The Image of the Beast
Some Interesting Insights into what could possibly be the Image of the Beast spoken of in the book of Revelation.
Rev 13:15 “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed”.
In Islamic tradition notes:
“Allah will raise up the black stone on the Day of Judgement and it will have two eyes and a tongue which it talks with, and it will give witness to everyone who touched it in truth”.
It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaassaid: The Messenger of Allaah said concerning the Stone:
“By Allaah, Allaah will bring it forth on the Day of Resurrection, and it will have two eyes with which it will see and a tongue with which it will speak, and it will testify in favour of those who touched it in sincerity.”
It is beleived by Muslims that you receive forgiveness of sins by touching the black stone. The black stone is in the corner of their mecca temple. We know that JESUS is the Chief Cornerstone!
The Black Stone is Allah’s right hand on earth with which He shakes the hands of His slaves.
The Stone is roughly 30 cm (12 in.) in diameter. It is the eastern cornerstone of the Kaaba, the ancient sacred stone building towards which Muslims pray, in the center of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. According to Islamic tradition, the Stone fell from Heaven. Muslims teach that Jesus is not the Son of God and that Judas, not Jesus, was crucified on the cross!
1 John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
POSSIBLE Abomination of Desolation?
Is it possible that they will move the black stone of mecca to Jerusalem?
If they move the image of the beast to Jerusalem, to the Holy Mount, that would be a very horrible abomination! It is prophesied by some islamic preachers that the move may indeed take place!
Why such a move? It could be because of a coming future war between Saudi Arabia and another islamic country such as Iran. Some, including some muslims, say that Mecca and Medina will be destroyed in the near future. Some say that Saudi Arabia is Babylon and thus that it will be destroyed and the center of islam moved to JerusalemThe Mysterious Black Stone of Kaaba – Worship of a Meteorite?
