The Last Empire
“His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron. 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.
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 break
them to pieces.”
It was in Babylon that Daniel interpreted
Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the multi-metallic image that represented the times
of the Gentiles’ rule of the world. The image stands for image worship and
Gentile world Empires starting with the head of gold - the Babylonian Empire.
The breast and arms of
silver stood for the Media – Persian Empire, the second world empire. The belly and thighs of brass was the
Greek Empire, the third world empire. The legs of iron was the Roman Empire, the forth world empire. The feet of iron and clay is the revived Roman Empire of the last days. It is the last form
of Roman rule under the Antichrist who will cause the whole world to worship
Four great nations had
empires that ruled the world. The different metals represent world empires-
(Gold-Silver-Brass-Iron). But out of this fourth world empire of iron (Rome) comes the feet of iron and clay mixed.
is partly strong and partly weak. Weak
because the people won’t cleave together. It is a divided nation. This is the last empire of Antichrist.
Antichrist will succeed, for a short time, to put the Roman empire back together in these last days. But he
will be crushed by the smiting stone, the Lord Jesus Christ, at his second
coming at Armageddon.
I BELIEVE THE LAST EMPIRE OF IRON AND CLAY
IS THE AMERICAN EMPIRE. (the big feet) and an alliance of ten
European nations (the ten toes). I believe the U.S. is the Babylon of Revelation and the last world
empire of history, (and our president will be the beast). We have been
gradually building our empire and controlling the world for many years now. But
now we’re moving fast because Russia has collapsed, their soviet empire has
broken apart, their money ran out. We have nobody to stop us. We are moving in
fast to rule and control the world. We are the only superpower on earth. And
the terrorism of the Twin Towers has given us the excuse to take over nations by military
conquest. First we pulverized Afghanistan and now are about to crush
Iraq-Babylon again. We are changing from a republic to an empire. The Pax Americana.- Amen.
Do you see Rome-Italy
shaped exactly like a leg and foot? Oh yes, the Creator of heaven and earth
shaped Rome like a leg and foot to fulfill the
prophecy of later years. Rome became the fourth world empire, ruling
the earth when the Lord Jesus lived. It was the strongest empire of all. Iron to conquer and iron to rule over the conquered. Iron to make war machinery. The Roman Leg-ions (see
leg) left their footprints by these foot-soldiers all over the
world. The Roman Army took to the seas in ships and brought their soldiers to conquer
other nations and to make their empire – (like the U.S. is now doing).
Rome was a republic for hundreds of years
until 27 B.C. when it became an empire. Their chief executives were elected
every year by the senate. In 27 B.C. August Caesar named himself Emperor and
absolute authority rested in him alone. Like Rome we are moving from a republic to an
empire. We are at a turning point in American history and it’s only a matter of
time before there is no free election to choose our chief executive.
The U.S. is also a nation as strong as iron. We
are the feet of the leg of Rome, the revived Roman Empire. The Lake Superior region has most of the iron in the
U.S. Iron to make our war machinery like Rome – (subs, ships, planes, missiles,
guns, etc.). In 1776, when the U.S. was founded, we were the only republic
on earth. We patterned ourselves after the Roman Republic but we forgot that Rome became an empire because of her lust
for power. And now the U.S. is becoming a global empire like Rome.
Since WWII, the U.S. has been engaged in “Perpetual War for
Perpetual Peace.” We have to have an enemy of the month it seems. Each month we
are confronted by a new horrendous enemy of whom we must strike first before he
destroys us. Washington first threatens one nation for harboring terrorists and
then another. Imperial Rome did the same. There was no corner of
the world where Roman interests was not alleged to be in danger or under actual
attack. Their fight was always invested with an aura of legality. Rome was always being attacked by evil
neighbors. To create an empire you must first discover or invent an enemy and
then dominate him. Then other nations become afraid and fall into line or you
buy them off with money.
I just read a report by
the “Federation of American Scientists.” It lists all the unprovoked military
strikes by the U.S. since WWII. Over two hundred acts of
war by the U.S. upon sovereign nations. Since WWII
we’ve struck the first blow. (but then we’re the good
guys – right?) Two hundred recorded military strikes against second and third
world countries and it’s not discussed in our media hardly
at all. All this without a congressional declaration of war as required by our
Constitution because our Congress gave up this power to one man, the president.
It’s not self-defense, its self-offence and it’s an offence against God. If we wantonly kill and it’s not self-defense, then its murder.
If we live by the sword then we’ll die by the sword, as every other empire has.
We even boast that we
are the last great global power on the globe. Certainly we can see the imperial
president as he thumbs his nose at the U.N., telling them if they vote for us fine, and if they don’t we’ll crush Iraq anyway. The American people have no idea
of the extent of their governments’ mischief. We are making an imperial grab
for land and oil in the Persian Gulf. As our nation becomes more and more wicked, we can see its
effects on our government. We are moving from a republic to an empire – The Last Empire – Amen.
And in order to control
the world we must control the oil, and most of the world’s oil is in the Persian Gulf. So we’re about to conquer
Babylon-Iraq in these end days, right where the image was dreamed by
Nebuchadnezzar and his Babylonian Empire. When we conquer Iraq, we’ll be showing the world that we
are the new Babylon of the book of Revelation - because the U.S. will be ruling Babylon. And it will also show that we are in
fact building an empire, the last empire before the Lord Jesus comes- the feet
of the image.
in Manhattan, N.Y. shows us to be the modern-day tower of Babel and the new Babylon of the New Testament. N.Y. is the Empire State and The Empire state building is the
tallest building in N.Y., once again. The only Babylon in the world is Babylon, N.Y. Just 37 miles east
of N.Y. City. And West point is just north of N.Y. City and it stands for our army by which we
control the world. You can’t build an empire without an army, a mighty army.
Bible commentators have
rightly discerned the ten toes of the image in these end days being ten
European nations and the current European Union probably is the forerunner of
this. But they have failed totally to discern the feet and toes. The
final revived Roman
Empire is not
just the toes but the feet and toes. The U.S. is the big feet and the United States
of Europe will be the ten toes creating an alliance that will help U.S. rule the world. But the U.S. will be the leader as we are now and
President of the U.S. will be the president of the European
Union as well. This combined power will stop any enemy from coming against us.
It’s the foot of
Rome-Italy that is kicking the football of Sicily and that foot is U.S. We have the nuclear weapons to destroy
the world. The briefcase that travels on an officers wrist and goes everywhere
with the president of the U.S. is called THE
FOOTBALL It has the codes for the president to push the nuclear button
and burn the whole world. A football is a simple missile and a football pass is
called the “long bomb.” I’m talking about the Ball-istic
missiles in our nuclear arsenal. Are you listening?
Just recently Sec. of
Defense Rumsfeld said that the U.S. might use nuclear weapons against Iraq. See the blackmail weapon we have and
we’re using it. This is called Power Politics.
President Bush is called
a cowboy. He has set a Policy of America as the Global Bounty Hunter like-
“Have Gun Will Travel.” President Bush decides who the evil guys are that we
will hunt down-dead or alive. And, oh yes, our chief cowboy wears cowboy boots-
right back to Rome again shaped like a boot. Perpetual war for peace, peace when
there is no peace.
The legend of “Big Foot”
– said to be a huge hairy beast like a human who is said to inhabit N.W. U.S. and leave giant footprints. Oh, Big
Foot the Beast is coming and he’s the foot of Nebuchadnezzar’s image in
(Dan.2). In (Dan.4) Nebuchadnezzar, Emperor of the Babylonian Empire, was humbled by God into a beast. A man with the
heart of a beast and a type of the Beast, the Antichrist of the Great
Tribulation period – and the Beast is U.S. It is said of the Beast “who can make war with him” (Rev.13)
(Only the Lord Jesus- Amen)
When the Lord Jesus was
born it was during the reign of Rome’s first Emperor, Augustus Caesar.
(Luke 2:1) says – “And it came to pass in
those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.” And the Lord Jesus was
born of the Virgin Mary in Bethlehem where Joseph and Mary went to pay
Now what is the clay in
the feet? That which makes the Empire of the Antichrist weak.
That makes it a divided empire. Iron mixed with miry clay. The people shall
mingle together, but like iron and clay they don’t cleave together. (Dan. 2:43)
says – “They shall mingle themselves with
the seed of men, but they shall not cleave one to another.” It points to
our Great weakness in the U.S. – the black and white problem that has
divided this nation from the beginning and made us weaker. A
segregated church and a segregated nation. The iron in the U.S. is in the far north- (The Lake
Superior area- MN and upper Mich.) and the clay is in the southern U.S.
The blacks and whites
don’t cleave together in love. Instead of the church preaching the gospel to every
creature and fulfilling the Great Commission, we whites refuse to preach to
blacks and have segregated churches. And this heresy also permeates our society
and politics. It broke our country apart in the 1860’s in our Civil War and has
given us riots in our cities. It has kept blacks out of positions of authority
in all aspects of our society and in our army and has greatly weakened us.
And the bottom line is
sex between blacks and whites. The great taboo. To cleave together and two becoming one flesh as husband and wife.
The South had laws against black and white marriages for many years. Most
preachers in the south won’t marry blacks and whites even though both are born
again and this is totally against the scriptures. Because
they look at people on the outside and not the heart. – “For man looketh on
the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the
heart” (1 Sam. 16:7). God cares about a black heart not a black skin. It’s sin not skin – the inward, not the outward. – Amen.
When you travel through the South you can see
miles of red clay and when you travel through the North in the Lake Superior area, you can see the red iron earth.
It looks the same color, but one is strong and the other weak. Our U.S. was not united during the Civil War.
We were a divided nation and we almost broke in two. It was and is our great
And the North sang “The
Battle Hymn of the Republic.” I said republic not empire. ‘Mine eyes have seen
the glory of the coming of the Lord. He is trampling out the vintage where the
grapes of wrath are stored.’
And the Lord Jesus does
exactly that at his second coming at the battle of Armageddon. He comes as the
smiting stone that crushes the last world empire of Antichrist on the iron and
clay feet. (Rev. 19: 11-16) 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: (there’s the smiting stone) 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.”
All off God’s saints will accompany the Lord Jesus as his heavenly
army, a cavalry- Amen. He came the first time as the stone of grace, the
precious corner stone of the church at Calvary and he will come back again as
the smiting stone of wrath as a cavalry. He came the first time during the time
of the first two emperors of Rome to preach the gospel of the kingdom.
It is a spiritual kingdom now for whosoever gets saved. He will come back again
during the time of the revived Roman Empire and set up his literal millennial kingdom on this earth. “The kingdoms of this world are become the
kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ: and he shall reign forever and ever” (Rev.
He comes back as the true
and last world empire. He’s the King of Kings. Christ shall have dominion over
land and sea, and earth’s remotest regions shall his empire be. He will rule
over the true world empire – the entire earth. His enemies will be made his
footstool. And we, his saints, will be little kings and will rule with our
emperor over this earth. A theocracy, ruled by God.
Holiness will cover the earth. Peace and no war. The Pax Christa- Peace with God. The one who gave peace
with God in human hearts will bring peace on earth. Pax
Romana and Pax Americana
won’t give lasting peace- but the emperor the Lord Jesus Christ will,- “In the days of these kings shall the God of
heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed” (Dan. 2:44) And his
kingdom shall stand forever.
Former President Carter’s hometown is Plains, Ga. The name Plains comes from the Plain
of Dura in Babylon where Shadrach, Meshach,
and Abednego refused to worship the golden image set
up by Nebuchadnezzar and were thrown into a furnace of fire- (Dan.3). This is a
type of the Beast who kills all who will not worship his image- (Rev.13).
Certainly God was showing us in 1976 the Last Empire of the Beast- the U.S. and our President.
Do you want to be a king and a priest on this earth ruling and
reigning beneath Emperor Lord Jesus? Then you need to believe the gospel of the
kingdom. You need to be saved from your sins and washed in his precious blood.
You need to go first to Christ’s Calvary before you can come back with Christ’s Cavalry.
If you want to be saved, “call
upon the name of the Lord.” (Jesus)
Repent of you sins - turn away from
your wicked ways.
