Defining World War III


We have been involved in World War III ever since the 9/11 attacks in 2001. We need to face up to that fact, and we need to acknowledge who the enemy is. And that enemy is not terrorism.

To say that our enemy is terrorism is equivalent to saying that our enemy in World War II was U-boats and Kamikaze planes. No, our enemy was Nazi Germany allied with Imperial Japan.

Our enemy in World War III is not terrorism — that is simply the method of warfare that our enemy is using. Our real enemy is not even “Islamic Fundamentalists” or “Radical Muslims.” Our enemy is Islam.

Islam is and always has been a religion of the sword. Mark Gabriel, a former Muslim and former professor of Islamic history at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, says, “The history of Islam is a river of blood.”

Not only has Islam spread through the use of violence, it maintains its hold on its victims through the use of violence. In most Islamic countries today, conversion to Christianity is punishable by death. Freedom of religion is denied in Muslim controlled nations.

The very word, Islam, means “submission” or “surrender.” The Quran calls upon Jews and Christians to submit to Allah or else face death. Submission without conversion is possible only by paying a heavy tax, called jizya.

The politically correct idea that “Islam is a religion of peace” is downright laughable, as illustrated below in the editorial cartoon by Rick McKee of the Augusta Chronicle.

When Ronald Reagan was president, he did not hesitate to clearly define our enemy. Speaking to The National Association of Evangelicals in March of 1983, he proclaimed, “There is sin and evil in the world, and we’re enjoined by Scripture and the Lord Jesus to oppose it with all our might.” He then proceeded to identify our enemy as the Soviet Union, which he called “the evil empire.” Liberals went nuts, claiming he was being “provocative.” No, he was being realistic and truthful, and he proceeded to bring that evil empire to its knees.

Our current president needs to follow Reagan’s example and face up to recognizing the enemy who wants to destroy us and Christianity.

    Chance of this happening? NONE

    How can we expect this from Barak HUSSEIN Obama who sings the praises of the PROPHET MOHAMMED and the HOOOOOLY KURRRRRRRRRAN? The "Christian" that covers up crosses in church and proclaims "my Muslum faith….er, uh, ooops, my Christian faith". The "Christian" who has fond memories of the beautiful sounds of the Muslim calls to prayer.

    I could add a lot more but what is the point? Obama is the American Antichrist. He hates Christians and Jews. After the Rapture he will remain as President (a strong possibility as we are very, very close), declare martial law due the disappearance of Christians and suspend the Constitution and remain the Dictator in Cheif.

    Far fetched? Right wing whacko talk? Really??? Can you say "executive action"?

  • I do agree completely with the substance of everything stated by Dr. Reagan, but…

    World War III was the so-called 'Cold War' between the Free Capitalist West and the Totalitarian Communist East that began with the first military response of the Berlin Airlift of 1948. World War III was anything but cold. It was global that brought kinetic warfare to every continent on the planet. That moniker wa

    World War III included the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cuban Missile Crisis and dozens of proxy wars over the course of more than four decades which included the Psalm 83 War centered on Israel and the Middle East (and is the only facet of World War III which continues to this day). As correctly noted by Dr. Reagan, this war ended in 1991 as the direct result of President Reagan's military build-up of the 1980s which bankrupted the former Soviet Union and brought about its defeat in Afghanistan, a final economic collapse and the instant independence of 20 nations enslaved under the communist ideology.

    World War IV is the nomenclature I would apply to the war between Islam and the non-Islamic world. It was born of World War III, and is a global war in its own right. It has brought both asymmetrical and kinetic war into all of the major nations of the earth and will only be resolved by the direct intervention of Almighty God who will cause the final fulfillments of three unrelated prophesies to occur (not necessarily in this order): the Harpazo of the Bride of Christ, and the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38/39 wars.

    The final product of World War IV will be the angel Gabriel's prophetic (Daniel 9:26c-27) 70th Week and the global wars of conquest of the Antichrist, which – as we all know – will ultimately result in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the establishment of His Millennial Kingdom on the earth.

    As for the current President, he told us prior to the beginning of his taking office "The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer", and "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." (p.261 "The Audacity of Hope") and followed that with "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." There is no doubt on which side this president stands in this war. He is against us and with the enemy of God (Psalm 83:2).
