Chapter 2- The Action
1. Antichrist Begins to Manifest Himself to the Jew
Antichrist, being a Jew, will be circumcised; he will observe the Mosaic Law, and finally he will give himself for the Messiah whom Israel still expects, and he will be received by those whose names are not written in the Book of Life, in the Book of the Lamb. (Apoc. 13:8). Hence Our Lord thus reproaches the Jews, "I am come in the name of my Father, and you receive me not; if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive." Jn. 5:43). St. Irenaeus, St. Hilary, St. Ambrose, St. Augustine, St. Jerome, and St. Damascus are of opinion that Our Lord makes allusion in this passage to Antichrist.
2. He Achieves the Conquest of the World and Makes Jerusalem its Capital
Antichrist will naturally meet with obstacles in carrying out his designs. The ten kings, who, according to the prophet Daniel and St. John, will have divided the Roman empire among them, shall endeavor to conserve the independence of their realms and consequently will resist him with fire and sword. "I considered," says the prophet, "the horns, and behold another little horn sprung out of the midst of them, and three of the first horns were plucked up at the sight thereof. . . And these ten horns shall be ten kings, and another shall rise up after them, and he shall be mightier than the former, and he shall bring down three kings." (Dan. 7:8 & 24). "He shall take possession of the land; Egypt will not escape his power. . . he shall pass into Libya and Ethiopia." (Dan. 11 :42-43). St. Jerome has left us the interpretation of the Fathers, which is corroborated by all ecclesiastical writers who have since treated the question. At the end of the world, after the destruction of the empire, ten kings will divide among them the fragments of the Roman empire; then an eleventh king will enter the scene and conquer three of their number: the king of Egypt, the king of Africa [Libya, re: St. Hippolytus on the Antichrist], and the king of Ethiopia. After their death, the remaining seven laid their scepters at the conqueror's feet. (Dan. 7 [esp. 24-25]).
1) It was Our Lord Jesus Christ who quoted the book of Daniel as a defining reference to the abomination of desolation. Do not downplay the importance of that.
2) This almost completely happened already during the time of two persecutors of the Church. Diocletian is one (whose name in a specialized Greek spelling of his time on a few coins in Graeco Latin would, in the Greek Isopsephia that St. Irenaeus refers us to, spell the number 666 which is the number of the name the Full Consensus of the Church Fathers tell us the Antichrist will bear - concerning Diocletian, this is of typological importance since he is in the past tense). Diocletian in fact conquered Egypt, Libya and Ethiopia of his time and totally subjugated the ten Dioceses of the Roman Empire under him with a four part division of the same ten Dioceses, not referred to here, that also was under his complete rule. See Note One. below. That ten and four part division was predicted by St. Hippolytus based on his exegesis of the Apocalypse and the Book of Daniel a century before Diocletian. Diocletian's persecution is when, by Diocletian's command, the use of the Teserea and the Libellus - the Mark of the Beast, was used to the utmost in the ancient Roman Empire to force Christians to either deny Christ or die. The Martyrs chose to die now and inherit eternal life. Julian the Apostate, in the same century as Diocletian's rule ended in, almost succeeded in making an Apostate Jew ruled Jerusalem the center of a revived pagan Roman Graeco-Egyptian religion - the same thing the Apostate Vatican is trying to do now. To follow the Vatican (since its Apostasy beginning in 1958) in any way is to take the Mark of Beast. God commands His people NOW to come out from her and be separate and touch not the unclean thing. 2Cor. 6:14-18 and Apocalypse 18.
3) The Vatican (in Latin the Vatican is Vaticanus and in the pagan context meant "divining serpent") has returned to being only a temple of Satanic Antichrist False Prophet infidel iniquity. We must not have anything to do with them at all on pain of eternal damnation.
4) The final fulfillment of the Antichrist and the Abomination of desolation will happen centered in Jerusalem and we are forewarned and must have nothing to do with any of it upon penalty of eternal damnation.

The Four Districts, and the Dioceses throughout the four, of the Roman Empire all ruled by Diocletian. His sub emperors ruled in three of the four for him and he ruled in the fourth over all - notice that his direct domain included Jerusalem; in St. Hippolytus, seven and eight and ten and [Diocletian as a type in his time was] the eleventh who cast down three [Egypt, Libya and Ethiopia - the ancient boundaries are meant] and ruled as the eighth over the seven and thence the whole world. This is part of the world wide recapitulation of iniquity (recapitulatio universae iniquitatis) as exegeted by St. Irenaeus. See: The Mark, the Name, the Number of the beast and the Tower of Babel = Ecumenism
See below for the number of divisions in the Roman Empire which varied and as actually finally recorded is after Diocletian. Diocletian typologically fulfilled this in his time. St. Hippolytus gives us the prophetic number of ten [also meaning fullness] and of four [also meaning worldwide] as the coming to power of the Antichrist and also an eleventh power (given St. Hippolytus' context, keep the Apostate Vatican in view and ultimately an individual coming forth from there - also this, the Antichrist will be a Jew) to keep in mind in these current times (Anglo-American or Russia-Chinese or Nato-Eurasian or ultimately World wide Zionist, it will be revealed in its time.)
TREATISE ON CHRIST AND ANTICHRIST.
WARNING OF THE ANTICHRIST IN THE FUTURE:
25. Then he says: "A fourth beast, dreadful and terrible; it had iron teeth and claws of brass." And who are these but the Romans? which (kingdom) is meant by the iron--the kingdom which is now established; for the legs of that (image) were of iron. And after this, what remains, beloved, but the toes of the feet of the image, in which part is iron and part clay, mixed together?
And mystically by the toes of the feet he meant the kings who are to arise from among them; as Daniel also says (in the words), "I considered the beast, and lo there were ten horns behind it, among which shall rise another (horn), an offshoot, and shall pluck up by the roots the three (that were) before it."
And under this was signified none other than Antichrist, who is also himself to raise the kingdom of the Jews. He says that three horns are plucked up by the root by him, viz., the three kings of Egypt, and Libya, and Ethiopia, whom he cuts off in the array of battle. And he, after gaining terrible power over all, being nevertheless a tyrant, shall stir up tribulation and persecution against men, exalting himself against them. For Daniel says: "I considered the horn, and behold that horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them, till the beast was slain and perished, and its body was given to the burning of fire."
26. After a little space the stone will come from heaven which smites the image and breaks it in pieces, and subverts all the kingdoms, and gives the kingdom to the saints of the Most High. This is the stone which becomes a great mountain, and fills the whole earth, of which Daniel says: "I saw in the night visions, and behold one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and was brought near before Him. And there was given Him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom; and all peoples, tribes, and languages shall serve Him: and His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom shall not be destroyed." He showed all power given by the Father to the Son, who is ordained Lord of things in heaven, and things on earth, and things under the earth, and Judge of all: of things in heaven, because He was born, the Word of God, before all (ages); and of things on earth, because He became man in the midst of men, to re-create our Adam through Himself; and of things under the earth, because He was also reckoned among the dead, preaching the Gospel to the souls of the saints, (and) by death overcoming death.
27. As these things, then, are in the future, and as the ten toes of the image are equivalent to (so many) democracies, and the ten horns of the fourth beast are distributed over ten kingdoms, let us look at the subject a little more closely, and consider these matters as in the clear light of a personal survey.

Prophecy Of Ezechiel
The prophet sees in a vision the abominations committed in Jerusalem; which determine the Lord to spare them no longer.1 And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in my house, and the ancients of Juda sat before me, that the hand of the Lord God fell there upon me. 2 And I saw, and behold a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins, and downward, fire: and from his loins, and upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the appearance of amber. 3 And the likeness of a hand was put forth and took me by a lock of my head: and the spirit lifted me up between the earth andthe heaven, and brought mein the vision of God into Jerusalem fn.‘n’, near the innergate, that looked toward the north, where was set the idol of jealousy to provoke to jealousy. 4 And behold the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision which I had seen in the plain. 5 And he said to me: Son of man, lift up thy eyes towards the way of the north. And I lifted up my eyes towards the way of the north: and behold on the north side of the gate of the altar the idol of jealousy in the very entry.
6 And he said to me: Son of man, dost thou see, thinkest thou, what these are doing, the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should depart far off from my sanctuary? and turn thee yet again and thou shalt see greater abominations. 7 And he brought me in to the door of the court: and I saw, and behold a hole in the wall. 8 And he said to me: Son of man, dig in the wall. And when I had digged in the wall, behold a door. 9 And he said to me: Go in, and see the wicked abominations which they commit here. 10 And I went in and saw, and behold every form of creeping things, and of living creatures, the abomination, and all the idols of the house of Israel, were painted on the wall all round about.
11 And seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and Jezonias the son of Saaphan stood in the midst of them, that stood before the pictures: and every one had a censer in his hand: and a cloud of smoke went up from the incense. 12 And he said to me: Surely thou seest. O son of man, what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every one in private in his chamber: for they say: The Lord seeth us not, the Lord hath forsaken the earth. 13 And he said to me: If thou turn thee again, thou shalt see greater abominations which these commit. 14 And he brought me in by the door of the gate of the Lord's house, which looked to the north: and behold women sat there mourning for Adonis. 15 And he said to me: Surely thou hast seen, O son of man: but turn thee again: and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
14 "Adonis"... The favourite of Venus, slain by a wild boar, as feigned by the heathen poets, and which being here represented by an idol, is lamented by the female worshippers of that goddess. In the Hebrew, the name is Tammuz.16 And he brought me into the inner court of the house of the Lord: and behold at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men having their backs towards the temple of the Lord, and their faces to the east: and they adored towards the rising of the sun. 17 And he said to me: Surely thou hast seen, O son of man: is this a light thing to the house of Juda, that they should commit these abominations which they have committed here: because they have filled the land with iniquity, and have turned to provoke me to anger? and behold they put a branch to their nose. 18 Therefore I also will deal with them in my wrath: my eye shall not spare them, neither will I shew mercy: and when they shall cry to my ears with a loud voice, I will not hear them.
fn. ‘n’ Dan. 14, 6.
1-Ver. 3. The statue of jealousy which stirs up jealousy: the statue which provokes the Lord's jealousy for his honor. This was the statue of the goddess Ashera erected by the wicked King Manasse[cf. 4 Kgs. 21, 7 (449); 2 Par. 33, 7. 15 (519)]. Though it had been removed by King Josia [4 Kgs. 23, 6(451)], it had been set up again in the repaganizing of Jerusalem that followed on Josia's death.
2-Ver. 5. He: an angel accompanies Ezechiel in these visions and represents the voice of the Lord; cf. Ezech. 40, 3f (1000).
3-Ver. 10. Creeping things and loathsome beasts: Egyptian deities, which were represented in animal form. During the last days of Jerusalem King Sedecia was allied with Egypt, trusting in it for protection against the Chaldeans.
4-Ver. 14. Weeping tor Adonis, i.e. Tammuz: the Withering of trees and plants in autumn was thought to be due to the descent.of Tammuz, the Babylonian god of fertility, to the nether world of the dead; this descent was bewailed by the women.
5-Ver. 16. Bowing down to the sun: sun worship had been made an important part of Judaite idolatry by the impious kings; cf. 4 Kgs. 23,11 (452). a
6-Ver. 17. Put the branch to their nose: the meaning is certain. It refers to an Egyptian practice imported into Juda: the Egyptian sun god Re is pictured with a vine branch at his nose, signifying the transfer of creative power (divine breath) to living things, especially included in this practice was the sacrifice of infants to Mammon-Re as a way of influencing and divining the future and the disembowelment of these children for the conjuring of the demon they believed was attached to the soul of these “immaculate” children as they called them in Graeco-Egyptian religion which dated back to 1500 B.C. Such rites were and have always been abominable to the Lord.
Prophecy of Ezechiel
Prophecy of Daniel
Prophecy of Daniel
War between Syria and Egypt
The angel declares to Daniel many things to come, with regard to the Persian and Grecian kings: more especially with regard to Antiochus as a figure of Antichrist.1 And from the first year of Darius the Mede I stood up that he might be strengthened and confirmed. 2 And now I will shew thee the truth. Behold there shall stand yet three kings in Persia, and the fourth shall be enriched exceedingly above them all: and when he shall be grown mighty by his riches, he shall stir up all against the kingdom of Greece. 3 But there shall rise up a strong king, and shall rule with great power: and he shall do what he pleaseth. 4 And when he shall come to his height, his kingdom shall be broken, and it shall be divided towards the four winds of the heaven: but not to his posterity, nor according to his power with which he ruled. For his kingdom shall be rent in pieces, even for strangers, beside these. 5 And the king of the south shall be strengthened, and one of his princes shall prevail over him, and he shall rule with great power: for his dominion shall be great.
2 "Three kings"... Viz., Cambyses, Smerdes Magus, and Darius, the son of Hystaspes.-- Ibid.6 And after the end of years they shall be in league together: and the daughter of the king of the southshall come to the king of the north to make friendship, but she shall not obtain the strength of the arm, neither shall her seed stand: and she shall be given up, and her young men that brought her, and they that strengthened her in these times. 7 And a plant of the bud of her roots, shall stand up: and he shall come with an army, and shall enter into the province of the king of the north: and he shall abuse them, and shall prevail. 8 And he shall also carry away captive into Egypt their gods,and their graven things, and their precious vessels of gold and silver: he shall prevail against the king of the north. 9 And the king of the south shall enter into the kingdom, and shall return to his own land. 10 And his sons shall be provoked, and they shall assemble a multitude of great forces: and he shall come with haste like a flood: and he shall return and be stirred up, and he shall join battle with his forces.

6 "The daughter of the king of the south"...

7 "A plant"... Ptolemeus Evergetes, the son of Philadelphus.

Ptolemeus Philopator, son of Evergetes.16 And he shall come upon him and do according to his pleasure, andthere shall be none to stand against his face: and he shall stand in the glorious land, and it shall be consumed by his hand. 17 And he shall set his face to come to possess all his kingdom, and he shall make upright conditions with him: and he shall give him a daughter of women, to overthrow it: and she shall not stand, neither shall she be for him. 18 And he shall turn his face to the islands, and shall take many: and he shall cause the prince of his reproach to cease, and his reproach shall be turned upon him. 19 And he shall turn his face to the empire of his own land, and he shall stumble, and fall, and shall not befound. 20 And there shall stand up in his place, one most vile, and unworthy of kingly honour: and in a few days he shall be destroyed, not in rage nor in battle.
16 "He shall come upon him"... Viz., Antiochus shall come upon the king of the south.-- Ibid.
16 "The glorious land"... Judea.
17 "All his kingdom"... Viz., all the kingdom of Ptolemeus Epiphanes, son of Philopator.-- Ibid.
17 "A daughter of women"... That is, a most beautiful woman, viz., his daughter Cleopatra.-- Ibid.
17 "To overthrow it"... Viz., the kingdom of Epiphanes: but his policy shall not succeed; for Cleopatra shall take more to heart the interest of her husband, than that of her father.
18 "The prince of his reproach"... Scipio the Roman general, called the prince of his reproach, because he overthrew Antiochus, and obliged him to submit to very dishonourable terms, before he would cease from the war.
20 "One most vile"... Seleucus Philopator, who
sent Heliodorus to plunder the temple: and was shortly after slain by the same Heliodorus.
A Figure of the Antichrist
21 And there shall stand up in his place one despised, and the kingly honour shall not be given him: and he shall come privately, and shall obtain the kingdom by fraud. 22 And the arms of the fighter shall be overcome before his face, and shall be broken; yea also the prince of the covenant. 23 And after friendships, he will deal deceitfully with him: and he shall go up, and shall overcome with a small people. 24 And he shall enter into rich and plentiful cities: and he shall do that which his fathers never did, nor his fathers' fathers: he shall scatter their spoils, and their prey, and their riches, and shall forecast devices against the best fenced places: and this untila time. 25 And his strength and his heart shall be stirred up against the king of the south with a great army: and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with many and very strong succours: and they shall not stand, for they shall form designs against him.
21 "One despised"... Viz., Antiochus Epiphanes, who at first was despised and not received for king. What is here said of this prince, is accommodated by St. Jerome and others to Antichrist; of whom this Antiochus was a figure.26 And they that eat bread with him, shall destroy him, and his army shall be overthrown: and many shall fall down slain. 27 And the heart of the two kings shall be to do evil, and they shall speak lies at one table, and they shall not prosper: because as yet the end is unto another time. 28 And he shall return into his land with much riches: and his heart shall be against the holy covenant, and he shall succeed and shall return into his own land. 29 At the time appointed he shall return, and he shall come to the south, but the latter time shall not be like the former. 30 And the galleys and the Romans shall come upon him, and he shall be struck, and shall return, and shall have indignation against the covenant of the sanctuary, and he shall succeed: and he shall return and shall devise against them that have forsaken the covenant of the sanctuary.
22 "Of the fighter"... That is, of them that shall oppose him, and shall fight against him.-- Ibid.
22 "The prince of the covenant"... or, of the league. The chief of them that conspired against him: or the king of Egypt his most powerful adversary.
25 "The king"... Ptolemeus Philometor.
30 "The galleys and the Romans"... Popilius, and the other Roman ambassadors, who came in galleys, and obliged him to depart from Egypt.31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall defile the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the continual sacrifice, and they shall place there the abomination unto desolation. 32 And such as deal wickedly against the covenant shall deceitfully dissemble: but the people that know their God shall prevail and succeed. 33 And they that are learned among the people shall teach many: and they shall fall by the sword, and by fire, and by captivity, and by spoil for many days. 34 And when they shall have fallen they shall be relieved with a small help: and many shall be joined to them deceitfully. 35 And some of the learned shall fall, that they may be tried, and may be chosen, and made white even to the appointed time, because yet there shall be another time.
31 "They shall place there the abomination"... The idol of Jupiter Olympius, which Antiochus ordered to be set up in the sanctuary of the temple: which is here called the sanctuary of strength, from the Almighty that was worshipped there.36 And the king shall do according to his will, and he shall be lifted up, and shall magnify himself against every god: and he shall speak great things against the God of gods, and shall prosper, till the wrath be accomplished. For the determination is made. 37 And he shall make no account of the God of his fathers: and he shall follow the lust of women, and he shall not regard any gods: for he shall rise up against all things. 38 But he shall worship the god Maozim in his place: and a god whom hisfathers knew not, he shall worship with gold, and silver, and precious stones, and things of great price. 39 And he shall do this to fortify Maozim with a strange god, whom he hath acknowledged, and he shall increase glory and shall give them power over many, and shall divide the land gratis. 40 And at the time prefixed the king of the south shall fight against him, and the king of the north shall come against him like a tempest, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with a great navy, and he shall enter into the countries, and shall destroy, and pass through.
38 "The god Maozim"... That is, the god of forces or strong holds.41 And he shall enter into the glorious land, and manyshall fall: and these only shall be saved out of his hand, Edom, and Moab, and the principality of the children of Ammon. 42 And he shall lay his hand upon the lands: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 And he shall have power over the treasures of gold, and of silver, and all the precious things of Egypt: and he shall pass through Libya, and Ethiopia. 44 And tidings out of the east, and out of the north shall trouble him: and he shall come with a great multitude to destroy and slay many. 45 And he shall fix his tabernacle Apadno between the seas, upon a glorious and holy mountain: and he shall come even to the top thereof, and noneshall help him.
39 "And he shall increase glory"... He shall bestow honours, riches and lands, upon them that shall worship his god.
45 "Apadno"... Some take it for the proper name of a place: others, from the Hebrew, translate it his palace.
Ver. 36-39.Instead of venerating Apollo, one of the gods of his ancestors, Antiochus
venerated, and even identified himself with, Zeus Olympios, whom the Romans equated
the god of their fortress in Rome, Jupiter Capitolinus, the god, of strongholds.
The False Prophet goes before the Antichrist
The Pope's Attitude towards Judaism
Journalist Robert K. Dahl says that Pope John Paul II's acquiescence to Judaism "has the appearance of treason, regardless of intent" (The Remnant, [St. Paul, MN], April 15, 1998). Indeed, in 1999, when John Paul II made the unprecedented decree that "the seeds infected with anti-Judaism" must "never again take root. . . " he was forbidding opposition to the religion of the Pharisees and proscribing the basis of the mission of Jesus Christ (Statement of Pope John Paul II in his "General Audience" at Rome, April 28, 1999, as reported in the official Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, May 5, 1999).
