Joel Richardson is betting on Islam raising the last antichrist. That is not Biblical. Jesus of Mecca has come in flesh, but Islam denies his divinity.
The question of the last antichrist is a debate that has gone on for the last 2000 years. The last person to throw in a fireball, is Joel Richardson. His book «The Islamic Antichrist» has already become a bestseller.
Without reading the book, by media commentators and bloggers, I can say that the book seems to have serious errors.
Let me first say that there is a Islamic Messianic movement around the 12 Imam. This sect is powerful, since the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a member. But the 12 Imam is not even Jesus, the Islamic prophet.
The 12 Imam is the spiritual head of a dooms day cult, and can never become mainstream Islam, and capable of deceiving billions of Muslims, Catholics and carnal Christians to follow a Universal One World religion.
On of the errors is bailing the Roman Empire out of their responsibility of destroying the Jewish Temple in 70 A.D. To say that it was people from the Middle East who did this, is a copy-cat maneuver from the Nuremberg trials after World War II: The German officers tried to plead not guilty, claiming that they were only obeying orders from a higher officer and generals.
Yes, its possible that the men of local governors and kings did the physical damage to Jerusalem and the temple. But the legal and de facto responsibility will forever lay with Emperor Titus in Rome. Whatever he overlooked the carnage or not in the Roman province.
Richardson claim that the final antichrist will not come from Rome, but from a Muslim nation. And that the nations under the rule of Antichrist will be nations controlled by Islam. That the US and Europe either will be controlled by Islam, or that they will be excluded from the rule of antichrist, is fiction. But a joint new Universal religion that includes Islam will rule both in Washington, London and Paris.
Islam already have a Jesus, who they claim have already have come in flesh. «Jesus of Mecca» is a prophet, a mortal man. That is not the spirit of antichrist. The final antichrist will claim to be God. The Catholic «Jesus of Rome» is a perfect candidate that can unite. He is already represented by a pope who bear the name of God of the Bible. «The Holy Father».
The Pope only have to shift his papal throne from Rome to Jerusalem, than the Vatican has fulfilled the prophecies about antichrist and his religious system. It is more likely that the final antichrist will rule after a joint bid from Washington, Mecca and Rome. Its more easy to unite all copies of the real Jesus around the Papal «Jesus». On a false agenda of World peace they will all become corrupt, compromise and bend the truth.
Richardson claim that Rome can not be Babylon, since the Roman Empire never conquered the city of Babylon. This is a misunderstanding. To the rather radical opposite, it was Babylon who conquered the Vatican. We are not talking about a physical occupation, but a spiritual battle lost . The demons behind the idols for Babylon entered into the idols of Rome. Banned by the Bible, but permitted by the Pontiff and the church he is the head of.
Be careful Brethren. We are living in the age of deceptions. Islam will surely become part of the reign of antichrist, but so will both Italy and USA.
