In Ephesians 6:12, these words appear, ” We wrestle not against flesh and blood. But against principalities, (suggesting tyrannical authority) against powers, (suggesting nations) against the rulers the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Verse 12 is not about supernatural entities such as demons and the like. Some think that because of the clause “we wrestle not against flesh and blood.” Rather it is reminiscent of unusual state powers. Suggesting a correlation with religious authority in high places. which results spiritual wickedness.
This scenario has taken upon itself different aspects through history. For this writer clergyman, its current application applies to Islam. Islam is about tyrannical state power. Even where elections take place like in Iran. It is the religious clerics like, Supreme Leader, Ayotollah Ali Khamanei, Chief of State, who rule. Elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, of Iran is the head of state. But is accountable to religious clerics like the Chief of State and his religious clerical Parliament. It is a country where certain crimes are punishable by stoning offenders to death. That is because the countries judicial system is also controlled by religious clerics who administer justice in accordance with law as spelled out in the Qur’an.
To greater or lesser degrees that is the state of conditions in all Muslim countries. A country of lesser degree would be Pakistan. There the religious clerics went to war against the government because of a refusal to implement Islamic law as the countries judicial system. Following there defeat at the Mosque. Supporters through out the country took to the streets the next day. Ramming their car loaded with explosives killing three policemen. Taking upon themselves suicide missions killing others. Such behavior represents moral and spiritual bankruptcy. And Islamic clerics, have the gull to talk about moral depravity through out the West.
What sane stable civilized community wants such spiritual darkness in their community? Who exhibit a behavior not known to a spices made up of flesh and blood. They must be the incarnation of pure evil. Who are ruled by the Islamic spiritual leaders who drag them down to the pits of spiritual darkness. Only to emerge as creatures without blood and flesh. With goals of bringing their darkened spirituality into high places within world governments.
The United States is under attack with the most recent attack occurring at Fort Hood, Texas. Led by jihadi Muslim Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. It’s a different style of warfare. Different from what most Americans picture in their minds. Which are images of tanks, troop movement with air support. Gone for now and maybe forever. Until maybe they try a repeat of the their 1967 war efforts. Only this time with a new player, Iran. Who will bring to the war theater, a nuclear arsenal. By civilization as, we currently know it.
Western governments are dumb founded and mostly unprepared to react to this Islamic menace that is reeking havoc and destruction around the world. Because it is warfare, completely foreign to them. It is the warfare using the weaponry of spiritual wickedness in high places, as noted in verse twelve.
These are entities of some foreign source engulfed in spiritual darkness. Who call themselves holy warriors or jihadist and practice Islam.
These jihadist have render the world’s most powerful army confused and helpless, wherever the war theater happens to be.
Iran is feeding the insurgency with holy warriors. By training 20-60 Iraqis at a time. Who are these insurgents? They are Shiite Muslims. The training operation is funded by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Quds Force. There training facilities are in Iran. The trainers are from the Quds Forces and with assistance from Hezbollah’s holy warriors.
This was made public by United States, Brigadier General, Kevin Bergner, the nations chief spokes person for operations in Iraq, under President Bush. According to the General the evidence is indisputable. Which caused President Bush to threaten Iran with certain unspecified consequences. Generally interrupted as a possible military attack. Instead President Bush sent another battle group of ships to join the others off the Iranian coast. At a cost of billions of dollars to the American taxpayers.
Meaning nothing to the Iranians because they have a score to settle with the United States. When the time is right, they will exact their revenge. Bush is gone and Obama is here but little has changed. Except Iran is closer to exacting their revenge.
In contrast the Iranians continue doing what they do best. Reek mayhem and havoc for the worlds only remaining super power. Employing well trained, non uniformed holy warriors. Who are poorly equipped jihadist. Compared to the mighty United States Army. Then to inflict more pain to U.S. suffering. They are holding their own against the worlds premier fighting power. At much less the cost for war and with fewer casualties. If that is not enough, the nations they represent are cheering them on to kill more Americans. Even if it means following a defeated army right to the shores of the good old United States of America.
Most Americans do not have the slightest clue as to what is occurring and that’s why the government gets away with their political shenanigans.
Like it or not, the world is engaged in a world war. Not like the world wars of the previous century. This world war, in this, 21 century is a religious war. It is taking place in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine and Pakistan where the conflict is more visible. But it is also taking place through out the West, most noticeably in Great Britain. It is also going on in the, United States. Its full force is yet to be applied upon this nation.
What does the public think is **going on**? With numerous failed armed plots against U.S. targets. Targets like 9/11, Fort Dix, JFK airport and now Fort Hood?Â The **going on** for most, is to accept the government rhetoric, that it is the work of a few Muslim extremist. Which is a lie because it is open religious warfare. A warfare all Muslims are engaged in one way or another. It is demanded of them from the Qur’an which has been discussed in previous postings.
To answer the question as to **what is going on.** The answer is described in the opening paragraphs of this posting.
People lie so often that when they hear the truth they reject that truth. Muslim truth goes all the way back to the Muslim religions prophet Muhammad. Who said, in March of 632, “I was told to fight all men until they there is no god but Allah.” It was repeated by Iranian Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, in 1979. “We will export our revolution through out the world. Until the calls ‘there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah’ are echoed all over the world.” Then came along Osama bin Laden in 2001. ” I was ordered to fight all people until they say there is no god but Allah and his prophet Muhammad. Followed by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who said, “I am a Muslim first and then an American!” And, he proved it!
And he gained the proud eulogy of infamous Muslim cleric, who spoke for the Muslim community when he said, “Nidal Hasan is a hero. He is a man of conscience, who could not bear the living contradiction of being a Muslim serving in the army that is fighting against his own people. Nidal opened fire on soldiers, who were on their way to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. How can there be any dispute about the virtue of what he has done? In fact, the only way a Muslim could Islamically justify serving as a soldier in the U.S. army is if his intention is to follow the footsteps of Men like Nidal,” Anwar al-Awlaki. The former Muslim cleric, who led the Northern Virginia mosque that Hasan attended. And which the 9/11 jihadist, Nawaf al-Hazmi, Hani hanjour and Khalid al-Mihdhar also attended in 2001.
Any religion that uses violence as a means of persuasion to gain acceptance can not have a bases in truth. Rather it represents spiritual darkness in high places. There very presence in our respective countries should be rejected. The call should be get rid of these devils while the getting rid of them is possible.
Does America need cars ramming into our police cars packed with explosive devices? Or suicide bombers, killing Americans in public places? It is our American future, unless we deal with this Muslim menace forcefully, wherever they are found.
