The Scriptural Evidence for a Revived Islamic Caliphate

Beautiful day, friends, and thank you for taking the time to visit my ministry.

It is with passionate joy that I let you know I have just finished improving upon my initial, foundational research which was part of my original motivation for creating this ministry. These foundational 6 articles are available for you to revisit or review. I have included the links below.

Christ Battles the Nations of the Earth Upon His ReturnP2ALM is the culmination of a few years of research that started with a particular challenge set forth in an article by an ex-Muslim who is now a Christian, Walid Shoebat. His challenge was this: can you name any nations in Scripture that the Lord does battle with upon His Return that are not currently Muslim nations? I was intrigued by this and so it began.

When it comes to God’s Word, I’m not interested in anything that isn’t true. I have placed myself in a position to be a source of truth for people and I want you to know that I did it through prayer, study, counsel and patience.  Since 2008, there have been a great many books and resources I’ve wanted to read about the subject that I’ve been putting off only until the last 3 months in order to prayerfully see if God would bring me to the same conclusions in Scripture before I went around telling people something that might not be correct. I want you to know these things because it’s my way of showing you I have no selfish motives and that I truly appreciate your reader support.

Foundational Research:

  1. Declaring the End from the Beginning – the Tower of Babel and it’s relevance to Prophecy
  2. Will the Revived Kingdom Really Be Rome? – the Apostle John eliminates Rome as the future revived kingdom
  3. Daniel’s 4th Beast Isn’t Rome – a contextual examination of Daniel’s 4th beast with an illustration of King Neb’s statue
  4. Beware the King of the North in Daniel 11 – Daniel reveals the geographic location of the Antichrist’s future kingdom
  5. The Antichrist: European Aristocrat or Middle Eastern Muslim? Part 1 – a historic examination of Daniel 9:26 points us to a revived Islamic Caliphate
  6. The Antichrist: European Aristocrat or Middle Eastern Muslim? Part 2 – examines various peripheral Scripture concerning the ethnicity of the Antichrist

You can find each of these articles on my home page under “Recommended Reading” in the column to the right. I also suggest you visit these articles under “Eye Openers”.

  1. Middle Eastern gentiles excited about the coming of the Biblical Antichrist – a look at commentary captured from youtube with definitions of terms explaining the fascinating similarities and differences of Christian and Islamic Prophecy
  2. The identity of the Antichrist’s kingdom: Arrive at the conclusion Scripture is leading us to – identifying the 7th Biblical World Kingdom is the key to identifying the future, revived empire

I encourage you to print them out and read them on your own time and, as always, I look forward to any questions or discussion generated. You can either leave a comment or send me an e.mail. My address can be found here.

Fealty to Christ,

  1. I was reading Revalation an it never hit me befor about the letters to the7 churches they are all in Turkey why those churches

    • I believe that is a geographical clue to where the kingdom of the Antichrist will really rise — the Middle East. And God has been shaking up the Middle East since the Arab spring to accomplish this.

  2. Is this Islamic caliphate a second a revived kingdom that fell or a new kingdom all together? I only ask because if this will be a revived caliphate, then will it be the old ottoman empire? That was my understanding of what was being revealed. I also have a fear of sorts, of telling someone something that is false or untrue. I could never forgive myself for leading someone astray. The ottoman empire makes sense due to it having been a kingdom that was not as powerful as recent world powers that controlled most of that area but, was rising very quickly. Without the crusades they quite possibly would have destroyed a lot of the western culture that was also rising up around the sane time frame. Again I ask because I want to make sure that I an understanding this correctly. God BLESS you dear friend and truly I hope more will stand up for the TRUTH! GOD bless America!

    • I was toying with the idea of a new Ottoman Empire being the revived kingdom for a while, and it may very well revive, but I don’t think it fits the biblical description of the revived kingdom. There’s one key piece of information John gives us that I feel is often overlooked by people whether they are arguing for a revived Roman Empire or Ottoman Empire.

      In the Book of Revelation, John tells us there are seven biblical world kingdoms that will rule on the earth throughout time with one making an end-time, repeat appearance as an eighth ruled by the Antichrist. This is where we get the idea of a revived kingdom.

      // Revelation 17:9-11 NASB [9] ”Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, [10] and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. [11] “The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction.

      // Revelation 13:3 NASB I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast;

      John says the Antichrist’s end-time kingdom is the eighth of these kingdoms, a “revived” version of one of the seven previous. How can we know which of the seven it is? With a little biblical math, we can find an answer.

      // …they are seven kings; five have fallen… [10]

      The “five [that] have fallen,” meaning previous to John, are generally agreed upon as:

      1. Egypt
      2. Assyria
      3. Babylon
      4. Medo-Persia
      5. Greece

      // …one is… [10]

      The “one [that] is,” meaning at the time of his writing, is Rome.

      6. Rome

      // …the other has not yet come… [10]

      The other, the one that is future to John, had “not yet come” at the time of his writing.

      7. Future to John

      So, these are the seven we have to choose from:

      1. Egypt
      2. Assyria
      3. Babylon
      4. Medo-Persia
      5. Greece
      6. Rome
      7. Future to John

      Can we narrow it down a little more? Yes.

      // The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven… [11]

      John says the beast (the Antichrist and his kingdom) “which was and is not,” meaning not at the time of his writing, is the eighth.
      Which biblical world kingdoms were previous to John, but were not at the time of his writing? The first five. This means we can eliminate six and seven from the list.

      6. Rome
      7. Future to John

      That leaves these five for us to choose from:

      1. Egypt
      2. Assyria
      3. Babylon
      4. Medo-Persia
      5. Greece

      THE QUESTION: Which one of these five biblical world kingdoms is mentioned in the Book of Revelation by name as being destroyed at the time of the end? This is the one that is to be revived.
