Hello sTs ~

I'm sort of "butting in" here, but I am curious, and respectful of what on your part seems a detailed and thorough understanding of your own religion, Islam.

You seem to apply knowledge of Isalm, instead of (if you will pardon me) the often emotional, tirade-filled ranting other Muslims spout when frustrated at questions (or insults) posted by non-Muslims.

After reading the exchange between you and M. Tovey, I thought I might just interject a bit.

Indeed, according to Biblical scripture, there will be an "anti-Christ" (to put it loosely) - more specific, there will be a false prophet, one who performes "majic" or "miracles" prior to Jesus Christ's second advent. The VAST majority of Israel will be fooled into thinking this person, labled "the Jewish Dictator" of Israel, IS INDEED the "savior", the Messiah as promised in the Old Testament (remember, Jewish religion today is still waiting; they long ago rejected Christ).

AND, to make a very involved story very short, Jesus Christ Himself is THE ONLY ONE who will DESTROY not only the Dictator of Israel, but the vast armies that have attacked her; as well, many, many Jews will be killed. The blood will flow as high as the horses' bridles for two-hundred miles (Rev. 14:19-20); it will take 7 months to bury the dead (Ezek. 39:12).

"And I saw heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and He (Christ) who sat upon it is called Faithfull and True; and in righteousness He judges and wages war." -Rev. 19:11

"And in that day His (Jesus Christ) feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south." - Zech. 14:4

The only Jews remaining after Jesus Christ wipes out EVERYTHING - will be the "remnant" of Jews who DID NOT believe in the False Prophet, the Dictator of Israel. In fact, these Jews had already accepted Christ as savior (BEFORE He appears); they knew scripture, and therefore they realize what is going on; they will leave the cities of Israel and hide in the caves on the out-skirts of Jerusalem (Zech. 14:2). These alone are the peoples whom God will restore Israel to.

So, you have a pretty powerfull thing in Jesus Christ - He is able to defeat the "anti-Christ" whom so many worship, whom couldn't be destroyed; He, Jesus Christ, is able to defeat the armies of the world.

"Now this is the plague with which the Lord will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth." -Zech. 14:12

"And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone." -Rev. 19:20

Does that not make you wonder, a moment, if there is not more to Him?

"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved." -Acts 16:31
