Antichrist – the Last Caesar
“His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay” – (Dan.2:33).
Antichrist will be the last Caesar, the last world emperor of the reformed, extended Empire of Rome, the feet of iron and clay, of Nebuchadnezzar’s emperor image dream. Rome was the empire that succeeded Greece, and it was typified by legs of iron, and so Italy (Rome) was created by God shaped like a ‘leg’ to show you this truth exactly. The Lord Jesus was born during the reign of Augustus Caesar, the first emperor of Rome that was ruling Israel (Lk.2:1), and He was crucified under the reign of Tiberias Caesar. Antichrist will be the last Caesar ruling when Jesus comes back the second time and Christ destroys him at the great battle of Armageddon – (Rev.19:11-21). The Lord Jesus will return as the “smiting stone” – (Dan.2:45), the true and everlasting emperor and King of Kings and Lord of Lords, that will crush the feet of the iron and clay empire of Antichrist. And Christ will reign over the earth forever in justice and righteousness and peace, “…the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign forever and ever” – (Rev.11:15).
It was in Babylon that emperor Nebuchadnezzar had his emperor image dream, and it is the American Empire, with the most powerful military in history, capable of destroying the whole world in one hour with H-bombs, that has just conquered Babylon-Iraq. Our military is now controlled by our president, which is against our constitution, and he rules over Iraq, showing the fulfillment of (Dan.2). The U.S. has conquered Babylon as the empires of Media-Persia, Greece and Rome also did.
Like Rome, the U.S. is about to lose her republic, and become a full-fledged empire ruled by Antichrist-Caesar, the president of the U.S. and president of the world. ‘Czar’ is the Russian word for ‘Caesar’ and President Obama has already appointed 32 ‘Czars’ to rule over our government, totally against our constitution. They were hired by Obama and accountable only to him and immune to congressional oversight and senate confirmation. Obama is circumventing the nomination process altogether with executive orders. He has created a two-tiered government, fronted by cabinet secretaries able to withstand public scrutiny, and then managed behind the scenes by shadow ‘czars’ with broad powers beyond congressional reach. There are 32 little czars (caesars) hired by and accountable to President Obama, who is the big Czar or Caesar. I believe Obama is the Antichrist – the last Caesar who will rule over the earth and force emperor worship to him and cause all the people on earth to receive the mark of the Beast – 666 in their forehead or right hand, under penalty of death – (Rev.13:15-18).
In 49 B.C., Julius Caesar violated Roman law by bringing his army across the Rubicon River in northern Italy, and plunged the country into civil war as he tried to become emperor. Some senators banded together and killed Caesar to try and prevent losing the republic, but it didn’t work. Octavian emerged as the most powerful general with dictatorial powers to end Rome’s civil war. In 27 B.C. the Roman Senate passed most of power on to him, giving him the name Augustus Caesar. As the first emperor he reigned for 41 years, from 27 B.C. to A.D.14. (when the Lord Jesus was born in Bethlehem). Within a few decades, the Roman senate had grown to over 1000 members, while being reduced in power to little more than a club of old aristocratic and military families. Rome had lost their democratic republic and had become an empire with total power given to their emperor.
Great and gross sins and wickedness has now caused the democratic republic of the U.S. to start coming apart, and it’s looking like another civil war. And President Obama could declare martial law and assume dictatorial powers and we will lose our freedoms. We will have crossed our Rubicon and we will lose our republic like Rome did and become an empire with an imperial president. The most controversial declaration of martial law was by President Lincoln during the Civil War and led to the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. There have been nine federal declaration of martial law since WWII, five times to counter resistance to the Southern states to federal desegregation of blacks and the other four times was in response to requests by state governors to quell black rioting in the cities. We have lost our civility and our uncivilized behavior will lead to another civil war.
Because of our wickedness God will give us a wicked ruler to rule over U.S., the Antichrist – the last Caesar. “…the most High ruleth in the kingdoms of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men” – (Dan.4:17). Like Emperor Nebuchadnezzar, who God gave the heart of a beast, our President-beast is coming soon having the heart of the most cruel, vicious human Beast in history.
There is a great division today in the U.S., not between North and South, and free states and slave states, but between conservatives and liberals and the children of God and the children of the Devil. And this will be manifest when all the children of God refuse the mark of the Beast -666, and great persecution comes upon them. “But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the spirit, even so it is now” – (Gal.4:29).
True Christians will only worship Christ, not Antichrist, and will be martyred for their faith in Christ, like the early Church who refused to worship Caesar. Nero Caesar was the fifth emperor of Rome (A.D. 54-68). He was known for his cruelty and persecution of Christians and murdered many Christians, possibly even Paul. Nero was a type of Antichrist, the American-Caesar soon to come.
Are you saved and born again? If not, repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith, and you will receive forgiveness of sins, and be saved from hell and become a new born again creature in Christ having eternal life. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – (Rom.6:23). Choose Christ now or soon you will choose Antichrist and it will be made manifest to the universe by the mark of the beast in your flesh.
