The end time beasts and where the anti-Christ will come from

The End time beast and where the anti-Christ will come from

Many Christians wonder where the anti-Christ will come from and who are the end time beast?  Understanding where the anti-Christ will come from is important for those who wish to keep a watchful eye on the end time events and characters. In-fact, the understanding of who, where and what the anti-Christ will do is critically important as we near the end of this age because  of the deception that will be practiced during that time. The Bible says if the times had not been shortened even the saints would have fallen into the deception of those days. This is because it will be so well crafted to deceive all those that lack knowledge. In Daniel chapters 2 8 and 7 clues of where the anti-Christ will come from are given. Understand the clues, and all the facts about the anti-Christ as written in these prophecies so that you can watch keenly having the knowledge of Truth. Read the Bible and aim to understand… God is faithful to give you wisdom and understanding if you ask.

Note that, the prophecies in Daniel 2, and 8 are double fulfilling prophecies. They happened in the past and will happen again at the end of this age. The prophecies in Daniel that happened in the past are confirmed by history. Although they were prophesied many years ago, history records them to have happened just as it was prophesied proving that Jesus Christ the giver of prophecy, (prophecy testifies about Jesus Christ) is Who He says He is, He was at the beginning, and to the very end He will be. Just as The Word was spoken and it came to be, it is now spoken again about this age, and it shall happen!

Daniel  Two,  Daniel Eight and Daniel seven

Study through Daniel 2, 7 and 8, refer to history where necessary and you will have the answers as to where the anti-Christ will come from. You will need a pen, a book and your Bible as this article requires a deeper study through Daniel 2, Daniel 8 and Daniel Chapter 7.
 
Daniel two: The dream of Nebuchadnezzar
The dream
Daniel 2 31 “Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. 32 The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. 34 While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.

The statue in Daniel 2 represents four kingdoms that will rise and rule the whole earth.
The first kingdom represented by head of Gold will be Babylon, followed by the arms and chest of silver as the second kingdom and the belly and thighs of bronze representing the third kingdom. The second and third kingdoms will be inferior to Babylon. Then will come the fourth kingdom which will be as strong as iron. The kingdom extends to feet and toes of iron indicating at the time of the feet and toes rule, the kingdoms will be divided and not have the same power. As the toes are of mixed clay and iron, the kingdoms will be partly strong and partly brittle and its people will not mix.
A rock cut out of a mountain but not by human hand will strike the statue at the feet crushing it into chaff that will be swept by the wind and no trace left. The rock itself will grow and fill the earth. The rock is the kingdom that will be set up by God in the times of those kings. The rock or kingdom of God will crush the worldly kingdom completely, not a trace of those kingdoms will be left. This kingdom (rock) will grow and endure forever.
The important part to note from Daniel two is the point at which Jesus Christ  (the rock that was cut but not by human hands) returns or crushes the statue or worldly kingdoms to establish a righteous kingdom that will not be destroyed. The rock crushes the image at the feet and toes therefore, it will be during the rule of the earthly kingdoms at the feet and ten toes when Jesus Christ destroys the worldly kingdom.  The feet and toes represent the kingdoms that extended the fourth kingdoms rule.

Daniel 8  Daniel’s Vision and Angel Gabriel’s interpretation
Vision of a Ram
Daniel 8: I looked up, and there before me was a ram with two horns, …the horns were long. One of the horns was longer than the other but grew up later. I watched the ram as it charged toward the west and the north and the south. No animal could stand against it, and none could rescue from its power. It did as it pleased and became great.
Angel Gabriel’s interpretation of the ram with two horns, …
Daniel 8 20 The two-horned ram that you saw represents the kings of Media and Persia.
Daniel vision of a goat with prominent horn
Daniel 8 ..goat with a prominent horn between its eyes came from the west, crossing the whole earth without touching the ground.  I saw it attack the ram furiously, striking the ram and shattering its two horns. …. The goat became very great, but at the height of its power the large horn was broken off, and in its place four prominent horns grew up toward the four winds of heaven.
Angel Gabriel’s interpretation of the goat  vs 5-8
Daniel 8 21 The shaggy goat is the king of Greece, and the large horn between its eyes is the first king.22 The four horns that replaced the one that was broken off represent four kingdoms that will emerge from his nation but will not have the same power.
 
The horn that started small and grew in power to South, East and the beautiful land
Daniel 8 Out of one of them came another horn, …started small but grew in power to the south and to the east and toward the Beautiful Land. 10 It grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them. 11 It set itself up to be as great as the commander of the army of the Lord; it took away the daily sacrifice from the Lord, and his sanctuary was thrown down. 12 Because of rebellion, the Lord’s people and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything it did, and truth was thrown to the ground.
Angel Gabriel’s interpretation of the horn that will grow towards the South, East and the beautiful land
Daniel 8 23 “In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a fierce-looking king, a master of intrigue, will arise. 24 He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy those who are mighty, the holy people. 25 He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.

The visions of Daniel in chapter 8 show the kingdoms that will rise from the earth represented by a ram and a goat. These kingdoms are identified by angel Gabriel as the kingdom of Media-Persian and the kingdom of Greece. The wicked king who will rise at the latter part of these kings rule is described in detail, showing what the king will do.

Conclusion
The prophecies in the book of Daniel are confirmed by historic events. Daniel 2 and 8 give the name of the three kingdoms and how they followed each other in their rule.  Babylon is confirmed  in Daniel two as the first kingdom represented by the head of Gold. Daniel 8 gives the names of the second and the third kingdoms as the Media-Persian and the Greek empires. History confirms these kingdoms ruled in succession just as they were recorded in the prophecies of Daniel. The fourth kingdom is not mentioned but described. Through history, the Roman empire is confirmed as the fourth kingdom that was as strong as iron and most cruel compared to the empires before it.
In Daniel 2, the feet and toes of the statue extend from the legs of iron and history confirms the kingdom of iron was Rome. Therefore, according to Daniel 2, at the time when the feet and toes are in power, Jesus Christ the Rock will crush the worldly kingdoms represented by the statue. That is, at the time when the kingdoms that extended the Roman empire will be in power, the rock crushes the statue to dust; After crushing the worldly kingdoms, Jesus Christ will establish an everlasting kingdom of righteousness.
In Daniel 8, the wicked king rises in the latter part (nearer to the end) of the worldly kingdoms. The latter part of the world kingdoms will be when the kingdoms that extended from Rome are in power.
The understanding of Daniel 2 and 8 is crucial in confirming where the anti-Christ will come from. It will be from the  nations that extended from the Roman empire the anti-Christ will come from. At the time of those nations rule at the time of the anti-Christ, Jesus Christ will crush the worldly kingdoms to set up a kingdom that will endure forever.

Daniel’s Dream of Four Beasts In Daniel 7
Daniel 7 , Daniel had a dream, and visions passed through his mind … He wrote down the substance of his dream.
The four beasts in Daniel 7
Daniel 7 2 Daniel said: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea. Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea.
4“The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a human being, and the mind of a human was given to it.
5 “And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh!’
6“After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.
“After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.

23 “He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. 24 The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom.

The little horn in Daniel 7
Daniel 7“While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully.
“As I looked,
“thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat.
His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool.
His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze.
10 A river of fire was flowing coming out from before him.
Thousands upon thousands attended him ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him.
The court was seated, and the books were opened.
11 “Then I continued to watch because of the boastful words the horn was speaking. I kept looking until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire. 12 (The other beasts had been stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time.)
The angel explains the Meaning of the small horn who comes after the ten horns
Daniel 724 …After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. 25 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws.

The Visions in Daniel 7 show four beasts that represent the four kingdoms that will rule the whole earth. The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will be different from the first three. It had ten kings represented by the ten horns. While this kingdom with ten kings is in power, another king represented by the small horn, a will rise up from among them. The small horn will subdue three of the first ten kings and speak proud words against the Most High. He will  oppress the saints for a time, times and half a time until his power is taken away and given to the saints forever.
Conclusion of the prophecies in Daniel 2 Daniel 8 and Daniel 7
In Daniel 2, four kingdoms are represented by different parts of the statue. The first kingdom is identified as Babylon. The fourth Kingdom of Iron extend to the feet and toes of iron. Jesus Christ the Rock crushes the statue at the feet and toes signifying the destruction of the worldly kingdoms and the start of the righteous kingdom . Daniel 8 speaks of the same kingdoms as Daniel two and seven while at the same time giving more information about the wicked king who will rise at the end of the worldly kingdoms. In Daniel 8, the second and third kingdom are identified as Media- Persian and the Greek kingdom respectively. History confirms these beasts ruled in succession of each other as was prophesied by Daniel and confirms the name of the fourth beast as Rome. Daniel 7 describes the fourth kingdom with ten horns  in detail, giving informing about the small horn who will rise from the kingdom. The small horn or king, will subdue three of the first ten kings and will speak proud words against the Most High. He will try to change the set times and Laws. He will oppress the saints for a time, times and a half time before his power is taken and the kingdom is given to the people of God forever.
The prophecies of the fourth kingdoms spoken of in Daniel 2, Daniel 8 and Daniel 7 are double fulfilling prophecies. They happened in the past and will happen again at the end of this age. The wicked king who rises from the nations that extended the rule of Rome as spoken of in Daniel 8 is the 7th head of the dragon that will rise along with ten horns to power at the end of this age as described in Revelation 17. This wicked king is confirmed to have risen to power in Revelation 13 through the beast out of the sea who has 7 heads, 10 horns and ten crowns on its horns to indicate the ten horns have received power to rule. In Isaiah, this wicked king is referred by the kingdom he will represent, Assyria, while in Jeremiah, and Revelation 9, he is referred to as the destroyer who will command an army compared to swarms of locust.
The small horn or king who will rise in the fourth kingdom to destroy three of the ten horns and oppress the saints is the beast who once was, now not but will come up again from the abyss  as the 8th head of the dragon. This beast, is among the 7 heads of the dragon or devil and will rise to rule on behalf of the wicked king described in Daniel 8.This small horn in Daniel 7 is the beast out of the earth in Revelation 13 and will represent the kingdom of Babylon that was the first to rule as indicated in Daniel 2.
The wicked king of Daniel 8 is the anti-Christ who rises from the sea and the small horn is the false prophet who rises from the earth in Revelation 13. The anti-Christ or wicked king will rise along with the ten king to destroy the earth as indicated in Trumpet 5 in Revelations while the false prophet will rise to oppress the saints after he destroys three of the first ten kings at the war by the River Euphrates described in Trumpet 6.
To conclude, the fourth beast rose before but will rise again at the end of this age. The anti-Christ or wicked king will rule over the fourth kingdom that will rise. He will come from one of the nations that extended from the Roman kingdom and will rise along with ten kings represented by the ten toes and ten horns in Daniel 2 and Daniel 7 respectively. After their rise to power, another king will arise from the nations that extended from Rome, he will kill three of the ten kings and rule on behalf of the anti-Christ as indicated in Revelation 13.
