The False Prophet Looks Like a Lamb, But Speaks Like a Dragon
Why Do Churches Become Mosques?
Watch out for the teachings from the False Prophet.
Today we see Christian churches conducing joint Islamic services with Islamic readings, including readings from the Koran that deny Jesus is the Son of God. We see churches converted to Mosques. The Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Syracuse, New York recently sold their sanctuary building knowing full well it would become a Mosque. They said: “We wanted God to still be worshiped in this building.” Is God in a Mosque if it denies Jesus is the Son of God?
The Syracuse Mosque is named “The Mosque of Jesus, Son of Mary.” Islam denies Jesus is the Son of God, denies his crucifixion, and denies he was raised from the dead. Islam takes away the salvation from God. They say Jesus is the Son of Mary, but not the Son of God.
Jesus gave many warnings in the Book of Revelation about a coming false doctrine and spiritual war. One of the most important Bible warnings is given in Revelation 13:11.
Revelation 13:11 (NIV)
Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon.
This prophecy means the False Prophet (the second beast) will try to be associated with the lamb and yet speaks words from Satan. Mohammad did this. Jesus is mentioned 37 times in the Koran, the Koran says Mohammad’s name will be found in the Bible, and the Koran says Jesus promised Mohammad would follow him as “the Spirit of Truth.”
Muslims consistently say Jesus promised Mohammad would follow him, and cite John 16:13 (“The Spirit of Truth”) as proof. That Jesus promised Mohammad is a common teaching in Islam. Therefore Revelation 13:11 warns us that the False Prophet will attempt to look like the lamb, be connected to, or be associated with the lamb. Of course, Jesus was talking about the Holy Spirit, not a person.
