are we approaching
Are we approaching the Battle of Armageddon? Absolutely!
How much time do we have left? Probably between seven and ten years. • Could it be longer? Yes, but it’s not likely.
1THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS WILL BEGIN WHEN THE ANTICHRIST
AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY GIVE THEIR SUPPORT
TO ISRAEL’S RIGHT TO EXIST IN THE LAND PROMISED TO ABRAHAM
BY GOD. THIS IS CALLED THE CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT
(DANIEL 9:27 & GENESIS 15:18).
Israeli Prime Minister has openly stated that the number one goal
of his administration is to obtain the support of the international
community for ISRAEL’S FINAL BORDERS. He hopes to achieve this
by the end of 2008.
2A WAR WILL BEGIN FROM THE VICINITY OF THE EUPHRATES
RIVER (REVELATION 9:13-16).
Most of the Euphrates River is in Iraq. The United States has
140,000 troops STATIONED ALONG THE EUPHRATES at this time.
The conflict between the U.S. and Islamic Fundamentalism is not
diminishing, but increasing around the world.
3THE WEST BANK (JUDEA) IN ISRAEL WILL BECOME A PLACE OF
GREAT TRIBULATION (MATTHEW 24:15-21).
Ehud Olmert has openly said that he will withdraw from the West
Bank (Judea) by the end of 2008. Then, recently, he announced
that his convergence-withdrawal plan is off — “NO LONGER
RELEVANT.” Whether or not Israel withdraws, the prophecy is clear
that there will be slaughter in Judea.
4THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN JERUSALEM WILL BE PLACED UNDER
A SHARING ARRANGEMENT BETWEEN JEW AND GENTILE
PresidentClintonsuggested the SHARING OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT
in July of 2000. It is generally believed this is the only possible
solution to the Temple Mount dispute whenever the issue is finally
5THE JEWISH TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT
(REVELATION 11:1-2 & 2 THESSALONIANS 2:3-4).
All the furniture for ISRAEL’S THIRD TEMPLE is now complete;
Israel has her long-sought-for red heifer, which is needed before
the re-establishment of temple worship; and in June of 2005, the
newly re-born Sanhedrin announced they were proceeding with
building the temple. They intend to pre-fabricate it off-site.
OF THE WORLD COMMUNITY AND THE LEADER OF THE WORLD
COMMUNITY, THE ANTICHRIST, WILL STAND ON THE TEMPLE
MOUNT, CLAIMING TO BE GOD (2 THESSALONIANS 2:3-4).
The Temple Mount will be placed under the supervision of the
world community and the leader of the world community, THE
ANTICHRIST, will stand on the Temple Mount, claiming to be God
2000, suggested placing the Temple Mount UNDER UN CONTROL
in order to make a sharing of the Temple Mount possible. When
the UN takes control of the Temple Mount, the leader of the world
government will feel justified in claiming ultimate authority there.
7A WORLD GOVERNMENT WILL DOMINATE THE WORLD FOR
THREE AND ONE-HALF YEARS PRIOR TO ARMAGEDDON
(DANIEL 7:23 & REVELATION 13:7).
The nations of the world are increasingly recognizing the authority
of INTERNATIONAL LAW. We now have the World Bank, the World
Trade Organization, the World Health Organization and the World
Court—just to name a few. We have a World Court to adjudicate
the international laws of the emerging world government.
8EACH PERSON ON EARTH WILL BE REQUIRED TO HAVE A
MARK OR A NUMBER IN ORDER TO BUY OR SELL (REVELATION
On May 11, 2005, President Bush signed the REAL ID ACT. The law
requires that every American must have a national ID card by May
11, 2008. Without this card, a person will not be able to hold a job or
open a bank account. Without a job or a bank account, how much
buying and selling will an individual be able to do? Oh, by the way,
you can’t get your card without giving your number…your social
9THE WORLD COMMUNITY, LED BY RUSSIA AND IRAN, WILL
INVADE THE NATION OF ISRAEL (ZECHARIAH 14:2-4 &
EZEKIEL 38 & 39).
Iran (Persia) and Russia (Meshech—root word for Moscovi or
Moscow) are NOW IN ALLIANCE. Iran is the leading advocate of
“wiping Israel off the map.”
Nine speciﬁc prophecies in the Bible will occur within the ﬁnal seven years
prior to the Battle of Armageddon. By examining these prophecies, we can
get a sense of how close we are to Armageddon.

Judea = West Bank?
“They that are in Judea flee.” I have heard
this referred to as the West Bank area. I may
not understand the map, but it seemed
to me that Judea was a large area that in-
cluded Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Jericho.

and Galilee). It included the cities you men-
tion as well as additional territory in the sur-
rounding areas. A modern map that includes
times as Judea. It also includes some of the
area of Samaria (e.g. Jenin and Nablus).
THE FIRST RESURRECTION
Could you please explain Matthew 27:52-
53 what resurrection was this? I heard
a sermon the other day that stated that
this was the first resurrection that is spo-
ken of in Rev. 20:5. I realize that this is not
the first resurrection but how do you dis-
cuss this with someone who believes this.
REPLY | Revelation 20:5 follows Revelation
20:4, which describes the people who are
part of the ﬁrst resurrection. It says that they
were those who were beheaded for the wit-
ness of Jesus and the word of God, and had
not worshipped the beast or his image, and
had not taken the mark. This is certainly not
a description of those mentioned in Matthew
27. At the time of Matthew 27, there had been
no martyrdom for Jesus Christ, and the mark
of the beast system was not in place. Also,
Revelation 20:6 says that the partakers of the
ﬁrst resurrection are not aﬀected by the sec-
ond death and that they reigned with Christ
for 1000 years. For this to apply to Matthew
27, one would have to believe that the saints
who arose, continued to live on for at least
1000 years after the cruciﬁxion. That said, the
scriptures are ﬁlled with examples of people
being raised from the dead, before the “ﬁrst
resurrection” spoken of in Revelation 20. You
have the son in Nain (Luke 7), Lazarus (John
11), the saints in Matthew 27, and the Lord
Jesus himself – who is the ﬁrstfruits of them
who slept – 1 Cor 15:20. All of these involved
“resurrection,” but none of them are the event
known as “the ﬁrst resurrection.” The one in
Revelation 20:4-6 is called “the ﬁrst resurrec-
tion” and is an event yet to occur.
I just wanted to take a moment to say thank
thank you for allowing me (through dona-
tions) to be a part of the great work which

I am very interested in obtaining the teach-
ing of Irvin Baxter regarding the day that
Christ was crucified and the issue of the

ciﬁed the day before the Sabbath and rose
from the grave on the day after the Sabbath.

At first glance, this seems to indicate that Je-
sus was crucified on Friday and rose again
Sunday morning. There’s a problem with
this however. As you pointed out, the Bible
clearly states that Jesus was in the tomb for
three days and three nights. There is no way
that from Friday evening to Sunday morning
is three days and three nights. So what’s the
On special holy days, there were two Sab-
baths in one week. The crucifixion week was
Passover. These extra Sabbaths were called
“high days.” Jesus was crucified on Wednes-
day (preparation day) and was buried right
before the Sabbath began that evening. (The
Bible says concerning that Sabbath, “For it
was an high day.”) Jewish days begin at sun-
set in the evening. He was then in the tomb
Thursday evening and Thursday day, Friday
evening and Friday day, Saturday evening
and Saturday day. The Bible says that He rose
from the dead before daybreak the next day
(Sunday morning). Thus He was in the tomb
three days and three nights.
SURVIVORS AT THE BATTLE OF ARMA-
Is absolutely every living thing killed at the
end of the battle of Armaggeddon or not?
I have heard this taught both ways.
REPLY | Every living thing is definitely not
killed at the end of the Battle of Armageddon.
We know this because scripture is clear that
mankind will continue on earth for the next
1,000 years. Revelation 5:9-10 tells us the re-
deemed will reign on earth: “And they sung a
book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou
wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by
thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue,
and people, and nation; And hast made us
unto our God kings and priests: and we shall
reign on the earth.”
Furthermore, Daniel 7:11-12 states that,
when the beast is destroyed, the other beasts
(nations) have their dominion taken away,
but their lives are prolonged. This depicts the
Antichrist being destroyed at Armageddon
and the inception of the millennium.
ANTICHRIST AND FALSE PROPHET THE
SAME OR DIFFERENT?
“False prophet”is written three times in the
book of Revelation: Rev. 16:13, 19:20, and
20:10. It seems to me that the false prophet
and the antichrist are synonomous. I don’t
see the word antichrist anywhere in Rev-
elation. References are made to a “dragon
and a beast” I see that the beast in Rev.
13:1 is described as a union of different
empires, and in Rev. 13: 11, another beast is
spoken of that seems to be the one that is
empowered to force everyone to receive a
mark or an image of the first“beast.”In Rev.
19:20 the false prophet is the same as Rev.
13:13. If the antichrist and the false prophet
are different, then the antichrist would be
called the “beast” in 19:20. Is the antichrist
REPLY | The scriptures distinguish between
2 different people – the antichrist (the first
beast) and the false prophet (the second
beast). Here’s how:
- In Rev. 19:20, we read that “both were
cast alive into a lake of fire…” This verse
distinguishes between two different people.
- In Bible prophecy, there are a number of
instances where a symbolic image like a
beast is used to represent both the kingdom,
as well as the ruler of that kingdom. For
example, in Daniel 7, we read that the beasts
represent kings (v17) as well as kingdoms
(v23). The same applies to the reference to
the first beast in Revelation 13. The chapter
begins with a reference to the beast king-
dom (one world government), but then goes
on to describe this beast using terms that
are used elsewhere in scripture to describe a
single man, the antichrist (e.g. making war
with the saints, etc. – Dan 7, mouth speak-
ing great things – Dan 11) . This beast is dif-
ferent than the 2nd one mentioned later in
for causing people to worship the first beast.
2 Thessalonians 2 says that the antichrist will
set himself up as God, and be worshipped
as God. Therefore, the beast that the false
prophet is causing people to worship must be

AHMADINEJAD: IRAN HAS JOINED
CLUB OF NUCLEAR NATIONS
Iran has announced that it has begun en-
riching uranium, dramatically expanding a
program that the United Nations had de-
manded that it halt. Uranium enrichment
can produce fuel for a nuclear reactor or
material for a nuclear warhead, and the U.S.
and its allies are accusing Iran of intending
to produce weapons. Teheran denies these
U.S.’IRAN ATTACK PLANS’REVEALED
The BBC has learned that the U.S. contin-
gency plans for air strikes on Iran extend
beyond nuclear sites. If ordered, the attack
would target Iranian air bases, naval bases,
missile facilities and command-and-con-
trol centers. The United States is trying to
persuade Teheran to stop uranium enrich-
ment, but as a fallback plan, senior officials
at Central Command in Florida have already
selected their target sets inside Iran.
EXCLUSIVE: EMBASSIES IN TEHERAN
PREPARE ESCAPE PLANS
According to foreign sources, foreign diplo-
mats believe a possible attack by Western
or Israeli forces could take place before the
end of 2007. By then, Iran may have enough
enriched uranium to cause a humanitarian
and environmental catastrophe should its
nuclear facilities be damaged or destroyed
in such an attack. Foreign embassies in Te-
heran are now in the process of updating
their emergency evacuation plans.
‘DEVASTATING RESPONSE’IF IRAN
Iran is anticipating a U.S. or Israeli military
strike on its nuclear facilities. Attacks against
the Jewish state and American regional in-
terests are being planned for. “The Zionists
and the Americans are coordinated 100 per-
cent. It doesn’t matter who attacks Iran, we
are planning to hit them both,”said a Islamic

PEOPLE TRACKING PLANS

American Express to review its patent port-

SPEAKERS VOICE CONCERNS OVER
NEW IDENTITY CARDS
Lobbyists, private citizens and students
voiced their concerns over the proposed
REAL ID program at a town hall-style meet-
ing in California in early May. Officials from
the U.S. Department of Homeland Security
fielded questions. The town hall meeting
was the only one of its kind in the nation.
Support for the Real ID Act was sparse, and
those present roundly criticized the act due
to its cost, security and implementation.
Richard Holober, a representative from the
Consumer Federation of California, said the
national database would be a “one-stop
shop” for identity thieves. Walter Stanley, a
geology major at Sacramento City College,
dismissed the idea that the REAL ID pro-
gram would fight terrorism. At one point,
the meeting was interrupted for about 5
minutes by a group of approximately 50
protesters chanting, “REAL ID sounds like a
racist threat to me!”
MINNESOTA JOINS STATES BUCKING
PLAN FOR A NATIONAL ID
Minnesota and two-dozen other states are
fighting against the Real ID Act of 2005. Min-
nesota officials are estimating a $31 million
price tag over five years for the new law. Ac-
cording to state Senator Mee Moua, DFL-St.

Maine and Idaho already have passed laws

passed a joint resolution calling for the re-

of the federal law. Congressional critics have
been trying to delay the implementation of
the Real ID Act. The resolution, which calls
for Congress to repeal the act altogether,
passed the state House 49-11, but died in
the state Senate Mineral, Business and Eco-
nomic Development Committee.

underground cistern on the Temple Mount
and passages from the Mishnah, Hebrew
University archeologist Professor Joseph
Patrich says the Temple and its correspond-
ing courtyards, chambers and gates are
more southeasterly and at a diagonal frame

Patrich says the cistern is the only one found

agreed that globalization is putting forward
complex tasks and that an answer can be

If the government of the
United States passed a law
for security purposes that every American had to have a personal ID number tattooed on his or her hand,
without which that person would not be permitted to buy or sell, would you accept it?
I’m sure most of you are saying, “No way! Not over my dead body!”
Yet, such a law has already been passed with one minor difference—which really is no difference. You
won’t have the number tattooed on your hand. You only have to have the number on a card in your hand.
The bottom line is you will have the number in your hand or you will not be able to buy or sell.
The new law requires every American to have a national ID card without which you will be unable to
hold a job, and you will not be able to have a bank account. With no job and no bank account, how much
buying and selling will you be able to do? Obviously, none!
Now allow me to ask the question once again. Will you accept a number in your hand in order to keep
your job or have a bank account? Think about it very carefully. Each of us will have to answer this
question between now and May 11, 2008 when the Real ID Act is scheduled for implementation.

So…what’s it matter anyway?
The prophecy found in Revelation 13:15-18 foretells that a time
will come when every person on earth will be forced to have a
number in the hand or in the forehead, or else the individual will
not be able to buy or sell.
Has this sunk in yet? The prophecy is 2,000 years old, but it is
happening now! I’m not saying that it might happen. I’m saying that
the law is already passed by Congress and signed by our president.
We are watching the implementation in process now!
What’s behind this national ID?
The rationale being given for the creation of a national ID is to
crowd wanted a national ID long before terrorism reared its ugly
head. Twenty-seven years ago in its September 15, 1980 edition, the
U.S. News & World Report carried an editorial entitled “A National
Identity Card” by Editor Marvin Stone. In the editorial, Stone
argued that a national ID was needed to thwart illegal immigration,
protecting American jobs from illegal immigrants.
In spite of what Homeland Security is saying, the national ID is
not really a security issue. It’s all about control. You can’t control a
population unless you issue each of them a number. Then you must
force them to use that number for employment, travel, and banking.
This accomplished, you can force compliance to any mandate issued
by the government since invalidation of the person’s number renders
the individual a non-person. Economic control means controlling a
person’s ability to exist.
This is exactly what the prophecy says will happen during the time
just ahead called the great tribulation. And this is exactly what will
happen when the national ID is fully implemented.
When is a national ID card not a national ID card? When
Homeland Security says so! From the very beginning, the national ID
card has been shrouded in deception. Wanting a national ID card, but
knowing the American people would never stand for it, the decision
was made to call the national ID the Real ID. Abracadabra! Now it’s
not a national ID card!
At the recent National Forum on the Real ID held in Sacramento,
California on May 1, 2007, Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security
Richard Barth emphatically stated, “This is not a national ID!” And he
actually expected us to believe him! Of course, we didn’t.
There’s actually a very simple way to rip the cover off of this blatant
deception once and for all. Question #1: Is the Real ID an ID card?
Yes, of course. Everyone, including Homeland Security agrees. This
is an ID card.
Now, question #2: Was this ID card created by a state law or by a
national law? Why…it was created by a national law.
Then it’s a national ID card! It’s really very simple…except when
you’re trying to deceive people into accepting something they
The promoters of the national ID claim repeatedly that the Real
ID Act was a legitimately passed law of Congress. It is true that the
House of Representative did pass the Real ID Act. However, it was
suspected that much stiffer resistance would be met when the bill was
sent to the Senate.
In order to stave off the possibility of defeat of this key bill that
was at the heart of governmental planners’ vision for dramatically
increased control of the populace, the Real ID Act was stealthily
hidden on the back of a must-pass funding bill for our troops in Iraq.
The 1000-page bill passed 100-0. Think of it! A bill spelling the end of
freedom for Americans being deceitfully slipped through the Senate
on the back of funding for our troops. You have to admit…that is
politics at its finest! Many of the senators didn’t even realize until later
that they had voted for the Real ID.
if only we would’ve had a national ID card system.
The proponents of a national ID card love to repeat this myth over
and over. It is their number one selling point for the national ID.
But is it true? No. It is blatantly false! Half of the 9/11 terrorists had
legal IDs. The other half had IDs that satisfied airline standards at
the time. We can be assured that if the Real ID had been in force on
9/11, the hijackers would have made sure that each of them had the
necessary documentation to clear security. These were terrorists, but
they weren’t dumb!
If the Real ID Act is implemented, every
American will be placed in a national database.
Every time you swipe your national ID, it will be
a constant trail
of every person’s
The latest piece of ammunition in the pro-national ID arsenal is a
Zogby poll supposedly showing that 70 percent of Americans support
the introduction of national standards for driver’s licenses under the
Real ID Act.
They conveniently fail to disclose that, in the same poll, only 44
percent favored a national ID card, and 51 percent opposed a national
ID card. This huge discrepancy between what Homeland Security is
implying and the reality simply illustrates that the government’s
disinformation campaign has been very effective. The fact is that
the establishment of national standards for driver’s licenses under
the Real ID Act is the creation of a national ID card—the very
thing that 51 percent of the American people are against.
One more time…Is the Real ID a national ID? Answer: It is
an ID card, and it was created by a national law. It’s a national ID
no matter how much the Washington bureaucrats try to deceive
and deny. Still, Homeland Security continues to claim a majority
of Americans are for something that they are, in fact, against!
Again…deception, deception, deception!
No person will buy or sell without the
Those who promote the national ID would deny vehemently that
people will be placed under economic boycott unless they accept
the Real ID card. However, let’s look at the facts.
An employee verification program called Basic Pilot was started
in 1996. It is presently being used voluntarily by 5,000 employers
to check the legal status of job applicants. When a person applies
for a job, his or her social security number is submitted to the Basic
Pilot database. If the individual is not in the federal database, he or
she will not be hired.
President Bush has called on Congress to make Basic Pilot
mandatory for every employer in America and to provide the
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with the funding and
authority to make sure it is an effective tool to prevent the hiring of
illegal workers. Both the House and Senate immigration bills would
require employers to use Basic Pilot. The President’s 2007 budget
requests $111 million to expand Basic Pilot for more employers to
make use of the program. Under this proposed new law, employers
will be fined $10,000 for employing anyone not in the federal
database. If you’re not in the federal database, you cannot have a
job…anyplace in the U.S. No job…no ability to buy or sell.
And how will an individual pass the test to be included in the
Homeland Security database that will allow him to work? Never
doubt that the acid test will soon be whether a person has been
cleared for the Real ID and consequently placed in the database
shared by all fifty states.
Will a national ID work?
Not only will a national ID not weed out illegal immigrants, it
will make matters worse. Here’s why. For less than $300, an illegal
alien can buy a social security card and a birth certificate. Under
the Real ID program, these documents can then be used to obtain a
an illegal alien is supplied by the government with a certification of
legitimacy. It will be an illegal immigrants dream!
The Real ID won’t prevent illegal immigration. It will facilitate it!
The end of freedom
If the Real ID Act is implemented, every American will be placed in
a national database. Every time you swipe your national ID, it will be
recorded creating a constant trail of every person’s movements.

The purpose of the Real ID is control. Many people think that is a
good thing…but is it? Not if you believe in freedom!
Control and freedom are opposites. The proposed National ID is
nothing but the slapping of invisible electronic handcuffs on every
person in America. It is the end of freedom for the land of the free and
the home of the brave.
But if a person has done nothing wrong, what difference does it
make if the government knows where you’ve been, what you bought,
what you read and which websites you visited? Hmm…that sounds
like something Adolf Hitler would have said.
Increasing security at the price
How far are Americans willing for our government to go in insuring
our security? Total security requires total control. The safest place on
earth is in a padded cell, but who wants to live there?
Freedom requires bravery, not total security. Our national anthem
concludes with “O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.” If
we ever cease to be brave, we will no longer be free.
So what is the answer?
If a national ID is a terrible idea, then what do we do to protect our
country against terrorism? The answer is really very obvious.
What has kept us safe for the last 230 years? Our borders. The
problem we are facing today has been caused by our government’s
decision to not enforce our borders. Between 12 and 20 million
illegal immigrants don’t get into a country by accident. They arrive by
Some would make us believe that border enforcement is mission
impossible. That is totally untrue. We can enforce our borders if we
want to. Our friend Israel certainly knows how to guard its borders.
They have an electronic fence with a dirt road running along side of it.
Every four to six hours an army jeep with a sweeper attached sweeps
the dirt road, at the same time looking for footprints indicating a
border violation. If Israel, with a population of 6 million can defend
a 450-mile border, surely a country with a population of 300 million
can defend a 2,000-mile border…that is if we want to.
If our borders were properly defended, we wouldn’t have to
destroy the freedom of America by tracking everyone, everywhere.
We could live within secure borders without being numbered,
without being tracked.
Has the time come for a country where the police can pull you over
and demand “Papers please”? Will we, like the Jews in Nazi Germany,
accept being numbered? God help us to have the courage to say no
to the worst law ever passed in the history of the United States of
America! Let’s throw the Real ID Act on the trash heap of history
once and for all!
Have we Americans lost our backbone? Are we afraid to stand
up against a government that continues to become more and more
intrusive? Will we stand silently still while our governmental masters
snap the electronic handcuffs in place?
Patrick Henry said it so eloquently 232 years ago: “Is life so dear, or
peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?
Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but
as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
Somebody needs to say it again!
One more time...Is the Real ID a national ID? Answer: It is an ID card, and it was created by a national law. It’s a
national ID no matter how much the Washington bureaucrats try to deceive and deny. Still,
Homeland Security continues to claim a majority of Americans are for something that they are, in
fact, against! Again

Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.
Give Me LibertyOr Give Me Death
Give me liberty or give me death” is a famous quotation from a speech made
by Patrick Henry to the Virginia House of Burgesses. The speech was given
March 23, 1775, at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia, and is credited
with having single-handedly convinced the Virginia House of Burgesses to
pass a resolution delivering the Virginia troops to the Revolutionary War.
In attendance were Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. Reportedly,
the crowd, upon hearing the speech, jumped up and shouted, “To Arms! To
No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities,
of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different
men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will
not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions
of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely
and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The questing before the
House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it
as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the
magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in
this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility
which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at
such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty
of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty
of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We
are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that
siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in
a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number
of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which
so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of
spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and
to provide for it.
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of
experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And
judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of
the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which
gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that
insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not,
sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a
kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with
those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are
ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back
our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war
and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir,
what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission?
Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any
enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies
and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant
for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which
the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose
to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten
years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held
the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain.
Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find
which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive
ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm
which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have
supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored
its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament.
Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional
violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been
spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things,
may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer
any room for hope. If we wish to be free-- if we mean to preserve inviolate
those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if
we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so
long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the
glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must fight! I repeat it, sir,
we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an
adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the
next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard
shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and
inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely
on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies
shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper
use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The
millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country
as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can
send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just
God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends
to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the
vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base
enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no
retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking
may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable--and let it come! I
repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace--
but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from
the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are
already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish?
What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased
at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what
course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Most people have probably
heard at least one of the
following stories. Put a frog in a pot
of boiling water and he will save himself by
jumping right out. Put him in a pan of cold
water, and gradually increase the heat. You
will soon boil him to death. Want to catch
a wild hog that won’t come anywhere near
you? Put a little corn out for him in the
woods. Do that pretty regularly until he gets
used to the smell of humans and gradually
accustoms himself to eating corn. Get him to
follow your trail of corn right into an enclosure
and you capture him easily. What is the moral
of these two stories? What has this got to do
with government identification programs?

What has gradualism got to do with a national ID?
We can begin answering these questions by noting that at
the time of the American Revolution, there was little concern
for the official, civil registration of births and deaths. Even in the
Constitution there is no specific mention of vital statistics other
than the commissioning of the federal government to conduct a
census every ten years in order to determine the apportionment
of congressmen among the states. At any time prior to 1900, it
would probably have been impossible for a large portion of the
American populace to prove that they had ever been born or that
their parents were ever married, since they had no state-issued
birth or marriage certificates. Before the advent of the automobile,
there was certainly no such thing as a state-issued license to
drive a horse and wagon. Nonetheless, today, nearly everyone
has a state-issued birth certificate, and practically anyone who
drives a motor vehicle has a state-issued license extending to
them the“privilege”to do so. The constitutional directive for the
decennial census has been expanded to such an extent that
serious consideration is now being given to assigning a federal
identification number to each and every citizen and resident alien
in the United States. How did we in America move from the point
where few of our ancestors were concerned about even having
a record of their birth (much less having a public official make
that record) to the point where we are ready to accept a unique
government number to identify us? How were we convinced to
accept government numbers when our forefathers would have
bristled at the thought?
Here were some of the steps:
1639 - Massachusetts Bay Colony ordered that births and deaths
should be reported to the town clerk by parents or household
owners within one month of their occurrence. Connecticut and
other colonies followed suit in the succeeding years.
1790 - First national census conducted in accordance with Article I,
Section 2 of the US Constitution.
1842 - Massachusetts became the first state to require collection
of vital statistics (births and deaths); followed by other states
between 1850 and 1900.
1903 - Massachusetts and Missouri became the first states
to require driver’s licenses, though Missouri had no driver
examination law until 1952.
1935 - The passage of the Social Security Act“proved to be a great
stimulus”to birth certification. Many people had never considered
a birth certificate to be of any importance until old age assistance,
unemployment insurance, and other ramifications of the Social
Security Act demonstrated to them that it was necessary to have
this official proof of their existence in order to collect benefits.
1961 - The IRS demanded that all taxpayers provide their Social
Security number when paying federal taxes.
1992 - Hospital enumeration-at-birth program (assigning
newborns Social Security numbers) was begun.
Looking at this historical overview, it is easy to see how
government gradualism has prevailed. Like the frog jumping out
of boiling water, the American people would have completely
rejected a national numbering system when the Constitution was
adopted. When the first federal census was conducted in South
Carolina, the enumeration was met with considerable resistance.
Several heads of family in the Federal District for Charleston
were indicted in 1791 for“refusing to render an account of their
respective families.”George Washington, in a letter to Governor
Morris, noted that many Americans held religious scruples against
complying with the census officials, while others feared that the
census was in some way connected with taxes, and hence refused
to cooperate. However, now after nearly three hundred years of
accepting some limited forms of government enumeration, a
national ID system doesn’t sound so strange.
Clearly, people soon get used to government involvement in
their lives. Our government has always used the carrot and stick
approach to gain cooperation. It threatened punishment for not
complying with its laws; and it promised handouts for obeying.
This was the exact method used by the government’s Social
Security Administration. First it promised that a social security
number would never be used for identification purposes. Then
it promised practically free payouts to the retiring elderly if they
would only apply for a number. Then years later, the SSA and the
IRS threatened all sorts of penalties and loss of privileges if one
refused a number. By 1973, it was required that a social security
number be furnished if one were to open a personal checking
account. Later, one could not claim dependent exemptions unless
one provided their social security numbers on one’s 1040 tax form.
Today, in some states, one cannot obtain a driver’s license without
providing a social security number. What will come next?
What comes next is a compulsory, national ID. Whether
administered at the state or the federal level, each and every
person in the United States would be issued a government
identification, and would be required to use it in order to
participate in numerous activities. A true national identification
card would necessarily be universal (if not issued to every
newborn it would be issued to all children upon their reaching
a certain age) and compulsory (it would become a crime,
punishable by fine or imprisonment, to refuse to accept or use
such a document). It would also be a violation of the law to have
more than one card, to use the card of another person, or to
hold a card in the name of an alias. A national ID would act as a
domestic passport. In many countries around the world, where
such cards actually exist, they are needed to rent an apartment,
buy a home, apply for a job, pay one’s utility and telephone
bills, withdraw books from the library, or to access health care
services. They could act as a surrogate driver’s license, passport,
voter registration card, hunting/fishing license, and draft card.
With micro-chip technology, such a card would act as a complete
medical, financial, tax, and travel dossier, documenting where you
have been, how you got there, and how you paid for the services
you used. In conjunction with data reported to the Internal
Revenue Service, it would enable the government to calculate
how much you owed in taxes each year. National ID micro-chips
could be accessed by all government agencies so the card could
be used to verify that the holder had no delinquent taxes or child
support, no overdue library books, no parking fines, no bounced
checks, and no unpaid traffic violations. Micro-chips would also
have the capability to be disabled from a central government
office at the discretion of any government agency,“instantly
rendering its holder unable to travel or function in society.”In
short, government ID would be a license to live, issued by the
government. No longer would life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness be a natural, inalienable right.

Irvin Baxter outlines the history and
evolution of the New World Order,
drawing stunning parallels between
God’s Acts 2:38 plan of salvation and
Satan’s master plan.
In 2008, every American will be required
to have a National ID card. Without
it, you will not be able to drive, enter
any federal building, or open a bank
account. With the avalanche of RFID
(Radio Frequency ID) technology now
coming into use, the REAL ID Act may
very well be the point of no return for the
Mark of the Beast.

If one were a conspiracy theorist, one could claim that even
before the passage of the Social Security Act, plans were being laid
to enslave the American population by way of numbering them.
While this might be true, a more reasonable explanation is found
by examining the nature of government. Government, as George
Washington, noted is“force.”It tolerates no competition within its
domains: it is the sole monopolizer of police, courts, and defense
services AND it collects its revenues by threatening confiscation of
property or imprisonment of person if one refuses to pay its levies.
As Lord Acton observed“power corrupts.” When government
has the power to control us, it will use every strategy at its disposal
to increase the amount of taxes assessed and the ease by which
they are collected. What could make this process easier than a
numbering scheme for all its citizens?
Is it too late to resist? In one sense, yes. It is always easier to
resist at the beginning. It is also easier to refuse to cooperate
if one does not accept the basic premise adopted by one’s
opponent. In the case of the frog, the frog would have to reject
being placed in the pot of water, whether it was hot or cold. (Why
else would he be placed there - other than to cook him?) The hog
would have to be smart enough to refuse the bait. By rejecting the
free gift of corn, the hog would have prevented himself from being
gradually led down the trail to capture. The American people, by
accepting the principle that governments should be responsible
for the census and vital statistics, have been easily led down the
trail to national ID.
Although it might be hard to
imagine how this assumption
of government enumeration
power could have been averted,
there have been at least two
partially successful campaigns
against national ID. In the early
1900s, Mahatma Gandhi led a
resistance movement against
the registration of Indians in
the South African Transvaal. An
Englishman who lived there
called the registration“the
fastening of the dog’s collar”
around the neck of the Indians.
At a meeting in late 1906, Gandhi called the government’s
bill a violation of basic civil rights and urged the entire Indian
community in the Transvaal to openly resist complying with
such a law. Thus was born the idea of Satayagraha (nonviolent
resistance to unjust governmental demands), which was
successfully implemented in both the Transvaal and during the
Indian movement for independence from Great Britain after World
War II. Forty years later, a similar, massive public protest arose in
Australia when the government proposed a national ID card for all
Now that Americans are faced with a similar challenge, there
are a few general observations that we ought to remember:
In a society where the people have been issued a national ID
card by their government, they - the people - are no longer free
because their permission to live, work, and play comes from
The logical outcome of government involvement in enumeration
is the type of population control described by the authors of
such fictional disutopias as Brave New World and 1984. This is
why national ID systems have been described as“a trademark of
From the Biblical story of King David (who caused a plague
by counting his people), to the Roman censors who counted
Joseph and Mary in Bethlehem, to today’s call for national ID, the
essential purpose behind government data-gathering has always
been the same: to enhance government’s control over its subject
population. Government identification programs - whether the
censuses of antiquity, or based upon a birth certificate, a Social
Security card, a driver’s license, a smart card (the programmable
micro-chip), or even an implanted micro-chip or some other form
of biometric recognition - are all based upon the same principle:
that government has the right and necessity to track, monitor,
and control the people and property within its geographic
jurisdiction. Thus the primary danger of implementing a national
ID system in the United States is that it delivers totalitarian power
to the federal government. As political scientist, Theodore Lowi,
wrote in 1981,
“Every action and every agency of contemporary government ...
contribute to the fulfillment of its fundamental purpose, which
is to maintain conquest. Conquest manifests itself in various
forms of control, but in all those forms it is the common factor
tying together into one system the behavior of courts and cops,
sanitation workers and senators,
bureaucrats and technocrats,
attorney generals, pressure
groups and presidents.”
Although Lowi did not
include them, we might
add government health
departments (that issue birth
certificates), government motor
vehicle administrations (that
issue driver’s licenses), the
Immigration and Natural
ization Service (which is
responsible for keeping track of
aliens within the United States),
and the Office of Homeland
Security (which is responsible for protecting us from terrorists).
If and when it comes, a national ID program will fit hand in
glove with Lowi’s description of the“fundamental purpose”of
government which is“to maintain conquest.”
In making their ultimate decision whether to accept or reject a
national ID, Americans need to remember two things:
First, a national ID and enhanced governmental powers always go
hand in hand.
Second, for thousand of years, people have lived, died, and
prospered without government ID. If they could do it, we certainly
can. Sure, it is necessary that we have food, shelter, and clothing
but that doesn’t mean that our government must compulsorily
supply us with these things any more than it needs to furnish
each of us with a national ID number.

Here’s the story taken from Islamic folklore. Judge
for yourself. Prophet Ibrahim, The father of the Prophets
The birth of a Great Prophet
Ibrahim was born in a house of idolaters, in the kingdom of
Babylon. His father Aazar was a well-known idol sculptor that his
people worshipped. As a young child, Ibrahim used to watch his
father sculpting these idols from stones or wood. When his father
was done with them, Ibrahim would use them as toys, riding on their
backs, and kicking them at times. Then after a while, he would see
these same statues in the temple, and people prostrating in front
of them! Ibrahim asked his father: “Why do you take these toys to
the temple?” His father said: “They are statues that represent our
gods. We worship them, we ask favors from them, and we oﬀer them
presents.” Ibrahim’s mind rejected this idea, and he felt repulsion
towards the idols.
In search for the Truth
Time went by, and Ibrahim became a young man. He still
could not believe that his people were worshipping the statues. He
laughed whenever he saw them entering the temple, lowering their
heads, silently oﬀering the statues the best of their food, crying and
asking forgiveness from them. He started feeling angry towards his
people, who could not realize that these are only stones that could
neither beneﬁt nor harm them. They could not be gods. They have no
power. God is Greater than what his people were worshipping, Most
Powerful, Most Magniﬁcent. One could not ﬁnd Him sitting on a table
in a temple!
One night, Ibrahim went up to the mountain, leaned against
a rock, and looked up to the sky. He saw a shining star, and told his
people: “Could this be my Lord?” But when it set he said: “I don’t like
those that set.” The star has disappeared, it could not be God. God
is always present. Then he saw the moon rising in splendor and told
them: “Could this be my Lord?” But it also set. At daybreak, he saw the
sun rising and said: “Could this be my Lord, this is bigger?” But when
the sun set, he said: “O my people I am free from all that you join as
partners with Allah! I have turned my face towards Him Who created
the heavens and the earth, and never shall I give partners to Allah.”
Our Lord is the Creator of the heavens and the earth and everything.
He has the power to make the stars rise and set. Ibrahim then heard
Allah calling him: “O Ibrahim!”
Ibrahim said trembling: “Here I am O my Lord!”
“Submit to Me! Be a Muslim!” the voice said.
Ibrahim fell on the ground, prostrating and crying, he said: “I
submit to the Lord of the universe!” Ibrahim kept prostrating until
night came again. He got up and went back to his home, in peace, full
of conviction that Allah has guided him to the Truth.
Ibrahim invites his father to Islam
A new life started for Ibrahim. His mission now was to call
his people to the Truth. He would start with his father who was the
closest person to him, and whom he loved so much. He said to him
in the softest and kindest voice: “O father! Why do you worship that
which doesn’t hear, doesn’t see, and cannot avail you in anything? O
father, I have gotten knowledge which you have not, so follow me. I
will guide you to a straight path.”
His father replied angrily: “Do you reject my gods, O Ibrahim? If
you don’t stop I will stone you. Get away from me before I punish you.”
Ibrahim said: “Peace be on you! I will ask forgiveness of my Lord
Ibrahim confronts his people
and rejects their idols
He left his father after he lost hope to convert him to the right
path, and directed his eﬀorts towards the people of the town, but they
rejected his call and threatened him. By Allah, he said, I shall plot a
plan to destroy their idols. He knew that a big celebration was coming
soon, where everybody would leave town for a big feast on the
riverbank. After making sure that nobody was left in town, Ibrahim
went towards the temple armed with an ax. Statues of all shapes and
sizes were sitting there adorned with decorations. Plates of food were
oﬀered to them, but the food was untouched. “Well, why don’t you
eat? The food is getting cold,” he said to the statues, joking. Then with
his ax he destroyed all the statues except one, the biggest of them. He
hung the ax around its neck and left.
How big was the shock when the people entered the temple!
They gathered inside watching in awe their gods broken in pieces.
They wondered who might have done this? Then they all remembered
that the young Ibrahim was talking evil of their idols. They brought
him to the temple and asked him: “Are you the one who has done this
to our gods?”
Ibrahim said: “No, this statue, the biggest of them has done it.
Ask them if they can speak.”
“You know well that these idols don’t speak!” they said
“Then how come you worship things that can neither speak
nor see, nor even fend for themselves? Have you lost your minds?”
They kept silent for a while, for he got a point there. Their minds
and their senses were telling them that the Truth is with Ibrahim, but
their pride prevented them from accepting it, and from rejecting the
idols they were worshipping for generations. This they thought would
be total defeat. They started yelling at him and shouting: “Burn him!
Burn him! Take revenge for your gods!”
The Miracle: Allah saves
Ibrahim from the ﬁre.
The decision to burn Ibrahim to death was aﬃrmed by the
priests and the king of Babylon, Nimrod. The news spread like a ﬁre in
the kingdom, and people were coming from all places to watch the
execution. A huge pit was dug up and a large quantity of wood was
piled up. Then the biggest ﬁre people ever witnessed was lit. The ﬁre
ﬂames were so high up in the sky that the birds could not ﬂy over it for
fear of being burned!
Ibrahim’s hands and feet were chained, and he was put in a
catapult to throw him into the ﬁre. At that time, Angel Jibreel came to
him and said: “O Ibrahim! Is there anything you wish for?”
Ibrahim could have asked to be saved from the ﬁre, to be taken away,
but no, he said: “I only wish that Allah be pleased with me.”
The catapult was released, and Ibrahim was thrown in the
heart of the ﬁre. But Allah would not allow His Prophet to be killed.
He ordered the ﬁre: “O ﬁre! Be coolness and safety for Ibrahim!” And
the miracle happened. The ﬁre obeyed and burned only his chains.
Ibrahim came out from it as if he was coming out from a garden,
peaceful, his face illuminated, and not a trace of smoke on his clothes.
People watched in shock and said: “Amazing! Ibrahim’s God has
saved him from the ﬁre!”
Ibrahim debates the
Babylonian king, Nimrod
Ibrahim’s notoriety grew bigger after this event, and the king
of Babylon felt that his throne was in danger, and that he was losing
power because he was pretending that he was a god. He sent for
Ibrahim. He wanted to debate with him and show his people that he,
the king is indeed the god, and Ibrahim was a liar. He asked Ibrahim:
What can your god do that I cannot?
“My Lord is He Who gives life and death.” Ibrahim said.
“I give life and death. I can bring a person from the street and
have him executed, and I can grant my pardon to a person who was
sentenced to death and save his life,” the king said proudly.
“Well, my Lord Allah makes the sun rise from the East. Can you
make it rise from the West?” Ibrahim countered.
The king was confounded. He was beaten at his own game, on
his own territory, in front of his own people! Ibrahim left him there
speechless and went back to his important mission, calling people to
worship the one and only God, Allah.
Allah blesses Ibrahim with
a son to become a prophet
Only a woman named Sarah and a man named Lot believed
in Allah, and followed Ibrahim. He realized that nobody else would
listen to him, and decided to emigrate for the cause of Allah, and to
spread His Message elsewhere. Before leaving, he tried once again to
convert his father to Islam, but to no avail. Ibrahim said to his father
and his people: “We are free of you and of whatever you worship
besides Allah. We have rejected you, and there has arisen between us
and you enmity and hatred forever unless you believe in Allah and
Ibrahim, Lot and Sarah started their long travel. They crossed
Babylon, went through Syria and Palestine calling people to Allah,
helping the poor and doing good deeds. By that time Ibrahim
married Sarah. Their hope was to have children who would spread
the Message of Allah after their death. As for Lot, he emigrated to the
land of Sodom and settled there.
Time went by and no children were born to Sarah. She realized
she was sterile. She accepted her fate and submitted to the will of
Allah. Ibrahim and Sarah moved to Egypt where the king gave Sarah
a woman to be her servant. The woman’s name was Hajar. Sarah
was seeing Ibrahim’ s hair getting white, and it grieved her to see
his chance of having a child slipping away. She oﬀered Hajar her
servant as a wife to her husband, and prayed Allah to bless Hajar and
Ibrahim with a child. And so came Ismail, a baby boy born to Hajar.
How unselﬁsh Sarah was! For her, the need to have an oﬀspring who
would carry the Message after Ibrahim was greater than her pride.
Fourteen years later, Allah rewarded Sarah with a son, Ishaq, in spite
of her old age.
Young Ismail and his mother
alone in the desert of Makkah
Ibrahim woke up one day and asked Hajar to prepare herself
and baby Ismail for a long travel. Ibrahim and Hajar kept walking,
crossed a fertile land followed by barren mountains till they arrived
at the Arabian Desert. Ibrahim brought Hajar to a high hill called al-
Marwa, made her and her baby sit under a tree, placed a bag of dates
and some water near her, and set out homeward. Hajar ran after him
and said: “Are you going to leave us in this desert where there is

no one to keep us company?” She repeated this many times but he
would not look back at her. She asked: “Has Allah ordered you to do
so?” He said yes. “Then He will not neglect us.” She said.
Ibrahim walked away until he got out of their sight, he raised
his hands and prayed Allah: “O our Lord! I have made some of my
oﬀspring dwell in a valley with no cultivation, by Your Sacred House,
in order that they may oﬀer prayers. So ﬁll some hearts among men
with love towards them, and provide them with fruits, so that they
may give thanks.”
Hajar went on nursing Ismail and drinking from the water
until it was all used up. She became very thirsty and the child was
crying. She left him on the al-Marwa hill and hurried to the nearest
hill, as-Safa. She stood there and started looking at the valley keenly
so that she might see somebody, but she could not see anybody. She
descended from as-Safa, crossed the valley running and reached
al-Marwa hill. She stood and started looking but could see nobody.
She kept running between as-Safa and al-Marwa seven times. When
she reached al-Marwa for the last time, she was exhausted. She sat
next to the baby. Then she heard a voice. She stood up and said: “O
whoever you might be! Have you got something to help me?’ She saw
an angel, Angel Jibreel, digging the earth until water ﬂowed! She built
a little basin around it. She scooped water with her hands, drank,
ﬁlled her water-skin, and nursed her baby. The place from which
water ﬂowed was Zamzam. Muslims till this day drink from the holy
water of Zamzam, and during Hajj they walk between as-Safa and
al-Marwa seven times to commemorate this event.
Some Arabs traveling through Makkah saw birds ﬂying around
al-Marwa. “They must be ﬂying around water,” they said. When they
arrived at the water, they found Hajar and asked her: “Would you
allow us to stay with you, and use the water from your well?” She
agreed and was pleased by their company. The people sent for their
families, settled there and became permanent residents. The whole
valley became alive. Ismail grew up, learned Arabic, and later married
a woman from amongst the Arabs.
Meanwhile, Ibrahim, who had not seen his son since he was a
baby, came back to Makkah to visit him. Upon arriving, he heard that
Hajar had died, but Ismail was still living there. Ibrahim was yearning
to see his son whom he loved and missed a lot. He saw Ismail under
a tree near Zamzam, sharpening his arrows. When he saw his father,
Ismail rose up, hugged him and greeted him. It was the happiest
moment for both father and son.
But Allah wanted to put them to test, and it was a tough test
indeed. During one night, Ibrahim had a dream. He came to Ismail
and said: “O my son! I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering
you as a sacriﬁce to Allah, so what do you think?” They both realized
that this was an order from Allah.
Ismail said without hesitation: “Do what you are commanded,
you shall ﬁnd me very patient and shall Allah.” They had both
submitted to the will of Allah. Ibrahim laid his son prostrate, put his
forehead on the ground and directed a sharp knife towards his neck.
At this very moment, Allah called him: “O Ibrahim! You have
fulﬁlled the dream! Thus do We reward the good doers!” A big sheep
was sent down from heaven to be slaughtered instead of Ismail,
which Ibrahim did, and they both had a big celebration that day. This
event is celebrated every year by all Muslims. It is Eid al-Adha where
we slaughter the sacriﬁcial sheep.
Ibrahim and Ismail kept on calling people to worship Allah. At
that time there was no place built for the worship of Allah. Ibrahim
wished there could be such a place where people would be in
peace, and concentrate solely for the worship of Allah. His wish was
answered when Allah ordered him to build the Sacred House, the
Ka’bah. Ibrahim said to Ismail: “O Ismail, Allah has given me an order,
will you help me execute it?”
“Yes I will.” Ismail said. “Allah has ordered me to build a house
here,” he said, pointing to a hillock higher than the land surrounding
it. They went towards the place and started building the foundations
of the Ka’bah. Ismail brought the stones and Ibrahim built the walls,
and when the walls became high, Ismail brought a large stone and
put it in front of his father who stood over it and carried on building,
while Ismail was handing him the stones. Both of them went on
building and going around the Ka’bah, saying: “O our Lord accept this
service from us.”
When they ﬁnished the building, Angel Jibreel descended from
heaven and showed Ibrahim the rituals of Hajj. Then Ibrahim stepped
on the stone and called on people: “O people obey your Lord.” This
large stone which Ibrahim stepped on is still there to this day near the
Ka’bah. It is called Makam Ibrahim.
Thus ends the story of Ibrahim, the father of the prophets. From him
descended all the prophets who came later, including Muhammad,
sallallahu alayhe wa sallam. Ibrahim devoted all his life calling
others to the True religion: Islam. Alone he stood against his people,
his father, and even the mighty king of Babylon, and never ﬂinched.
Yet his method was always to gradually persuade them by bringing
irrefutable proofs, that most often embarrassed those who refused to
accept the Truth, but as Allah said: “Any whom Allah leaves to stray,
there is none to guide!”
This story about Abraham’s ax and the offering of Ismail is
obviously not true, since it directly contradicts the Bible. However,
could this story have provided the inspiration for America’s
greatest mass murder and the inscription ISMAIL AX?
Perhaps someday we will know if the government or NBC
ever releases the other eighteen pages of the Cho manifesto. Until
then, we wonder!
