Islam and Christianity in Bible Prophecy What about ISIS Tim Roosenberg
People keep asking me, Tim does ISIS the Islamic State of Iraq andSyria have any role in Bible prophecyé I've been asked that question severaltimes so today I'm going to share a brief update explaining the roleof ISIS and its potential role in Bible prophecy. You'renot going to find the term ISIS in prophecy, but we dohave the King of the South in Daniel 11. And as I'mwatching current events unfold I'm seeing a very close parallel
going on with Daniel 11's King of the South and King of the North in the third andfinal conflict. To give you an idea, first I've got to explain Daniel 11, beforeI actually get into the role of ISIS. Now I'm going to cover thisin very short form here, in abbreviated form, but if you wouldlike to get more detail on the historical facts behind it, I would encourage you go to ourweb site IslamandChristianity we have it right here onthe screen, and there
you'll be able to find the detailof what I'm just going to summarize today. In Daniel 2 and Daniel 7 and 8 Daniel goes to a whole list of powers.It was an image of different metals and Daniel 2, it'sdifferent beasts in Daniel 7 and 8. Daniel and God use symbols to describeworld history starting in Babylon then we have MedoPersia, Greece,Rome, Divided Rome and then with the little horn. So we have these parallel prophecies starting inDaniel's time, ending with God's kingdom.
Now Daniel 11 will cover the same territory but this time it's going totalk about a King of the North and a King of the South.You see, in Daniel 11 we have a king of the north thatinvades Jerusalem from the north. The Persians are the first one and theytake over from Babylon and they occupy Jerusalem from the north. Jeremiah Chapter 50 even calls the Persians the quot;Kingdom of the Northquot;.
So we have them coming downon Jerusalem from the north. Now in Daniel 11, north andsouth are relative from Jerusalem. Jerusalem is thefocal point of this prophecy. Next we had the Greek Empire,and the Greeks come in from the north and once again they fit in, and Jerusalem is attacked from the north.All the powers of Daniel 2 and 7 attack Jerusalem from the north.But then the Greek Empire splits Seleucid North, Ptolemy South
and you'll notice that Jerusalemgets caught right there in the middle. And so from this time onGod's people are caught in the middle, even Jesus will die in verse22, which happens to be right in the middle of the prophecy. SoChrist and His people are always caught in the middle but, bythe way, you want to be in the middle becauseJesus will rescue those people caught in the middle at the end of this prophecy. Then wehave the Roman Empire
Islamic State ISIS and Bible Prophecy
Hi. I'm training to be an End Time Survivor. I'm trying to listen and learn, so I can live in the last days. Today, I want to talk about Islam and Bible Prophecy. We usually add pictures to our tutorials,Â to make them more interesting. We didn't take much time for that with this one. Â Later we may be able to add more artwork. Many people ask us how the Islamic StateÂ fits in with Bible prophecy. People rarely agree on any prophecy,so you may need to work out for yourself what some prophecies mean,Â and how they will change your life.
The bottom line isÂ â€œhow they change your lifeâ€�. If prophecy does not change lives,Â it can be dangerous. Prophecy is often usedÂ to promote bigotry and fear. Â We don't want to be part of that. I will say 3 things about Islam in this tutorial,Â without a clear conclusion for any of them. I. The Antichrist World Government We accept the teaching about which empireÂ replaced the Greek Empire:Â the Roman Empire. But we do not believe theÂ finalÂ empireÂ must come from Rome. That teaching is popularÂ if you see the Roman Catholic ChurchÂ as the source of the Antichrist.
The Antichrist governmentÂ could come from anywhere. We think it will come from 10 membersÂ of the U.N. Security Council. Tutorials on this channel teach aboutÂ the 5 permanent members of the Security Council. Many see Islam as the final world government. The Islamic empire outgrew the Roman Empire,but it was never unified. The Bible says the last government is very cruel.Â Islam has always been a cruel religion. Size and cruelty could make IslamÂ either the 4th empire or the final one. But we are slow to accept the Islamic StateÂ as the source of the Antichrist.
The reason: Â The Bible says the Antichristwill be charismatic, and bring world peace. It is more likely that the AntichristÂ will bring an end to Islamic cruelty. Bible prophecy sees all political powers as evil,Â even though some are more evil than others. A political divide between the good and the badÂ is contrary to the teachings of Jesus. 2. Â Islam and Violence Nevertheless, Islam as a whole is extremely violent. Â To be fair, the Old Testament is very violent too. A race between the Old Testament and the KoranÂ over who is more violent, will be very close. But the teachings of Jesus show both religionsÂ to be exceedingly cruel and violent.
Sadly, institutional ChristianityÂ still lives largely in the Old Testament They believe God needs armies, and they defend IsraelÂ even when Israel is inhumane and cruel. But true Christians see Jesus as superiorÂ to any other character in the Bible. It may not be practiced as it should be,Â but Christianity as Jesus taught it,Â is the most nonviolent religion ever set up. Muslims may say Islam does not promote violence. They say passages that speak of killing infidels are only talking about acting in selfdefence. But ask them who is the greatest authorityÂ on interpreting the Koran. The Koran says that Mohammed is. Unless Muslims challenge that part of the Koran,Â they must admit that another book (The Hadith),Â gives the true interpretation of the Koran.
The Koran may allow peaceful interpretations,Â But what Mohammed says in the Hadith does not. The Islamic State is, in fact, preaching pure Islam,Â as taught by the Koran and by Mohammed. Islam teaches that conquest is a part of God's will.It also says Muslims can lie, to deceive infidels. So don't be confused by people who sayÂ that most Muslims are peaceful. The religion is officially and extremely violent. Â Until they kill us all, their books won't let them stop. 3. The Kingdom of Heaven But the message of Jesus is thatÂ God judges us individually not by our religion. Aligning with Christianity or with JudaismÂ will not save anyone
