Because of the parallels between Gilgamesh and Nimrod, many scholars agree that Gilgamesh is Nimrod. Continuing with Gilgamesh's fable, he did win, he did vanquish Huwawa and took his head.

Therefore, he could come back to Uruk and other cities and tell the people not to worry about YHVH anymore claiming that he killed our Creator over in the Lebanon mountains. Gilgamesh, then instructed the people to just live however they wanted, stating, “I will be your king and take care of you.”

Please share your thoughts on this theory in the comments... "There are still other parallels between the Bible and the Gilgamesh epic: ...Gilgamesh did just as the 'sons of god' in Genesis 6 did. The 'sons of god' forcibly took men's wives. The Epic says that is precisely what Gilgamesh did.

The Bible calls Nimrod a tyrant, and Gilgamesh was a tyrant. There was a Flood in the Bible, there is a flood in the Epic. Cush is mentioned in the Bible, Kish is in the Epic. Erech is mentioned in Scripture, Uruk was Gilgamesh's city." So, is the epic a revision of the true occurrences of the Bible? [1]

Recently, I stumbled across Kieland Edmonds blog THE SOAPBOXER Reformation & Eschatology. I’m going to do my best to give justice and honor to Kieland’s incredible research.

In this article, Kieland lays out a mind-blowing case presenting the Antichrist as being a resurrected Nimrod, and explores the prophecies of the Antichrist’s briefly victorious war against Heaven, explaining in detail who the man behind the myths really is, as well as identifying the many masks that he has worn throughout history.

Every one of the gods—Cernunnos, Saturn, Orcus, Hades, Kronos, Pan, Shiva, Osiris, Sin, Apollo and Apollyon—are the same. The mystery is, what was this god’s original identity?

If Nimrod is the same as Apollyon, king over the demons of the Abyss, then he is in fact the eighth and final antichrist that rises from the Underworld, that is, he is the one of seven kings who comes back to life.

Nimrod is speculated to be the same as who history has known as Sargon of Akkad, meaning “the true king”. Nimrod is also known as the “war-god” Asshur, which brought forth the name Assyria, corresponding to the Antichrist’s title in Isaiah 10:5, “the Assyrian”; and in verse 12, “the King of Assyria”.

Nimrod was, in fact, the founder of the first imperial powers of Babylon and Assyria. Further connecting Nimrod to both the Antichrist and “the Assyrian”, Micah 5:6 says, “They will rule the land of Assyria with the sword, the land of Nimrod with drawn sword. He will deliver us from the Assyrian when he invades our land and marches into our borders.”

Nimrod’s major feat was the construction of the Tower of Babel, that was supposed to be the successful war against God and His angels. The tower was supposed to be his means of reaching heaven with his earthly armies and overthrowing the heavenly government to become God himself.

Consider the inspired texts not counted in our Bible—namely, the Book of Jasher. Many are skeptical about this book’s credence, but it was, in fact, referenced to in 2 Samuel 1:18— “Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.” It is also mentioned in Joshua 10:13— “Is not this written in the book of Jasher?”

One of the greatest clues as to the identity of the Antichrist is in Revelation 17. The Prophet John is shown a vision of a harlot riding a seven-headed beast. The identity of the harlot is plainly written in verse 5: “Babylon the Great, the mother of Harlots and abominations of the Earth”, later referred to as “that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”

In verse 9, it is revealed that the seven heads of the beast beneath her represent the seven mountains on which the great city of Babylon sits—mountains also represent kingdoms. Of course, each kingdom has its own king, and so verse 10 reveals a correspondence, that “there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.” So, we have here a scale of time, seeing that five of the seven kings had already come and gone before the time of John, and the last two were yet to come.

This image of seven great historical kings illustrates the seven foreshadowing types of the Antichrist throughout the whole of the Babylon world system in its various mutating forms, generally agreed to be Babylon, Egypt, Assyria, Medo-Persia, Greece, the Roman Empire, and a seventh Kingdom, which may have been Nazi Germany; after all, the commonality that defines these seven evil kingdoms is their dominance over God’s chosen people under the rule of a powerful satanically inspired leader.

Here’s a list of seven very famous candidates.

Babylon: Nimrod — became the god-king of a one-world kingdom and sought to usurp Heaven.

Egypt: Thutmose III — the first pharaoh, a self-proclaimed god who enslaved the Jews (not to be confused with the Kazarian Jews) and sought to destroy their entire race by having the male children drowned.

Assyria: Sennacherib — a mighty conquering king who disregarded any god but himself and warred against Judah.

Tyre: Ithobaal III — a Phoenician king, equated with Lucifer in Ezekiel 28, “…thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God…”, also a perfect resemblance to Nimrod.

Greece: Antiochus Epiphanes — a Greek tyrant who established an altar of Zeus in the Jewish temple and offered a pig, a foreshadowing of the future Antichrist’s “abomination of desolation.” He forbade the worship of Yahweh under penalty of death.

Roman Empire: Nero — a bloodthirsty emperor famous for the gruesome martyring of Christians, lighting some on fire as a lamp for his garden, regarded by the Carthaginian writer Tertullian to be the first persecutor of the Christians, and an excessively violent one. Nero was the one that existed in the time of John when he wrote of the seven kings, “five are fallen, and one is…” Only one is yet to come after Nero “…and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.”

Nazi Germany: Adolf Hitler — the occult-obsessed Chancellor of Germany, undoubtedly the next great evil leader who followed the perfect antichrist archetype by slaughtering the Jews to the brink of extinction and coming within a breath of seizing all of Europe. His brief but mighty reign in history is the “short space” of time that John prophesied of concerning this seventh king.

These are likely candidates as the seven heads of the beast, and as you can see, the heart of Babylon’s Nimrod was shared by the other six who followed, showing that the same spiritual force was guiding each of these seven great kings. The spirit relating the seven kings was none other than the spirit of Satan himself, as evidenced by the King of Tyre’s comparison to Lucifer in Ezekiel 28, where we see these attributes of striving to usurp God’s throne first manifest in the Devil…

Ezekiel 28:13-17, speaking of both the King of Tyre and Satan Ezekiel 28:13-17— “You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: carnelian, chrysolite and emerald, topaz, onyx and jasper, lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl.

Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared. You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.

Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So, I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So, I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.”

Just as Christ is the head of his seven accumulated churches, the Antichrist will also be the head of his seven accumulated kingdoms. Where the seven churches make up the Body of Christ, the seven evil kingdoms make up Revelation 17’s “scarlet colored beast”, the dragon, on which Babylon has ridden throughout history. But here comes the real mystery.

Revelation 17:8 “The beast that thou sawist was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”

Revelation 17: 11 “And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.”

So, the final Antichrist himself is said to have existed, then not existed, and then rises up from the bottomless pit in the end times to fulfill the last war against God. This Antichrist beast has seven heads, and the Antichrist himself is one of the seven—the seven historical tyrants.

“…the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven…” The final eighth antichrist will be one of the seven dead tyrants who came before, resurrected from the dead, as the passage explains how he will “ascend out of the bottomless pit”. The bottomless pit is synonymous with the Greek Septuagint’s “Abyss”, a term for the underworld, a sort of spiritual prison beneath the surface plane of the earth.

The word is borrowed from the Greek abussos, meaning “deep”, implying that this “bottomless pit” is indeed what is commonly known as the “underworld.” The Abyss is the realm of the souls of the dead. To “ascend out of the bottomless pit” might mean that the Antichrist, one of the seven tyrants, will rise from the dead and rule the world one last time.

A dead king… So, which one? Nimrod? Pharaoh? Sennacherib? The King of Tyre? Antiochus Epiphanes? Nero? Hitler? Each dead king is occupying the Abyss, but which one will rise again as a dark counterfeit to the resurrection of Yeshua?

Revelation 13:3 “And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.” One of the beast’s seven heads—kings—received a fatal wound.

Verse 14 then tells us that the False Prophet will tell people to make an image to this resurrected king “which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” Here is an IMAGE OF THE BEAST CAN BOTH SPEAK AND MOVE. MEET THE GIANT STATUE 2021 COMING TO 21 CITIES THIS YEAR.

So, which of the seven historical kings were killed by a sword? Hitler shot himself, or as the unofficial reports say, secretly fled to Antarctica. Nero had his private secretary Epaphroditos assist his suicide, stabbing himself in the neck with a dagger. Antiochus died of a disease.

Regarding the King of Tyre, not much is said of his death, except the prophecy in Ezekiel 28, which said to him, “thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.” Drowned in the ocean, perhaps? Sennacherib was killed by his two sons, Adrammelech and Sharezer, who smote him with swords.

Little is said about the death of Egypt’s Thutmose III, so a natural death and mummification at the end of a 56-year life is generally agreed. Nimrod, however, was decapitated by a sword.

And Nimrod and two of his men that were with him came to the place where they were, when Esau started suddenly from his lurking place, and drew his sword, and hastened and ran to Nimrod and cut off his head.” (Jasher 27:7)

If Revelation 13:14 tells us that the Antichrist was one of the seven kings who died by way of a sword. Revelation 13:14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. Nero only used a dagger, not a sword, and he couldn’t be the future Antichrist because he was the king that was alive at the time of John, while the beast is said to have occupied the Abyss at the time of John.

Revelation 17:8 The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and yet will come up out of the Abyss and go to its destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because it once was, now is not, and yet will come.

Revelation 17:11 The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction. That narrows it down to Sennacherib and Nimrod.

Although the text says that one of the beast’s seven heads was wounded to death, this does not imply that it is specifically the king’s head that is wounded. The king is simply represented by the head of the beast. If it were a wound on the king’s head, then we would know right way that the Antichrist is Nimrod, but it merely states that the king himself was slain by the sword. Having said that, I do think it’s interesting that Nimrod’s head was cut off, just like the head of the beast that might possibly represent him. Let’s call it a clue.

The fifth angel sounds his trumpet and an angel is permitted to unlock the Abyss:

Revelation 9:2 “The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace.” And up come locust-like hordes of demons that proceed to torment people for five months.

The clue here is in verse 11— “They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer).” In this verse, we are to understand the name of the King of the Abyss, and it is Apollyon, Abaddon, meaning “Destroyer”.

Mind you, the final eighth king, the Antichrist, is one of the seven historical kings, which means that one of the red dragon’s seven heads is the final Antichrist himself. This is the end-time worldwide political force that wages war against God and the remainder of His chosen people on earth, as well as the angelic army of Heaven itself, as evinced by Daniel.

Daniel 8: 9-12 Out of one of them came another horn, which started small but grew in power to the south and to the east and toward the Beautiful Land. It grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them. It set itself up to be as great as the commander of the army of the Lord; it took away the daily sacrifice from the Lord, and his sanctuary was thrown down. Because of rebellion, the Lord’s people and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything it did, and truth was thrown to the ground.

This is exactly what Nimrod strode to accomplish but failed to. Will he return in the final battle to finish what he started, and even succeed to a certain extent, bringing into the modern world arcane knowledge as to how to construct a new, better Tower of Babel, a gate to God?

I know a lot of this can sound quite fantastical and farfetched, but seeing the surreal sci-fi era of super-intelligent technology and weaponry that we are currently advancing into, I don’t actually find it all that hard to believe. I think we need to wake up from our slumber and start taking the Bible at its word; after all, it is the very word of God, even if it sounds inconceivable within our current understanding.

And you may be asking: why would God allow, and even predestine, the Antichrist, a man, to succeed as far as entering heaven and overthrowing the true sanctuary itself? Remember, this is the last thing that happens before the evil army is defeated in battle and finally cast down to earth where the Antichrist and all his forces perish in the plain of Armageddon.

The usurping of heaven is only temporary, and it will serve as the pinnacle of iniquity, to cap sin with one last ultimate act of the greatest evil before the eternal kingdom of Christ brings in everlasting righteousness. It will prove exactly how evil mankind is by displaying how far people are willing to go to rebel against God—as far as heaven itself.

After the point is made, the flame of Satan’s conquest is stamped out forever. [2]

Ephesians 2: 8-9 tells us that is for by grace are we saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. I invite you to accept this gift today. Now is the time! Left Behind? 1:30 gap & to 4: 40
