The Current Conflict is Spiritual…Islam and the West pt 1

Psalm 74

O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture? Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt. Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary. Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs. A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees. But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers. They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground. They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land. We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.

O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever? Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck it out of thy bosom. For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.

There is an irony in the current geopolitical struggle against Islamic terrorism.

Humanly speaking, the western nations, for the most part, led by secular humanists and even atheists, have the power to utterly wipe out the terrorists, the terror apparatus, the financiers, apologists, the breeding grounds for the underlying philosophy of terror, and even to punish the nations who support terror, overtly or otherwise. If Europe, England and America decided to, they could go “total war” on all of that, as we did Naziism and Shintoism in World War 2 and utterly destroy them all.

When George W.Bush warned the world He would go after the terrorists and any who enabled them, Qaddafi believed him and voluntarily surrendered Libya’s weapons of mass destruction. We have the power, militarily, economically, intellectually to defeat Islamic terror.Too bad Bush didn’t have the will to follow through, he could have cleaned out the Saudi’s, Pakistan and a host of our other fake friends, for they all knew he had the power. they were shaking in their sandals!

But now they know that we do not have the will, for some reason.

On the other hand, Al Queda, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Shabab, ISIS,ISIL, Boko Haram , Hezbullah, and the Shiite world, any one of them would utterly destroy the West without hesitation, anytime, anywhere, they have the will to do so. They merely lack the power. Thank God!

What is the reason for the moral paralysis of the west? Why have these dangerous and retrograde forces only been allowed to increase, and to menace more and more of our western cities, causing us to spend billions on security, and allowing hordes of those who hate us into our lands,even putting them on the public dole?

Honest hardworking taxpayers in Britain, America and France must now support families of those who so hate everything about us, they refuse to so much as have any dealings with us. But they vote,and plot and scheme.What is this?

This series seeks to explore one aspect of it, but I believe the most important aspect… that is the Spiritual .

In short, a people who do not believe in anything cannot resist a people of belief, even if the belief is manifestly evil!

Shortly after September 11, 2001, I was startled to read a headline to the effect that the West had already lost the war! It was an article which cited another article, in a publication called “The Jewish Press” . The author was a man named Moishe Feiglin.

I quote,  from an article in Israel National News,

“Moishe Feiglin writes about his visit to the U.S.. Feiglin happened to be in New York the week of September 11. He was in a small grocery store when he heard President Bush announce on the radio that there would be a national day of prayer. “Go to Church, Synagogue or Mosque and pray,” the President said. Feiglin describes his reaction; “Did I hear right?” I ask the shopkeeper.”Did he say mosque?” She nodded. “At this very moment yu’ve lost the war, I say to the astonished shopkeeper. Feiglin explains,”They slaughter you in the name of Allah, and now the President calls upon you to pray to Him”.

I was struck by that quote for the truth and clarity of it. I believe the Muslims are wrong about everything. Their religion is the worship of the Devil, disguised as “God”, they are utterly immoral and barbarous and even their criticisms of the west are hypocritical, (More on that point later). But they do get one thing right… This war is Spiritual.

Their beheadings are ritual murders, sacrifices to Satan, terror is a religious obligation, they empower miserable young men to committ atrocities by promising them a heaven which looks like a pornographic magazine.

In the meantime our feckless leaders deny the religious aspect of our struggle.

Our leaders in the West have never been at more of a distance from the people they supposedly serve, than right now. I know for a fact that in middle America there are still quite a few people who consider themselves Christians, work hard and are appalled at the cultural decline we are all witnessing.

But our leaders are for the most part secularists. They have an elite arrogance, that they are constructing with other western leaders, “A Brave, new (godless) world…” devoid of any one dominant religion (Such as Christianity). They would suppress all public expressions of it, or acknowledgment in American history of its blessed effect, other than a strictly enforced private version of your “personal faith tradition”.

I am convinced that our current cultural elite, are the very “Kings of the Earth and their rulers”that the second Psalm warned us about, who have been on a long, steady march through our civilization-al institutions, stripping away every vestige of Judeo Christian influence from our world. They are cultural liberators, but they seek to liberate us from that which made the West great, Judeo/Christianity.

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.(PSalm 2:2-3)

Some of them like Bush and the Clintons pretend to be Christian, when they need to muster the support of the heartland of America, but lately, with Obama, all pretense is being dropped, such as when he made the devastating announcement to the Muslim world, that America doesn’t consider itself a Christian nation anymore.(This was a lie, but it greatly encouraged our enemies).

One other way that our “Kings and Rulers” have disheartened us and hollowed out our national will to survive s a nation, has been by persistently flooding us with unassimilable immigrants, such as Muslims (All Muslim immigration should have been shut off on 9, 12 ,20001, and in a sane nation it would have). Thus the votes of the last traces of Christian America have been canceled out by people who have no stake in this country and no love for it! They want the goodies and the politicians keep power by making sure they get them,at taxpayer expense of course.

Picture a nation as a body. The human body carries all kinds of cells, good and bad, but as long as the immune system is strong, the body can survive. But should the immune system be overloaded and compromised, the body can sicken and even die.

When I consider the social revolution of the sixties and seventies, and all of the changes since then, I ask myself, how much trauma can the American body politic sustain? How much pornography? How much sexual anarchy such as homosexuality? How much racial animosity, carefully tended by the politicians and race pimps ala Jackson and Sharpton, can this body politic sustain? Millions of Americans were willing to die to stop tyranny and establish freedom and rule of law, but Who would join the military to lay down their lives to establish homosexual marriage or abortion?

50 years of steady, Irresponsible accusation of race hatred, has caused us to literally put into office a man who openly hates America and all she stands for.

The body is sick, and Islam is an opportunistic disease. We pray that the sickness will not be unto death, but the cure is spiritual. False religion which is fervent and murderous can only be resisted by those who have a form of true religion. The heart of every “Culture” is the “Cultus”, the worship and concept of God which created the culture. The West didn’t spring out of a mythology, or a fairy tail. Western civilization is a direct outcome of Christianity.

Our leaders are blind and unsure because for the most part they have long ago abandoned Judeo/Christian America. The second Psalm speaks of a “Vain imagination”. What could it be? I think part of it, is that they imagine we can have the benefits of the civil and productive and united society Christianity gave us, without the Christianity.

I recently heard Pat Buchannon in a speech about “The Death of the West”, in answer to a question to the effect that “Do we need a new Thomas Jefferson o George Washington to renew America”? His answer was, “No we need another Apostle Paul”, To which I would add ,”or a Jonathon Edwards or Geirge Whitefield or John Wesley”. May God give us revival, and even in Judgment, may the Lord remember mercy.

    Bill you just get better and better at pinpointing the way those whose hearts break in viewing the world through the lens of biblical Christianity!

    I remember when there was no need to specify a Christian or a church with those words….it was presumed perhaps too readily that all who claimed “Christ” were so according to scripture

    How times have changed!

    If those who take the name of Christ without the truth how are those without to know the difference! And so it seems that the Devils wiles regarding the infiltrate and redirect has been pretty effective as pews are either empty or supplied with mattresses for those who sleep and dream imaginary doctrine under the ether of false teachers😱

  2. Onesimus says:

    In short, a people who do not believe in anything cannot resist a people of belief, even if the belief is manifestly evil

    I think this is a very profound observation.
    In the case being discussed, it is the manifestly evil belief (or the “god” behind it) that has no hesitancy in forcing itself upon others.
    This is in stark contrast to the One True God who wants WILLING followers. Who despite His desire for ALL to be saved, does not force Himself upon anyone.

      “In short, a people who do not believe in anything cannot resist a people of belief, even if the belief is manifestly evil.” How true. Most people really don’t know much about any one religion, and what they know is what they hear and read in the secular & apostate media. I will go further and say most people who claim to be Christians don’t even know what the gospel is (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), and have never read through the Bible for themselves. In America’s churches the same is true, people don’t know anything about the church they attend, and as in the secular media, they only know what they are told by the people in the pulpits. So, it should not be so strange that much of the world is clueless, in church and in secular society. Everything is about feelings, and the worlds interpretation of love. The word ‘evangelical’ has been tainted. I was asked by my own husband what that word meant. I told him ‘Bible believing Christian’. With that said, it can’t be true that the evangelicals voting for our current politicians are really evangelical because how can they believe a Bible they have never read? The label (evangelical) sticks though, and it is quite powerless against evil. God’s word is NOT powerless if it is read, for in my own case it was how I became born again!

    Morning Bill I am in such agreement with all your warnings re Islam. But I did hear something so heart warming yesterday. I truly hope that it is so and that Is that 1000’s of Muslims are Coming to faith in Jesus Christ In the camps in Europe. They say Islam has no hope for them. If this is true we can only praise Almighty God for His mercy!! Regards and i do pray that God will keep us faithful in these testing times. Rentia Dippenaar South Africa I met you at Elijah. >

  6. Absolutely spot on Bill , that sums it up completely, and I fear that after Obama, the Muslim cheerleader and friend and secret Muslim, but secret no longer surely, things shall get worse as out of all the millions of people in the USA they have whittled the candidates down to two people who, in “normal” times would be unelectablel

      It saddens me that professing Christians (my assumption) continue such outrageous Obama-bashing by continual propagation of lies.
      Looking at the current presidential candidates, I see that no matter what the result, of the upcoming elections, God will be giving the US the kind of president it deserves.
      And if it turns out to be Trump, God will be giving American Christians the president they’ve been crying out for every time they’ve swallowed and regurgitated lies about their current president.

  7. billrandles says:

    Thanks Onesimus. Pray tell what lies are being propagated about Obama? Is it not true that he is the nation’s greatest advocate of abortion(even infanticide), and the most fervent promoter of homosexuality, and also our nations most adamant proponant of Islam, and consequently the first openly “anti israel”president in my lifetime? No lies are needed because the Truth is devastating enough concerning Obama. As for leaders, if it is true that we get the leaders we deserve, does that mean we deserved the very good leadership we have had in times past?

    • Onesimus says:

      Lies – such as claims he is a secret Muslim, as well as those you’ve repeated yourself in your reply.
      You seem to forget how far GW Bush went to insist that Islam was a religion of peace. You also seem to overlook that Obama’s stance on abortion and homosexuality is merely a continuation of what has gone before but further reinforced by the society in which he grew up. A society developed by the policies of earlier administrations who made abortion and homosexuality legal.

      And as for good leadership in the past? Which leaders would they be? I’m suspect you’re not referring to Bill Clinton; but surely you don’t; mean either of the Bushes who took America into wars that destabilised the world and helped to establish conditions conducive for the extremist Islamic groups that are such a problem in the world today?

      Or maybe you’re referring to Reagan, whose economic policies helped to further the divide between rich and poor by slashing taxes on the rich and cutting welfare programmes for the poor to pay for the cuts?

  8. Chris says:

    All men including Presidents have feet of clay, many leaders are hero worshipped by the masses, God can use them to direct the government of the time but in their spiritual, personal life they are great sinners and in the end will stand at God’s judgement and they will be condemned to Hell ..unless there is a true repentance from sin they will die in their sins.
    If they keep resisting God He will give them up and a sinful leader can bring a country down.
    Solomon for example became an idolater and God divided the Kingdom during the reign of his sons as a punishment.
    We can point the finger very easily at those in leadership but we must examine ourselves and ask God to check our hearts, because the heart is deceitful and we cannot keep it pure in our own. Strength.
    Obama seems to be destroying American and if God is letting him do this then God’s chastisement upon the Americans for their immorality is just.
    But they are not the only nation under judgement.

  9. billrandles says:

    I haven’t repeated any lies, Obama his more than your standard Anortion or Homosexual favoring leftist,As Senator in Illinois he championed a Bill which would forbid hospitals to rescucitate any babies who survived Saline abortions, and Newsweek magazine (rightly) considered I’m the most gay friendly president. I have trashed Bushes and Clintons in other forums, I think they are all failures, the good leadership I was referring to goes back further(Madison, Hoover, Coolidge) .This isn’t even a political forum.
