There are 2 main Muslim sects
the Shiites and the Sunni.
Whenever two groups differ in Islam that results in bloodshed – lots of it.
It isn’t like when the Catholic Church murdered and tortured well over a million Bible believing Christians – not at all. You would be hard pressed to find any real Bible believing Christians seeking vengeance by killing Catholics. That’s because they Believe what God said in Romans 12:19 – 21.
(Read “Foxes book of martyrs” or “The Trail of Blood” by Dr. J.M. Carroll, for a true look at Church history.)
“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Rom 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
Rom 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”
By definition Christianity is the “religion” of peace, and the exception proves nothing except the heart of man is evil continually (Genesis 6:5).
Islam is the religion of hate.
This is what caused the split in Islam.
Muhammad died of poisoning in
632 AD and He left no successor.
SOME said that Muhammad’s successor must be a blood relative and they picked Ali (Ali bin Abu Talib).
ALI was Muhammad’s cousin and son-in-law.
These will become known as Shiites.
Others wanted anyone who was qualified to be the ultimate leader of a caliphate.
These will become known as Sunni.
Right now it is 632 A.D.,
Muhammad is dead
and Abu Baker is chosen as CALIPH. He is not a blood relative so the Shiites do not fully accept him, but they tolerate it.
A Caliph is the sole authority of a Caliphate.
A Caliphate is
when all Muslims band together under the Caliph and Sharia law.
It is an absolute theocracy, with the Caliph acting as Allah’s unique man, and like a Catholic pope he is infallible.
A CALIPHATE IS RULED UNDER Sharia law. And it recognizes no borders.
A “caliph” rules the caliphate and he has authority somewhat like a Catholic Pope had during the crusades and the Spanish inquisition, only he is much more powerful!
Ali would wait for his turn.
After Abu Baker died
Umar was chosen and
Ali’s supporters murdered Uthman.
And Ali – at last – became Caliph in 656 AD
Then in 661 AD Ali was murdered.
NICE GROUP OF PEACEFUL
godly folks wouldn’t you say?
[To know how a Christian should act read the Sermon on the Mount in
Matthew 5-7 and Luke 6:20-49. However that will not get you to heaven only being born again will accomplish that.
(Matthew 7:21- 23 and John 3 and pay attention to the last verse in that chapter)]
President Bush who is said to be born again, thought that a taste of democracy would change their hearts from jihad to peace –
Are you kidding me?
Talk about an example of –
those who deny history are bound to repeat it.
Only Jesus can change hearts from total depravity to being acceptable in the beloved (Ephesians 1:6-7).
It is called the gospel (1st Corinthians 15:1-3) and being BORN AGAIN is the process (John 3:3).
After Ali was murdered
his son, Hassan, became Caliph.
Then when Hassan died
his son who would have been the next Caliph –
THE TWELFTH – disappeared AT HIS FATHERS FUNERAL.
Today the Shiites are still waiting for the twelfth caliph to show up. When he does he will be the long awaited Mahdi. All of Islam believes in the coming Mahdi however only Shiites believe that the Mahdi will be the twelfth caliph.
The Sunnis, the name means:
“one who follows the traditions of the prophets”,
They do not require the Caliph to be a blood relative of Muhammad and today they are the overwhelming majority.
The last caliphate was the Ottoman Empire, and Suleiman was its Caliph when it was at its zenith.
Suleiman the Magnificent, was a Sunni.
Suleiman I /ˌsʊlɪˈmɑːn/, known as “the Magnificent” in the West and “Kanuni” (the Lawgiver) in the East, (6 November 1494 – 7 September 1566) was the tenth and longest-reigning Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, from 1520 to his death in 1566.
The Ottoman Empire expanded to cover the Balkans, Hungary, Spain and even reached the gates of Vienna.
It officially ended on March 3, 1924
The newly formed ISIS is about reestablishing the Caliphate. They say one of their priority goals is to destroy both Israel and America.
ISIS is Sunni. If the Shiite don’t get ya the Sunni will.
All that brings to mind
Genesis 16:11 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.
Gen 16:12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.
Verse 12 is spot on as a description of the Muslims as we know them today, and as history describes them. They are at war with all who are non-Muslim [called Kafir by the Muslims]. And also other sects of Islam that differ from theirs.
Muslims reject friendships with non-Muslims. Before you continue reading please understand that there are many, hopefully the majority of Muslims that do not buy into the Islam hate doctrine. However they are not true believers in the core teaching of historic Islam. They are the smart ones, too bad they are murdered as soon as they begin to shout it from the roof tops.
As you read the following remember that YOU are a KAFIR
I copied the following from
It is kind of long but at least scan it so you can see what the Quran actually says about Kafirs. The references such as 40:35 are located in the Koran. The Quran use the same method the Bible uses to locate specific passages. 40:35 would be the fortieth chapter and the thirty fifth verse in the Koran. The Koran was only written by one man so there are no book titles such as “Joshua” or “Matthew” as we have in our Bible. The Muslims have three holy books the Quran, Hadith and the Sunna.
QURAN – What Allah told Muhamad
HADITH – Muhamad’s sayings and these are needed to understand the Quran.
SUNNA tell what Muhamad did, and these also are used to interpret the Quran.
Okay here it is
“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.”
the above by “Jarod Zorro — August 28, 2008 “
The above was kind of a parenthesis,
in preaching it is called a rabbit trail.
So let’s get on with it.
There has always been way more Sunnis then Shiites
THE Sunnis and Shiites mostly HATE each other. However they both hate Israel and Christianity more then they hate each other.
Every anti-Semite is a bundle of hate, violence and antichrist.
It is just more obvious with some then with others.
When Churchill drew up Iraq’s borders he Chose a Sunni and put him in charge over Iraq.
The Sunnis being the minority, had to
rule with violence and severity.
Saddam Hussein was good at that.
Then George Bush removed Saddam Hussein.
Bush wanted democracy so he encouraged Iraq to vote for a president.
Sunni voted Sunni
Shiite voted Shiite, which is the Islam of IRAN, and the majority in Iraq.
Iraq voted in a Shiite, Nouri al-Maliki
President Bush had hoped that Maliki would want democracy for his country.
BUSH was wrong.
Muslim DNA rejects democracy.
They have to reject democracy because
EVERY good Muslim wants a theocracy with sharia law- which is called a caliphate.
When BUSH went into Iraq he thought that any people who had suffered as the Iraqi’s HAD UNDER Saddam Hussein’s rule
would surely welcome DEMOCRACY and as a result democracy would
spread like wild fire across the Middle East.
DEMOCRACY AND ISLAM IS AN OXYMORON
Because today, 2014, there are over a billion living Muslims someone wrote:
“The United States has been careful to not ascribe any culpability to the religion of Islam, but in fact has gone out of its way to affirm that individual terrorists act contrary to the beliefs of Islam.”
· Bush thought that democracy would change Iraq into a peace and freedom loving nation.
Bush was naive He should have known that
the gospel changes people, not democracy
Democracy will fail every time without Christ.
America, right now, today, is experiencing the demise of Christian freedom. Read your Bible that is what always happens when a God blessed country rejects God for carnal pleasure and liberal theology.
America, has rejected the Bible God has blessed and the Bible that Satan hates, the King James 1611. And in rejecting it, the “Christian” church has substituted modern up-to-date bibles edited by the “trust me because I am a scholar” crowd, which has resulted in Christian apathy and heresy. And, as a result America is now a carnal nation, a nation that worships the pleasures of the flesh. A nation without rigorous standards, and no real Biblical faith.
[Israel in the Old Testament was God’s example for a God fearing nation that rejects God’s commandments [Joshua 1:8], and to show that God demands all nations to obey His commandments He gave us the example of Assyria.
Assyria repented under Jonah’s preaching around 760 B.C. but later turned back to their wallowing in the mud, (2nd Peter 2:21). Because of Assyria’s later wickedness God used the Meads and the Persians to decimate it in 612 B.C.
Here are some Bible verses about the absolute control that God has over all nations.
Psa 22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
Psa 22:28 For the kingdom is the LORD’S: and he is the governor among the nations.
And Dan 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
And Dan 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.]
The American constitution was written for a Christian nation and it will only work for a Christian nation.
Today, we are the opposite of a Christian nation. We a carnal nation, and that is the way America votes.
We are a “lets have a party” nation of sport trivia, TV, drugs and sex. A tolerant nation calling good evil and evil good we even have a name for it – situation ethics.
the Bible says
Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isa 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Isa 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
Isa 5:23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
I cut out a piece from the above to revise and paste it somewhere where it would go with the flow, but then I figured I would just put it at the end for a kind of summery. I hope you will read it because it gives new information and redundancy is the key to learning.
So here it is:
· The followers of Ali will became known as SHIITES.
Shiite means “party” or “partisans” of Ali
The 11th Imam died in 874 AD and at his funeral his young son, who would have become
the twelfth Imam disappeared.
This twelfth Imam is known to the Shiites as the coming Mahdi, the Muslim Messiah.
Those who believe that are called the “Twelvers”.
Iran, Iraq and Yemen are mostly Shiite
and today, in 2014, they are waiting for the twelfth Imam – the Mahdi – Hassan’s son who disappeared in 874 A.D. to show up.
When he does it is said that he will kill
– murder –
every Jew and every Christian who refuses to convert to Islam, and the Muslim Jesus will help him.
Then after that everyone else who is a non-Muslim is murdered.
Okay they murder um all for Allah, men women and babies – all of them – as quickly as they can.
That is what Islam the religion of peace believes and teaches,
which means “well-trodden path” or “tradition”
are those who insist that the Caliph – the leader of a Caliphate – must be someone best suited for the position. They insists that a blood relative connection was not necessary.
Today the Muslims are 90 % Sunnis and 10% Shiites.
If you have been following the news you will understand when I say that ISIS is Sunni. If you do not know who ISIS is or why you should care then you are a current event dunce – shame on you,
watch the news or even better go to
At least once a day.
You can gain much knowledge about current events just by reading the interesting headlines posted there.
Try it, it can be fun. Do that every day and when you go to work you will soon be respected as a person who knows current events, or at least your eyes wont glaze over when current events are discussed, or your ignorant exclamation, “I Didn’t know that!”.
I hope you got something from the Middle East parts one through four. It is serious business as the God of Genesis continues dealing with nations and now today with Israel being highlighted it appears that He is close to closing the circle of prophecy.
I am always careful not to be adamant that we are living in the last days just before the rapture takes all Christians out of here and transports us to heaven. Oh what a glorious day that will be. But just between you and me I said in my New year’s blog that I had a feeling that this will be a pivotal year, and so far it has proved to be true.
Well there it is, I now know what I will do for next week.
THE YEAR SO FAR IN REVIEW.
