The coming time of trouble isn’t at all like most christians had anticipated. With all the prophecy buffs out there, with different ideas of who they think the antichrist will be, I think that the answer is right before our eyes. 1 John 2 talks of what the biblical description of the antichrist is.
1 John 2:16 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming,….v22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
There you have it, the doctrine of the antichrist, and the doctrine of Islam.
Jesus talks about just before His return..Luke 21:20 20“When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near.
Who in the world wants to surround Israel more than Islam? The Ishmaelite’s, Arabs, Moabites, Ammonites, Egyptians, Assyrians and edomites to name a few have always been at odds with Israel even before they were muslims. Now they are united together under Islam. All of Jacobs enemies are islamic now and are fighting to take away the inheritance that God gave Isaac. They have enormous amounts of wealth in oil but somehow begrudge Gods blessing Isaac.
It is so true that the descendants of Ishmael would be against his brothers just as God predicted. To those paying attention its easy to see the Islamic antichrist taking form today. No other group fulfills prophecy like Islam does. But God says to stay faithful even to the point of death.
God is faithful. He knows those who are His and is able to keep them from falling.
James 1:12Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
