GOD’S PLAN FOR MIDDLE EAST IS WORKING PERFECTLY

Middle Eastern Christian Woman Tells Americans Not to Pray for Persecution to End

God’s plan for the Middle East is “working perfectly” even though the persecution of Middle Eastern Christians is seemingly getting worse by the day, a persecuted Christian woman told American churchgoers on Sunday.

The Christian woman, who is referred to by the pseudonym of “Maryam” for security purposes, was encouraged by a group of six pastors and ministry leaders from the United States to travel to America and share her family’s story of persecution and speak about the dedicated faith displayed by Christians in the Middle East.

As a whole, persecution and harassment are daily struggles for Middle Eastern Christians, Maryam said.

Although Christians in the west might view persecution as a bad thing, Maryam and many other Middle Eastern Christians view persecution as a necessity to help the Church continue to grow in a hostile part of the world.

“The persecution is getting worse and worse and worse,” Maryam said. “But on the other hand actually, what has encouraged me, encouraged my faith, encouraged my church, encouraged everybody Christian in [the region] is that the Church is increasing.”

Maryam explained that while some radical Muslims are brutally killing and persecuting so called non-believers and claim to be acting in the name of Allah, many other Muslims in the Middle East are starting to open their eyes and ask serious questions about the religion they espouse.

“A lot of Muslim people now, they are so confused about what is going on now. A lot of them are asking, ‘Who is this God whose name is Allah, who orders people to slaughter?'” she said. “They are confused and they are asking and wondering now days about ISIS and about what is going on. We are talking to them and asking them ‘Please, open your Quran and search what is written,'” Maryam continued. Yes, this God named Allah does call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. At least 109 verses promote violence.

The Changing Face of the World – Meet the First Muslim Mayor of London

British politician, Paul Weston, has long cautioned about the Islamization of Britain, he warned that Khan’s rise is a harbinger of things to come:

“The previously unthinkable has become the present reality. A Muslim man with way too many extremist links to be entirely coincidental is now the Mayor of London. Mayor of the world’s greatest city, to be in charge of police and security. I suppose this is hardly a shock, though. The native English are a demographic minority (and a rapidly dwindling one) in London, whilst Muslims from Pakistan and Bangladesh are a rapidly expanding demographic. Khan — who won 57% of the ballot, or 1.3 million votes, a number which happens to be roughly equal to Muslim population of London

“In a couple more decades Britain may well have its first Muslim Prime Minister, and I think we can safely assume he will be of the same ideological stock as Sadiq Khan…. Reality cannot argue with demographics, so the realistic future for Britain is Islamic.”

Daniel Shayesteh in his book, The House I Left Behind – A Journey from Islam to Christ, states the Muslim agenda clearly: “I lived Islam as a radical and a committed Muslim and was aware of the plans committed Muslims had for Australia and all other western communities. They come to the West to penetrate and change western civilization, until it collapses, giving way to Islamic rule.

It was terrifying for my family to see the establishment and growth of their plans in the West…. It was shocking to us to hear and read that many people in the West believed that Islam carries the same values as other beliefs… People are losing their interest in distinguishing the difference between peaceful and terrorizing ideologies since everything is believed to be right and there is nothing to be called the best and absolutely true. You are called unethical if you challenge Islam. Therefore, not many people dare to take a stand against anything the Islamists are imposing on society, simply for fear of offending someone.

Islam is not only incompatible with democratic values, it also has instructions for the destruction of these values. According to Islam, Muslims have no right to fit themselves to the values of non-Muslims, but have to force or lead others to change to suit Islamic values (to lie to infidels is encouraged in the Koran). I was a Muslim leader myself and taught how to permeate the infidel western societies, destroy their cultures from the inside and pave the ground for Islamic law. For example, Muslims have been trying to stamp their Islamic logo of ‘Halal’ on everything in order to Islamize everything. They ignore the rights of the majority and pronounce openly that the foods prepared by non-Muslim hands are unclean.”

Joel Richardson in his video series The Return is Near outlines the prophesied events in the Bible and how Islam and the Antichrist/Mahdi/12th Imam dovetail into these events. What we see unfolding now in the Middle East and Europe, makes it extremely difficult to not see the link to end times events prophesied by Daniel, Jeremiah, Isaiah and other OT prophets, and in REVELATION.

IS ISLAM A RELIGION OF PEACE?

ISIS is attempting to model “Orthodox Islam,” and Islam says they are a “religion of peace. But we need to understand that they don’t consider peace like a westerner would. They only mean that peace will come after they have conquered the world and all people submit to Allah and Sharia Law. The Koran prescribes violence until then. This is an incredibly important nuance to understand and explain to others. Muslims only tell the world half the story.

Irish Muslim leader, Raied al-Wazzan, who has brought charges against an Irish Pastor who dared preach against Islam had this to say about the city of Mosul in Iraq after ISIS conquered it:

“Mosul is the most peaceful city in the world . . . the Islamic State came to protect a section of society that had been marginalised.” Mind you this is after Jihadists had murdered or expelled all of the city’s 2,000-year-old, 60,000-strong Christian community.

This Muslim leader further stated that Sunni Muslims (who agree with ISIS) could now walk the streets of Mosul without fear. This is the “peace” Muslims claim: totalitarian control and the conversion or murder of Christians and everyone else who doesn’t pledge submission to the Caliph. That is the peace they are looking for. Islam is the most violent ideology on the planet towards those who don’t submit to it.

This aspect of Islam is challenging to Christians who don’t want to believe that the Muslims they befriend and work with accept this violent ideology. The correct answer is that all don’t. There is a reform movement in Islam that attempts to distance itself from “Orthodox Islam,” because human conscience naturally rejects violence against innocents. However, it is important to understand that these reformers are rejecting their own scriptures and the “model” life of their prophet.
