Intentions of Islam

Hamas: Eradicate Israel, Establish Worldwide Islamic Caliphate


"For those who doubt the ultimate intentions of Hamas, the organization that rules the Gaza Strip, Hamas minister Fathi Hammad made their goals crystal clear in a recent public address, stating that first Hamas will eradicate Israel and then convert the world to Islam.

Hammad boasted:

We shall liberate our land, Allah willing. We shall liberate our Al-Aqsa Mosque, and our cities and villages, as a prelude to the establishment of the future Islamic Caliphate. Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are at the threshold of a global Islamic civilization era.

Hammad then urged Fatah, which runs the Palestinian Authority, to join him in eradicating the Jewish presence in Israel, saying:

'We just sit and talk to the Jews. Enough with that! Come join us, the legions of the believers, which have translated the Koran into victory, the law of the Prophet's ancestors into glory, and Jihad into liberation... We shall be coming with a third Intifada, an armed revolution, a Jihadi revolution, Allah willing… Gaza and the West Bank will fuse together, along with our brothers within the 1948 borders, in a second Battle of Hattin, in order to uproot the Jews.'

The battle of Hattin was the victory of Saladin, the Muslim general, over the Christian Crusader forces in 1187.

Hammad also said that any member of the Hamas Army who does not join morning prayers will be fired."

 What is it about Israel that causes violent men and regimes throughout history to want to destroy her?  Her very existence, as tiny as she is, represents something so fearful that it must be eradicated for her destroyers to capture the rest of the world.

From the days of Pharoah in the Book of Exodus, who enslaved Israel and saw the power of Almighty God defend and protect her and do mighty miracles to show us all that Israel is the apple of His eye, to Hitler and his gas chambers; to Hamas and their evil fatwas - they fear who Israel is.

Israel has been chosen of God before the foundation of this world, along with all those who believe in Jesus Christ as Saviour of the world.  Ephesians 1 v 4: "According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love."

Many Jews now believe that Jesus is their Messiah, the rest of them will know it when the Antichrist declares himself God in the rebuilt Temple. Rebuilding has already begun.

Israel was given The Ark of the Covenant through which Moses and Joshua were guided by God through the wilderness to the Promised Land - Eretz Israel. The Ark was so powerful that it brought down the walls of Jericho so thick that 6 chariots could stand side by side across their width.

The power of the Ark did not cause the walls to crumble into rubble, they went straight down into the ground like a slice of toast into a toaster. All the tribes feared the advance of Mighty Israel.

Jesus Christ was born a Jew. John 1 says He came unto His own but His own received Him not. He became the New Covenant of the Jews as promised in Jeremiah 31 v 31-33:

"Behold the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel......Not according to the covenant I made with their fathers, in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, which covenant they brake, although I was a husband unto them saith the Lord: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; .....I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people."

For this, Satan hates Israel, and all Christians who know Jesus. Jesus is the husband of Israel and the Church is His Body.

Jesus is the Bridegroom as declared by John the Baptist in John 3 v 29:

"He that hath the bride is the bridegroom..."

John the Baptist has just declared that Jesus is the Lamb of God as he introduces Jesus to the Jews and then refers to Him as the bridegroom.  

Many years later the Apostle John was shown the bride, the Lamb's wife, as the New Jerusalem consisting of the 12 tribes of Israel. Revelation 21 v 9ff.

Satan wanted to destroy the Bride from time immemorial because her existence meant he could never achieve his goal of exalting his throne above the stars of God. (Isaiah 14).

Since this world was formed Satan has tormented Israel and tried by every means to wipe her out. His latest plan is through Hamas who want to eradicate her and make this world an Islamic Caliphate. We are seeing the rise of the False Prophet who along with the Beast and the Antichrist will form an unholy trinity bringing great tribulation on this earth.  Revelation 16 v 13: "And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet.  For they are the spirits of devils working miracles."

Those who follow the Lamb will be safe.

Prayer: Heavenly Father the Body of Christ will be truly known by their love for Israel because Jesus' love for her will be in every member of His body, every fibre of His being. Every enemy will be defeated by Your power and might. Let us pray for the peace of Jerusalem daily. In Jesus' name. Amen.
