THE ANTICHRIST AND WHERE HE WILL COME FROM
The He Goat of Daniel 8 is a symbol of Alexander "the Great" and his empire; which
as we know; in its brief zenith, stretched from Macedon and Greece across the Middle East, into western India and included
the former kingdoms once owned by Assyria, Baylon, Persia, Egypt, and Bactria. This He Goat had a HORN between his eyes. This
Represented Alexander. Then the horn was suddenly BROKEN OFF. This represented his sudden death at the height of his Power.
Then in his place the empire was divided as know between his four leading generals who scurried to divide up the civilized
world between them. Without going into great detail on each general (Cassander, Seleucus, Lysimachus, and Ptolemy) we see
that a LITTLE HORN in Daniel 8:9 grew off of one of the four horns. It in fact grew off of the horn of the Seleucid Emperors,
who controlled the Middle East, Israel Old Assyria (the area around Moswul Iraq, Babylon ( most of the nation of Iraq, Persia
(modern Iran) and Bactria (modern Afghanistan). This little horn would be a FORE-TYPE of the AntiChrist, a Syrian named Antiochus
Epiphanes. He would blaspheme the LORD GOD (YHWH) and sacrifice a PIG in the Temple at Jerusalem and placed a Statue of the
False pagan god Zeus into the Holy of Holies of the Temple of YHWH. He then tried to eradicate all Jews would not become pagans,
and abandon the Law of Moses. SO SINCE this blasaphemer isd the FORE RUNNER...and ANTICHRIST himself is a little horn in Daniel
7:8, we see that AntiChrist will come from somewhere within the borders of the Old Seleucid Syrian Empire. ( Thats just for
starters, come back to this site in a few days for more info that narrows the focus on where the man of sin will come from.
JESUS IS LORD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.
The Antichrist is known as the ASSYRIAN. This is the Empire which preceded Babylon. But it was conquered
and assimilated by Babylon BEFORE the capture of Judah by Nebuchadnezzar. The Assyrian people still exist in Iraq. Mosul,
in Northern Iraq is at the ruins of Nineveh.
The final man of sin will be an Assyrian as all the Prophets foretell in the Old Testament. This is also part of the
Old Seleucid Empire after Alexander's death.
This is also part of the Eastern Roman Empire, the Left Foot, so to speak of the IMAGE envisioned by Nebuchadnezzar...the
Empire now controlled by Muslim states.
Antichrist's Coming Empire
2:19-45. (scope of time=606 BC to ? AD.
The Head of this image was fine gold, the breast and arms of silver, the belly
and thighs of brass, legs of iron, and feet part of iron and part of clay. The golden Head was King Nebuchadnezzar with his
Babylonian Empire.It would fall to an INFERIOR Kingdom, symbolized by decreasing values of the precious metals: the Medes
and the Persians. The Persians are now IRAN. This fell to the amorphous empire of Alexander 'the great'. Daniel does not at
this point delineate into the four way partition of Alexander's empire after his death, but he does prophesy it later in DN
8:22. He moves along here to the legs of iron, symbolizing both the fact of ROME'S strength, and the fact that Rome would
be renowned for their state of the art iron weaponry, with which they conquered the Mediterranean Region and the Fertile Crescent.
NOW' HERE IS WHERE THE PARADIGM SHIFT MUST OCCUR IN MUCH OF TODAY'S PROPHECY TEACHING. Note that the legs are TWO. This is
because the Roman Empire was separated into TWO Empires, as you probably know. The Western Empire, out of Rome, and Mostly
LATIN, fell officially in 476 AD. The Eastern Empire, out of Constantinople, and mostly GREEK, limped along until 1453 AD
when it was conquered by the Turkish Sultan Mehmet. These legs obviously each had FEET with FIVE TOES on each foot. But for
some reason, many Bible Prophecy teachers act as if all ten toes were on the right foot. NO. There are five on each. Five
for kingdoms within the Old region of the Western Empire and FIVE ON THE LEFT FOOT symbolizing KINGDOMS WITHIN the regions
of the Old Eastern Empire, THE REGIONS NOW CONTROLLED 100% BY ISLAM. BOTH figure prominently in End Time Prophetic teaching,
and one cannot be ignored for the other. The endtime empire of Antichrist will arise from a bizarre union of ISLAM and the
EUROPEAN UNION; both of which stand against BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANITY.
