HIStory, Our Future: The Antichrist Kingdom

Last Updated: 09/16/2023 14:27    | Print This Page | |

“The Fourth Kingdom” is a reference to Daniel 7 and the fourth beast from the sea in his vision. I won't completely go through Daniel 7, but it is the reason for this page so I recommend reading that page first. Daniel 7 has some similarities to another vision from Daniel 2 and yet another from Revelation 13:1-8 and Revelation 17:1-13. These all point to the kingdom over which the Antichrist will rule initially and ultimately from it over the whole world for 3 1/2 years. This page will present the historical view of this collection of prophecies and then focus on the details from scripture relating to the Antichrist kingdom. This will show how God has given us many clues to understanding history and its relationship to the future as well as some keys to being able to watch for the signs of the end.

Gentile History in light of Bible prophecy

There are several places in the Bible where dreams and visions given to the prophets Daniel and John provide an over-arching view of the history of kingdoms leading to the final Antichrist kingdom.

The Seven Kingdoms & the Seven Heads

Revelation 12:3
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

This passage connects the dragon, Lucifer, to this same symbology that represents the lineage of kingdoms through history showing his spirit behind the seven kingdoms. What are the heads and what do they represent? As we'll see, these are kingdoms that span both our history and our future and this odd image of a beast with seven heads and ten horns and crowns is repeated several times and is a visualization of the political earthly kingdoms control of Israel through to the final kingdom.

John’s Vision: Historical Kingdoms [Revelation 17:9-10]

Part of John's expansive vision of the end provided in the book of Revelation is a vision of the judgment of the whore of Babylon where there are several key pieces of information provided about both the Antichrist kingdom and its history. Most of these are also part of Nebuchadnezzar's dream interpreted by Daniel. However this goes a little further back in history.

Revelation 17:3; 9-10
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, [and] the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

This one portion provides historical context for the seven heads being seven kings. From John's perspective, writing just after Christ's first coming, the "one is" would have been Rome, which ruled over Israel until 70 AD when Israel was disbursed and no longer living as a nation in the land. Five previous kings are fallen at his time and one is yet to come, which has not been seen historically and so is still future to us. So this beast John sees is really defining the great dragon's control of Israel through history, culminating in the final short reign he will have through his proxy Antichrist and false prophet.

Ever since the arrival of the nation of Israel back in the land in 1948, Israel has ruled itself once again. It's a different kind of Israel, regathered from the world and a melting pot of the cultures of the world along with the traditions planted by God in their own ancient people still engrained in the culture. The question is, will the dragon's control of Israel be through another nation as in times of old, or will the dragon use a ruler of Israel to control the people? We'll look at the remaining vision when focused on the future fulfillment. We get a little more clarity from Nebuchadnezzar's dream that Daniel interprets.

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream: Historical Kingdoms [Daniel 2]

Daniel, while in exile in Babylon was called upon by king Nebuchadnezzar to interpret a dream that troubled him. This dream turned out to cover the history of the main Gentile kingdoms of the world. It ends with the kingdom that will be in power when Christ returns and takes the kingdoms of the world and rules.

Daniel 2:31-40
Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all.
Thou art this head of gold.
And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee,
and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
[Roman Empire]
And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

We know this prophecy represents a historical progression of nations because Nebuchadnezzar is called out specifically as being that head of gold. The remaining kingdoms are not spelled out for us, but it lays out an over-arching history of kingdoms from Babylon to the Antichrist kingdom at the end. Secular historians can attest to the progression of these kingdoms in the region ruling over Israel.

The following are a look at some possible historical heads of the seven kingdoms based on some kind of dealing with the nation of Israel by their leaders. I do not claim that this is completely accurate and if you have any suggestions please let me know. I believe it's commony accepted that given the Bible focuses on the natural branch, which is Israel, these fallen nations and the one in John's day hold some kind of control over Israel.

  1. Egyptian 1400’s B.C. [fallen - Revelation 17:10-11]
  2. Assyrian 600’s - 900’s B.C. [fallen - Revelation 17:10-11]

    • Vespasian (1 July 69 – 23/24 June 79 AD) [Emperor at the time of the destruction of Jerusalem]

The Future Antichrist Kingdom

Now let’s look to the descriptions of the Antichrist kingdom that are yet future from the various prophesies. There are diverse prophecies that all cover certain aspects and this is my attempt to bring them all together to paint a clearer picture of what to expect from the coming global kingdom of the Antichrist.

John’s Vision: Antichrist Kingdom [Revelation 17]

I won't focus on the woman riding the beast. The passages from Revelation 17 here will focus on the beast itself.

Revelation 17:9-10
And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, [and] the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And 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. 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 [are] called, and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

There is a lot there, but I want to bring together the other passages first and then I will combine them to paint a pictures of the Antichrist kingdom at the end.

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream: Future [Daniel 2]

Daniel 2:41-43
[Antichrist Kingdom of the End-Times]
And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. 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. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, [Christ, the Rock] and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Daniel’s Dream: The Four Kingdoms [Daniel 7]

Daniel also had his own dream of this final kingdom with some similarities to Nebuchadnezzar's dream, yet it would seem to be focused wholely on the future state of the world at the time of the Antichrist's kingdom. This is more fully covered in the Daniel 7 study.

There's a historical and contemporaneous view of the four beasts. In the past I held that it was paralelling Daniel 2 in describing historical kingdoms through history to the future and final one. Daniel 7:12 and what Chris White has presented in his Bible studies and books have convicned me the whole of Daniel 7 is yet future.

Daniel 7
In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters. Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.

The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.

And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.

After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.

[The beast or antichrist kingdom - Revelation 13:1-10]
After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. 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.

[Christ’s Kingdom at Christ’s Return in Glory]

I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

[Destruction of the Antichrist - Revelation 19:20]
I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me. I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.


These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

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; And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, [Revelation 13:5] whose look was more stout than his fellows.

[The 2nd Half of the 70th Week of Daniel]

I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; 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.

Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. 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 into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. [3½ years or 42 months Revelation 13:5 or 1260 days] But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.

Regarding the nature of the first three beasts, I would recommend watching Chris White’s video on Daniel 7 here.

John’s Vision: The Beast From The Sea [Revelation 13:1-8]

In the time just after Christ's first coming and return to heaven, John was given a vision of the future where he saw some very similar things as Daniel related to the fourth beast.

Revelation 13:1-8
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 ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which 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 gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

John’s Vision: The Beast From The Earth [Revelation 13:11-18]

This passage is somewhat tandential, but confirms and speaks to the beast and some identifying properties so I'm including this here.

Revelation 13:11-18
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.

Now as we combine these prophecies of a future kingdom we see there will be a seventh kingdom (head) from which will emerge the Antichrist.

  1. Seventh Empire [not yet come - Revelation 17:10-11]
    • Daniel 2 - Iron/Clay feet
    • Daniel 7- Iron teeth & 10 horns
  2. Antichrist Kingdom [Government formed after the abomination of desolation under the man of sin - Revelation 17:11]
    • Daniel 2 - Iron/Clay feet
    • Daniel 7- Iron teeth & 10 horns
    • Revelation 13:5 - This is the eighth and of the first seven and is indwelt/given power by the dragon at the abomination of desolation. This defines the 8th that is of the seven. He is given power for 42 months.

The Antichrist Kingdom

Having looked at all the passages that refer to all these odd visions of multi-headed beasts mixed together, what does it all mean? Of course it's not meant to be speaking of literal mixed beasts, but symbols to help define the characteristics we can expect to see in the future Antichrist kingdom.

The Beast

From Revelation 12:3-4 it seems clear that this beast is Lucifer, the great dragon and his influence over the kings throughout history to affect Israel. He symbolically draws 1/3 of the angels from heaven to the earth and he has 7 heads (Revelation 13:1 | Revelation 17:3,7,9) with 7 crowns (Revelation 13:1) and 10 horns (Daniel 7:7,20,24 | Revelation 13:1 | Revelation 17:3,7,12,16). The only places in scripture these are all mentioned is in direct relation to this end-time beast. Moreover in Revelation 13:2 we see that the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. So I would posit that while in may ways the beast is focused on the Antichrist, the real power is from the dragon who is the focus of the worship, just the way he wants it. Revelation 13:4

As with many other places in scripture, there are many types and foreshadows, but the ultimate fulfillment of this beast will be the future Antichrist kingdom where the dragon will give his proxies, the Antichrist and false prophet, power to completely dominate both God's people and the whole world. Those without faith will quickly recognize they are powerless against the Antichrist and will submit. Those who know of the coming deception will not fall for it and may lose their lives, but not their eternal souls. I believe this is the mystery of iniquity at work in the world today, silently marching toward the goal of deceiving as many as possible to their own destruction. 2 Thessalonians 2

The Rise of the Antichrist

I have to give credit to Chris White and his great books and podcast / YouTube. The research and understanding he's shared has really clarified some things for me in my studies and painted a much clearer picture of the coming times that makes a lot of sense.

I think Daniel 7, with the four contemporaeous beasts from the sea Daniel 7:12, is our first glimpse of the new world order in Bible prophecy. We have a picture of four distinct beasts, interpreted as kings Daniel 7:17, all coming from the sea different from each other. A lion with plucked eagle's wings, a bear with 3 ribs in its mouth, a leopard with four wings and four heads and the fourth dreadful and strong beast with iron teeth, nails of brass and 10 horns.

Zooming into that fourth beast, or kingdom Daniel 7:23, we see a little horn, king Daniel 7:24, diverse from the others come up from amongst the 10 kings. 3 of those kings are plucked up by their roots, or as interpreted fell before or subdued by the new king. This new diverse king will speak out against God and all that believe in God, changing times and laws. This may have to do with the token of a covenant with many (Revelation 6:2 | Daniel 9:27) All this is going on while the other three beasts are separate yet contemporaneous.

With the wars of the Antichrist, I think this quartering of power on the earth gives us a view of the time of the fourth seal where the rider is given power over 1/4 of the earth to kill with sword, hunger, death and beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:7-8 One of Daniel's other visions gives us a view of the Antichrist in the last days.

Daniel 11:36-12:1
And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.
[Wars of Antichrist]
And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
[Final transition to the Abomination of Desolation]
And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Notice similarly to Daniel 7, this king will do his own will and magnify himself above God, speaking against the God of gods, honoring a god of forces who his fathers didn't know. With the perspective of a Jewish Antichrist, this makes a lot of sense. Speaking to the unbelieving Jews in His day, Yeshua said, "I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive." John 5:37-47 Understanding more also that the Jews are looking for a conquering king to restore Israel, it's setting up for a perfect deception. And God will give the world over to that lie. 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 Remember though that Yeshua said His coming would not be on the earth. Acts 1:9-11 | Matthew 24:23-28 | Revelation 19:11-16

This king will acknowledge and increase with glory a strange god. It would seem this strange god will give this king his power, seat and great authority as he begins to conquer his surrounding enemies like Egypt, Libya and Ethiopia. In my mind the details of who the king of the North and South are is not as important as understanding that he will seem to be unstoppable. I do find it interesting that the nations that are mentioned are typically not big fans of Israel. With the Jewish Antichrist paradigm these wars start to make a lot more sense if indeed he has already confirmed a covenant to restart the daily sacrifice in Israel. Israel's neighbors would not be too happy and the religious furvor of a perceived messiah conquering their enemies would only enhance the deception the world is given over to. 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12

There is an event that will at first seem to have stopped this unstoppable force. At some point at the end of these wars, the Antichrist will plant his tabernacle to the West of Jerusalem where he will "come to his end." Revelation 13:3,12,14 | Revelation 17:8,11 It is at this time that the unparalleled time of great tribulation will begin, when the conquering king comes to his end yet lives, that the mask will come off and tolerance for not worshipping him will cease. He will go into the temple at Jersualem and declare himself to be God and anyone in Jerusalem at that time should heed the words of Christ and flee for the mountains. Those Jews and Gentiles will soon see that he is not who he says and those disciples that are deceived by him will do whatever he says to the unbelievers.

The Antichrist Kingdom Fulfilled

The Seven Heads/Mountains/Kings

The Ten Horns & Ten Kings

The Little Horn

Millennial/Eternal Kingdom

In the end we see the rock, Christ, destroying both the final Antichrist kingdom as well as showing superiority over all historical kingdoms with the destruction of the image and consuming these temporal kingdoms to stand forever. While there are not a lot of details of these kingdoms, there is another prophecy from John that gives more history to these kingdoms.

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream: Eternal [Daniel 2]

Daniel 2:44-45
And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, [Christ, the Rock] and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

There are several paradigms when studying the end times that affect how you interpret the details. For me, when initially studying Bible prophecy, I learned from a paradigm that viewed a revived Roman empire as the kingdom from which the Antichrist would come and reign. There is also a view of an Islamic empire from which the Antichrist would come and reign and more recently a Jewish.

While I am leaning toward the latter, the goal of this site is to gather knowledge I’ve gained of different perspectives and put them in one place. So this page is really a jump point to the three main views that can be switched between using the three icons to the right. As with everything this is a work in progress.

  • Mediterranean Kingdom | Jewish Antichrist - I’ve learned a lot from Chris White’s work presenting the idea of both a Jewish Antichrist, deceiving Israel into believing he is their long-awaited Messiah through the apparent fulfillment of several prophecies their paradigm is expecting. Somewhat separately, yet it fits together quite well, is the idea that the 10 kingdoms are around the Mediterranean region, where the fourth kingdom would generally be viewed as the middle east. So far these views seem to hold the most legitimacy in my understanding.
  • Revived Roman Kingdom | Roman Antichrist - This is the more traditionally and widely accepted view that looks at Daniel 2 as historical each of those 5 kingdoms through history followed each other. Since the legs of iron and and feet of iron and clay have a common material, then the Antichrist kingdom must flow from Rome and be reborn somehow as a revived Roman kingdom. This then necessitates the Antichrist coming from that kingdom and ruling it.
