Walid Shoebat on Bible Prophecy

I know some of you are going to hate this stuff, but I love it and I know some of you will enjoy it. Walid Shoebat brings such an interesting perspective to Bible Prophecy and this is a lecture he gave just a couple of weeks ago. It runs for about two hours but I wish there was more. I’ve spent the better part of the day listening to these two videos, pausing them long enough for me to do some research of my own. I will add that there is a very handy site I’ve found for locating ancient territory names such as Edom and Meshech & Tubal called BibleAtlas.org.

The interesting perspective that Shoebat brings is basically that he grew up in the middle east and has a completely different and possibly more accurate understanding of Bible Prophecy than most I’ve ever heard. While the west typically believes that the EU is the center piece of Bible Prophecy, he says that’s completely wrong, that Islam is the center piece and even notes that every country that Christ does battle with in the end is a Muslim country. He says most prophecy experts will agree that Islam means something, but that they will decline before the end. He disagrees with that and unpacks his ideas in this lecture.

As a side note, he ends his lecture by saying that Iran will nuke Saudi Arabia in the future, and that’s according to the Bible. He says that he’s been called a loon for predicting this from the Bible, but says that even the recent wiki-leaked cable suggests that Saudi Arabia knows that Iran is planning on taking them out and that’s why they want our help to prevent it.

  • Don’t know if you watch Niagara Falls Baptist Church videos (youtube) but I really enjoy watching them! Especially the ones pertaining to the end times. It is worth checking out if you don’t know about them! Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/user/NFBCmedia

  • Wait a second here.

    The Middle east according to Philo:

    Saudi Arabia is freaked out that Iran is going to take them out so they want the USA to do their dirty work on Iran while the Saudi’s support terrorists that attack western interests which include the USA.

    What’s the problem?

  • Now how the frick am I going to get anything done with 2 hours of video to watch?

    My xbox is going to have to wait just a bit, I guess.

  • Believe

    Thank you so much for posting this. I really enjoyed it.

    I’ve been walking with the Lord now for 37 of my 60 years by the grace of God and have learned over the years what I wish many of His children knew — that all things that are prophesied in the Scriptures must be fulfilled and that all His words were written for a reason. It was Jesus who underlined that again during his time on earth, rebuking those who did not recognized His coming as foretold beginning in Genesis, in the Psalms, and in the Prophets. And likewise, He said again that everything must be fulfilled.

    Over the course of time I’ve learned to read my Bible with that in mind, and a helpful tool I’d recommend in reading the Bible cover to cover is to use a green marker in Scriptures in the Old Testament for Scriptures regarding Christ, and I use a pink marker in both the Old and New Testaments for all Scriptures that are yet unfulfilled. Then when one of those Scriptures is fulfilled, I highlight over it in yellow. I expect there to be fewer and fewer pink marked passages in my Bible, and perhaps even few to none, even in my lifetime. There is nothing more worthwhile to study than what is important to Him, and what is important to Him is that all Scriptures be fulfilled, just as He said, and to love and revere Him is to believe Him.

    Leave it to those raised in the east to show us western people what is truth. This man, and Ravi Zacharias(an Indian) have changed my life and perspective more than any western man I hold in endearment. Listen to what he has to say, there is truth there which does not normally exist in the western culture.

  • this is great on a very slow news week… thanks

    Yay, a video with Walid! This is great, thanks so much for posting the video! I’ve already read his book about Bible prophecy but I love listening to his lectures!

    Don’t feel strange being curious about the end times, like his co-author Joel Richardson said, 25% of the Bible is prophecy(fulfilled & unfulfilled) so if you follow the Biblical scriptures and ignore prophecy you’re leaving out very important parts of the Bible.

    Finally, at 42:05 (or thereabout in the second half) he mentions Iran.

    I will have to listen to that a couple of more times before I fully understand and I will read Mr. Shoebats book because this made quite a bit of sense to me. It filled in some areas that I have had questions about.

    Very Interesting.

    The christian community in this country better wake up SOON and realize that we are in a Holy War with Islam whether we want to admit it or not. If we continue to go along with the Political Correctness, the Islamist will conquer us from within using our own liberties against us (e.g. freedom of religion and expression, pursuit of happiness, etc. etc.).

    A BFO: If Islam is not a religion but a ‘nation’, then there is no protection for it’s practice in our Constitution. Therefore, we need to debunk the thinking of Islam as a religion and we need to do it loudly, repeatedly and without end.

    Just sayin’

      Ephesians 6:12 tells you who you are at war with. Then it goes on to tell you how to defeat it.

      Christians will never persuade others of the gospel without love-you cannot hold a gun to their head and do to others what radical muslims want to do to those that don’t convert-this is NOT Christianity.

      I don’t like it anymore than you do but if I am to follow Christ and if I am to do what He commands in the gospel then I am to love my enemies and am to pray for those that want to destroy me…read Ephesians chapter 6:10-22!

      • Guest

        You are wrong. Wars have been fought on behalf of humanity since the beginning of time. I will not love Islam. I will not love satan.

        • grizzlybarrmomma

          G- Glad you popped in. LOVE is the unrefutable POWER of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. No greater love than a man would lay down his life for another, but Christ layed down His life for His enemies also. GOD IS LOVE. YOU WANT TO FIND HIM – FIND HIS LOVE. Nickle Mines, PA is one example.

      • Bingo. Best Christian response I have read to date.

      • Is this kind of like how when God says that he will provide the bread you need each day that he will feed you and put it in your mouth? Or maybe he will show you where to go and get it for yourself. This goes back to what Walid was saying about taking stuff out of context. They wrote it as a letter of encouragement. The verses you quote are about protecting your mind from Satan and resisting the sins of the flesh. And to spread the word of God not through war, but through peace.

        Don’t forget that it was Jesus who threw the money changers and vendors from the temple.

    I think it is very important, when reading the Bible, that the person reading allows it to speak for itself without adding his personal interpretation to it. So, following is what the Bible actually says:
    1 John 2:22-23
    Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
    23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. (As it says in other scripture – “no man comes to the Father but by Jesus Christ”)
    1 John 4:1-5:5
    Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
    2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
    3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. (It does not say that those who don’t believe the trinity are anti-Christ – read what is written)
    4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
    5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
    6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
    7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
    8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
    9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
    10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
    11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
    12 No man hath seen God at any time (NO MAN HAS SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME). If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
    13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
    14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
    15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. (CONVESS THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD)
    16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
    17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
    18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
    19 We love him, because he first loved us.
    20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?(NO MAN HAS SEEN GOD)
    21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
    5 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God:(BELIEVES WHAT?) and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
    2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
    3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
    4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
    5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
    Just saying… If the Bible is our reference then we should say what it says. In Revelation it says if anyone adds or takes away from the Word of God they are cursed. I res[ect what the Bible actually says.
    Have a nice day. Donna

  • I like his prediction for America!

  • Kevin D.

    That’s a mistake a lot of Christians make about their faith: They think it’s a Western religion! It’s not! It’s an Eastern religion. Understand that, look at the Bible through the eyes of Hebraic thought, and it takes on a whole new life. Jesus wasn’t a Roman or Greek pagan. He was a faithful Jew.

    If you don’t look at the Bible through the eyes of the East, you’re going to get a lot wrong.

    I shared this video on facebook and my brother claims he is a fraud: http://dawudwalid.wordpress.com/2008/04/02/walid-shoebat-ex-terrorist-exposed-as-fraud/ – I’m not a Christian, but I found his oration quite complete and articulate. My brother bought one of his books and then later found out this guy’s a fraud. I don’t know all the details, so here’s the link.

      I looked up this website and wondered if you know anything about the CAIR Foundation that sponsors that website.

    Thank you so much for posting this. I’ve recently been reading quite a bit of Whitfield and Bonhoffer, and Walid Shoebat apparently has the same message–the Christian in church-attendence only vs the Christian who lives the word of Christ. Each were prophets of their time, recognized the evil which had infiltrated the church, and had stood against it, at great personal cost. Shoebat joins them here in this battle.

    Whitfield battled Christian apathy in Great Britain including her colonies and his message of returning to a Christ-centered faith was instrumental in the birth of a new and Godly nation, the United States. The nation that would in turn put an end to the Muslim Barbary Pirates, and would go on to be the strongest champion of the Armenian Christians against the Young Turks.

    Bonhoffer recognized that same apathy in the church founded by Martin Luther–a man who also preached the same message–had opened itself up to the most horrific manifestation of evil this world had yet seen. As the German Church had removed the word of Christ from its center, it found it could so easily replace it with the words of a monster. Though a strong nationalist, Bonhoffer immediately understood his beloved Germany had brought doom and shame upon herself with Kristallnacht, having abandoned the word of God in turning against His people. (Keep in mind, that same monster found allies with Islam–“Iran” means “Aryan”.)

    And we are seeing the same happening here–“Christian” churches replacing Christ with the words of Marx, and within the Black Liberation Church, allying itself with the Nation of Islam. And while perhaps not as extreme, churches which, like the German Church in Bohnoffer’s time, thinks it can make “deals” with this deadly enemy in the name of peaceful co-existence.

    God bless Walid Shoebat.

    These two hours are filled with more info than my little brain can absorb. This deserves a repeat watch. Much information I never considered or heard of before and many questions to sort out. Well worth the time to watch. Thank you RS for making them available.

    That speech blew me away. Wow.
    I knew Islam was Satan. And it’s backed up in the bible.
    Bless you, Walid.


  • you know I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I eat sleep dream all about God. This guy is enjoyable but he is taking a stand in a area that is grey, he is right about knowing the Word of God, but this guy twists things to make his point. That is why you have so many people believe different ways. I mean go to bible gateway and see how many different translation of the bible. So if every word in the bible is so important we would all have to be in a the same translation. I am NKJV guy but if you compare you read the NIV take a famous scripture like John 3:16 NJV or the KJV ends in “whoever believes shall have everlasting life” vs the NIV which says ” whoever believes shall have eternal life” their is a huge difference between everlasting and eternal. Everlasting is the way which Satan lives, in a cycle of the everlasting life a cycle which will never be broken, versus Eternal which is the promise of lasting or existing forever, without end or beginning. So we have to watch things like that if we listen to this man who is well informed, but if you go word for word, kind of need to be in the same translation to make that comment. Enjoyed this tho thank you.

    • I understand what you are saying. I think he might have a leg up on you coming from the region in which the book was written, and therefore more easily being able to grasp the Original Hebrew text, which you hear him quote a few times. That is the real key. You can’t fully understand until you can read the ancient Hebrew and Greek. Although, from my understanding the KJV and NKJV are the closets literal translations to English, whereas the NIV, NLT, ASV, CSV, The Message, and so on are translated to be more readable. If you really want to know, then you have to study Hebrew.

    A large percentage of what has been deemed “end times” prophecy by the modern Church has already come to fruition in the past, and any attempt to re-assign it a place in OUR future is arbitrary at best, and an indictment of the self-centeredness of the Church through the ages as each generation believes itself the centerpiece of God’s revelation regarding the end of time.

    Jesus is coming. Let’s be prepared in the things that matter. No one’s getting a special prize for correctly identifying the Anti-Christ (the biggest, most obvious assumption of all).

    Stamping Out Harold Camping

    I don’t care a fig for date-setters, especially those who predict when Christ will return. The current champion is 89-year-old, headline-grabbing Harold Camping of Family Radio fame.
    Is Second Coming date-setter Harold Camping worthy of death? He already has a zero batting average after his September 1994 prediction fizzle and, according to the Bible, is a false prophet.
    Nevertheless that California shaman, who should be ashamed, claims he’s found out that Christ’s return will be on May 21, 2011 even though Matt. 24:36 says that no one knows the “day” or “hour” of it!
    A Google article (“Obama Fulfilling the Bible”) points out that “Deut. 18:20-22 in the Old Testament requires the death penalty for false prophets.”
    The same article reveals that “Christians are commanded to ask God to send severe judgment on persons who commit and support the worst forms of evil (see I Cor. 5 and note ‘taken away’).”
    Theologically radioactive Harold Camping and his ga-ga groupies (with their billboards featuring “May 21, 2011”) should worry about being “stamped out” if many persons decide to follow the I Cor. 5 command.
    The above article concludes: “False prophets in the OT were stoned to death. Today they are just stoned!”
    PS – For many years Camping was not known as a pretrib rapture teacher. But now, for $ome my$teriou$ rea$on, he seeks support from those who believe in and teach an imminent, pretrib rapture which supposedly will occur SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE the traditional SECOND COMING to earth! For a behind-the-scenes, documented look at the 181-year-old pretrib rapture belief (which was never a part of any official theology or organized church before 1830!), Google “Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty,” “Pretrib Rapture Diehards” and “Pretrib Rapture – Hidden Facts.” These are from the pen of journalist/historian Dave MacPherson a.k.a the “Pretrib Rapture Answerman” & the “Rush Limbaugh of the Rapture” – author of the bestselling book “The Rapture Plot,” an “encyclopedia” of pretrib rapture history (see Armageddon Books).
