Many Christians Will Fall For The Antichrist and Get Deceived By His Religion

By Walid and Theodore Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

The typical westerner who reads up on anti-Jihad literature usually concludes a limited bullet point view on Islam that it’s moon god worship or that Muslims want 70 virgins in heaven and that Muhammad had sex with a 9 year old and conclude that Allah is not the same god as the Bible.

Fact is that even some of the most ardent anti-Jihadists westerners can easily fall by not obeying one instruction which tells us to beware that “by peace he will deceive many”.

Most do not connect the dots to the biblical description in which Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah and John affirmed that the harlot religion of Islam is the process of preparing the Muslim to become God (2 Thessalonians 2) and that “peace” is the main method that Satan attracts them to acquiesce to Islam’s religion.

Yesterday we wrote NEW EVIDENCE DISCOVERED PROVES The Muslim Antichrist Will Come Into The Temple Of God, And Declare Himself To Be God regarding Sufi Islam and how it is the major form of Islam which teaches the theology of Fana in which the Muslim becomes God himself, a theology which consumes one-fifth of the Muslim world who are touted in the West as the most peaceful of Muslims and is why such deception did not only encompass the U.S. government, but Christians as well.

What is quite astounding is how I had Christian friends in the West who joined me to spearhead the war against the Islamic Antichrist, while at the same time uninentionally promoting the very religion of Antichrist.

Joel Richardson, who writes in both of his books (1) not only praised the foremost Muslim scholar behind Sufism, Jala al Din al Rumi complementing him and asking his readers to learn from the Antichrist religion’s positive aspects stating:

“Maybe you say that we cannot find any goodness and light in the religion of the Antichrist. But believe it or not, you can”.

Amazing.

It even got much worse since what Richardson promoted “methods of outreach to Muslims, but rather the spirit in which God desires us to reach out to Muslims in order that not only they, but also we, might be transformed”. Richardson, who is oblivious to Sufism uses the very man, Rumi the father of Sufism as the essence and beacon for such transformation:

Jalal al Din al Rumi was one of Islam’s greatest mystics. He practiced a mystical form of Islam known as Sufiism. Rumi often spoke of God as “the Beloved” or “the Friend.” Sufis’ such as Rumi also placed far more emphasis on Jesus as their model for life than other Muslims. One cannot read many of Rumi’s writings without feeling as though he was very close to being a Christian. There is at least one quote of Rumi’s that I have truly come to appreciate. Rumi said, “One day I was going along looking to see in people the shining of the Friend, so I would recognize the Ocean in a drop.”

How this shows love for Jesus by Rumi is astounding, he continues in his admiration of Rumi:

Rumi attempted to see God in all of His creation, and particularly in every one of His creatures.

Richardson’s fascination with Rumi goes too far to even admire the very religion of Antichrist’s peaceful form of Islam, Sufism:

Maybe you say that we cannot find any goodness and light in the religion of the Antichrist. But believe it or not, you can. And here’s the reason: Islam is made of Muslims. And Muslims are people who are created in the image of God. And many of them are genuine God seekers. As such, even in Islam there are things that Christians can learn from.”

I finally had to detach from Richardson’s amateur approach who after visiting Turkey he complemented Adnan Oktar who spearheads the very expansion of Sufi Islam complementing him as a “man of peace” in which I had to finally rebuke him. Richardson’s naiveté advanced the major and main voice in Sufi Islam, Rumi, writing how he cannot read his Islamic writings without thinking that he is more of a Christian.

So lets look to the writings of Rumi, and see how close to Christianity his writings actually were. Firstly, Rumi’s writings promote pedophilia. Rumi writes:

“A lawyer was once beating a boy.
‘Why are you beating him?’ he was asked.
‘What crime has he committed?’
‘You don’t know what this fool does. He spoils everything.’
‘What does he do?’ someone asked.
‘Of what sin is he guilty?’
‘He runs away at the moment of climax,’ the lawyer replied.
What he meant was that when he was beating, the boy’s image ran away and spoiled the lawyer’s climax. There is no doubt the lawyer was in love with his mental image of the boy, but the boy was quite unaware of that fact. …Even if misguided and misdirected love for an image can produce ecstasy, it is nothing like the mutual love enjoyed with the actual beloved.” (2)

The deviancies of Rumi, Richardson’s example of good Muslim character who ‘got so close to Christianity’, and, according to Richardson, one ‘who can barely be distinguished from a Christian,’ extend from pedophilia to zoophilia, or beastiality. Rumi writes in one of his poetic writings:

“There was a maidservant who had cleverly trained a donkey to perform the services of a man. From a gourd, she had carved a flanged device to fit on the donkey’s penis, to keep him from going to far into her. She had fashioned just to the point of her pleasure, and she greatly enjoyed the arrangement, as often as she could! She thrived, but the donkey a little thin and tired looking. The mistress began to investigate. One day she peaked through a crack in the door and saw the animal’s marvelous member and the delight of the girl stretched under the donkey. She said nothing. Later, she knocked on the door and called the maid out on an errand, a long and complicated errand. I want go into details. The servant knew what was happening, though. “Ah, my mistress,” she thought to herself, “you should not send away the expert.” When you begin to work without full knowledge, you risk your life. Your shame keeps you from asking me about the gourd. But you must have that to join with this donkey. There’s a trick you don’t know! But the woman was too fascinated with her idea to consider any danger. She led the donkey in and closed the door thinking, “With no one around I can shout with my pleasure.” She was dizzy with anticipation, her vagina glowing and singing like a nightingale. She arranged the chair under the donkey, as she had seen the girl do. She raised her legs and pulled him into her. Her fire kindled more, and the donkey politely pushed as she urged him to, pushed through and into her intestines, and, without a word, she died. The chair fell one way, and she the other. The room was smeared with blood.” (3)

It can’t get any sicker than this.

As to Rumi’s theology, he was the main Muslim scholar to introduce how a Muslim, even Antichrist himself would promote himself as both “a servant of God” and “being God” at the same time, and by that, this fulfills both Daniel 11 and 2 Thessalonians 2. In Daniel 11 it states that Antichrist serves a god of fortresses (war) and advances the glory of this god through warfare while in 2 Thessalonians 2 it declares that Antichrist sits in the temple of God making himself to be God.

So how could he ‘serve a god’ and at the same time proclaim himself ‘to be this very god’?

All this contradiction of being a “servant of God” and say “I am God” at the same time in Islam was the invention of non-other than Rumi, Richardson’s hero:

“And so it is with the enlightenment ones, those who declares, “I am God.” Anyone who says “I am the servant of God” asserts the reality of two existences, one for himself and the other for God. But he who says “I am God” — and has realized the deepest levels of unity within his being” (4)

And here are two documentaries showing Rumi’s Sufism is still alive and well in how they achieve this “divine unity” to become gods:

Joel Richardson and others can easily fall right into complementing Antichrist’s religion by deceptions of being “peaceful” by not understanding Sufism or who Rumi was and by that they have no business in dealing with Muslims who woo westerners with flattery.

But far from Wahhabism, Sufism is the most dangerous, not only that because it teaches tremendous violence since it was the Sufis who are the muscle and sinew of the faith advancing it to become the world’s second-largest religion. Sufis are not simply a sect of Islam, but rather heirs of an ancient mystical tradition within both the Sunni and Shia branches of the faith combining their inward quest with war and expansion worldwide.

Sufism is not only the ecumenical force in which it is the best uniting factor between Shiite and Sunni Muslims, but is the best link to satanic worship in using Shamanism in which Sunni Sufis adore Shiite icons and like Shiites are mystical and charismatic and even provides a link between Islam and shamanism.

It is no wonder why Islam is the Mother of Harlots which combines all heresies and cults into one world religion. It has elements of Christianity, which woos westerners by saying they love Jesus. It also has elements of Judaism which woos Jews and is anti-Trinitarian which woos oneness Christian cults. It is iconoclast which woos many Evangelicals and it has Al-Qada Wal-Qadar (pre-destination) which woos Calvinists. It also has pagan elements from Zoroastrianism and Buddhism. It is perfectly packaged to truly be a one world religion.

In contemporary Muslim culture Sufism introduced the old practice of shamanism as it was combined with elements of Sufism in order to adapt to wider Islamic society. Shamanistic Sufi Islam thus expands deeply into Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and the Balkans and shows how the Muslim shaman, like his Siberian counterpart, cultivates personal relations with spirits to supposedly help individuals through what they believe as healing and divination. This ‘Islamized shamanism’, covering the geographic areas of modern-day Turkey, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kirghizstan, northern Afghanistan, the Turkoman province of Iran and the Uygur district of Xinjian province of China will play a major role in the end times and we predict that the Antichrist is likely to be Sufi. This region is the very bulk of the armies of Ezekiel 38 and this explains further why Gog is the Antichrist who will declare he serves God while proclaiming himself to be God.

In this video, notice how there is an orb of light in the middle of the circle on which is the name of Allah is placed. This illustration represents Richardson’s model Rumi who was the one to introduce this theology of the Muslim coming into the presence of Allah, and eventually reaching Fana (annihilation) and becoming God:

At times things get lonely when it is difficult to find westerners who comprehend the deception. Today we have so many unlearned Christians and self-proclaimed “experts” on the Bible and its prophecies when what is lacking is understanding the history behind Christianity’s struggle with Islam to even hatred of the very history of Christianity. Richardson writes as evidence against the Crusaders stating:

“Anders Breivik modeled himself after the Dominionist Christian crusaders”

Truth was finally discovered that Breivik, the terrorist was a Nazi who truly hated Christianity altogether including the very Crusaders whom Richardson abhors. Breivik claimed to have used my works in order to paint us as complacent with his crimes. CNN attacked us vehemently days prior to Breivik’s massacre saying that I was “never a terrorist” to only link us to Breivik a day later as being terrorist. Which is it? Was I a terrorist or not? This alone shows the depravity of the liberal media. Yet Christians go right along with such media in denouncing the Crusaders as evil doers. The rule of thumb is that whatever the liberal supports, look out, and whatever the liberal hates look into.

But instead of Richardson be apt to know the cunningness of devils, he had to find something to express such ridicule to anything that has an apostolic succession as if Copts in Egypt, Orthodox in Russia and Catholics in Rome are all on the wrong side of Christian history who are given the title by Richardson as “Dominionists” and that the only form of Christianity is what we find as non-Dominionist Evangelicalism in the West.

One could imagine Christ cursing one side of Christianity, the apostolic succession, while he will only elevate the ones without it even though the later did not exist for fifteen centuries, an issue that no one in history can explain since accepting such nonsense would mean that Christ failed His ministry when He said that “I will build my church” and that the very “lighthouse” was dim for over a millennia and half until Luther and Calvin showed up. Its the issue that puzzled me for two decades until I examined the Copts, Orthodox and Catholics for myself to finally learn the missing element: History.

Who can answer this dilemma was lost and will never be found, even though it was Christ who promised all the lost that they can all be found, if they so desired to knock, seek and find.

While I find so many great Protestant examples I so much admire, Sir Robert Anderson and Sir Edmond Allenby who emulated the Crusaders capturing Jerusalem from the Ottomans and finally giving a crushing blow to that Islamic Antichrist. Yet so many have turned away from the militarism of old Evangelicals to this new form of appeasement and even loosing their virginity by laying with the devil who laced there theology with a potion that put them completely to sleep.

Its a shame.

I thank God when I get slandered by the media and by my very own brethren, for it is slander that had me search into the most slandered and hated elements within the faith we call Christianity. Ask yourself, who is the most supposedly ‘exposed’ and hated sect of Christianity? Search for them, and there, you will find the truth.

    Mr. Shoebat, after reading this, I’m second-guessing, buying Mr. Richardson’s books on the Islamic Antichrist to use as references for my bible study. If he’s that easily fooled, then I don’t know if his writings on that topic are valid. Do you think it’s wise of me to take this as a precaution with his materials? What do you suggest?

  • 1Bobby8

    Yes, go to the comments on websites like WND when their subject is the Pope or anything Catholic and you’ll see the venom and hatred coming out of all the anti-Catholic “Christians” who distort everything of the Catholic Church and its history.

    • They can’t be bothered with the concept of actual history or primary documents. There was a time when Academia and religion had no quarrel. Protestantism, especially the primitivism of Evangelicals, destroyed that.

      • 1Bobby8

        Yea, because if they did that, the protesters would have nothing to protest about.

    • koolmom21

      Yes, like Walid would say they are lazy Christians. Lazy Christians don’t do their own research choosing instead to listen to lies and running with them. God’s blessings

      • 1Bobby8

        They listen to the lies because that’s what they want to hear…God bless you too koolmom.

        • koolmom21

          True!

  • koolmom21

    Knowing how much hate comes against me just because I am a catholic I find comfort in:
    Gospel According to Saint John Chapter 15
    [18] If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you. [19] If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. [20] Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also.

    • Orthodox and Catholics suffer for the sake of the Lord. It’s okay.

        True! It is okay but as you well know; it can be so hard at times. God’s blessings

    Walid and Theodore, I hope you don’t mind me asking but did you try to reason with Mr. Richardson and if so did he hold strong to his position?

    • shoebat

      Everyone asks this. I reasoned with him in the past. For example, when he complemented Oktar, I called him and gave him a mouth full on how stupid this was telling him “there you are supposedly fighting Antichrist and its false peace, yet you promote the top Antichrist as being “peace””? He took the part out. But again, and again, he has a problem with seeing it necessary to kiss arse to the point I finally had enough. A breeze will sway him and a wind will chase him. I finally decided enough with babysitting and its time for public rebuke. If one does something over and over without heeding to advice, one is to let go. Theo dialogued with him on Christian militancy in which he was clueless. He knows very basic history.

      Its the same issue with Calvary Chapel. Folks ask, “did you try to be fair and reason with them?” Boy, little do these folks know. I sat with Churck Smith before he died. I spoke in his church. I spoke with his top man. He was not only evil, but worked hard to stop our work to Rescue Christians. His name is Roger Wing. Wing even called pastors to stop me from sending our message to the Calvary Chapel. The whole thing slithers with power and control. They even got rid of Chuck’s brother, who was a righteous man. I met him. The issues are so bad it takes a whole program. Its power and control and nothing more. Don’t get me going. I have sat with the top and have seen the power grab, all by using a man from my village who simply rode a donkey.

      • koolmom21

        I guess I knew you try to reason with him. My question was more if he listened or not. It must be hard for you and your son after all these years to see him fall for satan’s deceptions. My mother believed “you plant the seed”. I have seen it to be true and I am a firm believer in fertile ground.
        I will pray for yours and Theodore’s words to one day take root in him.
        I am happy God never let this Roger Wing stop Rescue Christians.
        “Power and control”; the cause of satan’s fall from grace. When someone listens to the devil that is what he puts in their hearts. I am sure satan hates Rescue Christians and shoebat.com.
        I love how you put things IE “all by using a man from my village who simply rode a donkey.”
        Thank you for warning us and I appreciate you for replying. God’s blessings

  • dovari

    Thanks again, Mr. Shoebat for this atricle. I did not read “Antichrist, Islam’s Awaited Messiah”. So thought Joel and you are sailing in the same boat. “Mideast Beast” by Joel Richardson is the only one I read. Hope Mr. Joel will kindly revise his views.
    After reading “NEW EVIDENCE DISCOVERED PROVES The Muslim Antichrist Will Come Into The Temple Of God, And Declare Himself To Be God”, I realized that Sufism is no different from pantheistic Hinduism.
    Somebody said something like, “All religions are superficially the same but fundamentally different”, However, after reading that article, I realized something like, “All other religions are fundamentally the same but Christianity alone stands apart and unique for what Christ is and what He has done on the cross.”
    I cannot thank you enough for the truths you are bringing to light.
    God bless

    Well, liberals flow around in a rose colored haze and believe in love, understanding they are food for enemies in hard times

      Well, we should call all Liberals by their proper job listing : Zombie Food.

  • Softly Bob

    I don’t think that any REAL Christians will take the Mark of the Beast even if they are deceived at first. They will eventually come to their senses. God doesn’t reward or punish people according to their abilities to solve riddles.
    Many Christians will be fooled by the AntiChrist but eventually their own instincts will save them. Those who understand prophecy will realize the dangers quicker than those who don’t and may even be able to warn others, possibly at the risk of greater persecution. In fact the Bible mentions that those who don’t take the mark will not be able to buy or sell. I think the ones who will be beheaded will be those who are in a position to reject the Beast and preach against him, people like us who can already spot the Muslim connection.
    Only those who reject God completely and whose hearts have hardened will actually take the mark.

  • Trevor

    I need to see a doctor. Watching the 1st video, my jaw came unhinged, as I have seen and experienced something similar to this when I was a member of the charismatic church. Many time, it felt like electricity was flowing through me, and I often felt euphoric. Watching this video, I am now wondering if I have experienced demon possession, even if it was a brief encounter.

  • shoebat

    Len,

    Tell me what is the difference between these two statements:

    “He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women”

    “He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor desire women”

    Once you discover the difference ask yourself. Why do you read the text the way you do?

    • God has a sense of humour he takes a non-native English speaker and uses him to correct native English speakers on reading English.

      • Len

        I sure but suppose this was directed to me … i

        James I’m certainly not an English scholar … but I can read and write and speak some English…Lol,… I also can make mistakes.

        But here I cite an English scholar Matthew Henry who was a skilful thinker and writer and a true wordsmith of the English language and I can confidently assure you that if he were here he could correct most anyone on their English grammar.

        What Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the whole bible says about Daniel 11:37 is this:

        “(3.) He shall, contrary to the way of the heathen, disregard the god of his fathers, v. 37. Though an affection to the religion of their ancestors was, among the heathen, almost as natural to them as the desire of women (for, if you search through the isles of Chittim, you will not find an instance of a nation that has changed its gods, Jer. 2:10, Jer. 2:11 ), yet Antiochus shall not regard the god of his fathers;he made laws to abolish the religion of his country, and to bring in the idols of the Greeks. And though his predecessors had honoured the God of Israel, and given great gifts to the temple at Jerusalem (2 Mac. 3:2, 2 Mac. 3:3 ), he offered the greatest indignities to God and his temple. His not regarding the desire of women may denote his barbarous cruelty (he shall spare no age or sex, no, not the tender ones) or his unnatural lusts, or, in general, his contempt of every thing which men of honour have a concern for, or it might be accomplished in something we meet not with in history. Its being joined to his not regarding the god of his fathers intimates that the idolatries of his country had in them more of the gratifications of the flesh than those of other countries (Lucian has written of the Syrian goddesses), and yet that would not prevail to keep him to them. (4.) He shall set up an unknown god, a new god,”

        Henry speaks of the Antichrist’s “unnatural lusts” and “his contempt of everything … of honour”

        I’m sort of like King Agrippa in regards to Walid’s view: I’m almost persuaded but not completely.

        27King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? I know that thou believest. 28Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian. 29And Paul said, I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except these bonds.

        Blessings

        • Hi Len,

          This sort of backs the point I was making in my post. My post wasn’t a comment on your English ability, rather the point I was making is that people who in general speak English and use English perfectly can have their ability to read plain English affected because of Presuppositions in their thinking. I include myself in this. In order for God to correct our thinking sometimes he must use people from the outside to clear up for us what we got wrong. Just like Paul says God will use the gentiles to bring the Jews to Christ.

          God Bless

    “I get the same as an Evangelical, some from liberal Christians but a lot more from atheists etc. ”

    Boy your comparing apples with oranges.

    Try switching even as a test to Catholic and see what happens to you. I get accused that I am Jesuit for simply defending false anti-Catholic diatribe and I have NEVER in my life seen so much vitriol from even Muslims and if in doubt just peruse my name in the comment section and the blogs.

      God bless you Walid for what you do. You have strengthened, renewed and taught me so much about defending the Catholic faith against the lies said about it…I might add that I learned so much from commenters of this site also like Rudy, Julie, koolmom,Lidia and others…God bless you all.

    • j7hancock

      Yes, this is very true. I also knew some protestant pastors who thought they wanted to reach out to the Catholic churches,but when they did, and one brave catholic priest showed up, they wouldn’t listen to this priest and chided him. I was thoroughly embarassed, as a protestant. I tried voicing my opinion about it and asking them to just listen, and I was derided for it and laughed at.

    Its clear, an exact translation is: And regarding the god of his fathers he will not honor [him] and the desire of women [including] every other god he will not honor so that he over all of them magnifies himself.

    “and the desire of women [including] every other god he will not honor”

    So its clear, its women’s desires which he will not honor. This is in conjunction with Genesis 3:15 in which the devil and by extension, Antichrist, will have enmity against women so that he will not honor them. This has nothing to do with homosexuality.

    The few translations that err do it because they impose the ancient pre-Messiah rabbinic interpretation, not text, that since women wanted to give birth to Messiah that they would not be honored, but today no woman wants to give birth to Messiah.

    This is an old outmoded interpretation which was somewhat imposed on the translation.

    As far as commentaries, many get it wrong because they too impose a traditional interpretation.

    Focus on exactly what the text says and trust the majority translations.

  • Pamela Sage

    Walid, I have started into your Case For Islamophobia, which I find a good follow-up to Andrew McCarthy’s The Grand Jihad but even more insightful. You’ve really opened my eyes about the Sufis. I found the quote you bolded about Al-Banna’s Sufi beliefs disturbing. Mr. Richardson is not aware that Sufi affinities are at the stem of the Muslim Brotherhood?

    Also, I’ve been Protestant since childhood, but have come to a place where I am leary of being confined by extra-Biblical doctrines. Even while I was still active in my former church, I was disturbed by the insistence on Pre-Trib Rapture. It seemed to have less to do with scripture than with the idea that Christians somehow do not deserve to go through tribulation. It frightened me then and even more then that Christians would fall away just as Scripture predicts if they were not to be Raptured before persecution starts. I’m realizing now that all who rely on Christ for salvation need to band together to stand strong. It’s with our fellow Christians rather than Muslims that we need to seek common ground. Christ is not going to be asking us the denomination to which we belong when we stand before Him. I’m trying to conjure up my courage to visit the Greek Orthodox Church in my area. It would be a huge change for me, but the idea of prostrating myself does make sense. I need to deal with my pride and prostrate myself before my Lord a whole lot more than I have done. to this point.

    Ugh… this is going to sound like I made this up, but believe it or not, Mr Shoebat, I’d decided TEN MINUTES before I read this article to buy Richardson’s book to see how it stacked up to what I’m reading in yours….

    Hope this will clear things up.

  • We see hate comments coming from all denominations , but not all of these are lost ones, some are being mislead.. Walid had help many to seeing the truths. I thank God for Walid’s help. Also for Theo’s help… Those not believing in prophecy will be the ones in the dark.

    Interesting detail on Joel Richardson, I was unaware of that danger. The Whirling Devish reminds me of hard rock and roll, and the head banging that occurs. ‘Ecstatic sessions like this are open to everyone’ the first video said. How true. Make your self dizzy so you lose control of your mind and body and satan can enter.

    I had a similar thought that people might turn against all religion due violent Islam. Like throwing the baby out with the bath water. Some already say all religions are morally equivalent (and all are foolish).

    Welcome to our world Adharsigh, the seed is planted in thy heart and the only thing that will happen is that as a tree, you will grow and produce fruit. Praise God.

    Orwell or Huxley? Depend on your answer, it can describe how you perceive Christians today and the end times scenario.

    Wow, Walid / Theodore: Reading your blog is an education. Thank you.

    What you have to say about Richardson is very disappointing. I thought he had more sense. Sigh.
