We have been seeing the images on TV, the testimonials from the victims of these horrendous attacks in Normandy. The first of these attacks was at a youth camp now known by the AP as the Island of the Dead, where a 32 year old radical Christian fundamentalist by the name of Anders Behring Breivik, shot and mutilated the bodies of 84 children and adults, as reported by the BBC. On the same day another attack was carried out by fundamentalist Islamic extremists in the Capitol city of Oslo. The numbers of those dead and injured are not readily available in AP sources at this time, but the guess is it will not be a few.
We are told on the news that the religious doctrines of Islam and Christianity are at war with each other. However, it is interesting that many look at the Oklahoma City bombings during the Clinton administration which was the deadliest terrorist attack before September 11th 2011 and this such attack was carried out by another Christian fundamentalist. We can go through the history of Christiandom and see that they, like the muslims have blood on their hands all throughout history dating all the way back to the Christian Crusades. And it is common knowledge in the Hebraic Roots movement that the Catholic Church indeed created Islam and trained Mohammad. In an odd way the Christians/Catholics, and Islam compliment each other very well when it comes to death and destruction.
When we look at prophecy however, we see the two very much work together a great deal. Christians will be waiting for a pre-tribulation rapture that has no Scriptural basis, and they will be trying to pull their Muslim brothers and sisters out of Islam and into Christianity. When the rapture does not happen, the opposite effect could then take place. The commonality is also Isa (aka Iseous) aka Jesus, the Greek messiah. Many Christians hold onto the doctrinal talking point that "Jesus will place HIS mark upon us", well the Quran says just that. It is written that Isa will come from out of the underground, (very possibly with holes in his hands and a crown of thorns on his head) and he will be the one to distribute the mark. Then when he bows to the Mahdi, the Christians will then follow.
We need not be confused, Jesus Christ is a fictional messiah who did away with Torah, thus by Deuteronomy 13 making him a false prophet. Yeshua will return after the lasy shofar blast and he will bring up his people after that final shofar blast as written in 1 Thessalonians 4. Many hebraic roots followers could very well be snookered into accepting Jesus' (Isa's) mark as opposed to awaiting the return of the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach.
Lets not fool ourselves Islam, and Christiandom have the same track record and were spawned from each other, so why should we be surprised that in these two attacks in Norway, one was a Christian fundamentalist and the other, and Islamic fundamentalist? They are one in the same same, history proves it, the prophecy in the Scriptures proves it and their actions prove it.
However we must all be in prayers for the victims and their families and ask that YHWH touches them in a very special way, and is able to ease the suffering of the injured, and the families of the mourning, and we as these things in Yeshua's name.
