The Eighth And Final Beast Empire Of Satan

The Eighth And Final Beast Empire of Satan is the last empire Satan will use to persecute Israel, the Jewish people and Christians the world over before God Almighty defeats Satan, and the antiMessiah and their armies at Armageddon, and retakes physical possession of the Earth, and evicts Satan and his fallen evil angels out of the Earth’s premises. The identity and composition of this last evil empire of Satan is revealed to us in the Scriptures. It is the feet and ten toes of the image of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream consisting partly of iron and partly of clay. “His legs of Iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay”(Dan.2:33). “And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: for as much as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, for as much as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, Even as iron is not mixed with clay”(Dan.2:33,40-43).

The Revived Roman Empire

We see from here that the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan which is the fifth in the image of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in Daniel 7, shall consist of ten toes made partly of iron and partly of clay. The fourth empire in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream consisted wholly of iron. We have previously identified this Empire as the Roman Empire. The two legs represented the two divisions of the Roman Empire; the Western Roman Empire headquartered in Rome, and the Eastern Roman Empire headquartered in Constantinople. The iron, the ancestry of the Roman Empire is present in the 8th and Final Beast Empire. This ancestry we have identified to be Japhetic through Magog, Meshech and Tuval. This three nation coalition constitutes the power base of the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan. The remaining seven nations, the clayey part shall be identified by Ezekiel and the scroll of revelation.

“And after this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and break in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. 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.”(Dan.7:7,8).

In the vision of Daniel, the fourth nondescript beast, which signal the Roman Empire is the head on which stands the ten horns. It therefore follows the foundation of the 8th and Final Beast Empire is Roman in origin. The ten horns grew out of the fourth beast. The ten horns are the ten kings of the ten nation confederation, the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan. The ten horns of the fourth beast of Daniel’s vision are synonymous with the ten toes of the statue or image of the dream of Nebuchadnezzar. We have already identified three of these as of Japhetic descent through Magog, Meshech and Tuval. As we have pointed out earlier, the remaining seven horns or toes are identified by Ezekiel and John the revelator in the scroll of Revelation.

But we see here that there is another little horn that arises after the ten horns and roots out three of the ten previous horns. This little horn has eyes like the eyes of man and a mouth speaking great things. This little horn is the antiChrist. He shall overthrow the three kings of the three most powerful nations in the ten nation confederation. These three nations shall be the three most powerful nation in the world with the most sophisticated armies and up-to-date with the latest in military technology. To be very candid, the antiMessiah shall replace those three kings with his own puppets. There will aways be ten kings. The Beast-antiChrist is the overall ruler of the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan or the Emperor of the Empire.

What are these great things he shall be speaking about? He shall blaspheme the Most High God and the heaven-dwellers. He shall change the laws, times and seasons and shall wear out the saints of the Most High(Dan.7:25). Daniel reporting the interpretation of his vision by the angel said: “thus he said, the fourth beast shall be the fourth upon the Earth, which shall be diverse from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall arise after them: and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hands until a time and times and the dividing of times.”(Dan.7:23-25). We see here that the little horn is indeed the same Man Of Sin. The time, times and dividing of time is the same three and one-half years, 42 months or 1,260 days allotted to the antiMessiah which corresponds with the second half of the 70th week of Daniel.

The Table Of Nations.

Noah and his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japhet are the survivors of the deluge. They and their descendants repopulated the Earth in the postdeluvian period. Therefore they are the ancestors of the peoples of the Earth today. Japhet the elder had seven sons. They are Gomer, Magog, Medai, Javan, tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. Gomer begat Togarmah. Shem begat Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud and Aram. The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. And Cush begat Nimrod(Gen.10:1-32).

Postdiluvian Forced Migration Of Nations.

After the flood God commanded Noah, his sons and their descendants to disperse all over the Earth. But after 500 years, these men had not migrated, but rather in defiance to God built a tower that reached up to the heavens. This tower was not for the worship of God but for star gazing(astrology) and the consultation of evil angels. “And they said to one another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said. Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole Earth”(Gen.11:3,4). God Almight confounded their language. Because they could no longer communicate one with another, they were scattered abroad upon the face of the Earth. Those who spoke one language, moved together and settled in one location. Thus came into being the various peoples of the Earth and their languages.

Iron Mixed With Clay.

The Image Of Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream

We have shown that the iron originates in the Roman ancestry. It is this same iron depicted in the legs of iron of Nebuchadnezzar’s statue that extends into the toes where the iron is mixed with clay. It is the same iron that represents the strength and leadership of the ten-nation confederation with its iron roots extending back to the Roman Empire. It is the iron grip of Rome that propels the leadership of the 8th and final Beast Empire. The iron differs from the clay in that clay does not mix with iron. These are peoples of differing religions and worldviews who come together for the purpose of accomplishing divine purpose. God has put it in their heart to give their strength and power to the beast until God’s will is fulfilled(Rev.17:13,17). There is homogeneity in the iron, but the clay is a composite of diverse minerals that may bond together but do not mix with one another. These peoples bond together in the seed of men, but will not mix with the iron; even as iron does not combine with pottery: the clay ancestry maintains its own separate distinctiveness.

The iron consists of people of Japhetic descent, and judeo-christian in worldview and outlook. The clay consists of various peoples, the majority of whom are Semitic, others Hamitic, and some even Japhetic. The only one thing uniting these peoples groups is the Islamic religion. Ten ancestral peoples groups, some with Roman Empire connections, others without, will combine with each other for the final campaign against the chosen nation of Israel and the elect of God. These nations will maintain the differing ancestral identities under the absolute iron grip of the leadership that traces its origin to Ancient Rome. So, it is evident that it will be from the iron represented in the legs of iron in Nebuchadnezzar’s statue that the strength and the leadership of the 8th and final beast Empire will arise. The Roman Empire was driven by Japhetic ancestry, so also all the other beast empire nations during the 70 sevens of Daniel, including the 7th beast Empire that reigned during the interlude between the 69th and the 70th seven of Daniel. So, iron represents the Japhetic ancestry or lineage, whilst clay the other peoples groups, the weaker nations that are allied to Rome. Therefore the 8th and final beast empire will be partly strong, made partly of iron, and partly brittle, made of clay.

Tracing the Roman Ancestry.

The Ten Horns

In order to understand who the iron nations will be, we must start with the iron legs of Nebuchadnezzar’s image. At the time the Scroll of Revelation was written, Rome was the reigning Empire. From where did the Roman people originate? The Roman Empire came into existence in the 1st century BC. At that time, the descendants of Kittim, the son of Javan and grandson of Japhet, dominated what is now the Italian peninsula.

Rome was founded as a city state. It later became a nation, and lastly an empire. It was not the descendants of Kittim that dominated the Roman ancestry. Rome became a republic near the end of the 1st century BC. It expanded into an empire, the largest at that time, at the beginning of the 1st century BC. According to Cyril Robinson, it was the inhabitants of the city-state who were considered Romans, not the inhabitants of the Italian peninsula.

In immemorial days volcanoes were both numerous and active along this western coast of Italy; and its plains were for this reason left almost untenanted by the primitive inhabitants(the Kittim) of the peninsula. Of these(people with a) rudimentary culture, very little is known. In historic times their descendants were still to be found in the Ligurian mountains above Genoa and in moorlands of Apulia and Calabria in the southeast. Elsewhere, however, at a very early date they were either absorbed or evicted by invaders(the Roman ancestry) coming from beyond the Alps(who are) the true Italian race. The original home of this verile people appears to have been on the Danube basin or even further north. They were, in fact, a branch of the great Indo-European stock, tribes of which in the process of migration found their way into many lands. From the language they spoke was derived not merely the Italian tongue, but Greek, German, Anglo-Saxon.

The Alps is located partially on the northern boundary of modern Italy, as well as in Austraia and Switzerland. North of the Alps lies the Danude River, in the southern region of modern day Germany. The inhabitants of the Danube River basin, and the region north and south of it are entirely of Germanic ancestry. According to Robinson, the ancestry of the inhabitants of Rome are rightly traceable to the Indo-European nomadic tribes who come from the area in Central Europe which we recognize as Germanic. These peoples are Japhetic in their lineage.

Walter Wallbank and Alastair Taylor also wrote about the early settlers of The Italian peninsula and the founders of Rome:

The Greeks and Romans were offshoots of a common Indo-European stock(Japhetic), and settlement of the Greek and Italian peninsulas followed stages that were broadly parallel. Between 2,000 and 1,000 B.C., when Indo-European peoples invaded the Aegean world, a western wing of this nomadic migration filtered into the Italian Peninsula, which was then inhabited by indigenous Neolithic tribes….One group(of these nomadic Indo-European peoples), the Latins, settled in the lower valley of the Tiber River, a region which became known as the plain of Latium.

…….Modern scholars believe that early in the eighth century B.C. the occupants of the small settlements on the hills in the Tiber valley united and established a common meeting place, the Forum, around which the city of Rome grew up.

It is well established that these tribes of nomadic Indo-European peoples, whom historians refer as Aryans, were of Japhetic descent. These peoples moved westward from the area of the Black Sea and Caspian Sea. They moved on to what became the German-speaking people of Europe, and from there down to the Italian peninsula. What this means is that Rome was founded by northern Japhetic tribes who came down from the areas of Europe north of the Alps and the Danube basin. They travelled from the west coast of the Italian peninsula to the plain of Latium, where the city of Rome was founded. The Germanic areas of Europe and the former Soviet Union north of the Alps are settled by nomadic tribes of Japhetic descent. It is therefore probable that the founders of Rome were descendants of Magog, Meshech, and Tuval, although Magog seems most likely, inasmuch as it was the Magogites who settled in Central Europe from where originated the migration into the Italian peninsula. Although their lineage cannot be traced to any particular son of Japhet, it is certain that people of Japhetic extractions will be part of this 8th and final beast Empire, the iron nations in the toes of iron and clay. After a careful study of the migration of the sons of Japhet after God confounded the languages of the sons of Noah at the Tower Of Babel, the logical candidates for the tribes which moved north from the city of Babylon, over the Caucasus Mountains and west over the region north of the Black Sea into the Danube Valley will be the descendants of Magog, Meshech, and Tuval. It is likely that Magog is the ancestral line, though a combination of the three is possible. It is neither crucial not germane to our study to identify which one of these ancestral lines founded Rome, inasmuch as they are all Aryan descendants of Japhet.

There is a continuity in the Roman Empire represented by the legs of Iron in Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream, and the later ten-nation coalition described as iron mixed with clay. The same continuity also exists in the Aryan-Japhethic ancestry of the Roman Empire and the 8th and final ten-nation confederation, especially the three power base nations whose heads the antiChrist will overthrow. The crucial issue is not so much the location of specific geographic nations as is the ancestry of those nation that compose the 8th and final ten-nation beast empire.

The Identification Of The Three Nation Coalition.

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”(Dan.7:8). “And the ten horns out of the kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three”(Dan.7:24). We can see that the little horn of verse 8 is the same as another king of verse 24. This little horn has eyes like the eyes of a man. Eyes signal intelligence. This king has intellectual prowess. And he has a mouth speaking great things against God and those who dwell in the heavens. He will overthrow three rulers from those ten nations. The little horn is a depiction of the antiChrist. The identification of these three nations is critical and germane to our study. Since Israel is now back in her own land as an independent nation, and are in possession of her Holy City Jerusalem, the unification of those three nations is the only prophetic event that must occur before the signing of the seven-year peace treaty between the many from within Israel and the antiMessiah which marks the terminus-a-quo(starting point) of the 70th seven of Daniel.

“And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief Prince of Meshech and Tuval, and prophesy against him, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief of Meshech and Tuval:”(Ezek.38:1-3). As we have pointed earlier, Gog is the tittle of the ruler of the land of Magog. The ruler of the land of Magog is also the political as well as the spiritual head of Meshech and Tuval. The Hebrew word translated Chief Prince in the KJV is Rosh. In Hebrew Rosh literally means head. But some translations render it as a people which some biblical scholars have associated with Rus which is Russia. But Rosh is not listed in the table of nations on Gen.10. There is no descendant of Noah called by that name, unlike Meshech and Tuval. Some Jewish Talmudic scholars do not take Rosh to be a people, but a title of leadership which is why it does not appear in the table of nations. The Hebrew word Rosh is often rendered head or chief. For example, Num.31:26(heads); 1 Chron.5:7(chief); Neh.6:70,71(heads). Gog is the national leader of Magog. He is also the international leader of Meshech and Tuval, thereby making him the leader of the three-nation coalition. Ezekiel tells us that the antiChrist will come from the line of Magog and will rule over these three nations, Magog, Meshech, and Tuval.

The overthrow of the three rulers of these nations by a man of Magogites descent will be a breaking news when it occurs. This event will identify the three nations when it occurs and also the antiChrist. This ruler who overthrows three kings will probably replace them with his own puppets. The 8th and final Beast Empire will comprise ten nations and ten kings. The antiMessiah will be the overall ruler or emperor of the empire. This is the only remaining major prophetic even that will occur before the antChrist signs the seven-year peace agreement with the many from within Israel, before the 70th seven of Daniel can commence.

Israel will make a seven-year peace agreement with the leader of the three-nation coalition for the sake of national security. “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”(Dan.9:27). Understanding the Japhetic ancestry and extraction of these three power base nations will give the best clue as to why Israel will be anxious to be their ally rather than their enemy.

The Identity Of Magog.

According to Josephus, the great Jewish historian of the 1st century AD, the Magogites are Scythians who moved eastward and westward from the region north of the Black Sea. To this agrees the Jerusalem Talmud, Yerushalmi Megillah 3:9, which identifies Magog as Goths, a group of nomadic tribes who destroyed the Scythians, and made their homes in the Scythian territory. The Talmud further comments: considering that the Goths were a Germanic people, the identification of Magog’s descendants as the Goths is in accord with Targun Yonasan to Genesis 10:2. According to Encylopedia Britannic, the Gothic language was the most certain base of the language spoken by the eastern Germanic tribes, the Visigoths in Europe. It is beyond doubt therefore that the Germanic line as we know it today is descended from Magog. It is certain therefore that Gog, antiChrist, will descend from the Germanic line of Magog, which has a direct link to the ancestry of Rome. Nazi Germany under Adolf Hitler claimed the title Third Reich. Nazi Germany claimed to be a direct extension and heir to the rule of Rome as expressed over the centuries in the Holy Roman Empire(The First Reich), and the empire of Kaiser Bismarck, The second Reich.

The First Reich: The Holy Roman Empire

The Second Reich: The Empire Of Kaiser Bismarck

The Third Reich: Hitler’s Nazi Germany

The Fourth Reich: The 8th Final Beast Empire Of The antiChrist

The identity of the Magogites is clear, but their exact geographical location and boundary is not that clear. Obviously the large majority of Magogites are concentrated in the present day Germany. But large numbers are also found in Eastern and Western Europe. For example, the Austrians are Germanic, and speak the German language. Hitler annexed Austria to Germany in 1938. The Austrians were responsible for the murder of 2 million Jews during the Holocaust. Even within the former Soviet Union, there are large concentrations of people of Germanic extraction. In the past an appeal has been made by these people to have a country of their own in the former Soviet Union, in the Volga River region, south and east of Moscow. There are Germanic people in the Sudetenland in the Cezch Republic, and Silesia in Poland. It is possible that these peoples, could emerge from the former Soviet Union or present Russian Federation, inasmuch as the other two tribes, Meshech and Tubal are found within these boundaries.

The Identity Of Rosh.

There some biblical scholars who maintain that Rosh is a people rather than a title, from which Russia is derived(cf. Henry M. Morris, The Genesis Record, Grand Rapids: Baker, 1976). Mountains of books have been written by the proponents of this view about the Gog and Magog war in which Russia will invade Israel. According to the advocates of this view, this is the only major prophetic event that will occur before the 70th seven of Daniel, the last seven years of the present Earth’s history. But it more likely that Russia is derived from Rus, which has its origin in the 8th or 9th century AD. It is believed to be Scandinavian in derivation. We will probably never know whether Rus is derived from the Hebrew Rosh. All interpreters who identify Rosh as a peoples group, always trace its lineage to Russia, perhaps because of the similarity in pronunciation, and partly because of its association with Meshech and Tubal in Ezekiel 38. Robert van Kampen has suggested that if Magog only describes the ancestry of Gog, and not a reference to one of the three-nation coalition, then Rosh must be considered a specific ancestral group, and should not be translated ” Chief Prince” as rendered by the KJV. But it is clear from the table of nations that Rosh is not a peoples group by the virtue of its conspicuous absence. Therefore the KJV rendition is the correct one.

The Identity Of Meshech And Tubal.

Certain Jewish sources indicate that by the 8th century AD, the descendants of Meshech and Tubal were located in the western portion of the former Soviet Union. Meshech represents Moscovy, a region in the vicinity of modern day Moscow; and Tubal known in the Assyrian monuments as Tibareni, a region in and around the modern Russian city of Tobolsk, which is about a thousand miles(1,600 km) east of Moscow.

The Roman Connection.

Ezekiel 38:1-3 identified the three-nation coalition which had connection with the ancient Roman Empire, as depicted by the legs of iron from which the feet and toes of iron are partially derived. The Japhetic lineage that will dominate their empire will derive wholly or partly from its Roman ancestry as depicted by the iron in the feet and toes of iron and clay. There are some biblical scholars who believe that the antiChrist will come from Italy based on Dan.9:26. It was the Roman General Titus who destroyed the Jewish Temple on Mount Moriah in 70 AD. But it must be noted that the patrician families that founded Rome as city-state in the plain of Latium were Aryan-Japhetic not the native Italians. As we have established earlier, the most likely candidates for the founders of Rome were Magogites, largely because the founders of the city-state of Rome came from the Danube basin, and secondarily because the Danube basin is the area in Central Europe where the Magogites were the primary settlers. We conclude therefore that the Magogites were the founders of the city-state of Rome out of which grew the Roman Empire. It is no coincidence that the German title kaiser is a derivative of the Latin Caesar, as is also the Russian Czar and Iranian Sha.

The Roman Empire dominated the Japhetic world of its time. The two legs of iron represented the western division headquartered in Rome, and the eastern division, also known as Byzantium headquartered in Constantinople. It is reasonably safe to assume that the iron in the toes of iron and clay is, at least, partially Germanic. The iron may be representative of the rugged, nomadic, Japhethic peoples that will be the driving force of the 8th and final Beast Empire; or it may be a broader representation of the Japhetic lineage in the 8th and final Beast Empire of Satan. Our conclusion therefore is that the three heads of the three-nation coalition that the antiChrist will overthrow, will be comprised of the three strong, nomadic peoples of Japhetic descent from the remote north, whose ancestry is traceable to the same people who founded and ruled the Roman Empire. The people are zealously antisemitic. These nations have maintained a consistent pattern followed by all the empires that have dominated Israel during the 70 sevens of Daniel, including the prophetic gap between the 69th and the 70th seven. All of these empires have been led by antisemitic leaders of Aryan-Japhetic descent.

The Identification Of The Seven Secondary Nations.

“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. For God had put it in their hearts to fulfill Hie will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the word of God shall be fulfilled”(Rev.17:12,13,17). The scarlet coloured beast with seven heads and ten horns, on which the woman sitteth is the the Beast-antiChrist(Rev.17:3). The seven heads are the seven beast empires of Satan which he has used to persecute Israel throughout history. “The seven heads are the seven mountains on which the woman sitteth”(Rev.17:9b). The seven mountains are synonymous with the seven heads. “The beast that was and is not, even he is the 8th, and of the seven, and goeth into perdition”(Rev.17:11). The head of the 8th beast empire is one of the seven rulers of the seven previous beast empires of Satan. This man who had lived before and ruled over one of the seven prevous beast empires of Satan is the eighth head, to whom the ten horns of the 8th Beast Empire shall submit an give allegiance. He is a dead man come back to live. “The ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, who have not yet even received a kingdom as yet, but shall receive authority as kings one hour with the beast.”(Rev.17:12). These ten horns representing ten kings are contemporaneous with the beast that was and is not, and yet is. These have one purpose, and shall give their authority and power to the beast. For God had put it in their hearts, to execute His will, by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom, power and authority to the beast that was and is not, until the word of God is fulfilled. By surrendering their nations and giving their allegiance to the Beast-antiChrist, these kings are unwittingly fulfilling God’s purpose whilst at the same time, sealing their own doom. We have already established that anyone who gives allegiance to the antiMessiah by being branded or chipped in his name, that is, being Beast-marked shall be executed when Christ reclaims physical possession of the Earth at the final battle of Armageddon.

We have also proven that the three dominant nations that shall comprise the 8th and Final Beast Empire shall include the same Aryan-Japhethic lines that dominated the Roman Empire. The identity of the seven secondary nations can be determined in additional passages given us in the books of Ezekiel, Daniel and Revelation.

The Identification Of Three Seconary Nations By Daniel and John.

The image of the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar and the Scroll of Revelation tell us the identity of three of the seven secondary nations of the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan. “And thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. 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. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried then away, and no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole Earth. 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 never be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it break in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the Dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.”(Dan.2:31-31,44,45).

We can see from this passage that although, by the time the 8th and Final Beast Empire was set up, four of the five beast empires depicted in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, were historically passé, their life was present in the feet and toes of the statue; for when the stone cut out of the mountain without hand, which is Christ, hit the image at its feet by defeating the Eighth And Final Beast Empire at the Battle Of Armageddon, the whole statue crumbled. So three of the seven secondary nation of the 8th and final beast Empire were Babylon, the head of gold, Medopersia, the arms and breast of silver, and Syrian Greek, the loins of and thighs of bronze. Remember that the Medes, who are the Kurdish people of today will be the first to attack Babylon, the great harlot city before it will be finally destroyed by the ten kings of the 8th and Final Beast Empire.

“Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it. Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children. And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldeans’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there. But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there. And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.”( Isa.13:17-22). It is not likely the Medes will be part of the 8th and final beast empire. The prophet Ezekiel did not mention them in his list of the nations that comprise the 8th and final beast empire(Ezek.38:5,6).

Usually Media is mentioned in tandem with Persia; for they were the primal architects of the Medopersian Empire. But we see that they are omitted in this passage in Ezekiel. But obviously they would be allied with the antiChrist, otherwise they would not have the audacity to attack the commercial capital of the 8th and Final Beast Empire. As we haven seen, Babylon, Persia, Syrian Greek(Javan), shall be incorporated into the 8th and Final Beast Empire alongside the Aryan-Japhetic nations of Magog, Meshech, and Tuval, the three power base coalition. These empires were the third, fourth and fifth best empires. The first and second, Egypt and Assyria, were not mentioned in the statue of the dream of Nebuchadnezzar II because the period covered concerned the time then present, that is, from the reign of Nebuchadnezzar II to the End Of The Ages, the so called the times of the Gentiles. Although seemingly invincible, this multinational empire partly comprising the three power base coalition, Babylon, Persia and Greek Syria shall be annihilated by Christ when His final wrath is poured out upon the nation that know not God at Armageddon.

In Daniel 7, the beasts of Daniel’s vision, the winged lion was Babylon, the four-headed, four-winged leopard was Greece in its four divisions after the death of Alexander the Great; and the nondescript beast represented Rome and the ten horns the 8th and Final Beast Empire. The little horn, before whom three of the original ten horns were rooted out was the antiMessiah, the undisputed and absolute ruler of the Eighth and Final Beast Empire of Satan(Dan.7:1-8). “I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool: his throne was like fiery flame, and His wheels like burning fire… I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time(Dan.7:9-11). We can see here that in the days of the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan, the Council of heaven shall sit, and the little horn shall be arrested and cast into the Burning Flame. The rest of the kings had their dominions taken away from them, but their lives were prolonged for a season and a time. Another translation reads, ” but an extension of life was granted to them for an appointed period of time.” This may mean that they were not immediately cast into the lake of fire as the antiMessiah and the false prophet were, but imprisoned in Hell or the shaft of the abyss where the kings of the Earth were during the Millennium, from which they shall be finally cast into the Lake of fire and brimstone(Isa.14:9). Biblical scholars have differing views as to what is meant by an extension of life was granted them for a season and time or an appointed period of time. A fuller examination of this statement and the various views held by different scholars is beyond the scope of this work.

These nations were also identified by John the revelator in the Scroll of Revelation. “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the Dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” The leopard here stands for The Greek-Syrian Empire as in Daniel 7 which we have just examined. The bear stands for Medopersia, and the lion for Babylon. So the descendants of these kingdoms, shall align themselves with the antiChrist to form the 8th and Final Beast Empire as confirmed by John the revelator. The beast that rose out of the sea with seven heads and ten horns is the antiMessiah who received authority from the Dragon, Satan(Rev.13:1,3).

In summary, we can see the 8th and Final Beast Empire will comprise the descendants of the Babylonian Empire which is modern day Iraq, the descendants of Medopersian Empire which is largely modern day Iran. The Medes who are the Kurdish people of today, are found in eastern Syria, western Iraq, northern Iran and southern Turkey. There pockets of them in Armenia and Georgia. The Medes, through the PKK, the Kurdish Workers Party are fighting for independent Kurdistan. The 8th and Final Beast Empire also comprises the Greek-Syrian Empire which existed in the general vicinity of Syria after the Greek Empire ruled over by Alexander the Great broke up into four divisions; and also the original three-nation coalition, the three power base nation of Aryan-Japhetic ancestry that drove The Roman Empire. Like their ancestors, the descendants of these four beast empires will align themselves with Satan in the formation of the 8th and Final Beast Empire which Christ shall annihilate at Armageddon.

The Identification Of The Four Secondary Nations By Ezekiel.

“Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee”(Ezek. 38:5,6). Here the prophet Ezekiel reveals to us the identity of the four secondary nations alongside the three power base coalition. They include Persia. We can see that the Medes are omitted here. Nevertheless, they shall be the first to attack Babylon before the ten kings destroy it. It is obvious they will be allied to antiMessiah. The Hebrew word translated Ethiopia is Cush. In the table of nations in Genesis 10, Cush is a grandson of Noah through Ham. Today in modern Israel, Cush simply means black. When I visited Israel, I was hosted by my beloved brother Meno Kalisher and his wife Anat. one evening, I went for a stroll in the street, Eliezer Kashani street in East Talpiot, Jerusalem, where my host resided then. I came across some little Israeli boys and girls in the street. They called out Cushi. That means black. In biblical times, Cush referred to the black people inhabiting the general area we call Sudan today. It is written, Tirhakah came out of the land of Ethiopia(2 King.19:9; Isa.37:9). There is no king of the area we call Ethiopia today called Tirhakah. Tirhakah probably reigned over the general area called Sudan today. In Acts 8:27, a eunuch in charge of the treasury of Queen Candace was mentioned. She was described as the Queen of Ethiopia. Queen Candice never ruled over the land we call Ethiopia today. She was Queen Candace of Mero, an ancient kingdom in the general area we call Sudan in modern day. So, it is not proper for us to include modern day Ethiopia which was formerly called Abyssinia as part of the ten nation coalition. Since independence, the modern state of Ethiopia has always had a fairly good relations with Israel, except during the communist era in that nation.

Put(Phut) corresponds to modern day Libya. Gomer, a son of Japhet is believed to have settled in modern Ukraine. Beth-Togamah, the house of Togarmah was a grandson of Japhet is believed to correspond to present Armenia, eastern portion of Turkey, and a small portion of northwestern Iraq. We probably will not be able to fully identify who these peoples are until after the formation of the ten nation confederation. In summary, we can see that The prophet Ezekiel identified the four secondary nations of the ten nation confederation called the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan. They are Libya, Sudan, [Gomer and Togarmah]{Turkey}.

Seven Significant Facts About The Ten Nations Of The 8Th And Final Beast Empire Of Satan.

When examined in the light of the Scriptures, certain significant facts emerge regarding the consortium of nations that form the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan.

(1) Japhetic ancestry.

One thing that is obvious about this composite of nations is Japhetic dominance. Of paramount importance is the fact that all the seven sons and one grandson of Japhet are represented in the consortium of nations that constitute the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan. Whether the iron in the feet and toes of iron and clay represent the nomadic lines of Magog, Meshech and Tuval that was the driving force behind the Roman Empire, or all the Aryan-Japhetic lines that will dominate the Final Beast Empire may be difficulty to determine until the empire is fully established.

(2) Religion.

Another significant fact is that most of the Japhetic nations that will be represented in the composition of the 8th and Final Beast Empire will be Christian, Roman Catholic, or orthodox in their religious faith. The Semitic and Hamitic nations are Islamic in their religious faith. Perhaps this partly accounts for the immiscibility of the iron and the clay.

(3) Politics.

Most of the Aryan-Japhetic nation that comprise the 8th and final Beast Empire of Satan are democratic in their political worldview. On the other hand, the Semitic and Hamitic nations are either autocratic monarchies or autocratic secularists. They are absolutist in their worldview.

(4) All Three Sons Of Noah Are Represented.

All the three sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japhet are represented in the composition of the consortium of nations that form the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan. Libya and Sudan are of Hamitic extractions. Babylon is Semitic and the rest are Japhetic.

(5) Antisemitism.

Although both Jews and Arabs are Semitic peoples, descendants of Shem. However antisemitism is a term used exclusively to define hatred of Jewish people. Virulent Antisemitism is a common denominator in these nations. This is the main reason why they will join with the antiChrist, a dead man come back to life, who will lead the last empire Satan will use to persecute Israel and the Jewish people as well as Christians. When Satan is cast down to the Earth in the middle of the 70th seven, he shall be enraged, and shall go to make war with the woman, and the remnant of her seed that keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ(Rev.12:17).

(6) Persecution Of Israel Within The 70 Sevens Of Daniel.

It is of note that all the Beast Empire nations that Satan had used to persecute Israel during the entire 69 sevens of Daniel, are of Japhetic ancestry. The same holds true for Nazi Germany, the seventh Beast Empire that Satan used to persecute Israel in Diaspora, when it had no access to the Promised Land of Israel and her Holy City Jerusalem. It therefore follows that the 8th and Final Beast Empire will be no exception, inasmuch as it will be dominated by the Aryan-Japhetic lines of Magog, Meshech and Tuval, the three power base coalition representative of the iron in the feet of iron and ten toes of iron and clay in the image of the dream of Nebuchadnezzar. This 8th and Final Beast Empire will persecute Israel, the Jewish people, and Christians during the second half of the 70th seven of Daniel, the last seven years of the times of the Gentiles.

(7) Exemption Of Egypt And Assyria.

Of the seven heads of the Dragon-Beast, two are exempted from the composition of the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan. These are Egypt and Assyria, the two earliest empires of history that persecuted Israel. The reason adduced for this exemption that there will be a remnant of the children of Israel given refuge by God in the land of Ham, and in Assyria(Is.27:12,13). Therefore descendants of these two beast empires shall not be part of the consortium of ten nations that will persecute Israel in the last days.

(8) Geographical Locations.

(a) The Aryan-Japhetic nations, Magog, Meshech, and Tuval are located in the north of Israel. These nations are in Central and Eastern Europe, and perhaps, parts of Asia. God promised Israel through the prophet Joel that He will deliver Israel from an evil coalition from the north. “Then will the LORD be jealous for His land, and pity His people. But I will remove far from you the northern army, and I will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the East Sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill favour shall come up, because he had done great things.”(Joel 2:18,20). In the same vein, the prophet Ezekiel spoke of this coalition from the north of Israel: “And thou shall come from thy place in the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army.”(Ezek. 38:15).

(b) The remaining seven secondary nations firm a complete circle around the small nation of Israel. In comparison to these nations, Israel is like a little island in the midst of a great sea. “Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. Let the heathen be awakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.”(Joel 3:11,12). These nations that sorround Israel shall come against her in the second half of the 70th seven. Under the command of the antiMessiah and the armies of his three power base nations already in the land of Israel because of the covenant of apostasy and Jerusalem Campaign shall seek to wipe out Israel, towards the end of the Great Tribulation, shortly before God interrupts the Great Tribulation with cosmic and celestial disturbances. “In that day, God shall make the governors of Judah like an Hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.”(Zech.12:6). God shall devour these sorrounding nations when they invade Israel in the Jehoshaphat Campaign.

(9) Disintegration Of The Soviet Union.

Meshech, Tubal, Gomer and Togarmah were in the former Soviet Union. There were prophecies that the Soviet Union would collapse, not only to free the Jews in the evil Empire, but also in order to bring about the future formation of the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan. The writer was a witness at the meeting where these prophecies were given by a brother known to the writer. These prophecies have been fulfilled. The Soviet Union is no more, and the majority of soviet Jewry have been allowed to emigrate. However, we await the future formation of the 8th and Final Beast Empire of Satan, as we approach the commencement of the 70th seven of Daniel, the last seven years of the present Age.

Summary

As in Daniel’s day, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea after which four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from the other(Dan.7:2,3); today, the sea of humanity is roiling, at the end of which shall emerge these ten peoples groups that shall constitute the 8th and Final Beast Empire. To summarize, we shall lists these ten peoples groups with their possible modern names. As we pointed out earlier, the descendants of the three sons of Noah are represented in the ten nation confederation. They are as follows: Magog(Germany, they include all peoples of Germanic descent, the Franks, the Anglus and the Saxons from Lower Saxony in Bavaria, from which came the English people); Meshech(Muscovy, Russia); Tuval(Tobolsk, Russia); Javan(Greece), both in Greece proper and Greek Syria, there are troubles right now; Gomer(Ukraine, Turkey); Togarmah(Turkey, Armenia); all these are of Japhetic ancestry; Arpachshad(Babylon, Iraq), Tiras(Persia, Iran); Babylon and Persia are of Semitic descent; Cush(Sudan); Put(Phut, Libya). Cush and Put are of Hamitic extraction. Remember that the Medes of old who were part of the Medopersian Empire(Medai-Tiras), are not listed in the ten nation confederation of the 8th and Final Beast Empire. They are the Kurdish people of today. They are in the troubled region of the World. Right now, they are combating ISIS. Though not included in the ten nation confederation, they shall be most probably allied to it.

Some people wonder what shall become of America, the greatest nation in the history of humanity so far. America as it is today is a composite of the descends of all the three sons of Noah just as the 8th and Final Beast Empire would be, but the founders of the nation are Europeans of mainly Germanic ancestry; the Spaniards, the English, the French, the Italians, the Germans and Nordic people. So America is part of Europe. In both World Wars, America fought on the side of the allies. Today, America is the leading nation in NATO. We therefore conclude that America shall be either part of the ten nation confederation of the 8th and Final Beast Empire, or be allied to it. They shall be part of the iron, that is, those with Roman roots, and judeochristian values, as well as the clay, those with Islamic values.

I believe the saints will go through the Great Tribulation before being evacuated from the Earth in the rapture.
