The three beasts &  666

Revelation Chapter 13 begins a section from Chapters 13-19 that go from the midpoint of the Tribulation until its end when Yeshua returns to this Earth as King of Kings and Lord of Lords to reign from Mount Zion in Jerusalem. The focus of the Antichrist's slaughter will shift from the Gentile nations to the Jewish people. The Antichrist becomes history's first true worldwide dictator! Not only we can read about the anti-christ in ancient history, as also in the figure likewise Nimrod; not just a nightmare fiction but before our very eyes in these End Time it is becoming very real!

Commentary

See also below this web-page about the many-fold power of Antichrist:

 

13:1

And I stood upon the sand of the sea (beach), and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten (royal) crowns (diadems), and upon his heads the name (titles) of blasphemy.

Sources:  Dake's Annotated Reference Bible. & Amplified & NIV

The Antichrist, who is introduced to us as a "beast who comes up out of the sea." That latter phrase is a symbolic reference to the Gentile nations surrounding the Mediterranean Sea it on 3 sides. (Old Roman Empire territory), indicating the Antichrist will be a Gentile. The Antichrist becomes history's first true worldwide dictator. He also becomes the object of worldwide (pagan) worship! (Daniel 7:2-3,17).

 

13:2

And the beast which I saw was (resembled) 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 [own might and] power, and his seat [own throne], and great authority. [dominion]

For a description of the leopard, Daniel 7:6. It is distinguished for bloodthirstiness and cruelty, and thus becomes all emblem of a fierce, tyrannical power. In its general character it resembles a lion, and the lion and the leopard are often referred to together. In this description, it is observable that John has combined in one animal or monster, all those which Daniel brought successively on the scene of action as representing different empires. Thus in Daniel 7:2-7 the lion is introduced as the symbol of the Babylonian power; the bear, as the symbol of the Medo-Persian;

When we examine the Scripture, first we need to commit ourselves to dig into a much deeper investigating. The ultimate image would be the 'Anti-christ' , which will be the manifestation of 'Lucifer" in a human image. In the end , the living image of 'satan'  will attempt to replace Yeshua/Christ - this is the 'Anti-christ'!

13:3

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. [the whole earth went after the beast in amazement {and} admiration]

He (antichrist) will not be assassinated and resurrected from the dead, as taught by some. It is one of the heads on the beast that is wounded to death and is healed, not the beast itself Therefore, all the theories of antichrist being a resurrected man, a reincarnation of some historic man, an incarnation of the devil, etc., are false! It is one of the nations (Babylon)  that will raise again! (see Seven-Headed, Ten-Horned Beast).

 

13:4

And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: [he had bestowed on the beast all his dominion {and} authority] and they [praised and] worshipped the beast, saying, "Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?"

The vision in this chapter is of two distinct "beasts," each with peculiar characteristics, yet closely related, deriving their power from a common source; aiding each other in the accomplishment of the same object, and manifestly relating to the same power under different forms. Notes on the New Testament Explanatory and Practical.

 

13:5

And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue [uttering boastful and blasphemous words, and he was given freedom to exert his authority {and} to exercise his will during] forty-two months.
(three and a half years).

(Page 364  Walid Shoebat {"God's war on terror"}) Ć©

 Scriptural speaking, blasphemy is an anti-Yahweh or anti-christ word or deed! to claim the attributes of G-D {for yourself}, claim to be Messiah, deny the Holy Spirit, deny the Trinity; the cross of Yeshua Messiah; or even denying G-D's edicts and declarations, - are all blasphemy. Satan blasphemed when he said: "I will be like the most High"(Isaiah 14:14)
This masquerading serves a two-fold purpose:
1. It fulfills satan's desire to be like G-D!
2. It confuses and deceives mankind into their offering their worship to him instead of G-D!

 

13:6

And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His Name, and His tabernacle, (Temple) and them that dwell in heaven.

 

 

13:7

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, (against God's holy people) and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.[to extend his authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation]

 

13:8

And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him [ will fall down in adoration {and} pay him homage] (the beast), whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain [in sacrifice]  from the foundation of the world.

 

 

13:9

If any man [is able]  have an ear, let him hear. (willing to hear should listen and understand)

 

 

13:10

He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith [and fidelity]  of the saints. [God's {righteous} people].

13:11

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth  [rising up out of the land itself]; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake [roared] as a dragon.

An  another beast who rises up out of the earth, literally "the land." Just as the sea is a prophetic symbol for the Gentile nations, the land is a symbol of Israel. Thus, the implication here is that this beast will be a 'Jew'!

!!!

13:12

And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him [and right of control of the former beast in his presence], and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast [to exalt {and} deify the first beast], whose deadly wound was healed.

This beast is later referred to as the "False Prophet." This nefarious character serves as the Antichrist's right hand man. He exercises the authority of the Antichrist, carrying out both political and religious duties.
Both beasts symbolize two natural men who will be born in these last days, will fulfill prophecy and die at Armageddon (Rev. 19:20; Dan. 7:11; Isa. 11:4; 2Th. 2:8).  

 

13:13

And he doeth great wonders (astounding miracles), so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

 

13:14

And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast [he deceives those who inhabit the earth, commanding them to erect a statue (an image) in the likeness of the beast]; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image (Statue of the first beast) to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

The False Prophet will argue in the name of "tolerance" that there are many roads to God, that God has revealed himself in religions.

 

13:15

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (Also beheaded)

 

13:16

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, [to be marked with an inscription {stamped} on] to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

No faithful Christian or observing Jew will take this mark, at this point all Christians and Jews will become outlaws. They will have to hide out in the countryside and live off the land. They will be hunted down like animals and most of them will be killed - not all, but most. It will be a horrible period of unparalleled persecution of believers in the true God.

Politically, the False Prophet is the one responsible for administering the Antichrist's enforcement system. It is based on the requirement for all of mankind to take the name or the number of the beast, which is 666.

One BILLION Ç “Bio-chips” are being produced by MONDEX each year. MOTOROLA is another company producing MICROCHIPS. If the chip is removed via surgery, the small capsule would burst. The individual would then be contaminated by the enclosed Lithium stored inside the microchip. Within the Lithium there is embedded micro-bacteria. Of course, if the microchip would break the Global Positioning System (GPS) would detect this and authorities would be immediately notified. Shockingly! the word MONDEX means---”Money In Your Hand.”

More than 250 corporations and 20 countries are involved in the distribution of MONDEX to the world and many nations are “privileged” to use this system, among them: Great Britain, Canada, U.S.A., Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, India, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, El Salvador & Brazil.

A new technology is making it feasible for RFID-microchips to be painlessly implanted beneath the skin. It consist of miniature integrated circuitry that holds an processes information, as well an antenna  that can receive or transmit a signal. This implanted device was 3 millimeters wide and  23 millimeters long, and it emitted unique signals you could hear only if you had transmitters working in what they call an "intelligent building!"
These things shows us today that technological systems are now available to fulfill  a prediction made about 10900 years ago by John the Apostle of the Lord! Now it is easy to understand  how the Antichrist is going to use these monitoring chips as a means of applying this mark and (evil) controlling the population.
(Source: "The coming economic Armageddon" by David Jeremiah; Page: 132, 133)

The events of tribulation will not just suddenly begin to happening the day after the rapture of the righteous saints; they will be building momentum during the days before it. Events occurring right now TODAY, show that our nowadays world is being prepared for the reign of the Antichrist and the mark of the beast! Today's grim headline allow us to understand ancient prophecy as never before! (Source: Book: "The coming economic Armageddon" by David Jeremiah; Page: 134)

13:17

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (representing his name.)

Ĺ Picture-source: Rick Torn

No one will have power to buy or sell unless he bears the stamp (mark, inscription), [that is] the name of the beast or the number of his name!

The Greek letters (Chi Xi Stigma) that are used to translate to the number "666"  very much resemble  the most common creed of Islam Bismillah (Basmalah), written in Arabic, which literally means: "In the name of Allah"!  and is followed by the symbol of the crossed sword, which is used universally throughout the Muslim world to signify Islam!
(INSPIRATIONING SOURCES: (Page 369  Walid Shoebat {"God's war on terror"})

Evil is usually done in hiding the identities. satan; the hidden 'lord of hell', did himself in the body of the serpent in order to destroy mankind! "Nimrod" is hidden in the complex mysteries of paganism. The hidden 'god' of hell or the underworld. "Pluto" is another identity of Nimrod, or 'satan' himself! The deceptive nature of the mystery system is 'Saturn', which means "the hidden one"! It is a Chaldean word, which only had 4 letters 's-tur-' which add up in the mathematics of the Chaldean language to be "666"  which also refers to the number of the 'beast! (Genesis 10 & 11)

13:18

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man [for it is a human number]; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. - 666

Here is [room for] discernment [a call for the wisdom of interpretation]. Let anyone who has intelligence (penetration and insight enough) calculate the number The number of a certain man; his number is 666.

Nimrod - versus - anti-christ - Islamic  - connection...
(See more about: Nimrod and the "After-Flood-New-World-Order")

Nimrod was the 'hero' or 'giant' established a new (after-flood) world order, something's which the world-leader of today are managing to rearchieve as we approach the coming of Yeshua (Rapture-Harpazo) in this End Time! or Last days! The Babylonians priests were the priest of 'god' 'bel', 'belus' in ancient time known as "Baal"! Baal, meaning 'lord'  became the one creator "god"  and was apparently represented by the sun. Actually, Nimrod replaced G-D with 'satan' and Nimrod himself the "high-priest of Baal"!!! Nimrod was probably taught by his father "Cush" (son of Ham; grand-son of Noah) to the liaison between the evil spirit world and the people of the "after-flood-new-world'! Dead or alive, Nimrod embodies the "spirit of anti-christ" from the tower of Babel until the Battle of Armageddon! (INSPIRATIONING SOURCES: ; " They came from Babel by S.A Cranfill"; Page 98/96/86/84/100)

Simply another name for...

In (Judges 8:21-Amplified)  Then Zebah and Zalmunna said, Rise yourself and fall on us; for as the man is, so is his strength. And Gideon arose and slew Zebah and Zalmunna and took the [crescent-shaped] ornaments that were on their camels' necks. The word used for "crescent" is "saharon", which literally means "Crescent moon" It comes from the roots of sahar, which is literally used for the name of 'satan'  in (Isaiah 14:12) How art thou fallen from Heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!; as 'Hilal ben Sahar', 'Hilal', or Heylal', , is the word the KJV-translation  translated as "Lucifer"! The full phrase actually means:: "morning star / crescent moon"; which is the very symbol of Islam. In other words; the symbol of Islam and the name of "satan" are one and the same! This is significant and is a very clear hint into the spiritual origins of Islam and the "Anti-christ"! We also can see that the ancient enemies of (also ancient) Israel worshipped a "god" that was symbolized by the image of the 'crescent moon'! TO THIS DAY, this has NOT changed! In fact all evidence points to the fact that "Allah" is simply another name for Bel or Baal, which simply means: "lord" and is also the title of reverence to the Babylonian 'moon-god'! And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; (Revelation 8:10) 
(INSPIRATIONING SOURCE G-D's war on terror; by Walid Shoebat;  Page 382/384/385)

Most  deceptive, seductive and elusive aspect of the mysteries...

This is most  deceptive, seductive and elusive aspect of the mysteries, the supposed high ideals and 'good' (???) intentions of so many of its proponents. Seems to be so attractive, particular on the 'surface'. This is why it is so confusing to sort out solid, uncompromising Scriptural (Biblical  OT-NT) doctrine from the  supposing 'teaching' of 'love'  and 'spirituality' and bringing all peoples and all religions worldwide together in "peace" {In Hebrew translated as "security"} and "harmony"  without being 'judgmental", "divisive," and "intolerant"! (???)

Self-mutation...?

A common practice of Babylonian paganism was self-mutation. Scourging (whipping) himself or cutting oneself was instituted as symbolic of the execution and mutilation of Nimrod! Cutting oneself is also well known satanic practice and even the violent, this refers back to the aspects of the Babylonian mysteries! Also in the Islamic belief system  are similar traditions! See also Elijah

The Islamic  "Messiah"

The Islamic  "Messiah" - figure "the Mahdi" is referring to as "the perfect human being who is heir to all prophets and pious men. The Mahdi" is essentially according Islam the 'reincarnation' of "Mohammed"! The belief in a coming "Mahdi" is universal for all Muslims and is a established doctrine for both 'Sunni & Shi'a Muslims, and has always been a of great importance in the Islamic world. The character(s) of "the Mahdi" is identical to the anti-christ in our Scripture! According Islam he is called "The awaited one"; "the lord of age"; This is exactly what we find described in our Scripture which calls "satan; the lord of age!"
{Page 53/54/ - Walid Shoebat {"God's war on terror"}

For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers' minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (Yeshua; the Messiah), Who is the Image {and} Likeness of G-D. (2 Corinthians 4:4) Instead of being blinded by satan like unbelievers are, believers recognize that Yeshua/Jesus is the exact likeness of G-D (see also Colossians 1:15). G-D the Father {YHWH} as spirit is invisible (1 Timothy 6:16). G-D’s Son, however, is G-D’s visible expression. Yeshua/Jesus not only reflects the Father, but, as G-D, He reveals G-D to us (John 1:18; 14:9; Hebrews 1:1-2). Yeshua's/Christ’s glory expresses Divine glory!

Not only we can read about the anti-christ in ancient history, as also in the figure likewise Nimrod; not just a nightmare fiction but before our very eyes in these End Time it is becoming very real!

The ultimate 'test' to know whether a spirit is from...

And every spirit which does not acknowledge {and} confess {that} {Yeshua}Jesus {Christ has come in the flesh} [but would annul, destroy, sever, disunite Him] is not of G-D [does not proceed from Him]. This [non-confession] is the [spirit] of the antichrist, [of] which you heard that it was coming, and now it is already in the world. (1 John 4:3)

The ultimate 'test' to know whether a spirit is from G-D or from the devil is specifically whether or not it acknowledge that Yeshua Messiah or Jesus the Christ; the Son of G-D has become man. Any spirit that does not acknowledge this is from the enemy of G-D, satan; and is the "spirit of the anti-christ". This also by itself proves that Islam is possessed with an Anti-christ spirit!
{Page 60 - Walid Shoebat {"God's war on terror"}

Control...

The (fallen nature) of humans  want to be 'the captains of his fate' and 'master' of his/her destiny'! Making its own decisions thinks to and getting what he/she deserve!?  That is one of the great reasons man try to escape  its responsibility and  'earn' the way to Heaven and creating "G-D" in is own imagination! Paganism -every un-scriptural religion to be found in the world is basically based on 'works' (in flesh)  or/and certain rules which allow that person to 'merit' some sort of salvation of 'heavenly' reward! (They came from Babel by S.A Cranfill"; Page 86)

 

 

Yeshua emphasized the horrendous nature of this period by stating that if it were not cut short by the Lord, no one would be left alive.

The number of the beast, for it is the number of man.

His number is 666 !.

 

The attributes of the Anti-christ are always opposite
from the attributes of
Yeshua/Christ

Yeshua is called

Anti-christ is called:

  The Anti-christ will claim enough "Messiah-like" qualities to (camouflage) deceive the world!
  Attributes of the "Mahdi"{"messiah for the Islam"} perfectly match what the Scripture warns us about!

The Truth

 

The father of lies (Liar; deceiver)

John 8:44

The Holy One

 

The lawless one

2 Thessalonians 2:8

The Son of G-D

 

The son of perdition

2 Thessalonians 2:3

The Mystery of Godliness

 

The mystery of iniquity

Revelation 17:5

 

 

Muslims believe:

1 John 2:22-23

 

 

Jesus/Yeshua is not the Son of G-D
Jesus/Yeshua is not G-D
G-D {YHWH} is not our Father
Jesus/Yeshua did not die on the cross
Jesus/Yeshua is just another prophet
NOT a Deliverer, NOT a Savior 
NOT the Kings of the Jews!

1 John 4:3
1 John 1:7

"Everyone who does not confess that Yeshua/Jesus has come in the flesh is an antichrist and whoever does not confess the testimony of the cross is of the devil...such a one is the first-born of satan" Polycarp of Smyrna (Disciple of John, who wrote the Book of Revelation)

For there are many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, who walk (live) as enemies of the cross of Christ (the Anointed One). 
(Philippians 3:18
)

The coming [of the lawless one, the antichrist] is through the activity {and} working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of [counterfeit- pretended] miracles and signs {and} delusive marvels--[all of them] lying wonders. And by unlimited seduction to evil {and} with all wicked deception for those who are perishing (going to perdition) because they did not welcome the Truth {but} refused to love it that they might be saved. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-10)
(Revelation 20:10)

For false Christ's and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive {and} lead astray, if possible, even the elect (G-Ds chosen ones). See, I have warned you beforehand. So if they say to you, Behold, He is in the wilderness (desert)--do not go out there; if they tell you, Behold, He is in the secret places {or} inner rooms--do not believe it. (Matthew 24:24-26)

Let them bring them forth and tell us what is to happen. Let them tell us the former things, what they are, that we may consider them and know the outcome of them; or declare to us the things to come. Tell us the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods; yes, do good or do evil [something or other], that we may stare in astonishment {and} be dismayed as we behold [the miracle] together! Behold, you [idols] are nothing, and your work is nothing! The worshiper who chooses you is an abomination [extremely disgusting and shamefully vile in G-D's sight]. (Isaiah 41:22-24)

Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them. (Isaiah 42:9)

Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east [where they are dispersed] and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, Give up! and to the south, Keep not back. Bring My sons from afar and My daughters from the ends of the earth-- (Isaiah 43:5-6)

[The Lord] Who confirms the word of His servant and performs the counsel of His messengers, Who says of Jerusalem, She shall [again] be inhabited, and of the cities of Judah, They shall [again] be built, and I will raise up their ruins, (Isaiah 44:26)

You shall not witness falsely against your neighbor.
(Exodus
20:16)

Let your Yes be simply Yes, and your No be simply No; anything more than that comes from the evil one.
(Matthew 5:37)

Islam denies the Cross of Yeshua
Yeshua/Jesus
NEVER died on the Cross!
Islam denies Yeshua/Christ as G-D's Son!
Islam created a "perverted" "Jesus" as  'Isa'

Who is the liar?

That they said (in boast), 'We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah;' but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not: Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is exalted in Power, Wise."
(Qur'an 4:157-8)

The Greatest of all Deceivers {Allah}
(Qur'an 3:54) Allah & satan share the same 'titles"

"He will be called 'Mahdi' because he will guide (yahdi) to something hidden and will bring out the Torah and Gospel from a town called Antioch." {Ka'b al al-Ahbar, an early Muslim commentator}

"the messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, He is called the Mahdi because he will guide the people to a mountain in Syria from which he will bring out the volumes of the Torah to refute the Jews. At the hands of the Madhi, the Ark of the Covenant will be brought forth from the Lake of Tiberius and taken and placed in Jerusalem."{Alsuyuti, a Muslim scholar}

Attacking the integrity of the Bible?

Why does the Muslim and even the whole world focus on attacking the integrity of the Bible? Not to other religions like 'Buddha', Hindus or even the Qur'an! So who is standing alone? Who truly believers in One G-D? And who is uniting behind so many other gods?

Why are so much focusing against the Jews?

The Word of G-D has such great & clear declaration, the Qur'an has none!

Aberrations are found in all of the older Qur'anic manuscripts. Can Qur'an  provide so many verses of a prophetic nature?

Permissible to lie?

"Speaking is a means to archive objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish it through lying because there is no need for. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible."
"Know this that lying is not a sin by itself, but if it brings harm to you it could be ugly. However, , you can lie if that keep you from evil or if it will result in prosperity."
{Imam Al-Ghazali}

What about ethics?

"The principle of sanctioning lying for the cause of Islam bears grave implications  in matters relating to the spread of the religion of Islam in the West. Muslim activists employ deceptive tactics in their attempts to polish Islam's image and make it more attractive to prospective converts."
{Abdullah Al-Araby}

According the so "Peaceful religion of Islam"...by Siraj Wahaj (the first Muslim to deliver prayers to the US House of Representatives): "take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a 'caliphate'. If we were united and strong, we'd elect our own emir {leader} and give allegiance to him. Take my word, if 6 to 8 million Muslims unite in America, the county will come to us."

Bringing message of confusion!

Revelation 13

According Islam...

Facts about the first beast rise up out of the sea

The antichrist!
Rider on a white horse Revelation

Attributes of the 'Muslim messiah"???

Mahdi; Islam's primary 'messiah'?
Rider on a white horse as Islam's 'messiah figure!

The End Time, End Times, or End of Days are the eschatological writings in the three Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) and in doomsday scenarios in various other non-Abrahamic religions.

In Christianity, the End Times are often depicted as a time of tribulation that precedes the Second Coming of the Christian “Savior“ or a “hoped-for deliverer”, Jesus or Yeshua, the Christian Messiah, who will usher in the Kingdom of God and bring an end to suffering and evil.

In Islam, Yawm al-Qiyāmah "the Day of Resurrection" or Yawm ad-Din "the Day of Judgment", Allah's final assessment of humanity, is preceded by the end of the world.

In Judaism the term “End of Days” is taken from the Tanakh, Numbers 24:4, as a reference to the Messianic era and the Jewish belief in the coming of 'Mashiach' Various other religions also have eschatological beliefs associated with turning and redemption.

The Antichrist's slaughter will shift from the Gentile nations to the Jewish people. The Antichrist becomes history's first true worldwide dictator!

Ĺ Revelation 6:2  I looked up and saw a white horse. Its rider carried a bow, and a crown was placed on his head. He rode out to win many battles and gain the victory. The white horse represents Antichrist;

{This is not to be confused with the white horse rider of Revelation 19:11-21 the other is Christ in Person!). This one begins a series of terrible events on earth; the "One" in (Revelation 19:11-21) ends these events!} He comes on a white horse, imitating Christ and claiming to be Him (Revelation 6:2). "satan" is the one who gives Antichrist a crown! (Daniel 8:24; 11:38-39; 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12; Revelation 13:2,4).

In Shia and Sunni eschatology, the Mahdi is the prophesied 'redeemer' of Islam who will stay on Earth for seven, nine or nineteen years (according to various interpretations) before the Day of Judgment; literally, the Day of Resurrection and, alongside 'Jesus' (???), will rid the world of wrongdoing, injustice and tyranny. In 'Shia' Islam, the belief in the Mahdi is a "powerful and central religious idea" and closely related to the Twelfth Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi, whose return from occultation is deemed analogous with the coming of the Mahdi.

The Islamic so-called "Messiah" - figure "the Mahdi" is referring to as "the perfect human being who is heir to all prophet and pious men. The Mahdi" is essentially according Islam the 'reincarnation' of "Mohammed"! The belief in a coming "Mahdi" is universal for all Muslims and is a established doctrine for both 'Sunni & Shi'a Muslims, and has always been a of great importance in the Islamic world. The character(s) of "the Mahdi" is identical to the anti-christ in our Scripture! According Islam he is called "The awaited one"; "the lord of age"; This is exactly what we find described in our Scripture which calls "satan; the lord of age!"

He will be a man

Rev. 13:18

 

 

He will rise out of the sea of humanity

The Antichrist, who is introduced to us as a "beast who comes up out of the sea."

A beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten (royal) crowns (diadems), and upon his heads the name (titles) of blasphemy.

Rev. 13:1; Dan. 7:24; 9:27; 11:36-45

Rev. 13:1

He will be a descendant of Muhammad and will bear Muhammad's name (Muhammad bin Abdullah)
His coming will be accompanied by the raising of a 'Black Standard'.
A 'star' with a luminous tail will rise from the East before the coming of the Mahdi! (a leading personality)

In Shi'a Islam, the Black Standard is a 'messianic symbol'. The tradition reports Muhammad said that the advent of the Mahdi would be signaled by 'Black Standards' proceeding from the north-eastern Iranian province of Khorasan.

He will become ruler of the territory of the 7 kingdoms symbolized by the 7 heads

He (antichrist) will not be assassinated and resurrected from the dead, as taught by some. It is one of the heads on the beast that is wounded to death and is healed, not the beast itself Therefore, all the theories of antichrist being a resurrected man, a reincarnation of some historic man, an incarnation of the devil, etc., are false! It is one of the nations (Babylon)  that will raise again! (see Seven-Headed, Ten-Horned Beast).

Al-Mahdi will appear just before the coming of 'Jesus' or 'Isa'; Alaihis Salam. He will lead the Muslim nation with 'justice' and 'kindness' and establish Allah’s rule. A righteous Caliphate will reappear after the earth has experienced its share of injustice and tyranny!

The Alevi, Yazidi, Druze, Bábí, Bahá'í, Berghouata and Ha-Mim movements either emerged out of Islam or came to share certain beliefs with Islam. Some consider themselves separate while others still sects of Islam though controversial in certain beliefs with mainstream Muslims

He will be an object of worship!

He will cause Islam to be the only religion practiced on the earth.
He and 'Jesus' (???) (Isa) will rule together for '40' years!???
He will restore faith (Muslim) to its original form and eradicate moral corruption.
Muslims have great respect for Jesus (known by the Arabic form of his given name as "Eesa" or" Isa") and for his mother Maryam. They do not, however, regard 'Jesus as the son of God' or as God!
In Islam, the 'Prophet Jesus' is considered to be a Messenger of God who was sent to guide the People of Israel  with a new scripture, the Gospel. In sharp contrast to Christianity, Islam emphatically denies that Jesus was the Son of God, or that he was Divine in any way. While accepting his Virgin Birth, Islam denies that Jesus was ever crucified or resurrected, or that he ever atoned for the sins of mankind; it especially scorns any notions that Jesus is to be worshipped or prayed to. (Muslim religion claims that Christians had lied and that Jesus will ride back with the Mahdi.

He will permit image worship of himself

Rev. 13:14-17; 14:9; 15:2; 20:4-6

 

 

He will cause the mark or emblem of his kingdom, or his name, or the number of his name to be branded upon the right hand or forehead of his followers (666)

Rev. 13:16-18; 14:9-11; 15:2; 16:2; 20:4-6

The antichrist begins a series of terrible events on earth; comes on a white horse; imitating Christ and claiming to be Him! "satan" is the one who gives Antichrist this authority and a crown!

Rev 6:2

He will appear riding on a white horse "Thunder"(Lightening)
The mahdi is Islam's primary 'messiah' figure!

He will cause Islam to be the only religion practiced on the earth
The mahdi is Islam's primary 'messiah' figure!

 

Kill the two witnesses

The Eastern Orthodox Church teaches that the Two Witnesses will be Enoch and Elias or Elijah (the two individuals who entered bodily into heaven), who will be sent back to earth to preach during the Great Tribulation, and they will be the last martyrs before the Second Coming.

Prophets are particularly important figures in many of the world's major religions. In particular, this article will focus on false prophets in Judaism, Christianity and Islam and the specific interpretative and theological models each religion uses in order to distinguish a true prophet from a false one!

Rev. 11:7-12

He will be loved by all (deceived) people of the earth (After killing the 2 witnesses which are 'public enemy #1 & #2 in the name of...?!)
The Destruction of Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal  The Dajjal will be killed. and the Dajjal’s death will occur after the angels turn him towards Ash-Sham away from the outskirts of Madinah.
Daǧǧāl is the Muslim interpretation for what for Christianity are the 2 witnesses in Revelation 11-7-12

Muslim Beliefs: Signs of the Appearance of the Dajjal and His Destruction.  There will be three hard years before the Dajjal (appears). During them, people will be stricken by a great famine. Daǧǧāl is a common Arabic word, with the meaning "deceiving", used in the sense of "false prophet".

Change times and laws

Daniel 7:25

He will desire to do two things: Time (the accepted world calendar) and laws (legal systems & constitutions)! He will attempt to invoke Islam's evil laws worldwide to replace every other law and constitution. (NOT cosmic laws; only G-D can change this!) The mahdi will attempt to change the law by instituting Islamic Sharia laws & constitution with the constitution of the caliphate; as far he is able to do so!
{Page 85/86/87 - Walid Shoebat {"God's war on terror"} ó

Keep in mind  that the text says: "he attempts" to change set times & laws, yet he only succeed partially, but never on a global scale, because like Nimrod in the story of the tower of Babel;
G-D will never allow the anti-christ to rule the entire world. G-D will stop anti-christ attempt to create one-world Government system! The religion of Islam fulfills this description!

Understand mysteries

Daniel 8:23  And at the latter end of their kingdom, when the transgressors [the apostate Jews] have reached the fullness [of their wickedness, taxing the limits of God's mercy], a king of fierce countenance and understanding dark trickery {and} craftiness shall stand up.

He will cause Islam to be the only religion practiced on the earth

 

 

 

He will make serve year peace treaty with a Jew of priestly lineage

 

The souls of them that were beheaded by the antichrist for the witness of Yeshua, and for the Word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands!

In God's War on Terror, Shoebat and Richardson provide the readers with such abundant research that one needs to read the book in very small portions in order to process all of the information. Presenting the case for a Muslim Anti-Christ versus an European Anti-Christ, this book leaves virtually no rock or leaf unturned. Delving deeply into numerous Old Testament passages that most prophecy books never even touch, multiple new insights are presented that are so abundant and so striking that one wonders how they could have been ignored for so long. The book concludes by bringing in numerous developing stories from around the world that are somewhat flying under the radar that substantiate all that the authors are arguing for throughout the book. This book will unquestionably go down as one of the most influential and world changing books of recent decades. Five stars is not enough to express how excellent this book is!
