Sharia Law may be coming to a neighborhood near you, but in the larger picture, but an ancient prophecy about “the time of the end” is half-fulfilled and offers promise of neutralizing militant Muslims. In a vision the mentions the Medes and Persians conquered by Alexander the Great, Gabriel told Daniel the vision is “at the time of the end” and Iraq (Medes) have already been defeated.
“The jolting message contained in ‘No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You,’ is one of warning for America, which is in the process of building up its own no-go zones by making the same immigration mistakes now on full display in Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.” WND.com
Those countries have almost daily attacks with knives or vehicles while Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic rarely have them—they barred their doors to Muslim immigration. The Bible would warn us…
1.8 billion Muslims claim Abraham as their patriarch and they celebrate Al-Adha, a ram sacrifice because Ishmael was spared when Abraham sacrificed a ram caught in a thicket.
The Bible has the same story, but that it was Isaac who was spared in Genesis 22. Which is the true holy book? Daniel 8 offers a convincing picture that the God of the Bible “declares the end from the beginning,” Isaiah 46. Please consider how!
Daniel saw a vision of a ram pushing north, west and south from the River Ulai. Reference librarians say that’s now called the Karun River by Kuwait where US troops deployed against Saddam. In Daniel 8, a ram angers a goat that flies from the west to stomp the ram, breaking its horns…it was the end of the ram.
To understand this better, one needs to remember the biblical account that Ishmael was the result of Abraham not trusting God’s promise to make him a great nation when he was childless and Sarah was near 90. So Sarah gave Abraham her handmaid to help fulfill God’s promise.
Does God need our help? Not if it means breaking His law to do it. Ishmael was not the son of promise, but Isaac was the focus of jealousy by Ishmael, and it’s still true as militant Islam now wants to drive Israel (the son of Isaac was Israel after his name changed) into the sea.
To spare Isaac/Israel, Daniel 8 suggests that God is going to sacrifice a militant Muslim ram. The horns on the ram are the kings of “Media and Persia” (verse 20). Those horns were broken by Alexander the Great (verse 21), but “the vision is at the time of the end” (verse 17).
That vision is half fulfilled by the death of Saddam as a US coalition flew from the west to break the first horn on the ram. Persia (Iran) will be the biblical focus of war for “the time of the end,” not North Korea, etc.
So does God hate Muslims? No, He loves them, but He loves Israel as well, and He will sacrifice a militant ram that can’t be satisfied with its share of the Middle East. Greed is a bad thing.
Islam may wonder why God would allow “the Great Satan to conquer them when the US brought them alcohol, tobacco, drugs, Hollywood, crime, sex and violence on TV. These are things that the Bible condemns, but they think this is Christianity.
Daniel 8 is not about who God favors to win, but who that He sees will win. America will have its own time of judgment soon enough. After a military victory, the US’ “horn” gets broken, verse 8.
On the positive side, Christianity teaches our duty to love our neighbor–others who need our help–treating them as we would want if we were in their situation. More than any other religion, Christianity has elevated women towards equality in society above the abuse that is seen in so many nations.
