I just heard that Sharia Law has been accepted and approved in Irving, Texas. I am sure that some people won’t bat an eye and will wonder what that has to do with us. They mistakenly believe that this won’t affect us–that this law is just for the Muslims who live here. Does anyone know what Sharia Law is and the punishments that are handed out and for what?
Has it escaped anyone’s mind that this is just the beginning of something that has far-reaching consequences? Remember Jesus? The Jews couldn’t put anyone to death, so they demanded the Romans do it? I believe we are going to see this in reverse. I think the Muslims are going to want to put us to death and are going to use their law in our country against us.
If you haven’t thought of this and are even thinking this is laughable, I have a good idea how it’s going to happen now that Sharia Law has a foothold in our country, particularly in a State (Texas) that is known for its passionate patriotism. Muslims have convinced Americans that they just want this law for themselves, and maybe they do, but their more fundamental “cousins” (aka the Muslim Brotherhood, Isis, whom we call terrorists) will see this as their golden opportunity.
First, they infiltrate our legal system. They start becoming active in local and state politics (they already hold some major federal offices). We are going to elect them. And before you say that won’t happen, remember, we elected Obama. (I’m using the general we–I certainly didn’t want him to be President either term). They are patiently waiting for their opportunity and with this new announcement from Texas, opportunity is knocking.
This morning in my Bible reading, I found Romans 9:22-24, which reads,
22 But what if God, willing to demonstrate his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience the objects of wrath prepared for destruction? 23 And what if he is willing to make known the wealth of his glory on the objects of mercy that he has prepared beforehand for glory— 24 even us, whom he has called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles?
God tells us 365 times in the Scripture not to be afraid. Jesus overcame the world when He died on the cross and was resurrected for our salvation. Now is the time for Christians to pray like never before. Our Nation and our world need a revival–a personal revival that happens in each one of us–those of us who have taken our religious liberty for granted–those of us who have sat by and done nothing while the world falls apart because we want someone else to do it–those of us more concerned for our salvation and that of our family. We all need to wake up to what’s happening around us. Christians, particularly American Christians, need an Awakening. We need to view what’s going on in our world through the lens of eternity. God has a purpose for every individual. That purpose is for His Kingdom not ours.
