(The Holy Kaaba Shrine in Mecca, Saudi Arabia)
The Roots of Islam are Pagan
The roots of Islam spring from Mecca in a black stone called the Kaabah. The Koran states Abraham was the builder of this shrine, which by very definition has to be an absolute lie, as in no way would Abraham ever build an alter to pagan gods! History records that the Kaabah in Mecca was an ancient pagan shrine, which predated Muhammad by many centuries. The merchants of Mecca rejected Muhammad and his new religion for the simple reason that he preached monotheism, whereas they worshipped a multitude of gods. It was Muhammad’s belief in the ONE god, which the pagan souvenir merchants of Mecca objected to, as it interfered with their lucrative tourist trade. Their shrine, the Kaaba, was the home of 360 jinn’s, demon spirits or genies, one of whom was called Allah.
The worship of Allah has its roots in astrology and witchcraft involving worship of the sun, the moon and the stars. In the Arabia of that time the sun god was considered to be a female god, whereas the male god was the moon. It was this moon god they called Allah. Thus we see the crescent moon has become the foremost Islamic symbol, and to this day it is featured on nearly every Arab flag. This same symbol of the crescent moon representing Allah is affixed to the roofs and pinnacles of every mosque in the world. This fact is actually highly ironic in that the Koran, the Holy Book of Islam emphatically forbids the worship of the moon! I Quote:
“Among the signs of his power are the night and the day, the sun and the moon. Worship not the sun, neither the moon: but worship God, who hath created them.”
(The Koran: Chapter XLI)
Therefore, we have a serious contradiction here, as Islam in idolizing the crescent moon on their flags and mosques is in effect going diametrically against the instruction of the Koran, their own holy writ.
The Tanach/Old Testament makes it plain that:
“Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft!”
(1 Samuel 15:23)
Islam, as we have established above has its origins in witchcraft and astrology with its worship of Allah, the moon god. Furthermore, Islam also epitomises “double rebellion,” in that it defies the ordained order of YHVH, the true Creator of Heaven and Earth. God said to Abraham: “In Isaac shall your seed be called!” (Genesis 21:12c). The Scriptures make it abundantly clear that the Covenant God made with Abraham, would be fulfilled through his descendants Isaac, Jacob, and Jacob’s twelve tribal sons. Jacob’s name was subsequently changed to Israel:
“And He said, ‘Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed.’ ”
Ishmael, under the influence of his mother Hagar, developed a ‘root of bitterness’ at being passed over by G-d in favour of his younger brother Isaac. As this bitterness festered it was passed through Ishmaels genes to all of his descendants. The interesting part is that Abraham is greatly revered in the Koran, as the father of the Arab nation. However, this cannot be said about the God of Abraham. They remember how Abraham cherished his son Ishmael even to the point where he spoke up for him before his God: “And Abraham said to God, ‘Oh, that Ishmael might live before you!’ ” Ishmael remembers only too well the reply that was given:
“Then God said: ‘No Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him,’ ”
You see from the very Scriptures how Abraham would have been quite happy for the covenant to pass through his son Ishmael. Yet, YHVH, the Elohim of Israel, ruled otherwise. He heard and respected Abraham’s request, he pronounced great blessings upon Ishmael, but His covenant He established with Isaac, at a time when he was yet to be born. Can you imagine what effect this had upon the mind of Ishmael and his descendants? Can you imagine the envy and anger in Hagar’s mind? Her relationship with Sarah, Abraham’s wife had never been that good anyway, especially since the birth of Ishmael. Now, here the God of Abraham prefers a son that is not as yet even born above her beloved Ishmael. We must not forget that Hagar was a princess of the blood royal of Egypt, and therefore succession and inheritance were of paramount importance to her. Surely it is Ishmael who should inherit? Was he not the firstborn after all? It is not difficult to imagine what must have gone through her mind when she learned that her son was to be passed over. Until this pronouncement by the God of Abraham, it was understood by everyone including Abraham, Sarah, Hagar, and indeed by Ishmael himself, that Ishmael was the one and only heir to Abraham’s estate. Right up to his age of twelve Ishmael had been treated as the heir apparent by his father Abraham and consequently by all the servants of this great household, including all of the herdsmen in the field. To Hagar’s mind a great injustice was being done here to her beloved Ishmael.
Thus Ishmael, the ancestor of the Arab nations remembered all too well that it was the God of Abraham, who had rejected him and denied him the inheritance he was led to expect for most of his young life. Instead, the way he saw it; he was being sent into the wilderness with Hagar his mother, both of them empty-handed. This is where the ‘root of bitterness’ festered and festered, and we see its ugly manifestation on T.V. and in our newspapers every day. The upshot is that Ishmael loved and revered his father Abraham, but after the separation he came to hate the God of Abraham and Isaac, and so it is with Islam today. This root of bitterness has been festering now for some four thousand years. This ancient hatred is now a boiling caldron that is coming to a cataclysmic climax in our time today.
THE BATTLE BETWEEN ISRAEL AND ISLAM IS THE MOST ANCIENT CONFLICT, AS IT IS A WAR BETWEEN THE GOD OF ISRAEL AND BAALPEOR
According to the Encyclopaedia of Religion, (Ibid., p. 48): “Allah is a pre-Islamic name, which corresponds to the Babylonian Bel.” In the Hebrew Bible, this same pagan god is referred to as Baal! Thus the ancient battle lines between the God of Israel and Baal or Baalpeor, have not changed, just as King Solomon used to say:
“That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN. Is there anything of which it may be said, ‘See, this is new!’ It has already been in ancient times before us.”
ELIJAH VERSUS THE PROPHETS OF BAAL
Without a doubt the most dramatic contest between YHVH, the God of Israel and Baal was when Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal to produce fire from heaven to burn up the sacrifice dedicated to their god. Despite the concerted efforts of some four hundred prophets of Baal interceding with their god for not less than nine solid hours, Baal proved to be an impotent god, who was not able to respond to the urgent prayers of his followers. However, when it finally was Elijah’s turn to beseech His God, the Holy One of Israel, fire fell from heaven after a mere 30 seconds, and thus the God of Israel vindicated His prophet in the sight of the nation. Elijah then commanded for the prophets of Baal to be seized, and he had them all executed on the spot without exception.
Islam is certain to meet the same fate in the not too distant future, and when this occurs all the surviving sons of Ishmael, who have been kept in the prison house of Islam, will finally be set free. Islam’s current doctrine demands the execution of any Muslim who dare leave Islam for another religion. Without question the world will be a better place when this evil death cult is finally vanquished and destroyed.
Elijah & the Prophets of Baal by Jerry Harston
Most of ancient Israel’s enemies were Baal worshippers, so, what’s new? Just as Solomon has already so eloquently stated: “There is nothing new under the sun!” It should not come as a surprise therefore that the old battle lines between the one and only True GOD, the GOD of Israel, and the false god of Islam, i.e. Baal, the god of rebellion and witchcraft, still continue to be drawn to this day. Allah, the god of Islam, is the modern manifestation of that same Baal, and he has infected his Muslim followers with the spirit of Jihad. This wicked spirit will not find rest until it has snuffed out the life of every Jew and Israelite!
The greatest book of Muslim tradition, “The Hadith,” speaks more eloquently about the utter hatred of Islam for the Jews, than any other book I know, other than the Koran itself. The Hadith states the following:
“The one sent by Allah has already said the great hour will not come until the Muslims make war upon the Jews, and kill so many of them, that when a Jew would hide behind a tree or rock, these objects will speak and say: ‘O MUSLIM, SERVANT OF GOD, THERE IS A JEW BEHIND ME. COME AND KILL HIM!”
ISHMAEL WISHES TO MURDER ISAAC
The descendants of Ishmael now want to kill the descendants of Isaac, the true heirs of the Covenant. Just as Cain murdered Abel, so Ishmael too wishes to murder his brother Isaac. The International edition of the Jerusalem Post in an article entitled, “Eye on the Media,” reporting on a Muslim Fundamentalist Conference at the Islamic University in London in March 1994, stated: That the leaders of this conference had declared the next century would become, “the Century of Islam!” One of the speakers on the main platform went on record by saying:
“The Messianic Age, the acceptance of Islam by all the earths’ inhabitants, would not arrive unless there was a mass slaughter of the Jews.”
The speaker went on to say: “We’ve been talking about killing Zionists. Let’s not mention Zionists. The Jews are our enemy and, please God, we should finish them.”
The message has not changed since then, it has only got much shriller with the abominable Isil terrorists going on a murderous rampage throughout the Middle East and Europe. The leaders of Iran are even talking publicly about the imminent nuclear annihilation of Israel! One Ahmad Karimpour, a senior adviser to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards elite unit at Al Quds Force, said the Iranian military had the capacity to erase the Zionist regime in less than eight minutes. *(Daily Telegraph, May 27, 2016). Remember Haman, the vizier of ancient Persia? His big idea was:……….
“To destroy, to kill, and to annihilate all the Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month of Adar, and to plunder their possessions.”
The modern rulers of Iran have adopted that same satanic spirit that possessed the evil Haman and the deadly trajectory they have engineered is the nuclear destruction of the State of Israel in just eight minutes! Of course we can take comfort from the Book of Esther, which shows how this vile anti-Semite came to a sticky end as, by orders of the King, Haman was hanged from his own gallows.
We are now in the 21st century, the century of Islam, and look what mayhem and violence they have created in their quest for their “messianic age.” Sadly, worse is yet to come and it is part of YHVH’s judgement upon his rebellious people Israel, as he administers His Rod of correction out of love for His wayward children.
ISLAM IS REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY WRIT LARGE
What Muhammad has really done in his Koran is to steal the clothes of the Jews! He must have thought those clothes were worth stealing in the first place, and thus he was actually paying a back handed compliment to the God of Israel. When Muslims have the temerity to speak of a Messianic Age and equate it with a time when the whole world will accept the writ of Allah and Islam, they are practicing “Replacement Theology!” Allah, the demon god of the moon has “replaced” YHVH, the Holy One of Israel. Their Koran has “replaced” the Torah of Moses and the Tanach (the Old Testament)! Their false prophet Muhammad has “replaced” all the former prophets of Israel, as they claim that Muhammad’s revelation was the final revelation from God, which supersedes all the others combined. They have “replaced” all the promises God made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and applied them to the adherents of the Koran only. They have “replaced” Isaac as Abraham’s heir, and have substituted Ishmael instead. They have “replaced” all the blessings God pronounced upon Isaac and his descendants and abrogated them for themselves.
The Islamic religion is a usurper, which has usurped the things pertaining to the true God of Abraham, the Holy One of Israel. Islam is an imposter and the Koran is “replacement theology” writ large!
Allah, and Muhammad his prophet, have stolen Israel’s clothes and thus by the rules of their own Koran they deserve to have both their hands cut off!
Anyone who practices this sort of “Replacement Theology” brings himself the most deadly curse. It is the curse of God himself! Ultimately there is no hope for Islam and all the poor deceived Muslim people who are held captive in its horrible prison house, until that foul lying Jihad spirit is crushed. The message of the Bible is that the God of Israel is going to use His chosen people as a hammer and an anvil to crush that vile Islamic spirit once and for all.
Typical Saxon double headed Axe
ISRAEL IS GODS BATTLE AXE
The prophet Jeremiah having stated that the enemies of Israel will perish in their day of punishment goes onto say the following:
“The portion of Jacob is not like them, for He is the Maker of all things; and Israel is the tribe of His inheritance (not Ishmael). The LORD of hosts is His Name. You are my BATTLE AXE and weapon of war. For with you I will break the nation in pieces; with you I will destroy kingdoms.”
Israel is God’s chosen instrument of judgement. God has commanded His battle axe people, the whole House of Israel comprises both Judah and Joseph, to finally deal with Islam. It is no accident that the heraldic symbol of the Saxon tribes was, and to this day remains the emblem of crossed Battle Axes. The emblem is found throughout Western Europe, and the English speaking world. The Saxon Battle Axe emblem is properly emblazoned with the inward turned blades passively facing each other. The reason the blades face inward is because they symbolically represent God’s instrument of correction, and only He has the right to turn the battle axe aggressively outward in order to serve as an instrument of His divine retribution. By a sacred decree it falls to the whole House of Israel to ultimately break the nation of Islam in pieces and to utterly destroy her kingdom.
RECONCILIATION BETWEEN ISHMAEL & ISAAC
Individually, the Arabs themselves are not our enemies and there is much that we can admire in their culture. The Arab descendants of Ishmael are a noble race with high standards. They have many excellent qualities, as they are given to hospitality, as was Abraham, their father. They are clearly a deeply religious and faithful people. Muslims too anticipate the Resurrection from the Dead and a Day of Judgement with its reward of paradise for good and eternal hell fire for evil.
In the holy Koran the Muslims are led to anticipate the coming of another sun, after Muhammad, he is the promised Mahdi, who is to rise in the last days. This Mahdi, or Saviour, they expect will indeed arise. However, the followers of Allah are in for a big surprise! This Mahdi they are awaiting is none other than the true Messiah, the Lion of the tribe of Judah. It will be a Jewish Mahdi, or Messiah who will ultimately save, restore and bless the Arab nation. It is Shiloh, who respectively is Mashiach ben David to the Jews, and Yeshua, the King of Kings, [Jesus], the Messiah of Christianity, who will lead the descendants of Ishmael into an inheritance and blessings such as they have never known. However, first of all this Mahdi or Messiah must humble Allah, and defeat and destroy the spirit of Jihad.
It is my belief that the process will start in the near future. The prophesies of the Bible, as well as present day world trends indicate that it is likely that it will be jump-started in the next full blown Arab-Israel war. Allah will be severely humbled in the next war, and even more so in the Gog and Magog war that will ultimately follow on from there, when Allah and Islam will finally be crushed all-together. It is only when their moon god has been utterly discredited and defeated that the millions of Muslims held captive under his sway will find the courage to reject their god, who has served them so ill. They will then reject Allah and his prophet Muhammad, and they will not listen anymore to their Mullah’s. The dark reign of Islam will crumble before their very eyes. Then the poor Muslims and Islamic peoples will finally be delivered from the crushing oppression and bondage that is encapsulated in the Koran. They will come to know a new freedom (not licence), a new liberty when the stifling burden of their religion is finally lifted from their shoulders. This is especially true of the women who are being oppressed and subjugated by Islam. In fact the Koran teaches in Sura 4:34 that women are inferior to men and it even admonishes ‘husbands to scourge their wives.’ I long to see those poor Arab and Muslim women released for are they not also created in the image of God?
Once again the Arab people themselves are not our enemies; we are Mishpochah (family), as we both trace our lineage back to our father Abraham. Soon after this, yes in our day, a day will dawn when the Jews, and all the other myriads of tribal descendants of Jacob, will welcome and recognise the Arabs, the descendants of Ishmael, as their ‘older’ brother. Half-brother though he may be, he is still our brother. It will be a time of wonderful reconciliation after centuries of pain, strife and war. Can we not as believers in Messiah Yeshua, see the day when the Muslim Arab will be prepared to kiss the feet of the Jew? Can we also see the day when the Jew will wash the feet of his ‘older brother,’ the Arab? Hallelujah! It will be a new age – the age of Messiah! The prophet Isaiah speaks of this yet future time…………….
THE HIGHWAY BETWEEN EGYPT AND ASSYRIA
“In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians. In that day Israel will be one of three with Egypt and Assyria — a blessing in the midst of the land, whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, ‘Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.’ ”
This highway Isaiah speaks of will in all probability go from Cairo, through Israel and Syria to Baghdad in Iraq. These prophetic words describe a time, not too far ahead, when there will be reconciliation between Egypt, Israel and Iraq. They will be trading together and have friendly relations with free traffic flowing to and from on this great highway from Egypt to Iraq through the land of Israel. God is saying through the prophet that, in that day, Israel will be one of three, and fully on par with Egypt and Iraq. The God of Israel is saying: ‘BLESSED IS MY PEOPLE EGYPT!’ Have you ever heard such a thing!!! O, what a marvellous future awaits Egypt!! The God of Israel has nothing against Egypt or the Egyptian people; He even calls them My people! Two of the tribes of Israel, Ephraim and Manasseh, the sons of the patriarch Joseph, have Egyptian blood in them. Joseph married Assenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah the priest of On, one of the most important priestly families of ancient Egypt. Egypt and Israel were once family and the time will come when they will be family again.
God calls Assyria the ‘work of His hands.’ The seat of the ancient Assyrian Empire was Iraq, but it also included part of present day Iran, Syria and the Lebanon. Abraham himself, his wife Sarah and his cousin Lot all came from Ur of the Chaldees, a city situated on the banks of the river Euphrates, in present day Iraq. Even Rebecca the wife of Isaac, and both Leah and Rachel, the wives of Jacob, came from the same great Semitic household, which had descended from Terah, the father of Abraham. The whole family originated from present day Iraq, the former seat of both the Babylonian and Assyrian Empires. It can thus be said that it was the land of present day Iraq, which gave birth to the patriarch Abraham, and to all of the wives of the three great patriarchs from which the nation of Israel has sprung. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob expresses His fondness for Assyria and refers to it as ‘the work of His hands.’ Note the prophet speaks of a different blessing on each of the three, but he is quite clear that ‘Israel is God’s inheritance!’ God speaks through His prophet about a time when Iraq and all the surrounding Arab nations will live in harmony with Israel. O, what a blessed time that will be. Soon may His Kingdom come!
