Royal Mecca Clock in Photos

This clock dominates the skyline over Mecca now. I just found out this clock is actually 2,000 ft high so I got some pictures. This is actually the second tallest building in the world now.

All these pictures look photoshopped. This thing is just excessive.

Sorry I just had to add that one in!


Giant Clock in Mecca confirms Daniel 7:25 today

Islam is defying the World precisely as predicted by Daniel the prophet 2,600 years ago. GMT or Greenwich Mean Time is the world standard for aviation, shipping and all commerce. Muhammed went ahead and already changed the Calendar back in 622 A.D. Now the Islamists are challenging GMT as the Saudi Government has started ticking this new clock today in the city of Mecca, KSA. The clock is a striking resemblance to Big Ben and the Empire State Building. The launch of this new clock also marks the beginning of Ramadan across the world for Muslims.

Daniel 7:25 reads regarding the antichrist; “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute[a] the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time”.

There is an arabic script across the length of the clock. We can see from the photos the huge “bismallah”, which in English translates “in the name of Allah”. Watch this Chuck Missler video explaining Walid Shoebats amazing discovery matching the “bismallah” with the 666 of the Book of Revelation.

The last part of Daniel 7:25 is what concerns me most. It seems to me that right after the antichrist intends to change the times and law, THEN the saints shall be given into his hand. This should be at the half way point of the 7 year tribulation period. If the half way point is THIS CLOSE then the beginning of it is even closer.

This is an amazing example of the precise, specific nature of God’s Word. Hallelujah, Praise the Lord God of Israel, Daniel, and all the saints. We all need to make sure our lives are right with God.

Have a nice day! For this is the day that the Lord has made, let us be rejoice and be glad in it!


Rev 16 “Kings of the East” revealed

Greater Khorasan tribal areas are in NW Iran, NE Afghanistan, S Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan

Greater Khorasan a.k.a. "land where the sun rises"

As a Middle East news junkie I caught a rumor that came out of Kuwait last June reporting Osama Bin Laden to be alive and hiding in Khorasan Province, Iran. I thought OBL had been dead for many years but I googled Khorasan to see where it was and this wikipedia article came up.

I like wikipedia so the next thing I am reading that, “The name “Khorasan” is derived from Middle Persian khor “sun” + asa “literally, like or akin to, but usually meaning arising from”, hence meaning “land where the sun rises”.

In Revelation 16, it is written that “the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared”. I seem to remember that this term, “Kings of the East” in the original Greek was “Kings of the Rising Sun”. This was the text Hal Lindsey and other Western prophecy teachers have used for years while they taught China and Japan would invade Israel during Armageddon.

There is a Greek Interlinear Bible on line now. Anybody can view Revelation 16 in its original greek text here. (vs 12 is on page 3) but here is a cropping of the pdf file.

Uh… phone call for Pastor Obvious on line one!

  • Ancient Khorasan: “land where the sun rises” is today a modern day rats nest of some of Planet Earth’s most notorious jihadis
  • Revelation 16, Euphrates is dried up for “Kings of the rising of the sun”…

I was already fairly certain I had stumbled onto a solid nugget of truth but kind of just tucked it away in my brain and thought I would file it for future reference.

As circumstance would have it, it was not much later (about two weeks) I am reading Walid Shoebat’s “God’s War on Terror” for the first time. On page 174 he describes some Islamic prophecies in the Hadith indicating that black flags coming from the area of Khorasan will signify the appearance of the Mahdi is nigh.

Related by Abu Hurayrah: The Prophet Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam said: “(Armies carrying) black flags will come from Khurasan . No power will be able to stop them and they will finally reach Jerusalem where they will erect their flags.

I actually got “chicken skin” when I read that reference from the Hadith in Walid’s book. I thought for sure I would find the “Kings of the Rising Sun” reference from Rev 16 in the next paragraph but Walid left it out. I am guessing Walid must not have been a big reader of Hal Lindsey back in the day.

A little more digging around the internet and I even found a facebook page for a jihadist group with descent photoshop skills who seem to be laying their hats on this prophecy. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=396103295056

Once again, a perfect match and mirror image of the Islamic Mahdi and the Christian antichrist. Also if Walid’s teaching is right about the name of Allah being the mark of the beast / 666 then these flags they are waving and the banners across their foreheads and arms are a further literal fulfillment of the Book of Revelation.

Shalom



The Mahdi and Allah

Walid came to know Christ by trying to prove to his mother that the Christian bible was corrupted. As Walid opened up the Christian Bible and began reading it, he discovered Islam is all throughout the text, but that was not a good thing for the former PLO made man. One of the basic verses that woke up Walid and should wake up all muslims is in in 1 John 2: 22 Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist—he denies the Father and the Son.

Islamic Dome on the Rock, Temple Mount Jerusalem

All muslims are taught from birth that “It is not for God to take a son” and

Shocker: This is the very inscription written across the inside of the dome of the rock which occupies the temple Mount in Jerusalem from 692 AD until this very day.

Here is a perfect example why it should come as no surprise that Walid would immediately recognize this verse in John 2:22 as referring to Islam. The Bible identifies Islam as antichrist. No questions asked. But is it so simple? If this is true, there should be even more hints, evidence, and nuggets of truth all over the Bible.

Alrighty then! Lets dive into the thick of things then. You the reader must be a good Berean and as is taught in Acts 17:11 DO NOT TAKE MY WORD FOR THESE THINGS (or anyones elses) but search the scriptures yourselves to see if these things are so.

Let’s start with the Mahdi. مهدي‎ (arabic)

According to Islamic prophecy in the Quran and Hadiths, the Mahdi is “heir to all prophets” and “the perfect human being” who will be the first of the major signs heralding “the last days”. For more on the Mahdi read Walid’s book. The Mahdi will also be known by a many number of other titles, which we will examine over the coming days.

MAHDI IS THE LORD OF THE AGE

  • A common Shi’a title for the Mahdi; Sahib Al-Zaman, in English, “The Lord of the Age”.
  • Compare that with 2 Corinthians 4:4 where Satan is referred to “The lord of the age”

MUSLIM NAME FOR ALLAH IS THE DECIEVER

  • In the Quran Sura 3:54 Allah is referred to as Khayrul-Makireen or “the greatest of all deceivers”
  • Quran Sura 8:30 Allah is “the best schemer (deciever)” also in Sura 13:42, 10:21, 14:46, and several others.
  • Genesis 3:13 Eve says to God, “The serpent (Satan) Deceived me, and I ate”
  • 2 John 1:7 whoever denies Jesus has come in the flesh “is the deceiver and antichrist”
  • 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10 Satans work according to “every sort of evil that deceives”
  • Revelation 20:20 the Devil “who deceived them, thrown into the lake of fire”

I can not be the only one who finds it curious that in the Bible, Satan and the Antichrist are given names that are adopted by Islam as names for their own prophets and holy men. Why is it that in Islam, it is Allah who is the greatest of all deceivers, not Satan? I agree with Walid that it appears the devil is bragging a little here in the Quran.

There are dozens of other titles for the Mahdi which are perfect matches for Satan and the antichrist of the Bible. Tomorrow I will get into the Islamic Hadith Ka’b al Ahbar and the Book of Revelation and also we will start looking into the vivid descriptions of the antichrist in the Old Testament book of Daniel.

I have added a link to a Chuck Missler video on Walid’s Islam 666 theory. It appears Walid is in good company.

Shalom
