The world is struggling with who God is. Is He a myth, a god of man’s making? Or is He the god of Islam, or Hinduism, or Buddhism? Or is He a God of many religions? Only in the Bible is the truth laid down for all to read.
“Tell and bring forth your case; Yes, let them take counsel together. Who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I, the LORD? And there is no other God besides Me, A just God and a Savior; There is none besides Me. Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself; The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, And shall not return, That to Me every knee shall bow, Every tongue shall take an oath.He shall say, ‘Surely in the LORD I have righteousness and strength. To Him men shall come, And all shall be ashamed Who are incensed against Him. In the LORD all the descendants of Israel Shall be justified, and shall glory.’ ” – Isa 45:21-25
He is God alone and there are no other Gods. He alone is our Savior. And He has revealed Himself to Israel and their descendants alone and they were inspired to write the revelation down in the Bible. All the nations of the earth drifted away from this truth and so God sent the nation of Israel into captivity until the time of their recovery and He brought forth another nation, the United States, and blessed it with His truth.
Our previous President, Obama, declared that we were no longer a Christian nation but that very declaration pre-proposes that we were once a Christian nation. And indeed we were. But there is another evidence that is perfectly constitutional and has been since the founding of the Republic. That is for the individual states to establish a religious test for public office. The federal government, of course, cannot do such a thing, but states are free to do it if they wish. There were religious tests for public office in almost every state in the Union at the time of the ratification of the Constitution. Here are just a few examples:
Massachusetts, 1780 – “I _______, do declare that I believe the Christian religion…”
Maryland, 1776 – “…a declaration of a belief in the Christian religion.”
Delaware, 1776 – “I _______, do profess faith in God the Father, and in Jesus Christ His only Son, and in the Holy Ghost, One God, blessed for evermore; and I do acknowledge the holy scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament to be given by Divine Inspiration.”
U.S. Senate – “Senate. Provided, nevertheless, That no person shall be capable of being elected a senator who is not of the Protestant religion…
House of Representatives – “Every member of the house of representatives… shall be of the Protestant religion… “
New Hampshire, 1784 – “President. [H]e shall be of the Protestant religion.”
Georgia, 1777 – “Representatives… shall be of the Protestant religion…”
North Carolina, 1776 – “That no person, who shall deny the being of God or the truth of the Protestant religion, or the divine authority of the Old or New Testaments, or who shall hold religious principles incompatible with the freedom and safety of the State, shall be capable of holding any office or place of trust or profit in the civil department within this State.”
Pennsylvania, 1776 – “shall each [representative] before they proceed to business take… the following oath or affirmation: ‘I do believe in one God, the creator and governor of the universe, the rewarder of the good and punisher of the wicked. And I do acknowledge the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by Divine inspiration.’”
New Jersey, 1776 – “…all persons, professing a belief in the faith of any Protestant sect, who shall demean themselves peaceably under the government, as hereby established, shall be capable of being elected into any office of profit or trust…”
These few declarations prove that we were founded as a Christian nation believing in the precepts of the Holy Bible. So what happened to us? Perhaps we were like the Church of Ephesus in the Book of Revelation. They did everything alright at the first: “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary.” (Rev. 2:2,3). But, eventually, as they prospered they grew cold in their faith.
“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.” – Rev. 2:4
They became deadened to the truth and had pleasure in unrighteousness (2 Thes. 2:12). And so God sent them strong delusion so they would believe lies. We see this clearly as Democrats and many others fall to the sin of abortion and LGBT lifestyle, even praising it. And our eyes have been blinded to the danger of Islam as we even elect them to the highest offices in the land. The Hill’s calculations indicate that as many as 90 followers of Allah pursued statewide or nationwide positions in 2018, the most since 9/11. This is more than seven times the number of Muslim candidates just two years ago. There are still nine Muslim congressional candidates up for election, according to Jetpac, a nonprofit group that helps train Muslim-American candidates. Eighteen others are also campaigning for seats in state legislatures, and 10 are running for statewide offices, according to Jetpac data reported by the AP.
The slogan of the Muslim Brotherhood? “Allah is our objective; the Qur’an is the Constitution; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; death for the sake of Allah is our wish.” Democrat Abdul El-Sayed, who is running to become the first Muslim governor in Michigan. El-Sayed has well-established connections with the Muslim Brotherhood, having served as the vice-president of the Muslim Student Association while at the University of Michigan.
There is not a single one of the rights identified in the First Amendment that the Qu’ran or Sharia law honors. In Islam, there is no freedom of religion (Saudi Arabia does not have a single church building anywhere), freedom of speech or the press (criticizing Islam or Muhammad will land you in jail), no freedom of assembly (even home Bible studies are flatly illegal in Saudi Arabia), and no freedom to petition the government for the redress of grievances. Christians and Jews are officially second-class citizens under Sharia law and are only allowed to live if they pay a submission tax, called the jizya. Otherwise, it’s off with their heads. Women have virtually no rights under Sharia, and husbands are even directed to beat wives who won’t do what they are told.
Muslim’s are uniting nation wide to infiltrate and defeat Christian America. In an email message on Tuesday, the Muslim Caucus invited those interested to join Tlaib; Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Muslim Democrat from Minnesota; Keith Ellison, a Muslim former congressman from Minnesota; and others “to develop a clear roadmap for implementing national organizing structure and policy agenda that centers and organizes Muslim American (sic).” This group’s keynote speaker said –
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant,” and, “The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” -then chairman of the designated terror group Council on American-Islamic Relations Omar M. Ahmad
They are using tax payer funds to infiltrate American schools. Muslim radicals funded by the U.S. government are working with officials in Michigan, Minnesota, and other states to put an end to what they describe as “Christian privilege” in public schools. Instead, they want government education to “infuse the curriculum” with Islamic “intellectual traditions.” The goal of the Islamic effort is to indoctrinate students into being ashamed of their nation’s great Christian roots, while promoting Islam at taxpayer expense to children in government care. (Revealed by The Newman Report).
Seattle School Superintendent Judy Martinson even went so far as to take the recommendations of the Council on American-Islamic Relations — also known as CAIR — and enact them as district policy, forwarding an email to district officials with guidelines that effectively endorse Islam.
Meanwhile Muslims in America demand ‘more than equal rights’ even demanding Locals Don’t Walk Dogs In Public Because It Is A Violation Of Sharia And “DISRESPECTS” Them. They demand special foods in school lunch programs, prayer rooms, and special washing rooms for their religious acts.
Since President Obama, a closet Muslim, their numbers have increased and their demands as well, even claiming that the Islamic flag will one day fly over the White House. But, we need to return to our “first love” – Jesus Christ. We need to follow the Bible’s advice –
“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – 2 Chron. 7:14
