David Wood On Why Muslims Pray To Mohammed (Video)

10/17/2016 9 comments

One of the reasons why Islam despises Christianity is because one of the foundational pillars upon which Christianity stands firm acknowledges the Divine nature of Jesus Christ. According to Islam, however, to believe that Jesus is Divine (or, in their words, to believe that Jesus is a co-equal partner with God) is an unpardonable sin called “shirk” that “Allah” will never forgive. Nonetheless, even though Muslims would never teach that Mohammed is “Allah” in the flesh, they associate and equate the “prophet” of Islam with “Allah” himself repeatedly every day. Islam teaches that “Allah” has no partners on one hand, but contradicts itself by teaching that one cannot become a Muslim unless they acknowledge that “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger” per the Shahada on the other. In Islam, a Muslim’s “salvation” is therefore determined by their obedience and devotion to Mohammed, effectively elevating the “prophet” of Islam to the same co-equal status of Islam’s own deity. To acknowledge that there is no god but “Allah” is insufficient. You must acknowledge the “perfect man” Mohammed as well. This, of course, begs the question: Since Mohammed is co-equal with “Allah,” what does Mohammed’s “I-have-been-made-victorious-with-terror” moral character reveal about the nature of “Allah”? …

Revelation 13:18, “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate [psēphizō – ‘reckon’] the number [arithmos – ‘multitude’ of peopleof the beast, for it is the number [arithmos – ‘multitude’ of people] of a man [the false prophet Mohammed]. That number is [χξς – ‘In The Name of Allah’ in Arabic].”

Hadith Bukhari 2996, “… Know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Messenger [Mohammed]…’”

Qur’an Sura 3:31, “… If you should love Allah, then follow me [Mohammed], so Allah will love you and forgive you your sins …”

Qur’an Sura 48:10, “Indeed, those who pledge allegiance to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually pledging allegiance to Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 4:80, “He who obeys the Messenger [Mohammed] has obeyed Allah …”

David Wood: “… Muslims speak directly to Mohammed during their prayers. They therefore assume that Mohammed can hear them because it only makes sense to speak directly to Mohammed if he can hear what they’re saying. But if Muslims around the world —  over and over again, day after day — talk to Mohammed during their prayers, what attribute would Mohammed need to have in order to hear them? Omnipresence. And that’s a divine attribute …” Watch the video below.

Why will the Islamic Beast one day turn against and destroy the “Whore of Babylon” that rides it? Listen to Mohammed’s teachings in the video below by David Wood to find out …

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 beasts [thērion – savage, brutal, bestial menof the earth…”

Revelation 13:18, “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate [psēphizō – “reckon”] the number [arithmos – “multitude” of peopleof the beast, for it is the number of a man [the false prophet Mohammed]. That number is [χξς – ‘In The Name of Allah’ in Arabic].”

Revelation 17:1, 16, “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, ‘Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication’ … the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.”

Isaiah 21:1-2, “An oracle concerning the Desert by the Sea: Like whirlwinds sweeping through the southland, an invader comes from the desert, from a land of terror. A dire vision has been shown to me: The traitor betrays, the looter takes loot. Elam, attack! Media, lay siege! I will bring to an end all the groaning she caused.”

Revelation 17:1b-2, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”

For decades we have been suffering the aftermath of insensible, politically-correct “leadership.” It is worth repeating that the Book of Revelation foresaw Islam and its effect upon the earth (click the links to understand why). In Revelation 17:1-2 we read about how the “kings of the earth committed fornication” with the “great harlot” of Babylon — the false religion of Saudi Arabia. As a result, the inhabitants of the earth were then “made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” For the past 1,400 years, history tells us that the fruit of Islam — it’s “wine” as it were — has yielded little more than destruction, desecration and death. Whether we call our leaders today Kings or Queens, Presidents or Prime Ministers, they have allowed and often encouraged millions of Muslims to immigrate to Western countries and live amongst non-Muslims in societies that were founded upon “offensive” non-Islamic values, and continue to do so today. And the repercussions are undeniable. As the Muslim population in non-Muslim nations continues to increase, we are now being forced to suffer the inevitable fall-out of myopic Western leadership that continues to jump in bed with and appease, instead of oppose, the very religion whose primary focus is to ensure that either we eternally submit to it, or be permanently silenced for refusing. Yes, the “Religion of Peace” will one day come to a not-so-peaceful end when the “Whore of Babylon” is herself forced to “drink of the wine of the wrath of God” (Revelation 14:10), but until that Day comes, the inhabitants of the earth must drink from the harlot’s bitter cup “the wine of the wrath of her fornication” (Revelation 18:3) …

Revelation 9:21, “And they did not repent of their murders …

Fellowship With Darkness: Swedish Church To Collect Funds To Build Mosque

02/04/2016 1 comment

1 Timothy 4:1, 4, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons … And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

2 Corinthians 6:14b-15a, “… For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial?”

1 Kings 11:5 tells us that King Solomon “did evil in the eyes of the Lord” when he built a temple to a false and detestable god, yet here we are nearly 3,000 years later with “churches” somehow under the impression that the span of time has now made this acceptable in the eyes of a God who never changes (Isaiah 40:8, Hebrews 13:8). Are they ignorant of Scripture? Are they choosing to willfully ignore it? Either way, it leads to destruction. As Ambassadors for Christ we must minister to those in darkness, never fellowship with it nor assist others with the worship of false gods, let alone one as blood-thirsty and hell-bent on the destruction of Christianity as Islam’s “Allah.” Instead of advancing the idolatry of Mohammed we must advance the Truth of Christ. I’ll repeat what I wrote here in a December story about a DC demonstrator professing to be a Christian while claiming to love the Qur’an.

Revelation 18:4-5, “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.’”

Someone asked me not too long ago that if the “Whore of Babylon” in Revelation 17 and 18 represented Mecca, the birthplace and spiritual homestead of Islam, then how could God call upon His people to “come out of her” given the fact that non-Muslims have never been allowed to even step foot in Islam’s “holiest” city?  The answer to this question is actually quite simple when we realize the language and intent of the text is not suggesting that some of God’s people are physically in Mecca, but another way all together. Notice the relationship between the “kings of the earth” and the adulterous Babylonian “harlot”:

Revelation 17:1-2, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”

The Book of Revelation is redolent with Old Testament language. If we look at the Hebrew word for “fornication” we realize that it was often used figuratively in the context of idolatry and being unfaithful to God. We see the same thing in Revelation 2:14 and 2:20 where “fornication” being committed by God’s people is in direct reference to a false religion. In Revelation 17:2, the relationship between the “kings of the earth” and the “harlot” is likewise depicted in sexually graphic terms where the “kings of the earth” are committing spiritual intercourse or “fornication” with a false Babylonian religion. Today, we see Western nations — from leaders of traditionally Christian countries who claim to be Christian yet who are all too willing to visit mosques and even offer prayers to Allah in the vein of inclusivity — bending over backwards for the “Religion of Peace” at every turn and even punishing those daring to criticize it. Sadly, one unfortunate side-effect of such “political correctness” is the fact that we are now also seeing a number of Christian churches openly embracing certain aspects of Islam and its blasphemous teachings far too often, with some of them even going so far as to hold readings of the Qur’an or distributing Qur’ans for public consumption in an effort to somehow show that as a Christian church they love all people and don’t “discriminate” in any way, shape or form. Loving all people is one thing, but embracing the religion of all people is another, especially one whose primary goal is the destruction of the elect of God:

This is happening far too often. Whether it’s on an individual Christian level or Christians sitting in churches and calling it Ecuminism or Chrislam or Interfaith or anything else, we all need to be standing up and calling it WRONG. If we’re to be a “holy nation” as 1 Peter 2:9 calls believers in Christ, we must set ourselves apart from such religious filth and “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them” (Ephesians 5:11). In these last days, it is therefore no surprise that as soon as we are given a depiction of explicit spiritual “fornication” in Revelation 18:3 we then read the following warning in the very next verse:

Revelation 18:4,Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.”

Jesus gave a similar warning to the church in Thyatira for tolerating “that woman” who was “teaching and seducing My servants to practice sexual immorality … Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation” (Revelation 2:18-22).

The Word of God tells us that “in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons” (1 Timothy 4:1), but those of us who overcome are being clothed in white garments (Revelation 3:5). No matter what comes our way, may we all make sure to keep them on (Revelation 16:15) …

Ephesians 5:11, “… have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness …”

WebDesk, Christians in Pakistan – “The Swedish church in Naka has been planning to raise funds to build a mosque adjacent to the church building in Fisksätra, Stokholm, for years.

The joint building is to be called the ‘House of God’ and is estimated to cost SEK 39 million ($4,548,630), an amount the church tries to collect through a foundation.

Priest and former bishop of Karlstad, Bengt Wadensjö, presented the project in an article in a Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. Referring to the Swedish democrats, he wrote ‘When fear of the unknown in the form of Islam now gives Sweden a profile in the news by SD taking place in parliament, I want to highlight a different picture of Sweden.’

Contradicting Jimmie Åkesson, head of SD’s statement that Muslims were the biggest foreign threat, he wrote, ‘In Nacka we do not believe that immigrants or Muslims would be a threat. They are an asset.’

Bengt Wadensjö said that Muslims and Christians should unite in the idea that God is one, and added that ‘Muslims are generally peaceful and honest’, and that the project would lead to that ‘world peace begins in Fisksätra’.

Presently, the idea is to build the mosque adjacent to the church, a glazed foyer joining the two.

In November 2014, Nacka Parish decided to transfer bequeathed funds to the collection fund to build the mosque, ie money from deceased who wanted to support the Swedish Church by donating money. Although this decision was appealed, the protest was rejected.” Source – CIP.

Non-Muslims are forbidden from Islam’s “holy” city of Mecca

Jesus is not the Son of God: ‘O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not ‘Three’ – Cease! (it is) better for you! – Allah is only One Allah. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as Defender.’ — Qur’an 4:171

And: ‘It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.’ — Qur’an 19:35

Jesus was not crucified: ‘And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.’ — Qur’an 4:157

Rearing Its Ugly Head: Terrifying Graphic Shows Global Spread Of ISIS In Just 2 Years As Terrorists Around The World Swear Allegiance

12/08/2015 Leave a comment

Revelation 13:2b-4, And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority. One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast. And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?’

Many in the Church today have been taught that most of Revelation is yet to happen in the future, but the fact of the matter is that much of what Revelation describes has already taken place and is in the process of taking place today. Although the Islamic world had been in a relative “cocoon-like” state for much of the 20th century since the Islamic Caliphate received its mortal “head wound” in 1924, a new phase in its metamorphosis is being quickly revealed as it heals. What is emerging, however, is far from beautiful …

Qur’an Sura 3:160, “If Allah helps you, none can overcome you …”

Qur’an Sura 4:141, “… never will Allah give the disbelievers over the believers a way to overcome them.”

By Corey Charlton, Daily Mail – “The full scale of Islamic State’s influence can today be laid bare as it’s revealed dozens of terror groups worldwide have pledged their allegiance to the barbaric extremists.

From militia lurking in the jungles of the Philippines to sleeper cells training in the deserts of Libya, a vast array of groups are now claiming to be operating alongside the jihadis’ notorious black and white banner.

It is clear the groups have little in common except their desire to establish their own kingdoms governed by a traditional interpretation of Sharia law. But they are united by one other common principle – they will do anything to realise their goals.

Among the atrocities to be attributed to these groups is the use of child soldiers, suicide bombings, gangland-style warfare, kidnappings and extortion.

Frighteningly, the vast majority of them have pledged their allegiance to ISIS either this year or in 2014, suggesting the group is enjoying a rapid growth of influence.

In total, a staggering 42 international groups are believed to have offered support or pledged affiliation to ISIS and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, according to the Global Terrorism Index, published last month by the Institute for Economics and Peace.

Some, such as Saudi Arabia’s Supporters of the Islamic State in the Land of the Two Holy Mosques, may be little more than rag-tag groupings of people inspired by the ISIS banner.

But others, such as Nigeria’s Boko Haram or the Philippines’ Abu Sayyaf, have been operating independently for many years and are among multiple well-established groups to swear loyalty to the organisation.

The degree to which these groups are linked to ISIS also varies – some have made only an offer of support or symbolic association. Others are thought to have sent fighters to the Middle East, or are groups established by ISIS that essentially operate as sleeper cells.

Dr Christina Schori Liang, a senior fellow at the Geneva Centre for Security Policy, told MailOnline ISIS had simply fostered a brand which was so effective other terror groups wanted to be associated with it.” Read more.

Hadith, Muslim 1844, 1851, “Whoever gives his oath of allegiance to a leader and gives him his hand and his heart, let him obey him as much as he can … Whoever dies and did not make an oath of allegiance (to the Muslim leader) has died a death of jaahiliyyah [like an ignorant non-Muslim in pre-Islamic times]” – The “Prophet” Mohammed

Recommended: How Revelation’s Predictive Biblical Prophecy Foresaw The Beast Of Islam – “John witnessed those worshiping the Beast asking, ‘Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?’ (13:4). In addition to being guilty of murder, idolatry, sexual immorality and thievery, all who worship the Beast would also present themselves as a powerful, resolute, unbeatable force. It is the reason for which they remain unrepentant. Islamists all around the world are conditioned by Mohammed’s teachings to view their cause as one that is unassailable, a view that is only reinforced with the rise of the ISIS Caliphate, the newest and most powerful terror entity in the history of the world (formerly Al Qaeda in Iraq, or AQI). Members and supporters of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria self-identify as Mohammed’s most loyal followers who adhere to Islamic teachings as proscribed by their prophet. They ‘truly believe that they are invincible and that if they practice what they believe to be true Islam, Allah will bless them and use them to conquer the Earth to bring all people to their form of Islam under their brand of Sharia’ (Stratfor, The Islamic State’s Use of Extreme Violence by Scott Stewart).” Read more.

“The Forbidden Chapter” Of The Hebrew Bible

Tip of the hat to Joel Richardson for the link. “There’s a chapter in [the Hebrew Bible] that used to be read in the synagogues as part of the Haftarah (yearly reading), but later the rabbis decided to take it out of the Haftarah reading.
