ISIS PREPARES FOR ARMAGEDDON
It is amazing how much more the Muslims and Middle Eastern Christians understand the Book of Revelation than we Christians here in the West. ISIS Caliph Al-Baghdadi calls on all Muslims to join him for the great battle of Armageddon. He just came out of hiding a few days ago. He said, “Islam was never for one day a religion of peace. Islam is the religion war.” He released a 35 minute audio message to his followers. He urged Muslims around the world to travel to Iraq and Syria and join up with the Islamic State. His speech focused on convincing Muslims to join him in preparation for the coming Mahdi and the gathering at Armageddon. The world, in fact, most Christians have no clue why this army will eventually grow to over 200,000,000 and gather at the Mount of Olives just outside the eastern Gate. They still think they can kill Jesus at His Second Coming. They are more serious about the Second Coming of Christ than most folks in our churches here in America. They are just waiting for Iran to get “the bomb” and grow their army before they make their move.
Jesus Christ showed the Apostle John this great event in Revelation 19:19. John says, “And I saw the beast, the kinds of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him [Jesus] who sat on the horse and against His army [that is us]. (Revelation 19:19) Armageddon is not man fighting man. It is man attempting to kill Jesus at His return. How stupid can a person get!
Close to the end of the tribulation the antichrist begins to lose control of Israel. The military leaders of the world, and the 200,000,000 soldiers, who gather at Armageddon, have been deceived into believing that they are there to help the antichrist regain control Israel. But that is not the real reason they are there. They are there to keep Jesus from coming again. They are there to kill Jesus.
The unholy trinity made up of Satan, the antichrist and the false prophet, have deceived the presidents, prime ministers, kings, and military leaders from the far East, and I believe from around the world, to bring to Israel all their missiles and rockets, armed with all kind of warheads of mass destruction.. According to Revelation 19:19, they are there to prevent Jesus from coming again. They are there to make war against Jesus Christ and His followers. When they fire all these armed missiles and rockets with warheads of poison gases toward heaven to prevent the coming of Christ, I can see how the aftermath, and fallout from the atomic, nuclear warheads exploding high in the sky, could affect every nation around the world. The four angels that have been bound at the Euphrates River are released. These four angels represent four winds of invasion that carry the poison gases and nuclear fallout around the entire world. (Revelation 9:14-15) This is when the seventh angel pours out the seventh bowl of the wrath of God. The Bible says it was poured out into the air. What was poured out into the air? I believe it will be the poison gases from the nuclear fallout. One third of the world will die from it. How else could 200,000,000 soldiers stationed at the Euphrates River kill one third of the people in the world. The 200,000,000 soldiers did not invade all the nations of the world. It was the four winds of destruction that was poured out into the air when the seventh bowl of the wrath of God is poured out.
Muslins believe that the rider on the white horse in Revelation Chapter 6, when the first seal is opened, is the Mahdi. The actual word “antichrist” is not mentioned in the Book of Revelation on purpose. He is referred to as “the beast out of the sea.” We know the rider on the white horse is the antichrist because of his description, his mission, and his activity. Even many Muslim theologians believe that the rider on this white horse is the Mahdi. That is strange. Their christ is our antichrist, and our Christ is their antichrist. The Muslims don’t call him their christ. Some do, but most don’t. According to Islam theology, the Mahdi is coming to govern the world with a political head and a religious head. Only Islam has a political head and a religious head. The world will be pressured into living by the Sharia Law and the Islam constitution. In 1 John 2:18, concerning the antichrist, the Apostle John dogmatically says, “The Antichrist is coming.” (1 John 2:18) He comes when the first seal is opened and will be allowed to hang around and do his thing for seven years. Praise God, he will meet his doom at Armageddon.
In their book, Al Mahdi and the End of Time, Muhammad Ibn ‘Izzat and Muhammad ‘Arif, two well-known Egyptian authors, identify the Mahdi from the Book of Revelation, quoting Hadith transmitter Ka’ab al-Ahbar. They say, “I find the Mahdi recorded in the books of the Prophets. For instance, the Book of Revelation says: “And I saw and behold a white horse. He that sat on him went forth conquering and to conquer.” Izzat and ‘Arif then go on to say: “It is clear that this man is the Mahdi who will ride the white horse and judge by the Qur’an with justice, and with whom will be men with marks of prostration (zabiba) on their foreheads.” According to the Shia and Sunni versions of the Islamic eschatology, the Mahdi is the prophesied redeemer of Islam who will stay on the earth seven years before the coming of the Day of Resurrection.
I just got word from my contacts in the Middle East that ISIS captured 70 more Christians and shot them to death by a firing squad. Thirty more were beheaded by sawing their heads off. They want people to suffer as much as possible. This beast is growing larger every day. Don’t let the talking heads on TV fool you. This beast is becoming more and more like the body of a leopard, with paws like a bear and teeth like a lion.
That is why Jesus Christ mandated that the Book of Revelation be preached and taught in the churches. We Christians need to be informed. If not, we will live in constant fear with all kinds of questions, depression, and worry about the future. The Book of Revelation will take the fear out of a person’s life and give them peace of mind, hope and assurance of victory. That is one of the things our End Times Revelation Bible Conference does for a church. It gives them peace of mind, hope and assurance everything is going to be alright for those who are in Christ. Our churches need to hear this kind of message. In fact, the Book of Revelation was written for times like we are now living in.
