If you are a regular visitor at our blog or Facebook page ‘Revelation Revealed’, then you would be certain that we stick to the theory that the Antichrist, long foretold by various prophets of the Bible will be Muslim. We strongly believe that the Mahdi of Islam is the Antichrist of the Bible. Just like Jews and Christians await for their Messiah, Muslims also are anticipating for a savior like figure known as Imam Al Mahdi, whom they believe will redeem and bring Islam to the top of the world. Many devout Muslims have asked themselves this question, ” If Islam is the one true religion of God, why have we been playing a second fiddle to Christianity all these 1400 years? “. This Mahdi along with Islamic version of Jesus will ‘break the cross’ and kill Kafirs (unbelievers) according to Islamic writings. Almost every Muslim scholar agrees that once Mahdi arises, he along with Islamic Jesus will appeal to all Christians to embrace Islam or otherwise be killed. If we have faith, we should not fear. Satan wants us to fear, which is why Islam is so violent.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Our Lord also foretold that during last days many will come in his name and shall deceive many.
Mathew 24:5 – For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.
But how can we be 100 % sure that Antichrist will be Muslim? What is the Bible’s take on it? Following are some of the reasons for our assertion:-
1. BREAKING OF THE COVENANT :
“And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.” Daniel 9: 27 (NASB)
From this scripture, it is evident that Antichrist will confirm a Covenant with many for one week. Week in Hebrew means ‘Shabua’ or a period of seven years. But after just 3.5 years he will break the covenant and put end to sacrifice and grain offering. It simply means that Antichrist will not keep his promise and will desolate the holy place.
In the Muslim view, treaties with Infidels are NOT to be obeyed. They are to be entered into when Muslims feel that they are at the moment too weak to do otherwise, and where they sense that they can gain, in the end, by entering temporarily into a treaty with Infidels. For Muslims, every treaty with Infidels is merely a “truce” treaty, a “hudna.” The very idea that Muslims could recognize the permanence of an Infidel nation-state goes against everything in Islam. This is exactly what Antichrist is going to do. It’s no surprise that he breaks the 7 year treaty just after 1260 days or 42 months, because he obeys Allah and is a Muslim. That’s the time he needs for a final assault against Israel and Jerusalem.
2. ISLAMIC LUST FOR JERUSALEM :
Far be it removed from His transcendent majesty that He should have a son. ” Have you ever heard this phrase? This is one among many inscriptions that we can see on the Islamic Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism and Christianity. This is the place where Abraham almost sacrificed Isaac. This is the place where God’s Temple once stood. This is the place where Jesus was crucified and will one day rule the whole world. Satan knows what his end would be. He knows Eternal fire is his reward. But he is trying to upset God’s plan by using Muslims as puppets. Satan wants to prevent Jesus returning and reigning from Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the city God has chosen. King David said ” If I forget you, Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill “. That’s the passion of Jewish people towards that city. Not just Jews and Christians, Muslims also consider Jerusalem as their holy place even though Jerusalem isn’t even mentioned in Koran once. Muslims believe that this is from where Mohammad ascended to heaven. In 1967, Jews recaptured Jerusalem from Muslims. After almost 2,000 years Jerusalem was once again under Jewish custody. To Arabs, this failure is their ‘Greatest Disaster’ in the history of Islam. Bible foretold that Jerusalem would be the focal point of world conflict during last days.
On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it. (Zechariah 12:3)
Jesus also foretold us that Jerusalem will be trampled by gentiles.
They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. (Luke 21:24)
Now we only need to know who these invading people are. Are they Europeans as popular Bible teachers say?
Behold, I am about to make Jerusalem a cup of staggering to all the surrounding peoples. The siege of Jerusalem will also be against Judah. (Zechariah 12:2)
Key word is Surrounding Peoples. Who are the people group that surrounds Israel on every side? They are Muslims ! You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out. They are the same people who call for the death of Israel day and night, not Europeans.
3. WORSHIPING THE DRAGON :
People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?” (Revelation 13:4)
Here, we can see that the people will worship the Dragon/Satan which gives Power to the beast empire. Who are these people that worship the beast? How can we recognize them? The word Worship is the key. When we Christians hear the word worship we often think about singing hymns and shouting hallelujah ! But that’s not what Revelation 13:4 is trying to convey. The Greek word used for Worship here is ‘proskuneo’ (STRONGS G4352). It means ” To fall upon the knees and touch the ground with forehead as an expression of profound reverence “. This is exactly how Muslims pray to Allah ! Muslims will worship Satan/ Allah for reviving their Caliphate. An Islamic Caliphate is simply a political and religious Super State which contains almost all Islamic nations under one man, the Caliph or Khilafah in Arabic, ruled according to sharia.
4. DENIAL OF FATHER AND SON :
Who is the liar, except the one denying that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one denying the Father and the Son. (1 John 2: 22)
Christ in Hebrew means Messiah, who is the anointed one from God. The Messiah is God himself as he is called YHWH, Our Righteousness.
“Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “When I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; And He will reign as king and act wisely And do justice and righteousness in the land. “In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell securely; And this is His name by which He will be called, ‘The LORD our righteousness.’ (Jeremiah 23: 6)
Messiah Yeshua exists with God from Eternity to Eternity !
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. (Micah 5: 2)
So whoever denies the deity of Messiah and the Fatherhood of God is the ANTICHRIST. Antichrist system MUST deny the Father and the Son. May people think that Pope is the Antichrist and RCC will be his institution. But that is incorrect. The Roman Catholic Church believes that Jesus is the Christ. They believe that God is the Father of his people. They believe that God is triune. They believe that Jesus died for the sins of the world. But Islam DENIES ALL OF THESE !
a) Islam denies that Jesus died on the cross:-
And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them. (Surah 4: 157a)
And lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain. But Allah took him up unto Himself. (Surah 4:157)
b) Islam denies that God is a Father:-
And (both) the Jews and the Christians say: “We are the children of Allah and His loved ones.” Say: “Why then does He punish you for your sins?” Nay, you are but human beings, of those He has created, He forgives whom He wills and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, and to Him is the return (of all). (Surah 5:18)
c) Islam denies that Jesus is the Son Of God :-
The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! ( Surah 9:30, Yusif Ali)
d) Islam denies Trinity :-
They have certainly disbelieved who say, “Allah is the third of three.” And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment. (Surah 5:72-73)
Now tell me, if Islam isn’t the Antichrist system, then what is? The information I have provided here is only a fraction of what Bible really has to say. If God wills we will be adding more information to the blog as we could. And do not forget to subscribe to our blog if you like. Blessings !
