For a few years now, I have been convinced that the little horn of Daniel shall arise from Mosul (near old nineveh), which is where AQI (Al Queda in Iraq) extorts money from businesses, according to the CFR (so, it might be true hoho).
Looks like the beginnings of this beast’s political apparatus are taking shape.
This quote comes from the Companion Bible revised edition, Daniel chapter 8:-
9, And out of the one of them came forth a little horn [the Antichrist, at the time of the end],which grew and became exceeding great, toward the south [Egypt], and toward the east [Babylonia and Persia], and toward the pleasant land [the land of Israel].
23, And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressions have filled up their measures, a king of mighty presence [the antichrist], and skilled in dissimulation, shall stand up. 24, And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall succeed, and do it with effect, and shall destroy the mighty ones and People of the holy ones. 25, And through his policy also he shall cause deceit to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by their prosperity shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes [the Messiah]; but he shall be broken without hand.
