Is Islam Antichrist?

Some preachers and teachers as well as numerous websites and media declaring the Islamic leaders are the Biblical Antichrist. But is this so? Do the prophecies in the Bible really line up with that assumption?

The only way to find this out is to go into our Bibles, study the prophecies, and then look in our history books to see if in fact Islam did what the prophecies say Antichrist will do.

If Islam is Antichrist we need to declare it across the land. But if Islam isn’t the home of the Antichrist, then according to the Word of God, we need to find out who really is responsible for fulfilling all these prophecies.

There are literally scores of prophecies that describe Antichrist and his agenda quite nicely. In the following list you will find some of prophetic fulfillments out of many that according to the Word of God must be fulfilled by only one entity who is described in Christian prophecy to be the Antichrist. Absolutely every prophecy of Antichrist must match with that person and or organization or we have stumbled off the path of truth. You cannot have a few prophecies declare Islam to be home to Antichrist while ignoring the others that point somewhere else if we are to be trusted by those seeking the truth on this. For example, take the number 666 the prophecy says is the number of a man’s name.

Revelation 13:17-18, “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

Many people have used this 666 to declare Ronald Reagan is Antichrist, Muhammad, or even Microsoft Windows are “the Antichrist” because they can place numeric values to these names to make them add up to 666. Some will even go so far as to purposely misspell a person’s name or use their name in a different language to make the 666 valid. Now this may be true, their names may very well add up to 666, but do all the other prophecies match with them as well?

What does the Bible say about Antichrist? Is it Islam? Or did someone else fulfill these prophecies?

Keep in mind. The below list is just a brief summary of each prophetic event. In fact, if you read just a few of the prophetic facts you will find how easy it is to put to rest the lie that is being proclaimed in the world regarding Islam.

Is Islam the Antichrist?

1. Exterminates 3 nations:
Daniel 7:24, "And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings."

Did Islam destroy 3 nations exactly 1260 years before being mortally wounded politically? No. But the Vatican did.

Daniel identifies immediately that the horns in this vision actually refer to kings. For further confirmation, later in Daniel 8:20 we see the two horns on the ram Daniel sees in vision are in fact the two kings of Media and Persia. When Pagan Rome fell in 476AD it resulted in the formation of TEN SEPARATE KINGDOMS. Three of these ten kingdoms rejected the idea of a "universal / Catholic faith" that was both religious as well as political so as to better control the people of the fallen nation of Rome. They were annihilated for protesting against such an evil entity. 1. Heruli nation was annihilated in 493AD. 2. Vandals in 534AD. 3. Ostrogoths in 538AD were the final of the three kings that would be subdued just as Daniel prophesied. With the fall of the Ostrogoths in the year 538AD the political entity we today refer to as the "Roman Catholic institution," began it's official reign as the last part of this fourth beast mentioned in the prophecy of Daniel.

2. 666
Revelation 13:17,18, "And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

Latin is the official language of the Roman Catholic Church. Church Documents are usually published first in Latin, and then translated from the Latin into other languages. The unique thing about the Latin language is that it's alphabet serves a dual purpose. It's not only used to spell out words, it is also used as it's numeric system. For example. The letter I = 1, the letter V = 5, the letter C = 100, and so on. Now all one needs to do is spell the titles of the pope. Then all you need to do is add up the letters that are actually numbers as well.

VICARIVS - substituting for, or in place of
FILII - means son
DEI - means God
3. After the 1260 years, the beast will be mortally wounded:
Revelation 13:3, "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death..."

4. Mortal wound will heal:
Revelation 13:3, "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast."

Was Islam wounded politically after killing hundreds of thousands of Christians and then later resurrected to regain power globally?

No, but the Vatican did that.

The "deadly wound" was given to the Papacy by Napoleon in 1798. The Vatican still continued as a church however. But she was completely stripped of her civil and political power just as the prophecy declared. Then, suddenly in 1929, we see the Italian government recognizing Vatican City once again as an independent state. This political move once again made the Pope a religio-political power! Just as prophecy said, the mortal wound that was administered in 1798 by Napoleon was supposed to be healed. Notice how the newspapers of that day actually used prophetic language without realizing it.

Mussolini and (Cardinal) Gasspari sign historic Roman pact.
"The Roman question tonight was a thing of the past, and the Vatican was at peace with Italy... In affixing the autographs to the memorable document healing the wound of many years, extreme cordiality was displayed on both sides" -The San Francisco Chronicle. Feb. 11, 1929

Pope Becomes Ruler Of A State Again
Rome, June 7.--From 11 o' clock this morning there was another sovereign independent State in the world. At that time Premier Mussolini, as Italian Foreign Minister representing King Victor Emmanuel--the first Italian Premier ever to cross the threshold of the Vatican--exchanged with Cardinal Gasparri, Papal Secretary of State, representing Pope Pius XI, ratifications of the treaties signed at the Lateran Palace on Feb. 11. By that simple act the sovereign independent State of Vatican City came into existence. -New York Times July 7, 1929

5. Was.. is not... yet is:
Revelation 17:8, "... behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is."
The Beast that was: The Roman church began in 538ad and continued until Napoleon sent in General Berthier in 1798ad
...and is not: From 1798ad until the signing of the Lateran treaty in 1929 the Roman Church/state was non-existent.
...yet is: From 1929 to present the Roman Church has been a church & state.
6. Antichrist is to be a blasphemous power:
Revelation 13:1, "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy."

John 10:33, "The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God."

Does Islam have a leader claiming to be a god on earth?

No, but the popes has stated many times in writing they are a “god on earth.”

"The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, he is Jesus Christ himself, hidden under the veil of flesh." Catholic National July 1895.

"We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty" ...Pope Leo XIII Encyclical Letter of June 20, 1894,

"For thou art the shepherd, thou art the physician, thou art the director, thou art the husbandman, finally thou art another God on earth." Labbe and Cossart's "History of the Councils." Vol. XIV, col. 109

The title "Lord God the Pope" is found within a gloss of Extravagantes of Pope John XXII, title 14, chapter 4 n an Antwerp edition of the Extravagantes, the words, "Dominum Deum Nostrum Papam" (Our Lord God the Pope) can be found in column 153. In a Paris edition, they are found in column 140.
The Bull Unam Sanctam... Issued by POPE BONIFACE VIII reads as follows: "The Roman Pontiff judges all men, but is judged by no one. We declare, assert, define and pronounce: to be subject to the Roman Pontiff is to every human creature necessary for salvation that which was spoken of Christ 'thou has subdued all things under his feet' may well seem verified in me... I have the authority of the King of Kings. I am all in all and above all, so that God himself and I, the vicar of God, have but one consistory, and I am able to do all that God can do."
"The Saviour Himself is the door of the sheepfold: 'I am the door of the sheep.' Into this fold of Jesus Christ, no man may enter unless he be led by the Sovereign Pontiff; and only if they be united to him can men be saved, for the Roman Pontiff is the Vicar of Christ and His personal representative on earth." (Pope John XXIII in his homily to the Bishops and faithful assisting at his coronation on November 4, 1958).
Does Islam claim to forgive sins of men?

No. But the Vatican does.

"This judicial authority will even include the power to forgive sin." [The Catholic Encyclopaedia Vol 12, -article "Pope" pg 265]
"And God himself is obliged to abide by the judgment of his priest and either not to pardon or to pardon, according as they refuse to give absolution, provided the penitent is capable of it." -Liguori, «Duties and Dignities of the Priest», p.27
8. Antichrist has a church that makes war with the saints.

Daniel 7:25, "And he shall ... shall wear out the saints of the most High,"

Revelation 13:7, "And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."

Did Islam kill over 500 million Christians during a 1260 year period?

No. But the Vatican did.

Rome has all along never denied it persecuted Christians. Sure, they will call them heretics, but hen you look into what these heretics believed, they were actually bible believing Christians. History is literally drenched with all sorts of evidence proving this out nicely. Jesus said in John 16:2, "They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service." Were you aware that in the Pope's globally broadcast "Mea Culpa" that he admitted the Catholic church killed millions upon millions because they thought they were doing God's will? Jesus said that they will kick you out of churches, and kill you thinking they are doing God's will, and then the Pope says they kicked people out of churches, and then had to kill them because they thought they were doing God's will.

9. Antichrist is to be able to influence entire world to worship him:

Revelation 13:8, "And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."

Do all the politicians of the world clamor to please Islam to better their careers?

No. But hey do so to the popes.

  • John 17:11, "And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are."
Jesus is in the Garden praying just before Judas arrives with the mob to take Him away to be crucified. In this prayer, Jesus actually calls His Father in Heaven HOLY FATHER! Every catholic on earth, every priest, every cardinal, every bishop, and every nun is taught to call the pope holy father. Even the media calls him this blasphemous name. Every newspaper, magazine, TV news anchorman, and radio announcer uses that title for the pope. Plus, every dignitary, president, or head of state must kiss the hand of the pope either in private, or before the cameras to make a statement. We have all seen the many pictures of people kissing the pope's ring.
From the common man, to mainstream political entities, they must all kiss this man's hand! This is an open act of worship the pope is receiving with complete agreement. Often the pope won't even raise his hand for the person to kiss it. They literally have to bow before him to kiss his hand dangling at his side.

10. Antichrist must be a "Christian" church that embraces the teachings of BABYLON:

Revelation 17:5, "And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."

Does Islam mix Paganism in all its forms with Christianity?

No, but Catholicism does.

In the Scriptures we find a prophetic explanation of the church of Antichrist. a woman in prophecy equals a church. A mother is most definitely a woman. Therefore this mother in Revelation 17:5 is a church. Problem is, this mother is a whore, in fact she is a mother of many whores the prophecy says. This means that MANY churches the world over will spawn out from this church doing as she has taught. Looking through history one will find upwards of 3000 denominations that have been spawned from Roman Catholicism. Prophecy defines this woman as a whore. This means she will be an apostate mother or church to all those that do as she suggests.

Cardinal Newman admits in his book that; the "The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; votive offerings on recovery from illness; holy water; asylums; holydays and seasons, use of calendars, processions, blessings on the fields; sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure, the ring in marriage, turning to the East, images at a later date, ...the ecclesiastical chant, and the Kyrie Eleison, are all of pagan origin, and sanctified by their adoption into the Church. {374}" -An Essay on the The Development of the Christian Doctrine John Henry "Cardinal Newman" p.359 (Also see According to Dr. E. D. Clarke, Travels, vol. i. p. 352.)

11. Does Islam force all the worlds kings to bow to him?
No. But the Popes do.

Were you aware that as of the year 2000 there are over 170 ambassadors to the Vatican? And were you also aware that every one of those ambassadors, as well as each delegate from each of those nations must have at one time or another bowed before the Pope in an act of worship by kissing his ring? Keep in mind that the Vatican is not only a religious organization, it is also a bonafide nation as of 1929 when Mussolini signed the Lateran treaty with Cardinal Gasspari. That means, the Vatican is the only religious organization that has a seat in all United Nation meetings. Or as prophecy describes it, the Vatican religious organization has joined with the kings of the earth. Rome does this so the Vatican can use it's national status to perform religious acts it deems necessary in a global agenda. And ALL nations that have any interest in global movements have already stated they agree with the Vatican. They have openly joined with her on many issues of global importance. In fact, not a single nation makes a major move, or adopts a national policy without first making sure it doesn't go against any of the plans of Rome. If they do Rome will most assuredly use the power of the lamb horned beast (USA) to make sure they stay in line. Plus, as of the inception the Roman International Criminal Court system coming to be in 1999, all nations know that it would not be a wise decision to go against the Vatican. What with the USA, or as prophecy defines it, the lamb horned beast bowing to the Vatican's suggestions regarding warfare. This by the way is regardless of what the media pumps before the masses. They know that to go against Rome would be futile. Many historians tie all the modern day wars, and most wars of the past to Roman Catholic influence. The prophecy is sure when it is said that "...Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? " -Revelation 13:4

12. Antichrist presumes authority to tamper with and change God's law.
  • Daniel 7:25, "And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time."
Did Islam change the Sabbath from the 7th day to the 1st day?
No. But the Vatican admits in writing they did.

In the Catechism, of the Roman Catholic Church we see they ripped out the second commandment which forbids image worship, then divided the 10th commandment into two parts so that they still appear to have 10 commandments. This proves they "think to change laws" as Daniel put it. The Roman Catholic Church, not Jesus Christ, changed the Sabbath given at creation week from Saturday, the 7th day to Sunday, the 1st day. And to top it off, the Roman Catholic church ADMITS that very fact...

"Sunday is our MARK of authority. . .the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact" Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1,1923.

"Perhaps the boldest thing, the most revolutionary change the Church ever did, happened in the first century. The holy day, the Sabbath, was changed from Saturday to Sunday. "The day of the Lord" was chosen, not from any direction noted in the Scriptures, but from the Church's sense of its own power .... People who think that the Scriptures should be the sole authority, should logically become Seventh-day Adventists, and keep Saturday holy." (Saint Catherine Church Sentinel, Algonac, Michigan, May 21, 1995.)

"The Roman [Catholic] Church reversed the Fourth Commandment by doing away with the Sabbath of God's Word, and instituting Sunday as a holiday"--Nicholas Summerbell, History of the Christian Church, 3rd edition, 1873, p. 415 [Christian Church (Christian Connection)].

"Sunday is a Catholic institution and its claim to observance can be defended only on Catholic principles .... From beginning to end of Scripture there is not a single passage that warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last day of the week to the first." (Catholic Press, Sydney, Australia, August, 1990.)

Question: How prove you that the church had power command feasts and holydays?

Answer: By the very fact of changing the Sabbath into Sunday, which Protestants allow of; and therefore they fondly contradict themselves by keeping Sunday strictly, and keep most other feasts commanded by the same church.

Question: Have any other way of proving that the church has power to institute festivals precept?

Answer: Had she not such power, she could not a done that in which all modern religionists agree with her;-she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the first day of the way, for the observance of Saturday the seventh day of the week, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority. "-Stephen Keenan, a doctrinal catechism, p. 174

"Reason and sense demand the acceptance of one or the other of these alternatives: either Protestantism and the keeping holy of Saturday Catholicism and the keeping holy of Sunday. Compromise is impossible. -James Cardinal Gibbons. Catholic mirror, December 23, 1893

Islam cannot possibly be the Antichrist. The Popes of Rome have fulfilled each and every prophecy ever uttered by our God that describes the Antichrist in such graphic detail. But because the churches don’t teach prophecy, and the media is under their thumb, most are unaware of the facts. Yes, many Muslim leader and so-called Muslim countries do Antichristian acts on a daily basis. But so do most politicians, and even some common men all around us. But in order to claim the official prophesied title of “Antichrist” they must fulfill 100% of every prophecy. Islam simply cannot do that no matter how much you stretch, or twist the truth. Only the Roman Catholic Popes fulfill each and every prophecy with 100% accuracy.
