Reign of Mahdi or Reign of Jesus
By Howard Green

The expressed goal of Islam is to rule the world. Islamists promote the implementation of Sharia law in countries they reside in. One look at the current social and political climate in much of Western Europe confirms the radical intentions and aspirations Of Islam.
Islamists don't come into a country to assimilate, they come with the intent to dominate.
The ultimate goal of the Islamists is a world conquered and dominated by Islam....a worldwide Islamic caliphate (kingdom). The Islamists expect their Islamic redeemer (the Mahdi) to return and rule the earth for seven years. While the Islamists envision a worldwide kingdom ushered in by Mahdi and empowered by the false god Allah, followers of the one true God know who will rule this earth. Time bears out all truth and the question of who will rule the earth will be answered once and for all: Will there be a reign of Mahdi or reign of Jesus?
Before we begin let me make a distinction. I don't believe every Muslim wants to wage jihad and kill Christians and Jews. In fact, there are a great number who simply want to raise their families, contribute to society, and live in peace. I also pray for the Muslim world in hopes that many would come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and many of them are. When I use the distinction “Islamists,” I'm referring to extremists, Jihadists, and terrorists who have as their main goal....the extinction of Christians and Jews and the establishment of a global caliphate.
One of the most disturbing aspects of the Islamist belief is the teachings about the return of the Mahdi. In much of Islamic eschatology (end time teachings), is the belief that Mahdi will return. Although Mahdi isn't mentioned in the Qur’an, he is mentioned numerous times in various writings and Islamic tradition. According to many Shia teachings, Mahdi’s appearance will be proceeded by times of global unrest, upheaval, and the destruction of Israel.
At the time of the writing of this article, numerous Bible prophecy teachers and geopolitical experts are sounding the alarm about the warped ideology of the Islamists. The alarm is being raised and for good reason. It is because the Islamists are determined to hasten the appearance of Mahdi. To that end they wage jihad, conquer land to dominate people, institute Sharia law, and are obsessed with procuring weapons of mass destruction to “bring an end to the Zionist state.”
It is my estimation that the Nazis and Imperial Japan were the essence of evil in their day. There was however; one key element missing from their efforts as a whole. That was the element of religion. Was there demonic activity in Nuremberg? Was there blind allegiance to Hitler in Germany and Emperor Hirohito in Japan? Did the devotion of the populous have a religious type fervor to it? The answer to these questions as history demonstrates is yes. Here is the difference:
The Axis powers weren’t trying to hasten the end of the world. They were trying to create their version of how the world should be.....albeit an oppressive dark world. Both Germany and Japan surrendered because had they gone on any longer it was obvious, all would be lost.
On the other hand, you cannot compromise, appease, or reason with Islamists. They won't surrender and if fact they are inspired by bloodshed because they believe they are hastening the end of time and the appearance of Mahdi.
Their goal is worldwide domination, subjugation, and when it comes to Christians and Jews.....inhalation. What makes the Islamist's beliefs about the end times so alarming to many of us is the simple fact: They are (trying) to create the worldwide conditions for Mahdi’s return. This gives a whole new perspective to the fact that there are nuclear weapons in Pakistan.
This is cause for grave concern because there are massive chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria. Worst of all, these are perilous times because Iran is months, weeks, or perhaps days away from having a nuclear weapon.
In many hadiths (Islamic teachings and traditions), Mahdi is said to come during a time of great battles and bloodshed. In some writings, Syria is mentioned along with Muslims battling Muslims. Here are some Islamists teachings regarding Mahdi:
He will come in the last days to establish his worldwide reign. He is different than Jesus. It is taught when Mahdi returns, Jesus will accompany him. When Jesus prays, he prays behind Mahdi. Imam Mahdi and the Muslim army go to Syria to confront the Christians. The Christians, before the battle, will ask Muslims for the return of their prisoners-of-war. The Muslims will refuse. The battle will begin. One-third of Imam Mahdi’s army will flee (their repentance will not be accepted), one-third will be martyred, and one-third will gain victory over the Christians. 
Tradition says Mahdi will be owner of the East and the West. Tradition states that Mahdi will extract treasure from the infidels. Mahdi will emerge when other religions are in decline. The one who will not accept will be killed and the one who would debate with him (Mahdi) will be defeated. Allah will restore religion by means of Mahdi and will produce victories and triumphs for him. Except for those who say, “There is no god but Allah” none others would be left on the earth. The following is the words of a prominent Islamist cleric in Egypt. Notice he leaves no doubt about Islam's endgame: “When the Mahdi comes, not a single Jew will be left on the face of the earth.” This is frightening and frankly...demonic rhetoric.
The expressed goal of a worldwide Islamic kingdom/caliphate is to be realized by means of jihad. There is a lot of rhetoric from Imams, clerics, and leadership in terrorist groups calling for global jihad. Remember former Iranian President Ahmadinejad based his geopolitical outlook on the belief that Islam would dominate at the time of Mahdi’s return.
There are people in leadership today who govern with the sole purpose of destabilizing the world in hopes of ushering in Mahdi’s reign. Current Iranian President Rouhan has the same goals for a world dominated by Islam, Israel's destruction, and the destruction of the U.S. as well.
The Muslim world doesn't agree on much of anything. One thing they appear galvanized on is the globalization of Islam. We have already covered the imminent threats of a nuclear Iran. Look at how much the globe has come unraveled in just the past year. Hundreds of thousands dead in Syria and the emergence of ISIS (the Islamic state of Iraq and Syria). The clear and present danger posed by ISIS cannot be understated. I will devote a complete article to ISIS down the line, but I bring them up now for a reason. In the effort to destabilize the world it must be mentioned that ISIS is making huge gains in Syria and Iraq. Jordan may very well be next and Israel is in the same zip code so to speak. Things could deteriorate very quickly if ISIS threatens Israel.
No matter how the end time scenario unfolds, we know that Islamists are looking to establish a global caliphate and that many Muslims expect Mahdi to return to set up his kingdom. The violent aspirations of Islam are all too real. In areas where Islamists dominate....fear, oppression, bloodshed, suffering, and murder follow close behind. In Chad, Mali, and Nigeria, Islamists are burning churches, raping women, and murdering anyone who won't submit to them. In Iraq they are burying people alive for not converting to Islam. Christians among others are being beheaded for not bowing the knee to Islam.
I find it ironic that violent Islamists are beheading Christians in Iraq. This is not a religion of peace, but of evil. People who don't worship the antichrist are beheaded for faithfulness to Jesus during the great tribulation. Even now, the spirit of antichrist is at work in the world.
We covered the dangers of the fanatical belief in the Mahdi that will provoke madmen to wage war in these last days. As believers in the one true God, we know only Jesus Christ will rule this world with perfection. Let's look at what the Bible says about the absolute certainty of the reign of Jesus:
Luke 1:32: “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”
Revelation 11:15: “Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.”
Revelation 20:6: “Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.”
Micah 4:2: “Many nations shall come, and say:“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths. ‘For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He shall judge between many peoples, and shall decide for strong nations far away; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares ,and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore; but they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken. For all the peoples walk each in the name of
of its god, but we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever.’”
Revelation 22:12: “Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
The Word of God is clear on what the future holds. Yes, there will be a worldwide ruler....who will magnify himself as God. The Antichrist will deceive many with lying wonders during the great tribulation. Will the false teachings about the Mahdi play into the end time scenario of confusion about who the one true God is? That is a possibility.
There is one thing we know for certain, The reign of Mahdi is a farce. Allah's kingdom will not be set up because Allah is a false god.....not the one true God. We know that the Lord Jesus won't pray behind the Mahdi because Jesus is Lord of all heaven and earth. The Bible makes it very clear that Jesus is the one who will reign on this earth for a thousand years and His reign will be to the glory of God the Father.
We do have very dark days ahead of us. The news is filled with wars and rumors of wars. The Islamists are awaiting their Mahdi and hoping to hasten his coming by bringing about the end of the world. We recognize the fervor in which these radicals want to promote their violent false end time ideology. The very real possibility of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons in the hands of these extremists make this world a very dangerous place. They call for the destruction of the little Satan (Israel) and the great Satan (America) by any and all means available. When I see the condition of the world today, it makes me long for the return of the Lord. This planet will finally have peace when the Prince of Peace reigns.
As followers of Jesus, we know how the story ends and who will reign forever. It is true, Israel will go through some difficult days ahead. But in spite of all of the frenzied millions calling for her destruction and gathering to bring it about....Israel won’t be destroyed. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has made it clear how history will culminate via His word. I pray that thought alone will bring you peace in these last days.
All for Him,

Joel Osteen Facebook Post Reveals Horrific Lack Of Knowledge Of Scripture

by NTEB News Desk

Pastor of America's largest church has no understanding of the holy bible

"The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?" Jeremiah 5:31
Mega-church pastor Joel Osteen may lead the largest Protestant church in the United States, but a recent Facebook post shows he might need to go back toSunday school.
Monday post to his verified Facebook page, Joel Osteen ministries, read: “God said in Numbers11:23, ‘Moses, is there any limit to My power?’ He was saying, ‘Moses, you saw Me part the Red Sea, stop the sun for Joshua, keep three Hebrew teenagers safe in a fiery furnace, don’t you realize that I can bring water without rain?’ There’s no limit to God’s power.” As of Friday afternoon, the post had over 317,000 likes and 52,000 shares. It has since been deleted by the Osteen camp.
Some of Osteen’s followers noticed the error, with one commenter asking “Bro, do you even Scripture?”
There’s just one problem: According to the Bible, Moses was dead before Joshua asked God to stop the setting of the sun, and long before the three Hebrew youths were burned in the furnace.
The Old Testament Book of Joshua explains that God appointed Joshua as Moses’s successor after Moses’s death (the first sentence literally begins, “Now after the death of Moses…”), who led the Israelites into battle against the Amorites, during which he commanded the sun and the moon not to move. “And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.”Joshua 10:13
The story of the the three Hebrew youths is told in the Old Testament Book of Daniel. According to the passage, the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar, who reigned around the 6th century B.C. (long, long after the projected time of Moses), ordered his people to worship a large golden idol, “And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.” (Daniel 3:6). The three Hebrew youths refused to worship the idol and were thrown into the furnace, but were not burned because Jesus showed up.
This passage is particularly important because it is understood to prefigure Christ — when the king asked whether the three were burned, one of his counselors replied “He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”Daniel 3:25

The Shemitah: America Will Be Brought Down To Her Knees With This Mysterious Prophecy And Will Be Shaken To The Core

by joecruzmn
America could be heading for a shaken the likes of which she has never experienced before. Her lack of faith and commitment to God has become a spiritual void of destructive behavior and self-reliance on herself. Now  judgement is approaching our land that has forgotten her creator. America will be brought down to her knees and severe punishment will be handed. The Mystery of the Shemitah will play a role in our demise. This long lost forgotten prophecy was to heal the land and forgive those in debt. It was a reset button to begin anew. It has now become a tool of judgement. Next year America will have another destiny with the Shemitah. Is there really a connection to this mysterious reset button that is used to forgive  debt, but that is being used as a form of punishment on the nations that turn their backs on God? Join Dr. Kevin Clarkson and Jonathan Cahn as they discuss the Shemitah and  what dire implications it will have for our nation as it continues to turn away from the love of God.

Deception: Key to Antichrist’s Kingdom

by Terry James
Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s minister of propaganda during the years of the Nazi regime, put to the test Vladimir Lenin's declaration that if you tell a lie often enough and long enough, people will soon come to believe it.
Millions of Germans did, indeed, come to believe the lies–chief of which, the one that the Jews were the single greatest cause of the problems Germany had experienced during the depression of that day. Many believed Goebbels’ incessant diatribes against all semitic peoples, and that the fuehrer was akin to a god, who would lead the German people to the utopia the propagandists termed “The Third Reich.”
The evil Nazi mouthpiece and the venom he injected into the Germans proved God’s word 100 percent accurate: “The getting of treasures by a lying tongue [is] a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death” (Prov. 21:6).
Few regimes in history have inflicted upon their victims the catastrophic scope of death and destruction wrought by the Nazis. Hitler’s promises to the German people were based upon demon-inspired deception; his promises of peace to the world were predicated upon hellish lies. The result was the death of millions in war and in the Holocaust. The people to whom the fuehrer made the promises suffered perhaps more than anyone, with the iron-fisted Soviet dictatorships from Josef Stalin through Leonid Brezhnev and beyond oppressing a divided Germany, as part of the spoils of war.
There is another apothegm that warns sternly, echoing within the ears of this generation. But, no one seems to be listening. At least not enough people are listening to cause a red flag of alarm to alert this generation.
George Santayana the philosopher said that those who refuse to learn from the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them. The God of heaven gives His prescription/antidote for the lies spouted by the minions of the father of lies: “Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding” (Prov 23:23).
Not only are the geopolitical leaders of the world forgetting the warning of Santayana’s famous words, but so-called leaders within the body of Christ are beginning to fall victim to the very propaganda device Lenin warned about, and Goebbels gleefully adopted as his methodology for mesmerizing the German people of the 1930s and 40s. They are –many already have—falling for the lie that has been proclaimed loudly for a long time.
The nucleus of the lie is that Israel is the problem. This lie is, I’m beginning to think—the key to the coming Antichrist kingdom –another proof of the wisdom of Santayana’s words. Hitler’s horrors will be revisited upon not only the Jews (Jacob’s trouble – Jeremiah 30:7), but upon the whole world (read Revelation chapter 13, especially v.16-18). Antichrist’s regime will make Hitler’s Nazi atrocities seem almost child’s play by comparison, according to Jesus: “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matt. 24:21).
Jesus gives, in the Olivet Discourse, forewarning that great deception will be prominent at the time He is set to return. Deception is at the very first of His warnings, as a matter of fact. Paul the apostle foretells in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 that one of the major things that will be going on during the tribulation era is that a “lie” will deceive most people. There can be little doubt that Antichrist’s system of world control will come in on a platform of deception that will put to shame, in terms of magnitude, Goebbels’ lies about the Third Reich.
Daniel the prophet forecast how the end-time tyrant will use deception. Antichrist will, Daniel foretells, come in on a platform of deceptiveness: “And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries” (Dan. 11:21). The “beast,” as he is called in Revelation 13, will concentrate most of his vitriol –as did Hitler—on the hated Jews: “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do [exploits]” (Dan.11:32).
God’s people will stand strong against the deception that the Jew is the root of all evil during that era, Daniel foretells. Not so in this pre-trib era for the most part, it is sad to have to say. We can see the effects the satanic deception is having by looking at Israel. We can always count on the Jewish state to provide insight, while those who watch world issues and events through the prism of god’s prophetic Word seek discernment in these closing days of the age.
We remember how then Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, during a visit to New York during his time in power, proclaimed that he was for peace –wanted to live in serenity, like every other good citizen of the planet. This message was, on its surface, a far cry from the hate-filled rhetoric he used when he addressed his constituency back in the land where ancient Persia once sat. He flattered and cajoled the press and diplomats alike, and was flattered and feted in return. Israel was, by omission –those reporters and government officials who were so gaga over Ahmadinejad ignoring the tyrant’s stated fate planned for all Jews—accused, without overtly stating their opinion, of obviously being the culprit in Middle East threats of war. That this great man, the Iranian president, was just too interested in peace for the whole world to ever be a warmonger, was the sense one got upon observing the love fest during those times.
Yet strangely, Ahmadinejad at the same time managed to tell the deluded, gullible, deceived people who fawned over him precisely his goals and ambitions. It was Hitlerian –even more profoundly mesmerizing than that. The man was positively luciferian in his deceptive presentation at Columbia University, and at the U.N.
Ahmadinejad spoke against U.S. intrusion in the Middle East; rejected the UN Security Council's authority to take action against Iran's illicit nuclear weapons program; refused to retract his statements that Israel should be destroyed, removed from the world; held to his stance that people do not have a right to live their lives based upon right of personal freedoms; did not budge from Islamic demands that women be kept wrapped in silence beneath the cultural and societal surface.
The Iranian dictator, while refusing to answer directly questions about those matters, still managed to get reported as saying that Iranian women have full rights, and are free to live their lives as they please, and that homosexuals are not executed or tortured –adding that there are no homosexuals in Iran. These absurdities went basically unchallenged by the American mainstream press, which saw a lie behind every Bush Administration statement and consistently launched “journalistic” investigations based upon the slightest hint of perceived wrongdoing.
The news media did reportorial acrobatics to write glowing reports on Ahmadinejad, looking for any small sliver of evidence that he advocated peace and desires no ill will toward Israel, or Jews, anywhere. Today, even though Ahmadinejad is gone from the scene and others have taken his  and his regime’s place,  media hasn’t changed. They seem intellectually incapable of ascertaining truth about anything to do with Middle East insanity in hatred toward Israel. Shades of the Fuehrer! Foreshadows of Antichrist! The beast of Revelation, chapter 13, will one day –perhaps sooner rather than later—place his key of great deception into the lock that holds shut the door to his murderous kingdom.

In Other News...


Today, many people are wondering if ISIS will ultimately destroy Western civilization. But before I address that question, we need to take a little journey to discover what Western culture has done to itself.

Beginning with the age of reason in the 17th century, Western culture built itself on the foundation of reason and objective truth.

In the 1960s, however, Western culture underwent a radical transformation. A new way of looking at reality-focusing on the inner, subjective experience instead of objective truth-profoundly affected the...

 Subject: I don’t know if this is true, but its interesting!!

London cab driver's answer to a request from a Muslim to turn off the radio.  (You just got to love the Brits.)
A devout Arab Muslim entered a black cab in London.  He curtly asked the cabbie to turn off  the radio because, as decreed by his religious teaching, he must not listen to music because in the time of the prophet there was no music, especially Western music which is the music of  the infidel.
The cab driver politely switched off the radio, stopped the cab and opened the door.
The Arab Muslim asked him, "What are you doing?"
The cabbie answered, "In the time of the prophet there were no taxis, so get your self out and wait for a camel.."
