The world is attempting to appease Islam by passing laws to protect anyone from criticizing any aspect of the religion. At the same time, the world seems to have given them permission to attack Jews and Christians. All over Europe, leaders within the European Union are asking Jews to stop wearing the Jewish head covering, or any other Jewish symbol. At the same time, radical Muslims are attacking Christians who are wearing a crucifix. The message is loud and clear. Don’t offend Muslims while they plan to attack you and kill you. We are living in times of great spiritual darkness!
Since the beginning of the religion of Islam, there has been an open attack upon the cross, the very symbol that recognizes the Christian faith and salvation. Several sources indicate that this was the teaching and practice of Muhammad, the founding prophet of Islam. For centuries, Muslims have been breaking crosses and destroying churches across the Middle East and Europe. Muslims do not believe that Jesus is the Son of God and teach that Judas, not Jesus, died on a cross.
As Islam continues to grow in numbers and acceptance, it is a clear sign that the end of this age is approaching. Islam teaches that at the end, Jesus, who they call Issa, will return with the Islamic Messiah and destroy Christianity, breaking crosses, and killing Jews. This is in direct opposition to the message of the Bible. According to the Bible, the Antichrist (who will be a Muslim), and all those who join him in his attack upon Israel, will be killed by Jesus at Armageddon (Revelation 19:11-21).
This clearly reminds us that the Koran and the Bible are not the same. They have opposing messages. They cannot both be right. It also proves that the god of Islam, Allah, is not the God of the Bible, who calls Himself “the Holy One of Israel.” The final war at the end of this age will be the god of Ishmael (Islam) against the God of Isaac (Israel). The stage is set and the players are marching to the beat of hatred that will drive them to Armageddon.
Archeologists in Israel just discovered a clay seal buried 40 feet below a parking lot in Jerusalem. This tiny seal bears the name of one of King Josiah’s servants, Natan L’Melech, mentioned in 2 Kings 23:11. These stunning discoveries are becoming more common in recent years. Now, more than 54 names in the Bible have been discovered on objects by archeologists in Israel. Our God is graciously sending a message to all of Israel and the world that the Bible is historically accurate. This also proves that the Jewish people were in their land long before the Palestinians. All of this is bad news for those who claim that the Bible is a book of fairy tales.
There is no people group on the face of the earth that loves their land like the Israelis. The land of Israel is a part of their Jewish birthright, history, and heart. It is a vital part of who they are. It goes much deeper than feelings of patriotism. In a unique way, God has united the Jewish heart and the land of Israel. In Isaiah 62:4, the land is called “Beulah,” which is Hebrew for “married.” Going all the way back to the Abrahamic covenant 4,000 years ago, God married the Jewish people to the Promised Land. Speaking of the Jew and the land, God said, “For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee” (Isaiah 62:5).
This bond between the Jew and his land is perfectly illustrated with the recent return of the remains of an Israeli who was killed in action 37 years ago in southern Lebanon. On April 4, 2019, Sergeant First Class Zachary Baumel was laid to rest in the prestigious military cemetery on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem. In remarks at her brother’s committal, Osan Haberman said, “All of our prayers during these 37 years went to one place and we’re here. I thought about what I would do here in this place. I can’t even embrace you. So I thought to turn to the ground and ask the land to embrace you. After a few minutes I understood that I don’t even need to ask. The land embraces you so strongly. And why? Because there is absolute love between the son that gave everything for the land and the land itself, and there is a perfect union here. You are together now.”
When people attempt to separate the Jewish people from the land God has given to them, they are wrestling with God. They are attempting to divide what God is united. God has married the Jew to the land. “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder” (Mathew 19:6).
Israel Today reports that “according to the 2019 edition of the Bloomberg Healthiest Country Index, which ranks 169 countries according to factors that contribute to overall health. Israel is 25 spots ahead of the United States.” Israel is the 10th healthiest nation in the world. (www.israeltoday.co.il)
Israel continues to be the land that flows with milk and honey. In Ezekiel 20:6, the Bible speaks of the land of Israel as a land “flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands.” Israel is one of the few countries in the world that provides its citizens with all the food they eat. They import very little. I know from my tours that the food in Israel is fresh, delicious, tasty, and prepared by Israeli chefs in the hotels where we stay. They also provide us with an incredible variety of foods at each meal.
Living in a World with No Conscience is a hard-hitting, passionate presentation of the true spiritual condition of our nation and world — all through the lens of the Bible. Author Mike Wingfield attempts to demonstrate that America and our world are extremely close to reaching the spiritual point of no return that is leading to the final global divine judgment prescribed in the Bible. At the heart of this is the silencing of the collective conscience of our nation and world. God has warned, “My spirit will not always strive with man” (Genesis 6:3). What does this mean? What do we need to do? Living in a World with No Conscience will help you discover the vital answers to these questions.
Those who do not know Jesus Christ are oblivious to where we are and what is about to transpire in the world — and an overwhelming number of believers, including pastors, do not grasp the gravity of what is taking place in the American and in the global culture. Living in a World with No Conscience can help us to see our world as God sees it, and provide us with a much needed wake-up call!
