    UNIUS REI VS NIMROD BAAL IMF 666 -- 4. He will stand and shepherd his flock, in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. And they will live securely, for then his greatness, will reach to the ends of the earth. 5. And he will be our peace, when the Assyrians invade our land and march through our fortresses. We will raise against them seven shepherds, even eight commanders, 6. who will rule[c] the land of Assyria with the sword, the land of Nimrod with drawn sword.[d] He will deliver us from the Assyrians, when they invade our land, and march across our borders.

    God the Creator of the heavens and the earth and man said in the Holy Quran. (83) Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah (God) and That Which is revealed unto us and revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael That Which Was and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and That Which Was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and Their prophets from the Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered. (84)Surah Al-E-Imran - ANSWER - IF YOU were doing the works of God and the prophets? you would never have killed innocent people (Christians), but Satan is your father, because you do the same works that murderer of Muhammad had done, in fact, you do not follow the teachings of Jesus, it is impossible for a Muslim to enter, in heaven if despise the Bible, or the Gospel, but many Muslims Satanists, they burn the Bible and the Gospel!

Both And they used to eat (earthly) food. See how We make the revelations clear for them, and see how they are turned away! (75) Surah Al-Maeda: in = jesus bible say = This is eternal life: that they may know You the only true God and Jesus Christ Whom you have sent, but, Christians worship messenger. - ANSWER - you will not be condemned for being a Muslim, because Muslims good people? go to Heaven, you will be condemned, because, not having, received a divine revelation, you personally, as many Muslims, who have become Christians, you judge the infinite things of God, to do harm to innocent people on matters of conscience

    if you understand Christianity? then, also, you will be killed by the Muslims, because, in their eyes, you will always be, a blasphemer and idolater! but this is the truth, God has given free will, while satanaAllah, has captured:: taken it! se tu capisci il cristianesimo? poi, anche, tu sarai ucciso dai musulmani, perché, ai loro occhi, tu sarai sempre, un blasfemo ed idolatra! ma, questa è la verità, Dio ha dato il libero arbitrio, mentre, satanaAllah lo ha tolto!
