The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist

Content by Joel Richardson

The True Christ is a Warrior

So, what is the “Day of the Lord”?  In the Jewish Apocalyptic worldview, it is the central theme.  For Christians, this is the return of Jesus. Every single verse in the Bible that speaks of nations invading Israel speaks of Middle Eastern nations – not European nations.

Whose blood was Jesus’ robe soaked in?  It’s the blood of his enemies! Jesus is often portrayed as a Caucasian hippie, but in the book of Revelation, He is stomping on His enemies like grapes!

Jesus is coming back to establish a kingdom on the earth.  So many people apply the Bible to themselves; they spiritualize it, but these passages are literal.

What about Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream? The traditional view believes that it’s Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome.

But in the Bible, it does not say, “Rome.” This final kingdom will destroy Middle Eastern kingdoms. Look at a map. Rome was a European empire, not a Middle Eastern empire.

Daniel, the Romans, and the Russians?

In Daniel 9 – “the people of the prince to come” – are Roman, right?  No. The ethnic composition of the Roman legions was provincial – they were Middle Eastern: Syrian and Arab.

Is Russia involved? Does anti-Christ come from Russia?  No. The reference to the “north” is to Turkey. I believe the anti-Christ will come from Turkey.

Rosh is Hebrew for “chief”, but Americans hear “rosh” and think Russia!

The Nature of the Islamic Antichrist

Others also ask, “Is Anti-Christ gay?” “He rejects the desire of women, right?”

No. Instead, he rejects the God of his fathers, Yahweh, but he also rejects the “desire of women” who is Messiah, but He does honor a god of fortresses, a god of war. The Islamic god is a war god.

“Will the Anti-Christ claim to be God?” Yes. He will sit in the temple of God in Jerusalem, and he will proclaim himself to be superior to the God of the Temple.

The Empire of the Islamic Antichrist

In 1923, the Caliphate was abolished. But, Muslims around the world are calling for the revival of the Caliphate.

The Ottoman Empire is going to have a comeback! 

End-Times Parallels between Christianity and Islam

Christianity has one end-time good guy, Jesus, and two end-time bad guys, the Antichrist and the False Prophet.

Islam has one end-time bad guy, the False Jewish Messiah, and two end-time good guys, the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus.

Mahdi rules for seven years: Islam

The Antichrist will rule for seven years: Christianity

Mahdi’s seat is on the temple mount: Islam

The Antichrist’s seat is on the temple mount: Christianity
