The Eighth Chapter Of Daniel
One of the things I tried to emphasize in A Brief Look At Tomorrow was the fact that the Bible always explains itself. What it tells you in a verse in one chapter can always be found in more detail in some other part of the book. I chose the eighth chapter of Daniel to illustrate this for the following reasons. One, because it deals with the identity of the Antichrist. Two, because it explains where he comes from and how he comes to power. And three, it lays the ground work for understanding what the Bible says in Revelation chapter seventeen.
The study of prophecy over the past several years seems to have developed two sides from which to argue the same outcome. Bible scholars point their fingers at the prophecies of Nostradamus and say his visions are not of God therefore he is a liar. I don't believe that to be the case and although I think we more than proved how accurate he is in One if By Land, Two If By See, we will prove it in this article as well. There is no denying that his visions were obtained using occult methods, but that doesn't make him dishonest, it just makes those who have previously tried to interpret him wrong.
It is also my opinion that Bible scholars would better serve their own objectives by not ignoring such a valuable resource of information. The Bible makes it quite clear that we all face an enemy, which deceives the whole world, yet church leaders somehow don't believe the word whole also applies to them. They act as if they're exempt from deception, so I would just remind them about the wise men from the East. The religious leaders of Herod's time thought they knew everything too, but they missed the signs that should have told them that Jesus had just been born. So if I were one of you experts, I'd quit posturing for a better position within my own hierarchy long enough to realize just how vulnerable my backside looks sticking that far up in the air.
The Nostradamus research community brought these attacks on itself by misinterpreting what he said. First they say he predicts the coming of Napoleon and Hitler, antichrist's one and two. Then they say he predicts a third world conqueror from the Middle East, putting his forecast 180 degrees from his two previous predictions. It's true that Nostradamus did foretell the coming of a man that would become what other interpreters call, the third and final Antichrist, but he did not say that he was a man from the Middle East. The quatrain which verifies what I'm telling you is C2 Q2, which says, The blue leader will inflict upon the white leader, As much evil as France has done them them good: Death from the great antenna hanging from the branch, When he is seized, the King will ask how many of his men are captured.
Several years ago when the theory of the third and final Antichrist was first put forth, you could maybe make an argument that Nostradamus was talking about a middle eastern warlord wearing a blue turban. But in light of recent events, specifically the war in Yugoslavia, that theory no longer floats. He was obviously talking about a leader of United Nations/NATO forces when he said blue leader. The white leader is the middle eastern warlord that everyone seems to have mistaken for the Antichrist, and we have already discussed that he is a decoy in One If By Land, Two If By See.
Line two is a reference to the Crusades and an earlier allied European force that invaded the Middle East in 1099 AD. French troops became the first Western forces to occupy the Holy Land, and since Nostradamus was born in France and raised in the Catholic faith, I believe that he was referring to both when he said, France has done them good. French occupation allowed the Church to control the Holy Land and begin converting the heretic faiths to their brand of Christianity.
Death from the great antenna hanging from the branch, means that the blue leader (of a future allied European force), will be dropping nuclear bombs on the white leader and his people. The early nuclear tests performed by the United States were done with the explosive device suspended from a steel tower that resembled a broadcast antenna. The King that is seized or captured will be the middle eastern warlord (the white leader) because Daniel 11:25 tells us that after he is stirred up to battle, he shall not stand, for they shall forecast devices against him. The real Antichrist will defeat the decoy because he planned to do so in advance.
Nostradamus tells us exactly who the real Antichrist is in his epistle to Henry II when he says, Gallic Ogmios will be accompanied by so great a number that the Empire of his great law will extend very far. For some time thereafter the blood of the innocent will be shed profusely by the recently elevated guilty ones. For those who have already read my book, you know who Ogmios is, and that he can be identified by his great law that Nostradamus refers to. The blood of the innocent being shed profusely is the mass murder of millions in the Middle East by so great a number, which is an army of NATO forces. Daniel 8:25 backs this theory up when it tells us that the Antichrist, by peace shall destroy many. It is Western leaders that are pushing for a peace agreement in the Middle East, and some of them do so to mask their real motive, world hegemony.
Before I go any further I want to discuss what Nostradamus said about the recently elevated guilty ones because he has connected the guilty ones to the Empire of Ogmios, more commonly referred to as the kingdom of Antichrist. At the top of the article I said that Daniel chapter eight lays the ground work for understanding what is said in Revelation chapter seventeen, and chapter seventeen describes a conspiracy among kings without kingdoms.
Revelation 17:12 says, And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. Webster defines beast as a vile person or someone who is morally base. Because the Bible is referring to the Antichrist as a person without honor, I think its safe to assume that the ten horns are men that put their own interests ahead of honor as well. Since horn is defined as the upper part of the body or head, I think the Bible is explaining that ten men of influence from countries within the United Nations will conspire with the Antichrist to seize control of the world. Revelation 17:13 verifies this by telling us that they have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. Although their conspiracy will be a criminal act, they will successfully hide this fact by manipulating the world into war, and the guilty ones will be elevated to new positions of even greater power.
The Antichrist's kingdom will be divided into ten sections and each horn will control one with the Antichrist overseeing the whole empire. This hierarchy is symbolic and represents the fact that all eleven conspirators foretold in Daniel 7:7-8 are united, and unity is represented by the number one. That's why their symbol is a triangle (the symbol for ten) with a single eye inside it to represent the eleven as one. Ones and zeros are most important in unmasking the Antichrist, because according to the Pythagoreans or Greeks, the number one emerged from nothing or zero, and gives rise to everything that follows it. The number one also represents Zeus, the father of all Greek gods, and Zeus is referred to in the Bible by both Daniel and Jesus as the abomination of desolation. Jesus told us specifically to watch for a repeat of this event at the time of the end, because it marks the end, which shall be at the time appointed, Daniel 11:27. I discussed this in A Brief Look At Tomorrow, but for the benefit of those that haven't read the book yet, here is why the Jewish people especially were told to watch.
The original abomination performed by Satan can be found in Isaiah 14:13. For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. This offense and nothing less performed by the Antichrist will be the event that triggers the full wrath of God in the last days. This was confirmed when Antiochus IV placed a statue of Zeus in the temple of God and worshipped it. Since the statue had no heart it couldn't think the words of Satan above, thus the abomination of a graven image being worshipped by Gentiles in the temple of God wasn't enough to trigger the earth's destruction. For this reason I believe the statue of Zeus being worshipped in the temple had another purpose. God is using this event from the past to warn future generations by telling them what to watch for in the last days. Satan will bring on the wrath of God at the end of time by worshipping an image of himself in Jerusalem while saying in his heart, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God.
Jesus specifically warned the people of Israel to take heed and learn the signs given by Daniel the prophet and Himself, because those that do not learn them will not be ready and consequently will not be removed from Zion on that day by Him in what has come to be known as the Rapture. If you are not removed from Zion prior to the time appointed you will then face the full wrath of God in a catastrophic event similar to the one that happened between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2, which Luke 17:29 likens to the fate of Sodom, where it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Getting back now to the main topic of discussion, in Revelation 17:10 we are told that, there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes he must continue a short space. Revelation 17:10 is referring to an ancient sequence of kingdoms foretold in Daniel chapter seven that lead to the kingdom of the Antichrist. The first kingdom in the sequence is that of Nimrod at the tower of Babel. He is described along with the Antichrist of the last days in Daniel 8:5-25.
"Behold, a he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth. The fact that the goat came out of the west is a significant clue in tracking down and identifying the Antichrist also, because Nimrod first traveled west from Iraq to build the city of Babel in Egypt where he was enlightened by the sons of God before he expanded his empire eastward to the land that he came from. Daniel 8:21 then tells us that the Antichrist will be identical to Nimrod in that he will do exactly the same thing. Because they are identical in their approach to world conquest, we must look closer at what was said in Daniel 8:8, where looking for the knowledge of Nimrod, came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. We're being told in this verse that the ancestors of the Antichrist will first take his lineage west into the realm of Grecia, then like Nimrod he will return home to the Middle East in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, Daniel 8:23.
In Revelation 17:11 we are told that, the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven. This verse is verifying what I just said about Satan and the original abomination that makes desolate. Satan was in a physical body that was destroyed prior to Genesis 1:2. He showed up afterward at the garden of Eden to begin anew and had his plans thwarted by the flood in Noah's time. After the flood he joined up with Nimrod at the tower of Babel to lay the foundation for his return in our time. The knowledge taught to men at the tower of Babel was then carried forth to become a part of the culture in the next five nations of the sequence, culminating in nation number seven, the Antichrist's place of birth. He will rise to prominence within his native land first and then begin to create an eighth kingdom with the ten horns that will engulf the whole world.
In Daniel 7:8 we are told how these eleven conspirators successfully consolidate all of the nations of the world into one. I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another little horn, (a nation younger than them) 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 man, and a mouth speaking great things. The first three horns or kingdoms from the sequence of nations in the books of Daniel and Revelation are from the Middle East. In Daniel 8:9 we were told that the Antichrist becomes great by invading the lands south, east, and toward the pleasant land. If the pleasant land is Israel, then this verse confirms that World War III will take place in the Middle East. Therefore in wrapping this article up, I must repeat the warning given in One If By Land, Two If By See.
The forces of the Blue Star are here making preparations for the final battle, fulfilling a sign that was given by Jesus in Matthew 24:37-39. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For in the days that were before the flood they (the sons of God) were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark. This was a direct reference by Jesus to Genesis 6:4-5, which says, There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God (fallen angels) came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them...And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. World War III is one such thought, and it is a tool of deception that they will use to fool mankind into believing the final battle has just been fought. That is the job of the conspirators foretold in Daniel chapter eight and Revelation chapter seventeen. To create the illusion that the Evil One is from the Middle East so that Western culture will unite behind the real Antichrist in his quest to destroy the decoy.
The real Antichrist is a man from the West who will rise to dominate all nations because the world will approve of his destruction of the Arab and Israeli people in Daniel 8:24, which says, he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. The mighty people are of Arab descent from the countries of Nimrod's former empire, and the holy people are Jewish living in the land of Israel. This agrees exactly with what Nostradamus predicted in quatrain C2 Q2. The blue leader will inflict upon the white leader as much evil as France has done them good. Death from the great antenna hanging from the branch...
