Someone once asked me, "What is the purpose of prophecy?" To which I responded, "To prepare us for things to come."And I truly believe that. So, if that is true, do you really think God would leave us hanging concerning the details of major events in what we call the End Times?

In Mark 13:19 Jesus said that there has never been a time like those coming days and there never will be again after they have finished. That's pretty serious! Therefore, when looking at the key players that have been written about concerning those Last Days, should we not find some major clues to help us determine who they are? Should we not be able to look at Scripture and determine EXACTLY who the coming Anti-Christ is going to be, so that we are not deceived? Obviously, I believe the answer is a resounding, YES!

So far we have seen that prior to the Flood, Lucifer and his angels did most of the "dirty work" themselves. They had direct interaction with humans, leading them into sin, death and destruction. But after the Flood, we saw that a MAN rose up, empowered by the Devil to oppose God and His children. He did this at the Tower of Babel. Thus, the first Anti-Christ figure arose. His name was Nimrod. There, he tried to kill God and set up a New Order with himself serving as the god of this world. The work of evil began to take place through a human being (apparently of Nephilim descent).

After God foiled Nimrod's plans, the population of the world was divided into 70 nations, each ruled by an angelic principality and each people group telling stories of the god-man who was their leader. He went by many names. Each of those names carried with it a legend, story or myth that involved the concept of resurrection.

We ended the last section by drawing attention to some of the various names Nimrod has been known by, focusing specifically on the names Gilgamesh, Osiris and Orion.

What I find interesting about the usual depiction of Orion is that he has a lion in one hand and a club in the other. He is also facing Taurus the bull. Bull worship was very popular in the days leading up to and during the time of Moses. Bull worship was also strongly associated with Baal (who is yet another name for Nimrod as noted above). So, here you have a mighty hunter facing a bull about to smash a lion... or so he thinks.

We know that one of the titles for Jesus is, "The Lion of the Tribe of Judah." Even as we look at the imagery to the left and we contemplate the Last Days, it may be tempting to think that the Anti-Christ is winning the battle. He has his hand raised to strike the Savior. It looks pretty bleak doesn't it?

But recently, the Lord brought me to another passage of Scripture that fits this analogy perfectly. Now, when I look at the arrogance of Nimrod/Orion, I can not help but think of Revelation 5:5:

Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed..."

And when we keep reading, we are reminded that we win in the end. The club of Nimrod will never strike the head of the Lion. In fact, just the opposite is going to happen. The seed of the woman will finally crush the head of the serpent, just as the first prophecy in the Bible says![1] But I'm getting ahead of myself.

In the Old Testament, one phrase stands out above all others as a description for the Anti-Christ. That phrase is, "the Assyrian." Look again at the picture of Orion and consider this passage from Isaiah 10:5:

“Woe to the Assyrian, the rod of my anger, in whose hand is the club of my wrath!" [emphasis mine]

The Lord goes on to address this individual again in chapter 14:24,25:

The LORD Almighty has sworn,

 “Surely, as I have planned, so it will be,
and as I have purposed, so it will happen.
I will crush the Assyrian in my land;
on my mountains I will trample him down.
His yoke will be taken from my people,
and his burden removed from their shoulders.”
[emphasis mine]

There is much that could be written concerning the Assyrian in scripture, but this is all I really need to write about here to make my point. For more amazing insights on the Assyrian, click here to read the article Peter Goodgame wrote for Raiders News Network.

Nimrod was known as a mighty hunter. Orion was known as the mighty hunter. And so was Gilgamesh. Notice the quote in the middle bump-out of the BBC article above. It is from a portion of Tablet 1 of the Epic of Gilgamesh. The extended version of that passage reads:

Who can compare with him in kingliness?
Who can say like Gilgamesh: "I am King!"?

Whose name, from the day of his birth, was called "Gilgamesh"?
Two-thirds of him is god, one-third of him is human.
[emphasis mine]

Compare that with, Revelation 13:3-4:

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.

Note: According to the Book of Jasher, Esau cut off the head of Nimrod/Gilgamesh/Osiris/Orion![2]

And they worshipped the dragon
which gave power unto the beast:
and they worshipped the beast, saying,
Who is like unto the beast?
Who is able to make war with him?

[emphasis mine]

Why would the whole world call a man "the Beast" and follow him? I believe this will happen because:

  • so many cultures already have some sort of connection to him (through myth, legend and/or religion)
  • something seriously freaky happened - like a mortal "head wound" being healed and
  • the man was a giant - a beast!
  • when this 4,000 year old "beast" rises up from under the Giza plateau (out of the water), it will truly be an astonishing, miraculous sight! A modern day, giant Frankenstein, god-man rising from the dead!

Cue the freaky music and the thunder sound effects as the people shout, "It's aliiiiiiiiive!"

Let's take a closer look at this "Beast." Revelation 17 confirms once and for all who the End Time Anti-Christ is going to be. Further, I will show you what I believe to be absolute proof, straight from the lips of Jesus that seems to confirm this theory.

Revelation 17 is where John sees the vision of the Beast with seven heads. He is confused as to the meaning of this vision, so the angel tells him what it means.

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
- Revelation 17:8-11 (KJV)
[emphasis mine]

The Beast that was introduced in Revelation 13 is described here in Revelation 17 in more detail. So here we have the "guardrails" or boundaries within which we must stay when considering who the Anti-Christ was, is and will be.

Note that the angel describes the seven headed beast by saying first that we must have wisdom when looking at it. In other words, we are challenged to think this through. The angel then goes on to say that there are seven kings that we need to pay attention to. In context, the creature described here is one with seven heads, meaning there have been seven individuals in history that were all of one "body" - that of Anti-Christ. The angel tells John that five have fallen, one currently is (at the time of John) and another will come, but reign only for a short time.

Peter Goodgame believes the following individuals represent the seven "heads" of the Beast (and I tend to agree).

1. Nimrod - without a doubt, he is the first anti-Christ figure described in the Bible.

2. The Pharaoh of Egypt (at the time of the Exodus) - again a man arose, thinking himself to be a god and whose motives were to enslave and wipe out the children of the One True God.

3. Sennacherib - the king of Assyria who also thought himself to be a god and who sought to rise up against the Holy One of Israel... only to instead be humbled by the Lord and sent home - where he was murdered by his own sons.

4. The king of Tyre - another king first described as a man who thought himself to be a god, then described as Lucifer himself in the Bible.

5. Antiochus Epiphenes - set up an alter to Zeus in the Holy of Holies and offered up a pig as sacrifice creating an abomination in God's Holy Temple. This of course foreshadows what the last Anti-Christ will do in the Third Temple.

Those are arguably the most likely candidates for the "five (who) have fallen."

6. There is some debate about the one who "now is." The identity of this person depends on when John actually wrote the Book of Revelation. It must have been Caesar. But which Caesar was it? Nero or Domitian? The belief I hold to is that it was Nero. He most definitely fits the description of a demon possessed madman, hellbent on destroying God's people.

7. The one who "has not yet come" and shall reign for a short period of time, I believe has to be Adolf Hitler. Again, he definitely fits the description of a demon possessed, viscous world leader who blatantly stood in the face of God. Hitler murdered millions of the Holy One of Israel's people, and he did so in the manner of Luciferian, occult, ritualistic-like fashion - including massive human sacrifice. If he is just a foretaste of what's to come, the last Anti-Christ will truly be a monster, a "weapon of mass destruction" unlike anything ever seen before!

So, here we have all seven (most likely) candidates from history. These are the seven heads of the Beast. But notice the next verse, that very few Bible scholars ever seem to pay much attention to:

And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven...

It says that the Beast that was, and is not (and yet shall be) is the EIGHTH who is OF the SEVEN. Actually, the terminology of "was and is NOT and yet shall be" is mentioned a few times in Revelation 17. I believe this is there for those who "have wisdom" to take notice. First of all, it is the antithesis of the description for Jesus in the first few chapters as the One who "was and IS and is to come." Second, it fits the numerous beliefs of the ancient world concerning their dying and resurrecting sun god. But the fact that Revelation 17:11 says that he is "of the seven" means the last and most (in)famous Anti-Christ has to be one of the seven listed above... and will probably embody the traits of all of them combined!

Now, if we look at the description of Revelation 13 again, we find that this individual had a mortal head wound that was miraculously healed. So, looking at the list above, we need to ask which of these had a mortal head wound?

1. Nimrod - Yes!

2. Pharaoh of Egypt - No!

3. Sennacherib (king of Assyria) - No!

4. King of Tyre - No!

5. Antiochus Epiphenes - No!

6. Nero - Yes! (sort of) It is said that he stabbed himself in the throat.

7. Hitler - Yes! (sort of) History says he shot himself in the head, but recent DNA, forensic evidence seems to suggest otherwise.

But for the sake of argument, let's say we have 3 out of 7 who fit that description:

1. Nimrod

2. Nero

3. Hitler

Now, which of those three is an Assyrian who has any connection to Babylon? Only one. Nimrod.

Note: While Sennacherib was indeed an Assyrian, he never had a mortal wound to the head.

Even if the above list of "candidates" is not accurate, I believe a very strong case can be made for at least the first and the last names on that list. We can debate all day long about the rest. The bottom line is, no matter what list you put together for the seven, no person in the recorded history of this planet fits ALL descriptions for the Anti-Christ better than Nimrod. And if we were to apply Occam's razor, "the simplest explanation is more likely the correct one" to this analysis, I believe the results would speak for themselves. So, we can forget any and all notions, theories and/or ideas regarding any current political figure walking this earth. Obama is not the Anti-Christ. Neither is Ahmadinejad, Osama bin Laden, Putin, Prince William or anyone else. No other actor on the world stage fits the part better then Nimrod.

Perhaps the biggest and most recent revelation concerning Nimrod as the Anti-Christ is the "coincidence?" concerning his "percentages" as a god-man. My wife and I were discussing something this morning and she kept talking about the ratio of two-thirds. All of a sudden, another piece of the puzzle fell into place!

"This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666." - Revelation 13:18 (NIV) [emphasis mine]

Notice how the Epic of Gilgamesh states that he was 2/3 god and 1/3 man. Right there you have two extremely important number percentages. One third is (approximately) 33.3%. In the Illuminati and in Secret Societies in general, 33 is a signifacant number - and one we will deal with a lot more In the blog I've titled, "Jesus By The Numbers" (coming soon). In that section, I will show the significance of the number 33 as it pertains to the Nephilim, to Jesus as well as to the rise of the Nephilim and their Anti-Christ. More on that later. Now, as to Nimrod/Gilgamesh's other percentage, you probably already know where I'm going with it. Yes. Two-thirds. If we "calculate the number of the beast" with that "insight" in mind we end up with approximately 66.6% or 666!

All right, let's bring it all together now. We've already built a case for worldwide worship of this man by many other names. He was considered a "god-man" by many cultures. Part god - part man? Hmmmm. Where have we heard that before? Jesus Christ is both God and man. Both were called "the King of kings and Lord of lords." Both have a cross as a symbol. Both are known as a dying and resurrecting figure (though Nimrod has yet to do so). One is the Christ. One is the Anti-Christ... whose "god-number" just so happens to calculate out to 666.

Earlier, I promised to show you something directly from the lips of Jesus that I believe proves all of what I am saying here is true. Consider Matthew 24:24-28 where Jesus says,

"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. (In other words, PAY ATTENTION!) Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together." (KJV) [emphasis mine]

Notice Jesus says, "Behold, I have told you before." I like the way the New Living Translation renders that first part. Backing up to verse 23 it says,

“Then if anyone tells you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah,’ or ‘There he is,’ don’t believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones. See, I have warned you about this ahead of time." [emphasis mine]

In other words, I believe Jesus is saying, "PAY ATTENTION! This is serious guys! Even YOU could be deceived by what is going to happen!"

He then mentions the desert. Gilgamesh was found in the desert.

He mentions "the secret chambers." The Tomb of Osiris was found and it most certainly was/is a secret chamber. Click Here for some more interesting information and videos about this find.

But the last statement Jesus says makes no sense at all in any other context. He says,

"For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together." [emphasis mine]

The correct translation is "eagles." But some translators of modern versions of the Bible changed the word to "vultures" due to the apparent assumption that eagles don't go after dead things (i.e. a carcase). As a bird of prey, they are known for hunting living things - though I have been informed by a number of bird watchers, that eagles are also scavengers and they do indeed go after dead things as well. Regardless, at least on the surface, it would appear that modern translators changed the Scripture to match their flawed understanding concerning the "bird" and the carcase. The truth is, Jesus knew exactly what He was saying (imagine that)! And I believe the Master prophetically looked forward in time and saw "eagles" gathered around a very specific corpse.

The eagle has been the emblem of choice for nearly every major world empire on this planet, past and present. The eagle is of course the national symbol for America.

Some of our elite military units proudly display the eagle in various places on their combat uniforms. Colonels wear the eagle on their shoulders and the eagle is also prominently displayed on the hat, collar, chest, shoulders and buttons of our military's dress uniforms.

Americans proudly display their blessed eagle all over the place! From our currency to our national seal, government buildings, monuments, the uniforms our soldiers wear, motorcycles, flags, flag poles... you simply can not escape the American Eagle imagery.

Therefore, is it any wonder that Jesus described "eagles" when He looked forward in time and described what He saw concerning the (revival of the) one who would claim to be the savior of the world in the Last Days?

Where are America's (eagle wearing) soldiers now? They are in Iraq - Babylon! And we went there one month after supposedly finding the tomb of Gilgamesh!

At prophecy meetings, people always like to ask, "Where is America in prophecy?" After all we are (at least at the time of this writing) the world's "super power" nation. Should we not imagine that America would therefore be mentioned in prophecies concerning the Last Days? Especially if we are to believe we are now in those Last Days (or rapidly approaching them)? The usual assumption is that something knocks America out of that "super power" status and thus we are not a relevant player in the End Times scenario. While I will grant that could be a possibility, I believe a stronger case can be made for America's role in the Last Days being depicted in that passage of Matthew 24:24-28. Unfortunately, if this is true, that means we are not playing on the right team. Because the implication then is that America is busy resurrecting the Anti-Christ and setting up his future empire! I will elaborate on that later in the section called, "The Omega Plan."

This conclusion sounds harsh I know. But considering the Masonic (occult) roots of our nation's founding, the layout of our government's capital city, the NUMEROUS monuments and statues that glorify Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman deities and all that has happened since 9/11 to set up a New World Order, it's hard not to come to that conclusion.

Let me pause for a moment here and encourage you not to question my Patriotism. Just because I am pointing out facts that are hard to accept concerning our nation, that does not mean I am anti-America. I love my country!

I am a third generation Army veteran who proudly served this country for eight years of my life. Though I never had to see combat (thank God), I was willing to lay my life down to protect this country (and still am) if need be. In fact, at one point in my military career, I volunteered to serve in Desert Storm (three times). So, again I say, I love this country and please do not question my Patriotism. But just because I love this country, that does not mean I agree with everything our government does or has done in the past. And the Constitution that I swore to uphold, defend and protect, affords me the right to express these views... at least for now it does anyway.

For a better understanding of where I am coming from, and before you are tempted to crucify me for making such statements as those made regarding our country's founding and her on-going involvement with all things concerning Osiris/Nimrod, I highly recommend that you watch the following two movies by film maker Chris Pinto:


The New Atlantis


Riddles in Stone

Through these two videos, I believe Chris Pinto has done a magnificent job of exposing America's role in the "End Game."

I believe I've made a solid case for Nimrod being the first and most certainly the last Anti-Christ. I will therefore conclude this section with a quote from Peter Goodgame's "Assyrian" article:

Following the successful American invasion of Iraq, and subsequent occupation, there are many Bible scholars who are looking at the end-times prophecies of this region with renewed interest. Many of them believe that the Bible predicts the literal re-building of Babylon—the "great harlot" of Revelation 17:1—along the banks of the Euphrates River. They follow along with the views of Arthur W. Pink who, in 1923 in his comprehensive study of the Antichrist, pointed to Zechariah 5:5-11 which speaks of the habitation of a wicked woman being established "in the land of Shinar." Will ancient Babylon be rebuilt in the last days and somehow emerge in control of the political and economic structures of the world in fulfillment of Revelation 17-18?

Of course now that the US Military controls Iraq we can be sure that if a rebuilt Babylon does emerge it will happen only through the support of the US Government!

A note from the author:

This work represents some of my research, thoughts and ideas regarding history and the End Times. Do not take anything I write as the "Gospel Truth." I encourage you to be a “good Berean” and study these things out for yourself to come to your own conclusions.

DISCLAIMER: While I do believe that the books contained in The Holy Bible were Divinely inspired and written by men, I do not necessarily hold to the idea that only the 66 books we now have in our (Protestant) Bibles are the sole Divinely inspired books of antiquity. For instance, the King James Version (on which I was raised) used to have 80 books in it. Today, we only have 66. Many editions of the Bible throughout the centuries contained or left out different books. God will not contradict Himself. Therefore, the fact that there have been so many different "canons" of Scripture over the centuries proves to me that the acquisition and accumulation of Scripture has not always been Divinely inspired.

I also do not believe that any one version of our English Bible is 100% correct and accurate in its TRANSLATION. Granted, some are better than others. But Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic are all very complex languages and it is often hard for English as a language to do the text justice. Thus, I find that comparing different English translations can help show us a variety of ways of looking at what was originally written. I am mentioning this because throughout this series of blogs I will be referencing different versions of English Bibles as well as taking a look at some of the books not currently considered "canon" in our (Protestant) Bibles. Having grown up in a "KJV only" environment, I felt the need to say this up front. I pray that does not hinder you in any way and that this series of blogs is interesting, enlightening and encouraging to you.
