Resistence Requires Power of the Truth - The Truth the World Resists

Reader comment on item: Will Europe Resist Islamization?

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Apr 3, 2008 at 13:24

We read here of a reasonable request for an honest debate to determine, let us phrase it this way, the viability of the ideology called Islamism, rooted within the religious framework of Islam. Variously, there has been debate in forums across the world as well as here, and the result is that Islam has been found to be, from its very inception, an ideology rooted in its stated religious imperative to replace all other religious beliefs, from the Romanized Christianity and Judaism contemporary with its beginnings, to the other belief systems found along the way of the original conquests. There is no true debate with the ideology that is Islam, only controversy and confrontation.

The time of the crusades focused on the confrontation of Islam and Roman Christianity in the Holy Land, attempting to assert and reassert one ideology over the other, both however exemplifying the Biblical pronouncement of Daniel that the land of the Hebrews would suffer the ‘times of the gentiles,' a situation that is persistent today.

That there are still Islamic influences in Europe should be no surprise to anyone, given that the Muslim conquest of portions of Europe still have their marks left behind, such as in Spain and elsewhere, and strangely, in the use of the common numerals. In fact there are many things in common with the vestiges of the first conquest, that the mindset of the followers of the Islamic Prophet is that once Islamic, always Islamic; and re-entering Europe is a matter of re-establishing what they had there before, and to expand from there. How does Europe resist that?

If one were to read the Hebrew Holy Scriptures with this in mind, we find that the Christian following today has splintered, not merely denominationally, but in the adherence to the central truths of the Holy Bible. It is found that what is called mainstream Christianity has strayed by following the dictates of men in religious observances without seeking and following the Holy Spirit for the power that is available to true Christians. Without that power, without the true faith that is fundamental to accessing that power, there is not a real way to resist the influences that would beset any person, indeed, no power for a society to deal with the onslaught sent specifically to sift the faithful from the rest.

Those faithful to the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and are found in His love will be able to call upon Him in these troubling times and find that strength to resist. Otherwise, the resistance that one might hope for against the increasing influx of non-Christian empathies is not going to last for long, and acquiescence, such as we are seeing Europe and elsewhere as this is being written, will be the course many will follow.

It is supposed then, as we see that the world is in the times Biblically described by the Hebrew prophets, that Islam is the contravening power written of in Biblical fashion as we ponder possibly how the world unites against the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and how mystery Babylon is destroyed. Then the world is prepared for the return of the Anointed One of Israel, HaMashiach, ben David to His throne in Jerusalem.

Indeed, will the world, not just Europe, be able to resist Islam and the hordes promised by the imams streaming across vast territories to conquer(a mosque in the White House might be difficult, since it does not face Mecca), spreading shari'a, (as it is already being proposed), bringing all (we read where Christianity is already in the minority in the world) into conformance with the Quran?

The Quran does not answer that question, but the Hebrew Holy Scriptures, the Holy Bible does. Trust in the LORD Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach as it is written in the Holy Bible, and He provides all the answers one needs for these times; indeed He provides the power for all who believe to see His truth in all that is going to happen.
