The religion of the end time in bible prophecyThe
religion of the end time will be one where the false prophet will
deceive the whole world and cause the world to worship the Antichrist by
doing miracles such as pulling fire from the sky. This religion already
exists but will be made universal by the power given the Antichrist and
the false prophet by the devil. The bible doesn't specifically tells us
what that religion will be called, but we can determine what it will be
by looking at the facts. The world is pretty much dominated by
Christianity and Islam (over half of the worlds population combined).
While Hinduism comes in a close third, it doesn't look like it will
matter in the end time. Christianity today is full of
churches proclaiming that all religions worship the same God and
therefore we should embrace them. The Catholic church promotes that idea
with Interfaith doctrine and goes as far as to state in the Catechism
that the Muslims worship the same God as Christianity and therefore will
enjoy the same salvation equally. This means that they think it doesn't
matter if you're a Christian or a Muslim and that you can find
salvation through either religion. The Muslims, on the
other hand, have no such belief. In fact, Muslim doctrine teaches that
Jesus is just a prophet, not the manifestation of God in the flesh, and
that He will return at the end time to teach Christians the Muslim way
and convert them. The prophecies of the bible and the Muslim prophecies
concerning the Antichrist (the Muslim Mahdi) and the false prophet (the
Muslim Jesus) mirror each other but the good guys of Islam are the bad
guys of the bible. This is a very good indication that the Antichrist
will rise as the Mahdi of Islam and will unite the Christian world with
him via the false prophet and create a global Islamic religion. The
bible tells us that this end time religion will be forced upon people or
they will be killed if they refuse. The Muslim prophecies tell us that
the Muslims will kill any who won't convert to Islam.The bible
tells us that the world will be fooled by the false prophet performing
miracles in the sight of men, like pulling fire from the sky. The false
prophet will seem to everyone to have Godly power and will fool everyone
into worshiping the Antichrist. Is Islam really a true religion worshiping the same God as Christianity?I
had to ask myself this question: who is the God of Islam? Is it
really the same God that Abraham worshiped as they want us to believe? It
is asserted by Muslims that the Meccan Arabs are descendents of
Ishmael, the son of Abraham. They also claim that Ishmael settled in
Mecca where he, along with Abraham, built the Kabah and passed on the
religion of the true God to his offspring. It is believed that
throughout time the Ishmaelites perverted the worship of the true God,
not by abandoning their belief in him, but by adding other gods in their
worship, thus perverting the religion of the God of their father
Ishmael. It is actually provable that this is not true, as I will show
you. In the Old Testament, near Israel's beginnings,
worship of a false God called Baal began, and consisted of worshiping
the heavenly bodies, of which the moon is the largest in the sky. The
Biblical and historical evidence shows that the Moabites worshiped Baal.
The pre-Islamic and Muslim sources show (a) that the Meccans took over
the idol Hubal from the Moabites and (b) that Allah and Hubal are
actually identical. Thus, whether the Meccans are Ishmaelites or not,
the evidence is still strong and sufficient to conclude that Muhammad's
Allah is actually Hubal, i.e., the Baal of the Moabites and thus not the
God of the Bible. Muhammad incorporated the characteristics and names
of various other gods into his new monotheistic message about Allah, but
he apparently started the construction of Allah with Hubal, the chief
god of the Meccans. The pre-Islam pagan Arabs worshipped
the Moon-god Allah by praying toward Mecca several times a day; making a
pilgrimage to Mecca; running around the temple of the Moon-god called
the Kabah; kissing the black stone; killing an animal in sacrifice to
the Moon-god; throwing stones at the devil; fasting for the month which
begins and ends with the crescent moon; giving alms to the poor, etc. If you have read the news in recent months, you know that modern day Muslims practice these very rituals.The
Muslims are worshiping the same false god that people have been
worshiping since early times as far back as Israel's beginnings. Most importantly,
Muslims say you don’t need to believe in Jesus Christ to be saved!
Muslims will admit that Jesus Christ was a true prophet, but deny that
He was the Messiah (although some Western Muslims will say He was
anointed), they will deny that He was God manifested in the flesh as of
the Son of God (John 1:14), and they will deny that He died on the cross
and rose again. Does that make sense? Absolutely not! That belief
cannot be truth because Jesus Christ Himself said He was the Messiah,
and said He was the Son of God! John 4:26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.John
9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him,
he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 36 He answered
and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? 37 And Jesus
said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with
thee. That would make Him a
false prophet according to the Muslim beliefs! How twisted is that?
But it’s a lie believed by one and a half billion people. We
absolutely must believe that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh,
was crucified for our sins and rose again. This is the gospel! John
8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if
ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.John
3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth
not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of
the only begotten Son of God.Acts 4:12
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name
under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. There is no salvation in any other name but Jesus! Not Mohammed, not Buddha; no other name… The
word Islam means "submission". Not only in the sense of submission to
Allah, but in the sense of making everyone submit to the rule of Islam.
Islam is about subduing the world and making it submit. The Muslims
believe that Mohammed is the exemplar of right conduct. They aspire to
be like him in the same manner that Christians aspire to be like Jesus.
Mohammed said to spread, through warfare, the rules of Islam. Mohammed
became increasingly violent during his career and spent 10 years in
Medina creating an army to overthrow his homeland, Mecca, after he was
ran off by the pagans in 622 AD. He killed thousands of people and
subdued Arabia through war. Muslims are encouraged to commit acts of
heroism in combat. They are promised that those who kill and are killed
will be rewarded with paradise. This is the basis for suicide
bombers. They believe that since they are killing while they are killed
that the sin of suicide is covered by the martyrdom of their action
and, as such, they will be rewarded in heaven. Islam is a religion of
political rule, a system of government. It is not about a personal
relationship with Allah, it is about bringing the world under submission
to its rule. The Quran (Koran) was written over time
during the life of Mohammed (conveyed or recited by him). He started as
a peaceful man, but as time went on he changed many of his values. As
he became increasingly violent, his writings matched his attitude. The
correct interpretation of the Quran is to take any conflict in doctrine,
of which there is a whole lot, and replace an older verse with the
latest one, supplanting it's meaning with the more recent version in a
process called abrogation. The problem is that the Quran is compiled
from the longest Sura to the shortest, so it's nearly impossible to know
which conflicting verse to believe or obey. The Muslims have a whole
committee of scholars to interpret the Quran and decide which verses
were written first and the succession of them to the last. If
you think Islam is a religion of peace, as they claim, just look at all
the wars they are involved in today, in Europe, China, Africa, etc.,
and the mindset of Muslims as a whole as they chant "Death to Israel,
Death to America", while they are working toward their goal of subduing
the world. Islam is a religion of peace only when they have conquered
the world and subjected it to the rule of Islam. Also, if the son of the
ruler of Hamas says that Islam has no moderates, then I believe him. Do they really expect us to believe they worship the same God that Christians do? The religion of the end time in Islamic prophecy vs the bibleThere
is ample evidence that the Islamic religion will be the false religion
of the End Time used the by biblical Antichrist. Here's why I think so: The
Islamic/Muslim prophecies are a parallel but opposite mirror of
biblical prophecy concerning the End Time. The Muslim good guys are the
Bible's bad guys. The
Muslim prophecies listed here are found in the Quran and the Sunnah.
Some believe Mohammed was possessed by a demon who gave him these
parallel prophecies (Mohammed actually said that he feared he was
possessed), but it could simply be that he had a copy of the book of
Revelation and patterned this all after the bible so as to look
authentic. Personally, I believe he was either possessed or given this
information and guided to build the Islamic religion by a demon or the
devil himself. Take a look at the following list: Please
remember that these Islamic prophecies are not biblical but they show
how very deeply the Muslims of the world will be fooled because they
mirror so closely what will actually happen, and it will seem as if
their prophecies are coming true even though they are supporting the
devil and his Antichrist.
- Bible: The Antichrist is an unparalleled political, military, and religious leader that will emerge in the last days.
- Islam: The Mahdi is an unparalleled political, military, and religious leader that will emerge in the last days.
- Bible: the False Prophet is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge in the last days who will support the Antichrist.
- Islam: the Muslim Jesus is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge in the last days to support the Mahdi.
The Antichrist and the False Prophet together will have a powerful
army that will do great damage to the earth in an effort to subdue
every nation and dominate the world.
The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will have a powerful army that will
attempt to control every nation of the earth and dominate the world.
- Bible: The False Prophet is described essentially as a dragon in lamb's clothing.
The Muslim Jesus comes bearing the name of the one that the world
knows as 'The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ." Yet the Muslim Jesus comes
to murder all those who do not submit to Islam.
- Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet establish a new world order.
- Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus establish a new world order.
- Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet institute new laws for the whole earth.
- Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus institute Islamic law all over the earth.
- Bible: The Antichrist is said to "change the times."
It is quite certain that if the Mahdi established Islam all over the
earth, he would discontinue the use of Saturday and Sunday as the
weekend for days of rest but rather Friday, the holy day of Islam.
Also, he would most certainly eliminate the Gregorian calendar and
replace it with the Islamic calendar used in every Islamic country.
The Antichrist and the False Prophet will both be powerful religious
leaders who will attempt to institute a universal world religion.
- Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will institute Islam as the only religion on the earth.
- Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will execute anyone who does not submit to their world religion.
- Islam: Likewise, the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will execute anyone who does not submit to Islam.
The Antichrist and the False Prophet will specifically use beheading
as the primary means of execution for non-conformists.
- Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will use the Islamic practice of beheading for executions.
- Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will have a specific agenda to kill as many Jews and Christians as possible.
The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus hate Jews and Christians and will kill
as many as possible until only a few are left hiding behind rocks and
- Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will attack to conquer and seize Jerusalem (the battle of Armageddon).
- Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will attack to reconquer and seize Jerusalem for Islam.
- Bible: The Antichrist will set himself up in the Jewish Temple as his seat of authority (the abomination of desolation).
- Islam: The Mahdi will establish the Islamic caliphate from Jerusalem.
- Bible: The False Prophet is said to do many miracles to deceive as many as possible into supporting the Antichrist.
The Mahdi himself is said to control the weather and the crops. His
face is said to glow. We can also assume that since Jesus is viewed as
having been empowered by Allah to work miracles when He was here on
earth the first time, He will most likely be expected to continue to
do so when He returns.
The belief at the time of Muhammad (and still believed by some people
today) was that the Antichrist is described as riding on a white horse
in the Book of Revelation.
- Islam: The Mahdi is described as riding on a white horse (ironically in the same verse in Revelation).
The Antichrist is said to make a peace treaty (with many) with Israel
for seven years (the Confirmation of the Covenant).
- Islam: The Mahdi is said to make a peace treaty through a Jew (specifically a Levite) for exactly seven years.
Jesus the Jewish Messiah will return to defend the Jews in Israel from
a military attack from a vast coalition of nations led by the
Antichrist and the False Prophet (the battle of Armageddon).
The Dajjal, the Islamic Antichrist, will gain a great Jewish
following and claim to be Jesus Christ and fight against the Mahdi and
the Muslim Jesus.
The antichrist spirit specifically denies the most unique and central
doctrines of Christianity, namely the divinity of Jesus, the
incarnation of God in the flesh, and the substitutionary death of Jesus
on the Cross.
- Islam: Islam
doctrinally and spiritually specifically denies the most unique and
central doctrines of Christianity, namely the divinity of Jesus, the
incarnation of God in the flesh, and the substitutionary death of
Jesus on the Cross.
- Islam: Islam
The primary warning of Jesus and the Apostle Paul was to warn
Christians of the abundance of deceit and deception in the last days.
Islam is perhaps the only religion on earth that practices deceit as
one of its tools to assist its own ascendancy. It actually has a
specific doctrine which allows and even calls for deception to be used
to achieve its desired end.
From the Bible and history we learn that the final Antichrist empire
will be a revived version of the empire that succeeds the Roman Empire
(the iron mingled with clay of Daniel 2).
The empire that succeeded the Roman Empire was the combined Holy
Roman Empire in parallel with the Islamic Ottoman Empire.
When the Antichrist emerges, a system will already exist poised to
receive him as a savior and to give allegiance to him.
is already the second largest religion and combined with Christianity
constitutes over half of the worlds population. Islam awaits the
coming of the Mahdi with universal anticipation. The Catholic church
and many Christian churches believe that the Muslims will be saved
just like Christianity will be, and believe that they worship the same
God as Christianity. It's a very short step to convert to Islam if
that is believed to be the truth.
can see that the whole world will be fooled by the false prophet and
the Antichrist, including the Muslims. The Muslims will believe it is
their Mahdi, while the rest of the world will follow the interfaith
movement into believing that being a Muslim is the same as Christianity
in that we all worship the same God and therefore will enjoy the same
salvation. As stated, the Catholic church has already included Islam as
part of God's people and many Christian churches are following this
belief. This means that everyone who is fooled by this will think it's
perfectly ok to convert to Islam. What will the world of the end time look like? The nations of the end timeThe
empires of the world from Babylon to today were foretold and since we
live in a time where history proves what those prophecies were, we have
the unique pleasure of seeing prophecy unfold. The book of Daniel gives us two symbolic pictures of the end time governments.
one perspective we see that there will be 4 kingdoms in existence at
the end time and they will exist when Jesus returns, conquers them, and
sets up His kingdom on the earth. These kingdoms mentioned
specifically are Britain, Russia, Germany, and the final government of
the New World Order that the Antichrist will rule.
- In the
other perspective we see that the Medes and the Persians rule after
Babylon, then the Greek empire, then the Roman, and finally the Holy
Roman / Islamic Ottoman co-empires. Both of these final empires
together comprised the total area controlled by the Roman Empire. From
the Bible and history we learn that the final Antichrist empire will
be a revived version of the empire that succeeds the Roman Empire.
bible tells us that this final (divided, co-empire) will be used as the
world government of the Antichrist and his false prophet. The
Antichrist will bring the Muslim world together, reviving the Ottoman
empire, while the false prophet will bring in Europe, reviving the Holy
Roman empire, and the two will unite them as one. The bible tells us
that the Antichrist will rule the whole world, but it also says that
during this last 3.5 years he will be fighting wars as he conquers more
and more nations. Not all nations will fall under his rule in so short a
time (the area which is now Jordan is one that is specifically
mentioned to “escape out of his hand”, among others), but he will rule
the last world dominating empire.The bible tells us that some of
the nations that exist today will exist when Jesus returns and that the
Holy Roman / Ottoman Empires will be revived and be united in the New
World Order that the Antichrist will use to rule the world. Islam is predicted in the Fourth Seal of Revelation.In
Revelation 6:1-8 and Zechariah 6:1-8, we're given a warning of the
spirits that will be controlling the world in the last days. The
pale/green horse of Revelation and the grisled and bay horses of
Zechariah tell us about the spirit of Islam. The pale
horse went south and Death sat on him and Hell followed him and he was
given power to kill with the sword and hunger and the beasts of the
world. The southern hemisphere contains most of the poverty stricken
nations. War, crime, revolution, hunger and beasts of the earth are
more prominent in the more backward nations of the third world. The
last 100 years have seen more death than the entire history of man
(wars, abortions, etc.) The passage in Zechariah splits the pale/green
horse in two; into the grisled and bay horses. That makes this prophecy
easier to understand in that it has two components: Islam and Death. A
very interesting thing about this horse is that the meaning of the
original Greek word is interpreted as “pale” in the King James Bible,
but the word chloros (khlo-ros'); also means greenish, or pale green.
This word (chloros) is also used in 3 other places in the bible: Mark
6:39, Revelation 8:7 and Revelation 9:4. In all three of these other
places it was interpreted correctly as green. This
horse was also given power over the fourth part of the earth. Since we
know these horses are spirits, it is very, very interesting that the
color of Islam is green (their flags, etc.), and that there are 1.48
billion Muslims (Islam followers) in the world today. That’s almost
exactly one fourth of the world population. This horse went south; and
96.5% of the world’s Muslims are in the southern hemisphere, in Africa
and Southern Asia. Can Islam be defined as “Death”? I’ve seen
arguments that the terrorists are only the “radicals” and poor Muslims
being recruited, but if you look at the history of the men that hijacked
the planes on 9/11, they came from middle class and wealthy families.
The attacks that are happening everywhere, the suicide bombings, the
masses of Muslims chanting, “Death to Israel, death to America”, are not
only the poor and radical, it is the mindset of Islam as a whole. Look
at what happened recently in Palestine. They knowingly elected a
terrorist organization into their government! And, given what we know
about Islam and how it will be used by the Antichrist, the term “death”
here may be referring to the “second death” of Revelation where those
that are not saved come before God on judgment day. What we're waiting for in the near futureThe
event we're looking for right now, that could happen very soon, is the
Confirmation of the Covenant. The confirmation of the covenant is this:
there will be an international agreement to confirm the status of
Jerusalem and the permanent borders of Israel. These things are being
fought over right now with the Palestinians. The bible says that the
Antichrist will confirm the covenant along with many others for 7 years.
This event will be the beginning of the last 7 years of Daniels 490
years. It may be hard to identify the Antichrist at that time because he
will be just one of many.Approximately 8 months (.7 years) after the Confirmation of the Covenant, the Antichrist will begin to take over the world. The Antichrist and the false prophet will team up around this time. The Jewish temple will be rebuilt and animal sacrifices will be resumed by the Jews. Jerusalem
will be “surrounded by armies”, which is likely a picture of it being
policed by UN and/or other forces to force peace in the Middle East. In the midst of this last 7 years (three and one half years in), the Antichrist
will cause the animal sacrifices being performed in the rebuilt temple
to cease, and will cause the “abomination of desolation” by either
claiming to be God or acting in the place of God. That is when we will
definitely know who he is. The
false prophet will cause the world to worship the Antichrist. This will
be made possible by the power given him by the devil himself. He will
perform miracles before the world, like pulling fire from the sky. God's
two witnesses will begin their prophecy at this time. They will not be
able to be killed for the whole 3.5 years but will be killed at the very
end. The bible tells us that they (the world) shall say,
“peace and safety”. This is the call of the New World Order. The
Antichrist will come in the name of peace to take over the world, and
the bible says that the people of the world will be thinking they've
finally made it, reveling and partying, proclaiming that mankind has
finally done it and brought peace to the world! The
Antichrist will implement what's called the mark of the beast. It will
very likely be a RFID type of system. They can put a chip under your
skin today and they even have a tattoo ink that is RFID capable, so
maybe that will be utilized. What's certain is that this will be forced
upon all people and you won't be able to get a job, buy food, go to the
doctor, have a bank account, or pretty much have any way to “buy or
sell” unless you submit. This will undoubtedly come with some sort of
oath or pledge of allegiance to the Antichrist and his government. It
may even mean conversion to Islam. This will also be a superhighway straight to hell.
Any person who takes the mark of the beast is condemned by God. It will
be a horrible time for the people who worship the one true God, Jesus
Christ. This is what is termed as the Great Tribulation. The
Antichrist will “cause craft to prosper”. He will “understand dark
sentences”. There will very likely be many people who will start to use
dark and evil power to perform sorcery and witchcraft. So, will Islam rule the world? According
to the prophecies of the bible, I believe it will. If you want more
