Religion of the Beast - Islam or not?

24 posts in this topic

There are many striking similarities between Islam and the End Times religion of the Beast. However, I'm still not sure whether or not I believe that Islam is the main player for this role. It's quite possible that Islam will cease to exist after the war of Ezekiel 38.

It could be that the End Times religion will share characteristics with Islam, but not actually be Islam.

 

But just for the record - here are the similarities:

 

1/ The Muslims believe that a messiah will appear in the End Times known as the Mahdi. He will rule the Earth alongside Prophet Isa (the fake Muslim Jesus) but only after defeating an enemy known as the Dajjal who Muslims refer to as the false Messiah.

After defeating Dajjal, Judaism and Christianity will be destroyed and the entire World will come under the rule of Islam after all non-believers have either been forced to convert to Islam or are killed.

 

This is a parallel to the book of Revelation. The Mahdi seems to be very similar to the Antichrist of Revelation and Isa would be the False Prophet of Revelation. Dajjal (whom Muslims believe to be a false prophet) has striking similarities to the real Jesus.The only difference in the Muslim version is that the Mahdi wins and Dajjal fails.

The prophet Mohammed had contact with Christians and Jews when he was devising the Q'uran. The Q'uran is based on falsified Bible stories. Could it be that Mohammed based his End Times prophecies on the book of Revelation but twisted the ending to make the bad guys win?

 

2/ The religion of the Beast will use beheading as a form of punishment according to Revelation. As Islam is the only religion whose scriptures actually endorse beheading as a form of punishment then Islam fits the bill here. Even in this day and age beheading is a popular form of execution in the Muslim World.

 

3/ Those who do not take the mark will not be able to buy or sell. Under Islamic rule non-Muslims (referred to as Dhimmis) were traditionally restricted in what they could buy and sell. In extreme cases, buying and selling became almost impossible.

 

4/ After killing the two witnesses, the bodies will not be allowed any burial, but after three and a half days they rise from the dead anyway.

Muslims believe that their dead should be buried as quickly as possible after certain rituals have been carried out. To leave a body unburied for too long is disrespectful as it does not allow for quick passage through Hell before reaching paradise. It is said that every Muslim has to pass through Hell before they arrive in paradise, the exception being those who are martyred in jihad who receive a free pass straight to heaven.

Muslims often insult their enemies by delaying or completely preventing the burial of their dead.

The antichrist will set himself above God.......   no Muslim would ever accept  any human as above Allah....    just something to ponder.

They might if they believe that he is the Mahdi. He does not have to set himself above God directly. By merely claiming that he is some sort of messiah, he is setting himself above God (in God's eyes anyway) but to everybody else he is just a messenger.

The Mahdi will be like the Beast. It is the Muslim Jesus (Isa) who will fulfill the role of the false prophet. This Muslim Jesus will not pretend to be God, he will merely claim to be an ordinary man, just another prophet like Mohammed. The Muslims believe that Jesus was just an ordinary man anyway. The only difference this time is that unlike Mohammed this false prophet will be able to perform a few little miracles, just for show - such as bringing fire down from the Sky.

 

There is also the other possibility that Islam will be all but destroyed after the Ezekiel 38 war and distraught Muslims will turn to the Religion of the Beast instead because its similarities to Islam will satisfy their longing for a god that is similar and will fill the spiritual (Satanic) vacuum that they now have in their hearts.

You lay out a very strong case here, O.W.  I believe islam is satan's very own 'religion' and, if not the religion of the Beast, it's a viable precurser.

It's remarkable how certain characteristics attached to Mahdi resemble those of the Anti-christ. Interestingly, I remember having heard some Iranian religious leader  recently claimed Mahdi would appear in Iran in near future. Credibility for the claim? Wait and see. I think it was due to the Mahdi being born to a MALE that they men in Islam should wear those baggy pants, so they will capture the messiah. For the sake of that poor man, too, I hope their prophecy will not fulfill. Correct me if I am wrong about this, please. I remember someone having said that at the university during a class.

Personally, I tend to see the false prophet could be the new age teacher, mayatrea, the world teacher. The Theosophical society already tried to sell us Krishnamurti as the second coming of Christ hundred years ago which caused quite a stir at a time. Rudolf Steiner, whom they asked to be their "John the Baptist" left their ranks after he figured out it had gotten too bizarre (later on he founded antroposophy, the source of Steiner-schools etc.). Strange enough, Krishnamurti himself withdrew at the crucial moment, leaving the theosophical society with Helena Blavatsky and others explain the media of the day what had happened. They took Krishnamurti at a very young age to train him (to expose him to the demonic). Of course, theosophical society later on became the source of most of the occult new age stuff in the west, advocating re-incarnation and combining every which tale and mytology into their "ancient wisdom" interpretation, explaining everything while answering nothing really. The publishing house called originally founded as Luficer Trust was changed to Lucis Trust after the confusion due to the name. It is still the publishing house for much of the new age books sold today. In addition, there exists a strange connection to the UN under the program the World Goodwill ( http://www.lucistrust.org/en/service_activities/world_goodwill ). So speculating about the chances of the new age  movement serving as the tool of the coming deception is not completely pulled out of the hat. They apparently still have gurus at UN and under the idea of dialogue between religions they have a permanent seat at the UN meetings. Go figure, folks who claim that Satan is our true God shouldn't be allowed into the world politics if you ask me. But I guess it serves the devil quite a bit, in addition the international affairs is about world domination and not about bringing the world peace about.

I bring this up only as another perspective to the OT and Islam.

We may not have yet seen the actual form of the spiritual deception. Due to the ekumenia steams and new age, as well as dialogue between religions might well produce a new global religion which every one were accept. At least, I believe this might be the plan of Satan, which does not mean it will successfully be carried out as such.

Islam does play a strong role nevertheless, and hopefully it will not be understood too late how much rope we've given them.

I think if we ever get to the point, utilizing some 3D technology or other deceptive equipment, people might actually be quite easily distracted to believe whatever they are being told. Out of fear and awe. Experiences are powerful a thing. Jesus showing Himself to muslims in dreams and visions is enough to make them convert, although it has to do with His spiritual presence as well. But due to same kind of experiences people are opening themselves to the occult. That's why it is vital to receive the Holy Spirit as a Christian to be born again of the Spirit. Without the living power of God we are otherwise no different in this sense from the people believing in the mythologies and fairy tales, except what we believe in is true in itself. But the reason and the way we would then believe, differs not too much. It's the living faith which distinguishes believers from rest of the flock. That's the only thing which helped the early believers to go through the oppression of the time, as well as for those who have to do it today, in muslim countries whilst we offer and share our land with the children of allah.

May God grand us wisdom to see through the end time deception, and make His Truth be known.

There's a big difference here.  Buddhism does not endorse indiscriminate killings, Muslim scriptures do.

What Buddhists actually do is up to them and is their own responsibility only.

The BBC article is biased. Muslims have been attacking Buddhists for years. Only now that the Buddhists have decided to fight back and have declared open war on Muslims do the BBC finally decide to report on it. Notice too that this BBC article attacks Christians as well. If you read it properly you will see this. The BBC are disgusting!
