4.5 The rise of the Anti-Christ to power

When he comes to power, Saturn will be in the water sign of Pisces. Pluto will be very important in his life. When Pluto moves into the sign of Sagittarius we’ll see a lot of changes. This will be an influential time in his life. The evil being is currently dealing with money matters, creating a base for the Anti-Christ to rise on.

He is getting money from Arabs of all nationalities throughout the Islamic world to help support him in his efforts. He’s also, soon enough, going to help foster some revolutionary changes in Syria, Iraq and Iran.

The man will be called by a barbaric name
that three sisters will receive from destiny.
He will speak then to a great people in words and deeds,
more than any other man will have fame and renown. (Ι-76)

This man is destined to become a world leader even though he will be misusing this power. He is such a major figure it would be pretty hard to prevent him from coming to power.
The «three sisters» refer to the three Fates: the one who spins out the line of life, the other who measures the length of life, and the third who cuts it off at the proper length. His «name», in the manner of some countries, will be somewhat lengthy and sound somewhat «barbaric» to European ears. And some of the names he bears, if you look up their root meanings, will give some clue as to what he is destined to be. Various names mean various things: for example, the name Napoleon was derived from a Greek word which means "destroyer" or "terminator".

From the three water signs will be born
a man who will celebrate Thursday as his holiday.
His renown, praise, rule and power will grow
on land and sea, bringing trouble to the East. (Ι-50)

The «three water signs» will be predominant in his horoscope but I also was using that to indicate what location of the world the Anti-Christ would come from - the Middle «East». For, there’ll be three major bodies of water somewhat nearby – mainly the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, and the Arabian Sea. 
He will be a threat to all, but particularly to the East because he will be successful in conquering both China and Russia, and will have the entire Asian continent under his control. This will be the first and only time that the entire continent has ever been under one leader.

He will keep his origins obscure for security reasons. He will use it as a part of his mystique. But he will have connections with Libya and with Syria. He will use many channels to come to power.

He has spent his entire life in the cultural area, known as the Middle East. He has had some exposure to various political systems, and one political system which has particularly influenced him is that of Libya. It fits in with his studies about Adolf Hitler.

The bird of prey flying to the left,
before battle is joined with the French, he makes preparations.
Some will regard him as good, others bad or uncertain.
The weaker party will regard him as a good omen. (Ι-34)

This once again refers to some of the tactics the Anti-Christ will use. He will ferment rebellion within the countries he’s going to take over. He allows the various political splinter groups to believe he supports their cause and their point of view. He lets them think he’s going to help them rise to power again, although he doesn’t, obviously. He would be very good at using his «golden tongue» in making people believe things that weren’t true. By doing this he helps turn the country on itself from within, to weaken it against outside forces.

I can see why my translators relate this quatrain to Hitler and where they would get that, but I was mainly talking about the Anti-Christ. He will be following Hitler very closely. He will use guile with everybody. Remember your history books. From your point of view it’s the past, although it’s the future for me. Remember how Hitler talked his way into a lot of concessions that no one else would have dreamed of asking for.

In the beginning he will be looked up to as a world savior. He will have wondrous inventions that he will market and use to help people. He will make advances in computers, hydroponic gardening and in farming intensively to help alleviate hunger in the starving nations. People will look up to him because he will make a lot of money for them. He will be quite innovative, and this is how he will rise to power. He will appear to be a spiritual leader, but not in the conventional religious sense. He will have the power to use his energies on a high level to the point that he will even invent a computer that will function from a psychic brain level. 

A person will be able to turn it on by mentally commanding it, rather than even speaking to it. He will be able to control all computers that are networked – communications systems, satellite systems, and things of this type - at this present time throughout the world. Gaining the key to that system will give him a sense of power and when the mantle of complete evil takes over he will start exterminating the people he feels are useless to his system. This is when the chaos and the rebellion begin. We’ve also translated quatrains that said he would assassinate the leaders of the world; in a way he is assassinating them just by having them under his control.

This period of his life (1987) is spent in Egypt learning – «he makes preparations» - because Egypt is in a good location so far as the Arab world is concerned. He has equal access to both the Middle East and North Africa from Egypt. Egypt is also strong enough to protect itself from the other countries, so it is not apt to be run over by armies.

When it comes time for him to come to power he will go to the place where he sees chinks in the armor; a place where he can take advantage of the political system in such a way as to start gathering power unto himself. He will find ways to take over countries and take advantage of the loopholes in their system, and twist their power to his own means.

The antichrist very soon annihilates the three,
27 years his war will last.
The unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled;
with blood, human bodies, water and red hail covering the earth. (VIII- 77)

But there will be a lot of terrible bloodshed and war in the process. The Anti-Christ, surprisingly enough, will refuse to use nuclear weapons and do this through conventional warfare. He saves the nuclear weapons for other unspeakable deeds. That’s why I mentioned all the blood and gore in the quatrain too. There will be so many people being killed that the burial details won’t be able to haul them off fast enough. Everybody in the world will become accustomed to the sight of corpses, and the sight of death will not make people squeamish as it does now.

The entire world will be involved with it at one point in time or another. Sooner or later, it will involve the entire globe.

Kadaffi might be part of the original cause of the conflict, but when this point is reached, it will be many years later. Kadaffi will be part of the root cause. As the years progress he will become increasingly more crazy to where when the major conflict is reached he will no longer be capable of handling anything or functioning. He will still think he’s in power but his "yes-men" around him will actually be shielding him from the rest of the world. The way they will be treating him will be a diplomatic way of having him in a padded cell, so to speak.

He’ll think he is making decisions; they just simply won’t carry them out. And so the conflict will pass from their hands into other hands. Kadaffi is a posturing fool. Had he played his cards right he could have been the third Anti-Christ in order to reach the power he wanted, but he’s always sabotaging himself. There will be someone else from the same culture, from the same part of the world who will learn the lessons that Kadaffi did not.

He whose face is spattered with the blood
of a newly sacrificed victim.
Jupiter in Leo forewarns through prediction.
He will be put to death for the promise. (ΙΙ-98)

«The promise will be put to death for» is, on the one hand, the promise he made to himself to take over the world. And the promise, on the other hand, from the great karmic wheel that is power for bad will be counterbalanced by a power for good. If you will compare the effect of Jupiter in Leo against his horoscope, that is the forewarning through prediction that you can have. «Jupiter» is in «Leo» from August of 1990 to September of 1991. This is when he is beginning the realization of his ambition. He will start within his own country. From there he will just keep growing and becoming more greedy.

Symbolic references to Greek names were in Century V-27. The Adriatic Sea would be covered with Arab blood because there would be fighting all over the eastern end of the Mediterranean, including the Adriatic, Black and Caspian Sea areas. The leader from Persia was the one that eventually makes trouble for the rest of the world, but in the beginning he is not taken seriously because he appears to be "just another one wobbling in the mud pile" (V-27).

Look up the modern names for Trebizond, Pharos, and Mytilene to have clearer locations.

Note: the research shows that Trebizond is an ancient name for the city of Trabzon located on the northern (Black Sea) coast of Turkey. Pharos is an island off Alexandria, Egypt. And Mytilene is a city on the Greek island of Lesbos off the coast of Turkey. So we would interpret these references to mean that the Anti-Christ would come from Persia to occupy Turkey while Egypt and Greece trembled. (Also see century II-86)
