Baghdadi, the Caliph (Muslim ‘messiah-like’ figure) of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) ruled in this self-proclaimed capacity from April 7, 2013 – October 26, 2019.
He was one of the most feared and wicked persons ever to live.
Baghdadi ended his Caliphate (self-proclaimed ruler of the Muslim world) when he was slain by the Trump-led militia.
The US military operation that targeted ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi got underway on the ground in northwest Syria at 5:01 p.m. ET Saturday, according to a senior US defense official.
Baghdadi’s death was communicated by the special operations forces when they declared “jackpot” at 7:15 p.m. ET, the senior US defense official said. President Trump joined the national security team in the situation room as the operation got underway. (CNN)
Foreshadow of Antichrist: Interesting facts
- Baghdadi ruled as Caliph exactly 6.5 years to the day on the Jewish calendar. (Nisan 27th, 2013, to Tishri 27th, 2019.)
This is interesting because the final antichrist will rule exactly seven years (or perhaps half-that?)
The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. (Rev. 13:5) (“42” x 30 = 1260 days, that is 3.5 years.)
ISIS: “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant”
Ruler of Babylon:
Baghdadi claimed to be the ruler of Babylon (ancient Iraq). The Book of Revelation says the same thing.
“The name written on her forehead was a mystery:
Babylon the great
the mother of prostitutes
and of the abominations of the earth.
6 I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus.”(Rev. 17:5-6)
Ironically, “ISIS” was also the name of the Egyptian goddess that fits the same description: “She had a name written on her forehead, Mystery Babylon”.
Isis of Baghdadi also wore a bandanna with words of blaspheme over their foreheads.
This little antichrist died pointing to Turkey
Many students of Bible prophecy believe that a caliphate centered in Turkey is destined to be the final antichrist.
It happens that Baghdadi was slain just a few miles from the border of Turkey. (Also see the post about Turkey and the Kurds.)
The Book of Revelation declares that the final antichrist will be “healed of a deadly wound”, (Rev. 13).
Perhaps another caliphate, this time from Turkey, is hinted at by Baghdadi’s close proximity to Turkey when he died?
Will another caliphate replace Baghdadi, but this time centered in Turkey instead of Babylon (Iraq)?
“The Beast and the False prophet”
The Book of Revelation refers to the Antichrist and his spokesmen being captured at the same time, then thrown alive into the Lake of Fire, (Rev. 19:20). It happens that Baghdadi’s spokesmen (“false prophet”) were slain just hours after Baghdadi.
Trump did not specify who he was referring to, but the United States on Monday confirmed the killing of Abu al-Hassan al-Muhajir, Islamic State spokesman and a high-ranking figure within the jihadi group.
A senior State Department official said on Monday that al-Muhajir was killed in a separate operation. The Syrian Kurdish YPG militia said on Sunday that al-Muhajir was killed in a joint raid between Kurdish-led and U.S. forces in northern Syria. (Global News)
Just confirmed that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s number one replacement has been terminated by American troops. Most likely would have taken the top spot – Now he is also Dead!

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. (Rev. 19:20)
