Millions of Moslems worldwide celebrate the festival of sacrifice in contradiction of the Bible

Listen to Today's Program Play

The annual Islamic festival of sacrifice was marked again this year by millions of Moslems worldwide celebrating Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael as an act of obedience to Allah, the Islamic god. This Moslem holiday is commemorated annually approximately 70 days after the end of the month of Ramadan, which is the 30 day fast that honors the giving of the Koran supposedly by the angel Gabriel to the Moslem prophet Mohammad.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The celebration of the festival of sacrifice by millions of Moslems around the world is an effort to deny the Word of God, the Bible, and the prophetic passages in the Bible that will be fulfilled.

On an annual basis the millions of Moslems in our world today hold the festival of sacrifice which is an effort to abrogate the record of what Abraham really did with one of his sons some 4000 years ago. Islam, a religion that came into existence around 1400 years ago, reports that Abraham took his son Ishmael to an alter to offer as a sacrifice to God. According to the Bible, the holy book of Jews and Christians, the offer of Abraham's son took place on Mount Moriah in the land of Israel, that is according to Genesis 22. And by the way, the son offered as a sacrifice by Abraham was Isaac, not Ishmael as reported by Islam.

This effort to distort the Bible's account of Abraham's sacrifice is part of the Islamic doctrine of abrogation, the act of abrogating the truth, changing the facts which are recorded in the Bible. The Koran, according to Islam, is the word of Allah, the Islamic god, to mankind through Mohammad which is in contradiction to the Bible, the holy book for Christians and Jews, in many areas especially in eschatology, the study of end time events. Islam believes the mahdi, the Islamic messiah, will come to earth and convert the world to Islam. The Bible reveals that the Messiah, Jesus Christ, will come back and set up His worldwide kingdom from Mount Moriah, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem (Zechariah 6:13, Revelation 20:4-6). Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
