The Devil instructing the Antichrist

1. The Antichrist will be a man – Daniel 7:24-25
2. He will confirm a covenant for 7 years – Daniel 9:27
Now also, this does not mean that he creates this covenant. The word here for “confirm” is 1396 gabar (gaw-bar’); a primitive root; to be strong; by implication, to prevail, act insolently: KJV– exceed, confirm, be great, be mighty, prevail, put to more [strength], strengthen, be stronger, be valiant. The Antichrist will strengthen a covenant for a 7 year time span. Now this could be an existing covenant (like the Jerusalem Covenant) or a new covenant drawn up at that time.
3. He will rise among 10 kings – Daniel 7:8
This 10 nation union will be a revived Holy Roman Empire – Daniel 2:44
4. He will uproot 3 kings from the original 10 kings to gain political power – Daniel 7:8
5. His 10 nation union will merge into a world government which he will dominate – Revelations 13:1-2
Now this also, could refer to several things. First, the 10 nations could merge into an EXISTING world government, such as the U.N. Or it could for a new world government, much like the U.N. Or, this 10 nation confederation could be something like the new 10 nation common stock market. A union like this would definitely rule the world, without having a “seat” of power. Whoever controls the money, controls the globe.
6. He will ascend to power on a platform of peace. By peace, he will destroy many – Daniel 8:25
7. He will be promoted and exalted by a miracle-working religious partner (false prophet) – Revelations 13:11-12
8. He was, and is not, and yet is – Revelations 17:8
More than likely this is referring to political power. The Antichrist will have ruled, but then be taken out of power. Only to rise back up again to power as the head of the One World Government.
9. The world government over which he rules will be a red (communistic or socialistic) government – Revelations 17:14
10. The Antichrist will be preceded by 7 kings or rulers. He will be the 8th king. He will also be “of” the 7 – Revelations 17:11
Now this scripture has many different ways it can be viewed. The word “goeth” in the scripture is 5217 hupago (hoop-ag’-o); from 5259 and 71; to lead (oneself) under, i.e. withdraw or retire (as if sinking out of sight), literally or figuratively: KJV– depart, get hence, go (a-) way. So we see that he will withdraw or retire from sight. But will rise back up again to power. Now this could be taken as to mean 7 kings. Or this could be taken as 7 World Governments that have ruled. So far there have been 6. 1. Egypt. 2. Assyria. 3. Babylon. 4. Medo-Persia. 5. Greece. 6. Rome
11. He will have a mouth speaking great things. Very boastful – Daniel 7:8
12. His look will be more stout than his fellows – Daniel 7:20
The word “stout” means 7227 rab (rab); by contracted from 7231; abundant (in quantity, size, age, number, rank, quality): KJV– (in) abound (-undance, -ant, -antly), captain, elder, enough, exceedingly, full, great (-ly, man, one), increase, long (enough, [time]), (do, have) many (-ifold, things, a time), ([ship-]) master, mighty, more, (too, very) much, multiply (-tude), officer, often [-times], plenteous, populous, prince, process [of time], suffice (-lent). So this can have several meanings. It could mean one of the following: the Antichrist will be larger in size than everybody else, will be older than everybody else, will have more of a “following” than anybody else, is a higher military or political rank than anybody else, or is more qualified than anybody else. What ever this verse is speaking about, it is obvious when you look at him.
13. He will have a fierce countenance – Daniel 8:23
14. He will understand puzzling things – Daniel 8:23
15. He will cause craft to prosper – Daniel 8:25
It is interesting to note the definition of the word “craft” here. It is 4820 mirmah (meer-maw’); from 7411 in the sense of deceiving; fraud: KJV– craft, deceit (-ful, -fully), false, feigned, guile, subtilly, treachery. No wonder, for the Bible says that he is the father of lies. So his policy or his success will make it possible for his deception of the world to prosper. God said that if you do not believe the truth, that he would send strong delusion that you should believe a lie.
16. He apparently assumes world dominating power 3 1/2 years after he confirms the covenant. He then will continue to reign for 42 months – Revelations 13:5
17. The Abomination of Desolation is the event that signals the beginning of this final 42 months – Daniel 9:27
It is interesting to note, that many scholars believe that at the Abomination of Desolation is when Revelations 12:7-10 occurs. At which point the Antichrist becomes “possessed” by Satan himself and then forces the Mark or death upon everybody.
18. He opposes God – 2 Thessalonians 2:4
19. He will speak marvelous things against the God of gods – Daniel 11:36
20. He will exalt himself above all that is called God – 2 Thessalonians 2:4
21. He will sit in the temple of God – 2 Thessalonians 2:4
22. He will claim to be God (or an incarnation of God) – 2 Thessalonians 2:4
23. He will take away the daily sacrifices from the temple – Daniel 11:31
24. He will plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain – Daniel 11:45
It would seem here that the Antichrist will setup small “fortifications” in between the sea and Jerusalem, to help keep control over things in distant areas away from the main offices.
25. He will have power to make war with the saints and to overcome them – Revelations 13:7
26. He will continue this war with the saints for 3 1/2 years – Daniel 7:21, 25
27. This time of Great Tribulation is launched upon the Earth by the Antichrist at the Abomination of Desolation. – Matthew 24:15,21.
Up until this time, it would seem that he is a man of peace and not war. But now he shows his true colors. Perhaps is possessed by Satan himself at this point as well. Which would account for the false front being dropped at this time.
28. During this time, the Antichrist will scatter the power of the holy people – Daniel 12:7
29. He will rule a mighty and strong kingdom – Daniel 7:7
30. He was given power over all kindreds, tongues and nations – Revelations 13:7
31. His kingdom will devour the whole earth – Daniel 7:23
32. He will have great military power that will stand behind him, to enforce his laws – Daniel 11:31
33. He will try to change times and laws; and they will be given into his power for 3 1/2 years – Daniel 7:25
34. He will give great honor to the God of forces, with gold, silver, jewels, etc – Daniel 11:38
35. He will prosper in everything that he does – Daniel 8:24
36. He will not regard the God of his fathers – Daniel 11:37
37. He will not regard the desire of women – Daniel 11:37
It is interesting to note here that most people think that he will be a homosexual, which could be. But rather I think that he will place limitations upon children being born. Similar to what is being done in China now. Why? Because it is the natural desire of a woman, that God has given to them, to be a mother. By not regarding this natural desire, he would cause a “forced” limit on the amount of children a woman was “allowed” to have.
38. The mark of the beast will be the amount of his name – Revelations 14:11
39. All that dwell upon the Earth will worship him, except those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life – Revelations 15:2
40. He will have an image made after him – Revelations 15:2
This could also be in reference to his kingdom’s logo or insignia. Much like the U.N. has a logo that every soldier on a U.N. mission must wear, there might also be a logo or insignia that his armies would have to wear. His coming will be after the workings of Satan – 2 Thessalonians 2:8
41. He will fight against Jesus Christ at Armageddon (and lose I might add!) – Revelations 17:14
42. He will stand against the Prince of princes – Daniel 8:25
43. The Lord will consume him with the spirit of his mouth (which is the Word of God) – 2 Thessalonians 2:8
44. The Lord will destroy him with the brightness of his coming (which is his glory) – 2 Thessalonians 2:8
45. He will be cast alive into the lake of fire – Revelations 19:20
46. He will be tormented day and night for ever and ever – Revelations 20:10
