Muslims And Buddhists Work Together To Destroy 1500 Christians

By Theodore Shoebat
Muslims and Buddhists are working together to destroy the lives of 1500 Christians.
The Buddhist nation of Sri Lanka is driving out from its country 1500 Pakistani Christians back to Pakistan where they will be either imprisoned or executed.
Local news in Sri Lanka said that “These people were to be deported because of their alleged involvement in ‘anti-state activities’ in India and Pakistan”.
By “Anti-state activities” they of course mean the Christians’ affronting the state religion of Sri Lanka, Buddhism. Here is a video that previously posted showing a line of dead Christians murdered by Buddhists in Sri Lanka:

"The War Muhammad Promised Us-The Great Tribulation" & U.N. TO LOCK DOWN U.S.


The ISIS Jihadist Say: “This Is The War Muhammad Promised Us; The War Of The Great Tribulation”

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)
Anthony [Shoebat's son, I believe] said: “It is hard to imagine how the planet can continue much longer, judging by the rate it is descending into barbarism.”
What is happening Anthony is that we are approaching a revival of a dark history when Islam proudly built pyramids out of human skulls and made blood flow in ravines. And when you see this revival of Islam complete is when you will look back at our current time now and say: “these were the good old days”.
These fighters who gather in Iraq and Syria are not there for the primary goal to fight Maliki and Assad. Abu Omar, a Sunni jihadist fighting in Aleppo said, “If you think that all these mujahideen came from around the world to fight Assad, you are mistaken. All of them came here as it was foretold and promised by the Prophet. It is the war He promised us; the war of The Great Tribulation.”
The Jihadists have a set of belief that one third of the Muslims in the world will be killed.
They study Bible Prophecy and are very aware of the text in Revelation and prepare to be the antithesis of what Christians believe; the white horse rider is the soon to come Mahdi and the “Euphrates” in Revelation 9 to them is their Caliphate in Iraq and the one-third who are slain they consider it about them, the only true Muslims:
“Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.” (Revelation 9:14-15)
They even have their prophetic narrative which includes the peace treaty which they believe is made between the Muslims under the leadership of the Mahdi and the Roman (crusader Christian world) and speak of a battle between the two in which they believe that one-third of the Muslims will lose to join the Christians and betray Islam. These will be unforgiven and end up in hellfire. The other third will be martyred to enter paradise and yet another will gain the victory in Armageddon which they even spell out in their teachings.
The mission they have to to do is a great slaughter in which blood will be spilt as a river and heads will pile up in mounds. Indeed, on June 10 the Islamic State in Al-Sham (ISIS) burst upon the world with the capture of Mosul in Iraq, the effective obliteration of the Iraq/Syria border (and possibly the Iraqi state itself), a highly-self-publicized massacre of prisoners (some accounts say more than 1,700), the sudden creation of up to half a million internally displaced refugees in Iraq, and emphatic threats to eradicate Shia Muslim shrines, the Kingdom of Jordan, and (as of June 22) to do the United States more harm than Osama bin Laden ever did. In mid June, ISIS posted pictures on Twitter that appeared to show the massacre of 1,700 Iraqi soldiers after the fall of the city of Tikrit.

False Prophet Pope Says There Is No Salvation Outside Of The Roman Catholic System

Looks like the Pope is in disagreement with Jesus and His WORD .... Who is on the Lord's side? I am. My name may be on the "Red List," but it is also written in Heaven. That trumps the Pope.  CMR

THE POPE Decrees that indiviual salvation OUTSIDE OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC church does not exist

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9
Pope Francis gave a sermon on June 25th in Rome, where he dispelled any and all lingering doubt about how the Vatican views worldwide Christianity. Francis once again declared his unshakable belief that the Roman Catholic Holy Mother Church – the very same one mentioned in Revelation 17 & 18 as the ‘Whore of Babylon’ – is the one and the only church. Listen to Pope Francis as he tells you in his own words exactly what he thinks of all Christian churches outside of the Roman Catholic Church:
“No one becomes Christian on his or her own! Is that clear? No one becomes Christian by him or herself. Christians are not made in a laboratory. A Christian is part of a people who comes from afar. The Christian belongs to a people called the Church and this Church is what makes him or her Christian, on the day of Baptism, and then in the course of catechesis, and so on. But no one, no one becomes Christian on his or her own. If we believe, if we know how to pray, if we acknowledge the Lord and can listen to his Word, if we feel him close to us and recognize him in our brothers and sisters, it is because others, before us, lived the faith and then transmitted it to us. We have received the faith from our fathers, from our ancestors, and they instructed us in it.”
Presenting the False Prophet from the Book of Revelation
In the past 2,000 years the pagan-based Catholic Church system has been the hands-down, far and away, number one murderer of Christians on the face of the earth. The Vatican murdered Christians for 300 years in the catacombs, for 300 years during the Spanish Inquisition, and will once again kill them in record numbers during the coming days of the Great Tribulation that will take place after the Rapture. Listen again to Francis as he tells you that without the Virgin Mary, and the Church of Rome you cannot know God:
“Dear friends, let us ask the Lord, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, for the grace to never fall into the temptation of thinking we can make it without others, that we can get along without the Church, that we can save ourselves alone, of being Christians of the laboratory. On the contrary, you cannot love God without loving your brothers, you cannot love God outside of the Church; you cannot be in communion with God without being so in the Church.”
“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” Revelation 16:13,14
We do hereby officially declare Pope Francis to be the False Prophet of the book of Revelation, and everything he has been doing since he was made Pope shows  this to be true. He is uniting all of Christianity under the umbrella of Rome, as well as the Muslims and Islam whom he plans on using as his muscle to carry out his edicts.
Behold, I have told you before.” Matthew 24:25

Watch How Giving Allegiance to Antichrist is Beginning to Take Root

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), known locally as DA’ISH. The final “S” in the acronym “ISIS” relates to the Arabic word “Sham” which refers to establishing the Caliphate in the Levant or Eastern Mediterranean including Cyprus, Palestine, Jordan, Syria, and southern Turkey. 

Recently, ISIS has just announced that Raqqa, the only one of 14 Governorates it controls in Syria, is now the “Capital” of their emerging “Caliphate”, which so far is a swathe of territory encompassing much of eastern and northern Syria and western and northern Iraq. 

The Emir (The Prince) is to be their military strategist and leader and successor of Abu Mus’ab Zarqawi, Dr. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

DA’ISH focuses exclusively on recapturing Jerusalem and destroying the Zionist regime occupying Palestine through DA’ISH’s “Al Quds Unit” (AQU) or the Jerusalem Unit, which is currently working to broaden its influence in more than 60 Palestinian camps and gatherings from Gaza, Judea and to Jordan, and Lebanon up to the north of Syria seeking to gain allegiances as it prepares to liberate “Jerusalem” and “Palestine”.

The White House estimates that approximately six million Iraqi Sunni have recently given allegiance to DA’ISH which has become the richest terrorist organization in the world.

The world should not ignore this emerging threat. Islam grew from a handful of converts to later have the entire region give allegiance to Islam and threaten the world, and Da’ish has the similar objective titling itself as the “revolution of the oppressed.”

And now with the theft of the bank in Mosul, Da’ish has half a billion dollars and has grand plans to invade Jordan to begin tightening the noose on the Zionist state. To Dai’sh, Jordan was an invention of the British who planned to tighten the noose around the Jewish state of Israel. And within Jordan, Da’ish gains much support in Ma’an and in the north many Salafists Jordanians from Palestinian origins support Da’ish. In addition, the Naqshbandi Sufi Muslims and several Al-Nusra leaders have given a “mubaya’at” (allegiance) to Da’ish. 

We urge everyone to study our report on how the Sufi Muslims are joining Da’ish in which one can see how full-fledged demonism has taken control and how the Sufis encompass one fifth of the Muslim world including the most major Muslim nation in the world; Turkey.

Everyone should learn what Islam coined as Mubaya’at or “Bay’at“, was Sharia commanded giving an allegiance to the Prince of the Faithful, which currently Al-Baghdadi, Da’ish’s leader pledged to establish the Caliphate.” 

In the Bible, a “beast” stands for a threat to the Jews and Christians. Giving allegiance to the “beast” is to give allegiance to what threatens us all. Da’ish is seeking the allegiance of all Muslims. Here is an example of such an allegiance (see video HERE - start 1:07):

“Say I pledge my allegiance to the Prince of the Faithful, to hear and obey, in hardship and in blessings, to establish the religion of Allah, and to enforce Allah’s Sharia, and to expand the order of Allah, to establish the global Islamic state.”

Such allegiance is also given in masse: (Video)

Even many tribes have given such allegiance. The Hadideen tribes in Allepo Syria here can be seen giving allegiance to the Caliphate: (Video)

Even in Gaza, terrorists can be seen giving allegiance to Da’ish:(Video)

Refusing to give allegiance, as the Bible stated, is punishable by death. When Mosul was occupied by Da’ish, 12 religious leaders were executed for refusing to give such allegiance. 

We are definitely beginning to see some interesting and troubling signs that “in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.”

As we stated before, these verses are not regarding gothic atheist metal heads. It speaks of a people “having a form of godliness”. They have a facade of religion. They do forms of worship and service evil as if it was to God. They are cruel. They kill. They blaspheme God the Holy Spirit and the Trinity. They are unloving towards fellow man. They are traitors to everything decent. They use gullible women promising them heaven in order to use them sexually. They would even disobey their parents who try to stop them or reason with them to the point that they would even kill them. One in Kerkuk, Iraq, even sprayed his father with several rounds of bullets killing him for not giving allegiance to Da’ish and in Sa’dieh, 3 brothers were executed for the same reason.

And now the threat expands. The Jordanian borders to Israel are the longest and most difficult to protect for Israel.

A realization needs to take place within the Prophecy community as to the nature of Antichrist and his expansions to see the real perspective we find on the ground. Many who expect Jordan to fall under the hands of the Antichrist believe that the reason Antichrist spares Jordan is the fact that King Abdullah II is descendant of the prophet Mohammed which gives him incredible influence in the world of Islam. But such an analogy is flawed since Muhammad killed his own relatives like Abu Jahl who did not live up to code and the Muslims even murdered Muhammad’s grandsons later.

Many presume that Israel will flee to Petra, but the Bible does not explicitly state that a remnant in Israel will escape to Petra. With air travel, any place can be prepared in the desert wilderness for fleeing Jews, and Nevada could qualify. Such a major threat will force Israel to send civilians out of the country and “on the wings of eagles”, could likely mean that this would be a flight of Israeli Jews:
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:30-31)
Will Israel flee as result of Da’ish? Unlikely. Which is more reason to believe that what is transpiring in the Middle East is part of a much larger picture. We have reported on Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan who has warned the U.S. of the risks of launching air strikes against the Da’ish (ISIS) in Iraq claiming concern about the fate of dozens of Turkish citizens captured last week by the ISIS. But all this is a ruse; Turkey cares less about the dozens of captured Turkish citizens when it was Turkey who aided the ISIS in the first place.

We perceive that the whole story of Da’ish is a master plan with Turkey working alongside Iran to divide the region.

First of all, the evidence to use Da’ish for such sinister plans was revealed during the Turkish incursions into Syria when an anonymous YouTube account presented a recording of intelligence of the top movers and shakers in Turkey of a possible military operation against Syria and, if needed, creating a staged terror attack, in coordination between Turkish intelligence and the very ISIS terrorists who invaded Iraq. In Syria, such coordinated plan between the ISIS and Turkey was to destroy a Turkish historic monument the Suleiman Shah burial place to create an excuse and spark a war in Syria. Many in the prophecy arena felt that Isaiah 17 was around the corner when Syria went into chaos. But we must wait for Syria to be in the full control of Islam.

It was Turkey that aided the ISIS in the northeastern parts of Syria when terrorists like the ISIS continue to organize the theft of oil to be shipped towards Turkey and sold cheaply which funded over $800 million to terrorists including the ISIS; all this banditry under the guise of a European’s decision to allow for the “Syrian opposition” to export stolen oil.

The evidence is even bolstered when then we had Iran’s Hassan Rouhani’s surprising visit to Ankara, which is no coincidence. As soon as this visit took place the ISIS was on the move into Iraq, and Iran never blamed Turkey for aiding the ISIS, instead moved into Iraq asking the U.S. to give the green light to clean Iraq from the ISIS.

Iran’s visit to Turkey during June 9-10 was all about deceit while dubbing it as “boosting economic ties” which was simply a cover. When ISIS raided Turkey’s Mosul consulate and took 49 hostages, including the consul general, it was not only a plan to push Ankara and Tehran closer politically, but it mimics the similar concocted plan that was exposed when Erdoğan’s government was planning a false flag attack to be executed by the ISIS against the tomb of Suleiman Shah in Syria as to justify the intervention of the Turkish army in Syria, therefore making an excuse to invade Syria.

It all makes sense and has the trademark of a neo-Ottoman conspiracy. If Turkey’s plans were proven from the leaked recording of the top full birds of Turkey regarding Syria, is no conspiracy theory, we can then conclude that the expansion of ISIS into Iraq, Syria and Lebanon by the ISIS is a plausible Turkish or even Iranian-Turkish plan.

The story of Da’ish (ISIS) is the story of a beginning embryo into the world of this developing Antichrist system.

Birth Pangs & Clues - Middle East

NEWS: ALERT! Obama Is Bringing Syrian 'Chemical Weapons' to Texas!

For original article, pictures and very short videos click on the title below.

We Are Entering The Beginning Of Birth Pangs

By Walid and Maria Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

In December of 2010, the middle east was changing forever when the so-called Arab Spring sparked a series of uprisings. The world was fooled to think this is an end of a dictatorial era and a new jump-start to democracy and freedom. We warned, but the world was not listening. Then by December 2013, what seemed to be the powers holding the spirit of Antichrist at bay, was being taken out of the way, as Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen were toppled and then plunged into a dark quagmire of terrorism and sectarian violence. The hopefuls were blamed and the villans got away with all the evil they can muster.

There were the religious clergy spewing hatred and injecting poison into the minds of the masses. The Muslim fundamentalist blamed the secularist while the secularist who hated the Muslim fundamentalist blamed what they termed, the Ameri-Zionist conspiracy, and the entire Middle East was even more infected to even hate us forevermore.

Other civil uprisings with the same infection had erupted in Bahrain and Syria; major protests had broken out in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, and sudan. Also minor protests had occurred in Mauritania, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti, Wester Sahara, and the never ending land of Jew-hatred, the Palestinian territories.

America and Israel has never been hated as much as now.

Today we see what held Islam in check, is being taken out of the way, and a type of lawlessness with an ora of a strange evil never imagined before is gripping the very nations that so much struggled to abolish the very dictatorial leaders they  so much abhorred.

Masses run to and fro in total confusion victimizing while being themselves victimized.But it wasn’t only the bizarre in man that manifested a strange phenomenon, the heavens was spewing out some strange beings. On January 28, 2011, what was mistakenly thought to be a light orb or UFO appeared in the Middle East. A closer look seems to show what appeared from the heavens was perhaps a seraphim, a fiery angel, or a winged solar disk, with its piercing glowing florescent light. It was forming wings while it hovered as if observing or proclaiming its presence over the holiest site man ever knew in Jerusalem, on top of Mount Zion, and at the Temple Mount, even on the tip of the crescent moon atop the Dome of the Rock.  It had a more of a bird like display as one can clearly see it hovering with its  sharp wing tips and then it suddenly bolted upwards into the heavens, in a twinkling of an eye. Many amateurs tried to debunk it but no serious agency came forth to issue any statements to call this occurrence a manmade hoax.

Was it good or was it evil? Or perhaps it was proclaiming judgment upon the land, we would never know. What we do know is that this winged being was seen and depicted in ancient history.
From the end of 2011 to 2013, even until now, we have experienced many phenomenal occurrences; millions of dead fish washed up along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, hundreds of tons of dead fish in Brazil, velvet crabs washing up on the coast of Great Britain, penguins dying and littering the beaches of New Zealand and even crows falling out of the sky in Sweden and thousands of turtle Doves falling dead to the ground in Italy.

The world, while it wasn’t able to show previous records of such phenomenons, tried to make excuses, that the fish are very sensitive to the Earth’s magnetic field and that fish were dying as result of the earth releasing deadly gasses all of the sudden and that bird-haters were shooting fireworks into bird roosts. More conspiracy theories were issued that of chemical and biological warfare testing by the U.S. government that were carried out in a variety of circumstances.

We are definitely beginning to see some interesting and troubling signs, not just in nature itself, but in the nature of men. Who could imagine years ago that we would witness the horrific and the unthinkable ways the ISIS are killing people and in styles  that makes Al-Qaeda seem merciful. Who would even think of such an institution that would use beheading as law, amputations, slavery, concubinage, to even re-institute ancient Roman laws as Crucifixion:
These are desensitized demons who kill with remorseless brutality as if they were human-sharks having dark emotionless masscarad cold eyes, killing the old, the lame, the woman, and the child in cold blood:

But all this is only the beginning of sorrows. You will not notice as you see more shock after shock scenes of so many bizarre happenings that you too, without notice become desensitized to the utmost forms of cruelty.

Decades ago, Americans would have never imagined that even in the U.S., we would see the sick homosexual movement attacking the very basic principles of natural law. In the past we had normal sin in which one was ashamed for stealing a chicken, but today, they would teach that having sex with a chicken as absolutely normal. Today we see a rise of more irresponsible citizens demanding free benefits as if its a right, electing who will steal from the working to serve the winebibber and the lazy.

We are definitely beginning to see some interesting and troubling signs, not just in nature itself, but in the nature of men, that “in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.”

The Bible tells us “And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

No, these verses are not regarding gothic atheist metal heads. It speaks of a people “having a form of godliness”. They have a facade of religion. They do forms of worship and service evil as if it was to God. They are cruel. They kill. They blaspheme the Holy Spirit and the Trinity. They are unloving towards fellow man. They are traitors to everything decent. They use gullible women promising them heaven in order to use them sexually. They would even disobey their parents who try to stop them or reason with them to the point that they would kill them. It remind me of the days when we said “I give up my father and my mother O Prophet of Allah”. All for the sake of a dead man, denying the One who died, rose from the dead and lives forevermore.

Finishing Well ...

.. is determinative. The Lord may allow you to take the ultimate test of your obedience and loyalty to Him, perhaps even through the ultimate honor:  martyrdom. Many Christians across the world have faced this test, and are currently doing so.

In the war in which we are engaged if you don't finish well all previous efforts are useless. Lost. They count for nothing. If you say that you are committed to Jesus Christ - and you are tested, required to renounce the name of Jesus on pain of the guillotine -  and your fear causes you to renounce him, take the Mark, and take an oath of obedience to the Antichrist, you are lost for eternity. Satan is lying in wait for you. It's not that you've lost your salvation. You were never saved. You were a CINO - Christian In Name Only. As the Lord himself said: "Ye must be born again." A true Christian will not take the Mark and worship the beast, because he is sealed by the Holy Spirit. He has the mark of God.  

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Are you afraid to die? If so, why? There is no such thing as death. A Christian has not yet begun to live.  Life in the flesh is only a shade. A school. A test. A reflection of your real self, your spirit.

FEAR IS THE ULTIMATE LACK OF FAITH. And faith is what is required.

Why do you call yourself a Christian? What is your reason, your motivation, for following Christ? The answer should be the same as His reason for shedding His blood for you: LOVE.

This spiritual war is one of endurance. With God's help I will not be moved. No matter what. I expect the rapture soon, but God has not given me His schedule!  He has promised us (it was not our idea, as some seem to say) that we would not go through the unprecedented tribulation of the end times - the time of Jacob's trouble and unlike any other tribulation that has ever occurred. However, in the meantime there is no reason for me to expect any treatment different from that of my Christian brothers and sisters who are  currently being persecuted, even to death.

ISIS in Iraq is the onset of something entirely different - a drastic escalation of evil and butchery which the world has not known in this age. It would be very naive to believe that it is not coming to the United States. Suddenly. And soon.

Make sure that you are ready to go the distance.

Antichrist Will Soon Enter The Temple of God

My last post was a re-post from two years ago, an interview of Walid Shoebat, author of a dynamic book, God's War On Terror, which takes a completely different view of the fulfillment of end time prophecy than does the one which has been handed down for the last hundred or so years - and which doesn't seem to be working out for us.

Shoebat was a Muslim terrorist who converted to Christianity due to the faithfulness of his Christian mother and, of course, God's mercy. I thought the book made wonderful sense when I read it, and I've had it in the back of my mind for several years. I'm not saying it's the answer to prophecy; I'm just saying that we should consider it. Americans always think everything is going to happen in the good old USA, but all of biblical history happened in the Middle East. Maybe that will remain the same in the present and the future. Anyway, it's interesting. If you would like to read the article with some great pictures, you can find it HERE at Shoebat's website. CMR

Antichrist Will Soon Enter The Temple of God (Pay Close Attention)

By Shoebat Foundation on June 3, 2014 

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

Hagia Sophia, or Ayasofya in Turkish, is officially a museum: Turkey’s most-visited monument, whose formally neutral status symbolizes the secular nature of the modern Turkish state. But this status is changing when tens of thousands of Muslims have been gathering there on Saturday to pray demanding it will again be turned into a mosque — a dream they believe Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan can fulfill.

Erdogan is planning to pray inside the Hagia Sophia Temple, reports the Radikal Turkish daily newspaper which will probably be performed during the annual celebrations just before the August elections when Erdogan wants to retake his office of prime-minister.

Erdogan’s government is stepping up its calls to turn the Hagia Sophia into a functioning mosque, but Orthodox Christians complain that this is a desecration of the holiest site in Christendom.

Anatolia Youth Association (AGD) had made a call for the event that came at a time when several radical groups have been discussing the status of the museum.

“This is a serious push to break Ayasofya’s chains,” said Salih Turhan, head of the Anatolia Youth Association, which has collected 15 million signatures to petition for it to be turned back into a mosque.

This despite that the 17th Century Sultan Ahmed Mosque, remains mostly empty of worshippers and Istanbul boasts more than 3,000 mosques. The eyes are glued on desecrating Christianity’s most sacred Temple, the Hagia Sohpia.

“Ayasofya is a symbol for the Islamic world and the symbol of Istanbul’s conquest. Without it, the conquest is incomplete, we have failed to honor Sultan Mehmet’s trust,” he said, citing a 15th Century deed signed by the conquering Caliph and decrying as sin other uses of Hagia Sophia.

It was Erdogan who promoted celebration of the Turkish conquest that turned Constantinople into Istanbul: “Conquest is the removal of shackles on doors and in hearts,” he said to mark the 561st anniversary of the Byzantine defeat. ” Civilization comes with conquest,” he added.

Erdogan’s talk of conquest, expansion and his reviving of the dead man of Europe is painting his Neo-Ottoman dream as a red dragon. Erdogan is daily becoming an Antichrist who wants to enter a great Christian Temple, yet he is met without any resistance from western Christians. Even the 2012 film depicting the Muslim takeover of the Byzantine capital, “Conquest 1453″, attracted an audience of millions.

From its construction, until 1453, when the Ottoman Empire conquered the city, Hagia Sophia served as an Eastern Orthodox Temple and the seat of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, the Ottomans turned it into a mosque before being secularized and converted to a museum in 1935.

Prominent imams, including the harlot state of Saudi Arabian, Imam Abdullah Basfar, the imam of the Ka’bah in Mecca, Islam’s holiest site was present at the event to lead the prayers. The crowd left the area after the prayer chanting slogans that say Hagia Sophia should be a mosque.

Orthodox Christians see Hagia Sophia as a Temple to be the most significant structure in all Christian history.

American Evangelicals are either unaware of the significance of such structure or see that the Temple was built by Constantine the Great, which makes it insignificant.

Only time will tell who is right, Constantine had his share of sins and so did Solomon. But all Christians need to pay close attention to Erdogan’s desecrations of significant Christian or Jewish landmarks. Its not only 2 Thessalonians 2 which speaks of desecrating a temple, other text in Isaiah 14 grabs our interest.

But first, in 2 Thessalonians:

“for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who oppose and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” (II Thessalonians 2:4)

Many would pause here and stop reading further since such a scenario is far-fetched; a Muslim Antichrist who enters Hagia Sophia is fulfillment? Isn’t Antichrist supposed to enter the Temple in Jerusalem? Indeed. And how could a Muslim declare to be God when Muslims deny that a man can be God?

This requires patience, study and attention. Not comprehending these issues is either caused by the lack of comprehending Islam or even inductively understanding the Bible.

First of all, Antichrist, while he claims titles that belong to deity, he also worships a deity: “He will honor a God of fortresses” (Daniel 11). This is not some allegory for he “acts against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory” (Daniel 11:39).

He serves a “foreign god,” which he shall “acknowledge” and via warfare he “advances its glory”, the glory of this single-war-god while he proclaims deity. Everything fits, including that he does not honor the “desire of women” (woman’s needs, rights).

It can’t get any clearer than this. Only in Islam can we find Muslim multitudes, while they deny they worship Muhammad and Mahdi, yet indeed they deify them. Muhammad in Islam holds a uniquely exalted status unparalleled by anything or anyone else. He is given the title Al-Maqam-Al-Mahmud (The Glorious).

Christians who know little about Islam, and who go around giving interpretations, complain much asking “how can Antichrist be Muslim when Muslims exclaim, “we do not worship any man, we worship Allah””.

Truth is, Muslims deify Muhammad and Mahdi giving them titles that only belong to god: Al-Maqam-Al-Mahmud (The Glorious One), Awal-Khalq-illah (The first of Creation), Muhammad (The Praised One), Al-Insan Al-Kamel (The Perfect Man), Rahmatan-lil-A’alameen (Mercy to All Mankind), Al-rasul Al-A’tham (The Greatest of All sent by God), Shafi (Healer), Munji (Savior), Mahdi (The Guided One/Deliverer), Al-Mustafa Al-Mukhtar (The Chosen One), Amir (The Prince), Khatimun-Nabiyeen (The Seal of Prophets), Al-Hadi (The Guide), Awal (First), Akher (Last), Sayyid Walad Adam (The Leader of The Sons of Adam) and Al-Siraj Al-Muneer (The Luminous One, The Glowing Lamp). (1)

It’s a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.” (Daniel 11:38)

We can either see a biblical contradiction or we need to reconcile the verses. One of the five main obligatory pillars of Islam is for every Muslim to pay Zakat by giving one-fifth of their income—their gold, and their silver to honor and advance the cause of Allah:“Zakat is for the poor and the needy, and… to free the captives and the debtors, and for the cause of Allah, and (for) the wayfarers; a duty imposed by Allah. Allah is knower, Wise.” (Qur’an 9:60).Zakat is not only for the poor, but a tax to expand the rule of Allah via warfare which the Qur’an is quite clear about:“And those who hoard up gold and silver and do not spend them in the cause of Allah.” (Qur’an 9:34).

Erdogan by invoking to pray at Hagia Sophia wants to be Sultan Mahdi in order to be exalted above all of creation and literally wants to sit in the Temple of God in Hagia Sophia.

Evangelicals propose the possibility of such temple to be only in Jerusalem, while many Orthodox Christians object to such rebuilding referring to John 4:21: “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.” (John 4:21) They would argue that historically it has been the pagans who wanted to rebuild a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem during the mid fourth century and God struck them dead.(2)

Evangelicals would argue that indeed, God struck them dead because this was not the right timing.

But the solution to the dilemma is that it could be both. Antichrist enters Hagia Sophia and a newly rebuilt temple in Jerusalem as well. 2 Thessalonians does not speak of the Temple being in Jerusalem. But this does not negate that it could be in Jerusalem since Revelation speaks of measuring the altar and that the Gentiles would tread foot in Jerusalem for 42 months

But Isaiah 14 holds a key. While most brush through the verses in Isaiah 14 by doing selective reading without focusing on every word, verse 13 says:
“I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north.”

What is this “mount of the congregation”?

This declaration is not regarding Lucifer in his angelic stage, but Antichrist “is this the man that made the earth tremble” (v.17) and is said to rule from Pergamum (Revelation 2:12-13) which Christ proclaimed would be the future seat of Satan (Antichrist). This “mount of the congregation” is on the sides of the northern lands in Asia Minor—Turkey. It is in Turkey that the Seven Churches and the Seven Lamp stands were and this is no small issue to ignore. 

Others see this “mount of the congregation” as the temple in Jerusalem. This is not without merit: “… the joy of the whole earth, in mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.”

When Turks captured Constantinople in 1453, Sultan Mehmet, an Antichrist (there are many Antichrists before the final one) of the seventh-head (empire) immediately went to the Hagia Sophia and ordered that it be converted into a mosque, he added abominations; the Islamic elements were added such as minarets, the mihrab and the minber all of which were appropriately positioned to face toward Mecca, including two huge marble jars which were brought from Pergamum in the 16C and added written blasphemies in Islamic calligraphy. The names painted on these plaques are Allah, Prophet Mohammed, the first four Caliphs Ebubekir, Omer, Osman and Ali, and the two grandsons of Mohammed, Hasan and Huseyin.

Muslim blasphemies replaces Christian signs: “We see not our signs” (Psalm 74:9) “Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.” (v. 4)

 As for Jerusalem’s Temple, many question, how could Wahhabi Islam allow for a Temple to be rebuilt in Jerusalem? But the problem is that too many focus on Wahhabism alone. Turkish brand Sufi Islam is a bit craftier and the Turks even already have the Quranic alkaline verses ready:

“And who is more unjust than he who forbids that in places for the worship of God, God’s name should be celebrated?-whose zeal is (in fact) to ruin them? It was not fitting that such should themselves enter them except in fear. For them there is nothing but disgrace in this world, and in the world to come, an exceeding torment.” (Koran 2:214)

Today, the most fit to bring reconciliation between Shiite and Sunni, Jew and Arab are the Sufi Muslim Turks in which it will produce the Antichrist. The Sufis of Turkey are Sunni, this brand of Islam is different from the Wahhabist which is vehemently anti-Shiite.

Turkey has great reverence to the Shiite icons of Ali, Hassan and Hussein, the Shiite historic and religious martyrs and icons whose names are erected on plagues in Hagia-Sophia. They are the most fit to allow a Temple to be rebuilt on the Temple Mount. Sinem Tezyapar is an executive producer on Turkish Television states:

“As a devout Muslim, I take pleasure when Jews pray to Almighty God, and their praying anywhere in the world, including at the Temple Mount, would be a glad tiding for me as well. As a devout Muslim, it would be a joy for me to see Prophet Solomon’s Temple rebuilt as well. No, you did not hear me wrong. Prophet Solomon’s Temple being rebuilt in all its magnificence and glory would be a great delight for me, as it would be to any Muslim.”

Hagia Sophia is the most important Christian Temple in the East, built in the mid-4th century and then rebuilt during the reign of Justinian the Great. It should be a concern for every Christian on the face of the globe.

And in case people want to argue that Hagia Sophia was not considered the “Temple of God” for Christians, they need to search history. Sophia is the Wisdom of God. This phenomenon has always caused a lot of interpretational difficulties for researchers, resulting for example in the diversity of translations for Hagia Sophia temples in the literature (church/cathedral of the Holy Wisdom, God’s Wisdom, Divine Wisdom or even – incorrectly – St. Sophia).

Nevertheless, the problem to whom, in the mind of the Byzantines themselves, the sanctuaries of that name were dedicated is worth a closer look. It is even more interesting when we take into consideration the cathedral church in Constantinople, the most important temple of the empire and the whole East Christian civilization.


An excellent research by Zofia Brzozowska of the Katedra Historii Bizancjum sheds much light to answer this question. The understanding of the Hagia Sophia cathedral as a temple dedicated to the Son of God is also characteristic of several writers contemporary to the founder of the reconstruction of the Constantinopolitan basilica – Justinian I the Great. Procopius of Caesarea (ca. 500 – ca. 560) repeatedly mentions in his writings that the main metropolitan church was known as the church of the Holy Wisdom, because it was a name recognized at that time by the Byzantines as the most suitable for God as a name of his sanctuary. (3)

An interesting composition, containing a detailed description concerning the construction of the temple of Hagia Sophia, was written probably during the reign of emperor Basil I (867–886). In this work we can discover a number of essential components of East Christian sophiology. First of all, just like in the case of Byzantine writers of the 5th–6th century, the anonymous author says that the Constantinopolitan basilica was (in the eyes of the inhabitants of the empire) a church dedicated to the Only Begotten Son and Word of God. (4)

In the 11th century an attempt to explain the invocation of the Constantinopolitan cathedral an amazing construction to foreigners—was undertaken by a West European author. An anonymous traveler from Tarragona in his description of the capital of Byzantium emphasized that its main temple is dedicated to the Son of God, and the name Hagia Sophia points to one of the attributes of the Creator, the Wisdom of God (Latin Sancta Sapientia), and not – as it was claimed in the West in his times – a saint named Sophia. (5)

A clear statement that Hagia Sophia is a temple dedicated to Jesus, the Son of God can also be found in a medieval Byzantine normative source. A Chrysobull by Emperor Manuel Comnenus, dated 1153, states that the Constantinopolitan cathedral was built in honour of the Saviour. (6) 

Interestingly, the theme also appears on the pages of a 13th century. Source of Slavic provenance (Old Russian), known as the Pilgrim’s Books (Книги Паломник), written by Dobryna Jadrejkovič from Novgorod the Great, also known in the literature under the monastic name (Anthony of Novgorod), who traveled to Constantino- ple between 1200 and 1204. In the itinerary written after the return, he described many Byzantine objects of the capital, including the Hagia Sophia basilica, whose name according to him should be understood as the Temple of Wisdom and Word of God. (7)

In the work dedicated to Theodosius of Tărnovo the author calls the Constantinopolitan Hagia Sophia – a temple of the “Wisdom of God’s Word.” (8)

Needless to say Sophia cathedrals used to be built also in the area of Slavia Orthodoxa. A basilica dedicated to the Wisdom of God in Serdica (Sofia) comes probably from the era of the first Bulgarian state, although a number of researchers believe that it should be dated much earlier – to the 4th cent. At the turn of the 10th and 11th cent., a temple under the same invocation was built in Ohrid and some time later in Sliven. The most spectacular temples of Pre-Mongol Rus’ were also dedicated to the Divine Wisdom. The construction of the Sophia cathedral in the capital of Rus’ – Kiev, began probably in 1037. The temple of the Holy Wisdom in Novgorod the Great was built between 1045 and 1050 (probably in the place of an earlier wooden church under the same invocation, which had been erected as early as in 989). Moreover, in the 1060s foundations for a third Old Russian cathedral of Sophia at Polotsk were being prepared.

But the question about Hagia Sophia in Constantinople looks different. The preserved source material justifies the thesis that in Byzantium, regardless of the era, the cathedral basilica was conceived primarily as a temple dedicated to Christ – the Incarnate Word of God.

Most of the Eastern Church Fathers and later Byzantine writers (Justin the Martyr, Athenagoras of Athens, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Methodius of Olympus, Eusebius of Caesarea, Cyril of Jerusalem, Athanasius of Alexandria, Gregory of Nazianzus, Gregory of Nyssa, Cyril of Alexandria, Theodoret, Atha- nasius the Sinaite, patriarch of Constantinople Germanus, Theodore the Studite, Symeon the Metaphrast, Symeon the New Theologian and Philotheus Coccinus) leave no doubt to the readers that the personified Wisdom of God they meet in the Old Testament, is a symbolic representation of Christ – the Logos before Incarnation.

Therefore, Hagia Sophia, having been dedicated to the Son of God, does qualify as Temple of God since Jesus is God.

In Second Thessalonians, it does not specify which Temple Antichrist sits in, it could be Hagia Sophia or Jerusalem, or even with all the other verses, both.

While we all argue the different biblical points, one thing is for sure, our silence on Hagia Sophia while millions of Muslims surround it like wolves, is shameful.


On top of all of this, Turkey is extending its political influence and is courting Algeria. Erdogan has his eyes on North Africa. Algeria is one of the leading trading partners of Turkey in Africa.

Turkey is one of Algeria’s top ten external trading partners. Trade between the two countries reached almost $5bn. Algeria is the ninth biggest producer of natural gas in the world and has the tenth biggest proven reserves and is the third biggest natural gas supplier for Turkey, after Russia and Iran. Ankara is looking to establish more stable alliances that would withstand the ongoing regional turbulence. Algiers has an easy stepping stone: the common Ottoman past. Since the independence from France in 1962, Algerians have been rediscovering their Ottoman past. Recently, Turkey’s foreign policy efforts in the Middle East and North Africa region. Turkey is now one of the most popular tourist destinations for Algerians, with the number of Algerian tourists doubling by almost 50 percent from 2011 to 2013.

Also, as we argued for two decades, today Turkey is even building strong economic relations with countries with which it shares common culture and historical bonds and affirmed by Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekçi on Sunday. Speaking at the Turkey-Turkmenistan Joint Economic Commission meeting in Ankara, Zeybekç said developing relations with countries like Turkmenistan had been among the foreign policy priorities of Turkey in recent years.
“It is essential to launch a transport network comprising Turkey, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan,” he said.

The activeness of Turkey in Central Asia has grown; and the reason is not only the interests of Turkey, but also that the U.S is trying to influence the region through Ankara. Islamic Central Asia is not a priority for the U.S. European states, prevention of rapprochement with Russia, and other states of the Asian-Pacific Region are priorities.

In all this we see an Antichrist state (Turkey) ally with Iran, North Africa (Libya/Algiers) and the North Quarters of Beth Togarmah.

So how soon is “soon” to see the full force of Antichrist? The next decade will reveal much and the players will be ready, so stay tuned. 

(1) Muslim scholar, Dr. G. F. Haddad, in an article with a blasphemous title, The Best of Creation states: “[There is no] other Prophet [other than Muhammad] or angel-brought-near with whom Allah Most High shared as many of His own Names in the Qur’an as He did with the Prophet. With respect to his foremost name– Muhammad–peace be upon him, consider the poetic verse of Hassan ibn Thabit (RA): ‘And He drew out for him [a name] from His own Name so as to dignify him greatly: The Owner of the Throne is the Glorious [Mahmûd], and this is the Praiseworthy [Muhammad]!’” 127 In other words, the name Muhammad is not a mere name for a man, according to the Qur’an, Allah, whose name is Mahmud, or the Glorious or the Praised One, named Muhammad after Himself. This is quite the claim. This is a further exaltation than the name Yeshua, which in English means Jehovah is our Salvation. Muhammad literally means The Praised One—The Most Praised.

(2) “Julian, who in his third consulship had taken as his colleague Sallustius, the prefect of Gaul, now entered on his fourth year, and by a novel arrangement took as his colleague a private individual; an act of which no one recollected an instance since that of Diocletian and Aristobulus. And although, foreseeing in his anxious mind the various accidents that might happen, he urged on with great diligence all the endless preparations necessary for his expedition, yet distributing his diligence everywhere; and being eager to extend the recollection of his reign by the greatness of his exploits, he proposed to rebuild at a vast expense the once magnificent temple of Jerusalem, which after many deadly contests was with difficulty taken by Vespasian and Titus, who succeeded his father in the conduct of the siege. And he assigned the task to Alypius of Antioch, who had formerly been proprefect of Britain. But though Alypius applied himself vigorously to the work, and though the governor of the province co-operated with him, fearful balls of fire burst forth with continual eruptions close to the foundations, burning several of the workmen and making the spot altogether inaccessible. And thus the very elements, as if by some fate, repelling the attempt, it was laid aside.” (Ammianus Marcellinus, Roman History, 23.1-3, trans. C.D.YONGE)
