Problematic Historic facts on who God was and is, which this President has no clue as to any of the history of Islam, or Christianity. “By your fruits ye shall know them”. Matthew 7:16,20 (It would seem that Obama does not bear any fruits, only vain dead branches.)
First Genesis 1 and the original creation of the universe is 4,000BC. 2. “And the Earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit) moved upon the face of the waters. “(God did not originally create the Earth without form and void; it became this way after a cataclysmic happening; this happening was the revolt of Lucifer (Satan now) against God, which took place some time in the dateless past…but this was the beginning of life!) Expositors Study Bible.
He then created Adam and Eve, which represents the fall and sin of mankind. Genesis 5 states all of Adam’s decendents; in Genesis 6 is the story of Noah and the Ark, and the great flood, and the Tower of Babel (modern day Iraq which was Mesopotamia, the first great civilization. ) The Abrahamic Covenant began around 1921 BC, wherein in 12:2 God says, “I will make you a great nation”…ISRAEL, WHICH INCLUDED PALESTINE…As Abram then as he was called, was led by God out of UR which is in the north of Iraq where the Euprates and Tigris meet, to the land of “milk and honey” Canaan…(Israel). And that covenant was given to now Abraham…the Jews! Later of course came Moses in Egypt and their 40 year trial going around that mountain over and over, complaining…
Then throughout the Old Testament are the stories of Joseph, Solomon, Saul, and King David, the apple of God’s eye, in spite of his sins…and all his cries and praises to God in Psalms. Babylon supremacy ended in 538 BC when the Meeds and the Persians (Iran now) overran Babylon (located in Iraq now, south, near Kuwait…which Saddam Hussein had started to rebuild, the hanging gardens of Nebuchadnezzar, who he believed he was reincarnated from foolishly). * Also from a 1989 UPI article by the late Peter Jennings. As a result, the Jews were liberated from captivity (See Mr. President…the Arabs fought the Jews way back before Jesus AND Mohamed!) The Jews then went back home and rebuilt the walls of the Temple…leading up to Haggai, Zechariah the Prophet, and Malachi, who also prophesied to the Jews. (c. 430 BC). Between that time and its fulfillment when John the Baptist came announcing the coming of the Messiah, was a period of a little over 400 years. (Expositor’s Study Bible). At the close of the Old Testament the Persians (modern day Iran) were the dominant political power….(not religious, for Islam hadn’t come yet.)
There was conflict between descendent’s of Ptolemy as well as the descendent’s of Seleucus so that when Ptolemy IV died, Antiochus III (the Great) took Palestine away from the Jews in 198 BC. (It NEVER belonged to the ARABS….and Islam wasn’t even a religion then!!! ) Many Jews were then killed at this time too. GOD gave that whole country of Israel to the JEWS and the COVENANT BELONGS TO THEM! What followed was the Maccabean Revolt. The Syrians took full advantage of the Jews, who refused to fight on the Sabbath. (SAME countries …almost SAME battles as in the world now.) God gave the COVENANT TO ABRAHAM THROUGH ISAAC, TO THE ARABS, THROUGH ISHMAEL, HE GAVE OIL….
But, through Ismael, to Esau, who was in the womb yet with his twin, Jacob, he had hates, and had a hold of Jacobs heal before birth, and Jacob always had a limp thereafter. Evil..Esau meaning “the hairy one”…the only one God said “Him do I hate!” Esau much to the distress too of his mother and father, Isaac and Rebecca, married 2 Hittite (Turkey) women (Genesis 26:34). We are told by the prophet Ezekiel that Hittites were partially responsible for founding Jerusalem. Ez. 16:3, 45. Jacob and Rebecca were Amorites. A professor Hugo Winckler discovered in 1905 a number of cuneiform texts and hieroglyphics. *The Bible as History by Werner Keller http://www.amazon.com/Bible-as-History-Werner-Keller/dp/B000OYH4DI/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1423330674&sr=1-4&keywords=the+bible+as+history+by+werner+keller
Now the New Testament:
Matthew states that Jesus was born while Herod the Great was still alive and that Herod ordered the slaughter of infants two years old and younger (Matt. 2:16), and based on the date of Herod’s death in 4 BC (contra Dionysius Exiguus), many chronologists conclude that the year 6 BC is the most likely year of Jesus’ birth.
Before Jesus birth there were numerous rulers, until Simon (the Just) who ruled 144-135 BC. He was the first to really rule the Kingdom. He was then assassinated in 135 BC by his son-in-law, Ptolemy. John Hyrcanus rules from 135 -106 BC. Then came Roman control. Aristobulus and his sons rules until Rome took over. After a period of independence under the Maccabees, Palestine came under Roman control in 63 BC under Pompey. He besieged Jerusalem for three months and reportedly killed twelve thousand Jews after he took the city!
Based on inferences from Gospel accounts, Jesus was executed by crucifixion on a Friday, and on the 14th day of the Jewish month of Nisan under the administration of Pontius Pilate. Pontius Pilate held his position from 26-36 and the only years in which Nisan 14 fell on a Friday are 27, 33, and 36 and possibly in 30 depending on when the new moon would have been visible in Jerusalem. Scholars have defended all of the dates.
The Romans entered the Temple and the Holy of Holies…(a sin)..but they did not take the costly furnishings.. The Temple worship was still allowed. *REMEMBER THE JEWS DURING THIS TIME, AND THE TEMPLE BUILT BY GOD ALMIGHTY WAS THE ONLY RELIGION AND THE FIRST RELIGION OF THIS WORLD! PERIOD! We Gentiles only come to the throne of God via Jesus Christ, who was a Jew too, and Rabbi. THERE was no Mohammad then, nor ISLAM, Hindu, or Buddist or Catholic church, for in then Mesopotamia and UR (Iraq) when Abraham was born, was the FIRST and only civilization on our whole planet! Other countries took hundreds of years to reproduce. Therefore, there is even historically only ONE God, the Father, God the son, and God the HOLY Spirit…
Muhammad was born around the year 570 AD in the city of Mecca, Arabia. His name means “highly praised.” Muhammad’s full name was Abu al-Qasim Muhammad Ibn Abd Allah Ibn Abd al-Muttalib Ibn Hashim. He was the last prophet of the religion of Islam. (*This means he was born 564 years AFTER Jesus.)
Muhammad’s father, Abdallah, died several weeks before his birth and his mother, Aminah, died when he was six years old. He was raised by his paternal grandfather, ‘Abd al Muttalib, until the age of eight, and after his grandfather’s death by Abu Talib, his paternal uncle. Under the guardianship of Abu Talib, Muhammad began to earn a living as a businessman and a trader.
The tradition of Islam claims that in the year 610, Muhammad, while on a retreat to Mount Hira for meditation during the month of Ramadan, received his first revelation from the Archangel Gabriel. Gabriel said to Muhammad: “Iqraa,” meaning “read” or “recite.” He replied, “I cannot read.” Gabriel embraced Muhammad and after releasing him repeated: “Iqraa.” Muhammad’s answer was the same as before. Gabriel repeated the embrace, asking Muhammad to repeat after him and said: “Recite in the name of your Lord who created! He created man from that which clings. Recite; and thy Lord is most Bountiful, He who has taught by the pen, taught man what he knew not.” (How could he be learned if he couldn’t read?)
The Prophet’s mission was to restore the worship of the One True God, the creator and sustainer of the universe, as taught by Prophet Abraham and all Prophets of God, and to demonstrate the laws of moral, ethical, legal, and social conduct. Islam means peace by submission and obedience to the Will and Commandments of God. Those who accept Islam are called Muslims, meaning those who have accepted the message of peace by submission to God. (Note: This tells me he hijacked Judaism from Abraham and the covenant God gave to the JEWS….and 564 years + after Jesus birth and Crucifixion, the beginning of Christianity, which did NOT begin in the Catholic church…(I’ll get to) but from the JEWS, Jesus, (Rabbi in Matthew) Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, etc. ALL JEWS! To me, this represents a FALSE God….During the early civilization of Abram when God took him out of UR and changed his name to Abraham, there was only one God then and now. Jesus never took authority away from God the Father, but as the son, and WITH the Holy Spirit beckons us to come to the throne, with salvation. For there is NONE other…Name above all names!
The Roman period began from AD 6 (AD 66 rebellion; AD 70 destruction of Herod’s Temple, AD 73 the fall of Masada. About AD 70 was the Gospel of St. Mark. Between 75 and 95 Matthew and Luke, John 90 AD and apocalypse. End of the 1st century, Acts of the Apostles and Gospel of St. John. Also the establishment of the Hebrew Bible canon at Jabneh, followed by Second Epistle of St. Peter…in 2nd century AD. It was before this all that Jesus said in Matthew 22: 21 to the Temple money changers, “Render to Caesar the things which are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s.” In AD 33 came the destruction of the Temple. In 24:7 “For nation shall rise against nation, and Kingdom against Kingdom; and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places. ” NOW! “All these are the beginnings of sorrows…” First half of the great tribulation….like birthing pains…which this President Obama has ushered in doing the work of Satan himself! And the world now for the first time in all of history, with all technolgy…the gospel has been preached in all the world for the first time! All the false religions, of which Islam is…
(Below…Jordanian Sheikh, attests that God gave Palestine to the JEWS!)
Matthew 26 (AD 33, Jesus, 27 if born in AD6) “Then assembled together together the Chief Priests and the Scribes, and the Elders of the people (members of the Sanhedrin), unto the palace of the High Priest, who was called CAIAPHAS. (It was Caiaphas a Roman who plotted to kill Christ….not fellow Jews. For the appointees in the Jewish Temple and Holy of Holies, and Rabbi’s then were appointed by Romans since the rules Jerusalem then. For decades and decades the Catholic Church lied and in their “own” hate blamed fellow Jews for killing Jesus. (And I know not what O’Reilly [a Catholic] wrote and who he blamed for Jesus death…But it was not JEWS! Herod too, was a Roman and not a Jew. He was born in Idumea his father Idumean, his mother Kypros, was ARAB!! Herod died at 70 in 4 BC, 36 years after Rome made him a King. Herod was born in southern Palestine. His father, Antipater, was an Edomite (an Arab from the region between the Dead Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba).
WHEREFORE, it was the Caiphas, and the Roman soldiers and an Arab, Herod, who killed Jesus!! And Muhammad, wasn’t born until 570 AD, again… born 564 years AFTER Jesus. AND the Catholic church and first Pope (540-604 ) Also after Jesus who was a JEW. The Roman’s hijacked the Jewish religion the FIRST religion, and then the ONLY religion, into the Catholic Church…and so did the ARABS…Jesus was a Rabbi in the Temple, a Jew…and he never intended to have a new religion, ie Christianity. That happened after his death with his disciples, especially the travel and witness by Apostle Paul.
“Pope Gregory I (Gregorius I; c. 540 – 12 March 604), commonly known as Saint Gregory the Great, was Pope from 3 September 590 to his death in 604. Gregory is well known for his writings, which were more prolific than those of any of his predecessors as pope. He is also known as St. Gregory the Dialogist in Eastern Christianity because of hisDialogues. For this reason, English translations of Eastern texts will sometimes list him as “Gregory Dialogus”. Throughout the Middle Ages he was known as “the Father of Christian Worship” because of his exceptional efforts in revising the Roman worship of his day.” Wikepedia
Within the conciliar process Rome had always sustained a position of respect and leadership in the Christian world but the Roman Church and the Pope in particular never acted over the heads or apart from his brothers in the east. Sadly his was all to change in the 11th century. It was the tragedy of the Great Schism in 1054 AD and the 4th Crusade in 1202/04 AD that finally separated Rome from Orthodoxy. The first dispute was theological with a significant prehistory of drifting apart. The second incident concerned a human tragedy caused by rampaging western Crusaders trashing Constantinople and its churches. More significant perhaps was what happened in the west after 1054. Going on to: The “reforms” of Pope Gregory 7th (c. 1020/25) put the western part of the Church on a confrontational footing with the State by asserting Church and Papal supremacy. Moreover, this Pope’s teaching and policies also put Rome on a collision course with Orthodoxy which continued to adhere to the ancient principles of local episcopal authority, conciliarity and a married clergy; all of which Pope Gregory sought to undermine. Within a generation Rome and Constantinople were out of Communion and the so called Great Schism has remained as it was to the present day.
There has been slavery too, since the beginning of time, to Abraham.. After all Ishmael’s mother who was Arab, Hagar was Sarah’s handmaiden…(a slave!) Moses too, the Egyptians, Arabs, slavery and persecution and slaughter of Christians and Jews have existed for thousands of years. And…as I watch Genealogy Road Show on PBS…it seems that FREE BLACK SLAVES, here in America, also OWNED slaves. So before the left points a finger, know your facts!
From Brigitte Gabriel: “It was in that setting that President Obama delivered remarks comparing the actions of the Islamic State to things done “in the name of Jesus Christ.” Among those things according to President Obama: slavery.
He then cited the Crusades.
Not only were his remarks inappropriate for the occasion and insulting to peace loving Christians everywhere, they were historically inaccurate.
In terms of slavery, while it is true that Christians owned slaves, slavery is not an integral part of Christian doctrine. Jesus did not own slaves. The same cannot be said of Islam. Mohammed owned many slaves and even shared concubines with his warriors. There are today forty different words in Arabic to describe slaves; that’s how prominent slavery has been in the Islamic world. The slave trade in Africa was largely run by Muslims. And when Western nations finally abolished the evil practice of slavery, that slave trade in Africa persisted without them. Remember, Saudi Arabia, the site of Islam’s holiest sites, did not outlaw slavery until the 1960s. Moreover, slavery is still practiced today in parts of Islamic Africa, notably Sudan.
But Obama’s biggest dose of disinformation came in the form of his remarks on the Crusades.
There is a myth that the Crusades were nothing but an aggressive series of wars in which Christendom attacked the Muslim world and committed atrocities.
The reality is somewhat different.
The Crusades actually began after centuries of Islamic jihad invading, pillaging and conquering Christian lands in present-day North Africa and parts of Europe.
After 400 years of systematic genocide of Christians at the hands of Islamic jihadists, Pope Urban II, acting on a plea from the Byzantine emperor whose people had been attacked by Muslim hoards, finally called on “Christ’s heralds” to sound the call for help for the Christians in the east and free the Holy Land.
So, the first Crusade was a defensive action in response to Islamic jihad.
This is an historical fact that our president unfortunately left out of his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast.” *quote from ACT, Brigitte Gabriel https://www.actforamerica.org https://www.facebook.com/actforamerica
Muhammad (Arabic: محمد; c. 570 – 8 June 632), full name Abū al-Qāsim Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh ibn ʿAbd al-Muṭṭalib ibn Hāshim (ابو القاسم محمد ابن عبد الله ابن عبد المطلب ابن هاشم), from Mecca, unified Arabia into a single religious polity under Islam. Believed by Muslims and Bahá’ís to be amessenger and prophet of God, Muhammad is almost universally[n 1] considered by Muslims as the last prophet sent by God to mankind.[n 2] While non-Muslims generally regard Muhammad as the founder of Islam, Muslims consider him to have restored the unaltered original monotheistic faith of Adam,Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets in Islam.
Born approximately in 570 CE in the Arabian city of Mecca, Muhammad was orphaned at an early age; he was raised under the care of his paternal uncle Abu Talib. After his childhood Muhammad primarily worked as a merchant. Occasionally he would retreat to a cave in the mountains for several nights of seclusion and prayer; later, at age 40, he reported at this spot, that he was visited by Gabriel and received his first revelation from God. Three years after this event Muhammad started preaching these revelations publicly, proclaiming that “God is One“, that complete “surrender” (lit. islām) to Him is the only way (dīn)[n 3] acceptable to God, and that he was a prophet and messenger of God, similar to other Islamic prophets.
Muhammad gained few followers early on, and met hostility from some Meccan tribes. To escape persecution, Muhammad http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammadto Abyssinia before he and his followers in Mecca migrated to Medina (then known as Yathrib) in the year 622. This event, the Hijra, marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar, also known as the Hijri Calendar. In Medina, Muhammad united the tribes under theConstitution of Medina. After eight years of fighting with the Meccan tribes, Muhammad gathered an army of 10,000 Muslim converts and marched on the city of Mecca. The attack went largely uncontested and Muhammad took over the city with little bloodshed. He destroyed the pagan idols in the city and sent his followers out to destroy all remaining pagan temples in Eastern Arabia. In 632, a few months after returning to Medina from the Farewell Pilgrimage, Muhammad fell ill and died. Before his death, most of theArabian Peninsula had converted to Islam, and he had united Arabia into a single Muslim religious polity.
There is only ONE GOD…NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES! THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END. “THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GOD’S BEFORE THEE..” God the Father, the Almighty…the CREATOR, cannot be reached by any of us unless through his son, Jesus Christ, who died knowingly on that CROSS at Calvary, shedding his blood for the sins of mankind. The I AM! My God is the only God of Abraham…and as a Gentile, I can only come to the Father through the son. Beware of false prophets…They will lead you to hell.
My God heals, he saves, he molds us like clay in HIS image, he gives us love, as a Father does, and chastises us when we do wrong, so we repent of all evil. He does not teach hate, and he does not advocate brutal killings…(The 10 Commandments). Yet HE and only HE sitting on the right hand side of the Father, will be our final judge. There is only one….In him do I serve…I shall not keep silent! “If my people, which are called by MY name shall humble themselves, (humility) and pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, THEN will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. ” II Chronicles 7:14
