Dedicated To Professor Sir Anthony Buzzard
As we have stated before, we are not in the Time of the End, and we can state this without reservation:
For the King of Babylon, Assyria, the North is not ruling the World as of yet.
The Iron Legs of Daniels dream are NOT representative of Rome, but of a yet to come Middle Eastern Empire ruled out of Babylon (Modern Day Iraq) and it will be an Empire didvided between Assyria and Egypt.
The 10 Toes are the 10 Kings that immediately surround Israel (Genesis 10, Psalms 83:6-8, Daniel 7:24-25 and Revelation 17:12-13). These 10 Middle Eastern Kings will Rule with the King of Babylon for the Final Hour.
This will be the 4th and Final Empire before Gods Kingdom comes, and it’s out of this Middle Eastern Empire that the 10 Horns (Middle Eastern Kings) will come, and ultimately the Antichrist (aka the King of Babylon, Assyria, the North) will come who is the 11th of these 10 Kings
We are still under the rule of Greece
The current paradigm is Lysimachus and Kassander, the Future Paradign will be between Ptolomey in the South (Egypt) and Seleucus in the North (Assyria).
The wars of Iron Legs of Daniels dream are not only future, but will be between King of the North/Babylon/Assyria (Selucus) and the King of the South/Egypt (Ptolemy). There will be a series of 8 conflicts between them whereby Israel acts as buffer State between the King of the North/Babylon/Assyria (Selucus) and the King of the South/Egypt (Ptolemy).
Israel still has not possessed the Gates of its enemies.
The 4th and Final Kingdom: The Iron Legs of Daniels Dream
According to Daniel, before all of this happens, Greece (the West) must collapse first, and even before that collapse comes, Greece (the West) must go to war with the Ram of the East (Modern Day Iran.We see this coming on the horizon now as we speak.
This war is mentioned in Daniel 8:4-7 whereby Greece (the West) is seen to be rising up from the whole world into which Alexander’s Generals had went with the Grecian Empire. The Ram (Modern day Iran) will strike towards the North, South and West. This war will be fought out on the Plains of Susa on the River Ulai in Iran (Daniel 8:2).
This war is mentioned in Jeremiah 49:36-39, whereby the “four winds” (compare Daniel 7:2) will come upon Elam (Persia/Modern Day Iran). Elam (Persia/Modern Day Iran) will be shattered as God (Yahweh) the Almighty brings calamity upon it, and a sword will be sent until it is consumed.
Daniel 8:7 tells us that the Ram Elam (Persia/Modern Day Iran) will be hurled to the ground and won’t be able to get back up again.
Greece (the West) will be successful for a little while only (Daniel 8:8) until Greece (the West) finally collapses into 4 (Daniel 8:8, 11:2-4) and from that collapse, one of the four will rise to crush the other three (Daniel 7:7 compare 7:11-12).
Babylon in Bible Prophecy
by Dr Andy Woods
This will be the rise of the 4th Beast/Empire of the Iron Legs of Daniels dream and it’s out of this MiddleEastern Empire that the 10 Horns (Middle Eastern Kings) will come, and ultimately the Assyrian Antichrist (aka the King of Babylon, Assyria, the North) will come who is the 11th of these 10 Middle Eastern Kings (Daniel 7:24-25, 11:5-45).
The Assyrian Antichrist/King of the North
Sir Anthony Buzzard
The Assyrian Antichrist is an Individual that will respect no God, not even the God of his Jewish Fathers (Daniel 11:37, compare Genesis 28:13, Exodus 3:6, 15, 2 Chronicles 17:4, 19:6, 33:12, Matthew 22:32, Mark 12:26 and Luke 20:37).
The Ongoing Reconstruction of Babylon (in Modern Day Iraq)
This Empire will be the last one before Gods (Yahweh’s) Kingdom comes, and it will last for 70 Years only before it faces everlasting destruction and Israel that is still in exile returns to the land (Jeremiah 25:12-13 and 29:10-14).
During the rule of the last World Empire as depicted by the Iron Legs of Daniels Dream, there will be a series of wars/conflicts (8 of them) between the Kings of the North (Assyria) and the South (Egypt) whereby Israel acts as a buffer state between the two, and will be at the mercy of these two (Lamentations 5:1-22).
After Babylon’s destruction (Daniel 7:11), the 3 Kingdoms that were trodden under foot, their rulerships will be taken from them, but they will be granted life as they are absorbed into God’s Kingdom (Daniel 7:12).
