On the quest to find out the name of the god of the Antichrist, so few see the obvious: “But he shall worship the god Maozim in his place: and a god whom his fathers knew not, he shall worship with gold, and silver, and precious stones, and things of great price” (Daniel 11:38, The Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible).
The ticket to finding the name of the god of the Antichrist has been etched from time immemorial by the prophet Daniel: Maozim, which will also reveal the religion of Antichrist as well: Islam.
So few were able to see this. This Maozim, is in the The Douay-Rheims Bible (1609) which honored the Hebrew is the oldest full Roman Catholic Bible translation in English, making it older than the KJV.
But such reference gets many to shroud the obvious since today like the yesteryears, we are dealing with denominational divisivenesses which causes the name to remain hidden. For example, one major leader of the Reformation in Switzerland, Huldrych Zwingli wrote: “The Eucharist is the idol of Moazim, which, according to Daniel, we have worshipped in the Holy Place, and is true idolatry” (Zwingli).
While there is zero reference in the text about the Eucharist, the ani-Popes were notorious in reading into verses what verses do not say. Instead of looking at the literal, they would wedge their prejudices to declare things that are not of God. The Puritans, for their hatred of the monarchy, even changed the Lord’s Prayer, instead of “Thy Kingdom Come,” to “thy commonwealth come”:
“The court of king’s bench was called the court of public bench. So cautious on this head were some of the republicans, that, it is pretended, in reciting the Lord’s prayer, they would not say, “thy kingdom come,” but always, “thy commonwealth come.” (David Hume, History of England, Vol. 8, ch LIX, P.184)
While it was pure prejudice that caused such blasphemies, to someone like myself, who came out of Islam into the light of Christianity, and one who holds no such prejudices, when we read this text, anyone with the knowledge of semitic languages can see the obvious, Maozim is both a literal name and as in all semitic names, also has meaning (which the other translations state) also applies: “defense,” “fortress,” “fortresses,” “helmet,” “protection,” “refuge,” “safety,” “strength,” “strong,” “stronghold,” and “strongholds” (see Strong’s Concordance).
Any doubting Thomas can plug in any search engine “Allah Al-Mu’izz” can examine, not just that this is one of the names of Allah, but is also the same meaning which exactly matches the hebrew Maozim.
Indeed, he is Maozim (Al-Mu’izz), for the Antichrist “honors a God of fortresses,” who is a God of war and the sword while his name, literally in Hebrew, Moazim, a semitic name, is also in the Arabic Al-Mu’izz (Allah Al-Mu’izz الله المعز) is one of the ninety nine official names of Allah in Islam and Maozim also has the exact meaning in the Arabic: “to be mighty, potent, strong, powerful …”
Nathaniel West in his Daniel’s Great Prophecy, one hundred and seventeen years ago (1898) gets it when he wrote:
“Allah Maozim’ the god of fortresses or strongholds, placing here his confidence, whether in the strongholds of the Orontes, Nile, Euphrates, Tigris, or Bosphorus, — in Syria, Egypt, Macedonia, or Asia Minor, — (the parted empire of Alexander) — honoring “Allah” with “gold, silver, precious stones, and costly things, — a god unknown to his ancestors and whose religion he would propagate by the sword, procuring for his strongholds garrisons of people who acknowledged his strange god, increasing them with glory while putting to the sword all others, causing them to rule over the many, and because needing money for war, dividing the land he conquers, for the sake of gain.” This the meaning of this difficult verse. Such the three great characters of “the King”: The first was not seen in Antiochus to the extent here predicted. The second was seen, in his butchery of infants in Jerusalem, his treatment of the Maccabean mother and her sons, and his inhuman conduct everywhere. The third was seen in the confidence he placed in fortresses, and in the propagation of his religion by the sword. But yet, the full reality of all awaits the future and the final Antichrist.” (Nathaniel West, Daniel’s Great Prophecy, page 176, (1898)
The Antichrist, according to West, is a man who stems from “Alexander’s Kingdom”. It is not Europe as some Protestant prejudices proclaimed. The issue of Antichrist should not divide, but unite us while we disagree on matters of theology. The Antichrist is one who establishes “strongholds of the Orontes, Nile, Euphrates, Tigris, or Bosphorus, — in Syria, Egypt, Macedonia, or Asia Minor” and is one who advances the glory of “Allah Maozim” or in Arabic, “Allah Al-Mu’izz”.
The oldest reference to “Allah” (as Shoebat.com revealed), according to Kenneth J. Thomas, was discovered in Northern and Southern Arabia, the cradle of Allah and Islam, dating as far back to the fifth century B.C. The beginning of the Epic of Atrahasis describes Allah as how all of the gods labored endlessly in grueling work, under the rule of the patron deity Enlil or Elil. But as Lucifer’s rebellion, revolted and was one deity of “violence and revolution” named Allah (spelled by the experts as Alla), as the following inscription recounts:
Then Alla made his voice heard and spoke to the gods his brothers,’ Come! Let us carry Elil, the counselor of gods, the warrior, from his dwelling. Now, cry battle! Let us mix fight with battle!’ The gods listened to his speech, set fire to their tools, put aside their spades for fire, their loads for the fire-god, they flared up. (Atrahasis, tablet i, OBV i, i-ii, trans. Stephanie Dalley, in her Myths from Mesopotamia, p. 10, underline mine.)
It was Erdogan of Asia Minor, Turkey, who once said regarding his Jihad for Allah that the “helmet” being the domes of mosques honoring Allah the god of “bayonets”.
While no one can be one hundred percent certain that Erdogan is the Antichrist, here is a man who has not rejected deification, declaring himself to be God, but until if he sits in the Temple of God, we must closely monitor. And just yesterday, the Gatestone Institute wrote of Erdogan’s dream under the title The Sultan Rules, “Erdogan is not happy with the powers the Turkish constitution grants him. He wants more.” The Antichrist gains his seat by changing the laws (Daniel 7:25), Erdogan “Once he has given orders, there should not be judicial, constitutional or parliamentary checks and balances. He will become the first ballot-box Sultan of the Turkish Empire of his dreams.”
These are not our words, but the words of secularist experts. Gatestone adds: “367 parliamentary votes are required to pass a constitutional amendment in parliament without a referendum, and at least 330 to make Erdogan an elected Sultan.”
We have been tracking Turkey for at least two decades and have predicted that Turkey will return to Ottoman hegemony and will revive the Ottoman sultanate. Gatestone concludes: “It is election time in Turkey. On June 7, the Turks will go to the ballot box to elect a government and a prime minister who will rule the country for four years. In reality, they will go to the ballot box to decide whether they want an elected Sultan or not. Turkey’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, wants more than just to win a parliamentary majority for his Justice and Development Party (AKP). He wants a two-thirds majority, so that the constitution can be amended to introduce an executive presidential system and the Sultan can once again officially rule. In 2013, Burhan Kuzu, the AKP’s chairman of the parliament’s Constitution Commission, compared the U.S. presidency to the broad powers of Turkey’s prime minister (who at the time was Erdogan), saying, ‘Obama is a poor man, the Prime Minister is powerful.’ More recently, during a press briefing after a state visit to Kazakhstan, Erdogan told a group of Turkish journalists on April 18: ‘Look now. Obama cannot get decisions done.’ It was just another line with which he expressed his obsession to transform Turkey’s parliamentary democracy into an executive presidential system “a la Turca,” in which an elected man runs a one-man show with no checks and balances … The powers the Turkish president do not satisfy Erdogan. He is the strongman, but he wants more. He wants almost unlimited powers: He wants to be the democratically elected Sultan of a supposed emerging Turkish empire.”
And to make the argument of why Turkey is the nation of Antichrist, it will require the volumes we have written on the subject. But if one simply researches “Shoebat,” “Turkey,” and “Antichrist,” they could spend months, for we have written on this extensively.
