The Devil

Let’s be honest, it’s easy to acknowledge the love of some generic god. By leaving out specifics, no one’s feelings get hurt and the referenced god can be a yoga-induced inner deity or a blade of grass. But it’s a different story altogether when justifying the fable like caricature of what appear to be imaginary beasts as are depicted in books such as Daniel, Jonah and Revelation. The imagery of wingless eagles, insatiable carnivores, and that of four-winged and four-headed leopards is difficult enough. Then we are expected to understand the meaning of earthly dragons, seven-headed beasts, horns and dragon riding prostitutes.

Such fantastical characters are seemingly more suited for a fictitious movie titled Avatar meets Narnia than they are for our twenty-first century modern society.

It seems that the love of God is quick to be accepted by most. But even this third of mankind has difficulty in keeping a straight face when a seven-headed, horned demon is introduced with a harlot upon its back – like some sort of twisted, progressive cowboy upon his mystical horse.

Like a literal Jonah is to Moby Dick; Revelation is to the coming horned man.

What happens when the imagery fades and the beasts are replaced by historical kingdoms and men? What happens in our world when the beasts of foreign gods pursue, subdue and kill the creatures of the God? What does it mean when men kill in honor and service to their god? And finally, what happens when most inhabitants of today’s world recognize and understand that the dragon is a named impostor of God, that the beasts are actual bodies of men, and that a prostitute simply represents the distribution of virtue for the sake of worldly gain and fleeting pleasures?

Within the following detailed version of Revelation 13, the reader may come to understand that the dragon, the beasts, the prostitute and the killing are all very real and shockingly obvious. We no longer need to look ahead in order to anticipate what might or might not be. In recognition of what God has warned, we need merely look back through history. Unlike the future, history is not nearly as susceptible to dismissal by interpretation.

So, find a Bible and follow along as Revelation 13 is told as never before.

__________

“And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea.” – The chapter begins with the enraged devil standing with one foot on the land and one foot in the sea (the shore). He is enraged because the flow of his torrential tide of people or his bitter waters, which he has unleashed and personally directed, has failed to accomplish his mission to convert and/or annihilate. Those that he targets are plainly named as believers of the Biblical God; Jews and Christians.

He stands with one foot on the sea amongst men and one foot on the land amongst the world’s kingdoms – just like the fallen angel of Rev 10:1. In that verse, the rainbow above the devil’s head is not the crown of a prince but the promise of God who reigns over him. The promise is to remember the everlasting covenant he has made to his creatures. – Genesis 9:13-17

The angel in Rev 10 doesn’t soar on wings of eagles, he’s been grounded. And he grounded here with us. With the metaphorical wings ripped from his body, the ‘great dragon was hurled down – that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray (Rev – 12:9).

Now, standing with his feet upon the earth like a man (Da 7:4), the hearts of men were given over to his ways of deceit, delusion, and self-fulfillment. It is of those stumbling stones that the shouts of the seven thunders echoes can be heard (Rev 10:3). The seven thunders can be found in the little scroll he holds in his hands. The little scroll is the Qur’an. It’s so-called ‘little’ because it has one-tenth the word content of the Bible. Within the first chapter of this little book is a glimpse of the grounded angel’s image. The “Opening” as it is called has only seven verses (Qur’an 1:1-7). And these ‘seven’ verses outline his misdirection and his false agreement (covenant) for a people who refused to love the truth (2 Thessalonians 2:10). For his rebellion, he was sent from heaven to earth. He and his false prophet are the powerful delusion, sent by God, to formulate the lie that would accomplish God’s purpose.

The liar has grand titles such as; the great dragon, the ancient serpent, the devil, and Satan. He is the fallen angel who has multiple faces and over a hundred names. He existed and was worshipped by five kingdoms before Jesus. Like so many Gogs and their deluded Magogs, Caesar and his Romans were of the sixth kingdom to be led astray by the devil’s bribes of power, wealth and over-indulgences. It was the Romans who were the sixth to oppress God’s people and who were complicit in nailing Jesus to a tree. There would be two more.

In the 2,300 hundred years spanning the enslavement of the Hebrews by the Egyptians to the fall of the Roman Empire, there were five kingdoms that ruled and collapsed upon the ground surrounding Israel. The next would be a long time coming.

Although the next kingdom’s beginnings were in the early seventh century, the spirit of authority and rule that drove the previous empires was imprisoned. Without their authorized earthly king, the Roman Empire fell and the upcoming kingdom was limited to a desert loner and the unguarded camps of a nomadic people. Out of that little region in the world known as Arabia, an unlearned (illiterate) man and his gang of thieves began a theocracy that would spread exponentially in the second millennium.

A thousand years after Jesus was crucified and the apostles laid down their pens, the devil was released and all hell broke out (literally) in the land of many kingdoms. He appeared with a new name Allah and with a new worshipping kingdom Islam. All the kingdoms of the earth were once again his. And with his new nation he made a covenant. And the covenant can be wrapped up in seven short verses.

In the middle of ‘seven,’ he (the devil) puts an end to the sacrifice and offering of Jesus. But the end of the offering is only for those who ‘refused to love the truth and so be saved.’ Like a queen directing her workers and drones, he (she) directs his (her) hive in the following manner: “Thee (Allah) do we serve and Thee (Allah) do we beseech for help.” – Qur’an 1:4

For further proof that Allah is the seventh, eighth and final face of the devil, there is ample evidence represented by his many other names. “They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.” – Rev 9:11

Allah’s 84th name is Malik-Ul-Mulk, king (owner) of the kingdom – Qur’an 3:26. Like Abaddon and Apollyon, his 62nd name is al-Mumit – the Destroyer. Can it really be just coincidence that the god of Islam is the god of those who attacked Manhattan and Washington on 9/11, whose name is Destroyer and that Destroyer is the name of the angel of the Abyss in Rev 9:11?

Is it further coincidence that the queen which God addresses in Isa 47 is described as being called tender and delicate while Allah, Ar-Rahman Ar Rahim (his 2nd and 3rd names) mean tender and delicate? Or that the masquerading angel of light in 2Co11:14, is the name adopted by Allah as An-Nur, a brightly shining star in Qur’an 24:35?

Not-so-coincidentally, his prophet and messenger is also called a bright shining star in chapter 86. He’s actually referred to as Al-Tariq, the bright morning star. With both Allah and his prophet Muhammad being called the bright shining morning star and being enshrined on the Temple Mount, how do they not fill the bill of 2Th 2:4?

 

“…he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.”

 

With all of this “imagery,” we have yet to get beyond Rev 13:1…

“And I saw a beast coming out of the sea.” – The book of Revelation is thought to have been written by the apostle John – the only one of Christ’s apostles not to die a martyr’s death. To die a martyr’s death in the way of Jesus is not to be confused with dying a martyr’s death in the way of Allah. In the former, men are killed for their testimony of Jesus. In the latter, men kill and lust beheading because of others who testify for Jesus and because of the word of God. In the lie that is Islam, the martyr who was killed for testifying for the word of God has become the martyr who has died while killing in the way of Allah. One is murdered and one is the murderer.

In this vision, John saw something vulgar and horrifying coming out of the Abyss from under the sea. Not only does it rise from deep within the earth but it rises out of the sea of men, the devil’s bitter waters of death.

“He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each a blasphemous name.” – The beast he sees in his vision is the sum of seven murderous empires which inhabit and have risen or which will raise, one after the other, from the ten settled territories surrounding Israel. From both, historical and Biblical description we know that the first murderous kingdom which opposed and oppressed the Jews was Egypt. Since the Egyptian Empire, there have been six others who have shared these same lands and done so with clear authority, they are; Assyria, Babylon, Persia (with the Medes), Greek, Rome, and Islam. Each of these empires is named blasphemously because they each denied the God of heaven. They bowed down to and worshipped their own rulers and gods.

Although they were an undeniable oppressor and murderous bunch, Hitler and the Nazi Party (Gog and Magog of Eze 39) are not considered here. They never achieved a ruling status and their horn (territory) did not encompass the land of Israel. However, they did circle the camp of a scattered Israeli people. What happened next is a matter of history – history that is portrayed in detail by the entire chapter of Ezekiel 39.

The ten territories have existed since the great flood in the days of Noah. In fact, each, with the exception of Persia, is named after the descendants of two of Noah’s sons; Japheth and Ham (Genesis 10). Like Japheth, the third, Shem, also had a son named Meshech. It seems that God wants us to know that there’s a Judas in every family.

These sons are listed as those designated settlements whose territories will grow into fragmented, individual countries (numbering much more than ten) and who will oppose Israel. They are the people of the ‘whole world’ that surrounds her. They are; Cush, Put, Meshech, Tubal, Togarmah, Gomer, Persia, Sheba, Dedan, and the merchants of the Mediterranean or Tarshish. Beginning with the western shore of the Red Sea, these territories are listed in order of their appearance in a clockwise swing – see Ten Kings.

The exception of Persia is significant in that it, Iran, stands out alone. Considering current events in the Middle East, it is likely Persia leads the entire Nation of Islam against the tiny spec of people and land called Israel.

“The beast I saw resembled a leopard…” – The leopard, as described in Daniel 7:6, had four wings, four heads and the authority to rule. It is the third beast listed in Daniel. It came after the beast describing Muhammad which was listed after the beast describing the fallen angel. The four heads represent the four patriarchs after Muhammad. The silver signet ring, soon to be known as the number of his name, of Muhammad’s Islam was passed on to Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali.

The four wings are the four collectors of the Qur’an; Darda, Jabal, Thaibit, and Sa’id – Qur’an I-65, Bukhari 66:8, and the Manual of Hadith XXXI, 8.

From the efforts of the four head patriarchs, the collection of the four carriers of Muhammad’s sayings, and the spirit of the antichrist – was developed the Qur’an and with it – the authority of Islam to rule.

“…but had feet like those of a bear…” – The bear, as described in Daniel 7:5, had three ribs in its mouth. Like Da 7:24 tells us, a king would rise from these lands and subdue three of the territorial kingdoms before him. Those territories are the three listed in Ezekiel 38:12-13. Among them are the merchants of Tarshish – the trading caravan routes that Muhammad grew to know so well. Then, of course, there is Medina (Dedan) and Mecca (Sheba). These three territories were the un-walled villages of Muhammad’s own people (the Quraysh) of whom he looted, raped, enslaved, sold and deluded with the lies of his foreign god. These were of the three that Muhammad clenched between his own teeth. It was he, Muhammad who was Gog in Ezekiel 38:10-13; his companions – Magog.

Like the devil is king over his earthly kingdoms; Gog is king and Magog is his kingdom. Is there any wonder why Biblical scholars have been arguing over whether or not the events of Ezekiel 38-39 have already occurred? It’s because a sliver of 38 and all of 39 have occurred… Ezekiel 38:1-9 and 14-23 are being teed up now. In these remaining verses, Gog is the devil and Magog is the balance of the world around and surrounding Israel.

Like Meshech and Judas, there are also two Barack Hussein Obamas. Jesus was betrayed from within his twelve when Judas revealed Jesus’ position to the Pharisees. On February 2nd, Obama’s Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, disclosed Israel’s window of opportunity to attack to the Persians. Israel has no ally against the carnivorous bear but God.

In 1,400 years of Islamic hive building and flesh eating, how much stinging and gnashing of teeth is enough? Does Jesus now prepare for battle in the Valley of Armageddon or do we need to prepare to choose between submission to Allah and death?

In 2 Kings 2:23-25, a curse is called upon the world by Elisha which is described as two bears who maul forty-two youths. In chapter 9, verse 40 of the Qur’an, Abu Bakr, the first to be passed the authority of Muhammad’s silver signet ring, is called the second of two. Upon Muhammad’s flight from Mecca to Medina, he was accompanied by only one other – Abu Bakr. During their flight, they hid in caves – just like two bears.

As for the forty-two youths they mauled? The Bible had forty-two authors and the Qur’an consists exclusively of Muhammad’s sayings as recorded by forty-two scribes – Qur’an I-57.

The significance of the two bears becomes apparent again in Rev 13:11. But we have yet to get through 13:2.

“…and a mouth like that of a lion.” – Remember our discussion about the “loud shout like that of a lion” in Rev 10:3 and the voices of the seven thunders he spoke? Daniel 7:4 tells us who the lion is and how he got here. He was one of God’s own who soared in His presence. But he rebelled against God, his wings were torn off (Da 7:4) and he was hurled to the earth, his angels with him (Rev 11:9).” And like the serpent that first deceived Eve in the Garden, the fallen angel was given the heart of all men for the soul purpose of instilling deceit and causing them to perish. He is a lover of death – the Destroyer. And all who hate God love death (Pr 8:36).

There is a fourth beast in Daniel 7:7 that is terrifying and it has ten horns. It represents the long dead Ottoman Empire. It might be mentioned here that adding up all of the heads of all four of the beasts in the book of Daniel is the sum of seven – and it has ten horns.

“The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.” – The devil gave the seven kingdoms of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome and Islam his power of death, his earthly wealth and his great authority. He attempted to do the same with Jesus:

 

“The devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. ‘All this I will give to you,’ he said, ‘if you will bow down and worship me.’” Matthew 4:8-9

“The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, ‘I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. So if you worship me, it will all be yours.’” Luke 4:5-7

Unlike the seven kings and their kingdoms, Jesus responded, “Away from me Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’” (Mt 4:10, Lk 4:8) Jesus’ answer was delivered to Satan after the five kingdoms of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, and Greece had fallen. He delivered his answer to the devil while he walked this earth which was during the sixth kingdom – the Roman Empire.

As we’ve now learned, Islam was the seventh face of Satan. Those who bow to Allah have been given the throne and authority to rule the ‘whole world’ around Israel. On September 11, 2001 Islam stretched out their satanic authority to rule and extended the hand of the dragon in a fiery attack upon the United States of America. There has been nothing but war and death since. Because they are the devil’s property, there will be nothing but war and death until it all ends. – Daniel 9:26

It’s Islam that carries in the torch and it’s Islam that looks toward a world that submits exclusively to Allah’s rules. Anyone who has any doubts about Islam’s creeping advances and oppressive infestation need only look as far as Europe and listen to the rulers of Germany’s Merkel and France’s Sarkozy as they declare multiculturalism “a total failure.”

Before we move on to the next verse, this is the most appropriate time to remind the reader that both of Barack Obama’s fathers and his grandfather were Muslim. Not only has he stated that Islam is a ‘great religion’ but he also has been given a throne, great authority and the most frightening power on the face of the planet to rule. He’s a self-declared rebel and revolutionary who holds hands with the likes of Bill Ayers, Van Jones and Jeremiah Wright – all who would stand behind the statement:

 

“Not God Bless America but God damn America! It’s time to fundamentally change the United States of America.”

 

“One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.” – Wounded and thought dead after being defeated in World War I, both the Germans and the Ottomans (Islam) would live to fight another day. Not only would the nation of Islam rise again, but it would rise again as the eighth beastly kingdom.

I’m going to divert to another chapter here for a bit. The relevance of the beast is further explained in chapter 17 of Revelation and this is the most opportune time to visit it.

In Rev 17, a prostitute appears. She is the metaphorical rib of man, expressed as a woman who sold her virtue and drank from Satan’s cup of filth. She appears in the beginning of the Bible as one who allows Satan to corrupt man and she ends the Bible as the representative of Man totally corrupted. She is the imagery of evil and deceit that dwells in the heart of every man. And she rides upon the beast of Satan’s seven kingdoms.

As John observes this vision, he is guided by an angel who describes the seven-headed beast to him. John is told, “The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction.” He is further told of these seven heads, “Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for a little while. The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.”

The beast that John saw was free to do as he wished and he did so with kingdoms of men. With the sacrifice of his life and the offering of his grace, Jesus succeeded in cutting off the devil’s destruction. It was at this time that Jesus’ word subdued, chained and locked the Destroyer into the Abyss and there he sat for a thousand years (Rev 20).

Though he was locked up, his spirit still milled about as Rome fell and Muhammad’s Islam slithered into place. Satan’s period of containment ended sometime after the first millennium (1,000 A.D.). It was then that the world experienced the Crusades, the Dark Ages, and the rise of Islam.

At the time that John saw this vision, it was the first century A.D. Five of the seven kingdoms had already been conquered. Rome, the sixth, was the era in which Jesus arrived and in which John and the apostles wrote.

“The other” kingdom that the angel referred to was the kingdom that would eventually replace Rome – Islam. The invention of Islam came nearly six centuries after Jesus was crucified. And Islam remained for more than a “little while.” From Muhammad’s first delusional ranting in 610 A.D. until the fall of the Ottoman Empire in November of 1922, the rule and authority of Islam grew and spanned over 1,300 years – nearly twice as long as the existence of the Roman Empire.

The beast who once was, and in the first century A.D. was not, is the eighth face of the devil. He was the seventh, the wounded head of Islam, which is now healed. According to the word of God, the nation of Islam, its people and their foreign god Allah are all going to suffer a second death and perish. Hell is not a kingdom and it has no ruler. Satan, like those he’s deceived, doesn’t rule in hell – he burns and perishes in it.

With him will be most of the men and women of the ten territories that we now recognize as the Nation of Islam. They are the ten kings who had no authority in John’s day but who – after 1,400 years of division – now wreak havoc upon the world with their authoritative laws as changed by Muhammad. The 613 laws of God, considered to be unattainable, are still law. Jesus appeared and explained to men that it was impossible for any man to achieve perfection and that all men were flawed. He further drew a line in the sand and asked that the man of perfection step forward and inflict his judgment upon another. Of course, there was no such man and there is none among us who can decide the life or death of another based on morality. To do so leads to utter chaos. That judgment is God’s and God’s alone. If it were not for Jesus’ sacrifice and offering on the cross, there would be none other than the seven thousand previously reserved by God to reign with Christ.

Six hundred years after Jesus gifted us with his grace, a new prophet appeared. He wiped away the grace offered by Jesus’ sacrifice and offering with his own set of laws (Da 7:25). Muhammad’s laws, known as sharia, call for the individual worshiper to be judge and jury. They are to base their decision upon his own understanding of the life and times of Muhammad’s barbaric rule. For Islam, morality is based upon the justified acts of the perfect model, the prophet Muhammad. From this child molesting bigamist, who gathered most of his wives as booty from murdered fathers and husbands, was derived the guidelines of morality for the world’s largest religion. Does that shed any light upon the mindset of those who murder their wives and children in the name of honor? Does anyone know that raped Muslim women will likely be stoned to death because they cannot round up the four male witnesses to witness her assault? And does anyone know that the reason for this law is because Muhammad’s child-bride A’isha disappeared from camp for a liaison with someone nearer her own age? Through a revelation from Allah, Muhammad was told she was innocent and any further accusations of immorality would result in death unless the woman could have at least four men account for her whereabouts? Strapped by this type of oppression, how can a Muslim woman even walk around the block without four of her male family members accompanying her? This is the morality and justice that drives Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the ruling Party in Iran push the world to the edge of the Abyss. These are Islam’s rulers.

Islam’s rulers, those who dwell in the many countries that now dominate and dwell within the ten territories of Noah’s age are now inside their hour of authority as has been given them by the beast (reference Rev 17:12). All the nations within the ten territories of Islam (nation of Islam), including their allies China and Russia, have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast – who we know to be Allah, Muhammad and the final worldly kingdom – Islam (Rev 17:13).

They will make war against Jesus, but he will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings – and with him will be his faithful Christians and God’s chosen Israelites. (Refer to Rev 17:14)

Satan, the king of earthly kingdoms, hates the heart of men (reference Rev 17:16). It is he who draws God’s fire and causes it to fall upon men and the earth. For God has put it into the hearts of his deniers to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the eight nations their power to rule, until God’s words are fulfilled. (Reference Rev 17:17)

The woman that John saw upon the beast is this generation of man…

Now, back to where we diverted from, Revelation 13:3.

“…The whole world was astonished and followed the beast.” – Remember, as of today, the beast now bears the final face of the devil. The body of the beast is today’s Islam. They are enslaved by the Destroyer (Allah) and the words of his dead prophet. With the Arab Spring now headed into its second year, it’s obvious that the Islamic Brotherhood and the even more aggressive right wing Islamists are taking over the revolution. All the men around Israel are following the beast – willingly or not.

“Men worshipped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast…” – Current day followers of Islam worship the dragon’s eighth face, Allah, because he had given his authority over to Islam. Satan has the authority to give it to whoever he wants. Remember what he said and how he tempted Jesus?

“…and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?” – Men also worshipped Islam as represented by the little scroll. And just like today’s administration, they ask, “Who can go to war with the entire nation of Islam and its allies?”

According to one of its very own sons, Barack Hussein Obama, the Commander in Chief has proclaimed, “…the United States is not and will never be at war with the nation of Islam.” He went on to express his “deep appreciation for the Islamic faith.” These are the words and leadership of Barack Obama as he visited Turkey on April 6, 2009.

Three years later, on Thursday, Feb 2nd, the Obama administration’s Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, announced to Persia and the world that our ally, Israel, will likely strike Iran in April or May of this year. So much for D-day like secrecy! With friends like Obama, who the hell needs enemies?

“The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies…” – Now it gets creepy! The final face of Satan, Islam, was given a mouth over 1,400 years ago. It was that very mouth which changed the laws of God to sharia law and which changed the set times, based upon Jesus, to that of his own flight from Mecca to Medina. For those who don’t know it and according to the Islamic calendar, today (2/4/2012) is the 12th day of the 3rd month (Rabi Al-Awwal) of the year 1443 A.H. (refer to Da 7:25)

He changed the translated Arabic word for God of Allah, to the proper name of his foreign god. He made himself out to be higher than any god or prophet before him.

He lied about the God of heaven and told horrible untruths about those in heaven. This man went so far as to declare all of the prophets before him to be mistaken.

 

“The Bible speaks of many of the prophets of God as committing the most heinous sins; it speaks of Abraham as telling lies and casting away Hagar and her son; it speaks of Lot as committing incest with his own daughters; it speaks of Aaron as making a calf for worship and leading the Israelites to its worship; it speaks of David as committing adultery with Uriah’s wife; it speaks of Solomon as worshipping idols; but the Holy Qur’an accepts none of these statements, definitely rejects most of them and clears these prophets of the false charges against them. The unlearned (illiterate) Prophet of Arabia swept away the errors which were a blot on the face of prophethood.”

Qur’an, Maulana Muhammad Ali, I-38

“…and to exercise his authority for forty-two months.” – According to the Scripture describing the temptation of Jesus by Satan, the devil claimed he could give his authority to anyone he pleased. And according to this verse, the mouth given to Islam exercised his authority for forty-two months. Forty-two months is 1,260 days. In the book of Daniel, all reference to ‘days’ is measured out into ‘days of years,’ the Biblical year being 360 days long. In other words, 1,260 days is understood to be [1,260 x 360 / 365 = 1,243] 1,243 Gregorian calendar years.

If the reign of Muhammad was thought to be dead and ended by the defeat of the Ottoman’s in 1922, what happened to recognize his authority 1,243 years earlier?

 

“Architectural historian K. A. C. Creswell, referring to a testimony by Arculf, a Gallic monk, during his pilgrimage to Palestine in 679–82, notes the possibility that the second caliph of the Rashidun Caliphate, Umar ibn al-Khattab, erected a primitive quadrangular building [a mosque] for a capacity of 3,000 worshipers somewhere on the Haram ash-Sharif. Elad, Amikam. (1995). Medieval Jerusalem and Islamic Worship Holy Places, Ceremonies, Pilgrimage BRILL, pp.29–43

 

Haram ash-Sharif is the Temple Mount – it’s God’s ground. In or around 679 A.D., Umar, the second of four patriarchs of Islam, built a mosque upon God’s holy ground – ground that now honors Satan. It was the first of multiple structures that now include the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock. These are the ‘royal tents – pitched between the seas (kingdoms of men and gods) at the beautiful holy mountain’ as prophesied in Daniel 11:45.

Forty-two months are also the actual number of months between Allah’s revelations to Muhammad which gave him permission to fight (wage jihad) in August of 623 and Allah’s rules of modesty in March of 627 in which he could no longer act as he wished; nor could any other Muslim – ever again. These are the dates between which he was authorized by Allah to murder anyone opposed to his religion and to murder anyone who violated its laws of ‘morality.’

Whether it meant years of his kingdom or months in his life, God explains the forty-two months of authority exercised by the mouth of Islam.

“He opened his mouth to blasphemy God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven.” – There are 80,000 words that make up the signs or surahs within the Qur’an and supporting them are the countless number of hadiths or third person recollections of his sayings – all of them blasphemy the God of heaven. They are lies about who and what God is. Muhammad is the mouth that gives false witness as to have personally met and garnered the favor of Adam, John the Baptist, Jesus, Joseph, Aaron, Moses, and Abraham. There is another he claimed to have met within the middle of the ‘seven’ heavens; his name was Idris – a prophet of Islam. (Qur’an 19:56, 21:85)

“He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them.” – Called out by name within the Qur’an are the Christians and the Jews – enemies of Islam. Over the past 1,400 years, how many hundreds of millions or even billions of Biblical believers have been slaughtered in the name of Allah or by dunkoffs who believe they serve God in the slaughter of men?

“And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.” – He has killed and beheaded. He has looted and robbed. He has raped and enslaved. His influence has crept over every land from North Africa to Indonesia and beyond. His slaves (abdullahs) have gone so far as to reach around the world as a bird of prey from the east (Isa 46:11) and like lightning from the east as seen in the west (Mt 24:27).

 

“Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.” – Mt24:28

 

There they nest – in the very footprint of the buildings they brought down.

“All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast – all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.” – All men; whether they worship Allah, Buddha, themselves or a blade of grass will worship the body of evil that resides within their hearts. But the devil can take nothing from those who have accepted the gift of God – the sacrifice and offering of Jesus – and the remnant of those chosen by God, those men who have not bowed to the serpent.

“He who has an ear, let him hear. If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity he will go. If anyone is to be killed by the sword, with the sword he will be killed. This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of the saints.” – To summarize this: “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” – Matthew 10:28

 

The False Prophet

 

“Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth.” – The previous beast came from out of the Abyss, thrown from heaven to the earth, and out of history’s seven kingdoms and their seas of men. This one appears in the natural way, he was given birth here. He was born after his biological father died. He was soon abandoned by his mother and, by his uncle, was raised a merchant.

Can you name another foreign rebel, a man of authority whose mother and father(s) abandoned him?

“He had two horns like a lamb…” – Jesus is both man and God. Muhammad was both man and devil. Jesus has two swords (Lk 22:38) in the form of the greatest of all commandments (Mt 22:37-40). Muhammad had two swords in the form of jihad. Jesus is lifted by his Father in heaven and the Spirit of God. Muhammad was directed by Satan and advanced by his beast. Jesus was preceded by John the Baptist. Muhammad shared a cave with the second of two – Abu Bakr.

“…but he spoke like a dragon.” – Muhammad mirrored Jesus in every way. But like a mirror, his reflection was opposing. Instead of speaking the truth about God, Muhammad spoke the lies fed to him by the devil he served.

“He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf…” – Muhammad utilized the power given to him to make others bow to the seventh face of the devil. Unlike Jesus, Muhammad accepted the devil’s offer. A lot of good it did him!

“…and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast whose fatal wound had been healed.” – This is important! Muhammad madehe coerced – the inhabitants around Israel – whose ancestors lay in the dust beneath their feet – to worship Satan’s Islam, whose fatal wound of WWI has been healed.

It’s Satan’s Islam now. Muhammad is long since dead – killed by the power of God; not by human power (Da 8:25). But it was Muhammad, his acts, words and immoralities that were collected and arranged into an image that causes all Muslims worship Allah.

“And he performed great and miraculous signs…” – He is said to have performed great and miraculous signs, including but not limited to; splitting the moon, food multiplication, water multiplication, supplication for rain, lights to guide companions, crying of the stem of the date-palm tree, the expulsion of a liar’s corpse by the earth, the speech of the wolf and the prophet’s night journey to Jerusalem which included his ascent to the seven heavens.

Of course, the grandest miracle of the prophet Muhammad is the Qur’an and its many surahs (signs).

 

“For the Qur’an is a miracle of the Holy Prophet and the source of all knowledge relating to law and all religious injunctions…” Mulla Muhsin as quoted in the Qur’an, Introduction, p. I-85

Did you catch that part about the Qur’an being not only a miracle of Muhammad but also the source of all knowledge relating to law and religion? Compare that to the seemingly misplaced verse in Daniel 12:4: “Many will go here (the Bible) and there (the Qur’an) to increase knowledge.

To which do you go?

“…even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men.” – This is the verse that takes a moment to understand. It’s not the false prophet that controls and calls the fire from heaven to earth. It is his fault – he’s the cause of the fire – to fall upon men. Anyone who is waiting for a horned man to appear and draw fire from the sky has missed God’s boat… or his ark.

For a more definitive explanation, look at 2 Kings 1. It was the captain and his fifty men who repeatedly approached Elisha that caused fire to fall from heaven and consumed them. The devil causes the fire to fall but it is from God’s will that it is delivered.

“Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth.” – Because of the surahs (signs) he was given, which have been recorded in his claimed miracle – the Qur’an, Muhammad harnessed the power and authority of the dragon, seventh & eighth faces of the beast, to deceive and delude (reference 2 Thessalonians 2) the inhabitants of the earth – men.

His deceit and delusions are not limited to the Muslim world. Take a poll. Ask the simple question of friends, neighbors and even church pastors: “Who is Allah?” Odds are – that nineteen in twenty will claim Allah is God.

“He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.” – Muhammad ordered them – Abu Bakr, Abu Darda, Mu’adh ibn Jabal, Zaid ibn Thabit, Abu Sa’id, and the forty-two un-named scribes to set up an image of him in honor of Allah.

The Qur’an is the image of Satan just as the Bible is the image of God. God’s signet ring is Jesus. Satan’s signet ring is Muhammad. Because he was illiterate, Muhammad literally had a silver signet ring on which was inscribed “Muhammad Rasul Allah” – Muhammad Messenger Allah. He would use this ring to seal the letters he dictated to his scribes.

“He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.” – Just as Christians know the Bible to be the living and breathing word of the Father in heaven and his Son; Muslims believe the Qur’an to be the living and breathing word of Allah and his prophet. Muhammad was given the power and authority of the devil and to call for the creation of the image of Allah so that it would speak to his followers and direct them to kill anyone and everyone who refused to worship Allah as God and/or disrespect Muhammad as Allah’s messenger.

With today’s headlines, is there really anyone out there who would or could reasonably dispute this?

“He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.” – Muhammad forced, coerced, beheaded, slashed, raped, pillaged, and murdered his way to power. Those who encountered him had two choices; bow down (prostrate) as he does in honor of Allah (Mt 4:9, Lk 4:7) or die.

The mark is received by the act (deeds) of jihad and by the worship (belief) of pressing ones head to the ground by prostrating or bowing before Allah in his honor.

 

“Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him are firm of heart against the disbelievers, compassionate among themselves, Thou seest them bowing down, prostrating themselves, seeking Allah’s grace and pleasure. Their marks are on their faces in consequence of prostration.” Qur’an 48:29

According to the Manual of Hadith, chapter XXII, rule 5., in regard to the rules of buying and selling; “Give a full measure when you measure out and weigh with a faith balance.” The measure in which one uses to buy or sell in Islam is that of faith in Allah. In Islam, if one has no faith in Allah – one has nothing of which to barter.

“This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.” – This no longer calls for wisdom but rather for a single seeing eye. He has a name. It’s similar to that of a child’s puzzle and it has only three pieces, they are;

χ (the Greek symbol for 600)

ξ (the Greek symbol for 60)

ς (the Greek symbol for 6)

Arranged as puzzle pieces, they create the number of his name:

                       

 

It’s Muhammad – Messenger – Allah.

Now, you know who the devil is and who he selected to be his delusional false prophet.

If both Old and New Testaments of the Bible can be so accurate in describing Allah, Islam and the false prophet Muhammad, how could they possibly be considered anything other than the true word of God?

In regard to Jesus being the Son of God, there is no better analysis than that of legendary author C.S. Lewis:

 

“You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronising (sic) nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to… Now it seems to me obvious that He was neither a lunatic nor a fiend: and consequently, however strange or terrifying or unlikely it may seem, I have to accept the view that He was and is God.”
