Q. Re: ISIS, Islam, And The End Times. How can Islam led by ISIS be the end times dominant religion when the Bible clearly states that there will be an amalgamation of all religions led by the false prophet? ISIS isn’t even representative of most of ISLAM, though it seems to be growing, and I can’t see Israel accepting this Godless religion on any terms.
A. Remember, I didn’t say this brand of Islam will be the dominant religion, I said if they aren’t stopped soon, they could become the vehicle through which the anti-Christ comes to power. In other words they could be his army.
I don’t remember the Bible saying there will be an amalgamation of all religions. I do know it says the whole world will worship the dragon (Satan) and the beast (anti-Christ) in Rev. 13:4-8.
Also, everyone seems to forget that when the anti-Christ officially reveals himself, all the believing Jews will flee (Matt. 24:15). It’s only the unbelievers who will remain. Isaiah 28:15 tells us that in an unsuccessful attempt to save themselves, they will do what everybody thinks they won’t.
You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with Sheol we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.”
The Lord will respond,
“Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with Sheol will not stand. When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it” (Isaiah 28:18).
I believe this speaks of the end times when unbelieving Jews will side with the anti-Christ, hoping to save themselves. And whatever the end times religion is it won’t be Judaism or Christianity. As I’ve said before, after the rapture Islam will be in the best position to become the world’s religion.
