American Society Logo – Islamic?
I teach part-time at a local college and as I was walking through the hall and saw one of the computer monitors on the wall. As usual, it was advertising something, in this case a relay run for the American Cancer Society. I didn’t really pay attention to it.
After about the third time of walking past the monitor, the logo jumped out at me, and I remember thinking, “What does that logo remind me of?” As I looked at it, the light dawned. Well, I’ll be doggone! Looks like there’s the symbol that’s on the Islamic flag! Could it be? The normal logo for the American Cancer Society is simply the lower right hand portion of this logo, the part with the medical symbol (with red background) and then the blue shape to the right with the words “American Cancer Society.”
However, it looks like for this specific event, the individuals at the American Cancer Society added to their original logo, what looks to be a slice of the moon with the one star, in this case off to the left.
You can one version of the symbol for Islam used in the flag below. As you can see, the crescent moon with one star is obvious.
This leads to a question: did the folks at the American Cancer Society simply – by accident come up with the new logo for the relay without intending to do so? That’s kind of difficult to believe.
If they did not accidentally come up with it, then the only other answer is that they came up with it intentionally, however chose to make it look as though it was simply coincidental in nature. I don’t buy it. I’ve been seeing the star and crescent too much in society as it is and in fact, it seems to be permeating society on a global level.
So what do we make of this? Is it a conspiracy? Is it something that simply happens because the graphic artists all tend to think of crescent moons and a star? I think it’s done intentionally to undergird people’s thinking with things that are related to Islam. If this is correct, then that leads us to the question of why people (the movers and shakers) are doing this? What possible need does the world have to see the Islamic logo in everything?
Except for the fact that it sends hidden messages to radical Islamists, I’m not sure what other reason it could possible exist. But let’s go off the deep end for a moment. If (and that’s a fairly big “if”), this is all part of the plan to indoctrinate the masses, what does it say to radical Islam?
I think it can only say one thing. It says, “We’re with you. Go for it! Create chaos and we will look the other way!” If you stop to think about it, isn’t that what is happening throughout the world now?
As I wrote about the other day, the world is experiencing what many are calling “creeping Sharia.” We are slowly seeing radical Islam encroaching upon various areas of society. In Dearborn, MI, with the most recent Arab Festival, non-Muslims were unceremoniously spit on. Though this assault was caught on video, no one was arrested.
In various parts of the world, Muslims are burning down Christian churches, and gathering to demonstrate the fact that Jewish synagogues exist. This Muslim-on-Non-Muslim violence is getting out of hand mainly because those in authority are complacent about it, or simply do not want to do anything about it.
Can you imagine if one country was at war with another country – let’s say country A and country B. What do you think would happen if country A attacked country B and country B essentially did nothing except back up and get out of the way? Their thinking would be “If we leave them alone, they’ll stop attacking us.” If we saw a country do that, we would likely think of their leaders as morons. They are being attacked, yet instead of fighting back, they are simply giving in.
I believe that this is what is happening throughout the world. The problem though is that in our politically correct world, no one wants to say that the problem stems from one particular culture group. We don’t mind a war against a country, but against one particular ethnicity or religious group? So, at every turn, our duplicitous leaders have chosen to walk around the problem, giving Islam a wide berth. Their thinking is that, like a ferocious barking dog, if you give it enough space, it will leave you alone.
Well, how much more do we have to see before our leaders will admit that being politically correct is a no-win situation for us? In fact, being politically correct about the situation simply plays into the enemy’s hands.
We have leaders in Washington who do not want anyone to say that we are at war with Islam. That’s just not nice. It’s counter-productive. Okay, then I will say it this way: Islam is at war with the world! To deny this is to deny our own rights and freedoms. It is giving up before we even pick up our weapons.
The more the world lies down, the more emboldened Islam will become. The more I study Islam, the more I see a complete lack of love and peace. I’m glad for those Muslims who are peaceful. They see the world through rose-colored glasses. If they truly believe that Islam is a “religion of peace,” that’s up to them, but when I read the Qur’an, and watch the news, I see nothing that confirms that. In fact, Muhammad’s own life negates the idea that love is the center piece of Islam.
So what do we do? Simple. We do not give in to their thugishness. We do not roll over and play dead. We also do not start acting like they are acting (though we want to). We do not go out of our way to imitate their behavior, but neither do we ask them “how high?” when they say “jump!”
I firmly believe that Islam is being used by the powers that exist in this world to create the type of catastrophic societal breakdown that will usher in the New World Order. It is really that simple. Once that happens, I believe these same powers that be will come down extremely hard on Islamic radicals to regain the order that was lost.
To us, it seems like an uncontrolled, volitional problem that is going to simply rise to the point of explosion. In fact, it is likely a very controlled, planned demolition of society that these world leaders believe is needed to usher in the next level of global change.
If we know that this is what is happening, we can at least be prepared for it. We don’t have to succumb to the fear that drives the average person, and neither do we have to cave into the demands that we hear from the godless of this world.
The reality is that God is fully in control – always has been and always will be! There is nothing that slips by his notice.
I may be completely wrong about what I’ve said here today (except for the previous paragraph). Maybe the world powers have nothing to do with the rise of Islam. Maybe they are not trying to bring us to the brink of chaos so that they act the hero by setting up a New World Order. I don’t believe that is the case. I go by what I see and what I see in the world is telling me that something behind the scenes is catapulting this world to the brink of insane chaos. If you disagree with that, then I’m wondering if we are looking at the same world and I do not mean that sarcastically.
Look at everything that has been happening since before Mr. Obama was elected. The tsunami of support that literally swept him into office (or so it seemed) changed the fate of this country.
Since taking the oath of office, Mr. Obama has seemingly worked diligently to do everything in his power to undercut the policies of our founding fathers. Now, through the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), rather than work through Congress regarding illegal aliens into this country, the administration (though remaining in the background) has been working to change policy so that the hands of the individuals in the ICE are tied when it comes to determining who is and who is not here illegally.
Mr. Obama has defied Congress on several occasions (including the ongoing situation in Libya). He has been spending hand over fist the money from taxpayers of this nation. Tell me, with our economy as it is, why does the First Lady need to go to Spain, or to Africa by herself?
We are experiencing food shortages throughout the world that are elevating prices at the grocery store. Gas prices continue to fluctuate. Flooding, earthquakes, tornadoes, and more are routine in the U.S., breaking records. Are these things happenstance, or are they being controlled? Is HAARP the common link? We know that it’s capable of producing extremely high-quality images on the horizon as was recently done in China. Is it capable of creating heavenly signs and wonders as well?
This country is on the brink of financial destruction and our government seems unwilling or unable to do anything about it. Yesterday, during discussions of how to reduce the debt, many politicians simply walked out of the meeting led by VP Biden because they are fighting to keep new taxes off the table. The White House says it wants a “balanced approach” to debt reduction. Great, let’s start with putting a moratorium on how much Mr. Obama can spend!
So what we are looking at the world over is tension that is often erupting in violence. Presently, Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Greece, and other areas of the world are experiencing social upheaval. Many countries are starting to crumble under the pressure of economic woes.
On top of that, we have Islamists demanding to have things done their way and if that means that other people are denied their rights, too bad. This kind of upheaval in society causes the hearts of the people to fail them out of plain, old ordinary fear (cf. Luke 21:26). People are scared and they have good reason to be. However, we were warned in Scripture that these days were coming. They are now here and we have people who deny this reality.
Recently, Preterist Gary DeMar held a prophecy conference that derided those who still hold to a Premillennialist position, especially those of us who believe in a PreTrib Rapture. People like DeMar do not believe in the coming physical return of Jesus either, because they believe He returned in A.D. 70 when Rome crushed Jerusalem.
Yet, when I look around, I see the words of Scripture coming to pass. I don’t look at the newspaper and see where I can fit a specific event into the Bible. I look at the entire landscape and can clearly see that things that Jesus spoke of in the Olivet Discourse are now happening.
This is the problem though when you only look at one or two things. It takes the ability to see everything that is happening on the horizon. What is the overall picture?
I teach computer courses, using Windows operating system and Microsoft Office. It is always interesting to me to see students who focus on the details losing sight of the overall picture. Normally, each new chapter in the book teaches several skills for either Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Access. It is easy to simply focus on the this skill, which leads to that skill, which then leads to the next skill. What I try to do is help students understand what the project will look like when they are finished with it. The individual steps get them to the end. If they lose sight of the end and simply focus on each step as if that step is the end in and of itself, all they will become is thoroughly frustrated. Seeing the big picture helps them know that the steps are there for their use, not as an end in themselves.
I believe that God is fully and intimately involved in what is going on today. We can choose to focus on this or that as if those things will overcome us, or we intelligently understand that the whole picture is designed by God, therefore He will give us the strength and wisdom to know how to react to the situation.
One thing is for sure. We are not to fear anything. There is absolutely nothing to fear. Do you fear Islam? You shouldn’t. You should be willing to calmly stand against it. Do you fear running out of food? You shouldn’t? You should take necessary measures to stock up food and water and grow a garden if you can. If you fall prey to fear, you will be overtaken.
Instead, understand what is coming – and is already at the door – and make plans for yourself and your family. While God does not want us to fear, He also wants us to use His wisdom to know how we should prepare for these events.
Yes, these are dark days. However, I firmly believe that Christians have the best reason in the world to be filled with His joy, while overcoming the circumstances that are thrown in our paths. We worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! He will never leave or forsake us!
Islam is coming at us from all sides. Godless leaders are doing what they can to bring this country to its knees. Satan is doing everything he can to break into our world from his dimension in a more concerted effort than ever before. So? Our job is to be as gentle as doves and as wise as serpents (cf. Matthew 10:16). With that attitude, nothing can overcome us. We need to be aware of what is going on in our world. This is a must. We do not, however, need to fear any of it. God will supply the wisdom necessary to push through these problems with aplomb. God is GREAT!
God is still on the throne and in fact, has never for one second been off of it! Authentic Christians need to start acting as if we believe it. Praise be to the God we serve!
