The Anti-Christ Is Here PART 2
“…And he shall speak great words against the Most High…”  Daniel 7:25
We are confronted with the most solemn warnings ever pronounced by God in the book of Revelation. Weread,“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: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and hisimage, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Rev 14: 9-11 Now with such a warning message as this with consequences so grievous as these, would God be fair and just if He were to leave us to guess and speculate as to what constitutes the ‘beast, his image and his mark’?Of course not! God is Love, and He is ‘not willing that any should perish but that all should come torepentance’ (2 Pet 3:9; Ezek 33:11) therefore He will make it very clear as to what the ‘beast’ is, and what itmeans to worship it and its image, and what it means to receive its ‘mark’. An important point to remember when studying the bible especially the book of Revelation (and other prophetic books) is that the bible is itsown interpreter. It is not up to man to tell us what he thinks it means but for God Himself to tell us what Hemeans. And this can only be done when we let the bible – the Word of God – explain itself. (See. 2 Pet1:19-21; Gen 41:15, 16; Dan 2:26-30 Jn 5:39) The rule of interpretation goes as follows, the bible explainsitself, scripture compared with scripture is the unerring guide, anything short of this, is presumption, and isworthy of being called “private interpretation”, which is condemned by the bible. (2 peter 1:20)The very fact we are told not to ‘worship’ this beast proves that God is talking about a religious power.This beast that we are not to worship is represented to us in the thirteenth chapter of Revelation beginningwith verse one. (Rev 14:9 Compare with Rev 13:12-14 & 3, 8)“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 tencrowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beastwhich 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 gavehim his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Rev 13:1, 2Have you ever seen an animal such as this in real life? Hence weknow that God is speaking symbolically. God is going to make thisso simple and straightforward that none will fail to see just what this beast symbolizes. It will shock some and encourage others to placetheir feet solidly upon the word of God.What is meant by the symbol of the sea?“And he saith unto me, The
waters
which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth,
are peoples, andmultitudes, and nations, and tongues.
(Rev 17:15)What does a beast symbolize?To answer this we turn to the book of Daniel – also a prophetic book dealing with beast and horns and alltypes of symbols. We read,“These great
beasts
, which are four, are four 
kings
, which shall arise out of the earth.” (Dan 7:17)So a beast in bible prophecy simply means a king. We continue, and it broadens it a little further,“Thus he said, The fourth
beast
shall be the fourth
kingdom
upon earth, which shall be diverse from allkingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.” (Dan 7:23)Here we see clearly then that a beast symbolizes
a king and his kingdom
! Put these two interpretationstogether we see a kingdom is to arise out of an area of densely populated of people, nations and tongues(different languages) are spoken. Straight away then we see that God is warning us of a religious kingdomthat we are not to worship, not to worship its image and not to receive its mark!This beast is made up of four other beasts: the leopard, bear, lion, and ten horns. And in Daniel chapter sevenagain these same beasts are here represented.

“Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, thefour winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. And four great beastscame up from the sea, diverse one from another.” (Dan 7:2, 3)Remember, how many metals were on the image of Daniel chapter two?Four. Here also the same four kingdoms are here spoken of and God istaking the same line of events but broadening it a bit.Winds are a symbol of war and strife. (Jer 49:36, 37; Rev 7:4) Thereforethese empires were to arise through much conflict and war with eachother. This we know when we read the history of these four huge worldempires. (Read Daniel 7:2-7)
Babylon (605 BC – 539 BC):
is symbolised by the lion with eagles’wings. Wings are a symbol of swiftness. (Jer 4:13; Hab 1:6-8)Even the ancient Babylonians themselves represented their kingdom as alion with eagles’ wings!Upon excavating the ruins of Babylon, lions with eagles wings werefound all over the ancient city!
Medo-Persia (539 BC – 331 BC):
is symbolised by the bear with three ribs its mouth, which raised itself upon the one side. “
Cyrus II the Great 
united 
the separate kingdoms around 539 BC. At this time, the Persianswere still tributary to the Median Empire ruled by Astyages. Cyrus rallied the Persians together, and in 550 BC defeated the forces of Astyages, who was then captured by his own nobles and turned over to thetriumphant Cyrus, now Shah of a
unified Persian kingdom
. As Persia assumed control over the rest of Media and their large empire, Cyrus led 
the united Medes and Persians
to still more conquest. He took  Lydia in Asia Minor, and carried his arms eastward into central Asia.
Finally in 539 BC 
 , Cyrus marched triumphantly into the ancient city of Babylon.”
(www.wikipedia.com) The unified Medes and Persians, withthe Persians first under Cyrus the Great, no doubt a fulfillment to the bear raising itself up on one side.
The Grecian Empire (331 BC – 146 BC):
is symbolized by the leopard with four heads and four wings of afowl. Alexander the Great conquered very swiftly and upon his death his kingdom was eventually dividedinto just four divisions. Lysimachus was king over Thrace and Asia Minor, Cassander king of Macedonia,Ptolemy I Soter king of Egypt, and Seleucus I Nicator King of East Asia.
The Roman Empire (146 BC – 476 AD):
is symbolized by the dreadful and terrible beast with ten horns.The ten horns we saw on the beast of Revelationthirteen, what do they symbolise? “And the
ten horns
 out of this kingdom are
ten kings
that shall arise: andanother shall rise after them; and he shall be diversefrom the first, and he shall subdue three kings.” (Dan7:24) When Rome fell it fell to exactly ten kings. TheGermanic tribes of the north came and violently took away the territories of the Western Roman Empire.

Daniel continues on in verse 8, “ I considered
the horns
, and, behold, there came up
among them
 
another
little
horn
, before whom there were
three of the first horns plucked up by the roots
: and, behold, in this hornwere eyes like the eyes of man, and a
mouth speaking great things
.It is important we follow this carefully as this next power that is later described is the same as the beast of Revelation thirteen. Notice the following identifying marks as given by the bible.
Point 1:
If Daniel is considering the horns, he is considering the ten kingdoms into which the WesternRoman Empire was divided, and he says, “…there came up among them another little horn…” A horn thus being a king or kingdom, a little horn would signify a little kingdom.
Point 2:
The fact that it came up ‘among them’ tells us that this little kingdom must come up after AD 476 because those ten kings weren’t in place till then and,
Point 3:
that it comes up in western Europe because that is where the ten kings are situated.
Point 4
: it Uproots or destroys (See also verse 24) three of these ten kings.
Point 5:
It spoke great things and verse twenty-five tells us it spoke great things against the Most High.(Revelation 13:5, “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies…” Whatconstitutes great words and blasphemies according to God?“When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. But there wascertain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies
? Who can forgive sins but God only? (Mark 2:5-8) Jesus can forgive sin because He is onewith God. But when a man claims to be able to have that divine right that is blasphemy.“I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many goodworks have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answeredhim, saying, For a good work we stone thee not;
but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man,makest thyself God
.” (Jn 10:31-33) Again Jesus can say such things because He is God, but when a manclaims to be God or one with God that is blasphemy. It is very simple already to see which kingdom the bibleis referring to. All you have to do is ask yourself which kingdom claims to have the power to forgive sins and be God? When you do that you have found the anti-Christ beast power!Daniel continues, “And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall riseafter them; and he shall be
diverse from the first 
, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak greatwords against the most High, and shall
wear out the saints of the most High
, and think to
change times and laws
: and they shall be given into his hand until a
time and times and the dividing of time
.” (Dan 7:25)
Point 6:
He shall be diverse or different from the ten kings.
Point 7:
He will wear out (war against or persecute [Rev 13:7]) God’s saints.
Point 8:
He will think to change God’s holy times and laws, and
