Islam, the False Pagan Babylonian Religion, Exposed: “Allah” (Ba’al) is the Pre Arabic Pagan Moon God / Muhammad False Prophet

More on Islam, the Pagan Babylonian cult of death here.

——————————————————————————————————————————-

“The Arabs, before the time of Mohammed, accepted and worshipped, after a fashion, a supreme god called Allah”(Encyclopedia off Islam, I:302, Leiden: E.J. Brill, 1913, Houtsma)

“The name Allah, as the Quran itself is witness, was well known in pre-Islamic Arabia. Indeed, both it and its feminine form, Allat, are found not infrequently among the theophorous names in inscriptions from North Africa”(Islam: Muhammad, and His Religion, New York: The Liberal Arts Press, 1958, p. 85)

The word “Allah” comes from the compound Arabic word, al-ilah. Al is the definite article “the” and ilah is an Arabic word for “god.” It is not a foreign word. It is not even the Syriac word for God. It is pure Arabic.(There is an interesting discussion of the origins of Allah, in “Arabic Lexicographical Miscellanies” by J. Blau in the Journal of Semitic Studies, Vol. XVII, #2, 1972, pp. 173-190)

Neither is Allah a Hebrew or Greek word for God as found in the Bible. Allah is a purely Arabic term used in reference to an Arabian deity. Hastings’ Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics I:326, T & T Clark, states:

‘”Allah” is a proper name, applicable only to their [Arabs'] peculiar God.’

According to the Encyclopedia of Religion:

‘”Allah” is a pre-Islamic name . . . corresponding to the Babylonian Bel’(Encyclopedia of Religion, I:117 Washington DC, Corpus Pub., 1979)

For those who find it hard to believe that Allah was a pagan name for a peculiar pagan Arabian deity in pre-Islamic times, the following quotations may be helpful:

“Allah is found . . . in Arabic inscriptions prior to Islam”(Encyclopedia Britannica, I:643)

“The Arabs, before the time of Mohammed, accepted and worshipped, after a fashion, a supreme god called Allah”(Encyclopedia off Islam, I:302, Leiden: E.J. Brill, 1913, Houtsma)

“Allah was known to the pre-Islamic . . . Arabs; he was one of the Meccan deities”(Encyclopedia off Islam, I:406, ed. Gibb)

“Ilah . . . appears in pre-Islamic poetry . . . By frequency of usage, al-ilah was contracted to Allah, frequently attested to in pre-Islamic poetry”(Encyclopedia off Islam, III:1093, 1971)

“The name Allah goes back before Muhammad”(Encyclopedia of World Mythology and Legend, I:41, Anthony Mercatante, New York, The Facts on File, 1983)

“The origin of this (Allah) goes back to pre-Muslim times. Allah is not a common name meaning “God” (or a “god”), and the Muslim must use another word or form if he wishes to indicate any other than his own peculiar deity”(Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics, I:326, Hastings)

To the testimony of the above standard reference works, we add those of such scholars as Henry Preserved Smith of Harvard University who has stated:

“Allah was already known by name to the Arabs”(The Bible and Islam: or, The Influence of the Old and New Testament on the Religion of Mohammed, New York, Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1897, p. 102)

Dr. Kenneth Cragg, former editor of the prestigious scholarly journal Muslim World and an outstanding modern Western Islamic scholar, whose works are generally published by Oxford University, comments:

“The name Allah is also evident in archeological and literary remains of pre-Islamic Arabia”(The Call of the Minaret, New York: Oxford University Press, 1956, p. 31)

“In recent years I have become increasingly convinced that for an adequate understanding of the career of Muhammad and the origins of Islam great importance must be attached to the existence in Mecca of belief in Allah as a “high god.” In a sense this is a form of paganism, but it is so different from paganism as commonly understood that it deserves separate treatment”(William Montgomery Watt, Muhammad’s Mecca, p. vii. Also see his article, “Belief in a High God in Pre-Islamic Mecca”, Journal of Semitic Studies, Vol. 16, 1971, pp. 35-40)

Caesar Farah in his book on Islam concludes his discussion of the pre-Islamic meaning of Allah by saying:

“There is no reason, therefore, to accept the idea that Allah passed to the Muslims from the Christians and Jews”(Islam: Beliefs and Observations, New York, Barrons, 1987, p. 28)

According to Middle East scholar E.M. Wherry, whose translation of the Quran is still used today, in pre-Islamic times Allah-worship, as well as the worship of Ba-al, were both astral religions in that they involved the worship of the sun, the moon, and the stars(A Comprehensive Commentary on the Quran, Osnabruck: Otto Zeller Verlag, 1973, p. 36)

Astral Religions

In Arabia, the sun god was viewed as a female goddess and the moon as the male god. As has been pointed out by many scholars such as Alfred Guilluame, the moon god was called by various names, one of which was Allah!(Islam, p. 7)

The name Allah was used as the personal name of the moon god, in addition to other titles that could be given to him.

Allah, the moon god, was married to the sun goddess. Together they produced three goddesses who were called “the daughters of Allah.” These three goddesses were called Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat.

The daughters of Allah, along with Allah and the sun goddess were viewed as “high” gods. That is, they were viewed as being at the top of the pantheon of Arabian deities.

“Along with Allah, however, they worshipped a host of lesser gods and “daughters of Al-lah”(Encyclopedia of World Mythology and Legend, I:61)”

Allah – the Moon God

http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/moongod.htm

The Archeology of The Middle East

The religion of Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of “Allah.” The Muslims claim that Allah in pre-Islamic times was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, prophets, and apostles. The issue is thus one of continuity. Was “Allah” the biblical God or a pagan god in Arabia during pre- Islamic times? The Muslim’s claim of continuity is essential to their attempt to convert Jews and Christians for if “Allah” is part of the flow of divine revelation in Scripture, then it is the next step in biblical religion. Thus we should all become Muslims. But, on the other hand, if Allah was a pre- Islamic pagan deity, then its core claim is refuted. Religious claims often fall before the results of hard sciences such as archeology. We can endlessly speculate about the past or go and dig it up and see what the evidence reveals. This is the only way to find out the truth concerning the origins of Allah. As we shall see, the hard evidence demonstrates that the god Allah was a pagan deity. In fact, he was the Moon-god who was married to the sun goddess and the stars were his daughters.

The reader must know that Ismael was a Hebrew.

Archaeologists have uncovered temples to the Moon-god throughout the Middle East. From the mountains of Turkey to the banks of the Nile, the most wide-spread religion of the ancient world was the worship of the Moon-god. In the first literate civilization, the Sumerians have left us thousands of clay tablets in which they described their religious beliefs. As demonstrated by Sjoberg and Hall, the ancient Sumerians worshipped a Moon-god who was called many different names. The most popular names were Nanna, Suen and Asimbabbar. His symbol was the crescent moon. Given the amount of artifacts concerning the worship of this Moon-god, it is clear that this was the dominant religion in Sumeria. The cult of the Moon-god was the most popular religion throughout ancient Mesopotamia. The Assyrians, Babylonians, and the Akkadians took the word Suen and transformed it into the word Sin as their favorite name for the Moon-god. As Prof. Potts pointed out, “Sin is a name essentially Sumerian in origin which had been borrowed by the Semites. “

In ancient Syria and Canna, the Moon-god Sin was usually represented by the moon in its crescent phase. At times the full moon was placed inside the crescent moon to emphasize all the phases of the moon. The sun-goddess was the wife of Sin and the stars were their daughters. For example, Istar was a daughter of Sin. Sacrifices to the Moon-god are described in the Pas Shamra texts. In the Ugaritic texts, the Moon-god was sometimes called Kusuh. In Persia, as well as in Egypt, the Moon- god is depicted on wall murals and on the heads of statues. He was the Judge of men and gods. The Old Testament constantly rebuked the worship of the Moon-god (see: Deut. 4:19;17:3; II Kngs. 21:3,5; 23:5; Jer. 8:2; 19:13; Zeph. 1:5, etc.) When Israel fell into idolatry, it was usually the cult of the Moon-god. As a matter of fact, everywhere in the ancient world, the symbol of the crescent moon can be found on seal impressions, steles, pottery, amulets, clay tablets, cylinders, weights, earrings, necklaces, wall murals, etc. In Tell-el-Obeid, a copper calf was found with a crescent moon on its forehead. An idol with the body of a bull and the head of man has a crescent moon inlaid on its forehead with shells. In Ur, the Stela of Ur-Nammu has the crescent symbol placed at the top of the register of gods because the Moon-god was the head of the gods. Even bread was baked in the form of a crescent as an act of devotion to the Moon-god. The Ur of the Chaldees was so devoted to the Moon-god that it was sometimes called Nannar in tablets from that time period.

A temple of the Moon-god has been excavated in Ur by Sir Leonard Woolley. He dug up many examples of moon worship in Ur and these are displayed in the British Museum to this day. Harran was likewise noted for its devotion to the Moon-god. In the 1950′s a major temple to the Moon-god was excavated at Hazer in Palestine. Two idols of the moon god were found. Each was a stature of a man sitting upon a throne with a crescent moon carved on his chest . The accompanying inscriptions make it clear that these were idols of the Moon-god. Several smaller statues were also found which were identified by their inscriptions as the “daughters” of the Moon-god. What about Arabia? As pointed out by Prof. Coon, “Muslims are notoriously loath to preserve traditions of earlier paganism and like to garble what pre-Islamic history they permit to survive in anachronistic terms.”

During the nineteenth century, Amaud, Halevy and Glaser went to Southern Arabia and dug up thousands of Sabean, Minaean, and Qatabanian inscriptions which were subsequently translated. In the 1940′s, the archeologists G. Caton Thompson and Carleton S. Coon made some amazing discoveries in Arabia. During the 1950′s, Wendell Phillips, W.F. Albright, Richard Bower and others excavated sites at Qataban, Timna, and Marib (the ancient capital of Sheba). Thousands of inscriptions from walls and rocks in Northern Arabia have also been collected. Reliefs and votive bowls used in worship of the “daughters of Allah” have also been discovered. The three daughters, al-Lat, al-Uzza and Manat are sometimes depicted together with Allah the Moon-god represented by a crescent moon above them. The archeological evidence demonstrates that the dominant religion of Arabia was the cult of the Moon-god.

In Old Testament times, Nabonidus (555-539 BC), the last king of Babylon, built Tayma, Arabia as a center of Moon-god worship. Segall stated, “South Arabia’s stellar religion has always been dominated by the Moon-god in various variations.” Many scholars have also noticed that the Moon-god’s name “Sin” is a part of such Arabic words as “Sinai,” the “wilderness of Sin,” etc. When the popularity of the Moon-god waned elsewhere, the Arabs remained true to their conviction that the Moon-god was the greatest of all gods. While they worshipped 360 gods at the Kabah in Mecca, the Moon-god was the chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the Moon-god.

This is what made it the most sacred site of Arabian paganism. In 1944, G. Caton Thompson revealed in her book, The Tombs and Moon Temple of Hureidha, that she had uncovered a temple of the Moon-god in southern Arabia. The symbols of the crescent moon and no less than twenty-one inscriptions with the name Sin were found in this temple. An idol which may be the Moon-god himself was also discovered. This was later confirmed by other well-known archeologists.

The evidence reveals that the temple of the Moon-god was active even in the Christian era. Evidence gathered from both North and South Arabia demonstrate that Moon-god worship was clearly active even in Muhammad’s day and was still the dominant cult. According to numerous inscriptions, while the name of the Moon-god was Sin, his title was al- ilah, i.e. “the deity,” meaning that he was the chief or high god among the gods. As Coon pointed out, “The god Il or Ilah was originally a phase of the Moon God.” The Moon-god was called al- ilah, i.e. the god, which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad’s father and uncle had Allah as part of their names.

The fact that they were given such names by their pagan parents proves that Allah was the title for the Moon-god even in Muhammad’s day. Prof. Coon goes on to say, “Similarly, under Mohammed’s tutelage, the relatively anonymous Ilah, became Al-Ilah, The God, or Allah, the Supreme Being.”

This fact answers the questions, “Why is Allah never defined in the Qur’an? Why did Muhammad assume that the pagan Arabs already knew who Allah was?” Muhammad was raised in the religion of the Moon-god Allah. But he went one step further than his fellow pagan Arabs. While they believed that Allah, i.e. the Moon-god, was the greatest of all gods and the supreme deity in a pantheon of deities, Muhammad decided that Allah was not only the greatest god but the only god.

In effect he said, “Look, you already believe that the Moon-god Allah is the greatest of all gods. All I want you to do is to accept that the idea that he is the only god. I am not taking away the Allah you already worship. I am only taking away his wife and his daughters and all the other gods.” This is seen from the fact that the first point of the Muslim creed is not, “Allah is great” but “Allah is the greatest,” i.e., he is the greatest among the gods. Why would Muhammad say that Allah is the “greatest” except in a polytheistic context? The Arabic word is used to contrast the greater from the lesser. That this is true is seen from the fact that the pagan Arabs never accused Muhammad of preaching a different Allah than the one they already worshipped. This “Allah” was the Moon-god according to the archeological evidence. Muhammad thus attempted to have it both ways. To the pagans, he said that he still believed in the Moon-god Allah. To the Jews and the Christians, he said that Allah was their God too. But both the Jews and the Christians knew better and that is why they rejected his god Allah as a false god.

Al-Kindi, one of the early Christian apologists against Islam, pointed out that Islam and its god Allah did not come from the Bible but from the paganism of the Sabeans. They did not worship the God of the Bible but the Moon-god and his daughters al-Uzza, al-Lat and Manat. Dr. Newman concludes his study of the early Christian-Muslim debates by stating, “Islam proved itself to be…a separate and antagonistic religion which had sprung up from idolatry.” Islamic scholar Caesar Farah concluded “There is no reason, therefore, to accept the idea that Allah passed to the Muslims from the Christians and Jews.” The Arabs worshipped the Moon-god as a supreme deity. But this was not biblical monotheism. While the Moon-god was greater than all other gods and goddesses, this was still a polytheistic pantheon of deities. Now that we have the actual idols of the Moon-god, it is no longer possible to avoid the fact that Allah was a pagan god in pre-Islamic times. Is it any wonder then that the symbol of Islam is the crescent moon? That a crescent moon sits on top of their mosques and minarets? That a crescent moon is found on the flags of Islamic nations? That the Muslims fast during the month which begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon in the sky?

CONCLUSION

The pagan Arabs worshipped the Moon-god Allah by praying toward Mecca several times a day; making a pilgrimage to Mecca; running around the temple of the Moon-god called the Kabah; kissing the black stone; killing an animal in sacrifice to the Moon-god; throwing stones at the devil; fasting for the month which begins and ends with the crescent moon; giving alms to the poor, etc.

The Muslim’s claim that Allah is the God of the Bible and that Islam arose from the religion of the prophets and apostles is refuted by solid, overwhelming archeological evidence. Islam is nothing more than a revival of the ancient Moon-god cult. It has taken the symbols, the rites, the ceremonies, and even the name of its god from the ancient pagan religion of the Moon-god. As such, it is sheer idolatry and must be rejected by all those who follow the Torah and Gospel. moongod.htm

Allah is sin. Often depicted as a wise old man with a long beard, the moon god Sin was one of the most important Babylonian gods. His main temples were situated at Ur and Harran. The moon god “sin” was elevated to the top of the Babylonian pantheon by Nabu-na’id (Nabonidus) in an effort to make Babylonian religion more acceptable to subjects like the Arabians and Arameans. The Arabians esteemed the moon god, but had more difficulty identifying with Marduk, the supreme Babylonian deity associated primarily with the city of Babylon. The god Sin, “The Controller of the Night,” had the crescent moon as his emblem, and the lunar-based calendar, which became the primary religious symbols of Islam, was worshiped in Arabia as AI-Ilah. Mecca became the center of all pagan religions of Arabia before Mohammed. AI-Ilah, the Moon God, was the “Lord of the Ka’aba” (“cube”) which held the pagan black rock idol and was formerly the center of pagan worship, ruling over 360 idols. Lucrative trade routes resulted in meca.

Pagans who lived in Saudi Arabia before Muhammad was born worshiped toward Mecca because Mecca is where their idols were located. Because this pagan worship centered on Mecca was so widespread, a rapid acceptance of Muhammad’s new religion was possible. Thus, Islam is a previously heathen religion modified into a monotheistic form by discarding all the other pagan gods except for Al-Ilah. Al-Ilah simply became Al-lah over time.

Islam still worships a black stone idol as well as Al-Ilah the sin god. Al-Ilah was the pagan Lord of the Ka’aba when Muhammad made up Islam, he just dropped the “i” and name has been simplified to Allah. The Ka’aba black cube in Mecca houses the occult black rock of Allah. It is of course still the center of pagan Islamic worship today. The requirement for a Holy Pilgrimage (hajj) to Mecca, in order to circle the Ka’aba. The site of the black stone idol is to be circled 7 times and kissed. Pilgrims then run to the Wadi Mina to throw stones at the “devil”. Islam incorporates beliefs in jinns which are demons genies, fairies. They believe in spells, magic stones, fetishes, and animistic beliefs (spirits living in inanimate objects). See: Suras 55; 72; 113, 114. These pagan rites are practiced in Islam today.

  1. [...] and it is not through any other god, nor religion; it’s not through Islam and their god Baal (aka, Allah); nor is it through Scientology; or Hinduism; Buddhism; or Hare Krishna; but ONLY through Jesus [...]

  2. Mr. Veith is woefully uninformed about Roman catholicism in my opinion. I do like very much your work on Islam and agree ~ but when it comes to Catholicism I find the disconnect.

    You maybe interested in http://www.catholicleague.org/research/blacklegend.htm

  3. “Neither is Allah a Hebrew or Greek word for God as found in the Bible. Allah is a purely Arabic term used in reference to an Arabian deity. Hastings’ Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics I:326, T & T Clark, states:”

    Proven wrong in the original Hebrew.

    God – Elah: Deut. 32:15, II Chr. 32:15, Neh. 9:17, Ezra. 5:1,11, Ezra. 6:14, Ezra. 7:12,19,21,23, Dan. 2:18,23,28,37,47, Dan. 3:15, Dan. 6:8,13
    Valley of Elah: I Sam. 17:2-3
    God of my fathers – Elah Avahati: Dan. 2:23
    God of gods – Elah Elahin: Dan. 2:47
    God of Jerusalem – Elah Yerushelem: Ezra 7:19
    God of Isreal – Elah Yisreal: Ezra 5:1
    God of Heaven – Elah Shemalya: Ezra 7:23
    Alleluia: Rev. 19:1,3

    It even fits the description they give:
    “The word “Allah” comes from the compound Arabic word, al-ilah. Al is the definite article “the” and ilah is an Arabic word for “god.” It is not a foreign word. It is not even the Syriac word for God. It is pure Arabic.”

    As well their argument refutes itself.
    On one hand they say ‘Allah’ predates the Quran, even going so far as to point out Al-Lat – the Nabatean female diety that corresponds with Hera/Ishatar/Asherah (consort to the lead god). Yet on the other they say ‘Allah’ was not know by the Christians and Jews, when Nabatean Petra was around pre-dating the revelation of the Quran.

    You can’t have your cake and eat it too. :P

    This is only part of what refutes their argument, when the key point is their whole argument rests on Muhammad (pbuh) being exiled from Mecca. Which – proven by the Quran – he was not. He was exiled from Midian, of which no pagan idols were removed from any building, much less the Kaaba.

    The satans that seek to lead astray with falsehood will be paid their due on the Day of Judgment. :)

    Peace.

    • Islam has been extensively exposed has beeing old babylonian pagan worship of the moon god, I rest my case. I am not concerned with “allah” (a fallen angel in disguise) by the way. Will their trully be a judgment day by Almighty GOD to those who will die in their SINS ? Absolutely ! How do we know that ? Here,

      Acts {17:31} Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by [that] man whom he hath ordained; [whereof] he hath given assurance unto all [men,] in that he hath raised him from the dead.

      him = refering to Jesus. Jesus the true & living God (God the Father, God the Son & God the Holy Spirit), these three being one and the same…

      … the same Jesus you Muslims deny by the way. The Qu’ran denies Jesus died on the cross (but another man instead died on His place), therefore the Qu’ran could never, EVER be the word of God because it is simply not historically accurate.

      1 John {2:22} Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. {2:23} Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

      Muslims, I love you because some of you really want to seek the truth and the living God, but you do not know Him. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, period. Wake up !

      John {14:6} Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

      Take care of yourself and your loved ones brother. Peace to you as well, do not let the Devil deceive you.

      The gospel of Jesus = http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/how_to_be_saved.html

  4. The Quran itself refutes this post:

    “And of His signs are the night and the day, the sun and the moon. Bow not yourselves to the sun and moon, but bow yourselves to Allah who created them, if Him you serve.” Surah 41:37

    “If thou askest them, ‘Who created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon?’ they will say, ‘Allah.’ How then are they perverted?” Surah 29:61

    As well, Allah refutes worship of Ba’al:

    “Elias too was one of the Envoys;
    when he said to his people, ‘Will you not be godfearing?
    Do you call on Ba’al, and abandon the Best, the Creator?
    Allah, your Lord, and the Lord of your fathers, the ancients?’” Surah 37:123-126

    I know the teachings of the Bible because I was a Trinitarian Christian before guided to the Truth of Al-Islam.

    To the owner of this blog: You are given reminder and warned of creating falsehood to lead astray. You will be called to account on the Day of Judgment.
    Peace.

  5. The Quran makes clear not to worship the moon or Ba’al. You’ve deleted the comments once, which only proves you are seeking to uphold falsehood.
    You will be called to account for your deeds on the Day of Judgment. Let the Truth stand clear from falsehood, and those who come behind know what is truly within the Quran.

    We are not to worship the sun or moon:
    “And of His signs are the night and the day, the sun and the moon. Bow not yourselves to the sun and moon, but bow yourselves to Allah who created them, if Him you serve.” Surah 41:37

    “If thou askest them, ‘Who created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon?’ they will say, ‘Allah.’ How then are they perverted?” Surah 29:61

    Ba’al is proven as a false idol:
    “Elias too was one of the Envoys; when he said to his people, ‘Will you not be godfearing?
    Do you call on Baal, and abandon the Best, the Creator; Allah, your Lord, and the Lord of your fathers, the ancients?’” Surah 37:123-126

    And as well, I was a Christian for 28 years. I know the falsehood taught from behind the pulpit – the falsehood of Original Sin and the sacrifice on the cross.

    You have made your choice. You cannot say on the Day of Judgment you were not warned nor given reminder. :)
    Peace.

  6. [...] Islam, the False Pagan Babylonian Religion, Exposed: “Allah” (Ba’al) is the Pre Arabic Pagan M… [...]

  7. Allah is satan and mohammed is the tool of satan. All who follow islam are lost for all eternity.

  8. Will Islam rule the world?
    If so, is it ok to be a Muslim instead of a Christian?
    Is Islam in the bible?
     
    The religion of the end time in bible prophecy
    The religion of the end time will be one where the false prophet will deceive the whole world and cause the world to worship the Antichrist by doing miracles such as pulling fire from the sky. This religion already exists but will be made universal by the power given the Antichrist and the false prophet by the devil. The bible doesn’t specifically tells us what that religion will be called, but we can determine what it will be by looking at the facts. The world is pretty much dominated by Christianity and Islam (over half of the worlds population combined). While Hinduism comes in a close third, it doesn’t look like it will matter in the end time.
     
    Christianity today is full of churches proclaiming that all religions worship the same God and therefore we should embrace them. The Catholic church promotes that idea with Interfaith doctrine and goes as far as to state in the Catechism that the Muslims worship the same God as Christianity and therefore will enjoy the same salvation equally. This means that they think it doesn’t matter if you’re a Christian or a Muslim and that you can find salvation through either religion.
     
    The Muslims, on the other hand, have no such belief. In fact, Muslim doctrine teaches that Jesus is just a prophet, not the manifestation of God in the flesh, and that He will return at the end time to teach Christians the Muslim way and convert them. The prophecies of the bible and the Muslim prophecies concerning the Antichrist (the Muslim Mahdi) and the false prophet (the Muslim Jesus) mirror each other but the good guys of Islam are the bad guys of the bible. This is a very good indication that the Antichrist will rise as the Mahdi of Islam and will unite the Christian world with him via the false prophet and create a global Islamic religion. The bible tells us that this end time religion will be forced upon people or they will be killed if they refuse. The Muslim prophecies tell us that the Muslims will kill any who won’t convert to Islam.
    The bible tells us that the world will be fooled by the false prophet performing miracles in the sight of men, like pulling fire from the sky. The false prophet will seem to everyone to have Godly power and will fool everyone into worshiping the Antichrist.
     
    Is Islam really a true religion worshiping the same God as Christianity?
    I had to ask myself this question:  who is the God of Islam?  Is it really the same God that Abraham worshiped as they want us to believe?
     
    It is asserted by Muslims that the Meccan Arabs are descendents of Ishmael, the son of Abraham. They also claim that Ishmael settled in Mecca where he, along with Abraham, built the Kabah and passed on the religion of the true God to his offspring. It is believed that throughout time the Ishmaelites perverted the worship of the true God, not by abandoning their belief in him, but by adding other gods in their worship, thus perverting the religion of the God of their father Ishmael.  It is actually provable that this is not true, as I will show you.
     
    In the Old Testament, near Israel’s beginnings, worship of a false God called Baal began, and consisted of worshiping the heavenly bodies, of which the moon is the largest in the sky.  The Biblical and historical evidence shows that the Moabites worshiped Baal. The pre-Islamic and Muslim sources show (a) that the Meccans took over the idol Hubal from the Moabites and (b) that Allah and Hubal are actually identical.  Thus, whether the Meccans are Ishmaelites or not, the evidence is still strong and sufficient to conclude that Muhammad’s Allah is actually Hubal, i.e., the Baal of the Moabites and thus not the God of the Bible. Muhammad incorporated the characteristics and names of various other gods into his new monotheistic message about Allah, but he apparently started the construction of Allah with Hubal, the chief god of the Meccans.
     
    The pre-Islam pagan Arabs worshipped the Moon-god Allah by praying toward Mecca several times a day; making a pilgrimage to Mecca; running around the temple of the Moon-god called the Kabah; kissing the black stone; killing an animal in sacrifice to the Moon-god; throwing stones at the devil; fasting for the month which begins and ends with the crescent moon; giving alms to the poor, etc.
     
    If you have read the news in recent months, you know that modern day Muslims practice these very rituals.
    The Muslims are worshiping the same false god that people have been worshiping since early times as far back as Israel’s beginnings.
     
    Most importantly, Muslims say you don’t need to believe in Jesus Christ to be saved!  Muslims will admit that Jesus Christ was a true prophet, but deny that He was the Messiah (although some Western Muslims will say He was anointed), they will deny that He was God manifested in the flesh as of the Son of God (John 1:14), and they will deny that He died on the cross and rose again.  Does that make sense?  Absolutely not! That belief cannot be truth because Jesus Christ Himself said He was the Messiah, and said He was the Son of God!
     
    John 4:26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
    John 9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? 37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
     
    That would make Him a false prophet according to the Muslim beliefs!  How twisted is that?  But it’s a lie believed by one and a half billion people.  We absolutely must believe that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, was crucified for our sins and rose again.  This is the gospel!
     
    John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
    John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
    Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
     
     
    There is no salvation in any other name but Jesus!  Not Mohammed, not Buddha; no other name…
     
     
    The word Islam means “submission”.  Not only in the sense of submission to Allah, but in the sense of making everyone submit to the rule of Islam.  Islam is about subduing the world and making it submit.  The Muslims believe that Mohammed is the exemplar of right conduct.  They aspire to be like him in the same manner that Christians aspire to be like Jesus.  Mohammed said to spread, through warfare, the rules of Islam.  Mohammed became increasingly violent during his career and spent 10 years in Medina creating an army to overthrow his homeland, Mecca, after he was ran off by the pagans in 622 AD.  He killed thousands of people and subdued Arabia through war.  Muslims are encouraged to commit acts of heroism in combat.  They are promised that those who kill and are killed will be rewarded with paradise.  This is the basis for suicide bombers.  They believe that since they are killing while they are killed that the sin of suicide is covered by the martyrdom of their action and, as such, they will be rewarded in heaven.  Islam is a religion of political rule, a system of government.  It is not about a personal relationship with Allah, it is about bringing the world under submission to its rule.
     
    The Quran (Koran) was written over time during the life of Mohammed (conveyed or recited by him).  He started as a peaceful man, but as time went on he changed many of his values.  As he became increasingly violent, his writings matched his attitude.  The correct interpretation of the Quran is to take any conflict in doctrine, of which there is a whole lot, and replace an older verse with the latest one, supplanting it’s meaning with the more recent version in a process called abrogation.  The problem is that the Quran is compiled from the longest Sura to the shortest, so it’s nearly impossible to know which conflicting verse to believe or obey.  The Muslims have a whole committee of scholars to interpret the Quran and decide which verses were written first and the succession of them to the last.
     
    If you think Islam is a religion of peace, as they claim, just look at all the wars they are involved in today, in Europe, China, Africa, etc., and the mindset of Muslims as a whole as they chant “Death to Israel, Death to America”, while they are working toward their goal of subduing the world.  Islam is a religion of peace only when they have conquered the world and subjected it to the rule of Islam. Also, if the son of the ruler of Hamas says that Islam has no moderates, then I believe him.
     
    Do they really expect us to believe they worship the same God that Christians do?
     
    The religion of the end time in Islamic prophecy vs the bible
    There is ample evidence that the Islamic religion will be the false religion of the End Time used the by biblical Antichrist. Here’s why I think so:
     
     
    The Islamic/Muslim prophecies are a parallel but opposite mirror of biblical prophecy concerning the End Time. The Muslim good guys are the Bible’s bad guys.
     
     
    The Muslim prophecies listed here are found in the Quran and the Sunnah. Some believe Mohammed was possessed by a demon who gave him these parallel prophecies (Mohammed actually said that he feared he was possessed), but it could simply be that he had a copy of the book of Revelation and patterned this all after the bible so as to look authentic. Personally, I believe he was either possessed or given this information and guided to build the Islamic religion by a demon or the devil himself.
     
     
    Take a look at the following list:
     
     
    Please remember that these Islamic prophecies are not biblical but they show how very deeply the Muslims of the world will be fooled because they mirror so closely what will actually happen, and it will seem as if their prophecies are coming true even though they are supporting the devil and his Antichrist.
    1.Bible: The Antichrist is an unparalleled political, military, and religious leader that will emerge in the last days.
    1.Islam: The Mahdi is an unparalleled political, military, and religious leader that will emerge in the last days.
    2.Bible: the False Prophet is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge in the last days who will support the Antichrist.
    1.Islam: the Muslim Jesus is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge in the last days to support the Mahdi.
    3.Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet together will have a powerful army that will do great damage to the earth in an effort to subdue every nation and dominate the world.
    1.Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will have a powerful army that will attempt to control every nation of the earth and dominate the world.
    4.Bible: The False Prophet is described essentially as a dragon in lamb’s clothing.
    1.Islam: The Muslim Jesus comes bearing the name of the one that the world knows as ‘The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ.” Yet the Muslim Jesus comes to murder all those who do not submit to Islam.
    5.Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet establish a new world order.
    1.Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus establish a new world order.
    6.Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet institute new laws for the whole earth.
    1.Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus institute Islamic law all over the earth.
    7.Bible: The Antichrist is said to “change the times.”
    1.Islam: It is quite certain that if the Mahdi established Islam all over the earth, he would discontinue the use of Saturday and Sunday as the weekend for days of rest but rather Friday, the holy day of Islam. Also, he would most certainly eliminate the Gregorian calendar and replace it with the Islamic calendar used in every Islamic country.
    8.Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will both be powerful religious leaders who will attempt to institute a universal world religion.
    1.Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will institute Islam as the only religion on the earth.
    9.Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will execute anyone who does not submit to their world religion.
    1.Islam: Likewise, the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will execute anyone who does not submit to Islam.
    10.Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will specifically use beheading as the primary means of execution for non-conformists.
    1.Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will use the Islamic practice of beheading for executions.
    11.Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will have a specific agenda to kill as many Jews and Christians as possible.
    1.Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus hate Jews and Christians and will kill as many as possible until only a few are left hiding behind rocks and trees.
    12.Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will attack to conquer and seize Jerusalem (the battle of Armageddon).
    1.Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will attack to reconquer and seize Jerusalem for Islam.
    13.Bible: The Antichrist will set himself up in the Jewish Temple as his seat of authority (the abomination of desolation).
    1.Islam: The Mahdi will establish the Islamic caliphate from Jerusalem.
    14.Bible: The False Prophet is said to do many miracles to deceive as many as possible into supporting the Antichrist.
    1.Islam: The Mahdi himself is said to control the weather and the crops. His face is said to glow. We can also assume that since Jesus is viewed as having been empowered by Allah to work miracles when He was here on earth the first time, He will most likely be expected to continue to do so when He returns.
    15.Bible: The belief at the time of Muhammad (and still believed by some people today) was that the Antichrist is described as riding on a white horse in the Book of Revelation.
    1.Islam: The Mahdi is described as riding on a white horse (ironically in the same verse in Revelation).
    16.Bible: The Antichrist is said to make a peace treaty (with many) with Israel for seven years (the Confirmation of the Covenant).
    1.Islam: The Mahdi is said to make a peace treaty through a Jew (specifically a Levite) for exactly seven years.
    17.Bible: Jesus the Jewish Messiah will return to defend the Jews in Israel from a military attack from a vast coalition of nations led by the Antichrist and the False Prophet (the battle of Armageddon).
    1.Islam: The Dajjal, the Islamic Antichrist, will gain a great Jewish following and claim to be Jesus Christ and fight against the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus.
    18.Bible: The antichrist spirit specifically denies the most unique and central doctrines of Christianity, namely the divinity of Jesus, the incarnation of God in the flesh, and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the Cross.
    1.Islam: Islam doctrinally and spiritually specifically denies the most unique and central doctrines of Christianity, namely the divinity of Jesus, the incarnation of God in the flesh, and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the Cross.
    19.Bible: The primary warning of Jesus and the Apostle Paul was to warn Christians of the abundance of deceit and deception in the last days.
    1.Islam: Islam is perhaps the only religion on earth that practices deceit as one of its tools to assist its own ascendancy. It actually has a specific doctrine which allows and even calls for deception to be used to achieve its desired end.
    20.Bible: From the Bible and history we learn that the final Antichrist empire will be a revived version of the empire that succeeds the Roman Empire (the iron mingled with clay of Daniel 2).
    1.Islam: The empire that succeeded the Roman Empire was the combined Holy Roman Empire in parallel with the Islamic Ottoman Empire.
    21.Bible: When the Antichrist emerges, a system will already exist poised to receive him as a savior and to give allegiance to him.
    1.Islam is already the second largest religion and combined with Christianity constitutes over half of the worlds population. Islam awaits the coming of the Mahdi with universal anticipation. The Catholic church and many Christian churches believe that the Muslims will be saved just like Christianity will be, and believe that they worship the same God as Christianity. It’s a very short step to convert to Islam if that is believed to be the truth.
    We can see that the whole world will be fooled by the false prophet and the Antichrist, including the Muslims. The Muslims will believe it is their Mahdi, while the rest of the world will follow the interfaith movement into believing that being a Muslim is the same as Christianity in that we all worship the same God and therefore will enjoy the same salvation. As stated, the Catholic church has already included Islam as part of God’s people and many Christian churches are following this belief. This means that everyone who is fooled by this will think it’s perfectly ok to convert to Islam.
     
     
    What will the world of the end time look like?
     
     
    The nations of the end time
    The empires of the world from Babylon to today were foretold and since we live in a time where history proves what those prophecies were, we have the unique pleasure of seeing prophecy unfold.
     
    The book of Daniel gives us two symbolic pictures of the end time governments.
    1.In one perspective we see that there will be 4 kingdoms in existence at the end time and they will exist when Jesus returns, conquers them, and sets up His kingdom on the earth. These kingdoms mentioned specifically are Britain, Russia, Germany, and the final government of the New World Order that the Antichrist will rule.
    2.In the other perspective we see that the Medes and the Persians rule after Babylon, then the Greek empire, then the Roman, and finally the Holy Roman / Islamic Ottoman co-empires. Both of these final empires together comprised the total area controlled by the Roman Empire. From the Bible and history we learn that the final Antichrist empire will be a revived version of the empire that succeeds the Roman Empire.
    The bible tells us that this final (divided, co-empire) will be used as the world government of the Antichrist and his false prophet. The Antichrist will bring the Muslim world together, reviving the Ottoman empire, while the false prophet will bring in Europe, reviving the Holy Roman empire, and the two will unite them as one. The bible tells us that the Antichrist will rule the whole world, but it also says that during this last 3.5 years he will be fighting wars as he conquers more and more nations. Not all nations will fall under his rule in so short a time (the area which is now Jordan is one that is specifically mentioned to “escape out of his hand”, among others), but he will rule the last world dominating empire.
    The bible tells us that some of the nations that exist today will exist when Jesus returns and that the Holy Roman / Ottoman Empires will be revived and be united in the New World Order that the Antichrist will use to rule the world.
     
    Islam is predicted in the Fourth Seal of Revelation.
    In Revelation 6:1-8 and Zechariah 6:1-8, we’re given a warning of the spirits that will be controlling the world in the last days. The pale/green horse of Revelation and the grisled and bay horses of Zechariah tell us about the spirit of Islam.
     
    The pale horse went south and Death sat on him and Hell followed him and he was given power to kill with the sword and hunger and the beasts of the world.  The southern hemisphere contains most of the poverty stricken nations.  War, crime, revolution, hunger and beasts of the earth are more prominent in the more backward nations of the third world.  The last 100 years have seen more death than the entire history of man (wars, abortions, etc.)  The passage in Zechariah splits the pale/green horse in two; into the grisled and bay horses.  That makes this prophecy easier to understand in that it has two components: Islam and Death.  A very interesting thing about this horse is that the meaning of the original Greek word is interpreted as “pale” in the King James Bible, but the word chloros (khlo-ros’); also means greenish, or pale green.  This word (chloros) is also used in 3 other places in the bible: Mark 6:39, Revelation 8:7 and Revelation 9:4.  In all three of these other places it was interpreted correctly as green.  This horse was also given power over the fourth part of the earth.  Since we know these horses are spirits, it is very, very interesting that the color of Islam is green (their flags, etc.), and that there are 1.48 billion Muslims (Islam followers) in the world today.  That’s almost exactly one fourth of the world population.  This horse went south; and 96.5% of the world’s Muslims are in the southern hemisphere, in Africa and Southern Asia.  Can Islam be defined as “Death”?  I’ve seen arguments that the terrorists are only the “radicals” and poor Muslims being recruited, but if you look at the history of the men that hijacked the planes on 9/11, they came from middle class and wealthy families.  The attacks that are happening everywhere, the suicide bombings, the masses of Muslims chanting, “Death to Israel, death to America”, are not only the poor and radical, it is the mindset of Islam as a whole.  Look at what happened recently in Palestine.  They knowingly elected a terrorist organization into their government! And, given what we know about Islam and how it will be used by the Antichrist, the term “death” here may be referring to the “second death” of Revelation where those that are not saved come before God on judgment day.
     
    What we’re waiting for in the near future
    The event we’re looking for right now, that could happen very soon, is the Confirmation of the Covenant. The confirmation of the covenant is this: there will be an international agreement to confirm the status of Jerusalem and the permanent borders of Israel. These things are being fought over right now with the Palestinians. The bible says that the Antichrist will confirm the covenant along with many others for 7 years. This event will be the beginning of the last 7 years of Daniels 490 years. It may be hard to identify the Antichrist at that time because he will be just one of many.
    Approximately 8 months (.7 years) after the Confirmation of the Covenant, the Antichrist will begin to take over the world.
     
    The Antichrist and the false prophet will team up around this time.
     
    The Jewish temple will be rebuilt and animal sacrifices will be resumed by the Jews.
     
    Jerusalem will be “surrounded by armies”, which is likely a picture of it being policed by UN and/or other forces to force peace in the Middle East.
     
    In the midst of this last 7 years (three and one half years in), the Antichrist will cause the animal sacrifices being performed in the rebuilt temple to cease, and will cause the “abomination of desolation” by either claiming to be God or acting in the place of God. That is when we will definitely know who he is.
     
    The false prophet will cause the world to worship the Antichrist. This will be made possible by the power given him by the devil himself. He will perform miracles before the world, like pulling fire from the sky.
     
    God’s two witnesses will begin their prophecy at this time. They will not be able to be killed for the whole 3.5 years but will be killed at the very end.
     
    The bible tells us that they (the world) shall say, “peace and safety”. This is the call of the New World Order. The Antichrist will come in the name of peace to take over the world, and the bible says that the people of the world will be thinking they’ve finally made it, reveling and partying, proclaiming that mankind has finally done it and brought peace to the world!
     
    The Antichrist will implement what’s called the mark of the beast. It will very likely be a RFID type of system. They can put a chip under your skin today and they even have a tattoo ink that is RFID capable, so maybe that will be utilized. What’s certain is that this will be forced upon all people and you won’t be able to get a job, buy food, go to the doctor, have a bank account, or pretty much have any way to “buy or sell” unless you submit. This will undoubtedly come with some sort of oath or pledge of allegiance to the Antichrist and his government. It may even mean conversion to Islam. This will also be a superhighway straight to hell. Any person who takes the mark of the beast is condemned by God. It will be a horrible time for the people who worship the one true God, Jesus Christ. This is what is termed as the Great Tribulation.
     
    The Antichrist will “cause craft to prosper”. He will “understand dark sentences”. There will very likely be many people who will start to use dark and evil power to perform sorcery and witchcraft.
     
    So, will Islam rule the world?
     
    According to the prophecies of the bible, I believe it will. If you want more detailed and in-depth information, please go to http://www.prophecyandtruth.com/ and read chapters 7, 8 and 10.
     
    We must be prepared and must not be fooled!
    Please go to http://www.prophecyandtruth.com/ and read chapters 7, 8 and 10.

  9. I am from africa and I totally agree with the owner of this blog. Babylon the Great for me tends to point to the US -the 7th Power that will be ousted by the 8th Power to be headed by the anti-christ. The US must be wary of the “10 horns” who will be bonded by a treaty.

  10. The truth being mohammad set up a monolithic pagan religion with 3 hidden goddesses. Appears all have been deceived.

    Proof:

    1. Al-Uzis is the ancient goddess is represented as the morning star venus. She sits in your crescent moon symbol of Islam. 

    2. Manat is the ancient goddess is representated as the crescent (waning) moon is her symbol which you use in Islam symbol. She is also worshipped as a black stone. This is your al-hajar-al-Aswad at Mecca temple.

    Al-hajar-al-Aswad at the Holy Kaaba you tube video.
    http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCUQtwIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DXw7bCC6voBQ&ei=d6VaT6KlDoOZiQfV84zNCw&usg=AFQjCNGDWERnXEkODaQ3G_yU8ctaWGjsyg

    3. Allat is the ancient goddess is represented as the sun and crest within the sun.

    4. Allah is the superiour moon god who’s companion is Allat they are never apart, and links with the other goddess above.

    Proof of 3 & 4 is used at your beloved Kaaba Temple at Mecca you will see on the entrance of temple gold doors with the Sun and moon (symbols-idols), then once inside the Kaaba, you again see a golden door with the sun (Allat) and moon (Allah), which is then opened and prayed in.

    Inside Video of the Holy Kaaba

    http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=5&ved=0CDMQtwIwBA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DXYNRvK-e1w8&ei=KKRaT-huqJ2IB4PxxaoN&usg=AFQjCNGAH66Y40Hw_nlf26DgEEwRYxvvCQ

    Allah & Allat symbols that should never be there if there is no connection right, and also the star, moon crescent, and black stone. What are the chances of having them all represented.

  11. Much thinking at the moment points to the US as the Great global Satan. At the moment Islam may be viewed with fear by some Christians just due to its sheer vigour. Maybe after 2000 years religions collapse in on themselves and new ones rise from the ashes.

    As in everything the unknowble one only knows.

  12. [...] real, historical look at how the god of Islam came to be (with real archaeological evidence), look here.  This does seem somewhat more likely than the Almighty getting confused or breaking His [...]
