Man Of Lawlessness
On a wing of the temple the “anti-christ” (per I John) as Paul calls him the “man of lawlessness”, “the prince that will come” (Daniel) will set up a false worship system. He will install himself on a wing of the temple claiming he is God.
For years I thought the Dome of the Rock was just a temple to Muslim belief and would need to be removed before the Temple could be installed. That would cause a huge war. But from John, in Revelation 11, we learn it sits in the real estate called the Court of the Gentiles.
Its sits over a rough surfaced large rock and that cannot be a threshing floor. The smooth stone of the threshing floor purchased by David is not the irregular rock on which the dome sits. How do you sweep grain off a rough irregular floor. You’d have to have threshed grain to know.
Blasphemous And Boastful
The ultimate abomination is speaking blasphemous and boastful things against God’s only son Jesus, the Christ, He gave as atonement for the sins of the whole world, as John the Baptist testified about Jesus. The Dome of the (wrong) Rock has all this abominable and blasphemous boasting covering it inside and out.
It, the Dome of the (wrong) Rock, is prepared on a wing of the temple for the man of lawlessness, i.e. anti-christ, i.e. “the prince who is to come” to proclaim himself as God. The abomination comes through this man who seeks to change laws and times.
Sharia. The calendar proceeds in Islam from the time Mohammed began the slaughter in Medina after the Jews in Mecca rejected his perversion of the religion of Christianity (learned from Catholics) with Jesus (Islam’s Jesus, not Jesus at all) having been taken up without dying on the cross, being buried and then resurrected. Not Jesus at all.
Spirit of Antichrist
John tells you in I John 4: 1-3: about the Spirit of God and the spirit of the anti-christ:
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.” (NIV)
John says the spirit of antichrist does not acknowledge Jesus Christ (Jesus as both a man and the Son of God) is the spirit of antichrist. Islam claims Jesus is a prophet inferior to Mohammed and to the Mahdi. They claim Jesus, (their has never died) who has never died, will be sent back to earth by allah to correct all the Christians and Jews and kill those who will not convert to the true religion of Islam.
Then they claim Dajjal will come and try to deceive the Muslims claiming he is Jesus the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and Jesus (Islam’s Jesus) will kill Dajjal. Then the Mahdi will establish the worldwide Muslim Califate. Fat Chance!
As we have seen the Lord “God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who has regathered his people Israel and made them to dwell in the land of their forefather is 100% accurate in his (God’s) “telling of the end from the beginning and from ancient times what is still to come.” Isaiah 46: 8-13.
And the Muslims can rest assured they will never defeat Israel or remove them from the land God deeded to Abraham. Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 foretell the Lord’s plan for the resurgent Califate. (Bird Food). Yes the Ottoman Empire, lasted 600 plus years and defeated the eastern Roman Empire in Constantinople and was dissolved in 1924 by partitioning the middle east by the League of Nations in 1923.
The Ottoman Caliphate (Turkish: Osmanlı Halifelik), under the Ottoman dynasty of the Ottoman Empire, was the last Sunni Islamic caliphate of the late medieval and the early modern era. During the period of Ottoman growth, Ottoman rulers claimed caliphal authority since 1517 since Selim I, through conquering and unification of Muslim lands, became the defender of the Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina which further strengthened the Ottoman claim to caliphate in the Muslim world since 1517.
The demise of the Ottoman Caliphate took place because of a slow erosion of power in relation to Western Europe, and because of the end of the Ottoman state in consequence of the partitioning of the Ottoman Empire by the League of Nations mandate. Abdülmecid II, the last Ottoman caliph, held his caliphal position for a couple of years after the partitioning, but with Mustafa Kemal’s secular reforms and the subsequent exile of the royal Osmanoğlu family from the Republic of Turkey in 1924, the caliphal position was abolished.”
Here is the Lord’s prophesy from John in Revelation 13: 1.
13 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. (NIV)
Horns are powers in scripture. Heads are kings in scripture. Crowns are represetative of kings’ power.
St. Peter’s Basilica Vatican City
Now the interesting thing is that the common interpretation is Rome is the city of power sitting on seven hills so we get the Pope (who does not deny Jesus Christ has come in the flesh) as the antichrist. And of course the ten nation European common market E.U. as the beast on which the woman sits.
But that makes Daniel’s vision of Nebuchadnezzar’s statue a one legged (western half of the revived Roman Empire) which has over double the ten horns. There are 28 member nations of the E.U. The cobbled together scenario to indict the Pope is unraveling it seems.
Revelation 17: 9:
“This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated; … .”
This causes me concern because the Rome and Pope stories are widely claimed as true and John working backwards through the nation count sat in the sixth of the Horns.
Seven hills can be translated reasonably as seven mountains. Mountains are powers or kingdoms in scripture. Daniel 2: 35: “But the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.”
The ten horns Seven Heads and ten crowns:
1) Egypt; 2) Assyria; 3) Babylon; 4) Medo-Persia; 5) Greek (three horns uprooted by the little horn), 6) Roman (two legs) Rome then Constantinople; 7) Ottoman Empire; 8 Healed restored Ottoman Empire.
2 The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power his throne and great authority. 3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.
The fatal wound to the caliphate was healed mostly by the west buying oil and making deals which were detrimental to Israel (two nation, divided Israel and such) over the need for that oil. In the case of Europe and the US that is clearly adultery which the kings of the earth have committed with the woman on the beast.
Revelation 13: 5:
“The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty two months. 6 It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 7 It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them.” (NIV)
So, where are the churches listed by John in Revelation 1-3? They have all been destroyed by Islam claiming murder is OK to further their religion.
How about all the Jews in the middle east, before 1948 when Israel was restored? Many millions of them, over 1400 years, are dead and the Muslims justify this as their duty to allah and following the patter of the perfect man, Mohammed who began to murder Jews in Medina because they laughed at his ideas and his claim of new revelation.
Revelation 13: 8:
“All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.” (NIV)
The next beast we see in Revelation 13 may well be the papacy. We have seen this current one gathering with all the religious leaders and including those in Islam.
It is interesting to realize for the 200 years that the church of Rome controlled Jerusalem the Knights Templar used Al Aqsa Mosque opposite the Dome of the Rock as their headquarters.
So in the end perhaps, the papacy becomes the agent of the antichrist in causing the world to worship the beast. I just can’t say.
We can see the abomination of desolation proven mathematically.
And the Mahdi framed as savior in Islam is seen doing the works of the antichrist per Revelation and in Revelation 6 we see the seals opened realizing Satan familiarized himself with the book and wrote an alter narrative with the help of an unfortunate doomed to destruction.
The deceptions and delusion will grow to cover the entire earth. The third world war comes after the removal of him who holds the antichrist back.
An Assyrian as he is called in prophesy. The people who populated the Roman Legions who decimated Jerusalem and burned the temple were not Italians. They were Syrians. Assyria covered Turkey and the Balkans.
Epiphanies Seleucid Kingdom
They significantly overlap and this was also the ISIS territory toward the west the Levant stretches from Egypt to Syria and Turkey touching Saudi Arabia.
How did Mohammed recruit? How about ISIL, as Obama called them? Same appeal to the flesh as the Nazi’s:
“In ghettos and concentration camps, German authorities deployed women in forced labor under conditions that often led to their deaths. German physicians and medical researchers used Jewish and Roma (Gypsy) women as subjects for sterilization experiments and other unethical human experimentation. In both camps and ghettos, women were particularly vulnerable to beatings and rape. Pregnant Jewish women often tried to conceal their pregnancies or were forced to submit to abortions. Females deported from Poland and the Soviet Union for forced labor in the Reich were often beaten or raped, or forced to submit to sexual relations for food or other necessities or basic comforts. Pregnancy sometimes resulted for Polish, Soviet, or Yugoslav forced laborers from sexual relations with German men. If so-called “race experts” determined that the child was not capable of “Germanization,” the women were generally forced to have abortions, sent to give birth in makeshift nurseries where conditions would guarantee the death of the infants, or simply shipped to the region they came from without food or medical care. The Germans established brothels in some concentration and labor camps, and the German army ran roughly 500 brothels for soldiers, in which women were forced to work.”
Sounds like the stories we heard about Arab Spring doesn’t it?
Here is a story from the New York Times on ISIL and Rape.
Here is a listing of Daniel 9: 27 from most major translations in English laying out what the wing of the temple means:
Amplified: And he shall enter into a strong and firm covenant with the many for one week [seven years]. And in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and offering to cease [for the remaining three and one-half years]; and upon the wing or pinnacle of abominations [shall come] one who makes desolate, until the full determined end is poured out on the desolator. (Amplified Bible – Lockman)
ESV: And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator. (ESV)
KJV: And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Interesting no mention to the wing on the temple at all in KJV??? No wonder they think the Pope is the antichrist. He may be the false prophet.
Net: And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate. (NET Bible)
Montgomery: And he shall make strong a covenant for the many for one week. And for half of the week he shall cause to cease sacrifice and oblation, and upon the wing [i.e., of the temple] shall be an Abomination-Appalling, even until end and determination shall pour upon the Appaller.
NLT: He will make a treaty with the people for a period of one set of seven, but after half this time, he will put an end to the sacrifices and offerings. Then as a climax to all his terrible deeds, he will set up a sacrilegious object that causes desecration, until the end that has been decreed is poured out on this defiler.” (NLT – Tyndale House)
Young’s Literal: And he hath strengthened a covenant with many–one week, and in the midst of the week he causeth sacrifice and present to cease, and by the wing of abominations he is making desolate, even till the consummation, and that which is determined is poured on the desolate one.’
From Got Questions.org:
“The Final Week of the 70 Weeks
Of the 70 “sevens,” 69 have been fulfilled in history. This leaves one more “seven” yet to be fulfilled. Most scholars believe that we are now living in a huge gap between the 69th week and the 70th week. The prophetic clock has been paused, as it were. The final “seven” of Daniel is what we usually call the tribulation period.
Daniel’s prophecy reveals some of the actions of the Antichrist, the “ruler who will come.” Verse 27 says, “He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’” However, “in the middle of the ‘seven,’ . . . he will set up an abomination that causes desolation” in the temple. Jesus warned of this event in Matthew 24:15. After the Antichrist breaks the covenant with Israel, a time of “great tribulation” begins (Matthew 24:21, NKJV).
Daniel also predicts that the Antichrist will face judgment. He only rules “until the end that is decreed is poured out on him” (Daniel 9:27). God will only allow evil to go so far, and the judgment the Antichrist will face has already been planned out.
The prophecy of the 70 weeks is complex and amazingly detailed, and much has been written about it. Of course, there are various interpretations, but what we have presented here is the dispensational, premillennial view. One thing is certain: God has a time table, and He is keeping things on schedule. He knows the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10), and we should always be looking for the triumphant return of our Lord (Revelation 22:7).”
Matthew 24: “Keep Watch.” (Jesus)
