Antichrist

The Antichrist: Part 1

If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. ~ Revelation 14:9-10.

The fulfillment of this prophecy has been obvious every night on the evening news for decades, but we in the West have missed it because we have been trained to look for a computer chip as the “mark of the beast.”

Walid Shoebat spoke at a church I attended several years ago and opened my eyes to this fact. Prior to that, I was looking (incorrectly) to Rome, the Catholic Church, and the European Union as the empire of the Antichrist– despite there being ZERO Biblical evidence for this popular Protestant tradition! I had to admit I was wrong and move on in the truth. Sadly, legions of Protestants are stuck on that foolish tradition, unable to admit that they could ever be wrong. Admit your error and move on. I did it, and it’s very liberating. We are supposed to confess our sins and errors, not pretend they don’t exist.

Now let’s continue with the Bible’s vivid prophetic accuracy.

He [the Antichrist] will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. ~ Daniel 7:25

There is a campaign underway by Islamic scholars to stop using Greenwich Mean Time as the standard for world time, and to replace it with “Mecca Time.” The Time Magazine headline and photo below address this campaign.

And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. ~ Revelation 20:4

For this prophecy to be true, there would have to be a people in this modern day and age, an age of lethal injection and humane execution, that is actually still beheading people– and they would have to be applying this barbaric execution method not only to murderers, but also to Christians. Is there such a people? Yes, and it is the same people who take a mark on their foreheads, and want to change the set times. The Bible is the only religious book on earth that even attempts prophecy like this, and it’s right 100% of the time!

Islamists want to impose Sharia Law on the world, and have already imposed it on the many countries over which they have gained control. Personal freedoms are trampled upon.

Iran urged to halt executions for alcohol consumption

June 29, 2012 | 7:56 am

An excerpt from this article:

In the Islamic Republic, drinking alcohol is considered a hadd offense, or a crime against God, and receives specific punishment under Islamic law [Sharia Law]. Usually, a person caught drinking alcohol gets 80 lashes, according to Human Rights Watch. But an article in the Iranian penal code stipulates that persons will be sentenced to death on their third conviction.

Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist — he denies the Father and the Son. ~ 1 John 2:22-23

Denying that Jesus Christ is the Son of God is a primary tenet of Islam.

They say, ‘God has begotten a son.’ God forbid! Self-sufficient is He. His is all that the heavens and the earth contain. Surely for this you have no sanction. Whould you say of God what you know not? ~ Qur’an 10:68

Those who say: ‘The Lord of Mercy has begotten a son,’ preach a monstrous falsehood, at which the very heavens might crack, the earth break asunder, and the mountains crumble to dust. That they should ascribe a son to the Merciful, when it does not become the Lord of Mercy to beget one! ~ Qur’an 19:88

Never has God begotten a son, nor is there any other god besides Him. Were this otherwise, each god would govern his own creation, each holding himself above the other. Exalted be God above their falsehoods! ~ Qur’an 23:91

Inscription around inside of the Dome of the Rock: “There is no God but God; Muhammad is his Prophet. Jesus is also his Prophet, but God has no son; He neither Begets nor is Begotten.”

Jesus is also his Prophet, but God has no son; He neither Begets nor is Begotten.”

These facts are the tip of the iceberg. The Bible is filled with references to an End Times World Power, and they all match Islam perfectly.

The Bible is amazing in its unambiguous prophetic filtering. For example, one can take a single prophecy about the Messiah and apply it to someone it may have fit other than Jesus of Nazareth. But God is a statistical genius as well as a genius of every other sort. God does not give us just one prophecy about an item as important as the Messiah’s identity. Instead, God fills the Bible with prophecies about the Messiah’s identity. Therefore, when taken in totality, there is effectively zero statistical chance that anyone but Jesus of Nazareth could possibly be the Messiah.

God is similarly unambiguous in his description of an item as important as the world power from which the antichrist will arise. God is not leaving us guessing. He is telling us very plainly and very undeniably where to look, and that time is short, and that we need to spread his truth boldly, and pray for his mercy on us and on the Muslim people.

If you doubt what I’ve pointed out here, then prove me wrong. Simply find another world power that so perfectly matches the Biblical prophecies of the Antichrist. You can try applying these prophecies to the Vatican, to the European Union, to the United Nations, and many other powers, and none of them will match. Islam is the only match.

Remarkably, the prophecies of this power start much earlier than the Book of Revelation, or even the Book of Daniel. They start in the first book of the Bible, Genesis. After The Fall of Man, God tells the serpent:

And I will put enmity between you and the woman… ~ Genesis 3:15

There is not a political or religious system on earth with more enmity toward women than Islam.

Another remarkable fact about this world power that so perfectly matches the Biblical prophecies written about it are the identity and geography of the people comprising it. To look at a map of the Middle East is to see that this is the same people and the same ancient hatred of Yahweh and his Chosen People that has existed from the time of Abraham. Nothing has changed. There is nothing new under the sun.

“You shall name him Ishmael [Ishmael’s descendants comprise modern-day Muslims surrounding the nation of Israel], for the LORD has heard of your misery. He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.” ~ Genesis 16:11-12

Then God said, “Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. And as for Ishmael , I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation. But my covenant I will establish with Isaac [Isaac’s descendants are the Jewish people. Despite being impossibly outnumbered by Ishmael’s descendants who surround Israel, Isaac’s descendants survive and thrive because they are God’s Chosen People, which drives the world crazy!], whom Sarah will bear to you by this time next year.” ~ Genesis 17:19-21

The Bible is always proven true.

  1. Brilliant article! There’s a prophecy site mideastview.org that posts articles like this…more people are waking up!!

  2. They believe Isa( Jesus) to be a great prophet that will be here in the end times. Yet they don’t respect Jesus at all. They give their preachers or whatever they call them at the mosque more respect than they do to Isa that claims he is a great prophet. Cant they see how abdurd their reasoning is? There is much much more but I am but a babe when it comes to theology. May God bless you all in Christ Jesus.

    • Jimmy, thank you for your comment. And thank you for being humble. My guess is that you probably know more than you give yourself credit for. Stay humble before the Lord, and stay diligent in your studies. God bless you too!

  3. I wished the Church would wake up from the slumber and see that Islam is the great harlot that shall birth the “other than christ”. New Jerusalem is our mother and Islam is the mother of the false one
