Ben Carson On The Islamic State: “We Have To Destroy Their Caliphate … Before They Destroy Us”

If the Prophet Micah is any indication, the United States could certainly be one of the “seven shepherds” that will be raised up one day to fight against the forces of Antichrist seeking to destroy Israel and all of God’s people. In the end, however, only the Lord Himself will ultimately destroy the Islamic Beast …

Micah 5:5-6a, “And this One shall be peace. When the Assyrian comes into our land, and when he treads in our palaces, then we will raise against him seven shepherds and eight princely men. They shall waste with the sword the land of Assyria …”

Daniel 7:21-22a, “I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came …”

2 Thessalonians 2:8, “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming.”

Habakkuk 3:3, 6, 11-13, “His brightness was like the light; He had rays flashing from His hand, And there His power was hidden… He stood and measured the earth; He looked and startled the nations. And the everlasting mountains were scattered, The perpetual hills bowed… The sun and moon stood still in their habitation; At the light of Your arrows they went, At the shining of Your glittering spear. You marched through the land in indignation; You trampled the nations in anger. You went forth for the salvation of Your people, For salvation with Your Anointed. You struck the head from the house of the wicked, By laying bare from foundation to neck.”

By Jordan Schachtel, Breitbart – “Dr. Ben Carson, a GOP presidential frontrunner and retired neurosurgeon, expressed foreign policy aptitude during Tuesday night’s Republican presidential debate…

‘… We have to look at this on a much more global scale,’ Carson said. ‘We’re talking about global jihadists, and their desire is to destroy us and to destroy our way of life.’

Carson then proposed that America must engage in a war of ideas against the radicals abroad.

‘So we have to be saying, ‘How do we make them look like losers,’ that’s the way they’re able to gather a lot of influence, and I think in order to make them look like losers, we have to destroy their caliphate,’ he stated.

‘And you look for the easiest place to do that, it would be in Iraq. Outside of anbar in Iraq there’s a big energy field. Take that from them, take all of that land from them, we could do that, I believe, fairly easily, I’ve learned from talking to several generals, and you move on from there, but you have to continue to face them, because our goal is not to contain them but to destroy them before they destroy us,’ Carson concluded.” Read more.

    Muslims are ISIS people obeying the Quran being exactly like the violent, cannibalistic, child sacrificing, hiding in wait to kill people Perizzites, Hivites, Hittites, Jebusites, Moabites, Edomites, Philistines, Girgashites, canaanites pre flood people; and people of Jericho that God was displeased with wanting them dead. Muslims are breaking work no ill to your neighbour. Muslims are worshiping Satan rather that the Lord of Glory.

    “Destroying the caliphate” and “taking their oil fields” is short-sighted, and shows Carson’s lack of insight into both foreign affairs and his knowledge of Islam. And it will not happen by destroying ISIS in Iraq. The “Caliphate” has grown beyond the borders of Iraq. There are ISIS supporting groups in all of Asia, Australia, Africa, the USA, even Trinidad/Tobago. If ISIS is wiped out, these groups may disappear into obscurity for a season, but reappear with new loyalty to the next grandstanding terrorist group that impresses them as being successful, and with them, new propaganda and new influence on as yet non-radicalized Muslims.

    Carson says “global jihadists” must be destroyed. That’s better than what most politicians have said. They’re still trying to get elected on the bad Islam/good Islam (think bad cop/good cop) idea that keeps the enemy conveniently distant (bad Islam is over there, good Islam is here already and we should protect their rights!) while earning them talking points that everyone can agree on.

    If Carson knows what he is talking about, then he has perhaps provided a glimpse of what must be done on a global scale, which is to destroy Islam worldwide. But I don’t think that’s where he was going. He’s a 7th Day Adventist, and according to Doug Bachelor, the Adventist go-to guy for eschatology, Islam isn’t the problem. The Roman Catholic Church and a future rogue US government will be the problem on account of an expected conspiracy to force Sunday-worship on all Adventists.

    He seems to think that if we can just make ISIS look like losers, then the battle is over. No, not quite. What needs to be done is to make Muhammad look like a loser, so that Muslims will no longer want to be associated with him.

    Nobody seems to want to identify the elephant in the room. Islam is the problem. Not radicals, not terrorists, not the caliphate, not militants, not rebels… Islam. Islam must be destroyed, or the rest of the civilized, non-Muslim world will be destroyed. We may be in a time, perhaps in the next 100 years, when the non-Muslim world will have to recognize the politically incorrect necessity of religious war, for the sake of civilization to survive at all. Islam must be destroyed. It may require two nuclear warheads over Mecca and Medina, or perhaps the glorious and terrifying return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

        ISIS people behaving like Satan will destroy themselves. Satan will destroy himself. Satan thinks he is powerful through ISIS people, but he is weak. Jesus did not come to destroy. Neither did he destroy. Why do people avoid being like Jesus?

          It is the God-given responsibility of human government to punish evil according to Romans 13:4. We should uphold that biblical standard and pray that evil would be punished. This does not preclude destroying idols, or even an entire religion.

          And don’t forget, Jesus is returning not as a babe in a manger, but as a terrifying Lord in judgement and war. The bible indicates that the nations surrounding and in the vicinity of Jerusalem will be judged and that it will be exceedingly violent.

          We are also told in the bible to hate evil (Pslam 97:10). Islam is absolutely evil, and God hates it. We should too It is Muslims whom we should not hate, but every opportunity we have, to love them enough to share the gospel that can set them free from the bondage of Islam, change them, save them and introduce them to knowing the real Jesus of the bible (not the false jesus of the quran).

            Jesus will be terrifying to those that give terror refusing to work out their own salvation giving fear and trembling to others. His light will be fire to them unlike any fire anyone has ever known or seen. The war that Jesus gives is not a war that men give. Hebrews 12:29 for our ” God is a consuming fire.”
            1 John 1:5 – This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare
            unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
            Exodus 33:20:And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.
            Islam is Romans 1 KJV Cambridge edition bible verse:28:32. They don’t deserve to live having no natural affection. That is having no love. Muslims love with dissimulation. They substitute Great prophet with Lord of glory knowing full well what Thomas said not daring to say the true words that Thomas said. They insist on setting up their laws that originate from Satan’s unseen prison. They know full well that Jesus would condemn Sharia lying saying they are laws that Jesus would keep. Jesus would be more appalled by Islamic law than he was with the laws that the pharisees used trying to condemn him.
