Shocking: Muslims Are Now Declaring Erdogan As God


By Shoebat Foundation on March 30, 2015 in Featured, General


As shocking as it may be, Erdogan is being proclaimed as God amongst diehard leaders in Turkey. And if in doubt, read this (link here) Erdogan proclaimed himself as God.

Everyday I wake up I am not just shocked at what I find in my researches on Erdogan of Turkey, but amazed in awe how closer this man is beginning to mimic what the biblical prophets of old declared as The Antichrist proclaiming himself to be God in 2 Thessalonians 2.

As shocking as you just read it, wait till you read this article by Mustafa Akyol (a columnist for Al-Monitor’s Turkey Pulse, the Turkish Hurriyet Daily News, The International New York Times and The Wall Street Journal) and be amazed that reputable writers are now documenting that Erdogan is literally viewed by many Muslims as “God”. You heard it correctly.
 


Aykol writes of Erdogan’s cult of personality:

“In a recent book, Recep Tayyip Erdogan: The Sun of the Age,” Aykol writes “proudly gives him titles that only belong to deity which would sound bizarre, if not heretical”.

Indeed, I am not sure if Aykol is aware, to the Wahhabist Muslim this is true, but not the Sufi Muslim who believes in the Sufi doctrine of “Fana” in which man becomes God. Aykol adds:

“In 2011, an AKP deputy declared, “Even touching Erdogan is a form of worship,” and in 2014 another AKP deputy proclaimed that Erdogan “carries all the attributes of Allah in himself.”

“The Sun of the Age,” and “carries all the attributes of Allah in himself” and “Even touching Erdogan is a form of worship,” qualifies Erdogan to fit what none of us Christians who would ever doubt what was already proclaimed in the Bible:

Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. – 2 Thessalonians 2 1-4

Religion of Peace?


 
Now can we stop defending Muslims? Islam is the religion. Muslim means, one who is submissive to Islam. A "good" Muslim, submissive to Islam, by their own scriptures, is by definition a terrorist & murderer.

Koran 2:191        “Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them’”

Koran 3:28           “Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.”

Koran 3:85           “Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.”

Koran 5:33           “Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam.”

Koran 8:12           “Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Koran.”

Koran 8:60           “Muslims must muster all weapons  to terrorize the infidels.”

Koran 8:65           “The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.”

Koran 9:5             “When opportunity arises kill the infidels wherever you find them.”

Koran 9:30           “The Jews and Christians are perverts, fight them.”

Koran 9:123        “Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.”

Koran 22:19        “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water, melt their skin and bellies.”

Koran 47:4           “Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.”

IT IS WELL WORTH IT


 

Last week I talked to a man from half way around the world that claims to have repented and was baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of his sins as according to Acts 2:38, but…..

This man said, “I tried and tried to believe in the name of Jesus Christ but I could not bring myself to actually get to that point, I DO NOT BELIEVE.” Herein lies the problem with  ‘The Acts 2:38 Only Doctrine’ for salvation, there is no power in being baptized in the name of Jesus Christ if a person does not believe. This man went on to say, “I tried to pray, I really did, but when you do not know who you are to pray to it is hard to believe in what you are praying for.”

He asked me, “Since I have been baptized in water, in the name of Jesus Christ…. am I saved? Do I have the gift of Eternal Salvation?”

All I could do is shake my head while looking at the words this man just wrote to me. I realized that no one had introduced this man to Jesus Christ, no one had ever showed him Scripture in the Bible to confirm to this man who Jesus Christ is. I found it quite amazing that someone, a man of GOD especially did not take the time to show this man who Jesus Christ really is before baptizing him in the name of Jesus Christ.

I replied: “To answer your question as politely as I can, no matter what anyone else tells you, YOU ARE NOT SAVED! Being baptized in accordance with Acts 2:38 and not believing on the name of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you only took a very public bath with your clothes on. If you were to die today without believing that Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross, died as the ultimate sacrifice for the forgiveness of your sins, was buried and arose again on the third day you will be judged as a non-believer and cast out into outer darkness for eternity.”

He replied a short time later, “So, you are saying I waisted my time being baptized and if I were to die today, I would go to hell. Thank you for your honesty, that is all I asked from the others that enticed me to be baptized, I will let you know what the others say that talked me into being baptized a few days ago.”

Before he logged off, I gave him a link to an online Bible Study site and gave a list of scriptures to read and study. I told him that someone dropped the ball but GOD led him to someone that would pick that ball up and not let it go until he believed in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Just about an hour ago, I got a message from this man, “Bishop Sparks, thank you for introducing me to who Jesus Christ really is. Thank you for giving me that list for Scriptures to study and meditate on. I just want to let you know that I spoke with that group and their preacher that baptized me that day telling them what you had said. They tried their best to prove you wrong but with the Word of GOD that you gave me, you proved all of them wrong. Three men actually became so angry that they were made to leave and I could hear them yelling all the way out the door. The preacher looked at me and said, ‘I thought you believed already, if I would have known you did not, I would have not baptized you, please forgive me.’ He offered to pray with me and asked what he could pray about, I said, I want to believe, I really do. The preacher prayed for me and suggested I contact you when I start believing in the name of Jesus Christ. Well, I want you to know, I do believe now, not because of anything that preacher said or even what you said, but what the Bible says in John 3:15-21. Thank you Bishop Sparks for your obedience unto GOD and your integrity to speak the Truth. I now BELIEVE and now I know I AM SAVED!”

To all those brothers and sisters in the Lord that believe in the Acts 2:38 Doctrine as your plan of Salvation, I caution you to make sure you are leading people to believe in Jesus Christ first. Without believing they can never be saved because they are condemned unto judgement. Just to bring back into remembrance what the Word of GOD teaches:

15 That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For GOD so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For GOD sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of GOD. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in GOD.” (John 3:15-21 KJV)

Please remember not to get ahead of GOD, there are those He is still reaching out to, just to believe in Him. It is easy for you and I to have faith in GOD and know that Jesus Christ is our Savior but there are those that just do not believe. It is not that they are bad people, most of the time it is the fact that we as Christians have forgotten what it means to not believe. GOD loves you and I even those that are afar off, the Word of GOD teaches:

8 The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the Word of Faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that GOD hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!” (Romans 10:8-15 KJV)

Be steadfast in your faith and exercise your belief in the one that we call Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ reached out to you even in your unbelief and through His love and patience caused you to believe. Lead someone to believe in Jesus Christ today, trust me, it is well worth it…..

BREAKING: US Pacific Fleet Commander Drops Bombshell About Obama and Muslim Brotherhood


Sunday, January 25th, 2015

It’s pretty bad when a former commander-in-chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet feels compelled to write a telling piece as to why his former boss, President Obama, is on the verge of single-handedly handing over the fate of American citizens to radical Islamists.

Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons, a 36-year Navy officer, wrote the column for Breitbart, which is beyond shocking and infuriating. Coming from a man who often reported directly to the White House and was responsible for a long list of victories, both diplomatic and physical, Lyons is about as credible as a source could ever hope to be.

The big news over the past few weeks was Obama’s no-show for the massive march in solidarity that took place in Paris with forty other world leaders in attendance. Obama’s absence was nothing short of a message, albeit subtle, to the Islamic nation that as long as he’s king, they’re free to advance their radical agenda.

Lyons brought to light a shocking number of instances over the course of Obama’s time in office when he has given a virtual green light to radical Islamists and has completely reversed America’s stance in the Middle East, at least during the current administration. (H/T Breitbart)

One instance he wrote about was when Obama showed his support for the Islamic uprisings that were eventually known as the “Arab Spring.” He pointed to a frightening statement Obama made during a 2012 UN Assembly where he declared, “that the future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.”

The Arab Spring was not a movement of freedom and democracy, rather, it was an obvious awakening for radical Islamists across the Middle East and the start of a revolution against the West.

Another glaring issue that still plagues U.S. military leaders today is the fact that we essentially changed teams in the Global War on Terror. Instead of aligning with important allies in the region, we began backing militias who are aligned with Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood, a group which Obama is quite familiar with and even friendly toward, have already began the process of accomplishing their goal to bring the U.S. to its knees and infiltrate all levels of U.S. government.

Because Obama has embraced this radical group, who operate under the guise of the front group CAIR in the U.S., they’ve managed to take top positions of leadership and influence throughout the U.S. intelligence community – even going as far as directing the removal of negative references to Islam in every training manual used by government agents and law enforcement.

The psychological operation they’re running against the U.S. is powerful and effective, to say the least.

It doesn’t appear that much will change as long as Obama is president and the GOP is still controlled by Obama’s Republican puppet, Rep. John Boehner. So until then, we can hope for good men such as Rep. Trey Gowdy, Allen West and a handful of other no-nonsense leaders to keep America from completely succumbing to the growing shadow of radical Islam.

We salute Admiral Lyons for his willingness to expose his former boss for American citizens to see.

Earl J. Knotts shares his notes


By him all things consist!
Praise the Lord everyone! Today, I would like to talk about the greatness of God! My scripture text is:

Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Col 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Has anyone of you ever just thought about how great, mighty, and awesome our God truly is? While I was walking, rejoicing, and talking to the Lord, the subject of this topic came to me. And I started thinking about what I am writing. And I thought about all of the things that our Lord created; even the smallest of things, and even that which we cannot see with our eyes. Everything that exist, the life here on Earth, our solar system, the entire universe, even to the atom, all has a balance, and an order to them! And all things were created by God! Just take a look at the atom! And what is an atom? Does not all creation consist of atoms? Absolutely! Without atoms, nothing would exist! And the very God we serve, created the atom, and he holds all atoms together by his awesome power, and might! We humans put God in a box, and try to place him in "our" way of thinking! We need to stop doing that! God created all things, and placed them in order according to his perfect will! We need to just allow God to have his way, and let his perfect will be done in our lives! We need to stop worrying about things, and just let God, be God! So stop worrying about things, and just put all things in his hands, and he will take care of it! Matt 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

God is more than Amazing!
Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

 Col 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Col 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence.

Col 1:19 For it pleased [the Father] that in him should all fulness dwell;

Col 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, [I say], whether [they be] things in earth, or things in heaven.

 Ps 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

 1Cor 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

The Covenant of Jesus Christ


  
By Kenneth Pitcock

     The greatest gift available to man is the Covenant of Jesus Christ. There is nothing in our lives as important as eternal life. Eternal life is only available through the Covenant of our Lord. There are many false doctrines in the world today. The scriptures teach that many false prophets will arise and deceive many. (Matthew 24:11)  Only the Chosen of the Lord will receive His Covenant. He told us that “Many are called, but few are chosen.” (Matthew 20:16) The way to eternal life is a narrow path. This means that there are dangers on both sides of the path. To understand God's will, it requires us to seek Him and do His will. The scripture states; “We know that God heareth not sinners, but if any man be a worshiper of God and doeth His will, him God heareth.” (John 9:31)  It is evident by this scripture, that the casual seeker will not be able to make an appeal to the Lord. Jesus also told us that: “broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, but straight is the gait that leadeth to life, and few there be that find it.”(Matthew 7:13) This lesson is written so those that hunger and thirst after righteousness are assisted in finding it.

     The word covenant can easily be interchanged with promise. His Covenant is His promise to you, and your promise to Him. His Church is called the Bride of Christ. Therefore, this Covenant is as an espousal. Sometime after the return of Jesus, there is a marriage and marriage supper between Christ and His body of believers. (Revelations 19:7-9) God promises on His behalf, that He will forgive you of your sins and never impute them  (charge them)  to you. (Romans 4:7-8) It also states that by His one sacrifice, He has perfected them forever who are sanctified, whereby the Holy Spirit is witness.(Hebrew 10:14-20) Once you have repented of your sins, been baptized in Jesus name, and received the Holy Ghost, you're perfected forever! There is no more sacrifice that is needed to be made. This is possible because once you're born again, you are taken out of the law, and placed into the law of the liberty in Christ Jesus. (James 2:12) His laws have been placed in our hearts and minds. There is therefore no need for a written law anymore. We are no longer subject to such things as touch not, taste not, and handle not.(Colossians2:21) There are many man made religions that seek to put a bondage on the believers of the Lord. They are mostly imposed by teaching people that they are required to obey the Mosaic Law of the Old Testament. Others impose their own man made doctrines. When the Apostles were gathered to discuss the restrictions that were to be imposed on the Gentile believers, (Non Jewish)   they gave their voices in Acts15:5-20.  They were to refrain from pollution to idols, from fornication, from things strangled, and from blood.

    Someone that is born again is the Lords free man. Yet, because of his love of Jesus, he has made himself a servant of Jesus. A true believer desires not to sin. A true believer will seek to please and worship the Lord.  Like earlier stated, a born again person is taken out of the law. Where there is no law, there can be no transgression.(Romans 4:15) It is crazy to drive a car 100 MPH down a city street. However, if there is no law against it, you can not be prosecuted for it. Therefore since you are no longer under the law, when you do things contained in the law, you are no longer charged with it. It is for this cause that Jesus went into hell after giving His life on the cross to preach unto the disobedient in Noah's days. They were wicked and violent, but the only law given to man at that time, was not to eat of the tree of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden. I can't tell you what Jesus preached to those souls, but it is evident that it was something that they could be judged by at the Judgment of the Lord.

  This subject of law versus grace was of much discussion during the early church. But, the apostles did conclude as above stated the things believers were to refrain from.

     To understand this subject, it is necessary to put it in the overall plan of God. The scriptures teach us that before the law, sin was in the world, but where there is no law, there is no transgression. (Romans 4:15)  The purpose of the law was to make all guilty before God. (Romans 3:19)  Then, it would allow them to turn to Jesus and His plan of salvation to be saved. The Apostle Paul was used greatly by the Lord Jesus to bring this understanding to the Church. It was of great great concern to the Jews who were converted to Jesus that had been keepers of the law. As a matter of fact, Jesus became a stumbling block to the Jews because they sought to be justified by keeping the law, when the law was given to make all guilty. They tried to seek justification by keeping the ordinances contained in the law. Romans 9:30-33 explains this in more detail. We can't make ourselves anymore right than the work that Jesus did for us on the cross. Doing things in the law will not give you anymore favor with God. On the contrary, if we seek to be justified by doing the things in the law, we will fall from grace. Galatians (5:4) Galatians 2:16-21 deals with this and what we are to do for justification. The seriousness of this subject can't be over stated. None of us want to fall from grace!

     Many ministers in this day are so afraid to preach this truth because they feel it will give their believers an attitude of; let us do whatever we want, good or bad. This is far from the truth! Someone truly born again will only seek to do things that please God. If you make a mistake, you will be the first to repent and try to please God. No laws or rules are able to stop people from doing wrong. Nor, can they justify anyone by doing what is right. We are justified by faith in the Lord. Believing He will do what He promised in His covenant.

     Our part of the covenant requires us to be faithful to the Lord and have no other God, or idol before Him. We are required to be faithful to Him. There are a few things that the Apostles taught us to do according to the flesh. You will find them in the writings of the Apostles in the New Testament.

     I am writing this because of the many teachings that are in the world today, and the fact that unless you really understand the LIBERTY that the Lord gives us, you will not understand how much love and trust He has for you. In marriage between a man and woman, trust is a big issue. With God, it is called faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God. A good man does not put a bunch of rules and regulations on his wife. He trusts her. A good woman doesn't mess around with other men, but is faithful to her husband. When true love is obtained, fear is not present, but faith, hope, and charity!

The scripture proclaims that it is your Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. (Luke 12:32).

   This teaching in no way is designed to teach anyone to do wrong. Paul explained this also in Romans 6:1-2. “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid, How shall we that are dead to sin continue any longer therein? If we make a mistake or do wrong, we are to repent and continually die out to sin.

        The law has an effect on the human soul. It will actually put a snare on you that will cause you to do the things that are contained in it. It works it's purpose to make you guilty as God designed it to do. Paul explained this in Romans chapter 7. Please read the entire chapter.

     This liberty that the Lord has given us is not to be used for an occasion to serve our flesh. (Galatians 5:13)  We understand from the teaching of Jesus that all the commandments in the law can be summed in in one statement: love thy neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-40) If we really love someone, we will not transgress against them. Therefore it is concluded that by love we fulfill the law of God. John also spoke that if we love Him, we will keep His commandments and they will not be grievous.(1 John 5:3) The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost that is given to us. It is therefore by love and faith that we please God, not by works of the law.

     It is important that we lay no burdens on the children of God that are not ordained by the Lord. When you do this to the children of God, you are just as guilty as one that teaches it is okay to sin because you're under grace. It works both ways. We must be very careful not to add to or take away from God's Word. The Apostle Paul was concerned about those that would enter in teaching the law, not understanding the things that they were doing. (1Timothy 1:5-10)The law is for the ungodly and sinners, not for the righteous.

     You ministers of God, heed this warning; Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. If your minister preaches anything other than this, you need to get away and find someone that will preach and practice the truth.
