So it is for this reason that I found a video with English translation so that I can listen and also try to also understand...May I suggest that everyone do the same..Then we can discuss this.
As it is I do not feel I am a person who can discuss this other than realising there are people who are ruling over lands and people by deception in our world and there is a reaction too.
Now I want to quote the holy scriptures, it is written:
So he said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty. Zechariah 4:6
It does not need any act from man but to trust in the Spirit of God to address all that is going on...not only now but also past and present time, here and overseas too.
Muslims are told to submit to God - to give up power and completely Trust God although interpretation of the truth and translation can change as has shown from what happened in history.
Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:7
One commandment is not to kill...so why are people killing today? What are people eager to take up weapons and go to war...can they not see that this will only escalate? What you fighting for?
Now a few years ago a lawyer contacted me from Turkey and with seeing my face, he saw this as being familiar being from Anatolia...Asking more he said his family are from Izmir...This being Smyrni in times gone by and this from where my Greek grandmother and her family came from.
The lawyer who I see as a credible person to listen explained 'the meaning of Jihad is struggle and the greatest Jihad is the struggle to overcome the negativity within us' - I wholesomely agree.
It was generally supposed that the order for a general war could only be given by the Caliph (an office that was claimed by the Ottoman sultans), but Muslims who did not acknowledge the spiritual authority of the Caliphate (which has been vacant since 1923)—such as non-Sunnis and non-Ottoman Muslim states—always looked to their own rulers for the proclamation of a jihad. There has been in fact no universal warfare by Muslims on non-believers since the early caliphate. Some proclaimed jihad by claiming themselves as mahdi, e.g. the Sudanese Mahommed Ahmad in 1882. In classical Islam, the military form of jihad was also regulated to protect civilians https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jihad
Self styled rulers have no right to rule..It is as simple as that!
How does one recognise a rightful successor?
Actually it is already said that Jesus Christ himself will reveal this person and exactly how this will be done. This is an issue for Muslims to take on board...Did Prophet Muhammad say this too?
When enemies have an agenda - at what point does their vengeance end. And I think you will find in this situation there is something so much more profound going on related to power.
It is interesting that this man is named Baghdadi...and Baghdad is named in Iraq...Noticing these similarities...Not speaking the native language I cannot discover more at this point.
The evil force of influence cannot be exorcised with evil acts...
The wave of terror has also been foretold - why?
The abusers in our world are going to feel terror too!
It is easy to hop onto claiming a supreme religion - God is not a religion. Prophet Muhammad has never sought fame or worship and neither did Jesus Christ. Both figures have been used as weapons against people and that in itself is actually inexcusable in this day and age especially now..
Recently I found a video that mentioned the Angel of Death..but more sinister is the warning that I was given many years ago that there are people evoking this demon to take life and how this is done.
The risk that anyone causes death to anyone - is their own...Not just their life but also the taking of their soul and in the holy scriptures the message is written very clearly to take careful notice of.
Fearing God Alone
…27"What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops. 28"Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:27-28
What is happening now is also foretold by Prophet Muhammad - so I discovered...A reminder of something else, in 2012 after prayer asking God for help to assist peace between Muslims and Christians Muhammad was seen in a dream. The following day was lead to read his letter at the Greek Orthodox Monastery at the foot of Mount Sinai....with being Greek Orthodox the chances of that might be high in odds.
The impression that I was given by Prophet Muhammad, written on my heart is that Muslims need to be very careful now in case they are going the wrong way now...Also to remember the true teaching and pure religion - Something else. Prophet Muhammad was standing on a green mount, looking over to other land, - These lands were surrounded by water as if a great flood took place - deluge is foretold with Jesus return.
The positive out of all these conflicts is that people are beginning to speak out...Muslims are speaking about the true religion of peace and denying that they are anything to do with the extremists.
Most people want to live in peace in our world...
The wars in this world are not really about religion..
The lust for power is great and vengeance is rife too.
Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. Romans 12:9
If this is the instruction given at one time...we can be sure that if we really trust in the LORD - then we must trust also that the wrath of God is going to come eventually...and it will.
What Christ has said is very clear indeed...
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
Prophet Muhammad had a night journey experience face to face with the Lord and so have other people since...but that is to prepare people...it is to remind people who is the King and for people to remind the people who do not know who is the King who was given authority...
Did Jesus Christ recognise this man as the successor?
I do not know...but there is surely more to know
Peace be with you
