The Antichrist Empire will be a revived Islamic Empire

Here are some thoughts that I have run into while studying the Holy Bible and asking the Holy Spirit for understanding. I suggest searching the Scriptures and testing this to see if it indeed holds up. I do not claim to be at all thorough on this subject but I do believe that there is something here. Glad to hear feedback.

I remember saying to myself in 2006 that although all false religions are satanic, that satan formed his perfect false religious system in Islam. The whole religion from its beginning breaths a mastermind evil. I am seeing more and more of it in the Scriptures (vast numbers of them in apocalyptic passages) and the news headlines.

(I suggest reading Revelation 17 and Daniel 2 before going forward)

1)Revelation 17 and the final beast empire.

This chapter has put my head in knots countless times but I feel like I understand it now for the most part. The wording is kinda confusing and I usually just skipped over it instead of getting a headache. But it is not as difficult as I once thought.

Revelation 17
9 “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. 10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. 11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.”

This is describing the end-time beast and harlot that the Apostle John sees in an open vision. When it talks about seven mountains it is refering to seven empires. Mountains are symbolic for empires throughout the Bible (Jeremiah 51/Daniel 2). The phrase five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come is saying that five of the empires of the vision are no more or deceased, one is currently in power and the next has not yet come into power.

The five that have fallen are all empires that have ruled over Israel politically and have been used as chastisement from God to the nation of Israel. These are a)Egypt, b)Assyria, c)Babylon, d)Persia, and e)Greece. The one that was currently in power at the writing of the book of Revelation was none other than the Roman empire. When talking about the beast empire it says that it is “is not is himself the eighth and is of the seventh”.  By saying that it “is not” means that it cannot possibly be the Roman empire because the Roman empire was currently in power as stated in the previous verse.  It is saying that the Beast empire is going to be like or part of the seventh major empire that has political authority over Israel.  If Rome were the seventh empire, then the passage would be saying that Rome is the sixth, seventh, and eighth empires, which does not make logical sense.  So if the antichrist-empire at the end of the age is going to be part of the seventh empire in a new form, then the question is “What empire was the seventh that ruled over Israel after Rome?”  The answer to that was the Islamic empire of Mohammed and the leaders following him! They ruled from 636-1099 and the Dome of the Rock was built by Caliph Abd el-Malik on the grounds of the destroyed Jewish Temple.

2)Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and Daniel’s statue.

Most prophecy teachers that have taught about the end times, that I know of, have interpreted Nebuchadnezzar’s metallic statue as follows:

Head of Gold-Babylonian Empire
Chest and Arms of Silver-Medo Persian Empire
Belly and Thighs of Brass-Grecian Empire
Legs of Iron-Roman empire
Ten toes-Revived form of Roman empire

I agree with the first three but the last two I have my doubts about for a number of reasons.

Daniel 2:40-”And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others.”

What this is telling me is that whatever this empire of iron is, it had to break and crush into pieces all the other empires of the statue before it. The Roman Empire did conquer the western-most edges of these empires, but did not conquer the primary geographic regions of any of these empires. Does this strike anyone as something odd? If Rome did not rule over the Babylonian, Medo-Persian, and Grecian empires then they cannot possibly be the fourth empire or empire of iron and therefore cannot be the revived empire at the end of the age. But if you go a little further into history and look at other empires, there is one that fits this description perfectly; the Islamic empire beginning with Mohammed! This is telling me that it will be a revived Islamic empire in the feet and toes during the second coming of Christ! This sounds just like Revelation 17 to me.

3)The Stone Cut Out Without Hands-Daniel 2:34-35

34 “You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.”

In these verses we are told that when Christ returns (the “stone cut out without hands) and establishes His kingdom and crushes the empire of the Antichrist, all three of the previous empires will be crushed as well. If Jesus returned today and crushed the Roman Empire, would Iraq (Babylon) also be crushed in the process? What about Iran (Persia)? Would Afghanistan and Pakistan be crushed? Yet the Bible says that “the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, will be broken to pieces together.” If Jesus crushed the Islamic empire would it also crush all three of these other empires? Yes!

Below are maps of all of the empires discussed in this post; 1)Babylonian 2)Grecian 3)Medo-Persian 4)Roman 5)Islamic(2). The Evidence speaks for itself!  We are drawing near the end of this age and the antichrist/false prophet empire is on the horizon!  Even so, Maranatha!

    hello,
    i dont know who are u but what are u writting here makes sense to me. i always ” fight” with all kind of people from differet belives muslims, christians, telling them that all, mayme all the religions in the world are fake, false and made by man not god etc, expecially the powerful chatolic religion!

    • beholdjesus Says:

      I am glad it makes sense to you. I should be expanding more on this topic in future blogs. Stay tuned and bless you!

    • Rainsipper Says:

      God would never have trusted a Human to figure out the TRUE religion, of course He had to Divinely reveal it – and he certainly woldn’t have used a Pedophile to point people in the right direction would He have?

  2. Mohammed Says:

    You my friend are smoking something funny.

  3. The website goes into many details to discuss al-Mahdi and the Antichrist.

  4. Jesus is LORD Says:

    Hi there, very interesting indeed but would you care to explain to me what do you make of Revelation 17:3-6

    Who else wears Purple and scarlet if not the Roman catholic empire?
    and who else have a golden cup etc etc ?
    who else has a mystery name ?

    Thanks looking forward to value your ideas

    The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. 5 And on her forehead a name was written:

    MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

    6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.

    • beholdjesus Says:

      Hey Jesus is LORD,

      I am currently studying and praying about this very thing. Revelation 17 is one of the more difficult passages in Scripture and I feel only the last generation will know of its intended meaing (which I think is this generation). I am convinced it is not the Catholic Church because the CC cannot meet the other criteria of Scripture. Compare Scripture with Scripture with an inductive method and the CC is cleary ruled out.

      I do not know of this for certain, but I lean towards two viewpoints currently:
      1)That this will literally be Babylon and the Mystery is that all of the false religious systems can trace their roots back to the Babylon with Nimrod and the Tower of Babel (Babylon). I am studying and writing an extensive article on this and will be posted in the future.

      2)That the harlot Babylon is Saudia Arabia.

      Sorry I could not take the time to expand but hit me back if you would like more info on these two views.

    • Rainsipper Says:

      The Harlot of course is the USA, not because of Liberty of course, but because of the Americanization of religion. Ah listen to Mah conscience, and Mah heart… type of thing. Drunk on the blood of Saints, obviously is referring to people who are standing on something that was built by saints, yet no longer has any spiritual and sacred truth in it.
      Protestantism is a sliding scale of creeds, a slanted slope into the abyss of unbelief!

      • beholdjesus Says:

        Rain Sipper,

        I don’t understand the logic of the Harlot being the USA. Being drunk on the blood of the saints means literally killing the saints of the Most High God and doing it intentionally. There is no justification for this being America, since murdering Christians is not a common thing in the country.

  5. AerylonBW Says:

    The answer to what you asked above about your doubts on the statue. IE – Daniel 2:40. The Empire you speak of that is of iron, is the USA. Think about it. Especially under current political world views, actions, attitudes, and the bestowment of the words “Sort of God” and “The One” and “The True Messiah or Messiah” by the Media as a whole with a few exceptions. I am surprised however you did not think of that. There is evidence all over the place that this is true. Not to mention that the Prophecy Watchers world wide and in Israel already believe the man in the white house IS the Antichrist. However, I cannot and will not say he is, nor will I say he is not — will only say he fits the Antichrist’s profile. Almost to the letter. And already 3 prophecies have happened, and the forth is building even now in Israel and Iran. Israel is preparing for war against the muslim nations to protect the Promised Land and the Jewish people. When i say preparing for war, I am not speaking of rockets being tossed into each other’s territories. I am speaking of invasion and Nukes. A full out war. Also, this war is not limited to just the Muslim nations at which they know that Peace will never come. It can’t. Not until the “rise of the antichrist.” This next part is supposition only; because I am not in Israel. But I know many people there, some of which are in the “know.” I myself have read some memos, directives, retaliatory regulations, and their versions of the rules of engagement. In 5 out of 8 memos, they do not speak of much war against Iran. But war against Palestine. (No Suprise there.) But what IS a surprise is that Netanyahu and Israeli intelligence have issued top secret orders. A lot of which I don’t have access to, but the ones I do have repeat over and over that the war will be waged against their biggest ally, the United States.

    Not because of any “traditional” reasons, but because they have said that the current Administration has effectively turned its back to Israel and has embraced Muslims over the Jews. Which has NEVER happened in the history of the USA Foreign Policies. The reason is: their assessment of Obama is that they truly believe him to be the snake of legend. The final of the historical antichrist’s — that he will usher in the 7th Empire, and then the 8th and final human empire which would consist of the ten kingdoms, the world government and so on. But that 8th empire cannot be established until after the Antichrist resurrects after getting the head wound and the withered arm.

    • beholdjesus Says:

      AerylonBW,

      What 3 out of 4 prophecies are you referring to that have already happened? Let me know and then I will respond in full. Bless You.

  6. This is the first time I am hearing from anybody that the legs of Daniel’s dream is not the Roman empire. I have been hearing about end times prophecies from my child hood and almost every preacher I have heard mentioned it was the Roman empire. As soon as I read yours I could say Amen. Praise our Lord for revealing that to you. May God bless you brother and your work.

    • beholdjesus Says:

      The Roman theory is by far the most widely accepted theme but I believe the Lord will start a “revolution of revelation” to those saints sitting at His feet and asking Him His secrets. Bless You.

  7. I think it possible that the Roman Catholic church is a partial fulfillment, like Antiochus Epiphanes was. It made these astonishing prophecies comprehensible at a time when they otherwise wouldn’t have been.

    I, too, wonder about the scarlet and purple, etc., that seem to point exclusively to the RCC.

  8. The main problem with the European theory is that scripture was written Israeli-centric, not Euro-centric or for that matter, Amero-centric. Thus one needs to look at what is happening to and around Israel in order to understand it, Europe taking a back-seat to that and the US being even farther behind. It is unfortunate that we intemperate scripture differently based on where we live, in most cases places which were unknown in ancient times to the Israelis and even if they were known, were of little importance.

    Estimates of the world’s Islamic population were shown to be low, based on a recent study, 25% of the world’s populations is Muslim or 1,700,000,000, up from the 21% or 1,450,000,000 which was wildly regarded as official. Now one must take population growth dynamics into account. The population growth rate of much of the Muslim world for 2010-2050 is going to be around 60% compared to 32.4% for the world as a whole. This translates into the world being just over 30% Muslim as of 2050, or with 2,750,000,000 Muslims out of 9,150,000,000 inhabitants. These figures do not take into account any growth due to continued immigration to Europe and the US, nor do they take into account any conversions, which could perhaps increase the figure to 3,050,000,000 or 1/3. Now that’s a long way off from being a world system, however given that the world was 15% Muslim in 1900, it’s a lot closer than it was only a century ago.

    Now think about it…what on earth would be more of a power than the growing Islamic world? Especially when you think of the Death of Europe, spiritually, economically and politically. The non-religious population of Europe (around 25%, 25% more being agnostic) will eventually turn to something, and that something won’t be Christianity given how it is represented. Immigrants from abroad have brought Islam and will continue to do so. It’s not a far stretch of the immigration for the population to eventually convert.

    Also, as time passes, the US and Europe will become less and less relevant in the scheme of things. In 1950, the population of the US made up 6.21% of that of the world. That dropped to 4.71% in 2000 and is expected to drop to 4.41% in 2050. Europe’s declining importance is even greater than that of the US. In 1950, 21.56% of the world’s population lived in Europe. By 2000 that figure was nearly halved dropping to 11.88%, and projected to drop to 7.55% in 2050. Combined, Europe and the US dropped from 27.77% in 1950 to a projected 11.96% in 2050.

    Where these demographics will lead in the centuries to come is unknown and open to much debate, however some things are certain. The West will continue to decline in importance, the Muslim World will continue to increase in importance, eventually the number of Muslims will eclipse the number of Christians. The timetables here are in centuries, I cannot see the End Days coming before 2250 unless things drastically change.

    This link seems to provide the best overall information with regard to the revived Caliphate and the empire of the Antichrist:

  9. David H Mercier Says:

    I don’t think it will be Islamic, the European Union is a very secular society.

    • beholdjesus Says:

      Hey David,

      Many people have and are looking towards the EU but I just can’t see it in Scripture. What about the EU being secular points towards it being the Antichrist empire?

      • David H Mercier Says:

        He is going to rule over the gentile nations and forsake the god of his fathers, and the eu has all the traits of a revived Roman empire.
        I go into it in extent at my blog.

      • beholdjesus Says:

        I believe those first two parts of your reply fit in line with an Islamic Antichrist and I do not believe the EU represents a revived Roman empire very well for a number of reasons. But, then again, I do not believe there will be a revived Roman empire. Thanks for your presence here though! Bless you.

      • David H Mercier Says:

        You know Chuck Missler is saying the same thing and I disagree with him, I’ll put something together this week or so showing what’s wrong with it.

      • David H Mercier Says:

        Daniel 11:36-37 points to the antichrist as being more atheistic than anything

        Daniel 9:26 points clearly to him coming from the Roman Empire

      • beholdjesus Says:

        Hey David,

        Read my article entitled “Foundation for the Revived Roman Empire Crumbles; Islamic Empire Stands Firm” and see what you think.

        Blessings

  10. Antichrist will occur at 2048

    since at 2048 knowledge will grew more.

    and the installation of robots will be at that time.

    • beholdjesus Says:

      Hey David,

      Knowledge has already increased and is continuing to increase. Robots already exist. There is no way of knowing that the Antichrist will appear in exactly 2048. This is purely a shotgun guess. We will see what happens in the future.

  11. David H Mercier Says:

    read this whole thing, I cover the EU the WEU (10 horns) the rotating presidency and recommendation #666

    http://redeemthetime.net/e-u-roman-empire/

  12. its plain to see that the antichrist will rule over Islam and the whole world without studying scripture.

    • beholdjesus Says:

      Actually, this is not accurate. There will be many people resisting the Antichrist, including whole nations and he will not be ruling over the whole world. Scripture study is needed.

  13. Hi guys, don’t think me odd, but what do you make of the assertion by some end-time researchers that what we are actually facing is an imminent invasion of the Earth by extra-dimensional entities (demons, aliens) from the astral-etheric plane? Just curious.

  14. Gente - Isaac Otto Zutz Says:

    I think that is one of the most important information for me. And i’m happy studying your article. However should observation on few general things, The website style is perfect, the articles is in point of fact great : D. Good task, cheers
