Sermonette for Saturday

But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned, if the sword come and take any person from among them, he is taken in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand. Ezekiel 33:6

Across the Canadian Arctic region is a series of bases and tracking stations that belong to NORAD – the North American Aerospace Defence Command. Although its mission is seen as less critical in these post-Cold War days, it is tasked with preventing enemies from attacking Canada and the United States. At one time, the threat was very real and very much in the minds of our nations’ leaders, as those of us know who remember the Cuban Missile Crisis of October, 1962, in which the world approached as closely as it ever has to the brink of nuclear war. Those of us who remember the pictures of Soviet leader Nikita Krushchev insanely pounding the podium at the United Nations with his shoe understand the threat of the Soviet Union in those days. Moscow’s iron grip had subjected huge segments of humanity to the slavery of its ideology and degradation. Would NORAD’s warning systems alert Canadian and American cities in time to defend against Soviet missiles and bombers approaching over the North Pole? We certainly hoped so at the time. An even greater threat faces humanity now, in the advance of Mohammed’s hellish doctrines into western society. What are our defences and warning systems against that?

We like to think that the Gospel is reaching souls and that progress is being made in penetrating areas where Christ and His saving grace have not yet been proclaimed. That may be true. But it’s not true in North America. The number of Moslems is rising rapidly, while the number of Christians – even nominal Christians, is rapidly declining. When those numbers intersect, when the number of Moslems exceed those of Christians, we will have to hide our Bibles, close our Gospel Halls, and gather to worship in secret. Women will have to remain at home, prophet deniers will be jailed and tortured, or worse, and all important decisions in the nation will have to be approved by fanatic religious leaders. The CBC’s so-called comedy about a mosque on the prairie will not be so funny then. Experts tell us that the trend is definite, and probably irreversible. It is going to happen, the only question is when.

Why am I speaking so bluntly about this horrendous danger that is Mohammedanism? Because I must, according to today’s text. Unless I issue a warning about this oncoming horror, I will be responsible for what harm comes on you for not being aware.

Will the Rapture occur before the Moslems take over? Will we use this warning to reach out in deep concern to the unsaved, while there is yet time? -Jim MacIntosh
