Menagerie of Madmen

IMG_6942.JPG

Well, it’s official. A Nigerian group of crazies joined forces with, and pledged allegiance to, the Islamic State goons.

How nice.

It’s reported that Boko Haram, a Nigerian Islamist (Jihadist and terrorist) militant group, has joined their brothers in arms in imposing Islamic rule both near and far.

Again, how nice.

Abubakar Shekau, leader of the terrorist group, both intellectually and spiritually, demonstrated his impeccable morality last year in April when his group kidnapped over 200 school girls. Announcing the girls have been converted to Islam, he also claims to be waging a Jihad against Christianity.

Beautiful.

Sharia law, meaning the “way”, or the “path”, is sure different from the ways of Jesus. For instance, when Jesus stood at the well in Sychar and conversed with the Samaritan woman, he didn’t call for someone to beat her with sticks and stones because she was shacking up with some dude.

He preached revelation, repentance, and restoration.

And forgiveness. 

Well, the woman changed! Then, the townspeople changed.

Not so when the menagerie of madmen are in charge. Forgiveness? No way! “Beat the women, beat ’em good”, is the cry of the clan. “Spread the expectations far and wide; everyone is going to follow the laws of the wild animals. Every person, and every law.”

Or they die.

Especially the women.

Renounce Jesus or die.

Embrace Islam or die.

Grab a gun, put on your mask, and shout to Allah. Forget the inward voice calling you to repentance and submission to God Almighty. Ignore it; it will eventually go away.

How sad. 

But here’s what’s even sadder to me. People who can’t tell the difference between Islam and Christianity.

Between the law and grace.

Between death and life.

Between condemnation and forgiveness, punishment and mercy,  justice and justification.

Slavery and freedom.

Sharia law, enforced by the menagerie of madmen, isn’t even close to the “way” or “path” God had in mind. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, provided not only a “way”, but one which included truth and life.

Jesus said…, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6 ESV)

Eventually, sometime within the next ten years or so, I’m expecting to see these Jihadists humbled, brought to their knees, by the power of God.

The menagerie of madmen will bow their knees to the God of the Christian. 

Oh happy, yet sad, day.

Boko Haram, and groups like it, will NOT win or annihilate the world before the Lord’s appearance. Oh, they’re trying. But they don’t have that many guns, or masks, to affect the world.

How do I know?

I’ve already found the way, the truth, and the life. Justification and restoration, forgiveness and tenderness have been given to me through the only weapon Jesus ever used to defeat the enemy of my soul, the Chief Infidel himself; the devil.

The weapon called The Cross.

 

 

 

 

The Fruit of Muhammed

IMG_5355.JPG

The world has been experiencing the fruit of Muhammed for more than 1400 years. And it’s amazing to me that people are confused as to the nature of his religion.

It’s common knowledge, if you want to know what the root of something is, look at its fruit.

Fruit reveals the root.

Approximately 600 years before Muhammed came on the scene, sharing with his world the revelations he purportedly had received from God, Jesus made this statement:

“Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.” (Matthew 7:15-20 NLT)

Every day there is a news item about the group ISIS. Apparently these self proclaimed defenders of both the Islam faith and Muhammed’s reputation believe their sole purpose in life is to eradicate every person who is not a friend of their Prophet, or a follower of their religion.

So how come people are still so confused about who the real Savior is?

By their fruits you will know them.

Not once did Jesus, the Prince of Peace, ever instruct his followers to kill, maim, annihilate, bruise, or even look crossways at an “infidel”; i.e. – someone who didn’t share His beliefs.

Not once.

In fact, Jesus was known as a “friend to sinners”.

“Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” (Luke 15:1-2 ESV)

Jesus doesn’t force anyone to believe in Him. He does not resort to violence, terrorism or intimidation to present His claims. Everyone is allowed to choose.

“God loved the people of this world so much that He gave His only Son to die for the sins, and sinful nature, of each and every person. That way, WHOEVER believes in Him (commits their life to Him by receiving Him as Lord and Savior) shall not die (remain spiritually dead) but HAVE eternal life”, John 3:16.

Believe and have life. Don’t believe, and you and I remain the same, with an eternal consequence to face when we die physically.

And yet, the spirit of the age (the devil) has this world so confused into believing Jesus is the bad guy and Muhammed is the good guy!

But look at the fruit of Muhammed. Remember, the fruit reveals the root.

It’s time for people to realize that Muhammed is long gone. The spirit motivating his followers is the spirit of darkness; the spirit of satan, the one who WANTED to be God. The one who COULD NEVER be God; so he attacks God’s creation through false prophets such as Muhammed.

Muhammed isn’t anyone’s savior, he’s not coming back on a white horse or a slow train. His place, unless he received Jesus as his Lord and Savior, is in the place of the damned; eternally separated from the Presence of the Living God.

And no, he’s not being entertained by seventy gorgeous virgins, either.

Or even one.

Don’t buy the lies, or become entangled in the confusion regarding the real Muhammed or the true Savior, Jesus Christ.

Look at the fruit.
