The Impersonation of Angel Gabriel…

I was reading that Muslims believe that the Angel Gabriel spoke to Mohammed and over time revealed to him the scriptures of the Quran.  I was shocked by this, as how could the angel who declared to Mary that she would bear the Son of God also perpetuate the lies that would be the foundation of Islam.  Then I found what might be to us the single most important scriptural verse for illuminating how devious Satan can be.

Speaking of false prophets and their motivation, 2Cor 11:14 “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”   Can we take this far enough to say that he disguised himself not just as an angel of light, but as the angel of light called Gabriel?  I would say yes.  For what other explanation could there be?

I think it is at least something as believers we should wrestle with.  There has to be an explanation and the explanation should be found in scripture, as God would not allow us to be fooled.  Continue to pray for our Muslim neighbors, they need Jesus now more than ever.

For furhter thought along these lines: Islam
