Beware What the Enemy Wears

Slide4

We have to BEWARE what the enemy WEARS.

“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?” – Matt. 7:15-16

It is a grave mistake to think that it will be easy to spot the enemy as he infiltrates. It will not be obvious, but his fruit will be.

The fruit of the enemy is confusion, division, and strife.

Let’s take the most notorious wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing in history: Judas Iscariot. He wore the mask of friend & follower, but proved to be fake as revealed by his fruit. Even the disciples did not know who it was Jesus was talking about when He said one of them would be tray Him (Matt. 26:21-22). They were all duped… except Jesus, who sees into the heart of man (Jer. 17:10).

Here is the devil’s clothing line: Pride, vanity, bitterness, unforgiveness, fear, pain, misery, selfishness, empathy, complaints, entitlement, rudeness, ungratefulness… any of this sounding familiar?

Ever see the knock-off version of stuff; fake Rolexes, knock-off designer purses, etc.? That’s the devil. He’s an imposter. He’s a pretender. He’s just a tourist.

We have the real thing; King Jesus. Why accept a substitute?

Beware what the enemy wears; it leads to death.


 

How Islam Treats Women

Please take a minute to educate yourself on how Islam treats women.*
Using specific verses from the Qur’an:
• Sura 4:34 – Men can beat their wife.
• Sura 3:4 – Men can marry up to 4 wives… except Muhammad, he can marry as many as he likes (Sura 3:50). He married 12 by the way – one of whom was 6 years old when married and 9 years old when consummated (he was 53).
• Sura: 4:11 – Men get twice as much as women in inheritance
• Sura 4:31 – Women must “lower their gaze” as to not look directly at men.
• Sura 3:14 – Women are “a thing” akin to property.
• Sura 2:223 – Women are “a field to be plowed.”
• Hadith Bukhar 1:6:301  (a secondary source to the Qur’an)- Hell is filled 2/3 with women.
• Sura 19:27 – Muhammad thought that Mary was the “sister of Aaron” (mistaking her for Miriam… close; only off by 1,500 years or so)
Compare this with ANY teaching from Jesus about women:
