Christ/anti-Christ/Gog-Magog parallels in hinduism

The “Kalki Purana” happens to be a prophetic book in the Hindu tradition. I happened upon some prophecy related websites that claimed there are certain similarities between the prophecies of the “Kalki Purana” and the Bible, specifically the Book of Revelation. I haven’t read the entire text of the “Kalki Purana” to double check and cross verify the claims, but here is a brief summary of what I have learned so far. Please note that I am not endorsing the “Kalki Purana” but I felt it would be worthwhile to examine the parallels between it and the Bible. I gently advice the reader to do their own research on this matter. 

1. Biblical Christ / Kalki? 
Hinduism has its version of an end times hero called “Kalki”. Like the saviour on a white horse described in the Book of Revelations (who Christians say is Jesus), Kalki is also described as riding a white horse. 

I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he judges and makes war. – Revelation 19:11 

Interestingly Kalki is often depicted as riding a white horse. 


Additionally, both the bible and the hindu records state that the Christ/Kalki will return at a time when the world has entered a state of great mortal degeneracy. 

2. Biblical Gog and Magog / “Kok and Bikok”? 
Lord Kalki, along with his soldiers armed with various types of weapons engaged in war with Kok and Bikok .These two brothers are supreme demons, great fanatics and adept in the art of war. These brothers are intimately connected, powerful, hard to defeat and are even feared by the Gods. (Kalki Purana, III, Verses 43 & 44)  

“Kok and Vikok” are most certainly cognates of “Gog and Magog”, described as a mighty army in the Bible. 

3. Biblical Anti-Christ/beast / “Koli”?
The Bible speaks of an evil one, the anti-christ who gathers his allies to wage war agaisnt the rider on the horse 

Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army. – Revelation 19:19

Hindu prophecies also contain an anti-christ type character called “Koli” who gathers his allies to make war against Kalki. 

Hearing that Kalki has come for battle, the angry Koli, along with his allies, sons and grandsons came riding on a chariot out of the city of Bishasan. On seeing Koli, Kalki ordered his followers to engage in battle with him. (Kalki Purana, III, Verses 32, 33, 35, 36)  

4. Biblical Babylon / “Bishasan”?
The book of Revelation highlights a certain city called “Babylon” that is understood to be the “capital city” of the anti-Christ. That city (symbolized as a prostitute) is said to be destroyed by fire as we read in Revelation 18 :

Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. – Revelation 18:8 

And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! – Revelation 18:18

In Hindu prophecy, the anti-christ also has a capital city called “Bishasan”, which is also destroyed by fire: 

Soon they entered the city of Bishasan, the capital of Koli, and burnt down the city using fiery missile. Alongwith the city, Koli too was burnt and his sons and relatives were destroyed. (Kalki Purana, III, Verses 9 & 10) 

Very interesting, to say the least.

I remember looking into the Koka Vikoka myth in Hindu scripture about two years ago.

What got me interested in the Vedic scripts is the fact that we have an Aryan invasion myth, as well as the world larges natural barrier - the Himalaya mountains... for me this was a possible route of interest in the study of Surah al Kahf ayahs 83-101.
