The Islamic Antichrist: Debunked by Chris White
Author Chris White has released a new book which challenges what is becoming the established view on the religion and ethnicity of the Antichrist. In this book Chris has added some amazing research on the basis for Islamic “holy” writings for which he is to be commended. Unfortunately his main premise is based on a number of misinterpretations of scripture. I highly endorse his section on Islamic eschatology but can’t endorse the book as a whole.
In our last post we examined heaven’s perspective of what will occur at the midpiont of the Tribulation. Satan will attempt to usurp God’s throne in Heaven. Michael the Archangel will stand up from his post restraining the Beast from the abyss to do war with Satan and his demons. Michael and the Heavenly Host will overcome Satan and throw him to the Earth. During this heavenly war, the Beast from the abyss will escape to the Earth and possess the Antichrist.
In this post we will discuss what three main events will happen on Earth. The Beast empowered Antichrist will invade Israel and capture Jerusalem, he will kill the Two Witnesses and then will sit in the Temple of God and proclaim himself to be God.
