First Seal: Antichrist Will Be A Muslim? Don’t Ask A Recovering Muslim, Ask Azazel-Goat Demon
When you read the biblical stories about the antichrist, please note the types and shadows of the animals/beasts listed. Before the antichrist assumes his reign in terror, he is described as a clean animal, and likened to Alexander, a Macedonian. Other than Joel Richardson, Walid Shoebat, and a few others; nobody of Messianic or Jewish faith thinks that the antichrist will be a Muslim. A recovering Muslim like Walid Shoebat may make interesting comments about other Muslims, but he’s no rabbi. I posit that unless you’re a rabbi, or a Messianic, you shouldn’t make dogmatic assertions about rabbinic commentaries.
Most rabbis state that the antichrist will be a Hebrew from the tribe of Dan. Rabbis cite the same evidence that I cite. Please review my comparisons between goats, Azazel, and the antichrist. http://joelblackford.blogspot.com/2014/02/cosmos-reversal-news-2014-why-is-north.html
In Daniel, Alexander the Great and the antichrist are both portrayed by a Tamai (clean) goat.
and I was beginning to understand, when a male goat [antichrist-clean animal] came from the west, passing over the whole earth without touching the ground. The goat had a prominent horn between its eyes. It approached the ram with the two horns [end time’s Harlot Church, east and west-clean animal], which I had seen standing in front of the river, and charged it with savage force. I watched as it advanced on the ram, filled with rage against it, and struck the ram, breaking its two horns. The ram was powerless to stand against it. It threw the ram to the ground and trampled it down, and there was no one that could rescue it from the goat’s power. The male goat then became extremely strong; but when it was strong, the big horn was broken; and in its place arose what appeared to be four horns in the directions of the four winds of heaven. Out of one of them came a little horn which grew extremely big in the directions of the south and east, and in the direction of the Glory. It grew so great that it reached the army of heaven; it hurled some of the army and the stars to the ground and trampled on them. Yes, it even considered itself as great as the prince of the army; the regular burnt offering was taken away from him, and the place of his sanctuary was thrown down. Through sin, the army was put in its power, along with the regular burnt offering. It flung truth on the ground as it acted and prospered.
Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to the speaker, “How long will the events of the vision last, this vision concerning the regular offering and the transgression which is so appalling, that allows the sanctuary and the army to be trampled underfoot?” The first said to me, “Two thousand three hundred evenings and mornings, after which the sanctuary will be restored to its rightful state.”Daniel 8:5-14 (CJB)
Behold, a he-goat - This was Alexander the Great; and a goat was a very proper symbol of the Grecian or Macedonian people. Bp. Newton very properly observes that, two hundred years before the time of Daniel, they were called Aegeadae, the goats' people; the origin of which name is said to be as follows: Caranus, their first king, going with a multitude of Greeks to seek a new habitation in Macedonia, was advised by an oracle to take the goats for his guides; and afterwards, seeing a herd of goats flying from a violent storm, he followed them to Edessa, and there fixed the seat of his empire, and made the goats his ensigns or standards; and called the place Aege or Aegea, the goats' town; and the people Aegeadae, the goats' people; names which are derived from αιξ, αιγος, a goat. The city Aege or Aegea, was the usual burying-place of the Macedonian kings; and, in reference to this origin, Alexander called his son by Roxana, Alexander Aegus, Alexander the goat. All this shows the very great propriety of the symbol here used. Came from the west - Europe lies westward of Asia. http://biblehub.com/commentaries/daniel/8-5.htm
First, Daniel 8 is about the End of Days because the Hebrew word "achareit" is used twice to warn readers that this event will happen again. And, no Muslim will be allowed near the Third Temple Holy of Holies.
“Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and for your holy city for putting an end to the transgression, for making an end of sin, for forgiving iniquity, for bringing in everlasting justice, for setting the seal on vision and prophet, and for anointing the Especially Holy Place. Know, therefore, and discern that seven weeks [of years] will elapse between the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Yerushalayim until an anointed prince comes. It will remain built for sixty-two weeks [of years], with open spaces and moats; but these will be troubled times. Then, after the sixty-two weeks, Mashiach will be cut off and have nothing. The people of a prince yet to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary, but his end will come with a flood, and desolations are decreed until the war is over. He will make a strong covenant with leaders for one week [of years]. For half of the week he will put a stop to the sacrifice and the grain offering. On the wing of detestable things the desolator will come and continue until the already decreed destruction is poured out on the desolator.” Daniel 9:24-27 (CJB)
“So when you see the abomination that causes devastation spoken about through the prophet Dani’el standing in the Holy Place” (let the reader understand the allusion), “that will be the time for those in Y’hudah to escape to the hills. Matthew 24:15-16 (CJB)
The antichrist will use Muslims to selectively kill certain people(s). Here is his battle plan. Muslims kill for other reasons.
“The king [antichrist] will do as he pleases. He will exalt himself and consider himself greater than any god, and he will utter monstrous blasphemies against the God of gods. He will prosper only until the period of wrath is over, for what has been determined must take place. He will show no respect for the gods his ancestors worshipped, or for the god women worship — he won’t show respect for any god, because he will consider himself greater than all of them. But instead, he will honor the god of strongholds; with gold, silver, precious stones and other costly things he will honor a god unknown to his ancestors. He will deal with the strongest fortresses with the help of a foreign god. He will confer honor on those he acknowledges, causing them to rule over many and distributing land as a reward.
“When the time for the end comes, the king of the south will push at him; while the king of the north will attack him like a whirlwind, with chariots, cavalry and a large navy. He will invade countries, overrun them and move on. He will also enter the Land of Glory, and many [countries] will come to grief, but these will be saved from his power — Edom, Mo’av and the people of ‘Amon. He will reach out his hand to seize other countries too. The land of Egypt will not escape — he will control the treasures of gold and silver, as well as everything else in Egypt of value. Put and Ethiopia will be subject to him. However, news from the east and north will frighten him, so that he moves out in great fury to ruin and completely do away with many. Finally, when he pitches the tents of his palace between the seas and the mountain of the holy Glory, he will come to his end, with no one to help him. Daniel 11:36-45 (CJB)
For the Day will not come until after the Apostasy has come and the man who separates himself from Torah has been revealed, the one destined for doom. He will oppose himself to everything that people call a god or make an object of worship; he will put himself above them all, so that he will sit in the Temple of God and proclaim that he himself is God. II Thessalonians 2:3-4 (CJB)
and I saw a beast come up out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads. On its horns were ten royal crowns and on its heads blasphemous names. The beast which I saw was like a leopard, but with feet like those of a bear and a mouth like the mouth of a lion. To it the dragon gave its power, its throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast appeared to have received a fatal wound, but its fatal wound was healed, and the whole earth followed after the beast in amazement. They worshipped the dragon, because he had given his authority to the beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who can fight against it?” Revelation 13:1-4 (CJB)
My opinions (Source: Teemo): Someday soon, a man, aka the antichrist, will be possessed by the goat spirit of Azazel prior to his reign. In Daniel 8:5, the he goat with ONE horn destroys the Ram. In the natural, rams always kill goats, due to extra power. When the antichrist is imbued with the spirit of Azazel, the goat wins. For those of you looking for a Muslim Antichrist, the goat is Tamai, which means he is Clean for Temple Sacrifice. Do you see the connection?
It's just historical evidence that the goat, and not just any goat, but a distinctly one-horned goat, was the Macedonian symbol. Also, the way Alexander attacked would be kind of symbolic of the horn, as he didn't use the phalanx, like other armies, but did a triangle formation, which could pierce the uniform front of the phalanx, and cause confusion, so he could easily route the enemy. I see the picture of The Spirit of Azazel attacking the body of Yeshua and nations around Israel (Dan. 11:36-45), swiftly, like Alexander, and attacks right in the middle, with his sharp pointy horn/half-truths/accusations, and everyone scatters, and confusion ensues. The antichrist will attack just like Alexander, the other he goat.
