How powerful is the delusion?

On December 15, 2012 by Admin

In a recent conversation, a commentator asked some reasonable questions about the difference, if any, between Allah’s Islam, the God of heaven, and his church.

Midway through editing this article, evil appeared in Newtown, Connecticut. Before it left that town, twenty children were left lifeless upon the floor of their classroom; six adults – guardians – were left on the floors with them…

Following is our best effort to explain some very basic truths about the love of God and the hate of the dragon in regard to God’s people. Though this article was focused on the face of Satan as we know him today, the false prophet’s Allah, the reader must recognize that the lion prowls among us – waiting to pounce and rip at the flesh of our lives.

Please, take the time to read through this article and let your eyes see what your ears heard over the last day.

“The only punishment of those who wage war against Allah and his Messenger and strive to make mischief in the land (those who refuse to worship the Qur’an) is that they should be murdered, or crucified, or their hands and feet cut off on opposite sides, or they should be imprisoned. This shall be a disgrace for them in this world, and in the Hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.” – Qur’an 5:33

This is the command of Muhammad’s Allah, quoted word-for-word. “Waging war” against Allah and his false prophet Muhammad means; denying their invented religion. The part of the verse which  states “…strive to make mischief in the land…” – means refusing to worship the Qur’an and follow its laws (sharia). The word “murder” is specifically written as “murder” and not the alternative word “killed.” This command directly contradicts the command of God that we NOT murder as is plainly stated in  Exodus 20:13: “You shall not murder.”

To the contrary, is there anyone who can produce a Bible verse in which God commands us to “murder” or  “crucify” someone for not believing in him?

This question was addressed by the recipient in the following manner: “Mr. Stetton, there are many examples of requiring the killing of people who either break the rules or don’t believe the same way: Exodus 22:18-20, Exodus 31:15,Leviticus 20:27, Leviticus 26:7, Deuteronomy 13:6-9, Deuteronomy 13:12-15, Deuteronomy 17:2-5.”

Not to belabor the point, but we’ll reference each of these verses and the truth of the recipients answer.

“Do not allow a sorceress to live. Anyone who has sexual relations with an animal must be put to death.Whoever sacrifices to any god other than the Lord must be destroyed. Do not take advantage of a widow or an orphan. If you do and they cry out to me, I will certainly hear your cry. My anger will be aroused, and I will kill you with the sword…” – Exodus 22:18-20, 22

“For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the sabbath day must be put to death.” – Exodus 31:15

“A man or a woman who is a medium or spiritist among you must be put to death. You are to stone them; their blood will be on their own heads.” – Leviticus 20:27

“If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, 7 gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), 8 do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. 9 You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people. 10 Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 11 Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and no one among you will do such an evil thing again.” – Deuteronomy 13:6-11

“If you hear it said about one of the towns the Lord your God is giving you to live in 13 that troublemakers have arisen among you and have led the people of their town astray, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods you have not known), 14 then you must inquire, probe and investigate it thoroughly. And if it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done among you, 15 you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. You must destroy it completely,[a] both its people and its livestock.” Deuteronomy 13:12-15

“If a man or woman living among you in one of the towns the Lord gives you is found doing evil in the eyes of the Lord your God in violation of his covenant, 3 and contrary to my command has worshiped other gods, bowing down to them or to the sun or the moon or the stars in the sky, 4 and this has been brought to your attention, then you must investigate it thoroughly. If it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, 5 take the man or woman who has done this evil deed to your city gate and stone that person to death.” – Deuteronomy 17:2-5

These are the examples of truth… As hard is it may be to read or recognize, these truths were the curse of the law of God laid upon the Jews. These laws are valid today… with one grand exception – the saving grace of the Christ Jesus.

But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.” – John 8:1-11

Is there any question that we have been taught by the Saving Grace of the Christ Jesus – to drop our stones of “righteous judgment” and recognize that none of us are spotless and worthy of a position as judge?

In question, was the statement made within verse 3:55 of the Qur’an, which states: “When Allah said: O Jesus, I will cause thee to die and exalt thee in My presence and clear thee of those who disbelieve and make those who follow thee above those who disbelieve to the day of Resurrection. Then to me is your return, so I shall decide between you concerning that wherein you differ.”

There are multiple anti-Christ statements made within this one phrase.

Firstly: Allah proclaims, “I will cause thee to die…”

The God of heaven NEVER causes anyone to die. God is life, he is not death. Death is evil – it’s sin. And God is not – he cannot be – sin. Yet, the devil, he who is described as the masquerading angel of light, is the cause of death. Is it any wonder then, that the “god” of Islam is self-proclaimed to be An-Nur, “The Light” and Al-Mumit, “The Causer of Death?” Can the opening of this verse be recognized as anything other than an un-repentant confession of his identity?

Secondly: The “god” of Muhammad proclaims, “I will cause thee to die and exalt thee in My presence…”

Just exactly what is the defining difference between Jesus and all other men if he was not killed by crucifixion? There were tens of thousands of people crucified by men upon a cross in the time of the  Romans. What would make some guy named Jesus so important had he not been crucified and resurrected to overcome death? What would he have accomplished to make him “exalted” in the presence of God? Would he not be just another dead guy? He wrote nothing in the Bible – his witnesses did. He wrote nothing in the Qur’an. It wasn’t invented until 600 years after his death and resurrection. So, why would the not-crucified, not-resurrected Jesus be so important to the god of Islam as to raise him to be exalted?

Thirdly: “…and clear thee of those who disbelieve…”

Clear thee of what? What would “god” need to clear Jesus of – knowing that he did not write any books, that he did not die on a cross, that he was not resurrected over death, and that he did not defeat the fallen angel? What would “god” clear him of… being a LIAR? If he did none of those things but claimed to have done so, he would be the worst demon ever to set foot upon the planet. Any man who claims to be God, and deceives tens of billions of people, but is not God is nothing less than demonic and of the very devil himself. There would be nothing of truth that would, could or should clear him of the lies he told.

Fourth: “…to the day of Resurrection.”

The “day of resurrection” was 2,000 years ago. As we already know, that was the day of resurrection for our Lord the Christ Jesus. Even the devil knows this; he was imprisoned on that day. But something else happened at that time which few have yet to recognize. Seven thousand Jews were raised with the crucifixion of the Christ, and seven-thousand Jews were raised with the Christ into the “holy city.” This was the first resurrection of Revelation 20:4. and these seven-thousand were chosen by grace. (Reference “The First Resurrection“)

Like the Christians who have yet to recognize this, Satan keeps the focus of men on the future. He wants God’s people looking down the road and not recognizing  what’s already in the past. For as soon as they do, he becomes extinct. men are soon to recognize that we,  those who read these lines – in these last days, we are the last. We are the last to be transformed and raised. for the “rest of the dead” (Rev 20:5) have been raised before us.

What the devil teaches, what men recognize, is one day of salvation. But what Scripture has proven is that the day of resurrection has been different for all who have died before us. The devil is a liar…

 The verse preceding Allah’s lie above is this one: “And (the Jews) planned and Allah (also) planned. And Allah is the best of planners.” The meaning of this is “The Jews planned to put Jesus to death by crucifixion, and Allah made a plan to frustrate their plans; and Allah’s plan was successful, i.e. he (Jesus) was saved from death on the cross.” – Maulana Muhammad Ali, translating author of the English version of the Qur’an. Islam denies Jesus’ death upon the cross, they deny his resurrection from death, and they deny his being the Son of God.

“He (Jesus) was only what the Prophet (Muhammad) described him to be in his controversy with Najran deputation when he said to them: ‘Do you not know that Jesus was conceived by a woman in the manner in which all women conceive?” The (false) prophet continued on; “The deputation replied to all these questions in the affirmative, on which the prophet said, ‘then how can you claim (that he was God or the Son of God) be true?’ ” – Qur’an 3:44a

We recognize the prophet who followed Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection was, of course, Paul. He was the deliverer of the gospel to the Gentiles. But Islam ignores him and recognizes their prophet as the one prophesied to appear after the Christ.

Make no mistake, Muhammad – the FALSE PROPHET – was spoken of – BY NAME – in the Bible. Of course, we know that Muhammad had several self-appointed names. But none is more convicting than his name given in Revelation 13:18. (Refer to “Revealing the Mystery of 666“)

For those who recognize Allah as “God” and who promote the practice of Islam within our communities – has not the false “god” have you confused now? He created his own book – in his own image. Does that sound familiar? Why recreate the story of god when there is a template already offered? All the dragon had to do was mirror the God of heaven, deny the prophets before him – all 42 of them – and implement his own “prophet” to set everyone straight. Hence, Muhammad, Islam and the Qur’an…

The Qur’an is little more than an un-repentant confession to the warnings that were previously offered within the Bible – warnings offered at least 600 years prior to the “invention” of Islam.

The question often asked of “…this opposed to that…” is addressed in multiple places. It is referred to as “knowledge” and it appears in Genesis 3:4 & Daniel 12:4. It also appears in Qur’an 20:114. Some will go here – to the Bible – for knowledge. Some will go there – outside of the Bible – for knowledge. It is knowledge that either leads to eternal life or it leads to eternal death.

The serpent twisted the words of God and told Eve that ‘she would surely not die” if she ate the fruit of the tree. Of course, God told her that she would die by eating that fruit. Well, the world ends in the very same manner that it began. Muhammad and his Allah tell their followers that hell is only temporary – and they certainly will not perish!

Re: Qur’an 11:107: “This limitation on the duration of abiding in hell — except as thy Lord please – is given twice in the Holy Qur’an, here and in 6:128, and it shows clearly that the punishment of hell is not everlasting.” – Qur’an 11:107a

Of course, that is a lie and contrary to God’s warning, specifically that of Rev 20:10.

Like the twisted words of the serpent (Satan) – given only three chapters into the Bible – the words of the Qur’an may seem like the “honey” of the Bible (reference to Rev 10) but they are the “beverage of many hues” (chapter 16 – “The Bee”) which make men sick and cause them to perish.

The “Muslims” who say the things, in which you have been quoted, cannot tell their right hand – the God of heaven, from their left hand – the “god” of Muhammad. After the pens of God’s prophets were laid down, we were to expect one more. We were to expect a LIAR. And he appeared in the 7th century.

Muhammad holds NO respect for the prophets before him. Though he SAYS he does, he’s a LIAR!

Following is the understanding of those led by Islam’s prophet:

“The Bible speaks of many of the prophets of God as committing the most heinous sins; it speaks of Abraham as telling lies and casting away Hagar and her son; it speaks of Lot as committing incest with his own daughters; it speaks of Aaron as making a calf for worship and leading the Israelites to its worship; it speaks of David as committing adultery with Uriah’s wife; it speaks of Solomon as worshipping idols; but the Holy Qur’an accepts none of these statements, definitely rejects most of them and clears these prophets of the false charges against them. The unlearned (illiterate) Prophet of Arabia swept away the errors which were a blot on the face of prophethood.” – Qur’an, Maulana Muhammad Ali, p. I-38

Muhammad’s promise of Jesus’ return is to serve his “god” Satan. Again, Muhammad is a LIAR who delivered a very powerful delusion (2 Thessalonians 2). Most in the world today, even the elect, cannot tell the difference between God and Muhammad’s Allah. But most of those elect have NOT read the Qur’an.

We have…

In our world, we have been given two choices; we can choose love and life or we can choose death and destruction. In some of the harshest of God’s laws, he instructed his people to follow his laws or face the consequences of death. For about 1,400 years, the Jews faced only death – no man could abide by all 613 laws of God and earn his or her way to God. Without the tribulations of the Jews, this could be arguable. As it is, this is not to be denied.

By the single example of the Christ Jesus, saving the prostitute, we know that the laws of God remain, but the righteous application of death has been removed from the hands of men. With grace present in the world, a man’s sins can be removed and he is recognized as forgiven. Only God can define the sins of men and only God can forgive the sins of men. How then can any man inflict or command the death of another if the saving grace of God is now an option?

The answer is simple… they cannot.

On Friday, December 14, 2012 the world witnessed yet another act of death and destruction. Though the man who pulled the trigger deserves death (a second time), it is only God who can make that call. For the twenty children, those whose lifeless bodies were left upon a classroom floor, they are being cared for by the loving God of heaven. They were children and unable to yet choose their destiny. For that reason, God chooses for them. God chooses love and life. Like the baby without a conscience, the waters of baptism are fruitless. No man can decide for another who is to be saved and who is to perish. Of the seven adults killed, each had determined their own eternal direction.

In this unforgiving and evil world, there are those who make the decision between life and death for another. But all they can kill is the body.

“Remember him – before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.” – Ecclesiastes 12:6-7

Because we all deserve death, death will come. For some, their bodies will grow old and run out of life. For others, illness or accident will cut the body away from its soul. And still others, like the twenty-seven in Newtown, someone who has already chosen death for themselves will choose death for others as well. But that is all they can do. A first death we will all see. A second death is only for those who so choose.

Whether one is a false prophet, a fake god, or a disciple of death and destruction – they all share one thing in common. They will serve together forever, in a very hot and hostile place. They will burn, just as they have chosen.

We are all given that choice.
