But there is a problem Muslims are already coming to America in great numbers and they reproduce rapidly. I have seen plenty of Muslims in my area. Years ago I would hardly see any of them, but lately I have begun to see more of them.

they are already in America as a fifth column.

Let it be understood that Apostolic Friends Forum is an Apostolic Forum.
Apostolic is defined on AFF as:

  1. There is One God. This one God reveals Himself distinctly as Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
  2. The Son is God himself in a human form or "God manifested in the flesh" (1Tim 3:16)
  3. Every sinner must repent of their sins.
  4. That Jesus name baptism is the only biblical mode of water baptism.
  5. That the Holy Ghost is for today and is received by faith with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues.
  6. The saint will go on to strive to live a holy life, pleasing to God.

Re: ISIS, Any thoughts?

ISIS is only a dress rerersal for what Islamic fundamentalists desire to see unleashed on earth. You see, Islam is a religion comprised of more than just a philosophy. Islam possesses eschatological prophecies that many Muslims believe will come to pass whole heartedly. Perhaps the most disturbing prophetic teaching they have is that of their coming savior, the Al-Mahdi. It is believed that the Al-Mahdi will appear at a time when the world is in great turmoil and Islam is engaged in heated battle. The Al-Mahdi appears and unites the Islamic world into a final Caliphate that will extend the power and teachings of Islam throughout the world. Millions of Islamic fundamentalists are praying for the Al-Mahdi’s appearance as you read this. In the Hadiths and Koran we have a prophetic outline of what this Al-Mahdi will do to achieve this. Let’s take a look at what Islamic Eschatology teaches about the Al-Mahdi:

• He will be Islam's deliverer.
• He is to be a descendent of Muhammad.
• He is to bear the name or some variant name of Muhammad.
• He will look like a Bani Israel.
• He will lead the Muslims and wage jihad against them rest of the world.
• He will re-establish the Caliphate and rule over the world.
• He will cause Islam to be the only religion in the world and rule with Islamic Law.
• He will cause the world to embrace the Islamic calendar.
• He will be much loved by the world.
• He will conquer the Jews and slaughter them.
• He will set up his seat of authority in Jerusalem.
• He will rule for seven years (or 8, or 9).
• He will make a treaty of seven years with a person of priestly lineage.
• He will possess and distribute wealth to the Muslims.
• He will discover a new Torah, Gospel, and the Ark, and will use them to argue and persuade Jews and Christian, and cause many people to follow him into Islam.
• He will have Isa (Islamic version of Jesus) to assist him.
• His assistant, Isa, will kill the ad-Dajjal (Islamic version of the antichrist) who exercises miracles that will torment the world.
• He will mark all men to distinguish Muslims from the infidels, the Muslim's face will then shine while that of a non-Muslim will become black.
• During his rule, there will be good rain, great harvest and crops.
• He will not work miracles; rather the working of miracles is attributed to Isa (the Islamic Jesus) who testifies to the world that Al-Mahdi is Savior.
Notice... everything Christian prophecy specifies that the Antichrist will do... Islam describes as a work of their coming Al-Mahdi. The Bible also describes some of the lands the Beast will lead (Dan 11:42, Ezek 38):
o Egypt, which he will attack and subdue (Dan 11:42).
o Meschek and Tubal (most likely parts of Turkey, parts of Southern Russia, parts of Iran),
o Magog (a region convering parts of either Syria and/or former Soviet Republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Turkey, Iran, Dagestan),
o Persia (Modern Iran)
o Cush (African Cush covers parts of Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia. Asian Cush covers Arabia through Euphrates),
o Put (Libya),
o Gomer (Cappadocia, Turkey),
o Togarmah (southeastern part of Turkey near Syria)
o Babylon (Modern Iraq. The Euphrates River in Iraq is also mentioned together with the two Beasts in Rev 16:12-13)
Basically, this is the region spanning N. Africa, Arabia, Syria, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asian Islamic Republics (the various -stans). All are Muslim dominated nations or have sizeable Islamic populations. The Bible says that these nations will come together and attack the land of Israel.

So... what are some thoughts regarding the al-Mahdi? What are your thoughts of ISIS desiring to re-establish the Caliphate for the coming Al-Mahdi?

We are not fighting against ISIS, we are fighting against principalities and powers.

The spirit of antichrist is about Jesus not coming in flesh. Why always confuse antichrist with beast?

"Many Christians do not try to understand what was written in a verse in the Bible. Instead they approach the passage to prove what they already believe."
