Muslims around the world observe the holiest month on the Muslim calendar, Ramadan

The new moon has indicated the beginning of Ramadan, the Muslims holy month of fasting, and practicing Muslims around the world will refrain from eating and drinking during daylight along with other restrictions and prayers in a long list of religious rituals in the Islamic faith.

Ramadan, the ninth month on the Islamic calendar, is what Muslims deem the holiest month of the year and believe it to be the month when the Koran was first revealed to the prophet Mohammad, founder of Islam, through the angel Gabriel. Marking this event, Muslims strive to get closer to Allah, their divine, by good deeds, fasting, and paying alms to the poor with restrictions on bad language, inappropriate manners, and sexual relations all during the month of Ramadan.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Muslim observance of Ramadan strikes a blow at the prophetic truths that can be found in the Bible, the Holy Book that predicts the future.

The month long fast in the Muslim world during the Muslim month of Ramadan marks an attack on the people of the Book, the Bible, the people known as Jews and Christians. Ramadan is the month that supposedly the angel Gabriel gave the Muslim prophet Mohammad the Islamic holy book the Koran. The Koran itself introduces the doctrine of abrogation, meaning that Muslims believe that the Koran is the last and final word from god, and that all previous holy books, i.e. the Bible, are abrogated, changed and made to conform to what the Koran says is truth. For example, the Koran says that Allah, the Muslim god, never had a son and it says that Jesus Christ never died and thus never resurrected from the dead. The Koran also says that Jesus Christ is not the coming Messiah who will rule and reign over the universe from His Temple in Jerusalem.

The Koran is wrong. The Bible says Jesus is the Son of God and to those who believe otherwise, He sets aside as Antichrists, that's I John 4:1-3. I Corinthians 15 says that Jesus Christ did die and He resurrected from the dead, and it also says that He is coming again. Revelation 19 says He will be King of Kings and Lord of Lords and rule the entire universe.

True Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
