A week or so ago I came across a book being offered on an online News portal that looks to be written by Roman Jesuits. The book is doing what Rome has always done in the past. It’s proclaiming someone else to have the title of Antichrist so as to pull the onus off of them. They did this with Nero for many years, they did this with Hitler, and now they’re doing it with Islam. Yes, the Islamic religion is an antichristian religion. But it is not THE antichrist of prophecy. Like Hitler, I do see the Vatican this very day using the Islamic people to do their bidding in the way they are killing Christians every chance they get. So, yes, Islam is a power to contend with an pray about. But they are not THE prophecied antichrist.
In the article sub-headline about the book, they stated the Euro-centric prophecy scholars looking to Rome are all wrong when preaching the Vatican is home to Antichrist. So right off we see the author is indeed pro-Catholic and obviously on their payroll. If we’ve learned anything about this church, it’s they will lie and they will spin-doctor the truth. The ongoing molestation scandals proves this hands down. By the way, just so you know, political spin-doctoring was invented by Rome. Nuff said?
As the article starts it immediately lets the cat out of the bag as to the author’s lack of prophetic understanding as well as use of deception to make a point. He said…
After decades of reading popular prophecy books and even best-selling fiction like the “Left Behind” series, millions of evangelical Christians around the world are dreading the day when a beastly figure known as the Antichrist emerges as a global political and religious dictator. –Source
Here we see them admit at the start of the article that they are basing their need for the book on proven false prophets like Tim Lahaye and Jerry B. Jenkins who wrote the series “Left Behind.” The authors of the left behind series even admitted it was fiction. Worse yet, the author of this Islamic Antichrist tripe also declares “Left Behind” to be fiction, yet he still uses it as if it’s to be trusted. Why do they do this? It appears obvious to me they did this so as to prevent preachers like me from asking them the hard questions as to WHERE in the Bible they got this stuff. When we approach them, as we have, they come back saying, “It’s fiction, I never stated it was fact.” But do the millions of faithful readers of their series know this? No! In fact, their books are sold in Christians books stores the world over as if they are gospel! That is why the author of this Islamic Antichrist pack of lies uses them as a jumping off point. Continuing in the article…
Most expect him to come from a revived Roman Empire, which many have assumed is associated with the Roman Catholic Church and the European Union. Not so, argues a controversial new book that makes the case that the biblical Antichrist is one and the same as the Quran’s Muslim Mahdi. –Source
Ok, here we got him! If this Mahdi is the antichrist, and the Vatican is not, then he must do all that prophecy says Antichrist will do. So, I ask the following “hard” questions to see if in fact Mahdi is the prophecied antichrist. I do so without expecting the slightest hint of a response from the authors or anyone defendign them of course. Still.. it has to be asked. Reason being is, when the people search for this book online, my hope is that this article on Presents of God’s ministries website comes up wherein they can see the truth about all this.
- Did Mahdi destroy 3 nations after Rome fell? No! The Vatican did.
- Did Mahdi receive his authority from Pagan Rome? No! The “ROMAN” Catholic Vatican did.
- Did Mahdi’s church reside on 7 hills? No! The Vatican admits theirs does in writing.
- Did Mahdi kill hundreds of millions of Christians for 1260 years? No! But the Vatican did.
- Did Mahdi receive a mortal wound and then resurrect? No! The Vatican did.
- Did Mahdi rule, stop ruling, and then return to rule globally? No! The Vatican did.
- Did Mahdi force most Christendom and politicians to worship him? No! The popes have.
- Does Mahdi have numerous titles that all equal 666? No! The popes do.
- Did Mahdi mix his religion with neo-Paganism? No! The Vatican did.
- Did Mahdi convince all nations to create a 10 region NWO? No! The Vatican did.
- Did Mahdi seek out men that refuse woman and prefer homosexuality? No! The Vatican did.
- Did Mahdi change times and laws of the Christian God in church and State? No! The Vatican did.
Besides the many obvious false claims made in the article pushing this book that most students of prophecy can easily expose as Vatican spin-doctoring, the author claims Rome cannot be the 4th Kingdom that Daniel records in the dream of Nebuchadnezzar because they never conquered Babylon. But the Bible clearly states Rome is the whore of Babylon incarnate wherein it adopts all of Babylonian false worship to meld with Christianity. The fact the Vatican religion of Roman Catholicism has been confirmed for over 1471 years now to be replete with Pagan/Babylonian rituals proves this hands down. (For an in depth look at this prophecied 4th kingdom, see this… http://www.remnantofgod.org/daniel2.htm )
In order for someone to be “the” Antichrist, they must fulfill 100% of each prophecy that speaks of Antichrist. I just shared a quick dozen prophecies out of literally hundreds proving they are lying about the Islamic antichrist. They may very well deceive the masses, but the elect can not be deceived. Praise the Lord for His Word educating His people so as to avoid such idiocies as this.
