Satan’s Apostate Pulpit :: by Dan Payne

Many watchmen on the wall understand that the prophecies contained in the books of Daniel and Revelation point to a future one-world government and a one-world apostate religion. Currently, true Islam [1] is capturing the attention of the world at large.

The useful idiots that call themselves the Islamic State and or The Caliphate [1] are currently being used by Satan to bring about a false Islam that will be fit for a seat at the table of apostate religion. It will not be radical or fundamental Islam [2] that has a seat at the head table; it will be false Islam, aka “peaceful” Islam.

Fundamental Christianity will not join with other religions and neither will fundamental Islam. False Christianity and false Islam are another story altogether.

The powers that be, according to the will of the general public, will purge the brutal brand of extreme Islam currently seen in places like Syria and Iraq, and also on the doorstep of Israel, from public view. So called “peaceful” Islam which is really a false Islam will promptly fill its void and take its place next to false Christianity.

The main goal of this mission is to somehow unite false Islam with Israel to facilitate the signing of the false peace treaty between Israel and the rest of the world (Daniel 9:27). For Satan’s master plan of a one-world apostate religion to become a reality, a complete purge of fundamental Islam and fundamental Christianity must take place.

Fundamental Judaism has no place for other gods either so fundamental Judaism most likely will not be in control of Israel when the covenant is confirmed with the many (Daniel 9:27). I see no other way the Third Temple will be allowed to be built on the Temple Mount aside from the complete destruction of radical Islam or a false peace with a false Islam.

Recently, a British citizen who is now “fighting” in Iraq and Syria was asked by a news reporter to give his reaction to statements that were made by a certain high ranking British imam. After hearing that the imam condemned the actions of ISIS as brutal and against true Islam, the jihadist said that the imam and all of his followers are apostates. I couldn’t agree more [2].

By the way, the reporter also asked the jihadist if he agreed with the heartless and barbaric act of beheading and if he would actually participate in such a brutal act. His response was that he would be “honored” to participate in such a “blessed” act, particularly against a Syrian or an American soldier. Yes he called it an “honorable” and “blessed act” (just F.Y.I.).

Thankfully, not all people who claim to be Muslim agree with the demonically brutal actions of ISIS. I assume, although I really have no idea, that most people on earth do not have the will to physically participate in the brutal and cruel actions of the Islamic State. However, when demons use their strongest influences currently allowable by the Holy Spirit under this Age of Grace, Satan can move entire groups of people to do his will thereby rendering them fully capable of physically reproducing the brutality of ISIS.

Let me explain:

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10).

All of mankind is unrighteous apart from God. God declares our own “righteousness” as being like puss filled rags (Isaiah 64:6). If an individual chooses to accept the righteousness of Jesus Christ, it is only then that they are declared righteous by the Father:

“But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness” (Romans 4:5).

The believer is also sealed and protected by the Holy Spirit:

“In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory” (Ephesians 1:13-14).

It is not because of our works but because of our belief that we are declared righteous and protected by God’s Holy Spirit. Likewise, if an individual rejects the righteousness of Jesus Christ they are also rejecting the Holy Spirit and thereby they will be without His protection. All people who reject Jesus Christ are susceptible of being directly used by demonic forces.

Satan and his generals have a particular master plan and an end goal in mind. They have been and are continuing to use particular groups of people as they see fit. The larger a group’s denial of the protection of the Holy Spirit, the more useful that group is as a whole to enact the will of Satan.

There is a stark contrast between Christianity and Islam as far as being united in purpose for Satan and against God. Thankfully, due to the voice of the true church, the false church is not as usefully united in Satan’s purposes as it will be after the Rapture of the true church. When the true Christians who are currently on earth are removed, the ranks of the false church will then be able to march in lock step with their leader, unabated.

As a particular brand of false Christianity is taking clearer shape each and every day, so also will a false Islam begin to take shape. Again, as the British jihadist said, they’re all apostates who disagree with the actions of ISIS, they’re not true Muslims. The more than 400,000 Muslims who live in Chicago and the hundreds of thousands who live elsewhere throughout America will be turned into “peaceful” Muslims under the Antichrist’s plan for a false Islam.

It is my strongest belief that we do not have to worry about Sharia Law becoming a reality in America.

Satan knows full well where his ultimate seat will be: “sitting in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God”(2 Thessalonians 2:4). Satan has head-knowledge of the Word of God backwards and forwards and many ways in between. That is how the words of Jesus and His Apostles and prophets contained in the Old and New Testaments can be so twisted as to bring about so many false doctrines and so much confusion.

Of course, Satan has no heart knowledge of God’s precious grace and truth. However, again Satan knows he will end-up sitting in the newly built Third Temple in Jerusalem at the middle of the Tribulation. Does Satan think he can alter the outcome of God’s plan of final defeat for him? Yes, he does, but that does not change the fact that he knows he will claim to be Jesus Christ, the world’s messiah.

Is anyone else out there wondering what exactly is up with our president? I can honestly say that sometimes I’m baffled by the actions of the Obama Administration. At times, it is beyond surreal and Orwellian. All I can do is affirm that I believe in the truth of what God has already revealed to us in His Word as to what will happen during the Tribulation.

In congruence with the prophetic knowledge God has provided for us in His Word, all I can do is offer my best opinion as to what is happening right now in relation to that future prophetic truth.

Example: It may just be that Obama’s complete inaction against the Islamic State while it is still metastasizing in Iraq and Syria, is to bring about the all-out attacks prophesied against Israel as recorded in Ezekiel 38 and Psalm 83, or to bring about the Burden of Damascus prophesied in Isaiah 17 [3].

Since the Islamic State seems to be completely demon possessed it is likely that they will physically try to conquer all the way to Jerusalem, just so long as the powers that be wait long enough before wiping them out. God uses evil rulers of all stripes to fulfill His purposes.

“For the Scripture says to the Pharaoh, ‘For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth’” (Romans 9:17).


[1] The closer a group follows the “holy” book of Islam, the more extreme and brutal that group will be. Any Islamic group that claims to offer peace to unbelievers is actually practicing apostasy according to the Koran.

[2] ISIS vs. The Islamic State, or The Caliphate: These monsters ought to be called by their preferred name because by doing so, their evil actions are more likely be linked directly to Islam.

[3] A specific prophecy can have an original fulfillment in the past and a secondary and final fulfillment in the future.
