I've speculated in previous posts about the Antichrist being a clone--made from the active blood found on the Mercy Seat that is on the Ark of the Covenant. I would like to achieve an amount of precision as to who he is, as spoken of in the Book of Revelation.
Alright, the Antichrist or the "man of sin" is not the first beast that is depicted in Revelation 13. In this sense the Antichrist is not the "beast." Notwithstanding a second "beast" comes up "out of the earth..." (Rev. 13:11)--so in this other sense the Antichrist is a beast.
Verse 12 closes with the 2nd beast causing "the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed." Could this mean that the Antichrist--the 2nd beast not yet fully realized and thus not yet presented to the world as its savior--causes people to worship the 1st beast?; the history-spanning beast system as finalized by Barack Obama, who was presented during the presidential campaign of 2008 as a Messiah? The following verse (13) opens with "...he doeth great wonders..." It appears that the pronoun "he" here refers to the person who closes out the previous verse (12)--that being the first beast. What I'm saying is that the "he" in verse 13 (and going on into verse 14) is the first beast--again. For it is "he" working deception through "miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed." And so the first beast performs miracles "in the sight of" the 2nd beast (the Antichrist). This 2nd beast is also the "image of the beast." He is the personification of the beast system (NWO) or Babylon (that encompases commercial Babylon); the opposite of the kingdom of heaven. But more importantly the 2nd beast is the expression of Tammuz, who was believed to be the reincarnation of his father Nimrod--and Nimrod said that he was the personification of Marduk (Satan). Tammuz was also the son of Queen Semiramis, who styled herself as "the queen of heaven"--supposedly the foreshadowing of Mary who as a virgin gave birth to Jesus (for Genesis 3:15 prophesied of the seed of the woman). And Tammuz suffered a "deadly wound" to the head, which was echoed by the 1st beast. (Rev. 13:2) Thus the 2nd beast is Satan personified, and he is the son of the queen of heaven: as Jesus is the Son of God. He is the clone of Jesus Christ, who is the "express image" of the Father. (Hebrews 1:3)
Now in Rev. 19:20 we have this: "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." The beast in this verse is the Antichrist--the image of Nimrod=Marduk=Satan--or the 2nd beast of Rev. 13. The "false prophet" is the 1st beast--the great world empires from Nimrod's Tower of Babel to the nearly realized New World Order under Barack Obama. Speaking plainly, the false prophet is Barack Obama.
I can only guess as to the nature or the essence of a "human" clone. If Prince William is the clone of Jesus--for he was born on the Summer Solstice (June 21) of 1982--then he is the Jesus of Satan. Then it follows that this Satanic Jesus--in his development from boy to man--will replicate the life of Jesus Christ to some extent. The date of the former's birth is important because he will turn thirty years old in June of this year: 2012, which is where the Mayan Calendar ends and which is also (synchronistically) the Year of the Dragon. Jesus Christ apparently became aware of who he was and of his special mission on the earth around twelve years old. (Luke 2:41-47) Maybe Prince William became aware of his future role (as the Antichrist) when he turned twelve. Jesus Christ was baptized at thirty years old. (Luke 3:21-23) Matthew 3:16 says of him: "...when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him." Could it be that when Prince William turns thirty this coming June 21st, he will be fully realized as the Christ in place of Jesus Christ?--in other words, the Antichrist? As it says of the prince of Tyrus in Ezekiel 28:2, "... and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God..." Of course the Antichrist will reflect Jesus Christ (when he was here on earth). Jesus said: "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak." (John 12:49) Therefore the "man of sin" will speak the words that Satan directs him to because he is Satan--an imperfect reflection of the Son and his relationship to the Father.
I take it that we are now in the thousand years spoken of in Rev. 20--at the very end of it. As the Old Testament demonstrates, the number 1,000 is never meant to be taken literally--that is never meant to mean exactly 1,000 years or 1,000 hills: "For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills." (Psalm 50:10) So this thousand years began when Satan was bound in chains (Rev. 20:2)--meaning he was held back from furthering the reign of terror that was the slaughter of many Christians by various emperors during the days of the Roman Empire. Satan has been prevented from being able to operate on the earth at his full capacity against the church for a long time now. He has been chained up within the earth? His sons (of Cain) have been working for millenia--by way of their rituals--to break his metaphysical chains. And they are so close to doing so. Not that the thousand years couldn't be ahead of us also: beginning with the defeat of the Antichrist in the soon approaching final battle of Armageddon--which is to take place in North America (US)--and ending with God devouring with fire the Gog and Magog army (far into the future). Immediately after which the devil is cast into the lake of fire, "where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever." (Rev. 20:10)
