“… out of Tziyon will go forth Torah, the word of ADONAI from Yerushalayim.”
(Isaiah 2:3)

If your life is not in jeopardy for what you believe, you’re probably on the wrong side!
“Indeed, all who want to live a godly life united with the Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted.” (2Tim 3:12)
It is what you actually believe that determines how you walk out your faith, “but avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, quarrels and fights about the Torah; because they are worthless and futile.” (Titus 3:9)

Please Note: I believe that we are now entering the Tribulation Period of human history. I believe that the Biblical Antichrist is the same person as the Islamic Mahdi, or Twelfth Imam. I believe that the Islamic Caliphate is the one-world government and Radical Islam the one-world religion of the Biblical Tribulation Period.

Thus says ADONAI: “When I tell the wicked person, ‘Wicked person, you will certainly die’; … if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he doesn't turn from his way; then he will still die guilty, but you will have saved your own life.” (Ezekiel 33:8-9) Wicked person, you have been warned and I am not responsible for your death.

I am the Watchman;
Hear my Shofar

Watchman blowing a shofarThe word of Yehovah came to me: “Son of man, speak to your people; say to them, ‘Suppose I bring the sword on a country, and the people of that country take one of their men and appoint him their watchman. Now if, upon seeing the sword coming against that country, he blows the shofar and warns the people; then, if the sword comes and takes away someone who heard the sound of the shofar but paid no attention to it, the responsibility for that person‘s death will be his own — he heard the shofar but paid no attention, so the responsibility for his death is his own; whereas if he had paid attention, he would have saved his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the shofar, so that the people are not warned; and then the sword comes and takes any one of them, that one is indeed taken away in his guilt, but I will hold the watchman responsible for his death.’

Likewise you, son of man — I have appointed you as watchman for the house of Isra'el. Therefore, when you hear the word from My mouth, warn them for Me. When I tell the wicked person, ‘Wicked person, you will certainly die’; and you fail to speak and warn the wicked person to leave his way; then that wicked person will die guilty; and I will hold you responsible for his death. On the other hand, if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he doesn’t turn from his way; then he will still die guilty, but you will have saved your own life.” [Ezekiel 33:1-9]

The Rise of Islam

Pick up any newspaper or magazine, or turn on any television or radio news broadcast, and within a very few minutes you will find a reference to “Islam, one of the world’s three great monotheistic religions,” as if Islam has much in common with Judaism and Christianity! You will even hear so-called “Christian” and even Jewish leaders suggesting that the “god” of Islam is the same as the God of Avraham, Yitz'chak, and Ya`akov, the God of the Bible and the only true God. Nothing could be further from the truth. Islam has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Judaism and Christianity. Muslims are not our friends, and they will never be our friends. Islam is now, and shall be until Messiah returns, totally incompatible with either Judaism or Christianity.

The Origin of Islam
by Grady L. Davis
Chairman of Directed Individualized Studies
Golden State School of Theology, Oakland, CA

Mohammad was born in Arabia in the city of Mecca in 570 CE. He came from a prominent and highly respected family. When he was 25 he married a wealthy widow named Khadija. Their marriage was a happy one although only one of their children, Fatima, lived to maturity. Mohammad spent most of his time in solitary meditation. He began to have many disturbing visions. Once he believed he saw the angel Gabriel. …

Six Doctrines of Islam

The basic doctrines that every Muslim must believe, no matter where he lives, or to which particular Islamic sect he belongs.

Five Pillars of Islam

Besides the six doctrines to be believed, there are five (seven, actually) duties to be performed by every Muslim.

Major Sects of Islam

There are three major sects of Islam, briefly defined here.

Minor Sects of Islam

In addition to the three major sects of Islam, Sufism and Black Muslims are considered minor sects of Islam.

The Vocabulary of Islam

A glossary of common Islamic words and phrases.

The Adhan

The Islamic call to prayer that Baraq Hussein has called “the most beautiful sound on earth,” and what it really means.

Islam and the Bible

The Bible is one of the many “holy” books recognized by Islam. It is, however, superseded by the Qur’an. Islam denies that Yeshua (“Isa”) is the Son of God, although it describes the virgin birth in a passage similar to Luke 1:26-38. The Qur’an calls “Isa” a prophet, equal to Abraham, Jonah, and others, but places him far below Mohammad. All other things attributed to Yeshua as being God are denied by Islam.

Allah is Not God

Proof from comparing the Qur'an to the Bible that Allah is absolutely, positively not the God of the Bible.

The “Jesus” of Islam

by Mufti A.H. Elias

“Muslims do believe that ‘Isa’ [Yeshua] … was sent down as a Prophet of Allah, but he is not God or Lord, nor the son of God. Muslims do not believe that Isa …, also known as Jesus by Christians and others, is dead or was ever crucified. We believe that he was raised to heaven and is there, and will descend at the appointed time, end all wars, and bring peace to the world. Like Jesus …, Muhammad … is also a Prophet and Messenger. Muhammed … is the last Prophet, though, and there is none after him. Hence, Islam is the last religion, complete, with the Holy Qur'an as the unchanged and perfect word of God for over 1400 years, as God promised to preserve it till the last day for all of humankind, unlike sacred texts of other religions which have multiple versions and are ‘revised’ periodically. God, or Allah in Arabic, is Divine and Supreme Being and Creator.”

The Twelfth Imam

Islam is anxiously awaiting the return of the Twelfth Imam (Mahdi) of the Islamic Caliphate to restore the Caliphate and establish the rule of Islam and the worship of Allah throughout the entire world. The description of this individual in the Qur'an and other Islamic literature exactly matches the Bible’s description of the Antichrist.

Messiah and the Mahdi

This article briefly discusses the role of the Islamic “messiah” and why I believe that his rise to power is imminent.

The Qur’an

Literally, “that which is often read, recited, or rehearsed.” The religious text or Law of Islam; falsely claimed by Islam to be the final and complete inspired word of “God” transmitted to the “prophet” Mohammad by the angel Gabriel. … This is what the God of the Bible says about the Qur'an: “But the prophet (Mohammad) who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods (Allah), that prophet shall die.” [Deuteronomy 18:20] …

Palestinian National Covenant

The Palestinian National Covenant-- the “Constitution” of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (P.L.O.)-- simply does not permit the existence of the State of Israel. Therefore, there can only be peace in Aretz Yisrael when either the P.L.O. or Israel is totally eliminated from Ha'Aretz. …

Hamas Charter

Hamas’ targeting of Jewish civilians is part and parcel of its mission-- as set out in its governing Covenant or Charter-- to "fight the Jews and kill them" and to replace Israel with an Islamic state. According to the Charter, any type of peace negotiation and diplomatic end to the conflict "stand in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement." Hamas is the duly-elected government of the self-proclaimed, though in reality non-existent, “State of Palestine.”

Petition to Protect the Holy Land

With the false hope for Israel-Palestinian peace provided by the “Road Map,” some serious concerns remain that affect not only Israel, but the entire Christian world as well. Israel will now be pressured to relinquish control of many areas, including those that contain Christian holy sites. This situation could be disastrous for both Israel and world Christianity. …

The War Between the God of Israel and the god of Islam

by Joel Chernoff, General Secretary, Messianic Jewish Alliance of America

“…The good news is that God Himself will intervene and break the back of the Moslem faith. The G-d of Israel will confront the armies of Islam supernaturally and send them the message that the God of Israel is God and not the god of Islam. Not only that, but Isaiah 19:23-25 states that the Arab world will turn and follow the God of Israel and that they, with Israel, will become unified in the worship of the God of Israel ...”

  1. Islam is decidedly not a “peaceful religion.” It is not a “religion” at all in the Western sense of the word. Islam is the very personification of demonic possession, a Godless, sociopathic, sadistic, totally intolerant, violent, homicidal, Satan-worshiping culture whose stated purpose-- which is required by the Qur'an for all who claim to be Muslims (including the so-called, but non-existent “moderate Muslims”)-- is world domination and the extermination of every single person who does not submit to Satan’s rule! Accordingly, Islam should not be granted the protection of the First Amendment of the US Constitution, but should be outlawed in America for the terrorist culture that it is. “Allah” absolutely is NOT the God of the Bible. “Allah” is a demon (Gal. 4:8; Lev. 17:7; Deut. 32:17; Ps. 106:37; 1Cor. 10:20), perhaps the Prince of Demons, Lucifer himself. And for any Muslim who happens to read this page, I already have about a dozen fatwas against me, so don’t bother issuing one more. [BACK]
