[NB. republished from December 2015 for the record as a lead-in to current items.]
You may recall that September was a very busy month prophecy-wise (see Archive). One special day brought two distinct surprises.
In fact, there wasn’t opportunity to finish blogging about that month but, in view of an event on that significant date – as well as what’s since happened relating to September Update 1: Judaism – I now need to start covering the changes within Islam:
14th ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11 ATTACK
On the anniversary of this century’s ‘day of infamy’ for New York I noted another event seemed to connect into the collapse of the Twin Towers – as well as possibly being of God, or was it simply coincidence? Lightning from a severe thunderstorm in Mecca struck a tall crane, which collapsed into the Grand Mosque thereby killing and injuring hundreds.
The construction engineer is quoted as saying, “It was an act of God”. A ‘very saddened’ British imam is reputed to have said, “It’s a blessing in disguise for those killed”. Four days later Saudi Arabia’s King Salman suspended contracts for the construction company, which is owned by the Bin Ladin family!
Nevertheless, it ‘struck’ me that it’s a mirror ‘action replay’ on the 14th anniversary of the attack upon America, inspired as it was by the teachings and practices of the Meccan founder of Islam. That is, the very heart of the homeland and faith of those modern religious plotters and perpetrators was visited by an almost similar ‘toppling of a tower’. Also, my first impression was of The Almighty throwing down the gauntlet to confront satan.
It’s far, far too uncanny not to be of poignant significance!
Also and especially, I couldn’t but reflect upon the revelation I received 23 years ago upon the ‘fall of Islam’ (as in last December’s Fulfilled Prophecies 2). My understanding is that many Muslims would become disillusioned with their beliefs and seek a better concept and relationship with the One True God, as happened when those in communist USSR wanted a better and prosperous life. Thus, in 1989 they dismantled the iconic barrier between East and West – the Berlin Wall.
WIND OF CHANGE BLOWS THROUGH ISLAM
Readers of my post on Rosh Hashanah may have noticed Johnny Enlow’s reference in the prophetic word he delivered,
“Since 9/11 of 2001 it has seemed that radical Islam has become activated and empowered as never before. The Kingdom reality is that more Muslims have encountered and embraced Jesus since 2001 than in the entire history of Islam which is well over 1000 years.”
July/August’s edition of IDEA (Evangelical Alliance’s magazine) had featured this news as ‘The largest spiritual migration in history’, including an article by researcher David Garrison. In A Wind in the House of Islam he refers to 9/11 as ‘a hinge’! (Click image to ‘look inside’ this excellent, informative book.)
Dr. Garrison states this new global study reveals that the first Muslim movement to Christ did not occur until the 19th century, over 1000 years after Muhammad’s message first echoed from the minarets of Medina. This first movement was followed by a further ten Muslim movements to Christ in the late 20th century. But something now is happening. In the first 12 years of the 21st century, we have already seen more than 60 new Muslim movements to Christ! (For more visit WindintheHouse.org) He defines a ‘movement’ as at least 1,000 baptised believers or 100 new church starts.`
Meanwhile in London
In view of September’s schedule and prophecy-related events I was surprised to read about the Israeli Prime minister’s private visit to London to confer with Prime Minister David Cameron.

An interesting coincidence!
And that this has not been made available online!
2016 Word of the Lord (at 5.6 D & E), Dr Sharon Stone.
I later learned that one of my earliest teachers on the biblical significance of Israel also heard from the Lord that, “Islam will fall” (Jerusalem 2003 Wars/Peace). Also, Dr Hormoz Shariat told Joel Rosenberg millions of Muslims are turning from their faith and looking to Jesus Christ (as here).
