ISLAM AND ANTICHRIST
There is a free printable, foldable, tract on this subject available at this link.

It's important to investigate the history of Mecca. http://www.historyofmecca.com

YouTube of this subject: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4D9qHIbnrws

John 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Sura (19:88-89)  They say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!"  89  Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!

Exodus 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
John 8:58  Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
John 10:30  I and [my] Father are one.

John 20:31  But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

1 John 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].

Sura 19:88 They say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!" 89 Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!

Surah 9.30 The Jews call 'Uzair a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the Son of God. That is a saying from their mouth; (In this) they but imitate what the Unbelievers of old used to say. God's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

No surprise then that the single most egregious - and only unforgivable sin - among Muhammad's followers would be committed, if a Muslim were to confess that Jesus is the Son of God. A sin worse than child rape or cold-blooded mass murder.

1John 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

To help in understanding please see the website The History of Mecca that explores the origins of Islamic tradition.

We love Muslims. We love Muslims so much that we dislike Islam.  Islam is antichrist, which the verses above make clear since "shirk" is manifest as a denial that God has a Son.  

In the following video sophist Islamic leader Ahmad Deedat combines pieces of two separate verses from God's Holy Word, to create his own verse, that he then goes on to suggest is a "test" for antichrist.  The subject verses are:

1 John 4:1-3  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.  2  Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:  3  And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1 John 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].

In the U-Tube Mr. Deedat is asked "...can you vouch for the fact that Mohammed was not antichrist".  

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4D9qHIbnrws

Since Mr. Deedat quoted 1John 4:1 straight out of the King James Version of the Holy Bible almost flawlessly, it is difficult to imagine that he could misquote the very next verse so appallingly incorrectly, by accident.

He misquotes 1 John 4:2 which reads:
"...every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:"
where he exchanged part of 1John 2:22:
"...that Jesus is the Christ..."

Mr. Deedat's hybrid creation then became:

"...the spirit that confesseth that Jesus is the Christ is of God:"

Mr. Deedat then goes on to suggest that the verse he fabricated is a "test" for antichrist, but in true Islamic sophist tradition it is in fact a false test, built on a false version of God's Holy Word.

In his effort to advance an illusion that Islam is not antichrist, Mr. Deedat's combining and confusing snippets of these two separate verses resulted in obscuring the sad truth that Islam is indeed antichrist.  

RISEN

The Bible also explains that Jesus Christ is risen in the flesh.  After His resurrection Jesus said to those around him:

Luke 24:39  Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

Inscription on the Islamic mosque the Dome of the Rock denies this: "Jesus, son of Mary, is only an apostle of God, and his Word which he conveyed unto Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from him."  

A specific denial that Jesus Christ is risen in the flesh. It continues:

"Believe therefore in God and his apostles, and say not Three.  It will be better for you.  God is only one God.  Far be it from His transcendent majesty that he should have a son."

Islam denies that Jesus is the Son of God.  

1John 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].

Jews recognize the Son through Old Testament scriptures but some haven't yet recognized that Jesus is that promised Son as God himself may have sovereignly blinded some of them. This subject is described as a "mystery" discussed in Romans chapter 11.



Mr. Deedat further suggested that: "...the prophet that says that Jesus is the Christ is of God".  But let's consider what he left out:

1 John 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

Perhaps Mr. Deedat left out "...that denieth the Father and the Son.", because Islam denies the Son.

The most important fundamental in Islam is "shirk", manifest specifically as denying that God has a Son.  This is "that spirit of antichrist".  Each and every Muslim that denies the Son is antichrist, and also is AN antichrist.  

John 20:31  But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

So we learn:

2 John 1:9  Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.


MORE SCRIPTURES

The term "son of God" occurs 47 times in the King James Version of the Holy Bible. An example:

John 1:34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

The 47 verse count above doesn't even include the large volume of verses that simply refer to the "Son", such as:

Mark 1:11 And there came a voice from heaven, [saying], Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Sura (19:35)  It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, "Be", and it is.

1 John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship [is] with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

Sura (5:72-73)  They do blaspheme who say: "Allah is Christ the son of Mary." But said Christ: "O Children of Israel! worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Whoever joins other gods with Allah,- Allah will forbid him the garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help.  73  They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Sura (19:88-89)  They say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!"  89  Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!

1 John 4:14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son [to be] the Saviour of the world.

One cannot accept that Jesus is the Christ, and deny that He is the Son of God, and be in Christ.  Muslims claim that Jesus is a great prophet, but how could they hold that their prophet is a liar?  

Matthew 27:43  He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

In spite of Mr. Deedat's efforts, God's Holy Word will never serve Islam.  His exercise in, and abuse of, God's Holy Word is obvious.  One cannot accept parts of God's Word - as Mr. Deedat attempts - while ignoring the rest.  One must accept it entirely, or not at all.  The Muslims cheering for Jesus Christ in the background on the U-Tube offers hope that these folks could come to repentence through a presentation and understanding of the truth.

If you are a Muslim suffering from a God sized hole in your heart, why not visit A Muslim Journey to Hope (on this link) and view video testimonials of Muslims who have come to know the love of the one true God, through a personal relationship, and the inner peace that only He can bring.



1John 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].

Imams discourage their flocks from reading the Bible because it exposes Islam as being the direct opposite.  Because of "shirk" every Muslim must deny the Son.  This is "that spirit of antichrist".

"The Jews call 'Uzair a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the Son of God. That is a saying from their mouth; (In this) they but imitate what the Unbelievers of old used to say. God's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! (Surah 9.30)

It would be absurd to suggest that the God of the Christians and Jews, would curse the Christians and Jews.  Were it the same God it would seem he would have to be schizophrenic and bi-polar.  In the verse above we again find "that spirit of antichrist".

Christians and Jews well understand from scripture, who it is that directly opposes us and our our God.


POLYTHEISM

Regarding any suggestion that Christians are polytheists, we understand from the New Testament:

Mark 12:29  ...The Lord our God is one Lord: ...
32 ...there is one God; and there is none other but he...

Because Jesus explained:

John 10:30  I and [my] Father are one.

Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh that came to the world.  

Matthew 1:23  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

So it's an Islamic fable that suggests that Christians are polytheists.  The Bible says:

John 5:23 That all [men] should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

We learn:

1 John 2:18  Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

ALL of the verses in the Bible that include the term "antichrist" have been explored in the preceding. We learned that:

Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:
He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:

Islam is antichrist (shirk). Anyone that denies the Son is AN antichrist.

Deedat, Islam and Hitler


GOOD FRUIT AND EVIL FRUIT

On the video where Mr. Ahmed Deedat created his own bible verse and then suggested it was proof that Islam is not antichrist, he later went on to discuss verses in respect to good fruit and evil fruit, they are:

Matthew 7:17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.  18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

As for Mr. Deedat's spurious claim that Mussolini and Hitler were Christians, their actions were the exact opposite of the life of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the New Testament.  

Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

John 13:34  A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

However Hitler's actions were stunningly consistent with the anti-Jew sentiment, rhetoric, and teachings of Islam and actions of it's prophet, as the daily news, and the Hadith above clearly show:  

Hadith: “Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!”

The Mufti of Jerusalem was Hitler's Middle East man. Two German panzer divisions were Muslim.

Please visit the U-Tube "Islam Seeds of Hatred" to view the stunning parallel of the indoctrination of the Islamic equivalent of the Hitler youth.


Here's a video of an interview with a 3-year old named Basmallah from MemriTV:


Interviewer - "Are you a Muslim?"
Basmallah - "Yes"
I - "Do you know the Jews?
B - "Yes"
I - "Do you like them?"
B - "No"
I- "Why don't you like them?"
B - "Because"
I - "Because they are what?"
B - "They are apes and pigs"
I - "Because they are apes and pigs? Who said that about them?"
B - "Our God."
I - "Where did he say that about them?"
B - "In the Koran"

(Muhammad did eventually succumb to the revenge poisioning he received at the hand of a Jewess, whose husband he had slain, and whom he then had pressed into sexual slavery.)

Women are property in Islam.  Here's a video of a Saudi woman on the subject.  Some are kept locked in their houses by their husbands.

Check the menu "Antisemitism Documentation" at MemriTV for much more.  Also "Indoctrination of Children".

Jews as apes and pigs in a U-Tube Islamic sermon.


Quran Sura (5:60)  Say: “Shall I point out to you something much worse than this, (as judged) by the treatment it received from Allah? those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil;- these are (many times) worse in rank, and far more astray from the even path!”
Sura (7:166)  When in their insolence they transgressed (all) prohibitions, We said to them: “Be ye apes, despised and rejected.”

THE RESTORATION OF THE JEWS

The Jews did not push anybody out of Israel.  By the early 1800's when the Jews began their restoration to their land, it had been rendered desolate by 1100 years of Islam.

In "A History of the Jews" - Paul Johnson - page 321:  "Between 1827 and 1839, largely through British efforts, the population of Jerusalem rose from 550 to 5,500 and in all Palestine it topped 10,000 - the real beginning of the Jewish return to the Promised Land. In 1838 Palmerston appointed the first western vice-consul in Jerusalem, W.T. Young, and told him 'to afford protection to the Jews generally'."

The world war going on today is not new. The Islamic empire has been at war against the non-Islamic world for 1300 years.  The Islamic Second Jihad is the image of the First Jihad, which was wounded in the Battle of Tours, and later healed, by Western wealth transfer.


THE TWO BOOKS

Simply compare the two books:

Bible: Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Quran: (Sura 8:12) I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them  

Sura (5:51)  O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.


Mark 12:29  And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:  30  And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment.  31 And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.  

Hadith: “Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!”

Genesis 12:2-3   And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.


TAQIYYAH

It is hard to imagine that Mr. Deedat could have been in such error, and omitted so much, accidentally.  In his near perfect recitation of 1 John 4:1 he exhibited a pretty fair command of the scriptures, with this first verse that he chose to serve his ends.  Perhaps his personal spin on the very next verse was an exercise in "taqiyyah", or lying in the way of Allah (also spelled taquyya, taqiya, taqwa, taqi, taqiyya).  Lying before your God, in the cause of your God, is an unimaginable concept for Christians.  However Muslims can even deny they are Muslims if they believe it will advance the cause of Islam.  It is a far different matter for Christians: Matthew 10:33  But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.


THE GOD OF THE BIBLE

In spite of Mr. Deedat's feeble efforts, God's Holy Word will never serve Islam.  Jesus IS the only begotten Son of God.

One must make a choice between the 1600 year compilation of the writings of the numerous prophets, and the miraculously fulfilled prophecies of God's Holy Word, in addition to all of the heavily witnessed miracles.  

Or a book written about the unwitnessed "revelations" of a single illiterate 6th century desert dwelling caravan plunderer, that was preserved on leaves and stones.  Once it finally was written down, it was later collected up, and all but one version burned - on two separate occasions - under Abu Bakr and later under Uthman.

In stark contrast, discovery of some of the original papyri of the Holy Bible at Qumran in the late 1940's, demonstrate the textual accuracy with which the Bible (Textus Receptus) has been handed down to us through the centuries.  Rest assured that it was not corrupted to demonize Islam.  It had been meticulously copied thousands of times, and translated into many languages, before Muhammad was ever born.  Islam is a testament against itself.

Since the Quran nullifies - indeed is the opposite of - so much of the 1600 year compilation of God's Holy Word, one must choose between the prophets of the Bible, or Muhammad alone.  Between the God of the Christians and the Jews, or the one of Islam that curses Christians and Jews.  The Bible makes clear to Christians and Jews exactly who it is that opposes the Christians and Jews.

It should be no surprise then, that Imams discourage their flocks from reading the Bible.  Why not read it, or even listen to it, for yourself - for free?  This is the information age, not a 6th century desert.

YOUR ETERNAL LIFE IS AT STAKE

The time for choosing where you will spend your eternity is now.  Any one of us could die at this moment.  Will it be the smoking section, or the non-smoking section?

The Quran says that Muslims must pass by Hell first, before going to their version of heaven.  The sad truth is, there is a "great gulf fixed" between the two, and there is no commuting between them.

If you increasingly find a God sized hole in your heart, why not visit A Muslim Journey to Hope (on this link) and view video testimonials of Muslims who have come to know the love of the one true God, through a personal relationship, and the inner peace that only He can bring.  

Visit Walid Shoebat's site.  He is a former PLO terrorist, today a saved Christian, who loves Jews even after having been taught to hate them by Islam.

1 John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship [is] with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.


THE SECOND JIHAD

As the Second Jihad gains ground around the world it's interesting to consider:

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9  [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  

We can only wonder as to what "strong delusion" is being suggested that God sends to those who received not the love of the truth, and that they should believe a lie. This may well apply to the apostate church too.

But at least as Christians we are comforted:

John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus IS THE TRUTH.

Matthew 6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.  8  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Consider the above verses, and then consider salat.

From "Islam Reviewed":
"Fight those who believe not in God [Allah] and his apostle [Mohammed], nor acknowledge the religion of truth [even if they are] of the people of the book [i.e. Jews and Christians], until they pay jizya [humiliating tax] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued [enslaved]. (Sura 9:29).
A being who is determined to wipe out Jews and Christians, now who might that be? The Bible has the answer:
Revelation 12:17 And the dragon (Satan) was wroth with the woman (Israel), and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God (the Jews today), and have the testimony of Jesus Christ (the Christians)."

The name of the God of Abraham is YHWH (Yahweh), which means "I AM".  Allah does not mean "I AM" in Arabic.

Exodus 3:14  And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.



Again, if you are a Muslim suffering from a God sized hole in your heart, why not visit A Muslim Journey to Hope (on this link) and view video testimonials of Muslims who have come to know the love of the one true God, through a personal relationship, and the inner peace that only He can bring.  Your eternal life is at stake.

Please visit beholdthebeast.com for an in-depth discussion of Islam and Israel in prophecy.  



The church has let down 1.5 billion people in the world today.  One quarter of mankind.  It would seem that Muslims are invisible to western churches.  Is this how we love those neighbors?  This blindness may in part be because some churches actually hold that we worship the same God, as a few Muslims claim, but likely don't believe.  The Pope even made a public display of kissing the Koran, and the next Pope bowed to Mecca from inside a mosque. Some time later even indicating he knew God's judgment on the Jews.

Surah 4.171 People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.
