The Abrahamic Family House, the first of its kind, is a multi-faith headquarters which is now open to the public in the Middle East and the timing strangely connects to the United Nation’s anti-blasphemy laws and the spread of Covid-19.
On Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a unique center representing the top three Abrahamic faiths of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism has opened. This is the only place in the world where a synagogue, church, and mosque reside together as a multi-faith center of worship.
This is the first of its kind, but another one-world religion center is being constructed in Berlin.
The stated purpose of the headquarters is to bring understanding and tolerance among the faiths, but there are a couple of notable challenges. First, Abu Dhabi is the capital of the UAE where it is illegal for Christians to proselytize and conversion from Islam is prohibited. This does not represent tolerance and perhaps it is not really supposed to.
Like the Abrahamic Family House that promises tolerance and understanding, the UAE constitution also guarantees freedom of religion “in accordance with established customs,” but the devil is in the details. Though certain practices (like punishing conversion from Islam) are directly prohibited, penal code for the UAE defers to Sharia Law, which strictly prohibits apostasy.
Though usually not enforced, teaching that Jesus is the only God is considered to be an act of insulting Allah or the Prophet Muhammad and offenders can be subject to imprisonment for five or more years, fined from 250,000 dirhams ($68,100) to two million dirhams ($545,000), and Christians may be deported.
To add to the confusion of bringing understanding and tolerance, Sunni Muslim leader, Sheikh Ahmen al-Tayeb, who helped establish the headquarters and is widely touted as a ‘moderate’ Muslim, strongly believes that Muslims who convert from Islam to any other religion (including Christianity) should be killed.
The launch of the one world religion headquarters in the UAE seems to seamlessly coordinate with the anti-blasphemy resolutions passed in the United Nations.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Christians did not notice the passing of the UN’s anti-blasphemy law. Loosely translated, the law as embraced by the UAE, prohibits any teachings against Islam, including Biblical teachings which could be considered offensive.
Most westerners understand the term “One world religion” to refer to the merging of all religions, including Christianity, into a single global religion. This understanding is used on purpose to manipulate by playing on semantics.
Nations like China, where persecution against Christians is rampant and has a long bloody history under Communism, is done in the name of ‘unity’ and ‘social harmony.’ According to China, since the “New Culture Movement, the introduction of Marxism and socialist thoughts into China in the 20th century… not only has there has never been a single conflict between religions or clash of civilizations in China, but a general pattern for [for all religions] (i.e. Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Catholic, Protestant, indigenous faiths, etc) has been formed and lived to this day. This time-tested experience of harmonious coexistence of multiple religions in China carries important messages for the world.”
Could it be that other nations are taking a page from China’s playbook to persecute Christians under the banner of unity, understanding, and cooperation?
The timing of the opening of the Abrahamic Center is of significant importance. Several things happen between the agreement to build the Abrahamic center and its grand opening.
First, the agreement to build the center was about the same time as China launched a persecution initiative in the name of social harmony. The two are not directly connected, but the timing could be argued to be a dark spiritual wave, because these two things were quickly followed by a world wide pandemic that started in China and quickly spread all over the world.
The pandemic allowed for universal government controls and restrictions on religious freedom in the west that had never been witnessed before in modern history. In many ways, governments took control and citizens willingly gave up control for the same reason – fear. The fear of Covid-19 reigned supreme and there was a desire for international unity. In the spirit of unity, Covid-19 became instant ruler and king over the entire world. Is this the true reason it was called the Corona-virus – meaning the ‘virus that wears a crown?’
In the midst of the pandemic, the United Nations, in spirit of unity, passed anti-blasphemy measures.
Many Christians believe that a “One world religion” is directly linked to the last days when the Antichrist will establish a one world religion which will be associated with a one world government and lead to the mark of the beast.
What role will China play in the establishment of a one world religion, one world government, and mark of the beast? In our new book, CHINA AND END TIME PROPHECY, we outline the role that China is playing in the end times and what to look for during the last days.
