Fruit is one of the most beneficial foods for your body — as long as it’s fresh. Fresh fruit supplies most of the nutrients your body needs to sustain healthy life. Rotten fruit will make you sick and can even kill you. But their are warning signs to keep you from eating rotten fruit. It looks bad, it smells bad and if you do take a bite of it, it tastes horrible and you’ll spit it out immediately. Good fruit builds you up, rotten fruit can kill you.
Spiritual fruit carries the same attributes as real fruit except it’s in the spiritual realm. There is good spiritual fruit and rotten spiritual fruit, each produced by a different spirit. The difference is that you have to learn to operate your spiritual taste buds to tell the difference. You can’t always tell by smell, sight or the other three senses God has given us to perceive the physical world around us. You can tell easily by the spirit of God you received at the time of the new birth.
Jesus spoke about this to teach us that in this world, there are those who claim to be from God who are not. Let’s read what he said.
Matthew 15:15-20 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Therefore by their fruits you shall know them.
The subject Jesus was speaking about was false prophets. What’s a false prophet? It’s someone who claims to be God’s representative, who claims to have heard from the one true God and claims to have a divine message from him. A false prophet is the opposite of a true prophet. The difference is that the false prophet is lying and the true prophet is not.
Today I want to bring up the elephant in the room of western culture. I know it’s not politically correct to speak about this subject but by God I am what I am and it’s my duty to do whatever I can, with my Lord’s help, to declare the truth in love and to influence culture for Christ. If I offend anyone, I ask you to look within yourself for that is where the offense lies.
The subject I’m talking about is the biggest threat to western culture that ever existed. It’s infiltrating the western nations like a plague and is the largest, fastest growing, and most dangerous anti-Christ religion on the face of the planet. The goal of this religion, clearly and stated many times and in many ways in what they call their ‘holy’ book, is to take control of, by force if necessary, the complete political, social-economic and religious spheres of life over the entire earth.
I am of course speaking about the Muslim religion founded by the false prophet Mohamed.
The Muslim religion is the biggest threat to western culture and the entire world since the beginning of time. Why is it so dangerous? Because their ‘good news’ boils down to this: Become a Muslim or die. Confess their false confession of their false faith or suffer the consequence of death at their own hands.
Am I serious? Of course I am. Am I right? That’s what their ‘book’ says, many times and in many ways. If you don’t believe me, pick up a copy of the Koran yourself and read it.
But isn’t that just ‘radical Islam?” Surely mainstream Islam is a ‘peaceful’ religion and wants to help the world become a better place. Isn’t ‘militant’ Islam just a small minority out of the 3+ billion Muslims on the earth?
Remember what Jesus said. ”By their fruit you shall know them.” What is the fruit of Islam? Let me summarize what this anti-Christ religion is all about.
FACT: The Koran states that God cannot have a son because ‘he has no consort.’
FACT: Muslim doctrine emphatically states and insists that Jesus was not crucified, hence he did not rise from the dead but was ‘assumed’ into heaven after Judas sacrificed his life for Jesus on the cross.
FACT: Muslim doctrine teaches that Jesus will return, but he will immediately do these things:
1) He’ll reprove everyone who thinks he’s the son of God and tell them they are wrong.
2) He’ll remove all the crosses from all the churches across the globe.
3) He’ll kill all the pigs on the planet.
4) He’ll repeal the Jizrah tax placed upon those who refuse to become Muslim, meaning from that point on, those who refuse to convert will be killed by the sword or guillotine.
There’s another thing he will then do. Muslims believe that their savior, al Mahdi, the twelfth Imam, will surface after centuries of hiding, to unite the Muslim under himself, the Caliphate of the revived Ottoman empire. They believe Jesus, who was ‘assumed’ up into heaven instead of resurrected, will be asked to pray to God by the Mahdi, and that he will humbly stand behind the Mahdi and say he is one of his servants. This Jesus will then instruct everyone to worship the Mahdi.
Interestingly enough, Muslims also believe that at that time, another spiritual figure will appear on the planet to lead Muslims astray. They say this is person is Jewish and that the Mahdi will kill him after he converts many Muslims to the Jewish faith. They call this person al-Masih al-Dajjal (“Messiah-Liar”). They say he will deify Christ and pervert the words of the true Messiah. The location he first appears is variously given as the Jewish quarter of Isfahan, or in Khurasan, in al-Kufah, or between Shaam and Iraq.
The Muslim ‘anti-Christ’ is in fact the true messiah, Jesus, returning to put down all rule and power and authority and to establish his kingdom in Jerusalem. Can you see how the Muslim faith totally reverses the revelation given by God in the Bible?
Why is this false religion so dangerous? Because the father of it is the devil himself. He’s devised an entire religious system that denies, skews and perverts the doctrine of salvation in the Bible told since the beginning of time. The devil has brought over 3 billion people into his fold and has given them the order for ‘worldwide Jihad.’ Let’s discuss what ‘worldwide Jihad’ means.
When Muslims first enter a nation, their numbers are small. They work their way into society and reproduce at the rate of 8 to 1 over the people they are infiltrating. As their numbers increase, so do their demands. When they have a substantial-enough population in an area, they start demanding for Sharia law. Sharia law is a completely oppressive system that demands total submission from those it governs. Sharia law is totally incompatible with the constitution of the United States as well as the political systems of all western countries.
When the number of Muslims increase to the point where they have the majority, they completely take over. They forcefully overthrow the existing government of the nation they have infiltrated, and they demand that everyone become a Muslim. They have the option to tax those who refuse to become Muslims or to kill them. The tax is known as the Jizrah tax. Keep in mind that it’s optional – if they want to offer it to you — but if not, then they can legally kill you according to their ‘holy’ book.
What does this have to do western culture? Everything. Those of the Muslim religion want complete control of the entire planet — political control, social-economic control and to be the only belief system on the planet. Once they infiltrate a country, they change the culture of that country by adopting Sharia law and mandating their religions beliefs upon everyone.
Jesus warned that the time was coming when those who killed Christians would do so thinking they were doing service for God.
John 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time comes, that whosoever kills you will think that he does God service.
Brethren in the Lord, we have to be aware of what’s going on and we have to stand against the methods of the devil. How do we know this religion is false? Because their doctrine totally contradicts the revealed Word of God. But even those who aren’t fully equipped with Biblical knowledge can know by inspecting the fruit of this religion. By their fruit you shall know them.
They think they are of God but they are not. They believe Jesus will return, but that Jesus is also Muslim. How fitting are Jesus’ words in the context of ‘false prophets.”
Matthew 15:21-23 Not every one that says unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out demons? and in your name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
Be aware of this threat — the biggest threat to God’s true people since the beginning of time. It’s growing daily and they are committed. By birth alone they will have the majority of the population in every major country within the next 30 to 40 years. Calculate the numbers yourself by the current birthrate of Muslims to non-Muslims.
So how do we fight against this threat? What do we do? Let’s go to God’s Word to see the answer.
Ephesians 6: 10-17 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places.
Therefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girded about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
We’ve been given the armor of God and we must ‘put it on.’ We have to stand on what God says in his Word.
Don’t be fooled by what you hear from those in this false religion. They will say whatever is necessary to get you on their side. I know Muslims who I interact with several times a week. The ones I know are not militant. They are not a threat to me; at least not at this point. But they are promulgating a false religion that is a threat. They are adhering to a system of belief that demands the whole world to join it and worship their false god through their false prophet Muhammad.
When the Muslim Caliphate is restored, the call will go out to all Muslims for worldwide Jihad by force. Will we think that the ‘majority of peaceful Muslims’ will not heed the call? Think again. We are talking about spiritual realities here, not physical. While at this time they may say, “peace, peace…” the time is coming when their strict adherence to Muslim beliefs will allow spirits to come in to direct what they do. They won’t be peaceful then.
We have been warned by our Lord to watch out for false prophets by inspecting their fruit. Though they say, “Lord, Lord…” it is not the Lord they are worshiping.
There are several ministries working toward both converting Muslims to the true Christian faith while enlightening others about the lies of their doctrine. I suggest you look these out and do what you can to help. If you don’t do that, at least consider my words here and do what you can in your sphere of influence to stand against this threat.
In the end, we know who wins. Our Lord Jesus shall return from heaven with a multitude of his heavenly armies and shall, by force, put down this false religion and all who worship Allah. They call him the ‘Dijjal’ but I call him my Lord Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords unto whom all knees shall bow, including Mohammed. What a glorious day that will be. Let’s look forward to it and do all we can in the meantime to educate people and stand against all forms of false beliefs.
