[Music] this particular miniseries which will be starting today will be on the Antichrist and there are many voices today one of the things that especially with the military background Paul can probably attest to this as well knowing your enemy is vital it's vital
00:36
it's important the Apostle Paul says that we are not ignorant to the wiles of the devil we are to know the types of deceptions that come out there there's been talk for centuries about the identity of the Antichrist and there really are three separate ways to interpret it and then individuals
01:06
usually fall in those categories some people think it's Trump people used to say it was Obama people say well it's not a person it's it's it's Islam in general and we looked at that when we looked at the nation of Israel Nero in the past Caesar Antiochus for epiphanies the Seleucid king of the remnants of the Grecian Empire in Syria and some and I
01:38
believe heard before that some believe that Satan will find a way to mix his DNA with human DNA and will create a being which will be the Antichrist I've heard that one used before so today and we're gonna pray here in a second but today we're gonna look at what the Bible has to say about the Antichrist and the reason we want to do that is
02:11
because we want to know for certain who the Antichrist is we don't want my interpretation of it I don't want my interpretation of it because my interpretation might not necessarily be true we have to come to God not with the idea of reading his word and telling his word what it says but by reading his word and simply asking to know what God
02:45
is revealing there that's what we're gonna seek to do today let's pray Father in heaven Lord thank you so much for your word that it is a bulwark against the enemy that it is the sword of the Spirit Lord that we can we can trust in it and we can find the safe paths the old ways Lord that we can find shelter and security spiritually Lord in them thank you so much for your word
03:25
which you have preserved for us through the ages through the turmoils through the persecutions lord help us to be stronger to be more committed to learning what your will and purposes are for us in Jesus name Amen so I'm calling this I'm calling this the Antichrist showdown and because these all these different
03:58
interpretations of it they're really vying against each other so what I want to do here which is different than you may have seen it before is I'm gonna compare them all side-by-side because I like to see things visually and show which boxes get checked where and we can see as we go down the list who's checking the boxes and who's not when we see the characteristics we're gonna focus specifically on the Antichrist and
04:29
the Antichrist and I think this is important to remember the Antichrist power spoken of in the Bible it only exists because we allowed it to exist believers do you think the Antichrist would have appeared in the days of the Apostle Paul I doubt it I highly doubt it he talked about wolves coming in after he left it was the
05:00
spirit of compromise which revelation chapter 3 in the letters to the churches talked about allowing the that the harlot Jezebel to teach that spirit of compromise led to the Antichrist power arising because the Antichrist power in a nutshell is human aspiration fully realized right I mean at the end of the day when we reject God we want to be God
05:32
that's how that works we want to be God so the Antichrist in the place of Christ is the full realization of that carnal nature of humanity that we all possess so we're gonna kind of fast forward in Daniel and Daniel chapter 7 where we see this little horn power come up past this first we see the the lion come up which is Babylon and then the bear which had
06:03
the three ribs in its mouth because it destroyed three empires or consumed three empires the mate Oh Persian Empire bear raised up on one side Greece with the four divisions the four heads and the four wings signifying the speed and then the terrible beast which was Rome now and in Chapter eight these two are pointed out by name in Chapter two this one's pointed out by name the word Rome
06:35
never appears in these chapters in Daniel okay how do we know that it's Rome is the terrible beast that comes after Greece what's that ten horns ten kingdoms okay yeah this power took captivity and control of God's covenant people okay this is why this is this beast represents Babylon now which was
07:07
the next Kingdom or empire that took over God's people Persia right and they allowed them to go back didn't they and rebuild the temple then what came Greece Greece was in control of Israel this is why it's not the Incan Empire or any of the Asian dynasties or the greatest largest wise empire to ever exist which was the Mongolian Empire
07:37
throughout all Asia Russia and over into the northern parts of Eastern Europe it's not them because Greece took over Israel and gain control of God's covenant people who was the next power to do that who took out Greece and when Jesus was born who was in control Rome it was Pontius Pilate right the
08:11
provincial governor who had Jesus executed again even after saying that he was an innocent man so who was in control of God's people Rome that's why it's Rome that's why it's not the Incan Empire or some other Empire it's the the countries the kingdoms that gain control of God's chosen people Paul you made a statement earlier about in Paul's day the
08:42
Antichrist had not appeared and could not it wasn't ready the spirit was there and the thing about demonic religion is what people don't realize and that's how these powers came to be humanism is the pinnacle the ultimate satanic worship for instance today we have praising children for everything don't offend me all this is humanism self-help books
09:14
ride self-help books and in Rome the more evil you were the more godlike they made you which is amazing which is exactly how Rome works but that's humanism yes so the stage is set and ripe for the plucking right it's that spirit of indulgence that exists within every human being that seems to get applauded the spirit concur with Alexander and and Julius Caesar those are the spirits that get applauded that get praised that get
09:47
deified whereas the courage and the strength coming from God and aided by divine divine let me put it this way human effort and divine power together in self-control that's never applauded is it it's only the indulgences the excesses that are so this is that as Paul said humanism is it is the Antichrist power humanism it's just it
10:20
fills into it so we have three major views that all the other views fall under okay we have pre tourism which is the belief that the little horn power spoken of in Daniel chapter 7 which we're going to get into the verses in a minute that it refers to an individual in the past okay this was fulfilled by Antiochus war
10:51
epiphanies from from Greece or Emperor Nero who persecuted the Christians blamed the Christians for the fire in Rome then we have futurism and dispensationalism falls in here as well you know they have this is this is the most common belief throughout Christianity as a whole today is futurism that it's some guy in the future or some power in the future they
11:25
have movies about this pre-trib post-trib no trib all that all that fun stuff that they talk about futurism is the belief most commonly held by the world today and I think you'll find it very interesting as we look through it and then we have the historicist view is what it's called because we like to call things ists and isms so that's why it gets that name the
11:55
historicism you simply means that you're reading the Bible you're looking at things that have happened in history and seeing how they correlate and the historicist view always believed that the papacy was the fulfillment of the Antichrist power the little Horn of Daniel chapter 7 this is the historic Protestant view but remember the Protestants being part of the
12:27
Reformation were protesting against Catholicism so we might not necessarily be able to trust them right they're probably biased Martin Luther was not I'll tell you that Martin Luther never wanted to leave the Catholic Church he wanted to reform it thus the name the Reformation in fact on a side note I think you might find it interesting when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the Wittenberg chapel he
13:00
wrote it in Latin did you know that Latin was not something that was spoken of by anybody but the scholars and the clergy members who had studied it and learned it so what Luther was actually trying to do when he wrote that was he was trying to start a scholarly debate on the issue of indulgences that's what he was trying to do he was not trying to destroy the church but you see somebody
13:30
who could interpret Latin took it put it in the language of the people and it spread like wildfire throughout Germany but it's interesting if you stand up for the truth the persecution the conflict it will find you you don't have to go looking for it all the time so let's let's look at a synopsis on Nero and I have some of the sources here that I used these are my words but these are
14:01
the sources that are I'm sort of summarizing here and you can find all this information there he's the fifth Roman Emperor okay he reigned from 54 to 68 80 his mother Agri Pina the younger had cunningly conspired to assassinate Claudius to insert Nero as Emperor to which five years after the start of his reign he killed his mother and you can look at that from Emperor Nero facts and by auger from LiveScience calm he took the throne at age 16 guided much by Seneca
14:32
in his early years who later he forced to commit suicide according to Tacitus Suetonius and Casias do Roman historians Nero lived in extravagant and cruel reign he caused the Great Fire of Rome according to them so that he could destroy ancient Roman buildings that were in the way of his plans to construct Damas area which was a building construction he had of which he blamed the Christians who then proceeded who then he proceeded to persecute outlaw torture crucify used for
15:04
entertainment in the Coliseum and he even used them as torches for his personal parties at his palace pretty sick right Tacitus states that he did this out of his own cruel desire and not for justice for the fire of Rome in annals book 15 the Apostle Paul was beheaded during his reign and as was Peter martyred and the first Jewish War began which ended with the destruction of the second temple in 70 AD he fancied
15:36
himself a god accepting the titles of Mithra the new Apollo and the new son Nero accused his political enemies of false treasonous crimes and had them executed along with some wives who he accused of adultery and 64 ad he was married to a freed man a man by the name of Pythagoras of which Nero wore the veil as a bride eventually Nero's paranoia and excesses caught up to him when a rival galva
16:07
declared himself Emperor the praetorian guard and main Roman army abandoned him and refused his orders and the Senate declared him a public enemy sentencing him to be beaten to death in the Roman Forum for all to see before their purposes could be carried out Nero committed suicide and civil war ensued from the Encyclopedia Britannica on Nero and from a book by Edward Champlin Nero simply Nero from 2005
16:39
so Nero was not a good guy he was not a good guy he's a very sick guy and as you see ascending the throne I mean what kind of person do you have to be that would kill their own mother but then again his mother got him in office by assassinating others who were in her son's way it's crazy I mean who would want this life this was the king of the world at one point so definitely not a
17:12
good person here Antiochus for epiphanies another synopsis from books on Josephus at the the sources at the end so we'll show you the source at the end again these are my words it's a synopsis of many pages ok he was a Seleucid king he reigned from 175 to 164 BC of the remnants of the Greek Eastern Empire which was one of the four divisions in Jerusalem there was a local feud between two parties for the office
17:44
of high priest between Jason and Menelaos who the less successful Menelaos appealed to Antiochus showing a desire to abandon Jewish law and custom and become more Greek even building a gymnasium in Jerusalem under antiochus's backing now that's really oversimplified about exactly what was going on between those two individuals but this was the open door that Antiochus for epiphanies was offered when the Jews asked for his
18:15
help to settling the dispute of High Priest okay so they opened the door to him Antiochus for led a successful campaign against Egypt led by the Ptolemy dynasty which was another Greek division shortly after he was routed when the an empire intervene and sent Antiochus for back to his room not able to claim any spoils from his advances in Egypt he sacked Jerusalem upon his return and stole great wealth and he did that because they were problematic within his
18:47
Empire or what was left of his empire and he essentially he was really upset that Rome sent him tail between his legs back to his realm and he said you know what I'm gonna deal with these people in Jerusalem now so that's what he did he plundered the temple wealth stole the sacred furniture and veil ordered the halt of the daily sacrifices carried away ten thousand men women and children captive and slew many set up a garrison
19:19
in Jerusalem which tortured the citizens and finally set up an altar to Zeus in the temple and offered swine upon it he went further to compel the Jewish nation to forsake the worship of God and to pay homage to idols many altars in his own image commanding temples and altars to be built throughout the land where Israel's priests were told to offer swine every day throughout Judah he outlawed circumcision he outlawed the Sabbath and he outlawed the Word of God those who
19:51
disobeyed and this is a quote from Josephus's book they were whipped with rods and their bodies were torn to pieces and were crucified while they were still alive and breathed they also strangled those women and their sons whom they had circumcised as the King had appointed hanging their sons about their necks as they were upon the crosses that's sick and if there were any sacred book of the law found it was destroyed and those with whom they were found miserably
20:22
perished also so in other words if you were found with the Word of God not only was the book destroyed but you and your family were destroyed the Sabbath was outlawed the whole daily ritual of sacrifice was changed to idol worship for a time on in the Samaritans who had claimed to be God's true people in times past had claimed to be a sido nyan colony cutting all ties with Jehovah they wrote an epistle to Antiochus for his persecution
20:54
of all those following Jewish custom outlawing the Sabbath also they were they stated quote to Antiochus the God okay epiphanies a memorial from the sidonians who live at Shechem our forefathers upon certain frequent plagues and as following a certain ancient superstition had a custom of observing that day which by the Jews is called the Sabbath now upon the just
21:24
treatment of these wicked Jews those that manage their affairs supposing that were of kin to them and practiced as they do make us liable to the same accusations although we be originally Sidonians as is evident from the public records we therefore beseech thee our benefactor and Savior capital S to give order to apollyon us the governor of this part of the country and to Nick Nikon or the procurator of thy affairs to give us no
21:56
disturbance nor delay to our charge what the Jews are accused for since we are aliens from their nation and from their customs but let let our temple which at the present hath no name at all be named the temple of Jupiter Hellenists Antiochus agreed to the this term and ordered to a cease of all disturbances against Samaria after they dedicated their temple to Jupiter which is Satan and this is all these these quotes were
22:26
from Josephus antiquity of the Jews vol 11 chapters 4 & 5 of the works of Josephus later this is this is an artistic rendering of the altar to Zeus set up in the temple mount with swine's flesh being offered upon it and the Greek Syrian Greek soldiers that were there later judas maccabees led a guerrilla war against Antiochus the
22:56
fourth which was successful returning autonomy that's Independence and 164 BC which they retained until the Romans destroyed the temple in 70 AD collected from first and second Maccabees and the Encyclopedia Britannica on Antiochus for epiphany so Antiochus for he was he was no good person either in fact Antiochus for epiphanies is a
23:28
Greek word where we get the word epiphany from because he just thought he was so great okay and he ruled over the Jews for a time but eventually keep this in mind eventually the Jews rose up against Antiochus the Jews did and they defeated him and regain their independence so now let's get into Daniel on the little horn power here we go now that we know what's going on with
24:01
Antiochus with Nero with Islam and with the papacy we'll take a look at who fits the role Daniel chapter 7 verse 7 through 8 after this I saw in the night visions and behold a fourth beast dreadful and terrible and strong exceedingly and it had great iron teeth it devoured and brake in pieces and stamped the residue with the feet of it and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it and it had ten horns I considered the horns and behold there
24:34
came up among them another little horn before whom three were before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots and behold in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth speaking great things so we got out sort of unlock some of these symbols because we're not actually talking about an actual little horn are we right we're talking about beasts powers as we
25:04
discuss our kingdoms so a little horn we have to unlock that symbol and find out exactly what it means so what is a horn Daniel chapter same chapter going a little bit forward to verses 23 to 24 thus he said the fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth which shall be diverse from all kingdoms and shall devour the whole earth and shall tread it down and break it in pieces and the ten horns out of
25:35
this kingdom are ten Kings that shall arise and another another what another king shall arise after them and he shall be diverse from the first and he shall subdue three kings okay so what is a horn it's a king and what is a beast a kingdom right so if we have ten horns on a beast we have an empire Kingdom that
26:06
has ten Kings that obviously have some type of authority within that Kingdom then we have a little Horn arise it arises up it wasn't there in the beginning but it arises up after after the Division of the ten Kings and then plucks three up by the roots and the Bible although I don't want to jump too far ahead but the Bible also says he becomes more stout than his fellows which means he grows much taller than the rest of them he becomes the e king on this beast so we know the beast is
26:38
Rome who are these horns this is this was something that was offered by the people that believed that Islam is the Antichrist there are these possibly the the ten kings of Daniel chapter 7 well first off do they come from Rome no Egypt Sudan Libya all that they're listing all these different kings here from Iraq Iran Afghanistan Pakistan and
27:11
I I'm I'll ask the question what about Jordan what about Saudi Arabia which is by far head and shoulders above all these other nations in power what about OMA and Neiman Arab United Arab Emirates what about those countries do there are those considered part of the horns too who decides so this this is to me this is this is too confusing this is sort of shaky ground I like things that
27:43
are simple don't you because I have to remind myself when I'm reading the Bible that this Bible was not written for geniuses only so that the genius could understand it the scholars could understand it and that they could give it to the rest of the people it was not designed for them only it still was designed for them this book the Bible was designed so that if the whole world
28:15
was purged from any remnant of Christianity that if a a word of God was dropped in the hands of a peasant in Australia a cook in Canada a businessperson in Asia that after they accepted the truths that are within this in that book that if you brought them all together their faith would be identical that's who this book was was written for so this this is confusion who decides which which is the horn
28:45
which are which horns are in and which horns are out who decides a human a human being on the other hand this is the Roman Empire this is the beast in all of its glory okay this is 117 ad this is in the time of Hadrian who expanded the Empire to its greatest limits that the Roman Empire had ever saw and then would ever see again from here the decline came and it just continued to decline until it eventually
29:16
withered away officially the Roman Empire not talking about the Roman Senate but the Empire under an emperor started in 27 BC through 476 ad and the reason why I go this is a traditional dates the reason why it goes to 476 ad is because that's when Rome was taken from the Roman ist's okay and the Germanic tribes gained control over them
29:47
for about a hundred years almost so that's when Rome was that's when the capital was taken so we see in history that as the decline came you see it's a much smaller area here eventually it split into two separate sides you have the east and the west kingdom what was left of Rome in the Roman Empire the western kingdom the Germanic tribes began to move in and they wanted rights they wanted what Rome had everybody
30:17
wanted a piece of the Roman Empire so as Rome is declining due to all the power being in one person and the atrocities that were done by Caesars Rome began to decline and as they decline and their power weakened you had different powers that were jockeying for who was going to be the new leader of Rome so you had these Germanic tribes
30:48
who had the LMI from Germany the Franks from France the Visigoths in Spain the Suevi in Portugal the Lombards in Italy the Burgundians in Switzerland the Anglo Saxons in Britain the her oh I which were in Italy and parts of Greece the Ostrogoths which were in Greece and Macedonia and the Vandals which were right here in North Africa the last three kingdoms the hurroo lie the
31:19
Ostrogoths and the Vandals these last three horns okay kingdoms Kings they were destroyed according to history because they would not accept the church's decree on the divinity of Christ and this is what is known as the Arian heresy the Vandals the her oh I and the Ostrogoths Alba and others other parts because this was a bully
31:49
system that was going on they believed in arianism which is the belief that Jesus was not God okay in a nutshell there's other aspects to it but that's what it is basically so really on on the beast and we're looking at the horns you have all these Germanic tribes these ten horns they're trying to gain control of what's left of Rome then you have a spiritual aspect which is Arianism Arianism is also trying to take over
32:21
Rome as a whole and then you have another spiritual aspect the Roman Catholic Church or Romanism and what was left of the empire that are fighting to keep what they have and destroy Arianism so you have one that's just the political power in the Germanic kings you have one that is a spiritual force in Arianism and you have one that is both in Romanism that's what you have going on here history shows that the
32:53
holy king oda sir who took over Rome in 476 ad remember that's when the Roman Empire is considered to be over was defeated by the Ostrogoth king theodoric and 493 ad and they ruled from that time until the Roman general Belisarius defeated the Vandals as a nation in 534 ad and the Ostrogoths in 538 ad were eliminated from Rome
33:24
so Rome was taken over by the Germanic tribes it wasn't clear who was the victor at that point of these three jockeying powers it wasn't clear Rome Romanism lost its seat lost its power when the harue lie and then eventually the Ostrogoths who destroyed the hurroo lie came and took over Rome Rome regained control of the city of Rome in
33:56
538 ad and destroyed the other kingdom so you had her rule I born wiped off the face of the earth wiped off the beast okay that's one horn plucked up then the Ostrogoths or it sorry the yes no the Vandals in 534 were destroyed by general Belisarius and then again general Belisarius defeated the Ostrogoths and removed them from the city of rome there's your three horns
34:27
that were plucked up by the roots and what was the issue why were they plucked up by the roots it was a theological issue they were destroyed because they would not accept the church's decree on the divinity of Christ that's why they were destroyed now whether Christ is God or is not God do I have the right to destroy somebody if they don't believe as I do
34:59
No so that's not Christian is it keep that in mind so the horn because remember we're talking about a king a king is nothing without a kingdom right so the horn power is officially established in 538 ad and not before 538 ad but in 538 ad up to that time arianism in Romanism both claiming to be Christian but both alike lacking many of the essentials of the religion of Christ
35:31
had been contending one against the other for supremacy but the goth so far as being dominant was concerned that hope perished in 538 and Romanism entered upon a new era in its career that led to a spiritual dominance unknown to the papal system before that time it was in 533 AD that Justinian the Emperor living in the East in
36:01
Constantinople addressed the Pope as being quote head of all the churches and the code of Justinian library one title one a little later but in the same year the emperor repeats a decision previously made that all affairs touching the church shall be referred to the Pope head of all bishops and true and effective corrector of heretics ministry magazine CB Pohlman from 19 August 1931
36:33
why the year 538 so is is the papacy a horn power is he a king of course he is of course he is from this point on it seems as if the Emperor living in the East Justinian who's some considered to be the LAT one of the last true Roman emperors he hands off his authoritative power in 533 ad
37:04
to who to the papacy to do what to be head of all the churches that makes him a king a leader right that all affairs touching the church shall be referred to the Pope head of all bishops and true and effective corrector of heretics that's political power now he's able to deal with heretics as he sees fit so you have a spiritual and political authority
37:34
found in the Pope and 533 ad according to the decree of Emperor Justinian but the problem is is that a horn can't be a horn without a city or a kingdom can they and that wasn't established until when 538 ad 538 ad so the horn is restored this is general Belisarius who defeated the Ostrogoths in rome in 538
38:07
that's Emperor Justinian there and this is Pope virgilius who was the the reigning Pope at the time said virgilius a pliant creature of Theodora ascended the papal chair under the military protection of Belisarius history of the Christian Church volume 3 page 320 seven so in 538 when the Ostrogoths removed out the papal throne vacant was what the papacy us ascended to that throne under the protection of the
38:38
political arm of Rome making him essentially crowning him as the king in Rome that make sense because the Emperor where was he Constantinople from Jay a wily on his book the papacy at page 33 through 34 it says the rank of Rome as the seat of government and the metropolis of the world had lifted her Bishop to a proud preeminence above his peers he's summarizing sort of what happened
39:10
over the years okay the papacy being the Bishop of Rome at first all the bishops were basically on equal playing field but Rome being that it was the seat of the Roman Empire at one point the bishop in Rome over over years over centuries began to be elevated more and more by people like who they call Saint Augustine and other scholars and the people in general began to elevate so
39:43
whose fault is it it's our fault it's our fault that this happened so he had lifted her Bishop to a proud preeminence above his peers but Rome was the head of an empire no longer the prestige of her name in which all ages has struck the imagination so powerfully and though the imagination captivated the judgment she still retained for by no charge could she become bereft of her immortal memories but the subject nations no longer called her mother and ruler with
40:15
Rome would have fallen her Bishop here that with Rome would have fallen her Bishop that's the papacy had he not that's the papacy had the papacy not as if by anticipation of the crisis reserved to this hour the master stroke of his policy he now boldly cast himself upon an element of much greater strength and of that of which the political convulsions of the times had deprived him namely that the Bishop of Rome is the successor of Peter the Prince of the
40:48
Apostles and in virtue of being so is Christ's vicar on earth in making this claim the Roman pontiff Svalbard and her popes the rulers of Earth absolutely a horn power you know it's interesting we're according to evolution we're supposed to be getting smarter and smarter do you see the way these people
41:20
right back then this is written in 1800s do you see the way some of the some of the quotes I read from Josephus and Tacitus when yeah interesting but we're smarter than them okay so that's again that's from Jay a Wiley the papacy listen to this from Thomas Hobbes for from the time the Bishop of Rome had gotten to be acknowledged for Bishop Universal by pretence of succession to
41:52
st. Peter their whole hierarchy or kingdom of darkness may be compared not unfit ly to the kingdom of fairies that is to the old wives fables in England concerning ghosts and spirits and the feats they play in the night and if a man consider the original of this great ecclesiastical Dominion he will easily perceive that the papacy is no other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire sitting crowned upon the grave thereof for so did the papacy start up
42:24
on a sudden out of the ruins of that heathen power Leviathan chapter 47 so as Rome declined the Empire of Rome its leader essentially was unfound anew in the papacy and as the political power declined they claimed a spiritual authority to preserve themselves they defeated arianism okay and then
42:55
they rose above the other political Kings the other horns to the preeminence as Jay a wily said they vaulted they'd like pole-vaulting they vaulted above the throne of Kings to the throne of gods and they became once again the rulers of the entire earth definitely a horn power it reminds me of the occult teaching of the phoenix rising out of
43:28
the ashes which is a huge teaching in secret societies and in occult doctrine this is seen in the papacy and I'm sure it's a belief they hold themselves so one did it come from Rome that's important Islam do they come from Rome it all depends on who you talk to but uh looking at it at base value no they come
43:58
out of the Middle East right we'll take a look at that again later the papacy did they come out of Rome where are they located now Rome they're still in Rome Antiochus did not but we're putting them both together we're gonna give if if Nero gets one that Antiochus gets one and vice-versa all right did they come from Rome Nero did okay now arises after
44:30
the ten divisions of Rome hundreds of years before the ten divisions of Rome was Nero Emperor hundreds of years Antiochus more hundreds of years an extra two hundred years added on to that Islam did they arise out of the ten divisions of Rome no no actually they arise after the papacy ascended the throne under Belisarius it was in the sixth century
45:01
seventh century but the papacy they arise after the ten divisions of Rome they arise out of Rome who plucks up three horns of Rome did Nero destroy three kings within his own Empire no he did not he was the only King right because there was no divisions back then Antiochus Antiochus he was like a remnant of a remnant you see when Greece
45:32
was first an empire under Alexander the Great after Alexander fell the kingdom divided and the generals fought against each other and eventually as the fighting sort of simmered down and peace was brought throughout the remnants of the Grecian Empire there were four main sections four so in Titus no Islam did they pluck up three horns of Rome no the
46:02
papacy did so based on this alone can Islam or Nero Antiochus can even are they even allowed to continue to look at the characteristics because if you're the Antichrist you have to check you have to check how many boxes one of them two of them five of them or all of them every single one but we're not going to do that we're gonna let them stay in the race because as we go further like I
46:36
said I like things that are visual so when we see this stacked up side by side we'll we'll see exactly what the information in the Bible is trying to tell us now this is another important part according to Daniel chapter 7 verses 9 through 14 which I'll read the horn the little horn power is destroyed by God okay who isn't i Kaz for epiphanies destroyed by
47:07
the Jews when they rose up against them right they gain their independence how about Nero Nero destroyed himself didn't he Islam that's yet to be seen I beheld till thrones were cast down and the Ancient of Days did sit whose garment was white as snow and the hair of his head like the pure wool his throne was like a fiery flame and his wheels as burning fire a fiery stream issued and came forth from before him thousands thousand thousand thousand ministered
47:38
unto him and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him the judgment was set and the books were opened I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake I beheld even till the beast was slain and his body his body destroyed and given to the burning flame as concerning the rest of the beasts they had their dominion taken away yet their lives were prolonged for a season at a time I saw in the night visions and behold one like the Son of man came with the clouds of
48:09
heaven and came to the Ancient of Days and they brought him near before him and there was given him Dominion and glory and a kingdom that all people nations and languages should serve him his Dominion is an everlasting Dominion which shall not pass away in his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed so according to these verses the Ancient of Days God the Father sitting in his throne surrounded by angels Christ comes to him right that says the Son of man
48:40
ascended to the Ancient of Days came with the clouds of heaven when did that happen when Christ ascended remember when he ascended and he send it up in the clouds and could you imagine being there and they were probably like wait what where's he going yeah isn't he gonna restore the kingdom and all this stuff now remember they were asking him that but the angels come I said why do you stare up into heaven
49:11
this same Jesus he will come in like manner to you again so Jesus goes to the ancient and there's a judgment that takes place here on the little horn power and just because the fact that a judgment takes place before the close of time we can know that this judgment has to deal with those who claim to be covered by the blood of Christ why do I
49:42
say that what takes place first the judgment of the living or the wicked or the judgment of the righteous or the wicked the judgment of the righteous or those who so call themselves why why does that judgment take place first the Apostle Paul says that we will judge angels right that will be in the second resurrection not the first so that will
50:13
take place when after Christ returns right but there is a judgment that takes place before that before Christ returns because he doesn't choose all the Saints and then bring them to heaven and then have a judgment with them and then say see all you guys were saved this is why that doesn't take place the judgments going on when Christ entered into the day of atonement in 1844 everybody on earth who has ever claimed to be under
50:44
God's grace and mercy and protection and their sins covered by the blood of the Lamb is written in the book of the Lamb and they have to choose whether or not that person when they come up in the judgment was a legitimate Christian or was a deceiver so just for the fact that this takes place before the second coming of Christ it tells you that this power claims to be Christian does Nero
51:17
claim to be Christian Tychus bort no Islam no not even close they do not and who is who destroys it God Himself destroys it so it's destroyed in the Second Coming by Christ in other words this power rules until Christ's second coming does that make sense so is Nero still ruling today no he's not
51:47
Antiochus no they're long dead Islam they don't come from Rome so Rome rules because the Beast rules right it's the Beast which is Rome and it's division of its horns and it's little horn power Rome rules until the judgment is declared and then Christ returns and destroys it himself the only one that this could possibly fit in is the papacy because they're the ones who
52:22
come from Rome so what is this telling you about what's going on in the world who's actually in control of the world Rome according to the Bible Rome we're gonna stop there and we'll pick it up in Daniel as we keep going along we'll see this chart grow more and more with these characteristics let's pray thank you Lord for your word thank you for its simplicity Lord thank you that we can see the things clearly laid out
53:03
in history that we can know what your will is for our lives that we can know of the prophecies of the the Antichrist power whom you've warned us about that we can know your truth that we can be settled in it that your faith is one faith that your your religion your love your your kingdom it extends beyond our cultural differences that we have here in this life Lord thank you so much for
53:35
