When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. (Isaiah 59:19)

All over the planet a new reality is dawning. ISLAM has vowed to conquer the whole world. Here are some of the words of Hamas Leader Khaled Masha?al which he delivered in a Damascus mosque, spelling out what myriads of others daily are saying in their mosques and through their media channels:

[ The following are excerpts from an address by Hamas leader Khaled Mash’al at the Al-Murabit Mosque in Damascus. The address was delivered following the Friday sermon at the mosque, and was aired on Al-Jazeera TV on February 3, 2006. To view this clip, follow this link. ]

“We say to this West, which does not act reasonably, and does not learn its lessons: By Allah, you will be defeated. You will be defeated in Palestine, and your defeat there has already begun. True, it is Israel that is being defeated there, but when Israel is defeated, its path is defeated, those who call to support it are defeated, and the cowards who hide behind it and support it are defeated. Israel will be defeated, and so will whoever supported or supports it.

“America will be defeated in Iraq. Wherever the [Islamic] nation is targeted, its enemies will be defeated, Allah willing. The nation of Muhammad is gaining victory in Palestine. The nation of Muhammad is gaining victory in Iraq, and it will be victorious in all Arab and Muslim lands.

‘Their multitudes will be defeated and turn their backs [and flee].’ These fools will be defeated, the wheel of time will turn, and times of victory and glory will be upon our nation, and the West will be full of remorse, when it is too late.

“They think that history has ended with them. They do not know that the law of Allah cannot be changed or replaced. ‘You shall not find a substitute for the law of Allah. You shall not find any change to the law of Allah.’ Today, the Arab and Islamic nation is rising and awakening, and it will reach its peak, Allah willing. It will be victorious. It will link the present to the past. It will open up the horizons of the future. It will regain the leadership of the world. Allah willing, the day is not far off.

Don’t you see that they believe they are capable of using democracy to deceive the people, but then democracy is turned against them? Don’t you see that they are spending their money in efforts to block the way of Allah, to thwart Hamas, to defeat it, and to help those whom they want, but that [this plot] is turned against them? They are not acting reasonably.

“They do not understand the Arab or Muslim mentality.

Tomorrow, our nation will sit on the throne of the world. This is not a figment of the imagination, but a fact. Tomorrow we will lead the world, Allah willing. Apologize today, before remorse will do you no good. Our nation is moving forwards, and it is in your interest to respect a victorious nation.

“Our nation will be victorious. When it reaches the leadership of the world, and controls its own decisions, then it will prevent this overt interference [in our affairs], and its pillaging of natural resources, and will prevent these recurring offenses against our land, against our nation, and against our holy places – then you will regret it.

Before Israel Dies, it Must Be Humiliated and Degraded

Mash’al: “Before Israel dies, it must be humiliated and degraded. Allah willing, before they die, they will experience humiliation and degradation every day. America will be of no avail to them. Their generals will be of no avail to them. The last of their generals has been forgotten. Allah has made him disappear. He’s over. Gone is that Sharon behind whose back they would hide and find shelter, and with whom they would feel relatively secure.

Today they have frail leaders, who don’t even know where our Lord placed them.

“Allah willing, we will make them lose their eyesight, we will make them lose their brains.

“Israel has begun to sense that its superiority has come to an end. Its army, which has superior conventional weapons – the air force, the armored corps, and the missiles – there are no longer wars in which these are used.

This is a frightening reality, and it draws nearer by the day, until it may indeed conquer the whole world.

Tiny little Israel is one of the few reasons that ISLAM has not yet fully conquered the West. But once this nation has succumbed, swallowed up by the ferocious hate-filled forces of ISLAM, the way will be free for ISLAM to swallow up the rest of the Western world. Once they have beaten the U.S. in Iraq and Afghanistan and Israel, securing victory in the Middle East, there will be little to stop them on their path to bring the whole Western World into subjection, and then become the conquerors of the whole world, exactly as they all believe Allah has long intended that they will do.

It is frightening because of all the violence, terror and cruelty that will accompany this conquest. We already see it happening all over the world. ISLAM can kill, murder, lynch, torture and make holy war, all in the name of Allah; ISLAM can burn and destroy churches and synagogues as they do ? misusing Christian and Jewish sanctuaries their terrorist use as they have in Lebanon, Bethlehem and other places; ISLAM can desecrate, confiscate or shred bibles; ISLAM can publish monstrous caricatures about Jews and Christians; ISLAM?s followers can explode themselves as suicide bombers in unsuspecting crowds of people, blow up planes full of passengers in midair, or fly planes through trade towers and the Pentagon ? this all in the name of Allah. All of this is permitted.

But should MUSLIMS in turn be dealt even a minuscule percentage of such affronts or indignities themselves, literally all hell breaks loose: They burn the flags of the U.S., Denmark, Israel and others; they torch thousands of cars in Paris; they demonstrate with fury and hate and no one who gets in their way is safe.

They will demonstrate with violence all across Muslim lands when their religion is dishonored, even as they simultaneously burn synagogues and trample upon everything that is holy and dear to other faiths. In the Old City of Jerusalem alone they destroyed 53 synagogues before the Six Day War.

European pastors who still dare to speak up about Israel in the light of God?s Word have had to go into hiding.

England has been served notice that it will be the first Muslim-dominated country in Europe, as British Muslim leaders proclaimed in their big mosque in Regency Park: ?Our way to conquer Europe runs via London.?

And so it goes on. They demand respect, freedom and their right to build mosques all over the world but Christians cannot build one church in Saudi Arabia and cannot bring even their own private bibles on the plane with them. Where is the tolerance so freely given by nearly every Western Country to ISLAM in ISLAM?s own motherland towards Christians or Jews? It is non-existent. ?We shall fight on Saturday, and then on Sunday,? Muslims chant; first the Jews and then the Christians. It is already happening all over the world!

Once they are the masters, there will be no escape from their cruelty. Innumerable poor Christians are already suffering their scourge: Egypt?s Copts, Christians in the Philippines, in Pakistan, in Indonesia, and even (as we have said) in Europe. There preachers have had to go into hiding ? as author Salman Rushdie once did ? because, in their love for Israel and the Bible, they have taken a stand for God?s people and now are threatened in their own countries, their own co-national Muslims promising them violence and death.

Once these Muslims are in full control, there will be neither escape nor any chance to speak our minds. Yes, we will speak out once or twice. But then, as under the Nazis, we?ll be picked up and taken to God knows where.

What, then, can we still do at this very, very late hour?

Three things come to mind, and I believe God has inspired me to see them:

One: We must do everything possible to shore up Israel, asking God daily to show us how we can support this courageous little land and her people in prayer, but also in deed. As long as Israel exists alive, she will be a barricade against ISLAM?s further and total conquest of other parts of this world. But once the Islamic forces now under the leadership of Hamas have succeeded in fully trampling Israel underfoot, their way will be free to further successful conquest of the West.

As the Bible clearly warns: The nations and kingdoms which will not be willing to serve and support Israel will perish and come to ruin themselves (see Isaiah 60:12).

Two: As Paul writes: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.  (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).

To explain what some of these weapons for believers are, Paul enumerates them in his epistle to the Ephesians, chapter six verses 10 to 18:

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. Three: Finally when all else has failed we must, like Jesus, the Apostles, and the early Church, be prepared to suffer and even be willing to die. It may be that through suffering and martyrdom God, as through His Son, will accomplish the greatest victory over Satan and all his sinister forces.

This is well expressed in the Revelation of John when it says: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time. (Revelation 12:11, 12)

The PLO was instituted in 1964 three years before the six day war in June 1967 when Israel, in a war of self-defense, recovered the so-called “West Bank”, now seen and proclaimed by nearly everybody as the quintessence crux of the Middle East problem.
This however shows that the PLO (All Palestine needs to be liberated) was not formed to erect a Palestinian state on the ‘so called’ West Bank but was instituted to replace all of Israel with a Muslim Palestinian State.

A Word From Zion

The New Testament Basis for the Restoration of Israel

Jesus was asked by His disciples whether He would restore the kingdom to Israel at that time, to which He replied:
Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
