a. Background/overview of the Antichrist

The Antichrist made a promise to himself to rule the world in a past
ncarnation and the wheel of karma has turned to give him the
opportunity in this lifetime. His potential and opportunities for
evil will be counterbalanced by the ability to do good. In early
becoming ever more greedy of power.

The Antichrist will become a world leader even though he misuses his
and what he is capable of. The name may sound somewhat barbaric to
European ears. He will be influenced by old customs known in the
literature but generally forgotten.

The Antichrist will be worse than Hitler. In ~1989 he's living in the
Middle East. He is at a very crucial time in his life, when
mpressions will influence his future lifepath. Currently in the
corruption. The atmosphere is having an effect an effect on him and

He will succeed in conquests but only at the cost of terrible
bloodshed by  conventional weapons, but will save his nuclear arsenal
for later unspeakable deeds. So many people will be killed that the
living will not be able to haul them away to be buried fast enough.
The people of the world will be accustomed to the sight of corpses
and the sight of death will will not make people squeamish because
they will be around it so much.

Neither Kadaffi or the Ayatollah Khomeni are the Antichrist, but they

He will be educated in Egypt because of its current stability  and

The social upheavals of the times will contribute to laying the way 
open for the Antichrist to take over. Various countries will have
their social and political structure will be turned totally upside
and believe they are justified in their draconian campaigns. The

Despite the massive propaganda campaigns of the Antichrist that paint
a grand and wondrous picture of his worldwide achievements, other

The Antichrist will be in action near the Mediterranean Sea, the Red
Sea, and the Arabian Sea. He will gain immense world-wide power.
Thursday will be an important day for him, he will take it as his day
of worship. He will be  a threat to everyone but particularly in the
East because he will control both China and Russia and the entire
Asian continent under his control, for the first time in world

The social and political upheavals orchestrated by the Antichrist will
be felt particularly in northern, developed countries with cooler
climates. During his time  societies will be torn and cast into chaos
and confusion. Many doomsayers will arise as false prophets, claiming
to have divine revelations and know the path of salvation for the

For a short period the reign of the Antichrist over his realm will be
no fighting because of his police state. But people will begin to
and destruction, with many people dying for their cause. Prophecies
from the Revelations will apply, such as the quote about "rivers of
blood up to horse's harnesses". The times will be extremely violent
and traumatic.

The Antichrist will take Thursday as his day of reverence. There will
be enormous warfare and bloodshed from his weapons, one "a monster
borne of a very hideous beast". Hard radiation will cause gross

b. Political & religious philosophies of the Antichrist

The Antichrist will develop a systematic philosophy based on Marx and
Engels that takes advantage of the elements related to the complete
control of a population. Russia and China will be  vulnerable to the
Antichrist will use his philosophy as a way of conquering the entire
Asian continent before setting out to take over the rest of the
the different institutions of political power.

The Antichrist will corrupt the religion of Christianity with the
ntent of destroying it, but also distort the beliefs of Islam. He

The Antichrist will study and emulate Hitler and his techniques 
avidly to try to surpass him and avoid his mistakes. He will have
access to books and material not available or known to the general
on Hitler and he will study them very carefully.

The Antichrist will be doomed from the start of his campaign,  because
universe. For people who choose this path, "It's just a matter of how
far they go before they fail and what effects they have on the lives 
around them." Like the ultimate downfall of many tyrants his empire
and power will be inherently unstable. His own subcommanders will be
The political map of the world, the boundaries of countries, will
change but the continents of the world will still be shaped the same.

c. Ogmios

Ogmios is the counterforce to the Antichrist who will  help tear down
the tyranny and balance the universe in a way that is harmonious to
man's central spiritual source. He will be supported by many
countries still fighting the Antichrist. He will probably arise from
the underground movement. In one of the countries conquered by the
Antichrist the underground will be tightly organized. Ogmios will
arise from it, and confront the Antichrist in the area in Eurasia
close to Constantinople, as WWWIII is approaching its end. Ogmios wil
come from somewhere in central Europe. He is very well prepared
a strong aura of negative powers.

Ogmios will be "of the people". He will have worked up through the
through honest work. He will have technical training but will rely
mainly on his practicality. He's an old soul who has his priorities
one to lead the world to ultimate peace, but he is the one to help
bring down "the one who would destroy the world" (the Antichrist) to
open the way for the one who will guide the world to ultimate peace.

The organization run by Ogmios will survive the worst of the time of
troubles and will serve the basis for future governments after the
Antichrist is put down. The "glory of the sun" is behind Ogmios; is
s a man of great stature, but has a direct, sometimes "gruff"
an upstanding man of strong principles and morals, making him a
not influenced by dogma, and his organization under his leadership is
the effective opposition to the Antichrist, but he is not haughty.

Ogmios will be "small" in that his forces and resources are meager.
His underground movement will be scraping to keep body and soul

Ogmios is the Celtic equivalent of Hercules. He is represented as an
old, bald-headed man with wrinkled and sun-burnt skin yet possessing
the attributes of Hercules. He draws a multitude of joyful followers
and admirers by beautiful chains of gold and amber attached to their
ears. The other end of the chains are fixed to his tongue, and he
bestows on his captives a smiling face. This is the native god of
eloquence, regarded with the reverence given to Hercules, because he
tself best in his old age. The chains indicate the bond between the
orator's tongue and the ears of enraptured listeners.


The present pope will be assassinated and the next pope will not last 
long. The final pope will be a tool of the Antichrist. The Roman 
church is already a tool of the Antichrist, indirectly supporting his
aims, even though they may not be
aware of it.

The last three popes of the Catholic church will fall in short 
of the  Antichrist. The last, the one born slightly misshapen, will
s eliminated. His treachery will accelerate, and his death will

e. Assassination of the current pope

During the period that the Antichrist begins to flex his power, the
current pope will be assassinated when he goes on a trip away from
the Vatican. The two cardinals nearest to the pope will realize the
themselves up in the Vatican to try to protect themselves.

The current Pope is desirous of world peace and is working against
come when the special interests inside the church who want to hold
onto their power and wealth will misadvise the Pope in such a way as
to place him in a dangerous situation which he is unaware of. The
assassination will lead to social unrest  and rioting in Rome. The
next pope will not last long. There will be only two other popes
after the present one.

The pope and several of his entourage will be assassinated in late

The present pope will be assassinated shortly prior to the appearance
of a comet that will be clearly visible from the sky of the Northern
Hemisphere. His concern for the human condition, leading him to
treacherous travel arrangements, wil be his downfall. The next pope
"tool" into the office. 

f. Second-to-last pope "swallowed" by Antichrist's schemings

The second-to-last pope instated after the assassination of the
current one will have a short reign. Due to political blunders and
mistakes he will pave the way for the final pope to be a tool of the
Antichrist. His reign is an omen of the final downfall of the church.

Before the Antichrist comes to full power it will appear that other
leaders are above him and in control of the power structure other
than him. In reality the Antichrist is using them as stepping stones
n his quest for world power. During this period he will have
traitorous cardinal working for him, spying on the second-to-last
the pope's personal  correspondence, so that it has different
connotations. It will make the situation appear inordinately worse
than it is in reality, causing the pope to react inappropriately.
This way the populace will be more likely to see him as incompetent
and destabilize his authority, possibly by being assassinated. The
cardinal will be troubled by his betrayal because of the obvious
and will rationalize away his backstabbing.


The last pope will be elected shortly after the discovery of the tomb
of an ancient Roman whose philosophies greatly influence western
thought, something like within a year's time. This is the "poisonous"
about the ultimate destruction of the Catholic church.

The last pope will probably be French, with a swarthy complexion and
blue eyes. There will be an air of mystery to him. He will have a
clubfoot, a congenital defect in the bone. (It won't be caused by
njury, he was born with it.) His mind has been scarred by the
are different. 

He entered the church at a young age out of bitterness and desperation
because he knew he would never get a girl to love and marry him. His
experiences, but instead was warped into cruelty from pain, and he
s a weakness that the Antichrist exploits.

This pope will want to show his enemies, "look at me; I'm powerful; I
can do it; I'm better than you." After he attins the power he
murder anyone himself, but will open up avenues for the Antichrist to
future pope now appears to be kindly on the surface because it is
advantageous for him to be perceived that way, but the sinister side
of his personality is deeply rooted.

The final pope will betray his Church by revealing extremely  crucial
and  sensitive information directly to the Antichrist, information
that the Antichrist could never have obtained even through his spies
n the church.


Ruin will befall the Catholic church because of its leaders'  ambition
for illegitimate power. The leaders will become vainglorious and
think that they can handle whatever they desire to grasp, and it will
be their downfall. Their ambitions will be chilled when they fail and
the church will be subject to great upheaval, with the Pope
ultimately being dethroned. Catholics will become alienated and
church, and the sphere of influence of the Church will greatly

The base of the Catholic Church in Rome will be destroyed in an
accident, as if the city sank into the sea. This will somewhat
coincide with events in the Middle east and some people will connect
the two, but in reality it is a coincidence. However the Arabs will
quickly take advantage of the situation even though they didn't cause
t. The restrictions of the Vatican will cause the church to crumble.
They may rally, but it will be a blow they will never recover from.

The downfall will reveal why the church finally collapsed after
natural and human-triggered disasters. The force will involve the sea
and a great energy force from the sky descending and dissolving the
landscape. It will be termed a natural disaster because it's beyond
the capability of anyone on the earth to produce the force. No one
can find any cause so it is labelled an "Act of Nature". However, the
more important event of the time, which people will be distracted
from noticing, is the Antichrist's invasion of Turkey.


During the time of the Antichrist a secretive, conspirational cabal
are "pulling the strings" behind the scenes to manipulate world
operate figureheads in many countries, governments, and the major
their influence. They hold positions that appear to be relatively
minor, like advisors and under-secretaries and such, but are key

for the same goals their governments are supposedly working for, but
behind the scenes they band together and pool their information and
contacts to work for their own ends. They do not appear to have any
like sharp teeth sunk into everything.

This secret organization has been in existence for several
banking powers and money centers of the world. Only the families
nvolved are aware. The cabal of leaders has been very slowly but
take over but stay behind the scenes.

At first when the Antichrist comes along the leaders of the Cabal
they can use to unite the area and reign it into their realm of
control. But the Antichrist ends up turning the tables on them.

. Cabal involved in military and economic conquests

The Antichrist successfully takes over nearly all of Europe. The cabal
of international financiers and bankers will not stay in active war
the underground will begin to flourish.

The Cabal families made their influence and fortunes in the banking
and commodities industries, such as gold or diamond mines, leather,
tins, etc, like the colonial barons associated with the European
materials of the Third World nations. "The seventh and the fifth"
of the fifth.

The Cabal manipulates the economy to cause the unemployment or
nflation rates to rise or fall at their whim. They have affected
everyone's life.

Somehow through the espionage powers of the Antichrist, the seven key
leaders of the secret cabal will be discovered and destroyed. This is
chaos to seize or take advantage of their assets  in their weakened
forces that opposed him.

But in this case it is shortsighted of him because it was the cabal
that has been instigating the warfare going on through the decades
and centuries, and destroying them in effect seals the "beginning of
the end" for the Antichrist because their hidden activities promoted
longer present and the natural inclination for world peace will
assert itself, thereby doing away with the Antichrist.

k. Fundamentalist fanatics' infiltrations into governments

for their own ends will band together to obtain *key* posts in the
critical points in the power flow where they can exert their
nfluence to subtly affect world events in their favor.

Leaders in the Middle East will become aware and alarmed by their
encroachments and will change their laws, making it more difficult
for Americans to travel in this area. It will affect American money,
currencies, and trade with the U.S. The Antichrist, in the midst of
building a power base, will be influenced by these actions, in a way
that will be harmful to the Christian cause later. The religious
fundamentalists will cause their own undoing in this way.

l. Manipulation of the IRA in Ireland by the underworld

Members of the underworld will send faulty arms and drugs to fighters
n Ireland. The British and the IRA both believe they are fighting
for the good of the country but at the last minute realize they have
been destroying it. At the last minute they will try to compromise
but will be foiled by the manipulations of the underworld
conspirators who are playing each side against the other. The
underworld elements are spread in many areas but  the arms and drugs

m. Wealthy U.S. businessman a closet revolutionary and Nazi

A very wealthy and famous businessman in the U.S. will be secretly
nvolved with the American Nazi Party and the Ku Klux Klan in the
expanding his influence behind the scenes. This groundwork will prove
useful for the Antichrist later on. The man will have a puppet, a
figurehead, but he will pull the strings. The link will not be known
until the time of the Antichrist.

o. Fundamentalist censorship

A distortion in religious values will plague the populace during the
times of troubles. Fundamentalist religion and its fanatics will be
like an old man holding a thick oaken stick over his followers, to
make sure they don't step out of line. This is opposed to to spirit
of honor, valor, loyalty to one's country, and all the other virtues.
The fundamentalists will be both Christian and Moslem.

During the time of troubles and massive earth upheavals, the countries
that harbor fundamentalist religions and philosophies will become
very powerful, claiming to offer the true comfort and path for the
and education and censor books. 


The final pope is captured into the influence of the Antichrist during
a period of great civil unrest, war, and desolation, and many other
events, each topping the ones before, leading up to the  time of

During the time of troubles the assassination of world leaders will
become extremely common, so much that the population will not even
keep track of who is the current leader, thinking it a futile
exercise because they are assassinated so frequently. With the
ambitions for leadership, except for the Antichrist, who will be
actually orchestrating most of the assassinations himself.
