Will the Jews accept a Muslim Antichrist?
An argument used against the idea that the Antichrist could be
Muslim because the Jews would not accept a Muslim Messiah is
both right and wrong.
It is right because the Jews will not accept a Muslim as their
Messiah. Their Scriptures are clear that their Messiah will be a
Jew. It is wrong because Scripture does not say he will be
embraced as one of them to be their Messiah.
Scripture reveals that the Antichrist will confirm a seven year
treaty with Israel. This does not sound like a loving
relationship of a people with their Savior, but two warring
factions who calls a halt to their warring.
Scripture also reveals that half way through the treaty, the
Antichrist will break the treaty, establish himself in the
temple (the abomination of desolation), take the position of
God, and engage in a global holocaust of all Jews, Christians,
and anyone opposed to him. This is definitely a forced take-over
of the Jews and the temple, not the Jews embracing their
Nowhere does Scripture indicate the Jews will accept the
Antichrist as their Messiah. It does indicate they accept him in
the name of peace through the confirmation of a peace treaty
The bottom-line is that, though the Antichrist will not be
accepted as the Jews Messiah, he will be accepted as the one
they form a seven year treaty with to stop the continual
fighting. The Jews will accept him, but only as the negotiator
of peace... through peace he overtakes Jerusalem and the temple.
