It must therefore refer to some "future ruler" of Babylon when Babylon shall be rebuilt, as it is to be. Verses 12 to 14 evidently refer to Satan, and are descriptive of him before his fall, but as he is to incarnate himself in the Antichrist, who is to be a future King of Babylon, it explains the source of the pride and presumption of Antichrist, which will lead to his downfall, as it did to Satan's. In the chapter on "The Gentiles" we described how Daniel saw come up among the "Ten Horns" on the head of the Fourth Wild Beast a "Little Horn," and that this "Little Horn" had "eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.
Daniel was told that this "Little Horn" was a king that should arise, and that he would be a "person" of remarkable intelligence and great oratorical powers, having a "mouth speaking great things.
Later Daniel had a vision of a Ram and a He Goat contesting for supremacy. The He Goat had a "notable horn" between his eyes. This "Great Horn" was broken, and in its place "four notable horns" sprang up, and out of one of them sprang forth a "Little Horn". When Daniel asked for the meaning of the vision he was told that the Ram stood for the Medo-Persian Kingdom, and the He Goat for the Grecian, and that the "Four Horns" that came up in the place of the "Great Horn" stood for "Four Kings" and that the "Little Horn" that came up on one of the "Four Horns" stood for a King of "Fierce Countenance," who in the "latter time" of their kingdom the Four Worldwide Kingdoms and not the four Kingdoms into which the Grecian Empire was divided, for the "time" will be that when the "transgressors are come to the full" , shall stand up.
Neither was Antiochus Epiphanes "broken without hand;" he died a natural death at Tabae in B.
But the Antichrist is to be "broken without hand. Two "good" men, Enoch and Elijah, were translated to Heaven "without dying," and two "bad" men, spoken of officially as the Beast and the False Prophet, shall be cast into the Lake of Fire "without dying. Those who claim that the "Little Horn" of Dan.
This is seen in the character of the "Beast" John saw come up out of the sea. The fact that the "body" of the Beast was like a Leopard Greece reveals the fact that the preponderating feature of the revived Roman Empire will be Grecian, and that therefore the "Ten Federated Kingdoms" will include the Four Kingdoms into which the Grecian Empire was divided, viz. Those who claim that the "Little Horn" that came up on one of the "Four Horns" of the He Goat was fulfilled in Antiochus Epiphanes who was a king of Syria overlook the fact that while Antiochus Epiphanes devastated Palestine and caused an "idol altar" to be erected on the altar of the Temple, on which he offered swine's flesh, which was an abomination to the Jews, he does not fulfill the description of the "Little Horn" of the He Goat.
He does not compare with him for Satanic malice. The "Abomination of Desolation" that Daniel refers to Dan. While it was revealed to Daniel that the "Little Horn," or Antichrist, should come out of one of the "Four Horns" that took the place of the "Great Horn" on the head of the He Goat, he needed further light as to which one. That Daniel might know in which one of these Four Kingdoms the "Little Horn," or Antichrist, should arise, 15 years after his vision of the "Ram and He Goat" the Lord gave him a third vision, that of two kings, the "King of the North" and the "King of the South.
That the "King of the North" spoken of in Dan. The intervening verses, the 32d to the 35th inclusive, fill in the gap between the time of Antiochus Epiphanes and the appearance of the Antichrist. There is no intimation that Antiochus Epiphanes is even to be regarded as a "type" of Antichrist. They are distinct historical personages, each dealt with in his own place, and though they resemble each other in some respects, yet they must not be confounded with each other.
In the thought of Jehovah Jerusalem is at once the geographic and moral centre of the earth. We are to understand therefore by the "King of the North" the King of Syria, which also included Assyria. This fixes the locality from which the Antichrist shall come, for we read in Isa.

And we read in Isa. The context shows that this prophecy is connected with the restoration of Israel to their own land and the time of the downfall of Antichrist. The Antichrist, therefore, in all probability will be a Syrian Jew, for it is not likely that the Jews will accept as their Messiah one who is not a Jew, unless the claimant by false pretence makes them believe he is one. This, however, does not prevent the Antichrist being a Roman citizen, and a king of the revived Roman Empire, for Saul of Tarsus was both a Jew and a Roman citizen. The name is used but twice in the Scripture.
In 1 Tim. How did He become "manifest in the flesh"? By being born of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit. This is no new view for it has been held by many of God's spiritually minded children since the days of the Apostle John, and there is some warrant for it in the Scriptures. In Gen.
The context shows that this prophecy is connected with the restoration of Israel to their own land and the time of the downfall of Antichrist. Shoebat and Richardson have gotten one thing right: the Muslim world is going to suffer a devastating fate in the end times, but not at the end of the Tribulation as a result of a conflict between armies commanded by a Muslim Antichrist and Jesus. The weakest argument Goodman attempts to use is the one he bases on Revelation One of their projects was the Septuagint, the translation of the Hebrew Old Testament scrolls into Greek.

When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of IT. Was he a child of Satan by some woman, or was he simply indwelt by Satan? Here we must let the Scriptures speak for themselves. He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon; for he it was that should betray Him, being one of the Twelve. This is the only place in the Scriptures where the word "diabolus" is applied to a human being, and it implies an incarnation. That is they are not merely "obsessed" or controlled by the Devil, the Devil has incarnated himself in them, and for the time being, to all practical purposes, they are the very Devil himself.
Turning to Rev. Acts Of no other person is it said anywhere in the Scriptures that he went "to his own place.
Now there are four things said of him. First, he "WAS.
somarradi.ga The question then arises, when was "Antichrist" on the earth before? If Judas and Antichrist are one and the same the enigma is solved. In other words when we find in prophecy "Three Symbolic Personages" that come upon the stage of action at the same time, occupy the same territory, exhibit the same character, do the same work, exist the same length of time, and meet the same fate, they must symbolize the SAME THING.
In comparing these two "BEASTS" we find that they both come up out of the sea the nations , and that they are utterly unlike any beast we have ever heard of. It now remains to analyze the "Beast" that John saw come up out of the sea, and try to discover the meaning of its various members.
While it was divided in A. In this sense the Roman Empire in its influence has never ceased to exist. We are now to consider it in its last stage as outlined in John's "Beast. In the two descriptions of John's Beast as given above it is very important to see that the "Beast" has a "Dual" meaning.
Again we must distinguish between the body of the "Beast" and its heads and horns.
The "Beast" that comes up out of the sea Chap. This implies that the "Beast" of Rev. During the wars preceding the rise of Antichrist the nations that will then be found in the geographical limits of the Old Roman Empire will form an "Alliance" for mutual protection. No doubt the "Papal Church" will play a prominent part in those proceedings. She will be rewarded by restoration to political power, and this union of Church and State, in which the Church will have control, is shown by the WOMAN riding the Beast, thus dominating it.
While we are told in Rev. Who are meant by the first "Five Kings" that had fallen we do not know. Which one is not stated. In Rev. If this happens at the "Middle of the Week," at the time the Dragon is cast out of Heaven, it will account for the great change that takes place in the Antichrist, for before receiving his "deadly wound" he will be sweet and lovable, but after his resurrection or recovery he becomes Devilish, the result of the Dragon incarnating himself in him.
He will be a "composite" man. One who embraces in his character the abilities and powers of Nebuchadnezzar, Xerxes, Alexander the Great and Caesar Augustus. Meanwhile a program is already going on at the tower in the U. S The economic fight between China and U.
S is part of the ongoing war. Ido not subscribe to your translation of Daniels dream.
The kingdoms yet to but has already come to pass and is no longer a dominating world power The five fallen world powers were Egyptian Assyrian Babylonian Medo-Persian Greek Roman Empire Since we know that Egept and Assyria were no longer world powers of the era Babylon was defacto that world power at the time of Daniels dream therefore The Medo-Persian, the Greek and The Roman Empire is the first three beast which is prophesy already fulfilled due to these ancient gentile world powers have not existed for centuries.
The fourth beast is prophesy still to come to pass which is the Revived Roman Empire and the Antichrist will be the last easier of that Global world power. Germany and France could be a part of that revived Roman empire but that is yet to be seen.
