Is the final jihad tied to the last trumpet?

We think so. Jesus said, in me you may have peace in the world. Why are we so surprised? In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer. I have overcome this world. I will say this, while the world is awaiting the last jihad, we are awaiting the last trumpet. Welcome to Understanding the Times Radio with Jan Markell.

Radio for the Remnant, brought to you by Olive Tree Ministries. We so enjoyed being a part of Pastor Jack Hibbs' Behold He Comes Prophecy Conference on September 11th that we're bringing a bit of the day back to you this hour. We air Amir Sarfati's message from that day, the final jihad. How does Islam fit into end-time prophecy?

How does God deal with them in the final days? Amir unpacks that and much more this hour. Here is today's program. And welcome to the program. I'm so glad you could join me. When I heard Amir Sarfati's message back on September 11th, I felt I wanted to share it with my radio audience. So let's get right into it.

I'll make a few comments along the way. It's a great honor to be here and speak to you this afternoon. Today is a very unique day for me. Twenty years ago, I was watching those two towers falling down from across the Hudson.

I was on them the night before. In fact, 20 years ago, I got to know Gia because I was at her church in New Jersey when that happened. Let's pray. Father, we thank You for Your Word.

We know that all things eventually are under Your control. We ask that today we will continue to bring comfort to the families of the victims and continue to show everyone around the world that we need to put our trust in You and not in any human government or military. We thank You that the Lion of the tribe of Judah indeed is worthy and is victorious and He can open that scroll. Now we ask that You will bless the hearers of Your Word and may Your Word will never come back void. It will go and achieve that which it was sent for. And we ask that in Jesus' name, Amen.

So 20 years ago, radical Islam came for a visit. This is the first time I ever traveled from Israel to America just with one message for one church. I never ever had that urge to do so because the travel time and you don't want to do that for just one place.

You want to make sure you redeem your time in the best way possible. But I had that urge and I couldn't explain. And I got on the plane and I remember I shared a message on 9-9. That was Sunday.

It was a small church, small Calvary Chapel. And the title of the message was, Will there be peace? And I actually shared about the coming Islamic attack on America.

Nobody bought the tape. Those were the days America was in La La Land. And I'll tell you why. You see, in my Israeli mindset, I've watched for several years the calling of Osama bin Laden to destroy America and to attack America. It was to me, it was coming.

It's around the corner. They tried everything. And so when we made it to Manhattan and I was on those towers and I asked my host, if something is going to hit those buildings from the top, because I know they tried it from underneath. In 1993, 6 people got killed, over 1000 people were injured. Ramzi Yusuf, that terrorist, fled to Karachi, Pakistan right after that. And I thought to myself, what's going to stop them from doing that again?

But now even in a more spectacular way, because in between 1993 and 2001, they were already thinking and plotting to use airplanes. And probably you never heard of that, but that same Ramzi Yusuf realized he cannot kill that many. He wanted to kill Jews, by the way. He thought that the 2 towers are filled with Jews and realized he killed 6 people.

None of them was a Jew. And so he went all the way to the Philippines to try to plot a new thing. And that's when the interesting name, Bojinka. How many of you heard the Bojinka plot?

Bojinka is a big bomb in Serbian. And he gave that operation that he's about to execute, the Bojinka plot. And he thought, I can smuggle to 12 different flights, explosive, fluid explosive.

And I can, on the plane, connect it to detonator and to a Casio stopwatch. And let's see if it works. He actually tried it in a theater.

It worked. And then he tried it on a Filipino airliner and he put it in the flotation device and there was an explosion. But thankfully that airplane managed to land and he came to Osama bin Laden, who actually came all the way to Afghanistan in 1984 already, five years after the Soviet invaded into Afghanistan and three and a half years after America started aiding the Mujahideen to kick the Soviets out. CIA was deployed in Afghanistan and supplied the Mujahideen with Stinger missiles, shoulder missiles to shoot down all the helicopters of the Soviets.

And that's when the Soviets eventually in 1989 left 10 years later. But in between Osama bin Laden, a rich Saudi who is so amazed by what Islam is calling him to do, brought his money and his enthusiasm to Afghanistan. He's the one who actually recruited Muslims from different Islamic countries, not the Afghans. And side by side with the newly emerged Taliban, Al Qaeda was born as well. Al Qaeda originally was born to kick foreign occupiers from Muslim countries.

So what do you do? You operate in Afghanistan, you operate in Philippines, you operate in different parts of the Muslim world and even in Saudi Arabia because you believe that you first topple those governments and then they become radical Muslims and then you move on and on and on and eventually you will create an Islamic state. When you realize that it's not happening, he changed tactics and he thought, I'm going to cut the head of the snake by attacking America directly and causing America to retreat from different parts of the world where Muslims are predominantly live. So Ramzi Yusuf comes to Osama bin Laden with an idea. Look, there's the twin towers.

We tried from underneath, it's not working. I have a better plan. I can execute the Bojinka plot, which was supposed to happen in January of 1995, by the way, just so you know. 12 passenger planes on their way from Southeast Asia to America were supposed to explode. And part of the plot was to assassinate the Pope of that time.

It was discovered. So in my mind, my Israeli mind, I'm thinking they already have the capability of blowing up planes. They already want to bring down the two towers.

By the way, in his mind, I'm bringing down one tower and that tower will hit the other one and the Hudson's water will overflow and destroy the foundations and that's it. Well, ladies and gentlemen, Osama bin Laden summoned Ramzi Yusuf again in 1998. And eventually in 1999, this whole thing started being something that is operational. And believe it or not, America, 3 weeks before 9-11, even arrested one of those pilots. You know, they trained them to fly.

And he's a pilot from another wave that was supposed to happen 2 months later. But because the FBI and the CIA didn't really like each other, the laptop of that guy has never been checked and everything was on it. So in my mind, all the dots are there.

I just tried to draw the lines and so I'm asking if something hit it, what's going to happen? And my host said, you know, those steel beams, if once they melt, the whole building will just collapse like a stack of cards. The next morning we wake up to this reality, radical Islam came to a visit. And for the first time opened the eyes of the Americans to the fact that the Mujahideen to whom you assisted in the 80s in Afghanistan, they are not in love with you.

And it's because the religious affiliation, the religious calling cannot even afford that option. You need to understand in Afghanistan alone, there's about 14 different tribes, they speak different languages, different customs. And you need to understand the Pashtuns are just one.

They don't even have the same language, anything in common. So what are you going to do? You see, American people, they're wonderful people and America is a wonderful country and America is a melting pot, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

That's who you are. People from all over the world left everything and they moved to the new world. This new world right here, new country, new values, everything is different here. You have public schools, I'm talking about when originally they were okay. And you know, the public schools are melting pots and you know, the military, you have the universities, you have 2-3 generations later to see Asian marriage, a Caucasian and a black marriage, an Asian. It's okay, that's a melting pot. It's just a place where all people can live together. So Americans, things like Americans and they go to the Middle East and they say to the Middle East, to every country where they are, why can't you live together?

It's not working like that. Taliban, ISIS, Al Qaeda. And you've got a country that you negotiate with today that is the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world.

And it has a role in not stabilizing but destabilizing the entire Middle East. And take a look at the proxies that Iran has managed successfully to create in different parts of the world. In Lebanon, it's the Hezbollah, as you can see. In Yemen, it's the Houthis. In Syria, they have militias that are made of Afghans and Pakistanis, the Fatimiyun and the Zinnabiyun. You have in Iraq, Hashd al-Shaabi, the popular congregation.

And you have in Gaza and the West Bank, you have some organizations that Iran is assisting just so it will be destabilized. And then 20 years after America decided to remove the Taliban because the Taliban was where terrorism was brewing. Every known terrorist was actually in Afghanistan in those days training. And that's a few weeks ago, the incompetence that we saw.

And that's August in Afghanistan. And we all saw what happened, I don't need to tell you. I don't need to show you the 300,000 policemen and army, military people with weapons that countries wish they had. All of that disintegrated within 2 hours.

Why? Because the Taliban infiltrated into that military on one side and on the other side, the Taliban for the last few months was carefully not to kill any American soldier, but they killed Afghan soldiers all the time telling them, you better be careful. America is out, we are slaughtering you.

So what did they do? The minute America left, they dropped the weapon, took off those uniform and just took off. You think that's the end?

Wait for December in Iraq, December 31st, America is leaving Iraq as well. If you join me late, you're listening to Understanding the Times Radio and I'm playing Amir Sarfati's conference message at the Behold He Comes Prophecy Conference, Calvary Chapel, Chino Hills back on September the 11th. I was so privileged to be one of the speakers as well as Pastor Jack Hibbs, Pastor Barry Stagner, Amir Sarfati and Michelle Bachman. We have complete DVD sets of all speakers, also included a Q&A, speaker interviews and a Prophecy Roundtable.

The set makes a very lovely gift. Let's return to Amir Sarfati. Just less than a year ago, a different president brought peace to the Middle East. A few months ago, Arab Muslim countries signed peace with Israel just to show you that the identity of the person in the White House, in the Oval Office matters.

I believe that the identity of the person in the governor's mansion here also matters. The Bible says in Proverbs 28 verse 2, Because of the transgression of a land, many are its princes, but by a man of understanding and knowledge right will be prolonged. Proverbs 29, 2 says, When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice, but when a wicked man rules, the people groan. Isaiah 5, 20, Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness to light and light to darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

This whole world is upside down. Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, who write misfortune which they have prescribed, the Bible says in Isaiah. So I thought it might be worth the while to at least educate people on what jihad is all about. Because obviously they don't understand. The Bible says that my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. They're perished for lack of knowledge. And I know that when Hosea wrote that it was about Israel and it was for many other things.

But you know, this is a principle that you can actually find everywhere. Make no mistake, jihad, this holy war comes from the Arab root of the word effort. To make an effort, effort for what? To spread Islam and make Allah's word superior and make the infidels God's inferior.

That's what it's all about. It's very interesting because jihad is not only about blowing up planes. It's not only about killing people, not at all. Jihad, the effort is in so many different things.

Take a look at this list. These are all forms of jihad. Immigration, not every Muslim that migrate to other countries is a jihadist. But the jihadists look at immigration as an opportunity to start a mosque and then a school and then a kindergarten. And before you know it, they're going to tell you, we're going to dominate you.

We're going to take over. And these are in all over Europe and all over in France and in Britain and in Belgium and that's it. They're marching in the streets and they're saying, you're next. A form of a jihadist immigration. And again, don't make me, don't be mistaken, not every Muslim that immigrate is a jihadist. But when the jihadists immigrate, it is to promote this. There is a jihad in education.

They build schools in which they indoctrinate the people, the children, that there's only one way to live. And that's to make an effort to bring the word of Allah above everybody else, above everything else. There is a jihad in media.

I don't know if you know that, but Al Jazeera that is based in Qatar, make no mistake. They are even calling themselves a media jihad. Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the main cleric of radical Islam from Egypt, is having weekly sermons on Al Jazeera where he actually says, Al Jazeera is our media jihad. There's economic jihad where you boycott places that hurt Muslim causes and you encourage business with places that are donating for the Muslim causes. If you can't do all of those, pray. And they actually say you can actually be a jihadist, even if you just pray.

Again, you are making an effort, but if you have the opportunity and that's something that is going to be beneficial for the spread of Islam and making Allah's word above everything else, then by no means you should take the jihad of the sword as well. And we see that every week and every month and every year all around the world. And who are those people? You're asking yourself, who is the person that wakes up in the morning and goes to blow himself up? Well, he's called Shaheed Martyr, but the word Shaheed means a witness, to witness. Either he can witness Allah in paradise because he goes directly to paradise or Allah can witness him when he shows up in paradise or Allah will testify of this man's heroic death, heroic death. When our God says not to kill, not to murder, when our God is saying actually choose life.

When our God gave His only begotten son so we can live, not die. Here, Allah will testify of his heroic death. And you know, you think about the things that are being promised.

He promises the Shaheeds in paradise, all that he's denied access to in this world. Don't worry, you can have everything in paradise. So think about Islam born in the desert, in the 7th century. Think about the tribal community. Think about the fact that unless you have allegiance to your tribe, that's it, you're gone. Think about the fact that it's a dry land. Think about the fact that you look at every stranger as a potential person to destroy you and kill you.

And think about the things that you're being taught from age 1. 1. If you kill yourself for Islamic cause and you are a jihadist and you are a martyr, a Shaheed, you will automatically go to paradise without judgment.

2. You will enjoy all that is forbidden in this world. One of the things that radical Muslims look at the Westerners is you're drunkards, you drink alcohol, look at you.

They looked at the Soviets as drunkards in those days and then the Americans came and it's the same for them. You drink alcohol, you're defiled. Well, guess what? They're promised alcohol in heaven. Now watch this, the Shaheed, now think about it, this guy lives in a cave. Now watch this, he sits when he reaches paradise on a golden throne, a crown on his head made of stones, each of which is worth more than the entire world. There Hadith says that a tree full of fruit is right at his height.

So he won't even make an effort to reach out to that and then the fruit is right there and there's rivers all around, good smell. But the best of the best is Allah gives him 72 30-year-old dark-eyed fair-skinned virgins as wives. Some say 30 to 33, not sure, all of which have permanent makeup. They never eat, they never drink, they're always clean, they're always beautiful, they're always ready. Their skin is tight, their skin is almost transparent. In the Quran, they say that he can see himself like a mirror, pure, ready for him at any time.

And somehow they always remain virgins. Now comes probably the most... if that's so flesh and flesh, watch this now. He gets to advocate for 50 of his family members so they will be allowed into paradise on judgment day. Think about it, that little boy, he's saying, if I'm dead, I get this, this, this, but I'm also the savior of my entire family.

You think that an American with money, boost your economy, build your schools, build your kindergarten, give the women rights to go to... Are you kidding me? He looks at you as people who paved his road to hell. In his mind, that's paradise.

And if he kills himself, he is also saving his entire family. Now you probably, you sit here and you're laughing, but I want to show you from age zero almost, there's two books that they're always being taught from... I'm not talking about the Quran right now or the Hadith. Look, there are books that are talking about the advantages of paradise with rivers and it's all green. Now he lives in the desert. That's not for someone who lives in Oregon.

This, look for him, it's life that he's never seen. And of course that jar is for alcohol. If that's not enough on the right, nar, the hell that is promised to anyone who is not making an effort for spreading Islam. And one of the things is you fall 40 years, you're in a free fall until you get to hell.

40 years, can you imagine the strength of your impact when you reach 40 years free fall down to hell from a young age. And you come and telling life, freedom, pursue of happiness, you speak American to them. That's the language that they understand. The Muslim brotherhood is everywhere and on their logo, there's those two swords that are nothing but to chop heads, of course. But then underneath there's an Arabic word and many people were wondering, what is it all about?

The word is... which means prepare. But that's the only time, one time it appears in the whole Quran... prepare what? Well, that's the verse, prepare for them, whatever you can, weapons and horses in order to sow terror in the hearts of yours and Allah's enemies, the infidels.

It's a commandment, we exist to prepare to sow terror in all of you. Now the Muslim brotherhood started in 1920s in Egypt, when England, when the British empire is still controlling it, then they thought we'll kick them out of Egypt. Of course, many movements came from the Muslim brotherhood during the 50s and 60s and 70s. Al Qaeda is only from 1984. It's the grandchild and ISIS, by the way, is the great grandchild. By the way, Osama bin Laden never thought that you start with an Islamic state. He says, you take over this and this and this and this, and eventually you will form an Islamic state. ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi thought, no, reverse it, start an Islamic state, call it an Islamic state and then start spreading out.

That's the difference between the two. They don't really like each other, by the way. They look at people where they conquer Ahl al-Dinmah, which means you are under their protection. You're not Muslims, but in order to stay alive, you need to agree that Islam is superior, Allah is superior, Allah's word is superior and you need to pay tax in order to stay alive. By the way, they have a little hard time with the Christians and Jews because Christians and Jews are known as Ahl al-Kitab, the people of the book, the family of the book.

Because you have a book that obviously says that there is only one God, therefore you can stay alive. We don't have to kill you immediately. Thank you. When we come back, we'll wrap up Amir Tsarfati's message, the final jihad from the Behold He Comes Prophecy Conference last month at Pastor Jack Hibbs' church.

If you learn by viewing, we hope you'll seek out these options. Here's the conclusion to today's program. So we're heading into part 2 of Amir Tsarfati's message, the final jihad from Behold He Comes Prophecy Conference about a month ago in Southern California. Here's Amir. When you try to understand peace, you need to understand there is no such thing between a Muslim and a non-Muslim that is called peace.

What am I trying to say? In 622 AD, Mohammed understands that he's too weak and he's too unpopular in Mecca. He was actually driven out and he migrated to Medina, the second largest city. And that was the Hijrah, the migration into Medina. And for probably 6 years, he's plotting, how am I going back to Mecca and conquer and kill everyone there or convert them to Islam, whatever works. Well, he goes on a march towards Mecca and the Quraysh tribe of Mecca sends their soldiers and they meet next to a small village called Hudaybiyyah.

In 628, Mohammed is looking and he's seeing that the Quraysh tribe is way stronger than he is. And he decided, let's sign a peace deal for 9 years, 9 months and 9 days. And for the next 2 years, he made them think that he's keeping that deal. Month after month, the Quraysh tribe is looking around, Mohammed is not attacking. After a year, he's still a good boy.

After 2 years, I guess he's going to keep that deal. So they send all of their soldiers, all of their camels to the trade routes, different parts. And when he saw that they're weak, 630 AD, he conquered Mecca, killed any opposition, converted to Islam, anyone who was willing to, unless of course they died and that's it. That's the Hudaybiyyah treaty. What does it mean? It means that what you sign on worth nothing, the first opportunity you have, what are you going to do?

Take over. Why am I telling you that? Because in 1979, Jimmy Carter, your president brokered a peace deal between Israel and Egypt and Anwar Sadat, Muslim guy, he's saying to himself, wait a minute, am I allowed to have treaty with Jews? He went to Al-Azhar, the Islamic Institute in Egypt and they decided you can, it will be exactly like the Hudaybiyyah treaty, don't worry, he signed the deal. 1994, the Oslo Accords, slick Billy, put Israel and the Palestinians together.

Anyway, Yasser Arafat, a few months after shows up in Johannesburg, South Africa and says, he compares Oslo Accords to Muhammad's Hudaybiyyah peace treaty, which led of course to the defeat of the peace partners. So now you understand who you're dealing with. And the reason why I'm saying that is this, we are watching right now, the rise of the jihad. You are watching the comeback of ISIS, of Al Qaeda, of Taliban and Iran has never been more active as it is right now in spreading terrorism. And you're asking yourself, what is going on? I thought we're done with these things.

You are watching right now the last surge and why is that? Bible prophecy has nothing to say about the nations as such in their relations to one another. You don't see a verse about America and Mexico and trade or war or whatever. You don't see a verse about Britain and France or about Germany and France.

You don't. Prophecy is only about the relations of those nations to Israel, the people and the land, always. In Deuteronomy 32 verses 8 to 9, when the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the boundaries of the peoples according to the number of the children of Israel. For the Lord's portion is His people, Jacob is the place of his inheritance. The key to all prophecy is the Jew.

What are you talking about, Willis? If the Jewish nation had not forsaken God and neglected the Sabbaths, there would have been no times of the Gentiles. The times of the Gentiles began when God transferred rule from the kings of Israel to the Gentile King Nebuchadnezzar and they will continue until Israel again becomes the head of the nations. When will Israel become the head of the nations? The Bible says in Romans 11, when Israel will be saved. When will Israel be saved? When Jesus comes back. When will He come back after the tribulation? Thank you, after the tribulation. I didn't ask when will the rapture happen because that's not something that we know. But I know that 7 years after the tribulation begins, it ends. How do you know that?

The Bible tells me. And when Jesus comes back, He's not coming back for us, He's coming back with us. Wait, and He's landing on where? Mount Rushmore?

No, where? Mount of Olives. And the Bible says, they look at Me whom they pierced and they will mourn and they will cry. And that's the repentance of the remnant of Israel and all Israel will be saved. The times of the Gentiles will come to an end.

I didn't say that, Paul said that, Jesus told him. Ladies and gentlemen, and so when everybody's in the radical Islamic world is watching the weakness of America, because America, by the way, make no mistake, you have the strongest military in the world. You have the most sophisticated military in the world. You have an amazing military.

It's just that at the moment, your commander in chief is not awake half of the time. Now listen, listen to me, folks. Now it doesn't matter if you're strong, as long as you are perceived weak, that's what matters. And at the moment, I'm sure you all know, you are being perceived weak.

Although you are strong, you are being perceived weak. And the horrific videos that we've seen, although by the way, you've done an unbelievable job in rescuing many people. But the horrific videos that we've seen of how, for some reason, military retreat before others, you understand that in the minds of the enemies, if it's possible to defeat the great United States military, it is all the more possible to defeat Israel. Now you must understand, Israel has gone through a journey from 1948 to 2021. From Psalm 83 all the way to Ezekiel 38, I call it, it's a journey. Psalm 83, make no mistake, it's a description of what we were facing in 1948. Do not keep silent, O God, do not hold your peace. Do not be still, O God, for behold, your enemies make a tumult. Those who hate you have consulted and have lifted up their head and they have taken crafty counsel against your people and they consulted together against your sheltered ones. Who are they? Who are His people?

Who are His sheltered ones? Take a look, there's the answer. And they have said, come, let us cut them off from being a nation that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.

They're your answer. Israel is a nation. There is no Afghan nation, did you know that?

There are 15 different tribal affiliations. There is no Iraqi nation, if you really think about it. There's no Iranian nation, if you really think about it. You see, it's the Western world that put together all of this, drew new maps and that's it. And it's all falling apart in Sudan and in Yemen and in Libya.

I mean, just look all around you. It's falling apart because Jesus described the enemy says, Ethnos versus Ethnos. It's not nation against nation in the way we see nations.

It's ethnic groups against ethnic groups, tribal affiliation against tribal affiliation. And Israel is a nation. And so they say, let us cut them off from being a nation that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.

When was that? The moment Ben-Gurion declared that Israel is the name of what they call for 1900 years, Palestine. For they have consulted together with one consent. They form a confederacy against you, the tents of Edom, Ishmaelites, Moab, Haggai, Gebal, Ammon, Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre. Assyria also adjoined them and have held the children of God. Ladies and gentlemen, all the names that I just read to you are the countries that were the first tier around Israel. Anywhere from Egypt to Jordan, to Syria, the Lebanon and also even Iraq joined, Syria joined. That's 1948, 1956 came and 1967 came, 1973 came and the Egyptians gave up and the Jordanians later on gave up and they realized that we can't beat them. And there's a peace accord with Egypt, peace accord with Jordan and now Egypt buys gas, Jordan buys gas from Israel.

Not just that they have peace with us, they are now buying from us the very basic thing for their economy. And so when we moved all the way to 70 years later, when Israel is way strong financially and militarily and technologically, look, Ezekiel 38 says, The word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, set your face against Gog and the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Russia, Meshech and Tubal, the prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord God, behold, I am... what?... I'm against you. God says to the enemies that is going to come, I'm against you.

In other words, it's not going to end up good for you. O Gog, the prince of Rosh, he says, I will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws and lead you out with all your armies, horses, horsemen. Look what he says, he continues, he says, not only you, it's going to be Persia. Persia is the name of Iran of today, that's the biblical name. Ethiopia is the name of what probably Sudan is today. We're not sure because it's right there, Sudan in Ethiopia area. And then Libya, he says, are with them and all of them with the shield and helmet, Gomer and all of its troops, the house of Togarmah.

These are the ancient biblical names of Turkey of today. Many people are with you. You're looking and you're seeing a whole formation of nations that is coming together for an invasion into Israel. And what kind of reality is going to allow for this Ezekiel 38 coalition to make the move? Because the coalition is in existence already.

But when will they make a move? You and I know, and we've heard that before today, under the 45th president, there was no way they would have made this move. He's a strong advocate of Israel. He moved the embassy to Jerusalem. He banished and canceled anything that has to do with Palestinian diplomatic thing in Jerusalem. He declared that the Golan Heights are Israeli territory. He declared that Judea and Samaria, those settlements are legal, not illegal. That's the land of our forefathers. He withdrew from the Iran deal because he could see, look, Iran is few weeks away from nuclear bomb, did you know that? Even America already came to that realization right now.

You're no longer interested in the deal because it's too late. They made a great progress for a military nuclear weapon. I'm playing Amir Sarfati's conference message from Behold He Comes, the Prophecy Conference at Calvary Chapel, Chino Hills, California. Back on September 11th, I was so privileged to be one of the speakers as well as Pastor Jack Hibbs, Pastor Barry Stagner, Amir Sarfati and Michele Bachmann. We have complete DVD sets of all speakers, also included a Q&A, speaker interviews and a prophecy round table.

Find the items in my online store, give my office a call or get on our newsletter lists. Let's return now to wrap up the hour. So what are we seeing? We're seeing the rise of radical Islam and we're seeing the decline of the United States of America and a weak government in Israel that depends on Muslim Brotherhood. In Israel, the government today will not exist one more day without leaning on the votes of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Do you even understand what I said? Look what we switched from a great statesman to a crook that stole the election by what? By leaning on the votes of those who doesn't want you to even exist. So we see there's the rise of this Ezekiel 38 coalition, but how many of you read the full chapter? How many of you know the end of that coalition? You see, everybody is like, Oh, they're going to be defeated. But who is going to defeat them? You see, it's not going to be Israel. It's not going to be the Israeli Prime Minister, the Israeli generals, the Israeli military, not even a single time it says that Israel will use its best weapon and thus will obliterate their... No, God will have to intervene. And you know the greatest thing of all, God will intervene in a supernatural way.

So no one will even be a little bit confused about who is running the show. Earthquakes, brimstones coming from... that's not a weapon Israel developed. And so I'm puzzled at why so many teachers teach that the Antichrist is going to be a Muslim. Ladies and gentlemen, can a Muslim be a world leader?

By definition, they are not. They will have to make you Muslims or kill you. Second, can a Muslim be accepted as a Messiah by the Jews? Of course not. Can a Muslim allow a Jewish temple on the Temple Mount?

Of course not. But there has to be a third temple because the Bible tells us. The Bible tells us in Matthew 24, and I love how Jesus acknowledged the Old Testament prophets. And He said, therefore, when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by who? Daniel, the prophets standing in the holy place. Let no one deceive you in 2 Thessalonians. Paul is writing to a very confused congregation over there.

The thought that that's it, the rapture happened, the tribulation began. He says, no. He says, you have to understand that day will not come. And then he moved on and he says, he's speaking of the son of perdition who opposes and exalts himself about all that is called God. Or what is worship so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. And it's the same Daniel who wrote in chapter 9, verse 27, He shall confirm a covenant, Hegbeir, brit, Hegbeir means he will increase, he will make something ordinary, spectacular.

What is so spectacular? For the first time, a temple will be included in the peace deal. And he confirmed a covenant with many for one week, which is a 7 years period. But in the middle of that week, he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. That's a testimony that the temple was standing and there were sacrifices and offerings because he will stop it.

That's why in 1st Thessalonians, it says concerning the times of the season, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you, for you yourself know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes in the thief in the night, for when they say peace and safety... See the tribulation, understand tribulation is going to be horrific, but it's the whole 7 years. We live now in the days of Noah, right now. Right now we build our ark and they're laughing at us, right now.

Noah is what? A minister of what? Righteousness. We need to be ministers of righteousness. So when you run to office, be a minister of righteousness.

When you need to vote for someone who runs for office, vote for the one who is for righteousness. Peace and safety, then sudden destructions come upon them as labor pains upon pregnant women and they shall not escape. We can see that and there's not going to be one world religion that we know as is right now.

It's a new world religion. Look what Revelation 17 says, the 10 horns, which you saw are 10 kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. And these are of one mind and they will give their power and authority to the beast.

We don't see that yet. We don't see how the world is losing all the national identity, create 10 entities and they're going to relinquish their authority to the beast yet. The beast is not here yet. The Antichrist, remember, I'm looking at how the Afghans started in Exodus, running away from the Taliban. The Antichrist is someone people will run towards, not away from, unless you are not his. Ladies and gentlemen, 2 Scriptures are being used for people to claim that this guy is a Muslim.

1. In Micah 5.5, the latter part of verse 5 says that when the Assyrian comes into our land and when he treads in our palaces, then we will rise against him, 7 shepherds and 8 princely men. Well, let me tell you that this probably was fulfilled immediately by Sennacherib, the king of Assyria who reigned from 705 to 681 B.C. And then there is Ezekiel 28, verses 1 and 2. The word of the Lord came to me again, saying, Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord God, because your heart is lifted up, and you say, I am a god. I sit in the seat of gods in the midst of the seas. Yet you are a man and not a god, though you set your heart as the heart of a god. Well, believe it or not, the king of Tyre, Tyre was one of the most wealthiest kingdoms in those days. And he really thought he is a god. By the way, many, many kings thought that they're a god. Last time I checked, worms ate who? Herod.

Why? Because people thought he is god and he never said no. Remember? Even the Caesar in Rome, when he entered into Rome, there were some clowns that will always run before him and tell him, you're not a god, you're not a god. Because they thought they're a god. They were worshiped as gods. So Tyre was destroyed twice after Ezekiel's prophecy, first by Nebuchadnezzar and then by Alexander the Great. If you want to understand who the Antichrist is, there are 3 books that gives us a consistent picture of who he is. Daniel, 2nd Thessalonians and the book of Revelation. Daniel chapter 8, we read about it.

In 2nd Thessalonians, we read about it. And then of course, in Revelation 13, you see a lot of what this man is all going to be. And look, I've said many things that may not sound nice. I showed you that this is the final jihad.

Why? Because the minute radical Islam is going to be defeated on the mountains of Israel in Ezekiel, someone new is going to emerge into the scene and introduce a new religion to all the hundreds of millions that are going to be so confused and so desperate for what's going on around us. Ladies and gentlemen, we are not to be concerned. Jesus said, let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, guess what? I will come again and what? Receive you unto Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. Ladies and gentlemen, who is changing address here?

We! He didn't say where you are, I will also be. He says, where I am, you will also be.

He will receive us unto Himself and where I go, you know, and the way you know. And Jesus says, these things I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace. Look, if you try to find peace in this administration or in military powers or in the stock market or in some motivational speaking person or in some sugar coated messages in some churches that are telling you that claim it, name it, you'll get it.

Ladies and gentlemen, it's not going to work. Jesus said, in Me you may have peace in the world. Why are we so surprised? In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer. I have overcome this world. I will say this, while the world is awaiting the last jihad, we are awaiting the last trumpet. And a lot of people, every Feast of Trumpets, people come to me and at the end of the feast, they're angry and disappointed. What happened? Why?

What happened? Feast of Trumpets is over now, we're still here. Guys, the last trumpet is the trumpet of God.

It's not here. It's not few Jews in a synagogue... No, it's a trumpet of God, the voice of an archangel. Is the archangel around you here?

No, he's there. This is not about us preparing His return on earth. It's about heaven prepares our arrival into heaven. So the last trumpet is not to be heard here. Nobody's going to hear the trumpet here. We're going to be gone and everybody's like, thank you, Lord, they're out of here.

Let's party right now. You have to understand something, nobody would miss you. We will be gone and we will be received with a trumpet, with the voice of an archangel. And we will be escorted in our 2000 year old project of mansions.

And that's how it is going to be. So whenever it's hard and it is going to be way harder, but God never promised us that things will be great. Jesus, not a single time said, be of good cheer, in this world you will have a garden of roses. So things are going to get hard, but our mind, our heart should be fixed on the things that are above.

Set your mind on the things which are above, where Christ is at the right hand of the Father, not on the things which are on earth. Father, we thank you for your promises. We thank you, Father, that we're not destined to the wrath of God. We are going to be saved and protected from the wrath that is about to come. We thank you, Father, for all your promises. We pray, Father, also for the salvation of Israel. We understand this, the tribulation will lead to their salvation eventually. But we pray that many will find you even before that. Father, we also pray for this country, for the United States of America. Father, the body of Christ is alive here. And we ask that you, like never before, will reveal yourself to so many people in this country to understand that we need to put our trust, not in horses and not in chariots, but trust in the name that is above all names, the name that is of the Prince of Peace, who is the only one that can give us peace that surpasses all understanding. His name is Yeshua because He is our salvation and it is in His name that we pray and all of God's people say, Amen. The Bible says God wants all to be saved and that includes the many who are a part of the Muslim world. It may be that no one will tell the lost in your life about the good news of salvation if you don't. As the popular song says, go tell it on the mountain. Go tell all you know that time is running out, that the King is coming, and that you must be born again.

And as Romans 10 says, all who call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ will be saved. I want to thank you for listening. We'll talk to you again next week.
