“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that putteth bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

The Holy Land Foundation (HLF) was the largest Islamic charity in the United States, headquartered in Richardson, Texas. In December 2001, the US government charged HLF with funding Hamas, a Palestinian terrorist organization, they seized its assets and closed it down. After two years, a federal grand jury charged HLF and five former officers and employees with crimes related to funding Hamas. The first trial ended in one acquittal and a hung jury. The defendants were retried and all were convicted of all counts in 2008. The defendants were given sentences ranging from 15 to 65 years in prison for funneling $12 million to Hamas. Albeit, there are still Muslim terrorist front groups operating right here in the United States. In fact, there are nearly 300 other Muslim terrorist-supporting groups not being prosecuted in the US. Every one of these front groups were started by the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), according to the testimony of Lieutenant General William G. Boykin, former Commander of Delta Force and former US Deputy Undersecretary of Defense. He said many of these terrorist groups are “unindicted coconspirators” with the HLF terrorist organization. Why were the others not indicted? In 1871 Ulysses S. Grant cracked down on the Ku Klux Klan, after they refused to dissolve, and hundreds were arrested by federal troops and prosecuted, rightly so. It isn’t as though the US government doesn’t know where these front groups are. Government officials actually named them “unindicted coconspirators” with HLF, yet still refused to prosecute them in 2008! We only need to remember who took the presidential post in 2008 to understand the reason why CAIR operates openly and freely, as well as hundreds of other terrorist groups. Am I kidding? I wish it was so...but that’s not all! A study was conducted in 2011, which included 53 court cases around the United States. The study actually revealed that judges admitted administering “justice” using Shariah law as the foundation for their rulings, which is illegal and a violation of the US Constitution. There were more than 80 Shariah courts in the United Kingdom in 2010, and there are more today. Those that say this kind of thing can’t happen here in the United States are not facing reality, nor do they understand Bible prophecy. One of the most egregious cases involved a Muslim woman’s family court case in the State of New Jersey. The woman sought a restraining order to stop her Muslim husband from beating and raping her repeatedly. The residing judge actually refused to issue a restraining order, stating the reason was because “your husband is a Muslim and he is allowed to beat and rape you.” The woman won her case on appeal, but these outrageous Shariah rulings are happening throughout the US and, tragically, not everyone is able to appeal to higher courts. Barack Hussein Obama has been migrating Muslims into the US by the tens of thousands since he took office, and myriads have been allowed in through the open US-Mexico border.

The Word of God tells us that the antichrist “will cause all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or on their foreheads, that no man might buy or sell, except he who has the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of his name...” Revelation 13:16-18. The Bible also tells us that those who do not receive his mark will be beheaded, “I saw thrones and those who sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them; and I saw the souls of those who were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, who had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands, and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years” Revelation 20:4.

The Islamic State (IS) rose up out of Iraq, the ancient City of Babylon. The Assyrians rebuilt Babylon in 609 BC and it became the largest city in the world at that time. They warred against Israel to destroy them after Israel worshiped idols and forsook the Lord. The Prophets Isaiah and Micah wrote that the “Assyrian” (referring to the antichrist) would come against Israel also in the latter days (Isaiah 10:24, 14:25; Micah 5:5-6) and that the Lord will smite him. As we see the antichrist kingdom rising again out of ancient Babylon (Micah 4:10), beheading Christians and threatening to destroy Israel, we can clearly see that the Lord’s return is imminent.

God bless you.
