 SIGNS OF THE ANTICHRIST

Many have heard of the Antichrist but who is to be the antichrist and what will be the antichrist signs?

This particular name of antichrist has the ability to strike curiosity, wonder and even fear into the minds and hearts of those who have heard of him, because of his hatred for Christians and his evil plans for the future, for those of you who have not heard about antichrist.

This individual, known as Antichrist in the Bible, will be a sinister world leader that shows up during the End Times. He reigns terror for three and one half years. He will be the leader of a ten unit empire. He will be powerful and is even able to perform miracles. His powers will come from satan. He and his sidekick, the false prophet, will deceive the world. These two will cause everyone in the world to take a mark in their right hand or in their head. Nobody can buy or sell anything without this mark. They will also create an image and all must worship it ... Or die. The number one mission of Antichrist is to get the entire world to worship him as their lord. If they choose not to, they will be killed. 

It will truly be HELL on earth.

Let us look into finding out more about Antichrist and who he will be, by finding out who he was before he died, and was brought back from the dead. Yes, you read the words correctly ... He was a past evil king which will be resurrected from the dead and reign terror for three and a half years.

SIGNS OF THE ANTICHRIST STUDY WITH SIGNS OF THE ANTICHRIST PROPHECY AND SIGNS OF THE ANTICHRIST MESSAGE

The Bible gives us all the clues to find out all we need to know, as to be prepared for his arrival AND TO KNOW WHO THE ANTICHRIST IS, HIS ACTIONS, WHAT HIS INTENT IS AND WHAT REGIONS HE WILL CONTROL.

Let's start with the book of Revelation.

The book of Revelation was written by John who received it from Jesus.

Revelation 1:9
I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the Kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ ...

John was imprisoned on Patmos Island. This was about 90 AD.

So, all the references that John makes, are based upon that year being the starting point.

In the book of Revelation, Chapter 17 ...
John shares with us some information on where the Antichrist came from ... His origins.

Revelation 17:8
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.

The beast (Antichrist) was alive and is not alive and yet will be.

Revelation 17:10
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.

7 kings ... 5 have fallen and 1 is and that 1 is yet to be.

Revelation 17:11
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

Antichrist will be the 8th king and yet is ONE of the 7 past kings.

But which seven kings?

Let's do a lil math ... This means that as of 90 AD, Antichrist had already been alive. He died and will be brought back from the dead. It also means Antichrist was one of the 5 evil kings prior to 90 AD.

But, which one?

Before we continue on our quest ...
You may be saying to yourself ... "Let me get this straight. Antichrist was dead and will come alive again?"

The answer is YES.
 
The Bible makes it very clear. How can we doubt the possibility? With the advancement in DNA science and the cloning of animals and even the evidence of the cloning people. Who can doubt the Biblical claim?

Our journey to find the truth of this matter, will take us back and forth through time and we will use the Bible to find the facts. It all began back around 587 BC. when a king of Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar) had a nightmare.

He dreamed of a great statue and his dream was interpreted by a prophet of God, named Daniel.

Daniel 2:32
This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass.

Daniel is answering king Nebuchadnezzar's strange request for someone to tell him what a dream, that the king had, was and what it meant.

Daniel told king Nebuchadnezzar that the dream the king had was of a great statue with a gold head, chest and arms of silver, belly and thighs of brass, legs of iron and feet of iron and clay. Then, a stone cut without hands would hit the feet of the statue and all the parts were destroyed together.

Daniel 2:35
Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Wow ... What a dream.

What does it mean?  

Daniel went further and interpreted the dream for the king.

Daniel 2:36-45
This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of Heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

He says that Nebuchadnezzar's empire Babylon was the gold head in the dream. That after him another empire would arise, which was Medo Persia which is the silver part of the statue and after that the next empire which would become Greece which is the brass would conquer and after that the 4th empire would become Rome which was the iron.

In other words ... Daniel, using the dream, projected the upcoming empires (up to this point).

Daniel 2:38-40
And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

(Note: These are the countries that DID become the major power, one after another just as Daniel predicted.)

Daniel then said that the last empire, which was made of iron and clay would be a divided Kingdom and would be part strong and part broken. They shall not cleave to one another.  In the days of this empire, God will destroy it and set up an everlasting Kingdom.

Daniel 2:41-45
And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

  Now, we KNOW that God has not destroyed this part iron and part clay kingdom as of yet, because God has not set up His everlasting Kingdom ... YET. So, this part iron and clay, 10 unit (10 toes) empire, is in our future and you will find out ... That it is Antichrist's empire.

Again, in Daniel, Chapter 7 ... Daniel himself had a dream, which was of 4 beasts ... A lion, bear, leopard and an iron toothed beast.

Daniel 7:1-7
In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters. Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

Antichrist's empire is compared to the same beasts by John in the book of Revelation.

Revelation 13:2
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Remember this beast in Daniel's dream had 10 horns.

Daniel 7:7
After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

Among the 10 horns came up another smaller horn and it plucked up 3 of the 10 horns. This little horn had eyes like a man and spoke great things.

Daniel 7:8
I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

 You know, we do NOT have to guess at what these symbols stood for.
Daniel's dream was interpreted for us.

Daniel 7:16-18
I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things. These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

The 4 beasts are 4 kings which shall arise.
Daniel asked about the 4th beast with iron teeth, brass claws and 10 horns with the smaller horn that came up.

Daniel 7:19-22
Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

Did you catch that?

The small horn will MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS and he will prevail ...

The book of Revelation reveals the same TRUTH when speaking of Antichrist:

Revelation 13:7
And it was given unto him (Antichrist) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

NOTE: Remember that we also read that the saints will win in the end and God's kingdom would be set up.

Antichrist's kingdom has 10 parts as well, as we see:

Revelation 13:1
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

 

Revelation 17:7-13
And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 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. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

The 10 horns are 10 kings that will arise out of this kingdom and the small horn shall be a king that comes up after them and subdue 3 of the 10 kings.

Daniel 7:21-23
Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

He will speak great things against GOD ... He will reign for a time, times and dividing of a time (3 and 1/2 years) but God will destroy him.

Daniel 7:25-27
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Now ... Let's take a look at what we have so far ... It is clear by both dreams that there are 4 empires and then comes Antichrists empire. The 4 empires are Babylon, Medo Persia, Greece and Rome. You may ask, were there not 7 kings according to John? Yes, Egypt and Assyria were two past empires that overtook Israel before Babylon, Medo Persia, Greece and Rome. This means that the 5 past empires, in order of their appearance on the timeline of life are ... Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo Persia, and Greece. Note: Some of these countries have new names now. The 5 countries names are now ... Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran and Greece. Then we have the remaining two empires ... One which is which means this empire was ruling at the time John wrote Revelation ... Rome and one that was to be after that time... Germany.

As you recall, John said (In the book of Revelation) that that there are 7 kings and that 5 have fallen ... One is and one is yet to be. The next verse says that the beast that was and is not will be the 8th king and is one of the 7. In layman's terms ... One of seven past kings will be resurrected and become the Antichrist. The 7 kings are 7 rulers that tormented Israel.

Since the vision was given to John back in 90 AD we can determine what kingdom and rulers were of the 7.

There were seven nations that the rulers hated the Jewish people and went out of the way to torture them. These seven nations are ...

Egypt - Pharaoh ... Enslaved them for 430 years
Assyria - Sennacherib ...
Peeled the skin off of the Jewish people and hung them up.
Babylon (Iraq) / Nebuchadnezzar ...
Destroyed their city, temple and enslaved them.
Medo-Peria (Iran) - Haman ...
Tortured Jewish people.  
Greece - Antiochus Epiphanes ...
Tortured the Jewish people for 3 and a half years. 
Rome - Nero Caesar ...
Crucified and beheaded Christian people for years.
Germany - Hitler ...
Killed over 6 million Jewish people.

 

FIVE HAVE FALLEN

 John said the beast that was and is not will be the 8th king (antichrist).

When John said the word WAS ... That means the kingdom reigned before 90 AD, which eliminates Germany (Hitler) ... The words "IS NOT" eliminates Rome (Caesar), since Rome was ruling at that time.

This leaves us with 5 kings that had fallen, as he said ...

 

Get Ready ...
WHO IS THE ANTICHRIST?

In Daniel, Chapter 11, it tells of Persia (Iran) overtaking Babylon and how Greece overtook Persia, by Alexander the great

Daniel 11:3
And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.

If you were to get an encyclopedia or History book, you can confirm that verses 4-20, have occurred, in the past. 

Daniel 11:21
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.

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 a celebration that is still carried out to this day. It is called Hanukkah. 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 our history books and yet the Bible has the story continue on. History books has this man dying at this point in time.

Daniel 11:36
And 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.

Suddenly ... In the next verse, Antiochus is fighting against God and the story is suddenly in OUR future, as if he died and comes back to life.

Daniel 11:37
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. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain. And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

That is because he does, as predicted:

Revelation 17:8
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.

Antiochus was a ruler of Greece and is one of the 5 past kings, he also reigned for 3 and 1/2 years, as will Antichrist, he set up an abomination of desolation, as will Antichrist ... Both are called little horns. Even his name Antiochus ... How many people have ANTI as the 1st 4 letters of their name or title? Ladies and gentlemen ...

 

THE ANTICHRIST IS ...

Antiochus IS Antichrist !!!

Now let us travel into the past in search for more evidence on Antichrist's kingdom and find out what countries he will control and what movements and changes in governments that we should be watching for. We will start where we left off, in the book of Daniel. As you recall, when Nebuchadnezzar had his statue dream, it said that in the days of these kingdoms God would consume ALL of these kingdoms and set up His kingdom, which will be eternal.  Daniel 2:44-45 This means that these 4 kingdoms are included in Antichrist's empire. Babylon, Medo-Persian, Greece, Roman or now known as IRAQ ... IRAN ... GREECE ... EUROPE and we also have another entity, known as "clay"  Daniel 2:41-42 which are of the ten toes of the feet and also known as the ten horns/kings  Daniel 7:24  But they are called the 10 horns and 10 kings in another book in the Bible, Revelation. So, let us go back to Revelation, chapter 13 ...

 

Antichrist's Empire

Revelation 13:1 The beast (Antichrist) empire will have 7 heads and 10 horns with crowns (these are the 10 kings we just read of in Daniel and is again proven in Revelation 17:12 This empire will consist of the lion, leopard and bear (Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece) which we read of in Daniel 7: 4-6 ...  Revelation 13:2  The 7 Heads are 7 past kings, which we learned earlier Revelation 17:10 and one of these 7 heads has a deadly wound, but was healed  Revelation 13: 3 This is Antichrist himself  Revelation 13:14 as Antiochus before being brought back from the dead as we learned before.  So Antichrist's empire includes all empires of the seven past kings and the 10 kings which are part iron and part clay which are not known to us yet.  As you recall, the 7 empires were revealed ...  Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Medo Persian, Grecian, Roman and German.

All of these empires tormented and ruled Israel in one way or another. After Rome there was only ONE empire that attacked the Jewish people, because the Jewish people had no homeland after 70 AD when the Roman Empire completely destroyed Jerusalem. This 7th empire is Germany, and it's leader was Hitler. He hated the Jewish people so much that he had 6 million of them killed in a manner that I will not even discuss, but is known as the Holocaust.  We now know who the 7 heads are, and the Bible has proven repeatedly, that they will all be a part of Antichrist's empire.

EGYPT - SYRIA - IRAQ - IRAN - GREECE - ROME - GERMANY

But, what about the 10 horns/toes/kings that are part iron and part clay we read about earlier?

Daniel 2:41-44
And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
 

We know that the iron represents the Roman empire, because the empire just before the feet, on the statue, was iron and was proven to be the Roman empire. So the question is, what is the clay? Did you notice that the metals on the statue diminished in value as each empire came forth? From Gold to Silver to Brass to Iron and now Clay. It will be a weak or broken empire.  

Let us find out who the 10 toes / kingdoms will be ...

Our journey will now take a strange twist. There was a prophet named Ezekiel, which had many visions from God, but we will focus on one vision that he had in the book of Ezekiel, Chapters 38 and 39. These two chapters are about Antichrist's empire. I will give you a few pieces of evidence.

Ezekiel 38:8
After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

 It is saying that this group of countries will attack Israel AFTER they have returned from being scattered and after their land was laid waste. Since the Israelites were scattered and the land was laid waste from 70 AD to 1948 AD, this group of countries would have to be in our future, since has not happened yet.

It says in the book of Ezekiel that God will plead with them with pestilence and blood, and rain upon them great hailstones, fire and brimstone.

Ezekiel 38:22
And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

This matches perfectly with the 6th Trumpet, in the book of Revelation.

Revelation 9:18
By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

In  it is almost word for word for what happens at "Armageddon" ...

Ezekiel 39:17-20
And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.

This is what it says in the book of Revelation ...

Revelation 19:17-18
And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

  So now we KNOW that this is indeed a prophecy of Antichrist's empire which is to attack Israel.

In chapters 38 and 39 of Ezekiel, we will look at the kingdoms that are mentioned as being a part of this END TIME Antichrist alliance. In Ezekiel Chapter 38 ... It states that Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal will be the ones that attack Israel and that Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, Togarmah and many others will join them in this attack.

Ezekiel 38:1-6
And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

Now, when I first read of these places, I had no idea where most of these places were because the names in the Bible are what these places used to be called. So, we will now go to the history books again to find out what these places are called today. (This can be confirmed at a Library or even on the Web by typing in these names).

Gog: The leader of these countries that attacks Israel. It is said that Antiochus fulfilled some of Ezekiel's prophecy, but it was not completed. Well, we know why, he is coming back as Antichrist to finish the job.

Magog: Scythian nations (North of Caspian and Black sea) This area is now a member of the commonwealth of independent states. Those that broke off from the Soviet Union.

Mesheck:  Was the area of another state which is a member of the commonwealth of independent states. Those that broke off from the Soviet Union.

Tubal: Was the area that is now known as Georgia, another member of the  commonwealth of independent states. Those that broke off from the Soviet Union.

Persia: Is still known as Persia and was of the 7 past empires is also known as Iran.

Ethiopia: Is still in same area and called Ethiopia today.

Libya: Is still in same area and is still called Libya today.

Gomer: Was an area now known as Ukraine and is a member of the commonwealth of independent states. Those that broke off from the Soviet Union.

Togarmah: Was the area that is now known as Armenia, another member of the commonwealth of independent states. It appears we have found a common bond between several of these "states" that will be attacking Israel. They belong to the commonwealth of Independent states. Those that broke off from the Soviet Union.

Wow ... Many of these places that will come against Israel in the End Times are from the Commonwealth of Independent States ... There are 11 of these "independent" states, if you do not count Russia itself, which used to be part of the Soviet Union, but are now independent states. (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikstan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan)

Let us go back to the book of Daniel. In
 Daniel 7:24 It says that 10 kings shall arise "out of this kingdom" and 1 after them. VERY interesting coincidence. In addition, in Revelation 17: 12-13 it says that they are not real kings because they do not have a kingdom but receive power as kings with the beast (Antichrist) and that they have one mind, just as these do.

We may have just found our other 10, part clay, part broken horns.

 

ANTICHRIST AND HIS EMPIRE'S END ...

At the end of Antichrist's 3 AND A HALF years of terror ... It is time to pour out the wrath of God on those on Earth that chose not to believe in Jesus and/or accepted the mark and worshipped Antichrist and his image. The events that follow are known as ... The Vials.

 

1st Vial: Antichrist followers get sores.

Revelation 16:1-2
And I heard a great voice out of the Temple saying to the seven Angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

2nd Vial: All oceans become as blood.

Revelation 16:3
And the second Angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

3rd Vial: All freshwater becomes as blood.

Revelation 16:4-7
And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the Angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of Saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

4th Vial: The sun's heat scorches men.

Revelation 16:8-9
And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

5th Vial: Darkness and pain will overtake the Earth.

Revelation 16:10-11
And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

6th Vial: The Euphrates river dries up and the kings of the East are able to cross it as to battle. Three unclean spirits come out of Satan, Antichrist and the false prophet and they go to the kings of the earth to gather them to battle against GOD in a place called Armageddon.

Revelation 16:12-14
And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

7th Vial: A great voice says ...

It is DONE. Voices, thundering and the biggest Earthquake EVER.

Revelation 16:17-18
And the seventh Angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the Temple of Heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

NEXT ... Babylon Destroyed: Revelation 16:19. God remembered Babylon and it is time to judge it. In Revelation, Chapter 17, we learn of a new entity that will be a part of the End Times. It is the great whore that sits upon many waters: Revelation 17:1 ... with whom the worldly people indulged in her ways: Revelation 17:2 ... she sits atop of a beast with seven heads and 10 horns (Antichrist's empire) and is arrayed in purple and red and is decked with jewels and wealth: Revelation 17:3-4. On her head is written, "MYSTERY, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the Earth" ...  

Who in the world is this woman? We are given every clue necessary to figure out who she is in Chapters 17 and 18. We will begin our quest to solve this "MYSTERY".

 Revelation 17: 3           This place will "ride on" Antichrist's empire.
 Revelation 17: 4         
 This place's colors are purple and red.
 Revelation 17: 6          
It's a place that killed many Christians.
 Revelation 17: 9          
This place sits upon 7 mountains.
 Revelation 17: 15        
This place controls different nations & races.
 Revelation 17: 16        
The 10 kings hate and burn this place in the end.
 Revelation 17: 17          
It is a great city which rules kings of the Earth.
 Revelation 18: 8          
This place is destroyed in one day with fire
 Revelation 18: 12          
It is known for it's abundant merchandise.
 Revelation 18: 17-19   
This place is a sea port.

Now as I ponder on these clues to our "MYSTERY" many things continue to disturb me. Babylon is Iraq. And with as much as is going on in Iraq at this time, it would make for an easy scape goat. However, the word ... "MYSTERY" and many other bothersome truths continue to demand that we seek further. For example ...

Iraq is not a place known for it's killing of Christians.
It does not sit on seven mountains or hills.
It does not control different nations and races nor rule kings of the Earth.
It is known for oil, but not the merchandise mentioned.
It is NOT a sea port. 

BUT, I do know of a place that fits VERY well.

ROME/Vatican ...

It will be a part of Antichrist's empire, as we found out earlier.
 
It's colors are purple and red.

It does sit on seven hills.

It is the only city that controls many nations, peoples and kings, by way of the ... Catholic Church


It is known for all of the merchandise mentioned.

It is a seaport.

It has the most blood of the martyrs of Jesus, they crucified and beheaded most of the Apostles and martyrs there. As a matter of fact, they used to have these arenas where they would all gather and have Christian children put on sheep skins. They opened the doors to the arena, and the Christian children would run out with the sheepskins on making the noises of sheep (bahhhhhhhh) The Christian children were thinking it was a game, and did not know the Romans had ravenous wolves waiting to devour them ... All for the Roman's entertainment.

Since the writer of the book of Revelation, wrote this book on Patmos Island, which is a Roman prison, I guess I can see why he would need to write the word "Mystery" as to be able to have the vision he was given, shown to other Christians and not have it confiscated because the Romans did not like reading of their own doom.

We are NOT pointing any fingers ... However, we should keep our eyes on Rome and the Vatican, for they seem to fit the "Mystery" woman description VERY well.

VISIONS AND PROPHECY COMPARISON

If one takes all scripture presented in the Bible, it becomes obvious that antichrist's empire will be part iron (part Roman empire) lion, bear, leopard (Iraq, Iran and Greece) ... these will be part of his empire. Antichrist's empire will be part clay which is part of the old Soviet Union. Keep your eyes on these nations:

EGYPT
ETHIOPIA

GERMANY

GREECE
IRAQ
IRAN

LIBYA
ROME
SYRIA
PARTS OF EUROPE
NATIONS FROM FORMER SOVIET UNION

As you can see ... We must be aware and make others aware of antichrist and what signs we are to watch for so that when he reveals himself, we will not make the eternal mistake of believing him.

Some choose to suggest that antichrist has already come and gone.

The Bible clearly addresses this misconception:

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the TRUTH, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the TRUTH, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Jesus will return after antichrist has reigned terror for the prophesied time.
