1991 - The Fallen Star of Islam

By Jay Rogers
Published January 1, 1991

And I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power, and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen!” Revelation 18:1,2

During the past two months, the world has watched as the nations have squared off over a small plot of valuable real estate – Kuwait. The United Nations have declared war on Iraq, a military dictatorship ruled by Saddam Hussein and have boldly demanded: “Get out of Kuwait!”

While some would say that this is a battle for oil, others in the Arab world say that it is a struggle of Islam against “the Great Satan.” But from a biblical perspective, this is a struggle of a much wider proportion. When we speak of Iraq, Kuwait and Iran, nations which have troubled America since the Carter administration, we should understand that these nations encompass lands which once included the ancient kingdoms of the Chaldeans, the Medes and the Persians – known to biblical authors as – Babylon.

The verse in Revelation 18 “Babylon is fallen!” speaks of the ultimate triumph of God’s kingdom and gives us an assurance that His glory will one day fill the whole earth. We have seen this process unfold dramatically in our lifetime.

During the past two years, the world has watched as communism – the great enemy of freedom – has fallen. The people of many nations quickly overturned their communist governments in favor of a more democratic representation of their people. With communism almost eliminated from the contest for the hearts and minds of the human race, there are only two great remaining forces competing for world dominion – Christianity and Islam.

The military conflict in the Middle East is only a reflection of a much greater conflict that is happening in the spiritual realm, or, if you are not inclined to think in such terms, it is a battle of ideas or two conflicting worldviews which cannot co-exist peaceably in the same universe. Both of these two remaining forces insist on total world dominion.

The outcome of the contest is coming quickly to a close. The result of the struggle will be determined by the fact that one group has been instructed that the battle is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The other company has been taught that power comes through domination; that bloodshed is the key to gaining control. Warfare is relegated to earthly struggles of the armies of the nations against each other. Understanding this, the outcome of this battle can easily be predicted – Islam will be defeated, the back of the world’s largest religion will be broken – and its downfall will take place in a shorter period of time than communism.

Natural Israel and the Church will increase. And millions of Muslims the world over will see at once that their concept of the one, true God – Allah – is not the same as the Father who was revealed through Jesus Christ. When a billion Muslims the world over see the great signs and wonders which are now about to take place, they will call on the name of the Living God – the God revealed through Jesus the only Son of God. And millions of Muslims will be saved.

Governments throughout the Middle East, Africa and Asia will dissolve overnight. Democracies will replace dictatorships; and the resulting freedom of religion will allow a great influx of Christianity, the true salt of the earth, to invade these nations and bring peace – not war – because peace can only be realized when Christ is formed within the hearts of the people.

The military conflict in the Middle East is only a reflection of a much greater conflict that is happening in the spiritual realm, or, if you are not inclined to think in such terms, it is a battle of ideas or two conflicting worldviews which cannot co-exist peaceably in the same universe. Both of these two remaining forces insist on total world dominion.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.
