Is Islam for Women? Terrorists seek another 'Jihad Jane'

Bloomberg did an article on this. 

Their goal to widen the pool of prospective terrorists beyond traditional Middle East and Asia sources is part of a search for “white al-Qaeda” activists who could foil racial profiling and initiate attacks, according to Evan Kohlmann, a consultant with FlashPoint Partners, a New York-based security research company.; accessed Apirl 28,2010.

Evidently, all their good suicide bombers are gone.  Who would've thought?  HEY, WANNA KILL YOURSELF?  SIGN UP, GREAT BENEFITS!  Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that Muslims say if the women are good and obedient here on earth, Allah may allow them to turn into a man in heaven, assuming he lets them in!

Women, whoever you are think about this.  You think Islam is beneficial for women?  According to Muhammed, Hell is MOSTLY populated by WOMEN!  Bukhari vol. 1, no. 28 "The prophet said "I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful."

Bukhari vol. 1, no. 301 "Allah's apostle... said, "O Women!  Give alms, as I have seen that majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you women... I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you."
Bukhari vol. II, no. 161  "The Prophet then said... "I also saw the Hell-fire, and I had never seen such a horrible site.  I saw that most of the inabitants were women."

Ladies, think about that!   Do you want to give your lives for a religion like that?

Honoring which Name?

Luke 13:34-35 34 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, just as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not have it! 35 "Behold, your house is left to you desolate; and I say to you, you will not see Me until the time comes when you say, 'BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!'"

John 5:43 43 "I have come in My Father's name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him.

Jesus wept over Jerusalem, the city that rejected Him, and ultimately put Him to death. The Jews will not honor the Messiah, but they will honor one who comes in his own name, to their own destruction. The man of lawlessness will come and will make a covenant of peace with the Jews for 7 years (Dan. 9:27). They will honor this man, but to their own destruction. After 3 ½ yrs., this man will declare himself to be God, and will behead all who do not bow to him. Not until Israel has gone through 3 ½ yrs of the worst persecution in history will they cry out, “Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the LORD.”

Prophecy Fulfilled and Headlines Report It

5 Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will tremble and rejoice, because the riches of the sea will become yours, and the wealth of the nations will come to you.

Isaiah 60:5 (HCSB)

18 Of Zebulun he said, "Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going forth, And, Issachar, in your tents. 19 "They will call peoples to the mountain; There they will offer righteous sacrifices; For they will draw out the abundance of the seas, And the hidden treasures of the sand."

Deuteronomy 33:18-19 (NAS)

Everywhere the headlines are replete with prophecy, which are not meant to predict the future, per se, but rather recognize the times you’re in. On this blog I’ve mentioned several prophecies that are to occur during the last times when God’s people Israel are back in the land He promised their forefathers, who all died in faith, looking for the city that is to come (Heb. 11:10, 16).

It seems the discovery of natural gas offshore of Haifa, Israel is not estimated to be in the TRILLIONS of cubic feet! Wow. And many of the gas and oil companies are estimating that there is also a very large store of oil, which seems to make sense of Deut. 33:19.

"It happens all the time," Zeidman said. "We see in the US that the moment a company discovers oil or gas that can be transported, there's a crazy rush to the region by other companies, and that's a function of the size of the reserves found. Around the world, as soon as Noble goes to a place, many other companies follow in its wake. The prospects here are amazing, and I have no doubt that we'll see an economic boom, and a rush of more companies to Israel from overseas following Noble."

Which, this totally makes sense, if there are a vast supply of resources, much like in the early days of North America, when men were discovering the vast, untapped resources, there will be another “gold rush.” And when men and corporations begin to move to Isreal to tap its resources, they will also move their families, start ones, and increase the demand of goods and resources for Israel, bring “the wealth of the nations” to it.

Now I don’t believe that this is the total fulfillment of Is. 60:5, but think it is ultimately fulfilled in the coming of the Messiah, and the establishing of His Millenial reign upon the earth.

22 “I will accomplish it quickly in its time.” Isaiah 60:22 (HCSB)

20 He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming quickly." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. Revelation 22:20 (NAS)

"Choose you this day whom you will serve."  Joshua 24:15

Volcanic Ash Due to UK Cursing Israel?

Genesis 12:3 3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed."

There is one site that has connected the dots in the wake of the volcanic explosion in Iceland:

On April 9th, Britain’s ASA banned an Israeli tourism ad. Soon after this, the Icelandic volcano erupts and the ash in the atmosphere grounds all the flights within the UK and through much of Northern Europe and Russia.

Britain has banned an Israeli Tourism Ministry ad because it “misleads” the public to think that the Western Wall and Temple Mount are part of the country. The publicity was banned by the government advertising regulator.

Britain, like the United States and most of the international community, do not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the parts of Jerusalem that were restored to Jewish sovereignty during the 1967 Six-Day War.

Yahoo News reports that:

Huge ash clouds spewed from the volcano last week and led to European air traffic being grounded for days. The smoke and fumes coming from the volcano have much less ash now and the plume has stayed at low levels.

However, the tremors coming from it are stronger now than when the ash plume was at its highest, at about 9 km (5.6 miles), said meteorological office geophysicist Steinunn Jakobsdottir.

"We don't know exactly what this is telling us. This is kind of telling me that it is not stopping yet ... As it looks now it could go on for a while," she told a news conference.

One thing this IS telling us… God keeps His Word. Psalm 2 tells the rulers of the world that they should cease striving against the ways of God, to “break His fetters,” they should “Worship the Yahweh with reverence and… Kiss the Son, lest He become angry.” For we are left with this warning, “For His wrath may soon be kindled.” (Psalm 2:10-12)

A Call to Final Jihad!

I don’t often approve of all the content or approach of Pamela Geller's take on the news, but she has conservative values and covers stories that I don't see others following. One thing she has been good at is tracking the Islamic advance into the Western world (along with Daniel Pipes, jihadwatch and MEMRI).

Ms. Geller recently posted an article revealing a (quite serious, I believe) call on an Islamic website. It's a call for a Final Jihad: The time seems right. In Iran they have been holding conferences on HOW to hasten the coming of the Madhi, their Twelfth Imam, or savior, which is the equivalent to the Christian Antichrist. Oh, he'll come with a peace plan... after a time of global chaos caused by the masses that are deceived into following this demon called Allah.

The Iranian nuke crisis is coming to a head, with Obama taking an increasingly anti-Semitic stance, and not pushing through against with sanctions (nor actions) against Iran. The Jordanian king recently said that war with Israel is very likely this summer. Turkey has turned from its Western alliances and turned back to alliance with the Ummah (the Islamic brotherhood), especially Iran. Muslims continue to fire rockets into the south of Israel.

It seems a very considerble scenario, when taken into account all prophetic considerations, and current trends in international politics. Maitreya supposedly started his coming out (, as the fulfillment of world religions. A Mr. Raj Patel has come forward with a philosophy of going to a currency-less system of life, and a book titled, The Value of Nothing. A nation wide attack on our major centers of commerce and banking would bring America to a halt, and would enable FEMA and national guard to assume national control. We already live in the U.S.S.A., but it could very soon become a military state. This effectively removes America from the scene of prophecy with regards to the Middle East.

The infighting of America will not be its downfall. A major Muslim attack, carried out in fulfillment of their religious edicts to bring in their Madhi, will be our downfall. Don’t let anyone deceive you. They WILL carry out their religion. Be preparing, we have seen the handwriting on the wall. America’s days are numbered.

20 He who testifies about these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! 21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.

Rev 22:20-21 (HCSB)

If you've never trusted Christ as your Lord and Savior, or maybe you "trusted" Christ, but weren't reborn into a new creature.  Christ died as the atoning sacrifice for you, to forgive your sins and reconcile you to a holy, just, almightly God who created us and made us for His own glory.  Scripture declares that He works all things according to His will, for the praise of His glory.
You need to cry out to Him who has the power to destroy both your soul and body in hell.  Repent of the sins you've committed against Him.  Have you become angry with someone?  Jesus says that you have committed murder in your heart.  Have you ever taken anything that didn't belong to you? Then you're a thief.  Have you ever took the Lord's name in vain?  Then you're a blasphemer.  Do you think that you will go free on the day of judgment, when all mankind has to give an account before their Maker? 

You need to repent of your sins and ask forgiveness, and surrender control of your life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  For one day every knee will bow, and every tongue confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Phil 2:10,11).

Parallel Universe or Astral Projection

I was just reading an article on about scientific evidence for alternate universes, and the old threory that "time travel may be possible." But it seemed the type of time travel they cited, an astronaut aging at 1/48th a second less than us because he's traveling in orbit around the earth. And so the scientists say that he is not "experiencing the same present" as us. Well duh. He's in orbit around earth, and not too many people do that up in the outer limits of our atmosphere. There is no one around him, or maybe his fellow space colleagues. In actuality, it seems that he is experiencing the same present, though it might have a different effect on his body. Any person who is there with him to observe will observe the same phenomenon, "the same present." It's sounds sorta like the age-old question, "If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" If no one is around to observe him, does he really age faster? Okay, I digress.

The real thought that inspired this blog, is that it reminded me somewhat of a study I did of religion preparing to go to Africa. In one book I was reading of African witchcraft, which is really more accurately called Astral-Projection, where your body is one place, but your spirit separates and goes to another place in the world. Some of the scientific claims these physicists were making sounded like they were making claims of a similar sort:

What does it all mean? Let's say you're in Oklahoma visiting your aunt. But in another universe, where your atomic particles just can't keep up, you're actually at home watching "The Simpsons." That may sound far-fetched, but it's based on real science.

"When you observe something in one state, one theory is it split the universe into two parts," Cleland told, trying to explain how there can be multiple universes and we can see only one of them.

So here’s the question: Are these physicists trying to make a legitimate case for astral-projection? One of the world’s most ancient and valued documents tells us “the body without the spirit is dead.” This was penned by one of the half brothers of Jesus of Nazareth, the apostle James (James 2:26). They talk about communicating with and existing within other universes (realms) without knowledge of what is latent within these realms.

It seems that media and those who have power to direct culture are trying to desensitize us toward leaving our bodies, and in past decades there has been a great fascination with 'out of body' experiences. This has been the topic of many a movie. A recent movie where controlling or possessing another body was a prominent theme of the movie is Avatar. Some, like the cult classic Star Wars shows people possessing great abilities and performing super-human feats when they are “possessed” by “the force,” a dualistic power of evil and good, by which you could supposedly harness, though in some instances it appeared to harness the individuals.

Many other books, movies, and even “boardgames,” encourage us to go beyond “this universe” to contact the spirit realm. This practice has been known in Western history and in eastern literature as an occult practice, and it is clearly forbidden in the Bible. The Holy Bible, which gave shape to the once greatest, most free nation on earth teaches that it is appointed once for man to die, then to face judgment (Hebrews 9:27). There is a great movement under way today to unite all the religions of the world, but this is clearly not compatible with the teachings of any of other world religions (Deut. 18:10-12).

The reason this is so within the Bible, is that the LORD reveals to us that all other spirits out there to communicate are angels. Some are sent for good purposes, but others are rebellious to the ways of the Almighty God, and opposed to His purposes. Their intent is to deceive humankind, and to keep them from knowing the truth about God, as revealed in his holy Word (1 Jn 4:1; Gal. 1:6-8; Rev 12:10).

So if it really is near the end, Satan and his angels would be in high-gear working to deceive mankind and lay the groundwork to keep man deceived for when the catching away takes place (1 Thess. 4:16-17). Otherwise, people would realize their mistakes, repent and turn to God to be saved. So all in all, things are right on course.

“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth, for I am God, and there is no other.” (Is. 45:22)

Parallel Universe make way for Astral Projection?

"Billy Graham of Iran" tells of God's miracles in Iran

Remember, Abraham was called out of Ur of the Chaldeans (Babylonia, modern Iraq/Iran). Joel Rosenberg is speaking April 13th in San Jose, Ca with Hormuz Shariot about all that God is doing inside the country of Iran. An excerpt of Joel's interview with Hormuz is really profound, I thought I'd share part of it here.

Rosenberg: Why are so many Iranians renouncing Islam and becoming followers of Jesus?

Shariat: The number one reason is the years of prayers of Christians for the people living in the 10/40 window (Iran is at the center of that window). Another reason is that the true nature of Islam has been revealed to many Iranians. Iran is the only country in the world led by clergy. For 31 years, the people of Iran have experienced the implementation of true Islam. Before 1979, they had a romantic view of Islam. They taught that if Islam ruled in Iran, it would be a paradise on earth. They dreamed that with Islamic government, there would not be any more poverty nor injustice. But after 31 years, they have come to realize that there is something fundamentally wrong with Islam itself. They have realized that Islam has not done anything for them individually, neither for their family, and nor for their society. For 31 years, Islam has been forced on them and yet it has not worked. So in reaction to that, they want freedom, and they do not want Islam.

Rosenberg: What can you tell our readers about your ministry, for those who are not familiar with who you are and what you and your team does?

Shariat: We ourselves at Iran Alive Ministries are Muslim Background Believers who have a passion to reach Iran for Christ. Our track record shows that we have been very effective in brining Iranian Muslims to Christ and planting churches among them. After planting several churches in the USA, we have been using satellite TV to bring hundreds of thousands of Iranian Muslims to Christ and have helped plant house churches among them. By His grace we are equipped and positioned to make a tangible impact for Christ in Iran through satellite TV, Internet, and underground church planting. People who need more information about us can visit our website:

For a really powerful perspective of what God is doing in the walls of Iran, and how you can pray and be part of God's work there, see Rosenberg's blog:

Christians - Living in Slavery

Liberation theology:

Roman Catholic movement that originated in the late 20th century in Latin America and seeks to express religious faith by helping the poor and working for political and social change. It began in 1968, when bishops attending the Latin American Bishops' Conference in Medellín, Colom., affirmed the rights of the poor and asserted that industrialized nations were enriching themselves at the expense of the Third World. The movement's central text, A Theology of Liberation (1971), was written by the Peruvian priest Gustavo Gutiérrez (b. 1928). Liberation theologians have sometimes been criticized as purveyors of Marxism, and the Vatican has sought to curb their influence by appointing more conservative prelates.; accessed April 2, 2010

Scripture seems to make the case that Liberation theology, whose goal is “helping the poor and working for political and social change,” is a little askew. Realistically, there is little in the New Testament about rebelling against or takeover of ungodly governmental systems.

Romans 13:1-2 says “Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.”

What should the Christians’ goal be, living in the midst of an unjust world-system? “ 5 Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ; 6 not by way of eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. 7 With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men, 8 knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free. 9 And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him” (Eph. 6:5-9).

Paul tells us of his Spirit-led approach: 19 For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I may win more. 1 Corinthians 9:19

Why did he make himself a slave? To win more men. Win them to what, a liberated-political system of equality and justice? No. He MADE himself a slave to win people to the gospel of Christ, into freedom from their enslavement to sin. Jesus came the first time, not to set people free from unjust political regimes, which the Jews of ancient (and modern) Israel were (are) looking for. You could say the ancient Jews believed a form of liberation theology. But Jesus said to an unjust ruler, who had power to put him to death or set Him free, “If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm" (John 18:36).

But there is an enslavement that everyone overlooks, an enslavement we’re comfortable with, that goes to the very core of our being. This enslavement the apostle Paul calls an enslavement to sin! He discusses it at length in Romans ch. 6. Here are a few excerpts from that.

Romans 6:4-6, 20-22 6 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life… 6 knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin…

Romans 6:20-22 20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death. 22 But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life.

Paul teaches that the reason we were set free from sin, is to live a life in slavery to God. Are you a Christian? If you truly are, if you’re truly part of His Church, then you live every single day as a slave to the Most High.

The apostle Paul continues this teaching to the Corinthians:

1 Corinthians 7:19-24 19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but what matters is the keeping of the commandments of God. 20 Each man must remain in that condition in which he was called. 21 Were you called while a slave? Do not worry about it; but if you are able also to become free, rather do that. 22 For he who was called in the Lord while a slave, is the Lord's freedman; likewise he who was called while free, is Christ's slave. 23 You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men. 24 Brethren, each one is to remain with God in that condition in which he was called.

Some theology movements teach us that God is all about blessing us, and by the term ‘blessing,’ they mean person financial enrichment or healing. Some of the greatest saints in the Bible “went about din sheepskins, in goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated 38 (men of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes in the ground” (Hebrews 11:37-38).

Some of these religious teachers teach their congregations that God is our servant, to bless our lives and make us happy, healthy and wealthy. They suppose that godliness is a means of gain (1 Timothy 6:5). But God is not about serving us. When a person is crucified with Christ through faith, He sets us free from our sinful nature, not to be recipients of earthly, physical blessings, but to be His slaves. “Having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness” Romans 6:18.

What does this look like, being a slave of righteousness? Let’s look at the final command that our LORD gave us:

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matt 28:18-20 (HCSB)

Nowhere in the New Testament does scripture tell us to advocate for or fight against a particular type of government. We are commanded as New Covenant saints to live our lives in such holiness and separation from the ways of the world, and to teach them all that the Lord has taught us in His holy revealed word.

We are told that the nations will rebel, and mock the holy Lord until the end (Ps. 2; Zech 14). They will try to set up their own system of world-dominion apart from God, much as the time at Babel (Daniel 7:7-8, 19-25, 9:26). But when these things are done, and the gospel has been preached to all the world as a witness to the nations (Mt. 24:14; Mk.13:10), then the Messiah will return and finally judge the unjust peoples on the earth who do not obey the gospel (2 Thess. 2:6-10). After this, He will set up His reign of perfect rule and righteousness on earth.

9 On that day Yahweh will become king over all the earth —Yahweh alone, and His name alone. 10 All the land from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem will be changed into a plain. But [Jerusalem] will be raised up and will remain on its site from the Benjamin Gate to the place of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the royal winepresses. 11 People will live there, and never again will there be a curse of destruction. So Jerusalem will dwell in security. Zech 14:9-11 (HCSB)

So the one who is to change government, and to rule in righteousness, and to set free the oppressed, is Jesus Christ Himself, when He comes in power with His glorious angels and destroys antichrist and the armies of the nations of the world. Some may live to see this day. In fact, at the rate things are going, some people on MyChurch might see that day. When you look at scriptures, and see the rate at which prophecy is being fulfilled, you might say it’s “coming like a flood.”
