Is the Final Revived Roman Empire Erroneous Teaching?


The megalomaniac ambition of the British-Israel movement is that of a Revived British Empire.
However, this fact has been camouflaged by the deliberate misinterpretation of prophetic
to advance the notion that a Revived Roman Empire is the Antichrist system. Perhaps
Christians ought to reconsider the popular doctrines of the modern prophecy teachers, and
Discernment ministries such as Antipas, which teach the final Beast system as a Revived Roman
Empire. This error is built upon a faulty exposition of the four empires represented in
Nebuchadnezzar's image in Daniel 2 and the four beasts of Daniel 7, which are construed as
references to the same world empires. A closer look at Daniel 2, 7 and Revelation 13
demonstrates otherwise.

Daniel 2:32-42 describes the Babylonian, Persian, Greek and Roman empires. Daniel 2:38 states that the head of gold of Nebuchadnezzar's image was the existing Babylonian Empire. "O
king...Thou art this head of gold."

In Daniel 7, all of the world empires portrayed by symbolic beasts are future empires - from
Daniel's perspective. According to verse 17: "These great beasts, which are four, are four
kings, which shall arise out of the earth."

Whereas Daniel 2 identifies one existing (the Babylonian) and three future empires, Daniel 7:
3-6 must refer to four future world empires:

"And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse from one another. The first was like a LION, and had EAGLE'S wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made to stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a BEAR, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it,
Arise, devour much flesh. After this I beheld, and lo another, like a LEOPARD, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it."

Since the beasts of Daniel 7 necessarily refer to four future world empires, a plausible
interpretation has been proposed with reference to the present century. Nazi Germany was
known for its Panzer (Panther or Leopard) divisions in World War II, and the symbol of
Communist Russia is the Bear which has "devoured much flesh." The Royal Arms of England
displays the Unicorn and Rampant Lion, which is "made to stand upon the feet as a man." This
emblem of the union of Scotland and England is also the symbol of the British-Israel Movement.
The Eagle whose wings were plucked in Daniel 7:4 is an obvious reference to the United States, which government from its inception was the vehicle through which the English Rosicrucians planned to establish a New World Order. Thus, the Masonic axiom "Ordo ab Chao" (order out of chaos) will most likely be the fulfillment in Daniel 7:7:

"After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and break in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it; and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns."

A reasonable interpretation of the symbolic beasts or world empires of Daniel 7 places them
in the period immediately preceding "the fourth kingdom upon the earth, which shall be diverse
from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in
pieces." (v.23)

The beasts of Daniel 7 are also found as the composite beast of Revelation 13:1,2 which John
saw rising out of the sea.

"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a BEAST RISE UP OUT OF THE SEA, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
"And the beast which I saw was like unto a LEOPARD, and his feet were as the feet of a BEAR, and his mouth as the mouth of a LION: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat and great authority."

Since the beasts of Revelation 13:2 are identical to Daniel 7, future kingdoms are again symbolically represented. And like Daniel 7, Revelation 13 describes in symbols the British-Israel movement as the BEAST THAT RISES UP OUT OF THE SEA.

Please recall from The Rosicrucian Connection that the Bistea Neptunis or "beast of the sea" -- which is believed to be "ever incarnate in the dynasty of ancient kings" and whose symbol was a fish -- identifies the mystical Merovingian Fisher-Kings, who blasphemously claim to be of the
bloodline of Jesus Christ. According Bloodline of the Holy Grail by Laurence Gardiner, the
Merovingian dynasty derives its name from the 5th century King Merovee of France, a descendant of the mystical Fisher-Kings, who was reportedly sired by: ". . . the mysterious sea beast -- the Bistea Neptunis -- as symbolically defined in the Merovingian ancestry. The relevant sea- lord was King Pallas, a god of old Arcadia...

The immortal sea-lord was said to be 'ever- incarnate in a dynasty of ancient kings' whose symbol was a fish - as was the traditional symbol of Jesus." (Bloodline of the Holy Grail, pp. 166, 175) Modern prophecy teachers have prevented the identification of the beast kingdom as British-Israel by erroneously correlating the empires of Daniel 7 with those in Daniel 2. The misinterpretation of Daniel 7 has been a primary factor in perpetuating a general ignorance of the British-Israel conspiracy, and has insured that its direction of world affairs behind the scenes will continue largely unnoticed.

In the place of the proper interpretation of these prophecies, the masses have been led to
believe that a Revived Roman Empire controlled by the Roman Church, will be the final
Antichrist system. Having established this deception in the Church and orchestrating a
counterfeit fulfillment of Bible prophecy, the stage has been set for the false messiah of the
Merovingian dynasty to vanquish the Pope and his Roman religious system (portrayed as the
Dragon of Rev. 12), after which glorious triumph this Antichrist will be crowned upon the
throne of the Temple of Jerusalem as "the Christ."
