I get email all the time from readers telling me who they believe the antichrist maybe. Granted many are way off in their predictions but for some reason or another they feel that person is scary enough to fit the description. Some of the guesses aren’t even political figures but in the order of paper kings and princes in a made for TV special. I guess anything can happen, but don’t count on it.
Just as the kingdom of the antichrist and those before it were real military dynasties (described in Daniel 2), so will this future kingdom be as well. Kingdoms will fear and tremble at the mention of this man and ask “who is able to make war with him (Revelation 13:4)”. This man will be from a kingdom that will be a recognized force in the world at the time of his ascension. There won’t be any secret coups or unknown countries that will spring up from nowhere to become rulers of the world.
Just as the previous four world rulers (Babylon, Persia, Greece and Ancient Rome) were well-documented powers in world history, so will the New Roman Empire be in the future.
If you look around at world headlines, keep your eyes open and study the scriptures, you just might see things happen before your eyes.
