Unfortunately it appears that ISIS is not a passing fad that is going away anytime soon. Why has Merkel thrown open the doors of Europe for an Islamic invasion. Why are the United States and Israel supporting ISIS (years of so called war on ISIS produced a stronger ISIS? Yes, until Russia showed up in Syria and showed the world what a real war on ISIS looks like.)
How do we know ISIS and this Islamic surge in the world is not a passing fad? What do many people including secretary of state John Kerry call ISIS? Daesh...Why do they call ISIS Daesh? What exactly does Daesh mean?
According to this article and some others I have seen there are at least two meanings:1
1. its an acronym: "D.A.E.SH is a transliteration of the Arabic acronym formed of the same words that make up I.S.I.S in English: 'Islamic State in Iraq and Syria', or 'al-dowla al-islaamiyya fii-il-i'raaq wa-ash-shaam'."
and more importantly from this article:
2. Depending on how it is conjugated in Arabic, the word can mean "to trample down and crush."
To trample down and crush? How interesting....what did the Lord our God tell us a couple thousand years ago about the fourth beast?
Daniel 7:19Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; 20And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. 21I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; 22Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
23Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. 24And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. 25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. 26But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. 27And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
A Bible in one hand (with the Spirit of the Lord guiding us) and the daily news in the other hand is about all we need to see that exactly what our God said would happen is happening. The formation of the fourth beast kingdom is taking place before our eyes. Ask a better question, get a better answer. Why is Islam being glorified throughout the world today? Why are the leaders of the western world allowing Islam to overrun and trample down their countries? Why does the west say it is fighting ISIS but continue to support ISIS covertly? Why? Because a couple thousands years ago our God looked into the future and told us there was to be a fourth beast kingdom which will devour, trample down and break in pieces:
Jer 51:20Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;
21And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider; and with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider;
22With thee also will I break in pieces man and woman; and with thee will I break in pieces old and young; and with thee will I break in pieces the young man and the maid;
23I will also break in pieces with thee the shepherd and his flock; and with thee will I break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen; and with thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers.
24And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the LORD.
25Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.
26And they shall not take of thee a stone for a corner, nor a stone for foundations; but thou shalt be desolate for ever, saith the LORD.
ISIS is Daesh, and ISIS is the Islamic State. What is being used like a battle axe to destroy kingdoms and break in pieces the nations? The Islamic State: Daesh which literally means "to trample down and crush."
Do not take my word for any of this, what did the Lord say would happen and what is happening?
grace and peace
