A Taliban delegation led by acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi on Sunday started three days of closed door talks in Oslo with Western officials and Afghan representatives amid a deteriorating humanitarian situation in Afghanistan.
Please continue to pray for the underground church in Afghanistan.
The Taliban travelled to Norway in a private jet and are trying to maneuver their way into legitimacy and recognition by coaxing foolish Western governments like Norway to give them financial support. They claim that their topic of interest is woman’s rights! You’re kidding!
The West is so naïve and blind. Instead of befriending radicals, the West should befriend the suffering people in Afghanistan and help remove the radicals. If they would be honest the Taliban would admit that they really have no concerns for woman since Sharia says it takes 4 woman to equal the word of one man!
The Taliban’s real goal is the creation of the Caliphate and to spread their radical Islamist ideology worldwide and the West won’t change that by meeting with them in private to talk about women’s rights!
Follows Islamic Mandates Resumption of Executions!
The Taliban, which took over Afghanistan in just a matter of days after Joe Biden abruptly pulled American military forces out, leaving behind both Americans and billions of dollars in war machinery, now have raised the level of enforcement of Shariah and punitive Islamic religious law.
The Taliban stunned the rest of the world with its quick takeover of Afghanistan as soon as Biden’s pullout was implemented.
Since the 90’s, the Taliban has consistently called for an Islamic Caliphate and telling the world that they felt it was their duty to make the Caliphate a reality including the rule of Shariah law. The Quran calls “intoxicants” “defilement from the work of Satan.”
But remember, you’re not supposed to talk about stuff like this anymore in America!
In fact, it’s getting dangerous in America to criticize Islam on any level. If you even hint that some aspects of Shariah may be incompatible with Western society and law, you’re labeled a racist and a bigoted ‘Islamophobe’.
Protection of Islam from criticism comes about because Satan, the god of this world, favors Islam and needs to protect it like a mother protects her baby. Satan plans to use it by deceiving Muslims into becoming his primary weapon to destroy Israel and defeat Jesus at His Second Coming!
Since the Taliban has taken over Afghanistan, it has confirmed the resumption of executions for offenses to Islam, and it has banned foreign currencies and declared the region to be a caliphate, confiscated girls to use as sex slaves, assembled a “kill list” of LGBT Afghans, handed over land and money to jihadists who killed U.S. soldiers, withdrawn rights for women, and even banned barbers from trimming men’s beards. Welcome to Sharia-heaven!
Students of Bible prophecy need to understand that the Taliban isn’t any different than ISIS or Hamas or Boko Harem or Hezbollah or the former Ottoman Caliphate. They are all forerunners of the coming empire of Antichrist which will be driven by the final Caliphate using the same enforcement of Shariah on the unsuspecting world. I’m looking for Jesus to come soon… how about you?
An Afghan volleyball player on the girls’ national team was beheaded by the Taliban — with gruesome photos of her severed head posted on social media, according to her coach.
Mahjabin Hakimi, one of the best players in the Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club, was slaughtered in the capital city of Kabul as Taliban thugs searched for female sports players, her coach told the Persian Independent.
She was killed earlier this month, but her death remained mostly hidden because her family had been threatened not to talk, claimed the coach, using a pseudonym, Suraya Afzali, due to safety fears.
Images of Hakimi’s severed neck were published on Afghan social media, according to the paper, which did not say how old she was.
Beheading In Bible Prophecy
Revelation twenty tells us Christian martyrs in the last days will be beheaded.
I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
The Bible shows us that in the last-days, beheading will be the primary method used by the beast (Caliphate) for capital punishment. Believers who refuse to submit to the teachings of Islam and who reject bowing to the Image of the Beast or taking the Mark of the Beast will be martyred. They will be killed specifically for their “testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God.”
Is the Bible implying a resurrection of guillotines during the Tribulation period? What exactly is the Bible inferring will occur that will result in the 8th empire’s standard of using beheading as a means of executing Christians?
God chose to drop the clue about beheading to help us identify the beast. Who are the beheaders? They certainly aren’t Baptist’s, Catholics or Protestants. Only Muslim countries practice capital punishment by beheading. Only the religion of Islam promotes killing Christians, Jews and everyone else who doesn’t submit to them. They are the only religion in the world that practices killing those who refuse to follow them. That’s one of the reasons God describes Islam as the “mother of harlots” and the “mother of abominations of the earth” (Rev. 17:5). There’s no other religion that is worse!
In Saudi Arabia, this practice is sanctioned to the point that some beheadings are public affairs. This is quite understandable as a demonstration of state power. After, all, the “Sword of Islam,” is the image emblazoned on the Saudi Arabian flag.
Beheading infidels is sanctioned in the Quran and put into law in Muslim majority nations under Sharia Law.
The Quran makes for harrowing reading. Here’s a sampling.
Allah promises to “cast terror into the hearts of those who are bent on denying the truth; strike, then, their necks!” (8.12). He instructs his Muslim followers to kill unbelievers, to capture them, and to ambush them (9.5). Everything contributes to advancing Allah’s goal: “Strike terror into Allah’s enemies, and your enemies” (8.60). “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” – Quran 47:4
Antichrist and the False Prophet won’t need guillotines to accomplish their murderous deeds. In fact, Muslim cultural sees honor in the sword. For centuries, Muslims have boasted about their bravery in the imagery of the sword.
Today, with the rise of Islamic groups like ISIS, the Taliban, Boko Harem, Al Qaeda and Shariah compliant countries, we are seeing more and more beheadings as another sign of the last days.
This is telling us we are getting closer to the Tribulation. It’s likely that Afghanistan is one of the 10-nations that make up the Beast Empire and here we see them beheading just as Revelation prophesied.
Bad things are taking place in the United States! What are we to make of the Afghanistan debacle and the frenzied takeover by the Talban that unfolded late summer?
For sure it is further evidence on the world stage that America’s leadership and role is greatly diminished. We have an administration in Washington that so mishandled this operation, that the only conclusion is that the catastrophe was deliberate. The message to Israel’s enemies is clear, “we’re leaving… you can take over.”
The details were likely orchestrated by the “useful idiots” in the Biden administration, made up of the haters of America and Israel. Good people were left behind, including an unknown number of Americans as well as the underground church while tens of thousands of Afghanis were allowed to waltz into America, including Muslim men with child brides.
What a contrast. In 2018, Trump harshly sanctioned Turkey until Erdogan released Pastor Andrew Brunson but in 2021 Biden betrayed the Christians in Afghanistan by sentencing them to suffer under the Taliban. It doesn’t get any stranger or any more evil. This is like watching a horror movie play out.
We hear much about the Magog/Armageddon War of Ezekiel 38-39. The 7 “stans” of Central Asia are part of the geography of ancient Magog: Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Pakistan. The average percentage of the Muslim population throughout the 7 “stan” nations is about 95% per country. These are some of the Muslim countries who will be among the invading armies pouring into Israel in the final war led by Turkey along with Iran, Libya, and Sudan.
Ezekiel 39:9 says Israel will burn the weapons of this war for seven years. The Biden administration chose to leave $85 billion in weaponry behind in Afghanistan. Surely some of this weaponry will soon be burning in the Valley of Megiddo where the pools of blood are so high they sometimes reach up to the horses bridal (Rev. 14:20).
While the Pentagon claims some of this equipment was dismantled, it can easily be re-built by the Russians or the Chinese. Afghanistan borders China so it’s no surprise the Chinese have embraced the Taliban with bribes for their rare mineral resources.
Iran has already set up a trading post with the Taliban in the city of Herat, Afghanistan, near Iran’s border. In Herat, the Iranians are busy trading Iranian gas and oil with the Taliban for weapons. Meanwhile, as our satellite surveillance watches the trucks coming and going, despite the illegal exchanges and despite the UN and USA sanctions, our feckless government says nothing.
In other words, Israel’s enemies have been replenished with some of the most sophisticated military equipment found on the planet thanks to hard-working U.S. taxpayers. It’s enough to make your blood boil!
Sunni and Shite, Working Together
The Taliban are close allies with Pakistan who have 100 nuclear warheads which could be significant to the revived Ottoman Caliphate. Turkey has partnered with Pakistan to build Pakistan a new fleet of “Corvette” swift boats to expand Pakistan’s Navy for the coming Caliphate wars during the Tribulation.
I think we’ll soon find sophisticated U.S. weapons in all the Red Nations below. These are likely 7 of the 10 nations I believe that will join together to form the final empire.
Look closely and you’ll notice the sea of red covers geography from the Mediterranean to the border of India. It precisely overlays 3 ancient empires depicted in Daniel 7:2-6 and Revelation 13:2 that forms the location prophesied for the 8th empire of Antichrist.
America’s Sudden Decline
The passage in Ezekiel says no nation comes to Israel’s aid in the final invasion of Israel. Where is America during Israel’s hour of need? This is striking evidence that the world’s only superpower has fallen and turned away from Israel. She’s too sick to lift a hand. The prophetic silence concerning America seems to show that power will shift away from the United States to such an extent she has no role in prophecy whatsoever. That means we’re heading into a future season in our country that won’t look anything like our past. It could come suddenly by a financial collapse or any number of calamities or the final shock to America’s system could even be caused by the Rapture. Three Reasons Since we’re living in the shadow of the Tribulation there are numerous reasons to suspect why God would allow the decline of America so rapidly. Here are 3. Judgment for Sin – God hasn’t turned away from America, we have turned away from God. Beginning 50 years ago, we began outlawing God’s Word and His Ways which has brought God’s curse on our nation (Isaiah 10:1-4) and we are now reaping what we’ve sown. Rise of the Beast – The superpower status of America, on the international level, will need to be weakened to allow for the rise of the Beast. America still has military bases throughout the Middle East with several sitting on nations that likely will be part of the coming Beast empire including Turkey, Iraq, Qatar and until recently, Afghanistan. Up until now theses bases represented the power and might of the Christian nation of the USA that has prevented bad actors from rising against Israel. The nuclear and missile threat emanating from our bases will need to be depleted to clear the path for the Beast… just as what happened in Afghanistan! These countries are thrilled to see the United States, the “Great Satan” leaving the Middle East. Remove Support for Israel – God doesn’t want the U.S. rescuing Israel or interrupting His promised redemptive plans for Israel during the 7-year Tribulation (Dan. 12:7).
When the leadership of Israel rejected and crucified Jesus their Messiah, God postponed completing Israel’s calendar (Dan. 9:24-27) by precisely 7 years. After the Rapture, God will begin fulfilling those final 7 years that lead to the fulfillment of the Abrahamic Covenant and the salvation of Israel’s remnant. Aside from judging America for its iniquity and rebellion, the Lord’s judgment is also falling because we’ve turned away from Israel. God is taking away His supernatural protection and blessing so that at the end of the Tribulation the U.S. is but a shell of her former self on the world stage and either unable or uninterested in coming to Israel’s aid.
This is what we’re watching in 2021. The major problems flooding into our country are not just random or accidental. God has sovereignly directed them as His way of judging our country. It’s a pattern God used to judge the ungodly acts of Israel’s Northern Kingdom, “In those days… God was troubling them with every kind of distress” (2 Chron. 15:5-6). Paul says it this way, “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people” (Rom. 1:18). America might not be around to help Israel —but God sure is! He devastates her enemies and because of the miraculous nature of the war’s outcome, Israel realizes God was on her side. For the remnant that remains, this begins the spiritual awakening of God’s chosen people.
So how big is your God? If God doesn’t need America to fulfill His promises on the world stage, think of what God can do through a yielded life in the power of the Holy Spirit. Let Him use you! To evidence the reprobate minds and upside-down thinking that prevails in Washington these days, the Administration is talking about further negotiating with the Taliban. Oh boy! That means U.S. aid! These are heavy handed thugs with a Shariah mindset, motivated by brutality that makes them look more like ISIS than allies. Are we really going to support a regime that rapes women and throw gays off of tall buildings blindfolded? Probably. Beginning to Unravel America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture. But don’t be discouraged or disillusioned. In fact, there’s good reason to rejoice in that we are the generation God has chosen to stand in this hour! The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God’s kingdom! Pray for Those Left Behind in Afghanistan With the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, more of the end-time stage is being set as the 10-king nations and the Ottoman Caliphate begin to fall into place! Of particular concern right now in Afghanistan are the many Christians who are in hiding or on the run. The underground Church needs your prayers! The crisis in Afghanistan has taught us that no number of U.S. resources, training or occupation can change a Muslim nation under Shariah Law. The only way to make a difference is through individual disciple-making. As death and mayhem continue, one thing is clear: the need for Jesus in the Middle East has never been greater. Now is the time to respond to the cry of our persecuted brothers and sisters in what the Lord is doing to grow His Kingdom. One underground leader said, “Pray that God puts angels around our home! The Taliban have begun to mark houses with a C for Christian. One of us is always awake during the night, always walking around and praying, so if the Taliban should come and knock on our door, we should alert everyone.” The Mideast Beast nations are lining up, Israel is being surrounded, America is falling, and the economy is weakening. However, as the Apostle Paul says to the troubled Thessalonians, we can take rest in the fact that Jesus is coming! And give relief (rest) to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10). Maranatha! Even so come Lord Jesus!
The Talibanare hunting down Christians and any Afghan organization or people tied to the United States. In doing so, they are doing exactly what the Quran commands them to do in waging Jihad against infidels.
Like ISIS, the Taliban are a good example of what the coming BEAST EMPIRE will look like. Pure evil! Americans who are trying to get Afghan allies out of the country continue to hear horrific stories from those they’re trying to rescue.
A Wednesday press conference by Qari Fasihuddin, the acting army chief of the Taliban, barely caused a ripple in the U.S. news media.
Fasihuddin’s comments set off reactions ranging from deep concern to panic among the Afghans in hiding, as the new acting army chief pledged that “those who defend democracy in Afghanistan” and oppose the Taliban would be suppressed, and that a new, regular, strong Taliban army would be taking control and defending the borders.
Rulers of Taliban were released from Guantanamo Bay by Obama/Biden in Bergdahl Prisoner Swap
The Taliban members released from Guantanamo Bay by the Obama/Biden administration in 2014 in exchange for admitted US Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl helped plan the Taliban’s return to power and now have high level positions in the Taliban Islamist government in Afghanistan. The ‘Gitmo Five’ were labelled “hardest of the hardcore” by US intelligence officials who urged Obama and Biden to reconsider their decision.
Taliban leaders go from jail, to negotiating table, to Kabul to ruling Afghanistan
Thousands remain left behind in Afghanistan as U.S. forces withdraw from Kabul following President Biden’s political strategy of simply getting out of the country, irrespective of the consequences.
When Taliban fighters seized Afghanistan’s presidential palace, news agencies carried photos of the scene, and one of the people in those photos was a prisoner named Khairullah Khairkhwa who was held at Guantanamo Bay from 2002 to 2014.
Obama released him from Guantanamo in the Bergdahl Prisoner Swap. Now he’s part of the Taliban government! Obama freed Bergdahl the traitor for radical Islamists claiming that the radicals being released in 2014 had been fully “vetted” and were reformed! Sure thing! They reformed all right… they reformed Afghanistan!
Worse yet, they are now positioned with enough U.S. military equipment to reform the balance of the Middle East. In prophetic terms, that will have the effect of reforming the region into the image of Satan just as prophesied in Revelation 12 and as Paul warned in 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9.
In light of the disastrous, radical turn for Afghanistan, what is our State Department concerned with? The only request from the State Department is for the new Taliban government to be inclusive! You’re kidding right? It doesn’t have gays and women in key leadership positions like good old Uncle Sam?
CNN seems surprised to discover “No women or members from Afghanistan’s ousted leadership were selected for acting cabinet positions or named to advisory roles, in spite of the Taliban’s promises of an inclusive government and more moderate form of Islamic rule.”
All of the “leaders” announced by the Taliban on Tuesday are established Taliban terror-squad captains that have been rewarded with senior positions in the Taliban government. This includes the new interior minister Sirrajuddin Haqqani who is a wanted terrorist and heads the Haqqani network, which has been behind some of the deadliest attacks including a 2017 truck bombing that killed more than 150. A Coming Caliphate The appointed new Prime Minister of the Taliban government is Hassan Akhund, who was in power the last time the Taliban controlled Afghanistan, in 1996 to 2001. Under his leadership, the Taliban first declared themselves an Islamic Caliphate.
It will be interesting to see what Caliphate strategy the Taliban employs this time around. Will they try to go it alone again or have they learned from the ill-fated attempt of ISIS to wait for an announcement from Turkey. Generation Jihad Followers of the dominant Sunni version of Islam, the Taliban has a long history of practicing the “Holy War” of Jihad similar to ISIS. What’s in a name! It turns out a lot. They’ve declared their name as… The Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan. Committed to Islam The Taliban’s campaign to portray themselves as normal citizens of a new government is a farce and demonstrates, once again, that negotiating or even attempting to influence Islam is a western delusion.
Committed Islamists like the Taliban play the west for all they can while rigidly following Shariah Law. Shariah means denying religious freedom and freedom of the press, sidelining woman as second-class citizens, beheading infidels and approving the Islamic practice of sex-trafficking. And on and on… Taliban Slated to Celebrate Inauguration of New Government on 911
Obama and Biden may be pleased by the Taliban’s radical appointments—days before the 20th anniversary of the 911 terror attack—but the whole mess is a slap in the face to the U.S. and its Western allies and all the men and women who were killed on 911 and in Afghanistan fighting for freedom the last 20 years!
So now you have Afghanistan, that Biden agreed to desert, stocked with billions of dollars in American weapons, left there on purpose by Biden, and Taliban soldiers who were released by Obama and Biden running Afghanistan.
Could it come more full-circle than that?
Actually, yes, care to take a guess when this new Taliban terror government funded and created by Obama and Biden is going to be inaugurated?
