To those who proclaim to be Christians and yet are shaking their pom-poms excitedly and fervently praying for a decades long war against the Muslim world, I ask this:
Didn't your saviour, Jesus Christ, teach a gospel of love and wasn't he known as the 'Prince of Peace?'
If so, by hoping and praying for that war, aren't you rejecting Jesus Christ and maybe, just maybe you should ask who or what it is you're praying to?
And please explain how "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy,' from JC's "Sermon on the Mount," a beautiful spiritual guide for loving and taking care of others, morphed into something this twisted and hateful?
“Islam on Capitol Hill” Event Sparks Christian Right “Spiritual Warfare” RhetoricMuslims worship Jesus Christ as a prophet, not the Son of God. Jesus WAS recognized as only a prophet by the early church, until the first Council of Nicaea in 325 where a collection of church patriarchs elevated JC to 'Son of God' status..... and destroyed around 40 gospels, but I digress.
The “Window International Network” – run from Colorado by a certain Beverley Pegues - has got particularly carried away, exhorting us to Ask the LORD to dispatch His warring angels to oversee, contain, and defeat any spirits of destruction, terror or violence that seek to use this meeting of Muslims as an opportunity to wreak havoc. Pray that every demonic attack against the United States is revealed. Pray the Bible. Mark 4:22. Pray for every terrorist plot to be revealed, and those planning evil to be caught and quickly brought to justice.
Pray for the false gods of Allah and Muhammad, along with the demonic spirits of manipulation, religion, control, hatred, rejection, abandonment, and witchcraft to be bound and cast down in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Loose Godly unity, peace, and love.
Pray for the Athan (Islamic call to prayer) and all other Islamic prayers to be rendered ineffective and powerless, and for God’s impenetrable hedge of protection to be placed around leaders and governmental agencies of the United States of America. Pray that these leaders will not be affected in any way or influenced by witchcraft prayers and the schemes of evil principalities and powers. Pray the LORD’s Will and Purpose for the US will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Oklahoma pastor Reza Safa, a former Muslim who now broadcasts the gospel into the Middle East through his Nejat TV, said 50,000 Muslims bowing before Allah is "a slap in the face of Christianity."
“You can’t say America is a Christian nation and have Muslims, who deny Jesus is the Son of God, on the lawn of the White House,” he said this week from Jerusalem.
Maybe we should ask Congress to weigh in on this matter, but they're off for the JEWISH holiday of Yom Kippur.
So the next time some wild-eyed bible thumper starts singing the praises of Judaism and kissing up to Israel, tell them to ask their Jewish friends what one of the Jew's holy books, the TALMUD, says about Christ and his mother.
