First of all, a short lesson in world history might be in order; and, since I’m credentialed to teachrepparttar subject (man, I’m even certified as a “No Child Left Behind” instructor inrepparttar 143138 subject), I already have my reward . . . but let’s take a gander atrepparttar 143139 evolution ofrepparttar 143140 Image seen in Daniel and alluded to in Hal’s above and most recent remarks. What Hal alluded to wasrepparttar 143141 Image of Daniel andrepparttar 143142 allusion torepparttar 143143 Ten Toes of that same Image and its counterpart found inrepparttar 143144 book of Revelation where it is referred to asrepparttar 143145 10 Toes/10 Kings/10 Horns (Daniel 2:41-42; 7:7, 20, 24; Revelation 12:3; 13:1; 17:3, 7, 12, 16) The above picture ofrepparttar 143146 Image seen byrepparttar 143147 Gentile world leader ofrepparttar 143148 Neo-Babylonian Empire (Nebuchadnezzar) envisionedrepparttar 143149 development and/or evolution of Gentile World Power set withinrepparttar 143150 context ofrepparttar 143151 Jewish exile; and,repparttar 143152 commencement of “Jerusalem trodden under foot ofrepparttar 143153 Gentiles untilrepparttar 143154 times ofrepparttar 143155 Gentiles be fulfilled” (Luke 21:24; Revelation 11:2) is/was confirmed by Jesus in His discourse onrepparttar 143156 latter days, and, subsequently, referred to by John inrepparttar 143157 Apocalypse. The point ofrepparttar 143158 matter here, insofar as metals relate to this revelation, is thatrepparttar 143159 Babylonian head of gold evolves intorepparttar 143160 silver ofrepparttar 143161 Medo-Persian Empire, which in turn evolves intorepparttar 143162 Grecian bronze, and ultimately intorepparttar 143163 two legs of iron represented byrepparttar 143164 Roman Empire. This imagery of Gentile World Powers and their evolution is decidedly a progression of WESTERN CIVILIZATION, not of Islam, Asian, African, or any other civilization which would/has dominatedrepparttar 143165 planet (thank you Dr. Huntington)! Next,repparttar 143166 Ten Toes of this Image are described as a mixture of both clay and iron—some strong and some weak—and clearly are an extension ofrepparttar 143167 legs ofrepparttar 143168 Roman Empire from whence they protrude (Daniel 2:33-45). It is likewise true that these 10 toes/horns are representative of ten kings and that these ten kings are European powers which in some way, shape and form constituterepparttar 143169 original environs or sphere’s of landed-influence ofrepparttar 143170 Roman Empire. Up to this point Hal and Doug concur; however, it is precisely at this point our convergence has a drastic departure! Rome’s alleged demise in 476 A.D. (The Decline and Fall of Rome by Edward Gibbon) is, putting it mildly, a distortion ofrepparttar 143171 historical account. Rome NEVER died—her simple metamorphosis, and I hasten to add, its ability to BORG (i.e., absorb all its enemies intorepparttar 143172 “collective”) all that came against her (be theyrepparttar 143173 Phoenician Merchants,repparttar 143174 Greeks and their culture, andrepparttar 143175 Christian religion). The idea that was Rome may have “outwardly” transformed, butrepparttar 143176 ideal of Western Empire never ceased—Western Man, though seemingly weakened (clay), nevertheless, through world colonization, began to WALK THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH! (i.e., some clay nations were weaker in Europe than some ofrepparttar 143177 “iron nations” or “toes” . . . for example, France was stronger than Belgium). Yes,repparttar 143178 Image began to walk—pray tell, for what purpose do those feet and toes stand? Just to stand? No, no, no—a thousand times no! “Them feet and toes are for walkin’.” And, walk they did—all overrepparttar 143179 planet: Africa,repparttar 143180 New World (North and South America),repparttar 143181 Middle East (to this day), Asia, Australasia,repparttar 143182 vast regions ofrepparttar 143183 Pacific and even Antarctica. Scarcely an inch of earth escapedrepparttar 143184 Image! A little walk through Africa will assist your memory: (Note: All maps can be found onrepparttar 143185 graphic version @ …..andrepparttar 143186 Spanish (New World only) to name but a few (especiallyrepparttar 143187 “three horns”): Now, thanks to our insightful brother and co-conspirator, Brian Piltz in Seattle, we discover a most revelatory exegesis ofrepparttar 143188 following Scripture found in Daniel 7:8, 20-24: “‘I was consideringrepparttar 143189 horns, and there was another horn, a little (i.e., “younger”) one, coming up among them, before whom three ofrepparttar 143190 first horns were plucked out byrepparttar 143191 roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes likerepparttar 143192 eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words’” ((vs. 8)—Note: This is, I affirm, an immediate introduction ofrepparttar 143193 Antichrist himself and of his base/kingdom.) “‘andrepparttar 143194 ten horns that were on its head, andrepparttar 143195 other horn which came up (i.e.,repparttar 143196 ELEVENTH HORN), before which three fell, namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth which spoke pompous words, whose appearance was greater than his fellows. I was watching; andrepparttar 143197 same horn was making war againstrepparttar 143198 saints, and prevailing against them, untilrepparttar 143199 Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor ofrepparttar 143200 saints ofrepparttar 143201 Most High, andrepparttar 143202 time came forrepparttar 143203 saints to possessrepparttar 143204 kingdom.’ Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devourrepparttar 143205 whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces. The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different fromrepparttar 143206 first ones, and shall subdue three kings’” (vs. 20-24). The sequence of disclosures recorded in Daniel 7 leave little doubt thatrepparttar 143207 “little horn” who shall arise after them (i.e., afterrepparttar 143208 Ten Horns/Toes) shall be different fromrepparttar 143209 first ones (i.e.,repparttar 143210 first Ten Horns), and this “younger horn” shall subdue or “root up” three kings. Brother Piltz deduced that these three kings hail not “from Orient are” but arerepparttar 143211 three dominant European empires which encompassed nearly all of North America: The English,repparttar 143212 French, andrepparttar 143213 Spanish--Britain, France and Spain. Throughrepparttar 143214 Revolutionary War,repparttar 143215 Spanish-American War, and evenrepparttar 143216 French and Indian War (among other disquieting connivances),repparttar 143217 Americans “subdued” these three kings/horns/toes and effectively overrepparttar 143218 last century and intorepparttar 143219 21st Century, with their pompous declarations and fierce countenance and soon-to-be revealed World Leader/Antichrist, will/have devouredrepparttar 143220 whole planet!

Oh, well, you getrepparttar 143221 point: England, France and Spain were uprooted byrepparttar 143222 younger horn when this horn DEVOURED (i.e., uprooted or subdued)repparttar 143223 original three. Sure, it took a while, butrepparttar 143224 ten horns who arose fromrepparttar 143225 fourth beast (i.e.,repparttar 143226 original Roman Empire), andrepparttar 143227 three horns/kings (ofrepparttar 143228 ten horns) who originally dominated North America eventually gave way torepparttar 143229 one who arose after them (Daniel 7:24): The United States of America. I conclude: Some timesrepparttar 143230 most obvious isrepparttar 143231 most difficult to see! Let me be perfectly clear—count them, please: 1. England 2. France 3. Spain 4. Portugal 5. Belgium 6. Netherlands 7. Denmark 8. Italy 9. Germany 10. Russia . . . walkedrepparttar 143232 face ofrepparttar 143233 entire planet and colonizedrepparttar 143234 world! These primary nations’ histories are wrought with expansion and colonization—to adjudge otherwise is a complete revision of world history. (For remainder ofrepparttar 143235 article go to:

The Antichrist is coming

However, your site subscribes to a new heresy by denyingrepparttar future materiality of “The Antichrist” whose titles in Scripture are innumerable! I urge you and brethren inrepparttar 143137 Churches of Christ to “come to your spiritual senses” and acknowledgerepparttar 143138 precise error which Satan desires you to embrace—for if he is unable to dissuade you ofrepparttar 143139 Son of Man’s physicality, he will persuade you to deny his own personal materiality inrepparttar 143140 body of Antichrist where he shall findrepparttar 143141 most fertile of human temples—a temple which he shall utterly desecrate by his counterfeit incarnation; and hence,repparttar 143142 prophesied “abomination of desolation” spoken of by both Daniel and Jesus shall take place (Daniel 11:31, 12:11; Matthew 24:15, Mark 13:14).

This future Antichrist is as physical and as spiritual a reality asrepparttar 143143 Son of Man andrepparttar 143144 Spirit of Christ!
