Nation Confederation Under
the Antichrist (European
Antichrist, Artist Unknown
Hagee points out that the statue portrayed
in Nebuchadnezzar's Dream perfectly
describes the empires that would rule the earth from the time of the Babylonian
king until the end of the world (Daniel 2:31-35). According to Hagee the ten toes
of the statue will be some sort of European Confederation. Hagee claims that the
Antichrist will spring from one of these European groups. The mixture of the confederation
will be composed of autocracies and democracies from the old Roman Empire and
Hagee believes that this consolidated union of ten nations (European Union) will
exist in the last days.
Hagee claims that the Antichrist
is the "little horn that arises in between the 10 horns"---->10 Kingdoms
of the Roman Empire (Daniel 7:8).
When Hagee cites Daniel 7:8 he fails
to mention who the authors of Daniel were actually referring to when they
were writing of the "little horn". The "little horn" refers to Antiochus
IV Epiphanes, who disposed of other claimants to his throne. The 10 horns
refers to the line of Rulers in the Seleucid Dynasty which ruled Syria
after the death of Alexander the Great. It is interesting also to note
that there are currently more than ten member nations in the European Union.
