Muslim Antichrist – explained by Joel Richardson
Daniel 7:7-8 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. (8) I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
Daniel 7:10-14 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. (11) I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. (12) As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. (13) I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. (14) And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
Daniel 7:20-25 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. (21) I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; (22) Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. (23) Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. (24) And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. (25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Antiochus Epiphanes: Type of Antichrist:
Daniel 8:9-12 (9) And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. (10) And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. (11) Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. (12) And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.
Daniel 8:23-27 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. (24) And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. (25) And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. (26) And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. (27) And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king’s business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.
Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (27) And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Antichrist like Antiochus
Ecclesiastes 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Daniel 11:6-16 is a summary
Daniel 11:21-32 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries. (22) And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. (23) And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people. (24) He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time. (25) And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they shall forecast devices against him. (26) Yea, they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall down slain. (27) And both these kings’ hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed. (28) Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land. (29) At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter. (30) For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant. (31) And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate. (32) And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Ezra 4:4-5 Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building, (5) And hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (5) Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? (6) And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. (7) For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (8) And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: (9) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, (10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: (12) That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Revelation 6:1-2 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. (2) And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Revelation 13:1-18 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. (2) 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. (3) And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. (4) And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (5) And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. (6) And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. (7) And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. (8) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (9) If any man have an ear, let him hear. (10) He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. (11) And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. (12) And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (13) And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, (14) And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. (15) And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (16) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: (17) And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (18) Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Pergamos in Modern Turkey
The Gates of Hell are claimed to be found by Francesco D’Andria, professor of classic archaeology at the University of Salento. D’Andria presented his findings at a March conference on Italian archeology in Istanbul, Turkey. According to the Discovery.com website, D’Andria found “Pluto’s Gate” so named in Greco-Roman mythology as the “gate to hell” in Hierapolis, an ancient city located in southwestern Turkey. It is known for its mysterious vapor that kills anyone entering the cave, which is considered by ancient tradition as the gate to hell. Even today, birds and other animals wandering into the entrance die immediately. This discovery and its location may contain some confirming clues from Biblical prophecy.
Hierapolis was known for its hot springs and became part of Pergamon in 190 BC. When the Apostle Paul ministered in Ephesus, a church was founded there and it was not far from the church in Laodicia. It is said that the Apostle Phillip was martyred there. A study of ancient maps of Turkey reveals that Magog, Gomer, Togarmah, Meshech and Tubal are all regions of modern Turkey and many of them reside in the territories of the former Assyrian Empire. We know that Ezekiel 38 and 39 mention Gog of Magog leading a coalition of currently Islamic/Arab nations against Israel in a colossal end time battle. Many scholars now believe that Gog is who Christians call the “antichrist.”
We also know that the “antichrist” is alluded to as the Assyrian in Isaiah 10:5,10:24,14:25, 19:23, 30:31, 31:8, Micah 5:5-6, and Hosea 11:5. It is quite possible that the antichrist/the Assyrian will arise from what is now Turkey. It is also interesting that Jesus Christ identifies modern Turkey as the seat of Satan. In Revelation 2:12-13, Jesus says, “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write: These things says he which has the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where you dwell, even where Satan’s seat is: and you hold fast my name, and have not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells.”
Modern Turkey plays a tremendous role in end time prophecy. Jesus said the seat of Satan is in Pergamos, which is located in modern Turkey. Ezekiel speaks of Gog of Magog leading an end time force against Israel, which includes Persia (Iran), Libya and Ethiopia (Sudan) and other areas of Turkey and the former Assyrian Empire. These are all currently Islamic and Arab states who are specifically named as coming against Israel and many originate out of parts of Turkey. Now we have a news story claiming that the gates of hell have been discovered not terribly far from the seat of Satan. Symbolic? Mythical? Literal? All three? Irrespective, these findings in Turkey could be clues to the end times scenario.
End Time Beheadings and Revelation 20:4:
Some Christians and ex-Muslims see a direct correlation between Islam and the Book of Revelation about the “end times”. It is interesting to note that Revelation 20:4 tells that the faithful Believers in Jesus will be beheaded. One only has to look at militant Islam today to make this correlation. Islam is the only religion that commands this barbaric custom of beheading. They do this everywhere today to those they call “infidels”. The Qur’an commands in Surah 47:4 – “When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield, strike off their heads…” To fundamental Muslims, the entire world including your own home is their “battlefield”.
It is all a war of spiritual forces. The god Allah is opposing the God of Israel everywhere in the world today. Allah will be defeated in the end. And so will his millions of mindless followers he controls.
Muslim Prophecy speaks of the coming time of the Great Caliphate, Third Jihad, and return of the Twelfth Imam (Mahdi), who is supposed to emerge from a well (yes a hole in the ground). According to Shiites, the 12th imam disappeared as a child in the year 941 A.D. This Imam is supposed to subjugate the world for Islam. The Iranian President Ahmadinejad is on record as stating he believes he is to have a personal role in ushering in the age of the Mahdi. In a Nov. 16, 2005, speech in Tehran, he said he sees his main mission in life as to “pave the path for the glorious reappearance of Imam Mahdi, may Allah hasten his reappearance.” After Ahmadinejad spoke to the United Nations, in September 2005, he told Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli in Tehran, in a videotaped discussion, about a strange, paranormal experience he had while speaking.
“Be not fond of the dull smoke-colored light from hell.” – the Tibetan Book of the Dead
Ahmadinejad recounted how he found himself bathed in light throughout the speech. But this wasn’t the light directed at the podium by the U.N. and television cameras. It was, he said, a light from heaven.
This 12th Imam, named Muhammed al-Mahdi, is supposed to return to earth, presumably reuniting the Sunni and Shi’a factions of Islam by his presence. The prophesied destruction of Israel in the end times is supposed to originate in modern Khorasan, located in northeast Iran. To a Christian, a world dominated by fanatical Muslims with a charismatic leader who attempts the destruction of Israel, and causes all to bow down to this cruel, intolerant, demanding and mean Allah, sounds very much like the predicted anti-Christ who will behead those who do not bow down to his worldwide religion.
It is finally donning on most educated Christians that the coming Antichrist will not be the Catholic pope who many have falsely maligned for years. All signs point to a charismatic Muslim. Many Christians are on the lookout for a charismatic Muslim leader like al-Mahdi, who together with a fake Jesus (who denies the Christian truths just as Islam does) will begin to subjugate the world to Islam by great miracles, uniting Muslim fanatics, and blackmailing countries with mideast oil and nuclear weapons. These two will confuse and mislead many of even the Christian “very elect”. The key to this identity of Antichrist in Christian Scripture lies in 1 John 2:22. More about him is spoken of in both Daniel and in Revelation. It is no coincidence that of all the religions in the world, only Islam has a “holy” book that attacks the deity of Jesus, lies that God has no Son, and lies about the Trinity (falsely saying Christians believe it as: Father, Son and Mary). According to Daniel 11:37, this Antichrist will also have no “desire of women”, just as Islam does today. Women in Islam are second-rate. Most are living a life of misery and restrictions that western women would be unable to fathom. A woman’s testimony is only as good as one half of a man’s in Islamic courts, women must pray behind man in a mosque, and their divorce rights are nearly non-existing. A Muslim woman can be divorced and left out on the street just by a husband saying; “I divorce you” three times. The Muslim propensity to behead infidels is also another indicator from Scripture (Revelation 20:4) that the coming Antichrist will be a Muslim.
Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. Daniel 11:37
In 2008, Ali Larijani, the chairman and speaker of the Iranian Parliament quoted Imam Muhammad Baqir, a famous Muslim scholar, as saying, “there must be bloodshed and jihad to establish Imam Mahdi’s rule.” Ayatollah Ibrahim al Amini, professor at the Religious Learning Center at Qom affirms Larijani when he states, “The Mahdi will offer the religion of Islam to the Jews and Christians; if they accept it they will be spared, otherwise they will be killed.”
