God's Sword of Truth - The Word
"For we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth to me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge His people" Hebrews 10:30. Also read Matthew 5:39, Luke 6:35-36, Romans 12:17-18, Romans 12:21 and I Thessalonians 5:13-22
There are many kinds of war; many reasons for them - war between people and Countries, World Wars, etc. War is defined as: a conflict, an armed conflict, hostility, a struggle, political, land war, control of power of war for personal gain, etc.
When you apply war to religion or war for religious reasons it is known as a holy war, a Jihad. It is called "doing God's Work". Now, if you believe this you are on thin ground or no ground at all.
Jewish history and Jewish scripture, which are both some of the oldest forms of writings, were inspired by the Lord. The Koran came much later and was written by a man, Muhammad and he had no angel to help him, in fact, what he had was the devil. History does not bear out Muhammad. There have been many such false prophets since that time: Sun Yen Moon, Budda, H. Armstrong and the Popes of Rome to name a few.
The Jew and Arab are half brothers. The Jewish people are the Lord's spiritual family and the Arab is the carnal, or fleshly earth family, as explained in Jewish history, Old Testament, Genesis. They are, by nature, enemies from birth and shall always be enemies. They were both sons of Abraham (Isaac represents the spiritual son chosen by the Lord God, and Ishmael, the father of the Arab nations, was the worldly side). It is written that Abraham was going to sacrifice his son Isaac from his true love and wife, Sara. The Arabs believe that it was Ishmael, his oldest son whose mother was Hagar, who was to be sacrificed on the Dome of the Rock. The Word of God states that it was to be Isaac who was to be sacrificed, not Ishmael. Muhammad's teachings are not of the Lord.
Muhammad believed that Jesus was the Messiah, but not God. He did not recognize Jesus as a Prophet, even though the Word states so in Jewish History, Old Testament, Genesis.
Muhammad was born in 571 A.D., the year of the elephant. He was a religious man and did not like paganism. His name means "Praised One". He started his mission in 612 A.D. and was involved in religious work. He gave out sacred water from the well of Zamzam. He was about 40 years old. While studying Islam, he received visions and dreams which he said came from the angel, GABRIEL, and it came in bits and pieces over a period of time. The Koran was written from these visions. It was said that Muhammed was the last great, supreme prophet since Adam. This was at a time that the Arabs needed someone, a holy man from God. Muhammad stated that the Koran was written by God. Muhammad knew Jewish history. He fought in many wars of which he called holy. He knew of the Jewish-war-God and their many victories over their enemies, so his holy wars also needed a God, Satan. What he didn't know was the spiritual history, the total picture of the plan of the Lord God. Islam means "submission" to God. Muhammad never understood the Jew or why they were special.
The Lord God never intended man to kill man. Cain and Abel is an example of Jewish History, Old Testament, Genesis 4:9-11. The Lord created all human life through Adam and Eve, and only He can allow or cause life to cease (die). A holy war (Jihad) is man-made, not of the Lord. No creation can change the Word. If you live by the sword, you will die by it and heaven is not your reward. (Read Matt. 26:51.)
God is a God of peace and forgiveness. If we do not forgive, we shall not be forgiven - "...forgive, and ye shall be forgiven." - Luke:6:37. We are told to die for our faith (NOT FIGHT and die for it). A holy war is against the Lord, it is not Christian. Muhammad and Islam is against the Lord and His love. Many will not want to hear this, but the truth is a sword, it cuts and divides.
Muhammad was controlled by satan through evil means, dreams and trances. When he wrote the Koran during the Meccan period and Medina era, he did it on his own, it was not of the Lord God. He was not known as a man of miracles or anything special. He had a few wives and many children. He died June 8, 632 A.D. in Medina, as a lost man.
If the Arabs were truly Christian and believed in the Lord God, then their belief was and is being tested to this day. If they believed in their Islam religion, then by their holy war attitude, they have no faith in the Lord God. If they did, they would not need a holy war and they should know that they cannot overcome the Lord's people...Satan does not and will not win. Muhammad considered himself a prophet. He was not, but he was an angel of light of the devil.
In Islam, you pray five times a day, looking to a holy place, Mecca (Muhammad's birth place). Today, there is no holy place, person or prayer. You live Christ, the life of Jesus everyday. Prayer is talking with the Lord all the time in everything we do on this earth while we are alive. From the Jewish Old Testament, the Arab Koran and the Christian New Testament, there is no way that you can justify killing.
No man can see God as He does not deal directly with man. You must go through Jesus Christ as the Mediator. Muhammad never knew Jesus or that He came to cover all sin by His blood. No man or holy person can change a Jew, Arab, Muslim, Catholic, etc., unless they are searching for the truth and want to know Jesus Christ.
If you are a Christian and belong to Jesus, you cannot fellowship with the enemy. You can not walk with them as they are your enemy and are lost to hell forever. You can only warn them and rebuke them if you love Christ. If you are truly a Christian, the world will hate you without a cause.
"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world....And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. - I John 4:1, 3
