in response to reader comment: Prophet...

Yasmeen tells us Mohammad was a prophet. Please tell us, then, ONE thing that Mohammad prophesied which came true.

Would that be his prophecy that, after his death, Islam would rule the world for 100 years? Hello! It didn't happen! So, as that never happened, let's have another single instance of a fulfilled prophecy by Mohammad.

Not possible, is it?

Now look at the hundreds of Bible prophecies that have come true!

For instance, we can go into the Jews and Israel alone regarding Bible prophecies: How their land would lie desolate for centuries and how the Jews would return to their land and God would make a nation of them in a single DAY. How they would have a mighty army that would keep defeating their enemies [Ezekiel 37:1-14].

(And the Israeli army is one of the greatest and most powerful in the world. That alone is proof of prophecy. Who'd have believed that people who had never been fighters for 2000 years would end with armed forces second to none? It was prophesied by Ezekiel hundreds of years before the diaspora.)

Every nation that has turned against Israel has been in big trouble, as the Bible prophesied would happen to such nations. My native Britain was one of the first, staffing Arab armies with our officers and sending Jews fleeing from Nazi Europe back to the lands where they were persecuted. Within less than twenty years, the nation which boasted it had an Empire on which the sun never set was a 10th-rate nation, known as the sick man of Europe. Now we are lucky if we are a 55th-rate nation.

Look at the US and what happened immediately after they ordered Israel to release Arab psychopaths from their jails. Their Moslem leader flew a plane into one of the two towers. And the curses that followed that massacre is that the US herself is being accused of it being an inside job--by US citizens!

The US, like Britain and Israel's other enemies, have never learnt: When America ordered Israelis to leave their homes and hand their houses and lands built by Jewish sweat and labour over to the Edomites ("Palestinians"--the true Palestinians were from Lebanon), within twenty-four hours New Orleans was hit by a tidal wave which left thousands of US citizens homeless.

Every time the US sticks its nose into Israel's affairs they end up in trouble. Look at the amount of natural disasters and economic woes which have hit America since then. America is not listening.

Japan then got on Israel's case, accusing Israel of mistreating the "Palestinians" (and if the Japanese had done their homework they'd have realized who was actually mistreating who) and they decided to boycott Israeli goods. Then hours after that decision they were hit with a tsunami that reduced much of their land to rubble and left many of their people dead.

A few weeks ago the Norwegian Left were indoctrinating their children, at an island camp, to prepare for demonstrations across their nation against Israel and in support of the so-called Palestinians (who commit crimes against their own children by training them to be suicide bombers). Ironically, a fascist Norwegian, killed many of these Norwegian youth. He wasn't even a supporter of Israel. He simply hated the lefties.

You want proof of prophecy, the Bible's full of it. Look at how anti-Semitic nations have suffered! Look at the mess Russia has been in for centuries, under despotic tsars and then Stalinists. Look at what happened to Germany after Word War II. Look at the Arab worid particularly and the Moslem world generally with their totalitarian states and misogynistic and homophobic regimes! And right now! It's hardly rocket science.

The Bible is full of warnings against those who cross Israel and how those who bless them will be blessed [e.g., Genesis 12:2-3] and how those who attack Israel will be attacked--their enemies would attack each other. Note the Arab/Moslem world--past, present and, you can be sure, future.

American Christian writers like Dave Hunt (see his book Judgment Day) and David Brennan (see his book, The Israel Omen) give instance after instance of these prophecies being fulfilled.

The Bible is full of prophecies regarding how Israel's enemies will come against her and malign her. God prophesied, from her beginning millenia ago, that she would never cease to be a nation in His sight [Jeremiah 31:36] and also that the other nations would not recognise her [Numbers 23:9] and numbers, remember, was written by Moses! Yes, Bible prophecies go that far back.

When Frederick the Great was on his deathbed he asked for a minister. When the latter, Zindendorff, appeared Frederick asked him to prove that there was a God. He told Zindendorff he could only give him two hours. The clergyman replied, "Sire, I don't need two hours, I can prove it in two words."

When the King asked him how, Zindendorff replied, "The Jews."

And that was with the Bible knowledge he had of the Jews PRIOR to them being back in their land--which Bible believing Christians THEN knew had to yet happen--because the Bible had clearly fortold it would happen.

Bill Salus wrote a book called Isralestine three or four years ago. He showed from the Bible how the Arabs were planning to form a confederacy against Israel. He got it from the Psalm 83 prophecy. What has happened since his book was published is as he said would happen.

We had the Gaza debacle. That was followed by the "Arab Spring"--according to the media. The Arab Spring turned out to be, as the Bible prophecies warned, an Arab fiasco. The Arabs are fighting with Arabs! There are enough of them to march across Israel. Logically that is. But Bible prophecy tells us--contradicting everything logic and our senses dictate--that the Arabs will never be able to do it.

For one thing, the Bible's earliest prophecy about these Ishmaelites is telling: "He shall be a wild man; his hand will be against every man and every man's hand shall be against him" [Gen 16:12]. It seems that our episcopalians and ecumenists are as oblivious to Bible prophecy as are the Moslems!

Yasmeen, and folk of the same paradigm, have to be careful when they make statements about prophecy. Our Jewish-Christian Bible is full of them by prophets God chose from the Jewish people to warn us. As BIll Salus and other writers have shown, these prophecies are coming to pass before our eyes. And this is only regarding the Jews and Israel. We have many others, including the present apostacy of the church, and regarding Islam and Islamic nations and the pagan nations.

It's all there. So if Yasmeen and others want real prophesy they will find it in the Bible because only the Bible has prophecies which have come true and and still being fulfilled.

The idea of Mohammad being a prophet will only make us either laugh or feel sorry for those poor people who believe such an idea.
