How Close Is The World To Welcoming the Antichrist?
Christians should be acutely aware of the political chess game the European Union is playing to introduce to the world its false Messiah and Antichrist. To accomplish this they need to lay the foundation for a false peace between the Arabs and Israel. Yeshua Hamashiach once said:
I am come in my Father’s name, and ye (Israel) receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. (John 5:43)
He said this in reference to the false Messiah, also know as Antichrist. If there is one thing Israel longs for it is to live in peace with her neighbouring countries. And yet, despite Israel’s continuous and relentless efforts to bring about peace in the Middle East, Islam is bent on her total destruction and the world looks on in total apathy. Even the great Satan (as Islam calls America) is playing the deadly Judas game with Israel. In an article “America’s Policy Towards Israel Officially Shifts” on the official site of “The Berean Call” the following eye-opening news item appeared:
The New York Times Makes It Official: Obama Has Shifted U.S. Policy Against Israel [Excerpts]
The New York Times officially proclaimed the administration’s changed attitude in a front-page story [April 14, 2010] that ought to send chills down the spine of anyone who believed Barack Obama when he pledged in 2008 that he would be a loyal friend of Israel.
In the view of the paper’s Washington correspondents, the moment that signalled what had already been apparent to anyone who was paying attention was the president’s declaration at a Tuesday news conference that resolving the Middle East conflict was “a vital national security interest of the United States.” Mr Obama went on to state that the conflict is “costing us significantly in terms of blood and treasure,” thus attempting to draw a link between Israel’s attempts to defend itself with the safety of American troops who are fighting Islamist terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere in the world. By claiming the Arab-Israeli conflict to be a “vital national security interest” that must be resolved, the “frustrated” Obama is making it clear that he will push hard to impose a solution on the parties.
The significance of this false argument is that it not only seeks to wrongly put the onus on Israel for the lack of a peace agreement but that it also now attempts to paint any Israeli refusal to accede to Obama’s demands as a betrayal in which a selfish Israel is stabbing America in the back. The response from Obama to this will be, the Times predicts, “tougher policies toward Israel,” since it is, in this view, ignoring America’s interests and even costing American lives.
The problem with this policy is that the basic premise behind it is false. Islamists may hate Israel, but that is not why they are fighting the United States. They are fighting America because they rightly see the West and its culture, values, and belief in democracy as antithetical to their own beliefs and a threat to its survival and growth as they seek to impose their medieval system everywhere they can. Americans are not dying because Israelis want to live in Jerusalem or even the West Bank or even because there is an Israel. If Israel were to disappear tomorrow, that catastrophe would certainly be cheered in the Arab and Islamic world, but it would not end the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan, cause Iran to stop its nuclear program, or put al-Qaeda out of business. In fact, a defeat for a country allied with the United States would strengthen Iran and al-Qaeda.
But undeterred by the facts and the experience of a generation of failed peace plans that have always foundered not on Israeli intransigence but rather on the absolute refusal of any Palestinian leader to put his signature on a document that will legitimize a Jewish state within any borders, Obama is pushing ahead.
The Islamitization of Europe AND America is escalating at an alarming rate and the most obvious reason why it is happening is that many of the so-called leaders who smugly sit in their respective governments are a bunch of yellow livered cowards who are eager to betray their own families and countrymen for ill-gained booty (Read the article below titled “Kick Me: European Union Backs Iran’s Hezbollah”).
Wafa Sultan, an ex Muslim, firmly believes that the Western countries’ leaders have deliberately coined the phrases “moderate Islam” and “peaceful Islam” and not the Muslims themselves. About 6 minutes and 52 seconds into the video she says
I don’t believe there is a radical Islam. I truly believe the term “radical Islam” is a Western trademark. The West invented this term for the sake of being politically correct. Growing up in Syria I had never heard of radical Islam, . . . militant Islam or political Islam. I heard only of one Islam, the normal Islam.
In Wafa Sultan’s opinion Islam is not moderate and neither is it peaceful. If this is true, then we may assume without any reasonable doubt that Islam could never have infiltrated the European and American societies to the degree that it has if it hadn’t been for the eager assistance of corrupt and cowardly Western leaders. Wafa Sultan may just be correct when you listen to the following insipid statements by George Bush and Barak Obama.
What lies at the root of the Western leaders’ apathetic refusal to declare Islam a violent and dangerous religion when Muslim leaders themselves admit that it is just that? We may sum up the answer in three words – New World Order. It was George Bush’s dad who was one of the first Western leaders to promulgate the New World Order.
Note carefully, Bush said:
Let us comfort the families of the fallen and remember each precious life lost. Let us learn from them as well. Let us honour those who have served us by serving others. Let us honour them as individuals, men and women of every race, all creeds and colours, by setting the face of this nation against discrimination, bigotry and hate—eliminate them”
You may have noticed that he did not say “by setting the face of the nation against Islamic terrorism.” How is the American government comforting the families of the soldiers who have given their lives for the safety of their country in the battle of Desert Storm and so many other anti-terrorist battles? Well, they do it by defending Islam, which is supposed to be a “peaceful” religion, against the American constitution by disallowing Christians to spread the Gospel among Muslims. The American cops in the video you are about to watch were merely doing what their counterparts in Muslim countries are doing and that is to forbid anyone to build a Christian church, spread the Gospel, own a Bible and pray in the Name of Jesus. Now that’s what I call the rule of law (sharia law) in America. Wake up America! Your country is under siege.
One of the most terrifying things that Americans could expect from a second term of Barack Obama is not the economic downturn that we are already experiencing. It’s not another ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal. Rather it appears that more and more the Obama administration, specifically the Department of Justice, is turning a blind eye to attempts to introduce aspects of sharia law into the legal system . . . William Bigelow writes,
Last October, at George Washington University, there was a meeting between DOJ officials, including Perez, and Islamist advocates against free speech. Representatives from the Islamist side included Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding trial in 2008, as well as functioning as a Muslim Brotherhood Front. The leader of the Islamist attack was Sahar Aziz, an Egyptian-born American lawyer and Fellow at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, a Muslim advocacy group based in Michigan. At the meeting, the Islamists lobbied for:
- Cutbacks in U.S. anti-terror training
- Limits on the power of terrorism investigators
- Changes in agent training manuals
- A legal declaration that criticism of Islam in the United States should be considered racial discrimination
Aziz said that the word “Muslim” has become “radicalized” and, once American criticism of Islam was silenced, the effect would be to “take [federal] money away from local police departments and fusion centres who are spying on all of us.”
I believe that the Antichrist is already here (although he cannot reveal himself presently to the world because of what we learn from Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:6-8). Nonetheless, I believe that he is already secretly and covertly manipulating world politics, especially in Europe, to facilitate his rise to world domination. Christians ought to know this because the Word of God prophesied these events centuries ago in the Book of Daniel.
And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences (dark trickery and craftiness) shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. (Daniel 8:23-25) (Emphasis added)
I have emboldened “and by peace shall destroy many” for the following reason. Destruction, mayhem and bloodshed are all associated with war and never with peace. The entire world and particularly Israel are yearning and pining for peace. Evidently everyone’s yearning after peace will give the Antichrist a head start in his ploy to bring peace in the Middle East and throughout the world. How is this false peace going to be accomplished? The well-known saying “create a crisis and offer the solution” applies here. I’m no prophet but I foresee that Islam and it’s violent religion are going to establish their sharia laws throughout Europe, America, Russia and Africa, with, of course, the assistance of corrupt Western politicians. This in turn will provide the perfect platform from whence a multitude of terrorist attacks could be launched against Israel. Could it be that these attacks would eventually lead to a situation where a man of “fierce countenance and devious trickery” will arise and say: “Brothers and sisters, let us end these perpetual wars and killings. There is no need for any more of this. Let us take hands and move on to a New World Order of peace, tranquillity, safety and prosperity. I am the long awaited Messiah for Jews, Muslims and Christians.” On one of the official websites of thethe following interesting information is given:
Maitreya’s Genealogy to King David and Prophet Muhammad
In four of the great religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Bahá’í) there is an expectation that the Messiah should come from the lineage of King David and Prophet Muhammad (a Sayyed). This is obvious in Judaism as Christians have already tried to connect Christ’s genealogy to King David. In Christianity, the Messiah is prophesied as The Lion of the Tribe of Judah (which King David also was from – Judah) who will open the the Book Sealed with the Seven Seals (Revelation 5:5 and 6). In Islam, it is Prophesied that the Mahdi (their Expected One) will be from the lineage of Prophet Muhammad, as do the Bahá’ís. He will be born as a Sayyed, as a descendent of Prophet Muhammad through His daughter Fatima and His son-in-law Ali, the fourth Imam of Islam.
As you can see, this is a false Messiah and one who fits perfectly into the mould of the one described in Daniel 8. A question you may want to ask is: What significance does a little peace of land in the Middle East have for the world who has turned its back on a nation who has been persecuted for centuries? One thing we need to understand is that the battle in the East is not about a nation and its fight for survival. It is a battle between God and Satan which began before the foundation of the world and even long before the birth of any religion on earth, including Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Satan doesn’t care a hoot whether you’re a Jew, a Christian or a Muslim or anything else for that matter. He is a murderer who is bent on killing anyone to satisfy his lust for lost souls and to take them to hell with him. The Bible says he knows that his time is short and will do everything in his power to destroy mankind who is made in the image of God. Nonetheless, he is waging a losing battle. He cannot win because Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God has already triumphed over him while his hands and feet were nailed to a cursed tree. This is precisely why Jesus warns mankind:
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28)[antichirst]
