Daniel 8:23 (AMP) | In Context
23 And at the latter end of their kingdom, when the transgressors [the apostate Jews] have reached the fullness [of their wickedness, taxing the limits of God’s mercy], a king of fierce countenance and understanding dark trickery and craftiness shall stand up.
Daniel says: the Jews in the Kingdom (of the time of Daniel Peace be upon him) will be apostate Jews (Zionists-Lawless Jews)
Daniel 11:21 ESV In his place shall arise a contemptible person to whom royal majesty has not been given. He shall come in without warning and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
As said in Bible above: The Israeli rulers of these days are not Royal Majesties, but they are democratically elected ones! And they are attacking and invading Palestinian land with tyranny and injustice!
Daniel 7:25 ESV He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.
According to Bible, it is Messiah (peace be upon him) who will gather the tribes of Israel, not a democratic leaders and rulers whom the royal majesty has not been given!, such ones who changed the time and overridden the work of Messiah!, are anti-Messiah! According to Bible!
As mentioned above: they are rebellious apostate Jews: 2 Thessalonians 2:3 ESV Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,
As rebellion is apostasy and apostates will be killed according to the rule of Torah and Quran, when Mahdi and Messiah return, they will fight and kill apostate Jews of Israel:
Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)
Because the creation of Israel in 1949 by those whom royal majesty was not given (Parliament) is rebellion to the judge, to the verdict of the high priest (Christ/Messiah) who is the real one and final judge on this earth, who will gather Israelis!:
This was the force of Anti-Christ, who weaken Monarchies of Europe and around the world in the name of Nationalism, Communism ,liberty and democracy!
All this ideologies came from apostate Jews and apostate Christians!
The same order/verdict in Deuteronomy 17:12 is given in Hadith as well:
All the apostate Jews, apostate Christians and tyrannical Muslims will be killed by the Holy Army of Mahdi and Messiah (Peace be upon them)
Sahih Muslim (41: the Book pertaining the turmoil): Ibn ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them until even a stone would say: Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew (hiding himself behind me) ; kill him.
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.
Daniel 8:23 (KJ21) | In Context |
23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance and understanding dark sentences shall stand up.
But it is not Mahid (A.S). It may be Sufyani (Allah Knows best):
Abu Hurayrah has narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
A man will emerge from the depths of Damascus. He will be called Sufyani. Most of those who follow him will be from the tribe of Kalb. He will kill by ripping the stomachs of women and even kill the children. A man from my family will appear in the Haram (Makkah), the news of his advent will reach the Sufyani and he will send to him one of his armies. He (referring to the Mahdi) will defeat them. They will then travel with whoever remains until they come to a desert and they will be swallowed. None will be saved except the one who had informed the others about them. (Mustadrak Al-Hakim).
Daniel 8:24 He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy those who are mighty, the holy people.
Al Walid, son of Muslim, said:
“The Mahdi will not come until The Sufyaani is established.”
Imam Ali said: “The horses of The Sufyaani will go to Kufa, and he will send his army against the dwellers of Khurasan (Afghanistan). (At that time) the people of Khurasan will demand the Mahdi. He that meets with the Hashimi with the Black Banners at his front is Shuayb, the son of Salih who will engage The Sufyaani at the Gate of Istakhr — between them there will be a tremendously fierce battle and the Black Banners will win, but the horses of The Sufyaani will escape. It is at that time that the people will wish for the Mahdi, because they need him.”
Imam Ali said: “The Sufyaani will overcome Syria, then between them there will be a battle in Kurkisa until the birds of the air are filled and the savage animals of the earth are filled from their perishing. Then, an opening will occur at their rear, and a group will come from them until they enter the land of Khurasan. The horses of As-Sufyaani will come demanding the people of Khurasan, and they will slay the followers of the Family of Muhammad in Kufa, then the people of Khurasan will come seeking the Mahdi.”
Daniel 8:25 He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.
According to Christians Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) coming as the Mighty King on earth, not as a great prince.
Prince of princes refer to Imam Mahdi (A.S) as his period is 7 or 9 years which is less than of the Christ’s period (40 years)
Son of Masood said:”When commerce and roads are blocked and trials increase, seven knowledgeable people will come from different directions without previous appointment. Each will receive the allegiance of over three hundred men until they meet in Mecca. The seven will meet and asked one another; ‘What brought you here?’ They will reply: ‘In Search of the man upon whose hand the trials will be calmed, and for whom Constantinople will be opened. We know him by his name, his father’s name, his mother’s name, and his army.’ So the seven will agree upon this and search for him then find him in Mecca. So they will ask him: ‘Are you so and so, son of so and so?’ He will reply: ‘No, I am a man from the supporters.’ And escape from them, so they will describe him to people in their midst that are both righteous and knowledgeable and it will be said to them: ‘The one whom you seek was in your company, and he will go to Medina.’ So they will search for him in Medina but at that time he will be in Mecca. So they will search for him in Mecca and say to him: ‘You are so and so, son of so and so, and your mother is so and so, daughter of so and so, and in you are the signs of such and such, and such and such. You escaped from us once so stretch out your hands and we will pledge our allegiance to you.’ So he will say: ‘I am not your companion.’ Then he will escape from them so they will search for him in Medina when he has returned to Mecca, then they will find him in Mecca beside Al Rukn and say to him: ‘Our sins will be upon you and our blood upon your neck if you do not stretch out your hand so that we may pledge our allegiance! The army of the Sufyaani is coming demanding us in which there is a man from Jurm. So he will sit between Al Rukn and Al Makam and stretch out his hand and allegiance will be pledged to him. So, Allah will sow love of him in the chests of the people and he will lead a nation that are lions during the day and worshippers at night.” (Found in reference to Ali son of Abu Talib)
Hadhrat Ali narrates that the Messenger of Allah said: “Even if only a day remains for Qiyamah to come, yet Allah will surely send a man from my family who will fill this world with such justice and fairness, just as it initially was filled with oppression.” (Abu Dawood)
Narrated by Hudhayfah, The Prophet said: “Woe to this nation from the dictatorship of kings! Why do they kill and make pious people fear except those who obey them, and the pure believer soothes them with his tongue but resists them with his heart? If Allah wishes to revive Islam in might He will break the back of every stubborn tyrant — He is Able to do anything and can reform the nation after its corruption. O Hudhayfah, if there remains but one day left in the world Allah will prolong that day until a man from the Family of my House will govern and fierce battles will be in his hands, and Islam will spread. Allah does not change His Promise and He is quick to recompense.” (Abu Nuaym, At-Tabarani, and Abu Amru Ad Dani.)
So, Christians, when you read scriptures, read with truthfulness and straight path. So that you won’t get confused about Mahdi (A.S) and Sufiyani!
The Anti-Christ:2 Thessalonians 2:4 ESV Who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.
Anti-Christ is not Mahdi! as mentioned earlier, the Bible verses represent Sufiyani and Anti-Christ is Christian version of Messiah, who is god in flesh, god in human and god in three (Satan-Father, ghost-evil spirit and Anti-Christ- false god in flesh incarnated)
Because, Muslims do not believe and Islam do not teach:
neither God is in Flesh
nor God has take human birth (He is neither born nor begotten, Quran chapter 112)
nor God is in three
nor God can be seen with earthly eye
And Muslims worship, One God, neither born nor begotten, in the Temple Mount today, (ie Al
Aqsa Masjid and Dome of the Rock)
So when the Anti-Christ false god in human flesh, comes, and attack Masjid Al Aqsa and Dome of the Rock(i.e temple mount(, the House of Allah (true God) and will proclaim himself to be god! as mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:4 ESV Who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.
Note that: temple/Church/Mosque is different words for the same meaning The House God, where God Alone is worshiped and it must be same in all Temples/Churches of God:, which means you cannot have god worshiped in three in some churches and in some God is One and some God is two!
Because God is not a god of confusions:1 Corinthians 14:33 ESV For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints,
So those who believe god is in flesh and in human will follow him!, obviously it is not Muslims!
Also Muslims do not have mixed practices, lawlessness from the Cup of demons and pagans incorporated into the cup of God!
So it is clear now, who is Mahdi, who is anti-Christ, who is Sufiyani and who are apostates!
