According to Islam we are in the Islamic Year 1433.
Here is a Sermon I did about seven years ago on Xanga and in it are scriptural evidence for an Islamic Antichrist. For the scripture says the
Antichrist will change the calendar. This evidence points to an Islamic Antichrist and False Prophet. I hope you enjoy this. There is another sermon that this goes with really at this link: :http://www.thegoodsamaritancommunitycenter.com/the-antichrist-will-be-the-12th-mhadi-the-false-prophet-an-islamic-man-claiming-he-is-jesus-christ-returned/
This last sermon covers some of the false prophecies of Islam which is kind of interesting.
Now to be quite fair there are other religions that go by different calendars. For example the Coptic Christians at this link offer a calendar conversion:Coptic Calendar Conversion But the issue to consider is the likelyhood of the Coptic Christian forcing their beliefs on the community as a whole. The issue is the likelyhood of the Coptic Christians ruling the earth as an Antichrist entity beheading Christians and Jews. I was say equally no. Here is a link to convert the day and month to Islamic calendar. It is kind of fun and interesting:
Antichrist Will Change Calendar
Did you know the bible teaches us the Antichrist nations will change the calendars Christians use? If we read the prophecies allowing Holy Spirit to wake us to the times in which we live we find some interesting things in the bible. The scripture I am talking about is Daniel 7:25 NIV. Let us read it together.
Daniel 7:25 NIV
He will speak against the most high and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws.
There are only two religions today that change the calendars we use today, the Jews and the Arabs. We know the Antichrist cannot come from the Jewish religion since they make peace with the Jews and come from the nations that surround and threaten the Jewish state of Israel. This only leaves Islam to be the religion of the Antichrist.
Here is an interesting link clearly showing that Islam operates under a different calendar then we do. Here it is:
So, for all you deniers out there that think Islam, is the religion of peace, you are creating division within the body of Christ because of your own ignorance. For it is the Antichrist that will change the calendar attempting to put the world on their calendar. But there is other evidence of Antichrist origins, so let us consider it.
Let us consider more scriptural evidence in the book of Revelation 20:4.
Revelation 20:4 NIV
I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshipped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on his foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Now the first thing we notice here is that the Tribulation Saints will be beheaded by the Antichrist and False Prophet. This means that this method of punishment to the Tribulation Saints will be used against them by both the Antichrist and the False Prophet and the nations they come from. This also means that the nations the Antichrist and False Prophet are leaders of will accept culturally this form of punishment for those that do not follow the same religion as they do. This also means that the time right before tribulation starts will be a time in which this same religion culturally accepts the beheading of people. So let us think of what people group on earth beheads Christians and Jews. The reason I say Christians and Jews is that is the exact make up of the group scripture calls the Tribulation Saints. the only religion in the world that accepts this culturally today are the Islamic Nations. The Antichrist and False Prophet will come from Islam. But there is more evidence to consider on this matter and let us consider this also. We must consider the definition of Antichrist given by the first great Evangelist who was also an Apostle, Apostle John. Lets read what John says in 1st John 2:18-25. lets read it and awaken to who and where the Antichrist will come from in our generation.
1st John 2:18-25 NIV
Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.They went out from us, but they really did not belong to us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
But you have anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the Antichrist-he who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.
When we read this 1st letter from Apostle John reminds us this defines the Antichrist in the last hour. This last hour is a period of 41 years and 8 months according to the Prophecy by the Apostle Peter in his 2nd letter to the Body of Christ, lets read it.
2nd Peter 3:8 NIV
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: with the Lord a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness.
According to Peter concerning the 2nd coming promise a day is like a 1000 years. This means an hour is like 41.66 years. This is arrived at this by dividing 1000 years by 24 hours coming to 41.66 years is equal to one hour. This hour is the same hour of authority given by God to the Antichrist nations, Revelation 17:12. Lets read it:
Revelation 17:12 NIV
12″The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings alongside the Beast. 13 They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the Beast. 14 They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is the Lord of lords and King of kings-and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
15 Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 16 The Beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the Beast their power to rule, until god’s words are fulfilled. 18 The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.”
We can see in verse 12 that both the Beast and the kings are given the same authority from God. Verse 13 shows that they march like a cult of followers that never challenge the authority of their dictator. Verse 14 says they will make war against Jesus Christ and all the followers of Jesus Christ. Christ is the Lamb. Verses 15 and 16 say the Prostitute and the Beast are two separate entities. In other words the Prostitute is NOT the Beast. I repeat the Prostitute is NOT the Beast. The Prostitute ride the Beast and steers the Beast but is NOT the Beast. This is also indicated in verse 16 where it says the Beast hates the Prostitute also indicating they are separate entities. verse 16 also says towards the end that the Beast will burn the Prostitute with fire. This also seems to be the same plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that kills 1/3rd of all mankind as described in Revelation 9:18, after the demonic Angels were released to do their destruction who were chained at the Euphrates River, Revelation 9:14. This destruction of the Prostitute, by the Beast, is also described by Revelation 18:1-24 as something that occurs in one day and one hour. It is also described as something the Prostitute has done to another country before, as a double portion from her own cup of Fire, smoke and sulfur, Revelation 18:6-8.
So it is clear from scripture the Beast and Prostitute are different entities, the Beast defeats the Prostitute with fire, smoke and sulfur in one hour, in a double portion, four nukes minimum. So the Antichrist and False Prophet will rise through Islam. The Antichrist will be the 12th Mahdi all of Islam is waiting for. The 12th Mahdi’s prophesied also Islamic assistant will be Isa (sic) Jesus Christ that Islam believes will return again as a man, to say he made a mistake and is not the Son of God and that God is NOT his Father. This is Islamic prophecy in complete fulfillment of the Apostle Johns prophecy of the definition of Antichrist, 1st John 2:18-25. We also see support of this in Islams own words on the Dome of the Rock. Lets look, here it is: http://www.thegoodsamaritancommunitycenter.com/antichrist-defined-by-dome-of-rock-islamic-inscriptions/
