    I don’t know about Micah. Regarding Rev, my opinion, the eight is Titus.

    Mic 5.5 has a greater link with Dan 8: v8-9, and Dan 8: 22-23 because it identifies where the man of sin will come from. Grecian Empire split into 4 and Dan 8 tells us that out of their kingdom (one of the 4) will come the Antichrist, not the Pope. After all he is called the Assyrian and not the Romanian. Rev17:11 is more about the Beast Empire rather than the person Antichrist. 5 fallen being Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece – one is Rome. One yet to come Ottomans/Turkey. So now were are looking for the 8th which i feel may come from Turkey or the old Assyrian Empire because of Eze 38 39 and because of Noah”s descendant Japheth. As a side issue Russian is not Gog or Magog. Eze 38 39 says the war machine will come from the northern flank or quarter not as most teach the uttermost parts of the north.

    And these 10 kings need to be alive in the future and not past 10 kings because they hate the Whore – and you have to be alive to hate anything.

    Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

    But in saying all this i like to keep the door open so i may learn more in the future. We cant all be right.


    1. Hans,

      Several things. First, there is not singular Antichrist. Second, the Assyrian is transformed into Roman in some works among the Dead Sea Scrolls.

      I’m not sure, but you seem to suggest that Daniel, Revelation, etc… still needs to be fulfilled?

      Further, I think you miss my overall point about the author of Revelation’s use of Micah. It’s about intertextuality.
