Will certainly Islam Rule?
Khaled Mash’al, leader from the Hamas movement which often won the Palestinian elections in Jan 2006 gave the speech in Damascus which was transmit on al-Jazeera TV on February third 2006. He told the European nations around the world to apologise to be able to Islam because: ‘Tomorrow, our nation will certainly sit on the throne worldwide. This will be not a figment of the imagination, but a truth. Tomorrow we are going to business lead the world, Thor willing. Apologize nowadays, before remorse will not do you good. Our region is moving forwards, and it is in your curiosity to respect the victorious nation. ‘ His speech went on to say that the first period of the Islamic world conquest will be the elimination of His home country of israel and the defeat of the West in Iraq.
Iranian Chief executive Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wants. He said in Iran’s holy town of Qom about 5th January, ‘We must believe in typically the fact that Islamic is just not confined to be able to geographical borders, ethnic groups and nations around the world. It’s a common ideology that prospects the planet to justice. ‘ He thinks his main quest is always to ‘pave the path for your wonderful reappearance of Vorbeter Mahdi, may Jahve hasten his re-occurrence. ‘ According to Shiites, the twelfth imam disappeared since a child in the year 941. They consider he may return plus be known as the ‘Mahdi’ and reign upon earth for more effective years, before introducing a final common sense as well as the end of the world.
Concurrently the entire Islamic world has been roused to bear over cartoons imprinted in a Danish newspaper. We have got evidence (available on request) which shows the way the cartoons row has been cleverly altered by Islamic radicals with all the aim of uniting Muslims in opposition to the West to be able to create submission to Islamic demands and also to defend Iran in addition to Syria against skin from the EL. It is not a co-incidence that Denmark is usually set to assume the rotating obama administration of the You. N. Security Authorities — at the very time that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is likely to recommend Iran for the Security Council and demand sanctions. Concurrently the particular Security Council wants to question Syria plus the regime of Chief executive Assad about the particular murder of Lebanese President Hariri. To portray Denmark because ‘an enemy associated with the Prophet’ might be helpful to be able to the Islamic world in creating the idea that almost all censure of Islamic countries is portion of an anti-Islamic traditional western conspiracy.
In the particular UK, Islamic market leaders are using typically the cartoons controversy to place pressure on typically the government to restrict so what can be stated inside the press regarding Mohammed. Patrick Sookdheo of the Barnabas Finance comments on this specific, ‘If we pass laws or even just create a new code of practice for the push specifically to protect Prophet, I fear it could end up being the thin end associated with the wedge. Coming from self-imposed censorship we could soon move to be able to more serious situations. Within Pakistan there offers been a mandatory death sentence since 1991 for ‘defiling the name’ associated with Mohammed. ‘ He or she goes on to show just how the Muslim Activity Committee is definitely typically the cartoons furore to be able to reverse the beat suffered by the Muslims when the Residence of Commons suddenly voted to complete the Racial in addition to Religious Hatred Expenses in a form which would not provide the protection for Muslims which the government had intended.
The cartoon controversy generated a demonstration in the streets of London with coupure calling for ‘infidels’ to be beheaded and showing support of suicide terrorism. One said ‘Europe you’ll come moving when Mujahadeen come roaring. ‘ Right now there was widespread invective at this demo and moderate Muslims sought to length themselves from that. However days later a poll associated with British Muslims revealed that 45% favour the establishment regarding Shari’a (Islamic) legislation in Britain.
This is in collection with the world vision of Islam which from the particular times of its creation is to bring the world into subjection to Allah as defined in the Heiliges buch des islam. Mohammed’s mission has been universal, using the aim of not only preaching, but likewise changing all existing societies into an Islamic society ruled by the laws of Allah, known as the Shari’a.
Therefore Islam grants radical Muslims a mandate to alter the existing community into an Islamic society, to make Islam supreme, in addition to thus dominate every factor of society. This will be not the particular desire of fundamentalists just like Osama bin Stuffed, but would appear to be able to be the wish of a giant number associated with Muslims around the globe.
This specific desire is shown in a record written in 1980 entitled The Islamic Movement in the particular West by Khurram Murad who was after that the head of the Islamic Foundation together with branches around typically the world. He outlined his Islamic trend and the system of how in order to bring it about in the West.
On page three associated with his document this individual posed the question: ‘What is an Islamic movement? ‘ He goes on to answer: ‘An Islamic movement is an organised fight to alter the existing society into an Islamic society based upon the Koran plus the Sunna, create Islam, which is usually a code regarding entire life, supreme and dominant. ‘
Such views can find ample justification within the Koran which instructs that Muslims has to be supreme over no Muslims and ought to be engaged in a jihad in order to achieve this till the Day of Judgement.
‘So drop no heart, neither fall into lose hope. For you should gain mastery, when you are real in faith. Fight those who consider not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor maintain that forbidden which usually hath been forbidden by Allah plus His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the testers of typically the Book (i. electronic. Jews and Christians), until they pay out the Jizya (poll tax charged against not Muslims residing in a Muslim society) together with willing submission, plus feel themselves subdued. ‘ Sura At-Tawba 9: 29 (Yusuf Ali’s Translation).
Thus will Islam principle the world? Associated with course expressing typically the aim of world domination and achieving it are a couple of different things. Hitler promised 1000 12 months Reich but inside 1945 Berlin place in ruins and typically the Nazis were broken. The Communist Manifesto spoke from the inevitability of world wave and Communist dominance, but in 1989 the Berlin Wall came down and 1991 the Soviet Union fell. I recall talking to outrageous eyed Maoists from Speaker’s Corner in London through the 1972s who said their particular brand of The reds would be victorious and the thoughts regarding Chairman Mao might last 10, 1000 years. Now capitalism has come to China in addition to Mao’s Red Guide is a collector’s object. Will the same thing happen to the Islamic radicals? Can we find any idea about this inside the prophecies of the Bible?
The particular Islamists have choosing them is typically the wealth generated by simply oil reserves inside Middle Eastern nations that has financed much of the distribute of Islam worldwide. It also gives a powerful indicates of exerting pressure on the sleep of the planet. ‘Don’t upset us if you would like a regular supply of the oil required to keep your system going. ‘ They will also have a new wide network associated with mutual support groups from the mosques and Muslim organisations plus the concept of ‘umma’ which ties Muslims to each other and means of which if the first is upset all are genuinely offended.
There are a number of points they do not have opting for all of them however. Whilst it will be true that the particular West is dependent on oil most of which originates from Muslim countries, the Muslims are furthermore influenced by the Western to supply technology plus trade. If these people destroy the West they also is going to be destroyed in the particular process. It also requirements to be said that inspite of the idea of ‘umma’ the Muslim world is usually divided along many lines – Sunni and Shi’a, moderate and radical, Arabic and non Arab. In fact the biggest killers associated with Muslims nowadays are other Muslims. Amongst non Muslims terrorism and the sort of agitation let loose by the cartoon controversy has improved a feeling of fear and hostility towards Islamic in much regarding the world.
When we come to typically the Bible there are two major problems we need in order to take a look at relevant to be able to this question. First of all the issue regarding Israel and the particular surrounding nations. There are a quantity of passages within Bible prophecy which often show that from the end regarding this age the particular Jewish people will return to His home country of israel and make the once desolate property a fertile one again (Ezekiel 36). Jerusalem will end up being focal point associated with world attention (Zechariah 12. 2-3).
Surrounding nations will be hostile to Israel and fulfil the particular words of Psalm 83. 4, ‘Come let us slice them off from being a nation, of which the name associated with Israel may be kept in mind no more’. Inside verses 6-8 associated with this Psalm there exists a list of nations, which may be identified with Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Gaza, Syria in addition to Iraq. In 1948, 1967 and 1973 Israel has got to fight battles for survival against superior armies through these countries twisted on pushing the Jewish state to the sea.
In this Psalm there is a reference to Zeba and Zalmunna, who said, ‘Let us take for ourselves the pastures of God with regard to a possession’ (v 12). We find reference to Zeba in addition to Zalmunna in Judges 8. They had been kings of Midian, leaders of the particular army, which came against Israel inside the days of Gideon. In Judges 8. 21 we read: ‘Gideon arose and killed Zeba and Zalmunna plus took the ornaments that were on their camels’ necks’. Typically the Hebrew word applied for ‘ornaments’ will be ‘ha saharonim’, a unique word, which will be correctly translated within the New King James Version as ‘crescent ornaments’. Typically the crescent ornament demonstrated dedication towards the celestial body overhead god of paganism. Today there exists a world religion, which also uses the crescent as its mark – Islam. Islam embodies everything spoken of in this Psalm in its attitude towards His home country of israel. It is typically the dominant religion of the countries, which surround Israel. Nevertheless the countries which come against Israel inside Psalm 83 usually are defeated and are usually not successful inside their aim.
The prophecy of Ezekiel 38-9 goes further and brings in a great power to be able to the uttermost to the north leading the soldires of Gog and Magog which consist of Persia inside their quantity. While there is significantly debate amongst bloggers as to the particular identity of the nations around the world involved there is no doubt exactly where you get to in the event you go in order to the uttermost northern of Israel — Russia. Russia these days is emerging from your humiliation of the collapse of the particular Soviet Union to be able to become a major player in globe affairs having its massive oil and fuel reserves and the growing arsenal associated with weapons. Russia provides a large Muslim population within its borders and the particular Asia republics of the former Soviet Union have Muslim majorities. Although Russian federation became unpopular together with the Islamic radicals over its coverage in Chechnya, it offers historically favoured typically the Arab states aggressive to Israel. President Putin has invited Hamas leaders in order to Moscow and typically the Russians are providing the fabric for the construction of the Iranian nuclear power train station in Busheir which is the trigger of the present crisis. If the United States or Israel assaults Iranian nuclear amenities it could bring Russia into typically the fray from the Middle East powder keg.
Whether Russia is the subject of the prophecy is debatable (we have a new tape / CD on the subject available upon request at ï¿½3 including postage). What is not debatable is that Serbia / Persia is usually. In addition to the possibility of Russia, the nations which come against Israel on this occasion are Islamic. They come using the intention of getting rid of Israel but these people meet their doom around the ‘mountains of Israel’ as Lord intervenes directly and destroys those armies. (Ezekiel 38. 18-23).
The next question to ask is whether or not this event will be the same since Armageddon (Zechariah 16, Revelation 16 in addition to 19). There are usually a number of reasons why I consider it is not really (given on the particular tape already mentioned). If it arrives some time prior to Armageddon one has to ask ‘What would be the particular effect on the particular Islamic world of such an event? ‘ Not even close to conquering typically the world frist by mastering Israel, Islam would suffer a humiliating defeat as a result of Lord not any human being power. The Holy bible says that this event will result in the Lord (i. e. the God of Israel) to become ‘hallowed in the sight of several nations’ (Ezekiel 39. 27). The very clear implication of the is usually that Islam will not succeed in ruling the world.
The Scriptures teaches that ‘the Antichrist is coming’ but in addition that ‘many antichrists have come’ (1 John a couple of. 18). It is usually my view of which the Islamists are among the ‘many antichrists’ that will come before typically the end of days but not the Antichrist. While they have got many characteristics associated with antichrist – refusal of Jesus because Son of God, persecution of Christians, a goal of worldwide rule : there are the number of top features of the Antichrist that do not effectively fit in with Islam. The primary types are these.
Based to 2 Thessalonians 2. 3-4 the other coming of Jesus will be forwent by the revelation associated with the ‘man associated with sin… who opposes and exalts themselves above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sits as God in the temple associated with God, showing themself that he is usually God. ‘ In other words he opposes not only the true Lord but all gods. This is also shown inside Daniel 11. 37 and Revelation seventeen. 16-17. He also proclaims himself to be god (just as the Both roman Caesars did). Both of these aspects of the coming Antichrist are usually entirely contradictory to Islam which thinks in submission in order to Allah and is usually wholly opposed to anyone claiming in order to be a our god equal to Allah.
In Revelation 13 the false prophet units up a picture in order to be worshipped simply by all and causes all to receive the mark of the beast with out which they are not able to purchase or sell. The praise of images is forbidden under Islam so, just how could a good Islamic leader deliver in such a method? This also indicates a highly scientific society which provides developed the means to give every person a number in addition to to control all of them by some type of indicate which gives them the ability to be able to buy or sell. This fits in much more with a society dominated with the technology developed in the West.
The Bible shows that at typically the end of days the Beast or Antichrist will principle the world: ‘And authority was provided him (the beast) over every group, tongue and nation. ‘ Revelation thirteen. 7 and plus the dragon (Satan) who gives him his power usually are worshipped by all peoples. As we all have seen Islam aspires to globe dominion. Yet, in my opinion it is lacking in the ability to deliver with this. A person can threaten nations around the world with terrorism plus cause chaos but this does not really make you popular. The implication regarding Bible prophecy is the fact that initially the Antichrist will be well-liked offering people ‘peace and safety’ (1 Thessalonians 5. 3) and stay worshipped inside return, just like Hitler was popular any time he came in order to power and has been worshipped by individuals raising their hands and saying ‘Heil Hitler’. It will be hard to notice how Islam may ever take this kind of a position globally.
