The Antichrist is a Prince
But he is not a prince of a guy.
By Craig C. White
The Antichrist is actually a prince. He will become king of the final gentile world empire; otherwise known as the New World Order. The New World Order is a world government that covers the territories of the ancient Roman Empire. The Antichrist is called a “little horn” in Daniel 7:8.
Dan 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, 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.
Horns commonly represent kings in bible prophecy. The “little horn” is a secondary leader, for instance a prince, vice-president, prime minister, or governor. The term “little horn” is applied to Antiochus Epiphanies in Daniel 8:9. “Antiochus Epiphanies” was the son of “Antiochus the Great” the king of the Seleucid dynasty (1/4 of the Grecian empire, headquartered in Syria). Antiochus Epiphanies was initially a prince in the Seleucid dynasty until he manipulated his way onto the throne. This “little horn” will evidently take away or usurp the authority of three of the first ten kings. This “little horn” has a “mouth speaking great things”. He blasphemes God, “showing himself that he is God” (Daniel 11:36-37). This little horn is obviously the Antichrist (1 John 2:18). By the way, the Antichrist will do many of the same things that Antiochus Epiphanies did.
Jesus returns to the earth in fury at the end of the great tribulation. He dismantles the New World Order and tosses the Antichrist into the “lake of fire”. The antichrist will be the first resident of the “lake of fire”, along with the “false prophet”.
Just a reminder. The man named “Magog” in Ezekiel 38 & 39 is called the “chief prince” amongst his brothers. So Magog is a prince or secondary ruler! I think that Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is today’s Magog. I think that he could very well also be the Antichrist!
Ezekiel 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
