Scripture: 1 John 2:18-23
We are told that whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either. He who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. This, of course, becomes the dividing line between Christianity and all other major religions. This Scripture makes it obvious that if you do not have the Son, you do not have the Father. The Spirit of antichrist increasingly inhabits politicians. It is most evident in Islam! The same American legislators that legislate against Christ often promote Islam. Where you find Islam you find terrorism and genocide in the making. In 1915, as nations began to move toward a worldwide war, the Islamic government of Turkey used the war as cover to kill their Christian Armenian population. In the beginning of this period there were 2 million Armenian Christians in Turkey, and today there are fewer than 60,000. US Senate Resolution 359 in 1920 heard testimony of the mutilation, violation, torture and death of the Armenians. Islam’s rules of war allow murder, rape and destruction in astonishing ways. One witness saw 16 Christian girls crucified after they were raped. Nothing covered them except their hair. Today’s history books portray this as a dispute when, in fact, it was the same kind of genocide that is going on today in nations around the world. As soon as Iraq was liberated, a war started on the Christian population. Now that war has come to Syria, with our own government supporting the jihadist and terrorists. Christians are being murdered in Syria and genocide continues. As Turkey moves back to reclaiming its Islamic heritage, Christians are again being stabbed and murdered, some of them with crucifixes carved into their naked bodies. In northern Nigeria Muslims in the Boko Haram organization are in the process of cleansing Northern Nigeria of all Christians. It is the same treatment that Christians received in Armenia. Church congregations with as little as 20 people are targeted for killing. Wherever Islam comes into the majority, there is the murder of Christians. The religion that champions antichrist is being promoted by the political party in power in America under a school curriculum called CSCOPE. God has an answer that has to be embraced by the church. If we do not take God’s approach, we may well lose our nation. Thank God there is an answer in the koo-ree-os Christ.
