Jesus Is Muslim

“Jesus Is Muslim” Billboards Taken Down–Here’s How

Perhaps you are wondering what I am talking about.  Maybe you missed out on my commentary from last week.

If you did, you need to read it.  Otherwise, this commentary won’t make much sense to you.  The Muslims put up a series of billboards in Columbus, Ohio declaring “Jesus Is Muslim.”

Here is the story.  It is worth the read.  Jesus Is Muslim.

So we held our rally.  It poured down rain the entire time.  It is a wonder that anyone came.

But they did.  About 100 stout hearts battled the elements to stand up for Jesus.  There is a lot of good info on my Facebook page.  We have posted some great moments from the rally…vids of the powerful speakers.  It is worth your time to visit and read the reports.  Go here.

But the bottom line is that the Muslims took down the “Jesus Is Muslim” billboard.  You read that right…THEY TOOK DOWN THE SIGN!!

I don’t think you understand the significance of that statement.  We are not some powerful media outlet…we used social media to draw a crowd.  We didn’t ask them to take the sign down.  We didn’t whine and complain about how they dishonored Jesus.  We didn’t beg them to be nice.

We just showed up.  That’s it.  We showed up on the streets and called them liars.  They took down the sign.

It didn’t take a court order.  It didn’t require us burning down any building.  It didn’t require months of negotiations.  We simply showed up.  We told them their sign was a lie.  They made a weak attempt to defend it.  They said “anyone who submits to God is a Muslim.”  That was all they had.

We never once asked them to take the billboard down.  We believe in free-speech.  We made them blink.  They took the sign down.  Light always causes darkness to flee.

Watch this 2-minute video report.

Today, I would like to share with you a few take-a-ways from this episode.

Muslims use lies and deceit to advance Islam.  Although they call it a “religion of peace,” nothing could be further from the truth.  Just like Christianity, Islam has millions of followers who are “cultural Muslims,”  just like we have many “cultural Christians” in America.  A”cultural” adherent is often one who was born into the faith and has adopted it because it has been passed down generationally from their parents.

Usually, these followers are shallow.  Millions of Muslims are MINO…Muslims In Name Only.  They are peaceful and will not fight to death for their faith.  Just like millions of Christians…Christianity is a religion…not a way of life.  Just like Christians, many Muslims do not understand what their religion teaches.

True believers, on both sides, tend to be more radical.  A devout Christian dies for his faith.  A devout Muslim kills for his.  We better begin to recognize that difference (and soon.)  The closer Muslims get to following Mohammed, the more violent they become.  The closer Christians emulate Jesus, the more loving they will become.  True Christianity is driven by love.  True Islam is driven by hate.

One of the signs on the billboard said MUSLIMS LOVE JESUS TOO.  If that is true, why are the Muslims killing so many of Christ’s followers?

A few pastors did come to our event.  Most are from small, country churches that are not swayed by the glitz and glitter of “ministry.”  There are thousands of faithful, God-fearing pastors who are willing to lay down their lives for their faith.  But they are not unified.  They are not networked.  Many are awake and aware of what is going on in America.

The “soon coming rapture” theory is paralyzing this nation.  Christians will not fight back against evil because they have been taught by their pastors that bad is good, meaning the worse things get, the better it is.  That means Jesus’ return is right around the corner.  To fight evil is to fight against God.  That idea is anathema to Christianity.  Jesus said “occupy until I return.”

Most Christians only occupy pews.  They feel no responsibility to fight for holiness in the world.  They ignore all of the action verbs in the Scriptures like ”Go, contend, speak, wrestle, occupy.”  If they really believed the end was near, they should be running from house to house compelling man to turn to Christ in order to “flee the wrath to come.”  They don’t even follow what they claim to believe.

Showing up DOES make a difference. Here is the truth. Even though we did not ask them to, the Muslims took down the billboard that said JESUS IS MUSLIM. This shows the power of showing up and speaking out. Once we began to shine the light on the Truth, THE MUSLIMS TOOK THE LYING BILLBOARD DOWN. Thanks to everyone who braved the weather. Prayer mixed with action does make a difference…just as faith without works is dead, so is prayer without action!! GOD’S NOT DEAD. JUST SHOW UP AND LET GOD SHOW OFF!!! The Muslims know we are watching…

What is Love?  Let me ask you a question…which is a greater demonstration of love? Helping someone after they have been hurt…or preventing them from being hurt? For the most part, our churches are hospitals where the sick are repaired…rather than fortresses where God’s soldiers are trained. If helping someone after they are injured is love…isn’t protecting them before they are injured also love? By speaking the truth to our friends, we can prevent them from being injured rather than helping them be healed. Jesus prayed till blood came out his pores…and then he got up and went…aren’t you glad He did more than pray? Prayer is the power to propel our actions….prayer makes action effectual.

You can’t just pray…and you can’t just go. You must do both. Prayer softens up the enemy…like the air force during a battle. Prayer softens up the enemy so that the ground troops can be more effective. Jesus prayed and went…most Christians only pray; very few go. When you go, the power of prayer can be felt. The idea that God will do for us what we can do for ourselves is misguided. The Word says our faith can move mountains; but sometimes moving the mountain requires us getting a shovel and digging. Why would God end abortion when He gave US the power to end it? Pray and Go. That is the answer.

Most Americans knew very little about Islam before 911.  If you were like me, most of my knowledge of Islam came from the movie “Raiders of The Lost Ark” and Indiana Jones’ journey throughout the Middle East.  Since then, the Muslims have been hard at work teaching us some things that simply are not true.  Most pastors are frighteningly ignorant of Islam.

Our featured speaker last Saturday was Rev. Rusty Thomas.  His fiery speech is posted on our Facebook page.  Permit me to summarize some of the great points he made. He addressed Islam from a legal, historical, and biblical perspective.

(History) Wherever Islam protests in democratic nations, you will observe signs that expose their ideology. “To Hell with Freedom,” “Down with Democracy,” “Islam Will Rule the World,” and other such signs are common place. Once Islam takes root and grows, soon other demands are enacted. Sharia law seeks to supplant the laws of the land in free nations.

Go to any nation where Islam rules and try to find a hint of freedom of speech and religion. You will search in vain. There are only three choices granted in places where Islam dominates. They are: convert, become their slave (Dhimmi), or die. There are no other freedoms, no other choices. Every nation that lets the Islamic camel’s nose into the tent of freedom eventually rues the day.

(Legal) Supreme Court Justice Joseph Storey, who served the high court from 1811-1845, commenting on the meaning of the First Amendment stated, “The real object of the First Amendment was not to countenance, much less to advance Mohammedanism, or Judaism, or infidelity, by prostrating Christianity, but to exclude all rivalry among Christian sects [denominations] and to prevent any national ecclesiastical patronage of the national government.”

No other faith, worldview, or philosophy of man is capable to set men free from the tyranny of sin from within or despotism of men from without. As America resorts back to the brutal darkness of paganism, it is not a coincidence that she is losing her freedoms as well. Islam may very well prove to be the harsh taskmaster to drive home this reality, if our nation does not repent.

(Biblical) No man, religion, worldview, or philosophy has the authority to define or redefine Jesus Christ. He has already revealed Himself in the 66 books that comprise the Holy Bible. God’s Word warns, “Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar” (Proverbs 30:6). Ecclesiastes 3:14 concurs, “I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him.” Jesus stated, “You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me” (John 5:39). Every word of the Bible points to Him. He is the Word made flesh (John 1:14). No other so-called “holy book” either claims or comes close to this revelation.

If this billboard (Jesus is Muslim) was presented as evidence in a court room, it would be considered perjury. Thus, in the court of public opinion and in religious circles, the billboard needs to be judged as slander, heresy, and blasphemy.”

I used to tell my football teams that often the hardest part of winning is simply showing up.

We showed up, and they took the billboard down.  Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!

I wonder what else would happen if we simply showed up…

The Supernatural Thing an Ex-Muslim Claims Guided Him to Christianity

Author Nabeel Qureshi has detailed his journey from Islam to Christianity in his new book, “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus,” describing how he believes a God-given vision and dreams led him to embrace Jesus Christ.

Qureshi, a lifelong Muslim who was born in the U.S. after his parents immigrated from Pakistan, recently recalled a series of events that led him to appeal to God to answer a spiritual question that was eating away at his soul: Should he follow Jesus or Muhammad?

“I needed to hear from God himself who he was,” he wrote in an op-ed for Christianity Today.

Despite years of embracing and defending Islam,Qureshi said he became “overwhelmed by the evidence” for Christianity during his college years as he more intensely studied Islam, feeling as though the faith of his childhood couldn’t withstand scrutiny.

Qureshi met David Wood at Old Dominion University in Virginia, a classmate and a Christian who quickly became his best friend. The two would frequently debate theology, leading Qureshi to begin questioning Islam’s pertinence.

After graduating college, Qureshi said he began regularly praying and asking God to show himself, and he said the Lord answered.

“I remember in the Quran it says, ‘Allah hears those who call out to him.’ In the Bible it says, ‘Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find. Knock and the door shall be opened,’” Qureshi told the Christian Post. “So when I was asking God for these dreams I’m basically saying, ‘God of theQuran and God of the Bible, both of you are saying that you will answer me if I call out to you, so whoever you are God, I need you now.’”

He claims to have had a vision and three dreams by the time he completed his first year of medical school. There was one dream that he said was particularly memorable.

“In it I was standing at the threshold of a strikingly narrow door, watching people take their seats at a wedding feast. I desperately wanted to get in, but I was not able to enter, because I had yet to accept my friend David’s invitation to the wedding,” he wrote. “When I awoke, I knew what God was telling me, but I sought further verification. It was then that I found the parable of the narrow door, in Luke 13:22–30. God was showing me where I stood.”

While he felt God was guiding him toward Christianity, Qureshi struggled with the idea of abandoning Islam — something he knew would separate him from his family and bring his parents shame. But he said he simply couldn’t escape the inevitable.

He converted, finding intense comfort in the Bible, but says his parents were “shattered” and remain that way even today.

In his interview with the Christian Post, Qureshi explained that Muslim countries don’t share the Western ideal of being able to “commune with God,” noting that this is a Christian concept. Dreams, many times, are the solution to this connective problem.

“In Islam, for example, people don’t expect to have God talk back to them personally, as the Holy Spirit isn’t living in them,” he said. “They ask God for guidance through dreams; that’s like the one way that Muslims expect to hear from God.”

Qureshi shared examples from his own upbringing, including his father’s use of the salat istikharaprayer, an invocation to ask God to guide one’s path. He said his father would use this when attempting to get answers about taking a new job or when making other major choices.

This practice comes from a hadith, or Islamic tradition, in which the Prophet Muhammad said, “The dreams of the faithful are prophetic,” according to Qureshi. Another hadith reads, “dreams are 1/46th of revelation.” Both of these sentiments are part of Islamic tradition.

This isn’t the first time a Muslim-turned-Christian has claimed that Jesus reached out through a dream.

Muslims Sue Trucking Company for This!

While Obama is willing to violate Hobby Lobby’s rights, but things are very different when it comes to companies not conforming to Islam.

Mess with Islam and Obama will PUNISH your company.

Directly from the EEOC website is this press release:

PEORIA, Ill. – Star Transport, Inc., a trucking company based in Morton, Ill., violated federal law by failing to accommodate two employees because of their religion, Islam, and discharging them, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit filed today.

The lawsuit alleged that Star Transport refused to provide two employees with an accommodation of their religious beliefs when it terminated their employment because they refused to deliver alcohol. According to EEOC District Director John P. Rowe, who supervised administrative investigation prior to filing the lawsuit, “Our investigation revealed that Star could have readily avoided assigning these employees to alcohol delivery without any undue hardship, but chose to force the issue despite the employees’ Islamic religion.”

Failure to accommodate the religious beliefs of employees, when this can be done without undue hardship, violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination on the basis of religion. The EEOC filed suit, (EEOC v. Star Transport, Inc., Civil Action No. 13 C 01240-JES-BGC,  U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois in Peoria, assigned to U.S. District Judge James E. Shadid), after first attempting to reach a voluntary settlement through its statutory conciliation process.  The agency seeks back pay and compensatory and punitive damages for the fired truck drivers and an order barring future discrimination and other relief.

John Hendrickson, the EEOC Regional Attorney for the Chicago District Office said, “Everyone has a right to observe his or her religious beliefs, and employers don’t get to pick and choose which religions and which religious practices they will accommodate.  If an employer can reasonably accommodate an employee’s religious practice without an undue hardship, then it must do so. That is a principle which has been memorialized in federal employment law for almost 50 years, and it is why EEOC is in this case.”

The EEOC’s Chicago District Office is responsible for processing charges of discrimination, administrative enforcement and the conduct of agency litigation in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and North and South Dakota, with Area Offices in Milwaukee and Minneapolis.

What dictates “undue hardship”? The fact is that a driver shouldn’t have to care what his trucking company is transporting, as long as the cargo is LEGAL!

Here again the government is telling the free market that companies are not in business for shareholders or profits, but for the social engineering and experimentation by the government.

Muslims Conduct ‘Human Sacrifice’ on Video

Newly released videos show Muslims conducting “ritual human sacrifices” by slitting the throats of their victims or putting a bullet in their heads, according to researcher Walid Shoebat, a former member of the Palestine Liberation Organization who converted to Christianity.

Shoebat’s report includes several videos of ritual sacrifices. He noted the speaker in one video uses the term Qurban just before gunfire erupts and men lined up in a row fall to the floor one by one. Shoebat explained that the Arabic term “can only signify a sacrifice, which indicates that the filmed slaughter is nothing but a ritual human sacrifice.”

Another video shows the throat of the “sacrifice” being slit with a knife.

“Christians are being killed in these very rituals every day, and the bloodshed will not stop. We must work together to rescue them,” Shoebat said.

He has been working with a Syrian Orthodox nun, Sister Hatune Dogan, to assist persecuted Christians in Syria, Iraq, Jordan and Turkey.

“For over a year now we have been writing and warning the world on both the realities and the revival of Islamic human sacrifice,” he said. “Though Islam is a Christian heresy, its pagan roots and elements cannot be ignored, which is why I prefer to call Muslims pagan heretics, or heretical pagans.”

Shoebat describes himself as a former “radicalized Muslim willing to die for the cause of jihad.”

According to his biography, he arrived in the United States in 1978 to study in Chicago where he was recruited at a “terror conference” by Jamal Said, the founder of the Islamic Association of Palestine, a front group for Hamas that later launched the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Shoebat said he converted to Christianity in 1994. He now is raising funds to assist Middle East Christians through a foundation he created called RescueChristians.org.

WND recently reported that Sister Dogan claimed members of the jihadist factions in Syria trying to oust President Bashar al-Assad are draining the blood of Christians they behead and selling vials to Islamic radicals for $100,000 apiece.

The Christians, she said, are beheaded in ceremonies in which they are forced to kneel, with their hands and feet bound as the Muslim radicals read a death sentence imposed because the victim refuses to renounce Christianity and embrace Islam.

WND also has reported that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, considered to be the most ruthless of the Sunni Islamic militant groups fighting in Syria, has ordered a Christian community in Raqqa, Syria, to pay nearly 38 pounds of gold as a “guarantee of their safety.” The alternative offered was death.

The videos discovered by Shoebat are graphic.

Editor’s Note: EXTREME CAUTION ADVISED.The following videos show brutal executions.

A row of men:

An individual:

Shoebat said the Islamic prayer in the video “is reminiscent to the prayer said in the sacrifice scene in the film ‘Apocalypto,’ which is historically accurate in regards to its depictions of the bloody Aztec rituals.”

“What Islam is is an Aztec-like religion of the pagan world, riddled with human sacrifice, cannibalism, and a pool of human gore,” he said.

A video posted on YouTube shows Hatune presenting the results of an investigation in which she found women held captive by Muslims for ransom had been raped and mutilated. She also presents evidence for her claim Muslims are beheading Christians and selling their blood.

See Sister Hatune’s presentation of her findings:

Previously, Shoebat published a video of Sunni Muslims playing soccer with the heads of the people they murdered.

WND Middle East correspondent Michael Maloof, a former senior security policy analyst in the office of the secretary of defense, said the “vociferous wrath” from jihadists that Hatune is receiving because of her vigorous effort to protect Christians has made her a prime target of al-Qaida and its affiliate, the Jabhat al-Nusra.

“Al-Nusra, which wants to establish caliphates in Syria and throughout the Middle East, has amply demonstrated that it will kill any ‘infidel,’ even Muslims, who do not subscribe to a strict form of Shariah,” Maloof said. “This places all Christians and other minorities in peril which, in turn, puts Sister Hatune and her companions in al-Nusra’s crosshairs.”
