*This is something that I have copied from a new friends wall. This will be something that we need to know for the beginning of this new year!!!!****Please read and let me know if you read it.*


I was born and raised as Muslim. My whole family is still Muslim. I know every genetic code of Muslim. I know Islamic brain. I live and breath with them. I am an insider. I left Islam when I understood that Islam is a sick and evil religion. The following are the Islamic message to the West.

To the infidels of the West:

The Constitution for the new Islamic Republics of EuroArabia and AmerIslamia is under construction.

We will fight the infidel to death.

- Meanwhile American laws will protect us.
- Democrats and Leftist will support us.
- N.G.O.s will legitimize us.
- C.A.I.R. will incubate us.
- The A.C.L.U. will empower us.
- Western Universities will educate us.
- Mosques will shelter us
- O.P.E.C. will finance us
- Hollywood will love us.
- Kofi Annan and most of the United Nations will cover our asses.

Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Indonesia and even from India to the US and to the other Western countries. They will go to the West for education in full scholarship. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children’s educations and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools.

We will use your welfare system. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad.

We will take the advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion. When time comes, we will stab them in the back. We will say one thing on the camera and teach another thing to our children at home. We will give subliminal messages to our children to uphold Islam at any cost. Our children in America will always care more about Islamic Country’s interest than US interest.

We will teach our children Islamic supremacy from the very childhood. We will teach them not to compromise with Infidel. Once we do that from the very early age our children won’t hesitate to be martyr. We will take over the Europe first and then US will be the next. We already have a solid ground in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, and now in the US.

Our children will marry Caucasian in Europe and in America. We will mixed with intricate fabric of the Western society but still will remember to Jihad when time comes. Who are we?

We are the “sleeper cells”.

We will raise our children to be loyal to Islam and Mohammad only. Everything else is secondary.

At the time of the real fight we will hold our own children as our armor. When American or Israeli troops shoot at us the world will be watching. Imagine,… Imagine the news in the world “Death of Muslim babies by infidels”.

We know CNN, ABC, CBS are broadcasting live. Al-Jazeera will pour gasoline on the fire. The news will spread like wildfire. “Americans killed 6 babies, 10 babies”. “Jews killed two women”,

Keep your Nukes in your curio cabinets. Keep your aircraft carrier or high-tech weaponry in the showcase. You can't use them against us because of your own higher moral standard. We will take the advantage of your higher moral standard and use it against you. We won’t hesitate to use our children as suicide bomber against you.

Visualize the news flash all over the world, …Moslem mother is sobbing, ….crying. Her babies are killed by Jews and Americans, the whole world is watching live. Hundreds of millions of Muslims all around the world are boiling. They will march through Europe. We will use our women to produce more babies who will in turn be used as armor/shield. Our babies are the gift from Allah for Jihad.

West manufactures their tanks in the factory. We will manufacture our military force by natural means, by producing more babies. That is the way it is cheaper.

You infidels at this site cannot defeat us. We are 1.2 billion. We will double again. Do you have enough bullets to kill us?

On the camera:

- We will always say, “Islam is the religion of Peace.”
- We will say, “Jihad is actually inner Jihad.”
- Moderate Muslim will say there is no link between Islam and Terrorism and the
West will believe it because the West is so gullible.
- Moderate Muslim all over the world will incubate Jihadist by their talk by defending Islam.
- Using Western Legal system we will assert our Sharia Laws, slowly but surely.
- We will increase in number. We will double again.

You will be impressed when you meet a moderate Muslim personally. As your next-door neighbor, coworker, student, teacher, engineer, professionals you may even like us. You will find us well mannered, polite, humble that will make you say, “wow, Muslims are good and peaceful people”, But, we will stab you in your back when you are sleeping as we did on 911.

There will be more 911 in Europe and in America. We will say, “We do not support terrorism but America got what it deserved.”

Muslims, CAIR, ISNA, MPAC and other international Islamic Organization will unite. We will partner with Leftist, ACLU, with Koffi Annan, and the UN, and if we have to then even with France. Fasten your seatbelt. The war of civilizations has just begun.

We will recite Quran and say Allah-Hu-Akbar before beheading infidels, as we have been doing it. We will video tape those and send it to all infidels to watch. They will surrender - ISLAM means surrender.

We will use your own values of kindness against you.

You are destined to lose.



The purpose of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers is to perfect you...to fully equip you as a DISCIPLE of Jesus Christ...not so that you can sit in your church Sunday after Sunday like a "bump on a log".

God's purpose is that you walk out of your fully equipped to go back into your sphere of influence...your home, school, work place...full of the power and authority of the Holy Spirit to spread the Gospel, to break the devil's power, to cast out devils, to lay hands on the sick, and to MAKE OTHER DISCIPLES who will do the same!

Wow do you realize what's happening to you and I when we are under a ministry year after year? We're BECOMING DISCIPLES...DISCIPLES OF CHRIST.

As a DISCIPLE of Jesus Christ, you are a FULL-TIME minister! Your main profession is not being a housewife, police officer, doctor, teacher, secretary, carpenter, accountant, farmer, or retired. The world system with the devils help has deceived the body of Christ. We need to get our eye off of the worlds business. Get your eyes off the tools of your trade.Our main profession being a Disciple... a LIVING WITNESS... of Jesus Christ. Everything else is secondary.*

*Our main goal... our main purpose as a DISCIPLE...must be to build the kingdom of God upon the earth. Our desires must be focused upon fulfilling the commission Christ has given you of "MAKING DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS."*


*We need he Holy Spirit to breathe upon us, as He did upon the early Church, to shake us out of the traditions that are binding and holding us back. We need the Holy Spirit to give us a clear vision...to cut through our man-made ideas and methods of doing things, so that we can understand what God has called us to do.*

*We need a fresh Baptism of the Holy Spirit that will place a burning desire and commitment deep into our spirits,that will make us willing to set our minds to fulfill God's plan and purpose regardless of the personal cost to us.*

*We could be in the final days just before Jesus' returns. We don't have time to play games. Our Churches need to face the problems and quit covering them up. And we can no longer set around and do something about them. We need to get these things out in the open and face them head on in the strength of the Name that is above every Name...Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God!*

*We can never reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ from behind the pulpit. Never! We must have a breakthrough in our environment...in the church...where members of the Body of Christ have a fresh vision of the work God has called them to do, and where they respond in single-minded obedience.*

*Throughout the world, God is raising up a mighty end time army of men and women...who are full of power and anointing of the Holy Spirit Who are equipped with signs and wonders as their credentials, who are united together for one specific purpose
...to proclaim the Gospel of the kingdom of God in a DEMONSTRATION of power throughout the nations of the world!

You are part of this end time army.

**So let us all leave 2011 behind and start the New Year out by becoming Mighty Warriors for our Lord Jesus Christ!**

*God's Plan Is People Power!*

*As a church body we are bound by "spiritual ignorance." Our pews are filled with converts....followers of Jesus Christ...who do not understand what it means to be a DISCIPLE of Jesus Christ. They haven't been taught there is a price to pay. They haven't been taught that to be a DISCIPLE they must give up their lives and follow CHRIST in single-minded obedience. They haven't been taught they are responsible for doing the work of the ministry.*

**God's plan is PEOPLE POWER. He doesn't work through structures. He works through men and women. The God that we serve is a God of purpose. He has placed apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers in the Church to build up and fully equip the saints to be DISCIPLES...to do the work of the ministry.**(Ephesians 4:11-12)

***Who did Paul say was going to do the work?
***Who did he say was going to do the ministering?

The SAINTS...God's consecrated people! God has planned for all the members of the Body of Christ to do the work of the ministry, not just the preachers standing behind the pulpit.



The purpose of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers is to pertect you...to fully equip you as a DISCIPLE of Jesus Christ...not so that you can sit in your church Sunday after Sunday like a "bump on a log".

God's purpose is that you walk out of your fully equipped to go back into your sphere of influence...your home, school, work place...ful of the power and authorityof the Holy Spirit to spread the Gospel, to break the devil'spower, to cast out devils, to lay hands on the sick, and to MAKE OTHER DISCIPLES who will do the same!

A new minister was walking with an older,more seasoned minister in the garden one day.

Feeling a bit insecure about what God had for him to do,he was asking the older preacher for some advice.

The older preacher walked up to a rosebush and handed the young preacher a rosebud and told him to open it without tearing off any petals.

The young preacher looked in disbelief at the older preacher and was trying to figure out what a rosebud could possibly have to do with his wanting to know the will of God for his life and ministry.

But because of his great respect for the older preacher, he proceeded to try to unfold the rose, while keeping every petal intact.

It wasn't long before he realized how impossible this was to do.

Noticing the younger preacher's inability to unfold the rosebud without tearing it,
the older preacher began to recite the following poem...

"It is only a tiny rosebud, a flower of God's design;But I cannot unfold the petals
with these clumsy hands of mine."

"The secret of unfolding flowers Is not known to such as I. GOD opens this flower so easily, but in my hands they die."

"If I cannot unfold a rosebud, this flower of God's design, then how can I have the wisdom To unfold this life of mine?"

"So I'll trust in God for leading each moment of my day. I will look to God for guidance in each step along the way."

"The path that lies before me,Only my Lord and Savior knows. I'll trust God to unfold the moments, just as He unfolds the rose."

Please share this poem with a friend if you enjoyed being reminded to let go.... and let God unfold your life. Have a Great Day!

Matthew:2:1: Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Matthew:2:2: Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Matthew:2:3: When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

Matthew:2:4: And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

Matthew:2:5: And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,

Matthew:2:6: And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

Matthew:2:7: Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

Matthew:2:8: And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

Matthew:2:9: When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

Matthew:2:10: When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

Matthew:2:11: And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshiped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

Matthew:2:12: And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

Matthew:2:13: And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

Matthew:2:14: When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

Matthew:2:15: And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

Matthew:2:16: Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.

Matthew:2:17: Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying,

Matthew:2:18: In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Matthew:2:19: But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

Matthew:2:20: Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child's life.

Matthew:2:21: And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.

Matthew:2:22: But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee:

Matthew:2:23: And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.


John 10:10*says the Satan comes to kill, steal, and destroy.*This is the work of the devil.*The devil is a taker, he tries to take every good thing that the Lord Jesus has given.*Take, Take, and Take.*

**Don't let Satan steal it from you. Satan will steal it from, he will kill you, and he will destroy you in hell with him and his little demons.**

John 10:10*also says that I [Jesus] has come to give life and give more abundantly.*This is the work of our Lord Jesus Christ.*Jesus is a giver, a giver of life.*He gave us salvation even when we didn't want it.*

**That gift is waiting on you right now, don't let Satan steal it from you. Satan will steal it from, he will kill you, and he will destroy you in hell with him and his little demons.**

**These people have all tried to remove anything and everything to do with CHRIST**

Luke 2:1-20
Now it came to pass in those days, there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be enrolled. This was the first enrollment made when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to enroll themselves, every one to his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David; to enroll himself with Mary, who was betrothed to him, being great with child. And it came to pass, while they were there, the days were fulfilled that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son; and she wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were shepherds in the same country abiding in the field, and keeping watch by night over their flock. And an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all the people: for there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this [is] the sign unto you: Ye shall find a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men in whom he is well pleased. And it came to pass, when the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing that is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found both Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in the manger. And when they saw it, they made known concerning the saying which was spoken to them about this child. And all that heard it wondered at the things which were spoken unto them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these sayings, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, even as it was spoken unto them.

Matthew 2:1-12
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, Wise-men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we saw his star in the east, and are come to worship him. And when Herod the king heard it, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judea: for thus it is written through the prophet, And thou Bethlehem, land of Judah, art in no wise least among the princes of Judah: for out of thee shall come forth a governor, who shall be shepherd of my people Israel. Then Herod privily called the Wise-men, and learned of them exactly what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search out exactly concerning the young child; and when ye have found [him,] bring me word, that I also may come and worship him. And they, having heard the king, went their way; and lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. And when they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And they came into the house and saw the young child with Mary his mother; and they fell down and worshiped him; and opening their treasures they offered unto him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. And being warned [of God] in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

Micah 5:2
But thou, Bethlehem Ephrathah, which art little to be among the thousands of Judah, out of thee shall one come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.
Compare Translations

Matthew 1:18-25* The circumstances of the birth of Jesus Christ were these. After his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they were united in marriage, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. But Joseph her husband, being a kindhearted man and unwilling publicly to disgrace her, had determined to release her privately from the betrothal. But while he was contemplating this step, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to bring home your wife Mary, for she is with child through the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a Son, and you are to call His name Jesus for He it is who will save His People from their sins." All this took place in fulfillment of what the Lord had spoken through the Prophet, "Mark! the maiden will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call his name Immanuel" —a word which signifies 'God with us'. When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded, and brought home his wife, but did not live with her until she had given birth to a son. The child's name he called Jesus.



What a joy, it is to share with you once again. I do hope you are blessed by what I share from God's word.


Acts 4:12*And there is salvation in and through no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by and in which we must be saved.

As we witness to others, about our faith. Some people may say that, we are being exclusive in our portrayal of Jesus, as the one and only answer to the problem of Sin.

But, we are only repeating, what Jesus himself said in John 14:6*Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.

There are many faiths in this world, but there is only one way to Salvation.. Amen. That is through the precious blood of the Lord Jesus, by His Death and Resurrection.. Amen

Ephesians 2:7-9He did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favor) in [His] kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus.

8.For it is by free grace (God's unmerited favor) that you are saved ([c]delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ's salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God;

9.Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law's demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.

Salvation, is all of God.. Amen. Jesus is the only way to the Father.

not in the way of eye service, as men-pleasers; but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
with good will doing service, as unto the Lord, and not unto men:
knowing that whatsoever good thing each one doeth, the same shall he receive again from the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

Faith***Romans 10:8-14***But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach:
because if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved:
for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be put to shame.
For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek: for the same Lord is Lord of all, and is rich unto all that call upon him:
for, Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Faith in The Name of Jesus Christ!

Verse 16. "And I will pray the Father, & He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever. [before the Cross, the Holy Spirit could only help a few individuals, & then only for a period of time; since the Cross, He lives in the hearts & lives in all believers, & does so forever]

Verse 17."The Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you & will be in you.

8."By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

***In verse 7, I counted you 5 times!!!*** [you, you, you, you, you]

Acts 3:16***By faith in His Name, His Name has made this man strong, [presents the key to all things!]whom you see & know. [there was no denying the Miracles]So the faith that comes through Him [Jesus] has given him[this crippled man] this perfect health in front if all of you.[total healing, no partial healing, total healing which is the way the Lord Jesus does all things].(CBS)

Acts 4:4***But many of those who heard the message believed,[they believed on Christ, there by accepting Him as the Messiah of Israel & the Savior of men] & the number of the men came to about 5,000. [seems to speak only of the men, so including women & children , it could of been ten thousand or more that believed.

Acts 4:32***Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart & soul, & no one said that any of his possessions was his own, but instead they held everything in common.
[The experience of the Christians of the Jerusalem Church in sharing their possessions is not to be taken as the norm for all Christians churches or communities. This voluntary sharing of possessions in the time of persecution is a beautiful evidence of the oneness of the believers. Evidently it was restricted to the Jerusalem Church. It also was voluntary, & in times of persecutions.]


1. Man has a body. In this he is like all creation of God through the animal and vegetable world.
2. Man possess a soul. In this we are unlike the trees , plants, and lower animals. The soul is the seat of our emotions, our passions, our feelings, our feelings, our desires, our affections, our likes and dislikes, and our will. All these thing we have in common with the God.
3. Man is a spirit. In this he is unique among God's creatures. "The spirit of a man is the candle of Jehovah"Proverbs 20:27, and it is this that is set aglow when man is born-again; and the God's Spirit testifies with man's spirit that he is a child of God. God cannot be known by the body, nor by the soul, but only by the spirit. And even the human spirit is incapable of finding out anything about God or of knowing God except by revelation of the Spirit of God.
"For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him?even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God...But the soulish (so the Greek) man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they anew foolishness unto him: neither can he know them,because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritually discerneth all things, yet he himself discerned of no man" 1 Corinthians 2:11-15.

The believer is spiritual only when he is ruled through his own spirit by the Spirit of God. If he is ruled by his body as dominated by his soul, he becomes a slave to his own affections, appetites, emotions, passions, and therefore is a willful, selfish man. The Word of God is is very careful to distinguish: between the things of the soul and the spirit even judging "the thoughts and the intents of the heart" as to whether such thoughts and intents are spiritual or soulish, Hebrews 4:12. It declares that any wisdom which is not from above and therefore not from the Spirit of God, is earthly, soulish, devilish" James 3:15. It asserts that the false teachers of the end-time are "they who make separations, soulish, having not the Spirit" Jude 19; and finally, it gives us the glorious assurance that when we get our resurrected bodies 1 Corinthians 15:44 they will be no longer soulish [natural' is incorrect here also], but spiritual: no longer dominated by selfishness and willfulness, but rather under the full and free control of the Spirit of God.

This is the most important question that you will ever have to answer.

Please Read The most important decision a person can make is where they will spend eternity.

Will you go to Heaven and spend eternity with God? OR will you go to Hell and spend eternity separated from God? When you ask the average person that question they will usually say Heaven. You ask them why they believe that and you will get many answers? I am good person, or I go to Church, or I give to charity, or I have been baptized, or many others.

If you ask God who will go to Heaven He tells us;through His Word(The Bible)that only those who are born again will go to Heaven when they die. Only those who's sins are forgiven will get to go to Heaven. The Bible is also very clear that the only payment that is acceptable to God is that blood of his son Jesus-Christ. Your good works are not good enough. Your righteousness is as filthy rags according to the scriptures.

The good news is that God loves you so much that He wrapped His love in flesh and blood and paid a price that you could not pay. In Christ there is forgiveness of sin, a home in Heaven, and communion with the Father. My prayer for you is that you see your need for a savior and turn to Him. Through prayer ask forgiveness of your sin and receive Him as your Lord.

Your Personal Invitation to be Saved and go to Heaven when your life on earth is over! God loves You!

***Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us,in that this: While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.***
(1) Your Sin (or Disobedience to God)has Separated You from God!

***Romans 5:12, Wherefore, just as sin entered into the world through one man, and death through sin and so death passed upon all men, for that all has sinned.***
(2) Only Jesus-Christ can Forgive Your Sins!***

***Acts 4:12, Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other Name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.***
(3) Will You Receive Jesus-Christ as Your Lord(or Authority)Savior(or Rescuer)?

***Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
(4) Do you believe the good news?

*Repent (Through Prayer) Sorrowfully tell God Your a Sinner, willing to turn from Your Sins and trust Jesus-Christ's shedding of His Blood and Death on the Cross for Full Payment of Our Sins and will Follow Him.

Did You Pray and ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins to Receive Christ?
Did you give Jesus complete control of your life?

If so, welcome to God's family!

Why not pause for a moment to give thanks to Him for saving you.
Please give us your Name so we can Pray for You:

Christ the Wisdom and Power of God
***1 Corinthians 1:18 says that:For the message of the Cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.***


*What Does Jesus Want You To Do Now?*
First, He wants you to have assurance of your salvation. You can be certain you have eternal life:(1) Because you have been born again, and birth is a one-time experience (see 2 Corinthians 5:17).

(2) Because of your commitment. You did what His Word said to do (see Romans 10:13).

(3) Because of God's record (see 1 John 5:11-13).

(4) Because of God's promise (see John 5:24)*

*Second, as evidence of giving Jesus control of your life, He wants you to publically confess Him and follow Him in baptism. The Word of God says, "Those who accepted His message were baptized, and...the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved" (Acts 2:41-47)*

*Third, Jesus wants you to grow into a strong, faithful disciple. The Word of God says, "Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation" (1 Peter 2:2) After you grow up you will be ready to ear so meat of the Word*

***Call on the Lord of Lord and King of kings at this time and talk with Him. He will give to those who come to Him in faith. Bless you for taking the time to read this post. Blessing of knowledge and joy headed your way in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen and Amen***Rev.Jack***

God will honor persistent, believing prayer from all believers & especially for those who are involved in sharing the gospel.

As Christians stand ready to resist Satan, we must occupy ourselves with believing prayer. We must pray constantly & for other believers, especially as we seek to share the gospel with the lost.

Christians often have difficulty resisting evil in our lives. We must do our part, but simply trying to renew our will power. Only the power of God can help us overcome evil & the temptation of Satan. Make a firm commitment to live in the strength of God for your every need.

God's people have always been faced with vile forces. If we stand on God's promises, we can make a positive difference in our world.

God does not make frivolous promises. When He promises His people something, He means it. Have you ever been afraid to accept one of God's promises? Fear is a common factor in hindering us from following God's leadership in our lives. God expects His people to take His promises seriously even in the face of difficult circumstances. Some Christians mistakenly believe that following God will guarantee a trouble free & a pain-free life.

We need to be careful that the promises we hold on to are promises God has made to us.

The way of Faith in only Three

1. Know what God has promished.

2. Ask Him to do what He promised to do.

3. Act like He has done what He promised to do.

These are the three steps of faith to receive anything God has promised, or any blessing Christ has provided.

Knowledge of the promise comes first. Prayer comes next, with praise, comes last.

When you have a clear knowledge of God's promise to you, & have asked Him to fulfill it, then He expects you o begin to do, by faith, the things which you could not do without His help. Your actions & praise prove the reality of your faith, & God confirms His word & fulfills His promise.

Rise above your doubts & fears. Prove your faith by your actions. Claim your liberty from Satan's prison of sickness. Walk out of that prison of bondage, confessing God's promise as the basis for your freedom.

Only Believe
To the father of the lunatic son, Jesus said, if you can believe, all things are possible to them that believe.(Mark 9:23). If you will only believe, you will be healed right now where you are.
Rebuke & resist the enemy that has interfered with your health, & claim your healing.

Pray Like This:
Heavenly Father, I thank You that You have made known these truths to me. I thank You that Christ has borne my diseases & my weak-nesses for me. I thank You that I do not need to bear them, since Christ took them in my place. I am so glad to know the truth, that satan is to blame for my sickness & that You have not placed them on me; that You want me to be well & strong so that I can glorify You & serve You. I thank You for the knowledge that I have legal rights & authority over all devils.

Now, Father, I come according to Your Word, expecting You o fulfill Your promise made to me: I am the Lord who heals you. I ask You to do it now, in Jesus' name, according to Your Word.

I rebuke the enemy that has caused my suffering. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I command the life of of my sickness to leave, & every symptom to be destroyed by the power of God.

Father, I thank You that You have heard my prayer & granted the answer now. I claim healing now, according to Your promise. I thank You that
the source of my sickness is destroyed, & that according to Jesus' promise, I shall recover. In Jesus' Name I have prayed, & I know my petition is heard & granted.

Hold fast the profession of your faith without wavering, for He is faithful that promised.(Hebrews 10:23)

Allow the devil to hear nothing from your lips but the confession of God's Word. If satan suggests that God has not heard & answered you, resist him steadfast in the faith, & he will flee from you.
(James 4:7; 1Peter 5:9). He is a liar.(John 8:44). God's Word is true. God watches over it to perform it for you.(Jeremiah 1:12; Ezekiel 12:25). Begin doing the things which you could not do before. Do them in Jesus' Name, claiming the healing which He has provided, & for which you have asked.

What God has done for others. He is doing right now in you through the power of His Word that is now planted in you.

What God has promised You in His Word You Shall Receive

***Whatever God has promised in His Word, if you and I earnestly ask Him to do it, and believe in our hearts that He has heard us He has answered our prayer, then He will confirm His promise to us by His power in our lives, and we will receive what we have asked for on prayer. Glory!*

***My personal salvation was paid for on that cross 2 thousand years ago by the Lord Jesus Christ. When I was told this I did not believe that Word, so I was lost and going to hell. Jesus paid for it and He offered it but I did not receive it. UNTIL I STARTED TO BELIEVE IT, THEN I REACHED OUT AND RECEIVED MY SALVATION. Marched 1980 I meet the Lord Jesus face to face and He gave just what He had said the He would give. So when you and I want anything from our Heavenly Father we must go to Him and receive it in faith. So asking in faith we shall [Shall] receive!*

***He has said, "If you can only believe, all [all] things [all things] are possible to those [to those] who believe [all things to those who believes His Word]. He is there with you at this very moment in time, in His Spirit, to confirm His promise to you [to make sure that His Word is preformed], if only you can believe His Word today.*

***Inquire:"You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart."(Jer. 29:13, NIV)*

***God wants us to seek Him with all our hearts, and when we do, He meets us right where we're at. God waits for us daily to come to Him and spend time with Him. What are you doing today? Spending time on the cares of the world or spending time with the only one that can handle those cares. Choose you this day!*

REV. JACK "CAPTAIN"SPARROW: FIGHTERS FOR ZION, THIS IS YOUR FAMILY HERE IN ISR...: Fighters for Zion FIGHTERS FOR ZION, THIS IS YOUR FAMILY HERE IN ISRAEL: The good people of Israel. Headlines may be depressing, but Is...


Fighters for Zion

The good people of Israel.

Headlines may be depressing, but Israel comprises many wonderful people.

There are plenty of healthy forces in this nation. Below the surface, away from the limelight, far away from the headlines, great forces are at work within our people.

Those who feast on breaking news and newspaper headlines may think that all is terrible around here and that everyone is a murderer or a thief; as though everything is evil, despicable, cynical and alienated. However, those who live amid this special people know that below the veneer hide immense forces of mercy, kindness and goodness.

Those who toured Jerusalem in recent days, or more accurately in recent nights, especially near the Kotel, could not but be moved by the tens of thousands of Jews arriving there: Ranging from military units to young children, from longtime citizens to new immigrants. Members of all ages, ethnic groups, religious streams, professions and styles gather every night near the Temple’s remnants.

Yet while every caprice or minor event in Tel Aviv is given major headlines, the tens of thousands at the Kotel every night are barely mentioned. Tens of thousands of people, who arrive in order to connect, communicate, safeguard their heritage and tradition, pray and reinforce their identity based on a deep, inner Jewish instinct, out of a desire to connect to something eternal, significant and spiritual.

Moreover, each one of us hears stories here and there and discovers how much mercy there is around here. I am driven by a typical Israeli taxi driver, who tells me that he makes sure to offer at least one free ride every day. He seeks out an elderly man or woman at poor neighborhoods and offers them a ride.

A million such stories
You go over to some kiosk to buy falafel and while you’re at it the seller tells you that he feeds several passersby every day; people who appear hungry and poor. You also hear about commanders who instead of taking time off visit their lone or poor soldiers and fill their fridge with food, or host them, or arrange medical care for them.

You hear about doctors who arrive at the hospital at night, on their free time, in order to see how a patient in pain is doing. You hear about mechanics who turned their garages into a warehouse for food distribution to the poor. You hear a million such stories. Everyone knows them. These people are all around us all the time.

Suddenly you realize how much genuine goodness exists in this people. Indeed, this simple, natural goodness has no rating and it is indeed easier to produce headlines about murder and violence than about mercy and giving – yet on the occasion of Rosh Hashana, when we seek to be judged favorably, we must first say favorable things about the people of Israel.

We are not an easy nation. This was already discovered by God and Moses, when they discussed the stubborn, opinionated people we were. However, no other nation has such strength of character and natural, Jewish health like our own, with so much mercy, caring, and a desire to change.

This people is not about violent, hate-filled talk backers who overwhelm websites with crude responses of verbal violence. This people is about the righteous cab driver, the righteous doctor, the righteous commander, and the righteous mechanic – a collection of righteous people who make up the core, strength, depth and power of this nation.

One can click his tongue, respond cynically, make harsh comments and keep looking for drawbacks and flaws. I have pity for those who take pleasure in insulting their friends, attacking, reprimanding, criticizing, and spreading evil and hatred. At this time, we can stand proud and amazed in the face of the immense powers of soul, mercy and goodness found within our nation, and know that thanks to them we shall face any test.

So Shana Tova, Ktiva Tova and Hatima Tova to the nation of righteousness and mercy.

A Christian’s Guide To World Religions Part-1
“What About Islam?” Galatians 2:17-21

A missionary in India spoke near a fountain on the subject, “Jesus, the Water of Life.” A Muslim interrupted, “Your religion is like this little stream of water, but Islam is like a great ocean!” “Yes,” said the missionary, “but there is this difference: When men drink ocean water they die of thirst. When they drink the water of life which Christ gives, they live forever!” The stream is small, but it can satisfy your thirst. Jesus Christ came into the world as a little baby that He might show that no one is so little or so insignificant that the great God will not come to dwell within him.

This morning we will embark on a three part journey, exploring the three most prominent world religions, other than the largest faith; Christianity. This week we celebrate veteran’s day and since we have many American troops serving overseas in what are predominately Muslim areas, it seems appropriate that we begin with the religion that Muhammad founded; Islam.

In the following two weeks we will discuss the next two largest world religions; Hinduism and Buddhism. My focus will be providing a basic understanding of the history, major beliefs, and holy writings of each of these three religions and then to provide a concise comparison of them with Christianity. Then I will ask the simplest of questions of each of them: “What think ye of Christ.” (Mathew 22:42)

You see, unlike the droves of spiritual teachers of this postmodern era, I am compelled toward a high view of the uniqueness of the Cross of Jesus Christ and therefore a high view of the uniqueness and authority of the Christian faith in regard to all matters pertaining to faith in and worship of Jehovah El Elyon (Genesis 14:22), The LORD, the Most High GOD.

Mortimer Jerome Adler, the American Philosopher, once wrote that, “Christianity is the only world religion that is evangelical in the sense of sharing good news with others. Islam converts by force; Buddhism, without the benefit of a theology; Hinduism doesn’t even try.” It my deepest and strongest desire, in the following three weeks before we enter the Advent, Christmas, season, to show the uniqueness of the gift that we have been given in Christ by comparing and contrasting the pure religion of Jesus Christ with these three false, vain, empty religions.
In so doing, I trust that we may all have a renewed sense of awe at the advent of Messiah, Jesus Christ. Let me say in advance that this will not be an exhaustive treatment of the history or practices of Islam. Such a treatment would require a lengthy series of sermons. We’ll be doing a bit of a “fly by,” skimming the tree tops to get a sense of the nature of the forest.

Background. Islam dates from time of the last ten years of the life its founder, Muhammad Ibne Abdullah, or simply the prophet Muhammad. He was born at or around 570 A.D. in the city of Mecca, which is now located in Saudi Arabia. Muhammad was orphaned early in his life and tradition says that he was raised by his grandfather and then his uncle, Abu Talib. Muhammad was a poor man until he married a wealthy widow named Khadija. At about the age of 40, Muhammad is said to have begun to see visions and receive revelations.

It was at this time that Muhammad began preaching
publicly against the multiplicity of idols which were worshiped at Mecca’s central shrine, the Ka’ba. Muhammad believed, or at least reported, that he has received his visions from Allah, through the angel Gabriel. For his monotheistic beliefs he was an enemy to many, not the least of which were the merchants whose wealth stemmed from the sale of goods and idols to pilgrims traveling to the Ka’ba to worship their gods.

Muhammad and his many followers were forced to leave Mecca to what became known as Medina for a time. From that time it took Muhammad, only ten years to build his band of followers into a strong army which conquered nearly all of central and western Arabia. Muhammad, who had been previously cast out of Mecca, returned less than a decade later and made it his capital.

Muhammad was clearly a great military leader. He also considered himself to be the prophet of Allah, and as such, he founded Islam, which he taught was a return to the pure worship of the one true God of Abraham. Muhammad believed that was a descendant of the son born of Hagar to Abraham, when Abraham disobeyed God’s command to wait for a child to be born of his aging wife, Sarah.

This connection is crucial to understanding the Islamic religion. The Ka’ba, which was the central shrine of Arabs in Mecca, Muhammad believed to have been built by Abraham as a place of worship to God. Muhammad considered Abraham to be his father and thus, the religion he founded was to be, not so much a new thing, but a return to the worship of the one true God of his father.
It is important to note, however, that the name given to god by Muhammad, Allah, does not find its roots in the true worship of Abraham, but in pagan traditions. “Allah corresponded to the Babylonian god Baal, and Arabs knew of him long before Mohammed worshipped him as the supreme. Allah was the god of the local Qurish tribe of whom was Mohammed’s tribe before he invented Islam to lead his people out of their polytheism.

Allah was known as the Moon God, of which he had 3 daughters who were viewed as intercessors for the people into Allah. Mohammed drove the other idols away; he made one God now the only god and he was its messenger. Mohammed used the name Allah, which was of a specific idol without ever distinguishing it from the idol the Meccans were already worshipping… These names show the devotion of Mohammed’s pagan roots, and also prove that Allah was part of a polytheistic system of worship before Allah was made the supreme and only god from the other God’s. The crescent moon was the symbol of the moon God Allah and is used as a symbol of Islam today.” (www.answers-islam.org)

God had already preserved His written word through the nation of Israel, through Abraham’s son Isaac. He had already fulfilled the promises made to Abraham through His son, Jesus Christ.

Islam did not arise until the Church was more than six hundred years in existence. Muhammad’s interest in establishing Islam seems to be almost entirely driven by a desire for power and a desire to unify that power around a central ideal or religion.

In driving out the other pagan gods, the pantheon of more than 360 gods worshipped in the region of Mecca, and unifying people around just one of those gods, Allah, the moon god, he effectively unified his power by merging his political power, which had won by the sword, and his religious power where he had claimed to be the prophet of the only god worthy of affection.

Writings. The primary sources of knowledge of Islam for a Muslim are the Qur’an and the Hadith. The Qur’an is the central source for Muslims. It is considered to be Allah’s final revelation to humanity and is said to have been revealed to Muhammad by the angel Gabriel over a period of 26 years. The Hadith are a collection of oral traditions surrounding the sayings and teachings of the prophet Muhammad. Both are widely accepted among Muslims.

Practices. To our western minds, I think it does a disservice to refer to Islam as merely the religion of much of the world.
That is because in the west we tend to view our religious convictions as a major, even central, part of our life. But in Islam, the teachings of Muhammad dominate all areas of personal and social life.

In a country where the pure Islamic faith is present, you find that it dominates the legal system through what is known as Sharia law. The term means “way” or “path to the water source”. Sharia is the legal framework for all that goes on in a Muslim society. It offers strict guidelines for politics, economics, family, banking, sexuality, hygiene, and social issues.

Under Sharia law women are treated as second class citizens with little or absolutely not voice whatsoever. The Islamic worldview is based on upholding the five pillars of Islam. For a Muslim, God has not provided a savior; there is no shed blood of Calvary for them. In their view, they are working hard every day to perhaps earn the opportunity for eternal life and favor from God.

The first pillar is Shahadah. It is professing the oneness of Allah and accepting Prophet Muhammad as his messenger to humanity. As a profession of this faith, they would say, in Arabic, “I testify that there is only one god Allah and that Muhammad (Peace Be Unto His Name) is his messenger.”

The second pillar of Islam is Salat. This requires a Muslim to pray five times a day at specific times. The third pillar is Zakaat. This is alms-giving which is required from all who are able to do so.

Sawm, the fourth pillar, is ritual fasting during the 9th month of the Islamic year, the season of Ramadan. Muslims have to abstain from food, drink, and sexual intercourse from dawn to dusk during this month. They are also to be especially mindful of other sins.

The last pillar is the Haji. The Haji is a pilgrimage that occurs during the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah to the holy city of Mecca. Every able Muslim is obliged to make the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in their lifetime if they can afford it.

Islam is the second largest religion in the world, following only Christianity. It boasts 1.5 billion adherents, which Christianity, the largest world religion, boast 2.1 billion followers. Islam is most prevalent in the northern half of Africa, the Middle East, and it is in India and Russia to a lesser degree.

Islam is on the rise, though. In the west a more moderate form of Islam seems to be taking root in academic circles, in large cities such as Chicago and elsewhere. I am blessed to have a friend in Bishop E.C. Okoye of Nigeria, Africa.

From his first hand accounts in Nigeria, I have learned why it is that Islam is on the rise today. He tells me that in Nigeria and elsewhere, the reason Islam grows is because they are very proactive in their missionary efforts.

Islam in Africa receives support from Islamic leaders in oil-rich Islamic nations for the building of schools, roads, and hospitals. When you are poor and Islam built the school you attend and the hospital that cares for you it is easy to trust in Allah.

I am not of the school of thought that says that Islam is a peaceful religion which has been perverted by a few extremists. The evidence is to the contrary. Islam is a religion of works which was created by a warlord. Muhammad conquered territories and then rallied the conquered peoples around one central religion, which, do not forget, he created. Islam is a religion bathed in bloodshed.

There are moderate Muslims, especially in the United States, to be sure, but I want to speak plainly to this issue, Islam is not another way of worshipping the one true God. It is not a similarly peaceful religion. It is a religion of working to earn Allah’s favor and of evangelism by the sword.

Jerry Rassamni, a former Muslim extremist who converted to Christ, wrote the book “From Jihad to Jesus.” He writes, “In Islam, the world is traditionally divided into two camps. Those are Dar Al Islam (literally house of Islam or submission) meaning House of Peace, and Dar Al Harb (House of War).

Although the exact definitions of these terms vary widely, a traditional definition is as follows: Countries that are under Muslim rule are grouped in the House of Peace, whereas countries that are not are grouped under House of War. Muslim fundamentalists have Islamic world domination in mind.

They are on a jihad until the whole world confesses the Islamic creed which is featured on the Saudi Arabian flag. The Wahabis are the dominant Islamic sect in Saudi Arabia. Their war cry was: “kill the infidels.” The national flag of Saudi Arabia, the religious center of Islam has the words, “La Illaha Illa Allah” (There is no god by Allah).

Beneath those words, is the key to making that happen – a [depiction of a] sword.”

I am compelled by a straightforward study of the Scriptures, that there are not many paths leading toward the same God, no, there is a clear stream of life proceeding from one source, God, the one true God of Israel, in Jesus Christ. Our hope is not build on so much shifting sand, but on the very word of God.

Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:5-6 NET) It is by God’s grace alone that men are saved. All of our efforts, all of our works, are like filthy rags in the sight of God.

Islam is not the good news of Jesus Christ dying for the sins of the world. In Islam there is no savior, only the shackles of working to earn mercy. In Christ God has revealed His loving nature; grace.

We are told to lay down the sword and pick up the Cross! We are told to let go of our earthly treasure and power and follow after the Master of Mercy! In Christ, God did what we could not do for ourselves. In Islam, I am left to my devices, working to earn the mercy of Allah. Islam, therefore, fails the litmus test of salvation which I proposed earlier in this sermon; “What think ye of Christ?”

In Islam Jesus is merely a wise prophet and there is no savior but one’s own works.
But that isn’t enough. Jesus claimed to be the Son of God. If He was not then he is a blasphemer, not a prophet. And if He is the Son of God then He is Saviour.

Where Christianity offers hope, Islam only offers enslavement to the law. Where Christianity offers peace with God through Jesus Christ, Islam only offers war within me as I strive to please God and war with others; as I am commanded not, as in Christ, to share the truth in love and service, I am told to convert the infidel by whatever means necessary, including the sword.

We need not concern ourselves with the five pillars in an effort to please God; it has already been done for us, in Jesus Christ. Be reminded today, child of God, that in Christ alone is found the grace of God. We don’t have to wear shackles of guilt and shame; working to please God. We are freed from our chains by grace in order that God, working in us, might bring glory to Himself.

KafirThe word kafir should be used instead of "unbeliever"

The language of Islam is dualistic. As an example, there is never any reference to humanity as a unified whole. Instead there is a division into believer and kafir (unbeliever). Humanity is not seen as one body, but is divided into whether the person believes Mohammed is the prophet of Allah or not.

Kafir is what the Koran and Islam call the unbelievers. Kafir is the worst word in the human language.

The Koran defines the kafir and says that the kafir is:

Hated- 40:35 They who dispute the signs of Allah [kafirs] without authority having reached them are greatly hated by Allah and the believers. So Allah seals up every arrogant, disdainful heart. and despised by Allah.

Mocked- 83:34 On that day the faithful will mock the kafirs, while they sit on bridal couches and watch them. Should not the kafirs be paid back for what they did?

Punished- 25:77 Say to the kafirs: My Lord does not care for you or your prayers. You have rejected the truth, so sooner or later, a punishment will come.

Beheaded- 47:4 When you encounter the kafirs on the battlefield, cut off their heads until you have thor-oughly defeated them and then take the prisoners and tie them up firmly.

Confused- 6:25 Some among them listen to you [Mohammed], but We have cast veils over their [kafirs] hearts and a heaviness to their ears so that they cannot understand our signs [the Koran].

Plotted against- 86:15 They plot and scheme against you [Mohammed], and I plot and scheme against them. Therefore, deal calmly with the kafirs and leave them alone for a while.

Terrorized- 8:12 Then your Lord spoke to His angels and said, "I will be with you. Give strength to the believers. I will send terror into the kafirs' hearts, cut off their heads and even the tips of their fin-gers!"

Annihilated- 6:45 So the kafirs were annihilated. All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.

Killed- 4:91 If they do not keep away from you or offer you peace or withdraw their hostilities, then seize them and kill them wherever they are. We give you complete authority over them.

Crucified- 5:33 The only reward for those who war against Allah and His messengers and strive to com-mit mischief on the earth is that they will be slain or crucified, have their alternate hands and feet cut off, or be banished from the land. This will be their disgrace in this world, and a great torment shall be theirs in the next except those who repent before you overpower them. Know that Allah is forgiving and merciful.

Made war on- 9:29 Make war on those who have received the Scriptures [Jews and Christians] but do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day. They do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden. The Christians and Jews do not follow the religion of truth until they submit and pay the poll tax [jizya], and they are humiliated.

A Muslim is not the friend of a kafir- 3:28 Believers should not take kafirs as friends in preference to other believers. Those who do this will have none of Allah's protection and will only have themselves as guards. Allah warns you to fear Him for all will return to Him.

A kafir is ignorant- 6:111 Even if We had sent down the angels to them [kafirs], the dead had spoken to them, and We had gathered all things before their eyes, they would not believe unless Allah had willed it, but most of them are ignorant.

Evil- 23:97 And say: Oh my Lord! I seek refuge with You from the suggestions of the evil ones [kafirs]. And I seek refuge with you, my Lord, from their presence.

Disgraced- 37:18 Tell them, "Yes! And you [kafirs] will be disgraced." a partner of Satan 25:55 And still they worship others besides Allah who can neither help nor hurt them. The kafir is Satan's ally against Allah. Unclean- 9:28 Oh, believers, only the kafirs are unclean.

Cursed- 33:60 They [kafirs] will be cursed, and wherever they are found, they will be seized and mur-dered. It was Allah's same practice with those who came before them, and you will find no change in Allah's ways.

Stolen from- Bukhari 5,59,537 On the day of Khaybar, Allah's Apostle divided the spoils of war of Khaybar with the ratio of two shares for the horse and one share for the foot soldier.

Raped- Ishaq 759 [Mohammed's official biography] On the occasion of Khaybar, Mohammed put forth new orders about forcing sex with captive women. If the woman was pregnant she was not to be used for sex until after the birth of the child. Nor were any women to be used for sex who were unclean with regard to Muslim laws about menstruation.

Christians and Jews are infidels, but infidels are kafirs, too. Polytheists are Hindus, but they are also kafirs. The terms infidel and polytheist are religious words. Only the word "kafir" shows the common political treatment of Christian, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, animist, atheist and humanist.

The word kafir should be used instead of "unbeliever", the standard word. Unbeliever is a neutral term. The Koran defines the kafir and kafir is not a neutral word. A kafir is not merely someone who does not agree with Islam, but a kafir is evil, disgusting, the lowest form of life. Kafirs can be tortured, killed, lied to and cheated. So the usual word "unbeliever" does not reflect the political reality of Islam.

Evil- 23:97 And say: Oh my Lord! I seek refuge with You from the suggestions of the evil ones [kafirs]. And I seek refuge with you, my Lord, from their presence.
