Islam is the second largest and fastest growing religion in the world. While it’s clear that ISIS is the most brutal of its factions, the reality is that peaceful people around the globe are facing potential life-or-death situations based on how their governments respond to this global Muslim expansion.
The main focus at this point for peaceful governments is ISIS. And it’s not surprising, given the brutality of the terrorist organization. But let’s say that ISIS is defeated, the question becomes, is this fight ever going to end?
To answer that question, we need to understand Islam.
What is Islam’s ultimate goal?
The establishment of a worldwide Caliphate.
Before we go into the details, let me get something very important out of the way: many uninformed people think that Christianity and Islam are similar. Christians are waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ so that He establishes His millennial Kingdom. Muslims are waiting for their messiah, Madhi, and his rule over a global caliphate based on sharia law.
What is the difference between the Christianity and Islam?
It’s massive. Let me explain...
You see, Muslims don’t worship Jesus as we all know, but most importantly (and please pay attention to this), Muslims do NOT look to Jesus as their SAVIOR. This is a critical difference – we are waiting for OUR SAVIOR. The key word is SAVIOR.
So, what are Muslims waiting for?
They are waiting for Madhi, the twelfth ruler since Muhammad, to establish a Worldwide CALIPHATE to DOMINATE all mankind under SHARIA LAW. They’re NOT waiting for a savior – Muslims are waiting for a DICTATOR.
ALL Muslims are waiting for this dictator. ALL OF THEM. Whether or not they’re terrorists is not the point – the point is what is ISLAM’S ULTIMATE GOAL? If you paid attention, now you know that their goal is the establishment of a KINGDOM OF TERROR!
The difference between Islamic terrorists and the rest of the Muslim world is the method they use to accomplish this goal. Terrorists think that the continued escalation of war and violence will lead to the final apocalypse and the appearing of their messiah. ‘Moderate’ Muslims think gradualism is a better approach. But make no mistake, terrorists or not, all Muslims want a worldwide caliphate. They agree on their common goal…
Just to give you a flavor of what gradualist Muslims think, let me share with you what the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, said in 2007:
‘The conquest of Rome, the conquest of Italy and Europe means that Islam will return to Europe once again. Must this conquest necessarily be through war? No, it is not necessary. There is such a thing as a peaceful conquest. The peaceful conquest has foundations in this religion. So I imagine that Islam will conquer Europe without using violence. It will do so through predication and ideology’.
Later on, in a 2012 interview he said something terrifying…’there will be no chopping off hands for the first five years’.
No chopping off hands for five years. Isn’t that a relief?
Terror now or terror after the conquest, the ultimate goal of every single Muslim is the global expansion of Islam and terror rule.
Now let me ask you this, do you still think Islam is a religion of peace like President Obama said?
Of course not.
And don’t let anyone tell you that Christians and Muslims are the same. We’re not the same. Our Kingdom is Heaven. Theirs is HELL.
Now let me ask you: do you think moderate Muslims are really moderate? They may claim to be, but are they?
Matthew 7:13-15: “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

When Leftists mock Christians, they usually try to appeal to ‘reason’, pointing out that Christians must be really stupid and uneducated for believing in a ‘guy’ whom they have never seen.
As a former atheist, I’m going to tell you upfront that my conversion to Christianity had absolutely nothing to do with emotions and everything to do with REASON. My conversion started with Economics, followed by Politics and ended in Faith. I REASONED all my way to Jesus Christ.
You see, God makes sense. The existence of God makes sense and you cannot explain Creation without the Creator.
Just to give you a short version of my conversion let me tell you that I was born and raised a SOCIALIST – big government of any kind. Little by little I started listening to ‘the other side’ from an economic point of view.
Because as a Finance professional, I’ve learnt to appreciate numbers – either a company is making money or it isn’t; either a certain strategy is working or it isn’t…either a POLICY is working or it isn’t. Socialist policies, I determined, weren’t working.
So I became a fiscal Conservative – small government is really the only way.
Then, I realized that big government also has tremendous negative political implications on our freedom – big government tends to be abusive as our founding fathers came to realize, with the inevitable loss of your freedoms.
Think of it this way, Obamacare forces people to buy health insurance even if they don’t want to. Whether or not you need health insurance isn’t the point – the point is you really don’t have a choice. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. So I became a full Conservative.
Freedom took me to Christianity, as it really is its basis – free will. You’re never forced to become a Christian – it’s your choice.
Free markets and political freedom is in absolute synchrony with Christianity.
Christianity is the ONLY religion that’s in synch with freedom
Try burning the Cuban flag in Cuba or the ISIS flag in Syria…you get executed.
Later on, I studied Creation and compared it to Evolution, which as you know is just a theory and not science. The name itself is indicative we cannot really call it science: ‘The THEORY of Evolution’. Even Charles Darwin, its author, didn’t think of it as science.
Evolution doesn’t make sense (you can read more about it here), because the idea of an ape turning into a human being is simply ridiculous.
Then I thought – wait a minute…where does music come from? Where does shame or love or any other emotion come from? Our ancestors the apes?
I don't think so...
At this point I was even more curious and I started reading the Bible and listening to really good pastors.
But I still needed reassurance…which I’m now sharing with you.
Let me tell you why you should believe.
The 11 Apostles should convince you just like they convinced me - Simon Peter, James the Elder, John, Philip, Nathanael, James the Younger, Andrew, Matthew, Thomas, Jude and Simon.
These apostles all had different backgrounds: you find fishermen, a businessman, a political activist, a doubter, a cynic, a numbers guy (what we would call a Finance guy these days), a philosopher and even a tax collector among the apostles. You won’t find a more diverse group than these apostles.
But how did they manage to convince me?
Because they were ALL executed for their FAITH.
My friend, nobody would willingly DIE for a LIE.
People live for a lie, but they wouldn’t willingly die for a lie.
These folks suffered the most horrendous persecution and their deaths were unbelievably CRUEL. They died by hanging, they were crucified, they were sawn in pieces and Peter was crucified upside down! Do you think anyone would face such horrible deaths for a LIE?
They didn’t die for a lie – the SAW what they saw and they were willing to die for it.
They WITNESSED everything they preached about.
You see, there are THREE things that the Apostles WITNESSED that should convince you just as they convinced me:
My friend, if, like the apostles, you’re living in a territory occupied by Romans, who will chase you down and crucify you for what you PREACH, wouldn’t you rather save your life and stop preaching if you knew what you’re saying is a LIE? Why would you want to be crucified for a lie? What lie would you be willing to die for?
They SAW, they SAW, they SAW…all of these things…
Think of it this way: Muslim Jihadists kill and die because Muhammad has TOLD them so in the Koran. The apostles died for telling other people what they SAW.
Muhammad didn’t die for your sins – Jesus did. Buddha didn’t die for your sins – Jesus did. Obama wouldn't die for your sins - Jesus did.
And we have 11 witnesses who DIED telling the truth. The Left doesn’t want you to know any of this because they want to replace GOD with GOVERNMENT just to control you.
Jesus was and is the SAVING Son of God. The Apostles were only human. You wouldn’t knowingly die for a lie. Neither did they. They died for the TRUTH.

With the November 8th U.S. Presidential election results, there’s renewed hope that the incoming administration of Donald Trump will take down ISIS once and for all. Our hope is that President Trump will launch an effective attack that will annihilate ISIS for good.
However, things are not that simple – even when ISIS is defeated.
You see, the problem isn’t just ISIS. ISIS is, if anything, a symptom of something much bigger – and much worse.
In his now well-known 2014 Rosh Hashanah sermon, Atlanta Rabbi Shalom Lewis said:
‘There are one billion Muslims in the world and authorities agree that 5% are committed Islamists who embrace terror and wish to see, by any means possible, the Muslim flag over every capital, on every continent. I was relieved when I heard only 5%. Thank God it’s only 5%. Now I could sleep soundly. But wait…5% of a billion is 50 million Koran-waving, Allah Akbar-howling Muslim murderers out there planning to slit our throats, blow us up or forcibly convert us.’
Fifty million radical Muslims ready to kill you is a big problem, but the problem doesn't end there. The remaining Muslims also want a Muslim world - gradually dominating every corner of the earth. The problem is, as you can see, much bigger than just ISIS. And it can only be solved with one possible solution.
But before we go into solutions space, let’s remember why these radical Muslims hate us so much.
Their hate isn’t something new – and quite frankly, its origins have nothing to do with America, as the Left would have you believe.
Their hate started with Abraham and his two sons – Ishmael and Isaac in Genesis 16,21. According to the Bible God had promised Abraham to make him the father of great nations (Genesis 12:1-3). Abraham had no children at the time and since it was taking too long for him and his wife Sarah to conceive, Abraham, influenced by his wife, decided to take the problem into his own hands – something that is usually not advisable to do. Abraham and Sarah decided that their servant, Hagar, would bear Abraham’s son – Ishmael.
But Ishmael wasn’t the son God had promised. So what happened? This is very important, so please pay attention: An angel told Hagar that Ishmael ‘shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him’ (Genesis 16:12). Keep this in mind.
When Ishmael was 14, Sarah finally gave birth to the son God had promised – Isaac.
Things didn’t go all that well in the family and one day Ishmael was making fun of Isaac - Isaac was still a boy but Ishmael was a teenager. In a rage, Sarah kicked their servant and her son Ishmael out of the house. Ishmael, being the wild man he was growing up to be, never forgave Sarah or Isaac for this.
As time went by Ishmael and Isaac had children of their own. Almost all Arabs, including the founder of Islam Muhammad, look to Ishmael as their father and all Jewish people look to Jacob (or Israel, Isaac’s son) as their father.
You see, it all started almost 4000 years ago with the conflict between Isaac and Ishmael. From a racial perspective, this conflict is ongoing today.
But race isn’t the only problem – a new religious conflict started with the establishment of Islam in the AD 600s.
ISIS is against everybody whose religion differs from Islam and their hatred can be traced back to the founding of Islam.
How do we expect to finish ISIS off if this racial and religious conflict has been going on for thousands and thousands of years? You take out 50 million of Muslim terrorists, then what?
Defeating ISIS isn’t enough – we have to do something else.
ISIS’s mission is to take Muslims back to the Koran to restore the ‘purity’ of their religion as taught by Muhammad. These extremists have gone back in time to the seventh century. These are fanatics…fifty million of them. Most modern Muslims de-emphasize the teachings mandating jihad against infidels, the subjugation of women and the hatred of Jews and Christians - though they too want an Islamic world. But radical Muslims are ready to kill for Allah, as we all know.
Islam is far from being a religion of peace. Former Muslim Nabeel Qureshi, now a Christian scholar, has said this about Islam’s history of warfare:
‘Within two centuries of the advent of Islam, Muslim conquests expanded Islamic territory from the shores of the Atlantic well into the valleys of India. At the end of that era, the most influential hadith collectors gathered whole books documenting Muhammad’s conduct and commands during times of warfare. Shortly after them, the great Islamic jurists systematically codified “sharia”, Islamic law, devoting whole branches of jurisprudence to the proper practice of warfare.
For these reasons, no one can claim that “Islam is a religion of peace” in the sense that the religion has been historically devoid of violence, neither in its origins nor in the history of the global Muslim community. Apart from the first thirteen years of Islamic history, when there were not enough Muslims to fight, Islam has always had an elaborate practice or doctrine of war’.
Defeating ISIS isn’t enough. Violence and warfare is in Islam’s DNA. So what can we do?
First, we must remember who is in control – God. Ultimately we know God wins the battle between good and evil, so we must rest assured that those of us, Christians, will be just fine no matter what happens.
And second, we must witness – we must preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Reach out to your friends and expanded network. Jesus Christ had to come because there just was too much sin on this earth. There still is, but all of us who have accepted Him as our Lord and Savior are now saved from sin and death. To the extent that Christians get closer to Jesus and behave more like Jesus, we’ll be showing those who follow false religions what it is like to be a Christian. This is not on President Trump alone – this is a mandate to all of us. Muslim honor Jesus as a great prophet – we have a golden opportunity to witness that Jesus is, in fact, our Savior.
