One of the reasons they fast is because of "Al-Qadr, the Night of Power, is when Allah is said to have sent down the Quran. If a Muslim encounters the light of Allah during the Night of Power, they believe that all iniquities and sins will be forgiven for their whole life. Therefore, during the last 10 nights of Ramadan, Muslims are expecting to receive from Allah." Quote from Intercessors for America's The Connecter, "Effective Intercession During Ramadan" by author Kamal Saleem May 2019.
I was privileged to meet Kamal once. He has a powerful testimony about he was sent to America as a terrorist sleeper agent. Then he had a paralyzing accident which led to his encounter with the love of God displayed through a doctor and a family and then he experienced God's healing power. Kamal suggests we pray the following;
- "We ask that Christians everywhere pray that as Muslims around the world seek and encounter from Allah and forgiveness of their sins, that they instead have an encounter with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Stories of Muslim's experiencing dreams and visions of Christ are everywhere. We believe this is a product of the Church's prayers. Statistics show that 46% of Muslims who have converted to Christianity have experienced dreams and visions."
Religion Mountain Intel & Scriptures to Help Guide Your Prayers
Paul said in 2 Corinthians 2:11, "lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.
Jesus said Matthew 7:15-20, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
Mohamad is the founder of Islam and is said to be their prophet. Click here.
The scripture says this about the wisdom that is from heaven in James. James 3:17-18 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
James says this about the wisdom from the earth. James 3:13-16 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.
Jesus describes the modus operandi of Satan and his children in John 8:44 and John 10:10 where it says:
- John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
- John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Satan is also behind the Antichrist spirit (1 John 2:18-19). The Apostle John goes on to say in 1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.
Why Islam even has a doctrine of taqyia. It is the doctrine click here that allows lying to "make peace" and "gain the upper hand against the enemy," Did you know that the word Islamophobia is a made up word. It was created in 1995 to help them lie in their cultural jihad. It implies there is an unrealistic exaggerated fear when in truth, the threat is very real as a significant percentage of Islam practices the radical form of their doctrine.
In Islam, Jesus is only recognized as a prophet and there is no reference ever referring to Allah as Father.
The Spirit of Truth & Error
1 John 4:3-6 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
Remember that 2 Timothy 1:7 says "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
Ephesians 5:1 and 4:26 remind us that we are to walk in love and speak the truth.
So as we pray, let us put on the whole armor of God.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,
