When the islamic terror attacks took place earlier this year in France and Denmark, the immediate effects were the increasing of anti-terror and electronic surveillance measures by many of the western nations. However whilst the focus at large has been the political, what about the spiritual philosophy that dictates the agenda of militant Islam?
And why do millions of Muslims across the world believe that the recent death of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is paving the way for the immediate appearance of the 12th Imam Madhi, the spiritual and political leader that the Iranian government has been yearning for? Find out now!
The Imprint of the Arabs Across World History
One of the most incredible insights regarding ancient world history is the fact that the Middle East and Arab nations have their imprint across all of the previous 4 ancient world empires. When Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon had a dream about a massive statue composed of 4 different elements, the Bible describes how the prophet Daniel was able to interpret the dream which had troubled the King. A King so troubled that he was putting to death his sages and astrologers who had been unable to tell him what he dreamt about and then provide the interpretation.
In Daniel 2 we see that according to the revelation given to Daniel about the meaning of the Kings dream, the head of gold represented the Kingdom of Babylon which Nebuchadnezzar was ruling at the time. However his reign was to soon come to and end as the arms and chest of silver which was representative of the Medo-Persians, would then succeed Babylon as the next world empire. The belly of bronze then referred to the coming of the Grecian empire which would rise during the demise of the Medo-Persian empire. The Grecian empire’s reign would then be succeeded by the legs of iron which was the age of pagan Rome and the Caesars which rose to prominence in the run up to the first coming of Jesus Christ.
The areas covered by the old Babylonian empire, the Medo-Persian Empire, the Grecian Empire and the Roman Empire would have today covered the vicinity of the middle east eastward up to the boundaries of India, southward down into North Africa and westward into Europe.
The Roman Empire whilst predominantly ruled from Rome had captured the trading routes of the Middle East by conquering the Middle East and North Africa. Furthermore, when Rome transitioned from Pagan Rome to Papal Rome the empire then eventually split into 2 halves. The Western European half and the Eastern Byzantine half with the Byzantine empire being predominantly Eastern European and Middle Eastern nations.
Rome’s Split Personality – European and Byzantine
At Rema Marketing we have always been supportive of a revival of the Roman Empire during the end times, because of the fact that the closing piece of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream is focused on the ten toes of iron and clay which succeed the legs of iron. Bible prophecy commentators are divided on what the ten toes of iron and clay represent. Without becoming too dogmatic about what we believe, the one thing it would be hard to dispute is that there will be a revival of Rome because the component of iron is mentioned as being in existence during the final form of the statue (the 10 toes). In regards to what the clay represents and the various theories, they are at best conjecture because clay was never part of the earlier components of the statue so we have no frame of reference as to what the clay symbolizes in terms of regions.
Now the debate about the revival of the Roman Empire takes two sides.
Some believe that this revival of the Roman Empire is fulfilled within the infrastructure of the European Union and its plans to develop into a fully centralized United States of Europe.
However others believe that because the ancient roman empire was as strongly Byzantine as it was European that we should not eliminate the possibility that the ten toes could also include nations from the Byzantine portion of the old Roman empire; essentially from the Arab nations of the Middle East.
Now what’s interesting is that 7 years ago, the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) previously known as Euromed was a multilateral partnership that encompassed 43 countries from Europe and the Mediterranean Basin: the 27 member states of the European Union and 16 Mediterranean partner countries from North Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans. It was created in July 2008 as a re-launched Euro- Mediterranean Partnership (the Barcelona Process), when a plan to create an autonomous Mediterranean Union was dropped. UfM was tasked with the aim of promoting stability and prosperity throughout the Mediterranean region.
The framework was sponsored and driven by the European Union (EU) and was proposed to 16 of the EU’s closest neighbours – Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Moldova, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia and Ukraine.
See the map to the right. The countries in dark brown represent these 16 nations. Notice anything about these 16 neighbours? If you didn’t know, they are all BYZANTINE countries. The European Union (in dark blue) is seeking to create a union with Byzantine countries. If there is ever proof you are seeking for the revival of the Roman Empire this is it because it will re-create a union consisting of the same geographical boundaries that ancient Rome controlled.
Islamic Prophecy and the Quest To Rule The World
We have previously made reference to the fact that the Islamic world have a view in which they perceive political Zionism and freemasonry to be the channels of the Antichrist. For many research groups such as Rema Marketing, elements of this belief system are consistent with our understanding of the new world order concept and share a close similarity with our biblical understanding of the end times.
However where Islam deviates from the Bible is their belief in the role of 2 coming end time figures that they believe will appear during the end times to restore Islam as the world’s dominant empire, in which Islam will be enforced on the world as the true religion. One of these figures is someone known as the Al-Madhi, or the promised one, who will appear in the end times to unite the various factions of Islam and lead a war to recapture Jerusalem.
Though the concept of the Mahdi is common to all branches of Islam, there is far more emphasis and importance attributed to his coming, in the Shia sect as opposed to the majority Sunni branch. It is in the Shia Islam section that we find the most heightened state of expectation for the imminent arrival of Imam Mahdi. Though Shiites make up around 15% of total Muslim population worldwide, the proportion is far higher in the Middle East where they make up over a third of the total.
Two important countries where Shiites make up the majority are Iran and Iraq. It is an interesting fact to note that in Iran, the countries religious (Ayotollah) and political leadership (president) see themselves as temporary stand in for the coming Imam Mahdi. Ayotollah literally means ‘place holder’ and the former President of Iran, Mahmoud Armhedhinajad, is a firm believer in the imminent arrival of Imam Mahdi. Almost everyone of his major speeches as president made references to the Mahdi and he has even said that he expects his arrival within a matter of a few years.
Not only do the Muslims believe in the coming of the Madhi but they also believe in the coming of Jesus Christ. According to Islamic tradition, the Madhi will prepare the the way for Jesus (Esa) who will have complete world control after the death of the Madhi and will reign for 40 years before completing his ministry, dying and being buried in Medina next to Mohammed.
The Death of King Abdullah – A Sign?
And here is where it gets really interesting! The death of King Abdullah in Saudi Arabia earlier this year has opened up a prophecy from Iran of the coming Madhi and a film called “The Coming is Upon Us”. Some Shiite Muslims have long believed, based on Islamic prophecies, that Abdullah’s death would set off a chain of events that would destabilize Saudi Arabia and culminate in the rise of Imam Mahdi—the messianic figure of Islamic eschatology.
The Hadith (the tradition of Islamic prophecy) quotes Mohammed discussing when that reappearance would be:
“On doomsday, a man who is carrying the name of an animal ascends to the throne, after which a man named Abdullah comes to the power. Whoever informs me of his death, I will inform him of the rise [of Mahdi]. After Abdullah passes away, for several days and months, the government will appear” (Ghaybat Al-Tusi).
Abdullah’s predecessor, King Fahd, is said to have carried “the name of an animal” since one meaning of Fahd is related to the word “cheetah.” That would leave King Abdullah as the ruler that reigns before Mahdi.
A growing section of Christian researchers believe that the Madhi and Islamic Jesus share striking characteristics with the the Antichrist and False Prophet prophesied in the Bible in Revelation 13. Because of this presumed link, from their perspective it raises the profile of Islam in the end times. This growing group of researchers includes the likes of Chuck Missler, Joel Richardson, Walid Shoebat, Perry Stone, Joe Van Koevering and others who are championing the belief that we need to be closely looking at the Byzantine revival of Arab nations much more than previous generations.
The “Islamic Beast Rising” project is about understanding the position and premise of those who hold to it as they provide some fascinating insights about the role of Islam in the end times. Obviously there are others who feel very strongly that Islam is being positioned in a way that is not entirely correct which makes this a fascinating debate as you hear the most renowned and respected bible prophecy experts share their views regarding Islam and the end times. This project is designed to provide you the arguments for and against so you can make up your mind.
AL MADHI – IN THE SHADOWS (5 HOURS): The barbaric crusades for control of Jerusalem during the medieval era have still left open wounds in terms of reconciliation between Islam and Christianity, even now in the twenty first century. Islam claims that there is a secret agenda to undermine its position in the world as a leading exporter of oil. The Western World believes that true world peace cannot be achieved until the Israel – Palestinian crisis has been resolved. Jerusalem is becoming the burdensome stone as prophesied by Zechariah. In Al Madhi – In the Shadows you will be shown how Islam is trying to revive its prophesied Islamic Caliphate in the Middle-East, which some believe perfectly fulfils the role of the Biblical Empire of the Beast. How is Islam planning to create a New Islamic World Order, through Global Jihad, which they believe will begin with the conquering of Jerusalem? These documentaries will help you understand why some believe that the Mahdi and the Antichrist may actually be one and the same and that the returning “Jesus” (Isa) of Islamic eschatology is quite similar to the Christian “false prophet,” who will, in fact serve the Antichrist in the conquest and destruction of Israel. Presenting himself to the world as a non-divine “Jesus” who is subservient to Allah and his Mahdi. Researchers who hold to this position believe that that the Mahdi will re-establish the Islamic Ottoman Empire, which was essentially built on the foundation of the Orthodox Christian Byzantine Empire. This fascinating study also cannot be completed without a really intriguing debate regarding the case for and against an islamic antichrist involves a panel of 11 bible prophecy experts. Literally, fascinating documentaries.
OPERATION TROJAN HORSE (5 HOURS): This has to rank as probably the best documentary ever on the secret plan for Islam to take over the United States and other western nations. If you understand what a “Trojan Horse” means you will slowly realize that whilst the media attention is fixated on Islamic extremism and terrorism there is another Islamic strategy which seems to be moving beyond the media radar. By allowing our attention to be focused exclusively on the danger and prevention of terrorism, we ignore the many other ways we are being attacked. This documentary focuses on ‘civilization jihad’, a form of warfare that employs manipulative financial techniques, lawfare, infiltration of our civil institutions and government and insidious information dominance. Just how dangerous is Islamization? Is Barack Obama totally asleep on this issue or is he willingly allowing Islamization to happen because it serves a higher purpose? Understand how an unmovable wave of Islamization, if allowed to go unchallenged, could change the global scene over the next decade and alter the dynamics of the Middle East. America faces in addition to the threat of violent jihad another, even more toxic danger – a stealthy and pre-violent form of warfare aimed at destroying our constitutional form of democratic government and free society. The Muslim Brotherhood is the prime-mover behind this seditious campaign, which it calls “civilization jihad.”
An Additional Bonus – Sheba, Dedan and Tarshish
SHEBA, DEDAN AND TARSHISH (2 HOUR BONUS):
It is completely amazing that over 2000 years ago the prophet Ezekiel made a startling prophecy that during the end times there would be a major geo-political split within the Arab world. This split would lead to a group of Arab nations that would seek to wage war and destroy the nation of Israel but it would also lead to a group of Arab nations that would voice a protest.
Who are these nations known as Sheba and Dedan and what is the nature of their extraordinary relationship with the Merchants of Tarshish which the Iranian spiritual leaders have condemned as spiritual fornication? This is a fascinating bonus 2 hour insight into one of the most incredible dichotomies within the Middle East.
Sauadi Arabia, Kuwait and parts of the Gulf states may adopt strict Sharia law but they are completely dependant on the West to guard their oil interests from the growing threat of Islamic extremism from Iran as we have seen with both Saudi Arabia and Iran both using Yemen as part of their proxy conflict.
Even more amazing is that Saudi Arabia is actually an ally of Israel against Iran. In March 2015 a Saudi-owned news channel called on US President Obama to listen to Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Iran. A fascinating bonus.
