The Modern World
"The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the good news."
The words of Jesus two thousand years ago. Matthew 3:2 10:7 Mark 1:5 Luke 21:31
Those who wait on the Kingdom are those who believe the good news that the Kingdom of God is at hand.
Video: Sean Hannity interviews an Imam
Hannity is part of the problem, not the solution.
As you watch this video think about the differences between what those who wait on the Kingdom believe and what radical Islam believes. Can you identify the differences?
What does radical Islam believe about these subjects and what do you believe about these subjects?
"Submission to the will of God"
The Imam in this video says that "Everybody must submit to the will of God," To which implication, the interviewer, Sean Hanity responds Everyone has a different god. "You gotta' get over it!"
Radical Islam is fighting against the American way of life. Which is freedom to believe anything you want. And if you don't believe that anyone can believe anything they want, you should be locked up.
That contradiction is the American way. And the western way.
To believe in the validity of all gods is to believe in none. If which god is not important, then no god is important nor higher than any other.
So if those who wait on the Kingdom believe very similarly to radical Islam, what are the differences? Did you catch them in the video?
The God of Islam is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Islam believes that Mohammed is the direct descendant of Abraham through Ishmael. And they believe that it was Ismael, not Isaac, that Abraham was willing to sacrifice. But that isn't an ideological difference. The ideological difference is an implication of that. Muslims actually believe that Ismael is the race of promise not Isaac, but Ismael took wives of strange woman. Muslims don't believe race is important. Completely contradictorily, they believe that any race can convert to Islam and Muslims are indeed of all races, just like modern Christians. Esau married into Ishmael's line and they both took strange wives. The joined descendants of Ismael and Esau have been doing so ever since. This means they are cisterns that can not hold water.
Muslims of radical Islam also believe in the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth just like those who wait on the Kingdom, but their other difference with those who wait on the Kingdom is for when God calls one to action. Muslims of radical Islam believe that they can bring in the Kingdom by their own hand. Whereas, Gideon give us the worthy example. Gideon heard voices and saw a figure. The voice told Gideon to burn down a sacred place of worship, sacred to his village, his town, his city. Gideon followed Moses' Deuteronomy 18:22 and John's I John 4:1 instruction to test the spirits and asked for proof that this was the voice of God. "Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of?"
Judges chapter 6
Gideon did not take action until God showed him a sign, proof that the voice he heard was from God. Only then did Gideon burn down a place of worship venerated by the people of his village. The modern world sees this as an act of terror, an act of intolerance for other religions and other points of view. They did in Gideon's time as well. Gideon was not applauded. No one believed Gideon was doing what God told him to do. On the contrary, Gideon did this at night to avoid capture and then had to run as a fugitive.
The modern western world would be unable to distinguish what Gideon did from what radical Islam is doing now. In fact if a modern reads this email that I wrote, he might begin to think that I am a potential candidate for radicalization. That is exactly how people in Gideon's day reacted to Gideon. He was not a hero. He was a fugitive criminal.
Do any of you think that modern authorities are going to understand taking action only if the voice one hears proves itself? Or are they going to believe that anyone who might take action upon hearing a voice poses a threat to society?
Jesus said that they are going to haul those who wait on the Kingdom into court, question them and their answers will be divinely inspired so that the entire world will hear the plan of God and the world will hate them for it.
How could this possibly take place? Does the world hate the "Christians" who are being persecuted by Muslims in Africa? No they don't. They put them on the news as heroes, examples of radical Islam's intolerance.
Do courts in the United States broadcast the testimony of people they arraign? No they don't. So how are the words of Jesus going to come true?
"ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. And the gospel must first be published among all nations. Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21
Watch this video. In this video, a man did something so horrific and his answers to the judge's questions so bizarre that this arraignment was video taped and broadcast. The accused said "I'll let it in the hand of God."
This appeared on
And before a black judge. How appropriate for a message of tolerance.
Follow this man's case, John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr. I am quite certain you'll find he was hearing voices. He is what moderns call schizophrenic. He murdered his daughter in a horrific way. People HATE him. His words were broadcast because people hate him and are afraid of this sort of violence just like the intolerance of radical Islam.
It seems that radical Islam and schizophrenic violence are shaping a world where the words of Jesus in Matthew 23, Mark 13 and Luke 21 can come true over the next few years maybe sooner. Those who wait on the Kingdom would not attempt to bring the Kingdom of God by their own hand, but they believe that the Kingdom of God will be established in extreme violence. Those who wait on the Kingdom would not do what a voice tells them if it doesn't pass the test given by Moses, but they realize and believe that voices have spoken to men and shall do so again.
The Perfect Storm.
When radical Islamic terrorism comes to the US, the US people will demand the government do something. We will begin to see court proceedings, especially arraignments broadcast more and more. This will be to frighten people by showing them the outrageous things the accused say. When the terror doesn't stop, the government will get more aggressive. They will go after people before they commit an act of terror. They will actively seek those who hold intolerant beliefs. This effort is further helped by the threat of cyber terror. Showing the public the intolerant beliefs of those who wait on the Kingdom frightens people into turning their friends and family in. The task forces already being assembled by western nations to fight terrorism on the web will make the task of finding people who believe the God of Abraham and agree with Gideon much easier.
"ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death."
"Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."
It is as if numerous unrelated events are springing up to put together a world exactly as Jesus described. If you doubt this look at what is happening in Europe right now.
“The whole of France must mobilize against the horror [Attack on Charlie Hebdo] that struck our country yesterday. You can’t attack freedom of expression, attack the authority of the state in this way,”
"The UK Chancellor pledged on BBC Breakfast to give the security services 'all the resources and all the legislation' necessary to prevent a terrorist attack in the UK."
"This is the national priority. We will put the resources in, whatever the security services need they will get because they do a heroic job on our behalf."
"In the modern world they [the intolerant and terrorists] communicate through the Internet, through email, through social messaging and all the technical ways that we are aware of. So, our intelligence agencies, acting under law, acting on good reasonable grounds with authority, have to the power to intercept particularly international communications that might be relevant to preventing terrorist attacks."
"What we need to do now is to use all the means at our disposal as a constitutional state to combat intolerance and violence," Merkel said at a conference in Berlin.
"Xenophobia, racism, extremism have no place here. We are fighting to ensure that they don't have a place elsewhere either."
"Now French authorities, while still piecing together how such violent attacks could have been staged in the capital, must also be concerned by the possibility that other homegrown groups may be passing unnoticed — or may be similarly underestimated"
"Violence is contagious like a disease. Its cure is racial diversity, wealth and gun control."
"highlight domestic and international efforts to prevent violent extremists and their supporters from radicalizing, recruiting, or inspiring individuals or groups in the United States and abroad to commit acts of violence, efforts made even more imperative in light of recent, tragic attacks in Ottawa, Sydney, and Paris."
There is no end to these news articles. Wait till a major terrorist event occurs on US soil.
While these sound exactly like the scenario I made up in an email four months ago about this very subject,
"Amid public outcry over the simultaneous Chicago and Dallas bombings which killed over 200 men, woman and children by two different native born American men both of whom were Jihad sympathizers, President Obama orders the formation of a task force who's mission is to use the NSA's massive database of social media, email, phone records and the US mail service combined with a person's travel history and suspicion of cash transactions for daily purchases ( if one doesn't have a bank account, why?) who's mission is to use this information to ferret out religious fanatics and others who are unwilling to denounce the violent parts of the Quran, Jewish and Christian bibles."
I did not make these news articles appearing above up. These are now real news and real head lines.
