This sermon discusses the historical roots of the conflict between Islam and the Western World. Several caliphates have arisen since the time of Muhammad that ruled over vast areas of the Middle East, northern Africa and parts of Europe. Daniel 11 speaks of an end-time king of the south who will attack the king of the north. A new caliphate was declared this summer on June 29th. Jesus taught His disciples to watch the events that will lead to His return. One highly important area to continue to watch is the Arab world.
