Satan was created as a holy angel. Satan’s pride led to his fall… Satan has become the ruler of this world and the prince of the power of the air…
John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Satan Mimics Everything God Does, He uses everything to Deceive people, and that includes Religion,
and His Judgment will be Final and Sealed forever…
The Mysterious Role of Islam in the End Times..
The Bible prophesies that God will draw the nations encompassing Israel to their destruction. He will focus His wrath on these nations in a series of battles from the Psalm 83 War, to the Gog-Magog War of Ezekiel 38-39, to the setting up of the Antichrist’s kingdom which shockingly destroys one-fourth of the world’s population (Revelation 6). The aftermath of these three wars can only result in the Islamic world having been annihilated at the onset of the Tribulation. God’s wrath upon the Islamic world for their hatred of Israel — the “apple of His eye” — will be fulfilled (Zechariah 2:8).

I’ve thought that too – much of Islam would be destroyed by God in Ezekiel 38-39 (& Ps 83, as above, but I primarily focused on Ezekiel’s vision). So – how does it come about that some think the Antichrist is of Islam? I find it hard to conceptualize that Israel could consider – even remotely – that a Muslim is their Messiah. (I’ve heard this theory, but haven’t read the material that explains it, because I can’t get past this question.)March 1, 2017 at 7:13 am #128927

As Daniel 12:4 says Knowledge will increase in the End Times… We now have more knowledge now at our finder tips than any generations ever…
Dan 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
I am not completely sold out to a Islamic antichrist… I do see it as it was in the days of Noah in Genesis 6…
The Rapture is going to change everything, the antichrist will make his first Biblical appearance in Revelation 6:2, and is disguised as the man on the white horse, he is Mimicking Jesus The Messiah… He will have Super Natural Powers to Deceive all of mankind…
There will be NO True Christians on Earth at the very Beginning of the Trib right after the Rapture.. I can Speculate Once they all see these millions of People disappear, Things are going to Super Naturally Change into the Next events… Most all The False Religions and many Billions around the world will know what just took place…
The questions is will they except what they just witnessed, or, see it as deception, what they have been told by True Christians… These folks don’t have the Holy Spirit in them like we do now…
As I see it as a Pre Trib Believer, The Church is Raptured out at Revelation 4:1
I think and feel like the Book of Revelation is pretty much written in chronological order, but there are exceptions to this, John has a really hard time keeping up with everything, there’s too much happening for John to explain it all at once, because he can only talk about one thing at a time…
When is the Bottomless Pit Opened up in this chronological order, to me it’s at the Beginning, and it’s around this same time the Two Witnesses show up and the 144,000 Super Naturally Protected Billy Graham’s …
Israel is looking for Elijah to come back in the Flesh…
On the basis of these theological inferences, then, we understand that Elijah will be brought back from the dead (like Lazarus and several others) to mortal life, and to die again three-and-one-half years later (Rev. 11:3-13). In Bible times God raised some people from the dead after only a few hours, and Lazarus after four days (when it was evident to everyone that his body was decomposing [John 11:39]). The main point at issue here, however, is that God is not limited by time or by the availability of any part of a person’s physical body in order to perform the miracle of glorious resurrection, or even the miracle of resuscitation/restoration to mortal life.
We read in 1 Corinthians 15:38 that God gives “to each seed its own body,” and “that which you sow [in death and burial], you do not sow that body that shall be.” This is the basic reality of all resurrections. On the human level, we might describe it this way: God knows the unique “blueprint” or “DNA information code” of every human being, and is perfectly capable of giving a person a glorified body, and even another mortal body (complete with the original sin nature) after thousands of years.
Elijah and Moses
Yes, Elijah is coming back to this earth again, and he will not come alone as he did at the beginning of his first ministry
“And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”
We know that when the first 4 seals are opened up at least 1/3 of mankind will die,
The sixth chapter of Revelation brings us to the beginning of the judgments of the wrath of God. Folks at this point will either except God’s Offer OR they will be Killed for not taking the mark of the Beast…
I use to tell this when I got a chance to witness, what if the Bible is true and you die today, what will you lose when you die…? You cannot afford to be wrong… Can Angels Kill men, well yes they can and have and it will happen again…
2Ki 19:34 For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.
2Ki 19:35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.
2Ki 19:36 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.
Satan is a Fallen Angel, who masquerades as an angel of light, Even Islam is going to fall for this Lie…
God can and does use angels to accomplish certain things. What we don’t know for sure is how often angels allow themselves to be seen by people. This want be the case during the Time of Jacobs Trouble…
God is going to take off the reins and lets deceit have its way among men until it reaches a climax of delusion
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12…
Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
and magnify himself above every god This Little god is Translated
Plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative: – angels, X exceeding, God (gods) (-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty.
Total KJV occurrences: 2601
This planetary rule of the one world government will be run by the antichrist, then Satan himself… Guess how much power he has when God turns him a loose…?
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved… 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
Islam, Nor any other Religion at this time is not going to survive The Tribulation,
it will be about one Fallen Angel…
Men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of
those things which are coming on the earth…” Luke 21:26.
He will Deceive the whole world into believing He is Christ…
At the 35:00 minute mark he says it, he will be the redeemer of Israel and The 12th Imam and the whole world..
The Return of the 12th Imam
As Chuck said this is at the first seal…

Commentaries for Rev 6:1
~March 1, 2017 at 7:58 pm #128943
I saw this post yesterday and wanted to respond almost immediately. However, it has been a hectic couple of days at work and I am just now getting the time to compose this reply.
Not sure how many here have ever studied in depth the end-time beliefs of the Muslims. I am by no means an expert, but when I dug into this a bit over the past year or two, it was astounding to me. I suppose I should not be surprised, as Satan has always attempted to counterfeit everything that the Lord does. Nevertheless, I must admit I found it to be jaw-dropping.
Before I share with you my understanding of the CliffsNotes version, let me define two key terms that I will use. Without these distinctions, this might get a bit confusing, which I guess should also not be surprising given that confusion is one of Satan’s modus operandi. When I use the word “real”, it will denote the true Biblical version of whomever I am calling real. When I use the term “Muslim”, it is denoting the false, counterfeit version of what I am describing. OK, with that said, let’s take a run at this.
In the Bible, we have three main figures at the end. 1) The Lord Jesus, who is the real Messiah of Israel returning to establish His Kingdom on earth, 2) the real Antichrist, who commits the abomination of desolation and leads the world government at the end, and 3) the real False Prophet who, among other things, does many signs to deceive the multitudes, supports the real Antichrist, and forces all men to take the mark of the beast.
In the Muslim version of end-time events, there are also, not surprisingly, three primary characters. 1) The Mahdi, also know as the 12th Imam, who is the foretold Muslim “Savior”. This person is the real Antichrist, but the Muslims will view him as their long-awaited savior who is prophesied to show up in the last days. He is the Muslim Messiah, not the real Messiah. 2) The Muslim Antichrist, also called the Dajjal. In the deceived eyes of the Muslims, this is them viewing the real Messiah as the Muslim Antichrist. They think our true Jesus (the ultimate “Good Guy”) is their Dajjal (their ultimate “Bad Guy”). 3) The Muslim Jesus, who completes the third role of the counterfeit end-time scenario. This guy will be the real False Prophet, but the Muslims will view him as the Muslim Prophet Jesus. He is also known among Muslims as Isa. They apparently believe he never died and will return to earth at the right time at the end of time. They do not believe he died and was resurrected and they do not believe he is God. This Muslim Jesus is the real False Prophet.
Are you seeing what the devil has done here? There is already an elaborate counterfeit and completely inverted foundational paradigm in place within the Muslim teachings that will take the Muslims down the path of deception in an unfathomable way during the final days of earth as we know it. When they are gathered to fight against the Dajjal, who is the real Jesus but who the Muslims will be convinced is the Muslim Antichrist, they will literally be fighting God while thinking they are fighting the Muslim Antichrist. Let that sink in. They are fighting against the real Christ, but deceived into thinking they are fighting the foretold Muslim Antichrist!!
I do not pretend to know for certain what role the Muslims will play during Daniel’s 70th week, and particularly at the end of the week when our King of Kings and Lord of Lords returns on HIS white horse to crush His enemies at Armageddon. I know many scholars and, I think, some on this website tend to think that the Muslims will be defeated and essentially be inconsequential before the real Jesus returns. That may be right. However, when I ponder what I have stated above and the other bits of research I have done, it is hard for me to think that the Muslims will not factor into the end times in some very significant way. I am not dogmatic about it, and it is certainly a non-essential point of doctrine, but I just have a hard time thinking that the insidious counterfeit I just described above is not a part of the last days scenario. Just my two cents.
John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."
