But on a day when being Muslim is actually celebrated in an Oklahoma State house, Muslims came, knelt, and prayed to Allah (Satan, by another name). I don’t recall ever seeing a situation where Christians were actually invited into a government building, allowed to kneel, and pray to the God of the Bible. In fact, there have been numerous cases where DC police have stopped Christian groups from praying on the steps of the Supreme Court building. They were told if they continued, they would face arrest. I have no doubt that this would not be the case if Muslims threw down their prayer rugs and knelt in prayer. In fact, they have not been interrupted when groups of Muslims have gotten together to pray on or near the White House property. Christians are not given the same courtesy and respect.
There is far more that can be accomplished through prayer than anything else. It is through prayer that we align ourselves with God’s ways and purposes. Do we honestly think God doesn’t know what’s going on? Do we think even for a second that God’s hands are tied and He can do nothing without us or that He is waiting for us to change our outlook before He can move? If you think that, I would suggest – with all due respect – that you bury your face in His Word and find out what He is doing NOW.
The secret doctrine is something that is said to bind all religious ideologies together in a true mystical union and this secret is a reflection of the perfect essence of all thought in the spiritual realm. Of course, what we learn as we get deeper into it is that it is really a spiritual type of socialism or communism, where the individual doesn’t matter. What matters is the spiritual “collective” because that’s where all secret doctrine is said to lead.
But you know what the most difficult thing for the authentic Christian to do is, when it comes to Islam? Love them. Share with them the good news of Jesus Christ, the gospel that can lead them to salvation. Islam is not capable of providing salvation. It’s not built that way. There is nothing in it that even suggests a Muslim could have the guarantee of eternal life (except through dying for Allah, like a suicide bomber). All they can do is hope they earn it through service and works. Salvation is not a free gift in Islam.
Things are not going to calm down in the Middle East, Israel, or Jerusalem. If anything, they will worsen, until at some point Daniel 9:27 will be fulfilled. Note the first part of that verse tells us that a covenant will be brokered between Israel and surrounding Arab nations and the “he” in that verse (Antichrist). Antichrist will have great interest in gaining peace for that area of the world for one “week” or seven years, so that Israel can undertake the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple. Antichrist needs that temple to be rebuilt so that at the midway point of three and a half years, he can defile it. Once he declares himself God, it is then that persecution breaks out onto the world such as has never been seen before nor will again (cf. Matthew 24).
America is a country that is being profoundly attacked from within. The fact that there is a very good possibility that a statue of Baphomet is being constructed and may very well be placed in front of the Oklahoma State House is not only perplexing, but grieving. There is no excuse for it and the only reason that can be offered is that America has sunk to this point through a constant posture of pushing God away.
