Posted on 12/09/2012 7:26:52 AM PST by Katechon
When, by an act of its own free will, it rejected the truth that it knew about God, satan became the cosmic "liar and the father of lies." For this reason, it lives in radical and irreversible denial of God and seeks to impose its own tragic "lie about the good" that is God.
-- John Paul II
Socialists and members of the Muslim Brotherhood are infiltrating Washington D.C. in order to loot the treasury and establish a totalitarian state, while socialists and homosexuals have infiltrated the Church long ago so as to drag as many folks as possible into hell with them.
What do totalitarian socialists and muslims have in common, besides being homosexuals? They declared war on the Jewish people, and they are denying the Incarnation of Our Lord. In short, they are tools of satan.
Why does satan hate the Jewish people? Because they have a Covenant with God.
Remember folks: the fundamental premise of the Jewish people is divine election. The Jewish people does not constitute a 'race'; there are Jews of all pigmentations. The Jewish people is the people elected by God, in virtue of the Abrahamic Covenant.
In that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying: 'Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates; the Kenite, and the Kenizzite, and the Kadmonite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Rephaim, and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Girgashite, and the Jebusite.'
-- Genesis 15:1821
Before the Covenant was concluded, God had requested of Abraham: 'Take now thy son, thine only son, whom thou lovest, even Isaac, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of." Abraham saddled up his donkey, split wood for the sacrifice, and took his son to Mount Moriah. There, with cleaver poised for slaughter, Abrahams hand is stayed by one of Gods messengers. "Lay not thy hand upon the lad," the angel called out from the heavens, "neither do thou any thing unto him; for now I know that thou art a God-fearing man, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son, from Me."
Abraham looked around to see a ram caught in a thicket by its horns; he sacrificed the ram in Isaacs place. The angel spoke again: By Myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son, that in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast hearkened to My voice.
Abraham had two sons with two different women. His eldest son was Ishmael, by Hagar, the slave of his wife Sarah. His other son was Isaac, by Sarah. At the time of the Covenant, Ishmael had been gone long ago.
Expulsion of Ishmael and his slave-mother, Hagar
When Sarah saw Ishmael mocking her son Isaac, she insisted that Abraham cast him out and his mother. Abraham yielded. According to rabbinical literature, Ishmael was about to die of thirst when God commanded an angel to show Hagar the well which was created on Friday in the week of Creation. But this was protested against by an angel, who said: "Why should Ishmael have water, since his descendants will destroy the Israelites by thirst?". God replied: "But now he is innocent, and I judge him according to what he is now".
According to muslim mythology, Ishmael's son Qedar, is an ancestor of Mohammed. His posterity became pagan until they were brought to islam by mohammed. Ishmael was allegedly buried near the Kaaba, in Mecca.
The muslims say that Ishmael revealed a well by hitting the ground with his heel. They locate this well, the Zamzam well, a few metres from the Kaaba.
The Kaaba (cube) is a building made of granite, with a mosque built around it, the Masjid al-Haram (the so-called "Sacred Mosque"), in the center of Mecca.
Within the the Kaaba, there is a black stone (الحجر الأسود, al-Ḥajar al-Aswad), a relics of pre-islamic times when allah, the moon-god, was worshipped. The muslims believe that the black stone is a remnant of the first construction of the Kaaba, the first house built to worship allah, believed to have been undertaken by Abraham and Ishmael. Muhammad allegedly set the black stone into the Kaaba's actual wall. It is now cemented in the side of the big black cube.
Both Ishmael and Isaac were present at the burial of Abraham, their father.
According to rabbinical literature, Ishmael remained a savage. He turned his bow against Isaac. Judaism views Isaac rather than Ishmael as the actual heir of Abraham.
A few generations later, Moses was instructed to build the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark, containing the original tablets of the Ten Commandments, was kept in a tent called the Tabernacle.
At the beginning of his reign, King David put the Ark in the tabernacle he had prepared for it in Jerusalem. His plan of building a temple for the Ark was stopped. But his son, Salomon, did build a temple on top of Mount Moriah (also known as Mount Zion and Temple Mount), where God had established His Covenant with Abraham. A room named the Holy of Holies was prepared to host the Ark within Salomon's Temple, and the Ark was placed therein.
The location is the holiest site in Judaism and is the place Jews turn towards during prayer.
Then the Babylonians, lead by Nebuchadnezzar, destroyed Jerusalem and Solomon's Temple.
Among Sunni Muslims, Temple Mount is revered as Bayt al-Maqdis.
After the islamic conquest of Jerusalem in 637, Caliph Umar, of the Umayyad Caliphate, commissioned the construction of the al-Aqsa Mosque and of the Dome of the Rock on the Mount.
The Dome was completed in 692, which makes it the oldest islamic structure after the Kaaba. The al-Aqsa mosque rests on the southern side of the Mount, facing Mecca.
The Temple Mount remains to this day THE focal point of the islam-zionism conflict; each side claims sovereignty over it. The State of Israel controls the site since the Six-Day War of 1967.
The Islamic Conquest
A leading member of the Quraysh tribe (the tribe that was dominating Mecca), and a companion of muhammad, Umar succeeded Caliph Abu Bakr (632634) as the second Caliph.
Under Umar's rule, the Caliphate expanded, eventually ruling the whole Sassanid Persian Empire and two thirds of the Byzantine Empire.
The Caliphate endured until the Ottoman Caliphate was abolished in 1924, ending an imperium of almost 1300 years. Until the demise of the Ottoman Caliphate, the muslim world had remained aligned and united under a bay'ah (oath of allegiance) to muhammad, the mouth of allah.
After the abolishment of the Caliphate in 1924, the Muslim world lost its bay'ah to muhammad through the link of the Quraysh tribe's inheritance of the Ottomans. The reign of the caliphs, which began with Abu Bakr, then Umar, Uthman and Ali was finally destroyed.
Muslims believe that the Ark of the Covenant was secretly guarded by the first four Caliphs, who used its power to establish the Caliphate throughout the Middle East, including in Jerusalem. Ali's brother had allegedly retrieved the Ark from the Negus (ruler) of al-Habash (Ethiopia), and had it sent to Mecca to present it to muhammad.
Muhammad is reported to have granted the Ark to his son in-law, Ali, who then retrieved from it the Zulfiqar sword, the sword of muhammad. The muslims think that it was by the power of the Ark that Umar was able to expand the Caliphate to such an extent.
During the reign of Ali, the Ark would have been sent towards Turkey, with the Ottomans becoming the protectors of the lands wherein it was hidden.
Why Satan (allah) Hates the Jewish People and the Christian People
The Ten Commandments prohibits bloody violence and what causes that violence (coveting what belongs to thy neighbour).
Neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's wife; neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's house, his field, or his man-servant, or his maid-servant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's.
A man can desire what is rightfully his, but he should not covet what belongs to another, states the Law. Why not? Because it's the root of satanic violence. This desire is homicidal in principle; it paves the way to wanting to kill one's neighbor so as to take possession of his wealth. Underlying this desire is the insidious attempt to become at the image of the other.
Satan is a murderer in principle. It is destructive, and it tries to seduce us into becoming liars, thieves and murderers. That is why it is called the great tempter. It is almost impossible to totally renounce the satanic temptation, because the temptation accompanies humanity since the Fall of Man.
The amount of bloody, satanic violence within a community always ends up reaching a point where the community needs to find a victim, someone to sacrifice, to soothe its homicidal thirst. It's a way to re-unite everyone against a common victim, in order to put an end to the civil war, by consuming one victim. Cain killing Abel reveals the image of such a community united by a murder.
Abel had less motive to kill his brother Cain than his brother had to kill him because he vented some of his potential aggression against an animal surrogate, and thus God was pleased.
The ram Abel sacrificed probably saved Cains life.
Now remember Cains jealousy of his brothers favor with God, his impulsive slaying of Abel, and Gods forbearance. Cains sentence was to leave the soil he had tilled and wander the earth a restless vagabond. Cain complained to God that exile left him prey to the first stranger he meets. He knew that random violence was the norm outside of Gods sanctum. God responded by marking Cain, and by warning that the slayer of Cain is bound to suffer a vengeance seven times as severe. Cains mark is a sign of violence to come. The one who kills Cain will unleash a violence that should multiply sevenfold. And all the victims of that violence will be "Cains" in their own right, marked also by the desire for vengeance. I kill one of yours, you kill one of mine, another of mine kills another of yours, and so forth and so on, in infinite reactions. The alternative to this endless spiral of violence, the one Cain wanted for himself, is to stay in the presence of God. Cain could have done so with an offering of animal blood, yet he missed it.
The community however learned from Abel. Hence the construction of a set of processes that aim to harness the satanic spiral of violence towards a scapegoat -- a non-human, sacrificial victim, or a human victim who sinned -- such as the adulterous woman. In Judaism, it is satan that was stoned. Contrary to the muslims, the Jewish people do not practice stoning anymore. Its tradition can evolve because the judaic field has been bipolar since the Abrahamic Convenant. There is indeed a prescriptive element, the pole of the Law (Abraham's descendents by Hagar), AND a promissive element, the pole of the messianic community (Abraham's descendents by Sarah), animated mostly by the prophets.
Muslims view muhammed as the seal of the prophets because they think he *sealed* the line of prophets. They regard him as the last prophet, and so said the koran.
Islam comes only from the descendence of Hagar, the slave of Sarah. It has evacuated from its conception the promissive element of messianism, in order to promote a dictatorship of the dead, written Law. Inherently unable to ever evolve, islam is stucked in the VIIth century.
And by negating the promissive dimension of the Covenant, in order to retain only the prescriptive side, muslims -- much like pagans -- are doomed to sanctify the violence against any sacrificial victim -- by slandering the victim's reputation. They provide a framework that justifies and ritualizes the process by which the victim of an arbitrary violence is substituted to any other potential victim. The trick they use is to deem satan (or allah) as being "good" or "great" in order to let it free itself from this cycle of violence. Satan (allah) becomes a god through the sacrifice of innocent victims that are reputed 'guilty.'
Worshipping Moloch, islamic-style...
But there is a way to fight satan. The Christian way of neutralizing satanic violence is to recognize the possibility of the innocence of the victim. Here, satan is caught in its own trap: once the victim is found innocent (Christ returning from the dead), satan appears as the liar, the usurper, the forked-tongue accuser he really is. What is expelled by violence here is in fact the roots and the flowers of evil, i.e. satan. Christ, God sacrificed, acknowledged in His divinity, reveals the false slandering of the victim underlying human-sacrificial cults. The Cross denies satan any possibility of excluding itself from its own violence.
And that really pissed satan off. The Cross doomed the beast to self-destruction. Satan will eventually self-destruct into its own raging fire, its own furnace of rage.
This was revealed to Abraham and this revelation is kept alive by the messianic community within the Jewish people. This revelation confered power to the Ark.
It seems increasingly likely that islam is actually the revenge of satan against the Abrahamic Covenant, the Ten Commandments and the Cross.
Satan wants to enslave men, bring us down with him into an endless spiral of bloody violence. The fallen angel will do anything to exterminate the Jewish People, elected by God as the keeper of the revelation, and to degrade Christ and His authority as the Fearsome Judge of humanity.
If satan was furious after the Abrahamic Covenant, it knew it lost the war after the Resurrection. And in desperation, it crafted its master-piece: islam. Islam is not a religion; it is a political, sacrificial cult aimed at usurping the Abrahamic Covenant from its promissive element, and at negating the Cross. The favorite scape-goats of islamic mob-leaders are thus the Jews and the Christians.
Is satan is real? Well, the word "satan" appears 46 times in the Bible, 13 times in the New Testament, and it is mentioned 12 times by Jesus Himself. The word "devil" or "devils" appears 106 times. There are 157 specific references to satan and his army of demons in the Bible, almost 90% of these references in the New Testament.
Here, I’ve tried to map the roots of islam and its radical hostily towards both the Jewish people and Christianity: From Cain’s murder to the Ark of the Covenant, from the Temple of Rock to Mecca, from the end of the Ottoman Caliphate to the comping, Obama-sponsored Muslim Brotherhood Empire....
The goal is to contextualize — in theology as well as in geography — the incipient Caliphate of the Muslim Brotherhood, Turkey and the Obama régime...
I appreciate the information and the effort you put into this.
Obama name fit right in.
And all documented in their Holy Books.
Sura (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."
Sura (4:74) - "Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward."
Sura (4:76) - "Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah "
Sura (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"
Sura (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
Sura (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah"
Sura (8:57) - "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember."
Sura (9:14) - "Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace..."
Sura (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."
Sura (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!"
Sura (9:123) - "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."
Sura (47:4) - "So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make them prisoners,"
Sura (61:4) - "Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way"
Sura (66:9) - "O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end
From the Hadith:
Muslim (1:33) - the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah
Bukhari (8:387) - Allah's Apostle said, I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah
Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, "Kill any Jew who falls under your power."
Ibn Ishaq: 327 - Allah said, A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.
Ibn Ishaq: 992 - "Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah."
The Koran and hadiths are replete with examples of Muhammad's barbaric behavior. Robert Spencer does a good job here explaining Islam - Blogging the Quran Start at the bottom.
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
The sword of muhammed -- the Zulfiqar sword was forked, like a snake's tongue.
Islamic tradition claims that the Ark of the islamic covenant (which contained muhammed's sword) was not made by Moses, but had FALLEN with Adam and Eve, along with the snake.
Hmmmm.... Could muhammed have make a covenant with satan?
Kewel. Thanks for the ping.
I have been reading your posts.
Have you seen this:
Thanks a million for the education.
The modern day Islamists, the Moslem Brotherhood, with Salafis and Wahhabis woven in, are murderous hordes that will have to be eliminated.
As Texans say, some people need killin’
That's very interesting. I just began to listen to it.
I just learned from your video that if Caliph Umar was able to conquer so much land so fast -- it was because of the BLACK PLAGUE.
Now that seems congruent with the thesis of a satanic covenant..., haha!
The messianic phenomenon (immanent to both Judaism nd Christianity) suggests to substitute a lamb to a human, I mean: to kill a lamb or a ram (in Abraham’s case) rather than a human being.
That’s what Abel did, and God was pleased.
Cain killed a human, in his burning rage.
Islam hasn’t learned from Abel, it is unfolding the line of Cain...
Molech was not an Islamic god. The people who were in the Promised land were invaded by the Israelites and lost their land because they practiced child sacrifice long before Muhammad was born. God told Moses and Israel that if they did the same things the pagans were doing, they too would be invaded. They practiced child sacrifice and the Babylonians invaded.
Problem I see is that most of the world is practicing child sacrifice today. Are those nations being invaded by a people who do not practice child sacrifice? Yup, Muslims.
I know. I making an analogy. There were very strong iconic resonances as well!
“The people who were in the Promised land were invaded by the Israelites and lost their land because they practiced child sacrifice long before Muhammad was born.”
Were those Israelites descendents of Ishmael?
If the Islam actually had sovereignty over the Temple Mount, there would be no change whatsoever in the attitude of Muslims toward the State of Israel.
Also, modern, secular Zionism does not regard the Temple Mount as anything more than a historical curiosity. That's why its administration was turned over to the Muslim Waqf in 1967: Eshkol, Dayan and Rabin couldn't wait to give it up so as not to allow religious Jews to view its capture as religiously significant.
I might add that Islam is a sex cult:
Ann's four part series sums up what is being discussed on this subject.
Thanks! I was just discussing this with my wife and daughter after Church today. Not in this much detail so Thank you.
Thanks again sir.
Wow, you are so helpful. There so much info there; it will take me some days to process it!
Yes, I’ve listened to that twice a few weeks ago. At one point, I felt weak. It’s very real, very hard, very brutal. And very relevant.
I understand what you’re saying, but really, the secularist paradigm can’t grasp the core of the islamic hatred nor the importance of the Covenant, the Ark and the Temple.
Check out article, and # 1 through # 24.
Thanks again, Katechon.
Thanks. It is sometimes said that Islam is an Abrahamic religion, like Christianity and Judaism. But a closer look reveals that Islam denies and reverses just about everything in the biblical account.
Christianity considers itself to be the fulfillment of the Jewish Bible. It does not alter or deny any of the text of the Jewish Bible, as Mohammedanism does. The Christian Bible adds the New Testament, but keeps the Old Testament intact and unchanged.
Nor do thoughtful Christians deny that God’s Covenant with Israel continues to the present time, although the Temple was destroyed by the Romans and the Jewish people dispersed. Several times, the God of the Old Testament declares that His Covenant with Israel is “forever.” They may forsake God from time to time, but He will never forsake them. St. Paul also says in one of his Epistles that God’s covenant with Israel is “forever.”
Saul became Paul, a Christian apostle, but he did not deny the truth of the Covenant. Rather, he argued that Jesus was the promised Messiah, the fulfillment of the Old Covenant promises. Earlier, of course, he had fought fiercely against that idea, until his conversion.
Thus, not all Jews can admit that there is truth in Christianity, but all Christians can say that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—the God Israel—is the same as the Triune God of Christianity.
But not Islam. Islam often makes that claim, but that is nothing but takiya. The Muslim account contradicts the Biblical account—which both Christians and Jews believe to be the historic truth—repeatedly.
Hard to conclude that anyone but Satan could have dreamed up such a religion.
Yes, yes, yes. Indeed. What you’ve said is so important.
This is one of the best articles posted on FR in awhile and I hope it gets a lot of people thinking. This is the destruction that America is really facing (and the world, really) - and I have a very strong feeling it will be coming faster than any of us will believe. This is what we are really up against. Everyone seems to think that we can turn our country around - that there’s some political solution. Does the possibility exist that good changes can still come? Yes, but it isn’t very likely. That’s because our problems are moral ones and no one seems interested in talking very long about that. I just read a post on AT entitled: It Will Take A Moral Movement. It references the great religious revivals of America’s past. Just look at the comments posted (on AT) - they totally avoid the heart of the article. I’ve noticed the same thing here on FR whenever someone posts a similar article. Unless our nation (or a good number of us) comes to its knees in humble true repentance we are lost. Dealing with voter fraud, “uncorrupting” the GOPe, eliminating Rhinos (I know, I repeat myself) and starting a new Tea Party all have their place - but we don’t start there. Otherwise we are only dealing with symptoms. We start by examining our own hearts, by humbling asking God to examine our hearts to see if there be any wicked way in us and to renew or start our relationship with him and let him change us into the people he desires us to be. Just like our Founders of old did. This is our only hope as individuals or as a nation. I’m not very optimistic about our nation, I’m afraid. I believe the Biblical Last Days are upon us. When Syria falls and Jordan after her, Israel will be surrounded by her enemies. read what the Bible says happens then! Bad times will come on Israel after that. Pray, watch and prepare my friends.
This is the name of allah in arabic. Really looks like a snake.
Katechon~:” (from the text) the angel said: “Why should Ishmael have water, since his descendants will destroy the Israelites by thirst?”. God replied: “But now he is innocent, and I judge him according to what he is now”.
See . Even Father judges creatures based upon actions and behavior , rather than on those actions which will occur in future.
Thus , judgement is based on the character of one’s soul and behavior , rather than on that which is known to occur , based upon omnicience and foreknowledge .
He honors ‘Free Agency’ and does not compel us to do neihter good , nor evil ; we all have choice in our behavior , and will be judged accordingly .
Thanks for adding me to the ping on this. I am reading through it carefully, but wanted to comment quickly, that I appreciate your efforts. You have raised some very interesting points for me. You have put into concise wording some things I was trying to tie together as well. Thanks!

Muslims do practice child sacrifice — by suicide-bombing.
They don’t practice abortion, it seems. But they sacrifice a girl’s flesh (genital mutilation) and send their boys to jihad in the way of allah against Jews and Christians (and all Kufrs, really, Hindus, Buddhists, etc).
[I had misread you regarding the Israelites, in my reply of yesterday. I undestand now what you meant regarding the pre-islamic invasion(s) of the Promised Land. Many thanks.]
Those Israelites were NOT descendants of Ishmael, but rather of his half-nephew, Jacob, aka Israel. Jacob’s father, Isaac, was Ishmael’s younger half-brother, Abraham’s son of promise, through whom the Israelites, their tribe of Judah, and the Messiah would come.
Ishmael’s descendants did, indeed, continue to live in Canaan and its surrounds and were often hostile to their Israelite cousins and to Jehovah himself.
But considering your scholarship, you alreadly know all this.
bump for later
Thank you for the clarifications. Yes, it coheres what my readings and thoughts. So it’s basically the descendants of Ishmael against the descendents of Isaac.
Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus — all come from Isaac’s seeds.
Ismael’s descendants will give birth to muhammad, the mouth-piece of the snake.
The Ark of the Covenant was given/built by Moses’s people.
It was a terrible blow to satan that the Torah should be given to Israel, Isaac’s descendants. He endeavored to overthrow it, and led the people to make the golden calf, while the two tables of the Law were bestowed on Moses without satan’s knowledge.
Israel chose God and the book, whereas Ismael’s decendants chose the snake and the sword.
The rest can choose Christ, with Mary as the Ark of the New Covenant, and the Church as its keeper.
