The Truth About Islam
Most of the West, Europe, and other non-Muslim nations have been given a false vision of Islam.
Islam teaches that if a Muslim will participate in, produce weaponry for, and/or die as a result of Jihad (the war against infidels – non-Muslims) they will gain sure entrance into Allah’s paradise. Otherwise, they can only hope to be saved if at the end of their life, their good deeds outweigh their bad. This is why the killing will not end because many Muslims are being deceived by Satan into believing that by killing non-Muslims, they are offering a service to their god, Allah.
Islam destroys not only man’s freedom, but so much more. Even though Christianity remains the largest religious group, Islam is the fastest-growing religion in our world today.1 Although Muslims and many others claim that the Islamic god, Allah, is the same as the Christian God, Yahweh, this is untrue. What they do not understand is the following:
Jesus said, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come by Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” (John 8:42-44)
I beseech all Muslims to pray to the God of Abraham and ask Him to show you the truth. Then start comparing the Bible with the Qur’an and God will reveal His truth to you because those who seek will find. This is His promise.
‘Jihad’ means “struggle” or “holy fighting” in the cause of Allah or any other kind of effort to make Allah’s word, Islam, prevail. Jihad is regarded as one of the fundamentals of Islam.2 Muslims have clear instructions to distribute their Islamic religion in non-Muslim countries using any and all means available to them – including force. And as history testifies, Mohammed’s preferred method in spreading Islam was through war and bloodshed. Jihad is ordained in Islam.
Qur’an:“Jihad is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.” (sura 2:216)
The Goal of Islam
Islam’s ultimate goal is to rule the world and submit it to the law of Allah. This is why it is vital not to allow Sharia law into our democratic nations. “Ruling the world” describes what is prophesied in the Bible concerning the Antichrist. Sharia is an intolerant system, which chokes the freedoms of capitalism and the Western ideals of “liberty and justice for all.”3 Islam, like the Antichrist, comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). And stealing people’s liberty and freedoms is just another “kind of effort” Satan is using to make Islam prevail. Please take note how Sharia law is politically destroying Britain, France, and the Netherlands. Islam is also seeping into our school systems, under the guise of multiculturalism – U.S. and world history textbooks have been actively glorifying Islam, while corrupting the Judeo-Christian roots of the United States and Western civilization.4
Because of the countless acts of terrorism occurring in our world today, Jihad is extremely important for everyone to understand. Its effects are worldwide and unless we recognize the destruction it causes, and democratic nations stop allowing this antichrist religion to take over politically, the earth’s free nations will be utterly destroyed. In the footnotes of my Qur’an published and purchased in Saudi Arabia:
“Al-Jihad in Allah’s cause with full force and weaponry is given the utmost importance in Islam, and it is one of its pillars on which it stands. By Jihad, Islam is established, Allah’s word is made superior, and His religion is propagated. By abandoning Jihad, Islam is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honor lost, their lands stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape from this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a hypocrite.” In the same Qur’an, there are 21 pages following the Appendix explaining a Muslim’s duty to take part in Jihad.
Islam not only mandates terrorism towards non-Muslims, but also decrees the killing of Muslims who have converted to another faith. One Omani student I had met became a Christian after Jesus had appeared to him in a dream. When his father discovered his conversion, he threatened to kill him if he returned to Oman. Since Muslims from such countries are well aware of their home country’s laws, they take these threats very seriously. Consequently, he never returned to Oman and was soon awarded immunity from the American government. I have befriended two additional Muslims who had also received dreams of Jesus speaking to them and now have accepted Him as Lord and Savior. We must pray more for Muslims.
Along with Islamic nations, now in Britain, France, the Netherlands, most recently in Canada, and entering into several other countries, one can be arrested for speaking against Islam.
Muslims are taught through their Qur’an and Hadith that Jihad secures salvation and pleasures in paradise. A Muslim can only hope that if his good deeds outweigh his bad in the end, he may gain salvation. Therefore, by Satan deceiving them into believing that killing in the cause of Allah will ensure a one-way ticket to paradise, Jihad/terrorism will not end.
The Antichrist and the Mahdi
I firmly believe that from the antichrist spirit of Islam, will arise the actual Antichrist himself, known as the Mahdi, who Muslims believe is their coming messiah. Several similarities exist between Biblical prophecies of the Antichrist and Islamic prophecies of the Mahdi (known also as, “al Imam Mahdi” and “the 12th Imam”). Both the Mahdi and Antichrist come as alleged peacemakers during a time of global chaos. Both establish a one world government and one world religion. Although there is speculation on the number of years the Mahdi will reign, most Muslims believe it will be a 7-year period, as is with the Biblical Antichrist, which ends with the Judgment of Earth.
