“Get Ready”: US Defense Secretary Says ISIS Caliphate Is “Beyond Anything That We’ve Seen”

The Prophet Daniel himself intimated similar sentiments. And the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, is being forced to acknowledge that ISIS “is an organization that has an apocalyptic, end-of-days strategic vision and which will eventually have to be defeated.” And it will be …

Daniel 7:7, “… a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it …”

FOX News – “Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel issued a dire warning Thursday about the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorist group, saying the organization is ‘beyond anything that we’ve seen.’

Hagel spoke at a press conference in which he addressed the execution of American journalist James Foley, at the hands of terrorists from the group, also known as ISIS or ISIL. The U.S. military continues to launch airstrikes against Islamic State targets in northern Iraq, in support of Iraqi and Kurdish forces, but Hagel suggested more action may be necessary.

‘ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen,’ Hagel said. ‘They’re beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. Oh, this is beyond anything that we’ve seen. So we must prepare for everything.’

He said the only way to do that is take a ‘cold, steely hard look’ and ‘get ready.’

The U.S. has restricted its military action to Iraq, but concerns have increased as the Islamic militant group extends its reach from safe havens in Syria across the Iraqi border.

Speaking alongside Hagel at a Pentagon news conference, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey said that although the Islamic State group can be contained it cannot be defeated without attacking it in Syria.

Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said this would not necessarily require airstrikes by the U.S., although Hagel appeared to leave open that possibility by telling reporters, ‘We’re looking at all options.’

Dempsey, who served multiple tours in Iraq during the 2003-2011 war, was pointed in his comments about what it would take to ultimately defeat the Islamic State group.

‘They can be contained, not in perpetuity,’ Dempsey said. ‘This is an organization that has an apocalyptic, end-of-days strategic vision and which will eventually have to be defeated.'” Read more.

Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “… the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate — minces no words in its declaration that ‘Christianity should be destroyed and wiped from the face of the earth … Islamic Power has returned upon the face of the earth and the Revived Global Caliphate has set eyes on the West to once and for all rid the world of Christianity and there is nothing you can do about it’ [7]. But there is One who can, and who will, do something about it … The ‘Four Horsemen’ have arisen and are now all riding together as one upon the earth. But what follows next will be a completely new pedigree of horse and class of Rider unlike any of the others before it, one that will see to it that the dominion of this Beast be ‘taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever’ (Daniel 7:26), which now brings me to the 6th Parallel, broken down into individual parts …” Read more.

    Hagel says to “get ready”, but under Obama’s administration, there will be more scandals and golfing than readiness.

    How can ISIS say they work for God? God gives us good things even on a planet fallen into sin. Berries, blue berries, strawberries, apples, peaches watermelon. The list goes on and on. They are all good gifts from God and including the things harvested from a garden. The air we breathe is a good gift from God. God does not command people to kill like ISIS has and wants to kill. God having that mentality would have no power to create life.

      The followers of the satanic false ‘moon-god’ and his lying demonic prophet Mohammed are working for their ‘god’ – who is Satan:

      3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
      4 In whom the god of this world
      hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
      (2 Cor 4:3-4 – KJV)

      CHRISTians need to remember and do what “the LORD GOD” tells us:

      6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
      7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

      8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

      9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
      (1 Peter 5:6-9 – KJV)

        Islam is what real satanism is. Muslims are real blasphemers saying God’s word is in their green covered book. Muslims are real wizards and witches. They think their mosques have magical powers. They say they are not into magic lying. Muslims if they do not change will be ashes under the feet of the righteous. God’s light will burn them up. Look this bible up.
