The Antichrist in the Bible Secrets

The Bible gives us the clues within the Antichrist Scripture, that we need to figure out who he was ... And who he will be. In the Book of Revelation, Chapter 1, it says ... I, John, was given this vision ... He was on an island named Patmos, so this vision occurred in about 90 A.D., close to two thousand years ago.

Let's keep the Antichrist in the Bible tidbit of trut in mind as we head forward delving into the prophecies about the Antichrist.

Revelation 17:8-11

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.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
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.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

Now, be sure to put on your thinking cap ...

Antichrist was alive and is not alive and yet is. He says that there are 7 kings ... 5 have fallen and 1 is and that 1 is yet to be. Then, he says ... Antichrist is the 8th king and yet is one of the 7.

This means that as of 90 A.D., Antichrist had already been alive.

Antichrist was alive before 90 A.D., and was one of the 5 fallen kings.

But, which one?

Life of Antichrist in the Bible
Prophecies About the Antichrist Clues

Before we begin 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! That is exactly what the Bible is saying.

How can we doubt the possibility? With the advancement in DNA science and the cloning of animals and even the talk of cloning people. With all of the advanced technology we have now and will have soon ... Who can doubt this Antichrist Scripture Biblical claim?

The Antichrist in the Bible journey will take us back and forth through time as we seek the facts within the who is Antichrist Scripture. We will use the Bible as a road map. We will begin back around 587 B.C. when a king of Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar) had a nightmare. He dreamed of a statue and his dream was interpreted by a prophet of God, named Daniel.

Daniel 2:32-34

32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

In the prophecies about the Antichrist vision interpretation, Daniel is answering the king's strange request for someone to tell him what his dream was and what it meant. Daniel told him that the king's dream 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. Daniel told of a stone cut without hands that will 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.

Daniel interprets the dream for us:

Daniel 2:36-37

36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

He says that Nebuchadnezzar's empire Babylon was the gold head. That after him another empire would arise Medo Persia which is the silver and the next empire Greece which is the brass and the 4th empire would be Rome which was the iron.

Daniel 2:38-40

38 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.
39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
40 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 in history, as Daniel predicted many years before it occurred.)

Here Comes the Antichrist in the Bible
Antichrist Scripture Warning

Let us continue along in the Antichrist in the Bible. Daniel said 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

41 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.
42 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.
43 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.
44 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.
45 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 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 while searching for Antichrist Scripture, in Daniel, Chapter 7, Daniel himself had a dream of 4 beasts ... A lion, bear, leopard and an iron toothed beast. Antichrist's empire is compared to the same beasts:

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.

This beast had 10 horns.

Daniel 7:1-7

1 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.
2 Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.
3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
4 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.
5 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.
6 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.
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.

Vision of the Antichrist in the Bible
Prophecies About the Antichrist Revelation

Daniel's dream regarding the prophecies about the Antichrist is interpreted for us. Is the Antichrist here now? If you pay attention to detail and watch for the signs as we continue researching the Antichrist Scripture, you will soon be aware of the timing of the Antichrist arrival.

Daniel 7:16-27

16 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.
17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.
18 But the Saints of the most High shall take the Kingdom, and possess the Kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.
19 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;
20 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.
21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the Saints, and prevailed against them;
22 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.
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.
24 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.
25 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.
26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
27 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.

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 7:19-20

19 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;
20 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.

Saints and the Antichrist in the Bible
Antichrist Scripture Fear

In the Prophecies About the Antichrist ... The small horn will make war with the Saints, but the Saints would win in the end and God's Kingdom would be set up. Remember that we learned earlier from the Antichrist Scripture that Antichrist's kingdom has 10 parts as well ... Let us research more of the, who is Antichrist Scripture.

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

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.


Revelation 17:12-13

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.

Another Prophecies about the Antichrist Clue ... 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 subdues 3 of the 10 kings.

Daniel 7:21-24

21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the Saints, and prevailed against them;
22 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.
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.
24 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.

Is the Antichrist Here Now Time Table ... He will reign for a time, times and dividing of a time (3½ years) but then ... God will destroy him:

Daniel 7:25-27

25 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.
26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
27 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 learned so far about the Antichrist in the Bible sifting through the various passages sharing our discoveries from the Antichrist Scripture ... It is clear, according to both dreams concerning the Antichrist prophetic empire, that there are 4 empires and then Antichrist's empire. The 4 empires are Babylon, Medo Persia, Greece and Rome. Rome was the kingdom that was ruling during the time the Revelation vision occurred.

So, the king that was:

Revelation 17:10-11

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

The king that was, had to be before the Roman empire. But, which one? Put on your thinking cap for the next part of the prophecies about the Antichrist. Now, there are seven kings mentioned ... So who are the other two? These are all kingdoms which hated and harmed the Israelites. What other two kingdoms before Babylon hated and persecuted Israel?

As we know from the Bible, Egypt and Assyria were the other two past empires that tormented Israel before Babylon, 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 Kingdoms.

Note: Some of these countries have new names now. The 5 countries names are now:

Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran and Greece.

Now what about the seventh kingdom that hated and persecuted Israelites? We will discuss the seventh kingdom (the one after Rome) that tormented the Israelites on the next page of the Antichrist Bible study. But before we do that, let's continue our search for which one of the five past rulers Antichrist was, and died, and will come back to life.

Get ready ... You are about to find out who Antichrist was.

In Daniel, Chapter 11, it tells of Persia 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.

Let's take a little ... Is the Antichrist Here Now field trip. If you were to get an encyclopedia or history book, you can confirm that Verses 4-20, have already occurred.

Then 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.

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.

As you read the Antichrist Scripture 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.

Again ... History has this man dying at this point in this chapter.

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.

Is the Antichrist Here Now, Head Scratcher ... Suddenly, Antiochus is fighting against God and the story is suddenly our future, as if he died and comes back to life or something:

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.

The Antichrist in the Bible facts will prove that it is, because he does come back to life, just as predicted in John's vision of the Antichrist entity:

Revelation 17:8-11

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.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
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.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

Antiochus was a ruler of Greece and is one of the 5 past kings, as is Antichrist. Antiochus also reigned terror on Israel for 3½ 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 4 letters of their name or title?

The Antichrist in the Bible Summary
Is the Antichrist Here Now or Later

Ladies and gentlemen here is the answer from the prophecies about the Antichrist. Spiritually speaking ... Antiochus will be brought back from the dead and will become the evil enemy of Christians, who is known as Antichrist. As anti-Christian as he ever was and even worse. Now, let us travel into the past yet again in search for more evidence from the Antichrist Scripture concerning the coming Antichrist kingdom and find out what countries Antichrist will control and what movements we should be watching for, as we prepare for the End Times. Is the Antichrist here now? Prepare to find out much more as the prophecies about the Antichrist continue.
