On this sixth anniversary of the terrorist attacks upon America I am reflecting not only upon the thousands of civilians murdered by those men but upon the demon which spawned such an event.
Many would have us blame “Islamic Fascism” or “Radical Islam”. Those poor deluded practitioners of fundamental islam are not our enemies. They are deceived men and women who bought the lie that a god (notice the small “g”) named allah exists. Perhaps he does exist. But if so, allah does not exist as a true deity. Allah – if indeed there is a spiritual being who answers to that name is merely another fallen angel; a demon. As a demon allah then knows his destiny is not glory and the free dispensing of virgins to satisfy his lust infested minions. The judgement destiny of allah is hell.
In Matthew 25:41 we read in the parable that the king on the day of judgment will say to those on his left
“depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels…” (Emphasis Added)
The lesson therefore is clear. God (The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) has prepared an end for allah. God created an eternal fire which will never be extinguished; and in that eternal fire the demon allah will burn for an eternity of torment because of his rebellion against the Almighty God who is both loving and just as well as gracious and merciful.
It is said that the angel “gibril” (often assumed to be gabriel) brought the messages of the Quran to the prophet mohammed. I for one do not doubt that Mohammed was in fact visited by an angel who gave him these messages – though I do not believe it was the Gabriel who brought the message of the incarnation to Mary.
2 Corinthians 11:14 informs us that the devil himself “disguises himself as an angel of light.” If Mohammed was visited by an angel – than it was indeed a servant of the devil himself (if not the devil?) A demon delivered those messages to Mohammed and he, being decieved, recorded them as the Quran / Koran.
The rest of the passage in 2 Corinthians says,
“Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.” (Emphasis Added)
After God created the heavens and the earth, Satan rebelled and he took a rather large group of the other angels with him. God however did more than merely separate those fallen angels away from himself – he created a punishment appropriate for the rebellion they had pursued. God created hell as a place of punishment for Satan and his angels. It says so right there in Matthew 24:41.
So today as I remember the horrors of 9-11 I also remember the horrified demons who pleaded with Jesus,
“what business do we have with each other, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?”
The demons know that judgement has already been pronounced – they will suffer for eternity once their time has been fulfilled.
Do you understand the implications of the reason we have hell? Many times I hear people ask, “Why would such a loving God create a place of such unimaginable terror and torment for people he created in His own image?” It is a very powerful question but it is misguided. Take a moment to percieve the answer. God did not create hell for people. God created hell for the demons. Again look at Matthew 24:41. Hell was prepared for the devil and his angels; because of their rebellion.
The writer of Hebrews has said it:
“assuredly He [God] does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendant of Abraham.” (Hebrews 2:16)
God the Father sent his son so that he could provide help to the descendant of Abraham. Here I think he is talking about those who have faith. See Romans 4 where Paul tells us that the children of Abraham are those who have faith.
God gave everything in order to ensure that humans did not have to go to hell if they will only come in humble repentance and accept the sacrifice of the now risen savior.
Hell was created for the devil and his demons – it is the greatest tragedy of all eternity that any human will ever go there.
And so I am torn today with grief. I grieve the dead of course. But even more, I grieve the millions who have been decieved into following a fallen angel. The end will come just as it has been written. But my earnest plea and prayer is for the repentance and salvation of millions of Muslims.
Oh my God please draw them to yourself! Be merciful father for they are decieved. Drive out the demons who lie to them and help empower their hatred. Clear the pathway of heaven for them Father and help them – OH God help them to see Jesus! Do not let your enemy claim triumph as he takes millions to the grave, for the sake of your great name display Jesus for them all clearly to see – and bring salvation to the Muslim nations! I plead this in Jesus’ glorious name.
take this opprotunity to come to know (John 17:3) the true and loving God and let Allah be damned alone.
Even so, come Lord Jesus.
