Re: Very interesting research on Islam-Mahdi-Antichrist & The Mark of the Beast
I have a "pin point" study for thoughs that really want the truth about the book of Revelation.
Here are the conditions though:
A) Don't go in with a bias on Revelation, remember many have been wrong even when they were convinced that they were right.
In fact, that is exactly what happened to me.
B) You must devote time to it. The video study goes on for a long time, but is more and more gripping as it unfolds.
C)Also you must research the claims made, never take anyones word for it, check it out.


This isn't a strange teaching, and is not twisted in any place that I have seen. So it doesn't make you have to stretch your imagination.

I highly believe that anyone seeking the truth should commit time to this.
It changed my direction. It could save you years of giving out false teaching.
I recommend these videos first, which can also be found at the bottom of the first page. These are just the foundation pieces, the real meat comes after.





BE BLESSED

Islam is a false pagan religion created by the ideology of a false prophet.
Allah is no other than Satan himself the father of all lies
who has deceived many.

Why does Islam believe in the Mahdi returning and the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ returns after him?
Think about that. The antichrist rules a short time before the Lord Jesus Christ returns and establishes the eternal Kingdom of God.

the Mahdi will come (as a phase) to gather pepole and unite them against satan and his followers then Jesus (pbuh) will come (as the last phase) and kill the false massaiah and tell the people the only truth and show them the path to Allah,then the Judgement day will come .

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 755722


Show me in the hadith how to pray, including the phrases for each prayer, times, names, positions.

You can't because it's not in the hadiths. Look and find out for yourself.

You should ask the Jews. Because you are praying 5 times a day, just like they do. You are going through the same motions, just like they do.



Look up the book "To Pray As A Jew" by Rabbi Hayim Halevy Donin and you will see they get their method of prayer from Orah Hayim and Mishnah Berurah, part of the Talmud.

The Talmud are written tradtions of Moses (pbuh). Isa (pbuh) condemned them in Injeel remnants we possess.

Even the false messenger Rashad Khalifa uses this example of prayer, yet his own Quran (which he took 2 ayats out of) doesn't teach this ritual prayer nor the times.

Ablution is found in the Quran and Torah. This ritual prayer of the Jews and Muslims is not.

We are shown many examples of prayer in the Quran. Allah wants us to pray from our heart, not in a ritual fashion.

Examples of prayer:
Surah 1:1-7, 3:8, 5:83, 2:286, 3:191-194, 7:23,155-156, 11:47, 21:87, 23:97-98,118, 28:16, 40:7-9, 59:10, 71:28, 113 (all), 114 (all), 3:193, 7:47, 12:101, 2:250,286, 3:147, 2:201, 7:156, 17:80, 18:10, 20:25-28, 3:38, 14:40-41, 25:74, 46:15, 14:41, 59:10, 71:28, 4:75, 7:126, 10:85-86, 60:5, 21:83,87-88, 54:10, 11:41, 23:29, 20:114, 27:19, 46:15, 2:12

Look also to Zoroastrianism to see the Magian influence on Islamic-hadith prayer as well.

Peace.

The Thirteen Visions
by Mark Alan Sunderman

The predictions in the following Thirteen Visions will occur over a 12 year, 42 week period. [666 weeks]

The test for prophecy is 100% accuracy! Anything less is a guess.

The following visions came to me on October 17, 2004.

I proclaim these visions to you!

Vision One:
A charismatic Islamic leader shall take the Arabian nation by force. He will execute some and pardon others of the royal family. He shall be called by the name of Nasser. He will cut off oil supplies to the United States. He will sell all of Arabia's United States government bonds and securities. He will sell all of Arabia's investments of land and equities in the United States. He will persuade other Moslem nations to adopt his policies toward the United States.

The United States will suffer a great depression. Americans will starve in the streets of her cities. Nasser will form an Islamic Confederation with other Moslem countries. The city of Baghdad will be completely destroyed to the ground. Not a brick or a blade of grass will survive!

Vision Two:
A Jew will rise to power and lead the German nation. He will be assassinated. He will be blessed on his death bed by the newly elected Roman Pontiff. He will miraculously survive. He will become the most popular world leader. He will rebuild the German army. He will lead the European Union. He and the new Roman Pontiff will become political allies. The new Roman Pontiff shall have great power with the Jew.

Vision Three:
A nationalistic leader will rise to power in Russia. He will build Russia into a world super power. He will fear the rebuilt German army. He will cooperate closely with the Jewish leader of the European Union.

Vision Four:
A New World Order shall arise: China will occupy Taiwan and Korea and will sign a security agreement with Japan. Russia will become a world super power with China and the European Union. The European Union will share super power status with Russia and China. The Islamic Confederation will form a loose confederation of Islamic nations. The United States will no longer be a world super power.

Vision Five:
The Jew leader of the European Union will cause Israel and the Palestinians to negotiate. The nation of Palestine will be created by a treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. The Jew leader will be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Israel and the Palestinians will live in peace. Jerusalem will be the capital city of both Israel and Palestine.

Iran leaders pave way for messianic 'Mahdi'
5th annual confab brings together politics, religion, apocalyptic endtimes visions

August 10, 2009

© 2009 WorldNetDaily

Iran last week held a multi-day conference, bringing together politicians, mullahs, students – Shiite and Sunni alike – to plot what can be done on this earthly plane to hasten the coming of the anointed one, a messianic, endtimes personage known as the Mahdi.

It wasn't a conference covered by the western press.

But Joel Richardson, author of the new book, "The Islamic Antichrist," conducted interviews with participants of this year's conference, as well as previous conferences, which have been held for the last five years – all in a bid to lay the groundwork for an apocalyptic vision of the day Muslims will rule the world.

"For the past five years, the Iranian religious and political leaders have annually gathered together for two days in the city of Qom for what is called 'The International Conference of Mahdism Doctrine,' sponsored by the Bright Future Institute," explains Richardson in a WND commentary today. "The purpose of the Bright Future Institute is 'to introduce Imam Mahdi to the world' and 'to pave the ground for his reappearance' and as [President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad stated at last year's conference, 'help bring all of humanity to the knowledge of the true savior of mankind, Imam al-Mahdi.'"

Each year a growing number of Sunni Muslims and Christians join the predominantly Shiite hosts. This year, 400 articles were presented and 40 were selected for presentation. After the completion of the conference each year, the conference papers are published in book form and also placed on the Bright Future website.

"The theme of the conference this year was 'the Society and government which prepares the ground for the appearance [of the Mahdi]: Missions and Strategies,' explains Richardson, whose controversial book has skyrocketed up the best-sellers list since it debuted last week. "Each year, a special tribute is also paid to 30 key individuals who are recognized as being particular bright lights in the ongoing effort to spread the knowledge of the Mahdi worldwide. These 30 are known as 'the Helpers of the Mahdi.'"

Says Savyon and Y. Mansharof, an Iranian scholar: "From the establishment of the Islamic Regime in 1979 to Ahmadinejad's rise to power in August 2005, Mahdism had been a religious doctrine and a tradition that had no political manifestation. The political system operated independently of this messianic belief and of the anticipation of the return of the Mahdi. It was only with Ahmadinejad's presidency that this religious doctrine has become a political philosophy and taken a central place in politics."

"Mahdism is now increasingly being used as a political tool by appealing to the religious and nationalistic tendencies of various Muslims groups," says Richardson, who believes the striking similarities between Quranic and traditional Muslim depictions of the Mahdi suggest he could well be one in the same as the one known in Christian circles as "the Antichrist."
A presenter at last year's conference, Dr. Mariam Tabar, asserted that the "military capabilities of the future Mahdist state depend on Islamic governments in the here and now acquiring abilities to stand against the enemies of the imam [al-Mahdi]." Iran, of course, is attempting to become a nuclear power.

While some involved in Mahdism see the figure as a peace-loving global world leader, others within the movement reveal another side.

Last year, for instance, Ali Larijani, the chairman and speaker of the Iranian Parliament quoted Imam Muhammad Baqir, a famous Muslim scholar, as saying, "there must be bloodshed and jihad to establish Imam Mahdi's rule." Ayatollah Ibrahim al Amini, professor at the Religious Learning Center at Qom affirms Larijani when he states, "The Mahdi will offer the religion of Islam to the Jews and Christians; if they accept it they will be spared, otherwise they will be killed."

In "The Islamic Antichrist," Richardson, a student of Islam, exposes Western Christians to the Muslim traditions. He says most Christians have no idea of the stunning similarities between biblical Antichrist and the "Islamic Mahdi."

Richardson's book stands in stark contrast to most other popular prophecy books of the last 40 years.

The student of the Middle East says that after decades of reading popular prophecy books and even best-selling fiction like the "Left Behind" series, millions of evangelical Christians around the world are expecting the Antichrist to emerge from a revived Roman Empire, which many have assumed is associated with the Roman Catholic Church and the European Union.

Not so, argues Richardson. His book makes the case that the biblical Antichrist is one and the same as the Quran's Muslim Mahdi.

"The Islamic Antichrist" is a book almost certain to be greeted in the Muslim world with the same enthusiasm as Salman Rushdie's "The Satanic Verses." The author, Joel Richardson, is prepared. He has written the book under a pseudonym to protect himself and his family.
"The Bible abounds with proofs that the Antichrist's empire will consist only of nations that are, today, Islamic," says Richardson. "Despite the numerous prevailing arguments for the emergence of a revived European Roman empire as the Antichrist's power base, the specific nations the Bible identifies as comprising his empire are today all Muslim."

Richardson believes the key error of many previous prophecy scholars involves the misinterpretation of a prediction by Daniel to Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel describes the rise and fall of empires of the future, leading to the endtimes. Western Christians have viewed one of those empires as Rome, when, claims Richardson, Rome never actually conquered Babylon and was thus disqualified as a possibility.

It had to be another empire that rose and fell and rose again that would lead to rule of this "man of sin," described in the Bible. That empire, he says, is the Islamic Empire, which did conquer Babylon and, in fact, rules over it even today.

Many evangelical Christians believe the Bible predicts a charismatic ruler, the Antichrist, will arise in the last days, before the return of Jesus. The Quran also predicts that a man, called the Mahdi, will rise up to lead the nations, pledging to usher in an era of peace. Richardson makes the case these two men are, in fact, one in the same.
And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 1 John 5:20

Look who else recently conquered Babylon-Iraq? The U.S.A. so where does our nation fit with Bible prophecy?
The on going debate is who is Mystery Babylon the Great the Mother of all Harlots and of the abominations of the earth?
Revelation 17 and 18.

The U.S.A.?
The E.U.?
The Vatican?

I will let you decide but the U.S.A. has very significant similarities.

U.N.

What about the E.U./holy Roman Revived Empire

There's nothing to be sad about or in fear about the message? The information is given on the internet and read The Holy Bible, the Word Of God is all truth.

Revelation 1:1-8 (King James Version)

Revelation 1

1The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

2Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

3Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

4John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;

5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

7Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

This world has another thing coming to them be prepared and awake from your slumber. The Word of God will be fulfilled.
Revelation 11 (King James Version)

Revelation 11

1And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

2But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

3And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

4These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

5And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

6These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

10And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

11And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

12And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

13And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

15And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

16And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

17Saying, We give thee thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

18And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

19And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Re: Very interesting research on Islam-Mahdi-Antichrist & The Mark of the Beast
The Christian Community Needs to Stand Against the False Teaching of Islam
Christians must be aware of how some Muslims are deceiving us.

Enlarge Image Muslims have great misconceptions about our faith. The Muslim leaders talk to their followers about what they think we believe and create a bad image of Christianity, amongst Muslims. They also speak with Christians who are weak in faith, and question them about the bible and the Muslim view of Christianity. They do this to weaken their faith even more and get them to look into Islam. I feel we need to counter act this by being proactive, teaching them about what Muslims are trying to do, and why, because of what they believe.

As we learn from the bible how to live our daily life, to love and respect all people, to reach out and spread the word of God through the teachings and actions of Jesus Christ. It also teaches us about how we should treat people that come to us with false word .Those that live among us, near us, and in some cases they live in different countries.

In the second letter of John lines 10 and 11 John says:

If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house and do not give him any greeting,32 1:11 because the person who gives him a greeting shares in his evil deeds.33

In Paul's letter to Titus Chapter 2 lines 6-16 Paul says:

An elder must be blameless,6 the husband of one wife,7 with faithful children8 who cannot be charged with dissipation or rebellion. 1:7 For the overseer9 must be blameless as one entrusted with God’s work,10 not arrogant, not prone to anger, not a drunkard, not violent, not greedy for gain. 1:8 Instead he must be hospitable, devoted to what is good, sensible, upright, devout, and self-controlled. 1:9 He must hold firmly to the faithful message as it has been taught,11 so that he will be able to give exhortation in such healthy teaching12 and correct those who speak against it.

1:10 For there are many13 rebellious people, idle talkers, and deceivers, especially those with Jewish connections,14 1:11 who must be silenced because they mislead whole families by teaching for dishonest gain what ought not to be taught. 1:12 A certain one of them, in fact, one of their own prophets, said, "Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons."15 1:13 Such testimony is true. For this reason rebuke them sharply that they may be healthy in the faith 1:14 and not pay attention to Jewish myths16 and commands of people who reject the truth. 1:15 All is pure to those who are pure. But to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their minds and consciences are corrupted. 1:16 They profess to know God but with their deeds they deny him, since they are detestable, disobedient, and unfit for any good deed.

As you know the church does what it can to help them all, where ever they are, to learn about the true God. Priests travel around the world to serve the lord and spread the word. This job shouldn’t just be for the church leaders to do, because, our bible is not just for the church leaders, It is the job for all Christians to do. As the bible is, for all of us.

I know that we all work, that we have a life, bills, and children to worry about, but a very important point for us to grasp is, by just knowing Jesus’ message is not enough we must all do his actions and spread his word, so that we protect and guide his people, enlighten those who don’t know, so that we all will find ourselves with him in heaven.

It is our responsibility as the bible said to talk to those people that try to change and contradict God’s will and teaching.

It is our responsibility to stand against these people that live among us and talk to our children and say to them that Jesus is just a prophet and he is not the lord it is our responsibility to stand and move toward talking to these people that build their mosques near our schools and colleges in order to have a way to access our young men and women and spread their beliefs ( hateful beliefs ) among our children.

It is our responsibility to teach all, but especially our youth and those in hardship, that the true faith is found in our bible through Jesus Christ. So that where ever they may be in life, or whatever hardships they fall upon they will still be strong enough to keep their faith, know Jesus is always with them, and be able to recognize and refute falsehood when faced with it.

We cannot think in the mindset that our culture, government, or education system will effect or change their way of thinking. In just the state of New Jersey alone there are over 110 Islamic schools to teach them the way they should live according to the teaching of their religion.

The facts is a lot of people around the world are converting to Christianity in numbers around 15,000,000 a year are in Africa alone. Still we have to stand against those groups that are also growing in the millions, damaging our works by using lies and deception from their books. All the while acting warm, and welcoming, inviting people to join them. Never telling them that if they decide its not for them and they try and leave the belief they will be killed. As was the recent case with the guy from Afghanistan who converted to be Christian, and the Vatican got him an asylum to Italy or else he would have been killed according to Islamic law.

In the way it is important to bring our children to church and teach them the faith, it is also highly imperative to tell them what others will try and say against it, so that they will recognize falsehood and be fully prepared to be able to answer them with the true word of God. Just as we teach them to be careful from strangers and the tricks they try and play. I feel the church should address this issue and show the truth, in the same way we are doing with the Da Vinci Code, only I think this is a bigger issue. We are afraid this movie and book "might" effect people, Islam already is.

We as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ have to talk to those who are not believers and spread the word of God to them, and if they don’t take it, we must at least prepare our children and adults to understand what the truth is about their beliefs are before they start telling all the lies about it let me give you an example :

If some one killed a person and told you that God’s words in the bible said to kill !!! what would you think of that ??

For sure you know the truth , you know that God said you shall not kill, the fact is that Jesus said love your enemy

But as you watch the news every day we hear about these people killing in the name of God and you see them reading from their holy book while they are cutting somebody’s head. In the mean time their leaders come and say that their book doesn’t support that kind of crime and these radicals misunderstand our book ??

The question here is how did they understand it? Does their book say not to kill? and they read it kill? or their book says kill them all as I quote

(Fight against those who believe not in Allâh, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad (peace be upon him)) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

According to this translation that is quoted from their book the words change from the original languge from kill to fight against

Those are the people that their book says quote(And because of their saying (in boast), "We killed Messiah 'Isâ (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allâh," - but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of 'Isâ (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not (i.e. 'Isâ (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) (peace be upon them))

And the Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allâh. That is their saying with their mouths, resembling the saying of those who disbelieved aforetime. Allâh's Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!

O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors; they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.

[4] So, when you meet (in fight - Jihâd in Allâh's Cause), those who disbelieve, smite (their) necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islâm), until the war lays down its burden. Thus (you are ordered by Allâh to continue in carrying out Jihâd against the disbelievers till they embrace Islâm and are saved from the punishment in the Hell-fire or at least come under your protection), but if it had been Allâh's Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test some of you with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allâh, He will never let their deeds be lost.

This is some verses from their book and there are thousands more that encourage the believer of that book to lie and beat women and kill every non believer of their religion until all the world become believers for their religion. There is also much more in the Sunnah (what Mohammed had said to the people) and the Hadith which are the recordings of what had happened during his time by the people closest to him.

Mohammed himself had no respect for women. When Mohammed was 54 he married a girl six years old and waited till she turned 9 before he consummated the marriage. This all comes from their books and they are supposed to live their lives as he lived his, is this not child molestation?

Here is 1 verse of Qu'ran on how to treat women according to Gods word:

Chap.4 verse[34] Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them ; but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance): for Allah is Most High, Great (above you all).

I know many of you are thinking this cannot be right, you have had many Muslim friends that were very nice. This because not all Muslims know the real message of Islam. It was not until 9/11 that many eyes were opened. We see all these Muslims saying Islam is peaceful and loving, and yes there are verses that are peaceful, but they are few and far between and are meant for treatment from one Muslim to another. While all these terrorists are saying what they are doing is for the love of Islam. Maybe the terrorists are not extremists or radicals, but full practitioners of their faith. So I suggest do the research and see for yourself.

So it is up to us with the help of God to change those people and teach them the right way or at least teach ourselves more about there belief so neither we or our youth get fooled by their sweet talk about their belief in Jesus and their belief in one God and remember that God with the Holy Spirit works through us to teach others and do his will.

I hope the day comes that we start to learn about the bad things so we prevent the damage before it happens, not wait for the damage to happen then sit and wonder where were we when all this was happening.

May God help us, guide us and protect us, and Bless all. Amen

Re: Very interesting research on Islam-Mahdi-Antichrist & The Mark of the Beast
Besides Islams Mahdi there is also

The Dajjal: Islam’s Antichrist



The third primary character that dominates Islamic eschatology is a man whose full title is Al-Maseeh (The Messiah) Ad-Dajjal, (The Liar/Deceiver). Usually just referred to as the Dajjal, he is a bizarre character whose description and story seem far more fantastic than either the Mahdi or the Muslim Jesus. There are numerous hadith that contain descriptions of the Dajjal. Here we will just touch on the most common of these traditions to give an overview of just who this mysterious and strange person is.

The Great Deceiver

The Dajjal is described as being a deceiver who will have miraculous powers and who will temporarily hold power over the whole earth:

The Prophet was warning us that in the last days there would be someone who would deceive all of humanity. The Dajjal will possess power over this world. Thus, Muslims must be careful not to have the love of the world in their hearts so they won’t leave their religion and follow him. He will be able to heal the sick by wiping his hand on them, like Jesus did, but with this deceit the Dajjal will lead people down the path to hell. Thus the Dajjal is the false Messiah, or Anti-Christ (Massih ad-Dajjal). He will pretend to be the Messiah, and deceive people by showing them amazing powers.

Re: Very interesting research on Islam-Mahdi-Antichrist & The Mark of the Beast
The FALSE GOSPEL of ISLAM
By Ric Llewellyn

FOR CENTURIES, Christians have recognized Islam as a false religion. Until recently Muslims (or Mohammadans as they have been known in the past) have been the focus of evangelistic outreaches. But today many people are considering Islam from a more ecumenical point of view. It is often said that Christians, Jews, and Muslims are worshipping the same God, but in different ways. Muslims have capitalized on this misconception and now urge Christians and Jews to worship the one God with them, and work together for solutions to the world's many social problems. It is important to know some of the history and false doctrines of Islam, and to reject the new approach of this fast growing religion.

Islam began about 600 A.D. in what is modern Saudi Arabia. Muhammad, the "prophet" of Islam, received what is purported to be a revelation from God. This revelation is known as the Qur'an, the holy book of Islam. From its dubious beginnings, Islam has grown to approximately a billion adherents worldwide. For centuries Islam has exerted a great deal of influence over the people of the Middle East and Africa, even dominating southern Europe for a time. Today Islam is endeavoring once again to have a significant influence upon the culture and society of the Western World.

The new image Islam is trying to present in the West is a far cry from the fanaticism and violence advocated by many Muslim leaders. Nevertheless, the devotion of Muslims in the West to Islamic principles is as uncompromising as any in the world. The presentation of Islam in Europe and North America is characterized by intellectualism rather than emotionalism. The irrational religious frenzy by which Islam has become recognized worldwide is covered by a facade of civility. Yet, Muslims around the world concur that Islamic laws and principles take precedence over the decency and morality of civilization.

No matter how intellectual, civilized, or scientific Islam is made to appear, it is still a religion which embodies "another gospel.- which is not another" (Gal. 1:6-7). The Lord declares it accursed (Gal. 1:8). Christians must be prepared to present the one true Gospel of salvation to Muslims, desiring that they be delivered from their religious bondage.

The most important thing for Christians to know when confronted with the teachings of a false religion is the Truth. It cannot be too forcefully stated that Christians must know the Scriptures. In evangelism, therefore, we must know the Evangel.

Our message to Muslims is that they, like all men, are lost. All are naturally at enmity with God (Ps.14:2-3; Jn. 3:36b; Eph. 2:1-3). There is no good in us that can merit God's favor and there is no good we can do to endear ourselves to Him (Isa. 64:6; Rom. 3:12, 19-20; Titus 3:5). But, being lost and unable to effect our own salvation, God did all that is required to reconcile men to Himself. Christ bore our sin, died on the Cross shedding His Blood as a completely propitious sacrifice for sin, and He rose again bodily from the dead. Believing this testimony and wholly trusting Jesus Christ for salvation is all that is necessary to be saved (1 Cor. 15:1-41, Rom. 5: 1, 6-9; Col. 1:12-22; 2 Cor. 5:18-21).

The "gospel" of Islam is something quite different. Similar to many modern cults, Islam claims to revere the writings of all the prophets. Yet, Muslims unequivocally subjugate the Scriptures to the "prophecy" of Muhammad.

A leaflet prepared by the Institute of Islamic Information and Education titled "Introducing Islam to Non-Muslims" states, "Muhammad is the very last Prophet of God to mankind. He is the final Messenger of God. His message was and is still to the Christians, the Jews and the rest of mankind. He was sent to those religious people to inform them about the true mission of Jesus, Moses, David, Jacob, Isaac, and Abraham."

The leaflet continues, "Muhammad is considered to be the summation and the culmination of all the prophets and messengers that came before him. He purified the previous messages from adulteration and completed the Message of God for all humanity. He was entrusted with the power of explaining, interpreting and living the teachings of the Qur'an."

Believers must recognize that Joseph Smith (Mormonism), Charles T. Russell (Jehovah's Witnesses), Mary Baker Eddy (Christian Science), and Ellen G. White (Seventh Day Adventism) have all claimed that same transcendent authority. And along with these, Muhammad was the bearer of wicked doctrines that have plunged many into the outer darkness of eternal torment.

Among the insidious doctrines of Islam is the rejection of the doctrine of imputation. "Introducing Islam to Non-Muslims" explains, "Muslims believe that people are born free of sin. It is only after they reach the age of puberty, and it is only after they commit sins that they are to be charged for their mistakes. No one is responsible for or can take the responsibility for the sins of others."

First, this is a denial of the Biblical teaching that all mankind sinned in Adam, that is, Adam's sin has been imputed to the whole human race (Rom. 5.12-14). Second, this is a denial of the Biblical teaching that the sin of man is imputed to Christ, that is, Christ became sin for us on Calvary's Cross (2 Cor. 5:21). Third, this is a denial of the Biblical teaching that the righteousness of God is imputed to men upon believing, that is, believers possess the righteousness of God (2 Cor. 5:21;Rom. 5:15-19).By denying these truths which are fundamental to the Gospel of salvation by grace through faith alone, Islam has laid the groundwork for a "gospel" of self righteousness and salvation by works.

The Bible teaches that salvation is NOT a reward. Heaven is the eternal abode of those who have received Christ the Saviour. Islam teaches that salvation is indeed a reward for a life of relative piety and righteousness. The Qur'an states, "Then those whose scales are heavy, they are successful. And those whose scales are light are those who lose their souls…" In fact, Muslims are encouraged to "vie with one another to attain to your Sustainer's forgiveness and to a Paradise as vast as the heavens and the earth, which awaits the God-conscious, who spend for charity in time of plenty and in time of hardship, and restrain their anger, and pardon their fellow men, for God loves those who do good."

From these denials of fundamental Biblical teachings and the establishment of a religion of self righteousness follows the Islamic repudiation of the Saviour. The following is so important to Islam that it was printed in very bold type in the leaflet "Prophethood in Islam"--"The Quranic account of Jesus emphatically rejects the concept of his 'Divinity' and 'Divine Sonship…" The Institute of Islamic Information and education publishes a leaflet entitled "Is Jesus Really God?" In it they totally reject the Biblical teaching that Jesus is God manifest in the flesh.

Nevertheless, the Word is plain: "God was manifest in the flesh" (1 Tim. 3:16). Jesus is the self existent I AM (Jn. 8:58). The Creator dwelled as a man among men (Jn. 1:1-3, 14). Jesus Christ is the Forgiver of sin (Lk. 5.20-21). In short, the Son and the Father are one (Jn. 10:30). The Lord Jesus Christ said to the religious of His day who rejected His deity, :... if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins" (Jn. 8:24).

Islam unashamedly rejects these truths which comprise the Gospel. While many people today say that Christians and Muslims worship the "Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, HATH NOT GOD" (2 Jn.9). An even greater condemnation is pronounced by God in verse seven. Denying the doctrine of Christ reveals Islam as a deception and an antichrist religion. The Qur'an has substituted false doctrines which present another gospel. Islam purports to be "the way of peace," but the end of Islam is the way of death. Bible-believers must not yield these eternally important points merely because Islam claims to esteem the patriarchs and the prophets. It is our responsibility to testify to the Truth, even as we cry out against the error of any false religion.

It is important for God's people to be aware of the fact that many so-called Christians are willing to compromise the Truth of God's Word in the interest of building bridges with various religions. Islam seems to be asserting itself in the area of religious dialogue, and men and women who claim to represent Christianity are quickly building the credibility of Islam as a true religion. Instead of witnessing, Christians are encouraged to discover common ground with Muslims. Rather than exposing its errors, Christians are told to search for the truth in Islam. Thus, Islam is gaining a respectability that is simply not deserved.

While "Christians" are manifesting their "open mindedness," Muslims are spreading their false religious propaganda under the cover of dialogue. Muslims believe that all mankind must be brought into subjection to the spurious teachings of the Qur'an in order to experience peace and blessing. They will not compromise that belief. Muslims believe that the doctrine of the Incarnation of God is blasphemy. They will not compromise that belief. Muslims believe that Muhammad is the prophet who fully revealed the final truth. They will not compromise that belief. Muslims are "devoted to their ideals,... and uncompromising with falsehood" ("Moral System of Islam"). Only the glorious, liberating light of the one true Gospel will be able to break through such darkness.

Although those who practice Islam profess "to respect all those who are faithful and God conscious people," it is their contention that the one true religion is Islam. Muslims trace the "true religion" from Abraham through Ishmael, but the Bible absolutely contradicts this notion. Genesis 17:15-21 makes it clear that God rejected Ishmael, confirming the covenant blessings--including the fulfillment of the true religion to Isaac alone. In chapter 21 Hagar and Ishmael are cast out of Abraham's house with the sanction of God, "Let it not be grievous in thy sight" (v. 12).

Galatians chapter three deals with this subject of the true religion and directly references the events of Genesis 17 and 2 1. Galatians 3:8 says, "And the scripture, farseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed." The promise of salvation for Jew and Gentile was prophesied to come through the seed of Abraham. Verse 16 clearly relates the true religion, the only Gospel, to the promise made to Abraham in Genesis 17:15-21: "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. [God] saith not, And to seeds, as of many, but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ." The Gospel preached to Abraham was the Gospel of Christ delivered through Isaac, not the gospel of Islam delivered through Ishmael.

Islam claims to be a religion of peace and tolerance. It is, in fact, characterized by instability and religious bigotry. It is our duty to stand for the Gospel and against all other gospels. Islam has rejected the essential teachings of the Word of God. The "prophet" Muhammad brought a message from a false spirit that totally opposes the Gospel of grace. The message of Islam is a curse, not a blessing.

Islam is being presented as a practical, modern religion though it holds its adherents in spiritual bondage. Christians must be diligent to witness to-not dialogue with Muslims. This is God's way of presenting the glorious light of the Gospel. There is only one true religion. It was prophesied in the Garden of Eden, typified in the days of Noah, confirmed to Abraham and Isaac, and realized in Jesus Christ.
