Mystery Babylon The Antichrist What's Next Endtime Prophecy
Like Hitler the antichrist will "have a mouth that will speak very great things, and his look will be more imposing than his fellows." He will think to change times and laws and is referred to as "The King of fierce countenance" who shall "have an understanding of dark sentences." Daniel 7:20, 25; 8:23 Because of this man all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, will be forced to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, so that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Rev 13:16-17 (Video and text links at bottom of page)
The Future Fuhrer
Fuhrer means "leader" and it is one of the better-known titles of Adolf Hitler, the infamous dictator of Nazi Germany. The mere mention of his title quickly conjures up bad memories. It is permanently tied to the evil leader who gave us the Third Reich, the Gestapo, the Storm Troopers, the Hitler Youth, the Society of German Maidens and other despicable groups. It spurs images of World War II: the arming of 70 million troops worldwide, the death of about 17 million troops, the death of about 20 million Soviet citizens, and so many more from other nations; no one really knows how many perished. Fuhrer or "leader" also reminds people of the swastika, goose-steping German troops, concentration camps, death camps, the ovens of Auschwitz, the bombing of England, the ruins of Europe, famine, fire, pestilence and large national debts. It reminds people of the depraved man who touched off the world's darkest hour. But the wicked fuhrer of WW II was just a forewarning of the final fuhrer, and the disaster the first fuhrer caused will pale in comparison to what the Bible says the final fuhrer will bring in. John said, "And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer" (Revelation 6:2). The bow was a weapon of war and a symbol of military power in John's day. The antichrist will' appear with a bow in his hand, but he will have no arrows. Daniel said, "by peace shall [he] destroy many" (Daniel 8:25).
What will the World Be Like When the Antichrist Appears?
When addressing this, the Apostle Paul used the phrase "perilous times" (2 Timothy 3:1). "Perilous times" includes war, and one of the signs of the last days that Jesus talked about is "wars and rumors of wars" (Matthew 24:6). While the antichrist is negotiating peace and consolidating his power, God will release a second horse and rider. John said, "there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword" (Revelation 6:4). The second rider will bring war to the earth. "Perilous times" also includes "economic disaster." While the antichrist is boasting about having solutions to the world's problems, God will release a third horse and rider. John said, "I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine" (Revelation 6:5, 6). While the third rider will bring economic collapse to the world, the fourth rider will bring death to millions. John said, "I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth" (Revelation 6:8).
The Antichrist's Characteristics:
I. He will be possessed of extraordinary intelligence. In Daniel 7:20 he is represented as "A horn that had eyes." It is a double symbol. The "horn" prefigures strength; "eyes" speak of intelligence. Again, in Daniel 8:23 he is referred to as "A King of fierce countenance." who shall "understand dark sentences." That which baffles others shall be simple to him. The Hebrew word here translated "dark sentences" is the same as the one rendered "hard questions". It indicates that the Antichrist will be master of all the secrets of occult science. This will be one of his most alluring attractions. His master mind will captivate the educated world. His marvelous store of knowledge, his acquaintance with the secrets of nature, his superhuman powers of perception, will stamp him as an intellectual genius of the first magnitude.
II. In Daniel 7:20 we are told that he has "a mouth that spake very great things." He will have a mouth speaking very great things. He will have a perfect command and flow of language. His oratory will not only gain attention but command respect. Revelation 13:2 declares that his mouth is "as the mouth of a lion" which is a symbolic expression telling of the majesty and awe producing effects of his voice. The voice of the lion excels that of any other beast. So the Antichrist will out rival orators ancient and modern.
III. He will emerge from obscurity, but by dint of his diplomatic skill he will win the admiration and compel the cooperation of the political world. In the early stages of his career he appears as "a little horn" (or power), but it is not long before he climbs the ladder of fame, and by means of brilliant statesmanship, ascends its topmost rung. Like the majority of politicians, he will not scruple to employ questionable methods; in fact it will be by diplomatic chicanery and intrigue that he will win his early successes. Daniel 11:21 tells us that at first they will not give to him the honor of the kingdom, but "he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries." Once he gains the ascendancy none will dare to challenge his authority.
IV. "And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand" (Dan. 8:25). Under his regime everything will be nationalized, and none will be able to buy or sell without his permission (Rev. 13:17). All commerce will be under his personal control, and this will be used for his own aggrandizement. The wealth of the world will be at his disposal. There are several scriptures which call attention to this. In Daniel 11:38 we are told, "But in his estate shall he honor the god of forces (Satan): and a god whom his fathers knew not shall be honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things." Even plainer is Daniel 11:43, "But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt." In the last verse of Daniel 11 mention is made of his "palace." Ezekiel. 28:4, 5 speaks of him thus, "With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: By thy great wisdom and by thy traffic hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches."
V. He will be endowed with the most extraordinary powers, so that "he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people" (Dan. 8:24). Before his exploits the fame of Alexander and Napoleon will be forgotten. None will be able to stand before him. He will go "forth conquering and to conquer" (Rev. 6:2). He will sweep everything before him so that the world will exclaim, "Who is like unto the Beast? who is able to make war with him?" (Rev. 13:4). His military exploits will not be confined to a corner, but carried out on a vast scale. He is spoken of as the man who will "shake kingdoms" and "make the earth to tremble" (Isa. 14:16).
VI. He will weld together opposing forces. He will unify conflicting agencies. Under the compelling power of his skill the world Powers will be united. The dream of a League of Nations will then be realized. A marvelous symbolic picture of this is given us in Revelation 13:1,2: "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. 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." Here we find the forces of the Roman, the Grecian, the Medo-Persian, and the Babylonian empires coalesced. He will be the personal embodiment of the world’s political authority in its final form. So completely will the world be swayed by the hypnotic spell cast over it by the Beast that the ten kings of the Roman empire in its ultimate form shall "give their kingdoms unto him" (Rev. 17:17). He will be the last great Caesar.
VII. He will proclaim himself God, demanding that Divine honors should be rendered to him and sitting in the Temple shall show himself forth that he is God (2 Thess. 2:4). Such wonders will he perform, such prodigious marvels will he work, the very elect would be deceived by him did not God directly protect them. The Man of Sin will combine in himself all the varied genius of the human race, and what is more, he will be invested with all the wisdom and power of Satan. He will be a master of science, acquainted with all of nature’s forces, compelling her to give up for him her long held secrets. "In this master-piece of Satan," says one, "will be concentrated intellectual greatness, sovereign power and human glory, combined with every species of iniquity, pride, tyranny, willfulness, deceit, and blasphemy." "All the world wondered after the Beast" (Rev. 13:3). His final triumph shall be that men will readily pay him Divine homage, yea, so great will be his dazzling power over men, they will worship his very image (Rev. 13:14,15).
This coming world leader will begin by exerting control over ten nations which were once part of the Roman Empire . . .
"The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from [out of]
this kingdom [the Roman Empire ... could be 10 nations out of the European Union)
And another shall rise after them;
he [the Antichrist] shall be different from the first ones,
and shall subdue three kings [or nations] . . ."
"Shall be different"... we don't know what nationality this man will be, or what might make him "different." In one verse he is described as 'the Assyrian' (an area around Syria and Iraq). This man will quickly consolidate power over 10 nations (probably European) and then over the whole world through treaties and war. God warns this man will be empowered by Satan. He will lead the world into the terrors of the Apocalypse. The world will view him as a great leader and a man of peace. This man will be Satan’s counterfeit messiah. He will use deception and lies to "spin" his web of deceit and to conceal his true motives.
The Beast: The Rise of Satan's Anti-christ . . .
"Then I stood on the sand of the sea.
And I saw a beast
rising up out of the sea,
having seven heads and ten horns,
and on his horns ten crowns,
[The book of Daniel explains these represent 10 nations he will rule]
and on his heads a blasphemous name . . .
The dragon [Satan] gave him his power,
his throne, and great authority."
"The coming of the lawless one
is according to the working of Satan,
with all power, signs [miracles], and lying wonders"
(II Th 2:9-10)
"It was granted to him to make war with the saints
and to overcome them.
And authority was given him
over every tribe, tongue, and nation."
[This "leader" will dominate "World" governments]
We are told quite a bit about this coming world leader, who will someday soon rise in power . . .
- He will be indwelt and empowered by Satan
- He will rise to power over 10 nations [from the old Roman Empire ... Europe?
- He will somehow be 'diverse from the rest' so we are not certain he will be European
- He will bring peace, yet conquer through treaties and war
- He will be very, very popular around the world
- He will be a great talker and speech maker
- He will likely be charismatic and is called the king of fierce countenance
- He will enforce a "peace" plan or resolution [covenant] upon nation Israel
- [It doesn’t say he signs this treaty, but he enforces some coming 'peace plan' or resolution]
- He will appear to perform miracles ("lying signs and wonders")
- He will require that everybody on Earth receive a mark or identification on their
- forehead or hand and nobody will legally be able to buy or sell without it
- He will declare he is "God"
- Unspeakable terror and war will then engulf Earth for exactly 3Ѕ years (1260 days)
- He will direct the slaughter of millions
- He will lead the armies of the world into Israel . . . Armageddon.
A Second Beast will Rise.
The coming Antichrist will have a partner - the false prophet . . .
"Then I saw another beast coming up out of the Earth,
and he had two horns like a lamb
and spoke like a dragon.
And he exercises all the authority
of the first beast [the Anti-christ] in his presence,
and causes the Earth and those who dwell in it
to worship the first beast [the Anti-christ],
whose deadly wound was healed."
This powerful leader will rise to power with the Antichrist. In this prophecy God reveals some important information and details concerning this man ...
"Two horns like a lamb,", but "spoke like a dragon" tells us he will be controlled and directed by Satan. This person, along with the religious system he will lead, is referred to as "The Woman Who Rides the Beast" in the book of Revelation. This evil, blood-thirsty "one-world" religion appears to rise out of Rome.
The "Image of the Beast" . . .
"He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast,
that the image of the beast should both speak
and cause as many as would not worship
the image of the beast to be killed."
This false prophet will create some sort of an "image" representing the Anti-christ. All those who refuse to worship it will be executed.
"He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on
their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has
the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." (Rev 13:16-17)
their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has
the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." (Rev 13:16-17)
This mark, which is usually called the "mark of the beast," will place everyone in peril. Complying will ignite the wrath of God and result in a person being cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 14:9-11). Not complying will ignite the wrath of the antichrist and result in a person being beheaded (Revelation 20:4). Everyone will have to decide whether or not to take the mark. Cooperation will open the door for a person to obtain food, water, medicine, housing, electricity, clothing and more. But not cooperating will prevent a person from obtaining the necessities of life. It doesn't require much imagination to realize just how bad this will be. There will be widespread famine. This mark of the beast is why so many prophecy experts talk about the coming "cashless society." They know that a system will be needed to track all buying and selling. They also know that computers can do that if every transaction is scanned. So they believe money will be replaced by a computerized scanning system that will make the infamous mark of the beast both practical and plausible. Fingerprint scanners, voice print scanners, eye scanners, computerized smart cards and implanted computer chips are already a reality that is only step away from what the Bible predicted almost 2,000 years ago.
The details of the little horn of Daniel 7 and the first beast of Revelation 13 reveal the antichrist of Bible prophecy.
Now lets take a closer look at the similarities:
Notice also that the beast and the little horn rule for the same period of time:
The beast and the little horn have a notable leader:
The beast of Revelation 13 and the little horn do the same things:
Here are some additional points:
Notable power and position comes from the 'dragon':
The beast receives a deadly wound:
This wound is healed and the beast regains worldwide influence and power:
The beast is a religious power that receives worship:
Through the books of Revelation and Daniel God gives us a thorough description of the antichrist of Bible prophecy. It is important to identify the antichrist because from it will come the sign, or "mark", of it's authority. Against this mark, "the mark of the beast", or the mark of the authority of the antichrist, comes one of the Bible's strongest prohibitions.
"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, 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:" Revelation 14:9-10
