Satan’s Super Empire
“His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. And the fourth Kingdom shall be strong as iron. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. And in the days of these kings shall The God of Heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms and it shall stand forever.”
(Dan. 2: 33-34-40-44)
“And the Devil, taking him up into a high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the Devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me: and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine” (Luke 4:5-7)
From ages past Satan has coveted God’s Throne. He has an incurable passion and because of his pride he wants to be God. Scripture reveals that he once led an angelic revolt against God in an attempt to seize the Eternal Kingdom of God.- But it failed- This was the first original sin. (Isaiah 14:12-15) shows us this original sin. Lucifer, Satan’s angelic name before his fall, along with one third of the angels in Heaven, tried to usurp the Throne of God. Lucifer said, “I will ascend into Heaven, I will exalt my Throne above the stars of God: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds: I will be like the most High.”
With sin available after Satan’s fall, God created a race of human beings with free will and God created this world for them to live in. Satan deceived Eve and through her Adam, into sinning by breaking God’s only law, and eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Praise the Lord for the Lord Jesus who died and shed his precious blood on another tree, the cross, whereby we can have remission of our sins.
But because of sin Satan became the God of this world. When Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, it was a genuine offer. He offered to Jesus Christ all the power and glory of being the Emperor of the whole world- if Jesus would worship him. But Praise the Lord, the Lord Jesus rejected him and became the Savior of the world.
Satan is going to make the same offer to Antichrist- and he will accept it. He will be emperor over the world and because he worships Satan it will be a kingdom of evil. Satan rolls with the punches, never backing away from his determination to overthrow the Kingdom of God. Even now he is finishing working on his scheme for rallying the world behind his all-out assault against the Lord Jesus when he returns to set up his literal kingdom on earth. Satan will bring upon the world scene a man whom he will establish as the Emperor of the World. This man of course will be Antichrist, also known as The Beast. “And power was given him over all kindreds and tongues and nations.” (Rev.13:7) To prepare for this man, the spirit of Antichrist has been working in the affairs of men and when things are just right, his man will appear on the Political Stage. When wickedness is ripe, the Wicked One will come. Satan’s Super Empire will come on the world’s scene soon.
The Devil imitates the Kingdom of God on the earth. Just before the Lord comes back as King of Kings to set up his empire of righteousness on earth, The Devil sets up his kingdom on earth with his Antichrist as the emperor ruling over the whole world of wickedness- (for a short time). This is Satan’s Super Empire.
People on earth will have a final choice to be for Christ or against him. To worship Antichrist and his image or worship Christ. To worship the Devil’s man, Antichrist, or worship God’s man, Jesus Christ. To believe the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and get saved or believe Antichrist’s word and Kingdom of Satan and be lost forever in Hell. People who are truly saved have the Kingdom of God within them in the person of the Holy Spirit during this day of grace. They are the children of God destined to reign on the earth as Kings and Priests when King Jesus comes back as Emperor of the world to set up his literal kingdom on this earth.
(Rev.11:15) says, “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ and he shall reign forever and ever.” (Rev.5:10) says, “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” (We believed the gospel of the Kingdom when it was preached). The Kingdom of God lasts forever. Satan’s Super Empire will be defeated by the Lord Jesus and the Lord Jesus will be the final world emperor forever. “And then shall they see the son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”(Mt.24:30)
The children of the Devil are deceived by the Devil into believing what he has to say about his kingdom. How his empire is good for them. It will give them peace and prosperity and allow them to live in sin to their hearts desire. This kingdom is a wicked empire of sinful, unsaved, worldly people. They are the kingdoms of this world that become the kingdoms of the Lord Jesus at his second coming.
Antichrist’s final act as emperor will be to summon the armies of the earth and surround Israel to battle against the Lord’s appearing and touchdown on the Mt. of Olives. Satan gathers his armies together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon-(Rev.16:13-16). The Devil hopes to achieve on earth what was denied him in heaven- the Kingdom of God on earth. This is Satan’s master plan. To bring into power his emperor of the world and stop God’s son from being emperor over this world.
The political ripeness of the world is easy to see for a born again person. We can watch it develop in the headlines. Activity within the old Roman Empire will be like a signpost pinpointing Satan’s man. We’ll be able to watch his rise to prominence and it may be starting to happen now.
Now the prophet Daniel was an expert on empires. In (Dan. Chapter 2) the prophet describes all the world empires scheduled to rule over the earth until the time of Jesus’ return. The empires were pictured as an image which King Nebuchadnezzar saw in a dream that Daniel interpreted through the Holy Spirit. It was a multi-metallic image. The head was made of gold and represented Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonian Empire (Babylon is modern day Iraq). The breast and arms were of silver and symbolized the Media-Persian Empire that conquered Babylon. The belly and thighs of brass depicted the third world empire - Greece. The fourth world empire, the mightiest of them all, was pictured by legs of iron. This was the Roman Empire and its iron legs showed their awesome strength and the powerful spread of her conquests and lengthy span of its empire of about a thousand years. Iron for war machinery. Strong as iron.
But the feet and toes were a mixture of iron and clay, partly strong and partly weak. This is Satan’s Super Empire with the greatest superpower ever seen on planet earth. This is the empire of Antichrist and Satan will give him power like the world has never seen before. This is the revived Roman Empire of the end days that will be crushed by King Jesus - the smiting stone- at his second coming to set up his empire that lasts forever.
As you study history, you can see how Spain, England, France, Germany, Belgium, Portugal, Netherlands, and Italy are merely chunks of the old Roman Empire. Thus the old Roman Empire was not wiped out completely. The feet and toes would become a new union in these end days. In this manner, the iron empire of Rome was to continue until Jesus returned.
Now we have European Union in these end days with a common money, the Euro. As we see the ten toes beginning to come alive to fulfill God’s prophecy. There are more than ten nations in the E.U. right now but when they join up with Antichrist they will tally up to ten. With the European Union a fact we can soon expect Antichrist to ascend politically to become supreme ruler of the ten toe nations. It is biblically proper to refer to the revived Roman Empire as Antichrist’s kingdom, the last empire before Jesus comes. The last image worshipped will be the image of the beast.
And out of these European nations came a colony that became the U.S.A. Jamestown, Va. and Plymouth, Mass. were colonies planted by England when the British Empire ruled over part of the earth. But these colonists threw off the imperial yoke of Britain and defeated them in our war of independence, so that we could be a free republic. The U.S. was a colony of the British Empire from 1607 to 1776 – 169 years.
We detested kings and emperors so we set up the free Republic of the U.S.A. where our rulers are elected by the people. This is the exact opposite of an empire and one man rule. But now we’re rich and powerful and the world’s only superpower and we are most proud. We are turning from a republic to an empire. We are at a turning point in American history. This unprovoked war with Iraq is showing this. We are the Aggressors-not in self-defense but in self-offense. “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” (Prov.16:18)
The U.S. was formed and created by these European nations that were a part of the old Roman Empire. We are an extension of them. We were established as a colony of them. Our language is English because England brought us here as colonists of them. We were their territory. Now we are the only superpower of the world, and rich and powerful. (I BELIEVE SATAN’S SUPER EMPIRE OF IRON AND CLAY FEET AND TOES IS THE UNITED STATES EMPIRE). We are the big feet and an alliance of ten European nations, out of whom we were birthed, are the toes and will help us rule the world. This combined power will stop any enemy from coming against us. In fact NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) already binds us together in military alliance. Any attack by one member of NATO is considered an attack against all. NATO was founded in 1949. Twelve nations were members. Canada and the U.S. and ten European nations. The supreme allied commander of NATO has always been an American for fifty-four years. Are you listening? He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
The U.S. and the European Union are the feet and toes of iron and clay. And the President of the U.S. will one day soon be the President of the E.U. as well. When that happens you will know he is Antichrist. The U.S. is finding out right now that we need these European nations as some of them are going against us in the U.N. in our bid to conquer Iraq. Especially France and Germany. NATO headquarters is in Paris, France. The NATO headquarters is shaped like a giant A.- For Atlantic. The Romans named the Atlantic Ocean after The Atlas Mountains. And it was over this North Atlantic Ocean that the Mayflower came bringing the pilgrims over to colonize U.S. The feet and the toes are bound together by a common heritage, just stepping across the North Atlantic. The U.S. is a part of the Roman Empire as a colony of England.
Soon we will be a full-fledged empire. When that happens there will be no free elections of our president or representatives. We will no longer be a republic, Our international policy is Imperial-style like the Roman Empire. It’s scope is worldwide and breathtaking. There were large parts of the world that Rome couldn’t reach but the Bush imperialism knows no limits. This is Satan’s Superpower Empire, reaching to every corner of the globe.
President Bush forgets that all empires fall but he thinks the U.S. is different. All empires do. No empire can be a republic. It’s the exact opposite. An emperor is a dictator and not freely elected. An empire is not a government of the people, by the people, for the people.- Amen
But this last U.S.A. empire, will be crushed in battle by Emperor Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus comes back as a man of war- the smiting stone of Daniel chapter two. “For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle: and the cities shall be taken and the houses rifled and the women ravished: and half of the city shall go forth into captivity and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the Lord go forth and fight against those nations as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon
the Mount of Olives, And the Lord shall be king over all of earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.”(Zech.14:2-4,9) And hear what (Rev.19) says- “And I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called the Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”
This is a true holy war. Jesus fights a just war in order to have righteousness fill the earth. “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” (Jer.23:5,6).
“Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle” (Ps.24:8). “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” (Rev.17:14). “For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever- Amen” (Mt.6:13). And you don’t elect him, he elects you. God’s elect will rule this earth in righteousness as little kings beneath our Emperor Lord Jesus Christ. God’s Super Empire with his Son as emperor is destined to rule this earth forever.
The world empire of the Lord Jesus Christ will come soon. “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” (Rev.22:12) Be a part of Christ’ Empire. You can have eternal life and rule and reign with him forever. Don’t turn him down.
Are you saved from your sins and born again by the Holy Spirit? Do you want to be a king and a priest on this earth ruling and reigning beneath Emperor Jesus Christ? Then you need to believe the gospel of the kingdom. You need to be cleansed from all your sins and washed in his precious blood. Time is running out in this day of grace. The Rapture trumpet is soon to blow and all the saints of God will be translated and taken up to Heaven and come back with him as his mighty army.
If you want to be saved, “Call upon the name of the Lord.” (Jesus)
First- Repent of your sins- turn away from
your wicked ways.
Second- Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ in
Third- Confess with your mouth the Lord
Jesus to others.
If this is done in truth, you will now be a new creature in Christ. Born again and a child of God.
