Here is a scholarly essay, difficult to refute evidences, rarely if ever used, powerful, packed with references, that you can use when witnessing to everyone who rejects Christianity to aid the Church to win souls and defeat the devil.
The mission of the Christian is to win souls.
One key when witnessing to Muslims, including all non-Christians for that matter, you must show them that they are pagans who worship lucifer.
While this at times can be offensive, it is a necessary method. No Muslim (or any cult for that matter) who became Christian avoided this topic; first ask the Muslim: do you ever wonder why in the Bible God addresses only two religious categories: 1) God’s children or 2) pagans?
God calls all His enemies “the heathen”. One amazing verse in Scripture which is rarely if ever used by Christians witnessing to Muslims is in Ezekiel 39:
“the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.” (Ezekiel 39:7)
Ask them: ever wonder why that this amazing verse is unlike the rest of all other verses where God is described as “the Holy One of Israel”? Why is it here “the Holy One in Israel”? Why is it that here “the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel”?
The Holy One of Israel in Hebrew would be Kodosh-Israel קָדוֹשׁ יִשְׂרָאֵל. Yet here in Ezekiel 39:7, it strictly says “the Holy One in Israel” which in Hebrew would be Kodosh-b-Israel קָדוֹשׁ בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל.
The difference between the two is one Hebrew letter בְּ which is “b”, the second letter in all Semitic languages. God loves the alphabet where He says “I Am the Alpha and the Omega” …
Putting the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet בְּ (b) in Hebrew after the word קָדוֹשׁ (Holy One) and before the name יִשְׂרָאֵל (Israel) renders it “Kodosh-b-Israel” which literally means “Holy One in Israel”. Why is God here “in Israel”? How, why and when does He land there to be in Israel’s midst?
Just this one letter alone makes all the difference to confirm that Christian theology is correct and all other theologies deadly wrong. Unlike all cults, it proves that God will come down to earth; that Jesus is God and the Second Person of the Holy Trinity.
No one ever considered; one letter destroys not just the entire Muslim Quran, but every cult on earth. This is quite amazing.
Now you know why I left Islam.
By using the second letter in the Hebrew alphabet (and in all Semitic alphabets) reading “the Holy One in Israel” reveals the Second Head of the Trinity since here, He is “The Holy One” (God) and at that time, He is in Israel fighting the armies of Magog. The only way the Muslim with the rest of the heathen world will know the Lord is through this military defeat where they will know that God did and will come in the flesh.
Just this single one letter refutes and puts to rest the many assumptions, like Ezekiel 38 being a pre-Armageddon battle. And by this one letter “b” God defeats Islam’s entire theology, and all other theologies declaring them “heathen” (pagan) since by adding just this one letter, God proves His literal presence on earth at the time. This proves the Reincarnation, Sonship, Messiahship and Kingdom while calling the invading nations (Turkey, Libya, Iran, the Caucasus) “the heathen”.
God even uses this label “the heathen” five times in the context of Ezekiel 38-39 Gog and Magog war: 38:16, 39:7, 39:21, 39:23, 39:28.
Five happens to be the very holy number to Muslims. Muslims pray 5 times daily. Islam is 5 pillars. Its star Panjetan or Holy Pentagram is 5 resembling Ahl Al-Bait or People of the House, the Five Holy Purified Ones are the members of Muhammad‘s family: Muhammad, Ali, Fatima, Hasan, and Husayn and is often symbolically represented by an image of the Khamsa (five). Islam’s most blasphemous chapter is the fifth chapter of the Quran, Al-Maʼida (The Table Spread) mentioning Christ in the most blasphemous verses:
“they disbelieved when they said: ‘Christ, the son of Mary, is indeed God’; whereas Christ had said: ‘Children of Israel! Serve Allah, Who is your Lord and my Lord.’ …Those who said: ‘Allah is one of the Three’ …The Messiah, son of Mary, was no more than a Messenger”
Ezekiel 39:7 reveals ‘Christ, the son of Mary, is indeed God’ and the Son of God and will manifest “in Israel” where Ezekiel declared it: “I am the Lord the Holy One IN Israel”.
To prove Islam is “pagan” have the Muslim refute what we have here. It matters not what you are; Mormon, Muslim, Jehovah’s Witness, Liberal … you are nothing more than a pagan according to the Bible.
Paganism is the usual faith of the left. Likewise, Islam is occultism with a monotheistic shell.
While Muslims deny any pagan astral connection or worship, they too bow several times a day towards an asteroid, the Black Stone, that fell from the heavens. This makes them pagan. They are pagan despite their denial.
When the Muslim counters with “the Black Stone is simply symbolic” ask him what no one ever asks. The Jesus-style question you would never find used by missionaries sent out to convert Muslims is this: Mr. Muslim, if indeed this image you venerate is simply an object, why according to your prophet it “comes to life to testify of all who touched it”? The Black Stone in Muhammad’s view will “have eyes and ears and will become alive” and according to Islam, it has the power to redeem the Muslims who venerate it from all sin. (01)
This is a grand claim indeed.
Al-Tirmidhi notes that many years ago, the Black Stone was:
“whiter than milk; it was only later that it became black as it absorbed the sins of those who touched it.”
So according to Islam, it takes away sin.
A Jesus-style question rarely asked to Muslims is this: despite what we disagree on regarding Jesus, which of the two is more worthy to redeem sin, Christ or a stone?
Ask him or her why the writing in the Qur’an mingles well in today’s bookstore shelves alongside Wicca and astrology? The Koran is filled with astrological references and nature based spirituality. One Wicca prayer similar to the Quran reads:
“By the power of moon and sun, By the power of Spirit, earth and sea, God and Goddess are part of One, As I Will, so mote it be!” (2)
Similarly, in the Koran it reads:
“I swear by the sun and its brilliance, And the moon when it follows the sun” (Q 91:1-2)
Mr. Muslim, find one Christian who swears by the sun and the moon?
Missionaries do not pay close attention, that from Islam all the way to Mormonism, Nazism, even including today’s liberalism these tried to cloak themselves with Christianity, yet we can show without any doubt that all these are laced with paganism.
And just like Muhammad attending the mysterious Ghar Hira’ to receive messages from a bright angel he made union with, Hitler himself wrote of a certain mystical power of the moon writing that he often went:
“on bitter nights To Wotan’s oak in the quiet glade With dark powers to weave a union—The runic letter the moon makes with its magic spell and all who are full of impudence during the day are made small by the magic formula.” (3)
Wotan was Hitler’s Ghar-Hira where Muhammad inspirations began with similar fascination:
“by the Moon as a witness, and by the darkness of night as it wanes.” (Q 74:32)
Whether crescent, sun or Hindu swastica, it all leads to lucifer and is why Hitler preferred Islam and Hinduism (Hitler was vegetarian) over what he called “the flabby religion of Christianity”. Lucifer is why Islam united with Nazism. Hinduism is why Hitler loved the swastica. Christ told us that lucifer’s kingdom, while it has different faces, it is not divided when it comes to doing evil.
Joseph Smith, like Muhammad and like Hitler, loved to go on seclusions to gaze at the moon and obtain visions. The old Mormon temple in Nauvoo is riddled with crescent moons, stars and sun carvings on limestone. Mormonism’s Doctrine and Covenant reads:
“Which truth shineth. This is the light of Christ. As also He is in the sun, and the light of the sun, and the power thereof by which it was made. Also He [Christ] is in the moon, and is the light of the moon, and the power thereof by which it was made; As also the light of the stars, and the power thereof by which they were made;” (4)
Why would Christ in Mormonism as Allah in Islam be infused in the matter of the sun, moon and stars? Islam is riddled with parallels to Wicca, Nazism, Hinduism, Mormonism and even the ancient Babylonian and Mayan cults. All non-Christian religions are cut of the same cloth.
The left tries to have a progressive façade; claiming to be scientific, advocates of “change” and the “move forward”. If moving forward is their goal, ask them, why is it that progressives are moving backward—sure they like change—to change us all back to Paganism?
If in doubt, just watch Al Gore. Ask the global-warmest: if Gore is simply promoting scientific global warming, why is he introducing us to pagan nature-based spirituality? In his Earth In The Balance Gore introduces his god:
“modern prayer of the Onondaga tribe in upstate New York offers another beautiful expression of our essential connection to the earth: ‘O Great Spirit, whose breath gives life to the world and whose voice is heard in the soft breeze make us wise so that we may understand what you have taught us.’” (5)
To Gore, the earth is not some matter to sustain life, it is life itself, it is his god. If one thinks that Gore is simply making a reference—Gore even calls upon pagan gods for wisdom:
“The richness and diversity of our religious tradition throughout history is a spiritual resource long ignored by people of faith, who are often afraid to open their minds to teachings first offered outside their own system of belief…But the emergence of a civilization in which knowledge moves freely and almost instantaneously throughout the world has spurred a renewed investigation of the wisdom distilled by all faiths…This pan religious perspective may prove especially important where our global civilization’s responsibility for the earth is concerned” (6)
Then comes the thrust of Gore’s message, to worship mother earth:
“The spiritual sense of our place in nature predates Native American cultures; increasingly it can be traced to the origins of human civilization…A growing number of anthropologists and archeo-mythologists argue that the prevailing ideology of belief in prehistoric Europe and much of the world was based on the worship of a single earth goddess, who was assumed to be the fount of all life and who radiated harmony among all living things…Much of the evidence for the existence of this primitive religion comes from the many thousands of artifacts uncovered in ceremonial sites. These sites are so widespread that they seem to confirm the notion that a goddess religion was ubiquitous throughout much of the world until the antecedents of today’s religions—most of which still have a distinctly masculine orientation—swept out of India and the Near East, almost obliterating belief in the goddess…” (7)
Liberalism is pagan. So who is the culprit behind the destruction of earth-goddess? Gore gladly exposes it:
“The last vestige of organized goddess worship was eliminated by Christianity” (8)
Ask the liberal: if religious-harmony is the goal, why then is Christianity always considered “the enemy” by all other religions? I always ask: if your god loves every reprobate, why is it that he only hates the homophobe and the Islamophobe?
The answer is simple. Lucifer hates the homophobe and the Islamophobe. The modern Christian who throws his mantra that “Jesus is love” while mostly ridiculing the homophobe is no different than a pagan.
MANY PAGANS CLAIM CHRIST AND STILL WOSHIP LUCIFER
Gore says similar things and he even sounds like an Evangelical:
“My own faith is rooted in the unshakable belief in God as creator and sustainer, a deeply personal interpretation of and relationship with Christ and an awareness of a constant and holy spiritual presence in all people, all life and all things” (p. 368).
People are easily fooled. Anyone can say that they “have a relationship with Christ”. Of course, without the secret pass, this simple disclaimer, the thief can say ‘open-sesame’ and the fool opens his gates. Without this “I have a relationship with Christ”, Gore will not be able to introduce his Wiccan views:
“My understanding of how God is manifest in the world can be best conveyed through the metaphor of the hologram; I believe that the image of the Creator, which sometimes seems so faint in the tiny corner of creation each of us beholds, is nonetheless present in its entirety” (p. 265).
EXPOSING THE DEVIL IN ALL HEATHEN CULTS
All heathens worship the devil and all devil worshippers are pagan. No exceptions. Wiccan revere ancient goddesses such as Ishtar, a goddess in which Islam has roots in. Sahar (Morning Star) has its links with Akkadian elletu (Ishtar) and Arabic Hilal (New Moon). (9) The term “new moon” is not simply some observance Muhammad had with the cosmos. It is quite imbedded in Islamic spirituality.
Stephen Langdon, in his fine work Allah, His Heritage In Paganism confirms Islam’s link:
“Allat was a Babylonian, or earth and moon goddess. Her consort Allah was simply the god who impregnates the earth.” (10)
No matter how Muslim apologists attempt to vindicate Islam’s connection to such ancient deities by using disclaimers that he believes in Christ, one could find a litany of references in both the Qur’ân and the Hadith venerating the moon. Whenever Muhammad saw a new moon he said:
“O Allah, let this crescent loom above us in safety, faith, peace and Islam. Make it a crescent of good and guidance. My Lord and your Lord is Allah.” (11)
Allah was the Lord of the Moon. The worship of the moon is also attested to by proper names of people such as Hilal, a crescent; Qamar. (12) Hilal also means “the shining one” in ancient Aramaic Hebrew, Arabic and Ethiopian “Moon crescent.” He is a Moon-god.” (13) Sahar or Shahar is Hebrew for dawn or morning star. It is noteworthy that the meaning of these two words Hilal and Sahar combined, make up the Islamic symbol of crescent moon and star.
This is exactly how Isaiah 14 referred to lucifer “Hilal bin Sahar” translated as “The Luminous One” or Heylel ben Sahar in Hebrew. This is why in Islam, as the Arabic dictionary reveals, “Ihlal Al-Hilal” is the “appearance of the moon crescent”. Ihlal simply means “appeared”. Ihlal Al-Hilal simply means “the crescent appeared”.
It all has to do with Muhammad’s Night of Vision and the encounter Muhammad had with the angel of light are the bases of the Islamic claim. It describes the “rising of the dawn” which Ramadan is commemorated and Muslims begin their fast as the crescent moon appears (Ihlal) with Venus (morning star). Many Muslims wait until the late hours of the night gazing at the sky, waiting to see the sky open to see if the angelic host will descend:
“We have sent it to thee in the Night of Vision, what do you know of this Night of Vision. The Night of Vision is better then a thousand months. The angelic hosts descend [to earth] in it with the Spirit by command of their Lord. Peace shall it be until the rising of the Dawn (Morning star)” (Q 97)
The morning dawn (star) and the crescent moon are important symbols to Muslims everywhere. Even when terrorists from over 40 different organizations assembled in Tehran, they gave the name of the summit “Ten Days of Dawn.” (14) The story in Isaiah 14 regarding ‘The Luminous One’ Heylel ben Sahar and his fallen angels seem to connect. The Qur’ân speaks of the angelic host descending to earth (dawn, the spirit, their lord).
The Koran explains this dawn-god:
“Say: ‘I seek refuge in [Allah] the lord of the Daybreak, from the evil of what he has created; and from the evil of the night when it comes on; and from the evil of the witches who blow upon knots, and from the evil of the envious when he envies.’” (Koran 113)
So for Muslims to claim that they seek refuge in only God is a fallacy. Allah is the lord of the dawn. He is the “lord of the daybreak” who creates evil.
This is lucifer.
The Qur’ân speaks of the dawn, when the angelic host came down from heaven. This is what scriptures warned us about when God casts out lucifer and his minions (Ezekiel 28:12-19, Isaiah 14:12-14, Jude 6, II Peter 2:4, Revelation 9:1, Revelation 12:4).
If oceans can separate continents, paganism seem to connect them. This is true even amongst peoples who never communicated in their era, it is astonishing to see how much in common these cults have.
Quetzalcoatl, the Mayan serpentine bird who contrasts with the angel Tawus al- Malaeka (the peacock of angels) which Muhammad encountered—the peacock-bird angel—had similar description being referred to as:
“the Dawn god or the god of Light when day wants to come in…at daybreak. They say that it was created before the sun.” (15)
This “morning star” is ancient stemming from Arabia and penetrating all continents even the Americas. In the ancient book Popol Vuh, the anceint Mexican story of the creation of the world and the genealogy of the Quiche kingdom in Guatemala, shows a prayer to the gods, which parallels Koranic prayers to Allah said by supposedly the first peoples of the Quiche:
“‘Let it dawn; let the day come! Give us many good roads, flat roads! May the people have peace, much peace, and may they be happy; and give us good life and useful existence! […] grandmother of the sun, grandmother of the light, let there be dawn, and let the light come!’ “Thus they spoke while they saw and invoked the coming of the sun, the arrival of day; and at the same time that they saw the rising of the sun, they contemplated the Morning Star, the Great Star, which comes ahead of the sun, that lights up the arch of the sky and the surface of the earth, and illuminates the steps of the men who had been created and made.” (16)
Thomas Stewart Denison in his study of Mexican (Mayan) liguistics and Comparative Vocabulary in which the god Nanauatzin and Nanepaushat, the ancient Mexican moon-god (17) would etymologically sound like the god Nanaru, the Babylonian moon-god and Mannat the Arabian pre-Islam pagan deity.
The crescent moon was also much revered in Aztec civilization in which they worshiped Tecciztecatl or ‘Old moon god’ who represents the male form on the planet. He is called “he who comes from the land of the sea-slug shell” because of the similar looks between the crescent moon and the slug.” (18)
The worship of a dawn god can also go back, like the others, to ancient Hindu writings called the Rigveda in the tenth century B.C. which mentions Ushas or “the dawn”:
“The radiant Dawns have risen up for glory, in their white splendour like the waves of waters. She maketh paths all easy, fair to travel, and, rich, hath shown herself benign and friendly. We see that thou art good: far shines thy lustre; thy beams, thy splendours have flown up to heaven. Decking thyself, thou makest bare thy bosom, shining in majesty, thou Goddess Morning. [….] O Goddess Dawn, much good thou brings.” (19)
Compare the Hindu prayer with Islam’s oldest nasheed hymnal Tala’a Al-Badru:
“O the White Moon rose over us from the Valley of Wada’ and we owe it to show gratefulness where the call is to Allah.”
Even all over Europe they worshiped lucifer the crescent. Tarvos Trimarans is the bull god. Tarvos means ‘bull’ (20) and Garanus means ‘crane’ “the bird” (21) Tarvos Trigaranus is accompanied by three long-legged marsh birds (22)
And to connect it even better so no doubt arises. This bull-crescent and cranes is Muhammad’s annulled satanic verses when he exalted the three cranes:
“Have ye seen Allat and Uzzah, and Mannat the third goddess? These are the exalted [three] cranes whose intercession is to be hoped for.”
So we have the morning star, moon crescent, three cranes, Mesoamerica’s Nanauathzin and Nanepaushat and Mannat … all the same facades to one deity: lucifer.
Neo-pagan liberals enjoy delving into the cesspool of heathen gods and goddesses, especially that of “The Horned One” a Celtic god of fertility, life, animals, wealth, and the underworld (23). The Horned God, the most “male” in the conventional sense, of the Goddess’ projections, is the eternal Hunter, and also the animal which is hunted. He is the beast who is sacrificed that human life may go on, as well as the sacrificer, the one who sheds blood. He is also seen as the sun, eternally hunting the moon across the sky.
The waxing and waning of the sun throughout the seasons manifest the cycle of birth and death, creation and dissolution, separation and return. The horns of the Horned God are believed to represent his domain over the woodlands, and his association with the bull and ram, the animal consorts of the Goddess. His horns also symbolize the crescent moon, the symbol of the Goddess, and represent the increase in all things and waxing fertility. If anything, the last decades reveal the revival of all ancient pagan religions that died centuries ago. They all await the lucifer-Antichrist to unite them. They are now spreading throughout the world like wildfire destroying everything green and are awaiting to persecute Christians in every spot on this globe so that the seed of lucifer hunts down the seed of the Woman.
Neo-pagans believe that there is no association between the Horned God and the Luminous One mentioned in the Bible. They say Christians have confusingly tried to make such a connection. (24) However they paint this horned one whose “horns symbolize the crescent moon” he is the same god Allah of pre-Islamic Arabia and the same god the ancient Europeans committed human sacrifices to, and today, Allah has Muslims sacrifice themselves through martyrdom for his sake.
Islam is neo-Babylonian connecting to the moon-god of ancient Mesopotamia originally called Sin depicted as:
“a young bull (the strong bull of heaven) perfect in every part: his beard is said to be of lapis lazuli: his orb is a giant self-propagating fruit. The god’s horns are taken to be a reference to the crescent moon, although they are also sometimes regarded as the boat in which he skims through the midst of the heavens.” (25)
French historian Robert Briffault explains this resettlement:
“[Sin’s] supreme character passed in later times to his female counterpart, who finally replaced him. When the female aspect of the lunar deity came to displace the male, the wife of the moon-god became identified with the moon itself, while the goddess Ishtar maintained her association with the planet Venus. This identification is symbolically represented by the lunar crescent, enclosing the star within its horns, which is still the crest of Islam” (26)
Caton Thompson’s book, The Tombs and Moon Temple of Hureidha, discusses the uncovering of a temple of the moon god in southern Arabia. The symbols of the crescent moon and no less than twenty-one inscriptions with the name “Sin” were found in this temple. The Arabic word for ‘god’ is ‘Ilah’ and the moon god became synonymous with “al-Ilah,” meaning “the god;” pagan Arabia believed that the moon god was the greatest of all the gods, hence the phrase “Allahu Akbar,” meaning “Allah is greater.” This is what led Muhammad to go one step further and proclaim in the Qur’ân that la ilaha ila Allah—there is no god but Allah.
Inscriptions of “al-Ilah” have been found on an idol with the crescent moon and star symbols. The pagan Arabs connected “Allah” to the names of their children.
Ask the Muslim as to why is Mohammed’s father name was AbdAllah, meaning “servant of Allah”?
It was because the least offensive name of the god in Mecca was Allah according to Muhammad’s biographer, Ibn Hisham. He admits that the pagan Kinanah and Kouraish tribes called the supervising god of the Kaaba IHLAL. They called the Kaaba “BEIT- ALLAH“, house of the god! (27)
This is lucifer, Hilal ben Sahar, mentioned in Isaiah 14 which is always translated as “lucifer”.
Muslims still practice the Ihlal during the pilgrimage reciting the same ancient formula called labayk (which I memorized when I was Muslim the whole chant) used in the ritual when Muslims circumambulate (tawaf) round about the Black Stone. Such terms and even the Black Stone itself are nowhere to be found in the Koran and have stemmed from Babel into pagan Arabia.
According to historian William St. Clair-Tisdall, Ihalal was used to address the deity of Allah in which the Haj ceremony was called Ihalal a metathesis of Hilal, meaning the crescent moon. (28)
Muhammad did not come up with anything new. Even the killing of converts was not unusual in pre-Islamic practice in Arabia, just as it is not unusual today. Josephus tells the story of Sylleus the Arab, who fell in love with Salome in Herod’s kingdom, but he would not convert at her request for fear of being stoned by his people, the Arabs. (29)
Sir Leonard Woolley excavated a temple of the moon god in Ur (Babylon). His findings are displayed in the British Museum. In the 1950s, a major temple of the moon god was excavated at Hazer in “Palestine.” Two idols of the moon god were found. Each was a statue of a man sitting upon a throne with a crescent moon carved on his chest, and the inscriptions confirm the items were idols. They also found several smaller
statues bearing inscriptions identifying them as the “daughters” of the moon god. (30)
Today’s Allah simply evolved through Islam from this horned god— His crescent symbol the Hilal is everywhere and on the tips of minarets and is in all the neo-paganism books – all pagan religions exalt the moon and sun, representing masculine and feminine deities.
Allah historically was a male fertility god married to his feminine form Allat who was a Babylonian earth and moon goddess. Her consort Allah was simply the god who impregnates the earth (Allat). (31) The origin of Allah and Allat were as sun and moon deities just like Wicca where there is a huge stress on the god and the goddess in that they are the main tenets of the Wiccan faith, similarly, Allah and Allat translates to “the god and the goddess”.
Wiccan writer Scott Cunningham writes that for:
“some Wiccans, watching the sun or moon rise and set each day is a ritual unto itself, for these are the heavenly symbols of the God and Goddess.” (32)
This parallels what Muslims believe, that the:
“Sun and the Moon are two of the Signs (ayat) of Allah: they do not darken for the death or birth of any person, but Allah strikes fear into His servants by means of them. So when you see them darken, remember and mention Allah, declare His Greatness, offer prayer, give in charity, and supplicate to Him and seek His forgiveness.” (33)
Wiccans as well look to the eclipse as divine. In one Pagan wedding in the UK the couple decided to have their ceremony during an eclipse in which they believed that “there’s sun god and a moon goddess inside everyone, and that an eclipse represents the man and the woman together,” and during the celebration some wore masks of the Sun, others of the Moon, to symbolize the astronomical encounter. And just as Muslims are commanded to do, Druid Simon Michel said:
“We all turned to look in the direction of the sun and we could see a V-shaped shadow of the moon moving across the moor.” (34)
Cunningham writes that in the days of old:
“the God was the Sky Father, and the Goddess, the Earth Mother. The God of the sky […] descended upon and united with the Goddess, spreading seed upon the
land, celebrating her fertility.” (35)
Much like Allah pre-Islam was the phallus god who impregnated Allat, the earth goddess.
Even in Hinduism, like pre-Christian Arabia and Mesoamerica and Europe, the sky god Dyaus Pita, who is described as the “bull of earth” (36) is like Sin who became Allah depicted as a bull. This bull impregnates the earth goddess, Prithivi, with rain, causing crops to grow on her. (37)
Tonatiuh was the sun god worshiped by the Aztec people whose name means “he who goes forth shining.”(38) He too provided fertility to the earth making crops grow (39) and similar to Allah, Tonatiuh was a warrior god who escorted the souls of men who died while fighting for his cause to paradise and became an “eagle’s companion.” (40) Warriors for Tonatiuh would capture people in order to sacrifice them to him (41) this echoes greatly to how Muslims capture innocents and sacrifice them by decapitation to Allah.
The Greek goddess Aphrodite, who is popular for worship amongst neo-pagans, was worshiped by the Greeks, according to Aeschylus, as an earth goddess who is impregnated by the heavens:
“The holy heaven yearns to wound the earth, and yearning layeth hold on the earth to join in wedlock; the rain, fallen from the amorous heaven, impregnates the earth, and it bringeth forth for mankind the food for flocks and herds and Demeter’s gifts; and from that moist marriage-rite the woods put on their bloom. Of all these things I [Aphrodite] am the cause.” (42)
This is what Al Gore wants us to worship. Aphrodite was Greek for “Venus” which is the same planet Muslims look up to every Ramadan when the crescent moon appears with Venus (morning star), which is the symbol of the Luminous One as referenced by Isaiah-14 Hilal bin Sahar.
Aphrodite also represents the black asteroid within the Kaaba that Muslims go around seven times in Mecca that originated from a pagan vulva worship cult. The frame housing the black stone is built in the shape of a vulva. Overall, the entire idol, asteroid and all, represents the goddess Aphrodite. John of Damascus said that the Black Stone had traces of the head “of the Semitic Venus (i.e. the Greek Aphrodite).” (43)
Even Islam’s cry “Allah-u-Akbar” is nothing new. In the ninth century, Nicetas also spoke of the “idol of Xoubar” as representing Aphrodite. (44) John Tolan wrote that the eighth-century Byzantine writer, Georges the Monk, said that Muslims worshiped “god…the moon and Aphrodite.” (45) Constantine Porphyrogenitus’ book, The Administration of the Empire read that “Muslims pray also to the star of Aphrodite which they called Koubar, and in their supplication cry out ‘Allah Oua Koubar’, that is God and Aphrodite. They call God ‘Alla’; and Oua they use for the conjunction and they call the star Koubar. And so they say Alla Oua Koubar.” (46) Allah’s wife, Allat, according to Herodotus, was worshiped as Aphrodite:
“They believe in no other gods except Dionysus and the Heavenly Aphrodite; and they say that they wear their hair as Dionysus does his, cutting it round the head and shaving the temples. They call Dionysus, Orotalt; and Aphrodite, Alilat.” (47)
Today what we see when Arabs roam roundabout the Ka’ba in Arabia shaved, half naked is a throwback to pre-Islamic Arabia since Allat was a goddess of sexuality Arabs walked around the Kaaba naked.
Ibn Ishaq writes:
“An Arab woman was going around the house thus [nearly naked] said: Today, some or all of it [privates] can be seen, but what can be seen I do not make common property.” (48)
The original idea of kissing the black stone during the hajj was paganistic and sexual in origin. John of Damascus reported that: “rubbing and kissing [the Black Stone] … was extremely passionate.” One of the primary reasons why the Muslims accepted the Black Stone was that they believed that “Abraham had sexual intercourse with Hagar on it.” (49)
Nothing is new under the sun. Even Islam’s heaven stems from the Zoroastrians and the Hindus. According to historian W. St. Clair Tisdall:
“the books of the Zoroastrians and Hindus… bear the most extraordinary likeness to what we find in the Koran and Hadith. Thus in Paradise we are told of ‘houris having fine black eyes,’ and again of ‘houris with large black eyes, resembling pearls hidden in their shells.’… The name houry too is derived from an Avesta or Pehlavi Source, as well as jinn for genii, and bihisht (Paradise), signifying in Avestic ‘the better land.’ We also have very similar tales in the old Hindu writings, of heavenly regions with their boys and girls resembling the houris and ghilman (young boys) of the Koran.” (50)
The Koran states that Allah “is the lord of Sirius” (Koran 53:49) just as the Zoroastrian angel Tishtrya is the angel (Yazad) of the star Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky. The angel was worshiped as “the bright and glorious star [Sirius] who is the seed of the waters, powerful, tall, and strong, whose light goes afar; powerful and highly working, through whom the brightness and the seed of the waters come from the high Apam Napa.” (51) And similar to Islam:
“I swear by the heaven and the comer by night; and what will make you know what the comer by night is? The star of piercing brightness; there is not a soul but over it is a keeper.” (Q 86:1- 4)
Describing Allah, the lord of Sirius, the Qur’ân states that:
“the likeness of Allah’s light is as a Lamp enclosed in Glass: the glass as it were a brilliant star: Lit from a blessed Tree, an Olive, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Allah doth guide whom He will to His Light: Allah doth set forth Parables for men: and Allah doth know all things.” (Q 24:35)
This is lucifer. From 1994 to 1997, the Order of the Solar Temple members who also referred to their deity as the lord of Sirius became so paranoid they began a series of mass suicides, which led to roughly 74 deaths. Farewell letters by members stated that they believed their deaths would be an escape from the “hypocrisies and oppression of this world.” Adding that they felt they were “moving on to Sirius.” (52) It is no wonder why the Muslim Mujahadeen focus on being killed in battle. Every letter that is read prior to a suicide attack has expressions of desire to depart the earth’s corruption to paradise in which lays the Kaaba that holds the black stone star.
Just as Aphrodite is Allah’s wife Allat, she was also Mithra(53) a Zoroastrian deity identified with the dawn and as “shining like the sun”(54). Islam also compares greatly with Zoroastrianism. Both accounts have references of ascension to heaven and descent to hell. Muhammad had his Isra and Miraj (ascension) story where a creature called al-buraq and the angel Taus Al-Malaeka escorted Muhammad to hell and than to heaven. While in hell Muhammad:
“saw people whose heads were being shattered, then every time they would return to their original state and be shattered again without delay. He said: O Jibril, who are these people?’ He replied: ‘These are the people whose heads were too heavy (on their pillows) to get up and fulfill the prescribed prayers.’ Then he saw a people who wore loincloths on the fronts and on their backs. They were roaming the way camels and sheep roam about. They were eating thistles and zaqqum – the fruit of a tree that grows in hell and whose fruit resembles the head of devils and white-hot coals and stones of Gehenna. He said: ‘Who are these, O Jibril?’ He replied: ‘These are the ones who did not meet the obligation of paying sadaqa from what they possessed, whereas Allah never kept anything from them.'” He also “saw a man swimming in a river of blood and he was being struck in his mouth with rocks which he then swallowed. The Prophet asked: ‘What is this, O Jibril?’ He replied: ‘This is what happens to those who eat usury.'”(55)
In Zoroastrianism, there is the story of Arda Viraf where the soul of a pious Dastur named Arda Viraf travels to heaven and to hell with the angel Adar and the divine messenger of Ahura Mazda Sraosha. During the trip, Arda saw:
“the souls of a man and a woman whose tongues were cut out. And I asked thus: ‘What sin was committed by these bodies, whose souls suffer so severe a punishment?’ Srosh the pious, and Adar the angel, said thus: ‘This is the soul of that wicked man and woman who, amongst the living, spoke much falsehood and profanity [or untruth], and deceived their own souls.'” Viraf saw people “who swallowed and voided, and again swallowed and voided. And I asked thus: ‘What souls are those of these?’ Srosh the pious, and Adar the angel, said thus: ‘These are the souls of those wicked who, in the world, believed not in the spirit, and they have been unthankful in the religion of the creator Ohrmazd. They have been doubtful of the happiness which is in heaven, and the torment which is in hell, and about the reality of the resurrection of the dead and the future body.'” (56)
Muhammad attained his vision through the communication with the luminous Taus Al-Malaeka, While Arda Viraf obtained his vision by remembering “the departed souls” and drinking “wine and narcotic” (57)
Islam’s link with Zoroastrian astrology can be detected from the Qur’ân itself. In Quran sura Al-Burj “Zodiacal Signs” Allah declares: “[I swear] By the sky, (displaying) the Zodiacal Signs;” (Q 85:1) and in Quran surat Al-hijr “the stone-land” or “rock city” Allah declares:
“And we have placed in the sky the signs of the zodiac, and have made them seemly to the beholders; and we have guarded them from every pelted devil; save from such as steal a hearing, and there follows him an obvious shooting-star.” (58)
In Arabian Astrology, we find the Zodiac signs Libra Meezan (balance) Al-Burj Zodiac (59) the Qur’ân declares:
“Blessed be He who hath placed in the Heaven the sign of the Zodiac! who hath placed in it the Lamp of the Sun, and the light-giving Moon!” (Q 25:61)
Such signs are even the names of the Qur’ânic chapters—The Balance, The Zodiac, The Star, The Sun, The Moon, The Dawn, The Morning Star, The Solace, The Day Break, The Jinn (Demons)…
In the Zoroastrian Pahlavi text it reads that the god:
“Aûharmazd produced illumination between the sky and the earth, the constellation stars and those also not of the constellations, then the moon, and afterwards the sun, as I shall relate. First he produced, the celestial sphere, and the constellation stars are assigned to it by him; especially these twelve whose names are Varak (the Lamb), Tôrâ (the Bull), Dô-patkar (the Two-figures or Gemini), Kalakang (the Crab), Sêr (the Lion), Khûsak (Virgo), Tarâzûk (the Balance), Gazdûm (the Scorpion), Nîmâsp (the Centaur or Sagittarius), Vahîk 1 (Capricornus), Dûl (the Waterpot), and Mâhîk (the Fish);” (60)
Babylonian mythology also preaches a story of a creation of astrology:
“He (i.e. Marduk) made the stations for the great gods; The stars, their images, as the stars of the Zodiac, he fixed. He ordained the year and into sections he divided it; For the twelve months he fixed three stars. After he had […] the days of the year […] images, He founded the station of Nibir to determine their bounds; that none might err or go astray, He set the station of Bêl and Ea along with him. He opened great gates on both sides. He made strong the bolt on the left and on the right. In the midst thereof he fixed the zenith; The Moon-god he caused to shine forth, the night he entrusted to him…” (61)
We will never find any prophet in the Bible that has ever been inspired through The Luminous One while both Muhammad and even Joseph Smith admitted:
“…some revelations are of God; some revelations are of man; and some revelations are of the devil.”(62)
But the whole idea lucifer had was to rule the earth. The Quran says “the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle” (63) Muhammad is a man who has elevated himself to a position worthy only of God. Nazis worshiped Hitler, Communists in Russia worshipped Stalin, Evolutionists of all sort worshipped nature, New Agers worship self “I am God”—it never fails, something or someone is always worshipped and in every experiment that eliminated Yahweh, the result was tyranny.
ISLAM OPENLY HONORS DEMONS
Islam worships lucifer. To prove this, perhaps its time to shower a litany of verses. The Quran says:
“seek refuge with [Allah] the Lord of the Dawn from the mischief of the evil he created…the mischievous evil of Darkness, as it becomes intensely dark.”(Q 113:1-3)
“the lord of men and jinn [demons].” (Q 69:43)
“I only created jinn [demons] and man to worship me.” (Q 51:56)
The demons are even said to have been amazed with the Qur’an:
“We [the Demons] have heard a most amazing recitation.” (Q 72)
In Islam, the demons can even be Muslim:
“So, since we (jinn/demons) have listened to the guidance (of the Qur’ân), we have accepted (Islam): and any who believes in its lord (Allah) has no fear of loss, force, or oppression.” (Q 72:13)
In the Quran Allah swears:
“by those (demons) who violently tear out (the souls), and drag them to destruction.” (Q 79:1)
The biblical God is not the lord of demons!
Similarly, the Babylonian moon-god Sin is the Lord of darkness (64). Buddhism also honors demons. Nichiren Daishonin, a Buddhist monk and major teacher of Japanese Buddhism said that good demons:
“feed upon enemies of the Lotus Sutra, while evil demons feed upon the sutra’s votaries.” (65)
According to Buddhist writings, Buddha made a sermon and while he was preaching “monks, nuns…lay devotees, … great serpents, men, and beings not human, as well as governors of a region, rulers of armies and rulers of four continents, all of them with their followers, gaze on the Lord [Buddha] in astonishment, in amazement, in ecstasy.” (66)
Demons in Buddhism like the Qur’ân depicts them as “struck with astonishment” (67) Buddha, like Allah, is referred to as “the lord of the world” (68) similar to Allah is referred to in the Qur’ân as Malek-rab-Al- A’lameen means “The Lord of the worlds” that is, this world, and the underworld:
“O Allah, the Lord of the seven heavens and whatever it shadows. Lord of the two worlds and whatever it is carrying. Lord of the wind and wherever it goes. Lord of the devils and whoever is unguided. I ask you all the good blessings in this country and the best of its people and the best of whatever it has. I seek refuge from all the evils of this country, the worst of its people and the worst of what it has.” (69)
In Ibn Ishaq’s classic Biography of Mohammed, we find an account of Mohammed praying to his lord:
“O Allah, Lord of the heavens and what they overshadow, and Lord of the Devils and what into error they throw, and Lord of the winds and what they winnow, we ask Thee for the booty of this town and its people. We take refuge in Thee.”
And while Muslims claim to worship no man, Mohammed carries the same attributes as Allah, especially when they views this:
“Mohammed is the exemplar to both worlds, the guide of the descendants of Adam. He is the sun of creation, the moon of the celestial spheres, the all seeing eye; the torch of knowledge, the candle of prophecy, the lamp of the nation and the way of the people; the commander-in-chief on the parade-ground of the Law; the general of the army of mysteries and morals; The lord of the world and the glory of ‘But for thee;’ ruler of the earth and of the celestial spheres.” (70)
“He, and only he, is without question the most excellent of mankind; he and only he, is the confidant of God. The seven heavens and the eight gardens of paradise were created for him. He is both the eye and the light in the light of our eyes. He was the key of guidance to the two worlds and the lamp that dispelled the darkness thereof.” (71)
Allah is even claimed to be the Lord of the demons (Jinn in Arabic):
“This is a Message sent down from the Lord of men and jinn (demons)” (Q 69:43)
“I [Allah] only created jinn (demons) and man to worship me” (Q 51:56).
It matters not if Muslims and Mormons say they uphold Christ. In Mormonism, Joseph Smith delved into the demon Abraxes.(72) The Basilidian sect of the Gnostics of the second century claimed Abraxas as their supreme god, and said that Jesus Christ was only a phantom sent to earth by him. Finally, Lucy mentions the “faculty of Abrac,” which refers to the deity regarded by the second-century Basilidians as the “chief of the 365 genies ruling the days of the year.” (73)
Allah is also called the lord of genies. In the Latter Day Saints movement, the use of seer stones and divination played a significant role in shaping the movement’s history and theology. Seer stones and crystals Urim and Thummim are of a particular importance to Joseph Smith; it was these objects that helped discover the words of the Book of Mormon.(74) Using seer stones (sometimes called “peep” stones) is the act of “scrying” or “crystal gazing.” Scrying has been used in many cultures as a means of seeing the past, present, or future; in this sense scrying constitutes a form of divination or fortunetelling. (75) Scrying can go as back as 2,000 BC in Greece, as well as ancient Britain and its subsequent Celtic population, where they practiced many forms of scrying. The mediums often used were beryl, crystal, black glass, polished quartz, water, and other transparent or light-catching bodies. (76)
MUHAMMAD EVEN ADMITS TO BEING POSSESSED
In one story Muhammad even asks one of his companions “Which of you will follow me to a deputation of the jinn tonight?” (77) Another incident regarding the money keeper is told in Muslim annals in which The Luminous One infiltrated the money coffers and “started stealing food.” He was caught. The treasury keeper threatened to turn in Satan to Muhammad, Islam’s apostle. Satan in exchange for his release began to teach the money keeper Ayat Al-Kursi (Koran 2:255) which is the recitation Muslims use for protection from evil. When the story reached the prophet of Islam he said, ‘He who came to you at night told you the truth although he is a liar; and it was Satan.'” (78)
“Magic was worked on Allah’s apostle so that he used to think that he had sexual relations with his wives while he actually had not. (79)
According to the Islamic scholar Alfred Guillaume, Muhammad’s:
“inspiration and religious experiences are remarkably similar to those found in some form of spiritism. Shamanism, for example is notorious for fostering periods of mental disruption as well as spirit- possession. Significantly, Muhammad experienced Shaman-like encounters.”(80)
According to Alfred Guillaum a Sahir was a “man with a mysterious esteoric knowledge which was generally attributed to a familiar spirit called a jinn or shaytan[devil].”(81) Sahirs were considered wizards who “believed in the demon of poetry, and they thought that a great poet was directly inspired by demons.”(82)
Hasan ibn Thabit, a fellow poet and close friend of Muhammad, and one who praised him in his poetry, communicated with a female jinn who inspired his poetry “met him in one of the streets of Medina, leaped upon him and pressed him down.” Jinns were considered “his brothers” who “weave for him artistic words…sent down to him from heaven in the night season.” To “send down” messages is even the same usage in Muhammad’s account in which the Qur’ân was transmitted through The Luminous One Islam claims as Gabriel, and “as Hassan was thrown down by the female spirit and had verses pressed out of him.
So the first utterances of prophecy were pressed from Mohammed by the luminous angel. The resemblances even go further, the angel Gabriel is spoken of as the qarin ‘companion’ of Muhammad, just as though he were the Jinni accompanying a poet, and the same word, nafatha, ‘blow upon,’ is used of an enchanter, of a Jinni inspiring a poet.” (83)
Even Mohammed himself at first believed that he was demon possessed and became distraught, even suicidal:
“So I [Mohammed] read it, and he [Jibril] departed from me. And I awoke from my sleep, and it was as though these words were written on my heart…thought, ‘Woe is me poet or possessed…I will go to the top of the mountain and throw myself down that I may kill myself and gain rest.’ So I went forth to do so and then when I was midway on the mountain, I heard a voice from heaven saying, O Mohammed! Thou are the apostle of God and I am Gabriel.’”(84)
THE QURAN CAUSES DEMON POSSESSION
Muhammad wasn’t the only possessed poet. The infamous anti-war activist Alan Ginsberg a drug addict that boasted about his homosexuality and his attraction to young boys. In his most famous poem, Howl, Ginsberg writes about a chilling visitation from a ‘god’ who he describes as “Moloch” (possibly better described as “Baal Moloch”.
In Howl Ginsberg writes:
“angel-headed hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night…and saw Mohammedan angels staggering on tenement roofs illuminated …Moloch who frightened me out of my natural ecstasy!…Wake up in Moloch! Light streaming out of the sky!” (85)
Another beat poet and friend of Ginsberg, Philip Lamantia, had a similar experience:
“when reading the Koran on a couch, one night, I was suddenly physically laid out by a powerful force beyond my volition, which rendered me almost comatose…I felt a radiance beyond even further within it and so, suddenly the outline of a benign bearded Face appeared to whom I addressed my desire to remain in this marveland who calmly replied: “You can return, after you complete your work.”(86)
Aleister Crowley, the famous Satanist and like Muhammad communicated with an angel by the name of Aiwass who is described as “Horus the Child.” Crowley, like Muhammad described Aiwass as the “God or Demon” even was linking him to Sumer.(87) Aiwass later abandoned Crowley leading him into a state of depression.(88) Similarly, Muhammad’s holy guardian angel abandoned him leading Muhammad to attempt suicide.
Ibin Abbas records Muhammad’s account:
“[the] Divine Inspiration was also paused for a while and the Prophet became so sad as we have heard that he intended several times to throw himself from the tops of high mountains”(89)
Such suicide attempts are similar to what drug addicts suffer when going through withdrawals. Even from a young age Muhammad suffered from mania in the likes of a drug addict:
“At the same time, he was probably, more or less, throughout his whole career, the victim of certain amount of self-deception. A cataleptic subject from his early youth, born—according to the traditions—of a highly nervous and excitable mother, he would be peculiarly liable to morbid and fantastic hallucinations, and alterations of excitement and depression, which would win for him, in the eyes of his ignorant countrymen, the credit of being inspired.”(90)
When Muhammad described how al-Buraq ascended him to the heavens after the spirit cut him open. “I was taken by Gabriel set out with me till we reached the nearest heaven.”(91)
Shaman priests go through similar trances and fall asleep for days then cut into pieces by the spirits. Mongols and the Manchu-Tungus, still initiate the shaman and introduce him to the supernatural beings, and he symbolically ascends the “tree-up-to-the-heavens.”(92)
Muhammad ascended to the heavens much like Shaman priests and Zoroastrian Arda Viraf did after taking narcotics.
Joseph Smith in his first vision was “chosen” to receive certain secrets from an “angel of light.” But before this episode took place, he was determined to know which of the many religions he should join. He questioned himself “If any one of them be right which is it? And how shall I know it?”(93)
Like Muhammad who secluded himself in Ghar Hira, early one morning in the spring of 1820, Joseph attended secluded woods (Today named “The Sacred Grove”) to ask God which church he should join. “A darkness gathered around him, and Smith believed that he would soon be totally destroyed…a light brighter than the sun descended towards him. With the arrival of the light. Then some power seized him and bind his tongue so that he could not speak.”(94)
The tyrant of Iran, president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad like Smith claimed that he saw a “bright light surrounding him” while he was speaking in a speech for the UN General Assembly in September 14, 2005. According to Ahmadinejad a U.N. member had told him that he saw a bright light surrounding him. Ahmadinejad stated in a video interview:
“I felt it myself. I felt that the atmosphere suddenly changed, and for those 27 or 28 minutes, all the leaders of the world did not blink. When I say they didn’t move an eyelid, I’m not exaggerating. They were looking as if a hand was holding them there, and had just opened their eyes to the message of the Islamic Republic.” (95)
Such are the Antichrists. Scripture states in Ephesians 5:11 “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.”

1 Narrated by ibn Abbas also by Tirmidhi: “The messenger of Allah concerning the stone said: ‘Allah will bring it forth on the day of resurrection, and it will have two eyes with which it will see and a tongue with which it will speak, and it will testify in favor of those who touched it sincerity.” Al-Tirmidhi notes that many years ago, the Black Stone was, “whiter than milk; it was only later that it became black as it absorbed the sins of those who touched it.”
The blasphemy doesn’t stop here. The Black Rock, the image of Satan, the Fallen Star, which attempts to take the place of Christ the Great Redeemer is called by Mohammed, the son of perdition Yameen Allah. This means that it is “the right hand of Allah” with which “he touches his servants.” It is the visible right hand of the invisible Allah. See The Story of The Black Stone and Muhammad son of Abdullah. IslamOnline.net Various Aspects of Haj
It is even the Shekina Glory, which dwells in all believers. Venerating it and rotating seven times around it will cleanse the Muslim of all prior sins.
The veneration of Satan through this act of rotating around an idol image is even alluded to in the Bible and rarely understood by Western Analysts. Ezekiel 31:3 declares: “Behold, the Assyrian (the Antichrist, Satan in the Flesh) was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of a high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs. The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with her rivers run- ning round about his plants, and sent out her little rivers unto all the trees of the field.”

78 Bukhari: Verse 6, Book 61, N530
79 Bukhari:V7B71N660: The Hadith continues, “That is the hardest kind of magic as it has such an effect.. One day he said, ‘O Aisha, do you know that Allah has instructed me concerning the matter I asked Him about? Two men came to me and one of them sat near my head and the other near my feet. The one asked, ‘What is wrong with this man?’ ‘He is under the effect of magic.’ ‘Who cast the magic spell on him?’ ‘Labid, an Arab ally of the Jews and a hypocrite.’ ‘What material did he use to cast the spell?’ ‘A comb with hair stuck to it.’ ‘Where is that comb and hair?’ ‘In a skin of pollen of a male palm tree kept under a stone in the well of Dharwan.’ So the Prophet went to that well and took out those things, saying, ‘That was the well shown to me in the dream. Its water looked red and its palms looked like the heads of devils. My companions removed those things.’ I said, ‘Why didn’t you just treat yourself?’ He said, ‘Allah has cured me, and I don’t want to spread evil among my people.'”
