100 million saints were slaughtered by the antichrist power come in full, fulfilling the true antichrist king, the beast king of Rome, The Papacy.

All the Emperors of Rome combined never could never achieve the depths of blasphemy and evil of the beast king Papacy.

I will simply show you how The prophecy Daniel received from God telling of The FOURTH AND LAST BEAST, DESCRIBED THE rise TO POWER of the spirit of antichrist in the ROMAN EMPIRE.

1In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions ….

7After 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 brake 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. 8I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

THE TEN HORNS ARE TEN KINGS THAT ARISE FROM THE FOURTH BEAST
WHICH IS ROME

24And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise:

THE LITTLE HORN THAT CAME UP BETWEEN THEM AND ROSE TO POWER

This little horn had eyes like human eyes and a mouth that was boasting arrogantly.
like human eyes ;

His eyes were large, but his sight was somewhat dim.

THREE OF THE HORNS WERE UPROOTED BEFORE HIM

Domitian played a significant role in the wars of succession, fighting as a general in the battles which led to the overthrow of Galba, Otho and Vitellius.
Domitian did help uproot the three horns.
The uprooting of the three led to Domitian eventually taking the throne of Rome. Three of the first horns were uprooted before him.

11: THE LITTLE HORN DANIEL SAW WAGING WAR ON THE SAINTS;
CHANGING LAWS AND TIMES; AND SPEAKING PROUD WORDS AND BLASPHEMING GOD

21I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
http://biblehub.com/kjv/daniel/7.htm

First widespread official Universal persecution of christians by law was under Domitian:

“The destruction of any of the line of David”

“That no Christian, once brought before the tribunal, should be exempted from punishment without renouncing his religion.”

“when any Christians were brought before the magistrates, a test oath was proposed, when, if they refused to take it, death was pronounced against them; and if they confessed themselves Christians, the sentence was the same. ”

Christians were also given an extra tax under his rule.

Changed times and seasons

Changed the roman calendar to name himself in it

renaming the month of September to Germanicus to commemorate his supposed military victories, and renaming October to Domitianus was a constant reminder to the rest of Rome that the eternal city was not a veiled Republic but truly was an empire at the whims of a single man.

Changed laws:

first time in Rome’s history so he decided who was appointed to senate

Domitian also angered the Senate by his self appointment as perpetual censor. With that power he had complete privilege and authority to alter the Senate roles as he saw fit. He used that power to appoint several (up to 24) eastern new-men who as non Italians were clearly not welcome additions by their Senatorial brothers.

Domitian was the first emperor to have himself officially titled in Rome as “God the Lord.” He insisted that other people hail his greatness with acclamations like “Lord of the earth,” “Invincible,” “Glory,” “Holy,” and “Thou Alone.”

Domitian
TITVS FLAVIVS CAESAR DOMITIANVS AVGVSTVS
September 14, 81 AD – September 18, 96 AD
ruled in St Johns Day and murdered him

SO WE SEE THE RISE OF THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST BEING SHOWN AS ASCENDING IN THE LITTLE HORN WHO WAS THE ONE RULING IN JOHN’S DAY.

Emperor Domitian, the self-proclaimed “Lord and God” and ruthless dictator, reigned from AD 81 to 96. st John was in exile of the Island of Patmos due to Emperor Domitian’s persecution. while there, John received the visions from Jesus that make up the words of the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

St John takes up where The Prophet Daniel left off.
Concerning that Fourth Beast ( ROME) and its future as the little Horn (strength) of Antichrist growing and coming power in the world.

And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is,
http://biblehub.com/kjv/revelation/17.htm

One is;
this was the Emperor Domitian; the little horn.

and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
http://biblehub.com/revelation/17-10.htm

St John was given the prophecy of the book of the revelation of Jesus Christ, which expands on this Fourth Beast and This little horn, that is depicted as being full of the antichrist Spirit and so persecuting the saints’ blasphemously opposed to God will on earth and killing his people.

And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

The Eighth comes after ALL the seven
Yet is Of Them.

25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

THE PROPHECY DANIEL CONCERNING ROME; WAS MORE CONCERNED WITH THE FOURTH BEAST AND THE POWER THAT RISES FROM IT
THE PROPHECY ST JOHN WAS GIVEN CONCERNING ROME ; THE PROPHECY OF THE BEAST WITH IT’S SEVEN HEADS , WAS CONCERNED WITH IDENTIFYING THE BEAST KING;

1: By showing one king of the seven ruled in the time john lived.

2: by showing all the seven heads had names of blasphemy
ALL HAD THE TITLE ONLY JESUS IS ALLOWED TO HAVE;
PONTIFF MAXIMUS.

3: by showing that the 8th king IS UNIQUE ( because it alone is named as the beast king) AND SO WAS unique yet IS of the seven kings.

Daniel tells us the persecuting power of antichrist of the little horn Will be destroyed but only when the kingdom comes in full at the return of jesus christ.

26But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. 27And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
http://biblehub.com/kjv/daniel/7.htm

And as history shows us, with the rise of the beast king Came untold persecution on a scale never seen under the Roman Emperors

100 million saints were slaughtered by the antichrist power come in full filling the true antichrist king the beast king of Rome, The Papacy.

All the Emperors of Rome combined never could never achieve the depths of blasphemy and evil of the beast king Papacy.

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

—————————————————————

NO ONE MAN RULED FOR 1260 YEARS, NOR DID ONE MAN RULE FOR 42 MONTHS

And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space

DOMITIAN IS THE EMPEROR THAT IS, OR WAS IN THE TIME JOHN RECEIVED THE PROPHECY.
THE ANGEL SAYS TO JOHN …AND ONE IS

So we see that Emperor Domitian was a literal fulfilment of the Little Horn Prophecy, In that he was literally the 11 king.
Yet he was only a type of antichrist, as the full rule of the little horn was to be for a time, times and half a time, which using a biblical example we know means 1 year , two years and half a year, or three and a half years, which is 42 months and also 1260 days.

So although Emperor Domitian was the literal 11 king of Rome, and so the little horn, the little horn was to rule for 1260 prophetic days of years, which means it was to rule for 1260 years. This is the one part of the prophecy than neither Domitian nor any one man could fulfil.

Yet it was fulfilled in the form of the 8th king described by St John who came after Domitian and after Nerva. The one who was the 8 king yet was one of the seven.

And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space

That beast was the 8th , yet of the seven , of the seven being most shown in Domitian’s antichrist evil persecution of the early church that st john, who wrote the book of revelation, was a fellow member of and sharer in the sufferings of.

11And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
http://biblehub.com/revelation/17-10.htm

As no one man could fulfil the prophecy of the little Horn
Literally, for no man can live for 1260 years, we have to understand that this little horn was showing the spirit of antichrist and how it would infect the world to rise in great power in the rulers of the Roman Emperor.
That the Prophecy of Daniel which describes the little horn is a double prophecy in that is factually points to 11 Emperor of Rome Domitian, who fulfilled every one of the ascribed atrocities of the horn, but one. God, by presenting this prophecy half fulfilled in Domitian, is showing us that the prophecy is really talking about the spirit of antichrist, and how it affects this world and especially his church throughout the ages to come.

A whole new set of kings ruled over Rome in a very different way, and they ruled supreme for 1260 years to the day from 538 AD when Emperor Justinian gave them legal authority in Roman Law, to 1798 AD when by the command of Napoleon they were legally removed forever, making Italy a republic for the first time since 28 BC. The popes of Rome are that Beast King.
