Today I want to look at the problem of mass immigration in Europe. Tomorrow I will share an interview with a friend of mine from my Bible College days. He is a national pastor in Germany.
Before I get started I want to make it clear that we are not against Muslims here at Fortress of faith.
Every society that did not resist Islam lost its freedom and its religion. We are calling on Americans to resist Islam so we don’t lose our culture and our heritage.
We are in opposition to Islam, but not to Muslims. Islam is the ideology, Muslims are the people. They have been deceived by a false religion, most of them from birth. They are not allowed to question their religion. In Islamic countries they are not allowed to investigate its truthfulness. Those who are coming to America have the freedom to ask questions and investigate.
When Muslims do ask the important questions, most of them leave Islam.
Our second goal is to bring Muslims to the truth, to evangelize them. They have been lied to, and this lie will send them to Hell. The teachings of Islam tells them that Jesus was a good man and a prophet, but He was just a man. They strip away His deity.
They also tell Muslims that Jesus didn’t die on the cross. One of their commentators put it this way: Allah could see that Isa (Jesus) was in trouble so he rescued him and took him to Heaven. He took his image and put it on another, and he went to the cross to fool everyone into believing that Isa died, but he did not.
If you don’t have the death of Jesus on the cross, you don’t have the blood atonement. If you don’t have His death, you don’t have His resurrection. Without these, you don’t have the Gospel.
Islam teaches Muslims that Jesus was not God, He didn’t die on the cross, and He did not raise from the grave. Without these three things, a person is lost for all eternity.
There are 1.7 billion people in the world today who are following this false religion, not to mention all of those who have followed Islam for the last 1,400 years.
The third part of our ministry is reviving America.
Why has God allowed this false ideology to grow so fast?
Why is it targeting the West?
I believe God is using Islam to bring judgment for our sins. When I say God, I am talking about Jehovah God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
God us using this religion to turn us to repentance. If we are going to turn things around, repentance is an absolute necessity. Revival only comes through the doorway of repentant hearts of God’s people. This is why we are calling God’s people to come to repentance.
We see the judgment of our nation on the horizon. Europe is further down the road than we are. I spent 29 years in the UK and my wife spent many years growing up in France. We have witnessed the development of Islam in Europe. Sharia Law is now part of the legal code in Great Britain. The headquarters for the Sharia Law Courts is in the town I grew up in. We are well acquainted with the agenda of Islam.
Europe is in trouble with this Islamic invasion. The majority of the asylum seekers coming into Europe are young men. They are not necessarily victims of war, but are people looking for a better life or free handouts. Some are coming in with other motives.
Soeren Kern of the Gatestone Institute does a good job of documenting what is going on in Europe. Here are some of the things that happened in the month of October:
On October 1st, the Network Enforcement Act, also known as the Facebook Law, came into force in Germany. It requires social media companies to remove illegal hate speech within 24 hours. If they don’t, they can be fined up to a half a million Euros.
On October 2nd, the Secretary General of the Christian Social Union said Germany’s partial ban on face covering must be expanded to include a full ban on the burka in public.
People are beginning to push back on this cultural revolution coming from Islam moving into their country.
On October 3rd, the Deputy Leader of the Anti-Immigration Party said that political Islam has no place in Germany. He said they are in favor of religious freedom, but Islam is claiming political power, and this is what we oppose.
I fully support what he is saying. He is absolutely right.
On October 3rd, approximately 1,000 mosques opened their doors to visitors as part of the 20th annual day of open mosques.
On October 4th, a 47 year old migrant from Kazakhstan, at a refugee shelter, castrated a 28 year old Ukrainian migrant who bled to death at the scene.
On October 7th, about 60 migrant teenagers attacked each other and the police at the annual Harvest Festival.
On October 8th, Chancellor Angela Merklel agreed to cap the number of refugees Germany accepts each year. She has reduced the number from 250,000 to 200,000 as an olive branch to the opposition party.
On October 9th, thieves broke into an immigration office and stole up to 20,000 blank passports and other immigration documents. They also took official stamps and seals. People can now move about in the European community, as well as have access to other countries like the US.
On October 9th, the Interior Minister said we need to introduce Muslim public holidays, we need to become more multicultural.
On October 11th, the Interior Minster approved a temporary ban on additional refugees from settling in a city that had a very high Muslim population.
On October 12th, a 28 year old migrant from Nigeria was sentenced to 13 years in prison for stabbing a 22 year old assistant at a refugee shelter to death. He stabbed her 21 times. The criminal charges were reduced to manslaughter because they couldn’t decide if the killing was premeditated.
On October 12, an official inquiry into a jihadist attack on a Christmas Market in Berlin concluded that the attack could have been prevented. The Attorney General’s office missed repeated opportunities to arrest the perpetrator, a failed asylum seeker from Tunisia, in the months preceding the attack.
On October 12th, a Hezbollah combatant had enter Germany disguised as a refugee from the Middle East. Hezbollah is a Shia’ terrorist organization out of Lebanon.
On October 13, an entire wing of the hospital in Bon was closed after an outbreak of scabies. The area was cleaned and disinfected, and sick patients were sent to an isolation ward. Since the refugee crisis there has been a 3,000% increase in this type of disease.
October 14th, the trial began for a 37 year old migrant from Iraq who is accused of stabbing his wife, the mother of his 5 children who were in the house at the time. He stabbed her at least 9 times. He did it to “restore the family honor.” She was not submitting to Islam.
On October 18th, the head of Germany’s Domestic Intelligence Agency warned that the new generation of junior jihadists posed a long term threat to Germany. He said, “We see the danger that children of jihadist indoctrinated islamism will return from combat zones to Germany. At least 950 German jihadists have traveled to Syria and Iraq to join ISIS as of October 2017.
On October 22nd, a report said German justice is overwhelmed with terrorist proceedings. The Prosecution Office says there are more than 900 terrorist cases open in the first 9 months of 2017.
I think Germany has its hands full, and I think they are beginning to realize they have made a mistake. I recommend that we learn from the mistakes of Europe before it is too late for us.
