The beast at the doorstep: a wake up call
Again, it is difficult for peace loving, hard working, church going Americans to suspend their disbelief of the atrocities committed by the Islamic State. Journalist Steven Sotloff’s head was sawed off by the Islamic coward who calls himself “Jihadi John.” It is no secret at whom the Islamic State caliphate is aiming–Israel and the Christian West. The IS murderer proclaimed in his execution video: “We take this opportunity to warn those governments that enter this evil alliance of America against the Islamic State to back off and leave our people alone.” While politicians point to the Islamic State not discriminating between Muslims, Jews and Christians, they lack understanding and need to be woke up from their denial.
The IS fancies itself as an apocalyptic end time system. Its goal is to gain political power, land mass, converts, and economic power through taking spoil. Yes, it will continue killing Muslims until they submit to the caliphate’s authority. Those in the predominantly Judeo-Christian area outside of the 10/40 window (Northwest Africa to China and containing over 1.1 billion Muslims in 28 countries) are to be brutally brought into submission to the caliphate. Americans and Europeans, for example, will have to deny their very spiritual being to possibly avoid death. This is not a political war, it is a war of religious ideology that cuts to the very marrow of a Christian’s and Jew’s soul and spirit.
Our leadership needs to wake up. The occupant of the Oval Office continues to draw shallow line after line in the sand, but in reality, his delaying tactics on not having a plan or a strategy or waiting for international involvement, are aiding and abetting his namesake. Government leaders are saying that good government is the answer to stopping the IS, not the US military. Some 11 commercial jetliners were taken from the Tripoli Airport, prompting government warnings that they could be used in 9/11-style attacks against US and European targets. Judicial Watch, an extremely credible government watchdog, says the US government has issued a warning of possible Jihadists attacks from terrorists entering the US at will–across the open Southern border the “president” refuses to secure. Tells us about good government.
The Sharia system imposed by Islam matches well with Revelation’s description of the beast government. Revelation 13:16,17 says, “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 20:4, “…and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands.” We may be witnessing the march of prophecy. Instead of self indulgent proclamations about what God is going to do for us, we need to be summoning the Lion of Judah within us. Wake up before the beast is at our doorstep.
