Now that numerous nations are firmly under Islamic control in the Middle East and Europe, the Muslim leaders are becoming much bolder to announce their further future intentions. In short the program is not only to conquer and subjugate Israel. It is also to see a new worldwide Islamic Caliphate established, for which Jerusalem would become the capital city. The fanatical elements of modern Islam now believe that a dream that many Muslims have cherished for centuries, can finally be realized. It is a dream in which Islam would dominate the whole world under a new Islamic Caliphate, bringing the whole world under total subjection to Sharia law. In the End Time plans of Islam, the first essential step towards the arrival of the great Caliphate is the complete conquest of Israel and Jerusalem. An Islamic Caliphate is the equivalent of a kingdom. Many Muslims are now declaring that Jerusalem will be its capital city. Israel is currently the first line of defense in a war that Islam believes will ultimately bring the whole world under Islamic control. This dream can only be terminated by a supernatural victory that Yahweh Sabaoth will achieve for Israel.
It is high time that the Western world woke up to this extremely serious threat and began to take appropriate action to stem this tide that would inevitably overtake them if it is not halted. The main thing that the West needs to realize is the spiritual nature of what is transpiring. The current Western war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan are obviously failing miserably. The Western alliance, after spending billions of dollars and losing thousands of lives, are now busily engaged in making hasty plans to withdraw. As soon as the withdrawals are achieved, conditions will revert to what they were initially only worse. The warfare that must take place is spiritual warfare that will involve the Western nations earnestly repenting and seeking God for a true spiritual renewal.
There has never been a day when modern Israel is at so much risk. The danger they face from every direction is far worse than the six day war in 1967. The threat stems from the current rise of radical Islam and its fresh determination to establish a new Caliphate with Jerusalem as its capital city. Although such a Caliphate has long been the dream of radical Islamists, it is only in recent times that they have openly declared that the dream can now be realized. Recent drastic changes in Iran have given Muslims cause to believe that the dream can finally be achieved. We have been focusing recently on the attack that will soon be launched on Israel and Jerusalem, vividly depicted especially in Psalm 83 and Zechariah 12 and mentioned in numerous other parts of the Bible. We need to ask “What is the ultimate objective of this attack?” I believe that in the Islamic mind, it is the all important step towards a world under Muslim rule.
1 O God, don’t sit idly by, silent and inactive!
2 Don’t you hear the tumult of your enemies? Don’t you see what your arrogant enemies are doing?
3 They devise crafty schemes against your people, laying plans against your precious ones.
4 “Come,” they say, “let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence.”
5 This was their unanimous decision. They signed a treaty as allies against you
The “New Caliphate” which fanatical Islam is so urgently determined to establish, is the Muslim alternative to the Judeo/Christian Kingdom of God over which the true Messiah will reign. It is in fact the Anti-Christ kingdom. The imminent attack on Israel, so vividly described in Psalm 83 and Zechariah 12, is a critical stage in the plan to establish the New Islamic Caliphate that is meant to initially rule the Middle East and subsequently the whole world. Many Islamic leaders around the world are now talking openly and boldly about the imminent fulfillment of this dream. Presently Israel is the world’s first line of defense against this sinister aim, which would eventually have a profoundly ominous negative effect on every nation of the world. One part of that effect would be the total banning of Judaism, Christianity and all world religions other than Islam. The Caliphate would then seek to ultimately introduce radical Shariah law across the whole earth. What should every Bible believing person do in the face of this threatened onslaught?
It is an extremely alarming fact that a major portion of the world’s population today has no awareness whatsoever of what constitutes the “New Caliphate” or of what it could mean for the whole world if the New Caliphate was successfully established. It is particularly frightening that the universal Church and a vast number of people who claim to be part of the Church, also possess very little if any understanding about the planned New Caliphate. Many extremely influential people around much of our world today are becoming part of the thrust to make Islam the religious/political ruler of the world with its headquarters in the city of Jerusalem.
