Rather than a specific prophecy, I have been leaning towards a new take on some old Biblical prophecy. For many years students of Bible prophecy
have been waiting for a world empire to be formed centered on europe, since the Bible indicates that the Roman empire will be reborn and the
antichrist will be the head of this new empire. Most have thought the antichrist would advertise himself as kind of a smarmy new ager, with mass
appeal to the new agers and environmentalists in europe. However the demographic trends in europe indicate that europe will be largely Islamic within
a single generation or so.
I therefore propose that the antichrist will in fact be the caliph of europe! There are a lot of things that fit this scenario quite nicely. His
hatred of Jews and christians fit this scenario like a glove. The fact that he deals treacherously and conquers through peace, as prophesied in
Daniel, fits with the primary attack plan of Islam first started by Mohammed himself, in his dealings with Mecca. In this way he will be crowned by
the Roman Catholic church, but in the end destroy the church.
From Daniel 11 we have this description of the antichrist,
36 "The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He
will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. 37 He will show no regard for the gods of his
fathers or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. 38 Instead of them, he will honor a god of
fortresses; a god unknown to his fathers he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. 39 He will attack the mightiest
fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will
distribute the land at a price. [e]
The god of fortresses could well be Allah. The Koran says much about plunder and warfare since this was one of Mohammed's chief obsessions. Of
course the Islamics await their great caliph the Imam Mahdi. The antichrist could well fill this role. Based on this theory we should expect that
the Muslims will ultimately win the war on terror. This could easily happen once the liberals regain control in America and continue the policy of
apeasement that served them so well in Vietnam. Moreover the major nuclear powers might well destroy each other prior to all this leaving the Muslims
victorious by default.
Consider also another key prophecy that has Bible scholars wondering. How will Israel manage to rebuild the temple on a Muslim holy site? The temple
must be rebuilt and functioning during the last 7 years of tribulation. What if the Imam Mahdi, showing his 'peace loving' ways, allows the Jews to
rebuild the temple in exchange for certain concessions to guarantee the peace? Since the Mahdi's word is law in Islam, the majority of Muslims might
well accept this deception. He would look like a genius, being a great Muslim seeming to give Israel this great concession and 'solving' the Middle
East problem. How else could this be done without a Muslim firestorm?
