Who is he symbolically?

  • He begins as one of the ten horns on the last head of the dragon called “the little horn” in Daniel. In Joel he is not yet a locust, he is only a “caterpillar”. These are his “beginnings”.
  • He becomes the leader of “Gog” in the battle of Gog and Magog.
  • As such he is the “king of the locust invasion”
  • His name is interchangeable with “Agag” who was the king of the Amalekites.
  • He is the last head of the seven heads of the dragon in Revelation when he becomes a global leader.
  • He is the beast in Daniel 4
  • He is the conqueror carrying a bow riding the white horse – the first horse of the apocalypse.
  • As such, He is the first seal in Revelation.
  • He is the visible manifestation of the invisible Satan, the enemy of Jesus.
  • He the man who desecrates the Holy of Holies in the middle of the tribulation, indwelt by Satan, declaring that “he” is “god”.
  • From the Book of Daniel: He is Syrian.
    • 1) The book of Daniel identifies him as one of four horns on the goat representing Alexander the Great. Those four horns are four of Alexander the Great’s generals who, after Alexander’s death, divided his territory among them. The four horns are Macedon (Greece), Turkey, Egypt, and lastly Syria (including Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and all territories up to India)
    • 2) The King of the North and the King of the South are descendants of two of those generals, also described in the book of Daniel. The North is Syria and the South is Egypt. Surprisingly, it is the king of Syria who narrows the four horns down to one: Syria. His name is Antiochus IV called “the mad man” by the Jews. He is a foreshadow of the Antichrist to come because he did everything Jesus said the coming Antichrist would do, he claimed he was god in the holy of holies and sacrificed a non-clean animal on the altar.
      • Matthew 24:15 The Great Tribulation – “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
  • He rules in Jerusalem during the seven year tribulation. He will be chased down and he will be slain when Jesus appears at the Battle of Armageddon to fight on behalf of the Jews.
    • Isaiah 14:25 That I will break the Assyrian (The Antichrist/The Leviathan) in My land (Jerusalem),
      And on My mountains (Jerusalem) tread him (The Antichrist) underfoot.
      Then his yoke shall be removed from them,
      And his burden removed from their (Jewish) shoulders.
    • Isaiah 27:1 Israel Will Be Restored – In that day the Lord with His severe sword, great and strong, Will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent; And He will slay the reptile that is in the sea (of people).
    • Psalm 74:14 You broke the (seven) heads of Leviathan (dragon) in pieces, And gave him as food to the people (Jews) inhabiting the wilderness.
  • Info from the Book of Ezekiel: He is Gog
    • Ezekiel lends credence to Gog being the Antichrist.

      Ezekiel 38:17 Thus says the Lord God: “Are you HE (Gog) of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them? (The Battle of Gog and Magog)

Other verses of note also connect the Antichrist to Gog, the king of the locusts (a devastating army), and Agag, king of the Amalekites.

  • The book Amos 7:He is the king of the Invading, devouring Armies called Locusts.
    • The Greek Septuagint of Amos states that Gog is the king of the Locusts.

      Amos 7:1 Thus has the Lord God shewed me; and, behold, a swarm of locusts coming from the east (Syria); and, behold, one caterpillar, king Gog.
    • The verses below help to determine the timing of Gog’s invasion.
      • Vision of the Locusts
        • Amos 7 Vision of the Locusts –
          1 Thus the Lord God showed me: Behold, He formed locust swarms at the beginning of the late crop (Lit. beginning of the sprouting of); indeed it was the late crop after the king’s mowings.
          Late Crop:
          2 And so it was, when they (the locust swarms) had finished eating the grass of the land, that I said: “O Lord God, forgive, I pray!
  • Book of Joel 1:He leads the armies of the latter days.
    • The Day of the Lord
      Joel 1:4 What the chewing locust left, the swarming locust has eaten;
      What the swarming locust left, the crawling locust has eaten;
      And what the crawling locust left, the consuming locust has eaten.
  • His Locusts (a military army) in Revelation
    • Revelation 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. 3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth.
  • The book of Numbers 24: He is also Amalakite

The name Gog and Agag are interchangeable.

The Greek Septuagint (translated from Hebrew to Greek by the Jews) reads “Gog” instead of “Agag” in Numbers 24:7.

  • Numbers 24:7 There shall come a man out of his seed, and he shall rule over many nations; and the kingdom of Gog shall be exalted, and his kingdom shall be increased.

Note: The meaning of the name Agag is “High”. Jesus’ kingdom will be “higher than high” (higher than Agag’s kingdom) Agag was the king of the Amalakites. Amalek is #6 on the list of those who will come against Israel in Numbers 24.

God told Saul the king to kill ALL the Amalekites. But Saul spared their king until Samuel discovered he wasn’t killed and took it upon himself to slay him. In that interim, Agag was able to have a descendant. From his lineage came Haman…and then the Antichrist.

  • The Amalakites were renowned for their opposition to the Jews. Haman was an Amalkite who wanted to annihilate the Jews.

Like Haman, Antiochus IV, Hitler, and the Muslim Imam; the Antichrist has the intention of making Jerusalem a graveyard of Jews, annihilating every last one.

The Antichrist is continually influenced by Satan. Satan is described as a dragon with seven heads in Revelation. The book of Revelation, from the first page to the last page is about the tribulation when every last remaining Jew comes to believe in their one true Messiah, which is the purpose of this time of tribulation. It is God working with and focusing on the Jews, although the entire world is pulled into what appears to be a global black hole of drama.

The nation Israel is a stumbling block for all the nations of the world.

Who is he pictorially?

  • He is part of an unholy trinity: Satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet
  • He is the visible manifestation of the invisible Satan in whom Satan dwells.
  • He is the shadow of Antiochus IV casting itself into the future and projecting its form on the wall of evil.
  • He is the one who does “monstrous” things. Joel 2:20

Who is he metaphorically?

  • As Haman …So the Antichrist
    • “Let a decree be written that they (the Jews) be destroyed, and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those who do the work”
  • As Antiochous IV …So the Antichrist
    • “I will make Jerusalem a graveyard of Jews”
  • As Hitler …So the Antichrist
    • “The Jews are yours”
  • As the Muslim Imam …So the Antichrist
    • “Eradicate every last Jew from Palestine and the Arab world”
  • As Satan …So the Antichrist
    • ‘I will ascend into heaven,
      I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
      I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
      On the farthest sides of the north;
      I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
      I will be like the Most High.’ Isaiah 14:13-14
    • The Great Tribulation
      “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (in the Holy of Holies)… Mark 13:14

Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Amin al-Husseini meeting with Hitler:

Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Amin al-Husseini’s post war memoir of his meeting with Hitler: “Our fundamental condition for cooperating with Germany was a free hand to eradicate every last Jew from Palestine and the Arab world. I asked Hitler for an explicit undertaking to allow us to solve the Jewish problem in a manner befitting our national and racial aspirations and according to the scientific methods innovated by Germany in the handling of its Jews. The answer I got was: ‘The Jews are yours.’”

The seven year Tribulation: A Time of Trouble Like Never Before:

  • Daniel 12:1 Prophecy of the End Time: “At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book.
  • Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! For that day is great, So that none is like it; And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble (a famine of seven years), But he shall be saved out of it.
  • Amos 8:11 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord God, “That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the Lord.
