Islam, The Biblical Antichrist

There has never been, nor will there ever be, anything more ‘anti-Christ’ than Islam

Contrary to the popular interpretations of end-time prophecies known to Bible students as the Antichrist, believed to come out of the revived Roman Empire known as the (EU) European Union. Europe today instead of becoming the world's political and economic powerhouse, it is on the verge of collapse.

More than 20 years ago, as I began to study Islamic, Jewish, and Christian history and theology, I intently watched as a very popular Christian television prophecy teacher and his wife declared, “…the present formation of the European Union is literally the fulfillment of Bible prophecy right before our eyes!” He wasn’t alone in this theology; most of Christendom had eagerly jumped aboard this train.

According to this teacher, the creation of the European Union represented a biblically prophesied revived Roman Empire. Because the last-days empire of the Antichrist, as described in the Books of Daniel and Revelation is portrayed as a 10-nation alliance, this teacher confidently declared that when the number of EU member states reached 10, this would signal the imminent return of Jesus Christ. Soon, just as this teacher had predicted, the number of EU member states had reached the magic number of 10. But then’ the number reached 11 and then 12, soon there were 20. Today there are 27 member states. The teacher's very confident predictions had become a little shaky to say the least. The present harsh realities in Europe may soon cause all of this Euro-centric, restored Roman Empire prognostication to come crashing down. Many Christians may become disillusioned as the EU fights for its very survival, rather than for the global dominance that was predicted.

Despite its popularity, the Euro-centric end-time perspective has never actually represented anything akin to Christian or Jewish orthodoxy, dogma or any fundamental biblical truth for that matter. Throughout the history of the church, many great Christian leaders have looked not to Europe, but to the Middle East for the emergence of an end-time empire. In fact, going back to the first few centuries of the church, the consistent testimony of early Messianic Jews and Christian believers is that the Antichrist, his empire and his religion would arise out of the Middle East, and not Europe.

As such, rather than being blown around in the wind of speculation yet again, what many teachers and students of Bible prophecy are awakening to now, is the reality that the biblical prophecies about the last days are about Jerusalem, Israel and --- are Middle-Eastern-centric. What many Westerners, and perhaps Americans most of all, often fail to recognize is the fact that the Bible is a thoroughly Eastern book. Always has been. As shocking as this may be to some, the sun does not rotate around the earth, and likewise the Bible was not written primarily for Americans, or even Westerners. In fact the Bible was written for Jews. Yes even the New Testament. They are the subject matter, not Americans.

It was not God’s plan or intention that the Jews would reject their own Messiah. It was the deception of Satan. Christianity and the Gentiles became the substitute for the intended fulfillment of ‘Messianic Judaism’. Messianic Judaism by the way, despite the dominance of Jewish orthodoxy, is today, on the rise in Israel, also part of Bible prophecy.

The biblical Antichrist is one and the same as the Quran's Muslim Mahdi, the resurrected 12 Caliphate of Islam to rule the WORLD NATION OF ISLAM (known in the Quran as the Caliph or the Ummah). The Bible abounds with proofs that the Antichrist's empire will consist only of nations that are, today, Islamic. Despite the numerous prevailing arguments for the emergence of a revived European Roman empire as the Antichrist's powerbase, the specific nations the Bible identifies as comprising the empire of the Antichrist are today all Muslim. Moreover Islam today, is the only nation who has, and always has had, the agenda of ruling the world.

That being said, and since it is the world that will be ruled by the religion of the Antichrist, Western Europe and America of course is included. Moreover, today one can easily see that for the second time in history, Europe is being taken over by the Middle Eastern religion of Islam, and not the Roman religion.

The key error of many prophecy scholars, involves the misinterpretation of a prediction by Daniel to the Babylonian King, King Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel describes the rise and fall of empires of the future, leading to the end-times. Western Christians have viewed those empires as Rome, when, Rome never actually conquered Babylon, and so it must be disqualified as a possibility.

It had to be another empire that rose, and fell, and rose again that would lead to the rule of this man of Satan described in the Bible. That empire is part of the world Nation of Islam, the Islamic empire, which did conquer Babylon and, in fact, rules over it even today.

The Turkish Islamic Ottoman Empire for example rose in 1453 after the Crusades and fell in 1924 after the First World War. In 1928 just 4 years later the Islamic Ottoman Empire was resurrected in Egypt under a new name, The Muslim Brotherhood and today there are chapters and secret front groups of the newly resurrected Ottoman Empire all over the world, 80 countries, including the United States. The Antichrist will rise out of the Nation of Islam, and whatever the name, it will be Islamic, and whatever the location it will be an Islamic State.

Today just 83 years later Egypt is going through a militant Islamic Jihad, in a country of nearly 80% so-called ‘moderate Muslims’ the Empire of the Muslim Brotherhood is threatening to take over and establish yet another Islamic State.

Evangelical Christians believe the Bible predicts a charismatic ruler, the Antichrist, will arise in the last days promising peace, before the return of Jesus. The Quran also predicts that a man, called the Mahdi (the Muslim Messiah the resurrected Prophet Muhammad), will rise up to lead the nations, pledging to usher in an era of peace. Islam today deceptively portrays itself to the world, as a “Nation of Peace.”

Today, some scholars, students, and teachers are acknowledging the consistent testimony of the prophets as pointing us to the Middle East today. As any realtor will tell you, it's all about location, location, location. Likewise, as any astute Bible student knows, the first issue that must be established when attempting to properly interpret the Bible is context, context, and context. Simply stated, the context of virtually all biblical prophecy ‘is Israel and the Middle East’. Jesus will not be returning to Rome, London, or Minot North Dakota, no, He will be returning to Jerusalem my friend.

Literally every one of the final battles as depicted by all of the biblical prophets, take place in Israel and the surrounding vicinity. When the prophets specify which nations surround Israel to attack her, the wording used in the Hebrew is “goyim caybib”, when translated into English means “the surrounding nations.” These are Israel's neighbors; they are not references to Belgium, Luxembourg, or Paris.

THE BOTTOM LINE: As I stated at the beginning, there is no nation on this earth more anti-Christ, than the Nation of Islam. While Islam has attempted to deceive the world and has aggressively strived to dominate it since the year AD 610, their god Allah on the other hand, has been successful in deceiving the world’s people since the beginning of time. The deception started with Allah the angel of darkness in the Middle East; and it will end with Allah the angel of death in the Middle East. And then… ‘The perfect will come’.

“He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches”. -- The Revelation of John

Think about it…

If you haven’t already done so, then please take the time to learn a brief history and agenda of Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood by watching a lecture by the Christian Lebanese American, Brigitte Gabriel in five parts. It will truly open your eyes!

Islam is completely against the anti-Christ. We name him the maseeh dajal (which means the false messiah in Arabic.) He will claim that he is god. We believe that god can never come down to this earth. You will never see him here on earth. Isn't god greater than all of us? How could god be greater than us and have kids just like us. He is completely different beyond your imagination. There is nothing about Islam that is evil. NOTHING. We don't eat pork, drink alcohol. Those things have caused millions of problems. Islam is a nation of peace; it is the world that deceptively portrays Islam as an evil religion
Nonetheless, back to the antichrist. Your statements about how Islam is a deceitful religion doesn’t make sense to me. Yes anti Christ’s nations will be in the Islamic nations not because the anti-Christ is with us Muslims but because he is against us. He want’s to take control over the Islamic countries, make Islam week and destroy us. He wants to do that from Jerusalem because he is a Jew and there are Muslims around so he can easily destroy us. Now the Israelis took over Jerusalem and Jerusalem has Muslim countries all around. The Israeli’s took over Palestine made it Israel and that is where the anti-Christ will rule the world from, and that’s where and why the anti-Christ is In the Islamic regions. Hope that clarified.

What you said is true, I'm not muslim but it seems like a peaceful religion. I feel like the religion they most attack is the religion they are scared of. Why would they be scared of religion if it wasn't right.
I don't know just something to add to this comment and think of.

the bible in the quran one is truth one is false they may sound alike look alike but have different meanings christianity god came down to save us while islam is trying to dye for god.they tell them they will have 72 virgens an 72 mantions in heaven for martydom do u really think your going to have sex in heaven you know how god feels about sexual sin.they belive that god can,t have a son but they do belive that jesus was born of a virgin .each one on earth was concieved in our mothers womb by our biological farthers seed which can be traced through blood or dna testing well whos seed was planted in mary the mother of jesus. also jesus also tells us that they will want to kill u in the name of god thinking their doing god a service. sounds like radical exteremist. the bible also talks about marters being beheaded for their faith in jesus christ.well look back to iraq war soldiers being beheaded who does beheading/ i dont condem their faith i pray that all people of race religion come to the truth that god loves us all his creation that he longs for intamacy in relationship with us thru his son jesus christ who was god in the flesh . seek the truth in gods word for yourself and let the truth set u free .
