The Bible is the book which makes us wise for salvation (2 Timothy 3:15.) God revealed the identity of the antichrist through the prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation.
One day, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a dream, but he forgot it. So the king summoned the magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and astrologers to tell him what he had dreamed last night. However, who can know the dreams of other people? They said to King Nebuchadnezzar, “O, king, tell your servants the dream, and we will interpret it.” At this, the king was so angry and furious that he ordered the execution of all the wise men of Babylon including Daniel and his friends.
The mystery of the dream was revealed by God to Daniel in a vision. Daniel said to the king, “God has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come.” In other words, the dream was a prophecy that would happen in days to come. In a dream, King Nebuchadnezzar saw a large stature-and enormous, dazzling statue. The head of the statue was made of pure gold. And the chest and arms of the statue were made of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay.
Daniel also presented the interpretation of the dream to the king, “You [King Nebuchadnezzar] are that head of gold. After you, another kingdom will rise, inferior to yours…”
God showed what kingdoms would appear after the kingdom of Babylon through the dream of the king. The gold part of the statue represents Babylon. And its silver represents Media and Persia, the kingdom which appeared after Babylon. The bronze part of the statue represents Greece which appeared after Media and Persia. And its iron represents Rome which was divided into ten kingdoms like 10 toes of the statues (Daniel 2:41.)
After hearing his forgotten dream and its interpretation from Daniel, King Nebuchadnezzar fell prostrate before Daniel and paid him honor.
In Daniel Chapter 7, Daniel himself had a dream about four beasts which came up out of the sea.
Daniel said: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven… Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea. The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle… And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear… After that, … another beast, one that looked like a leopard… After that… there before me was a fourth beast–terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth… and it had ten horns. While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it…” (Daniel 7:2-8)
The four beasts are four kingdoms that would rise from the earth (Daniel 7:17.) In fact, the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar and the dream of Daniel were not different. In Daniel Chapter 2, God showed what kingdoms would appear after Babylon by likening them to four metals. And in Daniel Chapter 7, He showed what kingdoms would appear through four beasts. The lion in Chapter 7 represents Babylon. Actually, many lion statues are found in relics of Babylon today. The bear represents Media & Persia (like the silver of Chapter 2), the leopard Greek (like the bronze), and the fourth beast Rome (like the iron.) Then, why were the dreams of King Nebuchadnezzar and Daniel written in the Bible? God revealed the identity of the antichrist through their dreams.
The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom [Rome]. After them another king will arise… he will subdue three kings. He will speak against the Most High [God] and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time. (Daniel 7:24-25)
According to this verse, Rome (represented by the fourth beast) was divided into 10 kingdoms (Anglo-Saxons, Franks, Alemanni, Lombards, Burgundians, Suevi, Visigoths, Heruli, Vandals and Ostrogoths.)
In addition, according to the prophecy that “he [the antichrist church] would speak against God and oppress God’s saints and try to change the laws of God,” the antichrist church killed 40-50 million people during the Dark Ages, and changed the laws of God: the Sabbath was changed to Sunday service, and the Passover of the New Covenant was abolished in 325 AD. It even changed the Ten Commandments.
Without the laws of God, we cannot be saved. For our salvation, Christ Ahnsahnghong came to the earth and restored all truth which had disappeared during the Dark Ages, according to the prophecies of the Bible.
From the movie above, you can understand that God planned the history of this world to reveal the identity of the antichrist church. God warned, “Come out of her [Babylon], my people.” Then, where should we go to?
Raise the signal to go to Zion! Flee for safety without delay! (Jeremiah 4:6)
We must go to Zion where God’s feasts are celebrated (Isaiah 33:20). Sunday service, Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving Day are mere man-made feasts. God’s feasts include the Sabbath day and the Passover of the New Covenant. Please knock on the door of the World Mission Society Church of God to keep the feasts of God.
