Islam Already has Its Destiny in Russia, China - Israel's Destiny on the Other Hand is Biblical

Russia, China, and Israel are now irrevocably intertwined in Biblical destinies in a way that modern humanity seems more and more distanced to. As it is said; "it is written;' the LORD's Holy Hill is in Zion-Israel-that's Israel's destiny.

So, the critic may inquire: what is written (not really wanting to know but looking for a target of argument to satisfy the basis of a countering rationale)?

For a long, long time, Russia has had an interest in the Middle East, inserting the influences of orthodoxy from the times of the Czars to this very moment. Soviet exploits in the region were sublimely present, either in technical intercession or by investments of materiel, Soviet made weaponry dotting the landscape in silent testimony of not faring well against opposing forces. China waits in the wings waiting for its turn.

Quotes of Ezekiel and Joel abound; measured against the backdrop of the books of Daniel, Zephaniah and Zechariah, their spiritual broadcasting of the need for repentance prior to judgment are preparatory to their fulfillment and too few are heeding that call, even in light of the emphasis that Jesus Christ placed upon watching for these times.

It is now apparent that the critical time of the closing ranks of the impending clash are upon the world; and those in the world are faced with making choices never before known in the human scheme of things. The powers that be of the present age are making moves towards the climactic cataclysm and the elements of the church are facing off against the elements of the rising and resurgent forces of Islam; little realizing that as they do so, they are merely bringing about those things spoken of ages ago.

Is there going to be the raging face off that the Islamic revolution seeks? Well, to a point, yes. Yet in the build-up of the Islamic forces preparing to challenge the west to world supremacy a shift of the dynamics is being readied as well. The true church's true power is in its relationship to the Son of Man who is preparing to bring that relationship home to Him, another destiny being fulfilled.

But then there is the apostasy, which feigns its allegiances to the true head of the church, the spirit of which will be left to deal with the world no longer honoring the Spirit of the LORD.

Islamic belief will not be successfully countered in this mortal realm by Biblical Christianity; but Biblical Christianity will successfully extract any who desire to convert from being Muslim and exchanging their Islamic belief for faith in Jesus Christ in order to escape the judgment of a world who rejected the truth of Jesus Christ.

Therein is the basis of the advocacy of believing in Jesus Christ; and let the world, led by Russia, then China, then by the power of the little horn, try dealing with Islam in any way it sees fit. That's the beauty of believing in Jesus Christ an embracing His love, Islam was already conquered by Jesus Christ; all one has to do is believe in Him for its fulfillment.
