Is ISIS found in the Bible? No, certainly not directly and possibly not even indirectly. The most relatable reference is found in the Book of Daniel. ISIS’s nickname [what they call it in the Middle East] is DAESH which means “to crush underfoot” in Arabic. Chrsitians have marveled at this definition and its similarity to a Bible verse which describes Daniel’s fourth terrifying Beast (which will be the Empire of the Antichrist):
It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet. (Dan. 7: 7)
This is far from definative proof, but it is very, very interesting coincidence; if it is a coincidence.
An additional interesting alignment of ISIS with prophecy involves the location of the Caliphate in northern Iraq and eastern Sryia. This region is the historic location of the ancient empire of Nimrod and the empire of Assyria. Mosul is close to the historic Assyrian capital of Ninevah, and from the map below you can see this area is still called Nineveh province.”
“…Some people believe that only the Revived Ottoman Empire will be the Beast empire. I don’t agree. I believe it is simply an “Islamic Calipate” and the Beast first arose with Mohammed 1400 years ago. If that is true, the Beast is already loose again upon the earth. Now when I say Beast, I referring to the demonic power or ARCHON behind the Caliphate. The Beast has 3 aspects: a demonic power, a Kingdom and a man. Certainly the beheadings, rape, and torture seen under ISIS are demonic in a sense not seen for generations, and may be indicative of powerful demonic control of this Caliphate.
This does not mean that Abu Bakr al-Bagdadi is the “Beast” or Antichrist or that ISIS is the final form of that Beast. They possibly could be, but I doubt it very much. In my opinion, it is simply the demonic aspect of the Beast that is now on the earth, not all three aspects (demon, man and kingdom). But if the prophecy of Rev. 13: 3 has already been fulfilled in this one way, this is a significant prophetic development. The fact that ISIS’s nickname DAESH is linked to Daniel’s Fourth Terrifying Beast as mentioned above only adds credence to this in my mind…”

In many other Bible verses we are told that the Antichrist will be from Babylon. Ancient Babylon, or the future end times’ “Mystery Babylon” which I believe is America? Will the Antichrist literally be from the region of Assyria? Or is calling him Assyrian merely a reference to his warlike nature, much like calling someone a “Grammar Nazi” doesn’t really mean they are a German fascist? Time will tell, perhaps very soon.
