It's been said that we've been transitioning out of the Age of Pisces and into the Age of Aquarius. Supposedly this period of transition began in 1845 and will end around 2200--when we will be in Aquarius proper. 2012 is the midpoint.
It looks like we will soon see the Daniel 8 war begin (once more). And a few years down the line--after the deceptive peace--the Ezekiel 38 (also Daniel 11) war will take place. That is the war in which the "man of sin" will come to his end. Could it be that "the rest of the beasts...prolonged for a season and time" (Daniel 7:12) is speaking of those "beasts" or nations who were (from a future perspective) allied with the Antichrist--having survived armageddon--will finally be dealt with around the point where the Piscean age officially ends and the Aquarian age officially begins? And Revelation 19:21--"the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse"--is speaking of the same thing?
