Nimrod, the Papacy & the Assyrian

By Maria Merola

© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance, February 20th 2008

Ever since the Apostle John was exiled to the Island of Patmos, the revelation given to him by Yahuwshuwa our Messiah has, puzzled millions of readers. 

Since that time, history has unfolded before our eyes, and thus we have been able to connect some of the meaning of the Revelation to current events. However, the identity and characteristics of the Anti-Messiah aka “Antichrist” has remained elusive and obscure to many. What many have failed to understand is that there have been many leaders in the past who have come and gone who were “anti-christ.

1st Yahuwchanon (John) 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

What exactly does this word “anti-christmean? 

The Greek Lexicon & Concordance reveals that it means much more than simply “against christ.

#473. anti an-tee' a primary particle; opposite, i.e. instead of; in place of; because of (rarely in addition to):--for, in the room of. Often used in composition to denote contrast, requital, substitution, correspondence, etc.

Based on the definition above, we can now understand, that an Antichrist leader is somebody who attempts to take the place of the true Messiah, Yahuwshuwa who abides eternally as Melchizedek in heaven (Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 7:21). An Antichrist leader may even pretend to follow the true Messiah, the one true Elohiym of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob. However, the true motive of an Antichrist is to oppose and replace our Creator.

Pictured above is Nimrod the first historical Anti-Messiah. You may be asking your-self “How could Nimrod be the Anti-Messiah, when the Messiah had not come to earth yet?” 

The answer to that question is simple. The Hebrew word for Messiah is “Mashiyach which means “to anoint with oil.” Hence, the anointing of the Messiah existed long before he became flesh in a mortal body. Yahuwshuwa the Mashiyach (whom many call Jesus Christ) not only has a pre-incarnate, eternal existence, but he also has had many anointed servants in the earth as a “type and shadow of himself. 

Such men, who came as a pre-cursor or a prophetic “type” of Messiah, were men like King David, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Noah, Enoch, Abraham. Just as there have been many patriarchs in the Bible who have been a prophetic type of Messiah, so there have been many who have been a prophetic type of the Anti-Messiah.

If we want to truly understand who the Anti-Messiah will be and what his characteristics are, we must look to the first and original Anti-Messiah named “Nimrod,” first mentioned in the 10th chapter of Genesis. His very name is defined in the Hebrew Lexicon as “rebellion.”

Nimrod was the son of Cush, the grandson of Ham and the great grandson of Noah. He was called a mighty hunter “mighty hunter before YaHuWaH” (Genesis 10:9). The Hebrew word “before” (paniym), means “in the face of or in front of.” 

It is a Hebrew idiom meaning “to have no shame; to be arrogant, rebellious or insolent.” But why should hunting be considered a rebellious act? Because Nimrod not only hunted animals, but he also hunted down humans---particularly infants and he sacrificed them to Moloch. Nimrod was the founder of the Assyrians, who took Yisrael into captivity:

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 23:13 Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, till the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they set up the towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; and he brought it to ruin.

Nimrod was the builder of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 10:10 & 11:9), and his persona would become the model for all the future Antichrists of history. 

In Isaiah 14:12, we are given a description of the fallen angel “Lucifer, son of the morning” or in Hebrew “Heylel Ben Shechar,” and he is also described as “The King of Babylon.” In Ezekiel 28, the same character is described as “The Prince of Tyre,” who had been in the Garden of Eden (Ezekiel 28:13). 

Ezekiel 28 gives us a hint that Satan, aka the fallen angel Lucifer has possessed many earthly leaders in order to advance his cause against the Most High, Elohiym. Nimrod was the first of these famous leaders who could be deemed as the “incarnation,” of Lucifer, for he was the human representation of the rebellious serpent who deceived Adam & Eve in the Garden. 

In the 10th chapter of the book of Daniel, we learn that for every “demonic principality” in the heavenlies, there is an “earthly ruler” who is a representation of that principality. 

The Angel Gabriel explained to Daniel that “The Prince of Persia” had withstood him for twenty one days until Michael, (one of the chief princes) came to assist him in bringing the message to Daniel. 

Gabriel continued to reveal in Daniel 10:20 that after the Prince of Persia was finished ruling, another “prince” (principality) would be installed as the ruler of another empire which would be “The Prince of Grecia.” 

Consequently we can see that for evil principality, there is a human being who acts as the earthly representation. The demonic principalities of Egypt, Babylon, Assyria, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome all had earthly rulers who were operating under their influence.

Is Lucifer the Morning Star?

In Isaiah 14 & Ezekiel 28, we see prophecies that seem to be referring to the king of Babylon (Nimrod) and the prince of Tyrus who was the father of Queen Jezebel (Ethbaal III).

But even though in these two prophecies, an earthly king is being described, we know from reading Daniel 10 that for every “ground prince” there is a ruling demon prince (a principality) or a fallen angel. 

The “fallen one” spoken of in Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 14 & Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 28 is indeed Satan who also possessed Nimrod and the Prince of Tyrus. 

There is a very close similarity to Isaiah 14 & Ezekiel 28 that shows us that these prophecies are about Satan himself as well as the earthly vessels that were being used to carry out his evil plans. Let us examine these two prophecies. 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 14:

13 For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohiym: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 28: 

1 The word of YHWH came again unto me, saying, 

2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus says YHWH Elohiym; Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, I am an ElohiymI sit in the seat of Elohiym, in the midst of the seas; yet you are a man, and not Elohiym, though you set your heart as the heart of Elohiym:

What we see here in Ezekiel 28 is that the prince of Tyrus was seen in the Garden of Eden:

Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 28: 

12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus says YHWH Elohiym; You seal up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 

13 You have been in Eden the garden of Elohiym; every precious stone was your covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of your tabrets and of your pipes was prepared in you in the day that you were created. 

14 You are the anointed cherub that covers; and I have set you so: you were upon the holy mountain of Elohiym you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 

15 You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, till iniquity was found in you.

The Prince of Tyre (possessed by Satan) was also the one who possessed the King of Babylon as well. That is why Ezekiel said that he was in the Garden of Eden! 

This prophecy in Isaiah 14 is about Satan, as well as Nimrod whose body was being used as a “host” to carry out the evil schemes of the Kingdom of Darkness. 

Hence, the name Lucifer is a Latin translation meaning “Light Bringer.” The Hebrew term “Heylel Ben Shachar” seen in the Masoretic Hebrew Scriptures means “son of the morning,” which indicates that he was merely a “son” (a created being) as the Messiah, The Morning Star created him. 

The Greek Septuagint inaccurately translates this as “The Morning Star,” insinuating that it was Yahuwshuwa who fell from heaven (the bright and morning star in Revelation 22:16). The Greek Septuagint translates this as if it says “boqer kokab” (morning star) in Hebrew, but it does not say this. Many people have been confused over this verse and it has caused many to question the identity of our Messiah.

I have seen Orthodox Jews use the Septuagint to convert people away from our Messiah with this one verse in Isaiah 14:12, and that is why I use the Hebrew Masoretic Text. 

The Roman Emperor Constantine, hired Eusebeus (a bishop of Caesarea) in the 3rd Century to make 50 Bibles for him in Latin Vulgate and instead of using the original Hebrew Tanakh (Old Testament), he used the Greek Septuagint which had been transcribed by Clement of Alexandria & Origen who were both Gnostics. 

They did not believe that Yahuwshuwa  (Jesus) is fully YaHuWaH in the flesh, so they removed the verses that they did not like from the Hebrew Text when forming the Septuagint. 

The Septuagint did not go into print until the 2nd Century A.D. (contrary to popular belief). The Vatican has propagated a lie (in order to defend the Catholic Bible’s legitimacy) and they make all scholars in their Jesuit propaganda believe that the Septuagint pre-dates our Messiah. But this is a lie. 

The Septuagint only goes back to 2nd Century Gnosticism. Here is evidence based on a letter from a man named Aristeas that shows that the historic events mentioned in this letter did not happen until the 2nd Century proving that the Septuagint is a Gnostic conspiracy hoax in order to discredit the deity of our Messiah:

Although the Latin translation of Lucifer was added to the text of Isaiah 14:12, it is none-the-less, describing Satan, who is a fallen star or a fallen angel. The Hebrew text does not use the name Lucifer or (light bringer) but we know that the Apostle Sha’ul (Paul) said that Satan can transform himself as “an angel of light” (2nd Corinthians 11:4).

The Prophet Malachi used the “The Sun Righteousness” as a metaphor of the future Messiah who was to come, because it is the brightest star in our solar system. However, Satan wants to be the brightest star (the sun) or “The Morning Star,” and this is why he has been attempting since the beginning of time to “take the place of, or substitute” our Messiah. 

In other words, Satan is the true Anti-Messiah, but he has had to “come in the flesh” (1st John 4:3) in order to imitate and fool people into accepting him as the genuine. 

In this way, he has tricked people into worshiping the created object of the sun rather than the one who created the sun. Before his fall, Lucifer had been a covering cherub at the throne. The Gnostics believe that Lucifer is also “Jesus the Messiah.” But scripture reveals that Yahuwshuwa Messiah cast Lucifer from his high position:

Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

The name Lucifer simply means “light bringer,” but he no longer has any light left in him. He is able to “transform himself as an angel of light,” but it is all an illusion meant to deceive many. He manifested in an earthly body as Nimrod, the King of Babylon and the Prince of Tyrus, as they both were human vessels through which he operated.

Nimrod was the exact anti-thesis to our Messiah Ben David, the conquering reigning king who will come on a white horse in Revelation 19 to overthrow the kingdoms of this world. Nimrod was the first to attempt to create a New World Order” religion & government in the land of Shinar (Genesis 10 & 11).

Nimrod Built the Tower of Babel

Bereshiyth (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.

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

11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,

12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.

Asshur or Assyria was the exact location where the Vatican is now located in Rome, as seen below on the map that shows where all the provinces of Shinar (Nimrod’s kingdom) were located. You will notice that Rome is within close proximity.       

Pangaea, according to modern science took place 240 million years ago. But according to scripture, it happened after the flood in the days of Noah: 

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 10:25-32 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.....These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.

As you can see from the illustration above, all of the continents were connected before the flood. To see an accurate representation of how Pangaea took place, see the video below:

The Great City of Ancient Babylon is pictured below:

When reading Daniel 2 and Revelation 13 & 17, we must understand that these “ten horns” and these “ten toes” were once located in one concentrated area. 

But then when YaHuWaH divided up the nations, all of the continents were separated after the flood. 

The names of these regions that once comprised Nimrod’s Babylonian kingdom are now all over the world in various nations. These will all come together again and “will have one mind” with the Beast. 

They will all “rule one hour with the Beast.” In the story of Nimrod, Noahs son Shem sent out a bounty hunt for Nimrod because he was sacrificing babies to Moloch. When Nimrod was finally killed, his body parts were delivered to all of the provinces below in the land of Shinar. But in the last days, this “image of a man” shown to Daniel is none other than Nimrod being put back together again!

1.) Babel (Iraq)
2.) Erech (Turkey)
3.) Accad (Baghdad)
4.) Calneh (Northern Syria)
5.) Shinar (Mesopotamia)
6.) Asshur (Assyria)
7.) Ninevah (Persia & Arabia)
8.) Rehoboth (Beer-Sheba southeast of the Dead Sea)
9.) Calah (Northern Iraq)
10.) Resen (Macedonia)

All of the above regions that once comprised Nimrod’s kingdom later on became the “two iron legs” (Daniel 2:40-43) of the Roman Empire. 

There was the “Eastern Leg” (Ottoman or Byzantine Empire) and there was also the “Western Leg” called “The Holy Roman Empire.” And so when prophecy states that the Anti-Messiah will be the “King of Assyria” (Isaiah 31:8), I believe that this is an allusion to Nimrod. 

It is not necessarily going to be someone who comes from that region but he will be the embodiment of a “revived Nimrod” typified in the Roman Papacy who will rule over these regions once again in the latter times. 

In the same way that John the Baptist came in the role of EliYaHuW (Elijah), but he himself was not Elijah, the scriptures often use “types and shadows” to give us a hint. 

Hence the term “King of Assyria” will come to mean the Roman Papacy when he once again rules over these “ten toes” just as Nimrod did and just as the demonic principality of Rome once ruled over this region. We can accurately say that Nimrod was “The King of Babylon, the King of Persia, the King of Assyria, the King of Saturnia (Rome)” etc.

Nimrod’s ten provinces are the “ten toes” described in Daniel 2 and in Revelation 13 &17 the “ten horns” all come together again as the One World Religion & Government. Nimrod, the false Messiah will be revived again through the Papacy.

On October 24th 2011 Pope Benedict XVI’s called for a “New World Order”:

What makes Pope Benedict XVI think he has the authority to call for this “one world government and religion?” It is because the throne of the Papacy is “a type of Nimrod” out of the bottomless pit!

According to ancient tradition, Saturn (Nimrod) fled from his pursuers to Italy. The Apennine Mountains of Italy were anciently named the “The Mountains of Nembrod or Nimrod.”

Nimrod briefly hid out at the site where Rome was later built. The ancient name of Rome, before it was rebuilt in 753 B.C., was Saturnai -- the site of Saturn’s (Nimrod’s) hiding. There he was found and slain for his crimes. And herein lies the clue! 

Nimrod was killed in Rome and that is where he will be revived (resurrected once again) in the last days. Our Messiah explained a principle about a “a seed falling to the ground and dying” before it resurrects and bears fruit (John 12:24). Satan the great counterfeiter will do the same thing! 

In the 3rd Century during the reign of the Roman Emperor Constantine, Gnostic Christians believed that Nimrod was “reincarnated” as the Messiah of Yisra’el, Yahuwshuwa, hence they made “Saint Valentine” or “Saint Ba’al-entine” of the heathen (a so-called “saint” of the church), and continued to honor him under the name of a Christian martyr. 

As you can see, Roman Catholicism secretly teaches “Another Jesus” and it is not the same Messiah of the Bible. Their Messiah is actually a reincarnation of Nimrod or Lucifer as the “New Age Jesus Christ” for all religions.

The official title for the Vatican today is called “The Seven Hills of Rome.” These seven hills are accurately translated in the Strongs Greek Concordance as “mountains.”

#3735. oros or’-os probably from an obsolete oro (to rise or “rear”; perhaps akin to 142; compare 3733); a mountain (as lifting itself above the plain): hill, mountain.

Revelation 17:9 And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.

The Catholic Encyclopedia states: “......It is within the city of Rome, called the city of seven hills, that the entire area of Vatican State proper is now confined.......By treaty with the Italian government certain other properties apart from the Vatican State are considered as territorial parts of the state of Vatican City. Since the founding of the Church there by St. Peter, the city of Rome has been the center of Christendom. The city itself is the diocese of the pope as bishop of Rome….”

Dagon, Nimrod & the Papacy

The great apostate Church of the Gospel Age, true to its Babylonian origin, has actually adopted this fish god in its ritual; for the pope on certain occasion’s manifests by his head gear that he is the direct representative of Dagon. 

As it was an indispensable rule in all idolatrous religions that the high priest should wear the insignia of the god that he worshiped, so the sculptures discovered by Layard show that the priests of Dagon were arrayed in clothing resembling fish. 

This is probably the ‘strange apparel’ referred to in Zephaniah 1:8. Berosus tells us that in the image of Dagon the head of the man appeared under the head of the fish, while Layard points out that in the case of the priests “the head of the fish formed a mitre above that of the man, while its scaly, fan-like tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed.”---(Babylon and Nineveh, p. 343)

“In the ancient legends of the Babylonians there was “Oannes” called “Lord of the Waves.” He was amphibious, having the torso and head of a man but upon his head was the head of a fish with gaping mouth and draping downward were the back of the fish, complete with scales and tail. The Sumerians called him “EA” and like Oannes - he was half fish and half man. He was called the great Fish of heaven. The Philistines called him “DAGON”, the fish god that is also mentioned in the Bible.”---ANNES; part II, Vladimir Pakhomov taken from a history of Mesopotamia Written in the 3rd Century B.C. by Berossus; A Babylonian Priest

Dagon Fish Mitre Hat Worn by Babylonian Priests

The priests of Dagon wore the same mitre hat that was worn by “Cybele.” It looked like the open mouth of a fish propped upon the priest’s head.

“He was half fish and half man. He was called the great Fish of heaven. The Philistines called him ‘DAGON’, the fish god that is also mentioned in the Bible.”---- by Berossus; A Babylonian Priest ANNES; part II Vladimir Pakhomov taken from a history of Mesopotamia Written in the 3rd Century BC

DAGON is mentioned in the Bible in at least 8 places: Joshua 19:27; Judges 16:23; 1st Samuel 5:2, 3, 4, 5, 7; 1st Chronicles 10:10

“The two-horned mitre, which the Pope wears, when he sits on the high altar at Rome and receives the adoration of the Cardinals, is the very mitre worn by the priests of Dagon, the fish-god of the Philistines and Babylonians.”---The Two Babylons ; Alexander Hislop; p. 215

Why do the Popes wear a “mitre” hat? The fact is that the origin of the hat can be traced to an ancient Babylonian fish-god named Dagon.

“...there are strong evidences that Dagon was Nimrod.... All scholars agree that the name and worship of Dagon were imported from Babylonia.”----The Two Babylons, Hislop, p. 215

“In their veneration and worship of Dagon, the high priest of paganism would actually put on a garment that had been created from a huge fish! The head of the fish formed a mitre above that of the old man, while its scaly, fan-like tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed.”---Babylon and Nineveh, Austen Henry Layard, p. 343

“The most prominent form of worship in Babylon was dedicated to Dagon, later known as Ichthys, or the fish. In Chaldean times, the head of the church was the representative of Dagon, he was considered to be infallible, and was addressed as ‘Your Holiness.’ Nations subdued by Babylon had to kiss the ring and slipper of the Babylonian god-king. The same powers and the same titles are claimed to this day by the Dalai Lama of Buddhism, and the Pope.

Moreover, the vestments of paganism, the fish mitre and robes of the priests of Dagon are worn by the Catholic bishops, cardinals and popes.”----The Wine of Babylon; Pg 9

“One need only look at Christianity to see...the Fish tradition! 

It’s under everyone’s nose. The real Priests of Dagon of old wore a mitre head dress and the Catholic religion uses this same design on their papal headdress!”----SIRIUS THE FISH TRADITION

According to Egyptian mythology, when the judges found Osiris [Nimrod] guilty of corrupting the religion of Adam and cut up his body, they threw the parts into the Nile. It was said that a fish ate one of these chunks and became transformed.

Later, Isis [Semiramis] was fishing along the river bank when she fished up a half-man, half-fish. This sea creature was Dagon, the reincarnated Nimrod.

And Dagon is the representation of Nimrod (of ancient Babylon) resurrecting out of the ocean depths as a half-man, half-fish. “Dagon is the diminutive of dag, and signifies... fish...The Babylonians believed that a being, part man and part fish, emerged from the Erythraean Sea, and appeared in Babylonia in the early days of its history Representations of this fish-god have been found among the sculptures of Nineveh. The Philistine Dagon was of a similar character.----Manners and Customs of the Bible; by James Freeman

And this also explains the symbol for Christianity, the fish - the “Ichthys” which is Dagon.

Definition – “Ichthyic” – “of, pertaining to, or characteristic of fishes; the fish world in all its orders.”---Oxford English Dictionary (C. E.)

Fish on Fridays?

The worship of Dagon also affected people’s eating habits. This may explain the mystery of why the Catholics abstain from eating fish on all days except Fridays. Whether they realize it or not, they are practicing the ancient pagan rite of worshipping Dagon.

According to the Catholic Encyclopedia:

“As to the ritual of his worship...we only know from ancient writers that, for religious reasons, most of the Syrian peoples abstained from eating fish, a practice that one is naturally inclined to connect with the worship of a fish-god.”---- The Catholic Encyclopedia, 1913, Encyclopedia Press, Inc. 

Maitreya the False Messiah Possesses the Papacy 

Pictured here is “Maitreya” the false Messiah for all religions who is appearing to people all over the world since 1984 (especially to Muslims), and he is in a Syrian body. He claims that he is “The Christ” for all religions. He also claims that “Jesus Christ of Nazareth was merely one of his previous ‘Avatars’ and one of his ‘disciples.’” See my other blog article entitled “Prophetic Dreams About Cloning & Maitreya the False Messiah.”

As you can see, the name “Maitreya” adds up to 666 in Hebrew Gematria.

The New Age Author, Lecturer, and “channeler,” Benjamin Crème cited in one of his books:

“Jesus will be here too, at home in Rome, ‘possessing’ the Pope."

The New York Times ran a full page ad as well as newspapers worldwide back in 1984 that read:

“In the last 2000 years Jesus has worked in the closest relation to the Christ, saving his time and his energy where possible and has special work to do with the Christian Church. He (Jesus) is one of the Masters who will very shortly return to outer work in the world TAKING OVER THE THRONE OF ST. PETER IN ROME. He will seek to transform the Christian Church, insofar as they are flexible enough to respond correctly to the new reality which is the return of Christ and the Masters will create.”---Benjamin Crème----“Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom.”

The Eighth King

Revelation 17:

10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space.

11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition.

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.

Here in this prophecy, Yah is showing us seven kings or empires. The Greek word for king is basillius, which means: “a base of power.”

Therefore, we can apply the meaning of these kings to individual men who are crowned as kings, or we can apply the meaning to be an empire which is a base of power.

At the time the Apostle John had this vision (around 96 A.D), five of these empires had already fallen, and the sixth empire, (the Roman Empire) was in power under Nero Caesar. The seventh king had not yet come, in John’s day. The angel told John that this seventh king will continue a short space” meaning this kingdom would not be around very long in comparison to the other empires.

The angel told John concerning the “eighth king” that he is the same beast with ten horns and seven heads. Notice how this beast is described: “the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven.” 

This means that the eighth king (empire) will be the beast with seven heads and ten horns. In other words, the eighth kingdom is the New World Order, and the head of this eighth empire is “the eighth king.” 

This eighth empire is a combination of all the other former empires, hence the phrase “even he is the eighth and is of the seven...”  This eighth king was described as “the sixth king” (Rome), but now it is being revived again, hence “of the seven.” In other words, this eighth world empire is made up of the seven former empires. See my other blog article entitled “The Eighth King.”

In the days when Daniel was being shown this vision, the Roman Empire was called “the fourth beast” (Daniel 7:23), because Daniel was only being shown the future empires, but not the ones that had fallen already. But in John the Apostle’s day, he was actually “taken up” into eternity future, past and present to see the “grand scheme” of things from all periods of time! 

In eternity, all time and space limitations are removed, and so John was able to view prophecy like one would view a diamond---from many different vantage points, and many facets.

This would then explain why the angel tells John that the empire in power is Rome, hence the phrase and one is...” while the angel told Daniel that Rome was the “fourth beast” into his future.

This beast has a past, present and future existence in prophecy. We first saw this beast in the days of Nimrods Kingdom, with the ten provinces that made up the Babylonian Empire.

The Babylonian Empire fell and was then superseded by Medo-Persia, Greece and finally Rome. Imperial Rome ceased to exist after it’s demise under Nero Caesar. But this beast came back up from the bottomless pit under the Emperor Constantine, who inspired the Roman Catholic religion combined with government.

Constantine was the first official Roman Pope giving himself the title “Pontifex Maximus” and thus the beast was once again in power. The papal government continued from 538 A.D. until 1798 A.D. for a grand total of 1,260 years. 

This would give us a partial fulfillment of the ministry of the “two witnesses” which lasts for a literal 1,260 days (Revelation 11:4). 

However, before we have the literal fulfillment, the allegory of this prophecy was fulfilled with the saints in Europe as the “two witness” remnant who were martyred for their testimony against the beast at the hands of the papacy during this period that is prophetically called “Jacob’s Time of Trouble.” Jacob’s time of trouble will be a literal 3.5 years in the last days, but I believe that it was a period of 1,260 years for the true remnant of the elect during the inquisitions.

We have seen this pattern before in history of “a day for each year” in prophecy:

Yechezqel (Ezekiel) 4:6 And when you have accomplished them, lie again on your right side, and you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Yahuwdah  (Judah) forty days: I have appointed you each day for a year.

Now that the corporate and allegorical application of this prophecy has already been seen in history, we will see it fulfilled again as a corporate body of people who are also called “The Two Witnesses.”

These two groups will consist of Ephraim & Judah (Ezekiel 37:16-17), and these two groups of saints will carry the “Double Portion Anointing” of Moses, and Elijah (Revelation 11:6). 

The angel told John who these two witnesses are. He described them as “The two candlesticks and the two olive trees.” 

We know from reading Revelation 1:20 that “The two candlesticks” are “The two overcoming Assemblies of Philadelphia & Smyrna.” 

We also know from reading Romans 11, that the two olive trees are “New Covenant Yisra’el,” as well as Gentiles who are grafted into the same olive tree.

The natural & the wild olive branches, are these sane “two olive trees.” They are the wild branches who join the Ephraim Olive tree, and the natural Yisra’elite branches who join the Judah Olive tree (Jews).

Now, let’s get back to the beast. The same beast who keeps on coming up out of the bottomless pit has come up various times in history under various empires, and Anti-Messiah rulers. 

The common denominator with this beast is that it is the same serpent that was seen in the Garden of Eden only in the body of a man. This prophecy about this beast from Genesis 3 is that it would “bruise the heel of the woman’s seed” (heel representing the inheritance of Jacob being grabbed away from Esau in the womb). 

But the woman’s seed would ultimately crush the head (authority) of this Beast once and for all at the return of Messiah. Now we get a little bit more insight into the legacy of this Beast as he is one “That was, and is not” but he will come back as the “eighth” kingdom or empire. 

This eighth empire (which used to be the sixth in John’s day) will come up again “Out of the bottomless pit” for the final showdown with the woman (Yisra’el) and the remnant of her seed (true followers of Messiah).

Then “ten horns” or empires on this beast are political powers. How do we know this? We must first establish how the word “horn” has come to be a metaphor of political power. In ancient Yisra’el, the kings were anointed by having a “horn of oil” poured out upon their heads. 

This was the method of their anointing and ordination. The animal horn was filled with olive oil and this was poured out upon their heads. We see precedence for this in prophecy as the horns are four kingdoms that have persecuted Yisra’el:

Zekaryahuw (Zechariah) 1:19 And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Yahuwdah (Judah), Yisra’el, and Yerushalayim (Jerusalem).

Zekaryahuw (Zechariah) 1:21 Then said I, What come these to do? And he spoke, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Yahuwdah (Judah), so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Yahuwdah (Judah) to scatter it.

Now that we have established the biblical definition of “horns” we can take a better look at the Beast and determine exactly what these metaphors mean.

To avoid any confusion, it is important to understand that the word “king” in the book of Revelation is interchangeably used with the word “Beast” and both words are referring to Empires. In Daniel 7:23 the angel tells Daniel that the “fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon the earth.” 

The angel told Daniel what the fourth beast was---he said it was the fourth kingdom on earth. Hence we know from this scripture that “beast” means “kingdom” or empire.

Daniel was shown this vision about 600 years earlier before John was given the very same revelation. But John was being shown the past, present and future application of the Beast in one panorama of events that culminate right up until Messiah's return.

Revelation 1:1-2 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.

In the year 96 A.D., or thereabouts, the apostle John saw a “beast” with “ten horns” which was like a “leopard with the feet of a bear, and the mouth of a lion”:

Daniel’s vision was given to him around the year 538 B.C. In Daniel 7:17, Daniel saw 4 beasts/ kings or empires which were still in the future in Daniel’s time:

1.) Babylonian Empire-the Lion with eagle’s wings, King Nebuchadnezzar, and his son Belshazzar.

2.) Medo-Persian Empire-the Bear, Darius the Mede, King Ahasuerus the Persian, Cyrus combined the two.

3.) Grecian Empire- the Leopard under Alexander the Great.

4.) Roman Empire-a terrible beast, dreadful, exceedingly strong, defies zoological classification; under Caesars Augustus, Julius, Tiberius & Nero and continuing under Constantine and successive popes.

Daniyel (Daniel) 7:

3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.

The first was like a lion, (Babylonian Empire) 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.

5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, (Medo-Persian Empire) 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.

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

7 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 broke 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.

Here we see that the 4th Beast in Daniel’s vision is the Roman Empire which in Daniel’s time had not yet come, but in John’s day, this beast was in “the present” as the 6th beast. 

The angel of YaHuWaH showed Daniel that this beast would be “diverse” in that it would combine the other three empires (Babylon, Medo-Persia, & Greece) as the 4th beast had all of the physical characteristics of the first three beasts, combined. 

John also saw this same beast that was like the leopard (Greece), yet it had the “feet of a bear” (Medo-Persia) and the “mouth of a lion” (Babylon).

Revelation 13:1-3 … 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.

Here, in Revelation 13:1-3, John saw that the 6th beast, (Roman Empire) had all the characteristics of the first three empires, in Daniel’s vision combined: like a leopard (Greece), with the feet of a bear (Medo-Persia) and a mouth like a lion (speaks arrogantly like Babylon).

Daniyel (Daniel) 7:

8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn,(Anti-Messiah) 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....

24.... 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.

The 4th Beast in Daniel’s vision would “subdue” three empires. This means the Roman Empire subdued Greece, Medo-Persia, and Babylon. Out of these “ten horns” or ten nations came a “little horn” which had eyes like a man and a mouth speaking “great things.” This “little horn” represents is the Anti-Messiah which will be “the man of sin....the son of perdition”:

2nd Thessalonians 2:1-12: Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Master Yahuwshuwa Mashiyach (Messiah), and by our gathering together unto him (resurrection), that you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled...

....Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition (the Anti-Messiah); who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called Elohiym, or that is worshipped; so that he as Elohiym, sits in the temple of Elohiym (the 3rd Jewish Temple) showing himself that he is Elohiym...

Just before the 1st Resurrection (catching away of the bride), 1st  Thessalonians 4:16-17 tells us there will come a “falling away” or apostasy. The word “apostasia” in Greek means “defection from the truth.” 

It does not mean that people will stop attending church or reading their Bibles. It means that there will be a greater and greater deviation from the truth. 

YaHuWaH’s pure doctrine will no longer be preached from the pulpits, and we see that this has happened from the time that Sha’ul (Paul) first wrote to the Thessalonians and even more so today. Even the Bible Versions have been corrupted and contaminated with false teachings.

In Matthew 24:14-21 Yahuwshuwa said: “…And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come...…When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand) Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains…for then shall be great tribulation...”

Yahuwshuwa here is speaking about the same “Abomination of Desolation” standing in the holy place as in 2nd Thessalonians 2:14 & Revelation 13:15. We are being warned once again about the “son of perdition” who will sit in the temple of Elohiym, declaring himself to be the creator the almighty Yah.

In 1995, this article entitled was published entitled “Moving Towards a Third Temple” by Lambert Dolphin, where he quotes on page 2 of 36, 2nd paragraph:

“...It is an open secret that the Pope aspires to set up his world headquarters there, having claimed for many years that the Holy Land has all along really been under Roman Catholic ‘stewardship’…”

This article fulfills prophecy as we realize that the office of the Papacy has always had ambitions to “sit in the temple” as “the most high” or “the substitute for Christ.” 

The reason for this is because, the Roman Catholic Church, since it’s foundations with Constantine, established a false doctrine called “Replacement Theology” wherein, the Yahuwdiy (Jews) are deemed as “rejected by Yah forever.” 

This false doctrine also purports that the promises that YaHuWaH gave to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob have been instead conferred upon the Catholic Church. 

While the true born-again believers are “grafted into the olive tree” with Yisra’el, they have not replaced “Old Covenant Yisra’el.” The final Anti-Messiah Pope will seek to annihilate the remnant of the woman (Yisra’el) and her seed.

According to author Mary Stewart Relphe, Ph.D of When Your Money Fails, the formula for calculating “the number of the beast” involves using the alpha-numerics of either Hebrew, Latin & Greek depending on the language of the respective empire or leader. 

When looking for a common theme for all of the false Messiah’s of the past, we can assign a numerical value to each character in their name and come up with the same number-----666.

Mary Stewart Relphe explains in her book,“When Your Money Fails” that she had been able to find four historical Anti-Messiah, whose names add up to 666 when translated into Hebrew, Latin or Greek.

Historical Anti-Messiahs Whose Names Add up to 666

1.) Nimrod- (a descendant of Noah) His birthday was celebrated December 25th in ancient Babylon and in Rome as Saturnalia; He had babies sacrificed to Molech.

2.) King Nebuchadnezzar- erected a golden statue of himself and demanded worship; Those who refused to bow to the image were placed in a furnace.

3.) Antiochus the IV- a Greek-Syrian who defiled the 2nd Jewish Temple in 164-167 B.C. with pagan idols, also purported he was Zeus reincarnated on December 25th.

4.) Caesar Nero- had followers of Messiah tortured and eaten by lions for entertainment. He also claimed to be a reincarnation of “Sol Invictus” (the invincible sun) or Saturn the pagan sun-deity.

The Four Horns Are the Islamic Nations Out of the 10 Horns of the Beast

Zekaryahuw (Zechariah) 1:

18 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.

19 And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Yahuwdah (Judah), Yisra’el, and Yerushalayim (Jerusalem).

Who are these 4 horns who have scattered Jerusalem, Judah & Yisra’el? They are the former empires which today are Islamic nations:

1.) Egypt
2.) Assyria
3.) Babylon
4.) Medo-Persia

And now, the true 
“mother” of all harlot religions is revealed!

It should not come 
as any surprise that Islam was created by the Papacy in the 6th Century.

Pictured to the left, is Pope John Paul II kissing the Muslim Koran. If you have any doubts, see the links below: 

I have illustrated that the Papacy is indeed the office of the Anti-Messiah and the biblical false prophet was groomed in the 6th Century by the Vatican. He is none other than Mohammed himself! 

You may be having a difficult time believing that the origins of Rome (previously Saturnia) is the “seed-bed” for Nimrod’s future resurrection from the bottomless pit. 

But if you have any doubt, you can read below about the origin of Edom, Ishmael, Esau, Babylon, and Rome.

Who Are the Ancestors of Rome? The answer may surprise you!

There are other sources that I found which agree about a biblical Pangaea & Peleg found below at these websites:

  1. I found your article "eye-opening", shocking, and a Biblical chronology entirely fact-based; steeped in logic!!

    An awesome read - thank you!
