Peace on Earth?

In 2012, I did a series of conferences around the country with my dear friend and sister in Christ Caryl Matriciana who has since gone to be with The Lord. The result was Volume 1 of the Sound the Alarm trilogy of DVDs entitled Another Gospel, Spirit, Jesus, Prophet.

The conferences and the resulting DVD set were widely appreciated – all glory to God – but it was the “Another Prophet” part that really excited me most. I had been researching several related end time prophecies for a good number of years that didn’t make any sense to me if one listened to the prevailing thoughts of the day from other prophecy teachers.

Our research revealed that the Jordanian Prince Ghazi had put forward a proposal at the UN, that the first week in February be celebrated as The World Interfaith Harmony Week. It was first proposed at the UN General Assembly on September 23, 2010 officially by H.M. King Abdullah II of Jordan. Just under a month later, on October 20, 2010, it was unanimously adopted by the UN and henceforth the first week of February is to be observed as a World Interfaith Harmony Week.

As we looked at the multifaith movement which was drawing us ever closer to the beast of Revelation 13:11-18, more commonly known as The False Prophet*, we took a look at what is called The Common Word – a multifaith initiative signed by over 19,000 people now, but some of the first signatories included The Pope, The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rick Warren and Tony Blair amongst other well known ‘Christians’. We also included a speech by Senator John Kerry and a meeting between Prince Ghazi and Prince Charles.

As we pointed out in The Daniel CONNECTION movie (which was based on The Daniel Project documentary about Bible prophecy), the prince borrows scripture from The Bible to “love God and to love your neighbour as yourself “– but for those who don’t believe in God, there is the option to “love ‘Good’”… bringing together people of all faiths and none. However, it is important to note that in all his dealings with other religions, Prince Ghazi makes it very clear that the top god is Allah.

The DVD lays it out in more detail – with a shocking revelation at the end about rebuilding The Temple – not least the fact that Prince Ghazi is a direct descendant of the Islamic prophet Mohammed.

Here is a short ‘selfie’ he did last year, explaining what the week is all about.

However, as we move towards the end of the 2019 World Interfaith Harmony Week, I wanted to share a video from the 2015 event, which is a very clear example of what it’s all about. How lovely it all sounds – and how bigoted any Christian will look who disagrees with it. You will note the scenes shot at The Dome of The Rock at The Temple Mount.
The video below shows British singer Sami Yusuf who was born in Iran, as he sings a song – the anthem of the event – which is written and composed by Prince Ghazi. The Lyrics say:

Diliges proximum tuum tamquam te ipsum [Translation: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself’. (Mark 12:31)] Love to give! To give is love, And love the gift, The gift of love. No belief! Without the love, Believe in love! The belief of love. None of you truly believes until you love for your neighbour what you love for yourself. [A saying of the Prophet Muhammad ] Love to give! The gift of love, Give the other, All your love. What a relief! To give my love, I am now you, And you are my love!

According to their own literature:

The World Interfaith Harmony Week is based on the pioneering work of The Common Word initiative. This initiative, which started in 2007, called for Muslim and Christian leaders to engage in a dialogue based on two common fundamental religious Commandments; Love of God, and Love of the Neighbour, without nevertheless compromising any of their own religious tenets. The Two commandments are at the heart of the three Monotheistic religions and therefore provide the most solid theological ground possible.

The World Interfaith Harmony Week extends the Two Commandments by adding ‘Love of the Good, and Love of the Neighbour’. This formula includes all people of goodwill. It includes those of other faiths, and those with no faith.

The World Interfaith Harmony Week provides a platform—one week in a year—when all interfaith groups and other groups of goodwill can show the world what a powerful movement they are. The thousands of events organized by these groups often go unnoticed not only by the general public, but also by other groups themselves. This week will allow for these groups to become aware of each other and strengthen the movement by building ties and avoiding duplicating each others’ (sic) efforts.

It is hoped that this initiative will provide a focal point from which all people of goodwill can recognize that the common values they hold far outweigh the differences they have, and thus provide a strong dosage of peace and harmony to their communities.

The Common Word Resolution – an Islamic explanation:

It will be noted that the diplomatically unprecedented central phrase of the resolution—‘Love of God and Love of the Neighbour, or based on Love of the Good and Love of the Neighbour, each according to their own religious traditions or convictions’— excludes no one, of any religion or of no faith at all: every person of good will, with or without faith can and should commit to ‘Love of God and Love of the Neighbour’ or ‘Love of the Good and Love of the Neighbour’. Loving the Good and the neighbour is, after all, the essence of good will as such. And referring to ‘the Good’ obviously does not necessarily imply belief in God or in a particular religion, even though for monotheistic believers ‘the Good’ is God precisely: Jesus Christ (pbuh) said: No one is Good but God Alone [Mark, 10:18; Luke, 18:19, and Matthew, 19:17], and ‘the Good’ (‘Al-Barr’) is one of God’s Names in the Holy Qur’an [Al-Tur, 52:28]. Thus speaking of ‘the Good’ is an ingenious theologically-correct but inclusive formula—in so far as it goes—that unites all humanity and excludes no one.

*The Second Beast of Revelation 13 (v.11-18)

 Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon.  It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people, and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. Also, it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.  This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.
