Chrislam and apostasy will arise on a national level this Friday, November 14th, in the nation’s capital. The Washington National Cathedral, known for presidential funerals and other major spiritual services, will host a Muslim prayer service for the first time. The cathedral is part of the Episcopal Church and has long held high-profile interfaith events, but this is the first time Muslim leaders have held their midday services in such a visible Christian house of worship in the nation.
About 100 top Muslim leaders will be at the service, which will be spoken and chanted without music, and Muslim leaders will bring prayer carpets. Muslim advocacy organizations sponsoring the event are: (ADAMS) the All Dulles Area Muslim Society, (CAIR) the Council on American Islamic Relations, (ISNA) the Islamic Society of North America, (MPAC) Muslim Public Affairs Council, and the Masjid Muhammad mosque in NW Washington. All operate under the umbrella of the Muslim Brotherhood.
For Christians, this is a sad day in America. Congress designated the Washington National Cathedral as the “National House of Prayer.” It is the sixth-largest cathedral in the world, the second-largest in the United States, and the highest as well as the fourth-tallest structure in Washington, D.C.
With this Friday’s Muslim midday prayer service in the “National House of Prayer,” America has now digressed in the way of Europe to appease a religion that refuses to integrate, but would rather subjugate their adopted nation’s traditional values.
The Gatestone Institute reports that Muslims in Europe are increasingly converting empty Christian churches into mosques. The proliferation of mosques housed in former churches reflects the rise of Islam as the fastest growing religion in post-Christian Europe. There are now more practicing Muslims than practicing Christians in many parts of Europe, not only in large urban centers, but also in smaller towns and cities across the continent.
As Islam replaces Christianity as the dominant religion in Europe, more and more churches are set to become mosques, which increasingly serve not only as religious institutions, but also function as the foundational political building blocks for the establishment of separate, parallel Muslim communities in Europe that are based on Islamic Sharia law.

Where is America headed? We continue to need God’s “divine intervention.” It is a time of struggle and trial and distress in our culture. Despite the election victory the nation just experienced; we need to pray like we’ve never prayed before. Prayerful intervention is called intercession. America needs a great revival and spiritual awakening.
Grumbling does not bring God’s kingdom rule to earth to intervene in the affairs of this world; only genuine persistent prayer brings divine intervention. Without the intervention of God’s kingdom rule through prayer, conditions in the Earth succumb to inevitable consequences.
It is midnight for the world. It is a darkened time of wars and rumors of war. Since the Syrian civil war began three years ago, a human holocaust has been underway through the ritualistic slaughter of Christians on a scale the world has ever seen in modern times. Syrian officials finally shut down human slaughter houses that were uncovered, where hundreds of Christians have been sacrificially slaughtered in the name of Allah. The Takfiri Jihadist group ISIS has been sweeping across Iraq, killing Muslims and crucifying Assyrian Christians who do not adhere to their Takfiri theology. An Islamic Caliphate must expunge other religious beliefs that would contaminate a pure Sharia society.
History repeats itself. This is precisely the same type of slaughter the Ottoman Turks performed during their infamous genocide of Christians at the beginning of World War I. Close to 3.5 million Christians of Assyrian, Armenian, or Greek Orthodox denominations were murdered by the Young Turks regime. To this day, the Turkish government ostensibly denies having committed this genocide. Yet, the full egregious truth goes untold. The genocide spanned from 1914 to 1923, and then from 1933 up to the present. This extermination of Christians was a precursor to the Jewish Holocaust in Europe during World War II. When the truth leaked out of Jews being slaughtered, no one wanted to listen, and after the war, people denied they knew what was going on.
God’s people need to go to the throne and seek divine intervention on behalf of the nations and mankind. Pray that America remain the “light of the world” spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Church became an instrument of prayer from the very beginning, and the best model for prayer is Jesus, our Lord and Savior. It is not an hour to be labeled “lukewarm.” In Luke, chapter 11, we read of Jesus teaching the disciples about prayer:
In verse 9, Jesus taught, “I say to you, ask and it shall be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you.” Verse 13, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”
The best and most effective gift the heavenly Father can bless His children with is the Holy Spirit. Our first need is spiritual, and a closer relationship with God through the Holy Spirit assures that He will provide both spiritual and material needs. The Lord desires to pour out the Holy Spirit on those desirous of receiving. So, just ask, and you will receive.
