Five Essentials,
Getting It Right!

We’ve waited eight years to teach this important topic!

The vital teaching you’ll hear in the upcoming class pushes back on many of the most popular prophecy themes today. It’s an urgent call to stop listening to the wrong people about what to anticipate for the coming government of Antichrist.

A false message is being preached these days and unfortunately, that’s the only message being heard.

But what does the Bible really say about the makeup of Antichrist’s empire? Pull up a seat and listen closely as you ponder these issues!

1. Satan’s Kingdom

One of the major themes of Daniel and Revelation is how Satan has attempted to use seven successive, anti-Semitic empires to annihilate the chosen people in his attempt to overturn the plans of God.

What we find is that the empire-model Satan designed for this purpose was never a global empire. It was a kingdom that was large, but not worldwide. The strategy was for his kingdoms to dominate a geographical region big enough to control the Middle East and all the land of Israel, but not the whole earth.

The pattern of using regional empires, not global empires, will continue with the empire of Antichrist.

2. Hyperbolic Language

We learn in Daniel that global-like descriptions are used (hyperbole) to describe the size and extent of Satan’s empires. This tricky style language makes these Satanic empires appear to be world-wide empires when they are only regional empires in size.

The pattern of over-stating the size of Satan’s empires in Daniel continues in Revelation for the empire of Antichrist whose domain, like the previous empires, is limited, not worldwide.

3. Revived Empire

The popular notion that Antichrist and his coming empire will rise from Europe, in the form of a revived Roman Empire, is misleading and unfortunate as it has led millions of prophecy students away from Daniel and Revelation’s geographical path of a coming Middle Eastern Empire.

The result is a lack of clarity about what drives the evil nature of the coming empire and what exactly it will look like and a complete disregard for the Islamic nature of Antichrist’s empire which is like forcing a square peg in a round hole.

Only an understanding of the Islamic link to end-time prophecy will bring consistency to interpreting Daniel and Revelation. Without that connection, it’s pure guesswork which is why we see so much confusion on this crucial topic.

4. Globalism

Contrary to what most Bible prophecy books, podcasters and teachers predict, the world is trending away from Globalism, not towards it.

5. COVID Conspiracy

A culture of conspiracy among prophecy teachers and books in contemporary America has mistakenly connected the COVID-19 nightmare as the “first-stage” in a supposed “Global Reset” toward building a coming one-world government . This notion is inaccurate and stems from a misidentification of Antichrist’s Islamic Empire, and assuming it to be a typical, western-style empire.
