The Modern Day Battle of Tours Continued

This map shows the countries of the world with the largest population of Muslims in the dark green areas. As you can tell, Israel is surrounded on every side by a people who believe in a book that says that Jews are not humans and deserve to die.
The Bible teaches us that the Great Tribulation will be a time of Jacob's/Israel's trouble. It will be a time when Anti-Semitism will be on the rise. It will be a time when the Jews have become a byword among the nations; and it will be a time when the Man of Sin known as the Antichrist will arise on the scene. Those who do not accept the mark of this beast and worship his false image will be beheaded for their beliefs. Now, I cannot say for certain that the Antichrist will be a Muslim. But Fundamentalist Jihadist Muslims do behead those that they consider infidels.

The following is an excerpt from an article on

Ahmadinejad: Iran will support Hamas until collapse of Israel
Tehran - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed Friday to keep supporting the Palestinian militant group Hamas until the collapse of Israel. The news network Khabar quoted Ahmadinejad as saying in a phone conversation with Hamas leader and deposed Palestinian prime minister Ismail Haniya that Iran considered supporting the Palestinians its religious and national duty and would stay beside the Palestinian nation "until the big victory feast which is collapse of the Zionist
regime."The Iranian president said that the continued Hamas resistance against Israel and the group's achievements would always be "a source of pride for all Muslims."

The Iranian President as you have read has vowed the collapse of Israel. While we know from studying the Bible that God will protect Israel until the end, we know that the Muslims will do all they can to destroy Israel, our main democratic ally in the Middle East. The thing about Muslims is that even the Koran teaches that it is ok to lie in order to get ahead. That is why, as soon as they start getting defeated in a war, they will call for a cease-fire, after which they soon violate that cease-fire when they have regrouped. And this is the type people that some of our politicians have suggested we sit down with in negotiations without any pre-conditions.

Again, if the Lord tarries his coming, we have got to stand up and be counted. AND KNOW BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT GOD IS IN CONTROL!!! The Psalmist said in Psalm 24:1 - "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world, and those that dwell therein." He has everything worked out according to His perfect plan. Today, I was studying further about the Battle of Tours in AD 732, when Martel's French army withstood the Islamic advance into Southern France. That Battle took place on October 1st, 732. That happened to be the Jewish Holiday of Shabbat Shuva, which takes place between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). The Scripture reading, according to that corresponds to this holy day is Joel 2:15-17. Be blessed when you read this!!!

Joe 2:15
Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Joe 2:16
Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Joe 2:17
Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where [is] their God?
Isn't it amazing that at the same time Martel was turning back the Islamic tide in Southern France, the Jewish people were praying for God to spare his people!?! They also prayed that God would not let the heathen rule over them and give His heritage to reproach! They didn't want people to be able to say, "Where is their God?" Today, we face a similar dilemma as did Martel. We can sit idly by while Jihad is waged against us and pretend it doesn't exist, or we can stand up and be counted! God's name is on the line. We shouldn't wage a jihad of the sword as Bin Laden is doing, but we should contend for the truth in the battle of ideas. There two opposite worldviews in conflict here. We must for the sake of our future get involved, and remember Christ has already won the victory on Calvary. We just need to stand in confidence in that victory!!!

May the Lord bless His people to call the war what it is. I thank God we know how this story ends, and I pray for His motivation to his people as we sit here among plenty.

Amen Brother! We are in a struggle not simply with Muslim Nation States but principalities and powers that have controlled that region of the world since the days of the Flood. May God use us in these last days to see souls saved and people come to the knowledge of the truth!
