The Koran, the book of Islam, is not only the testimony
of a false prophet, it is the testimony of Antichrist. Yet,
so many hearing that testimony today are willing to
believe it, to take it to heart, to stand on it, and even to
die for it — as if it were written by the Spirit of Truth.
Have you ever read the Koran? It is a book that has
influenced almost as many people as the Bible. It is a
book that has contributed to the shaping of world
history. And it is a book that will greatly influence the
events of these last days. If you haven't, I recommend
that you read it, but only after having first read the
Bible. Why? Though you may be able to spot the
absurdities in the Koran you will not be able to see
through the subtle elements of its powerful deception
unless you first come to know and understand real
scripture. Sure, it may take a while before you finish
both, but don't you think you owe it to your own soul to
at least look for the truth?
The whole premise is folly, you say? Then, consider
this: If what I was writing supposedly unmasked the
deceptions and myths of the Bible, how many people
would really care? And of those who would care, how
many Christian believers would take it upon themselves
to physically silence me? Though some might feel
wounded and perhaps tempted to do me hurt, I believe
that I would be able to pass through a crowd of them
without harm. Could I say the same about Moslem
believers if what I wrote defamed the Koran? No, it is
dangerous to speak out against them, their society, their
prophet, and their so-called holy book. Few adherents
of Islam tolerate any ideas other than their own, let
alone dissent. Magnanimity is just not a principle by
which they operate.
In the spirit of ecumenism and religious tolerance or
just not caring, many today have adopted a live-and-let-
live attitude about spiritual beliefs. I, too, believe that
there should be a freedom of choice concerning the way
we define the Creator to ourselves and the way we
worship. However, it behooves us to be aware that not
everyone shares such democratic ideals. In fact, very
few do. There are those who would rob us of that right.
Until recently, Christians were most concerned about
the threat that Communism posed to religious freedom.
To them I say, you won't know real religious
persecution until the Mohammedans have arrived.
Mohammedans are opposed to religions other than
their own because they feel they are a blasphemy to
Allah — a blasphemy which is to be punishable by
them, at that.
2. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ISAAC AND
In the Koran, the followers of Mohammed are
instructed to say:
"We believe in God, and that which has been
sent down on us, and sent down on Abraham
and Ishmael, Isaac and Jacob, and the Tribes,
and in that which was given to Moses and
Jesus, and the prophets, of their Lord; we
make no division between [distinction among]
any of them, and to Him we surrender."
Surah III (1)
Fast students of the Bible will recognize the subtle
introduction of Ishmael into the lineage of those who
received the covenant of God. They will recall that
Ishmael was the son of Abraham and Hagar — the
handmaid, or bondswoman, of Sarah. They will
remember that, concerning Ishmael, it was prophesied
through the angel of the Lord: "he will be a wild man
(or, closer to the Hebrew, "a wild ass of a man"); his
hand will be against every man, and every man's
against him" (Genesis 6:12). And they will remember
that it was through Isaac that God was to establish His
Covenant, not through Ishmael (see Genesis 17:18-22).
In reality, Ishmael and Hagar were to become outcasts
— banished by Abraham with God's approval (Genesis
21:9-12). That Ishmael was disinherited is reaffirmed
when God later commands Abraham to take his "only
son" Isaac (Genesis 22: 2, 12, and 16). After
banishment, Ishmael is mentioned little more than in
genealogies (Genesis 25:9-17 and 1 Chronicles 1:28-31)
and in his alliance with the disinherited son of Isaac,
Esau — which alliance is signified through the marriage
of Esau to Mahalath, Ishmael's daughter (Genesis 28:9).
God said plainly: "I WILL ESTABLISH MY
COVENANT WITH HIM (Isaac) FOR AN
EVERLASTING COVENANT, AND WITH HIS SEED
AFTER HIM" (Genesis 17:19); "MY COVENANT
WILL I ESTABLISH WITH ISAAC" (Genesis 17:21);
and, "LET IT NOT BE GRIEVOUS IN THY
[Abrahams] SIGHT BECAUSE OF THE LAD
[Ishmael], AND BECAUSE OF THE BONDWOMAN...
FOR IN ISAAC SHALL THY SEED BE CALLED"
(Genesis 21:12). Yet, in spite of all that is recorded,
Mohammed attempts to vindicate and elevate Ishmael's
"And we [the word 'we' in the Koran is often
used to denote Allah speaking] made covenant
with Abraham and Ishmael ..."
Surah II (2)
"And mention in the Book Ishmael; he was
true to his promise, and he was a Messenger, a
Prophet. He bade his people to pray and give
alms, and he was pleasing to his Lord."
Surah XIX (3)
Today, partly because of such false justifications, all
Moslems proudly call upon Abraham as their
progenitor through Ishmael. They have accepted the
teaching of Mohammed that:
"No; Abraham in truth was not a Jew, neither
a Christian; but he was a Muslim and one
pure of faith ..."
Surah III (4)
"O men, bow you down and prostrate
yourselves, and serve your Lord, and do good;
haply so you shall prosper; and struggle for
God as is His due, for He has chosen you, and
has laid on you no impediment in your
religion, being the creed of your father
Abraham; He named you Muslims aforetime
and in this, that the Messenger might be a
witness against you, and that you might be
witnesses against mankind."
Surah XXII (5)
Hear now what the Apostle Paul had to say concerning
Isaac and Ishmael:
"For it is written, that Abraham had two sons,
the one by a bondmaid, the other by a
freewoman. But he who was of the
bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of
the freewoman was by promise. Which things
are an allegory: for these are the two
covenants; the one from the mount Sinai,
which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar
[Hagar]. For this Agar is mount Sinai in
Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which
now is, and is in bondage with her children.
But Jerusalem which is above us is free, which
is the mother of us all. For it is written,
Rejoice thou barren that bearest not; break
forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the
desolate hath many more children than she
which hath an husband. Now we, brethren, as
Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as
then he that was born after the flesh
persecuted him that was born after the Spirit,
even so it is now. Nevertheless what saith the
scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her
son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be
heir with the son of the freeman. So then,
brethren, we are not children of the
bondwoman, but of the free."
I believe that the allegory which Paul cited is a far
greater figure of things than most people think. I believe
it not only helps us to understand such things as
spiritual freedom and bondage and the persecution
which the spiritually-minded must suffer at the hand of
the carnally-minded, but that the allegory also provides
Christians with the key to a final separation amongst
the children of men, — a separation between those who
believe on the one who came in the Father's name and
those who believe on the one who came in his own
The entirety of Islam is but a parody of the truth — a
parody that both literally and figuratively tries to tear
down the structure which God has built and rebuild
another in its place. For what reason? So the foundation
He laid and the cornerstone He established, that lost
souls might be returned to Him, could be obscured from
their view. Consider what has happened in Jerusalem
on Mount Moriah.
Mount Moriah is the place where Abraham, as a test of
faith, was ordered by God to sacrifice his son Isaac
instead of a lamb as a burnt offering (see Genesis 22:1-
14), — the same place where King David was instructed
by an angel (through the seer Gad) to "set up an altar
unto the Lord" (read 1 Chronicles 21:18-30; 22:1-11;
and, 2 Samuel 24:18-25), — the very same place where
"Solomon began to build the house of the Lord" (2
Islam has tried to pervert and subvert the selection of
the site for the establishment of God's Temple in two
ways: First, Moslem tradition has it that prior to
Abraham's above-mentioned test with Isaac he was
similarly tested with Ishmael at Mecca (6) and that after
passing the test both he and Ishmael built the Kaaba,
which structure Islam claims is the first house ever
made for the worship of God (such house now contained
within the court of the Great Mosque of Mecca in Saudi
Arabia). Second, Moslems claim the site of Solomon's
Temple as their own holy place. In fact, the Dome of the
Rock (the so-called Mosque of Omar) was built in 691-
692 A.D. over the rock that is believed to have been a
part of the great altar, used for burnt offering, within
the first Jerusalem Temple.
Concerning this matter of the house of the Lord, the
Apostle Paul further helps us to identify Islam as a
major component in the great "falling away" by stating
that in the latter times Satan would be revealed as he
"who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is
called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God
sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is
God" (2 Thessalonians 2:4). True, the Temple of God
today is His Church and His Church is the Body of
Christ, but also true is that in this world darkness tries
to hide even the vestiges of Truth; it seeks to confuse us
and the issue as much as possible. For that reason is the
site of Solomon's Temple important to the Devil.
It is evident to me that the Devil, — "the god of this
world" (2 Corinthians 4:4), has attempted to usurp the
light within the Old and New Testaments by rewriting
history and Scripture through the appearance of
Mohammed as a prelude to the appearance of the
Antichrist in the end times.
Concerning Islam's claim that Abraham travelled with
Ishmael to Mecca, Alfred Guillame (a noted Professor
of Arabic and Islamic studies) states that: ". . . there is
no historical evidence for the assertion that Abraham or
Ishmael was ever in Mecca, and if there had been such a
tradition it would have to be explained how all memory
of the Old Semitic name Ishmael (which was not in its
true Arabian form in Arabian inscriptions and written
correctly with an initial consonant Y) came to be lost.
The form in the Quran is taken either from Greek or
Syriac sources." (7)
Dr. Guillame adds that many words in the Koran do not
yield a meaning unless they are traced back to their
Hebrew or Syriac sources, and that this is especially
important in view of the fact that the Koran purports
itself to have been written in pure, unadulterated
For proof that Mohammed tried to rewrite Scripture,
all we need do is compare a few central teachings in the
Bible with those in the Koran:
1. Christ Jesus said to his followers: "In the world ye
shall have tribulation" (John 16:33). Mohammed
says: "Those who believe and are godfearing — for
them is good tidings in the present life" (8) and
"The present life is naught but a sport and a
2. The Apostle Paul wrote: "By grace are ye saved
through faith . . . not of works, lest any man should
boast" (Ephesians 2:9). Mohammed writes that
God created this world " — that He might try you,
which one of you is fairer in works." (10)
3. The Bible teaches that we are responsible for our
own failings. Mohammed says: "And my sincere
counsel will not profit you, if I desire to counsel you
sincerely, if God desires to pervert you." (11)
4. Compare the Bible's "Let no man say when he is
tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be
tempted with evil, neither tempteth He any man"
(James 1:13) to the Koran's "God leads astray
whomsoever He will" (12) and "We try you with
evil and good for a testing." (13)
5. Christians understand that demons have nothing in
common with God and that they are beyond
reclamation. According to the Koran, however,
God not only created unclean spirits ("the jinn") to
serve Him, He also provides for the redemption of
6. Compare these words of Christ Jesus concerning
the woman taken in adultery: "He that is without
sin among you, let him cast the first stone" (John
8:7) with these words of Mohammed: "The
fornicatress and the fornicator — scourge each one
of them a hundred stripes, and in the matter of
God's religion let no tenderness seize you if you
believe in God and the last Day; and let a party of
believers witness their chastisement." (14)
7. Christ Jesus said: "My kingdom is not of this
world" (John 18:36). Mohammed, however,
testifies of a sensuous heaven wherein are "the
houris" — beautiful nymphs which are among the
rewards of faithful Moslems. He says: "Surely for
the godfearing awaits a place of security, gardens
and vineyards and maidens with swelling breasts,
like of age, and a cup overflowing." (15)
8. Finally, Christ Jesus said that in heaven we
"neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are
as angels of God in heaven" (Matthew 22:30). Yet
Mohammed says that "the inhabitants of Paradise
today are busy in their rejoicing; they and their
spouses, reclining upon couches in the shade." (16)
3. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JESUS AND
Jesus' birth as the Messiah was prophesied in Scripture.
Mohammed's birth as the so-called Seal of the Prophets
Through many witnesses, the Holy Spirit established
the lineage of the Christ from Abraham through Isaac
and Jacob to the tribe of Judah and out of the house of
David (Genesis 12:3, 18:18, 21:12, 22:18, 26:4, 28:14,
49:10; 2 Samuel 7:12-16; Psalms 18:50, 89:3-4, 89:20,
132:11; Isaiah 9:6-7, 11:1, 11:10; Jeremiah 23:5-6,
33:14-15). Moreover, it was prophesied through Isaiah
that the Messiah would be conceived by a virgin (Isaiah
7:14). It was prophesied through Micah that he would
be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2). And, it was
prophesied through the typology in the third and sixth
chapters of Zechariah that his name would be 'Joshua'
(of which 'Jesus' is the Hellenized form).
Who prophesied the birth of Mohammed as a true
prophet of God? No one. No one except Mohammed.
"Jesus son of Mary said, 'Children of Israel, I
am indeed the Messenger of God to you,
confirming the Torah that is before me, and
giving good tidings of a Messenger who shall
come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed."'
Surah LXI (17)
There is no record that the Lord Jesus said any such
Throughout the Koran, Mohammed refutes that Jesus
was the Son of God:
"The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary was only the
Messenger of God, and His Word that He
committed to Mary, and a spirit from Him."
Surah IV (18)
"The Messiah, son of Mary, was only a
Messenger; Messengers before him passed
away; his mother was a just woman; they both
ate food. Behold, how We make clear signs to
them; then behold, how they perverted are!"
Surah V (19)
"The Creator of the heavens and the earth —
how should He have a Son, seeing that He has
no consort, and He created all things, and He
has knowledge of everything?"
Surah VI (20)
"The Jews say, 'Ezra is the Son of God;' the
Christians say, 'The Messiah is the Son of
God.' That is the utterance of their mouths,
confirming with the unbelievers before them."
Surah IX (21)
"They [the Christians] say, 'God has taken to
Him a son.' Glory be to Him! He is All-
sufficient; to Him belongs all that is in the
heavens and in the earth; you have no
authority for this, what, so you say concerning
God that you know not? Say: 'Those who
forge against God falsehood shall not prosper.
Some enjoyment in this world; then unto Us
they shall return; then We shall let them taste
the terrible chastisement, for that they were
unbelievers [in Mohammed and the Koran],
Surah X (22)
"Praise belongs to God, who has not taken to
Him a son."
Surah XVII (23)
"And they say, 'The All-merciful has taken
unto Himself a son' You have indeed advanced
something hideous! The heavens are well-nigh
rent of it and the earth split asunder, and the
mountains well-nigh fall down crashing for
they have attributed to the All-merciful a son;
and it behooves not the All-merciful to take a
Surah XIX (24)
"God has not taken to Himself any son."
Surah XXIII (25)
"He has not taken to Him a son."
Surah XXV (26)
"Is it not of their own calumny that they say,
'God has begotten?' They are truly liars."
Surah XXXVII (27)
"And when the son of Mary is cited as an
example, behold, thy people turn away from it
and say, 'What are our gods better, or he?'
They [the Christians] cite him not to thee, save
to dispute; nay, but they are a people
contentious. He is only a servant We blessed,
and We made him to be an example to the
Children of Israel."
Surah VXLIII (28)
It was Mohammed's self-proclaimed mission "... to
warn those who say, 'God has taken to Himself a son.'"
(29) Yet, many have testified of the Messiah's Sonship.
It was prophesied by the Holy Spirit through King
David: "I will be his father, and he shall be my son" (2
Samuel 7:14). Through Isaiah: "Unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given" (Isaiah 9:6). Through Gabriel to
Mary: "He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of
the Highest" (Luke 1:32) and "The Holy Ghost shall
come upon thee: therefore also that holy thing which
shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God"
(Luke 1:35). John the Baptist bore record that Jesus
was the Son of God (John 1:32-34). God Himself
testified twice of Jesus: "THIS IS MY BELOVED SON,
IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED" (Matthew 3:17,
17:5; Mark 1:11, 9:7; and, Luke 3:22, 9:35). Saint Mark
testified in his gospel: "Jesus Christ, the Son of God"
Even the unclean spirits recognized that Jesus was the
Son of God: "And, behold, they cried out, saying, 'What
have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art
thou come hither to torment us before the time?'"
Matthew 8:29 (30)
To casual observers and lifeless Christians, that
Mohammed claimed God had no Son in Jesus does not
seem to be so very damaging: after all, they think, he
did acknowledge that Jesus was a prophet, — "a
Messenger of God." These fail to see that for
Mohammed to have stated that Jesus was not a prophet
would have kept many from his own teachings; it would
have precluded their even listening to his message.
Further, these fail to see that Mohammed had to include
Jesus within his teachings if he was to be more
convincing concerning his own authority. It is easier to
deceive if you pretend to build on an already-
established foundation. It is easier to destroy if you
claim a heritage in Truth:
"Surely We sent down the Torah, wherein is
guidance and light, thereby the Prophets who
had surrendered themselves gave judgment
for those of Jewry, as did the masters and the
rabbis, following such portion of God's Book
as they were given to keep and were witness to.
. . . And We sent, following in their footsteps,
Jesus son of Mary, confirming the Torah
before him; and We gave to him the Gospel,
wherein is guidance and light, and confirming
the Torah before it, as a guidance and an
admonition unto the godfearing."
Surah V (31)
Mohammed tries to persuade us that the Koran is just
as scriptural as the Torah and the Gospels. He tries to
make it seem as if the Torah and the Gospels and the
Koran are equal parts in a threefold plan of divine
revelation to humankind. Why? The most effective way
to win individuals over to your way of thinking is to,
first, tell them what they already believe is true (so you
don't alienate them) and, second, slowly persuade them
that what they don't yet know or understand can be
provided for, or answered by, your doctrines: the wolf-
in-shepherd's-clothing approach, so to speak.
Both Moses and Jesus proved their words with works
and signs following. The miracles performed through
them punctuated the truths they spoke and the lives
they lived. Christ Jesus said:
"... for the works which the Father hath
given me to finish, the same works that I do,
bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent
"Say ye of him, whom the Father hath
sanctified, and sent into the world, 'Thou
blasphemest;' because I said, 'I am the Son of
God'? If I do not the works of my Father,
believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe
not me, believe the works: that you may know,
and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in
Mohammed did not prove his words with works. Oh, he
frequently proclaims that the Surahs (the main
divisions or chapters) of the Koran are themselves
"signs, clear signs." But there are no accounts of
miracles wrought through him, save those unreliable
that are attributed to him through the imagination and
fancy of his followers. Mohammed tries to explain away
the absence of such proofs this way:
"They say, 'Why have signs not been sent
down upon him from his Lord?' Say: 'The
signs are only with God, and I am only a plain
warner.' What, is it not sufficient for them
that We have sent down upon thee the Book
that is recited to them [meaning the Koran]?
Surely, in that is a mercy, and a reminder to a
people who believe."
Surah XXIX (32)
"It is He who has sent His Messenger
[Mohammed] with the guidance and the
religion of truth, that He may uplift it above
every religion. God suffices as a witness."
Surah XLVIII (33)
Mohammed claimed that it was only for him to deliver
"the Message Manifest," — the final word from God.
(34) He tried to delude the people into thinking that he
was the Christ returned to earth. In doing so, the Devil
sought to establish his authority for overturning the
principles of peace, love, and forgiveness taught by the
Jesus instructed us to love our enemies, to revile not
when reviled, to forgive those who despitefully use us,
and to refrain from judgment (the condemnation of our
peers). Hear what Mohammed had to say on those
"O believers, prescribed for you is retaliation,
touching the slain; freeman for freeman, slave
for slave, female for female ... In retaliation
there is life for you, men possessed of minds;
haply you will be godfearing."
Surah II (35)
"And fight in the way of God with those who
fight with you. . . . And slay them wherever
you come upon them, and expel them from
where they expelled you; [your own]
persecution is more grievous than slaying
Surah II (36)
"Whoso commits aggression against you, do
you commit aggression against him like as he
has committed against you ..."
Surah II (37)
"Prescribed for you is fighting, though it be
hateful to you."
Surah II (38)
" . . . take not to yourselves friends of them
[the disbelievers] until they emigrate in the
way of God; then, if they turn their backs,
take them, and slay them wherever you find
Surah IV (39)
"This is the recompense of those who fight
against God and His Messenger, and hasten
about the earth, to do corruption there: they
shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their
hands and feet shall alternately be struck off,
or they shall be banished from the land."
Surah V (40)
"Fight them [the unbelievers], till there is no
persecution and the religion is God's entirely."
Surah VIII (41)
"It is not for any Prophet to have prisoners
until he make wide slaughter in the land."
Surah III (42)
"Slay the idolaters wherever you find them,
and take them, and confine them, and lie in
wait for them at every place of ambush."
Surah IX (43)
"Fight those who believe not in God and the
Surah IX (44)
"And fight the unbelievers totally even as they
fight you totally; and know that God is with
Surah IX (45)
"O believers, fight the unbelievers who are
near to you, and let them find in you a
harshness; and know that God is with the
Surah IX (46)
"The recompense of evil is evil the like of it . . .
Surah XLII (47)
"When you meet the unbelievers, smite their
necks, then, when you have made wide
slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds; then
set them free, either by grace or ransom, till
the war lays down its loads."
Surah XLVII (48)
"Mohammed is the Messenger of God, and
those who are with him are hard against the
unbelievers, merciful one to another."
Surah XLVII I (49)
"Thou shalt not find any people who believe in
God and the Last Day who are loving to
anyone who opposes God and His Messenger."
Surah LVIII (50)
"O Prophet, struggle with the unbelievers and
the hypocrites, and be thou harsh with them."
Surah LXVI (51)
It should be clear that the literature of Mohammed is
hateful, encouraging people to live both in fear and by
the sword in judgment of one another. Compare the
preceding quotations with the following instructions
given by the Christ:
"But I say unto you which hear, Love your
enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Bless them that curse you, and pray for them
which despitefully use you. And unto him that
smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the
other; and him that taketh away thy cloke
forbid not to take thy coat also. Give to every
man that asketh of thee; and of him that
taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
And as ye would that men should do to you, do
ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them
which love you, what thank have ye: for
sinners also love those that love them. And if
ye do good to them which do good to you, what
thank have ye? for sinners also do the same.
And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to
receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also
lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But
love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend,
hoping for nothing again; and your reward
shall be great, and ye shall be the children of
the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful
and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as
your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye
shall not be judged, condemn not, and ye shall
not be comdemned: forgive, and ye shall be
forgiven: Give, and it shall be given unto you;
good measure, pressed down, and shaken
together, and running over, shall men give into
your bosom. For with the same measure that
ye mete, withal it shall be measured to you
Having compared the previous passage with those
immediately preceding it, which one of the two — Jesus
or Mohammed — do you think is the true witness of the
Considering what is written in the Koran, there should
be little wonder why Bibles are not allowed into
countries over which the banner of Islam flies. The
people of those nations might be able to read:
"Thus saith the Lord: SUCH AS ARE FOR
DEATH, TO DEATH: AND SUCH AS ARE
FOR THE SWORD, TO THE SWORD: AND
SUCH AS ARE FOR THE FAMINE, TO
THE FAMINE: AND SUCH AS ARE FOR
THE CAPTIVITY, TO THE CAPTIVITY. "
"Put up again thy sword into its place: for all
they that take the sword shall perish with the
"He that leadeth into captivity shall go into
captivity: he that killeth with the sword must
be killed with the sword."
"Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but
rather, give place unto wrath: for it is written,
VENGEANCE IS MINE; I WILL REPAY,
saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy
hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink;
for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on
his head. Be not overcome with evil, but
overcome evil with good."
In short, they would find out that the God of Abraham,
the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, — the one of
whom Christ Jesus came to testify, is a god of peace and
love and not a god of war and hate. Moreover, they
would learn of the Levitical high priest and his role as
intercessor for the children of Israel, offering sacrifice
once a year for their sins, and how Christ Jesus was sent
to sacrifice himself "once for all" (Hebrews 10:10).
They would learn how the Old Testament events, rules,
and regulations were but a figure, or typology, of things
to come. They would learn to understand the role of the
Lamb as Intercessor for all nations under the sun. And,
finally, concerning their relationship to Christ Jesus,
they would learn that "there is none other name under
heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved"
Throughout the Koran, Mohammed attempts to
undercut the role of Christ Jesus as Savior. He tries to
negate that the Lamb "bare the sin of many, and made
intercession for the transgressors" (Isaiah 53:12) and
that "he ever liveth to make intercession for them"
"Intercessor there is none, save after His

Jesus' stead. What of the crucifixion? In his own form
of gnostic Docetism, Mohammed accounts it cruci-

Surah IV (59)
Guilty of the ultimate crime against God are those who
say that Jesus is not the Christ and that He did not die
for our sins. For that reason alone, Mohammed
condemns himself and his followers (so long as they
remain his followers). The Lord Jesus said:
"For God so loved the world that He gave His
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have everlasting
life. For God sent not His Son into the world to
condemn the world; but that the world
through him might be saved. He that believeth
on him is not condemned: but he that
believeth not is condemned already, because
he hath not believed in the name of the only
begotten Son of God."
"I am come in my Father's name, and ye
receive me not: if another shall come in his
own name, him ye shall receive."
"If I had not come and spoken unto them, they
had not had sin: but now they have no cloke
for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my
Father also. If I had not done among them the
works which none other man did, they had not
had sin: but now have they both seen and
hated both me and my Father."
Simply stated, without Christ Jesus we have no
advocate with the Father. If we reject the one God sent,
we reject the mercy He extends to us through that one.
4. HOW IT ALL ADDS UP
Central to Christianity is the doctrine of salvation
through the atonement of Christ Jesus for our sins.
Certainly the Lamb's sacrifice does not relieve any one
of us from our own responsibilities. Nor does it take
away from Paul's admonition for us to "work out our
own salvation with fear and trembling" (Philippians
2:12). What Christ Jesus did was reconcile us to the
Father that we might receive forgiveness (a restoration
to fellowship with Him and His own) and grace (His
unmerited favor). By resisting temptation all the way to
Calvary, Christ Jesus was victorious over the Tempter.
Through the self-sacrificing life that was in him, our
King brought gifts for all who would believe on him. He
paved the way for us back to our God. To say that Jesus
was just a mortal is far from the Truth. To say that he
was not the Son of God is a lie. To say that he did not
die for our sins is heretical:
"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is
the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the
Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the
Son, the same hath not the Father; [but] he
that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father
1 John 2:22-23
"Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: every
spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come
in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that
confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the
flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of
antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it
should come; and even now already is it in the
1 John 4:2-3
"He that believeth on the Son of God hath the
witness in himself: he that believeth not God
hath made Him a liar; because he believeth
not the record that God gave of His Son."

"For many deceivers are entered into the
world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is
come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an
2 John 7
It should be obvious to the discerning reader that
Mohammed has tried to make Christ Jesus' life of null
effect for sinners. True, Mohammed, has been just one
of many who have tried to discredit the Savior.
However, he is not just one antichrist of many
antichrists: Bible prophecy reveals his testimony as
testimony of the Antichrist.
In the thirteenth chapter of Revelation, it is written:
"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath
understanding count the number of the beast:
for it is the number of a man; and his number
is Six hundred threescore and six."
The beast referred to here is the confederacy of Islamic
states which is to take shape during these last days. The
man is Mohammed — the identification coming from
Gematria, the ancient Hebrew science which assigns
numerical values to words.
In Gematria, the value of a word is determined by
adding the numerical equivalents of the individual
letters that form it. Here, then, are the steps necessary
for identifying Mohammed as the "name" and
"number" of the beast:
The simplest phonetic transcription of the word
(1) M O H A M ED
In ancient Hebrew, the closest counterparts of those
(2) Mem Waw Hey Aleph Mem Yod Dalet
The proper character representation for the word
Mohammed in John's Vision is:
Note: John thought, understood, and "saw" in Hebrew
(written from right to left). However, he transcribed his
vision into Greek (written from left to right). Hence the
reason for the so-called "final Mem" (the
representation of Mem when it ends a word) being used
in the beginning place here.
In Gematria, the numerical equivalents of the above
characters are, respectively:
(4) 600 6 5 1 40 10 4
(5) The sum of the above numbers is 666, or "Six
hundred threescore and six."
(Please read Section 8, entitled Answers to Possible
Questions, for additional comments concerning this
transliteration and its numerical values as well as
When you stop to think about it, everything fits. 1) That
"the fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon
earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and
shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down,
and break it in pieces" (Daniel 7:23): The nation of
Islam, with all of its oil-rich countries, will wield more
power than any earthly kingdom heretofore known. 2)
That an end-time ruler shall "think to change times"
(Daniel 7:25): The Moslem era dates from the Hegira,
the forced journey of Mohammed from Mecca to
Medina in 622 A.D. 3) That the final end-time ruler
shall not regard "the desire of women" (Daniel 11:37):
Mohammedans view women as being little better than
chattel. And, 4) That men shall have "the name of the
beast" (Revelation 13:17): Today, the word
'Mohammed' is the most popularly used name in the
world. People have incorporated it into their names
more than any other single word.
5. INTERPRETING END-TIME PROPHECY IN
VIEW OF ISLAM
Though souls are not able to fully comprehend the
mysteries of God while they are on earth, they may
learn through the fulfillment of His prophecies that He
is. It is a fact that many who have committed their lives
to Him first came to believe and trust in Him because
they learned that His prophecies had been fulfilled. And
it is a fact that many of the already faithful have been
helped to continue in their faith because of things so
revealed. In short, we are to "despise not prophesyings"
(1 Thessalonians 5:20). For what reasons? "The
testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy" (Revelation
19:10) and "he that hath received his testimony hath set
to his seal that God is true" (John 3:33).
Many situations developing on this earth portend a
quick end to this generation — that is, this age. I am
writing of them now not that the end might be averted
but that others might be influenced toward good, God,
and to accept and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their
personal Savior, and that children of God might keep
their peace as the raging storm surrounding them seeks
to engulf them. Things in this world are going to get
much worse. It is my hope that people turn more to the
Lord God before they do. It is my hope that they not
become embittered by them as they do and that they
give the Lord the honor and glory that is His due.
Lest we despair when finding ourselves in the midst of
darkness and, as a result, come to believe that we have
been forsaken by God, it is important for us to
understand that the unkindness, disobedience,
lawlessness, wickedness, immorality, and selfishness we
witness, and will witness to an ever greater degree, is
merely the "falling away" (2 Thessalonians 2:3) that so
many of the prophets of God and the apostles of His
Christ prophesied was to come to pass just prior to
Concerning such incontinence and its relationship to the
removal of the current world system, it is important to
understand that the earth will come to complete
depravity before Jesus returns to establish His
Kingdom. It is His Will that sproutlings of
righteousness not be uprooted with tares of wickedness.
It is His Will that the weak be given time to grow strong
in Him. Hence, as the return of Christ draws nigh, we
should expect to see a widening gap, — a deepening
division, — an increasing distinction, between the
people who belong to God and the people who have no
part in Him. There will be no shades of grey when the
Shekinah-glory of God appears. Only spiritual light and
darkness will be evident.
Besides an increasingly sick and sinful mass
consciousness, there will be widespread famine and
pestilence and great quakes and wars during the latter
times, as Christ Jesus prophesied (Matthew 24:6-7;
Mark 13:7-8; Luke 21:9-11). The Master told of such
events that his followers might be better prepared when
those signs of the end came to pass. How so, "better
prepared?" While nonbelievers will be surprised and
offended and made afraid when such horrible things
take place, believers will be strengthened. True
believers — even if they themselves are suffering — will
be able to view the events as prophecy fulfilled, — as
continued proof that there is a God. And in that proof
they will rejoice for they will know their also-promised
rest will surely follow.
Few people realize how inextricably linked the
fulfillment of prophecy has been, and is, to proof that
God is. Consider the Bible. Every book and epistle has
some prophetic elements in it, from prophecies
concerning the children of Israel to prophecies
concerning the advent of Christ to prophecies
concerning His return.
Prophecies which have to do with end-time events are
called "apocalypses," the word apocalypse coming from
the Greek word apokalypsis --- meaning, "disclosure,"
"unveiling," or "revelation." Apocalyptic writings,
then, are reports of divine disclosures or spiritual
unveilings concerning those things which will take place
before the Day of Judgment.
Apocalyptic writings may be found in many places
throughout Scripture. However, the Revelation of Christ
Jesus to St. John is the culmination of all apocalypses.
Why? It is the master-piece of testimony to souls in dust
that God was and is and ever shall be. It unveils the
final horrors that will beset this world, an
understanding of which is necessary for end-time saints
to keep their faith in God during the tribulations and
sorrows that are to come.
Yes, the die has been cast. For those who may be asking
themselves "How can that be?" and "Doesn't that
smack of predestination?" I can only say that failure is
built into the outcome from the start of whatever is
attempted outside of God's Will. No matter whether the
attempt is to build a religious or political group, a
nation, a career, a life, or a world — if the intent is not
in keeping with the laws of God, the action is doomed.
(Failure may not be evidenced for seventy years or for
seven thousand years but, make no mistake, it will
come.) Further, just because this world and its heaven
are destined to pass away does not mean that God has
determined which souls are to live and which souls are
to die. Each soul determines that for itself. Though the
end, or outcome, of one's intent may be clearly seen in
Spirit, every soul chooses for itself the direction in
which it travels.
For those who may be inclined — upon learning of the
fate of this world — to foolishly conclude that the
Creator is cruel, I wish to remind them that it is man
who sins, not God. Had God not withheld His Judgment
we all would have been wiped out long ago. God has
been most merciful to transgressors in that He has given
us time to repent.
Concerning end-time prophecies, it is important for the
spiritually-minded to understand that two major
developments are to take shape during the end-time.
Both are already in the making. One is the formation of
a ten-nationed United States of Europe. And the other is
the formation of a ten-nationed Islamic Republic. The
development of each confederacy (or, "beast") is
described in the last book of the Bible, Revelation.
The formation of a ten-nationed European Community
— what many have come to call "the revived Holy
Roman Empire" — is prophesied in Chapter 17. The
formation of the ten-nationed Islamic Republic — what
most have failed to identify at all — is prophesied in
Chapter 13. In those two chapters, two entirely different
political/economic/religious entities are each depicted as
a beast having seven heads and ten horns. Although
their similar depictions have prompted many Bible
expositors to conclude that the beasts are one and the
same, such a conclusion is incorrect. Though both have
seven heads and ten horns, the "scarlet coloured beast"
in Revelation 17 is not the same as the beast "like unto a
leopard" in Revelation 13. That they both have seven
heads and ten horns simply means they are both
manifestations of evil — the Devil himself depicted in
Revelation 12 as "a great red dragon, having seven
heads and ten horns."
Here, now, are Revelation 17 and 13 unlocked by Spirit
to spiritual sense:
Verses 1 through 6
"And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven
vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, 'Come hither; I will
shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth
upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have
committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have
been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.' So he
carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a
woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of
blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the
woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked
with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup
in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her
fornication: And upon her forehead was a mysterious name
written, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF
HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
"The great whore that sitteth upon many waters" is the Roman Catholic Church. That "the
kings of the earth have committed fornication" with her refers to the joint rule she has
enjoyed with many governments throughout the world. That "the inhabitants of the earth
have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication" means that through her teachings
many peoples have been lead to apostacy, — to worship for Christ that which is not
Christ. The scarlet and purple colors in which the woman is arrayed symbolize the
whorish nature of her royal sovereignty. That she is "decked with gold and precious
stones and pearls" indicates the pomp of her material wealth. The "cup in her hand full of
abominations and filthiness of her fornication" points to the golden chalice with which
she serves idolatry and false doctrine. The name on her headband signifies her vice and
the extent to which that vice has spread. That she is "drunken with the blood of saints,
and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus" refers both to her delusion that, because many
of her members have been of God, she also is of God as well as to her reeling in the
names of those elect to lend credibility to her institution.
Verses 7 through 8
"And the angel said unto me, 'Wherefore didst thou marvel? I
will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that
carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The
beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of
the bottomless pit, and go to destruction: and they that dwell
on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in
the book of life from the casting down of the world, when they
behold the beast that was and is not, and yet is.'"
"The beast that thou sawest was, and is not" refers to the fallen Roman Empire. That the
empire "shall ascend" means that it will rise again — "yet is" also indicating its presence
looming on the horizon. "The bottomless pit" is the depths of corruption, hell. That "those
whose names were not written in the book of life" shall wonder means that spiritually-
gross, enblackened souls will not understand the true significance of the empire's
Verses 9 through 11
'"And here is the mind that hath wisdom. The seven heads are
seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are
seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet
come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is
of the seven, and goeth to destruction.'"
"Seven heads" here carries a double meaning. First, it refers to the seven hills of Rome
(Aventine, Caelian, Capitoline, Esquiline, Palatine, Quirinal, and Viminal), in which the
enclave of blasphemy is found ("on which the woman sitteth"), and, second, it refers to
the seven political systems ("seven kings") by which Rome has governed and been
governed. That "five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come" and the beast is
"the eighth" and "of the seven" all point to the political systems being successive rather
than contemporary to one another, for example:
1. The Republic of Rome
510 BC - 476 AD
(the last Roman emperor was deposed in 476 AD)
2. The barbarian (foreign) rule of Rome
476 AD - 774 AD
3. The Carolingian Empire and its legacy to Rome: the growth of
Rome into a city-state and the development of joint rule by nobility
774 AD -1420 AD
4. Rome under absolute papal rule
1420 AD -1870 AD
5. Rome included within Italian constitutional monarchy
1870 AD -1922 AD
(such inclusion was heralded by the withdrawal of the French
garrison supporting Pope Pius IX, the surrender of Rome to Italian
troops, and the subsequent election of Rome as seat of the
6. Rome under Italian Fascism
1922 AD -1946 AD
7. Rome as the seat of an Italian "democratic Republic"
1946 AD - present
(1948 was the actual year that the new constitution came into full
Verses 12 through 18
"'And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which
have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings
one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give
their power unto the beast. These shall make war with the
Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of
Lords, and King of Kings: and they that are with him are
called, and chosen, and faithful.' And he saith unto me, 'The
waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are
peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the
ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate
the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall
eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in
their hearts to fulfill His Will, and to agree, and give their
kingdoms unto the beast, until the words of God shall be
fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city,
which reigneth over the kings of the earth.' "
Here, it is clarified that ten nations ("ten kings") will arise as a confederacy. That "these
have one mind, and shall give their power and strength to the beast" indicates their great
commitment to the union. That these kings will reign from their establishment until the
Christ's return is revealed by the angel telling John they "shall make war with the Lamb."
That they "shall hate the whore" means there will be no room for the doctrines of Roman
Catholicism within the political ideology that unites these nations. Thus, it is because of
their incompatibility with the whore that the nations "shall make her desolate and naked,
and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire" — meaning, they will remove her power
and wealth by plundering and destroying her. Thenceforth, Vatican City — "that great
city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth" — shall be no more.
Verses 1 through 2
"And I 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. 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."
This beast — the same beast that Daniel saw as the last of "four great beasts" (Daniel 7:3)
— represents the most terrible empire the world will ever know. That the beast is "like
unto a leopard" speaks of the cunning practices by which it will disrupt the entire earth;
that its feet are "as the feet of a bear" means it will unmercifully trample and crush all
who oppose it; that its mouth is "the mouth of a lion" identifies its devouring and scornful
nature. Like the beast of Revelation 17, the backbone of this beast will be a league of ten
nations ("ten horns"). However, unlike the beast of Revelation 17, full authority will be
given it during "the last time." In short, the dragon's final movements will be made
through this beast: the so-called nation of Islam, — a confederacy of Islamic states.
Verses 3 through 8
"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, and they worshipped the dragon because he
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?' And there was given unto him a mouth speaking
great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him
to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth
in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His Name, and His
Tabernacle, the ones dwelling in heaven. And it was given
unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them:
and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and
nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him,
whose names are not written in the slain Lamb's book of life
from the casting down of the world."
That one of the beast's heads was "wounded" and was "healed" refers perhaps to the
miraculous deathbed recovery that one of the new empire's rulers will make. (That "by a
sword" is used to qualify "wound" in verse 14 suggests the leader will be pierced in an
assassination attempt.) That "all the world wondered after the beast" signifies that the
entire earth will hold the nation of Islam in awe. That "they worshipped the beast" simple
means that all nations will eventually bow before the power it wields and, thus, prostrate
themselves before the dragon, the Devil himself. (In other words, by worshipping the
earthly manifestation of evil, mortals will be worshipping the source of evil.) Hence,
though all people whose names are "not written in the book of life" will wonder at both
the "scarlet coloured beast" and the "beast like unto a leopard," worldwide amazement
will turn to admiration and adoration during the latter times only in the case of the
leopard-like beast (compare Revelation 13:8 with Revelation 17:8).
That the beast will "make war with the saints" refers to the great wave of persecution that
will follow those on this earth who are of the one true God. That he will "wear out"
(Daniel 7:25) and "overcome" the saints means that many who profess Christ will be
assaulted, turned out, starved, imprisoned, and slain by those who have the mark of the
beast or his name. That power was given unto the beast "to continue forty and two
months" refers to the time remaining for the last earthly empire from the moment that it
establishes "the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel" (Matthew 24:15; Mark
13:14) — "the abomination of desolation" translated from the Hebrew as "the
transgression of desolation" and "the abomination that maketh desolate" in the King
James' Version of that prophet's book (see Daniel 8:13; 11:31; and 12:11), such
abomination, I believe, the blood sacrifice of sheep on Rock Moriah.
Verses 9 through 10
"If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into
captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword
must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the
faith of the saints."
Here, John makes a direct reference to the spiritual law regarding Judgment that was
expressed by the Holy Spirit to Jeremiah: "Such as are for the famine, to the famine; and
such as are for the captivity, to the captivity" (Jeremiah 15:2) — such law also having
been referred to by the Christ: "All they that take the sword shall perish with the sword"
(Matthew 26:52). Those who have spiritual understanding are told they will find the
strength necessary to endure any sufferings if they remind themselves of that law.
Though the righteous on this earth may be tempted to pay back men and women of
violence with violence, they stand forewarned: Such violence is against God and will be
judged accordingly. Mortals are not to determine punishment. Vengeance is God's.
Hence, though the sword may precede the word of Islam, children of God are to keep
their peace during the forthcoming global jihad and know that, at the appointed time,
justice shall proceed from the mouth of God by the sword of Truth alone.
Verses 11 through 15
"And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and
he had two horns like a lamb, but he spake as a dragon. And
he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and
causeth the earth and them which dwelleth therein to worship
the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth
wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on
the earth in the sight of men, and deceiveth them that dwell on
the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which
had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to
give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the
beast should both speak, and to cause that as many as would
not worship the image of the beast should be killed."
That the second beast of Revelation 13 "had two horns like a lamb, but he spake as a
dragon" and that "he maketh fire come down from heaven" (as Elijah did) identifies him
as the great impostor, — the master of deception, — the grand imitator, — the man of
whom "all men shall speak well" (Luke 6:26), — the false prophet, — Islam's long-
awaited Mahdi. That he will exercise "all the power of the first beast" and cause "the
earth and them which dwelleth therein to worship the first beast" further identifies him as
the leading proponent of Islam during the latter days. Through this charismatic and
scornful character, the inhabitants of this world will be deceived to pay homage to the
Devil instead of to the Lord God Almighty.
Verses 16 through 18
"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free
and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their
foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that
had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his
name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count
the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his
number is Six hundred threescore and six."
Here, it is indicated that during the latter times only those who wear the Crescent and the
five-pointed star — the emblem of Moslem power ("the mark of the beast") — or who
have Mohammed (the name of the beast) as one of their own names will be able to carry
out the simplest transactions necessary for daily living.
During the Tribulation (the seven year period that immediately precedes Christ's return to
earth), expect the systematic murdering of those who belong to God (i.e., Jews and
Christians), particularly through beheading (see Revelation 20:4).
It is evident to me that the end time ruler referred to in
Daniel, that soon-to-be-revealed "man of sin, — the son
of perdition" (2 Thessalonians 2:3), will be a follower of
Mohammed: "even him, whose coming is after the
workings of Satan with all power and signs and lying
wonders" (2 Thessalonians 2:9). He will be one with,
and the same as, the second beast whom John described
as "having two horns like a lamb, yet speaking as a
dragon" (Revelation 13:11). It is he who will be the one
to "exercise all the power of the first beast before him,
and cause the earth and them that dwell therein to
worship the first beast" (Revelation 13:12), such first
beast being Islam.
Was Mohammed himself the Antichrist? No.
Mohammed produced testimony of the Antichrist (that
to which the Antichrist will lay claim in order to
authenticate himself). And, Mohammed was the
primogenitor of the Antichrist (in that sense, the two
are one). Yet to come is a final false prophet who will be
the Antichrist. He will stand in Mohammed's stead.
How will we know when the Antichrist has come? When
mosques overflow in many lands and when, in cities and
towns all over the earth, laws are enacted which forbid
buildings to be as high as, or higher than, the minaret of
the mosque. To those who will be living at such a time, I
repeat two things that have been told to me from
heaven: "Beware of the man of whom all men speak
well." And, "The worst woes will come to those who
heap their grief by blood of sheep." (Read Revelation
8:13 through 11:15, 14:6 through 14:12, and 15:1
through 16:21 for a detailed account of those woes.)
Therein lies the trust, protection, and assurance of the
children of God ("the patience and faith of the saints").
To be sure, time will show that Islam is Satan's religion

8. ANSWERS TO POSSIBLE QUESTIONS
A.In the section entitled "How It All Adds Up, " I give
the transliterated Hebrew spelling of the name
Mohammed. How can I explain this transliteration
when the modern Hebrew version of the name has
Yes, there is no Yod (Yud) in the modern Hebrew
version of the name. However, that is not to say
that the name St. John saw in his vision (circa A.D.
95), and recorded as 666 in Revelation 13:18, did
not have a Yod in it. Since the grapheme Yod has
both consonantal and vowel qualities, it may be, at
times, phonetically pronounced somewhat similar
to a "long" English e (accent macron) and, at other
times, like a "short" English e (accent breve). In
addition to Yod having consonantal and/or vowel
qualities, it can even be quiescent. To be sure, the
subscript vowel points used as vowel cues in
modern Hebrew were not used by the ancients.
Hence, it is reasonable, and defensible, to include
Yod as the sixth grapheme/phoneme in
"Mohamed." Since that name did not originate in
ancient Hebrew, modern Hebrew cannot claim to
accurately represent its purest graphemic form
(nor, for that matter, can modern Hebrew
accurately reproduce all phonemes associated with
the ancient Yud and its various dialectical forms).
Moreover, modern transliterators do not always do
a good job; just think of how horribly far the
modern English "Solomon" is from the ancient
B.Mem usually has a value of 40 associated with it.
Why have I assigned a value of 600 to it?
First, what I list as having a value of 600 is a final
Mem, not an initial Mem (which always has a value
of 40). When I lived in Chicago some years ago, I
researched this in the Asher Library at the Spertus
Institute of Jewish Studies. There, I found a
Kabbalistic (Qabbalistic or Cabbalistic) precedence
for assigning a numerical value of 600 to a final
Mem. This is further substantiated in Kabbalah by
Charles Ponce (Quest Books, Wheaton, 1978, page
33, ISBN 0-8356-0510-8), which, incidentally, I
purchased at Spertus.
CWhy do I have the name Mohammed written
It is my belief that the name Mohammed was given
to St. John in cryptographic form. Writing
backwards (which is to say, writing letters in
reverse order) has long been a way to mask, or
hide, words and messages from casual observers,
which I believe was the intent of the Holy Spirit in
the identification of the name that is numerically
identified as 666 in Scripture.
D.Does it make a difference in Gematria (Hebrew or
Jewish kabbalistic numerology) if the Hebrew form
is transliterated from the English spellings
"Mohammed" or "Muhammed?"
No, although there is a phonemic difference
between the "long o" sound (accent macron as in
"Mohammed") and the "oo" sound (diphthong
"oo" as in "Muhammed"), there would be no
numerologic difference between the Hebrew
transliterated forms of "Mohammed" and
"Muhammed" (provided, of course, that the "vav"
or "waw" is still there). To be sure, the modern
Hebrew form of the word, regardless of English
transliteration, is still written with a "vav" or
"waw." That there is a difference in vowel points
between the "long o" and "oo" phonemes in
Hebrew does not change the numeric value of the
grapheme so cued (in this case, "vav"). More
specifically, although the vowel point "cholem"
would be used in the transliterated form of
"Mohammed" and the vowel point "shuwreq"
would be used in the transliterated form of
"Muhammed," the indicated "vav" or "waw" is
present either way and would still have the
numeric value of 6 (six).
E. What about the double letter "m" representation in
"Mohammed?" Does this require that a double
grapheme "mem " be used when that word is
transliterated from English to Hebrew?
No, the use of double letters in English or other
languages that use the Roman alphabet was
instituted more as a convenience for
lexicographers, compositors, publishers, and
linguists who desired convenience in dividing
words by syllables or who wanted to emphasize
that a particular sound was sustained as a bridge
between two vowel-based syllables (syllables are
