MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD: First harbinger of the Apocalypse?


Now let's look at some of the striking parallels between Christian and Islamic views of End Times events:

Christian: A figure like Antichrist is described as riding on a white horse (Rev. 6:1-2).
Islam: The Mahdi (see previous days' postings here) is described as riding on a white horse.

Christian: The Antichrist is said to make a peace treaty with Israel for seven years (Daniel 9:27).
Islam: The Mahdi is said to make a peace treaty through a Jew (specifically a Levite) for exactly seven years.

Christian: The antichrist spirit specifically denies the most unique and central doctrines of Christianity—namely the trinity, the incarnation and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the cross.
Islam: Doctrinally and spiritually denies the most unique and central doctrines of Christianity—namely the trinity, the incarnation and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the cross.

Christian: The specific nations pictured in the Bible as being part of the final empire of the Antichrist are all Islamic nations.
Islam: All Muslims are commanded to give their allegiance to the Mahdi as the final Caliph and Imam (leader) of Islam.

Christian: From the Bible and history we learn that the final Antichrist empire will be a revived version of the empire that succeeds the Roman Empire.
Islam: The empire that succeeded the Roman Empire was the Islamic Ottoman Empire.

Christian: When Antichrist emerges, there will already be some form of system in place that will be poised to receive him as a Savior and to give allegiance to him.
Islam: Is already the second largest religion and will at present growth rates become the largest religion within a few decades. Islam is awaiting the coming of the Mahdi with a universal anticipation.

And Mahmoud "Mojo" Ahmadinejad is his self-professed advance man. These are just some of the parallels, in this case excerpted from the very fine work of answering-islam.org. We highly recommend a visit here to access the entire book-length work on-line. They're not the first. Halley's Bible Handbook back in the 1920s saw "Mohammedanism" in the worldwide scourge of locusts pictured in Rev. 9.

Watch Mojo. He may well be the first harbinger of the Apocalypse. With him we can now begin to see the final pieces and how they could fit into place. And just the fact that we can now see the shape of those things to come is in itself a sign—that the end may not be that far off.
