“When you look at Islamic tradition, sacred tradition, as they describe their primary messiah figure, the Mahdi, there’s numerous striking similarities with what the Bible describes with the Antichrist,” Richardson said. ‘They believe he’ll rule for seven years, they believe he’ll rule specifically from Jerusalem on the Temple Mount, they believe he’ll be a religious, military, political leader that will cause Islam to be supreme throughout the world, filled with anti-Semitism, anti-Christ, anti-Christian spirit and doctrine. It’s amazing how the two concepts, messianic concepts, really line up in what I call an ‘anti-parallel.’”

Other prophecy teachers, notably Hal Lindsey and Tim LaHaye have made the case for a European Antichrist, selling tens of millions of books in the process. But as Robertson noted, it’s in the Middle East where messianic beliefs have truly taken root among both Shiite and Sunni Muslims.

And Richardson observed that in both the “thoroughly apocalyptic” Shiite Iranian regime that is seeking nuclear weapons and the Sunni terrorist group ISIS that is “completely driven by their apocalyptic policies” …More than that, Richardson argued, even moderate and mainstream Muslim publications are saying Islamic prophecy is being fulfilled now.”

As another writer commented on Iran’s nuclear ambitions HERE:

“If Iran were willing to forgo its nuclear ambitions, it would ask the world: “What will you give us in exchange?” It would get paid off, and it would agree to a verifiable inspection regime.

The cat and mouse game we are witnessing is the opposite of that. A nation doesn’t hold out for thousands of centrifuges, an underground bunker lab, and suddenly refuse to ship its enriched uranium out of the country if it’s serious about abandoning its nuclear program. Everybody in the world knows this.

It is humiliating to watch the naked liars Kerry and Obama conduct this farce in the name of the United States of America.”

Joel Richardson doesn’t provide a timeline for prophecy to unfold before our eyes.  He merely suggests that it is starting to become obvious.  The creation of a new Islamic Caliphate in 2014 may be the most important fulfillment of Bible prophecy since 1948 and 1967, when the Jews re-established Israel as a nation and later unified Jerusalem under Israeli rule.  Anyone who takes Bible prophecy seriously knows that the generation that sees these events will see all end times prophecy unfold… and if we assume a 70 year generation as Psalms 90:10 suggests, then those who witnessed Israel’s war of independence from 1948-49 only have to wait until about 2019.  Even Islamic prophecies suggest events will unravel within a few years, as the following excerpt from Antichrist 2016-2019: Mystery Babylon, Barack Obama & the Islamic Caliphate describes what may be the most interesting example of Islamic end times prophecies coming to pass:

“There is an amazing Islamic prophecy that seems relevant here. It is a 17th century Shiite prophecy which may very well be describing Barack Obama. This is not in the Qu’ran, (which is a thousand years older) but it is still a centuries-old “Hadith” (tradition.) Shi’ite Mullah Majlisi wrote Bahar al-Anvar (Oceans of Light) – 132 volumes of religious commentary that (along with the Qu’ran on which it comments) is the foundation of modern Shi’ite Islam.

Mullah Majlisi wrote that, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (Mohammed’s cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that just prior to the return of the Twelfth Imam – the Mahdi – the Ultimate end times Savior of Islam – a “tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West.” Leading “the strongest army on earth,” the new western ruler in the West will carry “a clear sign” from the third imam, (whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali.) Obama’s middle name, Hussein, is believed to be that sign. The Hadith also says that “Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us.” Although “Buraq” in Arabic means lightning, the slightly different name Barack, in both Arabic and Farsi (Persian) means blessing; Barack Hussein means “the blessing of Hussein” in both languages. Even the surname Obama, written in the Persian alphabet as O-Ba-Ma, means “he is with us,” another key point of Majlisi’s tradition.”

When I pay attention to Iran’s dream of a nuclear weapons program, it’s easy to see who is with them, helping them get the nukes they believe they need to be capable of provoking an apocalyptic war and bringing on the end times, which they believe will end with the destruction of Israel, Rome/Christianity, and the establishment of Islam and Sharia Law over the entire world.  A poll a few years ago showed that most Muslims (670 million) believed the Mahdi would usher in the end times in their lifetime.  Where American interference is disliked the most, the numbers were highest – 83% in Afghanistan, and 72% in Iraq (Pew pollsters were denied access in Iran, but the Ayatollah Khamenei gave a 20 minute speech on this topic in 2011 and explained that the identity of the Mahdi is known, he has been reborn, they know the details, and we should not expect too many years to go by uneventfully – as “the Mahdi will return to slaughter all non-Muslims and establish a global Islamic empire.”)

    Why do Protestants keep Sunday?

    “The Adventists are the only body of Christians with the Bible as their teacher, who could find no warrant in its pages for the change of day from the seventh to the first. Hence their appellation,” Seventh-day Adventists. “They’re cardinal principle consists in setting apart Saturday for the exclusive worship of God, in conformity with the positive command of God Himself, repeatedly reiterated in the sacred books of the Old and New testaments, literally kept by the children of Israel for thousands of years to this day, and endorsed by the teaching and practice of the Son of God while on earth.” -Rome’s Challenge, page two

    “Is not yet too late for Protestants to redeem themselves. Will they do it?… will they indeed take the written word only, the Scripture alone, as their sole authority and their sole standard? Or will they still hold the indefensible, self contradictory, and suicidal doctrine and practice of following the authority of the Catholic church and wear the SIGN of her authority? Will they keep the Sabbath of the Lord, the seventh day, according to Scripture? Or will they keep the Sunday according to the tradition of the Catholic church, -Ibid, page 31

    It will be interesting to see what the next few years have in store. Thanks for your educated articles, it’s refreshing to see some serious research and information on BIN. Past two years this place has really become a melting pot for all kinds…sometimes I feel like I might be better off grabbing a copy of the National Enquirer from my local grocery store.

    Islam was created by Catholicism, same way and reason why it created Voodoo… To put all people under the authority of the Catholic hierarchy, using any means including mixing it in with local traditional pagan beliefs.
