There are numerous opinions as to how ISIS came into being, who is supplying them with weapons and how they are funded. Opinions range from the CIA (USA) created ISIS and weapons of mass destruction were illegally sent to ISIS groups in Syria under cover of the upheaval during Qaddafi’s overthrow in Libya, to the Saudi Arabians created and continue to fund the terrorist organization. There are other possibilities as well. Among so-called conspiracy theorists and theories, ISIS was created, weaponized, funded, and directed by the most powerful cabal in the world, the Elite (also known by numerous other names).
Such was King Ahab, who possibly without realizing it (but being just as culpable), ended up sided with Satan, and because of the overbearing personality of Jezebel and the fact that Ahab had little to no fight in him, Ahab continually opposed God’s purposes. Because of this and as is usually the case, Jezebel didn’t stop at simply ensuring that the worship of Baal was established throughout Israel. Eventually, she wanted to completely stamp out the worship of Jehovah.
The times are becoming more difficult for all people, but especially for Christians, because I believe God is allowing Satan to gain dominion over this world for the coming seven years known as the Tribulation/Great Tribulation. It will kick off when one man steps onto the world’s stage and brokers a peace agreement with Israel and the surrounding Arab nations (Daniel 9:27). That man – the Antichrist – will eventually rise to the top of the heap and will be allowed (by God) to rule this entire planet for seven years. Ultimately, it will be Satan ruling through Antichrist, who is really Satan’s spiritual son. In that sense then, Satan will fulfill, to some degree, his promises he made to himself (yet God heard because of His sovereignty and omniscience), that he would become “like the Most High,” (Isaiah 14:14).
The Christians who live in exceedingly dark countries, where evil reigns seemingly unchecked, understand how to let go of the things of this world. They allow God to slough off the things that keep them connected to the system of Babylon. You can move out of America and go to another country, but you can still be connected to the system of Babylon spiritually. God wants us to come out of her so that we are dedicated to Him and His purposes, so that we will stop thinking about our “rights” and “privileges” and focus on His will.
When we focus on changing society, we pick and choose our “enemies” in that society. We see people who oppose us as enemies and begin treating them as such. We are incapable of seeing them as people loved by God and whom He does not want to perish. In fact, because we see them as enemies, we cannot see them as people who need salvation. It’s impossible to do both! Because we live in America, anyone who attempts to deprive us of our rights under the Constitution is considered our enemy. Politics first! Society must change all for God’s glory! That’s not what the Bible says. He will change society when He returns with His righteous judgment. We cannot do that, yet we persist in trying.
I want to state that I fully reject and condemn Shoebat’s words, the callousness of his attitude, and his seeming absolute lack of Christlike love toward all people. But again, this is often where Dominionism leads, in my opinion. It breeds contempt for others. It sees people who oppose Christianity as the enemy. In one sense, those who remain lost are enemies of God, just as those of us who are now Christians were all enemies of God prior to embracing salvation (Colossians 1:21), but these people are not our enemies and there is a huge difference. Paul speaks clearly about this when he tells us quite plainly that our battle is not against flesh and blood (human beings), but against those in the spiritual realm (Ephesians 6:12).
