What would cause Israel, and her Arab neighbors to actually make peace? Armageddon News explains a scenario, in a Facebook post, based on this article from Breaking Israel News. In the following re-post Armageddon News explains correlations, and contradictions between Bible prophecy, Rabbinic prophecy, and Islamic prophecy:
““We have received a direct teaching, passed down from one to another, from the Gaon of Vilna, that when Russia goes and conquers Istanbul, the capital of Turkey, it is time to quickly put on your Shabbat clothes and expect the Messiah,” he said.”
NOTE: At the shrine where Mohammed’s memorabilia is kept, the golden casket contains a green flag or banner, and other items including his green-sheathed sword.
In a news article in the Jerusalem Post dated August 19, 2015, ISIS urged its followers to conquer Istanbul.
It is said that if the green banner of Mohammed is ever raised above the Mosque in Istanbul, it is a sign to the entire Muslim world that it is time to go to war against Christians throughout the world.
The raising of the green standard is a call which none may disobey, without sacrificing, as the Koran calls it, all hopes of Paradise.
It is a summons to an anti-Christian crusade, a challenge of every believer in the Prophet to arms; a war-signal in fact, which, like the fiery cross of Scotland, would flash its dread command through the domain of Islam.
Mohammed himself predicted that one day when his followers should number a hundred million – which they do now – with twenty million more added to it, his flag should fly against the advancing power of the northern races; and the Koran, or Mohammedan Bible, says that when its silken folds are flung forth ‘the earth will shake, the mountains melt into dust, the seas blaze up in fire, and the children’s hair grow white with anguish.'”

In a September 2006 article, WorldNetDaily.com reported an influential Islamic preacher in Gaza, Sheik Abu Saqer declared ‘the day will come when the GREEN FLAG OF MUHAMMED will be raised upon the Vatican and all around the world.’
This is in DIRECT CONFLICT with the TRUE ENSIGN, the flag of God, Jesus Christ. Six times, Isaiah called Messiah an ensign (a banner or flag). God ‘will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and …they shall come with speed swiftly,’ (5:26). Jesus Christ is the true flag of God, and when He returns, His presence will be infinitely more significant than the flag of Mohammed. The ‘diaspora’ (dispersed Jews) began immigrating to Israel around 1948. Jesus’ return will signal worldwide ‘aliyah,’ the second and final immigration! At that time, Jesus will establish His global kingdom on earth, ruling from Jerusalem, Israel. All the scriptures attest to it.” – Source: Ken Raggio, Bible Study Teacher
Thus, the unbelieving rabbis who are expecting a messiah will recognize the Antichrist as him.
– 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
