Jack Kelley: Islam And The End Times
“In 2006 I first began writing on the similarities between Islamic prophecies of al Mahdi and Christian prophecies of the anti-Christ. I noted how both or these end times figures are said to come on the scene during a time of great turmoil on Earth, both come claiming a desire to restore peace, both have a seven year reign, both head a one world religion and one world government, both claim supernatural origins, and in both cases their reign is prophesied to end in a battle between good and evil that brings Earth’s final judgment. It almost sounds as if they’re the same person.
Back then almost all students of prophecy were still convinced that the anti-Christ had to be of Western European origin, aligned somehow with the Roman Catholic Church. But since then I’ve become aware of more and more people who are taking a second look at this traditional view, and are considering the possibility of a world leader coming from the Eastern leg of the Roman Empire, largely Islamic today.”
Just a terrific article from Jack Kelly at Gracethrufaith.com. If you are a student of Bible Prophecy then I highly recommend his site and his books.
