    Is there an Anti-Type to King Nebuchdnezzer?

    Nebuchadnezzer was the ruler of ancient Babylon, who tried, to force, on pain of death, to get the whole known World during his time period to Worship an image he had set up. He ruled the whole known World of his time period; and his desire was to get all Mankind to Worship an Image he had set up. Anyone refusing to bow in worship to his image was to be thrown into the fiery furnace, and killed. All did, except three of Jehovah's faithful Worshippers, who ended up being thrown into the fiery furnace because they flatly refused to Bow to this Image Nebuchdnezzer had set up. {Daniel 3:8-30}

    1 "King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold, ninety feet high and nine feet [ a ] wide, and set it up on the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon. 2 He then summoned the satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates and all the other provincial officials to come to the dedication of the image he had set up. 3 So the satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates and all the other provincial officials assembled for the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up, and they stood before it. 4 Then the herald loudly proclaimed, "This is what you are commanded to do, O peoples, nations and men of every language: 5 As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6 Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace." {Daniel 3:1-6 NIV}

    So this was no mere mild passive request! It was a demand! It was a case of do, or die!

    Is it entirely possible that there is an Anti-type of Nebuchadnezzers Image, that would also, on pain of death, gain Worshippers through threats of coercion and outright murder? Is there any events in recorded history that would point the finger at a Religious faith that, in fashion of Nebuchadnezzer, gained converts through threats of murder or even outright murder itself? To terrorize individuals into accepting their faith as the only way of Worship? Forcing converts to join with them? As did Nebuchadnezzer? Yes! There most certainly is! That is, the Islamic Faith are the ones in question; and the pages of History prove that beyond any shadow of any doubt.

    The following are quotes I retrieved from an article off the internet Titled: "Behold the Beast!"

    "After Islam became fully established, it revealed its true color as a rabid anti-Christian religion, and

    the blotting out of Christianity from under heaven has been a major aim of Islam ever since. In their quest to destroy Christianity, Muslims even went as far as to forge a false "gospel," allegedly written by Barnabas.1Following in the footsteps of their prophet, Muhammad's successors, the Khalifahs, launched a Jihad against Christendom - in Mesopotamia, Asia minor, central Asia, and in Egypt - killing millions and forcing the rest to embrace Islam.2 Then they attacked and occupied Jerusalem. As if all this wasn't enough, on the very site where the magnificent temple of the "I AM" once stood, the Muslims chose to construct the Dome of the Rock and their third most "holy" mosque (the mosque of Omar)."

    1"The Muslims undid most of the achievements of the early apostles by invading Christian populated North Africa, slaughtering many, and forcing the rest to Islam at the point of the sword. Even today it is a crime to preach Christ in most of the Middle Eastern countries. For instance, in Arabia, if a Saudi National is found to be a Christian, he is beheaded.The battle-hardened Islamic "missionaries" swept over Palestine, drove on to Persia, continued their drive into northwest India, and settled finally on the southern steps of Russia. They overran Spain and invaded France. Thank God for Charles Martel who halted their advance into Europe. But for that battle, Islam could have overrun the whole continent. Sadly enough, Islam is now using their petrol dollars to achieve what they could not accomplish earlier through the sword. Through its control of oil, Islam is now expanding at the expense of the Christian world." 2

    "Muslims are taught that if they confess that Jesus is the Son of God they will have committed the ONLY unpardonable sin in Islam (shirk)."

    Surah 9.30 "The Jews call 'Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!"

    "On October 10, 732 AD, Christian forces under the leadership of Charles Martel defeated a Muslim army waging a war of aggression and conquest.Charles Martel held the post of Mayor of the Palace in the Austrasian empire which included most of modern day France, belgium and the Netherlands along with parts of Germany.The battle is taken as a turning point in the continuing invasion of Christian lands that had been conducted by the Muslims since the invention of the Muslim religion in Arabia.Muslims had already overrun and enslaved or forcibly converted the Christians of the Middle East, Anatolia, Egypt, North Africa and Spain, stealing Christian lands and incorporating them into various newly created Muslim kingdoms. At Tours their march of conquest was handed a major defeat and the Muslim advance halted, for the most part, in western Europe. The Muslim wars of conquest would continue in the East with the enslavement of most of the Near East and India and Muslim aggression that would reach the gates of Vienna before finally being turned back in 1683." I will add here: "At which point they became the Beast that WAS NOT! We await them to come into power one more time, so that, as John had stated: "They will be revived." With that thought in mind consider the following quote:

    "That western Muslims wish for reinterpretation of the Quran "U.S. mosques that feel the Koran should be interpreted with consideration of its purposes and modern circumstances: 71 percent" should be no surprise considering the Quran's content. That the grip of Islam is tightening on the U.S. is obvious, with the most radical sect in Islam the "Wahabi" in Saudi Arabia, and the Saudis, spending over 10 billion dollars EACH year setting up mosques as well as Islamic centers in university environments, in the U.S. alone. With 62% of the mosques having been established since 1980." What do we actually see going on here? Is it not a very insideous growth, as it says slowly tightening its grip on the United States, and no one too much is taking any notice; because they are not aware of what it might mean?

    It should be noted at this point, that there are as far as I know, 192 separate Nations seated on the Board of the United Nations General Assembly; one of which is the Nation of Islam. Go one even better, Barak Obama the President of the United States happens to be a Muslim himself. So few would even ever notice this but the Beast that WAS and then, WAS NOT has already been revived, in, that, they now hold that power on that Board. But who would suspect anything too threatening was involved with that? It would be taken as just a matter of course. Big Mistake!

    What is it in the Bible that would zero right in on the Nation of Islam, of John's Beast that, WAS, WAS NOT, and was to be REVIVED AGAIN? Consider the dream Nebuchadnezzer had of the run of the World powers from his time down to the British Americah World Powers of today, represented by the feet and the Toes! {Revelation 17:11}

    31 "You looked, O king, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. 32 The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. 34 While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were broken to pieces at the same time and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth."{Daniel 2:31-35 NIV}

    36 "This was the dream, and now we will interpret it to the king. 37 You, O king, are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; 38 in your hands he has placed mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds of the air. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold."{Daniel 2:36-38 NIV} In his dream Nebuchadnezzer envisioned four World Powers, of which he was the Head of Gold. Then, Medo-Persia- Greece, Rome, and the British American World Powers of today. Being the Head Nebuchadnezzer dominated that immense Image, and like any body with a head would be connected to the feet, and the feet of course would move at the will of the head, and would carry that body where the head willed it to go. So when the feet and toes arrived on the scene, they would naturally have the exact same mind-set as the head; and would behave in the same manner as the head. As has been exactly the case, with the Nation of Islam, as already seen.

    So, it can be seen, that Nebuchanezzer certainly did have an Anti-Type, that Anti-Type being the Nation of Islam. Up to now, because this article may be quite lengthy, I will have to break off at this point; but I have yet to show that the Little Horn of Daniel 7:8 and John's Beast that WAS,WAS NOT and was yet to be REVIVED at Revelation 17:11 was an eighth King; both one and the same entity. As I will show in a follow up article this Eighth King turns out to be the Nation of Islam, who at the end succeeds in gaining the worship of all Mankind; that is all but the faithful worshippers of Jehovah. More or less a play-back of Nebuchnezzers Giant Image that required the worship of all living at that time. The feet and toes of another of Nebuchadnezzers dream will constitute the final part of Nebuchadnezzers giant image. That will be pulverized by the stone not cut out by human hands, and bring their reign of terror to a final and complete end. {Daniel 2:34,44} Wannabe

    You're just trying to make the failed prophetic writings of an ancient culture look like they haven't failed yet, so that you don't have to face the reality that you and your ilk have made poor choices by wasting your lives following them.

    Give it up, already.
