Listen to Today's Program Play

Moslems around the world will fast for the thirty days of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan to celebrate the giving of the Koran, the Moslem holy book, by the angel Gabriel to the prophet Mohammad, the prophet of the Islamic god Allah. The Moslems will fast from sun up to sundown and then join together in a festive time of celebration during the nighttime hours honoring the Koran which along with the Hadith, are the two sacred books of Islam.

Arab governments in the Middle East are prepared for increased tensions during Ramadan fearing that it may reignite the smouldering flames of uprisings that have swept the region recently.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Moslem holy month of Ramadan marks the giving of the Islamic holy book to Moslems, a book which calls for the fulfillment of prophecy found in the Bible, the Jewish holy book, according to Bible prophecy.

According to Moslems, the angel Gabriel dictated the Koran, the Moslem holy book, to the prophet Mohammad, over 1400 years ago. The Koran along with the Hadith, the sayings of Mohammad, are the two sacred books for the Moslems. The Koran calls for Moslems around the world to fast during the daylight hours and feast during the nighttime to celebrate Mohammad receiving the Koran and passing it along to all Moslems.

The Koran calls for Islamic jihad which means "holy war", a religious war focused on the Jewish people and their conversion or annihilation. In fact, all non-believing people must convert to Islam or die, according to the radicals of the Islamic faith.

The ancient Jewish prophets wrote over 2500 years ago of just such a prophetic scenario. Both Daniel and Ezekiel foretold of a group of nations that would in the last days attack Israel to eliminate the Jewish state (Daniel 11, Ezekiel 38). The lowest common denominator of the list of Middle Eastern nations that form this alignment against Israel is that they are all Moslems.

As Moslems celebrate Ramadan celebrating the giving of the Koran, tensions will indeed rise and ultimately play out the end times scenario that can be found in the Bible. Bible prophecy will indeed be fulfilled.
