World History and Developments in the Middle East
To be able to understand the Mystery of God one must be able to understand the difference and be able to judge/discern (1 Cor. 2:15) between the natural body and the spiritual body as spoken of by the apostle Paul in 1 Cor. 15:44.
More importantly one needs to be able to understand the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil as depicted in the header as displayed on top of every page and article of this website (Genesis 2:9,17; 3:22; Rev. 22:20).
The history of the Middle East dates back to ancient times, and throughout its history, the Middle East has been a major centre of world affairs. The Middle East is also the historical origin of major religions such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
All those that are able to see, hear and read can learn of the history of mankind by studying history books and the last few decades almost everything a person wants to learn can be obtained from the Internet.
However, spiritual truth can only be taught by God and not by man. For a better understanding of this we invite you to read the article Ye Need Not That Any Man Teach You on this website. The Word of God is confirmation of God's teachings and revelations (Galatians 1:10-12) as it was written by those that were inspired by the Spirit of God. Without God's intercession mankind is not able to understand the Bible as it is spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:14). There is nothing arcane about the Gospel we preach as God will reveal the mystery of the Bible to all those that believe (Mark 4:11; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10).
The history of mankind and the recent developments in the Middle East are easy to follow and understand and can be followed daily on your local TV Stations or other forms of media.
The latest developments in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Jordan and Algeria can all be summed up in one sentence as it was reported by a local TV Station according to man's wisdom (1 Cor. 2:4-6).
"After thirty years as ruler of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak family's net worth is estimated between 40 and 70 billion dollars". So, why is everyone so surprised that the people are taking to the streets and why do the media keep asking so many questions; What – Where – When – Who – How, while the answers for the present and the future are so simple?
Consider the bank accounts of leaders of other regimes and consider the politicians of your own countries and compare the size of their bank accounts from the time they entered office to the time they retired from public duty. Consider their income, expenses, outrageous pensions, and other perks that may even include kick-backs, while the average person has a difficult time and some may even have to work two to three jobs at the same time to make ends meet. The duty of political leaders is supposed to serve the needs of the people not their own. Human nature is the same the world over and it should come as no surprise therefore that it is enmity with God (Psalm 51:5; Romans 8:7; Gal. 4:8; Eph. 2:3; James 4:4). When you sow corruption – you reap corruption!
The purpose of this website is to explain the history of mankind according to the wisdom and knowledge of God, in the hope that all of mankind will be able to come to the acknowledging of the truth (1 Tim. 2:4). This particular article is for the purpose of putting the latest developments in the Middle East in a spiritual context.
The division among nations and the people of this world has its roots that date back to the days of Adam & Eve, who lived in the area, now called Baghdad, Iraq, from approximately 4,000 – 3,070 BC.
You can learn more about the ancient history of Baghdad by reading the articles Creation, Who is God and who is Satan? and The Mystery Babylon listed on this website.
As you read about the history of mankind you need to keep in mind that mankind is separated from God and the history of wars among religions and the division among people and nations of this world is the direct result of mankind not willing to accept God's message of repentance, as the people of this world prefer darkness over light (John 3:19).
Regardless what the media and the religious and political leaders are telling you, the situation in the Middle East will not improve and any peace treaties will only be temporary as they have in the past. The issues that affect all of mankind are all spiritual (Romans 8:6; 1 Cor. 2:14). Increased political unrests in the Middle East and the recent uprising and the revolt of the people in Egypt are no coincidence.
According to Reuters.com the United States has given Egypt an average of $2 billion annually since 1979, much of it in military aid, according to the Congressional Research Service. The combined total makes Egypt the second largest recipient of U.S. aid after Israel. In simple language it means that the U.S. has in fact purchased control of the Egyptian army during the reign of Hosni Mubarak.
However, it should be noted that 94.6% of the almost eighty million Egyptians are Muslim and the eventual political outcome of what happens in Egypt will be inevitable. Money and the purchasing power by the U.S. will not be able to solve the problems in Egypt or any other country in the Middle East
During the latest National Prayer Breakfast President Barack Obama used great swelling words and prayed for the people of Egypt and better days ahead. As we have explained in numerous articles, God does not heareth sinners; but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. Obama's declaration that he believes in Christ is misleading as he follows after a false Christ (Matthew 24:24) and his faith is without foundation. All you need to do is reflect on the prayers of last year's National Prayer Breakfast and you will learn that they were all in vain (Matthew 15:9). You can learn more about this by reading the article Barack Obama ~ President of the United States of America on this website.
Consider the prayers by the Pope who has prayed publicly for peace for more than a thousand years but there never has been any peace. A day does not pass without a war or some other conflict being raged somewhere in the world. We invite you to read the article Popes and the Princes of This World listed on this website.
What they don't know is that even Christ prayed not for this world (John17:9; 1 John 5:19) and neither do the believers, as this present world is Satan's Kingdom, a divided kingdom that will not stand (Matthew 12:25). God listens to the voice and prayers of even two believers (Matthew 18:18-20). The prayers of the believers are without ceasing, in the hope that God will manifest Himself in such a way, that the people of this world will come to know that they have been sent with a message of truth (John 11:42).
To better understand the hate fueling modern day Islamic movement, one must first look back to its roots. From Ishmael, whose birthright was denied, to Esau and Jacob - rivaling twins, the seed of hate was sewn. What evolved thereafter was a bitter, jealousy that has been passed down to every Arab generation since. By the 7th century, this ancient hatred made its way into the heart and mind of a man named Mohammed - an Arab and descendant of Ishmael, who founded a religion and used it to justify his countless, criminal acts of rape and murder.
Both the western media and the Arab press routinely offer biased, politicized answers to what they believe drives this Islamic hatred for the west. From 'US support for Israel' to 'US secularism,' we've heard them all, and despite attempts to justify their inhumane acts, the truth is, Muslims have been committing terrorist acts for some 1,300 years - long before 'western culture' or 'US support for Israel' ever existed. And despite such history, politicians and the media continue to ignorantly look elsewhere for the reasons.
From the early days of Islam to today's globally televised beheadings, Muslims are simply acting-out what Mohammed believed, and what the Qur'an teaches. And when Qur'anic Law was given the opportunity to govern, its violent, 7th century intolerance was seen through the eyes of Afghanistan's Taliban - a view of converting and uniting the Arab world under Islamic Law by sword first, and everyone else second.
What truly is at the heart of the Islamists hatred today is no different than that which fueled Mohammed's hatred as he wrote the Qur'an. It is the belief and goal of a one-world, global Islamic empire run by Qur'anic Law whereby everyone must, in the end, convert to their fundamentalist ideology or face beheading. The hatred that fuels this theocracy dates back to Ishmael and his son-in-law Esau, and from there, compounded to form the foundations of Islam, which is the reason why most of the world conflicts today involve Muslims.
The Origins of Hatred
Ishmael and Isaac
In 1,910 BC, Abraham's wife, Sarah, frustrated with her inability to have a child and impatient with God's timing, asked Abraham to give her a child through their Egyptian maidservant 'Hagar' (Genesis 16:1-2).
Hagar, servant that she was, submitted to being used this way. But her pregnancy gave birth to strong feelings of superiority toward Sarah. During Hagar's pregnancy, friction began to develop between Sarah and Hagar and when Hagar could no longer endure it, she fled into the desert. There God instructed her to return to Sarah, promising, "I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude" (Genesis 16:10). Into this tense, atmosphere Ishmael was born and for 13 years Abraham thought Ishmael's birth had fulfilled God's promise (Ishmael would become the progenitor of today's Arab world - the Arabs are an Ishmaelite race).
When Abraham reached 99 years of age, God appeared to him and announced that his wife Sarah would bear him a son and that they would call him Isaac. And it would be through Isaac that God would establish His covenant (Isaac became the father of the Israelites). Abraham struggled with this because he loved Ishmael dearly and desired that he be his heir and receive the birthright blessings (Genesis 17:18)
But the birthright was denied to Ishmael (Genesis 17:16-19). After the birth of Isaac, Hagar and Ishmael were sent away at Sarah's insistence (Genesis 21:10), Sarah was adamant that Ishmael should not inherit along with Isaac. God instructed Abraham to do as Sarah desired, but He reassured Abraham that, "...also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed (Gen 21:13)."
But God also knew what kind of people Ishmael's descendants would be when He spoke prophetically to Hagar saying: And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren (Genesis 16:12).
"His descendants settled in the area from Havilah to Shur, near the border of Egypt, as you go toward Asshur (Genesis 25:18). And to this day Arab hands have been "...against every man and every man's hand against him" and they lived in hostility toward all their brothers.
Ishmael was not a spirit of implacable hatred and murder against Isaac, but rather one of envy and rivalry. Ishmael's position in the family had been radically altered by Isaac's birth. This had wounded his proud spirit, and provoked him into a jealousy. And time has not softened this spirit of envy either. Attitudes and historical perspectives are often transmitted from father to son and from generation to generation. The effects of the domestic rivalry in the household of Abraham are still being felt to this day in the on-going Arab-Israeli conflict.
In time, Ishmael became the father of 12 sons (his descendants are called Ishmaelites) whose names are recorded in Genesis 25:13-16. Ishmael also had a daughter named Mahalath (Bashemath), who would later marry his half-brother Isaac's eldest son, Esau (Esau's descendants were known as Edomites).
Ishmaelites were marauding nomads who traded with Egypt (Jacob's son Joseph would later be sold by his brothers to a passing band of Ishmaelites - Genesis 37:25-28). They led an untamed existence in the deserts south and east of Canaan and were known for their wandering, lawlessness, and freebooting lifestyle. Ishmael died at the age of 137 (Genesis 25:17) and just as God had promised, his 12 sons grew into "a great nation" with him as clearly the preeminent forefather of the Arab world (The Arab peoples today number over 140 million and are destined to play a significant role in the development of future prophetic events). The Muslim population grew to 1.57 billion in 2009.
The relationship between the Ishmaelite Arabs and the Biblical Israelites is thus clear: Ishmael was the elder half-brother of Isaac, son of Abraham, by way of Hagar, who settled in central and northern Arabia. Isaac in turn, had twin sons, Esau and Jacob. From Jacob - later renamed Israel - descended the Jews and the other tribes of Israel. The Israelis and the Arabs are cousins!
Esau and Jacob
Ishmael's younger brother Isaac, whom he lost the birthright to, had twin sons, Esau and Jacob. And while Esau and Jacob were yet in their mother's womb, the children struggled together within her (Genesis 25:22). God explained that, "...two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder (Esau) shall serve the younger (Jacob) – Genesis 25:23.
Esau's name would later be changed to Edom, and Jacob's would be changed to Israel (his descendants, by way of Isaac, would be Israelites). Both brothers were destined to father a great nation. As firstborn, Esau was the legal inheritor of the birthright, which fell to the eldest son in each generation. But Esau undervalued it and sold it to Jacob for a bowl of red lentil soup (Genesis 25:28-34).
Later, Jacob - disguising himself as Esau - tricked his father Isaac (Abraham's son whom God had confirmed His covenant with) into bestowing upon him the blessing confirming the birthright (Genesis 27). By this piece of deception, Jacob earned Esau's implacable anger. Bitterness and vengeance filled Esau's heart. "And Esau hated Jacob . . ." (Genesis 27:41).
Forty centuries have not sufficed to wipe out the effects of this deep-seated enmity between Esau and Jacob! The two peoples have continued in their antagonism up to this present day! Historically, the Edomites - especially the Amalekites, the chief tribe of the Edomites - have been bitter foes of Israel.
Significantly, descendants of Esau mingled and intermarried with Ishmaelites and their neighbors. As kinsmen, a close affinity existed between them (In Psalm 83, the descendants of Esau and those of Ishmael are found in alliance against End-Time Israel).
Some rabbinical schools in Israel today teach that the Palestinian Arabs - the most ardent adversaries of the Israeli state - are Amalek. There may indeed be some validity to this notion, in view of the prophecy of conflict between Amalek and Israel from generation to generation (Exodus 17:16).
Geopoliticians continually misdiagnose Arab hatred towards Israel and her supporters because they fail to recognize its historical roots. For 16 centuries this bitter hatred was perfected and passed down from Arab generation to Arab generation and by the time of the 7th century, one particular Arab criminal - Mohammed, a self-proclaimed prophet - arrived on the scene fully equipped with a self-defined religion that permitted he and his Arab brothers to commit violent acts of murder and rape in the name of a god.
The Foundations of Islamicism
Mohammed's rise to prophethood
Mohammad Ibn Abdallah was born in the year 570 AD to the Quraysh Tribe in the city of Mecca. His father died before he was born and his mother Amina died when he was 6 years old (Mohammed claimed descent from Ishmael's son Kedar). At the age of 25, Mohammed married a 40 year-old wealthy, widow named Khadijah who owned trading caravans. Traveling as a representative of Khadijah's various business interests, Mohammed was exposed to many Jews and Christians and became enthralled by their theology, particularly their concept of a single deity. It was at this time he began to envision a single, united Arab state under a single 'god.'
Secular history records that in 610, by which time Mohammed had become the leader of his tribe, he was in a cave meditating and seeking to discover which of the jinni was indeed most powerful and worthy to become the tribal jinni of his family. Mohammed claimed that one of the jinni appeared to him and identified himself as the Angel Gabriel and appointed him as 'prophet.' Mohammed immediately began to promote himself as a prophet of god and aggressively began recruiting in and around Mecca while challenging the idol worship of pagan Arab's.
As new Islamic recruits began arriving in Mecca, they were without money and resources and realizing this, Mohammed and his recruits began raiding neighboring tribal settlements and passing caravans using the booty to fund his vision of a united, Islamist empire. Caravan raiding was a practice widely practiced by Arab tribes and was used as a means to maintain a balance in power. This is where the Muslim doctrine of 'Jihad' was first instituted.
As animosity began to build in Mecca against Mohammed and his teachings, fearing for his life, he and his band of followers fled north to what is today known as Medina. This journey became an annual, religious pilgrimage made by Muslims and is today called the 'hijra.'
In Medina many warring Arab tribes submitted to Mohammed's leadership and self-professed prophet-hood. Hoping to garner Jewish tribal support for his military campaigns, Mohammed conveniently had yet another vision that his Allah wanted Muslims to do their praying facing the then Christian city of Jerusalem. But because the Jewish tribes rejected his prophet hood, ridiculed his revelations, and refused to join Islam, Mohammed stopped this practice and reverted back to praying while facing in the direction of Mecca.
In 626 AD, Mecca amassed 3,000 soldiers to confront 1,000 Muslims at the battle of Uhud. The Muslims were defeated by the army from Mecca and retreated to Medina. In 627 AD, the Meccans, in the hope of ending the caravan raids by the Muslims, assembled 10,000 solders to attack the Muslims in the city of Medina. After a two week siege in the hot sun they were unable to penetrate the fortress like city and returned to Mecca.
The Muslims next began to consolidate their power with the surrounding Arab tribes and begin the slaughter of the non-conformists. One such Medina group that remained was the Jewish tribe - Banu Qurayza. According to Mohammad's sacralized biography by Muhammad Ibn Ishaq, Mohammad himself sanctioned the massacre of the Qurayza, - this last thorn in his flesh.
Sowing the Roots of Terror
The Banu Qurayza had been reluctant in helping Mohammed against the Quraysh (Keep in mind that the Quraysh' tribe were Mohammed's own people). Conveniently once again, Mohammed claimed that he had divine knowledge about a conspiracy by the Banu-Qurayza to kill him. This became his justification to starve the tribe into surrender by besieging their fortress for twenty-five days. He then sentenced every male member of the tribe to death, enslaved all the women and children, and plundered all of their property.
The prophet had an immense trench dug around the main market of Medina and then the men of the Banu Qurayza were rounded up one by one and forced to the edge of the trench on their knees. They were offered a last chance to convert to Islam and if they refused, their heads were cut off. As soon as one head would roll off, the corpse would be kicked into the ditch, and so it went. By daybreak hundreds of corpses had been piled up in a heap, tangled cesspool of blood, hair, and shreds of flesh. Despite the horrific end in front of their eyes, none of the Jews chose to convert to Islam and faced death valiantly.
The blood of nearly 900 innocent Jews stained Mohammed's hands on that black day.
Their only crime was that they chose to retain their fundamental human right, of choosing their own God and the religion of their ancestors. Hysterical women and children screamed as they watched their fathers, husbands and sons brutally murdered. The majority of them were savagely raped and then bundled off to be sold as 'used goods.' The prophet had the husband of the Jewess Raihana Bint Amr hacked to pieces before her very eyes hours after he had murdered her father. After these atrocities he raped the mortified girl and tried to force her to convert to Islam.
Many Muslim revisionist-historians promote the idea that Raihana Bint Amr willingly submitted to Mohammed. According to this logic, it is very natural to imagine that a woman, who has just seen her husband, father, brothers, and tribe slaughtered violently before her very eyes, would choose to convert to the religion of the murderer and marry him! Ultimately she refused to convert to Islam as well as marry him so he retained her as a lowly concubine for the rest of his life. Mohammed was nothing but a serial rapist, who acquired his victims by killing their families first.
In short, Allah the all merciful is affirming that any non-Muslim woman is fair game to rape provided she is "captured" first. How divine!
A group of Muslims from the Khazraj tribe decided to prove their loyalty to their prophet by killing off a respectable member of the Jewish community. Abu Rafi was an elderly man who had never done anything against Mohammed or the Muslims. He just happened to be the unfortunate target of Mohammed's plot to terrorize the Jews. The Prophet wanted to send out a message to the Jews, which spelt out clearly that Mohammed was in control of their lives. The 'expedition' to kill the poor old helpless man had the specific blessings of the 'merciful' prophet. Several Islamists broke into the old man's house in the middle of the night and slashed him to ribbons as he slept. The cowardly Muslims always assassinated people in this way, while the victim slept, obviously because they had neither the courage nor the strength to fight even a solitary, aged Jewish man while he was awake. After their crime, the Muslims fled back home into the welcoming arms of their expectant prophet.
Mohammed attacked the Banu-L-Mustaliq tribe slaughtering many of its members in a surprise raid, and driving the rest into the sea. They looted away a booty consisting of 2000 camels, 5000 sheep and 500 women! The 500 women were captured screaming and crying while they watched their husbands and sons being slaughtered. The most beautiful captive was Juwayriyya, daughter of the chief of the Banu-L-Mustaliq. Mohammed snatched her to satisfy his own lusts. The captured women were supposed to be returned by the Muslims upon payment of a ransom, but the night after the battle itself, Mohammed and his army raped each and every one of them.
Any human being with the slightest shred of morality has to be nauseated by this man and the religion he preached. Mohammed, the supreme religious figurehead of Islam, sanctioned rape, pure and simple. Not only did the Muslims commit this horrifying crime, they deceived the tribesmen into paying ransom for their womenfolk, who only paid the money in a desperate attempt to save their women's honor.
As Mecca began to feel the economic impact of its trading losses from continued Islamists attacks, Mohammed's power and influence continued to grow in the north. In 628 AD, the Meccans signed a 10 year peace agreement named, 'The al-Hudaybiyah,' with Mohammed and his Muslim followers. This treaty allowed Muslims to return to Mecca and worship at the Kaba once a year. Out of fear, the people of Mecca would leave their city when the Muslims would come to worship.
Two years later, in January 630 AD, Mohammed nullifies the treaty of al-Hudaybiyah and invades Mecca with an army of 10,000 terrorists, conquering it. He options the citizenry to convert to Islam or be killed by sword (beheading). From Mecca, the 'Muslims' wage Jihad on the surrounding cities forcing them to accept Islam as their religion and Mohammed as their prophet. Through their policy of 'conversion by the sword' Islam had spread as far as Spain, India, and most of North Africa by 637.
Mohammed made his final Hijra in 632 and died unexpectedly 3 months later in June. His friend and father in law Abu Bakr (Father of Aisha) succeeded him as leader of the Muslims.
The centuries that followed, from the Iberian Peninsula to the Indian subcontinent, jihad campaigns waged by Muslim armies against infidel Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, Buddhists and Hindus, were punctuated by massacres, including mass throat slittings and beheadings. During the period of 'enlightened' Muslim rule, the Christians of Iberian Toledo, who had first submitted to their Arab Muslim invaders in 711, revolted in 713. In the harsh Muslim reprisal that ensued, Toledo was pillaged, and all the Christian notables had their throats cut.
Mohammed was in fact a terrorist, criminal, and murderer whose entire life and teachings were based on victimizing innocents and indulging in mindless violence and massacre. He was a man who destroyed peace wherever he went, and in its place brought terror, carnage, and death. So how can it be a mystery to anyone that his teachings - the Qur'an - would reap a harvest any different than what the world is experiencing today?
Much contradictory information has been circulated over the media regarding what the Qur'an does or doesn't say. And the spin justifying or defending it has been as confusing and contradictory as the book itself. So, to be objective and factual, let's let the Muslim so-called holy book speak for itself.
- The Qur'an commands Muslims to fight non-Muslims until they exterminate all other religions and Islam would be the only religion in the world – the ultimate goal of Islamicism.
- The Qur'an commands Muslims to terrorize and torture and kill anyone that disobeys Allah and the prophet Mohammed.
- The Qur'an commands Muslims to convert non-Muslims to Islam by force.
- Some prominent Muslim clerics call the suicide bombers martyrs because, as identified here, the Qur'an states a martyr is guaranteed both total forgiveness of his sins and eternal life in paradise. In this so-called paradise, he can drink wine and be married to as many as 72 beautiful, sensual virgins.
Recent jihad-inspired decapitations of 'infidels' by Muslims have occurred across the globe in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Nigeria; Hindu priests and 'unveiled' Hindu women in Kashmir; Wall Street Journal reporter, and Jew, Daniel Pearl, American's Nick Berg and Paul Johnson, Jr, and most recently South Korean Kim Sun-il. Based on Mohammed's seeding of Islam, we should not at all be surprised that these contemporary paroxysms of jihad violence are accompanied by these 'ritualized' beheadings. Such gruesome acts are in fact sanctioned by core Islamic sacred texts, and classical Muslim jurisprudence. Empty claims that jihad decapitations are somehow 'alien to true Islam,' however well-intentioned, are simply just not true as history will attest.
The following is a report of the world's changing demographics and the Islamic Conquest through Muslim Population Growth. Again, this kind of information only confirms historical data and confirms what is to come. Keep in mind that spiritually speaking the whole world lieth in wickedness (1 John 5:19) as mankind is controlled by the forces, principalities, powers, the rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph. 6:12). This is why we call all of mankind everywhere to repent and turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).
Islamic Conquest by Muslim Population Growth
The world is changing. The global culture our children inherit will be vastly different than what it is today.
According to research, in order for a culture to maintain itself for more than 25 years, there must be a required fertility rate of 2.11 children per family. With anything less the culture will decline. No culture has ever reversed with a fertility rate less than 1.19. With a rate of 1.13 it is impossible to reverse. It would take 80–100 years to correct itself and there is no economic model that can sustain it during that time. As the population shrinks, so does the culture.
As of 2007 the fertility rate in France was 1.8, England 1.6, Greece 1.3, Germany 1.3, Italy 1.2, Spain 1.1.
Across the entire European Union of 31 countries, the fertility rate is 1.38. Historical research tells us that these numbers are impossible to reverse.
In a matter of years Europe as we know it will cease to exist. Yet the population of Europe is not declining. Why?
Of all population growth in Europe since 1999, ninety percent has been Islamic Immigration.
France 1.8 children/family – Muslims 8.1. In southern France, traditionally one of the most populated church regions in the world, there are now more mosques than churches. 30% of children age 20 and younger are Islamic. In large cities like Nice and Paris that number has grown to 45%. By 2027 one in five Frenchman will be Muslim. In just 39 years France will be an Islamic Republic.
In the last 30 years the Muslim population of Great Britain rose from 82,000 to 2.5 million, a thirty fold increase. There are over 1000 mosques, many of them former churches.
In the Netherlands 50% of all newborns are Muslims and in only 50 years half of the population will be Muslim.
In Russia there are over 23 million Muslims. That is one out of 5 Russians. 40% of the entire Russian Army will be Islamic in just a few short years.
Currently in Belgium 25% of the population and 50% of all newborns are Muslim. The government of Belgium has stated that 1/3 of all children will be born to Muslim families by 2025. Just seventeen years away.
The German government, the first to talk about this publicly, recently released a statement that the fall of the German population can no longer be stopped. Its downward spiral is no longer reversible. It will be a Muslim state by the year 2050.
Muammar al-Gaddafi of Libya said: There are signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe, without swords, without guns, without conquest. We don't need terrorists, we don't need homicide bombers. The 50+ million Muslims in Europe will turn it into a Muslim Continent within a few decades.
There are currently 52 million Muslims in Europe. The German government said that number is expected to double in the next twenty years to 104 million.
Closer to home the numbers tell a similar story. Right now Canada's fertility rate is 1.6, nearly a full point below what is required to sustain a culture. And Islam is now the fastest growing religion. Between 2001 and 2006 Canada's population increased by 1.6 million, 1.2 million of those through Immigration.
In the United States the current fertility rate of American Citizens is 1.6. With the influx of the Latino nations the rate increases to 2.11, the bare minimum required to sustain a culture. In 1970 there were 100,000 Muslims in America. Today there are over 9 million.
The world is changing and changing fast.
Three years ago a meeting of 24 Islamic organizations was held in Chicago. The transcripts of that meeting showed in detail their plans to evangelize America through journalism, politics, education and more. They said: We must prepare ourselves for the reality that in thirty years there will be 50 million Muslims living in America.
The world we live in is not the world in which our children and grandchildren will live.
The Catholic Church recently reported that Islam has just surpassed their membership numbers. Some studies show that Islam's current rate of growth, in five to seven years it will be the dominant religion of the world.
There has been a lot of mention recently of the Muslim Brotherhood and we encourage you to read the subject on the Wikipedia page of Google, especially the section on the History of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
It is well known that religion has always played an integral part in the political unrest throughout the world, especially the Middle East. To give people a better understanding of the developing story and the growing unrest in the region, you will need to know that the Muslim Brotherhood has played an important role in all of this, an extremist organization that will become more visible as the history of mankind continues to unfold before us.
The following is a copy of the long-term objective of the Muslim Brotherhood taken from their Wikipedia page.
"The general goals and strategic plans of the MB are only found in Arabic documents. One for Europe called "The Project" was found in 2001 in Switzerland, another for North America was found in 2005 called the "General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America." An evaluation of this Memorandum was made for the US-Congress and for the Pentagon. Their influence is fast growing, especially in Europe, but not easy to trace while the active members have to keep their membership secret.
One citation from the document "General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America" makes the objectives of the MB clear: "The process of settlement is a 'Civilization-Jihadist Process' with all the word means. The Ikhwan (Arabic for brothers) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's (Islam) religion is made victorious over all other religions."
We do not wish to rewrite all of history but encourage all those that seek spiritual truth to turn to God for repentance and when He opens your eyes you will be able to understand what caused the division between Muslims, Jews, so-called Christians and other religions that has existed for thousands of years. Through the Baptism of Repentance (Mark 1:4) you will learn that all the religions of this world fall short of the glory of God as explained on this website. Seek and you will find!
A close-up study of The Mystery Babylon and Mother of Harlots, Mormonism, Islam and all other major religions, one can draw many similarities how these religions all want to gain world dominance through their man-made and false doctrines. However the most important thing is the knowledge that they all serve the same spirit and the spirit of this world in which there is no salvation (Luke 9:55). The religions of this world, being ignorant of God's righteousness, have all gone to establish their own righteousness but have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God (Romans 10:3). The Muslims do not know what they believe in and neither do the members of all other religions. This is how the natural spirit of mankind has transformed itself into an angel of light (2 Cor. 13-15). By nature they service unto them which by nature are no gods (Gal. 4:8).
While the media already talks about a Caliphate (the office or dominion of a spiritual head of Islam) and is informing the world that the Middle East is on fire, they continue to be the ones that play the fiddle, as they refuse to communicate the spiritual side of this developing story, including the role of the nation of Israel, which has been in the making for six thousand years..
While they continue to communicate a message that does not provide any solutions and a message in which there is no salvation, they refuse to communicate God's message of Repentance and the Gospel of Christ. For this very reason the forces of darkness will prevail and things will wax worse and worse (2 Timothy 3:13). We say the truth in Christ, we lie not and our intuitive consciousness is without error (Romans 9:1; 1 John 2:27).
Throughout the history of mankind God has always shown His hand and judgment as part of human history and He has always sent forth people to proclaim His message and to warn the nations (Ezekiel 3:18; Hebrews 11:7). Unfortunately, mankind's desire to prefer to live in darkness (John 3:19) keeps them separated from God. In fact they would not believe, even if one was to rise from the dead (Luke 16:31).
Consider the floods and cyclone that have devastated Australia recently. We invite you to read the article Julian Gillard ~ Prime Minister of Australia listed on this website. In our letter we wrote her the following.
"We know that the days we live in are as they were in the days of Noah (Matthew 24:37-39). In his days people were un-repenting and only few believed in Noah's message of repentance. As ministers and soldiers of Christ our challenges are very similar and the choices that people are called to make are no different today as they have always been."
Like the Prime Minister of Australia mankind has a choice to make (Proverbs 1:29; Hebrews 11:7) but we know that no matter what happens in the Middle East, people will continue to reach out to those that provide false and misleading information, including all the media reports in which there is no salvation.
Once again the only message that is able to make a difference in one's life is our message of Repentance, which is the same message as it was preached by Christ and the apostles.
The gospel we preach is not after man, we neither received it of man, neither were we taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ (Gal. 11-12).
To give you a better understanding of the divisions among the religions of this world, we encourage you to read all of the pages and articles of this website, especially the articles The Mystery Babylon, Can Christianity or Any Other Religion Save You?, Mormon Church ~ Cult and Spiritual Harlot and Repent so that you may come to know the spirit that by nature you have been born with, which is the cause of all of mankind's problems and this present world (Satan's Kingdom).
The Bible is correct in all things even when it records in Revelation 12:9 that the whole world is being deceived. We have merely been called to show the people of this world 'how' and by 'whom' they have been deceived.
