Islam as a Means of Satanic Influence


The Devil has been working to turn us humans away from God since the very beginning. It was, after all, Satan who tempted Eve with the apple and caused the expulsion from the Garden of Eden and the stain of original sin. When Christ came, Satan even tried to tempt Him. He was unsuccessful, and Christ fulfilled his purpose on this earth. He was crucified for our sins and rose from the dead, giving us all hope and assurance of our own eventual conquering of death. Then the Christian faith, the fulfillment of the Hebrew prophecy began to spread around the globe. That was most unwelcome news for the Devil, as it means more souls turn to God. It did not stop his efforts to wreak havoc on earth and destroy humans.

 The Christian Faith was and is a serious threat to the Devil's efforts. As anyone who has read the Bible ought to know, the good news is that we will win in the end. That doesn't stop the Devil from trying to destroy the souls of as many people as he can in the meantime.

Now, faced with the rapid growth of the Christian Faith and all its saving grace that it brings to people around the world, what's the Devil to do? A common advertising technique is to make your product look similar to another product that people like. It makes the transition to your product easier, and perhaps even some people would be fooled into buying your product instead of the other product that they originally wanted. This was a logical thing for the Devil to do. All the Devil needed to do was to enter the heart of the false prophet Muhammad and persuade him to deny the Godhead of Christ, deny the resurrection, and create a religion founded on the basis of Judaism and Christianity. Then make that religion built on intolerance and the subjugation, domination, or death of all who are not of that religion. Then seek converts in largely Christian areas, getting them to deny the resurrection and the Godhead of Jesus Christ and submit completely to the Devil while telling them they are worshipping the God of Abraham. This is Islam.

The Islamic religion was a heresy off of Christianity. This heresy, which has had such broad-reaching, profound, violent effects for so long can only be a work engineered by our old enemy the Devil. It has his handwriting all over it. There was the Muslim take-over of the Holy Land, continuing to the Muslim-generated hatred and violence  in the Holy Land today. There are church bombings and attacks on Christians by Muslims in Israel. There were numerous criminal terrorist attacks on airplanes and trains. And, of course, there were the attacks of September 11th on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. It is no wonder that Muslims would attack the bastion of religious freedom and tolerance in the world, as they are fundamentally opposed to such a notion. They wish to dominate and turn all to their ways. This is their religion and their purpose.

And then there is the oppression of people, particularly women, in Muslim nations. This is particularly noticed in places like Afghanistan under Taliban rule, Pakistan, and others. Ataturk had the great sense to put severe limits on Islamic influence and expression when he founded the Turkish Republic. However, today we see a new resurgence of Islamic influence in that country. Right this very moment, Islamic extremists are trying very hard to have a significant if not dominant voice in Egyptian politics. In the United States, Muslims are attempting to instill Sharia law or at least be able to carry out criminal acts such as honor killings under Sharia law, despite the violation of the rights of others. Wherever Muslims take over, freedom of religion and freedom in general decline, while instability and oppression rise.

The Muslims are certainly adept at doing Satan's work. They infiltrate slowly, usually under the guise of being a minority and wanting to be able to fulfill their "religious obligations." Once they have this, they want more. And then more and more and more. This grows as their numbers grow. Next, latent Muslims are encouraged to participate more actively, and like a bacterial colony, it eventually grows out of control. They demand their right to say and do as they please according to their religion, but demand that others who are opposed to them be silenced. Ironically, but not surprisingly, they seek to deny others the very rights that they demanded for themselves. Usually those who kindly supported the Muslims' right to freedom of religion are blind at first to what is going on. Often by the time they find out, it is too late and the take-over has already taken root so much that there is not much that can be done about it.

The goal of spiritual warfare should be a return to
God and a return to the serenity that He brings.

The Devil's handiwork of the Islamic religion ought to be plain for all to see. Satan uses his creation to draw Christians from the true faith, to torment and oppress, and to create and perpetuate chaos in the world. It is a religion of intolerance, hatred, and violence; all common tools of the Devil. Even those who are not "militant extremist Muslims" are part of the problem. They inspire the criminal acts through their devotion and their numbers, even if these so-called moderate or "peaceful" Muslims later denounce the terrorist and other criminal acts of the militant Muslims. We should and must pray intensely for the conversion of Muslims back to the true faith. This is a time of great need for spiritual warfare. We must pray like we have never prayed before that Muslims will turn from the Devil and return to God.
