STUDY ON THE ANTICHRIST PROPHECY MEANING AND THE ANTICHRIST PROPHECY
INTERPRETATION WITH THE ANTICHRIST PROPHECY MESSAGE
Welcome back! Happy to
have you here to share another Old Testament Bible story. When we left
off at the end of Chapter 10, the Angel was telling Daniel prophecy of
the End Times. He began by saying that he
would return to fight with the prince of Persia, and then the prince of
Greece will come.
back up for just a minute so that you fully understand this. As we
learned in Chapter 8, this is sort of a two-fold prophecy of which part
has already happened, and will, in a manner of speaking, repeat itself
again in the End Times. We know that during the captivity, Babylon was
in power, then Persia took over. Then Greece took over Persia.
Angel then told Daniel that in the first year of Darius, he supported
and strengthened him.
Very interesting to know that God sends Angels to help leaders.
the Angel said that there will still be three kings in Persia and the
fourth will be much richer than all of them, and because of his riches,
he will stir up all against the kingdom of Greece. Then a mighty king
from Greece will take over.
you may have recognized, this is Alexander the Great. From this point,
the Angel goes into details of the dividing of the kingdoms and who
defeats whom, all the way through Verse 19.
we are introduced to Antiochus Epiphanes, the most evil ruler Israel has
ever encountered. He did so much damage in fact, that when he was
finally conquered, the Israelites made an 8-day celebration that is
still carried out to this day. It is called Hanukkah.
And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom
they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall
come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
As you read the prophecy in this chapter regarding Antiochus Epiphanes,
starting at Verse 21 and ending at Verse 45, you will find a startling
fact. This man died in the history books and yet the Bible has the story
continue on after. History has this man dying at this point in this
the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt
himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak
marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper
till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is
determined shall be done.
Antiochus is fighting against God and the story is suddenly in OUR
future, as if he died and comes back to life or something.
ANTICHRIST PROPHECY LESSON WITH THE ANTICHRIST PROPHECY EXPLANATION
AND THE ANTICHRIST PROPHECY SUMMARY
Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the
desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify
himself above all.
is because he does come back to life, just as predicted in John's vision
The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and
shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition:
and they that dwell on the Earth shall wonder, whose names
were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of
the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not,
and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven
heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And
there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the
other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a
short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is
the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
was a ruler of Greece and is one of the five past kings, as is
Antichrist. Antiochus also reigned terror on Israel for three and a half
years, as will Antichrist, Antiochus set up an abomination of desolation
in the Temple, as will Antichrist ... Both are called little horns in
the Bible. Even his name Antiochus ... How many people have ANTI
as the first four letters of their name or title? Ladies and gentlemen
... Antiochus IS Antichrist ...
Let's take a look at
that chart of dreams and visions once again, and add the different kings
(empires) that they represent:
Part strong/Part broken
Shall not cleave
Yet to be
(will be one of the above)
... Let's take a look at what we have so far ... It is clear according
to both dreams that there are 4 empires and then Antichrists Empire. The 4 empires are
Medo Persia, Greece and Rome.
was the kingdom that was ruling during the time the Revelation vision
the king that WAS ...
And there are seven
kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet
come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And
the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is
of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
THE ANTICHRIST PROPHECY INFORMATION WITH THE ANTICHRIST
PROPHECY MEANING AND THE ANTICHRIST PROPHECY DISCUSSION
we know from the Bible,
the other two past empires that tormented Israel before
Medo Persia, Greece and Rome. This
means that the 5 past empires, BEFORE ROME, in order of their appearance
on the timeline of life are ... Egypt,
Assyria, Babylon, Medo Persia, and Greece. This
means that Antichrist WAS a ruler from one of these 5.
of these countries have new names now. The 5 countries names are now ...
Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran and Greece.
may like to research in encyclopedias and history books about these times
in history, but remember, endeavoring to match these events and peoples and
kingdoms with those of today in order to try and figure out EXACTLY who
the players in the End Times will be, is very difficult because even
though certain people
in ancient times lived in one place, today it is most likely named something
completely different. Not only that, but the entire western hemisphere
hadn't even been discovered yet, so for example, to equate the ram pushing westward,
northward, and southward in ancient times with the territory known today
as westward, northward, and southward, couldn't be an accurate
Angel continues, telling Daniel of all the trickery that Antichrist will be
wielding during the End Times, and how so very many will be deceived by him. He
will be relentless to win as many souls away from God as he possibly can, and
will do anything in his power to accomplish his determination.
Hurry on back, and we'll
take a look at the last chapter of Daniel, to find out
what else was revealed to Daniel in this vision.
