Our Guest Hank Kunneman

TVBackground_Kunneman_SHOW842SID: You know, I wish you could hear the conversations I have with my guests during break time. It’s some of the best stuff we do is during that time. For instance, Hank said to me during the break, accuracy isn’t the only barometer to measure a prophet by because if you remember it was Balim prophesied accurately. But so what is it besides accuracy, you were telling me, God spoke to you?

HANK: Balim was a very accurate false prophet. Okay. The Lord said this me. He said, accuracy, yes, is important, but authority. And when Jesus spoke, they didn’t say, who is this that speaks with such accuracy. They said, who is this that speaks with such authority. And I believe that you’ll be able to feel on the prophecies that are given the authority that which comes from Heaven, prophets of the Lord versus prophets of the land. There is a difference.

SID: Okay. Obamacare, what did God tell you about it?

HANK: Well one of the prophecies that the Lord gave is that Obamacare, it will be repealed. Now when that’s going to happen, I’m not sure. But I will say this. Will it be repealed? Yes. That was the prophecy. Does that mean that it’s going to be overthrown? Does it mean that there’s going to be something else in its place? All I know is however it shakes out, it will be repealed.

SID: What about you were really grieved when the same-sex marriage was approved by the Supreme Court and God spoke to you about that.

HANK: Yeah. What I was saying, I spent two days with the Lord and I said, “God, what is wrong?” And I said, “Lord, what were you thinking?” He said, well, he said “Hank, obviously the White House knew the outcome” just like God did because they had the lights that shown with the colors of the rainbow. But I said, “Lord.”

SID: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I hope you caught that what he just said. They knew before the public knew. They had everything set up for those colors.

HANK: And so I said, “Lord,” I said, “People are calling me on the phone saying, ‘America is now finished.’” I said, “God, what do you say about this? What do you think?” And you know what God said to me? He surprised me, Sid. I said, “Lord, what did you do?” He said, “I turned and I looked at the mercy seat and I remembered my covenant that I have with my son Jesus Christ.” You see, what overcomes evil? The Bible says it’s good that overcomes evil. It’s the goodness of God that leads men to repent. God doesn’t like certain things. But it’s his goodness that will lead men to repentance. That’s why Jesus went about doing good, Acts 10:38, in healing all that were repressed of the devil. The Spirit of God says, “Why do you fear? What is about those in this earth that at this time that are fearing,” says the Lord. “Why do you fear North Korea? Why do you fear Russia? Why do you fear those who desire to come against the apple of my eye, Israel? For God says, do you think that I have lost control? For I tell you in this time that I have an arsenal, a host that is standing upon the horizon of this planet that are ready to shift things in favor of me and of the risen Christ Jesus. Do you not understand that in this moment of time that this earth is being awakened to my goodness and to my power, and to my Glory? For my Glory, yes, it shall come and it shall overcome the darkness and you will see the manifestations of my power in unusual ways and unusual places.” And God says, “It shall deal and grab a hold of the spirit of fear by its neck, for it shall lose control because of my goodness and my glory that are coming upon this earth.”

SID: So give me some advice. You’re watching CNN, you’re watching Fox, you’re watching news, you’re talking to most Christians. You’re listening to most prophets and it sounds like it’s the end of the world. It sounds like the worst times. It sounds like everyone is going to be beheaded by ISIS. How should we react? What should we do?

HANK: Well Jesus said it. He said, Luke 21, he said, “Men’s hearts are going to fail because they’re looking at the things that are coming here after the earth.” This is where prophets have to be careful and here in the body of Christ. We can’t spend all of our time listening to the news report and getting the reports of this realm. We’ve got to start going up higher and getting the perspective of God. That’s why Moses had to go above the dark cloud. But here’s the thing. Matthew 24, people quote that all the time. Even the disciples were saying, once we enter the age, you know, Jesus said there will be wars, rumors of wars, nations in perplexity, earthquakes in various places. And then he said, “But the end is not yet.” But he says something in Verse 14 that we completely pass over. He says, “This Gospel of the good news will promote my good. This Gospel of my kingdom, the good news of my kingdom shall be preached as a witness.” What witness? The witness of the demonstration of the power of God mixed with the good news of God. Then the end shall come. We need to promote his good. We need to declare his goodness. His proclamation and his goodness go together. For example—

SID: What do you mean by proclamation and goodness?

HANK: Well Jesus went into the temple, Luke 4:18. He said, he proclaimed, “The spirit of the Lord God is upon me.” He proclaimed it. He said it. We have to say it. He said, “He’s anointed me”, what, “to preach the Gospel,” there’s the good news again, “to the poor.” When Moses wanted to see the Glory, Exodus 33:18, the next verse, God said, “I’ll cause my goodness. I’ll proclaim and cause my goodness to pass before thee.” There is something that God does when we start declaring his goodness. For example, the Lord said, “Quick cursing America. Bless America.” I remember one time, Sid, I was praying in my brown, at that time I had a brown sofa. And the curtains began to blow and there was an aroma that filled, you know how the Bibles call in the Rose of Sharon, the smell like a rose smell, beautiful smell. The curtains began to blow. Jesus walked in. And I tell you, he put his hand on my shoulders and I buried my face in the couch. I was so afraid and I trembled like a young child. I was, and it felt like I was out of control. He put his hands on me. He said, “I called you to be a prophet to this nation. I called you to be a prophet to the nations.” But he said, “I want you to understand about America, Hank.” And he held out his hand and he said, “I still hold in my hand the sands and the prayers, and the tears of your forefathers, and the sands that are soaked with the tears and the prayers of your forefathers. I still hold them in my hand.” You see, God is looking at this nation and the earth from a whole different perspective. He’s wanting to bring his good that overcomes the evil. He’s wanting to bring his Glory. You know one of the ways to bring his Glory is through, again, proclamation, proclamation and goodness to the Lord.

SID: How about the reverse? If you proclaim doom and gloom, and fear.

HANK: Exactly.

SID: You bring that.

HANK: That’s why we’re seeing what we’re seeing on the earth today, people going the way of fear. And what it’s doing, and God even spoke one day and he said these words, and I want you to hear what he said. He said, “Why are they stealing the future from the children of this generation and the next?” It gives them no hope. It gives them no future when you tell them that, you know, there’s no good any more. Everything is just going to go bad. Well if that’s the case, then why doesn’t the Lord come for us? It’s because he has a plan. Listen, Isaiah, Chapter 9, Verse 6, let me quote this. It says, “Unto us a child is born,” talking about our Messiah. “Unto us a son is given. The government, the kingdom shall be upon his shoulders.” And it says, “And of this kingdom that’s on his shoulders, it shall increase” As long as God’s church is here in the earth, we don’t need to go anywhere. We don’t need to be afraid. It’s going to continually increase. And the Bible says in Verse 7 of Isaiah 9, “It will have no end.”

SID: When we come back, I’m going to ask Hank what he sees for 2016.

Sid Roth


Sid: We have found the way everyone everywhere is going to hear the good news is Romans 1:16 by going to the Jew first it opens up a supernatural door of evangelism to all people. And I call it the law of evangelism and wake up sleeping church; this is your greatest hour. I believe the harvest is upon us we’re just waiting for the laborers we just don’t even realize it.

Now on yesterday’s broadcast I told you that I was in Israel; I had one of the most amazing experiences I’ll tell you about all this week in the land. I was walking up early in the morning and I heard a near audible voice that said “Economic Judgment.” And my discernment was that it was the Untied States and it was because we were tampering with the apple of God’s eye. You see Israel is the plum line if you will that’s what Amos calls it. “Israel is God’s plum line.” And when you cross that plum line you’re in no man’s land, every single time the United States of America has come against Israel there have been warning judgments from God. It’s all been documented by my friend John McTernan and what’s going on right now there’s a security fence that Israel is building. Why? If they can save one Jewish life it would be worthwhile. And what’s the United States trying to do? Muscle Israel so that every dollar that they spend on a security fence to save Jewish lives will be deducted from the loans the United States is giving. Well God’s not very happy over that, God’s not very happy about forming a Palestinian state. Let me tell you something I am not political and God is not political it’s not a democracy it’s the King, and the King speaks and those that love Him obey.

I believe the first Zionist. A Zionist believes the Jewish people are entitled to the land of Israel unconditionally forever was God almighty. Not the political, I’m not talking about the political I’m talking about the biblical. Psalm 105 verse 8 to 11 says “God has given the physical land of Israel.” He says this 3 different ways in this Psalm 105 verse 8 to 11 “I’ve given the land of Israel to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob” not to Ishmael the father of the Arab people but to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob He says for everlasting. I’ve given this land to them forever, I’ve given this land to them for a 1000 generations.

I have to tell you this I’m reminded of a wonderful waitress in Israel. This waitress looked at me when I asked her the question “If you could talk to President Bush what would you tell him?” And she said what a lot of Israelis say I think that their bargaining for time when they say it “That’s a difficult question” but then she gave me an answer. She said “When 9/11 occurred, when September 11th occurred the great tragedy of the Twin Towers we Israelis wept because we understand what it is to have our loved ones destroyed.” And you know what happened, the Palestinians danced in the streets. And so my question to President Bush and to the Americans for that matter is “Do you weep for our dead ones?” Very penetrating question I tell you God says “That the plumb line I tell you that the last chance for any nation is your position on Israel.”

Joel chapter 3 I’ll give you an Old Covenant quote and then a New Covenant quote. Joel chapter 3 says that “Nations of the earth will be judged for one thing in the last days dividing up His land” the land that He gave for everlasting, forever and a l000 generations to the Jewish people. And Matthew 25 says that “Nations will be divided as easily as the shepherd knows the difference between a goat and a sheep.” A goat has a mind of its own a sheep follows a shepherd. Nations will be divided in the last days according to Matthew 25 verse 40 on one point and one point only “As you have done to the least of these my brethren.” Now that was before Jesus died and rose from the dead so that means there were no Christians at that time. So who were His brethren His physical brethren were the Jewish people? So He says “As you have done unto the least of these my brethren (My Jewish people) you’ve done unto Me and nations will be divided in the last days over that issue.

So you can see why I heard the word economic judgment I believe that we can buy time and we can buy time by praying for the President of the United. I believe that God means to bless the United States of America. Why? Because of Genesis 12:3 United States has been a blessing to the Jewish people and I believe this is the single reason why we are the most blessed country on the face of the earth. There’s other things that we’ve done that are good but there sure are a whole lot of things that we’ve done that are bad. So I believe the swing vote always will be and always has been the nation Israel. And we have been a blessing to the nation Israel and that’s why we’ve been blessed.

But… if we do not pray for the President of the United States I mean the fact that we have an outspoken man that loves God in the White House was he was put into the White House for the blessing of the United States of America. But the fact of the matter is he is surrounded by advisors some that are Christian I might add, but are into what is called Replacement Theology. In other words the church replaces Israel, I don’t know what they do with the scripture that says the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” In other words God doesn’t change His mind, however I’m glad He doesn’t change His mind with His promises to natural Israel He will not change His mind to the spiritual seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. That’s what gives us our security, but the truth of the matter is that we’re at a crossroads and those surrounding the President are either into this replacement theology or there into economic plans such as oil. And our State Department has a spirit about it, and it’s had it for years and it’s an old time spirit it’s found in the book of Esther. Esther is a type of the church.

Esther was the only one on behalf of the Jewish people, the only one that could go to the king a type of god. And Haman was the one that wanted to kill all of the Jewish people and that spirit is on our State Department now and on our advisers now. And the only thing that’ll get rid of it is prayer. So if you have ever prayed, listen I’ve been to 3rd world countries, I like the prosperity that we have in the United States of America. I don’t want to see it change and I believe that we have a President that could be a God pleaser rather than a man pleaser. And I believe the swing vote is not the President of the United States I believe the swing vote will be the prayers of believers.

So I tell you that a day will come when a dollar will not have any value in the United States of America. There will be economic judgment in the United States, the question is can we delay this? I believe that our prayers can, but if we don’t the only thing that is going to have value will be the kingdom of God. And that’s why actually when I was in Israel I got an email and the email said from our supplier of books “We’re passing your books out in the streets of Jerusalem and we’re down to 100; we did find another source in which there were some more books that we could get in their hands but they are low, can you reprint?” And I believe just as I said the shofar is used to announce judgment or danger, the shofar is used to announce royalty.

This is God’s time to have mercy on Israel. Just as in the natural they had almost historic amounts of rain a type of the Holy Spirit. I saw things on this trip I can’t wait to tell you about them that tell me that the rains are about ready to fall of the Spirit of the Living God. The shofar is like the prophet’s voices all of them wailing at once. All of these prophecies ready to come to the front. It says in Romans the 11th chapter the 11th verse. “I say then have they the Jewish stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not but through their fall provoke them to jealousy salvation has come to the Gentiles. Now if their fall is riches for the world and their failure riches for the Gentiles how much more their fullness.” In other words, Paul is saying a time is coming that will be such a blessing to the world when the fullness of the Jewish people come in.

I believe that I can hear the rain now, can’t you hear it? I can hear the rain of the Holy Spirit coming down on the land of Israel, I can hear the prophets for the past 1000’s of years all of their voices wailing. I can hear that shofar blast right now. (Shofar blast sounded) It’s coming to the land of Israel, revival is coming to the land of Israel and if it was a blessing the Jewish people rejected their Messiah, so the Gentiles could be grafted in how much more a greater blessing when they receive their Messiah, it’s going to cause life from the dead, resurrection power from the dead. I believe it’s going to cause the return of the Messiah. After all Messiah said “I shall not return until the Jewish people say “Baruch haBah b’shem Adonai”   Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.”

Our Guest Eric Morey

Eric Morey

Sid: My guest by way of telephone, I’m speaking to him at his office in Tiberias, Israel is Eric Morey. One of the things that I always want, and I always need, many times I can’t even put my hand on it is a Jewish Biblical calendar. Why do I want this? Because I want to know when the Biblical festivals are because there is such insight into understanding what God’s going to do in the future all wrapped into these Biblical festivals. So the last time I was in Israel I was visiting my friends Eric and Terri Morey who run several businesses in Israel. They showed me a calendar which they called “The Zechariah Prophecy Calendar.” I have Eric on the telephone; Eric why did you pick the Prophet Zechariah to revolve with pictures around this calendar?

Eric: Well Sid the prophecies of Zechariah are so timely for today, especially in towards the end of chapters 12 and 14. It’s like reading tomorrow’s newspaper. It’s so incredibly timely…

Sid: Speaking of about tomorrow’s newspaper, I must ask you a question because you’re living in the land. Yet prophets that I respect are prophesying now that there will be a relative calm in Israel as opposed to… almost the daily or weekly suicide bombers. You’re living there, what are you sensing, what are you experiencing?

Eric: Well I have been sensing for some time that the violence is going to reach a climatic period, then it was going to drop off and that there would be a period of relative calm; not that it would be confused with peace. “Peace, peace, peace, but there is no peace.” There can be a calm and I believe that it may not be too far away. I sensed actually back at Passover when there was that horrible homicide, I like to refer to this as homicide bombings, rather than suicide bombings. That horrible homicide bombing at a Passover Seder in a hotel in Netanya, 26 people I believe were killed and many wounded. It was an atrocity above most atrocities you could imagine. The Israeli army then reacted very strongly and went into several of these refugee camps especially Jenin and I believe that was probably the peak in the violence that I was expecting. I expected the period of calm to develop more quickly than it has. We don’t see in it our eyes yet, we are still experiencing suicide bombings, and the threats of suicide bombings, but I really do believe that a period of relative calm could even last for several years is just around the corner.

Sid: I believe that too, I also believe that what a time for Christians to show solidarity to Israel by going on a tour. They’ll probably never have it not crowded as it is, and the prices as low as they are.

Eric: Yes that’s true this is a great time to come. For the next few months if there is a period of calm, and it stabilizes then tourism will… there will be a rush actually to come here. So it would be better to come earlier rather than later.

Sid: I agree. Now going back to the Zechariah Prophecy Calendar I have it in front of me. Some of the things I love about it, and I literally love about this calendar Eric, is: Number 1, right at the start you list every one of the Biblical festivals and you explain from the scriptures what they mean. But the thing that really attracted me, I have to be candid with you, is you just happen to have my favorite scripture on the cover. It’s Zechariah 4:6 “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit sayeth the Lord.” Describe to me the artwork on the cover.

Eric: Well that prophecy by Zechariah was given at a very interesting time in the history of Israel. They had returned from Babylon, or a remnant had returned from Babylon, and they were trying to… they had started to rebuild the temple. Then there had been some controversy and the king, or the emperor of Persia, had ordered the construction to stop. It stopped for 14 years, meanwhile the Jewish people who had returned from Babylon are building houses for themselves and farms and so forth. Zechariah, and also Haggai a contemporary prophet, both began to prophecy that the time had come to build the house of the Lord. To finish, complete the building, only the foundation had been laid. So this… and there were many obstacles to this, in fact the king of Persia had not yet given permission to restart the building. It was one of the obstacles. So it looked like it was a great mountain of obstacles in the way of this building project which was God’s House. Zechariah said “No God will provide the way, but it won’t be by power, it won’t be by might, it will be by His Spirit,” sayeth the Lord of hosts. So the prophecy there at that point in chapter 4 it describes a scene, a very prophetic scene, a very mysterious scene. Many many interpretations of what this means but it has 2 olive trees. Between the 2 olive trees is a beautiful gold 7 branched menorah, candelabra. This candelabra is a kind of perpetual motion machine because connected to it are some pipes that go to a bowl of golden oil. There are 2 pipes coming from these 2 olive trees that feed olive automatically, no human intervention into the bowl and then the bowl feeds it into the lights. You know candelabras in those days didn’t work from candles actually…

Sid: You know most people when they read about the menorah, the candlesticks, in the Bible they don’t visualize what it really looked like. This is really exactly what it looked like.

Eric: Well we commissioned these paintings from a Russian artist, a Messianic artist who was trained in classic painting in Russia and she is just an extraordinary artist. She’s able to create in her mind these incredible pictures and I was taking direction from the scripture and giving her input and going back and forth with sketches, and paintings and so forth until this is what came out. It’s this incredible gold menorah with the oil coming out of the 2 olive trees, lighting the, it’s a perpetual light this light will never go out because as long as the trees are producing olives the olive is going into the bowl, the oil is going into the 7 branches of the menorah and the light will be continual. In the background, now we see a building project some stones on the ground and a man holding the plumb line. This man is Zerubbabel because Zerubbabel was the governor of Judea…

Sid: Now what is a plumb line used for?

Eric: The plumb line is an engineering tool and it is used to measure the vertical dimension a building to make sure it is straight. So it’s an engineering tool, it’s an architectures tool. So he is back there getting ready to start the building again. He’s holding a plumb line. A plumb line is mentioned in the prophecies of Zechariah as well. It is a very very interesting side line to this scene because they thought that they could never build this temple because the king of Persia had forbidden it and he never changed the rule. They started building anyway and Zechariah and Haggai had concurred so much that they went ahead and started building again. The Samaritans, the old Samaritans our friends, came down and started to interfere in the building project that had just had they done in the days of Nehemiah, similar story it was a latter period of time than Nehemiah. So as they are interfering they write a letter to the king of Persia, the new emperor it was not the same emperor who had stopped the construction, and it wasn’t the sand who had commissioned it in the first place, it was the 3rd emperor in the line of Persian emperors. They sent a letter to him and said “These Jews are starting to build their temple again and they’re probably going to rebel against you and it’s going to be nothing but trouble. So you better stop it now.” But then they mention in their letter the fact that the original king of Persia, Cyrus the Great had actually ordered the temple to be rebuilt. He had commissioned the temple to be rebuilt. In a sense sends Ezra and Nehemiah back to begin the building project. So they mention this is their letter, the king of Persia had his archivist go back into the archives and pull out this old scroll, I think it was maybe 50 years later, and sure enough Cyrus the Great himself had commissioned the building of this temple. This emperor sent back a letter and said “Look, not only are they going to build their temple but you Samaritan governor are going to supply all the building materials.” That’s how the prophecy was fulfilled, “Not by might, nor by power.” The mountain Zechariah was referring to was overcome so much so, not did they get to build it, not only did the king allow them to build it; the king ordered his servants to supply the building materials.

Sid: You know as I studied that specific prophecy that we’re discussing. Zechariah 4:6 “Not by might, nor by power, but My Spirit sayeth the Lord.” The prophecies in Zechariah about the candlesticks and the 2 olive trees, I think it is very obvious it stands for the 2 witnesses of the last days. But I see it also as a type of the of the One New Man, the Jew and Gentile becoming one and that’s what got me so excited about this cover you have here for your prophecy calendar. This must be an unusual artist that you commissioned Eric?

Eric: Very very talented, and very very well trained.

Sid: What was her training?

Eric: She was trained in Russia in classical painting. They don’t train artist like that in the west anymore that’s hundreds of years ago, but in Russia they still listen to the classical music and they appreciate the classic arts, and they have trained painters in these antique classic painting methods that create these incredible pictures. It’s like a Renaissance painting, it’s like a Michael Angelo, or Leonardo da Vinci paining it’s that style it’s classic.

Sid: Actually someone could actually just probably tear this calendar apart, I hope you don’t do it and frame every one of them they’re suitable for framing.

Our Guest Dr. Mark Gabriel

Dr Mark Gabriel (1303) 2002

Sid: My guest is red hot for the Messiah. He formerly, Mark Gabriel, was a professor of Islamic History at the most prestigious Islamic university in the world. He holds a doctorate degree in Islamic Studies. He’s explaining why there are over 1 billion people on this planet that are followers of Islam. We were talking on yesterday’s broadcast about the strategy as outlined by the life of Mohammed in the Quran, and these are the 3 stages of Jihad. The Jihad is a holy war and most people here in the west do not understand that the only form of assurance that a Muslim will go to heaven is to die in a Jihad, or die as a martyr. Is that true Mark?

Mark: Yes absolutely it’s true.

Sid: That kind of explains why so many people are willing to be suicide bombers because that’s the only way they know for sure that they’re going to go to heaven. Now you explained on yesterday’s broadcast the 3 stages of Jihad in a nation, and you can see it happening in England they’re a little further progressed than in the United States. The first is called the Weak Stage, where they’re small minority and they submit to the laws of the United States and they work to increase their numbers. Then comes the second stage which is the Preparation Stage and explain that to me.

Mark: The second stage, Preparation Stage which means the Muslim community they must prepare themselves for taking over the assistance in the county wars which they living there. For example, like in England or in America they must prepare themselves money, prepare themselves whippings, trainings, establishing secret military, or a secret group so that they can start practicing Jihad, you see take over the country. This second stage was presented by the life of Mohammed when he immigrate from Mecca to Medina and he spend only 1 year in Medina preparing himself and after he had the success to reconcile the most 2 Arab tribes that were fighting each other for almost more than 40 years called the Aust tribe and the Kedarish tribe and when they reconciled by Mohammed himself they was converted to Islam. This is how his number was increased so extremely in the first year in Medina. He established his power and he start again the Jewish community and the other Arabic tribes practicing what you call Jihad. So this is the second stage, the Stage of Preparation, which means the first year which Mohammed had been in Mecca.

Sid: Okay then looking at Mohammed’s life what do Muslims call the third stage?

Mark: The third is called the Stage of Action.

Sid: Explain that.

Mark: The third of action which means the third of practicing Jihad as follows, or the fighting itself by starting a war fighting the non-Muslims. Mohammed started that the first time in Medina when he decide to hijack Arabic Meccan caravan was coming to Mecca. So nobody attacks him, no one came and tried to destroy him in Medina, but when he finished preparing his military and his power, and he start the third stage which means action. He takes his military from Medina to a valley called Badr between Mecca and Medina, and he hijack a caravan for the Meccan idol worshipper people.

Sid: Now why is it that radical Islam is so upset with the United States?

Mark: Yes because the United States presenting the most powerful country in the world today. United States dominating the entire world by the American system, by the American culture, by the American media, by the American politics, and America presented the political system called Democracy. Democracy America is working hardly to present this system to every or each country that is specific to the third world countries, and to establish freedom and democracy. Democracy according to the Islamic law and the Islamic theology it’s something like evil, it’s against Islam totally. Muslim’s like Bin Laden, like the Muslim’s… orthodox Muslims, any Muslim who understand Islam very well he does not believe in democracy or in westernize the world by the western system, or political system. The Islamic law requires Muslims to go and fight till the end for one goal, to let the Islamic system rule the entire world.

Sid: Let me ask this question, there are many Muslims in the United States of America that it is true they are peace loving. There are many Muslims in the United States of America that love America they don’t want to see America destroyed. So who are we talking about? I mean if they’re so peace loving why… according to your book if anyone follows the Quran they can’t be peace loving, so how come there’s this difference?

Mark: You’re talking now Sid, you’re talking about nationalism. Islam does not believe in nationalism, Islam does believe the entire airs does belong to Allah and belongs to Islam. What you talk about these Muslims here in America they loving America, they care for America. America is not all… Muslims are not all the same here in the United States there is a different type of Muslim here. I can assure you that the secular Muslims who run away from the dictatorship and the persecution of the Middle East and the Islamic countries and came to the United States to look for a better future, better job, better education these people I do agree with you they will not agree, or they will not… or they are loving America and they do not want anyone to hurt America. But there are Muslims committed, Muslims living here in America the people who are running the Muslim schools, the people who are running the Muslim centers, and running the Islamic mission activity, these people actually they are… does not believe in the same way of the other secular Muslims.

Sid: But yet on television I see many of these Imams come on and they talk about just the verses in the Quran that are peace loving, are they lying to us?

Mark: Absolutely we come again to the same question you asked me before, “Does Islam ask Muslims to lie or allow Muslims to lie?” Yes for the benefit of Islam. This Imam that was standing and speaks in that way they was afraid that the Islamic image would be destroyed in America if they were to present the true teaching of Islam.

Sid: You know time is slipping away… But I’ll tell you the most important question on my heart Mark. I go to New York City a lot and jump in a taxi and in most instances they’re Muslim taxi drivers. I get into a conversation with them about Jesus and about the Quran, and about the Bible. I say “Listen, I’m Jewish I’m also a believer in Jesus and you’re Muslim we all believe in the Torah, the first 5 books of Moses.” Then I start reasoning with them and they say “Oh no your Bible us mistranslated.” Why do they believe that because our Bible predates their Quran, their bible? I mean so how could they say that? Then when I say that to them then they say “Yes but someone’s changed it.” But they don’t know about the Dead Sea Scrolls that proves that no one’s changed it, but you can’t win through logic. So what can I say to that Muslim cab driver that I want him to know Jesus? God loves him as much as he loves every Jew on the face of this earth. God loves Muslims. I know this, you know this, God knows this, so how can we share?

Mark: Amen. Sid I was one like this people before I meet with Jesus. They’re actually are deceived by the Quranic verses who accused the Jews and the Christians that they were changed and corrupted their books. But the way actually to speak with this people to show them the truth just to win them by logic, but sometimes we can’t use the logic. We can say that the only source for the student of Abraham and the student of the prophets of God is the Bible it’s specific to the Old Testament. Yes the Quran does speak and mention about Abraham and about the prophets, but from where does the Quran bring that information? How does Mohammed catch all this information, from where does he get that? So there was our only source in the world today to know about the life of Abraham, hence the Bible there is no other book.

Sid: I’ll tell you our time is up.
