Apex Of Hypocrisy,Deception And False Pride ! / Dr.Ben Carson Is A Hero.

Must the whole world fear Islam? What gives Muslims this blind boldness to defy logic and the God-given freedom of expression ?
Muslims are furies as usual as always when a brilliant hero exposes Islam’s reality for the last 14 hundred years.
Muslims are demanding unjustly that Dr.Ben Carson should drop out the presidential race as a candidate.Are Muslims the Masters of human destiny ? Because Dr.Ben Carson said.””Muslim should not be president.”” 
The Muslims believe they are the only Pure race and their Allah call them through Jihadism  for the Obliteration of the disbelievers in the world.(The Jew,Yazidis,Buddahs,Hindous,Christians and atheists..) Muslims think firmly that they are right and the rest of humanity are wrong,they are good and the rest of the world is evil according th the Islamic teachings ,that the non-believers are not worthy to live.They must obey , surrender or die.
Muslims are trying to kill Salman Rushdie because he published his book the “”satanic Verses in 1988.He exposed the reality of Islam. Salman is among the Islamic hit list like the Danish Cartoonist,Ayaan Hirsi Ali the heroine from Somalia who exposed the enslavement of women in Islam.Islam defies  human rights and freedom of speech.Muslims will kill whoever opposes their destructive ideology..
Muslims want to silence the whole world despite God’s given equality and right to be free.They use terrorism,as a tool to accomplish their agendas.ISIS,Boko Haram,and other thousand extremist groups are beheading innocent people to spread chaos and destruction.Muslims danced in their capitals when September 11,2001 terrorist attack happened.The attach killed 3000 innocent people.
The disbeliever ought then to Sue Muslims and Islam because they are trying to annihilate them. Christians ,Jews,Hindous did not demons chaotically when their brothers , sisters,sons ,daughters  and mothers  were decapitated by Islamic ideology and thugs.These Islamic thugs are born from Islam they are not Martians .The 18 Saudis terrorists who committed the atrocity  of the century in 9/11 they  were raised in the capital of the Islamic world,MECCA/Saudi Arabia.They were financed by Arab  oil money .,Saudi Arabia used to give Usama Bin Laden 250 million dollars to spread terror in the world.Hijacking planes and kidnapping journalist.Who would forget these acts of hate and aggression?
The world is on the verge of religious destructive course .The weak and disoriented world leaders are deaf,mute and speechless.Millions of Muslims are begging to be accepted as refugees in Christian countries while the Arab world and the 57 Muslim countries are refusing to accept one Syrian Muslim refugee.Is this what Islam stands for?

A Cautionary Epistle To Pope Francis In Relation To Serbia’s Fabrications Against Croatia’s Blessed Alojzije Stepinac

Sarcophagus of Blessed Alojzije Stepinac in Zagreb, Croatia

Sarcophagus of Blessed Alojzije Stepinac in Zagreb, Croatia

Papal power is not absolute. The Pope does not have the power to change teaching (or) doctrine. The Pope does not have the power to reverse the Beatification of Croatia’s Blessed Alojzije (Aloysius) Stepinac but, uncomfortably as it may sit with many, the Pope can slow down the process of Canonisation of Blessed Alojzije (Aloysius) Stepinac as Saint in the Catholic Church.
There has been much uneasiness spreading within the 85% Roman Catholic Croatian population about the visit on Friday 11 September 2015 of Serbia’s president Tomislav Nikolic to the Vatican, to meet with Pope Francis and enter into issues relating to the canonisation of Alojzije (Aloysius) Stepinac – or rather Serbia’s views on it – as one of the talks agenda. Furthermore, President Nikolic and Pope Francis have reportedly discuss the establishment of a joint commission of the Serbian Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches that will study “historical facts related to WWII and Cardinal Alojzije Stepinac’s role in the Independent State of Croatia (NDH).”

Blessed Alojzije (Aloysius) STepinac

Blessed Alojzije (Aloysius) STepinac

It is well-known that both the Serbian Orthodox Church and Serbian state oppose the canonisation of Blessed Stepinac, accusing him unjustly of supporting the Fascist regime in Croatia, which they say was responsible for the deaths of Serbs in Croatia in World War II. The commission would study historical evidence to determine his role, which is and has been widely disputed. Serbia and its political allies say that he supported the Fascist regime aligned with the Nazis while many Croats (guided by factual findings through research of archives, such as that of Dr. Esther Gitman) oppose the communist Yugoslavia picture concocted about Stepinac, still actively promoted by Serbs and some former communists in Croatia. The facts are that Blessed Alojzije Stepinac saved and rescued many lives of Jews, Serbs and Roma.

Does Pope Francis truly understand Europe if Serbia’s president Tomislav Nikolic is one of his advisers on the canonisation of Croatia’s Blessed Alojzije Stepinac – asked journalist D. Likic on Croatia’s news portal Maxportal. In continuance of such a sentiment of doubt, one truly wonders whether Pope Francis understands the past role President of Serbia actually played in the tragic and genocidal war of Serb aggression against Croatia in 1990’s? One truly wonders whether the Pope realises the terrifying significance for Croatian people Tomislav Nikolic’s incitement to hatred and crimes against Croats has and had? One truly wonders whether Pope Francis realises that Serbia’s President is one of the powerful personalities who keep denying and hiding the terrible role WWII Serbia played in the perpetration of the Holocaust – by May 1942, 94% of Serbia’s Jews were exterminated so that Serbia could announce it was one of the first European countries to be free of Jews. Serbia’s powerful keep telling the world that it was the occupying Nazis who exterminated all those Jews in Serbia – wrong! Serbia’s government and people who supported it collaborated with the Nazis, marked the Jews for extermination and brought them to extermination camps.
If the Pope realises all that, then perhaps the commission formed between the Catholic and Serbian Orthodox Church has and will discuss all the historical facts of WWII, including those relating to the role of the Serbian Orthodox Church and this role meant peril and death to Jews, Croats and others. Including the fact that, judging from its past behaviour and statements, the Serbian Orthodox Church has no intention or morality to accept the true facts about the Blessed Alojzije (Aloysius) Stepinac and his deeds of rescue and saving of persecuted people. So, why would one want someone who has proven himself to be so biased and hateful against Croats in advance on a commission or committee deciding on facts in WWII Croatia?
Truly baffling! Truly disquieting!
According to Serbia’s news agency Tanjug, following the meeting with Pope Francis, Nikolic told Tanjug that he had a very open discussion with the Pope about Cardinal Stepinac during which he had told the Pope that Cardinal Stepinac had played a very bad role in World War II.

He (Stepinac) should at least not have remained silent when someone is killing … citizens just because they are not of (Roman) Catholic faith,” Nikolic said.

The problem with this statement from Nikolic and all Serbia’s political and church leaders is that they choose, with evident intentional malice, to ignore the facts discovered (e.g. by research conducted by Dr. Esther Gitman) after government archives were opened in late 1990’s/early 2000’s when communist Yugoslavia finally fell. These facts irrefutable point to the absolute truth that Cardinal Stepinac, organising rescue missions and actions that would save lives also protested in writing against any killings done under the WWII regime, he became aware of, but his protests fell on deaf ears just as they are falling on deaf ears of Serbia today! Serbia’s Nikolic would like us to think, it seems, that an Archbishop (Stepinac) in WWII was more powerful that the country’s governmental leadership! Why else would he ignore Stepinac’s protests of which he is well aware?

Serbia’s president Nikolic boasted that the Pope had told him at one point that he was in no rush to declare the cardinal a saint. If that is true, it is sad and pathetic.

I think that I have come across a man who knows a great deal and who understands everything and who has accepted almost every statement and suggestion I put to him. This was a meeting between people who understood each other straight away,” Nikolic boasted further to the Serbian media.
God forbid! God forbid if Papal belief should be so easily filled!
Perhaps in the context of this commission established between the Catholic and the Serbian Orthodox Churches, and in the context that Serbia’s leaders and its Orthodox Church have been and still maliciously insist that Blessed Alojzije Stepinac is guilty of WWII crimes he had no part in committing or power to prevent, Pope Frances will find a way to point a revealing light on actual WWII facts for Serbia and wipe once and for all the foul drivel flowing out of Serbian political and religious leaders’ mouths for decades.
Pope Francis’ path so far has shown him as a kind of revolutionary man; a man who only last week broadened the power of priests to forgive women who commit what Catholic teachings call the “mortal sin” of abortion during his newly declared “year of mercy” starting in December. On last Sunday, 6 September, he called for “every” Catholic parish in Europe to offer shelter to one refugee family from the thousands of asylum-seekers risking all to escape war-torn Syria and other pockets of conflict and poverty. He repeatedly has denounced unrestrained capitalism. His attacks on “compulsive consumerism” and industrial damage to the world’s ecology came to a head during a fiery July speech in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. He said poor nations shouldn’t be mere sources of raw materials and cheap labor, and called the unfettered pursuit of money “the dung of the devil”:

Once capital becomes an idol and guides people’s decisions, once greed for money presides over the entire socioeconomic system,” he said, “it ruins society, it condemns and enslaves men and women, it destroys human fraternity, it sets people against one another and, as we clearly see, it even puts at risk our common home.”

Many of the 265 popes before Francis championed serious causes. Most recently, John Paul II crusaded against communism and beatified Croatia’s Cardinal Alojzije (Aloysius) Stepinac, and Benedict XVI decried moral drift that devalued human lives. Now comes Pope Francis’ determination to help people by the hundreds of millions escape destitution. Excellent. Perhaps during his visit to the United States this coming week he’ll discuss how market economies already have let other hundreds of millions prosper, and bless capitalism for its saving grace. Give credit where credit is due for in this day and age, without capital or money, there can be no welfare and no humanitarian aid. Perhaps, at some point he will publicly reflect on the meeting with Serbia’s Tomislav Nikolic and loudly pronounce that Nikolic’s malicious fodder cannot and will not stain the blessed and saintly soul and deeds of Cardinal Stepinac. That would match the courage and the leadership the Pope has shown in many instances so far. Ina Vukic, Prof. (Zgb);B.A., M.A.Ps. (Syd)

The Shameful Chronicles of 1947 Partition

One of the greatest tragedies of the Indo-Pakistan relationship has significant roots into the people’s polarization during British controlled India. There is not enough ink to bleed for writing on the damage partition has done to our people. While the British held on to subcontinent called otherwise in history as “Jewel in the Crown” they only let it go until there was no choice left.

As a South Asian and Muhajir Pakistani who has her origins on other side of the border-India; despite taking deep pride in my country and its independence my emotions don’t over shed the negatives of subcontinent separation and how it happened. The violent way we were divided continues to overshadow both our nations’ future and that of its people. Permit me to say that millions still grieve, we could separate but minus the violence. Inside this great land; the Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Jains, Christians etc continue to suffer in some way or other due to our bitter legacy.

Today, 68 years post independence what do South Asian people think about this partition. This is a story bringing real life accounts and sentiments of people.

“The heartland for support for Pakistan Movement lay in Uttar Pardesh, which was not included within Pakistan. I cannot believe how my parents were driven out of UP to migrate towards Sindh where I was born. My childhood memories include my mother hiding herself in a teary state in the kitchen or pantry upon receiving some news from her homeland. During her life, she never realized that I knew how she hid her pain, but her pain lives in me.” – Hyderabad, Pakistan

Muslims came back to the Haveli but this time they did not wait for the night and attacked it, but couldn’t enter it still. Then they sent a representative to talk to the Sikhs holed up in the haveli. Sant Gulab Singh refused to accept their conditions that the Sikhs should disarm themselves hence the fight continued for 2 more days. Finally on the last day, Muslims made it clear they would bomb the whole structure if the Sikhs didn’t come out.  After the Sikhs came out, they got surrounded by the large crowd of Muslims. The Sikhs arrived at the sarovar of the local Gurdwara Sahib. The Muslim Pathaans armed with latest weapons surrounded the Sikhs sitting around the sarovar. The Sikhs were chanting “Satnam Siri Vaheguru”. By then about 10,000 Muslims came and had a dozen barbers lined up to cut the hair of Sikhs. The children cried for food and milk, as the young and old were helpless to do anything. The whole scene was a scene from hell.  – Jaipur, India  

“Dekhiye janab, yaa to Hindustan ko Pakistan mein milaa do, nahin to Pakistan ko Hindustan mein mila do. Is batwaare ne bahut nuksaan kiya hai. Waqt agya hai hum sab ko sabaq hasil karlena chahye.”  (Look, either merge India into Pakistan or merge Pakistan into India, this partition has caused us all great long-lasting damage. It’s high time we all need to learn from our mistakes). – Lahore, Pakistan

Hindu caste prejudices are self-explanatory as to why India messed up so badly in Kashmir (its only Muslim-majority state), despite receiving significant support from Kashmiri Muslims in the early days of Indian rule. So basically my people continue to suffer this tug of war between two egoistic countries hell-bent on not letting go of the partition saga? Come to Indian controlled Kashmir to see for real the pitiful lives we live. – Srinagar, India

I don’t have any memory of those sad days being 6 months old when my parents along with my 2 elder brothers were forced to leave our home and hearth from near Rawalpindi. But today am 66 years old and still haunted by the description I overheard of how the train left Rawalpindi for Amritar was stopped at a station called Lala Musa. The driver absconded with the engine leaving the angry mob to unleash on my brethren. Three nights passed with no food nor water. Thankfully a small number of armed army men THE Gurkhas kept the day and night vigil and saved us from the mob’s fury. Till this date I am unable to fathom what was our fault? – West Bengal, India 

“So what choice had we left when they came to drive us out of our homes and burn the buildings, desecrated the graveyard of my seven generations right in front of our eyes. That night was our hell and 67 years have not wiped my mental trauma.  As we fled towards Pakistan amidst the chanting slogans growing louder and louder, I still remember the Hindus repeatedly chanted “Musalmanon ke do hi sthan, Pakistan ya qabristan” (Only two places for Muslims: Pakistan or graveyard). This partition tore my family apart and broke us, completely. –  Karachi, Pakistan

There is still hope for us, there is still an opportunity for us to tend those wounds that we ended up giving ourselves and there is always a tomorrow. I have chosen my road and what about you?

EXCLUSIVE: The Muslim Antichrist System Is Making Its Own Money And Soon No One Can Buy Or Sell Unless They Have The Mark of The Beast

FEATURED OPINION:May.30: This post is one person’s opinion of the situation with Muslims and religious interpretation of events taking place in history at present.

One verse in the Bible packs a prophetic adaessage that when Daniel predicted: “…he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things” (Daniel 11:38) that God meant business, the Antichrist system will focus on hoarding gold to advance his warfare in honor of a god of fortresses (war).

And now, ISIS posters demonstrating the group’s new dinar currency have begun appearing on the streets in Iraqi towns. The announcement was ordered by Caliph Al-Baghdadi in an edict which declared to ban other currencies minted by “the Jews and the Crusaders [Christians]” declaring that buying and selling will soon be prohibited using the crusader’s currency and that gold and silver is prohibited in Islam to be hoarded its strict use is for advancing warfare and Jihad. It is no wonder how this sets the stage for Antichrist who “shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Egyptians and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels”. (v.42-43)

While many would question, rightly, how could ISIS with its small horde gain much power? While ISIS is the richest terror entity in the world, for it to grow into the Antichrist system needs a major leap. It is crucial to keep in mind, this Antichrist system could parallel how Antiochus rose to become the Antichrist of his days:

“For he shall come up and become strong with a small number of people” (v.23)

ISIS is simply the embryo which will eventually permeate the fattened lands.

We have shown how ISIS is growing in lightening speed and how many are joining it giving allegiance to the Caliphate. In Daniel, its clear: “And after the league is made with him he shall act deceitfully, for he shall come up and become strong with a few people.”

All across the Muslim world, they are joining ISIS in “league” and are giving what Islam terms as Bay’at “allegiance” (as John described) as we see here in this video which is a microcosm of what is spreading everywhere as far as even Indonesia:

They repeat aloud: “We give bay’ah (allegiance) to the Caliph of the Muslims, the Prince of the Faithful, to hear and submit …”. They say loudly while they raise their index finger in declaring that God is a singular God, and by that they denounce the Trinity, an aspect of Antichrist (1 John 2:22).

In the future, this will all take place again with another Caliph in which they will put the banner of Islam on their forehead making it law and the new mint has much prophetic significance in which is a pre-cursor to ban buying and selling unless everyone honors the banner and system of Islamic Shari’ah. While ISIS is minting its own currency, gold and silver coinage, the secular world scrambles trying to comprehend the significance and the symbolism behind all the etchings on the coins, yet they simply do not yet comprehend that the secret to unlock it all was already etched in the Bible between twenty to twenty six centuries ago by John the Revelator and Daniel.

The symbols tells much, seven stalks of wheat, the Dome of The Spirits on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, the Muslim calendar, the change of global law, all of which has much prophetic significance as we will explain.

Sketches of the coins appear in the statement released by Islamic State’s treasury depicted a picture of the Al-Aqsa mosque, which is situated on Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Firstly, Islam is truly the antitheses of Christianity. So whatever biblical symbolism we have, the religion of Islam mimics it, reflecting a reverse message in what is considered bibliclly evil is now mandatory holy. So if that the Bible has a seven headed beast lead by an antichrist whom honors his god with gold and silver to initiate war against the strongest fortresses, similarly in Islam, Allah appoints a Caliph, their global leader who will symbolize his kingdom from the Quran as a seven wheat stalks, he mints gold and silver coinage in honor of his god Allah to be spent for warfare to advance the glory of his god Allah forcing everyone to bow and worship him and his image. In fact, such declaration and symbolism is etched in the Quran, Islam’s holy book:

“The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.” (Quran 2:261)

The Seven Wheat Stalks “To spend their wealth [of gold and silver] in the way of Allah” is what Islam declares one of its five major Islamic pillars called Zakat, the mandatory Islamic system to advance warfare through the giving of gold and silver.

And in the Bible, the Antichrist, as Daniel foretold, dedicates gold and silver to his war god:

“Instead of them, he shall honor the god of forces [war]: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things” (Daniel 11:38).

Zakat as we wrote and predicted long ago is the giving of one-fifth of their income is an obligatory pillar of Islam mandated for every Muslim to pay—their gold, and their silver to honor and advance the cause of Allah:

“Zakat is for the poor and the needy, and to free the captives and the debtors, and for the cause of Allah, and [for] the wayfarers; a duty imposed by Allah. Allah is omniscient, most wise” (Qur’an 9:60).

This is not only for the poor, “the cause of Allah” is a tax to expand the rule of Allah by force of war which the Qur’an admonishes Muslims to do:

“And those who hoard up gold and silver and do not spend them in the cause of Allah promise them a painful punishment. One day that [treasure] will be heated up in the fire of hell and their foreheads, their sides, and their backs will be branded with it: This is the treasure that you hoarded up for yourselves. Now taste what you have hoarded” (Qur’an 9:34-35).

Its either you take the mark of Islam on your forehead in order to buy and sell or take the burning fire on your forehead in hell. Gold and silver that comes out of ones own savings must be given, or is acquired through the booty of war for the cause of Allah, should have an amount allotted to share for the advance of Allah’s cause through Jihad War. This is a requirement for every Muslim or else he would be punished for eternity. Such coinage will soon have major demand from Muslims worldwide to purchase their salvation and the Caliphate will be able to hord wealth flowing from all Muslims worldwide since the Islamic jurisprudence determined that Zakat using gold and silver Dirham (Drachma) and Dinar (Denarius) is the standard set even by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Sheikh Yousuf Qaradawi as set in the standards of Islamic Sharia which now mandates the elimination of all paper currency. Muslims worldwide will now have to fulfill a religious mandate which will effect the market as the Muslim system will increase in popularity aiming to hurt the U.S. dollar.

This is confirmed by the news stemming from Nineveh, Babylon in Iraq and any defiance to the edict is subject to severe penalties, even death:

“After opening the House of Zakat on both sides of the right and left of the city of Mosul, the eyes of the Caliph al-Baghdadi began looking forward to the market is full of gold and jewels” says Haitham Sarraj, a  jeweler says adding: “We will pay one-third of the capital of the gold coins that we have. We have been informed by the Islamic state to review the Zakat Chamber … to disclose all the capital that we trade in gold in order to have to pay a third of them under the pretext of Zakat” He concludes by saying, “I’ll pay a third of my money and framed so as not to introduce myself to the Sharia Court, which is often confined between the verdict of lashing or death.”

Zakat is the major means that fuels the war in Islam and is what ISIS is doing:

These actions prompted major traders to avoid the exchange banks fearing of falling into the trap of ISIS which can detect and confiscation of their assets which under the pretext of Zakat can confiscate it to fund for the war in Iraq and Syria.

Since 9-11, even the United States Homeland Security Administration has frozen dozens upon dozens of prominent Muslim Zakat “charities” after it was revealed that a large percentage of their funds were actually going to fund Islamic Jihad. Even Yousef al-Qaradawi, the spiritual head of the Muslim Brotherhood wrote the following regarding zakat:

“The most honorable form of jihad nowadays is fighting for the liberation of Muslim land from the domination of unbelievers, regardless of their religion or ideology and fighting for such purposes in those occupied territories is the way of Allah for which zakat must be spent.”

According to the Prophet Daniel, “He [Antichrist] will speak against the Most High and oppress the saints and try to change the set times and the laws.” (Daniel 7:25)

The new mint reveals much about this Antichrist plan, “will speak against the Most High” which is to blaspheme God and “oppress the saints” be against God’s people, in this case, the “Jews and Crusaders” as declared by the edict sent out by Caliph Baghdadi, and “try to change the set times and the laws” is to change the calendar (set times) and the laws to Shariah. The new mint in big numbers etched with the new dating system, a change ISIS coins are covered with powerful symbols containing esoteric meaning which emphasis on erasing the Christian date (Anno Domini) to the Hijrah Muslim date.

The ISIS decree by the Caliph, the Prince is directed against the Jews and Crusaders:

“In accordance to the direction from the Prince of the Faithful Ibrahim a new mint will be made that is far from the devil’s mint which was imposed upon Muslims which was the reason behind their enslavement, poverty and erosion of the wealth of the Umma (Islamic Nation) which made it [Muslim wealth] become consumed by the Jews and the Crusaders [Christians].”

ISIS-CUrrency-Pages-008-724x1024

English: Islamic State. Declaration on the special mint for the Islamic State (ISIS) …In accordance to the direction from the Prince of the Faithful Ibrahim a new mint will be made that is far from the devil’s mint which was imposed upon Muslims which was the reason behind their enslavement, poverty and erosion of the wealth of the Umma (Islamic Nation) which made it [Muslim wealth] become consumed by the Jews and the Crusaders. Therefore, the Financial Diwan studied the situation and established a complete project to mint new coins from gold and silver …

For years, the prophecy mania crowds said that Antichrist will try to change cosmic laws. But the text infers no such thing. It simply says that he will desire to change two things: times (the accepted world calendar) and laws. The text meant what it says and says what it meant.

If we simply take the text at its face value, we find a simple warning that the Antichrist will attempt to change the times (calendar), legal systems, and constitutions. He will attempt to invoke Islam’s evil laws worldwide to replace every other law and constitution. Only God can change cosmic laws, deifying the devil is blasphemy.

Christians should beware never to give attributes that belong to God and apply them to Satan. The end of days Caliph and Mahdi fits the bill, for he will attempt to change the law by instituting Islamic Sharia law as far as he is able to do so. Who else other than a Muslim would desire to change the “times and laws”? Every Islamic activist organization is crying it—“Islam to the world!” What does this mean? It means they want Islam to replace everything— worship, law, and even the calendar. This activism already exists in every nation of the world. Behind all of the masks, they all desire to replace non-Islamic legal systems with Islamic Sharia law and replace every constitution with the constitution of the caliphate and to force everyone to take their mark on the forehead.

The Islamic “changing set times” is using their calendar which is considered a divine command and is not based on the time that Islam was founded in Mecca and this is crucial since the Islamic dating system began from the time of its conquests in Medina after the Hijra, 622 AD, is considered more significant than the year of Mohammed’s date of birth or death, or that of the first Qur’anic revelation, or even when Islam began because Islam is first and foremost a military enterprise to conquer the entire world.

Why Islam Fits Perfectly

In Daniel 11:37-38, we find an almost perfect summary of Islam. There we read about the Antichrist Empire’s attempt to establish it’s law, honor a war-like god, dishonor women’s rights and encourage the Islamic Zakat (obligatory alms for jihad with gold and silver), all in one concise passage. This amazing passage alone should be enough to convince the most hardened skeptic that the Bible prophesied the coming, bruising and the end revival of Islam before Christ’s glorious coming.


Designs for the new Isis currency.

The secret to unlocking much of the Bible is to look at the duality and type fulfillments. I cannot stress this enough. When you read Scripture, try to find repeated themes and you will discover how rich the Word of God really is. We find this in Daniel 11:21-35 which focuses on the Antichrist (King of the North). In Daniel 11, the King of the North, just like the “little horn” in Daniel 8 expresses a brutal persecution of the Christian and Jewish people and sets up the final abomination that causes desolation:

“His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice.”

Which has multiple meanings, not only desecrating the Temple Mount, but the desecration of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul which has always been considered the Temple of Christendom. (For more detail click here)

“Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation. (v. 31)”

One can imagine an array of abominations which only time will tell.

“With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant (v. 32)”

Christians who fell from the faith (the covenant) have been corrupted as we even have seen in the U.S. how the religion of Antichrist has entered the cathedrals and churches that were designed to worship the God of the Bible.

“but the people who know their God will firmly resist him. Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered. (v. 33)”

These are the die-hards, the Elijah’s, us the believers who continue despite all persecution to affirm the truth and are willing to give our lives as John the Baptist did.

“When they fall, they will receive a little help (v. 34), and many who are not sincere will join them.”

We are joined by traitors who will as the Bible predicted “betray one another”.

“Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified, and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time. (v. 35)”

While we sin, the persecution will be good for us since it will refine us as gold is refined by fire and made spotless through continual confessions and repentance in close communion with Christ through holy communion via His body.

“Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. (v. 36)”

He will blaspheme Christ and the Trinity by denying both the crucifixion and the Trinity (1 John 2:22) but the question is that many Christians who know little about Islam, and who go around giving interpretations, complain that Muslims will never accept such an Antichrist who proclaims himself to be God, asking “how can Antichrist be Muslim when Muslims exclaim, “we do not worship any man, we worship Allah?” Truth is, Muslims deify Muhammad and Mahdi giving them titles that only belong to god: Al-Maqam-Al-Mahmud (The Glorious One), Awal-Khalq-illah (The first of Creation), Muhammad (The Praised One), Al-Insan Al-Kamel (The Perfect Man), Rahmatan-lil-A’alameen (Mercy to All Mankind), Al-rasul Al-A’tham (The Greatest of All sent by God), Shafi (Healer), Munji (Savior), Mahdi (The Guided One/Deliverer), Al-Mustafa Al-Mukhtar (The Chosen One), Amir (The Prince), Khatimun-Nabiyeen (The Seal of Prophets), Al-Hadi (The Guide), Awal (First), Akher (Last), Sayyid Walad Adam (The Leader of The Sons of Adam) and Al-Siraj Al-Muneer (The Luminous One, The Glowing Lamp). Yet at the same time, Daniel 11 clearly says that Antichrist does worship a singular deity, it’s “a god” as Daniel proclaims whom “his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things” (Daniel 11:38) and its clear that he (Antichrist) advances “it’s glory” (the “it” pertains to “his god”) via warfare. What we have is someone who worships a deity while proclaiming himself as deity mimicking Christ and is exactly why only Islam matches perfectly that while they proclaim a god, they also proclaim their head leader also as god:

“He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. (v. 37)”

He will not honor the God of his fathers, the Greeks were Christians and the King of the North who will presume the Caliphate will not honor the true God. Thats one interpretation. The other is that he will not honor the god of his ancestors who worshiped many pagan gods but instead he will honor a single god. Both interpretations are plausible.

“But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. (v. 38)”

In the place of the god/or/gods (depending which translation has it correct) he will honor a single god who is a god of fortresses (war) by introducing gold and silver. “He shall honor a god” is clear in that he not only proclaims himself as god, but also worships a god:

“Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain. (v. 39)”

“A foreign god” “he shall acknowledge” and “advance its glory”, thus he will act (via warfare) he declares against the mightiest nations with a god who is foreign to them (Allah) which he will not only acknowledge but “advance its glory”, of this god via warfare and he will seek to create a Palestinian state.

“At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind”

This is obviously Egypt which has always been known as the king of the south. Turkey will enter Syria and Egypt as did the Ottoman Selim I which today Turkey is wanting to accomplish. Egypt is obvious since the following verse says it:

“He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels”

Then we have:

“He shall enter peaceably, even into the richest places of the province; and he shall do what his fathers have not done, nor his forefathers: he shall disperse among them the plunder, spoil, and riches; and he shall devise his plans against the strongholds, but only for a time.”

Isn’t ISIS dividing plunder? It will grow and it will join with the riches of Turkey and Egypt and the rest of the Muslim League.

The Antichrist rises to power through his popularity with the “small” or poor people of the world, the masses, who respond to his political and economic policies. Or he does it with the help of a “small” elite group of insiders.

The plunder, spoil, and riches (v. 24) would fit Islam perfectly.

Knowing all this is not to pack up and get ready for some quick rapture, pay close attention, again “but the people who know their God will firmly resist him … wise will instruct many … some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified, and made spotless until the time of the end …”

Prophecy is not about knowing end-time, its about becoming spotless, confess your sins, get cleaned up, withstand evil and get ready to FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT. CHRIST IS COMING CHRIST IS COMING CHRIST IS COMING TRULY HE IS COMING MAKE WAY STRAIGHTEN THE PATHWAY THE BRIDEGROOM IS COMING FILL YOUR OIL LAMPS BE AS PURE AS VIRGINS. AS SIMEON AWAITED ALL HIS LIFE FOR THAT DAY WHEN HE SAW AND BEHELD THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD: THE DAY IS COMING WHEN WE ALL WILL BEHOLD AND SEE HIM COMING IN THE CLOUDS, GLORIOUS IN HIS APPAREL, MIGHTY TO SAVE, WITH WRATH HE WILL COME TO SEEK VENGEANCE FOR THE BLOOD OF THE SAINTS WHO COME WITH HIM FROM HEAVEN. AMEN.

Procession of Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Secular Power II…

Christianity enjoys a dramatic and chromatic history. Although events in Jerusalem set the stage for the growth and spread of this religion, Rome became the sine qua non for the religion in the western hemisphere and concomitantly in the world. Subsequent to the rise and establishment of Christianity in Rome, which occurred in 325 AD, Roman Catholics enjoyed an exclusive monopoly of the faith in Europe, until the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century.

History records 16th century Europe as a dynamic period well-known for the “Renaissance” “age of enlightenment” “age of discovery” as well as for the bifurcation Christianity into Catholics and Protestants.

The Roman Catholic Church and the Protestant denominations are the lenses by which the western hemisphere generally experience and understand Christianity, but Christianity in the east offers a parallel developmental process. Orthodox Christianity a/k/a the Eastern Oriental Orthodox Christian Communion is observed in countries of the Middle East, Africa and Asia. This Eastern Orthodox line of the Christian faith predates the Church of Rome by 300 plus years. As such, it was the members of the Eastern Oriental Orthodox Christian Communion who represented the growing Christian community that experienced the cruel and odious machinations of the Roman Empire as they persecuted Christians. It was not until 313 AD, by way of the Treaty of Milan, that Rome’s persecution of Christians came to an end. Subsequently, in 325 AD, Roman Emperor Constantine convened the first ecumenical council, (Council of Nicaea) that resulted in Rome’s 1200 year domination of Christianity. Emperor Constantine established Rome as the headquarters of the Church in the west, while positioning Constantinople as the capital of the Faith in the east.

Emperor Constantine was a self-proclaimed convert to Christianity following his vision of the cross during his successful military campaign to unify Rome. The emperor credited his military victory to this vision of the cross which reportedly inspired him to accept the Faith. Emperor Constantine’s objective for convening the first ecumenical council was to consolidate the growing Christian religion under the domination of Rome. This was achieved following the Council of Nicaea. The Eastern Orthodox bishops that did not submit to the domination of Rome were branded heretical and excluded from remaining council proceedings and all future ecumenical councils. The irony of a new convert to Christianity having the capacity to convene a synod of African, Asian and Middle Eastern bishops and require them to submit to Rome’s political domination and ecclesiastical hegemony is profound. Nevertheless, the Council of Nicaea is etched in the stone of ancient history as the advent of the Roman Catholic Church in Europe. By way of military campaign’s Rome conquered Europe and the rest of the known world and proselytized the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Church as well as imposing the Greco-Roman historical “master” narrative. Rome enjoyed an exclusive monopoly over the Christian religion until the 16th century when the Faith was bifurcated into Catholics and Protestants.

Prior to the advent of Roman Catholicism, Christianity was eclectic and diverse in representation and expression in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. As the new “fulfillment theology,” it was initially proselytized by the priests of the Magi, the first worshippers of the infant Christ. Following there (Magi) visitation with offerings of Frankincense, Myrrh and gold, each returned to their respective communities and proselytized Faith. Three hundred years hence, when Emperor Constantine appropriated Christianity on behalf of the military expansion of Rome, he consolidated the Faith under one religious creed and absolute earthy authority… According to the proceedings of the first ecumenical council, the bishops that resisted the domination of Rome were excommunicated from further council proceedings and excluded from all future ecumenical councils. In particular, Ethiopian bishops did not agree to Roman domination and they (Ethiopian Bishops) also had irreconcilable ecclesiastical differences from Rome, relative to the nature of Jesus Christ, the Trinitarian doctrine, and the infallibility of the pope, among others.

The various controversies that attended the Council of Nicaea are recorded in history as the “east vs. west schism.” It is the objective of the work to explore parallel and divergent development of Christianity in both the east and west… In addition to this east – west dichotomy, early Christianity played a consequential role in the military conquests and growth of the Roman Empire. Imperial Rome ruled the entire known world under Christendom until the growth of Islam was able to successfully challenge the land holdings of the Holy Roman Empire, during the 8th century in Egypt, Jerusalem and Spain… Nevertheless, imperial Rome and the Holy See continued their efforts to “discover,” conquer and redefine the world, albeit now with a level of competition in some regions.

Specifically, Spain would be ruled for 700 years by the Moors until Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand returned the country to Catholic authority in 1492. The Spanish royalty with the authority pope financed the exploits of Christopher Columbus, and subsequent discovery of the “New World.”

Jerusalem was briefly reclaimed by the Knights Templar under the auspices of the papacy, for less than a century. Egypt on the other hand was lost to Islam and absorbed by ethnic Arabs in the name of Islam.
The Papacy in conjunction with various European kings and queens continued their concerted efforts to “discover” and conquer lands occupied by so-called “heathens” and bring them under the rule of Christendom, or to reclaim the territories (such as the Holy Land and Spain) that had been lost to them. Muslim’s conquered Jerusalem during the 8th century and retained control until the 11th century when it was briefly recaptured during the Crusades under the auspices of the pope. In 1492 Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Spain, again in conjunction with the papacy, recaptured Spain from the Moors who had ruled it for seven centuries. Only months after Christopher Columbus returned to Europe from his initial voyage to the “New World,” the Spanish-born Pope Alexander VI gave Spain and Portugal a head-start in their quest for domination over these newly discovered regions. The Pope decreed that all lands discovered west of a meridian 100 leagues west of the Cape Verde Islands would belong to Spain while new lands discovered east of that line would belong to Portugal. This papal instruction also specified that all lands already under the control of a “Christian prince” would remain under that same control.

This established line made Portugal angry. King John II (the nephew of Prince Henry the Navigator) negotiated with King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain to move the line further to the west. King John’s rationale to Ferdinand and Isabella was that the Pope’s line extends all around the globe, thus limiting Spanish influence in Asia. On June 7, 1494 Spain and Portugal met at Tordesillas, Spain and signed a treaty that moved the line 270 leagues west, to 370 leagues west of Cape Verde. This new line gave Portugal, more claim to South America, yet also provided Portugal with automatic control over most of the Indian Ocean. While it would be several hundred years before the line of the Treaty of Tordesillas could be accurately determined (due to problems determining longitude), Portugal and Spain kept to their sides of the line quite well. Portugal ended up colonizing places like Brazil in South America and India and Macau in Asia. Brazil’s (Portuguese-speaking population is a result of the Treaty of Tordesillas). Portugal and Spain ignored the instruction from the Pope in enacting the treaty, but all was reconciled when Pope Julius II agreed to the change in 1506. Hence, the Papacy divided the “New World” between Spain and Portugal, as the first Colonial “masters” of the world.

Other European powers of the day such as Briton, France, Germany, Denmark, and the Dutch, had no land holdings in the “New World” and so conspired with “pirates” to raid the territories and cargoes of Portugal and Spain. Ultimately by way of the Protestant Reformation the dissident European powers rejected the authority of the papacy. In the wake of the unfolding Protestant Reformation during the 16th century in England, the bifurcated European Christian powers rivaled each other as they scrambled for “New World” territories to derive wealth and power from the free labor of enslaved Africans. Going forward, the dynamic between Catholics and Protestants became the backdrop and design of the post 16th century world, particularly in the context of the expansion into the western hemisphere. In the spirit of the original Christian teachings Catholics and Protestants have essentially promoted “religious tolerance” among themselves apart from a few fascinating and violent exceptions. In the secular framework, among the competing European powers have over the centuries collaborated and cooperated, despite their colorful internal rivalries and wars. Ultimately, the competing European secular powers united around their shared objectives to conquer and control the “New World” and the continent of Africa.

The respective European colonialists respected each others holdings and economic interests in the “New World” during the trans-Atlantic trade of enslaved Africans, and treated there “human” property similarly. Following the end of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, these European powers cooperated and conspired as they undertook what is known in contemporary history as the “Scramble for Africa” (1876 – 1912). Subsequent to the Scramble, the Berlin Conference (1884) divided the territorial spoils of Africa, by petitioning, creating random boundaries and assigning various countries to the European “New World” colonial masters. The Monroe Doctrine (20th century) ensures that the former colonial masters in the countries of the “New World” would remain in place, while promoting the virtues of self-determination for indigenous populations.

European secular governments, in the context of the “Western World,” have a compatible geo-political vision. Although the European governments separate religion from state, they all espouse the Judeo-Christian ethic, in terms of Catholic and Protestant renditions of Christianity. The religious leaders of the western world, vis-à-vis, the pope, archbishop of Canterbury, and the respective bishops that lead the faithful in denominational Christianity generally share a coherent world view. Both the religious leadership and the secular leadership in the western world have demonstrated a symbiosis throughout the history of the Roman Catholic and Protestant global narrative. There is intriguing irony, though with respect to the colonization of the African continent by secular European powers, and the role of Ethiopia in the context of the ancient east – west schism. Specifically, Ethiopia is the only country on the continent of Africa that was never under colonial rule. Although, ancient Ethiopia has a well documented Judeo-Christian heritage and tradition that predated the advent of the Church of Rome by more than three centuries, pre-Roman Christianity was branded heretical.

Catholics and Protestants currently share the world Christian demographic which numbers just above two billion, and about 15 to 20 percent of the world’s Christian populations are observers of Eastern Orthodox Christianity. The accommodation between Catholics and Protestants is organic as they both observe similar holidays and Holy days, and they both use the Gregorian calendar. On the other hand, Orthodox Christians use the Julian calendar which observes Christmas Day, for example, on January 6, of the year.

Over the centuries there has been much speculation “what if” Ethiopia’s biblical canon, and Judeo-Christian narrative was not excluded from the popular western canon of scripture… Due to Rome’s domination of the growing Christian religion, the Greek translation of the original Hebrew scripture was translated into Latin. This translation became the book that converted European countries to Roman Catholicism, under the authority of the papacy. Following the Protestant Reformation, it was translated into English and made accessible to the common person, thus breaking Roman monopoly of the Christian word. From King Henry VIII, to the King James verson, the English translation proliferated throughout Europe and the known world. What if the fathers of the Roman Church had retained all the books in the original Hebrew Bible, as opposed to removing 15 books from the 81 books? In both instances (secular and religious) it can be persuasively argued that Ethiopia was indomitable and unique…

At the point of the first ecumenical council (325 AD), the Ethiopian Orthodox Church had already established 81 books of Judeo-Christian scripture. It is not hard to imagine that the Roman Catholic Church decided to include 66 Books in the Latin translation because that choice offered an introductory narrative for establishing Roman Catholic dominance of Christianity. It is possible that if Ethiopia’s lineage had not been unequivocally disconnected from the Roman Christian dispensation, the economic, social and cultural subjugation of African people (imposing the master narrative) may have been impossible to achieve… Instead, the Roman Catholic Church formulated a revisionist Greco-Roman narrative that embodied, and established Rome’s religious and secular origins and world view…This may have made the economic, social and cultural conquests, subjugation of African people, and imposing the master narrative difficult, if not impossible to achieve… The Roman Catholic Church fathers and historians formulated a revisionist Greco-Roman historical narrative that embodied, promoted and established Rome’s religious as well as secular origins and world view…

The Greek poet and historian Homer, in his classic book The Iliad, was unequivocal as to whom he revered and received great learning from. Homer credited the Egyptians for much of his education, and referred to Ethiopia, and Ethiopians with divine attributes, vis-à-vis, the land of Punt (Land of God)… Some suggest that if the Ethiopian component was included in the Latin Canon of Scripture it would have made it difficult, if not impossible to impose a multi-race narrative and social construct contrived to position Africans, and black people as less than human. The advent of the “Negro” as an inferior race of humans, the trans-Atlantic trade of enslaved Africans would likely not have been industrialized and institutionalized to the extent that it was.

Instead the ancient east – west schism and race based dichotomy was established and institutionalized. Hence, the religious world and the secular world continue their precarious interface…

‘ Procession of Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Secular Power ‘

Abounding complexities underpinning our modern world may be approaching the point of global conflagration as the geo-political hegemony of the West, is challenged by indigenous regional people’s seeking self-determination, elected government and frequently seeking separation from western influences: 

The unfolding political facts on the ground in target countries, the “Arab spring” presently overwhelming the Middle East and North Africa are classic examples of proliferating violence. A compelling argument can be made that virtually all regions of the world are experiencing turmoil of one sort or another… Beyond the myriad influences that inform and animate this calamitous international environment of conflicting nation states and insurgent forces, is a religious dimension which is virulent, ancient and ignominious. Religion has often played a distinct role in the subtext of military and imperialistic undertakings by secular governments throughout history. Specifically, the juxtaposition and popular narrative between Judaism, Christianity and Islam continues to convince their respective adherents of their incompatibility with others. Although the concept of “religious tolerance” continues to be promoted broadly over the centuries, engaging it has proven to be utterly insufficient. Unfortunately the quality and scope of “tolerance” can be undermined by the invisible energy of arrogance as these ideas may be organically connected. Perhaps the concept of “religious tolerance” can be replaced with the concept of “religious appreciation,” going forward. The appreciation of another person’s religion or other differences does not suggest acceptance of the others beliefs or values. Religious appreciation implies acknowledgement, respect, mutual co-existence, and religious appreciation embodies ecumenism, that noble quality in human beings.

With religious juxtapositions in the popular imagination as a context, local governments as well as geo-political players and insurgents vociferously engage their political, economic and military objectives. Although the religious juxtapositions are individually challenged within their respective institutions by sectarian strife, their internal challenges are generally ignored in favour of pointing an accusatory finger at another religion… None of the three religions of Abraham, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, can tout their theological purity. Accordingly, contemporary expressions and observances of these three great religions are based on revisionist histories which have caused schisms in each religion along sectarian lines.

Currently the only unequivocal connection that these religions have is a shared past in their collective assertion that the prophet Abraham is the patriarch of these religions. Therefore the historical testaments of the three monotheist religions is a familial relationship by way of their acknowledged patriarch. Moreover, the theology of monotheism asserts that all of humanity is children of God: The Genesis narrative observed and articulated offers a familial account regarding the advent of humanity. Thus the essence of disagreements among the three Faiths can be viewed in the framework of family dynamics… Clearly, much was lost in translating the historical procession of the religions of Abraham, from Judaism, to Christianity to Islam. The political facts on the ground in regions impacted by these conflicts are rooted in popular revisionist renditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Religious hyperbole associated with these conflagrations maybe better understood by examining the historical procession of the Abrahamic religions and generating a broader appreciation and understanding of the dynamic factors that currently account for these human affairs/events in the world…

The earliest historical records of human society indicate an inclination (if not proclivity) in the human imagination toward a higher and invisible spiritual power… Peoples in all regions of the world in the earliest times organized their communities around the place of worship. The local place of worship and its priesthood became the center of early societies and communities. Consequently, religious leaders often became the organic rulers of fledgling communities and thriving societies until the advent of the “king” and secular power, authority and government. The initial rivalry between priest and king morphed into a precarious courtship, and frequently “marriage” between the “church” and “state.” The church and state relationship remained in place for millennia, until the advent of the America and federalism, which proclaimed the separation of church and state. The separation of church and state idea was a product of The Age of Enlightenment composed in the Protestant Reformation, the rise of objective science and reason, and the age of discovery in the western world… The Protestant Reformation bifurcated Christianity into Catholics and Protestants, while the industrial development in the western world generated enormous economic wealth in Europe and America. Ultimately, secular power in the context of the military and economic component eclipsed influences of the church and religion in the material world. It could be argued that the church still enjoys a clear monopoly of the spiritual concerns. Nevertheless, the relationship between church and state remains a dynamic and intriguing enterprise as they modulate the status quo from respective vantage points… Secular public and private powers in the course of achieving relative military victories, territory, resources and raw material often proposes a religious context to their geo-political objectives. In ancient Rome at the advent of Roman Catholicism in the 4th century Emperor Constantine utilized the “Faith” as a theme for his numerous military forays and conquests of the known world. The emperor’s military campaigns were done in the name of advancing Christendom throughout the world. The Christian Crusades authorized by the papacy during the 12th century established the Knights Templar, a military wing of Christendom, mandated to reclaim the holy land that fell to Islam in the 8th century. Interestingly enough President George W. Bush, in 2003 initially dubbed his intervention into Iraq, as a “crusade” which resurrected memories of that historical west vs. east military confrontation between Christianity and Islam. More recently, in the wake of the “Arab Spring” which began in Tunisia with a popular “revolution,” North Africa and the Middle East became active theatres of military conflict, unconventional and asymmetrical warfare, highlighting the ancient Christian and Muslim juxtaposition. The adversarial nature characterizing the current relationship between Judaism, Christianity and Islam thus has its origins in antiquity. This religious dichotomy continues to find its way into the popular narrative and backdrop of the competing geo-political objectives in target countries and regions.

The escalating conflict in the Middle East is perhaps a classic example of what happens when artificial and arbitrary boundaries are imposed on regions as they begin to unravel… While western powers continue to entertain strategic and tactical operations to contain the advances of indigenous Islamic military forces, others assert that the western powers can only forestall that which is inevitable… The Middle East as we know it, in terms of national boundaries of their respective people’s of the region, came about 100 years ago based on political and economical design by the British and the French foreign ministries. This scenario was the outcome of the exploits of “Lawrence of Arabia,” Napoleon and the French Foreign Legion. The British and French segmentation of the region was codified following WWI, when the authority for countries comprising the Middle East was divided between Briton and France. Now these artificial boundaries are deteriorating, strongman rule enabled by western powers has waned under the force of organic and indigenous uprisings, and the overall influence that the western developed countries enjoyed with “strongman” regional leaders may no longer be relevant.

Both secular and religious leadership can be cited for engaging in the diabolical and abominable behaviour over the centuries… But justice is anticipated in the secular as well as the spiritual world. It was Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who posited that the moral arch of the universe is long but it bends toward justice. The question whether there will be appropriate accountability remains an open question. Based on end time eschatology, accountability and ultimate justice will prevail… Increasing public opinion argues that world events as they are currently unfolding have profound biblical implications going forward…
