Most whom I discuss Islam with, do not understand its complexities and confusions.
Most critics of Islam speak more about the violence and the Sharia. Islam is much more than this, since it was authored by the author of confusion, the devil. It has prophecies meant to confuse the ardent skeptic. For example, Hamza Yusuf, a Muslim scholar condemns ISIS and speaks of Islamic prophecies which condemn ISIS as evil:
The simpleton will say “wow”, here we have a peaceful Muslim giving prophecies where Ali, Muhammad’s nephew, supposedly predicted the coming of ISIS. When ISIS comes, Islam predicts, that Muslims are ordered “to remain in their homes” and “shut the doors”. Islam describes ISIS as “their hearts are like iron” “they will not keep covenants” “their members will not go by their real names and instead use their nicknames and pseudonyms” “they have long hair like women” “they are Arabs” “there will be a smoke” …
The precise predictions seem to give evidence according to Hamza, that the ISIS phenomenon was predicted by Islam and goes contrary to true Islam.
But will such heretics who supposedly left Christianity to Islam, be any match to Muslim converts to Christianity when it comes to understanding Prophecy? I challenge this heretic anytime.
Most who see Hamza think he is definitely some Arab scholar. Fact is, Hamza, who says that the sign of evil ISIS, is that their members do not go by their real name, while Hamza himself is pure bread American born “Mark Hanson” and not “Hamza Yusuf”. In this, he fits the very bill he says that Islam predicted about ISIS will change their names and Hamza has been known to support Jihad warfare, but not the style ISIS advocates.
Hamza was born in Washington State and raised in Northern California. He grew up a practicing Greek Orthodox Christian and attended prep schools on both the east and west coasts. He was first influenced by the Sufi brand of Islam and was taught by Abdalqadir as-Sufi, another who does not go by their real name, – a Scottish convert to Islam and leader of the Darqawa Sufi order and the Murabitun World Movement. Yusuf moved to Norwich, England to study directly under as-Sufi. In 1977, after a near-death experience and reading the Qur’an, he converted to Islam from Christianity.
Being as wise as a serpent, as Jesus commanded, I am not amused, the prophecy which Hamza quotes, ordering Muslims to stay in their homes and shut the doors, the devils of Islam stole from the Bible:
“Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” (Isaiah 26:20-21)
When Christ comes, there will be such a calamity, that Christians will shut their doors and their windows, that perhaps the oxygen in the atmosphere will deplete that anyone outside will die and who remains indoors will live from the oxygen that remains sealed indoors. A few hours and everyone outside will perish. This is a parallel to the prophecy in the times of Moses in Egypt when God ordered the Israelites to remain indoors and post the mark of the Cross on the door posts, header and lintel, using the blood of lambs to point where our Lord was to be wounded on his forehead, hands and feet.
The Islamic predictions of ISIS with “men with hair of women” and “hearts of iron” is also stolen from the Bible: “They had hair like the hair of women, and their teeth were like the teeth of lions.” (Revelation 9:8)
Hamza admits that Muhammad himself had long hair like women. Muhammad braided his hair and even put mascara like women.
Not trusting ISIS in any covenant, as Hamza mentions, is easily extracted from the spirit of Antichrist who will break his covenant of peace (Daniel 9:27). The “Dakhan” (smoke) which the video incorrectly translated as “cloud” also stems from the same chapter in Revelation 9:2-3:
When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth
The black flags is also stolen from the Bible where John predicted the black horse (Revelation 6:4). Hamza now says that this is an a evil sign according to Islam while other Hadiths says quite the opposite: “Armies carrying black flags will come from Khurasan. No power will be able to stop them and they will finally reach Eela (Jerusalem) where they will erect their flags.” (1) Abdul Rahman al-Wahabi in the The Day of Wrath states: “The final battle will be waged by Muslim faithfuls coming on the backs of horses…carrying black banners. They will stand on the East side of the Jordan River and will wage war that the earth has never seen before. The true Messiah who is the Islamic Mahdi will defeat Europe, will lead this army of Seljuks [Turks]. He will preside over the world from Jerusalem because Mecca would have been destroyed.” (2)
The Seljuk Empire consisted of Turks that preceded the Ottoman Empire. It covered the region of Turkey, Northern Iran, Syria, Iraq, Southern Caucasus, and Azerbaijan. Many Islamic scholars believe that the Mahdi will lead an army of Turks and will rule over Israel. But even all this was already predicted in the Bible (See God’s War on Terror, Islam Prophecy and The Bible).
Expounding on the tradition of the black banners, the so-called “moderate” Sheikh Kabbani, the darling of many conservative Americans, states that the armies will come from the region of Iran: “Hadith indicate that black flags coming from the area of Khorasan [Iran] will signify [that] the appearance of the Mahdi is nigh. Khorasan is in today’s Iran, and some scholars have said that this Hadith means when the black flags appear from Cen- tral Asia, i.e., in the direction of Khorasan (Iran), then the appearance of the Mahdi is imminent.” (3)
All this is now “bad” in the version of American Islam by Hamza?
These are masters of deception.
Such prophecies were robbed from the Bible to be applied to the ISIS phenomenon, a phenomenon which requires every American to be armed. America are the people of the gun, no one can match Americans when it comes to self-defense and no ISIS can match such abilities. ISIS released a video showing how they are now training their children to become assassins:
In order to fight what is coming from ISIS, every American must begin to learn their Bibles and keep up on how to fire their weapons with speed and accuracy. Aim small miss small and love your gun.
But what match is ISIS to Americans? What I love about America is their love for the gun. Who in ISIS can match Jerry Miculek:
Or who can match Bob Munden:
If ISIS has guts, have them send their Baghdadi (Bag-Dadi) to meet Munden. Their Daddy man will be sent back in a body bag while the Muslims will cry Bag-Daddy instead of Allahu Akbar.
O how the world digresses before the coming of our Lord. Today we have Muslims and three hundred and sixty five days of gays.
I just yearn for the good old days when music was music:
