In the last article we discussed how the Bible foretold that the coming Antichrist & last Beast system will be Islamic in nature. If you haven’t seen that, I recommend you to read and continue. Evidence for An Islamic Antichrist, Part – I.
Today we are going to explore more proofs that the Little Horn in the Book of Daniel will be the Caliph/Mahdi of Islam.
Here we go !
1. GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION OF ANTICHRIST’S RISE :
The Holy Bible has different names for Antichrist. Surprisingly the word ‘Antichrist’ itself appears only four times in the scripture! All of them are in John’s 1st and 2nd letters. But Bible has different names for him: The King of Babylon, Prince of Tyre, King of the North, The Assyrian, Man of Sin, Man of Lawlessness, Little Horn etc. Like many prophecy teachers claim, Will the Antichrist arise out of Europe or America ? What does Bible say about this? Lets travel through the scriptures !
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. (Revelation 13:2)
The Beast is the Empire of Antichrist, not Antichrist himself. It has the appearance of a Leopard. It has the feet of a Bear. How can we know what Leopard and Bear means ? We have to allow scripture to interpret scripture !
And behold another beast, a second, like to a Bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.
After this I beheld, and lo another, like a Leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. (Daniel 7:5,6)
The Bear is the Medo-Persian Kingdom which conquered Babylon. And the very next empire to conquer the Persian empire was Alexander’s Greek Kingdom, the Leopard must be ancient Greece (modern day Turkey).
Both the Persian and Grecian empire were located in Middle east. Both of them ruled Israel and Jerusalem. Modern nations now falling under this area are overwhelmingly ISLAMIC! Satan, The Great Dragon will give power and authority to this beast when it comes and its location will be in the MIDDLE EAST, not Europe or America. So Antichrist arising from the Islamic Middle East will most certainly be Islamic.
2. METHOD OF EXECUTION :
I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (Revelation 20:4)
John saw souls of a particular group of people who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus Christ. They were killed because they had not received the mark of the beast nor worshipped him. These are none other than Christians. Faithful believers at the time of end will not bow down to Antichrist even if it cost their lives. Remember Jesus said in Mark 8:35,
‘For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.’
Testimony about Jesus is the Gospel itself ! Jesus foretold that whoever dies for him and his Gospel will save their lives forever ! Apostle John copied this word to word from Mark chapter 8. More than that, there is a WARNING from our Lord here. If any follower of Jesus wants to save his/her life temperorily by worshipping the Antichrist, then he/she will lose their salvation FOREVER.
Have you ever wondered why beheading is the method used for killing Christians in last days? Because its the very part and parcel of Islamic heritage ! If there is one governing entity that practices beheading as a primary method of execution even in this 21st century, that’s ISLAM! You have all seen how 21 Egyptian Christians were killed by Islamic State terrorists at Libya’s shores. By beheading them! Its the Islamic way to kill one’s enemies. Allah himself advised Muslims to behead their enemies wherever they find.
‘When ye encounter the infidels (Christians and Jews), strike off their heads’ (Koran, Sura 47:4)
3. BY PEACE HE SHALL DESTROY MANY :
Through cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; and he shall exalt himself in his heart, and by peace he shall destroy many. He shall even rise against the Prince of Princes; but he shall be broken without human means. (Daniel 8:23-25)
‘ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE’ – I bet you have heard this a hundred times! If you ask a Muslim about Islam, they will say that Islam means peace. But is this correct? Simple answer would be NO. Islam does not mean Peace, Islam means Submission (Sharia Law). There are at least 109 scriptures in Koran which encourages Muslims to wage Jihad against Unbelievers.
‘fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, torture them, and lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war’ (Koran, Surah 9:5)
Can you believe this?! A god who forces his people to lie
Besides, Jihad is mandatory for every Muslim and Allah calls those who doesn’t fight as hypocrites.
Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” (Koran 2:216)
Islam is the only religion in the world which calls for the murder of those who leave the faith. Punishment for leaving Islam in Saudi Arabia and Iran (Sharia ruled nations) is DEATH!
” I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Messenger, “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.” (Bukhari Volume 9 #57)
Sounds peaceful to you? Sorry! I’m not buying it!
4. CHANGING SET TIMES AND LAWS :
He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. (Daniel 7:25)
Antichrist will speak against YHWH, The God Of Israel and persecute his people. Then he will try to change Set times and Laws. Please note that Antichrist may or may not be successful in changing times and laws. He will at least attempt to change them. Which religious and political entity in our days wants to upset established times and laws? You guessed it! Its ISLAM!
In the West, Many Muslims want to establish Sharia law by toppling democracy. They believe Sharia is given by Allah and it must replace all man-made laws. According to a recent poll conducted by Centre For Security Policy among Muslims in America, 51% of them want Sharia to be the law of the land in the US ! These are shocking numbers indeed. In many western European nations like France, Britain etc there are ‘Muslim No-Go’ zones where local police has no control. These are dangerous Muslim enclaves where no native European want to go. To conquer land wherever they go and to establish Sharia there is considered as mandatory duty by many Muslims.
Bible says that Mahdi/Antichrist will attempt to establish sharia worldwide. Most likely he will succeed in doing this only in Middle East. But we will have to wait and watch.
We have tried our best to keep you informed about the coming Islamic Antichrist. Unfortunately majority of the Church is still waiting for a ‘New world Order’ or a ‘One World Religion’ and are blind to Islam. Islam and only Islam matches all biblical attributes needed for the Beast System. Antichrist, His religion, His power base all will be Islamic and Middle Eastern centric.
