The final beast kingdom is beginning to be formed in the Middle East right now. Out of this kingdom will come the Antichrist as the king of the north from Daniel 11. He will unite the Islamic world in a showdown with the West and the West will lose. How could this be?
The Bible says the end-time, 10 nation kingdom will be in place before the Antichrist makes his appearance [Dan 7:8, 23-24]. Imagine what will happen when he steps up into power uniting Islam around the world.
