The Strategy Behind Islamization

By Nathan Jones

Is Islam organized in its desire to subjugate the world? Like football, does it follow a game plan in its ambition to win? Does it have strategy, method and set goals to achieve its ends?

The answer is a most definite "Yes." As Islam seeks to conform the nations of the world to Islamic law and precepts, called "Islamization," the totalitarian movement has created observable trends that can be analyzed to discern its methods. The following video "If You Live in the West" has done an incredible job at looking at these trends and giving the viewer an eyeful inside Islam's game book. It's well worth the 8-minute viewing.

Prophetic Significance

What does the growing Islamization of the world mean in relation to Bible prophecy?

1. As the nations of the world become more Islamic, Muslim persecution of the Jews increases, forcing the Jew to flee their country of residence and return to Israel. The return of the Jewish peoples to the land of Israel is in direct fulfillment of God's promise to regather the Jewish people back to their own land (Isa. 11:12; Mic. 2:12). The Lord does this ultimately, as He states in Ezekiel 28:25, to "show myself holy among them in the sight of the nations."

2. Islamization will draw the subjugated Muslim nations encompassing Israel to their destruction. As Islam focuses it's wrath upon Israel, God will focus His wrath upon them in return and in a series of battles from Psalm 83 to Ezekiel 38-39 to the setting up of the Antichrist's kingdom, the Islamic world will be mostly annihilated. God's wrath upon the Muslim world for their hatred of the "apple of His eye" (Zech. 2:8) — Israel — will be fulfilled.

3. The destruction of the power and influence of the Islamic world will create a power vacuum which the Antichrist from Europe will use as an opportunity to build His empire. Only Israel will stand in his way to global domination after he's subjugated his enemies, and he deals with them initially with a treaty (Dan. 9:27), then with war (Joel 3:2; Zech. 14:2).

4. The absolute views Islam holds will be remembered as a danger to world peace, and so all religions that hold absolute views will be persecuted. Christianity and Judaism will be seen as a direct threat to world peace and the False Prophet's one-world religion. Other religions will conform quickly into that one-world religion, and those who who don't will be quickly killed. Tribulation believers in Christ will know the persecution first-hand for their absolute faith in Jesus Christ (Rev. 6:11; Rev. 7:9-15).

With all the fear the free world has as their nations are taken over by Islam, believers in Jesus can find comfort knowing that what Mohammad means for evil, God uses for good. Nothing thwarts God's plans!
