Intercessors! Thanks for praying.
Sunday night, December 6th I joined several hundred others at Christ Community Church in Montreat, NC to celebrate the children’s Christmas program. My 5-year-old granddaughter was an angel. It was wonderful! The program gave glory to Jesus Christ. Then a sobering thought hit me, “what a perfect soft target!” I immediately got up and walked around the sanctuary praying for protection for those gathered at this particular Christian event. I also was led to pray for those celebrating Hanukkah which started that night and will end on December 14th.
Satan has declared war on both Jews and Christians through the stronghold of Radical Islam. So in this season of Hanukkah and Christmas we are called to prayer that Satan’s plans will be thwarted.
For the want of a shoe the horse was lost,
For the want of a horse the rider was lost,
For the want of a rider the battle was lost,
For the want of a battle the kingdom was lost,
And all for the want of a horseshoe-nail.”
Ask the Lord to reveal to you any other metaphorical horseshoe-nails that Satan needs to implement further terrorist attacks like what we just witnessed.
It is urgent that these chains of events that lead to such attacks be broken. If you get any guidance about the “horseshoe-nails” in Satan’s plans please let us all know.
What are Satan’s Plans in Radical Islam and the Religion of Islam – the Replacement of God the Father’s way of Salvation in Jesus Christ with the way of death
While law enforcement is looking for the motives behind these Islamic terrorist attacks whether in France, England, Africa or America, we need to ask, “What are Satan’s motives and plans in both the religion of Islam and in the demonic strongholds built on the basis of this religion?” This will get us to the heart the issue. Overall Satan’s purpose is the replacement of God’s way of salvation that has been established in Jesus Christ. Why do Islamic terrorists attack Jews and Christians? Why is it that prayers reflecting the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ideas were reported:
“The slogans of the Iranian nation on Al-Quds Day show what its position is. The slogans ‘Death to Israel’ and ‘Death to America’ have resounded throughout the country, and are not limited to Tehran and the other large cities. The entire country is under the umbrella of this great movement [of ‘Death to Israel’ and ‘Death to America’].”—Middle East Media Research Institute, July 18, 2015.
It is because Satan’s big plan is replacement of both Jews and Christians who embody God’s way of salvation through faith alone in Jesus Christ the Messiah. See my video giving a quick summary of Islam’s role in Satan’s plans for replacement of God’s way of salvation here.
The following comes from the Prayer Strategy book that I am working on and hope to have published in early 2016.
Satan’s ultimate goal through the demonic strongholds of radical/militant Islam is the complete replacement of Yahweh’s way of redemption as revealed in the Old and New Testaments with the totalitarian spiritual, political, and cultural system of militant Islam.
Satan’s plans through Islam from the beginning when he started appearing as an angel of light to Mohammad have always been through the “sword” ? that is, death, subjugation, and demonic deception ? to bring about the replacement of:
- Abraham, Moses, Jesus Christ and the NT Apostles with the false prophet Mohammed
- The Old and New Testament with the deception of the Koran and the Hadith
- The Kingdom of Jesus Christ with the totalitarian spiritual, cultural, and political bondage of Sharia law
- Worship of God the Father in spirit and in truth with the submission (Islam) to Allah of the Koran who is not the God revealed in the Old and New Testaments
- The true God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit as revealed in the Old and New Testaments ? is replaced by “Allah,” actually Satan himself disguised as the moon god worshiped at Mecca.
- The good news that by faith in Jesus Christ we may be born again and enter into everlasting life is replaced by works righteousness that leads to eternal death.
- The assurance of entry into everlasting life through the love and grace of Jesus Christ who died for our sins is replaced by the deception that the only assured entry into paradise is by being killed while taking part in Islamic Jihad of killing Jews, Christians and infidels who do not submit to the bondage of Islam.
Along with this goal of replacement of God’s way of salvation through Jesus Christ has been the method of eradicating the historical and human witnesses to God’s way of salvation. For example, wherever Islam becomes dominate, synagogues and churches are turned into mosques, outward expressions of Christian or Jewish faith are forbidden, Jewish and Christian graves are desecrated, and monuments to the non-Islamic past are destroyed.
We do not expect the world to understand Satan’s scheme to replace God’s means of salvation through His covenants starting with the Jewish people and then extending to all people through Jesus Christ. However, Jews and Christians must understand that replacing us both through the spiritual, cultural and political system of Islam is Satan’s primary purpose.
When we review Satan’s other schemes through the strongholds of Radical Islam – it gets even more terrible. For Satan’s full plan calls for genocide – a new holocaust this time, with Jews and Christians and not millions murdered but billions. This is so horrible that it is unthinkable. We shall return to these terrible plans as we continue to discern what Satan is doing.
Thank you!!! I urgently need your prayers as I work through this terrible topic and move toward publication of the book. We must keep alert and persevere in extended engagement with the enemy. Let us stay in good touch with one another. And let us pray for one another.
If you are not called to engage in this battle, consider it your niche in this effort to pray for those of us who are called to engage.
