What is the name of the Anti-Christ
Now now, it's not nice to call people names.
The Bible doesn't name anyone in particular, but does give us clues as to who this will be. In Dan 8:25 we learn that by peace, he will destroy
many. So could we eliminate George Bush? Probably, but what if the Bible means that he'll destroy many to create peace? See it's really tough to go
off of one clue. You have to see if the person you are focusing on fits into many clues given out, or at least focus more on the clues that we are
In Daniel 9:26 we see that the people of "The prince that shall come" (Anti Christ) will come and destroy the temple. Since the Romans did indeed
destroy the temple, we can be pretty sure that the AntiChirst will come from the Roman empire. This is one of the best clues we have since it refers
to a prophecy that has been fulfilled.
Another interesting prophecy that we read in Dan 7:7 is that he will arise among a 10 horned (10 ruler) kingdom. Definitely not the US. I can't find
a way to divide the US into 10 sections. The best bet is the EU. Not the wimpy EU, but the Western European Union
(WEU), the original and most powerful portion of the EU. You'll be surprised (or not) to learn that there are 10 countries that make up the WEU. The
WEU is essentially the EU's 10-nation military wing.
More clues show us that "He will subdue 3 kings" (Dan 7:24) of the 10 horned kingdom, and we also read that "A crown was given to him" (Rev 6:2)
and that his power was not his own power (Dan 8:24 ). Also note that the 10 horn kingdom has one purpose, which is to give power to the AntiChrist.
So sounds like this guy will have a fairly peaceful rise to power. All the power he has is given to him willingly. If this kingdom is the WEU, then
who might this person be. What would you think of a person that held these titles.
Secretary-General of NATO
Secretary General of the Council of the European Union
High representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy
Secretary General of Western European Union (WEU)
Granted emergency powers over the WEU in Recommendation 666
Predetermined to be EU Foreign Minister in 2007
Who fits into all these positions? This person would definitely be a good candidate to become the AntiChrist. I even suspect that this person would
have have the power to subdue the EU big 3 (France, Germany, Britain). Really odd that 3 horns were mentioned when there are 3 super powerful nations
in the WEU / EU.
We need one more very important qualification for this person to be a good candidate. They must be involved with Israel's peace process and confirm
"a covenant with the many for one week"(Dan 9:27). One week meaning a week of years or 7 years. Read Daniel for clarification that these weeks were
periods of 7 years. Again fulfilled prophecy that indicated how long Israel would be captive in Babylon shows us that this isn't a guess.
So we need to find a covenant that last for 7 years, and includes Israel.
Enter the European Neighbourhood Policy
The European Neighbourhood Policy is a new policy that invites our neighbours to the East and to the South to share in the peace, stability and
prosperity that we enjoy in the European Union and which aims to create a ring of friends around the borders of the new enlarged EU.
The ENP will begin on Jan 1, 2007 when the EU's new constitution is enabled, and it will last thought one budget term. Can you guess what the EU's
budget term is? If you said 7 years, then give yourself a cookie. Wow! This fits perfectly. It's like one of those jigsaws were all the edges have to
line up just so so for the piece to fit.
We haven't gone off topic at all. Let's refresh. We have a 7 year contract that begins in 2007, it involves Israel, it involves the old Roman
empire, it involves a 10 nation alliance, it even has a single leader that has been given title after title by this alliance.
Still, let's not name names. Shhhh!!!
