ISLAM- THE BEAST ARISING

Part 1 of 2
Revelation 13:1-4
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

Have you ever spent a lot of time searching for something only to later find out it had been right in front of you the whole time but you just didn’t see it?  Such has been the case with me regarding understanding where Islam fits in Bible prophecy.  I am sure we can all see it does indeed have a role to play in these last days but is Islam just a player in the events leading up to The Day of The Lord, or is it THE main player?
Now before I continue, please understand I am not an expert in this field and it is not my desire to debate on this topic.  Rather, I am simply sharing information I have gleaned from those who are knowledgeable in this subject so that you may look into this further, if you so desire.
In gathering information to use in this post, I initially planned to share excerpts from an audio CD I have from David Allen Lewis Ministries; the speaker is Avi Lipkin.  However, I now believe it is far better you listen to the complete audio yourself as it gives background and understanding of what I plan on sharing in part 2.
Avi’s wife Rachel, an Egyptian born Israeli, monitors Arab television and radio broadcasts in the Middle East.  Because of this, Avi has a unique and knowledgeable prospective on current events.  He has authored several books and is the head of a Judeo-Christian Bible Bloc party in Israel called “Gush-Hatanakhi” in Hebrew.  He has been interviewed on numerous television and radio stations and is in demand as a speaker and lecturer in churches, synagogues and civic groups all over the world.  Click here for his complete biography.
Some of the topics covered in this audio are as follows:
  • Will America go to war against Iran? 
  • Is the economy about to collapse? 
  • Is Obama a Christian or Muslim? 
  • Is the 2012 US election a foregone conclusion?
  • How Muslims could have an overnight majority in Europe!
  • And so much more…
If you desire understanding of the times we are living in and what may soon be upon us, please make time to listen to the following audio.(I have inserted an a video of the same person, on the same subject from the same time frame, I have only inserted the first few, there are 10, I trust you can find the next 7 if you like- W.E.)  It is just over an hour long and well worth the listen.
