Antichrist Rising out of Syria


By Steve Magill/Christian Newswire published by Charisma Magazine

Russia's recent reactivation of the "friendship and cooperation treaty" with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has prophecy students considering whether this move will prove to be significant toward ushering in the Antichrist.

[ Personal Note:  Several commentators have proclaimed the beast (as a person – not as an empire) will be an Assyrian, or from Syria.  Peter Goodgame seems to believe the beast, as an antichrist person, will be a manifestation of Nimrod]
Steve Magill, author of the new book Revelation and the Age of Antichrist, says "Russia's revived treaty with Syria is important because the Antichrist will appear out of Syria. Scripture also records Russia as the feet of the Antichrist ordained to mobilize his empire."

[ Personal Note:  To my knowledge, scripture does not Record Russia as the feet of the antichrist (or beast as a person - further research may show that the beast is an empire and not an individual and may not even be a consideration for the so-called antichrist) again the majority of this article is imaginative opinion ]
Magill notes that in Daniel 7 an empire with the national symbol of a bear will be on the world stage concurrently with three other empires, also known by their animal symbol. These empires are identified as a lion with eagle wings (Great Britain and the United States); a bear (Russia); and a leopard (Islam). Never in the history of the world have four empires with these animal symbols appeared on the world stage at the same time.

[ Personal Note:  Russia could be associated with a bear and England with a Lion (as on various heraldry shields) but Islam is not a symbol of Islam to my knowledge.  An internet quote states:  The leopard is not known as the symbol for any nation.  If you examine Islam you will find that it has all the characteristics of the leopard”. ]

Revelation 13:2 describes the role each of these empires have in establishing the Antichrist's empire. Great Britain and the United States are recorded as the Antichrist's mouth/voice to set the agenda and lead the world toward establishing the new global world order. Russia, the bear, is recorded as the feet of the Antichrist to realign and support the Middle-East landscape. Islam, the leopard, is recorded as the body of the Antichrist's empire to which America, Great Britain, and Russia will be attached to make the earth's final empire, the Antichrist empire.

[ Personal Note:  The above paragraph is mostly opinion and not fact. ]
When Antichrist's empire is formed, it will be the fourth, brutal beast of Daniel 7, the composite beast of Revelation 13:2, and the new world order realigning all nations into ten economic/political regions, known as the ten toes of Daniel 2:42, 7:24-25, and the ten horns of Revelation 13:1.
Russia's Syrian aggression is one more confirmation that the last days are ending and earth's last seven years and the age of Antichrist are at the door. It appears the feet of the Antichrist's empire is getting ready to attach itself to Islam, the body of the Antichrist.
