Let's see if this stands up to scrutiny then, :-) .
When you compare Islamic and Biblical Eschatology you find extremely similar events described except that in Islam the Muslims are doing the things
that are described as the bad guys in the Bible.
List the 'extremely similar' events please.
100% of these nations are Muslim countries today.
So? You're assuming the end times are now. Granted many may think so, but this does not mean it is. Many also though it at 999 AD.
What about approx 300 years after Jesus death? Constantine made the empire christian. meaning, all those lands you speak about where christian then.
Going by your hypothesis, back then we coulda said the same about christianity. So, whether many nations are one religion at this moment, indicates
The Antichrist is called the Assyrian, Prince of Tyre, King of Babylon, Pharaoh of Egypt, Gog. The KJV in Isaiah call his master , Lucifer. In other
versions he's the Shining One, Son of the dawn. In Hebrew he's Helel Ben Shacker.. In Arabic that's Crescent Moon and Morning Star (symbol of
The Muslims will call Antichrist: Imam al Mahdi.
oh really? Hmm. Who has told you of this? Firstly, the anti-christ in Islam will be called Dajjal. And he is described in great detail.
Secondly. Imam Mahdi is to be the saviour of Islam. To deliver them from Roman Christianity. Now, just because a person is not muslim, or is a
Christian, doe snot mean Imam Mahdi is the anti-christ. In fact, it makes no sense at all. Imam Mahdi will lead a war, which will only end when Jesus
About the crescent moon & star. you are alluding, that is means the anti-christ. Well, there is no proof of that. The symbol for Islam was adopted
properly with the Ottoman empire, around 1400 AD. It has roots dating back many 1000's of years, probably to celestial meanings. It doesn't follow
it is anything to do with any anti-christ. It predates all that stuff considerably.
In almost every OT book, there's End Time prophecy of some nations getting judged. They are always the same ones.. all of them Muslim.
Yes, if it came now. However 1700 years ago it would be Roman Christian. you have no way of knowing when the end will come, so current religious
demographics mean little. Scaremongering aside. Unless of course, you have intimate knowledge of the end. :-) .
What is wrote here is largely inaccurate, and is conjecture, every little bit of stuff that ostracises another group, leads to more negative views,
and is becoming a self-fullfilling prophecy.
And before anyone starts about Islamic terrorists. Just remember, what is a terrorist. In this sick society, we in the west think it's acceptable to
bomb countries 1000's of miles away, killing countless innocents. Some governments may even kill their own people apparently. and use that as a
platform to kill countless hundreds of thousands. Perhaps the real anti-christ is far closer to home than we realise, or the media gives us a chance
to think about. We should stay of the flouride in our toothpaste, and try to be more objective. Imo, of course. :-).
