We are going to study what the Bible says about Islam. You are going to become scholars of Bible prophecy by the end of this class.
I have some questions to ask you. Are you ready? I am going to debate with you.
Everybody is waiting here for Jesus Christ to return? Raise your hands.
Some of you are not!? What's going on here? Is this a Bible study or what?
Let me ask you this question: What do you think Jesus will do when He comes again to earth at the rapture? Take us where?
— To heaven.
Where did you read that he will take us to heaven? Where does the Bible say that He will take you to heaven? What does it say? Give me the word. Come on. Raise your hands.
— In the clouds.
Yes, it doesn't say that we will go to heaven yet. You will be meeting Him in the clouds and forever you shall be with the LORD. From that moment on, we are going to be with him forever. But where?
We could be first doing some business. There is some unfinished business that the Christians must do which most Christians don't pay attention to.
Open your Bibles with me to Joel chapter 2.
Joel 2:1: "For the day of the LORD is coming, for it is at hand."
Can there be any doubt what this is talking about? There is a day when the LORD is going to come. And look at verse two:
Joel 2:2: "A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. A PEOPLE COME, GREAT AND STRONG..."
What is "a people"? That's us. That's right. "A people" is human beings. There is no need for interpreting that.
Joel 2:3: "A fire devours before them"
And it keeps talking about a battle that these people will be in:
Joel 2:7 "They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; every one marches in his own column. THOUGH THEY LUNGE BETWEEN THE WEAPONS, THEY ARE NOT CUT DOWN."
What does that mean?
They do not die.
When is there a people--human being--that when they fight in a battle, and they are shot or stabbed with a sword, they do not die? There is only one such incident that will ever happen. Nothing like it will ever happen again. And that is when you have your glorified bodies.
Do you doubt? Say yes. OK. If you doubt, let's continue reading:
Joel 2:10: "The earth quakes before them, the heavens tremble; the sun and moon grow dark, and the stars diminish their brightness."
Wow. That is definitely the day of the LORD, the day of great tribulation.
Joel 2:11: "The LORD gives voice before His army..."
Who is His army? They are the same people whose bodies are not cut down when they fight in the battle. Those are the people of God's army.
"for His camp is very great; for strong is the One who executes His word."
Who is going to execute His word? We are!
"For the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; who can endure it?"
Wow. Is that amazing or what? Don't believe me? Say no, I don't believe you yet. I don't believe that that's the day when we will meet the LORD in the sky.
Ok. Let's continue:
Joel 2:16: "Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and nursing babes; LET THE BRIDEGROOM GO OUT FROM HIS CHAMBER..."
Who is the bridegroom? Who is the bride? ...
"and the bride from her dressing room."
Who is the bride?
We are. Is that not our meeting with Him in the air? All right.
This is a battle between the Islamic world coming against Israel and us, the Christian Zionists, the Christians who love Israel.
The world mocks at us because we love the Jews, because we believe that they are God's chosen people.
I was a terrorist. I nearly leeched an Israeli soldier. In all my life, I wanted to destroy Israel. Now, I became a staunch Zionist. All I can tell you is, I was blind, now I can see. How did this happen?
It happened because I dialed the right number.
How do we dial the right number? Did you know that God has a number? Try it if you don't believe me.
If you address Him as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, you've dialed the right number. So, guess what happens! Somebody on the other side picks up! It doesn't fail! Try it! It doesn't fail!
I began to read the Word of God, for the very first time, and I fell in love with it so much that my friends said I was going to get crazy. I was reading it all the time everywhere... I said, "You know what? If that is craziness, may God plague me with it, and may I never recover!"
If I am crazy, then what can you tell me about the media? What can you tell me about the United Nations? What can you tell me about the Nobel Peace Prize which was given to Yasser Arafat, the world's leading terrorist?
He gets a Noble Peace Prize for being a terrorist, and I, for believing the Word of God, am called a racist. Because critiquing Islam is called racism. That is amazing.
I hated Jews. I wanted to kill them. I hated Americans. I prayed for their destruction. When I was doing these things, I was called a freedom fighter. Now, that I hate no muslim, and I hate no Jew, and I hate no Christian, and I hate no Buddhist, and I hate no atheist, and I hate no one, now I am being called a racist. Go figure.
I walk into the news media in England, called BBC. And they have three scholars there ready to crush this guy, Walid Shoebat, with his Bible and accent who is not a scholar, by the way. And I walked in there and explained to them that the problem with terrorism and Islamic fundamentalism has nothing to do with occupation of land. It's got nothing to do with the occupation of Iraq. It's got nothing to do with poverty. It's got something to with the rise of Islamic fundamentalism that wants to kill the Christians and behead them.
And the gentleman scholar wanted to debate me. He said, "But Mr. Shoebat, it always takes two to tango." I said, "Can you tell me what did the Jews do to tango in Nazi Germany?" He didn't know what to say, and his other colleague helped him, "But Mr. Shoebat, the problem with today's world is fundamentalism." I said, "I see where you are going with this. You are saying that we, Christians fundamentalists, are also part of the problem." I said, "You know what? I have a confession to make. My confession is this: 'We, Christian fundamentalists, confess that we give the world a headache, but the muslim fundamentalists will whack your whole head off your shoulder!'" So, he says to me, "Mr. Shoebat, thank you for stopping at the BBC." I learned that in English terms, that means "Get out!" The damage has been done already. It's on the air live.
At a university conference where I was lecturing one professor said, "The problem is poverty. There is poverty in the world. That's what creates muslim fundamentalists and terrorists." And I said, "Is there someone from India in the crowd?" Well, there is somebody from India back there. Oh, there is another person from India over there.
"I am from India!" Oh, you are from India? Great! I have a question to ask you. Do you have poverty in India? "Sir, we have lots of poverty in India, lots of poverty." Ok. Tell me something. Do you guys blow yourselves up as a result of poverty? He pondered and thought about the question and said, "No sir, we don't blow up ourselves as a result of poverty, but they come from Pakistan and blow us up."
So, I said to the professor, there is your answer from your students. Are you going to argue with him?
Why are these guys blowing themselves up and these guys are not blowing themselves up? Why are these guys dying and want to kill Christians and Jews and everybody else and these are not?
What makes you guys like this?
It has nothing to do with them. It's got nothing to do with India having a piece of land from Pakistan. It has nothing to do with refugees, because both India and Pakistan have refugees. They are not fighting over the refugee problem. The problem is a spiritual problem.
They want to control the whole world by Islam. Islamic fundamentalism, radical Islam wants to destroy Israel.
If you don't believe me that the war is going to be over Jerusalem, that you are going to be fighting in that battle on the day when you meet the LORD in the air, and it's over Israel, just go to verse 17. Look what it says:
Joel 2:17: "Let the priests, who minister to the LORD, weep between the porch
and the altar; let them say, 'Spare Your people, O LORD, and do not give Your
heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them...'"
Joel 2:18 "Then the LORD will be zealous for His land, and pity His people."
Joel 2:18 "Then the LORD will be zealous for His land, and pity His people."
Can you tell me how the Lord will be zealous for His land, and how is He going to pity His people?
They will tell you as you go out there that it is not a political issue. Don't talk politics.
Oh, abortion is a political issue anyway. It is a political issue. The cross is a political issue. It's a controversy. Everything is a controversy. The Blood is controversy. Israel is a controversy. The Lamb is a controversy.
If you think, you are going to go to heaven without being controversial, then guess again!
Joel 2:32: "And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name
of the LORD shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there
shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, among the remnant whom the LORD calls.
Joel 3:2: "I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the
Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on
account of My people, My heritage ISRAEL, whom they have scattered among
the nations; they have also divided up My land."
Joel 3:2: "I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage ISRAEL, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land."
How important is the division of the land of Israel, the creating of a Palestinian state, and giving the land to Israel's worst enemy? You know how much God is angered?
I used to be part of that crowd. There is a fork ahead of every Christian. And that's the issue over Jerusalem.
Zechariah 12:2: I will make Jerusalem a trembling cup to all surrounding nations. The houses will be rifled and the women ravished.
There will be a raid against Jerusalem by the muslims. They will attack Jerusalem and take half the city into captivity. But listen to the rest of the story:
Even the feeble amongst Judah will be like King David.
They will fight valiantly after they see their atrocity. And they will be victorious, because we will be with them there with the Messiah fighting over Jerusalem.
That fork ahead of you is either Jerusalem for the muslims, or Jerusalem for Israel. If you choose Jerusalem belongs to Islam, forget it. I don't want to tell you the consequences...
If you want to believe in Jesus, then you must also believe in what Jesus said. If you want to believe in Jesus, then you must also believe in what Jesus ordered. If you want to say that you are a believer in the Word of God, then you must also believe what God promised and said. And if you say that you are a Christian and you hate Israel, then you are not listening to Jesus; you are not listening to the Word of God. Then what kind of Christian are you? Are you truly a Christian?
Don't have this debate in the end times. Don't have this debate when the Messiah comes, because you'll lose that debate then!
If you have an issue over Israel and the land of Israel and supporting Israel as a Christian, you need to debate these issues now with yourself. Don't do it when it's too late. Do it like I did it. I debated it with God, and I wrestled with God. And you know who won. GOD! And thank God that God won NOW instead of Him winning later!
Let me ask you a question. Do you want to graduate a scholar's Bible prophecy?
I will give you two words that you have to know, two allegorical words: The first word is mountain. The second word is waters.
Why am I asking you about these two words? Because if you unlock these two words, you unlock all revelation, you unlock all Jeremiah, you unlock everything.
Let me ask you this question:
What is a mountain in the Bible?
— A government
Anybody else? Yes?
— A problem.
Where was the lady that said government? Stand up. Give her a hand. She is right. It's a kingdom. It's a government.
Now, I saw the stone that was cut without hands in the book of Daniel (2:34). And it smote the image--the image of Daniel, the image of gold, silver. You know what I am talking about?
And the stone grew and became a great mountain. Who is this stone?
And when does he become a mountain? How does Jesus become a mountain?
HIS KINGDOM! There you have it.
Ok. Now, let's unlock Revelation together knowing this.
Waters is, by the way, or rivers or oceans--anything like that--is the allegory for nations, different multitudes, tribes, and tongues. John was told by the angel, "the waters that you see are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues." (Revelation 17:15) He told him that. See?
I did not make the word mountain to mean kingdom. The Bible did, because in every single use in the Bible it is used as a kingdom. So, in understanding and unlocking prophecy, you must allow the Bible to to interpret the Bible.
Rule #1. Let the Bible interpret the Bible.
Rule #2. Do not study allegory without the literals in the Bible.
Most Christians go and read the book of Revelation on its own. It's all allegory. What you need to do is read the whole Old Testament, the prophets to see what actually they are saying to give you the name of the countries of literally what happens in the end. And then you take it and you apply it to the allegory in Revelation and see how it fits, not vice versa.
Now, go to Revelation chapter 17.
Rev 17:3: "So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness..."
This is a place which is a desert. It talks about a woman riding a beast, and it says on her forehead written MYSTERY BABYLON.
Rev 17:5: "And on her forehead a name was written."
The third word you need to know is that a NAME is not a name. A name in allegory is not a name. A name in allegory is a title, a description, a declaration of some sort.
"MYSTERY BABYLON, THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
Is that a name? No.
On His thigh written a name: "KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS." Is that a name? No!
So, you see in the book of Revelation, it tells you about the unbelievers, the ones who do not have the seal of Christ will have on their forehead a name. It is not a name. It is a title, a description, a title that describes a name.
His name is WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE. Those are not names. Those are titles, descriptions...
His name shall be called EMMANUEL which means GOD WITH US. He is not Mexican that His name is Emmanuel. He is Jewish; His name is Jeshua.
So, on the forehead is a name, a title, a declaration of the faith. On the right arms they will put the words karagma or mark which means mark or badge of servitude. The badge that proves your servitude toward your God. In this case in Islam it would be Allah.
It is a declaration of faith that will be written on their foreheads.
What does La ilaha ill-Allahu, Mohammed-ur rasul-ullah mean? No, I am not speaking in tongues. That's a declaration of faith in Islam. I declared that there is no God but Allah, and Mohammed was the one sent by Allah to all mankind.
Was Mohammed sent by God? Who was the one sent by God?
Is that not blasphemous to say that Allah is God?
Ninety-nine names of Allah... Some of the names of Allah in the Koran is the Destroyer. "Al-Mumeet," the One Who Gives Death, The One Who Causes Death. "Al-Mutakabbir," the Most Proud One.
Who is the most proud one? Who is the one that gives death? ...
That's what we learned in Islam.
This woman is in a desert, in the wilderness, nothingness. And then he tells him that the woman is a city, a geographical region in the desert. And she has a cup of wine, of the filthiness of her fornication. She makes all the kings of the world drink of it, and they will commit harlotry with this religious entity that comes out of the desert. And the kings of the earth will be drunk. And the world waxes rich for the abundance of her delicacies.
What is the wine that is offered from the desert, that is used as a Babylonian religion to make a name for themselves? And the kings of the earth are all committing religious harlotry with this religion saying Islam is a peaceful religion. And the Bible tells us clearly that by peace he will deceive many. And you don't want to believe me.
But the anti-Christ himself does not honor the God of his fathers, but instead, he will honor a god of war, a god of fortresses. Who is honoring a god of war these days? What is jihad after all? Struggle within. That's what they say, "Jihad means struggle within." Sure, it means struggle within, but so does Mein Kampf. Have you heard of Mein Kampf? - My Struggle, Hitler.
My grandfather, Haj-Ameen Al-Husseni, was the best friend Adolf Hitler. He was conspiring the final solution to destroy all the Jews. He was a regular guest in our home. And from my mother's side, an American, her grandfather was the best friend of Winston Churchill. So, I had a Islamic fundamentalist on one side and pro-Israeli on the other. Pro-West, Winston Churchill clearly said regarding Nazi Germany in the Eunich Treaty, the problem with Nazi Germany is not "giving them land." You can give land to Nazi Germany, and they will not stop. "We have been given a choice between shame and between war," this is what Churchill said. "Shame that is giving him a land, and war--taking him out now and getting rid of Nazism. We have chosen shame and will end up in war." Everybody hated Churchill for saying this. No one today can argue that he wasn't right.
Can one man be right and the whole world be wrong? Yes! Churchill was right, and the whole world was wrong. Noah was right, and the whole world drowned. Noah lost every single debate... Finally, Noah won the debate and everybody died... One person can be right, and the whole world can be wrong. In fact, in the parliament, Nancy Astor hated him. She was a liberal. She said, "Churchill, I hate you! I hate you so much that if I was your wife I would put poison in your tea." And he looked at her and said, "Maam, if I was your husband, I would be glad to drink it."
Did you know that two divisions of Nazi war machines were muslim fundamentalists?
Did you know that the yellow patch, the star that was put on the Jews' shoulder in Nazi Germany did not come from Nazi Germany. Do you know where it came from?
Omar Ibn Al-Khattab was the second apostle of Mohammed. He was promised to go to heaven to paradise with the prophet Mohammed. Omar Ibn Al-Khattab had what is called the Omar Declaration which says that Jew must wear a yellow patch on their right shoulder. Same thing as in Nazi Germany. Jews must never enter into a muslim bathhouse. Jews cannot enter into restaurants in Nazi Germany. Jews must live in ghettos. Did you know that Jews live in ghettos in the muslim world? ...sometimes because of their contributions to society they didn't want to kill them. So, they incorporated them. And some other times they persecuted the Jewish people all throughout the muslim world. Jews must pay double the taxation in Nazi Germany and in Islam. Jews must pay what is called a "jizzia" which is an Islam taxation for the non-muslims. According to the Koran, "They shall pay a jizzia. By an upper hand may they be subjugated and humiliated."
Everything here in the Bible that is the antithesis of the Messiah was our Messiah. Let me give you an example:
Hudna is the prophet of a peace treaty of muslim governments with non-muslim governments. Treaties in Islam must never be honored and must be broken. You cannot have a peace treaty with a non-muslim. It's against Islam. But you are allowed to have a peace treaty as long as you break it.
You don't believe me?
Look up the Hudibiyya Treaty. Mohammed had a treaty with the Quraish. He broke it. When they asked him why did you break the treaty, he said, "There is no treaty with the enemy of Islam." No treaty with the enemy of Islam. They break the treaty.
How do we recognize the Mahdi or the Muslim Messiah when he comes?
He will establish a 7-year peace treaty. He will declare war with Israel. In accordance with the Hadith, prophet Mohammed said, "The day of judgment shall not come to pass until the tribes of Islam defeat the tribes of Israel. In Jerusalem and the surrounding nations. And then the trees will cry out, and the stones will cry out: There is a Jew hiding behind me! Come O muslim, come muslim of Allah, come and kill him! Cut his head off!"
And I saw the martyrs that were beheaded. - That's in the Bible!
The ones who will come to kill you will think that they do God a service. What's happening? Turn on your television. What do you see muslim fundamentalists doing? They are walking around in demonstrations with a banner right on their forehead. And you're still waiting for a computer chip.
You can wait for the computer chip all you want. You can carry your microscope looking for a computer chip, but it isn't happening. It's not a computer chip. It's an open declaration of faith--that if you refuse to accept it, you will be beheaded. That's what Islam exactly teaches. In fact, Mohammed the prophet of Islam said, "Whoever changes his faith KILL HIM!"
What's going to happen if I get caught by a muslim?
In an euphoric fashion the Arabs cry "Allah Akbar!" which means "Allah is greater." Allah is greater than who?
...than the God of the Jews and the Christians. Blasphemy again. They act like they won the lottery when they catch these people and kill them. When they decapitate Christians right on the television, right on the internet.
You think that the book of Revelation was joking around? You think I believed in the Bible because I was just joking around? ...
Do you think, Christ when He promised that if you believe in Him, you will be persecuted, He was kidding around? ...
Rev 17:9: "Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits."
Excuse me. Seven mountains? Is that the Vatican? There are seven hills which surround the Vatican, yes. But Mecca has seven hills too. Istanbul in Turkey has seven hills. San Francisco has seven hills. Which one is it?
We need to look at the literals to interpret the allegories. Rome is mentioned literally 15 times in the Bible. Not once God destroys Rome. Why? Did God forget to destroy Rome literally? He mentions Spain (Iberia) twice. No destruction of Spain in the Bible, yet it's mentioned literally twice. YET EVERY SINGLE COUNTRY MENTIONED LITERALLY IN THE BIBLE IN DESTRUCTION IN THE ENDS OF DAYS--EVERY SINGLE ONE THAT IS MENTIONED LITERALLY IS MUSLIM!
The burden against Arabia, against Kedaar. Where is Kedaar? Arabia. Saudi Arabia. Didan, Dumma, the burden against Assyria, the burden against all these countries--Meseh Tubal, in Asia Minor. All the Bible scholars refer to Meseh Tubal as in Asia Minor. Magog in Asia Minor. Every single Bible map agrees with me. Every single historian agrees with me. Do I not believe the historians? All the contemporaries of Ezekiel point to these regions as the Southern parts of Russia and Turkey.
What happened in Southern Russia? Gomer - that whole region - divorced itself from communist Russia. Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan - they are all being educated from Saudi Arabia, the desert. All of them go to Saudi Arabia to get the Islamic education. Saudi Arabia is the woman, the Islamic Shariaic system that drives the whole mechanism of these governments that surround Israel.
There isn't a single country mentioned literally in the Bible that God destroys in the end that is not muslim.
What happens to all the prophecy books that you bought? What happens to Tim Lahaye books? I am not saying those are bad books. Don't get me wrong. They are good books. But I think, we need to adjust a little bit.
Is it a revival of the Roman Empire? Yes. Turkey is the eastern part of the Roman Empire. So how come you revive a Roman Empire while forgetting the eastern parts of the Roman Empire? Is it a revival of the Babylonian Empire? Yes. Is it a revival of the Grecian Empire? Yes. It is a revival of all the ancient empires -- the seven heads.
Remember, if you think the heads are mountains, why does it say the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits? There are also seven kings. (Revelation 17:9) How can a mountain be a king? Ah! Where is that lady? Over there, you are a genius. You said it's a government, a kingdom! A kingdom is ruled by what? A king. So, what's a mountain? A kingdom.
John was saying, "Five have fallen." What kingdoms fell before John? The Egyptian, the Syrian, the Babylonian, the Medo-Persian, and the Grecian. Five have fallen. John was right. And one is, the sixth one, which he was sitting in: the Roman.
Ok, but there are seven. "One is and the other has not yet come." The seventh one is the one he is talking about. Now, Rome ceased to exist in the west. It continued to exist in Byzantium. Where was that? Turkey. You can't seem to get away from Turkey. Even Jesus himself said that in Pergamus is the seat of Satan. The seat of AntiChrist is in Pergamus. Where is Pergamus? It's in Turkey.
The seven churches were in Turkey. What happened to them? Who destroyed the church of Smyrna? Who butchered hundreds and decapitated hundreds of thousands of Christians in Smyrna in the 1900s? The Turks, the muslims.
The muslims beheaded millions! "I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded..." (Revelation 20:4) They will continue on this beheading. The Roman Catholic church burned people at the stake, not beheaded them. Who is beheading?
Part of the Roman Empire continued in Byzantium in Turkey for many years. That was the sixth head. Who took over the Byzantium Roman Empire? Who?
Turkey took over from the sixth kingdom. Mohammed II took over Turkey. The septer has to be taken from the other. When he falls, the second one takes the lead. So, Islam, the seventh one took the septer from the Roman Empire. That's the one John is talking about -- the Islamic Empire.
You don't believe me?
Look what it says, "And the beast that was..." It's past. What was before the Roman? The Grecian Empire. He is talking about the Greco-Romano Empire. Is it Roman? Yes. Is it Grecian? Yes. But the Grecian Empire did not encompass Western Europe. So, the EU is not part of the Anti-Christ system. The one that all the books say is the Anti-Christ is not!
Let me tell you something about the scholars. When Greece joined as the tenth nation in the EU, do you know what all the prophecy scholars said? We've got the tenth toe! We've got the ten horns. It was in the seventies. I remember it when I was a muslim, I was monitoring you guys all the time. And then the 11th came, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 joined the EU. We got 25 horns. And the ten toes of Daniel? (Daniel 2:31-43) We've got the western one protruding 24 toes and the eastern one protruding 1 toe...
Revelation 17:11: "And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth." Stop right there. It says there are seven kingdoms, and then it says there are eight kingdoms but in seven. How can eight kingdoms be in seven? Because the seventh one is the SAME; he comes twice! One of his heads was wounded; it had a mortal wound, and the wound was healed. (Revelation 13:3) It's a revival of the seventh head. It comes again. And here it is right in our midst, but you still don't want to believe me.
Some people interpret... This is the problem with interpreting allegory: The allegory becomes literal, and the literal becomes allegory. Wrong! Let the allegory be allegory, and the literal literal.
"One of the heads was wounded." Some say, "Oh, that's the Anti-Christ." Well, wait a minute. Are you saying the Anti-Christ is going to be killed and come back to life? Ok, say yes.
All right, if the Anti-Christ is killed (he is Satan incarnate, dwelling in a human body) and if he comes back to life, then SATAN IS A GIVER OF LIFE! Do you want to argue with me? If you have that interpretation, then you must agree that Satan is a giver of life. We can't agree on that. He is a taker of life! He is a destructor of life. He is a destroyer. Revelation 9:11: "I saw the angel... of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon," which means destruction. He is a destroyer. One of the names of Allah is The Destroyer. So, how was this Satan giving himself life again? It doesn't work.
This is not talking about Satan dying or Anti-Christ being killed. This is talking about an empire that comes back to life. And the world wondered who is like the beast.
How can it come back again? How can that be that the Islamic Empire comes back again? Who crushed the Islamic empire after all? Who crushed the seventh head?
You guys! The Allies. Where do you think the marines came from? From the shores of Tripoli. Where is Tripoli? ... Muslims. They were pirates. They were stopping your industry, and finally you said, "Forget it. We're going to kick some ..." You went down there, and you took care of business.
You think as Americans, that you're going to be ruled by the Anti-Christ. That's what you think, "Ah, forget it. The Anti-Christ is gonna rule us. We're all gonna get this computer chip. And when buying groceries, we're gonna go BLEEP BLEEP." ...and all you have to do is to bend over to buy groceries. It doesn't work!
Do you think, every nation is going to go under the Anti-Christ?
Only the ones that pledge allegiance to that system. Anti-Christ after all, as I said, does not honor the desire of women. Who doesn't honor the desire of women these days, ladies? Turn on the TV... Where do you read, Afghanistan mistreating women... Turkey doesn't want to be accepted in the EU because of the Sharia law. The woman doesn't have a right to speak, drive a car, etc...
Women, what do you want?
Why does Satan hate the woman?
That's right, Genesis 3:15 - THE SEED OF THE WOMAN!
God honored the woman. He chose them for the seed of the Messiah. Satan hates the woman!
Revelation 19:17: "Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, 'Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,"
Wow. You know, that's the same supper... Some people say, it's not the same supper, but it is. In verse 7, "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB HAS COME."
There is the Lamb, his marriage meeting the bride. Remember Joel 2?
. . .
Revelation 19:9: "Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!" Wow. What is the marriage supper of the Lamb? Are we going to have lamb chops? After all, it is a marriage "supper of lamb."
Let me show you what happens in this marriage supper of the Lamb. Verse 17 is very clear, like I said, "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.' And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army." There's a battle here. Nations are coming against Israel. Be ready for a great jihad! We're going to be with the Messiah fighting. He will be sitting on a horse. And there is this Anti-Christ there with his army -- one person leading multitudes, and the King of Kings leading His multitudes, which I hope, everyone of you will be there.
Revelation 19:20: "Then the BEAST was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone."
Now, is the beast one person? Most Christians who read this think that it is one person. It is not!
When was a beast one person? Daniel talks about animals, beasts -- the goat, the leopard. These never were a person. It's a kingdom. The false prophet is a person; he is also the Anti-Christ. Some people say, "Oh, we have a false prophet. That's a different guy." The Anti-Christ is not a different guy. He's the same guy.
The Anti-Christ has many names. Look, Jesus has many names. Jesus was born in Bethlehem. He came out of Nazareth. Came out of Egypt. Which one is true? All of them. These are called connundrums, in which one person fulfills all.
The Anti-Christ is called the Assyrian. Why? Because he rules Assyria. What religion is Assyria today? Muslim. He is called the Prince of Tyre. Where is Tyre? Lebanon. Have you turned the TV on and watched the war of Tyre in Lebanon? ... What's going on? Wake up Americans! Smell the humus!
He is called the Pharaoh of Egypt. Why? Because he'll also rule Egypt. What religion is Egypt? Muslim. He is called the Son of Perdition. He is called the Father of Lies. He is called the false prophet. He is called King of Babylon. He is called all these things. Why? Because he is a muslim; he rules all these countries. Egypt, Kush, Sudan, North Africa, Lybia will follow him in submission, in the book of Daniel.
The beast is a big conglomerate of many countries... Did you know the Bible tells you what nations are the beast? Do you want to know?
Open your Bibles to the book of Ezekiel 27. It talks in Ezekiel about the destruction of a place called Tyre. Tyre anciently was destroyed but there was also a long-term fulfillment. Remember, there is another thing you have to know interpreting prophecy. Parallel fulfillments: there is a short-term, and there is a long-term fulfillment. The short-term regarding ancient Tyre happened. It became a bare rock. But there's also a long-term for a mystery Tyre. Babylon? The same thing. There is a long-term for mystery Babylon in the end.
Now, the destruction of Tyre is clear from this. But then it talks about the people who trade with this Tyre (see verse 10). Those from Persia... Persia today is what? Iran. Lydia is what today? Turkey. And Lybia - North Africa. Algeria, Tunesia, Morocco, Mauritania. What part of the Roman Empire was North Africa? Eastern or Western? ... It's Western, because the Roman Empire was divided a vertical division. What's to the left was Western; what's to the right on the map was Eastern. Those countries were Western.
For those countries to come back again will be a revival of the Roman Empire. It will also be a revival of the Grecian Empire. In Revelation 13:2 it's clear: it says the beast had a body of a leopard, feet of a bear, mouth of a lion. Some interpret this allegorically and say, "Ok. Body of a leopard? He is fast as a leopard. Yeah! Feet of a bear? He stumps like a bear. Yeah! Mouth like a lion? He speaks like a lion! Like a dragon? ..." Excuse me, the Bible is trying to give you a very precise message.
If the Anti-Christ rules the whole world, the whole globe, why is the Bible giving us these different geographical configurations of the beast? He rules the whole world. That's it. That's what you have to say. Right? But it's giving you ten horns, and all this geographic: Body of a leopard -- Grecian. Feet of a bear. A bear is what? Iran! I am not saying that. The Bible says that!
Persia. Have you seen Persians lately -- Ahmadinejad? (You know his name Ahmadinejad means The Praised One, The Savior. That's what it means.) He is calling for the destruction of Israel. He is calling for the Imam Mahdi. Remember the one with the seven years peace treaty? He's calling on him to come. You've got to wake up.
What's going on in Iran? Mouth of a lion -- the Babylonian. Babylon was in Iraq and North Arabia. All that region is Babylonian. Islam comes from Babylonia, yes.
Feet of a bear. Daniel 7:5: "The bear rises on one side." That's the long-term fulfillment. Because the bear was Medo-Persia. Medo is Kurdistan (Curds), and Persia is Iran. But Daniel says, the bear will rise on one side, that is, Persia without Media -- Iran without Kurdistan. That's exactly what we have. And that day will pluck in his mouth three ribs. Yes, there's an ancient fulfillment, but there is a future fulfillment when he takes over Iraq, Babylon. In Iraq we have secretarian violence. Shia against Sunni, and there is Kurdistan. So, we have Shia sector, Sunni sector, and Kurdistan. All Iraq is three sectors. Did you know that?
Iran will take over unfortunately. America will pull out. She will chicken. And when this happens, guess what! The whole world will collapse. EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE. The buffer, the American army that's in there preventing Iran from taking over (because remember, Iran is Shia. Iraq is Shia. And Americans are sitting there - buffer zone). Syria is what? Shia government. Lebanon -- the Christians are gone. They are a Shia-controlled government. Did you know that? Hezbollah. What does Hezbollah mean? Hezbollah means The Party of Allah. So, there you have it.
Now, these countries are in Ezekiel 27:20: "Dedan was your merchant..." Verse 21: "Arabia and all the princes of Kedar."
If you don't believe me that this is speaking about the end, the Anti-Christ, let's look at this: It calls the Anti-Christ in Ezekiel 28:2, "Son of man, say to the prince of TYRE." Who is the prince of Tyre? Is this an ancient historic figure? No. Why? Look what it says: "You say, 'I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods.'" Look what it says in verse 7: "Behold, therefore, I will bring strangers against you, the most terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom." It talks about the Anti-Christ, the Prince of Tyre. If you don't believe me that this is the Anti-Christ, if you don't believe me that this is future, look at verse 12: "Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre, and say to him, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God."'"
When was this Prince of Tyre in the garden of God? It was Adam and Steve.
It's Adam and what? Eve.
Verse 14: "You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God... You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created." This is talking about Satan, the Anti-Christ.
Verse 18: "You defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your trading,"
What is Satan trading? What does Satan sell? What does Satan manufacture? What kind of merchandise?
HE SELLS CULTS! He manufactures religions. That's what Satan does best. Look around. How many religions do we have in this world? ...
Ezekiel 29:3: "Behold, I am against you, O Pharaoh king of Egypt,"
Now, he's called king of Egypt, not king of Rome.
"O great monster who lies in the midst of his rivers,"
What's the "rivers"?
Nations, different tribes, ethnic backgrounds, and different languages. He runs a religion with many different languages. The largest conglomerate of muslims is Indonesia. Did you know that most of the muslim world is Oriental? There are 500 million Orientals! The largest sector of Islam is Orientals. There are black muslims, yellow muslims, Bosnian muslim, European muslims, Turkish muslims, Persian muslims -- all different languages.
Ezekiel 29:10: "I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from Migdol to Syene, as far as the border of Ethiopia."
Did this ever happen? When was Egypt destroyed from Migdol to the Aswan Dam? Huge destruction of Egypt -- how could this be carried out? We will have nuclear war! ... their eyes will melt in their sockets and their tongues will melt in their mouths as they stand.
Isaiah 14:23 - I will destroy Babylon "with a broom of destruction!"
What's a broom of destruction??? Have you ever seen a slow-motion nuclear bomb? All the trees and the houses from all sides are swept literally. Amazing!
And then it gives you the names of the nations one by one:
Remember the day of the LORD that I told you about?
Ezekiel 30:3: "For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near; it will be a day of clouds, the time of the Gentiles." That's huge!
Verse 4: "The sword shall come upon Egypt, and great anguish shall be in Ethiopia... Libya, Lydia," What's Lydia? Turkey. "...all the mingled people."
Ezekiel 31:2: "Son of man, say to Pharaoh king of Egypt"
(He is the Anti-Christ. If you don't believe me, look at next verse.)
Verse 2: "Indeed Assyria was a cedar in Lebanon,"
Verse 7: "Thus it was beautiful in greatness and in the length of its branches," (That's Satan.)
Verse 8: "The cedars in the garden of God could not hide it" (That's Satan.)
Verse 10: "Therefore thus says the Lord GOD:
'Because you have increased in height and pride...'"
He is the most proud one!
Verse 12: "And aliens, the most terrible of the nations, have cut it down" Who'll destroy the Anti-Christ? The most terrible of the nations. Who is the most terrible of the nations? Who? America... We are. That's right! ...
Come on, you guys are not terrible? You are very terrible!
You don't believe me? Who else nuked Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Who bombed the hell out of Dresden, Nazi Germany? You guys.
What's one thing I learned about America? They're very nice and happy people. But keep pushing the button, keep pushing the button, keep pushing the button... until they get upset, and then they are Texas style -- baseball bat and everything. And after the whole episode is over, they will sit down and have a drink with you like nothing ever happened. That's Americans. They forgive, but in battle, they are terrible.
Do you think you have this whole nuclear armada for nothing?
You know, every time I go to speak at a church... for every speaking event, I have to drive four hours away from the city to get to the church. Why do I have to drive four hours to get to the church? Why are the Christians always live in the suburbs far away?
If you go to the main city, there is always liberals everywhere. Very few Christians. Mostly liberals. The suburbs Christians. The main cities liberals.
What do you think when the muslims start putting some dirty nukes, where are they going to blow up?
In the main cities. New York, Los Angeles, etc.
You'll be spared.
The liberals will get it. I mean they will GET IT, and then they will "get it..."
Look at Ezekiel 31:16. You won't believe me. He names the nations one by one!
"I made the nations shake at the sound of its fall, when I cast it down to hell together with those who descend into the Pit."
(Remember Revelation? The false prophet and the beast into the pit.)
Ezekiel 32:7: "When I put out your light, I will cover the heavens, and make its stars dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light."
Can there be any doubt what this is talking about? It's the day of tribulation.
Verse 18: "Son of man, wail over the multitude of Egypt"
What religion is Egypt? Muslim.
"and cast them down to the depths of the earth"
Isn't that the lake of fire, the pit?
"her and the daughters of the famous nations"
Verse 22: "Assyria is there, and all her company"
Verse 22: "Assyria is there, and all her company"
Where is Assyria?
Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Iran -- all that is Assyria.
Who's trying to revive Islam there? That's what's happening. They are trying to revive the Islamic Empire there.
Look what it says: verse 23: "Her graves are set in the recesses of the Pit"
What's this thing -- the pit, the pit, the pit, the pit? He is emphasizing it again and again and again so you get it.
Look at verse 24: "There is Elam and all her multitude"
Who is Elam?
Very good! It's Iran.
What's in Iran today? Islam. Fundamentalism. Radicalism.
There are two horns of this beast. One is a Shia sector from Iran, and one will be the Sunni sector which comes from Turkey as well. Remember, the Ottoman Empire, the seventh one, was in Turkey. All muslim radicals are calling on Turkey to revive the caliphate, the one leader that will rule the whole world.
He will honor the god of fortresses, the god of war, as we see it today. He will not honor the desire of women, just as we see it today. By peace, he will deceive many, just as we see it today.
Every single leader in the world says Islam is a peaceful religion. Everyone! Including George Bush.
Islam is a peaceful religion.
BY PEACE HE WILL DECEIVE MANY!
Verse 26: "There are Meshech and Tubal" - the Southern parts of Russia.
Verse 29: "There is Edom" - Edom is Arabia.
"all her kings and princes - down to the Pit." Every single one that was muslim: Down to the Pit. Down into the Pit. Down into the Pit...
And you are not convinced!?
How come all these years the Americans were teaching that Europe was the Anti-Christ?
The LORD works in a mysterious ways. He sent a terrorist.
Paul was a terrorist too. He killed Christians.
Should we take question and answer time?
QUESTION: Do you have a website?
Yes, my website is www.shoebat.com.
I have a book called, Why I Left Jihad. All these things are in there. It has thousands of reasons why I left Islam. For ten years, I have been documenting all my findings and all the things I discovered. They had to get it down to 500 pages (almost 500 pages). It used to be a 1000 pages. It was too much.
So, that's the book. If you are interested in this, write to us, and we will be happy to send you the book.
QUESTION: How do you witness to a muslim?
The same way you witness to a Jehovah witness, a mormon, or anybody. There's no special way of witnessing to muslims.
The best way to witness to muslims is to let them know the truth. Give it to them as a gift. But don't start with "Mohammed is not the prophet" or "Mohammed is a false prophet." If you say, "Mohammed is a false prophet," what is he going to do? Run away from you. Be gentle!
Ask them, "why do you deny that Jesus was crucified?"
You know why the Islam religion came for? For this simple reason: To deny the Father and the Son, to deny the triunity of God.
1 John 2:22: "Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ," that God came down to mankind in flesh: GOD WITH US. (1 Jn 4:3) He who denies that is Anti-Christ, "who denies the Father and the Son."
So, Anti-Christ will deny the Father and the Son.
Islam, vehemently as a religion, came to earth to deny the Father and the Son, to deny the crucifixion of Jesus, to deny that God is the Holy Spirit, to deny the triunity of God. Why? Because it's the spirit of Anti-Christ. He is Anti-Christ that denies the Father and the Son.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:26: "If they say to you, 'Look, He is in the DESERT!' do not go out."
Why did Jesus choose the "desert" specifically? Why the desert?
Because the woman comes out of the desert. Islam and Mohammed come out of the desert. Al-mahdi is a reincarnation of Mohammed. He is the spirit of Mohammed in the mahdi.
The Shiats are waiting for the 12th Imam. The Sunnis are waiting for the Mahdi. The Mahdi of the ends of times will bring the seven-year peace treaty. He must establish a seven-year peace treaty. To prove that he is the Mahdi to the muslims, so they can follow him, he MUST establish the seven-year peace treaty.
Who knows prophecy more than anyone else?
Who, beside Jesus?
Satan knows prophecy more than anyone else. That's why he parallels everything.
Why do you think we have global warming? Oh, global warming! Global warming! Global warming! Why? What is the whole issue about global warming?
It says it in the book that God will cause heat upon the earth as a punishment to mankind. Remember? Make the heat seven fold.
So what does Satan do to get ahead of the ball game?
Let's see. Hmm... I want to weaken America. The terrible nation is going to destroy the muslim Anti-Christ. How can I weaken her?
Hmm... You're burning too much fuel. Smog. You have too many factories. Why don't we put you back... We should put you back in the middle ages. Become like a banana republic, you know. And then you lose all your power and industry and strength.
Don't be fooled, Americans!
He knows this stuff.
I have thousands of reasons, literally thousands, to go over this stuff.
My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge. If you think, knowledge is not important, think again. Knowledge is very important. Without knowledge you are destroyed.
You need to be as wise as a serpent. And then try to work on your innocence, but you'll never succeed. You know, you try, try, and try.
You know what's the difference between Christians and non-Christians? Christians sin as much as the world, but they regret it more.
There are two kinds of people in this world: There are good people who think all the time that they are bad. And there are bad people who always think they're good.
Ask an unbeliever... He will say, "I am basically a good person. I pay my taxes. I don't really harm anybody. . ." Right? But talk to a Christian, and he'll say, "Ah, I am not doing enough!"
Every time I give Christians a lecture in America, they say,
"Oh, we are so bad. We feel so bad. We really need to open our eyes
to the Word of God." They are always regretting, always thinking
bad about themselves.
That means you are good! Confession is the beginning of healing.
We fight against powers and principalities. Who are the powers and the principalities? They are in the government system. They are everywhere. They are influencing leaders.
Satan is not interested in the bar. He is not interested in the whore houses. Satan is interested to be right in your midst. He wants to destroy your pastor. He wants to destroy your marriage. He wants to destroy your Christian witness. He wants to send you some different ideology. He tries to come and give you false theology all the time.
But you know, some of you might not believe me that America is going to be spared from the Anti-Christ.
I cannot conclusively tell you that America will be part of the nations that will destroy the Anti-Christ, but I can share with you some verses from the Bible that will make you think again about the Anti-Christ ruling the whole world.
Open your Bibles to Micah chapter 5.
In fact, the Bible even tells us where Saudi Arabia is destroyed. It tells us also where the oil is destroyed -- how the oil will burn. And it literally mentions it as oil. It takes me a month to go over this, but I just give you a speck of dust from the Bible.
Micah 5:2: "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel"
Do you know about the prophecy about the birth of the Messiah in Bethlehem? Interesting, you know, he was born in my village.
No. I was born in His village.
"Lehem" has two meanings: It means "bread," and it also means "meat." I looked it up in the dictionary, and the ancient Hebrew uses "lehem" as meat and also as bread.
Now, even the name of the village was prophetic! A thousand years before Jesus was born, it was called the "House of the Bread of Life." And during the Passover what did He do? He broke the BREAD, and He said, "This is my FLESH."
How much of the Bible is prophetic after all?
ALL OF IT!
The story of Joseph is the prophecy of the suffering Messiah. The story of Gideon, the waring King Messiah. The story of David, the King Messiah. Everything in the Bible is paralleling the story of the Messiah and His coming kingdom. Everything!
"Blessed are you when they persecute you."
He was just giving a sermon. Right?
No, he was prophesying! He was saying, "I am going to be leaving pretty soon. Blessed are you when they persecute you." In other words, after I bail out, you are going to become Shish kebabs. That's what he was saying.
He was foretelling them that they are going to be persecuted.
Verse 2: "Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel"
Verse 3: "Therefore He [the Messiah] shall give them up"
Give up who? Israel. Why? Because they've rejected the Messiah, so He gave them up.
"...until the time that she"
Who is she? Israel!
"...who is in labor has given birth."
Who is in labor? Persecution. Auschwitz, Treblinka, Holocaust... Mistreatment all over the world gives birth to the nation of Israel.
Israel was born in 1948. I was there in 1967 when Israel took Jerusalem. I watched it with my own eyes.
Why was it called the Six Day War? In 6 days, Israel won. Why? On the 7th, they had to rest. Joshua had to rest on the 7th day when he came to Jericho. Look at the text. He went around the walls of Jericho, and on the seventh day, they blew the trumpets. It was over. Then they rested. Joshua had a Six Day War.
Think about what you're living through. Moses would dance in joy to see what you have seen with your own eyes, because he had a rough time bringing them out of Egypt -- ONE COUNTRY. Yet, they come out of a hundred different countries WITHOUT A MOSES!
Micah 5:3: "Therefore He shall give them up, until the time that she who is in labor has given birth; then the remnant of His brethren..."
Who is His brethren? The Jews. He is talking about Israel.
From 70 A.D. when the Temple was destroyed until now, Israel was in persecution, in labor until she gives birth. And she is still persecuted.
What did you do about them Jews in Auschwitz starving, naked, and hungry?
When I was naked and you clothed me. I was hungry and you fed me. I was in prison and you visited me. (See Matthew 25:36)
Who is he talking about? The Jews.
Do you want to debate that later on? It's up to you.
They will suffer just as He suffered. Naked, just as He was naked. Hungry just as He was hungry. Same way. Silent in front of His accusers.
Died in silence. Who else died in silence? Have you seen the footage of the Holocaust? They stand up on the spot. Boom. Next. Boom. Boom. Boom. They said nothing. No other people in history died in such silence. No one. They did not fight against their accuser. That's why we support Israel.
Micah 5:4-6: "And He shall stand and feed His flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD His God; and they shall abide, for now He shall be great to the ends of the earth. And this One shall be peace. When the Assyrian [the Anti-Christ] comes into our land [into Israel], and when he treads in our palaces, then we [Godhead] will raise against him seven shepherds and eight princely men. They [the seven shepherds] shall waste with the sword the land of Assyria, and the land of Nimrod at its entrances; thus He [the Messiah] shall deliver us from the Assyrian [the Anti-Christ], when he comes into our land and when he treads within our borders."
When was the last time you asked yourself, "Who are the seven shepherds?" Who are the world's seven leaders that will lead an alliance of nations against the Anti-Christ? Which nation do you suspect will be part of this allied war against Iran and Turkey and the Islamic world as they come against Israel? I have a suspicion that it's us.
How does that feel for you as a Christian to realize that you are right on God's path? Even though you see all these bad things happening in your country, there is a huge remnant in this country that stands for Israel and stands with the God of Israel!
And you think the Anti-Christ is going give you a computer chip and take control over your nation?
Not on my dead body!
The Statue of Liberty is not the harlot. When they blow up New York, that doesn't mean God punished New York. That means America wants us to wake up and smell the humus.
Thank you very much. God bless you.
