The prophetic possibilities of the Perfect Storm
The perfect storm is when events collide at the perfect time that result in the most devastating calamity. This is a warning that the perfect storm may be forming on the horizon. The politicians in Washington are thumping their chests today that they gave this White House another $2 trillion of your money to spend before the 2012 elections with little to no cuts in spending except for the Defense Department. At the same time, organizations calling for a revolution to overthrow the US government are rising up in plain public view without so much as a footnote from the mainstream news media. The purposeful weakening of the United States, the strengthening of its radical enemies, the formation of a perfect storm.
One such organization held a Khilafa Conference in Chicago on June 26 entitled: Revolution in the Muslim World: From Tyranny to Triumph. The current Administration says Hizb Ut-Tahrir is a non violent Islamic group. But its goal is to overthrow the government and establish an Islamic Caliphate under Sharia Law. It has trained such notables as al Qaeda leaders Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Britain's National Union of Students says the group is "supporting terrorism and publishing material that incites racial hatred." The Heritage Foundation says it is working closely with the Muslim Brotherhood, the White House's new foreign policy partner.
Speakers at the Khilafa Conference used quotes from the Koran and preached revolution. Haitham Thbait said the "West is the enemy of all humanity...Let this revolution give birth to the final super power." Another speaker, Abu Atallah called for Islam to "be made supreme in the land. Islam will be the ruling system in the land...Under the Khilafah, we would be unified under one state. This united state would be ruled by what allah has revealed, not what others say...not even Shiek Obama, but what allah has revealed." Yes, he named the president. He said there would be no borders and that the military would be "in the hands of the Muslims" and "our lands" would be "taken back from the crusaders."
America is facing a most trying time. Massive debt is a permanent tax increase on all of its citizens. The government is stuck in a paradigm of spending the country into socialism. At the same time revolutionary Islamic cults are saying the timing is right for revolution, saying that politically unifying Islam in America will give the Muslim leaders the wealth to establish a worldwide Caliphate. America seems symbolic of Zion in Joel 2:1, "Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand." We must repent. We must pray. We must stand and overcome evil with good. You have the answer in Christ and the Great Commission, exercise it boldly.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
