Islam, for all intents and purposes, appears poised to conquer the world.
Islam’s growth rate has risen 500% over the last 50 years as their birth rate dwarfs the birth rates of all other religions. Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population and control 65 nations. Between the twin strategies of holy war (jihad) and immigration, Muslims are expected to exceed 50% of the world’s population and surpass Christianity as the largest religion by the end of the 21st Century.
By all indications and by every statistic, Islam will indeed conquer the world. Churches will eventually become mosques. Your children will eventually become Muslims, or die for refusing. That is the direction the world is plunging towards right now.
Or, is it?
I would argue, no. Praise the Lord! Islam has an end according to the Bible. The Bible foretells of three prophetic wars that are coming soon which I believe will absolutely end Islam as a viable religion in the end times.The #Bible foretells of three prophetic wars that are coming soon which will absolutely end #Islam as a viable #religion in the #EndTimes.

1) The Psalm 83 War
The first end time war, the Psalm 83 War, strikes at the geographical heart of Islam. It’s a war in which Israel will have to deal with its hostile bordering neighbors: Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, and Jordan. Israel and these nations repeatedly getting into skirmishes cannot last much longer. Israel needs to do something about living under the constant threat of missile attack. And, according to Psalm 83, when this prophecy is fulfilled, Israel will control those border nations and gain a brief peace.
2) The Gog-Magog War (Ezekiel 38-39)
The second war which follows is found in Ezekiel 38-39. The Gog-Magog War is one of the best described prophetic wars in all the Bible, covering two whole chapters. This exciting war will be a major world-changer.
The Gog-Magog War foretells how Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya, all those ‘Stan nations, and the other countries that form an outer ring of Islamic nations will war against Israel. Israel appears undefeatable after the Psalm 83 War, and so all of those nations combine into a coalition in order to make an attempt to plunder and destroy Israel.
What happens? These hordes, these uncountable armies; well Israel has no chance of standing up against them. Israel appears doomed!
But, the Bible reveals that God will make His appearance back on the earth, not physically, but He Himself personally annihilates the invading hordes, so that there’s no denying God is behind this divine rescue. God intervenes using biblical types of judgments such as fire and brimstone, making the armies turn on each other, and being decimated by earthquakes. God even rains fire down on the homelands of these invading nations. The entire coalition of Islamic armies, along with Russia, are almost utterly destroyed.
For a religion that’s based on having to destroy one’s enemies for Allah’s honor, and then Allah loses every single last days war big time, I believe these end time wars are going to gut Islam before the Tribulation begins.
3) The Conventional War of the Tribulation (Revelation 6)
The third prophetic end time war should finally hammer the nail in the coffin of Islam.
Despite Islam’s might in the world today, there’s no mention of Islam during the Tribulation. Rather, we glean from the Bible that during the Tribulation four religions will exist. One, there will be Christianity made up of those Tribulation Saints who accepted Christ after the Rapture. Two, there’s Judaism. The Antichrist spends much of his time persecuting Tribulations Saints and Jews. Three, there’s the early Tribulation Harlot religion, made up of a conglomeration of world religions. At first she seems in charge, but the Antichrist is really just using her for his own ends. And four, halfway through the Tribulation, the Antichrist stomps out all competing religions and sets himself up as the sole object of worship.
Now, if you can’t have another religion competing with you, especially a militaristic religion like Islam which demands there are no other religions besides itself, what do you do with it? You have to annihilate it. And, the biggest populations of Muslims in the world, most don’t realize, live in Indonesia and Bangladesh and other eastern nations outside of the Middle East. So, more than likely, the Antichrist is going to spend the beginning of his reign annihilating Islam so that there’s no competitor to setting himself up as the true global ruler.
How tragic that 1.5 billion people will die from the Antichrist’s Conventional War. But after that war, the Islamic map should be wiped clean.
Looking at these three biblical end time wars, I can only conclude that Islam doesn’t have much of a future left to it. A Psalm 83 War could break out at any minute, along with the destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17). These world-shaking events could literally occur at any moment. The Gog-Magog alliance of nations already exists. Europe is so fragile that they are ready for a strong leader to take over. Everything has lined up and is in place.
And so, according to the Bible, Islam has very little time left to it.

Nathan, could you please explain how Psalm 83 prophecies a current day war. I’m having trouble understanding it as I read it…..I mean seeing the prophecy for today’s times. Thank you in advance~
Connie, many Bible prophecy teachers believe this Syrian war will end in the prophetic fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and particularly verse 9 and Jeremiah 49 which give the credit for the destruction of Damascus to Israel. For further info, check out http://www.lamblion.us/2008/08/prophetic-end-of-damascus.html.
We may also be seeing the precursor to the Psalm 83 War, which read as an imprecatory prayer calls down judgment and justice upon an enemy. In Psalm 83, all the nations that are listed have modern equivalents as the nations that surround Israel. Israel has never fully subjugated those lands since becoming a nation again in 1948. If they did, that would answer the question as to why the Ezekiel 38-39 Gog-Magog countries do not include the nations bordering Israel, but rather an outer ring of Islamic nations.
Psalm 83 is only a prophetic theory, but one that fills in a gap long questioned. It also would provide a peaceful precondition to the Gog-Magog Battle because the outer ring of Muslim nations would fear Israel’s greater expanse of power in the region and control of more resources, hence Gog’s desire to plunder Israel.

Nathan, you are SO thorough and helpful!!!
You have given me clarity where I had none as well as much to read/listen to for further understanding.
I am truly grateful,
You’re welcome, Connie!
1. Islam will NOT go away until Christ returns on the Day of the Lord (Judgement Day).
2. Islam is 27% of the world—soon to be 33%. Islam is spiritual death. (Revelation 9:13-21)
3. Mohammad is the False Prophet. There will NEVER be another prophet in Islam. Read the Koran. Few prophecy experts have studied the Koran. It is directly from Satan. Mohammad is the “seal of the prophets” in the Koran. All Muslims know Mohammad was the final prophet.
4. Since 610, Mohammad has taken five billion souls down the wrong path.
5. Revelation’s Image is the Kaaba Blackstone in Mecca. Mohammad placed the Blackstone in the Kaaba. The Blackstone was originally at Pergamum. It is the same Ephesus stone “that fell from heaven” in Acts 19:32-41. “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” It was associated with Artemis and Cybill worship at first, then Islam. Therefore, Jesus hated the actions of the Nicolaitans. Nicolaitans are only at both Pergamum and Ephesus. All Islamic prayer (the “Qibla”) is the precise direction of the Blackstone.
6. This is why Jesus gives the opposite “white stone” of truth of Revelation 2:12-17.
7. Kaaba in Mecca is the “wicked house” in Babylon of Zechariah 5:6-11.
8. Mecca is in Babylon. “Mystery Babylon” is Mecca.
9. Revelation’s Mark is the Shahada. “There is no God but Allah. Mohammad is the messenger of Allah.”
10. Shahada’s final form was finished in the year 666. Shahada was from Mohammad.
11. Shahada is Satan’s copy of the Shema.
12. Koran’s false story of Jesus is the “dark smoke” of Revelation 9:1-11.
13. The Four Horsemen are the first four Islamic leaders, Mohammad, Abu-Bakr, Umar, Uthman. They had authority over one quarter of the world with the Umayyad Caliphate.
14. Umar is the “king will do as he pleases” in Daniel 11.
15. Dome of the Rock (688) and Al-Aqsa Mosque (706) are Daniel’s abominations.
16. 1260 Days/Years in the wilderness are from 688 to 1948.
17. The 42 Months (1278.4 Days/Years) of trampling the Holy City are 688 to 1967.
18. Mohammad was taken on night ride from Mecca to the Outer Court, precisely where the Dome of the Rock is today. That is why Revelation 11 says to exclude the Outer Court. The Dome of the Rock gives false testimony that Jesus is not God and was not crucified.
19. Psalm 83 war was 1948 war for Israel’s independence.
20. The False Prophet is NOT at the battle in Revelation 19. Many people teach he leads this battle, but John DOES NOT see him. John only sees the beast and kings. He does not see the False Prophet in the battle. The False Prophet is punished on the Day of the Lord.
Gregory, that’s an awful lot of conjecture. Have any biblical proofs to back up your points?
Mr. Jones I have to agree a little with Mr. Kasten. I’ll have to do more research. What I do know about islam is that they do follow satan. It was a jin (devil) in Arabic that 1st approached mohammad. It was his 1st wife that convinced mohammad that it was the angel Gaberial. The muslim worship at the kaabah just as the Arabic pagans did.
I may be wrong but I think islam is the end-times one world religion that we have to watch out for.
These wars explain the mentioned Muslim countries being destroyed. But there will be Muslim “influenced” countries still in existence. With “Europislam” being formed now, might this at least partially explain why the nations of Europe come against Israel at the battle of Armageddon?
Thank you and David for your teachings
The war in Psalm 83 and Ekekiel 38-39 are both the same war as armageddon in Rev 16:16.
The tribulation period in Rev 6 is from antichrist who is islamic; he is given a sword; who is chopping off heads with a sword already today? Rev 13:10 shows the sword being used as well. The mark in Rev 13 is most likely the islamic head band they are already wearing on their head and arms.
The bigger problem is the pretrib rapture teaching that isn’t Biblical and was invented in the 1800’s and the church never believed it and most of the world doesn’t believe it except in America.
You wrote a very good and informative Article. There are a few ideas I agree with, and a few I am not. The positive side, “Islam has an end according to the Bible.” Yes!
Negatives: The names and order of the three end time wars, in my opinion, are incorrect. In your analyses of Psalm 83 war(s) I detect too much influence of Bill Salus whose position is very questionable, to say it at the best. The participants of this war(s) are not necessary of the ‘inner cycle’ countries: Edom (Turkey) and Assur (Germany, EU) geographically located in Europe. There will not be Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Libya, and Iran in this war(s).
Would you like to know why? Because these nations will be defeated and subjugated by the victorious king of the north (Germany-Assur- European Union) with the help of Edom-Turkey in the wars of the kings of the north and south (the short-lived Islamic Caliphate of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya, and Ethiopia). All of these events are clearly described by the prophet Daniel 11:40-45. One should not neglect the importance of this Scriptural prophecy. Accordingly, the first prophesied war of the end time will be these wars, including additional information on the demise of Iran (Jeremiah 49:34-39). Soon after, in a little while, will begin the war(s) of Psalm 83, which include the destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17:1). And the third war of Gog and Magog will happen in a distant future, when all the House of Israel will be reunited, with the Messiah son of David in its midst, all the enemies will be defeated, the Land of Israel will be according to the Biblical borders, and, what is very imperative, Israel will live safe and secure as Ezekiel 38:8, 14 confirms.
I have study the Psalm 83 war somewhat. I wrote this a few years ago:
INDEED, THE LORD GOD DOES NOTHING WITHOUT REVEALING HIS COUNSEL TO HIS SERVANTS THE PROPHETS.
Psalm 83 War-
I have been studying this particular prophecy for about 5 years now and telling folks that this war will occur before the Ezekiel 38-39 war.
I believe there are other prophecies that tell what will be the results of this war.
While Psalm 83 speaks directly to which nations will be involved Psalm 118: 10-12 speaks of the destruction of the enemies that surround Israel.
Here is my layout of this war and its results:
THE WAR OF PSALM 83 AND PSALM 118: 10 – 12
Ishmaelites (Northern Arabia)
Hagrites (East of the Dead Sea)
Gebal (Northern Arabia near Petra)
Amalek (N.E. Sinai Peninsula and the Negev (Southern Palestine)
Philistia (Coastal Plain of S.W. Palestine) (Gaza)
It is my belief that Egypt will somehow be destroyed during this confrontation as prophecied in Ezekiel 29: 8-12 and Ezekiel 32: 12 – 15. Egypt will be a wasteland for 40 years. I feel that Isaiah 19:1-3 is occurring now.
I believe that the destruction of Damascus as foretold in Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49: 23 – 27 will occur during this war.
Also Isaiah 15 speaks of other destruction during this time.
The following verses speak of the results of this war, also some of these speak of the build up to the war:
Isaiah 34: 5 – 10
Ezekiel 28: 25 – 26
Isaiah 11:15 – This verse describes God splitting the Euphrates into seven streams which, I believe is also Revelation 16:12 that dries the river to make way for the kings of the East.
Isaiah 17:1 & 14
Jeremiah 25:8-14 – Extent of Jordan’s destruction, from central Saudi Arabia to 50 South of the Dead Sea.
JEREMIAH 29:8-12 – EGYPT WILL BE DESOLATE FOR 40 YEARS
JEREMIAH 32:12-15 – MORE ON EGYPT
EZEKIEL 36:5 – WHY GOD DESTROYS THESE NATIONS
Jordan and portions of Saudi Arabia will be wiped out and become a waste from 50 miles south of the Dead Sea to Dedan, now known as Al-Ula in central Saudi Arabia. As foretold in Ezekiel 25: 6 – 14.
I believe that Isaiah 11:14 tells us that Israel will increase in size because of this war.
I agree with you all that Ezekiel 38 and 39 do not mention these nations because they have been destroyed by the Psalm 83 war. This includes not mentioning Egypt while it does mention Cush and Put. I believe that this war will allow Israel to increase in size and use the natural resources of the former nations and increase in prosperity and they will feel more secure and let down their guard somewhat. Allowing the Ezekiel 38 – 39 war to occur.
Please let me know your thoughts.
What you are saying, in general, is correct and in line with Nathan, Salus, and others. But there are a few weak spots in your theology with which I cannot agree. One can study the subject all his life and still be wrong.
1 – Without understanding Daniel 11:36-45 it is impossible properly identify nations in Psalm 83. You would not be able to explain why Moab, Ammon (Jordan), and Edom (Turkey) were spared by the king of the north, why Egypt is no more the king of the south as commonly was accepted before and, of course, identities of those kings.
2 – Edom is not Jordan. Edom of the end days is a powerful military nation ‘living by the sword’ which can be defeated only by the combined forces of Joseph (Israel). Jordan is obviously irrelevant to compare.
3 – Assyria is not Iraq. There are many prophecies in Scripture of mighty Assur in our days, which has nothing to do with Iraq. The fact that Assyria in the time of Asaph (3000 years ago) was occupying the territory of Iraq does not make them be Iraq today (or Turkey, Iran, and other countries as many wrongly assumed). You accept that Psalm 83 is the prophecy aiming for the future fulfillment. Asaph was not interesting in his days’ geography. He envisioned with divine precision which nations will be plotted in our days to annihilate Israel. This is a gift of prophecy. Besides, as I mentioned, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Ethiopia, and Iran will not be able to participate in Psalm 83 wars because they were defeated by the king of the north (Daniel 11:40-45).
Amazing, how many scholars ignore or do not understand significance of this prophecy!
For more detailed information on these matters, please read my book “Psalm 83. A new Discovery” Thanks,

Warmest greetings, Brother Nathan et al!
That was a pretty good article for the most part, but I too, see a couple of problems with it.
Amir Tsarfati, a Messianic Jewish prophecy teacher, born and raised in Israel, with fluent understanding of the Hebrew O.T. says the Psalm 83 war has already happened. You can see how he explains this in the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2y8BsiphQs This is his prophecy update from Feb. 10, 2018.
I thought you all might enjoy and appreciate a Jewish brother’s perspective on this.
Further to your message, I’m very confident that Islam will rule supreme because Rev. 20: 4 confirms it. “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands’ and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
Who else on the planet beheads apart from the Muslims? Given that this is revealed so late in John’s vision, I believe they will be the reigning religion until the Second Coming. I’m a real prophecy buff, giving much time to eschatological study, while “watching and waiting” for our Bridegroom to call us home.
However, having said that, there is much about prophecy that cannot be proven until after it happens, e.g. whom the Antichrist is going to be. Unfortunately, some people get so dog-headed about it, that friendships and online dialogue become quite diabolical and unChristlike whenever there is a disagreement. Instead of getting caught up in the foolish and idle speculations in scenarios like this, I leave it in the Lord’s hands, occupying till He comes, and being about my Father’s business. The chips will fall where God has foreordained them to. Blessings!
The term beheaded may just mean killed. Muslims crucify Christians too and believers are killed in other ways as well
