The Dragon, Antichrist and False Prophet
We are going to review Revelation to observe what it says about the three beasts of the last days. They are the Dragon, the Antichrist (the beast) and the False Prophet. Perhaps you need confirmation that there are indeed THREE: Revelation 16:13 states, "And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet." We call this the "Unholy Trinity" for this reason. The God of the Bible is not a 'trinity', but One LORD; the three beasts of Revelation are three separate entities. The Dragon will empower both the Antichrist and False Prophet.
The Dragon (Satan)
Revelation 12:3-4a “And another sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems. And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven, and threw them to the earth.”
Revelation 12:7-9 “And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. And the dragon and his angels waged war, and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”
Revelation 13:1 “And he stood on the sand of the seashore. And I saw a beast (dragon) coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names.”
Revelation 17:9 “The seven heads are seven mountains on which the Woman sits." Throughout Scripture, "mountains" are kingdoms.of the earth (i.e. Ezekiel 34:6).
The Antichrist (helel) - Abaddon/Apollyon
Revelation 13:2-4 “And the dragon gave him (Antichrist) his power and his throne and great authority. And I saw one of his (dragon’s) heads (mountain/kingdom) as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast (dragon); and they worshiped the beast (dragon), saying ‘Who is like the beast (dragon), and who is able to wage war with him?’ And he (dragon) opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name [ref: Rev 13:1]…”
Revelation 13:7 “And it was given (by the dragon) to him (Antichrist) to make war with the saints and to overcome them; and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation (sea) was given to him. And all who dwell on the earth will worship him (Antichrist), everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain.”
Revelation 17:8 “The beast (Antichrist) that you saw was and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and to go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth will wonder, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come.”
Revelation 11:7 (Regarding the two witnesses) “And when they have finished their testimony, the beast (Antichrist) that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them.”
Revelation 9:2 “And he opened the bottomless pit;…” Verse 11 then states, “They have a king over them, the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon.” If you compare this to Revelation 17:8, we see that the Antichrist is about to come up out of the abyss and to go to destruction. Abaddon is Hebrew (from the root Abraam – Abraham) and means a destroying angel. Apollyon is Greek and means a destroyer..
The False Prophet (A Religious Leader)
Revelation 13:11-13 “And I saw another beast (false prophet) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb (Jesus is called the Lamb of God), and he spoke as a dragon (Satan). And he exercises all the authority of the first beast (dragon) in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast (dragon), whose fatal wound was healed [ref: Rev 13]. And he performs great signs…”
Revelation 13:16-18 “And he (false prophet) causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand, or on their forehead, and he provides that no one should be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast (dragon) or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. (see codex symbols below under "false prophet"). This is also known as the mark of the beast.
The Antichrist-Islam Connection
Based on many sources, including the book, What is the Antichrist-Islam Connection, which outlines the prophecy of Daniel and King Nebukadnezar’s dream (the king of Babylon), and the testimony of converted PLO Muslim terrorist, Walid Shoebat, we are going to look at Islam and how it aligns with the prophecies of the three beasts of Revelation. Moving forward:
The Dragon (Nations)
We know that the dragon comes up from the sea of peoples, nations, tribes and tongues. Because the Woman sits upon this beast with seven heads and ten horns, and is representative of the great city of Babylon, we get an idea where the location of these kingdoms are. Looking at the map here, know that the countries of Islam include various peoples, nations, tribes and tongues, all who share the same religion.
In Revelation 13:1 we read that on the heads of this dragon were blasphemous names. The Allah of Islam is described in the Qur'an as “the lord of the dawn”, “the lord of the worlds”, the “greatest of all deceivers”, and so many more! The antitheses of the Qur'an in comparison to the Bible will take another hub to address more fully.
Let’s just look at how the Bible refutes these blasphemous Muslim names of God for a minute:
“Lord of the Dawn” Q.3.54
Isaiah 14:12 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the dawn! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”
“Lord of the worlds” Q.2.2
2 Corinthians 4:4 “In whom the god of this world [Satan] hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
“The Best of Deceivers” S.3.54; cf. 8.30
Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”
Here are some more of Allah's blasphemous names, which align with Satan's characteristics, yet are in addition to names claiming the attributes of Yehovah Elohiym (our LORD God)!
Ad-Darr, The Creator of the Harmful; he who creates which makes one despondent
Al-Badi,The Originator, The Incomparable; he who creates wonders in the universe without any design
Al-Kfahid, The Abaser, he who diminishes or decreases: "We have put chains around their necks chin high, and forced them to lift up their heads."
- Did you know that the definition of Anakim (Hebrew) is: Anaqiy, descendants of the nephil “Anak” or “Anaq”, name literally meaning “choked, collared, strangle, encompassed by a chain, necklace.”
Al-Matin, The Forceful One; his subtle scheme is exceedingly firm
Al-Mudhill, The Dishonoror; he who lowers and puts one in abasement or degradation
Al-Mumit, The Taker of Life; he who created death
Al-Mutakabbiru, The Most Proud One
Al-Qabid, The Constrictor
Al-Warith,The Inheritor of All; he who has everlasting ownership of all things. Finite man only has temporary ownership, and at death all creatures have nothing.
In Revelation 12:14-17, we see the dragon (who comes up out of the sea , the Islamic nations) go after the woman (Jews) who gave birth to a son (Jesus Christ), a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child (Jesus) was caught up to God and to His throne (Rev 12:5).
Verse 14: “And the two wings of the great eagle (I believe this to represent the United States of America) were given to the woman (Jews), in order that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time (3 ½ years), from the presence of the serpent.
Verse 17 “And the dragon (Islamic nations) was enraged with the woman (Jews), and went off to make war with the rest of her offspring (believers), who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.”
The Antichrist (The Mahdi)
Something I just found out, which was shocking (though not), was the meaning of 'helel' (aka Lucifer) in Isaiah 14:12. "star of the morning, son of the dawn" is a picture of a crescent and a star! For more on this truth, listen to one who studied this Hebrew word here.
In the Qu’ran, Muslims are expecting their 12th Imam, who they call their Mahdi (the guided one). He is to be of the same name as "Muhammad". In the video below, you will see that he was and is not and will come. Looking at the definition of Abaddon, and the fact that the root comes from Abraham, note that Islam claims to come from Abraham, through his son Ishmael.
Daniel 11:37-38 states of the Antichrist, “He will show no regard for the gods (elohim) of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all. But instead he will honor a god of fortresses, a god whom his fathers did not know; he will honor him with gold, silver, costly stones and treasures.”
It is any wonder why Shiite Muslims stand at an ancient well, believing their Mahdi will arise out of it? According to Rev 17:8, the Antichrist rises up out of the abyss (pit). It is also no secret that Muslims do not honor women. They worship the god of fortresses (war or Jihad), and seek to destroy (Abaddon/Apollyon) Jews and Christians, the saints. The Antichrist is given power (by the dragon) to overcome and kill the two witnesses and persecute the saints.
Because Walid Shoebat revealed that the all the nations God judges in the Old Testament are Islamic ones, and that the Mahdi supposedly was born in 869 AD, do we now understand John's comment in 1 John 4:2-3 “By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.”
Any Muslim will tell you Jesus Christ dwelt on the earth "in the flesh", however they will also tell you that Allah is not a father because he never had a son. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, but not to Muslims. The God of the Bible is a Father; Allah is not. Why is this significant? 1 John 2:22 states, “This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.”
Speaking of 869 AD, this is actually 255 AH in Muslim time. Daniel 7:25 states of the Antichrist that “he will think to change times and laws”. AD is an abbreviation of anno Domini Nostri Jesu Christi, Latin for “in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ“. While the coming of Christ changed time from BC to AD, Muslims changed time to AH (H stands for Hijra, i.e. the year of the emigration of the prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina. Each numbered year is designated either H for Hijra or AH for the Latin anno Hegirae “in the year of the Hijra“).
What else is said about the Antichrist? Rev. 17:8: “The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction."
When you watch the video below (which is strictly Muslim), you will see a screen that shows the following information:
ABOUT THE MAHDI
Imam Muhammad Al-Mahdi (AS)
Title: Al-Mahdi, Sahib-ul-Asr, Al-Hujjat, Al-Qa'im
Born: Friday 15 of Shaban 255 AH, at Samarra
Father's Name: Imam Hasan-al-Askari
Mother's Name: Nargis Khatoon
DIED: STILL LIVING, BUT IN OCCULTATION AND WILL APPEAR BEFORE THE DAY OF JUDGMENT TO ESTABLISH JUSTICE ON EARTH. Okay ~ so he's over 1,140 years old?
He Was and Is Not and Will Come
The False Prophet (Jesus/Isa)
Interestingly enough, Muslims also predict that Jesus (Isa), will come back with the Mahdi to "pray behind him". Just as the Bible predicts the reign of the Antichrist with the false prophet for seven years, the hadiths (sayings or deeds attributed to Muhammad) predicts the Mahdi and Jesus (Isa) will also reign for seven years. If their Jesus is aligned with the biblical false prophet, he will force all to “be given” the mark of the first beast (the dragon/Allah).
Walid Shoebat, when studying the codex, discovered something shocking about the symbols of the mark of the beast, which the majority of Christians have interpreted to mean numerals 666. When he saw the symbols, he recognized them! They are Islamic symbols used today and are interpreted from right to left as “In the name of” / “Allah” and the third symbol represents the two swords of jihad (Islam/war)!
Furthermore, I read a forum post dated September 14, 2007 made by Gaborone, Botswana, a Muslim and is quoted as follows:
“Great Job meat popsicle . You really discovered the hidden mystery of Book of revelation .This book is written by Satan , not by any one else . 666 is a holly number relates with Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them ), the chosen people of GOD . Satan tried to create bad impression on whom 666 is to be found . As Satan knows that both Jesus' and Muhammad's names will be related with 666 , hence he referred 666 as the mark of beast in Bible .”
The Mark of the Beast
"Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years."
What is the ONLY religion on earth that still beheads people? ISLAM.
The DAY of the LORD
2 Thessalonians 2:3 states, “Let no one in any way deceive you, for it (the Day of the Lord) will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction (destroying angel/Antichrist), who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.”
Believers, at least we know where to look, and just as Islam nations eagerly seek the coming of their 12th Imam, their Mahdi along with their prophet called Jesus (Isa), we will also be comforted that the Day of the Lord is at hand, when the real Messiah (the King of kings and Lord of Lords, Yeshua Ha'Mashiach [Jesus, the Messiah]) will come to rule these nations with a rod of iron, defeating all evil, and set up His kingdom where we will reign with Him throughout the millennia and enjoy eternity going in and out of the New Jerusalem, established in the New Heaven and New Earth. Come, Lord Jesus, Come!

Some Shocking Facts
...which did WEAKEN THE NATIONS!
Is it possible?
Jesus said in Luke 10:18, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven". Isaiah 14:13-14 states of Lucifer (the Antichrist) that he will say in his heart "I will 'ascend to heaven' or 'ascend to the heights'".
The Antichrist is NOT Satan, the Dragon (Rev 20:2). He is the "son of perdition [destruction]" (2 Thes 2:3) as Judas in John 17:12, and it is written of Judas that "Satan entered into him" (John 13:27).
Jesus spoke Hebrew. Note the following facts:
Lightning is the word 1300 baraq
Heights is the word 1116 bamah
Heaven in Isa 14:13 is the word 4605 maal, from the root of 5927 alah
So, quoted in Hebrew "lightning from [Hebrew = o] the heights" would literally read, "baraq o bamah". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcbloBA2Lek
Sherry Ditzler on April 24, 2018:
Hi excellent work. I can't thank you enough. Question's I've had have been fitly answered. I am very thankful the knowledge, especially of who Obama is revealed as I was given insight by the Lord from the very start when Obama was elected the 1st time. I have been informing others ever since. Understanding Lucifer as not being Satan has helped me a lot as I have had many times pondered this. This is important as I knew there is an unholy spirit and all that Satan does is counter to the Lord. Blessings to you dear sister. Again well done!!!

Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on December 10, 2012:
You said, “I am shocked that you are calling Allah, Lucifer." Well, if you believe Allah is an angel as the majority of Christians believe Lucifer is Satan? No – that is not what I’m saying. If we had to compare, and I say this educationally only, Allah would be Satan and Lucifer the Mehdi, and Isa the false prophet of Revelation. Why is it America is called "The Great Satan" and Israel the "Little Satan" by Islam? Let's not be hypocritical here, okay?
You said, "A small minority of Muslims are making all of us look like barbarians"? You all follow the same Qur’an, Surahs and Hadiths, don’t you? Anyone can look up what Allah and Muhammad order Muslims to do to inherit their salvation and it’s not ‘peaceful’ whatsoever. And how then, can ‘radical Muslims’ NOT follow what you claim the Qur’an says “killing one innocent person, is like killing all of humanity and saving a person is like saving all of humanity”? I suppose the trickery in it is “who is innocent”? Christians and Jews? And is being ‘saved’ that of being saved from death by converting to Islam so you don’t lose your head?
Were you born into Islam or were you converted by such 'peaceful' claims? Are you Shiite or Sunni? And what is it that divides them so?
It’s all over the place about the behaviors of Islam's prophet, Muhammad. I’m sorry, but I don’t see him as a peaceful prophet, for if all of you follow his example in everything, well…..what have you to say to that? If you followed the example of Isa (Yeshua), the world would be incredibly different; but no, Isa is to pray behind the Mehdi, who is greater than Isa and is of the name (character, reputation) of Muhammad. If a Christian or Jew threw trash at a Muslim, they wouldn’t get a peaceful response, do you think? “Behead those who insult Islam”? What constitutes an insult? Right here in the USA in Deerborn, MI Muslims threw all kinds of trash (even solid, hard bottles) at a small group of Christians that were preaching in the area! And, our American police escorted the Christians out, so as not to enrage the Muslims - who is peaceful again? Where is the right to free speech in an Islamic community, even in the USA?
I tried to view “the Arrivals”, as one of my dear friends is a Muslim and I love her. However, that doctrine is truly the antithesis of Biblical Christianity. You may get just as nauseated listening to the Bible on youtube.
And speaking of Satan’s deception, why is it Allah is called the “Greatest of all plotters/schemers/deceivers”?
Allah is not the same God that I worship. My God does not have two persons or three. My Bible says (which many Christians don’t even read) that He created all things by Himself (no helpers). He is ONE GOD, who is invisible Spirit and Yeshua has always been His image (immortal and mortal). Has Allah ever appeared to Muslims in any form? Do you ever hear His voice? I hear he voice of my Shepherd.
Yahweh appeared to Abraham in Gen 18 as an immortal man. In fact, Yahweh manifested Himself in seven ways throughout Scripture. This does not mean He’s seven persons, so I don’t hold to the majority of Catholicized Christian doctrine, so you know. Why would He appear in mortal flesh? Because, our Bible sates, "without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins." Now, you may think your own blood can wash your sin away, but all mankind is sinful and no one's blood is holy enough. No blood of animals is holy enough either. This IS the Good News, even for you. He shed His blood to cover your sin and forgive you - to make you holy. And, He raised Himself from the dead, for Spirit never dies.
Our Bible says in 1 John 2:22 “Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.” How was Yeshua’s birth a miracle? Do you believe the Holy Spirit conceived Him in the womb of Mary? And why is He less important than Muhammad who had two, human parents? Not only does Allah not have a son, which means he is not a father, but you deny the Son of God ever died on a cross or rose from the dead. You deny that He is the only One who is your Savior. THAT means, WE DO NOT WORSHIP THE SAME GOD, Ayesha . Do not fear to call upon the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! He loves you so much.
Ayesha on December 10, 2012:
I am actually quite disgusted at how you come to the antithesis that Islam is the religion of Lucifer. I am a muslim and i came to visit this website just so i can compare what Islam says about Lucifer, Satan to what Christianity says about it, is it similar or what. But I am shocked that you are calling Allah, Lucifer.
Islam is not a religion of hate and bloodshed, a small minority of Muslims are making all of us look like barbarians.
It says in the Quran, our holy book " killing one innocent person, is like killing all of humanity and saving a person is like saving all of humanity". Islam is a religion of peace and brotherhood and co-existence.
Our Prophet Mohammad was an extremely humble human being, who would go and and inquire the health of a woman who used to throw trash at him everyday from her window., because she hated him. And one day she did not, and he went to her place to see if she was ok. That how elevated he was in humanity, and humility.
There is a documentary that you might be able to watch on youtube called "The Arrivals", it gives a very good insight about Satan, his deception and his plan for end times.
Allah is the same God that you worship, the one God. The only main difference is that we believe that Jesus was a messenger of Allah and not His son, and if you dig deep in your ancient books, you might also come to that conclusion. Allah / God created anything and everything in the Universe, why would He need a mate??? The birth of Jesus was a miracle, and it not beyond the Lord of all the Worlds to make a miracle happen.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on October 21, 2012:
Hello, ‘random person’. So, you are either naïve, deceived or are practicing Taqiyya (Concealment. Taqiyya can result in behavior other cultures would consider dishonest or devious). I will address both of your comments collectively in my response.
You said, “Muslims believe in Jesus and his sacrifice.” You also said, “Jesus did indeed die for the sins of all humanity. I dont think Syed Hasan denies that. No muslim does. Neither does Islam.”
• Muslims deny Jesus died at all. "They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but they thought they did.” (Q 4:156)
• Muslims do not believe in substitutionary atonement. “And no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another.” (Q 6:164)
Muslims do not know whether or not they will be saved. You asked, “Is it zeal and commitment to a religious belief that grants you forgiveness and heaven? Or is it being a good person?”
“In Islam there are two ways to get to paradise:
1. Your good deeds are weighted against your bad deeds. If you have done enough good deeds when compared to your bad deeds, you will eventually get to paradise, after spending some time burning in the fires of hell.
2. Muslims who die as martyrs defending Islam go directly to paradise.
It is plain to see that in Islam salvation is a result of your works. You may have also noticed that all Muslims, except those who die as martyrs defending Islam, go to hell. This is clearly stated in the Koran, Sura 19, verses 67-68 and 71-72.
(This is Allah speaking through his prophet Mohammed.) “There is not one among you who shall not pass through hell; such is the absolute decree of your Lord. We will deliver those who fear Us, and leave the wrongdoers there, on their knees.” (Sura 19:71-72)
This Sura clearly states that everyone goes to hell and that, after some period of time, Allah will deliver those who have done sufficient good deeds from hell, leaving behind those who have not done enough good deeds.
Salvation is through what a Muslim does. It is through human works.”
• The Bible says in Eph 2:8-9 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” Likewise, Isaiah 64:6 states, “For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.”
You said, “They believe that the Christians and Jews are people of the book. i.e. have the same God.”
People of the Book: Q 98:6 "Verily, those who disbelieve [non-Musllims] from among the People of the Book and idolaters, will be in the Fire of Hell, abiding therein. They are the worst of creatures."
The ‘holy’ Qur’an commands Muslims to:
Kill the disbelievers wherever they find them (2:191), murder them and treat them harshly (9:123), fight with them (8:65 ), strive against them with great endeavor (25:52), be stern with them because they belong to hell (66:9) and strike off their heads; then after making a “wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives” for ransom (47:4), ...And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (worshiping others besides Allah), and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world] 8:39"
The Quran does say that Christians and Jews are "people of The Book", but extremists get around that by saying the protection extends only to "good Christians" and "good Jews" (whatever that means). Not being "good" means that not only is it OK for Muslims to treat Christians and Jews badly, but Muslims are actually commanded to kill/enslave them (along with all other infidels/unbelievers).
Interesting that they wish to “wipe Israel off the map”, according to The Holy Bible, Ps 83:4: “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.”
You said, “I understand from your article that the definition of "Son" of God is not entirely different from "creation" of God. It does not imply biologically reproduced offspring.”
Christians believe (as I believe) that Jesus IS the literal offspring of God, in the flesh. We believe He is God in the flesh, for God is invisible Spirit and is seen visibly in the Person of Jesus Christ. His flesh was created, but He is the Creator Himself:
• Luke 1:35 “The angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God.”
Muslims deny Jesus is the Son of God (Divine) and because Allah has no son, he is not a father, is he? The Surah Al-Ikhlas clearly states “He begets not, nor is He begotten.”
• Col 1:15 “He is the image of the invisible God…”
• John 14:7 Jesus said, "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him."
• Col 1:16 “For by Him [Jesus] all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-- all things have been created through Him and for Him.”
• John 1:3 “All things were made by Him [Jesus]; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.”
• John 1:10 “He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew him not.”
You said, “Did Jesus really say "love thy nieghbour only if he is a Christian sharing your beliefs"
Jesus said to “Love your enemies; pray for those who persecute you” (Mat 5:44) However, the Qur’an commands Muslims to:
“Kill the disbelievers wherever they find them (2:191), murder them and treat them harshly (9:123), fight with them (8:65 ), strive against them with great endeavor (25:52), be stern with them because they belong to hell (66:9) and strike off their heads; then after making a “wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives” for ransom (47:4), ...And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (worshiping others besides Allah), and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world] 8:39"
Does this sound like a Muslim who is a ‘good person’ and that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’ to you? The irony about your statement “This truth incites racism, prejudice and hatred” sounds like it’s directed at me, simply because I have stated the Truth. Eph 5:11 states, “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”
You asked, “did he say "I am the savior of only those who believe and follow my teachings, the rest can burn in hell"? Likewise, you asked again, “Does that mean Jesus is our savior as well? Or do we all still go to hell?”
• John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” So what does this imply about those who do not ‘believe’ in Him? They perish; they do not have eternal LIFE. And, speaking of hell, Jesus spoke more about hell than He did about heaven (Paradise). Mat 25:41 “Then He [Jesus] will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels.”
What you need to understand about ‘hate’ is that the Jewish/Christian God loves the whole ‘world’ with ‘agape’ love, in that He died to save all, but it only applies to those who are called ‘His friend’. We, as His children, are to do as He does, which is not to become ‘friends’ with the ‘world’ that does not believe.
• 1 Tim 4:10 “For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.”
• John 2:23 “And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.”
• Jam 4:4 “You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”
• John 15:13 “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
A random person... again on October 20, 2012:
" I pray you will be given the insight to see before it is too late, for Jesus died for your sins, the only acceptable sacrifice."
Jesus did indeed die for the sins of all humanity. I dont think Syed Hasan denies that. No muslim does. Neither does Islam.
" If you reject His sacrifice, you will die in your sins and there is only an eternity of judgment on the other side, because you (without Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior) have no forgiveness of your sins."
I do not reject Jesus's sacrifice, Syed Hasan doesn't, no muslim does. Does that mean Jesus is our savior as well? Or do we all still go to hell? Is it zeal and commitment to a religious belief that grants you forgiveness and heaven? Or is it being a good person?
No human has the right to judge anothers existence. It is God's prerogative. All i'm saying is... just be nice, dont threaten damnation to people who are being agreeable and polite. I dont remember Jesus doing that.
A random person on October 20, 2012:
Muslims believe in Jesus, and his sacrifice. They believe in Jesus's great compassion and love (and the bible). They believe in Moses, and the ten commandments.
They believe that the Christians and Jews are people of the book. i.e. have the same God.
I understand from your article that the definition of "Son" of God is not entirely different from "creation" of God. It does not imply biologically reproduced offspring. Meaning we're all children of God, including animals, plants etc etc.
Did Jesus really say "love thy nieghbour only if he is a Christian sharing your beliefs", did he say "I am the savior of only those who believe and follow my teachings, the rest can burn in hell"?
I dont really think all this truth is setting anyone free. Its only creating hatred for someone who may be muslim but a good person. This truth incites racism, prejudice and hatred. Did Jesus really want this? If this is truly Christianity, then how is it any different from Islamic Anti-christ, the dragon, or Satan?
Evil does not have a name or a face, it could be muslim, it could be christian, it could belong to any race, religion or creed. The same way virtue can take any form.
I, for one, did not find any truth in the above article. It was an extraordinary concoction of creative interpretations of verses that were mostly metaphorical. If you'd read Bertrand Russel's "An inquiry into truth and meaning" you'd realize that it is child's play to make a set number of verses mean anything you want, convincingly.
The article above provides an interesting perspective in a manner very similar to how Dan Brown in "Da Vinci Code" provides a fascinating perspective to Jesus's life.
So you see, anyone can provide theories on how some religion is evil, or what the holy grail is. But few can appreciate the truth that really matters.
You may have enlightened alot of people on who to hate. But you have not taught anyone to love someone they dont know. I think Jesus would want you to do the later not the former.
Live in grace.

Matt, Ahmadiniejad is on his way out, last I heard on the news...just like Mubarak and Gadaffi. Are these the 'three horns' of the ten that are subdued by the 'little horn' who is of the seven heads/seven remaining horns? Did you know Ahmdiniejad considers himself to be the 'John the Baptist' precursor to the entry of the Mehdi? I may have written this earlier, but Henry Kissenger had already recommended Obama to be the leader of the NWO, as well. Time will tell.
For more on what all the 'oracles' have 'prophesied' (carnal and biblical) you might enjoy reading my hub, "The Oracles of the Last Days": https://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/The-Oracl... (I do find it interesting that Nostradamus predicted a 'name' of this final evil Dictator as 'MABUSH')...
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on June 19, 2011:
Syed Hasan Shahid Bukhari, what you write only confirms what is in this hub and does not refute it. I pray you will be given the insight to see before it is too late, for Jesus died for your sins, the only acceptable sacrifice. If you reject His sacrifice, you will die in your sins and there is only an eternity of judgment on the other side, because you (without Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior) have no forgiveness of your sins. I tell you this in faith and the love of God.
Matt on June 19, 2011:
I am sorry but like you said American's get paranoid like this every time a new president comes into office. Obama is not perfect but he is not the anti christ.
Obama is married and has two children(both girls).
The anti christ will come out of the middle east and probably be one of those countries presidents. I personally think the best bet is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
He wants to destroy Israel. His country has started to make nuclear warheads.
Again i just want to Obama is not the anti christ no matter what anyone says it is not him.
Syed Hasan Shahid Bukhari on June 18, 2011:
Do try making the exception this time round ... because, what you write about the Islamic Concepts, vis a vis The Ordained Messiah ... meaning, "Isa, son of the Blessed Virgin Mary: Peace be upon them ... the "Dhul Qarnain" meaning the two horned "ones" ... and "Dajjal" ... meaning, the Anti- Christ ... has nothing to do with the Islamic Concepts, clearly stated in Koran !
You must know, that as a Muslim, I ... not only Believe that God Hath no sons ... I also Believe, that God Hath no Daughters ... as the erstwhile of yours believed earlier !
And regarding the abuses ... its your problem, lets be patient ... on the Day, these matters shall stand Resolved.
I can only suggest you try change your mentor ... if you can !
Good Bye, once again.

Hi again, White Horse ~ HubPages is read by a vast audience, many outside of the membership of this site. I encourage readers to leave comments, whether they are members or not. I know some are concerned about these 'unknown' commenters, but I don't share in that concern ~~ God bless you :-)
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on June 18, 2011:
Matt, the Bible does not say whether the Antichrist will or will not be married. It merely states he has 'no regard...for the desire of women'. This can be interpreted in many ways: he could be gay; he could be a woman-hater; or, he could be the leader of a religion that abases women = Islam.
Obama's roots are definitely from the middle east. No Christian would call the Qu'ran 'holy'. The Antichrist is a deceiver. Would he not then appeal to God's people by appearing as a sheep, while inwardly being a ravenous wolf?
Daniel 11:39 prophesies of the Antichrist: "He will take action against the strongest of fortresses with the help of a foreign god; he will give great honor to those who acknowledge him and will cause them to rule over the many, and will parcel out land for a price."
Yes, every president has come under the suspicion of being the Antichrist ~ however, we've never had a president so anti-Israel (he's a proponent of dividing Israel) and so Muslim-friendly. Our Country's going down and fast. What greater accomplishment than to bring down the greatest power on earth? Mubarak and Gaddafi are out and the Muslim Brotherhood is moving in...what's next? Have you read 'The Third Jihad' authored by the Muslim Brotherhood? The Third Jihad is radical Islam's strategic plan for war on America, which they identify as 'the Great Satan'.
Let everyone simply pay attention, that we are dilligent watchmen and are not deceived. God bless.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on June 18, 2011:
Shahid Bukhari, I hope you received my email as I borrowed a computer to explain to you I have been in the middle of moving without internet service for a week.
I have posted your comment for educational purposes. Most of what I've learned about Islam came from those who follow the religion, and you are no exception.
The beast with two horns as a lamb (Jesus) that speaks as a dragon (Satan) is the False Prophet. The Lamb in the Bible is Jesus Christ; the Dragon in the Bible is Satan. Islam believes the Mehdi/Mahdi (our Antichrist, empowered by the Dragon) will be followed by their 'Jesus' (Isa), the lamb with two horns that speaks as a dragon. If you don't believe this prophesied False Prophet is a man, then your Isa is not a man, correct?
You say each one must pay for their own sin. If Islam comes from Abraham and Ishmael, then you must also know that the descendants of Isaac sacrificed a lamb once a year to 'pass over' the sins of the people. This law was given after their exodus from slavery in Egypt. If you don't know the story of the first Passover, then read the book of Exodus. When God sent the plagues to Egypt because Pharaoh wouldn't let His people go, the Jews were spared all plagues, the last by placing the blood of a lamb on their doorposts.
You deny God has a Son, or that angels are called 'sons of God'. People are also called 'sons of God', when they are born of God. You then, are not born of your god, nor are you a son of God. The Bible then calls you a son of the father of lies. John 8:44 "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies."

GRIM REAPER 20 months ago (example)
I occasionally notice some comments in black (meaning not hubpages member or just not signed in) that are in many hubs. Can't wait to see the IP addresses come "j-day."
Matt on June 14, 2011:
Obama is not the AntiChrist.
Firstly Obama is married and has kids, and i am pretty sure it says the antichrist will not like women or have kids. Secondly Obama is not from the middle east where you have previously said the antichrist will be from. Also no one know whether Obama is truly a muslim or a christian, only he knows and God. Personally i think he is Christian.
I think you are spot on when you say that Islam and their coming prophets are the antichrist. It all seems to align perfectly.
Finally,can people please stop being so paranoid about Obama now. This happens every time there is a new American president. Trust me Obama is not the antichrist.
Thanks for the article.
Shahid Bukhari from My Awareness in Being. on June 13, 2011:
Reckon, by this time, you would have read what I wrote ... in commenting on two of your hubs ...
I think the purpose stands served, therefore, I do not look forward to your approval or denial ...
This Comment, is in offering my assistance, in case you are having any difficulties with the text of my stated.
Shahid Bukhari from My Awareness in Being. on June 12, 2011:
I reproduce here, in Testimony, Four Verses of Quran ... In Correcting your 'interpretative' stance, apparently based in the Testimony, of a Terrorist, who converted to your religion ... and religious apocrypha.
I quote The Word, Stated in al'Quran :
83. "And they will ask thee [ Muhammad ] about the 'Two Horned' one ... Say ...
I will recite to you The Word ... The Account of him, so that you remember."
84. "Truly, We established him [ the Two Horned one ] in the Land, and Granted him, the Means, of access, to Everything."
85. "Thus ... he followed, Our Caused."
86. "Till he [ the Two Horned one ] reached the West ... and found it going down into a sea of Darkness, and found, a People nearby.
We Said, ... O'ye Two Horned one, either Punish them, or do them favor. "
87. " so he [ the two horned one ] said,
As for the unjust, we [the horned one and his followers] will chastise them, and then return them to The Lord, and He will chastise them with exemplary punishment."
[ The Lord's Will, thus, Stood Effected, In The Lord's Command ...
For, only The Lord's Word, Is Eternal, He, Is, The Almighty ... hence The Effected, Is not of the saying, or doings, of the two horned one ]
The Eternal Word ... of The Lord, Is :
88. " And for the one, who Believes, and does Good, for him is a Good Reward, and We shall Speak to him, the easy Word, of Our Command. "
[Source: Al Quran, Chapter 18, Titled, "The Two horned one, and, the Gog and Magog.]
Thus, it is not a Two Horned Human, or any other person, or thing, effecting things, of their own Will, Desires and Accord ...
The Lord's Word, Effects, The Command.
As for "Sin" ...
In Islam, we Believe, that no father shall be punished, nor the son, for the other's sin ... For each Is Responsible, for what each does ...
Because ... All those Created, stand equal, before Allah ... God.
As regards "Anti-Christ" ... The correct Islamic Belief Is: That the accursed Anti-Messiah, Hath been Created; Blind in one Eye.
That, In The Ordained Sign,
The Blinded eye of the Anti Messiah, will be swollen like a rotten grape [ greenish in color !] ... and the accursed, shall stand Granted Powers ... "Like" the Powers of God !
But ... the 'giver' of Everything, the Anti-Messiah ... to his followers, will be unable to mend, The Ordained Sign ... replace his one rotting eye, with an healthy eye !
And I must ask ... Why do you people drag in for support ... 'Politicking' ... Stick to The Truth, Revealed In The Glorious Koran ... If you must Quote, thenquote from Koran ... whenever you intend to criticize or derogate Islam.
And why do you equate Obama, with the Mahdi ... your Anti-Christ ... are you a Democrat, though you talk like a Republican !
As regards the Mahdi ... please do not seek meanings in-between words ... Stick to The Word of Al'Quran ...
A Mahdi, is anyone, who Guides the Muslims ... and Muhammad, Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon him, is the Hadi e Barhaq ...
I do not talk of Religious Beliefs and affairs, which, at times, are quite distinct from the "Deen e Islaam."
As regards the "Beast" ... it shall emerge from the bowels of earth, nearing the End of earthly Times ...
I cannot say, if it will be a Dragon, or a Serpent ...
The Koranic Word Is, "Daabbat ul Arz" ... meaning the Beast of Earth.
And God ... does not have any sons ... or daughters, as you call the Angels to be.
The Lord, Commands ... Men, Women and Things, Unto Being.
And finally ... do not spread disinformation about Islam from behind the refuge of sundry Religious apocrypha ...
Spread Peace ... Brotherhood ... Equity and Justice ... among Humankind ... These, In The Word, stand for ... Islam.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on May 19, 2011:
Bless your heart, upal19. Our hearts are united in the fact that God will come to judge the world soon. I pray my hubs will shine tremendous Light into your spiritual man. See, we would be without HOPE ~ all of us, for all of us are sinful. We live in the flesh that dies. Our spirit man is who is saved by faith in our God and Savior ~ yes, Jesus Christ the LORD. He is "I AM". His name in Greek is Iesous, in Hebrew Yeshua from the root "Yehowshua", meaning "YHWH Saves". Have faith and know that God your Savior shall not remember your sin when Judgment comes.
Look at these passages of promise to His children (those saved by faith):
Jeremiah (the Prophet) 31:34 "And they will not need to teach their neighbors, nor will they need to teach their relatives, saying, 'You should know the LORD.' For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know me already,' says the LORD. 'And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins."
Psalm (David) 103:2 "As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us."
New Testament in 1 Thes 5:9-10 "For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him."
Romans 8:1 "Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
I love you in the love of the only LORD our GOD ~ the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob ~ revealed in Jesus Christ our Savior. I'm so glad you are reading. May His Spirit produce as the fruitful olive tree and may His oil of healing and anointing (Christ) be poured upon you and in you, in Jesus' name. Amen.
Ashraf Mir from Dhaka on May 19, 2011:
Yes, yes, I'm reading continuously your hubs. Your quotations are alright but there are questions unresolved yet. Whatever our present status are, we need to be enlightened. We need to know the truth so that we can salvage ourselves. whoever I am or you be we are to face that mighty god very soon. So, if we do wrong it will be irrecoverable.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on May 19, 2011:
Hi upal19, Yes God created everything. Col 1:15-16 “Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-- all things have been created through Him and for Him.”
So try to wrap your understanding around invisible and visible, when it comes to God. The invisible God is Spirit, yet manifested Himself in clouds, fire and flesh in the Old Testament, right? (Remember the LORD appeared to Abraham with two of His angels just before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah in Gen 18-19:1)
Do you believe God created Adam? You do believe Jesus was a real man, yet born of God’s Spirit and Mary? Let’s now look at a couple of scriptures:
Luke 3:38 “the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.” Adam was indeed called, ‘son of God’. This is before he sinned. God became a man, the second Adam, In order to reclaim our fallen state as ‘bastards’, so that we might become the sons of God again, through His shed blood.
1 Cor 15:45-47 “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam [was made] a quickening spirit. However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. The first man is from the earth, earthy; the second man is from heaven.”
Why did God not just appear as a full-grown spiritual man, as He did in the Old Testament? Heb 9:22 “And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.”
God said in many passages of the Old Testament, “There is no Savior besides Me.” Acts 20:28 states, “Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.”
Only God could raise the dead and will raise the dead. In John 10:17-18 Jesus states, “For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again. No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father."
The Old Testament is God concealed; the New Testament is God revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. The Prophets all foretold of the coming of Jesus as our God and Savior. Look at Isa 9:6 “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”
After His resurrection, the Spirit of God/Spirit of Christ came to us on the Day of Pentecost to indwell every believer who accepts His sacrifice for their sins (Acts 2). Rom 8:14 “For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” This is what it means to be ‘born again’ (John 3:7), ‘born of the Spirit’ (John 3:6) and ‘born of God’ (John 1:13).
I have many, many hubs on this subject. May I invite you to read “Let Me Tell You Who God Is” as a start, if you would like to understand more: https://discover.hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/...
Ashraf Mir from Dhaka on May 19, 2011:
The whole Christianity is based on the belief of this that Jesus is the son of god. I’ve some questions on this that if Jesus is the son of god then who is the wife of god? If Jesus is the son of god then who is Adam? Is he God’s first son? If Jesus, the son of god is sent to the earth then why there is no pre proclamation on this matter? At least Moses could tell this to Israelis. We find no such evidence. It is a horrible invention of bible writers that the god has adopted a son. This is insulting to the god who is the creator of everything. Moses told it in torah that a prophet as like as him will come and in bible Jesus is telling that someone will come after him. These are obviously pointing to the prophet Mohammed.
Ashraf Mir from Dhaka on May 18, 2011:
Juda's Daughter, when you call him god's son it is insulting to the god. In simple sense, god should be that god who is the creator of everything. Does the god need a son when he can create anything? This is a horrible mistakes by those who wrote the bible. If Jesus is god's son then who is Adam? God's first son? When you call someone god's son then the question comes, who is the wife of god? This is silly believing that god has adopted children. If Jesus is god's son then why he cried last moment "eli, eli, have you left me?"
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on May 05, 2011:
Hi Lisab, what someone ELSE believes has no impact on another's eternal destination. It is up to each person to find the Way to eternal life ~ and there is only one Way and few who find it. John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." If Allah is not a Father, then Jesus is not the Way to Allah.
When Jesus taught His disciples to pray in Matthew 6:9, He began with "Our Father, who art in HEAVEN..."
Allah's names align with the descriptions of Satan, the great Adverary of the Father God of the Bible. And if he is the Adversary and his Mehdi is the Antichrist, and the Isa of Islam is the False Prophet, let me tell you something....Jesus Christ, whom the Bible calls God and Savior, has already judged them to hell fire on the Day of Judgment. Jesus also said in Matthew 25:41 that those who follow the Adversary, the Antichrist and False Prophet will also be sent to hell fire.
Jesus said in John 3:18 "He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the NAME of the only begotten Son of God." His NAME is JESUS. Allah does not believe Jesus is the Son of God, and all who follow Allah and his 'messengers' (which is translated 'angels' in the Bible) are CONDEMNED ALREADY.
You have until you physically die to make a decision to follow the TRUE GOD. 1 John 5:20 states, "And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life."

Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on March 28, 2011:
That's what news and publications are for ~ if you are a parent, tell them to be careful only when necessary (i.e. if they tell you a joke about a Muslim, a Jew and a Christian they've been telling at school). Warn them to be wise, in that case, because if that joke is offensive to a Muslim child who then tells his parents, there is potential for more serious issues. Usually, kids can handle conflict better than their parents ~ ever witnessed sports events?

sewcorn, I'm not sure how to respond to your comment, but thank you for sharing. The Bible uses allegories throughout, which obviously have a deeper, spiritual meaning. Sometimes we can see these insights captured in movies, etc. Many of those movies I have not seen, so I have no response. I have heard of George Soros and I agree that he and Obama are definite players in the end-time prophecies (as are many others). What their roles are, exactly, is yet unclear. Obama certainly appears to be anti-America and Israel and pro-Islam (though 'covertly' so - he can't be too obvious - stealth is the word). Our nation would go under quickly if we didn't have the Lord here, praying and fighting back according to the Spirit. When the Spirit is no longer here (2 Thes 2:7) there will be no 'Mediator' to hinder the coming unleashed destruction. Destruction is not the end, however, but the beginning of life for the saints in the new millenium...then, for all eternity. This is what we focus on, for it is our hope in the time of trouble.

Hello, HISCHOSEN ~ Jesus said there would be a multitude of false prophets in the 'last days', and while the beginning of the 'last days' may very well have begun after the resurrection of Christ, the Popes have been around, yes. However, I believe this hub reveals THE false prophet to come, which is one Islam considers divine, who will bear the name of our Savior, Jesus ~ Isa in Arabic. Their Mahdi, however, will be of the name of Muhammad. He will be greater than their Isa. He is the Antichrist to come.
Rev 13:14 tells us "And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life." I'm sorry, but seeing a statue cry or the face of Jesus on a piece of toast doesn't count as a 'sign' powerful enough to deceive those who dwell on the earth. I think we'd best wake up and pay attention to what Islamic extremists are doing even now, that we are not in the dark or looking in the wrong direction.
I do appreciate the read and comment. Be blessed.

Hi Trish_M, Helal is Hebrew / hilal in Arabic, the Muslim language, translates as crescent moon and shahar as morning star. I hope this is helpful. Glad to see you!
Tricia Mason from The English Midlands on January 02, 2011:
Hi Judah's Daughter
As an intellectual exercise, interpreting various writings and ideas, this is fascinating, but I think that the conclusions drawn are dangerous.
Everyone is entitled to follow their own religion, or no religion. Certainly, we may see flaws in religions, but to consider them 'the antichrist', with all that goes with such an assumption, could, as I said, prove dangerous.
You note: 'the meaning of 'helel' (aka Lucifer) in Isaiah 14:12. "Star of the morning, son of the dawn" is a picture of a crescent and a star!'. I can see the star, but where is the crescent? In ancient times, celestial bodies, etc, etc, were often personified and deified. Venus was personified and has been considered to be 'Lucifer'.
The dawn itself was personified, and Venus / Lucifer was considered to be the child of the dawn.
How do you interpret the dawn as 'the crescent'?

ChristianSoldier, were those who worshipped Bel (the moon god) not in the world in Jesus' day? All the nations God judges thoughout the Old Testament are those now known as Islamic ones. Islam became a religion long after Jesus was here. Their Mehdi, who is the coming Antichrist (man) is to come up out of the abyss. The spirit of Antichrist and THE Antichrist are of the same, but not the same. I hope this helps. God bless you.
ChristianSoldier on December 26, 2010:
There is a flaw in your argument that says that Lucifer is the spirit of the anti-Christ.
"this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.” John 4
But yet on your other article you say that Lucifer is in the abyss, and he will rise and take up his place as the anti-Christ in the end days.

Hi libby101a! Thank you so much!! I'm so glad you came to read and confirm what is being revealed. God is faithful to confirm what is truth, and as we continue to watch with spiritual eyes and understanding, the more we realize how close His return really is. You might enjoy my latest hub called "The Last Seven Years", too!! I so appreciate you coming by. God bless you!!
libby101a from KY on October 28, 2010:
Great hub! I agree with all of it! Thanks for the Great read!
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on October 04, 2010:
Actually, sister, I believe any mention of the multi-headed (kingdoms) beast with horns (kings) is referring to the Dragon (Satan). He comes up out of the sea of peoples, nations, tribes and tongues and gives power, a throne, and authority to the Antichrist. The Antichrist comes up out of the abyss (the bottomless pit) and his name is Abaddon/Apollyon, the end-time king of Babylon. The false prophet comes up out of the earth and has two horns like a lamb and speaks as the Dragon (Satan) and he causes all to receive the mark of the beast (Antichrist). The Antichrist, who is a man (Isaiah 14:16) and Satan are not the same entity, for the Antichrist and false prophet are cast into the Lake of Fire a thousand years before Satan is. More of this in other hubs called "Is Lucifer the Devil?" and "Lucifer: the spirit of Antichrist!" More blessings on the way, sister Laurie! I love you to pieces!!
exjwlaurie on October 04, 2010:
This is awesome work Sister JD! You have provided so much insight for us here!
I find the "family resemblance" between Satan and his antichrist to be quite stunning.
Satan here mentioned in Revelation 12:3-4 “And another sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having 'seven heads' and 'ten horns', and on his 'heads were seven diadems'."
The "family portrait" surely shows the likeness of Satan, in Rev 13:1 where the antichrist is pictured:
“And he stood on the sand of the seashore. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having 'ten horns and seven heads', and on 'his horns were ten diadems', and on his heads were blasphemous names.”
Then it goes on to say that: "The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority", which we know he will wield for 42 months. (Rev 13:5) The final 3.5 years of the 70th week!
Like father, like son! "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between "your offspring" and hers; he will crush your head, and you will bruise his heel." (Gen 3:15) This first prophecy by Yehovah is soon to be finally and completely fulfilled!
Praise our amazing God!
I loved this hub Sister JD! You continue to inspire and edify me every time I visit your Ministry here! God Bless you Sister!
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on September 26, 2010:
Hi brother Abrushing1968!! I so appreciate your encouragement in the Lord. I am thankful for the great work God did and is doing through Walid Shoebat, aiding in the revelation of the end-time prophesies that are escalating before our eyes. The Lord is faithful to reveal His Light to those who are watching, as He instructed us to do. Those who refuse to believe the truth can't change it. May we watch, trust and look forward to the fact that all Christ said would happen will, and all He said He will do will be done.
In the days of Noah and Lot He rescued those in Him from the outpouring of His wrath. While I believe the saints will be here during the wrath of the Antichrist and his system, we won't be when the wrath of God makes the Antichrist's terror seem like child's play. Our GOD REIGNS and will forevermore! Hallelujah!
For more on this topic, I would like to extend an invitation to read my hub called "In the Air-On the Earth: The Returns of Christ": https://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/In-The-Ai...
May God continue to richly bless you, brother!!
Aaron Rushing from USA- Florida on September 25, 2010:
One of your best JD. Very interesting. Have to say I loved the video on mark of the beast. Profound.
Keep up the good work
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on September 24, 2010:
Amen, Ms Dee!! We're connected in Christ and so glad we've connected on HubPages! I just read one of your hubs on Islam ~ great job! God bless you!
Deidre Shelden from Texas, USA on September 24, 2010:
So glad to find a like mind regarding the antichrist-Islam connection. Wonderful to hear from you already. Look forward to reading your writing.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on September 24, 2010:
Hi Ms Dee!! God bless you! Walid is fascinating to listen to ~ I believe he is a great witness in these last days. God is so good to have delivered him and to use him for His glory at this critical time!! I would listen to him...the book "The Antichrist-Islam Connection" that I read listed several possiblities, Assyria (present day Syria) being the hottest.
You are such a wonderful blessing to my soul, sister! In His greatest love ~ JD
Deidre Shelden from Texas, USA on September 24, 2010:
Just finished Walid Shoebat's recent book "God's War on Terror" where he suggests the antichrist coming from Turkey. Have you seen it? It is amazing how it makes sense from the Daniel and Revelation prophecies. He also makes a case for the city of Babylon image in Rev to be in Saudi Arabia. Wondering what you think? So exciting to find your hub!
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on July 19, 2010:
Praise God, lifegate! Perhaps you could do a sequel!! I'd love to see your teaching on HubPages!! I'll be watching and waiting :-) God bless you!!
William Kovacic from Pleasant Gap, PA on July 19, 2010:
J-D, Thanks for the information. As a pastor I just finished teaching a series on Revelation. Wish I had seen your hub earlier as it gives more insight into some of the things we discussed.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on April 27, 2010:
Praise God, Jono. I so appreciate your blessings in our Lord!! He calls the saints to be watchful, alert and sober in these coming times ahead. May He grace us with the faith and stamina to overcome, sharing His love in extending His invitation of salvation to all who will believe and receive. God bless you as well!!
Jono on April 27, 2010:
All i want to say is that was an amazing read. Jesus bless you Judah's Daughter
Robert E Smith from Rochester, New York on March 22, 2010:
No, when Jimmy Carter was in office, the U.S. did many things against Israel. Jimmy Carter was very pro Islam. But since Carter, none has been so anti-Israel. His attitude and stances are what would be indicative of an antichrist so I agree with this being the spirit of the antichrist for sure. The spirit around him is evil.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on March 22, 2010:
Brother Bob, I know so many of our presidents and even other world and religious leaders have been suspected of being "the" Antichrist ~ but I am somewhat shocked and alarmed at this latest information as to the Hebrew words for "lightning from heaven" - "barak o bamah" ~ literally! I can't yet claim he IS "the" Antichrist, but the spirit of antichrist is most definitely in the world and I believe the end time prophecies are coming to pass. Is this not the first time in history that the U.S. it at odds with Israel? Is the U.S. the "head" (of the seven heads) that receives the "fatal wound"? God bless you as we stand in faith, enduring to the end.
Robert E Smith from Rochester, New York on March 22, 2010:
What a fitting name for a president that loves to avoid all things God, loves to promote the death of preborn, loves to promote Islam, loves to tear down all of the Judeo-Christian tradition and values that we were living under in this country. The spirit of the Anti-Christ surely lives here.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on March 10, 2010:
Hi Sistah drpastorcarlotta! Well, there are those who will deny Barack Hussein Obama has anything to do with Islam, yet we must stay alert, if nothing else. I pray for Defeated, that he is receiving the love and building up of his faith in the Lord. If one soul comes to know the love of Jesus throughout these troubled times, all of heaven rejoices and we rejoice as well!! God bless you, and thank you so much for your comment of edification. Love you!!
Pastor Dr Carlotta Boles from BREAKOUT MINISTRIES, INC. KC on March 10, 2010:
Obama a muslim, hmmmmmm.... I really don't like that! Let the truth be known!!! Sister you slammed this Hub!!! But what really caught my attention was your ministry to Defeated. Praise God for that!!!1 I LOVE YOU!
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on February 02, 2010:
Defeated, you are not defeated when you accept Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior by faith (believing He is the Son of God, Who died on the cross for your sins, paying them in full, and rose again on the third day)!
Romans 10:9 "If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
2 Cor 5:21 "He [God] made Him [Jesus] who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."
Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast."
Please come to Jesus ~ I have a hub called "Come to Jesus: SALVATION". Because of the fact we are defeated in sin, this is why Jesus Christ came to die for us!! We are redeemed through His shed blood on the cross. For this reason, He is called "The Lamb of God" who takes away the sins of the world. We are made Holy because He is Holy!
God bless you!!
Defeated on February 02, 2010:
I am unholy because I have been defeated by my sins.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on January 31, 2010:
Ibn Adam, I looked up Dijjal, Islam's prophesied false messiah, and the Bible's prophesied Antichrist (false messiah) and came across the video link below, which appears to reveal more facts about the Dijjal and the alignment of what is prophesied about our Jesus Christ (the Messiah).
It could be that the signs exercised by the two witnesses are the signs Islam expects to see before the coming of the Dijjal. The killing of the Dijjal has to do with the battle of Har-Mageddon, when Islam fights against him (the Bible's Jesus Christ).
This video speaks of the judgment of Christ, the sea of glass being heaven and the lake of fire being hell. When you stated, "He will have with him fire and water, but in reality the fire will be cold water while that what appears to be cold water will in reality be a blazing fire", that may indicate that all who follow the Bible's Antichrist will indeed willingly go into the fire thinking it is heaven.
Now, Walid said that Islam's Antichrist is our Christ and our Christ is Islam's Antichrist ~~ does this not appear to be true? Here is the video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmKj8RtWc8M
Let us search for truth with an open heart and an open mind
And God willing, the truth we shall find.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on January 05, 2010:
godpreacher, I am thankful you came by and confirm the research. I recently read more on the Antichrist being called the "Assyrian". The Book "What Is the Antichrist-Islam Connection" actually ponders whether he will arise out of New Syria. We will stay sober and on the alert, for the Day of the Lord is at hand. Praise God!
godpreacher from Atlanta,Ga. on January 05, 2010:
Great and insightful hub,
It's already been said, but thank you for doing such extensive research for our good and edification. We must be aware of what's going on around us daily.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on December 29, 2009:
traf, thank you for coming by. Amen, and God bless you!
traf on December 29, 2009:
thats right jd God is in control,everything is after the counsel of his will.Amen to that
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on December 09, 2009:
Thank you, Get Free Visitors :-) I hope you were "enlightened" and strengthened in faith in the God of the Bible. God bless you!

Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on December 03, 2009:
Hallelujiah! God reveals through His children to His children, amen! It must be time we know this to prepare us for what is happening and what is to come soon. He is faithful and will see us through!! I pray for our Muslim neighbors, that they will be enlightened and feel the calling of the true God of the Bible, the God of their fathers (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), Who gave His life to save them and give them eternal life. I pray the Holy Spirit draw as many as will receive Him, every minute of every day! God bless you!
Kebennett1 from San Bernardino County, California on December 03, 2009:
Judah's Daughter, this is an awesome hub! Your research is extensive and you are appreciated for your hard work. I can see the connections easily!
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on November 20, 2009:
Nia L, I have placed your comment and my response to your comment on my Carrie Bradshaw profile here: https://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/Response-...
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on November 02, 2009:
Good point, John! And thank you for the compliment! Actually, the "Dragon" arises out of the "sea" of nations (Islamic), who give power to the second beast (Antichrist - Mahdi); and the third beast (false prophet - Isa) exercises all the authority of Antichrist, who is given power by the Dragon. Fascinating ~ reality is upon us as we watch all of this escalate into fulfillment of prophecy.
John Z from Midwest on November 02, 2009:
This is an awesome hub. I find it interesting to note that scripture says that the 2nd beast exercises all the authority and power of the first beast. I have always inferred from this that the second beast exercises the power because the first beast would be incapable of doing that without the second. This is a clear picture of the UN - powerless now, but allied with a world religion - powerful indeed.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on October 17, 2009:
Hi Pastor! Praise God, and may He always be lifted up, for we are his kids, we are called to various ministries and witness, and I'm so blessed by your encouragement. I wish I could just let you know how much your hubs have blessed me and multitudes will find you on HubPages, and know you are a God-send!!
Destined To Win on October 17, 2009:
Again thank you for such a marvelous and impacting up. As always, it is so evident that you take the time to do quality research which informs and enlightens. Thank you for unashamedly lifting up Jesus Christ. You are a blessing!
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on October 12, 2009:
Hi starbug! My sister in miracle-working! I'm glad you were enlightened and informed with this information. It just kind of fell together because of researchers and exposure of the Qu'ran, aligning it to what we already know about Bible prophecy. It surely does fit like a tailored glove. I am encouraged to also hear multitudes of Muslims are getting saved via dreams and appearances of Jesus Christ. I praise God for this! Many are deceived, and Jesus is delivering the innocent lambs that truly seek Him and love Him. He will separate the wheat from the tares, and it appears He is calling His people out of Babylon even now!! Hallelujiah!
starbug5052 on October 12, 2009:
"WOW, your right I found your information very helpful and interested. I thank you for your hard work researching all this. Thank You for sharing this, very well worded sister. God Bless
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on October 09, 2009:
Grim, the beast who was, is not, and will come is the "son of destruction" or the "Antichrist". Mohammed, or the Mahdi would fit this description. The false prophet will be their Jesus (Isa) who will cause all the nations (Muslim nations) to worship the Mahdi. Because it would offend the Muslim people for the Mahdi to claim to be god, as the Antichrist will do, this dictator may very well "change" Islam into an even worse religion of dictatorship...and whoever doesn't go along with it will be killed, just like Jews and Christians (stated in the book).
Look at what happened to those who protested Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stealing the election. They were attacked right there in the streets, left "choking in their own blood".
GRIM REAPER on October 08, 2009:
Islam, you sucked up your you tube videos hook line and sinker, Mohammed the False Prophet, how about that. Islam the False Prophet, how about that.
Judah's Daughter (author) from Roseville, CA on October 08, 2009:
Hi brother no body ~ I so appreciate your faithful readership and support. I can't imagine seeing prophecy unfold and the supernatural things yet to happen before our eyes? It seems soooo close, and to think this Country's only been called the United states for such a short period of time. It's like we're just beginning, then to see the end! While it causes my soul unrest to see the intensity of what's going on in Middle East, I just pray and know the urgency of reaching out, exposing what is to be exposed and hope for the salvation of those whom God has called to come out of Islam. I pray salvation for the lost every day until we see Him coming in the clouds!! I love you, brother!
Robert E Smith from Rochester, New York on October 08, 2009:
Yeshua love me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. It is facinating that this series of events is unfolding before our very eyes. The intensity of hate required for the emotion of these times to come is here right now. So many people have died already for Jihad. So many people suffer in the name of Allah. Our government seems to be giving way to Islamic nations all the time. God is the architect of this end time play and we watch as the curtain rises and heralds the Devil's end. What wondrous days to live in. I love you.
