The Bible Beats the Quran/Koran and the US Will Beat Militant Islam’s Butt, but…

God says there is none like Him, declaring the end from the beginning. In Genesis 22, God shows the end of militant Islam when Isaac was saved from sacrifice by a ram caught by its horns in a bush. The Quran says Ishmael was spared by sacrificing the ram. Which is right?

When Christ was asked about the end of the world in Matthew 24, he recommended we understand a desolating power first mentioned in Daniel 8. Here is a prophecy that reaches from the time of Daniel to the present and includes a ram that gets stomped and its horns are broken by a goat. Daniel 8:20,21 tells us the horns on the ram are the kings of Media and Persia and they are broken by the first king of Grecia (Alexander the Great).

But Gabriel said the vision is “at the time of the end,” (verse 17) so what we’re looking at is a double application of prophecy—once in history, and again for our time when the Medes and Persians have become Iraq and Iran. If we read closely, several items fit better now:

1. Daniel was by the River Ulai when he saw the action, Daniel 8:2. Reference librarians say the modern name is the Karun River that empties into the confluence of the Tigress and Euphrates by Kuwait—which is where US troops deployed in 2002. And Alexander’s Battle of Arbela was more than 700 miles away—not what Daniel saw!

2. The goat came from the west “on the face of the whole earth,” Daniel 8:5. The US coalition had soldiers from every continent; Alexander did not; he came from Grecia.

3. The goat “touched not the ground,” ibid. The US fought and won the war largely in the air. These clues fit our victory in 2002 that ended with the horn of Saddam broken, an omen of Iran and militant Islam’s defeat. This offers insight to the true holy book which shows that Isaac, not Ishmael, was spared by sacrificing the ram caught by its horns in bush (George Bush?)

Israel (descendents of Isaac) should be encouraged that God intends to spare them as Isaac. All of this as God said, “declaring the end from the beginning” (Genesis, book of beginnings).

But God’s foreknowledge of military victory is not a statement about the rightness of the US. The ram is a more noble creature than a goat and Christ will separate sheep from goats as shown in Matthew 25:33. We should understand Islam’s (ram) concern that the US has been much like the “great Satan.” Have we not brought tobacco, alcohol, drugs, Hollywood’s immorality, perversion and rock music to pollute their land and their younger generation?

After a military victory, the US’ “horn” gets broken, Daniel 8:8.
