When The Beast Arrives
The most common term for the Empire of Antichrist in the book of Revelation is “beast” where it appears some 36 times. Revelation picks up the term from Daniel 7 where the prophet Daniel uses it to portray the Gentile empires that would follow Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonian Empire.
Thus far in our studies of the Empire of Antichrist we have determined that the precise identity of the beast is the revived Ottoman Caliphate that fulfills Revelation 17:9-11 as Satan’s 8th and final empire.
What will the beast be like?
When the Caliphate returns after being dormant for 100 years, it may best be described as “ISIS on Steroids” except this time around, when the Jihad conquering begins in the Tribulation, the Ottoman Islamic State will be led by the unholy trinity of Satan, Antichrist and the False Prophet not Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self proclaimed leader of the ISIS Caliphate.
The UNHOLY TRINITY is described as follows,
13 And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs; 14 for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty.
According to Daniel and Revelation the beast is unstoppable! Antichrist and his forces who will be powered by the enemy become so overwhelming they never experience defeat until crushed by Jesus at His Second Coming.
During the unstoppable wars in the Tribulation, the Ottoman Caliphate’s methodology will not have changed since its barbaric 500 year rule from 1453 to 1922.
The Ottoman rule began with genocide against the Romans in 1453 when they slaughtered 10’s of 1,000’s in it’s conquest of Constantinople and the Ottoman rule ended with genocide of the 1-million Armenian’s in the waning days of WWI. The Islamic Caliphate was purely satanic then and will be 7 times worse in the Tribulation!
The horrors the world will soon face is beyond comprehension as Antichrist assaults one nation after another beginning in the Middle East using hatred, enmity, rape, servitude, ethnic cleansing, jihad and genocide.
Islam is NOT the “religion of peace” as Obama/Biden and George Bush would falsely have us believe. That’s a sad attempt to cover the bloodshed commanded by the Quran.
Revelation 17 coins the religious system of Islam as the “MOTHER OF HARLOTS” which is released under the sovereignty of God to set up mankind’s judgment and fulfill Jesus’ prophecy in Mt. 24:21 of the worst period in history.
As a reminder of it’s evil nature, we see all these features prominently displayed in the genocide taking place in Africa today.
While much of the church thinks Antichrist is a man of peace who will rise from Europe, the spirit of Antichrist is already here on full display in the theatres like the Middle East and North Africa. And it’s not pretty.

So Why Study the Empire of Antichrist? What Difference Does it Make? 3 Reasons Why!
Why it is Beneficial to study the meanings behind the 7 “beast images” and the Empire of Antichrist and the various heads and 10 horns found throughout Scripture?
We offer at least three reasons why it is beneficial to study the meanings and discover the proper interpretations of the main players in the end times and their geo-political trends for today.
First, these images give Bible-studying Christians an ability to accurately determine the “season” of the age in which we are living in right now.
For example, were Jews to study Daniel and accept the book of Revelation also as inspired Scripture, they would not be so blind to the coming holocaust of the Tribulation spoken about so vividly in Daniel.
The Jewish people are living on the verge of imminent disaster but an understanding of what the Word says of the last days may be all it takes for some to accept Jesus as their Messiah.
And an understanding of these topics better prepares the Christian to identify the “prophetic season.”
Second, a proper understanding of the beasts provides a bulwark against deception.
God’s clash with Antichrist and the beast is the major theme in the Book of Revelation and the beast’s blasphemous religious system led by the Quran and the enforcement of Sharia is its driving force.
Believers around the world need to wake up to the fact that Islam is also the most dangerous threat to the church today. One only needs to travel to the Middle East and North Africa to see for themselves. Where are all the Christians? Where are Christianity’s historic cultural sights? The slaughter is increasing!
The Last Days are characterized as deceptive and as a trap, and expressly so the last-day ruler and the Dragon (Satan). This time is truly treacherous. Our enemy is the father of lies and deception (John 8:44).
“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie.”
2 Thessalonians 2:9
We are convinced that those deception times are already upon us today. Is Christendom ready? Are you?
And Third, not only is Turkey and the 10 kings relevant to our time today, but also Satan’s 7 Empires.
The visions of the world’s 7 empires apply to us today. How so?
All 7 of them, along with the 10 kings, will be in existence and on the world scene during the Last Days when Christ returns. That means they are here now and already rising to their destiny to become part of the beast. The prophet Daniel says that it will be,
“In the time of those kings, that the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed”
This gives us all the more reason to sit up and be “on watch” of the movements surrounding Turkey, Syria. Iraq, Iran and Israel and the rapidly developing events of the Middle East before it becomes the “missile-east” in the Tribulation!
These are the days when our generation should be plugged in and watching as never before. Knowing and understanding the aspects of the Beast Empire gives believers stability in the last days.
God knew the relevance of Turkey, and how the accompanying geo-political events surrounding it’s rise would become front and center before the Rapture.
And the Lord knew the church would need discernment for interpreting the developing events to avoid confusion. So the Lord graciously gave us His prophetic Word to point us in the right direction.
Those who aren’t paying attention miss this connection and walk blindly through the end times and therefore will find themselves more vulnerable to deception.
The Colorado grocery store attack resumes the familiar pattern of jihad attacks that were rampant during Obama-Biden years but absent during the Trump years!
The Jihadi’s Are Returning
We grew numb to the almost constant gun and knife attacks conducted by young male adherents to the Islamic faith under the Obama-Biden administration from 2008 to 2016.
There was Fort Hood, Texas [13 dead 30 injured], Chattanooga Naval recruiting station [five dead], San Bernardino office Christmas party [14 dead], the Orlando Pulse Nightclub [49 dead], Ohio State University car and knife attack [one dead and 11 injured], the Crossroads Mall stabbing attack in St. Cloud, Minnesota [10 injured], the New York and New Jersey pipe bomb attacks [31 injured], the Boston Marathon attack that killed three and injured hundreds, and the list goes on with many more stabbings and shootings too numerous to list, all carried out by American jihadists.
Almost all of these jihadists were either born overseas or the sons of parents born overseas and allowed into this country with little to no vetting under LEGAL immigration programs.
Then along comes Trump and the jihadist attacks suddenly stopped.
I’m aware of only one jihad attack on American soil during Trump’s four years in office, and that was in December 2019 at the Pensacola, Florida, Naval Air Station [three killed].
Biden is in office two months and …. Here we go again. Brace yourself for the return of the jihadis.
Ahmad al-Issa, a native of Syria, entered a Kosher-friendly grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, on Monday where he shot and killed 10 people, all white Christians and Jews. Mr. Issa, 21, had reportedly pledged his allegiance to ISIS and had considered shooting up a Trump rally. He had also used his Facebook page, immediately taken down by the FBI of course, to rail against Trump’s travel ban on a handful of Muslim-majority countries.
Most mainstream media accounts of Monday’s attack ignore the fact that Issa is a Syrian migrant and fail to report that his attack is the first of its kind [mass murder of more than three Americans by a Muslim migrant] in over four years.
This report from CBS is typical. According to CBS, Issa is just your average American white guy from Arvada, Colorado, and some of his friends say he may have had mental health issues. Nothing more to see here folks, just a local nut job, end of story, time for more gun control. That’s the narrative coming out of the Biden White House and supported by the state-sponsored mainstream media, which is looking more like Pravda every day.
We better brace ourselves as this may be the first of many jihadist attacks under the Biden regime.
Because we know the track record, the pattern, that was set during the eight years in which Biden and his boss Obama ran the country. Their weakness on the Islamic issue – no, it’s more than just weakness it’s the outright pandering to and favoring of Islam over all other religions – invites these types of attacks.
Trump showed strength on this issue and the killing stopped. The last thing the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the umbrella organization over almost all of the major Muslim groups in the U.S., wanted was to give Trump fodder to take stronger action against the Brotherhood’s vast network of operations in the U.S.
The Obama-Biden administration scrubbed all negative references to Islam from FBI and Homeland Security training manuals starting in 2011.
Brilliant patriots inside the government who knew how to defend America against this menace – people like Phil Haney, John Guandolo and Steve Coughlin – were rooted out of the government.
This is a story you won’t find in the lying mainstream media. They want you to forget all of the American bodies that piled up as a result of jihadist attacks under Obama-Biden and their pandering to Islamic radicals. With Biden back in the Whitehouse as the puppet master for Obama 3.0, the Jihadi’s are coming back!
TRUMP’S LAUNCH OF THE ABRAHAM ACCORDS CONTINUES TO HAVE A PROFOUND EFFECT WITH MORE AND MORE MUSLIMS ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST WARMING TO THE IDEA OF A THIRD JEWISH TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM
Muslim’s Supporting Israel’s Rights To Build the Temple
Tom Nissani, head of the Temple Heritage Foundation, told Arutz 7 this era is a golden opportunity. “It is becoming increasingly clear that the main obstacle – the Temple Mount – is in our hands,” he said.
“This is a historic opportunity to expel the hostile, Muslim Waqf control from the Temple Mount and transfer it to full Israeli management that will allow full freedom of access and religion to the mountain in cooperation with the Emirates, Saudis and Moroccans, Jews and non-Jews who will attain shared goals.”
Last week on Twitter, Saudis conducted a campaign promoting Islam’s true holy sites, Mecca and Medina, while downplaying the importance of Jerusalem in the religion of Islam. There is a growing excitement in the Middle East right now, thanks to the Abraham Accords, for a rebuilt Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. And the best part? Muslims are calling for it!
“And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.”
It is a fact of Bible prophecy that there will be a rebuilt Third Jewish Temple during the time of “Jacob’s Trouble” in Jerusalem after the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church takes place.
We see this in multiple places in both the Old and New Testaments. The Jewish Temple will be rebuilt including the renewal of animal sacrifices for the purpose of symbolically showing that Jesus is the Lamb of God.
In the middle of the Tribulation, the armies of Antichrist, will take possession of the Temple as Jesus described in Matthew 24:15.
In departure from the Palestinian narrative, the Saudis have begun to recognize a Jewish connection to the Temple Mount.
This developing story of Muslim nations showing favor to Israel’s historic right to the Temple Mount is strong evidence for the fast approaching Tribulation. Buckle your seatbelts as the church’s flight to heaven may be getting ready to lift off!
FROM ISRAEL TODAY: One of the more viral tweets was posted by Saudi cartoonist Fahd al-Jabiri, who wrote that “the direction of the prayers of the Jews is not important to us, what is important to us is only our homeland.” By referencing the “direction of the prayers of the Jews,” al-Jabiri implicitly recognized the Jewish connection to the Temple Mount, thus contradicting the Palestinian narrative on the matter.
An English-language tweet by a man from Morocco named Ibtassam really got people heated when he not only emphasized that the Temple Mount is of no particular importance to Muslims like himself, but then went on to express his hope that the Third Jewish Temple will soon be built there. See below.
Dear brothers and sisters, Join the Saudi hashtag “قبلة_اليهود_لاتعني_لنا#”. This recent Saudi twitter movement believes that there is no importance of the temple mount to Muslims, and the waiting for the [Jewish] third temple. A new era, one of peace is coming. #قبلة_اليهود_لاتعني_لنا
Get Ready for the Star Spangled Shariah in America as our enemies ban together. The Muslim group C.A.I.R. has now joined with Black Lives Matter calling for Islamic Revolution. Once again, we see the true, Anti-America and Anti-Israel colors of Black Lives Matter as they publicly announce their alignment with radical and pro-Muslim Brotherhood, C.A.I.R.
Nihad Awad, director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), announcing they are joining with Black Lives Matter to work together to bring down America.
Awad is the director of CAIR, the largest pro-Muslim organization in the United States. C.A.I.R. is subtle, dangerous and has successfully infiltrated both houses of the U.S. Congress and the previous administration. The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which enjoyed a cozy relationship with President Obama for 8 years, announced they are joining with #BlackLivesMatter and calling for revolution and stopping the re-election of President Trump. In 2007 CAIR was listed as an “Un-indicted, Co-conspirator” in the terror trial of the “ground-zero,” Holy Land Foundation. CAIR serves Allah like the point on the Islamic spear into the heart of America and use their deep pockets to conspire against America. In his recent speech about aligning with Black Lives Matter, Awad said, “Muslims are the new black people of America, you are being denied rights, you are being denied the American Dream… If we don’t stand, you will see Muslims murdered in the streets. We are the community that staged a revolution around the world.. why can’t we do that in America?” “We are the children of Muhammad… YOU KNOW WHAT YOU SHOULD DO… if we do it, Allah has promised us the same victories as those who came before us.” CAIR was one of 82 groups designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates (UAE), placing it in the company of Al Qaeda, Islamic State and other radical groups. Despite CAIR being directly linked to the terrorist group Hamas, it held dozens of meetings with the Obama Administration and will return if Joe Biden is elected. Even with their, “hate America first” ideology and radical Islamist associations, CAIR continues to be portrayed by mainstream media in a positive light as an innocent, pro-Muslim organization. But don’t be fooled! The head of CAIR said that Muslims could comprise the swing vote in the presidential elections if 1 million of them registered to vote, as he urged them to turn mosques into polling stations.
Muslims plan to make their voices heard at the polls… and so should Christians. Pray For America in 2020!
