The Final Battle is Approaching

Get ready for the great battle to end all battles on earth. Why? Because almost a hundred million Muslims believe in it and are determined to make it happen. They have chosen us as mortal enemies, and there's nowhere we can run to. This final battle is the primary goal of ISIS right now, and the most active opposition to ISIS is the soon-to-be nuclear Iran, which will use atomic weapons to destroy ISIS, and Israel while they're at it. They've announced it publicly. Ironically, the Shi-ite Muslims who control Iran, and the Sunnis - who are the majority of the Muslim world - have been mortal enemies since the mid 600's A.D. But both believe they alone will be saved by the Mahdi, the so-called Twelfth Imam (their version of Jesus Christ) on the Last Day.

Death means nothing to them, nor suffering, nor hardship. They believe that the more bloody mayhem, mass murder, and destruction they can create, the sooner their Twelfth Imam Savior will appear. Muslim Pakistan already has nuclear weapons, and other Arab countries are actively seeking them.

For over a century things have not been going well for Muslims, and it turns out that they have an ancient and rock-solid belief in their own version of the Second Coming. They believe the Christian version of Jesus returning is actually the work of Satan; and their own Savior, the Mahdi, will come down from heaven and create paradise on earth. He will battle Judeo-Christians and other 'infidels' , defeat them, and cast all who disagree with him into eternal Hellfire.

This article by Graeme Wood in The Atlantic, a sober and well-respected magazine, spells out the religious motivations behind ISIS and other Muslim extremist groups:

These present-day events were prophesied almost two-thousand-years ago by St. John of Patmos, a 92 year-old prisoner-exile of the Romans. We should celebrate, for we will see things no people of any age have ever seen. The reward for us will be too astonishing to describe.

St. John's prophesies make up the last chapter of the Bible, known as Revelation. It describes the long process God initiates before, during, and after the Day of Judgment, the last acts of God to redeem the souls of the righteous throughout all of history. It's written in a kind of metaphorical code, using many strange and even bizarre images mixed in with familiar ones such as Christ, his Bride, the Saints, and Holy Angels. Satanic monsters, terrible plagues, and mass deaths become routine in Revelation. The goodness of God seems to come into question, so it's a challenge for any religious authority to explain it. However, when we look back at world history since 1900, it isn't so hard to understand.

More than 100 million people died in wars, persecutions, famines, and biological plagues since 1900. Over a billion people were injured, both physically and mentally, from their proximity to these catastrophes. In addition, their descendants, you and me, have been impacted and hurt by what our ancestors experienced. So it's pretty easy to make the case that the Apocalypse and Armageddon - as described in Revelation - have been a part of human life for over a hundred years.

WWI, which began in August 1914, transformed the globe and brought us communism, police states, state-sanctioned mass murder, and high technology. All of which has spawned mass atheism, anti-theism, and their opposites, fanatical religions of the most ruthless kind.

Time is extremely short. Say a prayer. Make it a big prayer.

11th Century Christians riding out to battle

The War On Christians and Jews

All over the Middle East and North Africa, Christians are being exterminated by radicalized Muslims:  Watch this to find out...

Very few 21st Century leaders and educators foresaw the rise of Islamic fundamentalism. Or the re-establishment of ancient Sharia Law. Or the murderous quest by ISIS and al-Qaeda to found a "New Caliphate", a new nation of Islam which they promise will come to dominate the entire world. They openly state that all "infidels" - not just Christians, Jews Buddhists, or Hindus - but all Muslims who disagree with their particular and vicious brand of Islam will be killed off. They point to passages in the Koran, and specific texts in the Hadith, which justify mass murder.

It has been fashionable, globally, to attack Christianity for at least sixty years. In the West it has been fashionable to be almost anything but a Christian. The most fashionable religions have been eastern, and Indian gurus, swamis, and yoga practitioners have made excellent livings in the West. There was much of value that they had to give.

Buddhism too has been fashionable since the Dalai Lama was forced by the Chinese to flee Tibet. He is an exemplary man in many ways, and the nonviolence he has always preached has generated comparisons of him to Jesus.

After the Second World War, Jews received a lot of support and encouragement as they established the nation of Israel; and as the full horror of Nazi terror unfolded, millions of non-Jews wept with them.  Recently this trend has reversed itself, and Jews are once again fleeing Europe and the Middle East to live in Israel. The rise of Islamic radicalism has returned Europe to similar conditions that applied in the 1930's during Hitler's rise.

Marxist-Socialism is also ascendent again. In the 1990's, as Marxism collapsed globally with the Soviet Union and Red China, the world seemed to awaken from the nightmare of collectivism. There was a wave of prosperity that seemed unstoppable as the forces of free market economics worked their magic. Sure, there were exceptions, but just as China burst forth as an economic powerhouse, so did many other countries.

Now those terrible lessons of totalitarianism and tyranny have been forgotten, and we're spiraling into hell again. Our personal freedoms are being killed off, and we are next. This is what happens when nations turn away from, and go to war against, the God of All Creation, visible and invisible.
