Arab Spring / Christian Winter

Eleven years ago, as I was in the process of writing my first book, (which would later be renamed Islamic Antichrist), I came into contact with two other brothers who were working on similar books. I cannot remember exactly how the thee of us came into contact, but it was clearly providential. All three of us agreed that Islam was likely to be the final system of the Antichrist, all three of us also had a heart for Muslims and seeing the gospel go forward in the Muslim world. The third opinion that we all shared was that none of us believed in the pre-tribulational rapture. As such, we all believed that it was necessary to prepare believers for what we believed was coming.

The two men were Robert Livingston who wrote Christianity and Islam, the Final Clash, and Ralph Stice, who wrote From 9-11 to 666. To this day, I still highly recommend both books.

It was a joy last summer to finally meet Robert Livingston face to face in Istanbul for lunch and a few cups of Turkish coffee. After having first “met” via e-mail over a decade before, it was wonderful to finally sit down with such a high-quality brother to discuss our mutual love for Muslims as well as the political earthquake that was at that time rocking that nation.

To date, I have yet to meet Ralph Stice face to face, but I’m quite sure that in time we will be able to make that happen. I do want to say this however. From 9-11 to 666 remains to be one of the most thoughtful treatments of the Islamic End Time theory that has been written. It is a book written from a lifetime of experience living among, and truly getting to know countless Muslims.

And so I am truly excited by the fact that after a decade since his last book, Stice has now released another book, Arab Spring, Christian Winter. It is now available on Amazon as a paperback or a Kindle book. I encourage everyone to get a copy and give Stice’s words serious consideration. As I said, Stice is an original thinker and an excellent writer. I promise that you will enjoy this new release. Be sure to leave a review on Amazon. Blessings all.

    I bought the book and am half way through it. By the author’s own words:

    “I have never been a prophecy geek…make up for that lack with my knowledge of the Islamic heart and doctrine.” Ralph Stice

    I’ve found it a great compliment to Mideast Beast. Mideast Beast gives one the theologic basis for Islam = the Beast, whereas this book examines the mind of Muslims, both radical and moderate, and examines recent events from that perspective.

    I think it’s a worthwhile read from what I’ve seen so far and will leave you with a greater heart for seeing the gospel spread to Muslim countries: an aspect sometimes lacking in those of us who are “prophecy geeks.”

    I also am enjoying Author Stice’s new book! His personal understanding of the heart and soul of the average Muslim person (not the Western-educated Muslim which he uses as a contrast) shows the deep suffering of the Muslim people within the Mideast under the old despot regimes. This book evokes great compassion for the average Muslim who longs to live in a better society that does not oppress them for personal political gain.

    This e-book is a wonderful surprise to me! His warnings regarding “pure Islam” or as I put it conservative, fundamental, Qu’ran-following precise Islam is attempting to fill that vacuum left by the sweep of despot regimes from political revolution. All of these recent events are given a big picture perspective by Author Stice within the plan of God to do final stage-setting for the emergence of the biblical antichrist/al-Mahdi, false prophet/Muslim Jesus and fourth kingdom of Daniel’s statute/beast system of Revelation/revived Islamic Caliphate.

    I am so glad your web site and ministry outreach has a dual purpose, Joel. To educate the western Church regarding the Islamic paradigm within biblical prophecy and the gospel outreach to the Muslims in the 10/40 window, the spiritually darkest geographical place on the globe. By recommending other authors such as Ralph Stice, you continue to solidify your well-deserved credibility from your regular followers on your web site by helping to support other Authors’ works to continue to spread understanding to the Church on a macro level.

    My small but important e-book Kindle library regarding Islam and biblical prophecy is growing. Thanks to you!

    Blessings!

    Could this be the start of the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39?
    The traditional understanding is that Russia is Magog.

    Is it possible that Russia could act against Israel? Certainly. But it would most certainly not have anything to do with Ezekiel 38-39. A careful exegesis of the passage simply doesn’t allow it. Not that this will stop newspaper exegetes from making such claims…

    But if one actually reads the article, it says that Russia may be seeking to instigate a war between Israel and her Arab neighbors. This is very far from what many prophecy teachers claim, who say that Russia will actually lead an invasion of Israel.

    The main contention I see between Israel and Russia is oil.
    Oil and gas are the biggest export of Russia. Its economy depends on it.
    There is a pipeline coming out of Qatar and Saudi Arabia that Israel is planning on using to export its new found oil to Europe.Syria refused to allow this pipeline to go through their country. That’s Why They Want Assad gone. Russia would see their control over European energy diminished as a result. It would also break Turkey free from Iranian oil, a NATO ally.
    Perhaps its early, but a Russian led invasion could be in the works.

    Hi Joel,
    The history channel is going to do a two part series on the book of Revelation/end of days scenario. The documentary starts this coming Monday.
    I know you are a very busy man,and if you get to watch the documentary I would be interested in your comments about the show.

    Thank you and many blessings to you and yours,
    Shawn

    Merry Christmas Joel & Family,

    Questions: I believe that the 2nd Coming & the Rapture of the Body of Messiah happen at the “last trumpet” (1 Cor. 15:52) which I assume would be the 7th Trumpet in the Book of Rev.((Rev 11:15-19). Is this a good assumption? Or could it be another Trumpet like the final Jubilee Trumpet that can only be blown on the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 25:8-11)? Thanks for your help.

    God bless you, brother.

    Hi Jay,

    I would encourage you to get Alan Kurschner’s book Antichrist, Before the Day of the Lord, or the implied version, called Pre-Wrath. Also, the book, The Last Shofar. All good reads.

    Hey Jay!

    My vote would be for “The Last Shofar” by authors Lenard/Zollar. Man, was that an eye-opener…I learned so much from that book and still learning because I constantly re-read it. One of my top picks of 2014!

    Blesings!

    I wanted to share this article regarding the shortcomings of the attempt at forming a caliphate. I personally think country borders will be redrawn in Iraq and Syria to accomodate the many different ethnic demographics. This has been discussed as balkanization.

    Hello Joel, sorry I did the translation from Portuguese by google translator.
    I am following his studies for a few videos of yotube and sites that have been subtitled in my language. I marveled at the new revelations about the second coming of Christ and the Islamic Antichrist.
    But Brazil needs to know this good news when you dropped your books in Portuguese?
    Thank you and may God continue using you mightily………

    Joel,

    What are your thoughts about this man?
    Is he the false prophet or the comming Antichrist?
    I understand that you have met with him and seeing what I see makes me wonder…

    YAHYA = Reads Just like 600, 60, 6 in Aramic!

    Read the face book page closely!

    https://www.facebook.com/harunyahyaworks?fref=nf

    Look at the name!
    Knowing what he posts on his protals and how his influence is with ERDOGAN it seems to me that this new “Turkish – Islamic Union” is being infulenced by HARUN YAHYA himself

    I am a beliver in the ONLY SON OF GOD! Jesus Christ! – Cant wait to meet him in the AIR!

    I do not believe he is the Antichrist or False Prophet, though he certainly is channelling some antichrist doctrines. He is deeply misled and needs Jesus. Some of his followers are very wonderful and sincere people. I enjoy chatting with some of the men when in Turkey and I pray for them to come to the truth of the gospel.

    How does one obtain these books for a reasonable price? On Amazon, they were not being sold at normal book prices.

    Hi Joel! How do you interpret Zechariah 13.8? Will be a time in future when Israel will suffer a terrible lost, 2/3 of population? I read so many times and to me it doesn’t seem obviously to interpret it chronological. Verse 7 reffers to Jesus Christ and was fulfilled. So can I interrpret it as reffering to 70 A.D.? I would be glad to know your opinion. Greatings, blessings and prayers for you mission from Austria. Thank you!

  • Joel
    Posted at 13:59h, 13 February

    I think it is likely yet to come. To use it to refer to 70 A.D. I think is deeply problematic. Verse 1 is clearly eschatological as is verse 9. I think the ultimate fulfillment is eschatological. I hope it is not so.
