'Kafir' Scholarship Not Necessary if One Holds to the Truth in the Hebrew Holy Bible

in response to reader comment: Kafir Scholar

It does not take a scholar to see the turmoil the world is in, or the catastrophic course set out for the destruction of the earth on a global scale. What was proffered in Dr. Pipes article is that, as correctly observed in the resurgence of fundamental Islam in Turkey (no matter the moderate perspective that has tried to get Turkey into the EU), the Middle East has come to a crossroads in the collective search for a society based on a common mindset, ostensibly to have a means to pursue a Muslim's search for his inclusion into the fabric of Islam. Does implementing shari'a law accomplish that? It remains to be seen.

We have read that the Iranians and the Saudi's are trading epithets (maybe a too strong term-let's use threats instead), for their polar ideas on whether shiia or sunni Islam is the preferred means to honor the words of the Islamic Prophet. Iran is using 'rebel' shiia militants to gain footholds in Saudi areas of influence, and they (the Saudi's) have taken exception. What that points to is the variance of mindsets that have plagued Islam from the time of the succession until now as to whom the modern Muslim should follow.

If Islam is gaining footholds in non-Muslim countries, it is because those countries do not have the necessary resolve of Biblical truth for understanding the Truth to deflect the incursion, and that means pretty much in a global sense: no country, save possibly Israel, is able. There is no arguing that the Muslim demographics are increasing, just as the writer Dawud infers. He further calls it progress as the influx continues; and it is this reader's conclusion it will continue, in some places more slowly than others. But continue it will until it reaches maximum intensity, just before implosion.

If one wonders why a Holy Bible believing, faithful disciple of Yeshua HaMashiach - trusting in His WORD for everything about to happen-can make such assertions, then understand this. EVERYTHING that has happened in this world from before in eternity to beyond the end of this mortal realm, is contained in the WORD of the LORD, and even brackets every word found in the dictated Quran.

Turkey's shift to a more fundamental Islamic posture in the Middle East was/is necessary to conform to the alliances necessary for the Muslim community to do battle with the Western sensibilities of the post Christian mentalities as prescribed in the Hebrew Holy Bible. It is a fact of prophetic proportions, and a fait accompli in the eternal scheme of things. If one has doubts, try, as anyone might, to describe how the Ottoman Empire lost the Muslim hold on Jerusalem, and how further, that Israel was re-established against all Arab/Muslim antipathies, objections and efforts, and why the world cannot seem to get its act together to counter the Biblical course Israel is destined to follow.

It is then suggested that if one desire to follow Islam, to try and dismiss the Truth of Yeshua HaMashiach in the Hebrew Holy Bible as the Islamic Prophet intended by his unbelieving portrayal of who Yeshua is, then remember this. When the time approaches to recognize who Yeshua HaMashiach really is, know that it is likely too late to do so when He is seen entering Jerusalem and one has not already made a confession of faith in Him by believing the Hebrew Holy Bible now, when you now have a chance. Then a Jizya payment is not necessary when Yeshua has already paid your sin debt in His blood and the redeemed life in Him, by His love, mercy, and grace, is so guaranteed.
