We have begun to look at the life of Abraham and the important aspects related to our next dispensation, the Dispensation of promise.
Ur of the Chaldees was a very well popular place in the ancient world because it was known as the center of worshipper of the moon God, who was called by many Allah.
Freedom without authority is anarchy and authority without freedom is tyranny.
If people are free but don't respect authority is leads to anarchy which is lawlessness and rebellion, and so there may be freedom but it is out of control.
If you have authority but do not have freedom then you have tyranny which is oppression, cruelty and dictatorship.
PRO 11:1 A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, But a just weight is His delight.
Psa 119:45, "And I will seek freedom, for I seek Your doctrines, O God."
Joh 8:32, "and you shall know the doctrine, and the doctrine [truth] shall make you free."
Just as freedom is the heritage of physical birth, so spiritual freedom is the heritage of the new birth or regeneration.
Notice how important it is to see the relationship between true natural and spiritual freedom with the word of God.
Beat your wife;
Kill Jews to go to heaven;
Kill Christians to go to heaven; etc.
There is no difference between the worship of the moon god in Abraham's day the worship of Allah in our day, they are one and the same.
The teachings of the moon-god or Allah or the Muslim religion today is based upon destroying the promises that God made to the Jews beginning with His promises to Abraham.
Gen 3:15, when He said And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed [Satan's seed is represented by the Adamic nature, Joh 8:44] and (I will put enmity between) her seed; a reference to the Lord at the point of his incarnation or the virgin birth
He (the seed of the woman) shall bruise you on the head literally crush the head of Satan (i.e., operation footstool) And you [Satan] shall bruise him on the heel, a reference to the cross.
Ever since this promise was given to mankind, Satan tried to destroy TLJC and now is trying to destroy one of His royal families.
His first royal title is "Son of God." The members of His royal family are God the Father and God the Holy Spirit with whom He has eternal and infinite coexistence, Satan tried to destroy that Royal title and that Royal family in Eze 28:15, Isa 14:12-14.
The virgin birth introduced the humanity of Christ into the world, at which point Jesus Christ became Jewish royalty.
His second royal title is "Son of David," and His royal family is the dynasty or the house of David.
Davidic Covenant = the seed of the woman, the humanity of Christ, will descend from the tribe of Judah through the family of David, 2Sa 7:8‑17; Psa 89:20‑37, and that He would rule upon the throne of Jerusalem.
By virtue of His strategic victory on the cross, our Lord received His third royal title: "King of kings, Lord of lords, the Bright Morning Star." Rev 19:12-16.
God the Father interrupted the dispensation of Israel and inserted the Church-age for the calling out (formation, election) of a royal family to accompany our Lord's third royal title.
1CO 11:19 says, "For there must also be factions among you, in order that those who are approved may have become evident among you."
LUK 17:1 And He said to His disciples, "It is inevitable that stumbling blocks should come, but woe to him through whom they come!
ACT 20:30 and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them."
In GAL 5:19-20, Paul writes, Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, and things like these,
of which I forewarn you just as I have forewarned you that those who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
TIT 3:10-11, Reject a factious [divisive] man after a first and second warning, knowing that such a man is perverted and is sinning, being self‑condemned.
The Church has been around for almost 2,000 years and already has enough winner believers in this dispensation throughout the ages to add another nail to the coffin of Satan and the fallen angels in the historical phase of the angelic conflict.
Satan has only one royal title and one royal family to try and destroy, our Lord's second royal title, "Son of David," and His royal family, the dynasty of David, true Israel.
The first satanic attack on Christ becoming true humanity was when Cain murdered Abel in Gen 4, which was a satanic attack on Adam's seed.
The promise was the fact that God the Father would provide the Savior from Adam's seed, who would come through the woman as the child-bearer.
In an attempt to destroy all true humanity, fallen angels invaded earth and copulated with females, producing half-angel half-human beings, documented in Gen 6:1-6.
Because of Noah and his family, that satanic attack was also frustrated because on the ark was Noah's son Shem, and in Luk 3:36, our Lord would descend from the line of Shem.
It has to do with Israel and the Jews because since the Jews are a part of the center of the angelic conflict, there is great Satanic motivation and opposition against the Jews, not only in the Middle East, but scattered throughout the world.
1Pe 5:8 Your adversary, the devil, who prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Surah 5:51. O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.
In Surah 2:111. Any who say: "None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian." Those are their (vain) desires.
Surah 2:113. The Jews say: "The Christians have naught (to stand) upon; and the Christians say: "The Jews have naught (To stand) upon." Yet they (Profess to) study the (same) Book.

Surah 2:140. Do ye say that Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes were Jews or Christians? Say: Do ye know better than Allah. Ah! who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah. but Allah is not unmindful of what ye do!

Surah 47:4. Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom:
Both the Koran and the Hadith (commentary to the Qur'an) promote lying, taking false oaths or breaking treaties and promises all in the name of Allah.
Middle East scholars have demonstrated beyond all doubt that every ritual and belief in Islam can be traced back to pre-Islamic Arabian culture.
Violence is commanded in the Quran for it says in the Surah 9:5: "Fight and slay the pagans (infidels) wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war.".
"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah or his apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or the cutting off of hands and feet from the opposite sides, or exile from the land." Surah 5:33.
In the Al Tawbah which is a Muslim commentary on the Koran it says in the section called "The Repentance:" "Prophet, make war on unbelievers and hypocrites, and deal rigorously with them." Surah 9:73.
"Let not the unbelievers think they will ever get away... strike terror into the enemy of God and your enemy... rouse the faithful to arms! If they (the non-Muslims) incline to peace (accept Islam) make peace with them." Surah8:59-60.
"If they reject your judgment, know that it is Allah's wish to scourge them for their sins. Surah5:49.
Muhammad was not sinless: See Surah 40:55. He never performed a single miracle: Surah17:91-95. He did not die for anyone. No personal relationship with him is possible: he is dead.
Islam is also Anti-Jewish.
In the Al Maidah (The Table) it says: "Believers (Muslims), take neither Jews nor Christians to be your friends: they are friends with one another.
Whoever of you seeks their friendship Shall become one of their number, and God does not guide (those Jewish and Christian (called "wrong-doers," 5:51-5:74).
Islam is said to be Anti-Black.
American blacks have been widely deceived. Only people with white faces will be saved; people with black faces will be damned: Surah 3:106,107.
Surah 3:106. On the Day when some faces will be (lit up with) white, and some faces will be (in the gloom of) black: To those whose faces will be black, (will be said): "Did ye reject Faith after accepting it? Taste then the penalty for rejecting Faith."
- But those whose faces will be (lit with) white,- they will be in (the light of) Allah's mercy: therein to dwell (for ever).
- These are the Signs of Allah. We rehearse them to thee in Truth: And Allah means no injustice to any of His creatures.
Arab Muslims were enslaving black Africans long before Westerners.
Our nation's founders wrote “With Freedom comes Vulnerability”
As parents we know that well, we want to give our children some levels of freedom, but with each increase of freedom given, vulnerability is increased.
