In my understanding, there are a lot of discussions about false prophets; but is there prophecy that anticipates the kind of huge Islamic challenge we're witnessing in the world?
ESV - 24 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.

I humbly submit for your consideration the last book of the New Testament that being The Revelation of Jesus Christ by John. (Isaiah 42:9; Isaiah 46:10; Isaiah 48:16) (Revelation 6:8) I looked, and there before me was a “PALE” horse! It’s rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. In the original text the word was not “PALE” is was “GREEN” but since no one at that time had ever seen a green horse, is was translated as lite or pale green and then later to simply pale. (Deuteronomy 29:29; John 7:24; Luke 8:10) The significance of the color green would not be revealed until the seventh century and the start of Islam with it's official color being green as seen on everything Muslim today. If you read the scripture with green now replacing pale, does it not leave you with a vivid modern day picture of the 57 Islamic countries where Islam rules currently. And also the ways in which it chooses to expand that rule into other peaceful countries. Surah 5:33 The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter; Note: Where ever a Muslin places his foot that land becomes Islamic in their view. Odd that, one does not see many welcome signs on the very cosmopolitan European continent today, as when the Islamic military invasion, oh excuse me "refugee resettlement" began in early 2016? (Psalms 46:6; Psalms 75:2; Psalms 75:3) In The Lord’s Freedom and knowledge …. Warrior on
EVIDENCE OF ISLAMIC CHALLENGE IN NEW TESTAMENT In my opinion, evidence of Islamic challenge exist in various scriptures in the New Testament but I wish to use precisely the text quoted below to highlight my views on this subject. I do not intend to compare doctrines to bring out my views in order not to offend the sensibilities of other readers, but I will stick to what is said in the Bibe. TEXT: Galatians 4:22-31 KJV  For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.  But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.  Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.  For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.  But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.  For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.  Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.  But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.  Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.  So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free. The scripture above is very clear on the status of these two children of Abraham and if the statement in Genesis concerning the occupation of the son of the bond woman is something to go by, he is still on course.... Genesis 21:20-21 KJV  And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer.  And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt. Ishmael had twelve children as promised Abraham by God: Genesis 25:13-15 KJV  And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,  And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,  Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. My recent search on Google for at least six of these children of Ishmael revealed these children to have settled in various parts of present day Arabia, Hebron, Palestine, Syria and these are strongholds of Islam today. The text cited above is very clear on the challenge of Islam when it stated that: 28] Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.  But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. There are other evidences but I wish to stop so far.
Let's consider all religions that are false and their basic characteristics. 1. Follow all these impossible rules and you will get to heaven. 2. The rules change so quickly from generation to generation you can't keep up with the changes. 3. All religions prior to Judaism practiced paganistic practices like sacrifice of family members, children, slaves or enemies. 4. All have a form of works righteousness. You do x, y and z and your in. 5. Then their is the ones where you get new chances coming back and living another life in another body until you get perfected. Please! Then their is Christianity. It has two rules love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind soul and body. The secound commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself. Christianity says you will never be able to be perfect but your to strive for perfection all the days of your life. You are not worthy even then for heaven because you will never be perfect. So a perfect man called Jesus was perfect and was another manifestation of God. Who is holy and perfect. He is sacrificed for all of humanities sins and raised from the dead. Now this God who greated all good things says you must accepted and believe in this man my only beggton son born of a vigin. If you trust and believe in His sons attonment for your personal sins. You are pardoned of all your sins past, present and future if you repent of them sincerely as they occur. And God the Father the creater pardons you again and again faithfully. Because he who knew no sin layed down his life for all of humanities sins for those that beleive in him. By beleiveing your sins are attoned for and your righteouness which is as filthy rags are imputed, covered, attoned for and forgiven. Your sentence that you deserve is totally pardoned. If man can pardon law breakers here on earth, then why can't our creator forgive and decide the cost and price for that pardon. Can what he alone created judge his creator that gave him life and eternal life if you except His plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. It is called amazing grace and those who accept it and have it. They alone will know because their life is forever changed. No one can convince them other wise when they have amazing grace.
