The Religion of the End-Time in Bible Prophecy:

Will Islam Rule the World?
 

Islam is a mystery of the darkest character. It defies explanation along any rational or natural basis. It is, without a doubt, a designed counterpart of Christianity. Its visible source was in a personal leader who claimed to be the sole representative and prophet of God (more accurately, Allah) -- and in a book that is venerated by its adherents as the word of God. Islam has fed on violence and deceit from its very inception. It has spread like a cancer and has proven to be equally as deadly. It sanctifies Islamic murder and mayhem and turns it into divine injunctions from Allah.

The 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 Satan. 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, Atheism and Communism make up most of the remainder, it seems apparent that they will not play much of a role 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 Article 841 of the Catechism, that 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 the Messiah is a prophet, 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 Messiah -- Isa) 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 (leader of Catholicism) 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?

We had to ask ourselves 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 we 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 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 the Messiah to be saved! Muslims will admit that Yeshua was a true prophet, but deny that he was the Messiah (although some Western Muslims will say he was anointed), and they deny that he died on the tree and rose again. Does that make sense? Absolutely not! That belief cannot be truth because Yeshua himself said he was the Messiah, and said he was the first-born Son of God!

John 4:25-26: "The woman said to him, 'I know that Messiah is coming' (who is called Christ). 'When he comes, he will tell us all things.' Jesus said to her, 'I who speak to you 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."

Mark 14:61: "Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 62 And Jesus said, I am."

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 the Messiah is the Anointed One, was crucified for the sins of Israel 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 that of the Messiah! Not Mohammed, not Buddha; no other name!

Islam goes even further than simple disbelief, and says that the name of the Messiah is "the most awful name":

"Allah's Apostle said, 'The most awful name in Allah's sight on the Day of Resurrection, will be (that of) a man calling himself Malik Al-Amlak (the king of kings)'" (Hadith Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 224: Narrated by Abu Huraira).

It should be noted that the term "king of kings" was a ruling title employed primarily by monarchs based in the Middle East, and does not necessarily refer to Divinity. The title is commonly seen as equivalent to that of Emperor, outranking that of king in prestige.

Now, according to the Word of YEHOVAH God in Revelation 17:14, the Messiah is the "king of kings" and "lord of lords." This means that Muslims are instructed to hate the true Messiah of the Bible.

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 the Messiah. Mohammed said to spread, through warfare, the rules of Islam. Mohammed became increasingly violent during his career and spent ten years in Medina creating an army to overthrow his homeland, Mecca, after he was ran off by the pagans in 622 A.D. 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 we believe him.

Now, on a side note, Mosab Hassan Yousef (the son of the ruler of Hamas) made the point that there is no moderate Islam in those that truly adhere to their faith, but this does not include the phony Muslims.

The Three Types of Moderate Muslims

The First Type: By phony, we mean those who do not truly believe but identify as Muslim for cultural reasons, maybe out of fear for their life, because their family is Muslim. Does this mean they are "moderate"? No, they will do whatever it takes to continue making their relatives believe that they believe, mostly out of self-preservation. These are they that will encourage their devout brother to commit the atrocities that they themselves do not want to do. Don't expect these so called "moderates" to stop their devout brother, or do anything to save you.

The Second Type: These are those who do not truly understand their own religion. We have seen and heard many testimonies of ex-Muslims who did not understand their own religion. And, we recently saw a video of a man talking about how he, as a Muslim, thought his religion was a peaceful religion, but as he grew to understand Islam and read the Quran, he came to understand that it is not a peaceful religion and that he was actually instructed to kill for Allah. This is a great example of how many Muslims, like Christians who never read their Bible, do not understand their own religion, and how the Imams (preachers of Islam) use the practice of Taqiyya (lying to assist the ascendency of Islam) on their own people and lure them in with promises of peace and love while they hope to bring them in deeper and turn them into devout Muslims who will die for them.

The Third Type: The third type are those who are purposefully and deceitfully practicing Taqiyya (deceit to assist in the ascendency of Islam). This is used by Muslims to placate those who would be a threat until they can either over-power them or defeat them from within by infiltrating their society. The leaders of Islam even use this on new Muslim converts to lure them in, and then slowly lead them to stronger and stronger doctrine as they become devout Muslims.

The Religion of the End-Time in Islamic Prophecy Vs. the Bible

There is ample evidence that the Islamic religion will be the false religion of the End-Time used the by biblical Antichrist. Here's why we 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. Frankly, we believe he was either possessed or given this information and guided to build the Islamic religion by a demon or Satan himself.

Take a look at the following list:

Much of the teaching in Islam comes from the Hadith and Sunnah. It’s not like the Bible where we can just give you a verse to read. As such, the Islamic prophecies listed are from multiple sources. They all come from the Q'uran, Hadith, Sunnah and other Muslim sources -- see references below.

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 Satan and his Antichrist.

Bible: The Antichrist is an unparalleled political, military, and religious leader that will emerge in the last days (Daniel 8:24-25, Daniel 11:40, Revelation 13:7-8). Also known as the "beast from the sea" (Revelation 13:1).

Islam: The Mahdi is an unparalleled political, military, and religious leader that will emerge in the last days.

Bible: the False Prophet is a prominent figure that will emerge in the last days who will support the Antichrist (Revelation 13:11-15, Revelation 19:20, Revelation 20:10).

Islam: the Muslim Messiah (Isa) is a prominent figure that will emerge in the last days to support the Mahdi. He will conduct the worship of the world toward the things of Islam.

Bible: 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 (Revelation 13, Daniel 7:7, Daniel 7:23).

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Messiah (Isa) 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 (Revelation 13:11).

Islam: The Muslim Messiah (Isa) comes bearing the name of the one that the world knows as "The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ." Yet the Muslim Messiah comes to murder all those who do not submit to Islam.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet establish a new world order (Revelation 13:16-17).

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Messiah (Isa) establish a new world order.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet institute new laws for the whole earth (Daniel 7:25, Revelation 13).

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Messiah (Isa) institute Islamic law all over the earth.

Bible: The Antichrist is said to "change the times" (Daniel 7:25).

Islam: It is quite certain that if the Mahdi established Islam all over the earth, he would discontinue the use of YEHOVAH God's weekly Sabbath and annual Holy Days but rather enforce 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.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will both be powerful religious leaders who will attempt to institute a universal world religion (Revelation 13:12).

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Messiah (Isa) 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 (Revelation 13:15).

Islam: Likewise, the Mahdi and the Muslim Messiah (Isa) will execute anyone who does not submit to Islam.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will specifically use beheading as the primary means of execution for non-conformists (Revelation 20:4).

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Messiah (Isa) 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 true Christians as possible (Revelation 13:7, Daniel 7:21, Daniel 11:30).

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Messiah (Isa) hate true Christians and will kill as many as possible until only a few are left (Revelation 20:4).

Bible: The False Prophet is said to do many miracles to deceive as many as possible into supporting the Antichrist (Revelation 13:14).

Islam: The Mahdi himself is said to control the weather and the crops. His face is said to glow. We can also assume that since the Messiah 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 appears again.

Bible: 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 (Revelation 6:2). (In reality, this horse represents the going forth of the gospel message.)

Islam: The Mahdi is described as riding on a white horse (ironically in the same verse in Revelation).

Bible: The Antichrist is said to make a peace treaty (with many) with Israel for seven years (the Confirmation of the Covenant) (Daniel 9:27).

Islam: The Mahdi is said to make a peace treaty through an Israelite (specifically a Levite) for exactly seven years.

Bible: YEHOVAH God the Father will return to defend the regathered people of Israel in the Promised Land from a military attack from a vast coalition of nations led by the Antichrist and the False Prophet (the battle of Armageddon) (Revelation 19:11-16, Daniel 7:9-12 and 22, Daniel 2:34, Daniel 2:44-45).

Islam: The Dajjal, the Islamic Antichrist, will gain a great Israelite following and claim to be the real Messiah and fight against the Mahdi and the Muslim Messiah (Isa).

Bible: The primary warning of the Messiah and the apostle Paul was to warn Christians of the abundance of deceit and deception in the last days (Matthew 24:24, Matthew 24:11, Colossians 2:8, 2 Corinthians 11:3, 2 Thessalonians 2:10, 1 Timothy 4:1-2, Titus 1:16).

Islam: 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.

Bible: 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) (Daniel 2:31-45).

Islam: The empire that succeeded the Roman Empire was the combined Holy Roman Empire in parallel with the Islamic Ottoman Empire.

Bible: When the Antichrist emerges, a system will already exist poised to receive him as a savior and to give allegiance to him. From Revelation 13 and 17, Daniel 11 and events that we know will happen, like the 6th trumpet, we can see how the Bible shows us this is all being orchestrated right now with the "New World Order" and many other things.

Islam: Islam 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 they presume 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.

Understanding how the Muslims of the world will be fooled so badly by the False Prophet and the Antichrist becomes even more mind blowing when we understand how the Catholics of the world will also fall into this same trap.

It is incredibly eye-opening to learn that Catholic prophecy bears a very similar mirror of Biblical prophecy, where the Antichrist will be the "Great Monarch" and will be promoted by an "Angelic Pope" and they will fight the real Messiah (believing he is their antichrist) much the same as with Islamic prophecy. Thus, Catholics will be prone to the same exact deception as Muslims and will think it's their prophecy coming to pass when in fact it's the Bible's Antichrist and False Prophet causing the world to worship the Beast which is essentially Satan.

There are thousands of "prophecies" that have come from Catholics over the last 1,700 years, and many conflict with each other, but there is a central theme of belief in the Great Monarch (which some believe is the second coming of Apollo), and the last Pope (St. Malachy's prophecy of the 112th Pope, who just happens to be the current Pope Francis), and that this last Pope will work with the final emperor (the Great Monarch) to drive apostates out of Islam, Judaism and Christianity to combine all religions into one global religion.

As we've seen with Islamic prophecy, Satan engineered it so closely with Biblical prophecy that it will fool the world into believing it is their prophecy coming to pass when in fact it will be the opposite and will be the Antichrist and False Prophet as told to us in the Bible.

Catholic prophecy mirrors Islamic prophecy of the Muslim Messiah (Isa, the final Islamic prophet) and the Mahdi (the final Pope) and the Dajjal (the real Messiah) when he returns to destroy the enemies of YEHOVAH God.

So, it's a mind blowing revelation to learn how all these things will work together to fool the entire world!

Common belief is that this final Mahdi will appear on the scene at the same time as the final Pope.

Democracy will be seen as a failed system and the world will be ready to accept a socialist monarchy (already happening among the Western World's youth).

A "just war" will take place to drive out the "apostates", which will end up being World War III, the 6th Trumpet of the Bible, and will kill many people. It is very likely that this war is that which causes the world to feel enough fear to put themselves in the hands of the Antichrist, whom the Bible tells us will obtain his kingdom and power by flatteries, and his brilliance with "a mouth speaking great things", and "by peace" will destroy many. In the name of peace he will be fighting wars and subduing the world that did not already give him their allegiance.

 The kingdom of the Antichrist will be made up of ten Islamic kings who give him their power, and these combined powers will subdue the remaining nations of the world. Rome, and the Great Whore (the Vatican) will ride upon this union and the False Prophet will cause the world to worship the Antichrist through miracles done in the sight of men by the power of Satan.

We know from Biblical prophecy that the last ruling "broken, divided" co-empire was and is the Holy Roman/Islamic Ottoman empire, and that it will be the last kingdom ruling when YEHOVAH God and the Messiah return. It is very likely that the Pope will crown the "Great Monarch" as King of the Holy Roman Empire.

Pope Francis has called the world to "get ready for the end time" and appears to believe these Catholic prophecies and may even see himself as the earth's savior and believes himself to be this prophesied Pope. He is the greatest promoter of inter-faithism and is working very hard to bring the world under a One World Religion, and the New World Order. He has had Islamic prayer in the Vatican, has been to prayer in Islamic mosques, and has met with the top Islamic Imam stating the "the meeting itself is the message".

Pope Francis is the "Evangelical Pope" and many Christian churches are following him and going back to their mother (the Great Falling Away). The new Christian church of today is becoming Chrislam and fulfilling prophecy by going back to their "mother of harlots". We are well into, and well on the way to further Biblical fulfillment...

YEHOVAH God and the Messiah Are Coming Soon!

We can see that the whole world will be fooled by the False Prophet and the Antichrist, including the Muslims and the Catholics! 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 "Christianity" and many Christian churches are following this belief. This means that everyone who is fooled by this will think it's perfectly alright to convert to Islam.

Should we therefore hate Muslims because they worship a false god and hate YEHOVAH God and the Messiah? Absolutely not. It is our job to try to help those Muslims who think it's a peaceful religion to understand the truth of it. This does not mean we should be in bed with a false religion by any means, but that we should talk to any who are willing to listen and help them to understand, if at all possible.

Much of the teaching in Islam comes from the Hadith and Sunnah. It's not like the Bible where we can just give you a verse to read. So here are the references for finding this information.

What Will the World of the End-Time Look Like?

The Nations of the End-Time:

The 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 insight of seeing prophecy unfold.

The book of Daniel gives us two symbolic pictures of the end time governments:

In one perspective we see that there will be 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, 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 Persian Empire. The Bible tells us that this final (divided, co-empire) will be used as the world government of the Antichrist and his False Prophet.

The False Prophet will bring the Muslim world together, reviving the Ottoman empire, while the Antichrist will bring in Europe, reviving the Holy Roman empire, and the two will unite them as one. The Bible tells us that the False Prophet will rule the whole world, but it also says that during this last three and a half 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 YEHOVAH God and the Messiah return and that the Holy Roman/Ottoman Empires will be revived and be united in the New World Order that the False Prophet 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. But the word "beast" here is the same word used to describe a "king" in other areas of the Bible, so it very likely refers to the fact that many of the "kings" of the Middle East are killing their own people. The last one hundred 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 three 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 1.8 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! What is obvious is that Islam is the greatest murder machine in the history of the world -- bar none -- with the total more than likely exceeding 250 million dead. "Possibly one-third to one-half or more of all those killed by war or slavery in history can be traced to Islam; and this is just a cursory examination!" (The Greatest Murder Machine in History). Revelation 6:8 clearly defines the Green Horse by naming it “Death”! While plague or pestilence can certainly be the outcome of persecution by those promoting false religion, this is NOT the main thrust of the ride of the Green Horse of Islam.

Islam is Predicted in the Fifth Trumpet:

Briefly then, the various symbols found in Revelation 9:1-12 all point, in no uncertain manner, to that marvel of history -- the empire founded by the FALSE PROPHET Muhammad. This was an empire of vast dimensions, established and extended through an unprecedented combination of stupendous military forces and mighty spiritual energies -- in which the latter was the secret of its amazing potency.

Islam has fed on violence and deceit from its very inception. It has spread like a cancer and has proven to be equally as deadly. Muhammad's expression of delight, "Allahu ahkbar!" (Allah is greater!), became the battle-cry of Islam. The sound of "Allahu ahkbar!" rings out as suicide bombers detonate themselves in the midst of Israeli civilians. It resonates from the lips of Arabs as they plunge knives into the backs of unsuspecting men, women and children. It reverberates not only throughout the cities and towns of Israel, but also across the entire world -- including the United States with the savage attacks on the World Trade Center towers in New York city and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. It sanctifies Islamic murder and mayhem and turns it into divine injunctions from Allah.

Islam is a mystery of the darkest character. It defies explanation along any rational or natural basis. Its origin is so utterly different to that of other empires that we are left with no alternative but to believe that it originated supernaturally. Its growth is just as difficult to explain on natural grounds as its origin. IT IS, WITHOUT A DOUBT, A DESIGNED COUNTERPART OF CHRISTIANITY. Its visible source was in a personal leader who claimed to be the sole representative and prophet of God (more accurately, Allah) -- and in A BOOK that is venerated by its adherents as the word of God. It has, moreover, the supernatural power to inspire millions of stern, fierce and bloodthirsty men with an extraordinary degree of religious fanaticism that quite often rises to a fever-pitch of frenzy. In this way it is without parallel in the history of mankind.

When reading the visions of Revelation 9, two conclusions immediately jump out at you:

1)  The symbols of this chapter correspond with a remarkable degree to the outstanding features of Islam.

2)  There is nothing else in the entire human realm that in anyway answers to these symbols.

The history of Islam is so unique, so supernaturally driven, and corresponds so exactly with the symbols of the fifth and sixth trumpets that commentators of the Futurist school frankly admit this to be so. Some of them have gone so far as to suggest that these visions have a "germinate" or anticipatory fulfillment in Islam. Notice the following --

"Mohammedanism has a superman and a book. It is a satanic imitation of Christianity. It has spread over a great part of the world. At this time it embraces in its curse over 200 millions of souls [as of 2019 -- around 1.8 billion]. Its founder was, without doubt, devil inspired. Mohammed, the fallen star, opened the pit and let loose the darkening power of Satan; and he flooded the eastern part of the christianized earth, and considerable portions of the western also, with doctrines which can justly be termed hellish in their nature and effects."

In the above quotation I think it is more accurate to say that Muhammad was energized by the evil spirit, Abaddon, whom the fallen star represents.

The facts of Islam agree exactly with the meaning of the symbols contained in these visions from the Book of Revelation. The conclusion we must draw from this is that the fulfillment of a prophecy is proven -- the divine nature of the prophecy is established by the coming to pass of the thing prophesied. In light of this, how can commentators, like the one just quoted, recognize and admit that the things prophesied in Revelation 9 have come to pass -- yet refuse to accept them as the fulfillment of the prophecy?

"As a young child," writes Ramon Bennett, "Mohammed was nursed by a Bedouin woman by the name of Halima. In his third and fourth years, 'The child had had numerous fits, which made Halima think he was demon possessed' [Shorrosh, Islam Revealed, p. 48]. Early Moslem tradition records that when Mohammed was about to receive a revelation from Allah: '...he would often fall down on the ground, his body would begin to jerk, his eyes would roll backward, and he would perspire profusely. They would often cover him with a blanket during such episodes' [Morey, The Islamic Invasion, p. 71]. It was while Mohammed was in this 'trance-like' state that he received his 'divine' revelations. 'After the trance, he would rise and proclaim what had been handed down to him' [ibid.]" (The Great Deception: Philistine, p. 43).

Most Western and many Arab biographies of Muhammad believe that he suffered from epilepsy -- but the above clearly indicates that he was under the influence of demons.

Islam is Predicted in Revelation 13:

Revelation 13 indicates that there will be two beasts at the time of the end -- one from the sea and one from the land. While the beast from the land is indeed Islam, the beast from the sea represents the nations under the influence of the Vatican.

In Revelation chapter 9, John saw an army of locusts come out of the smoke that issued out of the bottomless pit. So, what was John talking about when he described the army of locusts? Christians of the past, who knew history better than most of us do, saw this army of locusts as a prophecy of the rise and spread of Islam

The army of locusts came forth from a dark cloud of smoke that rolled out of the bottomless pit. The "bottomless pit" in Greek is abussos, the source of our English word abyss. Some English Bibles simply translate it "the abyss." It is remarkable that Seyed Abul A'ala Maududi, one of Islam's most prominent scholars of the 20th century, used the very word abyss when writing about the beginnings of Islam. In a book mentioned earlier in this article, written to introduce English-speaking people to the basics of Islam, Maududi tells his readers that Muhammad and his message came out of "Arabia -- the Abyss of Darkness." These are his exact words, and they appear in bold print as a sub-heading in his book. It is no mere coincidence that this outstanding Islamic author unwittingly identified Islam's source, in bold print no less, as "the Abyss of Darkness," using the very same word that appears in the book of Revelation.

Why an army of locusts to represent an army of Arabs? About 900 years before John's Revelation, the Prophet Joel had symbolically described an invading, attacking army as a swarm of locusts. Any large, invading army might be compared to a swarm of locusts, but the Arabs and Muhammad have a unique connection to the locust: "In the Bedoween romance Antar, the locust is introduced as the national emblem of the Ishmaelites (one of the ancestors of the Arabs). And it is a remarkable coincidence that Muslim tradition speaks of locusts having dropped into the hands of Muhammad, bearing on their wings this inscription -- 'We are the army of the Great God."'

As we saw a Muslim writer unwittingly connect Islam's beginnings to the Abyss, here we see Muslim writers unwittingly connect Islam to the locusts that come from the Abyss.

In Revelation 13:11 we read --

"Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth [abyss]; and HE HAD TWO HORNS like a lamb and spoke like a dragon."

What is this two-horned governing beast? Among the 6,666 verses of the Qur'an (Koran) -- the sacred book of Islam -- are found the words "Dhul-Qarnayn," which literally mean "He of the two horns." This is found in verses 18:83 to 18:98. It tells the story of the two-horned one who will take the religion of Islam from the East to the people of the utmost West. It will then be determined by the two-horned one whether to show kindness to the people or to punish them -- depending on whether or not they will accept Islam. Here is a direct translation from the Qur'an:

"The Story of Dhul-Qarnayn Allah says to His Prophet,

"(And they ask you) O Muhammad,

"(about Dhul-Qarnayn.) i.e., about his story. We have already mentioned how the disbelievers of Makkah sent word to the People of the Book and asked them for some information with which they could test the Prophet. They (the People of the Book) said, 'Ask him about a man who traveled extensively throughout the earth, and about some young men who nobody knows what they did, and about the Ruh (the soul),' then Surat Al-Kahf was revealed. Dhul-Qarnayn had great Power.

"(Verily, We established him in the earth,) means, 'We have given him great power, so that he had all that kings could have of might, armies, war equipment and siege machinery.' So he had dominion over the east and the west, all countries and their kings submitted to him, and all the nations, Arab and non-Arab, served him. Some of them said he was called Dhul-Qarnayn (the one with two horns) because he reached the two 'Horns' of the sun, east and west, where it rises and where it sets.

"(and We gave him the means of everything.) Ibn 'Abbas, Mujahid, Sa'id bin Jubayr, 'Ikrimah, As-Suddi, Qatadah, Ad-Dahhak and others said, 'This means knowledge.' Qatadah also said,

"(and We gave him the means of everything.) 'The different parts and features of the earth.' Concerning Bilqis, Allah said,

"(she has been given all things) 27:23, meaning all things that monarchs like her are given. Thus too was Dhul-Qarnayn: Allah gave him the means of all things, meaning the means and power to conquer all areas, regions and countries, to defeat enemies, suppress the kings of the earth and humiliate the people of Shirk. He was given all that a man like him would need. And Allah knows best.

"(85. So he followed a way.) (86. Until, when he reached the setting place of the sun, he found it setting in a spring of Hami'ah. And he found near it a people. We said: 'O Dhul-Qarnayn! Either you punish them or treat them with kindness.') (87. He said: 'As for him who does wrong, we shall punish him, and then he will be brought back unto his Lord, Who will punish him with a terrible torment (Hell).') (88. 'But as for him who believes [in Islam] and works righteousness, he shall have the best reward, and we shall speak unto him mild words.')"

We also know that the great symbol of Islam is the crescent moon with two sharp horns. Has the two-horned beast risen up from the earth in the Western nations, including the United States? It is dark, Satanic religion that demands the death of all who will not convert to it. It is a religion of fierce cruelty that also has another symbol -- the scimitar or curved sword. It is a religion of beheading, terrorism and bloody torture.

What We're Waiting For in the Near Future:

The events in Europe are significant enough to show a Western political/religious infrastructure (the Roman Catholic Church) that will be the first beast's kingdom -- a revived Roman Empire that will be closely associated with Islam. It is clear that the Moslem Messiah (Isa) will be the False Prophet of Bible prophecy and will "correct" the interpretations when he arrives from a well in the earth to point all worship to the man of sin (the Antichrist) and bring Islam under him to be his hands and feet of enforcement of his policies. This could include a kind of Shar'ia law and it is clear that beheading is the method of execution the Bible stipulates for those that refuse to worship the beast.

Our main reason for believing this is that we hold the Bible as infallible, written by the holy spirit through the prophets, while everything else is best guesses at most. The Bible has a 100% accuracy to date and we don't see that changing. The Qur'an was derived from its text and that of the Torah, with some other doctrine included as well. There is no doubt external inspiration was involved in its writing too, but NOT from YEHOVAH God or the holy spirit! So we are led to accept what the Bible lays out and view what the Hadiths and Qur'an describe as possibilities that must be put in the context of scripture. When the Mahdi appears suddenly, what he says will be accepted -- even if it is not what Muslim scholars have been interpreting all these years. We do believe Islam will have a large role in the End-Times under the kingdom of the man of sin, and any who refuse will be killed just like any Christians that refuse to worship him. He will be given power by Satan for a period of time and will not be stopped.

It is possible that Islam and Europe will become integrated in some way so that the political/religious structure of a revived Roman Catholic Church will unite with Islam. The power of signs and wonders in today's world should not be underestimated, and these are a big part of the coming landscape. There is also a push for ecumenism in the name of peace among religions.

Our view of the Moslem Messiah (Isa) being the False Prophet requires a future association of Islam with the Vatican, either through ecumenism or a change in Western times and laws to appease Muslim integration into the New World Order.

Do not let them deceive you! Muslims will tell you they believe in the true Messiah, but you can see their version of the Messiah is not at all what YEHOVAH God's record of His Son tells us!
