Polycarp (ca. 69 – ca. ) warned the Philippians that everyone that preached false doctrine was an antichrist.. Irenaeus (2nd century AD - c. ) held that Rome, the fourth prophetic kingdom, would end in a tenfold partition. The ten divisions of the empire are the "ten horns" of Daniel 7 and the "ten horns" in Revelation A "little horn," which is to supplant three of Rome's ten. In Christian eschatology, the Antichrist, or anti-Christ, is a person prophesied by the Bible to oppose Christ and substitute himself in Christ's place before the Second term (including one plural form) is found five times in the New Testament, solely in the First and Second Epistle of John. The Antichrist is announced as the one "who denies the Father and the Son.". We must identify it carefully because the biblical characteristics identify it as the antichrist of prophecy and history. There must be no mistake in making this identification. 7. Does the Bible give clear points identifying antichrist? Yes. God’s Word gives us nine characteristics of the antichrist in Daniel 7 so we can be certain of his. B. In the Apocalypse.—Nearly all commentators find Antichrist mentioned in the Apocalypse, but they do not agree as to the particular chapter of the Book in which the mention point to the “beast” of xi, 7, others to the “red dragon” of xii, others again to the beast “having seven heads and ten horns” of xiii, sqq., while many scholars identify Antichrist with the.

Quotes from the Antichrist Church. (On the Authority of the Councils, book 2, chapter 17) "The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth." (Pope Pius V, quoted in Barclay, Chapter XXVII, p. , "Cities Petrus Bertanous) Catholic Church Speaks Against God's Word. Those whom the Pope of Rome doth separate, it is not a man that separates them but God. For the Pope holdeth place on earth, not simply of a man but of the true God.” (Source: “Decretals of Gregory IX,” Book 1, chapter 3.) Pope Pius V blasphemed, “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.   The prophecies of Daniel speak of four Gentile world powers that would dominate the land of Israel until Christ returns. Historically we know these to be Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. Rome is the fourth part of the image of chapter 2, one that divides into two legs (as actually occurred with Rome) and later into 10 toes or kingdoms (which also occurred historically when Rome fell and. Tertullian looking to the Antichrist wrote: "He is to sit in the temple of God, and boast himself as being god. In our view, he is Antichrist as taught us in both the ancient and the new prophecies; and especially by the Apostle John, who says that 'already many false-prophets are gone out into the world' as the fore-runners of Antichrist".

  The Book of Revelation comes from a tradition known as apocalyptic literature, which generally proclaims what it claims to be the holy word of God. In the case of canonical literature, this is true. Apocalyptic literature is highly symbolic and metaphorical, and much is not meant to be taken in anything remotely resembling literal interpretation. Protestants were driven to the Papal-Antichrist theory by the necessity of opposing a popular answer to the popular and cogent arguments advanced by the Church of Rome for her Divine authority. Warburton, Newton, and Hurd, the advocates of the Papal-Antichrist theory, cannot be matched against the saints of the Church of Rome. It had been revealed to the apostle by the Spirit that the church was to be exposed to a more tremendous assault than any it had yet witnessed. Some twelve years before the epistle was penned, the Roman world had seen in Caligula the portent of a mad emperor. Caligula had claimed to be worshipped as a god, and had a temple erected to him in Rome.   And the marks [all the vices] of Antichrist plainly agree with the kingdom of the Pope and his adherents. For Paul, in describing Antichrist to the Thessalonians, calls him 2 Thess. an adversary of Christ, who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God.
