortunately, his mental illness does seem to have an aggressive, belligerent aspect that does have a heavy Islamic character.

More on this story. ‘Iranian national accused of assaulting Hancock County deputies,’ by Al Showers, WLOX, August 31, 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) – An Iranian national arrested in Hancock County Sunday for allegedly making terrorist threats and assaulting two sheriff’s deputies will have a bond hearing Tuesday.

Authorities say they were forced to shut down a portion of I-10 near the Mississippi-Louisiana state line for more than two hours after Safa Alidoust, 32, threatened to set off explosive devices he claimed were in his car. Sheriff’s officials say it’s a bizarre case.

“Got a call of a naked man on I-10, dispatchers dispatch a deputy out there. When he got there, the guy was naked. So he approaches him, he was talking to him, as they were talking he and the suspect get into a wrestling match,” said Hancock County Sheriff Ricky Adam.

The car Sheriff Adam said the suspect was driving was impounded behind the Sheriff’s Department and it had what is believed to be the suspect’s clothes on the floor board and passenger seat. The sheriff said while the interstate scuffle was going on, a second officer was sent to the scene.

Adam said the deputies, “Finally subdue him after about 10 or 15 minutes of fighting with him. Which in turn injured one of our officers.”

Adam said the scene became more intense after the suspect began making threats praying to Allah and saying he’s got a bomb and he’s going to blow everybody up. That’s when the sheriff says the Biloxi Bomb Squad was called.

“They x-rayed a couple of packages that were in the vehicle,” explained Sheriff Adam.

Fortunately no bomb was found in the car . But a background check on the suspect determined Alidoust is an Iranian national living in Lafayette, Louisiana on a work visa.

“And works for an oil company over there, a petroleum company., [sic] The Iranian was then sent to the hospital, and at the hospital he’s still threatening to kill anyone who isn’t a member of Islam or Muslim. When we have somebody that’s making these threats, we know he’s Iranian, we know he’s a Muslim, and regardless what anybody says, dammit, they’ve killed people. So we have to take it seriously and we are,” explained Adam.

The Sheriff said the suspect told his deputies he was nude because he is required to pray that way.

Adam said, “If that’s what they believe I can care less. They can do it. just [sic] don’t do it on the interstate.”…

Islamic State Burns Chained Iraqi Shiite Fighters Alive

08/31/2015 Leave a comment

For peaceful purposes. After all, these pious pyromaniacs of the “prophet” are simply following “the footsteps of Allah’s Messenger … in his harshness towards the disbelievers” …

Qur’an Sura 48:29, “Mohammed is [Allah’s] apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless …”

Qur’an Sura 24:2, “Let not compassion move you from carrying out [Allah’s] law …”

"[T]he wicked will not inhabit the earth" (Proverbs 10:30). A day of reckoning is coming.

“[T]he wicked will not inhabit the earth” (Proverbs 10:30). A day of reckoning is coming.

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “Many will say that this is additional proof of the claim that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. This is because of this hadith: ‘Narrated ‘Ikrima: Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to ‘Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn ‘Abbas who said, ‘If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah’s Apostle forbade it, saying, ‘Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment (fire).’ I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.” (Bukhari 9.84.57)

But as is so often the case with hadith, there is also a contradictory one — supporting the view that these sayings were fabricated by competing factions among Muslims, and have no historical value. Muhammad is depicted as saying that those who don’t answer the call to prayer should be set on fire, along with their houses: ‘Certainly I decided to order the Mu’adh-dhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqama and order a man to lead the prayer and then take a fire flame to burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer along with their houses.’ (Bukhari 1.11.626)

Then there is this gruesome story from Muhammad’s conquest of Khaybar: ‘Kinana b. al-Rabi`, who had the custody of the treasure of B. al-Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came (T. was brought) to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle said to Kinana, ‘Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?’ he said Yes. The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders to al-Zubayr b. al-Awwam, ‘Torture him until you extract what he has,’ so he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head, in revenge for his brother Mahmud.’ (Ibn Ishaq 515).

Islamic apologists never, ever explain the data that contradicts their positions. They just ignore it. That is what distinguishes them as deceivers rather than reformers.

‘IS burns four Iraqi Shiite fighters alive,’ AFP, August 31, 2015:

The Islamic State group strung up four Iraqi Shiite fighters with chains and burned them alive, according to footage posted online, the latest gruesome execution video from the jihadists.

The victims — identified as fighters in the pro-government Popular Mobilisation forces from southern Iraq — were suspended from a swingset by chains attached to their hands and feet, then set on fire.

IS, which overran large parts of Iraq last year and still controls much of the country’s west, said the murders were in revenge for the alleged burning of four men by pro-government forces.

“Now retribution has come, for today, we will attack them as they attacked us, and punish them as they punished us,” a masked militant says in the video, which was not dated and did not say where the burnings took place.

The video included a clip said to show a Sunni man suspended over a fire while still alive as pro-government forces look on, and another of famous Shiite fighter Abu Azrael (“Father of the Angel of Death”) slicing a piece of flesh off a burned corpse with a sword….

Murmurs Of War: ISIS Militants Moving In On The Heart Of Damascus

08/31/2015 Leave a comment

While the world groans and labors with birth pains Syria is now beginning to feel significant chest pains. If ISIS militants were to overtake Damascus this would certainly spur a soon-to-be-nuclear Iran to get involved militarily. For both the Islamic State and the Islamic Republic, however, a fight for the heart of Damascus will unfortunately result in a myocardial infarction that no defibrillator can fix …

Daniel 8:4, 17, 20, “I saw the ram pushing westward, northward, and southward, so that no animal could withstand him; nor was there any that could deliver from his hand, but he did according to his will and became great… ‘Understand, son of man, that the vision refers to the time of the end… The ram which you saw, having the two horns — they are the kings of Media and Persia.”

Isaiah 17:1, “The burden against Damascus. ‘Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.’

AFP – “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) battled Syrian rebel forces in a Damascus neighbourhood on Monday, bringing the extremists closer than ever to the centre of the capital, a monitoring group said.

Isil militants fought street battles against Islamist rebels in Asali, part of the capital’s southern Qadam district, after seizing two streets there over the weekend, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

‘This is the closest Isil has ever been to the heart of Damascus,’ Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said.

He said Isil had advanced from the adjacent Al-Hajar Al-Aswad neighbourhood, where they have been based since July 2014.

A Syrian military official confirmed the clashes and said he was ‘very happy that they are fighting’.

‘But we are ready to react if they try to advance into government-held territory,’ the official told AFP.

According to the Observatory, opposition-held Qadam has been relatively quiet since a truce between rebel groups and regime forces there a year ago.

It said fighting in the district on Sunday left 15 fighters dead, but it could not specify how many were from Isil and how many were Islamist rebels.

Mr Rahman said the ‘fierce street battles’ had forced civilians to flee the area.

Since its expulsion from the Eastern Ghouta suburb of Damascus last year, Isil has used Al-Hajar Al-Aswad as a base for attacks on the capital.

From there, it tried to seize the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp in April, but was pushed back.

That same month, Isil kidnapped two opposition fighters from Qadam and beheaded them in Al-Hajar Al-Aswad.

Rotten: The Fruit Of Islam In The 21st Century

Rotten: Such Is The Fruit Of Islam In The 21st Century

By Henry Samuel and David Chazan, The Telegraph – “French security forces are bracing for the eventuality of civil unrest and fear there could be a missile strike on a passenger airliner or a September 11-style attack, according to sources close to French intelligence.

‘Airlines have been warned of a possible attack on a plane with an anti-tank missile,’ a source told The Telegraph. ‘But pilots are unsure how to take evasive action.’

After Friday’s thwarted attempt to massacre passengers on an Amsterdam-Paris train and a series of terrorist attacks and attempted killings in France this year, President François Hollande warned the nation to prepare for more violence, considered inevitable as the Islamist threat grows.

The army has made contingency plans for the ‘reappropriation of national territory’, meaning to win back control of neighbourhoods where the population become hostile to the security forces and where guns are easily obtainable, according to the source.

‘There are a lot of alienated and angry fourth-generation immigrant kids in the suburbs and the prospect of radicalisation is increasingly likely,’ the source said.

‘The idea that attacks like the one on the train are carried out by individuals acting on their own is not credible. We’re dealing with highly-organised networks of militant Islamists embarked on a campaign of violence and determined to intensify it.’

Kalashnikov automatic rifles — used by the train gunman and Islamist terrorists who killed 17 people in Paris in January — and anti-tank missiles are now obtainable in France. Many were smuggled in from the former Yugoslavia after the Balkan wars in the 1990s. More weapons have come in from Libya, the sources said, adding that organised crime and terrorist groups were working together to procure them.

‘We don’t know what happened to the arms we (France) to Libyan rebels. It’s worrying,’ the source said.” Read more.

Report: Group Of Muslims Brutally Kill Christian Man In Portland ME, Blood-Splattered Bible Found Near Body

08/27/2015 Leave a comment

The authorities seem to be mum on details, but when a group of Muslim men savagely beat a non-Muslim to death in such a manner, those motives are often “peaceful” …

Qur’an Sura 33:57, 61, “Lo! those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah hath cursed them in this world and the Hereafter, and hath prepared for them the doom of the disdained … Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.”

By Leo Hohmann, WND – “A judge on Monday unsealed the court documents of a grisly murder of a Christian man, allegedly at the hands of three Muslim immigrants in Portland, Maine.

In those documents, which had been sealed since the three men were charged Aug. 11, police said they found the brutally beaten body of Freddy Akoa lying on the living-room floor in his apartment. He was the victim of a savage attack that took place over several hours.

According to the autopsy report, he had cuts and bruises all over his body, with the fatal blows coming to his head.

Akoa, who had listed himself as a health-care professional on his LinkedIn page, had 22 rib fractures and a lacerated liver.

Akoa’s blood-splattered Bible was found lying next to his head.

The apartment was in disarray, with empty beer cans and trash strewn about, as though a party had come to an abrupt end at the onset of a physical altercation.

Akoa, 49, apparently knew his assailants, but police have not commented on the nature of their relationship.

He had been beaten and kicked in the head, and bashed in the head with a piece of furniture in an assault that continued relentlessly for hours, police said in the arrest affidavit.

But they were silent on what touched off the vicious attack.

Could they have been drinking and then gotten into an argument over religion? Police wouldn’t say if the Bible was found open or closed, but its presence so close to the body leaves one to wonder.

A local detective refused to fill in any of the many blank holes in the story of Freddy Akoa’s death.” Read more.

Each independently showed that upwards of 80% of mosques in America were preaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity ultimately to impose Islamic rule. And now comes yet more confirmation that mosques in the U.S. are teaching these things, and again the percentage is remarkably similar: around 80% of mosques are found to be teaching jihad warfare and Islamic supremacism.” Read more.

Muslim Cleric Issuing Fatwa Permitting The Use Of WMD Pledges Allegiance To The Islamic State

08/26/2015 1 comment

Qur’an Sura 8:59-60, “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 …”

Weapons of mass destruction. They’re halal after all. Unfortunately for the Islamic world, it doesn’t end well for them …

Zechariah 14:12, “And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘I advise you to join, all of you, the Islamic State and to pledge allegiance to its leader, Amir al-Mumineen Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – may Allah protect him – and fight under his banner. It is the state that raised the banner of Islam, and established Tawhid, and destroyed the idols, and implemented the Sharia. Allah has purified it from implementing man-made laws, from standing with the Disbelievers, and from supporting the Tawaghit, and has protected it from innovations, and misleading paths.’

How did this cleric become such a Misunderstander of Islam? Maybe John Kerry or David Cameron could jet over to Saudi Arabia and explain the true, peaceful Islam to him.

‘Saudi Cleric Who Issued Fatwa on WMD Permissibility Pledges Allegiance to ISIS,’ by Bridget Johnson, PJ Media, August 25, 2015:

A prominent Saudi cleric and ally of Osama bin Laden who issued a 2003 fatwa permitting the use of weapons of mass destruction in jihad has pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State.

Nasser bin Hamad al-Fahd is behind bars in Saudi Arabia, but his direction for squabbling Muslim factions to unite behind Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as caliph could have significant reach — along with the fresh distribution of his fatwas on social media networks.

“I advise you to join, all of you, the Islamic State and to pledge allegiance to its leader, Amir al-Mumineen Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – may Allah protect him – and fight under his banner,” al-Fahd wrote. “It is the state that raised the banner of Islam, and established Tawhid, and destroyed the idols, and implemented the Sharia. Allah has purified it from implementing man-made laws, from standing with the Disbelievers, and from supporting the Tawaghit, and has protected it from innovations, and misleading paths.”

He acknowledged that ISIS has made mistakes, but they should be forgiven since they’re under such pressure all the time.

“As to those who keep counting its mistakes, we say: Nobody is exempt from mistakes, and whatever the time in history, and however pure you might be. All sons of Adam make mistakes, and exemption from mistakes is only for the Prophets,” al-Fahd wrote.

“…What could we say about this blessed State? It has just emerged, still lacking capabilities, besieged, attacked from every side, arrows pointing to it from all around, its been defamed, slandered by all imaginable means, nations from all over the world agreed to fight it, and the scholars of the Tawaghit, the scholars of shame, the callers to falsehood, the mules of the sultans in every country have defamed and slandered it, and lied about it lies we have never seen in history. So how could they not make mistakes when they are in this situation?”

Some al-Nusra supporters online were claiming that the signature on the letter was forged, sparking a back-and-forth on Twitter between ISIS and al-Nusra/al-Qaeda supporters.

But needless to say, ISIS backers celebrated the news — and trumpeted his old fatwas for jihadis to catch up on.

In his 2003 WMD fatwa, al-Fahd ruled, “If the infidels can be repelled from the Muslims only by using such weapons, their use is permissible, even if you kill them without exception and destroy their tillage and stock.”

The international banning of certain types of weapons, he stressed, has no meaning under Islamic law. Under the Quran, he said, “One kills in a good manner only when one can. If those engaged in jihad cannot do so, for example when they are forced to bomb, destroy, burn, or flood, it is permissible.”…
