Q. I was doing some research into Mystery Babylon and came across three videos which make me wonder if it is possible (or probable) that the anti-Christ could come from Kurdistan? Have you ever done any research into this possibility? It could explain how the Muslims could accept the anti-Christ as the Mahdi.
A. The two reasons I’ve connected the anti-Christ with Islam is because it will far and away be the largest post rapture religion on Earth and Muslim prophecies of al Mahdi are strikingly similar to Christian prophecies of the anti-Christ. The main difference is in their prophecies he’s a good guy and in ours he’s the ultimate bad guy.
But remember, the Bible says that all unbelievers will accept the anti-Christ no matter where he comes from. They will do this because Satan will empower him with abilities that appear to be supernatural, and God will send them a strong delusion to believe him (2 Thes. 2:9-12).
The bottom line is, we don’t have to worry about how this group or that group could follow him. According to Rev. 13:8 everyone who is not a believer will line up behind him.
