GOD REVEALS TO DANIEL BY DREAMS AND VISIONS WORLD HISTORY FROM THE BABYLONIAN EMPIRE RIGHT THROUGH TO OUR LORD’S ETERNAL REIGN

 

Note: before reading this section please read the book of Daniel and the book of Revelation (King James - AV 1611). Read carefully Daniel chapters 2, 7 - 12 and Revelation chapters 12 - 22.

 

A brief summary of the 4 dreams / visions given to the prophet Daniel:

 

1). Daniel Chapter 7 - World history from the Babylonian Empire right through to our Lord’s eternal Reign. (This is given also in chapter 2) 

 

2). Chapter 8 - World history from the Mede and Persian Empires to the battle of Armageddon.

 

3). Chapter 9 - Church history (Israel and Gentile believers ) from the commandment given by God through the Persian King Cyrus to restore and build Jerusalem (Isaiah 44 v 28, chapter 45 v 1-6, Ezra 6 v 14), fulfilled in Daniel’s lifetime, to the Anointing of The Most Holy, that of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the battle of Armageddon.

 

4). Chapters 10, 11, 12 - World history from the last 3 Persian Kings to the battle of Armageddon and God’s Judgment of His people and the faithful (wise) rewarded.

 

I will use Daniel chapter 7 as a base to start with as it is the summary of World history from the Babylonian Empire through to the Eternal Reign of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

 

DANIEL 7

 

Daniel:7:2: Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.

Da:7:3: And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.

 

1). The 4 winds of heaven speak of God’s working in, and striving with, the whole of mankind (north, south, east, west) even as the 4 beasts show, God’s sovereignty over man and His working through the duration of 4 world empires.

 

Genesis:6:3: And the LORD said, MY SPIRIT shall not always STRIVE with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

 

John:3:7: Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

John:3:8: The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

 

2). The great sea speaks of the peoples and nations of the earth.

 

Revelation:17:1b: I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

 

Revelation:17:15: And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

(Isaiah 57 v 20, 21. Armies are spoken of as waters e.g. Isaiah 8 v 7-8)

 

What our Lord Jesus speaks of in John 3 v 5-8 and John 16 v 8-11 can be seen in summary form in Daniel 7 v 2 - the work of God, striving  with man, by the Holy Ghost, to bring him to repentance.  

 

John:16:8: And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

 

John:3:5: Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Joh:3:6: That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

 

Note: As physically ( flesh ) we are born by our mother through water into this world; so spiritually we are born again, by the will of God The Father, through the seed of The Word of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, by the working of The Holy Spirit, through the water of God’s Holy Word and His precious blood into the Kingdom of Heaven - Alleluia.

 

John:6:44: No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

(John 17 v 6)

 

John:1:1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

 

John:1:14: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

 

Luke:8:5a: A sower went out to sow HIS seed:

 

Luke:8:11b: The seed is the word of God.

 

John:3:5b:, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

 

John:4:13: Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

Joh:4:14: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

 

John:6:47: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

Joh:6:48: I am that bread of life.

 

John:6:54: Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

 

John:6:63: It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

 

1John:5:6: This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

1Jo:5:7: For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

1Jo:5:8: And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

 

Let all that love God continue, by the power and working of the Holy Ghost in us, to be washed in the water of His Word (Ephesians 5 v 26-27) and in His precious blood (Revelation 7 v 14), feeding on the milk and meat of His Word day and night and walking in obedience to it; that we be a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable in His sight.

3). The 4 beasts are clearly 4 world Empires / kingdoms. In understanding the extent of a world empire it needs to be understood that at God’s chosen time and for a limited period each empire has power over the other nations of the earth, even if these nations are not invaded and conquered. The empire is the focus of power on earth as a king of kings. The exception to this are the 4 heads of the 3rd beast which are smaller kingdoms. I will take the Babylonian world empire under King Nebuchadnezzar as an example to show the power given by God and its extent.

 

Daniel:2:37: Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

Da:2:38: 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.

 

Daniel:4:20: The tree that thou sawest, which grew, and was strong, whose height reached unto the heaven, and the sight thereof to all the earth;

Da:4:21: Whose leaves were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all; under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and upon whose branches the fowls of the heaven had their habitation:

Da:4:22: It is thou, O king, that art grown and become strong: for thy greatness is grown, and reacheth unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end of the earth.

 

Note: The 4th world empire under Antichrist is not only given power over the whole earth but devours it.

 

Daniel:7:23: 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.

 

1st BEAST

 

Daniel:7:4: 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.

 

1). The 1st beast is the Babylonian empire (Daniel 2 v 37, 38).

 

2). The eagle’s wings plucked off speak of King Nebuchadnezzar being humbled by God - Daniel chapter 4.

 

Daniel:4:14: He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off his branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from his branches:

 

3). The man’s heart given by God speaks of Nebuchadnezzar’s restoration by God and his repentance toward God.

 

Daniel:4:34: And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:

Da:4:35: And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

Da:4:36: At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellers and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.

Da:4:37: Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

 

Several sermons could be written on King Nebuchadnezzar’s confession to Almighty God, but I will highlight 2 truths. God used this world ruler some 2500 years ago to show to His people, that He, The Living God, is sovereign in all things and over all things at all times and in wisdom we must walk humbly before Him. Secondly, it is God alone that grants repentance and He does so to whom He chooses (Romans 9 v 11-28, John 12 v 38-40, Matthew 13 v 10-16, Mark 4 v 10-13, John 6 v 44, John 17 v 6).

 

Isaiah:45:6: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me.  I am the LORD, and there is none else.

Isa:45:7: I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Isa:45:8: Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.

Isa:45:9: Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker!  Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth.  Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou?  or thy work, He hath no hands?

Isa:45:10: Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou?  or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?

Isa:45:11: Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

Isa:45:12: I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

 

2nd BEAST

 

Daniel:7:5: 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.

 

1). The 2nd beast is the Mede / Persian empire(s) - Daniel chapter 5

 

Daniel:5:28: PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.

 

Daniel:2:32b: and his arms of silver

 

Daniel:2:39a: And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee,

 

(Note: inferior being that the extremely large and powerful Babylonian empire was divided - Medes and Persians - Daniel 5 v 28).

 

Daniel:8:3: Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.

Da:8:4: I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.

 

Daniel:8:20: The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.

 

2). The 3 ribs speak of the Median, Persian and Babylonian Empires combined (note, as, the 4 wings and 4 heads of the 3rd beast speak of its kingdom).

 

3). The bear being raised up on one side speaks of the Persian Kings of this Empire(s); who were greater in power than the Kings of Media.

 

Daniel:8:3b: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.

 

Daniel:8:20b: two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.

 

Daniel:10:13: But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.

 

Daniel:10:20: Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee?  and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come.

 

Daniel:11:2: And now will I shew thee the truth.  Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.

 

 

3rd BEAST

 

Daniel:7:6: 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.

 

1). The 3rd beast is the Grecian empire.

 

Daniel:2:32b: his belly and his thighs of brass,

Daniel:2:39b: and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

 

Daniel:8:5: And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.

Da:8:6: And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had there seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.

Da:8:7: And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.

Da:8:8: Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.

 

Daniel:8:21: And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.

Da:8:22: Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.

 

Note: The great horn spoken of is clearly Alexander the Great (approx 356-323 BC), the son of Philip II of Greece (approx 382-336 BC).

‘Touched not the ground’ - he conquered the Persian empire (the higher horn that came up last - ram) very rapidly, but at the height of his power aged 33, he suddenly died of a fever - ‘when he was strong, the great horn was broken.’

The dividing of his dominion is foretold in 2 ways. The 4 heads of the leopard and the 4 notable horns of the he goat speak of the 4 kingdoms; the 4 wings of a fowl and ‘toward the 4 winds of heaven’ speak of the south, the north, the east and the west.

_____________________________

 

Note: Israel is counted as the centre of the earth and more specifically Jerusalem. This is because our Lord Jesus Christ shall Reign from here for the golden 1000 year Reign. It is here that God has chosen to set His Holy Name (Isaiah 66 v 15-24, Zechariah 14, Zephaniah 3 v 14-20, Micah 4 v 1-8, Joel 3 v 9-21 Isaiah 61 and 62 etc.) Israel is also positioned centrally geographically, as you look at the rest of the world as a whole. It is also Israel that joins the continent of Africa to the Middle East, Asia, Russia and Europe.

______________________________

 

Of the 4 kingdoms rising out of the Grecian empire, which span the rest of world history until the rise of the beast of Revelation 13, Daniel 7 v 7- 8; two ‘geographical’ Kingdoms are spoken of more prominently - the king of the ‘South’, and the king of the ‘North’(Daniel 11 v 5-20). I say ‘geographical Kingdoms’ because these geographical areas are controlled (at different times) by more than one of the 4 kingdoms, in accordance with God’s will. These 2 prominent geographical areas are shown to us in Daniel 2 v 32; the belly of brass speaks of the Grecian empire of Alexander the Great and the 2 thighs of brass speak of these 2 geographical kingdoms (areas), North and South. Antichrist rises out of the ‘the king of the North’, the old Roman Empire (Daniel 11 v 15, 21, 36, Daniel 9 v 26b-27, Daniel 8 v 8-12, v 23-25); Antichrist being the 7th. king of Revelation 17 v 10.

 

The king of the South and the king of the North - Daniel 11v 1-21 :

 

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

 

Daniel:11:4: And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

Da:11:5: And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

 

king of the South:

 

The first kingdom to control the geographical area of the South after the death of Alexander the great was the combined Ptolemy / Seleucid empire. This kingdom continued in dominance for almost 300 years until finally conquered by the Roman empire. 

 

king of the North:

 

Daniel:11:15: So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fenced cities: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand.

Da:11:16: But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed. (the glorious land = Israel)

 

The dominance of the Roman empire is well known. The Roman empire (king of the North) is spoken of up until v 20. From verse 21 to 39 of Daniel 11, the scriptures focus on the final Antichrist - the beast of Revelation 13. Hence there is a large time gap between v 20 and v 21; but they are given in sequence to show us where Antichrist will come from.

 

Note 1: Daniel 11 v 17 to 19 speak of Julius Caesar (100- 44 BC approx.). Understand that the name ‘king of the North’ or ‘king of the South’ is given as an overall name for all the kings in any one kingdom. (‘the daughter of women’ v 17 is Cleopatra VII). 

 

Note 2: Daniel 11 v 20 speaks of Caesar Augustus who succeeded Julius Caesar (he is also the ‘prince’ mentioned in v 18 - a detailed study of true history reveals this clearly).

 

Daniel:11:20a: Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom:.

 

Scripture gives us the answer for who this raiser of taxes is, in Luke 2 v 1.

 

Luke:2:1: And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

 

Note 3: Prophecy concerning the Roman empire in Daniel 11 ends here and the reason should be obvious to see. It is the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ that divides history - ‘BC’ and ‘AD’ - ‘Before Christ’ and ‘Anno Domini’ - ‘in the year of our Lord’. It was at this time that Satan’s earthly kingdom (Luke 4 v 5-6) was taken from him by our Lord Jesus Christ - John 12 v 31and 32, Matthew 28 v 18. This earthly kingdom shall be temporarily given back to Satan for the World rule of Antichrist (42 months); to prove (test) the hearts of the inhabitants of the earth. Hence the scarlet coloured beast of Revelation 17 that was, and is not, and yet shall be, and hence why v 21 of Daniel 11 speaks of Antichrist.   

 

Following is a simple diagram showing the main points of Daniel 11 v 3-20

 

A SUMMARY OF DANIEL 11 v 3 - 20

 

  

                           GLORIOUS LAND, DANIEL 11 v 16 = ISRAEL

                                                                                               

DANIEL 9 v 26b - 27 speaks of Antichrist as ‘the prince that shall come’. The ‘people’ who destroy the city and the sanctuary is Rome. This was carried out in fulfilment of prophecy in AD 70 by the Roman army under Titus - Luke 21 v 20-24, Luke 19 v 41-44.

                                                                                                                                               

The diagram above is not given for exact historical dates of the rise and fall of power (historians sometimes differ in their exact dates), but rather to give a clearer understanding of Daniel 11 v 5-20 and the approximate boundaries.

 

 

 

 

ANTICHRIST

 

4th BEAST / 10 KINGS AND FINAL ANTICHRIST

 

The 4 visions given by God to the prophet Daniel (chapter 7-12) focus on this 4th beast, and especially the Antichrist. When you consider that the time period of Antichrist’s world rule is only three and a half years, and compare this to world history, it is staggering the amount of prophetic warning and exposing of him given. This highlights the terrible wickedness and destruction that lies ahead. But the focus of this in scripture is the destruction of Antichrist at the battle of Armageddon and that of the wicked by our Lord Jesus Christ and our Lord’s 1000 year Reign, Amen.

 

Daniel chapter 11 v 21- 39 reveals in detail the work of Antichrist and is given, in particular, for the sake of Israel going through the Great Tribulation - read Daniel 10

 v 14.

 

4th beast / 10 kings (10 horns) - Daniel 7 v 7:

v7 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.

 

In Revelation 13 v 1-2 we are given some more details of this 4th beast.

 

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.

Re: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.

 

We can immediately recognize that the apostle John is seeing the first 3 beasts of Daniel 7 combined as this 4th terrible beast plus heads, horns and crowns.

It is the 3rd beast (Grecian empire / he goat) that is more prominent than the 2 beasts before it - ‘And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard’

This is shown again to us in the Great Image of Daniel 2 v 32b and 33:

 

Daniel:2:32b: his belly and his thighs of brass,

Da:2:33: His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

 

The leg naturally progresses from the thigh, (The legs and thighs being the stronger part of the body) and belly (lower body trunk) supporting the rest of the body.

 

The Antichrist comes out of the old Grecian empire (brass belly, leopard, he goat) - Daniel 8 v 8-12, Daniel 8 v 21-25 (hence the body of a leopard in Revelation 13 v 2), and more specifically from the king of the north, the old Roman empire - Daniel 11 v 21-39, Daniel 9 v 26b-27 (the more dominant of the 2 brass thighs. Even as the Persian kings were more dominant than the kings of Media, being the stronger arm - Daniel 8 v 3, 20, Daniel 11 v 2-3).

 

(Note: The 2 powers of Media and Persia are shown in the 2 arms of silver - Daniel 2

v 32; the breast showing the older but greater Babylonian empire now between two arms.)

 

Even though Antichrist will come to power after the 10 kings (10 horns / 10 crowns); the purpose of the 10 kings is to give their power to Antichrist. This does not mean Antichrist is not known, he most certainly will be, being the one who confirms the peace treaty between Israel and Arab nations (Daniel 9 v 27). But it is only God’s people who know he is Antichrist - the beast of Revelation 13; the rest of the world will be deceived by him and worship him.

 

THE RISE OF ANTICHRIST

 

Let us look at some of the scriptures in Daniel that speak of Antichrist - his pretence of peace - his initial flattery in confirming the Middle East peace treaty between Israel and Arab nations - and his breaking of the covenant by war:

 

Daniel:9:26b: and the people of the PRINCE that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

Da:9:27: AND HE SHALL CONFIRM THE COVENANT WITH MANY FOR ONE WEEK: AND IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK HE SHALL CAUSE THE SACRIFICE AND THE OBLATION TO CEASE, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

 

Note: To understand the context of Daniel 9 v 26b and 27, study v 24 to 27. ‘the prince that shall come’ speaks of Antichrist. The Roman army under Titus destroyed the city of Jerusalem and the temple (sanctuary) in AD 70; in fulfillment of the words of our Lord Jesus Christ - Luke 19 v 41- 46, Luke 21 v 20-24.

 

Daniel:8:23: And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, A KING OF FIERCE COUNTENANCE, AND UNDERSTANDING DARK SENTENCES, SHALL STAND UP.

Da:8:24: And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

Da:8:25: And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, AND BY PEACE SHALL DESTROY MANY: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

 

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.

Da:11:22: And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before HIM, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the COVENANT.

 

Note: The ‘prince of the covenant’ is not speaking of Antichrist but of ‘Israel’s Prime Minister’ who the Antichrist deceives; we will look at this in detail later.

 

Daniel:11:23: And after the league made with him HE shall work deceitfully: for HE shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.

Daniel:11:24a: HE SHALL ENTER PEACEABLY even upon the fattest places of the province;

 

Daniel:11:28: Then shall HE return into HIS land with great riches; and HIS HEART shall be AGAINST THE HOLY COVENANT; and HE shall do exploits, and return to HIS own land.

Da:11:29: At the time appointed HE shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.

Da:11:30: For the ships of Chittim shall come against HIM: therefore HE shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against THE HOLY COVENANT: so shall HE do; HE shall even return, and have intelligence with them that FORSAKE THE HOLY COVENANT.

Da:11:31: And arms shall stand on HIS part, and they shall POLLUTE THE SANCTUARY OF STRENGTH, AND SHALL TAKE AWAY THE DAILY SACRIFICE, AND THEY SHALL PLACE THE ABOMINATION THAT MAKETH DESOLATE.

 

(I have Capitalized HE, HIM, HIS in the last 8 verses to highlight where Antichrist is being spoken of.)

 

Daniel:8:9: And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.

Da:8:10: And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.

Da:8:11: Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.

Da:8:12: And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.

Da:8:13: Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?

Da:8:14: And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

 

Details on Antichrist revealed in prophecy:

 

1). Antichrist confirms the 7 year peace treaty in the Middle East. The last ‘week’ (Daniel 9 v 27) of the seventy weeks of Daniel 9 v 24 speaks of the last 7 years of world history. 

 

2). Antichrist is the one who rules the world for three and a half years (time, times and half a time) / 42 months / 1260 days (Jewish calendar time not Gentile), which is half of the last 7 years (last one week) - Revelation 13 v 5, Revelation 11 v 2, Daniel 7 v 25, Daniel 12 v 7. Hence he attacks Israel ‘in the midst of the week’ (Antichrist world rule is the last 3 ˝ years of world history).

 

3). Antichrist is the one who takes away the daily sacrifice and sets up the abomination of desolation in the temple of God - Daniel 8 v 9-12, Daniel 11 v 31, Daniel 9 v 27. (Understand that the temple of God in Jerusalem will be rebuilt during the great tribulation e.g. Revelation 11v 1-2, very shortly after the Rapture).

 

4). Antichrist is the one that exalts himself as God in the temple of God - 2 Thessalonians 2 v 4, 8-10, Revelation 13 v 5-6, Daniel 8 v 11, 25b, Daniel 11 v 36, Daniel 7 v 8b, 11, 25.

 

5) And he is the one whom our Lord Jesus Christ destroys at the battle of Armageddon - Revelation 19 v 11-21, Revelation 16 v 12-21, Zechariah 14 v 1-15, Joel 3 v 2-17, Ezekiel 38 v 18-23, Isaiah 34, Isaiah 13, Isaiah 66 v 15-16,  Isaiah 24 v 19-22a, Jude 1v 14-15, 2Thessalonians 2 v 8, Daniel 7 v 11, 26, Daniel 8 v 25b, Habakkuk chapter 3 etc.

 

We will look at the work of Antichrist under several headings to give a clear understanding of where he comes from, who he is, and his evil work.

 

WHO IS ANTICHRIST AND WHERE DOES HE COME FROM?

 

If this question was asked to the church of God today, many would flounder to give the answer. But the answer to this question has been well known to the true church of Jesus Christ since the Acts of the Apostles right up until recent times. The answer is given to us in God’s Holy Word, and is shown to us in the history / testimony, of the true church of Jesus Christ and her great sufferings. It is only the lukewarm churches of the latter generation who do not know the testimony of scripture and have forgotten the testimony of history; who have been lulled to sleep by the Great whore of Revelation 17 and 18. The truth is, the line of antichrist has continued unbroken from the old Roman empire right through to our present day; we are only waiting to see the rise of  the ‘final Antichrist’ of Revelation 13, and this is about to happen.

 

We will look at this under 2 sub-headings:

1). The Word of God / true church history and the Great Tribulation that has already taken place.

2). The final Great Tribulation of Revelation 13 and 14 under the final Antichrist.

 

 

1). THE WORD OF GOD / TRUE CHURCH HISTORY AND THE

GREAT TRIBULATION THAT HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE.

 

Revelation 6 v 9-11:

Revelation:6:9: And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

Re:6:10: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

Re:6:11: And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

 

Revelation 18 v 20-24 (Read and study Revelation 17 and 18 carefully)

Revelation:18:20: Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

Re:18:21: And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

Re:18:22: And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

Re:18:23-24: And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

 

Revelation:17:1: And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

 Re:17:2: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

Re:17:3: So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

Re:17:4: And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Re:17:5: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Re:17:6a: And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus:

 

Revelation:17:9: And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

 

Revelation:17:15: And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

Re:17:16: And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

Re:17:17: For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Re:17:18: And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

 

There is only one place on the earth that has all the hallmarks of Revelation 17 and 18, fulfilling prophecy, and is situated upon 7 mountains - the city of Rome. This ancient Capital of the old Roman Empire (The King of the North), is drenched with the blood of the people of God. What the Caesars of Rome began under Nero, the Popes of Rome continued. It is estimated that the Popes of Rome alone are responsible for the slaughter of 68 million of God’s people. Rome is the centre of religious idolatry (the apostate church) - the Vatican / the Pope being the very seat of Antichrist.

 

 

1a). THE GREAT CITY UPON 7 MOUNTAINS - ‘MYSTERY BABYLON’

 

Revelation:17:18: And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

 

Revelation:17:9: And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

 

When the apostle John was given the vision of Revelation on the Isle of Patmos in AD 96, there was only one city that ruled the world and was situated upon 7 mountains, ROME. The bloodthirsty emperor of Rome, Domitian, responsible for the death of many thousands of God’s people, had banished the Apostle John to the Isle of Patmos after trying to boil him alive in a cauldron of oil. If you had asked the early church who was the ‘Babylon' of Revelation 17 and 18, the answer would have been unanimous - Rome. From early church records, ‘Babylon’ was the name sometimes used when speaking of Rome and the work of Satan. This was not only because of the book of Revelation, but also because in the Old Testament is found the prophetic revelation of this centre of evil. A careful study of the books of Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah and Daniel reveals this many times. The rise of Antichrist from the king of the North, Daniel 11 (the Roman Empire, not the Babylon of Iraq) was by the time of the early church well understood - Rome being firmly established before the early church came into being (note also that there would be no ‘Mystery’ if ‘Mystery Babylon’ was in Iraq, for old Babylon was / is well known). The burden of Babylon in Isaiah 13 verses 1-13 (plus) is clearly not speaking of Iraq, but rather of the destruction of ‘the king of Babylon’ ‘Lucifer’ and his armies by our Lord Jesus Christ at the battle of Armageddon. Isaiah 34 v 9- 17, Isaiah 13 v 19- 22, Isaiah 14 v 4, 22-23, Revelation 14 v 8, Revelation 18, Revelation 19 v 1- 3 and Revelation 16 v 19 all speak of the double Judgment of Rome which is yet to come and which will remain visible during our Lord’s 1000 year Reign on earth as a warning.

 

Note: Isaiah 14 v 1-27 speaking of the king of Babylon / Lucifer is a Proverb that will be spoken against Satan and his followers by God’s people during our Lord’s 1000 year Reign when Satan is cast into the pit (Revelation 20 v 1-3). Study Isaiah 14 v 1-27 carefully and you will see this (note also Ezekiel 28).

 

Note: What is revealed in the book of Revelation can be found in the Old Testament time and time again - if you study the Old Testament carefully, e.g. the Judgments of Revelation, the new heaven and new earth as in Isaiah 65 v 17, Isaiah 66 v 22.

 

Drunk with the blood of the saints:

 

Revelation:17:6a: And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus:

 

The sufferings of God’s people recorded in the famous and much used book of the Protestant church for hundreds of years ‘Fox’s book of Martyrs’; begins with the persecution of the early church under 10 Caesars of Rome; under whom many hundreds of thousands of God’s people, were tortured and put to death - Nero, Domitian, Trajan, Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, Severus, Maximus, Decius, Valerian, Aurelian, Diocletian. This bloodbath started by the Caesars of Rome was most meticulously followed by the self appointed apostate Popes of Rome.

 

7 mountains:

 

Rome is the world famous ancient city built upon 7 mountains (also known as 7 hills). It has boasted of itself in time past, as being the eternal / holy city of God (blasphemy).

The 7 mountains upon which Rome is built are as follows: Cappitoline, Quirinal, Viminal, Esquiline, Caelian (Coelian / Celio), Aventine and Palatine.

 

Note: ‘The mount of Olives’, would be called by many, a large hill, but in fact scripture calls the mount of Olives a ‘mountain’ both in the Old and New Testament.

 

Zechariah:14:4: And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, ..............and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. (Read also  Acts 1 v 9-12 combined with Matthew 28 v 16)

 

The great whore that sits upon 7 mountains can be seen on the coinage of the old Roman empire. A coin in the collection of the British Museum, minted in 71 A.D. during the reign of Caesar Vespasian, depicts the city of Rome as both a woman seated on 7 mountains, and a wolf suckling Romulus and Remus (the founders of the rival settlement of Rome). Rome of the old Roman empire, the centre of Idol / Caesar worship and the killing of God’s people, did not try to hide its true face - unlike the Vatican today - ‘MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH’. Today she pretends with blood stained hands (the Vatican that is) to be nothing to do with the city upon 7 mountains (hills), being found geographically within the old Roman city walls extended by Pope Leo IV (848-852) to protect the Vatican, but over the Tiber river. But the crowning seat of power (cathedra) of her Popes given to her by the Emperor Constantine ‘The Basilica of St. John Lateran’ - is found at the opposite end of the city of Rome to her (the Vatican) and her apostate churches are everywhere in between. See also section - ‘The 7 mountains of Rome, the 8th the Vatican’

 

After the suffering of the early church under the Caesars of Rome of which the martyrs were innumerable, there came the Papal persecutions. It is historically recorded, that the Papal persecutions, committed more enormities of wickedness against the true church of Jesus Christ, than ever disgraced the annals of paganism. Under Papal command, the inquisitions of the Roman Catholic church are responsible for the torture and murder of an estimated 68 million people of God. As I have read some of the many accounts of the suffering of God’s people under the Popes of Rome, it has left me feeling physically sick. And yet the Vatican of Rome would have us forget these ever happened. God will not let us forget and God will avenge.

 

Revelation:18:20: Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

Re:18:21: And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

 

As well as the millions of God’s people tortured and murdered by the Caesars and the Popes of Rome; God’s people need to understand that the many hundreds of

thousands killed by Islam and Communism have also been at the orders of the Vatican in Rome. Both Islam, and last century Communism, were engineered and financed by the Popes of Rome for the purpose of both gaining power and killing God’s people; with Islam, the Jews also. But both Islam and later Communism after killing God’s people, refused to give Rome the power they wanted i.e. with Islam - Jerusalem, with Communism - the Orthodox Church. But both Islam and Communism have continued to kill God’s people by the thousands - the real aim of the work of Satan. This should come as no surprise to God’s people, for God tells us in Revelation 18 v 24:

 

Revelation:18:24: And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

 

The Vatican today is only the centre of the extension of the work of Satan through the occult, which started, after the great flood of Noah, at Babel through Nimrod.

This is why the Pope is gathering under his wing the religions of the world, the Vatican is only showing visibly now, what Satan has been doing all along, since Babel and Nimrod - the rise of the final Antichrist is about to take place.

 

As for her reigning over the kings of the earth, I have already spoken briefly about Islam and Communism. More well known is the Vatican’s financing and blessing of the work of Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany, and later Hitler, not to mention Mussolini and Franco, which plunged the world into the 1st and 2nd world wars, killing millions. Here is what the Pope published through Franco’s press on the day Hitler died, via the funeral oration of the Nazi chief:

 

“Adolf Hitler son of the Catholic Church, died while defending Christianity. It is therefore understandable that words cannot be found to lament over his death, when so many were found to exalt his life. Over his mortal remains stands his victorious moral figure. With the palm of the martyr, God gives Hitler the laurels of victory.”

 

 - Complete blasphemy.

 

The blood bath of the crusades also lies at her door in her desire to control Jerusalem after her dealings with Islam backfired.

 

Revelation:17:18: And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

 

Listen to what the Vatican claims is the rightful power of her Pope:

 

1).The Dictates of the Pope (Pontiff)

Dictate 2: The Roman Pontiff alone can with right be called Universal.

Dictate 8: That he alone may use the imperial insignia.

Dictate 9: That of the Pope alone all princes shall kiss the feet.

Dictate 12: That it may be permitted to him to depose emperors.

Dictate 19: That he himself may be judged by no one

Dictate 22: That the Roman church has never erred; nor will it err to all eternity.

 

2).Part of Pope Gregory VII's Letter to the Bishop of Metz,
1081 Doeberl, op. cit. iii. 40 sqq. Mirbt, No. 297:

“... who can doubt but that the priests of Christ are to be considered the fathers and masters of kings and princes and of all the faithful? ...
... For, indeed, one can see how the necks of kings and princes are bowed before the knees of priests; and how, having kissed their right hands, they believe themselves strengthened by their prayers. ...
Furthermore every Christian King, when he comes to die, seeks as a pitiful supplicant the aid of a priest, that he may escape hell's prison, may pass from the darkness into the light, and at the judgment of God may appear absolved
from the
bondage of his sins. Who, in his last hour (what layman, not to speak of priests), has ever implored the aid of an earthly king for the salvation of his soul? And what king or emperor is able, by reason of the office he holds, to rescue a Christian from the power of the devil through holy baptism, to number him among the sons of God, and to fortify him with the divine unction? Who of them can by his own words make the body and blood of our Lord, - the greatest act in the Christian religion? Or who of them possesses the power of binding and loosing in heaven and on earth? From all of these considerations it is clear how greatly the priestly office excels in power.
Who of them can ordain a single clerk in the holy Church, much less depose him for any fault? For in the orders of the Church a greater power is needed to depose than to ordain. Bishops may ordain other bishops, but can by no means depose them without the authority of the Apostolic See. Who, therefore, of even moderate understanding, can hesitate to give priests the precedence over kings? Then, if kings are to be judged by priests for their sins, by whom can they be judged with better right than by the Roman Pontiff?”

 

 

Pope Innocent III on Empire and Papacy 'The Moon and the Sun' Sicut universitatis conditor. Ep. i, 401, October 1198 P.L. ccxiv. 337. Mirbt, no. 326:

 

“The creator of the universe set up two great luminaries in the firmament of heaven; the greater light to rule the day, the lesser light to rule the night. In the same way for the firmament of the universal Church, which is spoken of as heaven, he appointed two great dignities; the greater to bear rule over souls (these being, as it were, days), the lesser to bear rule over bodies (those being, as it were, nights).These dignities are the Pontifical Authority and the royal power. Furthermore, the moon derives her light from the sun, and is in truth inferior to the sun in both size and quality, in position as well as effect. In the same way the royal power derives its dignity from the Pontifical Authority:”

 

Part of the Letter of Pope Gelasius I to Emperor Anastasius on the superiority of the Pope’s power over the emperor’s:

 

“There are two powers, august Emperor, by which this world is chiefly ruled, namely, the Sacred Authority of the priests and the royal power. Of these that of the priests is the more weighty, since they have to render an account for even the kings of men in the divine judgment. You are also aware, dear son, that while you are permitted honourably to rule over human kind, yet in things divine you bow your head humbly before the leaders of the clergy and await from their hands the means of your salvation. In the reception and proper disposition of the heavenly mysteries you recognize that you should be subordinate rather than superior to the Religious Order, and that in these matters you depend on their judgment rather than wish to force them to follow your will.”

 

Below is a declaration written by ‘Augustine’ (one of the most famous Roman Catholic Fathers) around 420 A.D. in his book ‘The city of God’:

 

“He, the Pope, is the sun, the ruler of the universe. The moon (the governments of the earth) reflect His Glory. The earth is all the people who bow down to him.”

 

- Sheer blasphemy.

 

Note: This statement has been removed from newer versions of ‘The city of God’.

 

 

The Vatican’s hidden wealth:

 

Have you ever wondered who the nations of the world are in debt to? The Vatican owns much of the world’s banking systems, businesses (corporations), real-estate etc. - under many different names. America alone at present is in debt some 7 ˝ trillion dollars. Groups such as the Masons, the illuminati, the Opus Dei, the Club of Rome, the C.F.R., the Mafia etc. are all controlled at the top by the Vatican through her Jesuits. Cults like Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Christian Science etc. have all been spawned by her to deceive God’s people. Hence we are told in God’s Word:

 

Revelation:18:3: all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Re:18:4: And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Re:18:5: For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

 

During the great tribulation Rome / the Vatican will be burnt with fire:

 

Revelation:18:9: And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,

Re:18:10: Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

Re:18:11b: And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her

 

All God’s people shall rejoice:

 

Revelation:18:20: Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

 

1b) THE GREAT WHORE, HER ORNAMENTS AND ATTIRE

 

Revelation:17:4: And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

 

A woman having a chalice or cup in her hand can be found throughout the church of Rome. She can also be found on the back of the 100 lire coin of Pope Pius the 12th (1958), Pope John the 23rd (1959) and Pope Paul the 6th (1963) minted in Vatican City.

 

To disguise her, she is said by the Vatican to be Mary, and to be symbolic of the Roman Catholic faith (Fides). But in truth she is the usurper of the name Mary, and is in fact the idolatrous ‘Queen of heaven’ - Jeremiah 7 v 18 / Mother of God (meaning God originated with her) - both names of which are used for her by the Roman Catholic church.

 

The ‘Queen of heaven' of which Jeremiah 7 v 18 speaks, is Semiramis, the mother of Nimrod and whom Nimrod married, and from whom, through Satan, all occult practises and pagan worship spread from Babel (ancient Babylon) to the rest of the world. She is known, and her son Nimrod, by many other names, for example: Ashtaroth (Ashtoreth of the Sidonians), Isis of Egypt, Diana of the Ephesians, Venus of Rome etc. = Semiramis or the Madonna, our Lady of Fatima (Mary) etc. of Roman Catholicism; hence why Mary / Queen of heaven / Mother of God (Semiramis in disguise) is worshiped and prayed to by Catholics all over the world. Nimrod (sometimes shown as a babe in her arms; note: NOT our Lord Jesus Christ) = Baal / Baalim (e.g. Judges 2 v 13, Judges 10 v 6), Molech (Moloch) (e.g. Leviticus 20 v 2, 3, 4, 5 Amos 5 v 26), Bel (Isaiah 46 v 1 Jeremiah 50 v 2, Jeremiah 51 v 44), Nebo, Sol, Tammuz (Ezekiel 8 v 14), Osins, Horus, Mercurius, Jupiter, Pan, Bacchus, etc. Satan is behind all these false gods / names, seeking to be worshipped.

 

Note: all occult / pagan names (many being the names of fallen angels) and practises are rooted, this side of the Great flood, in Nimrod (Genesis 10 v 8-10) and Semiramis from Babel. Satan has not changed nor his devils, they remain the same, and are the source of all false gods / pagan practises / names. Note also, that as Nimrod is called ‘mighty’ in Genesis 10, so is Antichrist, in Daniel 8 v 24.

 

The ‘MOTHER’ of the Roman Catholic church is no other than ‘MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE ‘MOTHER’ OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH’ (Revelation 17 v 5)

 

‘the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour’

 

The robes and gowns of the Roman Catholic Apostate church, let alone her system of Popes to Priests, were never to be found in the early church of the Acts of the Apostles; who were filled instead by The Holy Ghost. Nor should this system ever be found in the true church of Jesus Christ today. The colours of purple and scarlet are favoured and favourite colours of the Roman Catholic hierarchy. They are worn on special occasions from the Pope, to Cardinals, to Bishops, to Priests. This only reveals her true colours of which God has foretold us.

 

‘having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication’

 

The golden cup speaks of the blasphemous ‘mass’ and of her many false doctrines and corrupt practises by which she has damned millions to hell and the lake of fire.

 

 

DOCTRINES OF DEVILS

 

I). Transubstantiation and the 'mass’ (the golden cup held high)

 

God’s Holy Word teaches us, and history bears record, that our Lord Jesus Christ died once for sin; one sacrifice of Himself for us that shall never be repeated.

 

Hebrews 10 v 9-15a

Hebrews:10:9: Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. he taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.

 

(Priesthood no longer needed to make atonement for sins)

 

Hebrews:10:10: By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Heb:10:11: And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

Heb:10:12: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

Heb:10:13: From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

Heb:10:14: For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

Heb:10:15a: Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us:

 

The false doctrine of the ‘Mass’, teaches the continual or perpetual sacrificing of Christ and the lie that their wafer and wine becomes the real body and real blood of Jesus, in a magical act performed by the Priest (Transubstantiation).

Transubstantiation was not invented by the Popes of Rome, but is rather a copy of an older pagan / occult practise. The Egyptian temple priests practiced transubstantiation. They claimed to have magical powers which enabled them to change their great sun god, Osiris, into a wafer. Then in a religious ritual, the faithful would eat their god to nourish their souls. What can be found today imprinted on the Roman catholic wafer is in truth the old Egyptian trinity of Isis, Horus and Seb or

 

Note: Also found in the church of England / Do not be fooled by Latin and English names given to this wafer ‘host’ to cover up the real meaning (e.g. In His Service), nor be fooled by any added symbols e.g. the cross.

Note: the Ancient world worshiped crosses of variant shapes and sizes

handed down from Babel / Babylon (mystery Babylon the great). This is why the Bible states in Galatians 3 v 13:

 

Galations:3:13: Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

 

(Crosses were not invented by the Romans but are part of occult practises that go back to Babel / ancient Babylon).

 

Christ was made a curse for us that we might escape God’s wrath on mans rebellion to Him. Our Lord Jesus did not remain on the cross, but after having shed his blood for our sins, He was taken down from the cross and rose early the 3rd day, Alleluia.

The apostate church of Rome makes a mockery of this (on purpose) by parading a dead Christ on the accursed tree.

 

We should never reverence a cross. But worship God, pick up our cross and follow Him.

 

Luke:22:19: And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

Lu:22:20: Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

 

We partake of The Lord's Supper after examining our hearts before God (1 Corinthians 11 v 27-32), ‘IN REMEMBRANCE OF HIM’ - anything added to this doctrinally is not of God but is a doctrine of devils. Although God’s people must eat of His flesh and drink of His blood - John 6 v 50-58, this is not physically by the mouth, but spiritually by the heart, in other words receiving His words into our hearts - believing His Word and therefore obeying Him.

 

John:6:63: It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

 

I believe those going through the Great Tribulation should continue to do this ‘in remembrance of Him’. For although by this time all will have seen The Lord, so did the apostles after the resurrection before the ascension, but they had not yet received their glorified bodies.

 

DOCTRINES OF DEVILS (DOD) CONTINUED:

 

ii)DOD. - The reverence and worship of Mary (Semiramis) and the wafer / host god (pagan sunburst), plus many other relics including crosses (crucifix) and images.

 

Note: as in Babel (ancient Babylon), occultists today worship a variant of crosses (e.g. the Nazi swastika), but also use the straight cross upside down (which can be seen in the Vatican in some places) or with the cross beam broken, and pointing down, in defiant rejection of Christ’s death and resurrection.

Note also: Some of God’s people have been deceived into a pagan practise (which is widespread in the Roman Catholic church), of making the sign of the cross over things (objects) or on themselves, as if there is power in this sign for cleansing or protection. This practise is found nowhere in scripture and is in fact a doctrine of devil’s. God’s people should cease from such practises and any others like them - they very much displease The Lord.

 

iii) DOD. - Praying to saints and to Mary. The ‘Rosary’, or praying beads and the counting of prayers as found in Hinduism and Islam.

 

Note: Saints are not those ‘sainted’ so by the Roman Catholic church, but rather, all who truly love God.

 

iv). DOD. - The lie of Purgatory (paying for past sins in a place of torment before being released into heaven)

 

Note: this doctrine of Satan is aimed to blaspheme the atoning work of our Lord Jesus Christ through His blood shed for us on the cross.

 

The truth is:

 

1John:1:7b: the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

 

Satan also seeks to deceive, by making salvation of works (by our own effort / paying for our sins).

 

The truth is:

 

Ephesians:2:8: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Eph:2:9: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

 

We then do the works of God because He lives in us and we love Him. Faith without works is dead - James 2 v 26.

 

v) DOD. - The sale of ‘indulgences’, commonly regarded as a purchase of forgiveness and a permit to indulge in sin: the love of ‘Mammon’ in its worst form.

 

Note: It was the protest against this traffic, which sparked by the Holy Ghost the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century.

 

vi). DOD. - The confession of sins to a priest and the priest’s power to forgive and absolve sins instead of to God and the forgiveness of God - Matthew 9 v 2-8, Luke 7 v 47-50, Isaiah 1 v 16-20, Hebrews 7 v 22-28.

 

(The very fact that someone needs to make confession to a priest, reveals the priest (falsely) has power over them to forgive, or not forgive - blasphemy.)

 

Note: The Roman Catholic Popes / priesthood falsely claim to be the only power on earth able to forgive sins, twisting what our Lord Jesus said to the disciples in John 20 v 23. No man has power to withhold forgiveness from a repentant heart before God. God alone gives a repentant heart and true believers always rejoice in sin repented of. What Jesus speaks of in John 20 v 23 of sins retained is talking of the rebellious who will not repent and those who having walked with God, forsake Him (Hebrews 6 v 4-6, Hebrews 10 v 26-31, Matthew 5 v 13, Jude 3-7).

 

vii). DOD. - Salvation through and by the Roman Catholic church alone. This blasphemy is already seen in (vi) above. It is also tied to the Roman Catholic ‘mass’ and many other false sacraments.

 

viii). DOD. - The declaration of the church of Rome, that her traditions are equal to God’s Holy Word, if not more needful for salvation. The Roman church therefore brings the condemnation of adding to God’s word upon themselves.

 

ix).DOD. - The scapular of magical protection. The scapular was invented by Simon Stock, an English monk, in the year 1287 AD. It is a piece of brown cloth, with the picture of the virgin Mary, which is falsely claimed to contain supernatural virtue to protect from all dangers those who wear it on naked skin. It is no different to fetishes (occult charms laced with demonic power) found in many cults and false religions e.g. Islam.

 

x) DOD. - Holy water is another of these inventions; water mixed with a pinch of salt and blessed by the priest; falsely claimed to contain magical powers - witchcraft.

 

xi) DOD. - The Immaculate conception of the virgin Mary - blasphemy, ‘All have sinned and come short of the glory of God’. Only our Lord Jesus Christ never sinned ‘Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world’.

 

xii) DOD. - The infallibility of the Pope - blasphemy / taking the place of God.

One of the crowning names of the Popes ‘VICARIS FILII DEI’ = 666 in Latin numerics.

 

Note: The above title which means ‘Vicar of the Son of God’ or ‘In place of the Son of God’, the Roman Catholic church have in recent years, tried to cover up. But they continue to freely use the title ‘Vicar of Christ’ or ‘in place of Christ’ which speaks in words the same blasphemy. The Popes of Rome have had many blasphemous titles over the centuries. A well known title today is ‘The Holy Father’ - blasphemous - taking the place of God the Father. Our Lord Jesus also told us: ‘ And call no man your Father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven’ - The Vatican totally ignores God’s Word and claims to be God on earth (they at times try to deny this but Jesus said by their fruits you will known them). ‘Holy See’ or ‘His Holiness’ is another of their favourite titles, in blasphemy to God’s Holy Spirit, and in love of the praises of men. Beware of their sweet smiles and fair words. Jesus said:

 

Matthew:12:34: O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

 

Matthew:23:33: Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?           (The religious system has never changed)

 

Note: Revelation:13:11: And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

 

Although this speaks of the false prophet (Revelation 16 v 13) who shall rise during the last 7 years to strengthen Antichrist, it is also a good description of what the Popes, on the seat of Antichrist, have been doing for centuries. Pretending to be lambs (pretending to speak the truth of God often dressed in white) and yet doing the work of Satan, antichrist. Even the mitres which are often worn by the Pope and his bishops, when looking at them sideways, look like 2 horns coming out of their heads, or like the mouth of a toothless serpent / dragon (Satan’s false smile).

 

xiii) DOD. - The celibacy of the priesthood.

 

1Timothy:4:1: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

1Tm:4:2: Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

1Tm:4:3a: Forbidding to marry,

 

And so we could go on, for there are many more such abominations in the golden cup of the Great whore that sitteth upon many waters.

 

Much more could be said about the Vatican’s worldwide wealth and her religious palaces, monasteries, cathedrals etc., her ornaments decked with gold and precious stones (Revelation 17 v 4), her churches and candles and wedding bells (Revelation 18 v 23) and her sorceries, that shall be cut off in the day of her Judgment; the billions she has squandered on her lavish buildings, built by the hands of craftsmen (Revelation 18 v 22b) over many centuries, and the noise of her music (Revelation 18 v 22a), which is an abomination to God. But sufficient has been said to show who the great whore is, ‘MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT , MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH’ that sitteth upon many waters.

 

Revelation:17:15: And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

 

God’s people who know the truth, must not sit about idle watching millions go to Hell. We are called by God to pull down the strongholds of Satan and let the captives go free.

 

2Corinthians:10:4: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

2Co:10:5: Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

2Co:10:6: And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

 

Matthew:5:13: Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

M't:5:14: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

M't:5:15: Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

M't:5:16: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

 

Luke:9:23: And he said to them all, If any will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Lu:9:24: For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

Lu:9:25: For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

 

Revelation:12:11: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

 

 

 

SUMMARY OF 1) THE WORD OF GOD / TRUE CHURCH HISTORY AND

THE GREAT TRIBULATION THAT HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE

 

The Word of God teaches us that as well as there being many antichrists (general); there is a specific line of Antichrists (the centre of Satan’s work) from which the final Antichrist of Revelation 13 rises. This specific line of Antichrist comes from the king of the north  (the old Roman Empire) and has continued to our present day. This has not been a random, haphazard work of Satan, but rather a very precise, centrally placed evil work.

 

The Word of God reveals to us where this centre of Satan’s intelligence is seated, and who he is using to pull the strings - Revelation 17 and 18. This is why the early church declared that the seat of Antichrist was in Rome (the Caesars of Rome confirming this by rivers of blood). This is why men of God like John Wycliff, Tyndale, Martin Luther, Calvin, John Knox, Fox, John Bunyan,  Newton, Roger Williams, Wesley, Cotton Mather, George Whitefield (Whitfield), Charles Spurgeon, John W. Burgon, DL Moody, Billy Sunday and many others unanimously called the Roman Catholic system ‘the Mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth', and her Popes the seat of ‘Antichrist’.

 

Note: beware of false stories told about certain of these men that come from the Vatican; her tentacles have reached the churches of the Protestant reformation, plus, plus - her Jesuits have successfully infiltrated. 

 

It is only in recent times that the people of God have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication and this has been largely due to their love of this world (her wine); hence forgetting the warning of God’s Holy Word:

 

Revelation:18:3: For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Re:18:4: And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Re:18:5: For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

 

The apostle John tells us by The Holy Ghost:

 

1John:2:18: Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

 

The apostle John was the only apostle who did not die a violent death. He was well aware of the antichrist sitting in Rome, for after his attempted murder by Caesar Domition, and his subsequent banishment to the Isle of Patmos, he received from God the vision of Revelation.

 

Revelation:18:24a: And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints,

 

Revelation:18:20: Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

 

But this warning in 1 John 2 v 18 has often gone unheeded.

 

The apostle Paul reminds us in 2 Thessalonians 2 that the seat of Antichrist is being occupied by others (antichrists) until the final Antichrist arises, in God’s time, for the final Great Tribulation (last 7 years of world history). This is what he means by ‘letteth / let’ (2 Thessalonians 2 v 7), even as a proprietor would ‘let’ or rent a house or building out, which he is not using, to someone else, until he comes to use it - v 8 ‘And then shall that Wicked be revealed,’

 

2Thessalonians:2:3: 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;

2Th:2:4: 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.

2Th:2:5: Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

2Th:2:6: And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

2Th:2:7: For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

2Th:2:8: 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:

2Th:2:9: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Th:2:10: And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th:2:11: And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

2Th:2:12: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

THE FINAL ANTICHRIST IS ABOUT TO ARISE, AND HE WILL (IN ACCORDANCE TO SCRIPTURE OF WHICH THE TRUE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST HAVE ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD AND TESTIFIED) ARISE FROM THE PAPAL SEAT OF ROME; THE OLD THRONE OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE WHICH IS THE THRONE OF THE KING OF THE NORTH: FROM THE OLD GRECIAN EMPIRE OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT.

THE CONFIRMATION THAT HE IS THE FINAL ANTICHRIST IS THAT HE WILL CONFIRM THE PEACE TREATY BETWEEN ISRAEL AND ARAB NATIONS.

 

NOTE: THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT ANTICHRIST IS THE SOURCE OF THE PEACE TREATY, FOR IT IS CALLED ‘THE HOLY COVENANT' IN DANIEL 11v 28, 30. BUT ANTICHRIST WILL CONFIRM THE COVENANT. WATCH FOR THE COMING POPE TO DO THIS.

 

As I have been writing this section the Pope has died; the one who takes his place in confirming the covenant will be the final Antichrist of Revelation 13 - the beast. He may appear at first to put wrongs to right as a false front to deceive God’s people; but this will soon change - do not be deceived.

 

THIS IS ALL REVEALED IN THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET DANIEL AND THE BOOK OF REVELATION COMBINED.

 

Daniel 8: 25: and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and BY PEACE SHALL DESTROY MANY:

 

 

 

THE SHAPE OF ITALY

 

I believe God has also given us geographical evidence of where the seat of Antichrist is and therefore where he will arise from.

 

Note: Many Popes and several Caesars were not Italian but were rather from elsewhere in Europe. Therefore the final Antichrist need not be Italian, but will be from the old Roman Empire. This gives us understanding why the Antichrist will later burn Rome / the Vatican, in accordance with God’s will (Revelation 17 v 16-18), after he has set up his headquarters at Jerusalem and placed his own image in God’s temple (the abomination of desolation). There will no doubt be a power struggle between Antichrist (with his new headquarters at Jerusalem) and the Vatican in Rome, the old seat of power, after the time when Antichrist breaks the peace treaty with Israel.

 

When we look at the image of Daniel chapter 2, the first vision given by God to Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar, we understand that out of the brass thigh, the king of the North (the 2nd thigh representing the king of the south), comes the lower leg (knee, calf, shin and foot), which speaks of the rise of Antichrist.

There is one nation on earth that is well known (in England at least) for being called the ‘BOOT’ and this is the nation of Italy. Looking at the map of Italy from a distance, it is easy to see why it is called ‘The boot of Italy’. With a closer inspection a number of significant features stand out:

 

1). A distinct calf muscle shaped land mass can be seen facing into the ‘Adriatic sea’. The knee meeting the land mass of Europe on the opposite side higher up, or where old cavaliers had their large open ended boots come up to.

 

2). The foot looks very much claw like, unlike a human foot which is pleasant to look at. This reminds me of Daniel 7 v7 and 19:

 

Daniel:7:19: 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;

 

Note: Understand that 10 kings will arise as well as antichrist for the final world empire, and these 10 kings do not arise from Italy, but speak of the rest of the world. Therefore we should not expect to see 5 or 10 toes - Daniel 2 v 41, nail / claws - Daniel 7 v 19, coming off the land mass of Italy. Note that Antichrist uproots 3 kings (Daniel 7 v 8, 24).

 

3). When you look at this leg and foot of Italy, there are 3 larger distinct land masses that jut out, 2 being on the foot and the 3rd pointing into the Adriatic sea. Daniel 7 v 8 and 24 tells us that Antichrist will pluck up / subdue 3 of the 10 kings. We know from Daniel chapter 8 verse 9, the geographical area of these 3 kings which Antichrist conquers; the south, the east and ‘toward the pleasant land' = the Middle East (Arab nations). These are the 3 general areas to which the 3 claws of Italy point.

 

1). The Large toe points towards Africa - where the first king of the South had his strong hold - Daniel 11 v 8.

2). The claw-like heel points in the direction of the Middle East / Israel.

3). The smaller (Achilles tendon) claw / point (which can be found on certain animals like the front legs of some wolves, wild boar, he goats; certain birds e.g. some cocks etc.), points towards the East.

 

Daniel:8:9: And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.

 

Note: Daniel 11 v 25-28 describes part of Antichrists conquests during the first half of the last 7 years against the king of the south (Muslim nations including the top of Africa). This will encourage Israel to believe he is for them, having already confirmed the peace treaty. But later he will turn and destroy two thirds of Israel’s population (Zechariah 13 v 8) - this will happen when he sets up the abomination (Matthew 24 v 15) half way through the 7 years.

 

I believe that just as God has placed Israel centrally as you look at the world as a whole(being the land mass that joins the continent of Africa to the Middle East, Asia, Russia and Europe, from where He will Reign for a thousand years), so also God has shown his people geographically where the seat of Antichrist is, our greatest enemy, Revelation 18 v 20-24.

 

Revelation:18:20: Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

 

The Antichrist who burns her with fire - Revelation 17 v 16-18 (note: through scripture you see how God uses the enemy to destroy itself e.g. 1 Samuel 14 v 18-20, 2 Chronicles 20 v 20-24), will be destroyed himself by our Lord Jesus at the battle of Armageddon, Alleluia!

 

 

 

 

A) THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST / ANTICHRIST 666   B) HIS MARK

 

 

A) THE NUMBER 666:

 

It has been well established for many centuries by men of God that the Popes of Rome and the Roman Church are seared with the number 666. This was common knowledge in the day of Wycliffe and well before; it is only in our latter generation that as a whole, the Church of Jesus Christ has been put to sleep on the subject.

God has given His people ample warning of who the Antichrist would be and where he would come from, by the number 666; as we will see in a moment.

 

It may be argued by some who seek to cast doubt on God’s Word, that the number 666 can not be used as proof for the rise of Antichrist, as other names could be manipulated to make 666. This is a false argument for at least 2 reasons. Firstly the number 666 is a final proof of many proofs given in scripture of who the Antichrist is and where he will come from; the Popes of Rome alone fulfilling prophecy regarding this. Secondly the Word of God states clearly in Revelation 13 v 18, that the wise will understand who Antichrist is by this God given hallmark of 666. The reverse of this is that the foolish will not understand, and no doubt laugh at and ignore this proof. Those who do so, do so to their own peril, for God has given them warning.

Be aware also that Satan is able to manipulate names / invent names which add up to 666 for the purpose of deceiving God’s people to look in another direction; for he has full knowledge that the Word of God reveals this of his own evil system. Do not be deceived by this but understand that there are many antichrists under ‘The Antichrist’ and only the Papal seat of Rome fulfils all prophecy concerning the rise of the final Antichrist.

 

The number 666 applies to the line of Antichrist (the Popes of Rome) because they occupy the seat of Antichrist until he rises (2Thessalonians 2 v 7-8); one man (Pope) occupying his seat in succession until he comes. If this was not so, Revelation 13 v 18 could only be understood by a few people (in comparison to the church of God over the last 2000 years) in the closing few years of world history, when in fact the final Antichrist / Beast of Revelation 13 would be most obvious to all God’s people because of what he does and his mark etc.

 

It is clear to anyone who has the Spirit of God that Revelation 13 v 18 is applied to the single line of Antichrists; all true church history bears Witness to this Fact as men of God down through the centuries have stated this categorically.      

                                    ______________________________________

 

 

The reason why the number 666 for the name of Antichrist is obtainable by letters; is because God has written into the Hebrew, Greek and Latin languages a numeric value for their alphabets. These numeric values can be found for example in the Encyclopaedia Britannica under - Languages of the world.

 

Following is a table showing Hebrew and Greek numerics; Latin numerics will follow later:

 

 

The following pages demonstrate, using language numerics, the line of Antichrist. Each of these has been known for many years, some over 1600 years.

 

 

1). The book of Daniel and Revelation reveal that Antichrist will come out of the old Roman Empire:

2). The Popes of Rome sit upon this old seat of Roman power:

          666

 

Note: ‘Sigma’ is not used in modern Greek but is found in the Greek New Testament e.g. Revelation 13 v 18, to give the value 666.

 

The official language of the Pope is ‘Latin’, church documents are normally published first in Latin and then into other languages.

A  =     1 - Alpha

        666

 

3). The names of blasphemy which the Popes of Rome claim for themselves e.g. The Holy Father, The Holy see, His Holiness, Vicar of Christ etc.; can be summed up in the old crowning Latin title of the Popes - Vicarius Filii Dei - crowned with the triple tiara (triple crown used by the Vatican to ordain her blasphemous Pope):

 

VICARIUS  FILII  DEI = In place of the Son of God

                       

VICARIUS = substituting for, or ‘In place of’ (vicar)

FILII = Son

DEI = God

 

This Latin title for which the Popes of Rome claim absolute authority = 666.

What the Vatican means by this title can be read in their own forgery of ‘The Donation of Constantine’ which more than 10 Popes used, to try and prove they had been given authority over the Roman Empire (and the World) by Constantine (Daniel 11 v 21).

 

‘The Donation of Constantine’:

“As the Blessed Peter is seen to have been constituted vicar of the Son of God on the earth, so the Pontiffs who are the representatives of that same chief of the apostles, should obtain from us and our empire the power of a supremacy greater than the clemency of our earthly imperial serenity is seen to have conceded to it,
choosing that same chief of the apostles and his vicars to be our constant intercessors with God. And to the extent of our earthly Imperial power, we have decreed that his holy Roman Church shall be honoured with veneration, and that more than our empire and earthly throne the most sacred seat of the Blessed Peter shall be gloriously exalted, we giving to it power, and dignity of glory, and vigour, and honour imperial. And we ordain and decree that he shall have the supremacy as well over the four principal seats, Alexandria, Antioch, Jerusalem, and Constantinople, as also over all the churches of God in the whole earth. And the Pontiff, who at the time shall be at the head of the holy Roman Church itself, shall be more exalted than, and chief over, all the priests of the whole world, and according to his judgment everything which is provided for the service of God and for the stability of the faith of Christians is to be administered.”

 

It is amazing that anyone ever believed such rhetoric and yet millions today are deceived by the Pope, whose end is destruction. Many millions of God’s people over the centuries, have been tortured and put to death by the (infallible!!) Popes of Rome. The Antichrist will do likewise.

Revelation:13:18: Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

 

Revelation:17:12: 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.

Re:17:13: These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

 

It is useful to note that the ‘Latin’ name for King ‘REX’ = 10. It is Antichrist of the old Roman / Latin Kingdom, to whom the 10 kings will give their power. Antichrist being the last and final king of the 7 kings of Revelation 17 v 10.

 

 

 

B) HIS MARK

 

Revelation:13:16: And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

Re:13:17: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

 

The mark of the beast which will be inserted into the right hand or forehead to give licence to buy or sell is a chip of electronic information. The reason why we know this is quite simple; specialized electronic chips have already been produced for this exact purpose and are being implanted even as I write.

 

The mark of the beast - ‘Miniaturized Implantation Identification Technology’

 

There are 3 names at present by which this implantable identification device is known:

 

1). the ‘VeriChip’

2). the ‘DigitalAngel’

3). the ‘ThermoLife’

 

These are the names which have been given thus far by the companies promoting this Mark of the Devil e.g. the ‘VeriChip Corporation’; my comments are below:

 

1). The ‘VeriChip’ is the Very Chip we have been Warned about in God’s Holy Word that will herald the rise of Antichrist.

 

2). The ‘DigitalAngel’ is the very Angel of Light that will deceive to damnation all who receive the Mark.

  

2Corinthians:11:14: And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

 

3). The ‘ThermoLife’ means ‘forever in the Lake of Fire’.

 

This ‘miniaturized, implantable radio frequency identification device’ is about the size of a grain of rice; and is being advertised under a number of subtle deceptions such as ‘Security’. Satan’s real aim is not denied though; the following is a quote from the ‘VeriChip Corporation’ brochure entitled ‘Financial Identification’:

 

“In the financial arena, the company sees enormous, untapped potential for   VeriChip as a personal verification technology that could help to curb identity theft and prevent fraudulent technology access to banking (especially via ATMs) and credit card accounts. VeriChip’s tamper-proof, personal verification technology would provide banking and credit card customers with the added protection of knowing their accounts could not be accessed unless they themselves initiated - and were physically present during - the transaction.”

 

(In other words: No person present with an implanted Micro-Chip - no transaction. Person present with implanted ‘VeriChip’- secure straight forward transaction.)

 

Their internet webpage titled ‘Applied Digital’ ‘VeriChip Corporation’ has a slogan stating: ‘The ChipMobile is on the Move! Watch for the Chip Mobile coming to your town!’ - shown together with a customized transportation vehicle carrying equipment for Chip insertion into the forehead or right hand; Marked with the VeriChip logo.  

 

The Judgment of God for receiving the mark of the beast is eternal damnation.

 

Revelation:14:9: And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

Re:14:10: The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Re:14:11: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

 

Note Matthew 5 v 30: ‘And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
