How to Reach Muslims-Part Six
Jesus Returns to Earth
According to what the Bible describes about Jesus Return to Earth as the Messiah and what the Muslims believe is totally different. There is no similarity whatsoever. There is nothing in Scrioture whatsoever that matches up to what Muslims believe about Jesus Return on earth.
According to the sacred texts of Islam, Jesus is not seen as a savior. When Jesus returns, it will not be as the Messiah of the Jewish people and the Gentiles. Nor will Jesus’ purpose be to save and deliver his faithful followers from the ongoing persecution of the Antichrist. Instead Jesus will come back as a radical Muslim. Jesus is called Isa (or Eesa) al-Maseeh (the Messiah). Other common titles for Jesus are Hadrat Isa (Honorable Jesus), Isa bin Maryam (Jesus son of Mary) or Nabi Isa (Prophet Jesus).
Jesus is not seen as the redeemer. The redeemer in the eyes of Islam is one who is called the Mahdi. Jesus role is to assist the Mahdi. Jesus is inferior to the Mahdi, thus he will totally submit to the Mahdi. Jesus will make a pilgrimage to Mecca.
