Can you imagine Isaiah 2:1-4 being fulfilled, which says the trueKingdom of God will not teach WAR any more? It reads: “The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come you, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob [Israel]; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people; and they shall beat their swords [implements of war] into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: NATION SHALL NOT LIFT UP SWORD AGAINST NATION, NEITHER SHALL THEY LEARN WAR ANY MORE.”
Why would I mention this with a title: “Because They Hate?” The title of this weekly letter came from a book with that title by Brigitte Gabriel. She documents in her book WHY Muslims hate! She explains, because she was born and reared in Lebanon and learned first hand, WHY Muslims hate.
Americans will never understand WHY Muslims hate because we worship the true and Living God and His Son Jesus Christ, while Muslims worship the Moon God known as Allah. The average Muslim has never researched to learn why he or she believes in Allah. They teach Allah has NO son; therefore, anyone who believes in any God that has a Son is an infidel!!!
Because God the Father and His Son Jesus reveal themselves as LOVE, Christians cannot grasp how fathers and mothers could butcher their daughters – and other human beings’ daughters. We cannot relate to wealthy, educated men becoming suicide bombers. We cannot relate to mothers willingly blowing themselves up to kill other women and children, not counting men.
When will our leaders grasp the FACT that the Muslims involved in the first World Trade Center attack in the ‘90s, the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, and the 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Center, were simply acting upon the instructions given in the Koran? It is a FACT that it was in the name of Allah, not Jesus or even Buddha, that they destroyed the lives of thousands of Americans and obliterated an American landmark!
These were killers of the worst kind. Yet, they were heroes in the eyes of Jordanians, Palestinians, Lebanese Muslims, Syrians, Iranians, and Iraqis, indeed every Muslim country with a majority – who danced in the streets in celebration of the mass murder on 9/11. Who could forget the images of Osama bin Laden gloating and grinning with joy as he said: “We were overjoyed when the first planes hit the building. So I said to them be patient. More is coming.” With every phrase he spoke, his followers shouted: “Praise Allah.”
The literal translation of the word Islam in Arabic is “submission.” The word Istislam means “to surrender after a fight.” The Koran says those who do not submit (yastaslimoun) to Islam should be KILLED. That means death to Christians and Jews, and to ALL other non-Muslims. To them, we are considered infidels and must be eliminated.
Sura 8:59 in the Koran says, “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you can terrorize them.” Does that sound like a “peaceful” religion? Islam’s history of 1,400 years of violence and bloodshed around the world should be noted and believed! Islam is using the petrodollar to spread their terrorism around the world.
Sura 9:5 of the Koran says: “Fight and slay the PAGANS wherever you find them, and see them, belittle them and lie and wait for them in every strategy of war.” The PAGANS are you, dear friend! For the people who resist Islam, the Koran instructs in Sura 5:33: “Their punishment is execution or crucifixion or cutting off of hands and feet from the opposite sides or to be exiled from the land.” Islam commands this behavior!
Muhammad, founder of Islam, said to his followers: “Whoever relinquishes his faith, KILL him.” He also said: “I have been ordered by Allah to FIGHT with people till they testify that there is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger.” Mohammed’s behavior inspired Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini to say: “The purest joy in Islam is to kill and to be killed for Allah.” His words are what make Islamics suicide bombers against infidels!
Islam teaches the ONLY sure way to secure a “place in heaven” is to kill infidels!!! That is every non-Muslim on earth that will not convert.
Jesus is our only hope in this tide of hate?
