Appendix Six of Allah, Divine or Demonic, shows that Islam is NOT increasing as panic-mongers claim
It is commonly believed that Islam is the world's fastest growing religion. Many writers report great leaps forward in the number of mosques in western countries, and they give numbers for immigration which would seem to sustain the terror that Muslims will soon control the US House, the Senate, and the British Parliament.
friend, why do you
are coming to
Christians who claim
I beg to differ. While Islam is certainly a growing religion, it is not the fastest growing cult at all. The myth of Islam's rapid growth is moderated greatly by understanding how mosques come and go. Outside of the Middle East, the majority of mosques are in homes and rented buildings. They flourish for a while, then the congregation re-groups, as some abandon Islam, while new members immigrate into the Western world fresh from the Middle East. In this process, a new location is found for the house-mosque, and the old one is abandoned. I have seen very little evidence that Americans are being converted from Catholic, Baptist, or any other churches, to Islam.
As far as the non-western world, the new converts to Islam are often very secular. In Egypt, Coptics "convert" by going to Friday prayers. This is done so that they will be seen by the Imam, and potential employers, thus enhancing their job hunting status. Their Coptic Orthodoxy is of the cheap variety anyway. This kind of "convert" to Islam becomes secularized very quickly if he moves out of Egypt to a neutral or democratic nation.
This applies to the vast majority of the Muslims you will meet all over the world. The problem is that the media never tells you about these Muslims. They only show the mad mob of frenzied bigots screaming for blood in the streets of Teheran or Khartoum.
A much more pernicious religious cult of the end times is far ahead of Islam, and truly taking over the world. The religious system which is now rising up will indeed rule the world, and the old Roman Catholic Church will be at its head. Vatican II laid out a strategy far more insidious than any Islamic plan to rule the world, and John Paul II is making every compromise necessary to reach the point where he rules all sacred and secular things. He is even hinting at the Roman Church's guilt in the Nazi Holocaust and the millions slaughtered in the Inquisition.
What nation has diplomatic relations with Mecca? None! But many nations beg at the Pope's hand for recognition, and it is imperative for kings and presidents to kiss up to His (alleged) Holiness. Not the least of these is Israel, where the Whore Church will attack the Jews during the Great Tribulation, subjecting them to canabalism, according to prophetic teachings.
We hear the praises of the Pope from Protestants like Billy Graham, Jack Van Impe, Bill Bright, Chuck Colson, and TBN and 700 Club on television. None of these men are running to Mecca. Of course, in these "perilous times" anything is possible, so we may yet see a Mullah of Islam being fawned over by Paul Crouch on TBN.
Charismatics now join whole heartedly with Rome, the same Rome that attacked their missionaries in Mexico and Africa in the 1950's. Malachi Martin, in The Keys of This Blood, made it very clear that there is a well-thought-out strategy in the Vatican to rule the world. He makes it clear that they believe it is their right and destiny.
Opus Dei, a secret organization of storm troopers who are pledged to destroy Protestantism, may soon be pressed into action as the Pope introduces a seductive Protestant sounding "Protocol of Salvation". The Chuck Colsons and Jack Van Impes of washed out Protestantism will lead the charge back to "Mother Church."
We also see that Europe is coming together into a united power with the United Nations and the EU. Who does the General Secretary of the United Nations exalt? Answer: Europe and one-world power. He couldn't care less for the Sheiks of Arabie. Please read below how the worldwide religious Whore system will finally rise up. It may well include Islam and every counterfeit Baptist, Pentecostal, and Methodist filthy bird that refuses the rule of Christ in the Church, and is left behind when Christ takes His true Church to heaven:
Revelation 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
Revelation 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. Not the Vatican, as some imagine, but seven Middle Eastern nations which make a league with Satan, the antichrist, and with the Whore church.
Revelation 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. or, every pagan and filthy cult and world religion. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
The Vatican, and the Pope, are simply setting the trend for this. The coming Whore may not even be headed by the Pope, but by some world religious leader who steps forward at the right moment, such as Billy Graham, Pat Robertson, or the Dalai Lama.
In January of 2002, Three Ethiopian Christians were ordered deported for their Christian faith; but first they were confined in the Bremen Deportation Prison and brutalized. They were suspended by chains while being flogged with a flexible metal cable, kicked and beaten with various objects. After the torture, when they arrived at the prison hospital for treatment, they were slapped by medical personnel, turned away, and told to "come back here only after you are dead."
By comparison, in the early 1st Century AD, the Christian Church was founded in Jerusalem by Jesus; He founded it by dying sacrificially for all mankind. Its beginning, with 120 believers in an upper room, was explosive: its numbers increased by 2,500% in the very first hour of the very first morning! From that morning, the Church spread in about 40 years across the entire known World. How? By ordinary people of all classes having their lives transformed from within, and then telling others what had happened to them, as the Holy Spirit's power confirmed their testimonies with miracles. The only blood shed in the founding and spread of Christ's Church was shed voluntarily by its Founder - His own.
The critics of the Church will take issue here, speaking of the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, Northern Ireland, and the Conquistadores; but those were acts of a corrupted Church in the Middle Ages, and have nothing to do with Christ and the founding of the Church in the 1st Century.
We must conclude that, based on the many failures of all gospels or hate and blood shed, that the Gospel of Jesus Christ will prevail. Let us have no more of this Christian paranoia, for those who whisper in terror of the increase of Islam are agnostics, for they deny the words of Jesus Christ himself:
Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Continuing the above text: 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen (Mother Church), and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
Islam has no cohesive strength at all. Mecca has no committee or headship over the Dar ul-Islam, The House of Islam, nor will it ever have. It ought to be very clear to anyone who follows the news that Muslims get along with each other very poorly, so how will this divided house rule the world, as modern panic mongers would have us to believe?
The truth is, in many places where Islam and Muslims are found, it is a very friendly place for general living. Sudan, Arabia, Malaysia, and a hand full of other nations, are very hateful toward non-Muslims. But; Lebanon, Cairo, Jordan, Iraq, western China, Dearborn, Michigan, and Birmingham, England are very secularized, and Islam there is not the main event at all. Look on the map and you will see how little of the world Islam actually controls.
Those who perpetuate the myth of Islam's future rule of the earth, also forget that God made it very clear whom He would enlarge in the world. The Bible, Genesis 9:27, God shall enlarge Japheth, (father of the white race) and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem (Jews and Arabs); and Canaan (the black race) shall be his servant. The fact is, the white race has been a lot more treacherous on Semitic people, both Jews and Arabs, than Islam has been on the white race. The caution should be to the Arabs and Israel: Beware of the West and the Roman Catholic Whore Church.
Please, dear Christian friend, stop this big-eyed credulous terror of Islam. Give them the Gospel, and keep an eye on the real enemy since 300 AD-- the Roman Catholic Whore.
The West needs a new "other," or enemy, to replace the Soviet Union and justify the brutal ongoing United Nations mini-wars. The Arabs serve very well for this purpose, but the saints of Jesus Christ need no enemy other than Satan himself. All Muslims are candidates for heaven and we must see that they hear the glorious Gospel of Christ.
Illiteracy is an enforced aspect of Islam and will never change. This insures that Islam will NOT gather in the minds of advancing people. Islam does well recruiting only prisoners, criminals, welfare dependents, and losers in the West because these people find, in their mental and intellectual malaise, that Islam is a step up. To everyone else in the West, Islam is a step down, way down.
Islam, the farther away from Mecca it is, abandons the Sharia laws and the assault by the sodomite Mullahs on the human soul, and it adapts to the freedom of thought and choice of the West. Islam is rapidly becoming civilized, for the first time since Muhammed. Also, Muslims in the West use their free minds to invent and become creative. Creativity is seen as the supreme evil in Mecca and by Shiite radicals near the epicenter of Islam. There is NO chance of these Muslims, who are free of the sorrow of Sharia Law, enlarging Islam in any way. Indeed, they are far less interested in Din and Islamic expansionism than their old friends "back home." I have had many Muslims in the USA, after I asked them what religion they followed, tell me what every good Episcopalian or American agnostic would tell me, "I don't care to discuss religion." I have also had American Middle Eastern Muslims tell me, "I am a secular Muslim." That is the dead beat response of most people in Christendom today. These Muslims, like many alleged Christians, ".... did not like to retain God in their knowledge...." Romans 1. In fact, I find it harder to talk to a secular, and safe, Muslim than to speak of Jesus Christ to a radical doctrinaire Muslim.
