As someone who wastes a lot of time on YouTube, I have listened in on a couple of videos that postulate the “Islamic AntiChrist” narrative.
I think it is important to acknowledge before hand that the listed videos contain strong and potentially offensive comments and rebuttals.
In my personal life, I really do not condone strong words and so I share very, very, very reluctantly.
The subject matter is emotional and some think they can only be addressed vehemently.
I do not share that tone.
Yet, I think to journey and be invited into past writings and discussions on this topic can bear fruit in so many ways.
First, as they are hour or so long oral arguments, one can gain comprehensive knowledge that might take longer to glean from books.
Secondly, personally, I have taking in other videos from the panel, and so I am familiar with the delivery and attuned to tuning out viewpoints and arguments that I do not share.
And, thirdly, “But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.” – Deuteronomy 4:29.
In essence, there is a requirement and prerequisite for finding God.
And, so I hope these videos are only “ledgers on your leaderboard“.
There is a cost to leadership as there is forbearance for intimacy.
With that disclaimer out of way, let us return to our post’s topic.
And, that is that there are videos that float the idea of an Islamic AntiChrist.
Yet, there are dissenting voices, as well.
Here are some of them:
- Chris White
- Islamic Antichrist Debunked: The Mahdi Origins ( Video posted on March 20, 2015 )
- Jacob Prasch
- Jacob Prasch The Islamic Antichrist March 21 2016 – Andrew R ( Video posted on March 21, 2016 )
Interestingly, Jacob’s video was posted almost a year to the date on which Chris White’s video was posted.
Paul’s farewell to the Ephesians
Here is Paul’s farewell to the Ephesians:
…Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men.
For I did not shrink back from declaring to you the whole will of God.
Keep watch over yourselves and the entire flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers.
Be shepherds of the church of God, which He purchased with His own blood.…
( Acts 20-28 )
And a branch from his roots will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
And He will delight in the fear of the LORD, And He will not judge by what His eyes see, Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;…
( Isaiah 11:1-3 )
Word of Truth
The Lord’s Approved Workman
Remind the believers of these things, charging them before God to avoid quarreling over words; this is in no way profitable, and leads its listeners to ruin.
Make every effort to present yourself approved to God, an unashamed workman who accurately handles the word of truth.
But avoid irreverent and empty chatter, which will only lead to more ungodliness,…
( 2 Timothy 2:14-16 )
Prayer for the Disciples
…They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.
As You sent Me into the world, I have also sent them into the world.…
( John 17:16-18 )
The Sabbath Rest
…For whoever enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from His.
For the word of God is living and active. … it pierces even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow.
It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.…
( Hebrews 4:10-12 )
Continue in Him ….
- I have written these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you.
And as for you, the anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you.
But just as His true and genuine anointing teaches you about all things, so remain in Him as you have been taught.
( 1 John 2:26-28 )
- But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers.
( Matthew 23:8 )
- It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God. Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me.”
( John 6:45 )
- Evil men do not understand justice, But those who seek the LORD understand all things.
( Proverbs 28:5 )
- the Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and He will be in you.
( John 14:17 )
