Did you know that Islam has end-time prophecy? Did you know it tells of a figure who will rise to power and attempt to rule the world with the help of another figure, both of whom will be empowered and given authority by an infamous, supernatural being? Did you know these same figures are also mentioned in Christian prophecy? Did you know Islamic end-time prophecy is the exact opposite of Christian end-time prophecy?
Below is an Islamic video on the Muslim teaching of the final showdown between Christ and the Antichrist. Before you watch the video it would be helpful to learn some vocabulary. Islamic end-time prophecy has an Antichrist figure just like Christian end-time prophecy. It calls him the Dajjal. But in Islam, the Antichrist figure, or the Dajjal, will return and fight for Israel against the invading Muslims. Who does the Dajjal sound like to you?
The Dajjal is Islam’s Antichrist figure. According to Islam, the Dajjal will return and claim to be Jesus Christ. He’ll claim to be divine and He’ll fight for Israel. The Dajjal is actually the biblical Jesus Christ who returns as the King of kings. When the video refers to the Dajjal, or the Antichrist, it is really referring to the biblical Jesus Christ.
The Mahdi is Islam’s awaited messiah. Muslims believe he will come to help them defeat the Christians and the Jews at the time of the end. He will attempt to rule the entire world. The Mahdi is the biblical Antichrist.
Isa is Islam’s Jesus figure. Muslims believe Jesus was a great prophet but they do not believe He was the Son of God or Savior of the world. The Muslim Jesus will “return” and deny he ever said he was God. He will join together with the Mahdi. He will teach people about Islam and eventually direct people to worship the Mahdi. He is obviously not the real Jesus. The Muslim Jesus is the biblical False Prophet.
Read through these again if you have to and then watch the video.
Did you notice when it said that Isa, the biblical False Prophet or fake Jesus, will “break the Cross” (@ 10:03)?
It’s also interesting to note that the video refers to Gog and Magog as the people and the areas outside of Islam when in fact, Magog is in Turkey. Has this kind of thinking crept even into the way Christians interpret Bible prophecy? I think so.
The two perspectives
This can be confusing at first, so let’s look at it again. Just remember that Islam teaches the exact opposite of Christianity.
The Islamic perspective: The Dajjal will return and fight for Israel against Islam but he will be defeated by the Mahdi who is Islam’s Messiah figure.
The Christian perspective: Jesus Christ will return and fight for Israel against Islam and he will defeat the Antichrist.
According to the Bible, who is the Dajjal?
According to the Bible, who is the Mahdi?
In Islam, the Mahdi and Isa are in league with Allah.
In Christianity, the Antichrist and the False Prophet are in league with Satan.
Who does that make Allah?
Don’t believe me, Church? Good! Look it up for yourself. Research it. Wrap your mind around it. We all need to wake up and stop looking in Europe for something that is never going to happen because we’re missing a great deal of prophecy right now and we’re much farther along than we think. The conflict has always been between Sarah and Hagar through Isaac and Ishmael and their descendants [Genesis 16]. It’s being played out today in front of us and won’t be resolved until Christ’s return.
Just as the Jews are God’s chosen people, the Middle Eastern gentiles are Satan’s chosen people. Just as Jesus Christ came from the line of Isaac, the Antichrist will come through the line of Ishmael from where Islam came.
The one-eyed Dajjal
Interestingly, the Dajjal, Islam’s Antichrist figure who is the biblical Jesus Christ, is described as having only one eye. This is similar to the description Zechariah gives here to what many believe to be the Antichrist:
The LORD said to me, “Take again for yourself the equipment of a foolish shepherd. “For behold, I am going to raise up a shepherd in the land who will not care for the perishing, seek the scattered, heal the broken, or sustain the one standing, but will devour the flesh of the fat sheep and tear off their hoofs. “Woe to the worthless shepherd Who leaves the flock! A sword will be on his arm And on his right eye! His arm will be totally withered And his right eye will be blind.” [Zechariah 11:15-17 NASB]
Personally, I think this could just as easily be describing Isa, or the False Prophet who is the Islamic Jesus. Regardless, this is just one of the many distortions that serves to show that the Qur’an is the corruption of the Bible and that the religion of Islam is the religion of the Antichrist.
