“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” Marcus Tullius Cicero, 58 B.C. Speech in the Roman Senate
“ACT has posted a set of statistics that demonstrates the real violence against Muslims, it is not Jews, Christians or even America that is leading the pack in Muslim Genocide, but rather other Muslims. These numbers (almost 10 million killed by other Muslims) defy rationality, and surely anyone with half a brain can see where the real problem lies. Islam may or may not be a peaceful religion, but the people who dominate the religion and are the face that the world sees as representation of the religion, surely are far from peaceful.
Some 11,000,000 Muslims have been violently killed since 1948, of which 35,000, or 0.3 percent, died during the sixty years of fighting Israel, or just 1 out of every 315 Muslim fatalities. In contrast, over 90 percent of the 11 million who perished were killed by fellow Muslims.”
This is another example of Muslims killing Muslims. It’s by Yassin Musharbash at http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/, The title is, Surprising Study on Terrorism: Al-Qaida Kills Eight Times More Muslims Than Non-Muslims. It begins:
“Few would deny that Muslims too are victims of Islamist terror. But a new study by the Combating Terrorism Center in the US has shown that an overwhelming majority of al-Qaida victims are, in fact, co-religionists.
In the battle against unbelievers, can one also kill Muslims? Even the terror network al-Qaida is troubled by this question.
A leading al-Qaida ideologue for the terror network, Abu Yahya al-Libi, has developed his own theologically-based theory of collateral damage that allows militants to kill Muslims when it is unavoidable.
Even the Iraqi affiliates of Osama bin Laden’s terror group, who are known to be particularly bloodthirsty, claim that they too consider this question. For instance, in a message claiming responsibility for an August attack in Baghdad, the group wished those Sunnis injured in the “operation” a speedy recovery and expressed their hope that those killed would be accepted by God as “martyrs.”
But even as such apologetic communiqués from al-Qaida show the terror network stylizing itself as a defender of the true faith wrestling with religious concepts, they also make it look as though any dead Muslims are regretful but isolated cases. The facts, though, tell a different story.
Between 2004 and 2008, for example, al-Qaida claimed responsibility for 313 attacks, resulting in the deaths of 3,010 people. And even though these attacks include terrorist incidents in the West -- in Madrid in 2004 and in London in 2005 -- only 12 percent of those killed (371 deaths) were Westerners.
New Report Shows Many More Muslims Killed Than Non-Muslims
It is, of course, no surprise that al-Qaida kills more Muslims than non-Muslims -- particularly for people in the Islamic world. But a new report by the Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) at the United States' Military Academy at West Point in New York -- which has gathered together these and other relevant figures in one report ("Deadly Vanguards: A Study Of al-Qaida's Violence Against Muslims "), spells out the discrepancy in black and white.
The authors of the study admit that their report likely omits a number of Muslim victims. But that was the price of their rigorous methodology, used in an effort to avoid accusations of partisanship.
The researchers only counted the attacks for which al-Qaida claimed responsibility, thus preventing accusations that they were seeking to make al-Qaida look even worse than it is. Still, it is well known that al-Qaida does not claim responsibility for every attack perpetrated, meaning that many victims are likely left out of the report. Furthermore, the researchers only included attacks reported on by the Arab media and relied on the numbers they reported -- out of a conviction that the Arab media is more highly regarded in the Muslim world than the Western media. That, though, is not always the case.
Blurred Figures And Inexact Categories Are Problematic
The greatest potential for inaccuracy in the report, however, is the placing of victims into only one of two categories: Western or non-Western. The assumption being that Western would also mean non-Muslim and vice versa. The problems with such a system of categorization are myriad. Not all those living in the Muslim world are Muslim: In Iraq, al-Qaida has launched attacks against Kurds, Yazidi and Christians. Secondly, a lot of the Muslim victims are actually -- and deliberately -- Shiites. A Sunni group, al-Qaida considers the Shiites to be unbelievers.
Unfortunately news reports don’t tend to differentiate between Sunni and Shiite Muslims, explains Scott Helfstein, one of the writers of the report. This is also the reason for the non-Western and Western categories. “It is easy for journalists to count nationality but they rarely, if ever, identify religion,” Helfstein writes in reply to e-mailed questions from SPIEGEL ONLINE. The report’s writers were well aware of the problem. “But we were not able to find a way around it,” Helfstein notes.
Indeed, the report’s authors confront the shortcomings of their methodology head on. In one passage, they remove attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan from their calculations altogether, resulting in the share of Westerners killed in al-Qaida attacks rising to a much more significant 39 percent. If one removes the Madrid and London attacks from the statistics, though, the share of murdered Westerners drops back down to 13 percent.
Perhaps more significantly, if one only examines attacks in 2007 and disregards those having been perpetrated in Iraq and Afghanistan, the share of non-Westerners killed by al-Qaida rises to 99 percent. In 2008, it was 96 percent.
Non-Westerners 38 Times More Likely To Be Killed
Put another way, between 2006 and 2008, non-Westerners were 38 times more likely to be killed by an al-Qaida attack than Westerners.
“Since al-Qaida has limited capability to strike against its Western enemies, the group maintains its relevance by attacking countries with Muslim majorities,” the study concludes.
The conclusions reached by Helfstein and his co-authors are hardly world changing. They are valuable nonetheless, in that they provide a numerical foundation to the relationship between Muslim and non-Muslim al-Qaida victims.”
Another report from The Daily Beast gives similar information and statistics. This report is from Dean Obeidallah, a former lawyer turned political comedian. It’s titled , ‘ISIS’s Gruesome Muslim Death Toll. It begins:
“The group’s killing of Westerners gets attention. But ISIS has killed far more Muslims, and publicizing that fact would harm it more.
Last Thursday, the United Nations released a report that could provide us with one of the keys to defeating ISIS. Unfortunately, it received almost zero media attention.
What makes this 26-page report () so powerful is that it describes to us the gruesome circumstances in which ISIS has killed fellow Muslims. We are talking beheadings, killing of women for objecting to ISIS’ policies, and executing Sunni Muslim clerics for refusing to swear allegiance to ISIS.
Why is this important? This information can hopefully help dissuade other Muslims from joining or financially supporting ISIS. And it may even persuade other Muslim countries to join or increase their efforts in fighting ISIS. The reason being that slaughtering fellow Muslims is seen as universally wrong across the Muslim world and as a violation of Islamic values. In fact, Al Qaeda has even publicly criticized ISIS for this very conduct.
Now the report also details ISIS’ horrific actions against Christians, Yazidis, and other minorities. But these events—along with the grisly beheadings of American journalists and Western aid workers- have been covered extensively by our media.
The killing of Muslims has not, and part of the reason may be because we lacked facts surrounding those events. After all, ISIS releases videos of its gruesome actions that it wants the world media to discuss but doesn’t publicize events it understands can hurt its cause.
This report changes that. It provides us with evidence we were missing about the specifics of ISIS’ actions towards Muslims. This investigation, undertaken by UN’s Human Rights Office together with the UN’s Assistance Mission for Iraq, conducted more than 500 interviews with witnesses and visited locations across Iraq to examine how many civilians were killed in Iraq between July and September of this year.
What did the UN find? ISIS had “carried out attacks deliberately and systematically targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure, with the intention of killing and wounding civilians.” The UN concluded that in the first eight months of 2014, at least 9,347 civilians had been killed and at least 17,386 wounded. While all these deaths are not attributable to ISIS alone, ISIS is identified as the primary actor. (The report also documents what could be considered war crimes committed by the Iraqi military.)
Here are a few examples from the report to give you an idea of the way ISIS has methodically slaughtered Muslims:
-On September 5, ISIS executed three Sunni women in Mosul. What was their “crime”? They refused to provide medical care to ISIS fighters.
- On September 9, ISIS executed a Sunni Imam in western Mosul for refusing to swear loyalty to ISIS.
- On August 2, a man from the Salah ad Din province was abducted and beheaded for refusing to swear allegiance to ISIS.
-On August 19, a female Muslim doctor south of Mosul was killed for organizing a protest to object to ISIS’ mandate that female doctors cover their faces with religious veils when treating patients.
-On August 31, 19 Sunni Muslim men were executed in Saadiya for refusing to swear allegiance to ISIS.
-On July 22, a Sunni Imam in Eastern Baquba was killed for simply denouncing ISIS.
-On September 9, ISIS executed two Muslim women by shooting them in the back of the head. Their exact “crime” was not known.
And the list goes on from ISIS slaughtering 1,500 Iraqi soldiers in June to blowing up numerous Sunni mosques because apparently the leaders of those mosques refused to swear loyalty to ISIS.
Here’s the thing: The leaders of ISIS are very aware that the killing of fellow Muslims—especially Sunnis- could hurt their cause in attracting support from the Sunni Muslim world. In fact, ISIS is so concerned about the possible backlash that the group’s leaders addressed this subject ( ) in the latest issue of its online magazine.
In between its threats against Obama and promises of a great life for Muslims in their new so-called caliphate, ISIS offered justifications for killing fellow Muslims. For example, they claim that some Muslims ambushed ISIS fighters, took them hostage and “and then tortured, amputated, and executed prisoners.” They even alleged that some of the Sunni Muslims they killed were “drowning” in alcohol and drugs and had more than four wives.
But when you read the details of the UN report, you realize the common thread in ISIS’ killings of Muslims has nothing to do with Islam. It has to do with absolute power. It doesn’t matter if you are a Sunni cleric or a Christian woman, your choice is to submit to ISIS or die.
I wish the media would give more coverage to ISIS’ crimes against Muslims. The publicity would hurt the group’s cause tremendously, and it could also make the case to my fellow Americas that this fight is not Islam versus the West. Rather, it’s everyone who doesn’t want to live under ISIS’ brutal dictatorship versus ISIS.
And those Muslims who gave their lives fighting against or refusing to give into ISIS in our common struggle should be recognized in the media for their bravery. It would be very powerful to see images in our media of the Muslims killed by ISIS, not just Westerners.
Going forward in our war against ISIS, sadly we will likely see more gruesome acts perpetrated by them against Americans. These acts will understandably receive extensive media coverage.
But that is only one part of the story in our fight versus ISIS. The Muslims being slaughtered by ISIS on a daily basis is the other, bigger part. And it’s this other part of the story that might just hold the key to defeating ISIS.” End of article.
As described above, Muslims have different reasons for killing other Muslims. Some are killed by disregard of their lives when there’s a mass killing during another targeted event such as the twin towers in New York. Muslims were also killed during that horrendous event. Many others are killed individually for more personal reasons, such as not swearing allegiance to ISIS. Then there’s the old traditional reason; the difference in Sunni and Shiite beliefs. Simply explained; it’s similar to the difference in belief between Christians and Jews. Christians believe the Savior, the Messiah, arrived 2000 years ago in the form of Jesus. Jews do not share that view. They are still waiting for the first arrival of the Messiah.
Comparatively, The Sunni are still waiting for their savior, their Mahdi, to arrive the first time. The Shiite believe the Mahdi has already arrived and is waiting in ‘occultation’ to show himself to make the world ‘pure;’ pure Muslim. In general, the term occultation means he is hiding somewhere waiting for the right time to show himself. This is the great divide of the two Islamic beliefs. And, to some degree, this similar concept still keeps many Jews and Christians apart.
In all likelihood, since Islam was created 700 years after Christ’s arrival, Muslims copied those dividing concepts; as they copied many of the ideas and concepts described and defined in the Bible. They even claim to be one of the three ‘Abrahamic religions, as they claim to be descended from Abraham and Ishmael. This has been proven to be false, since an Arabic name was substituted in the ‘Begats’ in the Bible. These references provide more information about that false claim by Muslims:
As I wrote earlier, Muslims killing Muslims is described in the Bible. It was described 700 years before the arrival of Islam upon the earth ‘to take peace from the earth.’ Let’s explore that in the next chapter.
Riding the Red Horse
The explanation and the description of the rider who was given ‘power to take peace from the earth…and that they should kill one another’ should attract the attention of Muslims, Atheists, and others who do not believe in God, the Bible, or Words in the Bible. The written information is too coherent and clear to be ignored or considered a fanciful tale. One who ignores this information as the Word of God does so at great peril to his or her salvation. So please read carefully and objectively as I put the pieces of this puzzle together.
To begin, we must accept that the Book of Revelation is interconnected and cross-referenced throughout. In other words, clarity is gained by applying the words in one section to words in another section. Then the meaning is made crystal clear. So, let’s begin there; to demonstrate that God’s Word is to be made ‘crystal clear.’ It begins in Chapter 4, Verse 5:
“And out of the throne proceeded lightenings and thunderings and voices; and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. 6) And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.”
At first, these two verses seem too cryptic to interpret, but with information given later, they make perfect sense. This is the case with other cryptic verses; they must have other parts to glue the pieces together.
In this case two important presentations are made. First, is that the four beasts had eyes before and behind, and they were looking into a sea of glass that looked like crystal. Simply stated; they could see what happened in the past and what would happen in the future. And to them, their view was ‘crystal clear.’ Their infallible view was given to them by God. They would present those crystal clear views in a future chapter – 6. Before we proceed to Chapter 6, however, let’s explore the other revelation made here.
This is the information given in Verse 5, about the seven lamps of fire being the seven Spirits of God. Those seven Spirits of God in this verse seem to suggest those are the seven Spirits only within God. Further research suggests otherwise. Those seven Spirits are to be shared by anyone worthy to accept them by accepting the Word of God. How do we know that? Let’s move forward to Chapter 5, Verse 6, which says:
“And I beheld, and, lo in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.”
A reasonable interpretation of this verse would suggest Jesus, the Lamb, was slain to bring the seven Spirits of God into the earthly realm. He sacrificed to share those Spirits with humankind; “which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” My interpretation, which I consider reasonable, is that God allows His followers to also share those seven Spirits. If you believe in God, you possess those seven Spirits within your subconscious. Those seven Spirits guide one to walk in the steps of Christ. Now, what are those seven Spirits? Chapter 5, Verse12 presents that list of seven:
“Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.”
This verse says Jesus was slain to receive those seven Spirits; it doesn’t say others would or could receive them. That information was written in Verse 6, “which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” God sacrificed his Son, to send those seven Spirits ‘forth into all the earth so that we might be blessed with those Spirits.’ The blessing of those seven Spirits allows Christians to walk in the Light of God.
Now, remember; there were four beasts standing at the throne who could see everything past and future ‘crystal clear.’ What did they see? What they saw is explained in Chapter 6.
The first beast saw a rider on a white horse. He had a bow, and a crown was given unto him ‘and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.’ This is clearly a representation of Christ. Some erroneously interpret this rider as Satan. But, Satan would not be riding a white horse. Information presented in later chapters clears up this question. The rider of the white horse represents Christ.
The second beast saw a rider on a red horse and said, “Come and see.” What John saw in his vision was that rider on a red horse. This is the entirety of his vision as given in Verse 4:
“And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”
This verse is the entirety of chapter 6 that discusses the red horse and the rider who goes forth to kill one another. There is no further explanation as to what that means. It begs an answer to the question; how and why does one rider kill one another if there is only one rider? Since it would be futile to try to interpret the meaning of this verse within itself, we must look elsewhere for that answer. And, yes, that answer does exist. Why? Because God’s purpose for giving this revelation to Apostle John was to ‘reveal.’
Now, at this time Atheists might say this is a useless verse, since there is no such thing or person as ‘God.’ And, since writings in Revelation are becoming clearer and clearer as time passes, Muslims have recently claimed that Revelation was written after Islam rose as a religion for the single purpose of attacking Islam. This is a futile Islamic claim, since it’s well known for centuries that Revelation was written by John while he was exiled on the Island of Patmos. Patmos is just off the Turkish coast near what was at that time the church at Ephesus. The ruins of a basilica of ‘Saint John’ still exists at the ruins of Ephesus even today. Revelation was written two thousand years ago. Islam was not founded until seven hundred years later. Islam practices and promotes ‘taqiyya’ lies to promote and protect their false religion. They are allowed by their religion to defend it with any words, true or false. How, therefore, can any of their claims be trusted? This link explains those ruins in Ephesus:
Obviously, Islamic leaders realized the Book of Revelation exposed their false religion for what it really is and tried to discredit that writing. It didn’t work. Revelation totally exposes Islam’s deception and its false religion. But their deceptions and false claims are not new. God knew they would occur before he gave John the words to write those seven letters to the seven churches in Asia, now Turkey. Caution to beware of those false prophets and prophetesses was given in those letters addressed to those seven churches; but meant and directed to ‘all churches.’ This includes us at our current time; especially us at our current time now that Islam has exposed its deadly threat to harmony and peace in the world. So, let’s examine His warnings to us in those letters.
Since those letters are addressed to the seven churches in Asia, most readers simply take for granted they were addressed only for those churches. But, a message in Chapter 1 suggests otherwise. During Christ’s instructions to John about those letters, He included in Verse 19, “Write the things which thou has seen (the visions) and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.” Those things ‘which shall be hereafter’ include those things that have happened since John wrote Revelation. It also includes those things that have not yet happened; such as the great war between God’s forces and Satan’s forces, represented by Islam. Keeping that in mind, let’s examine the first prophesy to beware of false prophets. That was revealed, beginning in Verse 2, in the letter to the first church, Ephesus:
“I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil; and thou has tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars.” The letter ends with a warning, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”
Two points are made in this letter to Ephesus. First, those apostles who followed Jesus were not liars. This letter is the first to say ‘beware of the antichrist.’ Muhammad was the first false prophet to blaspheme Christ. He claimed to replace Christ as the senior prophet. Here, Christ identified him as ‘evil.’ This was the first warning. Second, the point about the ‘tree of life’ is explained in Chapter 22, Verse 2:
“In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month; and the leaves of thee tree were for the healing of the nations.”
Another important point to glean from this verse is that the earth will not be destroyed after that great battle, or during that time. This verse proclaims nations will still exist. If nations still exist then by reference, the world must still exist. It will just be more peaceful, in paradise, without Islam to continue their war against God in Heaven; and everyone else. And, that similar warning is given again in the very next letter, to Smyrna. This is in Verse9:
“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thy art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” Again, he adds that familiar warning to all churches in Verse 11, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.”
Again, this is pointing the finger directly at Islam. Islam claims to be descended from Jews, Abraham, but they are not. Christ recognized this would happen 700 years before it happened. And it was written, further validating that the writing of Revelation was real, and the purpose was real; to reveal what would happen, and who would be the source of that great danger. The next letter, to Pergamos, is more complicated, but it also brings Islam into the trail of blasphemy, idolatry and fornication; the only religion, or cult, that does. This description begins in Verse 13:
“I know thy works, and where thy dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is; and thou holdest fast my name, and has not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.” Then Verse 14 introduces the doctrine of Balaam and eating things sacrificed unto idols ‘and to commit fornication.’
Briefly, Balaam was a ‘prophet’ during the time Jews fled Egypt; they went to King Balac’s country. To rid them, Balac sent for Balaam to cast a spell upon the Jews. This includes the story of Balaam’s mule talking to Balaam discouraging him from complying. Finally, Balaam got past the mules’ objections and reached Balac’s country. The spell was cast to rid the Jews when Balaam taught them idol worship. This is also a side reference to the fact that Muslims eat food sacrificed to an idol, that moon-god rock, housed in the Kabba in Mecca. It’s part of a black meteorite, assumed by moon god worshippers to have been send down to them from the moon. A non-Muslim is not allowed to see it. Animals must be killed facing that rock to make it acceptable for Muslims to eat – sacrificed to that idol. ‘Satan’s seat’ identifies the icon of a serpent that adorns the Aesclepion, an ancient medical center built by an Attalus prince who copied the one in Greece he earlier visited to heal his battle wounds.
In that same verse and in Verse 15, there’s also the mention of fornication and the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes. The association between Islam and fornication is quite simple. Muslims are allowed to have many wives, Muhammad had 17, and Muslims are allowed to marry young girls. Can anyone deny those two acts are acts of pure fornication? Keep this fact in mind as we give further association with Islam and one rider killing one another, especially as it’s further explained in Chapter 17.
Regarding the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, this is referring to a doctrine of one Nicolas who was part of a small group helping widows of martyrs slain for serving Christ. This is the doctrine of the body and Spirit being separate entities. Being separate, this allows one to sin with the body, but yet still be saved through acceptance of Christ with the Spirit. An example hinted at in other references is one act of fornication – homosexuality. Again, Verse 17 gives that universal caution, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” The clearest introduction of how one rider will kill one another is in the next letter; to Thyatira.
Still in Chapter 2, Verse 18 describes the breath and scope of Christ’s vision, “And unto the angel (leader) of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass.” This is clearly saying he can see all things and will be anywhere and everywhere. Then the main message for Thyatira regarding that one rider begins in Verse20:
“Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.” The next verse continues, “And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.” Now, remember this verse because it helps tie later verses to that one rider. Then Verse 22 is the one that glues all the other verses together. While reading this verse please keep in mind this is one of the references that describes a religion and a prophet (Islam and Muhammad.) The name, Jezebel is only a metaphor, such as ‘woman’ and ‘Babylon’ which also describe the totality of Islam. Verses 22-23:
“Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.” This chapter ends with that familiar warning, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”
The letter to the church at Philadelphia is in Chapter 3. In verse 7 He proclaims that He is the one who is holy and true, and has the key of David (as opposed to those other liars who claim that status.) Then, in Verse 9 he again exposes those liars as false Jews:
“Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” The next verse in this letter also ended with that same familiar caution. The next verse refers to the time of temptation by John to admire the Islamic religion. That’s detailed in verses 6 and 7 of Chapter 17.
In summary, those seven letters to the seven churches in Asia were not written specifically for those seven churches. They simply served as a metaphor for all of God’s churches of all time. Much of the material in those letters was focused at false prophets, false Jews, and false apostles, with a warning to remain on guard not to be ‘seduced’ by their appeal. Much of the information in those letters did not and could not have applied at the time they were written, as the greatest false prophet, Muhammad, did not appear until seven hundred years later. Now, let’s move forward to Revelation’s Chapter 17 to tie all the loose ends together; proving how and who will go forward as one rider on the red horse to ‘kill one another.’
Riding the Scarlet-Colored Beast
Before we begin this discussion, it’s important first to interpret how we understand that in Revelation the term ‘woman’ represents a religion. This is made clear in Chapter 12. Chapter 12 introduces Christianity and gives a short story of Satan trying to kill Jesus, and Christianity, when Jesus was born to create that woman, Christianity.
The first two verses describe the arrival of a woman with a child ‘travailing in birth and pained to be delivered.’ Verse 5 adds, “And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.” Verse 4 said the dragon (Satan) stood before the woman ready to devour her child as soon as it was born. Clearly, this was King Herod’s attempt to kill Jesus to keep him from becoming ‘King of the Jews.’ His attempt failed and verse 6 explains what happened next:
“And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.” When Herod’s attempt failed, Mary and Joseph carried Jesus into Egypt for his safety. The next few verses explain what happened when Michael and his angels removed Satan from Heaven:
Verse 12: “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 13) And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which bought forth the man child.” The next verse, Verse 14, is the most revealing information in the entirety of Revelation to establish a timeline of place, event, and understanding that allows clarity of Revelation:
“And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”
This verse describes the time Constantine the ‘Great’ adopted Christianity into the Roman Empire. At that time, the symbol for Rome was an eagle with two prominent wings. A staff with this eagle went ahead of Constantine’s marching troops. As a result of winning the Battle of Milvian Bridge, having the Christian cross on the shields of his army, Constantine adopted the religion and established the Roman Catholic Church. Approximately 350 AD. The church was protected by Rome another ‘time, times, and half a time’ which equaled the prior 350 years. Christianity was again attacked by the dragon when Islam was created approximately 700 AD. The last verse in Chapter 12 explains what happened at that time; when Islam rose:
“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” Christians of today are the remnants of her seed; Christianity. And that dragon continues to war against Christians and others, under the umbrella of Satan’s force named Islam.
So how does all this information explain how one rider on the red horse will ‘kill one another?’ We now have enough background information to make sense and understanding to the verses in Chapter 17; which will give that answer. First, let’s remember those words in the letter to the church at Thyatira regarding Jezebel:
“Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death.”
We see this false prophetess, Jezebel, appear again in the first verses of Chapter 17, representing Islam. It begins:
“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters (representing world-wide) 2) With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
In that letter to Thyatira, He stated, “And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.” In that letter to Thyatira, God said what he would do; His Words in Chapter 17 explained the results of his promise. This moves us closer to understanding how one rider on a red horse can kill one another. That rider is seen again as a woman (religion) riding a scarlet colored beast in Chapter 17:
Verse 3 continues as John speaks from his vision; “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” The seven heads represent the whole world, the seven continents. The ten horns represent the ten kingdoms of Islam. The next verses reveal two great mysteries of the Bible. First, the wealth source of Islam, that rider, and who or what is Babylon. Many falsely interpret Babylon as the renewal of the original city of Babel and the ancient Babylon. In reality, this Babylon is a metaphor for Jezebel, which is a joint metaphor for Islam. Let’s continue with Verse 4:
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hands full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.”
Okay; the letter to Thyatira associated Jezebel with fornication. This verse also associates that same woman, riding the scarlet colored beast with fornication. Should not the rider of the red horse also be considered the rider of the scarlet (red) colored beast? These are all referencing the same entity; that woman Islam. Now, let’s consider the source of wealth of all those items described in Verse 4. That verse introduces purple and scarlet colour, but it doesn’t reveal the item that’s scarlet and purple. The item John is describing here can be nothing other than oil. The base color of red and scarlet colors is amber. Amber is the pure color of oil. In John’s vision he didn’t know how to specify what he witnessed, oil, so he described it as best he could by the colors; scarlet and purple. The next two verses finally explain the identity of Jezebel, the rider of the red horse, and the woman riding the scarlet coloured beast:
“And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth. 6) And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.”
These two verses answer two great questions of ‘mystery.’ First, it states that there are two parts of Babylon; one the mother, the other her harlots. It further clearly defines these two as one; as they are drunken with the blood of the saints and the martyrs of Jesus. No other religion fills that horrible description; only Islam. Islam’s harlots draw the blood; while the mother condones it and is also drunken with the same blood. Those harlots are those in our current times identified as ‘Islamic terrorists.’
Second, it gives an example that explains why Christians and others of God must not be beguiled with her wonderful deceptions, as John ‘wondered with great admiration.’ The caution to avoid that admiration is also in the letter to Thyatira. Verse 20 cautions not to sufferest (agree with and accept) that woman:
“Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.”
This prior information sets the stage to answer the questions: how and why does and can one rider on one red horse kill one another; and, how does God kill Jezebel’s children as described in that letter to Thyatira. The remainder of Chapter 17, beginning with Verse12 answers these two questions:
“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13) These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 14) These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called chosen and faithful. 15) And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.”
Waters are often the metaphor for humankind. ‘Fountains of waters’ is the metaphor for the youth of society. ‘Fountains of waters’ describe the drug problem of the youth of our society when they suffer the effects of that star called ‘Wormwood’ in Chapter 8, Verse10. Let’s continue, beginning with Verse 16:
“And the ten horns (kingdoms) which thou sawest upon the beast (Islam,) these shall hate the whore (Islam’s harlot terrorists,) and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17) For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18) And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”
The answer to those two questions have been revealed with a culmination of all the parts in Chapter 17. First, that rider of the red horse is Islam. Islam is divided into two entities. First is mother Islam, also known in Revelation as Jezebel, Babylon, and the beast. Her daughter, also known as the whore, are the terrorists whose only aim is to spill the blood of the saints and the martyrs of Jesus. This whore is often identified as ‘The Whore of Babylon’ but without this clear and deadly identity. This whore simply identifies the ‘terrorist’ part of Islam.
The second question of ‘how does God kill Jezebel’s children’ is answered in Verse 17, above: “For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will.” Simply, His will is fulfilled by Muslims killing Muslims. They always have and they always will, until they are defeated, altogether, and the earth may once again become peaceful. That’s the promise of the Book of Revelation. It’s not to describe the end of the earth, although there will be times of great tribulation as we progress though the next stage described therein. There is hope for world peace. That will be explained next.
How does one rider on a red horse kill one another? This question has been asked and answered. That rider is the beast, Islam. The mother is identified in Chapter 17 as mystery Babylon, the mother of harlots. While Islam rides the red horse she and her harlots kill one another. This identity considers, of course, that both parts are considered as the whole of Islam. Both parts, the mother and the harlot, are ‘drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.’ But, how is this so? Isn’t Islam the religion of ‘peace?’ There is an answer to this question. It comes in Daniel, Chapter 8, Verses 23-25:
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.”
(An interpretation: ‘At the latter time of their kingdom’ likely means when that great war between good and evil begins. The signing of the Iranian Nuclear Deal is a sign that it will begin soon ‘in the midst of seven years’ as reported in Daniel 9:27. ‘When the transgressors are come to the full’ likely means when Islam is influential world-wide. ‘And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power’ certainly would suggest a person in a powerful position, as with the President of the United States, but would have no personal physical power such as a military fighter. ‘He shall also stand up against the Prince of princes, but he shall be broken without hand’ requires an unusual view. First, in the Bible; when the ‘Prince’ is named beginning with a capital letter, that refers to Christ. When it’s used in lower case, that refers to Satan. Obama ‘stands up against the Prince of princes’ when he praises Muhammad and Islam representing the prince, Satan.)
By peace, Islam shall destroy many. Is this what is meant by ‘peace’ when spoken by Muslims? Perhaps one Muslim is peaceful. But, what about two; what about four; what about hundreds in one location. Are they then still peaceful? History and events prove they are not. When gathered and consolidated, they become that one rider on that red horse. Information at the following link explains the movement from ‘peace’ to ‘deadly horror.’
There are phases of radical Islamization. One source of this information is at this site. Information at this site is not copyrighted:
Below is a brief summary of the stages of Islamization from this link. It explains the ‘peaceful to radical’ progression of Islam.
“Four Stages of Islamic Treachery: Islamist Tactics Towards Non-Islamic Societies by Anonymous, 01 Sep, 2007. Based On The Evidence Of 1200 Years Of Islamic History:
STAGE ONE: INFILTRATION (These are those Muslims characterized as ‘peaceful.’)
First migration wave to target non-Muslim society. Appeal for humanitarian tolerance from the target non-Muslim society. Characterized by professed tolerance of others and their beliefs. Attempts to portray Islam as a peaceful religion and Muslims as victims of misunderstanding and racism. Images of women and children used to portray Muslims. Establishment of mosques as power bases (today globally funded by Gulf countries oil revenue). (Mosques are safe havens for Jihadi recruitment and subversive projects). Muslim leaders promote large push for increased Muslim births in target non-Muslim society to increase native Muslim population. Misrepresentation of their intentions or aims as a cover up for clandestine operations.
STAGE TWO: CONSOLIDATION OF POWER
Proselytizing efforts increase. Establishment and recruitment of fundamentalist Jihadi cells. Efforts to convert alienated segments of the population of target non-Muslim society to Islam. Revisionist efforts to Islamize history. Efforts to destroy all evidence of incriminating historical evidence and sources that reveal true character of Islamism. Intellectual Jihad to discredit non-Muslim culture. Assault on cultural assumptions and icons of the non-Muslim world, such as democracy, law and science. Increased dissemination of anti-western propaganda and anti-western psychological warfare.
Efforts to recruit allies who share similar goals (Communists, socialists, anti westerns activists, anti-globalists, anarchists). Alliances with the enemies of the Western society particularly anti capitalism leftists. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” Attempts to indoctrinate children to Islamist viewpoint. Efforts to infiltrate education system to propagate pro-Islamic points of view. Increased efforts to intimidate, silence and eliminate non-Muslim intellectuals and leaders.
Efforts to introduce blasphemy laws into non-Muslim society in order to silence critics. Continued focus on enlarging Muslim population by increasing Muslim births and migration to target non-Muslim society. Use of first and second generation Muslim citizens of target non-Muslim society as Jihadist foot soldiers and public fronts. Use of charities to recruit supporters. Use of crime and fraud to obtain funds to finance activities. Covert efforts to bring about the destruction of non-Muslim society from within. Development of Muslim political base in target non-Muslim society.
Efforts to penetrate political and legal structure of country so as to support Islamic growth from within. Use of bribes and blackmail of non-Muslim authorities to get them to disregard establishment of subversive activities. Islamic Financial networks strengthened to fund political growth, large acquisition of land and resources by any means. (Today they are funded by Muslim charities; Gulf countries Oil revenue and criminal activities). Highly visible assassination of critics aimed to intimidate opposition. Tolerance of non-Muslims diminishes and greater demands are placed upon Muslims to adopt strict Islamic conduct. Clandestine amassing of weapons and explosives stores in hidden locations in target non-Muslim society. Continuous and covert attacks and challenges against target non-Muslim society leaders and religious symbols.
Overt disregard and rejection of target non-Muslim society’s legal system and culture. Efforts to undermine and destroy power base of non-Muslim religions such as Jews, Christians, Hindus or Buddhists in target non-Muslim society. Efforts to destroy the social structure of the country and bring the downfall of non-Muslim government.Use of Islamic gangs in campaign of fear and terror against Jews, Christians, Hindus and non-Muslims to reduce their populations and influence in the target non-Muslim society.
STAGE THREE: OPEN WAR WITH TARGET NON-ISLAMIST SOCIETY’S LEADERSHIP AND CULTURE
Large-scale destruction of population, assassinations, killings, bombings. Intentional efforts to spread chaos in the target country to undermine its government and culture. Acts of barbarity and fierceness as a deliberate policy intended to foster submission of opponents. Open and covert efforts to cause economic collapse of the society. All opposition, no matter what kind, is challenged and either eradicated or silenced.
Widespread ethnic cleansing with Islamic militias. Rejection and defiance of target society secular laws or culture. Murder of all opposition political, religious and intellectual leaders of target society. Murder of all moderate Muslim intellectuals who envision other alternatives to radical Islam. Toppling of government and usurpation of political power. Imposition of Sharia law. Mass execution of non-Muslims, ethnic cleansing.
STAGE FOUR: ISLAMIC THEOCRACY
The Qur’an and the Sharia becomes the “law of the land. “ All non-Islamic human rights cancelled. Freedom of speech and the press eradicated. All Religions other than Islam are forbidden and destroyed. Enslavement and genocide of non-Muslim population. Destruction of all evidence of non-Muslim culture, groups and symbols in country.” End of Stages article.
1It would also be appropriate at this time to ask another question. That is: Is it not an act of hate against our ‘brothers’ not to invite them in (referring to all the Muslim refugees fleeing the terror in the Middle East) instead of inviting them into our country? The Bible also has a very clear answer to this question. It comes from Second John, Verses 7-11:
“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed. For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”
Although Islam claims to be a religion of peace, many people of the earth are destroyed by that deceitful claim. As followers and worshippers of Satan their truth and honor are guided by their charge by Satan to end God’s time in Heaven. They will say any words and make any claim to accomplish that goal.
Yes, Islam, Babylon and her harlot, ride the red horse as one. They go forth to kill one another, by the will of God, and they go forth to be ‘drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. Islam is one.
God bless America, and protect Israel.

The rider of the red horse introduced in the Bible’s Book of Revelation is described as going forth to kill one another. How is that possible? How can one rider kill one another without some act of weird suicide? This book answers this question in such a way that Atheists and others who refuse to accept the Word of God might reconsider their beliefs. God’s Words continue to offer salvation for anyone and everyone. It would also be appropriate at this place and time to ask another question. That is: Is it not an act of hate against our ‘brothers’ not to invite them in (referring to all the Muslim refugees fleeing the terror in the Middle East) instead of inviting them into our country? The Bible also has a very clear answer to this question. It comes from Second John, Verses 7-11: “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed. For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” Although Islam claims to be a religion of peace, many people of the earth are destroyed by that deceitful claim. As followers and worshipers of Satan their truth and honor are guided by their charge from Satan to end God’s time in Heaven. They will say any words and make any claim to accomplish that goal. Yes, Islam, Jezebel, Babylon, and her harlot, ride the red horse as one. They go forth to kill one another, by the will of God; and they go forth to be ‘drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.’ Islam is one. Although Islam is guided by the rule of Satan, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton strive to invite thousands more into our peaceful land to destroy us. God bless America and protect Israel from their dangerous folly.
