"I'll see you guys in New York"

This was the chilling parting words of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of rebel group, Islamic State of Iran and Syria (ISIS) to US soldiers when he was released from prison in Iraq back in 2009.

Read this news item from www.dailymail.co.uk:

As he was being released from an American detention camp in Iraq in 2009, the man who will go on to head the powerful ISIS group issued a menacing warning to his former captors.

'I'll see you guys in New York,' Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly told U.S. Army reservists from Long Island who had been guarding him at Camp Bucca near the Kuwaiti border.

Army Colonel Kenneth King, who was the commanding officer of the U.S. forces' largest detention facility in Iraq in 2009 was one of the people who heard al-Baghdadi’s parting words, but he did not take them as a threat at the time.

King reasoned that the prisoner was aware that the majority of the military contingent at the camp hailed from New York, many of them NYPD officers and firefighters serving with the 306 Military Police Battalion.

The colonel took his captive's words to mean little more than a joke, not unlike 'I'll see you on the block,' he told the Daily Beast.

Al-Baghdadi's chilling words were uttered as he was being released into the hands of the Iraqi forces after spending four years at Camp Bucca, coincidentally named after an FDNY fire marshal killed in the 9/11 attacks.

Who is this man? Nothing much is known about him. He is believed to have been born in Samarra, Iraq in 1971. To know more about him read the Wikipedia.

This man has been in the news recently creating havoc in Iraq, capturing city after city in lightning speed even though he has only 800 men under him. At this moment, he is just about a few hundred kilometres north of Baghdad, the capital of Iraq. In just four days, this small band of rebels had route and attacked 9 cities, killing soldiers loyal to Iraqi regime, ransacking a bank with half a billion US dollars of money.

What is the U.S. action on this? Will it help Iraq to defend itself? So far, President Barack Obama is hesitant to send military support as of this moment. But the indication so far  is the U.S. is slow to respond to involve America in Iraq again.

The author's questions now are:

Are his parting words to Army Colonel Kenneth King were just a joke or a real prophetic warning?
Is this the man that will soon to become the antichrist?

At this point we are not yet sure but we have to keep watch of this man, study his every move if he is indeed fulfilling the prophecies in the Bible. Few of these prophecies are:

1. The antichrist will establish his throne in New York. Please read New York City: The Throne of the Antichrist, also The Antichrist and the Number "666".

2. The antichrist shall start small but will grow in power. There will be no letup until America (the Beautiful Land) is conquered.

Out of one of them came another horn, which started small but grew in power to the south and to the east and toward the Beautiful Land. (Dan 8:9)

Take note that this man started very small too and now he has already taken so many cities and recruited followers as he goes.

3. The antichrist shall come from Nineveh. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is believed to have been born in Samarra, Iraq in 1971. The prophecy below may not indicate the birthplace but probably from where the antichrist started his campaign to gain the world, or, the seat of his power. The first city to fall (June 10) was the second largest city of Iraq which is Mosul. This is the same city of Nineveh of the ancient times. Mosul is also the capital city of the province of the modern day Nineveh.

From you, [O Nineveh,] has one come forth who plots evil against the LORD and devises wicked plans. (Nah 1:11).

4. America can do nothing. If the US is not able to stop him, he will indeed come and reign in New York.

There is nothing Egypt can do — head or tail, palm branch or reed. (Isa 19:15)

5. America shall lose the opportunity. If Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is indeed the coming antichrist, this is the time for the U.S. to act and fast, to remove him from power. But can we avert prophecies? Read The Real Roots of America to understand the America is the modern day Egypt. The Bible calls all her rulers or presidents, pharaoh.

There they will exclaim, ‘Pharaoh king of Egypt is only a loud noise; he has missed his opportunity.’ (Jer 46:17)

These are the few conditions or indications if Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is indeed destined to become the antichrist. His chilling words or warning to see those soldiers in New York may or may not come true. But remember the prophecies and it will guide us to the right path, guide our decisions and affirm our faith in God.
