Many Christians believe that the antichrist will come from a revived Roman Empire. Lately, through the teachings of Joel Richardson, author of The Islamic Antichrist (see sidebar) and others, a good argument has been made for the antichrist coming from the Islamic world.
With everything you hear about Islam, beheadings and the desire to reestablish an Islamic Caliphate, the cause for an Islamic Antichrist makes a lot of sense.
Jacob Prasch recently put out a teaching on this topic. I think it is fascinating and a must watch for those of you keeping an eye on Biblical prophecy. You’ll have to get past the first 9 minutes or so, where Jacob talks about the history of the Roman Empire and its borders (I’ve provide a map for you below the video).
Let me know what you think!
