TRUTH ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST. 4. He will come from the revived Roman Empire, the fourth beast, which is Western Europe or its offshoot. Dan. 7:8 says, “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 horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things”. Verse 19-22 of this scripture says, “Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass, which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet … until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. Verse 22 of this scripture confirms that the victory of the beast is going to be momentary. Whatever the enemy is mounting against you is momentary, a time will come when by divine intervention, the enemy will be crushed and put in his proper place forever in your life and you shall possess your possession in Jesus name. The ranting of Ismael will not prevent Isaac from entering his inheritance. Verse 24-25 reads, “And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise; and another shall rise after them, and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words 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 unto his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time”. If you look at what is happening in the world today and the resurgence of the Roman Empire in the form of European Union, you will appreciate how close the fulfilment of this prophecy is. The antichrist is not just going to be an ordinary person with political power alone. Power is a very dangerous weapon in the hand of an antichrist. We are not just talking about political power alone but about political cum spiritual power. He is going to be the personification of evil with all the powers of darkness. He is going to call the shots politically, economically and backed up absolutely. His rule will be against light. Because he is everything that darkness typifies, he will hate light.
