Muslim terrorism will never, never end…but I know what’s coming

Published

on

Sunday night (Monday morning, technically) I came home after watching the Houston Astros win Game 5 of the World Series. I live in a gated apartment complex and I pay extra to do so in order to keep riff-raff out. I have a 5 year old son half of the time, who I want protected, and the gates are my first line of defense. There is a strict policy of no tailgating. Each resident is supposed to open the gate on their own and drive through individually. Lately tailgating has become popular and I had had enough that night when a small white car tried to follow me in.

I stopped just inside the gate and waited for the gate to close. This guy (or girl for all I knew at this point) decided to follow close enough to keep the gate from closing. You can debate the merits of my next actions until you’re blue in the face but I got out of my truck and shouted for the other driver to back off and open the gate on their own.

It turned out to be a man in his early 20,s of Middle Eastern origin, with a thick accent; from his clothing and speech almost certainly a Muslim. Now, as anyone who has read my work for any length of time knows, I’m a veteran of Afghanistan, and in my position I have seen some of the most horrific things imaginable at the hands of Muslims, even ones that were supposedly our friends. This has caused me to suffer from PTSD so badly that it cost me jobs, my marriage, and other relationships.

Encountering Middle Eastern people is nothing new in my part of town. They’re at the grocery store in mobs practically, dressed as if they still live wherever they came from. It doesn’t always cause an anxiety attack, but occasionally it does, and when this young man became belligerent I immediately went from mildly annoyed to full-blown Red Alert.

The encounter ended without a physical confrontation as I decided to be the bigger man and retreat. I settled upon contacting management the next day. I spent the entire night awake and ended up not going to work the next day. On Tuesday when I did get to the office I was shaking so badly my boss sent me home after half a day.

Of course, just a few hours later our nation suffered the latest attack by an Islamic militant. And that, dear readers, is why even after all this time I sometimes go to Red Alert when I encounter them.

Question time

Now, is EVERY Muslim that is here a terrorist? No.

But riddle me this: how do you tell the good ones from the bad? It’s certainly not by assimilation. Too many still wear desert garb. We’re not in a desert here. You’re not in your homeland. You left for a reason. Why are you still acting like you are?

Now, let me address the various liberal bleeding heart (and I include here the ridiculous self-righteous libertarian and neocon) arguments right away.

1) Not all Muslims are terrorists.

A: So I’ve already said. But if I handed you 10 Reese’s Pieces and told you 1 was poisoned, how many would you eat?

2) What about the Las Vegas shooter?

A: What about him? We still don’t have a clear motive and ISIS has claimed repeatedly he worked for them. Plus, the idea that we have our own killers here, so we should also let foreign killers in is patently insane.

3) (Insert various racism/Islamophobia crap here because you have no cogent argument.)

A) (Insert something my editor would probably rather I not say.)

The common thread

The fact is: There are many violent attacks in this country that have a common thread. San Bernardino. Orlando. 9-11. Many others. One common thread: Islam.

No, I didn’t say “radical Islam.” I don’t use that phrase. “Radical Islam” is a politically correct phrase designed by liberals so as not to seem “bigoted.”

Here’s my take on any religion: You now tell how devout a member of a religion is by how closely its followers mimic the founder of the religion. Buddhists to Buddha, Christians to Jesus, Muslims to Mohammed.

As a Christian I struggle every day. I WISH most days I was half as much like Christ as ISIS is to Mohammed.

You read that right. ISIS are the ones who imitate Mohammed most closely. They rape. They murder those who aren’t not Muslim, or not Muslim enough. They commit pedophilia. They practice slavery. They conquer. They infiltrate other countries as harmless “refugees” looking for handouts and then gather strength until they can take over. All is in accordance with the practices of Mohammed.

I don’t say things like “believe me” or “let me be clear” or “don’t doubt me.” Do research, REALLY research Mohammed if I don’t believe me. For Christians I highly recommend a book from former PLO terrorist-turned-Christian Walid Shoebat called “God’s War on Terror.” When you read it, keep in mind it was written more than 10 years ago. You’ll be amazed how many predictions in it have already come true.

**Spoiler Alert: Don’t read further if you don’t want to know Mr. Shoebat’s conclusion**

How it ends

The End Times story in the Bible and in Islamic teaching is remarkably similar. Their hero, the 12th Imam or “Mahdi” appears in the Bible as well, just under a different name. We call him the Antichrist.

The Ayatollah is telling his people that the Mahdi is among us now, and he will reveal himself when enough death and destruction has been committed. It doesn’t matter whether or not you believe this to be true. THEY believe it to be true. And this is why Muslims will never, NEVER stop trying to kill us and create mayhem.

“Radical” Muslims try to kill others now. “Moderate” Muslims believe the time to kill Infidels has not yet come, according to Mr. Shoebat. The moderates simply lie and gain entry to our nations to prepare for the day they DO need to attack.

Sorry Mr. President, “extreme vetting” won’t do. Keep them out. I have no illusions that it will stop it forever. God’s ultimate will is unstoppable. But maybe give us some more time to prepare?

And no, liberals, I don’t care what names you call me. I know the truth. You will too some day. THAT you can take to the bank. My PTSD isn’t only POST traumatic stress, but PRE traumatic stress. I know what’s coming. The signs are all there for those wise enough to see it. I don’t fear the eventual outcome. God has that in control. But even Jesus wept on the eve of his pain and suffering, as do I.

The biggest threat to Christians is the teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture

The biggest threat to Christians is the teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture

In many scriptures of the Bible, there is a “falling away” or discussion of great deceptions that are coming to the world. It has been hard for believers in Christ to comprehend the possibility of the masses falling away from Christianity because faith has been a powerful part of society for nearly two millenniums, but we are seeing it today. Moreover, we are seeing the spreading of a seed that will cause further apostasy among believers in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior: the myth of a pre-tribulation rapture.

Most who have gone to church in the last hundred years have likely considered the possibility at the very least that the rapture of the church will occur before the tribulation that is spoken of in many books of the Bible, including the Book of Revelation. Some estimates put it at 90% of the Christian church believes in a pre-tribulation rapture. The vast majority of popular churches teach that believers will be called up to Heaven before the tribulation. Simply stated, the Bible does not support this claim.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Jesus will come in the clouds and call up those who are believers. This will not happen prior to the tribulation. The sun and moon will be darkened, and then He shall return. The majority of churches that teach Imminency, the concept that Jesus will return at any moment and His people will be raptured at that time, point to one verse to counter the argument of signs that will precede His second coming:

Matthew 24:36

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

This is obviously a true statement. It is also one that is completely misunderstood. The fact that we nor anyone else can know the day or the hour does not mean that He can come at any time. Throughout the Gospels and the writings of Paul, we hear of things that must happen before His return. It is not for us to know the day or the hour, but the season will make itself very evident. We will see certain events occur. One of those series of events are known as the Great Tribulation.

Why it is believed

The simply answer when asking why so many people, even “educated” church leaders, is that we want to believe it. It’s human nature to want to avoid persecution, war, sickness, and beheadings, all of which are spoken of as parts of the tribulation. If someone of authority tells us that we will not have to go through these things as long as we believe, it’s a message that can resonate. Those who hear the truth, that we may be living in the end times and that as a result many of us will go through great suffering due to our faith – it’s just not as positive of a message.

The not-so-simple answer is that Satan is pushing this as part of his agenda. It is Satan that rules the earth. His goal is to pull as many people away from the faith as possible, which is why he and his minions began deceiving Christians at their core starting in the early 19th century with the doctrine of a pre-tribulation rapture. He has brought about and continues to bring about waves of deceptions to pull people away from even considering the Word of the Bible, but this particular deception is to attack those who are wanting to be strong in their faith. It’s designed to shake the spirits of the believers to the point of non-belief.

Think about it. If you make people believe that they are not going to face suffering, that they are “special” and will avoid all of the troubles that will engulf the world, then they are weakened as a result. They will not be ready. When the tribulation does begin and they’re still on this planet going through it, they will begin to question their own faith. They will not be prepared to fight against persecution. They will be more willing to be deceived in order to save their lives. They will be more open to deceptions of the Anti-Christ. They will be more likely to worship the false messiah to take his mark in order to buy and sell. They will see the formation of the one world government, the one world economy, and the single world leader and they will do so more willingly than those who have their eyes open.

This is arguably the greatest deception that Satan has pulled off thus far.

Why churches teach it

Building a church is not as black and white for most as it is for others. It’s much easier to build one with a happy message than to try to build one through promises of fire and brimstone, persecution and suffering. There are those sitting in the seats of church leadership who realize that a pre-tribulation rapture is not correct but they continue to preach it in fear that their congregation will shrink or disappear altogether if they go against the grain.

As with any man-made organization, the Christian church world has a “club” among the leaders. There are those who are in the club and those who are not in the club. Those who are in the club are able to speak at events, sell books, build up an online following, and prosper as a church. Those who are not in the club have a much harder time finding relevance in this world. Today, the club is made up of pre-tribulation rapture teachers. If you’re not preaching a pre-tribulation rapture, you can’t be in the club.

It’s a catch-22 for many. Not all do it because of ignorance or greed. There are those who teach it because they feel that a message that can resonate with more people is better than a message that alienates many. In other words, they realize that they are not teaching this particular issue properly but if they can misinterpret this one little point, they’ll be able to get the other important messages out to more people. It’s a misguided attempt at an honorable sentiment that is actually more dangerous than not reaching the people at all. We believe there is a likelihood that many people will fall away in the last days, but others will open their eyes as well. If they open their eyes and start reading the Bible, they will see what they had missed their whole lives and will have an opportunity to head down the right path before it’s too late. If, however, they are weakened by expectations of a pre-tribulation rapture, it will be more difficult to bring them back to the truth.

Debating the Issue

It is sad when I read some of the assertions of those who continue to fight the truth of post-tribulation rapture. They are often excellent writers or orators fighting from a misguided perspective. For example, in the book Triumphant Return by Grant Jeffrey, he states:

Several incorrect premises have caused some to reject the pretribulation Rapture and accept the position called the “postribulation Rapture.” The first premise is an emotional contention that it would be unfair for the modern Church to escape to heaven scot free to escape the martyrdom that other believers have experienced.

In all of our studies of those promoting a post-tribulation rapture, I have never heard this premise before. It’s appalling that Jeffrey would lead with such a poor premise, as if trying to mislead the readers into believing that the post-tribulation doctrine is so weak that those who believe in it are emotional and ignorant simpletons.  Below, you will see videos of people who have formed their doctrine based solely on the Word of the Bible, who make it crystal clear that a post-tribulation rapture is without a doubt the reality, and that the theory of a pre-tribulation rapture is damaging to those to which it is taught.

The Words of Jesus Christ should be the resounding end of any debate that He will return before the tribulation:

Matthew 24:29-31

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

There are other verses that also make it clear, but this is obviously the most specific. There are those who will say this is referring only to the Jews. There are those who will use charts and graphs to convince you of a pre-tribulation rapture. They will point to interpretations by Darby, Ephraem the Syrian, and Scofield as proof. Do not be misled.

Rather than point to the evidence or attempt to debate the concept, I will defer to a few people who have done more research on the subject than me. Please take the time to watch these videos and share this article. It’s important that believers are prepared for what’s to come. Whether it’s today or in a thousand years, we cannot allow people to be guided down a path that can lead them to be part of the falling away the Jesus spoke of in His ministry. We must open our eyes, see the truth, and spread it to all that we can.

AOC says 2/3rds of Democrats have ‘social intelligence of a sea sponge’ for believing her 12-year apocalyptic claims

Published

AOC says 23rds of Democrats have social intelligence of a sea sponge for believing her 12-year apoca

On May 12, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said anyone who took her literally about the world ending in 12 years over climate change would “have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge.” A new survey by Rasmussen indicates most Democrats have such social intelligence. They took her literally, and therefore they all possess sea-sponge-intellects, according to their young cult leader.

67% of Democrats believe the United States has only 12 years to aggressively fight climate change or else there will be disastrous and irreparable damage to the country and the world.

This is the problem with radical progressive politicians like AOC. She mixes hyperbole with her actual feelings and doesn’t give indications as to when she’s being literal and when she’s using “dry humor + sarcasm.” But if you listen to one of the many instances where she makes the claim about 12-years-until-apocalypse, she seems deadly serious.

She’s not the biggest problem, though. The real problems are the millions of sheep who follow here without question, who believe everything she says and support everything she does. The left often argues that President Trump’s most passionate followers are like a cult, but even the President’s supporters aren’t as dedicated when it comes to taking him literally as AOC’s cult following is with her claims. The response to Trump’s actions and statements are supported but measured. Moreover, I’ve seen (and participated in) plenty of pushback against some of his policies from tariffs to firearm restrictions to dealing with North Korea.

We hear fairly regularly about pushback from prominent conservatives, and oftentimes the President takes this pushback into account when making decisions. But with AOC, the only occasional pushback comes from the Democratic establishment as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi or other old school Democrats jab at AOC a bit. Otherwise, she’s unabated in her rhetoric and unchecked in her actions.

Here’s the sad part. If you were to tell AOC’s followers they were sea sponges for taking her literally, they’d scream at you. But if you showed them that SHE called them sea sponges, they’d nod and say, “Oh, if AOC said it, I must be a sea sponge.”

Liz Wheeler to Catholic girls: ‘Stop pretending you’re a victim because you broke the rules and rolled up your skirt’

Liz Wheeler to Catholic girls Stop pretending youre a victim because you broke the rules and rolled

Students at Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego are protesting their dress code. This isn’t an uncommon occurrence; there have been plenty of protests over the years, especially by feminists, in opposition to school dress codes that require girls to wear skirts. But this protest is different. The students are protesting because girls are no longer allowed to wear skirts.

Principal Kevin Calkin, the principal at Cathedral Catholic High School, changed the dress code in the most recent iteration of policy. Now, it states: “The most significant change is that skirts will no longer be an option for girls. Dress code is a perennial challenge. The dress code exists for at least three good reasons: to foster unity, to encourage modesty, and to minimize pressure to conform to particular styles or clothing brands. Basically we hope to foster a faith-based environment where students are focused on learning and not on outward appearances.”

But students brought signs and demanded the old policy be put back in place. Signs had various messages from “My body, my choice” to “Even Jesus wore one.”

The policy was put into place after the principal and others on staff had handed out “hundreds of hours of detention” to girls who would break the knee-length minimum for skirts, especially by rolling up their skirts to reveal more of their lower bodies.

One America News host Liz Wheeler lambasted the students, who apparently can’t tell the difference between rights and privileges. Only in America can students feel so victimized because they can’t wear skirts to school.
