The religion of the end time in bible prophecy
The religion of the end time will be one where the false prophetwill deceive the whole world and cause the world to worship theAntichrist by doing miracles such as pulling fire from the sky. Thisreligion already exists but will be made universal by the power giventhe Antichrist and the false prophet by the devil. The bible doesn'tspecifically tells us what that religion will be called, but we candetermine what it will be by looking at the facts. The world ispretty much dominated by Christianity and Islam (over half of theworlds population combined). While Hinduism comes in a close third,it doesn't look like it will matter in the end time.
Christianity today is full of churches proclaiming that allreligions worship the same God and therefore we should embrace them.The Catholic church promotes that idea with Interfaith doctrine andgoes as far as to state in the Catechism that the Muslims worship thesame God as Christianity and therefore will enjoy the same salvationequally. This means that they think it doesn't matter if you're aChristian or a Muslim and that you can find salvation through eitherreligion.
The Muslims, on the other hand, haveno such belief. In fact, Muslim doctrine teaches that Jesus is just aprophet, not the manifestation of God in the flesh, and that He willreturn at the end time to teach Christians the Muslim way and convertthem. The prophecies of the bible and the Muslim propheciesconcerning the Antichrist (the Muslim Mahdi) and the false prophet(the Muslim Jesus) mirror each other but the good guys of Islam arethe bad guys of the bible. This is a very good indication that theAntichrist will rise as the Mahdi of Islam and will unite theChristian world with him via the false prophet and create a globalIslamic religion. The bible tells us that this end time religion willbe forced upon people or they will be killed if they refuse. TheMuslim prophecies tell us that the Muslims will kill any who won'tconvert to Islam.
The bible tells us that the world willbe fooled by the false prophet performing miracles in the sight ofmen, like pulling fire from the sky. The false prophet will seem toeveryone to have Godly power and will fool everyone into worshipingthe Antichrist.
Is Islam really a true religion worshiping the same God asChristianity?
I had to ask myself this question: who is the God of Islam? Is it really the same God that Abrahamworshiped as they want us to believe?
It is asserted by Muslims that the Meccan Arabs are descendents ofIshmael, the son of Abraham. They also claim that Ishmael settled inMecca where he, along with Abraham, built the Kabah and passed on thereligion of the true God to his offspring. It is believed thatthroughout time the Ishmaelites perverted the worship of the trueGod, not by abandoning their belief in him, but by adding other godsin their worship, thus perverting the religion of the God of theirfather Ishmael. It is actually provable that this is not true,as I will show you.
In the Old Testament, near Israel's beginnings, worship of a falseGod called Baal began, and consisted of worshiping the heavenlybodies, of which the moon is the largest in the sky. TheBiblical and historical evidence shows that the Moabites worshipedBaal. The pre-Islamic and Muslim sources show (a) that the Meccanstook over the idol Hubal from the Moabites and (b) that Allah andHubal are actually identical. Thus, whether the Meccans areIshmaelites or not, the evidence is still strong and sufficient toconclude that Muhammad's Allah is actually Hubal, i.e., the Baal ofthe Moabites and thus not the God of the Bible. Muhammad incorporatedthe characteristics and names of various other gods into his newmonotheistic message about Allah, but he apparently started theconstruction of Allah with Hubal, the chief god of the Meccans.
Thepre-Islam pagan Arabs worshipped the Moon-god Allah by praying towardMecca several times a day; making a pilgrimage to Mecca; runningaround the temple of the Moon-god called the Kabah; kissing the blackstone; killing an animal in sacrifice to the Moon-god; throwingstones at the devil; fasting for the month which begins and ends withthe crescent moon; giving alms to the poor, etc.
If you haveread the news in recent months, you know that modern day Muslimspractice these very rituals.
The Muslims are worshiping the same false god that people havebeen worshiping since early times as far back as Israel's beginnings.
Most importantly, Muslims say you don’t need tobelieve in Jesus Christ to be saved! Muslims will admit thatJesus Christ was a true prophet, but deny that He was the Messiah(although some Western Muslims will say He was anointed), they willdeny that He was God manifested in the flesh as of the Son of God(John 1:14), and they will deny that He died on the cross and roseagain. Does that make sense? Absolutely not. Thatbelief cannot be truth because Jesus Christ Himself said He was theMessiah! John 4:26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak untothee am he. That would make Him a false prophet accordingto the Muslim beliefs!
The word Islam means "submission". Not in thesense of submission to God, but in the sense of making everyonesubmit to the rule of Islam. Islam is about subduing the worldand making it submit. The Muslims believe that Mohammed is theexemplar of right conduct. They aspire to be like him in thesame manner that Christians aspire to be like Jesus. Mohammedsaid to spread, through warfare, the rules of Islam. Mohammedbecame increasingly violent during his career and spent 10 years inMedina creating an army to overthrow his homeland, Mecca, after hewas ran off by the pagans in 622 AD. He killed thousands ofpeople and subdued Arabia through war. Muslims are encouragedto commit acts of heroism in combat. They are promised thatthose who kill and are killed will be rewarded with paradise. This is the basis for suicide bombers. They believe that sincethey are killing while they are killed that the sin of suicide iscovered by the martyrdom of their action and, as such, they will berewarded in heaven. Islam is a religion of political rule, asystem of government. It is not about a personal relationshipwith Allah, it is about bringing the world under submission to itsrule.
The Quran (Koran) was written over time during the life ofMohammed. He started as a peaceful man, but as time went on hechanged many of his values. As he became increasingly violent,his writings matched his attitude. The correct interpretationof the Quran is to take any conflict in doctrine, of which there is awhole lot, and replace an older verse with the latest one,supplanting it's meaning with the more recent version in a processcalled abrogation. The problem is that the Quran is compiledfrom the longest Sura to the shortest, so it's nearly impossible toknow which conflicting verse to believe or obey. The Muslimshave a whole committee of scholars to interpret the Quran and decidewhich verses were written first and the succession of them to thelast. Sounds very confusing to me...
If you think Islam is a religion of peace, as they claim, justlook 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 workingtoward their goal of subduing the world. Islam is a religion ofpeace only when they have conquered the world and subjected it to therule of Islam. Also, if the son of the ruler of Hamas says that Islamhas no moderates, then I believe him.
Do they really expect us to believe they worship the same God thatChristians do?
The religion of the end time in Islamic prophecy vs the bible
There is ample evidence thatthe Islamic religion will be the false religion of the End Time usedthe by biblical Antichrist. Here's why I think so:
The Islamic/Muslim propheciesare a parallel but opposite mirror of biblical prophecy concerningthe End Time. The Muslim good guys are the bible's bad guys.
The Muslim prophecies listedhere are found in the Quran and the Sunnah. Some believe Mohammed waspossessed by a demon who gave him these parallel prophecies, but itcould simply be that he had a copy of the book of Revelation andpatterned this all after the bible so as to look authentic.Personally, I believe he was either possessed or given thisinformation and guided to build the Islamic religion by a demon orthe devil himself.
Take a look at the followinglist:
Bible: The Antichrist is an unparalleled political, military, and religious leader that will emerge in the last days.
Islam: The Mahdi is an unparalleled political, military, and religious leader that will emerge in the last days.
Bible: the False Prophet is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge in the last days who will support the Antichrist.
Islam: the Muslim Jesus is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge in the last days to support the Mahdi.
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.
Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus 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.
Islam: The Muslim Jesus comes bearing the name of the one that the world knows as 'The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ." Yet the Muslim Jesus comes to murder all those who do not submit to Islam.
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet establish a new world order.
Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus establish a new world order.
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet institute new laws for the whole earth.
Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus institute Islamic law all over the earth.
Bible: The Antichrist is said to "change the times."
Islam: It is quite certain that if the Mahdi established Islam all over the earth, he would discontinue the use of Saturday and Sunday as the weekend for days of rest but rather 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.
Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus 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.
Islam: Likewise, the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus 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.
Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus 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 Jews (and Christians) as possible.
Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will kill as many Jews as possible until only a few are left hiding behind rocks and trees.
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will attack to conquer and seize Jerusalem (the battle of Armageddon).
Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will attack to reconquer and seize Jerusalem for Islam.
Bible: The Antichrist will set himself up in the Jewish Temple as his seat of authority (the abomination of desolation).
Islam: The Mahdi will establish the Islamic caliphate from Jerusalem.
Bible: The False Prophet is said to do many miracles to deceive as many as possible into supporting the Antichrist.
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 Jesus 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 returns.
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.
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.
Islam: The Mahdi is said to make a peace treaty through a Jew (specifically a Levite) for exactly seven years.
Bible: Jesus the Jewish Messiah will return to defend the Jews in Israel from a military attack from a vast coalition of nations led by the Antichrist and the False Prophet (the battle of Armageddon).
Islam: The Dajjal, the Islamic Antichrist, will gain a great Jewish following and claim to be Jesus Christ and fight against the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus.
Bible: The antichrist spirit specifically denies the most unique and central doctrines of Christianity, namely the divinity of Jesus, the incarnation of God in the flesh, and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the Cross.
Islam: Islam doctrinally and spiritually specifically denies the most unique and central doctrines of Christianity, namely the divinity of Jesus, the incarnation of God in the flesh, and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the Cross.
Bible: The primary warning of Jesus and the Apostle Paul was to warn Christians of the abundance of deceit and deception in the last days.
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.
Islam: The empire that succeeded the Roman/Byzantine 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.
Islam is already the second largest religion and will at present growth rates become the largest religion within a few decades. 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 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.
We can see that thewhole world will be fooled by the false prophet and the Antichrist,including the Muslims. The Muslims will believe it is their Mahdi,while the rest of the world will follow the interfaith movement intobelieving that being a Muslim is the same as Christianity in that weall worship the same God and therefore will enjoy the same salvation.As stated, the Catholic church has already included Islam as part ofGod's people and many Christian churches are following this belief.This means that everyone who is fooled by this will think it'sperfectly ok to convert to Islam.
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 andsince we live in a time where history proves what those prophecieswere, we have the unique pleasure of seeing prophecy unfold.
The book of Daniel gives us two symbolic pictures of the end timegovernments.
In one perspective we see that there will be 4 kingdoms in existence at the end time and they will exist when Jesus returns, conquers them, and sets up His kingdom on the earth. These kingdoms mentioned specifically are Britain, Russia, Germany, and 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, then the Greek empire, then the Roman, and finally the Holy Roman / 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 Roman Empire.
The bible tells us that this final(divided, co-empire) will be used as the world government of theAntichrist and his false prophet. The Antichrist will bring theMuslim world together, reviving the Ottoman empire, while the falseprophet will bring in Europe, reviving the Holy Roman empire, and thetwo will unite them as one. The bible tells us that the Antichristwill rule the whole world, but it also says that during this last 3.5years 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 areawhich is now Jordan is one that is specifically mentioned to “escapeout of his hand”, among others), but he will rule the lastworld dominating empire.
The bible tells us that some of thenations that exist today will exist when Jesus returns and that theHoly Roman / Ottoman Empires will be revived and be united in the NewWorld Order that the Antichrist will use to rule the world.
Islam is predicted in the Fourth Seal of Revelation.
In Revelation 6:1-8 and Zechariah6:1-8, we're given a warning of the spirits that will be controllingthe world in the last days. The pale/green horse of Revelation andthe grisled and bay horses of Zechariah tell us about the spirit ofIslam.
The pale horse went south and Deathsat on him and Hell followed him and he was given power to kill withthe sword and hunger and the beasts of the world. The southernhemisphere contains most of the poverty stricken nations. War,crime, revolution, hunger and beasts of the earth are more prominentin the more backward nations of the third world. The last 100years have seen more death than the entire history of man (wars,abortions, etc.) The passage in Zechariah splits the pale/greenhorse in two; into the grisled and bay horses. That makes thisprophecy easier to understand in that it has two components: Islamand Death. A very interesting thing about this horse is thatthe meaning of the original Greek word is interpreted as “pale”in the King James Bible, but the word chloros (khlo-ros'); also meansgreenish, or pale green. This word (chloros) isalso used in 3 other places in the bible: Mark 6:39, Revelation 8:7and Revelation 9:4. In all three of these other places it wasinterpreted correctly as green. This horse was alsogiven power over the fourth part of the earth. Since we knowthese horses are spirits, it is very, very interesting that the colorof Islam is green (their flags, etc.), and that there are 1.48billion Muslims (Islam followers) in the world today. That’salmost exactly one fourth of the world population. This horsewent south; and 96.5% of the world’s Muslims are in thesouthern hemisphere, in Africa and Southern Asia. Can Islam bedefined as “Death”? I’ve seen arguments thatthe terrorists are only the “radicals” and poor Muslimsbeing recruited, but if you look at the history of the men thathijacked the planes on 9/11, they came from middle class and wealthyfamilies. The attacks that are happening everywhere, thesuicide bombings, the masses of Muslims chanting, “Death toIsrael, death to America”, are not only the poor and radical,it is the mindset of Islam as a whole. Look at what happenedrecently in Palestine. They knowingly elected a terroristorganization into their government! And, given what we know aboutIslam and how it will be used by the Antichrist, the term “death”here may be referring to the “second death” of Revelationwhere those that are not saved come before God on judgment day.
What we're waiting for in the near future
The event we're looking forright now, that could happen very soon, is the Confirmation of theCovenant. The confirmation of the covenant is this: there willbe an international agreement to confirm the status of Jerusalem andthe permanent borders of Israel. These things are being fought overright now with the Palestinians. The bible says that the Antichristwill confirm the covenant along with many others for 7 years. Thisevent will be the beginning of the last 7 years of Daniels 490 years.It may be hard to identify the Antichrist at that time because hewill be just one of many.
Approximately 8 months (.7 years) after the Confirmation of theCovenant, the Antichrist will begin to take over the world.
The Antichrist and the false prophet will team up around thistime.
The Jewish temple will be rebuilt and animal sacrifices will beresumed by the Jews.
Jerusalem will be “surrounded by armies”, which islikely a picture of it being policed by UN and/or other forces toforce peace in the Middle East.
In the midst of this last 7 years (three and one half years in),the Antichrist will causethe animal sacrifices being performed in the rebuilt temple to cease,and will cause the “abomination of desolation” by eitherclaiming to be God or acting in the place of God. That is when wewill definitely know who he is.
The false prophet will cause the world to worship the Antichrist.This will be made possible by the power given him by the devilhimself. He will perform miracles before the world, like pulling firefrom the sky.
God's two witnesses will begin their prophecy at this time. Theywill not be able to be killed for the whole 3.5 years but will bekilled at the very end.
The bible tells us that they (theworld) shall say, “peace and safety”. This is the call ofthe New World Order. The Antichrist will come in the name of peace totake over the world, and the bible says that the people of the worldwill be thinking they've finally made it, reveling and partying,proclaiming that mankind has finally done it and brought peace to theworld!
The Antichrist will implement what's called the mark of the beast.It will very likely be a RFID type of system. They can put a chipunder your skin today and they even have a tattoo ink that is RFIDcapable, so maybe that will be utilized. What's certain is that thiswill be forced upon all people and you won't be able to get a job,buy food, go to the doctor, have a bank account, or pretty much haveany way to “buy or sell” unless you submit. This willundoubtedly come with some sort of oath or pledge of allegiance tothe Antichrist and his government. It may even mean conversion toIslam. This will also be a superhighway straight to hell. Anyperson who takes the mark of the beast is condemned by God. It willbe a horrible time for the people who worship the one true God, JesusChrist. This is what is termed as the Great Tribulation.
The Antichrist will “cause craft to prosper”. He will“understand dark sentences”. There will very likely bemany people who will start to use dark and evil power to performsorcery and witchcraft.
So, will Islam rule the world?
According to the prophecies of the bible, I believe it will. Ifyou want more detailed and in-depth information, please go towww.prophecyandtruth.comand read chapters 7, 8 and 10.
We must be prepared and must not be fooled!
Please go to www.prophecyandtruth.comand read chapters 7, 8 and 10.
Tointroduce myself, my name is Dan Nordquist. I'm a Born AgainChristian who loves truth and I have spent many hours and daysstudying the Word of God. I have no "credentials"given me by men, I am just a sinner saved by the grace of God who hasbeen given a love for the truth. I have studied the works ofmany other men and I've taken what I've found to follow the Word anddiscarded that which I've found does not follow precisely with theBible. I wrote this book by compiling my notes into a readableformat in order to share what I have learned with anyone who willread it. I am a family man, with a wonderful wife, who I canonly say is a precious gift from God, and we are blessed with fourchildren.
Since I love prophecy and how it all ties into thecurrent times and events of the world, and most people seem to be asinterested as I am, I’m writing this book to summarize all I’velearned about biblical prophecy and help others understand the truthof God’s Word. I don’t take the credit for anythingin this book. I have studied a few different people’sideas on prophecy and biblical theology, and many of the words inthis book are taken right out of other men’s mouths, but thebible is the ultimate authority on truth so we’ll be studyingthe words of God more than anything.
I must stress, right at the start here, that fulfilledprophecy cannot be fully realized for what it is until it hashappened. There are many biblical prophecies that have alreadycome to pass, but there are many that are coming to pass right now. We cannot know for sure what we’re seeing until the events havecome to conclusion. That being said, there is so muchcompelling evidence and so many clues that it’s almostimpossible not to see it for what it is today. Prophecy iscoming to pass right before our eyes and today we are living in thetimes that God spent about 25% of the words in the bible to tell usabout. He wanted us to know when the time was right, at thetime of the end, and we are there!
The second book of this book, however, is takendirectly from the bible and there is no guesswork involved at all. God is very specific about truth and has written His Word for us tounderstand fully if we love the truth and seek it with all ourheart. And, the most important thing to remember is:Understanding prophecy is not important to your salvation, butunderstanding the truth is the most important thing in the world!
The second book of this little book is the book I wishI had when I began my journey with God. There are so manyreligions out there and they all teach something different, even the“Christian” churches can teach some significantdifferences even though they profess to believe the same thing. What is the truth? We will explore that in this little book.
Much of the text in this book will be direct quotes from the Biblewith explanations and commentary to help the reader understand themeaning. The Bible is the only real truth, so we should neverstray from its pages. While I research with several versions ofthe Bible and use Greek/Hebrew dictionaries, I use the King JamesVersion of the Bible for accuracy and truth. Some people don’trealize just how many changes are made in the translations of some ofthe different Bible versions that completely change the meaning ofGod’s Word and even though they may be easier to understand,they are not accurate. The King James Bible is the mostaccurate translation we have, period. Many people think thatthe King James Bible is so far from the original text that it cannotbe accurate, but the opposite is the reality. It is only twosteps from the original text. The original Old Testament Hebrewwas translated into what is called the Masoretic Text by agroup of Jews known as the Masoretes and that text was used to createthe English translation. The New Testament is translated intoEnglish based on the Textus Receptus which was compiled byDutch Catholic scholar Desiderius Erasmus. While some peopleargue that this is still not good enough, the important thing toremember is that God preserved His word for us and He didn't give usa book that we cannot understand. 2 Tim 3:16 All scriptureis given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, forreproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
I hope that this little book will inspire readers to do what I didwhen I had so many questions and got so many different answers. I started reading the Bible for myself! I began by reading theentire New Testament from front to back, then moving to the OldTestament. I definitely don’t want you to take my wordfor anything said in this little book. But I don’t wantyou to go out and take another man’s word for it either! Trust in the Word and ONLY in the Word of God! Finding aminister or pastor who knows God is very important, but make sure heis teaching the truth! I only say this because I trusted apastor who misled me and did not teach the truth. I’mjust grateful that God showed me His truth! It could have meantterrible consequences for me if I had not sought out God and Histruth on my own.
My recommendation for reading this little book is to have yourBible out and read the passages that I quote from as you read throughthese pages.
For the best reading experience, please read thisbook in order. There are some subjects that are built upon fromprevious chapters, so if you skip around it might not make as muchsense to you as it would otherwise. Enjoy!
