And thanks for replying to last e-mail (about 7 thunders) so quick, and by the way, have you ever read any of A.E. Wilder-Smith's books? (No) They're not eschatological, but what i've read they are excellent thinking about how believing in Jesus changes your heart and mind, and how atheist views are schizophrenic..Sounds like milk from Hb 5:13, but it's so very tasty milk.
Maranatha (..i think that i can already hear Him coming, i have this feeling that it's only blink of an eye away :)
A Study of the Book of Daniel, by Brother Sal
...He sealed it until it's time. That's what makes Daniel's prophecy the key to the end times. When it finally shows up on the stage, then you know positively that it is unsealed, and that our redemption is even at the door....
the seven year period portrayed, locked up in Daniel, can now be seen, and is trying desperately to begin, but it's being restrained, and can't begin, until the restraining force is removed. That restraining force is the Church, and the Rapture is how it's removed.
###I agree. The church is the salt of the Earth. Mt. 5:13 says, "Ye (i.e., the wise virgins, Mt. 25:1f) are THE SALT OF THE EARTH: but if the salt have lost his savour (i.e., become foolish virgins), wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but TO BE CAST OUT (spewed out of Christ's mouth at the Rapture, Rev. 3:10,16), and to be trodden under foot of men" (during the Tribulation).
Now that that time has arrived, the meaning of the prophecy is so obvious that is seems too simple...
There will be a total of nine kingdoms that grow on the land about which God prophesies - The Mideast. By the time Daniel comes on the scene two of them have already done their part and moved on - Egypt and Assyria....
The historical trail is remarkably clear, so those living in the time, foretold as the end times, will know that they are, by seeing the prophesied events occurring on the prophesied landscape, that are prophesied to occur at no other time. Simple! When you see this, know this!....
The sign of Daniel paints the whole landscape on which the Messiah returns to set up the everlasting kingdom...
The Mideast is the stage, and the present day players are acting out their part with God pulling the strings. Don't miss it! Watch it closely right up to the day He comes for us....
And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. Whereas thou sawest iron mixed with clay, they shall mingle, and in the days of these kings, (a mixture of kingdoms, some strong as iron, like the Romans, others weakly united, shall be formed is an out growth of the Roman portion of the Moslem Empire. Wherever this iron kingdom spreads it's influence, take a map, ancient geography, and whatever part of the Moslem Empire that the Roman kingdom had spreads to, out of that territory, will come a ten toed kingdom, a confederacy of kings, and here's the important line,) IN THE DAYS OF THESE KINGS, the confederacy of ten, shall the God of heaven, set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed.
That has happened! Therefore, where are we in the prophecy.
###I don't think his so called "Moslem Empire" is to be the 10 toes of Nebuchadnezzar's image. This is the first time I have heard of this idea. I think the 10 kings will be over the 10 regions of the world that it has already been divided into. All the empires Daniel told us about are so-called world empires. In Dan. 2:38, Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar, "wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field ('The field is the world,' Mat 13:38) and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all."
The key text - in the time of these ten toed kings, the confederacy of ten, God will set up his eternal kingdom. God has not done that yet. Therefore there has to be a gap of time, between this iron kingdom, Rome, and the confederacy of ten kings that will put itself together at the time of the end....
###I think the empires are continuous from Babel to the third Babylon. At the time of the Pre-Trib Rapture, Rev. 17:10-14 tells us that these empires are the "seven mountains, on which the woman (Mystery Religion of Babylon) sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen (kings of Babel, Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, Rome, all carrying the title Pontifex Maximus), and one is (the Pope, Pontifex Maximus, head of Ecclesiastical Rome, The Beast of Rev. 13:2-10; 20:10), and the other (False Prophet, Rev. 13:11-18; 22:10) is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space (the shortened Great Tribulation, Mt. 24:21,22). And the beast (Satan) that was (in Judas Iscariot, 'son of perdition,' John 17:12), and is not (in man at the Rapture), even he is the eighth (the tail of the great red dragon), and is of the seven (controls them), and goeth into perdition (inhabits the False Prophet, 'son of perdition,' II Thess. 2:3). And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet (at the Rapture); but receive power as kings one hour with the beast (Tribulation Pope, the Beast of Rev. 22:10). These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast (Tribulation Pope). These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him (called up in the Pre-Trib Rapture) are called, and chosen, and faithful."
###The wise Philadelphian virgins will be raptured. The foolish Laodicean virgins will be left behind.
...in Daniels first utterance to Nebuchadnezzar, he simply sees the head, the breast, the belly, the thighs and legs that flow from this kingdom of evil, and he skips over the gap, and makes one large leap, that in the last days, before God sets up his kingdom, which is the stone kingdom, which lasts forever, there will be formed a confederacy of ten nations in the area of the Moslem Empire covered by the Old Roman Empire.
###The 10 kings are to be over the 10 regions of the world, not just the "Moslem Empire."
...If you only look at Daniel 2, all you have to look for to know when we are standing at the edge of the last days, is a 10 unit confederacy that grows out of the Roman portion of the Moslem Empire. I don't believe it is the European community. The reason being, this isn't the only prophecy....
###I don't think it is the EU either. I believe it is the UN, or OWG, that will build its headquarters at Babylon, Iraq.
Daniels first prophecy lays out the kingdoms that flow from Babylon. It is not a picture of world history. It only pictures the kingdoms that are the outgrowth of that stream that flows from Babylon to Medo-Persia, to Greece, to Rome, to Moslem, and a final kingdom, whose fundamental aim is the destruction of God's chosen people, the Jews!
###I think the 7 kingdoms represent world empires. The 6th king is the Tribulation Pope, the Beast. The 7th head is the False Prophet. The eighth is Satan himself. After the Day of God's Wrath, he will come out of the False Prophet and operate on his own until he is chained and put in his prison, the bottomless pit (Rev. 10:1-3).... Prophecy again: Vs.17 These great beasts which are four, ar four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. (Now, there is one school of prophecy that says these beasts cannot be identical to the image of the head, shoulders, belly and legs, because Nebuchadnezzar is already dead! His kingdom is already fallen and his successor is there. It's the first year of Belshazzar. And, if Nebuchadnezzar's kingdom is already fulfilled, and came into existence, and a successor sits on the throne, how can the lion refer to Babylon?, because it says, "these kingdoms shall arise". Future - that makes sense, doesn't it?
You don't say these four kingdoms "shall arise", when one is already established. That's why the King James needs some corrections. Every instance of the verb being translated, exclusively means: to get up to leave. "Shall arise" does not mean, to come into existence. "Shall arise" in the original verb is exclusively used to translate someone who gets up in order that they might leave.
This could be translated to say that these 4 kingdoms come into existence so they can pass form the scene. They are not permanent - they come, so they can go!...
Babylon was there, but it hadn't yet gotten up to go! It thought it was around forever, but the beasts in the vision announces there are four kingdoms including the one of Belshazzar, that is the existing successor to Nebuchadnezzar, and they are going to get up on the stage of history and leave.... ###I think that if Nebuchadnezzar was the head of gold in Dan. 2:38, the lion in Dan. 7:4 stands for the Neo-Babylonian Empire that started with Nebuchadnezzar.
This little horn who comes up and uproots three of the ten horns that grow out of the nondescript beast, as the feet and toes are attached to the iron legs, the horns grow out of the nondescript beast, the iron legs being Rome, the nondescript beast being Rome, and feet being the Moslem Empire, the ten toes and the ten horns being a confederacy of ten out of the Roman portions of the Moslem Empire. The Little Horn is added in this vision. From within the territory of the ten, he will rise up, uproot three of the ten, and establish a kingdom, that now we are told, will last, given absolute power, for a period of three and a half years, after which his kingdom will be destroyed, and the kingdom of the saints eternal will be established.
So, once again we have our clue. This ten toed kingdom, in the days of those kings, the stone kingdom will be established. In the beastly vision, in the area of the ten member confederacy, an 11th one, not very big, a nondescript little horn will rise up, uproot three of the ten, have absolute power for three and a half years and then he will be put down as the kingdom of the saints, which is the equivalent of the stone kingdom is established to last forever....
###I believe that the legs of the image in Nebuchadnezzar's dream are Rome. When Imperial Rome ceased to be, Ecclesiastic Rome took over. There is no gap. Ecclesiastic Rome in still in power today. It is like the skin that holds the nations of the feet together. The 10 toes seem to be the 10 regions that the whole world has already been divided into. The iron parts of the feet and toes represents Ecclesiastic Rome. The clay represents other nations.
But the passage before us only tells us this: from Babylon to Medo-Persia to Greece to Rome, then a gap of time, then another kingdom (the feet - The Moslem empire), and growing out of it (the toes), a confederacy of ten, from out of the Roman portion.
###The body of the image is all connected. There is no gap. The toes are divisions of the whole world, not just the "Moslem empire".
And in the 2nd prophecy, out of the confederacy of ten, a little kingdom will uproot three, be given absolute power for three and a half years and then in both cases, during the period of the ten member confederacy, in the first prophecy, during the time and after the three and a half years reign of the little horn, who uprooted, comes the eternal kingdom. These ten member confederacy nations bring us to the last days and the little horn, who is none other than Antichrist.
###To me, the feet represent Ecclesiastic Rome. The Pope is head of the Roman Catholic (meaning universal, i.e., world) church. Zech. 5:6 says, "what is this that goeth forth. And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah (largest wheat measure, i.e., largest church, for believers are wheat, Mt. 13:25,38) that goeth forth (headquarters to be moved from Rome to Babylon). He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth." This ephah is to be moved. Zech. 5:10,11 says, "Whither do these bear the ephah? And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar (Babylon, Gen. 11:2; Dan. 1:2): and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base" (the Tower of Babel).
###I think the Tribulation Pope will become the Beast of Rev. 13:2-10 and 20:10. I expect him to become the head of both the UN (United Nations) and UR (United Religions). In Rev. 13:4, "they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast (no one)? who is able to make war with him?" They think no one, and he will ride on the scene at the beginning of the Tribulation as a prince of peace (the white horse of Rev. 6:2). Rev. 13:6,7 says he will blaspheme God and "them that dwell in Heaven" (those that were caught up in the Pre-Trib Rapture). And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (the foolish virgins that were spewed out of Christ's mouth at the Pre-Trib Rapture), and to overcome them (the Tribulation saints): and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."
...Daniels image didn't show a gap, Daniels image didn't show the little horn, and the specifics of his power after uprooting three. Daniels image and the beastly prophecy didn't show the gap, but the beastly prophecy added the detail of the little horn, and the uprooting of three.
###I think that there is no gap. Rome became Ecclesiastic Rome with it's eastern and western divisions, the two legs.
...iron legs, again, two parts, as the Roman empire broke into 2 parts, then there is a gap, necessitated, by the conclusions of the time up to the confederacy. A great gap that lasts until you see ten kingdoms born in a confederacy in an ancient Roman Empire area of the Moslem Empire. When that happens, get ready for the end. Get more ready for the end, when you can identify the little horn's kingdom, and it is the outgrowth of one of the four kingdoms into which Greece split. Get really concerned when the little horn, from that territory of the ten, uproots three.
###We will be in Heaven before the 10 kings get their kingdoms. Rev. 17:12,13 says, "the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast."...
Of the four kingdoms, two of them are constantly warring - the Seleucid's and the Ptolemy's of Egypt. And in the prophecy given by the Angel, the Seleucid king, the one in the Middle East, grows to power, and out of the Seleucid kingdom comes a ruler, that is identified in a subsequent chapter as Antichrist.
Therefore, when is Antichrist going to come on the scene? He will appear on the scene, when there is a ten member confederacy formed...
###The Bible calls the first beast of Rev. 13 "the beast" in Rev. 10:2.10. It doesn't call him the Antichrist. Therefore I think the Tribulation Pope is The Beast, and the 2nd beast of Rev. 13 is the False Prophet, The Antichrist. He is the one that is demon-possessed. 1Jo 2:22 says, "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son." The Pope doesn't deny the Father and the Son. 1Jo 4:3 says, "every spirit (including Satan)that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit (Satan) of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world." 2Jo 1:7 says, "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an ANTICHRIST."
###To me, this rules out the Pope as being The final Antichrist. He blasphemes God's name (Rev. 13:6), but he doesn't deny the Father. He doesn't deny that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh either. The False Prophet will do both. He will be an unconverted Jew.
###When Christ brings the curse (asteroid) to hit Earth, Zech. 5:4 says, "I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts (Christ, Isa. 44:6), and it shall enter into the house of the thief (the False Prophet is a thief like Judas Iscariot, the FP will steal and confiscate bank accounts of those that won't take the Mark of the Beast), and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name (the Pope claims infallibility): and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof."
Where will Antichrist come from? He will come from the territory of this ten member confederacy, and he will not come through world war. Now there seems to be a great fear that a nuclear holocaust will wipe us off the face of the earth, or that some world war will come, or that the time of the end will come when Russia comes down on the Middle east.
There won't be any world war, there won't be any nuclear holocaust. The end of time is not going to approach until, in the area of the confederacy, a little horn, in a local war, uproots three. That local war, where the little horn uproots three, is placed by the ram and the goat prophecy, in the territory of the Seleucid portion of Alexander's kingdom.
Don't look for it in the split up of the European common market, the center of the conflict that causes Antichrist to come to power is in the territory of that one horn of the four horns that replaced Alexander the Great, the Seleucid territory - Western Iran, Iraq, Southern Turkey, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan - out of that territory, that's the Seleucid kingdom. That's the horn, that later, in Daniel 11, will conquer and prevail over the Ptolemy's. The little horn must come out of the territory of the Seleucid King.
Therefore, since the little horn grows up, uprooting three of the ten, the confederacy of the ten, must at least extend to, if not be centered in the area of the Middle east. When one rises up in that area, being the territory of the Seleucid horn of the Grecian Kingdom, when one rises up in that area, in a local war, not a world war, and uproots three of these horns that comprise the confederacy, that must be enveloped by at least the Seleucid kingdom, then, we are at the door of the end....
###I think we are almost at the "open door" (Rev. 3:8) of Heaven (Rev. 4:1), but I don't remember Scripture saying where the 3 horns will be from. Since I think they will be over the 10 regions of the world, each will probably be from the region he heads up.
Know this, Antichrist will not be revealed (to the Jews) until the Church that restrains him is taken out of the way, and as we will see, he is close enough to be able to identify the kingdom into which he will move, and uproot three, and assert his power in that kingdom, and they will give it to him....
###I agree that the Antichrist (False Prophet) will not be revealed until after the Rapture takes place. Rev. 13:12 shows that the False Prophet will "exerciseth all the power of the first beast." To me, this shows that the False Prophet, like The Beast, will be over the UN and UR. He will obtain it by flatteries, not war. Dan 11:21 says, "in his estate shall stand up a vile person (the False Prophet), to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries" (probably smooth talk, like a con artist). Isa 30:10 says, "Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceit."
Now the book of revelations proceeds through seven seals, seven trumpets and seven vials. And those seven seals unleash, and the seven trumpets announce, and the seven vials pour out, the wrath of God.
###The wrath of God does not arrive until after the 6th seal is opened (Rev. 6:12) on the last day of this age. Rev. 6:17 says, "For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? That probably is 6 PM on Tishri 1, 5758 (Sept. 13, 2007). Between the beginning of that Feast of Trumpets and the asteroid impacts of Rev. 8:8,10 at noon (Zeph. 2:4,5), the Pre-Wrath Rapture will take place (Rev. 7:9,14). The Wrath of God starts when the 7th seal releases the 7 trumpet judgments in Rev. 8:1,2. So the Pre-Trib Rapture is between the 6th and 7th seals. God's wrath includes all 7 vails that fill up the wrath of God.
###The trumpet judgments all happen on the Feast of Trumpets. The vials are the results of that wrath over some extended time. For instance, when the "great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea (at the 2nd trumpet)...the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea (the Meditterranean, Zeph. 2:4,5), and had life, died" (Rev. 8:8,9). When the 2nd vial is poured out, the Mediterranean Sea "became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea" (Rev. 16:3).
There are lots of Christians that stay confused over the act of tribulation, because Jesus says that in the world you shall have tribulation, and there are Christians that have suffered great tribulation, and nobody wants to tell the Church in China, or the church on main street, that they won't go through tribulations.... But, the saints in Christ are not appointed unto Wrath, because the body of Christ suffered wrath once, finished it for our sins, so, we'll be lifted out of the way at the Rapture....
###Also, there is a difference between the tribulations that we have now and the time of trouble "which shall come upon all the world" (Rev. 3:10). This "shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time (Day of God's Wrath, when the False Prophet will come to his end, Dan. 11:45) thy people (144,000 Jews, Rev. 7:1-8) shall be delivered (malat, RESCUED, ESCAPE, LEAP OUT), every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake" (Dan. 12:1,2). Along with these Jews, a great multitude out of all nations will be raptured (Rev. 7:9,14). These come out of the Great Tribulation, the last half of the 70th week of Daniel.
The spirit of Antichrist is at work in the land, and he cannot come to power, until that restraining force, that restrains him from full revelation, is taken out of the way. That's the act called Rapture. It also shows us that we will never see the Antichrist! We are holding him back. So, he won't be here until after we are gone!
###He surely is born and grows up on Earth. We may have seen him, but he is not revealed as the Antichrist until he confirms the covenant of Dan. 9:27 with many.
Rapture simply means: catching away. You only find the word once in the New Testament, that's were it says in the book of Acts, that Philip was caught away from the Gaza strip, and appeared in Azotus. That swift movement, and placement in another area, has come to be used as the word for the catching away of the saints.
###There are 5 uses of harpazo, translated caught up, or caught away in the KJV:
(1) In Acts 8:39, the Spirit of the Lord caught away (harpazo, plucked, took up by force, seized and carried away suddenly, transported hastily) Philip...the eunuch saw him no more...But Philip was found at Azotus"(strong place).
(2) II Cor. 12:2: "I knew a man (Paul himself) in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up (harpazo) to the third heaven."
(3) II Cor. 12:4: "How that he was caught up (harpazo) into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."
(4) I Thess. 4:17: "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up (harpazo) together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
(5) Rev. 12:5: "she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up (harpazo) unto God, and to his throne."
When that restraining force is gone, then Paul says to the Thessalonians, that man of sin shall be revealed. And that man has become to be called Antichrist. Antichrist simply means, substitute deliverer. Christ being deliverer. Satan always has his substitute. Antichrist is a substitute deliverer for the Christ who will come. But when Christ comes this next time, He's coming to save the Jews from total destruction, so the Antichrist is a substitute deliverer for the Jews - the false deliverer that blinds them, who would have them completely destroyed but for the arrival of Christ, who shortens the day so that some of them might live.
###He shortens the Great Tribulation, Mt. 24:21,22.
The man on the white horse in Revelation 6, is but the substitute for the man on the white horse that will come, called faithful and true. This man on the white horse in Revelations 6 starts the wrath of God. The seal is opened, first of seven, and the man on the white horse comes out and he has a bow and no arrow....
###The Tribulation begins when the False Prophet confirms the covenant of Dan. 9:27 with many. That is at the same time that The Beast rides forth as a prince of peace.
the first event of that great outpouring of God's wrath will be the appearance of this man of peace, on a white horse, bow and no arrow!
###God's Wrath does not start until Rev. 6:17.
...(Rev. 17) Vs. 3 describes - the beast full of names of blasphemy, having SEVEN HEADS & TEN HORNS. Now we have the seven heads and ten horns again. That beast of revelations, symbolizes in one great beast, what the separate beasts had broken down into parts.
Vs.7 The angel tells him: I'm going to tell you the mystery of this beast having seven heads and ten horns. Vs.9 The seven heads are seven mountains. Now some people say that because there are seven mountains in Rome, Rome is being talked about here - we'll see. Vs 10 There are SEVEN KINGS (now, whose writing this? - John, the revelator, on the isle of Patmos, in the first century. Who ruled the world in the first century? - The Roman Empire. - the Empire was symbolized by the Legs of iron, symbolized by the nondescript beast, the Empire that would follow the Goat. This Roman Empire is ruling while John is writing.)
### The Revelation of Jesus Christ was written as if the Rapture were at hand. It is "at hand" in both the first and last chapters (1:3, 22:10). Jesus signs off with "Surely I come quickly." He comes quickly at the Rapture (Rev. 3:11). Chapter 17 is just after the Rapture has happened, when "they that ARE with him are Called, and chosen, and faithful" (Rev. 17:14). It is when the "ten kings...have received NO KINGDOM AS YET" (Rev. 17:12). The Empire that IS at the time of the Rapture is Ecclesiastical Rome, headed by the Pope. The five empires that have fallen are (1) Babel, (2) Babylon II, (3) Media-Persia, (4) Greece and (5) the old Roman Empire.
Now, read vs. 10 - there are seven kings, five are fallen, one is - well we know what the one is - Rome - five are fallen before Rome, is that what it says? And it's the same beast with seven heads that symbolized seven kings, five are fallen, one is, the other is not yet come. Ok, Rome is the one that IS in Johns day, and because five are fallen, Rome is number six! Number seven is not here yet, in Johns day. When he (number seven) cometh, he must continue a short space. Old number seven, he doesn't get much time. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is of the eighth! Now what is that referring to?
Alright, go back to the 7th verse. The angel said unto me, I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, which I can tell you is the false church, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns, vs8 the beast that thou sawest was, is not, and shall arise out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition. And they that dwell upon the earth shall wonder....
The beast that thou sawest WAS (that's pre John), and IS NOT (he is not around ruling when John is writing this), and SHALL ASCEND, that means it's yet to come, (where does he come from?), from out of the bottomless pit, and shall go into perdition. Now there is only one word in the New Testament that is translated variously as darkness, pit, bottomless pit, and occasionally abyss. But, only one word is being translated - ABYSS....
###Satan, the great red dragon of Rev. 12:3, is the "beast that thou sawest. He will be "cast out into the earth" (Rev. 12:9) Mid-Trib. Then he will come up out of the bottomless pit and enter into the False Prophet.
In Daniel, because the prophecy starts with the head, that section of history is focused on and what follows, narrows to Medo-Persia, and Grecia in the third prophecy, but in revelation, we go back to two previous kingdoms that competes the history of those beastly kingdoms that oppressed the seed of Abraham, who were, Egypt, first, and second Assyria, that carried the northern kingdoms and most of Judah into bondage, then Babylon was number three, then Medo-Persia was number four, then Grecia was number five, then Rome was number six, then the GAP, then there comes a short time Kingdom (the seventh (Feet) - The Moslem Empire, followed by a ruler into whom the same demon that possessed Alexander the Great will enter (the eighth (Toes) out of the seventh, and when that kingdom is set up, thank God we'll be gone.
###I think the 7 heads of the great red dragon are the kings of (1) Babel, (2) Babylon II, (3) Media-Persia, (4) Greece, (5) Rome (6) The Beast, the Pontifex Maximus, head of Ecclesiastic Rome, also the UN and the UR (7) the False Prophet, final head of the UN and UR housed at Babylon III). All of these carry the title Pontifex Maximus.
###We should be raptured before the one that is to be the False Prophet confirms the covenant.
...The Antichrist comes in peace, not war, originally. And, he's described with a strange trait. One of his heads was wounded as to death, and his deadly wound was healed. Now go to Revelation 17....
###The Beast is the 6th head of the great red dragon. There is a chance that he is the present Pope, who was shot in an attempted assassination, and that wound was healed.
