Our Messiah is Their Antichrist And Their Antichrist is Our Messiah

o we've seen that Islam's Messiah is identical to the Biblical Antichrist and it gets even worse, as a Muslim, I was also taught that the man who Christians believe is the Messiah-the one that will return from heaven to defend the nation of Israel-is the Antichrist of Islam's eschatology. The Antichrist is known as ad-Daj'al who claims to be the divine Messiah and will fight on the side of the Jews. We have seen how Islam's definition of Antichrist includes his leading 70,000 Jews and Christians into a battle with Isa, the Muslim Jesus who will kill the Antichrist in Lud. Indeed, Satan did not leave any ground uncovered. For even as Christians are repeatedly warned not to fall for false prophets and false messiahs, so also have Muslims been warned not to fall for the "deceptive" powers of the Dajjal. He is said to be a great deceiver who will have miraculous powers and who will temporarily hold power over the whole earth: "The Prophet was warning us that in the Last-Days there would be someone who would deceive all of humanity. The Dajjal will possess power over this world. Thus, Muslims must be careful not to have the love of the world in their hearts so they won't leave their religion and follow Him. He will be able to heal the sick by wiping his hand on them, like Jesus did, but with this deceit the Dajjal will lead people down the path to hell. Thus the Dajjal is the false Messiah, or Anti-Christ (Massih ad-Dajjal). He will pretend to be the Messiah, and deceive people by showing them amazing powers."lsO "the Dajjal will say to a Bedouin Arab, 'what will you think if I bring your father and mother back to life for you? Will you bear witness that I am your lord?' The Bedouin will say, 'Yes.' So two devils will assume the appearance of his father and mother, and say, '0 my son, follow him for he is your lord.'"181 The Dajjal's deceptive signs are for the purpose of leading people into believing that he is actually their "lord." Muslim apologist, Abu Ameenah Bilal Phillips said of the Dajjal that he "will claim to be divine."ls2 Muslim scholars universally agree with Phillips. As result of the fact that the Dajjal is, according to Islamic tradition, the false Jewish Messiah who claims to be God, Muslims believe that the Dajjal will thus claim to be both Jesus Christ by name and God Almighty. As a Muslim, I was always taught that the Dajjal would be Jewish. If you go to the Islamic bookstores, you will find dozens of books warning Muslims about the coming evil

49 - Our Messiah is Their Antichrist And Their Antichrist is Our Messiah

Jewish Antichrist. Emergence of the Dajial, Thc/cwlish Kit18 by Matloob Ahmed Qasmi is a big seller. Imam Sheikh [brahim Madhi of the Palestinian Authority articulated the Islamic perspective regarding the expectation of the Jewish people quite well in one of his sermons: "The Jews await the false Jewish Messiah, while we await with Allah's help ...the Mahdi and Jesus, peace be upon him. Jesus' pure hands will murder the false Jewish messiah. Where? In the city of Lod, in Palestine. Palestine will be, as it Mias in the past, a graveyard for tlie 'invaders.'"lH~ Even many proclaiming Palestinian Christians like Samuel Shahid says of the Dajjal that he will be "the embodiment of the Jewish hope and longing. The bulk of his army is recruited from the J e w ~ . The " ~ sad ~ thing is that many Christians in the West believe that the Antichrist is a Jew. The real Jesus of the Bible however, will indeed come as a divine defender of lsrael and her people as Israel's spiritual children, the Christians. We can see that Satan's strategy in blinding the minds of the Muslims in order that when the realJesus returns, the Muslims will already have been prepared to reject him as the great deceiver and false Jewish Messiah. At least six hundred years before Islanl ever existed, the Jewish Prophets and the Jewish Apostles described the event of Jesus returning to Israel, defeating her enemies and finally gaining full acceptance among the Jewish people: "In that day I (The Lord) will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem. And 1 will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for hirn as orie mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son" (Zechariah 12:lO). "And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: 'The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob"' (Romans 11:26). When Jesus returns, "to destroy all the nations that attackJerusalen~," he will be physically present in Israel. At this time, it is said that those Jews who are alive in Israel will realize that He is "the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him." Thus the ackriowledgement of Jesus as the genuine Jewish Messiah and divine Savior will fill their hearts and, "so all Israel will be saved." But this will only serve to confirm the suspicions of the Muslims. This will be proof that he is the Uaijal! Muslirns are expecting Jews to acknowledge the Ilaijal as the divine Jewish Messiah, thus in the Islamic mind, the Jesus of Biblical tradition will fulfill the three most primary Islamic expectations of the Dajial. Clearly, these traditions will be used by Satan, not only to preempt the Muslims of the earth from receiving the real Jesus when He comes, but literally to empower them to attack Him.
