Thankyou, spa. I'm not fooled by Mansoor - he's like a little dog that keeps yapping.

Actually, Ezekiel 38 is speaking about Armageddon. At the end of the Tribulation, a time period of seven years, which will occur after the Rapture of the Church, Israel will be the focal point of the last, most terryfying conflict the world has ever seen. Because of the unique promises of God to Israel, Satan has sponsored hostility toward the Jew throughout history. In a final desperate act of wrath, Satan brings together four great, satanically-inspired gentile empires to annihilate this tiny nation. Israel is surrounded, cut off, caught in a hopeless military situation by these vast armies.

The Jews have only one salvation. Their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, will return to earth to fight for them. In triumph He will defeat the forces arrayed against Israel, remove Satan as ruler of this world - literally send him to Hell - and the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ, will then establish His millenial kingdom, and fulfill His covenants with Israel. The last verse in Ezekiel 38 - "I will magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the site of many nations; and they will know that I am the LORD."

Yes, Islam has taken many pieces of the Bible and twisted them - Adam and Eve were created by God, but Eve was created separate, not from Adam's rib. Abraham was the father of Ishmael, but Ishmael was a prince, and Haggar a princess, not that Ishmael was a bastard son of Sara's slave/servant Haggar (Abraham was the father). And the absolute worst, that Jesus existed, but he was not the Son of God, just a prophet, and he was "replaced" on the Cross.

If Mansoor reads this post, I have a message for him, and a verse - "I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book (the Bible): if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophesy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book." - Revelation 22:18-19

I can hear Mansoor now........yap-yap-yap-yap-yap......
