The United States has been fighting a war in Afghanistan going on for almost nineteen years. Historians have labeled the American war effort there as, “The Fourth Anglo – Afghan War.” The previous three Anglo wars against Afghanistan were fought by Great Britain. These are the dates of those wars, 1839-42; 1878-80; 1919, in which from its base in India sought to extend its control over neighboring Afghanistan and to oppose Russian influence there.

Three wars no victories for the Brits. Neither will the United States be victorious!
In the truest sense its a war that’s been going on for many centuries. Those wars should be labeled Islam -v- Judeo Gentile wars. Because they are indeed, of biblical proportion!
Islam really has the advantage because they are a global united army hell bent on conquering the world for Allah and his prophet, Muhammad. There’s the Teliban, IS, and brave soldiers such as the lone attacker upon a United States naval base in Pensacola, Florida, killing, and wounding as many as possible. Knowing that he couldn’t survive his singular Islamic attack. And he didn’t!
But he successfully accomplished, what makes Muslims an impossible foe to vanquish from being an everlasting threat. Sacrifice self for the collective good of the cause.
Second Lieutenant Mohammed Saeea Alshamrani, Saudi citizen, who left the Islamic war mantra behind for all to read. Stating, “I hate Americans for their crimes against Muslims and humanity, as well U.S. support for Israel.”
And the so called experts won’t grasp the significance of what history has been attempting to tell them. Because it can only be understood from a biblical perspective.
Here’s the biblical truth. Moses warned the world about the dangers presented by Muslims thousands of years ago by divine providence, writing, “Behold you are with child, you shall call his name Ishmael …. He shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” Texts: Genesis 16:11-12.
Then centuries later after the birth and murder of Jesus. The man Jesus placed in charge to educate the people about multiple topics. He wrote this about Islam. Get rid of Muslims because they are nothing but trouble. Texts: Galatians 4:27-31.
Here’s one of histories greatest facts. Ever since the birthrights of inheritance were given to Isaac. Muslims have felt a mistake was made, and that the God given birthrights of inheritance belonged to Ishmael. Because Ishmael was Abraham’s first son.
There is a real need to enlist Christians in how to understand and how to deal with our Islamic problem. John gave us a clue when by divine providence wrote, “…. I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the seven lampstands, One like the Son of Man. He had in His right hand seven stars. The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands; the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches. Texts: Revelation 1:12-13; 2:20.
Brief exegesis. The mystery unfolded is about Jesus providing angelic help in our warfare against any and all enemies. With Jesus standing in the midst as Commander in Chief of His lamptands, us.
