Why Akathleptos?

Why Akathleptos? Because it means Uncontainable. God is infinite. Hence, the whole universe cannot contain Him. The term also refers to the incomprehensibility of God. No man can know everything about God. We can know Him personally but not exhaustively, not even in Heaven.

Why Patmos? Because the church is increasingly marginalized and exiled from the culture.

Why Pen-Names? So the focus is on the words and not who wrote them. We prefer to let what we say stand on its own merit. There is precedent in church history for this - i.e., the elusive identity of Ambrosiaster who wrote in the 4th century A.D.

The Hijrah Invasion of the West


Hijrah, or jihad by emigration, is according to Islamic tradition, the migration or journey of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Yathrib, later renamed by him as Medina in the year 622 AD. It was after the hijrah that Muhammad for the first time became not just a teacher of religious ideas, but also a political and military leader. That occasioned his new “revelations” exhorting his followers to commit violence against unbelievers. Significantly, the Islamic calendar counts the hijrah, not Muhammad’s birth or the occasion of his first “revelation” as the beginning of Islam, implying that Islam is not complete without a political and military component.

To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there - is considered in Islam a highly meritorious act. “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance,” says the Qur’an. “And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.” (4:100).

The Western world is under assault by an Islamic invasion. But the Muslims aren’t coming in uniforms and carrying weapons. They’re arriving en masse with the assistance of naive Western governments. Some call it refugee resettlement. Others simply believe it is just immigration. Few are willing to call it what it is – hijrah - an “act of conquest" according to traditional Islam. One of those few is Paul Nehlen, producer and director of the new documentary “Hijrah: Radical Islam’s Global Invasion.” Nehlen accuses that the mainstream establishment media are complicit in covering up the truth about what Islam truly represents.

“When the media talks about religion, they pick out the pieces they want to talk about, the narrative they want to share or spin,” he says in the film. “But what we’re going to talk about is political Islam. We’re going to talk about how Islam developed over the years, and what basic tenets of Islam have been the same from the time it was created until now. … It’s different from what the mainstream media will tell you. It’s the truth.”

The purpose of the documentary is to introduce Westerners to the double meaning in the term “hijrah.” Nehlen argues the media is eager to project an innocent meaning onto the term, which is often used to refer to the journey of the Islamic prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina. It can also be used in a more abstract, spiritual context as a kind of “flight from sin.” But Nehlen says there is a more sinister meaning, as the term can also refer to conquest via immigration.

“Learning the dual meanings of the word ‘hijrah’ is critical to your understanding of the manufactured refugee crisis and the migration in the name of Allah,” Nehlen proclaims in the film.

Muslim leaders with direct connections to the Muslim Brotherhood have covertly that immigration is part of the movement’s strategy to take over the West. Counter-terrorism expert and former Department of Homeland Security Agent Philip Haney also argues immigration is a tool Islamic radicals use to pursue their goal of conquest.

“We always have to come back again to this gravitational force of Shariah,” said Haney. “The power that drives the global Islamic movement isn’t actually jihad. It is the goal to implement global Shariah law. Jihad is the tactic that is employed via various kaleidoscopic forms by the different groups that are all seeking the same thing.”

The end goal of imposing Shariah law is the driving force behind the global Islamic movement. And Nehlen assembles reams of evidence in “Hijrah” to show how mass immigration and “refugee resettlement” are furthering the core objective of the jihadists.

There is no question that the Muslim hijrah underway into the West poses real problems for the stability of western civilization. Some see it as the beginning of an Islamic worldwide quest for power ultimately culminating in the rise of the prophesied antichrist who will be Muslim.

I'm not so sure.

David Reagan makes a strong argument here for the traditional understanding with his most powerful argument being Dan 9:26. He offers the following perspective on Islam at the end of the age ...

Rather than a great Muslim triumph under the leadership of a Muslim Antichrist, I believe the most likely end-time scenario for the Muslim world will be one of overwhelming defeat, first in the regional wars of Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 and then in the world wars of Revelation 6, 8 and 9. Muslim power in the Middle East will be dealt a terrible blow in the wars of Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38, both of which I think will most likely occur before the beginning of the Tribulation.

But the biggest portion of the Muslim world lives outside the Middle East. The largest Muslim nations today are Indonesia, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh. It is these nations that I believe will offer the strongest resistance to the European Antichrist, and I believe they will be destroyed in the world war the Antichrist will launch, a war that begins as a conventional one in Revelation 6 but which appears to eventually morph into a nuclear one in Revelation 8 and 9, resulting in the destruction of one half’s the earth’s population.

Regardless, it's important to understand that - if left unchecked - the Islamic hijrah underway into the west is a serious threat to our way of life. Ironically the progressive liberals that support it will be among the very first casualties. They are gullibly swallowing a poison pill.
