Further Contemplation on Prophetic Implication of 'Messianic' Movement

Reader comment on item: Iran's Christian Boom

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jul 1, 2021 at 16:20

Elsewhere in the forum there had been discussions of Muslims leaving the more stringent adherence to Quranic directives within the Islamic community, even to the recognition of the consequences meted out to the 'apostates' if they are caught in such 'disobedience;' how much more so are the consequences if being found in a state of salvation of the hope in the cross and resurrection of Yeshua (Issa), Jesus Christ of the Messianic and Christian persuasion in a recall of first century confessions of just that same faith.
Islam in its initial takeover of the Persian realms just a few hundreds years after the message of the cross and the Jewish Savior, by then having the Jewish identity covered over by a decidedly non-Jewish persuasion, is actually prophesied in both the Tanakh and the Brit Chadashah.
What does that mean in the more modern context of the battle of Western 'Christian' values versus the Oriental messaging of Christianity? In deeper reading of the Scriptures of both Covenants; much.
So much so, it bears noting that the religious persecution that pursues these believers in the Messiah is a tell that makes certain sense as to why the Iranian Islamic Regime seeks a more hardline attitude within the former Persian realms and their projection of the desired power being brought to bear as they follow the 'plan' to overtake the Middle East with foreign (read post Roman) interventions of influences.
More Eastern influences will come later.
In short, the Messiah predicted these times; that is what is written; that is what is being seen today.
