Discerning the Kingdom of Antichrist

By Maria Merola אריאל

Even though I have been an avid student of Bible Prophecy for over forty years, things came into greater focus for me on March 21st 2020. As I stood at my kitchen sink washing dishes, I heard the voice of my shepherd say to me “Maria, go look up the meaning and the etymology of the words corona & virus; and then read Revelation 6:2.” 

The Rider on the White Horse in Revelation 6:2

For many years, I had made the connection between the rider on the white horse in Revelation 6:2, and Nimrod, the “mighty hunter.”  He is first mentioned in Genesis, the tenth chapter. A mighty hunter would obviously carry a bow to hunt with, and we know that Nimrod also ruled over a kingdom in the land of Shinar, and therefore, he was given a crown.

The first mention of Nimrod is in Genesis 10:

8  And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.

9  He was a mighty hunter before YHWH: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before YHWH. 

The first thing I want to mention is that the Hebrew phrase “before YaHuWaH, literally means the following:

#6440 paniym paw-neem' plural (but always as singular) of an unused noun (paneh {paw-neh'}; from 6437); the face (as the part that turns); against, anger, battle, countenance, impudentagainst.

The meaning of this word means that Nimrod’s rebellion was “In the face of YaHuWaH,meaning that he felt no shame. He was brazen in his rebellion. The word impudent in the dictionary means “brazenly shameless, immodest.The root word for paniym also means the following:

#6437 panah paw-naw' a primitive root; to turn; by implication, to face, i.e. appear, look, etc.:--appear, at (even-)tide, behold, cast out, come on, X corner, dawning, empty, go away, lie, look, mark, pass away, prepare, regard, (have) respect (to), (re-)turn aside, turn away, back, face, self), X right (early).

What learn from Scripture is that Nimrod turned away from YaHuWaH. He turned his face away from him. He turned aside, and was rebellious.

Let us examine these words in Hebrew for “mighty hunter.”

The word “mighty” is: 

#1368 gibbowr ghib-bore' or (shortened) gibbor {ghib-bore'}; intensive from the same as 1397; powerful; by implication, warrior, tyrant:-- champion, chief, X excel, giant, man, mighty (man, one), strong (man), valiant man.

#6718 tsayid tsah'-yid from a form of 6679 and meaning the same; the chase; also game (thus taken); (generally) lunch (especially for a journey):--X catcheth, food, X hunter, (that which he took in) hunting, venison, victuals.

Okay, so Nimrod was a giant, a tyrant, and warrior, who liked chasing his prey. It was a sport for him, he enjoyed it like a game. It is obvious that he liked hunting. But where is the first mention of giants in Scripture? It is only four chapters earlier where we read for the first time about giants. 

Genesis 6:

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 

2  That the sons of Elohiym saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 

3  And YHWH said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 

4  There were giants [nephiyl] in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of Elohiym came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown

Looking at the Hebrew word for “giants” in the above passage it is the Hebrew word “nephiyl” which literally means “bully, tyrant, giant.” 

However, the root word is as follows:

#5307 naphal , which means: to fall, cast down, inferior, be judged, overthrow, overwhelm, perish, smite out, throw down.

It is obvious from the root words, that these giants were the offspring of human women procreating with fallen angels, which produced a genetically inferior race of beings, known as “nephiylim” (fallen ones).

Genesis 6:4 also tells us that these giants became “mighty men,” which is the same Hebrew word used to describe Nimrod, as the “mighty hunter” (gibbor). When it says that these were “of old,” the Hebrew word is “owlam” which means “eternity!” It goes on and says that these giants were men of “renown.” The Hebrew word for “renown” is as follows:

#8034 Shem, through the idea of definite and conspicuous position; an appellation, as a mark or memorial of individuality, named, report, fame.

Okay, so we know that the sons of Elohiym (fallen angels) took human woman as wives, and their offspring were giants, tyrants, bullies. They were fallen angels, they were mighty; they were from eternity, and they were famously known among humans! Are you beginning to see the similarities between these Nephilim and Nimrod?

In Genesis 6, we are told that YaHuWaH sent the flood because he had repented that he had created humanity; for they allowed themselves to be seduced by fallen angels, and their genetic line was contaminated by fallen angels.

Genesis 6:

5 And Elohiym saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 

6 And it repented YHWH that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 

7 And YHWH said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repents me that I have made them

If YaHuWaH destroyed every living creature, (both man and beast, with the flood), how is it that Nimrod was a giant or a Nephilim?

Well, something happened after the flood. Noah did something very similar to his ancestors Adam & Eve. He planted a vineyard, and then he drank of the fruit of the vine, and became drunk. The first sin entered the world when Adam & Eve disobeyed YaHuWaH, and ate of the Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil. The curses that came upon humanity as a result of that one act of disobedience, ultimately lead to the human women procreating with fallen angels, and giving birth to giants or Nephilim. 

After Noah became drunk, Scripture says the following:

Genesis 9:22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

*Note: Seeing the nakedness of his father is a euphemism for having sex with his own mother, Noah’s wife! I believe it was this act of incest that opened the floodgates for the fallen angels to come into their midst and begin to influence humanity once again. 

Genesis 9:23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their fathers nakedness.

Genesis 9:24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.

Genesis 9:2And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

Genesis 9:26  And he said, Blessed be YHWH Elohiym of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. 

After Noah cursed his son Ham for uncovering his nakedness, we read in the next chapter that the Gentiles were divided in the nations in their lands, and from the descendants of Ham came Cush, and then Nimrod.

Genesis 10:

5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations. 

6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

7 And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan. 

8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. 

9 He was a mighty hunter before YHWH: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before YHWH. 

10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 

And this is precisely why YaHuWaH sent the flood, (to destroy this race of hybrids known as Nephilim). However, after Noah sinned by getting drunk, his son Ham was led astray, and thus the door to the fallen angels was opened again. 

Are you beginning to see the similarities with the Nephilim and Nimrod?

In Daniel chapter 10, the prophet was shown in a vision (during the reign of King Cyrus), the mechanism by which YaHuWaH sets up kingdoms (empires) and puts them down.

The arch-angel Michael was assigned to watch over the nation of Yisra’el, and it is he that WITHSTANDS the powers and principalities, until the PROPER TIME.

Daniel chapter 12 gives us more detail about his function:

Daniel 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which stands for the children of your 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 your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. 

At the proper time (when YaHuWaH gives him the go-ahead), he WITHDRAWS, and ALLOWS the NEW KINGDOM/EMPIRE to be INSTALLED.

It began with Nimrod in the land of Shinar, and his Ten Provinces (see Genesis 10).

Nimrod’s Kingdom is the template for which we can discern the future Kingdom of the Anti-Messiah (Antichrist). Nimrod’s Kingdom was divided after the flood in Noah’s day, at the Tower of Babel.

Afterward, came Egypt, Assyria, Babylon (under Nebuchadnezzar), Medo-Persia, Greece and then Rome (the fourth kingdom in Daniel’s time).

After Rome, came the United Kingdom & America.

In the latter days, the Apostle Yahuwchanon (John) was shown that “THE EIGHTH KING” (or kingdom/empire) would be a conglomerate of these former empires.



In Daniel chapter 2, we are shown that ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD ARE RULED BY SATAN! 

The head of gold = Babylon.
The chest of silver = Medo-Persia.
The hips of brass = Greece.
The two iron legs = Byzantine & Ottoman Empires of Rome.

Out of these TWO IRON LEGS comes TEN TOES in the latter days.

These TEN TOES are the TEN HORNS on the FOURTH BEAST (Rome, the two iron legs).

These TEN TOES are made partly of IRON (Robotics, technology, Nephilim), and partly of CLAY (human, dust of the earth).

America is ONE of these TEN TOES or TEN HORNS!

Afterwards, the TEN TOES of CLAY & IRON are destroyed by the coming of the Great King, Yahuwshuwa!

Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the Elohiym 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.

Daniel 2:45  Forasmuch as you saw that THE STONE WAS CUT OUT OF A MOUNTAIN WITHOUT HANDS, and that IT BROKE IN PIECES THE IRON, THE BRASS, THE CLAY, THE SILVER AND THE GOLD; the great Elohiym has made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Just before the return of Messiah, all the nations of the earth, and their leaders (including America) will rule for one hour with the beast.

Revelation 17:12 And the TEN HORNS which you saw are TEN KINGS, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings ONE HOUR WITH THE BEAST.




*Note: The most common language around the world is English, which is the language of America. Almost every country is now taught English as their second language.

Genesis 11:4  And they said, Go to, LET US BUILD us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and LET US MAKE A NAME, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

The phrase “Let us make a name” means “Let us become famous as a nation.”  It is the same attitude as “Make America Great Again!”

It is the attitude that we are going to be united, or become “ONE, without the second coming of Messiah!


Yahuwshuwa is NOT going to make America great again, but rather, he will make HIS OWN NAME GREAT AGAIN!

The Iron & the Clay

There have been many theories as to what the iron and the clay represent. I have heard some theologians teach that the iron represents Rome (and I agree with that interpretation). They say that the clay, is a mixture of other kingdom and nations of the world attempting to become one with Rome. This would be the New World Order Religion, a combining of all world religions. This is a plausible theory, since the various ideologies of these other religions and cultures would serve to weaken the strength and the resolve of Rome, thus making it weaker.

This may explain why the malak (messenger) said to Daniel:

Daniel 2:

40  And the fourth kingdom (Rome) shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things: and as iron that breaks all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. 

41  And whereas you saw 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 you saw the iron mixed with miry clay. 

42  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. 

43  And whereas you saw 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. 

The word “miry” has the following meaning in Hebrew:

#2917 tiyn teen (Aramaic) perhaps, by interchange, for a word corresponding to 2916; clay:--miry.

#2916 tiyt teet from an unused root meaning apparently to be sticky (rath. perb. a demon. from 2894, through the idea of dirt to be swept away); mud or clay; figuratively, calamity:--clay, dirt, mire.

*Note: What does miry clay have to do with a demon? I will give you a hint. Our Messiah taught us how to cast out unclean spirits in Matthew 12:43-45. He said that casting out unclean spirits is like sweeping away the dirt from your house. Interestingly, the root word for “miry clay” also means “to sweep away!” 

Matthew 12:

43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.

44 Then he says, I will return into my house from where I came out; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished.

45 Then goes he, and takes with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

#2894 tuw' too a primitive root; to sweep away:--sweep.

The word “clay” has the following meaning in Hebrew:

#2635 chacaph khas-af' (Aramaic) from a root corresponding to that of 2636; a clod:--clay.

#2636 chacpac khas-pas' reduplicated from an unused root meaning apparently to peel; a shred or scale:--round thing.

Do you remember how YaHuWaH formed Adam?

Genesis 2:7 And YHWH Elohiym formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

How did YaHuWaH form Adam? From clay! The Hebrew word for “dust” is as follows:

#6080 `aphar aw-far' : a primitive root: meaning either to be gray or perhaps rather to pulverize; used only as denominative from 6083to be dust:--cast (dust).

#6083 `aphar aw-fawr' from 6080; dust (as powdered or gray); hence, clay, earth, mud:--ashes, dust, earth, ground, morter, powder, rubbish.

And what about the iron?

#1270 barzel bar-zel' perhaps from the root of 1269iron (as cutting); by extension, an iron implement:--(ax) head, iron.

#1269 Birzowth beer-zoth' probably feminine plural from an unused root (apparently mean to pierce); holes; Birzoth, an Israelite:--Birzavith (from the marg.).

If the Roman Empire is likened to iron, (which is strong), and the clay represents humanity (which is weak and easily broken), I think we can safely say that the iron and the clay mixed together can also be eluding to the idea of Nephilim! 

In other words, “hybrids!” Part human (clay), and part iron (robotics). Is this how the Kingdom of Antichrist will be built? Will it be a combination of the divided nations that come together to reform Nimrod’s Kingdom?

Remember, the nations were divided after the flood, and Satan, (the counterfeiter) will attempt to unify all the nations of the earth again under Nimrods Kingdom as in the days before the flood.

Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Matthew 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,

Matthew 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Nimrod was the first Anti-Messiah leader to form a ONE WORLD RELIGION & GOVERNMENT, as he was also the builder of the TOWER OF BABEL.

Nimrod ruled over TEN PROVINCES in the land of Shinar (Genesis 10).

Nimrod was a pattern for us to observe about the END-TIME BEAST who will rule the world with TEN KINGS (Revelation 17:12). 

As I have already revealed at the beginning of this blog, it is postulated that Nimrod was a Nephilim (fallen angel), that mated with human women. I have seen many hints in Scripture citing that this may very well be true.

Scripture hints about Satan manifesting himself under many of these aliases. Read all of Daniel chapter 10 to see how he is able to transform himself.

He is called “The Prince of Persia” (Daniel 10:13 & 20).

He is called “An Angel of Light” (2nd Corinthians 11:12).

He is compared to “The Prince of Tyre” in Ezekiel 28.

He is compared to the “The King of Babylon” in Isaiah 14:12-15.

He is called “The Dragon, that Old Serpent, the Devil” in Revelation 12:9; 20:2,3,4,7,9,13. 

In Latin he is called “Lucifer,” meaning “Light Bringer.”

In pagan mythology, he has the following aliases: Poseidon (Greek), Neptune (Roman), the rule of the sea.

These are aliases for what Revelation 13:1 says about the end-time BEAST:

Revelation 13:1 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.

A Prophetic Dream About President Trump

A friend of mine that is a prayer warrior, and obeys Torah, shared a dream that she had about President Trump in May 2020, and it bears witness to the things I have been seeing in the spirit as well.

I asked her to write down her dream for me, and with her permission (she wants to be anonymous), I am now sharing what she wrote:

Last night I asked ABBA to show me what he thought of Donald Trump. I heard “Read Ezekiel 28,” and I was shocked. I went to bed and dreamed this. In the dream I saw Donald Trump speaking to people, but I knew He was speaking lies. I walked over to speak with him, and told him I would pray for him.

I went to shake his hand, but he walked away from me. As he walked away, I yelled, “Just tell the truth about who you are, you are the King of Tyre, and he replied ‘Yes I am with a sarcastic smirk.’”

I replied and said “The Prince of Tyre is another name for Lucifer,” and he did the same thing again. He replied “Yes I am!” with a smirk.

Suddenly, I found myself walking through the sleeping chambers where Donald Trump and Melania lay asleep. And I was going quietly to enter another room to sleep when I was caught, and I saw where they arose. The bed linens had been stripped, and it was in the early hours of the morning.

Their bedroom was laid in gold. “Donald Trump never sleeps” is what I heard.

I woke up, and thought, “I need to write this down,” but I prayed inwardly and asked for a confirmation dream. I went back to sleep and had a dream about a Conspiracy Podcaster named “Eric Neptune.” He wanted to have me on his program to warn about who Donald Trump really was.

I entered the sleeping/secret quarters of President Trump and to the eye he looked normal, but I had a camera and through the camera lens, I could see his TRUE FORM!

He had goats’ horns, hands, and feet, and he was “FIRE RED!”

Suddenly, the picture of him in his true form was in my hands, and he wanted the picture back. But this podcaster named “Eric Neptune” wanted the picture as proof.

After I woke up, I further researched the name “Eric Neptune.”

Eric means “RULER OF ALL,” and the name “NEPTUNE” is the Roman name for the Greek “POSEIDON” the “KING OF THE SEA!”

TYRE was a coastal city mentioned in Ezekiel 28.

NEPTUNE is the 8th planet from the sun.

Revelation 17:11 speaks about THE EIGHTH KING as being the final RULER OF THE WORLD.

Neptune rules with a Trident or a Scepter. A Scepter is a staff that a King uses to rule with.

*My thoughts on her dream:

First, I want to say that this dream bears witness with my ruwach (spirit). I have been sensing this for a quite some time, but out of fear of being hated by other believers, I held back, until the evidence was so obvious, that nobody could deny it.

Secondly, what YaHuWaH showed her about the identity of the “Prince of Tyre” in Ezekiel 28 is 100% accurate. I wrote a blog about this back in 2010. See the blog entitled: “Is Lucifer the Morning Star?”

Thirdly, I want to say that ha’Satan, the Devil has many aliases in Scripture, as he can “Transform himself as an angel of light,”  (2nd Corinthians 11:14), thus, he can manifest himself through many EARTHLY KINGS! 

One of the characteristics about the “LITTLE HORN” in Daniel Chapter 8:23 is that he speaks in DARK SENTENCES. The Hebrew word for “dark sentences” is “chiydah,” which means: TRICK, RIDDLE, MAXIM, PUZZLE!

Daniel 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of FIERCE COUNTENANCE, and understanding DARK SENTENCES, shall stand up.

One such RIDDLE that President Trump told (in connection to his immigration policy) was a poem about “The Woman & the Snake.” One of Trump’s hallmarks is that he SPEAKS IN CODE aka DARK SENTENCES!

Now, listen to him reading the poem about the Woman & The Snake in this video:

In case you have not figured it out yet, THE WOMAN IS AMERICA, AND THE SNAKE IS TRUMP! The snake said to the woman “You knew damn well before you took me in that I was a snake!”

The Prince of Tyre in Ezekiel 28 is the same one spoken of in Isaiah 14:12. He is none other than Lucifer/Satan.

In Babylonian pagan mythology, Nimrod was supposedly reincarnated as a GIANT FISH, A SEA CREATURE named DAGON!

In my friend’s dream, she saw a man named “Eric Neptune” which means “Ruler of All, King of the Sea.”

Revelation 13:1 says the following:

“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.”

The identity of this FIRST BEAST is the Roman Papacy. 




  1. Do you think the incestual act Ham did with his mother is what produced Nimrod?

    1. Yes, that is quite possible, Janice. I have thought about that before.
