The Personality Of The Man Who Will Be The Beast
"And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up"
The prophet Daniel, as recorded in the Book of Daniel (see Sealed Till The Time Of The End), and the apostle John, as recorded in the Book of Revelation (see The Seals, Trumpets And Vials Of The Messiah's Return and The Return Of Jesus Christ - Are You Ready?), were given to record not only what the end-time "Beast" will do (see Will The Antichrist Have Your Vote? Will You Worship At His Church? and The Signature Of The Antichrist), but even his personality. We need not wonder what sort of man he will be. We know how he will talk and how he will behave.
Just a few points that we can read from the Holy Scriptures (see farther below).
As seen by Daniel:
"8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand." (Daniel 8:23-25 KJV)
As seen by John:
"13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." (Revelation 13:4-8 KJV)
This Day In History, February 3
19: Arminius (German name Hermann), died. The German tribal leader inflicted a major defeat on the emerging Roman Empire (see The Politics Of Rome) by destroying 3 full legions under Publius Varus in the Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD (see also Legions Of Men And Angels).
313: The Edict of Milan: Constantine the Great (see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy) and co-emperor Valerius Licinius met at a conference in Milan. They proclaimed a policy of religious freedom for their hijacked version of Christianity, ending the persecution of Christian-professing people (i.e. people who call themselves Christians while ignoring or rejecting what the Messiah actually taught; see Antichristians) in the Roman Empire. Rome's (including her later "Protestant" daughters i.e. Revelation 17:5) persecution of true Christians never stopped.
1014: King Sweyn of Denmark died. He was succeeded by his son, Canute II. After King Ethelred II of England ordered a massacre of Danes in 1002, Sweyn invaded Britain and conquered much of the country.
1160: Holy Roman Emperor Frederick Barbarossa catapulted live prisoners, including children, at the Italian city of Crema, forcing its surrender (see The Holy Roman Empire Of The German Nation).
1194: King Henry VI of Germany released King Richard I (the Lion-Heart) of England, who had been captured during the Third Crusade (see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy).
1377: Over 2,000 people of Cesena, Italy were slaughtered by Papal Troops. The murders became known as the Cesena Bloodbath during the "War of the Eight Saints" (1375 to 1378) - a war between Pope Gregory XI and allied Italian city-states led by Florence.
1451: Sultan Mehmed II succeeded to the throne of the Ottoman Empire.
1468: German printer Johann Gutenberg died. He is regarded as the first in the world to use movable type, thereby making mass production of books, including the Holy Bible, possible (see also How Many Pages Did The First Bibles Have? and Is God Using Electronic Books Now?).
1518: Pope Leo X imposed silence on the Augustinian monks.
1690: The first paper money in New England was issued in Massachusetts to pay Britain's soldiers who were fighting a war against France in Quebec.
1916: Fire destroyed the center block of Canada's Parliament Buildings. 7 people were killed in the blaze. Iron doors saved the adjoining Parliamentary Library, but the center block containing the House of Commons and the Senate had to be rebuilt. Reconstruction was completed in 1920. The word "Parliament" is from the French word, parler, which means to speak.
1917: A German submarine sank the U.S. liner Housatonic off the coast of Sicily. The U.S. severed diplomatic relations with Germany after the attack.
1920: After the First World War, the "Allies" demanded that 890 Germany military leaders stand trial for war crimes.
1958: The Benelux Economic Union Treaty was signed between Belgium, Luxembourg and Netherlands.
1962: The U.S. government banned all U.S. trade with Cuba after the failed CIA "Bay of Pigs" invasion of the island nation.
1966: The first controlled landing on the moon was made by the unmanned Soviet Luna 9.

1996: An earthquake measuring 7.0 rocked southwestern China, killing at least 302 people and injuring 15,000.
1998: Karla Faye Tucker was executed in Texas, thereby making her the first woman executed in the U.S. since 1984. She was convicted of murdering 2 people with a pickaxe in 1983. The Texas psychopath bragged to friends, and then to police after her arrest, that she experienced intense multiple orgasms with each of the 20 strikes of the pickaxe on her victims.
2010: Regina, the Crown Princess of Austria, died at age 85.
