No-Go Zones

Shortly after the Muslim terrorist attack that killed 17 people in Paris, France there were a flurry of TV programs and articles about No-Go Zones (also called Sensitive Urban Zones, mini-caliphates or little caliphates).

These are Muslim towns, communities and villages that non-Muslim city officials, police, firemen and others often avoid in France, England and other parts of the EU. But these No-Go Zones quickly became a subject that some politicians and media personalities didn’t want people to discuss.

Saying “No-Go Zones” is about like saying “Islamic terrorists” or “Muslim terrorists.”  Some won’t admit that there is such a thing. Some prefer to be politically correct, cater to the Muslims and hope that the public will ignore the fact that these places actually exist. It is like the Fort Hood incident that was called “work place violence” instead of a Muslim terrorist attack.

Others know that “No-Go Zones” exist because the subject can be Googled, anti-Islamic movements have sprung up as a result of their existence, governments have published lists and maps of these areas, there have been articles and police reports about these areas for years, etc.

But some people don’t want No-Go Zones tied to Muslims or the Islamic religion in any way. They don’t object to calling these areas poverty zones; areas of low education, areas of high unemployment, areas of despair and things like that, but they strongly object to using the words “Muslim” or “Islamic” in connection with these dangerous places.

Part of the problem is Globalists and their satanic desire for a one-world government and a one-world religion. They categorize people as “citizens of the world” instead of citizens of a nation or citizens of a religion. They want to pull people out of their religion and into a politically correct religion. They want to integrate the cultures and religions of the world; and they are trying to do this by opening borders and encouraging immigration.

Another part of the problem is that many Muslims are taught to place their religion above their citizenship. Being a Muslim is more important to them than being in a nation, a world religion or a world government (unless it is an Islamic world religion or world government). So when Muslims cross those open borders to re-locate they don’t assimilate.

They flock to Muslim neighborhoods where they are taught to cling to the habits, values and religion they grew up in. They are taught to convert the nation they are in and not to let that nation convert them. They are taught that every true Muslim has a responsibility to convert the people in their area in one of   two ways: through violence or through population growth, persuasion  and domination.

There are many more parts to the problem but I will just mention one more and move on. Islam is not a religion of peace in the sense that the world thinks of peace. Islam teaches that Muslims are at war with non-Muslims. It teaches that there won’t be peace on earth until the whole world is converted to Islam.

So when Muslims say they are a religion of peace they mean they are a religion that wants to bring peace to the earth by converting everyone on earth to Islam. Violence (threatening or killing non-Muslims) is an acceptable method for establishing peace (an Islamic one-world religion and government).

I have not read the Koran, but I have read an untold number of articles about the Koran and what it teaches. The Koran was written over a period of years, and it is my understanding that some of the earliest passages clearly teach peace. And some of the later passages clearly teach violence.

So there are contradictions in the Koran and I have read that when there is a contradiction in the Koran it instructs those who read it to go by the last passage on the issue. Since the later passages teach violence against non-Muslims, this means the violent passages supersede the peaceful passages.

I have already said that Muslims can use violence or they can use population growth, persuasion and domination to convert the world. Most Muslims choose to use population growth, persuasion and domination, but some choose violence. Some establish terrorist cells. Some recruit people to join terrorist cells.

Some attend mosques with radical clerics that preach jihad. Some want to keep non-Muslims away from where these activities are going on so they deliberately turn their neighborhoods into No-Go Zones. The violent and the non-violent are intermingled and that makes for a very dangerous situation.

The U.S. president is pro-Muslim at best and a committed Muslim at worst. He has Muslim advisors, Muslims in Homeland Security, a Muslim in charge of the CIA, allowed a Muslim in the country that is establishing a Muslim political party and who knows what else?

According to a recent report, the FBI knows of at least 22 Muslim areas (communes or compounds) in the U.S. that are recruiting trainees. The FBI knows that these trainees are being taught guerilla tactics, Islamic doctrine, anti-Americanism, how to use weapons and more.

In times past, some of these groups have been infiltrated and investigated. The FBI has issued reports that say they are dangerous. But, as far as I know, the infiltration and investigation has stopped because the U.S. government refuses to call these people terrorists.

All of the Muslims in these compounds may not be terrorists, but some of them are. So, in my mind, there is no difference between the 22 No-Go Muslim compounds in the U.S. and the No-Go Zones in France and other countries.

Editors Note:  We at Rafter Cross Ministries and EvenSoCome are equally concerned about the growth of Islam and the proliferation of radical Islamic terrorist organizations. We are concerned about the involvement of some of these groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR in the present administration of the US government.

However, first and foremost we recognize that those of the Muslim faith are deceived by Satan and are in desperate need to have someone share with them the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They need to hear how the one true God desires a relationship with them based on love rather than fear and punishment.

With this in mind, we call on all true disciples of Christ to be certain that we (like Christ) love the sinner even while we deplore his sin. Pray for those who are caught up in and dominated by Islam, Pray that they find the redemption provided by Jesus Christ at the Cross.

Is God Turning the Bear?

For about 70 years, between 1920 and 1970, the USSR was ever expanding. Soviet leaders gobbled up Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Poland, part of Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldavia, East Germany, Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Yugoslavia and much more.

In the early 90s, some nations rebelled and demanded their independence. Soviet leaders tried to hold the union together, but the rebellion spread, the Soviets lost their power and the USSR fell apart.

Some political leaders thought the collapse of the Soviet Union meant that the world had entered a new era of peace, but by the end of the decade a former KGB agent named Vladimir Putin had risen to power and become the acting president of Russia.

He went on to become president, then prime minister and then president again. He changed laws, consolidated his power, cracked down on his opposition, rebuilt the military, developed close ties with Iran and quietly nurtured the dream of restoring the old Soviet Union. Some even said he also wanted to take over all of Europe.

Mr. Putin liked to present himself as a strongman and his desire to restore the old USSR troubled some of the former Soviet Union nations. His intervention in Georgia, Kyrgystan, Ukraine, his annexation of Crimea and the fact that he threatened to use Russian power outside Russia’s borders made them nervous.

Several of those former USSR nations joined, or tried to join NATO, primarily for protection. They had broken away from the old power-hungry bear and they didn’t want to be subjugated and forced back in.

About eight months ago when Mr. Putin took over Crimea, western leaders finally decided that he had gone too far and he needed to be turned around. They demanded that he stop supporting the opposition forces in Crimea and threatened to impose sanctions on Russia if he didn’t turn around and leave. Their initial sanctions were virtually meaningless and Mr. Putin scoffed at them, but western leaders continued to ramp up the sanctions and the bear began to hurt.

Almost overnight, there was a global glut of oil triggered by an economic downturn in Asia and Europe, fracking for oil in the U.S. and stepped up production of oil in Saudi Arabia. The price of oil quickly dropped from more than $100 per barrel to less than $60 per barrel. The Russian Ruble collapsed, the Russian economy went into a tailspin, and Russia was suddenly facing the prospects of a recession or possibly a depression.

The looming economic disaster and the likelihood that the Russian people might eventually rebel got Mr. Putin’s attention. He now appears to be looking for a way to save face, turn around and leave Crimea. But he has promised the Russian people that he will retaliate against those who have imposed sanctions on Russia and he has promised that he will solve Russia’s economic problems in the next two years.

The Russian bear’s actions made me think of the battle of Gog and Magog. Gog will try to expand his kingdom in the latter days and latter years. But God said, “I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth” (Ezek. 38:4).

Is Mr. Putin Gog? Is God turning Gog around? How will Gog retaliate? I don’t think anyone knows. We can only say that Russia must turn away from one target before God pulls her toward a second target (Israel).

God also said, “It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought” (Ezek. 38:10).

What is this evil thought? The Bible doesn’t say but it appears to be:

“To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land” (Ezek. 38:12).

And some would add, “To satisfy the ancient Islamic hatred for Israel.”

I don’t know what Mr. Putin was thinking when he told the Russian people he will solve Russia’s economic problems in the next two years, but China and India have offered to help Russia so it will take a little time for Russia’s recession to reach full bloom.

Israel has acquired phenomenal wealth with minerals from the Dead Sea, oil and natural gas, agricultural success, cattle and goods; and Mr. Putin has not been reluctant to steal from other countries. We don’t know when it will happen, but many would not be surprised to see the battle of Gog and Magog in the next two years.

A wounded bear is dangerous and this wounded bear may not be ready to go away. He may turn around and seek a different prey. But regardless of anything I have written, what he has been trying to do to Israel will be done to him. He will become the prey and God will be known in the eyes of many nations (Obad. 1:15; Ezek. 38:23; 39:17-20).

Confusion, and Barack Hussein Obama

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.

I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.

These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.” 1 John 2:15-29

What are the foundational, fundamental beliefs which drive the decisions and ambitions of Barack Hussein Obama? I must admit that, for most of the 6+ years of his presidency I have considered him to be a Muslim. However, I have recently begun to reassess this thought. While he has personally claimed to be a Christian, his words, actions, and in fact the very evidence of his very life are contradictory to that claim. His one-time membership in the church pastored by Jeremiah Wright and his personal relationship with that pastor are well documented, as is the black liberation theology he teaches. It has been, and still is, my assertion that Jeremiah Wright is a false prophet and false teacher whose theology espouses hatred, which is completely antithetical to the teachings of Jesus Christ. If Jeremiah Wright or Barack Obama either were at one time in their life drawn to the Truth of the Gospel and the True Church, I submit that; “They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.” (1 John 2:19)

It is therefore my contention that Barack Obama is not a Christian, and I am confident in saying so because his life has borne no evidence of any fruits of the Spirit. In fact, what evidence there is would point to him being anti-Christian. His stand for abortion, for homosexual marriage, and to force faith-based organizations to pay for contraceptives through Obamacare are examples, as is his Department of Justice and Department of Defense’s persecution of those who express their faith in Christ. The very fact that he ignored for months (while he was busy on the golf course) the plight of Christians in Iraq who are being persecuted by the ISIS, is evidence enough for most that he is anti-Christian. His negligence of the Christians in Iraq is documented in an article written by Kirsten Powers entitled; Obama’s inattention to Iraqi Christians, and published on August 13, 2014 in USA Today.

But, does this mean he is a Muslim? Of a certainty there is more evidence to make that claim than any other. We might begin with the very fact that he received a good portion of his early education in a Muslim madrassa (school) in Indonesia. Or we might point to the fact that all of his relatives in Kenya are Muslim. And in fact, his brother Malik Obama is the executive secretary of the Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO) and is reported to oversee the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments. Malik Obama is also known to associate with members of Hamas as well as the Muslim Brotherhood. The Obama brothers are said to be very close, Malik was the best man at Barack’s wedding to Michelle, and Malik has visited Barack in the White House on numerous occasions. Then there is this, Barack Obama has written that one of the most beautiful sounds he has ever heard is the Muslim call to prayers, and in an address to the United Nations General Assembly in September 2012 said; “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

In two recent articles it has been documented that no less than seven individuals who have ties with the Muslim Brotherhood serve or have served in appointed positions in the Obama administration. The first article titled; Sharia Advisors – Barack Obama’s Muslim Appointees In High-Security Positions, was written by Leon Puissegur and published April 29, 2014 on freedomoutpost.com and the second article titled; Barack Obama Has a Preference for Muslim Brotherhood Advisers, was written by Sara Noble and published May 4, 2014 on independentsentinel.com

Those named in the articles were;

• Arif Alikhan — Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for DHS
• Mohamed Elibiary — Homeland Security Adviser
• Rashad Hussain Marayati — Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference
• Salam al-Marayati — Adviser, Founder and Executive Director, Muslim Public Affairs Council
• Imam Mohamed Magid — Obama’s Sharia Czar — Islamic Society of North America
• Eboo Patel — Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships
• Kareem Shora, – a native of Damascus, Syria, Homeland Security Advisory Council

Also of note is Huma Abedin, who was the Assistant to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and who has extensive family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

In writing about President Obama’s obvious ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Graham J. Noble noted in a recent editorial; “One should consider that family connections to terrorist organizations would not only render any private American citizen ineligible to serve in the US Armed Forces, or be hired for any number of government jobs, but would also make them subject to surveillance and, quite possibly, investigation. The fact that such well-documented ties can be traced to no less a person than the president of the United States makes one wonder how Barack Hussein Obama was obviously able to completely evade any vetting process. Whilst, in a free society, there should be few barriers to running for public office, the position of Commander-in-Chief is far too sensitive and important to expose to someone with such dubious links as our current leader.”

But once again I ask, is this enough evidence to say that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim? Or, is he an Islamist? What is the difference you ask? An Islamist is one who adheres to an ideology of Islamism which uses the religion of Islam to promote totalitarianism with respect to politics, economics, militarism, and technology. As such Islamism is no different from socialism, Marxist-Leninist communism, or fascism in the way it desires to control the state and society. Islamism is anti-capitalist and as such most decidedly anti-American. Islam as a religion is personal, therefore a Muslim’s response to Islamic law is his choice. The Islamist on the other hand desires to force his form of totalitarian ideology and religion on everyone.

Since we have mentioned communism, and because Barack Obama has also been accused of being a socialist, perhaps we should explore briefly this subject as well. Unless you have been living under a rock, or are simply willfully ignorant, you are aware of Barack Obama’s relationship with Bill Ayres and Bernadine Dohrn, formerly of the Weather Underground, classic Marxist-Leninist communists, who launched his political career in their living room. You should also be aware of Barack Obama’s adherence to the organizational teachings of Saul Alinsky, also a communist, and perhaps even of his relationship with the communist Frank Marshall Davis who mentored the young Barack Obama in Hawaii in the 1970s.

Frank Marshall Davis worked with Robert Taylor in the American Peace Mobilization group which was a communist front organization, and through Taylor, Davis met a Chicago writer named Vernon Jarrett. Davis and Vernon Jarrett were part of the publicity team for the Packinghouse Workers Union which was communist controlled. Now then, here is an interesting little tidbit of information, President Barack Hussein Obama’s most trusted advisor in the White House is Valerie Jarrett. Valerie Jarrett holds the title of Senior Advisor to the president. Her grandfather was Robert Taylor and her father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, and she was introduced to Barack Obama by Bill Ayres. So then, legitimately, the question might be asked, is Barack Hussein Obama a socialistic communist?

Islamist, communist notwithstanding, there is one “IST” that describes Barack Obama that I am willing to be dogmatic about; he is a Narcissist. The concise Encyclopedia defines narcissism as a mental disorder characterized by extreme self-absorption, an exaggerated sense of self-importance, and a need for attention and admiration from others. Narcissists are also described as being haughty, aloof, and unusually cool and composed unless their confidence is shaken and they feel threatened, which manifests itself in hypersensitivity to insults whether real or imagined. Narcissists have difficulty with empathy and sustaining satisfying relationships, and use other people without considering their feelings or counting the cost for having done so. Narcissists have unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment because they are convinced they are special and are thus entitled. Any failure to comply with their desires is considered an attack on their superiority. Typically, they are braggarts who exaggerate their achievements and claim an above average intelligence, and expertise in many areas. Narcissists have an inability to view the world from other people’s perspectives, detest those who do not admire them, have no sense of guilt or remorse, and yet are vulnerable to shame.

I believe this very aptly describes Barack Obama. From the very beginning of his presidency he has abused the American people with the excesses of his lifestyle as president. From the unmatched opulence of his vacations and those of his family, to the incessant pandering of and to his liberal Hollywood cronies, to his limitless addiction to the game of golf, he has shown no regard for the financial burden he has placed on the American taxpayer or the dereliction of his duty as president during times of international crisis. Because of his own personal ideology he has alienated our allies and emboldened our enemies. He has destroyed our healthcare system, crippled our economy, and marginalized our military. His administration has displayed abject corruption in its Department of Justice, IRS, Department of Homeland Security, and Bureau of land management, Bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms, and Department of State. Barack Obama does not like the United States of America, but Barack Obama likes his position, Barack Obama likes his pleasures, and Barack Obama likes his power. Barack Obama loves worldly things!

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.” (1 John 2:15-16)

I believe Barack Obama is an Islamist, and a socialist/communist, and I believe because of their incompatibility, and because ultimately he is a narcissist; that he is presently one of the most confused individuals who has ever walked the earth. I believe he came into the presidency with the socialistic goal of the destruction of the United States power and influence in the world. I believe his Islamist ideology is in opposition to the socialist/communist goals of his handlers who placed him in the presidency, yet he has a desire to see it succeed. I believe his narcissistic and hedonistic desires and affectations have caused him to turn away from any semblance of responsibility, without remorse. I do not believe that he is incompetent, I do not believe that he does not care, I do believe that absolutely everything he has done or not done has been planned.

“Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.” (1 John 2:18)

Barack Hussein Obama is not a Christian. He is an anti-Christian, not the Antichrist but an antichrist, and we are living in the last hour. As I have often stated before, nowhere in End Times prophetic Scripture is the United States of America found. Therefore, though I believe Barack Obama serves “the prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2) and the “rulers of the darkness of this age” (Ephesians 6:12), ultimately, whether he is aware of it or not, even in his sinfulness he is accomplishing the will of God.

“And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.” (1 John 2:28)
