Islam's Best Friend in the Day of the Lord!




















During the time of the seven year tribulation period the godless gentile world will be seeking the complete annihilation and destruction of the Jews, the nation of Israel and Almighty God's Two Witnesses and messengers (Zech. 14:2, Dan. 9:27, Rev. 11:3-6, 12:6-17; 13:7 17:14). It will be during this time (after the Rapture of the Church), that Almighty God's newly chosen army of BELIEVING evangelical Jews in the Messiah of Israel will GO FORTH into the entire world giving the Gospel of Salvation unto ALL gentiles nations (Matt. 24:14, Acts 17:30-31, Rev. 7:9-10)! One particular group which these newly BELIEVING Jews will seek to reach will be their arch enemy of one billion individuals of Islam, whose zeal and hostility toward Israel at present and then will be raging. These Jewish evangelist (during this time) will be sealed by Almighty God for a great Divine task (Rev. 7:1-10). These messengers of Almighty God will lead countless individuals from among the nations to the ETERNAL saving knowledge of the Messiah of Israel, the Savior of the World (Gen. 18:8, 22:18, 26:4, Matt 24:14, John 3:16-17, Gal. 3:8). What is most amazing is that a great number of these individuals will be those of the Muslim people.

One particular group who these newly BELIEVING Jews will seek to reach will be their arch enemy of one billion individuals of Islam.


Today, Islamic nations completely surround and engulf the land of Israel. Israel - as it were - as an atoll in the great Pacific Ocean. Again it will be during this time of the horrific seven year tribulation period (Rev.6-16) that countless followers of Islam will abandon their spiritual ideology for HEAVENLY REALITY and RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rom. 10:2-4). They will OPEN their hearts and minds and cast off their oppressive Islamic ideological shackles and will come to FULLY acknowledge the RIGHTEOUS REALITY that the Messiah (Jesus Christ) of Israel IS also the Savior of the world (Gen. 18:8, 22:18, 26:4, John 3:16-17, Gal. 3:8). When these Muslim individuals come to see this REALITY for all that it is worth, they will be radically transformed and will worship and serve Almighty God their Creator in SPIRIT and TRUTH (John 4:24, 17:17)! They will love NOT their lives unto death and will profess to their fellow Muslim brethren that Jesus Messiah Saves (Rev.12:11)!


Even today, countless thousands of Muslims each year are leaving the oppressive and fatalistic delusion of the Islamic religion (i.e, spiritual philosophy).


Even today, countless thousands of Muslims each year are leaving the oppressive and fatalistic delusion of the Islamic religion (i.e, spiritual philosophy). These masses have come to a saving knowledge of Jesus the Messiah, the Savior of the world (John 14:6, Acts 4:12) and have found that it is He ALONE who truly saves and loves and is truly full of all GRACE and MERCY (Isa. 60:1-3, Micah 4:1-3, Zech. 8:21-23, Matt. 8:11,John 3:1:17)!


One particular group of people - in which countless individuals will come to a saving knowledge of the Messiah of Israel - will be the Muslim people, who completely surround the land of Israel.


It will be also during the first half of the "seven year tribulation" that countless Muslims from Egypt, Libya, Turkey, Syria, Gaza, Lebanon, Jordon, Iraq, Iran etc. will come to a SAVING KNOWLEDGE of the Messiah of Israel by the preaching and teaching of the Two Witnesses of Israel (i.e, MOSES and ELIJAH). Islam has the greatest respect for MOSES and ELIJAH. It will be by these very two patriarchs of old that Almighty God will send (after the Rapture) and it will be by their MIGHTY ministry that they will lead a remnant of Jews to a saving knowledge to their Messiah and countless Muslims also  (Matt. 8:11, 25: 31-40, Luke 13:29, Rev. 7:13-17; 14). Many Muslims will lose their lives for their obedience to Israel's Messiah the Lord Jesus, the Savior of the world, but at the end of this seven year tribulation age - these individuals will be resurrected and given glorified bodies and dwell in the Kingdom age with the Messiah of Israel (Rev. 20:4)!

During the "seven year tribulation", countless Muslims will come to a saving knowledge of the Messiah of Israel by the preaching and teaching of the Two Witnesses of Israel and their 144,000 Jewish disciples.

It will be that at the end of this EXPONENTIALLY horrific time period (Isa. 24:5-6, Rev.19:11-21) that all who know the Lord as Savior and survive this catastrophic period (including saved Muslims will enter in to the Kingdom of Heaven under the reign of the Messiah of Israel (i.e., the Lord Jesus Christ) and truly enjoy the fullness of joy with their Savior and Maker, the Triune God (Isa. 2:2-3; 60, Micah 4:1-3, Zech. 8:22-23, 14:8-21, Matt. 25:31-34)!

The countless inhabitants from Islamic nations, who have come to a saving knowledge of the Messiah of Israel during this tribulation period will be LOVED and PROVIDED for in the Messiah's 1000 year reign and for ALL ETERNITY  (Isa. 19:20-25, Rom. 5:10, Eph. 2:3-5, Col. 1:20-21). Oh my beloved, can you not just rejoice in the WONDROUS GRACE AND MERCY of Almighty God!!!

"In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. "In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance" (Isa. 19:23-25).
.
"Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Rom. 5:20)

My friend, it is our earnest desire and prayer that many would come to a saving knowledge of the Savior of the world before the Day of the Lord begins! It is ONLY by and through the LOVE of Almighty God that enemies can become reconciled and become brothers and co -labors for the glory of God (Rom. 3:22, 29, 1 Cor. 5:14,12:13, Gal. 3:8,26, Eph 2:14).  It is our sincere desire that many would come out of Islam in these days before the Day of the Lord and into a saving relationship to the ONLY TRUE Savior for this fallen world, the Lord Jesus Christ! (John 3:16-17)

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Dude, You’re So Negative!














My dear friends and to those of the Ignorant Fishermen brigade, we receive many emails and comments referring to how “NEGATIVE” our evaluation and diagnoses of the current state of our nation and the world in general is. We constantly hear the subjective scoffing such as…”You’re guys are a bunch of defeatist and quitters”. You are a bunch of “doom and gloomers”. You are causing strife and division among “Christians”. “You’re crazy and nuts and who do you think you are to say such things…?” “You are preaching hate” and my personal favorite, “The “god” I serve would NEVER let these things happen you hater and self righteous bigot”. Well… it’s never a dull movement here at the IFB… that there... is for sure… but it’s all good my friends and we are not detoured, for we are extremely confident and bold in the Lord for YOUR sakes and in His precious Word and ETERNAL promises for ALL (2 Cor. 1:20, 2 Peter 1:4). We are not moved by the negative and sometimes downright hate that is lashed out at us, for how could we be when Almighty God’s Word has NEVER been so abundant for ALL to possess and clear for ALL to understand. We can see His prophetic truths of His soon return materializing right before our very eyes which is absolutely amazing! God’s Word burns in our hearts and why should it not?

We are not moved by the negative and sometimes downright hate that is lashed out at us, for how could we be when Almighty God’s Word has NEVER been so abundant for all to possess and clear for all to understand.

Who cannot be saved and read these personal positive wonderful truths of Almighty God for His children and not be moved and inspired! Who cannot rejoice in the ETERNAL salvation which Almighty God has provided for all those who have chosen to receive His FREE pardon and know Him (John 1:12, 3:16-17, Acts 16:29-31, Rom. 5:12-21, Eph. 2:8-9, Rev. 22:17)! Who could not rejoice in redemption’s ETERNAL wondrous plan (1 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 21, 22:1-5)! Who could not rejoice that our sins are forgiven and that we possess ETERNAL life (Ps. 103:12, John 3:16-17, 17:3)! Who could not rejoice in our position in Christ (Eph. 1:3, 2:1-14, Col. 3:1-4, 1 John 4:4)! Who cannot rejoice that we are living in the very days of our Savior’s soon return! Oh GLORY my beloved! Oh Glory! When we allow Almighty God to be Almighty God to us and see things from Heaven’s ETERNAL perspective it is wonderful, for He is EXPONENTIALLY wonderful! We are SET FREE from the ruler and slave master of this world, from the bondage of sin, and the fear of death’s dread sting (Rom. 8:15, Eph. 2:1-14, Heb. 2:14-15). Oh my beloved, it’s all “ETERNALLY” good in the Lord (Phil. 4:4)!

When we allow Almighty God to be Almighty God to us and see things from Heaven’s ETERNAL perspective it is wonderful, for He is EXPONENTIALLY wonderful!

In all sincerity, the IFB’s objective Biblical perspective is VERY positive and teeming with wondrous hope, Words of life and ETERNAL great expectations for all who would receive it (Rom. 15:4, Phil. 4:4)! For my beloved, we provide that for you - an objective ETERNAL insight - which you will NEVER hear or receive from the Rush Limbaughs, Sean Hannitys, Glen Becks, Jim Vicevichs and Michael Savages of the world. They talk of only what they know of which is from their subjective conservative “spiritual” unregenerate world perspective (Rom 8:1-9, Cor. 2:14, James 3:13-18, Jude 1:19). Thank God for them BUT… they can only offer you a subjective worldly perspective without any ETERNAL realities and truths (Rom. 8:1-9, 1 Cor. 2:14) and in the end they have deceived themselves and you my dear friend (2 Cor. 11:13-15, 2 Tim 3:13). They can only offer you temporal optimistic appraisals, wishful thinking and spider web hopes to get you through the evil day and darkened night but offer absolutely nothing about your ETERNAL destiny (Prov. 14:12, 16:25, Matt. 7: 13-27, John 3:36). They bring absolutely no REALITY of man’s accountability to their Creator, desperate need for Almighty God’s saving grace and RIGHTEOUSNESS and the overwhelming truths and realities that the Day of the Lord is at hand! (1 Cor. 2:2, Gal. 6:14, Col. 1:28, 2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 6-19). These dire ETERNAL REALITIES of salvation and the soon coming Day of Wrath, the second coming of the Lord Jesus and His establishment of the Kingdom of Almighty God are scoffed at and dismissed by them as extreme, simple, relativistic “religious philosophies” and the rantings of zealots which have no relevance to our present day or future. The Lord Jesus Christ stated it Himself to a great “conservative and unsaved religious” leader in Israel, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” – John 3:3.

“Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him, "Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?” (John 3:9-12, ref. also Rom 8:1-9, 1 Cor. 2:14)

The Lord Jesus Christ stated it Himself to a great “conservative and unsaved religious” leader in Israel, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

If one has NEVER received the pardon of Almighty God (John 3:36), then one is NOT born again and regenerated by Almighty God’s Holy Spirit -, it is just that simple (John 3:3-17, 1 cor. 6:9-11, Titus 3:5, 1 Peter 1:3). Without this regeneration an individual will remain dead in their trespasses and sins and spiritually ignorant (John 14:16-17,26, Rom. 8:1-9, 1 Cor. 2:14, 1 John 1:27). He will continually to be imprisoned in this subjective fallen world under the delusional sway of their tyrannical master Lucifer (2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2:2-3, 6:12). They cannot no matter how hard they try to fully comprehend the day we are living in and what is at the door because they REFUSE to believe it even though they might understand the basic truths of it (Rom. 8:1-9, 1 Cor. 2:14, 2 Tim 2:25).

As these days come to an end and America is sucked into the vortex of fiscal, social and moral collapse, there is ALWAYS hope in Almighty God… ALWAYS (Matt. 28:20, John 14:1-3, 1 John 3:-12, Titus 2:13)! As Christ removes His Church (via the Rapture) my dear friends expect the world only to get DARKER and DARKER and DARKER… to the point that the world and its inhabitants will tail spin out of control into unimaginable global nuclear war, natural disasters, demonic oppression and possession and the willing worship of the anti Christ and Lucifer himself (2 Thess. 2:3-12,2 Tim. 3:1-7, Rev. 6-16). These horrific and catastrophic days ARE what is heading our way, like it or not, believe it or not. Be NOT deceived my dear friends by the many different voices and spirits that have gone throughout our land (Jer. 14:14, 23:16, Matt.7:15, Col. 2:4-8, 1 John 4:1) Almighty God sent His dear Son to rescue ALL who would put their trust and faith in Him for ETERNAL salvation (John 3:16-17, Gal 1:4). Hear, ye Him!

As these days come to an end and America is sucked into the vortex of fiscal, social and moral collapse, there is ALWAYS hope in Almighty God… ALWAYS!!

The time for unbelief, scoffing and ignorance must be put aside for objective Biblical reality. Hold onto your unbelief and fear if you so choose to but only expect ruin and desolation for your ETERNAL future and in this temporal existence here in time (John 3:36, 1 John 2:15-17, Rev. 20:11-15). May you choose to abandon and cast away your ideals which exclude Almighty God, His Word and His ETERNAL promises for you and place your trust in the Savior of the world! You will be set FREE and you will NEVER be the same (John 8:32, 36)! We here at the IFB can truly testify to that truth and reality. If it were not so my dear friends, well… we would be out fishing, eating, drinking and being merry for all would be vanity (1 Cor. 15:11-22), but that is NOT the case for we are YOUR servants for Christ’s sake in these last days before He comes for us! How can we not be, for we owe Him and we know what He has truly done for us! My dear friend, have faith in Almighty God and join us as we serve and REJOICE in the ETERNAL WONDERFUL PERSON of ALMIGHTY GOD! Only the fool will say no to the wondrous love of the Savior. May you not be one of them. (Eph. 5:16-17)

THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND!

Remembering Our Founding Fathers on Father's Day

Today many in the United States are crying out to President Obama and Government (i.e., Washington D.C.) to do more and more to fix our social ills while a rising Tea Party movement is sweeping across the land to vainly counter this aggressive socialistic movement. The notion that Big Government has all our answers and the solutions we need in this very chaotic and unstable world is fairy tale.

Our Founding Fathers wisely understood that the less power government possessed the better off we as Americans would be. Our Foundering Fathers fully comprehend that with the abandonment of Judeo/ Christian foundations and principles that our government would be transformed into an ever controlling monster with a tyrant as its rider. If present today, Our Founders Fathers would be fighting tooth and nail against this secular socialistic aggression.

Our Foundering Fathers fully comprehend that with the abandonment of Judeo/ Christian foundations and principles that our government would be transformed into an ever controlling monster with a tyrant as its rider.

The present statist or U.S. constitutional apostate is rooted in the subjective liberal personal belief that Fallen Man through and by the out working of Big Government or "Socialism" can bring security and comfort to its inhabitants. This secular ideology has failed every time it has been implemented. In fact there is no government or political ideology that can ever usher in a world Utopia of perfection and bliss. Those who believe so are oblivious to the fallen nature of man and record of history (Rom 5:12-19).
.
Faith of Our Fathers

Our Founding Fathers knew this reality to be true. They fully comprehended that without the fear or reverence of Almighty God (Prov. 1:7) there could never come about the personal responsibility and accountability that would give fallen man the benefits of human freedom. These earthly freedoms were to point to the absolute freedoms and liberty set forth by Almighty God (John 8:32, 36, Heb 2:14,15). The rejection of these heavenly principles would only lead to the continual out working of godless tyrants and oppressors in this temporal fallen world.

They fully comprehended that without the fear or reverence of Almighty God (Prov. 1:7) there could never come about the personal responsibility and accountability that would give fallen man the benefits of human freedom. These earthly freedoms were to point to the absolute freedoms and liberty set forth by Almighty God.

The outworking of all nations - along with their godless ideologies of big controlling government - are only full of good intentions and oppressive desires. The masses that have fallen prey to these are living in drunken fictional delusion with no deliverance in sight. (Rom 3:23, 2 Peter 3:10, Rev 17: 1-2).

The majority of our Founding fathers understood the truth of the matter, that man - apart from Almighty God and His righteousness - can only bring upon himself the consequences of his own evil doings (unbridled passions). Conservative values are a must and are the best ideology for here in time but God's Messiah/Christ is absolutely essential for Almighty God's Holy (Perfect) ETERNAL Heaven. The Conservative and Liberal ideologies of this hour can never offer the absolute righteousness required of Almighty God and those ETERNAL heavenly necessities which are only found in Almighty God's Son, Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 1:30).

The majority of our Founding fathers understood the truth of the matter, that man - apart from Almighty God and His righteousness - can only bring upon himself the consequences of his own evil doings (unbridled passions).

The Bible states in Galatians 5:20-21, "Now the works of the flesh (our fallen humanity) are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

Also in Matthew 15:17-20, "And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man."

The Fallen nature of man can never bring about true peace. God's word states in Isaiah 57:20, "But the wicked (unsaved humanity) are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked." This social gospel of man is in direct opposition to the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Bible states in Roman 14:17, "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost."

and also in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

One must choose who they will put their trust in, Big Government or Almighty God. Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-30, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

and in Matthew 6:33, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." To obtain true righteousness and peace one must know the Prince of Peace, The Lord Jesus Christ. Only through Christ can one obtain this reality.

The Bible states in Galatians 5:22, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Do you know the Prince of Peace the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior?

The Bible states in Isaiah 45:21, 22, "there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."

also in John 1:12, "But as many as received him (Jesus Christ), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:"
.
As we celebrate Father's Day here in America, may we remember our American Founding Fathers vision and all that they have bestowed upon this nation. Their incredible Divine wisdom, selfless labors, enduring hardships and their reverence and great admiration towards Almighty God the King and Savior of the nations. They are indeed worthy of remembrance in America on Father's Day.
.
The Kingdom of God is at hand!
