Isaiah saw a vision of two riders.
“And he saw a chariot [with] a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, [and] a chariot of camels ..” (Isaiah 21:7)
Who was the rider upon the ass? Every Sunday school student will tell us that this was a prophecy of Jesus (peace be upon him), as stated in John:
“And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,” (John 12:14)
but who is the promised prophet who would ride the camel? If it is not Muhammad (peace be upon him) then this prophecy has yet to be fulfilled. Let us read on…
“And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, [with] a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.” (Isaiah 21:9)
Babylon did indeed fall before Islam and the Islamic nation under the guidance of Muhammad (peace be upon him) did indeed succeed in eradicating the worship of idols from Babylon replacing it with the worship of God alone. In fact, the Muslims were the only believers in the God of Isaiah to ever succeed in fulfilling this prophesy.
“The burden upon Arabia …” (Isaiah 21:13)
What does the word “burden” mean? Let us ask the Scofield Study Bible:
“…an oracle is a word sometimes used in the prophetical writings to indicate a divine message of judgment” (Scofield Study Bible New King James Version, note 1, p. 792)
