Rev 17:9 The seven heads are seven mountains. They are also seven kings , five have fallen , one is ,and the other has not yet come
Rev 17:11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself an eighth king and yet is one of the seven, and is going to destruction
Rev 17:8 The beast you saw was, and is not, but is about to come up from the abyss
Rev 17:8 The inhabitants of the earth ... will be astounded when they see that the beast was, and is not, but is
17:10 five have fallen; one is, and the other has not yet come
Rev 13:1 Then1 I saw a beast coming up out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, and on its horns were ten diadem crowns, and on its heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast that I saw was like a leopard, but its feet were like a bear’s, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. The dragon gave the beast his power, his throne, and great authority to rule. One of the beast’s heads appeared to have been killed, but the lethal wound had been healed.
1 John 2:22 Who is the liar but the person who denies that Jesus is the Christ62? This one is the antichrist: the person who denies the Father and the Son
Daniel 2:31 “You, O king, were watching as a great statue – one of impressive size and extraordinary brightness – was standing before you. Its appearance caused alarm. As for that statue, its head was of fine gold, its chest and arms were of silver, its belly and thighs were of bronze. Its legs were of iron; its feet were partly of iron and partly of clay.You were watching as a stone was cut out but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its iron and clay feet, breaking them in pieces. Then the iron, clay, bronze, silver, and gold were broken in pieces without distinction and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors that the wind carries away. Not a trace of them could be found. But the stone that struck the statue became a large mountain that filled the entire earth.
Dan 2:40 Then there will be a fourth kingdom, one strong like iron. Just like iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything, and as iron breaks in pieces all of these metals, so it will break in pieces and crush the others.

Very interesting read.
I have often thought down these lines but I saw it in a different light.
When you read about Abram or Abraham, depending on what stage of his life you are looking at, the first conflict with in his family centered around the two sons. One was Ishmael and the other was Issac. Ishmael is the father of the Muslim nations. Issac is the child of promise..read St. Paul's apology in Romans...and I see a common thread and culmination between the Child of Promise..Issac..which according to Romans is an archtype of the Church...and Ishmael the child of mans effort to fullfill Gods plan....
The last historic battles/showdowns it seems would take place between the two archtypes or if I said it in Christian terms between Islam and Christians/Jews.
The idea of faith vs works..or Ishmael vs Issac is a central theme in the Pauline revelation.

Rev 20:4 Then I saw thrones and seated on them were those who had been given authority to judge. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God

Those that follow both the Koran and the Bible are conditioned to believe in self fulfilling the prophecy of the End of Times and both are unwilling to put asides their differences for the value and gift of life we all are given. Only the fall of organized religion will stop the end time prophecy from happening..until spirituality replaces literate interpretation of "the word" from either book, we're all doomed.

I'm very impressed by how you have shown such a good match with what the Bible verses are saying to what they seem to actually mean. However, I'm still confused as to if the book of Revelations actually indicates there will be a single anti-christ character or actually numerous characters.
