What the REAL world Anti-Christ Might Be

As you can already tell, this is not Jon because the first letter was capitalized. This is his brother Nate. I had something to share and Jon was gracious enough to allow me to post on his site. As I am sure many of you do, I wonder what the playing out of the end of the world will really be like, and how we will get there.

Strangely enough my theory on it comes from a strange source, Isaac's blessing of Jacob. For those that do not know the story, here it is briefly. On the day that Isaac was to bless one of his son's, making him the heir to God's blessing. Rebekah, Isaac's first wife, overheard Isaac sending Esau on a hunting trip so he could make food for him, and then give his blessing. She sent Jacob to Isaac with goat skin on his hands, and food. Esau had very hairy hands,the goat skin was so Isaac would not know that he was giving his blessing to Jacob instead of Esau. The trick worked an Isaac blessed Jacob instead of Esau. Earlier, when Esau came out of the wilderness starving to death. Jacob withheld food from him until he gave up his birthright. But God blessed Jacob, and chose his descendants as his people. God also blessed Esau, but did not chose his descendants as his people, and said they would live in constant strife.

This started the feud between Judaism and Islam. With a great hatred that has lasted 2800 years.

Then I thought, why would God accept these truly dispicable people as his chosen people? But this what has started the largest family feud in history. If it was not done this way, then the emnity between Islam and Judaism would not have ever been. Then global terrorism of the Muslims would not have happened. I believe now that God sent Mohammed as a missionary to the Muslims so that they would stop their peace loving ways and start killing. I believe that the people that were trying so hard to do God's will in the crusades, did God's will by killing everyone in every village they went through, that created a deep hatred for the west that lasts to this day.

How does this tie into the Anti-Christ. Well, unless you have been hiding under a rock, that feud that started 2800 years ago is now becoming an all consuming tidal wave across the world. HOW is this happening you ask. Well it is a matter of reproduction. WHAT? you say. A new study about birthing rates has come out. Italy has a 1.3 rate which is able to sustain a society. Not enough to make it grow, but enough to keep it from shrinking. France on the other hand has a 1.0 birth rate, making it a shrinking society. While the Muslims in France Have a 4.4 birthing rate. In fifty years, Muslims will be a majority in France, being able to take over by election. Also, they are in every country doing the same thing. Within one hundred years, at the rate they are birthing compared to the rate the western world is birthing, they will be a power at least twice as awesome as they are now. THAT IS TRULY SCARY. It will create a situation that will have governments and all the people of the world looking for an answer. And they will grasp at anything to help.

The two biggest questions I had about the real Anti-Christ. First is where will he come from? Second is, why would the world welcome this person with open arms and be happy about the deception?

Where will he come from, I believe he will be a Muslim. And what is the great deception, he will give up the dome of the rock for 1/4 of the earth in the assurance of peace with all Muslims. The world will be ecstatic at the thought of safety from terrorists. The only way that the world will believe this, is if the Muslims give up something that is important enough to them, that we are assured they are sincere. In the tribulation the temple will again be built on the original site for the third time. Where the Dome of the rock now stands. Where the Muslims have been fighting for thousands of years to have their holy site. The world will believe this as a true sign of good faith. They will herald the person who could make this happen. Only a Muslim leading other Muslims would be able to accomplish this. They would have to see him as the reincarnation of Mohammed, or finally their savior coming to deliver them. I can see no other way. What do you guys think?

hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!
i knew you couldn't stay away forever. when i told you 17 months ago that i had started blogging and asked you to get involved, you said you weren't that interested. but i knew. i knew it was only a matter of time until you joined the fray. i mean, you're the one who taught me how to think and talk like this so i figured you would love a platform of this nature to discuss your thoughts and ideas. and fortunately, we have a group here who does not mind these things...

i thought that the split happened one generation earlier. i was under the impression that muslims were supposedly the decendants of ishmael. and i wrong on this? not saying that what happens in this world, though woven with our free choices, is not ultimately weaving itself into a tapestry already completed in the future tense. and that god doesn't know the outcome of our choices and is not already there with a solution that was in the making long before we got ourselves into whatever situation we get ourselves into...

could this be it? i'm not sure. still thinking. but wouldn't this person, this "man of lawlessness" have to be someone who will deceive even those who call themselves christians in the religious sense? would "christians" be enamored of a muslim?

thinking...

WOW! nate! it's good to hear from you. i have no formulated thoughts yet, and usually my brain starts to hurt when i try to think about such things, but i have to admit i have never thought about the anti-christ in that way. i will think on this as well.....thanks for sharing!

I am not particularly well versed on the start of Islam, but know that Esau went to the hated relatives to upset Isaac and the family. The strongest point here is that there were many people that were supposedly following God creating attrocities in his name that created the emnity that is now between the muslims and the west. Also with out Mohammed changing the view point of the muslims into convert or kill, the modern terrorists would most likely not have sprung up. I just think it is cool if you put these things together that God can conceive of these things. Basically, throw the ingredients in a pot. Taste on occaision, if not right throw something else in to correct the flavor. That he can do it over eons, is just cool.

yes, i do take notice and think it is wildly interesting how rapidly things have escalated in the middle east on such a GLOBAL scale. the world is taking notice and beginning to get involved in things that have nothing to do with them. i do not see things improving any time soon, but if any person can step in and bring about a peaceful resolution that seems to be "for good", or rather "permanent", between the jews and muslims, i am sure this person will be heralded as some sort of a savior. especially if they are displaying miracles and claiming themselves to be god. many who do not truly know god will be easily deceived. and even some who do.
strange times...

on a seperate note, i assume you (nate) just recieved grandpa's newest book on ephesians and james? i do not think it is a coincidence that we received it so soon before we begin to study james here in january. hopefully you will join us.

Are you familiar with the story of the Trojan War and the Trojan Horse?

This is exactly what is happening all around us.
Think about the pilots who flew into the WTC .. they lived among every day people acting like every ordinary American until the day of their mission. Trojan Horse ... what better way to take over the world ...
I know that there are many moderate Muslims here who like the freedom here and the way of life and also those Muslims who fight alongside the Christians in Africa to free themselves and their children from the terror of the fundamentalist. I am in no way considering these people dangerous ... it is just important to be aware that there are deceptive Muslims among us.

How often do you hear your pastor ask your congregation to pray for the leaders of your country that the Lord will grant them wisdom to enable freedom of worship.

1 Timothy 2
"I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men—"

I ask this question often of my friends and listen for it in church services ... "hardly ever" is the answer....I have not heard a prayer for our leaders in ages ... we are so asleep and fat ... believing that everything is going to stay the same forever. We are not holding a vigil for our own homelands ... we are not standing on guard for our freedom to worship the one and only true God.

Let's start and let's pray and be active participants in the spreading of the good news to our Muslim neighbours.
