We all want to know who the Anti-Christ will be, or I must say who he “is,” because he is supposed to have been already born, and must be a fully grown adult by now, to be able to appear on the scene in near future.
One thing for sure, and needs to be clearly mentioned first, is … President Barack Obama is not the biblical Anti-Christ. He cannot be … Whoever teaches and advocates it … he/she is a false teacher. The Last Week of Daniel 9:27 has not even begun yet, and he does not meet the biblical qualification to be the Anti-Christ at all. You can learn more about these things in the following articles and a video:
But, in this article, I am sharing the revelation I received not too long ago, which tells us the origin of the Anti-Christ. Yes … the mystery of the origin of this man of sin, and the son of perdition, has been hidden in the Bible, just as all the other mysteries. Now, our Father has revealed it to me to share with you. So, I will show you the “purely” biblical evidence and proof that the true Anti-Christ, who will mesmerize and shake the world with his evil presence, and ultimately destroy Jerusalem before he himself will be destroyed, is a descendant of the Israelites, a brother of us.

Is He a Jew?
This section is a very brief discussion on this question, “Is the Anti-Christ a Jewish man?” It has been a popular question and a “rumor.” I felt a need to “clarify” some issues, so that the readers can have more sorted out facts to use in their study. There is too much of speculation going around. But, this is not meant to be a full discussion.
First of all, this article will not “name” the Anti-Christ, but will show you, in the Bible, the following:
|The Anti-Christ of the Bible will be a son of Jacob,
the son of Isaac, and the son of Abraham;
and he is from the Tribe of Dan.
Some of you may be surprised, and some of the others might have heard about it somewhere. I have personally had heard about it before I studied this subject. You might have also heard or read some teaching that the Anti-Christ would be from the Merovingian Dynasty bloodline, and their whole blood line is the Tribe of Dan, therefore; he is a Jew.
There are two major problems with this theory:
1. Lack of Biblical Evidence
None of the publications I have read, or videos I have watched, did not address any reasonable biblical evidence to back it up. There might be someone who has done a good job, but I personally have not seen it. I need to see what the Bible says about it.
And, Merovingian Dynasty is not in the Bible, as far as I can tell, so there is no way at this point to compare or confirm the bloodline with biblical facts. There might be a grain of truth in their claims about the Merovingian bloodline, but I have no expertise in the topic. I am a Bible student, and we the faithful Bible students must find the truth in the Bible … or it is not the TRUTH.
2. Who are “the Jews?”
Another problem is the confusion of the term, “the Jew.” Most of the resources I have read or seen assumed that he will be from “the Jews” of the modern-day, again, assuming that they are descendants of Israelites … NO. The modern ethnic Jews, for the large part, have descended from the Khazars, and some of them occupy the current Zionist State of Israel. The Zionist Jews want us to think that they are sons of Jacob, and sons of Abraham, claiming the “birth right” to the land of Israel. Some of them might be … but, most of the modern Jews are not the sons of Abraham, therefore; not the sons of Jacob either. As I will clearly show you that the Anti-Christ must be from the Tribe of Dan, according to the Scripture, then, he must be a seed of Jacob … and the Khazars are not. (I have written an extensive article on this topic, “Yeshua is Not a Jew”, so I refer you to it for more details.)
When I say the Biblical Anti-Christ is from The Tribe of Dan, he MUST be a descendant of true Israelites. If one does not have the DNA of Jacob in them, he cannot be called a son of Dan, nor a son of Jacob.
Also, the term, “the Jews,” in the New Testament means “Judeans,” mainly referring to the rulers of those days, such as Pharisees and Sadducees, seed of serpent (Mat 3:7; 12:34; 23:33). And, they were from the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin, and some Levites, of the Southern Kingdom, who had returned from the Babylonian exile, beginning ca. 538 BC (Ezra; Nehemiah) .. correct? So, “the New Testament Jews” certainly do not include the Tribe of Dan. Besides … the Ten Tribes of the Northern Kingdom, the House of Israel, had been long gone since 722 BC when they were taken by the Assyrians (1Ki 17:6; 1Ch 5:26), then were scattered all over the world. Clearly, Dan was not part of the Judeans either.
Let me rephrase … When someone says, “Anti-Christ is a Jew,” we must ask how this person defines the term “Jew.” He or she may automatically mean “a Jew” as “an Israelite,” but that is absolutely incorrect. Only people who can be definitively called Jews among the Israelites are the leaders of the Judeans in the New Testament. As a matter of fact, the term, “the Jew,” was not in the original New Testament. There are descendants of this group, “the New Testament Jews,” in the world. Probably, may of the Sephardic Jews belong to this category, and they might have been mixed with the Khazarian Jews. But, they are mostly Kabbalah/Judaism practicing Jews, which are clear sign of their identity as seed of serpent. And, to sum it up, the modern day definition of, “the Jews” also means the group of people who practice Judaism, and for the most part, they are of the serpent line. (Note: As I mention in every article of this kind, I do not mean that the entire Jewish population is Kabbalah practicing Jews and belonging to the Illuminati cabal. But, the driving force and the power of the Illuminati consists of the Khazarian Jews, and they use Kabbalah/Judaism to unite and control the rest of their people.)
Therefore, we can safely say these:
- Anti-Christ is not a pure Kahzarian Jew.
- Anti-Christ is not a descendant of the New Testament Jews, who are mainly Judahites.
So, we cannot casually call him, “a Jew,” because it is incorrect.
To confirm all these, let us look at the biblical genealogy with some visual aids next.
This may be confusing to some of you … but, please read the article I referenced above and make sure you understand that most of the current Jews are neither Hebrew (descendants of Eber, the son of Shem according to Gen 10:21), nor the sons of Jacob, nor the sons of Abraham, as they claim, but are the sons of Togarmah, a son of Japheth, who is the youngest son of Noah, after Shem and Ham (Gen 5:32; 7:13; genealogy starting at Gen 10:1).
Genesis 10:2-3 NKJV
(2) The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. (3) The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.
Below please find a diagram for the relevant part of the genealogy. You can see clearly that the Tribe of Dan and the modern Jews are from different bloodlines, and the Jews are NOT a Semite people.
Here is the simplified genealogy:
Originally pagan Khazars converted to Judaism ca. 740 AD en masse, and literally the whole nation became Judaic. And, the Judaism, as the Olivet Journal readers know, is a Kabbalah practicing false religion. It is the same as the false religion that the strayed Israelites practiced; and YHVH their God abhorred it. That was the very reason for which both Northern and Southern Kingdoms were exiled. (More detailed discussion on this is found in the article, “Yeshua is Not a Jew” with lots of references, and much information on Kabbalah itself is presented in “What is Kabbalah.”)
And, when you see the following map with the locations of the peoples mentioned above, it is even more apparent that the Khazarian Jews were closely related to Togarmah, and went up northward to Russia, Poland, and Germany after the Khazarian Empire was resolved and the people were dispersed ca. 1016 AD.
Noticed that sons of Japheth include “Ashkenaz?” Some maps include the whole area of northern Europe through Russia and Germany as Ashkenaz, and those were the exact areas where the Khazarian Jews migrated to after the resolution of the empire, thus the Ashkenazi Jews (includes but not limited to modern-day Russian, Polish, German Jews). The name itself refers mainly to the current Germany area, but, it is an interesting fact that they chose to call themselves with that name.
Nevertheless, the biblical Anti-Christ is not a Jew, as by the modern definition of the term “the Jew”…. but he is a descendant of Jacob, and it is clearly indicated in the Bible, which I will show you below.
But, here is a twist … One important factor we need to consider, which we cannot humanly confirm at this point, is a possibility that they have cross bred at some point, and that is very possible and may be probable, as both are serpent bloodlines. They are a team under the name of their father, Satan, united in Kabbalah/Freemasonry/Judaism. However, I must make it clear that this is still at the level of my personal speculation, although it was formed based on the biblical plot where the Harlot Babylon seems to be Kabbalah, and it is the religion of the seed of serpent, from which will rise the man of sin.
There is one interesting biblical fact, which may support this cross breeding possibility. That is that you see those names of the line of Japheth appearing in Ezekiel 38, i.e.: Gomer, Magog, Tubal, Meshech. It does not mean that the Anti-Christ is only from the line of Japheth, but those are mentioned in Ezekiel 38 as geographical locations, and as well as key words. “Gog, of the land of Magog” (Ex 38:2) is also a prophetic key word for the Anti-Christ, the seed of the serpent. Those names may be the demonic beings, the principalities, that rule the spiritual realm in particular areas (such as “prince of Persia” in Dan 10:20). However, in light of the truth that he is from the Tribe of Dan, the appearance of these names in Ezekiel 38 at least suggests that there is some kind of relations between the Anti-Christ and the line of Japheth.
An interesting thought, that is … Nonetheless, our father is more than capable of keeping the line of the Anti-Christ separate if He wills …. so I will continue to look for a hint and confirmation in parables, where most of the mysteries are revealed. A possible future project …
Lastly, in relation to this subject, there is also “a hint” in the Scripture that the Edomite might be mixed in his line. Esau had two Hittite wives, so their offspring were naturally seed of serpent. It will be briefly touched upon later, but not too much in details in this article. We will focus on the Tribe of Dan.
The truth is that what has happened in the past 2700 years, since the exile of the House of Israel, is just not feasible to determine. And, the reality is that there is simply not enough reliable documents and studies, as I have learned even in my short research. And, it is mainly because they have been suppressed and hidden by the Illuminati related powers, understandably, and what is out there is most likely to be their versions of the history. Satan and his sons still control the world.
Well … but, the most important thing for us, the people of YHVH, is that we do not need to know who exactly will be the one by name, or his exact bloodline. Our Father does not require or expect of us to know that. All He expects of us is to have a good base of the biblical knowledge, especially the prophecies, and if you know the biblical prophecies, you WILL KNOW who it is when the person of the Anti-Christ appears. Also, the fact that the Father is revealing more truth about the man of sin tells us this:
He is preparing us for the time of his appearance, which is just around the corner, … and when he appears, we will have more confirmation source to identify him! What a blessing!
This project suddenly came up, and He wants me to publish it. So let us receive.
And, for the sake of this discussion, let us clearly define the “Tribe of Dan” as the original tribe before the exile, sons of Jacob, sons of Abraham.
The Key Word
Olivet Journal readers know that I read the Bible as Parables with encoded key words, which are the keys to unlock the mysteries in the spiritual realm. If you are not familiar with it, please read the Parables Decoded series. This revelation from our Father has greatly helped me to receive the messages and mysteries of YHVH hidden in the Bible.
So, what are the key words, or his “titles” or “names,” for the Anti-Christ?
There are many titles that refer to him, for example, in the New Testament, “the man of sin” (2Th 2:3 in KJV and NKJV), “the man of lawlessness” (2The 2:3 in NASB and NIV), “son of perdition” (Jn 17:12; 2 The 2:3), “666” (Rev 13:18), “the beast” (throughout the Bible), and more. It is true that it is easier to identify them in the New Testament than in the Old Testament.
In the Old Testament, the most famous key word for the Anti-Christ is “the little horn” in Daniel 7:8 and 8:9.
(9) And out of one of them came a little horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land. (10) And it grew up to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and some of the stars to the ground, and trampled them. (11) He even exalted himself as high as the Prince of the host; and by him the daily sacrifices were taken away, and the place of His sanctuary was cast down.
Also, as “types” or “foreshadows” of the Anti-Christ, whom our Father used to judge His people were the Assyrians, for the Northern Kingdom, and the Babylonians, for the Southern Kingdom. Therefore, in such accounts, the king of the nations whom our Father sent to carry out His judgment was the key word for the Anti-Christ who is to come. There is a lot to study about these key words, and they are very important to pay attention to, and essential for us to know for deciphering the prophecies.
But … in this article, we are not going into these key words, and instead of the well known titles, we will look at, and follow, a rather unusual key word to identify the Biblical Anti-Christ and track the connection throughout the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. It is not a title or name of the Anti-Christ or his shadows, but seemingly unrelated word.
And, this key word, we are going to examine in this article, will tell us that the Anti-Christ will come from one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, and it is the Tribe of Dan.
And, this key word is … “heel.”
This is an excellent example of our Father using a key word as a “marker” to connect the same theme throughout the Bible. When we study the passages connected by this type of key words, a spiritual story will unfold and a mystery will be unlocked. Another good example is the usage of a key word as “a marker for the timing,” as we studied in the video on the Revelation Timeline, which helped us to identify the same timing and event to connect, and ultimately led us to draw the timeline of the Seal, Trumpet, and Bowl signs.
This key word, “heel,” is unusual because it is not a title or does not describe a person, but is a word that is used as a “marker” or a “hint.” But, I am beginning to realize that such key words are not uncommon in the Bible. Perhaps, the key word, “666,” may fall into this category also, as I have found many hints related to the Anti-Christ using the number “6” in sets of three in various places. They are not usually in a form of “666” exactly, but often are disguised in different forms, such as “600” three times scattered in one chapter, “6” three times in one account, “6” in different units three times, and perhaps more. One example of this is included in the Revelation Timeline video in the section of the mini-prophecies of Revelation Chapter 6. The key word, “666,” was hidden as Revelation Chapter 6, a set of 6 prophecies, under Seal 6 = “6-6-6.” We will look at another example of this later in this article as well.
Our Father used this type of connector words to hide many mysteries and truths. We just need to ask Him to reveal to us and look for them, and when you start seeing these key words popping up at you out of the pages, your Bible study goes up a few notches higher into the spiritual realm … and of course, gets to be so much more exciting.
This is also a good opportunity our Father is giving us to learn how we should read the Bible as parables, tracking the key words. So, we will do just that, tracking down the key word “heel” and how it will connect the scriptures and reveal a mystery of the identity of the Anti-Christ.
You will be amazed …
Bruising His heel
Let us follow the thought process of mine; following the steps in the way I came to learn this truth, instead of going from Genesis to Revelation systematically. This way, the reader may relate to it better, because a revelation usually does not come “systematically.”
First, the most famous “heel,” which most of us probably remember is this:
(15) And I will put enmity Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”
As we studied in the Parable of Adam and Eve article, this is an announcement of the judgment on the serpent and the woman for the offense they committed in the Garden of Eden …, in the “Parable” that is. So, the “you” in the last sentence, “And you shall bruise His heel,” is the serpent.
Word on False Teaching
The most popular teaching and commentary on this has been that this refers to the event on Mount Calvary where the Messiah would be crucified on the hill of Golgotha, which supposedly means the head of Goliath. The legend says that David brought Goliath’s head after he had slain the giant, and buried it in Golgotha. So, when Yeshua our Messiah was crucified, He bruised the head of a type of Anti-Christ … a nice scenario, and there may be something to it … But, as usual, the story does not connect with the rest of the Bible, and is prophetically a dead end. And, how does it explain the “you shall bruise His heel” part? Where in the Bible does it say that the Messiah’s heel was bruised?
As to the head of Goliath, we find …
1 Samuel 17:54, 57
(54) And David took the head of the Philistine and brought it to Jerusalem, but he put his armor in his tent. … (57) Then, as David returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, Abner took him and brought him before Saul with the head of the Philistine in his hand.
This is all there is to it in the Bible, and the rest of the head being buried story is based on speculations and theories. No one has found a skull of the giant buried there, or if they did, I am sure I would have heard about it. It would be a greatest find of the century. And, this scenario is not connected to the rest of the Bible either, without any relevancy to the end-time prophecies, leaving you with some doubt and a sense of dissatisfaction … “Is this it?”
We must be mindful of such mixture of the biblical facts and legends and myths, and meticulously sort them out, if you really want to understand the biblical truth, and TRUTH only.
You will be really surprised when you start seeing how much of this kind of “filling the gap” of Bible stories having been done for so many years in the name of Bible teaching. If we do this to the Bible, then, so much for the inerrant and infallible Word of God declaration (Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, 1978), isn’t it? … because most of the teaching is based on the legend, made up fantasies, and worse, intentional and manipulative lies. I see numerous “teachers” declaring this biblical inerrancy on one hand, and teaching the legend and myth as biblical truth on the other … just does not make sense. That is the same as contaminating the pure Word of God. We must wake up and grow up out of this. The Bible is not a half-fiction creative writing, which is supposed to stimulate our imagination and fantasies. The Bible is a Book of prophecy, truth, and the message from our Father, written supernaturally in Parables in large part. You are to RECEIVE THE TRUTH FROM IT, and NOT ADD to it or FILL IN with your ideas or myth when you don’t understand it. And, we must decipher it with the tools our Father has already built in in the scripture … all answers are in the Bible and only in the Bible.
Now, let us leave proving that there is the skull of Goliath somewhere in Mount Calvary to archaeologists and historians, and move on with the connecting the key word in the Bible ….
So, first appearance of the word, “heel,” was attached to the first appearance of the serpent. Let us, then, keeping this in mind, we will continue on with reading the Bible. In the following sections, I would like you to pay attention to the contexts in which the word appears.
Then, next, I thought of a connection of this word, “heel,” to the “heel” in the account of the birth of Esau and Jacob.
(24) So when her days were fulfilled for her to give birth, indeed there were twins in her womb. (25) And the first came out red. He was like a hairy garment all over; so they called his name Esau. (26) Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.
Wow .. there are so many prophetic allusions in this short passage, which is part of a longer Parable. It is true that, wherever you read in the Bible, there is a Parable, but this one is very much about the end-time as well. Each allusion may need a full article to study adequately, because it requires some explanations as to how it connects with rest of the Book from Genesis to Revelation. But, I will only mention what is necessary to understand the significance of the term, “heel,” in this section.
A Side Note
One of the hints that says this part is about the end-time is this phrase: “Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.”
If you have read the Parables Decoded series, you might have guessed it. As I detailed in 1a: “Parable of the Creation,” when there is a number “6,” or 60, 600, 6 days, 6 months, 6 years, etc. you would like to consider a possibility of the number hinting 6000 years appointed for man to fulfill, or to work, before the Millennium, the ultimate Sabbath. However, they do not come in sets of three this time. The 6 water pots filled with water to the rim in the Parable of the Miracle on the Wedding in Cana (Jn 2:1-11) is a good example of it, and the Parable is about the Bride of Messiah and the Wedding and after the 6000 years (a forum post on this topic). Plus, Isaac is clearly a type of the Messiah in numerous Parabolic passages and accounts. He is the father of the promised seed in the natural (Gen 21:12; Rom 9:7; Heb 11:18); but at the same time, he is a type of the Messiah.
Just one thing, please keep in mind when you read passages as parables, is that the story in the natural you read on the surface of the Bible is not the same as the story that the Parable is telling. You would like to pick up key words, connect them, and decipher the spiritual message that is superimposed on the natural account … you will understand it better by practice.
So, the word, “heel,” in this Parable is a “hint,” and let us keep in mind for now that it is attached to Esau.
Then, another riddle that had been keeping me up at night sometimes was this appearance of Esau with hair all over him as a baby. What is this suggesting .. ? I looked for other references for this on the Bible. Without going too much into explanation, here is what I found out.
This “hair all over Esau’s body” is an allusion to “the beast.” … some of you said … Ah ha! … Yes.
I believe Esau is one of the types of the Anti-Christ. Then, is there another usage of this “beast” imagery in the Bible? For two or three witnesses may establish a word (Deut 17:6; mat 18:16), at least one more will be required.
This is very subtle, so some of you may disagree, but, although there may be more, I have not found anything else that related to Esau’s hairy body other than this so far. But, hang on …, when you have read the rest of the article and conclusion, you will see a clear connection.
This beastly image of a man was described in another type of the Anti-Christ in the Old Testament, Nebuchadnezzar, who became a beast himself in Daniel Chapter 4.
He was given a prophetic dream which includes the following passage:
(16) Let his heart be changed from that of a man, Let him be given the heart of a beast, And let seven times pass over him.
This is alluding to the future event where seven years will be given to the Anti-Christ, and “Let him be given the heart of a beast” means the person of Anti-Christ becoming taken over by the angel of the Bottomless Pit described in Revelation 11:7. But, this part does not mention the exact timing of the take over, so it has to be deciphered from other prophetic scriptures. Nonetheless, it is clearly establishing Nebuchadnezzar as a type of the Anti-Christ with key words “beast” and “seven times” and other clues even in just one verse here.
Then, it came to pass in 12 months.
(33) That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles’ feathers and his nails like birds’ claws.
It is a picture of a beast, but is also loaded with prophetic allusions and innuendos as well.
But, focusing on the theme of the article, this key word for the Anti-Christ, “beast,” is used very frequently … which is one thing to keep in mind in your study. And, it seems that, in the case of Esau in Genesis 25:25, it was “visually” hinted.
What about the term “red?” … that is a good question, but the in-depth discussion must be postponed probably until “Parable of Esau and Jacob” project for the Parables Decoded series, which I am “sensing” that I will work on sometime soon. It is also a key word for the end-time event, and suggests that Esau’s descendants will probably be the ones get bloody. The word “red” in Hebrew word used here, אַדְמֹנִי (admoniy) <H132>, shares the root word, דָּם (dam) <H1818>, just as another word for “red” or “ruddy”, אָדַם (adam) <H119>, and so does the name given to Esau later, Edom, אֱדֹם (edom) <H123>. Enough hints for you .. ? For those who would like to look into this key word connection, here is a list of related scriptures for you to study here: Isaiah 63:1-3; Revelation 14:19-20.
Well .. it was a little bit of digression, but it surely helps to establish that Esau is a type of the Anti-Christ and the nation that is to serve the other and be judged, does it not? Also, there are many accounts in the Prophets foretelling of severe judgments on Edom, and especially, the Book of Obadiah is dedicated for it.
While they were in her womb, YHVH told Rebekah, the mother of the twins, the following.
(23) And the LORD said to her: “Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger.”
Two nations: The nation of the Messiah; and the nation of the false messiah.
Now, some of you may be wondering about this … This “heel,” in this account belongs to Esau, a type of the Anti-Christ, but it was “His heel,” the Messiah’s heel, that was said to be bruised in Genesis 3:15 … whose heel is it? That is a very good point. Are they still connected? … Yes. But, for now, I ask you, sharp observers, to wait just a little bit to conclude anything. As you will see in the following references to “heel,” whose heel it may be is not really an important factor when it comes to a “marker” key word, and to regarding how scriptures are connected. That is why this is an excellent example to show how our Father uses the key words to mark the dots to connect. And, again, we must see the connections in the spirit, but not in the natural storyline.
So, here, for the second time, the word, “heel,” is attached to the mentioning of a type of the Anti-Christ, Esau/Edom, and the final judgment.
One of the Twelve
Next, we will go to the Gospel of John, where we find a Parable, in which the following prophecy is told: The Anti-Christ will rise from one of the Twelve Tribes. The Book of John is full of prophetic Parables, in which our Father encoded His plans for the entire 7000 years and some details for the Last Days. Did you know that? It is a great Book to practice deciphering the Parables.
Evidence 1: “heel” connection
OK … we all know that Yeshua our Messiah chose Twelve Disciples, and one of them betrayed Him. All four Gospels tell us this story. Yes. But, it is only in the Gospel of John that mentions this key word, “heel,” in relation to Judas’ betrayal. And, this key word, and another allusion I will mention later, tell us that the incident of the betrayal of one of the Twelve Disciples is a prophecy of the Anti-Christ coming from one of the Twelve Tribes.
Whenever you see number “12” in a Parable or an account in the Bible, it is very likely that the number prophetically represents the Twelve Tribes. And this case is one of the typical examples.
Let us look at the verse where Yeshua spoke of the “heel.” In this verse, He is talking about the one who will betray Him after eating the bread with him, and, he is the one who is representing one of His Twelve Disciples in the Parable.
(18) “I do not speak concerning all of you. I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, ‘He who eats bread with Me has lifted up his heel against Me.’
The scripture to be fulfilled is the following:
(9) Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, Who ate my bread, Has lifted up his heel against me.
Now, this key word, “heel,” is connected to Judas who betrayed the Messiah, and he represents one of the Twelve Tribes. Again, what “lifted up his heal against me” really means is not important for the prophetic purpose here. Trying to find it out what it meant back in His time in the Hebrew culture, in the wordily knowledge, is futile. We will never find out what it could have really meant. But, when you understand it as a key word that connects scriptures in a very meaningful way, throughout the Bible, a whole new prophetic perspective is opened up before your eyes.
Does not the imagery of “lifted up his heal against me” look similar to “He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel” (Gen 3:15) and “Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel” (Gen 25:26) … to you?
Hope it does …
There must be some meaning for this imagery and perhaps another connection … but I have not been granted the understanding of it yet. It is just that I was shown the connection of the word, “heel,” clearly and repeatedly. So, that is what I am sharing in this article.
The key point for us to rehearse is that it was Yeshua Himself who said that Psalm 41:9 had to be fulfilled by the betrayal of the disciple, who would eat the bread with Him, and it did come to pass in John 13:18, fulfilled by Judas’ betrayal. And all these scriptures are connected by the word “heel,” suggesting that Judas is a type of the Anti-Christ.
Evidence 2: “The Son of Perdition”
Then, we will now have to find a confirmation in the Bible that this betrayal by one of the Twelve Disciples is about the Anti-Christ, who is also called “the son of perdition.”
Yeshua actually did call Judas with this title in His last prayer for His Disciples.
(12) “While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
This is a key word connection, another hint, that implies that the one who betrays is a type of the Anti-Christ.
This term is surely one of his titles as you can see in the following verse, where Apostle Paul is prophesying the Great Deception and the appearance of the Anti-Christ.
2 Thessalonians 2:3
(3) Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
“The son of perdition” is undoubtedly one of the titles of the Anti-Christ.
So, then, Yeshua our Messiah is saying that He lost one of His Disciples because the prophecy in the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which means that it had been prophesied in the Old Testament that one of the Twelve Tribes would betray Him at the very end. And, it was played out prophetically in the betrayal by one of His Disciples. It sure is written … but it was hidden, and encoded with a kew word.
Finally, the title, “the son of perdition,” connected Judas’ betrayal and the Anti-Christ, and confirmed it. And, John 13:18 connected that to the key word, “heel.”
|Judas (one of the Twelve) -> betrayer -> “son of perdition” -> Anti-Christ|
Evidence 3: “Satan Entered Him”
Here is the second confirmation by another key word, or in this case, a key phrase.
This is a famous account where Yeshua reveals who the betrayer would be.
John 13:21, 25-27
(21) When Jesus had said these things, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me.” … (25) Then, leaning back on Jesus’ breast, he said to Him, “Lord, who is it?” (26) Jesus answered, “It is he to whom I shall give a piece of bread when I have dipped it.” And having dipped the bread, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. (27) Now after the piece of bread, Satan entered him. Then Jesus said to him, “What you do, do quickly.”
This incident is also a key incident, or key connector, which connects prophetic allusions and hints throughout the Bible. This means that this “Satan entered him” phrase should remind us of other incidents that involves the Anti-Christ. It sounds like Judas was possessed or taken over by Satan, and he was led to do an evil act, betraying the Messiah. Are there other descriptions in the Bible like this incident elsewhere?
Ultimately, that is what will happen to the person of Anti-Christ at the mid-point of the Last Week of Daniel 9:27. This is also summarized in a section, “The Beast = Anti-Christ,” of a prophetic study article, “The Bottomless Pit and the Beast.” In order to understand it better, please also take time to read the whole article.
To give you a quick heads-up, the idea is this …
The angel of the bottomless pit, Apollyon/Abaddon (Rev 9:11), is an evil and powerful spiritual being, probably one of the fallen angels, which will be released in the middle of the Last Seven Years of Daniel 9:27 and take over the man of Anti-Christ, “the prince to come” (Dan 9:26). This most wicked destroyer in history will “enter” the man and give him supernatural wickedness and power to destroy everything in his path, then literally, all hell will break loose, the beginning of the Great Tribulation.
Here is the passage of relevance:
(23) “And in the latter time of their kingdom, When the transgressors have reached their fullness, A king shall arise, Having fierce features, Who understands sinister schemes. (24) His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; He shall destroy fearfully, And shall prosper and thrive; He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people. (25) “Through his cunning He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; But he shall be broken without human means.
This is the Last Week in a nutshell, and describes how evil, fierce, and powerful the man of sin will be …. but it says, “ …, but not by his own power.” And, only by the power of YHVH, our Messiah, will he/it be destroyed.
This implies that a supernatural power will take over him. Then, when it happens, this is the point of “abomination of desolation” (Dan 9:27; 11:31; 12:11; Mat 24:15; Mk 13:14), which matches the timing of the beginning of the Great Tribulation, where the beast will rise out of the bottomless pit (Rev 9:11; 11:7, et al.). Yes … the angel of the bottomless pit, Apollyon/Abaddon, is the super-evil controller in the person of Anti-Christ, then, together, they will become THE BEAST of the Book of Revelation (Rev 7:11). (The timeline of all these are laid out in the Revelation Timeline article and the video in detail)
Here is one of the diagram from the video and the “Bottomless Pit and the Beast” article:
And, one more witness to this “beast entering man of sin” can be found also in Daniel. And, it is written in relation to one of the types of the Anti-Christ mentioned earlier, Nebuchadnezzar.
(16) Let his heart be changed from that of a man,
Let him be given the heart of a beast,
And let seven times pass over him.
So … this is another hint that what happened to Judas, which is the Satan entering him incident, is an allusion to what will happen to the Anti-Christ. Of course, “seven times” in this verse is referring to the Last Week, the Last Seven Years.
Evidence 4: “The Son of Simon”
There is more …
This is a very subtle hint, and could be controversial. But, I still believe this is one of the very well hidden hints for the identity of the Anti-Christ. The more I meditate on it and its connections to other hints, the surer have I become of it.
In the Matthew’s account of the selection of the Twelve Disciples, there is this verse.
Matthew 10:4 (Mark 3:18)
(4) Simon the Cananite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
In the BlueLetterBible.org version of the Strong’s Concordance, this word, “Cananite,” is translated as “zealous.” Therefore, people assume that it means “Simon the Zealot” who appears in Luke 6:15 and Acts 1:13. However, those are two different words in Greek.
- Cananite (Canaanite) = Καναναῖος (Kananaios) <G2581>, Pronunciation (kä-nä-nī’-os)
- zealot (zelotes) = Ζηλωτής (Zēlōtēs) <G2208>
… hardly the same word … are they?
And, here is the word study of, “Canaan,” from another account in Matthew 15:22, where a woman from Canaan asked the Messiah to pray for her demon possessed daughter.
- Canaan (Canaanite) = Χαναναῖος (Chananaios) <G5478>, Pronunciation (kä-nä-nī’-os)
As they appear to me, “Cananite” in Matthew 10:4 and “Canaanite” in Matthew 15:22 are two variations of the same word. There is some related background in the Old Testament, but there is no room for that discussion in the article. But, as you clearly see, the spellings are identical and how you pronounce them is exactly the same. The BLB Strong’s translation is clearly influenced by the other accounts of “Simon the Zealot,” and/or they might have followed the entry by Thayer’s Greek Lexicon they also included as a reference there.
“Canaanites” means “Canaanites,” people of Canaan …. and in the Bible, they are seed of serpent … in the natural, also in the spirit as a key word. No doubt. Therefore, in Matthew 10:4 (and Mark 3:18), it hints that “this particular” Simon is a seed of serpent. And, Judas is enlisted right after Simon the Cananite.
And, here is the connection… In the Gospel of John, unlike in the other Gospels, Judas has this unique description in addition to “Iscariot.” These are the only places you find this.
(71) He spoke of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, for it was he who would betray Him, being one of the twelve.
(26) Jesus answered, “It is he to whom I shall give a piece of bread when I have dipped it.” And having dipped the bread, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
Both in relation to the mentioning of his betrayal, in the same context, this “the Son of Simon” is attached to his name …. implying that Judas was a seed of serpent.
This cannot be explained in the natural, as you cannot find the answer for who this Simon is; this is a Parable and a key word connection. You might be asking … “Then, Simon the Disciple was the father of Judas?” Well … then, you are thinking in the natural .. away from the spiritual connection of the key words. He could have been, but there is no evidence that I know of in the Bible, and it is not relevant here. Historically, the Zealots were probably seed of serpent, trying to take back the fleshly kingdom from the Romans by force. In that sense … makes sense that Simon was also Canaanite. But, in combination of Matthew 10:4 (and Mark 3:18) and John 16:71 plus 13:26, the spiritual hint connects the “Canaanite” and Judas by blood: “the son of Simon” … that is the spiritual message.
Simon -> Canaanite -> seed of serpent -> father of Judas
Now, let us look at the summary of what we have discussed in this section:
- The Twelve Disciples are the type of the Twelve Tribes.
- Judas was one of them, and he betrayed the Messiah.
- Judas is a unmistakable type of the Anti-Christ.
- Connected by the key word, “heel”
- Called “the son of perdition” by Yeshua (Jn 17:12)
- Taken over by Satan (“Satan entered him”)
- Judas was a seed of serpent.
Then, Which Tribe?
Now, which tribe is the son of perdition from … ? This is naturally the next question.
But, please be careful now. We tend to, or are temped to, jump into conclusion that the tribe which Judas was from is the the tribe of the Anti-Christ. Hold your horses … That is in the natural realm. Judas is a “type” and “foreshadow” of the Anti-Christ in the spiritual realm, and the details about his background in the natural are not directly related to the parabolic storyline, and we must look for them elsewhere.
Besides, all the Disciples of Yeshua were probably from Judah, because people who populated Jerusalem and adjacent area, at that time, were mainly the remnant of the Kingdom of Judah. The name, Judas, is a Greek version of a Hebrew name, יְהוּדָה, (yehudah) <H3063>, meaning Judah. And, his surname was “Iscariot,” probably means “man of Kerioth” <G2469> a village or town near Jerusalem. Its meaning is highly debated and not conclusive also, and it is probably another key word that hints us something else … which I cannot get into at this time.
In any case … this means that the tribe of origin of the Disciples, in the natural, will not be helpful in identifying the tribe of the Anti-Christ .. you see that.
But, there are some other “hints” in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. And, they suggest that it is apparently the Tribe of Dan, which is the origin of the rebellious one.
Evidence 1: “heel” Connection
First evidence I would like us to examine is the prophecy of Jacob. And it contains the key word “heel.”
He spoke prophecies for his twelve sons and two grandsons, Manasseh and Ephraim, at his death bed. And, the one for Dan was the following:
(17) Dan shall be a serpent by the way, A viper by the path, That bites the horse’s heels So that its rider shall fall backward.
The first part, “Dan shall be a serpent by the way, A viper by the path,” is very clear by now. The key words, “serpent” and “viper,” are both for the sons of serpent, or the seed of serpent. And, as it was established in Parable of Adam and Eve, they literally exist. As numerous scriptures and accounts confirm each other in the Bible, the Anti-Christ will be undeniably a “seed of serpent” (Gen 3:15), and this above scripture also confirms that.
And, this key word, “heel,” we have been tracking fits right in to the prophetic connection we have been discussing as well. … And, this was the prophecy given to Dan by his father Jacob, which has not been yet fulfilled.
Evidence 2: Not Chosen
I imagine that many of you have also noticed this following scriptural fact, and wondered about it.
The Tribe of Dan is not listed among the tribes from which the 144,000 will be chosen.
(4) And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:
(5) of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed;
(6) of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed;
(7) of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed;
(8) of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.
No Dan ….
We cannot find the reason for this in the Book of Revelation, but this is a serious omission, indeed. Dan is not among the chosen at the end, just as Judas, who had been among the Twelve in the beginning, went astray and dropped out from the Twelve Disciples — Judas’ account is actually a prophetic allusion to this fact as well.
Evidence 3: Parable of the Anti-Christ
Now, we will look at a Parable in relation to the Tribe of Dan, which also connects the tribe and the Anti-Christ. To me, this Parable was the final confirmation; it “nailed it” … sort of speak.
For those who are not used to this method of reading the Bible, the revelation may not come immediately. I strongly recommend that you get familiarize with deciphering the scripture as a Parable and by connecting them by the key words, and that you reread the chapter with the knowledge you will gain from this discussion. The Parables Decoded series is written for this purpose, and most of the Bible study articles on Olivet Journal are done and written according to this method. Please also beware that some of the key words are hidden so well that we need to ask our Father to help us see them and keep an open mind and spirit to His leading.
Let us begin …
Please read Judges Chapter 18 (Judges 18) in its entirety in your own Bible, which is not paraphrased, or you will not understand any of the following discussions.
I am not commenting verse by verse. And, please, do not get caught up with the details of the story in the natural, as we are gleaning the hints from the key words. The story in the natural is not directly related to the spiritual message that is superimposed on it. The points to pay attention to will be discussed below.
Next, we will examine the allusions from the chapter, which imply that the Tribe of Dan is the tribe of the Anti-Christ. Although there are more interesting key words, allusions, and hints, I will limit the list to four items in order to focus on the important facts, which are that: (1) the chapter is about the Last Days and the Anti-Christ; and (2) it is implying that he is from the Tribe of Dan.
A. “Six hundred men” is mentioned three times (666) in the chapter. And they are all mentioned with “armed with weapons of war,” implying that there will be a war scene in relation to the Anti-Christ. Perhaps, it is also an indication of the timing of the occurrence, which would be the beginning of the Last Week of Daniel 9:27, described in Daniel 11:21-45. The whole backdrop of the scene of Judges 18 is that the Danites are trying to take over the city, which means that it must be before the mid-point of the Last Week.
Judges 18:11, 16, 17
(11) And six hundred men of the family of the Danites went from there, from Zorah and Eshtaol, armed with weapons of war. …
(16) The six hundred men armed with their weapons of war, who were of the children of Dan, stood by the entrance of the gate.
(17) Then the five men who had gone to spy out the land went up. Entering there, they took the carved image, the ephod, the household idols, and the molded image. The priest stood at the entrance of the gate with the six hundred men who were armed with weapons of war.
The reference to these 600 men being all Danites makes us wonder if all the followers of the Anti-Christ in those days, including the 10 nations under the Ten Kings in Revelation 17, are all descendants of the Tribe of Dan … but, we cannot possibly determine that in the natural at this moment. Also, we must understand the relationship between the Anti-Christ and the ten nations, and of course, the Zionist Illuminati who are behind the scene. I will touch on this issue in the Conclusion section.
B. “Seeking the inheritance to dwell in ..” just as the seed of serpent have been and are trying to do even now. But, the Parable is not about the current time period … make no mistake … but about the Last Days, which is not yet. The Last Week of Daniel 9:27 has not begun yet until the Anti-Christ appears on the scene. (We must be precise about the timing and be alert. Too many people are confused about what the Last Week means and when it will start. Be not deceived, but be diligent in studying it. For your study aid, please read “The Last Week of Daniel 9:27: Beginning in 2017?,” and watch “Revelation Timeline with Graphics”)
(1) In those days there was no king in Israel. And in those days the tribe of the Danites was seeking an inheritance for itself to dwell in; for until that day their inheritance among the tribes of Israel had not fallen to them.
That is true also in the future, in the Last Days, the Tribe of Dan will not be allotted the inheritance as we read in Revelation 7:4-8, because of their way of serpent. They will try to take it by force, according to this Parable.
C. And, they spy out, strike, and take over the country of Laish, לַיִשׁ, which means “lion,” <H3919>. This is a key word for Jerusalem.
Judges 18:7, 14, 27, 29
(7) So the five men departed and went to Laish. They saw the people who were there, how they dwelt safely, in the manner of the Sidonians*, quiet and secure. There were no rulers in the land who might put them to shame for anything. They were far from the Sidonians, and they had no ties with anyone.
(14) Then the five men who had gone to spy out the country of Laish answered and said to their brethren, “Do you know that there are in these houses an ephod, household idols, a carved image, and a molded image? Now therefore, consider what you should do.”
(27) So they took the things Micah** had made, and the priest who had belonged to him, and went to Laish, to a people quiet and secure; and they struck them with the edge of the sword and burned the city with fire.
(29) And they called the name of the city Dan, after the name of Dan their father, who was born to Israel. However, the name of the city formerly was Laish.
* “Sidonians,” as in “Sidon and Tyre,” is another key word for the seed of serpent.
** “Micah” as a key word is established in Judges 17, and it means Satan, in the entire Parable (A short verse-by-verse commentary on Judges 17 is available as a forum post).
Jerusalem and Judah have always been associated with “lion” (Gen 49:9; Hos 5:14; Rev 5:5). In the scripture, we also find this example:
Isaiah 29:1-2, 7
(1) “Woe to Ariel, to Ariel*, the city where David dwelt! Add year to year; Let feasts come around.
(2) Yet I will distress Ariel; There shall be heaviness and sorrow, And it shall be to Me as Ariel.
(7) The multitude of all the nations who fight against Ariel, Even all who fight against her and her fortress, And distress her, Shall be as a dream of a night vision.
*“Ariel” אֲרִיאֵל <H740> here means “lion” and referring to Jerusalem, in this prophecy of the Last Days.
Judges 18:29 reinforces that the head of the Tribe of Dan, the Anti-Christ, put his name on Jerusalem, taking over. (But, note that it is in the Parable level, and not directly related to the actual city, Dan, in the natural realm)
D. “Carved image” or “idol” is a very significant key word here, in the context of the Last Week of Daniel 9:27. They are repeatedly mentioned in the chapter, and most significantly, as the final achievement of the war, the Danites set up the “carved image” …. reminding us of the “image” that the Anti-Christ is supposed to set up in the middle of the Last Week (Rev 13:14-15). Also, please note that the wars that lead to this setting up of the image are different from the Armageddon, which is the last war after the total annihilation of Jerusalem by the Anti-Christ.
So, the Danites go after the inheritance, which is the city called “Laish” (lion), Jerusalem in the spirit, and when they achieve it, they will set up the “Micah’s carved image,” which in the spirit means the carved image Satan created, in the Parable in Judges 17, the Image of the Anti-Christ (A short verse-by-verse commentary on Judges 17 is available as a forum post).
(30) Then the children of Dan set up for themselves the carved image; and Jonathan the son of Gershom, the son of Manasseh, and his sons were priests to the tribe of Dan until the day of the captivity of the land.
(31) So they set up for themselves Micah’s carved image which he made, all the time that the house of God was in Shiloh.
As a matter of fact, this passage is exactly referring to the setting up of the “abomination of desolation,” when Yeshua our Messiah said to be the timing for everyone to “flee” (Mat 24:15; et al.), because it marks the beginning of the dreadful days. Considering the other hints and allusions, which prophetically puts this whole chapter in the timeline of the Last Days with characters such as the Anti-Christ, Jerusalem, and carved image, etc. …, this ending can be none other than the mid-week event, the beginning of the Great Tribulation.
And, I might add …, if you can figure out who this “Jonathan the son of Gershom, the son of Manasseh” is referring to, you will probably find out who the False Prophet may be … This name appeared all of a sudden, and out of nowhere in the context, and has rather specific information attached to it. There must be something encoded in this information. One of the things I can discern from this is that the False Prophet, the second beast of Revelation 13, is from the Tribe of Manasseh.
Other Scriptures with “heel”
I believe the study so far has made a very strong case for the Anti-Christ being related to the Tribe of Dan, wouldn’t you agree? But, there are a few more scriptures to cover.
Tying up some loose ends, we are going to briefly look at the rest of the scriptures with the key word, “heel.”
So, first, let us go back to the Jacob’s prophecy for Dan, because we did not discuss the last half of the verse.
(17) Dan shall be a serpent by the way, A viper by the path, That bites the horse’s heels So that its rider shall fall backward.
I do not know what this phrase exactly means in the natural. I really do not know …. but, again, the imagery of “going after the heels” seems to be a key phrase for the last treacherous days. You will see what I mean in the following scriptures:
(9) The net takes him by the heel, And a snare lays hold of him.
1 Samuel 25:12
(12) So David’s young men turned on their heels and went back; and they came and told him all these words.
(5) Why should I fear in the days of evil, When the iniquity at my heels surrounds me?
(5) They pursue at our heels; We labor and have no rest.
The following are very brief commentaries on the above scriptures in relation to “heel(s).”
Job 18:9 – I have not received deeper understanding of this verse, but there is a key word for the Anti-Christ and the seed of serpent, “beasts” in the context, in Job 18:3, and “snare” in Job 18:18-19, which is related to him as well.
1 Samuel 25:12 – The whole Chapter 25 is a Parable describing one of the incidents which will happen in the Last Days, and Nabal נָבָל <H5037>, meaning, “fool,” is a type of the Anti-Christ. David’s young men “turned on their heels” to get away from Nabal.
Psalm 49:5 – Here, “the days of evil,” refers to the Last Day, especially the Great Tribulation, and we can be sure of it because of the phrase, “When the iniquity at my heels surrounds me.” Also, in the same context, there is this key word, “beasts” (Ps 49:12), also supporting it.
Lamentations 5:5 – This Book is about the Great Tribulation by itself. It is the army of the Anti-Christ who will “pursue at our heels.”
There you have them … all the “heel” scriptures in NKJV are now covered.
All occurrences of the word “heel” or “heels” in above references are related to and connect each other in relation to the Anti-Christ and events in the Last Days, particularly about being chased by the army of the Anti-Christ being hinted … just as the other references we have already discussed.
Meaning of “Dan”
Lastly, the meaning of this name also confirms the entire discussion above.
Dan דָּן <H1835> means “a judge.”
One of the prophecies uttered by Jacob at his death bed tells us this also. Let us see the entire prophecies again for a better understanding.
(16) “Dan shall judge his people As one of the tribes of Israel. (17) Dan shall be a serpent by the way, A viper by the path, That bites the horse’s heels So that its rider shall fall backward.
This .. I had always wondered about, because there is no account where the Tribe of Dan is “judging” His people as an authority or a king in the Bible, except Samson (Judges 13-16), which ended with a disaster. It had been a big mystery to me. But, this study I have done on the Anti-Christ and the Tribe of Dan solved that mystery all together.
Now, let me ask … Who is the ultimate Judge? … Yes … YHVH our God.
And, He has judged His people many times throughout the history … but, how? It has always been by sending other nations against His people, destroying Jerusalem and Israel, and exiling them. It was mainly done by the Assyrians and the Babylonians, but also by other surrounding tribes, such as Medians and Philistines, attacking the Israelites in smaller scales, in the Book of Judges. Furthermore, in most cases, as far as I can tell, those enemies are the types of the Anti-Christ and his army in one way or another, and all those incidents and accounts are pretty much all about the Last Days in parables.
By the way, did you know that Samson (Judges 13-16) is a type of the Anti-Christ also? Samson was a Danite, who judged the people of YHVH. Samson did not punish the people of YHVH in the natural story, but there are numerous key words in this account, which suggest that he is a type of the Anti-Christ. And at the end, he takes down with him the Philistines, the Dagon worshippers (Jdg 16:23), who terrorized the people of YHVH, and buried in between “Zorah and Eshtaol” (Jdg 16:31), which connects him to the encampment of the Anti-Christ (‘Mahaneh Dan’ <H4264>; Jdg 13:25; Judges 18:2, 8, 11). This is another connection between the Tribe of Dan and the Anti-Christ.
Well … therefore, “judge his people” means that the Tribe of Dan, or someone from the tribe, will be used by YHVH to judge His people, and apparently at the end as the final instrument of His chastisement. That is what this name, Dan, means.
Likewise, the name “Daniel” דִּנִיֵּאל <H1840> means “God is my judge.” The part, דִּנִיֵּ, (daniy) means “my judge,” and אל (el) means “God.”
In addition … this is a bonus hint …
The first time “Dan” is mentioned in the Bible is not when he was born to Jacob, by Bilhah, a maid of Rachel (Gen 30:6). But, it was in Genesis 14 where the account of the War of the Five Kings, or the Battle of Siddim, is told. And, did you know that this account is a Parable in which how the Last Day war at the end of the Great Tribulation, aka. Armageddon, will take place, step-by-step, with all the characters who need to be there, is described?
Here in the following verse, it was hinted that it had something to do with “Dan.”
(14) Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained servants who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit as far as Dan.
Abram, the type of the Messiah went after the enemy, who kept his brethren in captive, with His “born-again” servants chasing them all the way to “Dan” … is roughly what it means.
It is difficult to fully understand the significance of this appearance of the name “Dan” by looking at just one verse. But, it becomes much more significant in light of all the revelations we discussed above. And, by the way … there is already an article written and published on the Genesis 14 War by Olivet Journal.
We went through so much so quickly. I hope you will go over it again, and again, and fully absorb the revelation. But, just so you may more easily process the information, here is a list of main points we covered.
- The key word, “heel,” connected the prophecies of Anti-Christ throughout the Bible.
- One of the Twelve Disciples who betrayed Yeshua is a type of the Anti-Christ.
- Judas is the type alludes to the fact that the Anti-Christ is from one of the Twelve Tribes.
- Judas was a seed of serpent, which prophesies that the Anti-Christ is also a seed of serpent.
- The Anti-Christ is from is the Tribe of Dan, a seed of Jacob, which is evidenced by …
- Jacob prophesied Dan will be like the serpent and will judge his people (Gen 49:17).
- Dan is missing from the tribes from which the 144,000 will be chosen.
- Judges 18 is a Parable that prophesies the Last Day and the Tribe of Dan Anti-Christ.
- The name, “Dan,” means “a judge,” which prophesies that Dan will be the instrument whom YHVH will finally use to judge both His people and their enemy.
First, I promised to explain the relationship between the Anti-Christ and the Zionist Illuminati, so, I will start with that. Please be informed that I will paraphrase some biblical facts to break things down. More biblical discussion can be found in the article, “The Bottomless Pit and the Beast.”
The ten nations, under the ten horns (spiritual powers) of the seven headed beast in Revelation 17, will be the nations in the Middle East. According to Daniel 11:21-45, the Anti-Christ and his troops will bully around in the area quite a bit stirring things up, and eventually, focus his attention to the land of Israel. And, almost by force, exchange the covenant with the leaders of Israel, which is the beginning to the Daniel’s Last Week (Dan 9:27). And, after three and a half years, as “the angel of the bottomless pit” takes over the man of Anti-Christ, he will set up the “abomination of desolation” and will begin destroying everything.
The Illuminati power may think this man is their hero, “their man,” and is under their control for the first half of the Last Week, as they will be the ones first control the Arabic nations — which you can already see them doing right at this moment. But, the Anti-Christ is a bit different kind of powerful man. As the Bible says, he will be already quite “intriguing” (Dan 11:21, 34) and draw many to him by his charm in the first half (‘falling away’ in 2Th 2:3 also occurs at this time), but, lo and behold, when “the angel of the bottomless pit” enters him (Rev 9:11; 11:7), just like Satan entered Judas, he will be the supernaturally empowered wickedest man in history, being called “the beast” appropriately. Now, he is the destroyer demonic being, Apollyon/Abaddon (Rev 9:11), personified. That is what the revealing of “the man of sin, and the son of perdition” (2Th 2:3) means. Then, according to Revelation 17, he will destroy the City of Babylon (Rev 14:8; 16:19; 18:10; 18:21), which is the center of the Babylonian system united by Kabbalah/Freemasonry/Judaism (Category “Judaism and Kabbalah”). And, finally, the man of sin will take over Jerusalem, treading down everything in his path, taking some of His people captive and killing others, until our Messiah returns with His Saints, and strikes him and all the enemies, as the “Stone” struck down the image of Nebuchadnezzar (Dan 2:35), and establishes His glorious everlasting Kingdom.
I have briefly explained this to show that: (1) the Anti-Christ has his own troops; (2) he acts very independently; (3) the ten nations will follow “him” alone; and (4) will destroy the Zionist Illuminati system, turning against them in the mid-Week.
These facts tell us that he will be someone who is not totally part of the Zionist Illuminati cabal that is running the entire world right now, and he will also “judge” the cabal used by our Father, before he himself is destroyed by the power of our Messiah (Dan 8:25).
Therefore, The Anti-Christ will not be controlled by the Illuminati, as it may seem in the beginning, but will be the instrument of choice of our Father for His final purpose — Please remember that.
Now, this man of sin, the beast, is from the line of the Tribe of Dan. This article has established this truth all and only by the biblical evidence. Each evidence is intricately but surely connected to others confirming each other. And, I am standing before Him absolutely in awe of the way our Father has hidden all these things so perfectly in the entire Bible. If you can see that in this humble example of key word study, can you imagine how much more of His mysteries is hidden in the entire Bible? It is absolutely unfathomable to me. Furthermore, He is letting us taste just a flavor of what it is like to understand how His Word is perfect and supernatural, all connected from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, flawlessly. This is what “inerrant and infallible Word of God” really means to me. Now, that is another awe-strike on me that He is revealing to us how He has done it!
As I conclude this article, I strongly sense, and I am convinced, that our Father would like you to learn the Bible study method which is presented in it, as well as to receive and understand the content and the revelation. He is clearly showing the way He wants us to study and search for the mystery. That is why I have done my very best to retrace the exact way He had revealed the mysteries to me, hoping that you would see how He did it.
His Words echo in my spirit … all the answers and tools are in the Bible. That is so true; I am an enthusiastic witness. It becomes more and more real to me every time I learn a mystery, and it is happening at a fast pace lately, one after another. My writing ability cannot keep up with the amount of revelation I have been receiving … so, I encourage you, with unreserved enthusiasm, to learn how to unlock the mysteries by these examples, and receive the blessing, privilege, and glory of unveiling the truth for yourself.
It is written …
(2) It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,
But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
He concealed all the mysteries in the Bible we have in our hands, and you are to search and unlock them, by the “keys” he already built in the Word for you.
And, be in AWE! of His unsearchable wisdom, might, everlasting love, and majesty.
“Blessing and honor and glory and power
Be to Him who sits on the throne,
And to the Lamb,
forever and ever!”
