Ed, interesting thoughts from Jones. What do you think? Is Jones right?
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of His Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

I have not researched history on this topic, first hand, as yet.

Assembling accurate historical documents will require God's help and motivation.
Grateful for Psalms 32 and Titus 2:10 - The divinity of Christ is acknowledged in the unity of the children of God.  {11MR 266.2}

It is important to note Islam was used by God to block the spread of the papacy and to allow the Protestant Reformation to succeed. The pope's armies had to deal with Islam and thus Luther and the reformation were not the object of war.

The fifth and sixth trumpets are an accurate prophecy of the attack and then the fall of Constantinople, then the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1840. The dates are accurate when using a day for a year principle.

In the year 1840 another remarkable fulfillment of prophecy excited widespread interest. Two years before, Josiah Litch, one of the leading ministers preaching the second advent, published an exposition of Revelation 9, predicting the fall of the Ottoman Empire. According to his calculations, this power was to be overthrown "in A.D. 1840, sometime in the month of August;" and only a few days previous to its accomplishment he wrote: "Allowing the first period, 150 years, to have been exactly fulfilled before Deacozes ascended the throne by permission of the Turks, and that the 391 years, fifteen days, commenced at the close of the first period, it will end on the 11th of August, 1840, when the Ottoman powerin Constantinople may be expected to be broken. And this, I believe, will be found to be the case."--Josiah Litch, in Signs of the Times, and Expositor of Prophecy, Aug. 1, 1840.
 
At the very time specified, Turkey, through her ambassadors, accepted the protection of the allied powers of Europe, and thus placed herself under the control of Christian nations. The event exactly fulfilled the prediction.  GC 334,5.

Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

So should we really have any thing to worry about from ISIS?

Here is an interesting and important question. When Adam sinned, he did so in holy flesh. When probation closes, there will be living saints on this Earth. Jesus will have left the heavenly sanctuary and there will be no more mercy, no more forgiveness of sin. How will the character of Adam before he sinned compare to the character of the least one of those living saints that are alive when the character of every person on the Earth is fixed? This will be that time: "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still." Revelation 22:11.

Remember that we are comparing the character of one who had not yet sinned and who was living holy flesh, to one who is living after 6,000 years of sin and living in sinful flesh. 6,000 years later, the result of sin can be seen in the degradation of the physical body, the dullness of mind of most of humanity, and the degree of immorality sweeping over the Earth. If you were left stranded on an island, who would you choose to be your only help, Adam or the one who had inherited human nature after 6,000 years of sin?
