Amazing Bible and Islamic Prophecy Parallels - Part 1 -- Plus Easter Moments Countdown Days 35 & 34

In my post on February 19, What Legacy Are You Leaving Behind?, I mentioned the DVD End Times Eyewitness. My friend, Walt, loaned me his copy of this DVD and I found much of the information absolutely amazing. The parallels between Bible prophecy and Islamic prophecy astounded me. (Tweet that!)

This information is new to me, so I'm assuming it will be new to many Christians. (Tweet that!) I feel it's important for Christians (and others) to be aware of and informed about what Muslims are saying and believing about these End Times. (Tweet that!) So today I'm starting a series of posts to relate some information from this important DVD.

The DVD is by Joel Richardson, author of the book The Islamic Antichrist, and was produced by WND Films (WorldNetDaily.com).

You know? I truly hate to date myself with the phrase, "I remember when..." But truly, it wasn't that long ago that I remember when popular thought from Bible prophecy geeks and Bible scholars was that the Antichrist would come out of the revived Roman empire. (Tweet that!) I remember prophecy leaders talking about the possibility that the Antichirst could come out of Great Britain. There were even discussions of Prince Charles, who was born the same year as Israel (1948), and the red dragon on the back of the throne and did it have meaning in light of the prophecies in the Bible book of Revelation about the Red Dragon?

There have been many, many theories about the Antichrist and who he may be. And I don’t think that’s wrong because we are supposed to be watching and trying to figure it all out so we will not be caught unaware or unprepared. But my how times have changed.

I have always believed that more about prophecy would become clear as the coming of Jesus approaches. I believe the closer we get the more clearly we'll be able to see how Bible prophecies will be fulfilled. Now that I'm learning about Islamic prophecies, it's amazingly clear how the evil one, Satan, might be working to try to usurp the Bible's End Times prophecies and put himself in the place of Jesus Christ.

We've talked about the End Times Bible prophecy of false prophets appearing and deceiving many people. Please keep that in mind as you read this series of posts.

I'd like you to hear it from Joel Richardson himself. In his DVD, this is what Mr. Richardson says:

Joel Richardson speaking on his DVD:

“Another major sign that Jesus warned of with regard to the last days would be the rise of false prophets. Today, throughout the Islamic world, in the nations that surround Israel, there is a dramatic rise in Messianic expectation. 
“According to Islamic theology, Muslims are expecting, in the last days, two primary Messiah figures. The first individual they call the Mahdi. In Iran they call him the 12th Imam. The Mahdi is essentially a religious, military, political leader that comes in the last days to cause all the world to convert to Islam. 
“The second individual that Muslims are looking for is Isa Al-Massi [sp?] or Jesus Christ. Muslims teach that when Jesus comes back, he comes back as a Muslim to tell all the people of the world, including Christians, that he never died on the cross. He never claimed to be the Son of God. That Islam is the only true religion. And that all people should convert to Islam and submit to the Mahdi."

The Bible gives this prophecy concerning the Antichrist:

The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world. (Revelation 13:5-8

Please stop by for the next post where we'll learn more about the amazing parallels between the prophecies in the Bible and Islamic prophecy.

Tweet these:

Mahdi is a Muslim religious, military, political leader in #LastDays who causes all people to convert to Islam. (Tweet it.)

Muslims teach when #Jesus comes back he will tell the world he never died on the cross or claimed to be #SonofGod, (Tweet it!)

Muslims teach when Jesus comes back, he will tell all the world he never died on the cross, claimed to be Son of God, that Islam is the true religion, and all people should convert to Islam. (Tweet it.)

  1. You may wish to read 'God's War on Terror' for an in-depth look at this angle for end times.

    1. Thank you. Looks like that book was published back in 2008. Written by Walid Shoebat and Joel Richardson. https://smile.amazon.com/Gods-War-Terror-Islam-Prophecy/dp/0977102181?_encoding=UTF8&keywords=god%27s%20war%20on%20terror&qid=1484854145&ref_=sr_1_1&s=books&sr=1-1

  2. If the Islamization of Europe continues to progress at the rate it has been, then the Antichrist could very well be both Islamic and European, possibly a future president of the EU. If Turkey joins the EU then that scenario becomes even more plausible.

    1. Yes, the way Islam is taking over Europe is alarming, isn't it? Thanks for the insight, William. Interesting thoughts.
