ISLAMIC ANTICHRIST, PART 2
By Pastor Mike Taylor
Daniel 11:37 He shall give no heed to the gods of his fathers, or to the one beloved by women; he shall not give heed to any other god, for he shall magnify himself above all.
11:38 He shall honor the god of fortresses instead of these; a god whom his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts.
11:39 He shall deal with the strongest fortresses by the help of a foreign god; those who acknowledge him he shall magnify with honor. He shall make them rulers over many and shall divide the land for a price.
Revelation 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
In the times we live in, there are no greater mysteries that make men wonder than who will be the Anti-Christ, and who or what will be the mother of harlots, Mystery Babylon. For a time, it seems they are joined loosely together and form a one world religion and a one world government.. That much is proven in your bible, but it will be broken when the man of sin and his government is through with this harlot and will eat her flesh, strip her naked, and burn her with fire.
In past messages I have proposed that the Anti-Christ may come out of a major religion that will still be powerful on this earth and will deceive unrighteous men with its false “messiah”, called the Mahdi and a pact made between this evil man and a one world religion embodied by the Roman Catholic Church. In my studies, I have noticed that the Roman Catholic Church has been fervently trying to draw all religions into an ecumenical relationship that we “are all brothers, and can’t we all just get along?” type of message. I have hypothesized that when the church is removed from this world that two major religions will be still in force and will set out to deceive the world for power and money. This, I believe is embodied in the Roman Catholic Church finally joining forces with the Muslim world and both wishing to rule together. When true believers and the Holy Spirit is suddenly gone, then the world will be ripe for anyone who can calm their fears and let them continue in their own unrighteousness and give them a sense of security, even if it be a false security for a season.
In this message, I want to turn attention to a possible scenario that is playing out right now in front of us. I wish to dive further into the relationship between the Harlot Church and the Anti-Christ.
In many articles that I have read, and many U-tube videos, people have tried to discover for themselves by interpreting scripture with their own understanding. We ask for God’s Holy Spirit to lead us, but I must profess, that all we can do is search the scriptures and watch the signs of the times, because until God lays it down in concrete before us, we will not be 100% certain of what He was trying to get to us in the message. But Jesus told us something that we should all take very seriously in our individual lives.
Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
I firmly believe that all the prophecy teachers and ministers of our present day who are watchers on the wall of our end times, may, if not all, have a head slapping moment when they take the palm of their hand and raise it to their forehead and say “Ah, ha….that’s what He meant.” We are told to watch and pray, but also understand, that when this demonic forces start to become more clear, we who look to our bible will not be confused or misled this side of our departure from this earth to be with the Lord forevermore.
Let us take a moment and look at a symbol that John paints in the book of Revelation chapter 17.
17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
What is a harlot? When it is denoted of a human, it means being unfaithful with different lovers and committing fornication or adultery. In John’s account of the Mother of Harlots, this woman sits as a queen riding upon a beast and controls the beast in a loose relationship as noted in my past messages. In ancient times, Babylon was located in the land what is now Iraq, but hardly fits the final scenario of what will be the modern definition of Mystery Babylon. Many writers have tried to determine what this city is, and where it is located. Does the Bible gives us any clues to its location? I believe it does, but again, until it be revealed, we can only watch and pray.
In the bible, a harlot is denoted by a religion that follows after false gods and prostitutes herself with that religion. In ancient history, Jerusalem and the Israelites fit that category when the kings of Israel became corrupt and took the gods of the people surrounding them and became worse than they were. God delivered judgment upon Israel by dispersing her twice. The first time for 70 years and the last time, for almost 2000 years beginning in 70 AD, until Israel became a nation again in 1948. But where is Mystery Babylon today? Is she alive? Is she on this earth right now? I believe she is and we will watch and pray, as God will reveal it to His people when the time is right. But let’s look at some key scriptures that may point to her existence.
First John talks about a queen who sits over the kings of the earth. John was given a description of this mysterious woman who is a harlot and tells John:
17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
A religion that supports a false god, has a capital that is her base and resides her power. In Catholicism, it is Rome. Also, in Judaism the capital is Jerusalem. In Islam, where is the capital of the Muslims? That would be Mecca. There are many harlot religions in the world. Just name them off, if they believe on any other God, than the God of the Holy Bible. What are harlot religions? Any religion that does not recognize the God of the Universe, Jehovah or Yahweh, and His only Son, Jesus the Christ (Messiah) is a harlot. But this harlot religion that John speaks of is not their mother of these many religions Each have only one thing in common, who their father is, Satan the devil. Satan is who is called the father of lies and has infiltrated men’s minds and deceived them into worshiping false gods to their eternal damnation.
In Eastern religions when you say the mother of anything, then it means the greatest. So when John was saying that this harlot is the Mother of Harlots, it means she is the greatest and the most perverted of them all. So it comes down to one question, “Who is the most dangerous, the most blasphemous, the most dangerous, and the most seductive of all religions in this modern world?”
In Isaiah chapter 21, the prophet makes known of a great nation that will fall. John saw the same thing when He wrote in Reveltion:
14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
Isaiah speaks judgment on this harlot and identifies her in chapter 21 with these attributes of location.
21:1 The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass through; so it cometh from the desert, from a terrible land.
The KJV renders the phrase “burden of the desert of the sea.”, but can also in context be rendered. ‘burden of the desert BY the sea.”. So in context we see that this Harlot resides in a capital that is in the desert and is by the sea. John also makes the same inference when he writes in chapter 18:
18:17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18:18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
It gives you the picture that this capital is in the desert and has a either a port, or a way to ship her goods via the merchants and captains of the sea.
Let’s go look at another prophet who spoke of the destruction of a people located south of Israel located in a desert by the sea;
Jeremiah 49:7 Concerning Edom, thus saith the LORD of hosts; Is wisdom no more in Teman? is counsel perished from the prudent? is their wisdom vanished?
49:8 Flee ye, turn back, dwell deep, O inhabitants of Dedan; for I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him, the time that I will visit him.
49:20 Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD, that he hath taken against Edom; and his purposes, that he hath purposed against the inhabitants of Teman: Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out: surely he shall make their habitations desolate with them.
49:21 The earth is moved at the noise of their fall, at the cry the noise thereof was heard in the Red sea.
WHAT LAND ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?
Where are the cities mentioned in this passage? When is Teman? Where is Dedan and Edom? If you look at a historical map of the ancient world, we find that Dedan and Teman are the cities located in Yemen and stretching to Northern Saudia Arabia. So we’ve narrowed it down to a city that is in the desert, by the sea, and is located on the Arabian Peninsula.
In Isaiah 21, the prophet goes on to pass judgment on cities of Dumah, Seir, Tedan, Arabia, and Kedar and it is prophesied that their splendor will come to an end. Where are these cities located in what country? They are located in the modern land of Saudi Arabia. Just as John, Isaiah and Jeremiah spoke, Saudi Arabia is a desert by the sea and is surrounded by sea. In Arabic, Saudia Arabia is known as “Al Jazeera Al Arabia” or Arab Island and also can be called a “desert by the sea.”. Note that modern day Iraq and the ancient site of Babylon are not by any port, or any ocean, or is a vast desert. At least not like Saudi Arabia is when saying desert. What is the dominant religion of this area? Islam is the only religion in this area. All other religions that dare set foot in Saudi Arabia are either persecuted, or executed. And what is the capital of this false religion, not the nation, but the religion? Right, it is Mecca. Where is Mecca? Mecca is in the desert, by the RED SEA and is the spiritual capital of Islam.
An interesting note to ponder is that Mount Sinai is where God gave the Hebrew people His law, the Ten Commandments. Mount Sinai is located where?, It is located in the Arabian desert. Sinai or Suen is Arabic for Satan. So there God gave His law for a standard to live by and to bring a people unto Himself. He gave Satan a resounding defeat by delivering His people from Egypt, and will continue to defeat him again at this time.
STUDY TO SHOW THYSELF APPROVED
I submit for your study, to search scripture and see if you agree. In the end times, if it turns to be true, Islam will be the major religion in all the earth at the beginning of the Tribulation. It may be joined by another world religion, as I’ve mentioned, the Roman Catholic Church. Each will fulfill their desire for power in the short term. Each will use the other to rule all the earth in certain geographical areas, until the Beast Power and the Anti-Christ needs them no longer.
You ask, “How will this area be destroyed and by whom? If the Anti-Christ is Islamic, why would he destroy his own religion?
Good questions. Here is what Jeremiah had to say about this time:
51:11 Sharpen the arrows, fill the quivers! The LORD has aroused the spirit of the kings of the Medes, Because His purpose focuses against Babylon to destroy it; For it represents the vengeance of the LORD, vengeance for His temple.
51:12 Lift up a signal against the walls of Babylon; Post a strong guard, Station sentries, Place men in ambush! For the LORD has both purposed and performed What He spoke concerning the inhabitants of Babylon.
51:13 O you who dwell by many waters, Abundant in treasures, Your end has come, The measure of your end.
Who are the Medes? Correct. They are the inhabitants of the modern nation of IRAN!!. Now why would Iran hate their Muslim “brothers”? Because the Mother of Harlot is still a whore. Iran will hate her, because she has become more Westernized than all of her counterparts. She has dealt richly with the West and have provided herself with untold riches and luxuries. Remember she reigns as a queen over the kings of the earth as noted in Revelation chapter 17 quoted above.
But what have they been ruled by and what? Revelation 18:3 "For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality (adultery)
What “wine” does Saudi Arabia possess, that would cause the world to commit fornication with her and become rich in the process? The answer is OIL! A barren land has become rich with the wine of her fornication. She controls the world with the price of her wine…OIL!
So how can we be sure that the wine of Revelation is the OIL of Saudi Arabia? Isaiah spoke of their destruction in chapter 34:
34:8 For the LORD has a day of vengeance, A year of recompense for the cause of Zion.
34:9 Its streams will turn into pitch, And its loose earth into brimstone (sulfur), And its land will become burning pitch (bitumen).
34:10 It will not quench night or day; Its smoke will go up forever From generation to generation it will remain desolate; None will pass through it forever and ever.
Israel is at the center of all prophecy
What one commodity can make the world forget the Land of Israel and turn against her because of that desire for riches? OIL!! REMEMBER ONE THING. ISRAEL IS THE DOOR TO END TIME PROPHECY AND JERUSALEM IS THE KEY!!And in the end, it is the treatment of Israel that will cause untold judgment on the inhabitants of this earth. Getting back, oil is the wine that has made the world drunk. IN that day, the streams of crude oil which is what pitch and bitumen are, will fill their land and burn and the land will be uninhabitable. Because of the world’s desire for oil, and to placate the oil rich center of the Middle East who controls 20% of the known world oil supply, they have abandoned Israel and attempted to divide up her land, in order to drive down the price of the wine of their intoxication…OIL!! Would it surprise you that world policy, especially the USA under this administration, and past administrations have done the bidding of the most powerful nation that controls the engines of the modern world? You guessed it, Saudi Arabia. We do her bidding, at the expense of God’s chosen people to run our own factories, run our cars, and grease our palms with the untold profit that has been generated by this one country.
But the rest of the world of Muslims hate the economy of Saudi Arabia, because in their mind, since they deal with the West so heavily and we have, in the past, been a proponent of supporting Israel, they look on her as a whore to their own religion. The other sects of Islam hate the ways of Saudi Arabia for dealing with the West and indirect support of Israel,
But God hates her for a different reason. Mecca is the capital of the nation of Islam. Mecca is the spiritual capital of Islam. So why do you think God hates her? Mecca is the center of the largest false religion on earth, and has in its city the largest idol prayed to by all Muslims five times a day. It is the Kaaba stone.
History shows us that Mohammed, when he conquered Mecca, looked upon their idol worship of many gods as disgusting and destroyed all gods, but made Allat, the moon goddess, the supreme god for worship in Islam. He destroyed all temples, stripped them naked, and burned them with fire. As it was then, so it will be in modern times. Our God, the Almighty Jehovah hates the idol of Kaaba which is a black meteorite with images of female genitalia on it’s face, as He does all idol worship.. The Kaaba is a cube shaped shrine of black meteorite that is supposed to have the image of the god Allah on it’s surface. As I mentioned, it is the image of the female genitalia.
Zechariah chapter 5 speaks of this abomination.
5:5 Then the angel who spoke with me went out and said to me, "Lift up now your eyes and see what this goes forth."
5:6 I said, "What does this signify?" And he said, "This represents the ephah going forth." Again he said, "This signifies their appearance in all the land
5:7 (and behold, a lead cover appeared lifted up); and a woman sits inside the ephah."
5:8 Then he said, "This represents Wickedness!" And he threw her down into the middle of the ephah and cast the lead weight upon its opening.”
The Kaaba represents the basket, or ephah that gathers grain. And what is the grain? It is the people who worship this abomination. Inside you have a woman sitting in the middle. Remember what I told you about the symbol that is present on the surface of the Kaaba? Do you also remember that Allah was the moon goddess Allat, or Allai? Here it shows that the false god has feminine attributes, as do many other false religions that try to replace the Lord God of Israel by a feminine false god of the pagan worship out of ancient Babylonia.
IRAN BRINGS ENDTIME DESTRUCTION
Isaiah chapter 21 shows that God will stir up Iran and will bring her down to destroy this city.
Now why would Iran, besides what I’ve mentioned here wish to destroy the center of their religion? If the AntiChrist is Islamic, he is an impersonator!! Note the scripture quoted in the beginning of this message. Also note that Iran is Shia or Shiite by majority and Saudi Arabia is Sunni by majority and embraces Wahhabism as the state religion. Both are at direct odds with the interpretation of what Islam is and how it should be followed. Could it be that the Anti-Christ will come forth from an alliance of Shiite Muslims, with Iran as their leader? Will the Anti-Christ be Iranian? Interesting! Stay alert. And the most persuasive is the following verse for their reasoning to destroy this area.
Daniel 11:37 He shall give no heed to the gods of his fathers, or to the one beloved by women; he shall not give heed to any other god, for he shall magnify himself above all.
This son of perdition, this man possessed by Satan himself, will allow no worship of any other god, but himself and through his agent, the Anti-Christ, will Satan receive worship he so lustily desires. He will destroy any and all religions that are in conflict or take away from his perceived glory. Even Islamic prophecies talk about Mecca being destroyed and Jerusalem being the head of One World Government.
“The Mahdi will rule from Jerusalem, because Mecca will be destroyed.” Yawm Al-Ghadab, Safar Alwaly. If we want to take any stock in a Muslim prophecy, but it show that it is in their mind already.
God also hates this land because of their sins of human slavery. The Saudi kingdom has been the focus of many human rights violations and the slave trade of forced labor. Know that the Arabian peninsula produces nothing, but one thing…OIL!! It imports everything else that it desires, in with her vast wealth, the nations of this earth have become rich. She drowns in gold and jewels and has gold shops that line their streets.
18:11 "And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more--
18:12 cargoes of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of citron wood and every article of ivory and every article made from very costly wood and bronze and iron and marble,
18:13 and cinnamon and spice and incense and perfume and frankincense and wine and olive oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargoes of horses and chariots and slaves and human lives.
And even more importantly, the Arabian peninsula has been the center for human sex slave traffic the world over. She attempts to conceal her human rights violations, the sex slave trading, the luxurious lifestyle that her oil barons and sheiks live in, but the God of the Universe sees and knows it all.
Very soon, as man will arise and proclaim the religion of Islam , as the one true religion of the world. The Mahdi will proclaim himself the Islamic Messiah. Wonders will be produced probably at the Kaaba by the false prophet who has accepted the message of the Mahdi and wants the world religions to unite. Could he be the Roman Catholic Pope that will promote the unholy trinity of Islam, Roman Catholicism and the Caliphate, the Islamic Messiah….The Anti-Christ? All will claim that to follow the Mahdi will bring peace, tranquility and untold luxury for a world united….Don’t you believe it!
Revelation 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
A WARNING TO THE SEEKER OF ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS
IN that hour, a pilgrimage may be commanded to take place and journey to Mecca to worship at the Kaaba. God tells us to stay away, and to come out of her. Stay clear of Mecca, should the preceding comes to pass, as we stay alert, focused and breathing God’s Word to warn others. I write this for you may have come to a Christian website looking for answers to the terrible destruction that has suddenly come upon your land, your country, and your home. Jesus warned. in Matthew chapter 24, a most prophetic chapter from God in the Flesh:
24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Be not fooled. The man they want you to go see, is an imposter. He will proclaim great things and if you allow yourself, you will be swooned into accepting his demonic message. He may be Islamic and only time will tell if this be true, but will tell you what you want to hear to calm your fears, only to lead you into the most horror filled terror of your short lived lives. It is the beginning of the greatest time of human destruction on this planet that if it were not stopped, no flesh will be saved. In this hour, your hope is in Jesus Christ and Him alone. Either side of this journey leading up to and beyond the tribulation, Jesus is the answer to the question you seek. Call upon Him while there is time to do so.
Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
