    Who is the Antichrist?

    Shocking Facts about a Misunderstood
    Prophecy, and now the real truth…



    Introduction
    An internet search today on “who is the antichrist” will reveal anything
    from the star of the Baywatch TV series to the president of the USA.
    God’s Word does not instruct us to make ridiculous wild guesses or any
    guesses for that matter as to what we think Bible prophecy says, in
    fact we are specifically told in 2 Peter 1:20 “…that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.” One good key to understanding Bible prophecy is laid out in the principle of the following verse: Isaiah 28:10 “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

    In this document we are going to do something totally different to the
    majority. We are going to discover the truth about who is the
    antichrist using the Word of God and support it with many sound
    historical quotes. None of what we cover will be speculation and none
    will be private interpretation. When you finally realize how to
    understand the symbols of Prophecy and how to comprehend it, you will
    be surprised how simply it comes together.

    The contents of this document contain some of my own writings as well as many excerpts
    from the works and writings of the late Christian Edwardson. He is a
    much respected author with his work well supported by scripture and
    historical quotes for credibility. All the sections in “gray” are his writings.

    The Basic prophetic timeline

    Understanding how Daniel and Revelation work together is a crucial part of
    understanding Bible prophecy and who is the antichrist, and in the
    following studies you will see how Daniel helps unlock the book of
    Revelation. It would be advisable to read Daniel 2 before beginning as
    this gives the basic prophetic time line from Babylon to the second
    coming of Christ. In the book of Daniel, the principle of repetition
    and enlargement is used. Daniel 2 gives the whole basic prophetic
    time line of history in brief and then each chapter enlarges with more
    detail and information etc. Unlocking Daniel’s symbols makes the
    prophecies of Revelation’s come clear.

    In Daniel 2, we find a king that dreamed of world events that spanned over 2,500 years. Those
    events have come to pass with such precision that only the hand of God
    could have been involved. It is a prophecy that’s almost been totally
    fulfilled. Daniel 2:1 says: “In the second year of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; and his spirit was so troubled that his sleep left him.

    This was the king who ruled the great Babylonian Empire 600 years before
    Christ and who built the Hanging Gardens which is one of the Seven
    Wonders of the World. Nebuchadnezzar had a dream which seemed of great
    significance, but when he awoke, he could not remember what he had
    dreamt. So he called his wise men who claimed to see into the future
    and asked them to tell what he had dreamt. When they admitted that they
    could not, Nebuchadnezzar condemned them to death.

    Young Daniel, though a prisoner in Babylon, was counted among the “wise men”
    for his gifted intelligence and understanding. When the king’s captain
    came to execute Daniel, he asked for time to pray for God to reveal the
    dream which of course God did. Then Daniel taking no credit to himself,
    went before Nebuchadnezzar and told the king that no mortal man could
    reveal the dream. “But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and He has revealed ... what will be in the latter days.” Daniel 2:28. The dream starts with Nebuchadnezzar and marches through history to God’s final kingdom.

    So Daniel told the king what he had dreamed: “You,
    O king, were watching: and behold, a great image! This image’s head was
    of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of
    bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.
    You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the
    image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the
    iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed
    together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the
    wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the
    stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the
    whole earth.
    ” Daniel 2:31-35.

    The King was excited. “That’s exactly what I saw! But Daniel, what does it mean?” Daniel continued: “You, O King ... are this head of GOLD.” Daniel 2:37-38.
    The Babylonian Empire of Nebuchadnezzar (which made more lavish use of
    gold than any kingdom since) was secure as the dominant world power
    from 605 B.C. to 538 B.C., but he was to be overthrown by a kingdom represented in Daniel 2:32 as “the breast and arms of SILVER.

    In Daniel 5:28, the next world ruling power is named, the joint empire
    of the Medes and the Persians. Again a fitting symbol, the two arms
    joined at the chest to show two kingdoms being the Medes and Persians.
    They ruled the world for two centuries, from 538 B.C. to 331 B.C., but
    they also were overthrown by a third kingdom.

    This third kingdom, depicted in verse 32 as the “belly and thighs of BRONZE,
    was the Greek Empire of Alexander the Great which was taken over buy
    his four Generals after he died. And what did Alexander’s men wear into
    battle? Bronze - Bronze breastplates, bronze helmets, bronze shields,
    bronze swords. Once again, God chose a fitting symbol to describe the
    kingdom that would rule the world from 331 B.C. to 168 B.C.

    But history doesn’t end with this third kingdom. Greece did not rule the
    world forever, for there was a fourth metal after the gold of Babylon,
    and the silver of the Medes and Persians, and the bronze of Greece. The
    next kingdom is represented by IRON. Daniel 2:40 says, “The fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron.” The iron monarchy of Rome was the last world kingdom, which in 168 B.C. overthrew the
    Greeks. Just as legs form the longest part of the body, Rome had the longest reign of any other of
    the world powers. For more than 500 years, half a millennium, Rome was invincible. But what did the Bible predict would happen next? Daniel 2:41-43 says, “Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom.

    History confirms that this seemingly unconquerable Roman Empire crumbled from
    within and without. From within wealth poured into Rome through taxes
    collected from all over the world and the simple Roman life was
    replaced with luxury and pomp. The political world brewed with
    corruption, crime infiltrated the streets, the work ethic was lost,
    sexual immorality was rampant. And as the mighty Roman Empire weakened
    from within, Rome was attacked from without and divided into ten
    smaller kingdoms.

    Today we are living right down in the toenails of history! Every part of this
    prophecy has come to pass except one. Daniel told the king in verses 34
    and 44, “You watched while a STONE was cut out without hands, which
    struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in
    pieces. ... The God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never
    be destroyed. ... It shall break in pieces and consume all these
    kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.
    ” That Rock cut out without hands symbolizes Jesus Christ who will come to establish His everlasting kingdom.

    God through the prophet Daniel foretold the break up of the Roman Empire
    into ten toes of the Image, representing the ten kingdoms into which
    Rome was divided when barbarian tribes carved up the empire.
    The Ten Barbarian tribes and there modern day names
    England Italy Destroyed
    Germany Portugal Destroyed
    Switzerland Spain Destroyed
    France
    These last three have no modern names for they originally took over parts of the Roman Empire but were eventually destroyed, “plucked up by the roots
    as Daniel 7:8, 20, and 24 foretold. Daniel 2:41-43 says, ten toes, ten
    kingdoms, and just as IRON and CLAY won’t mix together, so the ten
    kingdoms will not be joined. No matter how many battles are fought, no
    matter how many Hitler’s or Napoleons or Charlemagne’s seek to conquer,
    the Bible says the world will never be united under one ruler again.

    Only one kingdom is left to be established. Soon Jesus Christ, the Rock of
    Ages, who paid a remarkable visit to this planet 2000 years ago, is
    going to pay us another visit. Jesus is going to make quite an entrance
    the second time. The heavens will rumble with a great shout as the
    trumpet blasts and angels sing. Then Jesus and the angelic host will
    swoop down in a cloud of glory to gather all His faithful ones! Article continues
