What the
REFORMERS
Taught onBy Dr. Peter Hammond
What the
REFORMERS
Taught onBy Dr. Peter Hammond
In expounding Daniel 9, Martin Luther noted that
among others, the prophet Daniel was talking
about the Muslim Turks, who at that time were
invading Europe:
“In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become
completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of
intrigue will arise. He will become very strong, but not by
his own power. He will cause astounding devastation
He will cause deceit
to prosper and he
will consider
himself superior.
When they feel
secure, he will
destroy many and
take his stand
against the Prince
of princes. Yet he
will be destroyed,
but not by human
power.”
Daniel 9: 23 – 25
–Luther
wrote that
the ”two
regimes,
that of the
Pope and
that of the
Turk, are …
antichrist.”
John Calvin in a
sermon on
Deut 18:15
maintained that
Muhammad
was one of
“the two
horns of
antichrist.”
– In his commentaries on Daniel (7: 7 – 18),
Calvin put forward the theory that the
Muslim Turks were the little horn that
sprang up from the beast.
– As the Turks had conquered much of the
old Roman Empire, much of the prophecies
concerning Rome could apply to the
Muslim world. Islam was one of the two
legs of the later Roman Empire described in
Daniel 2.
Luther noted
that Christ
warned about
false prophets
coming from
the desert
(Matthew 24: 24
– 26) and this
certainly
included
Muhammad.
Commenting on 2 Thessalonians 2: 3 – 12, Calvin
wrote that … “the sect of Mohammad was like a
raging overflow, which in its violence tore away
about half of the church.”
In his commentary on 1 John 2: 18 – 23,
Calvin states that the Turks “have a mere
idol in place of God.”
Luther wrote: “Who is the liar ? It is the man who
denies that Jesus is the Christ.
Such a man is the antichrist – he denies the Father
and the Son.” 1 John 2: 22, that the
Mohammadans deny both the Fatherhood of God
and the Deity of Christ – hence they are liars.
They testify against the truth of God’s Word.
On 1 John 4: 3 – 6:
“but every spirit that
does not acknowledge
Jesus, is not from
God. This is the
spirit of the
antichrist … this is
how we recognise the
spirit of truth and the
spirit of falsehood”,
Calvin noted that
“Mohammad too
asserts that he has
drawn his dreams only
from Heaven … False
spirits claim the Name
of God.”
Luther observed that the Muslim Turks
want “to eradicate the Christians.”
The 1637 Calvinist
Dordt Bible in
Dutch,
comments on
Revelation 16:12
that the Muslim
nations of the
East would still
unite with one
another in a
Pan-Islamic
Jihad against
the West.
The 1643 Westminster Assembly’s “Larger
Catechism” calls on Christians to ... “pray that the
kingdom of sin and Satan may be destroyed, that
the Gospel propagated throughout the world …”
It’s “Directory for the Public Worship of God” instructs
congregations to “pray for the propagation of the
Gospel and Kingdom of Christ to all nations, for the
conversion of the Jews, the fullness of the
gentiles, the fall of antichrist, and the deliverance
of the distressed Churches abroad from the
tyranny of the antiChristian faction, and from the
cruel oppression and blasphemies of the Turk.”
Commenting on Rev. 9: 1 – 11, the Dutch Dordt
Bible of 1637 suggests that Muhammad is
“Apollyon” (which is Greek for the Hebrew word
“Abaddon” which means destroyer) and the army of
locusts and scorpions are the Arab and Saracen
armies which wage Jihad in Muhammad’s name.
Jonathan
Edwards, the
first President of
Princeton
University, wrote
in his
“A History of the
Work of
Redemption.”
“The two great works of the devil which he … wrought
against the Kingdom of Christ are … his
Anti-Christian (Romish or Papal) and Mahometan
(Muslim or Islamic) kingdoms … which have been,
and still are, two kingdoms of great extent and
strength.
Both together swallow … up the Ancient Roman
Empire; the (Papal) kingdom of Antichrist swallowing
up the Western Empire, and Satan’s Mahometan
kingdom the Eastern Empire …
In the Book of Revelation (chapters 16 – 20) … it is in
the destruction of these that the glorious victory of
Christ at the introduction of the glorious times of the
Church, will mainly consist…”
In a sermon on 2 Timothy 1:3, Calvin explained: “The
Turks at this day, can allege and say for themselves:
‘We serve God from our ancestors!’ … It is a good
while ago since Mahomet gave them the cup of his
devilish dreams to drink, and they got drunk with them.
It is about a thousand years since those cursed
hellhounds were made drunk with their follies …
Let us be wise and discreet! … For otherwise, we
shall be like the Turks and Heathen!”
(Sermons on Timothy and Titus – John Calvin).
Calvin pointed out that the reign of antichrist
will be destroyed by the Word of God
(2 Thessalonians 2:8).
“Paul does not think that Christ will accomplish
this in a single moment … Christ will scatter the
darkness in which antichrist will reign,
by the rays which He will emit before His coming
– just as the sun, before becoming visible to us,
chases away the darkness of the night with its
bright light.
“This victory of the Word will therefore be seen in the
World. For ‘the Breath (or Spirit) of His Mouth’ means
simply His Word … as in Isaiah 11:4, the passage to
which Paul appears to be alluding …
(Commentary on Second Thessalonians - John Calvin).
It is a notable commendation of true and sound doctrine
that it is represented as being sufficient to put an end
to all ungodliness, and as destined at all times to be
victorious over all devices of Satan. It is also a
commendation when … a little further on … the
preaching of this doctrine, is referred to as Christ’s
‘coming’ to us.”
(Commentary on Second Thessalonians - John Calvin).
“The Kingdoms of the world have become the
Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and
He shall reign for ever and ever.” Revelation 11:15
“All nations will come and worship
before You …” Revelation 15:4
“The desert tribes will bow before Him and
His enemies will lick the dust ... All kings
will bow down to Him and all nations will
serve Him.”
Psalm 72: 9-11
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever
present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1
1:A mighty fortress is our God,
a bulwark never failing;
Our helper He amid the flood,
of mortal ills prevailing.
For still our ancient foe,
doth seek to work us woe;
his craft and pow’r are great,
and armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.
A Mighty Fortress is our God
2: Did we in our own strength confide;
our striving would be losing;
Were not the right man on our side,
the man of God’s own choosing.
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He,
Lord Sabaoth His Name,
from age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.
3: And though this world with devils filled,
should threaten to undo us,
we will not fear, for God hath willed,
His truth to triumph through us.
The prince of darkness grim,
we tremble not for him;
his rage we can endure,
for lo! his doom is sure;
One little word shall fell him.
4:That Word above all earthly pow’rs,
no thanks to them abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours,
through Him who with us sideth.
Let goods and kindred go,
this mortal life also;
The body they may kill;
God’s truth abideth still;
His Kingdom is forever.

  • 4. What the REFORMERS Taught onBy Dr. Peter Hammond
  • 5. In expounding Daniel 9, Martin Luther noted that among others, the prophet Daniel was talking about the Muslim Turks, who at that time were invading Europe:
  • 6. “In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of intrigue will arise. He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation
  • 7. He will cause deceit to prosper and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.” Daniel 9: 23 – 25
  • 8. –Luther wrote that the ”two regimes, that of the Pope and that of the Turk, are … antichrist.”
  • 9. John Calvin in a sermon on Deut 18:15 maintained that Muhammad was one of “the two horns of antichrist.”
  • 10. – In his commentaries on Daniel (7: 7 – 18), Calvin put forward the theory that the Muslim Turks were the little horn that sprang up from the beast.
  • 11. – As the Turks had conquered much of the old Roman Empire, much of the prophecies concerning Rome could apply to the Muslim world. Islam was one of the two legs of the later Roman Empire described in Daniel 2.
  • 12. Luther noted that Christ warned about false prophets coming from the desert (Matthew 24: 24 – 26) and this certainly included Muhammad.
  • 13. Commenting on 2 Thessalonians 2: 3 – 12, Calvin wrote that … “the sect of Mohammad was like a raging overflow, which in its violence tore away about half of the church.”
  • 14. In his commentary on 1 John 2: 18 – 23, Calvin states that the Turks “have a mere idol in place of God.”
  • 15. Luther wrote: “Who is the liar ? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ.
  • 16. Such a man is the antichrist – he denies the Father and the Son.” 1 John 2: 22, that the Mohammadans deny both the Fatherhood of God and the Deity of Christ – hence they are liars. They testify against the truth of God’s Word.
  • 17. On 1 John 4: 3 – 6: “but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus, is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist … this is how we recognise the spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood”, Calvin noted that “Mohammad too asserts that he has drawn his dreams only from Heaven … False spirits claim the Name of God.”
  • 18. Luther observed that the Muslim Turks want “to eradicate the Christians.”
  • 19. The 1637 Calvinist Dordt Bible in Dutch, comments on Revelation 16:12 that the Muslim nations of the East would still unite with one another in a Pan-Islamic Jihad against the West.
  • 20. The 1643 Westminster Assembly’s “Larger Catechism” calls on Christians to ... “pray that the kingdom of sin and Satan may be destroyed, that the Gospel propagated throughout the world …”
  • 21. It’s “Directory for the Public Worship of God” instructs congregations to “pray for the propagation of the Gospel and Kingdom of Christ to all nations, for the conversion of the Jews, the fullness of the gentiles, the fall of antichrist, and the deliverance of the distressed Churches abroad from the tyranny of the antiChristian faction, and from the cruel oppression and blasphemies of the Turk.”
  • 22. Commenting on Rev. 9: 1 – 11, the Dutch Dordt Bible of 1637 suggests that Muhammad is “Apollyon” (which is Greek for the Hebrew word “Abaddon” which means destroyer) and the army of locusts and scorpions are the Arab and Saracen armies which wage Jihad in Muhammad’s name.
  • 23. Jonathan Edwards, the first President of Princeton University, wrote in his “A History of the Work of Redemption.”
  • 24. “The two great works of the devil which he … wrought against the Kingdom of Christ are … his Anti-Christian (Romish or Papal) and Mahometan (Muslim or Islamic) kingdoms … which have been, and still are, two kingdoms of great extent and strength.
  • 25. Both together swallow … up the Ancient Roman Empire; the (Papal) kingdom of Antichrist swallowing up the Western Empire, and Satan’s Mahometan kingdom the Eastern Empire …
  • 26. In the Book of Revelation (chapters 16 – 20) … it is in the destruction of these that the glorious victory of Christ at the introduction of the glorious times of the Church, will mainly consist…”
  • 27. In a sermon on 2 Timothy 1:3, Calvin explained: “The Turks at this day, can allege and say for themselves: ‘We serve God from our ancestors!’ … It is a good while ago since Mahomet gave them the cup of his devilish dreams to drink, and they got drunk with them.
  • 28. It is about a thousand years since those cursed hellhounds were made drunk with their follies … Let us be wise and discreet! … For otherwise, we shall be like the Turks and Heathen!” (Sermons on Timothy and Titus – John Calvin).
  • 29. Calvin pointed out that the reign of antichrist will be destroyed by the Word of God (2 Thessalonians 2:8).
  • 30. “Paul does not think that Christ will accomplish this in a single moment … Christ will scatter the darkness in which antichrist will reign, by the rays which He will emit before His coming – just as the sun, before becoming visible to us, chases away the darkness of the night with its bright light.
  • 31. “This victory of the Word will therefore be seen in the World. For ‘the Breath (or Spirit) of His Mouth’ means simply His Word … as in Isaiah 11:4, the passage to which Paul appears to be alluding … (Commentary on Second Thessalonians - John Calvin).
  • 32. It is a notable commendation of true and sound doctrine that it is represented as being sufficient to put an end to all ungodliness, and as destined at all times to be victorious over all devices of Satan. It is also a commendation when … a little further on … the preaching of this doctrine, is referred to as Christ’s ‘coming’ to us.” (Commentary on Second Thessalonians - John Calvin).
  • 33. “The Kingdoms of the world have become the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign for ever and ever.” Revelation 11:15
  • 34. “All nations will come and worship before You …” Revelation 15:4
  • 35. “The desert tribes will bow before Him and His enemies will lick the dust ... All kings will bow down to Him and all nations will serve Him.” Psalm 72: 9-11
  • 36.
  • 37. “God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1 1:A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing; Our helper He amid the flood, of mortal ills prevailing. For still our ancient foe, doth seek to work us woe; his craft and pow’r are great, and armed with cruel hate, On earth is not his equal. A Mighty Fortress is our God
  • 38. 2: Did we in our own strength confide; our striving would be losing; Were not the right man on our side, the man of God’s own choosing. Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He, Lord Sabaoth His Name, from age to age the same, And He must win the battle.
  • 39. 3: And though this world with devils filled, should threaten to undo us, we will not fear, for God hath willed, His truth to triumph through us. The prince of darkness grim, we tremble not for him; his rage we can endure, for lo! his doom is sure; One little word shall fell him.
  • 40. 4:That Word above all earthly pow’rs, no thanks to them abideth; The Spirit and the gifts are ours, through Him who with us sideth. Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also; The body they may kill; God’s truth abideth still; His Kingdom is forever.
