    • I made no such assumption, just cautioning against leaning too heavily on intellect.  Someone can understand all mystery and prophecy yet still be unprepared for His return.
    • Interesting topic MM! Not as simple as you may think. One may respect a person because of "Who" created them but not actually "like" that person but then again, as followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to love one another... Is this love  exclusive just for the brethren, or the person you respect but dislike?
    • The idea that Nero was the "one is" comes from the 7 kings in Rev 17:10. People believe that the 7 kings are Roman. Nero is the 6th and the 5 before him are the "...5 are fallen..." At least that seems to balance as there were 6 Roman emperors from Julius to Nero. With Domitian as the "one is" there is no balance; Domitian was the 12th Roman emperor. Rome as the Iron Kingdom is also impossible from the vision of the ram and goat from Daniel 8. This vision establishes the rough goat as Greece and the great horn as Alexander. From this great horn come four notable horns, the Diadochi, that ruled the Grecian kingdom in Alexander's stead. This is a matter of history and fulfills the prophecy to the letter. The little horn is the beast, as we all know from several biblical passages. This little horn comes from one of the four notable horns. Biblically there is no other possibility for the origin of the little horn, or beast, or AC. From this clear succession of kings, from Alexander to the little horn, we can factually conclude the little horn rises from contemporary Greece, Egypt, Asia Minor, or the Middle East as these four areas are the realms of the four notable ones, Ptolemy, Cassander, Seleucid, and Antigonus, that rose to power after the fall of Alexander. This succession has nothing to do with the Roman Empire. But it can be narrowed down a bit more. From the statue in Daniel 2 we see an interesting succession other than just empires. There is a regional constant in the succession. It begins with the great King Nebuchadnezzar. Babylon under Belshazzar falls to the Medes and the Persians. The Medo Persian Empire rules from Babylon. When Alexander defeats Darius, Alexander sets up his rule from Babylon. Since these three kingdoms, Gold, Silver, Brass, all supplanted each other in the same region, its compelling evidence the Iron kingdom would follow in this vein. Especially compelling is the statue connection. All five kingdoms, Precious Metals, Iron, and Iron mixed with clay, rise from each other; they flow from top to bottom and replace each other as noted in Daniel 2. Rome did not accomplish this as the Roman Empire did not control Mesopotamia. If the Precious Metals all ruled the same area it's more than reasonable the Iron kingdom would do the same as the geographic succession evidence is strong; and the lineage from Alexander, to the Diadochi, to the little horn is irrefutable and excludes any Roman connection. There is an empire that matches the description of the Iron kingdom perfectly. It existed as a dominate empire rivaling any in history. This empire is described; Dan 7:7 "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns." And, Dan 7:23  "Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces." This kingdom must be fierce, a destroyer, breaking, stamping the residue, and diverse from the others before it. Babylon, Persia and Greece were civil governments, as was Rome. The fourth kingdom must be 'diverse' from that. The fourth kingdom must also be a destroyer of the earth that breaks, bruises and stamps on the residue. Rome did not do this; in fact the opposite is true of the Roman Empire. The Islamic empire circa 700 to 1600 AD fits this description. The Islamic empire is religious, not civil. They trampled the whole earth defeating the Roman legions many times. They ruled over all the land of the great Grecian empire even subduing northern Africa and penetrating far north into Europe. They broke every image of a god or king and stamped the residue. In fact there are videos making the rounds of ISIS breaking images and then literally kicking and stomping on the broken pieces! The Islamic empire destroyed entire cities, forced religious conversions on pain of death or slavery, or crushing taxation, and if the stats are accurate murdered 250 million people and this at a time when the population of earth had not yet reached a billion! These acts are antithetical, and therefore 'diverse' to the rule of the Precious Metals and Rome. The Islamic empire up to 1929 when the Caliphate was abolished is the Iron kingdom. The iteration of that kingdom, now the iron mixed with clay, is what we see today. The current Islamic empire, ISIS (the iron), is made up of many nationalities (the clay). Further, Islam has infiltrated most countries. These adherents form their own communities in the host countries and even establish 'no go' zones to keep out the natural citizens. This is the fulfillment of, Dan 2:43 "And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay."  This fulfillment can also be extended to religious and psychological aspects.  Three things lead to the conclusion that Rome is the 4th, 5th, 7th, and or 8th kingdom: misinterpretation of Rev 17:10, improper dating of Revelation, and wishful thinking. The idea of Rome as the 4th and 5th empire of the statue is unmistakably incorrect.
