“And the fifth angel sounded, and I
saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the
bottomless pit.” [Rev.9:1]
The fifth trumpet.-For an exposition of this trumpet, we
shall draw from the writings of Alexander Keith: “There is scarcely so uniform
an agreement among interpreters concerning any other part of the Apocalypse as
respecting the application of the fifth and sixth trumpets, or the first and
second woes, to the Saracens and the Turks.-3rd ed.,The Signs of the
Times. Edingburgh, William Whyte and Co.,1833.
The Roman Empire declined, as it arose, by conquest; but
the Saracenes and the Turks were the instruments by which a false religion
became the scourge of an apostate church; and hence, instead of the fifth and
sixth trumpets, like the former, being marked by that name alone, they are
Constantinople was besieged for the first time after the
extinction of the Western Empire by Chosroes II, the king of Persia.
The prophet said:
“I saw a star
fall from heaven unto the earth; and to him was given the key of the bottomless
The historian Edward Gibbon writes, “While the Persian
monarch [Chosroes] contemplated the wonders of his art and power, he received an
epistle from an obscure citizen of Mecca, inviting him to acknowledge Muhammad as
the apostle of God. He rejected the invitation, and tore the epistle. “It is
thus,” exclaimed the Arabian prophet, ’that god will tear the kingdom, and reject
the supplication of Chosroes.’
Placed on the verge of the two great Empires of the East,
Mahomet observed with secret joy the progress of their mutual destruction; and
in the midst of the Persian triumphs, he ventured to foretell, that before many
years should elapse, victory should again return to the banners of the Romans.
At the time when this prediction is said to have been delivered, no prophecy
could be more distant from its accomplishment, since the first twelve years of
Heraclius announced the approaching dissolution of the Empire.”--- The Decline
and Fall of the Roman Empire.” Vol.IV,ch.46,pp.463,464.
It was not on a single spot that this star fell, as did the
one that designated Attila, but upon the earth. The Provinces of the empire in
Asia and Africa were subdued by Chosroes II, and “The Roman Empire was reduced
to the walls of Constantinople, with the remnants of Greece, Italy and Africa,
and some maritime cities, from Tyre to Trebizond, of the Asiatic coast………..The
experience of six years at length persuaded the Persian monarch to renounce the
conquest of Constantinople, and to specify the annual tribute or ransom of the
Roman Empire; a thousand talents of gold etc.
The Persian and Roman monarchies exhausted each other’s
strength. And before a sword was put into the hands of the false prophet, it
was smitten from the hands of those who would have checked his career and
crushed his power.
The bottomless pit needed a key to open it, and that was
the fall of Chosroes. He had torn the letter of an obscure citizen of Mecca.
Chosroes was murdered in 628 A.D. and the year 629 is marked by “The conquest of
Arabia” and the first war of the Mohammedans against the Roman Empire.
The bottomless pit. The meaning of this term may be
learned from the Greek Abyssos, which is defined “deep, bottomless, profound,”
and may refer to any waste, desolate, and uncultivated place. It is applied to
the earth in its original state of chaos [Gen.1:2].
In this instance it may appropriately refer to the unknown
wastes of the Arabian desert, from the borders of which issued the hordes of
Saracens, like swarms of locusts.
“And he opened the bottomless pit;
and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the
sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.” [v.2].
“like the noxious and even deadly vapors which the winds,
particularly from the southwest, diffuse in Arabia, Mohammedanism spread from
hence its pestilential influence-arose as suddenly and spread as widely as smoke
arising out of a pit, the smoke of a great furnace. Such is a suitable symbol
of the religion of Mahomet, of itself, or as compared with the pure light of the
gospel of JESUS. It was not like the latter, a light from heaven, but a smoke
out of the bottomless pit.
“And there came out of the smoke
locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the
earth have power.” [v.3].
“A false religion was set up, which, although a scourge of
transgressions and idolatry, filled the world with darkness and delusions; and
swarms of Saracens, like locusts, overspread the earth, and speedily extended
their ravages over the Roman Empire from east to west.
The hail descended from the frozen shores of the Baltic;
the burning mountains fell upon the sea of Africa; and the locusts [a fit symbol
of the Arabs] issued from Arabia, their native region. The deadly venom can be
seen on the quarrels of the Arab world. For 25 years Iraq and Iran warred each
other. Only an incident, a contemptuous word, can only be expiated by the blood
of the offender. Blasphemy charges are common against westerners also.
“Ánd it was commanded them that
they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither
any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.”
How fittingly this was fulfilled, when after the death of
Muhammad, he was succeeded in command by Abu-bekr in 632 A.D. gathering all Arab
tribes for conquest and gave these instructions:
When you fight the
battles of the Lord, acquit yourselves like men, without turning your backs; but
let not your victory be stained with the blood of women and children. Destroy
no palm trees, nor burn any fields of corn. Cut down no fruit trees, nor do any
mischief to cattle, only such as you need to eat.
When you make any covenant, or article, stand to it, and be
as good as your word. As you go on, you will find some religious persons who
live retired in monasteries, and propose to serve God that way; let them alone,
and neither kill them nor destroy their monasteries: and you’ll find another
sort of people that belong to the synagogue of Satan, who have shaven crowns; be
sure to cleave their skulls, and give them no quarter till they either turn
Mohammedans or pay tribute.---Ed. Gibbons
“And it was given that they should
not kill them, but that they should be tormented five month: and their torment
was as the torment of a scorpion, when he strikes a man.” [v.5].
Using the solid and proven old Protestant method of
prophetic time interpretation, a day for a year [Ezek.4:6 Numb.14:34] the five
month are 30 days X 5, or 150 years of Arab aggression.
In 1838 A.D., Josiah Litch, a member of the Millerites,
worked out from this prophecy that the Ottoman Empire, which was formed on July
27, 1299 A.D., the Greek part of the Roman Empire, would come to an end in 1449
A.D. under the succeeding trumpet, completing the five prophetic month or 150
literal years when Othman planted his seat in Constantinople.
“And in those days shall men seek
death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from
Men were weary of life, when life was spared only for a
renewal of woe, and when all that they held dear and sacred was violated and
constantly endangered, and when the savage Saracens domineered over them, or
left them only a momentary repose, ever liable to be suddenly or violently
interrupted, as if by a sting of a scorpion.
“And the shapes of the locusts were
like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns
like gold, and their faces were faces of men.” [v.7].
The Arabian horses take the lead throughout the world; and
skill in horsemanship is the art and science of Arabia. The turban is the
miters they wore. The gravity and firmness of the mind [of the Arab]…is the
stroking of his beard, the venerable symbol of manhood……which honor was easily
“And they had hair as the hair of
women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.” [v.8].
Long hair is esteemed an ornament of women. The Arabs,
unlike to other men of their time, had their hair as the hair of women, or
uncut, as their practice is recorded by Pliny and others. But there was nothing
effeminate in their character; for,, as denoting their ferocity and strength to
devour, their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
“And they had breastplates, as it
were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was the sound of
chariots of many horses running to battle.” [v.9].
The cuirass, or breastplate, was in use among the Arabs in
the days of Mahomet. In his second battle which he fought at Ohud with the
Koreish of Mecca, seven hundred of them were armed with cuirasses.
“And they had tails like unto
scorpions, and they were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men
5 month. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless
pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue has his
name Apollyon.” [v.10,11].
The same 5 month as above, undoubtedly the same they were
afterwards to slay [see v.15], the third part of men, or the third of the Roman
Empire---the Greek division of it. When were they to begin their torment? The
11th verse answers the question: “They had a king over them.” From
the death of Mohammed until the 13th century, they were divided into
various factions until Othman founded the Ottoman Empire consolidating them into
one grand monarchy.
“One woe is past; and behold, there
comes two woes more hereafter. And the 6th angel sounded, and I
heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
saying to the 6th angel which had the trumpet, loose the four angels
which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosened,
which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay
the third part of men.” [vv.12-15].
The Sixth Trumpet.--- The first woe was to continue from
the rise of Mohammedanism until the end, and the second begin. And when the
sixth angel sounded, it was commanded to take off the restraint which had been
imposed on the nation, by which they were restricted to the work of
‘tormenting’ men, and their commission extended to slay the third part of men.
This commission came from the four horns of the golden altar.
The four angels.---These are the four principal sultanies
of which the Ottoman Empire was composed, located in the country watered by the
Euphrates, Aleppo, Iconium, Damascus, and Bagdad. Previously they had been
restrained; but GOD commanded, and they were loosed. Loosened for a prophetic
year or 360 days of years, a month of 30 days or 30 literal years,=390 plus one
prophetic day is another year=391 and an hour is 15 days= 391 years and 15
Commencing when the 150 years ended in 1449 A.D. the second
woe and the sixth angel sounded, this period would end August 11, 1840 when the
Ottoman Turks put themselves under the protectorate of the western powers and
came to an end.
Note: The Swiss Reformer Heinrich Bullinger [1575 A.D.]
was one of the first Biblical Expositor to identify the Turks as the power under
the sixth trumpet. In 1838 A.D. Josiah Litch set July 27, 1299 as the first
attack by the Ottoman Turks on the Byzantine Empire under the fifth trumpet. 150
years, constituted the time in which the Ottoman Turks tormented the Byzantine
Empire, brought us to July 27, 1449 for the beginning of the sixth trumpet.
Adding 391 years brought us to July 27, 1840. The extra 15 days carried over to
August 11 the exact date, when the Turks had thought and found help from the
western allies Britain, Austria, Prussia and Russia, who all had
interests in the Near East. On the 15th of July these powers signed
the treaty of London.
The Turkish emissary Rifat Bey arrived on August 11 at
Alexandria with the terms of the London convention.
Here comes a major point. Revelation chapter nine brings
us to 1840. The little prophetic book in the angel’s hand of Revelation chapter
10 brought the great and bitter disappointment of 1844 at the end of the 2300
days of years when Jesus would enter the most holy place of the heavenly
sanctuary to cleanse and justify it.
Remembering that in the original there were no chapter
divisions and so we see that chapter 11 speaks of the heavenly Temple Sanctuary
cleansing, measuring, judgment hour also reflected by Rev.14:6-12. And the
angel swore by heaven’s Creator GOD that prophetic time would all end at the
great and bitter disappointment, namely 1844 A.D.
The starting point for the 2300 days of years in Daniel
8:14 is the same as that of Daniel 9:24-27 given by King Artaxerxes in 457 B.C.
arriving at 408 B.C., 27 A.D., 31 A.D., 34 A.D. and 1844 A.D. given by the
Scribe Ezra in chapter seven.
I welcome any discussion to clarify some points even
further. The four angels above, were not holy unfallen, but evil angels used by
GOD as a scourge for a fallen and apostate Christian Church.
Note: The London Morning Chronicle
of August 12,1840, reported that the ultimatum reached Alexandria yesterday,
August 11, 1840 and the plans of the four powers which details had yet to be
worked out. The ultimatum was to the Pacha of Agypt to release the Ottoman
fleet within 10 days before deliberating it by force.
Muslims imported by Queen Victoria
Her most Christian Majesty Queen
Victoria, proud of her official title as "Defender Of The Faith" with one fourth
of the world's population under the 'Union Jack' was unwittingly one of the most
effective propagators of the Moslem faith in the whole history of Islam.
As a direct result of her
governments' actions, the teachings of the prophet were spread to the remote
areas of the globe. In her time, Muslims from India were hired as
indentured servants to South Africa, West Indonesia and Fiji. Even that
outpost of the empire, Australia, received its first small injection of Islam
when some 3.000 Afghans were invited by the British colonial authorities around
the 1860's, as camel drivers and labourers on the railways and telegraph
The first Mosque was built in
Adelaide, by the same Afghan immigrants, more than 100 years ago. Today it
is estimated that in Australia's 16 million population there are more than
250.000 Muslims. This means that every 60's Australian is worshipping in
the direction of Mecca. World-wide, Islam claims one billion adherents.
The latest and largest influx of Muslim immigrants to Australia has come within
the last 25 years as a result of unrest in different parts of the Middle East.
Although few in numbers, the immigrants have made an impact on Australian
Society. Their religious beliefs and practices, although rooted in
Judaism, seem somewhat strange to Christians.
What it means to be a Muslim
Muslim means 'surrender' with the implication
of 'surrender to Allah'. The religion was first taught by the Islamic
prophet Muhammad, between 610 A.D. and 632 A.D. in what is now called Saudi
Arabia. An adherent to Islam is called a Muslim [not a Mohammedans], which
means 'one who has surrendered to Allah'. Allah is one supreme God.
The Koran [Quran], the holy book of Islam, is regarded as the direct word of
God, revealed to Muhammad in vision.
The five pillars of Islam
These are the basis for the religion and
comprise the Shahadah, affirming that 'there is no God but Allah and
Muhammad is the messenger of Allah'; The Salah, the five times daily
ritual prayer; The Zakah, giving alms; The Sawn, fasting in the
month of Ramadan; and the Hajj, pilgrimage to Mecca once in a life time.
Suddenly these Muslims people in
relatively large numbers have arrived in our traditionally Christian countries.
Some of them have not revealed any serious attempt to integrate into the new
society. Their dietary rules, polygamy and funeral rites, have often
brought conflict with existing Christians order and culture. These hundred
of thousands of adherents to the most gospel-resistant world religion have
become our closest Neighbours that we can show our love in CHRIST.
Both the Papacy and Islam arose to power at
about the same time. The Papacy influenced the Western part of the
Roman empire, while Islam during the 100 years of conquest from 632
to 732, conquered the Eastern part of the Roman empire, extending its
dominion from North Africa until the Far East (Agfanistan, Pakistan,
Both the Papacy and Islam persecuted God's people.
The Muslim were even more brutal than the papacy by radically
uprooting Christianity from many countries. The North African
countries of Libya, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, were all flourishing
Christian countries. Today you can count the number of Christians
with the fingers.
Both promoted the false worship of God through the
intercession of human beings (Mary, venerated also by the Moslem,
Mohammed, the Saints). Both changed God's Holy Sabbath Day: the
Papacy changed the Sabbath to Sunday, and Mohammed changed the
Sabbath to Friday.
When we look at the total picture, it would seem to
me that expanding the prophetic role of the Little Horn Antichrist,
by including Islam in addition to the papacy, is a reasonable
Do Moslems believe in JESUS CHRIST?
This question is asked most. The answer is yes and no. The Qur'an
contradicts itself. Sura Maryam 19:33 speaks of the death and the
resurrection of Jesus. And so does Sura Al-Imran 3:55 in the original
Arabic but has been distorted in the English translation.
Yet in Sura An-Nisa 4:157 all this is being
contradicted. First the Qur'an says that Christ died, then it says that he did
not die. It says that he was crucified and than it says that he wasn't. Muslim
scholars can give no answer concerning these contradictions. Muhammad's first
wife was a Christian and so was his uncle Reverend Waraqa from which he learned
most of the Bible. But the would be prophet learned also how to distort the
facts and how to contradict himself.
The Israel-Palestinian conflict is the very centre of the
Middle East crisis in every respect, beginning with Islamic terrorism around the
world down to the local catastrophes in every Middle East conflict.
This is so because the sides are fighting for religious principle. The Muslim
side is fighting the "Crusaders", who are the "Big Satan", the US, which gives
power to the "Little Satan", Israel. The acts of world wide terrorism are
interpreted as acts of liberation and revenge in support of the suffering
Palestinians. Thus the killing and maiming of innocents in London is seen as
justified revenge for Israeli aggression against Palestinians and Lebanese.
And the blend of Al Qaeda and Taliban on the Pakistan border is motivated by
precisely this kind of logic. They are fighting a holy war for the recovery of
their holy city Jerusalem, and IN AFGHANISTAN.
www.haaretz.com is one of the best places to
follow this conflict in detail. As the only large liberal paper in Israel, it
reveals that there are sane and reasonable people of influence in Israel, but
that, as throughout the Middle East, the ignorant and the nutty are in the
majority. And these are all religious.
Who was Muhammad?
His full name was Muhammad
bin Abd Allah. He named his god after himself. He is the founder of the Islamic
religion and not the Arabic original religion connected with Abraham of
the Old Testament. Muhammad claimed to be a prophet of God and supposed to
have received messages from the angel Gabriel.
Muhammad started his religion
by marrying a rich Christian woman by the name of Khadija many years older than
himself. With her money he hired mercenaries and robbed caravans and later on
cities as his army and wealth grew. Muhammad's intention was not fighting
and killing unbelievers, but robbing a rich caravan. His lust for woman even as
young as 9 year old knew no restrictions. Husbands were forced to divorce their
spouces so he and his fellow bandits could rape them.
Muhammad made many good laws
but they did not apply to himself. He even forced women during their mentrual
periods which was forbidden in the Sura of The Cow [See Sura Al-Baqara 2:222].
Muhammad had eleven wives and Maymuna and Umm Salma complained: "Muhammad, the
messenger of Allah used to have sexual intercourse with me during my menstrual
period, while a piece of garment is between us." [See the Hadith of Sahih
Muslim, book 3, #577-581.
Muslims know that weddings
during the month of pilgrimage are forbidden in the Qur'an. Despite this fact,
Muhammad married Maymuna bint Al-Harith during the pilgrimage season. Was
it possible for Muhammad to restrain himself until the end of the pilgrimage
season? That evening he said to her: "A verse descended onto me: ....And any
believing woman who dedicates her soul to the prophet if the prophet wishes to
wed her - this is only for thee, and not for the Believers [at large]...in order
that there should be no difficulty for thee... [Sura Al-Sahab [the Allies]
Muhammad made it lawful for a
brother to kill his brother, or a father to kill his son, or a son to kill his
father in order to spread Islam. However, this law was not applicable to the
relatives of Mohammad:
"Whoever of you finds someone
of the children of Hashem, you should kill him; and whosoever finds my uncle,
Al-Abbas, you should kill him."---source, Hudhayfah Ibn al-Yaman
"Do we than kill our sons,
our fathers, our uncles and our kinfolk but we let alone Al-Abbas because he is
your uncle? Umar almost killed him because he dared to confront the Prophet of
Allah."---Hadith of Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 5, Book 59, #354; Vol.9, Book 83, #5;
and the Hadith of Sahih muslim, Book 1, #173-175.
It is clear that that Islam
arose on the foundation of terrorism. It began by raiding, killing, stealing and
robbing the caravans of Quraish who were coming from Damascus to Mecca. it went
on to assaulting the Jews. Today Christian churches get attacked and robbed and
the Christians killed without remorse or feeling of guilt because their founder
taught them to do it. This foundation has nothing to do with love, mercy and
compassion. The main purpose of Muhammad's raids and invasions was to gain
wealth and acquire beautiful women. After the battle of Badr, Muhammad took
seventy women captive.
How can we compare their
faith and action with Christ, who said: "Love you enemies, bless them that curse
you."---Matthew 5:44. They may point to the religion of Rome and the
inquisition, and we say that they did the devil's work also for the very same
purpose, and that is, to spread false religion.
We plead with any follower of Islam to study their literature
and not remain ignorant and see that their religion was founded the same time as
the religion of Rome and have much in common including Fatima but very far
removed from the religion of JESUS CHRIST.
FATWA is not just a killing licence, but a command to kill issued by a
Moslem Leader! Fear keeps their worshippers in their religion. They are not
allowed freedom to choose CHRIST because they will be ostracized not only by
their families but by the nation itself.
Islamic Africa is the home of the hideous practice of female circumcision
or genital mutilation, the precious pink bits belonging to vulnerable
Sudan-Darfur- they are called Janjaweed demons on horseback - and
there favoured tactic is to attack villages at dawn, shooting the men, raping
the women and burning the children alive in their huts. They are the Arab
militia of Darfur in western Sudan where it is estimated that 200,000 people
have been killed and 2.5 Million left homeless in a four year conflict which
continues to fester as rival groups battle to control the oil rich region.
Backed by the Sudanese government. Arabs are slaughtering black Africans with a
ferocity which U.S. President George W. Bush has called genocidal. Unfortunately
for those being shot, hack ed, raped and crucified -- another Arab speciality

Mecca:In Mecca during Muhammad's day there was a temple containing
360 idols, one of which was Al-ilah or Allah, which had been recognized as the
of Muhammad's tribe for centuries. It was the moon god, and the sign of the
crescent moon that is so prominent in Islam "harks back to the early Arab
worship of Allah as the moon god" . Muhammad received revelations that Allah was
not merely a chief tribal god but the only true God and that Muhammad was his
chosen and exclusive prophet.
Surah 2:256 in the Koran says, "Let there be no compulsion
in religion. Truth stands out clear from Error." When that plan failed, he
picked up the sword, and for the rest of his life he used the sword to force
adherence to Islam. Many of the prophecies Mohammed gave during this later
period contradict the earlier prophecies and demand war against unbelievers.
