Thanks endtime warrior for your understanding, however, we would like you to look at the fact that this anti-christ individual may not be a living
person but instead a handmade image.
Revelation 13:15 It was given to him to give breath to it, to the image of the beast
, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause
as many as wouldn’t worship the image of the beast to be killed.
9:20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed with these plagues, didn’t repent of the works of their hands, that they wouldn’t worship demons,
and the idols of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of stone, and of wood; which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk.
It is noted in the bible that
Revelation 17:8 The beast that you saw was, and is not; and is about to come up out of the abyss
and to go into destruction. Those who dwell on
the earth and whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel when they see that The beast that
you saw was, and is not; and is about to come up out of the abyss
Many ignore the fact that this beast previously existed but at that time it was spoken about it did not but would exist again. That in itself
disproves many theories. What is that which existed before?
The Christ/Messiah gave us the clues to figure this out. Ever wonder why Moses was told to make what appeared to be an idol. Especially one that
appeared to be more what we would think of as an image of Satan.
John 3:14 As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 3:15 that whoever believes in him should not
perish, but have eternal life.
Moses was told to do what he did as a prophecy of the Messiah and of the one who would later be known at the antichrist. The people at that time were
being bitten and killed by snakes and if they turned and looked at the fiery serpent they would be saved. Well this was the case for the Messiah.
Numbers 21:8 The LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a standard: and it shall happen, that everyone who is bitten, when he sees
it, shall live.” 21:9 Moses made a serpent of brass, and set it on the standard: and it happened, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he
looked to the serpent of brass, he lived.
Who did the snakes of the OT represent? They were talked about by John the one known as the baptist and the Messiah himself.
Matthew 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for his immersion he said to them, “You offspring of vipers
warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
23:29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and decorate the tombs of the righteous, 23:30 and
say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we wouldn’t have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’ 23:31 Therefore you
testify to yourselves that you are children of those who killed the prophets. 23:32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. 23:33 You offspring
, how will you escape the judgment of Gehinnom
Luke 3:7 He said therefore to the multitudes who went out to be immersed by him, “You offspring of vipers
, who warned you to flee from the
wrath to come?
The Pharisees and Saducees as well as the scribes were not teaching the truth that was in the scriptures. As the Christ/Messiah said 5:39 “You
search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and these are they which testify about me. 5:40 Yet you will not come to
me, that you may have life.
So the Messiah was lifted up as the fiery snake and the people that were "bitten by the snakes" were supposed to believe who he said he was in order
to be saved. This was not only fulfilling prophecy but continuing to prophecy about the snake itself, the antichrist. That is why the Messiah also
prophesied when he said "Lord, Lord why have you forsaken me? The Christ/Messiah knew his father wouldn't forsake him even psalms confirms this
22:1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning?,,, ,,,22:15 My strength
is dried up like a potsherd. My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth. You have brought me into the dust of death. 22:16 For dogs have surrounded me.
A company of evildoers have enclosed me. They have pierced my hands and feet. 22:17 I can count all of my bones. They look and stare at me. 22:18 They
divide my garments among them. They cast lots for my clothing. 22:19 But don’t be far off, LORD. You are my help: hurry to help me. 22:20 Deliver my
soul from the sword, my precious life from the power of the dog. 22:21 Save me from the lion’s mouth! Yes, from the horns of the wild oxen, you have
answered me. 22:22 I will declare your name to my brothers. In the midst of the assembly, I will praise you. 22:23 You who fear the LORD, praise him!
All you descendants of Jacob, glorify him! Stand in awe of him, all you descendants of Israel! 22:24 For he has not despised nor abhorred the
affliction of the afflicted, Neither has he hidden his face from him; but when he cried to him, he heard.
He again was actually prophecying about the antichrist who would be forsaken as King Hezekiah did as a prophecy to the fiery serpent when he destroyed
it. Why did he destroy the serpent that was once used to save the peope. Because they were worshiping it. The same thing they are doing today. The
crucifix is the image the fiery serpent represented and why 666 reveals the image of the beast as, none other than, the crucifix. It is also why the
name Jesus adds up to 616.
2 Kings 18:4 He removed the high places, and broke the pillars, and cut down the Asherah: and he broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had
made; for to those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it; and he called it Nehushtan.
