Daniel: Trusting God
01/25/2017, by John Kincaid
Lesson 1031: Daniel 2:40-45, Pt.4
Countless hours have been spent trying to identify the Antichrist based on Rev.13:18.
The candidates included Nero Caesar, Hitler, Stalin, Gorbachev, even Ronald Reagan.
But many antichrists had already come by 100 AD.
1 John 2:22, 4:3; 2 John 7
1 John 2:18 NIV this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come.
Antichrist denies that Jesus is the Christ, refuses to acknowledge Him, and deceives.
Only God knows when Christ will return; Satan does not know the day. Matt 24:36
Thus, Satan must have a potential candidate for the Antichrist ready in every generation.
The European Common Market may or may not be the final version of the empire.
“Those kings” (2:44) will be the 10 “toes” ruling in the last generation of Gentile power.
