Europe’s moral and spiritual vacuum invites acts of terrorism
by Iben Thranholm
These days the media are overflowing with comments and analyses of last Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris. One particular angle is consistently ignored – or banished: religion.
This is a curious omission since the terrorists themselves issue statements that indicate that religion is their motivation.
The statement in which IS accepts responsibility for the attacks in Paris is made in the name of Allah and the killings are referred to as “a blessed battle whose causes of success were enabled by Allah”. It states that Paris was targeted because it is “a capital of prostitution and vice” and “the lead carrier of the cross in Europe.”
IS is consistently referring to the Parisians as “crusaders” – the audience at the Bataclan, however, are called “pagans gathered for a concert of prostitution and vice.” The statement closes with a terror threat to strike those who “dare to curse the Prophet and boasts about their war against Islam”.
A further look at the character of the attacks reveals with ever-increasing clarity their symbolic significance. They were carried out on a Friday, the Muslim holiday. The victims at the Bataclan were listening to music, which is banned in fundamentalistic Islam, and the first targets to be shot were guests at the bar drinking alcohol. The symbolism assumed a new dimension when the perpetrators started firing on the audience of a performance by the band ‘Eagles of Death Metal’ of its popular tune “Kiss the Devil”.
A series of images taken moments before the massacre started, members of the audience are seen making the hand sign used for devil worship, their index and little finger lifted in preparation for singing along with the lurid lyrics: Continue reading
The question is often asked of Christians: What would Jesus do? This is often in hypothetical situations. It is often used frivolously, even in advertising. For example, this image (right) was used in a discussion on health insurance in the USA.
But often times this question is posed to trip up the believer with some difficult, or apparently difficult situation. Jesus himself was presented with many difficult problems by those who tried to trap him during His earthly ministry.
One such situation is the case of the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11). The scribes and Pharisees brought a woman to him who was caught in the very act of adultery. (I don’t know why they didn’t bring the man also.) They challenged Jesus with:
Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. (John 8:5,6)
Jesus knowing their hearts, he could see their sin, said:
… He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. (John 8:7)
What’s in a name?
A lot really. Currently people like President Barak Hussein Obama is telling the world that ISIS, which stand for Islamic State in Syria, or as he prefers to call them ISIL, the Islamic State in Levant, is neither a state nor Islamic. He only ever refers to it by its name ISIL not ISIS. Here David Wood explains why. He also explains the method by which those who become radicalized do so. They are just following the tenets of their religion.
But ironically Isis was the Egyptian queen (female deity), the moon-god, sister to and wife to Osiris, the sun-god. Who are they really serving? It is not the Lord Jehovah.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (1 John 4:8)
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16)
Paul Wilkerson, at the 2011 The Berean Call Conference, exposes the diabolical ecumenical re-writing of God’s promise to His chosen people the Jews. It seems to be led by the Roman Catholics, with so-called evangelical Christians in bed with Islamic terrorists. Endorsed by Brian McLaren, the apostate from the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) (which teaches a political church on Earth). The agenda is one world, anti-Christ, Roman Catholic, anti-Semitic, socialist, communist, Islamist, devilish.
But the Lord says,
Thus says the LORD, which gives the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divides the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, says the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before Me for ever. Jeremiah 31:35,36
The sun, the moon and the stars will fail before God disinherits Israel.
The rise of Islam in the West
I see this as the Lord’s doing, the same way He sent the Babylonians to carry away Israel into captivity (Jeremiah 29:1-14) or the way He used the Assyrians (Isaiah 10:5) to chastise Israel for her sins. This time the chastisement is to the Christian Church (spiritually Israel) and again to the chosen people, the Jews, wherever they may be. I believe the Lord Jesus will come again and restore His assembly of believers, whether they be Jews or Gentiles. And the Lord will Himself judge those who disobey His laws and murder innocent people. Continue reading
15% of the nation of France is now Muslim. Currently we read of and see reports of racism against white French nationals, and for the first time since World War II an anti-Semitic pogrom. July 20th was also the anniversary of the “Vel d’Hiv Round-up”. This was the mass arrest of Jews in Paris in 1942 by the French police under the supervision of the Nazis. Kristallnacht “Crystal Night” was the night of November 9–10, 1938, when German Nazis attacked Jewish persons and property. Is this happening again? Continue reading
Ann Barnhardt speaking before the Colorado Patriots. VIEWER DISCRETION: Subject not for children.
Pedophilia, incest, bestiality, temporary marriages (prostitution) are accepted ‘legal’ practices in Islam. She speaks of the genetic damage done in the Islamic community because they marry such close relatives–cousins, even first cousins marrying first cousins. This then leads to a very high probability of passing of genetic defects (mutations) that have come from the grandparents, since both cousins would share the same grandparents. Continue reading
