A Jewish Islamic? There is no such thing. Once you become Muslim, you are Islamic. Are there Muslims who descend from the Jews? Absolutely, but they
are no longer identified as Jewish.
This is my take on it from the hadiths themselves. The Mahdi is supposed to be from Syria. But this is my theory, take it or leave it, up to you.
The Bible gives the number of the beast, the number of a man. So looking in the Bible for more clues, there are two more references. 666 occurs twice
more, one is the number of people counted in the census with Abimelek. That sounds reasonable as counting a man. But the next reference is the number
of talents of gold received by Solomon. Because the Bible explains that the number of the beast is attached to buying and selling, it then relates to
money. So look at Solomon to give you the clues.
I thought when reading this, that there had to be an imitation of Solomon at some point in time, or future point. We know that John was writing to the
seven churches in Asia, warning them of the anti-Christ and the beast. Why did he not say to all churches? These churches are in what we know is
Turkey today. So why the warning to churches in Turkey? This is where the imitation of Solomon comes in.
Suleiman the Magnificent was the greatest sultan of the Ottoman Empire.
The Bible description
Revelation 13 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.
Suleiman was the tenth Ottoman caliph.
Revelation 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour
with the beast.
The anti-Christ had not come yet, but would soon appear to the churches in Turkey. Suleiman was born in a sea side town, he rose up out of the sea.
But what does this have to do with money? Suleiman issued coins with his name and image and no one could buy or sell in his kingdom without these
Suleiman believed the whole world was to be Islamic and that it was a gift to him from Allah. He married Roxelana, a Ukrainian woman when it was still
part of Poland. She was taken captive and sold to his harem. Her father was an Eastern Orthodox priest, but she was known for being controlling and
powerful over Suleiman.
Muslims want to revive the Ottoman Empire. Suleiman died of old age, not in a battle. When people read the KJV, they don't realize it was written in
Elizabethan language, the same language Shakespeare used. That is why they assume William Shakespeare wrote it, but it was impossible because he was
not a part of James' court. The history of the writers prove who translated it. But with the understanding of Elizabethan English we get an idea.
To wound someone means you have offended them.
13 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
